THE MINISTRY LETTER 2021 - ISSUE 7

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

  

____...."We will continue to devote ourselves steadfastly to prayer and the ministry of the Word'.... Acts 6:4 The Amplified Translation

 

____To all those who are truly seeking first the Kingdom - those who love God with all of their heart:

 

MANY TRUE KINGDOM-MINISTRIES AND TRUE SPIRITUAL ENVIRONMENT WILL BEGIN TO SPRING UP

 

____...."He who has My commandments [gained a revelation of the Father's Will] and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him .... "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him".... John 14:21, 23 NASB

 

____...."Behold, as for the proud one, his soul is not right within him; But the righteous will live by his faith [trust in God]".... Habakkuk 2:4 NASB

 

____Many who are truly seeking the fullness of their precious Kingdom-position and destiny have gone through a number of "unpleasant experiences" in corporate settings in the past, and have been called out by the Holy Spirit to a distinct separation unto the Father and His Word. This is a very good thing for many reasons - especially for the purpose of the one who is "separated" entering into a deeper revelation of the Father [His true Nature and Character] and His Word in Their presence [free from the "restrictions" {control} placed on them in a wrong corporate setting].

 

____Without going into all of the various problems of a "church setting" wherein the Holy Spirit is NOT in full control - an environment wherein that is the case SURELY breeds a hierarchy of control [fear] and self-righteousness [pride and self-exaltation in some form], setting itself against anything that even remotely resembles a walk of faith.

 

____Through the years I have encountered many who have been mistreated by those "in authority" - something that should NOT even be happening in the midst of God's people. This is precisely why there needs to be true spiritual environments established throughout the earth - true spiritual environments that will meet the needs of the vast multitudes [of the coming Harvest] that will need to be "discipled" in the spiritual reality of the true Christian life. in order that no one "falls between the cracks", so to speak - a situation that, up until this time has been rampant in the "church at large".

 

____Also, the "spiritual environment" in the various local churches throughout the earth MUST be one of true unity and one accord - environments wherein the absolute Truths and Kingdom-principles of God's Word are continually taught and demonstrated by [and through] true "delegated authorities" who maintain a "servant heart" in the midst of those the Father has entrusted to them.

 

____All of the years of preparation has been "for such a time as this" and it will not be long before many true Kingdom-ministries and true spiritual environments will begin to "spring up" [in an accelerated manner] in every nation throughout the earth.

 

____...."For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst".... Matthew 18:20 NASB

 

        ...."Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, Coming down upon the beard, Even Aaron's beard, Coming down upon the edge of his robes. It is like the dew of Hermon Coming down upon the mountains of Zion; For there the LORD commanded the blessing - life [love, truth, revelation, righteousness] forever".... Psalms 133:1-3 NASB

        ...."Can two walk together, except they be agreed [have a concurring "revelation" of the Father's Will]".... Amos 3:3 KJV

 

"Concur" - to agree; be of the same mind [in this case the Mind of Christ]; be in one accord;

 

TRUST IN THE FATHER AND HIS WORD MUST ALWAYS BE OUR PRIORITY

 

"Trust" - firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something;

 

____I have written much on this matter of "trust" through the years - as it is one of the things that is closest to the Father's Heart. He desires each and every one of His precious children to enter into the place wherein they come to know Him [His true Character and Nature] and trust Him as He desires to be known and trusted by them.

 

____...."Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind".... Proverbs 3:5 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages]".... Isaiah 26:3-4 The Amplified Translation

 

____ First of all, it is very important for us, as children of God, to note that the Word does not specifically instruct us to trust "people" but, rather, first and foremost, to trust God "with all your heart and mind". As we do this [by faith] on a consistent basis THEN it is certain that we will know who and when to trust where "flesh and blood" are concerned - BUT the bottom line is that our trust in the Father and His Word [both of Whom are Perfect] must ALWAYS be our priority.

 

____Unfortunately, many get caught up in trusting another "inordinately" [apart from true spiritual discernment] which leads to much hurt and mistrust - a "mistrust" [un-forgiveness and offense held to] that the Enemy uses to build "a stronghold of mistrust" against the Father and His Word in their own heart.

