“And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams;”
In organisations the decisions made in the constitutions and authority of man give Satan rights.
The perfect organisation on earth is that of the unwrinkled bride and under the Jurisdiction of heaven and the kingdom.
Monumental change is possible when the source of the decision comes from the governance and kingdom of Christ and is from the revelation of the Holy Spirit and not from man’s rulership and understanding.
The influence this would make in all individuals, systems and Nations would be bodies uniting under a single headship not two or more.
The head of Christ and His body. The church has always been intended to demonstrate righteousness, power and authority and be the role model and standard.
Prophets will be those who hear and deliver the word of God. His intentions. Led by the Holy Spirit’s voice. They will not be living on the back of others as mere echoes.
Nor will they be those who pull what they hear into their own understanding and build on their own logic but instead be obedient to what they hear the Spirit of God saying.
Prophesy is not an add on that no one knows what to do with. It requires to be the central voice that is the mechanism and source.
Then decisions will be made from the realm of the Spirit and not the flesh or the world.
It requires a full dependency on God. It requires a total humility and obedience. It will not be by strength and power but by God’s Spirit.
“ Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.”
God sometimes purposefully allows us to feel frail, weak, exhausted and frustrated.
It is a gift if it brings us to our knees and the place of need and total dependency on Him instead of ourselves.
It brings us back to His supremacy and strength. To accept having the Holy Spirit to process us.
We have lost the art of totally belonging to Him.
His intervention, delays and detours that re-establish that are essential.
He breaks us to redirect our path and our priorities.
“as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”
It is His desire for us to fix our eyes upon the unseen. To pray and to be in the Spirit.
“praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,”
In that place we have conviction of sin, righteousness and truth and it will lead us into final reformation. Reformation is only required when what has preceded has failed.
Past seasons are old wine skins that have been corrupted by man’s choices to govern and control that have been plagued and bound with a spirit of religion.
We can shake free of all that tethered us and again make space for greater levels of glory.
Arise from what may have seemed failure to expand into His limitless place of victory.
To carry God’s throne to operate in His power and authority separated from what may have seemed success but in fact fell short and therefore failed.
We are provoked to liberate the heart and mind of Christ. He will shake until there is nothing left to shake and the world mindset is out.
The kingdom to be populated by those saved from the world. He promises the harvest is great.
“Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.”
The illustration shows that the body of the church cannot have two heads. Only that of the true Christ, not the prince of the world, will emanate Light and push back the darkness.
Five Scriptures that come to mind:

“Then he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.” Zechariah 4:6 ESV
“as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18 ESV
“praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,”. Ephesians 6:18 ESV
“Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest. Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together.”John 4:35-36 ESV
