The Lord has given me some insight that he wants me to share with the body of Christ. This is also considered to be a prophetic word because it’s going to be revelation for some of you, maybe not all of you, but it’s going to be revelation for some of you. I know for me, it was revelation and it comes directly out of scripture.
So I don’t know if you guys watched my previous video but previously God gave me Jeremiah 33:3 https://youtu.be/Df-2M-xOAYE specifically, to give you a prophetic word concerning that number. And since then, I have not been able to come out of that book. I didn’t understand why for a while, but God explained to me that there was more in the scriptures that he wanted to reveal to us. He wanted to reveal to those of us that had not seen this for ourselves in scripture. So this would be Jeremiah chapter 33, and it relates to what is happening in the world today, people of God, it relates to the body of Christ. It relates to the church. And the reason why God is going to use me to give you the prophetic word is because many of us are living in false hope. Many of us are living in false hope. And God is saying that some of his people are living in a fantasy world. We’re hearing things around the world as far as God is going to heal the land, God is going to make things better. Things are gonna go back to normal. All of this stuff is gonna go away and we are gonna go back to being comfortable, we’re gonna go back to the things that we used to do. And the Lord wanted me to say to you guys that that could not be further from the truth.
The world is not going back to being normal. The world is not going to get any better, people of God. God is going to continue to heal those that belong to him. He’s gonna continue to heal those circumstances that in which he chooses whatever he wills for the child of God or for that circumstance or whatever part of the world he wants to do it. But ultimately God is not going to heal the entire world. He’s not gonna do it. He’s not gonna do it. How do I know that? Because it’s in his word. He has spoken to us about it previously. Hallelujah. Now with that being said, understand people of God. And I have to keep reiterating this because God is not a God that brings forth confusion to his children. The Bible tells us that God didn’t give us a spirit of fear. And the Lord has to continuously remind us that when he is implementing a warning when he’s implementing words or prophetic insight or anything that he wants to speak to his church about, the intent of it is to give us the knowledge that we need to pursue our walk with him. The purpose of it is to equip us. The purpose of it is to protect us. The purpose of God giving us insight, the revelations, and the warnings is to give us what we need to continue to endure the walk with Jesus Christ until the end of time.
And so he proudly does this. He does it out of love and compassion to give us all that we need. He doesn’t have to reveal everything to us, that’s not his intention. But what he does reveal to us is for the purpose of equipping the saints so that we have all that we need to be successful to enter into the gates of heaven. Hallelujah, God is still going to continue to protect us because we have the Psalm 91 promise. You guys know that. God is gonna continue to sustain us, right? God is even going to continue to provide provision for his children. That means breakthrough, finances, blessings, promises. God is going to continue to extend his grace and his mercy and his love for as long as he permits it in our lives. But despite these things, people of God, the world will not get any better, period. The world is not going back to the way it used to be. And this is what God is using me to do. He’s trying to get us to focus now on life after this life. God wants us to prepare for our ultimate destination, which will be eternity in heaven. God wants us to not be stuck in this world today because this is gonna end, guys.
The Bible says that our lives are, but a whisper. We should be preparing for eternity. And that is what God wants us to focus on. He’s not saying don’t enjoy life, he’s not saying to cop out on the assignments that he’s given us, he’s not saying to give up and be depressed. No, he’s not saying that, but he’s saying that as we are walking this life here on earth and enjoying the things that he’s giving us here on earth, we need to be focused on our future. We need to be keeping in mind that this life here too shall pass and that we need to be ready to walk into the gates of heaven. He wants us to think about these things, not to be blinded of these things, to exercise our wisdom and understand that at the end of the day, people of God, this world, as the Bible prophesized, will get worse until the return of Christ. And it’s not anything to be mad about. It’s not anything to be sad about. It’s not anything to be fearful about, but we should be happy. The Bible says that we should be anticipating the return of Christ. We should be getting ourselves ready for his return, though we do not know the date or the hour. We should be happy that one day soon we are going to go back to be with Jesus.
People of God, the land is not going back to normal. He already revealed this to us in his word. He already revealed it. And so when God asked me to go back to Jeremiah 33 again to study, he began to show me something new in the scripture something that I never saw before. And God showed me in Jeremiah 33 that normalcy of the world had already left during that time. Normalcy had already left the world and the church was already being held captive during the time of Jeremiah. And when God was speaking about restoration during that time for Israel, he was talking about the future. And when God was talking about the future, here it is. Here’s the revelation. He was talking about the millennium reign of Jesus Christ. God says to repeat that. God showed me in Jeremiah 33 that normalcy had already left the land, it had already left. And that the church, the body of Christ was already in captivity. And when God was speaking about restoration for Israel, he was talking about the future, but when he was talking about the future, he was talking about the millennial reign of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah.
So, guys, we are not going to read the entire chapter of Jeremiah 33, but we will touch upon some verses. So if you have your Bibles, get them because God wants me to show you some things. He wants me to show you how he was able to show me this in his word. Jeremiah 33 starts off by speaking to Jeremiah. God is speaking to Jeremiah about the future of Israel. And so we’re gonna start with verses one through two and I want to read. It says more over the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah the second time while he was yet shut up in the court of the prison saying, thus sayeth the Lord, the maker thereof, the Lord that formed it to establish it. The Lord is his name. So people of God versus one through two already show us what we’re dealing with today. We can already that Jeremiah is in a prison, he’s in a prison and he’s confined to a city that the book of Jeremiah previously talks about the Babylonian army invading. Why is this happening? Because the people of God rebelled against God during that time. They sinned against God, they idolize and they worship other gods. They were out of alignment with the will of God. So if we stop here, people of God, we can already see the resemblance of this today in our world. How? Let’s break it down.
