When the Wilderness of Glory Becomes Your Tomb









Today’s selected reading is found in the prophetic book of Zechariah, and more specifically, is found in the first chapter of the book. As this prophetic book opens, it does with a description of the days and time in which the prophet was raised up by the Lord among the returned captives and exiles of Judah. “In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the Lord unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet” (Zechariah 1:1). What is unique about the timing of Zechariah emerging on to the scene declaring the prophetic word of the Lord is that he emerged simultaneously with the prophet Haggai. When the prophetic book of Haggai opens up, it does so with a description of when Haggai began prophesying the word of the Lord—“In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest” (Haggai 1:1). When you come to the second chapter of the prophetic book of Haggai, you will of a second occurrence when the word of the Lord came unto the prophet—“In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the Lord by the prophet Haggai” (Haggai 2:1). In the tenth verse of this same chapter we find a third occurrence within the life of Haggai when the word of the Lord would come unto him—“In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet” (Haggai 2:10). This is actually quite interesting, for within the writings of these two Old Testament prophets we discover the reality that the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia was a very active year as it touched and concerned the prophetic word of the Lord. The word of the Lord was manifested for the first time during second year of the reign of Darius in the sixth month. The word of the Lord would then follow month after month for the next three months, as the prophetic word of the Lord came unto Haggai again in the seventh month, and then as the word of the Lord came unto Zechariah in the eighth month, and again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the ninth month. Thus within the first and second chapters of the prophetic book of Haggai, as well as within the first chapter of the prophetic book of Zechariah, we read of a four month period when the word of the Lord came month after month. In fact, one might even say there was absolutely no escaping the prophetic word of the Lord, as the Lord not only raised up a single prophetic voice during those days, but raised up a second prophetic voice.

 As you continue reading the prophetic book of Zechariah, you will discover that while the word of the Lord first came to Zechariah during the eighth month of the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia, that would not be the only time it would do so. In the seventh verse of the first chapter we read that “upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Sebat, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the Lord unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet” (Zechariah 1:7). It isn’t until we come to the seventh chapter of the prophetic book of Zechariah that we discover a completely different time the word of the Lord came unto the prophet. As the seventh chapter opens, it does so with Zechariah describing how the word of the Lord came unto him “in the fourth year of king Darius,” and it did so “in the fourth day of the ninth month, even in Chisleu” (Zechariah 7:1). Between the first and second chapters of the prophetic book of Haggai, and the first chapter of the prophetic book of Zechariah we learn and discover how the word of the Lord came five different and distinct times within the same year at and from the mouths of two different prophets. What began as the prophetic word of the Lord coming unto Haggai in the sixth month would then continue for the next three months, as the word of the Lord would again come unto Haggai in the seventh month, the word of the Lord would come unto Zechariah the first time in the eighth month, and the word of the Lord would come once more unto Haggai in the ninth month of the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia. That particular year would be capped off with one final manifestation of the word of the Lord, as the word of the Lord would come unto Zechariah again in the eleventh month. ONE YEAR, TWO PROPHETS, FIVE PROPHETIC DECLARATIONS! I can’t help but consider the tremendous significance of that particular year—especially considering two distinct declarations found within Scripture concerning the word of the Lord. When you begin reading in the third chapter of the Old Testament book of First Samuel, you will read these words concerning the days of Eli the priest, and his two sons—“And the child Samuel ministered unto the Lord before Eli. And the word of the Lord was precious in those days; there was no open vision. And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he would not see; and ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the Lord, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep” (1 Samuel 3:1-3). The second declaration is found in the eighth chapter of the Old Testament prophetic book of Amos, and concerns a time that would come upon the earth—one that would undoubtedly be difficult to bear. Consider what the prophet Amos recorded beginning with the eleventh verse—“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord: and they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the norther even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it” (Amos 8:11-12).

