Prepare for war

Joel 3
The Message (MSG)
God Is a Safe Hiding Place

3 1-3 “In those days, yes, at that very time
    when I put life back together again for Judah and Jerusalem,
I’ll assemble all the godless nations.
    I’ll lead them down into Judgment Valley
And put them all on trial, and judge them one and all
    because of their treatment of my own people Israel.
They scattered my people all over the pagan world
    and grabbed my land for themselves.
They threw dice for my people
    and used them for barter.
They would trade a boy for a whore,
    sell a girl for a bottle of wine when they wanted a drink.
4-8 “As for you, Tyre and Sidon and Philistia,
    why should I bother with you?
Are you trying to get back at me
    for something I did to you?
If you are, forget it.
    I’ll see to it that it boomerangs on you.
You robbed me, cleaned me out of silver and gold,
    carted off everything valuable to furnish your own temples.
You sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem
    into slavery to the Greeks in faraway places.
But I’m going to reverse your crime.
    I’m going to free those slaves.
I’ll have done to you what you did to them:
    I’ll sell your children as slaves to your neighbors,
And they’ll sell them to the far-off Sabeans.”
    God’s Verdict.
9-11 Announce this to the godless nations:
    Prepare for battle!
Soldiers at attention!
    Present arms! Advance!
Turn your shovels into swords,
    turn your hoes into spears.
Let the weak one throw out his chest
    and say, “I’m tough, I’m a fighter.”
Hurry up, pagans! Wherever you are, get a move on!
    Get your act together.
Prepare to be
    shattered by God!
12 Let the pagan nations set out
    for Judgment Valley.
There I’ll take my place at the bench
    and judge all the surrounding nations.
13 “Swing the sickle—
    the harvest is ready.
Stomp on the grapes—
    the winepress is full.
The wine vats are full,
    overflowing with vintage evil.
14 “Mass confusion, mob uproar—
    in Decision Valley!
God’s Judgment Day has arrived
    in Decision Valley.
15-17 “The sky turns black,
    sun and moon go dark, stars burn out.
God roars from Zion, shouts from Jerusalem.
    Earth and sky quake in terror.
But God is a safe hiding place,
    a granite safe house for the children of Israel.
Then you’ll know for sure
    that I’m your God,
Living in Zion,
    my sacred mountain.
Jerusalem will be a sacred city,
    posted: ‘no trespassing.

PREPARE FOR WAR

Pastor Chingtok Ishaku

Joel 3

God is not under obligation to protect what he did not initiate.

The reason why believers are put down is because they don’t have the culture of hearing his voice.

Fear is a foothold through which the devil executes his agenda.

Only in God you find a relationship that there is no lose only gain.

Many of us want to fight a battle physically, that we have lost in the mind.

The mind is where the battle is.

You cannot end in the flesh what you began in the spirit.

It is not what people say about you, it is whether it is true or false.

In warfare you must follow the leading of the spirit in the minutes.

A spiritual man does not move by the observation of the wind.

Warfare is waiting upon the word of the Lord.

 

Isa 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

 

Waiting on the Lord is without agenda.

A believer waits as long as the word of the Lord comes.

If we don’t learn the custom of waiting on the lord, then we will raise another common generation.

The works we do can be referred to as the works of God.

The reason why we copy people is because we have not received the word of the lord for us.

We must learn to wait until we’ve received the word of the lord.

People are not laboring, that is why we can’t make a good warfare.

Only by the Lord that you can make impact.

It is Christ in you that is the hope of glory, not yourselves

The arm of flesh cannot fulfill the will of God.

Php 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. 

God has never being threatened by the activity of Satan.

God can sit in the agenda of Satan still fulfill his will.

God only brings a nation to the valley of decision when the time of change is about to come.

Everybody who ever rose to prominence in the valley of Jehoshaphat (valley of decision) rose because he had a word from the Lord.

The time for the harvest is now.

Don’t be quick to bind every pressure, because peradventure the lord is bringing us to the valley of decisions.

Pastor Francis Yusuf

Psa 1:1  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

Psa 1:2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

Psa 1:3  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psa 1:4  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Psa 1:5  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

Psa 1:6  For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Love God’s process, it’s the best thing that can happen to you.

The only safety we have is in God.

There is no safety in the world. Build your arc, so that you can abide in safety.

We are in the last times, and iniquity will abound, but our safety is in God.

We must awake to the leading of the Spirit.

God must take us deeper in to the realities of God.

You must keep the right company.

The right company is not just people, but it’s the word of the Lord.

Build your life around God’s word.

Your training is for relationship, not to be used.

Character can’t hold you, neither can morality do.

We must stay with God’s word.

Your tongue must be sandpapered with God’s word.

God’s word is our only assurance and comfort.

Believe God’s word, and don’t calculate it.

Delight in His word.
