Leveled Ground

“What are you, mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of ‘God bless it! God bless it!'”

— Zechariah 4:7 NIV

——————————————————-

Commentary:

Zerubbabel, the leader of the people of Judah, had a great task to perform. After he led the first exiles back from the Babylonian captivity, he was called by God to begin the re-building of the temple in Jerusalem. In the first two years the foundation of the temple was laid, but then work came to a standstill for 17 years because of the disruptive activity of the Samaritan people. Our verse for today is part of a prophetic message Zechariah received from an angel concerning the completion of Zerubbabel’s temple project. The angel’s message still speaks to us today. ——————————————————-

What have you started that seems to be stagnated for years after it began?  Churches always have building finds for the new building they desire to build, but the money it takes is there right away.

Your efforts to serve shall not go un-noticed before the Lord your God.  He rewards them who are diligent and who seek Him for directions and the answer to life’s issues.  So, I know He don’t leave you when you are performing and using the gift He placed in you.

We give up when we see nothing happening.  We don’t realize that it takes time to put power of that magnitude together in the same room.  Let me say it this way.  In order for Ephesians 4:11 to come together to effectively do their job, it takes an extreme amount of anointing to cover the room.  All of them have been anointed to do a speciific task in the service.  To habe all of that power under one roof is almost earth moving, but most definitely life changing when the Spirit of God is involved.

It takes time to make sure that each region of the Body has functioning members of the five-fold ministry gifts, as we have termed it, in the Pentecostal settings.

Yes, one person can have the talent and anointing enough to cover a multiple of gifts and callings, but he/she can only use one at a time.  They cannot walk in both at the same time, but can transfer from one gift to the next as the Spirit moves the scene.

(http://www.fivefoldministrychurches.com/elders-and-fivefold-callings)
Even though what I am saying ultimately is a revelations that I have been studying over my lifespan in the ministry.  Having a multi-ministry calling and anointing to perform various duties that are needed within the local and corporate settings.  The Scripture says your gift will make room for you.  Your gift will come to action as soon as you see the opening and have the permissions to do that task by the Holy Ghost.

I am a worship leader with a Prophetic Psalmist gift.   In other words, I see what and when the music ministry should change with the flowing of the anointing of the man/woman of God who may currently be ministering.  Each person prayed for or Prophisied to mat require the Spirit to move in another fashion, so the Prophetic Is almost must hear and see this in order to go with the flow of the anointed.  Only a few people are aware of this revelation, not many have the knowledge to understand what the Spirit of God has shown those selected to serve in this field how to function under the leadership and strong hand of the Holy Spirit.

Please Be Quiet

But Caleb tried to quiet the people as they stood before Moses. “Let’s go at once to take the land,” he said. “We can certainly conquer it!”

— Numbers 13:30 NLT

==============================

It is the hardest thing to get people to finally be quiet enough to hear what the instructions we being given are.

Most people start complaining before they get the full understanding of what is bieng said to them.  They fly off at the handle, because they didn’t like the way the meeting began.  Others are angry because they have to be in a corporate meeting place surrounded by people they hardly get along with.

Caleb is having to yell above the crowd to allow their leader Moses to speak to the people according what the Lord God commanded him.

I do not like that when someone who is addressing a congregation that is being rude and talking over the speakers words.  I find myself shushing folks so that I can get what is being said for me even if you don’t.

When you have people who are afraid to move forward as a group, that says a lot about that generations stamina and longevity.  When a generation has no true leader they repsect, they die off sooner then later.  This is a Spiritual thing I am sharing with you.  Our Nany Boomers are forced to press a long time because there X generation and millennial generations are too weak to lead such great people.  We need our grand parents today to step up and take charge a little while lomger because we might not get any leaders I  place before it is to late.

Caleb and Joshua are the next successors to take the role of leaders in Israel.  They have a task to reach a particular place and they must take from the enemy what was promised their fore-father Abraham when he left the land of Ur of the Chaldean.

Finally, people will not listen if you do not have your thoughts together.  So, Moses speaking through Aaron because of his speech impediment had to make sure what He said would get across to those who have stubborn spirits and resistant views.

They get quiet enough to hear what the middle aged young man is sharing about the land they are going over to possess.  It flows with milk and honey, it’s resources are in access and abundant.  The clusters are huge.  We can take the cities and towms.  Let’s stand together and pursue this opportunity now.

