The following is a Word from the LORD that Pastor Joseph Enyimu received in the morning hours of 13th July, 2021 for the ALFC congregation and the Body of Christ at large.
Has God not said “…behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.” The present 42-days of lockdown is a telling sign of the shifting spiritual climate and the divine assignment upon our generation.
God has said to us, “you are that generation that will usher in the manifestation of God’s greater salvation for the nation; salvation at a scale and speed unknown before. You are eye-witnesses of this latter and greater salvation just as the 12 disciples were eye-witnesses of the manifestations of Jesus – God’s unprecedented salvation upon Israel and the nations.”
That is it. It took 42 generations for the fullness of time to come; the time for Jesus to be revealed in the earth as God’s ultimate salvation for Israel and the nations. These 42 generations came and went in 3 cycles of 14 generations. Today (2021), our nation’s population is 42 million people. As a people, we have multiplied 3-fold in one generation – from the first cycle of 14 million people in 1986 to the third circle of 42 million in 2021. Consider this 3-cycle pattern and 14-demographic factor a confirmation sign of a new season of peace and prosperity in the nation.
Likewise, consider the epidemiological pattern of COVID-19 (1 cycle in 14 days) as the kingdom of darkness mounting a counterattack on the on-going move of God using the law of reciprocals – something that works exactly the same way on both opposite sides. As we pray for the healing and recovery of the nation, watch for the spiritual dimension of the 42-day lockdown (3 cycles of 14 days) that has correctly been put in place to stem the spread of the coronavirus. Lay hold of the good that God has for the nation in this new season.
Yes, it is about generational perfection and generational unity under the Trinity. It is about generational peace and prosperity. God is saying to us, “you are that generation that I have favored and set apart for a time such as this. A time to look upward for the wisdom to go forward where it seems, for many, there is no way. Go forth and spread the knowledge of my glory. Cover and transform the nation with the knowledge of my glory in the same way that the waters cover the sea and transform the nations.” Have I not said to you in my Word, “…arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon you”? Beam your light for your generation, and be that bridge of prosperity for the generations to come.
