BOMBSHELLS ARE ABOUT TO EXPLODE
Oct 16, 2000
FROM THE KEYBOARD OF STEVE SHULTZ, PUBLISHER, --THE ELIJAH LIST
Many of you who have followed Ching Co over the last few years, find that
when she speaks, it often goes right to the heart. Simple and yet profound. As
I read this (below) I thought, "That sounds just like what's going on
with us." You might find the same thing. ---Steve Shultz
Some days ago, I felt these words drop in my heart-- "bombshells are
about to explode". I sat on this as I received nothing else.
Watching events unfolding in my own country and events taking place around
the world, it looks like we are under heavy attack from all points. Added to
that are our own pressures that we face day by day.
Yet in the midst of all these
1. What is God doing?
2. What are we supposed to do?
I asked the Lord the same question and have waited for His answers.
WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO?
All of us who know the Lord already know what we are supposed to do. Psalm
91 gives us the answer and many of us know this by heart. However, there is
always a big gap between knowing it and living it out. I am struggling to find
that place and need a lot of the Father's help.
WHAT IS GOD DOING?
God is at work in the nations. All these bombshells being dropped in our
midst are symbolic of the activities also taking place in the heavenlies.
From our side here, it may look like that we are losing ground. . . . but
from the heavenly perspective, God is moving forward putting in place all that
needs to be done for His plans and purposes to be unveiled.
I felt the Lord impressing to me certain areas that we need to guard
against during this season.
First, don't be dictated to by your feelings. Many of God's children--
because of the long drawn battle that they've been in-- are feeling tired and
yes, some are surprised that they don't feel like talking much these days.
Also, desire and zeal seem to have diminished too. These are not the same as
loss of anointing.
Second, keep your focus on God and refrain from jumping to conclusions
about anything. This might call for more time listening and less time talking.
God is fighting the battle for us and it will be wise and prudent to be silent
when we are not sure and certain about certain matters. God wants us to
"leave matters in His hands."
In so many ways, this is another "Jericho season" for God's
people. The walls are about to fall FOR GOD IS FIGHTING THE BATTLES FOR US.
"But now listen, O Jacob, my servant, Israel, whom I have chosen. This
is what the Lord says - He who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who
will help you: Do not be afraid, O Jacob, my servant, Jeshurun, whom I have
chosen. For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry
ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessings on your
descendants. They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by
flowing streams." (Isaiah 44:1-4)
"Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and
foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No,
there is no other Rock; I know not one. "(Isaiah 44:8)
"Sing for joy, O heavens, for the Lord has done this; shout aloud, O
earth beneath. Burst into song, you mountains, you forests and all your trees,
for the Lord has redeemed Jacob, he displays his glory in Israel."
"I will go before you and will level the mountains, I will break down
gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of
darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the
Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name." (Isaiah 45:2-3)
" Father, we come to Your throne this day and we say 'Teach us Your
ways and let it be done to us and the nations according to Your will.'
