DELAYED DELIVERANCE REVEALS GREATER GLORY!

Six years ago, I released the word below which, now, has even greater significance for our nation. As we watch and pray concerning the election outcome, God is doing a deep work in our own hearts.  This process is taking a while for a reason…

Do we understand that the very things that are happening in our country could be the result of our prayers – not an attack against them?

If we are praying for America to “wake up”, why are some praying that the shaking would stop? If we are asking the Lord to expose the darkness, why should we be surprised – or fearful – when the darkness comes out of hiding, even to our own front doors? If we truly understand God’s larger redemptive purposes in the shaking, our prayers should reflect the heart of a loving Father. If we can look beyond the immediate crisis and into His eternal plan, we can see how He is at work in very powerful ways.

God’s ultimate goal is not our happiness or even our deliverance.
His ultimate goal is to REVEAL HIS GLORY.

We see this truth demonstrated in the Old Testament story of the Exodus from Egypt. Consider these facts, and interesting parallels to our own nation at this time:

  • God’s people were in bondage and began to cry out for deliverance.
  • God carefully orchestrated and prepared godly leadership to bring them out.
  • Things seemed to go from bad to worse for a period of time.
  • God chose not to deliver His people immediately….ON PURPOSE.
  • God not only used the ungodly authority in the land…He hardened it!
  • God’s people were freed only AFTER He sifted and purified their own hearts and lives of the idolatry and compromise that had infected them.

It has been suggested that every one of the ten plagues that God released upon Egypt corresponded to one of Egypt’s “gods”(click here for related article). As a loving, Heavenly Father, God saw the condition of the people’s hearts. Their lives had been corrupted by Egypt’s influence and He needed to cleanse them of the infectious beliefs and customs they had begun to embrace. Though they were crying out, “Rescue me!”, the Lord was saying, “Believe in me!” The people were only concerned with getting OUT. The Lord’s concern was getting them FREE.

Through every plague and disaster, He was cleansing and purifying their hearts and beliefs. In so doing, they were not only being prepared physically, but spiritually and mentally, for the freedom that was to come.

“But the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart and he would not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the LORD had said to Moses” (Exodus 9:12 NIV).

Every time Pharaoh said “no”, God had another opportunity to DEMONSTRATE to His people just how powerful He was. In every plague, His power overshadowed the principalities and spiritual rulers over that nation. He was showing His people, by example, how His power and love was greater than the foreign gods they had begun to embrace.

“You took me out of Egypt now take Egypt out of me. You delivered me from Pharaoh, now set me free from me. Let my heart become a promised land where the desert used to be. Lord, you took me out of Egypt now take Egypt out of me” (“You Took Me Out of Egypt” by David Baroni).

Our national gods of greed, power, humanism, and independence are being shattered and exposed for what they are – meaningless counterfeits and corrupted copies of God’s intended blessings and rightful inheritance for His sons and daughters. God will use WHATEVER IT TAKES to set us free. Our freedom is not just a national anthem. It is a spiritual reality that must settled and secured – whatever the price.

By the time the Israelites left Egypt, the fear of the Lord was upon every surrounding nation (Joshua 2:9-11, Numbers 14:14, Exodus 15:14-18). The glory of the Lord was known and feared because of what He did through the trials of Israel. THAT was His ultimate goal and plan. He demonstrated to the world that He is able to deliver His people and set them free from every kind of bondage and redeem all things unto Himself!

Speaking the truth is one thing – demonstrating the Truth with power is even better. Instead of praying for a quick resolution, we should be praying to be vessels and conduits of His glory.  You and I, my friends, are the carriers of true freedom and liberty. Let’s rejoice in the fact that we have been chosen and prepared for this hour when all the world will see His glory revealed. It will be totally worth any delay.

    And we know THE BIBLE DELARES THAT GOD DOES NOTHING WITHOUT FIRST REVEALING IT TO HIS PROPHETS. WE ALSO KNOW THAT THE WAY WE KNOW A REAL PROPHET FROM A FALSE PROPHET IS WHETHER OR NOT THE PROPHECY COMES TO PASS.

    Wanda, you are tried and true…Many are shaken because the Election at this time has been stolen. Your prophetic voice has Declared GOD’s TRUTH. As we pray, fast and believe—GOD is working Behind the Scene in a GREAT AND MIGHTY WAY TO REVEAL HIS GREAT POWER AND HIS GLORY OVER THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    DONALD JOHN TRUMP WILL SERVE ANOTHER TERM—AND AMERICA WILL SEE THE MOST AMAZING SIGNS AND WONDERS THAT THE LORD WILL SEND DURING TRUMP’S SECOND TERM.

