REFLECTIONS OF THE FATHER'S HEART

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

[Exhortations From The Father]

 

 

 

*       Truly I say to you, there is a "crescendo" of celebration rising up in Heaven heretofore unseen. This is precisely why there is a great anticipation of celebration rising up in the heart of My faithful ones in the earth. For GREAT victory is near - and My Glorious Church shall rise in great Power in this hour.

 

        And, as it is in Heaven, it shall now manifest in the earth and there shall be "dancing in the streets" in every nation - as the forces of Righteousness, Truth and Justice win the day! And so shall My Kingdom be demonstrated in great Power throughout the earth - through the words and actions of all those who are one with My Spirit. Rejoice, my beloved ones! For the "fullness" your Redemption truly draws near.

 

"crescendo" - a steady increase in force or intensity:

 

"celebrate" - to rejoice in or have special festivities; to observe [in this case, the Glorious unfolding of the Father's plan for the establishment of a Glorious Church and the advancement of His Kingdom in this final hour];

 

____...."He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes".... Psalm 105:37 NASB

 

        ...."And they began to celebrate".... Luke 15:17-24 NASB

 

        ...."Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God and a great King above all gods".... Psalm 95:2-3 NASB

 

        ...."Shout joyfully to God, all the earth; Sing the Glory of His Name".... Psalm 66:1-2 NASB

MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB

 

 

 

 

THE REALITY OF REDEMPTION

 

 

[part 6 of 6]

The Revelation of Grace

  • He gave to Paul the Revelation of His grace. This revelation is an unveiling of the finished work of Christ that is consummated in the New Birth. You understand that all the plans of God were unveiled to us in the First Covenant. He is pointing to the great event when God on legal grounds can impart to man His Own Nature and make him a New Creation. You can see how that forgiveness of sins would not touch the issue, that the confirming of a child by a priest could not reach the issue.

 

 

There must be a New Creation. That child must receive Eternal Life, the Nature of God, for the natural man is without God. He is without hope, and he is in the world. He is Satan-ruled.

 

It is very important that we understand the difference between forgiveness and the remission of sins. A man receives remission of sins when he is born again. He may receive forgiveness of sins after he is Born Again as often as he sins. You remember 1 John 1:19, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Angelic Protection

By Greg Laurie

 

 

LISTEN  

 

“The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them”

—Psalm 34:7

 

 

John G. Patton was a missionary based in the New Hebrides Islands with his wife and children. One night, hostile natives surrounded the mission station, determined to murder him and his family. First they planned to burn them out, and then they intended to kill them. Throughout that terror-filled night, Patton and his wife prayed that God would deliver them. And when daylight came, they were surprised to find their attackers had left.

 

A year later, the chief of the tribe that had intended to kill the Patton's became a Christian. So Patton asked the chief what happened on the night they had planned on killing them and why they turned back.

 

The chief said, “Who were all those men you had with you there?”

 

Patton knew of no men who were with him. The chief went on to explain how they saw hundreds of big men in shining garments around the mission station, so they were afraid to attack.

 

Could this be a modern-day example of angelic protection in the life of a Christian? Quite possibly. Certainly the Bible teaches that angels were involved in the lives of God’s people and continue to be involved to this present day.

 

Psalm 34:7 gives us this great promise: “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.” And Hebrews 1:14, describing angels, says, “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?”

 

In other words, God is saying that He has sent His angels to minister to us as believers. He has sent them to protect us and, when we are in a difficult situation, to even deliver us. And when that day comes for us to go and meet the Lord, they will usher us into the presence of God.

My Church is Entering An Age of Militancy and Spiritual Confrontation

By Charlie Shamp

 

 

 

 

I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, “You are in the midst of a re-definition of the church. Watch for my hand upon fresh movements emphasizing new battle plains for the ecclesia. My church is entering an age of militancy and spiritual confrontation. A new global prayer movement is about to emerge.” 

 

 

I then saw angels with swords drawn released on assignments to different regions. Written on the swords were the words; spiritual warfare. In their other hand was a bottle of oil containing the warrior anointing mingled with the bridal revelation. I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, “These will be days of ‘blood and fire’ so my church must be prepared to war in prayer through intercession. I am sending my winds and ministers of fire to co-labor with the saints as they declare my word into the earth. For those that do not know me it will be a time of great turmoil, a time of blood and fire. For my Bride it will be at time of great triumph, a time of my blood and my fire.”

