Due Season

Ecclesiastes 11:4-6 (NKJV)

He who observes the wind will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap. As you do not know what is the way of the wind or how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child, so you do not know the works of God who makes everything. In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening do not withhold your hand; for you do not know which will prosper, either this or that, or whether both alike will be good.

It’s my season. No, really I believe that it is my due season. The Word of God promises that if we sow in the morning and do not “withhold your hand” or keep your seed that you will prosper from one or both activities. Seed put in the ground is guaranteed…

Welcome Mats

Ephesians 4:29-32 (NKJV)

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

 

We built our house over ten years ago. It was the first time that I had ever dealt with construction with all previous dwellings having already been lived in. When we found our home, it was nothing more than a cleared lot with a cinderblock foundation. Plumbing pipes shot up through the foundation but beyond that it was inhabitable. As we walked around the property, I prayed for God to direct us. Was this to be our new home? We didn’t even know what it would look like when it was finished…

Eph. 6:11   Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  14 Stand therefore having your loans girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quence all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.’

Day is about to break here at my mountain home.  I’ve been awake for a few hours now.  In the stillness of predawn, I’ve been ‘listening’ to the unseen voice (‘be still and know that I am God Ps 46:10..’).  I’ve listened as He has reminded my heart of the seriousness of the times weThe Overwhelmed Heart are now experiencing…both in America and around the world.  Seemingly, in the Middle East,  we continue to see the beginnings of aligning of nations, of principalities, and of powers as revealed in Revelations chapter 13.  But ‘count it all joy’ since the last nation/principality/power left standing is the City of God as seen in Revelations chapter 21.

The great falling away is upon us. ‘As in the days of Noe’ is upon us. ‘The love of many will wax cold’  is upon us. The sins of Sodom are upon us. The ‘enduring to the end’ is upon us. We are in the midst of warfare…not against flesh and blood…but ‘against spiritual wickedness in high places.’  The blight of sensual lust, of aborted life, and of  evil greed marches proudly before  the world as a standard of Satan’s deception.  Many who say ‘Lord, Lord’…deny Him with fruits rooted in the flesh (clay) and not in the Spirit.     Division, discord, confusion and hatred stomp aggressively forward and will not retreat. Satan’s representatives are in our world, in our nation, in our state, in our city, in our town, in our church and even often in our family…..evidenced by the destructive fruits they bear.  But though the battle rages – the war is already won by the Babe born in Bethlehem. Gentleness has already won over brutality.  Servitude has won over lordship. Love has won over hate. Life has won over Death. Faith sees the True, the Honest, the Just, the Pure and the Lovely who lives in the heart and speaks peace (Phillipians 4:8) in

Ro 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together

Shepherd continues to seek the lamb who has strayed away from the safety of the flock and is in danger of becoming prey for the wolves of the evening who run to and fro seeking whom they may devour.

John 10:7 Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.  9 I am the door, by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mind. 15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

The Overwhelmed Heart

Psalm 61:1-3 (NLT)
O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! From the ends of the earth, I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety, for you are my safe refuge, a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me.

Life is overwhelming. My life is full of challenges and circumstances just like yours. I wrapped up in the chaos and clamor of this world just like the next person. With all the problems faced on a daily basis, it usually takes a catastrophic illness or personal tragedy for us to truly identify with being overwhelmed. When the unthinkable becomes a reality, we realize the insignificance of the many things once labeled as “important” before hardship comes. I do not believe that the Lord created the struggles that we face at all. I do not believe His Will ever…

I am counting on the LORD; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word. I long for the Lord more than sentries long for the dawn, yes, more than sentries long for the dawn.

What is it about tragedy that catches our attention? Why are we transfixed by drama in life? We cannot stop watching. Life is a beautiful tragedy. We are all born dying from the moment we draw our first breath while desperately trying to avoid it. The answer to death is life. Humanity has been given the opportunity to live yet many are determined to continue in the darkness that leads to death. It is enticing and seductive as the inevitable calls. What is the point of grace if we could ever truly change? Yet in that moment when the tragedy of life becomes a reality, it is…

The doctrinal focus of the sacrificial death of our Christ is generally on His physical death by crucifixion while nailed to a raised wooden cross. But fairness demands the greater focus  be on the death He died in our stead – the Second Death (death of the soul).  The Lamb of God sweated ‘as it were drops of blood’ not because He feared crucifixion – but because He knew the depths of darkness/desolation/evil to which He would descend as atonement for.

Christendom celebrates the death and resurrection of the Lamb  ‘Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his

Ro 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together

Ro 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together

righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God. Romans 3:25.”   Oh my…where do I start to search the depths of sacrifice, of setting forth, of propitiation, of faith, of blood, of righteousness, of sins past, of forbearance of God?  I begin by searching His incredible gift of going to Death in my place.     

