AWARE!

AWARE!
 
Isaiah 52:1

Hebrews 11:1 makes us aware!

The time has come for the Grace of God to be valued at the highest level of our willing obedience. We now, according to Eccl 3, must measure the balance of wisdom through the Word of God. There is a time and season for everything.

Hebrews 11:1 makes us aware that faith is now and Habakkuk 2:4 tells us that “the just shall live by faith.”

We are also aware, by way of scripture, that our faith comes by hearing the Word of God. This year, there is no doubt that we, as the army of God’s believers, must no longer delay the crucial need to know and activate the Word of Faith that has been given to us through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Three things we must now be aware and informed of:

  1. Jesus is Lord, Acts 4:12
  2. Believers follow Him, John 1:12
  3. He is returning soon, 1 Thessalonians 4:16

For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

Awareness is no more than being active, doing the will of God, and looking forward to His coming.
 
Are we clear?

Justice

In scripture, justice is associated with vengeance, retribution, judgment, and punishment, as well as uprightness, blamelessness and righteousness.

The clear meaning of “justice” is “what is right” or “what is normal” — the way things are supposed to be.

The truth about our Salvation in Christ is simple, but profound. Our sins are evidence of our human fallen nature. The things we do because of our disobedience to God and His word are obvious. Just look around and see the wickedness of man’s heart, and the absence of divine morals. The lies, killings, division, and godlessness…..the hurts go on and on. This was identified long ago in the book of Genesis when the Lord spoke about his plan to redeem fallen mankind (Gen 3:22).

The first Adam with his wife Eve disobeyed and here we are—now when we read Ezekiel 18 we see that God, even in the Old Testament Days gave man a way to correct his mistake by obeying His Word. There were to turn toward Him for cleansing and purification through the blood sacrifice of animals. However, now our justification can only come through the sacrificial life of Christ, the Messiah, the Lamb of God.

Today we sit as followers of Christ representing the whole plan of God the Father to redeem sinful mankind. This was totally accomplished through His Son Jesus—who is the Emmanuel “God With Us.”

Ezekiel 18 put the responsibility on us to receive the Lord’s Word and cleanse ourselves by Jesus’ truth. To say, as we read in Heb 3:7-8, “if you hear his voice…harden not your heart,” would mean if you hear His Voice calling us to worship Him, then do not harden your hearts. This is YOUR Day to be saved and we can Rejoice that “Due Process & Justice” was served by Jesus long ago for your peace with God.

We are justified in Christ Jesus, “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

The Altar

“And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint”

The powerful significance of the altar is founded upon the teachings from the Tabernacle in the Wilderness. The Lord spoke to His Servant Moses to put in place the Tabernacle and all that it was to represent.

The powerful truth of the altar has to do with the dwelling place (Psalm 91) which today is in us. The Bible says that our bodies are the temple of the indwelling of the Holy Ghost. Therefore, we are examples of the preference of God in us to represent His Kingdom (1John 1:12).

The purpose of this lesson pertains to the sacred place of the Most High God. In the tabernacle that Moses was instructed to prepare, the Holy of Holies was the most inner place of all. When we look at our lives as vessels available we see the similarities of the inner court to the Holy of Holies; as God’s dwelling place of communion at the altar.

The altar truly symbolizes the fervent relationship (1John 1) we have with God in this body (Roman 12:1-2).

Jesus said, “Men ought to always pray…” (Luke 18:1).

Now we see, so let your life be ONE lived by FAITH and be the altar of God on this earth for His GLORY!

Spiritual Vision

“The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.” Ephesians 1:18 (KJV)

In light of everything we do, God has created within us the ability to see in the spirit. This gift comes through the power of the Holy Ghost. The Bible declares in the books of Joel and Acts, that in the last days God will pour out of His Spirit upon all flesh. He declares that your old men shall dream dreams and your young men shall see visions. The Lord also said that He would pour out of his Spirit upon the young women, the handmaids of the Lord to be able to prophesy.

Spiritual Vision is insightful-ness into the realm of the Spirit. There’s a powerful story in the book of 2 Kings 6, which talks about when the Assyrian army had the prophet Elisha surrounded. They were coming to get him because the Syrian king disliked what he had to say about the seasons and times in which the people were living in his day. Today, the same is true, and the Word of the Lord is coming with such force and power until the citizens of the Earth are frustrated because it upsets the lifestyles that they are living. So the proclamation of the Word of God is coming with great force, nevertheless in the book of Kings the prophet of God sees, by the Spirit of God, that he is surrounded and the young lad that is with him is disturbed because he wakes and he sees the armies of the enemy around them. The man of God quickly begins to understand what is taking place. He understands that this young man cannot see what he sees in the Spirit, so he prays for him that God would open his eyes to see what God is doing. To his great amazement he sees the armies of the Lord more than they that are against him.

