The End From the Beginning

“Remember the former things long past, for I am God, and there is no other; {I am} God, and there is no one like me, 10 Declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things which have not been done, saying, ‘My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good pleasure’; (Isa 46:9-10, NAS) Jehovah God speaks the end, or completion of a thing, while standing at the beginning. After speaking the end, Almighty God must begin looking for some folks who will stay the course so that that particular end may be realized. Who will embrace God’s Word, thereby, anticipating and embracing God’s possibilities in tomorrow?  (The seventh excerpt from Marty’s article “Anticipation Nation”)

Jehovah As Witness

MountainThe result of “call unto me” is “I will answer you.” That word “answer” means “to respond as a witness.” (Brown-Driver-Briggs) God is not coming to the witness stand to say, “Well, back in 600 B.C. ‘this’ happened and so-and-so did ’that’.”  “But He is a witness to what is going to happen because He is going to bring it about.  From the very beginning telling you what the ending will be, All along letting you in on what is going to happen, Assuring you, ‘I’m in this for the long haul, I’ll do exactly what I set out to do’.” (Isa 46:10, MSG) Jehovah is the kind of witness who does not come and say what He saw but what He sees. He declares the end of a thing before it ever gets started. He is not sitting around talking about what happened a year ago, He is already speaking of that which is in the coming year and He is requiring agreement with it.

The USA, Israel and God’s Upholding Word

The USA, Israel and God’s Upholding Word
When people creatively put something together, we are hoping that it will stay together long enough for us or someone else to get some amount of use out of it. But when the Lord our God creates something, He is not simply hoping it will stay together for a little while; He has a plan before He creates it (Isa46:10) and He upholds it by the Word of His power (Heb1:3). We see the chaos in our operative 5 dimensions and tend to focus on it and tend to believe that things will go the way of the deterioration processes within our 5 dimensions. However, our Lord is above those dimensions and comes into those dimensions from His limitless dimensions. He is indeed upon His throne but the Word of His power is already in every dimension. God’s physical sign of His faithfulness upon earth He calls “Jacob” (Isa43:1). That is the word most often used in the Bible when emphasizing the physical lineage of Israel. Israel will always have a physical lineage and will be preserved by the power of Jehovah’s Word that was present when He created “Jacob.” Take hope, people of God. The people of God, redeemed by the blood of Jesus, are being upheld by the Word of His power and that includes a way to overcome chaos which works against our Lord’s purposes. We declare the faithfulness of Jehovah guard the nation of Israel and guard our embassies around the world. The Lord God is not without initiative or resource. It was all in place before He created “Jacob” or this nation, and He is able to create something never seen before to bring His upholding Word to pass (Isa48:6-7).
“But now, thus says the Lord your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, ‘Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine!” (Isa43:1)

Increase Of Signs And Wonders


Increase Of Signs And Wonders (Kathy Gabler)
Just by being born again, we’re already positioned for Kingdom thinking.  In John 3:5,  Jesus said being born of water and [of] the Spirit is the way to enter into the Kingdom of God. When you heard the call to be born again, was the emphasis on entering the Kingdom so you could participate in God’s will being done on earth as in heaven, or was the emphasis on escaping hell?  We are not on earth just to get saved, stay saved and go to heaven.  Your salvation is much more awesome.  It is empowerment for life!  You are on earth with a purpose.  You are part of what God is doing in the history of the world, history that has already been written, because God knows the end before the beginning, Isa 46:10. We are here to demonstrate a higher government to a generation.  Isaiah 9:7 says there will be no end to the increase of His Government and Peace.  Therefore, there will be no end to the increase of signs and wonders as His government manifests in powerful contradiction over conditions of darkness.
