Time to Seek the Lord
(week 43/03)
Olubi Johnson

Hosea 10:12 (KJV): Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

We are on the verge of the greatest manifestation of the power and glory of God the world has ever seen.

The Church is now in the 3rd. day: the third millennium from the birth of Christ and is now being perfected (Luke 13.32).

This perfect Church will now demonstrate the glory of God as it was in the life and ministry of Jesus (Jn. 2.11) as she reaches and manifests the fullness of the stature of Christ (Ephesians. 4.12-15).

By entering into the third day the Church has entered into the Promised Land, a type of the perfection and fullness of Christ, and is undergoing a second circumcision to walk daily in the fear and the love of God.

The time between the undergoing of the second circumcision and the manifestation of the fullness of the glory and power of God is the time to seek the Lord before He comes to rain righteousness upon the Church.

It is vital to seek the Lord now because the coming of the Lord in His Church in glory, power and righteousness will be like a refining fire that will burn up all that is wood, hay and stubble (1Corintians. 3.12-15) and refine all that is gold and silver.

Malachi 3:1-3 (KJV): Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to this temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:

And he shall sit as a refiner and purifer of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

Isaiah 33:10-14(KJV): Now will I rise, saith the LORD; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself.

Ye shall conceive chaff, ye shall bring forth stubble: your breath, as fire, shall devour you.

And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.

Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and, ye that are near, acknowledge my might.

The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

Seeking the Lord by making the decision to walk daily in the fear and love of God, prayer in the spirit and balanced bible reading, will cause you to turn from transgression and so qualify you to be gold or silver so you will be refined rather than destroyed (1 Corinthians. 5.5) in the imminent coming of the Lord of which we speak: His coming in glory and power in us as it was in Christ (John. 14.12).
