I believe this recent word by Ben Lim will bring life and refreshing to your innermost being!
I am really impressed with this Millennial minister Ben Lim...who carries wisdom beyond his years!
Just read this most encouraging exhortation to the Body and it will really speak to many of you right where you're at:
Be encouraged that you have passed the test...and great is your reward! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
The Lord began speaking to me about a week ago, saying aloud, that you have passed the test! I declare to you, Church: You have passed the test. THE TEST IS OVER.
So many people have just endured the greatest trials and warfare of their lives. This is because there is a great reward that is coming. So many have gone through the most grotesque and heinous attacks on their integrity and character in the last season. However, the Lord is now turning things around. The bitterness is turning sweet and you are crossing over into the Promised Land. The Lord is anointing you, not to die out in the wilderness, but to walk out and through. You will not die, but you shall live! You shall walk through and not be scathed.
"The Lord is distinguishing His Church with a fire that cannot be extinguished."
"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze." (Isaiah 43:2)
I declare over you: The test is over! The test is over! The test is over.
Breaking the Cycles Through Submission
At the same time, I saw that we are living in the days where man-made forms and agendas will fall. But I declare over you who've been found faithful, tried and true: His voice is leading you through. You shall pass over, BREAKING THE CYCLES.
God is wanting to move us from glory to glory, but we must be willing to submit. You cannot have glory without submission. And you cannot have resurrection glory without death. You must die daily. You must die to yourself so that every single habit, thought pattern, and cycle of pride and carnality will be broken off of you in Jesus' name.
No longer will you go around and around the merry-go-round of Christianity, struggling with a certain sin and a sickness for years and decades. No longer will you struggle with broken relationships and destruction for generations. The Lord is bringing deliverance to you. The Lord is bringing healing to you in Jesus' name. The continual cycles of broken relationships, slander and gossip stop now.
Receive your healing. The curse is broken and the cycle is destroyed. Your season of wandering around and around the mountain for 40 years ends now. It is time for you to enter into the Promise Land. YOU WILL NOT DIE IN THE WILDERNESS. The wilderness is not your home, the glory of God is. The wilderness is not where you belong, the land of milk and honey is. The Lord will cause you to possess the fat of the land. The wilderness is the place where little boys are turned into men... where children are turned into spiritual giants, and slaves are turned into worshipers. (Photo via Unsplash)
Facing the Wilderness
The Lord wants you to willingly walk through the wilderness as the Spirit of the Lord led Jesus into the wilderness (Matthew 4:1). You cannot be like Jesus without facing the wilderness. You cannot have the greater glory without willingly choosing to drink of His cup of suffering. The Lord will give you His new wine, but it is possessed through the process of the pressing. The Lord is pressing the wine. You will not die in the wilderness, Church! You will not die in mist of all of the trials and tribulations. You will not be left behind in the agony of the garden. The Lord is your defender, and when you walk through the tests and trials of life, the Lord will speak on your behalf.
It is FINISHED!
IT IS FINISHED! I believe what just happened with the Supreme Count is a prophetic sign to this generation. The MOST HIGH has spoken. The MOST SUPREME Court has spoken. When God speaks, it is done and it is finished. The jurisdiction of Heaven will nullify every false word, falsely spoken curse, and every vex and hex in Jesus' name. The gavel is smashing the idols. The power of God is destroying the false statues of Nebuchadnezzar and Dagon.
The anointing is breaking the yoke. Every yoke of religion and Jezebellic soul tie be broken off of you in Jesus' name! Your prayers and your prophecies are working. Your purity is being honored and your pressing through is blessing you. Do not give up Church! Though you have gone through the greatest Hellish warfare of your life, do not give up. The Lord is going to cause you to pass, and you will pass the test and be confirmed.
"You cannot have glory without submission. And you cannot have resurrection glory without death."
"I CONFIRM YOU. And no Hellish hordes of demons and devils can stop that," says the Lord. "Watch what I will do! The enemy tried to kill you because he was afraid of you, but watch what I will do with you. I will use you to be like a hammer and a sword in My hand, to smash and destroy all principalities," says the Lord. "Because you have been forged in the fire, you will be used for greater purposes. Your patience and your prayers have caused you to shine. Shine on, My son. Shine on, My daughter. I CONFIRM you and AFFIRM you."
Willingness: the Key to Promotions and Upgrades
Many of us have passed the test. That is why we are here right now. Listen, the devil wanted you to die and wither in the desert, but you are here. It hasn't been easy being a Believer but you are still here, and the Lord is about to honor you! You are about to enter into the greatest glory of your life. The Lord is about to do something so supernatural through you. Like Jesus, when He prayed in the Garden of Olives, "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from Me; yet not My will, but yours be done" (Luke 22:42), all we have to do is be willing. Be willing to endure through the wilderness and He will honor you. Be willing to walk through your path of testing and you will pass. The Lord will see you through.
There are many tests that are going on right now. Relationally, financially, and spiritually. However, the Lord is growing your character so that you will mature into handling the greater glory properly. Do not be afraid of the temptations in the wilderness, but journey on with the Lord. He will see you through. You have passed the test.
A Distinguished Spirit
"But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his descendants shall possess it." (Numbers 14:24 ESV)
Caleb and Joshua were the only two spies that entered into the Promised Land. The other ten spies, along with that whole generation of unbelievers and doubters, had died in the wilderness. Joshua and Caleb were of a different Spirit. I believe that "Spirit" was the Holy Spirit! You are of a different Spirit and you will be distinguished in Jesus' name. The Lord is distinguishing His Church with the Spirit of holiness. The Lord is distinguishing His Church with a fire that cannot be extinguished. The Holy Spirit will cause you to pass through, and to pass the test because of your heart attitude toward Him. (Photo via Pixabay)
Do not allow the wilderness to jade you. Do not allow the enemy to destroy you. May you walk forward in truth, righteousness and integrity. Though the enemy tried to destroy you and assassinate your character, you shall be confirmed and you shall pass the test. Your greatest days are ahead of you! Great ready for generational breakthroughs and for national change, in Jesus' name. I declare over you: You have passed the test. THE TEST IS OVER. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
