I have not been that regular with the blog but the messages preached have been regularly updated to the site, so those regular to the site will still have the latest. I have a lot of requests for Fatherly Talks but have not restarted it yet. Will do so at some point in the future when there is more time available (after delegation of some organizational work). Also for those requesting the online Bible school, it is in the process of being re-organized.
Lately, the Lord has been speaking of the imminent change that is coming (part of it shown earlier this year in the prophecy for this year 2011). When it comes, it will be suddenly and not expected by many. Also the time for the vision of the black car is at hand.
The Lord gives and the Lord taketh away (Job 1:21) This verse is controversial to the faith movement because it advocates that the Lord completely does not take away but only the devil. It is true that all sicknesses and disasters are caused by the devil but the Bible does show that God does take away: God took from Moses part of His anointing on him when he complained that the burden was too heavy for him and shared it with the seventy elders (Numbers 11:14-17). God took the kingdom from King Saul and passed it on to David (1 Samuel 13:13-14). God did emphasized that if he had been faithful, God would have established his kingdom forever (1 Samuel 13:13). God took ten pieces of the nation of Israel and gave it to Jeroboam (1 Kings 11:31). Since we know and believe that it is never God who causes evil and disaster among men, then what exactly is it that God took away?
It is God who allows and imparts dominion and authority to men (Daniel 2:20-21). This includes those who know Him and those who don’t. Pontius Pilate, when boasting of his power and authority, was corrected by our Lord Jesus, who pointed out that it is God above who gave power to men (John 19:11). Yes, it is our God and Father in heaven who gives men all authority and power. Nebuchadnezzar had to learn the hard way that even he was subject to the mercies of heaven (Daniel 4:23-26, 32). The lesson to be learned is that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men and gives it to whomever He chooses. This applies whether it be earthly kingdoms or principalities, or fame or wealth or wisdom or influence. Every good and every perfect gift has always comes forth from our God and Father who gives generously to all men, giving rain on the just and on the unjust (James 1:17; Matthew 5:45). It is not merely human effort that allows a man to achieve what he wants in life, it is both a combination of faithful human obedience and God who gives the open doors and opportunities. There is no such thing as a “self-made” man or woman. It is just a foolish man or woman who did not acknowledge the work of the angels and God on his behalf. Such do not last long on the earth nor in eternity. If such people boast in themselves, then the same would happen to them as to Nebuchadnezzar, although through different circumstances. There are angelic watchers that watch over the affairs of mankind (Daniel 4:23).
Having understood the above principles, there is a movement on the earth whereby authorities, fortunes, and fames are being shifted by God and His angels. From those who like Nebuchadnezzar had boasted in themselves to those who are humble and have the heart of God. Always choose God and walk with a perfect heart to recieve your portion in this life from God. It is God who sets up kingdoms and raise up kings. What is yours can never be taken by men. Only God has the power to remove them. At this time in the world, we are seeing a seismic shift of fame, fortune and power. The dust will take a few years to settle and then all will see clearly the positioning of God for the endtimes. In times like these, it is important to spend time in the closet of prayer and wait upon the Lord. Be faithful to all that God has asked of you no matter how small. Faithfulness in small things will lead to opportunities in bigger things from God.
God strengthen you and establish your feet on a firm foundation, Ps Peter
