Recently the Lord has been speaking to me about the kingdom of God, breakthrough and increase. The Lord has been saying to me that kingdom people are about to receive kingdom increase that is designed for kingdom breakthrough. The Lord is setting us up to be able to go get the harvest and bring them in to disciple them. We are about to see pioneers and forerunners lead ministries that will bring in a harvest and then bring Reformation to them. The Lord has been stirring my heart to preach and teach the exact message Jesus taught which was the kingdom of God.
Luke 4:43 says, "But He said to them, 'I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also, for this is why I was sent.'" It is time that we start preaching the same message Jesus and the apostles taught. They walked in great power and authority and brought breakthrough and increase everywhere they went. They preached the kingdom of God for kingdom purposes.
Many people in this next season will receive an increase in their life spiritually, physically, financially and emotionally. These increases are for kingdom breakthrough and kingdom purposes. Yes God loves you and wants you healed and set free! But don't just think this increase in your life is for only you. Everything God is doing and will do is to advance His kingdom in and through your life in this hour. Jesus prayed in Matthew 6:10, "Your kingdom come;
Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven." Jesus is at the right hand of the Father interceding for you and I! We must find out what Heaven is saying over our lives, ministries, businesses, churches, cities and nations. Now is the time for kingdom Increase! We must make sure we steward the increase properly.
Proverbs 4:25-27 says, "Let your eyes look right on, and let your eyelids look straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or to the left; remove your foot from evil."
In this upcoming season, we need to be laser focused on the things of the Lord. Do not allow circumstances or situations to get you off track. When breakthrough comes, we must make sure we are ready to walk in the breakthrough and steward it well. Don't wear yourself out worrying. Your breakthrough is coming. Be confident in the faithfulness of God so that when your breakthrough comes, you're no too tired to walk in it! Remember, you don't get stronger in the good times; rather, you grow the most during seasons of trials, tests and tribulation. Warfare seasons are meant to strengthen us so we can receive our breakthrough.
Sometimes the breakthrough is simply the end of a process God was taking you through toward a certain destination! You must learn to endure and learn from the process. Don't sit around and cry or complain. You won't learn what God needs to teach you for your next level assignment. If you don't break, you will have your breakthrough! God will equip you in the hard times, these times will be full of pressure, but you will come out ready for your next season. Your breakthrough is at hand!
Don't look at where you are; look at where you're going. Make sure you are connected to the right people in this season. Surround yourself with only those who will help you walk in the purposes and plans God has over your life. Hebrews 6:12 says, "So that you may not be lazy, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises." The hour we are in is a special time for the body of Christ. We must make sure the people around us are spiritually strong. Grow close to the ones who have been through hard times and followed God all the way through until they got their breakthrough. Align yourself with people who stay in the battle until they inherit the promises and the purpose that God has designed for them!
Second Chronicles 16:9 says, "For the eyes of the Lord move about on all the earth to strengthen the heart that is completely toward Him." Whenever God finds someone who has made their relationship with Him the most important thing, He will show Himself strong to that person. These are the ones who are usually on the cutting edge of what God is saying over regions. These are the people who always have a fresh song or word that is being released. Matthew 5:6 says, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled." So many people are not tapping into the promises God has for them because they really don't have a proper understanding about the miraculous power God has given us. We must understand that heaven is the place of creation, and Earth is the place that it's manifested. When we get our hearts in proper alignment with what the Lord is saying, we will start to see this kingdom breakthrough flood every part of our lives.
John 15:4 says, "Remain in Me, as I also remain in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, neither can you, unless you remain in Me." The Lord is looking for the ones who will receive a word from Him and hang on to that word no matter what comes. We must hold tightly to the word of God, not what the critics may say and ignore the situations that are trying to destroy your purpose. The Lord longs for the person whose heart is dependent on Him. Psalm 143:9 says, "Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies; I flee unto You for my protection."
I feel strongly in my spirit that we are about to start walking in the fullness of God. As believers, we are about to understand the authority and power that is available to us. Ephesians 3:19-20 in the Passion Translation says this, "And [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God's presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself]. Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us."
Luke 10:19 (MEV) says, "Look, I give you authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. And nothing shall by any means hurt you." What are we doing with this great authority and power that God has given us? We have delegated authority to change and shift every atmosphere that we walk into. Luke 9:1-2 says, "Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases. And He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick." When we, the children of God, can truly grasp the power that is available to us, we will start to see breakthrough and an extreme increase over people's lives for the advancement of the kingdom of God.
Ephesians 6:10 in the Passion Translation says, "Now finally, my beloved ones, be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you." God brings His explosive power into us so that we can understand the authority that has been given to us. Then we are supposed to let the power within us leak out into every single part of our lives and onto every person we come in contact with.
The apostle Paul understood the power of walking in the fullness of God. Romans 15:29 (MEV) says, "And I know that when I come to you, I shall come in the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ." Paul was completely convinced that when he visited a group of people, the gifts of the Spirit would be manifested. No matter what the people needed, Paul felt confident in his walk with God that the fullness of God would be present to minister to the people. Paul's life was one that was 100 percent completely devoted to God. Romans 1:11 says, "For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be strengthened."
Paul had such a relationship with the Lord that when he went to minister, the impartation of the gifts of the Spirit of God would manifest themselves in the lives of the people he ministered to. Paul knew they would receive these gifts and keep them until the end. We must understand that this delegated authority and power that God has given us is so real and necessary for today. Activate the kingdom of God that is already inside of you, and let it bring the kingdom increase into your life for kingdom breakthrough!
