2015 Year in Review
The year 2015 was filled with challenges and triumphs. I am grateful to God for giving me more positive things in my life. I have learned to allow God to be the manager or government of my life and to be fully obedient to Him (Isaiah 9:6)
Consequently, the Lord has given me full protection and a peaceful life. I shared my experience with you on this blog throughout the past year, and I hope that you will find my posts encouraging.
I want to revisit some of those articles that have been a blessing to me, and I hope they will bless you also. The posts are highlighted so click on it and share my journey to become the oil and wine.
The year of Jubilee.
Becomingtheoilandwine began the year 2015 with a bang! The Lord declared that it was the year of Jubilee – a year of brokenness and healing – a year of releasing and giving. It was also the year when we begin our daily devotion giving thanks to God for His many wonderful blessings throughout the years.
Although the news in the media is most times alarming, we need to get closer to God because He will never forsake us. Sometimes you have to stand alone to make the right decision but His love is merciful and He will keep you in His love because God’s love is forever.
Are you searching for true love? You will certainly find it in heaven. But, before you can love anyone else, even God, you must first learn to love yourself. God’s perfect love will never fail and is unbreakable.
It is important that you do not judge someone by their outward appearance but learn to know everyone by their spirit. When you apply this rule in marriage, you will not be disappointed, and you will shed no tears within your marriage.
Life is wonderful when you live it for God. I have had a full and rich life in God. He is my everlasting Father, and He also blessed me with an earthly father. The Lord has also placed a Virgin and a Doctor in my life to teach me patience and humility.
It is only one simple step to a more prosperous life so walk safely and enjoy an abundant life. Many friends and family have been cut off unexpectedly from this earth but we cannot give up we must press on. The Lord promised that you can find the good in the midst of tragedy.
Resurrection and life
Oh, death where is your sting? There is indeed hope beyond the grave so move up to a high level in God. There is nothing too hard for the Lord so He can definitely put your life in the right perspective.
It does not matter if you are a man or woman; the Lord will reward you for your noble character. Women are blessed with wisdom and the spirit of discernment. God is also calling the women for greater work for such a time as this.
Where is my beloved?
Ensure that your life is in order by controlling your feet and ensure that you align your desire with God’s desire for you. You are already a winner so graduate to a higher level in God and prophesy over your life.
The young men and ladies need to follow the path of righteousness by speaking words of power over their lives; making the right choices so that you can overcome peer pressure. Avoid chasing after senseless dreams, put God first place in your life and stand firm in your faith.
You are a vessel of great honor so flee youthful lust and attach yourself to the vine. Remain connected to God and do not disconnect yourself even when you are on vacation and you might want to let down your hair for a while.
Return to the characteristics of a child.
Every adult needs to return to their childhood and emulate the characteristics of children because the Lord states that if we do not become a child, we will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Many people are worried about their taxes, but the King’s children are not taxed. If you are not a child of the King, you can rise to answer the call and become one. It does not matter if your status in life is as high as the Pope; you still need Jesus in your life.
God has a plan for you regardless of your age.
I was 47 years old when I discovered the call that God has on my life, and I am walking in obedience to His call and learning to accept my jubilee. I have also discovered the key to a healthy life and how to relax in God.
When we get older, the body gets weaker, so we need to strengthen ourselves with healthy food and live in the Word of God because the Spirit gives life.
Reapers are urgently needed to harvest the millennial generation because it appears as if we are in jeopardy of losing them. Do you believe that we will?
Signs of the time
The signs of the times are evident in the world. We are living in the great tribulation, but we do not need to fear because we can cast out fear with love. We have also embarked upon a new era. It is God’s time and His time brings great power.
We join our hearts together to pray for France, Kenya and other countries where terrorism are rampant. We are also praying for the unity of the church so that we can stand together and destroy the enemy.
Christ has already won the victory, and He is our High Priest, who intercedes to the Father on our behalf. We are, therefore, free to meet the Lord at the mercy seat of grace and possess our promise land.
As we enter the month of December, we become startlingly aware of how fast the time is passing. Many of you may panic when you realized that you have not accomplished much during the year, and have suffered many failures.
Success begins in your mind, so think positively.
The Christmas season is a time of rejoicing and family gathering, but it can also be a lonely time that is filled with suffering. Therefore, think soberly, avoid overspending and give to the poor and needy.
Blessings in the New Year.
