Apostle Grace Lubega
Revelation 5:1 (KJV); And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
When the Bible speaks of a book written within and on the backside, it presupposes that a man may have access to some of the content in this book because he can read what is on the back.
A man who has seen only what is written on the back should not assume that he has the full picture of what God is saying.
It is possible to read a few lines in the realm of the spirit and assume that these lines represent the full picture of what God seeks to do in a generation.
Take the example of Apollos. The Bible says in Acts 18:25 that he “was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, KNOWING ONLY the baptism of John.” He preached persuasively but was limited in his knowledge.
Fervency does not mean one has the full picture of God’s message. He may be fervent yet only have read the backside of the book and not what is written within.
Your prayer as a minister of the gospel should be for the Lord to show you the full picture; that you should never minister only from half lines and half glimpses into the realities of divine purpose.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Your prayer as a minister of the gospel should be for the Lord to show you the full picture; that you should never minister only from half lines and half glimpses into the realities of divine purpose.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this word. Thank You for what You are revealing as deep truths to my generation. My spirit is open, to see in full and not in part. You reveal the complete picture of Your divine plan for our times. It is from this completeness that I minister, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
