THIS CIRCULAR MUST BE READ IN EVERY CORNERSTONE FELLOWSHIPINTERNATIONAL CHURCH, THE LAST SUNDY OF DECEMBER , 2013, THE FIRST SUNDAY OF2014 , AND THE FIRST FAMILY SUNDAY OFTHE NEW YEAR:
Greetings to you all saints, the living stones who are built on this sure foundation of Christ, the elect of the Lord , partakers in this hope and redemption through our savior Jesus Christ.
From the first public reading of this letter, we are already thanking God as we watch the curtain come down for 2013, and we welcome a new year, appreciating God for the gift of life and his mercies that are new every morning.
We remind ourselves the words of Joshua in this posture of gratitude, as we look back into the last year and certainly testify that “ None of the good promises of the Lord failed “.We thank God for granting us territory in many spheres, in the years of occupation. Even as Iam writing, testimonies abound of many that are beginning to set foot into the promise, I urge you to maintain ground, because when God opens a door, no man can close it.
In recent months , my heart has reflected strongly on every facet of our vision statement, like many Christian leaders around the world, we find our hearts deeply gripped by the emergency of counterfeit Christianity, a serious drift from sound Biblical foundations, and the departure from the Judeo –Christian values, upheld by those who passed this faith to us. God truly assured me that his people will survive every wind of deception in our time, if we continue building on the same foundation we were always building on, as assured by 1COR 3:11.
Our visionary mandate was always about “ building the COMMONWEALTH OF FAITH “ upon the sure foundation. In my times of reflection, I came to understand why when Paul was giving the armor of God to the Ephesians, after sharing about other weapons he said “ ABOVE ALL—THE SHIELDOF FAITH” –EPHESIANS 6: 16 .The shield was the largest armor a warrior carried in battle and it covered him from head to toe, fully protecting him and the other armor he was wearing. In 2014, I wish to advise you all that our theme will be –THEPEOPLE OF FAITH- - AND OUR THEME TEXT WILL BE THE WORDS OF JESUS IN MARK11:22-“ HAVE FAITH IN GOD “ .
God truly wants the TRUST LEVEL of his people to rise above casual. Faith is “ BEING FULLY PERSUADED OF THEPROMISES OF GOD”- The commonwealth of Faith will see things happening, because faith always has evidence, because Faith is THE EVIDENCE.
In this year, we will know why ONLY those who believe, can be the ONLY CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM, and why without faith one CANNOT please God, WHY many who received this gospel and DID NOT MIX IT with faith, DID NOT profit but perished, WHY with faith All things are possible. It will matter to understand why Paul called his journey “A GOOD FIGHT OFFAITH”, and why all our tribulations and adversity , are referred to AS “THE TRIAL OF OUR FAITH” . We must understand why it mattered to Jesus to have an answer to the question, “DOYOU BELIEVE I CAN DO THESE THINGS??,before he does them to you- FOR THEJUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH
I believe this year God will raise the people of faith, WHOWILL DARE TO BELIEVE GOD, for the impossible, who will lift their SHIELD before all the fiery darts of the enemy, They will speak those things to be , as though they were, they will trust in God with all their hearts , and never lean on their own understanding, men and women , who will take God at his word, perform exploits, and like Paul before his captors declare –IBELIEVE IN GOD !! ACTS 27:25.
In 2014, we will see man and women who will rise in faith, Their faith will be stubborn and unwavering on God `s word , Their faith will wrestle and travail in prayer, their faith will be considered abnormal, their faith will be considered violent, but their faith will persevere and prevail. As you enter the season of prayer, may your prayers ever be THE PRAYER OF FAITH, that James tells us of.
May you be preserved, soul , spirit and body in this year,
We serve a Covenant –keeping God , who is big and unlimited, his FAITHFULNESS is from generation to generation: ITS YOUR TIME AND YOUR GENERATION -- HAVE FAITH IN GOD!!
