Then the LORD answered me and said, “Write down the vision and inscribe it clearly on tablets, so that one who reads it may run. For the vision is yet for the appointed time. It hurries toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it delays, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay. Habakkuk 2:2-3.
And they said to him, “We have had a dream, and there is no one to interpret it.” Then Joseph said to them, “Do interpretations not belong to God? Tell it to me, please.” Genesis 40:8.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
A vision leads to provision. Do not fear I am with you. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified nor dismayed, for I, the LORD your God am with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9.
Anything you undertake for My glory and to bring the Kingdom to earth is not idle time, it brings blessings divine. Showers of blessing. It builds a holy hill, an ancient landmark restored. Proverbs 22:28. It takes down a stronghold of the enemy and builds a fortress of the living God.
But there are paths of protocol that do not differ over time. There is a way of integrity that cannot be compromised. There is a way that seems right to a man that ends in death. All must be done in the Light.
What is the protocol I am speaking of? Jesus explains, “For I did not speak on My own, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak. And I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me.” John 12:49-50. Everything must be done in accordance with My Word. And that is the protocol. In a way it is similar to how the Israelites crossed the desert to the Promised Land directed by the cloud of My glory. When the cloud lifted and began to move, they broke camp, got in formation, and followed the cloud of My glory in the order I had given them. I had placed ranks of authority and given each a job and a place and if everyone did as I had assigned there was no confusion and perfect travel, but if even one got out of his or her assignment there was disorder, confusion, and the evil work of strife and rebellion. Like the ones who tried to take the leadership of Moses and Aaron as their own. They went under in the desert. When you are moving myriads of people each one has to be pulling his own load and not trying to get ahold of someone else’s that looks more important. You are all important and each one of you has a place in the vision, but if you won’t run with your part in unity with the others it will stop the progress and the Promise Land will not be attained. When there is jealousy and strife, along with self-righteousness, there is every evil work.
Instead walk in the light and humbly confess your sins, if you say you have no sin, be careful, most likely you are lying. But when you bring it in the light, the Blood of My Son cleanses you of all unrighteousness and He makes you holy and blameless in My sight. But be careful lest you think you did it all yourself. You can do nothing without Him. You are the branches; He is the vine. Do not get that mixed up.
When you get a vision to do something for the Kingdom, you first must have a plan. Pharaoh had a dream (two times) but he had no understanding or the plan. Joseph had the understanding and the plan and Pharaoh acknowledged that. He went with the plan but he ran with Joseph, and he let Joseph take the lead and give the directions. And Joseph, like Jesus, got his directions from Me, and like Jesus, and later Peter, John, and Paul, he gave the credit to Me. “Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I have had a dream, but no one can interpret it; and I have heard it said about you, that when you hear a dream you can interpret it.” Joseph then answered Pharaoh, saying, “It has nothing to do with me; God will give Pharaoh an answer for his own good.” Genesis 41:15-16. And I did. And Pharaoh gave Me glory, “Then Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find a man like this, in whom there is a divine spirit?” So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has informed you of all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you are. You shall be in charge of my house, and all my people shall be obedient to you; only regarding the throne will I be greater than you.” Genesis 41:38-40.
Humility comes before honor, but it brings riches and honor.
My Son is the Light of the world, he who follows Him will not walk in darkness but will have the Light of life. John 8:12. Now if you are going to build a tower, what do I tell you to do? “For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost, to see if he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who are watching it will begin to ridicule him, saying, ‘This person began to build, and was not able to finish!’” Luke 14:38-40. I have given building assignments to a number of people over the years such as Noah, Moses, David and Solomon, Ezra, and Nehemiah. For Noah, I provided the material all around him, it just had to be gathered and built together in the way I showed him. And with Moses again I gave him the plans and provided the material, I had given all the people the wealth of the Egyptians, but then I told Moses to raise a contribution so they would give it back to Me to build My dwelling place. And the people responded. He had to fund raise, so to speak, though I had provided the funds, but in that way, I gave all the people the chance to have a part in the work. And for the temple that Solomon built, David donated his wealth and then he raised a contribution from all those who were his mighty men. And the second temple that was built after the first was destroyed was funded by pagan kings by whom My people were held captive but they also sought contributions from the people of their nation to supplement their gift.
Everyone had a part that way and all gained glory in the enterprise. Never despise small beginnings. Before a seed produces fruit, it has to take root. The seed seems to be doing nothing when it is planted for a period of time but it is putting down a root system to find a water source. You too when you have a vision must seek the stream of income. You have to lay down your root system first. And not one way fits all, but the beginning of all ventures is prayer for nothing is too wonderful for Me.
Just as I gave Noah, Moses, David, Solomon, Ezra, and Nehemiah the plan and the provision, so I can for you. I planned to fund Moses more than four hundred years before when I shared it with Abraham! Do not think I have not been mindful of what you need and have not already prepared it. I gave you Jesus before the foundation of the world in My plans for you. I knew what I would do before the need arose to do it. But I know what you need before you ask Me but it won’t come to pass until you ask. Many of you have not because you ask not.
Isn’t it time to take possession of your possessions? I have qualified you to share the inheritance of the saints in light. And what is that inheritance? The Kingdom. And I already gave it to you. Jesus died so you inherited. It has pleased Me to give you the Kingdom. You have it now.
Isn’t it time you claimed your inheritance? It is beautiful indeed.
So offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on My Name. Psalm 92:27. Then let us dream and make plans together, for in these later days I promised that: “It will come about after this that I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your old men will have dreams, your young men will see visions. And even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.” Joel 2:28-29; Acts 2:17.
I love you. Isn’t it time you ran with My good and perfect plan?
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
