Rev 19:11 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.”
Things Are Not As They Seem. Many of God’s people think that either He is doing little or nothing today. But the Lord Jesus is moving greatly behind the scenes where it cannot be seen. And God is telling His people to stop accusing Him of not properly doing His job or they will miss out on their Promised Land of provision due to their murmuring and complaining. Listen, God is not intimidated by the liberal left and can use their schemes for his own purposes. They are devising a wicked plan, but God is devising deliverance for His people. God is doing things differently, a new thing like he spoke in Isa.43:19. God is going to do what he said in Psalm 27 for His people.
Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." In verse 3 it says, "By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible." We must understand this fact. “The things which are seen are NOT made of the things which are visible.” “The things which are seen are NOT made of the things which are visible.”
So why do we expect to SEE what God is doing before it is time to be seen. For when God speaks it is so, as it was when He spoke the world into being. Sometimes God speaks something that doesn’t happen immediately or all at once, but it doesn’t change the reality that it is already established in Heaven and will come to pass on the earth. God does not have to work with things that we can SEE in our time frame - for what He is doing to be made perfect. The Secret things belong to God until He chooses to reveal them.
Psalm 46:10"Be still, and know that I am God". God is accomplishing MUCH that you cannot see yet, but will soon be made manifest. Meanwhile, do not accuse Him of improperly doing His job by complaining – about anything, but in all things give thanks, for as Pa. Luis taught us, all news is good news. Because God is in control behind the news. Prophecy is nothing but the news in advance of its manifestation. The spiritual realm has power and precedence over the natural realm because it is what is real. When something is established in heaven, it will be manifest on the earth, because God looks over His word to perform it and it will not return unto Him void, but will accomplish the purpose for when it was sent forth.
Malachi 3:13-15, "'Your words have been harsh against Me,' says the Lord, Yet you say, "What have we spoken against You?" You have said, "It is useless to serve God; what profit is it that we have kept His ordinance, and that we have walked as mourners before the Lord of hosts? So now we call the proud blessed, for those who do wickedness are raised up; they even tempt God and go free.' This is the words of God’s people, who are questioning Him and what He is doing or murmuring. They are in effect saying; God, you’re doing a lousy job. Serving you doesn’t pay. I have spoken negative things in the past and for that I repent. There is no nay in God, only yea and amen.
Malachi 3:16-18 “Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord listened and heard them; so a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His name. 'They shall be Mine,' says the Lord of hosts, 'On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him. Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.'" When God moves in judgment against the wicked, He will consider those that are His as a precious jewel, as His treasure and inheritance, something to be prized and protected, and He will act toward them as a tender father does towards a loving and obedient son.
God is still God, and we are not to be concerned about those who have seemingly "gotten away with evil," for their "day" is coming. We have already seen this begin to come to pass as evil corrupt men are being exposed. This was one of the things God spoke about this year 2008. It is a year for things in darkness to be brought to the light.
Psalm 37:1-13 “Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. 3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. 4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. 6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. 7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. 9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. 10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. 11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. 12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. 13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.”
Verse 9 said “For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.” This is surely speaking to us today in a way that it did not speak to our ancestors. This is the time and day for those who trust in the Lord, who walk in righteousness and wait upon him, to begin to inherit the land. The day of the wicked is coming. God will deal with the evildoers in a way He has not in the past.
Revelation 19:11-16 "Now I saw Heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in Heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS."
Some have not understood that Jesus is riding on that white horse. This is that time spoken of in which he judges and makes war against His enemies and brings correction to His people. The reality is there is going to be judgments in 5 areas. Different areas of the country of course will be affected by different ones in different proportions, just like the housing crisis has hit some cities and states more than others. There has been a great darkness coming upon the land. Because with Obama’s election, Satan was given full and free access to the White House and by His own words, America is NOT a Christian nation. That is the first time an American president has made such a declaration.
But Obama declared this not just before the world but to God. He is saying, no to the heritage of America and its covenant with God. But, God will not allow that to stand. He will work to bring America back to Himself. And since He could not do that through blessing His people, He is doing it through judgments. God is always gracious to first try to reach His people with blessing. But America has not responded to God’s goodness and mercy. So, greater trials will come. The 9-11 disaster in 2001 was only the first sign of an impending greater judgment unless we responded in repentance.
