God’s going to make a covenant with us that He will remove those things that would try to pull us in a wrong direction so we can walk in the rest that He wants to give those that are in the earth. Not the world, the earth. He’s going to break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth. Not the world. Because the world is not going to enjoy living in the supernatural.
Probably the most important thing for us to realize and know is the reason God created the heavens and the earth. He was looking for a people who would choose to fellowship with Him. He has lots of angels who He created to do a particular job, but with His forever life I believe the reason He created humans is to have fellowship. He came walking in the garden where Adam and Eve were and I believe they fellowshipped that way for several hundred years. Throughout scripture the thing that really irritated God is that man wanted to live by his hands. In the Bible it’s mentioned several times that they shall sit under the vine and the fig tree. The fig tree is one of the most comprehensive foods, in that you could live on the nutrients of it. If you go to Israel the figs are very sweet and it doesn’t take many to fill you up; they’re good and very satisfying. The vine represents being knowledgeable and happy. Today, because there’s no peace in mankind on the earth because of sin, they misuse what God intended to be a joyful thing. Jesus promised that He would not drink of the vine until He brings His bride into the marriage feast. At that time we’re going to have a good time drinking wine because there is no need to excessively do any of that. So what man has rejected is the supernatural. Because the devil lets you do whatever you want, that keeps you from enjoying the presence of God. People have lost their focus upon what true joy is. True joy is not being driven. Being made in the likeness and image of God gives us somewhat of an idea what God is like. We look at it in the fallen state, but God lives in a pure state. Where truth is, there is peace. You’re not driven in your flesh, but what drives you is the joy of the Lord. Bitterness, anger, and all of those things are gone; they won’t be in heaven.
I want to start in Isaiah 11:4, But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins. The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. In the thousand year reign, knowledge of the Lord is going to be throughout the land because satan is defeated and under our feet and he won’t be an issue. That’s where our labor is – to bring that to a close. I believe we are fast approaching that place. Verse 10, And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. The rest is walking in the supernatural and living in the supernatural. Verse 11, And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. Let’s look at Revelation 7:1, And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. Then God sealed a hundred forty four thousand. What He said in Isaiah 11 and also here in Revelation 7, is that He’s going to gather. And those scriptures are for the very end times. The seven spirits or seven eyes of God will come about in that time period. We are in that time Isaiah talked about. As we go on, you’ll begin to see that very few people have any desire to know anything about the seven eyes of God. They don’t care. We are a people that are in the middle of the end time fulfillment of the scriptures because we have the seven eyes and then the multiple eyes that are second to none. Just that in itself is an extreme honor that we have been given. If you choose to walk in these seven eyes, you’re going to see a great result with this message. Going back to Isaiah 11, we start out being introduced to the seven spirits of God, with the fear of the Lord, being the 7th, which is the last church in Revelation. We have walked through all of those aspects of qualification to be used mightily in this transformation from six thousand years of man being in charge to one thousand years of ruling and reigning with Christ where the wicked will be nothing and God’s people will be everything. In verse 11, the second time to recover the remnant was done in 1948. Then He’s going to set up an ensign, or a standard. Judah and Israel were dispersed throughout the world and He gathered them back up 70 years later. They were dispersed again in 75 AD, and since 1948 He has been calling them back. So we’re in the second calling of Israel to come back to their homeland, and now they are fighting for their lives because satan doesn’t want that to happen. Anything that God has prophesied, satan is trying to stop because he knows that if it happens, his head is about to come off. Verse 14, But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them. And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod. And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt. That highway is the warfare of letting loose and making a path that is secure and safe in God by God’s army making that highway possible.
