The Abundant Life Movement’s Transformational Bridge Over Troubled Water .
What’s God going to say to my questions? I’m braced for the worst. I’ll climb to the lookout tower and scan the horizon. I’ll wait to see what God says, how he’ll answer my complaint. FULL OF SELF, BUT SOUL-EMPTY. And then God answered: Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run. This vision message is a witness pointing to what’s coming. It aches for the coming – it can hardly wait! If it seems slow in coming, wait. It is on the way. It will come right on time. Look at that man, full of himself but soul empty. But the person in right standing before God through loyal and steady believing is fully alive, really alive. Habakkuk 2:1-3. MSG.
The Abundant Life Biblical Actionable Intelligence and Spiritual Nutritional revealed truths are building a bridge over life’s most demanding issues: Death, Poverty, and Generational Curses in the fight for Souls of Humanity. In days of old, it was Zion’s Bridge, the means of communicating messages between the prophet and the temple of our God, synonymous with The City of God. In the New Testament, Zion is The New Jerusalem, God’s spiritual kingdom, the city of a living God. As horrific as these challenges are, they are not without a solution on earth. God has revealed the obstacles to a people with a message of resolution and restoration leading the way to The City of God. It’s the Called of God, laborers, and servants that carry the message of Jesus Christ’s saving grace through His death on the Cross of Calvery. It is His righteousness that builds the bridge to salvation. Come, let’s go on from there, we need all that Christ has to offer us unto full maturity. A life of abundance from loving Christ with all our Heart and soul, and loving others as thyself; through which comes the peace, joy, and right standing with God. The Lord, our God is He who will baptize you into His purpose, plan, and strategy for eternal life. Herein is balance victory of a God designed life.
The message of confessing The Word of God, noted in The Book of John, as appose to sin, introduces the receiver to Jesus Christ as The Messiah. The Bibical Actionable Intelligence and spiritual nutritional messages of trust build the solid foundational bridge on The Rock, Christ Jesus; to overcome the troubled water of everyday challenges facing humanity. The message of the Gospel’s revealed truth in your life is the key given to you according to the purpose of God, the plan of God, the strategy of God, and the call of God. This key in full maturity has the power to open the doors to Jesus’ saving Grace, His life-light, love, and liberate receivers to do, be, and have the inheritance God stored up just for you. He who the Son sets free is free indeed. He is the King of Glory, the Great I am, and Prince of Peace. He can do anything you know when you believe on Him. I encourage you who do not believe to renew your mind to believe on Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior by first confessing your sin. Those of us who do believe are challenged to go on in His power to receive your inheritance. Jesus Christ is the author and finisher of our faith, hope, and love until the glory of God cover the earth in the abundance of life, The Heavenly Kingdom.
The forerunners are prophets, pastors, teachers, and those all around you caring the message of The Gospel of Jesus Christ, The Word of God, introducing a Savior to a hurt, confused, and dying world. The key is to cultivate life, light, love, liberty, and laborers by building the deliverance bridge for yourself, those around you, and for future generations. An article by, David Leonhardt, New York Times – March 23, 2022; reports on the rise of violent crimes since early in 2020, Covid-19 pandemic, and has continued on into 2022. He asked the question, “what explains the crime wave”? He points to several plausible explanations but conclude the most persuasive answer to the question comes from criminologists and historians who have studied past crime waves. Their studies show an increase in trends when people lose trust in society’s institutions and basic fairness. Crime tends to also increase when empathy for other citizens decline, and anomie rises. Herein notes a lack of social control and regulations, or a lack of moral standards in society. Their study gave the example of the spike in crimes during the 60s, the 70s when social unrest was at a peak, and the polls reportedly showing now nearly 80 percent of Americans are dissatisfied with the country’s direction. I submit