A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – March 2021 (Dose of Prophecy)

It is written that life and death are in the power of the tongue.

It is also written that pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and health to the bones.

Therefore choose life giving words that come from Him and proclaim them.

The words of the Lord are spirit and life to those who find them and medicine to all flesh

So He says: ‘Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.’ Psalms 81:10

Ask God to fill your mouth with prophetic words that cater to the needs of people including yourself and usher in the Kingdom of God.

As you praise Him, He will inhabit your praises (Psalms 22:3).
And as you release prophetic words to encourage, exhort, comfort and build others, it will bless others and yourself as well.

Let gratitude that is vocal be your attitude. Has He not said, that in everything give thanks to Him including good and bad occurrences? This will release further blessings to you.

Even in the temporal sense appreciating someone for a past favour paves the way for more. Therefore we need to comfort and edify each other (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

The Lord waits for us to release that miracle from our mouth.

Be blessed and highly favoured!

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – February 2021 (Dose of Prophecy)

He who dwells in the Shelter of the Most-High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty
Psalms 91:1

The God who sheltered His people in biblical days will not stop now.

He sheltered Noah, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Naomi, Elijah, Daniel, Apostle Paul and so on will He not shelter you?

When you face times and you chase your seemingly impossible dream, remember tough times do not last but tough people do, even your worries can be temporary if you do not pay attention to them, for has it not been written – ‘In nothing be anxious…’

At such moments remind yourself of God did for you in the past – Recall, Replay, O victorious one and give God the glory, for better times are ahead.

Didn’t Moses tell the people of Israel when they were prone to get discouraged – “… remember well what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt”
Deuteronomy 7:17-18, so must we.

When faced with obstacles on your way to reach your highest potential, recall, replay your past major victories

‘The things we see are temporal, but the things we can’t see are eternal.’

Be not discouraged at what you see, it is not permanent. God is working in all things for your good. The best is yet to come.

Be blessed and highly favoured!

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – January 2021 (Dose of Prophecy)

I hear the Lord saying:

Get ready, I am all of a sudden changing things in your life.

Get ready for new locations at the right time. Your present place is not permanent and too small for you.

Expansion, with explosive blessings approaching inclusive of financial gains.

You have not seen my explosive blessings yet

unlimited immeasurable surpassing greatness of God’s favour. (Ephesians 2:7)

Unexpected inheritance to you from a family member…

Be blessed and highly favoured to you who fear the Lord and walk in His ways.

2021 Prophecy — Prophet Tony Mathias

The following is the Prophet’s interpretation and sensing in the spirit – open to the Guild of Prophets for confirmation or contradiction.

Happy New Year 2021!

Year of the Turnaround New Beginnings!

The Lord says: ‘Can I not?’
‘I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is anything too difficult for Me?’ Jeremiah 32:27

The Spirit says: I am turning things around quickly.

The last year went spinning with global impact during the pandemic causing social, economic, political disruption, adversely affecting livelihoods and health, some even turning away from the faith.

But this new year is the year of the ‘reverse spin,’ where things begin to normalize.

It may seem like things are going to worsen, the storm too dark and strong, and on your own you are done.

Fear not God is with you – the storm-stiller, the fire-quencher, the giant-slayer, who shuts the mouth of lions.

Fear not you who serve the El Shaddai, you will have more than enough. Divine order is being established.

Spinning finally stops, clarity resumes and God’s plan and purpose comes to pass. Hold fast to your faith without wavering.

The Lord is breathing life into dreams He gave you which seem dead, while you picture yourself in them as alive calling them forth as though they already existed and they will be fulfilled.

There is going to be an increase of divine revelations.

The supernatural is going to become more and more a natural occurrence.

The God of suddenly’s is going to manifest Himself to restore to you what you have lost.

The Lord has not forgotten you. He is the God who sees.

He has set you apart for a time like this to show the world that He can take care of you, for are you not more important than the birds He takes care of?

At the time of recession for you who fear the Lord, you will have surplus so you can praise the Lord and give Him glory – for He is your provider.

Miracle provision is on the way.

There is going to be a wave of supernatural healing and deliverance miracles from this year onwards, quite a number of them even without the immediate instrumentality of humans, as the people call upon the name of the Lord – He will save, heal, deliver

The Master saysthe works I do you shall do and greater works than these…

There is going to be a great significance in the usage of the word ‘Call.’
As He is so are we in this world.
So call as He called forth miracles!

He who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved healed delivered.

Call unto Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things you know not.

