MANIFESTATIONS OF HIS PRESENCE!

Aug 18, 2021

Miracles and many other spiritual activities like prayer, praise, fasting, etc, can be done without the presence of God. That’s why a man can receive a miracle and walk back into his sinful lifestyle!!

The solution to compromises, lukewarmness, unseriousness, and the casual treatment of God’s things is the return of the awesome presence of God into the body of Christ.

It is the presence that introduces the fear of God in a place.

Thank God for the miracles, power, preaching, and anointing but it’s the dimension of His presence that makes men walk out of a meeting with no more desire and taste for sin.

Once you taste His presence, you can never have enough of Him.

Moses, after seeing all the wonderful demonstrations of God’s power knew that beyond power, anointing, miracles, signs, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, is the presence of God!.

There is a price to pay for it. Please don’t settle. Press in for the end-time dimension of His presence and glory.

These people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me,… Isaiah 29:13

The presence of God can never leave your heart the same. It will cause a change and an effect!

John 5:5-8,14…“See, you have been made well. SIN NO MORE, lest a worse thing come upon you.”

When you don’t understand the presence of God, you can receive a miracle and return to your sinful lifestyle.

The next move of God is beyond miracles, signs, and wonders. It will be a dimension that introduces the fear of God into the body of Christ. It will cause people to forsake their sinful lifestyles.

Jeremiah 20:9 But His word was in my heart like a burning fire Shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, And I could not.

It is a dimension of the fear and fire of God!.

Acts 5:11-12 Great fear came upon all the church …many signs and wonders were done among the people.

God escalated His miracles because of the great fear of God upon the church.

Then Saul sent messengers to take David,..the Spirit of God came upon them, and they prophesied.
Saul sent other messengers, and they prophesied likewise. Then he sent messengers again the third time, and they prophesied also. So he went there Then the Spirit of God was upon him also, and he prophesied. 1 Samuel 19:20-24

There was a radius (an environment) saturated with the power of God that anyone who got there prophesied.

That’s the level of the presence of God that makes sinners drop on their knees, convicted, and repentant because it carries a heavenly atmosphere of holiness and purity. Sin can not survive in it.

It only takes only the presence of God to take us to a place where we hate sin. ( Proverbs 8:13).

Ephesians 5:27 That He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.

And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14
So he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he neither ate bread nor drank water…Exodus 34:28

The presence of God sustained Moses and suspended the functions of his physical body.

There is more in God. Please don’t settle. Go for the higher levels and dimensions of operation of the Holy Spirit.

Read: Exodus 34:10

The presence of God took Moses back a thousand years before his birth and he wrote the book of Genesis. ( Exodus 25:40)

Then took John into the future to write the book of Revelations.

We must be willing to pay the price to walk into these dimensions.

And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit… Luke 1:41

Mary was so saturated with the presence of God that a mere greeting to Elizabeth caused the power of God to hit John the Baptist in the womb.

Exodus 40:34-35 Then the cloud covered the tabernacle of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. And Moses was not able to enter the tabernacle of meeting, because the cloud rested above it, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.

It is time for the presence of God to manifest and speak for itself!.

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Depart and go to the land which I swore to give.’ I will send My Angel before you. for I WILL NOT GO UP IN YOUR MIDST, lest I consume you on the way, for you are a stiff-necked people.”… Exodus 33:1-3

People can walk into the manifestation of God’s promises without His presence.

Stiffneckedness is when you insist on your desires and fail to yield to the Holy Spirit.

Live a life of brokenness and yieldedness!! ( Luke 22:42).

Jonah cried out, “Yet forty days and Nineveh shall be overthrown!” So the people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them. Jonah 3:4-5

The presence of God Jonah carried caused an entire nation to repent and be saved from destruction.

So the child grew and became strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his manifestation to Israel. … Luke 1:80

John never performed any miracles but he carried such a dimension of the presence of God that it drew an entire nation to repentance.

Freedom from bondage goes beyond mere promises. It takes the manifestation of the presence of God!.

Pray, fast, and seek the face of God, and stir up the higher dimensions of the manifestation of His presence upon your life!.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU. PASTOR BEN OCHOLA.
