There is an urgency for those in the body of Christ to listen, obey, and let's move.

I was recently inspired from the great book of Acts the 5th chapter, where Paul begins to write about the mighty signs and wonders that were performed among the people. I have good news today, God is not a respecter of persons and the reason I know this is because in Mark 16:17-18 (NIV) it quotes that:
And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.
Are you a believer? If so, this promise is to all those that believe in Christ. However, this is by no means, a license to begin picking up serpents or to drink poison, but to show the ability of the power of God if a person was accidently poisoned, or perhaps bitten by a snake. Did you know that you possess the ability within you to defy natural circumstances as in Acts 28:3-6 (NIV)?
Paul gathered a pile of brushwood and, as he put it on the fire, a viper, driven out by the heat, fastened itself on his hand. 4 When the islanders saw the snake hanging from his hand, they said to each other, "This man must be a murderer; for though he escaped from the sea, the goddess Justice has not allowed him to live." 5 But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects. 6 The people expected him to swell up or suddenly fall dead; but after waiting a long time and seeing nothing unusual happen to him, they changed their minds and said he was a god.
We are living in a time where God is beginning to use those in the body of Christ that have made themselves available to Him, and not just the pastor, teacher, prophet, evangelist, or apostle. The is the "season of discovery", and several of you will begin to discover new giftings and talents that you didn't even know that you possessed as God draws you closer to His will and purpose for your life.
We must understand that the bible is not just another wonderful book that was written by great men but it was God breathed & inspired with the breath and spirit of God. This means that the words actually have the ability to come alive in your life, evade your very territory or situation and bring about change. It has the ability to resurrect a situation that appears to be dead or hopeless, although it has plagued you for years. It also has the ability to change the doctor's report and leave them baffled.
We are now living in a season where the word of the Lord is that "there is an urgency in the realm of the spirit and the anointing on your life is about to be demanded upon". Understand that he is RIGHT NOW raising up the body of Christ with great power in their arms to perform great and mighty exploits and that "the masses are coming" as they did in the book of Acts 5:14-16.
14 Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number. 15 As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter's shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by. 16 Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by impure spirits, and all of them were healed.
God is ready to do this RIGHT NOW! The masses were brought out into the streets before Peter to be healed. What I'm saying is, that God is about to begin to surround you in the everyday places (work, home, the park, mall, grocery stores, etc) with people with various types of problems that are seeking for answers, because life and doctors having given up on them as the woman with the issue of blood.
I have family members and friends right now that are faced with the prognoses of man and their limited ability. We all have people around us with children with special needs, people diagnosed with cancer, lupus, those in ICU, or women simply trying to become pregnant. I am challenging each one of you to make yourself available to him and he will begin to use you in ways that you have read about in the bible and yet to see in your own life.
Don't you dare just read this article and say it's just hype, or a good word, but take it & hold on to it for yourself.
I dare you to believe that God also wants to use you. So avail yourself to Him! Move hastily when He instructs you to! Move promptly when an idea is constantly before you! It's time to move NOW!
"There is an urgency in the realm of the spirit and the anointing that is on your life is about to be demanded upon!"
