The Kingdom of God has Come

The Vision of the Spirit and Power of Elijah in the Last Days | by John Glueck.

Most people are overwhelmed by current events and cultural deterioration and really just think to themselves “what can I do about this anyway.” Perhaps you are a sincere believer in Yeshua the Messiah and seek to live a life worthy of him, but like most people, you make very little impact outside your own kehila or church.

We realize that we live in a fallen world. Where we miss the mark is that we lack vision for the kingdom of God and our role in it. God has a kingdom that has come to us through the authority of his Son, Yeshua. Satan has a kingdom stolen from Adam and his descendants by seduction into disobedience to God, granting him partial sovereignty over us. As the new creation in Messiah, we must enforce his victory, manifesting his authority on earth as it is in heaven by two things. These two things are the authority of his life-giving word and the powers of the age to come. [Hebrews 6:5]

You must give yourself to the reading of the written word and learn to seek the friendship of Yeshua, the living word, listening to his voice. The essence of prayer isn’t asking for things, it’s offering thanks, praise and listening to Him! Seek Yeshua! When you apply what you hear, speaking and acting on it, you enforce his word, his authority, prayer is answered and faith increases. More than this, when you become sensitive to the Holy Spirit, learn to operate in his gift(s), you can then extend his kingdom by building up your fellow believer and reaching the lost. Are you applying the word of the Lord and operating in his gifts? Do you take the time to engage unsaved people? [John10:27, Mt. 6:31-34, Rom. 10:5-8, 2 Cor. 4:13, 1 Cor. 14:26, Jo 4.]

When the angel of the Lord appeared to Zechariah in the Temple announcing the birth of John the Immerser, he said to him [among other things] that he would “go before him [that is Yeshua/Jesus] in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” [Luke 1:17]

The spirit and power of Elijah in todays ministry represents the nature of Elijah and his message of restoration to family against a self-glorifying, self-promoting, money and pleasure culture that has the appearance of godliness but denies its power. [2 Tim.3:1-5] The power of Elijah turned the heart of sinful men then, believers and unbelievers. [I Kings 18:37-39] God sent us with the same power to share Yeshua with the poor, heal the broken, and expel demons! Let’s obey his words! [IS. 61:1-3, Mark 16:17, Luke 10:1, 16-19]
