The promise for September is that God of Israel will be your rereward. This is an exciting promise to mediate throughout this month and long after and in this excerpt Pastor Paul Dawson reveals that this promise can be made sure only through the anointing. And he emphasizes that it is very essential that God gives us a revelation about the anointing. God will certainly protect us from the back if we do our job correctly. And what is our job? Read along to find out the job of every believer and how that moves God to fulfill His promises in your life.
Isaiah 52:12 - For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the LORD will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rereward.
The promise for the month is very interesting that the God of Israel will be your rereward, which means that the God of Israel will protect you from behind and that from the back,God will protect you as given in many translations. This month, maybe a lot of people will be hit from behind, so what is the meaning of being hit from behind? It means being hit when you are not aware of being hit and when you can do nothing. For example, when you are walking and suddenly a car or somebody hits you from the behind, you will not know what had happened till you get up from that damage.
This makes this verse very important. Because all of us know that the virus is hitting us from the back and unemployment is hitting from the back for so many people. Suddenly they announce about the checking out of jobs and so many people are caught in a problem. That is the meaning of being hit behind the back. Being hit from the front means anyone can prepare themselves. You can see and you can resist. The promise very Cleary says the God of Israel will be your protection from the back. This is an amazing promise and this promise can be sure only through the anointing. That is why those who do not know the anointing will be going through tough days. Because if you do not know about the anointing you cannot receive the anointing. And if you don’t receive the anointing whatever should happen will happen. So it’s very essential that God gives us a revelation about the anointing. And we need to be thankful to God because he is telling us he is going to protect us from the back.
Our job is to do what the Lord desires. We have to make sure that we are doing what the Lord desires, and God is focusing on eternity and our job is to make our calling and election sure. And anyone who does not make his calling and election sure, there is every chance for him to fall. We have to go all out to what is pleasing to the Lord.
2 Peter 1:13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
The job of the apostles was stirring up the minds of the people. They were not talking about financial breakthrough and healing. They were not even talking about protection.
1Peter 3:10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
Peter was not against loving life and seeing good days. In the above verse we find him not saying let someone go for healing and deliverance meeting; let him go to this great prophet. Otherwise, he was talking about being a partaker of divine nature in order to see good days. There are so many people who are not experiencing the bible even after listening to so many teaching is because they are not making their calling and election sure. This is the main reason why people are not experiencing breakthrough in their lives. The problem is still we have not understood the word of God. We never understood what the apostles spoke. We need to be wise. Grace gives us a chance to repent and come in line with the plan of God.
Luke 13:6-9 He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
It is the father God who is speaking. Father God says cut it down. But Lord Jesus says let it alone this year also. Grace gives a chance, it does not tell you to keep on doing what God doesn’t like. Which is never mentioned in the bible – maybe it is the human bible. It’s hard to believe how believers can get brainwashed with these wrong teachings. We need to go into the bible become a partaker of divine nature, otherwise, we may lose so many things and cannot guarantee what else that can take place.
So God is telling you I’m going to protect you from behind. That is my job. But your job is to become a partaker of the divine nature; your job is to make you’re calling and election sure. If you don’t do your job – how will God do his job? If God doesn’t do his job it’s going to be a problem for you. We need to be 100 per cent sure. These last days will be days of great power.
Daniel 11:32 But the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
God wants you to do exploits. When darkness and gross darkness covers, you will do miracles. Get ready to get the word of God fulfilled. And nobody should be left behind. We can easily find out whether we are going to be left behind or not through our life itself. From the way God is moving in our lives itself is a sign. We can find our status through the way God is moving in our lives. We should make sure that we don’t come under the many, which will come and argue with God that we were in your presence. God wants you to be blessed.
