I Heard The LORD SAY “Know that I AM with you and I AM keeping you.“
This is a key season in God’s redemptive plan for His Creation.
The LORD is actively involved in fulfilling his purpose upon the Church even now. But it depends on where we are standing and looking at things!
The way we look at things currently is the determining factor to our response. Just like the Apostle Paul asked the church at Corinth;
“Do ye look on things after the outward appearance?…..” 2 Corinthians 10:7.
Outwardly we may be waiting on God in the midst of chaotic circumstances, but Spiritually, God is on the move for us.
Doing what eyes has not seen, ear has not heard and as we rise we will breakthrough into a glory we have never experienced before.
“For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him,”Isaiah 64:4.
What am saying is not going to take long to happen, people will individually have evidence of breakthroughs in large proportions in their lives in the following months.
But patience is key, you can call it patience or waiting but it means one and same thing. It is the power of faith.
Those who believe will not make haste. I t is the power Abraham used to harness the promises.
“That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises,” Hebrews 6:12.
God is on the move, God is aggressively on the move for Zion.
A lot of us would have been so consumed with the work of the ministry, with our jobs, with our marriages that we wouldn’t have allowed God the glory to act on our behalf but The LORD is using this period to make us wait why he works.
“Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him,” Isaiah 64:4 NIV.
We are in a day the ancients longed for. Oh that we may look beyond the natural. They waited but never saw the perfection of salvation.
The rest reserved for the generation of Christ, where those that enter this rest cease from all their works even as God on the Sabbath rested.
And He is rather actively manifesting the finished work on the cross in the lives of these resting in his love and sufficiency.
Abraham longed for this day;
“For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God,” Hebrews 11:10.
The Greek word translated above for builderis the word technitēs meaning an artisan; figuratively a founder (Creator): and the Greek word translated above for maker is the word dēmiourgos meaning a worker for the people that is Mechanic (spoken of the Creator) (Strong’s Concordance G5079 and G1217).
They looked for the new creation where all things are of God, where God founds and continues to work for his people as they resting in his love.
Where he that begins the good work performs it even to the coming of The LORD Jesus. He is actively at work for us as our eyes are patiently fixed upon our beautiful groom. The LORD Jesus Christ.
In an encounter with The LORD, I saw a house with two tanks filled with explosive gases. An enemy had made this plan to explode a large number of people with these explosive gases.
I saw him go into this house and took two long rubber pipes connected to the mouths of these two gas tanks. He flew with them into the air intending to detonate these gases.
But as he was up in the air a believer appeared. I saw a believer, this believer walked right into the door of this house that was opened and did not do anything specifically spectacular but just patiently walked out at the other exit to this house.
People were watching in unbelief to see him and everything explode but the explosive gases couldn’t harm him but rather his presence stopped the explosion. They came celebrating this victory upon this believer.
Coming out of this encounter, the Holy Spirit Led me to Revelation 3:8-10,
“I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.”
Then The LORD said to me, “Say to My Body, ‘I know it is an hour of temptation that has come upon the world, but know that I AM with you and I AM keeping you.
It is in the mind of the enemy to devour you, but with your little strength you have patiently held unto My Word.
Now I have opened wide before you the door of uncommon glory, now the abundance of the sea, the forces of the nations will flow into Zion.
You are My Vessel of Mercy, My Royal Diadem. I AM demonstrating My unmatched Love toward you until people know and testify that you are My Beloved.
They will desire your God when they see how much love I pour upon you.
Keep yourself in My Love and your hearts stayed on My Word for it is your only source of true patience.’ “
