Being Ready For The New Season
Every time when God is opening up a new season for His church it is important for us as people of God to be ready for the move of the Holy Spirit who brings transformation to His house in the earth realm.
This transformation is linked to the greater glory like a caterpillar transforms at the right time to a butterfly.
As Jesus came at God's appointed time as a human into the earth realm, change began to happen in the house of God by the presence of the greater light (see John 1:1-5).
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Change And Confrontation
The change in Jesus time began with the confrontation of the hearts of the people and it is still happening today.
The power of the Holy Spirit is moving according to the command(ment) of God.
The Hebrew word for “commandment” is “peh” and means “mouth” which is linked to blowing and breathing.
Jesus said that the Holy Spirit is moving with the sound of His words to reveal its truth (see John 16:13-15).
13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
14 He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.
15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”
The Transformation And The Greater Glory
The transformation of God's house on earth is linked to the greater glory as the prophet Haggai prophesied (see Haggai 2:9).
9 ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.”
This increasing glory is connected to shaking which must come to reveal the unshakable and to bring to the surface the blessing of God for this time (see Haggai 2:6-8 i.c.w. Hebrews 12:26-29).
6 “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land.
7 I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty.
8 ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the Lord Almighty.
26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”
27 The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”
The Wedding At Cana And The Time Of Job
There is a relation between the time of Job and the time of the wedding at Cana, which means that something good came to an end which paved the way for something even more beautiful.
At the wedding at Cana it was the wine, which went out and was replaced by Jesus with water, that turned by serving (cooping and delivering) into the best sweet wine.
In Job's time, it were his seven sons and three daughters, who understood how to celebrate (Job 1:1-2.4).
1 In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil.
2 He had seven sons and three daughters, …
4 His sons used to hold feasts in their homes on their birthdays, and they would invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them.
At this feast season his daughters had an important position for the opening of the celebration of the day that is equal to the threefold cord as it is written in Ecclesiastes 4:12.
12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Also Jesus said that there is increase of His presence if we gather by two or three (see Matthew 18:20).
“ … 20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
The seven sons of Job lived in a cycle of celebration that God finished after the first feast cycle was completed (see Job 1:4.18-19).
4 His sons used to hold feasts in their homes on their birthdays, and they would invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. …
18 While he was still speaking, yet another messenger came and said, “Your sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother’s house, 19 when suddenly a mighty wind swept in from the desert and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed on them and they are dead, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!”
The Day Of Visitation
Based on this passage, we can see that God finished the feast cycle of the week (seven days – seven sons) on the eighth day (in the house of the firstborn son of Job) through a mighty wind which represents the day of visitation. Through it a new feast season heralded, which was connected to a time of labor pains for Job.
God revealed to Job in the time of birth pangs (letting go an old season and receiving a new season) His power and His voice through the storm of “divine questions” (see Job 38:1).
1 Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said: …
These questions were made by God to Job to show him His greatness, order and that He was in control over everything.
The Glory Of The House Of The Last Adam
To summarize all of this, it means that God finished one season of His glory that was linked to the “old house” (first Adam), to pave the way for the greater glory of the new – spiritual house (last Adam; see 1 Corinthians 15:44-45) which is in turn connected to the newborn seven sons and newborn three daughters of Job, who had now names related to them.
Job lost his seven sons and three daughters in the past but he got them back from God in the future in a new way.
It is no coincidence that the book of Job mentions not the names of the newborn sons but only the names of his newborn daughters (see Job 42:13-15).
13 And he also had seven sons and three daughters.
14 The first daughter he named Jemimah (means dove => spirit filled saints in the Bride of Christ) the second Keziah (means motherly cinnamon and is derived from a Hebrew root word that means to bow down => humility and expression of adoration) and the third Keren-Happuch (means horn of beauty – a horn for make-up => governmental beauty).
15 Nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job’s daughters, and their father granted them an inheritance along with their brothers.
The greater glory in the new house directs to the season in which God allows us to enter into His fulfilled creative and established plans for us to enjoy His blessing in our field of authority as well to administer through obedience like Adam the entrusted things of God (see Genesis 2:8.15).
8 Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. …
15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.
God is calling us to enter into the eighth day which means into His house of His only begotten son (Jesus – the last Adam) to receive the increase of His wind and fire for this time (see Acts 2:1-4).
1 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.
2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.
3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.
4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues (languages) as the Spirit enabled them.
Amen and Amen.
In His Wisdom,
