Hosea 6:2 – 3
After two days will He revive us; in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
Every move of God has finished with an ebb, a denomination. All men, even God’s “Generals” have all fulfilled the word of God which says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” That is the ultimate, the glory of God. We all “fall short of the glory of God.”
Many of the Church of today are still in two thirds, that is Pentecost – meeting man’s needs instead of moving in to Tabernacles, three thirds, meeting God’s glory. God is governed by one thing, His glory.
Pentecost brought us to two thirds, but we are entering in to the “fullness of times.” 1 – Passover, 2 – Pentecost, 3 – Tabernacles. The underlying principle is Tabernacles, the third third. God will fulfil and fill full in Tabernacles. Tabernacles is for the glory of God.
If God has dictated three, then two will never do the job! Pentecost introduced it but did not have the power to produce. What is the third third? I know nothing higher than the love of God. It is new wine! It is fullness, in His presence is fullness of joy! It produces fruit. First the bud, the bloom, the blossom and then comes the fruit. Even when the fruit is developing, unless it comes to fullness, you have nothing.
We have entered in to the season of the third third, the third day. Many people never get beyond winning souls, “Oh!..if only I could get this soul saved.” But the ultimate is that God requires His glory and if souls are not operating to the glory of God, they better not operate at all.That is the goal……His glory.
“You were once in darkness but now you are children of light…” It is Christ in you! Through Jesus we have His ability to touch others. God is asking for obedience, yield and be His channel every day.
There is so much more in a “much more” salvation. He saves us to the uttermost. “After two days will He revive us, in the third day He will raise us up, and we shall live in His sight.” Something is coming!……and there shall be no ebb!
“For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie, though it tarry, wait for it, for it shall surely come…..”
