Word For Today: January 26,2021 BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT.. PLUS P.S UPDATE AT THE END!
Beloved of the Lord,
Be strong in the Lord and the power of His might. No matter what is going on around you, God is lifting up His end time warriors into a new place of victory, authority and power that is unprecedented.
2021 is year of God's unprecedented glory. It is filled with unprecedented power, authority and dominion. Those who are being prepared by the Lord are truly going to be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.
I love that admonition because it speaks of where our true life is hidden and our true identity. We are being completely be emptied and being made weak, so we can become strong, IN THE LORD!
It is quite a paradox isn't it. We have to become so weak, so empty, and be able to live our life in absolute and complete dependence upon the Lord alone.
All our human strength, wisdom, understanding, power has be be brought under the complete submission of the Lord Jesus Christ as our Lord. We can never use it in His kingdom advancement.
Often time we confuse being STRONG IN THE LORD as being gifted and anointed by the Holy Spirit and His gifts.
Beloved, too many times we try to live this Christian life and do the ministry in the power of human charisma mixed with the spirit of God.
That mixture of flesh and spirit has convinced us we are "strong in the Lord's, gifts, blessing, provision, and he has given us and that justifies our work and ministry.
Yet, that is the very heart issue Jesus deals with in the church of Laodecia. He says, "I wish you were hot or cold, but you lukewarm and I am going to spew you out of my mouth. For you say you are rich (in increased good) but I say, you are poor, blind and naked.
This rebuke and correction come to the heart of what "spirit of religion" say being strong in the Lord is verse what God says.
In human strength mixed with the Holy Spirit we can say a lot, we can accomplish a lot, and have a lot of what many we would call success only to find out "in that day of fire" it was food, hay and stubble filled with mixture.
Many will say to me in that day, "Lord, have we not prophesied in your name, cast out devils in your name?" Jesus replied, "depart from me you worker of iniquity I never knew you."
Notice they called him Lord. They believed they were justified before him "by what they did" even in his name and power. That is scary to me, because much of what we built "in our strength" is being confused with God's strength.
In the closing of the church age and the beginning of the kingdom age, God is testing and appraising our life, our work, our family by fire now.
Why now? So we can repent to buy the gold tried by the fire, to get eye salve for our eyes and to cover our nakedness. Our true state before the Lord was not rich, but being poor. The sad part is that we "say we are rich and in need of nothing." That speaks of what the "flesh mixed with some Spirit gifting" has produced at the end of the age.
As I woke up this morning, I heard in my spirit. Be strong... IN THE LORD.... AND IN THE POWER.... OF HIS MIGHT. Where is my might in this picture? NOT THERE.
Because of the spiritual condition of the church, it's leaders at the end of the age. Jesus has to come in His Parousia and appear to John the Beloved on the aisle of Pathmos.
John is caught up in the spirit on the Lord's day or 7th day. A day is like a thousand years Peter wrote. It was 4000 years from Adam to Christ, 2000 more years from the time of Jesus ascending in to heaven to now. 6000 years completed.
In the year 2000 we entered into the 3rd day of the church age and the 7th day of mankind. In that day, Jesus appears to John like He never saw him before or heard his voice before. John sees Jesus as the King of Glory and hears His voice as a war trumpet. I have written much about this.
The important part of what this post is about is that in chapters 2 and 3 Jesus reveals the spiritual condition of the church through the entire ages and the sin in the camp.
The important truth to see is that Jesus tells John over and over to tell the church. I KNOW YOUR WORK... OVER AND OVER. He tells them, I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND YOUR HEART MOTIVES AND THEY DON'T PLEASE ME.
Throughout the 7 churches up to the Laodecian church there are three things he asks, REPENT, CHANGE AND OVERCOME.
These three keys are critical for us to realize. Why would he ask this because whatever our life seems to be, whatever we have built will not PASS THE TEST OF FIRE INTO ETERNITY. What we have built has not been in the "strength of the Lord" but the strength of our human hands and intellect and it won't pass the test of fire.
It will be burnt up and those whose work is burnt up enter in only by escaping the fire and will not be over-comers, kings or priest to rule and reign with him.
