Turning Point Service
Without a vision you will perish and Keeping God's law makes you have a happy year like the song writer says " Trust and obey for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus ...". May happiness not escape you in this new year!
How you see this year will determine how the year will be like for you. The Lord said to the prophet Jeremiah:
"SEE, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what SEEST thou? And I said, I SEE a rod of an almond tree. Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well SEEN: for I will hasten my word to perform it." (Jeremiah 1:10-12). God was really concerned about what Jeremiah was seeing because He was going to watch over that to perform a great work in his life.
My question to you this beginning of year is 'What Do you see in 2013?’
Many are concerned about the number 13 because it has come down to us as a number of ill-omen. Many superstitions cluster around it, and various explanations are current concerning them. Eg Many lifts don't have 13th floor, planes don't have seat no. 13, Many DON’T like the day 13th especially if its a Friday. Etc etc. Scripturally, the first occurrence in the Bible of the number thirteen in order to discover the key to its significance is in Genesis 14:4, where we read: "Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and the THIRTEENTH year they REBELLED." Hence every occurrence of the number thirteen, and likewise of every multiple of it, stamps that with which it stands in connection with REBELLION, APOSTASY, DEFECTION, CORRUPTION, DISINTEGRATION, REVOLUTION, or some kindred idea.
During the latter part of 2012, as I pondered over and prayed about what The Lord had in store for us this year for the Turning Point Service, the words "MOUNT ZION" came strongly to me and I knew in my spirit that this was where or what The Lord wanted us to experience this year ie To embark on a spiritual journey to a higher level of FAITHFULNESS AND LOYALTY to God; getting closer to Him in and experiencing Him than we have ever done. Like Moses in Exodus 34, May we descend the mountain at the end of the year with our faces shining with the glory of The Lord! Somebody shout Amen!
Come to the Turning Point Service this and every Thursdays from 9:00am to 12:00pm. You will never be the same.
