The Time we are in

Recently I was able to sleep for 3 nights away from all electrical buzzing and all mobile phone tower reception. Whilst in my own Brook Cherith {1Kings17} the Lord put some Word into my spirit, the same Spirit that I share with Him, and with all those who have received of this One Holy Spirit. I want to share this word with you.

 Ecc 3:1  To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven: 

A season[zemân] is defined by James Strong as: an appointed occasion from the root word [zâman] – to fix a time, appoint.

The time we are in is not without purpose.

Understand that the time we are in is not and never is just happening by chance and randomness. Everything —EVERYTHING!! has a season and a time. We who believe in Jesus take heart in knowing that our Father is always with us through every season and occasion of our life. He leads and He guides through each time. It is usually only in hindsight that we can see that we went through a time or a season of something. At the outset, the very beginning we are not sure at all what is going on. We experience confusion, anger, fear and doubt because we do not know the times and seasons.

Thankfully God does let some know(Amos 3:7) and they are (sometimes) to share what they perceive to encourage–put courage in– the hearts of their brethren.

God has a purpose or a desire for you individually and as part of His body in the heavens and the earth. You are being built together as living stones as a temple of God. In Solomon’s time the stones were cut in the quarry before they were brought to Jerusalem to be fitted into the Temple. The quarry is where you/we are right now. God is chiselling and shaping each one of us, as lively stones, so that we fit into the place He has intentioned for us in His House.

His house is a living temple in both heaven-earth, made up of people who have believed into Jesus Christ. His House is the Body of Christ in heaven and earth made up of hearts filled with Jesus Christ, with themselves as His expression.

There came a time when the all the stones at the quarry were completed. As each was completed it was taken to Jerusalem and put in it’s place. A glorious house for the Lord. But we are an even more glorious house –for the House that He is building is not made with human hands but by the Spirit of the Lord with His SWord as the cutting and shaping tool.

With each stroke of His SWord we are given the freedom to choose whether we shall believe it or not. As we believe it the cut becomes permanent. The desired shape is brought forth in us….only as we assent to His chisel.

God’s desire is that He would have a body in heaven-earth that looks and acts  just like Him. Throughout every age God has been forming the stones for His glorious Temple- body. And each one who has submitted to His Word, through agreement, shall be part of that body. Those from every age shall be raised to be a part of that visible expression of God in heaven -earth.

The enemy

As usual the enemy, who is far smarter than us, knows what God is doing and seeks to change times and seasons.

God says it is a time for birth. The enemy says it is a time for death.

Ecclesiastes 3:2 A time to be born–from the Hebrew word yâlad meaning.

  • This is a time and a season to be born
  • A time to bear young
  • A time to beget
  • A time to be a midwife
  • A time to make to bring forth
  • A time to be delivered of child
  • A time of delivery
  • A time to hatch
  • A time of labouring in birth
  • A time of a travailing woman

God says the dawn of a New Day is approaching rapidly—the enemy says —Darkness comes when no man can work.

I know that is Jesus’ word from John 11 but that does not stop the enemy from using it. This is what he always does, take God’s word and use it for his own purposes. It is because the new day comes that he is so active at the moment.

The sons of Korah sing encouragement to our season

Psa 46:1   God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. 
Psa 46:2  Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 
Psa 46:3  Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah 

Though in our day the enemy and those who have aligned themselves with him have the ability and weaponry to cause the waters to roar and the mountains to shake we shall not be afraid for God is our refuge and a very constant, every moment, HELP in time of trouble. Whatever weapon that the enemy has formed against us we are hidden in our Father, our constant refuge. The weaponry of the enemy that can violently shake things at a molecular level has come about through the discoveries of Nikola Tesla who would be greatly saddened to see how the enemy is using them.

The waters roar – Psalm 46:3

to make a loud sound (like English “hum”)

What does a microwave oven do to the water molecules in your food? It makes them roar and hum through the 2.4Ghtz frequencies. But the weapon that the enemies of God and man have developed are far stronger. These weapons can shake and cause all to hum like a bell. In fact the root word of this Hebrew word means to ring again….like a bell!

This is repeated in the New Testament

Luk 21:25  “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;
Luk 21:26  men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
Luk 21:27  Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

Jesus was saying the same as the son’s of Korah. These things are not of God. These are weapons of the enemy.

the wavesG4535 roaring;G2278 

Waves– Greek   a vibration, that is, (specifically) billow: – wave.
Total KJV occurrences: 1- only used once by Jesus in whole of Bible.

The waves Jesus was alluding to are not actual watery waves in the ocean but VIBRATIONS…Some kind of vibratory waves. Think microwaves!! Think F.I.V.E.G!!

