A prophetic word from Abba
With countries opening up and lesser numbers of infected case, it seems like things are finally back to normal. And I know we are all eager to have things back to normal, I too long for a nice family holiday for my family.
And to be perfectly honest, Abba hasn't spoken anything to me pandemic related or regarding end times like He did two months ago - when MALKA Ministries was birthed.
But last night, just as I was praying and asking Him about what He wanted to do next, seeking confirmation that I heard Him correctly about starting these ministries and the things He wanted us to do, He reminded me of all the prophetic words He spoke in April, mainly about worse pandemic than coronavirus coming at the end of this year. And I heard the Spirit whispering firmly, "It will come."
Suddenly something sprung up within me. A new boldness. A new clarity of vision. And whatever I was dealing with at that time (I was dealing with hurt and disappointment about something), just did not matter as much.
Bring the focus back to be about Abba
I had that kind of moments far too many times, I think. But one that I never forget is when I was dealing with a miscarriage many years ago. The pain I had was like nothing in this world. But when I received a word from Him, I received His perspective and my soul just had to align with His words.
Things happen, people will hurt us, and plans don't turn out the way we want them to be. Often we don't get to understand why. But one thing is certain. God is good and that's more than enough reason to get up again and shake thing off and move ahead. It is not about bringing ourselves into denial. No, He wants us to bring all our hurts and disappointment to Him and be really raw and honest about it. But after we bring them, we have to lay them on His feet and trust Him to deal with them. He will give us a word. His perspective. And all what matters at the end of the day is knowing you have followed God wholeheartedly and He's pleased with you.
I love this value from Ps. Bill Johnson as he shared the experience he had in his early days when he was doing what God asked him to do, but people kept leaving the church one by one.
At the end of the days, it's about two things: did God show up? Am I doing what He wants me to do? - Bill Johnson
So if you are discouraged for having followed Him and yet you are yet to experience breakthrough, get up, shake it off, and move on. Don't let what happened to take away what He first spoke to you about. Here's why.
The harvest is at hand
I know we have heard this far too many times that it has become an official tagline for any Christian to say. But that's what I saw this morning.
As I was looking for Abba this morning, I found myself in a field and there were workers sowing and planting. Then I saw Abba standing nearby, as if He's supervising. He looked really serious that I didn't want to ask any questions. I then noticed that majority of the field was golden - ready to be harvested. Abba then said, "They already forget what just happened and are now going through life like nothing happened. But worse than that will come."
Have you heard the term "calm before the storm"? That's what I received for the period we are in now. And I am not writing this to scare you off. It's not about that at all. I am speaking what is to come because Abba asked me to do so. Abba is a good God and He always warns His people before things happen - through one way or another, so that His people can prepare. He did it in the days on Noah, He did it before Israel was taken into captivity, He did it before Jesus was born. You can find more in the Scripture. But it's just the way He is. And He is love. He's not willing that any should perish.
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)
Well, I asked Abba that and He only affirmed one thing - it's the one thing He's been teaching me the last few months, really.
Have an intimate relationship with Him. Learn His way (heart), not just His acts. Many believers are after the gifts of the Spirit, doing greater things than Jesus - and we should - but not if that is above seeking the Person first.
The only way to overcome what's to come, the tribulations, we must be transformed to His likeness and fullness, to become love. So that we can be filled with His fullness, to do greater things than Jesus, with love, and save the people in these last days.
Get your passport and come to His throne room every morning. Yield your heart, all of it, to the One who's worthy.
We don't have much time.
