Do you RECEIVE the prophecy?
And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee,
To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David;
and the virgin's name was Mary.
And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured,
the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying,
and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
And the angel said unto her, FEAR NOT, Mary:for thou hast found FAVOUR with God.
And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son,
and shalt call his name JESUS.
He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest:
and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever;
and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
And the angel answered and said unto her, The`HOLY GHOST shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee:
therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
For with God NOTHING shall be impossible.
And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
BlogFam, Have YOU RECEIVED your prophecy?
One of the most significant moments in the Gospel of Luke, BEFORE the birth of the Christ-child, is the angelic visitation of Gabriel with Mary. I know that we have already celebrated the birth of Jesus and by this time, the Christmas lights are packed away, the tree is on the curb, the Christmas speeches have been recited and forgotten, and the unwanted gifts have been returned. However, BEFORE Jesus could be the REASON for the SEASON, there was a prophetic word that went forth which became the hope of generations that a MESSIAH was coming!
Now, I can only imagine the countless numbers of men and women who had heard that prophetic word; BUT there was only ONE Mary who was chosen to RECEIVE the divine impartation of the seed of that Word. There was only ONE Mary who received a visit from Gabriel telling her to NOT be afraid of the message or the messenger. Mary had found FAVOR with God and she ALONE was to carry the GREAT one, the Son of the HIGHEST, Jesus, whose reign would be forever and whose kingdom would have NO end. There was only ONE Mary who, in her priority to protect her sexual innocence, would ask how could such a prophecy occur in her life when she had never engaged in the step necessary - outside of the modern day fertility treatments – to receive life inside of her. There was only ONE Mary who heard the angel tell her that she would be impregnated by the power of the Holy Ghost in order to carry that holy thing which would be born of her vacant womb. There was only ONE Mary who not only heard the prophetic message but she received it in a moment that would change her life forever – For she had been assured that with GOD NOTHING shall be impossible!
And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord;
be it unto me according to thy word.
BlogFam, on this day, December 31, 2011, the last day of the year, I want to decree and declare unto you that it is just the beginning! Our God wants to impart a prophetic seed into your womb that ONLY you can receive and that only He can give to you by the power of the Holy Ghost! I know that some of you believe that you are waiting for the birth of your spiritual baby BUT unfortunately, what you have deemed as a time of birth is really a time of impartation and impregnation with a divine seed into your spirit that will be placed in your vacant womb. Some of you are NOT at birth the birthing stage because you have not yet received the seed of life which is ready to be deposited into you if you only believe.
BEFORE Jesus was born, there was a young virgin who had been chosen to RECEIVE a miraculous seed that would grow inside of her for a period of time and at the appointed time, she would give birth to the one for whom the world had long awaited. Ladies and Gents, many of you have heard a word BUT have not yet received the seed and therefore, those who have long awaited the miraculous birth out your womb will continue to do so because you have not yet availed your mind, your body, or your spirit to RECEIVE the seed our God wants to impart into your vacant womb. You cannot give birth without first receiving a seed.
Friends, I cannot say that I know WHAT it is you are to do, HOW you are to move forward, WHO it is you need to meet, or WHERE it is you need to go. I do NOT know the details of YOUR seed. BUT I can tell you this:
For with GOD, NOTHING shall be impossible.
AND by FAITH, on this last day of 2011, I hope that YOU would say YES Lord, I RECEIVE your word for my life. I am your handmaid, your vessel, your servant and I am willing to surrender all that I have in order that your holy seed will be deposited into me AND grow inside of me AND will one day give birth through me so that your word may be fulfilled with me.
BlogFam, it is the last day of the year but THIS IS JUST YOUR BEGINNING!
THE BEST IS YET TO COME! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
Let us pray…
A NEW YEAR’S PRAYER
Holy One, I thank you for the Word you have declared over my life from my mother’s womb. And on today, I avail myself to receive that word. I acknowledge that I do not understand how these things can be in my life but I trust that I was created for this purpose and with you NOTHING shall be impossible.
It will come to pass.
So, Lord, I thank you for the seed that will impregnate me, that will grow inside of me over time, and one day, I will give birth to something that many have long awaited.
IN JESUS NAME, I pray, Amen.
God Loves You and I do too!
