Matthew 28:18-20 (AMP) 18 Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority (all power of absolute rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations (help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words), baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always (remaining with you perpetually, regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion), even to the end of the age.”
Jesus The Christ, before ascending to the right-hand position of our God, charges His disciples (every person who would believe and follow His example). He states plainly He is our God’s Chosen One, the One Whom our Heavenly Father anointed and appointed to wield the fulness of His glory, authority, and power (Colossians 2:9). He makes plain His God-given privilege of sharing this authority and power with believers, so that the will of our Heavenly Father shall be done. Lastly, He lets us know He will be with us in and through all things and times, period. In summary, Jesus deputizes all believers with the right to wield the power of God and access all that He is; He authorizes us to move in His anointing, for the purpose of enforcing the will of our God on the kingdom of darkness and throughout creation.
FOLLOW OUR LEAD ENFORCER
Hebrews 12:2 (TPT) We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because His heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be His, He endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!
Watchmen all over the world, Jesus The Christ, the walking, talking Word of God, is the Source of our faith. He authored our God’s Person, mind, authority, and power in the flesh, as His Living Tutorial. He expressed our God for our learning, that we may be equipped to endure, that we be encouraged, have hope and confidence in our Heavenly Father’s heart, authority and power. He walked out and completed the faith life of a son of God, leaving us a clear example of the Way, Truth, and Life originally intended for us, by our God (John 14:6).
Soldiers of the Cross all over the world, let us make full use of all that our God has given us, through and in Jesus The Christ. What a joy it is to watch The Christ moving among the people in the Scripture, expressing the heart, mind, authority and power of our God! His Words in Matthew 28:18-20 clearly reveal our God’s expectation that we do the same. In fact, our God expects us to think like Jesus The Christ, and to do the works that He did (through faith, in the authority vested in Jesus (using His name), backed by heaven’s Consuming Fire power!:
Philippians 2:5 (NCV) In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus.
Acts 10:38 (TPT) Jesus of Nazareth was anointed by God with the Holy Spirit and with great power. He did wonderful things for others and divinely healed all who were under the tyranny of the devil, for God anointed Him.
No matter what we encounter, we must remember we are backed by a Loving. Sovereign Heavenly Father, who lives in us by His Holy Spirit and Word. We must remember that He works all things together (good and not so good) FOR OUR GOOD, as we man our posts on the wall of the spirit; we must remember that His expectation and purpose is His completion of our transformation and conformity (of our thinking, speaking, and acting) into image of Jesus the Christ (Romans 8:28-29).
THE CHRIST’S EXPECTATION
Watchmen, let us consider what our God is saying when He authored the following:
John 14:11-13 (KJV) 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very works’ sake. 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. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
Jesus The Christ’s expectation is clear, that we press into faith in our God, who He says He is, what He had done in Him, and what He will yet manifest through us, according to His will (IT IS WRITTEN)! Think about it; faith is one thing The Christ will surely look for when He returns (Luke 18:8b)!
CREATION’S EXPECTION; THE BELIEVER’S EXPECTATION
Romans 8:19-23 (CJB) 19 The creation waits eagerly for the sons of God to be revealed; 20 for the creation was made subject to frustration — not willingly, but because of the one who subjected it. But it was given a reliable hope 21 that it too would be set free from its bondage to decay and would enjoy the freedom accompanying the glory that God’s children will have. 22 We know that until now, the whole creation has been groaning as with the pains of childbirth; 23 and not only it, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we continue waiting eagerly to be made sons — that is, to have our whole bodies redeemed and set free.
Creation’s expectation is that the born-again sons of the Most-High God take their places in Jesus The Christ and call all things back into order. Creation is groaning, waiting for us to enforce Christ’s victory and dominion over satan. Creation waits for us to use the gifts and tools of heaven to strip the kingdom of darkness of all its pseudo power (stolen through deception), by thinking, speaking, and acting in the Light of the Holy Spirit within. We are flames of The Consuming Fire (our Heavenly Father God); He has charged the wind to work with us in decreeing, declaring, demanding, and commanding that His will be done in the earth and the lives of humanity (Psalm 104:4).
