"Walk Through The Open Door"





Look up, O weary saint of almighty God, for the Lord has
 opened the heavens; breathe in His Glory  
You are His shining vessel, filled with His power, walking in
 His beauty, and you are now worthy



  Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, washed clean by His
 name and His Word; you stand tall in His light  
"Come out from among them," says the Lord, "and be separate 
 unto me;" climb higher with all of your might


For you are chosen and called out, holy and mighty in power 
and wonders, used in the portals of aura
You are no longer in the lowlands of despair, you have reached 
 the apex above the bitter waters of mara


It was a climb on your knees, fasting and praying for light to come, and I AM here, now, lifting you from darkness.  You have entered a new dimension, beyond your last glory, and your air is lighter; your joy is unharnessed.  The valley had you bound, but when your hands reached over the crag, you felt the newness and the beauty. Your strong endurance brought you here, with your sword and your armor; you went beyond the call of duty.


There are mysteries to unfold, exploits to render, and the Word 
to perform among the Nations for the Lord
It's a New Day, a new aroma in the portals of the Lord's presence, 
 and it's time for a New mindset and a New chord


The angels are restless, the trumpets are tuning, the hoofs are pawing, and the Lord searches to and fro.  He's looking for those who climb higher, who dig deeper, who see further, and who crave stronger; the Lord's mind they seek to know.  A matter of the heart, it is, of those who weep alone, those who strum their songs to the Lord, in soulful tones. They are those who stalk Him in the night, begging to converse, as He arrives swiftly, responding to their groans.  It's hunger like no other, that is born in the Spirit and fed by the brook.  Only those who leave earth's confines can enter that dimension and take a look. 


It's all about the God of Glory wanting a soulmate to walk with 
 Him on waters, and go where no man has gone
Foregoing the earthly pleasures, and traverse another world in 
measure, with the Lord in the early dawn  


 It's simple, you see; the lover of man's soul longs for one to war
 with Vision, and See with sound, a paradoxical story 
It is of God Almighty "in earth as it is in heaven" with His
  creation, and taking him from Glory to Glory


                           
It's all about entering that place, forging through a dimension,
with hunger; it's The Master's coercion for more
Then, God responds, that fervent prayers have brought the essence
of His presence, so "Walk Through The Open Door."

"Endure To The End!"



"But he that shall endure to the end, 
the same shall be saved."
(Matthew 24:13)

Fight, Warriors of the Most High God; swing that sword with
power, and fight for the cause
The Lord Jesus Christ is our strength; His spirit goes before us,
we need not fear the devil's claws
We are Warriors in earth, fighting for truth and the gospel,
even as Warriors in the heavens intercede
Angels fight to bring our answers, battling fiercely in the second
heaven, with flashes of lightning streaks
Don't Give Up, weary Warrior, for the sands are filling the
hourglass, and time is winding down
Keep your eyes on the prize, a home with Jesus in the skies,
and the coveted soul winner's crown
Reap the harvest and fight the opposition, for he knows the
time is short, and he's on the loser's end
So, hold your head up, Saint, because the tormentor has an
appointment, with the flames to descend
We know we win; it's just a matter of the mind, holding fast to
the Name, the Word, and the Blood
Remember, when attacks begin that it's because the Glory's
about to fall; the Lord is coming like a flood
The battle is not ours; it's the Lord's, with His bared arm, that
Isaiah said would stretch before the Nations
We must stand our ground, be strong in the Lord and the power
of His might, and strongly guard our station
Every soldier has his place, his position, and his orders; we
zoom in on the target, it's the world of lost souls
And we fight on, knowing the reins are held by the Master;
He sets up, tears down, and has the controls
Those streaks in the night sky are glints from Angels' swords, as
they wield and rule the second heaven
They're fighting for us against satan, his imps, and the plots
and plans of the demonic hellions
We are not alone in this war; our Savior made provision, to
protect and defend us from all evil
Our prayers rise as torpedoes of blood-bought fire, and they
paint the skies like a canvas on an easel
The war will be strong and hard, but the victory's already won;
and the march of the Church is uniting
It's a new movement around the world, as Nations meet the
Savior, His redemption, and His love so inviting
The sheaves are gathering, and the harvest is greater than ever
before, all looking up, ready to ascend
Rejoice Warriors; Joy comes in the morning, and The One who
 walks on water will help us "Endure To The End!"

