A new season!

We have moved into the season whereby God is now moving to deliver His chosen ones.  And we are not to stop until Jerusalem (God’s people) are restored!

Isaiah 62:6-7.  I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.

For those who are gentiles, we know that we are grafted into His chosen people (Rom 11:22-24).

Let us tell the church to start preparing herself (putting on the robes of deliverance – being holy as He is holy) and let those who call on the Lord not stop until she shines!

Revelation 19: 6-8 Then I heard again what sounded like the shout of a vast crowd or the roar of mighty ocean waves or the crash of loud thunder: “Praise the Lord!  For the Lord our God,the Almighty, reigns. Let us be glad and rejoice, and let us give honor to him.  For the time has come for the wedding feast of the Lamb, and his bride has prepared herself. She has been given the finest of pure white linen to wear.”  For the fine linen represents the good deeds of God’s holy people.

Deliverance is a gift from God

Isaiah 61:10 “I will greatly rejoice in the Lord; I will be overjoyed because of my God. For he clothes me in garments of deliverance; he puts on me a robe symbolizing vindication. I look like a bridegroom when he wears a turban as a priest would; I look like a bride when she puts on her jewelry.”

This verse sums up very succinctly what it means to prepare ourselves for Jesus return.   We are to use the clothes of deliverance He gives us.

Deliverance is a GIFT from God.  Are you going to open it, or are you going to leave it unopened?  A gift that is unopened isn’t much good.

We know that through the parable of the wedding feast in Matt 22 that we need to be dressed correctly for the wedding.

Are you going to open up the gift of deliverance that God gives you, and put it on to be able to overcome those things in your life that are not right?  Or are you going to try and enter the feast not dressed correctly?  (hint: it didn’t end well for the one who tried to enter the feast incorrectly).
