Be Prepared to Uproot – REPOST FROM MARCH 2002

Be Prepared to Uproot – REPOST FROM MARCH 2002  L. Lyons

This is a re-post from 2002.  This reality is fast approaching, and applicable

for  this day.

“Now the leaders of the people dwelt at Jerusalem, the rest of the people

cast lots to bring one out of ten to dwell in Jerusalem, the holy city, and

nine-tenths were to dwell in other cities”.  (Neh 11:1)

The book of Nehemiah has become quickened to me as a blueprint for

what God is doing with His church, and how He is ushering in His

kingdom.  Nehemiah was the spiritual authority and master builder

for God’s program.  “..the people” were willing to do whatever God

wanted to do.  This remnant was a “people” who had forsaken all.

“and everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or

mother or wife or children or lands, for My names’s sake, shall receive

a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life.” (mat 19:29).  They were sold

out for their God.

This time, God, not the people is casting the lots.  He is beginning

to call forth those whom He has selected.  However, we have to be

willing participants in His program and His kingdom.

He is calling forth those whom He has selected.  However, we have

to be willing participants in His program and His kingdom.

He is calling forth the apostolic, prophetic, pastoral, the minstrels,

intercessors, teachers, worshipers, evangelists and those who

“carry the burden upon their backs”.  The Mary’s and Martha’s.

When the angels uncap the ancient wells at the command of our

Lord, “the people” will be in place.  Geographically situated according

to God’s purpose.  I believe as Philip the evangelist was whisked to

another location, so shall members of the body of Christ be

strategically moved.

As the Kingdom of God begins to take shape, many are going to

have to make difficult decisions.  It will require self-denial and

courage.  THEIR world will be turned upside down, as they are

called to turn upside down THE world.

Leslie Lyons

I have been a church-goer most of my life. I have been in the Charismatic revival, and most recently the Prophetic and Healing revivals. I have written on Christian Doctrine since 2001. I have written three books, "Notes on the Book of Psalms", "Notes on Job" and "Notes on Revelation". Psalms is available as a free e-book download. I attended Bible Institute, an online Christian school for pastoral studies. I find His Word delightful, and my greatest pleasure is to find golden nuggets of truth!
