This is the season of acceleration. We need to increase the speed – in decision making, obedience to the promptings, impulses of the heart, to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Like a deer that spends its life on watch, in the fear of God, but barely feels the water from afar, quickly runs towards it, so the Lord compares the church with a deer that rises and runs quickly.
Rise up! Don’t get too heavy. Remember the priest Eli, who was so overweight that he fell and broke his back. This is his spirit. Having heard the revelation through the boy, he fell down.
Today there are so many deaf and blind priests on the planet! We have no right to live like other people. We must stop the curse and bring the acceleration, the life of God, into the darkest places.
Change your paradigm, change your habits, don’t delay it, but go change your destiny!
We have discovered one new topic for ourselves: to say what God loves you for. Previously, we didn’t think like that at all: we used to say that we are worthless, useless. But today I don’t believe that anymore. This is a sly mask of false humility. There is such a religious form of pride. When a person says that he is humble – “dust, an insignificant worm” – but he is full of pride.
This is a form of religious pride when we pretend to be humble while being full of pride. We even begin to brag about it. The Lord gave the gift of discerning these religious spirits. No spirits can compare with vile religious ones. They hide behind the mask of God, being themselves religious.
We feel fine saying how reckless we are. But to say what God loves you for is incredibly difficult.
But we tried. And so people began to release themselves and say:
– God loves me because I am faithful.
– And me – for giving my heart to what I do!
– I have a beautiful heart…
So we began to release and realized that we had entered some kind of rift. It’s not just psychology. This is a mirror Christianity – we put everything upside down! The Church taught differently for two thousand years – it released nothingness, but the Apostolic Church releases dignity.
Does God love us because we admit that we are insignificant? After all, He loves us for something!
Find it in yourself and answer this question.
This is not psychology, not philosophy. This is good news! “Look what kind of love the Father has given us so that we can be called and be children of God!”
You can never take such people “with bare hands” – to imposej a sense of guilt on them, for example. A person who is established in the Gospel of the Good News cannot be broken.
I know my worth. I am God’s anointed one. It’s not pride – this is how I attack Satan. Self-esteem came – I know my worth – I am God’s favorite son, I am absolutely accepted into the best rooms of the royal court. This gives me the strength to live and pass through various places and periods of my life – I am accepted forever.
One day, Satan came to Luther with a list of his “unrepentant deeds,” and Luther threw an inkwell at him. They say that this stain on the wall in his house has not yet disappeared.
I don’t want to have anything to do with it – to know how bad I am. It doesn’t give me a position in God. It doesn’t make me stronger. But religion has been doing this for two thousand years: first it covers you with mud, and then it starts scrubbing you.
This is a serious reaction. It must happen. It is the restoration of the apostolic and prophetic ministry. Raising the dignity of the Church of Christ, raising the value of man. How I want to live!
One more thought. Ascend from glory to glory. “We all, with unveiled face …”. How can you behold the glory with a guilty face? If you are guilty, how can you behold with an unveiled face? How can you come to God with an unveiled face if you are “useless”? – Only the one who is completely saved can look like that, he believes with full hope!
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” (2 Corinthians 3:18).
Are you hiding from the mirror? No, you look into it with an open face. And this is how you need to come to God.
We are transformed from glory to glory. Previously, there was a misunderstanding that this was a transition to a renewal.
No! This is not climbing stairs. This starts from the glory.
Gotta catapult into glory. Press the button. Jump today, lightning fast, not when you make key decisions! Start with glory to end with glory!
I remember the testimony of the prisoner Viktor Belykh, he just sat down and spoke without notes, a real prophet of God. He simply said, “You do not teach the people to live holy in order to achieve holiness. But declare him holy, and then teach him to keep it.” But we make it so that we declare the people sinners, and then we call them to ascend the mountain of holiness, because it is so good. Motivational sermons that don’t work. Because this is not the gospel of glory.
Declare a man holy, and then teach him to keep and live in it. It’s a completely different approach. Put a man on top of a mountain and let him live there. And there is no need to put a person at the foot, and then lead to the top. This is what “from glory to glory” means.
This is a different type of preaching. This is a revealed Word, not a moralized one. The problem is that preachers “incinerate” a person, presenting the Father as mean. In fact, they distort His image.
