“Truth shall spring out of the earth,
And righteousness shall look down from heaven.
Yes, the Lord will give what is good;
And our land will yield its increase.
Righteousness will go before Him,
And shall make His footsteps our pathway.” (Psalm 85:11-13)

NOVEMBER 8, 2016
“The day the rains came!” Selah
God has answered our prayers for the election.
This is VERY marvelous in our eyes! But just as the President-elect has an enormous task ahead of him in restoring order to our government, The Glorious Church is required to continue to be fervent in prayer. Continue to hold him and his team up in daily prayer as they begin making important decisions. More information at Current Events.
“Wisdom is the principal thing;
Therefore, get wisdom and in all your getting,
get understanding.” Proverbs 4:7
WHAT NOW LORD? “FEAR NOT!”
As we are witnessing the power of God’s hand and His mercy on our nation to restore order, the call is going forth to each individual in Christ’s Body to fulfill their assignment. It is not a time to back down and take a vacation from prayer, and certainly not a time to be fearful.
Moses had a huge assignment didn’t he?
He was to lead three million people out of Egypt into the desert, into an unknown land. As they approached the land of Canaan, leaders of each tribe were sent to spy out the land God was giving them. When they SAW the giants, fear swept over them; that is, except two leaders who remembered that God was with them.
Sadly, the ten unbelieving leaders managed to sway the nation that they could not take the land like God said.
Yeah, but what about God’s will?
God could not take them into the land because of their fear and unbelief. Their own fear-filled words would have produced their destruction. (See Numbers 13:27-33 – Hebrews 3:7-19)
God is sovereign and almighty. In His sovereignty, He gave man dominion over the earth and told him to multiply and subdue it. (Genesis 1:26 & 28)
God works through His people to accomplish His will.
As we know, the people who complained against the LORD would die in the wilderness. Joshua would ultimately lead the next generation, those who lived by faith in God, to accomplish what their fathers were afraid to do.
So we see God’s plan was put on hold waiting for that next generation.
THE END DAYS GENERATION:
When time runs out …
It is obvious to me that The Church on earth in 2016 is the generation that will meet our Savior in the air when the last trumpet is blown. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:52)
Jesus did not leave us without clues about the end days. His clues are written in the gospels. He doesn’t want us ignorant about these things. He said we are to look at the fig tree, Israel, and the other nations. He also gave us many other signs to look for.
He said in one generation we would see ALL these things take place.
Read Matthew Chapter 24 & 25.
Times of Separation
Much of what we see happening in the nations around us was prophesied by the LORD in His teaching on The Parable of the Tares and the Wheat. This reveals how the angels are in charge of removing those things that “offend and practice lawlessness” from His kingdom. (Matthew 13:41) Tuesday Bible Lesson on September 20, 2016 and October 4, 2016 reveal more about this interesting subject.
Much of what was written in the gospels is pointing toward our day. The nations will begin to see the fulfillment of these prophecies in the days and months ahead.
What can we do?
THE HOLY SPIRIT: THE REVEALER
The Head of The Glorious Church, Jesus Christ, has given to each of us His Spirit.
In other words, the General of the Army is resident within each soldier!
He will keep us safe and help us to complete our assignments as Ambassadors for Christ. And He is washing us with the Word to be presented to Jesus — holy, without spot, wrinkle, or blemish. (Ephesians 5:27)
Holy Spirit is the one who has had our generation in training for the time we have just entered into. “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” (John 16:13)
When Jesus, our Beloved, turned thirty years of age, He was baptized in water and by God’s Spirit as He came up out of the water. (Matthew 3:16) He did no mighty works until the Holy Spirit came upon Him.
And He said, “I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.” (John 14:10)
“…how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” (Acts 10:38)
Jesus was under authority to have authority.
You and I submit to His authority so that we have authority to accomplish His will.
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)
DO THE GREATER WORKS! John 14:12
How can you and I be led by His Spirit to do the greater works if we don’t know the sound of His voice? And how can we know His voice if we don’t study and read the Word of God? How can He remind us of what Jesus said if we don’t know what is written? (John 14:26)
We cannot let the Word of God slip from our lives in our busy days.
The enemy comes to try to distract, deceive, and displace to possess.
We are in a war. Be wise!
THE ARMY OF THE LORD
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” (Ephesians 6:10-11)
Can you imagine sending soldiers out to fight a war with no training, no direction, no armor and no ammunition? For one thing, they would be scared … to death!
That’s precisely why God could not allow the Moses generation to go in and take the land.
Engagement is Necessary
Use Your Weapons
D-Day World War II:
Allies invade Western Europe in the largest amphibious attack in history. A multitude of destroyers at sea bombarded the land as soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy in a massive coordinated effort to take the land and defeat the advancement of the enemy.
General Eisenhower said, “We will accept nothing less than full victory!”
When some Christians, who are spiritually joined together with other Believers, don’t engage in the battle, it may hinder another Believer’s ability to complete their assignment, for we are all members of one another. If someone’s arm is disabled, does it not hinder the rest of the body?
FAITH IN HIS NAME
Now imagine a Body of Believers, sober, vigilant, taking our authority over the enemy, watching over one another, casting out devils, healing the sick, taking the Kingdom of God by force!
What if Jesus was running every church?
What if every Pastor would boldly teach his troops in warfare training declaring, “We will accept nothing less than full victory!”
“… you are no longer strangers and foreigners,
but fellow citizens with the saints
and members of the household of God,
having been built on the foundation
of the apostles and prophets,
Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,
in whom the whole building,
being fitted together,
grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
in whom you also are being built together
for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”
“… speaking the truth in love,
may grow up in all things into Him who is the head--Christ--
from whom the whole body,
joined and knit together by what every joint supplies,
according to the effective working
by which every part does its share,
causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.” Ephesians 4:15-16
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God
for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments
and every high thing that exalts itself
against the knowledge of God,
bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ …”
(2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
The Word Became Flesh
When Jesus was in the desert for forty days, He did not fight against flesh and blood but an enemy that is unseen. Jesus engaged in warfare and showed us how to overcome. He had to use the sword of the Spirit, God’s Word, against His enemy, not once, but three times. (Luke 4:1-13)
Being led of God’s Spirit and fighting the good fight of faith is necessary for the End Days generation.
Nehemiah, who led in the rebuilding of the wall around Jerusalem in just 52 days, said this of the workers: “… with one hand they worked at construction, and with the other held a weapon.” (Nehemiah 4:17)
OUR BLOOD COVENANT RIGHTS
“No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
‘Says the Lord.’ (Isaiah 54:17)
Soldiers in the Army of the LORD need to be strong and healthy.
If you need healing, Kenneth Copeland gave an excellent anointed teaching, line upon line, about our right to live long and be healthy all our days. You have blood-bought rights to be healthy. There is prayer for the sick at the end of the teaching.
Brother Copeland's teaching on the authority and power in the name of the LORD is outstanding. At the end he reveals how to pray for our President-elect. This is one you won't want to miss!
Pray more in tongues. (Jude 20-21)
Meditate on Ephesians 3:14-21.
Power Praise has a recording of the blowing of the Shofar. Let’s all let that sound into the air every day over our cities. Pray in tongues while you’re listening, it's awesome!
