The God-Cloaked Answer

(Melissa Gabler)—(Melissa) Have you ever had times when a revelatory nugget pops up, then within days you hear the same nugget from other sources? That’s been happening as of late and I’m learning to pay attention to those! Following is one such instance that has been not only ringing in my ear, but answering some of those seemingly unanswerable questions.  While in conversation this was quoted to me from a book, “God hides some things for specific times so that the enemy cannot destroy them.” That stuck with me, and a couple of days later I read a quote from someone else that was expressing the exact same thought! Well, that really hit me between the eyes, especially because these came from trusted sources.  It was an “Are you listening?” moment. 

The God-cloaked answer is not about God withholding an answer because we don’t get it.  This is not about Him being mean or cruel.  He is indeed right the opposite. “It is because of the Lord’s lovingkindness we are not consumed, because His [tender] compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; Great and beyond measure is Your faithfulness.” Lam. 3:22-23 (AMP).  This makes me cry.  Our God is so faithful to sustain us through these battles to our answers.  In fact, His goodness NEVER runs out! This scripture tells us they are NEW EVERY MORNING! There is new strength and grace to be set free right now.  Y’all, He NEVER gave up on plan A which is the John 10:10 abundant life.  We choose to live plan B simply because we don’t have a grasp on His love and true intent for us.


Big Bad Christian Crusher?

There is no weapon in all of hell’s arsenal that is marked “Sure ‘Nuff Christian Killer.” “No weapon forged against you will prevail (Isa.54:17).”  There is no diabolical demon on the lower level of hell behind a great steel and concrete door marked “Big Bad Christian Crusher.” There just simply is no such thing. Indeed he has come to “steal, to kill and to destroy (Jn.10:10)” but he cannot unless we fall for his propaganda and give in to his deception. (Marty Gabler from his book “Sheep Have Short Legs”.)

Power That Brings Victory

Is the best teaching we can give people the one which tells them they can escape their problems or is it the one that shows them God and His Word is their ability to Climbingmountainovercome them? “The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work (1Jn.3:8).” “For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith (1Jn.5:4).” “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full(Jn.10:10).” “They overcame him [the devil] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony (Rev.12:11).” Escaping problems isn’t the answer. The resolve of problems by the power of Almighty God is the answer. The greatest testimony to the name of God is not that He can snatch His puny people out of a menacing mess that is too much for them. The greatest testimony is that His power in their lives has brought them victory over every stronghold and principality in this present earth.

Kingdom of Heaven

Jesus used the term “Kingdom of Heaven” attempting to get people’s focus off things that so readily paint a picture of the impossible. Such terminology as kingdomofheaven“Kingdom of Heaven” shows that it is God’s Kingdom that is in stark contrast to the limitations of earth and its finite mindsets. (Jn.18:36) Jesus said,  “My Kingdom is not of this world”. He just as well could have said, “My Kingdom is not of the mindset of this present age.” Jesus had a far different orientation, a far different point of reference and totally different values that He so longed for people to get connected to so they might live as sons and daughters with abundant life (Jn.10:10). We are praying you discover daily that the Kingdom of Heaven is close to you.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24 hours/day. www.txpraise.com)

What is Plan A?

PlanA(Melissa G.) It’s about time for some good news, and here it is: we are heirs of Plan A! What is Plan A? Plan A is God’s original intent for you personally that is absolutely connected to His original intent for 2016 and beyond. And what is God’s ORIGINAL INTENT? “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]”. (John 10:10, Amp) Abundant life is about His original intent of bringing Heaven to earth through our living what Jesus made accessible.  Here’s the even better news, Plan A was NEVER aborted.  It is still active and accessible!

The Key: Holy Spirit

Golden key in keyholeThe Holy Spirit is the One who has constant communication with heaven which is the seat of God’s authority. The key to man being able to express the Kingdom of God here on earth is the presence of the Holy Spirit. As it has been so well said, the Holy Spirit is the most important Person on earth. Jesus is at the right hand of the Father—at the right hand of majesty on high.  He is there in the presence of God. The presence of God is not static, He is active—constantly active.