 

 

I was then shown a white War Horse and heard the Spirit of the Lord say, “Prepare for the manifestation of ‘wars’ in the natural reaching greater heights in the coming days as well as an increase of warfare in the realm of the Spirit. My bride must stay in a humble position upon her knees to gain ground in the air. Greater clashes of light and darkness are about to come, but I will cause my bride to ride upon the white horse and she will leap over these dark days to the place of victory.” 

 

 

We have entered into a time of increased  judgments and the glory of the Lord in the earth. I could see great clashes of light and darkness unlike what we have experienced in the past. The greater glory of the Lord, with His manifested presence, will shine forth. Many will be saved through the outpouring that will come. The seeds have been planted and now prayer will produce the rain to bring a great harvest. Great outbreaks of regional revival will touch across the land. Many will experience God’s manifest hand. Signs and wonders will follow them that believe. 

 

 

The presence of the Lord will cause salvation in the streets. At the same time great natural disasters are about to come in the earth; mudslides, plagues, increase of hurricanes, sizable earthquakes, fires, droughts, and volcanic activity will be felt in various regions like earth has not experienced in the past. I saw America and I heard these words, ‘Mayday,’ ‘May-Day.’ 

 

 

I then heard the Spirit of the Lord say, “For those that call upon my name I will be the Prince of Peace in the eye of the storm.”

THE STATURE of CHRIST

By Denise Sylvia Bekker

 

 

 

It is Jesus’s desire that we grow..rise in the fullness of all that He has ordained for us to be. Oaks of Righteousness, that the Kingdom Body may stand in full stature of The Anointed One, The Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord has shown me a “dwarfism spirit” in the Body. A “demonic lid” that holds back growth in Christ. It is a “container spirit.” Although mirroring all the characteristics of being in stature, yet not ‘rising’ in the fullness of The Stature of Christ. The Hand of God shapes and forms us into the Image of Christ, that we may be complete in Him.

Our spiritual anatomy, having been born again by the Blood of Jesus, washed by the Power of the Word. 

 

 

There is always a violent attack against the DNA of God. The plot of the demonic realm is to, hold, contain, stunt and oppose The Branch, Jesus in us to come against what we have been called to be from The Beginning. There are many in The Body of Christ that have reached a place...although manifesting the gifts/fruits etc of The Spirit, having a degree of maturity in Christ, yet have not reached their fuller stature in Christ. They have been “dwarfed” (bonsais)...There is more! So the comparative is evident, the stature is incomplete. There is fruit but God is looking for Kingdom Stature Fruit.

 

 

Demonic dwarfing roots need to be severed! Arise saints of God. There is a counterattack of the ‘forming of Christ in us’, His transforming power is a Power of increase and spiritual development. Demonic powers have set traps/snares during development and growth in Christ. Sending forth roots of limitations, constraint..spiritual ‘clampdown’...why?..for the lack of capacity! These “dwarfism roots” produce spiritual handicaps. That is too hinder, impair, curb The transformational power growth in Christ. The fruit produced is complacency, comfortable where you at, and compromise...ignorant that the statue of their growth is not in the fuller developing degree of growing from glory to glory, maturing into His greater dynamics. We called to stand like Mighty Oaks!

 

 

This is a demonic propagation..evidence of lateral spiritual enlargement but no vertical spiritual growth in Christ Jesus. Spiritual environment/atmosphere acclimatize this dwarfism spirit, creating a ‘comfortable habitation’. Thus the greatest attack is against the DNA growth structure of Christ in us!

 

Arise saints of The Most High, break the bonds, bands, roots of spiritual dwarfism. Come against the “stunting spirit” that opposes holy spiritual reproduction growth within The Body. Break demonic ingrafting, severe the roots, remove all demonic genetics of ‘dwarfing’ in Jesus Name!

 

 

Come into The Stature of His Fullness.

 

Stature/Hebrew/ means height, extension as in height. 

 

Stature/Greek/ means maturity or greatness.

 

Grow in His Wisdom and Righteousness, unto the measure of the fullness in Christ. Eph 4:11-15

 

They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of The Lord, to display His Glory. Isa 61:1-3

"This Is a Season of My Transfer" 

By Andrew Towe

 

 

 

I recently had a vision of a majestic crown being removed from someone's head and placed on the head of another. I was reminded of the scripture, "But God is the judge: He putteth down one, and setteth up another" (Psa. 75:7, KJV).

