"that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless." - Ephesians 5:27
The worst "drug" many Christians are taking today is the drug of the wrong narrative. This wrong narrative says we are in the worst of days and that Jesus is coming any moment to rescue us out of the mess of these days.
These are actually the days of the greatest Kingdom advancements ever and Jesus is going to come THROUGH us in a mighty way before He comes FOR us. When you understand Scriptures' timetable for when Christ returns, you realize that He is not coming to rescue a people or a bride but only to celebrate with a victorious people and a "without spot or wrinkle" glorious Bride (Ephesians 5:27).
EMBRACING THE MINDSET OF RESTORATION
Acts 3:20-21 - "and that He may send [to you] Jesus, the Christ, who has been appointed for you, 21 whom heaven must keep until the time for the [complete] restoration of all things about which God promised through the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time." (AMP)
Acts 3:21 confirms to us that He is "held in the heavens" UNTIL an era of restoration has been fulfilled - that we are only just now beginning. The enemy has sold us a drug of a false narrative of the day. This "drug" disempowers more Believers than any other drug, and if you are going to be refired you have to abandon that storyline.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT GOD?
What you think about God is the most important thing about you, and you need to start getting some better thoughts about God and His capabilities. The Kingdom age has just begun and there is unprecedented Kingdom territory for the taking - and He wants His Bride fully engaged in the assignment/adventure.
LIVING PRESENTLY FOR THE NEXT GENERATION
Yes, there is also a major call upon the next generation to run with amazing things from God, but God is speaking right now of the amazing things He has for those who have thought the sun is setting on their lives and efforts. Yes, you want to hand off the baton to the next generation, but you don't do that until you finish running your race. Your race is done when you are dead and not before. Great gains are in order for those who will stay doing Kingdom business.