to you an identity crisis and insufficiency in a purposeful lifework for the souls of humanity. The anomie theory reflects a loss of moral norms and standard for people to live by. The lack of a solid foundational structure in anything is a crisis. The house will not stand but will fall when build on shaky ground. Biblically, without a vision the people will cast away all restraints, and he who doesn’t identify with a moral truth to stand under will catch onto any and everything that comes near them. This is evident from the hours people spend on social media auguring a point without merit or firsthand knowledge of the subject. A seemingly angry people at everything and everyone – contradicting even themselves; reflecting unstable minds, will, emotions, and imagining the worst of others. This bridge to abundant life is love, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost; this is a solid rock foundation of truth and faith in God. God’s Will and plans are for wholeness in spirit, body, and soul and can only be obtained from a life in Jesus Christ. He is our “I Am” God, the I Am all that you need Him to be in the process of overcoming your individual and social opticals. As an overcomer, you have been through the blood, fire and the water by way of picking up your cross and following Christ. The cross I carry is that of death from sin, from spirits of infirmities, poverty, and generational curses. But under the Holy Spirit’s guidance in fellowship with Jesus Christ, I learned to lose the things of God by calling Heaven on Earth through the Word of God, and to bind The Devil by rebuking evil spirits on earth, in the name of Jesus. Praying the Word reproduces Heaven on Earth, and it is the transforming bridge leading you to Christ Jesus unto full maturity.
The heart of it all is your willingness to submit to God’s plan, purpose, and process. He will build the bridge on a solid foundation when you submit to obedience in applying the Word of God to your everyday life. To build a solid bridge, I first identify the obstacles, count the cost, and then gather the antidote to build on. The anointing of Gods comes by way of the spirit of God found in the Word of God. The Word will give life-light to your identity and your purpose. Thy word is a lamp to the feet of those seeking Him and will move you according to His purpose, plan and strategy. His Word is alive, active, and sharper than a double-edge sword when coming out of your mouth. A double-edge sword cuts both ways, coming out of your mouth and when it touches the thing where to you send it. Peter was murdering Christian, denied Jesus three times, yet he was becoming what God called him, a rock; and he became the rock to be used for God’s purpose and plan. He wants to change your name also (from violence, confusion, and chaos) according to his divine purpose.
The transformational bridge revealing truths from the Kingdom of God about the re-construction of my house and challenges afforded me the strategy to overcome death, poverty and generational curses. As young children, good parents don’t allow you to go wherever you want, say what you want, nor do everything you want to do. Spiritually we are children of God’s Kingdom-needing to be raised again; and as babies, we feed from the milk of His Word. Then in the stages of adolescence and on into young adulthood, we desire more as we master the high school mind of thought on into the graduate levels of submission to God’s way of doing things. In the process, He uncovered my true identity, and healed me physically, mentally, and emotionally from the negative images in my mind. I was sinking deep in sin, never to rise no more! But I became a God chaser to allow the master of my faith to carry me to His peaceful shore. Then from within and out His Word washed me clean to see the light of day. I no longer sort self-help nor idolized the world’s way to please my anguish heart. Christ’s love has lifted me higher than anything I’ll ever known. When nothing else could help me, His powerful loving arm lifted me out of the dungeon. Now, I am telling the World I have it all, life and more life, and keep getting more. In my relationship with Christ Jesus in full maturity. His love, peace, joy, and wisdom have aligned me with His purpose, plan, and strategy for a life-light of service in abundance. From a sick, lost & lonely nobody, I found my identity in Christ and received my divine purpose with a heart of love to share in service to everybody. He is the Master and Savior my heart longed for. Praise Jesus now and forever.
