“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, my great army which I sent among you. You will have plenty to eat, until you are full and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you ;and never again will my people be ashamed.Then you will know that l am the Lord your God, and that there is no other, never again will my people be ashamed. “Joel 2:25-27.

There will be a breaking forth on all levels. It is time for remembrance and harvest.It’s a year that I have decided that goodness and mercy will locate you, I will revisit your life and my church, that is why it is a year of unusual harvest, breakthrough,season to remember. Season to go through files and remember and rewards. Year of restoration. The year will not follow the usual pattern , new  ways of doing things and dealing with my people.

I will rule and reign in the midst of my people.  I want to show people that I am God, I caused the sun to stand still, I have parted the Red Sea, I have caused a virgin to give birth, I have caused earthquakes and prison doors to open on their own accord, I have raised the dead, made the blind see, enemies of my children to hear strange voices, I will do a lot in the year 2017.

In the new year,  it is what I allowed that will come to pass.Rejoice and be glad for those on the side of God.Trembling and dread for those on the other side.

The Lord hath spoken and it shall come to pass in your life, family  and the ministry in Jesus Name( 1 Chronicles 17:23-44; 2 Samuel 7:25-26). What we need to do, is to prepare ourselves spiritually and  mentally.  Being relevant in life is at a cost and be ready to pay the price . ( 2 Chronicles 27:6; Proverbs 23;7).

The primary thing is to love the Lord with all your heart and walk in love ( Deuteronomy 6:5; Luke 10:25-37).Seek the face of the Lord continually along the journey for divine guidance and direction ( Jeremiah 29:13; 1 Chronicles 16:11; Deuteronomy 4:29; Hebrew 10:12;Psalm 14:2; Proverbs 8:17); walk  the talk, because the sceptre of righteousness ,is the Sceptre of His kingdom (Hebrew 1:8; Psalm 45:6; 1 John 1:5-7).

Agree to study the Scriptures steadily, constantly, and frequently, as to grow in the knowledge of the Lord ( Colossians 3:16; 2 Timothy 2:15; Luke 10:42).

You are the light of the world ( Matthew 5:14). The Lord is counting on you to make Him known unto others, we are labourers together  with God ( 1 Corinthians 3:9). You are saved to serve . Be ready to preach in season and out of season ( 2 Timothy 4:2).

Every New Year comes a desire for something new—in our marriage, in our business/career, in our academics, in our health etc. It is in the light of this that I specially welcome you to a great year—Year of Uncommon Harvest.

It is the year your desired change can and will happen in Jesus name.

The truth is, God is concerned about you, much more than you know, and wants your total prosperity in 2017.

As the Bible states in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

This year, there will be such an awesome manifestation of His power and glory in and through us that the world will marvel in Jesus Name. Therefore, it is time for you to…..Arise, shine; for your light indeed has come! The glory of the Lord is risen upon you…. Psalm 60:1-3

This year,  your testimonies will astound the world and attract many to the Lord your God……..HAPPY NEW YEAR !

God Bless you .
