THE NEED TO WEAR THE CORRECT MENTALITY AT THIS PERIOD OF HOLIDAY.
By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola
1 PETER 5:8-9. BE SOBER-MINDED AND ALERT. YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL PROWLS AROUND LIKE A ROARING LION, SEEKING SOMEONE TO DEVOUR. 9RESIST HIM, STANDING FIRM IN YOUR FAITH
The mentality of a kingdom-oriented Saint should be that in this holiday season aligned to the Father’s prophetic objective. The 2022 holiday season highlights a profound need to be adjusted in the right attitude of Soldiers on the field of battle. Many of the things that will shape the outcome of 2023 are already being laid down, but they are happening as an undercurrent war that most people are unaware of.
There is a new apostolic vision that needs to be identified and nurtured by those called to midwife the apostolic initiative of the Third-Day ministry. As we have read in Luke chapter 2:11 for today in the city of David, there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 and this will be a sign for you: you will find the baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” This is a profound revelation that requires a change of attitude, posture, faith and hope in the advancement of the Father’s prophetic agenda.
There are various seeds of kingdom engagement that carry high level authority to shift and change the predominant narrative of the forces of hell in control of our cities and societies.
The need to hear the prophetic announcement of the angels regarding the change of leadership at the gates of human affairs is indeed a thing of great joy, for it is a sign that the will of the people is being carried out. This narrative of joy should be what galvanizes and motivates our sense of warfare in the protection and nurturing of the seed within our hearts until the day of full maturation of Christ’s government in the earth. In other words, we should find joy in fighting for what is right, and this joy should motivate us to protect the good within us until Christ’s reign is fully established on earth.
We need to keep our eyes focused on this vision of heavenly government wrapped in a manger until the fullness of his manifestation to Israel. The seed of the spirit of the Son of man has been sown and reawakened in our hearts again to challenge the seed of serpent lying to the nations. Now, we must take our stand on the side of the Lord, as governmental authority is allowed to develop effectively as a weapon in which we will fight this kingdom warfare before us.
This hour, of all hours, should be a time when we remain vigilant, committed and discerning. The lies and deception of the enemy, who says you’ve been through so much during the year and suggests you remove your armor, is actually a scheme to leave you vulnerable, where you are unable to respond immediately to his strategic attack.
This particular time actually sets the groundwork for some of the most brutal warfare that will unfold in 2023. Therefore, we need to revamp and upscale our philosophy of kingdom identity and mission mandate in prayer.
The stage is being prepared for the Church to enter the next phase of God’s prophetic objective as we move towards 2030. This next phase will lead to a new era where another order will be established on earth.
Saints, I urge you to change your mindset for this next prophetic demand of the Father for this epoch; don’t give in to the pressure and popular religious values out there. Separate yourself by wearing the correct gear of a kingdom regent.
Keep your eyes focused and your heart open to the present demand of the Spirit. Remember, you are like a priest; a watchman on the wall, ordained to keep the City secured from the upcoming unseen battle. No matter where you are at this moment, be certain the Lord approves of such a place, so you can have the peace of mind that God will be with you no matter what the outcome of your current situation may be.
You have been designed and trained to be a combatant, not some weak, ignorant person who can be easily influenced and captured by the scheme of the enemy. Pray and intercede from the position of rest and prophetic grace that connects you to the direction of the coming of the Lord. This way, you can be confident that what is kept under your care is in line with His plans.
Be watchful. You need to be prepared and act like a triumphant member of the Church of the living God. Happy Holiday to all of our friends and followers on all social media platforms.
