You Haven’t Seen Everything

Sometime back we were battling with considerable financial and physical matters. Every solution I could think of was blocked and I couldn’t see any resolve, even on the horizon. Through the course of those days it seemed that a sense of panic would creep up in my gut. Honestly, I had come to the conclusion that we were in a pit that was hopeless.

After wrestling with this insurmountable dilemma for about two weeks, and arriving at certain negative conclusions (trying to choke back panic and hopelessness), I dreamed that I was standing in a huge, wide-open warehouse. I noticed a man walking toward me. When he got right in front of me he stopped and looked me right in the eye. He raised his hand, pointed at me and, matter-of-factly said, “You haven’t seen everything.” Then I woke up.

My foregone conclusions had me convinced that I had exhausted all possibilities because I felt I had seen everything (in all my musings and mental exercises) that might be brought to bear on the difficulties, and those things just simply were not available to us as a solution.

A trembling began down deep inside as I realized that the word in the dream was absolutely correct. I had not seen everything. Within 72 hours the whole thing turned around! Please understand that you have not seen everything. Not only have you not seen everything, but there are things that have not yet been formed in your behalf. (Compare Job 26:12-14; Isa.48:6-7; 1Cor.2:9) The cloud “the size of a man’s hand” did not begin to form until Elijah’s servant walked down to the sea and looked the seventh time (1K.18:44). Because the Kingdom is advancing and bringing with it facilitation for purpose “some of the best days of your life haven’t happened yet.” The Kingdom is advancing and, as you are in the Kingdom, it is advancing you with it.


Keep Looking

Not only have you not seen everything, but there are things that have not yet been formed in your behalf.  You can’t see them because they have not yet been formed. You haven’t seen what God is doing behind the veil that fear and doubt and obstacles have woven in your life. Consider the “cloud the size of a man’s hand” (1K.18:44) that God formed for Elijah. The servant had to go and look seven times in order to see what he had not yet seen the first six times. Even when the servant saw the little cloud, it was nothing compared to what it soon would be. Be careful to not stop looking for God’s intervention just because you have not seen something that looks like what your mind can imagine (1Cor.2:9).

Intent and Purpose

When we do see a demonstration of the Power of the Kingdom of God, we need to train ourselves to hold steady. The point is to know God’s intent and purpose for the visit. The purpose of God for the disciples was evidently for them to get a realization of unlimited Power, a foretaste of the Power of sons interacting with the spirit realm. God’s intent in the actual conversation between Jesus and the prophets on the Mount of Transfiguration was not revealed for us, but the interaction was an impacting experience. (Fifth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)

Steady Not to Distract

We can take an equipping insight from the Transfiguration event (Mk.9) and reaction.  When we do see a demonstration of the Power of the Kingdom of God, we need to train ourselves to hold steady through the shock and awe so as not to blurt out unnecessary things to distract or interrupt.  We can train ourselves to wait to hear and perceive God’s intention for the event, as the disciples did in the next moment.  A cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is My beloved Son, listen to Him!” All at once they looked around and saw no one with them anymore except JESUS alone.  Jesus alone and His agenda are ALWAYS the base line, the pivot or the point of Kingdom power; and we hold steady until we hear and understand His agenda.  (The fourth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)

Mouth Hanging Open

Peter then said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three tabernacles, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”  The next verse says that Peter blurted this out without thinking, simply because they were all so stunned by what they were seeing.  I don’t blame Peter for that outburst.  Those three disciples were experiencing Kingdom Power that broke barriers in logic, time and history.  And, by the way, HOW would the disciples  have recognized Moses & Elijah?  There were no history books with photos, no name-tags . . . Perhaps Jesus introduced them . . . and can you picture that? How would you be able to look eye-to-eye with Moses and smile or nod? Or how would you shake Elijah’s hand without your legs falling off? Maybe they weren’t introduced, but they knew them because they were intently eavesdropping, while frozen in a dead stare with their mouths hanging open!  (The third excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)

DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY SYMPOSIUM

Power of the Kingdom

Let’s find insight in one of Jesus’ examples of the Power of the Kingdom in Mark 9.  In verse 1, Jesus said: “Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.”  In Mar 9:2, six days later, three of them did see it. Jesus took Peter, James, and John and led them up a high mountain.  His appearance changed from the inside out, right before their eyes, and His garments became radiant laser-white, and Elijah and Moses showed up to talk with Jesus.  Right before their eyes, Jesus was glowing and was transfigured beyond anything humanly possible.  Beyond that, He was suddenly in the company of two prophets from Old Testament history, so the disciples definitely got an impression, realization and a foretaste of POWER!  (The second excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)
