The Generation Israel

This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, who seek Your face.  –Psalm 24:6

God is the same yesterday, today and forever. His desire for communion with His beloved remains the same in every generation. God is searching for worshipers who worship in spirit and in truth. Such worshipers are those fully committed to fulfilling the great commandment. These worshipers shall love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength. Regardless of when we’re born, this is the will of God and the greatest calling ever given to mankind. It is why we exist. Not to lose sight of this high calling, every generation has a unique mantle placed upon it. There is a reason you are living today and not two or three hundred years ago. It is no mistake that you are alive in this day and age. God created you for His special purpose and He created you for such a time as this.

What has God appointed for you and for this generation?

“Thus says the Lord who made you and formed you from the womb, who will help you: ‘Fear not, O Jacob My servant; and you, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen.  For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your decendants, and My blessing on your offspring; They will spring up among the grass like willows by the watercourses.’  One will say, ‘I am the Lord’s’; Another will call himself by the name of Jacob; Another will write with his hand, ‘The Lord’s,’ And name himself by the name of Israel.”  Isaiah 44:2-5

We are living in a major transitional time in God’s divine plan. The Scriptures prophesy of the physical and personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ and the establishing of His Kingdom on earth. I believe we are quickly coming upon the generation in which this will happen. As the nations grow in wickedness, the Lord is preparing His people for the great harvest of souls to be ushered into His Kingdom at the end of the age. The Holy Spirit will quickly restore true apostolic ministry in the nations, which will in turn restore the church to its foundation of a pure and simple devotion to Jesus Christ, rooted and grounded in love and holiness. The apostolic ministry will also release the other ministries of the church into the full expression of their purpose. The restoration will be fully endorsed by the Holy Spirit’s demonstration of signs and wonders that glorify Jesus Christ.

In Acts 2, the Holy Spirit was poured out upon Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost, locally fulfilling the prophecy given by Joel. I believe in our generation we will see a global outpouring of the Holy Spirit unto the complete fulfillment of Joel’s prophecy, resulting in the most powerful manifestation of signs, wonders, prophecy and evangelism ever to take place on the earth. This will also coincide with the greatest trial and tribulation the world has ever encountered. Righteousness and love will mature in the nations, but so will wickedness and the heart of stone. In the midst of this dynamic generational paradox we will see many in the nations come into the saving knowledge of God, being transformed and matured by the Holy Spirit. Even more, while some hearts may turn to stone in this hour, many will become softened as they turn to the marvelous beauty of Jesus. The book of Romans states that this will cause the hardness of heart that is upon many Jewish people to soften, and they will be open to receive the Revelation of Jesus in an unprecedented way. Hardness of heart will not cease because of good evangelism strategies, but because their will be an outpouring of the Holy Spirit’s work to turn hearts to the Father before Jesus’ return. This means that the all-consuming fire of God will, at least figuratively, fall upon the whole earth as it did on Mount Carmel, when the Lord displayed that He is God in Israel and that He is turning their hearts back to Him.

Of Whom Do I Testify?

Of whom do I testify?
both priest and king
glory of heaven’s majesty; conveyed in humanity
the mystery of God,
walking among men.

Of whom do I testify?
Son of God and Son of man
His eternal dwelling a vacant seat so He could die a man;
the life He chose was one of scorn
a humble servant among the low.

Of whom do I testify?
both rejection and the glory; bloody cross and risen life
born to pay eternal penance, then lifted to the sky
forever the redeeming Judge
and slayer of the earth.

Of whom do I testify?
a Jesus in the grave?
No!…  I speak of the ascended priest
our sacrificial King.

He lived a life of suffering; restoring life to the souls of men
To reverse the curse upon the earth
Redeeming all the land…

…Now we wait for You to split the sky, this One of Whom we testify

We ask You, “Come for Your inheritance.  ‘The Kingdom and the souls of men’.”
