There are loads of people talking to me about how they want to see greater manifestations of Glory and supernatural in their lives. But, when I tell them that it’s all connected to simply trusting what Jesus has already accomplished, and drinking the simple Gospel, they usually seem a bit off put.
“I don’t want just head knowledge” they say. “I don’t want theology” they say. They seem to think that the declaration of the gospel isn’t strong enough on it’s own to bear the fruit. They are looking for some new secret way. They are looking to become more consecrated, or get something from this guy or that guy, they believe that God has hidden the secret Glory somewhere and we have to seek it out, or do something else to get it.
BUT, LISTEN MY DEAR BELOVEDS!!
Col. 1:26-27 – The mystery hidden for ages and generations is now revealed to his saints. 27 To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
The secret has been revealed!! There is NO OTHER way to manifest Glory other than realizing Christ in you!! Faith comes by hearing!! As you hear of how he has loved you and united Himself with you perfectly and inseparably, you will manifest Glory!!
Rom. 1:16-17 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
Hearing the Gospel is not just lifeless theology! Remembering and looking deeply into the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus and what it reveals to you and about you will always be the answer!! I guarantee you that there is no other way to manifest Glory. All else is religion and a sham.
If you are looking to something other than the simple gospel, you will not find the power of God. You will not find the love of God. Until you realize that He already found you. He included you in the union of the Godhead in Christ. All things are yours in HIM! The kingdom of heaven is at hand, IN HIM! Hearing and realizing that is ALWAYS the ANSWER to EVERYTHING! It’s GOOD NEWS!!! Look no further!! He’s given it all to you TODAY as a free gift!!
