God Works Through our Passion

 

In these last days the Holy Spirit and the working of the Kingdom of God is gathering all things in Christ. He is bringing all things which are in Heaven and earth in submission to the working of the Holy Spirit and the operation of His power. (Eph. 1:10) The Apostle Paul’s main ministry focus was to proclaim the purpose that was established before the world began, this is what gives glory to God.

 

1 Corinthians 2:7-9

7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

 

This verse sounds like another scripture doesn’t it? Romans 8:29 He predestinated us to be conformed to the image of His dear Son. Predestined means He preordained before He created the world. His image in us and through us was the plan and it was a mystery to the princes of this world, we know this because they would have not allowed Jesus to make that sacrifice that gave it to us if they knew.

Before the world began, He chose us in Him. Let’s look at what Verse 8 says:

 

Verse 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

 

The devil hates God. He says, “If I had known this plan was going to multiply God in the Earth, then I never would have crucified the Lord of Glory.” God is unveiling His best to those that are born of His glory. When we embrace the Holy Spirit and His working He is able to show even more.

 

verse 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

 

This shows an attitude of heart that we must have in order to become more acquainted with Him and to become more intimate with Him. Remember 1 John 3:6, they sinned because they are not seeing Him and they are not knowing Him. Well, I will tell you what K-N-O-W is talking about. It’s talking about awakening, which is a product of intimacy. It’s not about head knowledge, it is intimacy with everything He is. God has so much He wants to unveil to those who love Him. God works through our passion. Jesus said, they do the things they do because they love darkness more than they loved Light. Where is our passion? Attitude does determine your altitude with God. God is saying to us, “I have so much I want to unveil to you but your heart (which I use to show you things) must be fixed on Me, I work through your passion.” God unveils all things by His Spirit. He will lead us in all truth and show us the deep things of God. But for us to experience that we need to have a deep love attitude. Everything God is will always be the utmost precious, and we need to show that we believe that.

We’ll continue tomorrow.

Be blessed in serving the purpose. 😊
