“For it is God who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ who has shone in our hearts to give the light of knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 4:6
“The LORD is my light and my salvation.” Psalm 27:1
“Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105
“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.” Ephesians 5 :13-14
“If we walk in the light, and He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the Blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.” I John 1:7
Now is the time! Now is the time for us to awaken, arise , shine and go forth with the love, light, power and glory of God. “Arise! Shine! For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.” (Isaiah 60:1) God is releasing His love, His power and His glory today in unprecedented ways! Now is the time to experience the real presence of our living LORD! We must all arise and be alert and responsive to all God is doing in these latter days before Jesus’ imminent return.
There is a great need today in ministry for a born again Christian, who has received the precious priceless gift of eternal salvation, because of the sacrificial blood of Jesus Christ our LORD and Savior, to also be taught and teach others about Jesus’ gift of redemption, restoration and transformation.
God’s gift of amazing grace reaches down and can transform and heal our inner man. This is a process that begins when we accept Jesus as our LORD and Savior. “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away. All thing have become new.” II Corinthians 5:7 After salvation, we need to earnestly pray to be transformed by the renewing of our minds and receive a new heart. Within each of us are old mindsets, lies the enemy has told us, and so many Christians are not walking in newness of life! We do not learn this by yet a “new” technique, purpose, procedure or program that are being offered in many churches today. Instead, we need to teach about God’s amazing grace that reaches down through the supernatural power of His Holy Spirit, and we encounter and experience the powerful Holy Presence of God. It connects us to Jesus and we experience our One True God, with real power and joy, as He pours out His unconditional perfect love on us.
For several days I have been writing as the Holy Spirit has been downloading this message on transformation. And today I read the following fromDutch Sheets.
“I believe the Lord is saying (through this dream) that we are about to see the Kingdom of God come to earth in a more tangible way. The Church is about to see a physical manifestation of that which we have warred for in the spirit, and a fulfillment of things promised in times past. And we'll see results from our prayers much more quickly; rather than believing change will result in the future, we will see quick, tangible evidence of transformation. More than just believing for souls to be saved, we will experience multitudes coming to Christ. Spiritual gifts will not only be asked for, but we will see signs, wonders and miracles as a manifestation of the gifts.”
“This new level of apostolic grace will translate apostolic authority into apostolic power and action Kingdom works that will bring real, physical, literal change in the earth. Acts 4:33 speaks of an abundant grace that was upon the early apostles as they witnessed of Jesus, and great signs, wonders and power were being released through them.” (Dutch Sheets)
Christians need to be encouraged, exhorted and lifted up to walk in the LIGHT and LOVE OF OUR LORD.
“For you were formerly darkness, but now you are light in the LORD; walk as children of light; for the fruit of light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth, trying to learn what is pleasing to the LORD.” Ephesians 5:8-10
We may know and understand that salvation is a free gift from God. But we must also be taught and trained how to grow and be transformed to become spiritually mature Christians. Many ministries teach on how to simply manage or ‘put away childish behavior.’ Sometimes this means we begin to cover up and deny deep hidden things that form our character, attitudes and behavior. We are then repressing our inner most thoughts, and they are lodged deeply within our hearts, souls and spirits. These unexpressed feelings cause the enemies destructive bitter roots of resentment and unforgiveness and rob us of our rich inheritance in Christ Jesus. This will then prevent us from being transformed, so that we may truly walk, and live and move freely in newness of life, in the light and love of Jesus, being transformed daily, from glory to glory, by the power of God’s Holy Spirit.
Putting on the full armor of god, studying and meditating on God’s Word, discovering and spending intimate time with Jesus, and prayer with great faith are all important. The armor of God, prepares us for battle. His Word and Holy Spirit are our weapons. But we are to also ‘put on’ the love of God. We need to pray to operate and occupy the land, from the supernatural power of God’s love.
