HOW TO MAKE YOUR PROPHECIES COME TO PASS

“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation” (2 Peter 1:19-20).

The Bible is full of so many prophecies that you may think it is a joke. The reality is that they are all true and we must take them all serious. As I speak on how to make these prophecies come to pass in your life, do not joke with them. Take it seriously and you will see the word of God being fulfilled practically in your life!

“And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:” (Colossians 3:10). Your natural self, unimproved physically, is not so nice. If you come as you are, it is not the best version of yourself that can be presented. That is why you must put on the new man because the old man is not nice.

“But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. 9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; (Colossians 3:8-12).

So how do you make these prophecies come to pass? You must first and foremost accept people as Christians and not by their tribe, nationality or color. “Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all” (Colossians 3:11). Your greatness is greatly reduced the more concerned you are with the tribes and nationalities of individuals. Your greatness comes from the number of people you can relate with diverse backgrounds. The more you differentiate people by their nationality, the less great you become.

To become a great person, you must be full of kindness and mercy. “Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;” (Colossians 3:12). Your greatness is connected to the mercies you have. The greatness of your marriage is directly connected to the mercies and kindness you have. The people you are kind to, will be the greatest and most committed people you have in your life. Before you have authority, you are to be kind. God will not give you authority if you are not kind. Everyone will receive a little power at one point of their life so always remember this that your greatness is linked to your ability to show kindness and mercy.

“Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;” (Colossians 3:12). Humbleness of mind and meekness are a requirement to becoming great. Decide to be a humble person or nobody. Meekness is the manifestation of humility in you. The lack of meekness in you is the lack of seeing in you. When you cannot see, the Bible calls it stubbornness. Stubbornness and inflexibility are dangerous traits to have. There must be a place where when you are told you are wrong, that is the end of it. There must be a voice in your life that when you hear, brings about the conclusion of your argumentative nature. It is good to have beliefs but there is a point where the Lord says put it off. Today marks the end of stubbornness, delusions and inflexibility in your life!

HOW TO DEVELOP THE SEED OF GREATNESS

I want to begin a very important series today on “How To Develop The Seed of Greatness In You.” What is the seed of greatness?

Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God” (Luke 8:11).

The seed of greatness is real! There is a seed of greatness in you. Greatness is a biblical concept. It was prophesied upon John the Baptist that he would be great. If Jesus said the least in the kingdom is greater than John the Baptist, then, there is greatness in you. This same greatness was prophesied over Abraham. If Abraham is great and you are one of his children, then you are going to be great as well! “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29). Greatness is promised to us through the word of God and through the prophecies.

“And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also” (Genesis 1:16).

There are two main lights we use on the earth, moonlight and sunlight. God made two sizes; one great and one not so great. The greater one was to rule and dominate in the day and the smaller, lesser light in the night. God is in the business of making greater light and lesser light. I prophesy to you that you are one of the greater lights! You have received the prophecy of greatness for your life. I am prophesying to you, greatness, greatness, greatness, greatness, greatness, greatness, greatness. That is your destiny! You are going to be as great as God has determined.  How do we develop this seed?

Now the parable is this: The seed [the mystery] is the word of God” (Luke 8:11).  When I am preaching, I am throwing seeds in your life! The seed is a very powerful weapon. As I keep speaking, they are being thrown out there and they are fighting for us! It is fighting devils.

“(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)” (2 Corinthians 10:4).

What do these weapons do? They cast down imaginations. When your thinking is a certain way, Satan is actually in it. The weapons that God has given us are for casting imaginations down, and things that are against the knowledge of God. The weapons are fighting the statements and things that are contrary to what God has said about your life. The seeds also bring to captivity certain thoughts. “….and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5). Just try marrying an individual who has certain thoughts. You will then realize how unsafe you truly are. The thoughts you are having reveal the presence of spirits. That is why listening to messages is one of the most important things in your life!! Receive the seed of greatness in you! Receive the seed of the word of God in your life!

THE BLESSINGS OF ABRAHAM – TITHING

It is a blessing to be back home after a wonderful season of Give Thyself Wholly Conferences in the South African cities of Soweto and Cape Town. What a blessing! Today, I would like to go back and continue sharing on the greatness of Abraham for the final week.

You are going to experience the greatness of Abraham in your life! The Bible says that we are the seed of Abraham. Therefore, as the seed of Abraham, we are blessed with the blessings of Abraham. The blessings of Abraham are so great that there are even songs that speak of his blessings being ours. What a blessing it is to be part of the seed of such a blessed individual! Abraham is so great that so many individuals claim him. At least three world religions claim Abraham as their father: Christians, Jews and Muslims. When you are great, everyone wants to claim you. Galatians 3:29 says, And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” So rest assured, as a believer, you are an heir of Abraham.

