Watch Out That No One Deceives You

Darkness is increasing in the earth, lawlessness is on the rise as the bible predicted. The spirit of deception is getting rampant. Be alert and stand on the truth of God’s Word.

darkness-2

Jesus answered: Watch out that no one deceives youFor many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.  Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death,and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,  but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:4-14

The Man of Lawlessness

Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters,  not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you  in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.  He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

lawlessness

Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time.  For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way.  And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie,  and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie  and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

Stand Firm

But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as first fruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth.  He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. 2 Thessalonians 2:1-17

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.  For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. 2 Timothy 4:1-5

 

Understanding and Engaging Your Process

SCHOOLS IN THE SPIRIT

as-for-you-the-anointing-2

 

There are schools in the spirit that we enroll at difference seasons of our lives. When we do not understand migration and transition from one spiritual season to another, we are like zombies or robots in the spirit, control by circumstances and situations. At the end of a season or process, we struggle with spiritual dryness, bringing us to a place of wondering, why this is happening; after all the studies and meditation in the word, the fasting and praying. Times like these, we experience confusing dreams of walking with others and all of a sudden we are left behind; entering class rooms, either in a class that have been completed or in a higher class preparing to take a test or an exam. When the result is given, it is either failed, conditioned, or passed. Sometimes in our dreams, we see ourselves struggling to climb with difficulties and most times not succeeding. We also encounter broken bridges, large body of waters with no means of crossing, crossing large muddy swarms and is not able to reach to where we are going. In trying to find solution, we seek help through counselling, deliverance sessions, prayer, etc., but to no avail. In fact, it even intensifies because the mean issue is not deal with. Why do we have such experiences?

INTERNAL WEAKNESSES

These are situations and dreams of setback and non-achievements that occur at different interval of our migration or transition periods, which clearly shows our position as it relates to our inabilities to track God in certain seasons of our lives, it also shows our immaturity and indiscipline in managing his building process and transitions. Our orientation of demonic activities in the past have emphasize the enemy’s work against us; of course we are not ignorant of his devices, but this have hindered us from seeing our spiritual and emotional weaknesses. The outcome has been our constant failure to overcome a particular struggle in our emotion and spiritual journey with God. We always shift blame and do not deal with the real problems, which is, our inability to deal with internal weaknesses; lack of discipline, persistency and consistency to prevail over emotional and demonic issues and the lack of strength, understanding and internal ability to bring to completion the events and activities of the kairos that God has released to accomplish his purpose in us.

TRACKING YOUR MOVEMENT

Many times when an assignment or process is completed, you find yourself at a standstill. You know you have to move on but you are going in circles. Many times I have gone through this. There were times when I wake up in the morning, I feel so listless and disconnected from my surrounding, and my mind would be blank; not knowing where to start my day, even if I have plans for that day. During such times, I wouldn’t have the strength to pray or read the word, I would be in a complete state of confusion. If I did not deal with it in prayer, the day will pass without me accomplishing anything. today-is-a-day-of Sometime this goes on for hours, days, weeks and even months depending on the gravity of the spiritual state I am in.  When you are in such a state, you must determine to break loose from this. Demonic cycles are programmed against us, repeating certain challenges in our lives at certain time of the day, month, year, within certain activities, situations etc., to make us feel we are going nowhere and to also hinder our progress in God. Know that they manifest in different ways in your soul, your body, spirit, etc. depending on the situation in one’s life, some manifest as health and financial challenges, constant failures in your endeavors and relationships, whilst others are sailing in theirs.  It manifest itself as rejections, misinterpretation, accusations, depression, oppression etc.; these are all signs that you need to develop your spiritual capacity. i-am-scorned-by-all-my When you are going through these crisis, learn to track your movement in God.  How is your prayer life, is it growing and do you have a healthy relationship with Jesus and others? Are you conscious of your development in God and is aware of changes taking place?  Check your soul, is it healthy (3 John 2). How are you dealing with issues like anger, forgiveness, bitterness, frustration, resentment, unfulfillment that comes from national crisis, alarming world events, family issues, relationship, work and  business challenges.

