Church Be Still

C. H. Spurgeon

The Church would soon be healed of her sorrows, and delivered from her divisions, if she would for a while be silent; but the voice of a favorite teacher is heard by some, and the voice of another master in Israel is listened to by others, and so God's voice is lost amid the clamor of sects and the uproar of parties. Oh, that the Church would sit at Jesus' feet, lay aside her prejudices, and take the Word in its simplicity and integrity, and accept what God the Lord only declares to be the truth. I invite the members of this church, and urge the members of all the churches to see to this, that we cry unto the Lord for a blessed silence in His presence, till we sit like servants waiting for the Master's word, and stand like watchmen waiting for the Master's coming. Lord send that solemn silence over all Your people now. Words, words, words: we have so many words, and they are chaff, but where is THE WORD that in the beginning was God and was with God? That Word is the living and incorruptible seed. We want less of the words of man, and more of Him who is the very Word of God.

BE QUIET and let Jesus speak. Let His wounds speak to you: let His death speak to you; let His resurrection speak to you; let His ascension and His subsequent glory speak to you; and let the trumpet of the second advent ring in your ears. You cannot hear the music of these glorious things because of the rattle of the wheels of care and the vain jangle of disputatious self-wisdom. Be silent, that you may hear the voice of Jesus, for when He speaks your strength will be renewed. The eternal Spirit is with His people, but we often miss His power because we give more ear to other voices than to His, and quite often our own voice is an injury to us, for it is heard when we have received no message from the Lord, and therefore gives an uncertain sound. If we will wait upon the blessed Spirit, His mysterious influence will sway us most divinely, and we shall be filled with all the fullness of God. Our strength will be renewed, if in silence we yield up to God all our own wisdom and strength. Brethren, I never am so full as when I am empty; I have never been so strong as in the extremity of weakness. The source of our worst weakness is our homeborn strength, and the source of our worst folly is our personal wisdom.

Lord, help us to be still till we have abandoned ourselves, till we have said, Lord, our ways of working cannot be compared with Your ways of working; teach us how to work; Lord, our judgments are weak compared with Your perfect judgment; we are fools, be our teacher and guide in all things. Crush out of us our fancied strength, and make us like worms, for it is the worm Jacob that You will make into the new sharp threshing instrument, which shall thresh the mountain. After this sort shall you renew your strength. Keep silent, you saints, till you have felt your folly and your weakness, and then renew your strength most gloriously by casting yourselves upon the strength of God. More than ever before let your inmost souls be filled with trust in the Arm that never fails, the Hand that never loses its cunning, the Eye that is never closed, the Heart that never wavers.

Be Ready

Carylann Hartley

Be ready! Be willing to move as the Lord shows you. He WILL call to you in the still small voice. Do not expect Him to shout. Be encouraged but know that hard times are ahead for He is making cuts in His diamonds. But remember that He is that one making those cuts to polish and refine you. Do not worry about what will come but look to Him each day and let Him unfold the things that are to take place. Do not try to do things in your own strength for they will fail. Now is a time that you MUST look to Him and hear clearly as many changes are still taking place.

The Church MUST come into unity so that He can perfect that which He has established. Hold tight to the promises He has given you for they will start to take place in a much greater way before this year is over.

To Represent Christ

Pastor Francis Frangipane

And Jesus was going about in all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people. And the news about Him went out into all Syria; and they brought to Him all who were ill, taken with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and He healed them all. And great multitudes" (underscore this in your mind) great multitudes, not just a handful here, "great multitudes followed Him... (Matt 4:23-25)

When Jesus is lifted up, great multitudes follow. By the thousands, people left their cities, their market places and businesses. Great throngs of men, women and children eagerly left their homes and communities to be with Jesus in the wilderness. Such is the power of the Master.

Yet, seeing these multitudes, He departed and went up on a mountain, and after he sat down, His disciples came to Him. Keep this in mind: Not all the multitudes were disciples; only His disciples came to be trained by Him. The multitudes came to be healed and blessed. Some came to be delivered, while others to be encouraged or just loved. His disciples came to Him not merely to be touched, but transformed.

Dear one, not everybody who finds Jesus desires also to become like Him. Multitudes come to receive from Him, but only disciples come to give to Him, to give Him their lives and very life resources so that He can reduplicate his life through them.

To represent Him is His goal with His disciples. Let me rephrase that. We do not merely represent Him; we re-present Him. His living presence must be presented through us. We do more than teach about Him; He teaches through us. He calls us to a higher life than just knowing what He did, as awesome as that is; our call is to reveal who He is. Thus, He calls us His body.

