And the Word (Christ) became flesh, and dwelt among us
This past year was really a time of testing to see how much of the Word has become manifest in our lives
You shall live each and every day in all His ways
24 April marked 16 years since Touch The Nations (TTN) Ministries was established in 2005. During these years, we received a considerable amount of doctrine. We are grateful to God that He has kept us these many years and built substantial Word into our lives. We also believe that you are still living out all the principles that you have been taught. This past year was really a time of testing to validate whether the Word that we received over the years is, indeed, manifesting in our lives. If you only listen to and read the Word, bear in mind that the Bible says that the letter killeth, but the Spirit gives life. We believe that the Spirit in you has given life to this Word, the Word is surely active in your life, and that you truly are encountering that the Word is still powerful to enable us to live a victorious life.
This has been a time of testing to see how much of the Word has become incarnated in and through our lives. We must still know this today; it’s very important that the Word of God must become flesh. We cannot merely listen to or hear the Word. We have to be doers of the Word, as the Bible says. It’s in the outworking of the Word in our life that we see the unfolding of Christ on the inside of us and how God works on our behalf to do whatever is necessary for us to fulfil our purpose and destiny in life.
Deuteronomy 5:33 (AMP)
You shall walk [that is, live each and every day] in all the ways which the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long in the land which you will possess.
There are still places that God wants us to possess. As God said to Moses, every place, your foot shall tread, I have given it to you. I know there are still territories in the Spirit and the natural that we have to acquire and conquer for the Kingdom’s sake. I believe our purpose is not yet accomplished. I really believe there’s a next phase coming, as we have already received a prophetic word from different prophets during lockdown through whom God spoke to us. God is going to take us to another dimension. There are other levels that God wants us to break into, focusing more on relationships. I believe that we still have a lot to do. I believe that for you too, because you form part of us. There is much more that we have to do for the Lord. That’s why, I believe, there is a stirring in our hearts. In our hearts, there is an anticipation, waiting patiently for us to once again get activated into that which God has called us.
We are praying for you; please pray for us constantly, knowing that we are family. Thank you for your faithfulness in your giving, faithfulness in your messages and prayers and faithfulness in being there for one another. I know that this time has also strengthened your family bonds. May God strengthen us as a spiritual family even more during this time. We are really longing and looking forward to once again gather together as the Body of Christ, to see each one of your beautiful faces, to give you a hug and just to tell you that we truly, truly love you.
We are ready to do whatever God wants us to do in the timing of the Lord. I still believe we should be prudent as the Body of Christ, meaning we should operate in the wisdom of the Lord, explicitly knowing precisely what to do and when to do it. Sometimes it feels like this lockdown is not ending, but God knows exactly what He’s doing. That’s why we are not fearful. We are at a place of peace. We know, at the right time, the Lord will unlock the doors and open up avenues again for us to be able to come together as a family.
May God inspire you by His Holy Spirit and His Word. May you be rejuvenated by the Spirit of God. May you be infused with power from on high to be able to fulfil all of God’s desire for your life. We love you, and we bless you. I speak peace over every household and over every life in Jesus’ name. Amen – Dr. Ben & Sonja Kleynhans.
