As the preceding prophetic posts for 2015 all indicate, those who are walking in intimate relationship with Father, Son and Holy Spirit are going to experience great and magnificent things in this New Year. But there is also a clear warning to those who refuse to embrace the Kingdom of God here on earth as it is in Heaven. Patricia King says, “Tumult, shakings, and turmoil will fill the earth, and the Word and ways of God will be challenged on many fronts. BUT those who stand on My Word and live by My promises will be blessed beyond measure.”
How to Stand on His Word and Live by His Promises ~
Here are the three basic tools needed to stand on His Word and live by his promises. If one begins with these three, all the others promises He makes us throughout His Word, both the written Word and the spoken Word, will come through faithfulness and continued pursuit of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
1. You must be born again – John 3:3 “Jesus answered him (Nicodemus), I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that unless a person is born again (anew, from above), he cannot ever see (know, be acquainted with, and experience) the Kingdom of God.
2. You must receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit ~ Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you…”
3. You must choose to receive the impartation of the Father’s love ~ John 17:26 “Jesus says of the Father, I have made Your Name known to them and revealed Your character, and Your very Self, and I will continue to make [You] known, that the LOVE which You have bestowed upon Me may be in them [felt in their hearts] and that I [Myself] may be in them.”
The late Jack Winter said, “Beyond the experience of being born again through trusting Jesus as Savior and receiving the infilling of the Holy Spirit, the Father’s love can be supernaturally imparted bringing a whole new experience in God. The ultimate goal of the entire Bible story is living in the Father’s love.”
In 2015 we now stand on the brink of incredible challenges AND incredible miracles and blessings. We can choose to live in the world of tumult, shakings, turmoil and fear OR we can choose to live in the Father’s matchless love for each of us. I’ve lived for years in the former. Today I am blessed to live hour by hour and day by day in the latter. THERE IS NO COMPARISON! Which will you choose for the New Year?
