Glory greetings in the precious name of Jesus Christ.
There is no doubt that the testimonies all through the month of July more than validates the fact that God’s wisdom works. It is my prayer that the encounters with the Spirit of wisdom that each one has experienced shall continue to speak throughout the remaining days of our lives.
Before our very eyes darkness is covering the earth and gross darkness the people, uncertainties pervading all realms of human spheres but God has ordained our exemption as it is written, “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee”. Is.60:1-2
Therefore, our triumph, breakthrough and glory in this hour of gross darkness is only guaranteed by light because nothing shines in darkness that is not lighted.
Light here implies:
· The entrance of His word (Ps.119:130)
· The revelations of His word (Eph.1:17-18)
· The spiritual understanding of His word (Matt.13:23)
But again light is in varying degrees, for instance we have: -Candle light,-Torch light, -Electric Bulb light,-Florescent light, –Flood light etc.
In the same vein we have the light of the sun and the light of the moon. – Is.60:1-2. But Apostle Paul shed more light on this in his epistle to the Corinthians where he said, “[There is] one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for [one] star differeth from [another] star in glory. I Cor.15:41
As observed from the above scripture, it is the intensity of light that determines the dimensions of glory. This is why the bible admonishes that, “And if any man thinks that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.” I Cor.8:2
Therefore the prophetic theme for the month of August 2012 is, It’s my Turn for a Turnaround - Is. 60:1-22.
We must all get set for higher dimensions of word encounters this month. I believe it is everyone’s turn for another turnaround experience because:
· Just one word from the Lord can trigger a dramatic turnaround in a man’s life – Is.9:8
· Also it is depth of insight in the word that determines our levels of command in life – Ps.45:3-5
· It is therefore time to awake from our sleep and put on the amour of light for a glorious triumph over all the powers of darkness – Rms. 13:11-12 / Eph.5:14
August 2012 shall indeed be a month of divine encounters in the word for all Winners worldwide. (Amen and amen).