 

____The Church was NEVER meant to be anything other than a perfect "safe-haven" [safe place] for all who enter into that environment - an environment of trust and trustworthiness that would continually lead one into a deeper trust and fellowship with the Father and Jesus [in and by the power of the Holy Spirit - Who is the Spirit of Love]. In this final hour, we will see the Father divinely restore things [in the midst of all those who truly love Him] to the way that He originally intended - and the perfect fruit of this "divine restoration" will be a Glorious Church that will "turn the world upside down" before we leave here.

 

"safe haven" - the place [both spiritually and physically-location ally] wherein the "deepest desires" of one's heart come to fruition [are met] in the safety of the Father's Presence;

 

        ...."Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distresses. He caused the storm to be still, So that the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad because they were quiet, so He guided them to their desired haven [harbor, place of refuge from the storm]".... Psalms 107:28-30 NASB

 

WHEN ONE IS FAITHFUL TO TRUST GOD THEN HE WILL ENTRUST THEM WITH OTHERS

 

____ The sad truth of the matter is that, up until this time, there are few out there [relatively speaking] that are found "trustworthy" to any great degree [because of the maintenance of self-focus - and the self-agenda that is its spontaneous fruit - in their lives].

 

____The deeper one enters into their walk with the Father and His Word the more they will realize that it is ONLY to the degree that one is found trusting in the Father and His Word in their own lives that they will be found trustworthy where others in their sphere of existence are concerned. For it is ONLY a heart that is "wholly given" to God that will be found trustworthy in this final hour - and this, without exception.

 

____When one is faithful to trust God THEN He will entrust them with others - knowing that they will not hurt [harm] His precious children [spiritually or any other way].

 

____Certainly there are many varying degrees of "trust" we must exercise where others are concerned [all with a holy caution I might add] but, again, the bottom line is that it is ONLY the Father and His Word [and, of course, the Holy Spirit] that can be trusted absolutely. People will let us down and disappoint - BUT the Father and His Word NEVER will.

 

        ...."He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will SAY to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!".... Psalm 91:1-16 NASB

 

"FULLY APPLIED"

 

____ ...."Many a man/woman proclaims his/her own loyalty, but who can find a trustworthy man/woman?".... Proverbs 20:6 NASB

 

"Untrustworthy" - not deserving of trust or confidence; not dependable; not reliable;

 

____Anywhere there is pride and/or fear "held to" [willfully maintained through rebellion] in one's life then they will be found to be "untrustworthy" because "self-will" still remains on the throne of their heart to some degree. Again, the only way that one can be found trustworthy is through a heart that is "wholly given" [by faith - and continually] to the Father and His Word in every aspect of their life and ministry. One cannot do anything about another's trustworthiness except, of course, pray for them but they can make sure with every fiber of their being that they are "fully applied" in their own life to being found trustworthy before the Father.

 

A word from the Father:

 

*       One of the main reasons that one is found "untrustworthy" is because they still "maintain" a fear of man within their heart. It is ONLY a perfect [all-consuming] reverence of Me [My Will - Word] that brings one into the place of abiding in "trustworthiness" - both in My sight and in the sight of all those who truly love Me.

 

____...."For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ".... Galatians 1:10 NASB

 

HOW DO WE MAINTAIN A CONTINUAL TRUST IN THE FATHER AND HIS WORD

 

____...."We have the mind of Christ [the Messiah] and do hold the thoughts [feelings and purposes] of His heart".... 1 Corinthians 2:16b The Amplified Translation

 

THEREFORE

 

...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are taking every thought captive [through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB

 

"Tell" - to make known by speech;

 

____How do we maintain a continual trust in the Father and His Word? We, upon EVERY remembrance, "tell" Him we trust Him - regardless of how we may feel in our present circumstances. In reality, He is a true Dad and He longs to fellowship and communicate with each of us in a level of intimacy that few come to know this side of Heaven [again relatively speaking - as He is no respecter of persons and desires each and every one of His precious children to enter into that place of extreme closeness to Him].

