Agnes The Lord Will Joy Over Thee 9-17-2000 Zeph. 3:17
“17 The LORD thy God in the midst of thee [is] mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”
Did you ever hear that before? Some of you might have. I didn’t realize myself that God could do that. But I know that He does if we are tuned to Him. This is the day when the Lord said “I am going to move in the nations and no man is going to stop me.” The very things He’s doing now is shaking all over the world. There no just made by man, but God is sending judgment all over the world today. Why is He doing it? He is doing it because He wants us to realize that He is God and that no nation is going to say we don’t want God. Leaders of nations decided we are going to shut the door and we will not have God or His anointed. God laughed at them. We’ve been taught that we get saved and we go to heaven. That’s not true. We’re saved to go to the nations to take the gospel of the kingdom to the nations of the world. Jesus said Father I would like to take them with me, but as you have sent me into the world so send I them into the world. He is still choosing those who will let Him train them so they can go into the world. It doesn’t mean that we can become a part of that world, but we go in there to represent to show forth the kingdom of God and the power of His kingdom. So far our presentation of it to the world has been pretty bad. Because we have only presented our denominations. We’ve only presented man’s side of it. What is God’s side? What is it that God would deem for the nations? He would prove Himself mighty. He has His love, provision and glory. He can’t share His provision or glory unless we permit Him to fill us with His love. Most of the Christians I know don’t know what that is. They don’t know what God’s love is. They only know human love that spits and spats at one another. Gets offended with one another. And they can’t live with one another. God’s love brings us into a realm of forgiveness. Into a realm where we’re not affected by what other people say and do. It’s up to us to let Him rejoice over us. What are we going to do? The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty. He wants to show us how mighty He is. But He can only do it if we let Him fill us with His love. Why? We hinder Him with our flesh and our feelings. We prevent Him from filling us with His love. He is still saying to us the Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty. He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy. Do you feel the Lord rejoicing over you with joy?
He showed me something so mighty in one verse alone. He created us to be His love and His rest. He is our love and our rest. He can’t rest unless we rest in Him. He made us to be His love but He can’t rest in His love unless we rest in His love. Is this foolishness? The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty. He didn’t make us as we are today. He made us perfect in the garden of Eden. What happened to us? Man wanted to be independent and the enemy too him and made him more dependent upon the powers of darkness than on God. The Lord is saying today, let not your hands be slack for the Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty. God is shaking this earth right now with earthquakes, storms, floods. He shaking the whole world to let them know He has charge of the heavens and the earth. We need to realize that in this hour we want to know His love. It solves all our problems. The love of God is over us and through us. It solves all problems. It solves your flesh and the devil. It solves your provision. For His glory comes with His love, provision. And all three flow together if we allow Him to take His place in us as our love and our rest. He pleaded with the children of Israel for centuries. Enter into my rest and they didn’t. He said I want to teach you my commandments and ways. They wouldn’t. But He said they must be a people who will enter into my rest. We don’t have to go over the ocean or into the heavens. We don’t have to go anywhere else to find His rest. He has that rest for us. We need to know that God loves us. He’s in the midst of us and He is mighty. He transforms our lives and He is the one that loves us and it’s His rest in us. Do we know it? If we receive it we know it. If we receive it we don’t have problems on the inside. He helps cope with the problems on the outside. If we allow Him to be the love of our life. He made us perfect in the beginning. We had His love and we had His rest. When man sinned we forfeited this. But Jesus died to give it back to us. He’s beginning to move across this earth and the heavens to take back that which He has given and the devil had taken away. He’s taking it back so we need to let Him fill with His love and peace and joy. Remember He wants to rejoice over us with joy. Do we really know how excited God is? He will rest in His love. When He can rejoice over us with joy He will rest in His love. He will joy over thee with singing.
When I first read this I said God I didn’t realize you were singing to me. You think about the Lord singing to us. Sometimes I feel Him in such a way that it almost takes your breath away. The awesomeness of His presence. The peace that He gives. The love that He gives that reaches out to humanity. The Bible says the joy of the Lord is our strength. Then why are we weak? You need to remember this scripture. The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty. He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy. He will rest in His love. He will joy over thee with singing. Hark the herald angels sing. When Jesus came to the earth Hark the herald sang. We can hear them and see them. We really walk in this place of His rest and His love. What do we have to do to enter into His love and rest? We have to acknowledge that the Lord our God in the midst of thee is mighty. We have to realize He can take our life and turn it around upside down and fill us with His love and glory. Sometimes I look at the faces and I wonder how much we have received of the word of God. How much do we take into ourselves and realize that God is speaking to us. The children of Israel said we want our own way. We don’t want your rest so they went into bondage and slavery. They went into nation after nation. Suffered because they refused His rest. God wanted to be their love, they refused it. They said you can send this Moses, but God you stay away from us. This is what we are doing. We’re pushing God away from us. When He is telling us the Lord thy God is mighty. We could see this place turned upside down in a short time if everyone of us decided we’re going to rest in His love, rest in Him. We already have the provision. We already have His glory. Don’t get too close to Him you might feel it. God is saying now He is ready to move in the midst of us with His love, provision and glory. We already have His provision. God has given it because we have rested in His love. One thing I know of this love my mind it’s filled with God’s love. God put it there. So I can minister to all of you. I know that God wants the same thing for each of us. To enter into this place in Him where He can joy over us and sing to us. Something mighty would happen if we give praise to Him. The devil would flee. The people who don’t want God wouldn’t have a thing to do with you. They would run from you. You don’t have the devil after you if you enter into His rest and His love. Then He’s going to joy over us with singing. Rejoice over us with joy.
