THINGS TO CONSIDER FOR 2016

The following thoughts, insights and musings are based upon what I am seeing and hearing concerning our present reality and they are very much a part of our new normal.

Many of us have entered into the place of the press  together and the multi-cluster pressing will continue until there is nothing left of who we have become apart from Him and one another. It will continue until all that is flowing out of us is the pure, unadulterated fruit of the vine. When the crushing and  pressing are complete,  what remains will be capable of carrying and containing the new wine of revelation. Then the saying, ‘He saved the best for last’ will have a brand new meaning. Remember, the blessing is in the cluster, but the life is in the crushing.

It is absolutely essential to know why we believe what we believe to be true. Soulish prognostications, false doctrine and bad theology will not serve us in His greater Kingdom purpose.

We sincerely need a clearer understanding of the revelation of Messiah Yahshua, the fellowship of the mystery of the brotherhood,  and a better understanding of the consummation of all things.

Yahshua said, “UPON THIS ROCK, I WILL BUILD MY EKKLESIA, AND THE GATES OF HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST IT”

NOTE: {THE ROCK} – is the revelation of Messiah Yahshua and He is presently revealing Himself to His Sons around the world.

Yahshua said, I AM
John 8:58 – (YAHWEH – IS)

He is the pattern Son:

1). He is bread of life
2). He is the light of the world
3). He is the good shepherd
4). He is the resurrection and the life
5). He is the way, the truth and the life
6). He is the true vine
7). He is the first and the last, the alpha and omega. The beginning and the end.

He is Sovereign:

The revelation of Messiah Yahshua is the foundation, the cap stone and chief cornerstone of the house. Yahshua is building the Father’s house and it shall be known as a house of prayer for all nations.

The global community is made up of sons, brothers and friends who know one another by Holy Spirit. They recognize that we are sons of the same Father and brothers of the same family.

We can no longer afford to know one another by the flesh or (man-made distinctions, delineations or established designations)

The Scripture does not teach that we are building a Him a house, opening a church or establishing a ministry. On the contrary, WE are the HOUSE,  the  EKKLESIA,  and we need to count it a high privilege to be considered a part of His ongoing WORK and MINISTRY.

Note: It is not OUR house, OUR people, or OUR ministry. WE are HIS and HIS alone.

We need to reject any and everything that separates or divides us from HIM and ONE ANOTHER.

As sons of the Kingdom, we must come into agreement with the prayer of Yahshua in (John 17:21) and we must fully embrace the Father’s heart concerning our oneness in Him. (Ephesians 4:1-6)

Yahshua said, “a house divided against itself, cannot stand.” “If two of you agree on earth as concerning anything, it shall be done unto them.” “Where two or three are gathered together in My name, I Am there in the midst of them.” “Fear not little flock for it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.

If we refuse to come together in Him, our influence and impact will continue to wain. If we fail to embrace one another in Him, we may soon find ourselves alienated, isolated and adrift as castaways.

Note: A better understanding of the fullness of times and the consummation of all things will come when we fully embrace our destiny as Sons of the Kingdom and find ourselves in Him with one another. Selah!

Note: In no way should these thoughts and insights be considered the final word on any subject.

However. they should be prayerfully considered in light of what Holy Spirit is saying to the sons of the Kingdom and His Ekklesia.

Grace and Peace.

Blessings

Properly Discerning the Body of Messiah – The Book

NEW BOOK RELEASE – NOW AVAILABLE!

The past forty-four years of ministry have been a wondrous adventure of exploring the fathomless depth of His plan and purpose for my life. There have been times along the way that I thought that my journey was coming to an end, and then there have those moments when seeing a new horizon challenged my heart to continue to pursue the undiscovered aspects of His purpose for my life. I think it would be safe to say that my life in Him would be best characterized by a glorious quest for the REALITY of the TRUTH and a better understanding of HIS ORIGINAL INTENT. That quest has led me down paths that were long since grown over due to a lack of travel. It has also led me to the reality of the truth concerning our history, heritage and legacy as the people of Yahweh.

