“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 KJV
Salvation begins with admitting that you are incapacitated; that you do not sustain the power to save yourself on your own.
Romans 10:9-10 (KJV)
9. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
“And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.”
1 Chronicles 12:32 (KJV)
God is a God of times and seasons. In His dealings with men, He fragmented it into times and seasons.
The Bible gives us three important lessons about the Tribe of Issachar:
1. They were men who understood and maximized times and seasons.
2. They knew what Israel ought to do and possessed uncanny knowledge and strategy.
3. As a result of these, all of their brethren were at their command.
“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:”
Genesis 1:14 (KJV)
1 Timothy 4:1, John 1:48, Acts 16:16-18
The sons of Issachar possessed discernment through understanding.
Discernment is a faculty of spiritual perception.
It is a state in which your spiritual organs have been trained to detect impulses in the realm of the Spirit.
It is the ability to perceive what is going on, even in the cosmos.
The level of discernment in a Believer’s life is one of the indices used to measure spiritual maturity.
No Believer can consistently excel when they are bankrupt of discernment.
God’s voice extends beyond His sounds. It is every possible channel through which God can communicate His will.
In these end times, being dull of discernment is potentially fatal; it could cost you your life.
As a Believer, you must train yourself to step up your discernment in this end time.
It is more important to discern and be in the center of God’s will, than it is to have the wisdom of the wise.
To be of the lineage of Issachar, it is necessary to slow down and be certain of God’s voice for your life before taking steps toward your destiny.
Greener pastures is not a physical location; it is where the voice of God is for you.
Proverbs 3:6-7 (KJV)
6. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct thy paths.
7. Be not wise in thine own eyes: Fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
Initiating anything on your own implies that you have the power to see it through to completion.
God will only accept responsibility for what He initiated.
The order of Issachar is the survival pattern for this season. Every mantle and destiny has a spiritual code.
To perceive the Holy Spirit’s impulses, you must master the art of spiritual perception and be close to the Holy Spirit.
The key to succeeding in this Kingdom is to remain open to hearing God’s voice on any issue.
Any decision that requires you to exclude God isn’t worth your time. Speed without God is a highway to destruction.
The Holy Spirit is a gentle Spirit and His assignment is to restrain you according to your level of yieldedness. It is fearful when God leaves you to yourself
Every level you attain in the spirit realm requires a sacrifice of alignment that commands and maintains dominion per season.
Dominion in the cosmos is strategy dependent.
Do not enter seasons assuming a former strategy. A knife is not always the assigned weapon of war. There are times it is honour.
What brought you victory today can bring you utter defeat tomorrow.
You must obtain a dominion strategy for each prophetic season in your life.
Make no assumptions; Believers win through the strategies revealed by The Spirit.
To ensure consistent results, you must approach God for the strategy of each season.
Pray: Father, open my eyes to see the formula for my dominion for this season.
Believers triumph through God-given strategies.
When you understand and adhere to your unique dealings with God as a Believer, you will wield tremendous power.
Discernment helps you to not only know God but also understand His ways.
Pray: Lord, reveal to me Your strategy for my life and destiny in this season.
Ordinary people who appear supernatural do so because they are treading on supernatural secrets.
Heavenly wisdom yields extraordinary results.
“So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.”
Matthew 24:33 (KJV)
Ezekiel 2:2 KJV
God created lights for different seasons. As a result, there is a sign for each season.
It is critical to ask God for the signs of each season.
When identifying signs for specific seasons, it is critical to understand the spiritual implication of the signs and the role you must play in order to command dominion.
Prophetic Instructions For The Tribe of Issachar to Thrive In The Seasons Unfolding:
1. Let every man be quick/swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger James 1:19-20
Many people abort prophetic seasons and lose their bishoprics because of anger, assuming God is too slow.
Let your words carry power and weight by speaking only when the time is right. Allowing unchecked wrath to control you will cause you to depart from God’s will.
2. Obtain light through the ministry of The Word. Romans 15:4, Psalm 119:30
Refuse to walk in darkness. Do not speak in ignorance; instead, have a biblical understanding and act accordingly.
3. Watch and Pray. Matthew 26:41, Ezekiel 22:30
Believers must pray! To establish dominion in the physical realm, certain things must be settled in the spiritual realm.
4. Reject a victim mentality. John 3:31, Daniel 1:8; 5:10-12; 28-31, Genesis 26:12
To succeed, you must maintain a mindset that rejects being a victim.
In avoiding the victim mentality, do not put your hope in men. All blessings come from God, through men, to men.
Your realities in life are defined by your spiritual orientation. Avoid joining the chorus of negative commentary.
John 1:3, 2 corinthians 2:14, Romans 8:37, Revelation 5:10
Pray: Lord, I obtain grace to receive the strategy allocated for my victory and dominion in this season.
The arrows of bloodshed over you and your loved one, I command it to return back to hell, in the name of Jesus!
