5.16.2020-Word of the Lord-This was given Live on the McFiles on 5/20/20
Word/Insight from the Lord at sunrise
NOTE: Triangle relationship-heard
The Lord is God there is none like Adonai maker of heaven and earth. To His Kingdom there is no end! His light dissipates the darkness of the enemy and the world. The darkness of the enemy is layered in ungodliness, despair, interwoven with programmable actions presented as harmless choices, lucrative, as powerful. People get caught in the layers so they cannot see ahead and/or turn around and depart.
5.19.20 6:45 am Word of the Lord
“set your mind on the things above for there is a different order when looking from heaven’s perspective”
The order is being changed. There is going to be a very sudden switch and the direction changed. You will see this occur to take influence. To disrupt the amount of influence they have because their current is contrary to the things of God. Their behavior does not align with the Lord’s agenda or His plan.
A detour. Those of you will go on into the plans of God and others will be detoured off so you can move forward in the plans of God. While others who have rejected God for their own plans will witness pits and problems they did not calculate or foresee. Because there are those afflicted by spiritual nearsightedness. They only care about what is right in front of them, what they want, wanting it now. However, because the Lord and His insight has been pushed out of the way to desperately pursue what is before them, a problem pit they cannot see, for they have tuned out the warnings given them. Will drastically throw a wrench in their plans taking them down a brambled road. They are attempting to push through a bramble, thorn filled patch, which brings the snare.
The devil, lucifer, right now desperately wants to lure you into that path by dangling bait before you that is tied to a wound from years prior. Lucifer wants to get those in agreement that they need to fix and oversee thee issues and the broken lives of others. However spiritual nearsightedness and need for control is causing those to see things on a superficial level by which circumstances should not be judged.
However, if they took a good look around, they would see their backyard, their life is a spiritual graveyard, where large headstones have been displayed. What has been lost by refusing to see what was before them and deal with the core root, giving life to every offshoot that has grown, now dominates their choices.
There are those carrying enormous amounts of baggage. They have become so sued to dragging it through every facet of life that it’s crowding out what the Lord desires. For that baggage is taking up so much space, For the things of God there is no room to dwell. That baggage contains years of every heavy burdensome oppressive event that was stuffed away and never dealt with. Now under the radar it dictates all the choices. Instead of god driven they have driven god out! There will be an impasse for those who continue wrestling the Lord. However, those who set their eyes on the Lord and truly walk with Him shall see a new way cleared.
WORD GIVEN: 5.20.20 4:26 pm
2 Samuel 5:17-2
War with the Philistines:
When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over Israel, all the Philistines went up to look for him, but he heard about it and went down to the stronghold. Now the Philistines had come and spread out [for battle] in the Valley of Rephaim. David inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You hand them over to me?” And the Lord said to David, “Go up, for I will certainly hand them over to you.” So, David came to Baal-perazim, and he defeated them there, and said, “The Lord has broken through my enemies before me, like a breakthrough of water.” So, he named that place Baal-perazim (master of breakthroughs). The Philistines abandoned their [pagan] idols there, so David and his men took them away [to be burned]. The Philistines came up once again and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim. When David inquired of the Lord, He said, “You shall not go up, but circle around behind them and come at them in front of the balsam trees. And when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, then you shall pay attention and act promptly, for at that time the Lord will have gone out before you to strike the army of the Philistines.” David did just as the Lord had commanded him and struck down the Philistines from Geba as far as Gezer.
It was a different set of instructions, what worked for the first battle was not going to work for this one. The Lord gives David a different set of instructions, and this one not only involves circling around and coming at them from behind, so hitting them to their backs, with the balsam trees concealing them as they go to strike. David COULD NOT strike until he heard the sound of the Lord marching before Him at the tops the trees, that is when David would know that the Lord had indeed gone out before Him. How the Lord positions you this time will be different than the times before, the instruction shall be different, the order shall be different, the timing shall be different. The Lord is circling around with you and the enemy will not see what the Lord is about to do in your life because you are being positioned behind the enemy, and he will be too busy trying to look in front of him for what is coming, and you will already be behind him and by the time he turns around it will be too late! Moving you into position this time will be the strategy of God and you just obeying the order and obeying the Lord.
