Turn to Psalms 2. It asks a question:
1. “Why do the heathen rage and the people image a vain thing?
2. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, [saying],
3. Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7. I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou [art] my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8. Ask of me, and I shall give [thee] the heathen [for] thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth [for] thy possession.
9. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
10. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish [from] the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed [are] all they that put their trust in him.”
The Lord created man to love Him; but He also gave us a free will. I feel this morning that God is saying, “Now I am going to show this world that I am God.” He can’t go into these countries that have said, “You can’t come in.” Places with Hinduism, Buddhism, Muslims and everything else have closed their borders to Christianity. They said, “You’re not welcome God, you can’t come in.” I want to read another scripture to you, Psalms 24.
Can you think for a moment what it would be like to be the creator of the universe and be denied by the people that you created and are saying that you don’t even exist? Can you think of that?
Psalm 24:1. “The earth [is] the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein
2. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
3. Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4. He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6. This [is] the generation of them that seek him that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
7. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8. Who [is] this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
9. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift [them] up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he [is] the King of glory. Selah.”
What is He saying? “This King of glory!” Why is He stressing in Psalms 2 and Psalms 24 the King of glory? Because His King of glory is in Zion! Where are we? We’re supposed to be in Zion aren’t we? Who is in charge of us? The King of glory! Turn to Isaiah 59. The situation that He’s talking about in this chapter is where judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off, truth is fallen in the street, and equity can’t enter. Truth failed and He that departs from you shall make himself a smear. The Lord saw it and it displeased Him that there was no judgment and He saw that there was no man and wondered that there was no intercessor; therefore His arm brought salvation unto him and His righteousness sustained him.
Isaiah 59:17. “For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance [for] clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloke.
18. According to [their] deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.
19. So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
20. And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.
21. As for me, this [is] my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that [is]
upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.”
Psalms 2:6. “Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7. I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou [art] my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8. Ask of me, and I shall give [thee] the heathen [for] thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth [for] thy possession.”
Why was this declaration made at this particular time? Because the leaders of nations said, “We’re not going to allow God or His anointed ones to come into our nations.” Years ago I asked the Lord a question. I said, “Lord why don’t you show this world who you are? They curse you, they revile you and they don’t want to believe in you; they mock you just like it says here in Psalms 2.”
He gave me a scripture, and He gave me an answer. He said, “I placed my strength into captivity and my glory into the enemies’ hands.” (Ps. 78:61) I believe that He’s now taking it out of the enemies’ hands and He’s going to take over.
Psalms 78:65. “Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, [and] like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.
66. And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.
Why? They declared, “God’s not coming into our country.” The Communists rose up and the Communists said, “The world is going into Communism and there’s no God.” The Chinese went into Communism and they had all of their God’s and their idols. Then here comes the Buddhists and they have taken the world. And the Muslims declare that they’re taking over America and they’re doing a good job of it. Why? Because the Christians are asleep!
“I’m going to show this world I am God.” When He told me this, when I was a teenager, I knew the day would come and He would give me the privilege of knowing when He was going to take over.
When I was in Colorado Springs in 1998 He declared that He had raised His scepter and He said, “Now I am going to take over.” It was very mighty, very emphatic. I don’t know what anybody else felt; but I knew one thing, God had risen up and said now I’m going to show the world that I created it and everybody in it, and I’m going into those nations and I’m going to show them my love and my glory.
He is sending His judgment over every nation. Where are we supposed to be while He is doing this? I believe God reunited the business world where they should have been all the time; but man had separated them the way they pleased.
The church became so holy that they had no time to feed the hungry or clothe the naked or do anything but be holy. It displeased God. He had an appointed time and that time is now. The body of Christ has to come back into line with what God has ordained it to be; not what we think it should be.
I’ve had many churches say to me, “It’s the job of the welfare, to feed the hungry. It’s not our job.” They’re going to stand before Him one day and what a shock they’re going to have. He said, “I was hungry and you didn’t feed me. Depart from me you workers of inequity.” How are we going to handle it if we neglect to do what God’s called us to do? We get caught up in our stinking flesh and we don’t pay attention to what God is saying to us. We need to shake ourselves and realize that we have a responsibility before almighty God to take this gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations.
We play our games; we can’t even do our jobs. When somebody tells us the right way to do it we get into an argument. Where are we today? Where is our heart and why are we bickering? Why are we complaining while the world goes to hell?
