We Must Seven Ourselves to His Covenant

I don't know about anyone else, but the LORD has been faithfully ordering and directing my steps through His word this past year, and preparing me for what I believe is a divine appointment with God our Father.

It all started last September when the Holy Spirit prompted us to set up an altar of stones, which we did. Then the Holy Spirit pressed upon me to deliver a word to my brothers and sisters in November about what it means to be a living epistle, revealed to us in Romans 12:1, 2.

Then in December, He begins to speak about the covenant that He made with David in 2 Samuel 7:1-29. It was at this time when I was fasting and praying before delivering this word, which the Holy Spirit began to make known to me that not only was He leading us into all truth, but He was revealing unto us the mind of God.

We are the house that the LORD of hosts promised David to build for His name. This promise was fulfilled when the Son of David, Christ Jesus our Messiah took His seat on the throne that is established forever. The LORD of hosts has written His name upon this house, and will soon cause His great name to be made known when the Shechinah glory and holy presence of God fills His house.

In Haggai 2:9 it declares saying: "The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former', says the LORD of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,' says the LORD of hosts.

And 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20 says: Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.

I then had a dream; I was living in a log cabin in the mountains and was receiving friends. My friend and her husband arrived, and he quickly left her and I, standing in the Kitchen and living room area, to go out on the front deck.

I told her that my other friends had already arrived and that I was going to take them all on the train on a moonlight ride through the canyon pass. As the five us later that night boarded the train and as it started moving, I looked out the window and noticed that the moon was as bright as the noon day sun. It was like daytime, and everything was so clear and beautiful.

I awakened from the dream, and immediately began to pray for the interpretation.

The Spirit of the LORD led me to Isaiah 30:18-26 and 29:17-24 In spite of the judgments, the LORD desires to bless His people. The day is quickly approaching when the people will hear the teachers, the prophets who have been sent by God; and will not rebel, but will walk humbly as they are being led by divine guidance. O what a sight to behold when idolatry is truly forsaken, and true worship wholeheartedly embraced!

For on this glorious new day that the LORD has made, we will rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for even nature will be in harmony, as God's glory outshines the sun; And the LORD our God commands the blessing .

Praise the LORD for He is good, and His mercy endures forever.

Rejoice, again I say rejoice, for the deaf will hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness. And the humble also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. Therefore thus says the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob:"Jacob shall not now be ashamed,Nor shall his face now grow pale; But when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst,They will hallow My name, And hallow the Holy One of Jacob, And fear the God of Israel. These also who erred in spirit will come to understanding, and those who complained will learn doctrine."

On this day, the church will be powerful and fast, moving just like a train unceasingly through the earth.

January arrived and the Spirit of the LORD again began to speak of covenant, this time it was the Abrahamic covenant, which also was closely tied or better stated, bound to the Davidic covenant, which again comes through the precious Seed, who is our LORD, Christ Jesus.

I began to deliver the word that the Lord had given me, explaining how Abraham is the father of all believers, and how we are all joint heirs with Christ.

Then in February the LORD again began to talk of our responsibility; and the sacrifice that Father God desired. I was also praying at this time for the fire of God to fall and to flow as the river of fire, so that they would be baptized in the river of His holy fire.

I began to speak again on Romans 12:1, 2 only this time using the example of Abraham, and his willingness to offer his only son Isaac, who was the son of promise, the blessing of God that was now to be offered up to God as the burnt sacrifice upon the mountain of the LORD.

What are you trying to say to us, my LORD?                                                                                           Are we too being tried of God?

I sensed God’s displeasure, when He said, this is the sacrifice that was pleasing to Him, this was what He desired! Now my LORD, cause me to understand the perfect will of God our Father. I sensed that something must be wrong, we, “I” must have erred in my understanding of His meaning, His plans and purposes in this hour.

Led by the Holy Spirit, I began diligently studying again, not only the Covenant that God had made with Abraham in Genesis 15, but this great test whereby God tried Abraham’s faith in Genesis 22. It does not reveal to us that Abraham protested to this great command of God. Nor do we see any signs at all, of what would have been the greatest struggle or battle that he must have ever fought with his flesh, in order to be obedient to the will of God. I would have to think, that if God had commanded me, or us, to do the same thing today, many would begin to rebuke this spirit, believing that it must be demonic. Or perhaps that satan was coming as an angel of light, trying to trick and deceive us, into committing murder, even the murder of our own child!

We see that Abraham did not question God, rather he faithfully obeyed.

I began to praise YHWH Yireh, The LORD our provider, who gave to us His only begotten Son, Yeshua - Christ Jesus, the Lamb of God; who is the Lamb that was sacrificed, whose blood was shed for the remission of our sins. Amen

In March I received a visitor, who blessed me with a truck load of meat. I was shocked!