Call forth things that are not as though they already existed.

There is going to come supernatural signs in the atmosphere and sky above and hideous creatures surfacing from within the earth.

Increase in global temperature; cracks in the mountains.

While the revival of God is taking place, there will be a revival of filth and sin.

Sinning will grow worse, but where sin abounds, grace does much more abound

Some noted criminals and underworld gangsters are going to come into repentance and turn to the Lord

There is coming a change in church formation and structure.

Mega Churches will receive opposition to their routine functioning.

Mushrooms of house churches will be formed.

All the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord gradually in this revival season.

There will be continual spiritual warfare – God’s warfare angels will make the scene and especially those of the higher-order to battle and rout out the cohorts of the evil one.

The Lord builds His Church where the gates of hell shall not prevail against.

There will be many visitations of the Lord and His angels, commissioning, mantles, anointings to serve the Lord.

Some of God’s Generals will pass away.

Two Presidents shall pass away and there will be a time of instability at their demise.

God’s faithful ones need to keep ready, walking in the fear of the Lord, serving the Lord with gladness with the ornament of worship.

Jesus is Lord now and forever!

Walk in the fear of the Lord and be blessed and highly favoured!

A blessing extended to all the nations of the earth
God Almighty may Your Kingdom Come and Will be Done!
Jesus Christ Is Lord Now And Forever!

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – October 2020 (Dose of Prophecy)

Miracles of Provision

In the spirit, I see people facing the sea, dipping their feet in the water along with empty baskets.

Little wavelets from the incoming waves come forth to bathe their feet bringing fish along. Some brought single baskets others brought multiple. The people begin to gather and fill their baskets with fish to an over-flowing. Some felt sorry they had not brought more carry – baskets. I sense the fish convey not only salvation but opulence (great wealth).

I am reminded of the widow whose husband died and her sons were to be sold into slavery – she couldn’t pay her bills.

Prophet Elisha asked her what she had. She replied that she had only a small jar of olive oil. So he sent her out to gather vessels to make provision for the increase she was about to miraculously receive.

The oil multiplied, the jars were filled, then the oil stopped flowing because there were no empty vessels left, to contain the oil. Then Elisha told her to sell the oil, pay her bills, and she and her sons could live off the rest.

Her miracle was in her own house. And there is a miracle for you in your house as well.

God will work a miracle with what you have, not with what you don’t have. Give Him what you have. He will multiply it and keep pouring it out to you, as long as you have a place for Him to fill, for these are the days of Elijah – Elisha, mantle – throwing time for the turn-around.

I perceive the Lord saying that for you who fear Him, who are good givers, and who walk in His ways – there is a turn-around coming for you. Do not fear adverse situations confronting you, for there is coming a new beginning, a resuscitation of God-initiated dying or dead dreams.

I hear the Lord saying:

“For you who love me, obey me, fear me, you will experience miraculous acts of provision from Me in the coming days, for I have heard your prayers and seen your tears. I have not forsaken you. You will find your provision coming to you from even least sought for or unlooked places, even from empty purses, cupboards, roadside and so on – Do you know where Peter got the money? –  from the fish’s mouth – for I am the Lord your Provider.

“As you fix your eyes on me you will find your income largely increase even though your pay-cheque or known sources of income are limited, for I have ways that are higher than your ways, and I know how to prosper you, seek My Kingdom first and walk in righteousness

“You shall be sought for by others whom you hardly even know who will bless you. I am the Holy One of Israel and I am unlimited, so do not limit Me. Do not lean unto your own understanding but acknowledge Me in all your ways and I will direct your paths.

“And you see the water touching your feet – be shod with the gospel of peace on a mission to preach the gospel while you continue with your earthly profession, for the gospel must be preached and souls saved and money will be miraculously provided as well for the mission. You will prosper and be blessed.

“I will send some of you to other nations and nationalities inland, overseas with the good news of not only salvation but also how to bring glory to God in the good works you do.

“Let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Be blessed and highly favoured!

– Prophet Tony Mathias

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – September 2020 (Dose of Prophecy)

The Battle for the Crown

This year is the beginning of transition for many, the year of the shift – shift into what? – a Crown Shift!

From, Kingdom of this world and its allegiance to the god of this world who is dethroned – to welcoming the soon coming return of Jesus the King of Glory and His Kingdom.

Crown Him the Lord of Heaven, enthroned in worlds above,
Crown Him the King to Whom is given the wondrous name of Love.
Crown Him with many crowns, as thrones before Him fall;
Crown Him, ye kings, with many crowns, for He is King of all.

