18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see
How do I buy gold from God?
The only common currency that people across the world have, irrespective of the language, culture, or nationality is the currency of time. Everybody on this planet Earth has 24 hours. What do you do with time? How are you using your time in the relationship with God?
Why is the currency of time very crucial for believers? God has given the currency of time to access the blessings ! Time is the most expensive currency of God. Whatever opportunity you’re looking for happens in the realm of time.
2 Kings 4: 8 Now it happened one day that Elisha went to Shunem, where there was a notable woman, and she persuaded him to eat some food. So it was, as often as he passed by, he would turn in there to eat some food. 9 And she said to her husband, “Look now, I know that this is a holy man of God, who passes by us regularly. 10 Please, let us make a small upper room on the wall; and let us put a bed for him there, and a table and a chair and a lampstand; so it will be, whenever he comes to us, he can turn in there.”
Opportunities will come undefined. You must be ready for opportunities. You need to be first prepared. You have to create a room for a miracle. Preparation precedes manifestation.
Secondly, bed indicates resting place. It’s only when you have rest, you can hear the word of God. The best example is Samuel. When he was sleeping, God called.
Thirdly, the table indicates fellowship with God. God wants to fellowship with you.
Fourthly, chair indicates humility. How much time you give to God, determines how far you can go in life.
Fifthly, lampstand indicates the Presence of God around you. After you have done everything, you will have the shekinah Glory of God around you.
After the sermon, Apostle John Vander Puye led the audience into worship. The Presence of God was awesome. People experienced the glorious power. As the audience queued up for prayers, he prophesied over the lives of individuals.
Praise God for the wonderful time !
