DIVINE RESTORATION.

“And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you”

Joel 2: 25.

Compliments of the season!

As the curtain drops on Year 2022 and nature and divine providence ushers us into the beauty of an immaculate and prospective Year 2023, we cannot help but appreciate our omniscient Creator for counting us worthy to be partakers of His heavenly benedictions and for the enabling grace to be part of the project 2023.

Taking a deep retrospection into the outgoing Year 2022, the avalanche of actions, inactions, reactions, the transactions and various positive conditions and negative contradictions that pervaded our personal, national, social, political, economic and spiritual lives; one can easily conclude without mincing words that, it was really an eventful year. Indeed words and space will fail me should I try to enumerate all that transpired in the year under review, in all; we give glory to God that we are still standing.

So, as we journey into a new dispensation, we take solace and refuge in the leadership of our never changing God in our ever changing world. He remains our ever present help in trouble. Our God has never left us in the dark anytime we saunter into the unknown; He always guides us with His eyes. Our walk in St. Joseph’s Chosen Church of God, is a walk with the Voice of God and the Holy Spirit, who guides and directs our paths.  As a Church, for us to attract the grace that powers the moment, we must be in alignment with the current move of God. Yes. As a Body of believers, it is imperative that we remain constantly in touch with heavens’ current policy framework for humanity, especially as it concerns the St. Joseph’s Covenant family. Beloved, at all times we must never be out of sync with the current demand of heaven if we are to be relevant in this dispensation.

To this end, the guiding light, the road map and the spiritual compass for Year 2023, to St. Joseph’s Chosen Church of God is on ‘DIVINE RESTORATION.’  2023 is our Year of “DIVINE RESTORATION”. It is a year of recovering lost grounds, taking back misplaced territories and expanding the frontiers of God’s divine empire on earth.

Beloved! As Heaven’s Functionaries that will be holding forth for Zion, we are expected to cover great millage in the spirit. There is a script our individual life’s is supposed to fulfill, orchestrated and ordained by the divine, whose framework we are expected to radiate. We are custodian of a dimension with God that can keep the heritage of a generation. It is through you and I that the intention of God is to be made manifest, making ourselves God’s conduit pipe for expression, we are an effulgence of the radiant splendor of His glory where the love of God finds expression. That is why our omniscient God want His children to be better positioned to occupy till He comes. This can only be done when we are DIVINELY RESTORED.

The Devil has stolen so many things from the children of God due to carelessness, lukewarmness, complacency, presumptuousness, prayerlessness, absentee Christianity and not being vigilant during unguarded moments in addition to various acts of disobedience. You cannot defeat a 24/7 devil with a part time Christianity. We are up against a defeated and enraged foe that doesn’t observe rules of engagements. To this end, so many Christians are today experiencing: failed businesses, collapsed and unsteady marriages, chronic health challenges, various relationship issues, troubled homes and families, lack of peace and joy, spiritual downturn, lost gifts and talents, poor zeal/commitments to the things of God, withdrawn fellowship, lack of love of the brethren, unexplainable financial/economic hardship, profitless hardwork and deprivation, spiritual oppression, failure at the edge of breakthrough and stagnancy  etc.

God never intended us to accept defeat in any area of our life, for we are beings that carry His essence. He doesn’t want us to give up or take flight when we are expected to fight and be in warfare, He is A GOD OF RESTORATION. Regardless of what you are passing through our God of possibilities will DIVINELY RESTORE you in Jesus name.

God’s plan for restoration always involve restoring things to you better than they were or would have been. That is why in this New Year 2023, you must let your alignment with God kingdom matters be your preoccupation, be always in synergy with the Holy Spirit. In the spirit realm, the authority you command is a function of your growth and proportionate to the height you are operating from in God’s economy. So, you need to go higher in wisdom, knowledge, understanding and power in order to be very effective and relevant in this divine civilization.    

OUR GOD IS A GOD OF RESTORATION. The God of a second chance, in God, opportunity does not come but once, but opportunity will come again.

 For there is hope of a tree if it be cut down, that it will sprout again And that the tender branch thereof will not cease”.   Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant”.    -Job 14:7-9.

 After the fall of man in Genesis 3, all that took place from Genesis 4 to the book of revelation has to do with a well-articulated and spiritually orchestrated RESTORATION PLAN to bring man back into God’s original plan for him, starting with the birth of Christ, the redemption through death and finally, the second coming to take man to his eternal home.  The word “RE” has to do with a return to something


 Restoration is returning something to a former owner, place or condition. It is an act of repairing, rehabilitation, rebuilding, reconstruction and redecoration of something to a better condition or operation. It is also an act of returning something or someone to a satisfactory state. Restoration can take place in both the physical and supernatural realms. It is when you bring something back to what it used to be – To its original glory, a better and satisfactory condition.

