Why God Sometimes Says ‘Not Yet’?

“You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For, ‘In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.’” (Hebrews 10:36-37 NIV)

If you’re discouraged because of God’s delay in answering your prayers, understand the delay is not a denial. Just because the answer or the miracle hasn’t come yet doesn’t mean God isn’t going to answer or that he’s forgotten you or that he doesn’t care about you. It simply means “not yet”!

Part of becoming spiritually mature is learning the difference between “no” and “not yet,” between a denial and a delay. The Bible tells us, “He who is coming will come and will not delay” (Hebrews 10:37 NIV).

God’s delay may be a test of your patience. Anybody can be patient once. And, most people can be patient twice. And, a lot of us can be patient three times. So God tests our patience over and over and over.

Why? So he can see how patient you are? No!

He does it so you can see how patient you are — so you’ll know what’s inside you, and you’ll be able to know your level of commitment. God tests you so that you can know he is faithful, even if the answers you seek are delayed.

You may be going through difficult times right now. You may be discouraged because the situation you face seems unmanageable, unreasonable, or unfair.

It may seem unbearable, and inside you’re basically saying, “God, I can’t take it anymore. I just can’t take it anymore!”

But you can.

You can stay with it longer because God is with you. He’ll enable you to press on. Remember, you are never a failure until you quit. Resist discouragement, and finish the race God has set before you.

The Powerful Key to Prayer

“And I tell you more: whenever two of you on earth agree about anything you pray for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, I am there with them” (Matthew 18:19-20 TEV)

If you look at the Lord’s Prayer, you’ll see that it reflects praying together: “Our Father . . . give us . . . our daily bread . . . forgive us our debts . . . as we also have forgiven our debtors . . . lead us not into temptation . . . deliver us . . . (Matthew 6:9-13 NIV, emphasis mine).

Many of us miss out on so much because we only pray by ourselves. Yet, when Jesus gave us an outline for prayer, He spoke about praying together. There is power in group prayer.

If you’re not praying with other believers, then you’re not getting the support you need. You’re missing out on one of the major benefits of being a Christian. Jesus says “whenever two of you on earth agree
about anything you pray for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, I am there with them (Matthew 18:19-20 TEV). That’s the power of praying with other people.

Ask yourself, “Who am I consistently praying with on a regular basis?” You may be saying you’ve never prayed with anybody before and it scares you to death. It’s okay to start slow. When you get together with five or six other friends, you don’t have to pray if you don’t want to; you can sit there and be quiet.

Then, after several weeks, as you become more comfortable, you can begin to participate more in the group’s prayers. You’ll find a new level of stability in your life.

If you’ve never prayed with other people, start by praying aloud when you’re alone. I do most of my praying, more than any other place, on the freeway. I’m driving down the road and talking aloud to the Lord, “Lord, here are some things I want to talk with you about today.”

Another suggestion is to pray at meals. Our family holds hands; sometimes we pray sentence prayers such as thank you prayers to God for what he has done for us.

Praying together is another form of worshipping God.

The Harvest Principle: God Alone Supplies

“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness” (2 Corinthians 9:10 NIV).

You must decide you will look to God only as your source of supply. You need to tell God that you’re going to look to Him alone to provide for your needs and that you won’t look anywhere else.

We get ourselves in trouble when we confuse the channel with the source. God may use your paycheck from work as the channel to supply your needs, but your employer is just the channel for God’s
provision—and God can shift to another channel anytime he wants.

When you start to look to something or someone else to meet your needs, when you begin to confuse the channel with the source, there is a clear warning sign: Worry!

Say you’ve started looking to your job as the source, instead of the channel. You may start worrying, “What if I lose my job?” You know what? That channel may close, but the source of your every need is
still active and providing for you. When God turns off one channel, he can turn on another one.

Once you know what you’re lacking, you need to give God the right to choose whatever channel He decides to fulfill the need. It may be a channel different from one you would choose; in fact, God may
deliberately choose a different channel in order to teach you to keep looking to him for all your needs.

I have learned, as a Christian for nearly forty years, that it’s exciting to just let God be God. It’s exciting to watch God meet a need in a way that you never thought possible or could have never thought up on your own.

