*Zechariah 10:1 “Ask of the Lord rain in the time of the latter or spring rain. It is the Lord Who makes lightnings which usher in the rain and give men showers, and grass to everyone in the field.”
*Joel 2,3 May we rend our hearts and REPENT and return to the Lord, separate the precious from the vile (Jeremiah ) and be His mouthpiece, giving Him all the Glory –“God and God alone”.
“Let the weak say, I am strong”…The second outpouring of the Holy Spirit brings the latter Rain, are we ready for the Father to move and be revealed?
*Romans 3:9-27 …”no person will be justified (made righteous, acquitted, and judged acceptable) in His sight by observing the works prescribed by the Law. For (the real function of) the Law is to make men recognize and be conscious of sin (not mere perception, but an acquaintance with sin which works toward repentance, faith, and holy character).”
*Romans 6:7-15 Let us be baptized into death of “self”, as we die in Jesus Christ, so that we too can live in Resurrection and Ascension Glory, where our spirits soar in infinite dimensions, being one with God (1 Cor.6:17). We are slaves of those we choose to obey, even sin! Having been set free from sin (to miss the mark, purpose of our lives : Proverbs 19:2), let us live as servants of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will, purpose, and action of God).
*Philippians3:10 “For my determined purpose is that I may know Him (that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly), and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection (which it exerts over believers), and that I may share His sufferings as to be continually transformed (in spirit into His likeness even) to his death…” May we say that!!!!
*Ephesians 3:4-21 What an honor it will be to know the mystery of Christ! May the Holy Spirit lead us to enlighten all men about this mystery, as we yield to Him to transform us into the likeness of Christ to become “sons of God” (Romans 8) and enable us to make the Father’s Wisdom known to all. We need to repent of arrogance and be “bold” that we may have free access (an unreserved approach to the Father God) without fear
(blameless: 1 Thess.5:23), but in LOVE.
Salvation, born-again, Blood of Christ and His Cross, Word of God, revelations, persecution, worship, and then only BOLDNESS! Do we spiritually mature through these steps?
“May Christ through your faith (actually) dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted in love and founded securely on love…(That you may really come) to know (practically, through experience for yourselves) the love of Christ…
Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the (action of His) power is at work within us, is able to (carry out His purpose and) do superabundantly, far over and above all that we (dare) ask or think (infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams) – To Him be glory…”
*2 Cor. 5:14 “For the love of Christ controls and urges and impels us…” GOD is LOVE (1 John 4:8-19)
How then can we boast in ourselves- even in what we do right in His eyes, or with others, if He alone is the One Who is at work within us, urging us on by His Love? In Him we live and move and have our being, He made us to seek Him (Acts ,28). Let us boast in Christ as one in this network, knowing God’s purposes alone will stand (Proverbs 19:21-23). He has the Name above all our names, in His Name we find salvation and a strong tower of strength (Proverbs 18:10). Instead of trying to make for ourselves a name or to protect our names (be of reputation), let us run into His Name and be safe, high above evil and strong. Let us love one another, that each one of us may fulfill our callings.
*Luke 10:19 “Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and (physical and mental strength and ability) over all the power that the enemy (possesses); and nothing shall in any way harm you.”
*Numbers “God is not a man, that He should tell or act a lie…”
*May it be said of us too: ‘We have heard that God is with you (doing what is in your hearts), we want to go with you’.
(1 Chron. 17:2 ; Zechariah 8:23)
*2 Peter ,11 “Because of this, brethren, be all the more solicitous and eager to make sure (to ratify, to strengthen, to make steadfast) your calling and election; for if you do this, you will never stumble or fall. Thus there will be richly and abundantly provided for you entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
*Matthew24:24 “For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and they will show great signs and wonders so as to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect (God’s chosen ones).” Let us not be found asleep or out of focus, for the greatest end-time sign is that the love of the great body of people for Jesus is already cooling down (Matthew 24:12). God will remove those who preach what people want to hear or pay for to hear (Jeremiah 23). Our greatest responsibility is our own intimate relationship with God and before we minister to people, to minister to God!!!
Each one of us will stand alone before God (Ezekiel 3).
*Revelation 19:7-16 The marriage of the Lamb is at hand, we will strive to motivate the Bride of Christ to prepare herself! Christ will come back on a white horse, His eyes like a flame of fire, on His head many kingly crowns (diadems), with His title (Name) inscribed and called : The Word of God. He will be dressed in a robe dyed by dipping in Blood and on His garment (robe) and on His thigh He will have a Name (title) inscribed : KING of kings and LORD of lords.
*Revelation22:14 “Blessed (happy and to be envied) are those who cleanse their garments, that they may have the authority and right to (approach) the tree of life and to enter through the gates into the city.”
*Our calling in Creation Calls Christ:
Isaiah 62:10 “Go through, go through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Cast up, cast up the highway! Gather out the stones. Lift up a standard or ensign over and for the peoples.”
There is no other Standard to raise up, but Jesus Christ Himself as the Word of God the Father! He is alert and active, watching over His Word to perform it! (Jeremiah 1:12) The Father God sanctifies us (purifies, consecrates, makes us holy) and separates us unto Himself by Truth – His Word is Truth (John 17).
In CREATION CALLS CHRIST our passion and vision for each member is, to be found in Christ on the bosom of the Father God (John 1:18), to be intimately in a relationship with each One of the Tri-Une Godhead on the narrow road. That “unity in diversity” will mean, we are all unique, yet made one in Christ through the FEAR of GOD. May we love and pray for another, that we may raise up the STANDARD of JESUS CHRIST –the whole WORD of GOD. We will not rely on flesh, or on one another, but accept the Sovereign Father God as our only Covering (Psalm 91:1,2 ; Exodus 15:3), Jesus Christ as our only Head and Teacher of Righteousness (Ephesians 1:22 ; John 3:2 ; John 13:13) and the Holy Spirit as our only Leader (Romans 8:14;15 ; 1 John 2:20-27).
We will embrace the cup of shame and suffering to partake of the Divine Life that is in the Blood of Christ (Deut.12:23 ; John 6:54) and take up whatever He needs necessary to deal with our flesh (Jeremiah 14:7), so that we will not only race with men on foot, but be ready to race with the horses (Jeremiah 12:5), to be seated with Christ in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6), living in His Resurrection and Ascension Glory!!! May we be found on the “highway”, knowing God’s Ways and secrets
(Isaiah 35:8 ; Psalm 103:7).
As one in Christ, we will prophesy ; CREATION CALLS CHRIST….
being companions of all of those who fear and worship God (Psalm 119:63)! God and God alone! To Them be all our intimate love, glory and eternal worship!!!