We sit in this building this morning, we come to meet the Lord to be in His presence. Where is our mind? What are we thinking? What are our motivations today? Are we thinking about everything but the Lord? Are we worrying about things we can’t help? Or are we here to rest in His love. Are we here to say Lord give me your rest, your love. When He has finished training us then He will send us wherever He wants us to go. We need to love people, don’t? We are isolated but everyone that lives close by you are here this morning. We welcome you. In His love, His peace. You are part of our family. One thing I say to you enter in the Lord is here to change our lives. He’s here to let us know how much He loves us if we will only let Him love us. He won’t love us if we’re filled with garbage will He? We have to clean our house. Monday He gave me a vision, I saw this mansion. It was filthy. The walls were black. There were cobwebs and there was garbage all over the floor. The place was terrible. The Lord said this was you when I bought you. Now He said “I’m going to clean you up and clean your house” and when He finished it was beautiful. Everything was real. It was crystal, silver and gold and perfect. There was a fountain a rainbow of the spray the promise of God. I said thank you Lord. He has to clean us up. Don’t think you can come to Him and still play around with the world. You can’t do it. You’re not going to have His love, His peace. He loves you enough to bring you out of the garbage not to wallow in it. Surrender all to Him so He can fill us with His rest and His peace. It isn’t so much as what we say as how we live. It’s how we live that counts for Him. He said rest in His love and let His love rest in us. Malachi 3:16 “Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. 17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. 18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.” Chapter 4:1 “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do [this], saith the LORD of hosts.” There is a reckoning day. But unto them that fear His name. Who’s going to take the Son of righteousness to the nations? The nations have to know. They that are filled with His love, His rest, His provision and His glory will be taken by Jesus Himself to the nations. He shall declare to the nations that He is God. That He created the world and everyone in it. It’s coming. But first the wicked has to be dealt with. These leaders all over the world that don’t care a thing about a human being but to do what they want to do. The destruction of the world is terrible. God wants to redeem everyone who will come to Him. If we have not gone to tell them about the Lord, then we need to get ready to go. God is now calling forth a people prepared to train.
You’re not at Sommer Haven just to be at Sommer Haven. You’re here because God placed you here. You’re here because God has a plan for your life. His plan is to fill you with His love and rest, peace and joy while you take it to the nations. He takes you to the nation. You don’t take Him. He’s in charge He’s the one that’s going to declare. He is the Lord and there is none other. We can go with great rest and love. We have the blessings of the Lord that He rejoices over us with joy and singing. You need to get out of the mulligrubs. We need to get up where we can hear what the Lord is saying. So we can know that He is declaring His word to us. We can stay in our worry and anxiety and wear ourselves down. Where will we end up? We will end up with the wicked. I just read to you what’s go to happen to the wicked. But unto them that fear His name shall the Son of righteousness arise with healing in His wings. The healing of the nations. If we’re not going there we are Baptist we are so and so. No we’re going representing His rest, love, peace, joy, righteousness, holiness. Going in His love provision and glory. I believe as God is sending out His people in these nations He’s going to send them to every provision to help the people. Brother Shaker should be here in a few days. I want you all to hear what He has to hear what God has to say how God has moved in Orica, India and what God is doing among the hearts of the people. Because His love, His light is going to bring forth His peace and His love to the nations. If we don’t have it we can’t give it. The Lord is calling us to let Him sing over us with joy. Let Him rest in His love in us. I don’t know how I can place it more emphatically to you this morning. He needs us filled with His rest and love so that He can give us His bountiful provision and glory to everyone we come in contact with. Everyone everywhere that will accept His love and glory. This is a new dimension, a new hour, and millennium. Don’t look back at the old, it’s past. Today He’s offering you His rest, love, provision and glory. We need to open our arms unto Him and say come Lord Jesus. Take from us the things that hinder us. The anxieties the fears we have and worries. Give it to Him so He can give you His rest and His love. He loves us but He wants to give us His love. He wants that same love that He has for us. That same love in us that we can reach out to the people in His love and rest. It’s ours if we’re willing to draw nigh to Him and let Him be our rest and love that we may know him in an intimate way more than any one on earth to know Him in love and His rest, peace, joy. He wants to sing to us. But He can only sing to us as we enter into His rest and His love. Then He can rest. But He can rest until He brings the people of this world to know Him. I was flying over China and I could feel the heart of the Father. And the burden that He had for all these souls throughout all of Asia and all over the world. There were billions of them who didn’t know Him. He’s crying out to the nations. He’s crying out to pull down the leaders of nations that said God can’t come in and His anointed can’t come in. He said I’m going in it’s mine I’m going to bring to me. It’s my Son who died for them and it’s His love for them. And Father’s love that going to draw them unto them. But we have to be filled with His love and rest. As we go, we go with His love, His joy. We go rejoicing. The billions that don’t know