RELATIONALLY FUNCTIONAL ~VS~RELATIVELY DYSFUNCTIONAL

“Our history and heritage as a people is not limited to our personal religious experiences or our basic human understanding.”

It has led me to the reality of the truth concerning His original intent for all of creation. It has led me to a better understanding of the answers to the basic questions of life.

Question # 1: Who am I?

Answer: I AM a SON…

Question # 2: What is my reason for living?

Answer: To fulfill the practical will and purpose of Yahweh for my life…

Question # 3: Where am I going?

Answer: My present understanding of the Eternal Now has granted me entrance into the Eternal Kingdom, where I am living and abiding forever, life without end…

  • How do the answers to these questions fit into His plan and purpose for my life?

The answers to these questions will lead us to our manifest destiny as sons of the Kingdom of Yahweh.

The Apostolic Commission – Pt 1

The following passage of Scripture was received by my wife (Julia) on June 16, 2009 at 12:00 a.m. in the morning. I thought that it was a true word for that time, and it continues to speak to where we are in this season.   

Isaiah 6:8–13   And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” And he said, “Go, and say to this people: “‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand; keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’ Make the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and blind their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.” Then I said, “How long, O Lord?” And he said: “‘Until cities lie waste without inhabitant, and houses without people, and the land is a desolate waste, and the Lord removes people far away, and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.  And though a tenth remain in it, it will be burned again, like a terebinth or an oak, whose stump remains when it is felled.” The holy seed is its stump. ESV

 In the past five-plus years this passage of scripture has come to mean a lot more to us than it did when it was first quickened to my wife, and while we continue to look for the land of our fathers and the people of our tribe, we know in our heart that His seed still remains like the stump of a tree that has been cut down. The seed lives…BELIEVE!

Note: The past decade for many of us has been about stripping, gutting and crushing everything about our lives and ministries.

 It was like being demoted, downsized and exiled to the back side of the desert. It was like being publically humiliated and paraded through the streets naked for all to see and mock. It was like being laid open, vulnerable and exposed to the elements. (Stripped)

 Philippians 1:21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. ESV

Philippians 3:7-8 But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ. ESV

 Philippians 4:12I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. ESV

It was like having your entrails ripped out by a meat hook and drawn and quartered by a team of wild horses. It was like not having the strength or courage to continue. It was like your head is on the chopping block and all you have known of life has come to an end. (Gutting)

 It was like carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders, while trying to breathe with an elephant sitting on your chest. It was like everything in your world was imploding and collapsing in on itself. (Crushing)

 Note: I have come to understand that everything that we have become apart from Him is dying or being systematically killed off.

 Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. ESV

Colossians 2:9-15 For  in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,  and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead. And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses,  by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands.

This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.

In Him we live, move and have our being is becoming our new reality, and for me to live is Messiah and to die is gain, is our reasonable service.

Question: What has this season been all about?

1). This season has been about dying to ourselves and learning to live in, by and through Him.

Acts 17:26-28 And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, for “‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said,“‘For we are indeed his offspring.

Ephesians 2:4-7 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us,  even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—  and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

He made us alive together.

He raised us up together.

We are now seated with Him in Heavenly places. (This truth speaks to the past, present and future) – (Purpose–That He might show the immeasurable riches of His grace in kindness toward us in the ages to come)

 

The Apostolic Commission – Pt 2

2). This season has been about going down, descending and fading away. It has taken us through the dark night of the soul, the valley of the shadow of death, and levels of unmitigated HELL. And like Yahshua, we have learned the importance of being obedient by the things we have suffered.

Ephesian 4:9-10 – (In saying, “He ascended,” what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower regions, the earth? He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.)