 

____In these days, it is very important for every child of God to gain a continually deeper revelation of the importance of trust [in God] and, also, how dangerous it is to actively practice "mistrust" [unbelief] in any of its forms. It is not that we are to trust people who clearly cannot be trusted [although we must pray for them] it is simply to be found trusting the Father and His Word at every turn THEN He can lead us to the people that can be trusted.

 

        ...."Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you".... Matthew 5:44 NASB

 

        ...."When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You".... Psalm 56:3 NASB

 

____ ...."But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I BELIEVED, THEREFORE I SPOKE," we also believe, therefore we also speak".... 2 Corinthians 4:13 NASB

 

WHEN WE EXERCISE "TRUST" IT RELEASES A FLOW OF DIVINE LOVE

 

        ...."O Lord of hosts, how blessed [divinely empowered and prospered] is the man/woman who trusts in You!".... Psalms 84:10-12 NASB

 

____AGAIN, trust is something that is very close to the Heart of the Father. When we are found trusting Him [and the others He would have us put our trust in] it blesses His Heart in a VERY special way - and it plays a key role in the advancement of the Kingdom in the earth, and our part in it.

 

____ When one places their trust in a "ministry" that the Father has led them to by His Spirit - and, thus, they come to "value" [trust in] the words going forth from the aforementioned ministry in their pursuit of the fullness of your Kingdom-destiny, in Christ - it opens the door wide for them to partake of the fullness of all that the Father intended. In this case, the anointing that is on the ministry to help empower those who are truly seeking first the Kingdom to both enter into and fulfill ALL that they were created for, in Christ - from before the foundations of the earth.

 

____When we exercise "trust" it releases a flow of divine Love in our midst - a flow of divine Love that is the very essence of ALL true Kingdom-unity and one accord. In these days, the Father is raising up a people who [in the power and direction of the Holy Spirit] are continually found releasing the "force of trust" [empowered by the trust they have, first, trusted God with] and this is producing an "exponential increase" in not only our relationship with the Father and His Word but, also, with each other in the remnant Church.

 

____The bottom line is that trust is the highest form of honoring another [including honoring the Father and His Word through our trust in Them] - and it is a precious thing in the sight of the Father.

 

A word from the Father:

 

*       It must be clearly understood by each and every one of My precious children that faith is "an act of the will" and trust is "an act of the will". Indeed, the "exercising" of faith and trust are an act of one's will and they will either choose to be found trusting in Me [and in My Word] or they will choose to trust in "flesh and blood" - and their own understanding.

 

        If one has made the "quality decision" in their heart to trust in Me and in My Word THEN they will surely be led by My Spirit to those that can be trusted. On the other hand, if one places flesh and blood before Me [through a mistrust of Me] then they will sure be led to those who, ultimately, will be found untrustworthy by them.

 

        ...."Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths".... Proverbs 3:5-6 The Amplified Translation

 

THINGS ARE ABOUT TO CHANGE RADICALLY ON ALL FRONTS

 

____Things are about to change, radically on all fronts - so it is of the utmost importance for each of us, as those truly seeking first the Kingdom, to continue to position ourselves to receive the revelation necessary to ALWAYS be in the right place, at the right time, doing the right[eous] thing. The Father has a "perfect positioning" in this final hour for all of His children - both individually and corporately - an it will be GLORIOUS!

 

____The things that are now in the "church" will soon be no longer and all that has been spoken of in the Word concerning a "spotless and unblemished" Church and the Kingdom shall now begin to unfold in a greatly accelerated manner. What an exciting [and blessed] time we live in - as true [faithful] children of God!

