Lift Up Your Heads - June 2014 Edition
Glad to be back in Jesus Name!
"Your month of Overwhelming Blessings"
Beloved, you are reading this because you are blessed and God thinks highly of you. Notwithstanding what you are feeling on going through, and whatever the people around you choose to label or describe you as - I have come by the spirit of the Lord to announce to you that God, Jehovah Elohim thinks highly about you. Jer 29:11.
In Numbers 22:1-7, there is a profound story of God's people as they journey through on their way to the promised land. May I quickly prophesy over you that your journey through June 2014 shall be full of testimonies and good success in Jesus Name.
In verse 1 of the above scripture, the bible says 'the children of Israel moved (forward) and camped in the plains of Moab on this side of Jericho by Jordan' . I have come to announce to you this morning...it is your time to move forward. You have camped too long on the same spot...arise and move upward. Duet 2:2-3. Because Israel moved forward, it means at least four things for you:
1. Heaven has decreed it - it's your time to move forward this month.
2. The host of Heaven has been released to empower you to move forward.
3. The yokes and barriers to progression and speed has been cut loosed
4. The power of stagnation has been destroyed.
Beloved, once has God spoken, twice have I heard - it's your time to progress. The forces of stagnation and retardation are broken in Jesus Name. Let's somebody shout it and speak forth - I am unstoppable in Jesus Name, Selah!!!
In verses 2 - 4, The Lord then exposed to us the activities at the gates. Remember the gates represents the operation of the power of darkness and spiritual wickedness in the high places. The Lord revealed to us the agenda of the King of Moab - a type of the gates spoken about in Psalm 24:7.... Lift up your heads, on ye gates.....that the King of Glory may come in.
To lift up means to raise, elevate, open up, make way, remove the obstacle... This month, the Lord has issued a command unto the powers at the gates of the month of June on your behalf - shift!!! I command an atmospheric shift over you. Every evil cloud over you shift. I speak to negative mindset - shift in Jesus Name, Amen.
Back to Balak,
The King of Moab did four things:
a. He considered the report of Israel's exploits of the past.
b. The picture he saw produced fear and dread
c. He projected, estimated and fast forward to their new levels of victory
d. And he concluded the people must be stopped before they overran him and his people.
1. You are bigger than what or who you think you are. I don't care what your bosses have been saying about your ability - you have an unction from the holy one and you can do all things. All that is required is to draw grace from above.
2. Begin to see yourself in the eyes of faith and stop evaluating yourself by the intimidating words and actions of the Balaks and Goliaths around you.
3. Where you are is not your ultimate, see new levels, profess new levels, act new levels and attain new levels in Jesus Name.
True to the operations of the gates, in verses 4 - 6, Balak acted swiftly to frustrate the coming glory and victory of Israel. He hired Balaam (a sorcerer, a white witch) to curse Israel - the people of God. Don't be surprise of the activities at the gates. God revealed to us in Job the operations of the devil - goeth to and from the surface of the earth, seeking whom to destroy or pull down. Beloved, be rest assured, Proverbs 11:21 says - though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished. All form of wickedness proposed against you in the month of June are judged now in Jesus name. None will see the light of day because the Lord is your shield and guide. You are safe and secure from troubles.
However, Balaam declared he could only speak only what God told him and in the end blessed Israel 3 times (Num 24:10)
I prophesy, in Jesus Name, hands join in hands, every evil alliance over your life this month shall fail.
Evil alliance over your destiny, will summersault and be destroyed
Evil alliance over your marriage, be frustrated
Evil agenda over your children are broken
Evil agenda over your fruitfulness consumed by fire
Evil agenda over your marital bliss will not manifest
Evil agenda over your peace are destroyed.
Evil alliances over Nigeria shall be consumed by fire.
Evil alliance over our Chibok girls shall fail.
Let's wrap up with insights from the response of Balaam to Balak.
He declared unto Balak in Numbers 23:19, 20
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.
I will like you to ponder and read these 2 verses over and over again.....
Beloved, can you see who you are in Christ?
Can you hear the white witch's declaration to Balak?
No white or red witch, sorcerer, evil forces, demons or star gazers can touch you this month in Jesus Name. Balak earlier testified about the potency of Balaam's sorcerer by saying whosever you bless is blessed and whoever you curse is cursed but over Israel, Balaam was powerless.
I have come to declare to you no Balaam can curse you.
You are blessed.
You cannot be cursed.
God has commanded blessings.
I deliberately tagged this message "your month of Overwhelming blessings therefore because I heard it in my spirit that you are blessed and no one can curse you.
No one can curse your children
No weapon that is fashioned against you shall prosper
You hands are blessed
Your marriage blessed
Your business blessed
Your work with God blessed
Your thoughts are blessed
Your services are blessed
Your going out blessed; your coming in blessed; your laying down blessed; your waking up blessed; in all your endeavors this month - you are blessed.
Dear reader, I implore you, every day of this month - operate from your position of blessings because whoever God has blessed is blessed, He cannot be cursed.
In conclusion, if God be for us, who can be against us? Rom 8:31. May I submit to you that the only one who can stop you this month is YOU. Consider your ways, wherever you need to make amendments, please do. If you are reading this and have not invited Jesus into your life as Lord and Saviour, please pray this prayer with me...
Lord Jesus, I submit & surrender my life to you, come into my life, save me & forgive me all my sins. Wash me clean with your blood. Please write my name in the book of life. Amen in Jesus Name.
Finally, please boldly make this prophetic declaration:
This month, I am sober but very vigilant against the adversary walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: I resist the adversary stedfastly in faith and I possess my absolute victory, Oh God of all grace, I thank you for all I have been through up to May 2014, now arise, please make me perfect, stablish me strengthen & settle me, my household, the church of God and Nigeria in Jesus Name. Amen.
I trust you have been blessed and your blessings shall be overwhelming this month in Jesus Name, Amen.
Shalom & Mega Blessings,
