2024: Word of Encouragement

This is neither from dreams or visions but prayer. At the beginning of 2023, the word I received from YHWH entailed Jeremiah 32 LXX
 (“Thus said the Lord God of Israel; Take the cup of this unmixed wine from mine hand, and thou shalt cause all the nations to drink, to whom I send thee. And they shall drink, and vomit, and be mad, because of the sword which I send among them. So I took the cup out of the Lord’s hand…”).
What we have seen in the last part of the year was exactly that, an escalation that rapidly spread to all corners of the world in the form of protests and demands for the world to side with Hamas which amounts to the annihilation of Israel.
Today the Lord reminded me of this chapter but with emphasis on verse 17:
“…for the Lord has a controversy with the nations, he is pleading with all flesh, and the ungodly are given to the sword, saith the Lord.”
So as the world spirals further and further into a world war (not to be solely about Israel), we have assurance and consolation in His mighty power to safeguard what He has determined to remain.
“O God, who shall be compared to thee? be not silent, neither be still, O God. For behold, thine enemies have made a noise; and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. Against thy people they have craftily imagined a device, and have taken counsel against thy saints. They have said, Come, and let us utterly destroy them out of the nation; and let the name of Israel be remembered no more at all. For they have taken counsel together with one consent: they have made a confederacy against thee; even the tents of the Idumeans, and the Ismaelites; Moab, and the Agarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalec; the Philistines also, with them that dwell at Tyre. Yea, Assur too is come with them: they have become a help to the children of Lot. Pause. Do thou to them as to Madiam, and to Sisera; as to Jabin at the brook of Kison. They were utterly destroyed at Aendor: they became as dung for the earth. Make their princes as Oreb and Zeb, and Zebee and Salmana; [even] all their princes: who said, let us take to ourselves the altar of God as an inheritance. O my God, make them as a wheel; as stubble before the face of the wind. As fire which shall burn up a wood, as the flame may consume the mountains; so shalt thou persecute them with thy tempest, and trouble them in thine anger. Fill their faces with dishonour; so shall they seek thy name, O Lord. Let them be ashamed and troubled for evermore; yea, let them be confounded and destroyed. And let them know that thy name is Lord; that thou alone art Most High over all the earth.”
Psalm 82 LXX
Cff./see also Jeremiah 42.
Christ is King of kings, Lord of lords, and not about to leave us nor forsake us.
Through His faithfulness, and attention to daily prayer and repentance, we will stay on top of this.
