Don’t Stagger. (Rom 4:20)

The temptation is to stagger.  The overwhelming impossibilities are sometimes more than we can carry without staggering.  Staggering speaks of weakness.  It is doubt.  It is wavering.  It is unbelief.

Whatever you are facing…. do not stagger.  Instead STAND.  “Having done all… stand!”  Some will stagger under the burden.  Others will stagger in unbelief and doubt.  Many will stagger in discouragement and disappointment.  Some will be impatient.  Staggering is the symptom that comes just before falling and falling is failing.    Falling is giving up and backing off and turning back

Abraham “Staggered not…”  He stood.  Even when there was no “hope” he hoped anyway!  He called those things which were not as though they already were.  God is not geared to the fickle world.   He is a God who “Changeth Not.”  Regardless of what is happening in the World, Wall Street or Washington.

Make up your mind to “stagger not…” and to believe God.  Abraham did.  He stood. When he was one hundred years old he still believed he was going to have a son… Not because he “felt like it” but because God said he would. He chose to doubt his body and believe God.

God’s Promises are not dependent on your body, your mind, your strength, or your ability.  It is your faith that reaches out and brings God’s Promises from the Spiritual World into the Natural World.  Therefore, don’t waver.  Resist doubt.  Don’t be impatient.   TRUST GOD.

These are days of great possibility and potential.  In the face of problems and obstacles and hindrances that the world calls impossible… God reminds us that all things are possible through Him.

God will make your impossibilities possible.

 

If you will only believe

Do it now.

Today is the day of salvation…Now is the accepted time…

Some reading this will continue to live and look and see only in the realm of the natural.  Some will put this down and fall right back into the same trap and same bondage and same defeat and same failure.

Some will stay sick and stay whipped and stay depressed and stay lost.  Some will continue to be harassed and vexed and tormented by the devil and demons.  Some will say “next time” or “later” or “not today.”

Some may slip away and never be as touched by the Holy Ghost as you are being touched right now.

Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call on Him while He is near…

He is Here.  He can be found right where you are this minute.   He is near.  He is calling you and prompting you to DO IT TODAY.  You have intended to.  You have planned to.  You want to.  The best place to start is right where you are.   The best time to start is right now.

So DO IT.  You need healing.  You need forgiving.  You need peace.  You need assurance.  You need to know that you are loved.  You need power over the devil and addictions and weaknesses.   You may need to start over again.  You may need to undo some things and you may need to do some things.

It is time for a Spiritual Re-boot. Today is your day for a new beginning.

Here is my bold confession for today:

“I am a member of the body of Christ

The decision has been made.

The die has been cast.

I have stepped over the line.

I have made my decision.

I am a Disciple of Jesus Christ.

I won’t let up, ease up, back up or give up.

I will not slow down, back down, be complacent or stuck.

My past is redeemed and my future is secure.

I am done with low living, sight walking, small planning, unbent knees, wimpy dreams, weak visions, mundane talking,  greedy penny-pinching giving and dwarfed goals.

I no longer have to have my way, be first, number one, recognized, regarded or rewarded.

I will live by faith and work with God by the Power of the Holy Ghost

My pace is set, may step is fast, my goal is pleasing God, my road is narrow, my way may be rough, my companions may be few, but my Guide is reliable and my mission is clear.

I cannot be bought, compromised, deterred, lured away, turned back, diluted or delayed.

I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the place of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.

I won’t give up, let up, back up, or shut up. I will stay preached up, prayed up, paid up, and stored up, for the cause of Jesus Christ

I am a committed disciple of Jesus Christ.

I will go until He returns, give until I drop, preach until all hear and remain faithful until He comes.  And when He comes to get His own, He will have no problem recognizing me.

My identity is clear and my flag is flying.

I am not ashamed.

I will never be ashamed.

I will speak up.

This is the time I boldly, fearlessly and courageously Stand for God… no matter when.  No matter what. No matter where.

The only Thing that matters to me is Jesus Christ.”

 

I am His

Seems that everyone is interested in the harvest.

The masses are ready for the crops to come in.  They are hungry and weary.  The time for the increase is anxiously waited for.  Believers want the blessings of harvest.  They want crops.  They want fruit.  They want increase.  Unfortunately few are interested in Seed Time.

There will be no harvest if there has been no planting.  What we do with the seed determines what kind of harvest we will reap.  The seed amount determines the harvest amount.  The more seed the more harvest.  The less seed the smaller the harvest.  The seed we plant determines the harvest we reap.

There is a Bible Principle that is very important when we consider the harvest we want.  Since most are interested in reaping an abundant harvest, it is important to understand that the harvest we reap will be according to the seed we plant.

