China: This Nation Shall Wear the Crown of Life!

By Veronika West

 

 

A Word for China: “This nation shall wear The Crown of Life!”

 

I heard The Spirit say, “Have I not said the nation of China is at a spiritual tipping point?

 

Now see!  For the spotlight of heaven now shines upon the nation of china.

 

Watch!  For the cries of a remnant have been heard in My Courts and so My Grace shall be poured out upon this nation and even where the spirit of death has ravaged the land and the people have raped creation, My Grace, My Grace, shall be poured out upon a nation that have been brought to its knees.

 

Watch and pray, as new and greater life shall emerge from the darkness that covers the land and its people.

 

For China shall arise from the ashes of death and destruction and My Name shall be upon their lips, and My Glory shall be upon their heads and the nations of the earth shall be drawn to the brightness of their rising.

 

China shall become as a sign and wonder among the nations!  Yes!  A sign of My saving Grace and a wonder of My Miracle working power.

 

The nation of China shall be sifted as wheat and shall surely be shaken to its core.

 

But fear not!  For I shall breath resurrection life and power over this land and I shall expose every stronghold and every demonic stranglehold and I shall reveal the beauty that has been hidden beneath.

 

Watch and pray!  For China shall wear The Crown of Life and shall become a nation set apart for My Kingdom Purposes in the nations of the earth.

 

China, My Eye is upon you, and My Hand of Judgment and Justice now comes against you, but like Job, you shall declare in the days ahead… “We have known Him by the hearing of our ears but now our eyes have seen Him”….” says The Spirit of The Living God.

 

 

 

Blessings to you all.

How to Love in a Way that Creates Change

By Doug Addison

 

 

This week we celebrate a time of loving one another.  Happy Valentine’s Day everybody!

 

My prayer for you today is that you encounter God’s love in a brand-new way.  His love is greater than you could ever dream possible.

 

It creates deep and meaningful change in your life and the lives of those around you.

 

It was years after I started following Jesus, and even a while after I entered into ministry, that I really grasped The LORD’s love for me.

 

When I got the true impartation of perfect love, everything in my life fell into place. Here’s a little of what I learned while I was living this out.

 

Encounter the Love of God Daily

 

I encounter the love of The LORD every single day of my life.  It’s not always effortless for me to receive His love.  Sometimes it’s easy to remember all my flaws when I’m standing in the presence of God.

 

But when The LORD looks at you, He sees your past, your present and your future all at once.  He loves you just the same — now and forever!

 

God’s Love is Greater than Your Mess-ups

 

God knows what you struggle with and why you struggle with it.  He also knows the potential you have to do what He’s called you to do.  When you struggle with your identity in how God sees you, this means you’re living in fear!

 

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love,”   1 John 4:18 NIV.

 

Once I truly understood this verse, I finally got healed of a four-year health affliction that was tormenting me. I encourage you to let the love of God wash over you so you can be made perfect in it!

 

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness,”   1 John 1:9 NIV.

 

Your sins aren’t even written in your Book of Purpose!

 

God’s love has completely wiped away all of your mistakes.  It’s time to start living out each day in this wonderful freedom God’s forgiveness has given us.

 

God’s Love is large

“Love Is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance,”   1 Corinthians 13:4 TPT.

 

This is just a small portion of this amazing passage in the Bible about love.  I encourage you to read all of 1 Corinthians 13 in The Passion Translation. Many times, reading a familiar Bible passage in a different translation completely opens up new understanding!

 

My favorite part is how it all ends:

 

“Until then, there are three things that remain: faith, hope, and love — yet love surpasses them all,”   1 Corinthians 13:13 TPT.

 

Everything will eventually pass away, but love will remain.  Perfect love is waiting for you.  Maybe you just haven’t understood it up until now.  This next part will help you.

 

A love impartation

Many of you reading this may feel discouraged today.  Try praying this prayer:

 

LORD, help me to love the way You love.

 

The message of the world is hatred and revenge, while Yours is love and life abundantly.

 

Help me to rise above the message of the world so I can receive Your better message of love.

 

Your perfect love is filling up my life completely right now.

 

After praying this, don’t be surprised if over the next few days you feel the strong need to contact friends or family.

 

God might even ask you to apologize to them or renew a lost connection.  Maybe you will need to forgive someone or set a situation right that ended poorly.

 

You can rest in the fact that all of this will be for your ultimate good!  No matter what.

 

I hope this is the best Valentine’s Day you’ve ever had!

 

 

 

Blessings,

Conformer or Transformer?

By Greg Laurie

 

 

           

LISTEN

 

 

 

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

—Romans 12:2

 

 

 

Are you a conformer or a transformer? Either you will be conformed to this world, or you will transform the world.

 

The apostle Paul wrote, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect” (Romans 12:2 NLT).

 

You can decide to not stand out in any way, or you can decide to be a light for Jesus Christ.

 

Psalm 84:11 tells us, “The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right” (NLT). If the Lord tells you not to do something, then He is trying to keep you from a bad thing. Because if it was a good thing, He would give it to you.

 

Psalm 34:8 says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!” (NLT).

 

Now, our definition of good might be different than God’s definition of good. Our definition of good probably is something along the lines of what’s fun, pleasurable, free of pain, and in the moment.

 

But God’s definition of good may be what is productive, character forming, and eternally focused. There are things we go through that are not enjoyable at the moment, but they’re producing something that is far greater.

 

We look at the small picture; God looks at the big picture. We look at the here and now; God looks at the by and by.

 

His will for us is good, even though it might be difficult at times. One day we’ll see that. But until that day, we have to trust the Lord. So present yourself to God. Don’t be conformed to this world.