From self-destruct to revival; Though there be an apostasy or a great fall away, the backslidden afflicted, storm-tossed, helpless, and lost will return largely due to interceding ones breaking the tempter’s power, for God is greatly concerned about His children and many sinners will be saved as well. Even barren churches will have labour pains and many children. There is coming, an expansion!

We shall overcome! Walk in holiness dear overcomers! Pray! Pray! Pray!

I recall someone prophesying over me a couple of years ago – “There’s a wind coming against you with full force, pushing you backwards, preventing your onward journey. It suddenly turns around you and propels you forward to your assigned destination.” – Yes that’s true it is currently happening in my life, as I am moving on by the tide of the Spirit “…all things work together for good to them that love God, to them, who are -the called, according to his purpose.” Romans 8: 28.

In a similar context, the recent pandemic, a global occurrence crossing international borders, is like a gigantic force, impeding progress, causing first of all a pandemic of fear with questions arising in the minds of public health officials – ‘How deadly is it?’ ‘Can it be contained? ‘When will it be exterminated?’ – followed by panic, pandemonium, fear of the unknown, uncertainty, devastation, collapse of economic activity in its wake of death, destruction, threatening to wreck the fabric of society and more.

Be comforted to know that God has not abandoned us nor His good plans for us. When we are fearful of what is going on and what the future might hold, we need to remember that our ultimate comfort can be found in God’s love and protection.

“Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.” Psalms 57: 1

“Our help is in the Name of the Lord who made the heavens and the earth…”

Our survival instinct even begins to threaten our compassion. So God is calling us to continue in love and compassion, the world needs it and especially those around us.

While keeping to the norms of social distancing and taking care and precautionary measures, we should not forget we are one in the Spirit and should pray for each other – a great opportunity, to change things for the better routing out demons of fear and pursuing our God-given destiny.

Finally, the force or wind of trouble or tempest arrayed against us will be turned in our favour as we rest peacefully in Him the Rock of Ages, propelling us into our God-given destiny. He has the ability to provide rock-solid security for all ages. This current pandemic is reaching some alarming proportions. It’s easy to get caught in fear. But if we are walking with the Lord, many Scriptures promise us that He is with us and will take care of us. We are repeatedly told not to be afraid.

‘Rock of Ages cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee.’

It has been said – “When you run alone, you run a race. When you run with God, you run by grace.” His grace is sufficient for you.

One Year Recap of the Prophet’s Pen (Synopsis August 2019 – July 2020)

AUGUST 2019
Disciples of Jesus, there’s a storm coming – get in the boat. God the Storm-Stiller says fear not, He will handle the storm, keep us afloat, get us safely to the other side and chase the enemy (evil one) away who is in the storm. He says, He is making us overcomers through His Word, while we are in the midst of the storm, to thrive beyond the storm not just survive, with a promise of its cessation.

(Current Pandemic, sensed in August 2019?)

SEPTEMBER 2019
God is leading you through the open door – new beginnings to avail of His secrets and plans in line with His destiny for you, to a world of opportunities, unexpected doors, new revelations, new seasons of change, doors of hope, doors of ministry, secrets galore. The door He shuts, quit banging on, enter the one He opened for you with an angel on assignment to help create what you were designed for –  to serve people in love He sends across your path and be a blessing to them.

OCTOBER 2019
A right time for everything on earth, an opportune time to do things – a right time to reap or plant –discern! Discern the times for you and the seasons. Though the sorrows may last for a night, joy comes in the morning! God keeps watch over your weeping. Your due time has arrived – the hour of turnaround.


NOVEMBER 2019
Jesus is coming soon are you ready? God is calling His people to fulfil the Greatest Commandment to love and Great Commission to make disciples. He’s calling for a reckoning and a rewarding! He is calling His Generals as back-up, to the Joshua Generation that is being led from revelation to righteous revolution endowed with divine authority, anointing and strategic battle plans ahead.

DECEMBER 2019
God is calling the Joshua Generation to intimacy with Him. He is releasing supernatural anointing over them for the task ahead as forerunners going beyond the veil into the realms of heaven and coming back with a good report drawing others in. There’s going to be a multitasking and acceleration. The Spirit of God is giving new direction and fresh vision blowing their spiritual enemy away as they worship.


JANUARY 2020

Dead dreams are being resurrected, this is the time of ‘latter end increase.’ He will restore to you the years the locusts have eaten – joyful returns; seemingly impossible coming to pass. You will receive more than you have asked for with abiding peace to enable you to glorify the Lord.

