New Year, New Start !

Thank God for his grace that kept us through the year of 2013 and into 2014! Many wanted to make it to this day but they couldn’t! Many lost their loved ones last year but we thank the Lord Jesus that he kept us as well as our loved ones. He is a faithful God indeed. Continue to trust in him and to do his will in this year.

I decree and declare that the year of 2014 shall be a fruitful year for you in Jesus name! Amen.

Genesis 1 – 13 – Creation

So, today is the first day of my reading plan. I have to say, God is amazing. It is amazing to be able to read the Word of God and feel peace in your heart, mind and soul. The Word of God is reassuring and comforting. I encourage you to read the Word of God daily. The Bible says in Joshua 1:8 “Study this Book of instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.” When the Bible says something, there is no two ways about it. You either follow it, exactly the way it says or you just don’t. There are no negotiations. The Bible also says in Matthew 6:11 “Give us today our daily bread.”, my point is the bible is meant to be bread that you eat on a daily basis, not cake that you eat on special occasions like church on Sundays or at Weddings.

Moving on.. Genesis 1:26 says that “God said, “Let US make man in OUR image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and every creeping thing that creeps on Earth.” God created you in his image and he gave you dominion over all the earth. Do you realise how much power you have in your hands? The Word of God, which according to John 1:1 is God himself says that he gave YOU, yes YOU dominion over all the earth and all things that walk on it and all the fish of the sea. Don’t let the devil trick you into not realising your worth. If a millionaire doesn’t know that he’s a millionaire he will carry living life like a pauper because he doesn’t know his wealth. Isn’t that true ? Recognise brothers and sisters that this word echoes deeper into your soul and runs deeper in your veins than you may think. By simply speaking, commanding, you can change your life for the better and you can help those around you. Genesis 1:3 says “And God said, Let there be light; and there was light.” I want to make two points about the following verse. Number one: God said. God spoke, and what he said came to pass. We are made in the image of God and like God, we can say things and they will come to pass. What we say can be positive or negative, either way it will come to pass. YOUR WORDS HAVE THE POWER TO CREATE OR DESTROY. The Word of God also says in Isaiah 57:19 “I create the fruit of the lips..”. To me that seals the deal because it simply states that what your mouth produces I [God] create. This is one of the reasons why you as a Child of God should cease from speaking negativity over your life and the life of others because as you speak, it is coming into existence. Number Two: God commanded. By God saying, “Let there be..” it was a command. A command is opposite to a request. A request is to ask for something in this sense you could get your request denied or accepted. However a command is to give an authoritative order. By God command he was exercising power and dominion over what was already there henceforth he said “Let there be..” and not “May I please have the light..”. In this same way I’m trying to convey to you that the Spirit world, doesn’t listen to requests, the Spirit world doesn’t need you to ask or beg. The Spirit world doesn’t respond to pity, this is because whatever you need in your life that will help you to lead a better and fulfill the will of God is already waiting for you in the Spirit world. This is why you need to command, the same way that our Father who created us in his image did so. This is why the word of God says in Job 22:28 “You shall decree a thing, and it will be established for you…”. A decree is an official order which is issued by a legal authority. The word of God doesn’t say, “make a request” it says DECREE ! In this case we as the children of God have the legal authority to make an official order because God himself gave us dominion over every single thing on and under the Earth. In this way brothers and sisters I urge you to exercise the power you have over the dominion that God has given you.

As I was reading I also came across Genesis 4:10 which says “And he said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.” I know what you’re thinking, blood speaks ? Yes blood speaks. That is what the Word says. This also brought to mind a church service I attended a few weeks ago which mentioned this verse in passing. The speaker basically stated that when you persecute someone, whether it be through speech by speaking false things about them or physically harming them, whether they be dead or alive their blood will want to be avenged. Their blood will cry out like the blood of Abel. In this way he gave us a ‘warning’saying be careful how you treat others, be careful how you speak about others because if you persecute them, their blood will want to be avenged. This is a bit off the topic but hey, Genesis 9:4 states that “But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.” Yes, the life of a being is in its blood!

One verse that inspired and encouraged me was Genesis 5:24 it states that “And Enoch walked with God; and he was not for God took him.”. Can you imagine, Enoch walked with God. Wow how amazing is that. I don’t know if any of you realise how powerful this tinny message is. God seeks to walk and talk with us every single day. He seeks to be in every aspect of our lives. Enoch had fellowship with God the same way he could talk to a human on the road. In Jesus’ name I pray that each one of us as children of the Creator become this close to God. I pray in Jesus’ name that anyone reading this message who has never experienced sweet fellowship with the presence of God will experience it in this day and his life will forever be changed. Amen.

Stay Blessed People of God.
