In these end times, this is a very crucial message: to surrender ourselves, merge, be trained, grow and function within a spiritual house where God sets us in. Because it will determine our position and existence in the future; whether we’ll become victims of the destruction of the Babylon system, or become those who overcome death in victory!
The problem is, we have become too familiar with the message. Some assume that it’s not too important because they still feel able, and think that it’s much ‘safer’ by living the way most people are living. Some even think that living outside God’s house is much more promising; their future is guaranteed and they could ‘make more impact’ (‘have a name’) out there.
Without knowing, such understanding comes from the life of the wicked who keeps pursuing personal success, position, wealth, and comfort of life. That’s a perverted understanding when receiving the message of ‘becoming renown, respected, and impactful’. Because God’s design for us to be renown, respected, and impactful is far from the design of the wicked!
God wants to bring back into reality His eternal plan, where we will rule and reign the way He does! In the days ahead, we will reorganize the universe by speaking. Yes, by uttering words from our mouths. That’s the way sons of God rule and reign, and restore everything! So different from the ways of the wicked!
Before the days when the government of the sons of God on earth becomes real, those sons of God must go through the pattern set by Jesus and the Father. And that pattern is to stay under the covering of a spiritual parent and function in the spiritual house where He has set us in. This is very decisive!
When we assume that the ‘message’ is a mere ‘guideline’, we will gradually be absorbed into the ways of the wicked. It’s only time when the turmoil ahead will also impact our lives, and we couldn’t experience the reality of the eternal Kingdom of Heaven ruling over the earth!
Without walking in the pattern that Jesus has shown (the pattern of the son of God), it’s impossible for us to be exalted to rule and reign. And without walking in the same pattern, we are actually not pleasing His heart.
Remember, for 30 years, Jesus was under the covering of Joseph and Mary. He emptied Himself to follow their every command. Jesus even gave Himself to be baptized by John – while if Jesus wants, He didn’t need to be baptized, for He is the God of John the Baptist too! When the time comes, because Jesus obeyed in emptiness, the Father in heaven reveals that Jesus is His beloved Son!
Luke 3:21-22 (NASB)
Now when all the people were baptized, Jesus was also baptized, and while He was praying, heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him in bodily form like a dove, and a voice came out of heaven, “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.”
Now that’s humility, the emptiness of self, and explicit obedience – the pattern God has set! Even Jesus obeyed until He surrendered His life on the cross. Remember, Jesus is God. He could simply bring down fire from heaven to destroy His persecutors if He wants! But He emptied Himself, and kept flowing divine life. Even Jesus defended His persecutors before the Father. He said, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34, NASB)
Such is the pattern of heart attitude that we must adopt from Jesus. Before we have a completely empty and humble heart, we will never rule and reign!
Probably we think that we only do ‘small roles’ in our spiritual house (like a carpenter). Maybe we think that our role won’t bring a great impact on this world. True, because it is not aimed to ‘give impact’ anyway; our role, however small, is aimed to RULE AND REIGN TO RESTORE ALL THINGS BY SIMPLY SPEAKING THE WORD! That is much greater than the success offered by this world! And it’s much greater than having ‘an impactful life’! Our impact is way beyond the impact of this world’s successful men!
We are the sons of God! Only His sons could rule and reign! For our Father is the King of all kings!
That’s the reason I truly felt the URGENCY of this MESSAGE: merge yourselves in a spiritual house, follow the flow of life within, function there, obey, be trained in the prayer group, follow the meetings, etc.
When we obey with understanding and joy in our hearts, the time will come when God will transform us into the fullness of Christ! He will exalt us to rule and reign together with Him! #ILoveGod
