Prayer is a great avenue for moving what is in heaven into earth. In a voice of command, the Lord God spoke to Jeremiah and required that he “call unto” Him (Jer.33:3). Calling unto God has a purpose. It was not a religious exercise that God wanted to observe Jeremiah busy with. God said, “Call unto me AND I will answer.” It would be in agreement with what God fully intended to do in the earth. God must agree with Himself and with His Word, His will, His plan. God is not without purpose, not without a plan; but there are times when God has been without someone to stand in the gap calling upon Him to move power and authority from heaven into the earth. Eze 22:30 “I searched for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one. Ezekiel does not say that a large company is required but, in v.30, ONE will do. Lk 18:1 ALSO [Jesus] told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not to turn coward (faint, lose heart, and give up). (Amp) 1Ti 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. Calling unto God in alignment with His plan and purpose moves power and restoration into earth. (See Jer.33:6-14) (Fourth excerpt from Marty’s article “From Heaven to Earth”)
In spite of the angle of descent of morals and values, in spite of what the world money market looks like, in spite of what the state of the union looks like, we stand on the brink of a destiny that our forefathers never imagined (Jer.33:3)—But it will require moving from being waiters and observers to acting. It will require shifting, modifications, transitions and intense exertion: the “violent” action of Matt.11:12 which means “intense exertion.” It is not violent in the sense of doing persons harm but in the sense of putting forth effort (i.e., intense exertion) in opposition to things that oppose purpose. We must oppose darkness like opposing a rattlesnake trying to crawl up in our bed. We must do it for our King and for a generation.
The coming of a new year finds many people hoping for a new era, a new season. Many have hopes and dreams that a new season will hold something fresh and fulfilling. There is a God-something in us that urges us to reach beyond what we have experienced and strive for more than we have known. We so desire to eagerly respond to the “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” invitation of Jer.33:3. We want to see and experience the “never seen” and “never known” which is beyond our own capacity so that we may know resolve and victories and fulfillment that have, heretofore, been beyond our reach.

Let’s not limit calling on God for great and mighty answers to things we need only. If He says I’ll “show you great and mighty things” why in the world would we not call on Him on a daily basis to see what awesomeness He has in store for the here and now? The requirement for asking such things daily is to be in a dominion/heaven-on-earth state rather than a victimized one. A victimized state of mind keeps us stuck on “me, my, me”. The way out of victimhood is in truth because it has a tendency to set you free IF you know it by meditating on and living it (John 8:32). This is one of the main issues we face today because we have too much information, whether it be truth or a lie, at our fingertips every moment of every day. Easy access has become the demoralizer of an entitled culture. Yes, this applies to Christians as well. (Fourth excerpt from Melissa Gabler’s article “Call on Him”.)

Let’s look at “Call to me and I will answer you” through a modern American paradigm: I call on the Lord and He will answer – I will tell Him what I need and He will give it to me because He is a loving God. You know, kind of like curbside grocery delivery. I took the time to get my list together and I took the time to call about this list. Now, it’s on Him to deliver! I’m afraid we North Americans operate out of an entitled mindset not only in our relationship with earthlings, but also in our relationship with God. If I call on Him then ________ (insert pre-determined answer here). The problem with an entitled relationship with God is where the entitlement is rooted. If it is rooted in the Spirit, according to the covenant, then it will put you in a posture of dominion. If, however, it is rooted in the soul then it will hold you in a victimized defensive posture. The soul will keep you chained out of reach of God’s original intent which is indeed dominion. Or said another way, the soul will keep you from being heaven on earth.

During a time of ministry at a recent meeting a revered Prophet told me, “Read Jeremiah 33:3 everyday and watch what happens.” It’s certainly not an unfamiliar passage, but perhaps one that is easily forgotten in the midst of all the hustle, bustle and chaos. So, here you go (in 3 versions for impact):
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jer. 33:3 KJV
“Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.” Jer. 33:3 AMP
“Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.” Jer. 33:3 MSG. (First excerpt from Melissa Gabler’s article “Call on Him”.)
2018 Declaration #3—WE WILL KEEP OUR EYES WIDE OPEN FOR WHAT THE LORD HAS TO SHOW US—Kids Version: Look! Jesus has something to show us!—We will keep our eyes wide open to see what the Lord is wanting to show us 1) concerning His truths, 2) concerning situations that are working against us, 3) concerning conniving people, 4) concerning opportunities, 5) concerning how we can impact lives of others, 6) concerning how we can pray and declare over our nation and its leaders, 7) concerning current world events, e.g., when we hear about missiles in N Korea, pray for the propulsion system to fail, guidance system to fail.
“Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).” (Jer.33:3, AMPC)
In spite of the angle of descent of morals and values, in spite of what the state of the union looks like, we stand on the brink of a destiny that our forefathers never imagined (Jer.33:3)—But it will require moving from being observers to acting, require shifting and transition: it’s the “violent” action of Matt.11:12 which means “intense exertion.” It is not violent in the sense of doing persons harm but in the sense of putting forth “intense exertion” in opposition to things that oppose God’s purpose. We must oppose darkness like opposing a rattlesnake trying to crawl up in our bed. We must do it for the King of Kings and for a generation. We are praying you discover daily that your intense exertion is gaining ground against darkness.