The goal of the body is not merely to remember what the Head once did, but to manifest perfectly the intentions, thoughts and virtue of the Head. The actions of the body ought ultimately to be the living expressions of its Head.

Thus, Jesus saw the vast multitudes and went up on a mountain to begin training disciples. This is so important, my friends, because today Jesus again is seeing multitudes, and again is seeking to train His disciples. This is the reason we have come to Christ: to be trained personally by Him.

We say, "How will that happen?" The Holy Spirit animates Christ's teachings in the Scriptures and makes the words alive, as though Jesus Himself were speaking to us. The main purpose of the Holy Spirit is not to give us gifts, but to lead us into the spiritual presence of our Master, Jesus Christ. Indeed, even the fruit of the Spirit comes from our union with Christ.

Consider: Jesus said, "I have given them My joy . . . My peace." (See Jn 14:27 & 15:11) We do not come to Him with love; "we love, because He first loved us" (1Jn 4:19). He is the vine; we are the branches. The Holy Spirit guides us into all truth; Jesus is the Truth.

There are "varieties of ministries, and the same Lord" (I Cor 12:5). All true ministry arises from a person's relationship with Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit. The Spirit does not just teach; He leads us into union with the Teacher, Christ. He transfers to us the living substance of the person, power and character of Christ.

So through the Holy Spirit, we have a living relationship with Jesus Christ. We are disciples that He desires to raise up, train and empower. He does not care whether you are a male or female, young or old, rich or poor. He is seeking more than your abilities and attainments; He desires your yieldedness and commitment to continue on with Him, even when you fail or when He tests your faith with the illusion of distance.

How does He train me? In a thousand ways, but one principle means is through His living word. When I take my Bible, as I seek to find the heart of God, I begin by kneeling before Him with the Scriptures I am to study open between us. But just because the Bible is open, that does not mean the understanding is open. So I will pray, "Lord, open my mind to Your word." I may read for quite a while, until something God speaks leaps off the page and descends through my eyes into my heart.

At this point I realize that, through the Holy Spirit, Christ Himself is speaking to me. I am not just studying the Bible; Jesus Christ is training me. He is doing to me what He did with His first century disciples. Indeed, even as I write and contemplate what He reveals, I know He is not just looking at me when He speaks. He sees the multitudes. He is training me to represent Him.

The Movement of Love

Undrai Fizer

There is an inward law in the heart of the religious offspring. There is an inward fear of openly receiving and expressing the life of the Father. The fear of being loved and touched by Him in such a powerful way is hard to fathom to some. The heart of the religious offspring will seek to defend the "rights of the house" instead of the "rights of passage to the Father's heart!

The religious offspring will find their passions hidden in the relics of the external church instead of the present move of the Spirit that will navigate them to the Flow of God, away from the camps of years past.

There is no law when it comes to loving, receiving, and giving to God. There is no "hebrew/greek" definition when it comes to giving your life away to God. There is no law or inhibition when the love is true and pure.

Order without anointing will create a dead tradition of life. It will paint a distant picture of God that is not true to His character or His expression. Anointing with passion, will create His order. It will create order in the chaos of our many traditions and ritualistic approach to a powerful Father. It will bring light to a people hidden under the "old waters" of wasteful traditions and non-passionate praise to God. *Acts 17:26-27

There is no law when it comes to loving God. He is very exciting and loves excited children. He is very passionate and loves passionate children. His mercies are new every morning and so should our worship be as well. New every morning!

He loves the new and exciting things. He loves creative people and creative living. He is a creator.

We must be identified with Him more than we are identified with our organizations or ministries. We must learn to continue on in the truth and not just "bend with the move" of God. We must be "pulled" from the roots of our "religious identity" and be renamed by His Spirit. Are we willing to move from our camp into the open pastures of destiny? Are we moving along with the wind or bending in the wind?

God is our Father. We can love Him freely. We can give to Him freely. Whether it's called a tithe, offering, or a gift. If we love Him passionately, we will fulfill His needs, no matter what it is or where it is. There is no law to love Him.

Those who have captured the heart of the Father will not seek to control the rights of others, only enhance it by leading them to the One that loved them most..Christ Jesus! This is the movement of Love, and it has never died out. Never.

Undrai & Bridget Fizer

Move in the Flow. Move in the Glory.

The Time of Sweet Wine

Lee Hattrich

I saw a winepress.