God alone is the source of your supply.

God Is Watching over You

“Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever” (Psalm 23:6 NLT).

God is watching over you.

When King David writes, “Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me,” he’s not saying, “Surely only good things will happen to me!”

The fact is bad things happen to good people. What David is teaching us is that God can take bad, evil, and difficult situations and bring something good out of them.

It’s one of God’s great promises to us: we can know that all things are working for our good “if we love God and are fitting into his plans” (Romans 8:28 LB). If you’re a believer, the Bible says all things are working together for good—not that all things are good, but that they work together for good. There’s no difficulty, dilemma, defeat, or disaster in life that God can’t ultimately turn toward good.

When you understand God’s grace and mercy, there’s no need to fear the future. God isn’t trying to get even with you. Jesus shouldered the penalty for everything you’ve ever done wrong or will do wrong. He paid for it on the cross. So when a bad thing happens, you don’t have to think, “God’s getting even with me.” That’s how God’s grace and mercy work.

Mercy, like goodness, follows us in life. Picture a parent following a little child around picking up after them; God is constantly picking up our messes. Think about this:

• Christians go to the future, not with a question mark, but with an exclamation point. God will be with you no matter what happens. He will help you out.

• God’s goodness provides and protects; God’s mercy pardons and forgives. God’s goodness will supply; God’s mercy will sooth. God’s goodness will help; God’s mercy will heal.

• Goodness is the fact that God gives us good things in life that we don’t deserve. Mercy means God holds back the condemnation we deserve.

TIMES OF GROWTH

“My brethren, count it all when you fall into various trials.” (James 1:2)

Our reaction to negative circumstances can make we feel defeated and depressed. Our proactive response to negative circumstances can resolve our problems and develop our character. As a child of God, we have God’s help to turn our negative circumstances into a lesson in developing character. During our Christian walk we will develop character, regardless of whether or not we want to. The only issue is how many times we will repeat the lesson before we learn it and move on.

Some people want to have a pity party when they encounter negative circumstances. The cause of their negative, miserable attitude is their refusal to act on His Word and count it all joy. Some people insist on acting out however they happen to feel, but stubbornly retaining a bad attitude causes His power to remain idle in the lives of those who always react instead of respond. Heaven responds when His children count it all joy, not when they bellyache and complain.

The challenge to living a life of faith comes when negative circumstances attempt to rob us of our joy. Make a decision to start using our new habit of counting it all joy when we experience trials and negative circumstances. Many people have been conditioned to react negatively to negative circumstances. When we continue to react to negative circumstances instead of counting it all joy, you keep getting more of those negative circumstances. However, our joy is not dependent on our circumstances; our joy is dependent on following the instructions in God’s Word.

If you are dealing with obstacle that are getting you down, then Master Prophet E. Bernard Jordan can help by letting you know through a personal prophecy reading what God’s vision is for you and your life, log in out our website at Bishop Jordan.

 

SEEING OUR DREAMS COME TRUE

Understand that our true identity is in Christ, not in what we accomplish. Recognize that our worth comes from the fact that we were one of His beloved children and remember that without God, we can not do anything. Ask Him to give us confidence we need to be secure in who we are, no matter what our current circumstances. Do not brag about our dreams, when we discuss them with others, keep the focus on Him rather than ourself. Spend time with Him in prayer every day and let our time in God’s presence humble us and remind is of God unconditional love for us.

Realize that He has a great plan for everyone God has created. Know that He has already spoken a specific, prophetic word over our life, releasing the power to carry us toward our destiny. Get to know and love His Word to everyone, the Bible, by reading and studying it often. Let it test our character and build our faith. When we were trying to discern whether or not a specific prophecy we hear is truly from Him, remember that He never says anything contrary to what God has said in the Bible. Keep in mind that He still speaks today through His Holy Spirit. But remember that any prophecy we may receive is just a part of what He is saying. He gives prophetic words to encourage us and cause us to seek him. But we should put prophetic words together with Scripture to come up with a more complete picture of what He is saying. Ask the Holy Spirit to help us discern which part of a prophecy is purely from Him, and which part is coming from our own personality or issues.

