David Lebo: "Are You Ready to Cross Over?"

David Lebo
Dec 31, 2017

Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:

I really enjoyed reading this word by David which he shares about the Israelites having to make the decision to "cross over" into their Promised Land...a land flowing with milk and honey. BUT...they had to make the choice to cross over...knowing there were giants in the Promised Land God wanted to give them!

David Lebo poses an important question to us in this excerpt:

I don't know about you, but I want all that God has for me. I want to go in and possess the land – a land flowing with milk and honey, with springs, fountains and brooks, and bread without scarcity – I want all of it. So I'm going in and entering the land. Will you go too and possess your land?

I sure want ALL God has for me and my family...and I bet you do too!

On this last day of 2017, let's leave the past behind and move forward. It is wholeheartedly a new day, in a new chapter, for the Body of Christ to CROSS OVER...together! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

The Lord began to speak to me concerning moving into 2018:

"Church of the living God: Are you living on the east side or are you ready to cross over the Jordan River and live on the west side? Are you ready to enter a land with fountains, springs and brooks, with wheat, barley, vines and fig trees, a land of olive oil and honey, a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing?"

The description of the Promised Land in Deuteronomy 8:7 tells us about a place flowing with milk and honey; a place that you will lack absolutely nothing. Sounds like a place that I would like to live in! It is "Promised Land Living" at its best!

"We need to go for God's best and live on the "West Side"!"

It is also "Secret Place Living" at its best. The closer you get to God, the greater the fulfillment of the Word of God is in your life. Don't settle for anything less than one hundred percent fulfillment of the Word of God in your life. Don't settle for less!

Take Possession

In the days of Moses, as they were about to enter into the Promised Land, they sent a team of twelve spies to scout out the land that the Lord, God, had promised them. Only two spies, Joshua and Caleb, came back with a good report. All the other ones, the other ten, came back with a bad report. And in that bad report, they described people that were bigger and stronger than they were, and a land that devours those that live in it. "We're like grasshoppers compared to them," they said.

But then there were two: Joshua and Caleb. "Caleb silenced all the people and said, 'We should go up and take possession of the land for we can certainly do it'" (Numbers 13:30). Joshua and Caleb spoke words of faith, hope, and promise. Their reward for their good report was that they could enter the land that they had scouted out. The rest, all those twenty years of age and older, wouldn't make it out of the desert because of their doubt and unbelief, and because of believing the bad report. They wouldn't see the promise of God fulfilled in their lives.

In those days and in that time, there were two and a half tribes of the children of Israel (the tribe of Gad, Reuben, and half of the tribe of Manasseh) that decided the land on the East side of the Jordan was good enough for them. They had large herds of livestock and that land happened to be good for grazing. I bet they thought, "This is far enough. This is good enough for us. We can stay here. It's been a long journey. We're tired. We're half worn out. Let's just stay here. We're close enough." So they asked Moses, the leader of God's people, if he would allow them to stay there and for that land to become their inheritance.

Moses had seen this kind of thing before – this kind of discouragement. He said to them in Numbers 32:7, "Why do you discourage the Israelites from going over into the land the Lord has given them?" It was the same as in the days of the twelve spies. He said, "Shall your countrymen go to war while you sit here?" They replied, "It would not be fair for all of us not to fight with you; but let us build cities and pens for our livestock, and allow our women and children to stay behind, and we will come back to them after all the tribes receive their inheritance. We still want this land! We still want to stay here" (paraphrased, see Numbers 32:1-19).

They still insisted on staying on the East Side of the Jordan River. We can stay there too if we want to, but the Lord our God has a much better land for us if we'll be willing to fight for it and go in and possess the land. The other tribes went in with Joshua, as their military leader, and they fought battle after battle, and they did possess the land that God had wanted for them. But only nine and a half tribes went in and possessed the fullness of all that God had for them. (Photo via Unsplash)

I don't know about you, but I want all that God has for me. I want to go in and possess the land – a land flowing with milk and honey, with springs, fountains and brooks, and bread without scarcity – I want all of it. So I'm going in and entering the land. Will you go too and possess your land?

Cross Over!

"Do not believe a bad report!" says the Lord God Almighty. "Satan himself will try to spread lies among the camp, spread rumors and false-hoods, to discourage God's people from going further in their walk with God and from going deeper. The others spread a bad report about the Promised Land. They said the people are too big, too strong, and the land devours those living in it. It was all lies!"

"Be aware of the enemy! He is the father of lies. He will try to spread his lies any way that he can to discourage and deceive God's people from receiving the truth and receiving all the promises of God; then discouraging them from possessing the full, entire, 'Promised Land' that is available in this lifetime."

We do not have to go to Heaven to possess the Promised Land. The Promised Land is for the here and now, in this lifetime; to be experienced and to be a reality in our lives. We can experience all that God has for us. We need to go for God's best and live on the "West Side"! In looking at the Tabernacle of Moses, the entrance always faced toward the east. You would have to head west if you wanted to make your way into the deeper chambers of the tabernacle. The Most Holy Place, where God's glory dwelt, was always on the west side of the tabernacle. That's where God is calling us to come to today!

"The closer you get to God, the greater the fulfillment of the word of God in your life."

HEAD WEST! HALLELUIAH! GO WEST! GO WEST! It is God's word to us today. GO WEST! It is Promised Land living, and it is Secret Place living at its best!

Do not settle for living on the "East Side" of the Jordan. There is a vast ocean of God with many deep mysteries yet to be discovered, that are awaiting us, so we can experience all that God has for us. It's in the "Secret Place" of the Most High!

Psalms 91:1 says, "He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." God's calling us to the secret place. It is a place where the Most High dwells. The glory of God lives there and resides there. It is His complete essence of all that He is.

Secret Place Living

Do you want all of God today for your life, and receive it in this lifetime? If you will give God all that you are and all that you have, along with all that you are not and all that you don't have (including your dreams, your hopes, your future, etc.) – He is obligated by His covenant to give you everything that He has! That is "Secret Place" living. It's the throne of God where the Ark of the Covenant was kept. The Ark is a symbol of the covenant between our God and His people today. It is "New Testament living" at its best: Life for a life.

The contract has been signed by Jesus Christ, Himself, with His Blood which He shed on the Cross at Calvary. He now needs that contract or covenant signed with another signature, and it has to be symbolically signed in your blood which is representative of your entire life and your entire being – everything that you are! If you'll be willing to give Him that, He'll give you all that He is. It is one hundred-fold blessing and fruitfulness of the Kingdom of God!

"The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever" (Revelation 11:15). It's where the Kingdom of God has now become the Kingdom in the earth. Heaven is coming down! Heaven is coming down into the earth realm. It's Jacob's ladder! It's "Secret Place" living! It's a "New Jerusalem". It is the one hundred percent fulfillment of the Word of God in the Believer's life. (Photo via Unsplash)

Don't settle for anything less! It is your complete inheritance as a son or a daughter of the Most High God. You are a descendant of Abraham. You are a descendant of Isaac. You are a descendant of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. You are a child of the Most High God. Christ died and left you something and that something is the fulfillment of every Word that God has ever spoken concerning His children from Genesis to Revelation!

Do you want to live on the East Side of the Jordan or do you want to cross over and live in the vast oceans of God – the Promised Land – that the Lord your God has given you? It's your inheritance! It's up to you whether you want to receive it or not, enjoy it or not, and whether or not you want to spend it in this lifetime. The choice is yours!
