Week 5: Receive Jesus’ Kingdom: REVIVAL and TRANSFORMATION of Your Territory
By Pastor Robyn Beezley (nee Green), Tweed Heads, NSW
Spheres of Influence: Creative Arts & Religion – Worship
Intention: God’s Consuming Fire Protects Us and Sets Us on Fire for Him!
Biblical Promise: Hebrews 12:28-29 – “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.”
Deuteronomy 4:23,24 says, “Take care lest you forget the covenant of The Lord your God, which he made with you, and make a carved image, the form of anything that The Lord your God has forbidden you. For The Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.”
Receive God’s Promises for Your Territory:
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were thrown into a fiery furnace, made seven times hotter, because they would not bow down to King Nebuchadnezzar’s decree to worship an image made of gold. Because of their reverent worship and awe of Him, God inhabited the furnace and the consuming fire of His presence protected the Hebrew men from the natural fire.
I believe that God is expressly calling us, as His people in these days, to openly honour His kingdom on earth as a testimony to the ungodly and unbelievers. God is jealous to receive His people’s adoration and heartfelt worship and to have His kingdom inhabit our hearts and our praises. When we present our bodies as a living acceptable sacrifice, wholly and acceptable to Him, Our God who is a consuming fire, removes the dross from our lives and protects us. We will not bow to evil declarations and decrees and laws because God’s kingdom is in our hearts and His kingdom cannot be shaken by sin. When we offer God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe He inhabits us; setting us on fire; burning so hot for Christ that nothing can put out the flame! (Hebrews 1:7)
Pray and Fast with me with burning hot passion for REVIVAL and TRANSFORMATION:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We pray for the people of the land who have carved other gods and worshipped them in disrespect before you, O God.
We ask forgiveness for our selfish ways and disobedience caused by our pride of life, lust of the flesh and lust of the eyes.
We are mindful today, O God that you are a jealous God, who desires us to worship only thee in spirit and in truth.
We surrender our selfish ways and ask you to enable us to live with truth, faith, hope and love; honouring the Ten Commandments; upholding sexual purity, marriage, family values and integrity in our homes.
We ask you to purge out the dross of sin and degradation and consume us with your Holy Fire. Breathe upon us we pray, and ignite our hearts to honour your holy word and become living epistles who walk in harmony and love.
We pray that every believer in this nation of Australia will unite in prayer and proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord in Australia!
We declare today that Australia is the Great South Land of the Holy Spirit! We worship you as our one and only God – the righteous judge who rules over us with justice, wisdom, mercy, kindness and miracle working power! Amen
