JUNE 2017 NEWSLETTER
SEASON OF SUPERNATURAL FULL-PROOF OF GOD’S WORD AND PROMISES
“…For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God” (Romans 8:19)
Dearly beloved, I welcome you to the month of June, our Covenant Season of Supernatural Full-Proof of God’s Word and Promises! Beloved, God will not do anything without His Word. His Word is proven beyond error, it is foolproof, infallible and dependable. Supernatural proofs are the visible evidences and manifestations of the power of God that help the unbeliever to believe. It will help them believe and be converted without much persuasion. In John 4:5, after the man experienced the signs and wonders manifested through the supernatural healing of his son, he immediately believed, including his household. Imagine a whole family getting born again in one day because of a singular action. That is the essence of supernatural full-proof, following you according to Mark 16:17. The same way light shines for the purpose of bringing people out of darkness, as a child of God, you are created for signs and wonders and when you manifest the power of God, you will cause many on account of you to be translated from the kingdom of darkness into Gods marvelous light (Isaiah 60:1).
Furthermore, the bible says signs and wonders shall follow you. In other words, as you have believed and focus on Jesus, he will work with you to validate your ministry with supernatural proofs accompanying it. This will boost your faith as a Christian and cause many to believe that indeed you have been called. It will validate your call and bring many to the knowledge of the truth. Mark 16:20 Says ‘And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Whatever your call or assignment, signs and wonders are the tools God has given to you and by the time you begin to manifest this in your job, business or assignment, people will see and marvel at the greatness of the power of God that is causing you to excel beyond human understanding and they will have no choice but to switch over to your God. Child of God, having seen His supernatural finger and received his Help, it is now our season to show the world our proofs, evidences and diverse manifestations of God’s power in our ministries, businesses, finances, health, relationships and families because His Words are inexplicably infallible. Let’s make full proof of our Ministries (2 Tim. 4:5)!
THE PURPOSE OF DIVINE PROOF
A sign as described in the dictionary means a token or an indication. It could also mean any object, action, event, pattern, etc., that conveys a meaning, a direction or an instruction. We are all very familiar with road signs. They play a very vital role in our daily lives. Some signs tell us to stop, go right or left. So every sign must be saying something or conveying a message. Furthermore the sign must be visible and seen in order to fulfil its purpose, even when it is hidden, it then has to be searched out. When a sign manifests in a manner that exceeds the human comprehension, it becomes an amazement to the viewers and therefore described as a wonder. Wonders are signs or occurrences that catch your attention, leaving you in amazement and awe. Child of God, the bible says, …except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe (John 4:48); again, Isaiah 8:18 declares …behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders; this is the season when you shall experience and manifest that visible and undeniable evidences of the finger and help of God in your life, job, family, finances, etc.
If therefore we are made to be carriers of divine proofs according to the scriptures, then it means that our lives are indicators that will give instructions and directions such that when people see, they will be stunned and amazed at the wonderful things that God is doing in and through us. The reason people are attracted to you is because of what you carry, You are a carrier of the message that will give direction, You are the light that will illuminate their path, you are the sign the people are waiting to see before deciding on their next line of action, you are the signal that will propel them to take action. Jesus said in John 4:48 that the people will only believe when they see signs and wonders. So there are many whose salvation of souls is tied to our manifestation as a sign and a wonder.
It is said that when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable. In order for us not to abuse the privilege that God has given us to manifest and produce living and evidential proofs, we must continually remind ourselves that the purpose is not for showmanship or to gather disciples for ourselves or to take authorship. Rather, it is to bring unbelievers to believe and accept Jesus as their Lord and saviour. One would have thought that the reason why God manifested in Acts 16: 23-26 was to set Paul and Silas free from the prison, No! The reason for that miracle was to liberate the jailer and his family from their spiritual bondage. Although Paul and Silas were physically in jail, the jailer has always been in spiritual bondage and God had to organize this episode for the liberation of the jailer and his household. Friends, the signs and wonders are just means to an end, not the real deal. The real deal is what happens thereafter. Are people getting saved by what God is doing through you, are lives being changed and transformed by your light? This should be your focus and should not be misconstrued.

