Living in the Best Days

As in the days of Noah…when these words are spoken many believers think Matthew 24, the second coming of Christ, the apocalypse, the end times, batten down the hatches, cover your head and hope you catch the rapture rocket to heaven. The words in the days of Noah invoke such fear in believers, but God is about to redeem those words for us today.

I was praying Psalm 85 this morning and when I prayed these words, “Lovingkindness and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth springs from the earth, And righteousness looks down from heaven. Indeed, the LORD will give what is good, And our land will yield its produce” (v. 10-12), the Lord said, IN THE DAYS OF NOAH! I knew it was a reference to Matthew 24, ,but it was life giving not fear producing. As I pressed in the Lord brought me back to Genesis 7.

Genesis 7:11 says, “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of the sky were opened.” In Psalm 85 truth springs up and righteousness comes down, in Genesis 7 the deeps burst open and the floodgates open. My friends we are living in the days of Noah. Truth is springing up and the Righteous One has come down in human form. We are living in the days of Noah.

Isaiah 43:18-19 says it this way, ““Do not call to mind the former things, Or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it?” Truth is springing up can you hear it? Righteousness has and is coming down, can you not perceive it? We are living in the days of Noah and as Habakkuk said, “For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, As the waters cover the sea” (2:14). We were born for these days and it is great to be alive!

The Crossover Is Completed

If you don’t know, if you haven’t heard we have crossed the Jordan into the promised land, a land flowing with milk and honey. This is not a natural location like it was for Israel, it is a location in the spirit in which believe it or not the church has crossed over into. If you listen to the language of believers, you hear words like community, family, manifestation and promises being fulfilled. This is evidence of the promised land life. But you will also hear of giants, enemy nations and battles, all part of the promised land. To some it may sound no different than life in the wilderness, but there are two distinct differences, one we are being led by Joshua’s not Moses’ and two we are in a land that is flowing with milk and honey not manna and water.

The leadership of Joshua is different than that of Moses, not wrong, just different. We will begin to see more and more Joshua leaders rise up with a revelation of Jesus Christ and a team approach to leadership not a one man show leadership. This shift will be signifcantly noticeable. The other change that will become more and more obvious is that we are about to eat a lot of honey. Proverbs 24 says it this way, “Revelation-knowledge is a delicacy, sweet like flowing honey that melts in your mouth. Eat as much of it as you can, my friend! For then you will perceive what is true wisdom, you future will be bright and this hope living within will never disappoint you.”

The book of Joshua is a manual for promised land life right now. If you can hear it there is prophetic understanding unfolding in this book that will show us what we are going to walk through now that we are in the promised land. Read it slowly and carefully, there is much to learn from this book. To get you started, we are currently at Gilgal, being circumcised/set apart/consecrated for this new land we have entered. (Joshua 5) The next thing I am watching for is Passover 5782/2022 which happens on April 15th. Joshua 5 says, “The very next day (after Passover), they ate for the first time food grown in Canaan-roasted grain and flatbread made without yeast. On that day, when they ate the produce of the land, the manna stopped falling from heaven. The Israelites never at manna again, but that year enjoyed the fruit of the land of Canaan.” I see a financial change of the likes we have never seen coming around Passover. Enjoy the promised land, we made it in!

One God of Earth

Satan was cast out of heaven and cast down to the earth, correct? But he is not god of the earth. He is the god of this world, but not God of the earth. Satan has convinced us to believe he is in charge down here on planet earth but that is just not true. Satan is the god of this world, which is only one system in operation on the earth. The kingdom of God is a system in operation on the earth as well and Psalm 24 tells us the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. Satan is god of one system only, that is the extent of his limited authority. Now he has the power of deception and he wields it well that is why people propagate the system of the world on the earth that is the Lord’s.

What am I telling you all that for? Because we have been deceived to believe that Satan is god of the planet, of the earth of the land and it is just not true. God is the Lord, Master and Creator of the heavens and the earth, and He has not given His authority away to a created being called Satan. Satan is a fearful foe that uses fear to control people, but even the enemies of God will know that they are serving a god that is not all powerful. God is so gracious even to His human enemies, because He knows they have been deceived by the god of this world.

