See and Hear by the Spirit What Time It Is!
Dean Bye is speaking from the Mount of Olives, where numerous Jewish people have been buried and are awaiting the resurrection of the dead. It is from this mountain that our Messiah ascended into heaven, and to this mountain that He will be returning one day!
Dean asks, “Why do we want to intercede for the Jewish people, pray and be about the Father’s business in this hour? –It has everything to do with the resurrection from the dead!”. As Paul points out in Romans 11:15, “For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?”
We’re living in the hour of their acceptance. God is accepting His people & His city Jerusalem, and He’s accepting them through a people that once were not His people, but have now been adopted into His family to make them jealous. The unity that Jesus prayed about (and that Paul spoke about) was between Jews and Gentiles, coming to the Father as one new man in their Messiah (Eph 2: 11-16).
Furthermore, we have been given the Holy Spirit for more than to experience the evidence of salvation, the fruit of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit in our lives. By the Holy Spirit, we have been given eyes to see and ears to hear the prophetic Scriptures that are unsealed to us in this hour, revealing God’s restoration of Israel and of the Kingdom to Israel. Yes, we are living in that hour, and we are called by God as Watchmen to declare, bring witness to, pray and intercede for the fulfillment of His purposes.
As we see by the Spirit “what time it is”, we can pray according to the Father’s will and know what to do as it relates to Israel and Jerusalem in this hour
