You Have Come Too Far Not to Cross Over

“But My righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him,” Hebrews 10:38

 

We are currently hearing an exhortation by Holy Spirit in these strategic times we are living in. HE is sounding an alarm and saying, “You have come too far, not to cross on over.” HE is indeed doing a sifting in these last days, and HE, being such THE DIVINE CHIROPRACTOR is adjusting and aligning BODY of CHRIST to be positioned in proper alignment with HIS DIVINE PLUMBLINE. There is an old testament word and concept that captures the essence of what happens when we align or realign with God and HIS purposes. The word is abar, and it means “TO CROSS OVER” Joshua 1:9 in The Message Translation reads, “Haven't I commanded you? Strength! Courage! Don’t Be Timid; don’t get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take.” Yet, it is so challenging if we are not all engaged with HIM, and desire for HIM to get HIS full inheritance from our lives, to waver in the days we are living in. The circumstances all around us are obviously risky in the natural… It does not seem like a good idea to do certain things at this time because…. after all the World has seemingly gone topsy-turvy mad! But, when God calls us to do something if we allow the natural to dictate what to do, instead of HIS INSTRUCTIONS, we are in doubt and unbelief. The very things we have trusted HIM for in the past to accomplish in and through us, could be hindered because of the lack of faith for the now. Recently we were engaged in a conversation with Samuel Griffin, (one of Shiloh Graduates.) He said to us, could you please see what The Lord will show you regarding a word I believe HOLY SPIRIT gave me? The Word HE impressed on Sam’s Heart was, “Do not curse your harvest.” Immediately Holy Spirit began to show us the significance. Ecclesiastes says it very well. “Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest. Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things. Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another or maybe both.” (Ecclesiastes 11: 4-6 NLT ) if we look at the natural, it can surely cause us to grow weary in well doing, but HE has told us in HIS WORD, NOT to grow weary in well doing, because we will reap a harvest if we faint not. (Galatians 6:9.) HE has also asked us in Luke 18:8, “When The Son Of Man comes back, will HE find Faith on this Earth?” HE was speaking of our Prayer life, being persistent in Prayer and not giving up. HE had just finished the Parable on The Persistent Widow. We must be a People that continue to earnestly Pray regardless if we have not seen certain things come to fruition as of yet. In these critical times, we are encouraged by Holy Spirit to be even the more adamant to call those things that are not as thou they are. (Romans 4:17) DO NOT CURSE YOUR HARVEST BY QUITTING AFTER ALL THIS TIME!!! YOU HAVE COME TOO FAR NOT TO CROSS ON OVER!! We must be mindful and not to curse our harvest, so we indeed must be alert regarding how we represent THE LORD in our lifestyle’s day in and day out. We encounter others & we must be careful how we walk out our personal testimonies. ARE WE LIVING OUT BEING REDEEMED IN ACTION? People sometimes look for excuses not to follow JESUS, & if we can give them an excuse by our compromise in areas of our life… well, that too could very well be The Harvest being cursed…. Our Dear Friends, so much is at stake when we speak of Harvest. Holding on tightly to resources and finance when in actuality ALL BELONGS TO HIM is easily done in times of uncertainties such as we are living in with this current economic instability… BUT GOD has told us that we are indeed under a spiritual law that HE has put in motion before we were ever created. As Long as the earth remains there will be seed time and harvest time (Genesis 8:22) and whatsoever a man sows is that which he will reap. (Galatians 6:7.) We also think on the beautiful illustration of Elijah and the widow woman regarding her lack, but she gave out of obedience and her oil never ran out… (1Kings17:7-16.) A life of ever-increasing Faith to carry you “ON OVER” will require that sacred meeting place with The Lord not being forsaken. We must be inquiring of HIM and reading and studying HIS Word, to be infused with Faith in this hour. We must be praying earnestly not just for ours, not just for our Nation, but yet THE NATIONS. JESUS DIED FOR ALL NATIONS, TRIBES, AND PEOPLES. We are to be yielded to allow Holy Spirit to reveal anything in our hearts that we do not currently agree with HIM on so as not to be deceived in these last days. There are so many present variables that could harm the harvest. For some the excuses of age could be used as a factor when HE is stretching us & extending our tent pegs with yet another assignment. Some have prayed for many years consistently for lost family members, friends, & neighbors, & currently their lifestyles are depicting far worse than when we started those prayers years ago!!… BUT HE SAYS, “DO NOT CURSE YOUR HARVEST BY NOT CROSSING ON OVER, YOU HAVE COME TOO FAR, SO DO NOT QUIT, DO NOT GROW WEARY. YOU WILL REAP A HARVEST IF YOU FAINT NOT. We must be incredibly careful then how we live, not tainting our testimony. JESUS IS OUR HARVEST. DO NOT CURSE YOUR HARVEST by taking HIS NAME IN VAIN, through futile words, no action, & or shrinking back. The World will know we are HIS when they see authentic, CHRISTLIKENESS, regardless of the cost, regardless of the present circumstances. DO NOT CURSE YOUR HARVEST! YOU HAVE COME TOO FAR, NOT TO CROSS ON OVER!!
