A year that many of us have been waiting for has finally arrived! Freedom at last! This is what the Spirit of the Living God whispered to me about 2014...
Year 2014 has arrived to bring us the long-awaited freedom in so many areas of our lives. To some of us, the taste of freedom started in 2013. Unexpectedly, freedom came in the midst of severe bondages. It was in 2013 when we saw the rising of goodness and evil together, but goodness always prevail. When the enemy thinks he's on top of the game, God comes with a knockout punch that sends the enemy reeling into the deepest regret for having chosen you as a victim. Our God is never late, but always right on time to set us free! What an awesome God we serve!
It was on the 14th day of the first month in 30 AD when Christ was crucified to set us free from the bondages of eternal death. In 2014, humankind will experience the abounding grace and mercy of God in many ways. In this year, the voice of salvation will be amplified and strengthened to break the hardest hearts that swore against following Christ. Truth will be revealed and many will be set free. Even the self-confessed agents of darkness will come running to confess that Christ is Lord and the only Saviour of mankind. His powerful Blood was shed for us all, including those who crucified Him.
'Hast thou commanded the morning, since thy days and caused the dayspring to know his place. That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it? It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment. And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.'- Job 38:12-15.
In 2014, darkness will have no hiding place. The presence of the Lord will be like floodlights shaking out all wickedness and breaking the evil arm of Pharaoh that kept you in bondage all these years. Anything evil will be forced out to the open and totally disempowered to your mercy.Expect confessions from evildoers as they melt under the freeing power of the Blood. One by one, lies will be exposed as truth takes its rightful position by force. Bit by bit, you will see the Blood of Jesus washing your name clean and lifting it up to the sky where the stars dwell.
Oh yes, darkness that hides behind the pulpit will be exposed too. In 2014, It will surely be proven to you that indeed the manifestation of the end of times has begun. Our Lord Jesus Christ will be saying, 'I don't know you!', to the fake prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers of the Word, who go about deceiving innocent people of God. With their lips, they 'glorify' God, whilst with their hands they perform 'miracles' drawn from the powers of the beast. Day by day, they lure innocent people straight into the mouth of Satan under the pretence of serving Christ. Apostle John warned: 'Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God.This is the spirit of antichrist,which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.' - 1 John 4:1-3.
Have you ever asked yourself why people manifest in the same way when touched by these fakes? The answer is in Revelation 16:13- 'Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.'
Because of impatience, greediness and pride, some pastors are turning to demonic powers to quickly fill up their churches by performing miracles of the dragon. They renounce Christ and covenant with Satan to get rich fast. Have they forgotten that when the enemy took Jesus to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendour, Jesus refused to fall into the trap of bowing down and worshiping Satan. He said, 'Get thee hence, Satan; for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.'- Matthew 4:10. Don't you think it is strange for all people in the altar queue to be possessed by one demon? If one vomits a frog or fish, then everyone who follows will vomit the same frog or fish. God gave us His wisdom not to be fooled by the enemy. Run away from a church that does not pronounce the Blood of the Lamb. Don't shout strange words or names that cannot be found in the Bible. You will be covenanting with demonic spirits that will make you to operate under their spells. Your spiritual eyes will fall into complete darkness, and like a robot, you will follow every command of Satan.
The bible warns us against false teachers, and says: 'There were were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them- bringing swift destruction on themselves . Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed, these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping... They have left the straight way and wandered off to follow the way of Balaam...'- 2 Peter 2 (whole chapter).
In 2014, we will see the exceedingly great power of the Blood of the Lamb delivering people from the prisons of darkness. As the bible says, 'And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony...'- Revelation 12:11. It is in this year where the victory of the cross will become an unfathomable reality in the lives of many. The river of the Blood will flow to heal, mend, deliver, protect and make us the overcomers over the most stubborn evil resistance ever encountered. The Blood, the Blood, the Blood! In 2014, the powerful Blood of the cross will move in miraculous ways to set the magnitudes free. What Christ did for us in the cross will manifest profoundly, and people of God will begin to enjoy the freedom brought to us by the work of the cross.
'For you know that it was not the perishable things such a silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a Lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.'- 1 Peter 1:18-20.
Indeed, we are living in the latter days. In 2014 the fear of the Lord will fall on mankind as the powerful Blood of Jesus reigns. Captives will be set free. We will see the lost sons and daughters marching out of the land of captivity to eternal freedom. 'Though you were ruined and made desolate and your land laid waste, now you will be too small for your people.'- Isaiah 49:19. Brethren, stretch out your arms of love to welcome the captives back home. The Blood of the Lamb will be at work in 2014 healing broken souls and reconciling the captives with their loved ones. Yes,in this year of salvation, expect the unthinkable to happen and the impossible unfolding into divine victories. What was caught up in the enemy's snare for years will be miraculously set free!
As the book of St Matthew says, it took 14 generations to move the Israelites from captivity to the birth of Messiah, the Saviour of mankind- Matthew 1:1-16.
Did I tell you that the Holy Spirit says this freedom comes in double? Double freedom means receiving the double of what you deserve.Yes, it will be double completion, double restoration, double blessings, double rewards ... whatever that is due for your release will come in double! Remember Jacob in Genesis 29:14-30? It took him 14 years of hard labour to get double wives! Expect your double freedom in 2014! Enjoy it!
As you journey with us at this rendezvous of I AM, I hope that you will find the ultimate spiritual nourishment and fulfillment that only the Holy Spirit can offer.
Have a fabulous I AM experience!
Yours in Christ.
