Divine Capacity!

Glory to Abba, Father!

This past week has been another awesome and exciting time with God! The Lord is revealing more and more of Himself to us in our meetings.

Yesterday the Lord spoke to us about Divine Capacity - the spiritual ability to receive and to release God's love (Eph. 3:19). Looking at 1 John 4:7-21, the Lord showed us that if we truly know Him, we will love like Him since He is love and as He is, so are we in the world.

Looking at the parable of the lost son (Luke 15) the Lord showed us the nature of His love and how we can choose to enter into that love or stay outside (15:28). We then looked at the account of Jesus being anointed by a sinful woman in Luke 7:36-50 that describes someone who has entered into Divine Capacity because she received God's love by faith and released the abundance of that love on earth.

She gave everything on earth because she received everything from Heaven!

Yesterday evening we had another soup kitchen for the poor and needy - another wonderful opportunity to release a generous spirit which is the fruit of Divine Capacity! We are excited about how people are responding to God's love; how people are "softening"; how trust is developing and how relationships are being built. The people have told us that they love it when we come and are eager to know when we will come again. Yesterday another man gave his life to Jesus and many are asking questions about the Lord! Hallelujah!

We praise God for His revelation to us and how it is affecting our lives and the lives of others for His glory!
