We live in unprecedented days. Truly we can say it's God's time for San Antonio!
Ministries and churches are finding each other and working together in new collaborative ways. There is joy when unity is not tainted with self-importance but operates only to bring glory to the Lord!
The Greek word "Kairos" describes a specific time, a God given opportunity. Such spiritual happenings have marked history. When God raised up Cyrus, Moses, Esther, and others we could name, they were instrumental in navigating cities and nations through a spiritual shift. Their coming to the position of God's appointing heralded change! The manner of life that seemed so secure and unchangeable was suddenly invaded. Change came as fast as God's people were obedient to the Spirit of the Lord. The old order began to crumble, and for a time it could seem like chaos. The purpose of God's appointed Kairos is to align earth with heaven; to align San Antonio with heaven's purpose and blueprint for our city. But, there is a path that must be walked before we see God's designed purpose fulfilled.
God raises up leaders who desire only His glory.
We all need to hear the word of the Lord.
Only when we obey the word is the Kairos opportunity seized.
When the Lord speaks, the word is confirmed by many prophetic voices. And so it is here in San Antonio - God is Reviving his church, Prayer is being answered, Souls are being saved, Churches are growing.
Over the coming months the Lord has orchestrated the bringing of a number of remarkable prophetic voices into the city. God has something to say to San Antonio. May we have ears to hear. When Haggai the prophet spoke he awakened the backslidden people to their task of building the temple. Perhaps that is what we will hear. Get up and build the work of God! When Daniel spoke he gave revelation of the heavenly warfare and our privileged position in the courts of heaven so equipping us for victory. We all need to come to a new level of authority in prayer to combat the evils of our day.
Come to these prophetic meetings expecting to hear specific words for our lives, ministries and city. Come to the meetings ready to hear and to obey.
We who pray, long to see God's glory come down upon our city so that countless thousands find salvation and begin to understand what it means to be in the Kingdom of God. Moses asked God if he could see His glory, and the Lord said he would cause all his goodness to pass before him. The passage in Exodus 33 and 34 tells in detail the Lord's instruction for seeing all His goodness. Moses was to stand upon the rock close by the Lord and the Lord would cover him with His hand. In other words Moses was to be so close to the Lord that he was wrapped in his presence!
The Lord proclaimed His name! And all His goodness passed by! His name is who He is - God is Good! All Moses could do was to fall upon his knees and worship the Lord! His goodness was described like the fruit of the Spirit as recorded in Galatians 5:22. Come San Antonio; Let us stand next to the Lord on the Rock wrapped in His presence as we abide in the vine and produce the glorious fruit of all God's goodness. Perhaps this is the key to evangelizing the vast numbers who do not know the Lord. When they see His goodness in "every day Christians" may they stand in awe, be amazed and worship the Lord.
“Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16).
Please remember it takes more than praying and more than hearing God's voice to see a move of God. Without obedience nothing will happen. Kairos times are opportunities and opportunity does not wait for anyone. Look again at Moses - the cry of God's people had come to the ears of God and Moses, a wandering shepherd, was commissioned to deliver Israel from Egypt. At the burning bush he heard God’s call, felt inadequate but obeyed. He became a partner with God to miraculously birth a nation. Moses never looked after sheep again, his life radically changed.
Esther a young woman taken into a harem to satisfy the king heard of the evil plans against her people and though she could lose her life if she intervened, she obeyed. If I perish, I perish! Her obedience opened the way for the anointing of God to fall upon her, so that a young Jewish woman, now queen of the most powerful heathen nation, was able to cooperate with God for deliverance of the Jews.
Obedience! That story could be repeated again and again. At a Kairos time, change only takes place when the shift in the Spirit realm is embraced and the people of God volunteer in the day of his power. Are you ready to work with God for His new thing in San Antonio?
Ps 110:2-3 “The Lord will stretch forth Your strong scepter from Zion, saying, "Rule in the midst of Your enemies." Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power.” (NASU)
San Antonio our day of opportunity is here, Embrace the day and be part of a mighty move of God in our City!