The Lord disciplines His human enemies so they know that He is God . Psalm 83 says it this way, “So pursue them with Your tempest And terrify them with Your storm. Fill their faces with dishonor, That they may seek Your name, O LORD. Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever, And let them be humiliated and perish, That they may know that You alone, whose name is the LORD, Are the Most High over all the earth.” The same language is used in Exodus 14 where it says, that the Egyptians may know that Yahweh is God over all. God is for humanity, even His human enemies, but Satan and his demonic spirits, there is no hope for them no redemption, but for us, even when we are or were His enemies, the Lord is going to show you that He is God alone of heaven and earth!

Sonic Boom Coming

September 2021/Tabernacles 5782, the Lord spoke to me and said this is the year of the Voice of the Lord. I was out in the driveway that night, praying and asking the Lord what He was saying at the Head of this New Year, He made it crystal clear it was a Psalm 29 year, where the voice of the Lord would shake things.

Now today while praying Psalm 82, the Lord says to me, “I Am the possessor of the nations and I Am shaking the foundations.” This reminds me of Hebrews 12:26-28 where it says, everything that can be shaken will be shaken so that what cannot be shaken will remain. One cursory glance at store shelves and you can see God is shaking supply; one cursory glance at the education or political systems and you can see God is shaking systems; one cursory glance at currency and you can see God is shaking economies; one cursory glance at the body of Christ and you can see God is shaking the religious system. The Possessor of the Nations is shaking the foundations.

The shaking is obvious, but that is the only the effects, the source is the voice of God. His voice, the Bible says is likened to thunder, and this morning the Lord had me studying Sonic Barriers which led to Sonic Booms. What I learned tied directly to the voice of God. “Sonic booms generate enormous amounts of sound energy, sounding similar to an explosion or a thunderclap to the human ear. Sonic booms due to large supersonic aircraft can be particularly loud and startling, tend to awaken people, and may cause minor damage to some structures.” (Wikipedia) The Possessor of the Nations is shaking the foundations.

I believe we are about to hear some sonic booms that are going to awaken people to the voice of God. It may even shake people to their core, for the voice of God is powerful. It is fast approaching, the sound that is going to launch us into a supersonic move of God. “Listen closely to the thunder of His voice, And the rumbling that goes out from His mouth. Under the whole heaven He lets it loose, and His lightning to the ends of the earth. After it, a voice roars; He thunders with His majestic voice, and He does not restrain the lightnings when His voice is heard. God thunders with His voice wondrously, doing great things which we cannot comprehend.” (Job 37:2-5)

Wilderness to WHOW (Wow)

God is no respecter of persons; God is just; God does not show favoritism. Scripture is vey clear about this, however, we are not all treated the same, because we do not all obey the same. Disobedience to the voice of God is more costly than most realize, primarily due to the fact that God has not blessed the obedient the way He has said He is going to. Obedience in the kingdom of God is character building, for if you only obey to be blessed your not obeying biblically. Biblical obedience is rooted in love for the one you obey not to get something. In John 15, Jesus says over and over again, “If you love Me, you will do what I say!” We obey God because we love God. Obedience to God actually reveals our level of love for God. Remember to obey is better than to sacrifice.

There has been a love being developed between God and His people who have been obeying Him not to get a “blessing” but because they love Him. Crumbs have fallen from the Master’s table for those who have faithfully obeyed, but the storehouse of bread has not been opened to them for they obey for love not blessing. This long season of obedience in the wilderness has developed in their hearts a love for God and a love for people. Love is the root reason why they did it and continue to do it, for they were willing to do for love what they would not have done for money. As this season is ending, we are in a final preparation season from Tabernacles 5782 to Passover 5782. Many things are moving and quickly right now, but because love is the root, there is no rushing here or there. Opportunities are arising, but love is saying, that is a decoy. Knowing your yes, helps you say no.