The people complained and complained, because they did not have faith like that of those who were half their age.   Ma y people will complain because they are older and set with comfort to stay where they have grown accustomed.  They don’t want any more than what they already have.

We cannot leave the family stagnated and double minded.

In My Life.

I would have lost heart, unless I had believed. That I would see the goodness of the LORD.  In the land of the living.

— Psalm 27:13 NKJV

_____________________________________I will remain confident in this, I will see the goodness of the Lord.

This is a testimony we all must hold too in our life.  We cannot be the people who turn on the faith and give up.  To many throw in the towel and go ahead and lay dormant for a long time before they finally leave this place.  

Ministry in you belongs to those you serve, it is not up to you to stop the flow of the Spirit because your tired of dealing with the hardship that comes with walking by faith and not by sight.

What did Christ deal with all that time on hearth that was not recorded?  You can imagine Him having to motivate people, you see it in the Scripture.  Yet, who helped Him restore His inner man to full capacity of use?  

There needs to be people in place who you call on to keep you standing in the place God assigned for you.  It will come to pass if you waot on Him amd put a smile on your face.  

The revolt is happening because the mind has shut down. From being enlightened, or empowered by the Spirit of the Lord.  Our younger generation doesn’t want to live faith like we did, they want excitement and thrill that comes with their love for life and God.

Notice I said Life and God, not God in the for-front.  They are Ok with the pursuit of happiness In life before they give their total life to Him.  Don’t get me wrong they are commmitted, but they just prefer to see God as one who wants them to live and have a good time and believe, we believe that we are designed to please God first,  and on. The real side of truth, we only see that God should get our most and best praise over relative relationships and making money or seeking life’s opportunity as we serve the Lord.

You can’t fault them for thinking this way first, because they have seen their mothers and grandmothers struggle in their faith,  and our younger generation refuses to struggle in that manner.

So we all need this boost of power given to the full body of Christ

Loose Restraints pushes Away Knowledge

Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction.

— Proverbs 29:18 NIV

——————————————————-

Did you get your revealed Word today?  When we get what is being shown to us through Divine Revelation, we live a particular way.  When there is no thoughts deeper then ours running through our brain, we don’t see the importance of anything around us.  We become destructive to everyone and everything.  

Deeper you press, the deeper you can go in the Lord.  He is unlimited and exhaustive.   As deep as the ocean is that we have Get to explore, we can go that deep in the Lord.  God does not have a stopping point when it comes to His knowledge.  You can press into Him further than you want to go.

But, just as the pressure can crush you when you go to deep in the ocean.  The pressure can crush you when you go to deep in Him.

We go deep because we long for more knowledge, more information on how to be blessed of God, and fully know what He has told us we are to do in His name.

Deeper depths and higher heights are in God.  Christ can pass this on to us through His blood.  It is a DNA thing, something built in us deep that caller out to deep.  God calls those in whom He can press to get the information He is giving to the workd.  He calls those who serve to reach the masses, that many can be saved.  So, A.P.B. goes out to many who are called, but only few are picked by the Spirit to spread the news.

My Refuge

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;let me never be put to shame;deliver me in your righteousness. 

P.s. 31:1

============================

Why should we be ashamed to represent the truth?  If we are doing well, will He not reward us?

In fact I know He will give you the desires of your heart, as long as our minds are stayed upon Him.  He is the root of our existence.  We do not have a life without Jesus Christ.  He gave us the hopes of a blessed future.  Tomorrow is not under our control.

God houses our next adventure in His plans.  The blue print of what He is doing is not available to all men.  It is only our Father who sends us on the journey we take.  So, I move into Him and He moves into us.  We all become family through the Forgiving love of our Father, and the Saving Blood of our Savior.  The Holy Spirit is who keeps is all connected.  He breathes constantly in and out of is and we share in this Agape Phileo, and Even intimate love if hearts.

He is our refuge, our abode, and our covering.   If we need something for the journey, all we have to do is make a request.

It is time to go and stay at the Shack with the Triune God and King

Bragging about a future you don’t have.

Don’t brag about tomorrow,

    since you don’t know what the day will bring.
Let someone else praise you, not your own mouth–
    a stranger, not your own lips.

— Proverbs 27:1-2 NLT

÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷

We need to put a screeching halt to our over confidence in our immediate future,  because we do not have that permission to stamp approval of God for tommorrow.

