Remnant Nation Radio w/NeWinePouring.com is a prophetic (and often poetic) view of the sojourning bride of CHRIST, in our world today. Joining the voice of the Spirit and the Bride in their end-time ministry that calls for Christ’s return.
NeWine Pouring is a dream journal website where you can access teaching articles, and prophetic words produced out of a call to intercede for America. In 2004 the Lord gave Deana and her and husband David direction to move to the Eastern Seaboard of the United States to pray and teach prayer for America.
Over a span of 37 years Deana has ministered in outreaches, prisons, jails, churches, and women’s meetings. After several years in property, business, and people, management, the Lord called her aside into a life of full time prayer and writing in 2007.
NeWinePouring’s articles have been viewed by individuals from 128 different countries, where various websites have posted prophetic words and teachings generated from NeWinePouring.com. The recorded visits of these articles and podcasts, collectively, have far surpassed 500,000 readers. iheart Radio enabled NeWine Pouring to acquire Station Status with Spreaker three years ago, in a recent endeavor in podcasting. We are celebrating 10,000 plays with 8 thousand due to Remnant. The NeWinePouring podcast called Remnant Nation Radio is gaining new listeners every day, while we are working on ideas for studio webcasts, as well.
Deana: “My husband and I, of 35 years, reside near the foothills that ascend towards the Blue Ridge Mountains, in Western North Carolina. We have 3 children and 6 grand children. My husband and I accepted a mandate regarding prayer for America, that began with our oldest son moving to the east coast, after attending a youth rally for Christ in Washington, DC., in 2000- paving away for our whole family to answer such a life altering call. A few years later we would all be living near the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, in North Carolina, 2800 hundred miles from a land cut with deep canyons, rivers , and jagged peaked mountains, we called home. Idaho was where our people lived for five generations who traveled out west as pioneers.
Both my husband’s and my own family tree, have roots in North and South Carolina as far back as the Revolutionary War. The blood sweat and tears, that was exacted upon our family lines to live free in America, personalized our desire to see this nation turn to God.
Geographically, our hearts have been torn between East and West coast, fueling fervency in intercession as we crisscrossed this country over a dozen times now. Calling upon moves of God over each State as we traveled through. In 2011, I was allowed the privilege to join a minister friend of mine, traveling the region of the original 13 colonies on a prayer tour. Visiting 15 Capitals, and senate chambers for prayer and prophetic proclamation, ending at Washington DC., after moving near the Blue Ridge Mountains in Western NC., where we are responding to new prayer mandates, while teaching and preaching the word of God.
After all these years I believe I am now entering into the final phase of my ministry that explains the events of my conversion. In 1978, I received an open eye vision of the Lord handing to me a blazing torch out of heaven that lit up the night sky; I was 17 years old. Later, I would understand that experience to signify a commission of God to an end-times prophetic ministry. There after, I began to have visions and dreams of America’s final days before Christ’s return.
What color means in dreams.
The Ahab Jezebel modus operandi is a corporate malfeasance, that empowers works of the flesh with satanic influence under the guise of noble causes.
It is an operative that has reproduced itself countless times over, since King Ahab and Jezebel’s reign, recorded in the Bible, animated it in the earth. They together, as one flesh, committed crimes against their people and God; giving time, life, and resources, to their worthless idols. The Satanic power behind the scenes of this modus operandi have resisted the test of the ages, and the fade of time. It has manifested itself in political offices and church sanctuaries; to fulfill one purpose, and that is to secure resources for its demonic rule, to continue Satan’s rebellion against almighty God.
Webster’s on line: definition of modus operandi : the usual way of doing something; especially: the usual way that a particular criminal performs a crime.
You have built your bell towers at the head of every street, you have made your beauty an abomination, and have opened your feet to everyone who passed by, and multiplied your prostitution.
1 Kings 21:25 There was no one like Ahab who SOLD HIMSELF to do wickedness in the sight of the Lord, more so, Jezebel stirred him up.
Ahab Jezebel Modus Operandi
Of all the books, sermons, video tapes, and cd’s ever made about the Ahab Jezebel operative, very few have made an accurate and scriptural identification of the players behind what they call “a Jezebel spirit” in our world today. While spiritual wickednesses in high places have perfected themselves in their rules of engagement, many of those engagements are similar to what we see in the old testament, that can be used as a play book in identifying works of the enemy, against God’s people and their inheritance in Christ. In Jehovah’s kingdom the greater serves the lesser. In Ahab’s Kingdom the resources, and talents of the saints are there to serve the idol of selfish ambition. They are religious works that employ the resources of the Body of Christ, falling short of what should be the righteous acts of the saints.
What’s taught in regard to the Ahab Jezebel dynamic is that these two individuals are spirits. They are not. They are a demonized mode of operation, net working under satanic strongholds, to plunder the treasures of God’s Kingdom, tapping resources of the saints. As was done with Naboth’s vineyard.
The spirits involved are lying, seducing, perverse, spirits that have found a foothold in a work of the flesh called selfish ambition. Many pastors, heads of ministry, and other types of church authority, have engaged the saints in sins of idolatry, serving a man’s vision above God’s mandate. The greatest sign in identifying a church under the control of the Ahab Jezebel modus operandi is an absence of the prophet’s mantle of Elijah, among them. Which is a fore runner anointing clearing paths for Christ’s greater works that benefit generations to come.
This is contrary to Ahab’s works who lined his household up (and himself) for destruction. Prophetic ministry that doesn’t serve the Ahab Jezebel agenda is issued a death certificate of neglect at best, and is driven out of the assembly altogether at worst, by an active demonic network which is the Jezebel component in the Ahabic regime. Distinct and methodical teaching to dissuade the office of the prophet’s influence is dispatched, while rewarding “yes men” is actively engaged. The Ahabic regime has a name for God’s true prophet. That name is “Troubler”.
1 Kings 18:17-18
When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, “Is it you, you troubler of Israel?” And he answered, “I have not troubled Israel, but you have, and your father’s house, because you have abandoned the commandments of the Lord …
A tell tell sermon on prophets, come out of this dynamic, is always slanted to the negative. Never would that demonic hierarchy give them honor, or teach the people how to receive the office. Of course why would a rebellious leadership want the people to know how to receive a prophet? In their world it is kept hidden in the obscurity of ignorance, because of its corrective value, and reward to those who receive a prophet’s ministry. Mathew 10:41. A prophet’s ministry proceeds advancement in the Kingdom of God.
It is a wicked work that undermines the impact of the office of the prophet, set in the Church by God, and their ministry to the Body of Christ. Those houses void of their prophets may have dishonored them, and could very well have the dynamo duo working in their midst; seeing to it that only their compliant appointees exist. In fact, any anointing determined to obey God rather than man will be marked as a troubler under the jurisdiction of an Ahabic ambition.
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ ..
The Elijah anointing turns the hearts of the fathers towards the children and the hearts of the children towards their fathers. In this end times work before us- the mantle of the prophets make clear the paths of the Lord. As John came in the Spirit of Elijah, so once again is this mantle in the earth upon the Church, spoken of in Malachi. Preparing the way for Messiah’s second coming! Ahab had 70 sons that met a violent end; Ahab’s regard for his sons and daughters, did not secure their future, for his heart was not toward them. An Ahab Jezebel modus operandi works against the end times ministry of Elijah. Jezebel’s demonized sanctuary will not tolerate the Elijah mandate in their midst today. In Revelation Jesus warned another Jezebel type that He would kill her children with death. Is this not the curse written in Malachi? Let’s look.
Malachi Chapter 4:1-5
For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Rev. 2: 23 [Jezebel] And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searches the reins and hearts: and I will give to every one of you according to your works.
Ahab and Jezebel’s story is about two people who had a platform of power that they misused, while they gave free reign to their own sinful lust. Ahab’s sin was disobedience while sitting as King in a God ordained appointment. The same idolatry, and lust for power, he exhibited emerges from the hearts of men and women, who have given themselves over to their appetites, just like Ahab did. Sadly, the Church today is inundated with those who seek fame, fortune, and power. Deceiving and being deceived; believing there religious acts are righteous works. Yet, have nothing to show for the equipping of the saints.
Their congregants are subjects of an Ahab Jezebel net work, not an equipped army capable of going to war, at any given moment. They have been rendered weak, sickly, timid, and dependent; forfeiting their own inheritance for the sake of another man’s selfish ambition. Often, the saints under such a leadership find themselves submitting to undue controls, and unrecognized sacrifices.
Jezebel was named after, and born to serve Baal. Her father was a Baal worshiper. She was empowered by a spiritual hierarchy that stirred up Ahab to sin greatly against His God, while Ahab was leading in Jehovah’s Kingdom. Ahab sealed his fate by marrying Jezebel. Ahab was not a man after God’s own heart. He was a man after his own pursuits, empowered by the anointing (come from God) that put him there.
The scripture clearly points out to us that an anointing is not the mark of obedience.
Case in point King Saul, King Ahab, as well as King David, in certain events of his life. Anointed leadership can come into an agreement with a satanic alliance, as Ahab did with the enemies of God on earth, that enabled a principality in high places, and its rulerships of darkness, to be a strong hold in the land for Baal worship. This activated Jezebel to persecute Elijah And kill prophets. Jezebel and Ahab became one in works of the flesh. Both of them were deceived, by choice, and under the control of a satanic delusion, seduced by demonic powers, and spirits of perversity; committing whoredoms against God, in the Kingdom of the inheritance of the saints.