As I watched grapes being pressed in this wooden contraption I noted several things. One is the appearance of the grapes as they went through the process of being pressed. I saw the pulp pressed over and over until it became part of the juice. It has been so pressed that the only thing left was juice. I also saw the skin of the grapes. These too were pressed over and over again until all the juice had been released from the skin. I noted the deepest color just under the skin. This was not an easy task. The process had to be repeated over and over until it had been completed. There were also seeds in the press. As I watched I understood that the seed would remain intact and collected in the recesses of the press until such a time for oil pressing. I was very aware of the juice, deep, dark burgundy red running from the press and flowing out to cover the area around it. Then He spoke to me these words:

"See I have invited you in. And you would think that you have come into a glorious place. Yes child, Oh yes. you have come into a glorious place. But not as a man would think - not by man's design - but by Mine. By invitation because you thought to invite Me into your lives, your very lives. so then I have brought you here into this glorious place. Listen to it now, hear the Name by which this place is known. See now, you have asked to see My Glory so I have brought you here that you might see and know My Glory. Even here, even into My Winepress.

See, I Am pressing you in My Winepress and you think there is nothing left, nothing left to be pressed out but Oh My child, trust Me. I know when enough is enough. I know when it is time. The time of Sweet Wine. Don't you know I am preparing you to carry forth to those with out, My Sweet Wine. So be pressed, but know My Glory awaits you. You will see and you will know My Glory. It is so destined that you should be called, indeed you are, those who would carry My Glory forth to those with out.

Be pressed. Be pressed."

Concerning the seeds I know that these are collected and reserved for a time to come. I know that as the seeds are pressed what will be released is a costly oil. Not easy to obtain but greatly desired. We have yet to see the anointing that will come forth at the pressing of the seeds. We have only glimpsed the Glory of Who He is and what He has done on our behalf and the Power that is ours. The Wine represents His Precious Blood. The Oil represents the anointing that flows as we become willing to be crushed even as He was.

Philippians 3:7-14 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted as loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish that I may gain Christ and be found in Him not having my own righteousness which is from the law but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already attained or am already perfected; but that I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of for me. Brethren I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Time For Mobilization

Joanne Gavlick

While in prayer last night for the church, I heard the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) say, "Time for Mobilization." What does this mean, Lord? I looked up the word mobilize - it is defined as:

  • To put into movement or circulation.
  • To release (something stored in the organism) for bodily use.
  • To assemble and make ready for war duty.
  • To marshal for action.

We must come to the revelational knowledge that everything we are and need is already in us - the only thing we need to do is RELEASE it. You have the ark of the covenant residing IN you as gatekeepers of the ark. His power and authority HAS been granted to you already, for the King and His Kingdom has taken up residence inside your spirit when you became born from above.

Let us hear from the Father (Prophecy):

It is time to release that which already exists within each one of you, that you may move as one mighty assembly, one mighty army. Take your position, receive your orders, and report for duty, says the Lord of Hosts, for it is I that commissions and not man. Many of you have been waiting for flesh and blood to reveal to you your purpose, but I say I have already given to you the keys to death, hell, and the grave.......... why do you seek the living among the dead?

This is the hour for My power to be released from within YOUR spirit man. Stir yourselves, says the Lord of Hosts. Put into movement that which has been deposited into your inner man and RELEASE it! Release your physical healing! Release your family's salvation! Release your peace of mind! Release My Kingdom purposes! For it is time to MOBILIZE, church!

Sheep Are Led, Not Driven

A. W. Tozer

Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. For he is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. --Psalm 95:6-7

Cattle are driven; sheep are led; and our Lord compares His people to sheep, not to cattle.

It is especially important that Christian ministers know the law of the leader--that he can lead others only as far as he himself has gone....

The minister must experience what he would teach or he will find himself in the impossible position of trying to drive sheep. For this reason he should seek to cultivate his own heart before he attempts to preach to the hearts of others....

If he tries to bring them into a heart knowledge of truth which he has not actually experienced he will surely fail. In his frustration he may attempt to drive them; and scarcely anything is so disheartening as the sight of a vexed and confused shepherd using the lash on his bewildered flock in a vain attempt to persuade them to go on beyond the point to which he himself has attained....

The law of the leader tells us who are preachers that it is better to cultivate our souls than our voices. It is better to polish our hearts than our pulpit manners, though if the first has been done well and successfully it may be profitable for us to do the second. We cannot take our people beyond where we ourselves have been, and it thus becomes vitally important that we be men of God in the last and highest sense of that term. The Price of Neglect, 151-153.

"Lord, today let me stop, step off the busy treadmill, and look to the condition of my soul. Help me to listen to You and be spiritually nurtured, to have my soul cultivated by You in silence and solitude. Amen."

Rest and Resurrection

Tim Early

On the 7th day, we see in the scriptures that the nature of the Elohim is now Jehovah Elohim, the Lord of creation as confirmed in Genesis chapter two. From there we also consider how all that God ever created rest in the six days of creation, and that the things we desire of him are simply coming into manifestation, tangibility, and substance. In other words, it has been a done deal from the beginning.