Him His heart is crying for them to know Him. Who have not had the privilege because the leaders have refused to let them know God. It doesn’t matter now whether they like it or not. Because it’s God’s time to prepare us to be in our place in His rest and in His love, so that Jesus might be able to speak through us where ever He sends us. We need to get away from the doctrines of men. We need to get away to the gospel of Jesus Christ. We need to get to the kingdom of God that is within us. And take this kingdom where Christ dwells. Christ will take us to the nations. Don’t try to go without Him. Don’t think your going to do it. You will do nothing but propagate and that won’t do any good. The only way it’s going to be any good is when we rest in His love and we let Him take us. He’s the speaker, we’re not the speaker that rest in His love. God is the one. He’s going to rise up in a fury. He’s going to rise in a strong storm that’s going to break through the world. He is declaring everything I created I’m taking back and it’s mine. That means every one of us. We need to get rid of our garbage and things we’re hanging onto. Let the Lord fill us with His rest and love so He can sing to us. So He can rejoice with us. God is moving mightily. He’s moving things out of the way. He’s removing the powers of Satan from our lives. He’s removing the fears and anxieties as we rest in His love. We can’t do it. Only Christ in us in His rest and love can bring it to pass. This is His purpose for the whole world to take His rest and His love to the nations. With His provisions and glory. But He needs us who have been trained by Him in His rest. Love and peace, joy so He can sing to us as we go in Ezekiel’s Wheel. This is not an ordinary message. This is right from the heart of God. He wants you to know how much He loves you. But He requires you to love Him. Is it so bad His requirements? Is it so bad that we wrestle around with our drugs, alcohol and impure living. When what He wants to give is the pure. He wants to give us His love and rest. I think we ought to fall on our faces before Almighty God and say Lord take it out and fill us with your love and rest so that provision that God has can go to the nations. And Jesus in us is going to declare to the nations the Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty. He will joy over us and sing to us His love and rest, peace, joy, righteousness and holiness. This is a new day a new beginning. I feel the awesome presence of God. We need to bow before Him. Because if we don’t bow before Him there’s going to be a sweeping forth of deception that’s going to overtake the churches unless we get into this place that God is calling us into in His rest and His love so that we can stand in the midst of the storm. So that we can stand and show His provision and His glory to the nations. God is calling us to Him. There is no such thing as you can’t do it. Because it’s God who is in the midst of thee that is mighty. But unto you that fear my name shall the Son of righteousness arise with healing in His wings and ye shall go forth and grow up as calves of the stall and ye shall tread down the wicked and they shall be ashes under the souls of your feet in the day that I shall do this sayeth the Lord of hosts. Is the wicked going to win? They are going to be ashes under the souls of our feet. Because we are resting in His love. For the Lord our God in the midst of us is mighty. He is mighty. What are we going to do about it? “13 Your words have been stout against me, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, What have we spoken [so much] against thee? 14 Ye have said, It [is] vain to serve God: and what profit [is it] that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts? 15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, [they that] tempt God are even delivered. 16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. 17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. 18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.” The day is come it shall burn as an oven. What is happening all over the world right now? You would have to be blind, deaf and dumb not to know what is happening on the earth today. B
ut unto you that fear my name shall the Son of righteousness arise with healing in His wings. This is the day of the Lord. This is the day that God is speaking to you. Seek Him and His rest, seek His love and His provision is yours. This is going to be as God moves over the earth people filled with His love has His provision to meet the need of the people in these countries and His glory. Going to show His that He is God. That He loves and provides for them and He’s been waiting for the leaders to get out of the way so He can fulfill His word. It’s time for us to take stock of our own self and stop playing around. I want to see such Holy Ghost conviction come on this place that no one will be able to do the things that they are doing now. Because a lot of things are going on out there that isn’t going to be going on any more not on this property. God is declaring something. He’s going to shake this place with His presence, rest and His love. He has already given us His awesome provision. We better be shaken, because He is going to shake us. What are we here for? We’re here to fill us with His rest and His love are we willing? It’s up to us. I don’t think we’re going to play around here any longer. The Lord gave me a word last night. This is Phase two. There will be Phase three. There will be Phase four and more. So watch out. He’s moving by His spirit. He’s going to have a people in His rest and provision in His rest and glory. What are we going to do? The Lord our God in the midst of the is mighty. What are we going to do with Him. He isn’t going to rest in His love unless we start resting in His love. He’s going to shake us up until we’re rid of all the stuff that has to go so that He can fill us with His rest and love. I believe God wants to search our hearts. If you love the world you’re going down with it. If you love the world you’re going down with the wicked. There’s no other place for you. There has to come a total commitment to God. We can’t play around with it any longer.
