Great and Mighty Things

“I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not.”—Jeremiah 33:3.

fog Cloudy-Mountain-2HERE are different translations of these words. One version renders it, “I will shew thee great and fortified things.” Another, “Great and reserved things.” Now, there are reserved and special things in Christian experience: all the developments of spiritual life are not alike easy of attainment. There are the common frames and feelings of repentance, and faith, and joy, and hope, which are enjoyed by the entire family; but there is an upper realm of rapture, of communion, and conscious union with Christ, which is far from being the common dwelling-place of believers. We have not all the high privilege of John, to lean upon Jesus’ bosom; nor of Paul, to be caught up into the third heaven. There are heights in experimental knowledge of the things of God which the eagle’s eye of acumen and philosophic thought hath never seen: God alone can bear us there; but the chariot in which He takes us up, and the fiery steeds with which that chariot is dragged, are prevailing prayers. Prevailing prayer is victorious over the God of mercy, “By his strength he had power with God: yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto Him: he found Him in Beth-el, and there He spake with us.”

Prevailing prayer takes the Christian to Carmel, and enables him to cover heaven with clouds of blessing, and earth with floods of mercy. Prevailing prayer bears the Christian aloft to Pisgah, and shows him the inheritance reserved; it elevates us to Tabor and transfigures us, till in the likeness of his Lord, as He is, so are we also in this world.

If you would reach to something higher than ordinary grovelling experience, look to the Rock that is higher than you, and gaze with the eye of faith through the window of importunate prayer. When you open the window on your side, it will not be bolted on the other. C. H. Spurgeon

Looking For Greater

Looking for Greater in 2014

Dear Church and Body of Christ,
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” (John 14:12 KJV)

The Church has been in a holding pattern since the latter part of the Church Age; not fully understanding the authority and power that Jesus has released in the hands of the Church and the fully ordained authority of the Kingdom of God in the Earth.
The goal is to move the Church into the will of God; to train and notify the Body of Christ of its inherited rights promised by the word of God.

As we go throughout the years, we need to start LOOKING FOR GREATER in every part of our lives, our health, finances, testimony and our tests. Our ministries need to be greater, and even our walk with the Lord. Our faith needs to LOOK FOR GREATER and our giving needs to be GREATER. In worship and praise, it also must be GREATER, understanding that God has given us the Keys to the Kingdom and access to the resources of the Kingdom of God. Listen to God’s Word.
” And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:19 KJV)

The Keys to the Kingdom

1. Believe in God; 2. Faith – Work Your Faith Because Faith Works; 3. Radical Obedience – Obey God Radically (change now); 4. Grace (unlimited) – Walk in His Amazing grace (favor); 5. Speak what God says – Speak and only hear what God speaks in your life; 6. Love of God – (all-powerful) – Operate only on the Love of God and let it motivate you to move; there is nothing stronger than the Love of God.

2014 is the year of double portions, blessings, maturity, and growth, and we as members and partners of A More Excellent Way Ministries Worldwide must look, search, hunt, and track down GREATER because Jesus said that it is Ours.

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV)

Be blessed in 2014.

Psalms 118

Blessings and greetings in the name of our Holy God.  How wonderful it is to know who God is, and in those moments of despair receive a reminder of how great and wonderful He is.

The Holy Spirit instructed me to share this scripture today.  May it blessed you this day.

Psalms 118 (NKJV)
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.

2 Let Israel now say,
“His mercy endures forever.”
3 Let the house of Aaron now say,
“His mercy endures forever.”
4 Let those who fear the Lord now say,
“His mercy endures forever.”

5 I called on the Lord in distress;
The Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.
6 The Lord is on my side;
I will not fear.
What can man do to me?
7 The Lord is for me among those who help me;
Therefore I shall see my desire on those who hate me.
8 It is better to trust in the Lord
Than to put confidence in man.
9 It is better to trust in the Lord
Than to put confidence in princes.

10 All nations surrounded me,
But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
11 They surrounded me,
Yes, they surrounded me;
But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
12 They surrounded me like bees;
They were quenched like a fire of thorns;
For in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
13 You pushed me violently, that I might fall,
But the Lord helped me.
14 The Lord is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation.

15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation
Is in the tents of the righteous;
The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.
16 The right hand of the Lord is exalted;
The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.
17 I shall not die, but live,
And declare the works of the Lord.
18 The Lord has chastened me severely,
But He has not given me over to death.

19 Open to me the gates of righteousness;
I will go through them,
And I will praise the Lord.
20 This is the gate of the Lord,
Through which the righteous shall enter.

21 I will praise You,
For You have answered me,
And have become my salvation.

22 The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
23 This was the Lord’s doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.

25 Save now, I pray, O Lord;
O Lord, I pray, send now prosperity.
26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
We have blessed you from the house of the Lord.
27 God is the Lord,
And He has given us light;
Bind the sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar.
28 You are my God, and I will praise You;
You are my God, I will exalt You.

29 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.

Blessed is our God. His mercy endures throughout all generations. Rest in the knowledge that our God is good, and He will never leave us nor forsake us.
