Lion of Judah
Jesus is here. That’s the big secret and third part of our trilogy.
I’m soo excited! Soo soo excited!
However, We Need to Manage our emotions.
Of course, there are expressions of emotions by a Savage Jesus (elevation church followers – remember that series? @elevationchurch) Turning tables in the temple of people merchandising the Gospel! But in Jesus’ life, this was an exception rather than the rule.
He/She who has an ear,.
There is also Elijah calling down fire from heaven and then running away from Jezebel. And we see John the Baptist sending his disciples to ask Jesus if they should look for another in less than mild irritation.
I believe God desires us to live larger than Elijah & John the Baptist – unshakeable, unbreakable and undisturbed by the transient viscitudes of life. That is the ups and the downs.
““Let me tell you what’s going on here: No one in history surpasses John the Baptizer; but in the kingdom he prepared you for, the lowliest person is ahead of him. For a long time now people have tried to force themselves into God’s kingdom. But if you read the books of the Prophets and God’s Law closely, you will see them culminate in John, teaming up with him in preparing the way for the Messiah of the kingdom. Looked at in this way, John is the ‘Elijah’ you’ve all been expecting to arrive and introduce the Messiah.
“How can I account for this generation? The people have been like spoiled children whining to their parents, ‘We wanted to skip rope, and you were always too tired; we wanted to talk, but you were always too busy.’ John came fasting and they called him crazy. I came feasting and they called me a lush, a friend of the riffraff. Opinion polls don’t count for much, do they?
Matthew 11:11-14, 16-19 MSG
The writer in Eccleciates says there is a time for everything under the sun.
This week as I flip between hearing from God and my normal day to day life as a working mum. I’m learning balance.
“Don’t suppress the Spirit”, yet “the spirit of the prophet is subject to the prophet”. “Don’t force”, yet “lift up your heads o Ye gates”. (sorry, I was raised in the old KJV). These seeming contradictions are both true.
Jesus has been reborn. Easter 2020 was a new Christmas.
(I will do a separate post sometime later on the Prophetic biblical confirmations of this truth).
How Silently, How Silently, the Wondrous Gift was given, yet Pastor Furtick heard a Rattle! He released a powerful prophetic modern-day psalm, The Rattle of Resurrection! An Ezekiel Army of Dry Bones.
They are all truths. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
“Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless.
Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:8-10, 12-13 NLT
The Mary Company (AKA the First Witnesses AKA The Shepherd Company AkA Gideon’s Army) -> Joel’s Army -> Ezekiel’s army
Passover -> Pentecost -> Tabernacles
Seed -> Blade-> Fruit
Protect the seed, like in the days of Moses and Jesus’ Birth – not all are happy at the new birth.
He/ She who has an ear let him/her hear.
However, we the Mary Company (the first witnesses), have received the earnest. It needs watering with prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit to develop the Fruit of Love.
In other words what we hear before Joel’s army and even before the Rattle of Ezekiel’s army is the Rhythm of unity – the love of God.
Us, Oneness, Christ in us the Hope of Glory. The Gentle Roar of the Lion of Judah who makes no mistake is here.
He will not intrude, Make a decision, Will you let Him in?
“The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him. For he laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths. Who may climb the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? Only those whose hands and hearts are pure, who do not worship idols and never tell lies. They will receive the Lord’s blessing and have a right relationship with God their savior. Such people may seek you and worship in your presence, O God of Jacob. Interlude Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty; the Lord, invincible in battle. Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The Lord of Heaven’s Armies— he is the King of glory. Interlude”
Psalms 24:1-10 NLT
The prophetic psalm Lion of Judah by Joe Mettle featuring another Nigerian psalmist Nathaniel Bassey can be heard here: https://youtu.be/0U2bF7N2o1g
We want to love others to Christ. Love is our best proof to show others we are His.
There are 10 prayers that we have developed that should help you in your quest to strength and build up the character of Love (God) in Your life and over time should help you manage your emotions.
It is certainly a core part of how God is transforming me from a Miss ITKnows it all (My now extinct blog from 2008) http://www.missitknows.com/ to Jesus X Comforter (2020) http://www.jesusxcomforter.com
An ongoing journey.
All Glory & Worship be to Him for a transforming, overwhelming, reckless love that would leave the 99 to find the one lost sheep.
If you would like to know more, I have just written a book.
This book is a gift of love to my father inspired by the Holy Spirit. At the heart of it is a passion to bring the potentially life-changing tools he has been teaching for over 30 years to a new generation.
I wanted to make it free but a wise elder said that no one places value on what did not cost them anything.
So it will be available this week on Amazon at a nominal cost. Find the link here
I will also announce its release via Instagram and Twitter.
Let me know how it blesses you.
