(Melissa Gabler)— 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. I began meditating on God hiding something for a specific time, and it felt like this statement began filling cracks in my understanding. If God cloaks something for a time, it is not only to hide it from the devil and his destructive minions, but it is also to hide it from our own self sabotage. Yes, the devil and self-sabotage are two different things. However, the devil LOVES stoking the flames of self sabotage! All we have to do is let our fears and concerns fall out of our mouths like kindling for the enemy’s threatening bonfire. So many times we make the devil’s job so easy.

We can expect and decree a major restraining of violence, crime and other problems within our cities. Jesus had dominion over spirits, all manner of diseases and even over the elements of nature and weather. But we must also realize that strife and contention within churches and among the citywide church will not accommodate the Spirit in power which brings extraordinary results—the trampling of the enemy. Jezebel, Absalom and Korah must go. Even the days of false brethren are numbered. (Gal.2:4)(Fourth excerpt from Marty’s article “The New Era and the Church Trampling”)

As the people of God assemble today may they hear the Word of God that is a lamp to their feet and see the light of the Lord God that illumines their path and receive prosperity, safety, comfort and life itself. May their sorrowful spirit be revived and comforted and may God guide their way so that they avoid snares that have been set for them. ”God, all at once you turned on a floodlight for me! You are the revelation-light in my darkness, and in your brightness I can see the path ahead.” (Ps.18:28, TPT)
(Kathy Gabler)—Eventually, I came to a fuller understanding of biblical repentance meaning “to consider things differently and change your thinking”. I came to understand it to be “reconsidering for the purpose of aligning your thoughts with God’s”. As the process of repentance opened my understanding, even the phrase “the Kingdom of Heaven ” came to more meaning. I discovered that the Kingdom of Heaven was not a place with God that we can only reach after death, but that the Bible concept of the Kingdom of Heaven is His authority, power, order and ruling presence everywhere, at all times, both in eternity and the now. According to Psalm 145, His Kingdom always has been and always will be. Another major turn in my understanding then was that when Jesus said “the kingdom of heaven is at hand,” it is a major contradiction to think He meant that it is almost time to leave the earth to go to another place when He was actually saying the authority and power of God is within reach on earth! That made me realize that when Jesus healed some people, He said, “The Kingdom has come upon you.” He had a grasp on God’s order in Heaven and was pulling it into earth to heal.
The hour is coming when the glory and power of God is going to be demonstrated in a company of people. “There will be a trickle, then it will begin to grow and then there will be a tipping point.”(1S.G.) God is a mighty God. “You shall not dread them, for the Lord your God is among you, a mighty and terrible God.” (Deut.7:21, Amp) The word “mighty” is associated with dominion. This new era is about believers reconnecting with the right to rule. “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.” (Eph.6:10) The spirit of might is going to become part and parcel of our weaponry and tactics. The church will have strength to overcome any enemy. “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over ALL the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Lk.10:19) This power and might and strength have been held by God for the church when there would be a tipping point at which He could release it in great measure. We have only seen a trickling of it to this point. When we realize that we are in an era that the church has never operated in before, we can avail ourselves and position ourselves for the Holy Spirit to come upon us in power that has been reserved for this time in history.
(Melissa Gabler) — What a great, great year to be alive! We GET to not only see the shift, we get to BE the shift. Yes, the glory of God is going to be not only seen, but known. And it’s not because things just got that bad, it’s because things and people (this includes you) are now in place for undeniable God elements. Get ready.
The era of half-hearted church-maintaining, while sneaking peeks toward the sky hoping for an escape, is dying away. Do not think for one minute that it is not also the heart-felt wish of the powers of hell and the spirit of this age that the church might go someplace else, because the wisdom of God and the redemptive power of His Christ are being manifest through His church and the Kingdom of God is advancing in the earth in spite of the best-effort opposition of the kingdom of darkness. We are in a new era where there is hope for the future and there is determination of sons to be manifest as groan-stoppers (Rom.8:19, 22). In Jn.20:21 Jesus told His disciples that He was sending them even as the Father had sent Him. Then, we have record of the extraordinary results of that authoritative sending throughout the Book of Acts. (Second excerpt from Marty’s article “The New Era and the Church Trampling”)
