A Thought for These Times

March 17—20, 2009

Prepare the Way for the Coming of the Lord

“I hear a voice coming from the mountain; I hear it louder each day.  I hear a voice coming from the mountain, and it says, ‘Prepare ye the way.’”

When God spoke to me through His Word while I was at Mount Sinai, He wrote the words of Hebrews 12:22-29 on my heart.  He spoke of the times of shaking that are now upon us.  He said He would be speaking to us through His Son during these times.  His Word in Hebrews says: “See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, "Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven." Now this, "Yet once more," indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain” (Hebrews 12:23-27 NKJ).

Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil.  At His second coming, He will remove the devil and his followers from the earth and cast them into hell.  Now he is seeking to remove the works of the devil from His people and to bring down the spiritual strongholds that have been set up in the world to propagate and encourage the ways of the devil.  Strongholds and ways of self-pleasure, greed, exaltation of man, lying, immorality, and the like are being shaken.  God is using these times to come to His people in greater ways, imparting His righteous life into all of our being and cleansing our hearts, which is His temple--His chosen dwelling place.  As He cleanses His temple, He will also rise up from within us and come forth, manifesting His presence into our lives and spheres of influence in even greater ways.  We will be able to bring about changes in our world through the power of His Spirit, bringing conviction into the spheres of operation where He has placed His people.  His kingdom will come forth from us--not by our forcibly taking over, but by our releasing His spiritual presence from within us, thereby cleansing and changing the spiritual atmosphere.  The LOVE OF GOD in us will cause us to know we are loved by God and will enable us to love what God loves.  We will want to do what we sense God is calling us to do, because HIS LOVE is filling us and giving us the desire and ability to live in the anointing of His Holy Spirit.  The manifestation of the presence of God in us, through Christ, under the anointing and power of the Holy Spirit, will motivate and enable us to do these things.  God is shaking things so that His kingdom will come into us, and then come forth from and through us, His people.  Let us pray, “THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.”

Father, we rejoice that You have prepared us for such a time as this.  Help us to know You in a greater way and to receive and live in Your love and Your mercy and grace through Jesus living in us, so that truly Your kingdom will come on this earth.  Amen.

Prepare the Way for the Coming of the Lord

“I hear a voice coming from the mountain; I hear it louder each day.  I hear a voice coming from the mountain, and it says, ‘Prepare ye the way.’”

The words to this song are resonating in my spirit during these times.  These were the same words that were imprinted in my spirit when I was called to go to Mount Sinai in 1979.  As I was climbing to the top of the mountain I found myself singing these words.  When I got to the top, I stayed only briefly.  I then went down and found shelter amidst some army-made walls of sand, about five feet high, where I lived for the next three days.  While I was there, the Lord spoke to me through Hebrews 12: 22-29.  These verses begin with, “ For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest…But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels”  (Hebrews 12:18, 22 NKJ).  His first word told me that He brought me to this place so He could share with me His plan for our dwelling in and bringing forth the Heavenly Mount Zion.  He spoke about the time coming when He would shake heaven and earth.  I believe we are now in the times He was speaking about.  He said He would be speaking from heaven during these times.  “See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, ‘Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.’ Now this, ‘Yet once more,’ indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain” (Hebrews 12:23-27 NKJ).

GOD IS IN CONTROL.  Things are being shaken!  But He has a plan and purpose for all that is coming.  He is speaking to His people in these times, so that we can live by His Word and by His plan to bring forth His kingdom in and through us.  “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire” (Hebrews 12:28 NKJ).  These daily meditations will center on receiving and manifesting the ways of His kingdom.  He is preparing His ways in us and through us so we can be and do all He has for us to do as He brings about His kingdom on this earth.

Father, we rejoice in you and in Your plan to bring forth Your kingdom through Christ, into us and through us, onto the earth.  Help us to receive and walk in Your ways in these times.  We rejoice that You have prepared us for such a time as this.  How Great is our God!  Amen.
