God Has A Strategy; The Lines Have Been Drawn
I came back to a city that I once lived in, a city that at one time had a strategic calling upon her for Western Canada. But now as I walk through the remaining residue of spiritual warfare; this city looks far from the glory that she once walked in. The very synergy and glory of God that once resided has been seriously weakened, and the big culprit seems to have that leviathan smell to it. Obviously this city is trying to get back on track, but she's lost some serious ground!
What started out years ago as a good work under heaven, ended up sideways as the power of leviathan stripped this city down with a counterfiet by getting many to start glorifying in themselves, Having stolen the glory, they then boasted on being the meat and the favoured ones in a city they were now calling as their caldron. It was at that moment, when staking their claim, that I saw the whole glory train head for the cliff. It was another Ezekiel Chapter 11 scenario! Once again the Lord had no choice but to send out his sword.
Ezekiel Chapter 11
And the Lord said, “Son of man, these are the men who say, ‘this city is the caldron, and we are the meat.’ “
Therefore says the Lord, “I will take them out and give them over to the hands of foreigners, and they shall fall by the sword. And they shall know that I am the Lord. This city shall not be their pot, and they shall not be the meat inside it. I will gather the peoples whom they have scattered, and I will give them land, I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them and give them a heart of flesh so that they may walk in my statutes and keep my judgments. They shall be my people, and I will be their God.”
So for those who have entered 2019 with the right Kingdom mindset, well they are about to see a line drawn in the sand once again! Two of them to be exact! For God has, and always will be in the rescue business. Once again he is about to pull a gathering out from the crowd!
As that whole religious assault is being exposed, the ekklesia government of God plans to land some serious boots to the ground as it carves up the religious ground. It is this forward thrust that will cause that religious sea to part once again. For our God is not only going to deal with those religious strongholds, but He will also gather what has been scattered as he begins to drive his mandate through. These illuminated ones are the same glorified ones that are now walking around with their programs as they attempt to revive the whole show once again. It may look like the real deal, but it's far from it!
For the Kingdom of God, it really comes down to the old model vs the upgraded model. Heaven has strategically earmarked certain cities as places of refuge. Gods original intent for this city was always to stake it as a major eagles nest, but now this revived eagles nest will have a different feel to it, and a different look to it, as it manifests more into an ekklesia model. It's not that the old model was completely wrong, it was strategic in many ways, but learning from those key lessons will help us move forward with the upgraded model that heaven has ordained for us.
If the adversarys strategies were good enough to bring it all down the first time, then this duo will use the success of that strategy the second time, that is why it is important for us to learn from our past. Which is why I am writing you! Lest we forget!
What was once ordained as a mainstream movement will now be a hidden work as this grassroots movement, forged by the fires of the Holy Spirit, strategically moves ahead with heavens mandate. This past leviathan distortion has created some of the biggest religious square dances ever. Leaving a destructive trail with a spiritual body count that is still being stacked to this day. That sidewinding spirit had the ability to twist things around, and it has future plans to twist once again, for the slime of that spirit still lurks in our midst. Now add the twisting of words with the schmoozing that comes from the enticements of Jezebel, and you have an ugly demonic package that is very deceptive and convincing on many levels. So much so that those who have been blindsided by her, have found themselves operating under a false identity that has derailed them from any true identity. An identity that had destiny attached to it!
This manifested duo, comes with its masks of piety, false humility . . . all oiled up with a false prophetic. It speaks with some level of truth, enough truth to set the hook and captivate all its desires, manipulating the air all around. It is this distortion of truth that gives that ugly religious serpent its power while those under its influence proclaims to be the meat, and the favored ones of a caldron that was never theirs. The weapon behind this powerful creature is the tongue, as it continually counters the rhema of God with the false prophetic.
This duo has drummed up many of the religious square dances that we've found ourselves going through, throwing enough counterfeit conviction in those dances to convince the gathering that it was all orchestrated by heaven. When in fact it had everything to do with control, position, manipulation, plus that ugly thing called self-preservation. Sliding itself in as one of the key figures, with the attempts of stealing as much spiritual territory as possible. It presents itself as the wisdom of God, thereby elevating itself as a main player. Accountability is not even on the list and when it all goes south, like it did in the past, it will ultimately sacrifice someone to preserve its image.
For those who have survived the many square dances, and those coming out of the wilderness, well they realize that the lines drawn comes with two fronts. The one line is against that counterfeit spirit who plans of rise up once again, the other line is for what Paul lays out in the book of Philippians Chapter 2. These lines are totally different, for two totally different reasons. And rest assured, the adversary will raise its ugly head once again to try and mix the two as one as it tries to bring confusion back into the camp.
First line drawn is to expose and separate that counterfeit spirit from the gathering. The second line is a Holy Spirit release for another rescue mission to gather what was scattered. A gathering will now break through the walls and tap into all that is before them, steering them into that much needed teamwork, allowing them to grow in true character while entering into all that has been prophesied. To walk in one accord leaving behind all that is selfish and full of ambition, to truly love one another and walk in a humility that we have rarely seen. A humility and a willingness to really serve one another, to esteem one another where jealousy is truly carved out of the camp!
The goal for the Holy Spirit is to bring the body of Christ into a true ekklesia movement; living and moving in a life as described by the apostle Paul in Philippians 2.
" If there is any fellowship that we share in the Spirit, any comfort of love, any great depth of affection and compassion, then 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 for your own interests, but also search out for the interests of others."
This whole article really describes a type of ekklesia in the making. For if we are truly entering into something new . . . then it really is time to let the process have its way in us. This processing of the gathering has been on the radar for the past few years, but for most of us, it’s a whole new experience. It really is time to step out from the isolation and step into the season at hand. If you are part of that gathering that God has forged thru his fires, then you need to start gathering with those that are like-minded. For we have entered the season of the gathering! God is gathering what has been scattered! So for those that have found themselves going through some type of wilderness experience, now is the time to allow the Spirit of God to direct your footsteps. Now is the time to work as a team, to walk in one accord! Once we embrace this reality, we will not be the same.
Its only when we gather in faith, trusting that God is truly bringing us together (while committed to unity) that we will begin to see the intensity of what God really has planned for this gathering and for this season. It truly has the glory of God all over it for it is in this very place of unity where the commanded blessing is released. The breath of God will come and he plans to raise up an amazing group of people into an amazing journey!
" Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the Lord commanded the blessing—Life forevermore."
