Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Eye of the Blind
Blindness is most hopeless case in the world. A blind man cannot see the beauty in the world. He cannot see or differentiate the colours in the world. A blind man move out freely. He cannot even see dangers when they are coming. Our Lord Jesus Christ came to give hope to all including the blind. According to the gospel of Matthew 9:27-31, As Jesus passed on, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.” Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be done to you.” And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly charged them, “See that no one knows it.” But they went away and spread his fame through all that district.” With this miracle our Lord Jesus Christ did not prove himself as a great healer. He also proved to the world that He is the Eye of the blind. He is the Eye that the blind use to see. he is the restorer of sight. He is the Vision of the visionless and the Voice of the voiceless. To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!
Prophetic Message: You Shall Not be put to Shame
Shame is not for God’s children! he book of Isaiah 29:17-24 declares, thus says the Lord, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob: “Jacob shall no more be ashamed, no more shall his face grow pale. For when he sees his children, the work of my hands, in his midst, they will sanctify my name; they will sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel. And those who err in spirit will come to understanding, and those who murmur will accept instruction.” Child of God, your period of shame is over! You shall no more be ashamed! Your enemies will no longer laugh at you. From today, your life will bring glory to the name of the Most High God. And it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Holy Son of God
Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of the Immaculate Virgin Mary. He is also the Son of the Most High God. In the gospel of Luke 1:26-38 the Archangel Gabriel said to our Mother Mary, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there will be no end.” And Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I do not know man?” And the angel said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God.” Indeed our Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of the Most High God. he is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, the Holy Son of God. To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!
Prophetic Message: You are Blessed with Spiritual Blessing
Children of God are destined generation. we are all destined for the praise and glory of God. We are also destined for divine blessing. In his letter to the Ephesians 1:3-6, 11-12 St. Paul declares, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. He destined us in love to be his sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace which he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In him, according to the purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of his will, we who first hoped in Christ have been destined and appointed to live for the praise of his glory.” Child of God, as long as Jesus Christ is concerned, you are no longer under a curse. indeed, you are blessed in Christ Jesus with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. The Lord has chosen you to be holy and blameless. He has destined you to live for the praise of his glory. Through you God’s name will be glorified and it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: John the Baptist: the Herald of Christ Jesus
An ordinary man cannot announce the coming of a great man. It takes a great man to announce the coming of a great. The greatest man of all those that were born of women was the man who announced the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. According to the gospel of Luke 3:1-6 “The word of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the wilderness; and he went into all the region about the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.” Indeed, with the coming of Christ Jesus all flesh have seen the salvation of God. Through John the Baptist God prepared a way for the great Messiah, the Man with a difference! The Most Powerful Man of earth. The Alpha and the Omega. To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!
Prophetic Message: You shall be called Peace of Righteousness
The Lord God has remembered you! He has come to remove your garment of sorrow and affliction. The book of Baruck 5:1-9 declares, “Take off the garment of your sorrow and affliction, O Jerusalem, and put on for ever the beauty of the glory from God. Put on the robe of the righteousness from God; put on your head the diadem of the glory of the Everlasting. For God will show your splendour everywhere under heaven. For your name will for ever be called by God, “Peace of righteousness and glory of godliness.” Arise, O Jerusalem, stand upon the height and look towards the east, and see your children gathered from west and east, at the word of the Holy One, rejoicing that God has remembered them. For they went forth from you on foot, led away by their enemies; but God will bring them back to you, carried in glory, as on a royal throne. For God has ordered that every high mountain and the everlasting hills be made low and the valleys filled up, to make level ground, so that Israel may walk safely in the glory of God.” Child of God, indeed the Lord has remembered you! Your level has changed! Even your title has changed. From nobody your name shall be called “Peace of Righteousness.” You are indeed a channel of peace. Through you people shall experience the peace of God and it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Powerful Healer
There were so many doctors during the time of our Lord Jesus Christ yet our Lord Jesus remained the Most Powerful Healer, the great Physician, the Man with the highest authority. In the gospel of Luke 5:17-26 where they brought to him a man who could not walk. He used the man to prove to the world that he was the Man with the highest authority. With authority he declared, “But that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins”— he said to the man who was paralysed— “I say to you, rise, take up your bed and go home.” And immediately he rose before them, and took up that on which he lay, and went home, glorifying God. And amazement seized them all, and they glorified God and were filled with awe, saying, “We have seen strange things today.” The authority of our Lord Jesus Christ is holistic. He has the authority to forgive sin. He also has the authority to heal the sick. And even the authority to set the captives free. He is indeed the man with the highest authority! To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!
