Check this out!! Free UPGRADE!!!

To know the sound of the day and times and seasons of God is essential for continued advancement of the Kingdom.  A great general once said “the worst place to be in where God used to be”.  God is always growing and moving His purpose in the earth.  To hold on to what was when God is moving, is to continue to expect manna to fall from heaven when it is time to eat the old corn of the land and cook your own food.

Just because it was the PROCEEDING word in the past doesn’t make it the NOW PROCEEDING word for today.  As leaders of the NOW church we must learn to follow the lamb withersoever He goes and that may be into places of uncharted waters for the church to inherit.  We are building the lives of people which is the church not just trying to get a big gathering of people for the sake of building a large group for display.

We are the wise master builders here in the earth building into the lives of people the truths that establish and anchor us in all adversity and triumph.  With every new move of God there comes a death certificate in one hand and a birth certificate in another…….it is time to let go of what was and let it die and embrace the new thing He is doing and do it with Him.  What God is doing looks different than what He has done in the past and it is time to change for the sake of the Kingdom and all the inhabitants of the earth!!!

The church in the wilderness was totally different that the church in the Promised Land.  We have moved and these are promised land days not wilderness times.  To hold onto the wilderness ways keeps you from seeing God in His fulness and impedes your effectiveness.  You are NEVER too old or worn out or burnt out to fully embrace God and His right now word and His relevant right now methods.  This biggest hinderance to the growth of the church is “we have always done it this way”.  He remains the same but His methods and ways of operation must change or we will sit on the wilderness side watching another generation inherit our possessions!

Here is a small snippet of a facebook post that I know is very relevant for the right now church of the 3rd Day!

It is essential as 3rd day people that we become relevant and effective with our revelation…..our revelation should not be so out there it can’t be lived out or experience on earth. The revelation of Jesus is to and for all mankind not just a handful that want to appear more spiritual than others. It is a heaven and earth ministry not just a heaven ministry. If we hang them in the heavens then we must be able to apply that heavenly revelation on the earth while in shoe leather. It is not a message just for the elite we are all God’s elect…..cross pollinate with others and get out side of your camp and be friendly and nice…after all we are the ones who preach to see all men in Christ. We talk about not staying in the old order and I have found that most deeper life folks have a now word but still present it with an old order method. That is called mixture. If you preach and no one understands what you are talking about because it is so heady does that make the message relevant and applicable? I don’t think so…..I love all of my deeper life, 3rd day, sonship preacher friends but one thing I know for sure the older folks that ushered in this wave are dying off and we are left with a message to declare and proclaim…..if we are not touching the next generation of young people then who is going to go with the now word? What can you do to make your message palatable for more than just a handful that already knows and understands what we preach……The sound from the Most Holy Place was heard all the way to the out court….so with great wisdom and divine strategy lets rethink our methods and make this eternal word live on in generations to come. After all we are the stewards of it!

Upgrade or get left behind!

This past Sunday I took a trip into the past.  A friend of our family past away a few months ago and we were invited into their house to see the estate before all of their possessions were sold off and distributed to their family.  This individual was a person of great wealth and influence in the community.  However what was left over from their life on earth was now old, outdated and held little value for today.   Scanning the rooms filled and overflowing with “STUFF” that was costly to them and held much value were now considered mere “JUNK”.

I realized that we have in our own lives “STUFF” that cost us dearly and truths that we have paid for with our lives to establish.  Yet when the cloud moves some of our dearest and most costly possessions in our belief systems and ideas of doctrine loose their value.  This “STUFF” must be replaced with what is relevant as to what God is saying NOW and where He is taking us NOW.  My father in the Lord Dr. Kelley Varner always said “the worst place to be is where God used to be”.

Eating left overs is not one of my favorites.  I prefer fresh over stale.  However in the church we have continued to serve leftovers of yesterdays manna instead of the fresh bread of living realities.  Just because we have moved with the cloud 10 years ago does not mean we remain on the cutting edge.  If we have not changed or upgraded what and how we believe in the last 5 years we are feeding on leftovers and have stopped moving.  I refuse to let the church die off because we are not willing to embrace the NOW of what God is saying.  Eating wormy bread that has sat out for years is not going to be on my menu.  If we don’t upgrade we will get left behind.   We really don’t have all the answers but we do know the one that does.  Just admitting we don’t know it all and then asking the Holy Spirit to reveal present truth is the first step in moving on in God.

This blog post was sparked by this facebook status of my friends Tim and Theresa Early

 

Wherever the Glory of God in Christ is moving in great intensity throughout the earth it is a Divine Movement or where God IS. When people speak of the good ole days when they use to witness the power of God and Revelation for Revolution in their local assemblies that would be a Monument where God Was! The difference of where God IS and where God was is simple. The Is, is NOW and the Was use to be. Folks still camp around a former glory, a glory that has now faded. They have only John’s Baptism and not the present power of the Holy Spirit. It is the same as many religious systems and official names that we call ourselves out of Tradition, for the very thing does not tell others who you are but where you have stopped, died and have given up the ghost. So, recognize when the Spirit of the Lord is bringing forth something fresh in your midst and embrace it,. For in one sense it is a matter of Life or death in something that was killed years ago, a broken cistern, or a dried up brook. Discern brethren and abide in what God is calling you into! ~Tim and Theresa Early
