Say these words, “This message is for me”
Principles and examples written in the Old Testament are for our admonition (1 Corinthians 10:5-6,11 NKJV). All scripture is God-breathed and profitable for instruction, reproof, correction and training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16 AMPC).
In our generation there is an invitation and a call coming from God. God is looking for the ten righteous which requires righteous living choices from us.
Say, “I am a new generation person. I have Caleb in my heart and Joshua in my blood. I will not keep on wondering / wandering. I will not die in the wilderness. I will go into my promised land. I choose to believe God”.
The spirit of Caleb
There were those who did not go into the promised land. Caleb had a different spirit.
Caleb believed God and what was in his heart came out of his mouth. Even though people around him said other things, Words of faith came from Caleb’s heart. He believed God wholly and followed God wholly (Joshua 14:6-15 (NKJV)
Daniel also lived that way. He set his heart to understand, he humbled himself and his words were heard; and the angel came because of his words. (Daniel 10:12 NKJV)
The Law of Recognition is the Foundation of Revelation – to change our reality.
God knows the words in our hearts and what is coming out of our mouths. The angels are coming for the words that we are speaking every single day. In God’s pattern, in the light of this Ecclesia, we know what God is saying to us. Check your own heart and choose now if you are going to wholly believe God.
God promises us that 3 Every place upon which the sole of your foot shall tread, I’ve given to you, as I promised (Joshua 1:3 AMPC).
How do we tread upon those places?
You believe with the heart, and you speak with your mouth.
Are you treading or are you wavering? Are you frustrated? Are you speaking unbelief? Do you have the same spirit as Caleb? Are you speaking wholeheartedly what God is saying?
Caleb was living in the reality of what God was saying about his life.
Say (like Caleb), “Lord, after all these years, I’m ready to occupy. My strength is like iron. Just as my strength was then, so is my strength now to occupy the time and the place that God is giving us. I will take up this fight of faith. I will believe God’s Word to me and His promises to me concerning all the areas of my life”.
It’s time to attack with our faith, with our joy and to come up in authority. To have a Spirit of Caleb is a completely different attitude. They were confronted with the giants. 33…we were like grasshoppers in our own sight… (Numbers 13:30-33 NKJV). Caleb did not back down. Caleb was not influenced by time or people. We are in attacking mode, despite the giants we are facing. Check your inner conversations. Repentance is inevitable as we come out of Babylon to fully follow God.
Say, “Give me this mountain of which the Lord spoke in that day. It may be that the Lord will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the Lord said.
Caleb means – all Heart; enlarged.
Say, I have the heart of Caleb; I have the heart of Pastor John, that spirit upon me to keep on going and becoming what God wants me to do. I call those things which are not as though they are (Romans 4:17). I keep on asking, I keep on seeking.
(If you do not ask; you do not get. If you do not call; nothing is coming.)
Caleb also means – attack, forcible.
Caleb had a conquering spirit. He had a spirit that was ready to attack and to war and to take what God had for him. We’ve got to position ourselves and attack with the Word of God (Isaiah 60). The self-fulfilling power of the Word; we speak it into our circumstances, we call it, we declare it and then have it.
This attitude to want to occupy was in Caleb’s daughter too (Joshua 15:13-19 AMPC).
What are your children hearing you say? Are you going Big and Bold with Pastor John and with Jesus?
Different means – not the same as the other one; unlike; incompatible.
In our generation, where God wants to bring us to maturity in this Ecclesia Rising, people can be incompatible. We pick up our cross and we follow Jesus. We develop our inner nature and say, “I will do what Jesus did. I will not do it in self-will. I will not do what the people around me are doing.
Only you can check your own heart to say, “Lord, am I really following you? Am I allowing any kind of pressure or frustration in my life to come and to cause me to have words different from what You are saying?”
The words Jesus is giving to Pastor John and Pastor Sharon is His Words. The people who did not go into the Promised Land did not come against Moses, they came against God. If you reject God’s delegated authority, you’re coming against Him. The people were murmuring, unbelieving, hard-hearted. They did not integrate themselves into the collective greatness and the ways of God. They were rebellious, disobedient and unwilling. For indeed, the gospel was preached to them. But the word which they heard did not profit them because they did not mix that with faith (Hebrews 4:2 NKJV). The real danger is when the messengers are coming to this Ecclesia that we just sit there, and we really don’t align ourselves with God and don’t mix it with faith. The greatest honour we can give God is to believe Him!
Numbers 13:30-33; Numbers 14:4-10, 22-24,29-32,36-38 (AMPC, NKJV)
Caleb had a different spirit, a different attitude, believing God to the extent that God testified about him. Receive these words for yourself, to develop this spirit. Let these words resound in your spirit.
God is saying to us today, “I’m giving you the land. Come Big and Bold with your faith because I’m giving it to you.”
There are many giants. While other people might justify and say we cannot do it, we say, “We can”. Let us say, with Pastor John, in our collective greatness, “Let us go up at once and possess it because we are well able to conquer it”.
Say, “God delights in me because Jesus is in me. The giants are bread to me, I am consuming them so easily, and it will make them part of my testimony. I displace fear with faith. I keep my eyes open, our enemies have already been scattered, and their hearts are melting. I have Irrational Honour and absolutely believe God. I trust Him in the patterns that He has for us.’
The reality of the other side of the coin is, if you don’t believe God, or if you are frustrated, grumble and waver a little – dead bodies will fall in the wilderness. We affect, and we impact people around us, for the good (full of faith) – or full of doubt. Your unbelief will affect your family.
We are to choose to live as a people with a spirit of Caleb and Joshua in our homes and to say what Jesus is saying. When you live in covenant, and you know that God is planting you, you trust God in what He is doing, and you align your whole life. You love to come and hear the Word of God and what God is saying to Pastor John and Sharon. God wants to check our hearts in this Ecclesia already here to become and to arise and to take our place. We are to speak faith to one another in our Collective Greatness.
Say, We have the heart of Caleb and we have Joshua in our blood. We are a New Generation people ready to go up and to possess the land. Father, we give You glory personally, and in our Collective Greatness, because we are well able. We are bursting forth in the fruitfulness of our faithfulness. The Blessing is working in us and on us every moment of the day. We live in a New Era marked by many triumphant victories; miracle after miracle. As we give our hearts to study online Bible School this year things which we struggled with in the past, are now just falling off us. Thank you, Lord, for giving us supernatural intervention. We believe what the prophets are saying. We have the spirit like Caleb to say, Lord, at once, we are able.
