We are in the prophetic season when sons and daughters of God will be soaring high on the prophetic wings like eagle for unexplainable accomplishment.
God laid the foundation of the earth by prophetic declaration. He spoke and it became by the move of the Holy Spirit. – Genesis 1:2-3
When the Spirit of God moves upon you, the deposit of God’s word inside the spiritual well inside you will begin to flow. In John 7:38, Jesus says “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water”
We are in the days of overflowing of prophetic rivers to destroy season of dryness, shame, struggle and spiritual barrenness. The word ‘prophecy’ in Joel 2:28, in Hebrew means ‘naba’ –to push out, bubble. It is time to gush out the water of life, word of life of our belly and cause revival, restoration and renewal in every department of our lives and environment.
Why must you declare your new season?
What you dont declare, you cannot see. God declared, “Let there be light…” and He saw light. In Isaiah 42:9,He says” Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth, I tell you of them”
The word of God is like a bullet in a loaded gun, it remains impotent until you trigger the gun. Your mouth must trigger the revelatory word loaded in your heart by the Holy Spirit to effect any change.
The word if God in you remains a seed and it may die as a seed until you begin to declare it. It is in the declaration that you reap the fruit. Proverbs 18:20 says “A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth, and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled”
Devil is not afraid or intimidated by the volume of revelation you have, but the declaration of it. The only thing that can destabilize your enemy is, ‘it is written’. Matthew 4:4 –“But he answered and said, it is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God”
Triumphant faith is a spoken faith. Apostle Paul says “we believe and so we have spoken”. You add life to your faith by saying what you believe. Salvation is a product of confession. Romans 10:10 “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”. The Shunamite woman spoke her faith and her son lived
Your mountain becomes immovable until your mouth moves. Jesus in His word to the disciples in Mark 11:23 says “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the see; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith”
Your rod remains impotent until you activate it by a command. God told Moses in Exodus 7:2 “Thou shall speak all that I commanded thee, and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land”. Pharaoh will not cooperate with you until you give a command with your rod.
When your mouth is closed, your destiny will remain closed. It is time to open your mouth wide and God will fill it with word for your new season.
Darkness will continue to humiliate your destiny until you release light. The only thing that darkness fears is light (Declared word). “And the light shines in darkness, and darkness comprehended it not” John 1:5
The activities of your Angels are paralyzed without the prophetic declarations. They do not excel in strength only, but hearken only to commandments. Psalm 103:20 reads” Bless ye the Lord , all ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His word”
Prayer asks; Prophetic declare harvest. Too many Christians are praying, but very few are declaring what God’s says about them. “Calling forth
Beloved, if you fasted about child bearing, begin to declare the arrival of the babies, hasting their coming by calling them forth. ‘I am a mother of twins’, mention their names. ‘I call you forth in Jesus name’. It time for you to come and fulfill destiny
KNOWING YOUR APPOINTED SEASON
The appointed season of your life is a particular period when particular activity happens in your. Every thing that God created has appointed times and seasons.
Knowing your new season is such an important matter to handle seriously because your purposed is attached to it.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 says “To every thing there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven”
What you need to know.
God has programmed your purpose into a season. There are season that certain fruits cannot thrive like dry, wet or raining season
You have a part to play in entering your new season. Jesus fasted and prayed for forty days and forty nights to key into the season of His manifestation in ministry. Luke 4:17 says “Elisha positioned himself to enter into his season of breakthrough in ministry. He caught the mantle of Elijah, for a double portion anointing.
The season of a man’s life can be manipulated by the power of darkness or foundational strongholds, strongman or curses. For years the battle from my foundations blinded my mind and stood against me until I lamented against it.
You can miss the appointed season by covetousness, slothfulness, pleasure, sin, ungodly relationship, wrong marriage, haste etc. In II Kings 5:25-27, we have the record of Gehazi, who was at the edge of a new season in ministry when the double portion of Elijah’s anointing plus Elisha’s anointing was to be transferred, but the trap of covetousness and haste cut up with him. Instead of anointing, he got leprosy. So watch it. Hebrews 13:5 says, “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content…”
Your new season may be tied to a new location and a new assignment. Many times when God wants to elevate you, or move you into a strategic season of your life, He may relocate you. Your total obedience opened the door to a new season of power, exploit, provision, favor and lifting in my life, family and ministry. When David moved from Hebron to Ziklag, a new season opened up in his life.
Your new season may demand a rebranding. You are unique and you will only be known for one thing. But when God gave me the key and opened the door into apostolic work ‘Discovering and discipline women into ministry and work of intercession’ heaven let loose in my favor.
Your new season may be unduly prolonged. The Israelites walked in a circle for 40 years in the wilderness instead of 40 days. Some of the reasons why seasons of manifestation may be prolonged are: fear, unbelief, wrong mindset, rebellion, disobedience and lack of vision. “Every time you disobey God’s instruction, it closes the door to the next season of lifting”. God has stopped speaking to you because you have not obeyed the last order.
There is a season of planting and that of harvesting. In Genesis 8:22 “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease”. When you miss the season of planting in your business and ministry, you may never witness the season of harvest. Provs.10:4-5 says “He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent makes rich .vs 5,he that gathereth in the summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame”.
The new appointed season of laughter may be aborted or truncated. I remembered vividly a nice sister who lost her husband years ago. The case was a pathetic one, because he had looked for job for many years and finally got a fantastic one, but never lived to enjoy the new season, because he died a day to resumption in the office. You must pray against aborters of new favorable season.
A new season in your life means so many things
–A new beginning
–A new turning point
–A turn around
–A new chapter
–A dawn of a new day e.t.c.
