The Holy Spirit says, since this is our 12th year, it will be our year to experience Apostolic Grace and Power. The term “Apostolic” means, “Something that is pertaining to either an apostle or the apostles of Christ: their time, their faith, their peculiar spirit, their practice, etc. So that in 2018 onwards, we shall witness things that are related to and pertaining to the acts of the apostles.
The apostles of Christ enjoyed tremendous grace and power. They were given great power to witness the resurrection of Jesus; great grace was also upon them all.
Things they couldn’t do before were made possible when they received the power of the Holy Ghost.
People that were timid and fearful became bold and courageous.
People that were stark illiterate were able to articulate and construct great sermons that brought thousands of sinners to salvation.
People that could not pray for an hour and could not fast at all were able to pray and fast for days unending.
People who used to quarrel about superiority became equal and knitted together.
People who used to perform miracles only at the errand of Jesus could then perform signs, wonders and miracles at will: they drove out demons, healed the sick, cleansed the lepers, and raised the dead. Some even healed in absentia and unintentionally (Acts 5:15-16; 19:11-12).
Only eleven usual and normal people were able to make a great impact, not only in Jerusalem; but also in the whole of Judea; in Samaria and the Asia Minor.
Therefore, from this year onwards, God says His grace and power upon us shall increase from the levels of followers and disciples to the rating of apostles. Such that we shall begin to experience:
Power to perform signs, wonders and miracles such as we haven’t seen before;
Grace to proclaim Christ before multitudes;
Grace to spend sufficient time in prayers and fasting;
Grace to decree things and they shall be established;
Grace to preach the gospel with boldness and with no compromise;
Grace to declare the gospel before rulers and leaders of the people;
Grace for one accord and to dine with singleness of heart;
Grace for wisdom and tongue that cannot be resisted or matched by men;
Grace for supernatural provision to enjoy and to do God’s work;
Grace to cause a stir of joy and excitement in Leeds and beyond;
Grace to win more souls for God;
Grace to receive direct and uninterrupted revelations from Heaven; etc.
All these and much more shall be ours in this year 2018 in Jesus name. Amen!
