See Him Enthroned

There are so many ideas about the Lords return and exactly how it will take place. Each one of us have a sense of it but they all vary to some degree. But no matter how we think or what we feel about the end time events and the Lords return, when the Lord does it, He will do it His way. So the important thing is not that we have it figured out but that we are ready. I am convinced that whatever God does to advance His purposes on the earth is birthed out of worship. Many have their eyes on world events and offer outer court prophesies and words birthed out of natural light in an attempt to stir the souls of the Saints to become active..politically…socially….morally but the battle is Not there. It is only as we see Him enthroned that His presence is released in our lives. Its that Spirit that frees us from sin and death. That is the Gospel we are to proclaim to the world. Not one of power and might but one that is accomplished by the Spirit of The Lord. It is only as we see Him enthroned that His purpose is released in our lives. When we see Him enthroned all human effort ceases and we enter into His rest and our life is hid in Christ and with hearts full of worship we ascend and occupy our place in the heavens far above all principalities, powers and spiritual darkness. That is the place of all authority that we come to with boldness. As the pattern Son sits beside the Father and makes intercession for us we receive that burden within our hearts to see His Kingdom come and His will be done in earth as it is in heaven.

"Know ye not that your body is a temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have from God? and ye are not your own; for ye were bought with a price: glorify God therefore in your body" (1 Cor. 6:19,20).

A day must come in our lives, as definite as the day of our conversion, when we give up all right to ourselves and submit to the absolute Lordship of Jesus Christ. There may be a practical issue raised by God to test the reality of our consecration, but whether that be so or not, there must be a day when, without reservation, we surrender everything to Him ...ourselves...our families...our possessions...our business and all of our time. All we are and have and hope to become belongs to Him, to be held henceforth entirely at His disposal. From that day we are no longer our own masters, but only stewards. Not until the Lordship of Jesus Christ is a settled thing in our hearts can the Spirit really operate effectively in us. He cannot direct our lives effectually until all control of them is committed to Him. If we do not give Him absolute authority in our lives, He can be present, but He cannot be powerful. The power of the Spirit is stayed. Are you living for the Lord or for yourself? Perhaps that is too general a question, so let me be more specific. Is there anything God is asking of you that you are withholding from Him? Is there any point of contention between you and Him... Not till every controversy is settled and the Holy Spirit is given full sway can He reproduce the life of Christ in the heart of any believer!

personal spiritual hunger

The most valuable asset we have is our personal spiritual hunger for the Lord. Unless we are spiritually hungry we will be content to remain in the reflected glory of someone else's walk with the Lord. If we remain here we are only an observer of the Kingdom and are feed exclusively by what others receive from the Lord. This spiritual hunger comes from the Lord, it’s a gifting from Him. To maintain this gift it has to be valued, guarded, treasured and kept. It has to be feed the right kind of diet for it to stay healthy. We do this by spending time with the Lord. We do this by choice each day as we separate ourselves from the things that will rob us of the presence of The Lord. This has nothing to do with a list of do's, don'ts and doctrines… Its about making ourselves available and desirable to the Lord. We hunger to enter into His higher purpose for our life. So then here comes another day…one of many small choices for me to ponder in my heart…should I do this thing or not?…. go to this place? or spend time with this person?….well…would The Lord be comfortable to do this thing with me that I am considering?? Its not a legalistic thing…It's placing a value on the Lords presence…on being open and sensitive to the Lord. These decisions are personal and private…we may be prompted to choose not to do something that another believer has the liberty to do…Whenever we deny ourselves we pay a price and that becomes a witness to the Lord…It becomes a testimony as I rise above the things that could hinder and become a weight… it is obedience in that very thing that releases the presence of the Lord into my life and I become an overcomer and enter into a higher level of relationship with The Lord.

Your King

Your King is waiting patiently for humanity, for you, to quiet down, to silence the noise of mere mortals, to remove the distractions as well as the trappings of unproven processes. He is waiting for you. His heart is bursting with the very solutions you have prayed for but expected another to deliver to you. It is your ear He wants to capture, your heart He wants to ignite, your destiny He wants to release....listen!!
