SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: ISAIAH 43:19
Shalom family, our miracles raining weekend went extremely well. Many people were healed of all kinds of sicknesses and diseases; one of the many miracles that moved me is the sister who could not walk due to certain skin disease caused by witchcraft. The sister has been in severe pain for more than a year, the husband had left her for another woman who used to be this sister’s hair dresser. The Man of God (Pastor Alph Lukau) prophesied on her and told her many things concerning her sickness and prayed for her. Immediately after being prayed for, the sister was able to walk, jump and dance; we thank God of our father, Pastor Alph Lukau.
The Man of God said when miracles happen; some people fill it, whereas others do not. However it does not matter whether you fill it or not, you must know that you have received it. Whatever proceeds out of the mouth of God always comes to pass.
The Man of God was preaching on the above scripture, and he said Isaiah was regarded as one of the highest Prophets. Isaiah spoke about the birth of Jesus Christ many years before Jesus was born. Now, how can someone see many years in the future? This indicates that God speaks, he is prophetic. Whatever stands against the prophetic stands against God! He was a Prophet of God and through him God spoke to the nations. After the death of King Uzziah, Isaiah took the step to have deep intimacy with the Lord. A preacher who did not have a deep encounter with God will not go far with God. To have a deep encounter with God means to have a relationship with God, which keeps on growing. Moses’ ministry changed when he encountered the burning bush. Jacob’s ministry also changed when he had an encounter with God, in his dream, he saw the angels ascending and descending on stairway, resting on the earth.
Isaiah would speak on behalf of God, a Prophet is a man taken over by God, and everything he says is taken over. If he jokingly blesses you, you are blessed. Everything about the prophet is prophetic. Every time a Prophet has a need is because someone has the same need. His need is not a really a need, but it is an opportunity for your blessing. The Shunamite woman satisfied the needs of the Prophet and God blessed her. That is why you must mind how you treat the Prophet, when you bless him, blessings will come to you. God says those who bless you, I will bless. I will curse those who curse you. If you see weakness in the life of a Prophet, leave him alone. He sits in the counsel of God, and he speaks the oracles of God. That is why controversies followed most of the Prophets. Some were stoned.
Sometimes it looks like what they are saying is contradicting, but the truth is, there is no contradiction at all. God said “Preach naked,” that was contradicting in the eyes of man, but it was not. Moses told the Israelites not to marry the foreigners yet he had married the foreigner. Abraham lied, saying that Sarah is his sister, King Abimelech took her as his wife but the moment the King Abimelek tried to be intimate with Sarah, God said “you are as good as dead because of the woman you have taken; she is a married woman.” Though Abraham was wrong, God was on his side. He said to King Abimelech, “I know you did this with a clear conscience…. That is why I did not let you touch her… now return the man’s wife because he is a Prophet.” The bible says “touch not my anointed one, do him no harm.” There are people who hurt themselves because of standing against the Prophets of God.
“Behold, I will do a new thing” God is about to do a new thing in your life. “Now it shall spring forth.” God is about to do something so huge that you will not be able to handle. It will keep the devil wondering. He will ask himself a question and say, how did this happen? “Do you not perceive it?” Family, what God is about to do in your life will be so evident that everyone will see it. All you need to do is to remove your umbrella so that you can be wet with the miracles of the living God. “Shall you not know it?” God is so good. You shall celebrate success in your life, where God is taking us will blow people’s minds. You will look at yourself in the mirror and say, is this me?
God says, “I will even make a way in the wilderness.” When you look at your situation, there is no way this would have happened. Beloved, the ways of God are not our ways. God fulfils his promises in your life. He is the way Maker. One man with God is majority. Poverty, sickness, etc., will no more be mentioned in your father’s house. God speaks big all the time. The bible says that in heaven, the roads are paved with gold. “I will make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” God is about to change your environment. Because of drought, we see the deserts, but because of the river, the drought becomes wet. May Cape Town receive rivers in Jesus Name. May it rain again in Cape Town; we stand against water crisis in Cape Town. We cancel the plans of the enemy concerning Cape Town. Family, if you remove your umbrella, you will surely receive your miracles.
