No Time for Patience -Part 3-Paradigm to Wait

Paradigm Shift

February 3, 2012 – [02.03.2012]

Can you still trust Me when you seemingly have no outward joy in life, faint hope and trials that seem never-ending?  Will you wait upon Me and wait for Me when I am silent? 
Have you been in hiding or gone into hiding, just as Elijah was in hiding in a cave by the brook of Cherith?  Yes, David hid in caves as well.  Do you feel cut off from the world and everything worldly?  Do you feel cut off by others who have called themselves by My name?

Do you feel bound, hand and foot – desiring to go where I will send you, but unable to yet go, for I have not said where, when or how?  Do your hands feel inactive – desiring to do more, to do greater works, to be more empowered by My Holy Spirit? 

Do you feel that I have passed you over?  Do you wonder what you have done for Me that has pleased Me or been of any real significance?  Do you search your heart and weep because you seem so far from where you desire to be, or think you should be, yet you know that I have brought you far from where you once were?

Have you covered your mouth at times, unsure if you should speak forth that which is burning deep within?  Do you feel that when you do speak, it seems as though no one listens and those that do are few?   

Is your spirit heavy; are you struggling to speak life over the aching of your shattered heart?  Do you feel at times as if your light is hidden under a bushel and the weight of the bushel is too heavy to lift?
Does it seem at times like your candle has been snuffed out, or very weak at best?  In a moment of weakness, do you feel as though your holiness is defiled? 

Do you feel burnt out; sifted as wheat; misunderstood, unappreciated, profaned or weak?   Do you struggle within, desiring for it all to end?  Do you feel close to death or do you desire that your time here ends soon?  You have cried out like Job, like Elijah …

Let My people go, I spoke through Moses.  Unbind him and let him go, My Son Jesus/Y’shua spoke about Lazarus when he came forth from the grave.  Come out; come out from amongst them, My Spirit urges.

I have spoken to My people, come out of the tombs of the dead churches.  I have said to come out of Babylon; come out of Egypt; come out from the world; touch no unclean thing.  Be ye separate, for you are in the world, but not of this world.
As Lazarus, My people could not see ahead at first, nor were their steps sure.  Unbind them and let them go, I have said to the tormenting spirits.  Death must come, death to the old and you shall see My resurrection power in the new.

Shake off your heaviness and your multitude of sorrows, for I have not finished with My mercies towards you.  I shall be glorified.  When you bring forth in lamentation, sorrow and great labor, I shall give you rest, and ease your labor.

I shall strengthen you.  When you go into the field, laced by the woods, it is a place of solitude, yea, but you shall be shut in with Me.  Do not be afraid, nor let your heart be troubled.  I AM with you.  

For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands [Is 55: 12]

Travail and bring forth, for from the labor (great pain), miraculous victory is birthed.

Gethsemane and the Death Cry

In the days of His flesh, Y’shua offered up prayers and supplications with blood, sweat and strong tears, to Him who was able to save Him from death.  He was heard because of His reverence toward Me, His Father (Heb 5:7).

In Rev 12: 1, 5-6, you read where the woman flees to the wilderness, where she has a place prepared for her.  Cry out in your spirit, or even in your flesh and lament.  I shall be with you to bring you over to the promise; to bring you through to victory.  It is time.

There is a void in the hearts of the sufferers, there is a death cry that rises up from the lips of their spirit, yea, but I AM the God of salvation.  Sacrifice up the voice of praise and thanksgiving. 

Yea, death is a lone journey, as is birth.  When turning from sin to repentance, there is a deathly groaning, a cry that comes forth from deep within a man’s soul, a horror in his flesh, as he enters the valley of death.

I AM He who will comfort you in your suffering.  In death, there is inward travail and outward conflict – so it is in birthing, there is inward travail and outward conflict, as a great shift takes place.  Satan comes to destroy the victory.   He can appear as a pharaoh, as he did in Egypt with Moses. 

He can appear as a Pontius Pilate, doing as Pilate did with Y’shua, as he washed his hands, endeavoring to cleanse himself outwardly of any responsibility and guilt. 

Can you comprehend that Satan is resisting your victory?  He will oppose it to the limit of his power, for his power is limited by what I allow.  There is a line he cannot cross, and that is the line drawn with the blood of My Son.

