The Release of God's Unsearchable Wisdom - Again!

james nesbit - gate beautiful
John Nesbit - “Gate Beautiful – The Right Time Gate”

About two months ago, I wrote a blog about the release of God’s unsearchable wisdom (posted here). Over the last several weeks, the Lord has been speaking more to me on this subject. I was compelled to continue on this topic and relay some more of what God has been telling me. I feel that there is an increase in urgency in regards to this message.

Since the first blog was written, I have had an additional experience with waking up at 3:33 am - and other similar experiences - pointing to Jeremiah 33:3. I have had similar occurrences pointing to 222, which often points to Isaiah 22:2 or Isaiah 22:22 (the key of David). This all speaking to turning away from the wisdom of men, and instead, turning to God’s unsearchable wisdom.

“Stop trusting in mere humans, who have but a breath in their nostrils. Why hold them in esteem?” ~Isaiah 2:22 (NIV)

What is the Lord saying about this? A few days ago, in the middle of the night while I was asleep, I was simply given a reference to a scripture: I Corinthians 2:5-6. After I had awakened, I looked it up. Again, it was about divine wisdom. I believe I Corinthians 2:5-6 is, among other things, a bridge between Isaiah 2:22 and Jeremiah 33:3.

“…so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power. We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.” ~I Corinthians 2:5-6 (NIV)

“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” ~Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV)

Once we enter into God’s divine wisdom and are walking in the Spirit of truth (the Spirit of Jesus, the Holy Spirit), all things are possible for us (see Mark 9:23)…and He will tell us about the future.

“For the substance (essence) of the truth revealed by Jesus is the spirit of all prophecy.” ~Revelation 19:10 (AMP)

Jesus said, “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; He will speak only what He hears, and He will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that He will receive what He will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what He will make known to you.” ~John 16:12-15 (NIV)

We know from His word that His Kingdom will overcome and destroy all others (Daniel 2:44-45). His wisdom will also destroy all earthly wisdom (see Isaiah 29:13-14 & 48:6-7).

Two Confirmations

In the days following the dream experience where I received I Corinthians 2:5-6, I received two confirming words. The first one I heard in a video, and the other I read in a book. Both involved the prophet Bobby Conner (see Bobbyconner.org).

In the first confirming word, I was recently listening to a video that described how Bobby had a very powerful experience where He approached a beautiful, glorious gate in heaven. Another woman actually had the same experience the same night. When they compared notes, she heard it called “Gateway of Glory.” Bobby heard it called “Gateway of Gold.” The woman saw an inscription on the top of the gate, but she couldn’t read it. Bobby saw an inscription on the gate as well, but he could read it. Bobby said it read, “Jeremiah 33:3.”

The second confirmation came just a few days ago and I read the last few pages of Bobby Conner’s 2014 Shepherd’s Rod. Bobby declared that we have entered a season where divine wisdom is becoming available to us in greater measure to help synchronize “the will of God with the walk of the believers.” He quoted 2 Corinthians 2:6-7.

“We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.” ~2 Corinthians 2:6-7 (NIV)

We know that Jesus is the Door. He is the Way. He is the Way. He is the Truth. He is the Life. He is the Good Shepherd. He is the Gate.

Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” ~John 10:7-10 (NIV)

Jesus is also the “Hidden Treasure” and the “Pearl of Great Price.”

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.” ~Matthew 13:44 (NIV)

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.” ~Matthew 13:45 (NIV)

We are given a gift of time and life and an opportunity on this earth. During our lives, by God’s grace, we are given an opportunity to enter into the Gate (Jesus), and to invite Him to enter into and live in us.

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” ~Revelation 3:20 (NIV)

The time will come, when our period of grace is over…when our time on this earth ends…and the great door will close. Where are you today?

Today, I felt the Lord urging me to complete this message. Earlier today, our family drove up to attend Sunday service in Skiatook, Oklahoma where Bobby Conner shared a wonderful message, “What a Difference One Day Can Make!” Behind him on the wall was the above painting of the “Gate Beautiful” by James Nesbit. Astoundingly, it is subtitled, “The Right Time Gate.”

Have you entered the Gate? Is Jesus also in you? If so, I feel compelled to encourage you with Hebrews 10:23, “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.”

However, if you have yet to make this decision, I also want to encourage you to do so today. Time is very short! We never know if this day will be our very last. The day of our Lord is near. The opportunity to enter the gate is soon drawing to a close. The time to seek Him is now!

“’In just a little while, He who is coming will come and will not delay.’ And, ’But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.’ But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.” ~Hebrews 10:37-39 (NIV)

“Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.” ~Isaiah 55:6 (NIV)

“I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.” ~2 Corinthians 6:2 (NIV)

Don’t wait for another day or a seemingly more convenient time. Today is the day!

Signs in the Heavens

Mt Sangeang and Mt Sinai
Artist’s depiction of Moses and the Israelites at Mt. Sinai, c. 1445 BC and the Mt. Sangeang eruption - May 30, 2014

In c. 1445 BC, Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt. Fifty days out, they came to Mount Sinai to celebrate the Feast of Pentecost. As Moses approached the Mount Sinai, it was, “… covered with smoke, because the Lord descended on it in fire.” “The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, and the whole mountain trembled violently.” (Exodus 19:18, NIV)

Fifty days after the resurrection of Jesus Christ there was another great trembling. “When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” (Acts 2:1-4, NIV)

On Friday, May 30, 2014, just a few days before Pentecost, something quite interesting happened. Two volcanoes began to erupt. Mount Sangeang in Indonesia erupted with immense power, sending ash 12 miles in the sky. The similarity of the pronunciation “Sangeang” to “Sinai” in the English is uncanny (Listen to it - here). Secondly, Mount Pavlov in Alaska (originating from “Paul” or “humble man”) began to erupt as well.

The Lord often gives us signs in the heavens and the earth that signify what He is doing or about to do on the earth. Could this be a sign in the heavens? I believe it very well could be. I believe we are about to be very surprised by what God is about to do on this earth in regards to the pouring out of His Spirit.

“And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the Lord has said, even among the survivors whom the Lord calls.” (Joel 2:28-32, NIV)

I believe also that the eruption of Pavlof (“humble man”) signifies the beginning of the rise the humble, God-fearing men and women; and at the same time, the humbling of the proud.

“Suddenly, in an instant, the Lord Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire.” (Isaiah 29:5-6, NIV)

“Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught. Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.” (Isaiah 29:13-14, NIV)

“Once more the humble will rejoice in the Lord; the needy will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. The ruthless will vanish, the mockers will disappear, and all who have an eye for evil will be cut down…” (Isaiah 29:19-20, NIV)

Is the time we are entering another season of Pentecost as in the earlier days? I believe not. Jesus promised that greater things are coming…and I fully expect to see it in my lifetime. I believe we are seeing an increase of this now!

“This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the Lord Almighty. ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.” (Haggai 2:6-9, NIV)

May God Richly Bless You,
