Right now the body of Christ🌎 is in a time⏳⏳ of testing. Every area that is not FULLY submitted, yielded and healed is being exposed, revealed and brought to the surface. Are you feeling a sense of attack? Are you feeling like the intensity has ramped up? Many have reported experiencing these things. Personally, we (my husband and I) feel as though we are in a pot of boiling oil and which has gotten so hot that all the things in us that have not been completely purified are bubbling up to the surface. The bubbles are popping and the stench of our junk is wafting up as they release.
Some of it manifests as being emotionally sensitive, charged, and on edge. Sometimes a misunderstanding of intent or just being plain irritated with one another causes added frustration.
We cannot run from addressing our junk anymore. Do you have unhealed trauma? mommy/daddy issues? What about cycles that keep repeating themselves over and over again? Do you find yourself coming back around the same mountains over again?
If so, it is time to CONFRONT THE JUNK. It's time to be honest with ourselves. It is time to allow GOD into each and every place that has been hiding in the "junk rooms" of our selves. The junk room is a place where you toss thoughts, emotions, experiences that you just don't want to deal with, so you toss it in there with the rest of the stuff that's too hard to face.
So, what's the problem with that? Out of sight, out of mind. Ignorance is bliss right? The problem is that it still exists in the house (YOU) and it will seep out one way or another. It will eventually bubble up to the surface. It's still there whether you want to admit it or not. BUT! There is a purpose in it all!
1 Cor 3:12 But if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each one’s work will be clearly shown [for what it is]; for the day [of judgment] will disclose it, because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality and character and worth of each person’s work. (AMP BIBLE)
The fire of God is for the purification of our hearts and minds. It comes to confront all the wood, hay and straw.
Remember I said my husband and I feel as if we are in a boiling pot of oil? Well, the oil represents the Presence of God, the anointing of His Spirit. Don't get out of the OIL. Don't try to cut the process short. My husband keeps hearing the Spirit say to him, " Trust the Process" AND "Don't Rush the Process". It may seem much easier to keep pushing it down but just as a boiling pot with a lid on will eventually boil over and make a huge mess, so it is with our unresolved JUNK.
James 1:2My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3knowing that the testing of your faith produces [a]patience. 4But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be [b]perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
We MUST CO-OPERATE with the work of the LORD IN US! He desires to Heal us and make us WHOLE (nothing broken, nothing missing).
Gal 5:22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23[g]gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
The Lord wants " no place in us that's in agreement with the enemy
Jn 14:30 I will not talk with you much more, for the prince (evil genius, ruler) of the world is coming. And he has no claim on Me🎯. [He has nothing in common with Me; there is nothing in Me that belongs to him, and he has no power over Me.] (AMP BIBLE)
In every area 👁we are facing, we MUST ALLOW this refining FIRE🔥🔥🔥 to do its work. As with everything in life, it's not JUST about US, but it's about everyone that we will/ can affect. It's about eternal impact. How can we be the change in any area if we are walking around wounded and have little spots in our armor that is missing? We MUST stay in the pot and WORK to do what's necessary in order for us to 🎶BE ALL THAT WE CAN BE, IN THE ARMY RESERVES🎶🎶).
THE LORD has been preparing a people that had enlisted as reserves but He is officially calling all to ACTIVE DUTY! Some of us have not been ALL IN.
The church had been in an incorrect position of Defense and we are being RIGHTED to a position of OFFENSE!!
Again, but we're being called 🎺🛎🚨not only to ACTION, BUT TO ARMS!!
Let the FIRE do it's work.
Let the OIL do it's work.
Co-Operate with the Holy Spirit.
Kill EVERY place that is not submitted to Christ
REMOVE any place of agreement or commonality with the enemy of your souls!
Come ON!! The Body of Christ NEEDS YOU IN POSITION!
A Lost and Dying World needs you WHOLE!
