“And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.”
Matthew 10:1, 7-8 KJV
Glory to God it is a great day to be alive and serving the King of Kings. It is the Fourth of July, America’s Independence Day.
Happy Fourth of July to you and your family!
We are so excited about what God is doing in the earth today and we are excited about what He desires to do through you.
You are very special to Him! You are one of a kind, there is no one like you. No one like you ever before and there will be only one of you to walk this planet. Ever!
Special to Him and special to the work that He has called you to do.
In our Scripture today, Jesus is commissioning His disciples, instructing them in what they are to do.
The work that He has been doing in His ministry was to be continued by them, after He leaves.
He told them:
• Preach the Gospel
• Heal the sick
• Cleanse the lepers
• Raise the dead
• Cast out devils
Here’s what we need to grasp today, is that this commissioning is not just for those 12 but it’s for every believer!
It’s our assignment as long as we are living and breathing on planet earth.
Many believers are wondering what God would want them to do with their lives. Well here’s where you start!
You have been commissioned by the Master “to go.” Sometimes I wonder why we wait, when He was very clear. He said go!
Too many have bought into the lie of the enemy that this commissioning is for just a select few. You know, those called to full-time ministry. Those apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers.
No, no, a 1000 times no! He has commissioned you and I to go!
Here’s something from Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke I saw on his Facebook page.
“By Faith twelve men (the Apostles) set out to tell the world about Jesus. One man (Paul) set out to demolish the ancient gods of Greece and Rome. Although emperors raged against them…THEY STILL DID IT! Well, Caesar had Paul beheaded in Rome, but 2,000 years later we still call our sons Paul and not Caesar. By faith we will cover the earth with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. FOR SURE. God bless you.”
We have been commissioned by our Lord to tell the world about Jesus!
On this, America’s Independence Day, let us declare to all that liberty and freedom is available for all!
People can be set free from condemnation, sin, sickness, disease and poverty, in the mighty Name of Jesus!
Father we thank You that you are sending us out into our neighborhoods, villages, cities, states and around the world to declare there is freedom and liberty in the finished work of Your Son.
Thank You for Your anointing and for Your Word to carry out this assignment. We ask for a holy boldness to declare these truths.
And Father this we know and declare, that whom the Son sets free is truly free indeed!