Isaiah 12:3, Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. Let’s go back to verse 9 of chapter 11 again, They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. Not everyone will know the knowledge of God; only a remnant. Yet, it says that all that are in the earth shall know the knowledge of God. So there is something in the earth that we don’t fully understand until we have the knowledge of God. In the earth there is a fellowship between heaven and earth that is not in the world. The earth is a place where the wicked, or the world, sees a bag of corn seed and says, I can put that in an acre field and I could get two hundred bushels of corn out of that field. And I could take my money to the bank and I’m happy. Now what does that sound like? That sounds like Cain. Cain came with grain and gave it to the Lord and said, this is what I did and I am giving You a portion of it. Ok. Who made the seed? Who made it rain? Who made it germinate? Who told it how to grow up and put an ear on? Who put the tassels up there? God did. Do you know what? We can live in the supernatural on the earth. Not in the world, but on the earth we are living in the supernatural. If you are living in the supernatural, in everything you do, you’re praising God when you see these things happen. Have you ever heard me talk about how a stalk of corn grows? What was I doing? I was fellowshipping with God the Father on the earth, who is the creator of it and we are those that take care of it. So God is giving us food through this supernatural. But you have to get off of your fanny and do it or you don’t have it. Now, I’ve introduced it to you and we’re going to look at it more. God is providing food for us. There are twelve trees on the river that flows from the tabernacle of God. Every month one of those trees produces fruit. All you have to do is go up and pick it and eat it and take care of it. That’s what we do, too. We plant trees and whatever they were called to produce, they labor all summer to do it. I gathered up some walnuts and I’m looking forward to hulling them and getting them dried down. This winter every time I crack a walnut I can say, Thank You Lord. You made that walnut for me. I love them. I’m fellowshipping where the world doesn’t. They don’t honor what God’s doing. In fact, in Romans 8 it says that the earth is waiting to be delivered from having to feed these ugly, rebellious people. It’s looking for the day it can just bear fruit for God’s people. The wicked are done.
Isaiah 12:5, Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. I’m not talking about being a tree hugger, I’m talking about people that love the Lord and see the creation. Verse 6, Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee. Look at what He’s doing! Isaiah 13:9, Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. God is tired of giving you supernatural food and you don’t acknowledge the Creator, the One that’s giving it to you. Isaiah 13:6, Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. He’s done with the people that don’t want to acknowledge Him, but use evolution and whatever they can come up with other than acknowledging that God is the One doing it. Verse 10, For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; There’s not going to be many men left; the women will choose a husband before gold. …even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger. The heavens and the earth are going to be shaken like a tree that is shaken and the fruit falls off before it’s ripe. That’s the wicked. He’s going to shake them out of the heavens and the earth and they’re going to go where the world goes, which is total destruction. Verse 14, And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land. Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword. Just think of what’s happening now. We have been a productive land and we have opened the gates and let the wicked and rebellious come in and it’s going to shut down the prosperity of this nation. Verse 16, Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished. What’s happening in Israel right now? Verse 17, Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it. Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children. And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there. But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there. And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.
Revelation 5:9, And they sung a new song, saying, thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever. Those that live on the earth in the heavenly places, that’s what’s coming. The Lord spoke a few months ago and said, as you see it now, it’s not going to be that way forever.
Zechariah 4:6, Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. Who art thou, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. As long as we stay faithful to our labor, the devil is not going to send nuclear power to kill us. Russia does not have the spirit of God in it, nor does China. With us realizing that it’s going to be done by God’s spirit, which we are at peace with, all will be well. We can walk in peace knowing that God is in charge of heaven and earth and we are His co-laborers working to achieve the same purpose, the will of God, because we have the seven eyes and multiple and are increasing even now with a new eye. Verse 10, For who hath despised the day of small things? For they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth. We can see what’s going on. When we get into that place of the earth, God will show us, and we will have knowledge of the earth and the heavens. When I spent three months fellowshipping with the Lord, my focus was to know Him; He took me and showed me many parts of the earth that nobody has any clue about. They don’t know how the crops grow and how things stay alive. There is a block of energy, which is called the heart of the earth, that supplies every living thing that grows from the ground. With the sunshine, and God’s rain, and the heart of the earth, we live and survive. That’s the way God created and wanted it to be. Because we have a hunger to know God, He has shown us these things. And what He’s doing right now is showing us more about the earth and the heavens.
