The Restoration Of All Things
“Becoming the One New Man”
“Repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away,
What a blessing it was to gather together with many to celebrate JESUS in the FEAST OF PASSOVER on Easter weekend! These feasts, God’s Appointed Times are all about JESUS! God says that there will be a restoration of ALL things. Praise God! He is restoring the Church to our Covenant Roots!
In God’s Word, we study how the Jewish people treated God with great respect. He was the object of loving worship. Their only appropriate response to Him was to love, serve and obey Him.
We personally thank Dr. Robert Heidler for the powerful book he wrote, “The Messianic Church Arising,” which inspired us to celebrate the feast this year, 2009. Dr. Heidler wrote, “The church today seems but a pale shadow of the one the apostles knew. The unsaved community in America is not being reached.”
Just this weekend many from our church attended Dr. T. L. Lowery’s conference.
God is calling all of His sons and daughters of the Spiritual Revolution to ARISE. AND MOVE out of their comfort zone to a NEW LEVEL OF EFFECTIVE LIFE CHANGING MINISTRY. TO GO OUT INTO THE WORLD TO CHANGE INDIVIDUAL LIVES. CITIES. NATIONS.
As God is confronting, challenging, calling and commissioning us...The LORD is saying to REST IN HIM, so He may REST UPON US, so we may be renewed and refreshed. He loves our hearts, motivation and love for Him. But He is telling us to move FROM HIS HEART. HIS PASSION. HIS LOVE. For more effective life changing ministry and service to Him.
“When they had prayed,
Presently the prayer movement, and prophetic and apostolic movements are seeking to restore the power and life of the early church. All of these are essential if the church is to be restored.
Dr. Heidler writes that there is a key element missing. We have not been taught, understood, or have ignored the most basic fact of the early church’s identity; The church restored to its Jewish roots. This is what God is calling for us to do. To seek His Presence, celebrate Jesus in God’s Appointed Times so that foundation stone will be restored.
Acts 3:21 promises that before the return of Jesus, God will bring a great movement of restoration of all things in the earth. God is restoring the Jews to their Messiah. And He also desires restoration for His Church. God wants to restore our lost inheritance. He is calling His Church to BECOME THE ‘ONE NEW MAN’ WHERE JEWS AND GENTILES FEAST ON THE RICHES, BLESSINGS, AND PROMISES OF GOD’S NEW COVENANT.
In Ephesians chapter five, God calls the church THE BRIDE OF CHRIST. He promises that in preparation for His coming, He will prepare His Bride. He will wash and purify His Bride with His Word in Spirit and in Truth!
God is preparing to raise up the church in power and glory, as the world has never seen! His KINGDOM POWER is being restored ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN, as His Spirit is being poured out.
In true prophetic apostolic ministry the Holy Spirit’s anointing flows throughout the congregation of a church. It is shared impartation and corporate anointing. “Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. It is like the precious oil upon the head running down on the beard of Aaron. Running down on the edge of his garment; it is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; For the LORD commanded the blessing ~Life forevermore.” Psalm 133:1-3
God wants us to intercede in great spiritual warfare for the strength of the demonic, Satanism and witchcraft to be broken and be brought down in cities and nations.
The prophetic apostolic churches will become the places of real power and authority. The Word of the LORD prevails. “So the word of the LORD grew mightily and prevailed.” Acts 19:20
GOD WANTS HIS WORD TO BE ALIVE IN OUR HEARTS!
“Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice
I just read Dr. Lowery’s book and he writes that God is calling for the five-fold ministry to be restored in the church. The present ministry of pastor/teacher and evangelist are gifts from God, but they are incomplete and represent only a part of the five fold ministry, thus not the full power and glory of JESUS. This is what the key restoration of the church means.
And this ties in with Dr. Heidler's book, and how restoring the church to God's Covenant Roots through all the covenants He gave to Israel in the Old Testament, joins us with His New Covenant, JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, as ONE NEW MAN.
GOD IS CALLING US TO HOLINESS~walking in God’s Presence and Power! Holiness is a key to a mighty supernatural life. And to honor all that is holy. God’s Word. His Name. Apostles. Prophets. Spiritual Leaders. Marriage. Your body. The Tithe. First Fruits. The Sabbath. Other Christians. Places of Worship. Israel. Choosing to honor all of these sets us apart. And God’s promise is that when you honor all that is holy, you will tap into HIS COVENANT BLESSINGS and He will bring you to a new level and dimension, give you new anointings, to experience HIM and walk in newness of life. His life overflowing.
God wants you to walk in covenant with Him and experience all of His blessings. So His blessings on our lives will serve as a great testimony to the world, and all men will be drawn to Him. He wants us to walk in love and kindness. The fruit of His Spirit is more important than the gifts of His Spirit. As Paul writes, if we have no love we are as tinkling cymbals and sounding brass. God’s loving kindness is everlasting. God wants us to walk in great faith, with no doubts, trusting God is committed to keeping His Covenant with His people.
