GOD'S PLANS AND PURPOSES FOR LIFE IN JESUS-MINISTRIES

HIS GLORY REIGNS
B. Childress
Nov 2, 2007


"In the wave of God's Glory and blessing that is coming upon the earth, the things that have been manifested
occasionally will become commonplace with the Body of Christ.  The Head of the Church, the Lord Jesus Christ, is
directing the activities of His Body in the world today, and He will receive all the praise and honor and glory for it."
(KHp. 6)

"...God's plan and purpose for any nation - to get people saved, filled with the Spirit, and walking in the love of God.  
No matter who you are or what your endeavor is, if your plans and purposes are in line with God, they will succeed."  
(KH p. 12)

"The reason many churches never prosper and many ministers never fulfill the call of God upon their lives is because
they don't follow God's plan - not only His plan spoken to their hearts by His Spirit, but also His written plan, the Bible.  
When the light of God's Word comes, it shows us God's plan for each one of us.  You see, the entrance of God's Word
gives light!  The light of God's Word reveals God's plan for the individual believer and God's plan for the Church!

The reason some folks seem to be just partially blessed - blessed only in a limited measure - is because they're just
partially walking in the light of what God has for them.  Others refuse entirely to walk in the light." (KH p. 73)

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service."
 Romans 12:1

"True New Testament worship includes the presenting of our bodies as a living sacrifice unto God.  The Bible says
this
is
the spiritual sacrifice acceptable to God as a spiritual house and as a holy priesthood - "Ye also, as lively stones,
are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus
Christ"
1 Peter 2:5

It is part of
true spiritual worship for believers under the New Testament to offer our bodies unto God as a spiritual
sacrifice.  When the Church starts worshipping God according to His plan for New Testament worship - you talk about
worship!  The spiritual worship of presenting their bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God is something
many Charismatics know nothing about.  God wants transfigured bodies - bodies presented as,
"...a living sacrifice,
holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service"
(Romans 12:1).  It is your spiritual worship to
present your body unto God....God [also] wants as part of true New Testament spiritual worship,
"And be not
conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind..."
 Romans 12:2  

God wants transfigured bodies and He wants transformed minds.  These are the spiritual sacrifices the Bible says the
believer is to offer up to God.  Many people are trying to serve God with the same old unrenewed mind they had
before they were born again.  No wonder they're still having so much trouble with their bodies and with their thoughts.  
It takes work and
discipline to renew your mind.  It doesn't come by simply attending church or by praying, and it
doesn't come overnight.  It requires diligent meditation in God's Word, and learning to change your ways and patterns
of thinking to line up with what His Word says.  But renewing our minds is not an option if we're going to be true New
Testament worshippers.  A transformed mind is part of the spiritual worship we are to offer up to God."  (KH p. 137-139)

Divine Order, God's Glory, Judgement

God's Glory is the highest heavenly reality.  The Glory of God is God's Presence manifested - God himself.

Before God's Glory comes, there must be Divine Order.....

Before God manifests His Glory, there must be divine order.  Once His Glory is revealed, there are great blessings.  
But, also once His Glory is revealed, any irreverence, disorder, or disobedience is met with immediate judgement. A
pattern has already been established from the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth - THE
CIRCLE OF GLORY (Review the posting on The Glory).

The Coming Glory

The latter rain of God's Glory will not only bring refreshing to God's people, but also to those around them.  The latter
rain is different from past revivals.  These revivals affected a city or a region here or there, such as Azusa and Wales.  
They also affected the nations, but you had to get there to be part of it.  But in the Book of Acts, His Glory manifested
everywhere His disciples went.  The Glory of God was poured out all over the known world.  The latter rain will be
poured out all over the earth in a much greater measure!  We must raise our eyes to the horizon and look for His
coming Glory!

Divine Order Has Been Established for this Season (A WORD FROM THE LORD)

I AM establishing divine order in My Body:

First -  EVERYBODY, even if they are already "saved," desiring to enter into the Kingdom of God, to walk in My
Glory, to be resurrected, to manifest the fullness of My power and presence in their lives and ministries,
MUST speak
the one and only prayer that not only leads to salvation but is the key to entering the Kingdom of God.  I have named
this prayer the
Kingdom Prayer of Salvation.  I will not recognize any other. This prayer provides a
cleansing for each individual believer to enter into the Kingdom of God.  It enables Me to impart the fullness of my
power and presence to the believer to perform My will - My plans and purposes for their individual lives and ministries.

There are many people hanging between the world system, religion, and salvation all because they believe they are
saved, but truly are not.  I want them to be reached.  
This prayer is sure.

You have been provided a prayer for the Baptism with the Holy Spirit.  Unbelievers who have come to salvation
by the Kingdom Prayer of Salvation, may speak the prayer for the Baptism with the Holy Spirit -
it is guaranteed.  
However, I may chose to move upon them in My own way, such as the laying on of hands or by a manifestation of My
presence.  Yield to the Holy Spirit.

Secondly - I AM restoring the Five-Fold Ministry which has been watered down over the years.  I expect the
Five-Fold Ministry team to restore the Church to Me.  Come to understand your duties and responsibilities in relation
to your ministerial gift and connect this understanding to the Word. I AM doing some new things, yield yourselves to a
new beginning.

Thirdly - The spiritual gifts operating through members of My team will have an even greater anointing than ever
before.  Study them.  Acquire a true working knowledge of your individual gifts - what they do and what they don't do -
understand their limitations.  Under all circumstances, follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Fourthly - You have been given the tools for spiritual warfare.  Use them often in your ministries and in your
personal lives.  Study them to ensure that you are using the right tool in relation to the situation at hand.  Know that
the devil will seek to kill or destroy you - be consistent with using the Blood in your personal lives.

Your Tools

The Name of Jesus

The Blood of Jesus

The Word of God (the living Word made flesh in us)

The Enduement of Power through the Holy Ghost

Praising the Lord

Binding and Loosing (11/9/2007)

These are My six powerful tools to living a victorious life. Use them!

Five - Judgement will be swift  and severe.  Keep spiritual things in the order I have given you.


"Hebrews 13:15 says we are to offer up to God the sacrifice of praise which is the fruit of our lips, giving thanks unto
His Name!  That is a sacrifice acceptable to God, and part of our spiritual worship.  The fruit of our lips offering praise
to God is part of true New Testament worship:

"By him[Jesus] therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips
giving thanks to his name."
 Hebrews 13:15

"Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;"  Ephesians
5:20 "                            (KH pgs. 139-140)
