The reason God didn’t take you to be with Him when you were born again is because you have the divine assignment to invade the impossible. The reality of the Christian life is measured by the impact on the impossible.
God or the Kiwanis Club?
Much of what we give God credit for can be done by the Kiwanis Club. I don’t mean God is not involved, I’m just saying all it is doing is tapping into human talent to accomplish what mankind can accomplish.
What satisfaction is there in human accomplishment? There is some, but it’s not really lasting. It’s nothing like having cancer disappear. It’s nothing like the mother that lost the use of one arm to an accident – lost three inches of bone. She couldn’t grasp, couldn’t raise her arm; she couldn’t pick up her two year old because of this surgery. She had five surgeries in four and a half years. There was nothing like watching a lady pray for her and watching God add the three inches of bone, adding all movement, all feeling, everything! Then she goes to pick up her two year old and her little girl says “No mommy, broken arm” because that’s all she has heard her whole life. To then see her say to her little girl, “No, it’s ok now.”
All the buildings I could build, all the money I could raise seem suddenly insignificant in the moment of seeing that little girl held by her mother. I’ll take that over a million buildings.
Let Him Out!
And that’s who you are! You were born into this family, the actual Spirit of the resurrected Christ took up residence in us. He’s in us and He wants out!
Bill and Beni Johnson are the Senior Leaders of Bethel Church in Redding, California. Bill is a fifth-generation pastor with a rich heritage in the Holy Spirit. The present move of God has brought Bill into a deeper understanding of the phrase “on earth as it is in heaven.” Bill and the Bethel Church family have taken on this theme for life and ministry, where healing and miracles are normal. Bill teaches that we owe the world an encounter with God, and a gospel without power is not the gospel Jesus preached. Bill is cofounder of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM).
