When Son's Of God War Within

By Undrai Fizer

Isn't it something that the Father would encourage love among the brethren? It's by our love and interdependence of one another, that we will know that we have passed from death to life, I John 3:14. It's not just our love for the lost, but also our love for those who have been found.

That is why some of our efforts in reaching out to the lost can become burdensome and an obligatory feeling, instead of joy and zeal. If there is no love and trust among the brethren, there can be no real love for the lost. The brethren are just "the former lost," and the lost are just "brethren to be." By our love for one another, our seal of fellowship and sonship, will be manifested.

The enemy and immaturity has caused us to be enemies within for so long. Haters and despisers of one another. Liars against one another and apprehensive of one another. It has created a false sense of holiness within us, to the point where we may feel that we "personally," can cause no offense. We are always the "offended" it seems. The rulers of darkness know that when the sons of God fight among themselves, there is something crazy going on in the "tabernacle." By love for one another, the transference of life is seen and experienced.

We may love one another's style or expression of ministry. But do we ache for one another's well being? Do we really miss one another? Or do we love only those who love us. Christ, our Elder Brother, said our holiness must exceed the holiness of the Pharisee. It is nothing, He said, to love those who only love us. We seem to give this space to the lost, but in the family of God, we may find ourselves losing this mercy. We can be long-suffering toward the lost, but can keep the "brethren" on a short leash. I am not talking about "abusive, manipulative, 'Christian" relationships (I question that type of "relationship). I'm talking about the daily life of fellowship among the believer and the kingdom's causes. I'm speaking of apprehensiveness between the brethren.

There are some of us brethren who will not speak to one another or look at one another. There are some of us that have that "discernment" working. You know, that "feeling" on the inside. "There's something wrong with 'so and so." "I can just feel it." And then we wait to see the manifestation of our suspicions. Has anyone ever been suspicious of "you." What answer did you give them when they "discerned" wrongly. I guess we are all right in our own eyes, huh? I guess so.

The kingdom of God cannot advance when the sons of God fight within. The manifestation of the sons of God will be hindered in us, if we continue to war within. Bitterness and unforgiveness will remain the enemy of the family of God and His advancement. It's a feeling that we and our memories control. What do you think?

Sifting and Shifting

by Linda Mills

I am 'sifting' and 'shifting' things in the spiritual realm as well as the physical. There will come a huge 'quake' of major proportions in the spiritual realm. There will be major 'shifts' among the five-fold ministry. My priority will be the placing of distinctive voices that are to be heard in the last hour. Some will be 'shifted' into higher roles who are already in high profile. Some will be 'sifted' out to bring about a 'shift' for a clearer definition of the voice that is to be heard.

The 'shifted' are not to be exalted and the 'sifted' are not to be rejected. Each one will receive the reward from my own hand in accordance to their obedience which is highly valued by me.

The 'shiftings' and the 'siftings' will continue in the "spiritual" or heavenly realms; on the earthly realm or natural realm of world reknown leadership. The 'shifting' will continue in the earth's structure as my 'quakes' touch the heavenly and the natural realm.

These are noticeable activities, some of which will be openly shown to the world, others which can only be discerned by my Spirit.

* Mt.20:1-16 - Jesus tells of the laborer's in the vineyard receiving the same pay even though some had only worked one hour. Our labor in the Lord's vineyard is accounted according to His will, not according to how much we have done. It all depends on our obedience to His instructions, great or small.

This word came to me shortly after reading of the earthquake in Peru measuring 7:9 and the volcano eruption of Mt. Mayon in the Phillipines.

In the Whirlwind

by Ras Robinson

I will visit whirlwinds upon the earth very soon. You will see them and not be afraid. Other will see and fear will grip their souls. This will be a testing of hearts. I have prepared you for this hour that is soon coming. You are not to be afraid.

And even as you see the heads of the wheat taken away I have already made abundant provision for you. Thus you are not to worry nor fret. You are in my hands. The whirlwind that will directly affect you will be one that takes you to a higher level.

I am bringing you to the next level, I am bringing you higher. Don't miss it through disobedience. So when the whirlwind comes and you see it be neither sad nor frightened but rejoice instead. For I am in the whirlwind and will be using it.

During the whirlwind I will be speaking to you. Listen for my voice. For I am taking you to this next level as an intercession for the earth. Across the world I am moving but I am about to move very fast. Your main assignment when you reach the next level will be to hear my still and quiet voice in the midst of the whirlwind and then to intercede what you hear.