Today was the tomorrow of yesterday.  So, now that we are in our today we can be truly restful for how things worked out yesterday.  Even though tomorrow has not shown up, we can anticipate wth expectancy that the Lord will recover our souls and cause us to awaken to a brand new dawning.

The point is not to set up to much beyond what you have been promised.  That is like living above what you can afford, and then you sit in the middle if your stuff in full complaint about it being to overwhelming.

Yesterday’s issues have been done, today has a whole new set of the vs you need to focus on.  Put it in the prayer request box in Heaven.  God will give you a sufficient amount of blessing to handle your debt and settle your affairs.  Trust the Lord’s supply. 

Tomorrow is in its way as long as God has it planned to do so, and it will be what it will be.  There is nothing we can do about how our day turns out,but we can pray and be full of thanksgiving for what the Lord has planned for us.  He will cause your enemies to be at peace with you.  He will turn a gray sky blue if that’s what you ask of Him.

He will not how ever shuffle the deck for you.  He will not change theevents of the day because you want favorable conditions all the time.  Sometimes we need it to be a challenge to our belief.  Mostly, to make sure that we still hold to strong convictions that ae Godly.

Our days will go well because we trust God to give us directions in it.  If you and I stop trying to drive something that is to big for us to control and get into our car seat and buckle up.  Then we wouldn’t have these disasters that keep happening to us.  Let God do the driving.

The Team

All of you together are the body of Christ. Each one of you is a part of that body.

— I Corinthians 12:27 ERV

####################################

Let’s all put in on the team effort.  There are no star players in our community team.  We have many whose gift makes room for them, but it is not about who they are.  It is about who the Lord is in them.  It is about who God is in you that makes you stand out of the crowd and be heard.  We have all been given a purpose under the sun.  We just need to fit jointly to get our part of the task finished, and if not in that order at least get the materials together to give to your successor.

There are those who hog the light, because they think they habe to take over when it is silent. Some times a quiet moment is what the ccongregation needs to get over the loss of time they spent trying to handle it all themselves and not allow the Lord of Host to take His place over the problem. 

Team also has the sound of meet even the it is spelled meat bawards.  I am seeking the sound as a point for us to be together and meet the needs of the Body of Christ.  Take care to help one another in every way possible, but not to the point your doing their job for them.  A weak vessel that cannotbare it’s on fruit or carry it’s own wine, will eventually be discarded.  There will be no dead leaves on the vine.

Together we stand, and divided we fall.  A family that prays together, stays together.  Support for one another is all we need.  Your dreams are my dreams.  Your failure ultimately are mine as well, because I did not concern myself with your plight. 

The enemy might try to surround us on all sides, but we can defeat the devil by banding together and praying on the somethings and He will be there with us to give us power to tread upon the serpents head.

A warrior all alone, can possible be defeat, unless the Lord is using special circumstances to shake the world.

How Faith Work

How Faith Works.

The amount of belief you apply to something you expect to happen.

Bishop Dr Michael L. Craddock Sr.

That measure of faith that is given to all men.  Is equal, but most have learned to increase it.

Where others have left it alone.

Our faith must exceed the day before.   Because, you have an example now that faith has worked for you yesterday,  so today you add a little bit more until that mountain scratches the ground under the pressure of your pushing it.

Now faith is the conviction concerning those things that are in hope, as if it were these things in action, and the revelation of those things that are unseen;

Hebrews 11:1

It is already done.  

Whatever we ask for in Jesus name is done for us.  Because we are people who believe God can and will keep His promises to all men.

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

Mother Teresa

But you and I have to start standing on what we say we believe.  How can you test something works if you do not use it.

Faith Works because you put it to action based upon your conviction that it will take place.

They said: A spoonful of sugar, helps the medicine go down.

Where is the faith in that?

It is in the fact that you believe what they said it will do, before you open your mouth to take the medicine.

My faith is not in the doctors yelling me I have a condition that needs to be worked on.

My faith is in the Lord who promised to heal my infirmities.  I believe He is a healer, over the medicines that I do take.   I do not have faith in albuterol for asthma, I have faith that there is something more I must do to be healed.  

Follow the plan God gives for healing our bodies.

“So, doubt is the substance of things you do not receive and the evidence it never was on its way in the first place”.

The enemy gave us a measure of doubt.  He did everything accordingly to remove all hope in God that is in us as believers.  We allowed that to take place,  and now we doubt more of the time than we believe.

