Land Reconciliation: Day 20
by David Brooks
I’d like to thank my friends for posting on my behalf I needed to go out of town for a day and wouldn’t have the means to post a document like normal. This would be a good time to talk about a few questions which have come up.
First question: How do we determine this time of year is the window of reconciliation for land? Or the other three windows? I have a partial answer; it’s the best I can give. As far as the times of the year, that’s the easy part. The 4 windows around the two solstices and the two equinoxes. Those four solar events are well known to be low points of occult activity; but, our basic premise is that “God was there first”.
The enemy didn’t choose randomly to dump enormous occult resources and effort into those 4 days because he invented them. The Lord created those days and in fact those 4 windows and blessed them along with the rest of time. The enemy simply works to leverage for his own benefit what God created for good. I think developing your discernment has a lot to do with realizing what flavor of grace is on the periods of time, then realizing that is a common pattern over a number of years.
I am pretty sure determining it’s a ten-day window around the annual solar event (the equinox or the solstice) is also a matter of discernment, and finding the year-to-year pattern. It’s God who gives us grace, and it’s God who gives us the grace to move into a greater awareness of grace.
In my mind this leads me to two conclusions:
1) since it’s not a command I’m not expected to do anything with it, and certainly not required to believe in it and
2) if I intend to make use of grace in that area, there should be something additional during those periods of time.
The challenge to me will be to find it. So, for that reason, I usually remind myself in advance and pray into my eyes being open and spirit enlarged to track with all the grace I can. I never have felt like I’ve clued into all that that is possible but normally I see substantial movement in some important area. It may not be the area I wanted but the effects often continue long after. I’m still experiencing results from the spring of 2017. You expect it to be long-lasting.
The second question has to do with the purpose of land reconciliation. Is it just to cleanse from ungodly things? I used to wonder about that a lot. When I started out, that was my perspective. It was more recently that I started to understand this differently.
Yesterday we talked about some passages in Colossians. This was one: For everything was created by him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things have been created through him and for him. -- Colossians 1:16 (CSB)
I literally read this for years, realized that land was included in this, heard the Lord say “this includes land, you know”, agreed ... and didn’t get the point. One day I started to realize that the Lord Jesus Christ has a particular destiny in mind for a given piece of land. That land has been around from the creation (something my wife observed recently) and the destiny God has in mind maybe thousands of years out. We can be like David and “serve the will of God in our generation”.
So, my view of land reconciliation has grown from dealing with ungodly things (and there are loads of them) to include, at a minimum, being a healthy and refreshing asset for the current and the next generation. At least I pray with that mind, realizing there is still more.