 

FEBRUARY 2020
God says He will fill us with wisdom the principal thing in all affairs of life if we but ask. He will cause us to prophesy His Word with wisdom; declare His goodness in the land of the living. He has given us authority over all the power of the evil one; to pull down strongholds; bring down territorial spirits and so on but that will not do until we use our authority. That as we walk in His ways, we will walk in His favour and reach our destination.

 

MARCH 2020
He says – He has given us a spirit of wisdom and revelation, insight into mysteries and secrets by knowing Him through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, that includes sudden understanding and perception of situations, or mysteries. And the power to decree what He has declared and see it come to pass through intimacy.


APRIL 2020

While we are in the ‘Eye of the Storm,’ during this stressful period of time (pandemic), the Lord says: He will ‘guard and guide’ us to manoeuvre peacefully; we have nothing to fear, He is in our boat. All we need to do is acknowledge Him in all our ways, commune with Him in the Secret Place. Then He will write letters to us in the Spirit which will be despatched by His faithful angels into our letter-boxes (spirit man) to read, ponder and respond – keeping us safe from destiny–Killers.

 

MAY 2020
The Lord says: This is the appropriate season, appointed time for permitting His judgment of the global-pandemic since wickedness is reigning paramount having replaced justice. But there will be a quick exit of this virus for the sake of His very own who cry out to Him. After the storm will come the calm – and a worldwide much-awaited global great awakening revival which the prophets have foretold. There is going to be a great hunger for hearing the voice of God, and the prophetic. He says, He will manifest His presence with visitations inside locked doors.

 

JUNE 2020
Waiting always seems a trial of patience. But God works in all circumstances, situations for the good of those who love, trust and acknowledge Him not leaning on to their own understanding or self-reliance. Though sorrow may last for the night, joy comes in the morning. And this shall be followed by the greatest revival of all – dancing in His glory.

 

JULY 2020
There are people in our days as have been in the past who have despised ‘Prophecy and the Prophet.’ And now there is a turn-around a ‘growing interest’ in Bible prophecy amid the pandemic from different strata of life including sceptics. The time of reckoning and God’s judgment has arrived in the Church as well as the world. God says – Repent and Love not the world nor the things of this world. Social distancing is necessary, relational distancing is not. Though the Christian, has the assurance of salvation and hope of eternity because of the Blood of Christ shed on the cross for us. It is time to prepare to meet our God and end play – Church.

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – August 2020 (Dose of Prophecy)

I recall a vision I had of an ‘Angel in Armour’ dragging a round-headed tentacled creature from the sea, cutting off its head and parading it in triumph.

This could represent the present Virus engulfing the world coming from a literal sea or through a sea of people.

The permission for its existence and eradication through Godly interference could be a part of God’s move and end time plan.

After the storm comes the calm.

We pray for better days ahead soon.

I sense, God is turning the arms of the clock so that we complete what we started in His Will but abandoned.

Dead dreams are being resurrected.

During this time of pandemic seclusion God is realigning partially jumbled, partially obscured blue prints to His original intent.

Time spent with the Lord is never a waste especially during this time of seclusion.

It is an eye-opener for a ‘Mary-Martha’ episode, from busy-ness to focusing on His business.

 

Fear not at what’s happening.
It’s all under control

Orchestrated by Me in ways that escape understanding
Cease after having taken its toll

Numbers may seem astronomical
Most assuredly shall fall

With hope in Me unshaken
Cause an unwinding downward spiral after all

The clouds are shifting darkness dispelled.
The Sun is shifting and all is well

Look back and you can tell.
Lessons learned have worked out well

Curtains are parting, a new panorama makes its debut

For you My choice ones entrusting.
That will gladden your hearts and make it all pleasing

Cease from worry and fear and be at peace.
Trust in Me and all this uproar will cease.

Be Blessed And Highly Favoured!

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – July 2020 (Dose of Prophecy)

There are people in our days as have been in the past who have despised Prophecy and the Prophet.’

Amazingly, God works in all things for good even as He is doing it during this current pandemic.

Yes, in fact, one of the ways He is working is to bring a ‘growing interest’ in Bible prophecy amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Sceptics who treated with disdain the season of the end times are now wondering whether, after all, it is true.

Even pastors who thought otherwise are beginning to view biblical end-times prophecies as being showcased in current global events.

