"KAIRÓS! TIMING OF GOD!... LEARNING HOW TO WAIT IS NECESSARY!...
IF YOU THINK THAT THE VISION (PROMISE, VICTORY), THAT GOD HAS PROMISED YOU IS TAKING TOO LONG TO BE FULFILLED ,
THIS WORD IS FOR YOU!
"GOD IS NEITHER LATE NOR EARLY!!!
HE DOES EVERYTHING BEAUTIFULLY, IN HIS OWN TIMING! (KAIRÓS =-RIGHT TIME - COMPLETE).
"The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as SOME understand slowness,..." (2 Peter 3:9a)
"The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." .(2 Peter 3:9)
This verse says that even if SOME think God is taking too long, He ISN'T taking too long, but because of His patience HE is waiting that SOME (the same who think they are waiting too much...) come to repentance and not perish.
(Repentance means CHANGE OF MINDSET AND ATTITUDE)
We can see then that while we "wait" God is working on our behalf and in our mind through His Holy Spirit, in order to transform us completely, through the renewal of our mindset, and consequently our attitudes(our way of acting). Leading us to produce works of faith, without which nobody can inherit anything. Nevertheless, nobody can experience anything that God has planned without these works of faith.
" Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.". (Romans 12:2)
Remeber that when the people of Israel left Egypt, they could have entered the promised land in forty days, however it took them forty years, because of their unbelief and murmuring.
"For forty years—one year for each of the forty days you explored the land—you will suffer for your sins and know what it is like to have me against you.. (Numbers 14:34)
The problem was that God was not ready to fulfill what He'd promised. God is always ready. However, they (the people of Israel) weren't ready to inherit the promised land. God could have destoyed them all right there, in that moment; due to the breaking of the covenant. On the other hand, He didn't do it because He is PATIENT! He waited for forty years for a new generation to be established so that the vision,the dream and the promise could be fulfilled. He restituted the remaining, Joshua and Caleb, in the place of the murmuring ones, a new generation that, like them (Joshua and Caleb), had ANOTHER SPIRIT (heart, mindset). Therefore, they entered the promised land.
But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it. (Numbers 14:24)
WE HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO WAIT , IN GOD,THROUGH THE TIME OF GOD! (KAIRÓS = Opportune time - right time - complete time).
UNDERSTANDING THE "TIME FACTOR" IN ALL AREAS OF LIFE
The Bible says that there is a time for all things:
I said to myself, I will bring into judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time to judge every deed. ". (Ecclesiastes 3:17)
For example: In agriculture, there is a right time for planting and a right time for reaping each kind of fruit. This needs to be severely respected so that the harvest may be safe (so that it doesn't get lost).
The problem is that everyone wants to reap quickly what they desire. However, not everyone respects the time of SOWING what they want to reap. I mean, if God has promised you something, at first HE will give you the seeds; and He expects you to observe the OPPORTUNE TIME (opportunity, right time) to plant the seed of what you want to reap in God. If you can't discern the right time (opportunity) to sow, you will not have anything to reap at the harvest time.
*The kind of seed defines WHAT you are going to sow. SOWING one thing and expecting to reapsomething else is TRYING to mock God. This is NOT possible!
For instance: Many want to reap professional and ministerial success, etc.. However, they don't sow the seeds of success, which are: excellence, effort, dedication, competence, commitment... We know that, without planting these seeds we can't reap success, not matter how gifted and talented we may be.
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. (Galatians 6:7)
The Creator has determined that ALL produced according to their kind (Genesis 1:12),(Genesis 1:25).
Everything you plant, good or bad, will come back to you in the same kind and with more intensity.
They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind...."(Oseias 8:7a).
* The amount you sow will determine the amount you will reap
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. . (2 Corínthians 9:6)
* The quality of your crop will define its acceptance ot not.
When you offer blind animals for sacrifice, is that not wrong? When you sacrifice lame or diseased animals, is that not wrong? Try offering them to your governor! Would he be pleased with you? Would he accept you?” says the Lord Almighty." ". (Malachi 1:8)
Whoever want to reap the best fruits must sow the best crops! The firsfruits!
Bring the best of the firstfruits of your soil to the house of the LORD your GOD. (Exodus 34:26)
THEN YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SING!: "The best of God is yet to come!... "...God has the best for me!". You will be able to sing, and declare that you will receive the best of God because you have observed the princple of the sowing, sowing the best crop in the RIGHT timing, in the right amount.Í
JUST THE WISE WILL DISCERN THE TIME OF GOD( KAIROS - right time)
Whoever obeys his command will come to no harm, and the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure. (Ecclesiastes 8:5)
When we talk about understanding , discerning the RIGHT TIME for each thing, we have to take into consideration and be careful with two things: PROCRASTINATION AND
Many say: Pastor I can't take it anymore! It's taking forever!!! I don't know what to do anymore! I always say: Humm...How about you do what the Bible tells us to do in these cases? I always hear: What is it Pastor? I say: KEEP ON WAITING
For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it[a] will certainly come and will not delay ". (Habakkuk 2:3)
This is it! KEEP ON WAITING HUMBLY. Do not get angry, do not get yourself worked up and do not murmur
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in DUE TIME (kairos). " (1 Peter 5:6).
And many people tell me: Ah, Pastor...I have got no more strength... And I always say:There is no problem MY CHILD, God can also resolve it. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. ". (Isaiah 40:29).
THEREFORE: Keep on WAITING IN THE LORD! This is the answer. This is the strategy of God for us each day!!!
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31).
Like I always say: "WHOEVER WAITS, SOMETIMES GETS WEARY, THAT'S TRUE, BUT ALWAYS REACHES WHAT HE WANTS! Alleluia. KEEP ON WAITING PATIENTLY! AND GOD WILL TAKE YOU BY SURPRISE!
I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry ". (Psalms 40:1).
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, (Ephesians 3:20).
SO,BELIEVE! DO NOT GET DISMAYED!!! DO NOT YOURSELF GO AWAY, DO NOT STOP DOING GOOD, AND IN THE RIGHT TIME (KAIROS OF GOD) HE WILL DO EVERYTHING MUCH MORE ABUNDANTLY BEYOND YOUR IMAGINATION!!!
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9).
Those who go out weeping,carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them". (Psalms 126:6).
Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. (James 5:7).
You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. . (Hebrews 10:36).
THEREFORE, BELOVED, PERSEVERE IN DOING THE WILL OF GOD. AND AFTER DOING IT, YOU WILL JUST NEED PATIENCE TO WAIT! FOR YOUR VICTORY WILL CERTAINLY COME IN THE KAIROS OF GOD
