Theme: New Spirit for New Season
Topic: The New spirit will lead us into the New Season
Text: Number 14: 22-24

*unless otherwise indicated, all verses in this text are drawn from New King James Version (NKJV)

To enter the New Season is our right and inheritance, but in order to get into it we need to receive the New Spirit. No matter how smart, strong or capable we are we can only get access to the New Season after receiving the New Spirit. Even the Grace of Gold alone isn’t enough to take us into the New Season. Above His Grace we need His New Spirit.

One of the best instances of the powerful work of the New Spirit recorded in the Scriptures is found in the story of Caleb. That is why we have centered our teaching on the New Spirit on the text of Ezekiel. The Lord freed Israelites from Egypt so that they may live their season of blessings in the land of Canaan. But because of instability they couldn’t enter the Promised Land. While on the outskirt of Canaan, the Israelites sent spies into it. What the spies returned as feedback was news of fearsome Giants inhabiting the land. This dissuaded the leaders of Israel; they were filled with fear, all but Caleb.

What made Caleb different is the spirit of positivity he had in him. Truly in man it is the spirit. Also, Caleb had faith in God, a faith based on the miracles Jehovah had operated for them since their release from Egypt. The other leaders forgot that the Lord divide the sea so they may cross without a single drop of water touching them. They forgot that Jehovah drowned an entire army of the mighty Egyptian who were chasing them.
Today we can liken the Promised Land to the New Season. The New Season is the time of the visitation of God in our lives, a time of miracles in our marriage, finances, health…We can only enter this season after receiving the New Spirit and placing our faith in the Lord. Again, like the spies in the time of Caleb, today many people in our environment are good at making us hopeless by constantly repeating to us that we will never succeed, that it is over for us and that nothing we will do can change that. Yes, maybe nothing we’ll do can change that but our God can send upon us His New Spirit that will change our lives for ever. Alleluia!!!

In the Scriptures, there are many others instances of the wonders accomplished though this New Spirit. Mary, the mother of Jesus, she found grace in the eyes of God but that wasn’t enough. She had to be overshadowed by the New Spirit. (Luke 1-32-35). And the wonder was the supernatural birth of the greatest man that ever set foot on earth, the Christ Jesus. Another instance of the might of New Spirit is found in Zach 4: 6-7. Zerubbabel , his name meant the one who takes away confusion. But he became confused himself when faced with the challenge of rebuilding the new temple, the task of removing the mound of debris was above his abilities. He needed the New Spirit. So I declare today that the mountain of bareness, poverty, misery illness that you face will be overcome with the help of the New Spirit.

Beloved, truly no one can help you but our God in heaven. This God has done things in the past for us and today He will do it again. Today the Church needs men and women like Caleb, men and women who won’t be swayed by the negative reports we receive every day from the News, reports of a world descending into a chaos. Beloved, things may look bad today, but the Scriptures say there is a time for every thing, there is a time to weep with challenges but there is also a time to laugh. You may be weeping now because of suffering, but your redeemer is alive and has seen your tears. When He’ll rise your tears will be wiped off. Alleluia!!! All we need is the New Spirit of God. No matter how long suffering will take, inside us the Spirit will speak that change will come. Not by our strength but by the faith in God. Glory be to the God of The Glorious Church.

Thème : Un nouvel esprit pour la nouvelle saison
Sujet : Le nouvel esprit conduit dans la nouvelle saison

Texte : Nombres 14: 22-24; Nombres 13 : 17-20

* Sauf indication contraire les versets dans ce texte sont tirés de la version Louis Segond (LSG)

Dans une nouvelle saison il nous faut un nouvel esprit pour expérimenter la bonté de Dieu. Le Nouvel Esprit est un esprit positif et optimiste. Avant que le Seigneur nous bénisse, il nous dotera d’abord d’un nouvel esprit. Cet esprit de positivité et d’obéissance nous aidera à surmonter nos défis avant même de leur faire face.

Pour chaque défi une nouvelle stratégie est nécessaire. Pour chaque miracle Jésus a utilisé un geste différent. Notre Seigneur adapte l’onction au temps et à la situation. Le livre d’Esaïe parle des sept esprits du Seigneur qui fonctionnent selon des cycles de sept bonnes saisons et sept mauvaises saisons. Dans leur conquête de la Terre promise, les tribus d’Israël avaient utilisé des différentes stratégies de lutte contre des différents ennemis. De même nous avons besoin d’un nouvel esprit pour entrer dans notre nouvelle saison.

Dans notre texte du livre des Nombres, Dieu refusa l’entrée dans la Terre promise à tous les dirigeants d’Israël sauf Caleb. L’Eternel permit Caleb d’hériter la terre parce qu’il avait un esprit différent. Caleb était un leader d’un type différent. Caleb avait un esprit de positivité, il avait pleinement confiance dans le Seigneur et par-dessus tout, il était obéissant aux commandements du Seigneur. Cela avait conduit l’Éternel a appelé Caleb comme étant son serviteur. Même Joshua n’avais jamais eu ce privilège !

Bien-aimés, si vous souhaitez voir la nouvelle saison, vous devez avoir un esprit comme celui de Caleb. Pour entrer dans votre saison vous devez placer entièrement votre confiance en Dieu peu importe les défis que vous pourriez rencontrer. Face aux défis, peu importe combien difficiles ils sont, vous devez vous rappeler des choses que Dieu a faites pour vous, vous devez vous rappeler comment votre Dieu a pris soin de vous depuis votre naissance. S’il pouvait faire ces choses quand vous étiez petit, à combien plus forte raison maintenant que vous avez atteint cet âge ?

