For such a time as this

Now is the best time to live, all people who are right now alive live in the most exciting time in the whole history of humanity. In the bible is more written about our time than about every other time, including the time when jesus walked on earth (quote from Chuck Missler). One of my favorite authors, Roland Pletts writes in his totally awesome book “Covenant of Glory” following statement:

“We are now witnessing preparations for the greatest conflict ever to be fought, except for the personal conflict Jesus fought at the cross. We are about to see the greatest acts of God since the Lord brought His people out of Egypt. Yet many in the church are asleep. Now is the time for the church to awaken from slumber and pray as never before. We need to pray for believers world wide; Jewish believers, Palestinian believers and all believers. Jacob’s salvation will bring life out of death. (Rom 11:15)”

Amen!

A. W. Tozer – About the Filling of The Spirit

That every Christian can be and should be filled with the Holy Spirit would hardly seem to be a matter for debate among Christians. … I want here boldly to assert that it is my happy belief that every Christian can have a copious outpouring of the Holy Spirit in a measure far beyond that received at conversion, and I might also say, far beyond that enjoyed by the rank and file of orthodox believers today.

It is important that we get this straight, for until doubts are removed, faith is impossible. God will not surprise a doubting heart with an effusion of the Holy Spirit, nor will He fill anyone who has doctrinal questions about the possibility of being filled.

In light of this, it will be seen how empty and meaningless is the average church service today. All the means are in evidence; the one ominous weakness is the absence of the Spirit’s power. … The power from on high is neither known nor desired by pastor or people. This is nothing less than tragic, and all the more so because it falls within the field of religion, where the eternal destinies of men are involved.

Fundamentalism has stood aloof from the liberal in self-conscious superiority and has on its own part fallen into error, the error of textualism, which is simply orthodoxy without the Holy Ghost. Everywhere among conservatives we find persons who are Bible-taught but not Spirit-taught. They conceive truth to be something which they can grasp with the mind.

If a man holds to the fundamentals of the Christian faith, he is thought to possess divine truth. But it does not follow. There is no truth apart from the Spirit. The most brilliant intellect may be imbecilic when confronted with the mysteries of God. For a man to understand revealed truth requires an act of God equal to the original act which inspired the text. … “Now we have received, not the Spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things which are freely given us of God.”

For the textualism of our times is based upon the same premise as the old line rationalism, that is, the belief that the human mind is the supreme authority in the judgment of truth. Or otherwise stated, it is confidence in the ability of the human mind to do that which the Bible declares it was never created to do and consequently is wholly incapable of doing.Philosophical rationalism is honest enough to reject the Bible flatly. Theological rationalism rejects it while pretending to accept it and in so doing puts out its own eyes.

Few there are who without restraint will open their whole heart to the blessed Comforter. He has been and is so widely misunderstood that the very mention of His name in some circles is enough to frighten many people into resistance.

It is no use to deny that Christ was crucified by persons who would today be called fundamentalists. This should prove to be disquieting if not downright distressing to us who pride ourselves on our orthodoxy. An unblessed soul filled with the letter of truth may actually be worse off than a pagan kneeling before a fetish. We are saved only when our intellects are indwelt by the loving fire that came at Pentecost. For the Holy Spirit is not a luxury, not something added now and again to produce a deluxe type of Christian once in a generation. No. He is for every child of God a vital necessity, and that He fill and indwell His people is more than a languid hope. It is rather an inescapable imperative.

Now the Bible teaches that there is something in God which is like emotion. … God has said certain things about Himself, and these furnish all the grounds we require. “The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing” (Zeph. 3:17). This is but one verse among thousands which serve to form our rational picture of what God is like, and tell us plainly that God feels something like our love, like our joy, and what He feels makes Him act very much as we would in a similar situation; He rejoices over His loved ones with joy and singing.

Here is emotion on as high a plain as it can ever be seen, emotion flowing out of the heart of God Himself. Feeling, then, is not the degenerate son of unbelief that is often painted by some of our Bible teachers. Our ability to feel is one of the marks of our divine origin. We need not be ashamed of either tears or laughter. The Christian stoic who has crushed his feelings is only two-thirds of a man; an important third part has been repudiated. Holy feeling had an important place in the life of our Lord. “For the joy that was set before Him” He endured the cross and despised its shame. He pictured Himself crying, “Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost.”

The work of the Holy Spirit is, among other things, to rescue the redeemed man’s emotions, to restring his harp and open again the wells of sacred joy which have been stopped up by sin.

The Two Powers in Heaven – Jesus in the Old Testament by Dr. Michael Heiser

Dr. Heiser explains the appearances of the person later known as “Jesus” in the “Old Testament”. This is an eye-opener – Jesus, the Word, is everywhere in the Old Testament, and he is very “personal” and very “physical”.

