STRONGEST MINISTRY ON EARTH IS SITTING ON PEWS: Today Christians around the world have the greatest challenge in history. Today’s Christians has an opportunity to make King David’s starting army to actually look good. Like David’s army the Christian army could be God’s greatest fighting force ever. This great opportunity facing modern Christians has the greatest challenge for the greatest victory man has ever witnessed. The questions are, do they know it? As King David’s army had to learn to unite, the body of Christ worldwide must also learn to unite. Not as just one large group but many groups working together with one purpose, God’s strategy. Yes, without doubt the big challenge is the division of the church worldwide. Jesus said that: “every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand”, (Matt 12:25-26).
Jesus didn’t create his army to fight Satan because Jesus already beat him. The Church’s job is to increase His body by winning multitudes of people to the Lord. Yes, Jesus is right now in process of raising his army of over comers around the world that will unite as his end time army covering earth. I also remember a time in my own life while in the army. I was assigned to a position where I could not leave even if there was an enemy attack. I would stay in position to give the rest enough time to get out of danger. In others words we could not give up one step of ground to the enemy as long as possible. Obviously, it didn’t happen because I’m still here. The same is with Jesus, he allows us to be in positions we feel we cannot handle. If we trust Jesus we will always come out ahead. It’s even possible we may come through better than before we entered what we thought was unbeatable. The body of Christ was created to succeed and accomplish Jesus’ plan. His plan calls for all Christians to be a vital part of his successful plan. Without Jesus’ body of believers being the entire church body with many parts, the churches power and authority has little power and few miracles. This creates a major reason for a lack of spiritual accomplishment through the Church today. This also means the major asset for a strong Christian body is the relationship of the body parts. Otherwise Jesus church is surgically separated. So now it’s time to take the shackles off our Churches and declare we are moving into total victory for Jesus. No, it is not time to give up and hide like the world is trying to do. Just take a look at the worlds governments today. Christians need to remember that God has given us the plan that He created, has already won.
Jesus showed his authority over the natural and spiritual realm telling us we have authority with the natural and spiritual also. The key is our faith and knowledge of Jesus’ work on earth. He is our example on how to use our spiritual calling with our natural life. Spiritual results only happen when faith is in tack and we are on course. There is no place for just hoping. The really interesting part of the history of God’s people is that all of the great things accomplished when they were true to God. They are actually the shadow of power and authority in Jesus’ church in these last days. Our major key, as the church body, is our walking in the same glory as Jesus and his same spiritual ministry. The full ministry of Jesus’ power and authority is in every spirit filled born again believer. Jesus’ commandment to use power and authority is to destroy the works of evil: “For this purpose Jesus was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil”, (1 John 3::8).
Vision the Lord Gave Me November 9, 2003 I saw two very large, beautiful, but strong looking doors. They both opened at once and I could see into a very, very large and massive, yet beautiful room. I immediately knew it was some type of a throne room. As I looked into the room and across the massive floor toward the far side of the room, I saw a great throne chair and sitting on the throne chair I immediately knew was the King of Kings. The room, the walls, the floor, the throne chair and robes and crown of the King was like nothing I had ever seen, although it all looked very familiar. Then the King looked directly at me and I could see His face, although I could not see His face and He looked at me with a look like, “I want them to come in, the door is open”. I looked around to see who He was referring to that He wanted to come into the room and I saw a large number of people. Without Him saying anything I knew it was the Church on earth. I also saw people I knew standing in the front row of people. Although the two large doors were wide open, with nothing standing in the way, plus the large massive room was empty, but plenty large enough to hold everyone. In fact, if all the people were to enter at once they would look like a very small group in such a large room. The floor space was extremely massive, yet it was a room with four walls, a floor and ceiling. I stood and watched and no one was moving toward the open doors, but just standing and looking in. Then the King spoke to me saying, “Until they enter through the open doors they will only see the promises. If My Church will step through those doors coming into my presence they will be healed, see miracles ad many wonders.” I asked the Lord what was the finish of vision? The Lord answered, “Tell them to come in and experience my glory”.
Apostle Paul perceived the fullness of time we live in as an end-time partnership of God and Saints. Jesus’ church is about to release most spectacular execution of God’s power ever. God’s plan is not to improve us; it is to remove us from the curse so He can love through us reaching others.
