Our Timeline: If You Only Knew – Ps Sharon Bendixen (WTB)
The highest calling is to manifest as a mature son of God.
The whole of creation is groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God. The five-fold ministry is given by God for one reason only – to bring the body of Christ to full mature sonship.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-2 (KJV) – The Greek word Day (of the Lord) means: a time period when Jesus comes to do something specific at a very strategic time.
It’s important to God that you and I know the Day of our visitation, that we understand where we find ourselves on God’s timeline so that we can cooperate completely with Him.
This is our time; Jesus is visiting us with very specific things:
The sower sows the Word; into the heart. That Word hits the ground of your heart (for light trees to spring forth). God resuscitates us from His mouth to our mouth. When you are personal and private and powerful with God you come for mouth-to-mouth.
God actually wants you to come to Him, personally. Some of you not yet abiding? Why are you not obeying the Word of God that comes from the pulpit? Don’t wait, don’t put it off.
Don’t say you are not a morning person – that’s nonsense.
You are exactly the sum total of your words. Find your morning person in the Bible. Speak Scripture every morning: Psalm 22:1; Psalm 46:5; Psalm 55:17; Psalm 59:16; Psalm 88:32; Mark 1:35; Isaiah 50:4; Psalm 119:147. The Word of God will supersede your natural morning tiredness. He will waken you morning by morning, your ears ready to hear like a disciple.
God said, “I am giving all My children so much light, light, light, light in the hope that maybe some of it they’ll let a little in – maybe one day. But My Light will never stop shining”.
The receiving of the light is the beginning point of it. You receive it; then you believe it; then you say it; then you walk in it (when your actions and words are being changed). A Christian could go through their whole life just receiving light – but what of it are you walking in?
It’s a time for you to be awake now spiritually. This is the recognition of our harvest time now. Have a look at your crop; what’s in your life. It’s very important for you to see that what’s in your life is what you’re harvesting: from words you’ve said in your last season; or your silence that you have had. Good stuff that you’ve sown, but also stuff you allowed to grow in your heart when you were spiritually asleep (when you got into your head, emotions, fear, circumstances and you didn’t recognize it and uproot them and put the right seed out there).
Matthew 13:24-30 (KJV)
Ps Sharon, “God said to me, “Don’t you ever talk like that again”. Then I went to the Word and spoke it, sowing seed into my heart (like patience, kindness, gentleness). He showed me things and I changed so quickly. Those things left me so quickly. I knew the truth and it set me free.
I know I still have tares in me, but I know what season I’m in now. It’s the time of harvest.
In my personal time with Him, I Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles and burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn (Matthew 13:30).”
The Holy Fire of God comes only in your intimacy with Him, when you come to Him – purging in His presence. Because you’re abiding with the Holy Spirit in the Words and messages of God, you know He’ll show you a tare (what is growing in your heart) and He’ll shine His light that shrivels and withers it up. But then that place is open and empty, it’s clean. Now, you have to immediately put the incorruptible seed of the Word in there, because after a while the enemy takes seven others stronger than him to make sure this time he’s just got that place in you. You’ll see where the enemy had entrance into you and you’ve given him place (don’t take anything that the enemy does in your life personal; he’s only after the Word in your heart).
Matthew 12:33-37 (KJV) – A tree is known by his fruit.
This is the day of judgement, right now you’re giving account of it.
Judgement begins in the house of the Lord; self-judgement, self-correcting.
The Day in Greek: a specified time period for specific things. You should be giving an account right now; continually wanting to give an account.
Idle means counterproductive, silly emotive words; just because you feel like saying it.
The tree is an image of the life of a human being; their words, their actions determine their value and thus his or her future.
Matthew 13:1-23 (KJV); Matthew 3:10-12 (KJV) – your special promise.
Every tree that is in you, that the Father hasn’t planted, He can pull it up by the roots. Every tare that you have sown you can, with the help of the Holy Spirit, have it bind up, bundled up and burned with the fire of God.
John 15:1-2 (KJV)
We’re in a time of purging, self-judging, self-correction in the personal presence, privately, powerfully with God, just you and Him and in the light of His Word and His messages.
A time period of harvest, the time period of judgement (occurring at the same time).
The wheat at harvest and the tares at harvest (both harvests of words).
Perverse words – tares. Good words – wheat. No words – no harvest.
The tares growing in you while you were asleep spiritually, are first.
As you abide in the messages, His light shines on everything in your life and you let His fire burn and you fill cleaned out areas with His Words continuously. No one can sow for you. He can and He does give seed to the sower, but you are the only one who can sow your words into your clean heart. If only you knew that every word that you speak that comes out of your mouth, that is the Word of God, is creating light paths for you.
God wants you, He’s after to you, He’s not going let you go until you come to Him personally and powerfully with Him – you and Him.
Say, “I receive all Your holy fire, Lord. Burn up everything in me with Your Word. Show me every tare in my heart, Lord. With the help of the Holy Spirit I bundle them up together. Your Word that is like fire in my mouth burns them up. ”
