Calvary greetings in the name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who has made it possible for us to come into the month of August 2011 in Our Year of Great Expectation (Rom. 4:18-19). God declared unto us that we should expect great things this year, that “all will be well”. Our Covenant keeping God has being faithful to His Word and we give Him all the glory. Therefore, in this month of August we expect a Great Awakening and revival individually and collectively and across the land in Jesus name (Habakkuk 3:2). Do not be left out in this great move of God.
God is seeking a prepared people. The Bible in Ezekiel 22:30 God says “and I sought for a man among them that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.” Will you be that man that The Almighty can trust? God is seeking a praying people! It’s my prayer that we will make ourselves available to declare His full counsel across the land boldly and courageously. We have to stand for this generation for the great awakening “for the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea” (Hab. 2:14). We need the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
We have to represent God to the people and the people to God. Jesus said, I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18). Desire is key to accomplishing this. A desire to living an holy life, sanctification and commitment to prayer and declaring of His Word. The Bible in 2 Chronicles 7:14 says “if my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” May our prayers be heard in Jesus name. God is certainly up to something great in these days of His power. Many people want to do what they think best and what seems right to them. We are warned not to do this in Proverbs 14:12, “there is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” People want to do things their way and as it seem right in their own eyes. Please consider the consequences of being deceived by error.
The Psalmist declares that “Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in” (Psalm 24:7). Our Christianity shouldn’t be a lukewarm one. He will spew you out (Rev. 3:16). God said, my people shall be willing in the day of His power (Psalm 110:3). Remember Apostle Paul’s declaration in Romans 1:16 that “for I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Brethren, we are living in days of extraordinary power. God is increasingly manifesting himself among His people in great power. I urge you this season to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling for it is God which works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure (Phil. 2:12-13).
