As we move into year 2020 (a new decade) it is important to understand that we cannot override spiritual laws (on any level) without a negative consequence. The consequences for not keeping the Word of God will consistently work against us and even nullify all positive confessions and prophecy. A word from God about our destiny requires compliance with His Word. A life opposite of what God requires (righteousness and holiness) to birth a prophecy will result in its annihilation. However, if we want to stay in God's will and have His favor in our lives, we must remain faithful and allow His Word to “reform” our spirit, soul, and body daily. If God’s Word doesn’t keep us in spiritual reformation (daily mind renewal), Satan will reform our mind to his ways of being and doing and we will become devoured by his demonic assassins (evil spirits).

For example, Josiah was a king whom God honored because he walked in the ways of the Lord. During his reign, he destroyed the demonic alters of Baal, graven images, Asherah poles, and all things related to witchcraft and idolatry. Josiah purified the land and the temple of God. He also appointed workers to repair the Temple of the Lord Almighty that was damaged by prior kingship. In the restoration process, Hilkiah found the Book of the Law in the Lord’s Temple (that was written by Moses) and handed it off to Shaphan. Shaphan took the scroll to King Josiah and read to him what was in it. When Josiah heard what was written in the Law of God, he tore his clothes in despair because they had not done everything that God’s Word said to do to be in right standing with Him. Josiah also realized that God’s anger had been poured out on them because their ancestors did not obey the Lord.

Josiah gave orders to Hilkiah and a few others to go to the Temple of God and speak to the Lord for him and all the remnant of Israel and Judah. Josiah also asked them to inquire about what was written in the scroll that was found. So Hilkiiah and the others consulted with prophetess Huldah. She confirmed God’s anger against them and the pending disaster/curses on the people and city.

Prophetess Huldah also sent this message from God to Josiah: “because you humbled yourself and tore your clothes in despair, wept before Me in repentance, I have decided to forfeit the promised disaster until after you die and are buried in peace.” After this Word from God, Josiah gathered all the people of Judah and Jerusalem in the Temple of God and he read to them the entire Book of the Covenant that was found in the Lord’s Temple. Josiah took his place as king and renewed the covenant in the Lord’s presence. He and all the people vowed to obey the Lord and keep all His commands, laws, and decrees. In addition, Josiah continued to remove all the idols from the entire land and required everyone to worship the Almighty God. Throughout the rest of Josiah's life, the people did not turn from their worship of God alone (see 2 Chronicles 34). 

Here’s a prophetic word: In order for us to succeed in 2020 and beyond as Believers, we must destroy the idols (and all ungodly things) that take the place of God in our lives and allow His Word to bring reformation to our spirit, soul, and body. There is no success in Christ (on any levels), when we operate outside of God's original intent (which is His commands, laws, and decrees). Righteousness, holiness, and obedience are still requirements! For the Lord God says: “humble yourselves before Me and REPENT (change your mind and return to Him) before My grace runs out and destruction becomes your portion.”

We will never get God’s results if we refuse to abide by His Word. Nevertheless, there’s a fix to all errors in the individual and the body of Christ as a whole: “If My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves and pray, seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and "turn" from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 AMP

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

[Let your] love be sincere (a real thing); hate what is evil [loathe all ungodliness, turn in horror from wickedness], but hold fast to that which is good. Romans 12:9 AMPC


Let everything you do be done in love [motivated and inspired by God’s love for us]. 1 Corinthians 16:14 AMP


Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NLT


COMMENTARY

The standards for real love come from its founder, the Most High God, who is the creator of this world and our example of authentic love. Because God always existed, that means love originated with Him. He is the totality of Love! When we receive the Holy Spirit, we automatically receive (His) love with the ability to walk and operate in and out of it. In order to properly love, we must copy the ways of Christ so we don’t give away the counterfeit version of love which is infatuation. Infatuation has the appearance of real love, but it cannot be trusted because its origin is superficial and satanic. In other words, anything that is artificial is not trustworthy, dependable, or sustainable. Selah!

The synonyms for infatuation are charmed, smitten, possessed, intoxicated, spellbound, bewitched, fascinated, crazy about, foolish, silly, seduced, captivated, and beguiled. None of those synonyms describe real love because infatuation is completely different from anything that real represents. Here’s a revelation: if we don’t know the character and integrity of true love, infatuation will become our seducer and way of operation. Furthermore, if we don’t know and understand God’s ways of being and doing, we will never know true love. Remember, there is no middle ground when we execute or receive love; it’s either real or fake! However, when it’s real, it comes from God. When it is fake, it comes from the enemy.

Every person on this earth was intentionally created for a divine purpose. The sooner we understand this fact, we can make our lives count based on God’s original intent (which is our purpose) for us being alive for such a time as this. We cannot understand our purpose apart from God and His standards because He is the purpose giver. In order for us to operate within our purpose, we must know His ways first because the Father’s ways of being and doing are always how we’re to carry out and operate within our purpose and our everyday lives.


Each gift God has given us is part of our reason for being alive. However, our divine purpose could very well be something different from our natural born gifts. How is that so? Because God is sovereign and can do whatever He wants to do with no limitations attached. Nevertheless, whether our divine purpose is directly related to our gifts or not, God is the giver of it all and if we pursue Him, He will reveal to us our reason for being born.


It is very important for us to focus on the pursuit of our calling in this life because time waits for no man and we all have an appointed time to leave this earth. That being said, we should never compare ourselves to anyone or allow others to change our minds about who God says we are and how we should operate. When we stand firm in our identity in Christ, nothing or no one can trick us into becoming something we’re not.


In addition, another reason why it is so important to center ourselves on who and what God called us to be is because we all have a certain kind of people who we’re called to reach. However, if we’re not in place, God will eventually have to give our assignment to another person; one who is available. Although, it is never the Father’s intention to give assignments away, we just allow ourselves to become distracted by the cares of the world (the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. See 1 John 2:16). God wants us all to lean and depend on Him because we can never go wrong living out His Word—His way! For His Word is our instruction on how to have a successful and prosperous life, both now and forever.


When it comes to the opinions of others while pursuing God’s will, it is very easy to allow them to derail us off of our destined path. However, always remember that an opinion is just an opinion, and we all have one. But in spite of following the viewpoints from people, we’re to follow God and His Word because He’s beyond opinions. For a matter of fact, He is 100% truth! But on the contrary, most people are confused about who they are and their own purpose; and if we listen to them, we will become like them—confused. Everyone has an opinion about what we should do and be in life, but it is God’s will, plan, and propose for each one of us that matter most.


Lastly, God created the world in which we live and blew His breath of life into us (see Genesis 2:7). The moment we received life, we received purpose. We also received the responsibility to find out our purpose through Christ, and focus our attention on walking it out. And because we’re stewards and not owners over every blessing, gift, etc., received from God, we can’t afford to waste anything He has given us. Stay focused on God!


P.S. “Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent) people making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity] because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:15-17 AMPC
