We have entered a year, start of a decade of great action
Psalms 96:8,9 - Give unto the LORD the glory (due unto) his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts. O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.
Since last 2 days I was asking the Lord, what is set forth for us this year and what I was feeling in spirit was confirmed to me by today's message and it is inline with the timeline of the Word of God.
The word translated as 'name' is the Hebrew word 'Shem'. This word has 6 meanings to it; other than 'name' it has 2 others which I like to touch today, one is 'fame' and the other 'reputation'.
The message we received today tells us to give God the glory and fame due to Him, the holiness and fear comes when we keep His reputation.
This year and this decade that we have entered will see great action. Will it be good or bad depends on us. Are we going to give God the fame due to Him and are we upkeep His reputation - His Name. If we do not do it, the Lord will not sit back and let His Name perish, He will get the job done His other way.
If we want to have peace and goodness among us, let us step out this year and give the Name of God Its due fame by proclaiming the Name of Jesus Christ. This should not be just by words, but also in our actions, our doings, our separating ourselves from the ways of the world, standing out among the crowd, shining the Light unto this world.
If you are truly a soldier in heart, you will not like to be behind the lines but before the lines, in the front where the action is. Similarly if you are truly a soldier of God, this time is the best time to be in, the time of great action.
Yesterday at the mid night service there were many, one after another who started prophesying of the Lord moving mountains and about the favor of God on His people this year.
The favor of God and the glory of God are going to be upon us when we stand in His Name keeping His reputation and make it known to the world. So it is all in our hands, on the decision we that to have a glorious year or a disastrous year. Either way this year and decade is surely going to be one we will never forget.
