Acts 17:26: Jesus has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all of the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings.
Genesis chapter 10 and 11 constitute what is known as “The Table of Nations” in the Bible.
I promise to not get in the “weeds” with this teaching. There are brilliant minds who have charted out The Table of Nations throughout the Bible in many books. If you have any questions, I refer you to those postings.
Throughout the Holy Writ, we have an indication that faith and inspiration are not concerned with the imparting of unknown facts of no spiritual importance.
My quest today was triggered and hopefully “inspired” while I was preaching Sunday morning on the seventy faithful followers Jesus sent out to go before Him into every city and place where He Himself would go. They were sent to declare and deposit the Kingdom of God (Holy Nation) into whatever city they entered. If they receive you, eat such things as are set before you. Heal the sick that are therein and say to them, the Kingdom of God is come near to you. They went from city to city declaring the King and His Kingdom has come. Because the Kingdom of God had come, they were able to work miracles in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Just as they blessed those who believed, those who would not receive them, they were told go your way out into the streets. Even the very dust your city which cling on us, we do wipe against you; notwithstanding be sure of this, the kingdom of God is come near to you. But I say to you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. (Lk. 10:1-11)
Just as Luke 10 defines the peoples of the Kingdom of God, Genesis 10 is the Table of Nations.
When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance, he separated the sons of men; he fixed the bounds of the peoples according to the number of the sons of God. For the LORD’s portion are his people, Jacob his allotted heritage… (Deut. 32:8-9)
Jewish tradition refers to global humanity as the “70 nations.” It would seem to me as it is Heaven, so it is in the earth. The seventy nations are a type and shadow of the sons of God who will inherit the earth. Also the “seventy” are a prophetic type of the sons of God of, He that overcomes and keeps my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations. (Rev. 2:26)
I ask you just as the Jews divided the earth into seventy nations under the divine order of God, Jesus sent out the seventy under the authority of the Son of God announcing His sovereign rule over the Kingdoms of the earth and His salvation to the ends of the earth?
In 1990, the call came to start a church. We officially incorporated. In retrospect, I now know that we were chosen to be a part of the ushering in of the Third Day Glory Church. At the time, I was preaching by vision and Spirit of Revelation. As in every move of God, we came under heavy persecutions. However, the Lord was more than faithful. He raised up dear Pastors, Prophets and Ministries to stand with us. Those great warriors continue to be a part of the Eldership of this ministry.
We had incredible visitations and mighty outpourings of the Glory of God in our meetings. Hindsight now reveals that without the persecution, we would never have dug in. Also, we had to be tested by persecution in order to overcome and be proven to produce fruit 30-60-100 fold.
In 1997, my husband’s company moved us to Houston, After a much needed rest and time to reflect on what had transpired in those 7-years in Baton Rouge, the Lord again directed me to start a new work here in Houston.
This came in along with the Golden Glory Revival. The Lord did not tell me that I would be a conduit of the Golden Glory, but that I was to prophesy it. I was preparing to teach on Gift of Miracles at a community Bible Study. Our friends, Barney and Joann Fuller, mailed me the book by Ruth Ward Heflin, Golden Glory. I read the book on a flight to Los Angeles. That night I awoke, sitting straight up in my bed. The room was filled with golden angels. They were all singing the song recorded by Candy Christmas, GLORY, GLORY, GLORY, THAT’S MY STORY.”
Prior to this visitation, the Lord spoke to me around November 2000, that wherever I went, I was to declare the Glory of God.
It seems that no matter where I preach in the Bible, I end up with only one message, the declaration of the Glory of God: Feast of Tabernacles, The Holy of Holies, the Mountain of the Last Days,The Overcomer, The Sons of God, The Kingdom of God, The Joseph Company, The Bride of Christ, The 144,000, The Remnant, Those who pass under the Rod, The Branch of the Lord, Those who follow the Lamb wherever He goes, Mt. Zion, New Jerusalem, etc. etc. All of this plus more tell only one story, “GLORY GLORY GLORY.
We are an apostolic ministry as well as prophetic. Our desire is to reveal Jesus Christ in the fulness of the Majesty of His Great power and Glory
“Until we all come in the unity of the faith, of the knowledge of the son of GOD, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of CHRIST.“
