(DEF: ACTUAL RATHER THAN A CHARADE, TRUE.)
MY CHILDREN, IT IS TIME TO BE “REAL” AND SHOW THE REALITY OF CHRIST IN YOU!! YOU HAVE OPPORTUNITIES ALL AROUND YOU AND AN OBLIGATION TO SHARE MY LOVE AND TRUTH WITH THE WORLD. THIS IS YOUR CALL TO BE FILLED WITH THE FULNESS OF GOD!! THE WORLD KNOWS IF YOUR DECLARATION OF CHRIST COMES FROM A DEEPLY COMMITTED HEART AND LIFE OR A FACADE YOU TAKE ON AND OFF. YOUR LIFE SPEAKS VOLUMES TO THE WORLD ABOUT WHO YOU REALLY ARE APART FROM WHO YOU CLAIM TO BE. “You are manifestly an epistle of Christ …written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart” (2 Corinthians 3:2).
I HAVE OFFERED YOU THE “PRIZE OF THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS”! IF YOU SAY YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD, YOU ARE SAYING CHRIST DWELLS WITHIN YOU AND YOUR LIFE WILL REPRESENT HIS PRESENCE AND TEACHINGS. YOUR WORDS AND ACTIONS WILL BE MONITORED BY THOSE AROUND YOU TO SEE IF YOU MEASURE UP TO WHO YOU CLAIM TO BE. IT IS BY YOUR FRUIT THAT YOU WILL BE JUDGED. “Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin” (Romans 6:6).
YOUR DEVOTION TO CHRIST IS KNOWN BY YOUR OBEDIENCE. “Jesus answered and said to him, ‘If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him’” (John 14:23). EVERY CHILD OF GOD SHOULD DAILY PREPARE HIMSELF TO BRING TO PASS MY PURPOSES FOR HIS LIFE THROUGH PRAYER AND THE STUDY OF MY WORD. ARE YOU CONTINUALLY SEEKING MORE OF ME IN YOUR LIFE? EXAMINE YOURSELVES AND SEE YOURSELF AS I DO! ARE YOU STRIVING FOR THE TRUE RICHES IN CHRIST? DO YOU SEEK THE ANOINTING OF MY SPIRIT ON YOUR WORKS FOR GOD, AND ARE YOU ASKING FOR MY GIFTS AND ABILITIES TO DO MY WORK? “If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen” (1 Peter 4:11).
DO NOT ALLOW THE CONTENT OF YOUR LIFE TO BE DERIVED FROM THE DICTATES OF YOUR FLESH! “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6). BE TOTALLY HONEST WITH YOURSELF. I CANNOT USE OR CONTINUE TO GIFT A LIFE THAT DOES NOT REPRESENT MY HOLINESS OR MY LOVE FOR THE SOULS OF MEN. I AM WHO I AM AND I CHANGE NOT! (MAL. 3:6.) THE HOUR IS LATE, THE TIME IS SHORT, AND I HAVE MUCH WORK FOR YOU TO DO BEFORE MY RETURN. GET “REAL” AND HAVE YOUR LIFE MIRROR MINE. MAKE YOUR WORDS AND ACTIONS GLORIFY MY NAME! YOU ARE CALLED TO “LIFT ME UP SO I CAN DRAW ALL MEN UNTO ME”! GLORIFY ME IN ALL THINGS! I HAVE PLANS FOR YOU AND THOSE PLANS CAN ONLY BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH THE REALITY OF MY LIFE, SPIRIT, AND POWER FLOWING THROUGH YOU TO THE WORLD!
LUKEWARMNESS OR HALF-HEARTEDNESS WILL NOT PRODUCE IN YOU THE SIGNS AND WONDERS THAT WILL “SIGNIFY THE GREATNESS OF MY POWER AND PRESENCE” WITHIN YOU. MY DIVINE ANOINTING WILL DRAW THE ATTENTION OF THE WORLD TO ME AND AFFIRM THAT YOU ARE MY REPRESENTATIVE. “If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him”( John 10:37-38)
MY CHILDREN BEGIN TO PRAY FOR A GREATER INDUEMENT OF POWER. WAIT ON ME UNTIL YOU RECEIVE ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU. THROUGH PRAYER YOU WILL RECEIVE GOD-GIVEN POWER AND AUTHORITY OVER SATAN AND LOOSEN SATAN’S HOLD OVER HIS PRISONERS AND THE BODY OF CHRIST. PRAYER, FAITH, OBEDIENCE, AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF MY WORD WILL BRING POWER AND THE MIRACLES OF CHRIST INTO YOUR LIFE. “And these signs will follow those who believe: in My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover” (Mark 16:17 -18). “And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy” (Acts 2:17-18).
THE TIME HAS COME FOR YOU TO PUT YOUR FAITH IN ACTION BY DOING CHRIST’S WORKS. MAKE YOUR LIFE WORTHY OF THE SON OF GOD AND THEN PRESENT YOUR LIFE TO THE WORLD AS A LIVING TESTIMONY TO THE REALITY OF “CHRIST IN YOU!” SEEK FOR A GREATER INDUEMENT OF POWER TO FINISH THE WORKS OF CHRIST. TO BE TRULY EFFECTIVE, YOU MUST SEEK ME UNTIL YOU HAVE RIVERS OF LIVING WATER FLOWING THROUGH YOU AND THE SIGNS AND GIFTS OF MY SPIRIT BEARING WITNESS TO MY PRESENCE. I HAVE GIFTS AND ABILITIES TO GIVE YOU SO THAT THE PEOPLES OF THE WORLD WILL BEGIN TO FEAR THE LORD AND TURN FROM SIN TO THEIR ONLY SAVIOR. “Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands” (Acts 14:3).
Let us pray: Dear Lord, show me what You want me to do. Increase my burdens and opportunities to serve You and glorify Your name. I will dedicate my life to deeper prayer and lift my voice in thanksgiving for Your goodness and love. Your written and spoken words will be my teacher and the work of Your Spirit within me will be my guide. Thank You for all of Your blessings and gifts. I love You. Increase my love and burden for others. May I fulfill all righteousness. Give me a burden and revelation of the work You have planned for me. May I be fully equipped and overflowing with Your Spirit. Amen.
