The Almighty all Powerful God
And a friend that sticks closer than a brother.
Jesus Christ of Nazareth the reason for the season.
People of God I can boldly say like the psalmist, if not for the Lord who has been on our side where would we be today as a church, as a community and as a family.
Indeed this was the year we thought we will go under yet, we are still here standing and waxing strong together.
We saw the coal mine in our town shut down, the power plant shut down, and many other businesses going under which led to the exodus of families from our great little Jerusalem (Grande Cache) many of our church families were affected by this sudden change. So many had to move against their will and wish but through it all the Lord has been faithful.
We are grateful to the Lord for seeing us through another tough year yet again, as I reflect on this psalm all I can say is thank you Lord Jesus. Please celebrate the Lord with us people of God
Psalm 124 (KJV)
If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may (CMA) Israel say; 2 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us: 3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us: 4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: 5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul. 6 Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth. 7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. 8 Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
We are now looking forward to the coming year not with fear or anxiety you know why? Because we now know in whom we trust and believe that He is more than able and He shall do abundantly above all we can think or ask of Him.
Like David the Lord has trained our hands for war through all the things we had to go through. So we laugh now at the face of adversity hahaha...Glory to God, for by our God we ran through all the enemy's troop that came against us in the last 12 months. And by God also we leapt through walls of sickness, walls of financial limitations, walls of emotional limitation. Like Joshua of old, our walls all came tumbling down one after the other, Praise the Lord!
So yes, we are looking forward to the future in the spirit and the boldness of Moses, Joshua and Caleb. We boldly say to the pharaohs of our time let Gods people Go!
Because the Lord our God is on our side like a mighty terrible one.
No more fear we are now ready and prepared to engage any pharaoh in battle for the destiny of our family.
Jeremiah 20:11-12 (ESV)
11 But the Lord is with me as a dread warrior; therefore my persecutors will stumble; they will not overcome me. They will be greatly shamed, for they will not succeed. Their eternal dishonor will never be forgotten. 12 O Lord of hosts, who tests the righteous, who sees the heart and the mind, let me see your vengeance upon them, for to you have I committed my cause. We see 2017 as the year of freedom for the people of God Every member of our house hold and community we declare is coming out of the bondage and slavery of Egypt. Our mission and mandate in 2017 is to Deliver Gods prophetic message to every pharaoh in your life, in your family and in your community.
(Exodus 5:1 (KJV) And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.
LET MY PEOPLE GO, SIN LET MY PEOPLE GO POVERTY LET MY PEOPLE, FEAR AND FAILURE LET MY PEOPLE GO DEPRESSION AND DEFEAT LET MY PEOPLE GO SICKNESS AND DISEASE ‘ESPECIALLY CANCER’ LET MY PEOPLE GO We claim 2017 as our year of freedom as we contend for that which is ours in Jesus mighty name. Merry Christmas and a freedom filled New Year from my family, office staff and board members! May the sweet smell of victory and freedom fill your home in 2017 and beyond in Jesus Name.