 The days of Eli the priest in Shiloh, as well as this period which Amos prophesied of describe a period of time when the word of the Lord would be rare—perhaps even a commodity within and upon the earth. One of the questions I can’t help but ask when considering the words of Samuel, as well as the words of Amos, is centered upon the presence and reality of the word of the Lord. The book of Samuel described a time when “the word of the Lord was rare,” as well as when there was no open vision from heaven. The prophet Amos spoke of a time when there would be a famine of hearing the words of the Lord. There was a distinct period of time within human history when there was an extended length of time when there was no open vision, nor was there any manifestation of the word of the Lord. When the Hebrew prophet Malachi uttered his final word according to the word of the Lord, the earth would be thrust into four-hundred years of absolute and complete silence. Pause for a moment and consider that reality and concept—that the earth could go four-hundred years without any open vision from heaven, nor any word from the Lord of hosts. Scripture speaks of famine over and over again, and within the Old Testament book of Genesis alone we read of three distinct famines which struck the earth. There was a famine which struck the earth during the days of Abraham, a second famine which struck the earth during the days of Isaac Abraham’s son, and a third famine that struck the earth during the days of Joseph son of Israel. It’s actually quite interesting when reading the Old Testament book of Genesis that while it is true it is a book of beginnings, it is also a book that carries with it apocalyptic undertones, as well as presents us with three famines which struck the earth. It’s interesting that there would be three distinct famines that would strike the earth within four generations, and yet those three famines would touch each generation. The famine that struck the earth during the days of Abraham would not only affect him, but would also affect his wife Sarah, and all those in his household. There was a second famine that would strike the earth during the days of Abraham’s son Isaac, and would affect he and his household. The difference between the two famines, however, was that while Abraham went down to Egypt during the famine within his generation, Isaac was prohibited by the Lord from going down into Egypt. There would be a third famine that would strike the earth two generations later, yet it was that third famine that would affect the third and fourth generation.

Actually, if you consider it—the famine which struck during the days Joseph served as second in command in all of Egypt not only affected the third generation in Jacob, but the fourth generation in Joseph and his brothers, and the fifth generation in the sons and daughters of Joseph and his brethren. ONE FAMINE, THREE GENERATIONS! When the famine struck during the days of Abraham, the Lord watched over and provided for he and his household within the land of Egypt. When the famine struck during the days of Isaac, the Lord provided for Isaac and his household while in the land of Canaan. As the third and final famine struck during the days of Joseph and his brethren, the Lord not only provided for Joseph and his sons within the land of Egypt, but the Lord would also provide for Joseph’s brothers, their families and households, as well as Jacob, whose name had been changed to Israel. The Old Testament book of Genesis is a book about generations, and five generations spoken of and mentioned within that book would experience a famine within and upon the earth. Concerning this concept of famines which struck and came upon the earth, it’s actually worth noting that one generation experienced and walked through two of the three famines. In the twenty-fifth chapter of the Old Testament book of Genesis we read of the birth of Jacob and Esau—the twin boys who were born to Isaac and Rebekah—while in the twenty-sixth chapter we read of the famine that would come upon the land. This is actually quite interesting for while Esau isn’t spoken of when we begin reading of Joseph, one can’t help but wonder if Esau and Edom weren’t directly affected and impacted by the famine that struck the earth during the days of Joseph. The reason I mention this, is because Jacob would essentially experience two famines within the earth—the first when he and his brother Esau were undoubtedly young boys, and the second when Jacob was advanced in years and had twelve sons and one daughter. When we read of the famine that arose upon the earth during the days of Joseph, Jacob was still alive upon the earth, thus revealing that this would be the second famine he would experience. The famine that struck the earth during the days of Abraham would not touch Isaac, for Isaac would not yet be born unto Abraham and Sarah. The famine that would arise during the days of Isaac, however, would not only touch Isaac and Rebekah, but it would also touch the lives of their two sons, as well as all they of their household. The famine that struck the earth during the days of Joseph would affect three generations, as it would affect Israel (the first generation), Joseph and his brothers (the second generation), and the sons and daughters born to Joseph and his brothers (the third generation). The second famine affected two generations in Isaac and Rebekah (the first generation), and Jacob and Esau (the second generation). ONE FAMINE, ONE GENERATION! ONE FAMINE, TWO GENERATIONS! ONE FAMINE, THREE GENERATIONS! How incredibly interesting it is that within a book of generations we would find five generations—five generations of the chosen people at that—that would be directly impacted by three famines that would strike the earth.

