Faith and Power

The Lord is pouring out His Spirit in dreams and visions and for those who have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying, pay heed to the prophetic instructions.

BEING FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

 

I recently saw in a dream how a helicopter was being fueled with a pipeline disappearing into the heavenlies. The Word of the Lord came to me clearly, saying,  

 “As you stay hooked-up to the Holy Spirit, you will walk   in unprecedented miracles.” 

This was a personal Word, but I sense that it is for everyone who believes and who will stay connected to the power Source.  The time that is before us, will not be easy and many are already being shaken, simply because they do not stay hooked-up to the Holy Spirit, constantly being filled with His power, waiting on Him to lead and to guide through shakings and uncertainties.

We are in a time frame in which our heavenly Father wants to fill the earth with HIs glory and we will be His glory containers in the earth, ready to be poured out as the Spirit moves.

“And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit.” Eph. 5:18

This is a present tense imperative, which indicates “be always filled, controlled, and influenced by the Spirit,” or “Be being filled by the Spirit.” It is not a momentary action, but a continuous action.  It is to be filled with Christ (Eph.1: 23) unto the fullness of God (Eph.3: 19) with the main ingredient of divine love.  This causes us to overflow with Christ from spirit to soul to deed, evident in our speaking, singing, psalming and giving thanks to the Lord (vv.19-20) and causes us to subject ourselves to one another in honoring one another and esteeming one another higher than ourselves in the unity of the body. (v.21)

LET US MAKE SURE THAT OUR LAMPS ARE SHINING BRIGHTLY AND THAT WE HAVE SPARE OIL LIKE THE WISE VIRGINGS – IN READINESS TO MEET OUR BRIDEGROOM!

True worship (not the habit or the show) is not an outward action, but a joyous outflow of being filled with the Holy Spirit  – spirit to Spirit.  Thanksgiving is the proof that we really believe that He has already provided in all our need – spirit, soul and body and materially!

WE WILL BE TESTED IN OUR RELATIONSHIPS – MORE THAN EVER!  DO WE BEAR THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT, OR THE FRUIT OF THE OLD SELF?

DO WE WALK IN LOVE???

 We need to come to the end of our own “cleverness” and fully rely on the Lord in every situation, calling on the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding for revelation of His will in every situation – and, most important of all – keep our hands and our mouths off until we have His Word!  When His glory goes before us signs, wonders and miracles will follow!   “Miracles” here denotes the supernatural power of God coming to our rescue in all our situations and also through us to others in their need.  Hallelujah!

The helicopter also speaks of flexibility and maneuverability. Helicopters are used in terrain where airplanes do not have access – usually in rescue operations.  This speaks of being available and ready for the promptings of the Holy Spirit to move quickly into situations where we can be helping (rescuing) others in their need. But take heed that you do not move in your own power, but under the unction of the Holy Spirit and in His resurrection power!

BE READY!  THERE IS GREAT EXPECTANCY IN THE SPIRIT REALM AS WE APPROACH THE CELEBRATION OF PENTECOST!  I SENSE THAT A FRESH EMPOWERING IS ABOUT TO BE POURED OUT WITH UNPRECEDENTED MIRACLES FLOODING THE EARTH!

 BUILD UP YOUR “NOW” FAITH BY LISTENING TO THE RHEMA AND THE LOGOS WORD and PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT.

 In a second dream I was shown scenes of what is about to come globally, which include anarchy, destruction and havoc.  As I was watching, a vehicle came by with a loudspeaker, proclaiming, “No curses of witchcraft can alight on you” with a Scripture reference.  I was amazed at the boldness of the man making these proclamations into the airways.

I returned to where my hostess was waiting for me, watching to see how I would react to the scenery outside, expecting me to call off the meeting that was scheduled.  As she realized that I was determined to carry on, she almost scornfully made an announcement over a megaphone that I was going to preach on faith.

We will be tested in times to come as to whether we will stand in faith and keep on proclaiming the truth in the face of adversity.

The question is, “Will our faith stand the test?”

“Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith.”

II Cor. 13:5

It is easy to tout your faith while everything is seemingly well, but will we do what God tells us to do in His Word (both Logos and Rhema) in the face of persecution?

While we have the opportunity, let us take time to be strengthened in our faith firstly by hearing the Word of God (Rhema) (out of our own mouths) and testing our own obedience to the written Word (Logos) by bringing ourselves in alignment with the requirements of the Word in our thought-life, our speaking the Word and being doers of the Word.

Secondly, let us build ourselves up in our most holy faith by praying in the spirit (Jude v.20) as much and as often as possible.

Saturate yourself in the Word, so that you be rooted and grounded in His Love.  Perfect love drives out all fear and His unfailing Love will be your stronghold in time of trouble.

Those of us who have already gone through the fire of purification, will recall the faithfulness of our God in times of adversity remembering how He came through for us in miraculous power to break us through in victory.  He will do it again.  ONLY BELIEVE!

THE CROSS IS THE SECRET OF LIVING IN VICTORY

 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”

Rev.12:11

Let us be ready to fulfill the great commission:  For those who BELIEVE, these signs shall follow………!