Today, God is calling us to follow the things of the Holy Spirit. The Bible says in the last days the Lord will pour out of His Spirit upon all flesh, so if you want to be filled in these days with Spiritual Vision, be filled with the power of the Holy Ghost and be filled with clarity to comprehend and understand what it is that God is doing on earth through His kingdom.

Proverbs 3:5 says to trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding, but in all thy ways acknowledge Him……and He Shall direct thy paths! Be prepared to see what God is doing in these last days. God will certainly show us Great and Mighty things as Jeremiah reminded us.

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV)

The Time is Now……Available!

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19 (KJV)

In the business of our times, and in this life, it is vital that we examine how we spend this valuable resource of time. If we are not watchful in this matter, we could easily PASS through life without valuing the “Call of God”. We are being summoned to present ourselves before the King of Glory, the Lord, the Mighty God, the Creator of the Ends of the Earth. According to the calendar of the Jewish nation, Rosh Hashanah the New Year, took place in October, beginning a supernatural countdown to our victory – our meaning those of us who are in Christ Jesus. These are those who are

SAVED, REDEEMED, and SET FREE from sin by the Power of God through faith in His Word – The Holy Bible.

This was all done to provide healings of ALL kind to the people of the nations, and now because of this, we are mandated to come unto Him and receive REST. Matthew 11:28 (KJV). REST is defined as an insistence or period of relaxing or ceasing to engage in strenuous or stressing activity from life’s struggles, meaning a call to Serve the Lord by learning of Him and His ways.

John 14:6 (KJV) says – Jesus answered, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” This expresses very well what is to be our response to this divine instruction; so that we may now through the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ be the Sons and Daughters of God, that have received His Power, to be available to be His witnesses in this earth.

AVAILABLE: able to be used or obtained; at someone’s disposal.

Jesus himself was available to stand in the place of sin for you, and so that we may be set free to live by faith in God’s Word, to be His servant, to bring healing to the souls of men in the nations.

Isaiah 6:8 (KJV) says “Here am I, send me…” and this verse shows that He made himself available and we know throughout scripture that so many others did as well. What about you? It is a “New” Year and changes must be made immediately to perpetuate the Will of God in your Life. Matthew 6:33 (KJV) says “But seek ye first his Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

And now we must hear the call of Jesus to us who are the believers of His Kingdom to G.O. God ordained to all the world and preach the Gospel – the teaching or revelation of Jesus Christ!

Established

“For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. 90 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.” Psalm 119:89-90 (KJV)

It is High Time that we the People of God return to the Will of God in the Earth. The Power of His Holiness is established in Heaven to penetrate all darkness and bring order to those who call upon His Name—JESUS!
This is indeed a Season of His Unconditional Love being extended to us here on Earth from His Heavenly Throne—proclaiming justice for the sinners who repent from their sin and embrace the calling of the Voice to those who will HEAR and OBEY.

We then who have determined to follow Him—know that we are chosen for such a time as this according to Isaiah 61:1 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.” Now is the time that the Holy Ghost has summoned the Church of the Lord to put on the strength of the Spirit of God and Go be a witness to the Nations being with: ourselves, our families, friends, relatives and ALL people that we come into contact. This is the Established Order of the Divine Presence of God in this Season!

The Lord spoke to me of the supernatural time we have entered and how we shall experience the “FRESH FIRE” of the Holy Spirit that fell on and at the Day of Pentecost and All the Promises that were Divinely given. We are Now responsible to God as the followers of Christ and joint heirs together with Him to proclaim the gospel message of Heaven to a sin sick and dying world that Jesus Saves with signs, wonders, and miracles following the preaching and teaching of the Word of God.

The examples in the Book of Acts are a timely and constant reminder that God spoke to us by Jesus Christ; through His blood that we are redeemed and saved, by His death, burial and resurrection we are made righteous in Him.
Let us NOW proceed to the place of our inheritance in Him with assurance and total confidence that we are more than conquers through Christ Jesus who loves us.
