Taken from my book: “Step into His Presence”, that also uncovers many things unseen by many of today’s Modern Churches call spiritual warfare that wasn’t much of a subject until around the 1990’ , today a major subject. Spiritual warfare was a vital part of Jesus’ ministry He taught, even empowered disciples. I’ve also heard people ask this question: “Why does God want us to worship Him?” So, today my subject concerns the answer Lord gave me.
The question I asked Him had two elements: one relates to God’s purpose for creating humans in first place, and secondly, the importance of worship? The two together takes gives four important essentials found in Genesis chapter one helping give the answer. 1) God’s creations were not an accident. 2) God’s Spirit has never stopped moving. 3) God’s spoken Word created all things. 4) Spirit and Word are keys to our own success. Thus, all answers to God’s desiring our praise becomes much more obvious now.
Now, let’s move to our Church Age with the same two elements concerning Spirit and Word also. At beginning Jesus picked twelve men He trained for spiritual warfare, adding faith and trust to our church age today. We see the same elements operating through Church around the world today: Spirit, Word, Faith, Trust, and aggressive boldness. If we compared this to a baseball game, we would be in last inning, church up to bat, bases loaded with Jesus calling for a home run.
Before Word Lord gave me, let me sum up another example concerning my wife Ann’s experience. It’s a sad time to have so Believers weakened in hope, faith and dormant. It can be discouraging when believers become part-time Christians a couple of hours a week. Especially, when in our generation when their needed to help awaken others spiritual warfare to also save others. True believers have a perpetual calling and spiritual gifts and to help speak the true gospel to lost.
Many churches today need an old fashion Holy Ghost powered revival. There has never been a time in history that communities need Heavenly activity through their church body, then now. Today’s greatest fear should not be its finance, polities, or congregational size, it should be how to restore their spiritual authority, power, signs and wonders operating by enormous Spiritual boldness and prevailing power. True Believers will stand in unity, encouraging and strengthening each other as they build Jesus’ kingdom so He can return. (John 4:23-24). Good news is that Jesus, right now is raising His “Company of Saints” from tired traditions. So, regardless of what our storm looks like now, Jesus is walking with us, so we need to keep focused 2 Corinthians 5:17-19.
JULY 1974 LORD GAVE ME THIS PROPHECY. The Lord explained to me how He would move in His Church during final days. He said when starts to move, he would start manifesting his Spirit through different people, adding others as he went. He said that when he u start to move the Spirit of envy would also start moving. And Christians would be cheated out of their gifts because of their want for the gifts others had God knows what is best for each person, but people are so self-centered it’s hard to use them. God said he has a work for many and if they will have patience he will work thought them. Today’s ministries around world are preaching change is coming, but are missing God’s blessing and Holy Spirit power.
Yes, today there are many people identifying themselves as Christians, yet not sure what it means. Two of easiest thing in a Christian’s life are getting saved and going to heaven. Since we can’ save neither ourselves, nor get ourselves in heaven, Jesus must do that. So, our only hard part is our trip through life between getting saved and going to heaven. This is called our life on earth which prepares us to be qualified for either going up or going down our eternal life ahead.
