​​​​dimensions of god's power 

prophetic message - Dealing with Set Time

Scripture Context: 2 Kings 20:1-5, 8-11; Judges 3:12-30; Job 12:1-2, 9, 22-25; Job 38:1-3; Job 41:1-2, 8-11; Job 42:1-2, 5-6, 10

Beloved Friends,

The Godhead (God the Father, God the Son—Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost) brings a word of revelation, warning, victory, and divine encouragement with absolute directive dealing with choice, faith, fortitude, and life for the Global Church Body of Jesus Christ, every “True Believer,” and all people across the world ready for the manifested salvation and glory of Jesus Christ. The Kingdom of Heaven—the Son, Jesus Christ, unveils a rhema word in the depth of transition coming from dimensions of proximity of shadows in transformation of death or life. Leaving these questions to reflect on, “What is causing you from proximity, position, and purpose, God has called forth in you?” The answer within the context, simply deals with a response to the question with individual accountability. How am I, “out of proximity,” “out of position,” and “out of purpose?” Often, circumstances, people, and life progression will affect and change all three. The greatest challenge humankind will/has faced is infinite of “in obedience” through life processes, knowing right transition, within the space—time allotted here on earth by God.

Did you know, we can reject the Truth because of unbelief, blindness, shame, or embarrassment of what has been revealed by the Kingdom of Heaven? However, it does not stop the Truth.

Now let us examine, God’s prophetic word dealing with “Out of the Shadows,” a life-changing encounter aligned by the Word of God to realign order according to His will. The scripture contexts reference manifestation of events leading to a choice, faith, fortitude, and life. The questions presented to all of “US” from Jesus Christ, searching from Heaven, “What are you really hiding from and behind? What counsel are you receiving? What is causing the lack of the traverse of God’s righteousness to simply transform?” The prayer of Job in his plight of circumstances, grief, sickness, and life, brings perspective, “My eye has also grown dim because of sorrow, and all my members are like shadows” (Job 17:7). But in Job’s spirit, he also proclaims outwardly, through of all this, “For I know that my Redeemer lives, and He shall stand at last on the earth” (Job 19:25). 

The scenes have been set with three different views and turn of events with revelation of the depth of life, death, and God’s power. The scenes are: The Shadow of Healing, The Unexpected—Unlikely Revealed Out of the Shadow—Messenger of God, and The Shadow of Deep Darkness to Light. Remember, God through Jesus Christ always sends His Word, Spirit, question, call out, and choice for humankind to make. How we respond represents the right or wrong transformation with manifestation of His power. Although, it may seem as if Heaven is shut up, at the time of transition and transformation, God always shows up in His miraculous power through right choice, in obedience, and faith.  Let’s stop a moment to digest.

Let us take a journey in four-word definitions mentioned in the opening and introduction context to give clarity:

  1. Shadow: Natural shadow – A dark area or shape by a body coming between rays of light and a surface or used to reference to proximity, ominous oppressiveness, sadness, or gloom. Biblical shadow – A stage in life between dimensions of darkness and light, a stage in life between death or life. A stage in life between fortitude and comfort. A stage in life between faith and obedience.
  2. Proximity – Nearness in space, time, or relationship
  3. Position – A place where someone or something is located or has been put. As situation. A particular way of arrangement for an outcome
  4. Purpose – The reason in which something or someone exists or created by God. The main objective of one’s life.

Let us take a journey in the scripture context with a revelation for us all to help in times of deep darkness in this world to transform the light and life:

There are three observations presented as a storyline from the scenes in the scripture context relating to “Out of the Shadows” with the commonality of “in obedience” which God evaluates to release His power at the “set time.”

