“and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things, so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 3:9-10.
My response to It’s No Secret, started to “grow” so I thought I would send it as a post.
Sandi Holman’s, It’s No Secret, is an “asked for” confirmation, from The LORD, concerning something I shared with my son yesterday. The LORD wants me to share a condensed version of that. The essence of it follows.
My young Christian son, his pregnant wife, and their three young children, have been “in The Fire” for sometime. These trials have been in Body, Soul, and Spirit.
Just yesterday morning I texted my son to see how they were all doing. He said he was having the “oil changed in his car”.
He also said he was tired and, concerning he and his family, some things were better and some were not. I tried to encourage him, with few words, and said my prayers were with them.
I started to brush my teeth, and, I believe, The LORD “popped” into my head a Word for my son and family.
The LORD said, regarding my son, He was going to, “Change his oil, and his family’s, with a fresh, new Anointing of His Spirit In their lives,” (other things He said that are personal).
He Finished by Saying, “Time to trim your wicks!”
This reminds me of the story of Hanukkah’s beginning with its miracle of the oil, one day’s worth of oil for the Temple’s Menorah, lasting 8 days.
This took place after the Temple was Cleansed. Matthew 25’s parable of the sleeping 5 wise and the 5 foolish (Strong’s Greek G3474, Moros, where our English word “Moron” comes from) virgins and their oil supply, or lack thereof came to mind too. (Revelation 2:1-7).
“A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench, till He sends forth justice to victory,” Matthew 12:20. (Isaiah 42:3)
The Greek rendering for the last sentence is more amazing.
“Until He Ekballo, throws out, Krisis, Judgment, Eis, into, Nikos (Nike), Triumph, a conquest.
There are many in God’s Kingdom who are bent over in sleep, and whose wicks are just smoking, barely enough oil to keep the wick smoldering, with no flame at all.
Our lives are about to Change!
Get Ready for The Breath of His Spirit tofFan the dimming embers in our hearts into mighty Lights of His Presence. (John 3:6-8; Acts 2)
His Light Is About To Break Forth In Brilliant Ways!
This seems to dovetail with Sandi’s Word — and I now believe this Word for my son and family is also from The Father to all His Children.
These trials and testings that many of His Children have been, are, enduring, are for His Purpose and our benefit.
He Has/ Is Making, in our Lives, new Wine (not whine) skins, to contain, manage, and protect the fresh New Oil, and the New Wine of Joy, He Is about to Pour Out Into His People — only to be distributed per His Orders.
Our new wine skins are The Body’s safety, so that the New Wine doesn’t destroy us, as in times past, through ‘other vessels’, old skins.
“And no one pours new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled out, and the skins will be ruined.” Luke 5:37.
Just as we celebrate the miracle of Hanukkah, and The Cleansing of His Temple along with The Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ our Lord, let us Rejoice also in knowing that El Shaddai, The King of The Universe, and YHVH of Hosts, is about to Birth His Nation In a Day.
This Is His True, One Nations under God, (note Sandi’s Word “Yearning for The Heart of Jesus”) cf Isaiah 66:8a; Revelation 12:1-5.
“Now it was the Feast of Dedication in Jerusalem, and it was winter.” John 10:22.
The Feast Of Dedication, Strong’s G1456 Engkainia, only used one time NT and one time OT, LXX, Nehemiah 12:27 (= EN G1722 = “IN” + Kainos G2537 = “NEW, ‘especially in freshness'”) , (aka Chanukah), means “Innovation, Renewal”
It’s interesting that John 10 also deals with Christ Being our True Shepherd and we, His Sheep, hear His Voice, however, the enemy tries to circumvent The True Entrance, The Door, Christ Himself, to lead the Sheep away, deceptively, and to steal, kill, and destroy them.
His Sheep will not follow this usurper. They, we, only Hear and Obey our True Shepherd.
As His Sheep Hear and Obey His Voice and Commands, cf John 15:10, we are led to His greater Revelation of The Father and The Son being One, (John 10:22-30) and we becoming One with Them. (John 17:22; 14:20).
Just as George Washington, Colonial Commander in Chief during The American Revolution fought to establish our Free One Nation Under God, and as Abraham Lincoln fought, during The Civil War to keep our Country united and destroy slavery, freeing those In bondage, because God created all men equal, (cf Genesis 1:26-27, 2:7; Galatians 3:28), let us, His People continue to wait on Him for His Orders.
The Fight, The good Fight of Faith, (1 Timothy 6:12) is about to intensify, commencing in a United Front under His Headship and Command, (Ephesians 4:1-32) to establish His Plan — existing before the foundations of the Earth — in the very Bosom of The Father, His LOGOS, (John 1:1-5; 14-18; Proverbs 8:22-31).
This outpouring will inaugurate His Final Revolution and Reformation, in His Body, for the Glory of His Name, to Reap His Great Harvest, and prepare His Bride, the New Jerusalem, and all those who respond to His Invitation to The Marriage Supper of The Lamb. (Matthew 22:1-14; Ephesians 5:25-32; Revelation 19:7-9; 3:7-13; 21:1-2; 22:17; Psalm 45:9-17)
These are sobering times.
Trust Him and stay His Course, as Instructed and led by His Holy Spirit, and through His WORD. (John 14:6, 21, 24, 26-31, 16:31; Matthew 10:16-20)
The LORD Says:
“Who among you fears The LORD and obeys his servant?
If you are walking in darkness, without a ray of light, trust in The LORD and rely on your God.
But watch out, you who live in your own light and warm yourselves by your own fires.
This is the reward you will receive from me: You will soon fall down in great torment.” Isaiah 50:10-11.
