Entering into our Promised Land; 2017, The year of experiencing the sweetness of Honey.
Dr Toyin Ogundipe.
This is a revelation of God's End-times plan for the Church. It's our time of manifesting God's Glory and walking in the fullness of His Power. It's our season of Harvest, Victory, and entering into the promised land where we experience Sweetness, Abundance, and total Freedom.
"It's the year of Honey" (Prophet Shepherd Bushiri).
The Promised Land (Canaan)
Canaan represents God's best and promises to his children. It's a land filled with plenty, where we know no lack. This is God's calendar to prosper the church like never before. It's the beginning of the end point of the transitioning phase. Men live in abundance and the Glory of God is manifest. It's the time of having more than enough, living in continual victory and His Blessing. This season represents the time where there is abundance of all that God represents, and men operate in total freedom to serve him. It's a period of Joy characterized by Sweetness, Freedom, and Abundance.
Sweetness: to enjoy the goodness of the land. To partake of the sweetness of our Lord. Honey provides sweetness in our lives. It shall be a year of Healing and Preservation for the saints.
“A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey;”Deuteronomy 8:8 KJV
“If the Lord delights in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.”Numbers 14:8 KJV
“And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.” Numbers 13:27 KJV
“That I may perform the oath which I have sworn unto your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as it is this day. Then answered I, and said, So be it, O Lord.” Jeremiah 11:5 KJV
“And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.”
Exodus 3:8 KJV
Freedom: from the snare of sin, poverty and sickness. We are delivered to serve God with our whole heart
“But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.” Obadiah 1:17 KJV
“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.” Joel 2:32 KJV
Abundance: To live in plenty, having more than enough. No lack or poverty. State of unlimited resources
“Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.” Psalms 65:11 KJV
“Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.” Isaiah 60:5 KJV
“They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.” Psalms 36:8 KJV
“Moreover he provided him cities, and possessions of flocks and herds in abundance: for God had given him substance very much.” 2 Chronicles 32:29 KJV
No more intimidation! No more Fear! The children of God are possessing their possession. The system of the world is subdued and overtaken by the kingdom of light. It's our year of sweetness where Honey is produced. Those that belong to God enjoy and partake of the sweetness of the land. It's a year that has never existed before. A year of Harvest! A year of Joy! An abundant life. We showpiece the Glory of God. It's the time of the Greater Glory. The beauty of God is made manifest. We display his goodness. We are epitome of his Glory and the Blessing of God is obvious in our lives. Amen
The land of Egypt (Bondage)
This is the state the Church used to be in (oppression, bondage, slavery, poverty, sorrow, hardship, confusion, tocture e.t.c) before her deliverance. The Lion of Judah has released a roar against all evils in the lives of men, and there has been a massive rescuing of souls from the hand of the enemy. The bondage and oppression once experienced by the children of God have been dealt with. The church is enjoying total deliverance and learning to walk in their new-found freedom. We are marching forward as we transition into our Promised Land; A place of Abundance, Sweetness, and Freedom.
“And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites. Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.” Exodus 3:7-10 KJV
The land of Egypt represents the life of bondage and slavery. It is a season where men are subject to oppression by the devil. There is increased evil operation in an atmosphere of excessive darkness and confusion. It represents a place where men experience high level of Fear, Pain and intimidation. They become enslaved and restricted to serve God fearlessly. It's the land of lack and poverty, also an absence of God's Glory. This phase represents the state where many children of God used to be, and have been delivered from. It's a phase of highest demonic influence affecting the economic and political systems of the world. The ministry of the devil as the killer, the thief, and the destroyer is highly operational in this period. The devil suppresses and places people under oppression.
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 KJV
Everything evil comes from the devil. The god, and the spirit that controls the earth is the devil. The spirit of Pharaoh controls the world system. The economic and political systems of this world are held under the leadership of the Pharaohic spirit. Men are restricted to serve God without restraint. The spirit of evil one is evident in the operations of the world.
The origin of evil
God created man (Adam) to have dominion over the earth and all that is in it.
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:28 KJV
The devil came and tempted man to disobey God. He created doubt (unbelief) in the heart of man and persuaded him to commit the sin of lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh and the pride of life.
“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food (lust of the flesh), and that it was pleasant to the eyes (lust of the eyes), and a tree to be desired to make one wise (pride of life), she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat." Genesis 3:1-6 KJV
When man fell, he handed over the authority of this world to Satan who then became the god of this world. Satan became the controller of the world system ever since.
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV
“And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.” Luke 4:6 KJV
Jesus came to redeem man from destruction. He gave the key and the power to overcome the world. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and personal savior, we receive Power (Exousia) to destroy the works of the enemy over our world. We are given the authority to seize back what is ours in Christ Jesus, and subdue the enemy under our feet. We regain the power to rule, dominate, replenish and subdue the earth. We take back our right as the god of this world by the authority we have through the name of Jesus. Hallelujah!
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” Matthew 28:18 KJV.
Spiritual Warfare: Arise and take back!!
The time of oppression and intimidation is far spent. The children of God are awakened to be delivered from the hand of the evil one. Deliverance is the children's meat. Jesus paid the price to set us free. We need to take our stand and allow the Spirit of God to liberate us. We are let go that we may serve God.
“And the Lord spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me.”Exodus 8:1 KJV
God has sent a deliverer; He also anoints his servants to deliver men from the oppression of the evil one. Men have been, and are being set free. The church of God is marching on and the gates of hell are in confusion. We are transitioning into our promised land. We are at the very end of the route towards our place of Harvest. It's time to be set free. Take on the whole armor of God. Get ready to seize back what is yours in Jesus name. Put on your whole armor. It's time we take back what is ours! It's time to let go! . We have been mandated to be released. It's time to step into the promised land
Tools of Warfare:
“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” Ephesians 6:13-18 KJV
(2) The Word of God
(5)The shield of Faith
(7)The gospel of Christ
Pray all manners of prayers in the Spirit. Praying in tongues is an effective tool used in spiritual warfare. Stand your ground by declaring the word of God. Use the shield of Faith to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one. Walk in the truth of righteousness and preach the gospel of Christ.
