The Mystery Of One Desire – God’s Heart & Mind For One Desire: Sermon By Rev. Richard Muendo
The 7th year makes reference to spiritual perfection, to new worship and is the focus for One Desire. Meaning One Desire is to grow into the stature of its divine fulfillment.
One Desire is a cultural construct designed with the innate grace to impart the grace for revelation of Kingdom truths imprinted through worship and replicated to the world at large.
The Lord is looking for oneness in the faith and it includes relating with other members of the Body of Christ well. This will enable One Desire to grow like the early church.
All the commandments which I command you this day you shall be watchful to do, that you may live and multiply and go in and possess the land which the Lord swore to give to your fathers. And you shall [earnestly] remember all the way which the Lord your God led you these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and to prove you, to know what was in your [mind and] heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. And He humbled you and allowed you to hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you recognize and personally know that man does not live by bread only, but man lives by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord.Deuteronomy 8:1-3 (AMPC)
Imprinting the essence of Christ means living according to the wisdom of God and it has a multiplying grace to it. There is a commissioning to multiply the things that the Lord has called us to.
We need to be careful and watchful to do that which the Lord has called to do.
We require boldness to get access to that which the Lord has called us to possess.
We cannot inherit what we do not have authority over. We shall be tested and humbled to know what is in our hearts and minds before we access our inheritance.
God allows us to be in a place in our personal altars where we hunger so that we receive the manna of God. We are to be careful not to mishandle this state of hunger.
There is a cultural shift that is needed as we migrate into our inheritance. Our expectations are to be shaped in the context of His promises.
God did not select Abraham on the basis of his talent or economic prosperity but on the basis of faith and his capacity to teach his household the ways of God. He was able to replicate the revelation he received from God. The 318 men who fought the five kings were a fruit of this.
The law given to Moses was a diagnostic tool that was to show man how desolate and fallen he was.
A kingdom is established on the strength of its legacy derived from the kingdom’s culture and might of a people’s moral backbone, not its events. Dominion is dependent on the replication of this culture.
God looks for individuals that are able to carry the seed of His word – His imprint.
The individual is then blessed of the Lord to carry the imprint to fruition. Abraham was blessed immensely. Not just numerically, but also in the conviction of the heart.
Blessing is the impartation of capacity for the fulfillment of kingdom purpose.
The blessing, if not handled carefully, has a way of causing man to think that he is blessed rather than the imprint – the nature of Christ in him being blessed. We are vessels to carry the nature of God.
God does not increase outside His nature. Anything that is anti-God will be removed in the context of the wilderness.
Multiplication is cultural and is a factor of the innate nature in man.
The Cross sets you up for a dimension of Kingdom purpose. The Cross is accessed in one’s prayer closet and it involves the intrusive work of the Holy Spirit to raise the spirit man into purpose.
Pursuit of purpose leads to death of self.
The breath of God is that which God gave every living man that causes one to understand the word of God. The word of God is the food for the spirit man. It is the heart and mind of God per time per season.
The intent of God is to strengthen the moral backbone of a people through the wilderness season, to give them capacity to walk in a defined culture.
Culture is the summation of how a people continually interact with established principles. It is also accessed through the transaction they access in the second heaven or spiritual realms. These transactions are a function of worship.
Manna redefined the perspective of Israel that had freshly left Egypt – they finally saw God as provider. This was a generational shift. This shift was also followed by a second shift as they entered Canaan; a shift in sight/vision/perception (how they looked at things).
Shortsightedness causes individuals to work individually instead of participating in the Body and getting a full revelation of Christ as opposed to being limited to the part revelation we have individually.
If then you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.Colossians 3:1-2 (AMPC)
Worship creates the prophetic atmosphere that causes one to have elevated sight into the eternal realm where truth and principles are accessed for the creation of a kingdom culture.
A prayer altar serves the function of ventilating the process of the creation of a Kingdom culture.
Man lives not by bread alone but by every breath of purpose that proceeds from the power of God’s being.
The word of God is the breath of purpose that proceeds from the power of His Being. This is what causes everything to be sustained.
The breath of God’s purpose is His nature.
