It is my belief that a result of being fully baptized in Love is having power in the Spirit. From the purity of Love emanates the power to proclaim the following:
18 “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”
Past ministries have operated in some aspect of this proclamation but for whatever reason have fallen short. Members of our Bible study are determined to press in: asking, seeking, and knocking. We choose to be chosen. We make ourselves available for the marriage feast. We are willing to die daily for all mankind. We desire to fully operate in the fullness of the Spirit in order to minister life to all those in need. We expect to be endued with this same power from On High. Who can be trusted with this power but those who will walk fully and completely in Love!
The Narrow Way
Matthew 7:13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
We are committed to being the “few” who find The Way. What will we do upon finding it? We will bring it back for the benefit of all mankind. I believe the “few” are the Remnant we have been studying in our Sunday Bible study broadcasts. Many are too busy to be willing to set aside the required time, energy, and focus to find this Way. Their priorities are based in this current system, not the Kingdom. That is okay. Each will receive the reward of their priorities. This path is not for everyone to pursue. It requires pressing in because the gate is narrow and the way is difficult. As for me, not a problem.
Those who have a passion for the things of THE LORD will press in. Those who have embraced the revelation of Love will be rewarded and will be endued with Power from On High. We expect to be counted as good fruit from the teaching of Jesus Christ and the Apostles. The temptations of the devil were necessary as the final test of maturity of Jesus before He began His ministry. As we die to the flesh, the devil has no foothold in us either. We also expect to operate in this same power as our elder brother. Now is the time!
