Clouds without rain.

Recently i was listening to a message that a preacher was preaching and while listening , the Lord pulled me to the side and said “they are clouds without rain”. I said yes Lord but help me to understand. He began to show me that they can preach a good message, move the congregation, have people shouting , running, dancing and all of that, they didn’t have the Glory. There are many a preacher that can preach , sing and dance but can they or are they  carrier’s of the Glory of God.

Jude:12 says Theses are those who are defiled in their feasts and run riot while feeding themselves without fear, clouds without rain that wander with the wind; trees, whose fruit has died, who are without fruit, which have died twice and they have pulled up from their roots(Aramaic Bible in plain English).

(KJV) says: These are spots in your love feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots.

 

We can have good preaching and little anointing. We can have bad preaching with little anointing and the churches are satisfied with it. we have become content on the comfortable messages that pastors are bringing and we even encourage the pastors to continue on bringing that good word . But the good word is not the word that’s going to challenge our faith, or even to have us feel the conviction of the Holy Ghost. Whats happening Church you don’t pray, fast and seek for God like you used to do.

We look for these clouds with out rain that’s what the Lord was saying we want, We want a good message but no Glory. Its the Glory of God that would challenge us and its the Glory of God that would keep us on our face. God says in the last days I will pour out of my Spirit, but it really seems like no on has the Spirit. How can you give what you don’t have, and we pretend to have it and go through the motions and the sheep know whats the truth but no one wants to offend and says— hey brother preacher that’s no from God. God forbid if we who are really hearing the Holy Spirit was to say that the message was earthly, fleshly, devilish, but that’s what James says in the book of James 3:8-18.

So Preachers, Teachers, Men and Women of God, lets get the Glory of God in our lives then when stand behind the pulpit to give God’s Word, His Glory would come forth and we would fade in the Presence of our Awesome God and let HIS Glory minister to HIS people.

Shalom, Shalom, Shalom, Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Church the Lord says LOOK FOR HIS GLORY, then you will find all that you need in the GLORY.

“And the Wall came Tumbling Down”

Could you imagine God telling you to walk around a city, a whole city and not say a word for seven days. Not a single word only the blowing of the rams horn(Shofar) is to be heard and the sound of your feet walking in the streets or the sand. And after seven days you now get the word to shout for the Lord has given you the city, and to your surpirse the walls of this great fortified city goes straight down into the ground before you and you litterally walk in and take possession of what is there for God. Does this sound unbelievable well believe it because its a true story.  When God had the children of Israel cross through the Jordon river (remember on dry ground) into the Land of promise to possess the land. God reestablishes His covenant with this new generation and then appears to Joshua as the Captain of the Lords Host, and tell Joshua who is a military man himself, “Joshua see , I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king and the mighty men of war”. But now The Lord gives Joshua instructions on how to accomplish this task. Perhaps God has called you as He has called Joshua, and said that he has hand picked you to lead a people or to do a special assignment. Perhaps He just called you to pray and have you follow the instructions the He has given to you. Many times we get into trouble because we know what to do and have been called by God but we don’t always follow the instructions given to us either in the manual (Bible) or the specific instructions given by the Lord Himself. Now is the time to begin to obey the voice of the Lord and do what He has commanded you to do. Lets begin to follow the instructions of the Lord and when we do we will get the Victory just like Joshua and the children of Israel.

 

Remember Shout for He has given you the City.

Shalom

Apostle Payne
