Lift Up Your Heads, August 2014 Edition

In times like these......!!!
Psalms‬ ‭90‬:‭13-17‬ KJV
Return, O Lord, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants. O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil. Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children. And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
The last 2 weeks of so have been a period of wailing, sorrow and pain in several homes, communities and across the world.
While MH 317 has still not been found - families yet to come to terms ..
MH17 - was shot down in a split second....
Several plane crashes across the world
BH havocs across the NW area on Nigeria
Israel & Hamas - wanton destructions of lives and properties in the M/East
Mudslide in Indian, near Mombai......
Ebola in 3 W/African nations and the threat of 1 recorded dead in Nigeria.
Economies across the world failings - the latest been Argentina....

Beloved, it's like Hell is enraged & enlarged.....
Isa 5:14a...Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: .....(‭KJV)

Matt 24:22, Mark 13:20 ....And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. (‭KJV)

The situation right now across the world can be described as fearful, gruesome, full of anxiety, uncertainties and the world waits in bated breathe for the next scary and bad news.....

The truth is, in times like these, we need a Saviour; Yes we need the Holy Spirit. It is on this note that I welcome you to "Your month of the Holy Spirit"

John‬ ‭14‬:‭16-17
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. (‭‬KJV)

Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

John‬ ‭16‬:‭7, 13‬
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: ......vs 13 says...for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. (KJV)

So, what is the message of the Holy Spirit to you, in times like these?
The Lord said I should tell you, this is your month of New Beginnings. How I am sure of this? The number 8 signifies new beginnings. There are implications for this message;

It means God will do a New thing.
God will open new doors
God will order new things
God will speak or command new opportunities
God will tale you to new levels.
God will establish new things concerning you.

It further implies an end to some old things.
I see an end to old covenants!
An end to old order and evil counsels.
A termination of every evil agenda and purpose!
An end and crushing defeats to demons on assignment over your matter.
An end to whatever the Lord has not ordained concerning you.
Isa 43:17-19....

Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not? (‭Lamentations‬ ‭3‬:‭37‬ KJV)

Shall we pray?

PP 1 - Father Lord, have mercy, return oh Lord and have mercy upon us!
Psalm 130:3 says - If the Lord will count or measure iniquities, who can stand?

PP 2 - Father Lord, do not deal with us accordingly to our shortcomings. Let your mercy prevails against judgement. James 2:13
Beloved, darkness and evil prevails when the light and the righteous do nothing.

PP 3 - Father Lord, enough is enough of darkness, evil wind and sorrow blowing across the nations and our land, let there be light oh Lord.
Specifically, 1 John 3:8, the son of God was made manifest....

PP 4: Oh Lord, manifest Jesus in my situation, manifest Jesus in our land, destroy the works of the evil ones in Jesus Name.
Isa 5:14 says Hell is other words, the evil gates are enraged and sworn to destroy. Shall we let them continue these wanton destructions?

PP 5: In Jesus Name, I command and declare, oh ye gates, lift up your Heads, evil powers and demons on assignment, be arrested! I come against you in the Name of the Lord, be roasted by the Lord's consuming fire.
The Comforter is here the Holy Spirit is here for a purpose.

PP 6: Song....Come Holy Spirit, we need you......Holy Spirit, please come into my situation. Brood over my life, brood over Nigeria, brood over our communities and let there be peace, joy and light, Amen.
Psalm 90:15...Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.

PP 7: Father Lord, enough is enough, please turn the evil tide. Make us glad, enlarge and multiple our joy and peace in the season of the comforter.

PP 8 Psalm 90:17....And let the beauty, honour, favour of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it. This month oh Lord, establish me oh Lord in Jesus Name, Amen.

Beloved, as you go into this new month. This is God's pronouncement concerning you.....Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou? (‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭8‬:‭4‬ KJV). This month, no power will be able to question or bring to disrepute the power of our God upon you.

Go and experience multiple new beginnings and testify in Jesus Name, Amen.
