Dearly Beloved in Christ,
Grace and Peace to you from the One who is the source of all grace and all peace. In Him there is security and rest like no other. His presence is our refuge.
For sometime i have felt the need to put into writing some of the thoughts that have stayed with me during this period!
I believe this is one of the greatest hours of God’s great mercy and abundant grace like not seen before. God is giving us time to prepare ourselves for the times ahead. repent and set things right; acknowledge our shortcomings and our greater need of Him. We may not get another time as such..:). God is also reaching out to a lost mankind ; a mankind that needs to see the living God one more time !
Behold the kindness and the severity of the Lord!
I’ve been amazed at the open heavens during this time! Sometime back a few of us took part in communion. The moment we started ; I sensed ( saw) the Lord come out of me ( if that makes sense.. ? ). Then it seemed as if I became one with Him that it was difficult to tell the difference and as I served the emblems, we had a real encounter with Christ on the cross during that time.
Then, the next most amazing thing I experienced was I knew that we were one with another and when we greeted each other as brothers ; it wasn’t a simple greeting but a real experience of one with another in perfect union.
I realize that this is what it is all about…:)! One with Him and one with His body. I in Christ and He in me and together united in Him in perfect harmony. What a glorious experience; what a great moment now and for all of eternity as the expressions of Christ are seen in me and through each member of his body. Light emanates as Christ is exalted in all splendor through every member of His body things come into existence for the ages to come!!
Just this Monday; I was teaching the students on knowing God and I just ended up talking about the cross. As a result almost everyone present ; had visions of the cross. Christ’s suffering and His accomplished work with such clarity and truth that it made me a bit jealous that I wasn’t experiencing what I was talking to that extent.
It continued again today; students weeping and wailing under the Spirit’s revelation of the cross.
I was once again amazed at God revealing these truths in such a beautiful way and with great clarity to the ones least expected.
I believe we need a fresh revelation of the cross and the extent to which Christ suffered ( one student said he couldn’t differentiate if Christ hanging on the cross was a human being or ? . He was disfigured to that extent ) and all that God accomplished by His exceeding great power ( the same power that crushed the devil , got the keys of death and hades ; that rose Him from the dead,saw Him exalted far above principalities and powers to sit at the right hand of the Father).
I have some more things to write on the workings of God this hour; which will do in an opportune time. Oh!! What glorious days await His bride! Amen and Amen!
In His Grace
