Look Up And See What God Sees

September 2020

Greetings in the name of our Lord! 


Welcome to the month of September! 

Welcome to the month of new ideas and new visions.  

Our Prophetic Encouragement this month comes from the book Genesis 18.


Genesis 18:1-3;10-11.

"And the Lord appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;

2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,

3 And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

10And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.

11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age, and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women."


There are several revelations to be gotten about this passage.

1. Abraham was sitting at his Tabernacle door

   The Tabernacle Door represents a place of exit and entrance. 

   This month you have to be sitting at the "door" of God's presence because

   he is about to make entry into your home.  

2. Abraham was sitting about mid-day (when it was hot). 

    Although it was hot Abraham still decided to sit in the heat.  As the 

    trial and tribulations continue to happen all around you, keep sitting in 

    God. Don't allow the trials to get you out of your resting place in Him.  Let

    God stand up for you.   

3. As Abraham looked up he noticed 3 Angels. 

   If you are ready to see what God sees's you have to look up.  This is not the

   time to look down on what is going on in the world today.  Look up to God 

   because what he is doing is a whole lot better than what is going on now in

   the earth.

4  Abraham saw at a distance something unexpected.

    Although it may seem like the things you desire are at a distance and             seems so far away, God is getting ready to release "something 

     unexpected" for you.  It may be unexpected help, unexpected salvation of

     a loved one, unexpected blessings, or unexpected favor.  Just trust God.


5.  Abraham ran towards the Angel

    When you look up into the presence of God this month and increase your 

    relationship with him he is sending an Angel on your behalf.  Run towards 

    the Angel welcoming him to deliver your blessings of protection, healing,

    deliverance, breakthrough, and harvest.

Building A Spiritual Habitation

August 2020

Greetings in the name of our Lord! 


Welcome to the month of August! 


How have you been making it during these times?  With God on your side, you will continue to survive!


I want to briefly speak to you about "Building Your Spiritual Habitation."  1 Corinthians 6: 19-20 says, "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.


The Lord spoke to me that this is the time for His people to build a spiritual habitation where he can dwell in their lives.  With all that is going on with the pandemic, the restrictions that are in place, and the need for quarantine, it is a divine set up to get closer to God.  


There is no greater time than now to build a spiritual habitation for God.    What do I mean by a spiritual habitation? It is your physical and emotional self that is a conduit for God to flow through and out of you to impact the world around you.  


You can build your spiritual habitation in several ways: 

1. Develop an atmosphere for listening.  Get in a quiet place before God to hear what he thinks about you and what he desires to do through you at this time.  Spend time in prayer waiting to hear his voice and refuse to move until you encounter Him.


2.  Speak prophetic declarations daily.  Speaking declarations daily makes you aware of who God is and reminds you of your abilities in God.  Prophetic declarations declare where you are going.  

Here are a few simple, yet powerful declarations: 

"My steps are ordered by God and I will walk in my divine purpose."

" I receive the infilling of God's spirit into my body and I am healthy, wealthy, and whole." 

" I am taking advantage of every opportunity ordained by God." 

" I will not be deceived about the will of God for my life, I see through the x-ray lense of His eyes." 

"God's Spirit gives me the ability to operate in things I've never done before and He is doing a new thing in me as in Isaiah 43:19."


3.  Be honest about your weakness and be willing to change.  It is time to face your weaknesses and allow God to heal you.  If you are struggling with sexual sin, find out what causes you to continue in that path and do whatever is necessary to change.  If you are dealing with fear, place those fears upon God, and trust Him to carry you through.  


"Now is the time for "building up yourself on your most holy faith." God is wanting to put you on His potter's wheel in order to polish you up.  He is ready to show his workmanship of you in a glorious way.  Let him work on you so that all the greatness on the inside of you will come forth.  


The world is waiting for you and you have so much to offer.  Now is the time! Get ready! 


Many Blessings,

Apostle, Dr. Watkins

Press Under Pressure

July 2020

Greetings in the name of our Lord! 


Welcome to the month of July! 


Whether you have experienced loss, hurt, struggles, depression, peace, increase, or happiness, you made it this far.  As I was meditating on the Lord, concerning what to say to you all this month, I heard the Lord say, "Press Under Pressure!"  


The Greek Lexicon describes the word press as 'Dioko', which means "to press on: figuratively of one who in a race runs swiftly to reach the goal or to suffer persecution."  There is a lot of persecution and pressures going on now in the world but you must press and God will sustain you.  


