Are you ready for change?
Be encouraged. The Kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent take it by force!
Matthew 11; 12 And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force (as a precious prize – a share in the heavenly kingdom is sought with most ardent zeal and intense exertion.)
RADICAL meaning. – far reaching, thorough, in surgery seeking to remove all diseased tissue.
R Are you READY? – To speak a word in due season? This is the time to be ready, prepared, trained and equipped. Are you ready? What do you need to do to make yourself ready? What does The Lord need to do in you to make you ready? What is limiting you? What is holding you back from what you want to achieve?
A ALIVE? Are you alive in Him? Are your dreams alive, or have they died? Do you know what you are aiming for this year? Are you being active in your pursuit of God? He is ever moving forward, yesterday’s manna is stale, we need to have today’s. When will you arrive at your destination? – Do you have a plan of action? The Lord wants to give us a plan of action for our lives. Jer 29:11 tells us that He has thoughts and plans for us. Let’s take a minute to focus on this
D DECIDE today that you will choose His plan over yours. Deal with the obstacles in your way. He said if we have faith as a mustard seed then we will speak to the mountain and it will be removed in the Name Of Jesus. This is exciting! Don’t procrastinate! Dare to believe!
I INSPIRE yourself with The Holy Ghost. Let Him come upon you now and give you inspiration to reach for the stars, reach for your destiny, no matter how old you are, you haven’t arrived yet, there is still some way to go, places to go, people to see, Good news to tell.
Let us have INTEGRITY in what we do. Let it be as incense to The Lord.
C COME to The Lord and worship Him. Come with boldness before the throne of grace; cast your cares upon Him for He cares for you. Are you a caring person? Has your heart become hardened? Are you willing to clap and cheer for others who are winning the race? Or are you going to be jealous? This is the day of choice. This is the day of choosing whom you will serve. There are consequences to every action. We will reap what we sow!
A ADORATION is the first thing we need, adoration for The Lord, then our families, God gave us our families to love and take care of, until they are old enough to take care of themselves. Advice – if you need advice, hang out with positive people, not negative people We’re building the Kingdom of God. Let’s do it together.
Last of all we need
L LOVE, because 1 Cor 12 Paul says I will show you a more excellent way – The Love chapter. 1 Cor 13. Also are you willing to lose your life to find the life of The Kingdom of God and The ways of the Kingdom of God?
The Lord is shaking the church; we are in a season of tarrying and waiting upon Him. We are in a season as John the Baptist was in a season. His role was to prepare the way of The Lord, so he was a forerunner, a breaker from the law, and he pointed the way to the coming Lord, the Son of God, the Son of Man, Jesus Christ, Saviour of the world. It was a way never seen before, so he had led a life of separation, of fasting, of being in the desert, pre-ordained before birth, to have the awesome privilege of preparing the way of The Lord.
Will we see the second coming of The Lord? I don’t know, all I know is that we must, as a people, point to Jesus, and His Kingdom, and declare that He is coming soon, we need to be a people prepared and ready for change,
“The winds of change are blowing, through many nations, peoples and tribes. There is a change coming,” says God, “a change that will separate the wheat from the chaff, and I am coming as an all consuming fire to burn the ungodly things off your life, but you must be willing, there is a release of Kingdom Power and authority coming to the earth, but you must be prepared for it, because when it comes it will come with a sudden breath from my nostrils, and it will be a sharp breath that will cause many to be taken by surprise, I would not have you be asleep, so I call you to Awake! Awake! Arise! Arise! and see the Kingdom of God, don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t try to bury the dead, don’t try to bring them with you, or drag them behind you, because there is a season of running ahead, a season of speeding up My plan and My purpose for your life, and I would not have you lag behind, I would not have you look to the left or the right, there is no time for that, I would have you look to Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith, if He is the author then has it not already been written; the thoughts and plans I have for you?
I am looking at them now, and I see your frustrations, I see your pains, and I see your concerns, but I would have you lay them at the foot of the cross to be covered by the precious blood of Jesus, I would have you lay them down, now, and don’t pick them up, because they are too heavy for you to carry, for each and every one has a place, a position, a work for Me and My Kingdom, do not tarry, do not procrastinate, do not be afraid anymore, for have I not said if you open your mouth I will fill it?
Be careful what you say, and what you ask for, for in the day of My Power, life and death will surely be in the power of the tongue. I am coming to prune and to shape and to mould you, so that you can stand in the day of My Power,” says The Lord, “but don’t be afraid, for I have seen the end result and I can assure you victory, so turn your eyes upon Jesus, and lean not on your own understanding, for the things of My Spirit can only be discerned through spiritual eyes, so open up your eyes of faith and look to Me and My Kingdom, let us run the race together for the Glory of God, lean on My Holy Spirit who is there with you, who dwells within you, who will give you the unction to function, above all else, put on Love, for I am raising the banner and the standard of My Kingdom to a new level of Love.
You will see the miracles and you will see the release of My Power in the days that lie ahead, remember that the Glory belongs to me, remember, you are called to walk in humility, and remember to stay under the shelter of My wings where there is safety and rest. Take comfort from My presence, and rest upon Me. My burden is easy and My Yoke is light, I will light up the steps of your pathway, so have Peace, trust Me, and rest in My presence, I long to see your face, I long to hear your voice, I long to be with you. Are you ready for My fire?’
