New Dawn greetings in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
I believe we are still in our season of harvest of answers to our intercessions and supplications during the annual prayer and fasting of January; and I believe that the impact of our various encounters during this season will be a point of reference for a long time to come. Amen.
But what is the Holy Ghost saying for the month of February?
From scriptures, we understand that obedience of faith is gateway to a world of noiseless breakthroughs – Deut. 28:1-13
We may not have ‘prayed’ for some great happenings in our lives, but we definitely must have ‘obeyed’ our way into them – Jn 2:5-11/ Job. 36:11
Obedience of Faith will always commit God’s integrity to perform – Ex 14:14-15/ Ex 16:35/ Isa. 48:21
For example, we have never had to pray for money in this Commission, but we have obeyed our way into realms of financial fortune – Deut. 8:18/ Luk. 8:1-3
Naaman did not have to pray to be cleansed, he simply obeyed the prophetic instruction for his cleansing – 2 kg 5:1/9-14.
The hosts of the wedding at Cana of Galilee simply obeyed the Master to have their desire met – John 2:5-10.
The man that was born blind, received his sight by simply obeying the instructions of Christ – Jn 9:1-8.
It is obvious that, God responds to our obedience of Faith, faster than He does to our Prayers!
Our obedience will always trigger instant interventions, as in the following examples:
- Abraham secured a sworn-blessing at the instance of his obedience – Gen 22:16-18
- Israel crossed the Red sea into a world of heaven on earth by obedience – Exo. 14:14-15/ 114:1-9/ Exo. 16:35/ Deut. 8:4
- The widow of Zarephath enjoyed supernatural supplies through her obedience – 1 Kgs 17:8-15
- The Prophet’s widow paid all her debts through obedience – 2 Kgs 4:1-10
- The triumph of Judah over her enemies came through obedience – 2 Chr. 20:17-24
From the examples above, it is clear that every act of obedience of faith triggers instant intervention.
Therefore, it is not the revelations we receive that count, but what we do with them – Jam. 1:22-25
Receiving, believing and obeying the instructions of the Word is what makes it work – Mat. 7:24-25/ Jam. 2:18
As we all know, obedience is better than sacrifice, which includes the sacrifice of labour in the Word, prayer and fasting and many others, because no spiritual force can break scriptures – 1 Sam. 15:23/ Jn 10:35/ Psa. 89:34
Obedience may be costly, but the end result is priceless – Deut. 28:1/ Phi. 2:5-11
We saw timely and delightsome obedience as the stronghold of Abraham’s faith, which changed his name from Abram to Abraham and turned him to a trans-generational blessing – Gen. 12:1-4/ Gen. 22:1-18/ Gal. 3:13-14/ Jn 8:39
May every Winner be endued afresh with the Spirit of obedience this year, as God launches us into the first phase of our New Dawn era this quarter – Ezk. 36:27
Therefore, the prophetic focus for the month of February 2018 is:
OBEDIENCE: GATEWAY TO REALMS OF NOISELESS BREAKTHROUGH – Deut. 28:1-13
Recommended books of the month authored by me include:
*Turnaround Power of the Word *Following the path of the Eagle *The Force of Freedom
* Walking in Dominion * Satan Get Lost *Born to Win
*All you need to have all your needs met *Fulfilling your Days
Remain ever blessed.
Jesus is Lord!
