The days of playing, prophesying and preaching in the kiddie pool are over because this season of lockdown has matured the body of Christ in ways they don’t even realize yet. Just as children mature during winter seasons and boys become men during war seasons, so has happened to the body of Christ. We didn’t know it was happening but it was.
As the doors swing open again, the war ends and the pool is ready for swimmers, we are all going to realize we want more than milk, we have now become meat eaters. Our appetite for spiritual things has changed from not interested to very interested; from church to Jesus Christ; from the cross to the resurrection from the dead.
What we are going to see is that we are done being walked on, controlled, manipulated and lied to. The pursuit of truth is going to be insatiable in the hearts of people. The desire to live an abundant life has been conceived in us and we will find those who have been with Jesus and we will walk with them.
Everything changed during 2020 and we don’t realize it yet, but as soon as we come out of it, it will manifest, multiply and Jesus will be magnified as the resurrected King of us all.
Hebrews 6:1 “Let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God, instruction about cleansing rites, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.”
