COVENANT RENEWED by Bill and Marsha Burns:
We are on a distinct prophetic journey marked by the power of grace that will awaken us to a distinct spiritual reality for this season. This time will be charted by defining moments that present choices -- either wise or foolish, led by the Spirit of God or by carnality. We are in the prophetic early-morning, fourth watch of the third day of Christ, the beginning of the third millennium since Christ. We must stay in the flow and life of the Holy Spirit or we will find ourselves in bitterness of soul and spirit. The countdown has begun that will take us to the end, but there is still a long way to go and much to accomplish.
Deuteronomy 29:1 These are the words of the covenant which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, besides the covenant which He made with them in Horeb.
This is our second covenant of blessings. If we choose not to take responsibility to fulfill our part of the covenant by doing what God has given us to do, we will find ourselves in poverty both spiritually and naturally. But, if we reconnect with our God-given covenant, we will be established in a time of blessing. It is necessary that we be found in Zion, the city of God, regardless of what it takes to get there. There the Spirit of God will dominate our spiritual landscape and carry us to kingdom destiny.
The purpose of the enemy is to remove God’s people from life and freedom and re-establish old bondages. His tactic is to recapture what he lost. And we say in unison, “Not on our watch!” We can gain great wisdom by reflecting on the ancient pathways and broken covenants that resulted in ruin. However, we are reminded that we, the people of God, are still in the season of the horse, and that we have been given apostolic power for war that will gain us the victory.
We are in perilous times that require the protection of the Lord. Safety is found in re-establishing and maintaining covenant. Even in the midst of danger and poverty all around, we are blessed and prospering. And, we will be given new boundaries that are necessary for our provision and security.
