Welcome into the New Year 2017 – the Year of God’s Grace, Goodness and Glory!

Welcome into Year 2017! Only the Creator of Time and Eternity has the audacity to declare what He has designed into any portion of time. We must continue to appreciate, praise, and worship the Almighty God, who kept, protected, preserved, and prospered us through the preceding years, especially the year 2016, and had empowered us to match victoriously into this New Year 2017.

In His divine ordination, for us in Kingdom Capstone Outreach Ministry, the Lord has revealed and summed up the essence of this New Year 2017 in three keywords: Grace, Goodness and Glory! This simple, but profound prophetic theme derives directly from Psalm 84:11 which reads thus:

For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give GRACE and GLORY: no GOOD THING will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.

As always, this New Year is primarily about the Lord God, and secondarily about us. God’s Word always stands sure, whatever may be the stance of human beings. His promises are “Yes and Amen”! For as many as believe in Him and His prophetic Word, the Word always works (2Chr.20:20). As we begin this fresh Journey of Faith, let us keep these Seven Nuggets of Revelation constantly in mind:

The Lord God is Your Sun…

That the Lord God is your Sun means that He is the Ultimate Source of Light, Life, and Radiant Glory. He is your unquenchable Illuminator and Energy-Generator throughout this New Year. Malachi 4:2 describes the Lord as the “Sun of Righteousness” who shall arise “with Healing in His wings” unto those who fear His name – that is, to those who walk uprightly with Him.

As the Almighty God manifests as your Sun, you will “Go forth” and “Grow up” (Mal.4:2). You will experience unhindered divine Progress, Promotion, Elevation, and Enlargement in Jesus name. Just like the physical sun continually nourishes life on earth, so the Sun of Righteousness shall nourish you with the brightest of His Light, the richness of His Love, and the fullness of His Life, in Jesus name.

The Lord God is Your Shield…

That the Lord God is your Shield means that He is your Divine Defence and Supernatural Security! God is saying to you and I, what He said to Abraham: Fear not, Abram: I am your SHIELD, and your exceeding great reward” (Gen.15:1).

You can therefore say with David: But You, O LORD, are a SHIELD for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head” (Psa.3:3). Elsewhere, David declared Him as: “my strength and my shield” and “our help and our shield” (Psa.28:7a; 33:20b; 115:9-11). The Lord is “a shield to those who put their trust in Him” (Pro.30:5). In 2017, will you put your trust in the Lord?

When you sincerely acknowledge God as your Shield, His promises in Psalm 84:4-12 will be yours:

  • You will dwell in His house and never cease to praise Him (vs.4)
  • You will experience divine transformation of every valley of Baca into wells of living water (vs.6)
  • You will go from strength to strength as you consistently appear before God (vs.7)
  • God will hear and hearken to your prayers, and keep watch over you as His anointed (vs.8-9).

The Lord will….

This New Year shall witness the active demonstration of God’s Will – His willingness and action – in all dimensions of our lives. Whenever God says “I will…” no one can ever debar Him! No demon can turn back His Mighty Hand from acting on your behalf!

In this New Year:

  • God will bless you exceedingly
  • God will listen to you attentively
  • God will hear you responsively
  • God will attend to your prayers
  • God will answer you promptly
  • God will avenge you speedily
  • God will rescue you swiftly
  • God will deliver you completely
  • God will defend you absolutely
  • God will heal you totally
  • God will help you early and greatly
  • God will favour you wholly
  • God will speak to you clearly
  • God will correct you lovingly
  • God will direct you distinctly
  • God will instruct you accurately
  • God will guide you precisely
  • God will guard you jealously
  • God will lead you positively
  • God will connect you correctly
  • God will restore you entirely
  • God will anoint you powerfully
  • God will lift you exceedingly
  • God will elevate you highly
  • God will position you honourably
  • God will promote you permanently
  • God will enlarge you extensively
  • God will transform you positively
  • God will announce you conspicuously
  • God will dignify you divinely
  • God will decorate you exquisitely
  • God will crown you gloriously
  • God will perfect all that concerns you!

The Lord will give Grace…

We need Ever-increasing Grace in Life’s Race! In this Year of God’s Grace, Fresh Grace for Life’s Race is our portion. God will give us fresh grace for every new day, week, month, and the entire year. This year, the Lord will give us Greater Grace to ascend Greater Heights, to conquer New Grounds, and possess our Promised Lands. His Grace will cause barriers to bow and giants to fall in Jesus name!

