The LORD is exalted, for he dwells on high; He will fill Zion with His justice and righteousness. He will be the stability for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure. Isaiah 33:5-6.
There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” Luke 21:25-28.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
I am the stability of your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge. And all that is found in My Son. He is the rock on which to build your life, firmly rooted and grounded in Him, and you will not be shaken. He is Salvation, that is His Name and eternal life is found in Him. And in Him are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. And the key to acquiring all this treasure is the fear of the LORD.
“Fear of the LORD” simply means your ambition is to please Me wherever you are- whether on earth or in Heaven. Most people have a fear of men but not of Me in this sense. They try to please people to gain their favor or to seek their love but they do not always put importance on a relationship with Me.
Daniel had no fear of Me in the sense of punishment but He did have the fear of Me in that he would rather continue his relationship with Me than obey the king to save his life and preserve his position in the government. He refused to turn his back on Me to have favor with the king and save his life. So he ended up in the lion’s den but I preserved his life because he was clinging to Me and knew My Name. He had the true fear of the LORD and it was the key to all the treasures of wisdom, knowledge, and salvation. It kept him stable through three enemy empires where he found only favor and promotion for his wisdom and insight that was beyond his fellows. He was unshakeable.
The world is groaning now under its weight of corruption and it is looking for the manifestation of the Sons of God. Romans 8:19-21. It is going down in its final death pangs as it awaits its cleansing renewal and resurrection as new heavens and a new earth with the curse removed—just as things were when I first created them.
These are unstable times in the world system. You are watching the Babylonian system (which is man trying to live without Me) being shaken. But for you who are My children, know that you have been born from above—from an unshakeable Kingdom. My throne is established forever in Heaven.
So this is not a time for fear and sadness for believers but a time for the glory to shine on you. It is a time for great rejoicing! For you who once lived in darkness I have translated into the Kingdom of My dear Son who is the Light of the world. No follower of His walks in darkness but has the light of life. A people walking in darkness have seen a great light and on those in a land of gloom, light has shone. And I will increase your gladness until it overflows, as one makes merry over the harvest and as one rejoices when dividing the spoils. For a child was born to you and a Son given you and on His shoulders dominion rests. And He is yours.
So hold your heads high for you know the signs of the times mean He is near, even at your door! So your deliverance is close at hand.
And I will raise up the fallen planet in newness of life, cleansed of the curse, so that it can share in the freedom and glory of My children.
In the midst of the chaos in the world that is beginning to manifest with ever greater force at this time, and it will only get worse, keep Me as your sure foundation, as the stability of your times.
There are tough times coming for the world, but stand firm and you will win life. Luke 21:19.
But how do you stand firm? By the fear of the Lord. But how to you arrive at that? I have told you how to stand strong in storms. It is by building your life on a foundation of solid rock. And the rock is Christ and He is My Word. Fear of the Lord means you delight in Me and in My Word. Everyone who hears My Words and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears My Words and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash. Matthew 7:24-27.
You need to stand on My Word. You need to cling to My Word. You need to believe My Word no matter how insecure your life and finances look. And I will be your stability, I will be your rock of refuge, your place of safety, keeping you strong and triumphant in these troublesome days.
And My Son is My Word made flesh. So you must be rooted and grounded in Christ to stand strong in storms and perilous times.
Above all do not permit fear to enter your hearts causing you to doubt and go under. Put on My full armor and stand. Wield the sword of the spirit and hold up the shield of faith to combat the evil one. Speak My Word and nothing else.
Fight the good fight of faith. Which is fought entirely with thoughts and words. Do not give in. It is a good fight. And if you join in fellowship with others who know and love My Word you can have good fun facing the fight together.
And you will see signs, wonders and miracles.
I am greater than all and I am above all. I make all things work together for good for those who love Me and are called according to My purpose. I will never leave you or forsake you. Rely on this and learn to lean on Me. I will always come through for you. Just do not give up and do not fear. It takes faith and patience to inherit My promises.
I tell you to seek first My Kingdom and My righteousness (not your own but Mine, which can never change) and all else will be supplied that you need. Believe that and seek Me above all else and receive the gift of righteousness and the abundance of grace and sin will have no power over you.
Let Me act in your life. And know that I will.
Never despair or lose your hope. Hope has great reward and will not disappoint.
You can do all things in Me, but you can do nothing without Me. Do not think you have to, or even can, make it on your own. I need you to be willing and obey so that you can eat the good of the land but I will take care of the rest.
You must be willing to do whatever I tell you to do and obey instantly if you want good results, if you want success in your life.
You must walk by faith in My Word and not by sight. Look into My perfect law of liberty and know that it works and will set you free from fear in these perilous times.
I am your shelter and your great reward. You have nothing to fear. You have been redeemed from the curse of the law by the death of My Son. Receive Jesus as Lord and rest in the finished work of Christ and the Blessings will chase you down and overtake you. Deuteronomy 28:2.
If you really believed this you could do nothing but rejoice. You would have stability in these unstable times. You would be built on the foundation of My Word and nothing else would move you.
Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, for in seeing Him you are seeing Me, and do whatever I tell you. With My grace you can overcome anything and receive anything. I do not depend on the world’s economy. I rule a Kingdom that is far above anything you could imagine. There is no shortage or lack in My Kingdom. And it has pleased Me to give the Kingdom to you.
My Son has made you all kings and priests. And the word of a king has authority. Use your words well. Walk by faith by your words.
I love you. Rest with confidence in Me and do not fear. Test yourself to see if you are living in faith and are doing My Word. You will only have stability in these times if you hear My Word and put it into practice. Do not be a hearer only but take in the Word and let it dwell in you richly. Follow My Word completely to be on the foundation of solid rock that can withstand any storm. For I am shaking the heavens and the earth and whatever is not built on the foundation of My Son is coming down. But you who are on the rock will go to new heights as if on eagle’s wings.
