Experiencing Christ

Earth Controls Heaven (2)

Ezekiel 36:37 Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Moreover for this I will be inquired of by the house of Israel to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock. Isaiah 45:11 Thus says Jehovah, the Holy One of Israel and the One who formed him, ask Me about the things to come concerning My sons, and concerning the work of My hands, command Me.

(Part 2 of 2)
God has a purpose to increase the number of the house of Israel so that the Israelites would increase like a flock [Eze 36:37]. Those who do not know God will say, “If God wants to increase the number of the Israelites like a flock,
He could go ahead and do it. Who could stop Him?” But this verse says that God must be inquired of first before He will accomplish it for them. This is a clear principle: Even though God decides on a matter, He will not do it immediately. He would increase the house of Israel only after they inquired of Him. He wants the earth to control heaven.

Brothers and sisters, is not this word [in Isa. 45:11] most peculiar? Concerning the sons and the work of His hand, God says that we can command Him. We would almost be afraid to use the word command. How can man command God? All those who know God realize that man cannot be haughty before Him. But God Himself says, “Concerning My sons, and concerning the work of My hands, command Me.” This is the earth controlling heaven. It does not mean that we force God to do what He does not want to do. Rather, it means that we can command God to do what He wants to do. This is our position. After we know God’s will, we can say to Him, “God, we want You to do this. We are determined that You should do this. God, You must do this.” We can utter such strong and powerful prayers before God. We have to ask God to open our eyes to see the kind of work He is doing in this age. In this age all His work is based on this position. Heaven may want to accomplish something, but heaven will not do it alone; heaven waits for the earth to do it first, and then heaven does it. Although the earth stands in the second place, at the same time, it also stands in the first place. The earth must move before heaven will move. God wants the earth to move heaven.