Jeremiah, the prophet of God was God’s chosen vessel. He was God’s chosen one. He represented the Church and we are God’s vessels and we represent the church, correct? Some of us are prophets. Some of us are pastors, teachers, et cetera. And what is happening presently in the world, we are being mocked, we’re being silenced. We’re being persecuted. Why? Because of our obedience to God, because of the assignments that God has given us to do because we stand for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah. And then also we can see the resemblance of the so-called believer. Back in that day, God said that his children sinned against him, they rebelled against him. That is happening today. We have many people that profess to live for God, to love God that professes to be saved. But yet when you close the door, they’re behind the scenes living Lukewarm lifestyles, going to the club all and Friday, showing up for church on Sunday. Hallelujah. And we even have people that go even further than that and they mock God, they lie on God. We call those false prophets. We have people that rebel and sin against God every single day. Praise the Lord. Can you see this guys? Can you see this today? Let’s move on.
God wants to really show us the resemblance of the time then when he was speaking to what’s going on right now today. If we go to verse four through five, it says for thus sayeth the Lord, the God of Israel concerning the houses of this city and concerning the houses of the kings of Judah, which are thrown down by the mount and by the sword, they come to fight with the Judeans, but it is to fill them with the dead bodies of men, whom I have slain in mine anger and in my fury and for all whose wickedness I have hidden my face from. Praise the Lord. So as you can see guys, these verses tell us what the state of Israel and Judah were at that time. That is the same shape that we are in today. The verse is also revealed to us, people of God, that the Lord had already made his final decision. God had already made his decision about the Judeans being defeated by the Babylonian army. He had stated in scripture that he was not going to allow for Judah, for Israel to win, but that he was going to allow the Babylonian army to overtake them. And as a result, death was going to occur, bodies were gonna be piled up in the houses and some people were gonna be exiled. Some people were going to be in prison. Hallelujah.
God himself the Bible says, sent the Babylonians to attack his own people. Why? Because the Bible says that his own people rebelled against him. They sin against him. How many of you all are seeing this today? Do you not see this happening in our world today? God’s people during that time were full of falsehood. They were experiencing wars. Are we not experiencing wars? Are we not experiencing the world? The governmental system trying to take over? Are we not experiencing and seeing the new world order coming into manifestation? Are we not these things? Are we not experiencing starvation? Are we not experiencing high levels of death? Hallelujah. This is what’s happening in the world today. And it is for these reasons that the world is not going to get any better? This nation is not going to get any better. God is not going to heal the land. Praise God. God has already decided per Jeremiah chapter 33, verses one through five. We just read it. That the church will be in prison during this time, Hallelujah, with provision, of course, because remember we belong to God and the promises and the blessings and whatever God wants to bring us during this time in the earth, he will bring it to us because we belong to him. We are rendered to him.
But at the end of the day, we are prisoners in this world. The Bible says that we are in the world, but we are not of the world. Just like Jeremiah. He had to prophesy from a prison, but it was with provision. God was providing for him during that time. And for those of us that are in sin and rebellion, the Lord promises that death will come. That destruction will come. That exile will come. This is the present state of our nation. This is the present state of the world. Praise God. But guys watch this. Now in the same chapter that God declared destruction for Israel, God also promises restoration. He promises peace and he promises healing for his people. Now I remember, I don’t know about you, but when I first read this chapter 33, I was thinking that Jeremiah, since he was in the past, and when God was speaking of restoration in the future, that God was talking about my time or my children’s time or my grandchildren’s time. But then as I was reading, God began to reveal to me. He said, oh, beloved, oh Shaneika your way of thinking has been so narrow. He said I was talking about the future of the church. And then I heard God say something even more profound. He said Shaneika, not all healing, not all restoration, and not all of my promises are gonna come to pass in your lifetime. Oh my God. I need to say that again.
The Lord said your way of thinking was so narrow when you were reading these verses in Jeremiah 33. When I was talking about restoring my church, I was talking about the future of the Church and I needed you to understand that not all restoration is going to come to pass in your lifetime. Yes. I’ll give you small restorations. I’ll give you small breakthroughs. I’ll give you things to get you through your days in the earth. But my ultimate restoration for my church will not take place until the future. God said my promise to bring health, to bring a cure, to bring peace, to bring truth will surely come to pass when Jesus returns to reign. And when Jesus returns to reign, he will give his beloved bride, the church, an abundance of peace and blessings and healing and restoration. Hallelujah. That is what God said to me as I was reading the text. We’re not gonna read them, but in verses six through nine of 33 of Jeremiah, God is also talking about bringing Israel and you to back to their land, giving them grace and blessings, and forgiving them of their sins, which was the first indicator to me as I was reading it, that God was referring to the millennium. He was referring to the millennium. When he said that he was gonna bring restoration to the land.
What really sealed the deal for this us this, in verse 11, it says the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say praise the Lord of hosts for the Lord is good for his mercy endure forever and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord for I will cause to return the captivity of the land as at the first, sayeth the Lord. Praise God. So the verse speaks for itself. It tells us that we will be in the presence of Jesus, him being the groom and us, we being the bride. This is the time in which God is speaking of the ultimate restoration. This is the millennial reign. And so God is saying that this is what he wants us to be looking forward to. Not that we lose hope in the earth, no, because God will never leave us nor forsake us. God is gonna provide for everything that we need. And if there’s any promises that God has given us here, God will release them. If there are any blessings that God promised to give us, we’re gonna get them. If there’s any breakthrough, God is gonna release it.
But what the Lord is trying to get us to understand is that these are temporal things. These are things that will pass away and God needs for us to focus on the ultimate place, which is eternity. God wants us to anticipate our future home, restoration forever, permanently, permanent healing, permanent peace being in the presence of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and savior. God says we must prepare for that because that is what will come. We are very close.