The season of your life may be influenced positively or negatively by natural season through the manipulation of the sun, moon and stars by the powers of darkness –Divination, enchanting, chanting, projections vocations. In Genesis 1:14-18, God created the greater lights and the lesser lights to rule over the day and the night. This talks about” CONTROL OR INFLUENCE”
There will always be a night season. David says in Psalm 30:5 “…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning”. –The night season is the darkest hour of a man’s life, when it seems Jehovah has forsaken you.
Jesus Christ our Lord and savior through his darkest hour, before He saw the morning of glory.
In John 21. The apostles went through their own experiences. Peter, Paul and Silas were imprisoned.
-It is the season of greatest warfare in your life, when it seems hell has let loose its entire host against you. But there is a consolation in Isaiah 40:1-2 “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished…” Few months before we heard God and moved, my children faced death, one after the other, but mercy prevailed.
-It is that season that usually precedes the season of major breakthrough of your life. A season that you may begin to grow weary and faint except the Hurs and Aaron lift up your hands.
-It is a time to wrestle with your God. Do not be dismayed, your night season is that period you need to be alone with God. Jacob understood this mystery and he entered into his new season of glory by wrestling with God all night.
In Gen. 32
Vs. 24-He was alone.
Vs. 24b-He encountered God.
Vs. 24c-He came to the breaking of the day.
Vs. 25-He was broken.
Vs. 28-His name was changed.
Vs. 29c-He was blessed.
Vs. 30- His life was preserved.
Vs. 31- His sun rose.
Every thing is working together for your season. Do not be afraid. Few months before the relocation into season took place, our landlord in the church rose up in battle and at the same time heaven stirred the heart of our landlord at the residential place to drive us out in haste. We prayed all manners of prayers, but we later knew the hand that was troubling our water.
Joseph may never enter into that season of fulfillment of prophecy and dream if the brethren had not ganged up to sell him
Every new season require new and right people. When God moved us, He changed the people around us. All the people that crossed over with, left one after the other, then God raised new people pillars for the work.
When David moved to Ziglag the people around him changed
Every new season requires a new wine skin. God may be delaying that new season of promotion because of the old wine skin in your life. Luke 5:36-39 God cannot bless you to kill you. If your character cannot carry the new season of power, it may burst you open.
New salt demands new cruise to experience any healing. New season demands new garment. Joseph changed his garment three times before he moved into the new season.
A. The garment from his father’s house (Evil inheritance).
B. The garment of Potiphar’s house (Garment of slavery and defilement
– inherited from where you had lived or worked).
C. Prison garment
God has the power to change time and season. In Daniel 2:24“
–He has been from everlasting to everlasting so he knows the beginning of your beginning.ps.90:2 says” Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou, hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God”
-He created season and can command them to favor you. Rev.4:11 says” thou art worthy o Lord to receive glory, honor and power, for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure, they are and were created”
-Our God has the power to make the sun of a man to rise or set or remain still like the days of Joshua. Malachi 1:11 says” for from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same, my name shall be great among the Gentile, and in every place, incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the Lord of hosts” In gen. 32:31,the sun rose upon Jacob.
He has the creative power to change what is deficient to fix you unto your new season.
He can give you the womb of a virgin like he did for sarah to carry your Isaac(laughter)
He can change your spiritual goggle to bring you into a new season of prophetic visions.
In psalm 103:1,5 it reads ”Bless the Lord o my soul and all that is within me, bless his holy name.(vs5)who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s” God can make you ten years younger than your age so that you will enjoy the new season of prosperity.
God often bring people into their new season through the instrument of the prophet.
Hosea 12:10 reads ”I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions and used similitude , by the ministry of the prophets”
You need someone higher than you who will not only speak into your life but can challenge you into your new ordained season”a good father(mentor) gives you feather to fly high” ask God to connect you this year to your coach for grater achievement.
Every new season is a product of new revelation.
When Jesus discovered Isaiah 61:1-3; a new chapter was opened in his life and call. luke 4:17-18
SOME STATEGIC KEYS TO YOUR NEW SEASON
In 2 kings 7; holyspirit taught me some lessons which I will share here:
Discovery- what you do not discover, you cannot enjoy. You need to discover the direction God is moving in your life, business and ministry or else you will stay behind the cloud.
You must know when to leave the dried brook into Zarephath and stop praying for water to come out. Seek for divine direction.
You need to discern who is behind the challenge. Is it God? Is it the adversary allowed by God or satanic attack?
The four lepers discovered the denger of remaining on that spot. You must withdraw to the closet of prayer for this to become possible.
Decision-Revelation without concrete decision will end up as mere information. The four lepers decided to do something about their present situation to open up a new chapter of their destinies. I and my family decided to take risk and obeyed God.
Determination- make up your mind to do whatever God is saying, so to wherever He is taking you knowing fully that He alone knows your end from the beginning and controls the season.
Do not give in to the scoffers. be deaf and dumb to their words of discouragement and fear injectors.
The four lepers made up their minds to go forward.
The Israelites faced the red sea before it parted.
Abraham offered Isaac before the promise fully came.
Your diligence in the present season will determine how soon God will promote you. Do not expect to be promoted when you have not passed the required exams.
Endure hardness, sleepless nights and many more. Very soon, the season of harvest is coming, Elizabeth and zechariah were diligent in service when the answer came: a season of impossibility and fruitfulness.
You need to be disciplined in your present level, before God can trust you with any new season of lifting, especially financial breakthrough.
Drive your decision into prayer-
Good decision without dynamic prayer will remain lame. Give legs to your decision with effective and violent prayers, soon it will begin to run. That is why you must pray these 8 days prophetic prayer with all your heart until you see the new season emerge.
Jesus travailed in the Gethsemane garden. The apostles prayed for ten days, and heaven was rend opened. Your destiny is in your hand; you can cage it or release it.
Welcome to your appointed season of celebration
