A woman who learns how to access heaven
This is about a woman (symbolic Church) who was learning by hard situations, how to access heaven.
She had been married to a man of God,
I. He was anointed – anointing draws attack
II. Could get out of tight situations - a hustler for God
III. She had no need of concerned - take no thought
IV. Relationship with God - koinonia, daily communion w/God
V. She could depend upon him for a solution and an answer to whatever the need was.
Therefore she trusted in her husband and his ability to have God meet the need, and while her husband was alive, all their need was met according to God’s riches in glory.
You see, God always made a way,
a) Even if he had to “Reversed Time”. Even though time was up God made the deciding party to put in a call to the family and give them “another opportunity”.
b) Other times God may even “stop time” as he did when Joshua was fighting against the enemies of Israel. He needed more daylight and the bible tells us (10:12),
I. Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.
Hezekiah 2Kings 20:10, was sick unto death and the Lord sent him a message by Isaiah the prophet. “And Hezekiah answered, It
Intercessory series Pt.2
I. “And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees.”
So here we have a woman married to the “anointed one” whom God allowed to be taken up to heaven and the “wife” (church) was left for her development to be made in the image of God.
Hence we can now begin to see the picture more clearly of the symbolism between the woman in the text and her husband and Christ and the Church.
Jesus has now ascended on high and it is the church’s time to stand in the middle of the Jordan and say, Where is the God of Elijah? And then watch as the waters of the Jordon congeal.
