Breaking Through Into A New Thing

 By John Belt

I. THE NUMBER THREE

  Three is a very significant number in scripture.  3 times is fullness.  3 times represents completion.   The Godhead - Father, Son and Spirit is the fullness of God.  We are composed of spirit, soul and body.  There is completeness as all of these function together in unison in worship to God.   It was 3 days when Jesus came forth from the grave.  The 3rd day represents resurrection, a divine release of the Spirit and power, for it was the Spirit that raised Jesus after 3 days.  Jesus was tempted 3 times by the devil and then he was released into His power ministry in the earth. Because Jesus walked out a life of faithfulness to His Father He was launched into the new place of power ministry. As we have been faithful to the Lord He is taking us and causing us to break through into a new season.   God has new things in store.   His timing is perfect.  He is ready to release a fresh wind and glory of His Spirit.

 1 Samuel 2:35

And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before mine anointed for ever.

 II. NEW SHOES TO RUN

 Hebrews 12:1-2

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith

 God is giving us new shoes to run for His purposes.  There is work to be done for the Kingdom of God.  For the next round of obedience new shoes are being given.  There is something about a nice new pair of tennis shoes.  I love the fresh smell of them.  There is a nice bounce from a pair that has not been worn.  God is ready to put a bounce in our step as we obey Him forerunning for His purposes without compromise.  As we do His glory to be released, His Kingdom will be expanded and His Church will be built.

 III. WARRIORS & DEFENDERS

 God takes us on a journey to come to a place of purity, revelation and glory. He is now releasing those who have been prepared as  warriors and defenders of the faith.   We are to continually be taking ground for the Kingdom of God as we position ourselves in the place that He has called us to.   It is a time to be sober, diligent, given to excellence, walk in godly character shunning manipulations and corrupt motives of the heart, to be filled with grace walking in the light of His love and goodness.

 PURITY

 The pure in heart shall see God. Those who love the pure word of God, His promises and His Presence will be those He can trust with the riches of His glory and power.

 Psalms 24:3-6

Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?   He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.  He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.  This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

  REVELATION

As our hearts are washed in His pure waters the revelation of His goodness, blessing and grace will rest upon us as we continually experience His person, opening our eyes to see from His heavenly perspective.

 Revelation 1:10-11

I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last:

 GLORY

 The glory of the Lord will fill the earth as the waters cover the sea.  We are the vessels of His glory.  As His glory, the manifested Presence of God, fills us we act as conduits of the substance of heaven wherever we go.

 2 Peter 1:17-18

For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.

 With the weapons of worship, wielding the Word of His authority we will war in the spirit to accomplish the purposes of God. He gives us all the backing we need as we place Him first in our heart without common ground with the enemy.  It is in this place that we will obtain the victory in our hearts then into the earth where He will draw men to Himself.  It is all for His plan, kingdom and glory - that Jesus Christ would be magnified in the eyes of all.
