Standing in the COUNCIL of GOD
Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:3
This is a heavenly place not a natural place. It is the place where the Truth and Law will come from to help the Earth.
Now it shall come to pass in the latter days That the mountain of the Lord’s house Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And peoples shall flow to it. Micah 4:2
This Place is going to become the Head of all things. It may not seem like that today- but this is written and it will come to pass. The words of Isaiah will again ring true-
Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel From the Lord of hosts, Who dwells in Mount Zion. Isaiah 8:18
Signs will come from Mount Zion. Families will be for signs and wonders, and true holy Government.
God stands in the Council of the Holy Ones and is AWESOME there –
Heaven thanks you for your wondrous acts, Lord— for your faithfulness too— in the assembly of the holy ones. Is there any in the sky who could compare to the Lord? Who among the gods is equal to the Lord? God is respected in the council of the holy ones; God is awesome and revered more than all those around him. Palm 89:5-7 CEB
Don’t you want to see that? Jesus wants that too for you. He prayed –
John 17:24 “Father, I want those you gave me to be with me where I am. Then they can see my glory, which you gave me because you loved me before the creation of the world.”
The shocking truth of the Gospel is that Jesus hid us in Heaven already. We are in some way already there –
“…immense in mercy and with an incredible love, he embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on his own, with no help from us! Then he picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah.Now God has us where he wants us..”
JESUS did it for us! BUT what are we going to do about it?
Colossians 3 says we are “Wrapped in Christ in God” in Heaven. The Message translation says our REAL LIFE is there NOW. The book of Hebrews continues this idea with the bold declaration that “WE HAVE COME to Mount Zion” – it is NOW! We HAVE come- not we WILL come.
But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks Heb 12:22-24
We are invited to SEE, PARTICIPATE and be MOVED by this place. Is is the place of SECRET councils. It is our True Home. We are beginning to identify and see some of these places in the Spirit. It may be through a glass darkly right now, but it’s getting clearer as we focus and honour this, it has weight on the Earth. In Heaven there is –
Galactic Council/ Sanhedrin
Place of Elders
Chambers of the Kings
Throne Room & the Sea of Glass
Places of Discussion
Documentation Places – Books of the Future
…and much more.
The Prophets of old all saw elements of this. But what if we are living in the Day where it is to be explored and revealed like Daniel saw… seal it up UNTIL. There has to be an UNTIL time. The heroes of the faith were those who moved passed time into the UNTIL. Daniel saw this –
As I was watching, thrones were raised up. The ancient one took his seat. His clothes were white like snow; his hair was like a lamb’s wool. His throne was made of flame; its wheels were blazing fire. A river of fire flowed out from his presence; thousands upon thousands served him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood ready to serve him! The court sat in session; the scrolls were opened. (The courtroom was called to order, and the books were opened). Daniel 7:9-10
Heaven RULES. Whatever is happening today, no matter how opposite. God sites in Heaven and laughs at the efforts of mankind to do it without Him. We cannot do anything without Him. Our systems are collapsing in our folly.
The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations.Psalm 33
God has the last say. But amazingly He always shares his Council with someone. We are invited to be that someone.
For the Lord Jehovah doth nothing, Except He hath revealed His counsel unto His servants the prophets. Amos 3:7
ENOCH is one of those who Stands in the Council. He saw it and was so moved he asked for a Place there -This is his story:
There before me was another house, greater than the first. It was open to me but was built of flames of fire. It was so splendid and magnificent that words fail me to describe it to you. Even the floors were of flame and above me were lightnings and even the path of the stars was seen. Yet the very ceiling appeared to be made of flaming fire. As I peered further into this house there as a high throne with the appearance of crystal and wheels. It had wheels like bright sunlight and I could see Cherubim. From underneath this throne came streams of even more fire and it was impossible to look further at it. Great glory seemed to be seated upon the Throne; the very living God, God Almighty and His clothing shone brighter than the sun and were whiter than snow. So magnificent was He, that not even the angels of Heaven could look at Him. Still more surrounded Him and a great fire was before Him and no one could come near the Lord. As I looked I saw that what must be over a million person standing before the Throne. There was no sign of anyone acting as a Counsellor to Him.
This is the call in our day to STAND there. We cannot continue to listen to FALSE messages any longer –
“Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you. They make you worthless; They speak a vision of their own heart, Not from the mouth of the Lord..
For who has stood in the counsel of the Lord, And has perceived and heard His word? Who has marked His word and heard it?
…The anger of the Lord will not turn back Until He has executed and performed the thoughts of His heart. In the latter days you will understand it perfectly.
“I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
But if they had stood in My counsel, And had caused My people to hear My words, Then they would have turned them from their evil way… Jer 23: 17-24
That is the CALL – to hear the TRUE voice from HEAVEN. Haven’t we had enough of Earthly words?
In the last days the Bible says we will “understand it perfectly”. Surely that must be for now then in the last stage of that timeframe? This passage teaches if we STAND there we will TURN the people. I can think of no greater need today.
Surely there is still a door standing open and a voice calling us to “Come up here and see what must soon take place!”
I realise there’s a lot to digest in this BLOG today. Guess I gave you a plate of meat. Cut it up, cook it, chew it. Forced change is here. Before this generation is out we will see we cannot live by bread alone but only by every word from the Mouth of God.
In His eternal bliss and comfort, Justin Abraham
