Nothing Hid

“Surely in vain, the net is spread
in the sight of any bird”
Proverbs 1:17

Nothing is hidden from Him – He sees everything. The secret councils of all are open to Him – whether it be the strategies of the enemy, the devious plans of men or treachery between brothers and sisters – God sees all. As pointless as it is to set a trap for a bird in plain sight, so is the folly of all who work unrighteousness.

“…for the Lord is a God of knowledge,
and by him, actions are weighed”
1 Samuel 2:3

From the presumption of Ananias and Sapphira to the scheming of worldly governments, or the dark agendas of wicked principalities and powers, God sees all. Let no action or thought which crosses our minds go unattended, or be allowed to take root, without our consideration of Him who sees all things.

The crafty thoughts of Judas, or the bravado of Peter, unaware of his own human weakness, were all the same to Jesus. He was not carried away with the pomp and praises upon entering Jerusalem for He knew well the hearts of all men. When many were believing in Him after seeing the miracles, Jesus remained unmoved.

“But Jesus did not commit himself unto them,
because He knew all men”
John 2:24

It is in our heart of hearts that the issues of life are determined. We must know that the hidden intentions and actions which we may hide from others are open and unveiled to Him. Authenticity is the result of those who know this powerful truth and order their steps aright. They are ever “bringing every thought captive”.

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him…”
2 Chronicles 16:9

Those who walk rightly, think rightly, and whose actions are purposed to bless Him, will know of His favor for “thy Father which seeth in secret Himself shall reward thee openly” (Matthew 6:4)

“Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.”
Psalm 24:3-4

Purity of heart is to be free from selfish agendas and hypocrisy.

“Blessed are the pure in heart
for they shall see God”
Matthew 5:8

“For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested;
neither was anything kept secret, but that it should come abroad”
Mark 4:22

PODCAST – Strong Meat

PODCAST

Strong Meat

 

Strong meat belongs to YOU and the way you receive that strong meat is by having your senses exercised to discern between the teachings of men and the teachings of the Spirit. We must walk in the Spirit of truth in order to discern the difference between what men teach and what the Spirit teaches.

Truth is the greatest blessing, but it comes with great accountability. Any truth that is not walked in, any truth that doesn’t exert its power in my heart, I am accountable for that. It’s critical the things we hear, but it is more critical what we DO with what we hear! The more God communicates His truth to you the more He requires you to walk in it.

“For unto whomsoever much is given,
of him shall be much required”
Luke 12:48

PODCAST – Your Own God

Hear HIM!

“God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world” (Heb 1:1-2)

In times past God spoke through men, but now in these last days, He is speaking by His Son, in and through YOU! The five-fold ministry is to bring YOU into your unique ministry, to develop and add YOUR voice to THE VOICE of many waters that YOU should become HIS VOICE to others.

God has already apportioned to each of us a mighty deposit of His Spirit, but we don’t enter into it by prayer, but by obedience. God has already given you the land, but now says, “My land is not to be talked about, My land is to be walked about!”

The New Fellowship

The New Fellowship

The New Fellowship

“Then thou shalt see, and flow together,
and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged”
Isaiah 60:5

There is a seeing in God which precipitates a flowing and a fellowship far beyond the words of men. It is a flowing in the very river of God. It is the nature of water to flow together as little rivulets flow into streams and streams flow into rivers and the rivers eventually empty themselves is into the ocean. So must it be for those whose flow is the result of seeing our majestic God. Jesus cried out in the full measure of His purposes for mankind…

“Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘
Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water”
John 7:38

The river being the revelation of the believing, the believing is the power of seeing Him “who is invisible”. The flowing together of the true ones in Christ is effortless and spontaneous as He quickens the life within, For Christ Himself is the fountain and the Spring from which all life flows. They who walk with Him, live in Him and abide within the wonder-giving flow of His bounty cannot but “flow together” in His Goodness.

In our seeing Him comes the substantive ministration of a fellowship filled with repentance, cleansing and exhortation. Notice the process of those who walk with God… “Seeing”, “flowing together” and by such flowing we touch the “fear of the Lord” and the “enlargement of our hearts”! Who cannot but be drawn into such depths where in touching “the Holy” we find our hearts enlarged by a greater seeing and touching of Him. May we not settle for associations which stir not the heart nor breathe the fire of Him into the altars of our hearts.

There is even now in this Day a new dynamic of an interaction that is free from the mundane and pedantic words of men which is ignited by the seeing of Him.

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim*
Joel 3:18

It is into the valleys where those who know of this flowing together shall reach out by the love of God into the world around them. There is a fountain ready to break forth from the House of the Lord which shall flow into the valleys of mankind, a flowing which will bring men and women hope of a salvation that sets the captives free and brings a song of joy in the place where despair abounded. This seeing of Him prevents the stagnation and impotency of former things, because it is fresh and living with the Light and Life of Christ Himself.

God’s Word is calling men and women out of the old ways, the dead ways and the stagnant ways to begin to see Him anew in order to discover the flowing forth of a New Day and to touch the fellowship that comes from the awe and fear of the Lord.

“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
Isaiah 43:18-19

True fellowship is the result of walking in the Light as HE is in the Light (1 John 1:7) and in its influence His people begin to arise to contend for their very life in God. There is an excitement, there is a land to be conquered and a freedom to be won! It is the Day of rising up in the hope and life of Christ Himself!

*Note: (shittim refers to the acacia tree and in type speaks of the love of God towards man… used in the tabernacle, the burning bush and above all the crown of thorns which Christ was pierced by the mockery of the world)

Shittim speaks of change and new things in God. It is the burning bush where God meets Moses and begins to prepare him for the deliverance of Israel. It was at Shittim where Moses delivered his farewell speech and final blessing to the people of God (Deuteronomy 31 — 33) and Joshua was set forth as Moses’ successor (Deuteronomy 31:14–29; 34:9).

There is a change coming which is even now beginning to flow from the mountain tops to those who feel the stirring of a new grace touching the hearts of those in whom the Light of Christ is breaking forth. It is by a new vision that the new flowing of fellowship is rising! Men and women are awaking from their slumber and lethargy to realize the paralysis of a faithless faith and are being challenged to rise up and walk in the New Day of the Body of Christ.

And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it…”
Isaiah 2:2

“If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” (Phil 2:1-5)

Walking in God

“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” (John 17:21)

As your walk with and in God deepens, He begins to deposit of Himself in you that you might minister out of this deposit to others, and obedience is the path to confidence.
