The nine of us created a spiritual history, but it came at a price; the price of loving these captives far more than ourselves! This unusual ship was still with us, suspended above ground, as we conveyed those souls into the ship, one at a time, in an orderly manner.
Upon completion of this task, we ascended with the ship through the tunnel we had taken. I was feeling an intriguing sensation knowing that we were on our way to a better place. Then something beyond my wildest imagination happened next… it was a war game! It was beyond a rescue mission to a metamorphosis!
War Game: Serious Play
King David, the captain of these elite—conveyors of hope—rescued the slaves and charted the course of our unusual ship into a victorious upward move towards the edge of the earth. As we were on the verge of coming out of the dungeon, I saw that fluid beast that had earlier destroyed an entire ship pacing at an alarming speed toward us from somewhere I can’t really describe. What I do know is that it appeared ahead of us and in my utmost disbelief rolled the sea just like a carpet! It was like in fantasy movies… Unbelievable!!!
I must have felt what the stiff-necked individuals among the liberated Jewish nation felt when at the Red sea during Pharaoh’s advance — disbelief, shock, numbness, astonishment…, there are so superlatives capable of describing the feeling. The beast’s potency in magic, sorcery, and witchcraft was about to bring our ‘victorious exodus’ to an abrupt end. But while his tactics made our ship immobile at the bank of the sea unable to sail onshore, King Da’vid gave us an instruction to never ever give up but rather ride-on for the sake of these lost sheep. Without questioning, we rode on, but as soon as we did that a sudden flame-of-fire (like a highway) came from heaven, set itself under our ship to carry us high into the sky flying. It was a revered scene — our ship flew, amazing!!! Farfetched, it flew high above the now dry expanse of sea-land and far above the reach of the enemy’s coup.
It was as if as long as we had the spiritual sensibility to make sure we don’t lose God’s greatest property in our ship, we were guaranteed His innovative winning [war] strategy. As leaders, find a need and fill it, then go beyond building a personal rapport, for business purpose, to turning your stakeholders into venture strategists for their communities. Perhaps a herculean task but, I believe, this is what guarantees His heaven-based productivity; with profit as reward
This task of making God’s asset better than how you first met them would always move the hand of God on your behalf
And so we flew to safety, onto another Island where our ship could move on that Island’s sea. But lo, this enemy sneaked by and did the same thing, with sorcery or something. Unfazed by his petty devices, another flame-of-fire from heaven came with AUTHORITY to lift us up once more as we flew to a safe Island. Ridiculous as it may sound the enemy came the third time and did the predictable, as if running out of ideas or simply programmed to be a pest.
I think that’s what the devil is – a promising two-faced, ‘father of lies’ who does one thing annoyingly and perfectly well, (from dispensation-to-dispensation, I mean from era to era); although with few helps from man’s constant self-made cultures and innovations. Nevertheless, as seen here in this flight, every reformation in each dispensation/era isn’t driven on a linear convenient path, but rather on a painful pressing path that is based on a strong convictions and irrevocable faith.
I tell you this truth that those eras of uncertainties had to be challenged when we convincingly took the first step, by Faith, thereby allowing God to do His part with revealed unopposed opportunities (that FIRE) that did made us win and win well. God’s input/foresight is like FIRE.
Only the LORD of host (that is, the One whom everything in heaven and on earth obeys in unison) produces earth-saving FIRE (breakthrough healing and creative innovations)!!! Can you carry that FIRE? If you can carry God’s FIRE, you will become His Innovator, forever!
Our collaborative efforts were outclassed by the genius of this God when He cut short the nonsense excitement off the face of that curse to humanity—Satan. Satan should have known better of his inevitable fall—”shame” and “defeat”. If you play with God’s FIRE (Innovative works), you will get burnt!
Why? Because God’s salvation plans—which is older than the earth—cannot be stopped!!! Not even by our bond, as single impenetrable unit of innovators. We couldn’t have invented that style or game. It is all for the Master strategist’s honour, power and glory, through His son Jesus Christ, our LORD and Saviour.
And that was when at his fourth attempt, another flame-of-fire came and took us up into the heavens journeying into a beautiful city called, Zion City. Its streets were of gold, its towering and glittering architectural structures would definitely enhance creative potential and opportunities, its peaceful scenery would more than in a blink of an eye perform evidence of physical healing on sick bodies, everything this city had was…
P.S. Part 5 would wrap up the journey… I’ll keep you posted. Till then, reflect on the spirit of these messages and get ready for what would change your life for best.
With JESUS’ joy, DAVID C. OMOAREGBA is “perfectly” painting the beauty of God’s adventure for mankind (for the next 1000 years); as far as a generation can chew.