God’s covenant with us joins us in covenant with one another. In observing the LORD’s supper as we did in the FEAST OF PASSOVER, the wine represents THE BLOOD OF JESUS and our New Covenant IN HIS BLOOD. The bread represents the body of Jesus, and the fact we are all knit together, in love, unity and one accord, IN HIM, by His Covenant, as ONE NEW MAN.
And it is through this Covenant that believing Gentiles are grafted and knit together into one body with the Jews, to enjoy the blessings and covenants God gave to Abraham, Moses, Noah, David, and others in the Old Testament. We are joined together in CHRIST, THROUGH HIS SACRIFICIAL BLOOD, in HIS LIFE, DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURRECTION, in the New Testament, as ONE NEW MAN.
GOD IS CALLING FORTH THE TITUS 2 MEN AND WOMEN
God is calling the older generation to mentor the younger generation and teach them how we are all bonded together in the LOVE OF CHRIST, IN THE NEW COVENANT, to walk and minister in covenant with Him, and with each other.
THANK GOD THAT HE LOVES YOU WITH AN EVERLASTING LOVE. AND THAT HE HAS CHOSEN YOU! AND GIVEN YOU SPIRITUAL GIFTS. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFTS ARE ASK HIM TO REVEAL THEM TO YOU.
THANK GOD THAT HE HAS CHOSEN YOU FOR HIMSELF. HE HAS A UNIQUE DIVINE DESTINY ESPECIALLY FOR YOU. A DIVINE PLAN AND PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE. GOD HAS COMMITTED HIMSELF TO YOU! HE IS IN COVENANT WITH YOU AND HE WANTS YOU TO COVENANT WITH HIM!
STUDY AND STAY IN HIS WORD AND ASK GOD TO REVEAL HIS COVENANT BLESSINGS AND YOUR COVENANT COMMITMENTS TO HIM. THANK HIM FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS. PRAY TO TRUST HIM MORE.
PRAY FOR GOD TO SEND THE SPIRITUAL MOTHERS AND FATHERS TO YOU, THOSE PEOPLE ‘WITH SKIN ON’ TO COME UP BESIDE YOU. HE CALLS US TO LOVE EVERYONE AND TO SERVE HIM IN UNITY AND ONE ACCORD FOR HIS GLORY AND HONOR. BUT HE WILL BRING CERTAIN COVENANT INDIVIDUALS TO PRAY, ENCOURAGE, EXHORT, UPLIFT, AND TO IMPART INTO YOU. TO HELP YOU TO DISCOVER THE SPIRITUAL GIFTS GOD HAS PLACED IN YOU. TO HELP STIR UP THESE GIFTS. AND TEACH YOU HOW TO USE THEM FOR GOD’S GLORY AND HONOR.
EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED! ENJOY TIME WITH GOD. ANTICIPATE HIS GLORY TO FALL. EXPECT HIS HOLY PRESENCE AND EXPERIENCE GOD, AS YOU SEEK HIM FIRST. HIS KINGDOM. HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. AND ALL THESE THINGS WILL BE RESTORED AND ADDED UNTO YOU.
Jesus wants to ‘tabernacle’ with you. “On the last day of the feast, Jesus said in a loud voice, ‘If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, streams of living water will flow from his innermost being.” John 7:37-38
God wants the church to be fully restored to His Covenant Promises and Blessings. We as individuals are the Church! We are the Bride of Christ. We are the kings and priests. God wants us, His Church, His Bride, to mature and develop ‘to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:13
God has given the five fold ministry to the church as gifts ‘for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.”
God is calling forth His sons and daughters to “ARISE! SHINE. FOR YOUR LIGHT HAS COME. And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold the darkness shall cover the earth. And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you. The Gentiles shall come to your light. And kings to the brightness of your rising. The sun shall no longer be your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you; But the LORD will be to you an everlasting light. And your God your glory. Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself; For the LORD will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended. Also your people shall all be righteous; They shall inherit the land forever. The branch for My planting. The work of My hands. That I may be glorified. A little one shall become a thousand. And a small one a strong nation.
God is equipping our nation to arise once again in His power and glory as we continue to go to all nations and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. To win the lost and preach Salvation. But He also wants us to preach the rest of the gospel! Redemption. Sanctification. Restoration. As we all are ‘transformed from glory to glory!”
NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER, APRIL 30
Why do our covenant roots matter? Why do America’s roots in this nation really matter? God honors and keeps His covenant promises.
It is time for Christians in this nation to ONCE AGAIN stand up and proclaim God’s Covenant promises He made in the past between Him and His people. Dutch Sheets just released a powerful message telling us to pray. Call upon God. Honoring the covenant that we made with Him as a nation. God had a purpose and divine destiny for founding this nation that our forefathers believed in and dedicated this nation to it.
God wants to covenant with you and bring you to a place where you experience the fullness of Christ and His life, overflowing! He wants to pour out His Seven-Fold Spirit upon you. As you come before Him in awe and reverence of His Holy Presence, He wants to pour out wisdom, knowledge, understanding, counsel and might.
Thank you Dr. Robert Heidler, Dr. T. L. Lowery, Dutch Sheets, and other mighty anointed prophetic and apostolic men and women for your powerful proclamations.
