Advertised By Men

31st December 2019

Scripture Reading: Luke 2: 1-40


“And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.” (Luke 2: 17)

When the shepherds left the manger where they saw Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus, they went on to announce what they had just seen. They spread the news of Jesus’ birth abroad. They announced the birth of Jesus to those who were yet to hear about it. They had just seen the Saviour, the Christ, which Israel had been expecting, and they went to tell those who were yet to see. They simply advertised what God had done.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: God will use men to announce you. God will compel men who have heard about you to spread the news of your destiny abroad. God will cause clients who have been satisfied by you to go forth and tell more clients about you; God will cause men who have been blessed by your ministry to go forth and tell the tales of what He is doing through you; men will announce you and put you in the news.

Jesus did not tell those men to speak about Him to anyone; Mary did not beg that her new child be announced. So it was an unsolicited advert. Hear me as I hear the Lord: men shall give you unsolicited advertisement. People you have not even spoken to will hear about you and spread the good news of your greatness and capacity to others; people who you didn’t ask to advertise you will go on to advertise you.

The shepherds were watching their flocks by night when they had an Angelic visitation; and afterwards, they embarked on an advert spree. They actually left their own matters unattended to, just to advertise Jesus. When Jehovah is involved, men will leave their primary assignments and advertise you beyond your current boundaries. When God is for you, people will take your advert as their own job.

Ask God to position men who will announce you to your generation. Ask God to send you men who will take up the job of advertising you.


Men will advertise me freely, in Jesus’ name!