God’s plans for restoration always involve restoring things to you better than they were from inception. His RESTORATION AGENDA always supersedes or exceeds the loss suffered, making the victim to be the major beneficiary of the transaction.

“But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold, he shall give All his substance of his house”. Prov. 6:31.

In the case of Job in the bible after all that he suffered in the hands of the devil and God restored him, the bible recorded in Job 42:12-15.

“So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning; For he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand Carmel and A thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses”.    He had also seven sons and three daughters……and in all the land were no women so fair as the daughters of Job and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren”

The thought of God towards us are thought of peace and not evil to bring us to an expected end (Jer. 29:11). Restoration comes when that expected end or program of God towards us is attained.


 Today everything around us yearns for “DIVINE RESTORATION” in all facets of our human existence and endeavour, from the secular to the ecclesiastical lays the quest for positive change and turnaround and this, the human enterprise has not been able to bring into reality.

The Church of God today not only St. Joseph’s is in dire need of DIVINE RESTORATION. Our Christianity has been greatly diluted; the era of Berian Christianity is over and readily replaced with an itching- eared and fault finding generation. The lack of discernment today is a major contributor to the growing voices of deception from the Devil, even operating from holy grounds. Strange, bizarre doctrines and voices have overtaken our altars and the Christian community, and the signals are not just conflicting but misleading. Today we have accepted a cheap gospel, a cheap Christianity without power and capacity and we are daily losing touch with the gravity of His essence.

The awe that greets our Worship Centers/Churches, Christian  gatherings are no longer there, genuine worship and pursuit of holiness and holy living is alien to the present brand of worshippers, and sermons about heaven and hell and the rapture/ second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ has little or no space in many pulpits. Today we are believing God for DIVINE RESTORATION of the power of old, the glory of the Church and the love and fellowship of the early brethren and worshippers. Our God will DIVINELY RESTORE the Church in Jesus name,

In the political front, all the electioneering, campaigns and promises by the various political parties and platforms are creating structures and mechanism geared towards human RESTORATION of our Nation, Nigeria to her former greatness through human capital investment, government policies and framework, but ironically, it is evident overtime that all the efforts geared towards national rebirth has been futile and a monumental failure. Beloved, it is crystal clear that it is only through DIVINE RESTORATION  that the much anticipated national turn around and recovery be actualized, and they forget that by strength shall no man prevail, and that only a living Saviour can save a dying Nation. Our God will RESTORE Nigeria in Jesus’ name.

On personal and individual perspective, in the book of Ezekiel 37

In the valley of dried bones, in vs. 2 the Bible recorded that, “and behold there were very many in the open valley And they were very dry”.

 Today so many lives are spiritually dry, so many health, finance, career, businesses, families, are lacking life and vitality. In vs. 7 it is even recorded that the bones were not only dried but scattered, not together, Symbolizing the scattered state of so many people’s businesses, health, marriages, families etc. But when God RESTORATION PROGRAM came, the dried bones did not only receive life but was transformed into a great army, a great destiny a great family, business etc. because God’s RESTORATION has come, and he will answer you in  Jesus name,

OUR GOD IS A GOD OF RESTORATION. Even before the fall of man, the lamb was slain from the foundation of the earth {Rev. 13:8b}. Preparatory to man’s eventual fellowship RESTORATION.

This year 2023, in line with the guiding light of the year, every individual is expected to write a list of where they want DIVINE RESTORATION in the lives, this will be in form of a prayer request and submit to their ministers and choose a Sunday in January for a special prayer session for DIVINE RESTORATION. With the prayer request paper in a bowl to be placed on the Healing Ground; this prayer should continue as a general and private prayer point from time to time. As God restores you in one area, you are expected to testify and thank God for what He has done.

The Devil will stop at nothing in trying to keep us from being grateful because he knows that thanksgiving is an important key to breakthrough. Be wise! So as you are believing God for restoration, “enter His gates with thanksgiving and His court with praise and be thankful unto Him and bless His holy name, this is one of the most powerful spiritual weapon you have.

Prayers should afterward continue in other areas where your restoration is being expected, and our faithful God will perfect all that concerns you in Jesus name. Isaiah 42:22.

Beloved God has prepared 2023 to RESTORE his people, so as many that are faithful, dedicated and committed to the dictates of the Holy Spirit but have suffered shipwreck, set-backs, misfortune or discomfort in one way or the other, the GOD OF RESTORATION will visit you.

As many that are trusting God for a turn around and positive outcomes, the GOD OF RESTORATION is your God.

For those who have been tied down by circumstances beyond their control, problems that have defiled all manner of solutions and are presently mourning secretly in Zion, rejoice for you are a candidate for A DIVINE RESTORATION.


Once again, I wish you a prosperous New Year 2023

Remain blessed!

Apostle Dr. W. U. Omoregie JP, FCPDM