To those who have been faithfully obedient in the wilderness for years, get ready to manifest. God is tying up the loose ends between now and Passsover, so you are ready to launch into what He spoke in the secret place of the wilderness. Say no to the decoys, for it is manifestation season and you were not just born for this, you were prepared for this. He is about to WHOW (WOW) you with Wheat, Honey, Oil and Wine. You know who you are!

The Medicine From Heaven

Reports have said that anxiety is at an all time high and Bible reading among believers is at an all time low. Do you think there is any correlation? I do. Here is why, because anxiety is the inability to see the future or control it, so people get anxious. Anxiety is evidence of trust in self, not in God, which brings me to why I believe it is connected to the lack of Bible reading. Paul said, Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God. When you are not reading, listening to or talking about the word of God you are not building your faith in God. Faith is a weapon, an answer to anxiety.

Proverbs 20:24 says, “It is the Lord who directs your life, for each step you take is ordained by God to bring you closer to your destiny. So much of your life then remains a mystery.”

Mystery is the inability to control or know what is going to happen next, this is why we are called to walk by faith and not by sight. The challenge is you can’t walk this way with someone, not even God, unless you invest time in the relationship so you can know for certain that God is trustworthy. Henceforth, the need to read our Bible.

The word of God is medicine, it cures anxiety; reveals perfect love that casts out all fear; makes you inside strong so when the winds of change blow and we feel out of control, Jesus comes walking toward us on the water saying, it is me, fear not, for no weapon formed against you will prosper and no tongue that rises against you in judgment will prevail. My friends, life is a mystery, but God has a history of being faithful, trustworthy and fun to hang out with. Read your Bible, invest in God, it will yield returns money can’t buy.

Foundation Repair

I was praying with Psalm 79 this morning and verse 9 opened up some thoughts I want to share with you. “Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name. And deliver us and forgive our sins for Your name’s sake.” Praying this verse the Lord revealed to me, the nation of Israel understood they represented God on the earth. They knew God created them as a nation, God blessed them, God protected them and God’s name was on them. With this knowledge or understanding, when they sinned knew it reflected on the name of the Lord; when being besieged or attacked knew it was God’s name under assault. The oneness between Israel and God was cultural to them, it was who they were. Therefore, when they asked for help it was not for the sake of their name, but for the sake of God’s name, God’s reputation among the nations.

America does not have the current cultural understanding of Israel that we too reflect and are deeply connected to the name of the Lord. Americans look out for themselves, are concerned about their name, their reputation, they are not thinking how what is happening to our nation is a reflection on the name of the Lord our God. Even though, we declare, we are one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all. The foundation of our nation as one with God and His name has been eroded over time, but God has not forgotten and He reminded me today. It is not our reputation individually that matters, but God’s reputation corporately among the nations that the enemy is after in our nation.

The Lord is restoring the foundation of our nation, He has been preparing people to arise like Nehemiah’s, Ezra’s and Hezekiah’s to rebuild the foundation of our nation, not for America’s name sake, but for the sake of God’s name, for we are a God-loving, God-fearing, Jesus Christ believing nation and this will be seen again once the foundation is repaired. Not to us, not to us, but to Your name O God be the glory.

The microphone, which is only a tool of amplification, not identification will be passed to the builders who carry a spirit of wisdom and revelation in order to active the builders in our nation. The doors of the church were shut as a prophetic statement, now they are being reopened, as a prophetic statement. God is about to rebuild His foundation in this nation and He has already prepared the builders to do it. Get ready to build, for God is not done with this nation, He is actually ready to begin again with it, for the sake of His name and His glory!

The Gift of Remembering

Being born into oppression on a level we do not understand, yields an inability to see and hear what true freedom sounds like, looks like. Israel spent 450 years under Egyptian oppression, generations were born into oppression, it was all they knew. Most don’t realize it, but we too have been born in captivity, yes to sin, but also to ruling forces that we do not have the names for. Just like Israel we have been in this captivity longer than any of us truly know, so the sound of real freedom is foreign to us, not because we don’t desire it, but because we don’t recognize it.