God is about to send a great reformation revival to our nation. There is a GREAT SHIFT IN THE ATMOSPHERE AS GOD IS POURING OUT OF HIS SPIRIT IN GREATER WAYS THAN EVER BEFORE IN THESE LATTER DAYS.
A NATION IS BLESSED WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD. WE CRY OUT TO YOU O GOD. RESTORE OUR NATION! BRING US BACK TO OUR COVENANT ROOTS! THE RICH HERITAGE IN WHICH OUR FOREFATHERS FAITHFULLY DEDICATED AND FOUNDED THIS GREAT NATION OF AMERICA!
THANK YOU FATHER GOD FOR STIRRING UP THE HEART OF THE GENTILES. THANK YOU FOR PLACING WITHIN US A HUNGER AND LONGING TO BE RECONNECTED TO OUR ROOTS! THE MESSIANIC CHURCH IS ARISING. WE ARE CRYING OUT TO YOU, REPENTING AND RETURNING TO YOU. YOU HAVE TOLD US FATHER, ‘ IF MY PEOPLE WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, REPENT AND TURN TO ME, I WILL RESTORE THEM!”
WE ARE ARISING! STANDING ON THE WORD OF GOD AND HIS COVENANT PROMISES! WE ARE ONE NEW MAN, GRAFTED AND ROOTED DEEPLY IN OUR CHRISTIAN ROOTS WITH ISRAEL, AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE, GOD’S PEOPLE.
WE ARE BLOWING THE TRUMPET! SOUNDING THE ALARM. WE ARE TAKING BACK WHAT THE ENEMY AND DEMONIC POWERS ARE TRYING TO STEAL! OUR CHRISTIAN HERITAGE! FATHER GOD, HELP RESTORE AND REFORM THIS NATION BACK TO OUR NEW COVENANT ROOTS IN YOU!
SEEK GOD FIRST! SEEK HIS HOLY PRESENCE! SPEND INTIMATE TIME WITH JESUS. REST IN THE LORD SO HE MAY REST UPON YOU.
THANK GOD THAT HE LIVES IN YOU! THAT THE SUPERNATURAL POWER OF HIS HOLY SPIRIT EMPOWERS YOU.
PRAISE GOD THAT HE HAS PLACED YOU TO MINISTER IN THE SPHERES OF YOUR INFLUENCE. HE HAS ALIGNED YOU! POSITIONED YOU! ALIGN YOURSELF WITH HIM! MAKE A NEW COVENANT AND COMMITMENT WITH HIM TO BE USED FOR HIS GLORY AND HONOR IN GREATER WAYS THAN EVER BEFORE!
YOU HAVE KINGDOM DOMINION POWER AND AUTHORITY TO TAKE BACK THE MOUNTAINS OF MEDIA. GOVERNMENT. EDUCATION. ECONOMY. RELIGION. ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT.
TO CHANGE A COMMUNITY. TO TAKE A CITY. TO TAKE A NATION.
THANK HIM FOR HIS COVENANT TO PROVIDE ALL YOU NEED TO RESTORE ALL THINGS. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU KNOW THAT AS GOD’S BLOOD BOUGHT PEOPLE, IT HAS BEEN HIS WILL FOR YOU TO BE BLESSED AND AT THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAINS.
“The Lord will make you the head and not the tail;
THANK GOD FOR LOVING YOU AND CHOOSING YOU.
“Blessed shall you be in the city,
The LORD will cause your enemies who rise against you
The LORD will establish you as a holy people to Himself,
And the LORD will grant you plenty of goods,
Joshua spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel saying: “The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land. If the LORD delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’ Only do not rebel against the LORD, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread, their protection has departed from them, and the LORD is with us. Do not fear them.” Numbers 14:6-9
As Christians we need to ARISE. TAKE A STAND. And say, “How dare America’s government and leaders challenge the WORD OF GOD OUR NATION WAS FOUNDED UPON! How dare they say that we are not nor have ever been a Christian Nation! As Christians we believe in a God that can take a nation in a day. We believe in a God who supernaturally performs miracles every day! We believe what Jesus said, that with the resurrection power of God’s Holy Spirit, that raised Him from the dead that we may do even ‘greater works’ than He! We believe in a great, loving, almighty, powerful God, Creator of the Universe! Who was and is and is to come!
We must silence these voices! And let the NEW SOUND OF THE LORD BE HEARD THROUGHOUT THE EARTH! And we may start right where we are! Right where God has placed us!
ASPIRE MINISTRIES PRAYER FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!
“The eyes of your understanding being enlightened;
God is shaking everything that can be shaken.
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Jesus reigns on high. And through God’s Covenant promises, we have Kingdom power and dominion over everything on this earth to take back what the enemy has tried to steal from us!
We are a new generation arising to fulfill the mandate and mission, the Great Commission. He is calling you. He has prepared you for such a time as this.
HE is commissioning you to go forth as His mighty apostolic prophetic army to do greater works than He bringing healing and deliverance to cities and nations.
“The Spirit of the LORD GOD is upon Me,
And they shall rebuild the old ruins,
I will direct their work in truth,
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD,
