If you have heard me speak, you know that I always mention, especially to leaders, the importance of your quiet time with Christ daily so the Holy Spirit can speak into your spirit the things that Christ has for you that day. (Rom 8:16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,)
Heb 1:1-2 directs us “God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds (NKJV)
How does Christ speak to us? Through his word and through the Holy Spirit.
Jesus said an astonishing thing in John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. (NKJV) When the Son of God says it’s best for him to get out of the way, we had better listen carefully!
His plan was to send someone who could help us in our Christian walk: The Holy Spirit.
Jesus spoke in John 16:13-15 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you. ( NKJV)
I recently sent a word (attached) that the Lord gave me for TMCI this year. One of the opening lines was “…the key is to draw even closer to Christ”. Another key phrase in the Word I received is “This is a year of substantial blessing on those who are obeying the Word of God that is given to them”. I feel in my spirit that God is about to give a special word to all TMCI people who take the time to listen to his still small voice. We them must act on that word. We must pray it, and speak it so that it will not come back void. God is releasing much revelation this coming year and it will truly be a year of great spiritual and numerical growth for those who act on the word that God gives them.
I am believing for a great move of God this year in all TMCI ministries.
Be blessed in all that you do,
