TIS THE SEASON OF MANIFESTATION
“The word is a force you cannot see, but you can see the manifestation of that force, the expression of the word, which is your own life.” Don Miguel Ruiz
Prophecy Becomes Reality
MANIFESTATION– the act of something going from theory to reality
Prophecy becomes reality
Dreams turn into reality
(Latin) to make public
Forward Thinkers, God is getting ready this season to turn your shame and struggle into public success. Forward Thinkers, the big question this season is are you ready to receive it?
Forward Thinkers, this season your prayers prayed in pain will give birth to your Kingdom purpose.
Forward Thinkers, you’ve been waiting and watching others but this is your season of manifestation.
Luke 1:5-7New International Version (NIV)
The Birth of John the Baptist Foretold
5 In the time of Herod king of Judea there was a priest named Zechariah, who belonged to the priestly division of Abijah; his wife Elizabeth was also a descendant of Aaron. 6 Both of them were righteous in the sight of God, observing all the Lord’s commands and decrees blamelessly. 7 But they were childless because Elizabeth was not able to conceive, and they were both very old.
Luke 1:23-25New International Version (NIV)
23 When his time of service was completed, he returned home. 24 After this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant and for five months remained in seclusion. 25 “The Lord has done this for me,” she said. “In these days he has shown his favor and taken away my disgrace among the people.”
Forward Thinkers, the author Dr. Luke says he has investigated everything and he can report back to us that we can be certain God’s word shall be fulfilled among us.
Forward Thinkers, I know you are asking when and the answer to your question is in due season. Yes, Forward Thinkers the answer to when will God fulfill His Word in your life is at the appointed time.
The question this season is not if God can but when God will.
Luke says there are those who have already eye witnessed a great move of God’s word being manifested in their lives. Forward Thinkers is there anyone among us that can testify to a mighty move of God in their life?
Forward Thinkers, Zechariah is a priest working for God and he is married to Elizabeth who is from a Godly family and they both are called righteous by God.
Righteous- not perfect but committed to doing the right thing just because it’s the right thing to do even when nobody is looking.
Zechariah and Elizabeth are both doing the right thing BUT (look at verse 7) they are dealt a bad hand.
2) Not able to conceive
3) Both very old
Forward Thinkers, a major struggle in the Body of Christ is why does it often appear that those doing the right thing are watching others get what looks like the right results. Forward Thinkers, I’m not hating but have you ever thought how did the bad girl get the good husband or why did the no good dude land the good job. Forward Thinkers, pause and tell yourself it’s not over yet the best is still yet to come for you.
Luke 1:9New International Version (NIV)
9 he was chosen by lot, according to the custom of the priesthood, to go into the temple of the Lord and burn incense.
Forward Thinkers, Zachariah Was Chosen
Forward Thinkers, when God chooses you it’s only a matter of time before you give birth to something great.
They are still childless but they are Chosen.
Elizabeth is still barren but her man is Chosen.
They both are still very old but Zachariah is Chosen.
Forward Thinkers, when you are chosen by God you can endure anything.
Luke 1:13New International Version (NIV)
13 But the angel said to him: “Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to call him John.
Forward Thinkers, a new BUT shows up and the storyline shifts.
Don’t be afraid your prayers have been heard and your wife shall give you a son named John. Forward Thinkers, a new reality was just announced.
1) Son named John (Gender Reveal Party)
2) Joy and Delight
3) He will be Great
Forward Thinkers, this season of manifestation will first produce a season a change.
Forward Thinkers, this is the season your situation will be reversed and your dream life will become your new life.
Luke 1:18New International Version (NIV)
18 Zechariah asked the angel, “How can I be sure of this? I am an old man and my wife is well along in years.”
Forward Thinkers, excuses will kill greatness. Forward Thinkers, fear and doubt will destroy the possibility of new opportunities being manifested in your life.
Forward Thinkers, Zachariah is in right place and is doing the right thing but he is saying the wrong thing which causes his breakthrough to be put on hold. Watch what you are saying about your future.
Luke 1:19New International Version (NIV)
19 The angel said to him, “I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news.
Season Of Silence
-Forward Thinkers, stop talking yourself out of IT.
-Forward Thinkers, remember the words you speak indicate if you really believe God’s Word.
Luke 1:24New International Version (NIV)
24 After this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant and for five months remained in seclusion.
Elizabeth got pregnant but didn’t tell anyone for 5 months
-Forward Thinkers, stop telling everybody everything too soon.
-Forward Thinkers, there are people so jealous and evil they will try to poison your baby before it’s born.
-Forward Thinkers, learn to work in private because this season God will take it public soon enough (Big Belly on pregnant woman).
In 2018 there should be fewer pre-announcements and more celebrations of manifestation.
Luke 1:25New International Version (NIV)
25 “The Lord has done this for me,” she said. “In these days he has shown his favor and taken away my disgrace among the people.”
1) The Lord has done this for me
2) The Lord has shown me His favor
3) The Lord has taken away my disgrace
Luke 1:57New International Version (NIV)
The Birth of John the Baptist
57 When it was time for Elizabeth to have her baby, she gave birth to a son.
Forward Thinkers, in conclusion, everything happened just as the Lord had said it would happen so this season keep the faith and wait on things to manifest in your life.
