We are getting to the time of year when we will read and hear a flurry of prophecies about God doing a new thing in this new season, about God opening up Heaven and pouring out His Spirit on this part of the world or that part of the world, about God sending revival in this new time of more anointing in this new season of more.
God is not about to do a new thing; He has done “His thing”.
He sent Jesus, then sent the Holy Spirit and has given us His Word; as I said, He has done “His thing”.
Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father, and His work is finished (Hebrews 10 v 12).
God is not about to open up Heaven and pour out His Spirit; He has already opened up Heaven and poured out His Spirit at Pentecost and according to my Bible He has not gone back yet, so He cannot be poured out again.
I used to wonder why God would pour out His Spirit on one part of the world and not on another. Was it to do with how good one part of the world was in comparison to another? Was it to do with how good His church was?
Now I know that this is not the case (through rightly dividing the Bible); God has already poured out His Spirit on the whole world, and if He had not He would not pour out on one part and withhold from the rest as he has no favourites, He is no respecter of persons (Acts 10 v 34).
If you trust in Jesus, have the indwelling Holy Spirit and have His Bible you have all that you need from God already; the rest is now up to you!
You already have all spiritual blessings (Ephesians 1 v 3) and all you need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1 v 3).
You have all the revival you need already inside you (the Holy Spirit) or in your hand (the Bible).
This type of prophetic words increase the passivity of the church; we are always waiting for God to do a new thing, always waiting for a new season, always waiting for a fresh anointing, always waiting for more, more, more.
If this is indeed a new time or new season, it should be a new time or new season for the church to realise what it already has through the finished work of Jesus Christ.
It should be a new season of stopping waiting for God to do more.
It should be a new time of realisation of the power and authority that we already have from Jesus and through His indwelling Holy Spirit.
It should be a new season of understanding the importance of His Inspired and Holy Written Word, and a new time of rightly diving the Scriptures.
It is not a new season for God to move and do a new thing!
Speak tis out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus Christ, thank you that you have already poured out your Spirit, and than you for the Bible”.
John 19 v 30…..When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished, and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost
