God is calling his church back to their first love, Jesus. We have fallen asleep and have allowed the enemy to trespass on ground that does not belong to him and because we have not taken the time to know who we are in Christ, we live like the world, with the same problems as the world and the same struggles. Our lives are supposed to be a witness to this lost and dying world, yet there is no difference between someone who is saved and someone who is lost. If you stopped and thought about that, it should shake you awake!
What breaks my heart is hearing my brothers and sisters in the Lord begging God to do something. God has done everything He's going to do. He's already done it! Jesus hung on the cross and said, "It is finished"
Jesus rose victorious...and He gave His church...you...the keys of the kingdom of heaven...power and authority. Satan has no power or authority just the ability to deceive.
Mat 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Mat 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Mat 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven...what is the will of heaven? Is there divorce in heaven? Is there sickness and disease in heaven? Is there depression, discouragement, anxieties, frustrations, etc in heaven?
Heaven is righteousness, peace and joy.
The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
If joy is 1/3 part of heaven, then why not rejoice in the midst of your circumstances? When God said, light be...do you realize that 'light' LAUGHED darkness away?? God is not heavy hearted because of your circumstances. God's not hurting because of what we do, He's hurting because we have not recognized who we are in Christ. There is freedom in Christ, do you not know that? There is joy, peace in Christ? That's who you are supposed to be...
Righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost!!! The kingdom of God is within you! Righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
You are the righteousness of God in Christ. Do you have peace about your situation that passes all understanding? Then you have not cast your cares upon the Lord in prayers and supplications and with THANKSGIVING...letting your requests (a thing asked, petition) be made known unto God and the peace of God that passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. So if you have peace, then you should have joy evident in your life. Joy unspeakable and full of glory!
You should be rejoicing for the victory is yours. Begin to laugh at your situation...laugh the devil out of your situation.
Take your authority in the name of Jesus and tell Satan to take his minions and GET OUT OF MY MARRIAGE! Then speak reconciliation and restoration into your marriage. Speak life and rejoice (yes, faith is now).
Why not rejoice?! God hears your prayers, He knows your need, but is there sincere praising God publically!
God, you are awesome, there is none like you. Who painted the heavens, who makes the clouds that fly across the sky, who brings the rain down to water the earth and raindrops that look like diamonds that shine in the rays of the sun. The birds float in the air currents. How glorious you are! Who is like unto You?! Who can compare to You?! Glory! You ordained marriage to be blessed...thank you that my marriage is blessed beyond measure (why say something you don't see? I say to you, why not, it's faith speaking)
God made us victorious but we speak words of defeat? Why?
The children of Israel marched around Jericho 6 times in silence. Why silence? So they would not be speaking words of doubt and unbelief and lose the victory that was theirs. On the seventh day the praisers and worshippers along with the horn blowers went before the rest of the people. Do you ever wonder why? God told them what was going to happen...were they going to believe Him? They went before because the victory was theirs already and at the appointed time, they shouted and the walls fell!
Have you declared and decreed your marriage was going to live and not die and declare the works of the Lord? Have you taken the authority that is yours in Christ Jesus and told satan to GET OUT of my marriage! Marriage is ordained of God...He hates divorce. Have you spoken that your wife or husband is a godly husband/wife who loves his/her Lord with all their heart, mind and soul...that they think of Him the first thing in the morning, that their heart is towards God and His Christ by Holy Spirit. HalleluYah!
All I ask is that you find out WHO you are in Christ. You do that by returning to your first love, Jesus. As you grow in the knowledge of the love of God and what Jesus has done for you, the word getting in you, as you die to 'self,' Holy Spirit will begin conform you to the image of Christ and this change will become evident in the way you speak, think and do things...whatsoever you do in word or deed, do all to the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to the God and Father by Him.
Thank you Papa, for my amazing, awesome brothers and sisters in the Lord. Thank you that you have called them to a higher place of praise to a higher standard than the world. Thank you that You have given us keys to the kingdom and power and authority in the name of Jesus. Thank you that they are more than conquerors through Christ, which strengthens them. Thank you that they are triumphant in Christ. Thank you that they are sealed with Holy Spirit and Holy Spirit is their teacher, counselor comforter, helper. Thank you for blessing us with every spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ and thank you that we are able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us (get that last part...according to the power that works in us. In order to have that power, you have to have the knowledge of who you are in Christ, knowledge is power). In the name of Jesus, I speak to every marriage on this site. I release the goodness and mercy of God and His healing power and presence to begin restoration and reconciliation in marraiges as husbands and wives gain an understanding of their identity in Christ for a marriage that is Christ centered. In the name of Jesus I command Satan GET OUT! AND STAY OUT! Holy Spirit come and begin restoration and reconciliation of every marriage as husbands and wives start to acknowledge every good thing in them in Christ Jesus. in the name of Jesus...amen
