New Year

A NEW CHAPTER OF LIFE

And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed,

which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned. Isaiah 29:11-12.

Every book is known by its title, it has chapters, sections and pages.
There are other parts of the book that is not commonly read; preface, foreword and acknowledgement.
The book is written to give specific information or for a purpose.
A book is not judged by the covers but it’s content.
This book has several other books insert, one theme and one message.
He book is very old, available and accessible but the words are always new.
The words of the book are plain but the meaning is sealed.
Reading does not translate to understanding, many read but few have insight.
Learning helps us with reading, understanding occurs when the seal is broken.

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit:for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.

The things prepared by God are written in this book.
It’s not a book of wishes but of plans, purposes programmed for pursuit.
Every detail from birth to death is included; my life is like a book written by God.
The things prepared by God are revealed or shown by the Spirit of God.
Jesus breaks the seal from the book for the words to come alive.
He is the saviour of the world, he opens the words of the book to truths instead of information.
The books of the book are the chapters of your life.
The words of the book are the paths and pages of life.
Your eyes and ears are opened to see, hear and understand the words of the book. Jesus Christ opens the chapters of life from the pages of the book.
The vision of all is on the pages of the book, new chapters is yours for the taking.

Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.” Psalms 40:7-8.

Prayer
Dear father, thank you for what you have prepared for me which is also written about me. The book unveils the details, my eyes are opened to see the chapters of life unveil in Jesus name.

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY

THANK GOD MY FATHER FOR ANOTHER GLORIOUS YEAR…..

WHAT CAN YOU SEE?

And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought. And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up:and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. Mark 8:23-25


“The greatest tragedy, is the presence of eyes without sight” says a wise man.
Never assume that everyone whose eyes is open can see. When the eyes is closed, one can reasonably assume lack of sight. But the real proof of sight is to describe what is seen


Okay, tell me your vision direction for 2018? Eh m! hmm! Working on it.
The man in the verse was healed of blindness, it’s assumed that everything was blank or dark before the healing experience. When he saw, he lacked the distinction between men and trees hence the need for a second touch.
So what can you see? This man left Jesus seeing clearly.


Sight and vision sound alike and come as pictures but have different source. Vision is the picture of the future from the pages of scriptures. The scriptures give light to see clearly what the new year has for you. Jesus is ever willing to heal the eyes and correct you sight and also your vision.


“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.


Vision is not by trial and error, twice seen by Jeremiah and correctly discerned on both account. The first look is always the best look!
The man that Jesus healed saw not clearly at first needing a second touch.

Jeremiah saw clearly both the first and second time; you shall see clearly!

For those that mock the visions of God and disdain the prophetic, every word from God is prophetic. It opens your eyes to see pictures from scriptures. What can you see in 2018?
What you see correctly from the word of God is hastened for performance. Until you see it from the word of God, you can’t see it in life; wait for it. Wait on the word, and the word of God will come to you.


You will see and eat of the good of the land in this new year.

” I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables,
that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time,
but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:1-3.


Prayer: Father thank you for restoration of sight and vision from the pages of scriptures. Hat eyes have not seen nor ears heard shall be the rider of the day in my life in Jesus name.

SHINE AS STARS

I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. Revelation 22:16.

Natural stars are seen at night, movie stars also followed suit with the slogan; stars come out at night. Stars are luminous bodies that reflect light from the sun and glow on night skies. Their radiance depend on reflection from the sun.

Financial stars are made, another truism that has been accepted by all. Jesus is the bright and morning star, he was neither made nor come out only at night. He was born a star and shines both day and night. His light is so radiant that the sun cannot compete with hike for brightness. While other stars need a light source, he is the source of light himself. Instead of sunlight he is the son-light that was seen by the wise men.

Day and night they followed the light from this star until they located him.

“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end:many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”Daniel 12:3-4.

Redemption is the birth of the bright and morning star in us. The wise still follow the light of the son to their appointed placement in life. Those that follow the light of the son are illuminated and bright in life. The light of the son lighten their path and their life.

