“Seize the Moment of Bold and Daring Faith!”
Bob Blase, Portland, OR
A Vision in the Heavens
One day, during one of my devotional times (before the COVID-19), I saw in the spirit an operation of God descending toward Earth like a city coming out of the heavens. I watched this vast city as it slowly approached. It was a fully-functioning city, and I could tell there was much activity within it. I noted a powerful sense of purpose for which this “operating” city was being sent to us.
With God All Things Are Possible
It was sometime later that the understanding of the vision began to open up. The city I saw, I believe, represents a special operation of faith being released by God, to the Church, across the entire Earth. This ‘city,’ this dimension, represents a level of Kingdom rule coming to the Church, the Body of Christ. This city is a dimension and a layer of His Kingdom rule being released in the earth in a magnitude and an expanse never seen before.
It is authority and power being granted that rules over the realm of faith; and it is specifically tuned to and characterized by the words of the Lord Jesus in Mark 10:27: “But Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.'” (Photo via Needpix)
Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, demonstrated this dimension of faith and rule to us during His earthly ministry. Now it is our turn.
The Seeds of Bold Faith
We have come through great testing, and a plowing up of the soil of our hearts, if you will. Our focus on the priority of the purposes of the Kingdom has been adjusted and is now sharp and crisp in this hour. We are ready to receive the new seeds from Heaven – the seeds of bold faith. This is a part of what we have been praying for. Seize the moment!
The ‘NOW’ of the Kingdom
I believe that the time is ‘now,’ that this operation, this bestowing of great faith, has been released, activated, and is accessible. It’s a timing thing. It is one of the ‘nows’ of the Kingdom. Let us be encouraged to continue to hunger for, pray for, and believe for the “greater things.”
“Truly, truly, I say to you, the one believing in Me, the works that I do, also he will do. And he will do greater than these, because I am going to the Father.” (John 14:12)
Now it is being released in this time, according to the will of God, and we are being given access by grace through faith. All things in the Kingdom are received by faith. It will be accessed by a great many people, and with too many acts of the power of Jesus to keep track of.
We have entered into a time of bold and daring faith. Just as Caleb said to Moses and the children of Israel, so we declare, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it” (see Numbers 13:30). And even as Hannah, Samuel’s mother, prayed, so we pray, “My mouth speaks boldly against my enemies, because I rejoice in Your salvation” (see 1 Samuel 2:1). We always remember, of course, it is God doing the work: “‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts” (see Zechariah 4:6).
2 Chronicles 7:14 continues to work before our very eyes: “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (Photo via Pixabay)
Let’s keep up our end: call on His name, humble ourselves, pray, seek Him, and turn from our wicked ways. We are seeing the Lord keep up His end: hearing us, forgiving us, and healing our land. The goal is for God’s righteousness and justice to once again preside over our land, and to bring healing to it, to the glory of His name. This includes the coming of signs, wonders, miracles, and great creativity to be demonstrated by the Spirit of God. This is tied to people’s callings and their spheres of influence.
Heaven has literally released grace and power to back us up to believe for anything according to the will of God, and it will be granted. The forerunners of this operation have already been at work among us, demonstrating the marvelous works of the Lord. The heralds have been signaling the coming of this operation, this greater dimension of the Lord’s hand at work. Massive numbers of angels have been assigned and released in squads, companies, and armies for this very assignment.
The Spirit said to me in closing, “This gift is being given, and in this magnitude, because My people continue to humble themselves and pray. I hear your voices and your requests, and I am answering you.”
