1 Thess.5:16-19 ”Rejoice ever more. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit.
- More than ever before in the history of the Church of Jesus Christ,2018 shall be the year of severe battles high praises and absolute victories for the Church that PRAYS in Jesus name
- Finally brethren why is the Lord promising us victory and giving us the strategy for battles in 2018?
- It is simply because the Bride of the Lamb must get herself ready for the return of the Bridegroom
- Satan knows that the Lord’s return is imminent, and he is turning the earth upside down politically and otherwise
- More than ever before, the return of the Lord is very imminent and prominent in God’s agenda
- Mathew 24 is being fulfilled daily:
- WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS,DISTRESS OF NATIONS
- PESTILENCES,FAMINE STRANGE SIGNS IN HEAVEN AND UNEARTH
- FEARFULNESS AND LAWLESSNESS EVERYWHERE
- THE GOSPEL IS BEING PREACHED WITH GREATER INTENSITY AND ZEAL
- But God is also judging the gods of this world so the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ can be preached to as many more nations as soon as possible:
- “ And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, to the Lord our God: For true and righteous are his judgments: for he has judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.” Rev 19:1-4
- As the wicked powers are being judged God is also purging His Church and pre paring us for the RAPTURE
- This is so because the RAPTURE of the Saints isthe next agenda for the earth on God’s calendar”
And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you his servants, and you that fear him, both small and great. And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunder, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he said to me, Write, Blessed are they which are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me, These are the true sayings of God. And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said to me, See you do it not: I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he does judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a clothing dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.And the armies which were in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the wine press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he has on his clothing and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Rev.19:5-21
- The Lord is seriously calling his Church to serious REVIVAL AND PRAYERS
- He is call us to SALVATION,DELIVERANCE, FINANCIAL PROSPERITY ,HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS:
“Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”
- We are to WATCH AND PRAY AND KEEP OUR GARMENT PURE AND HOLY
- There is no more room for backsliding, no more lies ,deceit and unfaithfulness.
- Not only must we keep our garments pure and holy , we must STAY AWAKE SPIRITUALLY
- We must constantly plead the blood of Jesus on our souls and seek God’s help to remain blameless and pure:
“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, and murderers, and idolaters, and whoever loves and makes a lie.”Rev.22:11-15
- We must consecrate ourselves to join the Lord’s army as the powers of this world are being judged
- The Lord of Hosts is with us and He is the Holy One that leads the army in heaven and on earth
- We must put on our garment of praise and rejoicing.
- We must avoid the spirit of heaviness at all costs
- we must put on our white linen and join the heavenly army as we prepare to meet the Bridegroom
- Our white linen is our willingness to consecrate ourselves to live holy and join the Lord’s army
- Finally :
- “ Rejoice ever more.
- Pray without ceasing.
- In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
- Quench not the Spirit.
- Despise not prophesyings.
- Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
- Abstain from all appearance of evil.
- And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
- Faithful is he that calls you, who also will do it.
- Brothers, pray for us.”
- Whenever God hears the voice of his HOLY people in prayer and praises in 2018,He will move into war on our behalf
- He will arise and his enemies will scatter immediately
- He is called JEHOVAH SABAOTH ,THE LORD OF HOSTS and he is also our JEHOVAH NISSI; OUR DEFENCE AND OUR REFUGE IN 2018 AND FOREVER AND EVER AMEN PRAISE THE LORD!!
- Psalm 65:5 must always be our song and righteous expectation in 2018:
“ By terrible things in righteousness will you answer us, O God of our salvation; who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off on the sea:”
- He is leading the heavenly army to victory we must arise and shine in faith, power and great expectations in 2018 in Jesus name

- He will break the shield and the sword and all their weapons of war in 2018
- All the battles will be broken if we ALL CARE TO PUT ON OUR WHOLE ARMOUR IN ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLINESS AND RIDE INTO THE BATTLEFIELD WITH OUR JEHOVAH SABAOTH WITH THE ARMY OF HEAVEN
- “The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. THE LORD OF HOSTS IS WITH US; THE GOD OF JACOB IS OUR REFUGE. Selah. Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he has made in the earth. He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and cuts the spear in sunder; he burns the chariot in the fire Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. THE LORD OF HOSTS IS WITH US; THE GOD OF JACOB IS OUR REFUGE. Selah. Psalm 46:6-11
