APOSTOLIC CONVERGENCE- IMPACT 2015!

One of the things on my heart the last few days, as we approach 2015, is that we are coming “Full Circle” in the purposes of God to see a “true balance” that the “Word and the Spirit” always bring! Most us as, as reformers, do not particularly like the word “balance!” Some even believe balance is like compromise, settling for the norm instead of pressing on. But the Proverb say “A false balance is an abomination to the Lord.” (11:1)

True balance, or a just weight, is HIS DELIGHT! Balance brings a true alignment, and the alignment comes as a result of a revolution, or a re-volving that brings us to a “true center!” The center of it all is Jesus, the Christ! Col. 1:15-18- He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. ( are held together ). And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, THAT IN THINGS HE MAY HAVE THE PREEMINENCE. (First place in everything)

We are no longer “on the verge” of something coming, or happening, it is here because we are in a “con-verge” or a convergence where two or more things come together, or meet together at the center! Although sometimes it seems the differences are too great, I pray tonight “that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding (heart) being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints… (Ep. 1:17,18)

This great coming together of “heaven and earth”, the kingdom and the church, apostles and prophets, etc. is to bring us to the full restoration of all things, spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since time began… Let us rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, much more, having now received the atonement, i.e. at-one-ment, or the reconciliation. We have been given the ‘ministry’ of reconciliation and the ‘word’ of reconciliation! It is time we come together in this great convergence that will bring apostolic impact, not only to the church, but in the world. Let us press on more than ever to dialogue and be committed to the word of His grace, which is able 1) build you up, and 2) give you an inheritance among all those who are being sanctified. (Acts 20:32)

Yours for the kingdom,

jim
