From December’s Word:
Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. While I have given you authority to walk in and govern, the lawless will continue to illegitimately take the authority upon themselves to control and manipulate. You will see the darkness of witchcraft come out of hiding and be broadcast through the airwaves, the television and radio and over the internet. I say “increase” because it is already happening but it will soon threaten your ability to be free with what you speak. You’ve seen a little of it, but it will be everywhere and in your face. Pay attention to My Spirit and I will give you what to say in appointed times.”
Psalm 1:1 How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so,
But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows THE WAY of the righteous,
But THE WAY of the wicked will perish.
How blessed is the man who does not seek advice or direction from those who hate righteousness, the rule of law, the people of God
Nor stand in the pathway, the walkway, watching them on their journey
Nor participate in the mocking along with the rest of the scoffers
But his delight is in the law of the Lord, the Wisdom that comes from it
And in His law he meditates, thinks on, ponders, considers, mulls over day and night
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season- immovable, solid, unshakeable; able to not only be provided for with sustenance to live long but be refreshment to many, be shelter to others, and sustenance for many more.
Its leaf does not wither, though it be shaken, it returns
And in whatever he does he prospers, provision is multiplied
The wicked, the lawless, those who hate the rule of law and righteousness, lovers of self and not fellow human beings and certainly not the Lord (though it appears so until they are angered), are not so – they are not stable but are easily provoked, easily rattled, easily shaken to the core and then scream out in protest when the storms come
They are like the dandelion spores those little white puff balls easily blown and driven by a child’s breath
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment; oh they will be there, they just won’t be able to stand
Nor sinner’s in the assembly of the righteous; the ones they have mocked and murdered and hated by destroying their livelihoods – nope they won’t assemble with them because they have already received their reward – the praise of the family of the wicked
For the Lord knows the WAY of the righteous – yes He knows the heart and the intent but He also knows the WAY. The WAY they continually live their lives when nobody else is looking on
He also knows the WAY of the wicked; the lawless. This way will perish.
It is so easy for me to get on social media and get trigger finger. It is SO easy for me to see a comment that is completely vile and want to tap tap tap away and let that one have it – but for me, that would be standing in the pathway of sinners and sitting in the same seat as the scoffers. What good is it? Will anyone hear? Will things change? If I thought so, I wouldn’t be on social media, I would be preaching somewhere in some capacity. It’s easy to use social media as my platform if I don’t’ really have one.
Yet in the last few days I’m seeing that very thing happen. Hollywood has-beens and wanna-be’s, those who no longer have a platform and those who want one, are tearing people down in the most vile, horrific way. The rescuer in me wants to come to the aid of the targeted victim, the mother in me wants to protect, the grizzly in me wants to take the vile perpetrators to task, but the righteous woman of God in me, who I truly am, knows that the Lord is more than able.
So if I only have an audience of One, I am content. My way is stable. And so is the way of many others, even those who have a larger platform and are in the position to make difficult decisions regarding others.
It’s about knowing your authority and staying within it. “Pay attention to My Spirit and I will give you what to say in appointed times.” Learn what your authority is and pray with boldness that the Way of the Lord is established and that the WAY of the wicked will be stopped. You have that authority to do so.
