TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
My word says I Am Spirit. I use My children to impact your world. I offer you the opportunity to be used to make a difference for My kingdom – to manifest heaven on earth. It is a privilege as well as a huge responsibility. Jump in! I’m waiting.
ARE YOU PREGNANT?
The Word says “your Kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” It’s one of the best-known verses in the Bible, but also the most misunderstood.
To clarify, the power, the presence, and the promises of God are in Heaven. Here on earth, there’s the potential for everything kingdom, but those things need to be brought here. You and I are fighting for heaven to invade this earth – for Jesus to become King and reproduce heaven through us.
For that to happen, you’re going to have to partner, or co-labor, with God. Emphasis on the word “labor.”
Now, the word labor doesn’t just mean to work. It’s more in the line of working to have a baby. We’re the Bride of Christ! We get to know God’s presence and promises intimately. God puts something in our hearts and in our spirits that nobody else sees there.
Because of this, we have the responsibility of “carrying” this thing within us. My friends, it’s a big responsibility to carry these promises all the way through until we can finally see them come to fruition.
And labor isn’t easy or painless. You and I are going to have to pay a painful price for the process of delivering this thing, or these people, into the Kingdom. Our time, our talents and treasures – our reputations and relationships – all will be asked of us to bring heaven to earth in our lives and the lives of those headed to hell in the proverbial handbasket.
Even the Word says there’s no such thing as a glorious birth without a painful price attached to it.
For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. – Romans 8:22-23
That pain and effort will be worth it when you see the people you love living in eternity. When you lay down your crown at Jesus’ feet and give Him the gift of saved men and women, the pain will be worth it – all of it. Are you pregnant?
