Witness Him Now
This last week God gave me a word out of Ezekiel 7 that the end is here. I hate to share that word because there is another word that is planted deep in my heart. This is what I wrote on Facebook on May 26, 2019. That was three weeks ago. This word is still valid. We are seeing God move heaven and earth on behalf of His children. I stand amazed.
A little over a week ago a friend of mine asked me, "What is about to happen? What is God going to do in the next couple of years?" That question took me off guard. Ten years ago, God gave me a message that judgment is coming. I had to speak that message loudly. Ten years ago I didn't fully understand what that meant. Right now, I feel like judgment is here. Our enemies (principalities and powers) are being judged. The LORD is fighting for His people. I want to share from scripture what I am seeing in real life. We are living in glorious times, and I am a witness! This is a time of freedom; it is a time of redemption; it is a time of release. Our God reigns!
Let the whole world glorify the LORD; let it sing His praise. The LORD will march forth like a mighty hero; He will come out like a warrior, full of fury. He will shout His battle cry and crush all His enemies (principalities and powers).
He will say, "I have long been silent; yes, I have restrained Myself. BUT NOW, like a woman in labor, I will cry and groan and pant. I will level the mountains and hills and blight all their greenery. I will turn the rivers into dry land and will dry up all the pools. I will lead blind Israel (that's us) down a new path, guiding them along an unfamiliar way. I will brighten the darkness before them and smooth out the road ahead of them. Yes, I will indeed do these things; I will not forsake them. But those who trust in idols, who say, 'You are our gods,' will be turned away in shame." (Isaiah 42:12-17)
"Do not be afraid, for I am with you. I will gather you and your children from east and west. I will say to the north and south, "Bring My sons and daughters back to Israel from the distant corners of the earth. Bring all who claim Me as their God, for I have made them for My glory. It was I who created them."
Bring out the people who have eyes but are blind, who have ears but are deaf. Gather the nations together! Assemble the peoples of the world! Which of their idols has ever foretold such things? Which can predict what will happen tomorrow? Where are the witnesses of such predictions? Who can verify that they spoke the truth?
BUT YOU ARE MY WITNESSES, O ISRAEL!" says the LORD. "You are My servant. YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN TO KNOW ME, BELIEVE IN ME, AND UNDERSTAND THAT I ALONE AM GOD. THERE IS NO OTHER GOD - THERE NEVER HAS BEEN, AND THERE NEVER WILL BE. I, yes I, am the LORD and there is no other Savior. First I predicted your rescue, then I saved you and proclaimed it to the world. No foreign god has ever done this. You are witnesses that I am the only God," says the LORD. "From eternity to eternity I am God. No one can snatch anyone out of My hand. No one can undo what I have done." (Isaiah 43:5-13)
But now, O Jacob, listen to the LORD who created you. O Israel, the One who formed you says, "Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are Mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I gave Egypt as a ransom for your freedom; I gave Ethiopia and Seba in your place. Others were given in exchange for you. I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to Me. You are honored, and I love you." (Isaiah 43:1-4)
We are honored and loved. We are precious in His sight. God is fighting for His people. We are precious to Him. No one can snatch us from His hands. AND NOW - our enemies (principalities and powers) are being crushed under our feet - never to be resurrected! I AM A WITNESS THAT THIS IS HAPPENING! I have been called and chosen to believe and understand and know that God alone is God. There is no other God - there never has been, and there never will be.
This is what is happening now and what will continue to happen until Jesus comes to take us home. God is preparing His bride, then He will come and get us.
The scripture says, "May you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers."
