I stood alone out of view of the crowd. I looked to my left and as far as I could see were dunes covered with salt bush–wilderness…to my right was the curved earthen natural amphitheatre filled with people hanging on the pastors every word.
I knew in my dream I had to choose one direction or the other. I knew I had to choose the wilderness path…but I wondered if I would survive out there.
Revelation 12:6Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
Isaiah 56:1 Thus says the Lord:
“Keep justice, and do righteousness,
For My salvation is about to come,
And My righteousness to be revealed.
Declare and Walk in symmorphic union with Me through the doing of faith.
2 Blessed is the man who does this,
And the son of man who lays hold on it;
Who keeps from defiling the Sabbath,
And keeps his hand from doing any evil.”
The man who walks in this UNION WITH JESUS AND FATHER…who does not defile this REST OF UNION by HIS OWN SUFFICIENCY/DOINGS.
3 Do not let the son of the foreigner
Who has joined himself to the Lord
“The Lord has utterly separated me from His people”;
Nor let the eunuch say,
“Here I am, a dry tree.”
You are joined as ONE with Father inside Jesus–you are NOT A DRY TREE at all..but flow inside of rivers of living water from Jesus in your heart.
4 For thus says the Lord:
“To the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths,
And choose what pleases Me,
And hold fast My covenant,
Yes!! Those who DESIRE HIM ALONE..To be in union with Jesus alone…who hold fast to the NEW COVENANT UNION INSIDE JESUS.
5 Even to them I will give in My house
And within My walls a place and a name
Better than that of sons and daughters;
I will give them an everlasting name
That shall not be cut off.
A place I have prepared for you…in ME!! A new name!!
6 “Also the sons of the foreigner
Who join themselves to the Lord, to serve Him,
And to love the name of the Lord, to be His servants—
Everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath,
And holds fast My covenant—
Everyone who walks in this REST OF UNION WITH JESUS CHRIST and not in the power of their own hands…
7 Even them I will bring to My holy mountain,
And make them joyful in My house of prayer.
Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices
Will be accepted on My altar;
For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.”
8 The Lord God, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, says,
“Yet I will gather to him
Others besides those who are gathered to him.”
a. hand (of man)
b. strength, power (fig.)
Dan 12:7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power(H3027) of the holy people has been completely shattered/H5310, all these things shall be finished.
This is what He is doing in all those He has set aside already….and what He will yet do in those who are still going on in their own “power” – which is delusion really.
“Our hearts need nurturing. Our hearts so much need the love of the Lord personally from him within ourself. Our hearts need tenderizing not pulverizing from those who would give us knowledge, and even within ourself, there’s a temptation because knowledge is abounding and increasing to go that way, and to increase our store of knowledge in all kinds of things and to neglect the heart and so men’s Hearts fail them in the these days for fear. Yes because they do not know the Lord.. that the knowledge of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom… the knowledge of the Lord… and because men are bereft of the knowledge of the Lord, because people do not know the love of God the Father Who carries them. who lives inside of them. who Bears them up from conception. who loves them intimately… because we don’t know him and we lean on knowledge our hearts fail us.”
1 Cor 2:9 But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
God has PREPARED FOR EVERY EVENTUALITY ….(Spoiler alert!! if you have not seen the Hobbit- this is a clip from the near the end)
When all our strength is exhausted and we cannot help ourselves – TWO GREAT WINGS ARE GIVEN US TO LIFT US UP INTO WHERE WE DWELL – INSIDE OF JESUS INSIDE OF FATHER.
