“Behold, I will do a New Thing”

on
April 15, 2018

There are many things the Lord has taught and revealed to me since my hike that day to Signal Point. It was such a wild experience. The entire day it was as if I was simply a willing participant to what the Spirit was doing.

He showed me the actions I took throughout the day each have prophetic significance. I came to first realize this after I wrote the story and I was thinking back on how my getting lost after taking the W road was a sign of things to come for me later that day.

I also know that names are very significant with God. So, I got to thinking about the name of the mountain and the point at which He had me pray, Signal Point.

 

Signal means: a gesture, action, or sound that is used to convey information or instructions

 

As I began to talk with the Lord about it, He began to show me this story has an important message throughout.  It will take me a few blog posts to explain what He has shown me so far. In addition, I will probably share some things He told me in the weeks prior to this event. But today I would like to get to the main point of the message.

 

Speak to the Rock

 

The Rock represents Jesus. If you read Exodus 17:3-6 and then Numbers 20:6-12 you will see correlations in these stories to what the Lord had me do on the rock at Signal Point.

  • The song speaks of the elders being present just as it does in Exodus 17:3-6
  • In Numbers 20:6-12 Moses and Aaron fall on their faces before God
  • God tells Moses to take his staff but to speak to the rock

 

God told Moses to strike the Rock the first time. This was representative of Jesus being struck for our sins. The second time he was to NOT strike the Rock but to speak to the Rock.

 

1Co 10:4 NASB

and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ.

 

After Jesus died out of his belly flowed blood and then water. This is significant because after the shedding of Jesus blood, now spiritual water can be poured out of the Rock in abundance for everyone.

In Zechariah 4:6 we see it is prophesied That God will build His temple not by might or by power but by His Spirit.

 

Zec 4:6 NASB

Then he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.

 

A New Spiritual Season

 

So often we try to do things by human effort and this is not Gods way. God is announcing a change in the spiritual season.  He is telling us, His people, to align our prayers with His way. We need to get on our face before Him and ask Him to pour out His Spirit upon us and our cities without measure.

God is announcing a new thing coming and it has already started. He is once again declaring these words:

 

Isa 43:19-21 NASB –

19 “Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.

20 “The beasts of the field will glorify Me, The jackals and the ostriches, Because I have given waters in the wilderness And rivers in the desert, To give drink to My chosen people.

21 “The people whom I formed for Myself Will declare My praise.

 

Isa 44:3-8 NASB –

3 ‘For I will pour out water on the thirsty land And streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring And My blessing on your descendants;

4 And they will spring up among the grass Like poplars by streams of water.’

5 “This one will say, ‘I am the LORD’S’; And that one will call on the name of Jacob; And another will write on his hand, ‘Belonging to the LORD,’ And will name Israel’s name with honor.

6 “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I am the first and I am the last, And there is no God besides Me.

7 ‘Who is like Me? Let him proclaim and declare it; Yes, let him recount it to Me in order, From the time that I established the ancient nation. And let them declare to them the things that are coming And the events that are going to take place.

8 ‘Do not tremble and do not be afraid; Have I not long since announced it to you and declared it? And you are My witnesses. Is there any God besides Me, Or is there any other Rock? I know of none.'”

 

For over 2000 years God’s people have been on a journey and it’s time to Go back to the Rock and ask Him to pour out His Spirit. He is going to pour out His Spirit in this new spiritual season in a way that has never been seen or heard before.

The prayer the Holy Spirit led me to pray at the Rock is a Signal to each believer to pray accordingly.  This new mighty work of the Spirit will come about as we pray for Him to do what He promised.

This is the season of the latter rain and we need to begin to ask for the nations as our inheritance. This will only come about by the work of His Spirit and not by human effort or ingenuity.  We are in a spiritual struggle and intellectual reasoning does not change hearts. People need to encounter the Great I AM, the One who’s voice shakes the earth. It is through encounters with God’s glory that we are transformed. People once again need to see His power and His signs and wonders.

That is what is coming in this new season of the out pouring of the Spirit of God.

It starts with those who know how to abide with Him in the secret place. This, simply put, is friendship with Him. Prayer is to be two-way communication with God. When we put friendship with God over everything else in our lives we begin to hear His voice loud and clear. God speaks these days just as He always has.

God will begin His move through those who know Him and through those who daily drink the words of the Spirit. We must continually ask Him to fill us and pour out His Spirit upon us without limit.

All God’s promises are for us and what He did for those in ages past, He will also do for us. We will experience all God’s promises!

THE MESSAGE
Chattanooga, TN USA

After my hiking trip last week, the Lord began to show me He had a bigger purpose in it than I realized at the time. There is an important message in the story that He is sending to all of us, His people. So I have started this blog to share that message and other experiences He wants me to share. Over the next few days, I will begin to reveal what He is showing me about it.
