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 first fruits 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.

Jeremiah 14:6
Wild donkeys stand on the barren heights and pant like jackals; their eyesight fails for lack of pasture.”
7 Although our sins testify against us, O LORD, do something for the sake of your name. For our backsliding is great; we have sinned against you. 8 O Hope of Israel, its Savior in times of distress,
why are you like a stranger in the land, like a traveler who stays only a night? 9 Why are you like a man taken by surprise, like a warrior powerless to save? You are among us, O LORD, and we bear your name;
do not forsake us!

You are the Pastures of God’s Truth

This word of Jeremiah could well speak of the spiritual condition of our nation today. As a nation we have lost the spiritual vision of who we are. Our backsliding is great and many have forsaken the name of the Lord. As a result the pastures of spiritual provision have dried up for many. A spiritual famine has beset those who have gone in their own way and embraced the secular viewpoint of society today. There is a leanness of soul that has come upon many today. Many have become disillusioned with religion and the tele-evangelism of yesterday when they saw the greediness of men’s hearts revealed in the name of God.
There is a remnant that knows their God and who hold fast the faith. It is this remnant that has preserved this nation up to this hour. Their prayers and intercession have not gone unheard. God has been preparing a people for such a time as this that they may be the pasture in the midst of a spiritual wilderness. They are the streams of water that will provide the knowledge and life of God to those who are now seeking for real truth and meaning in their lives.
People of God prepare yourselves for all that the Lord has poured within you over the years. Those who are in spiritual famine He will move upon to bring them to drink from the wells of salvation. You are about to be poured out for a people that are hungry for the truth and who the Spirit of the Lord is drawing. There is a field ripe unto harvest and we are the laborers sent forth to gather in the harvest.
The Lord has not forsaken His name and He will show Himself mighty among those who hold it fast in their hearts. Come and refresh yourselves in the Lord for we are His people, called forth by His name to show the way of salvation and righteousness.

Blessings
