SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: MATTHEW 20:16
Good day beloved family. What a wonderful conference we had last week! Surely the Lord has been faithful to Alleluia Ministries. We have experienced a shift in every area of our lives. Things have changed and nothing will ever remain the same. You have to learn to challenge your faith. It is easy to say something will manifest in my life some days. “Some days” may be no day at all. You must believe God for a miracle that will manifest now. Jesus said to Martha, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha, the sister of Lazaraus, said to Jesus, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” And Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.” –John 11:23 – John 11:25. Believing God for many years is good, but you can believe God for now.
The Man of God said the scripture above is a prophecy from Jesus, for now. Jesus told a parable, about a man who went out to hire people to come and work in his vine yard. He hired some in the morning, some on the third hour, some on the sixth hour, some on the ninth hour and finally on the eleventh hour. When the evening came he decided to pay his workers. According to the parable, the last to come to work were the first to be paid. Every worker received the same amount as everyone else. Those that came first began to complain because they had thought those who came last would receive less. God has a way of rewarding His people.
You might have been crying for too long. The time you have taken to sow seed, and work hard, is about to be rewarded. Many times you might have been hit by many kinds of disappointments. In the process you might have been rejected and ejected. You kept looking up saying, Lord where are you? It probably seemed like God had forsaken you and the enemy had the upper hand. But you must know that God has a way of rewarding His people. What God is bringing your way will cause people to talk; they will notice you. It is your pay day and your pay day is your REAPING AND REWARD. When God rewards somebody nothing about him remains the same.
The blessing of the eleventh hour caused others to envy those that came last. Sometimes the enemy launches attacks on you simply because the goodness of God towards you is just too much. They thought that you would not make it; that you would stumble and fall. When your time comes it is your time. They can come against you in one way, but they shall be scattered in seven different ways. A thousand may fall on your side, ten thousand on your right hand. It shall not come near you; with your eyes only shall you see the reward of the wicked. When God manifests His favour, some will find it unfair. But for your blessing God will not consult a committee.
Jesus said the last will be the first and the first will be the last. What used to be the last is about to be known as the first. When God is blessing you, He is judging your enemies. For your blessing to come judgement must first come. When God is dealing with your enemies in His hands, for He says vengeance is mine. God is shifting and repositioning you.
