Long day yesterday with good flights all the way and a good night's sleep. Thank You Lord for this wonderful time with our family and thank You, though not easy, for the grace upon us to serve You here, away from them with joy and excitement and expectation and so much love for the people of Kona Faith Center! Great to see Sandi, Billy & Jessie! I am looking forward to seeing you all and ladies, remember Saturday for the "Such a Time as This" women's ministry with Ana at the church.
For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the archangel’s voice, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are still alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 CSB
The Lord always follows through on His Word. He picked an obedient man of God to divvy up the land and make sure the daughters of Zelophehad received their promised inheritance. Land is part of our inheritance as Believers and I think of the miracles the Lord has done with our church property. Once again, it is completely spelled out that this land belongs to Israel. The Canaanites should have been driven out. Just above in this chapter it states how the first born of Manasseh was a “man of war”. The two half tribes of Joseph wanted more land than the extra Joshua had distributed yet Joshua rightly said, “You can also drive out the Canaanites, even though they have iron chariots and are strong.” There is no such thing as “can’t” with the Lord unless He directly states that I cannot for His reason.
Never, ever, give any place to the enemy. Drive him out, no excuses!
The wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just of God. Just as the Israelites went into a land where they reaped and didn’t sow, the Lord avails that to those who walk righteously with Him.
At LAX waiting for our flight to Kona. Got up at 5am (midnight for Hawaii) to drop the car and get to the airport for our first flight from Little Rock to Dallas. Short layover there and then the next flight to here was about 3 hours. We still have a few hours to go before we fly home, so I am glad for internet so I can get this posted. Great trip of course but very difficult to say goodbye to everyone. We had a wonderful time with Eric and Denise and enjoyed Little Rock area. Sometimes you don't realize what You need until you just follow the lead of the Lord. We really needed this trip to see everyone and all that is going on in the spirit. Abba knows best! Thank You Lord for all who ministered while we were gone and especially your grace on Sandi for all she did and does for You and us! Bless her 100 fold Lord!
1 John 1:9 (HCSB)
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
The land was given as the Lord through Moses established yet not all of those who were to be driven out were driven out.
As stated from chapter 21, when the Lord speaks, His intended outcome occurs. The Lord Yeshua is returning as declared here and throughout scripture. It is by multiple witnesses and not just 2 or 3. The intended outcome when He returns will come to pass as declared by my Abba!
