2012 Year of Manifestation as Sons!

Happy New and Fruitful Year!

I really want to thank God for your life as you read this article knowing that you are one of those who made it across the line into 2012. 2011 is gone! It is gone with its successes and failures, divine appointments and disappointments, stress and distresses, hope and hopelessness. You and I are privileged to step into a new life, new beginning and purpose.

I wish (if I am permitted to use the word “”wish”) I could tell you that 2012 is full of roses but what is a rose without thorns? I wish I could tell you 2012 is your year of Peace and what is peace without war? Peace is not peace until it is established in the midst of crisis and I wish I could tell you that you bank account will be full of money this year as if that is the essence of life and living. We are in the final moment of the Body of Christ on Earth and in this moment, we can see that the political governments of the world, economic structure and even spiritual climate are all coming in alignment for the end time prophetic fulfillment.

As we are witnessing changes all over the world, systems are changing to accommodate these changes. Political leaders are being removed either by democratic process or by war to accommodate the changes too. Economy is changing due to instability in the financial systems forcing changes in government. In return, constitutions of nations are changing to accommodate the changes too that are faced by these nations. Knowing this, how do we then expect the Church to remain the same? How can a change manifest in the world so greatly and the Church be left untouched? This is not possible! I want you to understand that these changes have been in place in the CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST for a while now and it is because some of us have not seen it that we are doing ‘business as usual’. Beloved what type of Church will be on the forefront of these changes in the world? The Church with a sonship spirit and mentality! Sons that know that they are joint heirs with Jesus. Sons who know that as their Father is so are they. At this point, I would like to ask you, who is your DADDY?

I am not into spiritual fatherhood designed only to take from you and never give back – Fathers without access to their sons, but sons of God through the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Welcome to 2012 where sons of God who have understood time and season like never before will begin to act according to their sonship. “Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. But when the fullness of time had come,, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoptions as sons and because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, Abba Father! Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ” Galatians 4:3-7.

As a parent, I still remember when my children went to school. I was so excited! I remembered our son’s parents evening. We were shocked at the work produced by our son. Even though we were so proud of his work but we realised that there he was limited in the things he was taught and exposed to due to his age and ability. Beloved, we have been given a mandate from the Father’s Throne in Heaven with so much grace and enlarge capacity to receive and decode information as sons. A child cannot be given certain information for the family or as legacy; it takes a high level of growing up before a parent can share such responsibility with such Child. Why would you remain as a child under custody of a slave or steward for the rest of your life? Yes I know you are in the custody of the Holy Spirit but that is not the message. Galatians 4:1 teaches us that EVEN though you are Heir but as long as you are a child, you are no different from a slave, though Master of ALL!

The wisdom to sustain you and me for this time is given to sons through Jesus Christ. Your walk with and work for the Lord in 2012 will speak of your position in Him. God knows that we can no longer live like slaves due to our immaturity to handle secret things that belong to our God. “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law” Deuteronomy 29:29. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly but because of Him who subjected it in hope, because the creation itself also will be delivered from bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God” Romans 8:19-21.

The message from God to us is that “it is time for us all to GROW UP and ACT AS HIS REDEEMED SONS”

Nations are defining who their allies are based on their vision. Germany and France defining who is with them on Europe issues, what are you doing spiritually to define who you hang around with in 2012. Some are killing to enforce their religious believes on others and they do not mind dying too as long as their believes are heard and accepted by force! What are you doing or going to do for others to hear and accept your believes which by the way is liberating and provide avenue of personal relationship with their God! By now you should be going through equipping class for the work of your ministry according to Ephesians 4:11-17. I am not saying you leave you church to start ministry without effective calling and release by your Pastor and the Leadership! By now you should know that the world has no stomach for immature leaders how much more Christ for His Body. In the kingdom of darkness, they also takes delight in using mature agent to do their serious assignment how more do you expect the Kingdom of Light!

IT IS TIME FOR SONS TO ARISE!

“For earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labours with pangs together until now” Romans 8:21-22.

For the sake of your world, stand up as sons in 2012!

At least sons are to speak like their father, walk like their father, act like their father. The DNA of the father and son are the same! Manifest this year as a typical son of your Father through Jesus Christ. He said the work I do you shall do. Some of us have not even started. BUT you can start NOW!
