The Fire of God!

Many of you have celebrated the launch of my new book, "The Way Makers - Ambassadors for Christ..."  Thank you so much for your support!  However, there is an urgency in my spirit.
"The Way Makers - Ambassadors for Christ, Preparing the Way of the Lord" is more than a Christian leaders' guide complemented by personal testimony.

Although part of my call is to edify, equip and empower men and women of God who believe they have an end-time assignment; it is much more than that!

It is an ALL-CALL to the Body of Christ, to the Church of the Living God, that God Himself is sending the fire of His Spirit to purify and sanctify His Bride, to present her to Himself without spot or wrinkle.

1 Corinthians 3:9-15 
"For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire."
Jesus Christ is the foundation that was laid in many of our lives; but, how have we built upon that foundation.  Some of us have built our lives on good works, our jobs, our degrees, our pay checks, our spouses, even our children.  We no longer seek God as the source of our entire lives.  Not just for finances, but for our healing, our deliverance, even our sanctification.  So much of the time, we depend on ourselves, our own ingenuity, skills, talent and abilities, even social media, to get results. Sometimes, our competence is a curse because we run the risk of being far less dependent on God and more self-reliant.  We cannot build our hopes on nothing less than Jesus Christ and His righteousness.  All other ground is sinking sand.  So then, what shall we say to these things?   

The fire of the Holy Spirit is being poured out in these last days.  It is a cleansing fire that purifies of all that is not of God.  We are God's building and anything that we've built in our lives that does not line up with His will and purpose, will be burned.  Only what we do for Christ will last!  This is the message of The Way Makers:  Prepare the Way of the Lord!

The Bride must make herself ready! Not by good works, or more degrees or more conferences and retreats, but by waiting on the Lord, spending time in His Presence, and allowing Him to do a cleansing work, a transformational work in us (Is. 40:31).  It is He who works in us both to will and to do His good pleasure, but He does not work without our cooperation, and there are those whom He has called to lead the way - to raise up an army of Ambassadors for Christ, through whom He makes His appeal:  Be reconciled to God! (2 Cor.5:20)  First repentance, then the power of the Holy Spirit to be His witnesses - His Ambassadors to prepare the Way of the Lord.

Well, what has Christ called us to do?  If there is any question, we have a movie drama that brings His command to us in HD:  A.D. The Bible Continues!  He gave us our end-time assignment on the Mt. Olivet in the last episode of these epic production:  "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel in  Judea, Samaria and the uttermost part of the world, teaching them what I have commanded you, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and I will be with you always, even to the end of the age."  Matt. 28:18

It is time to re-establish the foundation of Jesus Christ.  All that is not of God will be consumed by His cleansing fire, and re-established by the Holy Spirit.  It is not by power or might, but by His spirit.  Every crooked place in us shall be made straight, every rough place smooth, every valley exalted and every mountain/hill made low, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it!!  And we shall be presented to Him a glorious bride, without spot or wrinkle!

As God's special messenger, this is the message I am called to declare.  It is a serious message.  Jesus is coming back!  If you know that God has an end-time purpose for your life, and you believe God is calling you to lead the way - to prepare the Way of the Lord, I want to hear from you.  Go to Angelic Grace Ministries and join our mailing list so that I can contact you for news of upcoming leadership events.

It's harvest time; prepare the Way of the Lord!
