“Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field
which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman,
“Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden?”
Surrendering to greatness:
While listening to Don Potter’s rendition of “I Surrender All,” I again asked the Lord, “What does it really mean to do greater works than You?” Jesus is the One who gave this promise and commanded it. This secret can be found in John 14:12-14. The surrender God was bringing to the forefront was not only the surrender of will but also the willingness to rule with Him while yet on this earth.
The invitation to dare advance into a place of Kingdom governing authority; hence, bringing nations into their highest potential was extended to the human race from the days of Adam and Eve. This invitation did not stop with them, but was meant to and has extended through to the book of Revelation, where John saw and scribed not only,
“The Kingdoms of this world
will become the Kingdoms of our Lord and Christ,
and He will reign forever and ever,”
but he also described the depth of our identity resurrected. He included the details of ‘earth’s revolution,’ triggered by The Lamb’s weighty blood poured out, pulverizing and abolishing sin.
“To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood,
He has made us to be a Kingdom,
priests to His God and Father
to Him be the glory and the dominion
forever and ever.”
John also spoke of God transforming us into rulers who would choose to reign with Trinity upon this earth.
“Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection;
over these the second death has no power,
but they will be priests of God and of Christ and
will reign with Him for a thousand years.”
From the time of the first creation:
As the question of “greater works” was being pondered, my thoughts turned to the chronological order of some of the main events occurring from the time of the First Creation.
Four events to be exact:
1. The gross corruption of God’s earth and skies through the fallen cherub lucifer.
2. The six days of the creation and alignment, including all God had given Adam and Eve to partake of and have dominion over.
3. Jesus coming to earth abolishing the results of the eaten fruit of the tree of good and evil. This having instigated man-made religious systems.
4. Christ commissioning His followers; disciples becoming Apostles and followers becoming evangelists, all harvesting the harvest as the Angels gathered. This known as the first world wide harvesting of nations. Truly, a family was coming into the palaces of Father.
Golden Harvest Field:
Wow, I can see it now. Around 65A.D was it? The spirits of mankind were awakening to their true place in royalty–learning about their true identity. Can you see the marble floors of the courtyards of heaven. So beautiful. There souls were so hungry to learn of this Way–The way, the truth, and the life. I can see fields in Asia Minor, one particular. There is a young man, in this vision, who is listening to one of the evanglizers, with such a hungry, internally excited, inquisitive expression. He has just learned of this Kingdom of Heaven and of the King who loves. He has just learned of the invitation to become part of this family. His entire being is realizing that he is a son to the Living God. His entire being is being transformed out of darkness and coming into the Light of the House of God. He has now entered and desires the “knowing” of “how to walk out his daily life”. He standing in the midst of such a beautiful field of golden wheat, ready for His “becoming.”
With just these four briefly shared chronological dimensions of change upon the earth, what would the fifth sphere–stretching of the tent include? Where are we now? Is it possible that promotions to rule and reign governmentally with Him among the nations, is in the inauguration stages now ? Taking ownership not only to live a holy life, not only to preach and teach the TRUE Word of God, not only to succeed in impacting the economy of currency, but also stewarding the true wealth of earth and heart itself (the land and her raw materials). The Golden Age?
The wealth of an individual and nation is not only the dollar bills invested in banks and in home hidden vaults but, genuine wealth is the commodities found in the earth. This may already be a late article in the scope of how the nations are responding to the ownership of natural resources within their own borders (Africa, a true example of the earth’s wealth being bought out by other nations who are comprehending the value). But, it’s not too late, neither for the four to five generations alive today nor for the generations to come. There is always room for growth, transformation, multiplication, redemption, resurrection, and hope within every generation . God is God of Life, not of a dwindling down kingdom system.
As a Watchmen/woman and/or marketplace cultivator, it is our responsibility to know who owns the natural resources found in our nation. To know with whom our nation’s have contracted the wealth of national raw materials is important. In the years to come these partnerships must be wisely formed for the success of our nation politically, it’s governing powers, economic growth, and the well being of those whom we share citizenship with. The Babylonian system will be overcome as creation’s value within a nation is honored and cared for.
King David and Solomon stewarded wealth, it’s value unmatched today. Their wealth was based on the metals, minerals, and other raw materials mined from the earth. Tudor Bizmark taught us years ago that David’s tithe would take at least 2 buildings filled to capacity of gold bars. The church today has yet not reached the wealth standard which God has emulated for us through King David and His reign.
The womb that was kidnapped to seed the bankruptcy of bondage:
So, why would I talk about the serpent next? Follow along … Almost there…🏁🚙 The crafty serpent of Genesis intended to flatten-smooth out the flourishing vegetation and land wealth which God had created for His family. This reptilian creature chose to cause grief by instigating the questioning of, “the truth of God’s boundaries,” making bare the ‘heartland’ of Eve and Adam from golden fiery glory to the wastelands of doubt. He knew that if he could deplete the ‘heartland’ of those given dominion (those created for love, communion with God, and dominion in the earth), the serpent could then attempt to transfer his own personal demise (hell’s wilderness) into the earth. The only way that he this jealous conniver could accomplish such hate is by enslaving Eve to join him. For if she did she would unknowingly give him the womb he needed to seed into her the bankruptcy of bondage.
Coffee with Emil & dialogue-ing’s together:
If God didn’t’ drive Adam and Even out of the garden of Eden after sin entered their hearts, they would have remained and touched the tree of life. Once they made contact with LIFE itself the transference of it’s fruit would have caused them to live forever, becoming like God. This would have occurred while they were still in their state of disobedience. They would not have been able to partake of Redemption. It was God’s grace to remove them from eternities atmosphere.