​​The Shadow of Healing – King Hezekiah was twenty-five years old when he begins to reign king of Judah and reigned 29 years in Jerusalem. He did what was right in the sight of the LORD. He removed all the idols and high places and removed the Baal altars. King Hezekiah trusted in the Lord, 2 Kings 18:5, “He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.” The King held fast to the Lord and did his commandments, the Lord was with Hezekiah, and he prospered. King Hezekiah was a man of prayer, watchman, war, and accustomed to going into the house of the Lord to seek the Lord. He would lay his prayer petitions before the Lord at the altar. In the 14th year of His reign the King of Assyria came up against all the fortified cities of Judah and took them and assessed King Hezekiah heavily of gold and silver. Nevertheless, King Hezekiah continues to pray to God for deliverance and sends for the prophet Isaiah in Chapter 19, Isaiah assures King Hezekiah of victory, the Lord sent an angel of war and death, killed 185,000 of the Assyrian army and the Assyrian King was murdered by his sons. Later, King Hezekiah, who is approximately 39 years old now, falls sick unto death. He received word from the Lord by the Prophet Isaiah to set his house in order, “for you shall die, and not live.” King Hezekiah, made a choice to pray to the Lord, with "Remember now, O Lord, I pray, how I have walked before you in truth, and with a loyal heart, and done was good in your sight.” He wept bitterly. What is the significance of the context of scriptures in response to death and life?

  • King Hezekiah was “in obedience” according to the will of God and respond to the Lord as a dear son receiving news of death from a great God with all power. He turned to the Lord, prayed, and wept bitterly. (2 Kings 20:2)
  • King Hezekiah was walking in a shadow of death naturally, spiritually, and mentally, but he responded in prayer as King David in Psalm 23:4, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." He pleaded with the Lord for his delivering power. (2 Kings 20:3)
  • King Hezekiah “Out of the Shadow” represented faith in God, prayer in faith out of himself, despite his sickness to death and the message from the Lord. The remember now, got the Lord’s attention in his plead for life. (2 Kings 20:3-4)
  • Hezekiah’s proximity, position, and purpose was in order with God’s plan to extend his life as a testimony to every believer, God’s compassion, turn-around, and power over death and life. (2 Kings 20:4-5)
  • After receiving the Word of the Lord, He would heal him and extend his life, He asked for a sign of confirmation on the third day. An unusual response came from the Lord of testing faith. (2 Kings 20:8)
  • The Lord’s “Out of the Shadow” sign of divine healing, dealt with the shadow of the time of day being rearranged a “set time” 10 degrees forward or backward. (2 Kings 20:9)
  • King Hezekiah “Out of the Shadow” response, wanted to witness the divine healing power of God by requesting, not an easy manifestation, but to let the shadow go backward 10 degrees. This let us know to think of the impossible into manifestation. Ask in greatness. Here dealing with the transition of darkness and light to bring about divine healing. (2 Kings 20:11). Perhaps, King Hezekiah remembered the testimony of his forefather, Joshua, in Joshua 10:12-13, when Joshua asked the Lord of His great power for the sun to stand still until all his enemies were defeated. The Lord answered the request, the sun stood still for one day, no darkness came by the moon.
  • Isaiah the prophet, was the divine messenger and the intercessor of “Out of the Shadow” manifestation of divine healing. Connected for divine purpose. The king and prophets cry, the king’s faith, prayer, and expectation in divine manifestation brought about a divine miracle of healing by the shadow 10 degrees backward manifestation. Believing the impossible of human’s ability to manifest with a possible God’s power. (2 Kings 20:11).
  • Sidebar note scriptural context of warning, 2 Kings 20:12-18.


​​The Unexpected/Unlikely Revealed Out of the Shadow, God’s Messenger – God raises up a deliverer named Ehud out of the Tribe of Benjamin to Judge Israel. The Tribe of Benjamin was the less of the 12 Tribes of Israel chosen by God. A tribe of suffering, war, lack, and oppression. A tribe without many remaining men of valor. God calls out of the shadow of suffering, Ehud, a left-handed Benjaminite to judge Israel, one with deformity in the right-hand, when men of the Tribe of Benjamin symbolic were skilled with the right-hand of deliverance. Ehud was gifted in equal handiness with left-hand and right-hand use. What the right hand could not do, the left hand did greater. Ehud coming out of the Tribe of Benjamin was the less of choices in man’s natural eyes, however, God reconciled Himself to Benjamin, to manifest His own power in ordaining strength out of weakness, and that He might bestow more abundant honor upon that part which lacked. God reveals His power to the enemy, the Children of Israel, and Ehud himself to deliver a message to the oppressor of Israel regions. Deliverance will only come through acknowledging the call, obedience, and faith to do the impossible because God is with Us. What is the significance of this context of scripture?

