A NEW ORDER FOR A NEW DAY!

“And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Now the dwelling of God IS WITH men, and He will live with them. They will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the OLD ORDER of things has passed away.’ He who was seated on the throne said, ‘I AM making everything NEW!’ Then he said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’ He said to me: ‘IT IS DONE. I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the BEGINNING and the END. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life (see also, John 10: 10-13). He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be My son.” Revelation 21: 3-8

Many would say these verses are related to only the “New Jerusalem” and that the blessing God speaks of is scheduled for release at the end of this world order. In fact, it is stated in verse 4, “…the old order is passed away”. I feel in my spirit that there is another possibility that is valid within the context of these verses. I believe they are the words He has spoken and is speaking to every generation past, present, and future. I believe He is addressing our “OLD” status as sinners and is pointing to our NEW status as “born again believers in Jesus Christ” (John 3: 3-7; 1Peter 1: 22-25). He is saying that we can walk in VICTORY NOW; this very moment, with no more (spiritual, emotional) death, or mourning our lot in life, or crying, or pain (in body, soul, or spirit); that we are CONTINUALLY being transformed into His likeness! EVERY DAY… EVERYTHING NEW (Lamentations 3:22, 23)! How awesome is that?

He then said, “IT IS DONE!” He didn’t say, “In the millennium I will do this” or, “It’s for a far distant day in the future.” NO! He said, “IT IS DONE!” So, it is yours and it is mine for RIGHT NOW if we care to accept it through the HOPE Jesus Christ brings to our life. I believe this reasoning is correct because God knew the END from the BEGINNING and He has given ALL of it to us as a part of His NEW covenant blessing through the CROSS, the BLOOD of Jesus, the Resurrection and LIFE of Jesus, and the BIBLE (His ETERNAL Word). I draw your attention to the fact that He did say the promise “was for him who OVERCOMES” (see Revelation 12: 10, 11) and I am sure this is talking about His children walking in victory in spite of the cares and frustrations within their personal world. It is VICTORY indeed if each crisis can be seen as NEW opportunity to give God praise!

This past week I have been blessed by so many words of encouragement and it has been my privilege to pray for many who have various needs in their lives at this moment. My FIRST, and the most IMPORTANT prayer that I pray for all of you is that you have, or are developing, a “PERSONAL and INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP” with Jesus Christ. The world about us is operating under the DISORDERED & CHAOTIC rule of the “god of this earth,” but we are NOT OF THIS WORLD (John 16: 33; John 17:14-19). Hallelujah! You MUST stay “in the presence of Jesus” through the empowerment of Holy Spirit! It is VITAL for your spirit to stay strong and healthy despite what the enemy throws at you every chance he can!

I believe God has given these specific Scripture passages to help INCREASE your VICTORY in day to day warfare. SPEAK (pray) these words into your life:

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. There will be a tabernacle for shade in the daytime from the heat, for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from the storm, and rain. The Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.” (Psalm 91:1; Isaiah 4: 6; Psalm 121: 5, 6)

“When my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble. You have been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in distress, a refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat; for the blast of the terrible ones is a storm against the wall.” (Psalm 61: 2; Psalm 32: 7; Isaiah 25: 4).

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. God alone is wise. Do not be wise in your own eyes.” (Job 28:12; James 1: 5, 6; 1Timothy 1:17; Proverbs 3: 7)

“The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. The Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groaning that cannot be uttered.” (1John 2: 27; John 14: 26; Romans 8: 26)

My question: “Are you living in the NEW day?”