Satan’s wrath, manipulations, jealousies, and fear of ‘forever damnation’ demanded his conniving powers to destroy Christ’s younger brother and sister. He thought he won. He thought his actions of spewing his fiery anguish into a strategy of ‘flattening humanities potential to that from the banqueting tables of heaven to the floor of “eating the dust” of the wilderness’, won. Because satan’s temporary “win,” was lodged in Adam and Eve’s mind, God sent them out to cultivate the soil of the earth. From earth they came. They would now choose the invitation to govern and cultivate not only the soil of their hearts, but also the soil of the earth, from whence they came.
From the traumatizing exit from Eden until the entrance of the Rescuer Christ Jesus Himself, the redemption story was working it’s way into the earth. Jesus would come pulverizing sin into dust; washing it away for all mankind. He would provide them with the Living Tree of Life to eat of.
The manufacturer of sin himself will find no food to eat except the dust of iniquity itself. His tormenting movements along the floor of his manufacturing fields called ‘hells wilderness,’ would provide him with the ashes of sins torments. Reptiles lick the dust of such a place resigned to darkness’s demise. He will find no food nor entrance onto the highway of holiness which leads to the families terraces. “It is Finished!”
Jesus Christ of Nazareth’s sacrificial blood pouring out for all mankind and for the earth’s redemption has FOREVER separated us from the ploy of sin and death. Now, all we need to do is believe and act on the delivered invitation.
The fruitfulness of our heartland affects the natural land around us. The earth can sense when people have given their hearts to God. Their actions of loving their God, and caring for the earth has an effect on the land. Paul scribed to the church in Rome, Italy saying,
” The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God,
and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ,
if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time
are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly
for the revealing of the sons of God.
For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly,
but because of Him who subjected it, in hope
that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption
into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
For we know that the whole creation groans and
suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit,
even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons,
the redemption of our body.”
Romans 8: 16-23
Sons and daughters of God have responded to the invitation, and allowed the placement of His Seal to set them apart, and are receiving the fire of His Holy Spirit’s character. They have said, “No” to the conniver. They have consecrated their lives for reigning with the King of Heaven’s Kingdom, through choosing union with Christ and tasting of His sufferings. Both sons and daughters of God are being formed by their Teacher, Holy Spirit Himself. Through the Grace and Mercy of God, craftiness of the serpent will not able to win the war with these fiery ones.
The places of barrenness, are being swept out of their minds–dissolved by the living testimony which shouts, “cultivated by His love.” Within the heartland of these who have chosen the path of the Garden of God hidden prosperity will bloom . Spirit led repentance through the powerful currents of Christ’s blood is often pursued, and within His forgiveness the ‘revealing of His sons and daughters’ will be testified of by the restoration of earth’s soil.
What was a subtle deception alive in the wilderness of the heart, has lost it’s sting and God continues to search for those who will walk with Him in the cool of the day; not only refreshing their walk with Him, but bringing healing back into the soil of their nations. There are those who will take the land seriously enough to consider, refocus, and engage the wealth of the earth. The sustaining force of their determination will come from the truth that the heartland of one’s spirit is the place of immunity; a garden large enough for two, us and He who walks in the cool of the day.
“If you address as Father the One
who impartially judges according to each one’s work,
conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth;
knowing that you were not redeemed
with perishable things like silver or gold
from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers,
but with precious blood,
as of a lamb unblemished and spotless,
the blood of Christ.” 1 Peter 1:17-19
The Middle East in all of this:
Because these biblical events took place in the Middle East, the ‘first mentions’ of the Middle East’s geographies and topographical conditions are important to follow. The progression of earth’s story can be found in these lands. Representation of earth’s health and the symbolism of what these regions represent are important to understand. This, for the true comprehension of what is taking place within current affairs today. His story is written from these lands and involved these regions.
As we look throughout scripture it is clear that the middle eastern nations depict the fulfillment of biblical prophecies and can be understood through the lens that God has created. Instead of allowing the world’s media to impact our viewing lense, it is an act of honoring God, man, and self to perceive and act upon God’s opinion rather then manmade assumptions.
He created a strong people who are called to overcome the dust of the wilderness and to steward the land as God places water in the deserts, flowers and trees in regions once known for their desolation. He formed, named, and loved a people group who would overcome the wall of the “reptilian” accusers. It is a hard place to live. It is an endeavor which takes courage (word of their testimony), humility, submission to God’s life and love (blood of the Lamb) to overcome the strength of the one who crawls along hell’s floor.
The larger story is that the courageous royal tribes found in the deserts of Arabia will in their redeemed chieftain state return their lands to God, stewarding the earth and also their personal heartlands. The gold of Sheba will return and come into the House of God. The Rams of Nebaioth (Ishmael’s first born and descendents) will ascend onto the altar of God. The provisions of the Arab family (dromedaries) will be offered as an incredible gift to God, and at that time God will choose to glorify His House. Isaiah 60
The saying is “even as Israel goes, so goes the church.” I want to add to this. “Even as the Arab nations go, so goes the harvest and it’s progression.” Israel and the Arab nations will always live next to each other. They will always hold similarities and a contrast. BUT, those who cross over into the HARVEST, will become TOGETHER, THE ONE NEW MAN!! Brothers having conquered, through the gift of Messiah’s sacrifice, the iniquities found in the wilderness of hell and have crossed over into the promised land of God’s heart.
