APOSTLE TALK - Future News Now!
Do not be afraid of doing the wrong right thing!
Listen to God and make a decision!
This message is being written to you whether you are 5 years of age or 105. When I was a little boy, about 10 years of age, I prophesied that men would travel to the moon. No one ever dreamed, or talked about, such a thing happening. I also prophesied that I would be a minister when I grew up. The latter was probably more of a long shot statistically than the former (at least to those who knew me). Many years later both prophecies came to pass. Think BIG and prophesy BIG when you know it is God.
What stirs you? What makes you come to life? In the last edition, The Secret, we talked about spending time in the Word of God. When you do, things will begin to click in your life. God will provide for you and you will be productive.
Change your thinking!
Do not limit yourself by your own thoughts!
Remember the acronym: True Blood Ran At Mount Calvary.
God is NOT old; He is eternally young. He is NOT limited, even by your disobedience.
In 2 Kings Chapter 7 we see the productivity and success of anointed common sense. There was a famine in the land. Also, the Syrian army laid siege to the Israelites in this area. Four (4) lepers were outside the city gates. They were facing death because of famine, just like the other people. But they were also vexed with an incurable disease: leprosy. The king and other people would not allow them to come into the city.
On a certain day the four lepers said to one another, Why are we sitting here until we die? If we say, We will enter the city, the famine is in the city, and we shall die there. And if we sit here, we die also. Now therefore, come, let us surrender to the army of the Syrians. If they keep us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall only die.
When they came to the outskirts of the Syrian camp, to their surprise no one was there. For the LORD had caused the army of the Syrians to hear the noise of chariots and the noise of horses -- the noise of a great army; so they (the Syrians) said to one another, Look, the king of Israel has hired against us the kings of the Hittites and the kings of the Egyptians to attack us.
Therefore the Syrians arose at twilight and fled; they left everything in their camp intact: food, silver, gold, clothing, tents, horses, and donkeys. They even threw away their weapons as they fled.
In 24 hours the economy changed â�¦ literally overnight. It had been prophesied by Elisha the day before (2 Kings 7:1). God found four lepers who had spiritual common sense. As soon as the lepers made a MOVE, God caused the Syrians to hear the sound of a great army.
THERE ARE THINGS THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN IN LIFE UNLESS YOU â�¦ OR SOMEONE â�¦ USES SPIRITUAL COMMON SENSE AND TAKES A MOVE IN FAITH.
THERE ARE THINGS IN YOUR LIFE THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN UNTIL YOU USE SPIRITUAL COMMON SENSE AND TAKE A MOVE IN FAITH.
IF YOU ARE DYING SPIRITUALLY WHERE YOU ARE AT - IF YOU ARE NOT PRODUCTIVE - THEN USE SPIRITUAL COMMON SENSE AND MAKE THE MOVE AFTER YOU HAVE HEARD FROM GOD.
You may be in a situation now very similar to that of the four lepers. You are perishing spiritually where you are. That is, your life is not as productive as God wants it to be. You want BIG things to happen in your life: to reach people around the world for Christ.
TAKE A STEP OF FAITH â�¦ MAKE THE MOVE ABOUT WHICH GOD IS SPEAKING TO YOU.
What do you have to lose? Read the Word of God and LISTEN. Talk to Him and LISTEN. Pray in tongues and LISTEN. Then do what He tells you.
Jesus said, The field is the world. (Matthew 13:38-43) Jesus also taught that if YOU want to get the treasure out of the field, you have to buy the WHOLE FIELD. (Matthew 13:44) If you want to reach China, then you have to purchase the whole field. If you want to reach Iran, then you have to purchase the whole field. Meditate on this!!
Nothing happened until the four lepers took THE MOVE in the right direction.
Nothing happened until the priests of Israel took THE MOVE and put their feet in the River Jordan.
When you take THE MOVE of obedient faith ... then ... the God of Israel will cause things to happen. He will make a way for you!
Do not be afraid of doing the wrong right thing!
The destiny of nations and people groups is hanging in the balance.
Lay your left hand on your head and lay your right hand upon your heart and repeat these three (3) words:
NATIONS ... NATIONS ... NATIONS.
