2010 - THE GLORY REIGNS
Good Morning Sons and Daughters,
"And as ye go, preach, saying The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give" (Matthew 10:7,8). This was the great commission given to My disciples when they were sent forth into the cities to preach the "Good News."
Take notice that signs, wonders, and healings were to be incorporated in their preaching engagements to draw non-believers to Me.
Signs, wonders, and healings should be commonplace in a believer's life: they are to confirm to the non-believer that there is a loving and merciful God who desires to have an intimate relationship with them through His Son, Jesus. The non-believer understands then that Jesus is "... the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by [him] me." (John 14:6)
Focus upon what I have put before you in this message. My question to you is, Are you doing the works of the disciples? Are you equipped to do the works of the disciples? Have you positioned yourselves in Me to receive My provision to do the works I have set before you to do? Do you know My will for your lives and ministries?
Ponder upon these things.
I love you all......
