"Then He who sat on the throne said,
‘Behold, I make all things new.'"
(Revelation 21:5)

Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because He who sits on the throne declares that He makes all things new for me! I will behold His power in my life as I allow the renewal process to take place without any fear of the unknown. I can begin again! I am a pioneer! I am not afraid to explore new territory!

Today I will accept new beginnings in every area of my personal world, even if they challenge all of my comfort zones. I will embrace the now, with no unnecessary allegiance to the past. My only obligation is to the now. My only interest is in the now. My total focus is on the now.

Today I will share the concept of new beginnings with others, as I allow them the grace to start over. I will not bind others with the words "you always . . ." or "you never . . .;" I will give them the gift of new beginnings, and I will reap in my own life what I sow into theirs. I will live in the now and love in the now. I will give someone who has disappointed me another chance.

Today I will see the chaos and disorder around me as a necessary means to a new beginning. I will not be moved by what I see. What would normally appear to me as a negative circumstance or situation will be seen by me today simply as the natural messiness of the birth process.

Today I will not be afraid to embrace the essential experience of death in my life -- to die on one level, so that I can be resurrected to the next one. "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain" (John 12:24). I will celebrate the mercy killing of all that needs to die in me.

Today I will rethink an old problem. Because of the possibility of new beginnings, I will be proactive and innovative in my approach to that which has been all too familiar. The prospect of beginning again will resurrect hope in me.

Today I will open a new chapter in the book of my life. I will learn something that I did not know before (or didn't know that I knew); I will think a new thought . . . speak a new word . . . sing a new song . . . pray a new prayer. I make the choice today to live in a world full of new beginnings as darkness is replaced by dawn, and winter is replaced by spring. Today is a new beginning for me, and today I will live in the now!

Father, help me to believe for new beginnings today. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Word of the LORD for Newness of Days!!!!!

Thursday Evening
01 January 2004 @ 1825 Hours

(Part 1)

Behold, for this marks the beginning of Greater Expectations in me, declares the Lord of Hosts. Not only are my people prompted to expect new and greater revelations in me, but also I shall expect greater works from my people, yet their works are not to be exchanged for the time they commune in intimate relationship with me. I have required my people from this point forward to leap out of the boxes that have hindered and bound them and to step out of the boats if they desire to walk on the water with me, says God. Selah… No greater things have been seen than those things that are to come about in this new season. For truly I say unto thee, that this is a new day, a new year, a new order, a new paradigm, a new glory, and new visitations of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, nothing shall ever be again as it was before; the pace has been escalated to shake up stagnation and drive out folly with earth-shattering forces of the Holy Spirit. I come unto my people at this very hour with a spirit of urgency, that everything is brought to a halt and I secure undivided attention, declares the Lord of Hosts. As the praises of my precious people ascend to the heavens more rapidly than ever before, their praises will meet center mass with my glory! My people shall then look for the enemy and the enemy will not be found. There is no greater glory than that, which I shall show thee immediately, says God. My people must brace themselves while becoming firmly grounded, for my glory shall blow the lids off and crumble the foundations underneath the feet of humanity, says God. Hearken my voice and receive my outpouring which shall abide with you all the days of your life and you shall dwell faithfully in the presence of the Lord thy God forever more. Amen.

Those who stand the tests of faithfulness in the times of hardship and adversity, I shall reward them greatly, declares God. Though adversity has attempted to bind them on every side, their faith in me has kept my people strong and empowered to tread upon the heads of serpents. I have poured out my spirit and those whom seek me first while acknowledging me in all their ways have been provided with keys to unlock the deep things leading to overflowing wealth. The deep seeks out the depths, for only in the depths are these treasures harvested with availability and capacity to flow. Selah… Revelations are unfolding right now, so wait upon me- the Lord Almighty and all these things shall be manifested, declares God. Amen. Sudden change is on the brink!

Stand up and boldly proclaim that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and you shall have whatever you say, ask, or think as you operate in the principles and precepts of God. Those who believe that they are born to reign and live in wealthy places and have seen themselves from childhood traveling throughout the world, says God—I impart these visions into them that they may grow in faith and faithfulness, submitting themselves entirely to my will, walking in obedience, and thereby receiving the blessing and provision! Selah… Every place the soles of their feet tread upon- even if it is in dreams and visions, I shall grant it as new territories! Fasten your seatbelts, for the glorious destination is the Promised Lands, says God. Just as King David declared, “I once was young, but now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or God’s seed out begging for bread.” Hallelujah for revelations unfolding. Wait, I say upon the Lord and all these things shall be made tangible.

{PART 2}

The Glory Train is boarding, and those whom obey me and worship me in humility, spirit, and truth are decreed as first class passengers, whereas many others will have to move aside and make way as my people approach. For I- the Lord thy God have humbled them greatly that they may keep remembrance that it is not by might, nor by power, but by way of the Holy Spirit that these honors have been received. Great and mighty am I- says God and forever faithful. The volume has been amplified so all will hear my spirit approaching within my people even when the do not make a sound, as the highest favor shall resonate from head to toe, says God. Continue to walk in faith and know that I have not brought you thus far to leave you and those places that I brought you to, I shall escort you through, blanketed by clouds of the Holy Spirit. Lift up thine eyes to heaven and thank me for all things great and small. Those who continue in obedience even down to the smallest details, I shall reward that much greater, says God. My goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life and you shall dwell in the presence of the Lord Almighty forever. Amen.

Clap your hands- all ye’ nations and lift up your voices in triumph, for you have received the victory. Keep yourselves holy unto me and I shall reward you greatly. Die daily to the flesh / carnal mindset and never cease to seek my presence for a heart check that the Holy Spirit may consecrate, strengthen, and purge out iniquity to withstand transgression, declares the Lord Jehovah. Selah… The people whom I have called according to my name shall experience the fullness of my glory. Those whom are dragging their feet on things that I have strongly instructed them to do, they shall be dealt with swiftly and then be connected with wise counsel that there may accountability factors in their lives for their own safety, protection, and overall well-being , says God. Rejoice, for my miracles and outpourings are enroute to thee. Blessings, breakthroughs, and deliverance have arrived. Furthermore, says God, be on watch for unexpected visitors whom shall declare their heartfelt intentions and notions of repentance, says God. Many shall seek you out and you shall not be left empty-handed. They shall be blessed also as they are purified through the Holy Ghost Fire.

New Beginnings! Getting out of the way so others may see the Lord. Some will not like it but I will live having done it. I'm going to begin living that abundant life that God promised me and I've not been utilizing.

As I sat praying on last night I saw the door opening and I could hear the voice of God saying SEE! I have given you your heart desire. Now that's worth shouting about. WHOOPEE, thank you 2009 for pushing me into a marvelous 2010.

P Nancy said...

A new beginning for sure! Thank you Bishop and COHS--
"What threatened you in 2009 will protect you in 2010"...I totally loved that word. Everything about 1 Samuel 21:9 -The priest replied, "The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom you killed in the Valley of Elah, is here; it is wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod. If you want it, take it; there is no sword here but that one." David said, "There is none like it; give it to me."


Happy New Year!

Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because the same God who revealed Himself to Moses as "I AM" is revealing Himself to me in the same way. He is speaking to me in the now because I live by every word that proceeds from His mouth. I am standing on holy ground today

Today my revelation of God as the "I AM" will give others around me the courage to live in the now. The atmosphere of peace and liberty that my faith will create will encourage them to be who they are. Today I will be a burning bush for them, with God speaking through me, and today I will live in the now!

Father, reveal Yourself to me as the “I AM” in a new way today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