"God's Timing"































"I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word 
I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more 
than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen 
wait for the morning."
(Psalm 130:5-6) 



Everybody wants to know.  It's the question most often asked of Almighty God; it's that elusive wondering, questioning, impatient, longing, frustrating, word.  Simeon waited for the promised Messiah.  And, "we" want to know, "when will the miracle come; when will the disease be healed; when will my family come together; when will the Rapture take place; when can I rise from these ashes; when will my teen come home; when will my marriage be whole; when   ... when  ...  WHEN?"

 "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; 
they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; 
and they shall walk, and not faint."
(Isaiah 40:31)
 

We're admonished to mount up as Eagles and wait, but it seems we're flying around in a holding pattern, going in circles and watching the world go by, while we WAIT.  It's the hardest thing for the Christian; it was hard for Job  ...  that nine months of sitting in terror.  It was hard for Joseph, rotting in a prison cell when he was innocent; it was hard for Abraham, holding on for a seemingly impossible promise; it was hard for Noah, building a boat on dry ground, listening to daily raucous laughter  ...  it's hard for everybody who WAITS.  But, the real question is  ...  What's going on while we wait?  What are we learning in the wait?  What "God plans" are developing during this sojourn in the hot lonely desert?  What's going on in our minds, while we look to the sky for the next raven drop by the brook? What's emerging in "us" while we WAIT?

"Therefore, since through God's mercy we have 
this ministry, we do not lose heart."
(2 Corinthians 4:1)

Ah, there it is!  It's about the "ministry."  What?  The ministry  ...  the whole reason we're saved, the whole point of all of it  ...  a lost and dying world that Jesus Christ gave His life for, a Church who is His Bride, a Garden that's not like it was but will be again; a reaching for the time when peace will reign for a thousand years; a plan that's been prophetically unfolding for a long long time.  So, WAIT, so SING, so REJOICE, so DANCE, so WORSHIP, so SHOUT, so WAIT   ...  for the fulfillment of all things!


"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, 
yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day."
(2 Corinthians 4:16)


Sing my now favorite song, "Everybody Get Up!"  You say, "Get up and wait; is that what you're saying?"  Yep!  You've got to admit that living for God is not dull!  It's an adventure, sometimes hard, sometimes ecstasy, sometimes peaceful, sometimes WAR, sometimes a groan, sometimes a giggle, sometimes tears, sometimes dancing, but all the time, He IS Good!  The Lord Jesus Christ is GOOD all the time; He will never leave us, nor forsake us  ...  that's a promise.  As long as we keep moving toward Him, looking up, gravitating to the light, and holding to His hand  ...  we'll be alright!


"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time 
we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."
(Galatians 6:9)


 
 

                      
Joseph, the shepherds, Moses, Daniel, Simeon, Job, and Ruth waited, to name a few.  They waited, we wait; it's the order of things in the realms of Almighty God.  They learned, and we learn through the wait.  It's about God in our lives, God molding us, God making us into vessels of honor, God working  ...  in His time.  

We're on the Home stretch; pick up the pace, get a new breath, smile a little wider, walk a little taller, praise a little louder, dance a little longer, worship a little deeper, climb a little higher, pray a little stronger, LOVE a little further   ... If we remember that "waiting" is really not about "us;" if we look at it with the "mind of Christ;" if we step out of ourselves and look through God's eyes  ...  we SEE that we CAN wait, we can grasp the bigger Vision, we can make the "wait" a work in progress to BRING FORTH.  You DO KNOW that the "WAIT" is supposed to bring something NEW from you, don't you?  It's not just cobwebs hanging from our waiting prayers.  It's really all about "WHO, WHAT, AND WHEN?"  ...  In "God's Timing."

