It’s sixth January! The first Monday of the Decade.I was late to share this but i haven’t missed to all it is supposed to go to. At this moment i am sharing what i was inspired to do towards the end of last year.It’s interesting to share something at the beginning of the year. Something divine and extraordinary to you;It’s called Birth Day Month Connection.
Birth Day Month Connection is going to be a piece of writing about men of God Born in each month.It will be shared ounce in a month on this site.
Throughout the year, we will be sharing a monthly list about men and women of God born in the same month.Like today,those born in January are taking up the show. At the very beginning of a new month, we’ll publish a new post here.Now,thats a good promise to keep throughout the year.
As we usher into the year, let’s celebrate and connect to all those born in January.They are truly a blessing to us and to this generation.People born in January are born to shine and lead.They are celebrated with new year’s songs as they encounter their first breath on earth.
I believe those born in this month or any other month have ever searched about their fellow colleagues born in the same month.By doing that you were starving for a connection-not a physical connection,but rather a connection that doesn’t care about the laws of the land. I wonder what would happen to the world if you could ever meet and strengthen,encourage and lift up each other.
Divine connections are evidence of God’s great love for us. There are divine connections that God has pre-ordained for our lives. The following men of God are priceless people that are very much tied to our destinies and God given assignments.God honors them with His Power, presence, love and brings increase to us through them. Accelerate your growth and activate the plans and purposes of God through them.
My prayer is that as you read more about these men of God, that you recognize a spirit to spirit connection by a power that is greater than all of us to be grounded in love and ministry.
Once you have finished reading the post, comment any man or woman of God you know born in that same month.

9.Pastor Rod Parsley
Pastor Rod Parsley was born January 13, 1957.
Rod Parsley has been clearly called to a pre-eminent position of leadership within the Body of Christ, as his numerous roles – including TV host, evangelist, educator, humanitarian and statesman – will attest. But he’d be the first to tell you that his prominence is solely a function of his willingness to be used by God in extraordinary ways.
He was 19 when he first led a Bible study in his parents’ backyard. In more than 40 years since then, he’s built one of the most important and far-reaching Christian ministries in the United States. He has founded and now leads outreaches with local, national and worldwide reaches.
This New York Times best-selling author has successfully advocated for federal legislation, delivered hundreds of millions of pounds of food and medical supplies to poverty-stricken areas of the world and changed the lives of thousands who will shape the cultural landscape in the next generation. He’s in constant demand to preach the Gospel in pulpits across America and around the world, and to comment publicly on the moral issues of our day. If none of those opportunities had ever presented themselves, though, he’d still be Pastor Parsley, sharing God’s Word with his beloved World Harvest Church, helping his congregation know God as he does.
His other ministries include Valor Christian College; Harvest Preparatory School, an educational institution for local students from preschool through 12th grade; Hispanic and urban-outreach ministries; a national ministerial alliance; Bridge of Hope, a world-wide missions organization.
Through Bridge of Hope, he hosts the television shows “Breakthrough” and “Rod Parsley Now” which air on the Word Network, Daystar and 1,400 other local channels and cable outlets worldwide.
Pastor Parsley is the author of more than 50 books and study guides. He is especially noted for his trilogy of books that call the Church to moral action: Still Silent No More, a manifesto for the “values voter” movement; Culturally Incorrect, a New York Times best seller, and Living on Our Heads. Other of Pastor Parsley’s books include: Be Made Whole, a personal account of his battle and victory over cancer showing scriptures and meditations that built his faith in a healing Jesus, God’s End-Time Calendar, the prophetic meaning behind celestial events and seasons and his landmark book, Repairers of the Breach, rebuilding the old gospel bridge leading today’s society across the chasm of sin, back to the basics of serving Christ.Get his teachings via these links https://www.youtube.com/user/TheOnlineCampus and https://www.rodparsley.com/
Note:The last two men of God went before us but there is an annointing that rests in there “bones”.We should learn from those that came before us;if there are teachings available, let’s do everything to invest in their gold mines of knowledge.
