LOOKING AHEAD IN 2020

PROPHETIC DIRECTION AND A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT

AND APPRECIATION TO OUR ONLINE MINISTRY FOLLOWERS.

A new phase in ministry demand a new face of engagement…

By Isaiah-Philips Akintola

This is to wish all our friends, followers and online community members a blessed and prosperous season ahead. Thank you for believing in the prophetic voice heaven has given to me. Thank you for your prayers, words of encouragement, and of course, your financial support in lifting my hands in ministry as Moses hands were lifted on the Mountain during the days of the battle of the Lord against the Amalekites. Today, we are called to engage a different type of Amalekites that requires the position of apostolic elders at the gates and on the walls of our homes, Church, and cities.

Unfortunately, many of our Elders and gatekeepers have been pressured and seduced to leave the wall and the gates to go look for food, platforms, and financial sustenance, therefore, the city has remained invaded and the church has been captured by another spirit that is teaching the Nazareth to drink wine. I appreciate the fact that you’ve been able to discipline yourself to awake in the morning in responding to the Spirit of governmental intercession and prayer.

It’s a joyful thing to begin to witness a new generation of apostolic priesthood, taking their place on behalf of their families, community, and nation.  I will encourage you to keep the fire burning on the altar; don’t let it die! We’ve begun to build a culture of apostolic governmental ordinary Saints with in-depth, prophetic sight to invade the territory of darkness even as recover all the enemy has stolen.

2020 is just around the corner and we can look back with a deep sense of appreciation to how the Lord has guided and directed our pathway. Appreciating the Lord will be an understatement to the overflowing richness of his goodness and favor over us. The year 2019 is one filled with various types of adventure that we can say has indeed led us into depths and heights of spiritual realities of the speakings and the demand of the Lord.

There are no words strong enough to capture the expression of the heart of the Father for us.  Heaven has continued to upgrade, update, and elevate our spiritual engagement to the degree of shifting our position of priestly relationship and interaction. The Lord has brought us to a new arena in his prophetic vision for the development and advancement of the mandate of the redemption of creation. We’ve touched new heights and realms in the spirit which has elevated our spiritual point of operation; our vision has become enriched even has wisdom takes us deeper into the apostolic design of the restored Ecclesia.

Personally, the year 2019 has been a great season of trial, test and maturity in walking the path of my prophetic assignment for the nation of South Africa and beyond. The prophetic mandate of the Father for my life regarding his redemptive vision for this nation and the rest of the world has become more visible and more defined in the spirit of wisdom. 2019 has allowed us to have a better picture of the reformation direction and restorational principle of the Church.

This prophetic, redemptive program has stirred the compromising sediments within the false, deceptive and lukewarm, Laodicean water that has characterized the state of the church for many seasons now. We are now seeing an open challenge and disagreements within the two order of leadership philosophy within the church.

The emerging reality of the restoration of the tabernacle of David is disrupting the political, elitism spirit of the house of Saul. I am afraid that this battle will continue deep into the seasons and years ahead, but we need to apply the spiritual character quality David exhibited until the Lord establishes his throne in Hebron.

Our apostolic mandate is to continue the reconstruction and restoration of the burnt gates and the broken wall of this nation of South Africa and the rest of the continent in the spirit of high level, intercessory, governmental [prophetic] engagement. Part of these mandate is the precise restoration and realignment of the prophetic image and identity of the people, so they can ultimately reclaim their place on the watchtower and the gates of their family, community, and cities. The more we can empower individuals and families to become priestly responsible for their allotted post, the more we are able to corporately reform, transform, and restore the nation back to her ordained position of development and prosperity.   

Friends, may I remind you again that we are deep into the days of the restoration of the Ecclesia, and to the degree we understand this, is to the level we will be resourced to function with the various restored, unique ministry callings and gifts of the ecclesia. The resources of the Lord are always released in the context of fulfilling the prophetic mandate heaven in season and time. Whatever we are doing or seek to carry out should be done within the context of the prophetic movement and demand of the Father for this season. Let’s continue to track the leading voice of the Spirit, even as we break into new spiritual territories in 2020 and the years ahead. 

Talking about the leading of the Spirit, we will be resuming Zadok prophetic leadership school of ministry for early January next year. This training promised to enhance and enrich your spiritual insight, wisdom, and capacity in making relevant decisions, especially in this season of immense deception. Allow me to wish you again a blessed holiday and a fruitful, advancing 2020.

There are many initiatives we are seeking to carry out even as we continue to prepare the way of the Lord, and I humbly pray that you will ask the Lord to speak to your heart regarding how to best support our prophetic assignment. Our platform of ministry is totally different from the conventional ones out there, hence, it’s a little challenging for people to see the need to support.

However, there are those gracious few, the Lord has stirred their hearts to lend a helping hand, and I am eternally grateful for their sacrificial care. I do hope that you will be part of the few that will respond to the voice of the Lord to encourage and support this online ministry which has begun to touch lots of lives in various parts of the world. Our online resource has become an authentic spiritual hub for many travelers and kingdom builders to find words of encouragement, comfort, direction, instruction, and even confirmation in their ministries, and we are grateful to be used in this great initiative.

Please join hands with us as we advance the will of the Lord further in 2020. May the Lord richly bless you and your family in this coming new year for his glory.

WHAT IS THE PROPHETIC IMPLICATION FOR THE DEPARTURE OF SPIRITUAL ELDER LIKE REINHARD BONNKE?

WHAT IS THE PROPHETIC IMPLICATION FOR THE

DEPARTURE OF SPIRITUAL ELDER LIKE REINHARD BONNKE?

