5th August 2016 (10.01) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio
DO YOU TRULY BELIEVE THAT THIS ALL POWERFUL LORD JESUS CHRIST WANTS HIS CHURCH TO BE AS WE SEE IT TODAY?
Well, there are many Christian Leaders who need awaking to the truth!
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’
Anyone with an ounce of brain can understand these verses spoken by the Lord Jesus himself. So what is the cause of v23 not resulting in lots of proven testimony?
Cause 1. Christ’s Church is His spiritual body here on earth and not every Christian Church Leader is a member of that body. [John 14:24]
Cause 2. Some of the Leaders within His spiritual body have fallen asleep, or their love has grown cold, or the Devil has caused them to become shipwrecked on the sea of life, or are in bondage to the worldly Christian Church, etc.
My Ministry, in the main part, has always been towards Leaders in both Christ’s Body and the unconverted Christian Church – to clarify the second group of Leaders are unconverted Professing Christians.
Shunning the Messengers from Christ
I wish to take one example, as there are many to choose from, from my Testimony that fits this Blog well. I am often sent with a message to a group or church containing both the above groups – Leaders in the Body of Christ and Leaders in the Christian Church.
If you want to see a Spiritual Revival then beware of shunning the Lords’ Messengers. This is a very early video I produced on cheap equipment and during a time of extreme poverty and exhaustion, hence the low video quality. But it represents me well during that period.
Revival may not be Beautiful!
On the 1st March 1996 [7,463 days ago] I was led by the Lord to give a message to a leader of the Birmingham revival team at a meeting held in a city-centre church in Birmingham Christian Centre, Birmingham, West Midlands B1 3QQ. I heard about the meeting when a notice was delivered to a prayer meeting I was at in Balsall Heath.
On the morning of the Prayer Meeting, the Holy Spirit awoke me at 4.00 am and I fell into prayer for the Leaders until 8.00 am. It was obvious to me that Jesus was going to do something important for the Team.
We were invited to gather in the middle of the ring of leaders in order to pray for them. Four of us prayed for a man who was co-leading the meeting. The Holy Spirit stirred us with vigour, and with strong praying, he was given three pictures:
The first was of a sun that was getting brighter. The second was of a valley with bones in it [of which he was given a copy in writing]. The third was of a desert with a flower that was beautiful, and a water hole that was able to give life. The Lord described how they were looking for beauty instead of the water!
That God revealed Himself to us in the person of His dear Son, Jesus Christ, there is no doubt. The messages were clear. Get right with Jesus – be right with each other – confront those who do not want to – get out into the community of Birmingham where the Holy Spirit of Jesus is, and has been for quite a number of years.
After the meeting everyone went into the coffee shop, it was packed with people and the only table with empty chairs was mine. Nobody wanted to sit with me. After a while some asked if the seats were saved. They did look puzzled.
I will continue on this theme of “Christ appearing among his People” tomorrow and God willing through the next week.
Myself and Others who are also in the spiritual body of Christ [John 14:23], are being motivated by the Holy Spirit to gather for the coming STORMS. Those promised to arrive before the return of the Lord Jesus in person.
