The Bell is Ringing
~ where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty (2 Cor. 3:17)
“There’s a bell that is tolling and it seems distant in the land. But the angels of God hear it ring and the people of God whose ears are open to His sounds can hear that it rings again. And it is again the sound of liberty. And it is again the sound of freedom. And it is again the sound of the righteous arising to take up her cause. But the freedom that it rings and the freedom that it tolls and the freedom that it declares goes beyond the freedom of an earthly government and an earthly politic; it is the sound of heaven. It is the sound of the kingdom of God beginning to rise in all of the earth, and the sounds of heaven, the bells that begin to ring, will begin to ring and ring and ring until the fullness of God’s plan, until the fullness of His idea of the seat of heaven, the throne of God, be placed directly among the living, that Jesus would rule.
So you do well to look to His authority, you do well to look to His leadership. You do well to look to His lordship, for indeed the government is upon His shoulders. As you by faith draw upon Him as the Lord of all, His lordship will continue to manifest in this land, through every office of the land. So listen. Listen. Despite all the sounds around, despite the clamor, despite the sounds even of war, listen; for there is a bell that is ringing, and it is the bell of the Spirit, the bell of liberty, for where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. Thank you, Jesus. Bless the Lord.”