 

        ...."But seek [aim at and strive after] first of all His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right]".... Matthew 6:33 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, that He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things [that she might be holy and faultless]".... Ephesians 5:25-27 The Amplified Translation

 

 Prayer:

 

____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who trust in You with ALL of our hearts. We proclaim that we are a "trusting people" - a people who know [beyond a shadow of a doubt] that You are trustworthy, and regardless of what things may "look like" or "feel like", at times, in the process of our "maintaining" a steadfast trust in You that You are faithfully watching over Your Word to perform it on our behalf. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

 

____...."I am alert and active, watching over My Word [Will] to perform it".... Jeremiah 1:12b The Amplified Translation

 

TRUE CONFESSION [AFFIRMATION]

 

        ...."I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul will exult in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as [surely as] the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring forth, so [surely] the Lord God will cause rightness and justice and praise to spring forth before all the nations [through the self-fulfilling power of His word]".... Isaiah 61:10-11 The Amplified Translation

 

        Our testimony, as true sons and daughters of God should ALWAY be an affirmation of what God has already DONE not what the Enemy is doing - or has already done. In this way [through our words and actions of faith], we are found glorifying God to the greatest degree, exalting [magnifying] the Holy Name of Jesus [and His "finished work"] to the greatest degree, helping and edifying God's people to the greatest degree and, hurting Satan and his forces [schemes] to the greatest degree. The Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, alone, are worthy of our "full attention".

 

        ...."O magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together".... Psalm 34:3 NASB

 

____...."Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest of our confession".... Hebrews 3:1 NASB

 

a word from the Father on this matter of the importance of true confession [affirmation]

 

* ____Everything that one says [remarks upon] is not their "confession". What one continually "affirms" [maintains as true] through their words [and actions] constitutes [forms] their "confession". However, when one shares "facts" or knowledge of a "situation" [a present circumstance] for prayer THEN, from that point onward, they must be found making an "affirmation" through corresponding words and actions [which equals confession] - for it is in that way that they "affirm" that which they are truly believing in their heart.

 

"Remark" - to say casually, as in making a comment [example: Someone remarked that tomorrow would be a warm day.]; to note; perceive; observe;

 

"Confession" - to acknowledge [in this case to acknowledge that the Father and His Word are the supreme authority over our lives with every word we speak and every action we carry out in correspondence with a revelation of the Father's Word/Will];

 

"Acknowledge" - to admit to be real or true; recognize the existence, truth, or fact of; to show or express recognition or realization of; to recognize the authority, validity, or claims of; to show or express appreciation or gratitude for;

 

"Affirm" - to state or assert positively; maintain as true; to confirm or ratify [in this case, with words that align themselves with the absolute Truth of God's Word]; to express agreement with or commitment to;

 

____...."But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves; [we are] afflicted in every way, BUT not crushed; perplexed, BUT not despairing; persecuted, BUT not forsaken; struck down, BUT not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. For we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So death works in us, BUT life in you".... 2 Corinthians 4:7-12 NASB

 

"But" - yet [in this case, "because of faith in the Word of God];

 

____...."But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I BELIEVED, THEREFORE I SPOKE," we also believe, therefore we also speak [proclaim]".... 2 Corinthians 4:13 NASB

 

        ...."And Jesus answered saying to them, "Have faith in God". [lit. have the faith of God] "Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain [obstacle], 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes [affirms] that what he says is going to happen, it will be [granted] him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe [based on the finished work of the Cross, the Word of God and the Blood Covenant] that you have [already] received them, and they will be [granted] you".... Mark 11:23-24 NASB

 

THE ENEMY IS NOT OMNISCIENT, OMNIPOTENT OR OMNIPRESENT

 

        ...."We have the mind of Christ [the Messiah] and do hold the thoughts [feelings and purposes] of His heart".... 1 Corinthians 2:16b The Amplified Translation

 

____...."And He [the Father] raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus [the Messiah, the Anointed One]".... Ephesians 2:6 The Amplified Translation

 

        Let it be clearly understood that the Enemy is NOT omniscient [nor is he omnipotent or omnipresent] and that the "operation" of both he and his forces is limited to the "lower realm" [the soulish and physical realm] - far below the spiritual positioning found in Ephesians 2:6 which is the place wherein those who walk by [in] the S[s]pirit dwell [abide], spiritually speaking.

 

____The key, then, is our spiritual positioning [Ephesians 2:6] AND the words that do or do not come out of our mouth. When one is spiritually positioned in Christ [seated at the right Hand of the Father in the Heavenly places] - they will seek to only "give voice" to the thoughts and intent of their heart, spiritual thoughts that rise up from the Holy Spirit through their spirit [inner man]. Thus, they are found bringing EVERY thought captive [through proclamation] to a "revelation" of God's Word.

