I am going to start today's installment of this series by opening with some quotes from the first installment of this teaching. You may want to go back and read that if you have not done so, as it provides a foundational approach to this subject, "what's special about the new year?"
Now here is what i wrote in the first installment of this teaching: '...this two divides or mentality defines how people approach the new year. One is that of personal responsibility as a pacesetter for the success in the new year, the other is leaning on the prophetic agenda for success in the new year! Now, both are required for your success! Never get carried away that what will happen in 2019 is all down to you. God has a calendar and on His calendar, he has an agenda'
One other thing that came to mind from the first installment of this teaching is that God does not live within time, but God certainly works with time. And it is with time, seasons and years that God sets his agenda for humanity. It is with time, seasons and years that God sets his plan and their accomplishments for an individual, a people or a nation. And today we are just going to go through certain scriptures, a lot of scriptures, to establish the truth that every passing calendar or changing calendar carries with it God's agenda for the hour!
FOR EVERY OF GOD'S AGENDA THERE IS A SET TIME AND SEASON FOR ITS FULFILMENT
In Genesis 18:14 the bible says, "Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son".
The birth of Isaac represents a crucial plan in establishing the nation of Israel and for that grand purpose, God appointed time for its fulfillment. This brings to mind another scripture in Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 where the wise man Solomon said: 'To everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven'
There are things that may seem to take too long in our lives to be fulfilled, but the word says, it's not really long, for every delayed blessing is waiting for its appointed season! At the time appointed, God says, I will return to perform my word. For some people, 2019 is the year God is returning on their behalf.
GOD APPOINT TIMES FOR THE FULFILMENT OF HIS WORD
Genesis 21:1-2 tells us that at the time God appointed God visited Sarah and fulfilled his word. For the fulfillment of any prophetic word, God appoints time and seasons for their fulfillment. Even concerning the birth of the savior of the world, there was a time appointed for that. Jeremiah 33:15 said, "In those days and at that time will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David, and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land".
IN GOD'S AGENDA, EVERYONE, EVERYTHING, EVERY PEOPLE AND EVERY NATION HAS A TIME
Talking about Jacob Psalm 105:19 says, "Until the time that his word came: the word of the Lord tried him". Until Jacob's appointed time came his life was a trial and error, neither here nor there!
Ecclesiastes 3:11 says God makes everything beautiful " in his time". Meaning, at your appointed time your beauty will emerge!