If we must experience growth, there is a need to put a demand on the word to know him more? “Pay close attention to what you hear. The closer you listen, the more understanding you will be given–and you will receive even more.” (Mark 4:24 NLT) “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you–and even more.” (Mark 4:24 NIV) The more effort we put into seeking to understand spiritual truth, more spiritual truth will be revealed to us. If you give him a  cup of yourself, that is how much he will pour in, if you give him a larger portion of yourself that is how much he will pour in. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you–and even more.”   God rewards those who earnestly seek him (Hebrews 11:6); you do not have to be a theologian, but the spirit of God in you will teach you if you desire it. Learn to manage your process in the midst of the difficulties you go through, to avoid laxness or disconnection in what the Lord is doing in your life. I know it is difficult, because I have been there, my confession and faith in his word and promises have kept me going. “Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again–my Savior and my God!”  (Psalms 43:5 NLT)  There were times the Lord was hard on me and there were time he was gentle. He will always create the environment for you to grow in knowledge and in how to deal with spiritual and physical challenges. You are warned to be alert and sober. Many things that opposes the work of God in us, “make us strong”. the-righteous-person There were times I did not understand God’s process in my life, I would spend days crying with deep depression, no matter how much I cry or felt sorry for myself, It did not change the situation. If it did, it was only for a short time, then the same thing would repeat itself, until one day I heard the voice of God in my inner man saying,  “stop wasting your birth pain”.  During times like these, you need a rhema word from the Lord. It was during such time when my confession of the word grew and became strong, especially when I was threaten by constant afflictions and death.  It is a process you have to become conscious of.

SUPPLEMENT YOUR FAITH

supplement-your-faithThe Lord needs your corporation, he said, “He will never leave us, nor forsake us” there are somethings he wouldn’t do for you, because he expects you to apply his word. He is crafting you into his vessel of honor and his weapon of war. It is time to break those demonic circles by consciously engaging your process in God, it will enable you to develop the capacity you need to fulfill your purpose in your season and transit into your next assignment, season or process.  To break forth, keep God’s prophetic word focus in the midst of discouragement, hurts, angry, pain, reject, confusion etc., and hold on to his promises even when you are doubtful and fear what the future holds.

By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.  And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

 In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.

The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their old sins. II Peter 1:3-9 NLT

Resolve in your heart to never give up, note vs. 8, “The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ”, see your challenges as one of the ways God is developing your inner capacity. Supplement you faith, vs. 5 that is, add layers upon layers of godly principles and values. But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind” (2 Peters 1:9).  Your trials come to make your strong and mature. (James 1:2-4) Hold on to the confession of your testimony. “His strength is made perfect in our weakness and his grace is sufficient for us.” II cor. 12:9

It is my prayer that we move from that place of self seeking prayer, to that place of engaging our process to understand the mind of God for us. We should not be distracted by the pain and forget the child (vision, purpose,destiny), the pain is all a part of the process. 

We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.  Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies.

Yes, we live under constant danger of death because we serve Jesus, so that the life of Jesus will be evident in our dying bodies. So we live in the face of death, but this has resulted in eternal life for you.  That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.  For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!  So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4: 8-12, 16-18  

REFLECTION ON 2014 PROPHETIC WORD

Two years ago the Lord give us a command, “Raise the Platform for Kingdom Invasion and Advancement” and “Engage your Spiritual Territory to Extend your Boundaries.”  This article was written to reflect on and share what we have received from the Lord, creating the awareness of what God wants to do in our lives in the next few years.  We are in a season of many distracting situations, so we have to consciously track our movement towards God’s declared prophetic word given to us 2014 to guide and manage our building process, as the weight of darkness is increasing in the earth.

He is building our capacity to carry out his assignments in the midst of the increasing darkness that is coming on the earth. We have to pursue our development in God. Consciously engage our assigned territories in the midst of our personal struggles and challenges to rise above the crisis.

untitled-design

A command from God is able to produce an outward manifestation and bring transformation to the one who is engaged in carrying out the word. I hear the Lord says, “raise the platform for kingdom invasion and advancement”. His prophetic command is, “engage your spiritual territory to extend your boundariesPartner with me says the Lord (Isaiah 54:1-3). We must get the architectural design for our platform to accurately build it; it is imperative. We also need to identify our strategic pillars which are important to the firm upholding of our platforms.

