God's Wisdom For His Bride In Light Of These (Haiti Earthquake) Difficult Times….
"[The Children of Abraham] To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."- John 8:31-32
The Holy Spirit Exhorts:
Bride of Christ… stop all this human devouring and back biting… there is not time for it. AT this season of time, The kingdom of God-our Almighty God's Sovereign Will is in play on the face of this earth-- it doesn't look pretty right now, but the purpose of Father God in all this devastation will arise in beautiful Kingdom glory – a heavenly hindsight that is not rooted in this world.
I say in response to The Holy Spirit:
WE were not created for this world, yet we get so deeply rooted here because of our human nature to do so. In times of horrific tragedy, we must not give way to our human nature! God has made a Kingdom advance for Haiti. Do you think anything can happen outside of God's Yes? God allowed this natural disaster, He did not cause it or intend it or desire it, but He said Yes and if He has purposefully ordained, put this specific piece of His Sovereignty into play, then we have to know that there is a greater Kingdom purpose happening in the unseen. God does not ordain the suffering of anyone without a huge Kingdom purpose with an eternal gain. His Sovereign Will and His Infinite love go hand in hand and His Infinite love paves the way to a greater Kingdom purpose, a destiny not rooted in this world.
The Word Of God Speaks:
Acts 16:25-27 (New International Version)
About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everybody's chains came loose.
The Holy Spirit Exhorts:
You are in this world, you are not of it. Yet the enemy of your souls vies for you to stay focused on an earthly perspective. Your enemy called for this tragedy, he devised it and delivered its violent blow to Haiti, but not outside of God's Sovereign permission, God had to say yes and God ordained the severity of the just how far the enemy could go and God is in charge of the outcome. Father God Has Complete Sovereign Control –Focused In Kingdom Purpose! ie… an earthquake… ie… chains came loose!
Do I fully understand why God is going to these extremes? No… but I am not leaning on my understanding, I am leaning on God's track record, His truth and all that I know He is. He is Kingdom purposeful, not earthly minded. He is eternity focused and is willing to endure human pain for eternal gain. I don't understand that, but I do understand my salvation and it was purchased through such purposed earthly suffering. Therefore, I believe the enemy now knows God's true heart towards Haiti and it is not about this earthly suffering it is about eternity. God said yes, He counted the cost and the greater cost was the Kingdom purpose of turning the heart of a nation to Him, eternalizing the soul of this nation was His priority and He knew this Sovereign choice would be laid with human suffering, but He also knew His Infinite Love would be enough to lead this nation from suffering to Kingdom triumph. I don't question Him! Neither do I don't try to label what He is doing here with earthly titles in hope of human sense! I am fully facing this situation, fully facing my God. The enemy wants to divert our focus to the why of the devastation, God wants us to pick up His Infinite Love and apply it together as His Bride for Kingdom purpose for the devastation.
The Word Of God Speaks:
THEN ELIPHAZ the Temanite answered [Job], 2Should a wise man utter such windy knowledge [as we have just heard] and fill himself with the east wind [of withering, parching, and violent accusations]? 3Should he reason with unprofitable talk? Or with speeches with which he can do no good? 4Indeed, you are doing away with [reverential] fear, and you are hindering and diminishing meditation and devotion before God. 5For your iniquity teaches your mouth, and you choose the tongue of the crafty.
The Holy Spirit Exhorts Us:
Why has the national media picked up on a few words spoken by Pat Roberson, why do they want to publically crucify this mans reputation? Why-- because it diverts our attention from the supernatural sovereign Kingdom plan of our God, who has allowed this tragedy with great purpose. It is easier to refocus our pain, through anger towards a human being than face the reality that our loving God Sovereignly ordained the devastation that we see in full reality -- compliments of our media. Pat Robertson is not the issue. Almighty God and His Kingdom purpose is the main issue! Focus!
The Word Of God Speaks Wisdom:
12 "In everything, do to others what you would want them to do to you. This is what is written in the Law and in the Prophets. The Large and Small Gates 13 "Enter God's kingdom through the narrow gate. The gate is large and the road is wide that lead to death and hell. Many people go that way. 14 But the gate is small and the road is narrow that lead to life. Only a few people find it.
New International Reader's Version (NIRV) Copyright © 1996, 1998 by Biblica
The Holy Spirit Instructs Us:
The narrow path follows after a God who said Yes to this horrific scene and trusts past what they see, believing in an unseen Kingdom purpose set in play, not for a win on this earthy but for a heavenly gain. The broad path says, focus on Pat Robertson, destroy the man that represents God, blow out of proportion a situation by a deeper anger you feel because you don't understand an irreconcilable paradox that a loving God could Sovereingly say yes to such devastation.
