Learning to Receive from God

Overview
A tremendous paradigm change occurs as we move into the current manifestation of the kingdom of God. It is a paradigm change from passivity to aggressiveness. In this higher level of the kingdom, we learn to take from God what He has provided instead of passively waiting for Him to move. Aggressive faith is the key to walking in Christ's completed provision for us. Exercising the faith required for this new day is contingent upon abiding in the correct realm. If we abide in the time realm, our capacity to receive from God is limited. As we learn to abide in the eternal realm of spirit, all doors open for us. God is a "now" God. We cannot receive from Him if we relate to Him historically. Putting off into the future something God will do closes the door from receiving now. No time or distance exists in God's world, the spirit realm. All things have been provided for us in Christ. We are to learn how to take those provisions right now. Jesus said, "The kingdom of God suffers violence, and violent men take it by force." What does that mean? It is not a call to physical violence but rather a call to throw off the passivity of religion and take from God what He has given. Learning to receive from God is an aggressive action in our spirits.
Description
A tremendous paradigm change occurs as we move into the current manifestation of the kingdom of God. It is a paradigm change from passivity to aggressiveness. In this higher level of the kingdom, we learn to take from God what He has provided instead of passively waiting for Him to move. Aggressive faith is the key to walking in Christ's completed provision for us. Exercising the faith required for this new day is contingent upon abiding in the correct realm. If we abide in the time realm, our capacity to receive from God is limited. As we learn to abide in the eternal realm of spirit, all doors open for us. God is a "now" God. We cannot receive from Him if we relate to Him historically. Putting off into the future something God will do closes the door from receiving now. No time or distance exists in God's world, the spirit realm. All things have been provided for us in Christ. We are to learn how to take those provisions right now. Jesus said, "The kingdom of God suffers violence, and violent men take it by force." What does that mean? It is not a call to physical violence but rather a call to throw off the passivity of religion and take from God what He has given. Learning to receive from God is an aggressive action in our spirits. Jesus told parables related to our persistence to receive from God. The parable of the friend who comes at midnight and the parable of the unjust judge demonstrate God's delight in His people as they aggressively seek Him. God insists upon our persistence of faith because it creates in us a wholeheartedness for Him. James tells us, "Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you." The Lord is at our initiative. That is revolutionary. Religion teaches to wait passively and reverently. But our Father delights in the aggressiveness of sons.
About the author
Roger Dixon is an author endeavoring to reach as many as are hungry for a deeper walk with God. A new day of the kingdom of God is opening. "Do not call to mind the former things, Or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert." Roger gave his life to Jesus Chris in 1972, while serving in the Marine Corps in Iwakuni, Japan. Upon discharge in 1973, he was led to a fellowship in Detroit, Michigan. He spent ten years in Michigan learning and growing in the word of God. Roger was led back to his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia in 1984, where the dealings of God opened a new era in his life. Many tribulations and trials followed the move back to Georgia, but God was always setting before him the vision of a new day opening. Today, the heavens are opening beyond imagination. Roger is eager to share all that God has revealed to him. ". . . that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe." Roger lives in Hiddenite, North Carolina with his wife Jennifer and their three cats.