Bishop Jordan that believe that God created us to have power and intends us to use it the way God does, to do good, help people and make life on earth better. Try to be good steward of the authority and responsibility He has given to us. Remember that it is what we do with God given power and blessing that is the true test of our character.

Believe that we have a God given purpose in life. Ask God to show us our talents and spiritual gifts. Think and pray about we were good at doing, and what we most enjoy doing, those things a probably related to our talents and gifts. Begin to do those things more and more, and He will reveal more of our purpose to us. Rest in the knowledge that because He is good, God is working for good in every situation in our life.

“For thus saith the Lord of host, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye causes to be dreamed.” (Jeremiah 29:8)

ENJOYING OUR LIFE

Do we struggles and responsibility weigh us down with frustration, boredom, or hopeless? Rest assured that God wants us to have a much better life, one that we enjoy, no matter what our circumstances.

Stop looking for true and lasting satisfaction in the wrong places, such as through our work, personal pleasure or accumulation of knowledge or material possessions. Realize that only He can provide the fulfillment we seek. Make a strong relationship with God our top priority. Understand that denying our self enjoyment does not somehow make us a more seriously spiritual person. God Himself is joyful and intends us to fully enjoy the gifts that God gives us. Go ahead and have fun pursuing our interest, knowing that as long we do not engage in anything harmful, we can enjoy our pursuits.

Understand that God has created all humans beings to engage in relationships with God and each other. Make us we were investing plenty of time and energy in relationship, which give us lots to enjoy. Pray about specific challenges in our relationship, trusting Him to give us the solution we need.

Ask Him to constantly search our heart and show our areas of sin that we need to to deal within order to truly enjoy life. Confess our sins honestly and frequently, repent of them and embrace His forgiveness and grace to keep growing. Expect that the more we submit every part of our life to Him, the more of God’s wisdom God will reveal to us. Prophet Manasseh believes that there is an end to every trial. Instead of giving into temptation, press closer into God and ask God to renew our strength during a hard time. If we do not see immediate answer to our prayers, keep praying and expect Him to answer them at exactly the right time. If you want to submit a prayer request for your mother, Prophet Manasseh Jordan will pray over for you and for your mother.

“Behold, what I have seen to be good and fitting is to eat and drink and find enjoyment in all the toil with which under the sun the few days of his life that God has given him, for this his lot.” (Ecclesiastes 5:18)

SPIRITUAL GIFTS IMPACTS THE CHURCH

Knowing that each of us has gifts that are valuable and needed in the Body of Christ gives us purpose in God’s kingdom. As we demonstrate the love of God through gifts that He gives us, we can experience personal fulfillment and great joy: we can experience purpose in life. As we mature in our understanding of spiritual gifts and learn to be channels of God’s power as He works through them, we are equipped to bear abundant fruit in the kingdom of God.

If you are dissatisfied with your spiritual gift and decide not to use it, you’ll still have the same gift and the same role in the Body, but you will have refused to function. God will still accomplish His purposes on the earth and in the hearts of men (see Philippians 1:6), but you will forfeit the privilege and joy of carrying out your God-given assignments on the earth. God has deliberately given us different gifts, we need each other. As each one of us responds to needs according to our particular spiritual gifts, and He allows us to serve God in various roles of spiritual service, the Body of Christ can experience the fullness of His love.

Master Prophet believes that spiritual gifts are part of the very nature of God, given to you for Him to use to fulfill God purposes in our life and on earth. As we use our spiritual gifts, the Body of Christ will be edified, unified and matured, we will avoid deception by Satan and by wicked men, and we will grow in Christ.

“ To equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in very respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.” (Ephesians 4:12-15)

ASKING GOD FOR FORGIVENESS

God is a forgiving God. The Bible tells us He is. But the Bible also clearly tells us that God is also just and He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished. (Exodus 34:6-8) He is a just Judge and must deal with sin. If He just forgave us of our sins without dealing with our sins then He would be unjust, unholy and frankly a very bad judge.

It is impossible for us to do anything to satisfy that debt since we are already sinners and even our most contrite and heartfelt sorrow is in itself tainted with sin. The only solution is for someone who is without sin to stand in our place and satisfy God’s righteous wrath. What we need is a great transaction.

