So, last Tuesday, after what our friend, Stephen, commented on my status, I asked the Lord if we could talk more about that thousand-fold. (wink wink, nudge nudge)
Wednesday night the first confirmation of a thousand-fold came. Saturday morning a second one. In astonishment I asked, “LORD, are you really speaking this for us NOW?” Immediately He spoke ~ “The least of you will become A THOUSAND, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the LORD; in its time I will do this swiftly.”!!!!! (confirmation 3) When I looked up those words to find where they were in Scripture and saw they were from Isaiah 60 (v. 22) I was in awe, since that chapter is full of so many other confirmations of things He’s spoken (and have been recurring themes).
Just to make sure He’d really spoken that passage to me and was giving us that chapter again (and it wasn’t just my own thought I heard), I asked that if this was truly from Him, that He would continue to confirm. Later that morning, Jesse came down from his time of seeking and showed me his notes; I was overwhelmed to discover the Lord had given him Isaiah 59-60 in answer to what he’d asked about!!!!! (confirmation 4)
Then, when we went to bed that night – the next confession on our list was from ISAIAH 60; it included many of the verses from the chapter and ended with – “We ARE THE SHOOT the Lord has planted, the work of His hands for the DISPLAY OF HIS SPLENDOR. THE LEAST OF US WILL BECOME A THOUSAND, AND THE SMALLEST A MIGHTY NATION. God is the Lord; in its time, He will do this swiftly.”
3 confirmations of Isaiah 60 in one day!!! 5 confirmations of the thousand-fold in 5 days!!! Be Encouraged Saints and Get Ready for the THOUSAND-FOLD HARVEST of SOULS!!! He’s calling us to “ARISE AND SHINE” NOW in the midst of great darkness and assuring us that “in its time, He will do it swiftly!”
The Glory of Zion
1 “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. 2 See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. 3 Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. 4 “Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the arm. 5 Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come. 6 Herds of camels will cover your land, young camels of Midian and Ephah. And all from Sheba will come, bearing gold and incense and proclaiming the praise of the LORD. 7 All Kedar’s flocks will be gathered to you, the rams of Nebaioth will serve you; they will be accepted as offerings on my altar, and I will adorn my glorious temple.
8 “Who are these that fly along like clouds, like doves to their nests? 9 Surely the islands look to me; in the lead are the ships of Tarshish, bringing your sons from afar, with their silver and gold, to the honor of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor. 10 “Foreigners will rebuild your walls, and their kings will serve you. Though in anger I struck you, in favor I will show you compassion. 11 Your gates will always stand open, they will never be shut, day or night, so that men may bring you the wealth of the nations– their kings led in triumphal procession. 12 For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly ruined. 13 “The glory of Lebanon will come to you, the pine, the fir and the cypress together, to adorn the place of my sanctuary; and I will glorify the place of my feet. 14 The sons of your oppressors will come bowing before you; all who despise you will bow down at your feet and will call you the City of the LORD, Zion of the Holy One of Israel. 15 “Although you have been forsaken and hated, with no one traveling through, I will make you the everlasting pride and the joy of all generations. 16 You will drink the milk of nations and be nursed at royal breasts. Then you will know that I, the LORD, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
17 Instead of bronze I will bring you gold, and silver in place of iron. Instead of wood I will bring you bronze, and iron in place of stones. I will make peace your governor and righteousness your ruler. 18 No longer will violence be heard in your land, nor ruin or destruction within your borders, but you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise. 19 The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. 20 Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end. 21 Then will all your people be righteous and they will possess the land forever. They are the shoot I have planted, the work of my hands, for the display of my splendor. 22 The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the LORD; in its time I will do this swiftly.”
