BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 500. ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .)

“After this, I will pour out my Spirit on all kinds of people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will have dreams, and your young men will see visions.”

Both Jesus and the Holy Spirit have become our captives. Scripturally they are both modelled as free to have their way as God.

We have become constrained by decency, order, pride and fear of being judged as those who are drunk and disorderly as was the critique Peter defended on Pentecost morning when the fire and tongues gushed round those spilling out of the upper room before he revealed the quote above prophesied by Joel.

“These men are not drunk as you think; it’s only nine o’clock in the morning.”

God has a wildness when He out pours His Spirit. A crisis is met headlong when we encounter Him. He is an igniting spark, a gushing flood a pivotal force that breaks through our inhibition barriers and perimeters.

The corpse and grave is where the Spirit is absent it has been liberated. Where there is an absence of the Spirit there is an absence of the conviction of sin.

Therefore we must be ready to come into a move of the Spirit. Defy the enemies business in cutting of underground roots.

Deep holds on to deep and on to life. There is a sound of something moving, alive and something coming.

“I hear the roar of the water coming from deep within the earth. It shouts to the water below as it tumbles down the waterfall. God, your waves come one after another, crashing all around and over me.”

We think God ministers to us but Peter talks of us being a priesthood of ministers. We minister to Him.

“But you are his chosen people, the King’s priests. You are a holy nation, people who belong to God. He chose you to tell about the wonderful things he has done. He brought you out of the darkness of sin into his wonderful light.”

The weight of who God is, is not for our self help and feel good but to tell His story of goodness. Jesus is called the kindness, love and goodness of God.

“But then the kindness and love of God our Savior was made known. He saved us because of his mercy, not because of any good things we did. He saved us through the washing that made us new people. He saved us by making us new through the Holy Spirit.”

We need to love Him not just His presence.

We as priests and mini Christs are His doorways and windows between His realm in heaven and the earth realm in the world connect the two dimensions. We are bi-located.

As Jesus explained to Nicodemus we are born of the flesh into the world but born again of the Spirit into heavens realm. We who have Christ and God’s Spirit abiding in us should live in the kingdom realm it precedes all other identities.

Scripture tells us to “walk in the Spirit.”

“If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.”

It is on God’s terms not ours. We should not attempt sanitising Him. The Spirit and the Word are one and the same they cannot be separated.

We use scripture to defend our current views which can sometimes be dominated by culture or institutionalised. God is deconstructing what we have in us that does not serve Him but instead us.

He heals to restore His distinct church and bride. We will walk in the Spirit more than in time. For over two thousand years we have historically walked in the end days.

We have entered more into the era of urgency of living in the last days. We have the mechanisms we require and are called to manifest not living in deficit but in more.

We are on the road to our destination we have not reached our destination. We come to give.

We realise we have so little so it requires our all. We realise that isolated is not enough it requires us all. Corporately we are His dwelling place.

The illustration shows us as Spirit filled and lead people. Walking with Christ emanating light and pushing back the darkness.
