Matthew 13:25 (KJV)
But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

New Year crossover service across churches worldwide sees prophetic declarations and pronouncements made to parishioners whether based on the flesh or by the Holy Spirit's leading. Phrases such as "My Fruitful Year, Year of Higher Level, Unstoppable Blessings", etc. are declared. These are supposedly good words sown in the hearts of men with many rejoicing in anticipation of their fulfillment. However, it is seen that as the year progresses, many are found in doubt, many are in distress and many abandon as lies the good words which they received regardless of its genuineness because they are experiencing the contrary.

The disappointment of weeds appearing in many will result from slothfulness in making sure that the Word of God which they received ran its full course (2 Thessalonians 3:1). The parable in Matthew 13:24-30 shows the devils response to prophecy: It is almost immediate, waiting for no one to settle before sowing his evil seeds. This happens when we neglect our duties as watchmen and fall asleep. We are warned in Psalms 13:3 against sleeping the sleep of death. Therefore, we must enlighten our eyes with God's word, working it and remaining strengthened in the word with persistent prayers among other spiritual weapons.

Being watchful means raising the alarm by actively denouncing anything contrary to God's word and refusing to yield to sin when suspicious movement of the devil is noticed within or externally. Peradventure the enemy has already succeeded early in sowing weeds in words, thoughts and situations, it is the responsibility also of the watchman that the enemy seed is uprooted, overthrown and destroyed as well as sowing again if need be or replanting the good seed of the word that was previously received (Jeremiah 1:10).

Start early in being watchful! Amen.
-Chibo E.C.
