What Awaits Us in 2017- David Hauser
"Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight, when he bares His teeth, winter meets its death and when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again. Aslan is on the move."
C.S. Lewis - Under the Inspiration of Holy Spirit
"Rise up my love, my fair one, and come away, for the winter is past, the rain is over and gone, flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing of the birds has come...."
Song of Solomon 2:10-11
This morning as I arose, and looked at the snow on the mountains and the rain soaked land, I heard the Lord say, "The earth rejoices for I am on the move."
The Lord’s desire is to encourage the People of Faith, the Healing Rooms, and the Churches that this is not a time to lay down our arms but to move forward in faith; believing that this can be the greatest year of our lives.
Renewal is in the air, His restoration is on the cusp of what He wishes to do with us in the earth.
Last year man declared it a year of Jubilee and we saw a measure of success in the Kingdom, but the Sovereign Lord declares 2017 as His year of Jubilee.
I heard a Pastor say, "It's Time!" It's time to open the presents. When the bride is escorted down the aisle, the Father comes and says, "It's time." When the contractions start, the wife says to her husband, "It's time."
"So I gave you a land on which you did not toil and cities you did not build; and you lived in them and ate from vineyards and olive groves you did not plant. Now then honor the Lord and serve Him sincerely and faithfully."
I believe that God wants us to get rid of the gods of unbelief, fear, and depression. For the Anointed One is on the move.
A three-fold cord is not easily broken. Which means ourselves, our brethren and the Holy Spirit, walking in forgiveness, love and peace with each other.
The 7 in 2017 we all know means completion or perfection in Scripture.
I was led to look at Matthew 17:20 where it speaks of needing just a small measure of faith for all obstacles to be removed. Then I looked at Luke 17:20-21 where the religious and cynical were asking where is the Kingdom of God and Christ answered, "It is within us." God wants to release what is already resident within us; God knows it, the enemy knows of it, but do you, or I?
Finally, I looked at John 17:20-21 where Jesus’ last prayer was that they would be one as the Father and Son are one.
I believe the Lord is saying, that the release of the Kingdom comes from faith, as we walk in forgiveness and unity with each other. The result will be that "Every valley will be exalted, and every mountain will be brought low: and the crooked shall be made straight; and the rough places will be made smooth." Isaiah 40:4
For this is the promise that the Lord has made and who can refute it.