This is why God give us the gift of memory. When we remember how many times God has come into our captivity as the nations with healing, revival, dreams, even in the Word of God, when we remember, it gives us hope that God is working on our behalf as humanity. When we remember Jesus’s death, burial and resurrection, we have an anchor to attach to that just like with Israel our oppressors will be dealt with, our captivity will end.

Psalm 77 says, “I shall remember the deeds of the LORD; Surely I will remember Your wonders of old. I will meditate on all Your work And muse on Your deeds. Your way, O God, is holy; What god is great like our God? You are the God who works wonders; You have made known Your strength among the peoples. You have by Your power redeemed Your people,

The sons of Jacob and Joseph.”

Exercise the gift of remembering it will restore your hope, revive your joy and rekindle your desire for freedom. God is still in the business of dealing with oppressors and setting all the captives free. For it is for freedom that you have been set free!

Eyes On!

The Lord knows us so well, He knows our ways, our patterns, our habits, our routines, He knows everything about us. To some this sounds scary, controlling, weird, but to others it is liberating. When you know the character of God you do not fear the eyes of God watching your every move. People are concerned about 5G surveillance and don’t like thought that they are being watched, but we have been watched by a careful eye from before we were even formed in our mothers womb. Remember what Psalm 139 said, “O LORD, You have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.” The differnce between God and “big tech” is that God is watching over us as a Father for protection, communication and direction. Being watched, known is a good thing when it comes to the Lord.

Knowing we are intimately known, it is important to remember “self” wants to decide what you do, where you do it, when you do it and how you do it. “Self” loves to be in charge, but as believers when we “give our lives to the Lord” we gave ourselves away. Paul said it this way, “Your is not your own, you were bought with a price” (1 Cor. 6:19). When we try to decide what we will do, when we will do it and where we will do it, we create for ourselves unncessary anxiety, for we were never meant to control anything, not even our own destiny. God is sovereign, He is in control, He knows you, He made you for such a time as this and He knows what He is doing with you, but you must surrender again to Him.

Surrender brings peace and peace is a weapon against the enemy that seeks to stir up self to speak about things self is not authorized to comment on. Surender a fresh today your self, and watch peace come in like a river. And remember what the Psalmist said, “ I said to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’ And to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn; Do not lift up your horn on high, Do not speak with insolent pride.’ For not from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the desert comes exaltation; But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another.” God’s got this fear not my friends rather surrender.

Freedom

The revelation of Jesus Christ is going to tear the veil of religion that has kept believers locked into this single layer gospel we have been taught. The kingdom of God is a kingdom that knows no end. The knowledge of the glory of God is going to cover the earth as the waters cover the seas. The unknown is far greater than what is known and yet religion says, we know enough. Religion keeps recycling the same message over and over again and then religious people keep echoing it throughout the generations. The gospel is eternal, the Lord of the gospel has no beginning and no end. The word of God is multilayered and has depth, width, breadth, color, of the likes we do not have words to describe.

The revelation of Jesus Christ is going to open up a world in the word that believers in this generation have never known before. It is going to produce a freedom that cannot be denied and a liberty that many will want to experience. It will not come easy, for we have been so indoctrinated with the doctrines of men and demons, that we will struggle to step out of the grave even when the stone is rolled away. But for those who do, they will dance, sing, shout, praise and revel in the freedom they have in Christ. When Paul preached the measure of freedom God showed Him in the revelation of Jesus Christ the Jews persecuted Him for preached freedom to Jews. Judaism was and is a very religious system, just like Christianity but this is why God is sending freedom preachers with a revelation of Jesus Christ, for it is for freedom that you have been set free.

Solomon said it this way, “The source of revelation knowledge is found as you fall down in surrender before the Lord. Don’t expect to see Shekinah glory until the Lord sees your sincere humility.” The revelation of Jesus Christ will be followed by Shekinah glory for those who can and will humble themselves and receive the truth that is coming to set them free from the religion they have been dipped in. Freedom is coming for all but not all want to be free, because freedom takes humility.
