Lion of Judah Season
Lion of Judah & Special Forces are Key in these Latter Days of Ekklesia
Back in the day, it was a community of love, it was a gathering of people who were on the move. Expanding the borders of a Kingdom with a revelation of how it was always meant to be. Jesus came to set everything in motion; a reality that was established in Heaven, — now needs to be part of our present day life. Love being the biggest motivator. We need to start thinking outside the box that was never meant to be and walk away from all the false narratives. Jesus came with a priesthood that came out of the Tribe of Judah, — a movement, a priesthood and a kingship that went beyond the Levitical walls and the customary hardware. 2000 years later we have institutionalized ourselves back into a priesthood where we have filled ourselves with a busyness that we should of walked away from a long time ago.
Entrenched with theatrics and entertainment we have once again slapped up the walls. Instead of Teamwork where the Kingdom of Heaven moves forward, we have embraced a religious system whos success ratio is nothing close to what it should be. The collective distractions and the surrounding noise does not want us to see past the smoke and mirrors. Loving the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength has been pushed down the line for many of us. We need to realign ourselves, get out of the funk, and start walking in our true identity, not only individually, but in a team environment as to our Heavenly Fathers original design.
It really is about Teamwork, about being one, as defined by Jesus and His disciples. Loving one another, serving one another, listening to one another while honoring one another. With 2000 years of global distractions, it has fragmented us to where we lost the abillity to have unity. In our relational disconnect we've created systems of unity that are all conditional, creating interrelationships instead of actual relationships, along with being interconnected instead of being one as Father Son and Holy Spirit are one. The art of being one has taken a huge shift.
We have failed so bad in our relationships, and based on how we are spiralling, smaller groups is where we need to be going. It's in these conditions where we are forced to learn the essentials of moving forward as defined in the Four Gospels, — recreating that much needed Book of Acts environment where we truly become one. The Kingdom of Heaven plans to partner up with that model once again. This model is a vital part for the season that we have just entered into. It’s all about releasing groups, releasing Ekklesia. It's all about Teamwork. Jesus empowered that model, Holy Spirit plans to engage with that very same model today if our hearts are willing to line it up. Plus the Spirit of Prophecy and Prophetic Ministry will play a vital role in making sure the Team gets to where it needs to be going.
Jesus Releases Powerful Gatherings
Ekklesia: to the Greeks it meant “Assemble”, to the Hebrews it meant “Gathering”, but to Jesus, based on His example, He meant it to be “A Gathering on the Move”. ( Thy Kingdom on the move, here on earth, as it is in Heaven.) Jesus exemplified and released, — He did not build four walls and play the big bossman, nor did He parade Himself as the Lead dog. What He modeled was being the biggest servant of all. He modeled, He equipped, and then He released.
Based on what Jesus released while travelling from place to place, and with all that was testified, along with the signs and wonders that followed, Jesus demonstrated and released Teamwork, He modeled a oneness in small groups, and in small gatherings. He modeled a movement, a Kingdom government, with Kingdom authority where everybody played their part in setting the captives free. In other words, Jesus came to expand His Father’s House, having full authority, backed by the angelic, fuelled by the Holy Spirit, and with a ton of prophetic intel. All of that has been transitioned over to us! Holy Spirit has fueled it, — we now need to walk in it! As the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit moved as one, Jesus expects us, in our small gatherings, to be one with them. As the three are one so were we designed to flow as one. Why? Because we were made in their likeness!
All that Jesus modeled was not in static form but more of a fluid form. His Father was on the move and so was He. Jesus never built a single synagogue, — this kingdom, this spiritual house, this authority that He represented was totally mobile. And because it was designed to be far reaching, Jesus made it highly transferable. As Jesus was modeling and functioning in an apostolic model that covered all the bases, his disciples learned first-hand about the different aspects of ministry while traveling from place to place. The five different forms of ministry was being carved in them as the completed model in Jesus became their constant witness. The differtent ministries that Jesus walked in was theirs to embrace.
As the Good Shepherd, Jesus demonstrated the Pastoral. As one who is the Spirit of Prophecy, He demonstrated the Prophetic. As one who was healing and teaching, He demonstrated Power Evangelism. And when it came to the woman at the well, — Jesus demonstrated the true Apostolic model as the town made a complete turn around. Notice that every model that He exemplified was on the move. He was on the move and He sent teams out on the move. As one who is defined as 'The Lord of the Sabbath', — Sabbath always happened to be at a different location every time! We move and rest in Him!
According to the model that Jesus demonstrated, it always was about Kingdom Ministry. It is this very world within a world that Jesus demonstrated that we need to be walking in. If it is a lost language or a lost art as we perceive it to be, then we need to engage with it once again, for if we truly are about to enter into a whole new playing field, we need to let the process have its way in us so that we can move into the realm of ' Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven ' (Mathew 6:10).
The autocratic way needs to make room for Teamwork, for we need to start working as a unit, in one accord, interconnected, everyone contributing, as we go down the field together. It’s no different than a hockey team or a football team, or any other team that’s trying to work the grid. For any team that is pounding that grid, there are usually operating systems in place ( guidelines ) to help create movement so that the whole unit can enter into its destiny.
Biblical Meaning for a Group of Tigers: "Special Forces"
So for Us, What does Teamwork Look Like?
What is special about THIS Teamwork is that it will become a force to reckon with as righteousness has its absolute way. It's these ones who walk in their true identity where the glory and the manifest presence of God resides. Its a place where these ones leave the false and the counterfeit behind including false humility, false leadership, false identity, false realities and false narratives. Its where these ones realize that teamwork and accountability steers us out of the shadows and out of selfishness, and out of self grandisement.
Special forces is a small gathering where righteousness, healing and restoration is all over that group. Special forces is an operating system that has a way of realigning everything back to the way it was always meant to be. It is a functioning group that has been trained and equipped by the Holy Spirit to know exactly who they are in the Lord without any deviation. It is these ones who have prepared themselves for a time such as this. It is these ones who have gone through the wilderness training and have not hardened their hearts. It is these ones who have trained themselves to hear the voice of the Lord who now engage in the inner courts of the Lord where His manifest presence dwell.
Special forces, special gatherings, is where they have become one as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one. Special forces, special teamwork, that upper room environment, has the glory of God all over it and that is where we need to be heading.
Operating System: If the Kingdom of Heaven functions under a heavenly operating system, and the animal kingdom functions on its own operating system, then Ekklesia, in fulfillment of Jesus’ prayer, ' Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven ', must also have an operating system to keep it in balance as Holy Spirit, men, and angels function together.
Where Do We Start?
Make my joy complete by being of the same mind, having the same love, being of one accord, and of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition, strife, or vain deceit, but with an attitude of humility being neither arrogant nor self-righteous, regard others as more important than yourselves. Do not only search out only your interests, but search out the interest of others also.
1 Corinthians 14:26
Let’s summarize. When you meet, one will sing, another will teach, another will share of some special revelation that God has given, one will speak in tongues, and another will interpret what is said. But everything that is done is designed to strengthen all of you.
Not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts and ministries differing . . . according to the grace that has been given to us, let us all use them.
1 Corinthians 12:7-11
A spiritual gift is given to each of us so that we can help one another. To one person the Spirit gives the ability for wise council; to another the same Spirit gives special knowledge. To another great faith, and to someone else the gift of healing. He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and another the ability to prophesy. He gives someone else the ability to discern a message from the Spirit of God, another person is given the ability to speak in unknown language, while another is given the ability to interpret what is being said.
