The Awakening

I received a message from a friend yesterday that talked about a spiritual awakening, and this morning as I sat in meditation, the Lord dropped Ephesians 2 into my spirit. I believe God has something powerfull that He wants to say to someone, so I’m going to break it up as He leads, and through this passage, I believe He’s going to awaken some dead places, so I’m going to just post it, so that you can read it, and allow God to speak to you…..

  • And you He made alive 
  • who were dead in trespasses and sins..
  • which you once walked according to the course of this world..
  • according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who NOW works in the sons of disobedience…
  • among whom WE ALL once conducted ourselves in the lusts of the flesh…
  • fulfilling the desires of the flesh, and of the mind…
  • and were by nature children of wrath, just as others….

BUT GOD! HALLELUJAH! 

  • But God…
  • who is rich in mercy…
  • because of His great love with which He loved us…
  • even when we were dead in our trespasses…
  • He made us ALIVE TOGETHER WITH CHRIST …
  • (by grace you have been saved)…
  • and raised us up together…
  • and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…
  • So that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus…

HAVE YOU BEEN AWAKENED or ARE YOU STILL DEAD….

An Inevitable Victory……..

 

One MOMENT with God can change the course of our lives forever. God will use that foundational moment to set us on a course where we can truly have life and have it MORE abundantly..

Q. What’s that moment?

A. It’s that moment where we begin to listen for the voice of God and seek to align with His word and will. BELOVED, this is the step that God uses to pack our bags with power, patience, peace and perseverance! This is the step that God uses to set us on a collision course with VICTORY: His destiny and His purpose, for our lives….

Victory is INEVITABLE, for the believer “in Christ Jesus”, who not only puts their ABSOLUTE trust in God, but SEEKS to obey the voice and commands of God at ALL COSTS…

For far too long, we’ve straddled the fence. For far too long, we’ve complained and compromised. For far too long, we’ve made excuse after excuse. For far too long, we’ve done what we wanted to do and when we wanted to do it. BELOVED, God is calling us to a place of trust and obedience unto Him, His word and His will..

  • Calamity is coming…
  • A crisis is rising..
  • A famine is coming..

God never intended for us to look to the world’s systems and rely upon the government, He wanted us to look to and rely upon Him…

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart…Proverbs 3:5

My prayer is that there be a YES in our spirit, when we hear the call of God. My prayer is that there be a surrender in our soul, when we feel the tug of God on our hearts..

“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land…2 Chronicles 7:14

“Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches…Revelation 3:22

 

Jesus is fully aware of your storm…

Surviving storm season……..

“Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him. 24 And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep. 25 Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” 26 But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. 27 So the men marveled, saying, “Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?”…..Matthew 8:23-27

To the believer, storms aren’t uncommon, but they may be uncomfortable….

In Matthew 8 we see the disciples following Jesus into a boat. As they rowed out to sea with Jesus, the bible says that SUDDENLY A GREAT TEMPEST AROSE. Beloved, this wasn’t just a gentle breeze, the boat was literally being covered up by the waves, but Jesus was asleep…

  • Somebody reading this message is in the midst of a storm…
  • Somebody’s storm didn’t show up on the doppler radar, it just arose SUDDENLY…
  • Somebody found themselves in a storm just like the disciples, you were following Jesus….
  • Somebody is feeling like just like the disciples, that their storm is going to take you out…
  • Somebody feels like Jesus is asleep, while you’re in the storm of your life..
  • Somebody is responding to their storm just like the disciples did, Lord, save me, I’m perishing…

Let’s look at what this passage reveals about the disciples, which let us know why they responded the way that they did…

“So the men marveled, saying, “Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?…Matthew 8:27

  • Even though they followed Jesus into the boat, they still didn’t know who He really was, because they said, “Who can this be…
  • Even though they followed Jesus into the boat, and even though they’d seen Him perform miracles before, they still didn’t know that He was omnipotent and that He had ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY over the storms…”that even the winds and the sea obey Him..

Somebody reading this message needs a reminder RIGHT NOW:

  • Make sure you don’t just “know of Jesus”, make sure you “know Jesus”..
  • Jesus isn’t asleep….
  • Jesus is fully aware of your storm…
  • Storms don’t come to take us out, we face them like an eagle and God uses them to take us higher…
  • Jesus is still omnipotent and has ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY over every storm you face and may be facing…

Soooooo, whatever you’re facing and dealing with, know that “in Christ” it serves a purpose…You are in Christ, RIGHT? You are following Jesus, RIGHT? Well if that’s true, know that as long you keep seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, that EVERYTHING will be ALRIGHT!

If you’re not “In Christ” then we need to have further dialogue, so send me a message or comment…

A Living Bible to a dying world…

  • Some may never go to church, but they can still learn about Jesus…
  • Some may never sit down for a sermon, but they can still learn about Jesus…
  • Some may even say, I don’t believe in someone I can’t see…

Some may ask, Well, how can this be?

  • When Jesus lives in our heart’s, people see and sense Him in us…
  • When we live our lives according to His word, our lives become a Living Bible, the word alive before them…
  • When Jesus lives in our heart’s, His words flow from our lips…
  • When Jesus lives in our heart’s, we become His hands and feet, and He impacts the world around us….
  • When Jesus lives in our heart’s, the invisible becomes visible, and the unbelievable becomes believable…

When we seek God and to live according to His word, God enables us to be a LIVING BIBLE to a dying world!
