God has given me the charge to blow the Trumpet and announce to whom it may concern “a new era of Apostolic manifestation is upon us”. There are nations, congregations and individuals who will be propelled into prominence in this era. These are the people who will receive this glad tidings and keep them as their treasure from God. Remember , God will do nothing except He reveals His secret to His servants, the Prophets.( Amos 3:7-8). In Jeremiah 1:11-12, God asked “Jeremiah, what do you see?”. Jeremiah answered “ I see a branch of an almond tree”. God replied, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform my word”. The key here is that you must see well to do well. There is something God wants us to see well in this new era if we are to do well to Glorify God. What does God want us to see? God wants us to see what He has prepared for those who love Him. The Bible says “eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man, the things that God has prepared for those who love Him”.(1Cor.2:9).
When God called Abraham, He promised him and his descendants a land flowing with milk and honey.( Genesis 12:1-3). That land became known as “the promise land”, which today hosts the nation of Israel. It must be understood that the earth is the Lord’s and He has the right to give any part of it to whoever He chooses.(Psalm 24:1). God always kept “the promise land” before the eyes of His people until the day Joshua led them to enter into it to confirm God’s faithfulness. 1 Thessalonians5:24 says ,”Faithful is He who has called you, and He also will do it”.
What God gave to Israel belongs to Israel. But God has a plan to give to all who become His children through faith in Christ a spiritual inheritance. Romans8:32 says “ He who did not spare His son, but freely gave him up for us all, how shall He not with him freely give us all things?”.
Through Christ we have become partakers of a spiritual promise land-the promise land of Apostolic manifestation. God has given us a promise of entering this promise land of Apostolic manifestation and the Holy Spirit is leading us to enter into it at this hour. We are living in dangerous times but God has an answer for these times in the release of Apostolic mantle to empower His PEOPLE TO DO EXPLOITS in Jesus name. Daniel 11:32 says “the people who know their God shall be strong and do exploits!”
We are the people who will be strong by reason of the Apostolic mantle falling on us. The world will see the rise of a strong people who will lift their voice and say “Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered!” ( Psalm 68:1-3).
God has placed before us the Promise Land of Apostolic manifestation, so we may enter in and experience the height and depth and length and breadth of the Apostolic mantle to “manifest the Real Jesus” who is the desire of all nations. Every heart and every nation desire to know the Real Jesus who saves to the uttermost. Because He paid the price for all, He desires all to come to Him and be saved! Individuals who enter the Promise Land of Apostolic manifestation will receive the Apostolic mantle to turn their nations upside down. Nations where Apostolic mantles fall will experience rapid social, spiritual and economic transformation in Jesus name!
God is asking us today what He asked Jeremiah many years ago, “ What do you see?”. I pray for your eyes to open, to see The Promise Land of Apostolic manifestation ahead of you and to see yourself settled in it to experience the full dimension of the Apostolic mantle. And with this God will say “You have seen well, and now you will do well”.
