Celebrate Christ in Praise and Worship on New Year's Day

 Worldly New-Year Celebrations

As we know it,  the whole world is now celebrating (or about to celebrate) another New Year. Everybody has made the necessary arrangements to celebrate this annual event. Oftentimes, this is done without considering the Creator of this day (Psalm 118:24). What we do is we exclude God from our daily lives and celebrate a change of day, instead of celebrating and honoring Him who created us and the day. In short, the Lord desires our praise and worship for granting us life and days in this world (1 Thessalonians 5:16). Our rejoicing and celebration must therefore be unto the Lord for His honor (Philippians 4:4).

Before I share the vision, we want to set the record straight that New-year celebrations are worldly and ungodly (1 John 2:15). Additionally, the Lord detests false witnesses who predict lies (Proverbs 6:16-19). Below, we are sharing again a vision the Lord gave us a few years ago and it is worth sharing again!

Vision of Worldly New Year Partying and False Predictions

Given to Charis on December 31, 2012

"In the first part of the vision I saw an African woman with braided hair sitting in her living room looking at a clock and it was 13:13 p.m. After looking at the time, she took her Bible and opened it in the 13th book of the Bible, 1 Chronicles 13:13, and she started reading this verse.

Thereafter, the vision changed to the year 2014. She again looked at a clock and it was 14:14. She came out of her house and saw 14 boys passing by her house and she took note of it as confirmation to her 'prediction'. It suddenly became 2015, she again looked at the clock and this time it read 15:15 p.m. Just then, someone came into her house telling her: "You must STOP saying every year the Lord is coming, and you must STOP predicting falsely!" (Note: Although the Lord has shown the face of this person to Charis, He told us that she is not the only one making false predictions. The Lord is warning us against setting dates and making predictions about His coming).

Soon after this, the vision changed and I found myself high up in the sky lying on my stomach looking down onto the earth, which was in the shape of a circle. The whole world's population filled that circle. This was on a New Year's Day, because people below shouted "Happy New Year!" and I saw hundreds of balloons in various colours being hoisted with a “Happy New Year” message. I could see widespread drinking and partying everywhere.

The vision changed again and a few days after New Year I saw only a few thousand of the world's population worshipping the Lord. After they worshipped, I heard the voice of the Lord say: "They would rather go to worldly parties than to praise and worship Me". After the Lord said this, I saw a BIG white SAD FACE :( appear in the sky, then the vision ended".

In conclusion, as a ministry we do not claim to know the DAY OF THE LORD, and all we know is that He has given us certain promises which are yet to be fulfilled. Also, the Lord in His grace and Wisdom is using this ministry to warn the church and call God-fearing people to repentance.

Psalm 86:9 NIV:All the nations You have made will come and worship before You, O Lord; they will bring glory to Your name.”

Blessed and Holy New Year to all our brethren everywhere in the world, in Jesus name!