Amidst varied Christian doctrines and traditons…we agree that Christ suffered to redeem us from death to Life. But I contend that Christian tradition has focused  narrowly on the agony of physical death with little mention of the agony and suffering of His soul which went into Death – the eternal desolate place of  the wicked. I contend that Christian tradition has made the three-fold cord into a two-fold cord representing crucifixion and resurrection only. The three days of death are seldom considered.   What happened to Christ while He was ‘in the heart of the earth’ for three days?  (Matt 12:49).     

As a child,  I knew His sacrificial suffering was intensely more…deeper…than the insufficient words used to describe the events of crucifixion, entombment, and resurrection.   But not until recent years did I understand through divine revelation …and that in small measure…the horrors suffered by both God and Christ as they accomplished redemption for those who will receive it. Crucifixion was the least of it!! 

When the time came for the appearing of the ‘Lamb slain from the foundation of the world’, Christ would be the willing and faithful sacrificial Lamb. God would assign the vile sin of man to the pure and righteous soul of the Son. Christ would die, not as the Son of God, but as wicked man. He would make His grave with the rich and wicked ( Isa 53:9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.’).

In  Gethsemane (Luke 22: 42-44), Christ’s spirit agonized extensively knowing the desolation, the vileness, the deadness, the evil His sacrificial fallen soul was going to experience for three days and nights in Death.  Be clear!  When I say ‘death’, I am speaking only what scripture has revealed. I am speaking of Jonah’s revelation, of Isaiah’s, and of Christ’s own Word about His sacrificial death in our stead. Death of the soul is unspeakable in its vileness. Death is the place of no Light  – a place void of even the flicker of a candle – a place of blindness where there is not even the hope of  life ever again since life requires Light. Death is a place void of  Life …Eden’s opposite. Death separates the soul from Light and Life in God.  Within its confines, death reeks of suicidal desolation and hopelessness.  Even Legion preferred dwelling within swine over being sent back to the dry place of  Death.   

 Knowing the depths of Death, Christ’s heart agonized before the Father. ‘ And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.’ Matt 26:39.  The horror of it was such that Christ sweated so extensively that what little water was left in His body became mingled with blood. Weakness from dehydration was extensive but angels came and ministered to Him…sustained Him….loved Him. Christ points us to Jonah for a better understanding of Death, Burial, and Resurrection. . 

God appointed Jonah to carry the gospel to Nineveh (wicked world). But first…God would teach Jonah about death, burial, and resurrection. He would teach Jonah of desolation, of being cast out of God’s sight, and of redemption.  Aboard the ship of idol worshippers bound for Tarshish (Jonah chapter one), Jonah willing gave himself to death so the power of God would be manifested to the lost souls on board the ship. His sacrifice calmed the storm and the heathen acknowledged the God of Jonah. Drowned in the raging water a great fish..sent from God..swallowed Jonah. Physically dead, Jonah’s soul cries out to God about the horror of death…of being cast out of God’s sight…and of faith in the giver of Life.  

Jonah 2:1 Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly,  2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice. 3 For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me 4 Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple. 5 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head. 6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.  7 When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple. ‘

For Jonah, death was from drowning as he gave himself to save those on board; burial was entombment in the great fish prepared by God which carried him deepest parts of the physical earth; resurrected to the land of the living…to dry land. Now He understood desolation, bondage, and the power of God to redeem from death. . Jonah carried the God empowered message to Nineveh. They heard and repented!!   Jonah’s journey to ‘the bottom of the mountains’ was only a type of the ‘center of the earth’ journey ordained for the soul of Christ….as His body lay uncorrupted in the tomb.  

Christ spoke of Jonah, , ‘ Matt 12:39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: 40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”  WOW!  WOW!!  Be clear!  By Christ’s own mouth, Jonah’s death, burial, and resurrection is a type which points to the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. Jonah’s sacrificial death is  a type of Christ’s death. Jonah died willingly by drowning.  Christ died willingly by crucifixion. Jonah became entombed in a great fish.  Christ became entombed in a large rock.  Jonah’s soul was cast out of God’s sight and suffered saying ‘ I am cast out of thy sight.’  Christ affirmed a deeper horror  by saying ‘My God…why hast thou forsaken me?’ God brought Jonah from the belly of hell’ to Life.  Isaiah 53:9 affirms, And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.’ ‘Crucifixion (physical death) is the least of it!   Death ( grave with the wicked and rich) is the horror of it. Resurrection (seated again at the right hand of the Father) is the finishing of it.    