2020 was the year God brought the entire church worldwide to stop for this very reason. He stopped us from meeting together, doing ministry work and all the activities to see who could hear his trumpet voice and who would see Him as the King of Glory.
IN 2020 the Lord slammed the door shut on the church age. We are now longer in it, we are now in the 3rd day Kingdom age where the Kingdoms of this world are now going to become the Kingdoms of our God in Christ.
The Lord told me 2020 would be the year of transitional glory. That he was bringing us from one place of reality of his kingdom we had in 2019 to the new place of His Kingdom position in 2020.
He told me we would never be the same. We would not live the same, speak the same or walk the same on the earth. Did that word come to pass or not?
Sadly some Leaders in the church and many saints did not hear the voice of the war trumpet to turn around to see Jesus as the King of Glory that He is revealing himself now to those who can.
Those who did not turn to see or hear that voice will continue to build in the strength of their efforts mixed with God's spirit and will to try to give Jesus a church in that day.
Those who did turn to see him as the King of Glory and heard the voice of the war trumpet have entered in to the 7th day rest of God. They are not building anything for the Lord. They are emptied.
They are surrendered to the finishing 3rd day work of Jesus to be not yielded vessels but to become completed vessels as full grown sons and daughters of God.
They are being finished. They are being totally emptied so they can now contain the finishing glory of the Lord. They are being totally emptied so Isaiah 60 can manifest in their life. They will arise and shine and the glory of the Lord will be seen in them and risen upon them.
They are not simply yielded vessels like in the church age that can be mixed with human work and wisdom. They are completed vessels where now whatever they do, say or speak, is not in human wisdom, ability or power, but in the STRENGTH OF THE LORD.
THEY ARE SO DEPENDENT UPON THE LORD, THEY HAVE BECOME ONE WITH HIM AS JESUS WAS ONE WITH THE FATHER. THEY HAVE ENTERED INTO THE GLORY REALM. JESUS IS THE FATHER, THE FATHER IN JESUS AS ONE, AND NOW THEY ARE JOINED WITH THE FATHER AND THE SON AS ONE PERFECTLY UNITED SO THE WORLD WILL KNOW THAT THE FATHER LOVES THEM AS HE LOVES JESUS.
Because they have surrendered to the process of change, repentance and overcoming in Revelation chapters 2 and 3 they are now are ready to come up even higher into the glory realm of the third heaven with the Lord.
They are summed to come up through the door standing open in heaven for the Lord to be so one with them that He will show them EVERYTHING THAT IS GOING TO COME HEREAFTER.
THEY ARE SO ONE WITH THEM THAT AS THEY GO THROUGH THAT DOOR, IMMEDIATELY THEY WILL SEE THE THRONE AND THE ONE SITTING ON IT.
This is what it truly means to be seated with Jesus in heavenly places. This spiritual placement requires total surrender, total emptiness, total dependence upon the Lord alone. It requires the giving of your body as a living sacrifice, body, soul and spirit, the totality of your being to come under the complete headship of the King of Glory, the Lord of Host.
When that surrender is complete and being made complete, the old life of the church age passes away, and behold all things become new.
It is that newness that this word from God becomes a kingdom reality in your life. Ephesians 6:10 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
NOTICE THE WORD FINALLY... THAT WORD IMPLIES SOMETHING BEING FINISHED.. AS A LAST WORK OR A LAST ACT.
FINALLY, MY BRETHREN... BE STRONG.. IN THE LORD. That is what Revelation chapters 1-5 is to bring about. Our complete emptying, our complete weakness, the complete emptying of our human strength and effort to become and over-comer by being STRONG.. IN THE LORD... ONE WITH THE LORD... AND IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT.. .NOT OUR MIGHT.
IT IS NOT BY MIGHT, NOR BY POWER, BUT BY MY SPIRIT SAYS THE LORD. THIS IS THE UNCEASING SUPPLY OF EXTRA OIL THE LORD GIVES TO THE WISE VIRGINS, THE OVER-COMERS, THE FULL GROWN SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE LORD.
Beloved, it is this remnant people who God is preparing, and positioning for the greatest propelling of His glory to be seen on the earth in human history.
WE ARE TO BE STRONG... IN THE LORD.. NOT OUR WORK, NOT OUR MINISTRY, NOT ANY OUNCE OF HUMAN WISDOM, EFFORT OR SWEAT.
