"Provision for the Vision – God is Giving You What You Need!" 

by Edie Bayer, Houston, TX

From the Desk of Steve Shultz:

Steve ShultzSo many prophetic voices have said we are in a day of crossing over into our Promised's time to take the land! AND with that...if God has called you, He will provide! Yes, He will.

Many times, it starts with our walk of faith and watching what God will do. If you are in that season of taking new territory, starting something fresh and new, you've got to read this word by Edie Bayer as she shares:

" have been given absolutely EVERYTHING that you need to accomplish your God-given task! God has hand-selected you for the task He personally has given you! So, since God has assigned it to you, He will provide for you. In other words, He will give you what you need: provision for the vision.

Amen! I pray for you be strengthened and encouraged as you walk by faith into this new season!

"Provision for the Vision – God is Giving You What You Need!" by Edie Bayer, Houston, TX

In the past few days, the Lord has had me in Ezra 7. I love Ezra 7, because Ezra has so much favor from the King. It took me a couple of days, but I finally realized that God was speaking about that very thing: we have favor from the King! Lots of it, in massive quantities! I believe that this chapter holds the key to the season into which many may be walking.

God, the voice of many waters, is speaking through Ezra to us! The King has given Ezra absolutely EVERYTHING that he needs to accomplish the task for which he was given permission – for which he has gained approval – from the King. Not only did the King deem him worthy of the project and purpose, but He supplied his every need to accomplish it with lots left over (Ezra 7:15-16, 18).

Provision for the Vision!

In the exact same way, you have been given absolutely EVERYTHING that you need to accomplish your God-given task! God has hand-selected you for the task He personally has given you! So, since God has assigned it to you, He will provide for you. In other words, He will give you what you need: provision for the vision.

Ezra received a letter stating he was entitled to steward all the silver and all the gold given by his earthly king to our heavenly King. Additionally, he was given permission to acquire all the gold and silver that he found in Babylon, along with all the freewill offerings, to be used for God's Kingdom purposes.

That same letter now belongs to us! Although it was written long ago by a Persian king for a scribe of the God of Heaven (Ezra 7:11), that same letter entitles us to steward all the silver and all the gold in Babylon! That includes all the wealth of the seven mountains and all of the cattle on them (Ps. 50:10)! It includes all the wealth that has started to be and is still in the process of being transferred to the righteous (Prov. 13:22). It includes wisdom, revelation knowledge, power and authority – all wrapped up into one letter written to us thousands of years ago!

Get Ready to Have an AFTER THIS Experience!

There was a sixty-year gap between chapters six and seven in the book of Ezra. The book of Esther happened during this "silence". Saints, sometimes God is silent about what you want Him to talk about, because He is busy working on other areas of your life. These are Esther areas: areas of preparation for becoming the queen – His Bride! He wants a bride without spots or wrinkles, so He has been silently working on you. He has been preparing you for the after all along!

Ezra 7:1 reads, "Now, after this..." (emphasis mine). What is your this? Is your this economic famine? Have finances been incredibly tight? Has your this been health challenges? Have you been facing health obstacles that up until now have been impossible to overcome? Has your this had somebody's name? Have relationships been your this? Has hurt been your this? Have you had this attitude, or this thought process? Has pride been your this, or depression?

If so, that's GREAT! By God overcoming the this in your life, it will give Him the glory and the honor that He deserves! After all, if you could do it yourself, you wouldn't need God. He moves in the miraculous!

Take Your Eyes Off the this and Put Them on the after!

Even though this was important for a season, what is even more important about Ezra 7:1 is the after! It says, "Now after this..." (emphasis mine)! What is most important is what is about to happen – your afterYou had to go through the this. You had to endure the this. Your this, although it may have been painful, and helped shape and prepare you, is not as important as the afterGod has been preparing you for the after. Everything else has been boot camp.

