This past week has been another week of fresh revelation and impartation. Hallelujah! On Tuesday morning at McPrayer, the Lord spoke to us about how important it is to Him that we recognise and declare that He alone is the Creator of Heaven and Earth. Revelation 4:11 says,
"You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being." (emphasis mine)
The Lord showed us how this throws a lot of light on man's sinful desire to explain creation through natural means (evolution) and satan's desire to detract from the glory that only belongs to God, as Lord and Creator!
"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened." Romans 1:20,21
Tuesday's prayer meeting was very powerful once again and the women had a great meeting at Starbucks on Wednesday as well.
On Friday evening Impact! met for an exciting time exploring the difference between the spirit, soul and body as well as the difference between "the natural person", the "spiritual person" and the "fleshly person."
Yesterday's meeting was awesome once again! The Lord is encouraging us to understand and grasp that this is the "year of jubilee" and that it is time for us as His people to reclaim that which has been stolen from us!
Our times of worship in song are "deepening" every week as the Lord is leading us into spontaneous new songs by His Spirit. I praise God for the anointing upon our musicians and how is leading us deeper and deeper into the spiritual realm through our worship!
The Lord is speaking to us about faith and yesterday we saw in the letter to the Hebrews that:
Faith is sure and certain. (11:1)
Without faith we cannot please God. (11:6)
We must believe that God exists. (11:6)
We must believe that He rewards. (11:6)
The Lord is also showing us the difference between natural "faith" that is based on experience and spiritual faith that is based on who God is and what God says. Further we saw that Jesus demonstrated perfect faith. Looking at John 11 we saw how Jesus would explore the will of the Father (11:4), exclaim the will of the Father (11:4,11,23), execute the will of the Father (11:39, 43) and expect the Father to act (11:41,42).
As we begin to exercise true spiritual faith we will see God's glory (John 11:40)!
