Making sense of this new spiritual season
By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola
There are dimensions of spiritual truths and realities coming into focus in this hour that can only be understood and practically applied through the various prisms of spiritual sight and understanding. Since interpretation of spiritual [things] realities are often regulated by the various levels of revelatory insight, wisdom and maturity, we are thus expected to precisely understand the kingdom required standard for us to measure up to at every stage of our growth, maturity, and transition.
Yes, we do know that our lord Jesus Christ is the perfect measurement standard for our ultimate maturity, but then, the fullness of Christ is hidden within the various revelatory dimension of grace and truth locked up within men and women whose lives model the pathway to that place of Christ fullness. For instance, there must be a coming into the operating value system of Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Esther, Joseph, Elijah, David, and so on.
There are highly effective, powerful, kingdom truth and value system within the lives of these men and women that must be triggered within our own spirit in order to come into the confluence of the nature and glory of Christ stature.
These are not just old testament heroes as religious spirit will have us believe. These individuals are divine technology that enables us to journey beyond the walls of religion and false humanist philosophy into the very operational life of true kingdom lifestyle.
In our movement to Zion, the place of perfection, we must carefully monitor the various process mechanisms and seasons of development as we journey further towards that point of perfection in Christ.
We must know and be able to articulate the measuring yardstick of the father for each new season of our lives, such that when we reach the zenith of such season, we can easily transit into the next order of the life without struggling as the case seem to be with many of us today. For we have not a permanent city, must we are seeking that which is to appear in Christ. Looking for some kind of permanent structure of existence here without transitioning into our inheritance in Christ is the mistaken decision anyone can make.
The opening of a new season of truth ushers in new dimensions of spiritual emphasis and realities that must enhance our former position of knowledge and grace as we forge ahead into the next level of maturity.
The challenge is, if what was embraced or believe in the past does not represent the counsel and order of truth, we will suffer a great challenge moving on with the Lord to his next level of spiritual demand. What we’ve experienced and even celebrated as a position of an ascended light from one dimension of truth will now be tried and tested with the pressing in of a new and a higher position of kingdom truth being ushered into our various realms of existence.
Every operating system of our existence will be challenged and scrutinized if they actually meet the required standard of engagement in this new day of the Lord. Nothing will be left out to assumption. Every aspect of our believe philosophy will be brought under the scrutiny light of the divine standard.
All that we’ve built in the former position of a celebrated light of truth that doesn’t reflect the full image structure of Christ that is required for development for such season will be adequately refined, adjusted, or even discarded to make way for the most excellent representation of such truth to be properly understood and well seated within the structure of our existence as the body of Christ.
Our former positions of thirty and sixty-fold of spiritual knowledge or wisdom now need to be calibrated as we approach the borderline of the kingdom age. A new day of the lord is surely before us, and it’s beginning to make demands that are not easy, and we must respond with the right attitude of faith and trust.
The capability to press into the required confluence of equalized truth within our immediate family, region or nation, demands that every member of the ecclesia is thoroughly furnished and equipped with the right kingdom template and structure of what defines the house of God and life in the kingdom.
The spiritual competence that is capable to precisely absorb, and process the current weight of governmental response to the challenge of this season will be one whose prophetic spirit has been seasoned and processed through seasons of divine refinement and maturity.
Those who have allowed themselves to be adequately taught and (discipled) mentored through the ministry hand of the potters in shaping them into his preferred, designed order in the school of the revelation of Christ will be those whom heaven will be releasing to take their rightful place at the gates of apostolic succession at the gate of representation before the nations.
To these individuals, the prophetic or the apostolic ascended ministry has changed from a gift based understanding, or a titled driven mentality to a well, developed, matured, operating DNA of their restored identity and culture in Christ.
We are now moving beyond the emphasis of a gift to an origin of life, designed to redeem, reform, transform, and ultimately restore creation back to its ordained place in the father. Such position of orientation will fast track the coming of our lord and savior back to this planet without delay. Behold, the former order of perceiving and engaging what we know as the ministry has drastically changed for good. New wine now requires a new wine skin of orientation. Can you see this?