I insist that Christ would not have sweated ‘as it were drops of blood’ and required sustenance from ministering angels…if He anticipated merely a physical death. What agony could there be in knowing the earthly visit was nearing completion after which He would again be glorified….returned to the Father?  And if nothing happened during the three days…if Christ lay dead within the tomb…why did Isaiah 53:9 say he  ‘made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death?’  If He did make his grave with the wicked and the rich….Luke 16: 22-24 clearly describes the grave of the rich as hell. If Christ did not suffer a horror worthy of His agony in the Garden, why did Paul refer to David’s prophecy in Acts 2:27 …’Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption?’ …corruption meaning Christ’s physical body would not decay and return to dust.  David’s words prophesied about Christ. Read  Acts 2:25-37 which refers to David’s prophecy in Psalms 16:10.  And Christ clearly told us to see the death, entombment, and resurrection of Jonah as a type of His own(Jonah 2:1). Subsequently, how can we know of the desolate, outcast, and hellish plight of Jonah and insist that Christ, the true Lamb of God, did not suffer horrors during the three days and nights in Death?       

 By the sustaining power of God, Christ endured the large iron spikes driven  between bones in his hands and feet since.  The spikes would plug the wounds and prevent blood loss and death would come slowly….usually by dehydration since the large spikes plugged the wound to prevent blood loss and to extend suffering.  To affirm the foreknowledge of God ..Christ died before the executioners came back to complete their task of breaking the bones of the condemned to carry out death.  (Joh 19:36  ‘For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken).  Too, Christ’s blood was not shed until after He ‘made his grave with the wicked and the rich’ and after He  poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors..Isa 53:12.  Christ was already physically dead and experiencing the agony of spiritual death when the executioners returned …pierced His side..and watched blood and water flow from the empty earthen vessel that had housed the Son of God.   John 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water..  

The two large crossed beams and the method of execution (crucifixion) is generally the focus of Christ’s suffering.  But only by divine revelation can one know and acknowledged the depths and agony of His sacrifice…know the price of  giving His pure and perfect soul to the vileness of death… in our stead. We have not heard His loud and agonizing cry ‘ Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?  that is to say, My God, my God, why has thou forsaken me?”

 Knowing I am bought with the price of Christ’s soul…woe is promised me if I ‘neglect so great a salvation.

Luke 2:13  ‘And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.’

  John 14:27  Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.’

Peace?  Goodwill?   How can there be ‘peace’ in a world torn with debate, conflict,

Ps 100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Joh 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

destruction and global unrest?  Where is the ‘good will towards men’ in a world populated by many whose hearts foster ill-will towards others?  If ‘Peace on Earth – Good Will Towards Men’ exists – where does it live?  I contend such pure intention exists in the Father, Son (Prince of Peace), and Holy Spirit who indwells the hearts of believers. And I see His hand continually through a global multitude whose hearts selflessly and compassionately serve their fellow-man.

Too many to mention are the faith-based/corporate/government/non-government/private/non-profit agencies who are incredibly active in offering humanitarian services and provision to those who are in need.  As a volunteer with a national non-profit who via a Congressional Charter and with a broad base of partners/donors – provides emergency disaster relief, I am in awe at having realized through first hand experience that God’s ‘Peace on Earth – Good Will Towards Men’ is alive and well!!!!  In the past my focus was on the problems of my county, state and world.  But now I am seeing a thing I once believed was lost – pure unadulterated humanitarianism – of the God kind !

In my county in southern America, there are two hundred and fifty churches, twenty-six Fire Departments (twenty-four Volunteer/two paid City

departments), seventeen incorporated municipalities and a host of

non-profit/government/non-government agencies all who take part in humanitarianism straight from the loving heart of God.  Before following my heart to early retirement from the teaching profession in search of a God-compelled place, I had a general awareness of the goodness of the churches and agencies active in my narrow  perspective window. And for the most part I just complained about the state of the world and the evil there.  But since I’ve found the ‘secret-garden’ of humanitarianism so to speak, I observe the love of God saturating and flowing through agencies and touching hearts and lives who need uplifted and encouraged.

America practices humanitarianism via the National Response Framework and National Incident Command Management System (NIMS).  The National Response Framework (NRF) is a guide to how the Nation conducts all-hazard response for managing incidents that range from the serious but purely local to large-scale terrorist attacks or catastrophic natural disasters. The companion NIMS  ‘provides a consistent, nationwide template to enable Federal, State, Tribal, and local governments, the private sector, and non-government organizations (NGOs) to work together to prepare for, prevent, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of incidents regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity.’  And the beautiful idea of loving, helping, restoring, sheltering and feeding people in need comes from a heart higher and purer than the human heart.  Such high Humanitarianism comes straight from the kind, gentle and merciful heart of God!!!!  And we are so steeped in habits of complaining and bemoaning that we do not see the loving Hand constantly stretched forth to touch those who are hurting.  And we do not see that churches, businesses, non-profits, non-government, private and yes – governments are gifts from the Father to his creation !!

Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 3For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.

And, yes, there are tares who plant themselves next to the wheat of God’s earthly government with intent to hinder and destroy.  The Kingdom of God in the world is described in the following verse:  John 17:23 I in them, and thou in

Purity

Prince of Peace

me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.’  But alongside the Kingdom of God  sits Mystery Babylon – the fulness of fleshly lust and greed. But the bad intent does not void God’s gift of rulers and the related benevolent functions and protections provided to the people.

Matthew 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Yet the gentle heart of  God remains the victor as proven by Hebrews chapters eleven and twelve which names the horrors the enemy perpetuates against God’s people – by God’s permission.  But the kicker is that as satan steals the earthly breath from a child of God, the soul returns to the Father in a place of peace, safety, light, and glory – Eden restored!!!  Hebrews 11:37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; 38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.’     ‘Of whom the world was not worthy’ – I totally love that while it appears evil is the victor that actually God the Father is gathering them back to Himself because the ‘world was not worthy’ of their presence any longer. Wow!!!!  Awesome!!!

 And we cannot lose sight of the fact that God’s strong hand remains on our world even though He is loosening the restraints on evil in this generation – for His perfect purposes!  I thank God that He has directed me to a place of wisdom – to a place of recognizing that it is His hand and heart in all the humanitarian efforts and acts around the world though they are performed by human hearts, feet, hands, and voices under His direction.

We must give our Father credit due for His organizations made up of servants, both paid and volunteer, who are touching the hurting and hopeless. Thank You, God, for organizations such as CAN (Coordinated Assistance Network) made up of  AIRS (Alliance of Information & Referral Systems, American Red Cross, Catholic Charities U.S.A, Lutheran Disaster Response, (VOAD) National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster, The Salvation Army, Southern Baptist

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.John 3:16

Conventions Disaster Relief, United Way and (UMCOR) United Methodist Committee on Relief.  And along with these CAN agencies, other agencies operate under the National Mass Care Strategy such as FEMA, NEMA (National Emergency Management Association), Crisis Common, Save the Children, Medical Reserve Corp, (NACo) National Organization of Counties (represents county governments in the U.S.), National Disability Rights Network, Adventist Community Service, Business Civic, Leadership Center (U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation), (iAEM) International Association of Emergency Managers (non-profit educational organization dedicated to promoting the goals of saving lives and protecting property during emergencies and disasters), and Feeding America .  Wow!!!  Wow!!!  I believe that if it were possible to document the humanitarian deeds  of all the faith-based, government/non-government/private/corporate/non-profit agencies and groups who serve humanity around the world – that I would come to the end of my life before I could name them all.  How dare I complain about worldly things  in light of such heavenly abundance of grace, love, mercy, kindness, joy, restoration, caring and giving.  How dare I complain when trillions upon trillions of benevolent

donor dollars and trillions upon trillions of both paid/volunteer service hours are given in humanitarianism service globally. How dare I not confess that such Humanitarianism is the result of the Heavenly Father’s loving touch on the earth!!   Instead of bemoaning and complaining I will be found eternally praising the Father for the  ‘Peace on Earth – Good Will Towards Men’ which resounds today as surely as when first spoken by the heavenly host.  And many insist that God as Righteous judge destroys His enemies in vengeful rebuke. But I insist the loving Father’s enemies self-destruct as they come against/reject His Power which is Truth/Life (the Word of God) and, thus, choose their eternal damnation-Death.

The warrior God who rides the white horse of Revelations 19 is misleading for those who do not know the gentle heart of the Creator.   11.  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.’     But the

Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray you, Lord, my soul will keep. If I should die before I wake....I pray you, Lord, my soul will take. Amen.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Matt. 5:9

fearless and thunderous strength of the white horse assures deliverance in battle.  His many crowns are His infinite authority over all enemies. His blood-soaked vesture is dripping with His own blood poured out for atonement of sin.  And his name, The Word of God, is Truth.  Truth is the final Judge.  Man’s decisions against Truth is what damns the soul.  Yet Truth remains pure, gentle, kind, merciful and His Love is eternal!

And the following seems to contradict ‘Peace on Earth’- Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. Matt 10:34′.  But the Sword is God (John 1.1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God‘).  But God is the final Word on righteousness, goodness, love, and compassion.  Those who hate God and reject His redemption bought by His own soul – knowingly damn themselves. They and their evil father are the opponents of Life. The gentle Heavenly Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are present in the world today granting/perpetuating Peace on Earth and Good Will Towards Men.