Hebrews 5:8-9  Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered.  And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him,

1 Peter 3:18-19 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit,  in which he went and proclaimed to the spirits in prison,

Note: If we are to know Him in the power of His resurrection, we are going to have to be willing to start at the bottom of the list and learn the way of humility and suffering.

 Philippians 3:10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. NKJV

Note: Knowing Him in the power of His resurrection requires being conformed to His death and sharing in the fellowship of His sufferings. The only way up is down. The only way out is in.  We will go down and become nobody in the eyes of all of creation. We will become of no reputation before we will know the power of His resurrection. Dying don’t come easy; but it is mandatory. There is no other way to live in, by and through Him.

 3). This season has been about learning to hear the voice of the Spirit, and obeying His directives for our lives. It has been about being led by Holy Spirit into the ascended life and the consummation of all things.

John 5:24  “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.

Romans 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

4). This season has been about discovering our inheritance as sons and making us responsible citizens of His Kingdom.

5). This season has been about learning to live by faith, being empowered by Holy Spirit and trusting Yahweh with our life and future. It has been about NOT being moved by what we see, hear feel or think.

2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.

6). This season has been about preparing us for the great spiritual awakening of His sons in this generation. He has torn, healed and raised us up together. He has wounded, bruised and chastened us so that we can be touched and moved by the feeling of humanities weaknesses.

Note: Religion and government are the same. They are all about power and control. He who has the power has the control…

 Note: His sons are waking up to who they are NOT in Him, and it is nothing nice. They have come to understand that they have been denied access and lied to by the forefathers and religious leaders of our time. They are angry, disappointed and determined to break out of the prisons that have kept them bondage for so long. There is a great escape and migration taking place as I speak and they are all singing the same song. ‘We’re not gonna take it – anymore’

7). This season has been about us finding one another in life and becoming properly related to one another in the ongoing apostolic work. It has been about finding points of agreement around which we can align, and about forming alliances with those with whom you can work more closely.

It has been about coming together for His greater Kingdom purpose.

Note: The problem as I see it is, after ten years, many of us are still wandering around in the wilderness, going around the mountain and twiddling our thumbs, as it pertains to the Kingdom Equation and  a better conclusion.  

The Kingdom Equation;

 Agreement + Alignment + Alliance = Advancement

Note: Holy Spirit spoke to me the other day and said; “The last ten years has only been a prelude to what is coming, if my people don’t sincerely repent, change and amend our ways”

The question still remains; “whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”

The Apostolic Ministry

1 Corinthians 4:1-21 Don’t imagine us leaders to be something we aren’t. We are servants of Christ, not his masters. We are guides into God’s most sublime secrets, not security guards posted to protect them. The requirements for a good guide are reliability and accurate knowledge. It matters very little to me what you think of me, even less where I rank in popular opinion. I don’t even rank myself. Comparisons in these matters are pointless. I’m not aware of anything that would disqualify me from being a good guide for you, but that doesn’t mean much. The Master makes that judgment. So don’t get ahead of the Master and jump to conclusions with your judgments before all the evidence is in. When he comes, he will bring out in the open and place in evidence all kinds of things we never even dreamed of—inner motives and purposes and prayers. Only then will any one of us get to hear the “Well done!” of God. All I’m doing right now, friends, is showing how these things pertain to Apollos and me so that you will learn restraint and not rush into making judgments without knowing all the facts. It’s important to look at things from God’s point of view. I would rather not see you inflating or deflating reputations based on mere hearsay. For who do you know that really knows you, knows your heart? And even if they did, is there anything they would discover in you that you could take credit for? Isn’t everything you have and everything you are sheer gifts from God? So what’s the point of all this comparing and competing? You already have all you need. You already have more access to God than you can handle. Without bringing either Apollos or me into it, you’re sitting on top of the world—at least God’s world—and we’re right there, sitting alongside you! It seems to me that God has put us who bear his Message on stage in a theater in which no one wants to buy a ticket. We’re something everyone stands around and stares at, like an accident in the street. We’re the Messiah’s misfits. You might be sure of yourselves, but we live in the midst of frailties and uncertainties.

