We heard our Father say, “Keep holding fast, my beloved sons and daughters.
You have been faithful to embrace the hope of your ancestors: a promised homeland where you will dwell together in my presence forever.
For now, you see this paradise from a distance, but soon you will enjoy the firstfruits of your perseverance.
You cannot imagine the beauty and majesty waiting for you, because today you wrestle temporarily against temptations and painful trials.
I am your Resurrection Life and Blessed Restoration.
Reflect on my revelation and consider what I am about to do.
You are following Jesus at the end of a long succession of generations.
I have been preparing the nations for thousands of years to meet you and discover my truth through your prayers and testimonies.
Many will reject your message; yet, I have set apart some who will listen, believe, and receive my Messiah.
Stay alert and keep your eyes open for them.
The homeland where you are going is perfect and holy.
You will live safely in my presence and see all my creation, delighting in the indescribable joys of my kingdom.
Everyone will be surprised and in awe of Zion, because everyone born under the curse of Adam and Eve have only been able to experience righteousness partially.
When you are home with me, you will see fully for the first time.
You will be overwhelmed by my glory; you will truly be completely free.”
What does the Holy Spirit want us to see today?
We foresee our Future Homeland in Hebrews chapter 11, verses 13 to 16.
‘These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return.
But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.’
We foresee our Resurrection Reunion in 1 Thessalonians chapter four, verses 13 to 18.
Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.
For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.
For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.’
We foresee Zion’s Perfection in Isaiah chapter 62, verses 1 to 5.
‘Because I love Zion, I will not keep still. Because my heart yearns for Jerusalem, I cannot remain silent.
I will not stop praying for her until her righteousness shines like the dawn, and her salvation blazes like a burning torch.
The nations will see your righteousness. World leaders will be blinded by your glory.
And you will be given a new name by the Lord ’s own mouth. The Lord will hold you in his hand for all to see— a splendid crown in the hand of God.
Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land.”
Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight” and “The Bride of God,” for the Lord delights in you and will claim you as his bride.
Your children will commit themselves to you, O Jerusalem, just as a young man commits himself to his bride.
Then God will rejoice over you as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride.’
Father, we love you! Blessed be the name of the Lord! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Glory, glory, hallelujah! Hosanna in the highest! Maranatha!
Father, you made a way where there was no way for all creation to come home. Our home is wherever you are.
You are our Abba Father, and we are your sons and daughters adopted out of earth’s cursed orphanage into your eternal splendor.
We do not have words to describe your amazing love. Who is able to write a song that captures your glory?
All the swirling galaxies scattered across our immeasurable universe move and breathe, and discover their identity and purpose alone in you.
You are our Creator, the Lord of heaven and earth. Our planet is your footstool, and all the stars have sung your praises since creation’s first breath.
You know every hair on each of our heads, and you name every star. You count every grain of sand, and you measure every drop of water in the oceans.
We will never know you fully, for you are infinitely powerful and mysteriously wise. We surrender in faith and rest in your amazing grace.
Speak, Lord, for your servants are listening. We seek first your kingdom and righteousness, keeping our eyes fixed always upon you.
You are the Ancient of Days, our Faithful Shepherd and Wonderful Counselor, our Risen Glory King.
Father, you are Mankind’s Patient Potter. Jesus, you are Heaven’s Missionary. Holy Spirit, you are Heaven’s Blessing River.
You came to seek the lost and save those forsaken in darkness and bondage. We declare resurrection life, salvation, and deliverance over every tribe, tongue, nation, and people, in Jesus’ name and for his glory we pray, amen.
Thank you friends, for watching our Blazing Trees videos, and thank you so much for all the love, prayers, and generosity.
