ICHABOD OR EBENEZER, YOU CHOOSE. Posted 052220 @ 12.22 pm
I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: ICHABOD OR EBENEZER, YOU CHOOSE. It is written in 1 Samuel 7.12: Then Samuel took a stone and set it between Mizpeh and Shen, and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying: Hitherto hath the LORD helped us. Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches; but let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth Me, that I am the LORD which exercises lovingkindness, judgment and righteousness in the earth; for in these things I delight. If ye follow on to know Me; My going forth is prepared as the morning and I shall come unto thee as the rain, as the latter and the former rain unto the earth. Be not like Eli or his sons, who thought they could rob Me and pervert My house. Eli's sons did not regard Me and they committed adultery and behaved wickedly. I warned My servant Eli but he refused to heed my warning, and did not rebuke his sons to turn from their wicked ways, therefore the slaughter of My people was very great, his sons both died on the same day in the battle, and the Ark of the Covenant was stolen by the Philistines. When Eli heard the news he fell backward and died also.
My glory shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together. And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto My commandments which I command you this day, to love Me and to serve Me with all your heart and with all your soul, I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily; and thy righteousness shall go before thee; and My glory shall be thy rereward. The Word was made flesh and dwelt among you, and ye beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of Myself, full of grace and truth. Ask of Me rain in the time of the latter rain; so I shall make bright clouds and give them showers of rain to everyone grass in the field. Whether ye eat or drink or whatsoever ye do, do all to My glory. Said I not unto thee that if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see My glory? Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and My glory is risen upon thee. For of Me and through Me and to Me are all things. I am the LORD: that is My name; and My glory will I not give to another, neither My praise to graven images. The whole earth shall be filled with My glory, and the sight of My glory is like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of My children. For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of My glory as the waters cover the sea. Every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to My glory.
But ye all, with open face beholding as in a glass My glory, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by My Spirit. Put away thine idols from out of your land and worship Me in spirit and in truth, and your house shall be filled with My glory and My excellency. I am the LORD of hosts. I am the King of glory. When My Son shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory; and before Him shall be gathered all nations; and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats; and He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand: Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry, and ye gave Me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and ye took Me in; naked, and ye clothed Me; I was sick and ye visited Me; I was in prison and ye came unto Me. Then He shall say unto them on the left hand: Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels; for ye gave Me no meat, ye gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and ye took Me not in; naked, and ye clothed Me not; sick and in prison, and ye visited Me not. Inasmuch as ye have not done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it not unto Me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into life eternal. Give unto Me the glory due unto My name; bring an offering and come before Me; worship Me in the beauty of holiness. For I am a sun and shield; I will give grace and glory; no good thing will I withhold from them that walk uprightly. ICHABOD OR EBENEZER, YOU CHOOSE. Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
