WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE


I RECEIVED AN EMAIL FROM A FRIEND WHO WANTED TO SHARE WITH ME A RHEMA WORD FROM GOD REGARDING THIS SCRIPTURE. HE WROTE “THIS IS REALLY GETTING TO ME. I HAVE BEEN READING THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN LATELY AND THE WORDS THAT GOD SPOKE PARTICULARLY IN VERSE 5 AND 6 ARE REALLY MAKING ME THINK.”
I EMAILED HIM BACK AND ASKED “WHAT DO YOU THINK HE IS SAYING? “ HE DIDN’T QUITE UNDERSTAND ALL THAT THE LORD WAS REVEALING TO HIM, UNTIL TODAY. AS THE LORD BEGAN TO SHARE THIS REVELATION WITH HIM, HE REPENTED BEFORE GOD, ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS FOR NOT DOING ALL HE COULD IN THE KINGDOM. THE LORD RESPONDED IN A LOVING WAY; NO NEED TO WORRY, JUST GO FORWARD IN MY NAME. (NOT THE EXACT WORDS, BUT THIS IS HOW I RECEIVED IT)
AND AS WE BEGAN TO TALK, WE REALIZED THAT THE LORD IS MOVING IN A MIGHTY WAY FOR HIS PEOPLE. THE LORD IS CALLING US TO HIGHER PLACE. THIS IS A TIME OF AWAKENING.



IN THE BOOK OF ISAIAH, THE WORD OF THE LORD CAME, SAYING: “ARISE, SHINE, FOR YOUR LIGHT HAS COME. AND THE GLORY OF THE LORD RISES UPON YOU. DARKNESS IS OVER THE EARTH, AND THICK DARKNESS IS OVER THE PEOPLES, BUT THE LORD RISES UPON YOU AND HIS GLORY APPEARS OVER YOU. NATIONS WILL COME TO YOUR LIGHT AND KINGS TO THE BRIGHTNESS OF YOUR DAWN.”
THOUGH THE STATE OF AFFAIRS IN THE WORLD MAY APPEAR BLEAK, THE PEOPLE OF GOD WILL “ARISE AND SHINE.”
JUST WATCHING THE EVENING NEWS SHOULD HELP US TO COMPREHEND THAT MANKIND IS FACING COMPLEXITIES IN MONUMENTAL PROPORTIONS. CIRCUMSTANCES TRANSPIRE DAILY THAT MOST OF THE WORLD IS ILL-EQUIPPED TO MANAGE. DEFICITS LOOM HEAVILY OVER OUR FINANCIAL AFFAIRS. GOVERNMENTS CONTINUE TO DISBURSE EXPENDITURES FROM FUNDS THAT FREQUENTLY DO NOT EXIST. FORECLOSURES, AND BANKRUPTCIES, HAVE FAILED TO QUENCH A YEARNING TO LIVE ABOVE OUR MEANS. POVERTY AND DISEASE CONTINUE TO RAVAGE SEGMENTS OF SOCIETY. WHITE COLLAR CRIME IS THE NEW CATALYST TO DEFICIENCY. AND GOD IS CALLING HIS PEOPLE TO A HIGHER PLACE OF PRAISE. THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD NEED OUR HELP. THEY NEED THE HELP OF THE CHURCH, THE CALLED OUT, THE ECCLESIA, THE SAINTS OF THE MOST HIGH. AS WE BEGIN TO OPERATE IN FAITH, GOD WILL OPEN DOORS THAT PREVIOUSLY WE COULD HAVE ONLY IMAGINED.

NOTICE THAT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS:

1. THEY WERE UNITED. 2. THEY ALL SPOKE THE SAME LANGUAGE, 3. AND NOTHING WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM.

WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN CARTE BLANCHE, FULL AUTHORITY TO DO THE WILL OF OUR FATHER IN THE NAME OF JESUS. NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD. THE WORLD NEEDS TO SEE THE GRACE OF GOD, THE HAND OF GOD, AND MOST OF ALL THE SALVATION OF GOD.

ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST, THE PEOPLE WERE WITH ONE MIND, WITH ONE ACCORD, IN ONE PLACE, THEY ALL SPAKE AS THE HOLY GHOST GAVE THE UTTERANCE, AND IN THE NAME OF JESUS, SOULS WERE SAVED, HEALED AND DELIVERED. AND IT WAS ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MEN CONSTRUCTING THE TOWER OF BABEL, AND THE SAINTS IN THE UPPER ROOM IS; THOSE ASSEMBLING THE TOWER PERFORMED THE MISSION FOR PERSONAL GLORY, WHEREAS THE SAINTS IN THE UPPER ROOM GATHERED IN JESUS NAME. HEAR WHAT THEY SAID AS THEY ATTEMPTED TO ERECT THE TOWER; “LET US BUILD OURSELVES A CITY, WITH A TOWER THAT REACHES TO THE HEAVENS, SO THAT WE MAY MAKE A NAME FOR OURSELVES AND NOT BE SCATTERED OVER THE FACE OF THE EARTH.” GENESIS 11:4

THIS ATTITUDE WAS EQUIVALENT TO THE ONE PORTRAYED BY lucifer WHEN he SAID THAT he WOULD “ASCEND INTO HEAVEN, AND MAKE his THRONE ABOVE THE STARS OF GOD; SIT ALSO UPON THE MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION, IN THE SIDES OF THE NORTH, ASCEND ABOVE THE HEIGHTS OF THE CLOUDS, AND BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH.”

BUT TO THIS APPROACH THE LORD REPLIED; “you SHALL BE BROUGHT DOWN TO HELL, TO THE SIDES OF THE PIT. AND THEY THAT SEE you, SHALL NARROWLY LOOK UPON you AND CONSIDER you, SAYING, “IS THIS THE man THAT MADE THE EARTH TO TREMBLE, THAT DID SHAKE NATIONS?”

MEN WERE ENDEAVORING TO CONSTRUCT AN EDIFICE THAT WOULD EXTEND TO THE HEAVENS THAT THEY MAY MAKE A NAME FOR THEMSELVES. THEY SOUGHT TO USURP THE HONOR AND GLORY OF GOD. THEIR EFFORT WAS TO ATTAIN TO GOD USING A METHOD NOT PRESCRIBED BY GOD. THEY WERE BUILDING IT FOR THEIR OWN CELEBRITY. STRIVING TO REACH A POSITION SOLELY RESERVED FOR GOD. THEY ASPIRED TO BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH. THEY WOULD BE MASTER OF THEIR DESTINY, COMPOSE THEIR OWN METHOD OF LIVING, ERADICATE WHAT THEY PERCEIVED AS THE BARRIER OF GOD’S AUTHORITY, AND BECOME A GOD UNTO THEMSELVES. AND BECAUSE OF THIS, GOD CONFUSED THE LANGUAGE AND SCATTERED THE PEOPLE. PERHAPS GOD HAD A QUANDARY WITH THE RATIONALE FOR THE STRUCTURE, MORE THAN THE BUILDING OF THE TOWER ITSELF.
.
IN CONTRAST; THE PEOPLE OF GOD GATHERED IN THE UPPER ROOM, WOULD LIVE AND MOVE IN HIM. THEY WERE LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD FOR THE GLORY OF GOD. THEIR PURPOSE WAS TO SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD MANIFEST IN THE EARTH. IT IS WITH THIS SAME FERVOR AND FAITH, THAT WE WILL ACCOMPLISH THE WILL OF GOD TODAY. WE MUST LET OUR LIGHT SHINE BEFORE MEN THAT THEY MAY SEE OUR GOOD WORKS AND GLORIFY OUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN. MATTHEW 5:16.

THE SAINTS ARE ALSO WORKING ON A BUILDING, BUT WHOSE BUILDER AND MAKER IS GOD. WE AS LIVING STONES ARE BEING BUILT UP AS A SPIRITUAL HOUSE FOR A HOLY PRIESTHOOD, TO OFFER UP SPIRITUAL SACRIFICES ACCEPTABLE TO GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. 1 PETER: 2:5. TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR THE THINGS HE HAS DONE!
.
WITH OUR MINDS STAYED ON JESUS AND OUR TRUST IN HIM, LET GOD ARISE IN US, AND HIS ENEMIES ( DOUBT, FEAR, ENVY, STRIFE) BE SCATTERED. WITH THE MIND OF CHRIST AND THE WORD OF GOD, NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST US SHALL PROSPER, AND EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES UP AGAINST US IN JUDGEMENT WE SHALL CONDEMN. IF WE ABIDE IN HIM, AND HIS WORDS ABIDE IN US, WE CAN ASK WHAT WE WILL AND IT SHALL BE DONE. AND IN HIS NAME, NOTHING WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR US TO ACHIEVE.
WHATEVER WE HAVE BEEN PREPARING FOR, WAITING FOR, OR DREAMING OF, THE PROMISES OF GOD ARE SET IN MOTION, AND WE SHALL GO FORWARD IN HIS NAME.

