The Un-Walled Church

 

The earth is shaking and quaking. The times and events are culminating; the return of Jesus Christ is close. We don’t know when, but we know it’s close. The signs can be seen by those who have eyes to see. The groaning can be heard by those who have ears to hear.

And a holy mandate is being released to  all believers. For such a time as this we are called into this mandate. Know that who He calls, He also equips. No matter who you are, you are qualified to carry this mandate.

This is it:  The body of Christ’s last days mission is to tear down the walls of the church. The days of edifying one another inside the four walls of a church building is over. No more patty-cake Christianity with ‘I love Jesus, yes I do! I love Jesus, how about you!‘ pep rally church services.

Please do not misinterpret here. We should never forego the assembling together with other believers. Church is vital! It’s iron sharpening iron. It’s coming together to learn your strategic assignment against the enemy by knowing who you are in Christ. It’s a place of refuge and healing when we are wounded on the battlefield. Yes, church is crucial for believers.

However, now is the time for the body of Christ to edify the name of Jesus Christ outside of the church building also. Taking Jesus to the streets, the grocery stores, schools, the market place, restaurants, malls. We, as the body of Christ, are called to herald the gospel of Jesus everywhere we go!

God has given each of us a sphere of influence who need us – they NEED us – to step out of our comfort zones and share the hope of glory and love of Jesus with them. It’s time for us to no longer tolerate people in sin, but to love them out of sin!

To equip us to carryout this mandate, God is releasing a Holy Ghost invasion to the un-walled church. As love abounds for the unbeliever, gifts of the Holy Spirit will abound. The body of Christ will begin to operate in words of knowledge, gifts of prophecy and healing, mercy and giving.

As we lift up the name of Jesus, He will draw all men unto Him. Signs, wonders, and miracles will follow him who believes. There will be no doubt that He alone is God and many will come to know Him and be saved.

Will you rise to His holy mandate?

Let’s respond to His word by praying this prayer together…

Father, I pray for boldness that we will rise and carry this holy mandate everywhere we go. May we tear down the walls of Christianity and take Jesus to the streets. I pray for sensitivity to the Holy Spirit to know who and what to pray for.

Lord, give us faith to pray for the sick and see them made well – faith to pray for the hurting and see them receive the joy of salvation – faith to pray for those in bondages of addiction and see them set free.

Teach us how to operate the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Show us what these keys give us access to; what it really means to have Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Prepare the hearts of those you would have us minister to. May the seeds we sow bear much fruit and may the name of Jesus be glorified forevermore!

In Jesus name,

Amen!

 

About Michelle Halloran

I'm a daughter of the most high God and bondservant of Jesus Christ, my Savior. Whoop! Whoop! Every time I say it I just want to shout! Also, my handsome husband and two boisterous boys are my world! I love them dearly and am blessed to walk this journey of life hand-in-hand with them. (Hugs and kisses to my Sweeties!!!) I'm a Kentucky girl, born and raised. Other than God and family, my joys in life are reading, cooking, and working out. (Got to work out after all that cooking! It's a balancing act, really. HaHa!) And put me anywhere near water - ocean, lake, river, or pool - and I'm in heaven! I don't have any particular qualifications to be a blogger, so this isn't a resume. I simply have a heart for Jesus and a passion to know Him more. It is my prayer that readers of "Dove & Sword' will experience the anointing and presence of God through the inspired words on each and every blog post. Whether it's a prophetic word, a motivational story or simply a lyric of love to the Father, I write from the heart as the Spirit leads. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together. Psalm 34:3
