Writing the Vision October 2017
Minister: Rev. Kayode Oyegoke
Text: Isaiah 52:7
In a visitation of the Lord with Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin many years ago, the Lord taught him that the major hallmark of a prophet is his ability to preach and teach the word of God. Anyone who cannot preach or teach the word of God is not a prophet. The prophet of the New testament will preach and teach Christ. When the world begins to see the emergence of the kinds of ministers prophesied about in Isaiah 52:7, it should know it is about coming to an end. Their feet are beautiful because they have perfected walk and are able to carry the gospel till the end. Any feet that can stand on Zion becomes beautiful. Peace preceded beauty. What beautifies your feet is your having seen the beauty of the Lord.
When the LORD shines at salvation, fear is dispelled (Psalm 27:1). Zion is the place where He shines from and where the soul can say, “The lord is my helper. I will not fear what man can do unto me”. The beauty of the Lord is found in His temple (Psalm 27:4-5). This is when we can worship God in the beauty of His holiness. The night is the holy place while the dew of the morning speaks of the most holy place. The dew of youth speaks also of strength that never ends (Psalm 110:3). The highest and most hidden place in the tabernacle of God is the womb of the morning. This is where the cherubim cry from.
It takes a son of the morning, who is also a product of beauty of holiness, to stand on Zion. it was of this sort that Lucifer was made (Isaiah 14:12). The Bible says in creation in Genesis, the evening preceded the morning on each of the days (Genesis 1:5,8,13,19,23,31). This implies that the light of the Day is two- the morning and evening lights. Trees are older than the sun and other heavenly bodies. That man, who was the last of God’s creation was asked to rule them all lends credence to what Jesus said about the first being the last.
The instruction God gave to Adam signifies that man’s existence has been tied to trees. It was after man had fallen and become flesh that man was allowed to devour flesh (Genesis 9:3-4). Trees are immovable; men move to eat from them. Lower creation express life by moving around but trees express life by growing up-wards. Trees express God and carries the characteristics of dominion that God is painting. No tree ever grows horizontally or perpendicularly. God’s emphasis to us about growing up, is about us becoming trees.
The most intelligent of God’s creature is the most susceptible to a fall, e.g. the serpent (Genesis 3:1). Trees are rooted, grounded and established because their roots are not seen. This is an instruction to us to embrace works only God sees. When your feet are seen by men, you will soon go astray. When relating with God, you must resolve to be a fool. Soil is a type of flesh and there are rocky soils/flesh. You must grow downwards to grow upwards, having trapped the life that is God’s alone. When trees fully express their life, they block wells and break rocks because what sustains them is not gotten on the surface.
We must never stop digging our roots into the depth of God till we arrive at the place where all strife [generated by the flesh] ends. Things are “Good” at the beginning and “Full/Complete” at the end. Your depth, as a believer, determines how tall you will go. The good tiding that Isaiah prophesied about in Isaiah 52:7 is what Paul called “the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:2). Life and Peace is the reward of minding the things of the Spirit (Romans 8:6). Life, which is Good signifies Righteousness, which also births Peace.
What is Good is Faith. Being spiritual is not being spooky; it is walking by faith. To be in faith is higher than to see visions. Greater is the man who walks by faith than he who sees visions. It does not matter how many encounters you have had, true work is done when body and soul are together. No man will be rewarded before the Lord for the work done outside his body; He will reward us based on what we did in our bodies. The culturing of our souls and bodies by the law of life in our spirits is our true vocation.
Unknown tongue is different from another tongue, the tongues of men and angels. When men are moving into the Perfect (1 Corinthians 13:10), God opens them into unknown realms. Unknown tongues discuss unknown things to unlock the mysteries of God. we read in Daniel how God ended the Babylonian empire by speaking an unknown tongue to them (Daniel 5:25). Real prophecy is an interpretation of what God is saying. We are to follow after “charity”, which is the love of the brethren that faith has purified the heart to obey (1 Corinthians 13). If you reject the faith of the Son of God, you will fall short of arriving at charity.
Unfortunately now, the church feels inferior the world because she does not know that her God reigns. Those who will bring this tiding to her are those who bring two tidings to her. The first tiding is the good tidings, which publishes “Peace” while the second tiding is the good/glad tidings of good, which publishes “Salvation”. These messengers will not stop till Zion has become saved. The epistle of Hebrews contains the Good tidings of Good, which pertains unto salvation. This is why it is written therein, “we are not of them that draw back unto perdition but of them that believe to the saving of the soul” (Hebrews 10:39). Men who faint cannot continue in the scriptures.
Arriving at the saving of the soul is arriving where the soul is given power not to turn back to perdition. Our pursuit of salvation does not permit us drawing back; let alone going back. What dispenses salvation is mercy, which is the act of God’s sovereign will to immune a soul eternally so it will never turn. Evil spirits are not afraid of your demonstration of healing gifts; they become agitated when the soul begins to obtain salvation.
When you see the names that evil spirits bear, you will find that nothing there answers to the gifts of the Spirit. They are all statures, which are framed by laws (Ephesians 6:12). The only way to overcome them is to grow above them. The laws that framed them is what constitutes their message/their tidings. Overcoming satan is overcoming his laws. Evil tidings, which are laws of sin and death, are propelled by evil spirits.
To preach the gospel of Peace is to bring the Good/Glad tidings that publishes Peace. It is important to know that after every layer of creation that God finished in Genesis 1, God said it was good. This Goodness kept advancing till it became “very good” (Genesis 1:31). Very good is perfection. God is making us good by these words. When publishing salvation, you make people glad. This means that there are two gospel- the Gospel of Peace and the Gospel of Gladness. It was this Gospel of peace that the Lord made reference to in the beatitudes (Matthew 5).
The law that God keeps within beings is what determines what names that are called. Though these angels are mighty in strength, hearkening to His commandments, God did not trust any of them enough to put them on the throne. This is because none of them has what it takes to embody the tidings that will make them compatible with the throne. Jesus was anointed with the oil of gladness above His fellows means He was anointed with the oil of salvation (Hebrews 1:8-9).
It is possible to love Jesus and hate Christ; the former is the outer shell of the latter. Whoever loves the oil of gladness must love righteousness. The good that publishes salvation is that which Jesus administers in His high priestly office (Hebrews 9:11). This oil of gladness is what Jesus was anointed with (Psalm 45:7-8). No humanity can survive the realm of God. Let whoever walk with God take heed for one day he will be taken and will be no more (Genesis 5:24). The ivory palaces that David prophesied about in Psalm 45 are palaces of God and gods.
God is more dangerous than Death and the Grave; He is also a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29) who seeks to consume His own, swallowing death up in victory in the process. Angels are not anointed with Gladness but the God that Christ has become. When a believer gets anointed with the oil of gladness, he has escaped dying and has landed well. The anointing of Jesus teaches the substances of the order of the Godhead. Whoever refuses these things will not be a partaker of the realm of God.
Swords from the two gospels, which are substances of Deity, will take out and kill sin and desires of the flesh within us. These things will remove wrong tendencies, hiding under our cloaks of righteousness, within us. When this is done, our waters shall be clean, crystal clear and void of any death!
