The Purpose of Divine Intervention
Wade E Taylor
“Intervention” is the suspension of the ordinary
law of approach to God, and the interposition of the Divine
hand to do things beyond man's attainment through prayer and
seeking. It is the way in which God has often bridged over
the short comings and failures of His servants.
Intervention is the state in which the Lord is the actor,
and man is acted upon. This will result in the elimination
of all independent action through the “lifting”
of those who are fully submitted to the Lord into their proper
state of pliability in His hands. It is God in the lead as
an aspect of the end time workings of the Lord, by which He
will appear to His servants (Parousia) in order to do exploits
through them, altogether beyond what they could believe for
“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened
heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were
of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither,
and I will show you things which must be hereafter.”
“And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold,
was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” Rev 4:1-2
“... and have made us kings and priests to our God:
we shall reign on the earth.” Rev 5:10.
Because the Creator made man with a high order of powers
of will and gave him the title deed to the earth, with dominion,
God chose to not intrude upon these rights, even though man
completely failed in his probationary test, and as a result,
forfeited his dominion authority.
Therefore, by an exceeding wise and benevolent plan, the
Eternal Son became a man through incarnation, bore the curse
that came upon man due to his disobedience, and paid the full
debt to justice, totally defeating the enemy, and in resurrection
became the Heir of all things.
The Lord Jesus Christ has set before the redeemed an opportunity
to partake with Him of these conveyed powers, now restored
to their proper place. This offer is made to all those who
qualify as overcomers.
“And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the
end, to him I will give power over the nations; he shall
rule them with a rod of iron.” Rev 2:26-27a.
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” Matt
Because these overcomers have been slow in coming into the
exercise of this end-time spiritual authority, intervention
During this time, which is referred to as being “the
day of the Lord," there will be great tribulation, which
brings the judgments of God. During this, the time of His
Parousia, these “overcomers” will have a role
and a responsibility to fulfill, as they are to be the instruments
of the tribulation, and not victims of it.
“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph
and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in
place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those
are being saved, and among those who are perishing. To the
we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other
aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these
things?” I Cor 2:14 16.
These will be the source of tribulation to the world. Paul
is saying that during this time, we will become a fragrant
aroma to all those who have received Jesus Christ as their
Savior and Lord. Because we are the instruments for judgment
to all those who do not believe, the unbeliever will be uncomfortable
in our presence due to this “aroma of life” which
we receive from Jesus. They will not want us near them because
we will appear to them as being an aroma of death to death.
"For the LORD takes pleasure in His people; He will
beautify the meek with salvation. Let the saints be
joyful in glory; let them sing aloud on their beds.
"Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and
a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance
on the nations and punishments on the peoples, to
bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with
fetters of iron; To execute on them the written
judgment; This honor have all His saints. Praise
the LORD" Psalm 149:4 9.
Glory always relates to the presence of the Lord. Thus, we
are to be joyful in His presence. Also, we are to let “the
high praises of God be in our mouth.” We exalt the Lord
by declaring Him to be whom He has said He is; our Righteousness,
our Sanctification, our Provider, our Healer, and the One
who is present in our lives.
Not only are we to praise the Lord with our mouth, but we
are to have a two edged sword in our hand. The purpose for
this is to execute vengeance on the nations and judgment on
all peoples. This will be done by the saint who is singing
the high praises of God with this two edged sword in his hands,
and will result in their kings being bound with chains.
We are approaching this day of His “Parousia”
in which we will be empowered through Divine intervention.
As we give expression to the high praises of God, we will
be given this flaming sword to bind these kings and their
nobles in fetters of iron. We will have a part in the execution
of these judgments and tribulation while we are still in our
mortal bodies. In our present state, we may say, “how
can this be?” However, we are not to be concerned with
our apparent lack, but we are to look for Jesus, expecting
Him to come in intervention, and manifest Himself in and through
This state of Divine Intervention is a level of attainment
which lifts us into the place of becoming a partaker in the
functioning of the Kingdom of God. All too few are aware of,
or are seeking, this state of Divine activity. However, at
this present time, many are being stirred by the Holy Spirit,
and are beginning to enter.
In preparation for His return, Jesus will begin to personally
appear to many people. As a result of these appearances, many
things will begin to happen. There will be a substantial increase
in the quality of worship, and of the prophetic. This is because
He is coming to equip, or make ready, a people who will perform
His end-time work on the earth.
It is of vital importance that we grasp the idea that these
“interventions” will bring into clear view the
purpose of the Lord in the closing out of the Church age,
and the establishing of the Millennial Kingdom age.
