We are on earth as extensions of God to finish the work He began. We are the essence of God, His on-going incarnation in the world.
Christ was one person, limited to ministry in only one place at a time. In order to minister as an omnipresent Spirit, Jesus relinquished His fleshly dimension with its limitations of time and place. He entered a higher realm of restoration and love by becoming an indwelling Spirit.
Christ in us must take dominion over the earth…. The next move of God cannot occur until Christ in us takes dominion.
What are we waiting for? Why is Jesus waiting in heaven at the right hand of the Father? Who is He waiting for? He is waiting for you and me to become mature, for the Bride of Christ to become mature, so that He can come again. Did you know that God has done everything He can do? If anything else is going to be done, we’re going to do it.
Jesus Christ has now done all He can do, and He waits at the right hand of the His Father, until you and I as sons of God become manifest and make this world His footstool. He is waiting for us to say, “Jesus, we have made the kingdoms of this world the Kingdom of our God, and are ruling and reigning in your world.”
The Church has been foreordained of God to become that people who will become so glorified that we can bring Christ back to the earth. This glorified church must make the earth God’s footstool before Jesus can come again.
Holy men of old were moved upon by the Holy Spirit and the revelation given to them is God’s Word in the Holy Scriptures. Is God speaking any less today through holy men called of God to bring a message through revelation to this generation? … We wave our Bibles and cry, ‘This is the Word of’ God.’ Indeed it is God’s Word, but the Holy Spirit yet brings revelation to this generation today that is no less God’s Word… The prophet is not a method that God uses; but in fact is the only method he uses to speak to this generation.
Jesus Christ, as the first-fruit of the Kingdom, began the work of conquering death on an individual basis, but we, as His church, will be the ones to complete the task. Jesus said (Matthew 28:18), “all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth,” and the church today has that same power. Death will not be conquered by Jesus returning to earth. It will be conquered when the church stands up boldly and says, “We have dominion over the earth.”