And then the LORD God spoke saying, I have delivered to you the meat, now feed my people the meat.

What is meat?

Meat is divine revelation that comes to us from the throne of God our Father, by the Holy Spirit; and it is food for those who are spiritually mature. It is wisdom for those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. For we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known they would not have crucified the LORD of glory.

But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, and the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For who has known the mind of the LORD that they may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ as is written in 1 Corinthians 2-16.

It was then that the Holy Spirit revealed that indeed He was making known to me the heart and mind of God our Father. I began by separating myself from the world and anything that would hinder or distract me; and I began a forty day fast. It was through this fast, that I learned what the LORD meant, when He said my food is to do the will of the Father. I also was made aware, that the more I feasted on this sacred bread of life, the more it was being made flesh in my life. I began to hunger for more, as I began insatiably, devouring His word.

It was then that the Spirit of the LORD spoke to me again saying:

But to you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; And you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves. You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day that I do this, says the LORD of hosts. I was led in the Spirit to Malachi 4:2, 3, where this word was written. It is the divine revelation given to us through His prophet, declaring the Great Day of God which will come upon the whole world.

As we study this chapter, we learn that again we have been given divine instruction from the providence of God, concerning the state of recompense and retribution that now lie before us. As the LORD makes known to us that which is about to unfold, concerning the wicked and the saints of God. Even though this prophecy was given to us in the Old Testament it too just like the others pointed to the Messiah, and spoke of the destruction of Jerusalem, and the unbelieving Jews who had rejected the Gospel message of Christ.

It also gloriously reveals the sheer joy and happiness of those who did believe and receive the gospel. It is here that we must pay close attention to what the Spirit is saying to the church in this hour, for we too are directed to have our eyes firmly focused on receiving divine revelation, and a heart that is quick to respond in faithful obedience, even as our father Abraham was when he too was led by the divine providence of God.

As we move in faithful obedience to God’s word that is now ordering our steps, just as it is written, He will continue to make known to us more of His perfect will.

Malachi delivers this prophetic word that makes known all that will unfold as the dawn breaks on this awesome and terrible day of the LORD. It will be a most peculiar day in and of its self, as it will be two fold, a day that only the LORD could make. For to some, it will be the darkest day they will ever face, as the storm clouds of God’s judgment begins to rest upon their heads. Just as in the Old and the New Testament, it is Christ who is a consuming fire to those who have rebelled against Him. And this day will be as a fiery oven, ready for the day of His wrath, and fiery indignation against them.

In Psalm 21:9, it reveals:
Thy hand shall find out all thy enemies, and shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of thy anger.      Indeed it will be a day of great terror and destruction that has not been since the days of old.

And Isaiah in 10:17,18
The prophet makes known unto us that the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame, and it shall consume the glory of his forest and of his fruitful field. For those who have refused to repent and allow Christ to reign and rule as LORD over them is about to discover the error of his ways.

This fire comes to test the works of man, if they be wood, hay or stubble, they will be consumed.    However, if they be gold, silver, and precious stones, they will abide in the fire and be purified by it, as confirmed in 1 Corinthians 3:13-15.

But to my faithful remnant, you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness shall arise, with healing in His wings.The LORD says, that He will be a rejoicing light to those who fear His name, those who faithfully serve Him, and give the glory and honor due unto His name.

Those who truly stand in reverential awe of the splendor of His majesty; which the wicked and unrighteous have mocked and trampled under their feet. How appropriate that these chosen ones whom the LORD has made to be the righteousness of God, in Christ Jesus, would be the ones whom the LORD would use to trample the wicked. They who carry His sacred and holy fire, that same fire will turn them into ashes under the soles of their feet.

For Christ having disarmed principalities and powers made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or Sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ. Amen Colossians 2:15, 16.

He said that we would grow fat like stall-fed calves, what is the meaning of this, I asked, the LORD?

These are those whom the bright and morning star has arisen in their hearts, from where His sovereignty reigns supreme. These are the precious stones that have grown up wise, and have been restored to wholeness; perfect health and true liberty. It is upon these rare and precious souls, that the Son of Righteousness arises and causes them to increase in their knowledge, and grace, and spiritual strength.         It is by the divine grace of God that they are being made to be even more prudent and wiser, as they grow up into the perfect man. It is these that tread upon the sacred path that is said to be that of the rising sun, for it shines more and more to the perfect day. Proverbs 4:18.

