Anyone that knows me or follows me here on Facebook knows I am a football fan. I love watching sports in general, but I really enjoy playing and watching football. It is also no secret that I am a Kansas City Chiefs fans as I spent 21 years in that city, before moving to Nashville. Now with that said, I want you to know I do not just watch football for the game alone when it is a big game like a Championship game or the Super Bowl, I am also listening for what the Lord is saying. In 2020 when the Chiefs went to the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers, the Lord spoke to me and said, ”National Jubilee”, it was Super Bowl 54 and the three colors between the two teams were red, white, and gold/yellow. I wrote a whole blog on this.
Now during this AFC Championship game between the Chiefs and the Bengals last Sunday, the first thing that stuck out to me was the final score, 20-23, we are in the year 2023, so there is something about this year that is significant, I believe this will be a year we will not forget for many reasons. But since sitting on this game for the past 3 days, I have sensed the Lord highlighting the play the Bengals are furious about. It has been called “The Do Over!” Meme’s have given the referees the MVP of the game, the city of Cincinnati is furious, the coach and players were very upset, and rightfully so. But what happened was the “TIME” was wrong, so the referee on the sideline came running out, blowing his whistle, but no one heard him because of the “CROWD NOISE”. The result was the Chiefs got a “REDO” on a third down play of which there was an incomplete pass.
Here is what I am hearing the Lord say about this, “I am resetting the timing, for people have been out of sync in their timing.” When the referee reset the clock to the right time, the Chiefs ran another play and got the first down, which was the first thing that led them to winning the game (it wasn’t the only thing). The Lord is putting us back in right timing and He is giving us a do over, now that the time is right. The enemy always wants to get us out of God’s timing, Daniel 2:21 says, “It is He (the Lord) who changes the times and the epochs…” The Lord is the judge of all, or in our parable the referee of the game. But there is one more thing with this time issue God is highlighting.
1 Chronicles 12:32 says, “Of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their command;” I don’t know if you will think I have lost it, am stretching it or what, but the Lord has been telling me ”I have put My people in the right timing, so now everything is going to move rapidly”. I read this verse in 1 Chronicles and it is the Super Bowl teams and timing. “Their Chiefs (Kansas City) were 200; and all their Brethren (Philadelphia- city of brotherly love – Eagles) were at their command.” God loves to speak to us, and confirm to us what He is doing and my friends this is such good news, we have been put in correct timing! Everything is about to work now for we are in God’s timing, not the enemies, ours or anyone else’s. He has given us a redo and we are about to win, celebrate and win some more.
