NEW YEAR MESSAGE 2010 “2010 A YEAR OF COMPLETION AND FRUITFULNESS WHERE GOD IS SOVEREIGN IN THE GRACE AND TRUTH OF JESUS CHRIST” 19th January 2010
God chose the ‘foolish’ to confound the wise. He raise up ‘prophets’ from among themselves but they regarded them not. Though they do not ‘recognize’ Him as God they will be ‘judged’ by Him as God. (1 Cor 1:27, Amos 2:11) 2000 was declared “The International Year for the Culture of Peace” as designated by the United Nations with the aim of celebrating and encouraging a culture of peace. The International Year for the Culture of Peace came about from a resolution of the United Nation General Assembly 1997 on the basis of an Economic and Social Council Resolution.

Psalm 19:7-11 (The Message) The revelation of GOD is whole and pulls our lives together. The signposts of GOD are clear and point out the right road. The life-maps of GOD are right, showing the way to joy. The directions of GOD are plain and easy on the eyes. GOD's reputation is twenty-four-carat gold, with a lifetime guarantee. The decisions of GOD are accurate down to the ninth degree.
God's Word is better than a diamond, better than a diamond set between emeralds. You'll like it better than strawberries in spring, better than red, ripe strawberries….. There's more: God's Word warns us of danger and directs us to hidden treasure. Otherwise how will we find our way? Or know when we play the fool? Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh! Keep me from stupid sins, from thinking I can take over your work;
Then I can start this day sun-washed, scrubbed clean of the grime of sin. These are the words in my mouth; these are what I chew on and pray. Accept them when I place them on the morning altar, O God, my Altar-Rock, God, Priest-of-My-Altar.
DECLARATION of 2010 • MY COMPLETIONwill be measured by multiplication where your fruitfulness will exceed all expectations. • MY COMPLETION will be filled with the favour of the Lord as you move in excellence to become ‘most favoured of the Lord.’ • MY COMPLETIONwill cause you to get well so that every seed you sow will become fruitful.
