Realising the Kingdom

Hallelujah!

What another awesome week with God! His favour is upon us!

The Lord is speaking to us in all our meetings about who we are in Christ and how to apply His Word to our lives. He is teaching us to proclaim His truth in spiritual warfare and also over our lives so that we live according to the Spirit and not according to the natural (Romans 8:5).

What is particularly exciting is how the Holy Spirit is quickening His Word in us and blessing our people with spiritual revelation, understanding, knowledge and wisdom (Ephesians 1:17). The Lord is revealing truth to us that we are beginning to understand by His Spirit so that we know Him better and are able to apply His Word in His power! Out of this wonderful move of God, our people are writing songs, poetry and are growing in boldness of faith! Here is a precious sample of one verse from a poem written by one of our youth:

There's going to be a strange kind of Light,
in my bedroom at night.
Stay silent my fear,
He is near,
bringing Heaven down
here.
A lady was gloriously saved last week as she approached a couple of our people on the street as they sought opportunities to risk for God's glory. She was asking for money but she received the riches of Heaven in Christ Jesus! Hallelujah!
Yesterday's meeting was exciting once again. The Lord is continuing to release gifts to His children and yesterday He was releasing prophetic song and wonderful revelation by His Spirit. God's Word to us yesterday was that,
God wants us to REALISE His presence and power both WITHIN and WITHOUT!
The Lord wants us to lay hold of and apprehend clearly what He has accomplished for us in Christ Jesus. He wants us to receive spiritual truth by faith and walk in it. It's becoming increasingly clear to us that realising spiritual truth will not come about through our natural minds but only by faith. It is by faith that we understand (Hebrews 11:3)! The Lord is teaching us that just as the Word became flesh, so we must realise or "make real" by faith God's Word which the Holy Spirit quickens in us by revelation. He is showing us that the truth of His presence, love and power is beyond our natural understanding (Ephesians 3:17-20) and can only be apprehended by faith in the power of the Holy Spirit! Glory to God!
Yesterday evening KLF had the privilege of feeding the poor and homeless and providing clothing. Once again the people left blessed and filled (both spiritually and physically) and God's peace rested upon the whole meeting. We are planning a Christmas dinner for the homeless that will be scheduled for the 24th December. This will be a joint venture with Treffpunkt Leben and we are praying for a suitable location to feed 100 - 200 people.
We give God all the the glory for what He is doing in and through Kingdom Life! Thank you Lord!
Quote of the week:
"You will never reach ideal purposes in any way unless you become the living epistle of the Word by the power of the Holy Spirit. You become the living force of the revelation of God, the incarnation of the personality of His presence in the human soul. Then you know that you are His children." Smith Wigglesworth
