“Then He showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him. And the LORD said to Satan, “The LORD rebuke you Satan, The LORD Who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you. Is not this (man) a brand plucked from the fire?”
Now Joshua was clothed in filthy garment and was standing before the Angel.
Then He answered and said to those who stood before Him, saying, “Take away the filthy garments.” And to him He said, “See, I have have removed your iniquity from you , and I will clothe you with rich robes.”
And I said, “Let them put a clean turban on his head.”
So they put a clean turban on his head, and they put the clothes on him. And the Angel of the LORD stood by,” Zechariah 3:1-5.
There are leaders in the Kingdom who have grown weary in their calling and have taken a wrong turn somewhere in their walk with the LORD.
You have seen yourself making wrong decisions, taking wrong turns, acting out the very things that the LORD had delivered you from.
And you stand accused by an adversary who has been watching and waiting for the perfect time to speak out against you.
You have obeyed the LORD in most things as the opportunities arise.
You have spoken out against the work of the adversary so many times and have succeeded in obedience to your calling.
In the meantime the adversary has been waiting to get even, waiting for that perfect time to put you in the place of the accused, for he is known as the accuser of the brethren.
He has been all too familiar with the results of being found the liar and thief, and killer and destroyer, and has relished the very fact that he can succeed when you fall short.
Now I call you, servants of the Most High God, that you stand before the Angel of the LORD, and present yourself as the living sacrifice that you have been called to be.
There is a flood of remission waiting for your return to the Angel of the LORD.
His Name is Holy, His Name is “Wonderful Counselor”, His Name “Everlasting Father”, His Name is “Prince of Peace.”
The chastisement for your peace was laid upon Him, and by His stripes you are healed.
Know this day that the Angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them.
There will be a performance of the Word That Is Sent, and it will not return to Him void but will accomplish the purpose for which it is sent.
“Though the enemy had come in, like a flood the Spirit of the LORD has raised up a standard against him.”
The Blood of the Lamb is “The Flood Of Remission” and whom the Son has set free, is free indeed.
Now stand therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made you free, and be not entangled again in the yoke of bondage, for He is faithful to His purpose in you.
Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.
To the LORD, calling upon the LORD will never grow old.
He has determined that every time you call upon Him is always brand new in His sight. He delights in hearing your voice.
Honor Him with your voice, and with the cry of your heart.
There is great deliverance waiting for you!
