Once again We welcome you to 2016 our year of supernatural promotion. This is a sure word of prophecy that you should not take for granted. We had a similar word in 2015 tagged Total  victory and the victories recorded in all our churches were outstanding and mind bugging. On the back drop of this, I want to charge you to run with this prophecy and embrace it personally. Believe it, receive it and act on it. Then you will partake of the fruits in Jesus name.

I will like to start by defining what promotion means and what it could mean to various categories of people. It means advancement, elevation and change from one level to a better one. Promotion can mean a lot of things to different categories. To a student, it can mean better grades or promotion to a new class or level. To a retailer it could mean becoming a wholesaler, to a business person is could mean better return on investment than previous years, to a single person, getting married is promotion, it’s a change in status. To a tenant, becoming a landlord is a promotion. For a sick person, getting healed is promotion and for sinner converted to a saint, this is a major promotion. As a matter of fact that is the beginning of supernatural promotion. The question I want to ask and you need to sincerely answer is this: What will promotion mean to you in 2016. What is that thing that will happen to you this year that you can joyfully testify to it as a promotion? Take time to give this a thought and write them down now before you continue. What you don’t document, you cannot retrieve.

Let us now try to define supernatural: Anything your natural power or ability cannot achieve. Promotion, progress or advancement that are beyond human comprehension. It is God’s Super coming on your natural ability and making you to do things that naturally cannot be achieved. I recently listened to the testimony of a lady Doctor who conceived a child in a womb that has been clinically condemned. When her consultants found out, they all concluded that it was a mistake and of course they all, including the lady agreed that medically the baby will not survive in the womb and will eventually and naturally be aborted. On the contrary and to the amazement of all the baby remained and grew in the first trimester. At this point the consultants were all concerned not for the baby now but for the mother as she went through complications in her last delivery which make even Caesarean operation impossible. At That point she was advised to evacuate to save her own life. The doctors report confirmed that out of 15 of such cases they have on record, none of the women survived the surgery and only five of the babies survived but deformed. Against all medical advices from all consultants and counsellors, she held on to that tiny little voice in her spirit that assures her everyday of The Supernatural presence of God. To God be the glory, she’s alive today and the baby is one just this week. Her case defy all medical and scientific  permutations. The surgery was a miracle, the delivery was a miracle and the survival of her and the baby were both miracles. The Cheif surgeon told her before they went into theater that the only hope they have is the God factor and God showed up in his supernatural way.

So imagine this same supernatural God helping you this year, imagine God working with you to achieve all your dreams this year. How far will you dare to dream if you know that whatever you dream will be enabled by God beyond your natural ability and beyond what you can conceive?  If you look at what you have written that will mean promotion for you in 2016, you will perhaps notice that they are things achievable and realistic within human ability. Now that you know you will have the God factor, wouldn’t you rather dream bigger and write bigger promotions that are inconceivable? This is exactly what God wants to do in your life this year. He wants to do exceeding abundantly, far above what you imagine or think according to the POWER THAT IS AT WORK IN YOU. Ephesians 3:20. Deliberate emphasis on the words in capitals. I will explain this in the next paragraph but now that I have you where I want you, can you just take another minute to look at what you wrote initially as promotion and re-write it with the God factor in mind. Imagine you will have no limitations and God is available 24/7 to help you through.

Really the supernatural power of God is real and evident. Referring to my emphasis in the last paragraph, that Power to operate supernaturally is in every believer, if you can connect with that Power that works in the inside of you consistently, the supernatural lifestyle will become a daily affair and achieving supernatural promotion will not be seen as abstract. This is exactly what Paul was trying to communicate to the young believers in the below scripture.

Ephesians 1:17-23 (NIV) I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. [18] I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, [19] and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength [20] he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, [21] far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. [22] And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, [23] which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

Here Paul prayed for the spirit of wisdom and revelation and for God to open our inner eyes to see and understand the kind of Power available to us as believers. The Power we have is only comparable to the kind of power God used when he raised Jesus from the dead. Which is resurrection power. The same power restore Jesus to the right hand of God, which is restoration power. The same power set Jesus in the heavenly realms far above all rule and authority, which is dominion power. The same power gave Jesus a name that I above every other name and made him to be the head of all things. This to me is supernatural promotion power. All and many more or this supernatural powers are locked up in every believer, so Paul was praying and charging the Ephesian believers to wake up to their supernatural self and manifest.

Living a supernatural life style is living a promoted life, it is  a higher life different from the ordinary or natural life style, It is living from your divinity to influence your humanity, It is living from the inside to the outside, It is the dominion life style , It is the lifestyle and nature of God which we see this in Jesus, It is the super nature of God, coming on your human nature to make you supernatural and since we equally have become partakers of his divine nature according to 1 Peter 1:4, the supernatural nature is our nature and therefore supernatural living should be our way of life. I see you enjoy a supernatural uplift this year that transcends all human comprehension in Jesus name. Welcome to the supernatural you!