Which is why it is said that their growth is compared to that of stall-fed calves, which is a quick, strong, and powerful growth. You shall grow great in flesh and fatness, which shall be useful for replenishing not only of  God’s altar but the tables of men as well. Causing the saints of God, those indeed whom the Sun of Righteousness has arisen upon, to not only glorify God the Father, but their fellow btrethren as well.           As their hearts begin to overflow with the fullness of the joy of the LORD; the rise up singing songs of praise, to the One who causes them to triumph. For It is He, who has commanded them to go forth, a conquering and to conquer; It is the LORD of hosts who causes them to be victorious over all their enemies. For the wicked have been made to be Christ’s footstool, and now theirs too.

When believers by faith overcome the world, when they have subdued and have taken dominion over their own corrupt natures, with all of its lustful desires and evil passions, it is then that God bruises satan’s head under their feet, and they are said to tread down the wicked one, even as the fiery heat, of the day of the Lord, turns them into ashes under the soles of their anointed feet. As the Lord, by His Spirit, leads them from victory to victory, and glory to glory, let us all shout with a voice of triumph, and shout with a heart of praise to God most high, who has made His righteous justice to not only be made known through their destruction, but has been glorified, as the glory of the LORD begins to cover the earth. Amen.

It is April now, a new season is just springing forth, and yet again, the LORD was talking covenant!

This time however, He led me to Exodus 24, where Israel affirms the covenant with God.
Are we to reaffirm our covenant with God? Hum! I thought that we had already done that?

Anyway, this is the covenant of Law, and we are under the covenant of grace, and are the children of the promise. I could not figure out, what, or why in the world He now led me here.

Again I prayed for grace, and for the Spirit of wisdom to guide and direct me.

The LORD in His mercy, by His Holy Spirit, began to bring forth to my remembrance that everything was a type and shadow of Christ, who remember was hidden in the old, to be revealed in the New.

With that in mind, I began to study Exodus chapter 24, praying for the Holy Spirit to make known unto me, what God was saying to us.

Indeed, we are to reaffirm our covenant and to seal it with the precious blood of the Lamb of God. For God provided His only begotten Son, as the perfect sacrifice. It was the shedding of His own blood that provided atonement for our sins. It was His holy blood that was sprinkled upon the people to seal them, and was used to seal the new covenant of grace as well.

My heart indeed is filled with gratitude, and praises of thanksgiving, again to the One who made a way for us all to enter into God’s presence with boldness. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. Hebrews 6:19, 20.

It was here that the promises of God began jumping off the page, and that if I was obedient to that which He was even now commanding, He would perform His covenant word with me, “US” today!!!

It was then that I noticed something, which I had really never saw before. It was Moses, Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel that went up on the mountain of God, in verse 9-11. And they saw the God of Israel. And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone, and it was like the very heavens in its clarity. But on the nobles of the children of Israel He did not lay His hand. So they saw God, and they ate and drank. Even though they were men, who were not only sinful, but were even quite obnoxious to God, and having every reason to fear the splendor and glory of God’s majestic presence. They did not become undone, as Isaiah had. Nor were they overwhelmed, to the contrary, they were strengthened, so that they were enabled to bear His glory.

When God tells us to come up here, He has something to tell us, how many truly tremble with a holy fear, knowing that are God indeed is an all consuming fire. And like He has revealed, hay and stubble will not stand before Him. It is by the LORD’s loving kindness and tender mercy that we are not all truly consumed.

What truly amazed me, was that they all saw God; and did eat and drink with Him. They fellowshipped and had communion with Him on the Mountain of God!!!

They not only had their lives preserved, but their strength, faith and courage was greatly increased as well. The divine favor that God bestowed upon them, not only blessed them, but filled their hearts to overflowing with the Joy of the Lord, as He, Himself raised them up on high.

It was there that they feasted upon the blessed sacrifice, not only with Him but even before God most high, all in token of their cheerful acceptance of His covenant that they had made with Him, even as they joyfully received the promises and great benefits that were freely bestowed upon them through their divine communion with Him.

It is written, that believers eat and drink with Christ at His table, in Luke 22:30.

Let us all bless the Lord; and offer up praises of thanksgiving, for blessed are those that shall eat bread in the kingdom of our Father, and drink of the new wine there. Amen

It was then that the Lord led me back again to Exodus 24, and made me to see with understanding that this was the birth of the Israelite church.

He also began to speak of the first fruits offering. We were also quickly approaching the day of Pentecost, which is also known as the Feast of weeks that would begin this year on the eve of my birthday.

The day of Pentecost is celebrated by all Christians, as this was the birth of the New Testament Church, the body of Christ. I am led by the Spirit to 1 Corinthians 15:23-28 where it is written:

But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. But each one in his order: Christ the first fruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming. Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. “For He has put all things under His feet.” But when He says “all things are put under Him,” then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God be all in all.

