I’m prompted to publish many times a week, and it doesn’t matter to me if anyone loves it, reads it, or reacts. It is my submission to Our Heavenly Father.
Today, God has asked me to remind everyone who has ears to hear to listen to what the Spirit is saying.
So, pay attention.
The first is 1 of 2 verses of Scripture. 1 Peter 1:15-16 tells us to be holy as He our God is holy!
“But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.””
In fact, Peter instructs us to be holy in whatever we do. Indeed, Peter reminds us now that it is a law from Leviticus 11:44-45 and 19:2. In fact, God Himself adds to that mandate, which we as the church must pay attention to, and be obedient.
This is a demand, not a suggestion or an implication. We must obey.
In that passage, where Peter is writing, he points out how God is telling His children that need not to make ourselves unclean. Ask yourself a question, are you a child of God? If so, this means that God is expecting our obedience. What does this mean? Pay attention. God is informing us just what that is. so that we do make a mistake or misunderstanding. God warns His children against doing so with any of the earth’s swarming things. Now, does this include bugs, insects, and creepy crawlies? Yes, indeed, so. He goes on to claim that He took us out of Egypt.
Now, hold on a second. Doctor John, Are we all Hebrew or members of the Israeli nation? That’s Old Testament nonsense that has nothing to do with us. No? Then why did Peter write it in the New Testament? Quit looking for excuses, pay attention and be obedient!
This must be viewed theologically and spiritually. God – our God – is He not also your God? Our God, who, by the way, does not change and is unmoved by circumstances, claims that it was He who delivered us from the land of our enslavement. This was his duty. We don’t pull ourselves out of jams; God does!
So, from what bonds were we freed? Our bandage’s purpose was to cover up sin. Before we were carried out of Egypt, we were unsaved, slaves to sin, and had Satan as our parent.
It’s an idolatrous area, a place where sexual immorality thrives. It’s a place where everything BUT GOD happens, and He saved you and me from it. Now He is urging to quit being like them and start acting like Him! This is so basic that you need someone to explain it to you!
So, what about the swarming things? Aren’t they all the things that bother us, annoy our connection with the Father, and so on? It’s not swarming insects, but a spiritual message to never forget. That swarm is not just in Egypt (our bondage country), but all throughout the world (those things that pertain to flesh or carnality). Man was created from earth’s dust. This speaks directly to our flesh. God is telling us to cease being fleshly and start becoming holy!
Then, in Leviticus 19:2, He would have Ol’ Mose speak to them again, telling them to remain holy. This is obviously significant to God. He then referred to them as Israel’s sons!
This appeals to God’s people who know who they are IN HIM and desire to be holy again, just as HE is. In other words, this message is for everyone who call on His name and bear His name, not simply new converts and believers.
The second thing God would have me remind you of is simply this,
” If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
Yeah, I’ve been reading all of these reports and posts about Asbury College, and I’m sorry to be the skeptic in the room. But I really am not. I’m more interested in watching and praying.
So, how do they feel about the alphabet soup leftist agenda that has splintered their organization? This denomination, which has not only allowed and condoned homosexuality, but has even advanced its agenda? Is God moving to say it’s okay to do the other thing that He despises? Is this a deflection, as liberals would, have it? Are we supposed to ignore the elephant in the room? Is this God moving or stirring? Is it man doing what he should or God causing men to be dutiful worshippers?
First and foremost, there is no such thing as a “move of God,” as WE refer to it.
God does not move! That’s the Bible. (Malachi 3:6)
What we refer to as God moving is simply when we move in God via obedience and then view Him differently. I know we’ve been told it’s a movement. But God remains exactly where we left Him. Did you ever consider it?
God will not change who He is. We alter our position, perspective, and viewpoint as a result of God shifting our circumstances, situations, and worlds. Why? He does this in order to bring and cause us to rise higher to Him and His higher purpose than our greatest efforts could ever achieve.
As a result, I’ve been praying about the Asbury event. I’m convinced that this is people seeking Him, which is what we should all be doing. I view it as young adults coming out of high school and early college, all these young people looking about and asking what God is doing.
God is doing what He has always done. If anything, this is a step closer to God for man. And thank God for it. Because the world requires more HIM!
The world has always been and will always be the same.
What the people of God are is what God’s people have always been and will always be.
However, every revival (whether that’s what we want to call it or whatever ain’t up to me) is because God has raised something from the dead!
Didn’t God resurrect Himself after three days in the tomb?
What is so dead that a resurrection is required? It’s because their repentance had died, and God’s people needed a breakthrough!
People, please repent! I’m reminded of what He reminded me of in the final verse, and what I feel God is accomplishing.
“If my people who are called by name, would (1) humble themselves and (2) pray, (3) seek my Face (identity) then I will (1) hear from Heaven (from His position that is higher than their position) and I will (2) forgive their sin, and I will (3) heal their land (what were we made from? This speaks of our humanity).”
It surprises me how people’s judgment is based on flesh, outer appearance, their opinion, whether they agree or disagree with what you say, or what they believe they know. It’s ludicrous!
Some Christians are so preoccupied with determining who they agree or disagree with, who they like or dislike, whether you sing the music they enjoy or preach what their ears itch for, and all of this carnal nonsense! I am A B S O L U T E L Y sick of it!
That, I believe, is exactly what God said to his envoy on January 1st. God spoke to this ambassador in 2023. Allow me to renew as many ears as there are…
I won’t disclose where it originates from since it would need me to explain it, and your scrolling would take precedence over God’s Word (some of you do).
“To you I lift up my eyes,
O you who are enthroned in the heavens!
Behold, as the eyes of servants
look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maidservant
to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the Lord our God,
till he has mercy upon us.”
“Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us,
for we have had more than enough of contempt.
Our soul has had more than enough
of the scorn of those who are at ease,
of the contempt of the proud.”
THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW. A REVIVAL IS COMING, AND TO UNDERSTAND WHY, YOU MUST HEAR GOD SPEAK. TO HEAR HIM SPEAK, YOU MUST BE IN THE RIGHT POSITION TO HEAR RIGHTEOUSNESS IN TRUTH!
If you want to know what the worldwide revival is for, it is called God deploying this revival to revive not our nice times, nor our feel-good moments, or to view anything as a spectator, but something more.
God’s people have been crying out for several years after Covid, and here is His response. We have been praying to God about it since the Old Testament, when God stated,
“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
This is what we have all been reciting from 2 Chronicles 7:14. God is speaking here. Now that we’ve reminded Him of what He said all those years ago, God responds, “All right, if you insist!”
