“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years” Genesis 1:14
A BLESSED, VICTORIOUS AND PURPOSEFUL NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!
Everything on the face of the earth is governed by seasons of times. King Solomon penned this all- encompassing truth in the Book of Ecclesiastes declaring: “To everything, there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven” (Eccl 3:1). Not only do times and seasons determine the affairs on the earth, the Lord God also dispenses His redemptive plan for mankind by seasons. The Greeks aptly differentiate time in three categories: “Chronos”, “Kairos” and Pleroo”. “Chronos” is defined as the normal passing of time (I Pet 1: 17); “Kairos” connotes opportune time, set time or strategic time we need to seize and take action (Eph 5:16); “Pleroo” means the fullness of time (Gal 4:4). In the 490 “chronos” years of the Philippines, we have come to our “kairos” moment, the days of prophetic fulfilment when God is unveiling and bringing to pass His end-time prophetic agenda. We are approaching the “pleroo” of the ages, an entirely new season and the final dispensation and consummation of the last stage of God’s glorious redemption of mankind.
As we enter this season- breaking year 2012, we look back to the past year 2011 with thanksgiving to God for His abounding grace and mercy as He gave to us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of His will with all spiritual understanding concerning His d-time plan. This enabled us to prepare ourselves and the whole CLSF churches in the Philippines and all over the world to respond and align with God’s prophetic agenda for the Last Days. It was in the year 2011 that the Lord began to manifest His glorious presence as the churches began to respond to the call to pursue vigorously the destiny of the nation in our 490th year Jubilee season. It was in the year that passed that breakthrough gatherings repeatedly filled up the 12,000 capacity Cuneta Astrodome in the 22nd National Prayer Gathering (NPG), End-Time Harvesters Bootcamp (ETHBC) and the National Youth Prophetic Conference (NYPC). Amazingly, it was in the last quarter of 2011 that the prophets declared the coming of a new season and the final dispensation of God’s end-time plan that will usher in the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ in our generation!
The whole CLSF seeks to respond to the new season and final dispensation for the last days. The Lord is about to release an unprecedented outpouring of His spirit upon all flesh as He has promised at the end of this present age! There has to be a people who have prepared themselves for such glorious prophetic fulfilment! The Lord spoke through the prophet Joel in Joel 2:28-29. It is the Bride of Christ (Rev 19:7) who will receive such anointing; the warrior bride (“ezer”) who would reap the final harvest. CLSF seeks to be part of that end time Bride of Christ!
