Redeeming the Times (Sons of Issachar Mandate) II
14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Comfort and convenience will not deliver the intention of God for your life. Handle your calling with weight and understanding.
Arise, it is time to take action. Activate what God has placed on the inside of you. As a church it is time to rise from a state of passiveness (sleep) to action. The whole of creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God, Heavens attention is on you. It is time for you to arise and shine. The sons of Issachar operated with prophetic accuracy and were competent in industry. It is time for you to equip and build up yourself. Suddenly, the attention will turn on you so you need to awake and be prepared!!!
When spiritual activation comes upon a man, it begins to reflect in the physical space. Such that things / places that previously rejected you and your gifting would begin to seek you out.
Awake and Christ shall give you light – because of your position in Christ, you would receive divine enablement. Your ability is not in your individuality but rather in the cooperate body that God has attached you to in HIS body. In your cooperate form in the body, you would be deployed. Everything you do is motivated from the understanding that you are part of the cooperate body.
Your preservation is in your operation as a body. Your light will flow when you are correctly aligned in the body.
When you think cooperate, you are bigger than yourself. Everything you do for this season, must be done for the Kingdom. Your intelligence, strength, resources, connections, wisdom, it is ALL for the sake of the Kingdom.
Awake from a selfish mind-set, God has raised you for a time as this.
Because you are positioned correctly, Christ shall give you light / revelation. Christ will make things visible, He would give you innovation and creativity in your calling and assignment. Your relevance is such that you are correctly aligned.
This is not a time to operate in distractions. You need to chase substance by walking in faith. Faith is the right response to the word of God. Walk circumspectly, do not come down to the level of your distractions. Revelation will not flow where there is strife / competition / domestic abuse / malice etc. Until there is a departure from strike, there is no revelation / growth / blessings. Beware that strife does not rub you of revelation. Do everything possible to maintain the peace of your home and relationships. Be wise and not as fools. To be wise means to be thoughtful, correct response.
Submission is strategic in strength.
When you are wise, you redeem time because the days are evil.
To redeem means to rescue something from loss / waste / source (origin). When you regain time in 2020, it visits the foundations of yester-years!
You redeem time in 2-dimensions: Chronos and Kairos:
To redeem time in chronos means to enjoy the grace to do more i.e. an anointing for speed. You can only do more because you are awake and alert to purpose. You receive revelation and understand that you walk purposefully. You respond to the word and you begin to receive the grace of God to do more.
Operating in Kairos means you cease an opportunity in the day of the opportunity.
You don’t win the race because you are swift but rather it is in your ability to cease time and chance swiftly. Wisdom is not what ensures that you earn but that wisdom is applied at the right time and by ceasing the opportunity presented to you.
The days are evil; a day is a season of productivity and labour. The days would be evil means that the night season was manipulated and agendas were set in motion. But believe this, you can redeem back the times. Spend your day in wisdom, apply yourself now. The key to buying back the time is to redeem the times and be circumspect in your dealings.
There is nothing to fear about the evil day, it is only another plot from the enemy. Awake, arise. Operate with prophetic insight and walk circumspectly.
19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.