 

____The Enemy may "attempt" to "listen in" and try to counter with his lies BUT as one is faithful to continually resist his fear-filled and lying thoughts by speaking and acting in Faith and Love [obedience] it is certain that his schemes will become "confused" and fall far short of their intended goal - which is to get one to keep their eyes and thoughts "fixed" on the lower realm [the "world"] rather than the Kingdom, and all therein.

 

____...."We walk by faith [revelation], not by sight [sense knowledge, outward circumstances]".... 2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB

 

____...."Therefore, we consider and look not to the things that are seen [the lower reality - that which is real to the five physical senses] but to the things that are unseen [through faith in the higher Reality of God's Word]; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting) [subject to change], but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting [Eternal]".... 2 Corinthians 4:18 The Amplified Translation

 

MANY STILL "GIVE VOICE" TO THE LYING THOUGHTS OF THE EVIL ONE

 

____Unfortunately, many still "give voice" to the lying thoughts that the Evil One runs by them - lying thoughts that come from the "outside" through sense knowledge and perception. And, thus, he continues to "control" their thinking. In other words, he knows what they are "thinking" because of the words that come out of their mouth in fear, unbelief, mistrust, pride etc. - and their actions which are the fruit of one holding to those things.

 

____Therefore, it is of the utmost importance for EVERY child of God to be found bringing EVERY thought captive to a revelation of words that align themselves with the Father's Heart - for in that place the Enemy not only cannot enter or hinder, he also has no capacity to understand the spiritual transactions of the Kingdom [faith, love, forgiveness, righteousness, Wisdom etc.] because there is no capacity with him to understand the absolute Truth of God's Word. All of these things will begin to become VERY evident in this most critical and glorious hour.

 

____...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are taking every thought captive [through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB

 

DEALING WITH THOSE WHO ARE BOUND TO THE PURSUIT OF "SENSE-KNOWLEDGE"

 

        ...."For those who are according to the flesh [sense-knowledge] set their minds on the things of the flesh [senses], but those who are according to the [recreated] spirit, the things of the [Holy] Spirit. For the mind set on the flesh [the mind of the senses] is [under the dominion of spiritual] death, but the mind set on [giving preeminence to] the [recreated] spirit is life and peace [under the dominion of Zoe - which brings peace and rest and quietness], because the mind set on the flesh [senses] is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh [living in the realm of the senses {sense-knowledge}] cannot please God".... Romans 8:5-8 NASB

 

"Sense knowledge" - that which is perceived by what one feels, hears, sees or thinks based on their outward circumstances; that which is perceived through the soul [mind, will, emotions] - apart from the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation];

 

____The most difficult part of the walk of one whose heart is "wholly" given is, without question, dealing with those who are bound to the pursuit of "sense-knowledge" [sense-perception] - for they tend to judge [discern] all things in their "own" understanding - apart from the Holy Spirit. If the one truly seeking first the Kingdom says, "A" then they will say "B". If the one walking in the [s]Spirit says "B" they will say "A". Through all my years I know of nothing so "potentially wearying" [one might say potentially disheartening] as the constant resistance experienced at the hands of those who are walking after "the mind of the flesh" [in fear] - rather than the Mind of Christ. The good news is that in the true spiritual environments that will be established throughout the earth in this final hour, there will be "NO" Enemy in the camp - as that kind of self-seeking and controlling activity will not be able to stand before the outpouring of the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Love] in the midst of all those who are walking in true unity and one accord.

 

____...."In the way of righteousness [right standing and communion with the Father and His Word] is life [Zoë - divine Life, Grace, resurrection power], and in its pathway there is no death [no death in any of its forms [darkness, fear etc.] can remain standing]".... Proverbs 12:28 NASB

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF DILIGENTLY GUARDING OUR HEART [SPIRIT] WITH ALL DILIGENCE

 

        ...."You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages]".... Isaiah 26:3-4 The Amplified Translation

 

____ ...."Be still, [in a certain and steadfast trust] and know that I [am] God".... Psalms 46:10 NASB

 

"equilibrium" - a state of rest or balance [in this case, the place wherein one's spirit and soul {mind, will, emotions} are "garrisoned about" {protected, defended} by the supernatural peace and joy of God, in faith].

