Today there was a great deal of angelic activity in our home and the Presence of the Lord was very strong in the worship room during my time of praise and supplication.
My heart was so hungry for the Lord that I went face down after praying in the Spirit for several minutes. I began to cry out to know what the Father is saying today that we can say and what He is doing that we can do. Suddenly, I was given a vision of a huge carousel. The animals on the carousel seemed to have life in them and were causing children to fall from their backs. I prayed for wisdom to understand.
The Holy Spirit began to reveal to me that the carousel was like a parable of the current wisdom being expressed by the leaders of the natural order. Most of their teachings are going round and round, but getting nowhere. I thought about these verses from 1 Corinthians:
However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.” The children represented a generation coming up now which will no longer tolerate the foolishness expressed in the wisdom of the world. (1 Corinthians 2:6-8)
I saw a horse carrying a child as it turned and leapt off of the carousel platform. The Holy Spirit revealed that some adults are breaking free from the hopeless wisdom of the world. They will be the ones to guide and help this new generation to embrace the truth of the Lord. They will be free from the things and people of this age who are coming to nothing.
I thought about the next verse in 1 Corinthians:
But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. (1 Corinthians 2:9)
The Lord’s provision for us is too wonderful for us to even fully comprehend now. This calls for faith. The question is: will we trust the Lord to open our eyes, ears and hearts to the wisdom which He alone can give?
The good news: the Lord has not left us without hope or help. Consider this message:
“But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.” (1 Corinthians 2:10-12)
Look closely at this powerful message in 1 Corinthians:
“These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Corinthians 2:13-14)
Like Paul we can declare, “But we have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 1:16).
In this season, the Lord has given us a powerful teacher. Yeshua has already revealed it and promised this blessing to all believers. I am praying for the Spirit of truth to come to each of us and guide our hearts and minds in the wisdom of the Lord. I am praying for us to be set free from the wisdom of the world and from the teachings of leaders who are coming to nothing.
May you have the mind of Christ and receive the full promise of the Lord:
“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.” (John 16:13-14)
I pray these things in the mighty name of Yeshua ha Messiach! Amen and Amen!!!