It is impossible to have a Jezebel operative in the church with out an Ahab in charge giving it place, or tolerating it. Often the two dynamics can operate in one man or woman who hold the reins in leadership. Remember, as husband and wife Ahab and Jezebel were one in flesh. This working is a work of the flesh so it is perfectly scriptural, that a man or woman leading, can have both operatives operating. The Ahab that wants, and the Jezebel that will wickedly manipulate in order to provide. Don’t imagine I am identifying husband and wives in ministry gone a stray, as an Ahab Jezebel team. But that could be a scenario. A husband or wife may or may not be complicit, as stated before the dynamic duo operative can work through one person, office, church or a denomination, for that matter, an entire political party. Like the nation of Israel itself was under the rule of Ahab and Jezebel.
This satanic hierarchy working the Ahab Jezebel modus operandi, has no legal authorization to act with out given power to do so! This power is secured when God’s appointed man or woman succumb to temptations, leading them to sin against God in disobedience, allowing positions of authority, and their lust for power, to corrupt them. Rather than serving God they start to use resources belonging to HIM for their own selfish pursuits, as religious as they seem. The body of Christ under their influence begins to suffer a subtle diversion of purpose believing their personal sacrifices and offerings are serving God! Rather, they are serving a regime influenced by evil spirits (Jezebelic network). The Ahab Jezebel dynamic is an operative under the category of whoredoms against God. These are works of the flesh as described in Galatians 5:19 and covers everything from selfish ambitions to idolatry, witchcraft, and adultery.
Simply, their position, and appointment, that has a platform and power; becomes their altar, and instruments, to practice idolatry.
Under the power of a spiritual wickedness in high places- lying spirits, perverse and seducing spirits, find a foot hold in established controls, and governments in the earth. This includes Christian organizations, and churches, in order to funnel resources out of the hands of good people, into the service and sacrifice of idols. For the church of America that would translate to serving the god of self. In her political arena it has been the same.
One might think that such a work would be extraordinarily evident. Rather, it is profoundly ordinary and common among many of our Churches today.
The Old Testament gives us a prophetic parallel to how this work of darkness enters into our lives and sanctuaries. The Story of Ahab and Jezebel reveals to us how disobedience and a self involved leadership, becomes a floodgate for a demonic hierarchy, to enter into a position ordained by God.
Too many have attempted to teach about the inner workings of this dynamic duo, while under their spell, getting it all wrong; leaving the true portion of accountability, out of the hands of leadership, and into a chaotic, fear mongering witch hunt, going every direction imaginable, away from the true source of responsibility. With out an Ahab there would be no Jezebel.
Ahab served the god of self and Jezebel helped him do it, zealously. Deeper than that they emboldened wickedness to reside over Israel in their whoredoms against God, using resources of their own subjects.
One might imagine that such an operation would be an out-of-reach, off-the-beaten-path religious group, under the control of a moody dark character. This is not true, the flesh woman Jezebel was gifted in the art of cosmetics and sorcery, to seduce. 2 Kings 9. How much more charismatic would the darkness that empowered her pretend to be, that is still in operation today, having centuries to perfect itself in manipulating human nature?
Churches under the control of this mode of operation, are often main stream, or influential in their community, for that very reason. The art of make up. Jesus had a very strong word of warning for those who tolerated Jezebel.
Ending Ahab’s Reign Begins With Repentance
Remember, one must have the beam of blindness removed from their eye before they can see to remove specks out of the eyes of others! To many good people have been left bloodied with facial scars (harming good reputations) because a slave of the Ahab Jezebel modus operandi, was attempting to correct in others, what needed corrected in themselves.
The evidence that the Ahabic Jezebel operation resides over any given territory, is that the office of the prophets of God is operating in seclusion in the area. The cave prophets! The 7 thousand that have not bowed their knee to Baal happens just before the double portion anointing is released in the area, where Ahab is dethroned, and Jezebel is cast down. So be encouraged, God won this battle, many times before, and He will win it all over again. There is no new thing under the sun!
We just need to know what in the world is going on, so we can resist the devil, and recognize that Jezebel’s spiritual play ground is in the realm of an Ahabic sanctuary.
It begins with leadership.
This spiritual wickedness, seducing a disobedient, jealous, competitive, and covetous people does not care if it is seated at the head of the table. As long as it is bedded down with the one who will give it free reign to keep out the holy prophets of God. They just need to be in the same boat of like mindedness. For they both love self, as Ahab and Jezebel did. Ahab (in this prophetic parallel) represents a natural God given position sold out to the service and worship of an idol called selfish ambition, aided and abetted by a satanic hierarchy that will stir him up to create even more abominations, in the pursuit of his “me” agenda. This is accomplished through Jezebel. A network of demonic players contributing to a wicked work committing whoredoms against God, in high places. Using the power of manipulation, and control.
While Ahab is a flesh and bone operative over one or many, the Jezebel counter part doesn’t have to be. For this work is the satanic side of this duo blinded by thier own deception, the spiritual side, the shadow government, if you will. Seducing, manipulating, and stirring up Ahab who did great wickedness against God, as described.
Ahab hated correction by prophets that told him the truth, and though he feared God in that regard, Ahab would not take authority among the people he was assigned to lead, to protect and accommodate the prophets of God. Rather, Ahab handed them over to Jezebel, raising up her own councilmen and prophets. While this demonic work murdered and persecuted true prophets in the land. In our churches today you can say the presbytery of an Ahab Jezebel operative are those who tolerate Jezebel, and allow her prophecies and teachings to secure an agenda that is in disobedience to God. For it is not for His glory they serve, but for the glory of their god; self. Though the workings of the Jezebel counter part of an Ahabic leadership is invisible and demonic, that network of various spirits dominate the compliant and oppress the non compliant. Male or female.
This is why many meeting places of the saints become known as the house of revolving doors.
This wickedness punishes men and women under the authority of an Ahab, that refuse to yield their spiritual inheritances, or giftings, to his vision or cause; and activates the satanic network of a Jezebel operative into action, oppressing those who have gifts and anointings. This type of activity is portrayed in 1 Kings 22:4 when Ahab wanted Naboth’s vineyard to turn it into a vegetable garden. Meaning years of husbandry was ignored that made Naboth’s vineyard a productive producer of new wine, for Ahab to have a vegetable garden. This is a picture of the misuse and abuse of gifts and callings of God, where good men and women with great spiritual wealth, and worth, suffer spiritual violence over their inheritance in Christ, where a flood gate of interest and recruitment is formulated towards a gifted or resourceful saint, in order to procure their talent, time, and resource.
Gal 4:16 Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth? Those people are zealous to win you over, but for no good. What they want is to alienate you from us, so that you may have zeal for them …
Because these gifted saints of God are in close proximity to the duo’s dynamic, their field of ministry is desired, as was Naboth’s, for works born of the flesh, but not after the Spirit. In order to incorporate it into a plan drawn up of a flesh conjured vision. It was the coverage close to where Ahab resided that made Naboth a target. The name Naboth means sprout to fruit, productivity, fruitful. Other commentaries say to sprout forth an utterance, a word or prophecy. How poetic is that?! A gift of prophecy or teachers anointing in the jurisdiction of the (networking) of these two bad actors, are coveted for not what they are to produce for Christ, but for reassignment, that will draw resources to their operation of an idol worshiping regime, of self exaltation and advancement. As was Naboth’s vineyard tragically used for.
This is why these gifts and anointings find themselves quenched, or rewarded for doing everything else but the very thing God has given them to do.
So, in order to have Naboth’s vineyard Jezebel hatched a vile and demonically induced scheme. Remember, this operative that empowered Jezebel is an invisible force of seduction, and perversion, that uses legal authority to accomplish its illegal operation, to this day. Ahab’s roll is the self absorbed bishop, pastor, head minister, or head of state; that facilitates it. Look what it did to secure Naboth’s inheritance:
Elders, nobles, and respected leaders, under the influence of the Ahab Jezebel operative, are stirred up against a devout man, and his sacred inheritance. All of them join to accuse Naboth and remove him from his place in the land of Israel. Look at how this man whose name means FRUIT or to produce – had his field of ministry stolen from him! Jesus said, “That you might bring forth fruit and that fruit remain …”
1Kings 21:7-10 Then Jezebel his wife said to him, “You now exercise authority over Israel! Arise, eat food, and let your heart be cheerful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.” And she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Naboth. She wrote in the letters, saying. Proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth with high honor among the people; and seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him, saying, “You have blasphemed God and the king.” Then take him out, and stone him, that he may die.
The theft of destiny often begins with a promotion or flattery in these politically charged gathering places we call church in America. What is thought as acceptance turns into a set up.
By all means they will do or say what they can, in order not to lose assets. It ends with a ruined reputation, when Naboth types resist serving man’s agenda. The accusations begin! Notice how this net work of demonic activity stirs up others to war against the saints and the prophets of God? The seducing spirits working the Jezebel operation, flatters, and offers positions of power, as well as accuses and destroys ministries around it, that do not cooperate with an Ahabic agenda. With the prophets of God, held at bay, this wickedness serves a disobedient, compromising leadership, that is more interested in expanding its own ministry, than it is to be a source of strength for the gifts and inheritances of the saints, in its territory.
Rather, after destroying Naboth, beginning with his reputation and Godly standing, his field of ministry was confiscated for the use of the Ahab Jezebel operation.
I’m sure fresh wine for the courts would have been part of that package before the vegetable garden would be plowed. For a court teeming with what seems to be ecstatic activity; but that activity comes at the expense of the gifts, offerings, inheritances, and souls of men, serving an ordained position of God, gone horribly wrong. Anyone willingly tithing or giving their offerings to this kind of operation, including time and life, are serving a regime that seeks to repurpose Godly assignments of men and women called to ministry, ruining reputations, that will not serve them, that are in their area. While there are lesser degrees of satanic activity suffered by the saints, this is that in its fullness.
