The Passion Translation--I Hear His Whisper..."i Am The Finisher"

    I very much enjoy the semi-weekly words of encouragement sent by Brian Simmons, translator of the Passion Translation.  This most recent one seemed to speak directly to me--and to others I know!

The semi-weekly e-mail from The Passion Translation.

On the cross Jesus said "It is finished, my bride!" (John 19:30 TPT), He finished the work of our salvation for His bride. Although the completed work of salvation was finished on the cross, he continues to work through his church today to extend God’s kingdom realm on the earth and glorify the Father through us. He continues to work in us to accomplish all that his cross and resurrection have purchased for us, his bride. We truly can have confidence from what Jesus has already done and promised that He is the Finisher.

"I am the Finisher!"

Today you stand at the threshold of a new beginning. All that is around you will change and all that I have planted within you will now grow and bear fruit. For I have great things in store for you, things no one has ever proclaimed to you. Many speak of the rain that will soon fall, but I say, it will be a DOWNPOUR on you! Many speak of the fire, but they have never been consumed. But with you, My fire will rage and not be contained by the structures and theories of men.

There are many who wish for a new day, but you will be lifted suddenly into a season beyond your imagination or your dreams. For it will be MY dream that will be fulfilled in your life. Many scoffers will be swept into My presence and become believers in one day. Many doubters of My power will leave their limitations and pursue ME as never before. The time of the great OUTPOURING upon the nations is near. It will be a day of repentance and a day of gathering.

Those who ignore My truth will be ignored. Those who refuse to gather themselves together will be scattered even further. For I will be worshipped in SPIRIT and in TRUTH. So stand firm in Me until I have become your confidence. Set your eyes upon Me and don't be worried about your future and your calling, for I am the God who begins and completes, the Alpha and the Omega. You have seen many times as the Beginning, now you will see me as the Finisher!

Hebrews 12:2 The Passion Translation

"We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was filled with the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!"

Philippians 1:6 The Passion Translation

I pray with great faith for you, because I’m fully convinced that
the One who began this glorious expression of grace in you will
faithfully continue the process of maturing you through your
union with him and will complete it at the unveiling of our Lord
Jesus Christ!

List some things that you believe God has begun in your life and that you look forward to Him finishing. Write a prayer asking Him to show you His dream for your life.
