Establish the Earth

Isaiah 49:8-9

8Thus says the Lord, In an acceptable and favorable time I have heard and answered you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you; and I will preserve you and give you for a covenant to the people, to raise up and establish the land [from its present state of ruin] and to apportion and cause them to inherit the desolate [moral wastes of heathenism, their] heritages,

9Saying to those who are bound, Come forth, and to those who are in [spiritual] darkness, Show yourselves [come into the light of the Sun of righteousness]. They shall feed in all the ways [in which they go], and their pastures shall be [not in deserts, but] on all the bare [grass-covered] hills.

Establish the Earth

Christ came to establish the kingdom of God in the earth.  He came as a prototype and firstfruits of that company of people that He would use to propagate and infuse this kingdom into the hearts of men throughout the earth.  The Lord Jesus gave us a commission to go out into all of the earth and bring the gospel and the good news to them.  What the Lord began with the Jews He has accomplished through the Gentiles, because as a whole, His own received Him not. 

Romans 11:25 says, “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.”  The rejection of Christ by the Jews has become the Gentile’s salvation.  We have reaped the benefit and blessing of their rejection.  God will not cast off His people for all time, but will again establish and restore their habitation and ruins. God has given us as a new covenant in Christ.  He has also given us the commission and the honor to establish this covenant in the earth.  What God has given us as a commission to do, He has not left us in our own strength and devices to carry it out.  Religions of men are built on such devices and the strength and wisdom of men will always fall short. The Lord has given us His signet ring, His authority and power for us to go to those who are bound in spiritual darkness and bring them into the light of the Son of righteousness. 

We are more than we think we are.  There is more potential power and authority in you than you can even imagine.  There is about to be a spiritual explosion in the earth.  The spirits of darkness and of light will manifest themselves as never before.  God has prepared us for this hour to magnify, declare and, with all spiritual authority, establish His Name in the earth. 

Most of us look at ourselves and say who am I?  What do I have?  What can I do?  You can be the instrument of God’s righteousness and deliverance.  Through our obedience and faith we can and will walk in places of spiritual authority and power that we have never known.  Take your eyes off of your flesh and get them upon Christ, for His headship and His life is being expressed through His body to carry out His will and covenant.  Our weakness is insignificant next to His strength.   

In 1 Chronicles 28:7-8 the Lord speaks concerning Solomon, “Moreover I will establish his kingdom for ever, if he be constant to do my commandments and my judgments, as at this day. Now therefore in the sight of all Israel the congregation of the LORD, and in the audience of our God, keep and seek for all the commandments of the LORD your God: that ye may possess this good land, and leave [it] for an inheritance for your children after you for ever.”  The Lord has given us His covenant to establish His kingdom.  What is working in us, will work through us, as we are constant to keep the Lord’s ways and set our hearts steadfastly upon Him.  The Lord is stirring in the hearts of His people to prepare our hearts. that we may walk in the faith and footsteps of the Son of God.
