What in the “WORLD” are you doing?

What in the “WORLD” are you doing?

I was getting out of the car to go into a local restaurant and I heard the Lord say “For God so loved the WORLD” everyone knows

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.

God REALLY LOVES the WORLD…I was taught my whole life to shun the world be separate from it don’t have anything to do with the WORLD!  Sometimes what we don’t know can hurt us so I got my bible and started looking at scriptures about the world and what GOD really thinks about it!  I want to share what I found with you I think you will find it interesting.

In reality we are called to the world that we have been taught to segregate from. He called us to make disciples of Nations and guess what the nations are out there in the WOLRD.  So maybe we should reconsider what we really believe maybe we have been a little incomplete in our thinking.  Let’s take a look!

Psalms 24:1  The earth is the Lord ‘s, and the fulness thereof; the WORLD, and they that dwell therein

Wow what a revelation the WORLD is the Lord’s I was lead to believe it belonged to the devil and his crowd.  Psalms 24 tells us different it really belongs to the Lord!

1 Chronicles 16:29  Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.

A stable world!  Who would have thought that is would not be moved?  Evidently God’s idea of the World and it’s purpose WERE not mine so guess, what I renewed my mind to this fact!

 Hebrews 9:26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world:but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many;

What the end of the world is not coming?  There is not some big cataclysmic event coming to destroy the world and it’s inhabitants….the end of the world was really in our past! The end of the world came when Jesus died on the cross, His death brought an end to the old world under the influence of adam and clearly ended the world.  His resurrection was the resurrection of a whole new world and way of living!  The world has already ended!  Hello New World!

Psalms 9:8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.

God is not going to judge the world with wrath….Psalms 9:8 clearly tells us He judges the World with Righteousness!  That is really good news and the future outlook for the world is much brighter, don’t you think?

The world is the cosmos the order or arrangement of things or how things are set up to operate and the people that are in the world or the nations…..There are 7 realms or shears of influence, the world is made up of:  Religion, Education, Finance, Business, Family, Arts and Entertainment and Media = World

Psalms 89:11  The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them

Acts 17:24  God that made the world and all things therein

John 1:10  He was in the world, and the world was made by him

God founded and made the world….HE was IN THE WORLD and we were told to separate from it…..His ways are awesome and everything He does is with GREAT purpose.  We are not called to be like the world but to go and influence every one of every nation with the power and manifestation of Christ. We are not Pilgrims and strangers just passing through we are at home here in the earth as a part of the world and the nations! Heaven came to earth when Jesus prayed “thy will be done on EARTH as it is in Heaven”  so we really are don’t have to leave to live in heaven we are living in heaven here.

John 6:33  For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

He came to give life to the WORLD…..He really LOVES the world!

Our last and final proof is found in

John 3:17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

He didn’t come to preach a condemning sentence to man He came to liberate them.  The second part says that the WORLD through HIM might be saved!  HIM is no longer just the one man that come in the manger the HIM now is much larger and His name is Jesus Christ both head and body.  He is the head and we are the body.  That makes us powerful here in the world to bring salvation to man.

Remember  You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid  Matthew 5:14.  It is time to go and shine.  Where are you going to shine?  Yes that is right in the world!  The world is an amazing place so go and be that divine influence you were called to be.  The world is not bad it just needs the overcomers to rise up with sphere authority and change how things are going!  We are powerful!  Jesus gave us our marching orders when He told us to go into ALL the WORLD!!!!

Dreamers…Dream ON!

Dreamers…Dream ON!

I have to share this with you….there are things said that can’t be improved upon!  Plain and simple this one is good!
Lance Wallnau nailed it for all you dreamers, dream on!

David writes: ‘…All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be’ (Psalms 139:16 NIV). God put you here for a reason, but that doesn’t mean others will understand it or agree with it.

Nehemiah’s critics thought he was on an ego trip, getting the prophets to speak well of him, and only out to enrich himself. Paul’s critics called him a madman, a fool and a babbler. Christ’s adversaries said that He was controlled by a devil. Expect attack, and be ready for it! Don’t let it keep you from moving forward. Journalist Anna Quindlen, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1992, had a dream in her heart that took her down a road others couldn‘t understand.

In an address to the class of 2002 at Sarah Lawrence College, Quindlen explained: ‘When I quit the New York Times to be a full-time mother, the voices of the world said I was nuts. When I quit the paper again to be a novelist, they said I was nuts again. But if success is not on your own terms, if it looks good to the world but does not feel good in your soul, it is not success at all.’

David said, ‘You have laid your hand upon me.’ When a dream comes from God, it will seem outrageous to more than a few people. You’ll have to overcome some nay-sayers to achieve it. That’s okay. If someone tries to silence your hope or deny your progress in the course of pursuing your dream, maybe that person isn’t your friend.

These words were sent from Kim Cordon of UK, a key intercessor for me. At 2:40 AM I opened and read. This rose up as a word for someone…..

————
“You’ve been tormented dancing around a few things. That is because you have not stepped into the full authority of your place. You want God to do something about a situation (or a few) and He says “you deal with it- you have the authority- I am behind you.”

“Go ahead- seize the rose decisively and the thorn you fear won’t pierce your skin- it will break. Stop being bullied by concern over what others think. Stop obsessing over the past. START believing in the power of your own assignment. Some of you think you are in a recreational vehicle when in fact you are in a high powered tank!

Stop trying to make ends meet and start making endings. What you are called to do is too important to dissipate in trying to fit into other peoples worlds or agendas. It is time you let the world feel the impact of a new idea. Originality has boldness in it. Be an original. You’ll find that the clearer you are the more bold you will be. You are authorized to make things happen.”

“Stop making ends meet and begin making clear endings. You know you have a clear ending when you have new starts. DO the thing you’ve been afraid to do.”