The time of reckoning and God’s judgment has arrived in the Church as well as the world – death, desperation, violence, locked-in and locked-out, famine, starvation, waves of locusts, people fleeing to safer locations…these are perilous times taking a toll on many.

We are aware of what is happening with the coronavirus pandemic intensifying and the virus spreading – labour shortage to manufacture, deliver and unpack groceries in stores; supermarkets and distribution facilities facing a difficult choice to keep shelves stocked with essentials and workers safe.

In the coming days, we might witness truck drivers refusing to drive into highly-infected zones, to deliver food, fuel, medicine and other supplies. Where are we heading?

What is God saying to us during this pandemic:
Repent and Love not the world nor the things of this world.

He is using it to persuade us to change the way we treat one another and all He has created.

Though social distancing is necessary, relational distancing is not.

Let’s build a relational bridge when the virus wants to create a social drain.

As bad as pandemics are, hell will be worse.

The Christian, however, has the assurance of salvation and the hope of eternity because of the blood of Christ shed on the cross for us.

It is time to prepare to meet our God and end play – Church.

As followers of Jesus in 2020 will we be those who show and share the love of Jesus in the midst of this now-growing crisis?

LET OUR WALK MATCH OUR TALK — PROPHET TONY MATHIAS

Someone said – I’m doing pretty good under the circumstances.

Another said: – “I believe circumstances are like the mattress of a bed. You’re supposed to be over not under.” – Yes, we live in an age of adversity with all kinds of circumstances swirling around disturbing and depressing.

Job said: “Man born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble.” Job 14: 1

Jesus said: “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Only Jesus can turn the tide and calm the angry sea and make a way where there is no way! John 16: 33

Paul said amidst his trials, negative situations, adversity said: ‘…thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ.’ 2 Corinthians 2: 14

Be encouraged we shall prevail and overcome. For He has called us heirs, joint-heirs and overcomers.

Judgment has begun with the house of the Lord!
Jesus is coming soon are we ready?

Children, let us not love with words but with action and truth
1 John 3: 18

Talk is cheap: “Actions speak louder than words.” ‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

Those in Leadership who seek minimum accountability for themselves and demand accountability from others and get away with it. ‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

Those in Leadership who see almost everyone else as inferior to themselves criticizing other leaders while building their own-selves up. ‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

Those in Leadership who show favouritism to a favoured few marginalizing the rest – ‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

Those in Leadership who lie, saying one thing to some, but different things to others. – ‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

Those in Leadership who seek to dismiss or marginalize people seeing them as projects, not God’s people that need mentoring and developing. Using them as a means to their ends, – ‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

Those in Leadership who are manipulative, lack transparency to get their way – who marginalize and victimize those that disagree with them ‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

Those in Leadership who surround themselves with ‘yes men.’ ‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

Those in Leadership who pile burdens on people’s shoulders and won’t lift a finger to help. Matthew 23: 14– ‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. 1 John 4: 20
‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

Let us show our love to our family, friends, brothers and sisters in Christ by the way we live and what we do for each other – ‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

Many make promises but seldom keep them. God always keeps His Word so should we. Jeremiah 1: 12. He holds us accountable for breaking or promises
‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

Many Christians do not walk with honesty and integrity doing the right thing, even when nobody is watching. ‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

If someone walked out of a store with an article and forgot to pay for it, he should go back and pay for it if he is a person of integrity.

You say you will come to church on time and reach late or don’t show up.

You say, I’ll meet you at the station at a certain time and you don’t show up.

You say: I will call you back tomorrow.” – You don’t call back or call much later with excuses – You lied!

Broken promises lead to broken trust, broken relationships.

A broken promise is a sin! God hates it!

How can you be trusted if you don’t keep your word? ‘Let Our Walk Match Our Talk.’

If God doesn’t keep his word He is no good! But He always keeps his word.

If you don’t keep our word we are no good! You are as good or as bad as your word.
You are identified by your words!

When people of the world look at you as a Christian do they find the difference?
If you keep your word people will respect you and follow your lead. Matthew 5: 37

Are Christians guilty of lying? – Very much!

What happens when people make it a habit to lie? – Lake of Fire Revelation 21: 8.

Is there hope? Yes! Repent!
Ask God to help you keep your word; be determined to keep your word. When circumstances are out of control – apologize, make facts known in advance.

Let me end with this scriptural reference:
Psalm 15: 2-6

He who walks with integrity and strength of character, and works righteousness, and speaks and holds truth in his heart.