Soon thereafter, you will add to your intercession proclamation. You will put the trumpet to your lips and speak to the nations! During this time, this special time, it is imperative that you obey me with pinpoint obedience and accuracy. I will visit whirlwinds upon the earth very soon. Be bold and very strong.

2 Kings 2:11 "Then it came about as they were going along and talking, that behold, there appeared a chariot of fire and horses of fire which separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind to heaven."

Job 38:1 "Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind."

The Trumpet

Arlette Pollard

The trumpet has blown, My people have been awakened and I am now calling you to rise up into the freedom of a new day. Old things have passed away and My glory now fills the tabernacle of your life. Step into the abundant life that was given you the day you received My breath into your life. Into an exceedingly rich life full of My revelation. For by My Spirit you were born and by My Spirit will I lead you.

There is no time to turn back into the things of the world. Cast aside vain imaginations that take you from the fellowship of My presence. I have warned you that the enemy has come to steal, kill and destroy - so refuse to listen his song any longer. No matter how beautiful it sounds to your ears. Now is the time that My breath of wisdom is blowing anew into your lives and I have given you the ability to discern the song of My truth from the song of the destroyer. My song that brings victory from the song that brings destruction. Now is the time for you to also realize that I have placed a song within you that is to be sung loud and clear. It is a song that will bring healing and revival back into the hearts of those who have grown weary in battle. To renew fellow warriors who have felt that they have been walking in a valley so deep that they would not able to climb, handle one more mountain set before them.

Do not despair, My faithful warriors, those who have walked in the valley of destruction will now see that I am filling their deepest valleys with My spirit. Within My spirit you will be able to rise to the highest heights without fear or despair. There will be no more valley of destruction as you enter into My presence. The life I bring you will produce a truth so powerful, so strengthening to your bones - that where once were cliffs to high to climb - troubles as steep as sheer cliff's, will now become level plains with which you will walk easily. Move swiftly into My Spirit and I will fill this deep valley with the clear, clean water of My presence. Rise up completely into My Spirit and see that I have you told you the truth that by faith you will say to this mountain, be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea, it shall be done. By faith you will continue to walk upon the water covering all mountains that you allowed to overcome you in the past. The victory is assured as you continue to live in My presence. Victory to sing with all creation - that worthy is the Lamb that was slain.

"Arise, shine; for thy light has come. The glory of the Lord is risen up thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee." Isaiah 60:1-2

This is the day that the trumpet has sounded - shine forth the light I have placed within you. Proclaim freedom to the captives. Let your rejoicing be heard upon all the earth. Then will strangers seek you out and together there will rejoicing in the house that I have built.

Blessings
Arlette

Head out into the, for I have set you free.

The Heart of Mephibosheth

Deborah Voetberg

There is a great lesson to be learned from Mephibosheth for the body of Christ. When David went looking for Mephibosheth he found him in Lo Debar which translates = 'wilderness'. Mephibosheth had no knowledge of the covenant David had made with his father Jonathan. But He was curious about God. He even named his son Micha which translates = 'Who is like Jah?' Mephibosheth was found in the house of Machir = salesman, a wealthy businessman, the son of Ammiel = people of God. So Mephibosheth was comfortable among the wealthy people of God, but lacked fellowship with his God. His physical needs were met but his spirit dwelt in the wilderness.

David restored to Mephibosheth all that had belonged to his grandfather Saul and his house. David put Ziba and his sons in charge of tending to Mephibosheth's land and brought him to his own table to eat as one of his own sons. We learn later as David is betrayed by his son Absalom and flees for safety, that Ziba betrays Mephibosheth. And here is where Mephibosheth' s heart is revealed.

2 Sam 19:24.
Now Mephibosheth the son of Saul came down to meet the king. And he had not cared for his feet, nor trimmed his mustache, nor washed his clothes, from the day the king departed until the day he returned in peace. 2 Sam 19:28.
"For all my father's house were but dead men before my lord the king. Yet you set your servant among those who eat at your own table. Therefore what right have I still to cry out anymore to the king?"

2 Sam 19:30.
Then Mephibosheth said to the king, "Rather, let him take it all, inasmuch as my lord the king has come back in peace to his own house."

David had asked in 2 Samuel 9:3 . "Is there not still someone of the house of Saul, to whom I may show the kindness of God?" David sought him out and restored him to the king's table. Verse 13."So Mephibosheth dwelt in Jerusalem, for he ate continually at the king's table. And he was lame in both his feet." He was lame in both his feet and could offer no help in the running of David's kingdom. But David had not sought him out for his talents and abilities, but because of the covenant he had made with his father Jonathan.

