Prayer and Fasting
‘From Glory to Glory’ greetings to you all in Jesus name.
Again, Happy New Year to all members of the Winners’ family worldwide and wishing you all a most empowering, enriching, rewarding and outstanding year in all respects in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
As we all know, our God is a God of times and seasons and this God makes all things beautiful in His time – Eccl. 3:1/11
We also understand that every divine agenda is a sworn verdict – Is. 14:24
But more often than not, every such agenda is unveiled through the ministry of the prophets – Amos 3:7/ Hos. 12:10
Therefore, prophetically, ‘From Glory to Glory’ is God’s agenda for us in the Winners’ family in 2016, but to see this prophecy fulfilled, we must, among others:
Receive the prophetic word in our hearts – Pro. 4:20-23/ Jn. 1:12/ Lk. 8:15
Believe God to confirm His Word – Lk. 1:45/ Rom. 10:10/ Heb. 4:2
Run with the divine agenda – Hab. 2:1-2/ 1Cor. 9:24-26/ Heb. 12:1-2
Keep at it until we see every word of prophecy fulfilled – Hab. 2:3-4/ Rom. 4:20-21/ Heb. 10:38
It should also be noted that every prophetic word shall be contested by the forces of darkness and this is where spiritual warfare comes to play for everyone that wants to see prophecies fulfilled. As it is written; “This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare” – 1Tim. 1:18
But prayer and fasting has proved to be a guaranteed platform for victory in spiritual warfare. Jesus Christ, in response to the challenge faced by His disciples in dealing with a particular spiritual stronghold said; “…..this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.” – Matt. 17:21
Every prophetic agenda is a spiritual open door, which usually attracts strong oppositions from hell and this is why we are called to engage in prayer and fasting in dealing with such spiritual holds – 1Cor. 16:9/ 1Tim. 1:18
We must, therefore, beware lest we sell off our glorious destiny to the belly like Esau, who for a morsel of bread sold his birthright – Heb. 12:16.
From all the above, it is obvious that the race towards fulfillment of prophecy begins with faith coupled with prayer and fasting so as to keep all satanic oppositions at bay and set the stage for speedy fulfillment of prophecy – Matt. 17:19-21.
Therefore, the prophetic focus for the month of January 2016 is:
Prayer and Fasting Facilitates Fulfillment of Prophecy – 1Tim 1:18
