You are currently viewing Our Month of DIVINE PREPARATION


Welcome to the month of January.

It is so wonderful and amazing to know how much God really cares about you; and how much He loves you. It is also nice to know that God has great things in store for you.

God has wonderful things in store for us, especially in 2024; greater than what your mind can comprehend, greater than what your strength and intelligence can accomplish.

Remember, every month is a city, every city has a gate, and every gate has a key. Whoever owns and holds the key to that gate that leads to the city is able to command that month.

This prophetic declaration will equip you with the right tool that is needed to experience all that is in this month. You will be able to command your day and your month.


Apostle Ese Duke

God has wonderful things for us this month, and especially this year.

God put in my heart the following scripture: Isaiah 43:19

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43:19, KJV)

These are impossibilities becoming possible.

What had been impossible in your life, God says, He is going to do something brand new.

Say “I believe it” and “I receive it.”

Are you ready for some new ideas?

Perhaps you thought you have gotten somewhere in your life? No, you have not even started. God is about to give you some:

  • New ideas
  • New levels
  • New horizon
  • New dreams
  • New determinations
  • New momentum
  • New victories
  • New visions
  • New successes
  • New dimensions

Somebody shout, “Hallelujah!”

It is the dawn of new things, the dawn of a new day. You have to get ready to experience new things. Faith and alignment, together with proper positioning, are necessary.

Somebody shout, “New things!”

By the end of this month, something new will be birthed in your life in the name of Jesus. I mean, what you thought was impossible to accomplish, something new is about to be unleashed over your life.

Let us read 1 Corinthians 2:9,

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9, KJV)

Do you love God? You must believe what God said.

But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. (1 Corinthians 2:10, KJV)

What God has in store for you, many at times, your head tries to fight it because it does not make sense. It is too good to be true. What God has for us this month would help open your spirit to see the reality.

For us to experience new things that God has in store for us, we need to prepare.

Get in position because He drops those ideas in your spirit, not your head. Your head does not always agree with what your spirit is telling you, but preparation precede performance.

Preparation brings tomorrow’s reality because what is already in your spirit has not yet been made obvious, and as you prepare, it brings into your reality what you see in the realm of the spirit.

Whatever you see in the spirit realm is not a solid state (it is in the liquid state); but as you prepare, what you see in the state of the liquid can become solid.

If you do not prepare for the future, you are living for today.


Apostle Ese Duke

Do you believe your future is better than your yesterday? I know many others already started running, they have taken off for this year already, but we are going to prepare for take-off.

We all know about the aircraft and that the power generated during take-offs sustains the aircraft during the journey. Preparation will bring divine encounters and it precedes power.

Preparation precedes blessing, performance, and success. While others are asleep and others are running, we are preparing for take-off. When you prepare for take-off, you can cruise at a high altitude in midair with ease to the place of your destination. You begin to move smoothly because you prepared properly for take-off. So don’t just take off, prepare.

We have a mandate for this month and for this year to pursue, overtake, and recover all.

Say, “Pursue,” “overtake,” “Recover all.”

We must therefore prepare to accomplish this mandate. Overtake and recover all. Let’s look at 1 Samuel 30:8

And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all. (1 Samuel 30:8, KJV)

I decree, you are recovering everything the enemy stole. Let me give you a scripture, Ezekiel 38:7.

Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them. (Ezekiel 38:7,KJV)

Somebody say, “Get ready.”

Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you.” (Joshua 3:5, NIV)

So, to experience your tomorrow, you must prepare today.

Somebody say, “Preparation.”

Looking through the scripture, we can almost conclude that life itself is a continuous preparation because in your journey of life and your walk with God, you are always at a level while also preparing for the next level. Which means that life is a series of constant preparation. We are in a season while being prepared for the next season. For in our lives, there is always our past, our present, and our future.

Your present is a result of how you handled your past. How you handle your present will determine what will happen to you in your future.


Apostle Ese Duke

Tell yourself, “I must prepare.”

That is why the great Apostle Paul made remarkable statements in Philippians 3:12-13

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead (Philippians 3:12-13, NIV)

This month of January being the first month of 2024, our year of divine manifestation, we are going to prepare. Let others take off running or let some be sleeping. You shall prepare.

Say “I will prepare.”

This month of January is our month of DIVINE PREPARATION.

Somebody shout, “Hallelujah!”

For this month, we shall prepare to overtake, to advance and to recover all whatsoever the enemy has stolen. God will give you new ideas, new levels, new determinations, new momentum, new vision, new success, and new dimension to overtake, advance and recover all.

If you receive that, shout, “Amen!”

Let’s celebrate.
