The next move of God is coming to the Church.
There is a fresh holy baptism coming to the Church at large in this next season to usher the body into the oneness with Christ, the glorification.
This baptism is to purify the heart to be in agreement with or one with Christ and the heart of the Father. This fire baptism is coming to clean his house from the top to the bottom!
“And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes. Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. This he said, signifying what death he should die,”John 12-23-33
There are some things you can only get in the fire!
The greatest thing that could ever happen to the Body of Christ is actually being reduced to Christ through the fire baptism.
When you realize you must decrease so that he alone can increase, then and only then will you become one with his heart and then can Jesus actually work through you to do the real will of the Father.
“Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?”John 18:11.
“He must increase, but I must decrease,” John 3:30.
Sadly people today think promotion in ministry is a big name, a big ministry, a big platform where they can be seen and heard of men, where they can be known by all.
For they love the praises of men more than the praises of God. Few are willing to follow Christ and walk the path Jesus designed because this path/cup entails the sufferings with Christ.
Fact is if you are not willing to drink of this cup and be baptized with His baptism you can in no wise reign with him.”
“For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God,” John 12:43.
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us,” Romans 8:18.
“But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father,” Matthew 20:22-23.
“If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us,” 2 Timothy 2:12.
God is not concerned with your name being out there or how big your ministry is becoming.
He is concerned with his will being done which is to see the hurting and the lost find Christ, to feed the hungry, to visit and heal the sick, to let the oppressed go free, to set at liberty those that are bruised, to proclaim the acceptable year of Christ and to comfort all those that mourn.
“The Spirit of the LORD God is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified,” Isaiah 61:1-3.
To minster to the needs of others is to serve and that is what real and true ministry is.
To be led by the Spirit is the true sons and daughters of God.
It will take a fresh baptism for the Church at large to be purified and prepared for Him to fill their temple in order that His true will and purposes can be accomplished!
“But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!” Luke 12:50.
“Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: and he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness,”Malachi 3:1-3.
For many it will be a rude awakening but, I tell you Christ and he alone will be lifted up and glorified in this hour and that within his true saints who did not try to go around the process but, went through the process and endured it.
“When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day,”2 Thessalonians 1:10.
These ones will shine in the true image of the Father, and these ones will be totally misunderstood by the religious minded and their organizations simply because they are not apart of that any more than Christ was when he walked this earth.
This my friends is the next real move of God and will usher in the fullness of Christ, that the will of the Father can and will be done.
While many are gathering together so to speak to seek his presence they are indeed truly missing his true visitation! They are surely gathering together but, not by his spirit!
“Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake. Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD,” Isaiah 54:15-17.
“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: and before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left,”Matthew 25:31-33.
“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: FOR WHEN I WAS A HUNGERED,, and ye gave me meat: I WAS THIRSTY, and ye gave me drink: I WAS A STRANGER, and ye took me in: NAKED, and ye clothed me: I WAS SICK, and ye visited me: I WAS IN PRISON, and YE CAME UNTO ME.”
“Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, LORD, WHEN SAW WE THEE (visitation) an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? WHEN SAW WE THEE a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or WHEN SAW WE THEE sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, YE HAVE DONE IT UNTO ME,” Matthew 25:31-40.
“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: for I WAS A HUNGERED,, and ye gave me no meat: I WAS THIRSTY, and ye gave me no drink: I WAS A STRANGER, and ye took me not in: NAKED, and ye clothed me not: I WAS SICK, AND IN PRISON, and YE VISITED ME NOT. Then shall they also answer him, saying, LORD, WHEN SAW WE THEE an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, AND DID NOT MINISTER UNTO THEE?”
“Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch AS YE DID IT NOT TO ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE, YE DID IT NOT UNTO ME. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal,” Matthew 25:41-46.
How did you treat the LORD when He visited you and your Church?
Or did you miss the entire visitation all together while you were busy doing your own thing, or building your own name and kingdom out of your own selfish religious ambitions?
Let me clarify here so that none gets confused. I am not talking about a few religious good deeds just to be able to say you done something, to be seen and heard of men for anyone can do that.
That kind of stuff is nothing more than selfish religious ambition that has a heart seeking vain glory that is rooted in pride and is demonic according to the scripture!
It is not pure religion and there is a big difference in the two although they can look similar from the outside perspective.
I am speaking about doing the real will of God, out of a pure heart, with right motives because you truly love people and, you truly understand the will of the Father.
I am speaking about really being about your Fathers business!
I am talking about laying your whole life down for his purposes to be accomplished in the earth!
“Let nothing be done through strife or VAINGLORY; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves,” Philippians 2:3.
Many need to ask themselves these kinds of questions and do some real heart searching before they hear Him say these words to them; Many will say to me in that day, LORD, LORD, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock,” Matthew 7:22-24.
This next move of God will purify the heart of the Church and God alone will be glorified!
