For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
1 John 5:7-8 KJV
His BREATH - Spirit - Breath of God Bears a Testimony Banner. There are three that testify: Spirit, Water and the Blood -- 1 John 5:8. God has formed a pathway to us.
There’s a scripture in Job 36 starting in verse 13:
The godless at heart nourish anger, they do not cry out even when he binds them. They die in their youth, and their life ends among the male cultic prostitutes. He delivers the afflicted by their afflictions, he reveals himself to them by their suffering. And surely, he drew you from the mouth of distress, to a wide place, unrestricted, and to the comfort of your table filled with rich food.
We sometimes have to get to a place of distress before we begin to hear God cry to us. It was there, that I began to think about how God cries out to us. When you look at Rev 3:20, it says: "Behold, Hey or Here I am standing at the door, anyone that hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him and dine, abide, dwell, rest, (bring restoration) sup (bring supplication) in him and he will in me."
Jesus said "No one can come to Me, unless the Father who sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up on the last day." (John 6:44). Unless the Father draws you to His son you can not hear his call. The Father in Heaven throws out a rope of hope, Jesus is our rope of HOPE.
Joshua 2:15 So she let them down by a rope through the window, for the house she lived. Rahab, she took God's kindness the goodness that only comes from God and threw it out as a cloak, a robe, a covering (God's bloodly Rope of Hope and extended the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Rahab had no idea that she was speaking (GOD'S Breath was speaking prophetically in her time.) This robe represented in history a timeline a tapestry of God's eternal goodness towards man. I can just see the words God's breath speak: my goodness and mercy is extended to you. His breath "word" was bracaded in the fibers of that rope. His love is eternal and long suffering. He has extended his heart, his wing, his strong arm and willing hand.
Proverbs 27:13 says, "I would have fainted, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living." I believe Rahab represented the Fathers Love. She was a representative of Father God's mercy.
This speaks of his Garden - Water - River of Life bearing a Testimony Banner.
Indeed, the LORD will comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places. And her wilderness He will make like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the LORD; Joy and gladness will be found in her, Thanksgiving and sound of a melody.
They will say, 'This desolate land has become like the Garden of Eden; and the waste, desolate and ruined cities are fortified and inhabited.'
The Glory of Zion
The wilderness and the desert will be glad, And the Arabah will rejoice and blossom; Like the crocus It will blossom profusely And rejoice with rejoicing and shout of joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, The majesty of Carmel and Sharon. They will see the glory of the LORD, The majesty of our God.
This speaks of his Road-Blood - Fire and Blood Bear a Testimony Banner
As he is calling us unto himself, he has given us an invitation. He has thrown out his scarlet soaked "rope of hope", extending it out to us, in our time of distress or need. He is our door of hope! He comes to us in our valley of despair! The valley there is a low place, a place of difficulty and trial, a place of affliction. The Hebrew word translated "hope" is Tikvah, which in its root meaning pictures a cord attached to the thing longed for.
God throws "us" a lifeline.
Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her. There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she will respond as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt.
Then in the verse Joshua 2, "Then she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house..." She has more fear of God than she had of the fear of man. First God comes into us, then we are invited by his blood, to grab a hold of His rope of hope or His blood soaked carpet (invitation!!).
He makes roads in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
Because I am doing something new! Now you will grow like a new plant. Surely you know this is true. I will even make a road in the desert, and rivers will flow through that dry land.
