Imagine if you will an iceberg, its tip appearing above the water. In fact only one seventh of the iceberg is above water.
The other six sevenths, is submerged. Consider what this means. There is more of it in the dark than the light, as yet only a small part of the iceberg is exposed or seen.
Consider the state and form of this berg which is underneath the surface of the water.
It is in the dark, away from the light. At best it may dwell in an icy grey light, that is neither in day, yet it is neither in night.
Such is the heart of man. Such is the heart of a nation.
However, God’s purpose for this cold, hard, gray icy mass is to expose it to the Light of His Son, bringing it out of dark light, twilight, into daylight.
The greater (6/7ths), becoming more visible than the lesser (1/7th)….. thereby turning the heart of man upside down through the impossible angle.
Exposing the darkest parts to the light, that shines from the surface of The Son/ Sun above. Turning the heart of man, the heart of a nation, upside down.
The world has yet to see the full heart of God in man turned loose in the world.
He said, “The world, this country is yet to see the full geometry that is Me”.
The LORD desires to melt the ice grey heart, for the iceberg, in its present state, only causes the water around it to grow cold at its touch.
Within the body of man, and within this nation, within its place in its world.
At present (2004) touching adversely his closest neighbor. As the sun/ Son beams down onto its surface, warming and melting the berg, the berg warms and melts and the waters cool.
If an iceberg were turned upside down in this manner, it would in fact do the impossible.
For it would be defying the laws of gravity, the laws of its physics. In the natural realm by itself, it simply is not possible. However in the spiritual realm it is.
The Floating Axe Head : Principle and means:
“And the sons of the prophets said to Elisha, “See now, the place where we dwell with you is too small for us. Please, let us go to the Jordan, and let every man take a beam from there, and let us make there a place where we may dwell.”
So he answered, “Go.”
Then one said, “Please consent to go with your servants.” And he answered, “I will go.”
So he went with them. And when they came to the Jordan, they cut down trees.
But as one was cutting down a tree, the iron axe head fell into the water; and he cried out and said, “Alas, master! For it was borrowed.”
So the man of God said, “Where did it fall?” And he showed him the place. So he cut off a stick, and threw it in there; and he made the iron float.
Therefore he said, “Pick it up for yourself.” So he reached out his hand and took it,” 2 Kings 6:1-7 NKJV.
The axe head had fallen into the river, it had sunk. It and its purpose, were lost.
Elisha cut off a stick and threw it there…. where it had fallen… and he made the iron float.
The application of the stick, a piece of wood, is the application of the cross of Jesus Christ, the cross of God to the waters.
There is a return to life, a return to purpose. There is a reversing of the laws of nature.
The greater part of the iceberg is underwater, as a result of the reverse, it’s floating, it’s turning over and through the impossible angle, and a new type of geometry is seen.
A new thing…..
As a result of it turning over the glory of the latter will be greater than the glory of the former. An increase to what was there before.
As an iceberg turns, particularly one of gigantic size and momentum would create a great undercurrent and suction.
As the air and the sea currents meet, warm meeting between cold, moist air is hit by cold fronts.
This causes storms. Cold water in = warm water out. (In part, in these days, the turmoil of the Referendum.)
An iceberg is a significant lump of ice, broken free from its main land mass. It is a floating, moving mass, deceptively large, yet apparently small.
The iceberg is if you like, is an island. Not attached to the land at it sides or the ocean bed at its roots.
The iceberg is the cold, dense, dark heart of man within the water of the body of man. It in turn is an island amid waters….. An iceberg is an island… and so is Great Britain.
Margaret Thatcher became famous for the quote: ”This lady is not for turning.”
Father God is making a statement about the heart of this country and its place as a nation. “This country IS for turning.”
And as it turns it will encounter the clear blue heavens of its Fathers love, the warmth of the rays of His Son and will be touched by the clear air of His Spirit.
As the chemistry of love and the physics of heaven, meets with the biology of man, the geography of heaven appears and a new map is formed.
As this immense berg turns, its heaving waters will rush to its nearest shores, those of Europe, its neighbor, who will experience the change of its heart and warmth in its waters.
May He let us welcome the change to our hearts and the nation it’s turning to His purpose.
He will finish what He has started, for He is the Mastermind. He wants the mind and the heart of the Master to be within you.
It can be done, it can be done in us, it can be done in this nation and it can be done in this continent. Why for as the Word says, we each have a beam, and so has a nation…v6 says it…
”Please, go to the Jordan, and let every man take a beam from there.”
We all have access to the cross, to Christ, to Jesus. God knows where we have fallen, where with His work, with ourselves and with this country we have fallen short.
But like Elisha and Moses, will we ask v.3 “Please consent to come with your servant.”
The answer is clear…v.7 “Pick it up for yourself”…
He was there with His servant.
He is there and here with us now, and He already has cut down His tree, His beam, in Jesus and just as He is ascended, He is ready now to again pick up His cross for us now, will we pick up our cross for Him, for His country and His continent.
Great Britain is that iceberg.
Great Britain is that nation.
Great Britain is for turning upside down.
If you will believe you will see the Glory of God.
