THE MOVE OF GOD....

The move of the Spirit cannot be stopped by the schemes of men

"And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: but if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God."- Acts 5:38

This was Gamaliel advice to the high priest in the early days of the church. When the power came upon the church it suddenly exploded upon the world. The once timid Church became the bold church, spreading like wildfire and taking over every nook and cranny of the land. Signs and wonders, undeniable miracles were been wrought that the authorities became restless and wanted to stop this by all schemes possible!

And here Gamaliel steps in. Reminding them of how similar movements orchestrated by the will and effort of men failed in times past.

Acts 5:34-38, ‘When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them.  34 Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;  35 And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men.   36 For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody;  to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves:  who was slain;  and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought.   37 After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him:  he also perished;  and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed.   38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone:  for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: 39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.’  

Every move of God powered by the spirit of God cannot be stopped by the schemes of men!

 

In other words, he was telling the high priest, whatever God has not ordained he would not sustain. But if God ordains it he will sustain it! Stopping such a venture is tantamount to fighting God, he advised! And who is it that ever stands up to God and comes out alive? For if God be for us who can be against us? No one!

As it turned out, this move could not be stopped by anyone. When the Apostles appeared somewhere, they were labeled as the men, “who turned the world upside down"!

Every move of God powered by the spirit of God cannot be stopped by the schemes of men!

When you are on course with God you cannot be curse by men!

The Spirit of God fell in Acts 2 and so began the move of God! Every move of God has that pattern, the rain of the Spirit falls first and the power of God is released, the heart of men are stirred towards God in revival and then a mighty move is born!

We are in that day when God will pour out His power again upon the church. We are in the latter part of the latter part of the latter days and there shall be an OUTPOURING of God's power again over his church. This coming move will be an INVASION of the world with the power of God! And this move will further establish the authority of the church and of God's kingdom!

Through you, God will invade the world. Invade the business sphere, politics, entertainment, and every sphere of human endeavor. Through you, he will upturn the old order and establish a new one through his power. You are about to happen to your world. And do not fear, or be fearful, you cannot be stopped!