 

____No matter how far along one is in their walk, "ungodly behavior" on the part of others - and the various evil spirits behind it [self-righteousness, self-exaltation in any of its forms etc.] - is NEVER a pleasant thing for one to experience and, in light of Spiritual Reality, shouldn't even be happening in the midst of God's people. I thank God that we have the Love of the Father, the Word, the Holy Spirit and the precious Blood to empower us daily to rise above EVERY scheme of the Enemy. Our task is to diligently guard our hearts from ALL "unrighteous intrusion" - with a view to maintaining our "spiritual equilibrium", day in and day out. Another fruit of guarding one's heart with ALL diligence is that it keeps them in a place of sensitivity to the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit abiding within their inner man. In other words, their spirit remains in a place of predominancy [ascendancy] over their soul [mind, will, emotions] and body.

 

"Intrude" - to thrust or bring in without invitation, permission, or welcome [in this case, any attempt by the Enemy [through the unrighteous words and actions of others] to bring us down from our position of being found the righteousness of God, in Christ];

 

____...."But it is from Him [the Father] that you have your life in Christ Jesus, Whom God made our Wisdom from God, [revealed to us a knowledge of the divine plan of salvation previously hidden, manifesting itself as] our Righteousness [thus making us upright and putting us in right standing with God], and our Consecration [making us pure and holy], and our Redemption [providing our ransom from eternal penalty for sin]".... 1 Corinthians 1:30 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."He [the Father] made Him [Jesus] who knew no sin [to be] sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him".... 2 Corinthians 5:21 NASB

 

Words from the Father:

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF "MAGNIFYING" THE FATHER AND HIS WORD

 

* ____Whatever one dwells [focuses] upon will SURELY overtake them. Let it be clearly understood by each and every one of My precious children that, in any given moment, they will either be found "magnifying" Me [and ALL that I am] or the Evil One and his works [lies].

 

"Magnify" - to cause to seem greater or more important; attribute too much importance to [in this case, the lies and actions {works} of the Enemy above the absolute supremacy of God's Word];

 

Latin:"magnificare" - to praise; glorify; extol; esteem greatly;

 

____...."Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith".... Hebrews 12:1-2 NASB

 

____ ...."What is man that You magnify him, and that You are concerned about him".... Job 7:17 NASB

 

____...."I will extol You, my God, O King, and I will bless Your name forever and ever".... Psalm 145:1 NASB

 

____ ...."Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; Let those who love Your salvation say [proclaim] continually, "The LORD be magnified!".... Psalm 40:16 NASB

 

"Proclaim" - to announce or declare;

 

Latin:"proclamare" - to shout aloud [in this case, the Word {Will} of God];

 

        ...."Out of the fullness [the overflow, the superabundance] of the heart the mouth speaks".... Matthew 12:34 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."Death and life are in the power of the tongue".... Proverbs 18:21a NASB

 

"WHAT ONE'S EYES AND EARS ARE FIXED ON WILL DETERMINE WHAT IMAGE IS FORMED IN THEIR HEART"

 

* ____It is a "defiling" practice for one to look upon [hear about], excessively, the "works" [unrighteous deeds] of the Enemy. For to do so, SURELY impedes one's spiritual progress through the defilement of their heart [spirit, inner man]. What one fixes their eyes on will determine what image is formed in their heart [spirit] - without exception!

 

"Defile" - to make impure; to make foul, dirty, or unclean; pollute; taint [in this case, the true image of Jesus Christ - and our true identity in Him];

 

"Excessively" - going beyond the usual, necessary, or proper limit or degree;

 

____...."But seek [aim at and strive after] first of all His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right]".... Matthew 6:33 The Amplified Translation

 

____ ...."Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror [through the continual exercising of a steadfast faith, love and obedience] the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit".... 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 NASB

 

____ ...."Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind [thoughts, intellect] on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God....put on the new man [give the recreated spirit a place of prominence], which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him"....

