2000 years ago Jesus did it all. He laid it all down, giving His life as a sacrifice and payment on the cross for our sins, redeeming us back to the Father, back into our covenant and kingdom position to receive all that is ours as children of God and joint heirs with Christ. Now every day we each have the opportunity and privilege to receive that gift personally, to embrace it as truth and to receive all that comes with that gift. It takes faith. It takes eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to understand, a heart that says "yes". And for that heart that says "yes", there will be challenges that try your faith, challenges that define and redefine who you are and where you stand in your Kingdom position. But IN Christ you will find all that you need to stay the course, to remain strong in your faith and to walk this walk of faith here on earth. So the Spirit of God wants to encourage you today. Stay the course. Run the race. Keep your eyes on Jesus the Author and Finisher of your faith. Don't give up and don't give in. What Your heavenly Father says and what He has placed in your heart He WILL do. He WILL BE glorified in His children.
"By faith we understand that the worlds were
framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen
were not made of things which are visible."
Hebrew 11: 3
With this exhortation the Lord is prompting me to speak or write some things that He has shown me in the Spirit, declaring and calling "those things that be not as though they were".
As I meditate on the fact that 2000 years ago Jesus disarmed the enemy and made a public display out of him, and that He did it all, paying the price and rising back into His Kingdom position as He watched His enemies bow their knee, I see in the Spirit the Lord punctuating that act in this hour and pouring out His gift of the Holy Spirit, releasing supernatural gifts of healing, power and blessing. On top of these gifts of healing and divine power that He's pouring out through His children, I see God blessing His family by throwing "powerballs" into His house where the enemy of lack, debt and poverty bow it's knee.I see "powerballs" of His blessing, mercy, and generosity, "powerballs" of His greatness and goodness.
"Say to God, 'How awesome are Your works!
Through the greatness of Your power
Your enemy shall submit themselves to You."And I see God opening up the windows of heaven and pouring out a mega-blessing with mega-millions into His house, because He's a mega-God and He has mega-plans for us, and we have mega-work to do for the Kingdom. I see His house and family being abundantly blessed by the provision of His hand, blessed so that they may be a blessing, blessed so that they will be a testimony of His goodness and faithfulness, blessed so that the whole world will see and know that HE is God, that He is in His house, and that He is living and moving through His children. And I see God revealing Himself through His house and family that He has matured, disciplined, tested, and taught, and shown them that "man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God."
Brothers and sisters, we are in for a new season of the revealing of God. He is going to show and manifest Himself in magnificent and tangible ways in this hour so that ALL the world will see and know that JESUS is Lord and that HE is king. They will know that HIS Kingdom has come here on earth, and that it is being manifested and lived out through the lives of His Body and Bride, and that His Kingdom rules here on earth even as it does in heaven.
Thank You, Lord, that You are coming with vengeance and power and causing Your enemies to bow their knee. You are Lord and You are King, and it's at Your name, Jesus, that every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that YOU are Lord.
