Revvies from the Book of Ruth: God spoke the world (kosmos) into existence and the original patterns of the world – this is why He wishes us to be renewed to the original created state
– Rom 12:2
This revelatory trip started when we were reading about Naomi in the Book of Ruth wanting to go back to her home country Moab as she had heard of the God of the Jews providing food to His people in time of famine.
The land had suffered famine during the time of the judges. Despite good judges the Israelites continued to backslide and God allowed defeat in battles and strife until they turned back and repented.
When judgement comes from God on Man, does the earth suffer?
When Man curses the earth or defiles it, does the earth suffer? Yes. Does God grieve? Yes
Famines were and are judgements of God.
They appear when we don’t hearken to His Word. (Jeremiah 29:19)
They are foretold as a sign of the 2nd advent of Christ.
” For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.”
The promises during famine are:
2 Chronicles 32:11
” Does not Hezekiah persuade you to give yourselves over to die by famine and by thirst, saying, “The Lord our God will deliver us from the hand of the king of Assyria”?”
” Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy,
To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.”
Ruth 1:1 NASB
Now it came about in the days when the judges governed, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the land of Moab with his wife and his two sons.”
Ruth 1:6 Septuagint
” And she set out, she and her two daughters-in-law, and they came back from the countryside of Moab, for they had heard in the countryside of Moab that the Lord had looked upon his people, giving them bread.”
This was a Kingless period where the law presided.
So the earth could be personally impacted by what happened in the actions of Man.
We have been warned.
“Do not judge so that you will not be judged.”
Thoughts on Creation
God spoke the Universe into existence..
He spoke the earth into existence and every particle of it. Read Genesis 1.
Read John 1, which to my mind should have been the first book in the New Testament, as it replays Genesis but with the Word of God made flesh as Jesus. So Jesus who is God is the Word and also the Universe. He is in every part of it.
God is spirit, we are spirit and the universe is spirit. The earth that was breathed out of Him, is spirit.
The earth has always been God’s recorder. It records His Word but It also absorbs and displays everything else that happens. We were made from the earth. He uses the earth as a witness to what He says and what we say.
This is one of the many ways He sees that His word is always in the planet whether or not it is prophetically spoken by a person. In effect it hangs in the air and ground and sea until spoken. These words are spirit, as the Lord Jesus told us.
John 6:63 NKJV
” It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.”
The Spirit creates!
The Word is often awakened by Him in due time and makes its way to the prophet’s heart and spirit for release into the earth.
Isaiah 26:9 New International Version (NIV)
9 My soul yearns for you in the night;
in the morning my spirit longs for you.
When your judgments come upon the earth,
the people of the world learn righteousness.
Deuteronomy 30:19 New International Version (NIV)
19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.
Now, because Jesus is the Word of God made flesh and because He reconciled all things to Himself through His Blood, why is the earth groaning?
Perhaps earth hasn’t received the revelation yet that it’s been redeemed or that Jesus had shed His Blood and died on the Cross and was raised on the third day.
Yet creation is groaning. Its spirit must be missing something. I am not sure if it has a soul like ours but it definitely reacts well to our love. It must have a heart for it to react. In the heart is Jesus’ Blood.
The sons have to awaken the earth and planet that it is redeemed and restored by the Blood. That is our task and it is done by Love!
What was Jesus, the Son of Man doing in the Earth for 3 days?
A: He was redeeming the Heart of the Earth. Since He rose from the dead, it has been waiting for our manifestation to set it free from captivity.
Just as we can be redeemed people, but still in captivity, so can the earth..
What happened when He arose from the dead?
The spirits and souls of the dead residing in the earth who were in Abraham’s bosom,were released to go to Heaven. These form the cloud of witnesses.
The remaining spirits wait in Sheol for the Great White Throne at Judgement Day at the end of the last battle. (Rev 20-11)
Matthew 28:18 after Jesus had risen.
” And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.”(this means the cosmos )
” which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.”
Q: We were asked to find out whether or not the ancient Hebrews believed that the Earth was the centre of the Universe.
A: They believed the Earth was the centre of the Universe. That’s why it is so IMPORTANT to God! Change the ‘heart’ of something/someone and you change its/their entire being. “Where your heart is their your treasure is”..
The earth is definitely the spiritual centre of the Universe. Astronomers Scientists can argue geocentricity till the cows come home but they are arguing ‘physical’.
The father of lies comes to kill, steal and destroy everything,including this earth, that we live in and to delude us that Christ did not come or even succeeded in reconciling the cosmos, including the earth to himself. He wants to persuade us it was as if the cross never happened. He cannot accept it. Delusion has overcome him.
“Reconciled in Christ
For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.”
Just as Christ is centred in the Father and in us and He is Creation, the Earth is central to His plans.
Why would He offer up His only Son for the Earth and Cosmos if it did not matter to Him?
John 3:16 For God so loved the world (the kosmos – the universe), that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world (kosmos – universe) to condemn the world (kosmos – universe); but that the world (universe) through him might be saved.
3:18 He that believeth in him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Revvie: The Blood has reconciled everything to Himself.
– 2 Co 5:18; Col 1:20; 2 Co 5:18-21
When we become a new creation being baptised like the Earth was at the beginning of Time, we display that God has also redeemed us. The earth out of which we are made, resonates with the earth upon which we walk.