We as the children of God, are brought back to the King's table because of the covenant the King made with Abraham. The Spirit of God searches us out to show His kindness and brings us into His kingdom when our feet are lame, and we have nothing to offer Him. No talent or ability apart from the breath of God is able to add anything to His kingdom. Of ourselves we can do nothing! We have been brought to the King's table for fellowship with Him! He desires to look into our face and see the covenant that came from His relationship with Abraham. Just as David loved to look into Mephibosheth's face and see his beloved Jonathan.

Mephibosheth's name means = to blow away ( scatter ) confusion & shame from idols! He was able to receive from David for he recognized his redeemer. Nothing stood in his way of giving his heart to serve David all of his life. The idol of pride by being Saul's rightful heir was blown away, along with the confusion and shame of being lame and having nothing to offer his king. Mephibosheth honored David with his life and never forgot to whom his life belonged.

We must always remember, that our life has been purchased because of a covenant made thousand of years ago. We have been redeemed and brought to sup at the King's table daily for fellowship. We have nothing to offer his kingdom, but He seeks our fellowship and love just the same. When Mephibosheth was betrayed by his servant Ziba, it did not distract him from mourning the loss and exile of his king. He continued to seek his God until his king was restored back to his kingdom in peace!

It is time for all of us to remember to whom we belong. Who has redeemed us. In whose kingdom we serve. It is time to blow away confusion and shame from idols and take our place at His table. It is time to stop trying to perform and conspire for a better place at the table, and just rejoice that we have been found and restored. Love and honor your King until He has returned in peace to take His rightful place. Have the heart of Mephibosheth that was consumed only with the matters that were on the heart of his king!

Great Grace!

Destiny Being Formed In You

Bill Burns

Are you not the Gideon's that I am calling forth from the winepress, from the beaten down place? Are you not the glorious ones that I am calling forth in this hour to defeat the works of the enemy, and has it not been spoken and prophesied that you would rule in the midst of your enemies? I say, this is the day of glory; it is the day of victory. I see a people strong. I see a people being set in battle array. I see a people casting off the works of darkness. I see a people shaking off the dust of rejection, the dust of fear, the dust of everything that has been put on them by the words of the enemy. I see a people coming strong and set in battle array, the like of whom has never been. I see a people running against the enemy. I see a people marching in unison.

Come in faith; come knowing that I have called you; come knowing that who I have called I will equip. Those I equip I will preserve and protect. I will lead you forth out of the valley of destruction. I am bringing you to a high place. It is not the high places of Baal worship; it is not the high place that man has elevated himself to; it is the high place of My presence, the place of My glory. I am calling you to come to this mountain, Zion, through the gates of the city. Come into My holy presence, for you shall learn that from this moment on there is an abiding glory which is given for you to dwell in.

Destiny is being formed in you. I have placed in you words of destiny and now I am drawing them back out by My own power and by My own presence. This is a time of acceleration where all things shall be fulfilled, for these are the days of restoration. I am building the Tabernacle of David. These are the days when the mighty ones are coming forth. They are coming forth in faith. Can you hear the sound of the marching of the army? Can you hear the beat of My drum? Can you hear My calling to you? It is not only a calling, but it is a sending. It is a calling forth and a sending out. Begin to watch for opportunities in the highways and in the byways. Search to the left; search to the right. Awaken when I call you, and speak to the north, the south, the east and the west, and say, "Come! Come into the kingdom of God." I am equipping you and as soon as you begin to speak forth by faith that which I have put in you, you are going to see astounding things. Eye has not seen, and ear has not heard of the glorious things that I am about to do. Yes, you are but flesh and blood, but when I cover you with My divinity, when My Spirit comes upon you, then you become the golden vessels that I have saved for the end of the age. The word of My power declares that the temple at the end of the age will be greater than the former. You, My people, are that temple. Let faith arise in your hearts. Let the word of power be found in your mouth.

I say, do not again bow to the enemy! It is the hour of victory and the hour of My power in which I will equip you to rule in the midst of all of your enemies. Arise and take the authority which I have given you and carry it into every place you go. Establish My authority by My presence, atmosphere and power, for it is My desire to establish you as a messenger of the Most High in these days. Will you not carry forth My glory? Will you not come forth? Arise and shine for your hour has come. This is the Day of the Lord. Come forth as the sons of the Living God. Be equipped by My anointing. Allow Me to touch you, to lift you, to move you into the Holy Place. It is the Seventh Day, My people, and the veil has been removed. Come forth, I say, into the Holy of Holies. Come and join with the angels and let your cry by Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty.
