A Picture Of The Future Is A Function Of The Scripture
The Scripture contains all you need to have all your needs met. It is the Scripture that you need to have a guaranteed future. No future is established outside the Scripture.
In the Scripture are several pictures of your future. Keys of life are only located when the book of the future is opened in the Scripture. Until you open the Scripture and meditate on the pictures therein, your future becomes frustrating.
I had a turnaround in life when I opened the Scripture and saw where it was written concerning my future.
Hitherto, people thought I was making it, but I was the only one who knew that I was struggling through life. I trudged through the affairs of my life and businesses. Even when I was ordained a Pastor, struggling never left my camp.
Things I Discovered…
I discovered that titles are no guarantee for manifestation in prosperity and all round blessings. God does not reward titles. He only rewards your service in His kingdom and gross adherence to His Words and commandment.
In addition, I discovered that a lot of people fake it in life; they camouflage prosperity: having no need at all; while a closer look will reveal that they have nothing and needs all things.
Furthermore, I discovered that you can acquire the wants of life without solving the needs of life. Wants are shadows but needs are real. Wants are selfish and self-centered while needs are impactful and totally blissful. Wants are liken to ambition while needs are part of vision. Until you locate vision frustration cannot dislocate from you.
A guaranteed future is rooted in the discovery of vision. Life without the discovery of vision is life full of illusions.
Show me the picture of a man who passed through life without locating his vision and I will show you a man whose life was a gross failure.
A man who does not discover vision is not fit to live. Vision is the only force that makes you dominate on earth. Vision is the foundation for transformation. Vision is a prerequisite for manifestation. Vision makes for victory. “No vision, no victory’’. Therefore, the picture of your future is a function of vision. Until you locate vision, your life has no future.
What Happened The Sixteenth Of July 2012
I remembered vividly on the sixteenth of July 2012, at about 5.58 am, when the Lord spoke to me expressly what business was all about. He showed me, in clear terms, what I needed to do in my business to make it prosper sweatlessly.
Listen to what He told me: ‘Business is focusing on what you like’. Hear this: By the special grace of God, I am a trained accountant with second class honours, upper division. I was also trained as a Chartered Manager with the Nigeria Institute of Management. I was also undergoing a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degree from the National Open University of Nigeria, as at then; yet, I had NEVER heard that definition of business or read such from any management, marketing or business book.
Prior to that day, on the fifth of July 2012, right inside the church on the first service at the church where I worship, God revealed to me the mysteries about life that guaranteed my manifestation today. Those mysteries changed my mentality. God told me clearly to do earthly things with heavenly understanding. He also told me, “Go to school physically but with kingdom mentality of divine wisdom”
Without Vision, Your Future Is An Illusion
Dear, I want to say this without mincing words or fear of any contradiction, “Without vision, your future is an illusion”. No one chases shadow and catches it.
Struggling through without an anchor on the Scripture is taking poison without reconsideration. You do not need a Scientist or a Soothsayer to predict the end; you already know it.
Bishop David O. Oyedepo said it correctly, ‘When God thunders from Scripture, it secures your future…. When you hear God, every doubt dissolves…. The reason why you doubt God is because you’ve only heard from preachers and not from God’.
Your certificate in the school of life and success is not a function of your certificate from your higher institution. Parading with your Secondary School or University certificate as the only requirement for your glorification is parading with your casket without knowledge. “…My people are perished for lack of knowledge” Hosea 4:6. Until knowledge (revelation from God) comes into manifestation, glorification is not in view. Stop celebrating your certificate or your grade in school!
I do not care whether you made first class or second class, without a conscious location of God’s assignment for you life on earth, frustration commands your destiny. When this happens, your future hangs precariously on the pendulum of mercy.
A location of vision leads to greater glorification. This is because vision comes with diverse and undeniable proofs; vision guarantees protection. Your life is not secure outside the will of God for you. When you send yourself, you open the door for your manifestation. And that will always be with great difficulty. But, when God sends you, He goes before you and makes all the crooked ways straight (Isaiah 45:2).
Vision makes you to prevail over issues in life ‘and the gates of hell shall not prevail against you’. This is when God is involved! When you are ambitious about life, challenges and problems will prevail over you. Vision brings about provision.
