The World Bank has announced that Nigeria will overcome its worst recession this year 2017; a prophecy I had shared 10 days before the World Bank statement – since Sunday January 1st with members of Shaddaiville Ministries in Nigeria, United Kingdom, United States, Ghana, Canada, and with the Lord’s flock in the Celestial Church of Christ, Praiseville, Berlin Germany.
Oh yes, Nigeria will get out of its recession and begin to grow its Gross Domestic Product (GDP). I prophesied and preached it, and 10 days later on January 11, the World Bank team of economists predicted it too. But it isn’t only Nigeria’s gory story of recession, corruption, political oppression that will change this year. It is the Lord’s decision that many lives, homes, businesses, marriages, ministries, careers will also experience turning – point testimonies this year.
SOMETHING ABOUT 17
Seventeen as a number and reference point is mentioned 10 times in the Holy Bible and of this very low frequency of mentions, a certain ’17’ refers to money and high yield investment opportunity that is absolutely divine and which comes from having the ‘right of redemption.’ This is found in the Bible book of Jeremiah 32:9 saying “And I bought the field of Hanameel and weighed him the money, even seventeen shekels of silver.” (Please read Jeremiah 32:6-9 for the details).
This isn’t a message to all Nigerians, but one directed at all those who believe in the redeeming message of the Cross, the revelations in the Holy Bible and the omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence of God. And for all Christians, this message which has gone around Christians in at least four continents of the world is a collector’s item for reflections and a success strategy that will work throughout 2017.
“17 shekels of silver” quoted above was all that Prophet Jeremiah needed to pay for the large parcel of choice land that his nephew offered him. Why? Because Jeremiah had been found worthy of something called the ‘right of redemption.’ If you also shall do things and spend money in ways that earn you rights of redemption this year, huge financial opportunities, deal investments and purchases plus untold blessings shall be yours in Jesus name. Amen.[fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”]
Before I discuss what exactly is meant by the right of redemption, let’s quickly look at the other appearance of this year’s anchor number ’17’ in the Bible. In Genesis chapter 37, Joseph was 17 years old when he pictured himself and his nation out of recession in ways that changed his story from temporarily being a slave to being a prisoner and eventually becoming next in rank, title and function to the King of Egypt (call him prime minister, food governor, etc).
Like Joseph at 17, we are all in the 17th year of this millennium and the divine principles working in this 17th era will make the word work wonders (www) for us in Jesus name. Amen. The success strategy for 2017 therefore is to PICTURE it. PURSUE it and then you will POSSESS it.
But like Joseph, there are strict character strengths you need to cultivate. Don’t COVET that which belongs to another. To covet another man’s wife or another woman’s husband will lead you into adultery and fornication including unwanted pregnancy, sexually transmitted disease or worse. To covet someone else’s job, money, car, luxury item, political position, etc will lead you into stealing, armed robbery, kidnapping, blackmail, etc. All these are character flaws that diminish your grace to become great and loved both by God and man.
Joseph chose not to covet his master’s wife. He feared God and respected Potiphar too much for the grace given to him inside Potiphar’s home than to take advantage of Mrs Potiphar’s indiscretion. You need to be a Joseph this year. So be of good character and of good cheer and trust that God will make ’17’ work for you this 2017.
Please get this bonus clearly… 2017 is a good year for partnerships. Joseph’s holiness positioned him for God’s grace. His partnership with the cup bearer, while they were both in prison, gave Joseph his deliverance and his gifts (as announced to the king by the cup bearer) changed his story to glory, and race to grace. Joseph’s hatred by his enemies (his brothers) became the catalyst for his pursuit through slavery, jail term and hardship. But he never gave up. And although he was forgotten in prison for two years, he still made it to the Palace.
This year 2017, God will send your own cup bearers to you who will announce your gifts, skills, professional competence and well honed virtues to the world and to people who will give you rights of redemption in Jesus name. Amen.
ABOUT POSSESSION AND PROGRESSION
POSSESSION is ownership of all that God has given to you, but it is useless unless it leads to your PROGRESSION.
POSSESSION occurs 92 times in the bible. Applying Base 10 biblical numerics, 9+2=11 and 1+1=2… Therefore POSSESSION thrives on partnerships this year. For example, the success of your 2017 financial life will to a large extent depend on how well you and your business partners jell, and how much peace and encouragement you enjoy in your marriage.
POSSESSION means much more than money. It means inner peace plus the supply of material, spiritual, intellectual and scriptural resources, etc – and that is, all-round PROGRESSION.
PROGRESSION means continuous development; a sequence or succession of positive personal testimonies, and all these shall be your portion in Jesus name. Amen.
In summary, both Bible verses expounding the prophetic relevance of ‘17’ show that MONEY (Jeremiah 32:9) and POSITION (Genesis 37:2) are important by-products of POSSESSION and PROGRESSION.
QUICK FACTS: 17 occurs 10 times in the Bible. Also in Biblical Base 10 numerics, this year sums up as 10, that is 2+0+1+7=10. Therefore your POSSESSION and PROGRESSION this year is also anchored on the Christian principle of tithes and tithing, that is, giving a tenth of your earnings and profits back to the church for the work and wages of the Gospel… that food might be plenty in the church, in homes, in businesses and in countries where God’s children hold sway.
RIGHT OF REDEMPTION FOR POSSESSION
Beloved, how you’ve spent money in the past and especially how you spend it this year, will either qualify or disqualify you for rights of redemption and the unique advantages of divine POSSESSION.
“And Moses took the redemption money of them that were over and above them that were redeemed by the Levites – Numbers 3:49.
MONEY appears in the Bible 125 times> 1+2+5=8. By nature, money is restless. It can only remain in your POSSESSION if you know how to grow, save, invest and spend it according to God’s instructions.
In 2017, you need to spend redemption money by spending to save lives, save the Church from dire straits, promote charity, invest in Gospel expansion to win and impact souls for the advancement of humanity and life after death in God’s Kingdom. Surely, monies so spent become Kingdom investments that will earn you rights of redemption as well as position you for big breakthroughs that only God can orchestrate for the truly deserving this year.
May you enjoy divine POSSESSION and PROGRESSION all through 2017 in Jesus name. Amen.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