You might be well-thought-of by others, but we’re mostly kicked around. Much of the time we don’t have enough to eat, we wear patched and threadbare clothes, we get doors slammed in our faces, and we pick up odd jobs anywhere we can to eke out a living. When they call us names, we say, “God bless you.” When they spread rumors about us, we put in a good word for them. We’re treated like garbage, potato peelings from the culture’s kitchen. And it’s not getting any better. I’m not writing all this as a neighborhood scold just to make you feel rotten. I’m writing as a father to you, my children. I love you and want you to grow up well, not spoiled. There are a lot of people around who can’t wait to tell you what you’ve done wrong, but there aren’t many fathers willing to take the time and effort to help you grow up. It was as Jesus helped me proclaim God’s Message to you that I became your father. I’m not, you know, asking you to do anything I’m not already doing myself. This is why I sent Timothy to you earlier. He is also my dear son, and true to the Master. He will refresh your memory on the instructions I regularly give all the churches on the way of Christ. I know there are some among you who are so full of themselves they never listen to anyone, let alone me. They don’t think I’ll ever show up in person. But I’ll be there sooner than you think, God willing, and then we’ll see if they’re full of anything but hot air. God’s Way is not a matter of mere talk; it’s an empowered life. So how should I prepare to come to you? As a severe disciplinarian who makes you toe the mark? Or as a good friend and counselor who wants to share heart-to-heart with you? You decide. TMSG

The Measure of the Man

Note: The answers to the following questions are a good measure of the man.

“Sonship is our destiny and our inheritance is wrapped up in discovery” blh

1). What is Holy Spirit saying to you today?

2). If you were free and at liberty to live your life any way you wanted, how would you choose to live the life you’ve been given?

3). Will the witness of your life be worth the blood that was shed on that day?

4). At the end of the day, when you draw your last breath, who will be standing by to take up the torch in your stead?

Note: If we are not able to clearly answer the first two questions, the answers to the last two questions will be unclear. And that should serve to help us determine where we are in the process of spiritual growth and development or the making of the man.

Note: The answers to these questions will also help us to better determine the level of care and degree of oversight that is needed to help others lay hold of their destiny and come into their inheritance as sons.  

“It is the responsibility of every son, in every generation, to catch and embrace the heart and Spirit of the Father in their lifetime”

The Making of A Man

“It is the responsibility of every son, in every generation, to catch and embrace the heart and Spirit of the Father in their lifetime”

  •  There are six stages of growth and development

 1. Brephos – an unborn or new born 

  1. Nephos- an infant, little child 
  1. Paidon- a young half grown child 
  1. Teknon- a adolescent, young person

5. Huios- a young adult, mature son

6.  Pater- a father

Galatians 3:28-29 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.

SON – hyios (huios) – properly, a son (by birth or adoption); (figuratively) anyone sharing the same nature as their Father. For the believer, becoming a son of GOD begins with being reborn (adopted) by the Heavenly Father – through Christ (the work of the eternal Son). In the N.T. hyios (“son”) equally refers to female believers.

 Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

 “The cycle of discipleship is not complete until the discipled becomes the discipler”

 Note: The pat-ayr’ [pater] is no more or less a son than a brephos, but an unborn baby is still being formed in his mother’s womb. If the matrix in which he is being formed is the family and local work, then it needs to be safe and secure place for him to grow and develop. Even a brephos can distinguish the sound of the voice of his mom and dad when they enter the room. It has been proven that he responds to the sound of his parent’s voice even in the earliest stages of life. That being said, even though he responds to the sound of their voices, he does not fully comprehend what they are saying. It is only when he is kicking to get out of the matrix of the womb, that he will take his first independent breath of life. He will need both his mother, father and family to help him learn, grow and become all that he can be. Learning to hear and obey the voice of the Father should be a big part of his training and upbringing. Praying and studying the bible does not teach us to hear. Learning and responding to the heart of the Father in His SONS is how we grow in the grace and knowledge of the truth.

