On Birthing Visions
Just as a man and woman consummate their love in an act that results in the passing of a seed to an egg, so the result of the consummation of love between God and His beloved bride grows to maturity and ultimately the birthing of the will of God or His visions. God holds the seed of all our hopes and dreams in Him and will implant them in our souls as we commune with Him, such that His desires hopes and dreams would become ours. This is the deposit of God’s love to us that He would actually entrust us with a precious seed of hope for the future with which we are to then nourish and gestate until its birth.
We nurture this seed of hope, the substance of things not seen, with our words of faith. The spoken words are the way that this seed grows to maturity and is ready, then, to come from spiritual to natural reality. On the contrary, we also have the choice to miscarry or even abort these seeds of vision with words of fear and doubt. Just as a child can be unwanted before his/her birth, resulting in a deliberate or unpremeditated abortion, so can the will of God and all that He chooses for us. We have an awesome responsibility of carrying this seed and co-laboring with the Spirit of God in order to birth the reality of His Kingdom.
Paul said, “The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (Romans 10:8). This is a reality that we MUST learn if we are to fully cooperate with and live in the kingdom while we yet walk in earthen vessels. To think that we have the privilege as little “gods” (Psalms 82:6) to speak by the very Word who resides within us, the reality of His will is an awesome thought. It’s a truth that the New Age religion has stolen, twisted and perverted until most Christians would now consider this to be nothing more than heresy; but it is the Word of God, made alive within us by the power of the Holy Spirit, and without this truth, we cannot establish the Kingdom as Christ did on earth. No wonder all thoughts must be taken captive to the obedience of Christ! Life and death truly are in the power of the tongue, yet we must love this truth to partake of it. We were made in the image of God to be the mouthpieces of His spoken word, through which God continues to birth and establish His will.
“Let the high praises of God…forever be in our mouth and a two edged sword in our hand”….for the cutting down and clearing away of the kingdom of darkness and the raising up of the Kingdom of Light!! God’s Kingdom come, His will be done.
