The Almighty God has declared that He would do good to the saints who put their hope in Him as this year is that of reward.
The Lord spoke through the LAWNA Lead Prophet Pastor P.O. Ikpen, the Council Prophet, Pastor J. A. Olabiyi, Surulere Area Prophet, Pastor N. O. Awojide and Oke Ado Area Prophet, Pastor J. O. Olayemi.
It was at the Special First Day of the Year Service held at the LAWNA Territorial Convention Grounds Olorunda, Ketu Lagos, at which saints in their thousands tarried to receive from the Lord the blessings for the New Year.
PRAY FOR PROTECTION
The Lord asked the saints to pray for protection from the fiery whirlwind that would bring wanton destruction of properties, and flood that would sweep off people with their belongings.
“I am telling you that I am your protector and your salvation to deliver you from the storm of the year, saith the Lord”.
PRAY FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENTS
“You will pray so that we may deliver the law enforcement agents from death. I am saying this, giving you as prayer, because of those that are yours in their midst. Otherwise, hear my voice of love; their sins have come before Me for vengeance”.
The Lord assured that He will show mercy, if anyone who ought to receive vengeance repents; “he will be spared, saith the Lord”.
The Church is also to earnestly pray against any devastating clash between the military personnel and the law enforcement agents in the course of the year and that the ship of this government can reach the shore safely. It was added that prayer should be directed at nullifying “pleas from lands afar which cannot bring help, but destruction of souls”.
SPOILS FOR THE REDEEMED
The prophesy said the Lord has arranged a great spoil of war for the redeemed in the course of the year and is faithful in promise to reward us for all the works we have done; declaring, “verily, verily, I will recompense you as reward for your works, for good, saith the Lord”.
He added that the saints would sing that the Lord has returned the captivity of Zion
PRAYER OF FORGIVENESS FOR DESPISERS
The church is also charged with praying for those that despise the work in the territory by labeling LAWNA as overbearing, saying; had these people beheld the glory ahead and the great honour brought to the Glorious Vision in this country and other nations, they wouldn’t have despised. They do not want to work but want to reap.
TRAITORS SHALL NOT BE COVERED; CALL FOR REPENTANCE
“Thieves, deceits and traitors shall not be covered up in the course of the year, saith the Lord. You blasphemers of the authority, your reproach is at hand.
The Lord asked those who are embittered among those being used as instruments for the work because of the proper auditing of the accounts, to repent so that their honour does not become shame.
FIRE OF REVIVAL WILL BRING GLORY
“I have rekindled the fire of My revival, and this cannot but glow and its fame will spread afar.
“I Am giving this authority and power to the servant whom I have established without fear, and with vessels; that shall be given unto you for the work because now is the time to bring out the glory”.
PRAYER AGAINST KILLING IN FAMILIES
He called for prayer for grace, spirit of patience in each family; that there will be no conflict that will result in killing in the homes, and of forgiveness and peace to deliver the people from the impending storm.
THE LORD TO CONFINE THE NATION’S TROUBLERS
“Keep this as a secret. All those who had been troubling the peace of this nation, which you have been praying for; will I keep away, and will be in agony for three years, saith the Lord.
“Nebuchadnezzar of this time will not become a beast in the bush, but shall be confined like a cripple”.
In his own revelation, Pastor Awojide told the saints: “O ye My people it will please Me that you acknowledge Me as your leader and your benefactor”, and called for a week of praise unto the Shepherd of our souls.
CALL TO HOLINESS
“Thus saith the Lord; It is My will that this year, you should renew holiness in My house”, saying holiness is a becoming thing of the past among the saints.
He asked that the saints should let the light chase away darkness adding that leaders who had stood on the side of holiness should not be weary and not allow darkness to take root in the Vision.
MY COMING IS AT HAND
Saying that the coming of the Lord is at hand, The Lord said the redeemed ought not to be shocked “when you pass from one experience to another”.
A YEAR OF BLOOD LETTING
The lord said the year is that of bloodletting, agony and thirst, when husband would not know his wife and wife her husband; a year that the wilderness of it would befall many.
The redeemed of the Lord shall not partake in it because He has a different portion for them, but warned the saints to desist from committing sin, so that they could have portion in the goodness prepared for them.
“You shall eat and be satisfied, do business and have profit and my glory shall be upon you, saith the Lord”.
PRESS ON IN DOING GOOD
The Lord charged those that have stopped doing good to press on, as the year of the redeemed has come just as was proclaimed by the prophet of old, assuring that in this year, He would do you good.
He said those who have been wandering about will have breakthrough, long time barrens will turn into mothers of children.
According to the Lord, the book of remembrance shall be opened before some people in order to do them good like that of Mordecai.
UNREPENTANT WILL BE JUDGED
The Lord warned those who are committing sin and spoiling the church would not have a portion in His goodness as they would be judged.
“If you do not repent, I shall execute judgment on many this year, saith the Lord. Because it is possible that some are confined; they will not die but they will be at home hearing the news of My glory”.
Similarly, the Lord God of hosts has said the year is that of perfection for the saints and they should proclaim it, according to the message through Oke Ado Area prophet, Pastor J.O. Olayemi at the New Year service.
“My goodness in your lives shall be perfected this year as the sun of righteousness is risen upon you”, said the prophet.
He said all those that have covenant with darkness should go and renounce it and those using tools that are against the Lord’s name should stop, so that the sun of righteousness would not rise against them.
He said further that “I Am the hand that writes about your glory”; though the hand of the enemy is writing about those in the world, in the graveyard and in the coffin but ye the redeemed would not partake in it.
“I am your pathfinder on the new land”, said the Lord, asking the saints cast their hope upon Him in the new land, as He has appointed watchmen over the vision.