2 Timothy 3:1 says, "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come." I truly believe we are in perilous times. We see in the world continual battles against the deadly coronavirus,  potential 2nd phase lockdowns, the presence of locusts swarming India, protests across the world, Boko Haram attacks in Nigeria, the bubonic plague suspected in Mongolia, and so much more.  


We can't allow all of these concerns to overtake us!  Hebrews 12:1-2 says, "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."


Our stance in this season is to continue pressing under pressure.  How are we to press? We are to press into Jesus through prayer, faith and study of the scriptures.  We are to lay all of our weights on Jesus because he cares for us!  Our eyes should remain on him and as we do this, we allow God to lift every heavy burden in our hearts.


God encourages us and says to us, "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."


Many Blessings,

Apostle, Dr. Watkins

God Will Provide

June 2020

Greetings in the name of our Lord! 


Welcome to the month of June! 


There has been a lot going on in the world today but I want to briefly encourage you to hold on to God.  It seems like there is not much spiritual influence happening in the earth today and that there is a great falling away and it looks as if God has abandoned us.  However, I want you to be encouraged to know that God is with you and he will provide. 


Although there are issues with death, sickness, COVID-19, divisions and so much more,  you will see a turnaround! God will protect you.  The scripture I want to give you this month comes from Zechariah 2:5.  "For I, saith the LORD will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her."  Just as God told the Israelites he would be a wall of fire/protection around them, he will do the same for you.  


As you keep the faith and trust in him nothing will be able to penetrate His wall of protection around you! Decree over your life that no sickness will overtake you or come near your dwelling.  No poverty or lack shall hit your house! No injustice will come against your family and you will remain in the presence of His peace! So, go in his grace and his love!



Many Blessings,

Apostle, Dr. Watkins

Favor in the Midst of Famine

May 19th, 2020

Greetings in the name of our Lord! 


Welcome to the month of May! The month of God's grace!  


As we are experiencing so much going on in the world God wants you to know that he has you covered.  Don't allow fear to set in and stop you from fulfilling your purpose in God.  


All political parties are at odds with one another, no one can make a definite decision about what direction to take concerning the COVID-19, people are dying, depression is increasing and so much more.  But I say be encouraged because God is with you!  


God is releasing his presence on those that trust in Him and he is going to cause you to prosper in the midst of what looks like famine-like he did for Joseph in the Bible.  


Genesis 41:54 says, "Then the seven years of famine began, just as Joseph had predicted. The famine also struck all the surrounding countries, but throughout Egypt, there was plenty of food."


While others were starving, God had given Joseph the interpretation of the King's dream which brought him into a wealthy place.  He was able to advise the King on how to prosper during the 7 years of famine.  God had given Joseph unusual wisdom on how to prosper during lack.  


As you continue to seek God and trust Him, ask Him to give you His ideas on how to prosper in the midst of sickness, famine, confusion, and lack in the earth.  I pray that God anoints you with heavenly ideas, protection from sickness, and peace during this time.  


Many Blessings, 

Apostle, Dr. Watkins

Soaking Time

April 3rd, 2020

With all that is going on in the world today it is important to hear what the Lord is saying at such a time.  During my prayer times, I have been asking God for our stance during this time.  I heard him say that this is the time for not only prayer, reading his word, and repentance but a time of soaking in his presence. 

 

The Oxford Dictionary describes the word "soak" means to become thoroughly wet by immersing in liquid.  It also means to marinate and bathe.  Jude 1:20-21 explains it well when it says, " But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life."

 

This is the time for us to draw closer to God more than ever.  While we are quarantined in our homes we are to continually soak in the presence of God.  We are to build ourselves up in Him, allowing Him to fill us up with His presence and strength.  This is the time to be "endued with power from on high" as he told the disciples in Luke 24:49.  This is the time where God desires to inoculate us with His DNA against the maladies of today.  


So, I encourage you to soak daily by marinating and bathing in his presence while he infuses you with His power! When this is done we will know God in ways we've never known him before.  He will reveal a part of himself to us that will carry us throughout the rest of the year.   I encourage you to get wet in His glory! 


