I hope you are all well today. I am well and had a great weekend with our local church family in Bellingham, Washington. We have several people who have been battling sickness of one kind or another, but God is in our midst. The challenges in our world are only meant to reveal the goodness of God’s presence in our lives in all things. We have peace with God and with one another as we embrace Him together and experience the wholeness of His life that comes to us from God our Father in all things.
It is through our connection with Holy Spirit that we know the peace of God. It is not peace that we seek, but God that we seek. Our gift of life is God in us, upon us, and with us in all things. Peace is the fruit of our connection to God, not our means of connecting to Him. The false prophets in the days of Jeremiah offered peace, but without God there is no peace.
Jeremiah 8:11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, saying, ‘Peace, peace!’ When there is no peace.
The peace of God is not about the healing of our hurts. It is a testimony of being one with God and one with one another in His presence with us as His family in every aspect of our lives. The objective of our path is not peace. It is the fruit found in our path. The objective of our path is that we might know God and to know one another by His presence in, through, and with us all. Jesus came as the Dayspring into our hearts that we would know the light of Christ even in the darkest of times in the world around us.
Luke 1:78 Through the tender mercy of our God, with which the Dayspring from on high has visited us; 79 To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”
Our path is not the objective of our day. It is knowing God. It is in knowing the Dayspring that our feet find the way of peace set before us. There are a lot of unknown things going on in the world, but the unknown things of God’s kingdom are different than the unknown things of the world. The unknown things in the world can inspire fear and anxiety regarding the future, but the unknown things of God’s kingdom will always lead us into a place of God’s peace. They lead us into the place of a future and a hope of the life of God in all things. Holy Spirit in our lives is God in us, upon us, and with us in all things. He doesn’t come to teach us in ways that fulfill the questions asked found in the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. He teaches us in ways that lead to the testimony of the tree of life and being a family grafted into that tree of life. The fruit of that tree is always life and life-giving to others.
In the same way that Jesus assured His disciples of the path that was before them, we can be assured that the path that God has for us will do the same.
John 14:25 “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”
After Jesus ascended into heaven, the Holy Spirit revealed all that Jesus had said to His disciples in a revelatory and life transforming way. He does the same in our lives today. The revelation that He brings is not a revelation for information. It is a revelation for the path of our feet that is guided by the desires of our hearts. God is the author and abundant supplier for those desires that are birthed within us.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
I believe that the world is wrestling through times of trouble, but the path that God has chosen for us is a path of peace. It is our connection to God through His Spirit that will give us true peace. That peace is not merely the absence of conflict or an assurance of everything working out in our lives. It is a testimony of the wholeness of God in our lives. It is a testimony of our wholeness in Him. What Jesus spoke to His disciples was true during the troubles of their day and that same reality is true for us in the troubles of our day.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
There is nothing in the world that has the power to overcome us. Not even death can overcome our assurance of all that is in the house of God in heaven. It is time to celebrate the life of God and to celebrate that life with Him and with one another. The peace offerings of the Old Covenant were offerings of participation. They were offerings that gave the life of the flesh and the fatness of life of the flesh to God to participate in the life of His Spirit and the fatness of His life-giving anointing. They were offerings shared with one another in the choicest parts of the provisions of God in our lives because of our connection to Him and one another as the family of God and friends with Him and one another. It doesn’t matter what trouble there is in the world, our portion is a portion of life in all things!
January 16, 2022 – A prophecy by Ted J. Hanson
Watch and see, as I open up dimensions that you’ve not thought of before. When I use the word ‘restoration’, I’m not calling things to be restored as you have known them. I’m calling for things to be restored as I have seen them – as I have known them. This is a season of My table, not a season of mere victories over an enemy. It’s a season of discovering Me and the things of me in new ways and in new realities. For there is going to be a deeper communion and a stronger community. There is going to be a greater revelation regarding dimensions that are going to be discovered of Me by you, even in this season of your life. Watch and see as even in science and technology there’s a discovery of dimensions that have not been thought of before. These are but signs of the things that I am really doing. For what I’m really doing is a matter of the heart. What I’m really doing is a matter of the table. Some things are on the table that you are not aware of. Some things are at the table that you’ve not seen. And this table is a table of life, it’s a table of abundance, it’s a table of greater expectations. So, watch and see, as I open up dimensions for you that are beyond where you’ve been before.
God has set a table for us in the midst of our enemies. It is time to feast with Him and with one another in the table of the Lord. It is there that we will know His perfect peace.
