“The kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power.”
I see a lot of talk these days… Words here, words there, let’s discuss this, let’s discuss that. But let me ask you this, where is the power? Why are so many “believers” still in bondage? Since when did discussions solve anything? I thought the anointing broke the yoke, my mistake… Where is the power of the Holy Spirit? When did being a pansy become the mark of a son of God? I thought the righteous were as bold as a lion… When did the church of the Almighty become a pity party? When did the saints of God join themselves to unrighteousness? You go from one demon to the next only to end up in greater bondage.
Perhaps I’m being too harsh. Perhaps we need to sit around and sing kumbaya all day and comfort one another’s demons. Maybe if we keep saying “it is finished” people will begin to change. Maybe we should keep pretending like the fruit we’re picking isn’t rotting away… I’ll say this though, just because you know a word doesn’t mean you know the Power.
Where is the power of God on the earth? Where are the Ones who are led by the Spirit of God? Where is the army of the Lord that will consume this earth in the All Consuming Fire? May it all burn to the ground that Light would remain…
I remember a time back when I was in college when I was thinking about the 5 fold ministries (in Ephesians). I thought to myself, “if I could function in any of the 5 ministries which would it be,” to which I replied, “a prophet.” But why a prophet? My reasoning had less to do with the function itself and more to do with my hearts desires… Because I felt like the people that know (and have known) God the best are prophets. I wanted to know God… plain and simple.
I mean, look at the prophets throughout the scriptures. Many times their lives were very misunderstood, but they knew God. They knew His voice. They knew His power. They knew His wonders. They knew His provision. They knew His rest. They knew His might. They knew His wisdom. They KNOW Him… So as I read the scriptures and communed with the lives of these men and women, Moses, Elijah, David, Elisha, Isaiah, Daniel, Mary, etc. (you know who they are), something in me was stirred up, the desire of the eternal KNOWING of the Lord. (This isn’t to say that the other 4 ministries don’t know God as intimately as a prophet, that was just my train of thought at the time.)
Why am I writing about this now? Because for the last year or so I’ve been pondering my heart’s desires and I find that there has been one constant. A desire to YADA the Lord. A desire to know through intimate union. I want what they had, and More. For that is the portion of the children of God, the knowing of their FATHER. That is our Inheritance.