Jer.18:7-12“The instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck it up and to pull it down, and to destroy it; 8 if that nation, against whom I have spoken, will turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do to them. 9 And the instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build it and to plant it; if it does evil in My sight, not to obey My voice, then I will repent of the good with which I said I would do them good. 11 Now then please, speak to the men of Judah, and to the people of Jerusalem, saying, So says Jehovah: Behold, I am forming evil against you, and devising a plan against you. Return now, each one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good. 12 And they said, There is no hope; but we will walk after our own ways, and we will each one do according to the stubbornness of his evil heart.” This is where America has been. The only hope for America is still 2Chronicles.7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Know that everything God does in this realm in which we live, is working for the good of His people and His purposes for them, even when he corrects them or brings judgment upon the wicked. The nations are nothing to God. SPANISH-Isa 40:15 “Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.”
From the beginning, America was dedicated to God and there was a covenant made with God for this nation by our founding fathers. And God deals differently with those people and nations that have made covenant with Him, in both blessing for their obedience and correction for their disobedience. America was always a nation that made laws and decisions based on that Christian heritage and DNA. However, that is no longer the case.
A serious change began with President Clinton. When he was in office, the people decided that it was okay if he lied. They didn’t care. He twisted words and changed meanings of words until things starting becoming blurred. When our leaders are wicked and we approve of it, we open up the door for Satan to move in, we give him place to take control. The difference between what was right and wrong began to change in the minds of the people as they accepted deception and lies and began to act like their president.
Absolutes were set aside for convenience and those who didn’t accept the compromises and deception were labeled as intolerant, first in the world and then in the church. All absolutes of our society began to rapidly deteriorate and disappear. That’s when the setup for what is happening today began. Many changes began in the banking and stock market realm which were the setup for what is now taking place. God put Clinton in place to set America up for economic judgment if we didn’t repent.
Then God gave us another chance in President Bush. It was about the will of the people, as Al gore put it, versus the will of God. God took control and overrode the will of the people. But the people didn’t like what God did even though they had the greatest time of economic growth in our history and they murmured and complained and wanted change, they wanted things their way. They got it and now they will pay the price because that is what Obama is here for. Yet, God can change even Obama’s heart.
I remember in the Bible a time when Israel told God what they wanted. They complained and demanded a change. He gave it to them, but the spiritual result was: Psa.106:15 “And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.” That has happened to most of the Church in America, leanness, no presence of the Spirit of God, only empty religion and they don’t even know what is happening, yet.
Isa 60:2-3 “For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.” God doesn’t want us to be taken in by the darkness that will cover the wicked, but that we should walk in the glorious light He will give to His people in this time of darkness in the world.
There is literally a spiritual and physical war going on for the soul of America. There is a war for control of the economy of America. There are economic forces wanting to destroy our economy. There will be war in the realm of religion. This is a spiritual war but there will be physical affects and persecution is coming. There is a political war going on for America that goes far beyond Republican and Democrat. There is still an ongoing physical war we are fighting in other countries that will continue for awhile. Then there will be increasing natural disasters called acts of nature or acts of God. It is not yet time, but there will come a time of unprecedented famine and death.
Trials, crisis and judgment are the result of following idols instead of God. It’s God allowing the people to reap the fruit of their ways, to receive according to what they have sown. The church wanted to have the best of the world, be like the world, be acceptable to the world and in so doing have became unacceptable to God. There is only one solution for our situation. SPANISH-Joel 2:12-14,17 “Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. 14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God? … 17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?“
Jer.29:13 “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”
Rev 19:14 “And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.” I believe the Lord here likens the Body of Christ to these on white horses. Truly, today He is calling us to ride with Him, but to do so we must be clothed in purity. The Father is wanting to train us to be as responsive to him as the highly trained royal lipizzan stallions! So much so that the very nudge of Your knee or Your glance in our direction, will cause us to understand what You want us to do and we will do it.
**Father, make me more sensitive to your spirit. More open and receptive to what you are doing in this day, knowing that you are making all things new. You are taking the greedy and crafty captive to their own wickedness. You are preparing a way of deliverance for your people. You are calling us to enlist in the army of heaven and to ride with you in robes of white, clothed in your righteousness. Bringing our kingdom from heaven to earth. Forgive us of our complacency, our apathy, our compromises and sanctify us with your blood and cause us to know what you have called us - not just to do, but to become in this hour – priests and kings unto our God, showing your glory to those around us in this world - that they may know there is a God in heaven, who reigns in the affairs of men.
