“Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.”
The Holy Spirit has a tangible presence of authority that will not be violated.
When we walk with peace and love resting upon us we can change the atmosphere.
Our Spiritual nature can detect the Presence on and within another.
We are alert to a shift in a sense of fear or a sense of love.
There is a walk of damage and destruction that surrounds the enemy influenced.
There is a walk of gathering, shielding and love that silences the enemy.
“ the kingdom of God has come upon you.”
The increase in authority comes from carrying Jesus’ power, His word and His love.
Something we grow in strength in using to bring an opposition especially to the enemy kingdom of darkness which is threatened by it.
Jesus has already baptised us with water. Cleansed and marked us.
He has already come as the Living Water.
Now is the coming in fire bringing life on a new level as it purifies and burns out and delivers us from the enemy.
Burns and sacrifices us to surrender and become those of the kingdom.
It exposes those agitated and liberated to be lifted up closer and more intimately with God.
To bring the Kingdom on earth.
What we then generate will create a radical reaction either of amazing attraction and desire to become as like or to cause offence.
This dualistic response will stir up those who recognise Jesus and His authority because they have already formulated a respect for authority and those who need to yield and to recognise authority and the Lordship of Jesus.
The opportunity opened up for making the right choice is vastly widened.
We will no longer burn with just a pilot light flame we will be consumed with fire. Authentic fire not fake.
God is not just huge He is infinite as is His radicle power to transform in this hour.
The illustration shows the vision of Jesus walking as a man of fire not burned up by it but carrying it to the earth to baptise with Spirit and fire. To destroy and burn out the enemy and bring new life. Bring light that reveals and rids the darkness.
Four Scriptures that come to mind:
“Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.”Matthew 12:30 ESV
“And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.”Matthew 12:32 ESV
“how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.”Acts 10:38 ESV
“But if it is by the Spirit of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.”Matthew 12:28 ESV