 

And the Lord said to me, "This is a season of My transfer. I am crowning those who have been hidden, and they will now rise to the forefront. It is harvest time. I am separating the tares from the wheat. Vindication is coming to those who have dodged the spears of envy and the javelins of jealousy. I am placing the crown of My favor upon their heads.”

 

A Season of Significant Exposure, Advancement and Acceleration

 

Moreover, He said, "There is significant exposure coming along with My divine shifting. The shaking is because of My shifting. DO NOT FEAR! Spiritual and political leaders will continue being removed as I shift My people into the season of ADVANCEMENT and ACCELERATION. Do not be afraid. Keep your gaze upon Me as I lead you. The burning ones will be raised up to new places of authority. The crown of power and position will be stripped from those who have refused to heed My voice.”

 

Vengeance Is Mine – I Will Repay!

 

Observe what the Lord said to Saul, king of Israel: "This is what the Lord of Heaven's Armies has declared: I have decided to settle accounts with the nation of Amalek for opposing Israel when they came from Egypt. Now go and completely destroy the entire Amalekite nation..." (1 Sam. 15:2-3, NLT). 

 

The King James Version reads, "...I remember that which Amalek did to Israel..." (1 Sam. 15:2). God has also not forgotten how the enemy attacked you in a moment when you were weak, and He has ordered judgment against him. "...Vengeance is Mine; I will repay..." (Heb. 10:30, ESV).

 

A Shifting of Kings

 

Saul was king of Israel and ordered the destruction of all the Amalekites, but he spared Agag, the king of the Amalekites. Saul and the people also took riches out of the Amalekite nation, which was supposed to be completely destroyed (1 Sam. 15:3). He stood in the way of God's vengeance against the enemy. The prophet Samuel confronted Saul regarding his blatant disobedience to God. Saul blamed the people. He was more concerned with man's approval than God's approval.

 

"And Samuel said to him, 'The LORD has torn the kingdom of Israel from you today and has given it to someone else—one who is better than you.'" (1 Sam. 15:28, NLT)

 

God stripped the kingdom from Saul that day, and the anointing lifted from him. Like then, in this current season of exposure and shaking, God is shifting. Furthermore, the Lord spoke to me, saying that He is shifting gears in this hour, for a vehicle must shift gears to accelerate in speed.

 

Hidden Ones, Get Ready for Your Unveiling!

 

Saul was genuinely anointed by God at one time, but his pride destroyed him. His disobedience cost Saul the anointing, his position and eventually his life. But God had found a man after His own heart who would become king in Saul's stead. David had been hidden in the shepherd's field, seeking after God.

 

Just like David, many of you have been hidden too. God is telling you to get ready for your unveiling. Unlike Saul, because you care more about the Lord's presence than a position or the praise of man, you will rise to a new authority.

 

The Biggest Breakthrough of Your Life and a Season to Recover All

 

I also heard the Spirit of the Lord say, "You are about to experience the biggest breakthrough of your life, and you will recover all that the enemy has taken.

 

It was recorded in the book of 1 Samuel that David and his men returned to their camp, Ziklag, to discover it was burned by fire. David learned that it was the Amalekites who committed this dastardly act upon him and his men, the very people whom God had ordered Saul to destroy. Unfortunately, some of you have been reaping the consequences of the decisions of a previous generation.

 

David sought the Lord for guidance. The Lord's instruction is the secret weapon for every Believer. God said, "...Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all" (1 Sam. 30:8, KJV). God is declaring to you the same today: "Generational curses and the spirit of failure are broken off you. You are more than a conqueror. You will recover all!”

 

"David got back everything the Amalekites had taken, and he rescued his two wives. Nothing was missing: small or great, son or daughter, nor anything else that had been taken. David brought everything back. He also recovered all the flocks and herds, and his men drove them ahead of the other livestock. 'This plunder belongs to David!' they said." (1 Sam. 30:18-20, NLT)

 

This is a season of recovery. You will see everything that seemed lost or stolen be returned, and you will possess the spoils of the enemy. The Lord will reward you, as He did David, for your obedience!

 

You Will Pass the Test

 

Ironically, it was an Amalekite who came to David to report Saul's death, saying to him, "...I took the crown that was upon his head, and the bracelet that was on his arm, and have brought them hither unto my lord" (2 Sam. 1:10, KJV).

