No Business as Usual

Even while in the middle of the wilderness, Israel was on the verge of a new era. Yet, there weren’t any people walking around or gathering groups under a tree to listen to them preach about the new era that was being ushered in and that they should have hope and that they should give themselves wholeheartedly to it and, most certainly, no one had even announced a Countdown to Canaan Conference. Even without the thing being announced in bright lights, the new season was moving in upon them just the same. One factor we must always be aware of that can spawn disillusionment is when the proclaimers of new eras leave us with the assumption that it is going to be a “magic carpet ride”. We will not be able to simply go on about “business as usual” but must look for ways to adjust to what is coming and adjust and make preparations for what we are hoping will be.

Settle For Nothing Less

As the people of God assemble today, may they settle for nothing less than the extraordinary of Heaven in their midst. May they not look to those things known only by religious sentiment. May they lift up their heads and look to where there is transforming power and radical answers that change individuals and grip them with an insatiable vision for the Kingdom of Heaven in the earth.  “Manifest your kingdom realm, and cause your every purpose to be fulfilled on earth, just as it is fulfilled in heaven.” (Matt.6:10, TPT)  (Kingdom Congress Mar.7-9, 2018 Theme: “From Heaven to Earth”)

Let Not Your Heart be Troubled

(Kathy) —The Bible doesn’t say “Let your heart be troubled only occasionally”. It says, “Let not your heart be troubled.” It’s not an option.   “Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]” (Jn.14:27, AMPC)  (KATHY will be speaking at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018 Mar.7-9  Grace International [936-856-2455] just north of Houston.)

Wheat and Tares at War

(Jim Hodges) One of the main points in the parable of the wheat and tares is that the tares are not removed until they mature while mixed in with the wheat.  Attempts to remove the tares from the wheat during growth will destroy the harvest.  So, in history, wheat or sons of the Kingdom grow together simultaneously with the tares or sons of the evil one.  They are occupying the same earth and they are at war because of two different agendas.  That is the basic reason that becoming a son or daughter of God is signing up for conflict.  Peace only comes by winning the conflict, not just tolerating the enemy.  The time for removing the tares is when they fully manifest what they are, like Jesus cast out devils when they manifested.  (Hear Jim Hodges (fmci.org) at Kingdom Congress 2018 March 7-9.)

Under Authority

(Sam Brassfield) — David was under authority; therefore, he had authority. If we are not under authority, we have no authority. All authority outside of the Triune Godhead is delegated authority. David had been given authority by his earthly father Jesse to tend his father’s sheep. David used that authority to slay the enemies that came to devour his father’s flocks. He just used this same premise of authority in regards to his heavenly Father. David knew that when he faced the giant who was in defiance of his heavenly father, that he would be given the power of God to back up the authority he had been given to protect God’s flock called Israel.  (SAM BRASSFIELD will be speaking at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018 March 7-9.

Not Curbside Pickup

It’s going to take loving the Truth (which is a Person—THE Person) to see great and mighty things for which an earth is groaning (Romans 8:17-19). It’s going to take some calling on that Person which requires relationship, not curbside pickup. And relationship takes time, time out of your day. This does not mean you have to set aside hours and hours every day. That is not a bad thing if that’s where you are currently, or a season you are headed into. Other than that, a relationship is all day everyday.   (Fifth excerpt from Melissa Gabler’s article “Call on Him”.) Melissa is speaking and leading worship at Kingdom Congress 2018 – March 7-9.

Heaven to Earth Availability

As the Word of God says, “Everything that can be shaken will be shaken”. For 2,000 years the prayers of the saints have been going up to the throne of God in obedience to the instruction of our Lord when He required His disciples to pray, “Thy Kingdom come.” God Almighty has not been deaf upon His throne. Just like rats scurrying to get out of a collapsing building, the powers and principalities in second heaven are feeling the pressure of Third Heaven coming into the earth (Mt.6:10). They are scurrying about the earth and our nation affecting everything and everyone that will allow it and they are attempting, through willing dupes, to dismantle everything they can. Throughout history, when a retreating army leaves an area, they burn and dismantle everything they can so that their enemy cannot use it to their advantage. We should not, at all, be surprised at the attempts to dismantle the Word of God and the institutions that uphold it and our constitution. Hence, our faith, prayers and unwavering availability must facilitate the coming of heaven into earth.   (“From Heaven to Earth” is the theme of Kingdom Congress 2018.