They desire to promote and market only themselves. No one else exists in the world of this dynamic duo. Self serving flesh stirred up by spiritual darkness.
The Christian franchise given over to the Ahab Jezebel M.O. is sinning against God, the actors involved are working in a tried and proven relationship to commit their whoredoms. Ahab, an ordained leader appointed by God, has turned to other god’s and married himself to a servant of Baal. This marriage can be with any thing or anyone that will accommodate his own agenda. King Ahab was a King that went to war but would rather indulge himself with the company of anyone. He was non confrontational towards the enemy, persuasive and accommodating to his peers, yet he was brazenly disobedient to God and rude to those attempting to correct him. Ahab preferred social engagement rather than conflict. He liked good news and snubbed bad news bearers, he also punished them. Even when they were sent to tell him the truth for his own good.
He was not a weak man but his disobedience made him weak, and susceptible to judgment.
He seemed to not be use to the word no, and allowed his counter part to carry out punishments on his behalf. This appears like a sign of weakness, yet in battle, after taking an arrow, he propped himself up in his chariot and faced war through out the day. So he does not go down easy at all. He was in a position God ordained, worthy of honor. He is the prototype of men and women today, called of God to serve. Who instead serve self, rather than Jehovah. In todays world it is a narcissistic agenda. It plagues the western church, and is spreading like a cancer to their disciples.
King Ahab’s greatest idol was himself. 1 Kings 21:25 There was no one like Ahab who SOLD HIMSELF to do wickedness in the sight of the Lord, more so, Jezebel (whom he was married to) STIRRED HIM UP. Chapter 26.
He behaved abominably in following idols. An idol is anything you set up above God. A man’s opinion can be an idol. His or her ministry can be an idol. Ambitions of grandeur can be an idol. Stubbornness is as the sin of idolatry. Heaping burdens on men and women around them that God would not have them carry, because of the traditions, and opinions of men, is a form of idolatry. This is prominent in many churches today, who serve their own personal ambitions rather than the flock of God. They are everywhere where one personality perpetually rides upon the backs of the saints of God, rather than being a part of that body, that carries the commission of Christ, to the nations.
They are first, their talent is first, their vision is first; all will serve the life, and accomplishments of this one who must always be first, with what they can bring to the table. If you tithe into them you are in, if you serve their agenda you are their prophets and servants.
Ahab married an idol worshipper. Men and women of God, starting out innocently answering His call, can be seduced to commit acts of disobedience, out of their own lustful and covetous desires, to the point they have entered into covenants, with demons of perversity engaging in spiritual adultery. This is getting in bed with whoredoms against God. Releasing the Jezebel modus operandi to begin working in their ministry. They will begin to experience a measure of success and expansion. But, eventually trouble comes. Not before their realm of influence is inhabited with soothsaying ministry, and a mechanism of restraint is established against the anointings of God, that would expose the invisible workings of the Jezebel modus operandi.
A satanic seductive, network of perverse spirits, seeking to over throw the saints of God.
There is no such thing as a Jezebel Spirit in scripture, per se, but the Ahab Jezebel dynamic is administered as a proven operative to take down works sanctioned by God, and turn them into a platform serving wickednesses in high places, in order to commit whoredoms against Jehovah. Some refer to Jeremiah’s mention of the Queen of heaven. The queen of Heaven is referring to Anath or Anat a Semitic goddess as commentaries for Jeremiah 44 suggest, but they are all tied in together and belong to the same rebellion from the beginning of time. When Lucifer attempted to exalt himself above God, the Most High, and a third of the angels fell with him.
Men and women in the earth found themselves fallen, as well, through the disobedience of their first parents Adam and Eve, becoming corrupted by their engagements with God’s arch enemy Lucifer, and the fallen angels.
All idol worship falls under the hierarchical workings of spiritual wickednesses in high places, that cause men and women to sin in committing adultery against God. In other words the names of the players can all be different but they are all tied into a satanic, global agenda, to serve rebellion against the Kingdom of God. There are works born of the Spirit, selfless acts of the saints. There are works born of the flesh, these are selfish acts to promote agenda’s under the covering of Christian ministry. Where Christ is named but not obeyed. Where he is said to be worshiped but not truly followed. Yet devout people lend their resources, because they think it is a noble Christ like work.
In the book of Revelation of Jesus Christ, there was a prophet and teacher, who was possessed with the same kind of seducing and perverse spirits, to get people to join her, in the bed of whoredoms she was lying in.
Her name wasn’t necessarily Jezebel as some commentaries suggest may be the case. But she was like Jezebel of old! Revelation 2:20 tells us that she teaches and prophesies. Jesus called her that woman Jezebel! Leading God’s servants into sexual immorality; PARTAKING of offerings sacrificed to idols. This is both spiritual and natural adultery, fornication, and participation in false doctrine; that include stubborn opinions of men, utilizing the sacrifices of others to work in their ministries. There is the Mother of Harlots mentioned in Revelation and these workings described here are hard lined into that satanic operation, that will one day meet an appointed demise.
Meanwhile, we that resist the devil should draw close to God and avoid the seductive lures of this dynamic duo.
If an Ahabic oppressed leadership attempts to preach on Jezebel, they will often teach and prophesy under the power of darkness that is engaging them in her modes of operation. That is the Ahab component deflecting blame from himself who needs to repent and divorce his or her sin of idolatry. Renouncing selfish ambitions. The key to discerning false teachings regarding Jezebel is noting the absence of the Ahabic profile responsible for her. Unrepentant leadership shifts the blame away from themselves, this is another modus operandi of Jezebel, deflection and witch hunts. Often targeting prophets of God. As long as Ahabic leadership continues un corrected and unrepentant, Jezebelic agendas don’t have to budge. Does it seem all so twisted? It in fact is!
Let me remind you of the workings of Leviathan, the KING of all the sons of pride! The twisting serpent! They serve one agenda. Rebellion against God.
Jesus said, He was against the Church that TOLERATES Jezebel! The CHURCH, the ANGEL of the CHURCH OF THYATIRA, was warned about this Jezebel of Revelation. Even though that church’s attributes were love, service, and patience, including the development in good works, Jesus warned the Church not to tolerate her. Those who will not get out of bed with spiritual and natural adulterers, and fornicators, or those that tolerate them, will suffer great tribulation. Jesus said the fruit (or that which springs forth from this modus operandi) will die. While the acts described in this passage seem overt, many times they are not. For example, putting a man or woman on a pedestal is idolatry. This is sin. A man or woman minister who perpetuates this practice, who feeds into it, or tolerates it, is a party to the sin of idolatry.
Fellowships and individuals plagued with sexual sin, in the leadership and among layman, who are committing the sin of adultery; both natural, spiritual, and emotional; against spouse and God, are yielding to seducing spirits that work under whoredoms.
Churches often inundated with illnesses, along with an unusual percentage of medicated members, under the influence of legal pharmaceuticals, are showing signs of the Judgements of a Jezebel Ahab modes operandi, falling under the control of seducing spirits and sorcery. These all come under the sin of whoredoms. Spirit of death, and premature deaths, both natural and spiritual, plague churches that tolerate harlotries against God, where warnings have been ignored. Not discerning the body of Christ, and his selfless sacrifice of the cross.
Idolatry robs people of their purpose, and their destiny. God dealt with Ahab, and the Church of THYATIRA against this satanic modus operandi of seducing God’s creation to serve and worship idols.
Many churches in America have been busy about works born of the flesh, rather than that which is born of the Spirit of God, many resources plundered by Satan, belonging to the saints. Man has been exalted, many times over as personalities have been worshipped, and firmly set on the throne, rather than God in this humanistic society, in the world we live in today. Our church programs disengage us from the mind of Christ, putting us on auto pilot for every season we pass through. Repetitive prayers, hymns, and bible lessons, dutifully offered, but mindlessly engaged.
The Spirit broods over us to impart refreshings and renewal but so few break away from form, to embrace Him.
Revelation 2:18-25 To the angel of the church in Thyatira write:
These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first. Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds. Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets, ‘I will not impose any other burden on you, except to hold on to what you have until I come.
In the story of King Ahab, he repented for a season. Churches can repent, influential men, and women of God, can resist seducing, perverse spirits, and denounce their idolatry.
This thing can be cleansed out. Jehu, in 2 Kings 9:33 (who plays a type of Jesus, in this passage) called upon Jezebel’s Eunuch’s (a representation of non male or female servants) to cast her down. In other words, Jezebel workers, that carry out the day to day objectives of this modus operandi are not necessarily specifically male or female. No females in the story of Ahab and Jezebel other than Jezebel and her alleged* daughter Athaliah, worked wickedness like her servants, subjects, and prophets, who were all male, or castorated males. The point is they were all male. So in the operatives of a Jezebelic influence, it is more about emasculating Godly authority from its power, so that the Jezebel net work is made comfortable, as Jezebel’s castorated servants made her life easy.
This is more than just a female manipulation over male counterparts. It is a genderless entity manipulating a soulish working.
It is a well oiled machine capturing the souls of men and women called to authority in God’s Kingdom, where the complete surrender of all reproductive capability of ones life and purpose is sacrificed to serve rebellion. These servants created by God to produce fruit in their lives, lose their productivity serving the Jezebel operative. Because this is how the enemy wants to drag the Church into serving idols. Committing whoredoms against God. Male or female leadership must stay sober, do not be deceived don’t become like Ahab, loving self more than God. Do not give seducing spirits place! The Jezebel M.O., uses both male and females as its servant.
