Many people will say that yes they do believe that Father has all things in control and under Him – until something goes wrong or contrary to their beliefs and plans. Then they squeal like a stuck pig! Why? Mostly because Father has upset our apple cart without asking us for approval first. Mostly because we would usually say NO!!
I have felt to do this article because of what is coming ahead and many could find themselves in contrary situations beyond their choice or ability to change them.
Do you remember the story from 2 Kings 5 about the young servant girl who was kidnapped by some Syrian raiders and taken as a slave to Syria’s General Naaman for his wifes servant. Right now most western people will be thinking , “well that cant happen to me” yet to many children/people around the world that is an everyday occurrence/situation and according to script it and lots more are coming in our direction to be allowed to test us to see what our foundation is that we are standing on. Think about when the stars are falling from heaven ( which the concordance says are literal heavenly bodies/meteors etc.) How will you handle people all around you being wiped out as well as all the grass/food being burnt up as well as fiery type hail falling from the sky. Look at the stories from the exodus and what happened to Egypt as that is similar to what is going to happen to the earth again since there is nothing new under the sun and what has happened before will happen again.)
Now did you notice that she is not trying to preach to nor to convert her owners and that she is just doing her job without complaining. Any friends out there? Can you imagine the tension that there must have been in that house as it was a death sentence in those days. Anyway she is given an opportunity to share that there is a Prophet of God/Elohim in Israel who can heal him. That produces great excitement and Namaans boss, the king of Syria who sends a letter to king Jehoram in Israel who gets upset thinking it was an attempt to pick a fight with them. But Elisha sends a message to send Namaan to him. That happens but Namaan is used to having almost everyone bowing and scrapping to him so he gets upset when Elisha does not even come to the door to call on God/Elohim. Instead he tells him, through his servant, to go wash in the muddy Jordan river. That upsets him as well because they have nice clean rivers back home.
See EVERYTHING that happens to you is a test for you or someone close to you.
Our role should be to be praying and seeking His face daily, not just when things go sour/south. If we are used to praying and seeking His face then no matter what happens we can just carry on asking His help and direction.
I feel that I am to share a personal experience that was VERY painful for me.
I was away from home running a teenage Christian camp in NZ for a week. It started friday night and as well as being the administrator for the camp I was looking after a cabin of boys as well and come the monday morning I woke after an awful dream ( I get lots of them and mostly record them ) where as a family we were driving through a forest clearing in an open jeep but we were getting shot at by unseen and unknown assailants from all around the clearing. It was very painful but a strange thing was that my wife was driving in that situation whereas normally if I was there I drove as I used to drive trucks etc. But in this dream I was not able to take over and I was trying to get my wife to at least fall forward so that the pressure of her foot on the accelerator would get us through the clearing so we could get help. She said that she was unable to do that and gave up so that we stopped. I asked Father what that was all about as it was really painful. He said that my wife was committing adultery! I tried to ring her ( pre mob/cell phones ) but she had left for her work ( which she had taken against my wishes following her mothers interference ). I had this empty feeling inside and could not get hold of her till tues arvo. I told her what I had dreamt and what Father had said, which of course she denied. ( Later on she told me that she nearly fell off the phone as the guy had just told her that he loved her .) Anyway I got home at the end of the week to be told that she was going with this other guy from work.L had to move out and Father led me to a rv/caravan to arrange to buy which I was also able to take to the site of the house I was building for someone.
But it was the start of a very painful and lonely time but Father was there for me.
Later on in the Bible story Syria attacks again and surrounds the city to wait for the people to give up. They have run out of food but there are 4 lepers outside the city who also have not got any food and are starving so they decide to go to the syrian army to ask for food knowing that it may end up with them being killed anyway. As it turns out they arrive at the camp and find no one except a lot of food and gold etc. They help themselves but then feel that they should go and tell the rest of the people in the city. Then Elisha’s prophecy about how cheap the food was going to be the next day and how plentiful it was going to be, came into play/being.
No one in the city nor even those lepers thought anyone could save them, So even if you feel like those lepers who are locked out of the city and who cant live with or communicate with anyone, Father can even use you to bring relief to many people around you.
The King of Israel sent out soldiers/scouts to see if it was a trap and in chap7 they come across an enemy soldier/servant who said that they had heard what they thought were two armies coming against them to help the Israelites. That is a LOT of noise but neither the lepers nor the people in the city heard anything and nor did any of them hear the army running away with clanking armour and rapidly discarding it all to get away from the supposed armies.
So it does not matter what you can or can not hear or sea as Father has a plan and all we have to do is to get in line with His thinking and His plan. That of course does not mean that it is the churches plans nor their leaders as in my experience the church did not know what to do with a single parent father as they were struggling to handle single parent mothers. My pastor at the time even thought he was being spiritual asking his elders if a single parent father was even Biblical? I asked who did he think created them both? That was the last time I went there. Sadly most pastors seem out of touch with real life.
Then it goes on to tell us about how even though Elohim/God had delivered them and provided for them bountifully yet Jezebel and hubby still follow Baal.
Then while the king is away from the army Father gets Elisha to send a training prophet to the army to find Jehu and to anoint him as king of Israel.
What if you were Jehu or the trainy prophet and you knew Jezebel would have your head? Would you have gone? We need more like Jehu. Even when Jehu shared what the prophet had said it was still a test for the other leaders to see if they would accept Yah/God’s word. Sadly the church and believers generally want to vet and to decide what the people should hear and many claim that it is their role/right to do so but is it? In light of the fact that they are not following Torah and God/Elohim’s word they are putting themselves outside the wall of God’s/Elohim’s protection and provision.
Thankfully Jehu drove like mad to do what Father had told him to do, to kill and remove Jezebel since she would not repent and was leading Israel astray.
Forget all this tolerance gospel rubbish that is preached today as Father had another way of dealing with people who would not do it His way.
Food for thought; Do you have any idea why the church is in such a mess today?
Simply because it is run by pastors and no where in the Bible does it say that is supposed to happen. But it is a catholic example of their control because the Bible plainly says that it is the Prophets and Apostles that are supposed to run the churches. Read your Bible and tell me where it says that Yashua/Jesus used pastors. You cant because it is not there.
Also now days there is a hierarchy over the pastors like a denomination controlling who and what is said and by whom – BUT again you show me where Jesus/Yashua did a similar thing. And again you cant because it is not part of the gospel. It is only part of the catholic system.
I look forward to the day when the catholic/vatican system is exposed for all its manipulation and control of mankind for centuries and also from an archeological site/find all the lies that the church has been believing and teaching for centuries as well will be revealed.
