Exodus 12:1-2 “Now the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.”
Psalm 105:37 “He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.”
Allow me to inspire you for a few minutes. I don’t know about you but the year is not yet over! I said, the year is not yet over… I know that we are just a few hours from the New Year and we are about to step over onto a brand new path forward in this ministry – hoping to revisiting some old territories and looking forward to discovering new ones, and to initiate brand new plans of what we want God to do for us – we are hoping for some exciting and blessed times in the year to come. But this year is not yet over…
In Exodus Chapter 12 verses one and two, God spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying, “This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.”
Here in this verse from Exodus, God is about to deliver the Israelites from 430 years of Egyptian bondage; this is the eve of their departure from their long enslavement. And on this night, God through Moses is instituting a New Year – a new era – He is instituting the sacred calendar so that Israel and the world can know His prophetic plan for the ages!
This for Israel is a new beginning – a fresh new start as a freed and redeemed people! They are on the threshold of stepping over into destiny and purpose with God orchestrating this movement with a great demonstration of His power. Here, they were about to step over into something new. Next year is prophesied to be the year of destiny. And guess what? We too can step over into something new, a brand new beginning in Jesus Christ…
Since We Are Not Yet Gone – Let’s Make the Best of What is Left
In my day we used to sing an old song that says, “Before this time another year I maybe gone!” And since another year hasn’t yet quite arrived, and since we are still here in this year, though a few hours left – I must redeem the time of what is left of this year and make the best of it… I know you might be saying, “well, bishop, want can I expect in these last few hours of this year?” I want you to know that you can expect everything that is in line with the will of God… And if you don’t get that healing or if no one stop by this Church and give you $10,000 don’t think that this year will end in failure. But if you would just recommit yourselves to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and renounce all of your setbacks of this year, a great miracle will take place in your soul and in your life. The year is not year over!
Year endings can be trying times – times of uncertainty. But you can make it a time of resolve for a brand new start…
It is always said that every year carries its number, meaning lots of folk’ die at the end of the year. So when December arrives folk begin to worry about dying or someone dying in the family. And since we are all still here we can inquire of the Lord for a last minute miracle. Hallelujah!
At the beginning of a New Year, folk set goals and make resolutions. And if what they resolved to do hadn’t come to pass by Christmas day, they sometimes will become disenchanted or ashamed because they wonder how many heard them made the resolutions that are yet unresolved… I want you to know that it is not too late for your resolve to be resolved!
