We invite you to receive this Word in your spirit in this edition of:
The Pastors' Corner
Our mandate in writing this column is to encourage God's people to do AND be all that God has ordained and called us to be.
We have been asked if we were going to submit a new edition of The Pastors' Corner. However, we have found it to be quite difficult to declare anything different than what is already written here. It's not that I am procrastinating in writing a new edition of the Pastor's Corner. The truth is each and every time I take a look at this message, I hear a word in my spirit that says "this word is still the same. This is still the message for TODAY!"
I looked at it again today and I hear the same thing. It is the Word that God is wanting declared in our spirit for this season - still!! Perhaps it's because we still don't have it! Perhaps it's because we're still walking this Word out! Perhaps it's because we haven't quite taken hold! Perhaps it's because we still need to fully recognize who we really are! It is a Word that continues to resonate in my spirit and we are mandated to declare this unto you....
In this hour, there is a clarion call extended to each of us who professes that we are in right standing with God. If we say we know HIM and are in fellowship with HIM, then there ought to be some (outward) signs. What we 'say' is in us ought to be coming forth out of us! If we say the love of God is in us, then that love is to be demonstrated through us in the earth! If we say that God is the Author and Finisher of our faith, then we need to be a people who does not bend or buckle under pressure! We need to show forth the power of God to those who don't believe.
The scripture declares in I Peter 2:9-10 "BUT ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of HIM who hath called you out of darkness into HIS marvellous light: which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy." GOD has taken the time and demonstrated His great love to choose me and you...when you and I both know we weren't worthy of HIS choosing and He didn't stop there. The awesome thing about God is that He even chose us while we were in our mess! He then hand-selected us to be a part of His Kingdom and in His royal priesthood as kings, queens; His daughters and sons of Zion; able to put on priestly garments and be a generation of people who will stand set apart - head and shoulders above the norm - and show this dark world a glimpse of who our Father is! It's time for us to rise to the occasion!!
Men and women of God, we've been sitting far too long! It's past time for us to awaken from our slumber! So much to do...so little time! Will you get busy about our Father's business? Will you stop making excuses about what's wrong in your world and start moving into the things God has called you into? Will you stop procrastinating and stop sitting on dreams and visions that God has conceived inside of you? Will you allow these God-given truths to become self-evident in your life? Arise! Arise! For now is the acceptable time! We have to get busy; the night is far spent. It's time for us to stop talking and start doing! There is a nation that awaits your arrival. You've kept them waiting far too long!! Take your royal entrance into the Kingdom of God and allow God to catapult you into your destiny!
