The Church gets in trouble when it loses its passion for God.

This is the root cause of all backsliding.  This is why Christians become carnal.  This is why Christians fall away.  This is why Christians slip back into the world.  They lose their passion for God.

In the Book of Revelation, John spoke of a Church that “left its first love.”  It lost its passion for God.  Its members lost their “first love.”  John told the Church at Ephesus that God “had something against them” even though they: (1) had good works, (2) had patience, (3) had  intolerance toward evil, (4) had correctly judged false apostles and (5) had not fainted or quit.

They had fallen into the trap of becoming a good, vigorous, hardworking, sin-hating, determined and committed organization but without really Loving GOD.  They had lost or left their “first love.”  Their hearts had grown cold.  They lost their passion for God.

They were doing all the right things but they were doing them for the wrong reason.  You can be “good” and “moral” and “obedient” and still miss the boat.  If your motivation is from your head and not your heart, God has “somewhat against thee…”

Every GOOD WORK must issue forth from a passion for God… from heart hunger and not from head reasoning.   Head reasoning is based on externals… on “doing,” on the letter of the law, on doctrine and dogma on religion and form and tradition… all these are inadequate and illegitimate.

 

God looks at what is in your heart and not what is in your head

God’s heart has never changed.

His heart has always been inclined toward man.  It is now and it always has been.  Man was originally created in order that God might have a family.  God wanted companionship.  God wanted fellowship.  God wanted relationship.  God wants to love and He wants to be loved.    God wanted to have a family to love and to bless and to keep unto Himself.

This is the Heart of God.

God wants to have children that will reciprocate His love.  God is Love, God loves and God wants to be loved.  Do you realize that God made the heavens solely for the benefit of earth? Do you know that God made the earth solely for the benefit of man?  Can you believe that God created all animal life and plant life solely for the benefit of man?  Everything and all things that God created by His power, were and are created for the benefit of man.

And God made man for Himself.

All of creation is designed to sustain human life.  Scientists are now beginning to recognize that the entire universe has been created and calibrated to support and sustain human life right here on earth.   The original Plan God had is still the same.   Even though satan entered and Adam sinned and death was brought into the earth, God has Eternally Purposed for Man to be His Own.

There are indications everywhere.

There is a witness in the heart of every turned-on believer.  God is moving.  The earth is responding.  The world is waiting.  All creation is anxious… The church is being revived.  This is the hour.  Something BIG is about to happen.

There is a drawing toward God.  The Holy Spirit is reaching into the hearts of men (all kinds of people) and drawing and attracting…   inexorably, as a magnet draws iron, pulling them toward God.  It is relentless.  It is miraculous. It is supernatural.   There is hunger.  And this hunger is indicative of the Divine Plan and Purpose of God manifesting in this hour.

You feel the drawing.  Right now.  There is a Divine Stirring deep down inside your spirit.  It (your relationship with Jesus) is not like it used to be.  It is changing.  There is a dissatisfaction, an urgency, which is driving you to seek His Face and a determination to be conformed more and more into His Image.

The things of the world are becoming less and less important to you.   The reason for your very existence is coming into focus.

You are being drawn into the Glory of God…

 

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.  2Co 3:18

He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. John 7:38

The Body of Christ should come together with the River Flowing.

Most come to Church to get filled.  They are dry and empty.  They have been drained by the demands of the unbelieving world and the constant constraints of the enemy.  They are tired.  Weary.  Frustrated.  Needy.

They come in need.  This is not bad, but it is not the Best.  To come filled up is better.  Filled up and running over.

Can you imagine what kind of a church service we would have if everybody came filled up and running over?  No need to get “worked up” or “pumped up”  or “psyched up”… but come in rushing as a Mighty River.  Come in joyful, exuberant, excited, expecting, believing with great anticipation.

A House full of people with Rivers of Living water gushing out of their inner beings.

 

It would be heaven on earth

If you are a Believer, you have the nature of God in you.

And the Nature of Jesus in you.  And the Nature of the Holy Ghost in you.

This means that you can think like God… Talk like God… Act like God… Believe like God… And have the same Faith that God has, the same Life God has and the same Victory God has.

You do not have to yield to the pressures of the present.  You do not have to give in… give up or give over.  You do not have to quit.  Or compromise.  Or feel weak and insecure.  You are:

  • The Head and not the tail
  • Above and not beneath
  • Blessed and not cursed
  • Strong and not weak
  • Well and not sick
  • Rich and not poor
  • More than a conqueror

And you can do all things Through Christ Who is your strength.  Now.  Today.  Every day.

Where you go, God goes.  You take Him and all His Authority and Power and influence with you because He lives in YOU… you are His Temple of Dwelling.  The reason the devil hates you is because where you are, God is.

His Place of dwelling in the Old Testament was the Tabernacle.  It was Jesus in the New Testament and now it’s YOU in this Present Age.

 

Christ in you, the hope of glory…  Col 1:27

History is the tablet on which the Hand of God writes.

What is happening in the world today is not a “strange” thing.  It has been prophesied and foretold by the Word of God.  Nations have risen and nations have fallen. Kings have come and gone.  Wars have been won and lost.  Governments have collapsed and economies have failed.

But none have without fitting into the Grand Plan God has set forth for His People and His Earth.   This year will see more of God’s Hand involved in humanity and history than any other time since Jesus walked the earth.   Mark my words.

  • What we have heard about we will see.
  • What we have believed will be manifested.
  • What we have longed for will come to pass.

This Day is pregnant with God’s Eternal Ultimate Purpose and a Birth is at hand.   We are “that” generation that will see “all these things” fulfilled.

Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.   Matt 24:34

Rejoice

Most Believers give up too soon.

Christianity has not been weighed in the balances and found wanting, it has been TRIED and found to be too difficult and rejected.  Patience and Endurance and Persistence are necessary… Quitters never win and winners never quit.  Many are lacking right now because they got tired and discouraged and gave up.   Crybabies do not win great battles.  Wimps never take home the Gold.  Cowards quit because they lack resolve to press through.

All the Heroes of Faith in Hebrews chapter 11 did not have access to a complete Bible.  They did not have the freedoms we enjoy.  They did not live in the comfort and security we have.

Today we have God’s complete revelation in the Word of God.  We have nearly 2000 years of historical experience as the victorious Body of Christ.

The heroes in Hebrews accomplished their mighty works through a persistent faith.  A faith that did not quit.  A faith that did not ease up, let up, back up or give up…  They endured as seeing Him Who is Invisible… Heb 11:27

 

When you see the Invisible you can to the impossible
