Heaven on Earth greetings to you in Jesus’ name.
The God of Wonder-Double has come to tabernacle with us as a church and we must stay awake spiritually to take full advantage of this divine visitation for our supernatural change of position both as individuals and as a church. This is because every divine visitation is ordained to culminate in supernatural change of position – Ex. 29:45-46
When God came down to Egypt, He did not only come to bring them out of bondage but also brought them into the land of promise, the land that is flowing with milk and honey. Their 40-year sojourn in the wilderness was indeed a time of Heaven on Earth adventure – Deut. 6:23.
In the same vein, this divine visitation is ordained to launch us into the realm of Heaven on Earth both as a church and as individuals. This is because Heaven on Earth is God’s ‘promise land’ for us as a Commission this year.
Therefore, every winner must strive to enter into this realm by engaging actively in the prophetic life-line of Matthew 6:33 until it becomes the lifestyle of everyone of us, that is, seeking FIRST the interests of the kingdom of God on earth so that everything that others are dying to get shall be added to us.
Jesus Christ, in one of the parables, spoke about a king that made a great feast and invited many and when all was set, he sent his servant to say to them that were invited but with various excuses, they would not come. Then, he sent him to the streets and lanes of the city to bring all the challenged individuals he could find, he came back reporting that there is still more room. Then, he sent him the third time to go to the highways and the hedges and compel them to come that his house may be filled              – Lk. 14:16-23
From this parable, you will discover that the said-servant went three times before the house was filled. This implies that ‘once is not enough’ and that until there is no more room in the church, we must continue to engage spiritually and practically in bringing more souls into the kingdom.
We recognize that, multitudes are still in the valley of decision in our various territories, held hostage by the powers of darkness, some of which may never let go except by prayer and fasting             – Joel 3:13-14/ Matt. 17:20-21
In the light of the above, a 7-day of prayer and fasting is hereby proclaimed from Monday, 7th – Sunday, 13th September, 2015.
We should also be reminded that apart from the explosive church growth results that this proclaimed fast will generate, it is also a platform for the empowerment of the believer into next levels, which is key to commanding supernatural breakthroughs in our lives – Acts 2:1-4/ Acts 4:23-33/ Is. 45:1-3.
But while the prayer goes up, the sickles, must at the same time, be engaged to bring home the harvest and this is why we are going all out on a rescue mission to the multitudes that are in the valley of decision, who are heading for destruction without knowing. This is in line with the biblical directive; “And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, PULLING THEM OUT OF THE FIRE; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.” – Jude 1:22-23
Therefore, by the leading of the Holy Spirit and to the glory of God, we hereby flag off the second phase of the Wonder-Double Prophetic Agenda for the year tagged ‘Operation Rescue 2015’ from Monday, 7th September – Sunday, 25th October 2015.
Therefore, in the name of Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit, who is the Lord of the harvest, every local assembly in this Commission shall experience another supernatural wave of church growth so that within these prophetic 7 weeks, that is, by Sunday, 25th October 2015, every church in this Commission shall be minimum double the August average Sunday attendance. It shall be an holy invasion indeed across our various harvest fields, in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, amen and amen.

Jesus is Lord!
