The on-going seventh sacred calendar month expressly reminds us of the Sabbath rest. A principle God does not take lightly because it is holy unto the Lord (Exo 16:23a; 20:8; 31:15 etc) understanding exactly what God really means by “Sabbath Rest” is the key to unlocking the blessing within.
From the foundational scripture in Gen 2:1-3, God wants all His children to join Him in His rest on the Sabbath. Man must be actively engaged working for only six days a week and rest the seventh day in complete communication and worship to his creator. The principle is the same for the seventh sacred Sabbath month. Ask the Lord to show you what you must personally do in order to share in God’s rest for the month. (Acts 9:6b; 22:10)
Pray that the Holy Spirit will unveil the depth of the meaning of the “Sabbath rest” to you and to every member of the Body of Christ as a personal revelation; to bring about understanding, and then each can decide to practically participate and enjoy the rest that remains for them and reap the blessings from the Lord. (1 Cor 2:10-11; Heb 4:9-11)

Frustrate every intended distraction from the pit of hell concerning the conference.

In Africa, more than 50% of her population are below 15 and so the youths need the Lord so that their lives will align to God’s will for them.

In the tenth lunar month (October) as the sun makes its circuit through the heavens, it passes through a cluster of 44 stars in the constellation called Scorpio symbolized by a scorpion. This represents Jesus as the redeemer who goes through conflict with the enemy in order to redeem His people.
The season of conflict with the enemy will increase to levels unimaginable but the church must be ready for combat.
Pray that God will make you, family, marriage, business, the church, community and nation a new sharp threshing instrument with teeth so you will thresh every mountain that looms up before you and make the hills as chaff (Is 41:14-16; Mic 4:13)
Pray that the bowels of every believer worldwide will churn with pain in our hearts so we will not hold our peace in preaching the gospel of salvation to the dying world because of the alarm of war. (Jere 4:19-20; Isa 52:7; Nah 1:15a; Rom 10:15).
Ask the Holy Spirit to remind you of any doors that the enemy has used in the past to find entrance into your life and close them prophetically as you make the resolution to determinedly focus on pursuing after God’s purpose for your life and destiny.
This is a season of preparation for gathering up for the winter season. Examine your spiritual life. Is there an area where you need to consider stocking up on? Do you need an increased prayer and communion with God? Do you need to increase on your word intake through reading studying and memorizing scripture for the season ahead? Do you need to increase your times of fellowship with the brethren or take time to retreat and commune with God? Take long periods of praying in tongues as you commune with the Holy Spirit and build yourself up.
During this season, be like the ant and seek for the area you need to build yourself up (Prov 6:1:6-11, Col 3:16-17, Heb 10:23-25, Jude 20)
