Good Morning, Mighty Woman of God! I pray that you are doing well this morning. Have a blessed and prosperous day. I speak blessings of love, peace and joy and may you walk in our Lord Jesus Christ grace as you seek after Him.
(John 11:4 and John 11:38-44), When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. (39-44), Jesus said, Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, said to him, Lord, by this time he stinks: for he has been dead four days. Jesus said to her, Said I not unto thee, that if you will believe, you thou shall see the glory of God? Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hear me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. And when he had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave clothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus said unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
As I was in my quiet time with the Lord, He gave me the title, "Come Forth". Then I was lead to read the above scriptures. You see, I never take the Word of God out of content but the Holy Spirit gives me the message in a different light so that He will be glorified. I love the Word of God because you can read the same scriptures and get a different interpretation to help you in your current situation.
Notice in verse 4, that Jesus tells Martha and her sister that Lazarus' sickness was not unto death. Jesus could have healed Lazarus but His reason for not doing so was that the Father be glorified, and that they would believe that the Father sent Him.
This is what the Holy Spirit told me to write. "Only I have the ability to raise the dead. My people are spiritually dead. And if they call upon me, I will raise what has been dead in them. I will blow upon them and awaken what has laid dormant for so long. I will take away their stony hearts and they shall rise. I and I alone will loose my people as they call upon me. I will hear them and accept their prayers. My people are in need of a fresh anointing. A new birth in their spirit. I will awaken their spiritual gifts and they will "come forth", so that I be glorified. They will run and not grow weary. They will mount up like eagles and sore away from what has had them bound. They will walk in my purpose, so that I be glorified. "Come Forth", and receive that which I have for you. And the Spirit of the Lord says, loose them and let them go"!
Some of us are still living with a spirit of defeat, even after baptism in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We are still walking in bondage, and have not yet taken off our grave clothes. We were once dead but, Jesus' died, rose again and was ascended into heaven, we were free. No longer bound hand and foot by the devil. The Lord has spoken to the enemy to loose us and let us go! The only purpose is for us to glorify the Lord. We cannot glorify the Lord if we are still walking with an attitude of defeat. The Lord's desire for us is to "Come Forth", take off your grave clothes, pray, and He will hear you. The only stipulation is that you have to call upon Him. "COME FORTH", COME FORTH, COME FORTH!
REMINDER: This is the last day to sign up for the "Women's Conference". The conference is FREE. Believe me, the Lord would not be sending me thousands of miles away from home if He didn't have a blessing for all of us. Be prepared for a mighty move of God, It's time for you to "COME FORTH".
