He is Lord over the seas

Zachariah 9:10 - And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.

I received this message on Saturday (23rd June) but for some reasons I could not send the message, so firstly I would apologize for the delay.

This message is to do with global situation that is taking place and as to where it is trending towards. A horse in the Bible has been a symbol of progress or moving into the next stage and a chariot symbolizes abundant progress (the word is also translated as milestone - a landmark on the way). In this message the Lord is telling us He is causing the world's speed of prosperity / development to slow down.

The past years the world has seen rapid development. The Lord is saying there will be a worldly slow down and this will also affect His people. But there is good news to this and that is countries will not battle with each other for they will not be able to afford it.

This is a short phase between a great turn which will cause dramatic events to take place. Like we received a message on the 12th about the reconciling between the heathens, today's message also tells us the about the coming together of those who do not believe in the Lord. We will not only see things like Chrislam but even other religions building strong bonds with each other. This is not happening by the powers of Satan but is been allowed by the Lord. This does not mean the Lord is against His people or has forgotten His people.

We need to understand when God created man He knew sin would come into man and it would increase yet the Lord allowed it to increase, but then He did not just fold His hands and sit back but He had set a limit to the extent that sin flourishes so that His people do not perish in it. He also made a way for them to be saved from sin, not only be saved from sin but also to overcome sin and destroy the power of sin.

[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, there are times we see things not going our way, in fact going against us. But Lord You allow these for even an arrow needs to be pulled back to go far, far ahead at great speed. Lord, let your Word be written in our hearts and let us do not be disheartened when we see things happen around us. Let your Spirit strengthen us and our testimony in You hold us...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
