Divine connections in these days are critical for the Church like never before. The fulfillment of God’s purpose for our lives, fulfillment of God’s destiny He has planned for each of us will depend greatly on us divinely connecting with certain ministries.
As I went about getting dressed today the Holy Spirit started speaking to me how important my connection with the ministries I am joined to today is to what God wants to do through my life! It really became powerful in my spirit, the power of connecting with ministries. I have heard it over and over again from other ministries but the Holy Spirit spoke it loudly in my spirit and I got excited because I saw the anointing that was on these ministries I am connected to now operating in me as a result of connecting with them, I saw what that connection has stirred in me and I saw as a result of these divine connections certain gifts that were in me now operating through me and also I am getting even a more clear picture of the calling on my life. I am so excited about my divine connections like never before!
All my Christian life I have been associated with ministries. I grew up in the Methodist Church. In my early 20s I became associated with those who were involved in the Charismatic movement. And I received the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking with other tongues. Oh my! How glad I am that I stepped out and received this gift of speaking with other tongues! I know without a doubt my Christian life would not be where it is today without this gift. Then I got involved in ministry where the prophetic was taught and also the grace message. Oh my, thank you Jesus! This ministry truly opened up another important aspect of walking in the spirit and allow God to speak through me to others what He wanted to speak and prophesy in this earth for Kingdom purposes. And the grace message, it certainly opened my eyes to how I had gotten into works in certain areas and then the grace of God could not work affectively in my life. Later God lead me to learn more and more about the operation of His Kingdom and then God led me to a ministry that is called for Kingdom living and operation in this world system. Then I also knew I had a calling to minister to leaders, which at the present I am part of a group who ministers to two local mayors and I am able to pray for them and speak into their lives. I also became aware of another ministry who teaches about taking the Kingdom of God into the seven mountains; family, education, religion, government, the arts, media and business or finances. This was again a divine connection. Now at the present time I am prompted, almost pushed by the Spirit of God to connect with ministries that are teaching about living out of your spiritual senses rather than the five physical senses, using the gift of discernment because of all the deception and the anti-Christ spirit that is working in the earth, the glory of God, an open heaven with the glory manifested with signs and wonders and creative miracles, the ministry of angels, etc.
I believe divine connections in the body of Christ are also what God desires for all His Church all over the world in order for us to effectively reach this world. I believe the revelation of the glory (manifested presence of God) is crucial for the survival of the Church. It is staying in the glory of God that is going to open up this world to hear the Gospel, the Good News, with signs and wonders following. The Church has been so long behind the four walls and now we also are coming out of the closet and out of the four walls and we are ministering to people wherever we go; at work, school, play, business meetings, shopping, etc. I am immediately reminded of Isaiah 60:
Isa 60:1-3 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.KJV
Hag 2:9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: KJV
I believe this is talking about the glorious Church who has an intimate relationship with God just as Moses had and the glory of God will be so evident in our lives that even our faces will expose the very brightness of the glory that is in us and around us just as Moses’ face shone after he came off of the mountain spending 40 days in the presence of God.
So our connections are so important like never before.
I just realized that when I started my ministry here at God’s Word Alive I had the great desire to encourage and empower Christians with the Word of God, empowering them with the Word of God to speak only over their lives. But just in the short time I have been on the web God has enlarged my vision to the present where I desire to not only encourage and empower Christians with the Word of God but that they are empowered to live not as mere men/women out of the vanity of their minds but as the new man in Christ Jesus, in Christ’s righteousness and in the glory of God.
So I want to remind you, as the Lord did to me this morning, that your connection with my ministry here at God’s Word Alive will mean that the anointing on this ministry will become yours as well, which I believe is living by faith and not by sight, speaking the Word of God only, divine healing and divine health that has been such a long part of my own personal life and my family’s, experiencing the unconditional love and grace of God, financial prosperity and more.
As I grow and as I continue to share with you what God is pouring into my heart by His Spirit through my connection with other ministries, I will be able to minister to you in more and more in other areas that are crucial to the end time body of Christ of which we are a part.
