06/04 Compass Guide Comments By Dr. Daniel Daves

Post by Admin on Fri Jun 07, 2013 8:10 am

4-Jun 2 Kings 7-8, Mark 11-12, Psalms 21-25, Proverbs 4

2 Kings 7:3-8 (NIV)3 Now there were four men with leprosy at the entrance of the city gate. They said to each other, "Why stay here until we die? 4 If we say, 'We'll go into the city'--the famine is there, and we will die. And if we stay here, we will die. So let's go over to the camp of the Arameans and surrender. If they spare us, we live; if they kill us, then we die." 5 At dusk they got up and went to the camp of the Arameans. When they reached the edge of the camp, not a man was there, 6 for the Lord had caused the Arameans to hear the sound of chariots and horses and a great army, so that they said to one another, "Look, the king of Israel has hired the Hittite and Egyptian kings to attack us!" 7 So they got up and fled in the dusk and abandoned their tents and their horses and donkeys. They left the camp as it was and ran for their lives. 8 The men who had leprosy reached the edge of the camp and entered one of the tents. They ate and drank, and carried away silver, gold and clothes, and went off and hid them. They returned and entered another tent and took some things from it and hid them also.

Today I want to pursue two thoughts from this morning's reading.  The timing of the Lord during times of trouble, and the power of God wielded against the enemy to save His people.

I am amazed when I read this story how bad things got before the word of the Lord was given to the king.  There was a famine in the land and the enemy had besieged the city.  Things deteriorated so bad that people were buying donkey heads, they were slaughtering the kings horses to feed to the people, and at the end, ladies had literally decided to eat their children.  Now while this had all deteriorated, Elisha the prophet was in the city the entire time.  He had nothing to say, and gave no instruction to the king.  There is also no indication that the king or anyone else was inquiring of the Lord during this time.  I personally think it would be time to fast, pray, and get ahold of the prophet for direction with great humility.  But there is no sign of that here.

On another note, four lepers who were forced outside the walls of the city (talk about rejection) made a decision.  If they go into the city, they die.  If they stay where they are, they die.  So they decided to go over the hill and surrender to the enemy nation. They realized that they might die, but things were so bad for them, they were willing to take the chance because the other two options were sure death.  

People were running out of options.  One group decides to surrender to the enemy in hopes that they can live.  Another group decides to eat their children in order to try to live another few days.  These are very desperate times indeed. The smell of death, loss, failure, and surrender is everywhere.

The king became so enraged when he saw the women eating their children that he went after the prophet Elisha.  He promised to take Elisha's head with the sword because he could nor, and would not wait for God any longer.  At that point, the word of the Lord came to the nation through Elisha.  This time tomorrow, it will all be over with. Food will be plentiful and cheap, and all your pain and suffering will be behind you. That word was so far out that the king's guard said, "No way!"

The story had an ending, just as every story ends.  A chapter closed in history, and another chapter opened.  A season ended and a new season came upon them all.  Our suffering endures for a season, and then it ends.  Every bad story turns for good if we will listen to the word of the Lord.  While we don't understand timing, be rest assured that God will cause the time, season, or the night hour to change.  Do you hear the word of the Lord for your situation?  This Shall Pass!  This season you are walking in shall come to an end.  Change is coming, and shall overtake you.  If you will endure and be patient, your season of suffering, lack, darkness, poverty, etc. will end.  Look to the Lord and ask Him for His word of direction to come and bring the change.

Coupled to this story is my second thought.  HOW would God change the season, start a new chapter, and bring Israel out of their darkness?  It happens differently every time, but in this story, God performed a great miracle specifically for His people, which they didn't know about while it was happening.  They would only see the results of it later the next day.

The four lepers came over the hill to surrender to the enemy and beg for their lives.  What they found was a camp that was totally set up with food cooking in the pots, horses tied up by the tents, and loads of food, provision and supplies sitting around the camp.  The only thing missing was the enemy.  Proverbs says, "the wicked will be removed in an instant."  I guess this was one of those instants.  The Bible says that the enemy had heard the sound of chariots, horses and enemy soldiers, and they believed that they were under attack from multiple nations at once. Therefore, they simply fled for their lives and left everything right where it was.  Now this is FEAR, confusion, and delusion.  GOD sent a delusional attack that scared the enemy from the top commanders to the foot soldiers.  They were all convinced, deluded, and in agreement that they were going to die.  They were wrong, but they were convinced anyway.  They left it all in fear for their lives.

This miracle that God provided is one that He still operates in today.  We must understand that the Heavens co-operate with us as followers of Christ today.  God sends powerful and strong delusion upon those who refuse to be saved.  It's possible that the delusion of this story could happen in various ways on earth today in order to confuse, scatter, and divide an enemy army, group, or assembly.  While our battle is not with flesh and blood in the New Testament, it's clear that flesh and blood ally themselves with enemy spirits.  God can deal with these enemy spirits, evil forces of darkness, and ruling principalities - and in doing so, will bring great confusion on those who work hand in hand with them.

Know and understand today that God can route your enemies, bring confusion and fear upon them, and delude them into thinking that they need to abandon their post, their attack, their plans, and their supplies in order to try to save their own lives.  I personally believe that we will see this action taking place in the national, military, media, educational, and political world.  Enemy forces are always trying to besiege and take over God's people. But at the proper time, God knows just what to do to strike sudden fear into the attackers.  In a great way, this is called WEALTH TRANSFER.

The people of Israel plundered the enemy camp and that next day the chapter was finished.  The season of lack was over, and food was once again cheap.  The threat was over, and God had secured a great victory for the people!  

We must be looking for the Lord's "DELUSION" upon enemy forces, as this is one way that He brings wealth transfer and changes the season of battle.

We must also be continually asking God for His Word.  He knows times and seasons and what ought to be done.  It's entirely possible that God would have brought this onslaught of the enemy much faster if the king and the people would have inquired of the Lord.  BUT God did NOT do it until the prophet Elisha prophesied and spoke the Word of God.

If this principle and Heavenly law is true, then isn't it time to start speaking the Word of the Lord and declaring it in the earth?  Wealth transfer and the start of a new chapter in our lives may be only one declaration away!  Speak the word. Declare it. Stand upon the Word of the Lord and watch what He does to bring it to pass!

Job 22:28 (KJV)28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
