Foundations: God Bearers

Over the course of history Jewish leaders (priests, prophets, rabbis) have seen Scriptures as their foundation and most valuable asset. For instance, the study of the text was the only reason for a man to forego marriage once he has reached the age of responsibility.
With this in mind, we can understand the continuos reference of words like: “and God said…” in the creation story in Genesis, the power of the God’s word bringing to an abrupt halt the construction of the Tower of Babel, the admonition in Deuteronomy 8: “man shall not leave by bread alone, but by God’s decree”, etc. This cross cutting theme is also reflected in different guises in every book in the Old and New Testament. 
So, dear friends if words are powerful, then Divine Words are super powerful. Destinies can be shaped by right teaching, and derailed by misguided or short sighted teaching, more or less what Jesus termed “old wine, in new wine skin”
This Sunday I will make the connection between God and the bearers of his Word. It is important to note that since God spoke through people, to be an oracle of God was the most noble of vocation. As such Priests, Prophets, and much later Rabbis were held in very high esteem, as they laid and sustained the foundations on which all that lasts are nurtured and established.
The destiny of the people and the nation at large rested on the shoulders of these people, therefore in return, their welfare was the responsibility of the people.
Join us as we set foundations for 2017
We march in the light of Nahum’s assertions: 
(For the Lord is restoring the majesty of Jacob, as well as the majesty of Israel, though ravagers have ravaged them and ruined their branches.) – Nahum 2:2

*Prophecy for this season*

According to dictionaries, Etiology is defined as the investigation or attribution of the cause or reason for something, often expressed in terms of historical or mythical explanation.

So, in a bid to find explanation or meanings to life’s mysteries, men of old came up with stories. Over time these stories were interpreted and reinterpreted in line with the prevailing ideas of times and seasons.
For example, we have the biblical story of The Tower of Babel (Gen. 11:9). This mythical story comes alive again as we see institutions crumble. As we witness perhaps the start of a new Cold War, US stand (rightly so by the way) against Israeli occupation, and nations retreat to nationalistic values and agenda.
Any leader worth their salt would know and understand the dynamics of seasons and patterns. In other words, as we see in the natural, so it is in the realm of the spirits. 
Therefore, I declare that we are in a season of Outliers. In relation to the Church, the days of the mega church is over, not necessarily because of any ills – but with proliferation of technology and change in habits, that season is drawing to a close. 
Dear Friends, I hear the warning the lord gave to Nineveh through Prophet Nahum (2:1), and the consolation he returned to Israel (2:2) for her years in exile, affliction and shame. 
These Outliers will lead units through home groups, church halls, seasonal meetings, social media; until the season of ingathering. I see leaders of leaders, I see leaders of followers – glory hallelujah!

Our God is sovereign!

Not just in principle, but also in practice.
And that we have been endowed with Free Will, a gift that can either add value to our lives and humanity at large, or diminish it. 

Last week, I examined Prov. 11:14 & 15:22; using 1 Kings 22:1-40 as our Case Study. During the course of my talk, I stressed the importance of quality advice and guidance in fulfilling our purpose.

So, today I’ll be building on that foundation, this time with a closer look into the life of Micaiah, someone I see as an outlier. As with most of the prophets of old, I believe that those at fringes of their calling are about to be rewarded for their values, faithfulness, and vision.

So, we continue in the strength of our theme for 2016: Our Year of Plenty (Gen 41:46-49), as we plant seeds of prayers, prophetic declaration, and thanksgiving for 2017 (Our Year of Restoration).

We march in the light of Nahum’s assertions: 
(For the Lord is restoring the majesty of Jacob, as well as the majesty of Israel, though ravagers have ravaged them and ruined their branches.) – Nahum 2:2

Prophetic Blessings

Good Morning Dear Friends,

I hear the Lord say that from November and into coming months, like David, we will begin to ‘punch above our weights’. 
In other words, our position and future destiny is not dependent on our ‘weight’ (our current situation), but in the sovereign hands of God, whom we have chosen to be our refuge and fortress. 
Welcome to your season of blessing!

Today we will press on to types of evil, and how we can educate and empower our minds for better choices. 
As well as practical tips, I will be examining case studies from Scriptures with a view to demonstrate some of the impacts of good and bad choices.
