“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.”
We will not settle for anything less than the fullness of the presence of God. Jesus paid the price for that fullness and for the fire of God to consume us.
Our hope is for such an explosion of His glory in our church that people enter and leave the building or our company saying “ God was in that place” and in that revelation to be hungry and thirsty for more.
We no longer have to tolerate less or dryness. Congregations filled with the manifestation of God will grow.
It will be the pivotal place and time when believers will desperately seek out their secret place with Him to cultivate personal time with Him.
A Sunday service weekly is by far not enough.
When people walk with God radical transformation takes place in them and those they mingle amongst. Living the life effortlessly that attracts, rubs off and spreads.
We are so much more than pew warmers. We have our whole identity in Him. We cry out to God for “revival” and His answer is :“Where are you?”
We are responsible for revival.
We need a desperation to fight for nothing less than to wear the mantle we have been given and be known and seen for who we are in Christ.
To accommodate the Holy Spirit’s invitation to ride the roller coaster with arms raised and joy. To be the witness to others to desire the same ticket and access.
What they see is so attractive and inviting there is clamour for it not resistance. What may start tentative and white knuckled will quickly become exhilarating and the only air to be breathed to satisfy.
People passionate not to just attend a nice service but to be brought alive, resuscitated.
Everyone has a desire to be enfolded into a family, to fit in there and belong.
To be connected and creating a new life of being the giver not the needy. The life of it always being for the other and not the “me”.
Jesus transforms us with His identity into people who love. Lost, lonely, needing and darkness have no place they no longer exist.
This is the role model of the kingdom which could transform all systems and nations across the globe.
Jesus Christ only can do this empowered and authorised by God. Christ has empowered us with His authority also, when we live out the truth He has spoken over us.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
In the name of Jesus we are protected from all harm and empowered to do great things.
“Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.”
The illustration shows roller coaster height of exhilarated praise with joy exuding light that pushes back the darkness.
Four Scriptures that come to mind:
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.”John 15:9 ESV
“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.””Matthew 28:18-20 ESV
“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.”Luke 10:19 ESV
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.”John 14:12-14 ESV
