Revisiting Vantage Point 2014
As in life, from where we STAND is the vantage point from where we see. For those rooted in the WORD of LIFE our vantage point should be different from the worlds view, for we are in Christ. That is why the scripture in Isaiah 8:12 fits us in this day of age like no other- Do not call conspiracy what these people call conspiracy, do not fear what they fear, nor dread what they dread. For those who have listened to the pod cast, you know the word the Lord gave me was called VANTAGE POINT 2014. The Holy Spirit said to me, “It is all there, nothing is to be added, nothing to take away.” The end-times are in the books of the prophets, it’s in Daniel, and the book of Revelation, to name just two. The Lord said, “Understanding is what my people need.”
We cannot see the CHURCH’S place In end-time ministry until we KNOW who we are. From the vantage point of a healthy identity, we will see through the SPIRIT of UNDERSTANDING our roll in the scheme of things. Part of the end time AWAKENING, has to do with our understanding of the end-times.
The Spirit of understanding (Hebrew) from [a primitive root] biyn, means to attain a wise/skilled/ or prudent view. UNDERSTANDING is one of the seven SPIRITS of God (we talk about this more in the podcast) that rest upon Yeshuah.
New King James Version (NKJV)
2 The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might,
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.
As the church matures in Christ the fullness of the SPIRIT of the LORD shall come upon us as we exercise unity (abiding with in a bond as it were- huddling). UNITY is not a natural work, it is not gathering denominations together for a convention, it is the realization of one body, and one Spirit, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, in one GOD and Father of all, who is above, through, and in us all. Yet, we are unique in our call, understanding these things, helps us in our endeavors to keep the unity of the spirit, in the bond of peace. Forbearing one another in love.
Christ HIMSELF is the fullness of the Godhead Bodily, as He is so are we in the world, therefore as we mature in the HEAD in the spirit of unity, this fullness comes. IN THIS we fulfill our destiny in CHRIST.
Psalm 133:1 Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity, it is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down on the beard, even Aaron’s beard, that went down [pooling as it were] in the folds [and over the bells and tassels] of His Garment.
Notice how the anointing flows down to the feet and is dispersed where ever the priest may walk, consecrating the ground as holy? For the priestly garment sets the priest apart, even as it is engraved upon his medallion “SET APART as HOLY UNTO the LORD.” This is how the Kingdoms of this world will become the KINGDOMS OF OUR GOD. This acquired Holy ground is the redemptive work of Christ through the fruit of the full disclosure of the Godhead’s instruction to every cell of the body, functioning as one whole, this can only come through the spirit of Grace and unity, for this priestly anointing then is “uniformly” able to disperse from the head to the toe, seamlessly, flowing undaunted, pooling, where ever the priesthood stands.
We are to display the manifold wisdom of God, to the principalities and powers, in this completed administration of THE ANOINTING, of God. The fivefold ministry fades in comparison, of the fruit it is to produce. Being that these giftings and graces are a means to an end, that we mature in what we shall be, we know not now what that is, but we know this one thing, that in HIS APPEARING, we shall be like Him. So by faith, by being renewed in the spirit of our mind, we can put off the old
man which is death .. we become joint heirs in CHRIST, having the mind of Christ, being transformed in His image.
New American Standard Bible (NASB) [Paul] … of which I was made a minister, according to the gift of God’s grace which was given to me according to the working of His power. To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the
Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things; so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places. This was in accordance with the eternal purpose which He carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord …
Even now the Church is progressing, as the bride is making herself ready. She subjects herself to intervals of preparation and purification; where impurities are bathed away, in the washing of His WORD. The Spirit of The Lord anointing her with the fragrances of Christ. Through appointments, and anointments, prophetic rehearsals, kingdom dispersals, Holy emissaries in distant lands (from where the kingdom now stands) is even now earnestly seeking precious lively stones, yet discovered, in the quarries of the earth …
In the weeks and months ahead of us, new realizations, and the unravelling of presumptive application to end time prophecy, will rock the world of those whose life long view was from another vantage point, other than in CHRIST. For the Church to remain steady in Christ, we must not take our eyes off of Him, nor our focus from the vantage point he has given us, which is a non reliance upon that which we see with our natural eyes, but a full reliance upon the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, Who Leads us and GUIDES US INTO ALL TRUTH.
If you have not listened to the entire pod cast, there are two areas that I feel are absolutely critical that we cover to prepare us for the days ahead, in order NOT to get side tracked in a time where the love of many shall wax cold. These two areas are foundational, and imperative to a successful start, and restart in Kingdom living, now and beyond. For ministry in these 2 crucial areas, please refer to the pod cast. All of you, have a BLESSED NEW YEAR! In Christ. -dee barnes

Isaiah and His Children as Signs
11 This is what the Lord says to me with his strong hand upon me,
warning me not to follow the way of this people:
12 “Do not call conspiracy
everything this people calls a conspiracy;
do not fear what they fear,
and do not dread it.
13 The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy,
he is the one you are to fear,
he is the one you are to dread.
14 He will be a holy place;
for both Israel and Judah he will be
a stone that causes people to stumble
and a rock that makes them fall.
And for the people of Jerusalem he will be
a trap and a snare.
15 Many of them will stumble;
they will fall and be broken,
they will be snared and captured.”
16 Bind up this testimony of warning
and seal up God’s instruction among my disciples.
17 I will wait for the Lord,
who is hiding his face from the descendants of Jacob.
I will put my trust in him.
18 Here am I, and the children the Lord has given me. We are signs
and symbols in Israel from the Lord Almighty, who dwells on Mount
