Let FATHER’S Glory Come Forth

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Psalm 80:

1 God-Enthroned, be revealed in splendor

as You ride upon the cherubim!

How perfectly You lead us, a people set free.

Loving shepherd of Israel—listen to our hearts’ cry!

Shine forth from Your throne of dazzling light.

2 In the sight of Benjamin, Ephraim, and Manasseh,

stir up Your mighty power in full display before our eyes.

Break through and reveal Yourself by coming to our rescue.

3 Revive us, O God! Let Your beaming Face shine upon us

with the sunrise rays of glory;

then nothing will be able to stop us.

4 O God, the mighty Commander of Angel Armies,

how much longer will You smolder in anger?

How much longer will You be disgusted with Your people

even when they pray?

5 You have fed us with sorrow and grief

and made us drink our tears by the bowlful.

6 You’ve made us a thorn in the side of all the neighboring lands,

and now they just laugh at us with their mocking scorn.

7 Come back, come back, O God, and restore us!

You are the Commander of Angel Armies.

Let Your beaming face shine upon us with the sunrise rays of glory,

and then nothing will be able to stop us!

8–9 Remember how You transplanted us here

like a tender vine from Egypt.

You cleared the land for Your vineyard,

evicting the nations from Your land and planting us here.

The roots of Your vineyard went deep into the soil

and filled the land with fruit.

10–11 Because of Your favor on Your vineyard,

blessing extended to every mountain of influence.

Through this flourishing vineyard mighty ones were raised up.

The nations were blessed by Your fruitful vineyard of Israel,

all the way from the Mediterranean to the Euphrates.

12–13 So Lord, why have You broken down

Your fence of favor around us?

Trespassers can steal the fruit from off our vines,

and now every wild beast comes

breaking through our wall to ravage us.

You’ve left us without protection!

14 Come back, come back, O God to restore us!

You are the Commander of Angel Armies.

Look down from heaven and see our crisis.

Come down and care for Your lovely vineyard once again.

15 Nurture our root and our fruit with Your loving care.

Raise up the Branch-Man, the Son whom You’ve made strong.

16 Enemies chopped down our vine and set it on fire;

now show them Your anger and let them perish by Your frown.

17 Strengthen this Branch-Man, the Son of YOUR Love,

the Son of Man who dwells at Your right hand.

18 Then we will never turn back from You.

Revive us again, that we may trust in You.

19 O God, the mighty Commander of Angel Armies,

come back and rescue us!

Let Your beaming face shine upon us

with the sunrise rays of glory.

Then nothing will ever stop us again!

The above Psalm is all about restoration of HIS people who have gone astray and have become lukewarm causing the loss of FATHER’S protection from their enemies.  How could the church allow the legalization of killing unborn babies?  How could unrighteousness permeate our land?

The “church” must repent else their lampstands will be removed forthwith.  There are no acceptable excuses for letting this happen any longer.

Verse 2 references Numbers 2:

17 “And the tabernacle of meeting shall move out with the camp of the Levites in the middle of the camps; as they camp, so they shall move out, everyone in his place, by their standards.

18 “On the west side shall be the standard of the forces with Ephraim according to their armies, and the leader of the children of Ephraim shall be Elishama the son of Ammihud.” 19 And his army was numbered at forty thousand five hundred.

20 “Next to him comes the tribe of Manasseh, and the leader of the children of Manasseh shall be Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.” 21 And his army was numbered at thirty-two thousand two hundred.

22 “Then comes the tribe of Benjamin, and the leader of the children of Benjamin shall be Abidan the son of Gideoni.” 23 And his army was numbered at thirty-five thousand four hundred.

The Hebrew text includes the names Ephraim (“doubly fruitful”), Benjamin (“son of my right hand”), and Manassah (“You made me forget”). These three sons of Rachel marched together behind the ark of Glory (Num. 2:17-24) and became representatives of all who follow the Glory of God. They will be “doubly fruitful,” “Sons of HIS Right Hand,” and those who have “forgotten” their lives in Adam.

These three tribes represent the Sons of GOD and their names reflect the attributes of mature Sons.  We are to fully accept and embrace those attributes as we reach full maturity and expect those qualities to operate in our lives.

It is especially important to “forget” our lives in Adam and not allow the adversary to bring up our past and continue to accuse us for those past sins.  I cast down all vain imaginations and every thought which exalts itself above The Word!  You should too!

The  Blood of Jesus was and is more than sufficient to deal with the past so we must never forget that Truth.  We are called to follow the Glory and not man.  We are to be shining lights to those who have embrace darkness for the light emanating from the Sons will expose darkness and all the lies of the enemy.  Let FATHER’S Glory come forth over the land!