The Holy Spirit reminded me of divine connections in the bible that proved extremely beneficial to certain individuals. Their lives were changed forever with the connections they made. The first person who came to mind was Elisha and Elijah. With Elisha’s connection with Elijah, Elisha was able to do far more miracles then his mentor Elijah. I was also reminded of our Lord Jesus Christ and his disciples. They were fishermen and tax collectors, etc. and yet with their association with Jesus their ministry produced miracles as well and in the books of acts it says of them,
Acts 17:6 These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also; KJV
Now with our daily connection with our living Christ and His body on the earth, we are going to be fulfilling the prophecy Jesus spoke over us His disciples today,
John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. KJV
This is why I count my connection with ministries from this day forth no small thing but crucial to the purposes and plans God has for my life; the ministries I connected with in the past, the ministries I am connected with today and those ministries I will continue to connect with in the future.
If I had not connected with the Billy Graham crusade that came to my town as a counselor, I would not have met my husband, Wayne. So God even has our own personal interests at heart when it comes to divine connections!
Just this past week, I realized how important a ministry is my husband and I have joined that is a prophetic Christian investment group. My husband and I have gotten many prophetic words over the years that we were to be stewards of God’s Kingdom wealth. After we joined this group which is so about the Kingdom business, which I loved; then I started seeing how just joining this prophetic group I am developing my sensitivity to hearing God speak to me about finances and investing. I would not have had this greater sensitivity to God speaking to me about this sort of thing through songs, visions, dreams, etc. had we not connected to this group. I am so excited because this group teaches Kingdom principles and Kingdom living.
A few years back I became so angry at all the deception of this world system and the stock market. To me it all was becoming a god to even the children of God and not the living God and the provision of His Kingdom! I just hated what I was seeing happen to God’s people with this world’s system making them so dependent on their jobs they couldn’t live according to God’s Word and His plan for their lives because they had to depend on a job and this world’s system and they were getting farther and farther away from placing their faith in God and His Kingdom for provision and I was angry because of the bondage of debt many had gotten into because the world system preached to them debt was good. Now with this group being all about the Lord’s leading in investing and such it has become exciting. The Lord even gave me a song a few days ago and when Wayne and I watched the online Saturday morning meeting of this Christian investment club I found that the same song I had gotten from the Lord was the same song this group’s leader had gotten this same week. Now with a group praying together, prophesying together and receiving words from the Lord together concerning investments; this just means this group anointing will flow more and more and more and more right decisions will be made. With this connection I am realizing the responsibility as the steward over the Kingdom wealth is serious business and I see things differently than I ever did before about this stewardship. I also love this group because they always begin with prayer and make confessions of God’s Word before the meetings, and you know if you have been around God’s Word Alive that confessions are important to me! How about when an investment group for the Kingdom speaks the Word? Wow!
I heard a minister of God speak this one time, “You can become a millionaire in a day.” Now I believe that is possible even in a bad economy because when God’s people join together, are divinely connect together and seek God, anything can happen! I am reminded of the words, “Little is much when God is in it.” This may seem like a small thing to the world but God always uses the foolish to confound the wise, He uses the weak, the little, the uneducated, the nobodies so that He gets all the glory and none can brag they did it. Praise our God!
So I am excited with the divine connections I have made in the past and I am really excited with the divine connections I have today and will have tomorrow because I am encouraged and strengthened with these who have the passions and leadings of the Spirit of God that I have for that time, whether it be for a short time or long term.
Let me pray for you a prayer for divine connections.
Father, I pray for these who are reading this blog right now. I pray for divine connections for each of them. They will find the people, the ministries with the same passion you have placed in their hearts so that they too will be encouraged and empowered and be challenged as I have been to step out in the gifts and the calling you have given them. I pray this divine connection with my ministry here at God’s Word Alive will bring a love for You, Your Word, speaking the Word only over their lives, live in divine healing and divine health, receive the hope that is on these pages and on this ministry, that they live no longer as mere men/women out of the vanity of their minds but as the new man in Christ Jesus, in Christ’s righteousness and in the glory of God. Connecting to God’s Word Alive I pray they experience your presence, your power and your glory each visit. In the name of Jesus I sincerely pray this prayer. Amen and amen.