Lord, My Lord, is this the hour, as you said this before earlier?

Whenever God says it twice, then we know it will soon come to pass.

In Romans 8:18 Paul proclaims saying: For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits 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; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now, Not only that, but we also who have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit makes intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; Whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

As the day of Pentecost was now upon us, I was expecting an awesome move of God. God always does something special for my birthday and what better than Joel 2 now coming to life in all of our lives!

What happened was I had no sooner finished praying for the LORD to bless and confirm His church, when I had unexpected visitors again.

The amazing thing was, that the LORD had just had me in Luke 9 & 10, and told me to receive His alms?

Well, I looked up alms in the dictionary and as we know it is charity and also that which is given as compensation for pay. A laborer is due his pay. It was a group of men that filled my freezer with food.
Again I stood in awe at the awesomeness of our God, who indeed supplies for all of our needs. Amen

It is now June, and the LORD began speaking to me about the altar being defiled. As I prayed, He revealed to me that the people’s hearts were divided. They come to His altar and they are all lip service but their hearts are far from Him. This would not be an easy message to deliver. For not only were their hearts divided but they had allowed seducing spirits to come in among them, and these false prophets began preaching their lies on the altar of God. The bible gives us a clear warning that we are to be very careful who we come into agreement with. When we entertain evil spirits, we begin to stand not with God, but rather in opposition to Him. Remember, our God is a jealous God, and He will not share His glory with another! He wants our whole heart or none. Amen

September arrives and we are reminded that this month ushers in the Jewish New Year, and the high holy days.On the 9th Rosh Hashanah begins a glorious New Year, and the feast of trumpets or ingathering, begin to blow from sunrise to sunset. It is a time of celebration, a time to reflect on the faithfulness of our Lord who has delivered us through another year.

Again, faith is stirring in my heart; and I pray, LORD, gather thy people to You even now in this hour. As we move from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur, the day of atonement. Which is from the 9th to the 17th it is a time to reflect, a time to judge ourselves. It is a time to repent, and to remember, all that the LORD, Christ Jesus has done for us.

He was the Lamb of God who came to take the sins of the world away. It was His blood that was shed for the remission and atonement of our sins. It is the hour to turn our hearts wholeheartedly to God our Father.

Now is the Feast of Tabernacles, which began at sundown on the 22nd and for 8 days they slept outside in booths, huts that were made of tree branches as they remembered their small beginnings, and how the LORD God had faithfully led them through the wilderness into the promised land.

It is time for us to worship our God in spirit and in truth.
It is time to sing praises to His name, for His name is great and greatly to be praised.

It is time to thank Him, for how far He has truly brought each and every one of us.
It is time to exalt the LORD who made a way for us when there seemed to be no way.
For sprinkling upon us the precious blood of the Lamb, which has enabled us to enter into the presence of God our Father with boldness.

It is time to thank Him for choosing not only to tabernacle with us, but to abide mightily in us, this house that He created for His glory.

Yes, my brothers and sisters, now is the hour to praise the LORD our God; and to ask Him to write His name on this house, and bless it with the fullness of His shechinah glory and most holy presence.

It is time, says the Lord, that we seven ourselves to the Covenant of Abraham, and seven ourselves one to another. For the LORD is about to command the blessing, and desires to perform His covenant word with His beloved children.

To seven ones-self means to bind completely.

In Genesis 26:3 It is written:
“Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. When Abraham made a covenant with Abimelech, he gave him 7 lambs which were a witness to the agreement they entered into at Beersheba, which is translated to mean, the “well of the Seven.”

It is now that I hear the Spirit prompting me to sing to my well!

“Yes, I exclaimed!”

In Numbers 21:16, 17 the LORD told Moses to “gather the people together, and I will give them water.” Then Israel sang this song:

“Spring up, O well! All of you sing to it.

It is time for the children of light to arise, and ascend the hill of the Lord. For Just as Christ was transfigured on the mountain of God, so too will we be transfigured as well.

Like I stated earlier, when I described my vision on the mountain, and the train, and the moon, the (church) that was shining as bright as the sun. When we have bound ourselves completely to Christ Jesus, who is the word made flesh, then we will shine as bright as the noon day sun (Son), because the sun (Son) has become sevenfold. Isaiah 30:26.And the church will be glorious, quick and powerful, as she moves unceasingly, just like a train across the earth. Amen

Blessed be the LORD of hosts, bless His holy name. For to Him be all the glory. For His is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever.

In the name of the LORD, Christ Jesus
"I bless you."
