Edifying Conversation to Benefit Others

As the people of God assemble today, may they converse with one another in such a way that each is edified and no carnal subjects or gossiping distract persons from what the Lord might be wanting to say to each one in the assembly.  “But now, put all these things behind you. No more evil temper or furious rage: no more evil thoughts or words about others, no more evil thoughts or words about God, and no more filthy conversation.” (Col.3:8, Phillips)

The Resurrection is a Guarantee

As surely as the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead was a guarantee, just so, the resurrection that is “IN JESUS” is working in believers. The resurrection is “in” JESUS. If He is able to rise from the dead by that resurrection power that is in Him and if He is able to raise us up from the dead, wouldn’t it follow that He is able to raise up in us now those God-given promises and dreams that have become buried under the passing of time and the pressing of unrelenting circumstances?  The religious experts promoting lifeless religion were “greatly disturbed because [the apostles] were teaching the people and proclaiming IN JESUS the resurrection from the dead.” (Acts 4:2, NASB) Those religious spirits were “thoroughly pained” because the truth and reality of the resurrection IN JESUS was the power of redemptive demonstration:  “And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.” (Acts 4:33, KJV; Acts 4:13 “unlearned men” with resurrection power in them) Resurrection power points to the Person of JESUS, not to religious tenets and their officious practitioners.

Unified, Care, Vision

As the people of God assemble today may they become more unified in their connections with one another, their care for one another and their vision for their city.  ”So that there should be no division or discord or lack of adaptation [of the parts of the body to each other], but the members all alike should have a mutual interest in and care for one another.”. (1Cor.12:25, Amp)

Dreaming and Instruction

As the people of God assemble today, may they hear what they need to hear from their Lord and Savior for victory in all aspects of their life in the coming week. May they, throughout the week, know that they are under the eye and care of God Almighty so that they dream the dreams that are instruction from the Lord. (Job 33:15-16) “In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; 16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,”  (DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY 2017  Sept.22-24)

THE Star’s Signs

As the people of God assemble today, may they focus on THE one Star and Sign that points to the present security and future of God’s people. May they see His signs and wonders as they avail themselves to His Holy Spirit’s giftings, so that His redemptive works may be seen among creation to answer creation’s groaning. This Star’s signs and wonders were done in the marketplace, where groaning creation longed for Him.  (Rev.22:16b, NKJV) ”I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”

Suffering Relieved

As the people of God assemble today, may they be mindful of those who have suffered during the storm and flood. May they pray for those who are hurting and those who have lost so much. And may they be thankful for the mercies of the Lord that are new every morning, for great is His faithfulness. ”For He has not despised nor detested the suffering of the afflicted; Nor has He hidden His face from him; But when he cried to Him for help, He listened.” (Ps.22:24, Amp)

Sing Honor and Praise!

As the people of God assemble today, may they sing out of honor, praise and worship to their God who is above all and above every name. May they proclaim to one another and into the atmosphere His greatness that is worthy of undivided worship, praising Him for Who He is, God Most High!  “Sing God a brand-new song! Earth and everyone in it, sing! Sing to God—worship God!” (Ps.96:1-2, Msg)