WE ARE TO BE STRONG.. IN THE LORD.. .AND IN THE POWER.... OF HIS MIGHT.... NOT OURS. THIS IS THE ONLY POSITION WE CAN TAKE IN THE KINGDOM AGE TO PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD FOR THIS MOMENT IN HISTORY.
THE ARMOR OF THE KINGDOM AGE IS NOT MIXED WITH FLESH AND SPIRIT OR IT WON'T WORK. WE WON'T SURVIVE WHAT IS COMING ON THE EARTH WITH ARMOR THAT IS MIXED WITH FLESH AND SPIRIT.
THAT IS WHY HE IS GIVING US NEW ARMOR AND NEW WEAPONS IN THE KINGDOM AGE. ARMOR AND WEAPONS OF UNPRECEDENTED GLORY, POWER, AUTHORITY AND DOMINION THAT CAN TRANSFORM THE KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD INTO THE KINGDOMS OF OUR GOD.
THIS ARMOR AND WEAPONS ARE FROM THE KINGDOM AGE ARE TOTALLY FILLED WITH THE GLORY OF THE LORD, AND NO FLESH CAN GLORY IN HIS SIGHT. FINISHED AND COMPLETED MATURE SONS AND DAUGHTERS ARE NOW TAKING THEIR PLACE IN HIM, IT IS THE THIRD DAY!
THEY ARE BEING CALLED TO COME UP THROUGH THE DOOR STANDING OPEN IN HEAVEN TO BE ONE WITH HIM.
THEY ARE BEING POSITIONED TO LIVE AND MOVE FROM HIS GLORY REALM AS ONE WITH THE LORD. THEY ARE BEING FORMED INTO A KINGDOM OF KINGS AND PRIEST TO GOD WHO ARE GOING TO RULE WITH HIM OVER THE EARTH.
JOEL DESCRIBES THESE PEOPLE AS A GREAT ARMY THAT HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE AND NEVER WILL BE SEEN AGAIN. THIS ARMY IS TO WHOM THE LORD UTTERS HIS VOICE AND GREAT IS THAT ARMY THAT CARRIES OUT HIS WORD. THAT IS WHY THE LORD IS SAYING TO US THIS MORNING. FINALLY, FINALLY.. MY BRETHREN... BE STRONG.. IN THE LORD.. IN THE LORD.. AND IN THE POWER OF.. HIS MIGHT, AND THEN PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD.
Beloved, for us to stand in all that is coming upon this nation, I believe this message is a word in season to those that are weary today. I believe this is empowering release Word from the Lord to open you heart to receive.
Pray and ask the Lord to show you now if you need to repent of the mixture of a life and work of flesh and Spirit. Ask him to show you what is in your heart and the sin found in Revelation 2 and 3 is in you?
If so, repent, change and let God completely empty you to raise you up on the third day to live before him (Hosea 61-3)
I RELEASE THIS APOSTOLIC AND PROPHETIC WORD FROM THE LORD OVER AND IN YOUR LIFE TODAY BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD.
FINALLY MY BROTHER, MY SISTER, BE STRONG... IN THE LORD.. AND IN THE POWER.... OF HIS MIGHT... IN JESUS NAME I PRAY.
P.S. Update for our nation.
Beloved, I encourage you with all that is still happening in our nation continue to stay ready and prepared in the natural as you have been doing and to continue to seek the Lord for his direction and instructions you need for you and your family.
Things are still very uncertain on how they are gong to unfold and we need God's wisdom so he can navigate our lives through the new GPS (Glory Positioning System) so we can know what to do, where He wants us, and to whom we are now going to be knitted with for the Lord's purposes.
God is rearranging the body parts. Stay flexible to move even to a new geographical area if He desires. Some of you in blue states may have to move to red states to be connected with the divine appointments have for you so you can grow in an open heaven atmosphere.
Many blue states atmosphere spiritually will be like brass because of the sin, where many red states that welcome and honor God will have an open heaven. The open heaven atmosphere will be critical for your life, the new assignments and people you are to be knitted with. Just be open to the Lord's leading.
Stay the course! Be sober and vigilant as you have been!
Much love and blessings always!
