SEEKING THE SPIRIT WITHOUT MEASURE
The power of the Spirit without measure is about to be made manifest in the Church, like it was under the ministry of the Lord Jesus and His disciples and in the early church (by a borrowed anointing) as recorded in the Acts of the Apostles as recorded in
John 2:11 KJV: This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
John 3:34 KJV: For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
John 7:31 KJV: And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?
John: 14:12 KJV: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
Luke 9:1 KJV: Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over ALL devils, and to cure diseases.
Luke 9:6 KJV: and they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing everywhere.
Luke 10:1 KJV: After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
Luke 10:17-19 KJV: and the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. (18) And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. (19) Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over ALL the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Acts 5:12-16 NKJV: and through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s Porch. (13) Yet none of the rest dared join them, but the people esteemed them highly. (14) And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women, (15) so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. (16) Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were ALL healed.
However, today, this scope of miracles this power will perform will be greater than just the physical miracles we see recorded in the Gospels and the Acts fulfilling:
Haggai 2:9 KJV: The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
We will see: Physical (like those recorded above); Intellectual (like in Dan. 1.17,20); Political (like in Dan.2-12; Est.8.1-2, 8; 10.2-3); Economic (like in Gen.41.37-57) and Environmental (like with Moses in Ex. 7-15) miracles.
A Mnemonic for remembering this is PIPEE (Physical, Intellectual, Political, Economic, Environmental).
Furthermore, the intellectual miracles will be produced by the manifestation of the FULNESS of ability of the mind of Christ: giving INCRIDIBLE Photographic memory, Language learning, Artistic, Musical and Mathematical skills as has been observed in autistic savants, BUT WITHOUT the autistic side effects and ALL in one human mind SIMULTANEOUSLY.
A Mnemonic for this is PLAMM (Photographic, Language, Artistic, Musical, Mathematical).
This WONDERFUL, COMPLETE SPECTRUM OF THE SUPERNATURAL manifestation of BOTH the WISDOM AND POWER of the Spirit without measure will be unique in human history and will fulfill these prophetic scriptures:
1 Corinthians 1:19-24 KJV: For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. (20) Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? (21) For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. (22) For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: (23) But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness; (24) But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1Corinthians 2:9-10 KJV: But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things that God hath prepared for them that love him. (10) But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
This incredible wisdom, ability and power of God that will be made manifest will make the wisdom and understanding of natural man hitherto, pale into insignificance so causing God to be glorified!
This will fulfill
Zechariah 2:13 NIV: Be still before the LORD, all mankind, because he has roused himself from his holy dwelling.”
Zechariah 2:13 GW: “Everyone be silent in the presence of the LORD. He is waking up and setting out from his holy dwelling place.”
1Peter 2:15 KJV: For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
The glory of God that will be released and manifested will dispel the current GROSS MORAL AND SPIRITUAL darkness that is presently covering the nations:
Isaiah 60:1-3 NKJV: Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. (2) For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. (3) The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
Isaiah 25:7 NIV: On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations;
This will then cause the world to be turned ‘upside down’ or ‘the right way up’!
Acts 17:6 KJV: And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;
In our article next week, we will see HOW to seek this Spirit without measure INDIVIDUALLY.
