Gracious Father, we thank You for Who You are. Faithful one hallow be Thy Name, we fall down before Your Throne and we sing Holy Holy Holy with the four and twenty elders and we say along with them Thou are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all thngs, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Beloved, I count a indeed a great privilege be alive and well in the land of the living. Each day we sleeps and the Lord wakes us up in the morning, we need to offer Him thanks from the deep of heart for the Lord sustains us (Ps 3:5) and He alone ensures our goings. Praise the Lord! Somebody… Alleluia.

A new month is ahead of us beloved, let us once again thank the Lord for all He did for us all through last month,  the Lord was good to us, He lead us all through every valley and hills we come encountered with His Mighty Hand. He sustained and healed us from all our infirmities. He provided and protected us from the evil schemes of the wicked. He preserved our life. Praise be the Name of the Lord.

Through the mercy and grace of God, dearly beloved, we are glad to welcome you to the month of February “our month of Great Encounters” (Ezek 36:26). Are you R-E–A—D—-Y….! Is promising to be great indeed as the Lord will indeed do what is good and great for us. He will change all that need to be changed in your life and situation.  If the Lord promise a “New heart and a New Spirit” the same Lord is promising someone a new kidney, a new liver, a new blood, a new eyes, a new womb, a new car, a new house, a new business, whatever be your own case name and claim it as our Father is not limited or bound, as He promising to one of His son or daughter, so He is promising to another who keyed into the same promises. Praise the Lord.

He is a God of all Possibilities. He never change and will never fail. For out of His Fullness, ours come forth. Come along with me for more understanding:

 

“And of his fulness have all we received.” John 1:16

 

These words tell us that there is a fulness in Christ. There is a fulness of essential Deity, for “in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead.” There is a fulness of perfect manhood, for in Him, bodily, that Godhead was revealed. There is a fulness of atoning efficacy in His blood, for “the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanseth us from all sin.

“There is a fulness of justifying righteousness in His life, for “there is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.” There is a fulness of divine prevalence in His plea, for “He is able to save to the uttermost them that come unto God by Him; seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.

“There is a fulness of victory in His death, for through death He destroyed him that had the power of death, that is the devil. There is a fulness of efficacy in His resurrection from the dead, for by it “we are begotten again unto a lively hope.” There is a fullness of triumph in His ascension, for “when He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and received gifts for men.

“There is a fulness of blessings of every sort and shape; a fulness of grace to pardon, of grace to regenerate, of grace to sanctify, of grace to preserve, and of grace to perfect. There is a fulness at all times; a fulness of comfort in affliction; a fulness of guidance in prosperity. A fulness of every divine attribute, of wisdom, of power, of love; a fulness which it were impossible to survey, much less to explore. “It pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell.

“Oh, what a fulness must this be of which all receive! Fulness, indeed, must there be when the stream is always flowing, and yet the well springs up as free, as rich, as full as ever. Come, believer, and get all thy need supplied; ask largely, and thou shalt receive largely, for this “fulness” is inexhaustible, and is treasured up where all the needy may reach it, even in Jesus, Immanuel—God with us.

 Did you read it yourself, everything you will ever need or desire is in Him in fulness. So don’t slack to ask for He is ever willing to give.

When the Lord promised you a new heart and a new Spirit, He knew that lie the seat of power of every individual. It is what make you a person. You cannot exists outside these two. Any individual who operates outside these can never function properly. A new heart and a new Spirit enables you to do only those things that are appealing to God alone. It is our seat of power, come and see how our mother Mary made use of hers, and that guaranteed her success in her journey of life:

“But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.” Luke 2:19

There was an exercise, on the part of this blessed woman, of three powers of her being: her memory—she kept all these things; her affections—she kept them in her heart; her intellect—she pondered them; so that memory, affection, and understanding, were all exercised about the things which she had heard.

Beloved, remember what you have heard of your Lord Jesus, and what He has done for you; make your heart the golden pot of manna to preserve the memorial of the heavenly bread whereon you have fed in days gone by. Let your memory treasure up everything about Christ which you have either felt, or known, or believed, and then let your fond affections hold Him fast for evermore.

Love the person of your Lord! Bring forth the alabaster box of your heart, even though it be broken, and let all the precious ointment of your affection come streaming on His pierced feet. Let your intellect be exercised concerning the Lord Jesus. Meditate upon what you read: stop not at the surface; dive into the depths. Be not as the swallow which toucheth the brook with her wing, but as the fish which penetrates the lowest wave.

Abide with your Lord: let Him not be to you as a wayfaring man, that tarrieth for a night, but constrain Him, saying, “Abide with us, for the day is far spent.” Hold Him, and do not let Him go.

The word “ponder,” means to weigh. Make ready the balances of judgment. Oh, but where are the scales that can weigh the Lord Christ? “He taketh up the isles as a very little thing:”—who shall take Him up? “He weigheth the mountains in scales”—in what scales shall we weigh Him?

Be it so, if your understanding cannot comprehend, let your affections apprehend; and if your spirit cannot compass the Lord Jesus in the grasp of understanding, let it embrace Him in the arms of affection.

Either of these three virtues beloved, will guarantee a great encounter with your Maker this wonderful month of the Lord. Are poise to receive? Please note that this promise from the Lord “Great Encounter” is for only those who are certified that they have given their lives to Christ. So if you are yet to do so, please click here to do so now!

Now you have accepted the Lord Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour, the Holy Spirit hereby welcomes you special to the banqueting table of “Great Encounter” with the Lord. Come, dine and wine with your Maker, the Creator of heaven and earth!!!!!!!!!!!! Praise the Lord, somebody!!!!!!!!!!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
