Day 64 of 100 Days: “Go beyond your present legal, religious condition” Read: Acts 10
Chuck Pierce 寫於 2011年11月29日 23:47
Meanwhile Peter, praying up on a housetop, got good and hungry. He was so hungry that in the midst of his hunger, God gave him a vision and then spoke to him. God told Peter that a man on whom He had been working for a little while, a gentile was coming to meet him. Peter might have had a few hesitations about meeting this man, who was known to his religious mind-set as unclean. This is one of our real issues. In the last season, the church came full circle, but today we’re trying to be so clean we are not completely sure God can bring our divine connections to us.
What God did in the vision was lower a sheet filled with things that Peter knew from Leviticus as forbidden and unclean—things he should not even touch. The Lord said to Peter, “Rise, Peter; kill and eat” (Acts 10:13). Peter answered, “Not so, Lord! For I have never eaten anything common or unclean” (v. 14).
After Peter thought about the vision a while, the Lord told Peter He was bringing people into his life in his last season who were unclean, and he would have to be with them if he was to do what God was calling him to do. Peter had to get past all his legalistic constraints and the way the Word was given to him in that other season, because those the Lord was bringing to him didn’t know anything about the Word or those constraints. If Peter couldn’t kill and eat the animals in the vision, he would judge those whom the Lord was bringing to him.
God wasn’t telling Peter to sin but was telling him he had to go beyond his sight and form of worship. The Lord could have said to Peter, “I’m going to bring some new people into your worship system who will change your whole way of worshiping in the future. Peter, if you don’t get past this vision, you won’t get into My new structure.”
Peter probably said, “Oh, my,” and thought about the vision within himself before he finally got it. He then had the dubious task of telling the followers of the risen Jesus about the new structure and explained how they also were going to have to shift. It wasn’t the Pharisees he was going to be dealing with but the other disciples. He was going to have to tell the other eleven, “You have to make a shift, or we will miss it.”
Some of you have been pressing to get it, but now you’re going to get it. Like Peter, we could say, “Lord, I’ve been through enough to know I don’t want to go back through it again.” Peter had even seen His Spirit fall like fire and the manifestation of the second word. With Peter, we must all say, “Lord, I’m willing to get past a lot of the narrow thinking I’ve had so I can bring others in. Lord, keep me focused; take me into a new place. Take me beyond. Take me into the place for this new season!”

Day 63 of 100 Days: “Go beyond your present connections” Read: Acts 10
Chuck Pierce 寫於 2011年11月28日 23:34
During Peter’s process, God was working on other people. He was working on a Gentile, Cornelius, and Gentiles weren’t even supposed to be worked on. But He’s God. Isaiah prophesied He would work on Gentiles, and hundreds of years later, He was doing it! He said to Cornelius, “You’re going to meet with Peter.” If Cornelius had protested, not wanting to meet with those crazy people, the Lord could have said, “But Cornelius, I’m working on you!” The Lord took Cornelius past his present connections because he went beyond all the issues along his path, and God could bring in a new connection. Peter had already been worked on, even by the devil, and was almost ready for this new Gentile connection. Peter was almost at that place called beyond.

Day 62 of 100 Days: “Go beyond your last place of repentance” Read: Acts 2, Isa. 55
Chuck Pierce 寫於 2011年11月27日 20:54
Between Jesus’s death and Pentecost, Peter finally repented. He finally turned over all of his thoughts. That’s what he didn’t do when he had the first revelation of who Jesus really was. You can come to a revelation of who Jesus is but never turn over your way of thinking. Peter turned over his way of thinking, and in the midst of it, he came out differently. He came out beyond his sifting, beyond his fear, beyond his unforgiveness, and beyond his thinking (Isa. 55). He came out beyond the last prophecy and into a place called new. Then God fell on him, and the Spirit came down. Peter multiplied three thousand times over and came into a place called abundance because his thinking process had shifted. He was no longer in the place he once was.

Day 61 of 100 Days: “Go beyond the last understanding of your call” Read: John 21
Chuck Pierce 寫於 2011年11月27日 0:21
This is the hardest one. The disciples went beyond, but then they went right back to what they used to do. Are you aware that’s a very dangerous place for all of us right now? We’re faced with the choice of going beyond where we’ve been or going back to the season from three and a half years ago. The disciples went back to fishing. They took up their business again. But Jesus met them in the business! Don’t be deceived or get into the religious lie that you can’t prosper if you are not doing what you’re supposed to be doing. He can prosper you even when you’re not doing what you’re supposed to be doing. He can allow you to prosper. He helped His disciples prosper in their business.
After they recognized Him and had eaten breakfast, Jesus talked with Peter. It could have gone something like this: “Peter, let’s talk about your call. Remember, I let Satan sift you. Do you feel like you’ve been sifted enough, or do you want to go to round two?” That’s what He was saying. Peter had one shot at moving beyond, but Jesus would have let him stayin the fishing business. He would also have let him be sifted again. When Jesus asked Peter, “Do you love Me?” Peter answered, “Yes, Lord.”
Jesus said, “But do you really love Me?” Peter answered, “Yes, Lord.” Jesus asked again, “But do you really love Me?” Peter answered, “Lord, only You know that.” Peter had answered every question in what he thought was the right way, and he’d done this before and still ended up in a mess. Jesus could have said to Peter, “If you do love Me, do you remember that prophecy I gave saying that you would be sifted like wheat and then you’d have to strengthen your brothers? You’re going to have to go back into your call. You’ll have to go beyond your last three and a half years and into a new type of call.”
You would think Peter would have fallen on his face and said, “Here I am, Lord!” But what he actually said was, “What’s going to happen with John?” Jesus answered him and basically said, “What is that to you? I’m asking you if you will go beyond.” Jesus was not talking about shirking responsibility but was asking this: “Will you keep following Me, even if they decide not to?”