God’s Word teaches that we all have different spiritual gifts. One gift is not more important than any other. God gives us these gifts to be unified, exhort one another and minister in unity, love and one accord to benefit the entire Body of Christ.
God is calling us to awaken and arise out of our complacency. “Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. For this reason it says, ‘Awake sleeper and arise from the dead and Christ will shine on you.’ ” Ephesians 5:11-14
Awaken! Arise! God is shaking and moving in greater ways than ever before! Too many people’s hearts have become dim to the realm of God’s glory. We must teach the younger generation the JOY of entering into the Holy Presence of God rather than just hearing about it. We are hearing a generation crying out on every street corner, desperate for real Christianity. “But even now, declares the LORD, return to Me with all your hearts- with fasting, crying and mourning. Tear your hearts, not your clothes. Return to the LORD your God. Schedule a time to fast. Call for an assembly. Gather the people. Prepare them for a holy meeting. Assemble the leaders. Gather the children, even the nursing infants.” Joel 2:12-16
This rising generation is crying out for the LIGHT AND LOVE OF GOD. Different religions have diluted the GOOD NEWS GOSPEL OF CHRIST AND HIS LOVE. Different denominations of pastors, teachers and Christian leaders may be reaching out to win the lost but they are not proclaiming the full Gospel of Jesus. There is great awakening within the Army of God! So we are to arise and reject the form of godliness that denies the actual supernatural power of God. God’s Holy Spirit is releasing a new hunger and thirst in people’s hearts to see the real power of God manifested. They hunger for a real God, with real power. They need a real true encounter with our Creator, the One and only Living God.
This generation has welcomed a world full of high tech social media that has entered into the world of the evil, satanic spirit realm. We must teach them how to bring down God’s Power and Glory. Instead of the counterfeit superheroes they hear about through the occult and new age practices, they need to hear about the real true hero, Jesus, who will give them real joy and a real lasting relationship with our One and only true Living God. Now is the time in churches for God’s people to experience the real power and presence of our living LORD. This will satisfy the longing and hunger in their souls. This will equip them to become spiritually healthy, grounded and rooted Christians in their world and sphere of influence.
There is a great urgency that is growing in the hearts of believers for holiness, righteousness
and purity. Christians are waking up, rejecting old legalistic ideas, and awakening to the power of what Jesus did for us all. Renewed faith is rising. The Bible teaches us that where there is no vision, the people will perish. We need to cast the full transforming vision through the power and glory of God in such a way that those around us may capture it, rise up with renewed faith and run with it. We as parents and grandparents need to raise our children to be spiritual champions. We must give them the confidence of who God created them individually to be, and KNOW THE LOVE OF GOD….WHO they are IN GOD, and WHO HE IS IN THEM. We need to give teach them their rich inheritance IN JESUS so they will fully know that their faith is grounded ON THE SOLID ROCK OF JESUS, giving them the full understanding to continue their spiritual growth day by day. This goal should become the parents and grandparents vision.
They must be taught that prayer is a relationship and communion with God. As we minister to others through prayer and teaching, we are in fact helping to transform the unbelieving heart of the believer. As parents and grandparents, we must teach our children to experience the transforming power of God so they will not carry ‘childish things’ into adulthood. God wants to transform all of us by applying the Cross, the Blood of Jesus, and the resurrection life of Jesus to every part of our minds, hearts, spirits and souls. Only then can we be great leaders and World Changers.
