The message of the Lord on Dec. 1, for the closure of this year 2020

As I am (was) in prayer over this month of December, the closing month of this most troubled year 2020, I found that my thought(s) drifted in the direction of “closure” – what will this closure be like?

The question for us at this time of closure of 2020: will the Lord bless the latter days of this year more than its beginning, in our lives? Or will it be a time of judgment, on the basis of what God has seen in our hearts, words and works, throughout this year of great challenges?

God’s intentions for us, when we are tested, is shown in these words:

Deuteronomy 8:15 “who led you through that great and terrible wilderness, [in which were] fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty land where there was no water; who brought water for you out of the flinty rock; 16 “who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers did not know, that He might humble you and that He might test you, to do you good in the end.

“to do you good in the end” – will that be our closure after a year that for many has been like a “great and terrible wilderness, with fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty land”? Will God do us good in the end of this year?

From the start of 2020 I have been prophesying that God’s call for His people through this year was/is to leave the desert behind us, cross over the “Jordan” of our lives, which is symbolic of “the flooded river” that stops us from entering the Promise Land.

In the case of Joshua who led the Jews, who survived through the 40 years in the desert, crossing over Jordan and entering the valley of Jericho, was the beginning of a season of wars.

God had promised to give them the land for their inheritance, but they had to fight the wars needed in order to possess their inheritance. God’s promise was truly magnificent, as He said to them:

Deuteronomy 11:11 “but the land which you cross over to possess [is] a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water from the rain of heaven, 12 “a land for which the LORD your God cares; the eyes of the LORD your God [are] always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year.

The closure of 2020, for which God will appear, is related to the core message and main work of God in/for this year – the advancement of the Kingdom of God for the possession of the Promise Land.

That begins with our own hearts, as the Kingdom of God is first and foremost in our own heart(s). The Kingdom of God is all about His will be done on the earth as it is in Heaven, and that starts with our own individual hearts and lives.

A major aspect concerning the advancement of the Kingdom of God has to do with the defeat of the enemies who dwell in the very land of our own lives – our flesh in which we live our earthly lives.

The more we put to death the works of the flesh, that much more of God’s Kingdom is present within us and becomes manifest through our words and works, choices and decisions, which define our actions. That is a war within our own hearts, as Paul said in Romans 7:23.

The principal purpose of God at this time is the change of His ecclesia, by bringing change in each one of us. The key scripture:

John 3:30 “He must increase, but I [must] decrease.

“God started a war and the target of the war is our flesh!” – this is the overriding purpose of God through this season of this global pandemic!

It is a war within our own hearts, to advance the Kingdom of God within our own selves, as the first and primary goal of this war. The purpose is to change the Ecclesia so that we may be a more proper and accurate representation of King Jesus that we are called to represent, the Lion of the tribe of Judah who judges and makes war.
