LEAPING on the MOUNTAINS
BY: RAY PRINZING
“The voice of my Beloved! Behold, He cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.” (Song of Solomon 2:8)
We would hear His voice! What is the message of the hour? He is coming, and He is “leaping upon the mountains, He is skipping upon the hills”, Praise God, “the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” (I Peter 4:17)
“Every mountain and hill shall be brought low.” (Luke 3:5) We prayed for a revival, we fasted, cried, pleaded with Him, “Lord, come to us”. He waits until we have reached that point of desperation, when we are ready to receive Him no matter how He comes. Then, as we hear His voice, we find it is a call to repentance, to holiness, to a deeper consecration, and He leaps on all our mountains. Mountains are symbolic of kingdoms. Man is prone to build his kingdoms, raising up a monument unto himself, to make a name for himself. But to see the establishment of HIS KINGDOM it is necessary that all ‘the kingdoms of this world become the kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ”, (Rev. 11:15) The greater the kingdom of man, the harder He will leap upon it, until all is subdued before Him.
But there is mercy in all of His judgments. He does not leap upon the hills, He lightly skips upon them. But everything that has reared its lofty peak into the heights, projecting the will of man to its peak, there comes the heavy foot of God to bring it low again. We find ourselves leveled before Him.
Yet, it is not all a matter of crushing, subduing, for there follows the merciful restoration of our God, as “every valley shall be filled, - and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; and all flesh shall see the salvation of God,” (Luke 3:5, 6) Then the glory of the Lord shall fill the earth, as the waters cover the sea. All shall be found to His praise, and He alone shall be exalted.
