Faith Moves The Hand Of God

I am amazed, sometimes, at how downtrodden (myself include) Christians are.  Exhausted, demoralized, traumatized, we barely holding on. Though we try our best it seems that, no matter what we do, we continue to struggle.  In fact, this is so common some say this is “normal” and just the way God wants it to be. However, as an act of defiance against such demonic oppression in my own life, I say “No!”

Coordination and strength

The strength of any natural body lies in its coordination.  A single finger is only so strong.  However, together, five fingers can hold something tightly. Add to that an arm, an elbow, and a shoulder and now you have something to work with.

The source of our bodies coordination is our head.  Our bodies act as our brain commands to carry out our will.  Olympic athletes, who do amazing things physically, are examples of extreme coordination allowing them to compete at the very limits of human ability.

Multiple sclerosis in Christ’s body

When the body cannot coordinate, we know it is sick.  For instance, the national Multiple sclerosis society states,

“Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.”

This disease often leads to uncoordinated, jerky movements that make it increasingly difficult for the afflicted person to live well.

Christ’s body is ill

The Body of Christ is sick.  We are spastic and uncoordinated.  We suffer as a whole, because individalus among us don’t listen to Christ out head.  Our true strength is never available, because we act independently and work against each other.

We are in need of the Great Healer.  We need to be “cured” of our inability to allow Jesus to control and coordinate our actions. When we do, we shall see such an explosion of strength and effectiveness, t that a nation has been born in a day.

Jesus can heal us

In reality, the Body of Christ has everything it needs to do the work of the ministry.  There is no lack of time, energy, or resources.  More that enough people, in enough places,  can preach the gospel TODAY. There is enough of Jesus in us  to experience the unity of the Spirit TODAY.  I say, reach for it, believe it, and possess it!.

In Peter’s Shadow

God says,

“Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.”

Acts 5:15

When the Holy Spirit was moving in amazing power and demonstration during  the first century church, even when the shadow of the apostle Peter cast itself upon a sick person they would instantly be healed. During that time believers sold lands and houses laying the proceeds at the apostles feet.

We have more than enough

The truth is, if the excess  people have in this world is converted into resources for the kingdom of God, no one would lack.  Divine Love cuases the faithful to function as God intended, providing more than enough for whatever God wants to do.

Divine love it the answer

God’s Divine Love, manifested through and each believer, will almost over night, produce the perfect man of Ephesians.

Paul says,

 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:”

Ephesians 4:13

Knit together by Divine Love

It is the Tabernacle experience, the infilling of Divine Love, that knist Believers together. It is the outpouring of the Love of God that causes every joint to supply the others needs,

“From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.”

Ephesians 6:14

God with us

The Tabernacle experience is God with us. The nature of God is love and only that love will cause us to lay down our earthly desires and fix our eyes upon what is real: The New Heavens and New Earth.  We are holding on so tightly to things that are passing away that we do not allow God to manifest Himself through us.  Moreover, the work of the ministry languishes because we focus on our own pain and insecurity that we fail to hear the instructions of our Great Shepherd that could change everything in our lives for the better in an instant.

Tabernacles is coming

I say to you, by the Spirit of Almighty God, that there is coming a day when the Body of Christ will unite through the shared experience of Tabernacles.  We will become one through a mighty outpouring of God’s love which will cause each joint in the Body of Christ to supply that which the other one needs.  In a moment, everything we have been clutching so tightly will fall from our fatigued hands as we simply allow God to manifest in and through our flesh.  All the control and fear that has been instilled in God’s people will evaporate and the churches will empty as God’s people leave the prisons of their minds and go froth into the world, to the highways and byways, and compel the lost to attend the marriage supper of the Lamb.

Do you feel it?

Change is in the wind just and moisture before a spring rain.  It is coming for we can feel it.  The latter rain is about to bring forth a mighty harvest and abundant increase in the Body of Christ.  Every joint suppies what the other one needs building us up into a perfect man through God’s Divine Love.  Amen.

Turn it up and believe it!