The word of God is prophetic and releases light packets for continuous shining lifestyle. It is the book that makes stars from stones. The word of God is written for our illumination, its the key to a shining lifestyle.

From seasonal to continuous shining irrespective your location, a star is born. The light intensity determines our new dawn; changing darkness into day. Shine like a star in the new year, by divine connection to the bright and shining light, Jesus himself. Those that have the light never cease to shine by light from the son of God. Become a shining star unlimited by day or night, economy or location. As a heavenly being live above earthly restriction, be the light they see.

 ” We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 2 Peter 1:19.

Prayer: Father I thank you for sending Christ Jesus your son and the bright and shining star to the world. We are lit by his light to shine in our world. Let the pictures from scriptures continually illuminate us to shine in life by the same Christ Jesus our lord. He is my new dawn indeed.

HE IS IN CONTROL; I AM IN CHARGE.

 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder:and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. The greatest of kings of the earth Isaiah 9:6-7.

One of the words of Archbishop Benson Idahosa is “Jesus is in control but I am in charge” it was spoken in relation to a witches conference that was scheduled to take place at a venue not far from his church headquarters. The words were apt and captures the essence of the verse above. He was too sure that the government of this world spiritual and temporal was on Jesus Christ and he was appointed to take charge in the city where he lives. Many like him are taking territories and being in charge.

Jesus did not come to negotiate the throne of his father David but to establish and order it. David is a shepherd king that obtained an eternal and enduring throne. One of the greatest king that ever lived among men; prophet priest and king. The shepherds were holding vigil with the sheep knowing that from among them the greatest shepherd king is rising again to the throne to rule the world.

 “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” Revelation 22:16

Jesus is the son of David and the son of God; the King of kings and Lord of lords. He wins every battle, taking territories and captives in every nation. The kings of the earth are all subject to him; they tremble at his wonderful counsel.

His saints has he appointed kings and priest to reign on the earth. Those that know their identity as kings and priests will no longer live as nonentities on the earth but live and reign as a kings with him.

The presidents of nations are stooge before him the saints reign and rule. The government is upon his shoulder, he is in control, we’re in charge. His mercy extends to all that desire his rule in their lives. They are appointed kings and priest to reign with him on the earth. He is in control, we’re in charge! He was born to reign and make kings to reign with him. The knowledge of him makes and raises kings, priests from lowly shepherds.

“And hast made us unto our God kings and priests:and we shall reign on the earth. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders:and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.”Revelation 5:10-12.

Prayer; Father, thank you for the gift of your son Jesus Christ; the son of God and the son of David. We receive his grace that transforms us to kings and priests that we might reign with him. He is still in control and we in charge by his matchless name.

THE APPS STORE.

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.

The corporate world has taught many of us do much that it cannot be taken for granted. Some of the teachings are now customized as tenet of faith. Some have learnt them so well that they sound like revelation instead of information. It’s important that the two are differentiated. They don’t mix.

As the year begins, the talk about targets, strategies, time-lines sound good. So much information, but very little instruction; yearly, quaterly and monthly plans, not bad at all. Prayer becomes an endorsement of your plans instead of enquiry of his plans.

God does not endorse what he has not endowed. Those that seek God only find him wholly; it’s either all or not at all.

“Thus saith the Lord the maker thereof, the Lord that formed it, to establish it; the Lord is his name; Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jeremiah 33:2-3.

Faith starts when God speaks, the word of God is Apps for your life. These are the terms and conditions for his partnership. If God is not involved in its creation he will not be involved in its execution. Whatever he forms is what he establishes.

So, still waiting for endorsement? Stop wasting your time, vision and ambition don’t mix. God cannot work against himself, his word is his bond. God’s word is his wisdom; it created all things and has a plan for all. The year was created for you with package of benefits.

God’s word has better plans for you, the corporate world and for all. Get a plan from his apps store; the living word of God, it is written.

“For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.”

1 Corinthians 1:19-21.

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. Jeremiah 29:11-12.