The Word Of God Speaks:
Jeremiah 4: 19-22
A Prayer for Healing Of Haiti
Lord, have you completely rejected Judah? Do you really hate Jerusalem?[a] Why have you wounded us past all hope of healing? We hoped for peace, but no peace came. We hoped for a time of healing, but found only terror. 20 Lord, we confess our wickedness and that of our ancestors, too. We all have sinned against you. 21 For the sake of your reputation, Lord, do not abandon us. Do not disgrace your own glorious throne. Please remember us, and do not break your covenant with us. 22 Can any of the worthless foreign gods send us rain? Does it fall from the sky by itself? No, you are the one, O Lord our God! Only you can do such things. So we will wait for you to help us.
New Living Translation (NLT)
I exhort you in under the sound of God's Voice:
Pray For Haiti- Invest Your Time Here- Not Chasing False Enemies! Pat Robertson is not the enemy here, the enemy of our soul, his design is always destruction- killing-stealing-destroying our lives in whatever way he can. Pat Robertson is one of us, a citizen of a greater purpose. Did we see God's Wrath? Did we see God's Judgement? I don't know? Do you? All we can do is go by what we know. Jesus was sent to take the full wrath of God, the Judgement of God upon Himself so that we might live. So I don't need to answer that question here on this earth. But it is one I will lovingly ask God in heaven, but by then I probably won't need to ask, because I will have heavenly hindsight. Directing our anger towards a man, like Pat Roberson is the easy way out of not dealing with the real issue. Pat Roberson has done a lot of good for the Kingdom of God and should not be crucified in the national media! Do you notice that it is the way of the world to BE Lame- when Jesus already died for us to Be Whole! In this situation, I choose not to go after Pat Roberson; in fact, I don't put people up on pedstals-because human beings have natural character flaw that tend to tip the scales and unbalance they have the tendency to fall off of pedestals- they don't have the supernatural stability of the Trinity to stay high and lifted up. I follow after the Triune God, I fully face my God this day without any presuppositions of people, places or things. I place all my hopes and expectations in His Hands. Psalm 62.
The Word Of God Speaks
Psalm 93:3-5 (New Living Translation)
The floods have risen up, O Lord. The floods have roared like thunder; the floods have lifted their pounding waves. 4 But mightier than the violent raging of the seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore— the Lord above is mightier than these! 5 Your royal laws cannot be changed. Your reign, O Lord, is holy forever and ever.
I will not follow in a mediatic frenzy down this bunny trail about Pat Roberson, I will fully face my God and I will be a part of His Sovereign Will in play, I will give myself to Him completely to be a tool in His Hands as He works out His Kingdom Purpose of destruction to life.
The Holy Spirit Says:
How deeply rooted are you to this world? What perspective do you see out of worldly or kingdom? Because our God Who sent His Son to die, His only Son to die a horrific unkingly- untimely death for us has made a Sovereign decision to win a whole nation unto Himself. That makes what Pat Roberson said or meant to say for God or implied or the whole media frenzy about him, not my business! Can I really see a man's heart and his motives through words? I think not! Better left to God, it is His business and I need to mind my own calling because that is the one I will answer for.
The Living Word Says:
Since the days of John the Baptist, the kingdom of heaven has been advancing with force. And forceful people are taking hold of it.
New International Reader's Version (NIRV) Copyright © 1996, 1998 by Biblica
The Living Word Says: Matthew 11 - Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible
Christ's testimony to John the Baptist.
What Christ said concerning John, was not only for his praise, but for the people's profit. Those who attend on the word will be called to give an account of their improvements. Do we think when the sermon is done, the care is over? No, then the greatest of the care begins. John was a self-denying man, dead to all the pomps of the world and the pleasures of sense. It becomes people, in all their appearances, to be consistent with their character and their situation. John was a great and good man, yet not perfect; therefore he came short of glorified saints. The least in heaven knows more, loves more, and does more in praising God, and receives more from him, than the greatest in this world. But by the kingdom of heaven here, is rather to be understood the kingdom of grace, the gospel dispensation in its power and purity. What reason we have to be thankful that our lot is cast in the days of the kingdom of heaven, under such advantages of light and love! Multitudes were wrought upon by the ministry of John, and became his disciples. And those strove for a place in this kingdom, that one would think had no right nor title to it, and so seemed to be intruders. It shows us what fervency and zeal are required of all. Self must be denied; the bent, the frame and temper of the mind must be altered. Those who will have an interest in the great salvation, will have it upon any terms, and not think them hard, nor quit their hold without a blessing. The things of God are of great and common concern. God requires no more from us than the right use of the faculties he has given us. People are ignorant, because they will not learn. (Mt 11:16-24)
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible is available in the Public Domain.
My life is meant to be about the greater kingdom purpose in play here and that is for the souls of mankind to be won for God's Kingdom. Bride of Christ fully face this devastation, it is not by My Hand, but has been Ordained, saturated in My Kingdom purpose. I ask you now to say no to the bunny trails and yes to Me.
For this human being, it hurts so badly that my physical body wants to throw up every time I look upon the human suffering and devastation in Haiti, and I know God said yes, to this, yet I know His Spirit is weeping, kneeling in the midst of the debris and hearing- listening and responding to every cry… "Father--- Why Have You Forsaken Me?
