Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine!
Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.
The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet:
And the glorious beauty, which is on the head of the fat valley, shall be a fading flower, and as the hasty fruit before the summer; which when he that looketh upon it seeth, while it is yet in his hand he eateth it up.
In that day shall the LORD of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people,
And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.
But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.
Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.
To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
The Church has erred and that is why the Lord has been bringing a particular kind of Light in this season. The Lord always has a focus when he is shining a light. If you don’t have enough vessel to gather enough, you may not be able to reflect the Light. God is not just shining Light, He wants us to embody the Light. The Light has timing in God’s own time, and it has a focus to attain because the intention of the Lord is to raise us into a mighty people.
Satan will attack us as a result of this Light and it will only take those that have embodied enough Light to stand. The only way to ensure we are standing is to embody the Light that is coming at the season. Drink and get drunken with the Light the Lord is bringing so as to be purged from the filthiness of the Spirit given by the previous wine we had taken.
Ecclesiastes 3:1; 16-17
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.
I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.
Wickedness is in the place of judgment. There are two types of judgment: The judgment of the Church and that of the politicians. The purpose of God is that the Church will gather and shine by His Light which will in turn make nations gather and shine through the Light. God is raising a crop of people who will embody his righteous judgement and take his Will as their Light. The Will and the Commandment is judgment.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
We are to renew our mind by the Light so that we will be able to know what is good, acceptable and the perfection of the Will. The instructions that are coming to us are just a fraction of his Will, which when we continuously receive will make us embody Light. (Isaiah 28:10). The reason why some are not embodying the Light is because they took the fruit when it was still unripe. (Isaiah 28:4). This is the reason the table is full of vomit. We need continuous cleansing so as to be washed from such filthiness and vomit. (Isaiah 28:8).
The Lord wants to raise us a people of judgment. The judgment of Christ is well seated and not scattered. God wants to thoroughly wash us so that when we stand we will be perfect like Christ. The Lord wants to raise us as people that will judge the world; that will be a perfect standard for the world to see and follow.
God has something to say about every aspect of our lives. We need to therefore follow without any iota of resistance or rejection. That’s why he is not giving us many material things so as to preserve us and wean us from the milk that we may attain his intention for us.
whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.
For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
Teachers are those who are raised by knowledge. We should hear with the sense of the Lord raising us so that we will also raise others. We must become a people that God can decide to release the whole of Himself into. God will raise us a remnant of people that will embody Him in totality. Therefore, we must not be hasty to be seen, rather learn to serve in private. The Lord remains our help! Amen!