Now, you might be wondering why I would take time to describe the famines which struck the earth these three times within the Old Testament book of Genesis, and how those famines directly impacted and affected the first five generations of the chosen people of Israel. Beginning with Abraham and continuing through to the sons and daughters born to Joseph and his brethren, we find each of those generations being directly impacted by a famine which struck the land and came upon the earth. The prophet Amos spoke of days which would come upon the earth—days when there would be a famine of and a famine for the words of the Lord. The prophet Amos described a period of time within history when the Lord would send a famine upon the earth that would essentially starve men and women of the words of the Lord. Pause for a moment and consider that reality—the reality of starving for the words of the Lord. Consider for a moment the reality that it is possible to find oneself starving for the words of the Lord within the earth, as there appears to be no open vision from heaven within one’s life, or even any experience and encounter with the words of the Lord. I choose to mention this because I can’t help but wonder how despite all the Christian books and literature that is present within this generation, and despite all the Christian broadcasting we have on cable television, radio, and even the internet with live streaming and podcasts, if there is not a famine for the words of the Lord. I can’t help but wonder how despite the vast and many churches, assemblies, congregations and houses of worship that are scattered throughout this nation, there are actually men and women who are starving for the words of the Lord. I am utterly and completely convinced that one can enter into the house of the Lord and perhaps even listen to a sermon, a teaching, a talk, a message, or whatever men and women choose to call their oration, and yet leave the house of the Lord having not partaken of the bread of life, which is the word of God. I am convinced that it is possible to enter the house of the Lord and yet leave being completely starved for the words of the Lord. I must emphatically state and declare that just because you enter into a house of worship and sit and listen to a message or sermon, that doesn’t mean you have heard the word of the Lord, or have even partaken of the words of the Lord. I am convinced there is a fine line between the word of God and the word of the Lord, and that it possible to preach from the word of God, and yet never preach the word of the Lord. With that being said, I do wholeheartedly believe that heaven and earth shall pass away, yet the words of God can and will never pass away. I do firmly believe that the word which the Lord sends forth within and throughout the earth will not return void until it has accomplished what it was sent forth to do. The apostle Paul writes concerning those who preach, yet do so with false and misguided intentions—“Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: the one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: but the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defense of the gospel. What then? Notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretenses, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice” (Philippians 1:15-18).

When I consider the two chapters that make up the prophetic book of Haggai, as well as the first chapter of the prophetic book of Zechariah, I can’t help but think of how absolutely incredible it was that within a single year—the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia—there were five manifestations of the word of the Lord. The word of the Lord came three times within a space of four months to the prophet Haggai, while the word of the Lord came twice within a space of four months to the prophet Zechariah. The word of the Lord would come to Haggai during the sixth, seventh, and ninth month of the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia, while the word of the Lord came during the eighth and eleventh month of that very same year. I can’t help but be incredibly challenged and intrigued by the fact that within a single year there were five distinct prophetic utterances brought forth by two ancient Hebrew prophets. What’s more, is that within that single year, the prophetic word of the Lord not only touched the political realm, but also the spiritual realm. If you read the first chapter of the prophetic book of Haggai, you will find the word of the Lord came unto the prophet concerning Zerubbabel who was governor over the returned remnant of Judah, and to Joshua who was the high priest during that time. Thus, when the word of the Lord came unto the prophet Haggai—though it would affect and impact the remnant people of Judah who returned from captivity and exile—it would be specifically directed to those who were given in leadership over that returned remnant. What’s more, is that when you come to the third and fourth chapters of the prophetic book of Zechariah, you will find these two individuals mentioned once more, as the Lord showed Zechariah a vision of Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord with Satan standing at his right side to accuse him, as well as Zerubbabel, and perhaps the great need for encouragement from the Lord. The word of the Lord would come five different times within a six month period of time, and that word would not only touch the political realm, but also the spiritual realm. I happen to find this to be incredibly powerful, for in days when a people not only returned from captivity and exile, but also were faced with the incredible task and responsibility of rebuilding the Temple of the Lord, as well as repairing the gates and rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem, the word of the Lord would directly speak to, and perhaps even challenge the political and spiritual realm. As I’m sitting here right now, I am curious what this same reality would look like within this generation and within these days, as the prophetic word of the Lord would not only touch the political realm, but also the spiritual realm. There are three distinct individuals who are and have been present during my own lifetime who have touched both the political and the spiritual realm. The first individual is and has been Billy Graham, while the second is the son of Billy Graham, Franklin Graham. The third individual is Jonathan Chan who has spoken on Capitol Hill, and at inauguration ceremonies alike. There are at least three individuals whom the Lord has raised up to speak to both the political and spiritual realms, as they have been called to challenge and confront priests, prophets and politicians alike. One of the most profound realities concerning the current President of the United States is that there were multiple times during his campaign when he surrounded himself by religious leaders from around this nation who not only spoke directly into his life, but also laid hands on and prayed for him. WHEN THE SPIRITUAL REALM TOUCHES THE POLITICAL! WHEN THE SUPERNATURAL REALM TOUCHES THE POLITICAL!

