God gave us an amazing promise which is that through much tribulation, we enter the kingdom of God.
We must remember to praise and thank God in everything, not just the good things but also for the trials and the tribulations. It’s not a favourite scripture that we place on our fridges but it’s the King’s promise and purpose that somehow, in the glorious, magnificent, awesome Father’s intention for each and every one of us, tribulation is part of the package of being citizens of the other realm, the Kingdom of God. Ofcourse, it is not only through much tribulation that we enter the kingdom; this is just one of many ways.
As the people of God who live in the world of economical, relational, political and social problems, what is the role of faith communities as a whole? Are we to believe we are as powerless in this world? Do we sit back in a fearful stance and ring our hands with no hope? Do we have a God who isn’t interested in helping and has left us to fend for ourselves? So many questions run through our minds in times of un-certainty.
I had a dream a while ago and in it, these people were caught up with a book that was being passed around and they were all bewitched with its power. All of a sudden, I knew the name of the book. It was entitled ‘The Lost Art of Begging”. It was very apparent that they were all under its power. Could this be a strong delusion that a lot of God’s people are under?
I was speaking at a meeting recently and out of my mouth blurted; “It’s time for The Solution to be applied to the eyes of the Body of Christ”; it was a forceful proclamation and I knew I had to ponder what I heard. My prayerful pondering has made me ask, ‘Are we as the people of God, trapped in some un-righteous realm that has us in captivity to ‘The Lost Art of Begging’? Are we trapped in a vortex of error, that keeps us not knowing who we are and the power made available to us as ‘sons & daughters’ of a Royal Power of righteousness to decree into things around our world and see transformation of the Kingdom kind?
Where are the “Solutionists” who haven’t allowed the log jams of disasters and collapses to possess their vision? They have had eye salve applied to their ‘perceiver’ and decree solutions to all spheres of society.
We have to pursue the LORD to bring us out of all un-righteous realms and influences, so we can see answers come to the godlessness running through the veins and hearts of the Cities/Nations. Oh Father in Heaven, turn on the ‘Light of Your Son’ to show us how to come out from amongst the influences of darkness to be free Light Bearing and Light Breathing Solutionists to a decaying world around us.
The Lord has been examining His people. Do we have a paradigm of working for the Lord or with the Lord? In our assignments, if we see ourselves as working for the Lord, we will easily tire out or grasp for anything that will work, or we will maneuver to meet that ‘bottom line’. The Lord has declared that we are sons and daughters, and not slaves. As a slave, we will strive to succeed or climb the ladder but a son or daughter lives in a state of rest because of God’s ability at work in and through him or her. A barometer for the sons or daughters would therefore be ‘How much rest am I living in or working from?’ God has prepared a ‘rest’ for His people and we are only to strive to enter into that rest alone and nothing else. I have heard Graham Cooke say that ‘rest is the ultimate weapon for a believer’. Let us lay aside every weight and encumbrance that robs us of rest in Christ. As his children, we are partakers of Christ’s inheritance, we cannot earn it. Philippians 4:13 says that ‘we can do all things through (with) Christ who strengthens us’.
When His sons and daughters realize the surpassing greatness of His power that is available toward us who believe, we can live from that realm of being a joint heir with Christ and see Him do the impossible through us. It is God who is at work in us, both to will and do His good pleasure. So, let us allow Him to examine our hearts to see where we stand as one that works for Him or with Him.
Let us forsake any self-inspired perspective and gain our Father’s view that empowers us to be His children who have access to all that He is and all the He has, to see His kingdom advanced over all the earth. They that are led by the Spirit are the sons of God. In case you have not noticed lately, the whole earth is groaning, waiting for us to manifest a mature son-ship. Let us continue on the path as sons and daughters, ambassadors with our King, executing His will in our families, businesses, various spheres of influence and throughout the earth. May the Father bestow upon us, this ultimate weapon of His ‘rest’ in all that we are and all that we do, as His children.
There is an apostolic door opening up for His sons and daughters to learn how to flow with this type of unction to co-labor with the Trinity. They that learn to enter the ‘Rest’ of the Spirit will then be commissioned to run with an apostolic torch to set new territories ablaze with the King’s gaze.
We have the privilege of being chosen by God to be a holy nation, a royal priesthood unto Him to enjoy every spiritual blessing in Christ, our inheritance which is the realm of the Kingdom of Heaven. In the Spirit of infinite Wisdom that God is, we are to trust Him as He takes us and leads us into realms of His Glory. We cannot enter or inherit the kingdom unless we become like a child.
