“Therefore I will bewail the vine of Sibmah, With the weeping of Jazer; I will drench you with my tears, O Heshbon and Elealeh; For battle cries have fallen over your summer fruits and your harvest. Gladness is taken away, and joy from the plentiful field; In the vineyards there will be no singing, nor will there be shouting; no treaders will tread out wine in the presses; I have made their shouting cease.” (Isaiah 16:9-10)
Today we see obvious signs of the curse of the earth, and our task is to preserve the blessing that is on the righteous people. The Lord says that even for the sake of ten righteous people in the city, He will keep the city. Here is the principle of how to keep the blessing in the cursed land: to keep righteousness in your homes and in your heart.
Do you think that man can find strength to rejoice if there is no blessing from God?
“There is no peace for the “wicked,” says the Lord. The Lord reveals that it was He who had their joy cease: “And it shall come to pass, when it is seen that Moab is weary on the high place, that he will come to his sanctuary to pray; but he will not prevail. This is the word which the Lord has spoken concerning Moab since that time. But now the Lord has spoken, saying, “Within three years, as the years of a hired man, the glory of Moab will be despised with all that great multitude, and the remnant will be very small and feeble” (Isaiah 16:12-14).
Today is the time when the church can enter into mercy, get clothed with the mantle of mercy. The Church must become merciful.
“Let My outcasts dwell with you, O Moab; be a shelter to them from the face of the spoiler. For the extortioner is at an end, devastation ceases, the oppressors are consumed out of the land. In mercy the throne will be established; and One will sit on it in truth, in the tabernacle of David, judging and seeking justice and hastening righteousness.” (Isaiah 16:4-5).
Establish the Throne of the Lord in the church by mercy. Now is the time for mercy, have mercy on people, don’t seek justice. Mercy must come from our mouths and our hands. Just cover everyone with mercy. This is the dimension of mercy. Take a seat on it in truth, righteousness and justice. If you want to carry the dimension of the Throne – the Royal God, don’t fuss with the soicial thing, but keep your heart and spirit in the dimension of the Throne. And there, mercy pours out from the Throne.
Do not demand from a man, do not explain why he is cursed, but lead him to mercy. The mercy of God is the dimension of the last days for the Church of the Lord. She doesn’t rejoice at the judgments, she doesn’t run around pointing her finger, why you got there, because man is above all. How much the church must walk as high as mercy!
There was a revelation that dirty water is coming, and it will not be like a crushing wave of tsunami, but a gradual rise of water that will fill the entire city. Something like this is happening – it’s called a curse.
We will see increasing signs of the curse. The signs of a curse can be represented by one axiom – when you see that the total of accidentals works against you, then this is a growing curse.
When you live in a cursed land – there are no good fruits, there are no good people who help, the people you meet are against you, not for you. You keep getting irritants on your way: sudden illnesses, accidents, inconsistencies. It is infant level to think that you can still get a blessing. Stop thinking like that. When you walk amidst glass, you don’t expect to see plants there.
If the land is cursed, then even if the righteous person lives, this doesn’t mean there will be blessing all around. Learn to live in the midst of a curse while being a blessing yourself. Here is the position of the church. To hold the radiance of blessing within us.
“Glorious is the King’s daughter within”. There will always be a source of joy, there will always be light and peace, there will always be mercy and acceptance, there will always be love, forgiveness, mercy and prophetic ministry – a clear and direct Word – clear, fearless and pure.
Such places are fewer and fewer. For those who haven’t made it to choose the narrow path for themselves it will be very difficult to find this path amidst Christian ethics.
Those born in the midst of battle must now be found and join with their fathers.
There will be Melchizedeks, there will be Boanerges, but remember – God will connect these constellations. Therefore let those who seek constellations find you. Connect, do not be afraid of connections, if you can reach out to someone.
In the land of blessings – accidents are “for” us, they work to increase your peace, and in cursed places – to steal it. The total of accidents in a cursed land works against man, and in a blessed land – “for” man.
Watch and see what trends are happening around.
There are three signs of a curse: disease, war and famine. This is the Bible. Famine is a very terrible curse. Don’t be surprised because the curse is coming. I pray it doesn’t happen.
“For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob, and will still choose Israel, and settle them in their own land. The strangers will be joined with them, and they will cling to the house of Jacob. Then people will take them and bring them to their place, and the house of Israel will possess them for servants and maids in the land of the Lord; they will take them captive whose captives they were, and rule over their oppressors.” (Isaiah 14:1-2)
The season of this mercy implies this “possessing”. We need to learn now to possess strangers. The Lord says that the house of Israel will possess them.
Learn to possess the weak, the staggering, the “clinging” ones. Possess those whom you didn’t accept before.
The Throne is a mercy seat, the church shows mercy, and this is a time of assimilation. This word for Israel was that you will enter the new season, you used to consider them Gentiles, strangers, and now they will come to you, and you need to learn how to possess them.
They will go away from fear, because there’s no discouragement. We need to accept them, learn to possess, and not remain the same. This is the season of possessing.
It’s all about giving mercy from the Throne. Throne dimension, showing mercy.
Christ spoke of this:
“Jesus said to her: do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brethren and say to them, I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God” (John 20:17).
The two levels of dimensions of knowing God are “my God” and “our God”. These two dimensions God’s man always carries within himself. These are “my personal God” and “our God”.
We all know that “my God” is especially merciful to each of us – this is the uniqueness of my Father to me. This is the secret – He treats each of His children in a special way. This is the breadth of love. Every child feels loved. This is of God. He opens His whole heart to the child. Jesus went to His Father.
But then, when all the children become mature, they come to “our God.” This is maturity. The total of individual love gives Him their common love – this is maturity.
It is necessary to make “my God” – “our God” through sharing the best things. I want to share my best things – share, give the best to make the Father “ours”. If you love Him, He will turn you to His people. Freely you have received, freely give. It’s all about love. You don’t love, that’s why you’re busy with yourself.
“For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” (2 Peter 3:5-7).
Three dimensions of God’s Word.
Creative – God’s Word creates. You can create things if you use it. The heavens and the earth were made by it.
Creative word – create life, create peace, declare into the spiritual world. Declare the creative Word, create life around you.
Second. The Word of God provides and nourishes us. We provide life around us – with the same Word from which life came. Think deeply about this.
Third, preserve. The earth is preserved by the same Word. Preserved by Jesus. The watchman guards the treasure. We preserve the Church of God, we keep the revelations. Where? – Inside our heart. Whatever happens, we stand. Not because we are careless, but because treasures and fire are preserved.
Signs of the curse are coming – we need to stand, we will endure, do not be afraid, the main thing is – stand for the Word.
