“Trust in the LORD forever, for in LORD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock. For He has brought low those who dwell on high, the unassailable city; He lays it low, He lays it low to the ground, He casts it to the dust. The foot will trample it, the feet of the afflicted, the steps of the helpless.” Isaiah 26:5-6.
Shake yourself from the dust, rise up, O captive Jerusalem. Loose yourself from the chains around your neck, O captive daughter of Zion. Isaiah 52:2.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Forgetting what lies behind. Sometimes that is what you need to do to go forward to the future that I have for you. Your sins and offenses I remember no more, I put them all on Jesus and took them out of the way of your connection with Me. In Him you are holy, blameless and beyond reproach before Me. I cleared the way to My throne of grace. I made you royalty. I made you a kingdom of priests, a holy nation, a royal priesthood, a sanctified people set apart shining like bright lights in a world covered in a veil of darkness that keeps it out of My marvelous light. Isaiah 25:7. A veil over their minds that Satan has blinded them with to the light. 2 Corinthians 4:3-6. But the light is shining beyond that veil. And when Jesus died for your sins the veil was split in two from top to bottom. Matthew 27:51. I split it from above all the way to the depths of the nether world. Isn’t it time you stepped out of the darkness into My own marvelous light? The year of My radiance has dawned and it is getting brighter and brighter until it reaches perfect day when you shall see Me face to face and your joy will be beyond all you can ask or think and there will be no night. So arise and shine, for your Light has come, and My glory has risen upon you. Darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples, but upon you will rise the Sun of righteousness with His healing rays and My glory will appear upon you, and nations and kings will come to the brightness of your light, for My light becomes yours. Isaiah 60:1-3. Lift up your eyes off the dust.
It is time to go past information to revelation and manifestation. And if you will run forward with Me you will experience the greatest move of My Spirit over the darkness that is in the world that has taken place since I said, “Light be!” I am about to shake the heavens and the earth and everything that is not on the rock foundation of My Word—everything that is not of Me—will scatter like dust that the wind drives away. The walls won’t crash, they will crush and scatter like chaff from the summer threshing floor and the wind will carry them away so that not a trace can be found. Daniel 2:31-35, Matthew 21:44.
Dust. The dust of death.
Everything that is not of Me and Mine is dust and to dust it shall return. But what is Mine goes with Me; it cannot be shaken. It cannot be crushed. My Son was crushed for you and went down to the dust of death for you all. Now you can shake off the dust and live a life of significance. Isaiah 26:5-6. A life that does not blow away like chaff before the wind when you come before Me in the glory of eternity. You are My masterpiece created anew in Christ Jesus—born from on high of imperishable seed, with good works prepared for you in advance that you might walk in them. Pure gold. A solid rock on which you stand. A cornerstone, precious and strong that will not shake or be as shifting sand.
Jesus told the unbelieving Pharisees: “Did you never read in the Scriptures, ‘The stone which the builders rejected, this became the chief corner stone; this came about from the LORD, and it is marvelous in our eyes’? Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people, producing the fruit of it. And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust.” Matthew 21:42-44. Like dust that the wind drives away. Without Christ, you can do nothing. Nothing wonderful, nothing lasting, nothing fruitful, nothing eternal. I have made Him to be wisdom unto you, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. In Him, your life will not be as the dust that the wind drives away. It will stand in the beauty of holiness, established in righteousness, far from oppression, planted in My courts, bearing fruit even in old age, full of sap and very green. Psalm 92.
Do you remember that Nebuchadnezzar had a dream that troubled his spirit so that sleep left him? Daniel 2:1. He could not remember the details but he knew it had a deep meaning. So he called for all the soothsayers, sorcerers, and Chaldeans to interpret his dream, but they could not. No one could until My servant Daniel asked Me to reveal the mystery to him. I did as he requested. When you are in trouble, ask Me first for the interpretation and revelation of your mystery.
So Daniel went to the king and told him what he had seen: “You, O king, were looking and behold, there was a single great statue; that statue, which was large and of extraordinary splendor, was standing in front of you, and its appearance was awesome. The head of that statue was made of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. You continued looking until a stone was cut out without hands, and it struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and crushed them. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were crushed all at the same time and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away so that not a trace of them was found. But the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.” Daniel 2:31-35.
The kingdoms of the earth, no matter how powerful, how rich, how glorious they appear, if they do not have Me as their foundation, in fact, many deny I exist at all and persecute those who believe, go down one by one to the dust of the earth and are trampled underfoot by the feet of the descendants of those they afflicted never to rise again. Isaiah 26:5-6. Those who dwell on high in positions of national authority, thinking they are unassailable and above My Words, above My laws, who oppress and condemn, will be brought low to the ground, cast to the dust. And it will be trampled underfoot by the feet of the afflicted, the steps of the helpless. Isaiah 26:5-6. Archeologists understand this, the walls of Jericho sunk down and disintegrated into dust, like the world trade towers, but once they dug under Jericho, they were amazed to find multiple cities that had all gone down under the dust.
