I can think of any number of people that are filled with many talents and gifts. In fact I personally know of folks that have a far better voice than a Michael Jackson, better preaching skills than a Bishop T.D. Jakes or they’re a better businessmen than a Donald Trump.
So, what is it that makes these folks different from the above mentioned names? Well my friend to your surprise the difference is simply timing! You see my friend, the recognition, value and potential profit of your talents, gifts and abilities is solely dependent on the right time in spite of how talented or gifted you maybe!
This may seem crazy to the average person, but our bibles makes this understanding abundantly clear. Scripture reminds us of the following, ” To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven” Ecclesiastes 3:1. This is such a powerful scripture and by extension a challenging spiritual law. In that, it’s making clear to the reader that everything that will ever take place in one’s life there is a specific season and time assigned to its function or performance simply because it’s pregnant with purpose. In other words what you have for the most part in terms of your gifts or talent, is to benefit others rather than yourself. The reality is you’re just a conduit or deliverer if you may. If you find yourself being anxious and more concern about what your talents and gifts will do for you instead of its purpose for others. Then it becomes easier to miss or misinterpret your seasons and times or at best pollute its purpose if you do manage to achieve your season and times. I promise you, your gifts and talents once shared or ministered to others will automatically benefit you or reward you. Gifts and talents released in the right season, advances and positions the possessor of those gifts and talent in areas and with folks that really could not have happen any other way.
To take it a step further, a season, is understood to mean an assigned appointment and the understanding of time is the tenure allowed for that particular season or appointment. For example, let say you have a talent for singing, well according to the law of time and season in Ecclesiastes 3:1 you talents and gifts guarantees you a season or appointment for its recognition and a certain amount of time for its purpose to be accomplish.
So the reality is, you should not be on a quest looking to some place or person to sow a financial seed to, so that God will cause someone to recognize your talent. Instead your request to God should be, “Lord please equip me with the ability to discern or recognize when its my season and time to display the gifts and talents you’ve given me because according to your law I am guaranteed the season and time for the talents and gifts you gave me in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
As a quick reminder our gifts and talents are to benefit others, ultimately with God receiving all the glory. However, once performed at the right time and season the spiritual law dictates that these gifts and talents will expand the borders of the possessor of those gifts and talents while advancing them before great men, Proverbs 18:16.
I will end with this! Seasons and times are guaranteed for all the gifts and talents distributed to mankind by God. However, there is no guarantee that we’ll all meet those seasons and times. The number one reason for folks missing their assigned seasons and times to display their gift that God had promised will make room for them, will primarily be due to connecting with the wrong, people, places and things. These my friend are the agents of delay and missed opportunities!

Every evil altar that has been raised against your life, be it an altar of failure, an altar of backwardness, an altar of fear, an altar of madness, an altar of confusion, an altar of barrenness, an altar of false prophets, an altar of affliction, an altar of sickness and infirmity, an altar of poverty, an altar of procrastination and laziness, an altar of evil covenants etc. must be destroyed by fire in the name of Jesus.
God specifically advised his children in Deuteronomy 7:5 of the following, “But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their “ALTARS”, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with FIRE!”
You must pray, asking God to specifically destroy all altars that maybe controlling certain aspect of your life. Most Christians are completely unaware that the reason why certain areas of their lives are limited and restricted is because an evil altar is speaking against their destiny.
In our teaching on last night with “Facing our Journey International Ministries”. We meticulously took our time working our way through the word of God in Judges chapter 6 only to discover the revelation of how an evil altar although operated by one person can cause an entire nation to be held in bondage and limited in life. What was even more amazing was the fact that the folks in this particular chapter were the people of God!
Based on the spiritual principles we discovered in this detail teaching. We were forced to observe our own lives and by extension the lives of our family and those that we are or were connected to in search of the trend of negative patterns based on the teaching that would have automatically revealed evidence of altars that had been raised up against us.
We learned that in Judges 6:1 it clearly said, “And the children of Israel did “EVIL” in the sight of the Lord: and the Lord delivered them into the hand of Midian for seven years”. As a result of this the following verses revealed in detail the hardship the nation of Israel experienced such as being forced out of their homes and having to live in caves. Israel’s harvest was taken by their oppressors etc. It got so bad that they eventually cried out to God in a desperate attempt to understand what is it that they did to deserve such punishment in the promise lands and why wasn’t God fighting for his people? Many of us as Christians ask the exact same questions today. We do not realize that there are spiritual laws that evil men and women are taking advantage of via the operation of evil altars, to suspended the promises of God. of course none of this can happen outside human agreement and participation. As a reminder, Jesus clearly said, that we making the word of God of none effect because of our tradition, Mark 7:13.
Gideon, at one point questioned the angel that was sent by God asking him where are the miracles that God had promised? It was at this point that it was revealed to Gideon by the angel that Gideon’s father had an evil altar making sacrifices unto Baal. Gideon was then instructed by the angel to destroy the evil altar of his father. In other words destroy the source of the spiritual root that has been manifesting the hardship they were experiencing. Amazingly, it was only when Gideon destroyed his father’s evil altar and set up an altar unto God along with a sacrifice unto God that they were finally able to participate in the blessing God Almighty always had in place for them that was hijack by Satan as a result of Gideon’s father evil altar.
My friend, hear me today! It is revelation knowledge such as the above that has been replaced with seed offerings, miracle cloths, miracle oils etc. When the reality is, God desire is that his people study to show themselves approved and begin the application of his laws, principles, commands with an end result of enjoying and experiencing a better quality of life. As I have mention on so many occasions, scripture says, “My people are destroyed because of a lack of spiritual knowledge” Hosea 4:6.
Take this time right this very moment asking God to destroy by spiritual fire every evil altar erected by your ancestors, living family members or whoever that has been working against you and your family. Say to your self or out loud, “Lord, just like in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah when you sent physical fire and brimstone upon those two cities, I am asking you to send spiritual fire and brimstone against every evil altar that has been raised against me and my family. For most of you a fast along with such prayer would be necessary.
