No Chain too Great for God to Break

There are certain things we can expect if we have been “eating” things like the gruel of bitterness or disappointment. Such a diet renders one unable to give birth. There is no birthing of the promise of God in an embittered spirit. That which God ChainsBreakingdesires to perform in and through us has no “fertile womb” in which it can be conceived when infected by bitterness. A wounded spirit is more difficult to heal than a broken body. It is more subtle, yet more devastating.  Cf.”A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones (Prov.17:22).”  Fraud, adultery and divisions in organized religion have not together taken a toll on the church to the extent that embittered spirits have. But no matter how devastated you may be, God has prepared deliverance. Before Israel could even come up with a plan of escape, God had a plan in a deliverer called Moses. No prison or chain is too great or too old for God to break (cf.Jer.30:8).

Nourish the Dream

Moses was nourished in his father’s house for three months (Ex.2:1). Anything marked for the purposes of God must be nourished within us and given ability to stand. Giving ability to stand is in the basic meaning of nourish. “By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict (Heb.11:23).” That dream God gives is no ordinary dream. Feed it. Nourish it. The false report may say, “Oh, but it is so skinny and frail, it’s almost dead.” Nourish it. It will come back strong. Someone may say, ”Oh, but there may not even be an ember left because the original fire was built so long ago.” Patiently and persistently stir and feed the fire. It will come to flame again.


Truth Contradicts the Snakes

Protesting is getting louder and nastier but the truth still contradicts those who despise it. The truth will never go away and it will never be compromised. Truth will never be put on the auction block. The longer the representatives of God’s truth stand in “Pharaoh’s court” and speak truth, the greater the number of “snakes” will manifest themselves. But God’s rod in Aaron’s hand swallowed up Pharaoh’s undesirable, intimidating snakes. (Ex.7:8-12 and Matt.10:26) We will see even more and nastier snakes manifest before all this is over. But they must manifest before they are swallowed up in authoritative truth.

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”)

Steady Not to Distract

We can take an equipping insight from the Transfiguration event (Mk.9) and reaction.  When we do see a demonstration of the Power of the Kingdom of God, we need to train ourselves to hold steady through the shock and awe so as not to blurt out unnecessary things to distract or interrupt.  We can train ourselves to wait to hear and perceive God’s intention for the event, as the disciples did in the next moment.  A cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is My beloved Son, listen to Him!” All at once they looked around and saw no one with them anymore except JESUS alone.  Jesus alone and His agenda are ALWAYS the base line, the pivot or the point of Kingdom power; and we hold steady until we hear and understand His agenda.  (The fourth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)

Mouth Hanging Open

Peter then said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three tabernacles, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”  The next verse says that Peter blurted this out without thinking, simply because they were all so stunned by what they were seeing.  I don’t blame Peter for that outburst.  Those three disciples were experiencing Kingdom Power that broke barriers in logic, time and history.  And, by the way, HOW would the disciples  have recognized Moses & Elijah?  There were no history books with photos, no name-tags . . . Perhaps Jesus introduced them . . . and can you picture that? How would you be able to look eye-to-eye with Moses and smile or nod? Or how would you shake Elijah’s hand without your legs falling off? Maybe they weren’t introduced, but they knew them because they were intently eavesdropping, while frozen in a dead stare with their mouths hanging open!  (The third excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)

Power of the Kingdom

Let’s find insight in one of Jesus’ examples of the Power of the Kingdom in Mark 9.  In verse 1, Jesus said: “Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.”  In Mar 9:2, six days later, three of them did see it. Jesus took Peter, James, and John and led them up a high mountain.  His appearance changed from the inside out, right before their eyes, and His garments became radiant laser-white, and Elijah and Moses showed up to talk with Jesus.  Right before their eyes, Jesus was glowing and was transfigured beyond anything humanly possible.  Beyond that, He was suddenly in the company of two prophets from Old Testament history, so the disciples definitely got an impression, realization and a foretaste of POWER!  (The second excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)
