Intertestamental Period is not just the point of time that God was not directly talking to Israel, but it is also the time when we as Christians don’t hear for the Spirit of the Lord. Sometimes we think that we have done something to anger God, but it’s just time when God has already told us to do something and we don’t want to do it. Yeah, in all of our ‘sanctification’ we get disobedience in the commands of the Lord. The main reason why God is not talking to us is because He has nothing more to say to us about this matter.
I was in this space of time and it really frustrated for me. All the fasting, praying, laboring in the Spirit, and trying to get some fresh manna weren’t going to make God move on my account. The last Word I got still remained, “Wait right here, I’ve be back.” Even though I was ready to move to the next place, the place wasn’t ready for me.
It’s like being told to be at a dinner party at 8 sharp, and you arrive at 6:30. None of the place setting is on the table, most of the food is still being prepared, and the hosts are half dressed. You are left to walk around the house looking crazy until the on-time guest show up. You can be a little early but not too early because you are just the guest and not a part of the set-up crew. God was still preparing me for what He had for me. He knew that I would like it, but He also knew that I would not want it if my mind wasn’t ready to accept it. Baby formula is expensive but it’s cheaper than cleaning up after a baby’s ‘stomach’ when you give them regular food.
“Be still and know that I am GOD.” Psalm 46: 10 was the only thing God would say other then “Wait”. I also had to remember how Abraham walked with the Lord GOD. Faithfully. Romans 4: 20, “He (Abraham) staggered not at the Promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in Faith, giving Glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what He (God) had promised, He (God) was able also to perform.”KJV The last Word from God still stands. God has not changed His Mind, and until you do what God said He would finish what He started.
