What are you asking Jesus for in 2020? Are you asking from your ego or a sincere heart? (Matthew 20:20)
There are many spies watching, pretending to be sincere, that they might take what you say and twist it, to mock, scoff, criticize, deny and reject the Name of Jesus, who in his day perceived their craftiness, and gives those who are sincere and willing the endowment, gifts, anointing, equipping to speak of the Way of God, preach the kingdom of God and his righteousness, teach Christ who saves, heals, delivers and sets free (Luke 20:20).
I refuse to shrink from declaring to you all that I have seen and know; what I have received from the Holy Spirit; sharing what is profitable spiritually, and teaching the kingdom (Acts 20:20)
When Jesus said, ‘Peace be with you,’ He showed them the evidence of enduring the Cross. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord was resurrected, alive, appearing in the flesh (John 20:20). I like the verse in the Amplified Classic even better, “So saying, He showed them His hands and His side. And when the disciples saw the Lord, they were filled with joy, delight, exultation, ecstasy, rapture” John 20:20
“Be born anew of imperishable seed, the living and abiding Word of God” 1 Peter 1:23
Be born anew and see the kingdom of God. Be born of Water and Spirit and enter the kingdom of God. Jesus says, “You must be born anew…be born of the Spirit” John 3:3-8
Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all things will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).
Return to your First Love in 2020 and be changed, transformed, blessed, favored, called, chosen and faithful to the Faithful and True Holy One, the Living One alive forever with the keys to Death and Hades (Revelation 1:18). “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My Word and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life; he does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life” John 5:24
The key for 2020 is to know the Word of God, keep the Word of God, and be kept from the hour of trial which is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell upon the earth (Revelation 3:10). Jesus is coming again; hold fast to the Word, hold fast to the Head; come to maturity in Christ and Christ in you; be filled with all the fullness of God by knowing the Love of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit sent to believers to empower and embody disciples with the mission of co-mission with Christ, co-heirs with Christ of all the promises of the Father to bring the good news, heal the broken hearted, set captives free, proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of God’s vengeance on evil, comfort those who mourn, bring the oil of gladness, the mantle of praise, that all we encounter may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. Be raised up, built up, repaired, fed, satisfied, fulfilled, possessing a double portion and everlasting joy. God gives recompense for the evil done against you, turning what was meant for evil for your good, and all will know those in the new covenant; the people the Lord has blessed, who greatly rejoice in the Lord, clothed with the garment of Salvation, the robe of Righteousness, dressed as a bride; watered gardens where Christ grows by the River of Holy Spirit life, springing forth in all nations, people, tribes and tongues that confess Jesus is Lord, believe in their heart, take Christ in you by faith through grace (Isaiah 61:1-11).
“You shall no longer be termed ‘Forsaken’ or ‘Desolate’ but you shall be called ‘My delight is in her’ and ‘Married’ for the Lord delights in you, and you shall be married…the Bridegroom rejoices over the bride” Isaiah 62:3-5
“Behold, I make all things new” Revelation 21:5
“To the thirsty I will give from the fountain of water of life without payment. He who conquers shall have this heritage” Revelation 21:6-7
“The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come.’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come.’ And let him who is thirsty come, let him who desires TAKE the water of life without price” Revelation 22:17
“Whoever drinks of this Water that I give will never thirst; the water that I give will become a spring of water welling up to eternal life” John 4:14
“If any one thirst, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water…glorified Christ Spirit” John 7:37-39
“Abide in Christ and Christ in you” John 15:4
