God is looking throughout the entire earth searching for the upright in heart; to them God will prove Himself strong and sure (see 2 Chronicles 16:9). The prophetic trumpets must make a clear call in these extremely crucial days in order to prepare a strong confident leadership (see 1 Corinthians 14:8). In numerous encounters the Lord has summoned me saying; “Sound the alarm!” “Awaken the warriors!” Prepare to advance the KING in His Kingdom.
This is the time to walk with a true goal aim and purpose, not drift about in an endless circle. None desire another forty-year trip around the mountain of misguided human efforts. The good news is that we do not need to wait nor wander any longer in the wilderness; it is time to access the Kingdom of God. Now is the time to move forward, establishing the Kingdom of God in power and true dominion authority.
The Spirit of God is preparing leadership by releasing upon them the anointing that rested upon the sons of Issachar. They had understanding of the time and were aware of what the people of God should be accomplishing (see 1 Chronicles 12:32). The Spirit of Truth is releasing revelatory insights for all who are actively seeking to fully follow God (see Jeremiah 29:12-13).
Let me stress again that the Kingdom of God will not be established by mere words or abilities of men, but by the Spirit of God (see 1 Corinthians 4:20). This type of realistic confidence can only come from genuine union with Christ. It is abiding in His manifested presence that results in our boldness (see Proverbs 28:1).
These days call for followers of Christ to stand firm knowing who they are in Christ and Who Christ is in them (see Colossians 2:9-10). God’s Word declares that in Christ is the fullness of the Godhead and you are complete in HIM. Awake, arise, and grasp your destiny. You have been chosen by God for God to function as a Priest and King in this critical time (see Revelation 1:5-6).
The Lord has issued an ultimate command. It is unmistakably clear – as followers of Christ we are to be bold, brave, and extremely courageous. Scripture declares in the book of Joshua:
“This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:8–9, NASB
The last phrase contains an overwhelming promise: the abiding presence of God. Keep this promise in the center of your heart: “…for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go!” This promise is repeated throughout Scripture and is the foundation of the promise in 1 John 4:4: “Greater is He [God] that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
Our God is truly an awesome God! Prepare to behold Him in a manner not seen in our lifetime. God is at this time responding to the invitation of Isaiah 64:1, “Rend the heavens and come down.”
As an athlete I never liked scrimmage or warm-up. I wanted the bell to ring or the whistle to blow and get the real contest underway. The time has come for the true conquest. The question is: Are you ready?
The conquest – the act of conquering – has commenced. This is neither warm-up nor scrimmage; this is the real thing, the main event. It is not time to hold back. Now is the time to give your all to the Kingdom of God. It is time to arise and advance.
With a spirit of excellence, you must be giving everything for the sake of advancing the cause of Jesus Christ. True Christianity is more about what we do than what we say (see 1 Corinthians 4:20). It is time for action not just mere words.
You are equipped to function in boldness and true authority (see Luke 10:19). You have been given an anointing, an unction to function, which is unstoppable; with Christ in control you are invincible. You are more than a conquer (see Romans 8:37).
Not only has Almighty God called you and I to be brave and courageous, He has commissioned us for these important days. We need to be prepared for conquest that brings about a swift and sure change. God’s plan for His people is the plan of victory, not defeat (see Jeremiah 29:11).
You are called and commissioned to be a radical overcomer. Began to speak these promises over your life. Joel 3:10 states the weak are to say they are strong. A good passage is Micah 3:8, “…truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord!”
Deep within the soul of every true Christian beats the heart of an overcomer. The word “overcomer” suggests winning after a hard struggle. We are to be strong, willing warriors. Never forget we are fighting from victory not for victory. Christ has won the victory; we just move into what He has provided.
Now is the time for the troops of the Lord to volunteer willingly (see Psalm 110:3).
We are to become history makers and world changers. God has determined the exact time of our birth. Truly we are in the Kingdom for such a time as this (see Esther 4:14). Never forget: the Kingdom is in you for such a time as this. Think about it. You had absolutely nothing to do with the timing of your birth. It’s God’s plan. Looking forward to this day, He determined that you would be a great tool in His hands to fashion the Kingdom of God.
God has confidence in you. It is He working in you, both to will and to do His good pleasure (see Philippians 2:13). We discover in Luke 12:32 the Father’s good pleasure is to give us the power of His Kingdom. These are decisive days of destiny. God is calling each of us to arise and take our stand for righteousness.
You are extremely unique. Over seven billion people are alive on planet Earth, and guess what? Not a single person is like you. That is truly unique. Yield yourself anew and afresh to God’s Holy Spirit, be filled with power and purpose, and determine to make the most of these days of transition from glory to glory. Live to hear HIM say, “Well done good and faithful servant!”
