I KNOW THE COST OF DOING WHAT HE HAS NOT SENT YOU.
ONCE BEATEN TWICE SHY.
WE LABOURED DANGEROUSLY IN KUMASI FOR 6 YEARS WITHOUT EXPRESSION.
I HAD NEVER GONE FOR ANY CRUSADE IN OTHER NATIONS WHERE WE HAVE BRANCHES BUT I WENT TO THAT SMALL TOWN FOR TWO CRUSADES.
WE SAW SIGNS BUT WE DIDN’T SEE IMPROVEMENT.
SOME FOLKS ARE AGITATED THAT WE HAVEN’T SPREAD IN CANAANLAND.
YOU ARE NOT THE ONE WHO SENT ME AND YOU CAN’T COMMAND ME FOR A SPREAD.
NEVER ASK AGAIN, “HOW SHALL THIS THING BE?” IT IS NOT A QUESTION TO ASK IN THE SCHOOL OF FAITH.
LEAVE GOD TO IT.
ONLY SERIOUS-MINDED BELIEVERS, NOT CHRISTIAN ACTIVISTS, NOT CHURCH ATTENDEES, EVER GET LISTED AS FRONTLINERS.

Special End of the Month Thanksgiving
Now very quickly, we have 3 sources of prophecies in the Kingdom.
1. First, the Word of God – 2 Peter 1:19-21
Take heed to what the content of the prophetic Word is and what is required to have it delivered and plug your life into it.
Take heed: don’t just trash it, don’t just throw it. Now, some fellows have gotten this (February Prophetic Focus), all they have is that they have a copy, they may never read it once.
But because some will read it, we will keep publishing…someday you may wake up and want to read it.
How do you make anything out of the month when you won’t even go through it? In case, you can’t read, ask someone, “read it to me, ‘ka si mi, je ki gbo’ (read it, I want to hear it)”
Take heed!! Get serious about it. That is the way it works.
And you do well as you take heed until the day star arises and they see you just up there flying.
-May Daystars will rise here
That equals stars among stars.
That is in spite of the shining of the sun, you will see the star.
Jesus calls Himself, ‘the bright and the morning star’ – Revelation 22:16
But it all comes as a result of taking heed to the prophetic Word and what it commands for you and me to do.
2. Secondly, we access prophetic Words through personal encounters with God.
Abraham had a personal encounter with God, raw encounter with God: “Arise, get thee out of thy country to a nation I will show you. I will make of you a great nation. I will bless and thou shall be a blessing” – Genesis 12:1-2
Moses had a personal encounter: I turn to see this wonderful sight and the Lord said to me, “come now and I will send you to Pharaoh that thou mayest bring my people Israel out of Egypt” – Exodus 3:4,10
How? Personal encounter with God.
3. Thirdly, through God sent prophets who are sent to show us what God wants to do next.
There are still Prophets here today.
Abraham told the rich fool in that parable of Christ, “if they will not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they hear if anybody comes down from heaven” – Luke 16:31
Straight! Prophets shall be here forever and there are those who are sent to us.
When we acknowledge those that are sent, He said, “there were many widows but unto none was Elijah sent but unto Zarephath” – Luke 4:25
There are Prophets sent to you. Don’t toy with them.
They bear God’s agenda to you, you plug into it, He shows.
-In this year of great multiplication of membership, there shall be great multiplication of grace and blessings in your life.
Because like begets like. As you enlarge your acreage of engagement, He increases your rate of advancement. You sow sparingly, you reap sparingly. You sow bountifully, you reap bountifully – 2 Corinthians 9:6
Don’t take His Word lightly or you carry no weight in His presence.
You can’t treat God’s Word with levity and expect Him to treat you with dignity.
“Move near to Me, I will move near to you; move away from Me, I will move away from you” – James 4:8
“You initiate My acts in your life.”
Every believer initiates the acts of God in his life.
“Go to Jordan and wash”: No. I am greater than going to Jordan. Jordan, everybody is passing. Okay, you will be passing, pass away with your leprosy to your house – 2 Kings 5:10
-It shall be an unusual year.
