Daily Read – Numbers 16:41-18:32; Mark 16:1-20; Psalm 55:1-23; Proverbs 11:7
And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
He who believes and is baptized will be saved;
but he who does not believe will be condemned.
And these signs will follow those who believe:
In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them;
they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
So then, after the Lord had spoken to them,
He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.
And they went out and preached everywhere,
the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.
These are the last words spoken to My disciples before My ascension. They set the course in the establishment of My church throughout the world. Disciples dispersed throughout every nation, tongue and tribe. Multitudes touched by the miracle power of the Holy Spirit through all who believe.
So many of My children do not understand the spiritual power they carry. It is explosive and awaits release to win this world for Me. Instead of going into all the world releasing this power surge to the nations, too many in My body sit complacent in their churches with no clue they are quenching My Holy Spirit.
It's time for My body to repent for bowing to spirits of lethargy and intimidation. It's time for them to rise up and release My fullness to those who are crying out in desperation. This world needs what you have. This world needs a demonstration of My love and power moving through You!
When I ascended, My disciples quickly obeyed and went out preaching everywhere. I do not make empty promises, I keep My Word on everything I speak. When I say I confirm the preaching of My Word with signs, wonders, and miracles, it happens. My disciples experienced this and so will you when you determine to step out of your comfort zone and into My glory zone.
There is nothing more to be done, I gave it all. Now this world waits for you to take a step of faith and go forth. As you do, the sick will be healed, the lame will walk, the blind will see, and the tormented will be set free. This world will change because of your obedience.
Lord Jesus, as a believer, I walk from my home today with a new determination to see Your Kingdom come. Your Kingdom is within me and I choose to let it out splashing it on everyone who crosses my path. I break off all spirits of lethargy, complacency, and even intimidation and send them to the feet of Jesus for judgment. I refuse to allow anything to stop me from moving in the miracle working power that resides within my spirit. When I share the good news of the gospel with others, I expect to see miracles confirming Your Word. Life is about ready to get exciting! Amen!