The strength and capacity of our platforms and pillars determine how much kingdom weight we are able to carry. When our platforms are raised, it enhances how we interact with God concerning his invasion and advancement of his kingdom.
strong-pillars
We have been on a journeying with Him since 2014 and his prophetic command is our architectural blue print. To succeed on this journey, we must corporate with Him to continue the process of bringing us to a clean sense of mission, destiny, identity; an accurate understanding and awareness of His purpose.

Several phases of our journey in God have ended, each of us know how much have gone into our pillars and platforms. Many have receive strength and capacity along this journey. He is unfolding  new phases of our journey; we need to hear Him speak; the-destiny-of-my-spiritual-life-is-such-identification-with-christ-that-i-always-hear-him-and-i-know-he-always-hear-meto receive our road map for this journey, especially for those who have not started their process as it relates to these prophetic words.
We must ask Him to give us “ears that hear and eyes that see” (Proverb 20:12)…. seeing-eyes

He waken me morning by morning, wakens my ears to listen like one being taught, the Sovereign Lord has open my ears and I have not been rebellious, I have not drawn back. (Isaiah 50:2-5)

 

hearing-ear
Now that we are on this journey, we are still  hearing the voice of him sounding “Raise your platform for kingdom invasion and advancement and the prophetic command, “Engage your spiritual territory to expand your boundaries.” These are the icons we must click on to open more spiritual resources that are needed to bring us to that place of maturity and partnership with God. These icons have charted our course into 2014 and is doing so into the future.
As we have watched into the future, watching-into-2014-2017we stand in the reality of  2016 and we take the posture of  continuing our journey with God into the future. We position ourselves to allow his voice to shape us, this time into His platform upon which He will invade our earth, our world to advance His kingdom. He is redefining who we are, He is building strength, endurance, clarity, insight,  confidence, greater authority, son ship, etc., into our identity.
2016

Now that we are in 2016, let us look back at our journey, how far have we come since 2014?

images-5

What pillars have we built?

How stable is our platform?

Can God stand on it to evade our world?

Have we raise the pillars of strength, love, faith, endurance, clarity, prayer, integrity, greater authority etc.?

Have we engage our territories, are our boundaries expanded?

It is important to start tracking God and make the necessary adjustment. We should continue to position ourselves to receive instruction and the unfolding of his prophetic assignment, “Raise your platform for kingdom invasion and advancement”, and his prophetic command, “Engage your spiritual territory to expand your boundaries.”

As we watch individually into the future, let us network to set a Global and National Prophetic Watch for 2016 and beyond.

SUBJECT: WATCH OUT ON SEPTEMBER 19, 2016

September 2, 2016, I heard the Lord said, A portal is being opened, it is the “portal of engagement”. What comes out depends on who engage it and what they call forth. Watch out on September 19, 2016, it will open on the earth realm.
As I meditated and sought the Lord for clarity and more understanding of what he is revealing, I decided to check the net to gather information on any event of  significant taking place on that day that might give a club on what the Lord is saying. As I begin my search, I came across these information which I want to share with you.
I do not have instruction on what to do before or on that day. I believe if we seek God corporately, he will speak and tell us what to do.

Darkness is increasing on the earth as the word of God said in Isaiah 60:1-2, but we can not just sit back and let it over power us,  THERE IS HOPE. We are his watchmen, let stand on our watch and listen to what he will say concerning this.

