Genesis 1:1-2

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”


All of the plants and trees that God had in His mind before the world was created lay in a dormant state of pure potential when the earth was just a big hunk of material without form and void. There were no beautiful flowers budding. There wasn’t even a green plant popping through the rock. The earth was simply without form or substance. All the seeds were there, but they were just being waiting to be brought into fruition.


What the earth needed was the Holy Spirit, the presence of God, to “brood over it” and move over every inch of it as the prophet said. As soon as the presence of God began to move over the face of the deep waters, light burst forth, plants began to bud, and living things were created. It took the Holy Spirit brooding over the earth to pull out the potential that lay inside the seeds.


In order for the Bride to receive her translation, she must also lay in the presence of the Holy Spirit to mature and ripen as a plant does in the sun. Only God’s presence brooding over the eternal seed that dwells in each Believer, will cause the attributes of God to be brought forth.


Make sure that you become aware of the presence of God in your life. Just lay in the presence of the Holy Spirit. Let Him come down and brood over you and let Him do the work. Just lay in His presence.

89 So, when you watch nature, now we see where every age, and directly designed it out that we’re in the last age. The shuck has pulled away. And we’ve had fifteen years, nearly twenty now, years, of the Message sweeping across from nation to nation, and this morning hooked-up across this nation, see, and no organization. It can’t organize. There has nothing ever been like it, or will be hereafter. See?
The—the thing that’s the matter with the Message today, is, those who obtain It in their hearts must lay in the Presence of the Son, to get ripened. See? You can pick up the Message, and then let the Son bake all the greenness out of you, see, making matured Christians. See what I mean? God is coming soon, to receive His Church, and we must have that type of Christians for Him to receive. The—the wheat has got to get ripe. All right.
