Kindness of God brings repentance. 2018 will be great. The sides of our tent are being widened. He is going to impart to us His very essence of incomparable Love and Kindness beyond anything we have previously experienced. We will enter 2019 with an endtime fragrance that will erase the influence of empty rules, traditions and works of self promotion. There has been a stench that caused church pastors to be less acceptable than a bartender or used car salesman. It has been a long time since we were well accepted and even honoured by society. Now we face derision and suspicion. Many churches have had the courage to assess what kind of fruit they are. With a brave heart and honesty, they will comprehend how far we have fallen into our own standards of religious submission. These churches, through repentance from using their own strength to bring about God’s will, are becoming ready for the battle against the father of all lies. I belong in such a church.
Now the good news. Having being brought low by our carnal nature, God is not going to leave us filling buckets full of tears of failure and regret for very long. As we take the posture of the poor man who received Mercy and abandon the idea that we are better than that wretched man, a fullness of His Grace and Mercy will flood our hearts. God will rise us up so visual before society and showcase that humanity was originally created to be filled with His Love and Beauty, Wisdom and Counsel. Out of ashes we will arise as an eagle. This spectacle of the church being made whole, by sweet Redemption, will awaken the spirit that is resident deep in the unredeemed heart in all mankind.
The "God shaped void" that is in all mankind from the time of creation until today will witness the truth that lies within God's people. A clear choice will stand before the world so clear and true that mankind will not have any excuses. They may allow Love to change their lives or try to eradicate us, but without success.
Are you ready? Wait one moment, we must talk about the qualifications to be part of this fantastic Family, the Family that will turn this world upside down. I was taught a long time ago to desire God with all my heart and He will give us the ability to live it out. Are you willing to relinquish all rights and forgive all who have wronged you? If so, you will enter the trade of all trades, the bargain of all bargains. My selfish un- trustworthy character for a Joy that is hard to speak about but wonderful to live in. We are being changed. We have access to live, now in His Kingdom. God is not trying to get us into Heaven but Heaven is for us now and we need it.
It is a tremendous thing to enter the heart of the Father. Many are camped outside of His wonderful Mercy and are not availing themselves of the Grace to walk in wholeness. Leave all self righteousness and draw near to the Father. If your desire is true, you will walk not as a servant but as a Son\Daughter.
In 2018, the Love of God will enter the deepest recesses of our hearts. These inner workings will never stop. In 2019, we will be so full of His love and Presence that our joy will spill on to all we come in contact with. The results of our unconditional surrender avails us of this absolute awesome walk with our Father. There will be battles in 2018 and victories will be experienced. Most of the conflict will be in our own hearts. God’s Grace and Mercy will overcome these inner hidden problems. Failures that only you and God know about will come to an end as His Love filters into all aspects of our thoughts and deep rooted problems.
Again, much of the warfare in 2018 will be learning to submit our inner man to the working of God’s Love. Learning to love one another with His Love must be our motivation. Without being compelled by Love, we will end up a very sad casualty and not the power house He intended us to become. In 2019, God will be lifting up His “Great Ones,” That is you and me. From high above all the dark and ruthless powers we will destroy the demonic warlords that want to destroy every aspect of goodness still resident in the earth. We are being trained by the Holy Spirit to bring judgement against all evil.
Our joy in the Father will be our strength.
Give up to Love and let us enjoy a life of peace with contagious laughter and power.
No greater Love than when a brother/sister lays down life for another.
Love in Jesus…Dan
