Many people in the body of Christ have heard so much and seen so little. They have heard clearly promises that God has given them but they have yet to be seen. With so many words being spoken and so little sight being revealed, it can become discouraging, disappointing, and create doubt that it’ll ever happen. But there is biblical precedence for this which means if the Lord did it then he’ll do it again . Job 42:1-6 says Then Job answered the LORD and said, I know that You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted. Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?’
Therefore I have declared that which I did not understand, Things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. Hear, now, and I will speak;
I will ask You, and You instruct me. I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear; But now my eye sees You; Therefore I retract, And I repent in dust and ashes.” If God did it for Job he will do it for us.
Then this morning as I was praying Psalm 40 as I continue to countdown to Rosh Hashanah 5781, verses 12-13 jumped off the page in prayer which says, “For evils beyond number have surrounded me; My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to see; They are more numerous than the hairs of my head, And my heart has failed me. Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me; Make haste, O LORD, to help me.” Evils mean misery, distress, adversity, trouble, injury; iniquities means guilt, blame, mischief, perversity.
As I put all these things together this morning the Lord spoke to me that the evils and iniquities surrounding us are what’s happening in the nations but come Rosh Hashanah 5781 the weekend of September 18 through the 20th the wall is going to fall and we are going to see that which God has promised us. When we see we are going to be like Job, repenting in dust and ashes because we didn’t understand. Sight is going to give us new understanding and promises are going to be revealed so that we can occupy, occupy, occupy.
I see the walls of Jericho falling! I see the iron and clay kingdom coming down once and for all! I see the Lord of hosts high and lifted up and the train of his robe is still filling the temple and all inside are still crying out glory! Keep walking around the wall because the day is fast approaching when we’re going to shout on the Feast of Trumpets 5781.
