For at least 25 years, we have heard it preached and prophesied with increasing intensity, that the Church must get serious about Unity in the Church. Another consistent and urgent message has been the call to be prepared for “the great end-time harvest.” Both are essential to the timing of the return of Christ. But…” how will we ever achieve Unity in the Body, or the fulfillment of the great harvest? How can we do that?” We have prayed, preached, prophesied, held seminars, and otherwise used all our man-developed methods to prepare and produce the longed-for Unity and Harvest. Perhaps we will see more clearly from heaven’s perspective.
“Prepare the way of the Lord…again! Think, pray, and write what I reveal to you about that calling!” Almost immediately, the Lord began to reveal more. “Heaven is invading earth, and those who have ears to hear, are already being personally transformed into the Kingdom life-style of, “…on earth, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.” But, there is coming a sound that will be heard in the Church, around the world! Just think of it, in every city, town, village, and hamlet, in every nation large and small, they will hear ‘a sound from heaven like a roar of mighty ocean waves or rolling thunder…’ simultaneously!”(Revelation 14:2,3,6) Very much like, “Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty wind storm and it filled the house where they were sitting.”(Acts 2:2 NLT) But this one will be louder, and it will fill the whole earth with the sound of heaven, reintroducing the Church to the Holy Spirit of God!! In the first introduction of the Holy Spirit, He led those first Christians to become “…members of God’s family…and that together, they were now God’s house, built on the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets …! (Ephesians 2: 19-22 NLT) This dramatic, world- wide reintroduction of the Holy Spirit, will be just “… the right time to bring everything together under the authority of Christ – everything, in heaven and on earth.” (Ephesians 1:10 NLT) Indeed, “He must remain in heaven until the time for the final restoration of all things, as God promised long ago through His Holy Prophets.” (Acts 3: 21 NLT)
The Holy Spirit will establish the new and final edition of the Apostolic/Prophetic Kingdom Church order and evidential life-style He intended for His Church from before the beginning. He will release His glorious Presence, Power, and Authority to the Apostles and Prophets to work together as one with Him to establish, maintain and sustain the Kingdom Church in the image of God! The truth is that is the only atmosphere and infrastructure within which Jesus’ passionate prayer “…I give Myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth…I pray they will all be one just as you and I are one…so that the world will believe you sent me,” will be completely fulfilled. (John 17: 19, 21NLT) The Kingdom Church’s Maturity, and resultant Unity, will powerfully activate the fulfillment of bringing in “ the great end-time harvest.” The glorious influx of new Christians into the Church around the world, will create a heaven on earth atmosphere in the world through the powerful ministry of the Holy Spirit. The Kingdom Church will once more lead the world with great blessing and honor. The seven mountains of society, Spiritual life, Family life, Government, Education, Business, Media, and Entertainment, will be transformed into Kingdom success under the exceptional Kingdom Leadership the Holy Spirit appoints. The restoration of all things will be in full swing!
Cataclysmic is a drastic word! But that is the exact word the Holy Spirit used to describe a very difficult aspect of both the restoration and reformation process. Upon the founding and immediate successful establishment of the new Kingdom Church, operating under the anointing and obvious Presence and Power of the Holy Spirit, a cataclysmic clash of churches will begin. At the root of it all, will be the dominance of the spirit of deception, encouraging self-centered false accusations, rumors, dishonesty, and jealousy against the Kingdom Church! As hungry people from other local Churches are genuinely born of the Spirit, and the Churches they leave begin to close, tensions will rise among the previously popular, culture centered Churches. Especially when commonly recognized “Evangelical, Charismatic, and Pentecostal” Churches begin to feel the strong convicting power of the Holy Spirit about matters of self and self-centered motives, and their inner secrets begin to be exposed, the sparks of gossip will flare up into a word battle that will delight Hell! Though tragic, this public, divinely orchestrated separation, will be necessary to identify the only Church God accepts. He designed and built one Church (Ephesians 4: 2-6) We designed “churches” and endeavored to explain it away with “many local churches and expressions, but one Church!” Each church built and established to do good things in His Name for their own names sake! However, the Kingdom Church will restore God’s original ONE Church “…on earth, as it is in heaven.” The clash will ultimately be, flesh warring against the Holy Spirit, with the Holy Spirit prevailing victoriously.
Make no mistake! The Apostolic/Prophetic Kingdom Church order and life-style will reestablish the Father’s ultimate intention to possess on earth, a Holy church and redeemed world, finally and totally prepared for His return. The Kingdom Church will bear no resemblance to the present illustrations of the earth-bound church! It will carry no identification signs of compromise with anything or anyone that bears the evidence of “man-made” and/or man- centered ! Oh No! It will look like, act like, and talk like Christ, Who lives in each one and , therefore is the image of the whole Body! Their vocation will be “…the simplicity and devotion to Jesus,” and together, bringing in the astounding end-time harvest. Their avocation will be anything related to their own personal needs. A clear description of this Kingdom Church, please read; Ephesians 4: 2-6; 11-16; 5: 21-33 ! This is much more than mere reformation. It is RE – FORMATION!! A totally “other than” existence. Designed and built in the heart of the Consuming Love of THE FATHER, Whose Ultimate Intention has been to have a Holy Bride, expressed in a vast, Holy Family unto Himself, Forever!
“Prepare the way of the Lord”… Again! Leaders and Saints of the present example of the Apostolic/ Prophetic Kingdom Church order and life-style, we must be active in preparing this present Church for the Return of this restored Kingdom Church. Give them understanding and responsiveness to the Holy Spirit… Now! Teach them that all things in the Holy Spirit, are born in the intensity of a life-style of Prayer, Prophecy, and Prayer… personal and corporate. Teach them how to live, move, and have their being in the life of the Holy Spirit, and become a living expression of this Kingdom of God way of living. Teach them how to consciously live all day, in the presence of the Holy Spirit of God. Teach them how this life-style in/of the Holy Spirit will release from their innermost being, rivers of living waters, from which others will drink of this glorious Kingdom life!!!
