Presence-Living

THIS MORNING I HEARD THE SPIRIT SAY, “MY BRIDE IS DISTRACTED AND PRE-OCCUPIED WITH MANY THINGS TO DO, THINGS THAT KEEP HER FROM MY PRESENCE.  IT IS TIME TO WATCH AND PRAY, SEEK MY FACE AND BE HUNGRY FOR MY PRESENCE, WHERE YOU WILL HEAR MY voice AND BE ANOINTED WITH FRESH OIL TO DO THE THINGS I HAVE PRE-ORDAINED FOR YOU TO WALK IN.  THIS IS THE BRIDEGROOM WATCH!”

The season has shifted again into a time where God wants to do a work of acceleration in the glory of His Presence for those who seek His face with undivided attention. New mantles and apostolic and prophetic mandates are to be released in the glory for those who have relinquished their own agendas to do the bidding of the Holy Ghost in instant obedience.

God wants to accelerate His work and will on the earth through His counsel released in the glory realm.

There are three practical facets of the glory of His Presence:

Everything hinges on His Presence.  In our devotional time, worship from a pure heart, in spirit and in truth, ushers us into the glory realm – not only listening to songs on an I-pod, but personal love songs from our spirit until His Presence comes and His glory envelops us.  His glory is His tangible Presence.  When we come into this glory realm, we need to lean into the Spirit, expectant to RECEIVE what He wants to impart to us by Word, vision, revelation or such, which the Spirit drops into our spirit, so we need to “extend” our senses into the Spirit in order to receive from Him by faith.  When you release this “now” Word into the glory of His Presence by prophetic decree over a person, situation, region, country, etc. it will have swift effect.  You can even sing it back to the Lord in agreement and praise, rejoicing in His revelation to you, calling it forth with the absolute knowing that it will come into manifestation.  When He counsels you in what to DO, simply be obedient and the Spirit of might will be in operation to perform His miracle-working power.

The secret is to get your mind out of the way and simply getting lost in His fiery Presence.  Here in the glory, by faith, we will receive visions, Words of Knowledge, strategy, revelation and a “knowing” of the Holy One, Who will by His fiery Presence consume the self until we are melted into Him to be carriers and dispensers of the glory.

Let us set our faces like flint to keep our focus on the Lord, beholding Him (Acts 2:25) in our daily living, being a house of worship, practicing His Presence consistently during the day, abiding in Him, in His Word and in His love, in prayer (praying much in the spirit) and in worship.  Out of this intimate walking with Him, talking with Him, listening “up” into His heavenly counsel, seeing with spiritual perception and simply doing what we hear His say, and see Him do, we will live in union-communion with our Bridegroom, creatively co-working with Him (by speaking His Word and doing His will) to establish His Kingdom in the earth – as it is in heaven.  What a glorious way to live – with the dove on your shoulder!  Be careful not to grieve Him or disturb Him by thought, word or deed……….!

In corporate worship, when the glory cloud comes into a meeting, the Prophetic Word that is received, spoken forth and agreed upon in unity with the believers becomes creative in its effect wherever He sends it to – to a people group, a region, country, etc.  It will not return to Him void. (Is. 55:11)

 

FOXES IN THE VINEYARD

There are a few strategies of the enemy that we need to be aware of at this time, namely distractions, offenses and the spirit of the world.  Be watchful and alert to discern these assignments of the enemy and counter it by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Be watchful to discern distractions, simply let it go and purposefully get your attention back in focus on the Lord.

The opportunity to take offenses or to become critical and judgmental is around every corner.  Again, discern it as a strategy of the enemy to get you out of tune with the Spirit.  We simply cannot afford it, so deal with it by repentance and choose to bless and love those who rub you up the wrong way, living in peace with all men by the power of the Holy Ghost!

The Bride of Christ is separated from the world, so do not get enticed by the temporary pleasures and dainties of the world, and the lust to “have” the “stuff”, but turn your back on it once and for all.  By Christ Jesus the world is crucified unto us and we unto the world. (Gal.6: 14)

In want to encourage you to pursue His Presence with your all!!

Abiding in Him
