He Makes all things New (Day Two)
We are entering a time that the Spirit has spoken the words,
“I am about to do for My people what they have not been able to do for themselves.”
As He spoke this He took me to three separate passages of scripture. The first was the 3rd chapter of Zechariah where the account of when Joshua the high priest is brought into the presence of the Lord with filthy garments and Satan is accusing him. The Lord rebukes the Accuser and instructs the angels of the Lord to change his garments. It is a chapter of miraculous restoration and removing of iniquities (read this chapter).
This is a picture of what the Spirit of the Lord and His angels will do for us as we finish out this year and posture our lives to yield to His work within us.
Second the Lord took me to Luke 1:38 where Mary has just been visited by an angel who is announcing that the Holy Spirit will come upon her and she will bare a child. Her response in this verse is as follows,
“Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.”
This is the posture that the Spirit is looking for within His people. We need to say, “Be it unto me according to your word.”
Finally, the Lord spoke His words from Zechariah 4:6,
“So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts.”
As we yield to His Spirit, He will do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. He will remove accusations that we have worn as garments. The root of all accusations believed and agreed with are actually accusations against the character and faithfulness of God. He will remove these iniquities that have soiled our lives and removed authority.
