Look and See what the Lord has done!
Apostle Aje Pelser, preached at Harvester Reformational Church, Cape Town
On a day when we think about what the Lord has done in a seemingly impossible year, we can reflect on three dimensions of God’s glorious Works in our lives: Protection, Provision and Promotion.
1. The dimension of Protection
There are countless cases of God’s protection from the Covid-19 virus in our church, and many have been healed of it too. We have always looked to the Lord, Jehovah Rapha, our healer. BY Jesus;’ stripes we were healed – when Jesus was beaten with a Roman whip, that moment was the release of our present healing and protection from any future virus. Jesus is our Passover that causes the angel of death to pass over our homes.
We make a point of worshiping in my home – play the meetings loud in your house, spiritual worship is essential, not just Christian music, it must have anointing. A while back our Worship practises became more like workshops to teach people how to play and sing songs. Something inside Chantal and I rose up and we told our band, let’s worship at Worship practise! It’s not about the music alone, it’s about directing your skill, passion and attention to God who is enthroned in the praises of His people. Worshipping as a band when we have time to explore new Spiritscapes, is amazing! Building a church where it will give us opportunity to worship in our own time, will open up new dimensions of the spirit for all of us. Let’s finish it and set up daily worship in that place.
But you can worship daily anyway remember?
Read about your protection in Psalms 91:
Psa 91:7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.
Psa 91:8 Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.
Psa 91:9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
Psa 91:10 No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
Psa 91:11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.
2. The dimension of Provision
There is a supernatural dimension of provision that we have entered into long ago. A supply line that never runs dry.
We had a prophetic word about angels directed people and provision to this church and this move of God. We are touching heaven in our meetings, releasing God’s kingdom in our daily walk of faith, expanding our spheres of influence to show God’s love to the world and making disciples of all nations. This triggers a response from our Father in heaven.
He would say: “Hey let’s help these guys! They are worshippers and they do what Jesus said!”
We have prophetic words and decrees of increase, like we heard last Sunday. Take your prophecies and turn them into Apostolic Decrees.
Apostle Andre received that prophetic word which he decreed a few months ago. When you have faith to decree it, it will come to pass. It is busy happening. God has already increased us this week on various levels.
Read Isiah 61 to stir your faith for Provision on a glorious level:
Isa 60:1 Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.
Isa 60:2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.
Isa 60:3 The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.
Isa 60:4 “Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at your side.
Isa 60:5 Then you shall see and become radiant, And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you.
Isa 60:6 The multitude of camels shall cover your land, The dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; All those from Sheba shall come; They shall bring gold and incense, And they shall proclaim the praises of the LORD.
Isa 60:7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you, The rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you; They shall ascend with acceptance on My altar, And I will glorify the house of My glory.
3. The dimension of Promotion
The Baptism of fire precedes promotion
Dan_3:25 “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”
Suffering is a form of spiritual promotion
Act 7:56 and said, “Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!”
The disciples in Acts rejoiced that they were counted worthy to suffer for their faith:
Act 5:40 And they agreed with him, and when they had called for the apostles and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.
Act 5:41 So they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name.
Act 5:42 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ.
Tribulation is a form of promotion and develops perfection:
Jas 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,
Jas 1:3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
Jas 1:4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
When the Lamb is promoted amongst us, we in turn are also promoted to be priests and kings with our God!
Rev 5:6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
Rev 5:7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.
Rev 5:8 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.
Rev 5:9 And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
Rev 5:10 And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.”
