Today, all around the world, millions are celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, our King and Messiah, JESUS.
As we reflect on the birth of Jesus, and what that represents, our hearts should be full of gratitude, awe and love for Him. As Christians, we should have an ever increasing desire to know HIM more and more. Our very lives and souls are dependent on His great love for us. Those of us who know HIM have that peaceful assurance of knowing this knowledge as fact. Thank you Lord!
Jesus was literally heaven sent to earth. While he was here, He showed us how to live, how to act, how to love, how to speak, how to take authority and have power over the enemy to cast out demons, how to do miracles, how to heal the sick, how to raise the dead, how to subdue storms and take dominion. As Christians this should be the normal for us.
THESE ARE THE WORDS OF JESUS
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.
12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
It is my strong belief that those who are truly hungering and thirsting after God will live like this! As the new wave of His spirit begins to move in our lives - this will be our new normal. God is about to do something new in the world that has never been seen. And WE get to be a part of it! Are you ready?
Prepare yourselves for a new wave of the spirit that will soon be upon us. It will be glorious!
18 “Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old, BEHOLD I WILL DO A NEW THING, NOW IT SHALL SPRING FORTH; SHALL YOU NOT KNOW IT? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.
20 The beast of the field will honor Me, The jackals and the ostriches, Because I give waters in the wilderness And rivers in the desert, To give drink to My people, My chosen.
21 THESE PEOPLE I HAVE FORMED FOR MYSELF; THEY SHALL DECLARE MY PRAISE.
26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,
27 that He might present her to Himself A GLORIOUS CHURCH, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
Another thing Jesus taught us, was how to pray. Many of you know the Lord's Prayer by heart - But do you know the depth of it as a reality?
THE POWER PRAYER
9 In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
YOUR WORSHIP BRINGS HIS PRESENCE
10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.
HIS KINGDOM IS MEANT TO BE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN, PRAY FOR IT TO MANIFEST IN YOU
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
SEEK AND LOOK FOR HIS WORD SPOKEN TO YOU DAILY IN YOUR LIFE AN SCRIPTURE
12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.
LET GO OF ALL HATRED, RESENTMENTS, BITTERNESS, AND CHOOSE TO FORGIVE
13 And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
TRUST HIM TO DELIVER YOU FROM ALL DECEPTION. TRUST THAT HIS VOICE IS THE ONLY ONE YOU WILL FOLLOW. GIVE HIM ALL THE GLORY, NEVER TAKE ANY FOR YOURSELF.
May it be so, Lord JESUS. I know I must fully give myself to you. I set my heart to know You and seek You alone. I choose to prepare myself for this mighty move of God. I want to be fully immersed in YOUR GLORY. I look, watching expectantly for this to manifest in my life.