Believers who purpose in our hearts to keep our God as our First Love, discover that the deep in us calls to the deep in our God, yearning to be with Him. We discover and understand that while we function in this world (by our God’s power, Love, and soundness of mind), we are not native nor subject of the spirit of this world; our home in heavenly places, in Jesus The Christ (Acts 17:28; 2 Timothy 1:7; John 8:23). We have learned to trust our God, and while we walk in our God’s diligence and wisdom among humanity, we are unafraid to declare, “Even so, come Lord Jesus!”
AS HE IS, SO ARE WE!
1 John 4:16-18 (CJB) 16 Also we have come to know and trust the love that God has for us. God is love; and those who remain in this love remain united with God, and God remains united with them. 17 Here is how love has been brought to maturity with us: as the Messiah is, so are we in the world. This gives us confidence for the Day of Judgment. 18 There is no fear in love. On the contrary, love that has achieved its goal gets rid of fear, because fear has to do with punishment; the person who keeps fearing has not been brought to maturity in regard to love.
Beloved watchmen, we understand our God desires us to walk in His character with moral excellence (holiness). We must remember that He understands our plight, that we are no match for satan without Him, that we are NEVER without Him and His Love. Our fully committed hearts are protected by His Person, Love, authority and power, as we are redeemed from the hand of evil by the shed blood of Jesus The Christ.
When we stumble, we must remember our God’s Love, purpose, authority, and power. We must repent; get up; plead the blood’s protection and redemption, and wield the matchless Sword of our God’s Truth and Light, destroying demonic kingdoms as we go. We must remain faithful, knowing we are uprooting, tearing down, destroying and demolishing the kingdoms of darkness, as we build and plant the kingdom of our God in the hearts and lives of humanity. Remember, the root of the fig tree was dead long before the full manifestation of its demise; we have already fully conquered in Jesus The Christ:
Mark 11:11-14; 20-24 (AMP) 11 Jesus entered Jerusalem and went to the temple enclosure; and after looking around at everything, He left for Bethany with the twelve disciples, because it was already late in the day. 12 On the next day, when they had left Bethany, He was hungry. 13 Seeing at a distance a fig tree in leaf, He went to see if He would find anything on it. But He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14 He said to it, “No one will ever eat fruit from you again!” And His disciples were listening to what He said.
20 In the morning, as they were passing by, the disciples saw that the fig tree had withered away from the roots up. 21 And remembering, Peter said to Him, “Rabbi (Master), look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered!” 22 Jesus replied, “Have faith in God constantly. 23 I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea!’ and does not doubt in his heart (in God’s unlimited power), but believes that what he says is going to take place, it will be done for him, in accordance with God’s will. 24 For this reason I am telling you, whatever things you ask for in prayer (in accordance with God’s will), believe with confident trust that you have received them, and they will be given to you.
TAKE AUTHORITY; ENFORCE THE WILL OF OUR GOD!
Watchmen, we are called and appointed to comprehend the mind, will, purposes, times and seasons of God. Our natural and spiritual lives are hidden in Jesus The Christ, as He anoints us to decree and declare His will be done in the uttermost parts of the world and the innermost parts of human lives. We are deputized to command and demand the will of our God be done in the heavens, the earth, the underworld, and the depths of the sea.
Soldiers of the cross, our God has authorized us (in Christ) to arrest, bind, cast the enemy and his cohorts into utter darkness to await His instruction or judgment, according to His will. Our God has authorized us to destroy the works of darkness throughout creation. He has appointed that we take back ground (spiritual and natural), knowing the power and life in the shed blood of Jesus speaks on our behalf. Let us be about our Father’s business (as is our Christ); let us man our posts unafraid, knowing that Our God, His Christ, His Word, His Holy Spirit, and His heavenly host back us, at the name of Jesus, spoken in faith! Hallelujah!
WATCHMEN DO NOT BE DECEIVED NOR AFRAID!
The kingdoms of the world are falling;
The strongholds of satan are crumbling!
We are enforcing our God’s will!
We are doing our part to manifest the Christ’s victory!
Stay on the wall; Man your posts. It will manifest!
MOST BELOVED FATHER GOD,
Thank You for Your grace, Your Loving help to be and do the impossible. You will find faith in Your watchmen when You return. We are full of faith and we are manifesting Your will; we are manifesting The Christ’s victory in the earth, and in the lives of humanity, by the authority and power of Your Person, Your Word, and Your Holy Spirit.
IT IS FINISHED! EVEN SO, COME LORD JESUS!
This we pray in Jesus name, and it is so; amen!
