God is Bigger

God is bigger, greater, more awesome and more powerful than we can even think or imagine.

What He can do far exceeds our ability to understand and comprehend.  He is greater than the greatest, stronger than the strongest and more powerful than anything or anybody.

Do you have a need?  Any need.  Big need.  Small need.  Few needs.  Great needs.  Many needs.  If your answer is “yes” then name your need.  Give it a name.   What is it?  Call it out.  Tell yourself what it is.  Tell the devil what it is.  Tell God what it is (even though He already knows.)  Is it a health need?  Is it a financial need?  Is it a marriage or family need?  Is it a spiritual need?  Is it an emotional need?  If you have a need, then God has the supply… and God is Able to get His supply to your need.  Phil 4:19

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, (Jesus) and given him a name which is above every name:  Phil 2:9  

Therefore, the Name of Jesus is above the name of your need.  And it is subject to that Name.  It must obey any command given to it.

That at the name of Jesus every knee (thing) should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;  Phil 2:10

 

Place your need under the authority of your command

We are all faced with “Lazarus” attacks” (John 11).

What we do, how we act in the midst of such death situations will demonstrate just how deep we are in God.

  • We can say what others are saying.
  • We can assume the worst.
  • We can agree with what the facts are.
  • We can accept the “inevitable”

Or we can Prophesy Life to the situation.   Like Jesus did.

God has called you into His Kingdom and given you the power to create with your mouth the things that are in the will of God.  Boldly prophesy the Word!

Our fiery trial… our grave-yard tribulation… our Red Sea and our Furnace heated 7 times its capacity… our den of Lions and our Goliath…  all these are opportunities for God to get Glory and for us to experience a miracle.

Jesus knew that impossibilities are opportunities… opportunities for God to Show Himself Strong in behalf of those who would DARE to BELIEVE.

 

Only Believe

And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?  Mark 4:40

Are you afraid?

What is it that you have to fear?  If God be for us who can be against us?  Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.

  • We have the Word.
  • We have the Holy Ghost.
  • We have the Unfailing Promises of our Great God.
  • We have the constant and continual Presence of the Living Christ.

Why do we fret?  Why do we worry?  Why do we fear?

God hath not given us the spirit of fear but of love and power and a sound mind.  2Tim 1:7

Jesus will always remind us to “Fear Not.”  He knows that fear will cancel our faith.  Where there is no faith, the attacks of the enemy are successful.  The only place the devil can work is the very place where fear is present.

Fear is to the devil what Faith is to God.  The gentle rebuke of Jesus came as a result of the disciples’ fear.  Fear always negates faith.

You will never be successful in your Faith Walk if fear is present.

 

Where fear is, faith isn’t

Pentecost.

The Day of Pentecost marked a pivotal point in the history of the Christian Church.  (Acts 2)

It was the Birth and the Beginning of the New Testament Church.  The Book of Acts records this event as well as the subsequent development and growth of what we know as the “Church.”

Today, we need to go beyond Pentecost.  Pentecost was the beginning, but that was nearly 2000 years ago.  If we are to fulfill the Great Commission and prepare the earth for the Coming of Jesus, we must progress beyond Pentecost.

As we enter into a fresh new season of change, I believe God is raising up an Army…. an Army of Believers who will Believe God and who will believe the Word.  A People who are not moved by circumstance or situation but who are committed to follow Jesus to the death if necessary.  A generation of turned-on and tuned-in Believers who are not content to stay stuck, but who are determined to move on Beyond Pentecost.

It is this Body of Believers, I believe,  that will comprise the Last Days Church… The End-Time Church… the Vibrant, Powerful, Miracle-working Body of Christ… the literal, visible, tangible, living, breathing extension of God on earth today.

 

Moving time is here

If any man be in Christ he is a new creature (creation); old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new…  II Cor 5:17

Adam lived in the realm of the Spirit in the Garden of Eden.  He was created in Perfection and he lived in Perfection until the entrance of sin.

  • Adam had perfect fellowship with God. He was totally righteous and free from any and all condemnation.   He did not sin before he met the enemy.
  • Adam lived in Perfect and Perpetual health. He was never sick and he was never weak.  He lived in state of continual well-being.
  • Adam was prosperous. He had no needs that were not met and he experienced no lack and no want.  He had food, shelter, protection, fellowship and companionship.  He was totally without lack or need.
  • Adam never suffered. He never had an accident or lived under any circumstance.  He was free from fear and anxiety.  He lived by faith.
  • Adam was Perfect. He was perfect in Mind, Body and Spirit.  He was strong and mentally alert.  He was perfect in every way.
  • Adam orchestrated Nature and enjoyed its cooperation. The earth worked with Adam in providing an abundant supply for his every need.  The animal and plant kingdom were blessed because of Adam.
  • Adam operated in and exercised Authority and Dominion over the World God had created for him. God was “number One” and Adam was “number two”.

