6th Day of “Stepping Beyond the Veil Fast”

The Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple.

Our prayer and fasting focus for today is Malachi 4:1-3.

For BEHOLD, the day is coming, burning like an oven. Malachi 4:1

There is coming a day that the church, the ekklesia, will burn with the Fire of God again, we see it rising up all over the earth already. The Glory of The Lord will fill the earth, its becoming a contagious fire, burning like an oven, like a refiners fire.  Our God is a consuming fire, and as on the Day of Pentecost, this fresh baptism of His Fire will bring with it holiness.

God is a Holy God, and when we are consumed by the Baptism of Fire, anything unholy can’t stand in that presence in us. Malachi 4:1 says that on that day anything wicked will be burned up. If there be anything unholy, wicked in our lives, our fleshly nature, soulish nature will be burned up. Purified as in a refiners fire. And those whom we come across to minister to, the fire of God will burn out the wickedness in them…we will see deliverance, healing, signs, wonders and miracles take place because the Fire of Righteousness, the Glory of The Lord, is risen upon you.  Malachi 4:2 & Isiah 60:1

The focus of this fast is to step beyond the veil of our fleshly, soulish nature, and to live from our spirit man. As we yield to the consuming fire of Holy Spirit and deny the flesh in all its wants and deeds, and lay them down as a living sacrifice and align our hearts and minds with the mind of Christ Jesus there is a transformation occurring, a conforming to the likeness and nature of Christ Jesus.  A paradigm shift of living from heaven to earth instead of living from earth trying to figure out how to get into the promises of heaven.

Malachi 4:2 …to you who “fear” My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise…

  • Fear: stand in AWE of, Bow, adore
    • Once again, those who SEEK His face, who are awestruck with The Lord, aligning themselves with the sound of heaven, crying Holy, Holy, Holy, their hearts never ceasing in pursuit.
  • Sun of Righteousness:
    • Fire of Holy Spirit, the consuming One, The Glory Light of Jesus,  will arise on you, suddenly come.
  • Arise: to Irradiate: to shed rays of light upon; to appear Colossians 3:4…when Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with/IN Him.;
    • The Glory of The Lord will arise upon you, with healing in His wings.
  • Healing: attend to, care for, make sound, whole
    • We come into the place of the full provision of Heaven, that place of being made whole and sound. Taken care of and attended to under His wings.
  • Wings: Covering, envelope, cloak, hiding place, protection and shelter, a place of refuge, secret place. WOW, need I say more : )
    • Justin Abraham says it this way,  “It’s becoming clear now. We stand fully identified in the New Creation. The old has gone. The new has arrived. It surrounds us and envelops us. Heaven is at hand. If we only take time to stop and breathe it in, we find God everywhere, hidden in plain sight. This is transformation. Transformation in the Presence. Not learned but infused. Not driven but drunk. Allowing through our powerful choices to “turn to the Lord”. Center on true Reality. Not distance but Mystic Union. I am in Him. He is in Me. We are One.”

Malachi 4: 2 continues to say, …and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves.

  • Go out/forth: means to make fertile, bring to life, bring about promised seed, grow
    • As we walk IN the spirit we will become more fertile and bring life and bring about the promises of God not only in our lives but to others.  Will cause others to grow as well as ourselves.
  • Grow: Spread, enlarge, lengthen, strengthen, expand, be grown fat…(with The Glory of The Lord)
    • There will be an enlarging and strengthening in The Glory, expansion will take place…a breaking forth…
      • Isaiah 54:2-3 Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings Do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes, for you shall expand to the right and to the left…
  • Stall-fed: to keep confined so as to fatten up; feed; nourish, take care of, tend to
    • In this place of captivation, we don’t have to strive, but rest in His ability, (The vine nourishing the branch. John 15).
      • To be captivated by Him is to be IN His dimensions…IN HIM. The Kingdom of Heaven is so opposite of the earthly realm. I looked up confine, it means unable to leave a place (who would want to) captive, boundary, or border, frontier…this is so good. Being IN Christ Jesus is a great frontier yet uncharted and unknown, we will spend eternity exploring the endless mysteries of Him. I find myself truly CAPTIVATED by Jesus more and more every day. And yearning to go beyond the boundaries of this earthly soulish understanding and Into His great frontier.

Fire of Burning come, let the wickedness of flesh that keeps us from stepping IN be like ash beneath our feet.
