TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – 5/11/2023
James 5:11 – Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord—that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful.
Behind every great person of God is a great affliction. When you are fully aware of the pain of others, you will not to make a big deal out of your own circumstances. The Spirit of God does not lead by what feels good, but by righteousness. We all face pain, disappointment, betrayal, rejection and sickness, but God’s grace is greater than these. Pain is not forever. Jesus walked in victory and pain. So will you.
Declaration: I will endure to the end. Pain is temporary. Salvation is eternal.
A ROCK AND A RIVER
Today, I want to start off with this basic theory: when it comes to the Kingdom, you’re supposed to have theories and be a little bit weird. Because you and I are always searching for understanding and wisdom, our theories are not the devil.
When I start presenting my theory on time and timelines, there’s going to be people who say, “Well that’s just a theory. He can’t prove that. I have a different theory.”
Here’s what I say to that: so what? Listen, you don’t have to draw a line in the sand and say, “If your theory is not my theory then we have to be at war with each other.” As a matter of fact, within your walk, there should be two different parts of your understanding that develop your faith.
Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. – 1 Peter 2:4-5
First, you and I are called living stones in the Temple of God. Then, in 1 Corinthians 12:12, we are called members of the Body of Christ. There’s a big difference between being a living stone in a temple of the Holy Spirit and being a member of the Spirit-filled body.
Being living stones in the Temple is a picture of being joined fitly together. It means there are some things we do not budge on. We go, “Nope. I’m sorry, but I’m not going to cross that line. That thing is precious to me and I’m not going to allow any devil from hell to come in and steal it from me.”
Being part of the body means you’re always growing, changing and connecting. There’s a flow to it because revelation comes in waves. This is all about being alive, striving and going after things. This is where theories are born.
You need both of these things to be an overcomer in the Kingdom, and time is a topic we’re going to tear apart so be prepared to be a rock and a river!
