A LIMITLESS REPRESENTATION OF CHRIST!
We’re living in one of the most exciting periods of church history. A time of great change and reformation. A time where God’s people are waking up to who they were always designed to be. A people who have the keys to the Kingdom and are not afraid to use them! – Believing Believers!
"Whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” John 14:12-14 (NIV)
THAT’S WHO WE ARE. CHILDREN OF THE LIVING GOD! REFUSE TO SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS!
Recently I was watching the BBC program “The Secret Life of Dogs.” It traces the origins of the domestic dog. Tests show that every breed, great and small have 99.8% the same DNA as the dangerous grey wolves they were bred from. It’s just that they have been tamed.
A remarkable experiment has been carried out in Siberia over the last 50 years. Soviet scientists sought to domesticate silver foxes through an intensive selection and breeding program.
They found that most wild silver foxes were highly aggressive, but only 1 percent showed neither fear or aggression when humans approached their cage. This 1 percent became the founding generation of a new population of foxes, where only the tamest foxes were allowed to breed. This process was repeated over 50 years. Interestingly, in only 3 generations the aggressive behaviour began to disappear completely. The most radical changes happened in the 8th generation. At this point, silver foxes started to seek contact with humans and show them affection. They even began to wag their tails.
Curiously, their physical attributes also began to change, including the colour of their fur and the size and shape of their limbs and tails.
THE DOMESTICATED FOXES NO LONGER RESEMBLE THEIR ORIGINAL INTENDED FORM.
It made me wonder whether institutionalised church over the centuries, hasn’t also “bred” a tame version of Christianity. A Christianity where safety, predictability, programs and numbers in church have replaced reckless obedience to the Lord. No matter what the cost!
Thankfully, there is a grass roots move across the earth, of God’s people who are daring to say “Yes” to all the adventure, mess, chaos and cost that following Holy Spirit really entails. Men & women determined to live utterly abandoned to the Holy Spirit. Pursuers of His face and presence at any cost. A people returning to our original and intended shape found in Jesus. A grass roots move where people know their God and do great exploits. People who know their true authority.
A NATURALLY SUPERNATURAL PEOPLE.
A COMPANY OF BELIEVING BELIEVERS.
James Maloney in his book, “The Dancing Hand of God” says, “We need to be dissatisfied with our current level of satisfaction. We need Him more. If the power of God is truly limitless, then we should be ever pursuing manifesting a deeper level of that power….We should be an explosive representation of His power on the face of this earth….Let’s face it, if a man who has no arm, suddenly grows an arm in front of a thousand people, it confronts them with the reality of the Father’s love and authority. It forces them to either accept or reject Him. It’s confrontational and it’s real”
I’m tired of hearing the talk, I want to be part of a generation who apprehends all that’s available for us to walk in. A company of people who will dare to believe the Word of God is true and demonstrate the miraculous in ways not seen before. Live a life like the disciples who didn’t “settle” for anything less than all that was theirs. They didn’t a complacent life. They turned the known world upside down!
We need Him more!