This is the main thing that I pray you will receive from this message! GOD WANTS US TO LOVE OTHERS TO LIFE. I pray that each of you reading this will really think on this and come to grasp and fully understand the power of God’s Word, through His message of salvation, redemption, and transformation available to us through CHRIST JESUS’ sacrificial Blood on the Cross of Calvary. This is the very heart and foundation of God’s Word. He will lead, guide and direct you by His Holy Spirit to minister from His Heart, His love and the passion of Jesus, so you will strengthen others by your testimony and instill the hope of the glory of God throughout all the world. “They overcame him (the enemy) by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony.” Revelations 12:11. This is one of the greatest, most powerful biblical declarations of faith’s confession! This is the heart of faith’s confession, based on God’s Word and the Blood of the Lamb, which is the redemptive work of Jesus in our daily lives. The enemies accusing voice is swallowed up in the triumph of Calvary! The basis of our triumph is the Cross of Jesus and the authority of God’s Word. The Kingdom of God has already established triumph over the Serpent! So although we may be facing temporal situations that are often fierce and painful struggles, we must have faith that God’s Kingdom to come shall be His Kingdom that is already established! The full breadth and balance of God’s Kingdom is given to us. And the presence of God’s Kingdom calls each believer to arise and go forward with responsible spiritual warfare prayer and anticipate Victory IN JESUS. So let us ARISE WITH RENEWED FAITH, looking to that day of God’s ultimate Kingdom, with full knowledge that God’s Holy Spirit is preparing us for Kingdom Victory.
God is calling forth His Army in these latter days. He is calling us to arise and come up higher into His Holy Presence. He is sending down His Glory. He is calling us out! “Get up! Cry out at night, every hour on the hour. Pour your heart out like water in the Presence of the LORD! Lift up your hands to Him (in Prayer! Thanksgiving! Worship and Praise!). For the life of your little children who faint from (spiritual) hunger at every street corner.” Lamentations 2:19
We must remember “The Kingdom does not consist of persuasive words of man’s wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Holy Spirit and the power of God.” I Corinthians 2:4
We are the last days Army of God. Let us pray with great faith and no doubts, as Jesus taught us, “Thy Kingdom come. They will be done. On Earth as it is in Heaven.”
God is opening a divine veil! There is a great awakening! Renewed spiritual revolution, redemption, revelation, and restoration of God’s people! Get ready! Get ready! Get ready! This is a great reformation revival, of energy, inspiration, and anticipation! The isolation of the miraculous inspiration is coming to an end for such a time as this! RISE UP AND BE PREPARED to catch the new wave and wind of God’s Holy Spirit! A glory cloud of God’s prophetic Holy Presence! A fresh breath of God’s healing, transforming, restoring air! We all need to be united in His Love! United in one accord in great anticipation for a CELEBERATION OF HIS PRESENCE! LET US ALL LIFT UP OUR HANDS AND VOICES AND PRAISE HIM! HE IS THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD of lords! He is holy. And we glorify His Name. I love the song, “LORD YOU ARE HOLY!” “He is wonderful, glorious, holy and righteous. Victorious. Conqueror. Triumphant and mighty. Healer. Deliverer. Shield and Defense. Strong Tower and my Best Friend. He is Omnipotent. Omnipresent. Soon coming King. Alpha. Omega. Lord of everything! You are Holy LORD! The angels cry Holy! Our God is Holy! Our hearts cry Holy! Jesus You are Holy. Holy is Your Name.”
Rise Up Parents! Teachers! Leaders! Pastors! Youth Generation! Rise up all over the world, everywhere, people of God! Come forth mighty ones in the Name of Jesus! Let us teach people how to receive the fresh breath of our LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST and be transformed by the light and love of Jesus Christ our LORD and Savior. May we all flow in the supernatural unforced rhythm of God’s Holy Spirit so we may “live and move and have our being in Him!” Acts 17:28.
Our Prayer for You is Ephesians 3:14-21 -
“For this reason I bow my knees to the FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST
from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named.
That he would grant you, according to the riches of His glory,
to be strengthened with might through HIS SPIRIT in the inner man.
That CHRIST may dwell in your hearts through faith;
that you, being rooted and grounded in love
may be able to comprehend with all the saints
what is the width and length and depth and height-
To KNOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST which passes knowledge;
that you may be filled with all the FULNESS OF GOD.
(full number, full completions, full measure, plenitude, that which has been completed.)
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think,
according the power that works IN US,
to Him be glory in the church by CHRIST JESUS
to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