 

It is noteworthy that the Amalekite who stripped Saul of his crown and signet bracelet was from the nation that Saul had been ordered to destroy completely.

 

"'Why were you not afraid to kill the LORD'S anointed one?' David asked. Then David said to one of his men, 'Kill him!' So the man thrust his sword into the Amalekite and killed him." (2 Sam. 1:14-15, NLT)

 

When the test came before David, he did not spare the Amalekite as Saul had spared King Agag. David passed the test, and you, too, will pass the test. You are being crowned with Lord's favor while judgment is being dispensed upon your enemy.

God's supernatural transfer has already begun. Claim it today!

You Are My Love Offerings In The Earth

By Georgette Thompson

 

 

The Father says today, you are My love offerings in the earth. In the day of My mighty power, you will be exalted and My glory will shine through the brightness of My holy ones, you will shine as an army arising from the womb of the dawn, anointed with the dew of your youth! Do you believe there are benefits to knowing and trusting in Me? As your worship flows forth from your mouth and your life, you are enlarging Me in the beauty of holiness. 

 

When you bless me for My benefits, they are manifest in your life. I forgive your sins, I heal your diseases, I renew your youth like the eagles, I crown you with loving kindness and tender mercies, I make known My ways to you through My Word and My Spirit, you are My child and you follow Me thereby receiving grace and mercy to help you in times of need. What more do you need? If I did not do these things I would be a liar, but it takes faith to believe in order for miracles to manifest in your life.

 

It’s not by human might or strength, there is no power that can provide for you, but only by My Spirit shall you receive all your needs met according to My riches in Glory by Christ Jesus. The price was paid 2000 years ago, Jesus said, “It is finished.” Now it’s up to you, My Word does not return void, but accomplishes that which I please and prospers in the thing where it is sent. My Word has been sent into your heart and if it is well cultivated takes root right away. When you receive it and believe it and act on it because it’s done, if you trust and don’t give up before the answer comes. 

 

There is no lack of opposition. Think of what it takes to have one person’s needs met on time, every time, then think of all the people of the earth. This is beyond your comprehension but not beyond Mine. I already have it all figured out. I know the end from the beginning, I Am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End and I say to you, what things soever you desire, when you pray, believe you receive them and you shall have them.

The Shout of a King

by David C. Grabbe
Forerunner, "Prophecy Watch," August 24, 2022

 

To adherents of Judaism, the Feast of Trumpets is essentially a mystery. They can see that the first day of the seventh month is a holy day, and a noisy one at that:

 

 

Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD.’” (Leviticus 23:23-25; see also Numbers 29:1-6)

 

 

The Jews have their traditions, but they have little idea what to make of this annual holy day. Their confusion is both ironic and telling because God has made the clues readily available. However, putting the pieces together would require accepting something they are not ready to accept, at least not yet.

 

 

In Hebrew, the Feast of Trumpets is called Yom Teruah, based on the sparse instructions in Leviticus 23:23-25 and Numbers 29:1-6Yom (Strong’s #3117) is the Hebrew word for “day,” while translators commonly render teruah (Strong’s #8643) in those places as “a trumpet blast,” “a blowing of trumpets,” or even “loud blasts on the ram’s horn.” But in the instructions, God does not specify why. He only indicates that it is to be a day of great noise, a day of alarm, joy, rejoicing, and shouting, which is what teruah literally means.

 

 

The root of teruah is ruwa (Strong’s #7321), and its figurative meaning is “to split the ears (with sound).” The sound can signify alarm or rejoicing. It can be destructive or joyful. Regardless of the occasion, ruwa is piercing, thunderous, or otherwise deafening. The emphasis in teruah lies in earsplitting noise rather than its source. It does not directly mean “trumpets,” “ram’s horn,” or “shofar,” but instead points to an arresting noise like the sound those instruments make.

 

 

But it also describes the sound a throng of people makes when shouting with a full-throated roar, and particularly in shouting to God (Psalm 47:166:181:2100:1). In God’s church, our observance tends to be subdued compared to how Scripture uses teruah and its root, but we at least have a song service during which we can lift our voices—“make a joyful noise”—as commanded.

