TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I Am a faithful Father. I love you and nothing will ever change that. Come to Me and rest in My promises. Anxiety and fear no longer have a place in your life. That fight is over.
YOU GOTTA GO!
God’s not mad at you. He loves you more than you know. Do not run away from Him. Run to Him.
You have access to God’s love and forgiveness by faith. Now, there’s a difference between the Old Testament and the New Testament, and I think OpenDoor Church is called to reach not just the world for Jesus, but to reach Christians for Jesus.
I’m talking about Christians who live on the wrong side of the cross. Their whole world is about trying to be right, but Jesus came to pay the price for that religious spirit. You and I are filled with the Spirit. We’re supposed to walk in that power and bear much fruit. We’re already saved – not still trying to get saved.
So, there’s a difference between one side of the cross and the other. The difference is baptism. The difference is the Jordan River. It’s the difference between wilderness Christians and Promised Land Christians. What is that?
In the wilderness, it’s all about survival. You learn that whatever the problem is, it isn’t God. God is the answer to everything. The wilderness is all about just getting through the day. Too many Christians live in the wilderness.
Then you get to the Jordan River. The Jordan splits, you walk across it and now you’re in the Promised Land. Your life isn’t all about survival anymore. It’s about a legacy. As a matter of fact, you don’t have to worry about survival anymore. Why?
Because you get to live in a house you didn’t build, drink from a well you didn’t dig and eat from a vineyard you didn’t plant. You find a giant or a mountain and you say, “Give me that mountain” or “You uncircumcised Philistine, who do you think you are? Get out of my house. Get out of my family and my generation.”
You stand up and say, “There’s a new sheriff in town. I’m filled with the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ, God Almighty and you gotta go!”
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. – James 4:7
