The Jesus Conversation
Why are so many professing Christians absolutely miserable? Lots of us got burned when the "Love, Grace, Joy, & Personal Relationship with Jesus" message (that initially drew us to Him) got "balanced" with Law, Tradition, Religious Striving, and lots of other things that were nailed to the Cross and done away with...long ago! Thankfully, He is opening eyes and restoring the years that a religious "bait and switch" message and mindset devoured! (To be continued...)
Any prophet declaring that a "glory portal" will open over SELECT cities lacks an understanding of Jesus' finished work at the cross, the believer's position in Christ, and an understanding that Jesus is the consummate fulfillment of Beth-El (The House of God), The Gate of Heaven, and Jacob's Ladder. The angels of God ascend and descend on the Body of Christ. We are IN HIM and HE is IN US! JESUS is MORE THAN ENOUGH PORTAL FOR US ALL! We have the ability to function freely... FROM heaven ON this earth! A simple study of John 1:51 and Genesis 28 bears this out. The Extra-Biblical hype may stir the faith of some to walk in what has always been theirs. Nevertheless, it isn't a "fresh glory portal". Christ in you is the Hope of Glory (Col. 1:27). We are ALL Glory Portals! God is no respecter of persons, nor is He a respecter of geography! You don't have to wait for Jesus to "come to a city near you"! Wherever we "make our bed", He is there! There is NO PLACE where Emmanuel ("God with us") isn't with us!
This is by no means an attack on any group or individual. I love prophets (and am considered to be one in some circles) and the prophetic. The ignorance and abuse just truly grieve me. Too many folks are attempting to walk as New Covenant gifts with Old Covenant mindsets.
