On December 21st the Lord began whispering the following:
1 Corinthians 2:1–9&10 When I came to you brothers, I did not come with the eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I came to you in weakness and fear, and with much trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power. We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age, who are coming to nothing. Now we speak of God’s secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. However as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him.” but God has revealed it to us by HIS Spirit.
In 2019 I will rule with wisdom and power says the Lord. I will raise my mighty hand to those that doubted my existence. I will crush the hands and plans of the enemy. I will bring down the strongholds of those that come against the Kingdom.
Who parted the waters of the Red Sea? It was I says the Lord. It was I that rode on a great white horse across the universe when you couldn’t see. Be still and know that I am God. I will set the world on fire. A fire of liquid love that will cover the universe. A fire that will consume and expose every hidden thing. Whatever has been whispered in the dark room will be shouted from the mountain top. For those that do not walk my way will be exposed in the light of day. Be still and know that I am God. The God that loved the world so much that He sent His only Son to do what only He could have done; to save a dying world.
Romans 9:10-29 Not only that, but Rebekah’s children had one and the same father, our father Isaac. Yet before the twins were born or had done anything good or bad – in order that God’s purpose in election might stand: not by works but by Him who calls – she was told, “The older will serve the younger.”Just as it is written: Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated. What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all! For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” It does not depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy. For scriptures says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth. Therefore God has mercy on whom He wants to have mercy, and He hardens whom He wants to harden. One of you will say to me:?”Then why does God still blame us? For who resists His will?” But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to Him who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’ ” Does not the potter have the right to make out the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use? What if God, choosing to show His wrath and make His power known, bore with great patience the objects of His wrath–prepared for destruction? What if He did this to make the riches of glory known to the objects of His mercy, whom He prepared in advance for glory–even us, whom He also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles. As He says in Hosea: I will call them my people who are not my people; and I will call her ‘my loved one’ who is not my loved one.” and, It will happen in that very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ they will be called the sons of the living God.” Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the Israelites be like the sand by the sea, only the remnant will be saved. For the Lord will carry out His sentence with finality. It is just as Isaiah said previously: “Unless the Lord Almighty has left us descendants, we would have become Sodom, we would have been like Gomorrah.”
Although this passage addresses Israel’s unbelief, it also addresses the Lord’s desire in our need to have faith, not based on our own efforts or works, but His grace. The Lord, our Creator gives mercy to all who believe in Him. I believe the Lord has shown me that the finality spoken of here relates to just how quickly the Jewish people will recognize Jesus as their Messiah.
Luke 20:22 Is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not? … Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.
Deuteronomy 4:5-6 See I have taught you decrees and laws as the Lord my God commanded me so that you may follow them in the land you are entering to take possession of it. Observe them carefully, for this will show your wisdom and understanding to the nations, who will hear about these decrees and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
The Father makes it clear that we are to respect the law of the land, government leaders (no matter what our political beliefs are) and what is right in His Word. I believe He is exposing the unjust and those turning their back on what is right or lawful for their own personal gain. He wants us to be an example to the nations.
James 4:5-9&10 Or do you think Scripture says without reason that the Spirit He causes to live in us envies intensely? But He gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Come near to God and He will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will lift you up.
The Lord has shown me that we need to humble ourselves before Him and not only ask for forgiveness but also purify ourselves of anything that holds us back or gives the enemy an open door. There will be soul prosperity through loosing things of the enemy and binding the things of the Lord. He said as your soul prospers so will you (see 3 John 1:2). We need to prepare ourselves for His glory! Change begins within us!
2 Corinthians 9:10 Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.
I believe with our extended hand towards the Lord, He will bless and provide provision for us to walk out what He has planned for us. We need to choose to be a part of this great move of God. Make no mistake this choice is not about our salvation if we have already received Him, it is about Him indwelling within us to receive our rights as joint heirs or Sonship. In Him we move and have our being. He is coming for a habitation! Once we recognize our true authority in Christ and become like Him, we will walk in His greater glory! There is nothing we can’t do! He said we will do even greater things because I go to sit at my Fathers right hand (see John 14:12) The latter glory is greater than the former (See Haggai 2:9).
Luke 10:9-12 Heal the sick who are there and tell them. “The Kingdom of God is near you. But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into the streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your own town that sticks to our feet we wipe off against you.” Yet be sure of this: The Kingdom of God is near. I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town.
We need to put action to the commission we will have received by walking in our calling and helping to bring in the harvest of souls. I believe we have to stay close to the Father’s heart and walk out our gifting with humility. We need to seek Him and His will rather than use the power to heal, raise the dead, etc. without His direction. Because the Lord will pour out His Spirit on all flesh, there will be many move in the flesh and not the Spirit (See Matthew 7:22).
I Corinthians 9:10 Surely He says this for us, doesn’t He? Yes this was written for us, because when the plowman plows and the thresher threshes, they ought to do so in the hopes of sharing in the harvest.
Romans 10:20 And Isaiah boldly says, “I was found by those who did not seek me; I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me.”
