THERE IS NO CROSS OVER TILL THERE IS A CHANGE OVER
My husband in our house is the electrician. I am the assistant apprentice. He is responsible for all I know where running a personal electric power supply (a.k.a generator) in our home is concerned. Just saying.
So you know who to blame for the title above. Lol!
Tomorrow is December 31st,the cross over day.(Yayyyy..!)
I have a few thoughts to share with you that I pray might bless you. Please be patient as you read.
December 31st is a date and so is January 1st. No doubt about that. The important thing about those dates however is not the numbers but the interpretation given to them by YOUR CALENDAR.
The former is old. The later is new, that is what makes all the difference.
I hope you know some people predict their “new” year differently?
If not, do you at least agree with the fact that the whole world doesn’t celebrate New year same day. If you don’t, hmm..You’d need a quick study on TIME ZONES.
So what’s a cross over?
It’s simply a change of status.
Meaning you were at one place before then you moved intentionally to another. Between your last and new position there was a demarcation.
You might find it interesting also to note that there really doesn’t have to be a difference between your former place and your newer place. The demarcation in every case is what is important. In this case, as I have already mentioned above, what your calendar says is the demarcation and everyone’s calendar doesn’t necessarily have to be the same.
For instance,if the New year is decided to be January 2nd as against the first, cross over moves from December 31st/January 1st to January 1st/January 2nd. So its not exactly the date. Its about the decision. Its significance largely depending on our beliefs and ultimately mindsets.
Thus the Cross Over we yearly celebrate (and perhaps have quite jinxed) takes place not in any church,prayer mountain,beer parlour, family house or a lover’s arms but actually in our minds.
My “light” illustration..
Between the power supply company and your generator is a change over switch. The power supplied may or may not be different one from another in voltage but the actual key to enjoying either supply lies in your change over switch.
Take that notion further, it lies in your hands.
Take it a little farther;it lies in your ability and readiness to make the switch.
There are many nights in my house when we have put off the generator but forgot to do a change over. The result of that forgetfulness is that the Power Holding company restores power but we remain in the dark. Everyone around us is already enjoying light while we miss out because we didn’t do a change over.
I’m going to relate this illustration to how Israel had, in Goshen, the POWER that Egypt killed their first born sons, livestock and everything they ever had for. Yet Israel remained bent over.
Get my point here.
It doesn’t matter what the pastor is going to say, your responsibility in the new year will not change.
“A lazy man that sleeps in the time of sowing when the harvest comes there will be great sorrow for him”. Proverbs 20:4
No prophetic declaration can overthrow the Word of God. Sorrow(in much hunger) remains the end result of that lazy man,even if his NEW year is tagged YEAR of Harvests.
You are already depressed and you think “a good show” is what you need. Really? When the show is over will your life be over?
Your definition of cross over is to enjoy till stupor. How many tons of drinks will you down to quench the thick emptiness in your heart? None. The only over you’d achieve is a “hang” over.
What celebrity will you pay to go and watch that will change the quality of your life? Will he give his own life in exchange for yours? Absolutely no. Even the world knows there’s only Jesus in that category of celebrity.
So I repeat, “the show will be over”. What will you do about your life?
Note this, it’s not called a show if lasts forever. It’s called a life.
Your LIFE is the real essence of cross over because dead men don’t celebrate New Year.
If you’re alive to see it,there is a purpose to fulfil it. Proverbs 16:1-3.
Every New year comes with fresh opportunities. Unlimited possibilities. If you don’t know or have the vision for your year you will just be walking by and passing time. Nothing to show. Proverbs 29:18
Time is all you’ve got and its unstoppable. Remember,whether you WATCH it or not, the NIGHT will go,the morning will come. What changes your life is the actual change that happens in your mind. Proverbs 23:7
Take for another instance.
As you read right now the whole world has crossed over (by Salvation through Christ’s redemption) but many have failed to do their change over (that is,receive the salvation). Hence though there is light they make their journey constantly towards darkness (eternal damnation).
Don’t make the same mistake by crossing over without doing a heart-mind change over. Otherwise your New Year remains nothing but just a change of calendar. Like old wine in new wineskin your life remains essentially the same!
I pray in Jesus name that you will Cross Over. Much better than a cross over is your change over. May you be able to make that necessary CHANGE in your mind and heart that takes you OVER to your next level in Jesus name!
I’ve received a great Help in that aspect of change and I’d be glad to share with you this Sunday at the Kings Heritage Church ,Press Hall ,Iwe -Iroyin, Ibara GRA, Abeokuta.
It’s an evening service : 4-7pm.
My message is titled : RISE AGAIN.
I want you to know that my year took a new level of LEAP since God gave me this message. As you come my prayer is that yours will too in Jesus name.
Thanks for spending these quality minutes with me.
Happy New Year in advance !
