Happy first day of the month!
Happy 150th anniversary to DaFruits, which was birthed in the blessed month of December.
Thank You God for faithfully seeing me through, for constantly revealing and speaking, and for Your grace.
I pray today for sensitivity in the Spirit, for divine revelations, and for God’s grace and mercy.
“And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and followed the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who had made Israel sin. He did not depart from them.”
II Kings 13:2
To be fair few kings walked in the ways of The Lord in those days, even few walked wholeheartedly in the ways of The Lord.
Sadly, it is no different from today.
Only few are walking in righteousness.
In a time whereby we are living under God’s grace, Christians must have a heart of repentance.
“Then the anger of the LORD was aroused against Israel, and He delivered them into the hand of Hazael king of Syria, and into the hand of Ben-Hadad the son of Hazael, all their days.”
II Kings 13:3
“So Jehoahaz pleaded with the LORD, and the LORD listened to him; for He saw the oppression of Israel, because the king of Syria oppressed them.”
II Kings 13:4
If we continue to walk in sin, then we will only end up delivering ourselves into the hands of satan.
It’s not worth it.
So Jehoahaz humbled himself and pleaded with the Lord, and the Lord had mercy upon him and his people.
“And Hazael king of Syria oppressed Israel all the days of Jehoahaz.”
II Kings 13:22
“But the LORD was gracious to them, had compassion on them, and regarded them, because of His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not yet destroy them or cast them from His presence.”
II Kings 13:23
Children of God it really is only by His grace.
Pray that He never takes His presence away from you.
His presence is literally heaven to me.
It’s by dwelling in His presence that I receive revelations from His Word, His presence is powerful.
Let’s also remember to intercede for the nations.
Why is there still war between Syria and Israel?
The answer is in this scripture.
I want us to understand that The Word of God is prophetic.
“And Elisha said to him, “Take a bow and some arrows.” So he took himself a bow and some arrows.”
II Kings 13:15
“Then he said to the king of Israel, “Put your hand on the bow.”
II Kings 13:16
“And he said, “Open the east window”; and he opened it. Then Elisha said, “Shoot”; and he shot.
And he said, “The arrow of the LORD’s deliverance and the arrow of deliverance from Syria; for you must strike the Syrians at Aphek till you have destroyed them. ””
II Kings 13:17
“Then he said, “Take the arrows”; so he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, “Strike the ground”; so he struck three times, and stopped.”
II Kings 13:18
“And the man of God was angry with him, and said, “You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck Syria till you had destroyed it! But now you will strike Syria only three times.””
II Kings 13:19
I wonder why the man struck the ground only three times, and stopped.
Perhaps he grew weary of striking the ground, or maybe he had no understanding of why he had to strike the ground, and therefore he might have believed that it was pointless to continue doing so.
I pray that we will be quick and not slow in our discernment in Jesus Name.
I pray that we will be in tune with the holy Spirit in Jesus Name.
There are some things that The Lord has commanded us to do that if we do not respond quickly, there may be dire consequences.
May we be quick in Spirit to respond to the call of The Lord.
It is true you know that there are some things concerning the will of God that if we do not respond immediately to, we will miss it.
I pray that we will never miss that which The Lord wills for us.
In these last days it is important that we are sensitive in spirit.
That is why it is important to heed to the Word of God, His presence is a dwelling place He shields us against the wiles of the enemy.
“But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.”
“When you are in distress, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the LORD your God and obey His voice”
“(for the LORD your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.”
“The LORD is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy.”
“He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them.”
“The LORD preserves all who love Him, But all the wicked He will destroy.”
I pray that we shall be quick to respond to the call of The Lord, and that we shall be sensitive in Spirit to acknowledge Him always.
If we are quick to respond to the call of The Lord we will never miss our blessing.
His grace is sufficient enough.
“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
II Chronicles 7:14
Everyone needs compassion a love that’s never failing,Let mercy fall on me.
Everyone needs forgiveness, the kindness of a Savior.The hope of nations.❤🙏️
Jesus is the hope of nations, that is why He is the King of kings.
Jesus promises and He never fails, every king before King Jesus failed,
and that is why He is our Savior, our Lord and King, our Redeemer.
Savior,He can move the mountains.My God is mighty to save.He is Mighty to Save.
Forever, Author of salvation.He rose and conquered the grave,JESUS conquered the grave!🔥🙌
There’s one thing I pray is that I will not provoke the Lord to anger from being disobedient, but that I will hear Him, and respond to please Him.
Dream, Visions, Revelations, Signs, and Warnings.
Since we are also soon approaching Christmas the Lord also reminded me that another important way we can be in tune with Him is through dreams, visions, and revelations.
God really does reveal to redeem, but the way we respond reveals how in tune we are with His Word.
“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.”
“Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly.”
“But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.”
Joseph did not understand the situation, he had his own assumptions and perceptions, but with God we have total and undiluted Truth, Truth that surpasses human reasoning, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.
This would not make sense to anyone, even to Mary herself it would not make sense, but God needed to reassure Joseph and therefore, He reassured His Truth to Joseph through a divine revelation.
“Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife,”
Joseph first of all knew that this dream was from God, and after he had this dream he responded promptly to the Word of God through obedience.
Joseph did not question, and neither did he doubt, he did not go to seek counsel from the high priest, and neither did he confide in his family or friends.
Joseph simply obeyed God, he knew the voice of God, he had a discerning spirit, he listened to God, and he heeded to The Word of God.
God reassured Joseph with His Word.
He revealed what He had already declared in scripture, and we know that forever The Word of God is settled!
“So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying:”
““Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.””
We know the rest of the story how Mary and Joseph faced some challenges along the way in the pursuit for Mary to conceive safely, but for the simple fact that they had the full backing of God now weapon fashioned or formed against them could ever prosper i.e. Herod, the plans of satan could not work.
Mary and Joseph’s journey with the Lord was successful, He never left them, He saw them through.
“and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name JESUS.”
Brethren The Word of God is faithful and true.
Learn to protect your destiny with silence.
There are some things that should just be left between you and God.
It is not everyone that should know what God has said concerning your life, and most certainly it is not everyone that should know your dreams!
Learn to be quiet and listen to God when He speaks to you, no matter how crazy it may sound once you know that you know that you know that God has said it then just believe it, and do not procrastinate it.
Imagine if Joseph doubted God.
Brethren for all the years that I have walked with God, most of the time He says things to me that I honestly do not want to hear for the simple fact that it sounds crazy to me, and I try to sort of convince my way out of what He has said but it never works.
Things will only start to work for us when we learn to trust Him enough to yield to His will, and that takes a lot of discerning, obeying, and responding.
“Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem,”
“saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.””
How did these wise men know that the star in the East was the sign of the soon and coming King?
That does not just come from earthly knowledge, but by divine knowledge.
These three wise men must have been in tune with God, despite all their earthly knowledge, and perhaps knowledge of astrology, they did not disregard the wisdom that matters most, wisdom that comes from God alone, and can only be found in His Living Word, Jesus Christ in which they had sought out to find.
“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.”
“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
“When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.”
“And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.”
“So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:”
“‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.’ ””
“Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, determined from them what time the star appeared.”
“And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the young Child, and when you have found Him, bring back word to me, that I may come and worship Him also.””
Herod did not have a divine revelation of who Jesus Christ was, he inquired of the people but He did not seek God, rather Herod had his own evil desires against the birth of Jesus, and God knew this.
The enemy is a liar, and a deceiver.
God is Truth, and He can never lie to you nor deceive you.
“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
“When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was.”
“When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.”
“And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”
JESUS was wealthy from birth!
“Then, being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way.”
“Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.””
“When he arose, he took the young Child and His mother by night and departed for Egypt,”
“and was there until the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, “Out of Egypt I called My Son.””
These three wise men were divinely warned in a dream, and when they were they did not doubt what God had said they simply obeyed God and went another way, and yet again God was with them.
You know the most interesting thing about Mary, the three wise men, and Joseph was that they all feared God which means they reverenced, acknowledged, obeyed, and respected God.
They did not fear man, they did not fear what man would do to them, and neither did they worry about what others would think about them.
For them they knew who God was, and they simply obeyed.
Be rest assured that what ever plan the enemy has against you God will most definitely reveal it to you!
God spoke to Joseph in dreams many times, and every time God spoke to Joseph, Joseph responded through obedience.
He was quick and did not delay, whenever God spoke he moved.
“Now when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,”
“saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, and go to the land of Israel, for those who sought the young Child’s life are dead.””
“Then he arose, took the young Child and His mother, and came into the land of Israel.”
God will divert and destroy your enemy’s, and whilst doing so He shall surely pave the way for you!
The enemy may have thought that he had his way with you, but he forgot that it is not over until God says so, God is not through with you.
Just trust Him, He will never lead you wrong, He will always lead you right.
Even if you are afraid still trust God, for the simple fact that if He has done it before then most assuredly He will certainly do it again.
“But when he heard that Archelaus was reigning over Judea instead of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there. And being warned by God in a dream, he turned aside into the region of Galilee.”
“And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, “He shall be called a Nazarene.””
When we are in tune with God then we will realize that everything He does is for a reason.
Every time Mary, Joseph, and the wise men obeyed God a prophetic act was revealed according to scripture.
You see these strange things that the Lord requires of us, that He speaks to us to do it is all for a purpose to fulfill that which He has promised us according to His Word, but brethren it all depends on your response to His call.
Do not delay His Word any longer, and as we are approaching the end of this year be determined to obey God anytime He speaks to you.
No matter how close or how distant you are to those around do not speak or share unless The Lord permits you to.
Yield your Spirit to His will, and obey Him for He alone knows your tomorrow.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;”
“In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”
“Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil.”
“It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
God richly bless you, and thank you for reading all that God faithfully reveals.
I am grateful and thankful that The Lord is forever speaking and revealing, and I am looking forward to what He has in store for you and I.🙏
Thanks also to my family, friends, and my bello who has supported me since the birthing of God’s vision DaFruits.
I do love you loads my MOG.😊️️❤
Merry Christmas in advance, and a Happy New Year!🎁🎄🎉🎊🎆🎇😀