He said, “I have set my king on Zion, my holy hill. I will declare the degree.” You’re not at Sommer Haven just to be at Sommer Haven. You’re not here to do your own will or walk your own way. There are teachers and you need to hear what they say and do it the way they say it, even if you don’t like it. It will change your lives!
When Jesus went back to be with the Father, what did he say? I want to read a verse. John 17:18. “As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.” This is the commission that God gave to us! He goes back to His Father, what is His command? Take this gospel of the kingdom to the ends of the earth. What have we done with it?
We’ve got everything but the kingdom: we’re demonstrating our doctrines, demonstrating the way we want to live. What about the way of the kingdom?
We have a King and He’s on His Holy hill. What is He doing? What are we allowing Him to do? He said, “Father, I would that they go with me to heaven.” I’m going to shock you; He didn’t save you just to go to heaven. He saved us to go to the world; then the reward of it is heaven. The job of it is on the earth. Heaven doesn’t need it, the world needs it. “Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.”
But Jesus said, “I must send them to the world.”
Our doctrine has been all messed up because all we think about is getting saved and going to heaven. The truth is, that inside of us, is the kingdom of God and our reward is heaven. The King of glory should live in you and you should be taking instructions from Him; not you telling Him what to do.
John 17:18 says, “As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.” It doesn’t matter what the world thinks and we already know what the devil thinks. We, as Christians, can just be happy Christians; the devil isn’t worried about you. But, when you obey God that is when the devil gets concerned. It’s up to you, whether you’re going to obey God or not. God has opened up the nations to us, but we can’t do it alone. We have to allow God to train us.
Some awesome things are happening this weekend; some awesome things happened last weekend on the face of this earth. He’s bringing judgment to the nations, but He’s also bringing judgment to us as we strip ourselves from our stinking flesh and let the King of glory take His place inside of us. We’re hindering the process of the Lord as long as we dwell in our flesh. Get rid of it and let God use you.
I’m sure the King of glory, in you, is not going to comfort your flesh. He’s going to clean it out, so His love can come in you and then you can take it to the nations. You’re not going without Him. He only has us to do it. What are we doing about it?
We heard there’s a mighty cyclone in Africa and India. Now India is a little harder nut to crack because it’s all Hindu and it doesn’t want God; but nothing is going to stop God from taking over India.
What part do we have in it? On Friday of next week there’s a convention going on in India. It’s a business meeting of the leaders of nations. We need to pray. When this cyclone hit Orica, India God declared, “I am God. I’m taking over India,” and He’s doing it.
I felt in my spirit it can’t be a little thing; it has to be an explosive thing to jar India with God’s light. Please pray for Bro. Shaker because He will be here tomorrow but only for a few days. The day He arrives back in India he is going before the leaders of nations that are coming to India and God is going to use Him to speak to them concerning what God’s going to do. The Lord gave me a word to focus in on India. We are focusing in on India right now, because God is going to bring His love, His light and His glory to India. 330 million gods are not any challenge to God.
On my first trip into India a very strange thing happened to me. I was going with a Charismatic Catholic group. I went two weeks ahead of them and I had just met Bro. Joseph in Hubly and he had asked me to come to see him. I went to see him two weeks ahead of the group and he met me in Bombay; for Hubly is 100 miles from the airport in Bombay.
He said, “Agnes I want to show you Bombay.” It happened to be the biggest festivity of lights by the Hindu religion. What do they do on that day? They have carts and trucks and haul their idols down the middle of their streets. On each side of the street there are millions of people bowing down to these idols. We get caught in the middle of the travel and we’re not going anywhere very fast. The Lord said to me, “I want you to pray in the spirit that I will bind the powers of the idols on the minds of the people.”
Now here they are bowing down on both sides of the street to these idols. I am in the middle of the traffic riding right along with them. I had another reason for being there; for the Spirit of the Lord was binding the powers that be, off the minds of these people as they were going down the street. I didn’t know when I was going to India this was going to happen to me. I didn’t know how God was going to use me; but He did. We were in Hubli with all this land, nothing but land. He was just starting this ministry, so we prayed over all the land, that God would give it to him for the ministry; for him to do what he was called to do.
