THE ANOINTING OF GOD 2 Excelling Beyond Boundaries
Before iniquity ravaged God’s creation, Adam held the title deed to the earth then he crossed the boundary forbidden by God. When God created the Heavens and the earth he had us in mind in Genesis 1:1. Therefore, it gives God great pleasure to see His sons manifested and abounding upon the earth while in a flesh suit and bottled-up in time with Satan. Even so when we correspond with Spoken Intelligence (from the Greek/Logos), we obtain the legal right to become supernatural, the Heroes of faith that the world needs.
God permits miracles to be performed to bring forth His glory upon the earth. Miracles are not for believers they’re for the unbelieving, that they may be brought to a place to trust God. The adversary, Satan tries to show forth wonders to draw others to follow him (Rev. 12:4). These are factual signs and wonders, but are like fake flowers which have no root, that appear to be beautiful, but have no life therein. It is impossible for God not to be real. Furthermore, He is able to do more than we could ever image or conceive, but Satan’s wonders are not to be believed in, as truth. God told Moses, His name was I Am (Ex 3:14). I Am . . . is the same then, as He is now. We can fill-in the blank after I Am, and God materializes into the abundance needed for whatever supply is needed.
As the World Turns
The paradox upon the earth is the beauty and the beast. The beast is the predator, Satan who inspires wickedness and rebellion against God. He is the one who holds many sons and daughters captive against the truth, who oppose the truth and continues to err without accepting the one who came to rectify. Jesus came to make things right by coming to earth. Spoken Intelligence became flesh and even the winds and waves of the sea, had to obey Him, defying natural laws by superseding them after the counsel of His own will. Regardless of this predator that roams to and from, seeking whom he may devour, the Spoken Intelligence still abides and keeps the earth in orbit and in rotation with precession around the sun. Man’s tendency to illegally cross God’s boundaries is harmful to the earth’s atmosphere (i.e. global warming). Inspired by greed, fallen man continues to refuse God and becomes corrupt to the core. Unless there is a directional shift back from whence error occurred, there is no hope for the lost who wander like ships without sails, headed for a waterfall: upon a crash course with the Creator at Judgment Day. These harm the beauty in nature to satisfy their coffers with selfish viscidities. Atrocities against nature will not go unpunished, because as innocent Abel’s blood screamed from the ground even creation yearns for justice.
The Invisible Things Clearly Seen through the Eyes of Faith
God gave man boundaries and we’ve broken every one. Nevertheless, grace allows man to abide by His commandments in the fulfillment of His law through the revelation of Jesus Christ. Physical laws are understood by the progressive revelation of Christ and the laws of nature are unlocked, giving mankind keys to exceed boundaries (i.e. time and space), simultaneously, man is strengthened by faith when physical laws are understood and believed to have their origin through God. Christians are propelled by the anointing through the door of faith allowing grace to reign, being built-up spiritually by maintaining right standing with God. By grace it becomes legal to be an exception to the rule and excel beyond expectations.
Setting your mind to strive for excellence beyond the normal capacities of the hum-drum and the ordinary is highly recommended by God. For it is written “But without faith it is impossible to please Him” (Heb 11:6a). Faith in God inspires exceptional achievement by thinking outside the box, pushing past temporal boundaries, outside of a comfort zone and into the uniqueness of incongruity. God’s finest trophies are anomalies. God allows true success within the legal operation of activities outside ordinary standards. For example, Jesus walked on water, and so did Peter until he thought and began to sink. Also, we can exceed any boundary given, such as gravity, in order that God may be glorified. Jesus said, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” (Mark 16:17-18). Therefore, the sons of God are given special privilege to perform miracles. Even in Moses day in the midst a great Pharaoh; Aaron’s rod was permitted to become a snake when placed upon the ground (Ex. 7:10). This process was duplicated by Pharaoh’s copy-cat priest, but their rods were devoured by Aaron’s rod, that later budded.
Man you don't need this stuff!
In the Presence of Evil
Many may think how could God permit such evil to happen, since He exists? The answer is deep and unsearchable however, the boundaries given may be a clue for the answer to the question. Why does God permit these things to happen? Once boundaries are crossed into forbidden territory, making things right requires boundaries to be crossed to fix the problem, such as when a traveler becomes lost. One must go back to the wrong turn made then go the right way.
The commandment that God gave to Adam originally was not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. That boundary was crossed, consequentially, a boundary had to be crossed to rectify and since the remedy eluded man, an answer had to come from outside of man. The title deed of the earth was given to the primogenitor of all evil, to the prince of the power of the air. God, Himself had to come across the boundary of eternity to enter time in order to make things right in a world that was given to anti-Christ manifestos.
“Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left”. . (Is. 54:2-3a).
Make room in your life for what you want before you receive it. So when it comes it will have its own place.
This is faith. This is what God loves!
