Restoration is a desire of life, but it can only be accessed through revelation. You need to understand that revelation is the gateway to your inheritance.
God’s Word says: According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue (2 Peter 1:3). Your restoration heritage is guaranteed in Christ, but it is your insight that defines the limit of access to your inheritance.
Therefore, get excited at the Word because revelation is the gateway to your inheritance.
The Root Of Your Restoration Heritage: Your restoration heritage is built on three platforms:
•Redemption (John 10:10): Every child of God is ordained for manifold supernatural restoration.
•The Abrahamic Covenant: By redemption, you are a seed of Abraham (Galatians 3:29). Being a seed of Abraham, you are entitled to the blessings of Abraham (Genesis 12:3).
•The End-time Prophetic Agenda (Joel 2:24-26): God’s end-time prophetic agenda confers on you restoration rights. Therefore, restoration is a vital aspect of God’s end-time agenda and we are the end-time saints.
Scriptural Steps To Double Portion Restoration:
Restoration is God’s agenda, but what does it take to access God’s restoration package? Job is a classic example of double restoration (Job 42:10). What were the steps that led to his restoration?
•Repentance (Job 42:6): Repentance is vital in your bid to experience true restoration. Job suddenly discovered that he opened the door to the devil through fear. Whatever goes wrong in a man’s life is traceable to him. Every access the devil has to your life, is as permitted by you. Therefore, give no place to the devil (Ephesians 4:27).
•Love (Job 2:9-10): Job was an addicted lover of God in spite of all his challenges. His three friends mocked him; yet, love moved him to pray for them. Your genuine love for God will flow to all men, including those who hurt you (1 John 4:20-21). It was after Job’s demonstration of love that God restored him. Job was a lover of God with proofs to show. You cannot turn your back on the God of restoration and experience restoration.
•Revelation (Job 23:10): Revelation is the gateway to manifold restoration (Proverbs 6:30-31). Job was a man of deep revelation, which launched him into realms of double restoration. He knew his change was coming (Job 14:14). Your inheritance is only deliverable by revelation (Isaiah 60:1-3).
•Faith (Job 13:15-16): Faith is a vital key to accessing your restoration package from God. Job’s faith was unwavering and his trust was total. The deeper your revelation, the stronger your trust in God. If you drop your faith, you have closed the door to your restoration. What you do not believe, you cannot be empowered to become (Luke 1:45).
•Prayer and Fasting (Isaiah 58:6-10): Prayer and fasting is a powerful platform to violently access and take delivery of your restoration. You engage in spiritual warfare through prayer and fasting, to destroy the hold of the wicked over what belongs to you (Luke 11:21-22).
Friend, the grace to enjoy divine restoration is available, if you are a child of God. You become a child of God by confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. You can be a child of God now by saying this prayer: Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I cannot help myself. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. Today, I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Thank You, for saving me! Now, I know I am born again!
scriptural steps to double portion restoration:
•The Blood Covenant (Zechariah 9:11-12): The blood of Jesus is a vital force for your restoration. Your double restoration can be accessed by engaging the blood covenant in warfare.
•Praise (Philippians 4:4): High praise is a platform for supernatural restoration. When praise becomes your lifestyle, restoration becomes a natural occurrence.
•Prophetic encounters (2 Kings 4:1-7): God’s anointed prophets are agents of restoration. Every genuine prophetic encounter leads to supernatural restoration.
•Divine Guidance: When God leads you on what to do, supernatural restoration becomes your testimony. When God leads you through the Holy Spirit, your supernatural restoration is guaranteed anyday And David (1 Samuel 30:8; 18-19).
When God leads, He restores whatever belongs to you (Psalm 23:1-3), renders your enemies helpless (Psalm 23:4), and takes over your battles.
•When God leads, He goes before the led: It was God who went before David and overthrew his enemies (1 Samuel 30:8).
•When God leads, He goes with the led. When God is for you, no situation can be against you (Romans 8:31).
•When God leads, He works with the led (Mark 16:20).
•When God leads, He works through the led (John 14:10).
•When God leads, He works for the led.
How To Access Divine Guidance:
•Be born again (John 10:4-5): Until you are born again, you cannot be led, because you do not have the life of God in you.
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life (1 John 5:12).
You must be born again to qualify for divine guidance, which guarantees supernatural breakthroughs (Isaiah 48:17-21).
•Desire to be led: In all your ways, acknowledge God as your true guide and He will direct your path (Proverbs 3:5-6).
•Position yourself spiritually (Revelation 1:10): You must be a man/woman of the Spirit. You must maintain a high level spiritual frequency, because He can speak to you anywhere and anytime. Many people miss God’s divine direction, because they are not spiritually positioned.
…Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter (Revelation 4:1). You must come out of carnality to the spiritual realm to pick divine signals.
•Engage in Prayer and fasting (2 Samuel 5:19-23): We engage in prayer and fasting to locate the way to go, in order to experience our desired restoration.
God’s leading is pivotal in accessing your Next Levels. If you want full restoration of your redemptive dignity, you must open up to divine guidance. God led Moses step by step, in restoring the destiny of the Israelites. God has vowed your restoration and no devil can stop it. Your change of story has finally come, therefore, be restored!
Friend, the power to benefit from divine guidance is available, if you are born again. You get born again by confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as your Saviour and Lord. If you are set for this new birth experience, please say this prayer: Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. Today, I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Thank You Jesus for saving me! Now I know I am born again!