Bro. Joseph had died in an accident, his wife Rosie and the wife of their son Leslie died also. She and Leslie were only married 20 days when the accident happened. The Lord told me in 1997, “I want you to go back to India.” I went back to Leslie’s wedding. There I saw two orphanages on the land that we had prayed for. I saw a bible school and a clinic and a church; all the product of God’s spirit.
I came into Bombay on my first trip and I’ve never been with Catholics in my life. I didn’t know anything about Pentecost, because I was a Nazarene, but God started enlightening me by experience for my friends were all Catholic. Something happened to me at that convention; I found myself with the priest and the nuns. They were taking me everywhere. The last day of that convention they said, “Will you be the speaker?” I wasn’t Catholic; I didn’t know anything about it. There were six groups in Bombay alone and they would all gather in one meeting and they asked me to be the speaker. I had no idea when I went to India what was going to happen.
In 1998 this woman who doesn’t know me or anything about me said that what God did was small compared to what God was going to do now. God sent me to Rome and I met the Pope. I prayed over thousands to know Jesus. What is it? God’s heart is to draw the whole world to Him that everyone would know Him. We have to allow the Spirit of the Lord to direct us.
One day the Lord said to me, “If you ask me I’ll give them to you.” I said, “Lord I ask you for the heathen for my inheritance and the outermost parts of the earth for my possession.” That was a pretty big blessing wasn’t it? He told me to ask. He said, “I’ll give them to you. Then He said, “Call upon me and I will answer. I will do a great and mighty thing.” I said, “Lord, I will call upon you.” Both of those things have been very prevalent in my life; because I asked and He answered. He said to me at that time, “If I don’t have it, I’ll create it for you.” I believe it! Yesterday I had an experience and I very quickly realized God was fulfilling that promise. If we don’t have it, He’ll create it for us. Where are we this morning in the promise?
What does He require of us? How do we stand with Him in comparison to that which He requires of us? This morning, where are we in the kingdom? Jesus said, “Go ye into all the world and be a witness for me.” Where do we stand this morning before Him? What does He require of us? I’m giving you my experience. You have your own and what are you doing with it. Are your ears tuned to Him so He can train you?
I’ve never believed that God established Sommer Haven for people to do their own thing. I believe that He established it so that we would flow together, in the purpose of God, that He could accomplish His purpose with us. Many people have come and gone out to do their own thing. I am not God, but I know He didn’t establish us for people to walk in their own ways. He established us to walk in His ways with Him as the King of glory, clothed with vengeance against the enemy.
I have one more scripture I want to read to you. I’m trying to encourage you that the King of glory wants to be king of your life.
Isaiah 9:5. “For every battle of the warrior [is] with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but [this] shall be with burning [and] fuel of fire.
6. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7. Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end…”
Where are we today?
“…upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”
Who is going to perform it? Jesus is clothed with vengeance! The zeal is a cloak over Him. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. Why are we complaining? Why are we afraid of the devil? I know I’ve covered a lot this morning. It’s right up to the minute. The King of glory says, “Let me come in. I’ll fight your battles for you. I’m all ready for it.” The Lord of Hosts shall do this.
We are in another world. We are commissioned by the King of glory. Psalms 2:7 “I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou [art] my Son; this day have I begotten thee.” This day He wants to be King in us. He wants to have charge of His kingdom that He’s placed in us, not with us ruling it; but with Him ruling it. I think it’s very clear. I don’t know how anyone can misunderstand it. We aren’t going anywhere without Him; He has to become the King in us.
I think a lot of us, when we don’t want to do things, we don’t do them. We have to stand before Him! Things are happening very mightily now for the Lord has arisen to show the nation that He created the earth and He created everyone in it. He’s going everywhere to declare it and He’s going in by judgment. These things that are going over the earth right now, I’ve never known before in the same measure that they are now. Our safe haven is in Christ and Christ in us. I think we need to make less decisions with our minds and let the Lord decide what He wants for us, so that we can be that vessel to obey Him.
We’re going to Singapore in a few days. There we’re meeting with Pastor Lawrence who has a church of 10,000. He’s asked us if we will join with them in the taking of this gospel of the kingdom, to all the earth. We have meetings with different committees and the sadness of my heart is that I don’t have teams here ready to go in there to teach and to train. I believe God is going to raise them up in Singapore. Many of them are Chinese. I believe He is going to raise them up there and send them out.
We have much to do here; we need to become more in one accord so the Lord can minister the needs to us that we might be ready to move when He wants us to move.
