Apostle Sergio Enríquez O.
The inheritance given from God to each one of us as a substance which is our spirit and to the spirit is given the soul and the body; the spirit has to give back to God Who is the owner of it all, and we well know that we do not have a full concept of the meaning of the integral part of our being, however it’s one of the many things we learn in our reunions to learn each day more and more through the Holy Spirit we have the revelation from God the Father.
Therefore, the times we must get to know them, and by instinct we get to the knowledge of some of our times:
Sal 90:12 RSV so teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.
Ecle 3:1RSV for everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
Ecle: 3:2 RSV a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
Therefore we must understand that all the times which proceed the time of birth (Alpha) and the time to die, (Omega) will be just in the midst of these; we should know the time of parting from this earth, and have the wisdom to act accordingly, because it is not a tragedy our parting when our time of life and by instinct we could know our time to die.
Hosea: 13:13 RSV the pains of childbirth come for him, but he is an unwise son; for now he does not present himself at the mouth of the womb. It’s the birth of a unwise (imprudent) son who does not know the time of birth and does not look for the birth channel on time, but this child did not know the time of birth. But we have to have the knowledge of the inheritances given to us of what we should do in due time of our life.
1Re 2:1RSV When David’s time to die drew near, he charged Solomon his son, saying, 2:2 “I am about to go the way of all the earth. Be strong, and show yourself a man,
He knew the time of his death, therefore he knew what to do.
Gén 49:1RSV Then Jacob called his sons, and said, “Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you what shall befall you in days to come.
Here he is telling others their time, but he also knew his own.
Songs: 2:7 RSV I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the hinds of the field that you stir not up nor awaken love until it please.
We should know the times for when the awakening of love in due time for each one of us; not too young to find a mate or too late in time for our marriage.
Numb 24:14 RSV and now, behold, I am going to my people; come, I will let you know what this people will do to your people in the latter days.”
The prophet knows the time to go back to his people, and this is the last prophesy I tell you, but I will prophesy what will happen to them in the latter days. He knew his own time and others.
Hag 1:2 RSV “Thus says the LORD of hosts: This people say the time has not yet come to rebuild the house of the LORD.” 4 “Is it a time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, while this house lies in ruins?
God is telling us that is TIME to edify the body of Christ, and the body of Christ entered another dimension.
2Kings 5:26 RSV But he said to him, “Did I not go with you in spirit when the man turned from his chariot to meet you? Was it a time to accept money and garments, olive orchards and vineyards, sheep and oxen, menservants and maidservants?
There are times to accept offers and time to deny offers.
2Re 4:8 RSV One day Elisha went on to Shumen, where a wealthy woman lived, who urged him to eat some food. So whenever he passed that way, he would turn in there to eat food.
She knew the time to make such offer to the prophet, and he accepted because he also knew there was the right time.
Numbers: 14:40 RSV and they rose early in the morning, and went up to the heights of the hill country, saying, “See, we are here, we will go up to the place which the LORD has promised; for we have sin. They did not obey when there was the time to do what God wanted them to do, and they went back after God told them that there was no time to do. That cost them 40 years in the desert because they did not know the time.
1Cr 12:32 RSV of Issachar men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, two hundred chiefs, and all their kinsmen under their command.
There is almost impossible to have a relative of blood to be under your orders, because of the blood relation it is very difficult to accept orders and be obedient. And for example to accept him as an spiritual father; this happens because they are not humble enough, and they do not know the time, and do not have the knowledge and the wisdom as the sons of Issachar who knew the time for others.
We should pray to our Lord and ask him to help us know our time, the time of His visitation; the time for activating the gifts God has given us and put them to work for Him.
