CAN YOU SEE?

And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days:but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings. Exodus 10:22-23.


The requirements for sight is possession of eyes and presence of light. In darkness, everyone is officially blind; I can’t see a thing!
Light is the universal necessity for sight, vision and direction. No matter how good your sight is, darkness obscures vision & direction. No matter how great your intellect or knowledge, without light, you’re learning is useless.


That was the situation in Egypt when the plague of darkness was unleashed. Everything and everyone was stranded even with their sophistication. The same is happening today, those expected to be wise become fools in the face of darkness. Foolishness becomes a virtue in darkness. There is no distinction nor discernment in darkness.

Can you see? What can you see?
The year is blank without the light from the son of God.

“Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us, To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” Luke 1:78-79.


Illumination is the si-ne qua non to vision and perception. In darkness we all look but not see; when you can’t see what God has for this year, you’re legally blind.


The day star is key to seeing eyes; it’s always day when the day star arises. Darkness is the curse and cause of blindness, the day star is the blessing of light converting your looking to seeing eyes by encounter with the day star.
Everyday becomes a great day when the day star arises in your heart. You’re not blind my friend, it’s just that the light from the son is unavailable.to you. Jeremiah began to see when light from the word of God came to him.


“Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree. Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen:for I will hasten my word to perform it. And the word of the Lord came unto me the second time, saying, What seest thou? And I said, I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is toward the north.” Jeremiah 1:11-13.
Prayer; My father, thank you for giving me a new year experience. The visIon and direction is also your gift. May light from your word illuminate my heart to you plans and purposes for the new year. I receive visIon & directions from your word today in Jesus name.

ANGELS AT WORK

And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven:and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac:the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; Genesis 28:12-13.

When the heavens open, angelic visitation & manifestation become common place. When was your last angelic visitation or have you ever had angelic intervention or manifestation? Sounds odd to some but it is a sign of open heavens. Angelic manifestation is rare without an open heaven experience.

Every seed of Abraham enjoys angelic manifestation and visitation; are you? A fact check of how many times Abraham had angelic touch may surprise you. Jacob had a dream of open heaven and a ladder set up with angels on transit. It may come as a surprise to some to know that the dream of Jacob is today’s reality. There’s a place where heaven meets with earth, a ladder set with angels going up and down. There is one centre close to you; Zion city of our God. If you don’t notice their activity, your eyes are obviously closed.

“But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,” Hebrews 12:22-23.

Are yours upraised that such a place exists today?

The church is not an ordinary place, it’s the heaven of angels and the habitation of God. It’s a pity that many go to church but they are not in touch, in a service but not getting the service of angels. Jacob was surprised too to find himself in such a dreadful place called the house of God and the gateway of heaven. He obtained the revelation of Christ by an encounter with angelic activities.

The season of the birth of Jesus Christ is also laden with angelic manifestation and visitation. Yours is included not excluded. Get set to have peace, good tidings of great joy, wisdom and revelation knowledge of Christ.

Angels at work. The kingdom of heaven has come!

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them:and they were sore afraid.” Luke 2:8-9

Prayer: Father, today I receive the revelation of angels intervention And manifestation as part of my open heaven agenda. These messengers of good news will deliver my own good news in Jesus name.

SIGNS AND WONDERS

Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? Isaiah 8:18-19.

A giant gives birth to a giant, not a dwarf. A mountain cannot give birth to a mouse. Crack words that convey deep meanings. God is great; his children are partakers of his greatness. God is a wonder, his children are wonderful people. His word is the guide to a wonderful lifestyle like his own.

God is alive & his words are living & powerful ;the shortcut to wonderful living. Seeking the future from the dead bring living to a dead end. The nature of the father is reflected on his children, so also the contrary. We reflect the nature of whomsoever we look up to.

Divine direction is the seal of sonship. Signs and wonders is the deal.

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:” Romans 8:14-16.

God has never hidden his prepared or expected end from his children. They are written and revealed to us from his word. His word transforms sighs and wanderers to signs & wonders by direction. His word is the instruction that make wonders of every believer. God does not have something less in stock to offer. This offer persists irrespective of  background or lowly status. Signs and wonders is the future & expected end or prepared place for sons. Those that follow his instruction to the letter end up as signs and wonders.