He does not slander with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbour, nor takes up a reproach against his friend;

In his eyes an evil person is despised; But he honours those who fear the LORD He keeps his word even to his own disadvantage and does not change it for his own benefit]; He does not put out his money at interest [to a fellow Israelite],
And does not take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.

So help us, dear God, to walk in integrity and in the fear of You.

Let Our Walk Match Our Talk in Jesus’ Name!

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – June 2020 (Dose of Prophecy)

Waiting always seems a trial of patience.

But God works in all circumstances, situations and waiting period for the good of those who love, trust and acknowledge Him not leaning on to their own understanding or self-reliance.

I hear Him say – “While you wait for your miracle take time to ponder over my promises to you declaring and decreeing them as your present reality. I am holding your hand – Fear not I will help you.”

I see you sitting on an open field crying – the sun is overshadowed by a dark cloud and the shadow is falling on you. The Lord says to you – “Fear not, the darkness is passing away and I’m wiping away your tears.”

“There will be an end to this pandemic which I have permitted in My overall plans – you will go out, and leap like calves of the stall because you revere My Name.” –

Though sorrow may last for the night, joy comes in the morning. And this shall be followed by the greatest revival of all – dancing in His glory.

IS YOUR ROOM BIG ENOUGH FOR BLESSING? — PROPHET TONY MATHIAS

“Now Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep {me} from harm that {it} may not pain me!” And God granted him what he requested.” 1 Chronicles 4: 10

Many are familiar with the prayer of ‘Jabez.’ They practice it but are unsuccessful since they have not understood the principle behind it. They need to practice the principle.

And what is the principle? – Preparation Precedes Blessing.

“This is what the Lord says: ‘Dig ditches all over this dry stream bed. Even though you will not see any rain or wind, this stream bed will be filled with water, and you, and your livestock and your pack animals will have plenty to drink”…The next morning at the time of the morning sacrifice water came flowing from the direction of Edom and covered the ground. 2 Kings 3: 16-17, 20

– No water until the ditches were dug!

Then he said: “Go to your neighbours and borrow as many empty jars as you can,” Elisha told her. Then you and your sons go into the house, close the door, and start pouring oil into the jars. Set each one aside as soon as it is full…When they had filled all the jars, she asked if there were any more, “That was the last one,” one of her sons answered. And the olive oil stopped flowing. 2 Kings 4: 3-4, 6

– No multiplication of oil, until the vessels were gathered!

From 1 Chronicles 4: 10 we can glean two important ingredients to a supernatural life of abundance –‘Asking and Ability.’ We need to petition (ask) God for His blessing and avail of His ability (grace) to handle them just like Jabez did for he knew he was unable to handle them in the natural and God granted him his request.

God blesses those who have prepared themselves to be blessed. Preparing for your blessings speaks of your faith-in-action. God never gives you something you are not ready for. You may have asked God to pour out abundant blessing but find you only have a cup full. Do you have the capacity to handle or properly manage those blessings? If God gave you what you asked for how much of it would be wasted? You can’t build a barn big enough to hold God blessings. Only God knows the measure and dependability of that container needed to possess His blessings and integrity. And you are that container. On the other hand, many may be preparing to be blessed to be a blessing but have forgotten God in their preparation.

God told Abraham that He was going to multiply and bless him abundantly and for that to happen God told him to move away from his family to a place He would show him. The reason why he had to move was to get rid of pagan influences and make room for God’s blessing. God blessed Abraham but also gave him the means and ability to
possess and care for his blessing.

Have you asked God for anything in life? Do you believe He will answer you? Have you made sufficient preparation in line with your request including Him in your preparations?

Believe God will bless you. Be prepared for your blessing before they manifest.

A Word From The Prophet’s Pen – May 2020 (Dose of Prophecy)

I sense the Lord saying – This is the appropriate season, the appointed time for permitting My judgment of the global-pandemic since wickedness is reigning paramount having replaced justice.

I hear Him saying – “I have heard the outcry of earth’s citizens of its wickedness as in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, and as in the days of Noah, enough to allow judgment, and I am constrained to bring it to full bloom because of the cry of my faithful prayer warriors and so there is going to be a quick exit of this virus for the sake of my very own – and after the storm will come the calm.”

And with the calm comes another bloom – All the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea – and the words of the prophets worldwide shall usher in the much-awaited global great awakening revival. There is going to be a great hunger for hearing the voice of God, and the prophetic.

People will be woken up very early in the morning with a desire to pray.

Rejoice and be glad Oh ye righteous and shout for joy all ye that are upright in heart.

