“And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.” (Isaiah 45:3 KJV)
Seeking Treasures of Darkness
I am hearing that this is a time to be seeking out the treasures of darkness. We are seeing great exposure of darkness, as God is shining His light to bring forth His justice and His order to be established. There are hidden riches of truth He is admonishing us to find, and treasures of wisdom and revelation He desires to give. We are to use great discernment, as well as trust that God will give wisdom to those that ask.
“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” (James 1:5 KJV)
Even as we see the enemies of God spouting lies and accusations, we can use wisdom to know that the enemy is fearful because He knows that the Kingdom of God is expanding and the glory of God is rising. The devil will do all that he can to cover the truth with a lie, to try and subvert all that God is bringing forth, and to attempt to delay and derail God’s plans. But God gives wisdom for us to see what is happening and look for the hidden riches in the secret place, the treasures of darkness that are to be found and brought forth.
If the enemy is bringing division, we can step out boldly, in faith, believing that God is bringing forth a unity among His people in the spirit that is bringing great fear to the enemy’s camp. If the enemy is bringing debauchery and perversity, then we can know that God desires to bring forth His holiness and the purity of the Bride as never before, for the light shines brightest in the darkest of nights. Pure, holy oil is what the Lord is after; a people set apart for Himself, emptied of pride and ambition, so that He will be seen as the Most High God over all the earth.
In Strong’s Concordance, the word “treasure” in the Hebrew language means “a depository, an armory, cellar, garner, storehouse, treasure-house, treasury.” There are weapons He longs to give us for the battle at hand, as well as the garners from the storehouses – the provision to establish the Kingdom.
Are You in a Personal Darkness?
Also from Strong’s Concordance, the meaning of the word “darkness” in this verse includes “misery, destruction, death, ignorance, sorrow, wickedness, obscurity.”
Are you personally in darkness, misery, sorrow, obscurity? There are treasures that the Lord desires to give you in this place. They are hidden in the secret place. I hear Him calling your name, saying:
“I hear your heart cry, and I am here. Do not fear, for I am near. Your need is drawing My love towards you, and I am waiting for you to turn fully to Me so that I can fill every empty place. Look to Me and I will show you the hidden riches that are only found in darkness. There has been a veil over your eyes and mind from the expectations of the last season that were not met.
“I say to you that those places of fallow ground have now been broken open and the seeds that were long buried, even seeds that you have forgotten, are now coming forth for harvest. There are treasures and secrets that can only be found in Me. They are coming forth from My heavenly storehouse, and to you only will I grant access, for these treasures are the strategies and provision for your life. You must come near My heavenly throne; for these are fitted for you alone.
“Look to me, and you will see. There are treasures within you, seeds of destiny that I planted in your spirit before you were sent forth from eternity to the earth. Christ in you is the hope of glory, and now is the time for His life in you to come forth in fullness of glory. What you thought was dead and buried is coming forth from the tomb into the light of a new day. And there are even greater treasures, more than can be measured, that will follow in the days to come.
“For this is the season of new things, and a new order is being established. The provision is yet before you and will be revealed as you set Me first in the order of each day and set a guard around your heart to entrust all that you are, and all that you have, to Me. For I have begun a good work and I will be faithful to complete it. I will give you the wisdom and resources that are necessary to fulfill all that I have destined for your life. You are a carrier of My glory, an ambassador of My Kingdom, and all that I have is yours.”
The Rising of an Army
There is an army of pure ones rising, set-apart carriers of His glory, and the enemy wants to keep them bound in the darkness of depression, despondency and lack. BUT GOD has called us to a life of virtue and honor, a life filled with abundance, overflowing the banks of our borders with blessing that floods the lives of all that come into our (and His) presence. Now is the time of harvest, now is the time of abundance of blessing. There are keys for the Kingdom that He has for our personal lives and for the corporate Body. The treasures are waiting, for the time is at hand.
Arise in faith, and let the light of His truth flood your whole being. He will reveal the treasures of darkness and hidden riches found in the secret place. Now is the time to seek Him and bring forth all that He has prepared for His glory in this season!
“Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV)