The struggle of overcoming your obstacles will not destroy you unless you quit the process. An old proverb says, “there are three ingredients in the good life: learning, earning, and yearning”. I say to you to allow the pressure to launch you out into the deep, through valley lows and the shadow of death to get the anointing you need from God. He has the strategy to get you out of every situation as you abide in the presence of His Holy Spirit. At every turning point, the Devil will be there to discourage you, to throw his negative dots at you, saying things like you are not enough, you can’t do this, who do you think you are, nobody cares about what you have to say, and on and on; but you must feed your faith and stove the wolves. A sacred key her to know is you are in a spiritual war called warfare, an active armed conflict against an enemy – your greatest enemy is against your own fleshly desires to do as you have always done; but, in the end you will win in Revelation of Christ Jesus. If you don’t know that, the Devil will keep on taking your stuff. Your faith will come from hearing and hearing the Word of God, and the creation of the new life you want will come by way of how you identify yourself and the words coming out of your mouth. The best thing you can do for God helping you is to take your everyday ordinary life: your sleeping, eating, the works of your hand, and your walk-in life’s connections and relationships – place them before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for Him. Practice every day steeping yourselves in God’s reality, God’s initiative, and God provision allowing Him to guide you through the process. Our Lord and Savior will lead you to life and more life of love, peace and joy of the Holy Ghost in the process.
Will thy be made whole? God’s purpose of sending His Son in the image of His Father on Earth, His death on the cross, and the resurrection power of His Holy Spirit was for our saving salvation unto wholeness. The plan of the Blood of Christ on the Cross of Calvery was to show us the way to Eternal Life. His strategy cultivated the saving of our souls’ mind, will, emotion, and imagination unto maturity; and His Call reproduces the life-light, love, and liberty for all who believe and receives. So, let’s do it full of belief, and confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. And let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on. Hebrew 10:22-25. God always keeps His Word. His strategy for salvation unto full maturity has had the power and working of resurrecting souls on earth for over 2,000 years. We who are believers, and the call of God are mandated as witnesses of His Eternal Life plan for all humanity. This is not the learning and doing of legalistic rules and moral acts, nor your church’s denominations and traditions. This is believing and receiving Jesus Christ as Lord over every area of your life; to live a life of prayer, praise, and worship, and of following Christ the one and only Messiah. Jesus is calling your name; I encourage you to fear not, open your eyes to see and your ears to hear what His Holy Spirit is saying to you and answer His call today. The life cycle of us humans is only as solid as the foundational truths we stand under. I pray the eyes of your understanding be enlightened to become the authentic you God created you to be, In Jesus name.
The bridge over the power of death is the overcomer’s victory in the fight for your own soul salvation. The pleasure of sin has an end result- it’s called death, therefore, when you received Jesus’ Christ as your Savior, you have received the counter response to death for life eternal – to fear death no more. The revealed foundational truths you learned in the process is the saving grace of Jesus Christ unto eternal life. Likewise, the shed blood of Christ Jesus on the Cross of Calvery gave you the antidote for poverty and generational curses. This is the sacred wisdom key of the truth of the saving Grace and power of the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ living in you; you are now a witness for others to build the bridge over their obstacles. The obstacles from Satan come to still, kill, and destroy your future; but God sent His Son not to destroy the World but that through Him humanity will be saved. Joseph said to his brothers in Genesis 50:20, “Don’t be afraid! I have no right to change what God has decided. You tried to harm me, but God made it turn out for the best, so that He could save all these people, as He is now doing.”
Scripturally, you will learn the truth from the Word of God to build a bridge over your own adversities. Salvation is only the beginning to Eternal Life; Jesus took care of that optical once and for all by His death on the Cross of Calvary. The Holy Spirit of our living God can now cultivate you to full maturity for His good works in a life of purpose and abundance in service to others, the ultimate purpose of God’s plan for your life. At some point, you must ask yourselves, “How bad do you want it,” and “Will thy be made whole”?
Though the cherry trees don’t blossom, and the strawberries don’t ripen, though the apples are worm-eaten, and the wheat fields stunted, though the sheep pens are sleepless and the cattle barns empty, I’m singing joyful praise to God. I’m turning cartwheels of joy to my Savior God. Counting on God’s Rule to prevail, I take heart and gain strength. I run like a deer. I feel like I’m king of the mountain!” Habakkuk 3:17-19 MSG.
