...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night,
to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
"IGNORANCE IS NEVER AN EXCUSE"
Words of prophecy:
* "Ignorance" is never an excuse for any one of My children. For, truly I say to you, if one is faithful [on a daily basis] to enter into the intimate fellowship in the "inner chamber" that I require of
each and every one of My children they will SURELY have the necessary revelation in any given moment to overcome the schemes of the Evil One against them. In this hour, one will either overcome through faith and trust in and by the power of My Spirit [the
Spirit of Love; the Spirit of wisdom and revelation etc.] - or they will be overcome. If one perceives that they are being overcome [overwhelmed] by the Enemy they must draw near to Me, and begin to fully access the great Grace that is available to them through
the exercising of an absolute faith and trust in Me [Romans 5:1-2 KJV].
As they do it is certain that I will right the situation[s] they find themselves in, presently, by My great and awesome Power - with a view to them entering into the "fullness"
of all that I have created them for [called them to] in this final hour. But if one, in a spirit of mistrust [unbelief] and rebellion, refuses to draw near to Me then surely they will be carried away on the great wave [tide] of deep darkness that is, even
now, encompassing the world - and all those in "heart-fellowship" with it [James 4:4].
"ignorance"- the condition of being uneducated, unaware, or uninformed [in this case, through a certain "ignoring" of God's Word];
...."My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge [a revelation of their Covenant]".... Hosea 4:6 NASB
....'The secret [of the sweet, satisfying
companionship] of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its [deep, inner] meaning. [John 7:17; 15:15.]".... Psalms 25:14 The Amplified Translation
...."Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world".... 1 John 4:4 The Amplified Translation
...."Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And
His glory will appear upon you".... Isaiah 60:1-2 NASB
When one is seeking to walk by faith it becomes an absolute necessity to draw near to God on a continual basis just to stay in faith - as
opposed to one's own understanding [through fear and unbelief].
...."Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will
make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear [reverence] the LORD and turn away from evil".... Proverbs 3:5-7 NASB
...."Draw near to God and He will draw near to you".... James
...."Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of Grace, that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find Grace to help in good time for every need
[appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it]".... Hebrews 4:16 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You
for the wonderful life of faith that You have called us to - a life that is filled to overflowing with Your goodness, kindness and favour. And we give You all praise and honor and glory [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name. Amen.
...."I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the [life] which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me".... Galatians 2:20 NASB