Comme Caleb, nous devons obéir pleinement au commandement de Dieu si nous voulons voir notre saison. Ainsi, comme Caleb nous serons appelés serviteurs de Dieu. Un serviteur de Dieu n’est pas seulement un prêtre, un évangéliste, un pasteur ou un prophète. Caleb n’était rien de tout cela. Un serviteur de Dieu est celui qui écoute, obéit et exécute l’ordre de Dieu. Beaucoup parmi les chrétiens écoutent les paroles de Dieu mais ne les mettent pas en pratique.

Seuls les vrais serviteurs de Dieu verront leur nouvelle saison. Le Seigneur déclare que son serviteur sera élevé. En devenant vrai serviteur de l’Eternel, nous allons recevoir de Dieu le nouvel esprit, ce nouvel esprit nous aidera à réaliser l’impossible. Alléluia !!! Tous les grands personnages de la Bible : Samson, David, Saül, …; reçurent l’Esprit de Dieu sur eux avant leur élévation. Ainsi, comme eux, je prophétise bien-aimé que l’année 2015 est l’année dans laquelle vous recevrez l’esprit nouveau qui vous aidera à entrer dans votre saison d’élévation. Gloire soit rendue au Dieu de l’Eglise Glorieuse

Text: Number 14: 22-24; Number 13:17-10

*unless otherwise indicated, all verses in this text are drawn from New King James Version (NKJV)

In a New Season we need a New Spirit to experience the goodness of God. The New Spirit is a positive and optimistic mindset. Before the Lord blesses us he will bless us with a new spirit. This spirit of positivity and obedience will help us overcome our challenges before we even face them.

For every challenge a new strategy is needed. For every miracle Jesus used different gestures. Our Lord adapts anointing to its time and situations. The book of Isaiah names the 7 spirits of the Lord that work according to cycles of 7 good seasons and 7 bad seasons. In their conquest of the Promised Land, the tribes of Israel used different strategies against different enemies. Likewise we need a New Spirit in order to enter our New Season.

In our text of the book of Numbers, God refused entry to the Promised Land to all the leaders of Israel but Caleb. Jehovah permitted Caleb to inherit the land because he had different spirit. Caleb was a leader of a kind different from others. Caleb had a spirit of positivity, he fully trusted in the Lord and above all he was obedient to the commands of the Lord. And this led Jehovah Himself, from His own mouth, to call Caleb His servant. Even Joshua never had that privilege!

Beloved, if you wish to ever see you New Season, you need to have a spirit like that of Caleb. In order to enter your season you need to fully place you trust in God no matter the challenges you might face. Beloved when facing challenges, no matter how tough they are, you have to remember of one thing God did for you, you need to remember how your God has taken care of you since your birth. If He could do these things when you were small, how much can He do now that you have reached this age.

And like Caleb, we need to fully obey God’s command if we wish to see our season. And like Caleb we will be called servants of God. A servant of God isn’t a priest, evangelist, prophet or pastor only. Caleb was none of this. A servant of God is he who listens, obeys and executes God’s order. Many among Christians only listen to the words of God but do not put them into practice.

Only true servant of God will see their New Season. The Lord says His servant will be exalted. By becoming true servant of Jehovah we will receive from God the New Spirit, this New Spirit that will make us achieve the impossible. Alleluia!!! All great people of the Bible: Samson, David, Saul; received the Spirit of God upon them prior to their elevation. And like them I prophecy to you Beloved that 2015 is the year you will receive the New Spirit that will help you get into your season of elevation. Glory be to the God of the Glorious Church

Theme: New Spirit for New Season
Topic: Earnest prayer is the key to the New Season
Text: Number 14: 22-26; James 5: 15

*unless otherwise indicated, all verses in this text are drawn from New King James Version (NKJV)

The new season is only for those who have the spirit of the season. We need to have the spirit of the season in order to accommodate ourselves in the new season. This new spirit consists in doing things with the aim to impress God and praying according to His will. The latter is what we call earnest prayer.

In the text of Number 14, the Lord deprived those who have not heeded His voice of the privilege of seeing the Promised Land. But about Caleb the Lord said, “But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land where he went, and his descendants shall inherit it.” Caleb was allowed access to the Promised Land because he had a different spirit. Think of the Promised Land as the New Season. We can only enter into the new season if we have a different spirit i.e. if we do thinks according to the will of God.

Among things that should be done according to God’s will is prayer. An earnest prayer is a prayer made according to God’s will. That explains why the first characteristic of earnest prayers is that they are answered by God. The eyes of the Lord are set on earth seeking for those making earnest prayers.

An earnest prayer is not a prayer made by regularly going to church or while shedding tears. An earnest prayer is a prayer made while obeying the words of God. Beloved, your prayers can never be answered if you behave in a way that doesn’t honour God. Also, an earnest prayer is a prayer made while patiently waiting for God to answer; For if you are not patient in prayer you will become a patient of physicians.

An earnest prayer is so powerful it can make us achieve the unthinkable. The Israelites were grasshopper compared to the dwellers of Canaan who were giants, Caleb knew it and so he resorted to prayer in order to conquer the land of the enemy. Beloved, you may fail to meet all criteria needed to succeed, but through prayer Jehovah will make you capable to succeed. James, the half brother of Jesus, says this about prayer: “the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven (James 5: 15).” Beloved, Prayer will make you not back off from challenges. It will take you where nothing else could. Alleluia!!!

Prayer is the key to enter the new season. But a prayer can only be effective when it made earnestly. An earnest prayer can never prove itself to be useless. An earnest prayer doesn’t take into account distance, location or position. All that matters is our behavior to honor the Lord and us to obeye His will.
