2017 will be the year of accountability for both our nation [The United States of America] and the Church!
The LORD is saying to me that 2017 will be a year of accountability for both the church and the world. 2 (witness) +0+1 (unity) +7 (17) (perfection/ rest/ divine perfection) = 10.
This will be a year of order, completion, fullness, ten: government; law (commandments); tithe; measure; trial; testing.
This will be a year when God is going to require that the people stop turning their heads to things going on in both our nation and the church. God is going to raise up some bold soldiers (Joshuas & Calebs) who are going to speak His word with fire and they will take the people over to the promised land without fear!
In addition, it will be the year of the tithe; as well. The LORD is going to open up the doors from heaven for the righteous, but God is also saying; no more excuses as to why you are not on one (unity) accord and not supporting those in ministry who are speaking his word with both fire and boldness.
The LORD said; giving to the Church and making excuses as to why they cannot give and to support ministries, will no longer be tolerated! Many of you have taken and taken (sat at the table and enjoyed the meal and wiped your mouth with no regard for those vessels that God has sent to feed you!) and have failed to give back to God and His people.
But, I hear God saying that 2017 will be a time for the tithes and offerings, and when God is going to hold those who are saved and unsaved accountable, just as He did the 10 virgins.
If you don’t have oil in your lamps, God is requiring that you find someone (church/ leader/ tribe) who will be able to help you to become activated with fresh oil. If you are not saved, you need to be finding you a church (tribe, leader etc.) who can help you to come to Jesus as Romans 10:9-10 has said.
Or better yet, someone that can teach, activate, train, and to release you into your assigned destiny. No more lone-rangers or cowboys-gone-wild will be tolerated! But, I hear the LORD saying, “Away with your excuses!”
The LORD is saying, “Therefore thou art inexcusable, o man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. And thinkest thou this, o man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?” (Romans 12:1-5).
It is time for people to stop with the excuses, because Jesus nailed them all to the cross! And, we are inexcusable for not knowing the word of the LORD when God has made every effort to send: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers warning you day after day on Facebook, and other social media outlets, and still many of us have hardened our hearts and turned up our noses saying, that isn’t me that is sister so and so.
But in this season, God is going to deal with many of you harshly, because He has sent warning after warning telling you to make changes and you still have not made them.
Get ready people of God, because just as God gave Moses the 10 Commandments and had him to deliver them to the children of Israel, so He is going to send instructions for His people; as well.
For, he told Moses, “I AM the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other Gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy, (Exodus 2:2-8)
More instructions are coming for 2017, get ready, get ready!
For, I hear God saying that this will be a year for both blessings and riches for those who will hearken unto His words and His commandments and there will be much overflow. But God is going to hold many accountable for what they are doing with what he has given them, (talents, gifts etc.), just as he did the 10 virgins we discussed earlier. For 5 were wise and 5 were foolish and they took their lamps and failed to take any oil in their lamps.
What have you failed to do in 2016? Well, in 2017 God is not going to allow you to bring old oil into a new season!
If you failed to consecrate yourself, to give and to be a blessing to others you are going to miss out on so much just as the 5 foolish virgins did who failed to take their lamps and to put oil in their lamps.
What confusion and chaos came upon them all because they were too lazy to go and to buy for themselves. And, as they went to buy oil the bridegroom came while they had went to the 5 wise trying to get some of their oil there was none to be found.
Come on people, in 2016 many of you lived off of other folk’s oil and rode off of their blessings but in 2017, I hear the LORD saying, “No more! You are going to have to be accountable for your own oil and the things that God has given unto you!”
To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? Saith the LORD. I AM full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread My courts? Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I AM weary to bear them. And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:12-18).
Get ready people of God, because God is getting ready to do a new thing in 2017 for those who are faithful and who will obey His word!
No more living beneath your privileges. It is time to go to Him that hath and to buy this oil for yourself before it is too late!
“And concerning the tithe of the herd or the flock, of whatever passes under the rod, the tenth one shall be holy to the Lord,” Leviticus 27:32 (Giving).
“So he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he neither ate bread nor drank water. And He wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments,” Exodus 34:28 (Consecration).
“Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life,” Revelation 2:10, (Trials & Testing).
Matthew 25:1-13 (Oil & Preparation).
