'GALILEE AWAKENING' Is A Call To God's Holy Remnant
We Serve a God of Impossible Things. He is The Way Maker & Chain Breaker.
One of the most miraculous demonstrations of God's power occurs in Acts 12 when Peter is supernaturally freed from prison. The bible says he had four squads of four soldiers guarding him! His wrists were bound & there was an iron city gate barred shut against him. Escape was not only futile, it wasn't even a rational thought to be had!
The Messianic Church in Jerusalem would have already been gathering for Passover at the time of Peter's arrest so news would have spread quickly. They joined together in prayer for Peter and the Lord heard their prayers!
Act 16:6-11 📖
The night before Peter was to be placed on trial, he was asleep, fastened with two chains between two soldiers. Others stood guard at the prison gate.
Suddenly, there was a bright light in the cell, and an angel of the Lord stood before Peter. The angel struck him on the side to awaken him and said, “Quick! Get up!” And the chains fell off his wrists.
Then the angel told him, “Get dressed and put on your sandals.” And he did. “Now put on your coat and follow me,” the angel ordered.
So Peter left the cell, following the angel. But all the time he thought it was a vision. He didn’t realize it was actually happening.
They passed the first and second guard posts and came to the iron gate leading to the city, and this opened for them all by itself. So they passed through and started walking down the street, and then the angel suddenly left him.
Peter finally came to his senses. “It’s really true!” he said. “The Lord has sent his angel and saved me from Herod and from what the Jewish leaders had planned to do to me!”
Acts 16 goes on to depict the praying church's amazement at Peter's miraculous freedom, and then details Harrod's disgusting demise...🤢
The story is an amazing testament to the faithfulness & love of the church during that time for one another, and God's supernatural provision to those who honor him with their faith.
All of this concludes to a verse in Acts 16:26 that says, "Meanwhile, the word of God continued to spread, and there were many new believers"... That's what it's all about, that's why we persevere! We endure because we have deep love for one another and faith that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love him, those who are called according to his purpose for them. ✝️🛐✡️
Yes we will be persecuted and some of us even killed, but despite these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loves us. So we join together, just as the first Christians of Galilee did then, we blow the shofar in Zion and we shout "Awaken remnant Bride of Christ! Purify your hearts & sanctify your lives! Be holy as Yeshua our Messiah is holy, for his heavenly Kingdom is near. Prepare yourselves for the Lord’s return!"
