Heidi Baker at the Revival Alliance Conference: What God Has Prepared

heidi conferenceWhat God Has Prepared

Mighty in the kingdom are the little broken ones who know how to rely on their big, big God. In our frailty, He is so much better and more amazing than we can imagine, and when we meet Him, our plans and our intentions evaporate before the awesome things He has prepared for us. It’s time to lay down our lives and step into His will, purpose, and plan and tune our ears to His voice. To be in tune with Him is to have the mind of Christ and results in thinking and doing things His way.

Jesus speaks of Himself continues

flowers for Jesus

Today we read some familiar verses from the book of Matthew in the way Jesus has read them and spoken them: Jesus is God. He is the Word. Jesus is the Son of God. He is the King. Where He is there the Kingdom of Heaven is. Jesus has the final say on who will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus has the authority to forgive sins. When Jesus sends you (His disciple) out you don’t worry as He will ensure His Spirit fills and guides you even in the toughest situation! Jesus has given a blanket covering for everyone who represents Him: the same privilege as Jesus (and God). Jesus can choose to whom He wants to reveal God. But the Good News is: He invites all to come to Him, especially if you are weary and carry heavy burdens of life. He has the last words.

“Come to Me, and I will give you rest.” This is an open invitation to all who want to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. No time limit until Jesus returns.

12:13 “So you, too, much keep watch! For you do not know the day or hour of My return.” No one knows when Jesus will return.

Last words: Matthew 28:18-20 After the resurrection of Jesus 

18 Jesus came and told his disciples, I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,[a] baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say,

‘People do not live by bread alone,
    but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’[a]

Jesus responded, “The Scriptures also say, ‘You must not test the Lord your God.’[a]

‘You must worship the Lord your God
    and serve only him.’[a]

17 from then on Jesus began to preach. “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”

Matthew 7:21-23

21 “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. 22 On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ 23 But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’

Matthew 9:1-2 Jesus Heals a Paralyzed Man

Jesus climbed into a boat and went back across the lake to his own town. Some people brought to him a paralyzed man on a mat. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralyzed man, “Be encouraged, my child! Your sins are forgiven.”

Matthew 10:16-20; 40

16 “Look, I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. So be as shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves. 17 But beware! For you will be handed over to the courts and will be flogged with whips in the synagogues. ..19 When you are arrested, don’t worry about how to respond or what to say. God will give you the right words at the right time. 20 For it is not you who will be speaking—it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

40 “Anyone who receives you receives me, and anyone who receives me receives the Father who sent me.

Matthew 11:27-30

27 My Father has entrusted everything to me. No one truly knows the Son except the Father, and no one truly knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”

28 Then Jesus said, Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” 

Romans 10: For Christ has already accomplished

The Good News is : For Christ has already accomplished. This is real to everyone who believes. This blogger has personally received healing and deliverance supernaturally through the Holy Spirit (the Spirit who gives life -resurrection power of God who works in and toward those who believe) in Christ Jesus. The birth of Jesus was a supernatural event. The death and resurrection of Jesus was a supernatural event. God is above nature. In fact, God is the Creator who created nature on earth. In this season of advent, we remember the supernatural God who accomplished a supernatural act through which mankind benefits: redemption of lives and healing of their bodies and souls just as their spirits prosper through the rebirth given by the Holy Spirit.

Romans 10:1-12 New Living Translation (NLT)

10 Dear brothers and sisters,[a] the longing of my heart and my prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved. I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal. For they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with himself. Refusing to accept God’s way, they cling to their own way of getting right with God by trying to keep the law. For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given.[b] As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God.

Salvation Is for Everyone

For Moses writes that the law’s way of making a person right with God requires obedience to all of its commands.[c] But faith’s way of getting right with God says, “Don’t say in your heart, ‘Who will go up to heaven?’ (to bring Christ down to earth).And don’t say, ‘Who will go down to the place of the dead?’ (to bring Christ back to life again).” In fact, it says,

“The message is very close at hand;
    it is on your lips and in your heart.”[d]

And that message is the very message about faith that we preach: If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. 11 As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.”[e] 12 Jew and Gentile[f] are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him.

that you may become sons of light

Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.
Then Jesus said to them, “A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you; he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going.
While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.” These things Jesus spoke, and departed, and was hidden from them.
For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ,who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’
For You will light my lamp; The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.
For You have delivered my soul from death.Have You not kept my feet from falling, That I may walk before God In the light of the living?
I have heard of you, that the Spirit of God is in you, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom are found in you.
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.
that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of Godilluminated it. The Lamb is its light.
There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord Godgives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.
