Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Christ of God
The most important question on earth is “Who is Jesus for you” Your understanding of Jesus matters a lot. Without a clear understanding of Jesus’ identity one cannot relate with him. In the gospel of Luke 9:18-22
“Jesus was praying alone the disciples were with him; and he asked them, “Who do the people say that I am?” And they answered, “John the Baptist; but others say, Elijah; and others, that one of the old prophets has risen.” And he said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” And Peter answered, “The Christ of God.” This same question our Lord Jesus Christ addressed to his disciples is the same question he is addressing to each and every one of us. He wants to know if we truly understand his true identity. For those who thought Jesus was Elijah, our Lord Jesus Christ is not just Elijah, He is more than Elijah. He is not just John the Baptist, He is more than John the Baptist. He is, as Peter rightly declares, “The Christ of God.” He is the Messiah, the Anointed One. To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!
Prophetic Message: Your Period of Mourning is over!
The book of Ecclesiastes 3:1-11 declares, “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.” Child of God, your period mourning is over! Now is your time of dancing. You will not weep again, you shall laugh and dance for joy. From now, you will be celebrated and it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Master of the Archangels
Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Commander of heavenly and earthly forces. He is the Lord of the angels and the master of the Archangels. In the gospel of John 1:47-51 Jesus said to Nathanael, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.
Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” Jesus answered him,
“Because I said to you, I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these ” And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.” In this passage Nathaniel acknowledged Jesus as Rabbi, the Son God, and the King of Israel. Jesus told him that he is not just the king of Israel He is also the King of heaven and earth. And above all, the Commander of heavenly and earthly forces, the Master of the Archangels. To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!
Prophetic Message: Your Dominion with Christ Jesus is an Everlasting Dominion
Our Lord Jesus Christ is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He is the Alpha and Omega God. His Kingdom and his dominion is an everlasting dominion. The Prophet Daniel 7:9-14 narrates what He saw concerning our Lord Jesus Christ: “I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. And to him was given dominion and glory and kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed.” Child of God, as long as you are connected with our Lord Jesus Christ, you shall share in his divine dominion. Your dominion with our Lord Jesus Christ is an everlasting dominion. With our Lord Jesus Christ, all peoples will serve you, and it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Universal Saviour
Some people are trying to colonize Jesus. Some are even trying to reduce him to their own personal Lord and Saviour. For them, Jesus is their personal person. He is not the Saviour of others. In the gospel of Mark 9:38-48 John said to Jesus, “Teacher, we saw a man casting out demons in our name, and we forbade him, because he was not following us.” But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him; for no one who does a mighty work in my name will be able SOON after to speak evil of me. For he that is not against us is for us.” What John did is what most Christian denominations are doing today. Those who call themselves Redeemed believes that they are the only ones Jesus came redeem other are doomed. The Chosen believes that they are the only ones our Lord Jesus Christ has chosen, others are the rejected ones. The Deeper lives believes that they are the only ones that are living authentic lives others are living a shallow lives. The Christ Embassy see themselves as the only Ambassadors of Christ whereas the Winners see themselves as the only one that will win with Christ Jesus. These are way people are trying to reduce the Salvation of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Salvation of Christ is universal. It is not limited to any denomination or any person as John thought in today’s gospel. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Universal Saviour. He is the Saviour of all Denominations and even all religions. He is the Saviour of Heaven and earth. To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!
Prophetic Message: You shall prophesy!
The Lord declares through the Prophet Joel 2:28 “Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams” This was exactly what happened in the book Numbers 11:25-29 where the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to Moses, and took some of the spirit that was upon him and put it upon the seventy elders; and when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied… a young man ran and told Moses, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.” And Joshua the son of Nun, the minister of Moses, one of his chosen men, said, “My lord Moses, forbid them.” But Moses said to him, “Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the LORD’S people were prophets, that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!” Child of God, it is your turn to shine! From today and as long as you are connected with the Holy Spirit, you shall prophesy! God will surely use you as his instrument. And it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!
Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Nazarene
In the gospel of Matthew 2:13-15.19-23 Joseph was told in a dream, “Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there till I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him. ‘’ and he rose and took the child and his mother by night, and departed to Egypt, and remained there until the death of Herod… But when he heard that Archelaus reigned over Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there, and being warned in a dream he withdrew to the district of Galilee. And he went and dwelt in a city called Nazareth, that what was spoken by the prophets might be fulfilled, “ He shall be called a Nazarene.” This is one of the famous titles of our Lord Jesus Christ. When Philip introduced Jesus to Nathanael, he said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” (John 1:46). At the Garden of Gethsemane when the soldiers wanted to arrest Jesus, he asked them, “Who is it you want?” They replied “Jesus of Nazareth” Jesus said, “I am he,” When Jesus said, “I am he,” they drew back and fell to the ground.” (John 18:4-6). The title ‘Jesus of Nazareth is indeed a powerful title. At the mention of this title every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!
