Spiritual Climate Change

July 5, 2015

Operational maturity within the household of faith is no longer an option. For far too long we’ve promulgated a mind-set of being a band of followers, ever-learning and never coming to the knowledge of the truth. The great deception in this mode of thinking is that spiritual maturity is somehow tied to a higher level of doctrinal knowledge. That’s the “one ups-man” approach the Pharisees gave the people. It immobilized them. Jesus came to set the people free from that trap and mobilize them. True spiritual maturity is putting your faith in action, being doers of the word and not hearers only, who deceive themselves (James 1:22). Elijah risked it all to face overwhelming odds arrayed against him in order to confront evil and uphold God’s honor. All it takes is a righteous remnant with the faith and courage to risk everything. The wedding feast is fast approaching, which will distinguish those who will be the chosen from those called. The heroes of faith spoken of in the book of Hebrews were not seduced by their comforts or their quest to maintain their survival. They conformed to the truth spoken of by Jesus that the greatest love (John 15:13) is that evidenced by those willing to give up their lives for God’s honor and for those who would follow them. Some did just that. Some, in facing the crucible, walked into spectacular miracles.

The Secret Things

March 18, 2015

God’s presence triggers secrets or mysteries beyond our natural comprehension that give release to His creativity. Touching His presence sets in motion the unlimited dimension of His glory, as His very nature overflows with the creative. The very process sparks change. As Isaiah was reaching beyond himself and ran into God’s presence, God’s presence unveiled a secret, which Isaiah embraced. The authority to unfold the creative process followed, as Isaiah’s response to his calling released him into becoming a force for change that would reshape everything around him. Isaiah’s response made him an integral part of this process, this progressive rhythm, this pulse in God. For those entering this dimension in God, change will result. For the person walking out a calling, the first thing that will happen will be that the perspective will change. It’s more than just revelation. It begins inwardly before it can be released outwardly. Encountering God’s presence for Isaiah brought the wise reply of: “Woe is me. I am a man of unclean lips among a people of unclean lips.” The response of repentance changes your thinking and begins the process.

The Challenge and Response
O God, do not remain silent and do not be still. For behold, Your enemies make an uproar, and those who hate You have exalted themselves. They make shrewd plans against Your people and conspire together against Your treasured ones. They have said, “Come and let us wipe them out that the name of Israel be remembered no more.” For they have conspired together with one mind; against You they make a covenant. Ps 83:1-5 O my God, make them like the whirling sands. Like fire that burns the forest, so pursue them with Your tempest and terrify them with Your storm. Fill their faces with dishonor, that they may know that You alone, whose name is the LORD, are the Most High over all the earth. Ps 83:13-18 God thunders with His majestic voice, doing great things which we cannot comprehend. Job 37:5 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or power. Col 1:16

Expect God’s Unexpected: Then all the multitude kept silent and listened to Barnabas and Paul declaring how many miracles and wonders God had worked through them among the Gentiles. Then James answered, saying, “Men and brethren, listen to me: Simon has declared how God visited the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His name. With this the words of the prophets agree, as it is written: ‘After this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up; so the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, says the Lord who does all these things.’” Acts 15:12-17
