There is a tribe in Africa who have had such a deep reformation and repentance that they are called The Shining Ones. They have the Shining Light Anointing from God.
They go immediately to the church for prayer when they feel the slightest loss of light.
They feel that since they have found this great joy and way of life, that they cannot live with out the fullness of the Light of God the Father.
There is no sickness in the village and they do not seem to be aging.
This is only an appetizer before the Great Outpouring.
Once again, it was intercessory prayer and great sacrifice that brought this about.
The thing that is the most interesting is that they were able to break through into a new dimension in God without fearing to press into the "New Things" that the Father has waiting to pour out on ALL of us. They were made so hungry by the work of the Holy Spirit that they could not and would not stop praying and repenting and seeking the fullness of His presence. It became the most important thing in their lives.
It became the dominating factor of their whole village.
They wanted to love each other with as much love as they could bring from heaven.
They wanted to be as much like Jesus as they could possibly be, and wanted beyond everything else to grow in His image and likeness.
The question is, "What is the really NEW THING for us?"
It seems as though there is always some "New Thing."
Is it something from this world? Some "thing" that takes our attention from the things of heaven and the Light of God that is supposed to fill our lives?
Some "thing" that does not mean LIFE or bring LIFE to our families and friends?
Or, to the ones that we should be led to in order to share the Life of Yeshua with every day?
Some "thing" that will never bring real Life to others?
Some "thing" that brings death to your spirit.
This is the reason that so many in this country have an overwhelming feeling of loneliness.
Loneliness is in epidemic proportions today. This is a spirit of darkness that should be cast out.
It is taking a lot of lives because no one understands where it comes from or how to fix it.
It is straight from the pit of hell.
It cannot be fixed but it can be cast out and replaced with the Spirit of Light and Life.
THERE ARE ONLY TWO CHOICES ON THIS EARTH.
EVERYTHING EITHER BRINGS LIFE OR BRINGS DEATH.
LIGHT BRINGS LIFE AND DARKNESS BRINGS DEATH.
Are we pulled by the Holy Spirit to read and study God's Holy Word at least once a day so that we can be totally filled with the Holy Spirit like these people?
Are we guarding ourselves and our families from the Spirit of Death that is working every second trying to permeate the atmosphere with darkness?
In effect, we have stopped putting the Blood of the Lamb on our doorposts and lintels.
And further than that, we have actually left our doors spiritually open and unlocked.
My precious bothers and sisters, there is prayer going on all over the world for us.
Other Christians in a lot of places on this earth feel sorry for us.
They have actually moved past us in spiritual understanding.
They really, really love us, but, they feel sorry for us.
They pray for us to see the Light every day.
Like Martha, we are busy with much serving.
Too busy will not be accepted as an excuse.
My dear ones, we are permitted and encouraged by our Father God to be like Mary, and to worship and learn about Him while sitting at His beautiful feet.
THE GREAT CLOUD OF WITNESSES
We come from a pioneer heritage and our ancestors blood cries out from the ground.
They are saying to us, "Will you stand up for what all of us died for?" and, "Do you see and understand the fact that love, truth, justice, peace, goodness and abundance can only be restored by your faith in and your trust and worship of, the Heavenly Father?"
Restoration is found in our Heavenly Father and not in anything else.
When you do this, you will not just restore the original purposes of the founders, but you will have become part of the dream of God to have the Heavenly Kingdom brought to earth.
This is bigger than the Universe.
Read the whole book of Hebrews. It describes all of the heroes and heroines of Faith.
It is good to do this every month or so. It will build up your faith and make you stronger.
"As for us, we have all of these great witnesses who encircle us like clouds. Hebrews 12:1
So we must let go of every wound that has pierced us and the sin that we so easily fall into.
Then we will be able to run life's marathon race with passion and determination, for the path has already been marked out before us." Passion Translation
When you have done these things ,you will have the extreme delight of praying for the sick.
When you are holding a sick baby in your arms and the healing power of God flows through you and the child is instantly healed, when that happens, you will never be tempted to go back to your "old life" ever again because this should be, and is on the verge of being, the normal Christian life of every believer.
This is the path to the destruction of the kingdom of darkness, and the victory of the Kingdom of Light.
This is something that God designed for you that will change you on the inside forever.
That is why healing the sick is so important for the body of Christ to pursue.
Quickly followed by an upgrade to raising the dead.
It is extremely exciting to be on the edge of the next move of God.
It gives us energy and courage and insight into the truth of what our Father's plan really is. It is a new frontier.
Especially when we know with certainty that WE WIN.
"Remember to stay alert and hold firmly to all you believe. Be mighty and full of courage. Let love and kindness be the motivation behind all that you do." 1 Corinthians 16: 13-14 Passion Translation
