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 … 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.

Pastor's Corner
 
5/7/00
In the days before the Industrial Revolution there existed two basic classes of peoples in the civilized worlds. The two classes that existed were: the very rich and the very poor. The rich had their physical needs met, and the poor struggled. The poor would look from afar off at the luxury of the rich,-- and desire. When their desire got extraordinarily strong, they would sneak closer to peer into the windows of the rich to dream. It motivated them to become the new rich!!
 
In the days after the industrial revolution with the help of aggressive business, aggressive government and aggressive poor, a new breed emerged. They were not filthy rich, and neither were they filthy poor. They were ‘middle class’; a breed of ‘better’ but not ‘best’ attempting to overtake the best (who were getting lethargic). This class has been growing right up to the current computer age. They ARE very motivated -- to never be poor again.
 
In all of this time, on the spiritual plane, the same basic thing was happening! The religious poor discovered that there was such a thing as being spiritually rich! God took some of them who grasped it and birthed new movements filled with His truth. We called it ‘the reformation’. Then the next generation of spiritually poor looked at the ‘rich’ and desired more too. So God blessed them also -- with gifts of the Spirit, signs and wonders. And a new kind of spiritually rich were born. We now say they were born of ‘revival’. They are motivated to be rich in God, and never spiritually poor again!
 
But there is yet another ‘step up’ that is coming. In the natural worlds it will be by the power of new technologies. It WILL make some poor rich! However, in the ‘spiritual’ it will be by the power God opening spiritual dimensions. This time, I believe, we shall call it: ‘restoration’; for we shall be ‘like Elohim’ (God). A new breed of HUMBLE rich; blessed by God!
