What am I preparing for?
1Cor29 – the eye has not seen or the ear heard what God has in store for those who love Him
John 14:2 – God has prepared a place for us
The day is coming if not already here where if we are not lead by the spirit (His voice) we will be washed overboard.
We are going to need to be supporting each other.
1Chron12 – they knew the times and what Israel should do.
We need men and women today who know what to do. Who know the character of God, the voice of God.
We are in a season of preparation before a battle. It’s too late to get ready after the battle starts.
Am I willing to prepare the way if the Lord in my community, church, or family.
Mat 11:10. I will send a messenger ahead of you.
Things we need to do:
– be born of the spirit of God with Jesus as Lord of my life in every area
– spend time regularly in Gods Word
– spend time in Gods presence talking to Him and wait for hear from Him
– allow yourself to be sharpened and held accountable by other believers
– walk in a lifestyle of forgiveness
– keep short accounts of what God is doing
– develop a sensitivity to the operation of Holy Spirit
– experimentally walk in Holy Spirit
– walk in obedience to the last thing God told you
The area of Discernment: There are many good people who have been ship wrecked.
1John4. Mat 7:15. False prophets will be recognised by their fruit. 1Thes5:19 2Pet2. False teachers arose in their midst – debauched lifestyles 1Tim4:1. Some will depart the faith and occupy themselves with false teachings.
Spending time in the Word of God and with Him you WILL discern the voice of God.
“No Compromise” – watch out for mixture.
2Kings4:38. When there is a famine in the land, people will eat anything. We do not want to be people of God who will eat anything.
Be careful what you feed yourself on. We need to move more in the prophetic, but what you feed yourself on will come out so be careful.
Adding something you are unfamiliar with can bring deadly consequences. Dont add to the scriptures.
Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. In the verse above, they added the flour (Word of God) and it was able to be dished out to those who were hungry. There was a man of God who knew what to do and many were fed.
How does mixture get in? (article by Peter Horrobin)
– ignorance of the enemy
– unhealed leaders
– false prophecy
There are many counterfeits – recall counterfeit note example.
Be ware of who lays hands on you especially on your head.
