I heard, “It is Time to Run!”
The door is still kept open! Many are pressing through. The truth is that the opposition is strong and unrelenting.
But the Sons of God, by the Power of The Spirit are pushing back the pressure through confrontation. The Son is manifesting His Kingdom in greater ways right now.
Yes, it is a glorious thing to commune with our Father of Light through the language of The Spirit, called Speaking in Tongues.
We have seen that this is an incredible gift. It is the rest God has ordained for a feeble man like me through which He exceeds my expectations.
As I speak in tongues by stammering…. doing my ka ka ka le ko ko lema sha ta ta! God is working all things together for the good of a weak man as I am.
“For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear,” Isaiah 28:11-12.
Now the last part of the verse says, “Yet they would not hear….” Now why will not hear? Why will they not accept this incredible gift?
They will not hear because this is foolishness to the acclaimed mighty. How can a man who is might in words, an educated man, a wise man after the flesh accept to become a stammerer in other to communicate more efficiently with God?
To the wise this is utter foolishness. It is a thing to mock at….
This is why when The Holy Spirit first fell upon the Apostles what we hear from the wise around was that — others mocked;
“Others mocking said, ‘These men are full of new wine’,” Acts 2:13.
Observe carefully the first statement, others were mocking because it looked foolish. If you are not drunk you, can’t be talking like a stammerer in the name of that you are talking to God.
So the mighty rejected this, for it is prepared for a foolish and weak man as I am. Those drunk with The Spirit. God decided to choose this seemingly foolish thing to confound the wise;
“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty,” 1 Corinthians 1:27.
The same way many mock at a chronic stammerer, looking at him as being foolish, so God has decided to use the language of the one the world has despised as a means of effectively commutating with him. This is foolishness to the wise and it is the reason the mighty reject this great door of power.
May I always remain a fool that I may gain the favour of my God.
Now there is another thing, others say when you speak in tongues someone MUST hear what you say. That they must be an interpretation….
That on the day of Pentecost when the apostles spoke in tongues others heard them speak in their earthly languages, therefore even us today when we speak in tongues, it must be a language that can understood…
We will look at this properly tomorrow through The Word of God…
In an encounter with The LORD, I heard, “It is time to run!”
“The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: and The LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of The LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?” Joel 2:4-11.
Then The LORD said, “It is time for the army of The LORD to arise and run with the vision of God. Do not be afraid for to the camp of the enemy you appear as horses with the noise of chariots and the noise of the flame of fire devouring the stubble.
You are a strong people set in battle array. Now it is time to run! Before your face the powers of darkness trembles.
Run as mighty men. Run for even when you fall upon the sword, you will not be wounded, for nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Run to and fro in the city, take the city, for the earth quakes before you, the heavens tremble at your presence for the voice of your God goes before you.
My beloved army, It is time to run in the execution of my word upon the earth.”