I went to an engineering shed recently and a sign on the wall caught my attention ” this machine does not have a brain, use yours”

That got me thinking, thank God for a good head to think and provide solutions to life situations. Planning involves a good use of the thinking faculty. When thoughts are arranged in sequence a plan is born. That’s simplistic. Believers have been frequently accused of being zombies & lacking the capacity to reason or think, believing everything and are gullible to say the least.

Planning however is universal; the process of planning may differ. While some are working hard to create a plan another is waiting to receive the plan.

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit:for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.

God has a personal plan for you in the New year if you’re interested. It’s a plan like no other that has never been seen, heard, inaccessible to imagination. These have been prepared before the foundation of the world for your discovery. Every encounter with the spirit of the word is an opportunity to download these plans. The plan of men has the seal of humanity while the plan of God removes the limits off humanity. Are you thinking? No, am downloading from the word higher thoughts and higher plans. God has a plan for everything; that is the will of God.

I have connected to the word; download mode is activated.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”Isaiah 55:8-9.

BE YOUR OWN PROPHET.

But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. Proverbs 4:18-19.

I was listening to one who was clowning with the word of God. “My papa say, you are not permitted to have a better last year!” From the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks but that got my attention.# Those that know better become better. The light of God makes life better. When the light of God shines brighter this year than in the past year, the experience is a better year. Light determines your status in life, light is your right to life.

A better year starts with more light encounters. Revelation or access to the secrets of God Is the tool for better living. Understanding of global economics maybe the undoing of many. Light liberates, any information that incarcerates is darkness.

While some call it reality, remember faith is also reverse reality.

So what do you see in 2017?

“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.

It can only be well with those that see well into the New year. This is not imagination or positive thinking, this is revelation from the word. Those that see from the word of God see well. Those that rely on their imagination see not well. Your imagination does not control tomorrow neither can it change the word of God. Jeremiah saw two things, a rod of almond and a seething pot. One was good news, the other was bad news; it’s a balanced prophecy.

Even in economic recession, the rod of almond will blossom and flourish. Some persons will enjoy while others are enduring suffering. The seething pot of judgement is going to fall on the head of persons. And the location and description is given without bias to political orientation. The flourishing is coming with haste so also the judgement.

What do you see? Be your own prophet, let the word of God speak through you. Imagination is worthless in this regard, lies are helpless too. The sure word can deliver from impending doom and gloom.

Exemption is real, my case is indeed different.

“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:”2 Peter 1:19.

DAYSTAR; THE GUIDING LIGHT.

I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Revelation 22:16-17.

When I was younger & a fan of late night television, one advert stole my heart. “The stars come out at night!” this was the slogan for the late night movies which was the high point of television viewership for me at a time. No matter the activity, the late night movie was the conclusion of the day. One television station stole the show by screening thrillers late at night. Sometimes we had to hide after lights out at home to watch with reduced volume. That was then, this is now.

When I came in contact with the verses quoted, I was dumbfounded at first. How can a star shine by the day, a daystar? Stars come out at night. Then it dawned on me that this is my guiding light. Hmm! When life is served on the table, the daystar is your guide to abundant living.

Jesus says, I am the bright and morning star; the root & offspring of David.

“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.

It’s obvious from scriptures that the lord is my shepherd. The Son of God is our saviour, guide and guardian; bright and morning star. Every encounter with his light guides our feet out of darkness. The star and the guidance it gives cannot be disconnected from the person. This star is not seasonal nor bound by day or by night.  It’s brighter than the sun, moon and darkness to stand out. The wise men were guided on their journeys with precision to their destination. This star shows the future in prophecies that are sure. Every spark of light from the word of God is your guide in the path of life.

The star is the son who is also the word of God. Now I know that you cannot miss your way following the word of God. Landmark achievement are yours in this new year led by the daystar. There is a place reserved for you in life that the daystar reveals to you.

Have a glorious new year! Let the daystar be your guiding light.

“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:” 2 Peter 1:19.
