May I use this medium to specially welcome you to 2017. You are welcome to 2017, a year with a difference for you in all ramifications of life in Jesus most exalted name.
How quickly are end time prophecies getting fulfilled in our time. As it is written in Isaiah 60:1-2 among other similar prophecies:
“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
2 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
These moments are right here with us now. However, as believers, we should not fail to be focused on God’s unfailing promise of divine exemption as clearly stated in the same passage:
“….but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.” Is. 60:2
It is very clear that no matter how gross the darkness is, the glory of the Lord shall continue to reflect in our lives. To the world, it is a season of horrors and sorrows but for us as covenant Children, “Our Case is Different!”
When they are begging, we will be giving; when they are selling off their properties, we will be buying; when they are sorrowing under the plagues of the wicked, we shall be rejoicing under the canopy of our God; when they are hungry, we shall be feeding them and we shall be clothing them in their nakedness.
In conclusion, the key to this exemption is our absolute commitment to serving God and His interest. Therefore, engage your entire spirit, soul and body in promoting the affairs of His kingdom so you can become distinguished as His precious jewel (Mal. 3:17) .
This year, you will surely make a difference!