Bishop Jordan believes that God is just and has dealt with our sin. No created thing will ever be able to point the finger at God and accuse Him of being unjust in saving His people. The other side of this amazing transaction is that through repentance and faith, Christ’s perfect righteousness is imputed to us. When God looks on believers He sees the perfect, spotless righteousness of His Son.

John tells us that if believers will confess their sins to God as Father that He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins. He can only be just in forgiving us our sins because Christ has stood in our place and bore His wrath. So this verse is speaking of the constant need for believers to confess their sins to God so that fellowship with Him is unhindered. An unbeliever cannot claim the promises of this verse since he is not covered under the atoning work of Christ.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)

OUR GREATEST DESIRE IS TO LOVE

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For i am sure that neither death nor life, nor angles, nor rulers, nor things present to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:37-39)

Love is a subject that is the most important desire for everyone one of us. You can pretend to be strong enough to not need love in our life but that only ends with depression. The harsh truth is no matter how strong us think we are nothing without love. You have no purpose without it. God created us because of love. God first loved us. In the Garden of Eden Adam and Eve were created it is because of love however their greatest sin was also because of love. Love for self. At the beginning of creation God was love and poured out His love onto the earth. It was Satan who perverted that love and turned the innocent love for what He created into pride as you in the choice that Eve made.

Bishop Jordan believe that God created love to draw us nearer to Him and you must remember this when you are focusing our attention on things of the world. Love is our greatest pursuit and our greatest desire. Love is also about trust. Whether that love is with a family member or the Heavenly Father. It is through love you learn to trust. God is the only one that can make us feel whole. We cannot depend on another human to feel complete.

STEP OUT IN FAITH TO HELP WORLD

The pervasive problems of our broken world, from poverty to crime, can seem overwhelming. But God can and does use individual to help solve the world’s problem. We are part of the miracle that is looking for to help change the world. If we make ourself available to Him, God will work through our life in miraculous ways
to bring healing and hope to people in need. It all start with taking the step of faith involved and when God call us to follow Him. Stepping out to do what seems impossible can be scary like trying to walk on water but His will help us to keep walking it is because everything is possible for Him.

Look beyond our local community to the greater world and consider what needs God may be leading us to help meet there. Ask God to guide us to specific ways we can take action to help alleviate that injustice such as by supporting charities that are working for that same cause.

Bishop Jordan believes that God will provide what we need to accomplish whatever tasks God wants us to perform. Trust the Lord to do so one day at a time. Since God’s provision comes after we start walking in faith, go ahead and keep taking steps of faith, expecting God to give us everything we need along the way.

“And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.” (Acts 3:16)

WE MUST FEAR THE LORD

“The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy  One is insight.” (Proverb 9:10)

One kind of fear is the fear that shrinks from the Lord is dread which covers from Him and turn away from Him in terror as if He were our problem. That kind of fear is pagan not the Christian. It has nothing to do with glorifying and enjoying the Lord. It is suspicion and resentment toward the Lord. The gospel does not create this fear in our hearts. The gospel show you the glory of the Lord grace in Christ and lift you up, assured and fearless to face life boldly as men and women of eternal destiny. This is a new attitude of openness to the Lord which created by His love. If we are in Christ His perfect love is casting out our fear of judgment.

Master Prophet E. Bernard Jordan believes that as soon you accept that you are measure but the measured, you are not the givers but the recipients and that Jesus Christ is the universe’s greatest expert in all things humans you embark on a wonderful new journey. You are free to grow and change. You have received Him with the empty hands of Faith. You are under God’s love now. The gospel free us from the fear that the Lord will. In the end condemn us any way. Nothing will ever separate you from the love of the Lord in Christ Jesus our Lord. If you want to get a free written prophecy. Talk to Master Prophet E. Bernard Jordan.

