Standing in Full Measure
This is the ultimate realm of God’s power and love—the place where all phases of ministry come together and operate at their fullest capacity.

God has been dealing with me about walking in the fullness of the gifts of the Spirit. In my estimation, the best I have seen of spiritual gifts in operation has fallen short of what God wants to do.

I have been very blessed to see great and miraculous happenings, both in church congregations and out in the streets. I have seen the power of God in operation, but I have never yet walked away satisfied that God did everything He wanted to do. The time is coming and now is at hand for the fullness of the gifts of the Spirit to operate, for God to do what He has been wanting to do all these years. Jesus said, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father” (John 14:12). The things I am going to share with you now are the things that will put us in a position to walk in that fullness of greater works.

We haven’t reached that place yet, but we are headed that way now. Glory to God! We have finally come to the place where many of us are joining together and worshiping God in unity, “Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ” (Eph. 4:13). That is one of the most important steps that has to happen.
(Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
(Eph. 4:9-12)
God said this to me: “The time is coming and even now is, for people to walk in the fullness of their callings.” No, the day of the apostle is not over. The day of the prophet is not over. The evangelist and the pastor are not the only two ministries left in operation. The day is coming soon when we will see people walk in apostolic and prophetic power in full measure. We will see people walk in the office of evangelist in such a way that it will shake and startle the world.

First Corinthians 12:28 refers to other ministries that have been set in the Body of Christ; “And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.”

Some people are called primarily to one office of ministry, such as miracles or gifts of healings. There are offices where people are called just to do miracles. There are people set in the Church to do nothing but minister healing to the congregation. Kathryn Kuhlman walked in that ministry. She preached to people who didn’t know much about The WORD. God called her to minister in the gifts of healings; and thank God, she accepted it!

There is an office of governments and an office of helps. The office of helps is the most underdeveloped ministry in the Body of Christ today. It is a vital ministry, just as real and necessary as the office of pastor. God is raising up men and women in these last days to walk in the fullness of helps and governments. He said to me, “I will bless them for their commitment to see My covenant established in the earth. They will be there watching as the dead are raised and the blind see and the lame walk!” Praise God! Think about it—you and I seeing ministries operate in full measure.

The New Breed
Our job is to walk in love toward one another and walk in this magnificent realm of the miraculous.
Speaking the truth in love, [we] may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: from whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
(Eph. 4:15-16)
In the Greek text, the word edify means “to charge,” as you would “charge” a battery. As we edify one another in love, we pump one another full of power! By speaking the truth in love to each other, we grow up into Him in all things and walk the earth in full stature as believers continually building each other up with The WORD.

Jesus is not coming back for a weak, sickly Church that has been defeated and beaten down by Satan. No, praise God, we are going out of here in a blaze of glory!

You can walk in the realm of the miraculous, using the authority of God; but you will never do it until you put God’s WORD first place in your life and walk in love. That is the realm of the miraculous!

In Deuteronomy 28, The WORD says, “And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments [now there is only one to observe and do] which I command thee this day…all these blessings shall come upon thee and overtake thee…” (verses 1-14). Then you will be walking by faith on the highest level there is. God’s miraculous power will operate in you and you will see great and mighty things take place.

You will be counted among “the new breed” that shall go forth to the world. You shall no longer walk as other gentiles walk in the vanity of their minds; but you shall walk in love even as Jesus walked—men and women knowing their full rights and privileges in Christ Jesus. You shall rise up, proclaiming the mighty Name of Jesus, and prepare the way of The LORD’s coming!
