Third Day Church in His Face!
Gen 22:4 On the third day [of TRAVEL] Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance. 5 Abraham said to his servants, “Settle down and stay here with the donkey; the young man and I will go over there and worship [God], and we will come back to you.”
John 8:56 Your father Abraham [greatly] rejoiced to see My day (My incarnation). He saw it and was delighted.”
Esther 5:1 On the third day [of the fast] Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the king’s palace opposite his [throne] room. The king was sitting on his royal throne, facing the [main] entrance of the palace.
Esther 5:2 When the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, she found favor in his sight; and the king extended to her the golden scepter which was in his hand. So Esther approached and touched the top of the scepter.
Heb 12:2 [looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work].
One of the key characteristics of the Third Day Church is that God is raising this generation who will live in His sight – looking into His glorious face! It will be a church that will be prepared like Esther to enter into the Throne room of the King of kings and receive authority and favor from Him.
The Third Day Church will be looking at the Face of Jesus – the author and finisher of our Faith with the cloud of witnesses looking at us to complete all of humanity has been waiting and hoping for! Not only will we be transformed in His face, we will also receive so much revelation and glory to walk in a way that was unprecedented in church history!
As Esther decreed with the full authority and permission of the King, the Third Day Church will decree with such authority that will transform nations according to the heaven’s will! Get ready for this! Amen.
