Trees of Righteousness
Recently the Lord showed me great trees that touched heaven in their time. The Lord cut them down and made pulpwood out of them. Then they were put into press and made into scrolls. The Bible is their testimony. They were dread champions in their times; they championed the cause for the Lord. They left a great inheritance for us because without us they couldn’t be made perfect.
(Hebrews 11:39-40 Amp) And all of these, though they won divine approval by [means of] their faith, did not receive the fulfillment of what was promised, because God had us in mind and had something better and greater in view for us, so that they [these heroes and heroines of faith] should not come to perfection apart from us [before we could join them].
The Holy Spirit is calling for those who would champion His cause now to grow up and touch heaven and champion His cause in their lifetime. These are the dread champions that will stand up against the enemy like these mighty champions of the past did in their time.
They left us a legacy! Now let us take up our cross and follow Him beginning where these dread champions left off.
(Psalm 12:1 Amp) HELP, LORD! For principled and godly people are here no more; faithfulness and the faithful vanish from among the sons of men.
Their lives are now scrolls written in the word of God for our instructions. The Lord is raising up other dread champions to champion his cause like David. He was a dread champion.
(Psalm 89:19-20 Amp) Once You spoke in a vision to Your devoted ones and said, I have endowed one who is mighty [a hero, giving him the power to help--to be a champion for Israel]; I have exalted one chosen from among the people. I have found David My servant; with My holy oil have I anointed him.
July 3, 1984 the Lord visited me for half an hour. He asked me to pray scripture to Him and ask for three things. The Lord said He would answer them in that order.
The first thing that I prayed was Psalms 12:1.
The second thing that I prayed for was to help the church overcome their unbelief so that their faith would not fail.
The third thing that I prayed for was power.
I believe that we have already seen the Lord answer the first two things that I had prayed for. Now we are getting ready for the third answer to take place.
