Your Foundation Must be in Jesus Christ, and That Starts with Abiding in Him!
When you build a home, a foundation must always be put down first. If you don’t build a good foundation it doesn’t matter how nice of a home, you build you will have many issues with the worst issue being that your home will fall! God has given us a foundation which is Jesus Christ, and we should build everything in our lives on that foundation so that we can stand strong!
Greg shares a prophetic dream, and in that dream, he was shown an odd-shaped building somewhat like a horseshoe. He noticed that there was a very small foundation to hold up each point of such a huge weirdly shaped building. Then there was a shaking that took place, and the building started to fall. As Greg sought the Lord to know the meaning of this dream God showed him the Gateway Arch in Missouri. He feels that the dream was the Gateway Arch falling and that there is a shaking happening in America where everything that does not have a good foundation in Jesus will fall.
“For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building. According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it. For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 3:9-11 ESV
There is no other foundation other than Jesus Christ. God is the Creator of the Universe! God and His Son created everything and for them and through them! Many wrong narratives have been taught about God and His Son that has caused people to put God in a box, but He is not in a box He is everywhere! God is holding all of Creation together.
Right now, many things are being shaken, and it is revealing what foundation was built upon. Only those that have built their foundation on Jesus Christ will stand through the shaking! God is revealing things that we may not have been able to see before and what remains is what God wants to remain.
“Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw— each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire.” 1 Corinthians 3:12-15 ESV
We are in a season where things will be going through the fire. It could be your relationship, your church, your job; anything and everything can be shaken and tested by fire in this time. Be encouraged to go back and remember your first love with Jesus and stay steady in your personal abiding relationship with Him or start that abiding relationship today!
Chuck Pierce, with Glory of Zion Ministries, shared a prophetic word recently that there is a shaking happening and that a veil is between us and our answered prayers. And that if we knew what was on the other side of this shaking we would hold on. Quite often in a time of shaking people decide to make huge decisions like moving or changing jobs etc., but it is a time for you to be careful. You need to hold on and watch and wait to see what the Lord is doing and what will remain after the shaking. God has an amazing plan as God has shown many great things that will happen in the future!
Greg has seen great future things that will take place. He has seen a great harvest of souls! He has seen stadiums filled with the glory of God and filled with men and their sons. If you are a man be encouraged right now, despite all that has come against you as a man, you are significant now and in the next move of God! You must move in your place as a man and father with other men and realize that because you are so significant that all darkness has come against you and is working to remove you from society, but you are needed! Your family needs you! Your Church needs you! Men must wake up and walk in their role in America so that we can see the next move of God.
How can you make it through the fire and the shaking? God is shaking things to get rid of things that are not of Him so that you can make it into the new prophetic season. Your foundation must only be in Jesus Christ! Jesus even talked about the traditions of man, which would be a foundation other than Jesus.
“He said to them, “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition. For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’ But you say, ‘If a man says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is Corban”—’ (that is, a gift to God), then you no longer let him do anything for his father or his mother, making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do.” Mark 7:9-13 NKJV
Jesus is saying that they rejected what God said and are doing what they want to do. You can start building things on tradition instead of on Jesus! It is about a personal relationship with Him! He wants to walk with us in life, which started in the Garden of Eden and the death and resurrection of Jesus brought that back to us! How do you have this type of intimate relationship with Jesus? First you must make Jesus the Lord of your life and if you have not done that you can read our stories HERE at Meet My Father and make that decision today!
Next, you must abide and spend time with Jesus every day. He wants to talk to you, and if you want to be strong in this shaking you need to be established in your time with Jesus. You can get your free plan on how you can abide HERE today! Jesus said, apart from abiding in Him you can do nothing as He said in John 15. This is how you build a firm foundation on Jesus Christ! What are your thoughts on abiding with Jesus? Do you have your foundation on Jesus? We want to hear from you! Write to us at [email protected] or in the VFNKB Community HERE.