Prophetic Message: The Spirit of the Lord shall come upon you
In Isaiah 11:1-10, the Lord declares, “There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots. And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord.” At the early stage of his ministry, our Lord Jesus Christ declares, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor…” (Luke 4:18). With the spirit of the Lord upon him our Lord Jesus Christ was able to preach the gospel, he was able to set the oppressed and the captives free, He even raised the dead. Child of God, the Spirit of the Lord is upon you! With the Spirit of the Lord the impossible shall become possible. You shall succeed in all your endeavours. And it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Master of the Angels
Our Lord Jesus Christ is the friend of the Little ones. He is the Defender of the defenseless and the voice of the voiceless. In the gospel of Matthew 18:1-5,10, he said to his followers, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me. See that you do not despise one of these little ones; for I tell you that in heaven their angels always behold the face of my Father who is in heaven.” Our Lord Jesus Christ is not just the friend of the little ones he is also the Master of the angels and indeed the master of the universe. To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!
Prophetic Message: The angel of the Lord will surely Guard you
The book of Exodus 23:20-23 declares, Thus says the LORD: “Behold, I send an angel before you, to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place which I have prepared. Give heed to him and listen to his voice, do not rebel against him, for he will not pardon your transgression; for my name is in him. “But if you listen attentively to his voice and do all that I say, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries. “My angel will go before you…” The angels are meant to guard us in all our ways. They are our spiritual guardians and that is why they are called our guardian angels. Child of God, from today, the Lord will release his angels upon you. They will guard your going out and coming in. And Psalm 91:11 declares God will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. “On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone” (Psalm 91:11-12). Child of God, with the angel of the Lord around you, you have nothing to fear. Your life is well secured. Nothing shall ever harm you. and it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Master of Missionaries
A missionary is someone called and sent by Jesus Christ just as He was sent by God, His Father. In the gospel of Matthew 22:14 our Lord Jesus Christ said, “Many are called but few are chosen” This was exactly what happened in the gospel of Luke 9:57-62 where a man came to Jesus and said, “I will follow you wherever you go.” Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head.” To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” But he said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” Another said, “I will follow you, Lord; but let me first say farewell to those at my home.” Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plough and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.” With this wisdom exhibited by our Lord Jesus Christ it is obvious therefore that our Lord Jesus Christ is indeed the master of missionaries. He knew those who have the right vocation. He told his disciples, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain” (John 15:16). Our Lord Jesus Christ did not choose us to impoverish us. He chose us in order to enrich us. He wants us to be fruitful. With him on our side and with our fruitfulness, God’s name will be glorified forever in Jesus name – Amen!
Prophetic Message: The Lord is your Strength
One with God is majority. If God is on your side, victory is on your side, favour is on your side, strength and power is on your side. Every good thing is on your side. In the book of Job 9:1-12, 14-16, Job answered his friends: “Truly I know that it is so: But how can a man be just before God? If one wished to contend with him, one could not answer him once in a thousand times. He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength —who has hardened himself against him, and succeeded?— he who removes mountains, and they know it not, when he overturns them in his anger; who shakes the earth out of its place, and its pillars tremble. Child of God, you are not alone! You are serving a great God. He is the Mighty Man in battle. The Lion of the tribe of Judah. He is the ocean divider. With him on your side, your life is secured. And it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Lord of the Harvest
In Luke 10:1-12 “The Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come. And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.” The Lord of the Harvest is the One who own the harvest. He is the Creator of heaven and earth. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He is the One who will judge the world on the last day. he is the One who sent his disciples to preach the gospel of God’s kingdom, the One who sent us to heal the sick and give without charge. To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!
Prophetic Message: Your Redeemer Lives
Job discovered the glory of God through suffering. He did not allow his suffering to pull him down. He did not even allow his ugly situation to make him doubt the existence of the Most high God. After all said and done, in Job 19:21-27 he exclaimed, “Oh, that my words were written! Oh, that they were inscribed in a book! Oh, that with an iron pen and lead they were graven in the rock forever! For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at last he will stand upon the earth; and after my skin has been thus destroyed, then from my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see on my side, and my eyes shall behold, and not another.” Our God is alive! Child of God, no matter the situation you may find yourself, always remember that your Redeemer lives. You are not serving a dead God. And as long as your Redeemer lives, you too, you shall live. The forces of death is not for you. It shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!
