It’s obvious that the world is moving toward darkness and sadly taking some believers with it. But remember that it was God who said true believers are a light to world. Yes, light will destroys darkness and Believers are called “Light”, so keep shinning because God’s people will not only light up world, plus, produce signs, wonders, even producing miracles. Our joy does come from knowing darkness cannot, Nor eliminate God’s lights that are longer lasting. So, if you are a light to world, than you don’t walk into darkness.
Jesus began our Church Age miracles by turning water into wine, healing sick and raising dead. He fed 5,000, plus women and children, plus delivered people from evil. All of these, his Believers will do plus show signs, miracles, and wonders a tools of Saints ministries. Yes, even Jesus talked about the end times we live in and overcoming discouragement. So, take a spiritual stand putting us God’s Word instead what world is trying to sell us. Even Isaiah understood danger when he said that world can cause meekness that reduces spiritual power. Yes, passiveness can come as a trap instead of a victorious spiritual attack by us against the problem. No, today is not the time for a weak mind, action or faith, but kick in spiritual authority.
Think of it this way, almost everything God wants us to do requires faith. Remember all things possible with God, meaning nothing impossible. So how do we develop our courage? Simple, keep God’s Word in our heart encouraging us.
Where should our vision focus? Should it be on new building, increasing our numbers? More believers, warriors, trainers, as His army filling pews focused on where we should be, not where we are or want just feel good. The focus of our vision needs to be toward a good vision backed by a godly leader. The entire church body will begin to sit up straight expecting victory instead of being pew sitters, being mighty warriors of Christ anxious to win. No, Jesus did not come to earth to just fight our battles; he came to show us how power we can fight and win as part of His army called the body of Christ. God’s plan is in motion and recruiting others, so this is called increase.
PROPHETIC WORD Lord gave me few years ago: “Church in last days will be first time church will be what I designed. I will deliver my church from bondage into splendor and honor that will reign in strength. My words shall not fall to the ground for what I say will happen. Hold on and stand, fear not, don’t look at what you see, see only Me and you shall see the power of Almighty God as no one on earth has ever seen. Hold tight to My Word.
NOTE: Greatest joy you will ever experience is a real relationship with God. I dare say tht millions of books have been written on this that subject. Every religion in world has a view on that topic. God intended that we truly experience life with Him and enjoy a real live relationship with Him getting to know His personally. Yes, God’s plan from creation now in process.
