A Background

Over the last couple of years, the Lord has been speaking to Folake and myself regarding being a ‘blessing’ (Gen 1:1-3) and being ‘rich in good works’ (1 Tim 6:18) to our immediate community and the society as a whole. And we have been waiting on Him for His final signal and we sense and believe the set time is now! (Eccl 3:11).

As we waited on the Lord in intense prayer on the 19th of September 2017 for what he has in plan for us as a family in 2018, the Lord was very emphatic that he has made us a ‘Generational Blessing’ (Genesis 1:1-2) and that in ‘us shall all the nations of the world be blessed’. Additionally, we heard in our Spirit that the ‘Earnest Expectation of the Creature is Waiting for our Manifestation’. Romans 8:19. This is a tall order but we choose to believe God.

A little while later whilst still waiting in December 2017, he said the ‘The Liberal deviseth liberal things and by liberality shall he stand’ (Isaiah 32:8). It was clear to us, that the time to start devising liberal plans is here and it is from what He has given us that we need to start giving to others. In meditating on these things, we sometimes feel inadequate but His word from Apostle Paul concerning the Corinthians is a great assurance:

2 Corinthians 8:1-3/5 – ‘Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia; 2 How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance

of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality. 3 For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they were willing of themselves; 5 And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God’

We have given ourselves to the Lord and we are persuaded that this is the mind of God for us and from the abundance he has given us we will give to others without reliance on other peoples’ funds or cajoling anyone for funds. And we know that as we are obedient to the Lord, He will quicken the heart of men towards His project.

Please note that is not a money generating scheme of any kind nor is it a church planting effort. This is purely a new phase of God’s agenda for our family in being a ‘Generational Blessing to the Nations of the World’. Additionally, this is without prejudice to our personal tithes and offerings to the church as God commanded which we have done since we met Him over a number of years.