We overcome the Jezebel modus operandi by resisting seductions, and casting them down! Resist the devil and he will flee from you! Draw nigh unto God He will draw close to you!
Jezebel is dead and in hell. The demonic hierarchy and net working that used her during King Ahab’s reign is still working today, flesh is not what we war with, the judgments of these evil spirits has its appointed day. Our duty is to resist the devil! Stop working works of the flesh. Quit building kingdoms of men and start building the Kingdom of God. Let that dying thing die, that is dead; and stop throwing the lives and sacrifices of the saints into it! Jehu, shows us how to overcome the lure of a Jezebel operative. Resist the devil, draw close to God, and he will draw close to you! It’s not that hard to recognize. Any place you go called a church, that has a platform, under a spot light, that one man or woman resides under, time and time again, is a meeting place for the Ahab Jezebel compliant. Those that sit in the shadows of this regime, serving their time, life, and resources, are tolerating Jezebel who is flourishing under the Ahabic regime. Revelation 2:20 says, “You tolerate her!” Jehu in 2 Kings 9:33 said to her emasculated servants “Cast her down!”
Resist temptation and cast down all thoughts that exalt themselves above the knowledge and wisdom of God! Throw down works of the flesh. Which is as the sin of witchcraft. End it!
The Raw Truth
1. Jezebel influence rounds up a posse from the pulpit against the prophets of God.
2. Jezebel influence incites people in power against the Elijah anointing.
3.Jezebel enablers are positions of authority that yield to emasculation of power.
4 Jezebel servants are not quiet or soft spoken men, who avoid the microphone.
5.Jezebel servants are not female personalities or women in leadership.
6. Jezebel servants castorate servants for Jezebel. Or, strip them of power.
7. Jezebel operatives don’t take control it is given to them.
8. Jezebel makes a mockery of self serving, fearful, and controlling, shepherds.
9. Jezebel hates obedient, anointed, men and women of God, who are strong in Him.
The worker of whoredoms against God, procures power to destroy the counsel and wisdom of God, that would identify the Ahab Jezebel dynamic. This is a confusing conundrum for those seeking discernment.
Remember in this equation Jezebel is an invisible force. We war not against flesh and blood. An assembly of saints or a ministry controlled by an Ahab Jezebel dynamic begins to serve a satanic agenda which is simply a work of the flesh. Works of the flesh and witch craft are all in the same suit. They serve men not God, agenda’s not destinies, and the Kingdom of Self not Heaven. They are as similar to the real thing as you ever want to get. The offspring ministries of a church or denomination given over to Jezebelic control, will die, as dead works burn. Jezebel’s reign of terror begins with a work sanctioned by God as was King Ahab’s reign. Ahab’s disobedience and alliances, with the enemies of God, brought trouble to His reign.
Wrap up summery.
Ahab was an enabler and a compromiser, he allowed Jezebel to replace the prophets of God with soothsayers. Churches, who have spirits working the Jezebel operation, have no real presbytery, (active older saints) no true fivefold ministry, or prophets among them. They begin to filter out strong male leadership, and over time become full to the brim, with a congregation that has a passive effeminate nature, supporting the dynamic duo’s lust for power, growth, and expansion. A passive congregation will often find itself under the control of an overbearing pastor. Both of the Ahabic Jezebelic operations could be working in one man or woman in charge. Surrounded by emasculated authority that serves their rebellion.
As Christ was tempted in the wilderness, so this same modus operandi of whoredoms (embodied by the flesh woman Jezebel) sought to seduce the very anointing that replaced her husband.
Because anointed Jehu confronted her servants, Jezebel’s power came to an end. Her final place in history was lower than that of the dogs. This spiritual darkness does not like to give up its high position and manifests great arrogance before it leaves, with a final attempt to shamefully seduce the one who is appointed to call for its banishment. That is why the last scene before Jezebel’s demise is a perfect picture of the behavior of this spiritual darkness called seduction, that throws everything it has into its last battle before defeat. The nature of a seducing spirit reveals itself openly in defeat.
The actual flesh woman Jezebel, went down in full costume to a dinner for the dogs. Fully attired in wardrobe headdress, fully made up in her cosmetics, fully engaged in her sorceries.
Ahab and Jezebel never “dirtied” their hands, they let eunuchs, soothsayers, and nobles of their net work do that for them. Jehu never dirtied his hands with Jezebel. The Eunuchs took care of that. Those servants of Jezebel men made as “not male or female” shows us several types of human manifestations of a servant or slave of Jezebel operations, that simply need to be cast down, beginning in the mind, as an act of choice, to begin their freedom from perversions. It goes like this: The flesh woman named Jezebel had eunuchs that kept her comfortable, and met her needs. The human servants of this network of unclean spirits serving the Jezebel modus operandi can either be male or female, they can be spiritually emasculated men, or dominating females, they can like wise display effeminate characteristics in males or, manly characteristics in females. However, the most dangerous servant of the Ahab Jezebel operative, and the most common, is one that looks and acts no different than any one else male or female. But has been altered in their purpose.
These servants whom ever they are must renounce their whoredoms against God by throwing down Jezebel which is a battle against their mind in an act of obedience to Christ.
In leadership today, a man or woman committed to Godly leadership abide in Christ and serve the Kingdom of God! For those whom have set themselves above God in acts of disobedience and selfish ambition, this means to repent, and renounce works of the flesh, and turning back to a life of obedience. Casting down every high thought that exalts itself above the knowledge and wisdom of God, bringing every high thought or suggestion, into the captivity of the obedience of Christ! This is the beginning of overcoming seducing spirits, and perversity; that falls under the wicked works of spiritual adultery, or whoredoms against God. As Jehu challenged Jezebel’s Eunuchs on whom they would serve, so is the cry of the Spirit of Christ, “Who is on my side, who will you serve? The Eunuchs answer was in their action, they threw Jezebel down!
Galatians 5:19-21 New King James Version (NKJV)
Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will NOT inherit the kingdom of God.

Seducing Spirits (1 Timothy 4:1
In a world where things are often not what they seem, it is a Christian’s duty to pursue truth. In Christ it’s that one thing obtainable for wanting it. He that is hungry and thirsty for righteousness sake shall be filled. Deception is for those who love not the truth and hate not the lie. When life throws us a set of circumstances out side of our control, such as a destructive storm, or a personal life altering event, the only two things we can really depend on is truth and trust, the truth of God’s word and trust in His promises.
Rebuilding on a firm foundation begins with truth, in the following assessments. In the assessment of damage and estimate of repairs.
After every storm, it is up to us to decide what is salvageable and what is loss. To count the cost of rebuilding. With God no task is insurmountable. No damage un restorable, no impossibility impossible. What limits God is not our lack of strength, or our fear over the circumstances, or even our hurt or anger toward Him. What limits God is our slowness in accepting truth. The truth that what just happened did in fact happen, is not something that can easily be comprehended, as any one who has been in an accident, war zone, or disaster can tell you. Yet the sooner we realize that we just servived the unsurvivable, thanking God in all things, the better positioned we are to minimize further loss and damage by engaging a sound mind in the immediate events around us. This comes easier for those who have already disciplined their mind in prayer and the pursuit of peace as a daily endeavor. All is paramount in accepting what can be done when starting over.
The truth in cause, and the evaluation of viability in what remains. Foundations and infrastructure are often left in the aftermath of a storm, that can be restored.
However, the lesson learned following Hurricane Sandy, teaches us that what we rebuild on, could be a set up for even more devastation. The famous board walk along the New Jersey shore that was badly damaged, was hastily rebuilt only to go up in flames because of faulty wiring, not replaced from the old structure. This could have been avoided by an uncomprimising acceptance of truth in the practice of principles and standards. For example the word of God tells us not to build in the sand, not to patch an old garment with new fabric. Not to put new wine in old wine skins. Asking questions of our standards. Did we build a mud hut in a flood zone? Did we erect a trailer in tornado ally? Did we build a house over a dry creek? Will rebuilding be in vain because of climate change? Will the same material used before be a liability? Should a wood structure be built-in drought stricken “foothills? That is why we have zoning laws. That is why the bible and its standards for living, its rules of engagement, its wisdom in making right decisions, are reasons why we do research, and get are permits, from God to build. So that errors will not be made all over again.
We can’t break new ground with out removing debris. Getting over the fear that something salvageable will be missed. That somehow moving on, means giving up on dreams. At some point, we have to step back, stop picking through our loss, and turn the destruction over to clearance. This is truth in acceptance. To clear the damage. This is letting go and letting God. It is the last decision made concerning the past, and the first decision made towards the future. It is a conscious decision to release what was, and begin to embrace hope for what will be. We can cling to old relics of the past and bring them into our life as a monument of all our yesterdays, or we can fill the walls and shelves of our new day, with the treasures discovered in life’s present lessons and value. Monuments are good at what they do, they remind us to remember lessons learned, in previous journeys. We go to them to do that, but no one should live in a grave yard. Yet, people live in the past in their minds all the time, mourning what could have been, or even what should have been. There is no path of renewal there, only sorrow and regret. But God doesn’t call us to that.
Truth in estimates, the cost of repair, and requirements to rebuild. Truth in resource, having what it takes economically and emotionally.
Being honest in the will to rebuild, and contentment in what was. Asking yourself if rebuilding where it ended is what you really want. The circumstances of life will manage those who refuse to live it truthfully, purposely, and principally. We may have standards, but might live and work in a lawless atmosphere where other people are setting their standards that bring us shame. At some point there may be a time when preservation is not a decision to be made, but a response for survival. When your back yard begins to turn into a mud slide down a ravine there is no time to plan, all you can do is react. What can be noted ahead however, is that structures built on a mountain side are susceptible to mud slides during heavy rain. A husband battling addiction, who is the bread-winner, is that house on the mountain side in a heavy rain. A wife who has a gambling problem that is in charge of paying the mortgage payment is too. Wisdom sees the potential collapse and fault in non principled living, and makes arrangements for its failure.