Jesus is answering every cry out of this rubble saying:
My Sons And Daughters- I am with you- I allowed this suffering. See MY heart and you will see the path towards the Kingdom is wet with MY tears, as I have gone before you Haiti, suffered before you Haiti to pave this way for your salvation. I am in control of your destiny- Haiti.
Father God Says:
Bride Of Christ: What happened in Haiti. I ordained it – this temporary path of appalling human suffering will lead to an everlasting glory! Mourning will be turned to dancing. This unspeakable night season of grief and sorrow will be met by My Morning Glory. The SON WILL GLOW! I see the whole picture, you only see in part. So focus on Me- until My Kingdom comes in Glory and My heavenly hindsight brings forth Kingdom revelation that will satisfy you need to know. I designed you with a need to know, but never wanted it to trump belief in Me. Flip Flop Your Need To Know Into Hope In Me. Believe In Me! Believe In My Goodness! Believe In The Future I Have Prepared For You!
My Sovereign Will has trumped the evil designs of satan intended for Haiti, with a Kingdom Card- a card labeled Salvation- it stays on top of the life-deck dealt you- take it up and play it and You will know the Kingdom Victory that surpasses every and all evil intention - a victory that rolls past the surface devastation of this earth to the heavenly hindsight's of MY Kingdom purpose for you, Haiti. My Kingly Heart, Full of the Fatherhood desires of My Kingdom cries out for Your Salvation- it is MY true purpose and by whatever earthly means I have ordained- I Sovereignly stand in MY power and MY reality of truth, holding out to you Haiti, the mighty right hand of MY Infinite Love. I will restore what evil has intended, I will transform it to Kingdom purposes that will stand forever in the heart of your country, never to be taken away again.
From The Bridegroom To The Bride Of Christ:
Christians: follow after me. Listen For My Voice! I know you do not understand My designs- My ways. I don't ask you to understand, I ask you to surrender to MY Kingdom purposes. Follow after ME, be a tool in MY hand. What should you be shouting out of your pain? Kingdom purpose- Not earthly squabble! Let every word of your mouth be shaped by MY Kingdom purpose. It is not your place to judge- label or apply human understanding. Lean On Me! It is your place to bow, honor, trust and believe your King and be available to Me, in whatever way I call you to! You will be asked to sacrificially take up my Infinite Love in prayer, worship, and deed and with great Kingdom Purpose.
The Triune God Says:
Bride of Christ! Why are you chasing bunny trails? I have taught You to be better than this, you know better! Pat Robertson is MY child, as you are Mine, He is Mine. When you speak against him, you slap your own face-reputation. You are one of the same! Yet… He is not your concern! Do not judge what might very well be My Voice crying out in the wilderness; because you are not that good to know what you think you know… you know nothing of my Kingdom purpose beyond what you think you see; that is why you must trust Me in your all and everything, that is why I ordained it this way. I am doing a new thing… will you not know it. Isaiah 43!
Cling Harder to Me- Dig your roots deeper in My Kingdom for times such as these… you will not know what you think you know… as it was when Jesus came to earth… things are not as they seem, not comprehendible by a finite human mind. Trust Me! I have a plan and it is all eventually good!
If you chase bunny trails, you cannot fully face ME! Bride of Christ, do not be distracted, there is Kingdom work afoot here and I am determined to finish My Purposes that were started. Stop pointing fingers at each other, biting and devouring each other… face ME and point up.
Do you truly think you can fix this human tragedy? You can't. I AM said yes to this- I AM ordained this suffering with a powerful Kingdom purpose set into play. It is about ME, not you or not any other human being… this is not about Pat Robertson or any other human, it is about ME- My Kingdom purposes in play!
Don't you get it yet? This earth will pass away, but My Kingdom is forever! You were not designed to stay here- be deeply rooted in Me. Be eternally minded. Be Kingdom Focused! STAY ALERT TO WHAT TRULY MATTERS! Be all I have designed you to be Bride of Christ- be unified in Me! Just BE… found in Me! Being completely Mine; trusting me Wholly! I do have a good future and hope and it is not about earth, it is all about The Kingdom Of Heaven, My Kingdom and I AM your TRIUNE GOD – I AM working out MY salvation for all. FOCUS ON THIS SALVATION, IT DRAWS NIGH!
The Word Of God Says!
2 Samuel 22:2-4 (New International Version)
He said: "The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; 3 my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn [a] of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior— from violent men you save me. 4 I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.
I exhort You
Your enemy is not flesh and blood, satan wants to kill steal and destroy our lives- BUT God, His Kingdom purpose is SALVATION FOR ALL. Focus on God! Be found as His, working out His Kingdom Purpose in every and all situation as He calls! Will you be the one to answer to His Kingdom call? Or will you chase bunny trails that don't matter? Choose Life! Will You Be The One?
Will You BE The One! Al Denson