Prophetic Message: The Lord is coming to save you!
The prophet Isaiah 35:1-10 declares, The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad, the desert shall rejoice and blossom; like the lily it shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the majesty of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the Lord, the majesty of our God. Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are of a fearful heart, “Be strong, fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.”
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy.” Child of God, your period of bondage is over! The Lord has finally remembered you. He has come to save you. As he comes in glory, He will surely deliver you from bondage. He will deliver you from the hands of his enemies. he will deliver you from sin and eternal damnation. And it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Most Caring Shepherd
The gospel of Matthew 18:12-14 presents our Lord Jesus Christ as the Most caring Shepherd: “Jesus said to his disciples, “What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go in search of the one that went astray? And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray. So it is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.” There are so many shepherds in the world but there is only One caring Shepherd. He is the Compassionate shepherd, the Most loving Shepherd the world has ever known. To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!
Prophetic Message: Your Period of Warfare is over!
The Lord has come to comfort you. He has come to release from the yoke of suffering and warfare. In the book of prophet Isaiah 40:1-11 the Lord declares, “Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received from the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.” Whatever has a beginning must have an end. As long as children of God are concerned, suffering has an expiring date. Child of God, your own period of suffering is over! our period of warfare is over! Your period of barrenness is over! Your period of sickness and death is over. You are hereby declared free in the name of God the Father, God the Son and God the holy Spirit – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus, the Source of our Inner peace and rest
Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Most caring Man the world has ever known. He cares for all especially those who are heavy laden. In the gospel of Matthew 11:28-30 our Lord Jesus Christ told his followers, “Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” This invitation of our Lord Jesus Christ is for all, especially the oppressed and the afflicted. Our Lord Jesus Christ offers us inner peace and inner rest. He offers us the best thing in life. With this divine rest we have nothing to worry about. As we continue to enjoy this rest and inner peace God’s name will be glorified forever in Jesus name – Amen!
Prophetic Message: The Lord shall renew your Strength
The prophet Isaiah 40:25-31 declares, “Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary, his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” Indeed, our God is an everlasting. He will never grow weary. Child of God, as long as you are connected with this life-giving God, you will not grow weary. The Lord will always renew your strength. You will never faint or get tired. it shall be well with you, in Jesus name – Amen!

Celebration of Christ: Jesus is greater than the greatest
Our Lord Jesus Christ is the greatest Man the world has ever known. God used great prophets kings and Judges to prepare the way for his coming. Among them is the famous John the Baptist whom he described as the greatest man among all those born of women. In the gospel of Matthew 11:11-15 Jesus said to the crowds, “Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has arisen no one greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and men of violence take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John; and if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” Although John the Baptist is the greatest man on earth but he is not greater than the citizens of heaven. Our Lord Jesus Christ happens to be the first Man that came down from heaven. He is therefore greater than all the citizens of heaven. he is also greater than John the Baptist. And so, he is greater than the greatest. To him be glory and praise both now and forevermore – Amen!
Prophetic Message: The Lord will surely Help You
The Lord God is our Helper! In his letter to the Romans 8:26 St. Paul wrote, “The Spirit comes to help us in our weakness” The Holy Spirit helps us in our helpless situation. Also in Isaiah 41:13-20 the Lord made a solemn promise to help us: “I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I will help you.” Fear not, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel! I will help you, says the LORD; your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel. Behold, I will make of you a threshing sledge, new, sharp, and having teeth; you shall thresh the mountains and crush them, and you shall make the hills like chaff; you shall winnow them and the wind shall carry them away, and the tempest shall scatter them. And you shall rejoice in the LORD; in the Holy One of Israel you shall glory. When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst, I the LORD will answer them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.” Child of God, the Lord has promised to help you. As you remain faithful and loyal to the Lord He will surely help you. So, fear not! He is your Redeemer – he will surely redeem you. As the Lord helps you, you shall rejoice and glory in the Lord and it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen!