 

 

A Prophecy of Balaam

 

 

A survey of the three dozen places teruah appears uncovers a few common themes, such as war, alarm, rejoicing, warning, and victory. However, another theme of teruah, often overlooked, is found in a Messianic prophecy given through the soothsayer or priest-diviner, Balaam. Balak, king of Moab, had hired him to curse Israel, but God ensured he could only bless the nation. Balaam prophesies in Numbers 23:21: “He has not observed iniquity in Jacob, nor has He seen wickedness in Israel. The LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a King is among them.”

 

 

Through Balaam, God explains why He could not curse Israel as Balak desired. He essentially says that He had chosen to overlook the sins of Israel because of what He was working out. We can readily see an example of His sparing them in the Exodus Passover, where God “passed over” the sinful nation to fulfill His promises to Abraham. God is not saying Israel was without iniquity, only that He had chosen not to focus on it. He would not curse Israel just because Balaam or Balak asked Him to.

 

Teruah appears in the last half of the verse: “The LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a King is among them” (emphasis ours throughout). This couplet contains an example of parallelism, in which the two phrases express the same idea. The word “shout” shows a common usage that can help us appreciate this holy day: Teruah—which is shouting, the blowing of trumpets, or the splitting of the air with an arresting noise—draws attention to the presence of God. Of course, we understand that He is always present, but the deafening noise, from whatever source, draws attention to the reality of His presence.

 

 

In this prophetic utterance, God says He is with Israel, and His shout—the noise that cannot be ignored—rings among His people. Thus, on Yom Teruah, this Day of Trumpets or Day of Shouting, we remember His presence because the sounds of this day should capture our attention and redirect it to what the King is doing. It is a highly effective way to begin the fall holy day season, focusing God’s people on the right things because it is nearly impossible to ignore a noise like teruah describes.

 

Remember, in the prophecy, God is explaining why He is defending Israel, even though His people were really not any better than their neighbors. In many ways, they were worse because they were accountable for much more. God defended them simply because of His faithfulness to Abraham. On that basis, the shout of rejoicing went up because the Creator God was their King and in their midst, favoring them.

 

 

God in the Camp

 

 

Scripture contains other examples of shouting that are linked with God’s presence:

 

 

And when the ark of the covenant of the LORD came into the camp, all Israel shouted [teruah] so loudly that the earth shook. Now when the Philistines heard the noise of the shout [teruah], they said, “What does the sound of this great shout [teruah] in the camp of the Hebrews mean?” Then they understood that the ark of the LORD had come into the camp. So the Philistines were afraid, for they said, “God has come into the camp!” And they said, “Woe to us! For such a thing has never happened before.” (I Samuel 4:5-7)

 

 

The Ark of the Covenant represented the presence of God, and when the Israelites saw it, they all began to shout. Their response was fitting and correct because their divine King was among them. However, the rest of the story reveals He was intensely displeased with Israel and gave the victory to the Philistines.

 

 

This episode occurred when the sons of Eli had disgraced the priesthood, and God had largely removed Himself from the nation. The Israelites thought they could use the Ark like a good luck charm. They trusted in a holy object, not understanding the principle of reciprocity in their relationship with God. As He told King Asa much later, “The LORD is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you” (II Chronicles 15:2). So, the neglectful Israelites presumed to bring God into battle with them, and He fought against them. The shout of the King was among Israel, but God’s presence brought destruction rather than favor.

 

 

I Chronicles 15 contains another example:

 

 

Thus all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the LORD with shouting [teruah] and with the sound of the horn, with trumpets and with cymbals, making music with stringed instruments and harps. (I Chronicles 15:28)

Again, the presence of God was celebrated with shouting, both by the people and by their horns and trumpets. King David had finally followed the correct procedure for moving the Ark, which required it to be borne by priests with solemn dignity rather than jostled along in a cart like a bundle of hay or other common possession (II Samuel 6:1-11). God’s presence evoked a tremendous audible salute from His people.

 

 

The Triumphal Entry

 

 

A well-known prophecy, fulfilled at Christ’s first coming, also contains the theme of shouting that accompanies God’s presence:

 

 

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout [ruwa], O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.” (Zechariah 9:9)

 

In this prophecy, the shouting by the people of Zion/Jerusalem would be on account of their King coming to them, bringing salvation. It is another example of shouting because the King was present among His people.

 

 

Jesus Christ fulfilled this prophecy of the Messiah entering Zion on a donkey during His triumphal entry into Jerusalem:

 

 

Now when they drew near Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me. And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.” 