WHO ARE WE

The Believers Prayer Movement is an assignment of the National Intercessory Network which is a sector of the Kingdom Glory Ministries International. The KGMI is an apostolic prophetic intercessory platform of building, raising the foundations of many generations; making ready a people for his coming; preparing the way of the Lord; declaring the kingdom of God and his present truth. Upon this platform, we sound a clarion call to all watchmen and intercessor, alerting them to the need of synchronizing their sound and prayer agenda with God’s present declared intent.

sofar3

It is a platform  of training, teaching, mentoring, activation and motivation.
What is The Believers Prayer Movement
global-prayer-network The Believers Prayer Movement is not a massive prayer gathering, but a gathering of personal and group prayers on a massive scale networking across the globe, synchronizing their sound and prayer agenda with God’s present declared intent (Isaiah 62:1,6,7). It is not prayer by a local church or an organization. It is prayer and intercession for the nations and church by the collective efforts of every believer in his or her area of influence or sphere of assignment and location.

They see themselves as God’s kingdom enforcers on earth and territorial occupants (Matthew 6:10; 16:18-19)  taking responsibility to execute prayers outside the walls of the church building into the spheres of the earth and their assigned territories, through their lifestyle, mentality and prayer.

MANDATE

“Take The Land”

PURPOSE

We seek to shift and shape the prayer emphasis to the dominion mandate; breaking out off the four walls of the church building, releasing prayer into the spheres of the earth and assigned territories. Raising gatekeepers,watchmen, and territorial occupants, mobilizing and networking watchmen and intercessors across the globe to gain territorial influence and occupation. (Genesis 1:26, 28; Revelations 11:15)

The Watchman Personal Spiritual Evaluation: The Inward Journey

Where are you now in God’s processing, How much has been accomplished in walking with the Lord as his watchman?  Do a critical evaluation of your spiritual state and learn to understand your assigned spiritual environment. Understand the times and season and God’s dealing with you in that season. The safety of your assigned environment is depended on your spiritual state as a watchman. If you lost touch with your spiritual environment, it create a vacuum that affects your effectiveness. Let us look at these verses.

“You have not gone up into the breaches, nor did you build the wall around the house of Israel to stand in the battle on the day of the LORD. Ezekiel 13:5

And I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none. Ezekiel 22:30

It is good to periodically do an evaluation of our lives and the state of our assigned watchman position. His watchmen are blind. All of them know nothing. All of them are mute dogs unable to bark. Dreamers lying down, who love to slumber. Isaiah 56:10

Let look at some conditions that influence our state positive or negatively base on our understanding of times and season.

I CA'T CHANGE

THE FLOOD

The whole world is going into darkness. For look! Darkness will cover the earth and thick darkness is over the people… (Isaiah 60:2) We are in the midst of a determined demonic invasion of believer’s mindset. (Psalms 74:3-9) It is in the midst of this demonic invasion God is building our internal structure so we will not drown.Consider it pure joy, my brothers, when you are involved in various trials,  because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance.  But you must let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing.” (James 1:2-4 ISV) The enemy has flooded the church with many contrary standards.

 

awo flood

“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and  his glory from the rising of the sun, when the enemy shall come in like a flood, the spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” (Isaiah 59:17)
Many are drowning in the flood. We should be alert as watchmen. The enemy will bring all sort of crisis and challenges to break our faith and strength in the Lord. Things are falling apart around us, believers love are waxing cold, economic difficulties are increasing, marriages are going into chaos etc.. Many things seen to contradict the word of God. In times like these, take a tactic retreat to strengthen your resolve in the Lord.  There is a need to take an inward journey to evaluate our standards, examine the walls of our lives, examine our assigned territories to know if they are secured, ask God to search us.
“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts, and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Ps. 139:23-24). Many crises cause us to go into the state of anxiety and we become disenchanted as Habakkuk. “How long, Lord, must I cry out for help, but you won’t listen? I’m crying out to you, ‘Violence!’ but you aren’t providing deliverance. Why are you forcing me to look at iniquity and to stare at wickedness? Social havoc and oppression are all around me; there are legal conflicts, and disputes abound. Therefore, the Law has become paralyzed, and justice never comes about. Because criminals outnumber the righteous, whenever judgments are issued, they come out crooked.” (Habakkuk 1:2-4, 12-17)
 ??Crisis???????????????????????????????????????????????????????\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

 

