It'S Time To Build...God'S Way (eBook)

Sobre o livro
In light of the accuracy of biblical prophecies, things currently may appear hopeless, but the things which have been operating in hidden places of darkness are now being exposed and brought into the light. We have the assurance that the Father is still sovereign and in control. He will prevail until the kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ. He shall reign forever and ever!
Rest assured, we have a part in God’s overall plan: we are to co-labor with Him! As we begin to understand God’s predetermined plan, He begins with the end in mind by first building up the individual believer. His progressive plan is to build up families, then nations, and finally His kingdom. Ultimately, we shall be established as a kingdom of priests who govern with Him. Thus, the kingdoms of this world will have become the kingdom of our Lord. This process is revealed in Jeremiah 1:10 and the pattern is found in Exodus 34. Far too long has the body of Christ been building on an imperfect foundation influenced by man’s imagination, cultural traditions, and religious thinking.
It is now TIME TO BUILD… first, through the knowledge of Christ who is both the cornerstone (keeping the structure straight) and the capstone (securing the structure). And of course, through the foundational truths revealed by the Holy Spirit to the Apostles and Prophets. It is Christ who is faithful as a Son over His Father’s house. Therefore, in order to present this “sound structure” to our Father, there must first be a process of plucking up, breaking down, destroying and overthrowing. Such steps are necessary in order to build and plant according to the heavenly patterns that are already established. Let us not be as the ones who built the tower in Babel.
In oneness, there is nothing impossible that cannot be accomplished. Man has been blessed with a powerful imagination! However, anything accomplished outside of the character and nature of God is already perverted, bringing glory only to self and not to the Father (who shares His glory with no man)! God must confound man’s self-efforts for they deny the glory and honor due to His name – the Name of YHVH (John 17:11-14). It is the only Name to be named throughout the ages both in heaven and earth.
