2 Peter 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy
- The beginning of a new year is often the period several people are interested in predictions and prophecies.
- People want to know their fortunes in the year.
- Prophets, fortune tellers, and soothsayers are therefore in high demand this season.
- But the Bible tells us that the word of God is prophetic. What the word of God says about your life, is all the prophecies you need for the year.
- It means you dont need a prophet. You are your own prophet. All you need to do is to study and meditate on what the word of God says about your health, prosperity, protection, divine provision, help etc and pray prophetically on it.
- I know the word of God says in Job 36 vs 12 that for those who obey and trust the Lord, they shall spend their days in pleasures, and their years in prosperity.
- As you obey His commandments and trust in Him, my prophecy is that you will spend this year in pleasures and prosperity in Jesus name.
- You can predict your future by the extend of your obedience to the word of God. With the word of God, you can also prophecy to your future, and it shall surely come to pass in Jesus name.

READ Joshua 1:1-9
Welcome to year February 2009. One implication of Jesus as Alpha is that you can have a new beginning in any area you failed or lost hope. Another implication of this Name is that being the Beginning, you can have the power to start anything He wants you to. Many fail or remain where they have always been, not because they do not know what to do, but because they lack the power to start.
Some have brilliant ideas that could turn around their lives; but they cannot go beyond that point. Some are afraid to leave where they are for the new place or assignment God has sent them. You need to be introduced to the Beginning. He will give you the power to start. Those powers are stronger then fear. It is stronger than any weaknesses or limitation.
Have you faced severe challenges in taking a new appointment, assignment or starting a new business? You are not alone. When a messenger. After the death of Moses, God told Joshua, Moses’ messenger, that he was now to take on the mantle of leadership for millions of Israelites. Even though Moses has earlier prayed for him, he did not receive the news in good faith. How can a messenger suddenly become the father of a nation?
What of the 70 elders and all the other leaders under Moses? Joshua was afraid. Some promotion can cause fear. In fact, some people have refused to accept certain promotions because they are afraid. Some think they cannot cope. Some think envious colleagues could kill them on that seat. But all they need is The Beginning.
When you see yourself in such a situation, call on The Beginning to reveal Himself to you see you through. The time to turn down big openings from God has passed.
The Beginning is with you. Fear not to go into that marriage partnership with that brother or sister. It is the Lord, not your flesh, friend or relative has led you. He will give you the courage and make all provisions available for you to succeed. Ask the Alpha to reveal himself as the beginning to you from today. Whatever you do this new year, let the Beginning guide you.
Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase. (Job 8:7)