THE PEOPLE OF GOD MUST BE POSITIONED TO BE USED BY HIM. IT IS NECESSARY THAT WE “CAST DOWN IMAGINATIONS AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTS ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, FOR “IF GOD BE FOR US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?” IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE REALIZE AND UTILIZE THE GIFTS AND TALENTS, AND MINISTRY THAT GOD HAS CALLED US TO. GOD IS POISED AND READY TO ACT ON OUR BEHALF, IF WE WILL TRUST HIM.

WHAT IS IT THAT YOU HAVE WANTED TO DO FOR THE LORD? MAYBE IT IS TO EVANGELIZE YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, OR START A BUSINESS; IT COULD BE WORKING IN YOUR LOCAL CHURCH. MAYBE YOU HAVE IN MIND AN INVENTION, OR PERHAPS YOU HAVE WRITTEN A BOOK. WHATEVER IT IS, WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!!

GOD IS CALLING FOR US TO “ARISE AND SHINE FOR YOUR LIGHT HAS COME. AND THE GLORY OF THE LORD RISES UPON YOU. DARKNESS IS OVER THE EARTH, AND THICK DARKNESS IS OVER THE PEOPLES, BUT THE LORD RISES UPON YOU AND HIS GLORY APPEARS OVER YOU. NATIONS WILL COME TO YOUR LIGHT AND KINGS TO THE BRIGHTNESS OF YOUR DAWN.”

GOD DESIRES TO GET THE GLORY FROM OUR LIVES. PEOPLE ARE SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS, AND WE HAVE THE TRUTH. THE CHURCH STANDS AS A BEACON OF LIGHT, IN A WORLD FILLED WITH ILLUSIONS.

ONE SONGWRITER WROTE;

Tragedies are commonplace. All kinds of diseases, people are slipping away
Economies down, people don't get enough pay; but as for me all I can say is

Thank you Lord for all you done for me!


AND BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN SO GOOD, WE OWE HIM EVERYTHING. WHATEVER WE DO, IT SHOULD BE DONE FOR HIS GLORY.

REMEMBER THE MAN WHO HID HIS ONE TALENT. AND THE EXCUSE HE GAVE? THE LORD WAS NOT PLEASED, BECAUSE THERE WAS NO FAITH EXERCISED. AND WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD, FOR HE THAT COMES TO GOD, MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM. HEBREWS 11:6 WE MUST ALIGN OURSELVES WITH GOD AND HIS WORD. AND WHEN WE UNITE, AND SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE,( THE WORDS OF FAITH ) NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR US. WE MUST SPEAK THE WORD ONLY. AS WE WALK IN FAITH, NOTHING WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE.

NORMALLY WE LOOK AT THIS SCRIPTURE AS GOD BEING ANGRY, BUT LET US LOOK AT THIS FROM A DIFFERENT ANGLE AND SEE THE POWER OF ACKNOWLEDGING THAT GOD IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS, AND THAT HE WILL DO WHAT HE SAYS HE WILL DO, SPEAKING THE WORD ONLY, LIVING HOLY, AND WALKING IN FAITH; AND IF GOD BE FOR US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?

GOD SAID THAT BECAUSE THE PEOPLE HAD UNITED, AND SPOKE THE SAME LANGUAGE, THAT NOTHING THEY SET OUT TO DO WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM.

IF THIS IS THE CASE FOR THOSE WHO DID NOT BELIEVE, HOW MUCH MORE CAPABLE ARE THOSE WHO ARE CALLED BY HIS NAME TO DO GREAT THINGS. DANIEL 11:32 SAYS,” THE PEOPLE THAT DO KNOW THEIR GOD SHALL BE STRONG, AND DO EXPLOITS.”

I PRAY YOU WILL REJOICE IN THE FACT THAT GOD HAS SAID, “NOTHING THEY SET OUT TO DO WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE!!” PRAISE GOD !

THIS IS THE TIME AND WE ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE. PULL OUT THAT LITTLE NOTEBOOK OF IDEAS YOU HAD TUCKED AWAY, AND SEE IF GOD WON’T DO EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL YOU ASK OR THINK ACCORDING TO THE POWER THAT WORKETH IN YOU....WHAT POWER? HOLY GHOST POWER!

LET US ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER, THAT WHEN WE STAND BEFORE HIM WE WILL HEAR HIM SAY “WELL DONE THOU GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT; THOU HAST BEEN FAITHFUL OVER A FEW THINGS, I WILL MAKE YOU RULER OVER MANY THINGS; ENTER THOU INTO THE JOY OF THE LORD.”
