days ahead. In these days of uncertain events, there can be a perceived need to
make decisions under pressure. When things are coming apart, it is human nature
to try and hold things together. The Lord is urging us to hold to the path He
has us on right now. The steps of righteous men and women are ordered by the
Lord. His path is sure and will lead us to a victorious end, but if we veer off
that path, it can take us in a wrong direction as well as those following us.
It's time for the vision and the reaping season has begun.
9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due
season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
There seems to be a shift in our relationships. People we once had a very strong
bond with are now being removed from us, moving into the next season in their
lives as we are moving into the next season in ours. Though we miss those tight
friendships, it is important to see the plan of the Father who is bringing other
people into our lives. We are always being molded by each other. It is easy to
stay with the certain and comfortable friendships, but there is a new order
being laid out and new friends are coming. These new friends will add to us as
God uses us to add to them. We will soon discover that our eyes are being opened
to new ideas and styles. This new alignment and networking will produce great
revelation and insight. We'll see God teaching us something about His love in a
A freshness is birthed from new friendships and strength is added to all of us.
EMBRACING THE ONES COMING BACK
People are coming back to the Lord. Those who, for whatever reason, had walked
away from Him. The spiritual hunger that comes from that incorruptible seed, has
done its job in drawing loved ones back to Him. Other perceived avenues of
fulfillment haven't satisfied these ones who have been bought with a price. God
is tenacious at holding on to those who have come to Him. He is fully able to
complete the work He has started in all of us. It's important that we follow the
example of the prodigal son's father as these weary travelers return. Creating a
safe place and a welcome that lets them know they are received home again. Some
of these new arrivals will be mightily used of God in this next season we are
entering. On their journey, they have unknowingly picked up some vital
information that God will use to instruct the church for this harvest. They will
also be used to reveal the heart of the elder brother who has developed a self
righteous attitude that needs to be repented of. Exciting days are ahead as the
family is being restored again.
TIME FOR THE PROMISES
3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the
end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because
it will surely come, It will not tarry.
We have crossed over the hard places and now it is time for the promises to come
to pass. There are those who have stood in faith, even when it looked like
nothing was ever going to happen. Those pastors and leaders who said a million
times, "I can't do this any more". The tears, the prayers, the fastings and
plowing in hope is about to be rewarded. Tears that have been shed are with the
Lord and counted precious to Him. The faithful husbands, wives, mothers,
fathers, intercessors, who have stood in against seemingly impossible odds, not
wavering, are getting ready to see desires fulfilled and the tree of life
blooming. The whole chapter of Deuteronomy 8 is at hand.
Deuteronomy 8: 1-2
commandment which I command you today you must be careful to observe, that you
may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land of which the Lord swore to
your fathers. 2 And you shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the
way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know
what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.
The process has been completed in those who have stood for years and under great
pressure. A people who have allowed God to groom them for this place
and didn't run away. The years of refining fire have produced vessels that
He can entrust much to.
God is a rewarder of faith and
diligent seekers. It is time. Time for seeing things that have been prophesied
and hoped for.
Deuteronomy 8: 7-9
7 For the Lord your God is
bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and
springs, that flow out of valleys and hills; 8 a land of wheat and barley, of
vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; 9 a land in
which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing; a
land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper.
A strong resolve has been built in these very hard times. A strength has been
built that has not been realized yet. God is getting ready to entrust much to
those who have given much.
NEW FATHERS AND MOTHERS ARE
Get ready for the new fathers and mothers in the faith who will instruct this
next generation. Those who have been passed the baton by those fathers and
mothers who have gone to be with the Lord. A fresh anointing will be placed on
these teachers and mentors. New insight is coming forth. These spiritual
"parents" will be given a glimpse of the mysteries that have been stored up
until now. A spiritual inheritance has been left to us by previous forerunners
such as Maria Woodworth Etter, Charles Finney, William and Catherine Booth,
Aimee Semple McPherson and the world will see the mighty acts of God
demonstrated again in this final harvest. Classrooms will be filled with young,
passionate, believers who will feed from the treasure God has invested in you. I
hear God say "thank you" for your years of service. The best days are ahead and
the glory of the latter house will be greater than the former.
5 'According to the word that I covenanted with you when
you came out of Egypt, so My Spirit remains among you; do not fear!' 6 "For thus
says the Lord of hosts: 'Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven
and earth, the sea and dry land; 7 and I will shake all nations, and they shall
come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,' says
the Lord of hosts. 8 'The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,' says the Lord
of hosts. 9 The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,'
says the Lord of hosts. 'And in this place I will give peace,' says the Lord of
Be so richly blessed today!
