The Manifested Presence Of God
The Church is going to experience the manifested Presence of God. God promised us that…
“A powerful spiritual force is about to be released within the Body of Christ that will bring about the greatest manifestation of the power of God the world has ever seen.”
What is this powerful spiritual force God is releasing? It is a new life flow that is going to be manifested in us, the life we have allowed to lie dormant for such a long time, not realizing that the very presence of the living God dwells in us!
God told Moses, “My Presence will go with you!” What a tremendous promise! My presence, the great I AM, the Creator of Heaven and earth, My presence…I am going with you!” With a promise like that
…We can face every army.
…We can face every enemy.
…We can face every onslaught . . .
…because God is going with us! His presence is our ultimate weapon.
The enemy can stand up against advertising, organization, and denomination — but the enemy cannot stand against the presence of God. God’s presence is real. It is not an imitation. The enemy can imitate everything, but he cannot imitate the presence of God. It is impossible! God’s presence was so evident in Abraham’s life that even ungodly people like the heathen King Abimelech recognized it. In Genesis 21:22 he declared, “God is with thee in all that thou doest.” This heathen king didn’t know the God of Israel. He only knew there was something different about Abraham. God’s presence rested upon Abraham and it set him apart.
Prior to entering Canaan, God promised Joshua that no enemy would be able to stand against him. He gave Joshua an ultimate weapon that could not be defeated. God told Joshua:
“There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.” (Joshua 1:5-6)
What was Joshua’s ultimate weapon? It was the presence of God! The Lord told Joshua, “No power of the enemy can stand against you when my presence is upon you! No enemy can harm you.” The enemy cannot penetrate the ultimate weapon of God’s presence.
Make this declaration:
By faith, I am taking my eyes off of my circumstance and refocusing my attention on the manifested presence of God. Exodus 33:12-23
