Summary: This is a call to become the Church God desires!
As we perpared to enter into the most sacred sunday of the year,
Pemtecost Sunday, I want to write to say a few things:
I belive the Holy Spirit is calling us to lay down doctrinal and
practical differences so the Church as a whole can begin to cry out
as one voice for revival. On the Day of Penecost, in the upper room
they were in "one accord" We need to become one church and no there
the Baptist stream and the Assemblies of God stream. We cant no
longer be the Methodist stream and the Apostlic stream. We must let
the streams of life we all represent become one mighty river flooding
the lands with revival fire. God is not as concerned with our
theology as He is with our love for one another. We need to lay down
things that are not important to salvation. IT doesnt really matter
whether or not you believe in "once saved alway saved" or if you
believe in "speaking in tongues" or not. It really doesnt matter if
you rolled on the floor luaghing in His presence or you stand with
hands lifted him in awe of Him. The last thing John records in
Revelation is this "The Spirit and the Bride say come..." It didn’t
say the baptist bride or the pentecostal bride but simply the Bride.
Thats means we MUST unite as one Bride crying out for the Return of
I believe the Holy Spirit is calling us back to the original calling
of the church: "Tell them that the kingdom is here. Bring health to
the sick. Raise the dead. Touch the untouchables. Kick out the demons.
[The Message] What was God’s will then is God’s will NOW. NOW Faith
is! NOW is the day of salvations. We are to going to the marketplaces
with the power of the Kingdom healing the sick, casting out demons,
raising the dead, and saving the lost. The mantle that was released
onto these men is being released upon the church today. We have a
mandate from heaven to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom. On this
Sunday, we are the Church as the Bride need to ask the Father to
Baptize us with a new anointing to take the gospel of Jesus saves,
heals, and delivers to the nations.
I believe the Holy Spirit is calling the Church to begin to walk in
the bridal idenity it is designed to walk in. The heart of the Father
is passionate in love with humanity. The desire of his heart is for
humanity to return the love to Him. The reason God heals the sick and
frees the oppressed is no groom wants his bride sick and messed up.
God didnt give us a list of do’s and dont’s for any reason except for
he longs for us to become the pure spotless bride for his son, Jesus.
I believe we as the Church need to ask Jesus to get us a revelation
of the Bridegroom/ Bride relationship as he sees it.
TOMORROW is Pentecost Sunday!
