"He, for the joy (of obtaining the prize) that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:2b
Your Are His Prize
Our desire is to obtain the prize that awaits us as we run the race. We have set our face like a flint and we will do whatever it takes to win as we obey the Lord in the soon coming War of Light Against Darkness. The Joy of the Lord has resurrection power.
When Jesus was raised from the dead, many others were also raised from the dead at the same time because of the mighty power that accompanied Him.
Our Heavenly Father is going to pour out the joy of resurrection power in great measure upon those who have set themselves apart unto Him.
This follows the Divine plan that is laid out in Ephesians Chapters 1 and 2.
The Holy Spirit through Paul in Ephesians tells us that there is a mystery and there are secrets that Our Father has kept hidden until now. Ephesians 1: 9-10 says that "Making known to us the mystery (secret) of His will (of His plan, His purpose). (And it is this:) In accordance with His good pleasure Which He had previously purposed and set forth in Him, (He planned) for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ, (both) things in Heaven and things on the earth." We know that during the ages, more and more truth has been revealed by the Holt Spirit. Now, it is the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages. The fullness of the mystery and the secrets are now ready to be revealed.
Joy is a Weapon of Power
"By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set apart ones). And (so that you can know and understand) what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Christ from the dead and seated Him at His (own) right hand in the heavenly (places), Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named (above every title that can be conferred), not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and in the world that are to come." Ephesians 2:18-20
At that time, there will be a great shout of victory that will be heard around the earth.
The full grown Sons of God will reveal the complete mysteries and secrets of the plan of God.
And power will be given to bring those mysteries to pass to the glory of God the Father.
We have come to the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages.
We who live now are getting prepared for the insights into the mysteries and secrets of our Heavenly Father.
Resurrection power can be accessed when it is needed. It can flow from each of you who are reading this message today. Decide to be so filled with the Word of God that you will be ready when called upon to pray for the sick with great power at any time.
I was called to pray for a precious saint, I walked into the bedroom and found the man bed fast and unable to walk due to large ulcers down to his bones that covered his legs.
The Holy Spirit began to give instructions which indicated that I was to put a chair in front of the television set before proceeding any further. The reason given by the Holy Spirit was that the television had become the source of authority to the man. That authority was to be cut off completely and the authority given to God alone. The interpreter and myself were shown a large box that was filled with bottles of drugs and medications that had failed to have any effect. Sitting down in the chair that had been strategically placed, I began to teach healing scriptures from the Word of God. The presence of the Lord began to fill the room more and more as we began to pray for healing. At that time, the Holy Spirit said, "Stand up and go to the bedside and place your right hand on the man's legs. You must prove that not only do you believe that he will be healed, but that also believe that the sickness will not be transferred to you. Do not be repulsed or intimidated by what you see." I obeyed and began to pray.
As the prayer continued, the man and his wife began to worship and praise the Lord in their own language and I sat down in the chair and began to praise and worship the Lord as well.
Praising, worshiping and singing to the Lord continued for about 20 to 30 minutes. Suddenly, the man and his wife were talking to each other with great excitement. When we opened our eyes, we saw that that this precious couple were glowing with the light of the glory of God. The interpreter began to interpret what they were saying. Both were speaking at once.
They kept repeating, "Did you see it? Did you see it?" Angels came down from heaven into this room. They lifted up this bed and both of us and flew with us into heaven. We were praising God there and singing with the angels and then Jesus told us that he was healed and the angels brought us back down here." We all praised the Lord again for some time and as we stood up to leave, the interpreter was told that the man was supposed to have his legs amputated in three days.
But, the husband and wife knew that he had been healed even though they did not see any difference in his legs. Upon awakening the next morning, the man's legs were totally healed and restored. They said that his skin was all new like a baby's skin.
You could actually say that the man was resurrected since he was on the edge of the death that would have surely followed.
It is good to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit as He instructs us in the way of prayer.
Trust the Holy Spirit. He has a perfect plan for each person.
"The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives in you." Romans 8:11
Every Christian is called to partake of the resurrection power of Yeshua.
You are called to do, and, you can do the same miracles that are spoken of in scripture.