It is important for you to know the steps Abraham took to become such a great blessing. When you go to school, it is expected that you will hear many logical things. These things will have explanations. However, when you come to church, you must expect to hear things that you must believe. Like it is said, this Christian walk we are in is by faith and not by logical explanations. One of the great things about Abraham was his ability to tithe. “Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils. But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises” (Hebrews 7:4,6). Those who say tithing is under the Old Testament law must read this verse properly. Abraham lived long before the laws given by Moses. Long before the laws, the father of faith practiced something which you and I must practice. I want to teach you how to practice these things as a young person. Many things that you do as young person, you find it much easier to continue doing for the rest of your life. Even with evil, when you start at a young age, you find it difficult to stop it. Sometimes, purity is not about a lot of “dos” and “don’ts”. Sometimes, it is about abstaining from them as a young person. That is why it is better to know God early and as a young person. As you grow up, it is far easier to abstain from sin if you abstained from them as a young person. It is difficult to reintroduce new things to an older person. All sin is the same. Once your flesh learns it, you may be surprised that it is not easy to obey God’s law. This same principle works on tithing. People who do not pay tithes as young people struggle with it for the rest of their lives. If you learn it now, you will never calculate your money without excluding God’s tithe. When it comes to your life, learn things as a young person. Learn tithing from today! As a young person, you can also fall but you must fight back. Fight to abstain from sin today. Fight to practice tithing from today!

CRUSADES BY EVANGELIST DAG HEWARD-MILLS

The year 2016 found the Healing Jesus Campaign team in many southern African countries preaching the gospel and winning the lost at all cost! At the end of 2016, the Lord sent the team to the country of Zimbabwe where many came to know and give their lives to Christ. There were countless miracles as many blind eyes were opened, deaf ears opened and, terminal diseases healed in the name of Jesus. The greatest miracle of all was seeing thousands rush to give their lives to Christ each night of the campaign. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever! The nation of Zimbabwe has truly been transformed and we, the Healing Jesus Campaign team, look forward to where the Lord will send us in 2017, our year of greatness!

THE GREATNESS OF ABRAHAM

I have been sharing a lot about greatness because it is our year of greatness. You are going to be great in the house of the Lord. Last week, I spent some time speaking on the greatness of Abraham. Today, I would like to continue speaking on the subject of Abraham’s blessing.

“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing” (Genesis 12:2). Abraham was promised greatness so much so that God promised to make even his name great. When you look at Abraham, there are things about him that we must follow if we want to follow in the footsteps of greatness. One of these things was Abraham’s wealth. And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south. And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold. And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents. And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together” (Genesis 13:1-2, 5-6). This is one of the principles of economics, that the land will not be able to sustain the people in it. “And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar” (Genesis 13:10). Sometimes, you have a group of people moving together that have similar features: they are all prospering, all doing well and more, just like Abraham and Lot. However, Lot was not called. Abraham was. When there are groups together, you must know that even though they may look similar, they are not all similar or called. It is important for you to recognize greater callings in people and not to equalize yourselves. Even though I went to school at the same time with my assistant Bishops, they have never related with me as coequals. They have always recognized a great calling on my life. When you are with someone, do not allow it to get into your head and  say “we are all called.” That is the thought of an “orangu” (a disloyal person). This thought will make you disconnect yourself from the real blessing.

“And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar. But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly” (Genesis 13:10,13). Lot chose a land that in the natural looked good but was full of sinful people. When you are making decisions, do not make decisions just based on natural prosperity. Do not say to yourself “this looks good so I am going to do it for financial reasons.” Even in the world, never do anything solely because of money. It is not a good aim. Those who are not focused on money in business are the ones who obtain it. Money is a very destructive goal in any endeavor. If everything is about profit, it does not work well. Receive the grace to make decisions not because they look good but because they are in alignment with God’s will for your life. You are following in Abraham’s greatness.

HOW TO BE GREAT LIKE ABRAHAM

2017 truly is your year of greatness. You are going to be great in the sight of God this new year. Now I have been sharing with you all about greatness! Some time ago, I would have thought that when someone spoke about greatness, it would have been in relation to pride, arrogance or something of that nature. However, I have come to realize that greatness is truly something biblical. God spoke to many people telling them that they would be great and we are privileged to be related to these people.

For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb” (Luke 1:15). Now these words were spoken about John the Baptist before his birth. However, Jesus also spoke saying that we would be greater than John the Baptist (Matthew 11:11). So by these words, you are great! It is difficult to believe how great you are but accept it. Remember that as many as received and as many as believed, to them he gave power to become the sons of God. So today, I am prophesying to you because through prophesies, many great things will happen to you.  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David” (Luke 1:32). This was spoken about Jesus and in Hebrews 2:11, we are told that Jesus is not ashamed to call us brothers. The brother of a goat is a goat and the brother of a lizard is a lizard. In the same way, the brother of a great person is a great person. You are becoming great this year. I am prophesying greatness unto you as I have been commanded!

Today, I would like to continue speaking on how to be great like Abraham. Genesis 12:2 says “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing.” Now we are clearly shown how to become a blessing in this scripture. Blessings make you great. Declarations from God make people great. Everyone must seek to be blessed and avoid things that bring about curses. What made Abraham’s blessings multiply and make him such a blessed person? If you read Genesis 12:1-2, Abraham was told to go forth to the land that God has showed him. “Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee” (Genesis 12:1). The first thing to notice is that God’s calling makes a person great. God never called somebody to demote them. So, do not reject the call of God. The genuine call of God at first looks like nothing. People who are always looking for something before believing are the people that never get anywhere with God. To please God, you must have faith! All of you who are still telling God to show you something before you move on His behalf must change. When God calls you, go! It is a sign that He really wants to bless you. You are prospering and becoming great through the prophesies in your life! (Ezra 6:14).

Blessings!
