An obscure passage in Jeremiah is the subject of this week’s teaching as Dr. Don G. Pickney unfolds its place in prophetic scripture.
Jeremiah 33:11 “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 [Jehovah Tsaba]: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: 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 [the former state of wealth and prosperity], as at the first, saith the LORD.”
In 2002, Pastor Don was doing some general reading in Jeremiah when this verse leaped out at him with special meaning. As He read the verse, he heard the voice of the Holy Spirit, “If you’ll celebrate with me now, says God, I will very soon celebrate with you!”
At that time, Pastor Don shared these words with the people. From that time till this, he has maintained a celebration of “The Day of Jehovah Tsaba.”
As time has progressed, over many years, we have seen global developments in every area of modern society as God fulfills this event, defined in scripture as the greatest event since God created Adam on the Earth. As prophetically spoken by the prophets, Haggai and Zechariah, all of society is being shaken as God prepares a “spoil” (plunder) for His people, the body of Christ.
How will this conversion of wealth from the world to the Church take place. What will be the “vehicle” used to bring it about? That remains a mystery as God does not reveal the details of prophetic plans ahead of their occurrence.
In this series, we will explore the mysteries of the fulfillment of the Day of Jehovah Tsaba. Will it be through the current government plan to convert our banking system from hard currency to “digital currency” where the flick of a “digital calculation” can make the difference between a “thousand” and a “million” dollars? Does God really own the banking systems of this world, with credible ability to allocate real wealth to whomsoever he pleases? When Haggai prophesied, “the glory of this latter “event” will be greater than the former,” (speaking of when Israel plundered the individual Egyptians of their heavy gold and silver jewels, and their finest apparel) we ask, “How will this event prove to be the greatest event since the creation of Adam?”
No one really knows, but we have scriptural clues for those able to discern the “line upon line, line upon line, precept on precept, precept on precept, here a little, there a little,” as spoken of in Isaiah 28:9-10.
All across most of charismatic Christianity a “global wealth conversion” is being preached and prophesied. Some assume that it will come primarily through financial “seed sowing” as spoken of in 2Corinthians 9-6-8, and in Jesus’ Luke 6:38 promise. Both of these promises, and others in similar fashion, are very powerful to aid us in living a successful life free of lust, greed and covetousness. Making God the “total source” of all of our supply, moves our focus from the temptation to covet other’s possessions or position in life, and put our complete trust in our Father, God (who’s faithfulness is beyond reproach). But that is not what is spoken of by Haggai and Zachariah (chapters 2 respectively), nor is it related to Isaiah 60 and 61, and other chapters in Isaiah that speak of a wealth conversion to the body of Christ.
As we move through this important series of teachings, get ready for much revelation!