By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

What is the meaning or spiritual implication when a spiritual (gift) personality like Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, who literally shifts the spiritual realm of an entire continent, exits the earth? What does it mean for a man who expresses humility to the core, but carries an awesome governmental authority that many of the high and mighty in the elites of ecclesiastical leadership listens to his voice? What does the departure of this kind of spiritual representative mean to the Body of Christ? These and many more critical questions, we should be asking ourselves as spiritually minded individuals and the corporate body of Christ, if indeed, we are moving towards the ultimate maturity and the finishing of all things.

More so, we’ve prophetically entered a more accelerated realm of the nearness and the impact of the kingdom of God upon the earth; many of the things happening now carries a high-level prophetic frequency and implication that we cannot afford to ignore or trivialize. 

We live in a time where it has almost become the norm to trivialize spiritual things, particularly when what is seen seem not to make sense through carnal, human understanding. Appreciation and honor are no longer defined by a deep sense of prophetic insight but through the visual lens of material possession or sensual appraisal.

The concept of engaging values by spiritual knowledge, wisdom and revelational understanding has almost become a thing of the past, especially when almost everyone now claims both intellectual and [spiritual] psychological sigh as long as they have the pulpit and altar of social media to voice the opinion or objection about any spiritual matter.

In our overt quest for information and unending knowledge, we’ve managed to raise a generation that is highly informed, but also shallow and opinionists in its expression. Many have mistaken acquired information and psychological awareness for the inflow and impartation of the Spirit of knowledge, counsel, wisdom, and understanding, which comes with the fear of God. 

The relationship between Elisha and tutorship under Elijah took Elisha beyond the realm of mere awareness. When the Sons of the prophet said to Elisha, did you know that the Lord is about to take your master from the earth today? Elisha replied, yes, I know, but hold your peace. 

The apprentice [Sons] prophets all know that Elijah was to be taken to heaven, but they did not understand the prophetic implication of what they knew. Yet, for the first time that Elisha was also very much aware of the departure of his master, but he will not allow such knowledge to distract him from the bigger picture of his prophetic assignment.      

The implication of allowing one to be submerged in the quest of seeking to know [information] without the formation of Christ in us as brought about a disease of spiritual blindness and the inability to discern movements, seasons, and divine directive. Wisdom is when we can carefully marry the vast realm of information power, we are exposed to with the virtue of humility that comes via the school of obedience in wisdom. To pursue the narrative of the 21st century of boundless information is to expose ourselves to falsehood, shallowness, and the seduction of the wisdom of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  

Tracking the prophetic implication of a man of such spiritual caliber like Reinhard Bonnke is highly necessary to see what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the Church, notably when he departed on the 7th day of the month of December. Without flogging the idea of numerology, I believe his departure, on the seventh of the last month of the year, speaks to us of several things that allow us to shift our perfective as the Church.

Furthermore, there are other prophetic shifts, directions, and implications we should consider and be keenly aware of; least we underestimate his departure as just another death that happens in the Body of Christ. The passing away of such carrier of grace, wisdom, and anointing in the redemptive, prophetic program of the Father in creation is never to be taken for granted or be just another incident of old Age death.   

The passing away of God’s prophetic vanguards in a generation means several things, including the closure of a prophetic season and the opening of another. The passing of the type of ministry leadership grace and voice should be highly noted. Elijah and Elisha are two different personalities with unique grace, but we see Elisha receiving a double portion of the anointing upon the life of Elisha.

The anointing is God’s prophetic voice that allows certain things to be done on behalf of the kingdom of God, especially in the objective of redemption. There are certain individuals the Lord had developed and matured in the spiritual ranking to the degree that they have been entrusted with a specific position of influence as Eldership and governmental authority at the gates of nations and continents.

Such an individual has is not just limited to how we conventionally see their gifts; these individuals have become a prince over global affairs as we see them in the book of Daniel. They’ve been shifted and positioned in the realm of spiritual administration in order to advance and execute the judgment of God in the earth. The problem of generalization of grace, gifts, and ministry office due to the abuse of charisma and leadership position has aggravated our spiritual blindness and the lack of honor in the Body of Christ.

As we begin to exit the day of Saul’s type of leadership towards the restoration of the tabernacle of David, one of the things we must learn fast is the ministry of sighting and honoring faithful Elders at the gates. The scripture speaks about 24 Elders that surround the throne of the Father and not 24 gifts.

When our gift matures into the realm of Eldership, we’ve entered into the sphere of governmental authority that can be used to shift times and seasons according to the calendar of heaven, and I firmly believe that Reinhard Bonnke functioned in this capacity even as Evangelist.

There’s no single part of the ascended ministry that is lower and less in quality than another, even though they function in accordance with divine order. Ranking in the ministry gifts is a personal reward of how we respond to the unique dealings of the Father.

 The Father is the one who defines our level of obedience to and reward. It is said of our Lord Jesus Christ; this day I have begotten you as a Son.  Sonship is the place where we come to in the Spirit of obedience that enhances our gifts to function in a governmental capacity. Meaning, we function in our ascended gift from various levels of spiritual authority.

When we are keenly sighted and knowledgeable and spiritual things, we are open to receive the required training that allows us to receive and function within certain leadership, administrative Spirit that engages the operations of spiritual darkness over realms, cities, and nations.

People like Reinhard Bonnke though functioned as an Evangelist but carried a much mature, governmental influence in the prophetic activity of God in the earth and within the leadership of the Body of Christ. The way the Father used this great servant to awake and further push the prophetic agenda of the Lord of the can only be seen and measured by those who have been spiritually aware.

The inability to acutely reorganize elders and kingdom accessing point [gates of authority] beyond just a functional gift or even office is one of the main weaknesses of the present spiritual knowledge of the many in the Body of Christ, and worst still, amongst professors of the current apostolic initiatives.