I have spent this entire year reading and studying the writings of the ancient Hebrew prophets, and upon studying the words they spoke within their generation, I can’t help but be struck by the tremendous reality that the prophetic not only touched, but also directly impacted the political. WHEN THE PROPHETIC TOUCHES THE POLITICAL! WHEN THE PROPHETIC IMPACTS THE POLITICAL! Most of the writings of the ancient Hebrew prophets describe the days in which those individual prophets proclaimed the word of the Lord, and how the word of the Lord came during the days and reigns of specific kings who sat upon the throne in Jerusalem. The prophetic word would directly touch and impact each and every inhabitant of the land, but it would also directly challenge and touch the political realm. In fact, if you read the prophetic writings of Jeremiah, you will discover that the words which Jeremiah spoke not only touched both priest and prophet alike, but his words would also touch the throne and the government surrounding and underneath the throne. Jeremiah not only confronted prophets and priests alike, but Jeremiah also confronted kings, princes and rulers alike. Oh, I can’t help but wonder what it would look like within our generation if the prophetic began touching, impacting, affecting, and perhaps even invading the political realm. What would happen if the prophetic began to invade the political realm as the Lord began confronting the rulers and leaders of this nation? What would happen if the prophetic word of the Lord began touching those whom David spoke of in the second chapter of the book of the Psalms—“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together?” What would happen if the prophetic word of the Lord began touching and directly confronting the kings of the earth who have set themselves, and the rulers who take counsel together? I can’t help but think about and consider what it would look like if the prophetic word and ministry of the Lord began to invade both the White House and the church house. What would happen if the word of the Lord directly touched and impacted Capitol Hill, and invaded sessions of Congress? I am convinced that within these Last Days, there needs to be an incredible resurgence of the prophetic ministry and word of the Lord—a manifestation that directly challenges prophets and priests alike, princes and kings alike. What would happen if the prophetic word of the Lord began to directly touch Prime Ministers, Presidents, Kings, Chancellor’s and the like? There are and there have been many who demand change from within the realm of the government, yet I am convinced that until and unless the prophetic word of the Lord directly influences and impacts the political realm, the change we desire to see cannot and will not take place. I believe a few of the places the word of the Lord has a difficult time being received and manifested are the throne room and the board room, the White House and the church house. We are living in days when the prophetic word and ministry of the Lord needs to find its way into both the throne room, as well as the board room. We are living in days when the word of the Lord needs to invade the White House, as well as the church house. How can we expect the word of the Lord to invade the White House if it can’t even find its way into the church house?

When the prophetic book of Zechariah opens, it opens with an indictment concerning and regarding previous generations, as the Lord speaks of the days and generations of the fathers of the remnant of Judah which had returned from captivity and exile, and were now dwelling within the land of inheritance and promise once more. “The Lord hath been sore displeased with your fathers. Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. Be ye not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets have cried, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Turn ye now from your evil ways, and from your evil doings: but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith the Lord. Your fathers, where are thy? And the prophets, do they live for ever? But my words and my statues, which I commanded my servants the prophets, did they not take hold of your fathers? And they returned and said, Like as the Lord of hosts thought to do unto us, according to our ways, and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with us” (Zechariah 1:2-6). Through the prophet Zechariah the Lord speaks of the generations of fathers, and uses the experience of that generation to instruct the generation which was before Him upon the earth. I can’t help but be reminded of an entire generation of fathers that died and perished in the wilderness because they refused to believe and obey the word of the Lord spoken through His servant Moses, and even through Joshua and Caleb. Consider the words which the author of the epistle to the Hebrews wrote concerning that generation—Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear His voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: when your fathers tempted me, proved me, and say my works forty years. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do always err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter in my rest. Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end; While it is said, To day if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, asa in the provocation. For some, when they had heard, did provoke: Howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses. But with whom was He grieved forty years? Was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness? And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief” (Hebrews 3:7-18).

One thing that is so intriguing, and even alarming within Scripture is that not only can fathers be guilty, but sons also can be found guilty. There was a generation that perished in the wilderness because of their unbelief, and there was a generation in the land of Canaan that was given into the hands of their enemies because of their stubbornness and disobedience. IN the fourteenth chapter of the Old Testament book of Numbers we read of the generation of fathers—perhaps even of grandfathers as well—that perished in the wilderness because of unbelief and disobedience before the Lord. “And the Lord said, I have pardoned according to thy word: but as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord. Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not heartened to my voice; surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it: but my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it…To morrow turn you, and get you into the wilderness by the way of the Red Sea. And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the Lord, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: Your carcasses shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me, Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun. But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised. But as for you, Your carcasses, they shall fall in this wilderness. And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until Your carcasses be wasted in the wilderness. After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise. I the Lord have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die” (Numbers 14: 20-35).