Your faith is a commodity.  It acquires what you want and need.

Faith is measured to every man.  It means God equally started us out at the same level of faith.  Some increase it more, because they have learned to trust in God to get what they want.

Once He gives you His favor and permission on a thing.

That should increase your belief, your faith, and trust in the Lord.

Faith can be seen, but it must be used in order to work properly.

You can’t just see a thing accomplished and not apply faith to make it work in your favor.

Abraham saw the place where he had to take Isaac.

His faith began, when he told the servants.

Me and the lad will return.

You go into the situation with a strong ending already in mind.

You won’t be motivated to believe inside the problem.

If you don’t believe He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

Why then would He give you what you ask for, when you need faith in Him to get it?

Rom. 1:7

17  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith

If you live your faith, it will work.

If you live your doubt, fear, and frustrations, it will work.

Whatever you apply to you life will either increase or stand still.

Faith longs for increasing.

Doubt backs us away from forward motion.

24  Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.

2 Cor. 1:24

We are not in competition with faith.  Whoever is trying win the most faith awards.  You can’t win at faith, you must endure to the end.  

The race is not given to strong, but to he that endures to the end.

Eph. 9:11

Even when you have losses along the journey.

Endure to the end.  Stay faithful.  In faith are we strong.  Muscles thin out over time, and become feeble.  Faith is lasting strength from the inside, with outward results.

Now that’s how faith works.

What did you hear?

You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven.”

— Matthew 5:43-45 NIV

====================================

What He said is what He wants done.  Christ is not asking you to be sweet towards your enenies, but to love them and pray for those who persecute you.

Even though we seem to get the impression that some of us are unjustly done wrong by others at times.  We must be consistent in personal Spiritual examination to make sure that we are not the ones who instigate another person’s anger towards us.  Let go of what caused grief.  Love your neighbor, and your enemy, because you were at one time considered an enemy of another when they had you all wrong.  

People you get to know and take time  to fellowship with deserve the benefit of doubt, that they are genuine towards you first before you formulate your final judgement against them.

Christ is not about wasting His energy on hating man to the point He changes His commitment towards humanity..  We waste a lot of time being frustrated with those who seem to be our enemies.  We need to walk in love directly from the Word of God, not a side conversation we have only at our places of worship.

No sense in pretended we didn’t hear the Lord’s instructions.  Love all of God’s creation.  We are almost like Peter when God had to show him his prejudice towards the gentle nation.  We can get so covered by the protections of our Lord and forget that the Lord covers more of us than we know.  He even covers those who you might see as one who doesn’t like you.  We all have our issues that we must work through.  The point is we need to go ahead and push through the problem, because it causes stress when your focused on people who do not like you.  

Respect is given first, it is earned firsr, not the other way around.  I know that’s not well received.   We always say, give respect to get it, but you might say.  Thus is different.  Jesus didn’t respect the priest.  That is not all together true.  He went to them first.

God’s plans

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

— Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Suprise, look at God’s plans working out for your good.

God declares, with a Ki he decree, His plans are more prepared than yours.  He knows what you need and how to get you through the roads of life that seem hard and treacherous.   He will not cause you to derail and loose control of your life.  If we leave it alone and let God lead us, we Will be in the green pastures a d still waters more for the rest of our existence. 

Look at how God plans stuff to come through for you.  You have no idea why certain things happen in your life.  I understand that some things you didn’t expect to happen might have caused you undo stress and even some pain to go through it, but you made it through didn’t you?

He knows what He wants your future to look like, and what He wants you to have and possess.  You have to come to grips with the fact that He has the plans, all you can do is build what He told you.

There’s nothing like a building contracter giving the owner the vision of what he/she thinks would work better.  That is not what they are hired to do, that is in the hands of the architect who designs what the visionary has told them.  

God is the architect and visionary.   You and I are the builders.  Simetimes we are the gofers and we collect the itens that will be put together by anither generation, like Solomon for David.  Many others had to carry out the vision of the predecessors.   Yet, the material was there to work with.  What must be recalled, is that we ha e to be about collecti g those ite.s we have been instricted to do so.  There is no time to stand and marvel at a  work that might be in the beginning stages. 

Like young ministries that are 10 to 20 years in the making and havent reached a full potential as of yet.

Gods plans give you a future.   Your plans do wjat for you down the line. Help you retire well, or, mabe not?