 

 

All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: “Tell the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your King is coming to you, lowly, and sitting on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.’” (Matthew 21:1-5)

 

 

Yet it was not just His riding on a donkey that was fulfilled; the detail regarding shouting also came to pass. A tremendous cry went up from the people. Whether they recognized it or not, the multitudes were announcing the presence of their King:

 

 

Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: “Hosanna to the Son of David! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!’ Hosanna in the highest!” And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, “Who is this?” So the multitudes said, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee.” (Matthew 21:9-11)

 

 

The King—the Son of David—was in the presence of the multitudes, and they were crying out—they were shouting, as was only fitting. Of course, He had been among them for three-and-a-half years, and His presence did not evoke shouting everywhere He went. His entry, however, was an extraordinary occasion to draw attention to the fact that God was present and something significant was happening. He had been among them for half a prophetic week, healing, teaching, warning, and performing signs, but now His earthly work was almost finished. He fulfilled Zechariah 9:9 by entering Jerusalem on a donkey in the lead-up to the covenant memorial of Passover.

 

 

Acknowledging Their King

 

 

For those with eyes to see, what was happening was as plain as day: They were shouting in celebration, honor, and recognition of their King. As Zechariah prophesied, He had salvation for those who would accept Him. Hosanna, a transliterated Hebrew word, is a plea that means “save now” or “save, we pray.” The people were shouting, “Save now!” while their King entered Jerusalem with salvation. They took the words they called from Psalm 118:25-26, a Messianic psalm.

 

 

Some had made the connection, but not everyone was pleased:

 

 

Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, saying: “‘Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD!’ Peace in heaven and glory in the highest [echoing what the angels shouted at His birth]!” And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” But He answered and said to them, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.” (Luke 19:37-40)

 

 

As was their custom, the Pharisees were offended at Him because they felt threatened. Since they focused only on their own positions, they could not see God. Jesus answered them with a declaration that if His people failed to shout, the stones themselves would take up the cry!

 

 

Part of His statement deals with the creation—whether men or stones—rightly praising Him as the Creator. Shouting was not just fitting but absolutely required on this occasion. His words about stones crying out may also refer to Habakkuk 2:11, a prophecy of woe against those who covet unlawful gain, those who feather their nests at the expense of others, something He accused the Pharisees of doing (see Matthew 23:16-26). In that verse, God says, “The stone will cry out from the wall, and the beam from the timbers will answer it.” In other words, the stones and other parts of the house would cry out as it crumbled on the occupants. In this case, Jesus’ words were both a defense of the people’s appropriate shouting in His honor and an allusion to destructive judgment upon a wicked house.

 

 

Blessed Is He Who Comes . . .”

 

 

Christ Himself foretold the people’s shouting the words of Psalm 118—“Save now . . .. Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!” He uttered the prophecy during His final journey to Jerusalem:

 

 

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were not willing! See! Your house is left to you desolate; and assuredly, I say to you, you shall not see Me until the time comes when you say, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!” (Luke 13:34-35)

 

 

He was still some distance from Jerusalem when He prophesied that the city would not see Him until the citizens proclaimed the words of Psalm 118. When some of them indeed shouted, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!” He entered Jerusalem on a donkey as their King with salvation, thus fulfilling Zechariah 9:9.

 

 

Though some welcomed Him, His reception by the religious authorities was entirely hostile, and as He foretold, their house was left desolate shortly thereafter. They had searched the Scriptures after a fashion, trying to gain eternal life for themselves, but their rotten hearts would not allow them to see that the Scriptures testified of Jesus of Nazareth.

 

In the same way, many religious Jews today observe the Day of Shouting without acknowledging that the shouting points to the divine King, Jesus Christ. And as Jesus prophesied, they will not see Him until they proclaim, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!”—that is, until they acknowledge Him as Messiah.

 

 

Zephaniah 3:14-17 contains a yet-to-be-fulfilled prophecy of future Israelites turning to Him and receiving salvation:

 

 

Sing, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! The LORD has taken away your judgments, He has cast out your enemy. The King of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst; you shall see disaster no more. In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: “Do not fear; Zion, let not your hands be weak. The LORD your God in your midst, the Mighty One, will save [they will cry out ‘Hosanna!’—‘Save now!’—and He will answer]; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”

 

 

What will it be like when the King Himself joins in song with His singing and shouting people? What a magnificent day that will be!

