Revolution III (3-5-09)
There are a couple of streams of prophecy to consider when trying to understand God’s current work. First there is the Israelite National stream and second there is the church as a bride. When Israel, speaking of the Northern tribes, was taken into captivity they were to be punished for 7 times according to Leviticus. That was 2520 years. This season ended with the signing of the Constitution in Philadelphia. The migration of the tribes and the forming of the western Christian nations is a subject worth study if you are ignorant of God’s control over history. There are many clues of why our nation is a product of promise. I will leave the large quantity of proof for debate another time outside this revolution discussion. The promises to Manasseh are fulfilled by the founding of this nation. Though God is very much about the perfection of His bride it is not at the expense of His promises to national Israel. If one reads the books of the prophets both major and minor the theme of rebellion – punishment – vanquishing – loss of identity – restoration – and relationship is clear. This stream is not in conflict at all with Christ work with His body. In fact when one is studied in both their symbiosis only confirms God’s control of history. In type of God’s work with this nation Hezekiah's son Manasseh was evil, punished, and restored. Manasseh the King is a shadow of Manasseh the tribe nation. This nation having lost its soul these last 3 generation has set the stage for God’s coming restoration as a side effect of His bride being glorified. The economic troubles have a two-fold benefit. One in that they humble a nation arrogant in its sin and two that out of suffering the liars will lie more and the people will become malcontent with the lie and the liars. This is an opening of the heart and eyes at the time a bride is loved and glorified. Though most will still hate God they will not lack a true witness and answer to their despair. We are being prepared by God both nationally and spiritually for a revolution of truth. Are you tired of living under the father of lies? If so what sacrifice are you willing to make for truth? Most want the status quo without change but the status quo is changing to be uncomfortable. When eagle chicks are ready to fly mom makes the nest uncomfortable. God is doing the same for this American Eagle. It’s time to Fly or die.