Let’s look now in Hosea. The children of Israel were in total rejection of God and walking in whoredoms. Whoredoms are the deepest sins of man. That pretty well describes the United States today, especially in the inner cities, and it’s horrifying. Hosea 1:6, And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And God said unto him, Call her name Lo-ruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away. But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the Lord their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen. He’s going to do it by His spirit. God’s not going to save by having atomic weapons and destroying the wicked. He’s going to destroy them by His spirit. Verse 8, Now when she had weaned Lo-ruhamah, she conceived, and bare a son. Hosea was a prophet and God told him to marry a prostitute. What would happen if I said, God told me to go get a prostitute and have children with her? Boy, they would really have something to talk about then. But that’s what God told Hosea to do, and God somehow protected him from all of her garbage that she had. Hosea 2:1, Say ye unto your brethren, Ammi; and to your sisters, Ru-hamah. Plead with your mother, plead: for she is not my wife, neither am I her husband: let her therefore put away her whoredoms out of her sight, and her adulteries from between her breasts; Lest I strip her naked, and set her as in the day that she was born, and make her as a wilderness, and set her like a dry land, and slay her with thirst. And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they be the children of whoredoms. For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink. What is that? That’s the world. That’s not the earth. That’s not living in the supernatural. Verse 6, Therefore, behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths. God is saying, I’m going to build a wall of thorns so she can’t get to where she wants to go because she’s not acknowledging that I’m the one who has given her all this. Verse 7, And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them: then shall she say, I will go and return to my first husband; for then was it better with me than now. For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal. Wow. That’s the mind of God and how He sees things. God gives you things and you don’t fellowship with Him much. You’re too busy making things with your own hands. The Lord spoke to me one time years ago and He said there’s been many times I wanted to give you things but before I had the opportunity to give them, you went out and purchased them yourself. Verse 9, Therefore will I return, and take away my corn in the time thereof, and my wine in the season thereof, and will recover my wool and my flax given to cover her nakedness. What does that sound like? It sounds like a drought. One time he sent seven years of drought. And that seven years of drought and famine came when Jacob and his sons were in the land. So they realized that it’s God that feeds them and He wants them to walk in the supernatural. They wanted to kill the one that was going to help them (Joseph). Verse 10, And now will I discover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, and none shall deliver her out of mine hand. I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her Sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts. And I will destroy her vines and her fig trees, whereof she hath said, These are my rewards that my lovers have given me: and I will make them a forest, and the beasts of the field shall eat them. God said, I’m going to destroy her vines and her fig tree. We’re supposed to have peace under the fig tree and the vine. But she wasn’t of the earth, therefore God was angry. Verse 13, And I will visit upon her the days of Baalim, wherein she burned incense to them, and she decked herself with her earrings and her jewels, and she sent after her lovers, and forgat me, saith the Lord. Is that pretty clear? Verse 14, Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her. And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt. And it shall be at that day, saith the Lord, that thou shalt call me Ishi; and shalt call me no more Baali. For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name. And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely. That’s the covenant He’s going to give His people that are laboring to bring us into the thousand year reign, which is the Sabbath rest. God blessed the seventh day and He rested from His work. So for a thousand years we’re going to enjoy what He wanted us to walk in before Adam and Eve sinned. And He’s going to make a covenant with us that He will remove those things that would try to pull us in a wrong direction so we can walk in the rest that He wants to give those that are in the earth. Not the world, the earth. He’s going to break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth. Not the world. Because the world is not going to enjoy living in the supernatural. Verse 19, And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies. That’s the covenant. I will betroth you unto Me in righteousness, and will help you make the right judgments, in lovingkindness, and will be merciful unto you if you’re not quite understanding how to do it. Verse 20, I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the Lord. The biggest thing God hated was that the people never really knew God. Verse 21, And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, saith the Lord, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth; And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jezreel. And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God. He’s going to plant us to do the right thing, just as He did the kernel of corn. We’re going to grow up and do what God has called us from the foundations. Isn’t that incredible?
Hosea 4:6, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame. Do you think there is any danger if you are walking in the world and your hands are doing it, that you will take the credit for it? You’ll take the credit for it and that is your signet ring of look what I can do. Instead of look what God has given me the giftings to be able to accomplish what I’m doing. You can be Cain or you can be Abel. Abel came with the lamb and said, Lord, I’m giving You back this lamb and I’m going to sacrifice it. Somehow God is able in the spirit to eat the flesh of certain animals. He won’t accept the world, but He will from the earth. That’s why He won’t pay any attention to children that have been brought up in whoredoms. But He will bring covenant to those that want to walk in the earth and acknowledge that God is God and He created these things and we are just caretakers of what He has commissioned to give us supernaturally.
As we enter into worship we need to open our hearts and give the Lord thanks for all the things He has done that we’ve taken for granted. It was God that gave it to us and we are just caretakers. We walk in the supernatural and God has fed us very similarly to the children in the wilderness. It was just a different way of doing it. You see we are different than the world. The world sees us different, but they don’t want to change because they are fearful they’ll have to give up something they like. You give it up to walk in great abundance and peace, now and forevermore.
