While lingering in the secret place, asking what truth to share with the body, Acts 20:11 became shiny with gold dust. The passage tells of a young man that had fallen asleep and fell from the third story window as Paul spoke well into the night. They found him dead when they picked him up! Beginning with verse 10 in The Message, Paul went down, stretched himself on him, and hugged him hard. "No more crying," he said. "There's life in him yet." Then Paul got up and served the Master's Supper. And went on telling stories of the faith until dawn! On that note, they left-Paul going one way, the congregation another, leading the boy off alive, and full of life themselves. I believe God is speaking loud and clear through (Acts 20:11) that 2011 is the right time now for us to exercise our growing in the Spirit. To step into the Holy Spirit, to put Him on like a new suit, so we can consistently announce, embody and demonstrate the Kingdom of God. 2011 will be the Turn-Around year we all have been praying for, along with the cloud of witnesses, if we will use the keys He has given us. As we read in Acts 20:11, communion is one of the keys. Staying washed in the word is another. Thanksgiving, praise & worship, giving & caring for others, all are keys we must use. I believe we can walk into the next dimension of the supernatural where miracles are the normal, the dead raised common, we become signs and walk in wonders. Three truths are coming to light in this hour, BELIEVE, FEED and UNDERSTAND. First, BELIEVE in the miracles of Jesus, John 10:37-38. Second, FEED on Jesus the bread of life-communion and reading the word, John 6:5-13 verse35 & 48-51. Third, UNDERSTAND the glory of God is revealed to those who believe, John 11:40. 2011, let's make this the year of TURN-AROUND!!!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