  • ​The children of Israel again were disobedient, did evil, and served other gods. A perceptual cycle of rejecting God’s sovereignty. Eighteen years of oppression God delivered them into the hands of King Eglon, a great deepness of God’s judgment. (Judges 3:12-14)
  • It was not until sincere prayer and repentance was presented to the altar of God, He answered and raised up a Judge to be deliverer to remove the yoke and oppression of the oppressor. (Judges 3:15)
  • Ehud’s answered the call, in obedience at the “set time” to be a deliverer for God’s people in which the Tribe of Benjamin at some point in time warred with the Israelites. He came “Out of the Shadow” of the Tribe of Benjamin, to restore his own tribe, judge Israel, to war and destroy the enemy he knew, and deliver the people from oppression. (Judges 3:15-16)
  • At the Word of God, the Spirit of God was in Ehud and instructed him how to defeat King Eglon. Take note, this was not an order of murder or assassination. It was an order with a message, revealed by the unlikely, demonstrated through the power of God. Ehud planned the encounter with King Eglon by the Spirit of God. He prepared a dagger for the belly (can you imagine the Spirit of God instructing him as he was making the weapon). He planned how he would get close to him since he often presented before the King on behalf of Benjamin and chosen to make Tribute for Israel. He planned how the message would be delivered. He planned his way of escape. What was the secret message? A divine commission from God. “You are EXECUTED, Justice Has Come.” Unexpected! The shadow of death came to King Eglon, But the shadow of life came to the people of Israel, and a shadow of transformation to Ehud. (Judges 3:16-19, 26)
  • God’s power will have the enemy stand to give reference to His power and honor to His Word being delivered (Judges 3:19-22)
  • God will have the enemy servants shamed and surprised at the outcome of His power. The servants lingered for a long time before they realized King Eglon was dead. No one was able to get close to the King in secret. (Judges 3:24-25)
  • God reveals His power when we as people are willing to come “Out of the Shadow” of the past to perform great deliverance for people at God’s direction. Ehud executed, locked in the king, and took the key. (Judges 3:23)
  • Ehud’s fortitude, faith, and obedience led him from dimension of darkness to the light of life and victory (Judges 3:26-27)
  • Ehud’s most definitely was in obedience, proximity, position, and purpose aligned with God’s plan. Because Ehud was in obedience with God’s plan, the Lord delivered the enemies into the Israelite’s hands under Ehud’s leadership. The Lord demonstrated His power, eighty years of rest from Ehud’s call “Out of the Shadow.” The longest time of rest under any of the judges call forth by the Lord. (Judges 3:30).


The Shadow of Deep Darkness to Light – God raises up and restores Job out of his Shadow of Deep Darkness to the Light of God’s divine restoral power. Job begins with the undeserved suffering of the patriarch Job and reflects on the meaning of suffering and God’s relationship to one who suffers unjustly. Job 1:1 explains to the readers, Job was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil. Job was a man of great wealth, had 10 children, greatest of all the men of the east, and instructed his family in the way of the Lord before his time of great testing and tribulation. The context in Job chapter one, the readers will also find in verse six, Satan presented himself before God seeking the whole earth, in whom he could test to turn their back on God and curse God. God bragged on Job 1:8, Then the Lord said unto Satan, "Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God, and shuns evil?” God allowed the dimensions of suffering to Job to start all at the same time. Back-to-back. We find out in Job 1:20-22, Job worshipped the Lord after overwhelming news came to him. But, in all this he did not sin or charge God. This is Satan’s plan for many of the saints, to curse God, turn our backs on God and die in sin. Job’s wife after he was stricken with bolds all over his body, told him to curse God and die, messenger of Satan. But he did not. Is it ridiculous critics and accusers you think not come “Out of the Shadows” when you are going through intense, complexity, and dimensions of testing for purpose in the Kingdom of Heaven? We come to the discourse of Job (12:22-25) concerning the wisdom, power, and sovereignty of God, when his friends began to blame Job for the suffering, sin, and displeasing God. What is the significance of the context of scriptures?

