From the Finest Detail to the Grandest Design He is God.
Tonight’s prophetic word is the seventh and final message of this string of messages. Before we begin this message I just want to reinforce some of what I talked about last night, concerning our love for God, and how necessary it is for every motivation to come from a deep love for God. After all, if love for God is not the first purpose of our being, what would we really ever have to minister to anybody but dead works that had essentially no life.
Any ministry that is based on anything other than a love for God is a dead work. There are many ways to minister but only one God, and in Him we live, and move, and have our being. The people of ‘the world’ know when you do not really love God when you minister to them. They see through you better than you think they do. They view Christians as hypocritical liars, not because of what is being said, but because they can see and perceive our motivations when we were saying it.
There is no church program, or teaching, or seminar that can input the love of God into a person, the only way to obtain a love for God is to put down your own life, take up your cross and follow Jesus, diligently seeking Him, as King David said in Psalms 42, “As the deer pants for the water brooks, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.”
Believe it or not, your soul will never pant after God as the deer pants for the water as long as your soul pants after something else other than God. When Jesus said, “No one can serve two masters for either he will love the one and hate the other or he will hate the one and love the other.” He wasn’t kidding. In other words, folks, there is no balance, there is no way to try to make God first when He is only one of many loves in a persons life. Try to do it any other way, try being God’s little good steward of all that He has given you and then ask yourself this question, “Am I a good steward of the gospel?”
Just read Revelations 2:1-5. Basically a church, or an individual, can have every good thing going for them and still be removed from the purposes of God for the sin of losing God as our first love.
As for the prophetic message that was shared previously I would like to add, one more thing. John 4:23,24, “But an hour is coming, and now is, when true worshippers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth; for such people the Father seeks to be worshippers.” God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth.”
I’m not sure when it was at the time that I saw this revelation I had been seeing so many things that God was showing me that I’m not sure at what moment this vision occurred. I was standing in the air in a vast black expanse but it was not black like evil, but rather it appeared to me to be outer space, and yet there were no stars or planets or moons or any other feature, none to be found in space. As I looked up there appeared in front of me the back of an enormous well muscled man. The look of him was like a chiseled marble statue. Every muscle, every contour, every detail was proportionately perfect. The skin of this enormous figure was glowing brightly, and the figure, though perfect like a statue, was obviously very alive. I could see the elbows of this man moving and I knew he was doing something with his hands. I could also tell that he wanted me to watch what he was doing. As soon as I knew that he wanted me to watch what he was doing I knew it was the Lord. I drew close to Him and moved or ‘flew’ around His immense left arm and looked at His hands. I was fascinated by what I saw.
With His massive fingertips He was delicately and with detailed precision creating an atom. As I looked at the atom I was amazed to see that there is more to the design and make-up of an atom than scientists are aware of today. A lot more! There is literally more that we do not know about the atom than what we do know. It is literally a whole different world; a little mini universe.
“Lord,” I asked. “What is it that you are doing?”
“I am creating the universe,” He said.
I thought, This would take forever! I was a little afraid to ask but my curiosity got the better of me so I said, “Lord, it seems like it would take so long to create the universe an atom at a time.”
He smiled at me and looked at me in a way that I knew He was about to surprise me with something that would delight Him to show me. I also knew whatever it was would blow my little finite human mind.
With the atom in His right hand He extended His arm, and as He did this, it seemed to be in slow motion, as I was learning something about the atom with every inch that His arm traveled. I could see at the center of the atom was a thermo nuclear source of energy and that it created a gravitational pull causing the protons and electrons to orbit the nucleus of the atom. As I was noticing this and many other things about the atom, the Lord made a grand motion with His body, like He was about to throw something. It was an awesome and fearful sight.
As He threw His arm He also spun His body in a giant whirling motion as He did this He released the atom, there was a great force of energy in the heavens. And where there once was only blackness now there was a universe teeming with the life of the heavens. There were many galaxies with a sun, or thermo nuclear source, at the center having a gravitational pull, with planets and moons orbiting the sun, the galaxies were also in separate orbits . And, Oh yes, the entire universe was in orbit, orbiting around the throne of God. As He sat on His throne I heard Him say, “From the greatest to the least my design is perfect and you will see my signature in the greatest things when you examine the least of things.”
Just One Thought
Around the same time that I saw the vision of the atom I was caught up in the Spirit once again to see the greatness of God. This was a very interesting time in my life as God had been giving me much revelation for teaching knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. I felt like I was really getting somewhere in the depths of God. (Boy, did I have something to learn.) I was sitting at the feet of the Lord I did not see Him but I knew where I was. He had been teaching me and I was eagerly listening but at this moment I was just sitting in His presence, nothing more.
I said to Him, “Lord, I would like it if you would put just one of your thoughts in my mind.” I literally wanted God to transplant a single thought from His vast mind into my finite little human mind. As soon as I said this I knew it was a mistake, but I didn’t know why. I had made the error with a genuine heart and out of a desire to be closer to God.
The Lord told me that this would be impossible, and then He explained to me why. He took me to the part of scripture where He put creatures on the face of the earth everyone one according to it’s kind. But, He specifically took me to the portion of scripture where He created all the creeping things on the face of the earth. (OK, but this part will be a little tougher to explain.) To explain this part you must first understand that the language that is spoken in heaven is different than any of the languages that are spoken on earth, although at one time, on earth, we spoke a very similar language to the language in heaven. But, oh well, what can I say, we just had to have that great monolithic tower and stay in one place rather than going apart and covering the earth as we were commanded. So to make along story short, human kind used to speak the language that I heard God speak when He said, “Let there be creeping things on the face of the earth.” It was a one word command, all of His thoughts, all of His desires, and all of His intentions were in the single word command. When He spoke this command it was an awesome thing that I will have a bit of a hard time describing it to you.
