Reaching the Peak, Psalm 125

 Reaching the Peak, Psalm 125



TO THE HIGHEST OF HEIGHTS


I had a definite picture of God enveloping all things and within this envelop all things were in Him.

I saw God transcending  the entire universe being the transcendent  God .

Far above the highest mountain.

ABOVE ALL POWERS


You see you are above the mountain when you speak defeat and negative - here you have already spoken yourself out of what God proclaims upon your life.

David defeated Goliath because of what he spoke upon him.

Do not prophesy upon your life by saying "I can never defeat this Goliath"

Speak to it and say "I will defeat you"

You see now we are at the peak of the mountains and we are looking over the City - so do not prophesy over that City.

Do not say "You will never make it"

Proclaim it's salvation and deliverance.

You [you]  speak over peoples lives .."O I will sue you" I have my rights above yours", - "I am more important than you "

In this we are speaking over other people and their lives and we are prophesying their future .

Indeed we prophecy over people.

I remember someone saying "O that is what he is like - he will never change"

Command your words - today and know that God is above all powers .

As you reach the peak  of the Mountain realise that what you speak upon your life is what you prophesy upon yourself.

God is above all this and transcends what you speak - but He is limited by what you soeak upon your own life and other people .

Begin to turn in your ascent today and see the transcendent God.

JESUS SPEAKS ABOVE YOU


And so Jesus stood over Jerusalem and spoke

Luke 19:41  As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it

Luke 13:34  "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.

It is the right path, the hard path, the righteous path, the Narrow way, that is the ascent in Psalm 125.

Not the crooked path, not the easy path,npt the shortest route.  Isaiah 40:3  - Luke 3:5.

It is the Lord who guides Isaiah 42:16


I will lead the blind by a way they do not know, In paths they do not know I will guide them. I will make darkness into light before them And rugged places into plains. These are the things I will do, And I will not leave them undone."
Blind faith, a way using a Light [as if we are guided by a Light through the desert] a candle in a darkened room, a beacon, a Lamp that shines in a dark place.

We have reached the peak and now look over Jerusalem - "but what shall we speak over it ?"

"What shall we speak over our lives ?"

THE POWER OF YOUR SPEECH


You see there are times when God will seem to betray you

You pray ,like Elijah ....
 
James 5:17  Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.

Elijah prophesied his own future - here he had to live through the famine and drought.

It is a time when God hides Himself -  Isaiah 45:15  Truly you are a God who has been hiding himself, the God and Savior of Israel.
Break through this ...

Rise up and do not be surprised when your words rise up against [you]  ...  Matthew 27:46


Elijah could have died through his own words... [he now had to live thorugh this three year drought and famine...

You see the brook dried up for Elijah as well - he spoke agianst his own life [in the  brook Cherith]


This was the Kerith ravine [color=blue]1 Kings 17:3[/color]

Here Elijahs stream dried up.


THE SEVEN MESSAGES AND THE SEVEN HILLS


One more thing to observe here are the words of the mad prophet Balaam - when the Spirit of God came upon him :

 Numbers 24:2 When Balaam looked out and saw Israel encamped tribe by tribe, the Spirit of God came on him

Balaam speaks upon Israel with seven messages, upon this city of seven hills, as Jerusalem is surrounded by seven hills.



I would like to end this study by going back to the beginning

"I had a definite picture of God enveloping all things and within this envelop all things were in Him.

I saw God transcending  the entire universe being the transcendent  God .

Far above the highest mountain."


Here God is the rock and fortress,protector and defender, being above the hills and above Israel - yet somehow He can tabernacle with them [as Balaam lifted his eyes and saw them dwelling in tents.

 Numbers 24:2 YLT and Balaam lifteth up his eyes, and seeth Israel tabernacling, by its tribes, and the Spirit of God is upon him,


Lord God in Jesus name, I lift my eyes to the hills and speak intercede /moderate / take action /  into my life and others and proclaim Your words into lives today and into their minds and hearts and mouths  - in Jesus name Amen