As 2001 holds a host of objectives and responsibilities to consider, it is of utmost importance to acknowledge not only what God is going to manifest for us, but in us as well. For a greater deeper sphere of the saint's life is not the external appeal of what we can get from the Father, but what we are becoming in him.

For many, it appears to be the year of their greatest breakthrough. But in all truth, it is a breakthrough of a whole different kind. This time, we shall witness the breaking out of the seed of the kingdom planted within us from over the years, and the seed coming to full maturity. In this new dimension of grace and unlimited glory, the Father is placing a premium of our becoming what we have already been, a people born from within the most holy place. Isaiah 37:16.

In the 3rd day from Jesus Christ and the 7th from Adam, we are witnessing the union and oneness of God and man. As the glory from the Cherubim is revealed through the union and witness of the Cherubim, so is there a fresh release of this unlimited glory from the communion of the 3rd and 7th day. For as true union manifest between husband and wife, elders and church, God and man, or the Cherubim above the Mercy Seat, so is there now made manifest a new dynamic in the earth realm as both numeric days reveal simply the same day, the day of the Lord.

In this hour of transition from a 2nd day mentality to the 3rd dimension, there is a press from the 60-fold to the 100-fold, for the key is in the subtraction of the number 60 from 100. Afterwards, discover the remaining number and you will see that 40 is symbolic of a test and trial, as well as transition. Simply put, 40 has some present truth application of "another generation." For as we emerge into the third day, we are coming into another generation. It is here where the present truth reveals how we are ascending from generation, degeneration, to regeneration, for we are chosen genes, chosen genetics, a new apostolic priesthood after the order of Melchisedec, a people of a bold new and electrifying day.

In this new pattern, the principles of number 3 and number 7 are becoming a relevantly new meaning for many believers who were once stuck in the 2nd day. No, it is not to say that the 2nd day is of no value. On the contrary, the 2nd day dimension helped us to define what is going on in the 3rd realm of our maturity, the place where we move from visitation to habitation, from the cross {outer court} to the throne {mercy seat}. From conception to perfection. it is the place where John saw a throne in heaven, and one that sat on that throne. It is the day of the Lord, the revelation of Christ in the fullness, the headship and preeminence of Jesus Christ.

Beloved, the changes and transitions of the Spirit today are necessary to bring us into the full manifestation of HIM, the one who sits upon the throne {heart, mind, Naos principle of the temple being you, the saints}. For in all of the testing, scourging, and buffeting {Oops, did somebody say Buffet, for I sure am hungry? - Smile}, God created the storm with you and me in mind. He purposed us through process, and process is not punishment. He prepared the smith to blow upon the coals of fire, and the locust to devour. He is simply telling us that some of the greatest movements in the earth, whether reformation, kingdom reign, five-fold, or the saints coming into the revelation of the king priest ministry, is the work of an inside job being done within us. It is deep calling unto the deep. It is the hidden wisdom of the Lord coming into manifestation, even while you are in the lion's den. It is a new substance of the Spirit where we trust the Lord in everything, not being moved by the old carnal dictates which alludes to ministry being only external and outward in scope. For the real deal going on now is the eruption of the hidden man on out, the glory of the latter house than the first, mortal to immortality, the depth and brooks of the vast streams of the eternal presence of God surfacing to water the earth. It is simply the unseen to the scene, the invisible becoming visible, the intangible becoming intangible, a hidden dimension of grace and glory that is bringing us into full maturity, into the very manhood of Christ, beyond adolescence to full stature. Again, it's an inside job!

Many believers claim to be spiritual, but they are not mature. Many desire mansions, but not the expansion of the mansion, get it!

Therefore, I encourage you all in this new thrust of destiny to enjoy the deeper spheres of the grace and glory of God than what was held alone for us in the 1st and 2nd day. Dare to vanquish beyond the limited mentalities of the good old days, for they were good, but now they are old. Enjoy moving into new spheres and portals of the eternal dimensions, where chronology and eternity are two different things. For in the realm of the greater glory of the Lord, God is not committed to our ability, but to our destiny. It is simply our response to God's ability. It is the glory of the 3rd day resurrection principles, and the 7th day principles of His Rest. It is the realm and dimension of grace where the aging process is defied, for here, time now meets with eternity. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18; 5:1-8

Below, enjoy our chart of the progressive dimension, which most of you are already aware of. I am sending it to compliment the exhortation given, and to say, "enjoy the ride folks." There is a progressive migration ahead, perfection according to Hebrews 6:1-2, that which is perfect {Jesus Christ - 1st Corinthians 13}. Enjoy the ride!
