Welcome to this last month of the year! Wow! What a year it has been! Thank God you made it thus far, despite the bloody battle against the unseen enemy – COVID-19. Prophet Daniel was one of those privileged to talk about how the world would be in the end times. He was told, “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased” (Daniel 12:4).
MANY SHALL RUN TO and FRO has two meanings:
1. A state of PANIC and FEAR worldwide such as this COVID-19 PANDEMIC.
2. Amazing increase in technology and speed! In 2016 alone, commercial airlines carried over 3.8 billion passengers and generated global revenue to the value of 501 billion US dollars. in 2017, the projected figures show an increase in global air passengers of 7.4% with a total revenue of 743 billion US dollars.
In 2019, over 5 billion flew by air! Men are truly running to and fro via technology. What about increase in knowledge? 5G network is here to stay! There are machines that do all kinds of things today. ONLY ONE FACTORY IN CHINA FIRED ABOUT A MILLION WORKERS BECAUSE ROBOTS (machines) STARTED DOING WHAT HUMANS WERE SUPPOSED TO DO! Amazing!
Nevertheless, in spite of all these, the world has become a more difficult place to live in; suicides, kidnappings, terrorism and violence of different kinds are on the increase. Divorce rates and job losses have increased. More people now live in fear! No matter how the world may be, no matter how difficult things may turn out or look around you, God is saying, “Don’t Quit.” He is keeping you alive for a reason!
Job is today’s scripture said in the midst of his many troubles, “For I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skins worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God” (Verse 25-26).
Yes, your Redeemer is alive! YOU DON’T SERVE A DEAD GOD! EVEN HIS SILENCE IS AN ACTION! No matter how 2020 has been, stop worrying about what can go wrong about your future or 2021. He will show up and turn things around!
Expect last-minute 2020 testimonies! Arthur Somers Roche penned: “Worry is a thin stream of fear tricking through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.” God is still saying, “Your best days are ahead! Don’t quit now! It is not over! I AM STILL ON THE THRONE as God” (Give out the 2021 ODM as a Christmas gift)
BIBLE-IN-ONE-YEAR: (Gal: 1-3)

3. Pray about this new month. Decree RESTORATION!
4. Repent from worry and anxiety even as 2020 ends. I KNOW MY REDEEMER LIVETH! I refuse to surrender to secret anger or fear! There, all things will work out for my good.
5. As 2020 ends, I scatter SHAME! I PLANT my season of Jubilee! I uproot SATANIC DELAYS and loose last-month divine surprises in Jesus name.
6. Pray in Tongues about this month! Pray about today!