RAISING THE STANDARD

Times like these are difficult because the enemy make sure you are isolated by depression, rejection, misinterpretation You are usually misunderstood by people who don’t understand what you are going through, etc.  Being unable to deal with this, we enter into spiritual and moral decay, it clouds our vision and sight. Bombarded with problems from many sides make us weary and drains up our strength. We gradually drift into a state of neglect, which leads to complaining and grumbling (Deuteronomy 1:25-32). In such a state, we lower our standards and we unknowingly begin to flow with the flood. This is not healthy for the watchmen anointing, it dries it up. Many bulls have surrounded me; Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled me. They open wide their mouth at me. As a ravening and a roaring lion.I am poured out like water, And all my bones are out of joint; My heart is like wax; It is melted within me. My strength is dried up like a potsherd, And my tongue cleaves to my jaws; And You lay me in the dust of death. (Psalms 22:12-15). It does not allow you to feed on choice food, you drift from the presence of the Lord. These negatives experiences if not properly manage, will weaken our ability to protect our territory which results into the enemy devouring the harvest of our labor and life.  We can’t afford to allow this to happen. The word of the Lord says, “Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known unto God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:6-7, James 4:7-8).

His grace is sufficient for us and his strength is made perfect in our weakness. Do not frustrate his grace.  (II Corinthians 12:9-10) We sin by allowing anger, resentment, bitterness, doubt, fear, and even blaming God and other for our ordeal. We are in the days of trying times, we cannot allow the many crisis to wither our efforts and make us forget how far we have come with our God, and how he has proven himself faithful to us. (John 4:27, Psalms 18:16-20) Take note of verse 20 “The LORD has dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanliness of my hands he has rewarded me.“ We must learn to navigate through the storms with pure hearts and clean hands and not lower our standards, but become the watchman of our heart’s condition in trying times.Above everything else guard your heart,because from it flow the springs of life.”  (Proverbs 4:23).

 

THE ELIJAH SYNDROME
Let us take a look at Elijah’s experience. After a mighty demonstration of the power of God, there was a shift in the spiritual realm over Israel. Elijah was about to get a new assignment; the host of hell had encountered the power of God on His life and they knew what he was capable of doing. Many times when the crisis increase in our lives, it is because of pass casualties we have cause in the devil’s kingdom. He does everything within his power to put a check or restraining order on our movements. God also use this as a time to build our capacity for further assignments.He reached down and took me; he drew me from many waters. He delivered me from my strong enemies, from those who hated me because they were stronger than I. They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out to a spacious place; he delivered me, for in me he takes delight.”  (Psalms 18:16-19) He increases our capacity in difficult situations. God had released Elijah to raise a generation by multiplying his grace and power on that generation. This generation would destroy the kingdom of Jezebel and Baal, so there was a great mobilization to kill Elijah and thwart God’s plan of continuity. Being used to God’s dramatic demonstration, he expected God to intervene and overthrow Jezebel, but God had another plan. When we begin to experience crisis, that is a sign of change. As God’s watchman we must learn to hear his voice in every new season to know his next move. We should not assume that we already know or else we get frustrated in our effort.

God was planning to do a new thing, so far as God was concern the spiritual shift over Israel has taken place as he has determined. The next generation of leaders were released from the clutches of Baal. The Lord had to shift Elijah’s mentality towards his ministry’s approach; Elijah had to hear God in a brand new way.  God was about to take him through an internal structuring for his new assignment. This time God’s emphasis was not the external demonstration of power, but a whole new generations of leaders who would have the internal structure to destroy Baal’s kingdom. Elijah had become comfortable in his present position and I believe God had to use Jezebel to wake him up, like he is doing with so many of his watchmen now. This is what happens after many great battles, we tend to relax when the war is still on.
Elijah, I am sending you on another ministry assignment, but the preparation is a long way (II Kings 19:1-9). You have to eat to sustain yourself for the journey. Your word level determines how well you are prepared for the new assignment and how you are sustained in times of trials and difficulties (Psalms 119:105-109). The Lord asked Elijah, “What are you doing here?” He complained, the Lord did not address his complain, but instructed him to go to the mountain in the presence of the Lord. The drama came and passed, the Lord ask again, “what are you doing here Elijah?” Now take note, Elijah was instructed by the Lord to go to the mountain, and yet he asked him the same question. It was similar question he ask Adam, “Adam, where are you?” It is not that He did not know, but he was addressing the issue of the heart position. When we do not know how to handle crisis, we drift from our position of assignment, revelational strength, insight, understand and intimacy with God.