It is known that these weapons harm people even causing men’s hearts to FAIL. Heart attack.

Roaring – Greek – echeo – to make a loud noise, that is, reverberate: – roar, sound.

Again, reverberating sound waves or some kind of waves. The two words together could be translated the sea and the vibrations echoing and reverberating

BUT GOD says 3 times in Psalm 46 The God  is our refuge!!

 

Psa 46:1  To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. A Song For Alamoth. God is our refugeand strength, A very present help in trouble.

Psa 46:7  The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

Psa 46:8  Come, behold the works of the LORD, Who has made desolations in the earth.
Psa 46:9  He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariot in the fire.
Psa 46:10  Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
Psa 46:11  The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

  1. The first time in verse 1 the word translated as refuge is machăseh    machseh — SHELTER (literally or figuratively): – hope, (place of) refuge, shelter, trust.
  2. The second and third times it is the word miśgâb  properly a cliff (or other lofty or inaccessible place); abstractly altitude; figuratively a refuge; – defence, high fort (tower), refuge.

Our God covers us under His feathers high above the storm in the world below. We are inaccessible to the enemy for now mine head shall be lifted up above mine enemies for He has set me high upon a rock!! He teaches my hands to bend a bow of bronze! [see Ps 27]

And in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His tabernacle in His Pavilion from the strife of tongues. Tongues are WORDS…which in turn are frequencies or vibrations. One of the goals of these latest weapons is to be able to insert thoughts into the minds of people via those frequencies. But our God has us hidden in His Pavilion. His Pavilion is like a mighty Faraday cage!! Michael Faraday made a cage that protected anyone in it from electromagnetic fields. His feathers (Psalm 91) are also a picture of this might defence we dwell inside of.

Something to say!! Speak all of this psalm out loud!

Psa 91:2  I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 
Psa 91:3  Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.
Psa 91:4  He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

 But also Psalm 46 speaks of our weapons!

Psa 46:4  There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
Psa 46:5  God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved(shaken or vibrated!!); God shall help her, just at the break of dawn. 
Psa 46:6  The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
Psa 46:7  The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

The RIVER of LIFE that flows from underneath the throne of God is a healing flow which makes glad the people of God

  • Eze 47:1  Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the east,
  • Rev 22:1  And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
  • Psa 46:4  The flowings of the river gladden the city of God: the Most High has sanctified his tabernacle.[Brenton’s]

This RIVER THAT FLOWS, What is it? It is the LIFE of Jesus in us. It is when we as a body give thanks and praise to His name that the life flows out. It flows when we love one another and receive one another. It flows out from beneath the throne. Where is the throne? God sits enthroned in the praises of His people. Above the mercy seat is His throne….beneath the feathers of the cherubim which you are taking REFUGE IN…permanently.

Exo 25:22  And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubimwhich are on the ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.

God UTTERED HIS VOICE psalm 46:6 says….yes He utters His voice through you, if you open it….through us as a vessel containing all of God. It is the season to shout and to declare and to sing and to utter and to speak GOOD GRACE and a New Covenant done and finished. As we do so, the earth melts before His presence and all His enemies flee.

Mal 3:16  Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, And the LORD listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the LORD And who meditate on His name.
Mal 3:17  “They shall be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, “On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them As a man spares his own son who serves him.”

Mal 4:2  But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings; And you shall go out And grow fat like stall-fed calves.
Mal 4:3  You shall trample the wicked, For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet On the day that I do this,” Says the LORD of hosts.

As we COMMUNE one with another around the Gospel of Grace and this union we dwell inside of in Jesus, God is making us His own in our experience, for it is already true anyway. The time and season for the Son of Righteousness to arise as a day star in our hearts bringing HEALING in HIS WINGS. Again..the place we dwell — under His wings–above the blood sprinkled on the Mercy seat—the blood of the NEW COVENANT–superseding the OLD Covenant and replacing it as the ONLY COVENANT today. This healing at this time is curative, that is, it is as a medicine, or   deliverance. This is our God who is our REFUGE and our hiding place above the storm.

God says just at the break of DAWN HE SHALL HELP US. Psalm 46:5

Just before Dawn is usually the coldest and darkest part of the night. When darkness covers the people His glory shall arise and be seen upon you Isaiah 60 says. Just before THE DAWN OF THE NEW DAY —a day never experienced before by us the Church—the enemy seeks to kill and to destroy—but God is in the midst of HER!! God shall help her, his woman- the church of Jesus–in her hour of travail. She shall begin to sing to to declare like never before that her bridegroom is ONE with Her and together they shall bring forth many children for the glory of God.

A New day….a new earth….new heavens…..because of a new covenant…and a people who believe against all outward appearances that THEY ARE HIS CHILDREN.