This is not a fear driven assessment. It is truth in making an assessment.
Being emotionally lead is soulish. Being spiritually led by the Spirit of God, is a yielded life to the counsel of God’s word. They that walk in the Spirit will not fulfill the desires of the flesh Galatians 5. God says, acknowledge me in ALL your ways and I will guide and direct your path! Let HIM search your heart. For the spirit of man is the candle of the Lord searching the inward part of the belly. Because the heart is exceedingly wicked we cannot trust it. That is why we go to the Father with the intent to be honest with him, with a willingness to accept the truth and not deny it. For an honest and truthful assesment of our lives, and circumstances, clears the fog. Decisions that are right come from seeing right. Hearing right. This needs to be actively contended for. Deception and denial are our worst enemy in a time of crises. In the world we live in now, we have already been lulled into a slumber in the midst of a raging storm, when we really need to have our wits about us. Jesus said watch and pray. Today, we need to be fully awakened and seek truth no matter what the cost.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 King James Version (KJV) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
beloved let us love, Christian lifestyle, deana barnes, God, home meeting, house hold of faith, inordinate affections, Jesus, newinepouring, one baptism, one faith, one lord, racism in the church, the loss in creating divisions
1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy race, a peculiar people; that you should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Inordinate affection is an over the top passion, about anything other than our love for the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. An inordinate affection causes us to act disorderly and leads to sin. The greek word associated with it is pathos, meaning mental- you find it in the word: pathological, or psychopathic. We can get mental about a lot of things in this world these days and loose the mind of Christ in it! In fact, with the help of mainstream media and its dangerous slant on truth, many are developing opinions and a world view, in these end times, that will feed into what is described in the bible as the great deception. Satan, the bible says, is like a roaring lion pacing back and forth, seeking for an opportunity to devour. He is looking for the hamstring knock out, that will take us down. For example:
There are Christians that have kept a level head so far, maintaining a balanced view on current social headlines, or issues, until it began to bleed into the NFL.
Suddenly, we have people that (have been thought to be rational and balanced, in their views) going over the top, with inordinate or pathos’ responses because now it has touched on something that they are truly passionate about! The enemy will find our boiling point that will throw us into the ring, letting the god of this world, and the prince of the power of the air, fuel anger to the point we become inflamed; rather than, allowing the Spirit of God to temper our passions.
Nothing, should warrant division among the family of God in these days of ethnic uprisings, prophesied by Christ. We are one holy race. That is it. In all things there is the mind of Christ to be had! If we cleave to our heritages forgetting that God said our heritage is of HIM, then that will breed contention, in times of tension, among ethnic uprising. I suspect that there will be those that have such strong ties, culturally, they will not embrace their heritage that is of the Father, and they will forsake it. Had they ever looked into their identity in Christ, they would have understood what a great inheritance we have in Him. Heirs they are, who believe in their heart that God rose Jesus from the dead, confessing with their mouth He is Lord! Romans 10:9-10
In a world such as ours we should know one thing more than anything else. That is Christ and Him crucified. Seeking discernment of spirits, to differentiate between what all should be known, and what the prince of the power of the air wants us to believe.
Little Children guard your hearts and minds, keep yourself from idols, as John would say. Remembering, we all shall need adjusting, and do even now, like Peter when Jesus said, “You don’t know what spirit ye are of.” For everyone will be tempted to activism when it gets hard, this will be difficult. In all things we should remember that we are Ambassadors of Jesus Christ. So, all we should do and say, is what HE would do and say, to those who dwell outside of HIS Kingdom.
Many, are well acquainted with Jesus but have rejected him, and HIS servants, time and time again; and would have the mind of Christ now, in these days of crisis in America, if they would have listened to Him a long time ago. Still, we compel all … to come. We the (true church) will have the answers. We are citizens of the Kingdom of God. Hopefully, there will be media out reach, and I know many are set up for this, who can be a relevant voice of reason. Rightly dividing the word of truth.
The Lord, spoke to me about a leavening that would be introduced to the whole lump, if we didn’t make sure to: “Guard your hearts and minds in the days and weeks to come.” I heard the Lord say, “You knew it would be just a matter of time?” I answered, “Yes Lord.” Knowing to warn all that love HIM, to know that our affections, our passions; who or what we love, will be used by the enemy to pull any one of us into an agenda, that is earth bound, not heaven sent. In these amazing times the Lord will use His anointed to do great and mighty exploits. Many in the Spirit poised to be a clear and present force with in these days of shakings to come. To be a steady voice in the wilderness, and a stabilizer in the midst of chaotic times. Nevertheless, new works are always at the risk of take over, when they are easiest to infiltrate. That is why we have a carnage of slaughtered unborn, and sexualy abused children, that are targeted in this ruthless world we live in. Satan knows new beginnings don’t have a firm identity to resist splitting its purpose, or aborting it altogether. It will begin with what we think is right and true, because a passion has flared up on the inside of us! Just like pro abortion activists! But the question has to be asked, where did it come from, how was it fueled? Will we end up with more dead works in the world? Another voice of compromise, a mixture in this world? Or, will what God has begun among his Church, His ekklesia, become the representation of the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth? An Embassy representing Yeshuah, and His Kingdom ways. In this they will know us by OUR love.
Leavening is a fermentation that begins to spread in the dough, it lies dormant until all the right conditions come together and then it spreads very quickly.
If one were to change their mind about adding yeast, it can only be done if the fermentation is localized and then cut out, after its been introduced. Leavening is like sin. SIN means to fall short. A thing can seem right until it is debated, or another side is told. A man thinks to himself his way is right, but the end of that way is death. I pray that in every way, we as Christians seek the full counsel of God, in all things. Because perilous times are coming. Why should we take a rabid dog by the ears in an argument not our own, in a time when evil is all around us? We are in this world not of it, and careful prayer for supernatural wisdom is required to navigate through all things called a controversy, victoriously. In Mathew 24 Jesus said, there will be wars and rumors of war, nation will rise against nation .. the word in greek for nation is ETHOS’ from it the word ethnic is derived. Believe me brothers and sisters, you will want both feet in the Kingdom of God in these days of wars, and rumors of wars, nations rising up against nations! Not leaving one foot, stubbornly, stirring in those sin born controversies where there is no clear path to embrace. For sin lies in the heart of men. The heart is exceedingly wicked. Cleave to God and His son the Lord Jesus, He will give you a VOICE that will be heard, in these ethnic risings, and rumors of war! You are of one faith and baptism, you are of a Holy Priesthood one nation. Why do the heathen rage and the peoples imagine a vain thing? As we read on in Mathew chapter 24 the scripture says, “and this gospel shall be preached …” see that? (And) (while) (as) these things are going on – This gospel shall be preached!
We cannot be doing both! It is clearly one way or the other. Either you and I are part of the uprising, the wars, and rumors of wars, or we are preaching this gospel Of the Lord Jesus Christ! Remember you are in Christ, dead to the old man! The old man is a reveller! The message of the cross, and true repentance of sin is the answer to mankind’s ills.
Psalms 2:8 Ask me and I will make the Nations [Etho’-s] your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.
Put on the New Self. If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For you are DEAD, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.
Mortify therefore your members which are on the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience: In the which you also walked some time, when you lived in them. But now you also put off all these; ANGER, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is RENEWED in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is NEITHER Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor un circumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
Put on therefore, AS THE ELECT of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do you. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also you are called in one body; and be you thankful. Let the WORD of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and ADMONISHING one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
... they lifted up their voice, Body of Christ, Church, Corporate Anointing, David's Tabernacle, deana barnes, dee barnes, God The Father, Holy Spirit, Home Meetings, Jesus, meetings, moves of God, moves of the Spirit, newinepouring, one accord, one voice
… they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, you are God, which have made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that is in them …Acts 4:24
I want to talk about the power of corporate moves of God, brought into smaller meetings at home. When we meet together in Christ we might as well begin to think of ourselves as the member of an orchestra or choir! Because this is what the Church is, an instrument in God’s orchestra! After all we are called the Body of Christ, and every part has his or her place.
Lifting Up One Voice
While in buildings, a larger group usually has a platform for appointees to lead out, and bring congregants into unified prayer or worship; in smaller groups it doesn’t necessarily have to work that way, because they are often less structured. We need to remember the first Christian family met under circumstances more similar to a home meeting, rather than buildings and platforms; with microphones, and speakers. Jesus said that when ever two or three are gathered in His name, there HE is in our midst. This is going to be different than our personal time with Him, that is usually inwardly focused. Christ is in us, and we are in Him. In a group He draws us outward to the center of the gathering, where He is. He is the head of the Church, and we (through Him) become joined in a corporate move of HIS Spirit.
When we continue to gather in this way Jesus nits our hearts together, and we become unified in spirit, as the group evolves.
Coming together in one mind and accord is quickly accomplished by praying, and worshiping together, as long as the prayer, praise, and worship, achieves corporate status. What the bible calls “coming together in one mind and in one accord.” As strange as it seems, individuals in a group gathering can be so timid and internal in their prayers and worship, that the group never achieves a true unity of spirit. In fact fractions are more likely to exist in a corporate setting that does nothing to spiritually unify the people to function as a body. Jesus is unable to show His power among them, they must yield to the corporate anointing, and enter in.