"Vision's Incubator"





"Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life,
whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good
profession before many witnesses."
(I Timothy 6:12)


 Martyrs for the cause of Jesus Christ


This thing called FAITH in the LORD Jesus Christ is something worth fighting for.  Why?  Because it has eternal value; it crosses the boundaries of space and time and lands in portals of Glory.  Our Lord Jesus Christ paid the cost on the cross with His blood, His stripes, and His death, but He rose again, and passed the baton to us, His saints, His followers, to carry the torch to the end  ...  we are admonished to take up our cross and follow Him  ...  sometimes our cross, our burden, costs us everything; it's about seeing further than our face, it's about "Vision's Incubator."


The Prophet Jeremiah

The old Testament Prophet, Jeremiah, was known as the "weeping prophet."  It was thought that Jeremiah was most like our Savior, Jesus Christ, than any of the prophets of old.  He was sent to warn of coming judgment of God for the sins of the people, and he didn't mince words; he was plain spoken and got right to the point.  When dealing with people's sins, it must be without flowery persuasion and tender petting.  SIN takes people to Hell, the horrid fiery burning in torture forever; therefore, people have to know clearly and soberly the consequences of sin.  Jeremiah was plain and rough, less polite, but his weeping for the sins of the people tells us his heart.  His vision outweighed his burden  ...

Daniel, in the lions' den


Darius, King Cyrus' governor over Babylon, issued a decree that no god or man other than himself could be petitioned for thirty days.  The decree was made into law and sealed by the King; it could not be revoked, not even by the King, himself.  Daniel's practice was to pray three times a day toward Jerusalem, and he would not default his God by obeying this persecuting decree.  He continued to pray, openly and without hesitation; for this, he was thrown into the lions' den and sealed within.  Darius regretted this decree when he discovered he had been manipulated by men jealous that Daniel had been chosen as prime minister, and Darius respected Daniel's love for his God.  The end of the story is that Daniel's God came through; the lions' mouths were shut, and Daniel was found alive and well the next morning.  FAITH in action, vision of a higher purpose honored, the burden overcame the incubator  ...  the view of the unseen God was "seen."

Then King Darius wrote: To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in
all the earth: Peace be multiplied to you. I make a decree that in every dominion
of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel.  For He 
is the living God, and steadfast forever; His kingdom is the one which shall not
be destroyed, and His dominion shall endure to the end.  He delivers and rescues, 
and he works signs and wonders In heaven and on earth, who has delivered 
Daniel from the power of the lions.  So this Daniel prospered in the reign of 
Darius and in the the reign of Cyrus the Persian.





John the Baptist's head on a charger



How far do we go with this thing called FAITH?  How long do we bear the burden to see the vision fulfilled?  To what extent do we endure persecution for the cause of Jesus Christ?  How far do we carry the prayer, fasting, consecration, holiness, and endurance to reach the world for the Lord of Lords and King of Kings?  The answer?  ALL THE WAY TO THE END!
  
John the Baptist was the forerunner of the Lord Jesus Christ, preparing the way of the Lord.  He preached in the wilderness, clothed in camel's hair, and living on locusts and wild honey.  The old Testament Elijah prepared the way for Elisha, and was, in some sense, a type of John the Baptist, who prepared the way of the Messiah; and Elisha, a type of Christ.  God has a pattern of sending people before, to prepare the way of another.  That is what the Church does, the Bride of Christ, we are preparing the way for the groom, Jesus Christ, our Lord.


Herod Antipas feared John the Baptist, because of his popularity and his growing political power.  Herod took John prisoner, and apparently during his captivity, John, prophet that he was, warned Herod that he and Herodias were in an adulterous relationship.  This made Herodias furious, so she plotted to have her daughter, Salome, dance at the banquet feast before Herod.  It was customary if the dancer pleased Herod, he would grant her the wish of her choice.  Herodias induced Salome to ask for the head of John the Baptist, and she did.  John the Baptist was beheaded and his head laid on a charger. 

How far do we go in FAITH?  How long do we endure?  To what degree do we hold fast to the doctrine of the truth?  Until the sound of the trumpet! 
 
The martyrs for the gospel of Jesus Christ taught us that some things are worth the burden, worth the ridicule, worth the persecution, worth the pain, worth the cost, and it is the eternal vision, and for that, we must carry our cross, endure the hardship, because it's all about "Vision's Incubator."
 



"Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training.
They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do
it to get a crown that will last forever."
(I Corinthians 9:25)
