And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles (Deu.31:10).
“IT'S NOW OR NEVER!” These were the words I awoke to on New Year's Day. The following is a brief summary of a prophetic encounter I had with the Lord: The decisions we make this year especially in the first quarter of this year will have profound ramification on the next fourteen years of our lives.
It is well known that some years are more significant than others in terms of the affect that they have on our lives. I can look back over my life and pick out certain years where the decisions I made in those years were pivotal and the consequences unchangeable. Times and seasons are a part of God's way of dealing with us, opportunities come and pass. God limits Himself to times and season in the way He deals with us and if we miss a season in God many years can be wasted.
Consider the scriptures:
- To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven (Ecc. 3:1).
- Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation. (Lk. 19:42-44).
