As we are approaching the Feast of Passover, I sense that our Father is doing a deep preparation in those who are seeking the Lord’s face. If we are too busy spending time in separation to hear His heart beat, we will miss what He wants to do in us. I sense that it is almost as if He is busy with a spring cleaning, removing that which is old and dusty, taking us out of our comfort zones of how we were used to doing things – also in ministry; also shining His light on our hearts to give us an opportunity to realign our attitudes and break old strongholds. Everything of the old self is being stripped off so that we can be clothed upon with His tabernacling Presence.
God is truly pouring out His Spirit in prophecy, dreams and visions and we need to be watchful and alert to discern what He is conveying to us.
A fresh wind of the Spirit is blowing through our garden to bring forth the fragrance of the spring flowers, speaking of an expected fruitfulness to the glory and honor of the King.
EMBRACING THE CROSS AND RESURRECTION POWER
Those who have truly embraced the cross, living the crucified life-style in intimacy with the King, will know their identity and authority in Christ and rise up in the power of the resurrection, doing great exploits as sons of resurrection.
The earth is groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God to show forth His glory and bring the abundant life of the Kingdom into every sphere of the seven mountains of society in mighty miracle power.
Rom. 8:19: King James 2000 Bible
“For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.
This is truly the time where Is.60 will be in full swing. As great darkness is coming on the earth, so the greater glory will shine through the sons of resurrection, rising up in the full shining glory of the Son to bring heaven to earth.
Isaiah 60:1-5King James Version (KJV)
“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but theLord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.”
The sound of the sons of resurrection is arising in the earth as enlightenment comes to know the might of His power on the inside of us – the same power that raised Jesus from the dead! Resurrection songs will now abound!
This resurrection power of the Holy Ghost will operate mightily through the ones who have no agenda other than to do the will of the Father, seeing the Son of God glorified, delighting in their oneness with Him, being true ambassadors of the Kingdom of heaven in the earth.
Eph.1: 19 “And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come.”
We need to recognize the strategy of the enemy to infiltrate our minds with doubt, fear, unbelief and (especially in this time period) despondency and heaviness. We are not unfamiliar with his wiles!
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” ( Ephesians 6:10-11 )
The secret to overcome is to know our identity and authority as sons of resurrection and “Set your mind on things above, not on the earth. If you have been raised with Christ (to a new life, sharing in His resurrection from the dead), keep seeking the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” (Col.3:2,1 – Ampl.)
We need to realize that God has given us the power to trample on snakes and scorpions and all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19) and has co-seated us together with Christ at the right hand of the Father (Eph.2:6).
From that position in union with Him, we exercise the resurrection power and authority over every weapon that is forged against us.
“Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons: freely you have received, freely give.”
“The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.”