 “Sonship is our destiny and our inheritance is wrapped up in discovery”

The Covenant of Sonship

I am a part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit Power. The dye has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I am a disciple of His. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense and my future is secure.

I am finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living, and dwarfed goals. I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded.

I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power. My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is Kingdom, my road is narrow, my way rough, my companions few, my Guide reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and preached up for the cause of Messiah. I am a disciple of Yahshua. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me, and when He comes for His own, He will not have problems recognizing me – – – my banner will be clear!

Behold I AM Doing a New Thing!

By Blake Higginbotham

Isaiah 43:19 Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Amplified Bible (AMP)

The other day on my way to the post office I passed by a local fellowship that had a portable sign in front of the building that read, ‘Behold I will do a new thing’ I remember passing and reading the sign a few days earlier; but something about the signage caused me to question validity of the advertisement. In one way I was sincerely hoping that the sign was a true reflection of what was going on inside of the building; but then it dawned on me that the statement it was making was nothing more than a futuristic projection. I have no problem with the statement or with the process by which we are all coming into a better understanding.

The truth be known, Yahweh is doing a new thing, and a remnant has been hearing this sound for a number of years. The problem as I see it is some are redefining what He is doing based on the best of what they knew in the former season and others are spinning off of the new thing based on their understanding of the latest book or teaching.

That said, I want to table my concerns and speak to a few things that I believe to be worthy of consideration.

Firstly, we need to be careful not to assume that the best of what we had in the former season of the Spirit (Latter Rain, Charismatic, Word of Faith, New Prophetic/Apostolic Reformation, Etc.) is the essence of what He is doing in this season of the Spirit.

Note: New thing does not mean a new twist on the same old way of doing things, and changing the language and philosophy will not change the outcome alone. Nor does it mean that He is only doing what He is doing in and through us. Too many times we think that the divine mandate by which we function and operate is somehow exclusive and therefore conclusive. It would do us all good to accept the fact that He is doing a new thing and while we have heard the promo, seen the advertisement and watched the trailer, we have yet to see the full-length premier of what He is doing.

Secondly, we need to be careful not to move out on another man’s revelation until we first come to a better understanding concerning the wisdom of application for ourselves. There is nothing wrong with praying about or waiting for the release of Holy Spirit before proceeding.

In this day and hour we need to try the spirit of a thing before we whole-heartedly embrace what others are saying about it.

Thirdly, we should not be too quick to fully embrace what others are saying about this season until it begins to bear witness with what Holy Spirit has been speaking to us for some time. We are still in the process of remembering who we were in creation before formation, and the heart and soul of man cannot be trusted without the forensic interrogation of the Spirit.

Lastly, I have asked a number of people what Holy Spirit is saying to them in this hour and to my surprise their response has been somewhat disconcerting. To be honest with you the majority of the people who were asked this question looked at me like they had been hit up-side the head with a dead fish, or they became angry and defensive. The reason that they became angry and defensive is because they have not been hearing anything for a while now, and the silence is intimidating. However, the proper response to silence not angst and frustration, and it is no indication that He is not speaking to others.  With that, I have been puzzled by their reaction until this past week when Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, “begin to ask them, what is the Father requiring of you?”

What if I told you that His silence may represent His mercy and grace to you in this season?

What if I told you that your dullness of hearing may be a reflection of the degree to which you have hardened your heart toward the change that He is bringing in this season?

What if I told you that His silence may be nothing more than a test to see if you will respond in a mature way by asking some hard and difficult questions?

“We must begin to ask the right questions in order to arrive at the correct conclusions” blh

What is the Father requiring of you?

Answer: Everything and all of you!