  • Job was “in obedience” according to the will of God and blameless before God. Job repented to God and not man. (Job 1:1, Job 42:6)
  • The response to his friends represented the discourse of Job’s suffering concerning the depth of wisdom, power, and sovereignty of the God he knew which was in control. (Job 12:22-25)
  • Job’s “Shadow of Deep Darkness to Light,” represented a death within the darkness Job was in, but Job believed light was present, shadowed by God’s power. Job yet believed. (Job 12:9, 22-25)
  • The "Shadow of Deep Darkness to Light" uncovered his friends’ self-righteous acts. Their shadow of dark counsel representing the light of life in their own eye’s. (Job 12:1-2; 22)
  • Between Job chapters 13 to 36, Job’s friends, young men, and a bystander were messengers of Satan to buff and wear him down to lose the blessing of double divine restoral power from God. They all thought they were messengers of God, blinded by Satan, when they knew or in relationship with Job and knew of his relationship with God before all his great suffering. Job’s spiritual man rose each time, he had the Spirit of God working in him. But the natural and mental aspect would accept some of the dark counsel. Nevertheless, Job’s spirit continues to pray for help, relief, and even death. He overcame by prayer to the Lord, obedience to God, the fear of God, and faith in God’s power with words of affirmation of the Redeemer. (Job 1:20-21; Job 10; Job 13:15; Job 16; Job 17; Job 19:25; Job 23:10-17). Either way, Job knew his witness and reward was from Heaven.
  • Job was called “Out of the Shadow” of deep darkness to the light by the whirlwind of the Lord. (Job 38:1-2)
  • Job was called “Out of the Shadow” of deep darkness to answer God in maturity as a man. The challenge to grow up and stand up in whom God bragged on Job’s purpose. Servant of God. (Job 38:3)
  • God will let Satan, the enemies, and friends, go so far in their testing of faith and power of themselves. He is God, He instructs. He delivers. He kills and makes alive. (Job 2:6, Job 42:7)
  • Job’s "Shadow of Deep Darkness" revealed God’s creation of the Leviathan which roams in the depth of the ocean/sea. Truth of God’s wisdom, power, and sovereignty was revealed ending with this creation in the depth of darkness of the sea with God’s power over it. (Job 41:1-2, 8-11)
  • Job’s proximity, position, and purpose was in order with God’s “set time.” Left on recorder for the saints in scriptures as a testimony of the depth of suffering, injustice, and right relationship with God leading to His divine power of restoral. God is yet saying, “Have you considered what my servant Job went through?” It really put things in perspective. (Job 1:8, 13-19; Job 2:3, 5-8)
  • Job’s “Out of the Shadow” of deep darkness (suffering, grief, and critics/accusers) to the light of God, led to the opening of his natural eyes to his spiritual eye’s, transformed mind, new heart, and newness of transformed spirit. “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You.” This is what Job needed in his experience of suffering, grief, and testing. (Job 42:1-3, 5).
  • Job’s “Out of the Shadow” at the Word of God restored him double from God because of in obedience, repentance, faith, fortitude, and right choice to transition at the “set time” to abundant life. (Job 42:10).

​Concluding, the extreme diversity of the three biblical “Out of the Shadows” unveils the depth of transition coming from dimensions of proximity of shadows in transformation of death or life. It is a choice to overcome or succumb in testing, suffering, sickness, and relationship with the Godhead. It is a choice to believe the word the Lord sends to you in faith no matter what the situation has unfolded. If you can hear the Lord calling you “Out of the Shadow,” the Word of God will confirm it. Pray, pray, and pray. Never lose hope, trust, and have faith in the Lord. If God says it, hold fast to the Word of the Lord, just like Ehud, the called “Out of the Shadow” “I have a message from God for you” deliverer—Executor of Justice. Or as Job, “Though you slay me, yet will I trust.” Or as King Hezekiah, cry, cry, cry, weep, weep, weep, and plead, plead, plead, “Remember now, I pray, O Lord,” until you have transformed yourself in transition at the set time of “Out of the Shadow” manifestation of God’s power from the Kingdom of Heaven.

 Let “US” keep this perspective of Jesus Christ words of life and death, “For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will.” (John 5:20-21). Jesus Christ greatest gift to mankind represented His death on the cross, to bring salvation to a dying world. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6). Coming to salvation requires a repenting heart and coming “Out of the Shadow” of sin to transition into the light of life through Jesus Christ. 

Be Blessed and stay connected to Jesus,
