Not In Words - In Representation

Not In Words BUT In Representation!

I want to encourage you in this new season many of you are entering into.

You have traveled through the wilderness; refined through the fire and have ridden the waves of the storms.  You have gone through the process and now has come the time for your revelation! (Romans 8:19)

The LORD has found you to be obedient – therefore you are NOW being shifted- transitioning from hiddenness to exhibition in that which God has appointed you for in such a time like this.

Do not succumb to fear in moving forward!  The enemy would love to yoke you with doubt and insecurity as you enter the platform – territory that has been assigned to you.

Where God is positioning many in this time is a place of unfamiliarity and can have us shrink back.  Do not allow thoughts of “how” you will get there; “when” you will get there; and “what” you will say when you do arrive!

Remember God has a plan (Jer. 29:11) and our job is to execute those plans accordingly as HE leads.  It is not for us to question but to follow in faith and total obedience.

But it requires that we continuously remain and dwell in the secret place (Ps. 91:1) to receive what we cannot obtain through our own personal studies or works.  In this place as we lay before Him, the fire of His Holiness continues to burn away any residue of the flesh that will defile what He is pouring into us:  His Anointing – His Power – His Glory! For it is ONLY in this that we will be able to operate and move in wherever He sends us.  Without it we can stir a crowd with many words but will lack the power and anointing to deliver, heal, and resurrect a people!  Yes RESURRECT!

“It is NOT in words but what you represent!”  Those were the words I heard to LORD say to me as I inquired of Him in regards to the door He is having me walk through in this hour.   In essence, He is saying that it is not in what we speak but what we are carrying –

“For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power.” ~ 1 Cor. 4:20 NASB

As “Glory Carriers” expect for the supernatural as you enter the place He sets your feet upon.  It is not in arrogance but humbleness and confidence in the One who sent you that will cause you to represent and release the glory of God! For this is the purpose of your trials and testing.  It is not to boast nor hold the anointing for yourself but to release it!

That is why the breaking was necessary.  Consider a new vase – it is an instrument to hold what is being poured into it and it remains.  But a cracked vase; one that has shown evidence of being glued several times yet continues to display signs of breakage not only holds what’s being poured into it but it also releases it simultaneously!

A word of warning people of God, you must be mindful and careful to not walk in disbelief.  Your faith must not be mixed with doubt! It becomes strange fire! It will quench the Holy Spirit and He will not be able to perform the miracles because flesh has contaminated the anointing.

That’s why it is crucial that we remain; abide; dwell in the secret place surrendering our flesh at the altar daily. We cannot afford not to!

“You won't [succeed] by might or by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of Armies.”
 ~ Zechariah 4:6 GWT

It is time for the manifestations! As time is drawing near, those who have been appointed and anointed will go forth doing great exploits in the Name of the LORD.  Not because of the many words they bring but because of the Glory and Power they carry and represent!

“These are the miraculous signs that will accompany believers: They will use the power and authority of my name to force demons out of people. They will speak new languages. 18 They will pick up snakes, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them. They will place their hands on the sick and cure them.” 
~ Mark 16: 17-18 GWT

The LORD will confirm you wherever you go! (Mark 16:20)  So now go "Glory Carriers" of the Most High and release His Glory upon the earth as He sends you!

Glory be to God!!
