This is the Day that the Lord has made

BY:  DAVID L. WALKER – APRIL 2005


Will I ever walk in tomorrow? Or will it always be today? If I put off for tomorrow what I can do today, that tomorrow never comes. Our God doesn't promise us tomorrow. He is a God of the now. Yes, He was in the past, but He is not there now. He will be in the future, but He's not yet there. He is in my life today and there is where I want Him to remain.

In the beginning God created one day at a time and He changes not. "This is the day which the LORD hath made; we win rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24. Our God made the beginning Day and He will make the closing Day. Our choice is to be in the Day that He has created or to be in the day that we have created. In Proverbs 16:4 it reads, "The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil" His King­dom is different from the kingdom of this world. First of all, His King­dom has a door. That door is His flesh, Jesus. His death at Calvary made Him the door to the Kingdom of God. There is no salvation, no light, no life or forgiveness of sin outside of Him. There is no other door into the Kingdom of God besides Him. We must enter through that door. He and He alone lived, walked and talked as the expression of God. No one else has done this. Jesus became that perfect sacrifice at Calvary for all creation. He laid down His life that you and I might live and have forgiveness of sin. He came so we could become a new creation through Him.

 

When He comes into our lives, that new creation is birthed. A process begins to take place inside of us. Like a caterpillar changing into a butterfly. A change takes place on the inside that will eventually be manifested on the outside and all will see the change. The only thing that can stop this process is us.

 

Let's look at another example of this process. When an eagle is born, he is inside a shell. Being in the shell doesn't change the fact that he is an eagle. He is an eagle and some day, God willing, he will fly in the heavenlies. The little eagle in the nest has everything he needs to be an eagle, he is just limited at this time.

 

It is like coming into Passover. We hear about Jesus being the Son of God and how He lived a perfect life as God's Son. How He laid His life down for us at Calvary and was beaten, whipped, bruised and nailed to the cross for us. The very blood He shed now covers our sins. At His birth He was the Son of God and He was the sacrifice lamb, but He was not yet ready for Calvary. He had to face and go through many things in His life before He was ready to face the cross.

 

Like the little eagle in the egg, he's not quite ready for the warfare he will have to fight in the heavenlies, even though he is an eagle. In the egg he has limited vision, he can not see afar off. He has limited movement as he grows, because his flesh is confined in a shell. Passover is a very limited place. We know of God, but we can't see Him, touch Him or experience Him, like the little eagle in the shell.

 
We then hear about Pentecost. Jesus said in John 14: 14-20, "If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it. If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter  that he may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless.  I
will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you."

 

Three things make up an egg: the shell, the egg white and the yoke. There is only one seed in all of cre­ation that can fertilize that eagle egg and that is the seed from a father eagle. No other kind of bird or ani­mal can fertilize that egg, but a father eagle, and that seed will produce an eagle. The process is the same with us. There is only one thing in all of creation that can fertilize the spiritual seed inside of us and that is the Spirit of God. We can stay in Passover all of our lives and never know God, be­cause of our religious shell. We can't see, hear or experience His presence, because we stopped at the door and never entered in. We just know of Him, because we believe what hap­pened at Calvary.

 

Many cry out from inside the shell and say, "God, we know there is more. Your Word says you would send us a comforter to teach us all things. Fa­ther, we want to be free from this shell and it's confinements. We can't handle life as we know it any longer. Holy Spirit, come and lead us into the truth."

 

The shell of religion is broken, lim­ited understanding is taken away, blind eyes can now see as the veil of the flesh is removed. One can now see the clouds, the trees, flowers, mountains and the face of God for the first time. Freedom to move and to express new life has come. There is liberty from the shell of captivity, because of the Spirit. What was flesh has now become Spirit. (See John 3:5,6.)

 

Now, because of the mature ones and the voice of God inside, one begins to learn as a new man. "That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness." Ephesians 4: 22-24. In Colossians 3: 10, ''And, have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." Once we cry out and are impregnated with life, we become the DNA of God. It's no longer our flesh, but His. It's no longer our life, but His. This takes place and brings us beyond Pentecost and into Tabernacles, where we become the tabernacle of the living God. As the egg has three parts that brings forth the eagle which will fly in the heavenlies, so it is in us.

The Word which was made flesh and dwelt among us, now reveals Himself unto us. This brings forth a change of heart. A heart that is humbled by what: He did for us and the things He revealed unto us. The spirit, who is in captivity in the bowels of our earth, hears the Good News and cries out. The Holy Spirit comes and sets our spirit man free. As he rises up, as a new man, the living Word sets him free from sin and death and reveals the truth. Now the unveiled truth opens our eyes and we begin to see and our ears begin to hear. The freedom he has from the condem­nation of sin empowers him with the ability to be a Son of God. He dethrones the soul, who had taken on the Eve nature and puts her in her rightful place under the order of Christ. Now, the spirit and soul join in oneness to dethrone the things that had taken over the mind. The flesh begins to brighten and change from the look of death, to the look of the resurrected life as a new light, empowered by Christ, begins to shine in the heavenlies.

Today is a day the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad in it. This is the hour my friends. God does not promise tomorrow. A serpent could eat your egg today. You could fall out of the nest this hour or you could be struck by a bolt of lightning under the clouds, because you should be flying above them. God has allotted time to you for a purpose. It's up to you what you do with it, but you will stand before Him as a Judge or as a Savior and be asked, "What did you do with the time I allotted you?"
