God, You are so amazing! How wonderful You are! How You are Faithful to fulfill Your promises to us!
I’m astounded today as I hear You clearly! I mean I don’t always hear You clearly at first…it’s as if I have to fine-tune my ear…or the wavelengths reaching my ear…to know what You are saying…
In anticipation, I have been watching and awaiting Your new year that comes October 2, 2016. I haven’t known all the why’s and wherefore’s but I have been alert to the “selah” moment in the air! The “Be Still and Know that I AM God!” moment that’s been on me.
You laid on my heart Matthew 14 about the 2 fish and 5 loaves about a week ago…and I’ve marinated in that…even spoken to Asha in India…and then Roseline today in Kenya.
You let me know clearly that I’m to bring You what I have…the fish and loaves…with Thankfulness…a Grateful heart! That’s when You will take and bless…and break…and distribute.
I’ve tried to share what I had but even now it is clearer…as it is clearing up by the moments…as they pass.
I’m coming into understanding with these scriptures that You gave me just a few minutes ago about the nations being blessed!
We are not automatically blessed because we say we are a Christian. I mean the blessings are all there to be had but they don’t come easily…not without great challenge…great effort!
For example I can talk about salvation…I can even know how to be saved…but that’s not enough! To be saved I have to confess that Jesus is LORD! I have to say aloud that God raised Him from the dead! The Truth can be near me even in my hand…but without the confession…the Faith that comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God in my mouth! Well…I stay knowing and not having!
I can talk about the gifts of the Spirit…and the fruit! I can know all about…but until I practice them…they are not abounding in me…and flowing from me!
It’s like I can walk up to the house…to the door and even turn the key…but until I enter I have not entered!
Duh!!! What are we missing here?
Now, let’s talk to we the nations! Who are we? We are the peoples of the earth right? What does that mean to us? We are human because we are created from the earth…all of us…all of us are in Adam…the 1st human.
However, we are not all of Abraham! We are not all the children of Abraham!
How does that happen?
JESUS! Jesus is the 2nd Adam! He is in the seed of Abraham! He is son of Abraham! Son of Promise!
Abraham had another son…a son of earth…but only Isaac was the son of promise!
Look at all the churches today…all the people who are not quite sure if they love Israel or not.
Not quite sure about the land of Israel…and Jerusalem…
Why is it a land of Promise? Who received the promise?
Abraham did! Get it?
Abraham…the son of Promise…received the Promise! He received the land and He received the promised LORD JESUS!
Because of this Promise…and in this Promise…are the nations blessed!
Now I want you to look at the nations…including the United States! Where is there true prosperity?
It is in the children of Abraham…no matter where they are! No matter whether they are Jew…Greek…male…female…adult…child…
What matters to God is Faith! We can’t please Him without it…right?
So what are we doing every week? Every day? Every moment?
We walk around in doubt and unbelief…waiting on God to do something…waiting on Godly people to do something…waiting and waiting…and???
Why is it nothing appears to be happening? Until we speak Faith from our mouths…then things begin to move in our behalf!
This is not rocket science folks! This is simple Faith!
If I say and do not Believe what I say…if I do not act on my Belief…have Faith…then what I say is of no value! It is like the waves tossing to and fro…
However, when I speak Faith…I move mountains! I subdue enemies! I demolish strongholds!
Faith is the substance of things hoped for…the evidence of things not seen!
The Word says it’s hard for a rich person to enter Heaven…not because he’s rich…but because he has Faith in his riches!
It is also hard for a poor person to enter Heaven if his faith is in riches of this world. Poor people are often very jealous and greedy for gain…they somehow believe that haves of this world owe them the havenots. What a lie!
The LORD clearly says that it is His will that we all prosper! But how do we start? From the inside out! Our Spirit when saved begins to tell our soul to Bless the LORD! Praise and Worship of the ONE and ONLY GOD!! As our soul does this and prospers…then our body prospers also!
As we give of our little…just a seed like a tiny mustard seed…then it grows into a plant…a tree so large that birds rest in it!
No matter where you are in this earth…if you begin with God…and you praise with grateful heart…rejoicing always as He says…then He will give you the desires of your heart. He will multiply you and make you great…as Abraham’s seed.
No matter where you come from…the promise is for us…the Holy Spirit of God in us…from the moment we are born again…is the same Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead! He’s the same Holy Spirit that made Abraham a Father of many nations long after Abraham’s natural body could not be a Father.
Isaac was not from the earthly Abram…but from the spiritual Abraham!!
In Abraham…we nations are blessed! In Abraham is JESUS the CHRIST!
Amen and Amen…So be it!
