For the up and coming year of 2008, the church is getting back into the book of acts,
back on the right tract. It is a year of restoration of the great move of God as it were in the early church.
One has to go back
to the book of Isaiah first in order to find out what has been the blockage of the flow of God's anointing. And read about
the restoration of the people of God. In chapter 58 explains how the people were fasting wrongly for they were fasting to
become a load voice on high and God reprimanded them for such. They were fasting for strife and debates and to smite the wickedness
to make their voice heard.
He let them to know
what they were to abstain from was actually stop thinking as they had been. Definition of fast means, to abstain (stop doing).
God was telling them to abstain from coming against the wickedness and to start focusing on what they were to do. It becomes
very clear that God was not pleased with the fast they were doing, actually he told them abstain from their fasting, abstain
(stop doing) from your way of thinking.
Here we find what
the church has been doing today focusing on all of the bad, fasting as to bring down the bad and coming against the wickedness
and this is the same thing they were doing in the Old Testament.
Now the time has
come for the children of God to get back on track, back to what God called us to do in the first place you have to read in
Isaiah 60:11 actually tells what God wants done, he wants his gates open continually, they shall not shut day or night.
Looks like some walls
are about to come down and the children of God are going to be coming out of hiding and have the true light to shine out to
the lost in this world and are not to fight against them but to proclaim the year of the Lord through out the world.
One needs also
to read in Isaiah 61 just what it is God is bring about for the church today as he did in the days gone by. Here it is talking
about, the spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord hath anointed me to preach glad tidings unto the meek; he hath
sent me to bind the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that morn; To appoint unto
them that morn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of the joy for morning, the garment of praise for the
spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting to the Lord, that he might be glorified.
In the latter part of verse 11 tells us, will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
This is where the
church is to be now it is the year of the Lord, a year of new beginnings and a year of praise and joy with our hearts opened
and our gates opened for all to come in and be redeemed.
So the year of 2008
is the acceptable year of the Lord the year of getting back to the book of Acts.
Let us put on the
garment of praise, let us go back to our first love, lifting up the Lord God. Let our temples be filled with his glory.
I was shown a vision of the up and coming events that are going to be taking place. I saw a very large stage and on the side
of the stage where people had normally came up on was closed and they could no longer come up on the stage. I then saw the
very front of the stage and it was the gates of the Lord and he was about to enter onto the stage , lights were so very beautiful
and all were waiting His appearing.
He then told me that the day of man was no longer going to be preforming that the carnal mans days were done and it was His
day. Great things are about to take place and people are going to see a true manifestation of the Lord.