Weep, Lament, Travail
Like as a woman with child, that draws near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and cries out in her pangs (outward conflict); so have we been in thy sight, O LORD. 

We have been with child, we have been in pain (inward travail), we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.  [Is 26: 17, 18]

    Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. (*note-compare with Rom 8:28)
A woman when she is in travail (inward travail) has sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child (outward conflict/birthing), she remembers no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. [Jn 16: 20, 21]

Jesus (Y’shua) travailed with My plan of salvation, for He knew the work, the suffering and the sacrifice that only He could and would make.  The Garden of Gethsemane (oil press) was the beginning of His labor, the beginning of His crushing; the beginning of His ‘pouring out’.   

Yea, travail is pain.  You must go through it all, in dying to self, yet I AM with you.  Only through travail and labor can new life be birthed; a vision becomes reality!  

     Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.

    Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? 
    for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. 

Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? says the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? says your God.   
[Is 66: 7-9]

Be in pain and labor awhile longer, you who are faint in spirit and weary of the pain.  Now you shall come forth, as Lazarus.  You shall dwell for a time in the field, amongst the trees… a place of solitude, yet the time of solitude is nearly over. (Think upon Job, Joseph, David)

Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shall you go forth out of the city, and you shall dwell in the field, and you shall go even to Babylon; there shall you be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem thee from the hand of your enemies. [Micah 4:10]

This is My Will 
Are you greatly vexed in your spirit?  Are you brought very low?  Do you feel so very alone? Have you come to the end of yourself?  I looked upon your misery and considered your distress.  I answer your prayers.   Have you not prayed, Not my will but Thy will, Father?

Hold fast and pray, for the day comes when you shall say, ‘It is finished’.  If you are full of heaviness, greatly humbled, mourning sorely, full of lamentation, let your lamentation be heard on high.  Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.  [Ps 22:11]

Bring forth with labor, for this victory is birthed after great sorrow.  Are you feeling very weary?  Bear up with good courage for that which has befallen you.  This is My will concerning you.  Arise and do!  Go through for joy comes in the morning.  

Remember Joseph who had been given two dreams with a great vision, yet everything seemingly (outwardly) went [appeared] wrong in his life from his youth until well into manhood, before the vision was birthed. 

It was birthed after great sorrow and laboring as a prisoner.  Having been hated by his brothers, sold into slavery, poorly treated, yet oddly respected ('his God is with him'), falsely accused of trying to seduce Potiphar’s wife and wrongfully imprisoned.  
He was seemingly forgotten by the king’s cupbearer, who promised to say a good word to the king on Joseph’s behalf.  To many, it seemed as though he were forsaken by Me.

From the time of man’s fall, this is (and has been) war, and there are endless battles, but I am the Lord of the battle. 

Is the altar of your heart broken down?  Does it seem that your temple has been destroyed and defiled by man (people)?  Does the inner place seem laid waste?  Is the music and the song of your heart put to silence?  

Does your rejoicing seem to be put to an end?  Is your candle put out, or flickering faintly, with barely any strength?  Do you feel your holiness has been defiled by the things you are exposed to in the world; things you hear and things that pass before your eyes?   

Yes, this is My perfect will for you, for I AM the Alpha and Omega; He who knows the end result from the beginning. 

For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall you be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: but you would not.

Quietness and confidence is found in trusting.  Repent and turn, turn, turn back to Me in quietness and full confidence, son…daughter, patiently waiting. Forgiveness is the fruit of My mercy and compassion, given to the contrite heart, and sin is cast into the depths of the sea [Micah 7:19

I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait, and in His word I do hope.  My soul waits for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.  [Ps 130:5, 6]

(End message)

Night watchmen are on the highest alert in darkness, in the hours of uncertainty. They know that the adversary loves to come when all is dark, using darkness as a cover to attack unexpectedly, in cunning, crafty ways.

They have to keenly watch and listen intently in the quietness (stillness) for the approach of the enemy.  They must be confident in God, ready to fight if necessary.

What shall we then say to these things?  If God be for us, who can be against us?  [Rom 8:31]

With great eagerness and at times with longing impatience, the night watchmen wait for the morning. It is in the light of day that all is revealed and they can rest, fully relieved.

