Comfort My People; Their War Has Ended (Isa. 40:1-31)
Comfort, O comfort, My people, says your God. Speak kindly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that her warfare has ended, that her iniquity has been pardoned, that she has received of the hand of the Lord double for all her sins. The voice of him who cries out, "Prepare the way of the Lord in the wilderness, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Let every valley be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low, and let the rough ground become a plain, and the rough places a plain; then the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it" (Isa. 40:1-5).
I heard the Lord say that He has been preparing a powerful remnant to arise out of the ashes of battle. They are now been assigned individual responsibility to defeat strongholds and gates on this earth that have kept their generation in lack and in wandering. The Lord is comforting them as their trials and tests were severe. His hand on their past generations was heavy.
Yet He grew their characters when they were in the place of Kadesh-Barnea. Their forefathers left their assignments undone because they grew weary in their call and compromised their destiny falling short of how much more God had planned for them. They let the enemy get a foothold and settle in the land that was theirs. Therefore, their children and the generations that came after felt the onslaught of the enemy and could not cross over to take the land God had for them. Many perished due to disobedience and lack of wisdom.
But the Lord says, "This remnant generation that has pushed through, believing and preserving, will enter in. They have entered into a covenant of Hebron (meaning friendship) with me. Their wandering days are over. My glory and strength will be released and revealed through them. For they are my precious sons and daughters who kept the faith despite it all."
The Blessing of a Thousand Generations
"Know therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps covenant and mercy with them who love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations" (Deut. 7:9).
The Lord says, "These small remnants are mighty in my hand, mighty warriors. They are being called up and out of grave isolation, up and out of severe discouragement, up and out of deep disappointment as they did not quit trusting and believing My word for their generation even though they went through these tangible emotions. They are My forerunners and My forward-thinkers."
I then heard the thundering voice of the Lord as He spoke and flattened the mountains of strongholds and raised up the valleys of hope to take out the enemy with one blow that laid stake to His people's land. The Lord Himself made a way for them out of the desert of wandering and into their promised land.
The Lord then told me that the sins of their forefathers have been forgiven, and the heavens that were once like brass over them are now open. They are crossing over into 2019 with the Lord Himself blessing them to 1000 generations.
The Crossing-Over Blessing
"Moses My servant is dead, so now get up and cross over the Jordan—you and all this people—to the land that I am giving to the children of Israel. I have given you every place that the sole of your foot shall tread, as I said to Moses" (Josh. 1:2-3).
The Lord says, "These small but powerful remnants are stronger, more determined and have weathered the storm. No storm can take them out, because they were forged in the fires of great adversity. I have had My eye on them to ensure that their lives were preserved because of their undeniable faith in Me.
"As they cross over, they are entering places of great influence, places of significant authority. I am placing them strategically around the world to be catalysts of change, like my secret agents.
"Great kingdom influencers are arising in every nation, in every city and in every community. They are crossing over into 2019 like an army taking the land of the enemy one city at time for the kingdom of the Lord. They have accepted their call; they have accepted their assignments; and they will not compromise, and that's why God chose them. They are going to take every place the Lord is giving them, every place their feet touch, every territory that the enemy stole from their ancestors as the Lord blesses them a hundredfold. A powerful remnant is crossing over to possess their land in 2019, and the Lord their God is leading the charge."