Take the image of the Father. It is always kindness, openness, mercy, strength, protection, and so on. And our image is much meaner. Draw your image of the Father. Some draw such a Father, which is simply unbelievable. This is how you “hold” the people by distorting the image of the Father.
“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him” (Matthew 7:11).
We haven’t heard this yet. We read it, but didn’t hear. This is what we need to do first. In other words, you are saying that the Lord is the same as you.
“These things you have done, and I kept silent; you thought that I was altogether like you. But I will rebuke you, and set [your sins] before your eyes” (Psalms 50:21).
Wrong confession about God distorts the true idea of Him.
Today the Lord wants to exalt. He wants to make this transition – from glory to glory, from the positive.
“He raises the poor from the dust, He lifts up the needy from the ash heap, to make them seat with nobles, and make them inherit the throne of glory; for the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and He has set the world upon them” (1 Samuel 2:8).
He gives the throne of glory as an inheritance. Think of the Throne. My dream is that we all rise. My ministry is for us to rise. But many don’t understand this, they live in humiliation, they have chosen this for themselves because it is easier. It’s easier to sin, and then confess your sins before God. So they loved pork food, dog puddles. We take a different road. I’m looking for the elect who hear the voice of God. I’m looking for those who hit their wings and take off. I realized that Jesus was working with these ones. To this guild is my call today.
“For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and He has set the world upon them.” Lift up God higher! The way you treat Him is not enough. Take Him higher! Sounds strange, I understand, but lift up God! Give Him a new position – exalt God. How is this possible? – It is possible! Because where you keep Him is not worthy of God. As it is written that “they did not glorify Him according to their worth, for this God gave them over to a depraved mind.” Lift up God! Hallow Him higher!
Lift up your neighbor! Lift up each other! Exalt yourself – but not in the way that Jesus says that he who exalts himself will be humbled, but in the way that He loves you.
Those whom He called, these He also justified. I’m justified! Jesus says that those whom He justified, these He also glorified. I am glorified! If God is for us, then who can be against us?
And here is the key – God says, “A glorious high Throne from the beginning, is the place of our sanctuary” (Jeremiah 17:12). How to be exalted?
An astronaut went into open space. How to push it to the moon? He keeps pushing, and flies away himself. You need a base to stand on. And this base is the Throne. He doesn’t shake. The high Throne from the beginning is the place of our sanctuary. It’s not only – I was a sinner, and now I’m holy, I’ve sinned – and now I’m clean, I’ve sinned – and now God has forgiven. Not! Our sanctification is, in a large sense, our enlightenment.
Sanctification of the mind. Sanctification of the heart. Sanctification even of the body. This is how matter is transported through the air. Even with your shoes on you can be carried, with a vehicle that is under you. So matter is transferred. You can even take your brothers by the hand. As in that testimony, when the wall opened up, and those who believed joined hands, got into a drawn boat and sailed away.
Nothing is impossible for God.
The high glorious Throne from the beginning, is the place of our sanctification. That is the core. You need to cling to the Throne.
The Throne. You need to take off from a high place. Not putting down the lower, but raising it up.
We should talk about royal things, but we can’t, so as not to touch the darkness at first. You can’t draw white on white. Black ink is essential. Artists know. You need to blacken someone in order to come out white yourself.
But with God it is not this way! With God – “in Your light we see light”, God has light from light, and not from darkness! With God, one must push away from the light so that there is more light.
I want you to understand: you don’t have to touch the darkness at all in order to reinforce the light. One can live only in the light and only in the light. I am deeply convinced that the one who has grown in grace is the one who doesn’t build contrasts on the negative, but who strengthens more and more in the light.
In general, you don’t touch the filth and impurity in order to affirm the light. Because in His light we see light.
This season the Lord has given me the gift of discerning spirits, namely religious. I can feel acutely that there is a lie against the Gospel. That it is not the gospel at all when a person is negative. Because the Throne has no darkness. I believe that a person grown in grace is a person walking in the light.
Christ said “you are the light of this world.” Growth in grace means acting, speaking from glory. Ascend into glory!
“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne” (Revelation 3:21).
You can sit on the Throne. It’s not something incredible and unattainable. Listen! You can sit there! You can ascend in such a way, be affirmed in such a way, and begin to think and think in such a way as to be completely dissolved and affirmed in the light. Sit there, because this is where you dwell. When you spend a lot of time at the Throne, the Lord will put you on the Throne.