He says, He will manifest His presence and there shall be visitations inside locked doors to those who have made him their dwelling place amidst suffering, loss, uncertainties – that nothing will lock him out, neither walls or closed doors just like when he appeared to his disciples huddled together in seclusion, scared, confused, and anxious about their future – that this lockdown would itself become a doorway to step into God’s presence.

Yes, He says: “I will manifest my presence and there shall be visitations within locked doors accompanied with my peace and questions of uncertainty will vanish.”

He says, that because we believe in Him, a spring forms within us providing us with life-giving water and eternal life and streams flowing continually from our innermost being in benediction and blessing to others.

He says that there is one thing that would limit the flowing out, the release of His tangible presence and that is the mouth-gate.

He says: “I am the LORD thy God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, the proverbial ‘house of bondage,’ on the way to your promised land so open wide your mouth and I will fill it with my words and my presence.”

He says: “Will you not stir me up and unlock my presence with your lips to a world that awaits my arrival?”

He says – Preach repentance and be quick to repent, believe and forgive!

I sense the Lord saying: Here comes the heavenly invasion, next the worldwide tsunami of My glorious presence – then the end shall come, the snatching-away, up, up and away into the glorious realms of heaven.

Be Blessed and Highly Favored!

STIR UP YOUR GIFT — Prophet Tony Mathias

2 Timothy 1: 6. “…I remind you to stir up the gift of God in you.”
God gave you a gift. You need to discover it and stir it up. No one else can do it for you. You must do it yourself.

Proverbs 17: 8. “A gift is like a precious stone in the eyes of the one who has it – wherever it turns it prospers.”

When you use your gift it will prosper you.

Many work for money which is an inferior reason. They need to work for the vision within them. Why be jealous of the gifts of others, stir up your own.

God used people who may be termed as ‘old eagles’ – Abraham & Sarah; Elizabeth & Zechariah; Wigglesworth beyond their retirement age – they were ‘retired and re-fired.’

You stir up your gift by discovering it, developing it and using it. Your gift will make you young again brimming with vitality and health. You will cease talking about dying and start talking about living.

Ecclesiastes 9: 10. “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…”

Proverbs 18:16. “A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.”

God intended you to be super-normal not get lost in the crowd. Among 6 billion on this planet earth no two individuals are alike. God created all originals, but we continue to be imitators, copying others trying to fit in and not stand-out. But do not forget you are unique God’s workmanship! – So be yourself! Be original! Live life to the full till there is nothing left for you to do because you have become all you were created to be, done all you were designed to do; given all you were sent to give. Be satisfied with nothing less than your best.

John 4: 34. “My food,” said Jesus “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.”

God dreamed about you. He put potential and ability within you to fulfil that dream. Many are aware of this but limited by past fears and negative influences. You alone are responsible to use what God has put in you. Make sure you complete your assignment when you leave the earth.

Deuteronomy 33: 11-12. “Like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions. The Lord alone leads you.”

2 Corinthians 8: 11. “Now finish the work so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it according to your means.”

We cannot become what we were born to be remaining what we are. Just like the mother eagle removes the comforts of her feathery nest to disturb her young eaglets into flying so our creator moves us beyond our comfort zones and forces us to fly. An eagle that does not fly does not fulfil its purpose. Your life will lack purpose and focus until you discover your wings [gifts] develop and use them.

Prophet Elijah in 1 Kings confronted the prophets of baal to prove whether baal or Jehovah was the true God. After much prayer and dancing the prophets of baal had no results. Then Elijah called on the Lord God and fire fell and consumed the sacrifice. He then commanded the people to kill the prophets of baal and it was done. Queen Jezebel a worshipper of baal heard the news and sent a life-threatening message to Elijah. He was now on the run with great fear wanting to die but God intervened and showed Elijah that there was much more left to be done before his full potential and purpose was maximized. If Elijah died when he wanted to quit, his successor Elisha who performed twice the miracles as Elijah would not have discovered his purpose and fulfilled his potential.

Can you imagine what the world would have lost if you were not born? What the world would lack if you failed to live out your potential? – Would you commit the music, songs, books, videos, inventions, cures, discoveries…to your grave? Ponder over how you can bless others while you are alive.

Stir up the gift of God in you. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might. Be yourself! Be original. Complete your assignment!

