You will be Celebrated!

Friends, can you believe that we have already entered the month of March 2014? I believe that God has kept you well and that His promise that this is a Year of Favor is being manifested in your lives. I know you will continue to be favored in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

 

My wife and I are well. We love you and pray that God will continue to bless and keep you. We love hearing from you and appreciate your prayers.

 
This Month, I declare that, YOU WILL BE CELEBRATED!
 

You may ask, how? The prophetic declaration is ….You will be celebrated! God will cause HIS favor to engulf you and that which He has promised you in time past will come to pass.Soon, you will be like a city that is set on a hill that cannot be hidden because the Lord will cause His light to shine on you.

 

We read of a great event that occurred in the Bible, part of which is quoted below. This is a true story. We are told that King Nebuchadnezzer of Babylon, present day Iraq,  established a statue and ordered everybody to bow to it and if not, they would be thrown into the fire. The fire was made seven times hotter than normal. Three Hebrew boys, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, refused to obey and the following is what happened after they had been thrown into the fire…

 

26 Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!” So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire, 27 and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them.28 Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. 29 Therefore I decree that the people of any nation or language who say anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego be cut into pieces and their houses be turned into piles of rubble, for no other god can save in this way.” 30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the province of Babylon. (Daniel 3:26-30)

In the above story, after Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to obey and were thrown into the fire we are told that the fire did not burn them; the king believed their God and they received promotion. This month, refuse to compromise and stand up for righteousness. Refuse to bow to things that others are bowing to; refuse to dishonor your God; refuse to bow to any pressure to commit sin, even if it is coming from powerful persons. Friend, as you do this, the Almighty God will cause you to be celebrated.

 

It is written that the king promoted them. As you stand up for God, you will be promoted and celebrated in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. Friend, there are those that are worried and think that you have lost your mind.  Some are whispering and saying that you are wasting your time serving God. Those people will ultimately declare that your God is indeed God. God will cause a miracle to come your way that will expose you for good and your private resolutions to honor God will result in you being publicly celebrated.

 

The king also ordered that the people of any nation or language who say anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego be cut into pieces and their houses be turned into piles of rubble” Friend, I call this, uncommon protection. Get ready for divine protection for you and your family in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. Anyone scheming evil, their plans will be thwarted as this is your season to be celebrated and divine protection is part of the package. The Bible declares, there is a time to weep and a time to laugh. You will have the last laugh in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

 

Friend, I declare that you are the next that will be celebrated and I also decree, according to Job 5:9, that you will encounter miracles without number and wonders that cannot be fathomed - Get ready to be celebrated!

 
Remain Blessed,
 
Pastor Chester
