MY STAR – PART 1
Star is a sign, an emblem or an identification that distinguishes a person. It is star that identified the Lord Jesus Christ. Star is a thing that draws people’s attention unto a person. It is your star that places you on your right hierarchy. Your star will speak for you as she speaks for Jesus. It is star that shows a difference between twins, who come from the same parent; but their degree of progress in life may defer because of star value. Another name for star is glory or explosion. It is the star of a person that speaks for him or her. When your star breaks forth, it will come with a limelight. No wonder, a musician says: “My star to reign has come; I have arrived. The musician recognizes that his star has started to glow and radiate in glory now, and his life and social contacts move up tremendously.
Star is a lifter of an individual. We have four types of stars, as narrated by the Bible: The first type is called the sun-star, the second is moon-star, the third is star- among-stars, and the fourth is the sand-star. The first, second, and the third are powerful stars. It is Jesus’ star that exposed his birth, and three wise-men beheld his kingship-star and started out looking for him.
Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem in Judea, during the reign of King Herod. The three wise-men from the eastern lands arrived in Jerusalem, and went straight to the Palace, asking, “Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him (Mat.2:2). King Herod was perturbed by their question, and retorted that there was no news of any child birth in the Palace; how came about the baby they were looking for. The wise- men told the king that the star sighted in the east was that of a king; and that was the reason they came to locate the baby in the palace. Then King Herod told them to go to Bethlehem and search carefully for the child. And if the baby was found, they should come back and tell him so that he could go and worship him too.
In Mat.2:9, the Bible stated: “When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. When the men saw the child, they were filled with joy, and they fell down before him and worshipped him. They opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. The star of the child bestows all honour and respect. Jesus, as a day-old baby, carried a star that brought bounteous blessing for him. I now prophesy: Your star will now show forth; the star that everyone will honour; the star that will bring blessings and gifts to you; the star that will bring helps to you: I decree, this star, show forth, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit!
The star of baby Jesus spoke for Him, even at the very moment He was born, that people had to visit Him, the King of the Jews, the Saviour of the world.
I prophesy: The star that will invite your benefactors; the star that will bring people who will redeem you from your shallow pit, the people that will place you on a new thing; the star that will change your glory; the star that will speak for you in your absence: I decree, as a prophet of God, very shortly, your star shall bring your benefactors before you!
If you are a member of this Church, identified as “Ina lo need”, where witches tremble before you, where idols avoid you, where devil sets you aside; you lack one thing: You need your star to start speaking for you; and you need any of the three powerful stars earlier mentioned.
Concerning Joseph, the Bible states: “And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, behold, I have dreamed a dream more, and behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars make obeisance to me” (Gen.37:9).
Apostle Paul said that the sun has its own glory, and the moon has its own glory: glories are not on the same level. Out of twelve stars, eleven stars bow down for the twelfth star. Joseph is the twelfth star. Joseph’s brethren are the eleven sand-stars; his father and mother are the sun and moon-stars.
In Gen.22:17, the Bible states: “That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the star of the sand which is upon the sea shore . . . .” In this scripture God mentions two stars – that of sand-star and star-among-stars. Sand-star is ordinary star that is ordained to give obeisance. The interpretation of the four different stars is this: All people share the four stars according to the dimension of their glory and station in life. The first star (sun-star) is referred to as noon-star. This is carried by individuals who assume presidential or gubernatorial positions in life. If you take a note of the noon-sun, it shines brightly and backs out repeatedly; its brightness is not permanent, and that shows that presidential or gubernatorial position is not permanent. The next, moon-star, is referred to as night-star. The star is allocated to royalty. Remember Mat.2:9-10, when Jesus was born – the King of the Jews – some men saw the moon-star in the sky, forecasting it to be royalty, the star of a king. They sought for him, bowed down for him, and offered him precious gifts.
Some time, a king-maker consulted me for counselling. He brought three names and enjoined me to pick the prominent contestant. I asked for God’s knowledge, and I saw a moon-star dangling on the head of one of the three candidates, and I told the king-maker my insight. He said, “The star-lodged candidate lives in America, and he didn’t visit his Nigeria home for years.” I said, “All we need is the relevant star; the star-lodged candidate should be sent for and be told that he would be enthroned.” Thereafter, the America-resident arrived in Nigeria with his wife, and the couple was led to our Church. I repeated my declaration to the contestant, but he expressed negative assumption on the basis of his long absence from his Nigeria home, and that he had never established any project in the city. I instructed him to offer prayer on the altar, and return to his home town, with the assurance that he would win the contest; or other wise, annul my ministerial position. There were twenty-one contestants, all of which were dropped, except the America-based, a Doctor, and his counterpart, a Professor. The Doctor was eliminated several times, but was recalled for reasons beyond the king-makers’ control. The Professor was supposed to have had an edge over the Doctor, because he was a long-time resident of the town, and had established a School and a big hospital in the town. That notwithstanding, the Doctor, an America-based won the contest, in line with my declaration! His star spoke for him, and Governor Mimiko of Ondo State gave him the staff of office as a first-class king.
Whenever I had an insight of anyone bestowed with a moon-star, I used to ask: “Are you from a royal family?” If the response was positive, I would wish Fire paves way for him to be enthroned. Kings are known for staying on the throne until death, while political appointee’s tenure is ephemeral.
The star-among-stars is usually called leadership star. She commands a lot of respect from low and high ranking people, because she is very powerful. Joseph is bestowed with star-among-stars. Genesis 50:18-20 states that when the star of Joseph came forth, his brethren fell down before his face. They pleaded with Joseph that their father said Joseph should not take revenge. Joseph said, “Fear not, for am I in the place of God? As for you, you thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good to save much people alive.”
As mentioned, the star-among-stars is powerful, and demands respect from people of all ranks. Pastor Adeboye carries this star. Everyone, low and highly placed (including the President and high traditional Chief) pay obeisance to him.
I pray, and I decree, as a Prophet of God: The star-among-stars, the leadership star, the star that will sky-rocket you, the star that will uplift you to higher level, let her show forth in you right now, in the name of the Father, and of the son, and of the Holy Spirit!
