We are able to access the eternal spiritual realm through the Holy Spirit who connects us to Jesus. He is the Living Word of God. Jesus Christ is the only God-given door that we enter into through prayer, meditation, praise and worship, dreams and vision. Jesus, the Anointed One, is the only God who has been raised from the dead. Jesus was raised from the slumber of death, becoming the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep or died. We know that death entered the world through the physical body of Adam when he sinned, so it took the spiritual body of the perfect man Jesus to make the resurrection of the dead a reality for us.
God is the God of the breakthrough but he uses our hands – if you do your part he will do. (2 Chronicles 20:17) contains a powerful promise that has encouraged many believers over the years, "But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the LORD's victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the LORD is with you!" There is no progress without resistance: There is a spiritual battle over your breakthrough. We can only win the battle in the spirit. Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to their circumstance. His name is Jesus.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18 Jesus gives you His shalom to set you up for success in life. You cannot be a success in your marriage, family and career when you are crippled and paralyzed with fear. Today, as you are reading this, I believe with all my heart that Jesus has already begun a work in your heart to liberate you from all your fears, whatever they may be.
The Lord said, "Truth is bombarding the scenes. Whosoever will pick up the â€˜mannaâ€™ will thrive and build their lives, while others remain stagnant...relying on what they currently know." It's time for the church to expand themselves! To roll out the carpet and receive the truths I'm proclaiming, through all the 7 Mountains of culture and beyond! Not just the Church Mountain. I am bringing a unity of TRUTH and it is coming on the scene where the general public will not be able to deny it."
The Lord spoke to me that He is raising up a "new breed" in the earth. He showed me several characteristics that would mark this new breed. Before I share them with you, let me share a prophetic encounter I had with God. The Lord spoke to me, "The top of My list for you is the bottom of your list. And the bottom of your list, is the top of My list. The top of my list for you is the refinement of your character. I want your roots to go so deep in Me, that success will never move you." As God prepared me, He wanted to make sure that my root system was so deep in Him, that when I got to where He was bringing me, I'd be able to stand and sustain what He entrusted to me.
When you are born again, you become a new creation. You are "born again" from the seed of the Holy Spirit inside your soul that begins to grow and manifest. As you feed on the Word of God and are nurtured around those who walk in the Spirit, you will begin to grow and thrive in the creation that God has ordained YOU to be! You will go through a number of transformation processes. What you start off as young is probably not what you will look like when you are older and more mature. You can easily see this in the natural world as well! There are phases from infant to adult. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 15:46, "However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual."
Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime; it is the Lord who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain to all people, and plants of the field to everyone … They will pass through the sea of trouble; the surging sea will be subdued and all the depths of the Nile will dry up … Zechariah 10:1, 11 NIV The Lord is going to bring spiritual refreshment like that of the spring rains. This is preparation for the coming year, in which God is releasing the long-awaited fulfillment of the promises you have been holding on to. For many, though, this time of preparation has been too painful and not refreshing. While the rains and storms of life are necessary to prepare and strengthen you, they can sometimes turn into a sea of trouble.
Revelation 22:17 "And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely." As believers we are married to Jesus. With that marriage He gives us the wedding ring that we need to wear -using the authority that we've been given through our oneness with Him. Our intimacy with God gives us power, awakening us to the authority that we've been given. By digging deeper in prayer, intercession and worship we discover or even rediscover a greater authority over the enemy.
I remember the first time I prayed for something that wasn't answered. I was four years old. I saw a green Power Ranger watch at the mall. In my mind, there was nothing I needed more. As I went to sleep that night I closed my eyes and prayed it would be under my pillow the next morning, in true tooth fairy fashion. I don't recall the exact case I made before God, but I felt strongly enough to remember this twenty-five years later. It's no surprise the watch was not under my pillow the next morning. It's a good thing I didn't express to my parents how badly I wanted it. A moment of generosity on their part might have reinforced some strange notions about prayer at that point in my development.
The Spirit of the Living God is speaking these words: "The Father's heart is set on recovery. So what more shall I say then about these truths and mysteries that are being revealed?" I say let there be light over them! Let the light of Christ illuminate the truths and mysteries We (Father, Son, and Spirit) desire to be made known; for there are many. Just as I spoke in the first word regarding this, so I will say it again – many of these truths and mysteries hold solutions and remedies that are needed for this time; they will help many people.
