TOUCHING GOD IS OUR PASSION III
ANS ONLINE: CELEBRATION SUNDAY MESSAGE
02 AUGUST 2020
by Dr. Jonathan David
We must all gather in one place. The time is getting nearer and nearer for the Holy Spirit to be poured out. The final outpouring will be upon all flesh.
When people gather together (2 or 3 gathered), God’s Presence will be there. Truth will be there. His Presence is established. We can be a 3 fold cord that cannot be broken. We gather for one purpose, as one people and one mind. We must establish where we are going.
Heaven is invading the earth. All that is natural will be taken out. God will show us how to bring church into Zion so that we can explore the possibilities and ignite our passion once again for God. If we believe in the word, the word will stay in us. Jesus cannot do any miracles because of unbelief. As we worship Him, there will be rain.
The church that He is raising is not individual but a group of people.
When God moves He wants to equalize so that the young and old will receive the same dimension. God wants us to know when He pours out His Spirit at the final outpouring it will be upon all flesh. Sons and daughters will prophesy. Young men shall see visions, old men shall dream dreams. When we are old, we cannot dream anymore because there are too many obstacles.
God wants us to be free to serve Him till the end.
God is opening up the heavens and we can feel it and sense. However, we must flow with it. Some people know what is happening but they are not involved. We must become actively involved so that when it happens, it will equalize the whole church.
God is going ahead of us and we must follow. We must follow. Don’t stay far away and watch in a distance. We must not stand opposite but stand together. That’s why there is peace and justice in His Kingdom.
- Prayer invades the impossible, making the impossible possible.
Prayer must become the portion of our lives.
- Worship around the Throne brings the Kingdom
His Name is here and His eyes and ears are fixed upon the House. Even when we are sick and we are not in the church, we can still be healed. We worship according to the grace of God given to us. Worship is very important because it acknowledges God’s place and our place. Those who worship will be able to enter in deeper. Those who don’t worship will stay away. When there is no worship, there is no rain. When we worship around the Throne, the Kingdom will manifest.
4 After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.” 2 Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne was standing in heaven, and One sitting on the throne.
Aligning and adjustment that needs to be done in worship is to position where we need to be and where God needs to be.
Worship takes us away from ourselves. We will see things in the light we need to see. We must fix our eyes on the greatness of God. We worship because we are worshipper. We don’t become a worshipper just because we worship. God wants us to understand that it is the Father who is seeking us; if we worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. Worship will help us see Him on the Throne. Worship comes with maturity because only sons worship.
When our ways are pleasing with God, even our enemies will be at peace with us. Even our enemies will speak well of us. When Jesus is at the Throne, all things will be subdued.
Worship brings righteousness and we will become like Him.
- Praying in tongues to build the inner man with stature.
16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
The Holy Spirit is our partner, not our competitor. He is training us and teaches us so that we can partner with Him. Our spirit man must be strengthened with power so that we can execute. God starts with our spirit and our inner man. When we pray in tongues, we pray in according to the will of God.
Strengthen with strength in our inner man. When our inner man is mature, Christ can dwell in our heart through faith. When the inner man is weak, we cannot build anything upon it. Even the strength of God cannot come in.
Pray in tongues make us strong. Problem with people is that they don’t pray in tongues long enough until they are strengthen with power. They don’t know how to do it, but we have to learn. Tongues is very useful to strengthen us from the inside. We pray in tongues not just to edify ourselves. We are sending out frequencies. When the Holy Spirit gives us words, something supernatural is happening.
We must go up to the next level. If we are not in the next level, we won’t be able to go the next level after that. Don’t let the Holy Spirit go. Just ask Him to give us words, the right word at the right time. Press on to maturity and become like Christ. In every family we must raise up sons to become true sons.
Praying in tongues build the inner man with stature.
- Explicit obedience releases the prevailing power
Genesis 26:1-3, 12-14
Now there was a famine in the land, besides the previous famine that had occurred in the days of Abraham. So Isaac went to Gerar, to Abimelech king of the Philistines. 2 The Lord appeared to him and said, “Do not go down to Egypt; stay in the land of which I shall tell you. 3 Sojourn in this land and I will be with you and bless you, for to you and to your descendants I will give all these lands, and I will establish the oath which I swore to your father Abraham. 4 I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; 5 because Abraham obeyed Me and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes and My laws.”
There are things that are for us but we cannot enter in because God is waiting for a perfect time and the right time. As long as we walk with Him, we don’t have to be afraid of the fire. Obedience is the key to be blessed. If we obey Him, God will turn everything around. The key is not what God promised us but what we obey. Walk in covenant with God.
12 Now Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold. And the Lord blessed him, 13 and the man became rich, and continued to grow richer until he became very wealthy; 14 for he had possessions of flocks and herds and a great household, so that the Philistines envied him.
The Holy Spirit is the Master Key to unlock all the Scriptures and obedience is the accelerating ingredient. If we listen to what God is saying and do it, something else will open up and we can enter into the field that we have not entered before.
Every promise and prophetic word can be fulfilled. The Holy Spirit unveils His plans for our lives. If we don’t obey, these words won’t come to pass because every promise is conditional and we have to fulfill the conditions.
Isaac was not powerful outside but powerful inside. When we have explicit obedience God will trust us faster and people will trust us. We can become more powerful than the enemies or the non Christians. Not by might, not by power but by My Spirit.
