reminiscing of 1607, 1620, 2019-2020
“Thus says the Lord, “Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; and you will find rest for your souls.”
On Wednesday, March 18, 2019, one month before Passover; unbeknownst to me, I was about to be given a history lesson. This time God would be the Teacher. Standing overlooking an ancient city in Israel, the Lord spoke to me. His voice was so clear, like a friend standing next to me conversing.
God said, “My dreams of more then 400 years, for the United States, will now begin to be fulfilled.” My response was, “Lord, I didn’t know America was that old. 400+ years?” Puzzled, the filing cabinets of my memory were now opened and quickly I thumbed through dates. The Bicentennial Celebrations of 1776-1976 were not so far from memory, marking the USA’s 200th Birthday. “We hadn’t jumped that many years, had we?”
“Even those who traveled to the shores of the United States of America did not understand the fullness of what I planned for them, and My dreams for this land.” the Lord continued.
He then opened my eyes to see a portion of His dreams for His Kingdom dominion to be not only demonstrated, but to become part of the culture and way of life in this land. I could see the brilliance of His Glory upon the pioneers (glorious), and how the limitless wonder of transfiguration had yet not been comprehended, seen, therefore embraced; yet, He was excited to see such wonder conceived in this land.
The age of the nation was still puzzling me. 244 is the known age of the nation according to the Declaration of Independence. But it seems that God perceives the birthing of a nation differently. Kind of like how He marks the birth of a child at the moment of conception. He knows us as He weaves us in the womb of our mother; so too He knew the United States as He wove her together from 1607-1776. 413 years at the least. The Lord heard the questions of course and suggested a call to Jolene and Jonathan Hamill. I texted them while in Israel, on the 18th, and through a phone conversation began to learn about the beginnings of the nation and was reminded of Plymouth’s history. Junior High History must have really taken a back seat in my personal memories.
Along with this, I realized that Passover would be April 19 to the 27th in 2019, which would cover the 413 Anniversary of Cape Henry. This the place, where later Chris Mitchell would teach us of the pioneers who would not even move through the land until they had fasted and prayed for 3 days, followed by their second act being to pierce the land with a large cross made from the ships post. It is true, the Ancient Path in the United States leads to the Cross of Christ.
400 years!!! What does that remind us of? Why has the Lord made Communion such an important mandate since January 2019? Why is He saying that His children need to revisit the power, life, and voice of His blood for 2019 onwards, as we have passed thru the gate of a new Era of time?
Each nation carries a personalized message; however, within the Kingdom of God it is the same worldwide. 400 years marked the end of a bitter season of slavery for the Jews and those who chose to follow the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They had to leave behind the mindset of slavery of the tyrannical pharoahs and the gods of Egypt, crossing the Red Sea on dry ground.
Wilderness dwelling is not necessary. God’s Son has already poured out His blood for us. The promised land is where we live. His blood forever announces, “Forgiven” as it rests upon the mercy seat. He gave His life so that we can live. We are called to live through the One who arose into resurrection power, Life not only flows through His veins BUT He is LIFE itself!!
Kingdom Dominion available to pursue by anyone courageous enough to be embraced by Gods love!!
The United States today, 11-11-2020 will celebrate 400 years of the signing of the Mayflower Compact. The desire and dream of the people? To live with freedoms to worship God. God’s dream? There are many, but the one He spoke to me? ‘His Kingdom dominion to be not only demonstrated, but to become part of the culture and way of life in this land.’ This can be done as we fully embrace His reality of the Law of Grace in Christ Jesus.
Happy Anniversary United States of America!!!
Freedom is in your DNA, created by God.
He loves to dream and see dreams come to pass!!
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.Romans 8:11But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, “ YET ONCE MORE I WILL SHAKE NOT ONLY THE EARTH, BUT ALSO THE HEAVEN .” This expression, “Yet once more,” denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.
