SPRING FORTH NOW

Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Philippians 2:2-5 The joy of our relationship with Christ is fulfilled as we choose to be His witness, not just in religious settings, but also in our everyday walking around life; making God’s Word flesh, real. The joy we experience because of our relationship with Christ is that we become more like Him, Elevated beyond the status quo of o

I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. Then flew one of the

And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; Revelation 21:10-11 As we are Elevated in the Spirit, God shows us the truth of His Word and promises to and for our lives. Our Elevation is not that we laud over anyone or anything but instead the risen Christ, Lord of life is seen and His power shown in and through our lives. Remember that each and every experience of our lives is an opportunity to reveal God and in revealing Him, He reveals His truth, Word, promises to a

And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. He that

And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. Revelation 11:12-13 Elevate your worship is critical to you being able to navigate life in the Spirit, lifting you above the fray of your circumstances to see and seize God’s promises for your life. It is in your worship, the acknowledgement of God as Lord and Master and despite what your circumstances are He is on the throne of life and

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:1-2 (NIV) The surface of our circumstances will prevent us from seeing and seizing opportunities for us to advance and expand what we have, the promises of God for our lives. As long as we remain on the surface of our circumstances, advancing and expanding is cluttered and blocked from being envisioned. Not being able t

After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. Revelation 4:1-2 The power of our Worship triggers our Elevation beyond what is to what shall be as ordained and prepared by God. We already have the victory over all things, however, the challenge is for us to believe and navigate life’s circumstances to the point of our victory and our Worship opens us up to receive and manage the necessary insight to do so. The chall

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. I Thessalonians 5:21-23 The power of God and His presence in our lives, personified by His Spirit, makes us one with Him and sets us apart for the fulfillment of His promises for our lives, His glory! As you and I decide to embrace the Spirit of God in our lives, we are Elevated from the surface of our circumstances and life’s challenges in which we are reconciled and set apart for God’s purpose and plan revealed in and through us. In the Spirit we

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: An

Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us fro

Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:3-7 The natural position for us all is to be comfortable where we are and only to make adjustments when abso

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Romans 6:4-5 Elevate implies that someone or something has risen from a position that is higher than the one before. In addition, Elevate also implies that the new position, which is higher, is a result of a process in which there is a lifting to a better space. In order for you and I to be Elevated it requires that we engage a process that lifts us to a new life. New life is not just about start

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. Philippians 4:8-9 Our thought life can be controlling of what our actions will be, influencing whether or not we achieve that which is promised to us in the face of life’s challenges. If we think we are defeated or our situations impossible, it can determine our actions, however, we have access t

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Colossians 3:1-4 Our thought life is critical to our ability to Elevate in space and position that lifts us in our thinking by the Spirit in order to navigate life and its challenges toward our promises of life and life more abundantly in all things. It is true that an idle mind is the devil’s workshop; our thought life listless with no purpose or plan to achieve and over

When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person. He shall deliver the island of the innocent: and it is delivered by the pureness of thine hands. Job 22:29-30 The challenges of our lives have come to buffet, separate us from God and His promises for our life and life more abundantly. Just as God raised Christ from the dead, going against the flow of the natural by way of the Spirit, He too wishes to do with you, if you would believe. Believe, declaring and acting in the promises of God, no matter the death, hell, or grave experiences of your life; operating above them and from the perspective that they are not defining, instead the realiz

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 The life we live in the Spirit, Elevates us to a place in which we can be carefree of the challenges and circumstances of our life. Because we have chosen to live not as is but as should be, defined by God, we are lifted beyond the surface of our lives to that which we are becoming. The becoming is undergirded by our perfecting this thing called life and we are better equipped to navigate it because of the Spirit of God that resides withi

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33 The many things of life, including the challenges of life, often are overwhelming and clouds our attention and defuses our energy toward that which we believe should be as ordained by God. It is in the reality of the overwhelming nature of the things of life that we have to make choices about what it is we will devote our attention and energy and to do so making wise and appropriate choices which necessitates a space in which we receive insight. Elevate yourself to a space, position in which you amid all the things of life can make wise and appropriate choices from a place

Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22 The challenges of our lives serves as weights to keep us down and lessen our progression toward the fulfillment of God’s promises. It is hard to think that the challenges of our lives as agents, part of some wider scheme to keep us from God and thus, His Word being made flesh in our lives but it is so. The devil is a deceiver and it is the plot of darkness in our lives to separate us from the light of God. Although it appears that our challenges, circumstances are isolated and they are just byproducts of haters and/or our isolated mistakes and/or shortcomings, it is a part o

You’re cheating on God. If all you want is your own way, flirting with the world every chance you get, you end up enemies of God and his way. And do you suppose God doesn’t care? The proverb has it that “he’s a fiercely jealous lover.” And what he gives in love is far better than anything else you’ll find. It’s common knowledge that “God goes against the willful proud; God gives grace to the willing humble.” So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over.
