We are now approaching a critical mass moment in this epoch of history, where a heavenly invasion of planet Earth is coming with explosive movements of God and sudden atmospheric shifts of presence and power. The time of the birthing of the fullness of the purposes of God in our lives is now. An apostolic/prophetic body of saints has been made ready for passing over into an offensive move of God. Events will occur to tip the scales of justice for many on the frontlines of the battle.
The training and preparation time is over, and God is saying that it is time to break camp. He says, "You have been on this mountain long enough." I believe it is important in this month to get positioned to give birth, to travail, to pray and to push through the gate. This is a time to push. Pray until the barriers break open. God says, "Shall I bring to the time of birth and not cause delivery?" (see Isaiah 66:9).
It is time to take hold of our passion—the thing that drives and moves us to action, the thing that keeps us awake at night. We are entering a new dynamic where we are being urged to take hold of our destiny, the righteous cause embedded by God in our DNA.
Having a Heart Position for Possessing Your Assignment
We are fashioned and structured architecturally like the temple of God, having an outer court, a holy place and a holy of holies in our spirit where God dwells. All parts of us were meant to serve the Holy Spirit through our spirit man; that is how we were designed. When we are born again, we enter a new paradigm where our spirit is made perfect. The Holy Spirit resides in our spirit, which has become the seat of God's throne. GOD HAS COME IN. This is an astounding occasion, because everything of God is deposited in us! You have now become the fulfillment of God's new temple where He dwells.
Paul asks this question: "Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?" (1 Corinthians 3:16).
To possess the promises of God requires the understanding of our identity as the temple in which God resides, and an attitude of fierce determination of spirit to press through and conquer. It is important and necessary to conquer the old ways, which have kept us trapped and locked in ungodly mindsets, in order to possess the spiritual capacity to see the prize, with a stance fixed on laying hold of that which rightfully belongs to us.
We are leaving the elementary things, as it says in Hebrews 6:1, and moving on to maturity. We are becoming those who have tasted or eaten or experienced "the good word of God and the powers of the age to come" (see Hebrews 6:5). (Photo via Unsplash)
"To possess," in this context, is to first see the prize, with our eyes fixed on laying hold of that which rightfully belongs to us. God is now raising the consciousness of His people to a new level of seeing and perceiving. Take hold of the vision by faith and make it yours, as promised by God.
It Is Time to Execute the Vision!
After much perseverance and preparation, God is saying that it is time for the manifestation of the dream in its fullness; it is time to execute the vision. We prepare ourselves in prayer and fasting until we see the cloud the size of a man's hand and begin to gird up our loins with expectation. We trust God to open doors and set up divine appointments on the road ahead. In the timing of God, we are in full expectation mode that attracts what is needed.
It is the time of rain and, therefore, the time to ask for the rain. Supply comes and human resources come; finances come; doors open...we crossover into destiny!
We Are the Resource
Do you need resources? Resources have been prepared for such a time. As we break through into the fullness of our call, we must remember, through Jesus, we are the resource! There is a store and reserve of wealth within us because God has come in! Every resource needed is within you and is available to you. By faith, you can withdraw what is needed, when needed. You can call it out and call it forth by connecting your faith with the Lord's faith, as you draw on Heaven's supply in Christ.
We have become partakers of His divine nature according to 2 Peter 1:4. A partaker is a sharer and an associate. We have been given an inheritance in Christ and have a credit line from the royal bank of Heaven.
"In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory...you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession... (Ephesians 1:11-14)
Therefore, Paul's prayer for us is this: "...that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 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, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the Church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all." (Ephesians 1:17-23)
According to this Scripture, everything has already been provided by God and given to you. In Him, you have obtained an inheritance. HAVING BELIEVED, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, which is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession. "Until the redemption" means to go and get it—what has been acquired for you! The inheritance is there in Heaven's bank, waiting for a withdrawal. We can now go forth in the power of His might.
God is saying that you have been and are sitting on a goldmine, on a heavenly vault full of treasure. You are sitting on everything God has provided for us, oblivious to it. Have we stopped hearing the knocking on our doors? The treasure is ours; we take it by faith, and we receive it by faith. We take it with eyes of faith. We see it and we believe it. Seeing is believing.
How to Unlock the Vault
To grab a hold of what has already been given to us, we must use the key of praising Him, praising Him by faith for what He has given. In the past we may have praised Him for the goldmine without recognizing that we are in possession of it—that it is ours. Or the treasure can just be sitting there, and we are not taking hold of it or accessing it. We give our time to listening to the 'fake news' coming from our souls—the lies the enemy continually attempts to feed the saints. (Photo via Unsplash)
There is great power in praise! In praise, power is released to unlock the door as God inhabits our praise. Praise creates the atmosphere of Jesus, where nothing is impossible! To praise God is to give the enemy no place, as it pulls the rug out from under him, regardless of what he tries.
In the wilderness years, we get to know God and learn to trust in His love, mercy and faithfulness. We learn discipline and self-control. It's a time of cleaning house and preparing for the glory. We clean house by repenting of sin, unbelief, complaining, contentiousness and idolatry. However, in the PROMISED LAND we move out and reach out to take what has been provided. We have learned to walk by faith as sons of God and ambassadors of Christ, and we simply conquer and take the land in His might and power. He reigns over the land, and we reign with Him.
We are meant to come into our full inheritance in our identity as sons of God. In Him, we reign. Another dimension is calling, beckoning to us to live as sons of God! We are kings and priests of our God. We are to rise up and reign with Him in this life.
No one can do what you do as you represent Christ's ministry uniquely, distinctively and exceptionally. Just as the father said to his elder son, so our Father is saying to us, "Everything I have belongs to you" (see Luke 15:31). You are the resource God has prepared for this era. Everything is written in your heart. You have the goods, and you are the goods—you are it!
"'My son,' the father said, 'you are always with me, and EVERYTHING I HAVE IS YOURS...'" (Luke 15:31, emphasis mine)
The time is now to reach for it—to stretch forth and extend your spirit man and take possession of it. Reach for it in fasting and prayer; reach for it in communion; reach for it in worship; reach for it in stance and attitude. As you reach forward in faith, the spiritual capacity within you will increase, giving you the unction to press through the threshold! We expand our capacity to contain Him by consecration, obedience and holiness. The threshold is the point of entry to the gate or door before you, the beginning position for the race set before you. It is the threshold of a new age.
God Is Announcing the Release!
Things are about to shift rapidly and accelerate. The day of sorrow and weeping has become the day of faith and strength. The suddenlies of God are upon us. We have been prepared, qualified and made ready for this, and God is announcing the release. Heavenly trumpets are sounding, calling the army divisions to get into position and take their place. The trumpeters (assigned leadership) are sounding the message for troops to be ready to move out! We are moving out onto holy ground, hence the past delay. A vast worldwide army is now primed to move out to possess the promises of God and to gather a multitude of souls into the Kingdom.
Lord, release resurrection life and power, that we may now rise to new life in You!
