Crossing Over

Glory to God!

These past 2 weeks the Lord has been speaking to us about preparing, transitioning and crossing over into the fullness of what God has prepared for us. In his message entitled, "Preparing for your Mount Carmel," Alexander spoke to us about how God prepared Elijah for his destiny. Looking at the account in 1 Kings 17 and 18, Alexander showed us the following:
  1. Elijah had a standing with God. 1 Kings 17:1
  2. Elijah spoke God's word. 1 Kings 17:2
  3. God set Elijah apart and hid him until the time was right. 1 Kings 17:3
  4. Elijah learned to depend on God as His supernatural Provider. 1 Kings 17:4,6
  5. God cut away relationships and things that prevented Elijah from drawing closer to God. 1 Kings 17:5
  6. Before Elijah could get too comfortable, God moved him to the next level. 1 Kings 17:7 
  7. The fire that came down on Mount Carmel was the manifestation of the refining process Elijah had gone through! 1 Kings 18:36-38
On Sunday, Aris spoke to us about "Crossing over" and showed us how God takes His people through a process of crossing over in order to take us into the promised land which He has prepared for us. Using the example of the children of Israel and how God took them out of Egypt and led them into the promised land, Aris showed us 4 stages of transition or crossing over that the Lord wants to take us through. We noted that God wants His people to cross over,
  • from slavery and bondage to a place of God's communion, covenant and commands in the wilderness;
  • from a place of false comfort, wrong desires and preconceived ideas about God and His ways, to trusting God and allowing Him to do the unexpected in His way;
  • from looking at the natural and attempting to fulfil God's promises in our own strength, to trusting God despite the circumstances;
  • from trying to fight for victory in our promised land, to fighting from victory in the land God has possesed for us.
We praise God for taking us through His refining process in order to help us to cross over into His destiny for our lives! Hallelujah!