Like begets like.  This is a principle that is built in and basic in all of Creation.  Like begets like.  Cows have cows.  Pigs have pigs.  Horses have horses.  Corn begets corn.  Peas beget peas.  Beans beget beans.  Like begets (produces) like.  Birds have birds.  Fish have fish.  Every kind of life begets the same kind of life.  The kind of seed you plant determines the kind of harvest you get.  When a farmer wants cotton, he plants cotton seed.  When a farmer wants beans he plants beans.  When a farmer wants potatoes, he plants potatoes.

Like begets like.

What crop do you want?

Then, what are you planting?

What will it take?

What will it take to bring Real Revival to the Church?

Do we have to bottom out before we look up?

  • We have built nice buildings, but this didn’t work.
  • We have up-graded our facilities and padded our pews.
  • We have paved our parking lots and landscaped our buildings.
  • We have established great programs, but this didn’t work.
  • We have brought in outstanding “world-class” preachers and evangelists and teachers, but this didn’t work.
  • We have hired staff members and started Sunday Schools.
  • We have promoted, organized, educated and funded but this didn’t work.
  • We have established educational programs and Bible Institutes and recreational projects and we have preached on TV and Radio, we have published books and pamphlets, but none of these have really produced New Testament Results.

What will it take?

  • It is going to take hungering.
  • It is going to take thirsting.
  • It is going to take longing.
  • It is going to take seeking.
  • It is going to take searching.
  • It is going to take rearranging priorities.
  • It is going to take repentance.
  • It is going to take humility.
  • It is going to take praying.
  • It is going to take surrendering.
  • It is going to take forgiving.
  • It is going to take loving.
  • It is going to take a divine visitation.
  • It is going to take a Holy Ghost baptism.
  • It is going to take a Pentecostal renewal.

Only God can do what must be done to activate the Body of Christ.  And when we make our Move, God will make His Move.

Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord…  Zech 4:6

 

It’s our move

New Ground.

My farmer grandfather always saved his New Ground for his watermelon crop.  He said if you want the biggest, the best and the sweetest watermelons, plant the watermelon seed in New Ground.

New Ground is the Best Place to plant the Word Seed.  We have been cleansed by the Blood.  We have had all the stumps removed and the rocks hauled away.  We have been leveled and cleaned and nurtured by the work of the Holy Ghost.  Our hearts are ready for the seed (Word) to be planted and for life to come forth.  Sometimes we produce a crop or two.  But, then, something happens.

  • Neglect moves in.
  • We become weary or tired or discouraged.
  • Somebody hurt my feelings.
  • No one spoke to me. The music is too loud.
  • The preaching is too long.
  • The worship is too radical.
  • Nobody notices me.
  • I don’t have a place.
  • My gift is being ignored.
  • I am being overlooked.
  • God does not answer my prayers.
  • This faith stuff is not for me.
  • I tried but things got worse.

Are you in here somewhere?  Have you been thinking these things?

Unless we are constantly producing regular crops, our hearts be­come fallow ground.  Hard.  Crusty.  Dry.  Dead.  Lifeless.  In need of breaking up.  Until it is broken, the heart will remain cold, lifeless, dead and unfruitful.

… break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. Hosea 10:12

Show me Jesus, ever always,

That I may broken, humble be,

And you, O Loving Father

May show others Him…  through me

The Glory of God.

When God created Adam his outstanding characteristic was the Glory of God.

Man was made in the Image (likeness, shadow) of God.  Man shared the Glory of God.  He became like God.  He received the Character and Nature of God.  He received the Mind of God.  He received the Power of God.

He literally took God’s Place on the earth as the One in Control.  He had the Glory.  He lived in the Glory.  He walked in the Glory.  He manifested the Glory of God.  All creation Knew.  Saw.  Witnessed.  Beheld.  Everything living and everything inanimate recognized the Glory of God in Adam.

The real problem began when man lost the Glory.  Adam sinned and when he did he lost the Glory.  The Glory departed.  And death entered.  Where Glory was now death is.   “Death entered…”  And death will stay until the Glory is restored.

When a person gets saved, he comes into the Glory of God.  He is crowned with the Glory that Adam lost.  Adam had the Glory and he lost it.

We are born without the Glory and at Salvation we get it.  When we get the Glory of God we get Life.

He that hath the Son hath life. 1 John 5:12

I am come that ye might have life…  John 10:10

Glory and Life are synonymous; Death and no Glory are synonymous.

The full manifestation of the Glory of God will be the last thing that takes place before Jesus comes back.  The Church, this age and this hour are destinations for the Glory of God.  We are purposed, created and brought into this narrow band of time in order that we might come into the full manifestation of the Glory of God.

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.   Isa 60:1

 

This is our time
