As ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. KJV Matthew 10:7 -- I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. KJV Matthew 16:19 -- Ye are come Ö unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, KJV Hebrews 12:22 On my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: KJV Acts 2:18 -- That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

IF THE RAPTURE WERE TODAY
WOULD YOU GO, OR WOULD YOU STAY,
WOULD YOU SCREAM OR WOULD YOU PRAY,
IF THE RAPTURE WERE TODAY?
 
IF CHRIST CAME TO EARTH TONIGHT,
WOULD YOU BE READY OR FILLED WITH FRIGHT,
WOULD YOU REJOICE AT HIS SIGHT,
IF JESUS CAME TO EARTH TONIGHT?
 
IF GOD ROLLED THE EARTH AWAY,
WOULD YOU SIGH -- OR WOULD YOU PINE AWAY,
FOR THE THINGS HE TOOK AWAY,
IF GOD CHOSE TO END THIS WORLD TODAY?
 
THE THINGS WE HOLD SO CLOSE AND DEAR,
THE THINGS WE HOPE, THE THINGS WE FEAR,
THEY SEEM SO MIGHTY AND IMPORTANT HERE;
BUT SHOULD THEY BE SO VERY DEAR?
 
IF THE FATHER CALLED YOUR NAME,
AND SAID OUT LOUD, "LET GO YOUR SHAME!",
WOULD YOU WISH CHRIST NEVER CAME,
TO OFFER YOU A BRAND NEW NAME?
 
I HOPE THAT YOU WILL THINK THESE OUT,
AND GIVE THE LORD A PRAISE FILLED SHOUT,
AND DEDICATE YOUR LIFE RIGHT OUT,
SO GOD CAN COME TAKE YOU OUT!!

4/25/99
Matthew 8:8-10 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it, he marveled.... (KJV)
 
I have to admit, I often feel the same way that Jesus felt in this circumstance! Whenever I hear somebody express a clear cut view of faith it is almost a total shock to me. I want to jump up and shout, "YES" or "THATíS RIGHT" or some other amen-like explicative. Faith seems to be so hard to find these days!
 
There is more to be gleaned from the reading of these verses than just the fact that faith is rare. These verses also show that faith is immensely practical and pragmatic. A person of Ďfaithí is not just making a religious statement of opinion. He is looking for something very specific and expecting to receive it. He is making a plea predicated on the reality of something very practical and real. The Centurion's words demonstrate the faith way. He said to Jesus, in effect, "You are the one who has the ability to get the job done! And all you have to do is agree with my request! SPEAK THE WORD ONLY!"
 
He is saying: I donít need theatrics, I donít need charisma, I donít need to be dazzled, and I donít need to see you on the Mount of Transfiguration in order to know that you have the power! He who has the AUTHORITY TO SPEAK already has the POWER TO PERFORM!
 
Three words; COME, GO, DO! Kind of sounds like, "Let there be light. And there was light."; donít you think? Jesus has all authority in Heaven and in Earth; go ye therefore and ASK IN FAITH BELIEVING. Go ahead! Make me marvel! Make all your friends marvel! Godís hand is not short; it is your hands that are in your pockets. Why not raise them in worshipful faith today.