Note: What that means to you may not be what it means to me; but until we are willing to ask the Father what He is requiring of us, we will not be able to move from where we are into the new season.

What you need to know is it will not be easy to leave behind anything in order to pursue His greater Kingdom purpose, and to fully trust Him with everything and all of you will require degrees of dying and levels death and hell. Therefore, start where you are right now. Do not attempt to live vicariously by someone else’s faith or understanding. Do not try to carry the cares of others in an attempt to avoid the reality of your own. Dying doesn’t come easy; but it must come before you will truly experience resurrection life and power.

Matthew 19:16-22  Now behold, one came and said to Him, “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?” 17 So He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, Yahweh. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.” 18 He said to Him, “Which ones?” Yahshua said, “‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ 19 ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”20 The young man said to Him, “All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?”21 Yahshua said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.

What is the Father requiring of you?

Isaiah 48:6-7 You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfillment. And will you not bear witness to it? I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve] which you have not known. 7They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, Behold, I knew them! Amplified Bible (AMP)

Numbers 16:30 – But if Yahweh creates a new thing, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them up with all that belongs to them, and they go down alive into the pit, then you will understand that these men have rejected the Lord.”

Caution: I would be remiss if I did not remind all of us that failure to continue and hear and obey His voice could result in early termination and that would represent failure to fulfill His practical will and purpose for our lives. It grieves me to say that some have already died pre-maturely and gone on to their reward in the past few years. Some of them finished strong and some of them fell on their own sword in battle.

Question: How long will we mourn for Saul?

1 Samuel 16:1 Now Yahweh said to Samuel, “How long will you mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go; I am sending you to Jesse the Bethlehemite. For I have provided Myself a king among his sons.”

(To Be Continued)


The Manifestation of the SON of MAN

2012 – Order & Government Restored

Isaiah 48:6-7 You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfillment. And will you not bear witness to it? I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve] which you have not known. 7They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, Behold, I knew them!

The Amplified Bible

For many years I have been seeing glimpses of glory from a heavenly perspective; but they were little more than the fleeting images of faded memories that could not be expressed in a way that would produce life. I am happy to report to you that something is changing as we approach the end of 2011. Things have been intensifying and accelerating for the past several years and I expect that I am not the first or the last to come to a better understanding of His person and work. I have now lived long enough to begin to see the fulfillment of what I have been declaring and releasing for decades. It is hard for me to fathom the degree of frustration that most of the prophets of old must have experienced while waiting to see the fulfillment of the words they spoke and released in their lifetime. In my estimation the following passage of scripture is an example of a prophetic word that until now has not been fully understood. To be honest with you, I have preached and declared this scripture over the years; but was never convinced that I comprehended or grasped the scope and magnitude of what the old prophet was seeing.

Isaiah 2:1-2 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. 2Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of Yahweh’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it.

Note: What if this passage of scripture was speaking about the end of that era, while pointing to the epoch event that was going to take place in the near future? Yahshua came preaching ‘The Kingdom of Yahweh is here’ and ever since He made that announcement, things have been different. Ever since the Day of Pentecost, all nations have been flowing into His house. In every living generation there has been a covenant seed.

For a number of months I have been openly declaring that the Kingdom is come and that it has always been about the Spirit and the Kingdom. From creation until NOW the dominion of His Kingdom has been established in planet earth and it was never a part of His original intent for it to fall into the hands of dissident and hostile forces. It is past time for this present darkness and oppression to end. We must be changed in the moment as we are divinely empowered to fully execute His judgment in planet earth. This is the purpose for which we were born and dominion is our birthright and manifest destiny. This is our finest hour and it is my hope that the order and government of Yahweh will be fully restored in our lifetime.

I have also been saying that the end is the same as the beginning. In other words, we have now come full circle as it pertains to the His greater Kingdom purpose.