It is kind of like when I say the word ‘pants’ to you. You know; pants like trousers. When I say that word to you, in your mind, depending on your age of course, you can think of thousands of different kinds of pants; bellbottoms, jeans of all kinds, polyester, and though you may be embarrassed to admit this, lederhosen and a myriad of other kinds of pants.
When God spoke the one word command that meant, “Let there be creeping things on the face of the earth,” I saw the most unbelievable thing before my eyes. The first thing I noticed was all the mathematical computations involved in creating the body structures, the cell structures, and the chemical compositions of every different kind of creeping animal, all of their jointed socketry, the millions of different kinds, and the nervous systems, and their cellular make-up, and their behaviors, their instincts, their sociological patterns, and the ecological societies came into being with a word.
You would think that this took thousands of years of planning, but really what can I tell you, GOD IS REALLY SMART! Believe it or not, when He spoke His intention it came into being at that moment, and at that very moment, at that very same time, all of that planning, ingenuity, and thought was an immediate, at the moment off the top of His head though not an unintentional command. In other words, the grandest schemes, the most intelligent thinking is something God can do while He’s thinking about five or six million other things. Nothing is impossible for God.
Then the Lord explained to me that if He put just that one thought in my mind that being the thought that it took to command creeping things into being, if He put that thought into my human head, for the rest of my human life my mind would never function again. Just one thought of God is more than human kind could discover if they searched it’s meaning for an eternity.
God is great and mighty and awesome and He alone and nothing else is worthy of all praise.
I don’t know how many times I have repeated myself on this theme, but in these last days our love for God is what will keep us next to Him in the unbelievably trying times that are about to come.
In the last season of the church many people received the revelation that they had about God from popular books put out by many Christian writers. It is true these books did contain some revelation, some of the books having more revelation than others. There were even some books that I found very humorous (God does not allow me to read much extra biblical material). But I did hear these books that humored me so much from the account of other people. What I found humorous about them wasn’t just that they were attempting to tell you the formula for having a revival, but what was humorous to me was the one common factor that was similar in all the accounts of their revivals, that they had written about. In all the accounts of their revivals the pastor was taken out or knocked out by the Holy Spirit and then the church went into revival. What I thought was so funny about these accounts is that it seemed like that the Holy Spirit had to remove the pastor from the position of control so that God could have it. And yet when the pastor woke up, brushed himself off, and got up off the floor, he immediately began trying to make something he had not even witnessed into a formula and then had the audacity to make it into a book or a teaching or media of some kind.
Make no mistake about it there, are hard times ahead. Do no listen to false prophets that say, “Tomorrow we shall see blessing and peace and surely the Lord will bring us into happiness.” I’m telling you that what the Word of God say’s is true, and there are tough times ahead, in the tough times that are coming you won’t find the answers in any revelation given to you by men. And that includes me. But you will only find what you need at the feet of Jesus. Your mind cannot perceive or even begin to understand the greatness of God, you will only succeed by trusting in, believing in and loving Him. You cannot even change God’s mind about what His Word already says He will do.
Many think they will stand on the mountain tops and like Abraham interceding to God for Sodom and Gomorrah to be spared; They also believe they will go to the mountain tops and plead for America to be spared. Let me tell you the truth, Abraham was not on that mountain to show God how much more grace, mercy, and love he had than God did. Abraham was on that mountain top to learn that God was right, when God makes a judgment, it is a right judgment; His Words are true. I mean after all, look at the people that were spared from Sodom and Gomorrah; Lot, his wife, and his two daughters. God did spare them but within a short time after there family left the city, Lot’s wife disobeyed God and looked back at the cities during their judgment. Then she was turned into a pillar of salt, as God said she would, if she looked at the city. Then not twenty four hours later Lot was drunk and unbeknownst to him, he was having sex with his two daughters.
So, this is the account of the righteous that God spared from Sodom and Gomorrah, in other words; God was right, Abraham was wrong. Many people today as I just mentioned before, believe they have more grace, mercy, and love than God, but as Job said, “Who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him.”
I don’t know what these people are searching for, surely they know that all that the Word of God says must happen before the Lord comes, no matter what your view is on end times prophecy. Maybe these people are hoping God will relent from His judgment during their life time so they wont have to see it.
I am telling you the truth it is to your benefit to both love the Word of God and to come into agreement with the Word of God this is the only way to align yourself with the purposes of God. And you must also love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and foremost commandment.
In these last seven messages this is what we have talked about, loving the Lord your God with all of your heart, with all of your soul, and all of your mind; without love for God it will be impossible to make it through the times that are coming with your faith in Jesus intact.
One simple example of some reasons why this nation, in particular, will be experiencing such hard times is by considering our attitude after 9/11. Many of the cars in America had a sign in the rear window that either said, “Proud to be an American” or “God bless America.” The largest people group in percentage whose cars bore these signs and banners were the people of the American Church. Let me tell you what the signs and banners should have read, from a true church. They should have said, “America bless God” or, “If my people who are called by my name will HUMBLE themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and will heal their land.” How many of us would have been comfortable with an American flag banner in the rear window of our car that said, “Pride comes before a fall.” And yet what an accurate message that would have been. Instead of humbling ourselves we have fallen into the same sin, as a nation, that Israel did in Isaiah 9:8-10, and unfortunately the rest of this chapter doesn’t make that look to promising.
All I can tell you, one last time, is to love God and His Word with all of your being.
In His service,
Daniel Paul Hoskins