 

As God said through Balaam millennia ago, the shout of a King has been among them, but most of them missed it. But we greatly anticipate the day the shout of the King breaks forth again, which Psalm 47 anticipates:

 

Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples!
Shout [ruwa] to God with the voice of triumph!

For the LORD Most High is awesome;
He is a great King over all the earth.

He will subdue the peoples under us,
And the nations under our feet.

He will choose our inheritance for us,
The excellence of Jacob whom He loves. Selah

God has gone up with a shout [teruah],
The LORD with the sound of a trumpet.

Sing praises to God, sing praises!
Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
Sing praises with understanding.

God reigns over the nations;
God sits on His holy throne.

The princes of the people have gathered together,
The people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
He is greatly exalted. (Psalm 47:1-9)

FIRE BY NIGHT 

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

 

"Reflections Upon Reflections" 

 

[of The Father's Heart] 

 

 

...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 

 

 

 FAITH "HELD TO" Words of prophecy: * Unbelief "corrodes" [erodes] faith. "corrode" - to eat or wear away gradually as if by gnawing; to impair; deteriorate; "erode" - "to eat into or away; destroy by slow consumption or disintegration; ...."for we walk by faith [revelation], not by sight [feelings - or lack thereof]".... 2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB 

 

 

...."These are the ones who are beside the road where the word is sown; and when they hear, immediately Satan comes and takes away the word which has been sown in them. "In a similar way these are the ones on whom seed was sown on the rocky places, who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy; and they have no firm root in themselves, but are only temporary; then, when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately they fall away. "And others are the ones on whom seed was sown among the thorns; these are the ones who have heard the word, but the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things [that are apart from God's Will] enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful".... Mark 4:15-19 NASB 

 

 

...."So we see that they were not able to enter [into His rest], because of their unwillingness to adhere to and trust in and rely on God [unbelief had shut them out]".... [Num. 14:1-35]".... Hebrews 3:19 The Amplified Translation Fear "held to" [maintained] contaminates faith. Faith [which is both energized and activated by Love] "held to" [maintained] obliterates fear. "contaminate" - to make impure or unsuitable by contact or mixture with something unclean, bad, etc. "obliterate" - to remove or destroy all traces of; do away with; destroy completely; ...."For what I fear comes upon me, And what I dread befalls me".... Job 3:25 NASB ...."I sought the LORD, and He answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked to Him and were radiant, and their faces will never be ashamed".... Psalms 34:4-5 NASB ...."God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love [trust], and of a sound mind".... 2 Timothy 1:7 Young's Literal Translation 

 

 

...."There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) [revelation of ] love turns fear out of doors and EXPELS every trace of terror!".... 1 John 4:18 The Amplified Translation Prayer of Proclamation: Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a "fearless" people - a people of faith, whose sole desire is the carrying out Your Will/Word. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen. ...."faith, if it does not have works (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead)".... James 2:17 The Amplified Translation 

 

 

...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are taking every thought captive [through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB

 

This is for All people in the whole world . . . :

John 3:16

King James Version (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Scripture Prayers of Salvation

 

 Pray the following out loud:

 

John 3:16 … Thank You Lord for loving me so much that You gave Your one and only Son, that when I believe in Him I will not perish but have eternal life. I believe in Jesus with my heart and I ask you to forgive me of all my sins. I renounce satan and all his works and ways, I choose the truth and disavow satan and all his lies. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord.

 

Romans 10:9-10 … Thank You Lord that when I confess with my mouth Jesus as Lord, and believes in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved. I believe in my heart and accept You as Lord. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord.

 

Isaiah 45:8, 2 Tim 2:10 … Thank You Lord that salvation will spring up within my heart, that I may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory. In the name of Jesus Christ.

 

2 Peter 3:18 … Thank You Lord that I may grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus Christ.

 

Psalm 19:10 … Thank You Lord that I may grow to find Your Word more precious than much pure gold and sweeter than honey from the comb. In the name of Jesus Christ.

 

Psalm 42:1-2 … Thank You Lord that You will create within me a hunger, a longing, for You and Your will. Set my heart flames a fire in love with you. Reveal yourself to me. Make me to love you as you love me. In the name of Jesus Christ. Yeshua

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
