Time to Widen the Tent
Isaiah 54: 2&3 2 "Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. 3 For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.
Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. Revelation 1:6-8 (in Context) Revelation 1 (Whole Chapter)
Our Lord is returning soon and has GREAT rewards to those who have pressed into Who He is and not what He has. For those who have trimmed away the wick of their hearts of laziness, complacency, arrogance, filthiness, drunkenness, and idolatry will have riches this world knows nothing about; Hebrews 12:1 [ God Disciplines His Sons ] Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1-3 (in Context) Hebrews 12 (Whole Chapter)
The only reason we’re not seeing God in mighty and miraculous ways is due to our lack of hungering and thirsting for Him. We have allowed those things that don’t satisfy our hearts to occupy our lives. How His Heart desires to pour Himself out in powerful ways just as He did while His Son walked this planet but we’re not pressing into Him. How we need to hear the Father’s Heart to enlarge the tents of our hearts and strengthen the cords of our heart’s hungering and thirsting for Him. God is not the one to blame for the lack of His moving in powerful and miraculous ways in this world, we are; James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. James 4:7-9 (in Context) James 4 (Whole Chapter)
Riches beyond our comprehension await those who don’t seek them but who seek Him. God has had it with those who are only living for the next thrill of the eyes or of the flesh. He is going to pour Himself out to those who have risen above what this world considers important and have laid hold of a relationship with Him.
He truly is coming soon! The world is getting ready for satan to rule this world with the technology that is getting situated so that no one can buy or sell unless they have the mark of the beast. Even our own government is pushing for people to receive their payments by auto-pay instead of having to receive checks in the mail, after all, it just makes sense they say. How we will sell our souls in the name of “physical security and prosperity”. You no longer need cash to shop, just scan your card and it’s automatically deducted from your account. And now there is the lie of the De Vince code that Christ had relations and fathered children, soon the Anti Christ will appear as if he is the heir of Christ. Technology, worldwide lies of Christ; all is in place for the rapture of the church and the Great Tribulation for those left behind. If we lie idly by without waking up and trimming our lamps; Matthew 25 1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. Then we’ll miss the greatest party and joy our hearts could ever dream of in the Wedding Feast of the Lamb.
The Great Tribulation is for one reason, for God to pour out His wrath on this world for refusing His Son and accepting the lies of hell. There are all sorts of “teachings” of when He will rapture His church but there’s only one Truth of what He is going to do and if we will draw near to Him, He will draw near to us. Revelation as to what He is going to do will be revealed to those who are not seeking His Truths, but who are seeking Him. Those who seek Him only for “what He has” and not “Who He Is” will miss it all. God’s Heart hungers to give of Himself beyond our wildest dreams but only to those who are seeking relationship with Him. There was a time in Eternity when God gave of Himself to one whose name is satan/Lucifer just because His Heart wanted to. Unfortunately, instead of satan looking beyond the gifts to see the heart of God, chose instead to focus upon himself. Now this foul spirit that looks only to oneself instead of to the One from Whom all Blessings flow must now run its full course until the final Judgment Day. This foul spirit must not and cannot coexist with the Spirit of Self Surrender that Christ displayed with such excellent Glory.
Behold, He is coming soon! Now is the time to press near to Him; Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. Revelation 1:6-8 (in Context) Revelation 1 (Whole Chapter) God’s heart has not only stored up much wrath to pour out upon those who have listened to the lies of hell instead of His Son, but also has stored up much Joy for those who have learned to draw near to His Precious Son.
Now is the time to widen the tents of our hearts for Him, stand back and watch our God do Great and Glorious things! Dad, Thank YOU That You’re getting ready to rapture the church. Teach us how to enter in the Fire of Your heart that the dross and chaff of this life will be consumed and we may enter into the Joy that you have prepared for those that love You! In Jesus, Glorious, Eternal, Matchless Name, Amen.
