However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
Good morning friends. Heaven has protocols that are designed to disconnects our adversary the devil from understanding and knowing God’s operations. These protocols are gateways that are closely guarded by Angelic beings, and used as corridors for bringing God’s will on earth.
In Jacob’s famous dream, we are provided with a beautiful imagery of this operation. In his dream he saw a ladder to the heavens, with Angels ascending and descending. For the records, Angels are higher beings that operate in the supernatural realm to bring God’s will and purpose to manifestation on earth. They are set in motion through our prayers and walk of faith. Hence we cannot relent in prayers, especially speaking in tongues.
So with this in mind, we can understand why Amos said;
The Lord will surely do nothing, until He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
These mysteries are hidden and only revealed to trusted individuals. Each one with a unique talent, but all qualified by God through their faithfulness in little things. Their core duty is to pray through, receive instructions, and carry out God’s assignments on earth. Like in any military or intelligence operation, there are casualties. The higher the risk, the more the potential for casualties. All through the ages Heaven is busy headhunting worthy vessels as successors or replacements.
So, Isaiah spoke these words hundreds of years before Jesus was born;
Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him;
He has put Him to grief.
When You make His soul an offering for sin,
He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.
He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.
By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many,
For He shall bear their iniquities.
Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
And He shall divide the spoil with the strong,
Because He poured out His soul unto death,
And He was numbered with the transgressors,
And He bore the sin of many,
And made intercession for the transgressors.
He died a false prophet, because it never materialised in his lifetime. However years later, the word was made manifest in the person of Jesus Christ. In true covert style, He was born out of obscurity, but as soon as they realised who He was, they crucified Him. Little did they know that it was all a setup; His death was part of God’s plan for the ultimate redemption of humanity!
… for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
He is coming back, no one knows the hour of His appearing, but He has left us with vital signs. From the signs dear friends, His return is eminent.
For now I’ll just say, Happy Good Friday!
