TIS THE SEASON OF MANIFESTATION Pt.4
Prophecy Becomes Reality
MANIFESTATION – your dream life becomes your real life
Forward Thinkers, the birth of Jesus is so powerful for many different reasons but one of the most impactful revelations of Jesus’ birth is the fact that it fulfills the prophetic word of God making everything in God’s Word a real possibility for us all.
Forward Thinkers, the birth of Jesus allows us to believe with full confidence that everything God promised us about us will become reality for us.
Footnote: Forward Thinkers, it may not always look like it’s happening, but we must continue to walk by faith and we will eventually walk right into our season of manifestation.
Matthew 1:21-23 New International Version (NIV)
21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,[a] because he will save his people from their sins.”
22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”[b] (which means “God with us”).
Luke 2:6-7 New International Version (NIV)
6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.
Forward Thinkers, Mary and Joseph were in the midst of a rough and difficult journey to Bethlehem when the time came for Jesus to be born. Many can relate because the previous journey of 2017 was difficult, from the election of President Donald Trump to the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.
1) Forward Thinkers, traveling 80 miles on horseback or donkey for a pregnant woman is not easy and your journey this season may also be unpleasant but remember, in the end, your journey will be worth the cost of your sacrifice.
2) Forward Thinkers, don’t quit; your time is coming. This is a new year filled with new possibilities.
3) Forward Thinkers, notice it happened just as the Old Testament prophecy of the bible said it would and we can stand with full confidence in 2018 that God will do exactly what He promised He would do for us.
4) Forward Thinkers, have you ever realized the bible calls Jesus Mary’s firstborn? Meaning there will be more children to come. Forward Thinkers, this year we must believe God for Increased Growth in every area of our life.
Forward Thinkers, I showed you a glimpse of the promise fulfilled to encourage you to keep going this season as you prepare for your season of manifestation. Let’s go back to Matthew 1:21-23…
Forward Thinkers, notice the bible says Jesus will save His people from their sins.
1) Nobody is too far gone. Jesus came for us all. Yes, even those you can’t stand.
2) The bible says, “for God so loved the world.” That means all of us, regardless of our background story.
3) Yet while we were still sinners, Jesus died for us, meaning he was also born for us while we are still sinners.
Forward Thinkers, they will call him Immanuel (which means God with us)
1) The birth of Jesus became a covenant promise that we will never be alone.
2) The birth of Jesus connected us to our power system and birthed the fact that we can do all things through Christ Jesus (Jesus the Promise Giver and Promise Keeper).
3) Forward Thinkers, knowing God is with us should change our attitude and increase our level of faith to do something great in 2018.
Forward Thinkers, Jesus was wrapped in cloths.
1) Forward Thinkers, don’t be fooled by what it looks like. He was still born a king. Remember, looks can be deceiving and the enemy specializes in deception.
2) Forward Thinkers, clothes don’t make you great. You make clothes great and in 2018, we must be purpose-driven and not label-driven.
3) Forward Thinkers, the enemy wants to steal your true identity and confuse your mind by having you put too much focus on stuff over purpose.
Forward Thinkers, Jesus was placed in a manger.
1) Humble beginnings for someone who will turn water into wine and walk on water, give sight to the blind, and heal the sick. Forward Thinkers, God can use you no matter how humble your beginnings are.
2) Forward Thinkers, don’t let your beginning determine your ending.
3) Jesus can relate to us because He started from humble beginnings making it possible for Him to show us how to walk into manifestation. Jesus started at the bottom and now he’s sitting on the top.
Forward Thinkers, there was no room in the Inn for Jesus.
1) Forward Thinkers, don’t let them stop you because they don’t recognize your greatness.
2) Jesus was overlooked but God had purpose and power planned for him and the same thing holds true for you in 2018.
3) Forward Thinkers, we must understand everything happened just as it was supposed to happen because God is always in control.
