Scripture: Isaiah 55:12,13
Isaiah 55:12,13 states, “For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills Shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree, And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree; And it shall be to the LORD for a name,
For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.” When this harvest comes, we will go out with joy. We are led forth with peace. The mountains will break forth into singing before us. The trees will clap their hands. Instead of the earth bringing forth a curse, it begins to bring forth a blessing. It is a blessing that cannot be cut-off. Verse thirteen says that every believer is a sign that no one can stop. When we sow these seeds in our spirit and we speak them, we plant them, we water them until they come up, we become a sign that no one can stop. Who among us does not want that! Who does not want God to make you a sign that nobody can stop, that no one can cut off! That is the way it was with David. It was not possible to be David’s enemy and live. Nobody could stop King David. Here is the same promise at the end of Isaiah 55 to every person who says yes to the covenant of Sure Mercy. God says that He will make us a sign that cannot be cut off. That was the first element of the promise of the covenant of Sure Mercy to David. In this chapter God invites us to say yes to the same covenant and then we get the same promise. He will make us a sign that no one can cut off. We are going to look like David in the earth! Religion often keeps people out of all that God intends for them. To neglect such great promises would be tragic. Let’s memorize Isaiah 55. Plant it in our spirit until it comes up. In doing this, guess who we are going to look like in the last days? We will look like King David swinging the sword under the anointing of the Holy Spirit that no one can stop! Does it take some work? Of course it does! Farming is work! Will we say yes? Isaiah 55 is awesome seed promising an awesome harvest. The fruit of preparation will be well worth it.