A good way to enter in is by simply yielding to an anointed vocal lead that has lifted their voice up in prayer, or praise, to draw the group into unity. In a smaller setting the group can just begin to move in open laudation, until a lead voice is made distinct while praises to God go upward. The lead laudation is an anointed voice of worship, prayer, or praise, that the group finds easy to follow. Your spirit will feel the power of agreement.
What is then good to do is to blend into that laudation. As other voices blend, the lead out dissolves into a corporate voice, this group has achieved a “one in mind and one in accord” voice of praise, worship, and prayer. The lord uses whom ever HE wills, and with that we begin to blend our voice in worship, with the most anointed laudation going forth among the saints, (whom ever the Spirit has moved upon) and this is going upward, and not inward, but is of throne room power! Following inspired leads in the Spirit is called “being carried in” to anointed worship. Worship leaders do that for congregations all the time, if they have the anointing to do so.
I’ve seen groups become so unified that no lead voices are needed, they just enter into the high praises of God all at once! Jumping into the deep side of the river of God all at the same time!
It is the Holy Spirit that leads the saints to a higher ground of worship, praise, power, and ministry. Remember we want that because it is the anointing that breaks the yoke! An Holy Spirit inspired group breaks powerful resistances! Sometimes, in spirit filled meetings, there is an appointed person that has that spearhead anointing and they may do that for a season. But, it can change, and should be interchangeable as new lead voices enter in. As the scripture says when something is revealed to another they should then have their turn, and the word says let the first prophet then yield. 1 Corinth 29:29-30
So when a new voice of leading matches the existing voice in anointing, the new voice should be given place, that will lead the group up and onward toward unified prayer, worship, and praise! This is good practice in prophecy, ministry, sharing the word, and spiritual songs. Sometimes the person who leads out hears a laudation of praise in a less bold voice that they blend with, and they amplify it up corporately and that starts the one mind and one accord laudations, because they carried an anointing that leaped in their spirit when it was heard. A wise worship leader will amplify from their platform what is hitting the masses, in waves of glory, to pull it in and send it back out, that the glory reaches those at the far ends of the meeting place. In a smaller groups, the group just carries it on from glory to glory.
Give The Lord His Due
We Got to give God HIS first before we move in on a pre determined event or need. Sometimes, our Spirit filled worship brings so much power the needs are washed away, and freedom falls down like a blanket over everyone. The first Spirit filled meeting moved in this way, while all were praying in one accord, the power of God came down and they were all filled! When we pray, and a voice goes forth with power, and it is outward and not inward, and it leads and lifts the gathered believers up into corporate anointed prayer- then that unified prayer will carry against oppositions, against God’s people, on a corporate level, or even city wide.
It brings in the move of the Spirit! As one makes five thousand to run, two or more makes tens of thousands! This is the power of unified prayer against the enemy! In the event that the Spirit leads us into unified prayer, it is good to remember, our prayer closet prayers are wonderful, but corporate prayer ministry is a little different.
When we bury our face, or walk to a corner, and start praying to ourselves, or turn on our own music, and plug it into our ears, we are disbanding from the group.
We should do these kind of prayers before meetings, only. To get our heads straight for the group. It’s ok to have early time in a corporate setting to give people time alone with God, but when it’s time to come together, it is time to walk out of our prayer closet and join the group. When the saints of God continue in corporate ministry, the mind of Christ will come forth. Christ is working by His Spirit, collectively in the midst of the saints, that are gathered. Together, our hearts are synchronized by the Spirit of the Lord to carry the burden of the Lord.
When we lead in prayer out loud we must not go to prayer changing from subject to subject, as if we are working through a list. We have to make sure we do not shift the focus, before others are able to audibly agree or enhance the prayer with their own spoken power of agreement. Saints that run through a list of prayers, leading in corporate prayer, are forgetting that they are not in their prayer closet, and that another instrument of God may harmonize on the matter, in a way God may reveal them to do so. That will add power towards the answer.
Also, when in corporate prayer our prayer focuses should be corporate when praying for individuals in the community. Instead of praying for that one in jail, pray for all those that are in jail and prison in the community. Or that one battling cancer, come against the spirit of cancer on all the saints of God you know. Trouble with a child, lift up all sons and daughters in rebellion, because in that group there is power to do it! Remembering to give room, and give place, to one another. So that not one stone is left un turned. For another vessel in the group may have a revelation to share on that burden of prayer; bringing words of knowledge, and wisdom, in the matter, that would move it into victory.
When corporate anointing is freely expressing itself in unity, an event of power and Holy distribution of healing and deliverances will ensue.
Like what happened on the day of Pentecost, a powerful move of God spilled out into the city through a Spirit filled, unified group, unashamedly worshipping God!
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with ONE ACCORD in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house. Act2:1”
This is how we can be sure to be led by the SPIRIT and not by our human spirit or emotions. When we allow group ministry to enter the house on a corporate level, at times healing and deliverances take place while we are busy unified in the Spirit, in worship and prayer. It is later after we have ushered in the SPIRIT like one mighty river (with our individual streams of worship, and prayer joining in) that there will be an abundance of anointing to do personal ministry over those who have already been under a deluge of power, in unified praise and worship.
This is that which loosens and pre-soaks hard roots so that personal ministry and deliverance will be most effective. Over the years I have had many prayer meetings, and home meetings, and have taught on corporate prayer. It is very sad to attend a prayer meeting at a church or an event that has 50 to a hundred people walking around, by themselves, standing in a corner, bent down at an alter, and milling around in the foyer, and you can hear a pin drop, with no unified voices lifted up! This is not corporate prayer. It is individual prayer in a corporate setting, and more times than not the Spirit of God is quenched, and the power that could have been released from that meeting, is for ever lost.
When groups first begin to come together. It is important that ministry doesn’t get locked into an introverted flow, time and time again.
It’s important to minister to one another, and is in many ways the whole point; but, when we give the Father the first portion of anything- the latter portion will be multiplied, in healings, deliverances; and in word, and prophecy! As we seen with Peter, who preached to the people when 3,000 were saved! He did this after a corporately anointed meeting!
Getting Started With A Reserved Group
If you have a church or group and it is difficult to bring the group together in one mind and accord, than making a gesture to come in a circle to hold hands is a good start. That is a unity excersize, as is singing songs, and letting people each share, breaks the ice. But you may have to embarrass your flesh to lead them into out loud laudation yourself. Go ahead there is usually one just hoping you would so they can join you in the bunch! Lead them into that abandoned worship, where each one forgets about him or herself self, and lifts their voice entering into the flow of the Spirit- this is called the high praises of God, and is what creates extraordinary moves of the Spirit.
Holy! Holy! Holy! Lord God almighty! Who was, is and is the to come!
TOMMY HICKS’ END-TIMES VISION.
The Body Of Christ Vision
Revivalist: Tommy Hicks July 25th, 1961
My message begins July 25, about 2:30 in the morning at Winnipeg, Canada.
I had hardly fallen asleep when the vision and the revelation that God gave me came before me. The vision came three times, exactly in detail, the morning of July 25, 1961. I was so stirred and so moved by the revelation that this has changed my complete outlook upon the body of Christ, and upon the end time ministries. The greatest thing that the church of Jesus Christ has ever been given lies straight ahead. It is so hard to help men and women to realize and understand the thing that God is trying to give his people in the end times. I received a letter several weeks ago from one of our native evangelists down in Africa, down in Nairobi. This man and his wife were on their way to Tanganyika. They could neither read nor could they write, but we had been supporting them for over two years. As they entered into the territory of Tanganyika, they came across a small village. The entire village was evacuating because of a plague that had hit the village. He came across natives that were weeping, and he asked them what was wrong. They told him of their mother and father who had suddenly died, and they had been dead for three days. They had to leave. They were afraid to go in; they were leaving them in the cottage. He turned and asked them where they were. They pointed to the hut and he asked them to go with him, but they refused. They were afraid to go. The native and his wife went to this little cottage and entered in where the man and woman had been dead for three days. He simply stretched forth his hand in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and spoke the man’s name and the woman’s name and said, “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to come back to your bodies.” Instantaneously these two heathen people who had never known Jesus Christ as their Savior sat up and immediately began to praise God. The spirit and the power of God came into the life of those people. To us that may seem strange and a phenomenon, but that is the beginning of these end-time ministries. God is going to take the do-nothings, the nobodies, the unheard-of, the no-accounts. He is going to take every man and every woman and he is going to give to them this outpouring of the Spirit of God.
In the book of Acts we read that “In the last days,” God said, “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh.”
I wonder if we realize what he meant when God said, “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh.” I do not think I fully realized nor could I understand the fullness of it, and then I read from the book of Joel: “Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain -” (Joel 2:23). It is not only going to be the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, but he is going to give to his people in these last days a double portion of the power of God! As the vision appeared to me after I was asleep, I suddenly found myself in a great high distance. Where I was, I do not know. But I was looking down upon the earth. Suddenly the whole earth came into my view. Every nation, every kindred, every tongue came before my sight from the east and the west, the north and the south. I recognized every country and many cities that I had been in, and I was almost in fear and trembling as I beheld the great sight before me: and at that moment when the world came into view, it began to lightning and thunder. As the lightning flashed over the face of the earth, my eyes went downward and I was facing the north. Suddenly I beheld what looked like a great giant, and as I stared and looked at it, I was almost bewildered by the sight. It was so gigantic and so great. His feet seemed to reach to the north pole and his head to the south. Its arms were stretched from sea to sea. I could not even begin to understand whether this be a mountain or this be a giant, but as I watched, I suddenly beheld a great giant. I could see his head was struggling for life. He wanted to live, but his body was covered with debris from head to foot, and at times this great giant would move his body and act as though it would even raise up at times. And when it did, thousands of little creatures seemed to run away. Hideous creatures would run away from this giant, and when he would become calm, they would come back. All of a sudden this great giant lifted his hand towards heaven, and then it lifted its other hand, and when it did these creatures by the thousands seemed to flee away from this giant and go into the darkness of the night. Slowly this great giant began to rise and as he did, his head and hands went into the clouds. As he rose to his feet he seemed to have cleansed himself from the debris and filth that was upon him, and he began to raise his hands into the heavens as though praising the Lord, and as he raised his hands, they went even unto the clouds. Suddenly, every cloud became silver, the most beautiful silver I have ever known.
