Joel 3:9-13 KJV
Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: [10] Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. [11] Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O Lord . [12] Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.

As the month of November was drawing to a close the Lord gently impressed on my heart that the church is in the state of slumber and needed to be awaken to the realities of the spiritual battles of the end of times. Our world is changing at an alarming rate, and bible cultures that defined our collective sanity is being delibrately compromised on the altar of political correctness. The enemy of humanity has moved from subtle manipulations to brazenly challenging our belief in so much so as changing the legal framework to compel compliance. It is important to note that the scriptures had spoken of this time in prophecy.
In Daniel 7:25 (KJV), an account of an agent of the beast contending for dominion over the earth was written. It said:
‘And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to CHANGE TIMES and LAWS: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time’.

The spiritual atmosphere of the earth has changed, changing with it socio-political and financial landscape. The end-time prophecies are unveiling right before our eyes yet multitude are too busy with trivialities to notice the changes around them. This time calls for a season of great spiritual reawakening. The Lord is sounding an alarm to all saints to  awake from slumber.

To help us maximize destiny, God reveals His will by prophetic agenda, expecting His children to align their life plans and programmes with it so as not to be caught on the wrong side of events. People of God hear this: Jugdement is coming upon this world. Every child of God needs to stay awake.

Isaiah 33:13-22 KJV
Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and, ye that are near, acknowledge my might. [14] The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? [15] He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; [16] He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. [17] Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off. [18] Thine heart shall meditate terror. Where is the scribe? where is the receiver? where is he that counted the towers? [19] Thou shalt not see a fierce people, a people of a deeper speech than thou canst perceive; of a stammering tongue, that thou canst not understand. [20] Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken. [21] But there the glorious Lord will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby. [22] For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; he will save us.

God is ever faithful to unveils His agenda on earth to His people so that they can prepare themselves for the challenges and maximize the opportunities every season offers.

On the morning of 22nd  November, 2016 at about 12:20am I started seeking the Lord’s face on how He will lead us in the coming year. As I set myself to receive an insight in to the mind of the God, this scripture came to mind:
Revelation 4:1 KJV
…the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

I became aware that the year 2017 shall be a year of spiritual command, packed with visions and revelations. Every saint that will walk in obedience to the commands of the Holy Spirit shall:
# Gain great access to spiritual illumination.
# Gain access to divine leading and supernatural guidance through visions and revelations.
# Gain access to the secrets of heaven for triumphant living in a changing world.
# Gain outstanding promotions and liftings in business, career and ministry inspite of the realities of the world around them.

Therefore, the year 2017 calls for spiritual awakening to benefit maximally from its opportunity. The higher our levels of spiritual engagement, the greater the possibilities the year would yield. I perceive a huge shake-up in socio-economic template of our society. While natural leaders would be confounded, Kingdom leaders would be emerging in government, science, technology, social and commercial enterprises. Men without reknown, links, coneection will arise purely on God orchestrated platforms to command exploits. Starting from the year 2017, the next few years shall be a period of strategic positioning of saints for the establishment of God’s kingdom on earth preparatory for the return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Starting from 2017, it shall be a time of great spiritual conflict, so the church must be awake, alive and active. Spiritual awakening is the key to surviving in the coming years. Let every saint discountenance the physical situations and oppositions (for they shall be numerous, targeted at distracting the saints). Every one must prepare to engage spirituality at all cost. The reward of spiritual engagement will; by far surpass the input at the end of the year. For every obedient saint, there is but only one way to go: higher, beyond the principalities and powers of this world.

In view of all the above, I hereby reveal to the Rockfaith family worldwide the mind of God concerning you in the new year. The year 2017 shall be to the ROCKFAITH family a year of ‘HIGHER GROUNDS’. Isa. 33:16, Psa. 91:14.

4. You shall not suffer any calamity whatsoever in the name of Jesus.
5. You shall enjoy great speed of accomplishments throughout the new year.
6. Wherever you have laboured with no results before, God’s favour will orchestrate a makeover for you.
7. You shall enjoy God’s great mercy and loving kindness this year also.

You are blessed on the name of the Lord. Amen.

Welcome in to your season of power with God. It is your time to shine. Happy new year  2017.
