A Righteous Generation

Samuel_LeoI’m praying for an upright generation to be born in this earth.  In the Spirit I see a generation that will have faith in God.  They will know God and follow His ways.  They will be gracious and compassionate and conduct their affairs with justice.  They will care for the poor and needy and will defend the cause of widows and orphans.  This is my prayer that the Lord will raise up a generation that will make the Lord Yeshua known and will accomplish His purposes in the earth.  Among this righteous generation the Holy Spirit will find men and women who will live by faith, God will be exalted, proclaimed, obeyed, and God’s favor will rest on this generation.

Among this coming generation will be people who bring fulfillment of God’s promises – unity among the body of Messiah.  What a great joy and delight, as David described, “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!  It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down on the collar of his robe.” (Ps. 133: 1-2).  This unity will bring about unheard of events throughout the earth.  This generation will fulfill Yeshua’s prayer, “I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity.  Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” (John 17: 23).  Glory to God who is drawing all men to Himself by His love and mercy.  Yeshua, King of Kings, is coming back and a Spirit filled generation will be looking and waiting ready for Him with lamps burning brightly and ready to enter into the wedding supper of the Son of God.

God is victorious over sin and death.  His central purpose is to redeem His creation and in doing so bring His children into the Glory He has prepared for them.  All this is accomplished by and in Messiah Yeshua.  Only from our vantage point of these last days and by the Spirit’s revelation can we see and know this.  David looked forward to Messiah and prophesied of Him.  “I am a foreigner to my own family, a stranger to my own mother’s children; for zeal for your house consumes me, and the insults of those who insult you fall on me….They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst.” (Ps. 69: 8-9, 21).  God saw David’s heart which was devoted to  God’s purposes.  “You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.” (Ps. 63: 1).  “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.  My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?” (Ps. 42: 1-2).

This will be the theme of the righteous generation – a heart cry to live in God’s presence, body, soul and Spirit.  The world may be full of distress, dread, fear and anxiety for what is coming upon the earth.  The man of lawlessness will appear bringing confusion, darkness, and deception, but light shines in the darkness and dispels it.  The victory belongs to the Lord, He is coming soon.  The end time revival will last a generation among the generation of the upright.  “Praise the Lord.  Blessed are those who fear the Lord, who find great delight in his commands.  Their children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.  Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever.  Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.  Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice.” (Psalm 112: 1-5).

Lord, Yeshua, praise your holy name.  Let your will be done On earth and in your congregation.  We have been unworthy servants only doing our duty.  Forgive our unbelief and restore a right Spirit in us.  Let us return to you and forsake the ways of this world. We confess that we have not relied upon you nor believed your Word because we did not believe the love you proclaimed over us, even as we see your lovingkindness and mercy every day.  Lord, do not let us stay in the wilderness of our own making, but raise up a generation given wholly to You.
