The Dimension of Apprehension

African American news from Pasadena - Religion - the dimension of apprehensionTo apprehend means arrest, to seize and hold legally . . . Isaiah 45:2-3, "I will go before you and make the crooked places straight . . . I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places . . . 

Treasures out of darkness and riches of secret places was God releasing to the Children of Israel all of the goods and property of their enemies as well as complete control over the trade routes. The trade routes were a continual flow of increase; multiple streams of income.

The world system is crashing and working a job is not going to provide the kind of resources you need to fulfill your purpose and advance the Kingdom of God in this hour! We have been living way below our earning power and potential! A spirit of deception has crept in making us believe that God is going to supernaturally supply and advance by our church service alone or making us think that our present state is our lot in life and there is nothing more.

It's high time to pursue your personal purpose and destiny and do it with all your might. The next wave of increase is coming from sheer diligence, for it is the diligent that shall be made rich.

The Lord said, "It is I that gives you the power to get wealth, if it did not require work we would not need power. Be diligent in the area of your call and gifting and it will unleash everything on back log!

I was in prayer and saw a door open with dusty boxes tumbling out like an avalanche. There are things that have been on back-log, on hold, on reserve that we have stopped pursuing thinking the season is over, we missed it or it has expired. Not so says the Lord! If you will pick up the mantle of diligence and the bended knees of prayer you can unlock EVERYTHING that God has made available to you.

This is certainly not a message of prosperity but a clarion call for you to fulfill your divine purpose and be an influential force releasing the Kingdom of God. I heard a man say if you want to take a city, buy it!

So in the pursuit of prayer there are two reasons you should stop praying; if what you have been praying for has manifested or if you have a divine unction in your spirit that it is already done! Write the book, sing the song, deliver the message, paint the picture, design the clothing, build the business, and release the movie . . .
