Just a few years in the past whereas residing close to the attractive mountain village of Summersville, West Virginia, I had a most extraordinary dream. The dream was divided into 4 elements. Within the first half, I used to be leaving my place because the Headmaster of a personal faculty. Secondly, one in all my lecturers was elevated to my former place. Thirdly, the board chairman who had lived in the neighborhood all of her life was shifting away. Within the fourth a part of the dream, I used to be preaching to a big African American church on the topic, “You Have Settled on the Different Facet of the Jordan.” Within the dream, this nice church had completed a lot and possessed an amazing nationwide ministry. Nonetheless, the Lord mentioned that that they had not reached the achievement of their divine future. As I preached, the highly effective presence of the Lord descended in that mighty church. He started to present revelation and route in regards to the immense future that He had deliberate for them. The church exploded in worship and reward. I woke up from the dream.
The primary three elements of the dream occurred inside just a few months. I resigned from my place, the trainer I noticed within the dream grew to become the interim Head of Faculty, and the board chairman and her husband bought their household enterprise and left city. Nonetheless, the fourth a part of the dream didn’t instantly occur. The truth is, I didn’t perceive this portion of the dream. 5 years handed as I frequently contemplated the dream in my coronary heart. Not too long ago, I used to be invited to conduct a grant writing workshop and preach at a big African American church in Chicago. I nonetheless didn’t perceive the that means of the message, “You Have Settled On the Different Facet of the Jordan” however the Lord directed me to evangelise this message. As I studied the Phrase, the unbelievable prophetic that means of the message within the dream was revealed.
Two and a half tribes of the Israelites discovered the wealthy farm and grazing lands to the east of the Jordan River to their liking. The tribes of Gad, Reuben, and half of the massive tribe of Manasseh determined to decide on the “different facet” of the Jordan and thus not cross over into the promised land. Moses and Joshua had given them permission to take action however with one main requirement, their warriors should led the battle in taking the Promised Land. Joshua chapter three information the miraculous parting of the flooded Jordan. The clergymen led the procession on a dry, divine path made by means of the flood waters. True to their settlement, 40,000 warriors of the 2 and a half tribes took the lead within the battle. Their divine future was to imagine the reigns of management in battle and convey the remainder of the tribes into their promised destinies and lands. What an amazing mantle of ministry was laid upon Gad, Reuben and half of Manasseh!
The Lord started to disclose the divine future that He has for HIS African American individuals. I used to be given an article written by Susan Castell which surprised me. The request prophetic word given to her regarding African American believers was an identical to what the Lord was revealing to me. She wrote: ” You have got come to this land for such a time as this. It’s now time to put apart the load of racial hatred and the sin of unforgiveness which so readily clings to and entangles you. It’s now time to neglect what lies behind and to succeed in forth to what lies forward. It’s now time to come up and search Me for the achievement of your divine future.
Simply because the survival of historic Egypt and Israel rested on the shoulders of Joseph (a person bought into slavery by his brothers and carried away to a overseas land), so does the very survival of this nice nation of America relaxation upon you. It’s now time to embrace My plan and to permit Me to beginning inside you the center and the angle of Joseph who was in a position to forgive his brothers and people who had enslaved and imprisoned him. It’s now time to embrace the cross of My Son and develop into an amazing blessing within the land of your captivity.
At the same time as man has seemingly succeeded in humbling you to the very lowest of locations, so will I exalt you to the very highest place, even to the very throne of My Glory. As you humble yourselves below My mighty hand and permit the thoughts and coronary heart of Christ to be shaped in you, you’ll expertise supernatural therapeutic and deliverance from the various and deep wounds inflicted by those that have degraded, despised and humiliated you. As you establish with My Son and you start to cry out: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do”, you’ll enter into a brand new dimension of My Grace and Glory, and you’ll obtain the revelation of Jesus Christ and His Resurrection energy which your hearts have been hungering for.
It’s now time to know that every one historical past, together with Black Historical past, is HIS STORY. It’s now time to elevate up your eyes above man’s agenda and catch the imaginative and prescient of My agenda. It’s now time to declare with Joseph: “As for you, you thought evil towards me, however G-d meant it for good, to result in that many individuals needs to be saved alive…” (Gen. 50:20)
Come up my individuals, my Joseph firm, whom I’ve introduced from afar and planted on this land for such a time as this. Look unto Me and I’ll unveil the that means of your historical past. Look unto Me and I’ll reveal the thriller of your many and lengthy sufferings. I’m the L-rd your G-d, and apart from Me, there is no such thing as a different. Look unto Me and be healed of the injuries of your captivity. Look unto Me and I’ll make you free to be my devices of therapeutic and deliverance on this land of your divine future.”
The fullness of the prophetic that means of the message, “Selecting the Different Facet of the Jordan,” got here into full focus. The Nice Awakening that’s quickly to burst upon this world as a remaining witness will likely be led by a “Joseph Firm” that God has been getting ready for a very long time. This Awakening will convey God’s holy remnant collectively as a Bride with out spot or wrinkle. Divisions, separations, and partitions will collapse because the Church comes collectively to meet her remaining future. Every tribe that composes the Church has a promised future, a particular divine mission to meet. Main the best way to convey all tribes of believers into that achievement would be the African American believer. Similar to Gad, Reuben and Manasseh, a mantle of management will relaxation upon them. God is a superb bookkeeper. All the weary years and lengthy generations of blood, sweat, tears, unpaid slave wages and rejection WILL BE PAID IN FULL! It is not going to come from the White Home, the Supreme Courtroom or from Congress. It is going to come from the hand of the mighty God! Similar to Joseph, they are going to be instantly ushered from obscurity to the fullness of divinely appointed management. What man meant for evil, God will flip into good for the saving of many lives. The mantle of management will likely be laid upon them by a divine Hand. They are going to lead the remainder of us into our appointed destinies. I imagine that the Holy Spirit is stirring inside them now. Divine presents inside which were given for this prophetic hour at the moment are being activated and launched. Understanding of the lengthy evening of their struggling is being revealed to them. The guts of Joseph is reaching perfection inside them. God calls them to meet their future. The Jordan has parted earlier than them. They cleared the path for the remainder of the Physique of Christ to observe. Pay day has lastly come!
