This is a New Day of Authority and Power
By Elaine Tavolacci
Not Only in Word, but in Power
“For the Kingdom of God is not in word but in power.” (1 Corinthians 4:20)
We are living in
a season of shifting and shaking; experiencing many changes worldwide as well as in our personal lives and ministries. To some people it appears as if the darkness is dominating this world, but then there are those Believers who recognize that small cloud
the size of a man’s hand that is rising out of the sea. They know that the days ahead will be glorious times of demonstration of the power of the Holy Spirit, just as they had experienced in the book of Acts.
The Lord wants to use
every one of us in extraordinary ways; not in word only, but in manifestation of His power through healing, miracles, signs and wonders.
Jesus said in His Word: “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will
cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover” (Mark 16:17-18). The glory of the Lord is going to
shake many ministries who operate in godliness, but deny the full power of the Spirit.
In the Book of 1 Corinthians Chapter 2, Paul told the Corinthian Church that he did not come with eloquence of speech or carnal persuasiveness, but
with the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. Paul did not speak mere words of man, but he ministered through demonstration, with miracles, signs and wonders following. When Paul prayed for people they were healed, set free, delivered, and even the dead
were raised. He ministered in authority and boldness declaring to the people that their faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
“And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom,
but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:4-5)
You Are the Chosen Generation—Walk in His Authority!
1 Corinthians 2:9-10, “But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’ But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the
Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.”
The Lord says: “This is a new day. You are the generation who I have chosen to walk in My authority, power and demonstration of My Kingdom on this earth. I am about
to release My glory on this earth as it is in Heaven. You have been created for miracles, signs and wonders. I am looking for those who will speak to the mountains, rather than circle the mountains repeatedly.
“I am looking for those
who will run the race with endurance and stand strong when the winds and waves of adversity arise. They will be those who will walk on water rather than allowing the waves to overtake them. They are those who will release My light into areas of darkness, and
the desire of the wicked will perish as they come into the light. They will drive out the inhabitants of the land as My glory arises within them, comes upon them and moves through them.
“As you allow My Word to sustain you, you will
be strengthened beyond your natural abilities. You will no longer be limited in your ways of thinking. You will no longer look to the wisdom of man, but you will understand the truth of My Word. As you trust Me, you will no longer be confused by diverse doctrines.
“Just as Paul threw the viper off into the fire and was unharmed, you also have the authority to throw the vipers off that try to attach themselves to you. You are not mere men and women, but you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood,
a holy nation who will release others out of the kingdom of darkness into My marvelous light. As My light is released, the darkness will instantly diminish. This is the day of the demonstration of My glory. This is the divine plan and purpose that I have for
you in this season,” says the Lord.
Romans 8:19, “For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.”
