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.
On December 21st the Lord began whispering the following:
In 2019 I will rule with wisdom and power. I will raise my mighty hand to those that doubted my existence. I will crush the plans of the enemy. I will bring down the strongholds of those that come against my kingdom. Mighty is the Lord God Almighty who came through a baby in a manger to save the world from death and destruction.
Romans 9:10-21 (He will have mercy on whom He chooses. God’s purpose will prevail!) Verse 17 I raised you up so 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 has 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 whom 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 His 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 that in that very place where it was said to them, You are not my people, they will be called 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 on earth with speed and finality. It is just as Isaiah said previously: “Unless the Lord Almighty had left us descendants, we would have become like Sodom and Gomorrah.