When Adam died spiritually, that spiritual death was passed down to all his posterity… the whole human race.   

Wherefore as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men… Rom 5:12.

Adam’s sin resulted in the whole human race dying spiritually.  Therefore every person is born with a dead spirit.  That is why Jesus told Nicodemus:  “Ye must be Born Again…”

Our dead spirit is “Quickened” or made alive at the time we are Born Again.  This means “re-created” or “restored” (Eph 2:1).

What God did in Christ is greater than what satan did in Adam.

What God has done in us is greater than what satan can do to us.   (1 John 4:4)

Commitment

God is extending a calling to His People in this hour… it is His call to commitment.

Commitment is the “Works” part of Faith.  Faith without Works is dead… or faith without commitment will not work.  In the book of Acts, the early Believers were committed to the point of a willingness to die for what they believed (and many did).  That is commitment.

Commitment means:

  • Responsibility
  • Obedience
  • Dedication
  • Involvement
  • Sacrifice
  • Singleness of heart

Many today want to know “what can the Church do for me and my family?” Commitment says “What can my family and I do for the church?”  Commitment seeks to minister.  Selfishness seeks to be ministered to.    It is not “What can I get out of it?” but rather, “What can I contribute to it?”

The Military demands commitment.  I clearly remember the day I stood before an officer in the Navy and pledged my commitment (to the death, if necessary) to the protection and defense of our great nation.  Every soldier is expected and commanded to lay down his life for his country if necessary.  He is committed to protect it at all costs.

Ministry demands commitment.

Realizing your dream demands commitment

Marriage demands commitment.  Each partner is commanded and constrained by commitment to the other.

Business… Job… Education… Aspiration…  success in life…. all of these demand commitment.

God is calling YOU to a higher measure and level of commitment to His Kingdom… To His cause… To His Church… To the Lost World…

The Power of Pentecost

Pentecostal Power which is so evident in the New Testament is seldom found in churches today.

Signs, wonders and miracles are not the only evidence of Holy Ghost Power.  Changed lives are the evidence of Holy Ghost Power.

Sin, repented of and removed is evidence of Holy Ghost Power.  Love prevailing and forgiveness toward those who have wronged us is evidence of Holy Ghost Power.

Clean living and holy thinking and right doing are all evidence of Holy Ghost Power.

When we care more for prayer and fellowship with the Father than we do for our own entertainment, that is evidence of Holy Ghost Power.

When worship and praise and Word ministry are priorities, that’s evidence of Holy Ghost Power.

When we desire God more than anything else… when we seek Him and cry out to Him and long for Him we are experiencing Holy Ghost Power.

When everything that offends is cut away and put down… when all our “idols” are smashed and reduced to dust, we have been touched by Holy Ghost Power.

You cannot experience the Power without something happening.  God’s Power inevitably produces results.

It is not more education that we need or bigger and more comfortable buildings.  It is not more efficient organization and more talented administration that we need.  It is not more professional choirs and musicians and more highly skilled worship leaders that we need.

We need the Power of Pentecost

Count the cost;  pay the price

Elisha paid the price.  He met the condition.  He did what he had to do in order to receive his Anointing.  To get His Double Portion.

And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.   2Ki 2:9

I believe you want it, too.  Because this is the one most important thing in your life.  Whatever it takes, commit to do.  Forgetting those things that are behind, and reaching forth to those things that are before… do whatever is necessary.

In order to experience continual anointing…Repent of sin.  Get rid of wrong attitudes.  Get rid of the “content with what I’ve got” mode of living.  Get rid of criticism.  Get rid of jealousy and envy.    Get rid of greed.  Get rid of bitterness and sarcasm.  Get rid of lust and loose morals.  Get rid of connections that pull you down.  Get rid of unbelief.

There are more than likely only one or two main obstacles that stand between you and your Anointing.  So, you know what you must do.  Do it.

Put it behind you.  Put it under your feet.  Put it out of the way.

 

Nothing is worth missing the Anointing

The part of the Word that you believe and act on is the part of the Word that will work for you.

  • When you believe, receive and act on the saving part, you get saved.
  • When you believe, receive and act on the healing part, you receive healing.
  • When you believe, receive and act on the delivering part, you get delivered.
  • When you believe, receive and act on the prosperity part, you get prosperity.

Transforming, delivering and miracle-working Power is imputed into every believer at the time of his conversion.  You do not “grow into the Power” you receive it as a free gift immediately at the time of your salvation.  The idea of being “weak” and “immature” is not an excuse.  Jesus said that the “least” in the Kingdom is “greater than John the Baptist…” (Mt 11:11)

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us…  Eph 3:20

Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.  Mark 9:23

 

If you can believe, you can receive
