“Sanctuary” #2

I have not written in 17 days. I have held my words as the perfect storm continues because really…why not? Pretty much everything happening has already been spoke of here, until now. And now…finally…the battle that needed fought has begun. We are finally at the battle we needed all along. And who shall prevail? A church needing thrown into the sea? Or have we changed? have we truly repented and a change has come? Have we regained an anointing in which God hears our prayers? Will we see what God will do to the Egyptians? And so…I feel led again to write about “Sanctuary” in this chaos. Because very violent times are coming. But those who are Skypeople will know Sanctuary.

Today I want to add a recommendation to your Sanctuary. I recommend if at all possible… you add “NATURE”, God’s natural creation. As I sat here this morning looking out through these French Doors that have a very small view of a piece of nature surrounded by city, I felt great peace. But then I would look away and a radio I had playing stirred up restlessness and anxiety. I could literally feel the affect on my spirit and emotions.

I then turned the radio way down low, so I could still here it, but I could also tune it out. It was a news talk show giving current events and etc. Every time I looked out at our small bird sanctuary I felt peace flow in my soul. Every time I listened to the words of the commentator I felt stress. What is it about NATURE / God’s creation, that has that effect?

There is something about the silence of nature. It’s not really silent, you know. We speak of the stillness, and it is so…but at the same time were hearing the wind flowing, perhaps a creek rippling, or a bird chirping, and yet we feel peace and silence. How does it do that?

I have heard NATURE called the “Silent Witness”. It speaks words we do not hear and yet we hear, even when we don’t think we are hearing. Consider these scriptures: “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above declares his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.” (Psalms 19:1-4 ESV)

Notice how those verses use words like: “declare”, “speech”, “words”, “heard”, and “voice”. Yes, nature is not silent, and because she is not “man-made, but God-made, it declares the words of God. Only those living in denial block those words out to their own destruction. But most of us will benefit greatly by bringing some of God’s NATURE into our Sanctuary.

As far as this election goes, the words and prayers needed are: LIGHT BE! EXPOSURE BE! Let there be no shadows for them to hide! Let all be revealed! And if the Church is too unanointed to produce such results? If solid proof is not brought forth? If God is not yet willing to expose the Egyptians but more concerned about exposing Jonah? Then so shall it be. Here comes the raging sea, until Jonah can pray a fervent effectual prayer.

But the fight is finally on. The battle that needed to be. Whether it takes 2 weeks or 2 years, Israel is finally coming out from behind the hills to face Goliath. But David only won because God “ANOINTED” him so. Let us pray we have that same ANOINTING, and let us seek it until we do! I pray we have learned at least that much.

Therefore…find your Sanctuary…create a proper environment to hear the Lord…and whatever he tells you to do, DO IT! Be Skypeople. Serve the Skykingdom, not this underworld, and we will see what God will do with the Egyptians! Amen.