If you don't know the Lord Jesus as your personal savior he loves you and sent His only son Jesus to die on the cross for all of our sins.  Romans 10:13 says, "Whosever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." If you want to make that decision for eternal life then pray this prayer:  


"Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I have done things my own way and have not included you in my life.  However, I acknowledge that you raised your son Jesus Christ from the dead to be a sacrifice for my sins.  Therefore, I can have eternal life.  So, I ask you, Lord Jesus, to come into my life and save me from my sins.  Live in my heart and direct me in the steps that I am to take.  Thank you, Father, for forgiving me of my sins and I am now saved and have eternal life with you!" 


Congratulations if you prayed that prayer and welcome to the body of Christ. Make sure to get into a good bible believing church so that you can grow in your knowledge of God.   


Many Blessings, 

Apostle, Dr. Watkins

Season of Change

March 1st, 2020

"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."  (2 Corinthians 3:17)  We are in a time and a season where everyone is looking to be free.  We are looking to be free from hurts, disappointments, addictions, hindrances and so much more.  


Satan's assignment is to keep us locked in cycles of hurts, disappointments, and addictions so that we will never be free.  He has unleashed demonic attacks in order to stifle our progression in God.  If he can keep us in cycles then we will never experience true freedom to flow in God's supernatural favor and grace.  


However, more and more people are desiring to be released into their purpose and destiny on earth.  For those that are ready for change, I have good news for you!  Freedom is available to you!  God is sending in a new rain on the earth that is pouring out over the people so that they may be free.  


This new rain is going to be unleashed through his Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, Leaders, Ministers and anyone who has made themselves available to be used.  Through the release of the new rain limitations and restrictions placed on your life by Satan will be broken!  Even the physical earth will begin to produce signs of rain to symbolize what God is doing in the spiritual realm.  When the rain comes growth comes.  When the rain comes new life comes.  It is known that when the rain comes it washes the atmosphere of pollution and build-up.  God is sending a refreshing among his people and releasing you from the things that are polluting your atmosphere!


Fear, sadness, depression, pain, discouragement, infirmities, poverty, failures, shame, debt and much more has polluted the atmosphere. However, God has already began to process for new climate change so that the heavens will begin to produce rain for you! It's time to get wet! It's time to be free! It's time for Christ to rise up in you and pour out upon you His increase and enlargement.  Get ready to receive it! You have been waiting a long time and now the drought is over! My prayers are with you and I am in agreement that the rain has already begun in your life.  Many blessings and favor to you!  

                              

God Bless, Apostle Watkins.

Anointed to Come Out!

February 1, 2020

As I was in prayer the Lord wanted me to encourage you to let you know that you were not called to fit into a mold.  In this season you have to be who God has called you to be.  Don't be afraid to be you.  You don't have to copy what others are doing in order to fit in.  It's time for that anointed part of you to come out and be unapologetically you! When God anoints you no one can stop you!


According to the Bakers Evangelical Dictionary of Theology, The word "anointed means to smear or rub with oil for religious purposes.  God empowered people to accomplish His tasks once they were anointed.  When you were anointed in the Bible days, technically no one was allowed to harm "the anointed." 


You won't look like everyone else, you won't be like the norm, and you have to learn to embrace that.  You may be rejected by others but learn to accept it.  


I remember getting on different stages to preach and the Lord said to me "this is not your platform I've called you to."  So, I had to learn to be alright with what He said.  


So, I'm telling you today to embrace the you that God has called you to be because that's where your strength lies.  Stand out and be who God created you to be from your mother's womb.  Are you eclectic, short, thin, heavyset or stutter like Moses did?  Whatever your idiosyncrasies are, then embrace them.  Because when you are anointed by God, he anoints you with all of your idiosyncrasies.  You may look like John the Baptist who ate locust and wild honey in the woods. He was strange to most and isolated but he was anointed to prepare the way for Jesus!  


You may be considered a boring person but just remember the time when Paul's sermon was so boring.  His sermon was so boring that Eutychus fell asleep from a third-story window and died.  Paul with his boring self was able to bring him back to life.  So, although his sermon may have been boring to others, he had an anointing to raise the dead!. See Acts 20: 7-12.   


I want to encourage you today and let you know that you have been anointed to come out from the hiding. You've been anointed to come out of the shame of what your mother or father did.  You've been anointed to come out and be free of your past mistakes.  You will never forget your mistakes but embrace them and learn from them.  This is all a part of the process in the journey of becoming the beautifully unique person God made you. 


I am rooting and praying for you.  


Blessings, Apostle, Dr. Tiffany Watkins
