What is it called when one has forgotten what was long ago known, and with defeat or victory hanging in the balance, must remember…must relearn…must reknow? Stand ye in the ways and see…and ask for the old paths…where is the good way…and walk therein…and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
What is this thing called: God’s Covering? Do we really need it?
YES! For only a Caped Crusader will have power in God!
Consider these scriptures: Isaiah 30:1-2 > “Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, BUT NOT OF ME, and that COVER WITH A COVERING, BUT NOT OF MY SPIRIT, that they may add sin unto sin: That walk to go DOWN INTO EGYPT, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the STRENGTH OF PHARAOH, and to trust in the SHADOW OF EGYPT.”
David knew of the COVERING of God when he wrote: “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under THE SHADOW of the Almighty.” And three verses later when he wrote: “He shall COVER thee with his feathers, and UNDER his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.”
In this day of American prosperity have we forgotten the COVERING of the Lord, for the love of money? Have we forgotten the young rich man to whom our Lord said forsake all? Or the disciples who were instructed to not even take an extra coat? Do we seek the COVERING of his shadow in which even the shadow of Peter, because of God’s COVERING, would heal the sick? Is this not the same Peter who said silver and gold have I none, but in the name of Jesus, rise up and walk?
Why am I targeting the sin of greed and materialism so much, for it is sure it is not the only vice robbing us of the anointing today and stripping our capes from us, leaving us to stand weak and ashamed. Love of money, lust, pornography, adultery, murder of babies…the list goes on and on…but so much preaching about MONEY. Be successful! Be happy! Live your dreams! And yet we are blind and naked, stripped of our capes, and do not even know.
King Saul’s army may be looking good right now, but David’s army is out there. They are moving behind the scenes and they have God’s COVERING! They have not gone to the world, to EGYPT for counsel! They have not gone to a medium, a witch for counsel! They have sought the Lord until the Cape of his anointing is upon them! David and his army of Caped Crusaders are out there, working behind the scenes, and when Saul’s army fails in a day, they will begin to rise!
Have you gone to EGYPT for your counsel? King Saul did not inquire of the Lord. David brought the Ark into Jerusalem after Saul and his army was dead, dead, and dead. A tragedy David wept over! And for Jonathon! A good man in the wrong army!
Oh, I don’t know if you even understand a word I am saying? Is your Pastor preaching EGYPT? Is your church seeking to COVER with a COVERING, but not of the Lord’s Spirit? And by so doing they add sin unto sin? If so, you are in the wrong army. You might even be a Jonathon in the wrong army. So sad. Come out from among them before it is too late! But must you be loyal to Saul? Just because he may have been a spiritual father to you?
Paul said, follow me as I follow the Lord. If I stop following the Lord, Leave me! Find someone who is! Find a David! Find God’s COVERING and be caped in his power again! Perhaps for the first time! Relearn, reknow, seek out the old ways of great spiritual forefathers! Leave this modern day EGYPT seeker!
Does your church seek worldly leadership? Do they glorify successful business men? Do they seek to learn from them? Do they run their church more like a business than the Kingdom of God? Do they seek strength from Pharaoh, and to trust in the SHADOW of EGYPT? IF SO, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! AND FIND A DAVID! FIND A PAUL FOLLOWING THE LORD!
Oh, I don’t know if you’re hearing me or not, with my silly Batman illustrations. Speaking of finding your Batcave, hearing your Gotham, donning your cape. Speaking of devotion, training, focus, and sacrifice.
They that do know their Lord, shall be strong…and do exploits.
“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries:: but the people who do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” (Dan. 11:32)
WE ARE CALLED TO BE MORE THAN A GOOD PERSON. WE ARE CALLED TO BE A PRIEST LIFTING UP HOLY SACRIFICES UNTO HIM. FROM THERE SHALL ARISE CAPED CRUSADERS OF WHICH BATMAN COULD ONLY DREAM. DO YOU UNDERSTAND PRIESTHOOD EVANGELISM? DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
