“Key to Being Productive in the Kingdom”
Miracles in the Midday with Prophet Waiters Briley
June !4, 2018
Opening Scripture: “And Jesus answered them, ‘The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified and exalted. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone [just one grain, never more]. But if it dies, it produces much grain and yields a harvest. The one who loves his life [eventually] loses it [through death], but the one who hates his life in this world [and is concerned with pleasing God] will keep it for life eternal. If anyone serves Me, he must[continue to faithfully] follow Me [without hesitation, holding steadfastly to Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]; and wherever I am [in heaven’s glory], there will My servant be also. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.’” (John 12:23-26 AMP)
Prayer/praise: “O LORD, You have searched me and known me” (Psalm 139:1 ESV). Thank you for your grace Father! Holy Spirit I ask You to send forth your anointing! Glory to God forever! Lord we ask you to clean our hearts. Hallelujah! Take our lives LORD and let them be lived for your glory! In Jesus name, Amen!!!
Key verse: John 12:24 (KJV) “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.”
We want to bring forth much fruit! When I speak of being productive, I mean in the sense of producing fruit! So what must I do to be productive? We find an answer here in verse 24. We must die to self. We must become so completely empty of ourselves. The more we empty ourselves, the more we can be saturated in Him. I want God to completely occupy every room in this house, this temple. I want Him to be Lord over all of my life. I want to get to the place where His presence totally consumes me and transforms every area of my life. Lord I don’t want to leave any stone not overturned. I am asking the Lord to search every crevice, to search my heart that I will live a life of obedience!
Colossians 1:20-22 (KJV) “And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:”
Jesus is the Seed! He is the seed of woman, the seed of Abraham, of David, of Holy Spirit! When this seed died He started a multiplication of fruit that continues to grow as we speak. It is a mystery to some.
Colossians 1:26-27 (KJV) “Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:”
Before we asked Jesus in our heart we should have realized our emptiness without Him. When we received justification Holy Spirit came to live inside of us filling a void only God can fill.
Now that I have Christ in me, I have become a temple, a house of prayer, consecrated, and set a part. I have become holy, a vessel of honor. I am no longer my own and I surrender my will to Him. More than surrender but I have become a living sacrifice who follows the example of Christ and walks in obedience. As a seed dies and produce fruit, so did Jesus die and produced much fruit yielding a harvest. As we die to self we produce fruit, because we become empty of ourselves and alive in Jesus! We then began to produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit! Alleluia!
Part of dying to self is surrendering our whole heart to God continually! God wants us to do more than know the facts about Him. He wants us to live volitionally for Him! Surrender your will willingly!
“As for you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father [have personal knowledge of Him, be acquainted with, and understand Him; appreciate, heed, and cherish Him] and serve Him with a blameless heart and a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts and minds, and understands every intent and inclination of the thoughts. If you seek Him [inquiring for and of Him and requiring Him as your first and vital necessity] He will let you find Him; but if you abandon (turn away from) Him, He will reject you forever. Consider this carefully, for the LORD has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary. Be courageous and strong and do it.” (1Chronicles 28:9 AMP)
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.” (Psalm 139:23-24 NASB)
When we look at the life of Jesus it completely amazes me how He lived a surrendered life. He lived such a surrendered life, that He died on the cross for the world as our sacrifice. Jesus was obedience to death, and yet He lives!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16 KJV)
When we look at the life of Jesus we look at a life of obedience. We see a life that glorified God the Father. We see a life of worship. The bible tells us in John 4:24 (KJV) it says, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” This is true worship.
“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:” (Hebrews 12:14 KJV)
What am I talking about? I am speaking of being spiritually bankrupt. I am talking about being completely emptied to self, and being filled with the Spirit. I am talking about walking in the fear of the LORD. I am talking about a knowing that apart from God I can do nothing. I am talking about living a life of trust and dependency on God.
“I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds.” (Jeremiah 17:10)
Will you allow God to search your heart today and surrender every area of your life to Him fully?
“And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds.” (Revelation 2:23)
This is not a one-time prayer, this is a lifestyle which we must live to produce fruit. Good fruit and fruit that will last. God expose and close every breach of the enemy into our lives. Enlighten our understanding that we may continually walk in the victory! I declare that every place that the enemy has set up a stronghold in your mind be destroyed and renewed with your Truth. God we thank you for searching our heart and healing, delivering, and restoring us. In Jesus name!
Prophetic word: Obedience my sons and daughters is better than sacrifice. Offer up to me a pure heart with no other motive than to please me. Be about the Father’s business! What am I speaking in this hour? What am I doing in you in this hour? FOCUS! I am pouring out my glory in this season and in this hour to my people who are listening and spending time with me in my presence. They cannot skip over this time of intimacy with me. They must come to me, for it is I who establish and tear down. It is I who raise up a standard against the enemy. It is I who is the Author and Finisher of your faith. Tell the people to stay focus on what I am doing in them in this season and hour. For I desire to bring forth things in this hour that will establish generations. Oh taste and see that I am good. REST and FOCUS says the LORD! I am calling you out. Separate yourself although others may not understand. Separate yourself and focus on me my sons and daughters!
“…and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” (Romans 8:27 NASB)
Remember to smile God loves you!
