40 Days: Day 28

At 8 AM EST Yom Rishon (Sunday) August 23, 2015 I had a vision. I was standing and talking to hundreds of people. As I spoke I began to share that it is time to bury the hatchet of all the doctrines that divide us. I began to share that there are many gray areas in scripture, but we have taken those gray areas and made doctrines out of them. Needing to have a corner on a particular truth has become our own chiseled idol. I shared how when we do that we create separation between each other. We as the people of Yosef are still walking in the sin of Jeroboam to this very day. We are erecting golden calves and altars to ourselves and we have made these doctrines as mighty ones. After I finished sharing that bold message to these hundreds of people my whole body began to shake and my knees began to buckle. I was weeping profusely and I fell prostrate upon the ground and with a loud cry came forth, “Oh King of Yisrael bring us home!!!” As I lay there yelling out and profusely weeping, the hundreds of people in that place began to do the same. We were all identifying the sin of Jeroboam in our lives. The hundreds in that place were now all prostrate on the floor crying out in unison with weeping and travail, “Oh King of Yisrael bring us home!!” My body was quaking and I was weeping throughout the vision and then at the end was a sense of calm assurance, tranquility, that He heard our cry.

All of us in that room knew heaven touched earth in that place. We all knew it was time to prepare for our journey. He heard us and was taking us home.

 

A Song birthed from the Vision:

 

Oh King of Israel bring us home
Oh King of Israel bring us home
I am tired of all the doctrines
Which are gods I have made
I lay them down before you
That I have engraved

Oh King of Israel bring us home
Oh King of Israel bring us home
See if there be an idolatrous way in me
Lead me to love my brother in unity, in unity

Oh King of Israel bring us home
Oh King of Israel bring us home
I am tired of all the doctrines
Which are gods I have made
I lay them down before you
That I have engraved

Oh King of Israel bring us home
Oh King of Israel bring us home
See if there be an idolatrous way in me
Lead me to love my brother in unity, in unity

– Selah

 

An unrepentant heart will cause us to be religious and legalistic. We will insist on having things explained and understood according to our own interpretations. We must resist this tendency.

“But avoid foolish disputes, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and useless. Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition, knowing that such a person is warped and sinning, being self-condemned.”
(Titus 3:9-11, NKJV)

Discussion – midrash – is healthy and useful. We are learning from each other. Be careful that these discussions do not become contentious.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; renew in me a resolute spirit.”
(Psalm 51:10, CJB)
