THE BODY FITLY JOINED...

Ephesians 4:15-16

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.


It is my desire and I also encourage each of you to join together as ONE body, fitly joined, supplying the needs of one other for the advancement of the Kingdom of God and for the edification of the Body of Christ.

Join us for fellowship, encouragement and networking. We can share announcements & events in the Houston and surrounding areas and support one another's ministry efforts.

2010: To the New Dimension
Revelation 21: 1—3


Intro
2010 holds for us possibility, promotion and power! The number 10 is the start of a whole new order of numbers, and the culmination of the numbers that come before it. 10 implies completeness of order; nothing lacking, nothing over. It signifies that the cycle is complete, and that everything is in its proper order. 10 represents the perfection of divine order. I just stopped by to tell you that: though you’ve gone through some trials, tribulations, and devastation over the past 10 years, it wasn’t for nothing. Everything you endured was on purpose, for purpose, in preparation for your promise and promotion. The 10th verse of the Bible is part of the 3rd day of creation that speaks to perfection of order and arrangement where God separated earth from sea and saw that it was good. The 10th chapter of the Bible deals with the descendants of Noah, who himself was 10th generational patriarch from Adam, and completes the Antediluvian Age. From Noah’s son Shem to Abraham is 10 generations and completes the age before the Covenant. There are 10 recorded Passovers in the Bible, the 1st of which is when the Lord instituted it in Exodus 12. The 10th day of the 1st month the Lord gave marks its beginning. The 10th Passover, where Jesus is crucified, is the fulfillment of the pattern, in the perfect sacrifice of Jesus for our sins; therefore 10 completes once, for all, forever! To access these blessings, we must realize that there is also reasonable responsibility that comes along with it. There is a shift in the Heavens, and God has begun to shift us to prepare us for the promotion. We must acknowledge the paradigm shift. Business as usual will no longer be acceptable in the Lord’s church. No more assembling to watch instead of worship; no more preaching to tickle ears and titillate emotions instead of teaching the Word of God; no more coming to church fiending for a hit instead of looking to be spiritually fit. God is taking us somewhere, but the only way to be fit for the next dimension we must accept the shift and the sift, (thank you Apostle Shephard). While we are being moved into a new position in God through Christ, He is also shaking off the impurities and parasites in our lives. Our thinking must change, our behavior must change, our friends and environment must change, and our perspective and perception must change. Dr. Hycel B. Taylor, my mentor and childhood pastor, taught us a relevant paradigm in our struggle as a people that I believe is appropriate for our shift today. We must realize that we are spiritually somewhere between the No Longer, and the Not Yet. The No Longer is that place of spiritual bondage in service to sin; that place you were delivered from by the shed blood of Jesus through salvation. The Not Yet is that place of spiritual freedom; Land of Promise we all long for; eternal life with God in His Kingdom, for where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty! Andrew Harris, October 1999 Google Search The Meaning of the Number 10

The Tragic Trap: The Almost
We are caught somewhere between these two spiritual realities. We find ourselves in a spiritual No Place. This is a wilderness in which we march in circles or even march in place making no progress whatsoever, spinning our wheels and marking time. We shouldn’t be marching at all. We should be in training preparing for our promotion. We go through the religious motions and learn evangelical language, but do not develop the spiritual relationship. Though we have been delivered from conscious bondage, directly serving the enemy through sin, we seem to have been yoked to another type of bondage called tradition. We call it a tragic trap because we experience it after direct bondage while we are on our way to total, complete freedom. But be not conformed to this world, but be transformed… In our paradigm we are in The Almost. This is a dangerous and deceptive place because in is a place where you feel like you are serving God, you feel like you are spiritually maturing, you feel like you have spiritual power. It resembles the Kingdom of God. There are miracles being performed, people are being delivered, people are hearing the Word of God, yet lives have not been changed, and there is no evidence of God’s anointing. We do many things because the tradition has been handed down to us and we don’t even know why we do them. We’ve seen someone else do it and adopted the practice because it looked good. Choose this day whom you will serve! You can serve the gods of your fathers, or worship the idols of the ones in whose land you dwell, but as for me and my house, we will, serve the Lord!

Dying to the No Longer
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away; behold, all things are become new. Are we really living for Him, or do we want a convenient Christianity? Do we press our way to the church house, or do we go because that is what we’ve become accustomed to? We served sin with a cool, calm, cavalier, care-free attitude and continue to do the same in serving Christ. The elders in the old church said, “I woke up this morning with my mind stayed on Jesus”. Today we serve Him when we want to, or when we feel like it. But we should serve the Lord with gladness; bless the Lord at all times; pray without ceasing; and in all your ways, acknowledge Him. You cannot acknowledge Him through deceitful lusts, envy and jealousy, lying, etc. We must die to our old ways and thinking. This is not just a switch you can turn on and off. Shun evil, resist the devil. Do not try to reform or rehabilitate your old behavior, but die to it! Hold fast to The Way, The Truth, The Life; Jesus Christ, our Lord!

Anticipate the Not Yet
Walk by faith, and not by sight; for without faith it is impossible to please God. God is going to blow your mind this year. He is going to do something in and through you that will literally shock those around you and it will be larger than anything you have ever dreamed of, because He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than you could ever ask or imagine. God has not fully revealed what He’s going to do or where He’s taking you. Trust and believe that He rewards them that diligently seek Him. He said He would never leave nor forsake you. Serving the Lord will pay off after a while, because only what you do for Christ will last. Yes there is a great reward for serving the Lord, but it comes with a great deal of responsibility.

To the New Dimension: The Already
New Jerusalem is the place Christ has prepared for His people. In this place you are in eternal relationship with God, a free, uninterrupted relationship. In his vision, John saw a new Heaven and a new Earth because the old creation has been destroyed and passed away. There was no more sea because the total climate and human disposition has changed. Then God will take up residence with us Himself. There will be no more crying, sorrow, death, nor pain because the former things have passed away. As you hunger and thirst for righteousness God will give unto you water freely from the fountain of life, and you shall inherit all things and be God’s child. You’re not just going to another level, but to a new dimension. A level is housed in the same sphere where you are presently, but a dimension is a new sphere. Ascending levels is easier than transcending dimensions. Ascending levels you are able to maintain baggage, but transcending dimensions means you must shed unnecessary baggage because the road becomes more narrow as you ascend to a higher dimension. In preparing to go there, the Lord told me to stop by and tell you not to worry about what you’ll say or wear, don’t even try to map out where to go. He will be with you always. You don’t work or earn your way to New Jerusalem, but you are already a citizen because of Him. He is The Already! He has already paid the price and redeemed you from the enemy. He already prepared a place for you so that you can be where He is. He has already overcome the world, He is arisen! Welcome to your destiny! Welcome to your new dimension! Welcome New Jerusalem!
