TIME TO LIFT…!
(Tokunbo Beulah Johnson)
“In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and all nations will stream to it. Many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” – Isaiah 2:2-3, NIV
As the days of man wear on towards the end of time as predicted by Christ Jesus, certain changes (political, economical, etc) are taking place on the global scene. The spiritually discerning knows quite well that it is God at work but the carnal man lives perturbed and in distress of these global unfoldings.
As a Child of God, it is God’s desire that you live in full understanding of the times and seasons.
It is God’s Plan that His Church be elevated above the world’s crisis. Not that she does not live within the crisis but that she is immuned from being a victim as she soars above it in the Divine Protection, Divine Provision made possible by the Sovereign Hand of God.
I can tell you assuredly that only those in ‘Noah’s Ark’ will survive the present ‘Flood’!
This Elevation is being made possible through simple faith in the Risen Christ. It is why Jesus came: to make us the Mountain that cannot be shaken but held strong by the Power of the Holy Spirit received through faith in the Blood Covenant that Christ made for all who will believe in Him through His own death upon the Cross!
As the ‘Mountain of the Lord’, here are some of the things you should expect and believe God to be to the world?
- Be Visible, not Hidden. You must be visible. You are a Mountain. And all nations must be attracted to you. Settle for nothing less than to be Visible and Highly Lifted Up!
- Be Positioned in Value. God is making the nations ‘streamable’ to the Mountain. They have to come after you (the Mountain) in respect! Settle for nothing less than to be Highly Lifted Up till you earn your place among the greats!
- Maintain a High Altitude. The Mountain is higher than all other hills of human system. Your standard has to be higher than that of the world’s system. Christ is your Benchmark not men! Settle for nothing less than to be so Highly Lifted Up in Integrity.
- Be The Epicenter. The hills will learn the laws of God from the Mountain. You have to be willing and ready to instruct the world. Settle for nothing less than to be Highly Lifted Up to teach the world through your life’s example!
- Be A Cut Above The Rest. The Mountain of God is in a class of its own. God’s Word is coming out from Zion. The Church is Zion-Class! Settle for nothing less than to be Highly Lifted Up as a cut above the rest.
A radical restructuring of our mentalities from a ‘victim mentality’ is necessary to make all these happen.
In Jesus name, I declare that this day the Lord opens the eyes of my heart. That I may see Him high and lifted up. And till I become exactly as He is: Highly Lifted up above all situations and circumstances that may assail the world. Amen
