A Cake and Not a Casket

by | Oct 19, 2021 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

“It looks like the end, but it is not.” The words came as praise & worship neared a zenith and pinged at our church’s Sunday morning service. I knew God was speaking:

“Just as I said to the Zarephath widow with her son and her last crumbs of food, ‘It looks like the end but it is not.'”

Then a picture came to me of a tunnel painted on a mountainside. What was the Lord saying?

“Painted tunnels fooled the coyote and stopped him from going forward. Don’t be fooled by pictures of doom. Just make Me a cake first, for I’m making more life for you and opening up a new beginning. It is not the end!”

I believe this word is for our nation and for the weary yet valiant body of Christ. As threats of America’s doom prevail, God is encouraging you to make a cake and not a casket. Fight the feelings of national depression and instead make Jesus a little cake first. Make Him a cake from your precious, last crumbs of praise and your precious faith. It looks like the end but it is not. Hope arise!

Your prayers may feel as frozen and flat as that coyote after he hits the mountain’s face with a tunnel painted on it. Is God’s open door a mirage? Can He make a way of escape for this nation and open a door of deliverance no man can shut? Keep praying!

Your spiritual confidence may be as sturdy as the Styrofoam gravestones in your unsaved neighbors’ yard at Halloween. As a Christian, you know who has bewitched them but who has bewitched you into holding back? (“O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you…having begun in the Spirit” Gal. 3:1; 3. KJV). Knock on the door and witness again! Run past the pretend goblins and the real ones nestled in their lives. Go break the spell. Keep believing !

Make the cake and not the casket.

“O foolish Galatians who hath bewitched you…Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect in the flesh?” (Gal. 3:1; 3).

“So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering sticks: and he called to her, and said, ‘Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink’ … And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, ‘Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand.’

“And she said, As the Lord thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.

“And Elijah said to her: Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it to me, and after make for thee and for thy son.

“For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth.

“And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days” (1 Kings 17:10-15, KJV). {eoa}