Elijah did not understand the progressive unfolding of God’s plan, because of the crisis in his life, he lost sight of God’s sovereignty. I assumed he had question like; is this not the same God who demonstrated mightily by releasing fire from heaven, is he not capable of dealing with Jezebel? After this encounter, Elijah complained, still unable to understand that God needed his attention. The Lord gave Elijah his new assignment before responding to his complains. (I Kings 19: 9-18) The Lord is shaping and forming us in the midst of the crisis to make us ready for our new assignment. When God is about to do a thing through us, it has nothing to do with our comfort or ease, because it is out of pain great thing are birthed.

keep your head up

OUR HEART CONDITION

Moving to new position in God, we need a heart of repentance. A complete change of mind, a new paradigm in him, it begin with a broken and humble heart, a heart that will realize it has drifted in the midst of the war, far from the standard (Psalms 32:2-9). We must set our hearts on pilgrimage and ask him for strength. “Blessed are those who strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.”  (Psalms 84:5) Come to him with a thirsty and hungry heart (Psalms 42:1-2). It is the heart condition and position in Him, which He is calling forth in this season. We must desire to know and seek him with fresh new vigor, in the midst of the crisis. God, you are my God! I will fervently seek you. My soul thirsts for you; my flesh longs for you in a dry, weary, and parched land.” (Psalms. 63:1-2, 6, 8)
awo stormThis new journey begin with a revelation of your present position, where are you, where are you going; where is God? (Psalms 42: 2-7). He is the light you need to light up your path, and give you direction (II Cor.4:6), you need a revelation of Him, pray the prayer of Paul in  Ephesian 1:17-19,I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the most glorious Father, would give you a wise spirit, along with revelation that comes through knowing the Messiah  fully.  Then, with the eyes of your hearts enlightened, you will know the confidence that is produced by God having called you, the rich glory that is his inheritance among the saints,  and the unlimited greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his mighty strength…”  He gives us light (revelation) through His words, we can only have it when we walk in Him, that is, our lifestyle must align with the word. The Lord wants to bring order into our lives.

Take an inward journey, renounce those sinful lifestyle, fear, doubt, anxiety, worry etc..; and adjust to the word of God. Let the word heal us, because time like these can be painful and damaging if not properly managed. God should reshape our perception instead of the crisis or the pressing situation. See the situation as God’s refining furnace, to bring the true gold in you (II Cor.4:7-11, 16-18).

YOUR WATCHMAN POSITION AND DECREE UPON YOUR WALL

Say no to all your trials, afflictions, difficulties, threat of death, sickness, financial hardship, marital issues, etc. You will not shape me, I refuse to walk outside my blue print and God’s purpose for me in this season. I will be conscious of my responsibility to align with God, He is building me, shaping me for my assignment and destiny, I will arise and build my broken walls and gates, I will not leave things unattended.

YOUR COMMITMENT TO GOD

Oh Lord build my inner core, let the structure of my heart have mass, strength and density. Remove every spirit of complacency that wants to weaken my core. I wouldn’t compromise the power of the kingdom of God in my life. I must learn to discern the times and seasons in you Lord, to know when you are moving and I move with you. Lord I must arise to take responsibility to apply the values and principles of the kingdom, let me not shift blame. I will uphold your word in my heart to always have an expectant spirit. By your help, I will not frustrate your grace, but walk in the vigilant and enduring spirit as your watchman.

I will walk in the powerful accuracy and confidence that comes from knowing my purpose of existence.  Lord I see and feel my pain and I also see the vast field of the harvest waiting for my rising. I commit myself to your process, I will bear the yoke Lord, I will arise.
