Are we living in the reality of the prophetic?
Those of us who have been graced by having had our inner eyes open to the history of the Word of Elohim (especially that which pertains to the two houses of Israel and their destiny) have a serious responsibility. One such obligation is to proclaim the good news of the Almighty’s faithfulness to carry out and fulfill all that has been prophetically spoken by the prophets of old, especially in this dark hour. Being aware that often YHVH hides or camouflages His most momentous actions, we should be cognizant of the fact that the plan is not suffering a regression, quite on the contrary. We should thus mobilize all of our forces in order to keep the vision alive, and as mentioned, to be diligent in proclaiming it and having our ears open as to Abba’s continued instructions in this unique chapter of human history.
I often think of the women in scripture who at times seemed to have had a keener sense of spiritual realities than their male counterparts, and have been used to proclaim or declare truth. Some of these women were even willing to give up their lives for the sake of righteousness. We have to ask, who did Elohim use to be the first to announce the good news of Yeshua’s resurrection? But then what was the reaction of the great men who walked with the Master to the woman (Miriam of Migdal) who came to them with this astounding information?
Women/wives many times are frustrated when their men are lagging behind in their mission to carry out the mandate that they (the men) have been given. We all have heard the saying, “behind every great man is a woman.” Psalm 68:11-12 describes an outstanding scene: “YHVH gives the command; the women who proclaim the good tidings are a great army: Kings of armies flee, they flee, and she who remains at home will divide the spoil!” What?! A women’s army having victory while the armies of kings suffer defeat?! Where today can we find such an army of women who have the vision of the biblical prophets? The greatest threat to Satan’s authority and kingdom is the restoration of the identity of the lost sheep of the house of Israel/Joseph, and their recognition by the house of Judah and of course the latter’s acknowledgement of their Messiah.
The entire history of the house of Jacob has been recorded throughout the pages of Scripture. But now, at the climax of this age, the Holy One of Israel is revealing His faithfulness to bring to completion the work that He started four thousand years ago, when He made an everlasting covenant with our forefathers. He is not called the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob/Israel for nothing. We are His redeemed witnesses to these ancient eternal covenants. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. The redeemed women of Israel have a mandate (along with the men) to proclaim the good news of Israel/Joseph’s resurrection and restoration through prayer, intercession and by being a source of inspiration of faith. We must all join forces at this crucial hour and rise to the occasion, setting our view toward that which is ahead, beyond the immediate restrictive and distorted conditions of the present (and that which is about to ensue in the very near future).
“Therefore thus says YHVH, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, ‘Jacob shall not now be ashamed, nor shall his face now turn pale; But when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst, they will sanctify My name; Indeed, they will sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and will stand in awe of the Elohim of Israel. And those who err in mind will know the truth, and those who criticize will accept instruction’” (Isaiah 29:22 – 30:1).