This particular passage recorded in the Old Testament book of Numbers describes an entire generation of fathers and grandfathers who were not only forced to wander in the wilderness for forty years, but would also perish in the wilderness. This generation of fathers and grandfathers continually murmured against the Lord of hosts, and provoked Him at least “these ten times,” and at last they murmured against Him according to the negative word of the ten spies. This would not only cause them to spend forty years wandering in the wilderness, but would also cause them to die in the same wilderness they entered. WHEN THE WILDERNESS BECOMES YOUR TOMB! The waters of the Red Sea became a tomb for their enemies, yet the wilderness would become the tomb for an entire generation who continually murmured against, and provoked the Lord of hosts to anger and jealousy. It is possible that the same wilderness the Lord brought you into to reveal Himself unto you can in fact become a tomb in which your body will fall and perish. Please don’t lose sight of or miss the significance and importance of this, for the same wilderness where the children of Israel saw and experienced the glory of the Lord at least twice—once atop the mountain of God, and a second time within and upon the Tabernacle—would be the very same wilderness that would become their tomb. I can’t help but be reminded of the words which the prophet Isaiah spoke, which are recorded for us in the fifty-third chapter of the book bearing his name—“Who hath believed our report?” An entire generation of fathers and grandfathers chose to believe the evil report of ten spies, and as a result of their unbelief and murmuring, the same wilderness they received the Law and the Tabernacle and experienced the glory of the Lord would be the very same wilderness that would be their tomb. The question I am finding myself asking right now is not only whose report am I listening to, but what voices am I allowing myself to listen to. I recently heard and listened to a message preached by Carter Conlon—a message about how many Christians weep on Sunday night because they are sitting in houses where the voice before them does not provoke them to faith, provoke them to trust, provoke them to confidence, provoke them to obedience before the Lord. Oh, in this generation of constant and continual voices, we must ask ourselves which voices we are allowing ourselves to listen to. We cannot, we dare not, we must not listen to just any voice that is present within this generation—regardless of how popular that voice is, or how many books that voice has written, or even what ranking that voice has on the iTunes podcast charts.

The prophet Zechariah spoke of the sore displeasure the Lord had with the fathers of the remnant of those who returned from captivity and exile because they were instructed to turn themselves unto the Lord, yet refused to do so. The Lord of hosts spoke of the former prophets whom the Lord raised up to cry among them in their midst calling for and urging repentance and obedience. Essentially, the prophet Zechariah was speaking to a generation of sons, for the Lord of hosts indicted the generation of fathers whom the former prophets had spoken unto. It is true the Lord raised up “former prophets” within this nation—men such as David Wilkerson, Leonard Ravenhill, A.W. Tower, Jonathan Edwards, Charles Wesley, and others. We aren’t living in the days of former prophets, nor are we living in days of fathers; but we are instead living in days when the word of the Lord is directly challenging us to obedience and faithfulness before Him within this generation. There was a generation that perished in the wilderness because of their unbelief and murmuring before and against the Lord. There was a generation that became subject to their enemies and adversaries because of their rebellion, disobedience, whoredom, harlotries, fornications and the like .There was a generation that was carried away captive from the land of the northern kingdom of Israel, and brought into the land of the Assyrians who had conquered and exercised dominion over them. There was a generation that was carried away captive from the land of the southern kingdom of Judah, and brought into the land of the Chaldeans. THE GENERATION THAT PERISHED IN THE WILDERNESS! THE GENERATION THAT WAS CARRIED AWAY CAPTIVE! THE GENERATION THAT WAS GIVEN INTO THE HANDS OF THEIR ENEMIES AND ADVERSARIES! Oh that we would read the prophetic words of Zechariah in this passage, and that we would turn, and perhaps even return to the Lord of hosts with all our hearts, with all our souls, with all our minds, with all our strengths. We aren’t living in the days of former prophets and fathers, but are living in the days of “To day, if you will hear His voice, and do not harden your hearts.” Will you hear His voice, and will you allow your heart to be soft and pliable before the Lord of hosts in these Last Days?
