Let the eagle fly!
"But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
Shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint."
You are at school attending class with other students. Teacher Holy Spirit is at the front of the room, standing in front of a white board. He begins to draw a line from one side of the board all the way across to the other side.
Above the line He writes: The Length of Your Life on Earth
Then Holy Spirit asks all the students if they would like to know where they presently are on their journey of life. Each student excitedly says, “Yes!”
Then He walked toward the end of the line and drew a vertical line that was very close to the end. “We are here.”
Walking to the side of the room, Teacher began to lay His hands on the head of each student. As He did, a spiritual blast of resurrection power went through them. Every student began speaking in tongues, praising God, and prophesying of things to come. One of His students spoke:
“I will surely do a quick work, a great work, in your day—exceedingly more than you can imagine—receive. Things are going to multiply—FAST. The outpouring of God’s Spirit: The Spirit…going out from the Believing Church—destroying yokes, bondages, and evil. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested—to destroy the works of the devil.
“So rejoice—times and season and heaven and earth rejoice to see the day of Christ—the manifestation of the sons of God. Yes—everything will come into order as preparations are made for My return to meet My holy ones—and then the great change My glory will bring—produce in My Body—in the twinkling of an eye—the Great Joining of those asleep and those awake—in triumphant heavenly order.
“The spiritually awake will be changed—even prior to the Great Joining—as My Spirit will increase the inner power to produce: My will…My Words—in the grand and spectacular culmination of My age of grace.
“So fear not, fret not over circumstances and the things that are out of order, for we will have our day of triumph. I am the God of justice. I change not. So be filled with joy for I shall manifest My power and My glory through you—the Anointed Church!”
Then some of the students began laying their hands on those who were sick. One in a wheel chair jumped up and went running around the room praising God. Another who had come to class in deep despair was immediately delivered and began dancing and singing in the Spirit. Those outside heard the laughter and commotion and wondered if there was a party going on and the students were drinking.
2016—The Great Year
Runners in a relay race may feel extreme fatigue as they get near the end, but when those who have been trained for this race see they are getting close to the finish line a tremendous burst of energy suddenly strengthens their weary legs to run even faster.
Crossing the finish line is what they have strived for their whole lives. And for these few, it has been their very reason for living because they have their eyes focused on their Beloved Coach who is waiting for them at the finish line.
While we The Church are busy preparing the way of the LORD through diversities of ministries/activities of the Holy Spirit, these three things need to be fulfilled before the end will come…three things that will merge into one.
1. The fruit of the earth (Romans 11:25)
2. Receiving the early and latter rain
3. The Gospel of the Kingdom must be preached in all the world as a witness to the nations
“Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.” James 5:7-8
“And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:12-14
“Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.” Matthew 24:34
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light…” 1 Peter 2:9
Harvest time is a season where everything that’s been sown grows up. For the farmer, it is the season to reap.
Definition of Harvest: the process of gathering ripe crops from the fields.
The harvest marks the end of the growing season, or the growing cycle for a particular crop. On smaller farms harvesting the crop is the most labor intensive activity of the growing season. On large mechanized farms harvesting utilizes the most expensive and sophisticated farm machinery to reap the crop.
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
The parable of the Wheat and the Tares is a visual picture of the Kingdom of Heaven. Good seed was sown into the farmer’s field, but while men slept, the enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat. At the end of the age there will come the great separation. The tares (all things that offend and those who practice lawlessness) are gathered together to be burned, but the wheat are gathered into the farmer’s barn.
Before the large combine machinery of our day, wheat was harvested by various ways of sifting/shaking to separate the tares. When olives are ready to be harvested, some farmers have a machine that attaches to the trunk of the tree that shakes the whole tree so that the olives fall into large nets.
“…‘Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.’ Now this, ‘Yet once more,’ indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.
“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:26-29
The Blessed Generation
In my lifetime I have seen a terrible deterioration in moral values.
But when I think of what God has done since I was born again over thirty-five years ago, it is outstanding! Prior to my conversion, I knew nothing of the scriptures or spiritual things. And I'm not alone! Think of the two-billion Christians that are now on earth and the six-hundred million who pray in tongues! Think of over 35 million Believers in the underground church in China. Think of Christian Television covering the nations and the multitude of Christian websites. Certainly the great cloud of witnesses that have gone before us must be amazed at all the technology, books, music, and satellites that are spreading the gospel…IN JUST ONE GENERATION!
This in itself is a sign of the end of the age.
And the best is yet to come!
It is time for the manifestation of the sons of God!
That revealing must come to each of us first before our true nature can be revealed in the great revival that is about to come forth. The scriptures tell us who we are…we are IN HIM! IN CHRIST JESUS!
Read through the Who You Are and You are an Overcomer Scriptures to renew your mind to your true identity. It’s like receiving a download from heaven.
The Accuser of the Brethren
This needs to be done often because the world endeavors to chip away at who we are, but the Word of God empowers us to be transformed into the image of Christ.
To Know Resurrection Power
“… and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places…” Ephesians 1:19
Put On the Armor of God
That means…USE IT!
Remember, our enemy is NOT flesh and blood…Ephesians 6:10-18.
Jesus defeated the devil by speaking what is written! Luke 4:1-14
“But I am the Lord your God,
Who divided the sea whose waves roared--
The Lord of hosts is His name.
And I have put My words in your mouth;
I have covered you with the shadow of My hand,
That I may plant the heavens,
Lay the foundations of the earth,
And say to Zion, ‘You are My people.’ ” Isaiah 51:15-16
“You will also declare a thing,
And it will be established for you;
So light will shine on your ways.” Job 22:28
“Thus you shall say to them: ‘The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth shall perish from the earth and from under these heavens.’” Jeremiah 10:11
“Swords at the ready! Thrust right! Set your blade! Thrust left--
Wherever your edge is ordered!” Ezekiel 21:16
“And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 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 10:18-19
“… ‘I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:18-19
2016—THE GREAT YEAR
Listen to the New Year’s Eve Service with Kenneth Copeland at Eagle Mountain International Church…an outstanding message to The Glorious Church!
If you’re short on time you can skip the music. Put your curser on 57 minutes.
Are you born again?
Then you were born of an incorruptible SEED, the Word of God which lives and abides forever. 1 Peter 1:23
What should children born of Holy Seed be doing?
What should you be saying? How should you be thinking? It’s time for that seed (Kingdom) in each of us to grow up and manifest, for it’s HARVEST TIME!!!
Holy Spirit is our Teacher. Each of us are His students. Expect Him to release a spiritual blast of resurrection power in you to expand your capacity to receive His strength to complete your assignment—your race—and to cross the finish line in glorious triumph— to meet our Beloved in the air! 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
I run my race to win!
I will not be defeated and I will not quit!
2016—Times of Restoration of All Things! Acts 3:21
