Concerning those that are on The Rise, and the people that want them to fall-
There are seasons in The Body of Christ, where voices, words, churches, leaders, writers and other ministries go on a radical rise. Their visibility changes, their influence shifts, their credibility heightens and they become a serious force to be reckoned with. This rise, when caused by God especially, is a very public phenomena. Supporters see it, critics see it, cynics see it and other bystanders.
As history and trend would have it, most watching the rise, are eager to experience the fullness of the assignment on the thing that God has catapulted to the next dimension, but everyone does not feel the same way. The most interesting audience and spectators of those on the rise are often those that have yet to find a healthy way to cope with their own lack of ascent. These men, women, conversations, etc have become content with their own failures and they find relief from the nagging pain of their inability by hoping, wishing, wanting and even believing God for the moment, that they get to gloat because the thing on the rise, is about to fall.
Their misery is now medicated by the anticipation of the decline of something on the rise. If any of you are on the rise, trust me, people somewhere, are looking for, planning for and projecting your fall. These prognostications never come from the successful. They always come from the stranded. If you are on the rise, hear my word….You DON’T have to fall!!
Their is a way to rise and never stop rising. Those that calculate your fall, can become a distraction to your clarity and your trajectory. Starve them, by succeeding in the plan of God for your life. FALLING is a choice, a decision and an action of the will. It is not an event that happens all of a sudden. God is committed to keeping the thing HE put on the rise, from falling!!!!!
Jude 1:24-25 – 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
God is committed to keeping you from falling and PRESENTING YOU FAULTLESS.…..
So to everyone that expects my fall………Don’t hold your breath. Your expectation will be hazardous to you…I’ve been called to rise.
If you REFUSE to be seduced and ensnared by satan or his subcontractors…….REPLY…I REFUSE TO FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