“BID me COME,” is a longing to experience the Kingdom of God. “BID me COME,” is a longing to demonstrate the Authority of God so that my life is more than typical, average Christianity. It is a longing from the heart of our Father to provoke generations to come to reach their potential in Christ. The only way we will leave a weak, uninspiring heritage is if we ignore that cry of “BID me COME” within us. I know I am not a young thing to tackle such a quest, but I also know that even time and age have to bow to the purposes of God. The empowering truth is that “BID me COME” trumps age. We are never too old or too young to take ground for His purposes.

Astonishingly, the “which you do not know” (Jer.33:3) part is not with reference to anything that has been kept secret or that has not existed here-to-fore. This is not the first time Jeremiah has heard of Jehovah’s desire to deliver and restore Israel. “Which you do not know” is, in fact, something Jeremiah does not now know because it is now covered up and overwhelmed with present circumstances and everyone’s conclusions. The sounds of destruction, conversation of people in dismay and the obvious presence of the enemy’s army are so loudly proclaiming destruction that Jeremiah has forgotten what he once knew and is, therefore, unable to proclaim it, let alone act on it. The desire of Jehovah has been displaced with other considerations and conclusions. But even before there is one ounce or semblance of relief, Jeremiah is required to vocally come into agreement with that which God is determined to grant, no matter appearances or opinions.

The word “call” can be defined and studies made of its finer nuances. But what we need to see in this context is what the Deliverer of Israel wants to get across to them in the moment of duress. “Call” in this instance is: “Jeremiah, pray for that which your God has determined to grant.” I don’t think it has to do with volume of voice or the ounces of tears shed. It has to do with knowing and getting into agreement with what God is determined to do in the families of Israel, in the nation of Israel. This is what God intended to do in Israel and what He intends to do in our nation: ‘Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them; and I will reveal to them an abundance of peace and truth. 7 ‘I will restore the fortunes of Judah and the fortunes of Israel and will rebuild them as they were at first. 8 ‘I will cleanse them from all their iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will pardon all their iniquities by which they have sinned against Me and by which they have transgressed against Me. 9 ‘It will be to Me a name of joy, praise and glory before all the nations of the earth which will hear of all the good that I do for them, and they will fear and tremble because of all the good and all the peace that I make for it.’ (Jer.33:6-9, NASB)

To focus on the redemptive work of Christ means more than considering His death on the cross. We must also grasp the far-reaching results, the fullness of what He bought back for mankind. Religion has emphasized the trauma, sentiment has stalled in drama, but we dare not ignore the bridge Jesus built back to God’s original intent. That is how God’s glory will fill the whole earth ( Psa 72:19), sons will live out His original intent in their lifetime—all over the earth.

If there is a formula anywhere in the Bible, here is one: Jer 33:3 ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’ It appears that Israel, at this point, has nothing to look forward to but annihilation. But God gives Jeremiah the solution: call unto me. The formula seems to be: (1) call and (2) I will tell you great and mighty things which you do not know. We really do need to know what we do not know, so we really do need to call. What is not known at this point in time will stop the destruction when it does become known.

Throughout the history of warfare it has been noted that when an attacker sees his enemy indicating any degree of retreat, it renews his vigor and purpose in the battle, pumping up even more determination to destroy. It’s like a boxer in a ring when he has his opponent at a disadvantage. Both boxers are weary from the physical exertion of the fight but when one sees the other stagger, he seems to get a renewed sense of vigor and begins punching rapidly with all his might hoping that this is the point at which his opponent falls. An offensive posture and offensive action keep the enemy at bay. Recovery from the stagger is a must, not using it as an excuse. I once heard a Navy Seal say that one of their primary doctrines of warfare is that you can only be defeated if you die or if you give up.

As God gives His mandate to Jeremiah, His mouthpiece to the people, missiles are being launched from siege machines. The pounding, hammering sounds of destruction are in the air. The people seem to have a mentality for retreat and survival in the present, not a mentality for the future and future generations. There is no mentality for gain, increase or growth but rather for getting relief from the present situation whatever price has to be paid. While they are taking structures apart to put up defenses for the present, the coming generation is surely wondering what will remain for their future and adopting attitudes that are nonproductive for future hope. There is no attempt to actually stop destruction, just attempts to try and fend off some of it.

When God spoke to Jeremiah, conditions were not escalating; they were already in full swing. Jerusalem was under attack. It was not hit and run, it was a siege. To say that Jerusalem was under siege was like saying the nation of Israel was under siege. A siege was set up with intent to stay until defeat and destruction of the enemy was complete. The Chaldeans were destroying the outer perimeter of Jerusalem and those whose houses were being destroyed on the outer perimeter were falling back to the inner city. In the inner city, they were tearing apart their houses to build defenses. The Chaldeans had set up siege machines and battering rams. The enemy was so intent on destroying Jerusalem that they had begun using hammers and axes on the houses in order to tear them completely down and to render them completely useless. The word “house” here in Jer.33:4 refers to a literal house, but also to generations, families. The intent and result was that the present generation was being devastated and disheartened so that future generations would only have one choice: servitude.

You, O Mighty God, are not subject to political schemes, monetary declines or medical limitations. You are above all those limited strictures. Father, by your awesome Spirit, speak into our lives where we have forgotten your desires and purposes and have concluded, like Abraham in Gen.15:3, that we will not have an heir, and certain things will be and other things will not be. Holy Spirit, come and breathe upon the Word of God in our hearts that we may call upon Him so that He may show us great and mighty things. Come and witness to us today what shall be and what you shall grant by your power from your throne. We must know what we do not now know that the glory may be to Your Name.
“Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).” (Jer.33:3, Amp)
