I was dead, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and Hades. Write therefore...Rev.1v.18 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven...Matt.16v.19
The coming revival requires scribes: writers to chronicle the miracles and wonders. The writing will also inspire ripples and waves of new miracles as faith is increased and multiplied. The word will be published to all the people, as the Book of Esther says. This morning I believe the Lord would remind us that the Cross has already unlocked the doors blocking the expression of your creativity.
Whether it is a lack of discipline, education or time, God's present-hour anointing is furnishing what is needed to get the job done. As usual I am "preaching to the choir" and exhorting my own will to rise up. God has been speaking to me about writing more than this daily blog and I have been telling Him I "be not able" in these busy days.
But, oh my friends, we are at a mountain-top, a crest of a creative surge of His Spirit being poured out on all flesh. He is commissioning every gift within you for active duty. During a war, a government can take over an airline. The Living God is enlisting the aid of the best ( and yet unborn) within you! Let me share a poem of mine that I just found in old journal. It is about a heathen woman named Rizpah ( means: black dove), a former concubine of King Saul, who spread sackcloth on a rock to stay ( for months!) with the unburied bones of her two royal sons. 2 Sam. 21v.10.
Did Rizpah learn to dance in worship
Up there on the rock alone?
Hard steps for Saul's black-dove dancer!
Could David's God be God alone?
You're got the keys of the kingdom. Now, write!
