Though I received the following journal on Nov. 28, 2012, our Lord did not have me send this out generally until now.
Blessed Holy Lord Jesus. I have questions about the interview between Sid Roth and Matt Sorger. They were discussing speaking in tongues, supernatural languages. The comment was made that when Matt was speaking in tongues, he was prophesying the future. The context for this statement was Matt saying there are ways to bring the future into the present. Holy Lord Jesus, Your comments, please, on all of this.
Ben, speaking in tongues has many benefits, and one of them is prophesying the future. While the hearer, or the speaker, may not be aware of, or understand, what is being said in tongues, the heavens are activated to bring about that which is being spoken. When My people become involved, then I am enabled to be involved. Your speaking in tongues is continually releasing heavenly activity. This is why I so want all of My people to manifest, to speak in tongues - everyone benefits!
Lord, You said: "When My people become involved, then I am enabled to be involved." Please comment on Your statement.
Ben, as you are learning, rarely do I directly intercede. I choose to work through My people. I so want them to be involved in all that I do. This way brings more glory to My Father and yours!
Holy Lord, what about the part of bringing the future into the present? I need Your enlightenment.
Ben, there is a time and a place for everything. However, since I operate outside of time, I can bring the future into the present. When I find obedient sons and daughters who walk in My Spirit, I am enabled, through them, to bring the future into the present. This means that someone can be healed right now, rather than hoping for some distant point to see the healing take place.
Lord, then when we first hear or see You instruct us to do something and we are obedient to do it, this could be bringing the future into the present.
Ben, you did well to come to this conclusion. This all ties together. First, see Me, hear Me, give you My desires (John 5:19, 20, 30). When you respond in obedience, I am enabled to bring it to pass. If you do not act, then I am forced to wait for another to respond to My calling, My instructions, to bring about that which I desire. So you see, you are bringing the future into the present when you faithfully wait for Me to tell or show you what to do.
