The New Dawn of The Faithfulness of God
Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another,
And the Lord listened and heard them;
So a book of remembrance was written before Him
For those who fear the Lord
And who meditate on His name.
“They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts,
“On the day that I make them My jewels.
And I will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him.”
Then you shall again discern
Between the righteous and the wicked,
Between one who serves God
And one who does not serve Him. Malachi 3:16-18
Certainly we are in exciting times in which God the Father is deliberate about the manifestation of His eternal faithfulness to those who have stayed the course to follow Him through the many hills and valleys on the path, even as they come into the reality of the mountain of the Lord’s house. The time has come for many of the things hidden in God to manifest in His people. His faithfulness will bring it to pass.
God is faithful
Without faith it is impossible to please God and without faith God also is incapacitated towards us. God, in His eternal nature, works through faith and by that He too is called faithful i.e. (full of faith towards His word to us).
On 13th of this month of April, I woke up with these words “The New Dawn of the Faithfulness of God” having had a few dreams that same night that I won’t share here. It certainly was a great word the moment it came, but the more I tried to wrap my mind around it the more I realized I didn’t understand what it meant, until the Lord had me read Malachi 3:13-18. I have been reading this very same scripture for years but it never made sense until this recent reading. The first thing that jumped out at me was “Your words have been harsh against Me,” Says the Lord,“Yet you say, ‘What have we spoken against You?’. At first I was like, how is it even possible for God to be “complaining” about the harshness of His own people against Him? And then also in my head I’m like how is it even possible for me as a man to be harsh against God? I tell you it made no sense. But when I read verse 14 and 15, suddenly light came and I started crying. I could not hold myself together, for the picture God was creating within my heart was overwhelming and at the same time comforting. The scripture continued, “You have said, ‘It is useless to serve God; what profit is it that we have kept His ordinance, and that we have walked as mourners before the Lord of hosts? So now we call the proud blessed, For those who do wickedness are raised up; they even tempt God and go free.” Reading the above scripture, my mind was taken back to the beginning of my journey with God, the many pains and suffering I have had to endure, the separation from family and friends, the many frustrations that came my way and how within the journey I had thought God was partial, allowing those that walk away from Him to be blessed while the ones that follow Him suffer. Truth be told, until this encounter with Malachi 3, I had not thought that I had judged God unfaithful towards His own. It was like He was saying “do you really think I am not faithful to those who have forsaken all to follow Me”? I asked for forgiveness and then the Lord made me understand that one of the reasons for the Corona virus pandemic is to create a starting point from when His faithfulness will be seen by His own. I can’t explain how that whole word from the Lord feels nor do I know how to explain that what the entire world sees as a pandemic was actually the signal that the new dawn of God’s faithfulness has come. But it gives comfort to know that nothing is in vain when it comes to God’s dealing with us and that He, God, is faithful. It is a beautiful reality backed up by His truth.
The snow mountain
In 2014, that was about seven years after the Lord chased me out of the institution church, the Lord showed me a vision. At this time I was with a house fellowship that held meetings every mid-week. At the time of having this vision, I had already been having the feeling that I was to leave the house fellowship and go wherever else God would have me go. So, on this particular day, I was shown this vision. In the vision, I was seated on the back of a bicycle riding with someone whose face I didn’t see. Suddenly the back tyre got punctured and we had to find a way to fix it. But interestingly, right where the bicycle stopped was a tree and hanging on the tree was the painting of the Lord’s Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci. Quite an interesting scene I must say. As I looked around to understand what the place was about, a man whom I believed was the bicycle repairer came to me and said that this was the place where the Lord had His last supper with His disciples. I was quite surprised, but became even more surprised when the man went ahead to repair the tyre of the bicycle with a fruit that I knew as guava. As he worked on the punctured tyre, my eyes turned towards a direction across the road and I saw in the distance a mountain with snow at the top. It was a magnificent white mountain. From where I was standing, I could see the path that lead to the mountain and how it passed through a river and some rocky valleys. Somehow in my mind, I knew that’s where I was going. So I left both the bicycle and everybody under the tree and started walking towards the white mountain. The vision ended. Over the past six years, I have seen myself at various stages of that same journey to the white mountain. I brought up this story of the vision in this article to encourage someone that when God puts you on a path, He watches over both you and the path even when you are not aware of Him doing so. So last night I was having a chat with one of my senior friends who is a pastor. We just got talking about the season and how God is ending the mental age and bringing His people into the spiritual age leading to the return of the Lord. Incidentally, he was the same person who in 2014 interpreted the vision that I have shared for me, he told me then that it was my life’s journey towards the mountain of the Lord. So as we chatted last night, he said “The hour has come and the fullness of time of the righteousness which has been undergoing nurture in the desert of solitude.” The words he said, coupled with the other things the Lord had been sharing, created such an excitement in me and I knew God was up to something amazing. Then this morning I had a dream where I was on a mountain with snow everywhere and I was playing around or something. I woke up from that dream more excited at whatever it is God is doing. Then to cap the entire story, I looked out of the window and from where I stood, I could see Mount Kenya with its white snow-capped peaks. I have never seen it from that position before, so I didn’t think it was even possible from that distance. It was magnificent and just an exact replica of the white mountain I had seen in my vision in 2014. Are these coincidences? I do not believe so. Because from where I was standing to Mount Kenya was about 130 kilometers, so how it became visible even in the midst of that morning cloud was quite a miracle. So have you been on a journey with the Lord and it seems it’s taking long, this is the season of reaching where He has been taking you to.
This is the actual photo I took this morning of Mt. Kenya, 130km away, on a hobby camera. The eye sees much better.
They are my Jewels
The faithfulness of God is great and He will hold nothing back until His words over our lives become realities. Certainly, the Lord is bringing an age to a close and introducing us into something new in Himself. It is easy to follow the emotion of the world even in this season of pandemic but for those who have not turned their eyes away from the goal and vision that they received of the Lord, they shall surely be made His jewels of high and eternal value. For when the merchants of this Old World, which is called Babylon the Great, that is folding up cry and mourn over the loss of their merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men; then the Lord will be introducing His precious Jewels so that there will once again be a difference between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and the ones who do not serve Him. The zeal and the faithfulness of the Lord are willing and are doing it…NOW.
In the days to come
Some of you because of your faithfulness in small things, and because of the faithfulness of God concerning us all, your assignments will change, while some will be upgraded in this new season. Some of you will be made to repeat the level you are now because your works have not pleased God. Repentance is key for the next level of life on earth. But majorly for the sons of God, it is the season to walk deeper with the God that has come to show Himself faithful to His own. The world economy and the system around it that is crashing right now is Babylon the Old World Order which was birthed in the land of Shinar, and which also is the sixth kingdom powered by capitalism and out of which the seventh kingdom (the New World Order) of the anti-Christ will emerge. The rule of the anti-Christ is the eighth that must come out of the seven and which must go to perdition (destruction). See this: “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition. Revelation 17:9 The days of the antichrist and the tribulation it brings are nothing compared to the glory of the Lord that will be manifested in His people. In that, we can always rejoice.
In conclusion, I must quickly add that the coming days of the tribulation on earth and this new era of the faithfulness of God towards His people, are not the days of gathering of things. They will mirror the days that the Lord was referring to when He said “…when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. (See Mathew 24:15-22) It is not the days of carrying material weights and for nursing babies that still need the milk of the word of God. The truth about who we really are will be revealed in the days to come. You have been raised for such a time as this, but are you ready?
Blessings. From your brother.
