2018 and the Great BUT

Well the New Year is under way, and I did not stay up to celebrate with the rest of the world to be enthralled with the spectacular firework displays and revelry. No, I went to bed and was tucked in snuggly well before 11pm. Hence the new year held no great excitement for me; just another ho-hum new year.

Reading this you may well concede that I am not overly excited by 2018. Far from it. For it is only when I read and hear the prophetic words of MEGA and metamorphosis, realignments, re positionings and such like that my spirit is quickened. In the kingdom of God, we are in for a cracker year with his mercy and love displayed as never before. We are in for a spectacular display of Gods fireworks as the heavens will be lit up with visions, dreams, angelic visitations, territory being reclaimed along with Satan losing many battles.

It is good to be alive and in Gods army at such a time as this. As I wait in the spirit, I see and sense a BUT; that will hinder many believers from enjoying the fulness of Gods blessings, for the full storehouse key will be lost to them.

The Lordship of Christ over our entire life is a subject we pretend to honour. We lie to ourselves that we have surrendered all to Christ. We mouth the words with sincerity and conviction, but our lifestyle tells the Holy Spirit we do otherwise. I sense an urgency in my spirit to allow Jesus to be the master of all aspects of our life. Today is the day to sign over all of our assets, relationships, career, body soul and spirit to the Father of lights.

In sense in my spirit that time is fast approaching when it will be to late to submit ourselves to the will of the Father, for God will not contend with us for ever. 2018 will be a time of building all those believers who have overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the testimony of his word and have not loved their lives. God is building in the coming year a Kingdom of Priests who will stand before him forever. These Kingdom of Priests will do greater things than Jesus himself accomplished while on earth.

But to enter into this company of kingdom priests one needs to surrender all on a daily basis and transact all our business with an attitude of abject worldly poverty. 2018 will be a time of consolidation for the future and only those surrendered to self with Christ Jesus as their Lord will qualify. There is an urgency in my spirit as I stand before Gods throne to sign up quickly to his Lordship over us rather than later.

I sense that there are numerous disciples who have held back on certain areas of their life for they are afraid of commitment in that area. No one enjoys having to lose control of their will, for we have been conditioned and trained otherwise by the worlds wisdom. Such thinking will hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us in 2018.

Now is decision time, for I believe Gods amnesty will not last for ever. Do you hear the call of the Holy Spirit to come out and declare that Jesus will be Lord of all aspects of our life?

As I sat in my Sunday service yesterday (1/7/18), the Lord spoke these words into my spirit: "New Beginnings, New Commitments and "Reset"!
Hallelujah! To God be all the glory!
