Many people are speaking of chaos right now. Many times in the Bible order came out of chaos and order will come out of chaos again in America. Gen.1:1-3,TPT—”When God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was completely formless and empty, with nothing but darkness draped over the deep. God’s Spirit swept over the face of the waters. And then God announced: “Let there be light,” and light burst forth!” 1Cor.14:33—“For God is not a God of confusion but of peace…”
Kathy—Some people fear that civil war might come to our nation again but civil war is not coming, it’s already here. It just doesn’t look like the Civil War we had in 1861. Civil war is defined as “ordinary citizens or ordinary communities opposing and fighting one another”, and so goes the daily news. It is not a matter of the North against the South or blue against gray this time. Hired bullies have been sent into ordinary communities to start wars. Pockets of ordinary citizens throughout the nation are caught up in multiple, noble sounding conflicts over rights or race or gender or politics or philosophies or law and order. However, no matter how varied the issues, the intent of warmongering remains simply to divide in order to conquer. That battle principle is in Mark 3:24-25 “And if a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house is not able to stand.” (LITV) v.24-25, CEV “A nation whose people fight each other won’t last very long. And a family that fights won’t last long either.” Therefore, we must be discerning and stay aware that there is more to civil war than the chaos and violence and injustice and stupidity that are all too obvious. The civil war we are in is first and foremost a spiritual war. If we look below the surface commotion, we will find a spirit of division actively instigating and fueling each battle.
As the people of God assemble today may they begin to see what they have not seen before. May they see the Hand of Jehovah God moving and covering and directing them in ways that they have only imagined. May they see the gifts and anointings in each other and pray for each one to get free in the intentions of the Lord for their lives and their unity as the people of God redemptively advancing in spite of chaos. Isa.41:10,Amp—‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’
Abraham walked thru chaos on the way to the fulfillment of the word over his life and Joseph did, Moses did, Joshua did, David did. Our nation/world is walking through chaos on the way to an awakening. God speaks the progression of time and events and His authority and power bring them into being. That is why we must cling to God’s Word and get into alignment with it (speak it, pray it). He already has a plan and He is looking for those who will align/act on it. Isa.14:24 — “Just as I have intended so it has happened, and just as I have planned so it will stand.” Jehovah plans and declares tomorrow for our benefit, for His declarations free us from our limitations. He wants us to see beyond immediate circumstances. His declarations (what should be/shall be) clear the atmosphere for receiving His inevitable works of wonder.
As the people of God assemble today their hearts will receive the peace and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and will not give in to the chaos being created by the powers of darkness. Therefore, they will take hope and act upon the Word of God and live and walk in His righteous Kingdom order.
1Cor.14:33,TPT—“For God is the God of harmony, not confusion,[a] as is the pattern in all the churches of God’s holy believers.”
Jn.14:27,TPT—“I leave the gift of peace with you—my peace. Not the kind of fragile peace given by the world, but my perfect peace. Don’t yield to fear or be troubled in your hearts—instead, be courageous!”
Chaos represents utmost impossibility to man and covers him with hopeless despair where he is willing to lay down his beliefs and former commitments so that he may gain some semblance of comfort in spite of the dreaded disorder (“Chaos”: a disorderly, confused, condition or state). Throughout history there have been perpetrators of confusion who have, for the purpose of control, attempted to throw the populace into confusion in order to coerce them into turning over their freedom for relief. Many to the south and east of the USA have already done that and are praying for the USA to wake up and realize that we must speak out and act now to preserve our constitution and nation. Chaos and its bold, inclusive threats will not prevail if God’s people will humble themselves and pray (2Chron.7:14) and take a stand in spite of brash attempts of darkness to limit and/or remove freedoms. If God could create the worlds out of nothing, surely we can see and take tremendous hope of His creating righteous order out of the chaos of self-focused, power-hungry people.
There was a move from “chaos” to “inhabited” to fulfillment in the very beginning. When Yahweh starts a thing, that is the way He intends for it to go. When God Almighty starts something, He finishes it. When people are wearying over matters, over determined personalities, over the seemingly inevitable outcome of present circumstances, God’s power and His plans are not in the least damaged or thwarted. God can bring fullness of order out of chaos as easily as He can bring it out of slight disorder. Isa.45:18, ISV — “For this is what the LORD says, who created the heavens— He is God, and the One who formed the earth and made it, and He is the one who established it; HE DIDN’T CREATE IT FOR CHAOS, but formed it to be inhabited— ‘I am the LORD and there is no other.”

LARRY BURDEN — The Passover was also important to Jesus because a divine shift was coming to the disciples in their relationship with the Father. In John 15:15, Jesus told His disciples, “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you”. The terminology identified a relational shift from that of servant-master to one of son-father. Up to the night of the Passover, the relationship of the disciples to Jesus had been strictly business. However, after the Passover meal, that changed. In the new covenant, the disciples were no longer held by the Father as servants, but sons! That night was a divine appointment that had been in the making before the beginning of time. (LARRY BURDEN is speaking at Kingdom Congress 2021.

As the people of God assemble today may they allow their holy Creator, by His Spirit, to hover over the chaos of their minds and their doubts as He did in the beginning, so that He can overcome the chaos with His order. May they be enveloped in the wisdom, order and peace of Him Who creates all things good. Gen.1:2-4a, NASB — “And the earth was a formless and desolate emptiness, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good;”
The shift from where we are to the manifestation of the declared word will likely include, what appears to us to be, chaos. Yet, in spite of the appearances of the present, we must fully, faithfully and without fail contend for the word of the Lord. (Heb.10:23)
I was praying about our nation. I was listing the issues and the chaos and the unrighteousness. It was then that I saw a vision of a boxing ring. A man in a tux walked out into the center of the ring, took the microphone and announced the fight. He pointed to his left and said, “In this corner is anarchy, liberalism, atheism, existentialism, failing morals and failing values.” The crowd would gasp in horror each time the announcer would list another of the creature’s attributes. Each time he listed another name or description, the dark creature in that corner grew another inch and gained another 20 pounds until he menacingly filled that corner of the ring. Then I heard a voice cry out and ask, “But who will figure the Holy Spirit into the equation? Who will announce Him?” In the vision I jumped to my feet and cried aloud, “I will!” I climbed into the ring, took the microphone and said, “BUT in THIS corner is the One who, in the beginning when the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep, this One, the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters and chaos was changed into order!” The crowd jumped to their feet and began to shout until the roar was deafening. The whole atmosphere changed.
Don’t count out the Holy Spirit. Too many people are climbing into the ring of discussion and opinion, taking the mic and announcing the negative. Every time we announce the negative, we give it more size and weight in our thinking and the thinking of others. David overcame his enemies but reported this pattern while he was doing it: “From the rising of the sun to its setting The name of the Lord is to be praised.” (Ps113:3)
Factor In The Holy Spirit
Superheroes seem to have become the theme of many movies in recent time. Some of the most effective, powerful superheroes in those stories have come from other planets, other parts of the universe. They are adored, lauded, even feared for their superpowers. One movie which came out a few months ago depicted a man from earth who ended up on another planet and became the hero who defeated the super bad guy on that planet. The message seems clear: that people need a hero and expect that he can only come from a far away place, from a totally different environment. Looking around at present world circumstances, I think almost everyone would agree that someone must come to us from a completely different realm of existence and pierce the impossibilities of our world which we all seem helpless to overcome. The chaos must be confronted with superior contradiction. It won’t be done without the enablement of the Holy Spirit. (Jn16:7; Acts1:8) (This is the first of a series about the Holy Spirit by Marty Gabler)
