This weekend has been a transition from doctrinal discussion, to the point where we are at now, and what direction we should look.
I posted a documentary about the largest and fastest growing Church in the world ? right now…. and the ground was not seeded by Evangelists…. these people never even had or have Bibles.
A 2-hour long video about the underground Church in Iran has opened eyes to what is truly our commission and our portion as Believers and followers of Messiah. And that is Maranatha.
For those who have not seen it I highly recommend you watch and make sure you watch right to the end.
But most importantly remember the new peace agreement? Where is this peace now? we truly need to stay in our Bibles and understand where we are in Prophecy.
Enjoy today’s teaching it is very Timely.
IN GOD’S TIMING
” Here, today you have seen with your own eyes that Adonai put you in my power there in the cave. Some of my men said I should kill you, but I spared you; I said, I won’t raise my hand against my Lord, because he is ADONAI’S anointed.”
SH’MU’EL ALEF (1st Samuel) 24 :10
While Saul refused to trust Adonai’s promise in defeating the Philistines, David trusted Adonai in all things. He was already anointed by the prophet Samuel as the next king of Israel when he fought Goliath, but it was years later that he was officially crowned as Israel’s King.
The Bible tells us of two opportunities David had to kill Saul and place himself on the throne. The first was in a cave where David and his men were hiding. Saul slipped in to relieve himself and David snuck up behind him and cut off a piece of his robe. The second time, Saul and his men were camped in a field, and while they were in a deep sleep that Hashem had induced, David and his comrade, Abishai, crept into the camp to where Saul was sleeping. They saw his spear stuck in the ground beside him, and Abishai was eager to kill him with one thrust of that spear.
Both times David was urged to kill the king and this second time, he said to Abishia ” don’t destroy him! Who can lay a hand on Adonai’s anointed and be Guiltless? As surely as Adonai lives, he said, Adonai himself will strike him, or his time will come and he will die, or he will go into battle and perish. But Adonai forbid that I should lay a hand on His anointed ” Sh’mu’el Alef / 1st Samuel 26: 9-11.
They then stole away with Saul’s Spear and water jug. From a Hilltop a safe distance away, David yells out, assuring Saul there was no need to fear him.
Had David acted out of self-interest, his relationship with Hashem would have suffered great spiritual turmoil and Israel would have been plunged into Civil War. From a worldly standpoint, killing Saul may have seemed like the safest and most strategic measure, but David refused to act independently of Adonai. This did not make his life any easier, as Saul continued to hunt David down, and for about 14 years he remained on the Run. Hashem had promised David the throne, and David trusted Adonai would give it to him. It was during these times, hiding out in caves and hillsides that David wrote many of the Psalms that Grace the pages of scripture!
Waiting can be difficult, especially in dangerous circumstances, but Hashem’s promises will always come to pass.
I pray that many of you watched the video ” sheep among wolves ”
And through prayer get divine revelation of what Adonai is doing.
Because it has nothing to do with what we see on the news! Patiently waiting…. is what we do as we hide under the umbrella of protection as we stay in close relationship with our Creator. Fear is a tactic of the enemy to cut the umbilical cord between us and our Heavenly Father.
This is why it is repeated through scripture over three hundred and sixty times “DO NOT FEAR “.
If we are to learn anything from the example of the Apostles…. it is how they struggled with unbelief until they witnessed the resurrection.
We have been given a gift that lives inside of us! We need to listen to that still quiet voice that speaks and directs us. He may not fulfill them in the timing we hope for, or in the way we expect, BUT HE FULFILLS THEM!!
David waited for God’s timing and when Saul died in battle against the Philistines, he took the throne and rained 40 years over the nation of Israel.
Tribulation is a time of testing; Saul did not pass the test! But David did no matter how much he messed up he always stayed in relationship, and obedient repentance!
May this message follow you through these difficult times ahead!
Help me to wait on Your timing,
Help me to not take matters into my own hands,
You know what is best,
And I submit to Your plan and Trust Your Promises!
Thank You Adonai Amein
