Good Morning Precious and Dearly Loved Saint and Child of Our Abba Father!
“Just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live In Him, rooted and built up In Him, strengthen in the faith as you were taught, overflowing with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:7. Such a simple verse, but yet highly profound! So many Truths are bound up in this short, but all-powerful verse! Christianity always starts and ends with receiving all of the abounding given to us by the Father! We never stop receiving and living from the outpouring of His Love and Grace! His supernatural Love and Grace is what sustains and allows us to live above trouble in the earthly realm. We will never grow out of this receiving mode!
There is so much Churchianity that is striving to move God with all their over-zealous religious activity of their own flesh, to get God to send revival! God is not the one who needs moving, it is our own hearts that need to be awakened to what The Father has already poured out onto us! Faith is receiving and trusting in the love, Grace and Goodness of the Father that He already completely moved on our behalf! “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3.
If the Father has already given to us every spiritual blessing that exists in Christ Jesus in the heavenly realms, what then do I lack in the spirit realm? If “His divine power has given us EVERYTHING we need for life and godliness”, what do I lack? If He, in His divine, supernatural and miraculous power and Grace has already given me everything, I don’t think I have to wake God up to move on our behalf, do you?
This was the problem with the Jews, rather than receiving the gift of God’s Grace, they pursued righteousness not by faith (receiving, trusting, abiding, resting, enjoying…) but as if were by works. “For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge. Since they did not know the righteousness that comes from God (and is received by faith) and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s (gift) of righteousness. Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes (receives).” Romans 10:2-4. Faith believes the Father has already moved in every way on behalf, and Faith receives what the Father has done, is doing, and will do! But faith is ALWAYS in the receiving mode!!!!
The Father has made us new creations in Christ Jesus! We have been raised up with Christ and have been seated with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus! We have been glorified, Romans 8:30; perfected, Hebrews 10:14; completely healed and made whole, 1 Peter 2:24; made one with Jesus, 1 Corinthians 6:17 and John 17:22; and we are as Jesus is, 1 John 4:17. How much more does God have to do to us? “Well, God needs to send Revival.”
What if all the church would believe with a depth and a power and a fire in the depths of our hearts, do you think there wouldn’t be a mighty move of God by the Holy Spirit? In the Book of Acts, the disciples got baptized (receiving) in the Holy Spirit with Power and Fire, and the Gospel spread like a wild fire onto all the ends of the earth! The power and Fire of God got extremely deep into their heart and they went from being full of fear to being as bold as lions, all in one day! This was the first day of the great outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the church! The Great Awakening of humanity started right there!!!
The Father has been pouring out the fullness of Christ, into the church’s hearts, ever since! It is time for us, the church, to wake up to who and what is inside of us! We have the fullness of the glorified Christ living inside of us and we live inside of Him, as He is He is, one with Him! The kingdom of God is already within us!!!! We just simply need to be wakened up to who we are In Him! Not in doctrinal theory with our over-abounding and analytical intellects, but with the Fire and Power of the Holy Spirit that already dwells deep inside of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We have already been healed! We are already In Christ with All of fullness of power and authority! The Father is constantly pouring His Love (which is a blazing FIRE) our hearts 24/7! It is time that we own up that we have been spiritually dull and that we need be wakened up to the Truth of the Great outpouring of the FIRE of God is already happening in the Spirit realm! Our hearts need to come alive! They need to come out of the sleepiness of worldly living and unbelief!!!!
There is a MIGHTY FIRE inside of each and every child of God, especially the ones who have asked for the baptism of Power and Fire the Holy Spirit!!! We need to cry out for the Spirit to awaken us in the depths of our bones to the Truth of who we already are!!!!
Are we tired of playing church yet? It is time for the Power and Fire of God to be awakened in all of us, not just in a few special elite!!! FIRE!!! FIRE!!! FIRE!!!! FIRE!!!! Of His almighty Love to wake us up to who we are In Him!!!!!! RECEIVE THIS GRACE of the outpouring of His fiery Love into the depths of your bones!!!!!!! SHALOM!!!!!!!!