NOTE: Heard Zerubbabel
Zerubbabel was an influential political and religious leader in Israel during the time when Jewish exiles returned from captivity in Babylon. He is best known for spearheading the rebuilding of God’s Temple in Jerusalem in the 6th Century B.C.
growing up in Babylon’s royal court and being educated in politics and military as well as in strong roots of Jewish faith. When Persia overthrew the supposedly invincible Babylon around 539 B.C., he apparently found new favor from the conquering king, Cyrus II. Under orders from the victorious Persian ruler, Zerubbabel was appointed “governor” over Judah and sent back to Jerusalem in 538 B.C. to lead the effort to rebuild God’s Temple there.
The actual return was a crushing disappointment. The returning exiles found Judah a wilderness and the Holy City a wasteland. Corruption was everywhere, even among the priesthood. The descendants of those who had escaped captivity were hostile to the newcomers, fearing that their Babylonian brethren might try to recover their former family properties.”
The enemies of Judah and Benjamin heard that the exiles were building a temple for the Lord, the God of Israel, they came to Zerubbabel and to the heads of the families and said, ‘Let us help you build’” (Ezra 4:1-2 NIV). The Zerubbabel bluntly refused them, insulting them as he said, “You have no part with us in building a temple to our God. We alone will build it for the Lord” (Ezra 4:3 NIV).
After that, the locals in Jerusalem did everything they could to frustrate Zerubbabel and keep the Temple from being built—and they succeeded (Ezra 4:4-5). The returning exiles were only able to lay the foundation for the Temple, but nothing else. It was not until about 15 years later, in 520 B.C., that the prophets Haggai and Zechariah were able to convince Zerubbabel to resume construction in earnest. The Temple was finally completed around 516 B.C.
Regardless of whether or not Zerubbabel tried to lead a messianic movement for himself, he was involved with the coming of Christ. Both Matthew and Luke list this Babylonian-born, Persian-appointed governor of Judah as a forefather of Joseph, the adoptive father of Jesus. (see Matthew 1:12-13 and Luke 3:27).
People anointed by God from their youth, raised up in enemy territory, raised up in circumstances less than ideal, raised up in the midst of instability, war, devastation.
Finding new favor with leaders and coming into positions in this country for such a time as this Then [the Samaritans and others of] the people of the land discouraged the people of Judah, and frightened them [to deter them] from building, and hired advisers [to work] against them to frustrate their plans during the entire time that Cyrus king of Persia reigned, [and this lasted] even until the reign of Darius king of Persia.
Now in the reign of Ahasuerus (Xerxes), in the beginning of his reign, the Samaritans wrote [to him] an accusation against the inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem [who had returned from exile]. Later, in the days of [King] Artaxerxes, Bishlam, Mithredath, Tabeel and the rest of their associates wrote to Artaxerxes king of Persia; and the text of the letter was written in Aramaic and translated from Aramaic.
The Letter to King Artaxerxes Ezra 4:8-16
Rehum the [Persian] commander [of the Samaritans] and Shimshai the scribe wrote a letter against Jerusalem to Artaxerxes the king as follows— then wrote Rehum the [Persian] commander, Shimshai the scribe, and the rest of their associates, the judges, the lesser governors, the officials, the secretaries, the men of Erech, the Babylonians, the men of Susa, that is, the Elamites, and the rest of the nations whom the great and noble Osnappar deported and settled in the city of Samaria, and in the rest of the region ]west of the [Euphrates] River. Now this is a copy of the letter which they sent to him: “To King Artaxerxes from your servants, the men in the region west of the [Euphrates] River; and now: Let it be known to the king that the Jews who came up from you have come to us at Jerusalem. They are rebuilding this rebellious and evil city and are finishing its walls and repairing the foundations. Now let it be known to the king, that if that city is rebuilt and the walls are finished, then they will not pay tax, custom, or toll, and the revenue of the kings will be diminished. Now because we are in the service of the palace, and it is not proper for us to witness the king’s dishonor, for that reason we have sent word and informed the king, in order that a search may be made in the record books of your fathers. And you will discover in the record books and learn that this is a rebellious city, damaging to kings and provinces, and that in the past they have incited rebellion within it. That is why that city was laid waste (destroyed).We are informing the king that if that city is rebuilt and its walls finished, it will mean that you will have no possession in the province west of the [Euphrates] River.”