If you can hear it, this is a second chapter of Acts moment in the history of the Ekklesia and we have an awesome opportunity to come about, and make things right today. We still have time to turn this great ship of Zion back on course, and find our true North. This can only be accomplished by trained and skilled mariners who are alert and awake in the moment. It is my sincere prayer that we will be further enlightened and empowered to navigate through the turbulent waters of our time, and thereby arrive safely back at port. Until then, He continues to be the anchor and mooring of our souls, and He will forever be the sovereign of our lives. Far too much time has been spent adrift, being tossed to and fro by the winds of doctrine, the trickery of man, and the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting. Unless we make a concerted effort to steer back on course right now, I am not sure that we will ever see it happen in our lifetimes. I hear a call from the helm “All hands on deck,” “batten down the hatches,” “man your battle stations,” “prepare for the conflict of the Ages”.

Men and brethren, I want you to know that I operate from a finished work mentally and I am persuaded that Satan was and is defeated 2000 year ago. I also believe that He was stripped of his rank, power and authority at that time, and therefore no longer has a right to rule. However, I have awakened to the grim reality that our homeland is being pillaged and freedoms eroded. The enemy of our soul is running rampant through the streets of our lives, as he plunders…rapes and kills his way back into power. It grieves me to know of several marriages and families who are under attack right now, and are presently teetering on the brink of destruction. I am also aware of a number of our brothers and sisters who are sick and dying of debilitating disease, and who may not survive another year without divine intervention. Brethren, need I say that this ought not to be so? What has happen to us that we continue to abdicate our responsibility as sons, and why have we all but given up our right to rule this world as kings and priest?

What if I told you that Yahweh and Yahshua have done all they are going to do concerning our current dilemma and that they are requiring a more mature response on our part to what is going on right now. The reason that we are presently powerless to effect any lasting change in this culture is because of rebellion, disobedience and ignorance. We must repent, change and align ourselves with His greater Kingdom purpose. His order and government must be restored in our lives before we will ever have the power and authority necessary to rule and reign in life by Messiah Yahshua. We are not waiting for Him to return because he has already come again in and through the person and work of Holy Spirit. He is waiting on us to grow up and become all we were predestined and fore-ordained to be. His personal work is finished on earth; but we are only now just beginning to come back into the person and work of Yahshua.

We are like the rib that was taken out of Adam in order to make his bride. We came forth out of His (the Last Man ADAM) side, the closest thing to His heart, and when they pierced His side on that dark day, the blood and water that flowed out of him is still empowering  and keeping us today. We are presently coming back into Him, and are becoming the ‘One New Man.’ Once we have been put back in place and completely assimilated back into Him, we will no longer see in part, because we will know as we are known.

We are presently remembering who we were in creation before formation. In order to see and hear what I am saying; you must understand and fully embrace this reality. The day of independent ‘maverick ministries incorporated’ is over. This is a time when individual expressions are beginning to come back into Him, where they will find fulfillment in the corporate expression of the Messiah. We are the individual expressions who are presently coming back into Him. It is His ministry, His house and His work. Never again will we be able to function and operate separately while living under the same roof. Never again will He allow us to be divorced from Him and one another in the ongoing work, and we are going to get over the need for validation and recognition. We are sons of the same Father, and now we will become brothers of the same family. Family requires a different level of love and commitment to work together and as we give ourselves totally and completely to Him, the SON of MAN will stand up and rise above the heavens. The mountain of Yahweh’s house has been established over the top of all other mountains and all nations are flowing into it…

I see Yahshua standing at that right hand of the Father saying, this is My beloved son in whom I am well please. Hear you him!

1 Corinthians 15:20-28 But now Messiah is risen from the dead, and has become the first-fruits of those who have fallen asleep.21For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.
22For as in Adam all die, even so in Messiah all shall be made alive.23But each one in his own order: Messiah the firstfruits, afterward those who are Messiah’s at His coming. 24Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to Yahweh the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.25For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.26The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.27For “He has put all things under His feet.” But when He says “all things are put under Him,it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted.28Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.