HE IS IN CONTROL DONT NOT WORRY

It seem that in the busyness and the more complicated life gets, the more you can feel our life are out of control. For all the life enhancing, time saving gadgets you may have, life still has a habit of doing the unexpected and turning our world upside down. It mat sound cliched, you know but among the messes of life where it seem as if everything has gone, He is in control. Life has a habit of escaping our control.
As much as you may want to keep everything nicely ordered make a plan for how you want things to turn out and organize things so you reduce chaos life has a habit doing the unexpected. whatever happens in life, there is control. Life may feel out to you. But He has plan for you which not be thwarted, overturned or disrupted. He is in control.

“Surely just as I have intended so it has happened, and just as I have planned so it will stand, For the Lord of host has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched out hand, who can turn it back?”(Isaiah 14:24-27)

Bishop Jordan believes that HE will not bring harm un our life. God allows bad things to happen at times things which we do not understand, but He will not cause us harm. You can trust in God’s will utterly. It is because God plan for us is not bring us harm but to prosper us. Sin has distorted His perfect world and brings about suffering in the life of all us. But Ge wants to see us flourish , grow and be blessed.If you want to know about more about God’s plan for you. Get your free prophecy now.

THE CHRISTIAN’S SECRET

Does living the Christian life seems impossible? Let us tell you a secret it is impossible on our own. And trying to live the Christian life by our own effort is like a ship on dry land just does not work very well. For the ship to get anywhere it needs
to be resting on the water and to enjoyed the Christian life one needs to learn on how rest in God. The Christian’s secret to a consistent life is for Christ to live His life through us.

“I have been crucified with Christ; and I myself no longer live, but a Christ lives in me. And the real life I now have within this body is a result of my trusting in the Sonof God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20)

Master Prophet believes that we have been given to someone to enable us to live the Christian life bravely in the Holy Spirit. He is not just a guide at the information booth along the heavenly trail. He is the Spirit of Christ that come to live in us. The Holy Spirit is God as the Son and the Father, much of the confusion surrounding the Holy Spirits occurs when people fail to view Him as a person. He has a personality. God is a divine person with a will and emotions. If we were obeying Christ today and trusting His power to change us, then we are exactly where God wants us to be. Do not agonize over the fruit we feel we lack. We never saw one of those young tress ever comparing itself with the old ones. Growth is a process and each part of the
process is vital. Want to be a part of Cyber Church? Click here now

GOD’S UNIQUE LOVE

“In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent His only Son  into the world, so that we might live through him. In this love, not we loved God but  that He loved us.”(1 John 4:9-10)

A relationship with God is like no other relationship we may have experienced. God has unique kind of love for us. It is unconditional not based upon meeting certain conditions. God loves us because He loves us. God doesn’t love us based upon our performance. There is nothing we can do to cause Him to love us any more than God already does and there is nothing that will cause God to love us any less. God loves us even more than we love our self. When God gave us a new life it did not come trimmed in lace and smelling perfume. Jesus began His early life in a smelly damp stable. He tasted real life and that will be the flavor of our journey with Christ is no magic just the promise of His presence with us.

Bishop Jordan believes that our faith rests in what God has revealed about Himself to us. He specifically wants us to believe and rely on His love for us. He loves loves us no matter what, even when we disobey. But we will live in His love, enjoyed His live as we obey Him. To grow in our understanding of God’s love for us.

DOING THE WORKS OF GOD

“Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the Law; ye are fallen
from grace.” (Galatians 5:4)

The works in terms of righteousness is what the ministry today often refers to as works, in fact is
that if you were working for your righteousness you were under the law and have fallen from grace. You think of falling grace as to say, falling into sin, but that is not what the scripture is saying, when you fall from grace, you have fallen in a place of unbelief, as you were relying on your works to make you righteous.

Bishop Bernard Jordan believes that is not what the Lord intended. You ca not have peace with God while relying on your fallible human will power to be righteous. You can have peace with God when you rest by faith in His finished work of the Cross, thereby clothing you with His righteousness. The Lord has done the work of making you righteous by clothing you with His righteousness when you accept God work on the cross by faith. Your job is to accept that righteousness, which done through believing by accepting by faith the work of the cross. It is done. The Lord calls us all to do the works of Christ, same thing that the Lord did while here on earth. Prophecy News Watch explains it is important for each of one of us to what is the prophecies and revealing the Bible to us, and explains how it is important that happening and changing the world that we are facing now.
