Now is the time!
“Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.””
We have passed the era of waiting upon.
We have been through transition which has been a preparation time.
We are now ready to Go, ready or not!
We have to become mobilised to move forwards and up.
We have to be prepared to learn the rest as we go.
We have to be ready to counter the enemy strategy with action co-labouring with hearing God’s voice.
He is calling us to “stand up and get ready” move onwards into action in the bigger picture with Him.
Just as Daniel brought proof of God being there for His people in the lions den and in the fire so now it is time to trust His presence in the circumstances of our moving forward.
Those who are deep thinkers are called out to deep action.
The lie is broken off that we are small and separate, we are empowered by realising we are big in unity as a body.
The revelation that action can be effected en mass not only on individuals.
We are ready to graduate as a mature church with a remit that covers much greater territory than within our four walls on a Sunday.
We are ready to demolish the enemies territory in individuals, business, governments, Nations and globally.
We recognise as Paul did in Acts that God is wanting action on turning situations and cultures around totally in the supernatural way that only His action and us partnering can.
Now is the time to displace and dismantle enemy strategies.
Now is the time we are anointed to use our position and voice.
New mantles are ready and available for this new time.
The problem arises from the enemy, God speaks the opposite into being to displace it.
Where we see fatigue weariness, then we speak and breath new life.
Where we see the temptation to step back into familiar and safe, we call forward and up.
Where finances have been drained we speak and believe abundance.
We deliver from demons of debt, despair, need and more.
Where the enemy has attacked speak freedom.
Flip and turn over the enemy’s work and remit.
The body of Christ and God’s remit is the answer.
Spring forth with the authority from the Lord in what we pray, petition and declare.
Peter recognised his role when he recognised Jesus as the Christ.
God revealed it to him.
What has God been revealing to us?
What do we now recognise?
Now is the time to be mobilised in that new truth.
To cut ourselves away from the past and go forward into the new as Jehu did in the OT.
To go on in the world and make a difference as Jesus did, in our new knowledge, understanding and revelation.
To bring light, revelation and His joy and peace to those who have been robbed by the enemy.
The illustration shows the eye wide open seeing revelations with a supernatural clarity. The spectrum colours of the Holy Spirit in the iris significant of New sight, new time. The darkness pushed back due to the new revelation.
Five Scriptures that come to mind:
“Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.””John 7:24 ESV
“And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment:”John 16:8 ESV
“He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.”Matthew 16:15-17 ESV
“But now I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.”John 17:13-18 ESV
“And I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man also will acknowledge before the angels of God, but the one who denies me before men will be denied before the angels of God. And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but the one who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.”Luke 12:8-10 ESV
