The Eternal Purposes Of God

I think we need to ask ourselves this question; Find Out What God is doing and do it with Him

This is a major key to CHRISTIAN LIVING in the Kingdom…it’s not just about what we are doing, but rather what is He doing!

Isaiah 14:24-27 NKJ
“24 The LORD of hosts has sworn, saying, “Surely, as I have thought, so it shall come to pass, And as I have purposed, so it shall stand: 25 This is the purpose that is purposed against the whole earth, And this is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations. For the LORD of hosts has purposed, And who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?”

This scripture is talking of the eternal plans of God,

  1. It shall come to pass
  2. It shall stand
  3. It will touch the whole earth and over every nation.
  4. How can possibly stop it? None, not one

No devil in hell nor with all his army cannot stop it, no man can stop it, GODs plans will come to pass, even if you don’t believe God can do it… that will not change it!!!

  • The enemies plan is for us to focus on our little world…our little issues….

Find Out What God is doing in your world and do it with Him!

While we are here on earth there is business to do, there is a farm to be managed…we all have a plan and purpose. It is not about arriving in heaven! Or God would take us into heaven the moment we get saved!! Then there wouldn’t be any backsliders!

  1. Why do good people give up their following JESUS and return to the vomit of the world that they were saved from?
  2. Why do even pastors quit the ministry and lose faith?

I BELIEVE THEY LOSE SIGHT OF THE ETERNAL PURPOSES OF GOD!

People end up living passive lives…forgetting that they are playing in a strategic battle…they have an enemy that wants to harm them and win at any cost!  Passive living takes your sight of the bigger picture!!

When the Cowboys played last season they were at the bottom of the top eighth position going into the finals……THEY DIDN’T GIVE UP! Why? They had a bigger picture in mind….they made the biggest comeback ever to finish second place.

We need to do the same, not lose focus of the big picture of Gods plan and His eternal purposes. His church, His bride will conquer and see victory in the earth….Esther was an orphaned girl for many years before coming queen and delivering the Jews, who also had a son Cyrus who later also delivered Gods people from captivity of Babylon..

HABAKKUK 2:2-3 AMP
“Write the vision And engrave it plainly on tablets So that the one who reads it will run. “For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time It hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, Because it will certainly come; it will not delay.”

 

But God has a plan for everyone of us. “plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope.”
JEREMIAH 29:11 AMP

 

Ephesians 3:10-11 NKJV
“to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God (many sided parts of Gods wisdom) might be made known by the church (you and I) to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places, according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord,”

 

This is where we have a problem, most of humanity remains currently under the captivity of the powers of darkness even though man is actually intended to instruct the principalities and powers in heavenly places. The rulers of this age have deceived mankind that the teacher has become the student. But this scripture tells us that there is going to be a divine reversal because God is fully committed to His eternal purpose.

 

Hebrews 12:1 NKJV
“since we are surrounded by such a great a cloud of witnesses, (witnesses watch) they are watching for something?

That sounds to me like an important battle, the stadium is full and a heavenly crowd is watching…..that the church (who is the church)?? Say it….I am the church…

So this heavenly crowd of witnesses are watching for US the church to display the many parts of the wisdom of God to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places…..WOW!!

Let’s look at the last wise words of Jesus……

Matthew 28:19-20 NKJV
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe (some things) all things that I have commanded you (the whole ball game); and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age”

 

Ephesians 3:20-21 NKJV
 “Now to Him who is able…He is able….don’t doubt Jesus

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
