Time To Truly Live!
Friend, it is time to go to the next level in God. The time to truly live in the God-giving potentials you carry on the inside. You might say you have heard this before in fact you have become disillusioned in hearing this as nothing had happened since the Lord spoke to you. The good news is, if you are experiencing this pain it is not for you to despair because there is a solution only if you will listen to the instruction and carry it out. Every promise of God carries with it an instruction which must be obeyed for the promises to come to pass. God has a process of bringing His sons to the next level in Him and there are no shortcuts. When it was time for the Lord Jesus Christ to go into the next level in His Ministry on earth, He didn’t go through any shortcut but followed the process. In John 12:20-36, the Bible says some Greeks wanted to see Him. This should have made Him glad and excited as He was going to be recognized internationally. But He declared something that was strange to the hearing of the people then and even now, but it is a standard of Heaven for any man that desires to enter the next level in God. In verse 24 of the chapter He said: “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.” This goes to show that if we desire to enter the next level with the Lord and manifest the gifts inside of us, we must die! The description here says we are the grain of wheat, we must not only fall to the ground but must die: a death to self. Except this is done we cannot yield any tangible harvest for the Master. So many did fall but refused to die and so only produced scanty and unfit crops. But to produce bountiful and healthy harvest that will last, we must die! It then follows that the Lord has put within that one grain a bountiful yield if only it will agree to die. Friend, you carry so much greatness inside of you and only when you die to self and its works can this be manifested. Paul says he dies daily!!! One thing was for sure; his life produced and is still producing bountiful harvests for the Master. Don’t be afraid, we are not discussing the physical death here, but a death to self and the world. We must die daily to the works of the flesh as enumerated in Galatians 5:19-21 in order to be who we have been created to be. The world system declares that fools die many times but in Christ, to be wise we must die daily! Friend, in what areas has the Holy Spirit being speaking to you that you are yet to yield? Your yielding puts those areas to death and a beautiful healthy and lasting crop is harvested. If Christ had not lay down and put to death all fleshly desires and ambitions, His life, death and resurrection will not still be yielding such bountiful harvest. Are you still holding on to your appetites, ambitions, and attitudes that are clearly stopping you from going on to the next level? The time to die to them and live the life of victory has come so that you can go into the next level with God yielding bountiful and healthy harvests to His glory!
