Some of you have been beaten down and bruised by an illegitimate system. Some of you have been spit out left for dead by those who you were once close to.
Some of you have been squeezed by rules that seek to destroy. Some of you have been broken by laws that offer no hope.
Some of you have been chosen to be healed. Some of you have been called to be free.
It’s time to receive this hate and this defeat and this call. Have you been trying to yourself? Have you been trying your hardest to be who you think you are supposed to be on this journey, in this battle, in this life?
‘But now, do consider from this day onward: before one stone was placed on another in the temple of the Lord, from that time when one came to a grain heap of twenty measures, there would be only ten; and when one came to the wine vat to draw fifty measures, there would be only twenty. I smote you and every work of your hands with blasting wind, mildew and hail; yet you did not come back to Me,’ declares the Lord. ‘Do consider from this day onward, … consider: Is the seed still in the barn? Even including the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree, it has not borne fruit. Yet from this day on I will bless you.’ (Haggai 2:15-19 NASB)
Praise the Lord for the seed still left in the barn! So I ask of you:
If we do not love through the hate, who will?
If we do not allow Christ to reveal new life through us, who will?
If we do not step up and receive His signet ring, who will?
‘I am going to shake the heavens and the earth. I will overthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the power of the kingdoms of the nations; and I will overthrow the chariots and their riders, and the horses and their riders will go down, everyone by the sword of another. On that day,’ declares the Lord of hosts, ‘I will take you, My servant,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will make you like a signet ring, for I have chosen you,’ declares the Lord of hosts. (Haggai 2:18-23 NASB)
What’s Your Ring Size?
May the heavens and the earth shake. May the principalities of the powers of this world see the true expression of Christ in the unseen realms, in the heavens, and in the seen realms, the earth.
May we receive His signet ring as ambassadors for His Cause, for His Kingdom.
May we realize, our King is the King of kings. He is the Lord of lords. And most importantly, He is the Lord of hosts.
When it’s dark and you feel you can’t go on, here comes the dawn. Our King, the Lord of hosts, rises with His Kingdom and His fleet to accomplish His Causes.
We are victorious through Him.
It’s time, Army of God. The flag is rising.
Wear His signet ring with His authority.
It’s time, Army of God. The banner is unfurling.
The heavens are shaking. The earth is shaking.
The drums are beating, Army of God.
