MORE

2Cor. 12:3-4 And I know how such a man — whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows — was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak.

There is always more. I can still hear the cries of prayer repeatedly cried out in our services in the mid-nineties. “MORE !” It was a simple, desperate, sincere, plea for God. We had tasted something profound that had awakened us to the awareness that there were new realms of God available to all of us. We had been shocked out of our complacent satisfaction of mediocrity by the sudden, unmistakeable appearance of the Lord Himself in our church. Don’t get me wrong, we were not ungrateful for what we had tasted, we were just aware of the infinite nature of God and wanted His visitation to deepen in our lives. We had seen that we had lived for years far below what we were now tasting and no one wanted to return to what others were calling the normal Christian life. That kind of normal would never do, we had seen that there was more, and “more” was our cry. Charles Spurgeon also spoke of other places in the upper realms of God, check it out.

“There are the common frames and feelings of repentance, and faith, and joy, and hope, which are enjoyed by the entire family; but there is an upper realm of rapture, of communion, and conscious union with Christ, which is far from being the common dwelling-place of believers. We have not all the high privilege of John, to lean upon Jesus’ bosom; nor of Paul, to be caught up into the third heaven. There are heights in experimental knowledge of the things of God which the eagle’s eye of acumen and philosophic thought hath never seen: God alone can bear us there; but the chariot in which he takes us up, and the fiery steeds with which that chariot is dragged, are prevailing prayers.”

Spurgeon said that we may never be caught up into heaven in this life like John or Paul but he also said there was a place that the “fiery steeds of prevailing prayer” would take us. Spurgeon had obviously been carried away by the Spirit into some of these ecstasies and was telling us that there are places in the Spirit available to us that can be opened to us when we call upon the name of the Lord. Those precious moments when we are caught up in the Spirit of the Lord are very significant in our lives. It is in these times that we are empowered, changed, and receive guidance and equipping for the challenges that lie before us. Our world is reeling under the birth-pangs of the coming Kingdom. Our spirits are trembling in joyful anticipation of the return of our Lord. As the problems of the world deepen our need for divine power increases. Maybe today that desperate plea is forming in your heart, you know, that cry of hunger that we lift corporately before the Lord. Can you hear it deep down inside of your heart? If so let it out. More Lord, MORE!

  2. we saw a dying fellowship[ come to life, people were very religiuos but really wanted more, they got what they asked for, and more. things started changeing and no longer the services were the same other beleivers in the Body of Christ came over to help and encorage from asembles of God , some Spirit filled Babtists that would teach on the fulness of the Holy Spirit all kinds of people just showed up God brought them! We also got involved with our group and it hasnt been the same! Pewople just got tired of it always being the same, before old church songs were sung with no meaning you would almost fall asleep. the testimonys would be boreing, the sermonds would put you to checking your watch to see how much time was left so you could get out of there! now you better like to raise your hands and worship the Lord! every body is getting down and worshipping the Lord! the teachings are now life changeing and you better get there early to get a seat, the last three sundays we had to bring in many chairs we filled up and it was standing room only we were able to make more room, all this started because people want more and word is getting out and I hear we swill run ourt of room, God did this during this time people wanted more! like oliver twist, can I have more? God is giving it right now! We are totally amazed no man did this! we keep it totally in the word aqnd ask for all we say be of God and in the Holy Spirit so this work keeps going this was a God willed move and we all know it. This is happening in a Southern Babtist church!

  3. Eph 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

    This is our hearts desire; to know God through revelation in the Holy Spirit surpassing any human limitations and diving into depths untold. Take us deeper Lord, bring us so close that we are indeed the ones who hear your heartbeat, who have Your vision, and who are the living expressions of Your love to a lost world.

  4. More and more LORD more of your precious touch. Show me more, I am so in Love with you Father. More of your power. Thank you Holy Spirit. Your one of a kind, praise Jesus.

  5. More of you Lord! And less of us! Increase in our lives !! Awaken our spirtiual senses!!! !Your kingdom come your will be done in our lives and this nation !! Let us move with Lamb!!! Amen!!:)
