A MESSAGE FROM AGO
MARCH 2020: MONTH OF HOLY SPIRIT AND THE MANIFESTATION OF GOD’S CHILDREN
…The earnest expectation of the creation waits for the manifestation of God’s children
- Romans 8:29
We bless the Lord for bringing us to the end of the fasting and prayer season and also of the month of February. This third month belongs to the Third Person of the trinity and all God’s children who would walk in the spirit and not in the flesh.
The world is gripped with great fear of a virus which broke out of China a while ago and now humanity is in panic. As God’s people, we should take the necessary precautions but we must never allow ourselves to become fearful for two important reasons. First, the Lord predicted global pestilence as a part of the signs of his second coming (Mt. 24.7). All other happenings in our world confirm that His coming is nearer than ever before. And He is not coming for all church goers but only those who are watching and waiting. Heb.9.28.

Second reason we are not to worry is that He already made provision for our safe keeping by His blood and His Holy Spirit. This is why it is important to be certain that you and your family members and anyone that is close to you are all solidly in Christ and covered by His blood. He created all destroyers and gave them strict orders on not touching those covered by the blood of His Son-the perfect Lamb. (Ex. 12.13; Is. 54.16,Jn.1.29). His Holy Spirit whom He called the Comforter is the One who also brings us an anointing that destroys all yokes of the enemy (Jn 15.26-27; Is. 10:27).
This was dramatized in the testimony of the leper who pleaded that the Lord removed his leprosy…because He trusted and believed that He had the power to do so. The Lord did what He was not allowed to do both by the medical and religious orders of the day because leprosy was both infectious and incurable. No one was to touch the leper. In fact lepers were to cry that an unclean person was coming so they would not be infected (Lev. 13:45, Mk 1: 40-45). But the Lord touched Him and immediately his leprosy disappeared.
If you did not take part in the 50 day prayers and fasting or if you did and your focus was on other issues, we advise that this month you devote it to seeking that the Lord fill you with His Holy Spirit because this is the anointing which the Lord carries and destroys all yokes (Acts 10.38). He also grants us the divine enablement to live holy as children of God whereby we can cry Abba father. (Rom 8: 14-16). Holy Spirit would also enable us to pray more efficaciously especially in interceding for others (Rom.8.26-27). Indeed, the significance of the Lord touching of this leper is also the reason He is touching us today: that we tell others of our story so they can also be His followers. Indeed, the Lord is searching for those who would become carriers of His power to touch other lives as well and bring them the joys and victories which were prophesied as the lot of His children in this New Year by our General Overseer. Hence, even those who took part in the fasting and prayer must ask for the fullness of the Holy Spirit (Lk.11.13).
Join the others who manifested His glory in their generation—(Mk.1.45, 5.18-20.)It is your season of manifestation…You are to MARCH FORWARD INTO GREATER GLORY, JOYS AND VICTORIES THIS MONTH. Welcome to the month of the Holy Spirit and the Manifestation of God’s Children.