    I WENT TO THE POLLS ON NOVEMBER 3RD, 2020 AND I VOTED THE BIBLE. i CAME HOME WITH GREAT PEACE, NOT KNOWING HOW GOD WOULD DO IT —BUT I KNEW THAT GOD PLACED DONALD JOHN TRUMP INTO OFFICE THE FIRST TERM—AND TRUMP HAS NOT COMPLETED WHAT GOD HAS PLANNED FOR TRUMP TO DO IN HIS SECOND TERM.

    i AM WAITING PATIENTLY FOR THE VICTORY TO COME….NOT KNOWING WHAT GOD HAS PLANNED—BUT RESTING IN HIS POWER OVER TRUMP’S ENEMIES BECAUSE THEY ARE GOD’S ENEMIES.

  2. What we need to understand is that God is dependent on man doing his responsibility, to keep His Commandments and Statutes (Deut 28) as Adam and Eve were to obey the Commandment, “Do not Eat the fruit…”

    Man has always had responsibility in the fulfilment of God’s will, that is why He gave His children the Commandment in the first place, in order for them to complete and perfect God’s Purpose of Creation.

    To become co-heirs and complete God’s Ideal, God gave man a portion of responsibility to fulfil, in order to become God’s perfected sons and daughters. Mt 5:48 “You therefore must be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect”.

    If we do not understand this, then we can not understand God’s will and purpose of Creation. Our obedience, and unity with God is integral, the key component for God to accomplish what He wants to accomplish. Without our keeping the Commandment, God’s Word, His Will is thwarted, His Will can not be achieved. However, ‘God has purposed, and He will bring it to pass’, but man must co-operate with God for that to happen.

    1 Sam 15 “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
    as in obeying the voice of the Lord?
    Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
    and to listen than the fat of rams.
    23 For rebellion is as the sin of divination,
    and presumption is as iniquity and idolatry.
    Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,
    he has also rejected you from being king.”

    God has been working for thousands of years to accomplish His Will, which should have been accomplished directly, had Adam and Eve obeyed their Father.

    This sums up God’s frustration at man, continually disobeying God, and not keeping His Word, and therefore his Will as Jesus also rebuked the people.

    So we must make atonement, pay restitution through prayer, fasting, sacrificing our desire for God’s desire, loving one another, so that God can intervene on our behalf. Otherwise why do we pray?

    We pay for the ‘petrol in the tank’, so that the car can move. That is why God is always looking for righteous people to do His will, not just people who passively or institutionally believe in God, but men like Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Jesus and so on. Man has to move, and act according to God’s Will for things to happen.

    Mt 12:46 “While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. 47 Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.”

    48 He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” 49 Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. 50 For whoever ‘DOES’ the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”

    Who are the true Christians? “Whoever ‘DOES’ the will of my Father in heaven is a true Christian.” Check out how many times Jesus told us to DO, to ACT, not just believe. If Adam and Eve truly loved their Father, then they would have DONE what He said, as is true for us.

    If you love your parents, do you do what they ask you to do, or do you disobey them, causing them grief and heartache?

    Gen 6:5 “The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the ‘Lord was sorry’ that he had made man on the earth, and it ‘grieved’ him to his heart. 7 So the Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the ground, man and beast and creeping things and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favour in the eyes of the Lord”.

    Did God predestine His own misery and suffering? No! Man failed in his responsibility to keep God’s Word as is still happening today, including Christians, hence the mess America is in. Had Christians been keeping God’s Word, acting as good stewards, America would not have got into this dire state. Lk 12:42-48

    Man is responsible, therefore Christians are responsible, as were the Israelites responsible to keep God’s Word, which meant ‘keeping’ Jesus, who came as the embodiment of the Word. Jesus was the Commandment incarnate, so therefore Jesus lives in the Word, and if we violate the Word, we violate Jesus and vice versa.

    Christians must now actively ‘Seek first God’s Kingdom and His Righteousness’ as Jesus commanded us, and ‘Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is closer than you think’.

    Then the body of Christ must become one as Jesus also prayed. Jn 17:20-23

    How can a body function if its members are at war or are working against each other. How is that loving one another.

    By definition, that is not the Kingdom of Heaven, so we have to get Step 1 in place to begin with.

    Unity is predicated on love, hence Jesus saying,

    Jn 15:12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17 This I command you, to love one another”.

    Wanda,
    You have made all this shaking make so much sense to me. Thank you. I am seeing the bigger picture in what God is doing and know the miracles will be greater than we can imagine. To stand in the fear of the Lord and embrace whatever He has for me to learn out ways any suffering or tine it takes. Thank you and blessings be upon you. Elyce

  5. Yes and amen, this morning as I heard a word given on Sid Roth about what Good is doing, I heard pay attention, the Liberty Bell is in Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh

  6. Amen, Wanda! Your spiritual insight is very much appreciated.

  7. There’s nothing new under the sun. God will, once again, demonstrate to the entire world that He, and He alone, is the all-powerful One. The whole world will see His glory and His fire-power as He takes down evil and vindicates those who serve Him. This is not a fearful time, but an exciting and expectant time. May the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord consume us all. I think it is a wonderful thing to fall into the hands of our Living God.