The Jews used to have a doctrine of “Two Powers” or “Two Jahwes” in Heaven, this doctrine explained all the appearances of “The Angel of the Lord“, the “memra“, the “Word of the Lord appearing“, the personification of “Wisdom” and other manifestations of the one and only God. That is one of the reasons, John picked up on the “logos” beeing Jesus – that was not greek influence, but building on the pentateuch/torah foundation. When the jewish Rabbis later realized, that the christians using this as a proof for Jesus, they decided, the doctrine of the second Jahwe or of the “two powers” is heresy and against the “Sh’ma“…

The Church in USA is at the point of death

Some very plain words from Open Doors USA Director Dr. Carl Moeller about the American Church, you find the whole article in the link below the quote:

“For years we’ve said wake up and strengthen what remains, Open Doors USA President and CEO Dr. Carl Moeller told The Christian Post in an exclusive interview. We would think of the American church as a napping church and that we would elbow it and it would wake up and rouse itself and do something.

In my mind today, the picture I have is a church in a diabetic coma that has gorged itself on the sweets of affluence, materialism, and the idolatry of worshipping the materialistic world. That diabetic coma is now life threatening. We as a church are at the point of death – not the church in the Middle East. We are the ones who can no longer rouse ourselves to even pray for an hour on behalf of things that God would have us pray for.”

He also prophesies a coming persecution to the USA and explains that the task of the Church is not to entertain the people, ubt to prepare them for the spiritual battle that is raging around us.

Important prophetic insights for the year 2012

Some real good prophetic insight about the coming judgement and shaking of all things that can be shaken. For such a time as this! We live in very exciting days and Jesus is coming soon. The Bible has more to say about this time that we live in than about any other time in the history of mankind. The Day of Man is about to end and the Day of the Lord is at hand! Blow the trumpet for the church, He is drawing near. The Feast of tabernacles is at hand and “of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

BETHLEHEM OR JERUSALEM (Dr. Lalith Mendis)
Bethlehem is where Christ was born & Church began. Bethlehem in every age attracts hostile attention of kings & priest and the neglectful disdain of the innkeepers of the world. They think Bethlehem has no commercial or imperial significance. For God Bethlehem is precious. Bethlehem ‘s competitor is Jerusalem – brash & brainy, political & powerful, religious & ritualistic, economically energetic. That’s where the upward mobile make their pastures. Jerusalem is Political capital. Bethlehem is Spiritual Capital . Where will you invest? Where will you ask your child to cast his lot?

We who are called to Bethlehem can find it hard to keep focus on what God thinks is significant. Our peers say Jerusalem is great and run their rat races to get ahead. Digital media say it loud with dazzle. Becoming great in Bethlehem is what David did unseen by all seen only by God. One day he became king. With Christ birth little Bethlehem became famous.

FIVEFOLD FETTERS OF JOSEPH (Dr. Lalith Mendis)

(20) The king sent and set him free; the ruler of the people, and let him go free.

Until this time, it seems as if Joseph’s brothers, Ishmaelites, Potiphar or Prison head was controlling Joseph’s destiny. Yet the Lord was directing Joseph to the place (prison) where he would make contact with a person from the court of Pharaoh.

• Joseph facing the competition and deception of brothers was tied with the parental root of Jacob deceiving Isaac and Rebecca deceiving Laban. Unknown to us our family roots may work against us. Fetters of human love of a doting father who could not see himself less than Joseph – bowing down to him bound Joseph. Father himself did not receive and affirm Joseph’s heavenly oracle. Given to Jacob’s fond affection, Joseph would never have left home. A time has come when true fathers will not be a Saul but recognize the Davids and launch them.

• There are many who once received the multicoloured robe of the Father , now in a pit cast by envious brothers. These are unable to arise beyond the pitfalls of bitterness and walled in Churchianity.

• There are others sold under the slavery of carnal sin of Ishmael in their life . They could not get Ishmael out of them and lost the promise.

There are churches like Lot sitting at the gate of human greatness. There are churches that choose to be in tents like Abraham. God will raise kings from these churches with a kingly anointing to posses their territory. Lot will perish with the world’s Sodom . Yet God gives them a chance to come out. God did not even need 50 or 10. He needed one like Abraham who will walk blamelessly day after day. Gen 17:1.

• There are others who are labouring in the house of Potiphar for their secular career tempted also by Potiphar’s wife. The time has come for them to arise to greater things that God has for them. God will use them to transfer wealth from darkness to the kingdom of light if they can serve God alone rather than trying to serve God and mammon. They will conquer Mammon and Jezebel.

• Yet others have their feet cast into chains in prisons of men . Rev 2:8-11. But the hour has come all circumstances will work together for Joseph’s heaven destined promotion. The feet that had iron fetters will be placed on a golden footstool. The promise to the Church of Smyrna .
