Anticipation is Key

What Jesus was attempting to communicate after going down from the Mount of Transfiguration is: “The things I’ve done were not just for historical records, they’re your calling, the template for your mandate and your future.  I’m not here to provide you a fleeting encounter with a super-Hero!  I’m here to inaugurate the sonship of powerful, effectual sons! When . . . are . . . you . . . gonna . . . get it?” An Equipping insight at this point is that Practice and Training to Anticipate the Power of the Kingdom of God is a major KEY for taking care of Father’s business on earth in our lifetime.  (Seventh excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)

Weapons Formed Against You

Don’t you just dread those times in life when it seems that every step you take is uphill? May the Lord grant that seasons of weariness and relentless opposition over your life break and dissipate like the morning mist.  (Isa.54:17, Amp)  “But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, TRIUMPH OVER OPPOSITION] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.”  We are praying you discover daily that absolutely no weapon formed against you is prospering.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)

Biography or Manual?

When they came down from the mountain transfiguration experience, they found the other disciples with a crowd gathering round them.  Jesus asked what was going on.  A man answered that he’d brought his son who was possessed with a spirit which makes him mute and seizes him and slams him to the ground and causes him to foam at the mouth and grind his teeth and stiffen out.  He added,  “Your disciples couldn’t cast it out.”  Then Jesus said:  “What a generation! No sense of God!  How many times do I have to go over these things? How much longer do I have to put up with this? Bring the boy to me,” (Mark 9:19).  The crowd probably went silent, cringing and blinking and backing away since Jesus was obviously irritated, but listen to what He was saying, “You’re acting like all the power I’ve been demonstrating is just for a BIOGRAPHY instead of a MANUAL, like it’s just about MY performance instead of YOUR training!  You’re treating all this like an OPTION when it is an ESSENTIAL.  Remember the man I told you about who was given one talent and he thought he had the OPTION of ignoring the Master’s priorities and burying his potential? That didn’t work out well, remember. Jesus wanted them to anticipate, to see ahead of time they were to be sons.  (Sixth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)

Lifting Eyes Away From Present Circumstances

As the people of God assemble today, may they look to the hills from whence comes their help. May they look beyond the present limitations they struggle against and look to the focal point of Almighty God. May they look to Him Who sits on the throne and unto the Lamb.  ”I will lift up my eyes to the hills [of Jerusalem]—From where shall my help come?  2  My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” (Ps.121:1-2, Amp)

Retaining Essential Facts

May the Lord help you to pay attention to information, measurements and amounts. And may you recall the correct information as needed so that you save time, money, effort and materials. May you retain essential facts and complete your tasks with efficiency so that there be no loss.  (Ps.119:37a, GNT)  ”Keep me from paying attention to what is worthless…”

Intent and Purpose

When we do see a demonstration of the Power of the Kingdom of God, we need to train ourselves to hold steady. The point is to know God’s intent and purpose for the visit. The purpose of God for the disciples was evidently for them to get a realization of unlimited Power, a foretaste of the Power of sons interacting with the spirit realm. God’s intent in the actual conversation between Jesus and the prophets on the Mount of Transfiguration was not revealed for us, but the interaction was an impacting experience. (Fifth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)

Do You Have an Unshakeable Foundation?

There are many belief systems that are vying for your attention. Perhaps, it is best put like this: there are many belief systems vying for your soul. Have you ever found yourself asking, “Am I walking in the way that is right? Am I walking in the straight and narrow path?” May your feet be set firmly upon the never-failing Word of Almighty God. May you go into the days ahead with the knowledge and assurance that you have an unshakeable foundation to stand on no matter what you face in coming days.  (2Thess.3:3, Amp)  “Yet the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen [you] and set you on a firm foundation and guard you from the evil [one].”  We are praying you discover daily that your feet are on the firm foundation of God’s Word.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.) www.txpraise.com