THE DEPENDABILITY OF GOD’S WORD (Matthew 5:17-20)
We use words to communicate thoughts and feelings. We even use words to convey our wishes and desires, and at times to impose our will on others. God uses words as well. He is the one who invented languages. He is the one who created us with the capacity to formulate words, as well as to comprehend them. For as long as man has been on this earth, God’s words have been available to us. Whether in story form, oral tradition, or in writing, God’s message to us has always been around. If therefore, we join ourselves to God’s words, our future will be secured, because His Words are forever (Matthew 5:17-18).
Every word that God speaks is strong and true, and it will last forever. Jesus is making reference to the Old Testaments (OT) in these verses. He is saying that the words God spoke over the period of a few thousand years still stand. Sometimes we get the idea that God changes His mind depending on the situation and the state of the world. However, if we view God’s revelation of Himself as progressive, then we understand that He gave us as much as we could receive throughout the various time periods of the world. Paul called the Law a tutor that helped people see their need for God and His grace.
How reliable are God’s words from the past? Jesus said not even the smallest stroke of a pen would be changed or taken away, and so it is till this day. “As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:10-11). Consequently, God’s words can be trusted! But it’s hard to trust them if you don’t read them. A writer once gave an acronym for WORD (Want it, Open it, Read it, and Do it). If you’ll read it, you’ll find out for yourself what this next point is all about. Remember, Jesus is the fulfillment of all that God has said (Matthew 5:17).
THE MANIFESTATION OF SUPERNATURAL PROOFS:
- The demolition of ungodly structures, foundations, installations and institutions standing in the way of God’s plan and purpose for His people.
- The elimination and deletion of the reproach of God’s people – the termination of age-long reproaches, afflictions and bondages for those who will obey His instructions.
- The distinction and exemption of God’s people – God proving Himself in the lives of His people; setting His people apart in a crises-full world – loss for the people of the world, gain for the people of God; the world would be losing but the church would be gaining.
- The harvest of multitudes in response to the presence, power and principles of God in the midst of His people.
- The multiplication of testimonies of supernatural visitations, angelic encounters and Holy Ghost activity, resulting in increased spiritual intensity
KEYS TO EXPERIENCING SUPERNATURAL PROOFS:
- The Knowledge of God
- The Life of Prayer
- The Life of Faith
- The life of soul-winning
- The Life of Giving and Tithing
Beloved, God’s words are reliable and require our full attention. We can never hope to measure up on our own, that is why Jesus came to this earth and paved the way for us. If therefore we are made to be carriers of divine proofs according to the scriptures, then it means that our lives are indicators that will give instructions and directions such that when people see, they will be stunned and amazed at the wonderful things that God is doing in and through us. The reason people are attracted to you is because of what you carry, You are a carrier of the message that will give direction, You are the light that will illuminate their path, you are the sign the people are waiting to see before deciding on their next line of action, you are the signal that will propel them to take action. Jesus said in John 4:48 that the people will only believe when they see proofs of what you preach. So there are many whose salvation of souls is tied to our manifestation of supernatural proofs. Remember, it is said that when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable. In order for us not to abuse the privilege that God has given us to manifest and produce supernatural proofs, we must continually remind ourselves that the purpose is not for showmanship or to gather disciples for ourselves or to take authorship. Rather, it is to bring unbelievers to believe and accept Jesus as their Lord and saviour. What exactly is your need? God can meet all in this season. Go to Him in prayers. Seek His face with sincerity in fasting. Find His will in the Scriptures – His WORD (Want it, Open it, Read it, Do it) and He will answer you. Beloved, remember, “…For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God” (Romans 8:19). And I speak into your life that you will no longer read God’s word in vain. Every word of God you come across will not go in vain, but shall go right into your situation and do what the word says concerning your life and it shall be evidential for others to see and believe your God in Jesus mighty name.
