So that is where we are going.
We are sequencing a book of Acts culture where every believer moves in signs and wonders and miracles.
Now friends - Philippians 2 - God has opened this chapter to me in the last week and He has revealed to me that this is a revelational key that unlocks to you and me the highest level of authority and power that heaven has got to offer and it is all about an attitude that we carry about in our heart.
DO YOU KNOW THAT ATTITUDE DETERMINES YOUR ALTITUDE?
The wrong attitude will determine the wrong low level of your life - the right attitude will determine the highest level possible God created the human being to live in. In this one simple basic message today, you will see that the revelational key of having the right attitude that will elevate you to the highest level of authority and power that God created human beings to live in. How many of you would like to know what that attitude is? How many of you have got impossibilities you are trying to invade and right now they refuse to bow their knee to you? You maybe feel like bowing your knee to them?
Well here in this attitude impossibilities will bow to you. It is the attitude of the most significant Person that ever walked the earth. And it is the attitude that the Bible instructs us, in wisdom that we should also have this attitude.
You won't want to have this attitude unless you see that this attitude will release to you the highest authority and power that heaven can give.
(Philippians 2:5) "Same as Christ Jesus". (v6) "Did not consider equality with God ... made Himself nothing ... He humbled Himself". God did not humiliate Him, God did not humble Him - He humbled Himself.
The attitude to have that will get you exalted to the highest place is not to grasp after the highest place. But to make yourself nothing.
(Acts 10:38) "How God anointed Christ Jesus with the Holy Spirit and power and healing ALL who were under the power of the devil because God was with Him". One of the most fascinating and amazing things to me is that Jesus never did ANY miracles until He was anointed by God with the Holy Spirit and power.
That is extremely significant because on a few occasions Glenda and I have stood before people, medical science has declared will not walk again and they have walked and are still walking. We have seen a few blind eyes opened and deaf ears opened. And we have had some advanced cancer obliterated out of bodies through the prayer of faith. But it is NOT ENOUGH and it is TOO FEW!
But this year I felt the invitation of God - the summons of God where what has been a rare occasion on my life and your life to become the regular weekly experience. We are going to someone with cancer and fear came on me. I am frightened of disappointing people! Then walking away and not getting healed. Then I thought "Well Lord if Your Presence is not on me in full measure like it was on Jesus then forget it. There will be no miracles anyway! But ... if you would give me Your Presence and on every individual in this church - if you would give us Your Presence without measure then it is a done-deal. It is a totally different situation".
I have to tell you I have seen people jump out of beds totally healed - I hardly knew what I was doing. Something came over me and I was partnering with Almighty God and it wasn't difficult.
It is profoundly nerve-wracking and frightening when the manifest Presence of God isn't there.