Not everyone will go up with you, only those that "offer freely" (Ezra 7:13). This means that you cannot drag anyone along, kicking and screaming, into your after. They may have been with you in the this, but they are not part of the "that"! Some people will choose to stay in the this, while you move on into your after. Your job now is to complete your assignment: your after. Theirs is between them and God.

When does this happen? NOW! This same verse says, "Now after this..." (emphasis mine). The time is now. God is a now God and this is a now word! It's a now time and a now season. 

Arise, family of God! Be prostrate no more, because we are now in a new time! Take your eyes off of the this and put them on the after!

Write the Vision!

Do you have a vision? If not, you better get one! Habakkuk 2:2 says, "Write the vision..." Proverbs 29:18 says, "Without a vision, the people perish." How can God give you provision for the vision if you don't have a vision? Write the vision so you can operate in the PROVISION!

The King told Ezra exactly what to buy with his Kingdom money in verse 17. This gave him a vision, or rather, something to envision. What is God saying to you? What is our King saying for you to envision, for you to buy into? Write it down!

Lastly, the King told Ezra in verse 18, "And whatever shall seem good to you and to your brethren to do with the rest of the silver and the gold, that do after the will of your God."

The bottom line is this: Write the vision that God gives you. Once you have this godly game plan—a strategy—you can trust God to fulfill it. 

He will give you more than you ask for, over and above anything you can ask, think or imagine (Eph. 3:20). There will be so much, in fact, that God has a contingency plan! This is for you to do what you know to be in alignment with God's will with the extra that He gives you—above and beyond your budget—even exceeding your vision!

God trusts you to do what is right. Because He has trusted you with the little, He can trust you with the big! 

You have proven you are trust-worthy! He knows He can trust you with the PROVISION! He will give you what you NEED to SUCCEED in the "After"! Our God will make sure you have it.

Solomon's Wisdom ✡ "The Fear Of Hashem Is The Beginning Of Knowledge" - Israel365

The fear of Hashem is the beginning of knowledge;
Fools despise wisdom and discipline.

יִרְאַת יְהוָה רֵאשִׁית דָּעַת חָכְמָה וּמוּסָר אֱוִילִים בָּזוּ

משלי א:ז
yir-AT a-do-NAI ray-SHEET DA-at khokh-MAH u-mu-SAR e-vee-LEEM BA-zu

Shabbat Inspiration

The Book of Proverbs contains the collected wisdom of Shlomo, the wisest king to sit on the throne in Israel. Proverbs 1:7 sets the tone for the entire book of Proverbs. Once King Solomon has set out his purpose – to impart wisdom – in writing, he begins by identifying fear of Hashem as the root of that wisdom. Without awe of God, knowledge is empty and can be twisted for any number of negative purposes. The entire Torah, not just the Book of Proverbs, is packed full of eternal wisdom and knowledge. The Israel Institute of Biblical Studies will help you unlock these holy messages and understand the language of the Bible.

On the eve of Yom Kippur, “Putin in Ankara to forge alliance of Russia, Turkey & Iran.” Here’s why that’s interesting. - Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog


On the eve of Yom Kippur, “Putin in Ankara to forge alliance of Russia, Turkey & Iran.” Here’s why that’s interesting. 