Day 60 of 100 Days: Go beyond your last ability to fear and forgive Read: John 20
Chuck Pierce 寫於 2011年11月26日 2:41
In John 20, after Jesus died, those things He said began to manifest. On the first day of the week, the disciples were all together, because they thought all they had left was each other. There are times when all you have left to walk with are those whom God has given you. I want to end up with those He’s given me. Remember, He prophesied that. He said, “I won’t lose one of you who truly wants to follow after Me.”
The disciples locked the door because they believed that the same ones who killed Jesus would come and kill them (v. 19). They were filled with fear. The door was locked, they were assembled, and Jesus came and stood in the midst of them, saying,“Peace be with you.” He came through a closed, locked door. Are you aware that even if you lock yourself away He can still come in and say, “We can go beyond this place”? He can say to us, “You might think this is where you’re going to hide out, but I am going to come right on through, into that locked-up place you have sequestered yourself in, trying to become a nun or a monk. I will find you and bring you right out again, because I want you to go beyond. There is no need to try to isolate yourself in a season of seeing, because I’ll make you so miserable in that place that you’ll get sick of everything you’re seeing there. It will cause you to say, ‘I’ve got to get out of here.’ Your identity is not in that hidden place.”
He showed up in the room the disciples were hiding in and said, “I’m taking you beyond your last ability and where fear is gripping you.” Are you aware that the fear you’re engulfed in is related to what you’re capable of doing? Some of your fear is because you’re relying upon yourself to pull things off, and you can’t do it. He said to them, “Let Me bring you past that fear, and let Me commission you to go and forgive.”That was the only way they could move forward, and the same holds true for us. You won’t get to your beyond unless you can get past the signpost called forgiveness. You have to get past sifting, fear, and forgiveness, and then you can go beyond.

Day 59 of 100 days: “Go beyond your last trauma and death experience” Read: Luke 24

Be thankful for everything and everyone along your path. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

We have to see how He took a group beyond the prophecy of a previous season. These believers heard John prophesy in the last season but didn’t see the prophecy of the baptism of fire and were seeking after it. “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void” (Isa. 55:11). John seeded it, and the Lord would open it up at the right time. His Word does not return void.
When Jesus died, it threw them all off, because they couldn’t get the prophecies. This is a synopsis of what Jesus told some of them on the road to Emmaus: “If you could have just known the Scriptures, you could have gotten this, but you couldn’t see beyond the trauma and what you expected to happen.”
This is one reason that I admire my wife so much. When she was still barren, the Lord gave her a promise that she would have twins. She had twins, and after they died she said, “I’ll go beyond this. I don’t know how I’ll go beyond, but I’ll go beyond it.”
I asked her, “Does this mean we’ll have twins again?” She answered, “No, it’s a new season. But I will see beyond into a new season where what that word truly means has manifested.” That’s what the men on the road to Emmaus couldn’t do. He’ll take you beyond your last trauma and death experience and open your eyes into a realm that you couldn’t see or understand from the old place you were in.
That’s also what happened to my friend Marty Cassady in the tent on our land for the Head of the Year gathering in 2009. The Lord reached down into the tent and touched her because she had been surrounded by death for fifteen years. He took her beyond all that.
He says to us, “I can put you into a place called abundance, into a place called life, where you’re seeing into a realm you’ve never seen before. Let Me take you past the death of that child . . . Let Me take you past the loss in that relationship . . . Let Me take you past the loss of that business . . . Let Me take you past the loss that you’ve experienced and take you into a new realm.”

Day 58 of 100 Days: “Go beyond your understanding of resurrection and the last glory demonstration you’ve seen” Read: John 11
Chuck Pierce 寫於 2011年11月23日 22:22
Let’s go back to Martha again. She never got past her distractions to get it, even though He told her to. Now, her house (which she was responsible for) had a death in it, and Jesus waited until there was no longer any hope in this house. In other words, He waited until Lazarus was good and dead.
Four days into it, Lazarus had been buried. He was no longer in the house but was stinking, shut up in the grave. When Jesus came, Martha went to him and accused, “If You had been here, this wouldn’t have happened.” We are always doing this to the Lord, because we continue to look at Him based upon where He has been rather than based upon where He’s taking us. Jesus could have said, “Martha, you should have gotten this resurrection thing by now. I love you, your sister, and your brother, and I’ve been visiting your home for quite a while, but you don’t get resurrection.” But when Jesus said, “Your brother will rise again,” Martha responded, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
Then Jesus declared, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live” (John 11:25). In other words, He could have said,“Martha, listen to Me. Resurrection power is in your midst today. You understand resurrection for the future, but you don’t get it for today, and I am grieved over it.”
Mary came to Jesus and said, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died” (v. 21). Here’s the difference between Martha and Mary’s statements: Mary fell at His feet and spoke, instead of accusingly yelling at Him on the path. In a nutshell, that’s the true difference between Martha and Mary. They each had a distinct personality, and He loved each of the sisters, but one of them knew how to touch Him. And because she knew how to touch Him, He took them both beyond. I think that’s the place we’re going. Do we really know how to touch Him so we can see Him in a whole new perspective? You know the rest of the story. Mary touched His heart. He removed the rock, the death, the grave clothes, the decay, and a whole new order came. They all saw it. That’s the place I hear the Lord asking us if we will go to.