  • Grace is the unmerited favour of God, personalized in the Lord Jesus Christ (Jh.1:14).  
  • Grace is the guarantee of God’s love, concern and compassion for mankind, evidenced in the Lord of creation stooping down to touch unworthy sinners (Gen.3:21; Psa.113:5-6).
  • Grace is God’s divine enablement freely made available to man (Rom.8:32; Eph.3:20).
  • Grace is the divine input that makes up for our human limitations or shortcomings (2 Cor.12:9).
  • Grace – Charis – is supernatural enablement of our gifts, talents, and assignments on earth. Grace adds charisma to our callings. It makes our gifts outstanding; our ministries productive.
  • Grace turns the common into the commendable. The transforming power of grace turned a mere maid into a Star (Esther), and an uneducated fisherman into an Apostle (Peter)!
  • GRACE ushers God’s GLORY into the story of your life, so that your destiny can have meaning!

The Lord will give Good things…

“…No GOOD THING will He (God) withhold from those who walk uprightly” By God’s prophetic Word, “GOODNESS and mercy shall follow” us all the days, week, and months of this year of God’s Goodness in Jesus name(Psa.23:6)! We shall experience, enjoy, and “see the GOODNESS of the Lord in the land of the living” (Psa.27:13). We shall be satisfied with the goodness of God’s house. We begin this year in His goodness and He’ll “crown the year” with His goodness; His paths will drop fatness (Psa.65:4,11).

The Goodness of God will bring me immeasurable GLADNESS and cause His Seed of Greatness in me to bloom and blossom. Standing on the platform of God’s Goodness, I can praise Him and proclaim: “You will increase my GREATNESS, and comfort me on every side” (Psa.71:21).

“Oh that men would give thanks to the LORD for HIS GOODNESS, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!” (Psa.107: 15, 21, 31). May this be our Song all through Year 2017 in Jesus name!

This New Year 2017, God will PERFORM His “GOOD WORD toward you” (Jer.29:10). Jeremiah 31:12 says: “Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all.” God will command the continual flow of His Goodness – provisions, prosperity, Joy, peace, and anointing – into the Gardens of our lives (Jer.31:12).

The Lord will give Glory…

Glory is the representation and manifestation of God’s Personality and Divine Nature. Glory is what sets God apart in a class of His own. Glory is Fullness of Grace and Truth as manifested in God’s Son – our Savior Jesus Christ: “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld HIS GLORY, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father), FULL OF GRACE and TRUTH” (Jh. 1:14).

 “The LORD GOD”, not man, gives GRACE and GLORY. Grace and Glory are like two ends of the same divine ladder. God is the Giver of both, but we receive them differently: “…He giveth GRACE unto the lowly. The wise shall inherit GLORY: but shame shall be the promotion of fools” (Pro.3:34-35).

When GRACE surpasses human description, it becomes GLORY. It is a wonderful but a humbling thought to know that God has called us to be partakers of His divine nature (1 Peter 1:3). We have a Glorious calling: “out of darkness, to show forth His praises under His marvelous light” (1Peter 2: 9).

Grace and Glory are closely related. They both emanate from one Source – the Almighty God!

Our redemptive package in Christ is full of Riches. The Gospel confers on us who believer, the Riches of Redemption: vast, abundant, and wonderful blessings. These include “the riches of His grace” and “the riches of His glory” (Rom. 9:23; Eph. 1:7, 18, 2:7, 3:16; Col. 1:27). This New Year, we are set to partake of these in untold measures – according to our faith!

The Lord demands that we Walk Uprightly with Him…

To enjoy the best of God – His Grace, Goodness, and Glory – in 2017, the covenant requirement is simple and straight-forward: “Walk Uprightly”!  This must be your priority. All that the Lord has said concerning you and yours shall be accomplished this year. All that He has spoken concerning your lives and destinies shall be “made good”!

As for our nation Nigeria, the Lord will not only trouble the troublers of Nigeria, He will arise to bring them into judgement, open disgrace and shame. The Lord will bring restoration to our nation and grant divine direction to our leaders. The rumours of war are silenced and the righteous shall flourish and be fulfilled in the land!

We at the Kingdom Capstone Outreach Ministry (KCOM) stand firm upon the foundation of God’s Eternal Word, to further the cause of the Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ – the King of kings and Lord of lords! We shall continue to passionately publish and proclaim God’s Prophetic Word, with power and proof to prepare the saints for The Lord’s Return! So, help us God! Amen!!

Please keep in touch with us and in tune with our events and ministry programmes via this web-site and on our facebook page. Make Capstone Capsules a key part of your daily devotional nourishment and feel free to download and share our messages, e-books and other life-enriching resources.

Beloved, stand firm on the Word and fervent in the Spirit, and you will experience and enjoy God’s GRACE, GOODNESS, and GLORY throughout 2017 and beyond in Jesus precious Name. Amen.

Shalom!

Yours for His Glory,

Adetokunbo O. Ilesanmi (PhD)
