Embracing the Wind

May 31, 2009

Three topics have been on my heart for the past few days. But when I came out here to begin placing them into words, I found myself completely “blocked” as it were, from starting any of them. Two are pressing, and one involves a pondring of a future event. Yet something is more urgent and it comes in the form of the following link:

TURN YOUR FACE INTO THE WIND (Five Peas In A Pod)

For the saints, we’re in a time of preparation,refining, and separating from the former things that we identified with. The link above recalls a prophetic word that came forth in June of 1987 but is even more urgent in this present hour. It discusses the wind of the Holy Spirit blowing through the land and removing anything that’s not founded upon the rock of Jesus Christ. (I’m paraphrasing) It tells how many saints will observe the seemingly disasterous fallout from this and unwittingly think that the enemy is causing the devastation. Many will not understand that it’s the Lords working as everything that’s not of him is being removed. We’re further called to place our complete confidence in the Lord and “face the wind.” The only things that will be removed are those things which are not of God.

Another thought came to mind as I was going over the prophecy. The wind of the Holy Spirit will also remove any dead weights that we’ve been carrying around. This may entail some unpleasant circumstances, but we should embrace that which the Lord is doing as it will bring us closer to him and prepare us for anything that lies ahead. The eternal benefits of this cleansing far outweigh any earthly unpleasentries. It’s imperative to have our “all” on the altar, our hearts completely upon Jesus, and remember that he will finish the good work that he has begun in us. (Philippians 1:6)

It must have been over two years ago when during one of his broadcasts,  Steve Quayle relayed the story of visiting a goldsmith who was refining some pieces. The goldsmith stated “you must get the right temperature. If you make it too hot, you’ll ruin the piece.” Steve asked him “how do you know when you have the right temperature?” The goldsmith replied “When you see your reflection in the piece, the temperature is right.” As with the piece of gold, so it is with us. The fiery trial will not ruin us. (although we may think that it’s too much)  It will be just enough to bring forth a greater reflection of Jesus. The priceless souls around us need to see this reflection of Jesus.

Well, I’ll be going for now. Please check out the prophecy and even make some copies for others. This isn’t a fearful event when we understand what’s taking place. Until next time, blessings always in Jesus name.

Hebrews 12:26-29 “Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also the heaven.
And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
Therefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
For our God is a consuming fire.”

  1. Hi Timbob,

    Thank God there is a purpose in those fiery trials in that through them, we might become more like Jesus. He does know just exactly what we can take and has promised not to put more on us than we are able to bear. May the difficulties and testings that He allows in our life cause us to draw closer to Him and be the holy people that He would desire us to be. Hope you have a great weekend. Tomorrow is Pentecost Sunday!

    Blessings,

    Carol


  2. Please pray that God opens a door for me to speak with my manager openly about his salvation soon. He’s attended church with me off and on for the past six months and my heart feels heavy. I’m also flying my youngest brother out to see me in order to speak to him also about his relationship with God. Life is so short and one doesn’t know what the next day holds.

    I don’t know if you knew this, but David Meyer’s did a sermon series on the book of Revelation. It’s on his website and you can download the sermons. They re-vamped the site a bit, and it’s easier to navigate through.

    Pray that you are well. Many blessings to you and your family.


  3. I also started listening to Jack Van Impe. I don’t know if you’re familiar with him or not. His presentation is a bit strange at first, but he seems to have a lot of good information.


  4. I like to think of us in this story as God’s currency… that we are to spend ourselves with God’s image on our hearts. I wish i could recall the name of the piece I wrote about this… I think it was something like God’s currency… that image is relevant to the way americans think.

    thank you, as always for sharing


  5. Good morning in Jesus name. I apolagize for combining responses, but time has been in short supply as of late due to incredible circumstances at home.

    Carol: I was reminded of something that I’ve unwittingly found myself doing on a number of occasions. During certain situations, I would cry out “Lord; this is too much for….” only to have to stop and change directions because it was turning into an unscriptural prayer. The Lord does not place us in situations that are beyond us, but anything that does come our way, he’ll bring us through. This is very comforting.

    Code: CR has been listening to Jack Van Impe as of lae, but I’m not too familiar with him as of yet. I’ll keep your younger brother and manager in prayer along with your household. The sense of urgency seems to be resonating with many saints.

    Cindy: Interesting analogy. I’ll have to swing by and try to find the post that you wrote about Gods Currency. May those around us see Jesus in us continually; both in our words and our actions.

    Thanks to all for stopping by. Blessings always in Jesus name.