They wait and trust for morning with anticipatory enthusiasm, especially when the night seems never-ending. They know with all certainty the sun will rise each day.
We too must wait in the quietness of our dark hours, guarded against the approach of the enemy, yet fully confident in God and all He has taught us. We can know with all certainty that what God has promised, He is well able to perform.

Even when the dark hours seem never-ending and impatience threatens to steal our peace, we must remain as confident and certain of God’s promises coming to pass as the night watchmen are of the sun arising and a new day dawning.

Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the day spring (new day; first appearance of light) from on high has visited us, To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. [Lk 1:78, 79]

The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and He knows them that trust in Him. [Nahum 1:7]

Hold fast to your faith, mighty warriors!

(This word is for someone - perhaps it is for a few 'someones')...
Stand fast! Yes, stand fast and wait upon the Lord. I know you have been shaken strongly, even sifted as wheat. I know you feel weak spiritually (exhausted). Perhaps you feel spiritually disoriented.

Fear not, be strong in Me. Rest in Me. Quickly you shall be strengthened if you wait upon Me. I am with you in this - yea, I am in all that concerns you. There are more battles fast approaching. War is coming.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. [Eph6:12]
You have done well in all the tests (gold is tested and purified), and in the trials (silver is refined), and in tribulations (times of preparation). Akita mani yo, mikola. [Observe everything as you walk, my friend]

Yea, I call you friend. You are My child, who has proven to serve Me with loyalty despite the attempts of the enemy to have you, 'Curse God and die', (Job's wife to Job) or even in, 'Has God said?' (serpent to Eve)

Then said his wife unto him, Do you still retain your integrity? Curse God, and die [the adversary wants you to give up] [Job2:9]

Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, has God said […]
[Gen 3:1]
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. [Lk 10:19]

You have stood fast and true, even in moments when you could not bring yourself to speak to Me due to shame and emotions, but your heart kept repentant, as did king David's. This is not the time to give up with unbelief.

You certainly believe that I can do all things and repeatedly, at given opportunities, you testify to My power. Your heart is after Mine and your heart is to obey. Too many say one thing and do another. Too many praise Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.

With Me, nothing is impossible [Mat 19:26] nor is My arm shortened that it cannot save. [Is 59:1] Yes, you do believe I can do all things, so would you allow unbelief to come forward to command you now? You shall not.
Warrior, through My Son, by His blood and in His name, you have been given all authority. Prepare for another battle. FEAR NOT, for lo, I AM with you. You shall walk by faith and not by sight.

Come near to Me for already you feel a stirring deep within your spirit. I AM preparing and have prepared you, teaching you all along, even in times of silence.  Speak life. My Word is a quick and powerful sword to use in every battle. It is a double-edged sword that cuts both ways.

The prophet that has a dream, let him tell the dream; and he that has My word, let him speak My word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? Is not My word like a fire and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? [Jer 23:28, 29]

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; [Ps 149:6]

Continue to trust Me as you rest in Me, waiting for Me. Strength comes. Unbelief dies as faith and obedience triumph! Let all things of the past go now and trust in Me, and as you rest, I shall strengthen you.
Now is not the time to give up in fear and unbelief, or quit in hopelessness.

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. [Ps 27:14]

Do not look back. Know that you and all that concerns you is in MY most competent hands.

And you shall love the LORD thy God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might
[Deu 6:5]
And the second is like, namely this, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. [Mk 12:31]

I tell you a truth. Be wise and fill your lamp with oil. In Me, you shall find strength to overcome and you shall be given white garments. Your name will be found in the book of life.

If you do not deny Him, My Son Christ Jesus will confess you before Me and before My holy angels.

When you are strengthened, go and encourage the brethren and do not tire of speaking to those who are lost and to set free those held captive. Do not be concerned with the look upon the faces.

My love in you must reach out to those in danger of damnation. The mercy I have shown towards you will grant you patience, and understanding. 

Now do justly and extend that same mercy and love to others, whilst walking humbly before me. [Micah 6:8] Run with the message that I give you and through it all, I shall be glorified.

Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
And He shall send Jesus Christ, who before was preached unto you.

[Acts 3:19,20]

Whosoever therefore resists the power, resists the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. [Rom 13:2]
