The land is being stalked.

Posted by appolus on March 13, 2020

Saints, there is a roaring lion that is stalking the land. It is not the virus, it is fear. The question is, aside from all common sense actions, will you deliberately and with faith put all that you are and all that you have into the hands of Jesus? If you make a conscious decision of the will to rest in Him, an act of obedience, then you will have a peace that surpasses understanding. This is quite apart from any loss you may suffer, it will be in spite of any loss you may suffer.

Paul said that he would rather glory in his infirmities that the power of God may rest upon him. Paul had discovered that no matter what his situation was, that the grace of God was sufficient for him. That word sufficient in the Greek is “arkeo” and in this context means to raise a barrier. Can I tell you, that no matter how much the enemy floods the land. the Lord has raised up a barrier and it cannot be penetrated nor over-topped. He is our higher ground.

When we realize this, when we avail ourselves of this, then is the power of the Living God resting upon us for all the world to see. In the midst of our circumstance the Lord Christ is being lifted up and glorified and the power of God is multiplied in our lives. Paul is so full of the power of the living God and the grace that He has found that he can make this incredibly bold claim ” I take pleasure in my infirmities in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”

Glorify God today. Make the decision of the will, be obedient, do not fear but rather rest upon the grace of God which Jesus Himself is sufficient for you and all the world will see His power and He will be magnified this very day.

The power of God resting upon man

Posted by appolus on March 13, 2020

1Pe 5:10  But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

None of us enjoy suffering. That might be something that is common to every man and woman on the earth. We often go to enormous lengths to avoid suffering. It is our natural state. Yet here we see that in the process of being sanctified, there is indeed suffering to be dealt with. How we deal with that suffering is a vital part of the sanctification process. We cannot hate it, we cannot fear it, we cannot run from it and we cannot battle it. Yet that is what most of do. Yet we are not natural men brothers and sisters, we are supernatural. One pastor said that your salvation is either supernatural or superficial. The word superficial is defined as “existing or occurring at or on the surface.” Suffering goes deep beneath the surface. There are many things that we can replicate in a superficial manner, being at peace in the midst of suffering, having great joy despite our circumstances is not one them.

Paul says in Romans 5:3-4 …..but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. Can you imagine that? He glories in his suffering because of what he knows that it is producing. It is producing the very elements that we need to endure and overcome. We are being shaped by the Lord. Resigning our lives into His hands is our reasonable service. A superficial faith cannot abide the thought of suffering or any kind of deprivation. The notion that one could end up in a dungeon whipped to within and inch of our lives and yet still be praising God and thanking God and glorifying God in the midst of all of it rather than begging God to be relieved of our circumstances is an offense to many.

Paul says that the power of God rested upon him as he gloried in his infirmities in 2 Cor 12:10. By the grace of God, His strength is made perfect in our weakness. This is why Paul would rather glory in his infirmities. He was so sold out to the notion of glorifying God that no matter what it took, then he was ready for that. This is the high water mark for us saints. To follow Jesus in such a manner is to have totally abandoned the flesh. Push on in deeper saint, may we decrease and may He increase.
