I heard, “The full manifestation of The Revival is upon you!”
Yes, Gleanings from The Book of Galatians
We saw in our last discussion as the apostle became ferocious against these false brethren trying to turn back the hearts of the Galatians from continuing in The Grace of God, to The Law, saying whosoever he be he shall bear his Judgment.
Then we hear;
“And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased,” Galatians 5:11.
The most persecuted apostle of all time is the apostle Paul. Observe this statement, “If I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution?”
The preaching of circumcision is the preaching of The Law. This the apostle was highly against, which is the major reason for persecution.
This kind of persecution comes from religious people. They will fight to the death to stop you from dethroning their self-made religion.
Paul preached The Free Grace of Christ. That a man is justified by faith in Christ alone. Qualified for every blessing by that blood and nothing else. Hence, we have to live by faith in Christ alone and not by works of The Law. This is offensive to many.
On one of the accounts of his persecution, we hear them say this of him;
“And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with one accord against Paul, and brought him to the judgment seat, Saying, This fellow persuadeth men to worship God contrary to The Law,” Acts 18:12-13.
Observe the last statement, “This fellow persuadeth men to worship God contrary to The Law…”
This is the offence of The Cross. It defies the self-righteousness and the wisdom of men.
The preaching of The Cross is to persuade men to worship God by Christ, to assist men to lean on The Grace of God, rather than The Law, which is offensive to religious minds.
I love it when I am persecuted. To me, it is a mark of quality. A proof the scriptures are fulfilled in my life.
My concern is the flock, those not yet deeply rooted in Christ. Which was the reason Paul made this next statement;
“I would they were even cut off which trouble you,” Galatians 5:12.
Its a dangerous road to trade on. Paul prays for the destruction of those hindering the Galatians from being established in Christ. Praying they should be cut off entirely from Christ.
Then we hear him admonish;
“For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another,” Galatians 5:13.
O’ we are called unto liberty — into total freedom in Christ, where our consciences are purified by The Blood of Jesus. No more guilt and condemnation.
Where we are free from servitude to sin, free from the bondage of The Law, free from Satan, free from every custom that would put us back into bondage.
Now the exercise of our freedom is made manifest in outward matters. Where we were in bondage to the lust of the flesh, we manifest our freedom by reigning over the desires of the flesh and not using our liberty as an occasion to sin.
Where we were selfish and hating one another, living in unforgiveness, we have been set free to love unconditionally even as God has loved us.
Beloved, you are free, let your freedom be manifested through your Father’s nature of love!
Let the world see you are set free from all the bondage they are in.
In an encounter with The LORD, I saw this Christian in a new Church. It was as though they had packed into this Church recently. Miracles became the order of the day.
I saw people ‘slain in The Spirit’ even during preaching, and I saw the power of God move rapidly. Miracles were happening unprecedentedly, as the Church grew so fast it was unimaginable for many.
It looked too sudden, as I heard people say, “The church building was yet to be completed, but people filled it to overflow.” There were multitude of people in this building.
As I saw this, I felt The LORD say, “It is now coming in. The full manifestation of The Revival is now upon you.”
I was led to;
“I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass,” Isaiah 48:3.
“And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: For I, saith The LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her,” Zechariah 2:4-5.
Then The LORD said, “It is now coming in, the full manifestation of the revival is now upon you.
I have declared The Great Harvest. My Word has gone out of My Mouth and now, I AM doing a sudden work upon Zion as I fulfill My Word.
In an instant I AM bringing these to pass. The sons of Zion, I AM multiplying — multitudes of men will dwell in My Church, even as towns without walls.
I AM filling you with My Glory, wealth and prosperity. I AM bringing to Zion in abundance. The hour of greater Kingdom Manifestation is upon you.
Miracles unprecedentedly, Glory beyond what you have ever experienced, for I AM the wall of Fire round about you and the Glory in your midst.”
Blessings in Christ,
