For the month of June, Pastor Paul Dawson has given a prophetic Word on God’s instructions on combatting Covid19. A timely and must-see message for the healing balm of God to touch our lives. While many things must Don’t think twice! Listen to this life changing message to understand that the Ancient of Days has made provision for even Covid 19.
The promise for the month of June is a special prophetic Word from Isaiah 55:13, “Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off".
Notice how it says it shall be to the Lord for a name. The NIV says, “it shall be to the Lord’s renown” while the NLT says, “These events will bring great honor to the Lord’s name;” This is God’s promise for this month but I wish it will be valid for MPLC as long as we live. If this was a permanent Word in our lives how wonderful would that be! Such events will bring honour to the Lord’s name. I am always amazed at how God gives a prophetic Word and makes us think about it. You might be wondering what is the big significance of this Word. How does it bring great honour to God’s name? If you just read the Bible very flippantly that is how you will understand. You might learn this promise by heart but it is more important that you understand its meaning.
Firstly we must understand what is the thorn and brier? Instead of the thorn and instead of the brier shall come the fir tree. Till this particular event happened there was only thorn and brier instead of the fir tree and the myrtle tree.
In Isaiah 32:13 we read, “Upon the land of My people shall come up thorns and briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city:” Here also thorns and briers are used. This is God’s Word. God says upon all the land and houses of joy of my people will come up thorns and briers. Upon the land and all My people will it sprout forth. Upon all the houses of God’s people there was joy. It was so because it was a joyous city. This is also Word of God. God does not change but please don’t try to change God. Many people who don’t like these kinds of teachings, try to change God. So thorns and briers will be there. Thorns are somethings that keep pricking you, giving you problems, pain, loss and sickness. No one is fond of thorns but it shall be upon all the houses. That is very sad as thorns refer to sorrows, grief, loss and sickness.
Now God says, “instead of the thorn and instead of the brier..” When these things happen it shall bring great honour to God’s name. Your life will change when this happens.
When these events happen, won’t you be happy with what He is replacing these things? Why didn’t God say the apple and the mango tree? He said fir and myrtle trees. Why these trees in particular?
You know why this is so? I wanted to know and suddenly God asked me to check it in the dictionary and here’s what I found. People take myrtle for treating lung infections including bronchitis, whooping cough, tuberculosis, diarrhea, kidney problems, bladder conditions, persistent heartburns, heavy periods, yeast infections, worms, skins for warts, mouth cankers, sores and thrush in the mouth. Lung infection is corona, isn’t it? People take myrtle for lung infections. So what is our God saying? Instead of the brier shall come up the healing tree. And what about the fir tree? People use the shoot and oil of the fir for healing. Fir is taken by mouth for respiratory tract pain and inflammation. Colds, cough, bronchitis, fever, sores and more which are all related to today’s corona, is taken. It is also taken for muscle nerve pain and tuberculosis.
Look at the meaning of instead of thorns and briers that God is God is telling us. He is saying that instead of thorns and briers He will give you supernatural healing. God has already created a place.
God is speaking about powerful healing anointing which will take place through natural means. This is an amazing promise. These events will bring great honour to God’s name. god is saying this is the solution I am providing for all these terrible sicknesses. Both fir and myrtle are relating to the healing of the lungs. This is prophecy for us. He has given us amazing revelations that God has given. We are reading not just on the outside but on the inside of His Word. There are gold nuggets in his Word. A new move of God has begun.
Those who will be like Isaachar will understand. Understanding the times is important and only 200 of them knew what Israel had to do. All their brethren were at their commandment. 1 Chronicles 12:32 says, “And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.” All those who were there just obeyed them. We need to be like the sons of Isaachar. Only Isaachar knows what Israel would have to do
Those who are disobedient will bring great dishonour to God’s name. There is no point of imagining you are obeying God, it will show up in your life if you are. Be blessed. We are entering amazing times. These events will bring great honour to God’s name. These events which will happen in your house. Maybe today it is thorns and briers but it will be replaced by the fir and myrtle. Cooperate with God. Cooperate with the man of God.
The power of God is with us. God is working for the 5 and the 100.
