Dear Brethren In
Christ, Are You A Born Again Child Of God In Christ? Then Which Is The Right
Time For You To Prepare And Get Into Your New Year Wishes Of Blessings?
May we pray that the Lord will lead us
in a thorough stock taking of our life before him, as we follow the guiding
steps below, so as to enable us better enter His airs of New Year blessings in
our lives, for the year 2013 that is at the corner.
Yes, the first Month of
the year that the bible says: “ The LORD
spoke to Moses and Aaron in Egypt: “ This MONTH IS TO BE THE FIRST MONTH OF THE
YEAR FOR YOU” Exodus 12:1-2(read ahead to verse 20), is soon.
This is the pass over period we call
today “Easter” in the Roman month of March, marking the departure of the people
of Israel from Slavery in Egypt, to Canaan, which is already at the corner.
we believe as the bible says :
“ God controls the Times and the seasons ” Daniel
2: 21, then we are today in the 12 Month of the year 2010. I follow the rising
and setting of the Moon just as my unlearned parents do in the village, to know
the beginning and end of a new month. They don’t follow the Roman Calendar, but
are led by God’s spirit that says in the bible: “ You created the MOON to mark
the END OF MONTHS” Psalms 104:19.
We just celebrated few month ago, the
death memorial of Saint Sylvester as new year and calling for God to bless.
Knowing that God is an orderly God, and not that of disorder; and equally the
God of the living and not that of the death, I don’t see how possible he would
have blessed something which is opposing to his commands.
You will all agree with us that, you can’t
justify the feast of Saint Sylvester as new year with any word of God. If you
can, then I beg you to quote only one!. If you can’t, then you better submit to
the word of God. We don’t do what we think is good for God in the name of
salvation by grace in Christ, but what God commands us to do.
PREPARATIONS IN STOCK TAKING
A) STOCK TAKING OF OUR LIVES FOR THE
PAST YEAR AT INDIVIDUAL OR PERSONAL LEVEL.
1) Look at
your SPIRITUAL LIFE with the Lord in terms of:
· Spiritual growth since you believed: Is it
progressing or regressing?
· Has your love of the world and the things of
the world been growing more higher, or more lower?
Have you notice an attitude in your life of
more violence towards sin, or you have turned back to committing the very sins
you had long confessed and abandoned just like a dog will turn back to it’s
· Have you known your specific assignment from
the Lord and you are busy doing it, or you are just there like that after 1,2,
3, 4, 5...years, wasting time doing nothing? ( Why are you wasting the whole
day here doing nothing? He asked them... Matthew 20:6).
· Are you bearing fruits, or you are still
spiritually sterile as you were in the world? ( Then Jesus told them this
parable: There was once a man who had a fig-tree growing in his vineyard. He
went looking for figs on it but found none.
So he said to the gardener, “Look
for three years I have been coming here looking for figs on this fig-tree, and
I haven’t found any. Cut it down.... ” Luke 13:6-9. Every believer- born again
in Christ, is a fig-tree in his vineyard. Etc, etc....
· What of your spiritual investment before the
Lord for the salvation of the souls of your family members? Have you been
tarrying before the Lord in their favor for God to convince and convict their
hearts of sins and provoke repentance in their hearts?
Or you have been look
warm and cold, and instead prefer to be accusing and insulting them? You are
God’s representative in your family and will render account of their souls
before God on the judgment day.
2) Look at
your SOCIO-ECONOMIC LIFE:
i) Is your
socioeconomic life (Marital , financial, health etc..) moving on the trend of
the Lord as you collaborate with Him? Are you
consciously assured that He is leading you from one step to the other,
or you are just confused, desperate and frustrated in a standstill, not knowing
what is happening, and counting on good luck?
ii) Are you in spiritual rest in your socioeconomic life before the Lord, or in
TAKING AT GENERAL LEVEL OF THE BODY OF CHRIST:
you growing in harmony into maturity with the general body of Christ, which is
universally one and indivisible guided by the Holy Scriptures under the
teaching of the Holy Spirit, or you are yoked to your denominational doctrines?
2) Has your spirit been raised beyond denominational barriers so that your mind
is broadly opened to share exhortations
with other members of the body of Christ
scattered worldwide, or you believe and swear only by your denominational
doctrines? The bible says:
“ It was He who gave gifts.....for the work of
Christian service in order to build up the body of Christ...And so we shall all
come together to that ONENESS in our faith...we shall become MATURE people,
reaching to the very height of Christ’s full stature” Ephesians 4:11-13.
