Basic setup for how this works: Basic setup for how this works:
God is speaking extraordinary words through the common events of your life – right now.
The Lord is really involved in your life in a very personal way.
There’s a strange word in the Bible that we find 15 times throughout scripture. Its a word called “firmament.”
Genesis 1:6-8And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
If you want to see Heaven, you will find the details of the Kingdom in your firmament.
Well, I don’t know what my firmament is.fir·ma·ment – noun* the heavens or the sky, especially when regarded as a tangible thing.* a sphere or world viewed as a collection of people.
Your culture, your family, your tribe, your co-workers, your church, your media, your entertainment
He literally puts His word and displays His character through the things going on in your life. His attributes, what He thinks, How He is and His Heart toward you can be seen though the world you are viewing.
Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse…
Everything in the Kingdom is relational before it is functional and your functional ability to hear God speak is directly related to your personal relationship with God.
We will get back to that in just a minute.
Psalms 39:6Surely every man walks about like a shadow; Surely they busy themselves in vain; He heaps up riches, And does not know who will gather them.
Bruce AlmightyLord gave me a signal (caution ahead) God please show me a sign (a giant truck pulls right in front of him with a ton of signs in it)
He screams answer me!His pager goes off with 555-0123. It’s God saying, “Call me” and he says, “Sorry, don’t know you.”
God speaks relationally through prophetic type, shadow and parables.
Romans 5:14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come.
Hebrews 10:1For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect.
Matthew 13:9-16 (NKJV)”He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”The Purpose of Parables10 And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?”11 He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the [a]mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. 12 For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. 13 Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. 14 And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: ‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive; 15 For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed,Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears,Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,So that I should heal them.’ 16 But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear…
One of the ways you learn how God is speaking through ordinary things is to learn to steward the word and search out the matter through extraordinary events.
Last World War I Combat Veteran Dies At his death, Harry Patch of Great Britain, was 111 years, one month, one week, and one day old.
Jeremiah 1:11Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.”
The California quake in the World Series ⦁ CANDLESTICK…6.9⦁ Oakland A’s vs. San Francisco Giants ⦁ Oct. 17, 1989 in Candlestick Park⦁ 6.9 earthquake shook San Francisco for 17 seconds ⦁ Headlines read “The Sound of Fear” and “Series of Shaking”
ALSO ON THAT DAY:
Televangelist Jim Bakker was sentence to 45 years in prison for fraud in his television ministry⦁ The baker in the dungeon lost his head⦁ God will not put up with his anointed preachers ripping off their flock
Movie star Zsa Zsa Gabor was sentenced to four months in jail for slapping the police officer who pulled her over for driving without a license and drinking Jack Daniels while driving her $215,000 Rolls Royce. God will not put up with anyone slapping the law in the face.
WHAT COULD GOD BE SPEAKING THROUGH THESE EVENTS ON 10/17?
Deuteronomy 10:17 (October 17) For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes.

WONDER WOMAN – HER TIME HAS COMEAugust 2017 when the Great American Eclipse and the Revelation 12 sign in the heavens were about to show up
The Virgin woman in Revelation 12 is Israel When Israel is having birth pangs, it means the time of the gentiles has been fulfilled and the time for Jerusalem to rise and receive her messiah has come. Luke 21:24 – And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.⦁ 70 YEARS FROM THIS SIGN, ISREAL BECAME A NATION ⦁ 50 YEARS (ONE JUBILEE CYCLE) PRIOR TO THIS SIGN’S APPEARANCE, JERUSALEM CAME BACK INTO THE POSSESSION OF THE JEWS ⦁ THE TIME OF THE GENTILES IS ALMOST FULFILLED
Revelation 12:1-2 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
Wonder Woman (God speaking through pop culture)⦁ A Jew named Gal Godot played wonder woman ⦁ She represented Israel as Miss Israel in the Miss Universe Pageant⦁ She was pregnant when she was filming the movie ⦁ The movie promotions say “Her Time has come” – Israel’s time has come. The time of the Gentiles is almost over.
