“The Lord reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved. Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting. The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O Lord, for ever.” – Psalms 93:1-5
The Church is more to blame for the condition of the world, than the world is to blame for the condition of the Church!!!
If “GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN ME, THAN he that is in the world”, than why don’t we live like it??!
We have allowed the “spirit of error”, unbelief, and the sin-filled world to infiltrate the churches, thereby relinquishing our GOD given authority against it! Today, I’m provoked!! Today, I say, “ENOUGH!!!” Today, I choose to take up the authority and power of GOD within me and do something about it! It’s HIGH TIME that the Church fixes their gaze on their HOLY GOD, and begin to live like HE IS IN US!
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;” – 1 Timothy 2:1
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.” – Titus 2:11-15
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;” – 1 Timothy 4:1-2
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:” – 2 Timothy 1:7-10
We have not received a spirit of fear, but we have received a SPIRIT of POWER, LOVE, and of a SOUND MIND! HE is the HOLY SPIRIT OF TRUTH! HE IS THE POWER BACKING UP THE WORD OF TRUTH, THE WHOLE COUNCIL OF GOD!
So, receive the WORD, believe the WORD, and live the WORD in the POWER AND OPERATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN US! Then we will be transformed into the HOLY BODY we are called to be, operating in unity by the HOLY COMMANDS coming from JESUS CHRIST, who is the HEAD of the Church unto those who seek His face, hear His voice, and are led by His Spirit. Then will OUR HOLY GOD WILL BE GLORIFIED AGAIN, AND MANIFEST HIS GLORY!
“Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.” – Ephesians 1:15-23