THE CALL

What on earth am I here for? Have you ever asked this question? It’s one of the greatest questions you could ever ask. It could put you on the path to finding God’s Will for your life. It will bring you great joy once you find and accomplish it. And a greater joy to hear the Master say, “Well done thou good and faithful servant…”

In the story of Mary and Martha, the Lord commends Mary for having found it.
Luke10: 42. “And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”

Paul found and accomplished it too.
Galatians 1: 15-16. “But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles…”

2 Timothy 4: 6-7. “…the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

Lord Jesus found and finished the work his Father gave him to do.

Hebrews 10: 7. ‘Behold, I have come—In the volume of the book it is written of Me—to do Your will, O God.”

Luke 4: 18. “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind; to set at liberty those who are oppressed…”

John 4: 34. “My food is to do the will of Him who sent me and to finish His work.

John 9: 4. “I must work the works of Him who sent Me…”

John 17: 4. “I have glorified You on earth. I have finished the work You gave me… “

John 19: 30. “It is finished!”

What does God want me to do?

Believe in Jesus and bear fruit.
John 6: 28-29. Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”

John 15: 8. “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.”

Have you heard some say, “It’s my life, I’ll live it the way I want to!”
Where is God in it? Is Jesus Lord of my life? – God called us to finish our assignment and spend eternity with him.

There are two aspects of your call, one eternal and one temporal.
In the eternal aspect you are called to spend eternity with him, and your testing ground is here on earth where you relate in love with him and his family, and 1 Corinthians 13 is the standard.

In the temporal aspect, you don’t need stars to foretell or a fortune-teller which are both an abomination in God’s sight. What we need is His Word and promises. You are special. He will guide and prepare you according to His Word.

Jeremiah 29: 11. “I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD. They are plans for peace and not disaster plans to give you a future filled with hope.”

Psalms 32: 8. The LORD says, “I will instruct you. I will teach you the way that you should go. I will advise you as my eyes watch over you.”

We need to find His blueprint, plan, meditate on it and obey it the way He tells you to, by spending much time with Him and with His Word.

He has given us His Spirit to show us things to come.
John 16: 13. “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”

Proverbs 15: 22. He has given us godly counsellors in tune with him to assist in guiding us.

Finally, trust the Lord to complete the work he began in you.

Philippians 1: 6. “…He who has begun a good work in you will complete it…”

AWAKEN YOUR PROPHETIC DESTINY — Prophet Tony Mathias

You may be holding on to prophetic words decreed over your life over the years that have still not come to pass.

You need to know how to make them come true.

Prophetic words are ‘Keys.’

They could also be called Keys of Revelation, Keys of the Kingdom or Rhema. They all mean the same thing. Matthew 16: 17-19.

When God says something about you, or you receive a prophetic word through a prophet, dream, reading of scriptures, television broadcast he is giving you a ‘prophetic key’ to unlock heaven and release your destiny.

In fact, God builds his Kingdom, his Church on revelation.

Simon Peter received a ‘Prophetic Key’ from heaven when Jesus asked his disciples a personal question: “Who do you say I am?”

He replied: “You are the Messiah the Son of the living God” Matthew 16: 15.

When Jesus heard this He told him of four things.

1. God the Father had revealed this truth to him.
2. His name would be called Peter, ‘a rock’ which means revelation.
3. Jesus would build his Church on revelation.
4. He would give him Keys of the Kingdom.

This prophetic word needs to be birthed. If it is not birthed it will not come to pass. Did Peter birth this prophetic word given to him? Yes, he did. How do we know?

He received the Father’s revelation; he changed his name to Peter in obedience; he received further prophetic keys of revelation that prompted him to write:

2 Peter 1: 19. “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; to which you do well that you take heed, as unto a light that shines in a dark place…”

To make prophetic words come to pass you need to take four steps.

A. “Receive the Prophetic Word” 2 Chronicles 20: 20.
“…Believe in the Lord and you will be established; Believe his prophets and you will succeed.” – You receive only when you believe it and speak it forth as Peter did! God builds his Kingdom through you through prophetic words.

B. Send Out Warrior Angels to War Psalms 34: 7; Psalms 103: 20; Jeremiah 1: 10.
On your behalf in the Name of the Lord with specific instructions regarding the word you have received.

C. Bind the Enemy – Matthew 18: 18.
Bind, pull-down and uproot whatever opposes the fulfilment of the word you received.

D. Loose or Release Your Prophetic Destiny Psalms 39: 3.
Daniel birthed God’s Prophetic Word given to him while reading the Book of Jeremiah – to release the Babylonian captives. He meditated, prayed and declared this word. In fact, Christianity is called Our Great Confession.

So Release Your Prophetic Destiny With These Four Vital Steps in Faith.
