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 2018 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.


If 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 2017. 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.



1st STEP:



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 vomit?


   ·  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 spiritual unrest?



1) Are 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 sheep.

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.


2nd STEP:



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( spiritual, socio-economic):

That of the church the:

-Country and the world.

So, we don’t just jump up one morning and start shouting:

Happy new 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.


3rd STEP:




After the 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.

Unless 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 last month of the year 2017 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 from 17  March 2017 as the New moon rises(God made the moon to make the end of the moon Psalm 104: 19). 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.






   1.      Heavenly father, thank you that we are before you in the last month of the year 2017, 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.


   2.      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. 


   3.      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. 


   4.      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.

        Cont pray as the Holy Spirit may lead you.


May the wonderful blessings of the Lord be with you through this period.…/Imminent-End-of-the-World.…?
