TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL (Thursday 1ST July 2021)
Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the LORD and against his anointed, saying, “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.”
The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.” Psalm 2:1-6 NIV
WELCOME TO THE 182ND DAY OF OUR YEAR OF HIGHER HEIGHTS!
Today is the first day of a new month – the seventh month of the year. Glory be to God for ushering us on Eagle Wings to this month. There is no one like Him! You ride on Eagle Wings of Jehovah is your GOD. He has not just been our God but our refuge. Underneath have been His everlasting love.
The best partnership in the world is not partnership with men but with God. If you partner with men, they will fail you. But if you partner with God you will never be disappointed. It is only in a partnership with the true GOD that we can experience His Kingdom, power and glory.
For covenant keepers, Heaven releases the blessings of the covenant into our lives as we move from one month to another, and one year to another. I believe that blessing has been released. You did not Cross into this month like an ordinary person. Covenant keeping is one of the most sacred walks of Sons with their GOD. That is why it is not for Children.
Children cannot keep the covenant. They complain a lot and see too many challenges around them. They do not have capacity to ignore their problems and say yes to God. That is why only sons enjoys the manifestation of God as covenant keeping God. Children enjoy His manifestation as loving God. But Sons enjoy His manifestations as both loving God and a covenant keeping God.
When the covenant keeping God meets His covenant keeping people, there are always sparks in the Spirit and releases of Heavenly treasures into their lives.
This morning I want you to consider being a covenant keeper if you are not, so that you will begin to see the manifestation of God in your life as both loving God and covenant keeping GOD. Your destiny will need covenant keeping to be fulfilled. Don’t allow anyone to confuse you about that.
EVERY SIGNIFICANT DESTINY WAS ANCHORED ON A COVENANT BEFORE IT WAS FULFILLED.
If you have a significant thing to do with God, you will need to attach your life to a covenant to be able to do it. That is the secret! That will make you very effective in the hands of the LORD. It will paralyses the works of Satan and prevent them from neutralizing you in any way.
Sadly, Satan knows that, hence raising scammers and stirring untaught and untrained preachers to desecrate maters of the covenant. This they do by asking people recklessly for money in the guise of bring them into a covenant. They will finish preaching and when they want to rob they say, “who is willing to enter into a covenant with God with this amount?” By so doing they desecrate God’s Holy thing.
Many have been scammed that way in the name of entering into a covenant with God. You see, the most expensive thing on earth is the oil fields in Nigeria or Saudi Arabia. The most expensive thing on earth is not the diamond fields of the world. The most expensive thing on earth is ignorance of the ways of GOD. You pay for it every day you sit under a scammer.
The covenant is a holy thing that Unholy Men and women have no business in. It is not a thing sinful and ignorant people are brought into. That is why it is a product of God’s glory. It is one of the most Holy things of God. The Bible says, God reveals it only to those who fear Him. Satan counterfeits it to desecrate it. That has been his way of handling the things of God – counterfeiting them.
Use this month and the rest of the year to establish your heart on Covenant keeping, especially if your prophetic destiny is heavy with weighty things God wants to do with it.
Now, when God is reinforcing you with a Covenant to be able to unleash your destiny (which depends on the weight of the things He wants to do with you), He will not just bring you into a covenant, He will give you a prophetic midwife. We can call them spiritual midwives.
Spiritual midwives are people we need to submit to and serve under to enter into our own territories – they are at a higher level in graces, truths, walk with God, and etc.
NOW LET ME EXPLAIN THIS.
There is being at a higher level of religious placement, which is just a matter of carrying a title and enjoying some ecclesiastical benefits, and there is being at a higher level in the things I just mentioned earlier. Both are not the same. For instance, one may be a high ranking Bishop in a Church system but has 0% of spiritual knowledge, Bible truths, grace or close walk with God.
In God’s plans, before a man or woman is considered high in rank in a Church system, he or she must have spent more years with the LORD like David and not like Saul. Ranking is not determining by Biological age or how long you have stayed in church.
It is determined by how long you have stayed with GOD in the secret place, knowing Him and seeing His glory, your weight and wits in the Spirit, and how long you have been with the Holy Spirit in the battle fields of His kingdom, executing divine will. A combination of all these will give you a fire, a wit and a faith people will need to become what God has called them to be. It will put one a thousand miles ahead of those God has called him to.
