You will Cross and the Victors Cup will be Waiting
Greg shares with us a fresh prophetic word coming from Chuck Pierce entitled, “You will Cross and the Victors Cup will be Waiting”. This is an encouraging word telling us a confirming word lining up with EZ 12 “I am a Sign to You,” that a shift is taking place; the old ways of doing things will no longer work but God is doing a new thing. He says a new movement has entered the earth and the Army of God will be moving with a sound of Worship. It is time to act and to break loose from captivity or else we will lose our authority. Chuck also shares that supply is being loosed for more giving towards the advancement of the Kingdom of God. And the giants that have kept you from giving are coming down but warns to let go of these giants so that you do not fall with them.
God is shifting you in a new way; you will now run with the end in mind. He must narrow your way so that you can focus with the end in mind. Chuck says in the next 40 days we will see this shift taking place.
Tragedy: Behavioral modification or God’s Punitive damages
Charles Stanley who is a Pastor and founder of In Touch Ministries gives us God’s perspective on three questions being asked concerning the Boston Marathon bombings. Does God plan these tragic events? Does God Know about them before they happen? If he knew about them then why didn’t he prevent them? God says my ways are not your ways my thoughts are not your thoughts. Charles goes on to say that the doctors that are day after day killing babies are no different than those who blow up buildings and kill thousands of people. Why is the church silent in this? Many have a perspective of God, saying that all ways lead to heaven but that just does not line up with his word. He goes on to say the only way to heaven is through Jesus Christ and we need to know God’s ways which we only learn through abiding in his word. God answers the prayers of his children but he also chastens them when they get out of line. People who don’t understand this won’t get it. We are asking God to violate his nature by asking him to overlook all of the immorality that is taking place. He goes on to say that little by little we have been removing God… we have pulled the Bible and prayer out of schools we are worshipping the body over God, there have been over 50 million abortions. An ungodly world doesn’t want to be reminded of their sin. The Ten Commandments, crosses and the Name of Jesus are being removed from society because it convicts people of their sin. Godly discipline is about hardships that change our behavior not punitive damages. God loves us but there will be an increase of things. It is time for us to respond Charles says.
