“Therefore say to them, Thus says the Lord God: None of my words will be delayed any longer, but the word that I speak will be performed, declares the Lord God.”
No more delay.
God who has held much in his hand to be given, when He sees us ready to receive and steward with the right heart and motivation, turns the hour glass to pour out His resources from heaven to us on earth.
The alignment to receive is only constricted by the enemy.
Our confusion and sense of things in the balance waiting which way to tip as a seesaw is what is making it seem like in name only and not reality.
Just as the rain falling in May made it feel like we had not tipped into summer yet other than in name.
God is in control and has given plenty of evidence of making a way where there is none for what Is His will and desire.
One being the example of parting the Red see for His people to cross and escape their pursuers who were halted by the reverse.
The power of the drills which tunnel through the land regardless of rocks or landslides en route allowing nothing to withstand our way forward immediately and evermore a contemporary image of this power and strength.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.”
It is His promise and His desire is to resource and provide for all our needs.
It is His desire for us to receive with open hands and with thanksgiving always.
He never changes and remains the source of our inheritance. The enemy influences on us and the world robs and delays.
God waits for us to be ready with eyes fixed on Him.
He withholds only so that we will not repeatedly squander His provision and resources.
Also we saw the children in the wilderness circled in and out of blessing by blocking the flow with their complaint, moaning and thankless hearts.
God’s store houses are full and ready to be unlocked.
Thankfulness and obedience unlocks a mighty provision.
God reminds us of His promise to the Israelites of land, milk and honey provision and inheritance for them and the the gentiles.
The early church and the church that followed has benefitted in that promise but much has been squandered where it has not hosted His glory but instead it has become infiltrated with the schemes of the enemy.
Wealth has fallen into the hands of the wicked. What was consecrated become fouled. What should have been fruitful to fruitless. Abundant harvests reduced to little. Much lost and removed squandered.
‘The days grow long, and every vision comes to nothing’? “
God’s new word is: No more delay and to Give back.
‘Thus says the Lord God: I will put an end to this proverb, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel.’ But say to them, The days are near, and the fulfillment of every vision. ‘
Nothing will be off limits or a no go zone . Nothing will stand in the way. There is open access.
The door is opened when there is understanding and opened hearts. Where there is no longer a purpose for acquisition being for the ego, the self promotion and control. Where the season is purposed on acquisitions for others, family, kingdom’s.
When God’s kingdom has been established in our hearts.
Angels will release then what has been withheld and bless us to receive what God has stored up for us.
The kingdom of God will be increased on earth as in heaven.
The illustration shows the hour glass tipped and aligned and ready to flow. The sand represents His resources and provision. The constriction of restraining represents the enemy holding restraining when in the balance and not in alignment. The bottom reciprocal is the awaiting world. The hour is now in Alignment for God to release and the world to receive and for light to push back the darkness.

For there shall be no more any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel. For I am the Lord; I will speak the word that I will speak, and it will be performed.