The Lord is increasing discernment of His voice. He is sharpening and heightening sensitivity to Him because He absolutely loves us. At times, we may feel that the Lord has abandoned us but it may be because He is calling us to a new place, so that we are not stuck. He surely is leading us into green pastures and unto right paths for Jesus’ sake. He is our Teacher who is now appearing to show us all things of the Father’s great love. Do not question the Father’s love; just learn to drink of it. His love is experienced with the heart more than figured out with the mind. It is better ‘caught’ than taught.
The Father desires for us to lean heavier into Holy Spirit and His control and His leading for He will carry us into a greater expression of the yoke of the Lord that is easy and light. A clearer awareness of Holy Spirit’s workings; a deeper relationship with Holy Spirit is vital in the days ahead.
Now is the time to embrace and buy the oil of bridal revelation. This oil of revelation is spending quality intimate time getting to know our wonderful King’s heart and as He directs, following through in executing His will and decrees on the earth. They that purchase this oil will be joined to the Lord and grow in oneness with Him. It is from that place of union with the Warrior King, that the Father will be pleased to reveal through the Bride, the Spirit of Adoption which is Jesus. Our oneness with Him will therefore manifest authentic authority to release His governmental decrees upon the earth. This is the time for the people of God to press in for the high calling; buying the oil of personal revelation of oneness with Christ Jesus, our Bridegroom Warrior, our King of Glory. His Son-ship shines through the bride as she is so yielded and leaning on His Fullness and not relying on her own intellectual power. His good works which were prepared before everything was created will be released through the bride as she manifests His image and likeness of glory on the earth. She operates from this place of knowing that she is seated in Heaven with the King and stands on the earth in His stead (His Name). She executes the King's will wherever she is led to do so. (Dan 11:32b…but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.-NKJV)
It is by His abundance of grace that a new level of sonship will manifest, where paradigms of spiritual slavery will fall away because we are being unplugged from the old patterns of thinking. In the new season, a higher level of son-ship will be revealed through a consecrated Bride and a greater maturity will come forth. We will begin to see from the King’s heart, the highest perspective and we will begin to live a ‘kingdom life’. We will be better able to enter that higher realm of His rest and abide with Him in that place. Greater release of our Father's presence and voice will begin to appear and we will begin to focus on what matters most to the Mind of Christ in the coming days and seasons. God is releasing messenger angles at this time to impart creative gifts, anointings, mantles and new wineskins so let’s position our hearts to buy oil while there’s still time.
You are coming up the mountain. Well done, My beloved! You have not shrunk back like the people of old. I bless your hunger for Me. I bless your hunger to see. I bless your hunger that is of Me. You have not quenched that hunger but are learning to embrace Me. Many have not. Many are content to have the thinking, “Moses you go and we will obey.” You are of the Throne-Room company. I am choosing from all over the earth. I am choosing to upgrade My sons and daughters to a class of a higher learning university; a higher grade for many are passing into a new level of learning. You are My Company for breakthrough. As you go, the rest of the army will come. They will come. Be not distracted by the ones on the fence for an hour will come when they will smell the fragrances of the breakthrough and they will come. Be not distracted, for they will come. Your purpose is at hand. Your purpose is to be with Me. Where I am, you are also. As I am in heaven, so you are in the earth. You are full of power and authority. You are full of wisdom and understanding. Let go of the ‘lack’ mindset. Let go of the saying ‘you have not’. Come up, I have a new seat; a new room. I have a new broom. It is a golden broom. It represents My holy nature. It will displace the ungodly nature. Where you go, I will go. Well done! Do not get stuck in what is old. Do not get stuck in old defaults of ‘business as usual’. Some of you may have to let go of your favorite formula. Take care that it does not become a moldy method. A moldy method becomes rancid. Discern My life on what tool to you should use. Discern the life-flow. My life is in your belly. New whirlwinds are coming, just for you; that which you have searched for. The blood, sweat and tears have paid much for a breakthrough. Those unrighteous barriers that have been exalted around you are being displaced. He is turning things around.
As we see the gate of ‘Cross Over’ and behold the radiant glory, you will perceive with your heart and be changed into a very wealthy people. It is not a wealth to build empires but you will be builders of My people. I am restoring the true temple. The true temple is not made by brick and mortar. Behold My radiant glory and everything will be turned to gold as you lay hold of that golden broom to sweep My house clean. These are days of habitation for I am longing to make you My dwelling place where I can remain. For those who have ears, let them hear for they will become a habitation for the glory of God.