As I watched this phenomenon it was so great I could not even begin to understand what it all meant. I was so stirred as I watched it, and I cried unto the Lord and I said, “Oh Lord, what is the meaning of this.” and I felt as if I was actually in the Spirit and I could feel the presence of the Lord even as I was asleep. And from those clouds suddenly there came great drops of liquid light raining down upon this mighty giant, and slowly, slowly, this giant began to melt, began to sink itself in the very earth itself, and as he melted, his whole form seemed to have melted upon the face of the earth, and this great rain began to come down. Liquid drops of light began to flood the very earth itself and as I watched this giant that seemed to melt, suddenly it became millions of people over the face of the earth. As I beheld the sight before me, people stood up all over the world! They were lifting their hands and they were praising the Lord. At that very moment there came a great thunder that seemed to roar from the heavens. I turned my eyes toward the heavens and suddenly I saw a figure in white, in glistening white – the most glorious thing that I have ever seen in my entire life. I did not see the face, but somehow I knew it was the Lord Jesus Christ, and he stretched forth his hand, and as he did, he would stretch it forth to one, and to another, and to another. And as he stretched forth his hand upon the nations and the people of the world – men and women – as he pointed toward them, this liquid light seemed to flow from his hands into them, and a mighty anointing of God came upon them, and those people began to go forth in the name of the Lord. I do not know how long I watched it.
It seemed it went into days and weeks and months. And I beheld this Christ as he continued to stretch forth his hand; but there was a tragedy. There were many people as he stretched forth his hand that refused the anointing of God and the call of God. I saw men and women that I knew. People that I felt would certainly receive the call of God. But as he stretched forth his hand toward this one and toward that one, they simply bowed their head and began to back away. And each of those that seemed to bow down and back away, seemed to go into darkness. Blackness seemed to swallow them everywhere. I was bewildered as I watched it, but these people that he had anointed, hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, in Africa, England, Russia, China, America, all over the world, the anointing of God was upon these people as they went forward in the name of the Lord. I saw these men and women as they went forth. They were ditch diggers, they were washerwomen, they were rich men, they were poor men. I saw people who were bound with paralysis and sickness and blindness and deafness. As the Lord stretched forth to give them this anointing, they became well, they became healed, and they went forth! And this is the miracle of it – this is the glorious miracle of it – those people would stretch forth their hands exactly as the Lord did, and it seemed as if there was this same liquid fire in their hands. As they stretched forth their hands they said, “According to my word, be thou made whole.” As these people continued in this mighty end-time ministry, I did not fully realize what it was, and I looked to the Lord and said, “What is the meaning of this?” And he said, “This is that which I will do in the last days. I will restore all that the cankerworm, the palmerworm, the caterpiller – I will restore all. that they have destroyed. This, my people, in the end times will go forth.
As a mighty army shall they sweep over the face of the earth.” As I was at this great height, I could behold the whole world. I watched these people as they were going to and fro over the face of the earth. Suddenly there was a man in Africa and in a moment he was transported by the Spirit of God, and perhaps he was in Russia, or China or America or some other place, and vice versa. All over the world these people went, and they came through fire, and through pestilence, and through famine. Neither fire nor persecution, nothing seemed to stop them. Angry mobs came to them with swords and with guns. And like Jesus, they passed through the multitudes and they could not find them, but they went forth in the name of the Lord, and everywhere they stretched forth their hands, the sick were healed, the blind eyes were opened. There was not a long prayer, and after I had reviewed the vision many times in my mind, and I thought about it many times, I realised that I never saw a church, and I never saw or heard a denomination, but these people were going in the name of the Lord of Hosts. Hallelujah!
As they marched forth in everything they did as the ministry of Christ in the endtimes.
… these people were ministering to the multitudes over the face of the earth. Tens of thousands, even millions seemed to come to the Lord Jesus Christ as these people stood forth and gave the message of the kingdom, of the coming kingdom, in this last hour. It was so glorious, but it seems as though there were those that rebelled, and they would become angry and they tried to attack those workers that were giving the message. God is going to give the world a demonstration in this last hour as the world has never known. These men and women are of all walks of life, degrees will mean nothing. I saw these workers as they were going over the face of the earth. When one would stumble and fall, another would come and pick him up. There were no “big I” and “little you,” but every mountain was brought low and every valley was exalted, and they seemed to have one thing in common – there was a divine love, a divine love that seemed to flow forth from these people as they worked together, and as they lived together. It was the most glorious sight that I have ever known. Jesus Christ was the theme of their life. They continued and it seemed the days went by as I stood and beheld this sight. I could only cry, and sometimes I laughed. It was so wonderful as these people went throughout the face of the whole earth, bringing forth in this last end time.
As I watched from the very heaven itself, there were times when great deluges of this liquid light seemed to fall upon great congregations, and that congregation would lift up their hands and seemingly praise God for hours and even days as the Spirit of God came upon them. God said, “I will pour my Spirit upon all flesh,” and that is exactly this thing. And to every man and every woman that received this power, and the anointing of God, the miracles of God, there was no ending to it.
We have talked about miracles. We have talked about signs and wonders,
but I could not help but weep as I read again this morning, at 4 o’clock this morning the letter from our native workers. This is only the evidence of the beginning for one man, a “do-nothing, an unheard-of,” who would go and stretch forth his hand and say, “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to flow into your body.” I dropped to my knees and began to pray again, and I said, “Lord, I know that this time is coming soon!” And then again, as these people were going about the face of the earth, a great persecution seemed to come from every angle. Suddenly there was another great clap of thunder, that seemed to resound around the world, and I heard again the voice, the voice that seemed to speak, “Now this is my people. This is my beloved bride.” And when the voice spoke, I looked upon the earth and I could see the lakes and the mountains. The graves were opened and people from all over the world, the saints of all ages, seemed to be rising. And as they rose from the grave, suddenly all these people came from every direction. From the east and the west, from the north and the south, and they seemed to be forming again this gigantic body. As the dead in Christ seemed to be rising first, I could hardly comprehend it. It was so marvellous. It was so far beyond anything I could ever dream or think of. But as this body suddenly began to form, and take shape again, it took shape again in the form of this mighty giant, but this time it was different. It was arrayed in the most beautiful gorgeous white. Its garments were without spot or wrinkle as its body began to form, and the people of all ages seemed to be gathered into this body, and slowly, slowly, as it began to form up into the very heavens, suddenly from the heavens above, the Lord Jesus came, and became the head, and I heard another clap of thunder that said, “This is my beloved bride for whom I have waited. She will come forth even tried by fire. This is she that I have loved from the beginning of time.”
As I watched, my eyes suddenly turned to the far north,
and I saw seemingly destruction: men and women in anguish and crying out, and buildings in destruction. Then I heard again, the fourth voice that said, “Now is My wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth.” From the ends of the whole world, the wrath of God seemed to be poured out and it seemed that there were great vials of God’s wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth. I can remember it as though it happened a moment ago. I shook and trembled as I beheld the awful sight of seeing the cities, and whole nations going down into destruction. I could hear the weeping and wailing. I could hear people crying. They seemed to cry as they went into caves, but the caves in the mountains opened up. They leaped into water, but the water would not drown them. There was nothing that could destroy them. They were wanting to take their lives, but they could not. Then again I turned my eyes to this glorious sight, this body arrayed in beautiful white, shining garments. Slowly, slowly, it began to lift from the earth, and as it did, I awoke. What a sight I had beheld! I had seen the end-time ministries – the last hour. Again on July 27, at 2:30 in the morning, the same revelation, the same vision came again exactly as it did before. My life has been changed as I realised that we are living in that end time, for all over the world God is anointing men and women with this ministry. It will not be doctrine. It will not be a churchianity. It is going to be Jesus Christ. They will give forth the word of the Lord, and are going to say, “I heard it so many times in the vision and according to my word it shall be done.”

Those who trust in the LORD Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds his people.
A prophetic dream.
Lately, a lot has been said about Zionism and Zionists. I rejoice with the Jews, being returned to their homeland! Because God said that was what He was going to do in the latter years, He would return them to their land! We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. However my support stops at the rebuilding of the temple. Jesus tore that temple down and raised it up after three days. Clearly He spoke of HIS body. I’m not touching that, I’m not sending in my fifty dollars to clone back a red heifer. Jesus is the true temple. Do Christians really need to be reminded that the sacrificial lamb was sacrificed in the person of Jesus Christ, the son of God? Jesus, was once and for all sacrificed for the remission of sins, and there is no other provision, but what Jesus did for all man kind upon the cross, I would never support, or want to support, an institution that Christ himself has done away with! Reinstating the daily sacrifice, would be an obomination. If I am wrong then I am wrong; however, if I am right and Christians are helping to rebuild that temple to reinstate the daily sacrifice, they are Apostate. Paul called this category of activity, a bewitchment from the truth. The Jews do not have a separate work to be performed for them. The first Christians were Jews. They must receive Christ, as us all. Make sure you’re not perpetuating a damnable offense, by helping to raise an altar Christ himself has done away with. Nothing, can trump the Lord’s sacrifice. EVER.
