Conditions, yes the conditions which manifest themselves in the world humanity lives in today speaks to God’s remnant people of the times and season of God we find ourselves living in. Yes, these living conditions are an influence that desires to war against and convince these remnant people of God that the state of despair that controls this world is a mind-set that controls all levels of life. But, this is not so, for in the midst of the darkness of despair, a remnant people are becoming and manifesting a light, a great light, that shall, in a condition of never going out, change the course and the direction in which the carnal minded world has taken creation. In this, God has spoken in Isa. 29:22-24, “Therefore thus says the Lord, who redeemed Abraham [those who have received Christ are the true seed of Abraham], concerning the house of Jacob; Jacob shall not now be ashamed, nor shall his face now grow pale; But when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst, they will hallow My name, and hallow the Holy One of Jacob, and fear the God of Israel, These also who erred in spirit will come to understanding, and those who complained will learn doctrine”.
Generations have spent their lifetimes rebelling against God and His purpose. They, for the most part, have pursued the path of destruction by seeking to become their own image as they follow their own carnal mind. They are pursuing desired positions and following godless understandings in making a world for themselves, a world which has removed God from the equation. In this, they have erected great houses, houses that promote their own kingdoms of economical, social, political, educational, and religious activities. With humanity saying from within that these programs shall establish a world of peace, darkness simply increases as peace slips further away. Man considers his way as being the right way but it is only that which seems right unto the carnal mind, with the end resulting in destruction. Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.”
Therefore, this way of death is upon the earth and we are hearing a great cry; a great wailing is going forth from within a people who recognize the great fallacies that exist in societies arenas because of the mind-set of humanity and his carnal religious circles. These mind-sets have prevailed to influence society as a whole, to the point where governmental (federal, state, and local), have been passing laws that deny and/or profane the existence of a Father/God. The joy of having a happy home with loving parents and stable children has ceased to be the motivating factor of most of the homes. God’s presence, no longer desired, is the mind-set of humanity in general, one of being a god unto self. Self generally has the attitude that all things should evolve around selfish pleasures, wants, and desires. These pleasures, wants and desires, without God, leave a place of emptiness within, which in most cases lead to perverted activities which manifest in one form or another. Humankind must awaken to the truth that when fools become celebrities and crooks rewarded with fame as we see it happening today, we see the fulfillment of God’s word that declares of a time and a generation that shall call evil – good, and good – evil. Fools are but fools, which constantly think up new ways to do mischief. They leave behind them a harvest of wrecked lives and lies about God, while turning their backs on those as being the fools who are spiritually hungry and thirsty.
Meanwhile the so-called celebrities and rewarded crooks are the thieves, which become the corrupted deceivers who are expert in sin and scandal. They exploit the poor with swindles and lies and care nothing for the victimized poor. They lie in wait to deceive at every opportunity concerning the economical, social, political, educational, and religious arenas alike. Does this not rob the people of their heritage, while replacing it with deceitful laws and doctrines that take away their security in God? Yes, we see a society, which has become a place without any true safety with the righteous man finding himself and his loved ones dwelling among a wilderness of corruption that seeks to devour his loved ones and all that he holds sacred.
Yes, a cry does come forth, and this cry is moving the heart of God, as a destined change is taking place, and this change shall affect the entire world. Psalms 5:1-6, “Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. Give heed to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for to you I will pray. My voice you shall hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning I will direct it to you, and I will look up. For you are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, nor shall evil dwell with you. The boastful shall not stand in your sight; you hate all workers of iniquity. You shall destroy those who speak falsehood; The Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.” While the worldly-minded people groan, being in despair but not knowing why or for what reason, they continue in their own pleasures. Meanwhile the righteous groan also but theirs is a groaning for redemption, for the time of restoration, a time when the inheritance for God’s people shall be received and manifested. Rom. 8:22, “For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pains together until now.”
Yes, while this place in the wilderness continues, there shall be a coming up out of this wilderness the brightness of His coming forth within the saints. While God has placed the righteous in their place of maturing, this wilderness shall become liken unto a Garden of Eden. Hosea 2:14-16, “Therefore, behold I will allure her, will bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfort to her. I will give her her vineyards from there, and the Valley of Achor as a door of hope; she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt. And it shall be, in that day, says the Lord that you will call Me My Husband, and no longer call Me My Master.” As quoted above, in the wilderness there is a door of hope, The Valley of Achor is that place of redemption wherein the sins of Israel (likewise the church), were removed so victory could become their existence.
Among this world of trouble, what then is the position of the righteous man? A righteous man is the one who desires naught but the things that God has prepared for those who love Him. While darkness seems to prevail all around, there is a great light shining from within a people, a light that is to be brighter than the noonday sun. By turning to the light, we find a cry coming forth, a cry of repentance, which is the result of beginning to see Christ as He truly is. Hosea 6:1-3, “Come, and let us return [seek Him only] to the Lord; for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days, He will revive us; on the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His sight. [Is this not the third day from Jesus Christ]? Let us know, let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord, His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain to the earth”. The season we live in declares that there is a weeping and grieving which continues until the poured out Holy Spirit is upon us from the Father. Herein, the wilderness, the desert place shall grow crops and become fertile fields. Justice shall become the order, replacing these places of iniquity, and righteousness shall begin to dwell there in the fertile ground. Righteousness promotes peace, while peace births trust and holiness that becomes the fruit of our labor. Yes, God’s kingdom shall reign and our Lord and Savior is become our King.
A change, a great change is come. These carnal authorities shall suddenly be no more. They, these powers, in the time of their greatest signs of complete victory shall suddenly fall. They shall come down, as confusion becomes their daily existence in the midst of their defeat. Yes, they shall fall as the Christ is even now coming, He is appearing unto those who look for Him, and they are beginning to manifest His glory. These lookers and receivers are taking their place in preparation for this great event. The appearing of the Christ, through a many member body, His firstfruits, the man-child, is to walk upon the earth establishing God’s holy kingdom. All things shall be in their hands as no other authority can stand before them. Love and unity is now to reign as all darkness flees before that great and mighty light which God is in them. Can we not even now hear the call, the trumpet sounding from heavens portal declaring, “It is finished and the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdom of the Lord and His Christ.” Rev. 11:15, “Then the seventh messenger sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, the kingdoms of this world have become our Lord’s and His Christ, and He shall reign for the ages of the ages”. Zion (God’s kings and priests in His kingdom on earth) are established and Jerusalem (Christ’ bride) shall birth the ministry of God’s government, which is the law of His nature. The desert places shall joyfully fill the earth with song. There shall be the opening of blind eyes and deaf ears shall be unstopped. The lame will leap as the deer and the waters of life shall flow into the desert to become a place of holiness wherein sin shall never more abide. The singing of a song shall come forth with the joy of gladness, “We are the redeemed and have become His kingdom.”
