Isaiah 59:21 “As for me, this is MY COVENANT WITH THEM,” says the Lord. “My Spirit, who is on you, and MY WORDS that I have put in your mouth will not DEPART from your mouth, or from the mouths of your children, or from the mouths of their descendants, from this time on and forever,” says the Lord.
“Words…words, words. I don’t need words. I want to feel, I want to touch, I want to see.” These were my friend’s words as I took time to talk to her about God and why I believe in Him. ‘Why should I put my trust on Someone who is not tangible?’ she argued out her case. And at best, even though I couldn’t be able to give her what she wanted…eventually, she did confess this. ‘Even though I cannot see God…I feel Him in the air…and I want to reach out and touch Him. But HIS AURA is here with us…thanks to your words! And right there and then, I realized that she had made her own confession…not in a faith that is tangible, but a faith that comes through hearing…and hearing the Word of God.
In many aspects of life…many people have become hard of hearing. If one cannot hear, then words have no meaning to them. And when words lack meaning…they are not repeated and when they are not repeated…they are not passed on. When they are not passed on…then a generation raises up which has no connection with the past generation. Then…history repeats itself.
Exodus 1:8 Then a new king, who DID NOT KNOW ABOUT JOSEPH, came to power in Egypt.
I see this reality being played out in the world we are living in. Egypt which represents the world and its system…does not know about Joseph…who represents the Christian church as pilgrims on earth. The world does not function on words…let alone on…<strong A COVENANT OF WORDS. What was said yesterday, will be changed, amended or ratified tomorrow. The words of the world…keep changing…keep evolving that its hardly possible to keep up.
But there is a COVENANT OF WORDS…for the children of God. Words that were first spoken to Abraham, and passed on to Isaac, and after to Jacob. Words that Israel has kept alive for generations. Words which have not changed ever since they were first spoken. Words…which will and cannot be SHAKEN. WORDS EVERLASTING. The words that became flesh and dwelt among us. The words that says, I AM!
John 8:58 “I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, ‘before Abraham was born, I AM!
I AM means the COVENANT OF WORDS unchangeable, unshakable. Words that have creative power, redemptive power, sustaining power and resurrection power.
Which words are you listening to? Are you part of the I AM?
Stay connected, my friends to the I AM WHO I AM and live!