This is why as sons we can take back the land as we are now owners of it.
” For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.”
You can only redeem what you own. The earth belongs to God and His Sons.
He just said to us:-
“Because the earth belongs to me, I can decide who lives on it. There are going to be a lot of evictions! ”
This is why the story of Job is so important. Uprightness, holiness purity and love are key to maintaining the stability of earth.
Job and His Family in Uz
There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil.”
Job was tested and tormented. The condition was he would not be touched. Everything on earth could be.
Job 1:6-7 septuagint
” And when the set day came, then, look, the angels of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and the slanderer came with them. And the Lord said to the slanderer, “Where have you come from?” And the slanderer answered the Lord, “I have come, after going round the earth and walking about what lies beneath heaven.””
From H7853; an opponent; especially (with the article prefixed) Satan, the arch enemy of good: – adversary, Satan, withstand.
Because of the fall of Adam and Eve, heylel (symbolized by the king of tyre) got dominion over the Earth. Now, because Heylel got dominion over earth, he could do with it whatever he wanted to.
He thus started by polluting the earth and causing famine through sin. The fallen angels mated with earthling women. He condemned the ‘cosmos’ so that they hated God, but then God sent His Son to redeem the Universe and restore the Oneness between the Earth and Himself.
satan, the accuser polluted the heart of the Earth by his viciousness and caused the Earth to mostly bring forth produce that is lacklustre-worthy. To bring forth that which is not founded or created through the grace and kindness of the Most High God.
satan had a right to put himself INTO the earth; that’s why there was a famine. Another reason why God then sends deliverers (Judges 3:9) to deliver the land. The land needed ‘excorcising’ (freeing) because it was in a state of bondage. Little did it know that it would be freed and continue to be freed by the sons of God until the sons of God are manifest in the Earth. Our job as ministers of reconciliation is to minister the reconciliation that God is offering to the world. To bring the chance creation to grasp that it may be reconciled with God.
Our job is not just to convince the people but the Earth as well.
Revvie :-The Lord showed us that whenever we do a successful ‘Romans 8:19’ on the land, we are taking it back from bondage and decay, and restoring it to its rightful position of being a land filled with milk and honey. We are bringing Heaven to Earth. We believe that the Promised land was not an earthly land, but a heavenly one.. Rom 5:21
God very clearly states in 2 Chron 7:14 that if His people – referring to ‘all people”, originally formed by God, will repent and turn from their wicked ways, then He will hear from Heaven and heal their land.
Repentance – people turning to Jesus, or acknowledging that He is good to them, and thereby making Him their Saviour, He will heal their land. That’s why we should not discount the ‘lost unbelievers’. IF MY PEOPLE.. Basically WE ARE ALL GOD’s people!! The decision will always be ours, but if we repent He will heal our land!
Revvie: satan falsely accuses the Earth. He condemns while God justifies through faith. Lacking faith and unbelief produces a condemnation upon the Universe (John 3:18)
Man has failed to perceive that God wants to shower His goodness on the land through us – His Sons, so that when the Universe and people see it, they will come to worship God. (Rom 2:4)
Jesus was raised from the dead for the salvation of Man. He was raised from the dead so that those who believe in Him may be Sons of the Highest (Gal 3:26).
A quote from Rick Pino’s song, “You’re an army dressed for battle”:
“They (the army dressed for battle) know who they are because they know who their God is.
Revvie: When we are seated in Him in Heavenly places, He removes our connection to the Earth and connects us to Himself. We are in this world but not of it. (John 17:16)
He thus makes us capable of taking back the land because whatsoever is in Heaven is pure. As we become righteous and pure of God in Christ, this allows us to be vessels through which He pours out His goodness upon the world.
Revvie: The cosmos has a supernatural pattern set by God originally that is not being followed. It has to be followed to work perfectly.
Have you ever wondered why there are so many people dying killed by animals e.g. lions, spiders, snakes, crocodiles, sharks etc?
God created them all to be in harmony.
These creatures do not have the capacity to truly recognise what they are doing, they are following the patterns of this world and the systems of this world.
They have adapted to the behaviours of this world, and yet they know that when the Sons of God arise, they will be able to be set free and have the liberty that the sons of God have.
They will occupy their true identity and live out their true purpose unhindered by the chains of evil.
Isaiah 11:6-9 Septuagint.
” And the wolf shall graze with the lamb,
and the leopard shall rest with the kid,
and the calf and the bull and the lion shall graze together,
and a little child shall lead them.
And the ox and the bear shall graze together,
and their young shall be together,
and together shall the lion and the ox eat husks.
And the young child shall put its hand over the hole of asps
and on the lair of the offspring of asps.
And they will not hurt or be able to destroy
anyone on my holy mountain,
because the whole earth has been filled to know the Lord
like much water to cover seas.”
Revvie: Repentance originating through the goodness of God causes us to turn our backs on the land we are in, cutting all chords from this land and re-aligning ourselves with the Promised Land. That’s how we get the earthly unrepenting people to become Heavenly citizens. He/she grabbing a hold of this truth will change the world to the glory of His God!
“We who are of this world follow the patterns of this world, but we who come from Heaven follow the patterns of Heaven.” – based on Romans 12:2