3) If you are a leader over God’s people, how can you clearly present before
God your stewardship to him in your tending of his flock? Is it negative or
positive? May these words of the Lord be your mirror to look through:
-“ You take care of yourself but never tend the
You drink the milk, wear clothes made from the wool,
and kill and eat the finest sheep. But you never tend the sheep.
You have not taken care of the weak ones, healed
those that are sick, bandaged those that are hurt, brought back those that
wandered off, or looked for those that were lost. Instead you treated them
cruelly. Because the sheep had no Shepard, they were scattered and wild animals
killed and ate them...” Ezekiel 34: 2-5. Etc....
Yes, we must yearly take stock of our life before
God to enable a better continuation. Else what are you wishing God to bless for
the new year?
The drama is that, in our business enterprises, we
know very well how to yearly take stock of our business activities, but when it
comes to God, we think that we can just do anything in the name of being saved
by grace in Christ.
BUILD UP HEART’S
DESIRES IN COLLABORATION WITH THE LORD, AS WISHES FOR A PROSPEROUS WAY FORWARD
TO BE BLESSED BY HIM FOR THE NEW YEAR.
Therefore, after all these stock taking of our life
for the past year, we can now in collaboration with the Lord put things right,
where they went wrong then place before
Him what we aspire for the new year as wishes for Him to bless for our lives(
That of the church the:
-Country and the world.
don’t just jump up one morning and start shouting:
year!!!!!, in Eating, drinking, dancing, sexual immorality, drunkenness, etc.
Look brethren, our God is a mighty God! He is not a child that we just come to
clown before Him. Such are the works of the devil, and I don’t see how saints
of the Lord that we are, can be part-takers.
IS THE CELEBRATION BEFORE GOD IN THANKS GIVING AND PRAISES IN THE FIRST MONTH
OF THE YEAR AS WE PROCLAIM AND ENTER OUR NEW YEAR AIRS OF BLESSINGS
first and second step of stock taking and building of new vision for a better
way forward, we then proclaim it into the new year for God’s blessings to prosper.
We do this
in feasting, rejoicing, praises and thanks giving to the Lord as commanded in
Deuteronomy 14:22-26 in the first month of the year, irrespective of the day.
It can therefore be on the 1st, 2nd , 3rd, 4th, 6, 10th, 15th etc, there will
be no problem.
the born again children of God generally agree on a particular day to generally
do it worldwide which preferably can be at the rising of the new moon, they can
individually choose any day and will not be sinning before God. The fundamental
is that, it should be in the first month of the year.
When the present moon now which is up representing the 12 month of the year
2012 dies before the Lord, it's next
rising will be the first month of the year that the Lord spoke of in exodus
12:1-20. This will be around March. I will let you inform. Visit debate blog
Number 19, for details on this, as to be well clarified.
As I equally withdraw to take stock, I will then come out with my prayers of
wishes of new year blessings to my brethren, the church and the world. If there
is any brethren who has any specific thing to wish me handle specifically, then
you write me spelling them out clearly:
But you must be sure to have followed
the teachings on this topic carefully from the previous topics, and let your
spirit be buried into it as God’s truth. Therefore, you must have been
enlightened to spiritually denounce the false new year wishes of blessings you
claim from saint Sylvester by celebrating his death memorial as new year,
because they were curses.
You cannot be blessed by the death spirit of saint Sylvester, and the Spirit of
the living God. You must choose one. Either you choose the LORD, or the Roman
Catholic Saint Sylvester.
Equally, don’t say “ Let me just try
and see if it will work”. The bible says you shall not put the Lord your
God to test”. So you must read and pray as to be spiritually well convicted of
the truth, before you get into it.
Heavenly father, thank you that we are before you in
the 12 month of the year 2012, coming to an end in few weeks for us to enter
into the first month of the year which you spoke of in Exodus 12: 1.
You are our heavenly father before whom we must
yearly render an account of our lives! It is true that Satan changed your Times
and Laws and we your saints have been obeying him till date, just as you had
said in Daniel 7:25 and therefore disobeying you in obedience to him. We pray
that you forgive us.
We humble before you now to beg that you teach and
lead us in stock taking of our lives for this year which is ending, so as to
better enter into your blessings of the new year that is at the corner.
We pray that you release the light of your Holy
spirit upon our hearts, as to better confront it in a sincere stock taking void
of deceits and falsehood, as to squally face the truth that your know about us,
in our walk with you. Do it Lord, so that we may correct ourselves and better
enter a new year of spiritual and socio-economic prosperity before you.
5. May you open our minds
into the understanding of this teachings so that we will be led by the holy
Spirit to obey for our blessings, rather than carnally trying to test you for
our own disfavor.
pray as the Holy Spirit may lead you.
May the wonderful blessings of the Lord be with you through this period.