But a city set on a hill cannot be hidden. And so it is when you are established in Jesus and the church of the first born on the heavenly Mt. Zion, perfect in beauty, from which I shine forth. The things connected to My Kingdom cannot be shaken. Paul said nothing moved him. Psalm 112 tells you that the righteous man cannot be shaken.
On Mt. Sinai, My voice shook the earth then, but now I have promised, saying, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heaven.” When I say, “Yet once more,” this denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since you have received a Kingdom which cannot be shaken, be thankful and show gratitude so others also see your heart of praise, by which you offer acceptable service with reverence and awe; for I AM a consuming fire. Love is a fire that purifies and cleans out all that is not love. Moses witnessed the burning bush, yet the bush itself was not consumed. You will live but the fire of M love burning in your heart will take out all the dust and clutter of wood, hay and stubble. Let Me pour My love in your heart by the gift of the Holy Spirit and consume in you all that would hinder the work of the Kingdom in your life. Kingdom living is dominion living, it is reigning in life through Christ Jesus. It is having the devil and all the evil he brings under your feet as you sit above in heavenly places with Christ. There is no dust there. The devil eats dust. He crawls in it.
Do not put your mind down in earthly lusts, fear, hatred, revenge, confusion, depression and bitterness. These will turn your life into a “zero” that will be like the chaff that the wind blows away. Anything done without love is worthless. And I am love, so anything done without Me is worthless, it is but dust and ashes that the wind drives away. What have you been doing today? If you have been dwelling on thoughts of fear, anxiety, selfish ambition, jealousy, envy, malice, strife, bitterness, reproach, ill will towards others and yourself, taking and not giving, speaking contrary to the promises in My Word, oppressing and being offensive to others, then you are living in the dust and to dust it shall all return. There is nothing there I can reward, and if you are a believer you will be saved but all you have done will go up in smoke and the wind will drive away the ashes and debris of a useless life. Like the fig tree that bore no fruit.
But if you are dwelling in thoughts of love, prayer for others, service, victory, praise, thanksgiving, compassion, joy, faith in Me and My Word, and putting My Word into practice as first place in your life, your life will be on solid rock and the edifice of your life is a magnificent palace where My Spirit dwells and powerfully operates to BLESS the world through, with and in you. People will be grateful for your life. Your light will shine and draw the world to My Holy Mountain where I dwell—to Mt. Zion and the church of the first born. If you will let Me, I will give you beauty for your ashes. You will be the wheat gathered into My barn and not the chaff, driven away by the wind into the outer darkness.
Do you still not understand how important every moment of your life is? Don’t waste it, but redeem the time. Jesus is the Way. Walk in the Way, the new and living Way. Be in the world, but not of the world. Be kind. Be forgiving. Do not conform to the dust but be transformed by the renewal of your mind and put your mind above where you are seated with Christ at My right hand. Take dominion and move those mountains of dust out of your life. Focus is key.
Everything that is not of Me is dust and is trampled underfoot, just as people walk over ancient cities unaware that there they lie below the dust. But there is a nation that seemed dormant for a time, but it was not, the stump of Jesse was just waiting to blossom. Israel. I founded it. It was founded on My Word and is sustained by My Word and you will see it through all the Bible. And My Son will rule from the throne of David therein for a thousand years and then the end will come when all things are under His feet and He hands the Kingdom over to Me as we fill all in all. And My Heavenly city? It is Jerusalem on High.
As Daniel foretold, who saw that stone that took down every kingdom of the world and crushed it to dust, and then that stone became a mountain filling the entire world, so shall it be. He wrote of the vision of the kingdoms of the world, “The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth, which will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it. As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings. He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the holy people of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. But the court will sit and his dominion will be taken away, annihilated and destroyed forever. Then the sovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.” Daniel 7:23-27.
I love you. Everything that is not of Me will go down into the dust and blow away till you see it no more. As if it had never been. Do not put your trust in so fragile a kingdom, that is the realm of darkness, the domain of the world without Me. Do not think you are so “progressive” that you have progressed beyond Me. I am the Most High and there is none higher and never will be. Love and Light are supreme, for Love and Light alone have the ability to transform all that will allow them to enter into themselves. If you will come to Me, I will transform you. And I will raise you up out of the dust and seat you with princes, with royalty, in Heavenly places. Do not ignore so great a salvation and live your life in the dust of death. There is a better way, a new and living way, and I have given you the right to walk upon it. Come to Me. I will give you rest.
