A Cypriot speaker from South Africa visited Cyprus to share the word of the Lord through this message....worth reading:
Among those joining David to establish the kingdom...1 Chronicles 12v32:Men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do—200 chiefs, with all their relatives under their command.’
Leaders understood the times and knew what to do! Advisors to the nation.
When in God’s timing, heaven opens. The ability to do the right thing, but also at the right time! Sometimes God wants us to stop praying and act on what He has already said, revealed, to us. Also, Jesus said that at the right time, his disciples would fast. Fasting and prayer, the word, action.
Can we discern the times? Luke 12v54-56: He said to the crowd: "When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, 'It's going to rain,' and it does. 55 And when the south wind blows, you say, 'It's going to be hot,' and it is. 56 Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don't know how to interpret this present time?
What is God doing now? Co-operate with Him in what He is doing! NB. The enemy and the flesh will seek to choke us. (Five areas of enemy action: Affliction; persecution; fleshly desires; cares; the deceitfulness of riches.) If choked, will do the wrong thing and at the wrong time, or will simply do nothing.
ESTHER: Mordecai stirred up Esther: 4v13-14: Do not think that because you are in the king's house you alone of all the Jews will escape. 14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?" Esther awakened to her destiny!
The Church in Cyprus needs to be spiritually awakened from sleep...c.f. those in natural sleep are unaware of what is going on around them. Cyprus: The nation’s hope is lost if we sleep.
JONAH: was asleep on a boat while the city of Nineveh was about to perish. It took unbelievers to wake him up! God had problems with his ‘prophet’...c.f. the Church in Cyprus. Do what He has told us to do.
The speaker asked God about the times for Cyprus...What time is it spiritually?
It is a pivotal time for the Church in Cyprus. A crucial, critical, decisive and determining hour.
We have to make decisions, we have a choice. We, the Church, and its leaders, shall be called to give account for Cyprus. What time is it? Romans 13v11-14: And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armour of light. 13 Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. 14 Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
Wake up from slumber! Do not gratify the flesh. There is clarity when you are awake....e.g. those who were ‘awake’ in Cyprus took their money out of the bank! Esther called for fasting and prayer and divine strategy was revealed. What about your city? 3 days of fasting and prayer revealed a divine plan for victory. We position ourselves in God through prayer and fasting. What would happen if in your city, leaders spent 2-3 days in prayer and fasting in one place, in order to receive divine revelation regarding your city?
HAGGAI: called the leaders to get their priorities right, putting God first. Haggai 1v4-11:
4 "Is it a time for you yourselves to be living in your panelled houses, while this house remains a ruin?" 5 Now this is what the Lord Almighty says: "Give careful thought to your ways. 6 You have planted much, but have harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it." 7 This is what the Lord Almighty says: "Give careful thought to your ways. 8 Go up into the mountains and bring down timber and build the house, so that I may take pleasure in it and be honoured," says the Lord. 9 "You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?" declares the Lord Almighty. "Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with his own house. 10 Therefore, because of you the heavens have withheld their dew and the earth its crops. 11 I called for a drought on the fields and the mountains, on the grain, the new wine, the oil and whatever the ground produces, on men and cattle, and on the labour of your hands."
Cyprus faces dark days. The leaders, Zerubabbel and Joshua the high priest, responded to build the house of the Lord. Proverbs 24v3-4: By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; 4 through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.
With Martha and Mary, it was Mary who chose the word of God over other priorities and busyness. Are we fulfilling our own agendas or God’s agenda? Going ‘up into the mountains’ means coming into the place of God’s presence. Spending time with Him.
Question: If Jesus came here now, what would He say to the Church in Cyprus? We / you have a choice to hear and do what He says.