That being said, scripture brings us back to the pure stream of God’s word! In regard to ZION!
I had a dream that cleared it all up for me. Maybe my dream will do it for you too.
There was a young Christian man. He seemed weathered and in some turmoil, his companion was dressed in black, she was about to have a baby. They were in an unholy union, a Christian bound to the Law. Married to it! He kept saying “When Zion comes it will be better, I’m looking for Zion.” This went on for awhile, he was defeated and broke, his clothes were ragged, and dirty. This Christian was full of sin awareness. He confessed Christ but the blood of Jesus needed more of his help, in his mind. He was married to the law. He was always coming up short. Him and the sin awareness he was married to were going to have a baby, his offspring would be called the Final Church of the Dead Born. Their destiny (man, woman, and offspring) was a place called much tribulation. My SPIRIT Had enough, listening to him mourn for Zion. In the dream I abruptly turned to him and said, Look here “I Am ZION!” The words rolled off my tongue with righteous indignation! Justice seemed to accent the words when I said, “I !!Am!! ZION!!!” A little surprised at myself, I had to stop and think about it, but knew it was true!
I want to tell you that before this dream I never really thought about Zion one way or another. Not in any special revelatory way. Though not surprised by the statement, I Am Zion. It fits in the scheme of things pretty well, right now.
I wanted him to know Christ as I did, and himself as the blood bought that we are. Letting those words drop deep into his soul, knowing how I would have to explain it to him later. He just kept looking at me in shock, while we were trying to get him to face this birth (the ramifications) of this un holy union HE was responsible for. The birth of his offspring (come from doubt and unbelief) would bring much tribulation. I believe that this dream reveals what mixing the law with grace looks like. Jesus came to redeem us from the curse of the law. If we continue sharing the altar of Christ’s sacrifice, with our own kind of righteousness, and refuse to seek understanding to know how great a salvation HE attained for us, then this mixture will bring forth a new and terrible religion of compromise, it will secure millions of souls into the grip of the last horse and rider of the apocalypse. Death followed by hell. Whole cities, and armies, will be swallowed up into the yawning gasp of the devil’ s hell. Along the lawless will be those who still believe their own kind of righteousness will award them heaven. They don’t know who they are. Zion is a distant and lofty dream. In that they have neglected a great salvation, disqualified from obtaining the full benefits of Christ’s work on the cross. The healing, and deliverance, the power of God, the Ambassadorship, and the authority.
Sweet praying CHURCH who makes herself ready, you’re the redeemed of the Lord! We are ZION we have come, already. I believe in a literal return of the Lord Jesus Christ- I believe His head quarters will be in Jerusalem, what ever that will look like, what ever that will be. We have earthly bodies, and heavenly bodies, God is redeeming the earthly body last. We still live in the body of this death; but, as Job 19:26 said “my dead body eaten of worms, will one day rise, and I will see God in my flesh! The first fruits of the dead, even Christ himself said, “I AM HE who liveth and was dead, now behold I am alive forever more! Saying, I am He who WAS, IS and IS to come …!” HE is in us, dwelling in the city of a heavenly Zion, where the Lamb is the light in us, in these earthen vessels! The Spirit of God wrote the CHURCH a love letter in Isaiah 62, while comforting His people He spoke of the Church, prophetically, so we can rise up and know we will manifest HIM in the earth for we (the Church) is that enduring CITY, individually and collectively where the LAMB IS THE LIGHT! As there will be a city with HIM in it, when HE comes! I’m not one of those who looks at the spiritual only, because we live in a material world. Jesus came in the flesh, He is here in us, and He will soon return, and we shall be changed, when He does. In fact the word says:
… beloved believe not every spirit, for every spirit that believes not that Jesus is come in the flesh is not of God 1 John 4:2-3
We are spiritual Israel the people of HIS promise grafted in! He described us in Isaiah 60, and our commissioning in Isaiah 61!!! With out revelation of that (of who God says we are) that “the CHURCH (spiritual Israel) is ZION NOW, of Isaiah 62- even the by-product, virgin posterity, maiden daughter, of the original … daughters of Zion.
Those who came from us who do not continue in the faith, but who do co-mingle in this unholy union with death, (my people perish for lack of knowledge) produce dead religious works. This is death followed by hell in its purest form. There is nothing more dead than those who refuse to continue in the truth, in what God has done through Jesus Christ! And who we are in HIM! The physical City of David is an archeological wonder, of rock and dirt. The promise of God was that David would never lack an heir sitting on the Throne Of David. When we become a Christian, Christ the root of Jesse, lion of Judah, and Judge of Israel began to reign from the throne of our hearts. Christ in us the Hope and Glory. We are the fortress of David,
When we realize we are Zion in Isaiah 62 (the Lord said, “I’ll not rest until she receives the torch of her salvation!” then we will rejoice in understanding that Isaiah 60 is us now too, saying: arise and shine For your light has come! … Christ in us the hope and glory! That Isaiah 61 is our commissioning, (the Spirit of the Lord is upon me …) the works he did shall we do also. Study these three, put your hand on your heart and say, the Lord my God dwells in Zion!
Joel 3:17 I Am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion.
Isaiah 60:14 And they shall call you The City of the Lord,
Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
Psalm 132:13 For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling!
I want to say this, it doesn’t matter who will, or who won’t rise up and come along; for many, their mind sets, and their traditions, will get in the way! They will continue to serve a defeated Christ under the ordinances of men! Never moving beyond the more elementary provisions of the law. Forever preaching on sin, because they still stumble on that stumbling block themselves. Nothing will make you clean but trusting in the power of the blood of Jesus. If we are going to camp out in one place, let us camp beside this cleansing stream.
1 Peter 2:7-9 But to those who do not believe the stone the builders rejected has become the corner stone, “A stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.” Because they do not obey His word .. But You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation …
But know this, the REMNANT has always been a straggling few, the marginalized, the disenfranchised; even as David’s band of brothers, whom knew God’s chosen, that were mighty warriors who won battles for the benefit of the reign of David. Great accomplishments for the kingdom of God will be won by those who believe in the power of Jesus Name! God reserves the most awesome battles for the smallest of armies. And has his 300 (type) in reserve; even HIS weaker vessels shall arise in this hour!
To Display His Power!
In a time when righteous judgment is needed in the land- God is calling, “Deborah, arise and go down. Bring this word to the commander of hosts …”
God used Deborah to take down the iron chariot army, that intimidated Israel, holding hostage (lands of promise) too long. These biblical and prophetic types are now IN CHRIST, and IN Christ Jesus there is no race or gender that is disqualified. Male or female Greek or Jew …. Those who rise up and join the faithful GET TO SHARE in Christ’s reward. I’m not waiting for NO ONE TO CATCH UP with me. That is the devil’s lie! Even Deborah’s Barak said, “If you go I will go.” And Barack was mentioned in the FAITH HALL OF FAME, listed as one who subdued kingdoms with the rest of God’s flawed, but faith filled valiant! He didn’t care about ego! The etymology of Deborah means BEE which is spoken as Devorah. It is the feminine form of davar, litterally meaning: Word! You see BARAK took the WORD OF THE LORD into battle with Him! So this nonsense regarding Barak being a coward is a spot and wrinkle in modern Christian teaching, needing ironed out once and for all! Barak was ORDAINED TO TAKE THE WORD OF GOD with HIM TO BAttlE, and he did so prophetically when Deborah went with him! The ancient letter of Hebrews lists him in the Faith HALL of FAME, not shame! Let me tell you God gives that kind of warrior (who insists on the WORD with HIM in every battle) the blessing of thorough and accurate resolve. This kind – even this one of biblical acclaim Captain BARAK, isn’t just any HIGH level commander, He is a true defender of the faith that went out against that dreaded army of iron. Others avoided this same people before him. Certainly the early CHURCH regarded Barak well.
To demote such a man as so many have in their sermons and commentary, who have labeled him a coward for taking a woman to battle with him, lack in understanding, and have not “searched the matter out.” Erroneously, using this as a lesson that weak men need a Deborah. When actually God was revealing his might against a powerfully strong army. It was a house wife named Jael that took down its commander!
In the song of Deborah and Barak a GENERAL OF GOD’S ARMY, (who didn’t get there by weakness by the way) sang a song that GAVE all honor and glory to The Father, it wasn’t in him to get the glory, he just wanted the VICTORY, a woman getting praise for her bravery outshined Barak’s exploits, not because He was less of a man- but because the woman who killed the captain of the opposing army, Sisera, was A WOMAN in her home serving milk! It wasn’t even Deborah who was the hero in all of this but Jael! She utterly defeated the CAPTAIN of the army of of 900 iron CHARIOTS! That was the point!! Once again to remind the Children of Israel, The Lord thy God In the midst of thee is mighty! The week shall be strong, and it will go well with those that know how to give honor to the weaker vessel, for it is through them, He reveals HIS power. God has proven over and over again the battle is not to the swift or to the strong, but the battle belongs to the Lord! When they ask you who you are tell them: I Am ZION!! As Zion is in the midst of Jerusalem, so the Lord is in the midst of His people, the Lord God, in the midst of you is mighty! CHRIST in us the Hope and glory, and we are in Him abiding. He is our head and we are HIS body! WHO is Zion, who is Jerusalem? Who is the city where the LAMB is the light? I Am, WE ARE- You can call me ZION!
Again the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying, thus said the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury. Thus said the LORD; I am returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth …
Those who trust in the LORD Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.
As Mount Zion is in the midst of Jerusalem, so the Lord is in the midst of HIS people.
Because Christ lives in us! The tabernacle of God is with men.
