That which we need to be satisfied is God and it is only through the Word of righteousness that He can be ministered; every other thing is only an attempt. You cannot hear the Word of Life and not insist that your life follows after the pattern of the Spirit.
There is a difference between that which was done hundreds of years ago and what is happening presently. It is not possible for a man to be revived to those times without the building up of the Word. There is must be a process of soul-changing, happening in the present days, except that happens, men even in the midst of revival will begin to fight themselves.
There will still be impediments to the Life of God coursing through humanity. Let us not think that we are called to just reign, there are things that we must come into and things that must be taken away from us. We must suffer, pass through some things and spend time to learn obedience like Christ Jesus did. Hebrews 5:8, ‘Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
As long as you have something of your own will, there will be an impediment in attaining something in God. The life we are running is not the life of man. The life we live today and call our own, is actually not ours, rather it was crafted and put together by God’s enemy. It is darkness and makes us to be adversaries of God. The enemy is the one who opposes everything called God and as long as we do not have that understanding, we cannot be free. True freedom is being free from those things which the enemy has sown into us and using to oppress us, which eventually helps us to learn the Kingdom of God. The freedom also enables us to learn those things which are of God.
The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
The reign and the rule are the same. It is true that other things have reigned and ruled in us. It is therefore important for us to know the Will of God and do it. It doesn’t matter how many years the enemy has used to dent man, God’s creation, God has always been in control despite the seeming free reign of the adversary for several generations.
God in his wisdom chose to hide some things from the Jews but revealed them to the Gentiles instead. He did this knowing that when the Gentiles take it up and the glory of God becomes visible on them, the Jews will come into it because they are the ones who have the promises or oracles.
The Lord has done something mysterious that will increase all that pertains unto salvation because the Jews have to come into it. If the Jews had accepted Christ before now, we would have been doomed and Gentiles would not have been able to get salvation. The lengthening of time is all about salvation and it means there is a good purpose for it. Therefore, we should not be discouraged by the length of past time. God judges after the Will of the Father, therefore those in time past will be judged on the basis of that which he gave to them.
The onslaught of terrorism in our days is about the rising of God’s sons. The enemy is only trying to hinder the arising of sons through the onslaughts. You cannot come into an understanding of the Word of the scriptures without mercy. The Lord is looking for people He wants to set on the throne. The Lord wants the hearts of men in this time; men that will come into His rest: Matthew 11: 28, ‘Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
The time has come to come into the rest of God and stand in His favour. Halleluyah!
