Prophetic Time Table

So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom - Psalms 90:12
God has a time table for each and every one of us and the earlier we discover it, the better it is for us. In the psalm of Moses, Ps.91:12, Moses prayed unto God and said - ..teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. He said in the fourteenth verse, "satisfy us early with your mercy"...and that confirms what I just said - that the earlier the better. It is God`s will that we fulfill our purpose and he designed times and seasons for the fulfillment of this purpose. I have searched through scriptures and I have found out that there are different assignments for different periods of our lives and I would be sharing on that, starting from age 17 to age 70 and above.
At 17 a child should have located his or her giftings. At about age 17, David was a psalmist, a shepherd, and a warrior. He had discovered his gifts and was already exercising them. At 17 (Genesis 37:2), Joseph was a dreamer. He was aware of his ability to dream and he also told his dreams to his family members. I started prophesying at age 17 too and I believe at age 17, a youth should have discovered his or her endowments.
At age 20, according to the book of Numbers 1:45, a man is qualified to fight in the battle field. Age 20 is a period in which a man can secure a job and start working. I was called into the prophetic ministry at age 20. Tunde Bakare and Sam Aiyedogbon, my fellow nigerian prophets were also called at that age. A wise man said - a man should be handsome at 20.
Age 30 is the age of maturity and fullness of time. David became a king at the age of 30 (2 Samuel 5:4). Thirteen years after he was anointed. Joseph became a prime minister at the age of 30 (Genesis 41:46). Ezekiel started seeing visions when he was 30 yrs old. Our Lord Jesus Christ started his earthly ministry at the age of 30. For the jews, 30 signifies maturity (Number 4:3). This also applies to all races and ethnic groups on the earth. People believe a man or woman of 30 is matured. Men of 30 are strong and healthy. A wise man said - a man should be strong at 30.
Age 40 is an age of change (Numbers 32:13). 40 yrs have passed and the man is expected to have made his decisions before 40. People say - a fool at 40 is a fool forever. 40 in the bibles signifies change. After 40 days with God, Moses was ready to face the people with what God has for them. After 40 days of camping with God in the wilderness, Jesus was ready for his assignment. At the age of 40 you should have made your decision and be ready for a change. A wise man said - a man should be wise at 40
In the book of Numbers 8:25, 50 is the age of retirement. The Jews were recruited at 20 and at age 50 they retire from serving in the tabernacle. Some men still practice that today. Tunde Bakare retired at 50 and started another phase of his ministry. David Oyedepo planned to do that too before was 50. At 50, your life`s purpose should have been fulfilled to a very great extent. A man should be fulfilled at 50 and should have gathered a wealth of information and assets before 50. A wise man said - a man should be rich at 50.
Age 70 and above
I believe this period is a period of handing over to the next generation. David handed over to Solomon at age 70 after ruling for fourty years. Age 70 is the age of rest. David rested at 70 after many years of struggles. Some people live beyond 70. Kenneth Hagin, Bill Bright and Derek Prince lived over 80. Some even clock above 100 yrs old. These periods are classified and summed up as one - age 70 and above and it is a good time to say - I have fought the good fight of faith and I am now ready to take my leave. Selah.