by joelcrosenberg  Sept. 29, 2017
(Denver, Colorado) -- Readers of my novel, The Ezekiel Option, and non-fiction book, Epicenter, and this blog know how interested I am in the ancient prophecies of Ezekiel 38 and 39 and what is known by rabbis, pastors and Bible scholars as the "War of Gog and Magog."
The Hebrew prophet Ezekiel wrote some 2,500 years ago that in the "last days" of history, the Jewish people will be gathered back to the land of Israel from all the nations where they have been scattered and exiled, they will rebuild the State of Israel, and they will create a nation of ever-increasing security and prosperity.
At that time, Ezekiel indicates an evil dictator identified as "Gog" will rise up in Russia (known in Biblical times as "Magog") who will form an alliance with Iran (known in Biblical times as "Persia"), Turkey (known in Biblical times as "Gomer"), and several other Middle Eastern and North African countries. Together, this alliance will surround and then seek to attack and consume Israel and the Jewish people.
Skeptics of the Bible dismiss all talk of prophecy as uneducated, unsophisticated and downright ridiculous, despite the fact that over the last century we've been seeing one Bible prophecy after another come to pass:
  • Jews from all over the world have been streaming back to live in the Land of Israel (myself included)
  • Israelis have been rebuilding the ancient ruins and building a modern, flourishing, prosperous economy.
  • Israelis have been creating the strongest and most successful military in the entire Middle East, have forged an enduring alliance with the world's only superpower, and feel more secure today than ever in their modern existence.
So some of us find headlines like these particularly interesting:
Keep in mind that tensions between Russia and Turkey (a NATO member) have been running quite high in recent years.
So it's not exactly obvious that Putin and Turkish President Recep Erdogan would be meeting in the Turkish capital to forge an alliance together, much less with Iran.
Yet that's exactly what happened this week.

  • Putin’s visit to Ankara comes a few days prior to the scheduled visit of Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud’s to Moscow on October 5-7, 2017. After patching up an acrimonious row between the countries over the downing of a Russian jetfighter in November 2015 over Syria, both leaders have pledged to restore their political and economic relations to pre-crisis levels....
  • Moscow called for a peace conference in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, which involved Turkey and Iran. The countries formed a diplomatic triad for setting up de-escalation zones in Syria in order to end the war and stop the division of the country. Russia chose Astana as a venue for the talks to send a message to the US that it should not get close to Russian borders through former republics of the Soviet Union....
  • Turkish leadership is seeking strategic relationship with Russia to replace the loss of its Western alliance. In other words, Ankara is effecting a shift toward a more “Eurasian-ist” orientation due to the proximity of the region, the overlapping of interests, common cultural values and language.
  • After winning the war in Syria, Russia is now seeking to ensure its peace – a mission no less difficult than going to war. Initially, Russia used Turkey as a key partner to make the Syrian opposition accept a truce and join peace talks for reaching a political settlement....
  • Russian-Turkish bilateral relations have several common traits: pragmatism, multi-faceted approach, commonalities, reliance on energy resources, geopolitical power, military performance, circumspection toward the West. All of this has fueled the Russian and Turkish pursuit to play a pivotal role at the Eurasian and Middle Eastern landscapes....
  • In 2014, Putin and Erdogan signed several agreements on bilateral trade with the two countries hoping that their annual trade volume would reach $100 billion by 2020. However, the most important achievement of the meeting was the agreement to expand cooperation in natural gas trade. Russia aimed through these agreements to also increase its gas exports to Turkey by more than 3 billion cubic meters because of the latter’s increasing need for energy.
  • Turkey imports 93 percent of its energy needs, 97 percent of which is natural gas. Ankara buy 60 percent of its gas from Russia, which makes it the second largest importer of Russian natural gas after Germany. The value of Turkish exports to Russia does not exceed $6 billion....
  • The recent military rapprochement between Ankara and Moscow with the S-400 deal has upset NATO officials because the Russian system, an anti-air defense system, is incompatible with NATO’s. With this deal, Russia will be the third biggest arms exporter to Turkey after Germany and the US.
  • Erdogan, who plans to visit Iran in October to bolster military cooperation, will also be discussing the repercussions of any independent Kurdish state that might inflame separatist tensions in Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria....
To be clear, I'm not saying that as Yom Kippur begins this year, Israel faces an imminent threat of attack from Russia, Turkey or Iran. Nor am I saying that this week's meeting between Putin and Erdogan necessarily fulfills Biblical prophecy. It's simply too early to say whether the alliances that are forming between have Biblical significance. Likewise, it's also too early to say that Putin is Gog, though he certainly seems "Gog-esque." We simply don't have enough information, so we should not be quick to draw conclusions.
That said, even skeptics of the Bible should find recent events not only troubling geopolitically, but also curiously consistent with the words of the ancient Hebrew prophet Ezekiel. I certainly do.
