This prophetic word for March is available in PDF HERE
I want to start by reminding you that 2019 is our year of Divine Restoration. So far the Lord has shown many of us how He is restoring us, but I also want to point out that prophecy is progressive. This means that we can build on each prophetic word the Lord gives us; be it the yearly or monthly prophecy, we are to add and advance in it. For example, when a new prophetic word is released for a new month, we don’t discard of the previous month’s prophetic word and only focus on the new prophetic word. We are to take our yearly prophetic message [in this case; the year of Divine Restoration], and add every month’s prophetic message to it. In February we had the month of Increased Faith. So then, to receive and walk in the fullness of Divine Restoration, we ought to Increase in Faith; and this month we will have a new word to add to this.
Some times we find that some of those who follow the prophetic messages of the ministry are only interested in the title of the month; for example: Increased Faith, and they don’t even read the entire message. It is important to tie the scripture and the revelation the Lord has given with the title, otherwise you will miss on how to receive it into your life. On many occasions I hear of people saying: ‘This month prophetic word never came to pass in my life’ –or- ‘I doubt if the Lord has really given so and such a word’. This is mainly due to the fact that people don’t study the word which has been given; because within that same prophetic message is the instruction on how to materialize or bring into existence that which the Lord has released unto us.
It is also important that we look at what the Word of God tells us; and also what it doesn’t. In Luke 9:25 Jesus says: ‘For what is a man’s advantage, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away.’ In other words, there is a great advantage for us to follow the instruction of the Word, for it leads us to spiritual success and prosperity; which is far beyond the temporal success and prosperity of this world. It is through the Word of God that God advance us; therefore, it is vital that we understand that we also have a big part to play in the plan of God concerning our lives and ministry.
Let’s look at Isaac who was advanced by the Lord when he obeyed the Lord’s instruction to stay in the land and sow [Gen.26:1-13]. There was a severe famine in the land of Gerar, and people started moving to Egypt for survival. Isaac too thought it might be good to follow everyone, but the Lord had a better plan for him. When the Word came to Isaac to stay in the land struck with famine, he obeyed and sowed; yet there was no water; and rain was afar. Because Isaac listened to the Lord while everyone else was making a logical move to Egypt, the Lord blessed his dry field. The Bible says: ‘…and he waxed great… and grew until he became very great.’ In this, we can notice that he sewed when the Word of God came to him. In the same manner, when the Word of God comes to us concerning
our life and ministry, we ought to start sowing according to the Word we received. The very key principle seen in Romans 9:10 concerning salvation are to believe in your heart [that what God says] and to make confession with your mouth [after that which God said]. When God is about to advance you, this principle is key for the salvation of the things concerning that God is advancing you in – be it your career, your health, your finances, your relationships, your dire situations; and most importantly, your spiritual growth.
Jeremiah 29:11-12 shed more light on this by God saying: “I know the thoughts I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then you shall call upon Me, and ye shall go and pray unto Me, and I will hearken unto thee.” This is very instructive!
Through the apostles the Lord advanced His Kingdom and many thousands of souls were reached with the message of salvation, as we have record of these things in the book of Acts. The church of Acts was advanced for they followed the instruction of the Lord which came through the Apostles to meet in houses, share the Word of God and share meals… Every aspect about the church of Acts and the saints was advanced [Acts 2:42-47]. Advancement came for the church as well as individuals when they adhere to God’s instructions. The nation of Israel advanced against their enemies in the Old Testament when they obeyed the Lord. Wars were won, opposing nations and their powers was dismantled, and an inheritance of the promise land was in grasp when the people of Israel obeyed and followed the Lord. But it is important to also notice that this advancement came when people drew near to God – things started turning out just as God had promised.
A key quality in each of these men and women was what Ezekiel points to in chapter 1 and verse 12: “…each one went straight forward; wherever the Spirit was about to go, they would go, without turning as they went.” It is of vital importance that we follow the lead of the Spirit in our daily lives as these Cherubims, progressively coming unto the perfect obedience of the Word of God and the Holy Spirit.
Paul points us in the right direction when he says in Philippians 3:13 – ‘Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead.’ We sometimes fail to enjoy the grace of God because we are so troubled about things of the pass, but we will do good when we take heed to the words of Paul; after all, it came through revelation and inspiration of the Holy Spirit [Deut. 5:32]. James encourages the church in this manner: “…count it all joy when ye fall into diverse temptations. Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing” [James 1:2-4]. He continues to say in the next verse: ‘If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask God, that giveth all men liberty…’
This month, God wants to advance you, to give you things which seemed to be lost or things which once seemed to be out of reach.
This month of March is our month of ADVANCEMENT
Jesus tells us in Matthew 16:18 that the church will march on and the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church. ‘For what is a man’s advantage, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away’ [Luke 9:25]. There is an advantage for those who set the church before other things, for those who confine in the gathering of the saints, for those who follow instruction, for those who draw near to the Lord… The Lord is giving us advantage over every force of evil and wickedness. In fact, He has already spoiled the powers of darkness for our sakes. We are to take advantage of this!
Join us where you are in partaking in COMMUNION
prepare for yourself and loved ones a cup of red grape juice and a piece of bread
Place your hands over the cup and bread; and pray thus:
‘Dear Lord God; I ask you to bless this cup as it represents the blood of Your dear Son,
Jesus Christ; and also bless this bread as it represents the body of our Lord Jesus which was broken for us. Let Your Spirit be released over these items and bless us as we partake in communion as You have commanded us. In the name of Jesus – Amen!’
Let’s read together; Matthew 26:26-28
“And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said: Take, eat, this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying: Drink ye of it. For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the wine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”
Before partaking in the cup and bread, take a moment and release all types of unforgiveness; clear your heart and mind, and forgive the trespasses of anyone who might have wronged you in any way; for 1 Cort.11:27 says that anyone who partakes of the cup and bread in an unworthy manner is drinking condemnation unto themselves.
Take up the cup and give thanks. Thank the Lord for being the ultimate sacrifice for all mankind’s sins, for taking your place on the cross so that you may have salvation.
Drink from the cup – Amen!
Break the bread and give thanks. Thank the Lord once again for giving Himself up, for His body being broken so that it may be well with you. Isa.53:5 says that by His stripes you were healed; therefore, you walk in divine health as the curse of sickness and disease has been broken from your life.
Break the bread and eat – Amen!
Declaration: ‘Dear Lord God, I thank you for the thoughts you think towards me, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give me an expected end. I declare in the name of Jesus that I will follow Your instructions and the leading of Your Holy Spirit in my life; and in my ministry as a Christian. I walk straight forward wherever the Spirit is about to go, without turning to the right or the left. I reach to the things before me, not looking back; for your grace and mercy is paving a perfect path of peace before me. I therefore declare that I am advancing in every area of my life and ministry to the glorification of the Greater One Who is at work in and through me – in Jesus Name; Hallelujah!’
Have a blessed month of Advancement
Remember that this is our Year of DIVINE RESTORATION
