"By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household.... - Hebrews 11:7
Through a divine visitation, God specifically prepared Noah for unprecedented events that unfolded in his generation. No human reasoning or natural wisdom could have provided the necessary insight and strategic blueprint for survival. Noah prevailed only by the Spirit of Revelation and obedience to the spoken word of the Lord.
Only in the supernatural realm can we receive the provision for our generation. This spiritual reality requires a far greater faith than we presently possess on a corporate level. Therefore, we must SET OUR FAITH in order to access God's end-time promises to the Church. Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life and He desires to display His resurrection power and life through us, so we may display God's glory.
LONG FORSEEN PROMISES
Many aspects of His divine life have not yet been discovered. The God-empowered life is wholly supernatural. It is profoundly prophetic and embodies unfathomable depths of wisdom and knowledge.
Strictly by the demonstration of the Holy Spirit and His power will the harvest foretold and described in the Scriptures be realized! As we stand on the threshold of the new millennium and the dawning of a new day for the Church, we would be well served to comprehend more clearly God's PURPOSE FOR OUR LIFE.
"God also bearing witness with them, both by signs and wonders, and by manifold powers, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will" (Hebrews 2:4).
In reality, this passage is forthright and underscores the cooperation between Heaven and earth in presenting the Gospel. Such pointed language as this requires no interpretation, only our faith to believe it. To attempt to explain away this supernatural dimension of our heritage would provide a refuge for cold formal religion and a hiding place for unbelief.
GOD OF THE IMPOSSIBLE
"But Jesus looked at them and said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible." - Mark 10:27
Through Him, we can boldly proclaim that all things are possible. Our only occasion for victory is to be clothed with Christ and make no provision for the flesh or for human arguments that would deny the power of Heaven.
Many of us have endured much anguish and hardship during our sanctification process that prepares us to share in the harvest and walk in union with God. Great value exists in understanding the purpose for seasons of oppression and privation – they assist in the lofty endeavor of discovering God's rest and experiencing supernatural faith in God's Son. The refining process (Isaiah 30:20-22) has as its goal the perfecting of our faith and preparation for divine encounters with our Teacher.
Around the earth today, the Holy Spirit is releasing fresh dimensions of enlightenment regarding His Word, His desires, and His strategies -- anointing believers to operate more fully in the power and revelatory realms of Heaven.
Throughout history, when God's people walked before Him in truthfulness and faithfulness, He made known His presence through visible signs, visions, and displays of His might. A reverential fear of the Lord arises from such demonstrations of God's virtue. That is the quest for this generation.
Presently an occasion exists for our spiritual eyes and ears to be illumined, thereby birthing truthful and faithful hearts. As A. W. Tozer once expressed it:
"My thoughts aren't adequate, Lord, to enable me to lead Your people through the quagmire of today's society. Nor are the thoughts of the writers, the teachers, the preachers, and the psychologists that bombard me from the pages and the airways. I'm only going to be effective as a spiritual leader as I learn to think God's thoughts."
Scripture instructs us that where there is no vision, people perish. Discouragement and unbelief – resulting from deferred hope and seemingly unfulfilled promises – will be overcome as the Church apprehends the revelatory realm of Heaven and secures the thoughts and ways of God. That is our Biblical promise and spiritual mandate for our generation.