 Prayer:

 

____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who seek to "magnify You in ALL of our ways. We thank You and praise You that You have made us deeply aware of the importance of our words and maintaing a true confession before You - a true confession that continually affirms the "spiritual reality" of who we are, in Christ. And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis], in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

 

____...."Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such [a word] as is good for edification according to the need [of the moment,] so that it will give[impart] Grace [Life, Love, Truth, Wisdom etc.] to those who hear"....  Ephesians 4:29 NASB

NUGGETS FROM THE INNER CHAMBER

 

* ____To the depth that one "allows" the deeper working of the Word of God and the Holy Spirit in their lives, it is to that degree that they will partake of the reality of true Kingdom-living

 

        ...."And He [Jesus] summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, 'If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me'".... Mark 8:34 NASB

 

* ____God has a very special way of "deleting" that which needs to be deleted in our lives. It is a "revelation" of His Love [and Will/Word] and the precious Blood [which is all -powerful in its supernatural ability to erase things while restoring at the same time] entering into one's heart that totally replaces any previous wrong "mind-sets" [strongholds]. The Enemy spends years [sometimes an entire lifetime] building his strongholds BUT when a child of God exercises "their" will to truly know God [and the perfect liberty that is theirs, in Christ] THEN all of his years of strategies and tactics will begin to "melt" [evaporate] as if they were wax that got too near the sun [Son].

 

        ...."If we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin".... 1 John 1:7 NASB

 

* ____Drawing near to God in this hour is a very good thing. All those who are truly seeking Him are being called into that "quiet place", and it is certain that we all need the impartation of Grace that surely comes - as we enter in to the secret place of His Presence.

 

____...."Draw near to God and He will draw near to you".... James 4:8 NASB

 

* ____The Holy Spirit is definitely "laying the axe" to every root of fear, especially where "relationships" [ministry and otherwise] are concerned - as any area of "mistrust" that has been established by the Enemy in the past only serves to hinder one from entering into an absolute faith and trust in the Father and His Word [Will].

 

        ...."Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths".... Proverbs 3:5-6 The Amplified Translation

 

* ____There will be NO limit to what the Father can [and will] do through a holy [faithful] people in this final hour - especially in the area of divine restoration.

 

____...."If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you".... Matthew 17:20 NASB

 

* ____One who is truly seeking first the Kingdom is never "behind". The Father has a very special way of catching us up in spiritual things. The way of the "world" is natural progression. Our spiritual progress is supernatural - and is not limited by time and space.

 

____...."But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness [to be righteously motivated], and all these things will be added to you".... Matthew 6:33 NASB

 

* ____When one comes under severe attack by the Enemy it is very important for them to begin to "consistently" speak [even if it is under their breath] the Word/Will of God. Even if one just simply begins by reading scriptures out loud [regardless of how oppressed they might feel] they must do it - because the very first step of faith in driving away the Enemy and his tormenting spirits is to resist him by proclaiming the Word of God right in his face. If one if faithful to take the steps in faith to resist him, God's Grace will kick in "fully" - and the peace and joy [which is our strength] will ensue as they continue on in faith, love and obedience.

 

____...."Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you".... James 4:7 NASB

 

        ...."Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things".... Philippians 4:6-8 NASB

 

*       This is the season wherein a "series of suddenlies" will begin to overtake those who have been found faithful and obedient. This will produce a "divine restoration" in their lives - a divine restoration [on every level] that is unparallelled in the history of the Church.

 

        ...."So rejoice, O sons of Zion, and be glad in the LORD your God; For He has given you the early rain for your vindication. And He has poured down for you the rain, the early and latter rain as before. The threshing floors will be full of grain, and the vats will overflow with the new wine and oil. Then I will make up to you for the years that the swarming locust has eaten".... Joel 2:23-25 NASB

 

* ____There is NO fear and there is NO dread when we "know" [have a deep revelation of the spiritual reality in our heart] that we are loved "perfectly" [at ALL times] by the Father.

 

____...."For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind".... 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV

 

        ...."There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown [complete, perfect] love [faith and obedience] turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror!".... 1 John 4:18a The Amplified Translation