Do you know that when God sends you on an assignment, He pays the price! That’s why I call Him ‘the caller and the doer’. Let’s see this example: assuming you send somebody on an errand, do you expect the person to use his/her money and resources to purchase the article or pay the price for you? No.
This is the same with God. He does not cheat you. When He gives you an assignment, He goes before you to make provisions. Vision is the only anti-dote for failure.
Hear this: failure is inevitable outside vision. God told me that the reason why a lot of businesses and ministries fail is because they are not connected. He told me that they (The business owners) are the ones calling Him but it should be the other way round. God should initiate the journey and lead the way. We are not to initiate and lead the way while He follows us. No. Without His assignment, your assignment is in disarray. It is only vision that terminates failure. Even if you are failure conscious, a location of vision will turn around the hands of struggling and launch you into prosperity and total manifestation.
Have you not read the story of the Israelite? It was God who initiated the journey back to Canaan land, the land flowing with milk and honey. He also assigned a leader, Moses, to lead them. It was God that brought Aaron and Miriam as destiny-helpers to Moses, even Joshua and Caleb. It was God that made the pillar of cloud to lead them by the day and pillar of fire by the night!
At last, it was God that took them safely into the Promised Land, not minding the tough times and bitterness of life they had to fight and overcome.
The Pictures Of The Scripture Are Made For Our Glorification
The pictures of the Scripture are made for our glorification. Stop reading the Bible as if you are reading a story book. The Bible is not a story book but a mystery book. Until Jesus saw where it was written concerning Him, His manifestation was not in view.
Imagine these: For 30 years, He was ministering to the woods, hammer, chisel and other related tools. People at that moment might have been frustrated, wailing, weeping and dying. Yet, He could not do anything. There was no record of anyone Jesus Christ healed before the age of 30 in the Scripture. That meant He was existing like every other natural man.
Let us take a walk through the Scriptures, in the book of Luke chapter four verses fourteen to twenty- two (Luke 4:14-22)
And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee; and there went out a fame of Him… and He taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.
And He came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up; and as his custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read.
And there was delivered unto Him a book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because He had anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He had sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captive, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
And he closed the book. And gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue was fastened on Him.
And he began to say unto them, “this day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears”.
And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious Words which proceeded of his mouth and they said, Is not this Joseph’s son?
Doing what you have always been doing since the inception of your business or ministry is not what guarantees success but doing the right thing at the right time.
Jesus was consistently appearing on the synagogue reading the Scriptures to the people. But, the time for His manifestation was not come. Thus, He was reading the Scripture to them without any tangible proof; except his oratory prowess and ‘sweet voice’.
However, on that fateful day, He found where it was written concerning him…’He found the place it was written, “… and the people that were in attendance were amazed and asked, ‘Is not this Joseph’s son’”?
Hear this: Henceforth, nobody shall see you again and mistake you for poverty, sickness and failures.
Peter in Luke chapter five verses five; after toiling and applying all his smartness, long term knowledge, expertise on fishery, said, ‘… Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing…’
Stop struggling; go for the big picture of your future! There is a purpose for which you are created. There is also an assignment on earth that made God to bring you into this world. You are not a biological accident. You didn’t just happen. You are a product of consciousness. You are a deliberate creature of a great Creator.
Take your time and study the book of Genesis chapter one verses twenty-six to twenty-eight. Hear this:
And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him: male and female created he him.
And God blessed them and God said unto them; be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air and over every living thing that moved upon the earth.
Thus, you are created in the order of God. He Himself has dominion on earth over all the creatures on the earth. If not why did God say:
‘I have said’, ‘‘Ye are gods and all of you are children of the most high?” …” Psalms 82:6-7.
You are a god on earth. God needs your legs to walk physically on earth today. He needs your hands to do things on earth. He needs your mouth to eat physical food. He inhabits in your body. He is the Spirit that makes you a spiritual being. He is in you and you are in him. Thus, both of you are the same. Therefore, whatever He can do, you can do also. It is only what He can’t do that you can’t do. So, get wise and assume responsibilities for your future.
Your future is on the Scripture. It takes revelation not information to locate it. It will also take a conscious study and meditation on the Word for there to be a revelation of the future.
Do you still desire to make it through life? Then, TAKE STEPS NOW!
To Your Success!
