Given yesterday’s post and my recent reblog of “You’re the One to Effect a Change” from our dear brother Saint of Christ, you will recognize that the Lord wants me to emphasize the absolute NECESSITY of our SPEAKING FORTH His omnipotent word to change our circumstances in this fallen world. Praise God for rendering us effectual agents of His will, for making us His lampstands in the darkness! Whoo-hoo!
To describe, teach, and illustrate more of the specifics of how we are to accomplish this, I will be reposting the six-part series “The Joint Enterprise of Grace and Faith: Making the Word Become Manifest.” I am overflowing with excitement about this for two reasons. First, it is so important to the Lord that we apply His word FAR more than we currently are doing. Second, Parts IV, V, and VI contain powerful personal testimonies of some miraculous workings of God in members of my family; my duty in each case was to KNOW His word, BELIEVE it, and SPEAK it forth to overcome the lies with truth.
So are you with me? I sure hope that you are, and that you commit to reading all six parts as I repost them. It is my prayer that everyone who reads this series be touched and moved by the Lord Himself in accordance with His will, for His glory. Amen.
So very much love in Christ, your sister deanna

Not only that, but God has likewise already procured our sanctification and our glorification (see 1…
