God will return to Zion

Posted by appolus on December 8, 2013

In the time of David, at the very heart of Judah and what we now know as Jerusalem , dwelt the Jebusites in Zion. A stronghold, a seemingly impenetrable stronghold. It seems that at the heart of today’s modern Christianity, nominal Christianity, lies the Jebusites who have the stronghold of Zion. And where is the ark of God’s presence? If the enemy has a stronghold at the very center of Christendom , then surely that stronghold must be taken back if God is to have His rightful place in the hearts of His people? Within every nominal Christian lies Zion. It is either a place for God’s presence or it is a place where the Jebusites rule, where the world rules. And this place without God is a place of pride and self-dependence, a place of self-righteousness that creates a blindness to the actual condition and situation of those who dwell there.

When David was determined to take the heart of Jerusalem, the stronghold of Zion from the ungodly here is what they said to him. “You shall not come in here, except the blind and the lame will turn you away; also saying, David cannot come in here.” (2 Sam 5:6) The Jebusites were so proud and so secure in their surroundings and in their self-deception that they could never be brought down that they paraded blind and lame soldiers at the entrance to their city strong-hold to pour scorn on their enemies. It is the classic mistake of the proud who are just about to fall. The proud always insulate themselves with the comfort of their surroundings and upon the work of their own hands.

And the very next verse says “And David took the stronghold of Zion; it is the city of David.” You see, when God moves, the proud fall. And now, David transports the presence of God, the Ark, to the very heart of Jerusalem, Zion. Brothers and sister, God will return to the heart of Christendom. The stronghold of the world will come down and God will have His rightful place at the heart of His people. He is raising up from nothing, shepherd boys and men of no repute, just like David , to take back the heart of Christendom. He is raising up a generation of men and woman who are broken and contrite, refined in the fires of trials and tribulations who are zealous for His name and for His presence to take its rightful place. And then those who will come shall come.

So says Jehovah: I have returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a City of Truth, and the mountain of Jehovah of Hosts, the Holy Mountain. (Zec 8:3) God is raising up a generation of lovers of truth and they shall be called a city, a dwelling place for God to rest. This generation is so completely sold out to truth that they ” love not their lives unto death.” This is always the heart and soul of God’s remnant army which He maintains and brings forward in His own time and for His own purposes. We look back down through the corridors of time and we see that God awakens His people in every age and generation according to His own will and purpose. And here, at the end of ages, He again is calling His children to awake from their slumbers and the children of truth arise and awake to His call.

But now I will not be to the remnant of this people as in the former days, says Jehovah of Hosts. For the seed shall be blessed; the vine shall give its fruit, and the ground shall give its increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things. And it will be, as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you, and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear, but let your hands be strong.
(Zec 8:11-13)

In this day and age of lawlessness and lies, there comes forth a generation that is the only hope to a lost and dying world. This is and will be a generation who are completely sold out to the Truth even although it will cost them everything. This is the blessing of the final calling of God to the world before He returns. He has called us to, one more time, bless the nations with the truth. This generation will not be discouraged by the lies of a wicked generation but with eyes firmly fixed upon the Truth, will be bold to declare it, supernaturally bold.

God is calling His people to be unafraid and to love the truth. “Therefore love truth and peace.” (Zec 8:19) But that you, speaking the truth in love, may in all things grow up to Him who is the Head, even Christ (Eph 4:15) And with all deceit of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, so that they might be saved. (2Th 2:10) Gods people have received the love of the truth and it so burns in their bones brothers and sisters that it leads them through the dark valleys of this world to the hill of Calvary and beyond. It is for the sake of Truth that every saint lays down his life, takes up his cross, counts all loss as rubbish, that they may be found in Him, in the Truth and to be known by it.

The elder to the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth and not only I, but also all those who have known the truth, for the sake of the truth dwelling in us, and which shall be with us forever. Grace will be with you, mercy and peace from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. (2Jn 1:1-3)

Have you received the truth brothers and sisters? I believe that you have and that it burns like molten fire in your bones. We can no more deny the Truth that has been revealed to us than we could deny our own right arm. It has taken us captive and our eyes are fixed firmly upon it. This is the calling of God in this generation to this generation. Stand fast brothers and sisters, the Truth is in you and it is with you and it goes before you and is your rearguard. The Truth is your strong high tower, and the righteous run into it and they are saved. It is you life and your hope and it is your strength and it will never fail you. Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life. It is by this way and this way alone that men will come to the Father.
