“From the rising of the sun to its going down the LORD’s name is to be praised. The LORD is high above all nations, His glory above the heavens. Who is like the LORD our God, Who dwells on high,6 Who humbles Himself to behold The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?” Psalm 113:3-6.
“The Mighty One, God the LORD, Has spoken and called the earth From the rising of the sun to its going down. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God will shine forth. Our God shall come, and shall not keep silent; a fire shall devour before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous all around Him. He shall call to the heavens from above, And to the earth, that He may judge His people” Psalm 50:1-4.
Then I heard:
“From the rising of the sun till it’s going down, I have made a covenant to My people.
I will come and I will pour out LIFE. There is NOTHING that can stop Me from doing my mysterious and marvelous work!
NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING can stop what I have prophesied would happen.
No matter what happens, what I WILL for MY PEOPLE will not fail!
The coming harvest will come at a great price, but it WILL COME and I will pour out GREAT GLORY.
I will sanctify My temples with My glory, and all will be made new!
I will NOT keep silent at the wickedness of the wicked.
I will not remain indifferent as they are ! Am I a man?
Will I not purge my threshing floors?
Will I not level every mountain and raise up every valley?
Will I not RESTORE, that the knowledge of the LORD will cover the earth as the seas?
Surely My hand is not too short to strengthen. My power not to dim to bring forth what I have commanded?
Fight the good FIGHT! STRENGTHEN your bands! Strengthen those who are weak and faint of heart, and weary!
CALL FORTH those who have been hidden. TRUMPET FORTH all that I tell you in your ear !
BELIEVE MY REPORT. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken and declared that from the rising of the sun to it’s setting, NOT one WORD will be broken!
I make peace and I make calamity. I bruise, and I RESTORE ! I lift up, and I bring down low !
Nothing happens that I am surprised by it. I AM all-knowing. Men may mock the law. Men may create a picture of Me in their minds that reflects their own desires, but I REMAIN THE SAME, yesterday, today and tomorrow!
I have a covenant yet to write on the hearts of men, that will astound the unbelieving!
I have a day of surprise for those who think I AM dead or sleeping!
All is in MY HANDS, and My arm is not yet broke ! I will come forth like a MIGHTY MAN, and all will be done according to MY PLANS.
The heart of the priest should be as My heart. The law should be written in their hearts, and on their lips.
But sadly, men are changing even My WORD to reflect their own predispositions.
Again, I AM not surprised, I have known their schemes and plans. And I tell you, that when the enemy comes in like a flood, I WILL RAISE UP A STANDARD AGAINST HIM.
My remnant Bride will be a standard that will SHAKE THE EARTH!
A FIRE will devour before them for I WILL BE WITH YOU, and I WILL bring forth justice and righteousness, despite the evil plans and plots of men.
MY NAME WILL BE LIFTED HIGH ABOVE ALL NATIONS AND GREAT EXPLOITS will mark My Soldiers of Glory! Be not dismayed at the opposition that surrounds you now!
SPEAK FORTH MY WORD, and WAR like a good soldier, and I will bring forth Your righteousness as the noon day !
Keep your eyes on Me, and watch what you say with your mouth, for the enemy is looking for any open door to attack you with. ASK FOR MY OVERCOMING GRACE, and I will give it !
Get ready My Bride, for a flood of many waters in the House of the LORD.
And know that I will shake My Fist at the enemy of your soul, till his cage is rattled, but know when it is, he will be enraged and increase his forces.
But so will I INCREASE MY POWER IN YOU!”
“So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him” Isaiah 59:19.
“For from the rising of the sun, even to its going down, My name shall be great among the Gentiles; In every place incense shall be offered to My name, And a pure offering; for My name shall be great among the nations,” Says the LORD of hosts.
“But you profane it, In that you say, ‘The table of the LORD is defiled; and its fruit, its food, is contemptible.’ You also say, ‘Oh, what a weariness!’ And you sneer at it,” says the LORD of hosts.
“And you bring the stolen, the lame, and the sick; thus you bring an offering! Should I accept this from your hand?” says the LORD.
“But cursed be the deceiver Who has in his flock a male, and takes a vow, but sacrifices to the LORD what is blemished — for I am a great King,” aays the LORD of hosts, “And My name is to be feared among the nations. And now, O priests, this commandment is for you. If you will not hear, And if you will not take it to heart, to give glory to My name,” Says the LORD of hosts, “I will send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have cursed them already, because you do not take it to heart.
Behold, I will rebuke your descendants And spread refuse on your faces, the refuse of your solemn feasts; and one will take you away with it. Then you shall know that I have sent this commandment to you, that My covenant with Levi may continue,” says the LORD of hosts.
“My covenant was with him, one of life and peace, and I gave them to him that he might fear Me; so he feared Me And was reverent before My name.
The law of truth was in his mouth, and injustice was not found on his lips. He walked with Me in peace and equity, and turned many away from iniquity.
For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, and people should seek the law from his mouth; for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts” Malachi 1:11- 2:7.
