This month’s prophetic promise was released from the Rehoboth Well in MPZ. The shofar was blown 7 times, signifying total victory for the church of God. This is a short but powerful Word that will extend, God-willing until our Lord comes again. Listen to Pastor Paul D Dawson as he expounds this powerful truth of God choosing to dwell among us.
GOD DWELLS AMONG US
The Word of God for the month of October 2021 – I shall dwell in the land that ye shall inhabit.
Today, we are at Rehoboth well and it is a place of power. God is an amazing, mighty God who is always doing miracles. So that we His sons and daughters can live the life He has planned for us. Today we are enjoying a beautiful atmosphere here and God has shut the heavens for us. This is a great beginning for us. We also just heard the blowing of the shofar 7 time symbolizing absolute and total victory. You are all going to experience this power and victory. It is right now entering your houses and your bodies.
The promise for the month of October 2021 is found in the book of Numbers 35:34 which says, “Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel.”
God has given a very clear promise. It is right from today for many days to come, I believe it will manifest for many years to come. God is asking us, “Do you know where I dwell?” And His reply is, “I dwell in the land that you shall inhabit.” Our God loves to be where His people are. His people are the sanctified people, chosen, the elect and the called. Why does He choose to dwell there? The answer is found in Deuteronomy 7:8 which reads, “But because the LORD loved you, and because He would keep the oath which He had sworn unto your fathers.” Notice this carefully, why does He love to dwell among His people?
When pressures come against us or the tide is against us, many forget that God loves us. They are unclear about God’s love. We should always remember that God loves us more than we can think or imagine. Many say that God loves me but when they analyse that statement, they actually don’t believe it.
What is the meaning of love? Love is giving. God so loved that He gave. Why did He give? Because God loves His people. Get this into your spirit, from this October month, you are going to see amazing things that you have never seen before. If you believe and take this as a prophetical Word then God is going to do so many things that you will be astounded. It will happen. God in action is what you will see. Those things that you have never seen before. From the month of October 2021 you will see it all, if you can believe it.
In Ezekiel 37:27 we read, “My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Look at the New Living Translation which says, “I will make My home among them.” God is saying I will make. God who inhabits eternity is saying that He will make and that is exactly why the promise today is an exciting promise. He will dwell in the land you inhabit.
God has given us MPZ church, beautiful grounds and beautiful buildings, a place where God’s people are going to dwell. You are going to be shocked but ask God for eyes to see for out of revelation proceeds faith. God is saying, “I am going to dwell in this land. I am going to show My might in this land because My people are inhabiting this place.” Inhabiting means dwelling, coming and going. A place where people come and go is an inhabited place. Uninhabited means that no one is coming and going. An uninhabited place means a place for snakes and scorpions to reside.
“Where My people inhabit, there I shall make my dwelling place” says the Lord. What will happen because of that? Isaiah 32:18 talks about this, “And My people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;
Look at what God is saying very carefully.
1. Where do My people dwell? In peaceful habitations. Trouble will not come near you but it will be far off from you. Sickness will be far off, confusion will be far from you and the works of the devil will be far from you.
2. Sure dwellings refer to certain dwelling places and that is what we shall have.
3. We shall have quiet, resting places. He will give quietness, rest and peace. You who don’t have quietness in your life, God is telling you that He will give you rest.
Never forget Exodus 11:7 which says, “That ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.” There is a difference between the Egyptians and Israelites and today God will make it evident.
Get ready for an amazing move from the hand of God. Don’t forget the promise of the month although I don’t think it is just for this month, I believe it is for ages to come. How amazing are His words – “I dwell in the land which you shall inhabit.”
God wants to do amazing things in this place. What can God do? In 1 Kings 8:39 we read, “Then hear Thou in heaven Thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart Thou knowest; (for Thou, even Thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;)
Solomon’s prayed thus although heaven is His true dwelling but he prayed that He would make the place where you dwell, His dwelling place. Why will God hear from His dwelling place? He will hear to forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart He knowest.
God will hear and do. He gives to every man. When God hears, He gives. God gives to every man but He hears from His dwelling place. Which place is His dwelling place? The place where you dwell. Prayers will be easily answered from His dwelling place.
1 Kings 8:41-43, “Moreover concerning a stranger, that is not of Thy people Israel, but cometh out of a far country for Thy name's sake; (For they shall hear of Thy great name, and of Thy strong hand, and of Thy stretched out arm;) when he shall come and pray toward this house; Hear Thou in heaven Thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all people of the earth may know Thy name, to fear Thee, as do Thy people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have builded, is called by Thy name.”
The stranger who doesn’t belong to God’s people but comes form a far country and prays. Why does he come? “for Thy name's sake” is what the Word teaches us here. Verse 41 talks about a stranger who comes from a far country. He comes because he shall hear of “Thy great name”. That is the reason he comes and God will do according to all that he asks.
God has to hear, for our prayers to be answered. Where is God’s dwelling place? Remember He dwells among His people. He inhabits where His people are. So when you pray, automatically your prayers will be heard and God will do all that you ask. Whatever the stranger asks, God hears and answers prayer is what Solomon asked of God. Let the people know You as do us, Your people was what he said. When the prayer is answered, people will know His name. When your prayer is answered, you will know His name.
From where does He answer? From His dwelling place. Where is His dwelling place? The place where His people inhabit. If you can believe, you can receive. If you don’t believe, I have no words to speak. But if you are going to believe, you will see amazing miracles which hitherto have never happened. That is why we blew the shofar 7 times as a sign that we are going to inherit, we are going to possess, we are going to break every power of the devil and demon powers are going to be paralysed. That is why we blew the shofar 7 times, as the people of God did in the days of old - to paralyse the works of the devil.
God bless you; get excited as God has planned all these things. Unto whom is it given? The land is given to us. People are given to us. God says, “I will come and dwell in the midst of all the people.”
