Your Sphere Of Influence

Your Sphere Of Influence

Where is the sphere of influence for your ministry? Stay faithful to it. There are so many ways that the Lord can fulfill His promises in your walk with the Lord. You may have been called to be a prophet to the nations. The Lord will fulfill that promise to you according to the wisdom of the Lord,…according to abilities He has been developing in you while He is fulfilling that promise.
You may feel you are called as a prophet to the nations by traveling to other countries to speak the Word the Lord gives you as you are heading to the destination. Or even not until the time you actually get there. Or giving you a message as He prepares your heart over a period of time.
But there are other ways that the Lord can use you as a prophet to the nations. God’s ways are far above our own ways. What we may interpret as one means of fulfilling His calling on your life, may actually involve many means of the promise coming together in your life
You more than likely realize that a river is a river because of water being collected together to travel down a wide channel in the ground. But you need to recognize that there are tributaries that have emptied into that channel to collectively form the river that is flowing with much greater power down river than there is upriver.
God has been preparing you for your calling for far longer than you realize. He has been collectively developing you for the message and style of delivery in your life in ways that are higher than you could ever ask or imagine. For He states in Isaiah 55: “For My ways are higher than your ways. and My thoughts are higher than your thoughts. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so much higher are My ways than your ways, and My thoughts higher than your thoughts.”
Prophet to the nations can include ministers coming from other countries to preach at your church, and while they are in the service they may hear you speaking prophetically into their lives that will confirm the message the Lord gave them to speak in your church, before they even get to preach.
Prophet to the nations can include an international convention taking place in your home church where you are participating in the convention, and the Spirit of the Lord has given you a prophetic message for those who have come from other countries.These ministers will take that message home with them and see that Word Of The Lord come to pass in their own countries,
Again, “My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts are higher than your thoughts.”
Scripture states that “Prophecy is not given for any private interpretation, but holy men of God spake as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”
The River of The Word That Is Sent is coming together, collectively, and it is becoming more and more powerful as time goes on. The River of the Word That Is Sent will carry you along by the Holy Spirit. And The Word That Is Sent “Will not return to Me void, or cancelled out, but will accomplish the purpose for which I sent it, says the Lord”

You Have The Spirit Of Life

You Have The Spirit Of Life.

There is power in the Name of Jesus. He breaks the chains that bound you. He breaks the yoke of the oppressor from your shoulders. He breaks the bands of wickedness that kept you strapped to your past. He has broken the hold your enemy had on your future when you felt you were destined to fail. Now you can do all things through Christ Who strengthens you. Whom the Son has set free, he is free indeed. Because He lives, you have life .Because He lives, you have a future and hope You have the Spirit of life that is in Christ Jesus, and you are free from the law of sin and death..
“I have seen your ways, and I will heal you, says the Lord.”

Timing Is Of The Essence

The timing of the Lord’s working and speaking in your life is when He sees how effectively He has prepared you for the demonstration of the Spirit and Power. At no other time will the effective working of His mighty power impact you in such a way as to bring you not only into submission to His Holiness, but the continuing of making you aware of your calling as well as His Presence.
The term “timing is of the essence” is taking on a greater meaning because of the effectual working of His mighty power toward those who believe. For the steps of a good man are ordered of the Lord, and He takes great delight in doing this.
As a father who has raised three children, I have certainly seen the effect of being a blessing to my children, having seen the joy on their faces when when I did something with them.
There is going to be a great awakening coming into your life when the Spirit of the Lord moves in such wonderful ways, and the Father sees the joy and tremendous lifting in your believing heart because the Holy Spirit is fulfilling what Jesus said He would do.
Jesus said: ” Everything that the Father has is Mine; and the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My Name, will take from what is mine and show it unto you.”
There will be the demonstration of the Spirit and power so that your confidence will not be in the wisdom of man but in the power of God.

Thomas Downes

Impeccable, Irrefutable Timing.

Impeccable, Irrefutable Timing.

There is a magnificent skill or ability that has been developing within your spirit that is going to shake and expose every intent that has been stacked up against you by the adversary. You are going to be extended, and expansion is about to take place in your walk in the Spirit. The same Holy Spirit that prompted Jabez to pray “Lord expand my boundaries, and enlarge my coasts, that it will go well with me and not cause pain”, He .is going to expand the vision you have been seeing, and bringing to pass successively, item after item, with such impeccable, irrefutable timing.
There is nothing to difficult for Him
“They that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as the eagle. They shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
“In demonstration of the Spirit and Power.”

The Lord Your Victory

The Lord Your Victory

There is a thirst quenching river that I call “The Word That Is Sent.” It Flows ” not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord.”. It is the Rhema Word that is giving life to the lifeless, hope to the hopeless, and healing to the pain of your heart and your life. And it is filling the hole that has left.you in despair.
It is the repairer of the breach, and the restorer of paths to dwell in.
This “Word That is Sent” is giving you a whole new testimony, for the testimony of Jesus Christ is the Spirit of Prophecy. It is setting you upon the Rock from which this river flows.
It is meeting you in the driest of times, even in the midst of those who can’t comprehend the length, the depth, the width and the height, neither do they know of the love of Christ, that surpasses knowledge, For He is your hiding place, and He is surrounding you with songs of deliverance..
The Spirit of the Lord will never leave you. His love for you will never fail you. You will always have the river that never runs dry, for where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom..
He will keep revealing to you that Jesus, “The Word that became flesh”, is becoming, more and more, “The Lord, Your Victory.”..

You Seek And Search What Is Clean

You Seek And Search What Is Clean

If you are hungry, you would eat what is clean and fresh, wouldn’t you? If you are thirsty, you would drink what is pure and clean, wouldn’t you? Now, why would you labor for that which doesn’t satisfy? Why would you spend your money on that which is not bread? Come and delight yourself in Me, says the Lord, and I will show you what is best for you. I will show you the richest of fare.
I have been calling you to the righteous path. I call you to the pure waters that flow from My Presence.
Pure water that is not contaminated, or polluted will satisfy the thirst of you physical body. But the pure water of My Word That Is Sent will purify and satisfy your believing heart. Food that is not washed can contaminate you with disease that can ravage your physical body, but I call you to eat that which is good.
The Word I give to you is fresh revelation of the intent of My Heart toward you. I am the Lord Who heals you. I am the Lord Who Sees and the God Who Knows. I am the God of all flesh and there is nothing too hard for Me.Therefore know that I have seen your ways, and I will heal you when you seek Me and search for Me with all of your heart.
You search for clean water, I call you therefore to seek what is cleansing to your heart and mind. You seek clean food, therefore seek Me for the Meat of My Word and the Glory of My Presence. You seek out the smallest of things to have and to hold as something to collect. I will seek out those things that seem to be of little significance to you, but to Me they cause a stumbling that will keep you tripped up in your walk with Me. For I have seen your ways and I will heal you.
Therefore My Child whom I love, present your body as a living sacrifice holy and acceptable to Me; it will be accepted as your worship. Do not be conformed, or follow after the patterns of this world. But be transformed by the renewing of your mind by the Word I Have Sent. so that you will be proving what the perfect will of God is, with the way you live. For I am your shield and your exceedingly great reward, says the Lord.
