DIVINELY-GUIDED INSTRUCTIONS FOR ENJOYING THE UNCEASING BLISSFULNESS OF JEHOVAH IN 2019
Common sense unarguably accepts that commonly-agreed understanding will produce common position and common stance. In effect and in essence, the consequence of such commonality is common results commonly embraced by all the parties in the commonly understood transaction.
For the sake of reiteration, permit me to reemphasise the strong view once again that in order to achieve common results commonly enjoyed, there must be no variance in understanding. The absence of variance in understanding will effect common agreement. Common agreement subsumed with common intentions will lead one easily to one’s desired haven with the least stress. What you have read so far should not sound like an abstract to your intelligent minds.
The point is simply better and less abstractly told by the prophet Amos. Amos chapter 3:3 states that (paraphrased): without man’s alliance with God in Godlike attributes free from sin, partnership between God and man will head in only one direction: it is the sole direction of the rocks for a massive accident. Why? Because God struggles so much when He is in the company of a sinner. There has never been a year like the year 2019. It is a year in which God has gone ahead without man’s invitation to settle all problems of man ahead of man’s entry into it. What an awesome kindness from Jehovah!
So, it means then that man is left with an open cheque for 2019 with the bank to which the cheque is attached fully loaded with money and all the resources man will ever need. However, get this clear. The likelihood of a hurdle at the cashier’s desk is often not surprising for many people. In other words, there is a condition attached to cashing the freely-given cheque. It is the condition of righteous living. The Lord is lamenting very seriously that the spiritual clouds over man are heavily laden with great rain of blessings (Eccl.11:3). But when will man desist from sin such as petty and serious lies, lusts, pride, anger and many more? The problem now is not how to cross the Jordan or how to break down the terrible walls of Jericho.
For God has already done all these as far as 2019 is concerned. But shall man possess his possessions after entry? (Obadiah 1:17). This is a question for man alone to answer. One thing is sure: all men will have themselves to blame and not the next man or the satan who motivated them to sin in 2019 should they fail to keep away from sin.
The year 2019 is a year of solution says the Lord God of heaven and earth. The question is: will you miss out from the divine solution provision of 2019? Understand that there is only one figure missing between 19 and 20. It is the figure: 1. It means that without 1, 19 will never become that glorious 20 which 19 seeks. That missing figure 1 is righteous living.
2019! 2019 is a composition of four digits: 2, 0, 1 and 9. When combined in terms of a year nomenclature, there are two combined meaningful digits of 20 and 19. If God who has gone ahead into 2019 is the first two digits of the year 2019 being 20, then man is the remaining two digits being 19.
It means then that should man ever desire to have a common position and common stance with God which will ultimately produce common glorious results for man’s testimony and joy and praise to God, then man need the figure 1 being righteous living in order to be at a common agreement with God. Of course, it tells us that although it is the year 2019, yet man can be in 2020 common understanding with His Maker. 2020 means perfect partnership with no difference in complexion, attitude or spiritual numeracy though in the year 2019.
IN THE END, THERE IS A LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT. PUT SIMPLY, ACTIONS OR INACTIONS BEGET CONSEQUENCES ON BOTH SIDES: POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE. TO EMBRACE THE POSITIVE IS TO CHOOSE GOD’S OWN WAY OF DOING THINGS THE RIGHT WAY. THAT SHOULD BE THE COMMON UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN GOD AND MAN WHICH WILL PRODUCE THE COMMON RESULTS EXPECTED BY GOD AND MAN.

Backslidden – living in sin – needing fresh recommitment (say):
Christ Jesus, You are the Anointed One of the Most High. I come to you today as I am. In your mercy, help me out of my situation. Heal my soul, my spirit, my body, my life and my destiny. I acknowledge you as the only true lover of my soul. Please, deliver me on every side and save me through and through. I promise from the depth of my soul to be yours from henceforth, in Jesus name. Help me now O God. Be my Lord, my Saviour and my all in all from this day. Thank you Lord (read Ps.54 in closing and pray more).