It is someone God who is a thousand miles ahead of you in the things or matters of the Kingdom that you need as a spiritual or prophetic midwife not just a titled person screaming what you want to here. There are so many people today teaching this or that, holding this online meeting and that online meeting, to attract attention and not to execute the divine will of God.
I have heard so many using the word revival on listeners without even knowing what revival is needed today. They do not even realize that it has even started long before now, and that the death of the wizard in Nigeria and what is now happening to his disciples around the world is a major phase of the revival.
IT IS ABOUT INSTALLATION THE TRUE GOD, JESUS CHRIST; AS KING IN ZION (HIS CHURCH).
It is about taking down the antichrist spirit and neutralizing the mystery of iniquity. A major highlight in our devotional text says;
He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.
The clearing of the atmosphere of God and removal of all black stars in His firmament is a major phase of the revival. The LORD said to me He will retire some of His servants soon; Saul will go for David to take position.
In fact, this revival started years ago, I saw it in a meeting I attended in Lagos Nigeria. Two men of God preached in that meeting. One from an island outside Africa, the other a Nigerian. I was there to witness it and glory to God I was there. That is why I can tell you how it looks and the signs it travels with. God has spoken to us about it in 1995 and I was seeing it that year. It was amazing.
We were released from that meeting to go with it and spread the fire wherever the LORD post us. It was a buildup of what the LORD had being doing with each and every one of us in our different enclaves long before that meeting.
How do you know someone who carries a revival fire? When the person speaks, they speak truths that you have never heard in your life. They pour mysteries that turns the Bible into a piece of cake for you. They set your heart on fire with amazing grace and truth, manifesting as the hidden wisdom ordained for our glory.
Whenever you meet such people, just sit under their ministry and become part of the move of God.
WHAT ARE WE SAYING THIS MORNING? THERE IS A MOVE OF GOD.
It began years ago. Some are only getting to know about it now. That is why they are saying it is going to start. It started many years ago. When true revival starts, especially in a spiritual season like ours, it begins with a cleansing storm and then grows into a revolution to stop falsehood.
It is not like the Pentecostal revivals of the 1930’s that you hear some talking about. That has fulfilled its purpose and will keep fulfilling its purpose. This one is an apostolic revival sparked years back. The purpose is to take the Church from the feast of Pentecost to the feast of Tabernacles.
True revival will take the Church from the feast of Pentecost to the feast of Tabernacle. It will not keep the Church in the feast of Pentecost. In bringing the Church to the feast of Pentecost, it will melt all things that stands on the way of truth, expose falsehood and raise standard bearers.
Again, this is not going to start, this started long ago. Something that has started should not be placed in sentences that suggest it will start. It’s deceptive to do so. That tells us, no one with an evangelistic content can spark the fire the true revival in your life.
People with Evangelistic content can only spark the fire of Pentecost not that of Tabernacle. And the fire of this Revival is the fire of Tabernacle not that of Pentecost, where people just speak in tongues or manifest the gifts of the spirit. The fire of Tabernacle makes people carriers of God’s glory. It makes them pillars of fire and moral landscape transformers. This is builds on and takes you beyond speaking in tongue and manifesting the gifts of the Spirit.
This month I want you to consider having a strong midwife in your life and putting your hands strongly on keeping covenant. If you do, a special promise of God in Isaiah 49 will begin you come to pass in your life. You will begin to see yourself moving from Pentecost to Tabernacle.
Friend, we are in very interesting times and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. It’s a new Day for you in Jesus precious name! AMEN!!
MAKE THIS SCRIPTURE AN ADDITIONAL MEDITATION FOR THE DAY;
“Your sons shall make haste; your destroyers and those who laid you waste shall go away from you. Lift up your eyes, look around and see; all these gather together and come to you.”
As I live,” says the Lord, “You shall surely clothe yourselves with them all as an ornament, and bind them on you as a bride does.
“For your waste and desolate places, and the land of your destruction, will even now be too small for the inhabitants; and those who swallowed you up will be far away” Isaiah 49:17-19 NKJV