This is the cry of the spirit of God daily, sons becoming signs and wonders. Leave chance behind, become a sign and a wonder. This is the divine agenda for every son of God in the new year.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:11-13

Signs or sigh!

 “And she vowed a vow, and said, O Lord of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.”1 Samuel 1:11.

Its strange and new to many that the covenant requires an oath for performance. Many with the fatalistic view of an oath switch off and wonder. It’s amazing that some believers have lived without deep commitment to Christ. Most employers ensure a sign-in daily, and a letter of appointment issued at employment which is signed for. Salvation is signed-up for actively by a prayer of commitment. Every deeper walk with God is signed into actively. Without these signing-up moments, many have lived as freelance Christians. Check your commitment chart, check what is signed-up for in Christ. Fruitfulness is a covenant, healing is a covenant, protection is a covenant. When the blood is the seal, a deal must be cut actively not passively. This is why many confess Christ and yet end up disappointed. They have no deal, covenant responsibilities apart from church attendance.

“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.”Isaiah 1:19-20.

Unless a covenant is cut, the affliction continues. God has sworn by himself, brethren you’ve got to swear to partake. If you do not subscribe, the goods cannot be delivered. It’s for the willing and obedient, nothing for observers or spectators. Only covenant partners are entitled to covenant goodies. Without a covenant with God, the gospel becomes a second hand document. God deals with sons not with strangers! The covenant is the restriction to free lance Christianity. Without covenant responsibilities, a dearth of testimonies occur. Worship becomes routine and the gospel is viewed with suspicion. The good of the land is subscribed to by the covenant actively not passively. Sign up to become a sign or sigh through life. The choice is yours.

“For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.”Malachi 4:1-2.

So shall your seed be.

And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them:and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. Genesis 15:4-5.

The covenant declares the status of his seed long before they are born. Abraham had the promise of stars as sons. Everyone connected to this covenant is a star, they give birth to stars. Fruitfulness is included, it’s a must; status defined before conception. God is not cloning children but making stars as children, plenty in stock. Quality is emphasized, it is better not to live than be counted as a number. God showed Abraham stars, quality children; uncountable stars as sons. Many do not believe that a world of stars is possible; star world. That is the picture of the future that is guaranteed by the covenant. The covenant has fruitfulness as its emblem; so shall thy seed be! The easiest way to be fruitful is to connect to this covenant. That was what Hannah connected to for her change of story.

“And she vowed a vow, and said, O Lord of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.”1 Samuel 1:11.

Until you vow, you shall not be avowed. God is not a joker, his covenant is sure. The covenant terminates the affliction of barrenness and gives stars as sons. If the root is not barren, the leaves cannot be barren. Abraham enjoyed assisted conception by the covenant, so shall your seed be! God has vowed to give stars as children, he’s awaiting your vow. The covenant is a vow by God, you connect by a vow; sworn seeds. The covenant is the surety to have children as stars. This is fruitfulness with a plus; having seeds as stars. A guaranteed future, sure and defined paths, greatness on every side. The covenant grants children with a mission; so shall thy seed be! Stars are coming out of your bowels! The seed is sure, blessed and a blessing to nations and generations.

“That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”Genesis 22:17-18.

Signs given!

 Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. Isaiah 8:18.

God is a baby maker, signs and wonders are his franchise. The commandment to be fruitful and multiply is for quality seeds not quantity. Every covenant child is a sign and a wonder. God is proud of his children, their status is known before birth. Their life is a proof of their status; a promise fulfilled. God has such seeds waiting to be born than the desire to have them. Imagine where everyone is born great! What a world that would be. Signs and wonders are not products of chance, they are born. These children are pacesetters, and trailblazers. These are gifts from the lord of Hosts, who dwells who mount Zion. Those that like them never lack them; he gives to all that ask from him. The prayer of Hannah is instructive.

“And she vowed a vow, and said, O Lord of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.”1 Samuel 1:11.

Hannah asked for a son, he received the gift of a sign. Her covenant with God was the return of the same to God. Wonders come from God, it’s for those that ask of him It’s all yours for the asking, God’s wonder stores overflow with children. Your gift of wonders shall not be delayed or denied. When you are set to ask, God is set to give His store of wonders are inexhaustible, desire determines your portion. Every request for children end in signs and wonders. That is the covenant at work; covenant sons are signs.

“Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.” Job 9:10.

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”Matthew 7:7-8.

Signs and wonder

Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. Isaiah 8:18.

While many are seeking for children, God has a package of signs and wonders. Covenant sons are for signs and wonders. Every supernatural conception end up as a wonder. Supernatural conception start with signs following. Abraham and Sarah were too old to have children, the covenant dissolved old age. Sarah was amused at the idea of having pleasure, laughter became his name. With all the odds against them, the covenant was performed. The covenant is the only odd to conception, every other odd is cancelled. Signs are new events, that has never occurred before. The covenant gives rise to new things irrespective of challenges. When these new things are repeated they are wonders.

“Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty. O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name.“Psalms 74:20-21.

When the covenant is in force natural laws are suspended. The covenant respects nothing but the covenant. Everything in heaven and on earth have respect to the covenant. God respects the covenant also, signs & wonders are the proofs.. The covenant word is the seed of creation, it creates and recreates everything. Signs and wonder children are not convenient but covenant made. Supernatural conception is the master key to the birth of signs and wonders. Covenant Sons are for signs and wonders after the order of Isaac’s, Joseph’s Samuel and Jesus. They are no noisemakers but newsmakers. The covenant word creates signs and wonders as sons.

“Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.“John 1:13-14.

Blessing follow me!

O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord. Thus saith the Lord, Write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days:for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah. Jeremiah 22:29-30.

I have since imagined the earth to be an inert substance until I started seeing from scriptures the contrary. The earth is a living thing having ears to hear & witness the spoken word. The earth is usually taken by hand of some persons, words are spoken against others and the piece of earth released. That is a curse, and they take effect because it was powered by hell. Blessing is God’s word spoken over your life, written on the earth and powered by heaven. The earth take notes of blessing & curses; the earth is a living thing, a witness. No matter the distance away from where the word is declared it is potent. The word of God dissolves curses and blessings follow you. The earth yields whatever is programmed within her.

“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it:and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”Genesis 1:28.

Blessings replenish the earth, curses destroys the earth. Blessing is God’s franchise, God has spoken and blessing must follow. The word of God on the earth is that we be fruitful and multiply. Curses came late, and they are expunged by the same word. Only a blessing can terminate a curse, not complaining. Pick up the earth and declare, I am programmed to be fruitful and multiply. It’s an act of faith but it terminates every curse on your earth. You are walking out of curses and blessings are following you. What you don’t want, don’t watch; take responsibility to replace curses with blessing. It’s your heritage in Christ. Blessing follow you! Be fruitful and multiply. Fruitfulness is not negotiable, the fruit of the womb is not debatable. Replace curses with blessings, that is the covenant the earth is your witness.

 “Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:”Genesis 49:25.

Remembered

And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad. And they rose up in the morning early, and worshipped before the Lord, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah:and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the Lord remembered her. 1 Samuel 1:18-19.

Does God forget? Why is there a waiting period for answered prayers. Valid question begging for answers. The first part is not mine to answer, the second part is already answered. None is ever forgotten by God, you are always remembered. If your case is not forgotten then God does not forget. Hannah was remembered, something changed; her approach. God is God whether he gives you a child or not; worship him. Instead of being sad, she asked for help, vowed and worshipped God. Doing the same thing and expecting a different result is foolishness. Every appearance before God should be for an encounter, not routine. This time her appearance was registered, hence her remembrance. Every connection with God in Zion results in a change of story. Who else was remembered? Rachel.

 “And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb. And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach: And she called his name Joseph; and said, The Lord shall add to me another son.”Genesis 30:22-24.

Remembrance is an acknowledgement or acceptance of your worship. Every contact with this wonder God leaves behind a tale open wombs. Every prayer is answered, every desire is granted and every expectation met. This happens when you meet with God. Hannah met with God and was remembered, so also Rachel. It’s not synonymous with how many times you have prayed, it’s happens when God meets with you. It’s beyond being in church but being in touch. Someone is overdue for an encounter with God. It’s your season of remembrance; as soon as he hears, he remembers.

Who else will be remembered?————-/——- Every encounter with God is for your remembrance. Those that are remembered have their babies as a proof.

 “The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee; Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion; Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.”Psalms 20:1-4.
