LIVING BY DIVINE INTENTION.
LIVING BY DIVINE INTENTION.
A biblical, prophetic perspective of living a fulfilled successful life.
by Isaiah-Phillips Akintola
And every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. 5 Now Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house, testifying to what would be spoken later.…
It is clear that our position of understanding and interpretation of our called assignment needs an update and upgrade to the current apostolic demand of the Third-Day kingdom initiative, particularly if we must effectively function and breakthrough within the godless environment of the 21st century society.
The degree of deception we face today is so advanced that if our sense of truth is not aligned with Christ and the eternal objective for his ecclesia, we will fall into the trap of the deceiver. Hence, we need to allow the Holy Spirit to re-engineer the entire structure and philosophy of our spirituality.
2023 will lay for us another aspect or layer of truth we need to reclaim as members of the Body of Christ, called visionary watchmen, waiting for the return of the Lord. The Lord spoke and dealt with us in 2022 from a position of a shepherd with his rod and staff, and we believe He is not done speaking and dealing with us from this order of leadership spirit.
However, we believe the coming year will even be more profound in the instructions and prophetic guidelines, which will further push us towards that frontier of his ultimate appearance.
2023 will be a period in time when we must enter certain doors and frontiers opened for us, according to Revelation chapter 3. One of these open doors is connected to the spirit and leadership character of one of the most exemplary visionary leaders ever lived.
David is a divine pattern the Lord is drawing our attention to as a key to entering and benefiting from what is behind the door. The Lord desires to give us what is known as the key of David, so that we can fully access the next order of life prepared for us.
However, we need to readjust our hearts so that we can see and connect to the Spirit of truth again. Living through a divine order will require us to return to the place of the calibration or correction of our individual and corporate kingdom vision.
We must now correct the mistake of placing purpose before a true sense of vision. We need to learn from the past and the mistakes of those who have gone ahead of us. Therefore, I strongly believe the Lord will have us look at matters of vision, purpose, and focus as a matter of urgency that should assist to be keenly ready for the season before us.
Today, we live in an age where we are constantly bombarded with distractions, more so than at any other point in human history. This distraction is often ignorantly assumed as doing something meaningful and purposeful, especially when there’s a form of money or reward attached.
So many believers have been lied to and deceived by the enemy throughout history, who have sought to preoccupy them with assignments and agendas that only seek to promote the building of Egyptian pyramids, and the towers of Babel, in the name of some so-called ministry or even kingdom initiatives.
In my view, these pursuits have continued to weaken the understanding of the essence and purpose of our existence. This is a powerful scheme of the enemy to lure folks from seeking to know and fulfill God’s prophetic counsel.
We exist in a time where there are so many purposeful ideas and ideals that do not necessarily connect us to God‘s divine order and purpose for life. We have to be careful in this season that we do not get caught up in some strange ideas and philosophy in the name of seeking relevance that are not connected to the Father’s ordained design and counsel for our lives. We must return to finding what is known as the ancient path, and walk in it so we may find rest for our soul.
The goal of living by divine intention is to restore every part of our being into realignment with the original plan that the Father had for us in Christ. Living our lives with a defined and regularly refined intention means finding and fulfilling God‘s dream and vision for us as members of the body of Christ, and this is a powerful governmental means of advancing the Father’s intention for the ecclesia and the nations.
THE THREEFOLD CORDS OF PROPHETIC MANDATE
And though one may be overpowered, two can resist. Moreover, a cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
A THREEFOLD CORD IS NOT EASILY BROKEN. AND THESE CORDS CAN BE DESCRIBED AS VISION, PURPOSE, AND FOCUS.
THESE THREE ARE THE CHIEF MAIN REASON WHY THE ENEMY ATTACKS A PERSON, FAMILY, COMMUNITY, OR A NATION.
Building a strong, Christ focus, kingdom advancement society is not a one-time work, but a continual reflection and a realignment on the biblical blueprint and apostolic values ad traditions laid down for the Saints.
We are informed to build according to the prophetic visionary blueprint shown to us on the mountain, the place of vision conception. The mountain is the place where we get to meet with God, who gives us the divine design and wisdom to build and advance his intentions for us according to their due season.
The value of regularly revisiting this concept of realigning and upscaling our understanding of God’s dream and vision for us is not something new but an old apostolic tradition we saw practiced by brother Paul and other apostolic Fathers according to the book of Acts.
Paul voiced his apprehension to the Church of Corinth regarding them being deceived by the enemy, who seeks to lure the Church from God’s dream for them.
Hence, Paul will regularly visit the brethren across the various provinces they had formally visited, and established house churches and kingdom communities to provide leadership and doctrinal support for young converts, and of course, the mutual development and integration of the eldership community of the Saints.
2 Corinthians 11: 3 I am afraid, however, that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may be led astray from your simple and pure devotion to Christ.
4 For if someone comes and proclaims a Jesus other than the One we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit than the One you received, or a different gospel than the one you accepted, you put up with it way too easily.…
Today’s Body of Christ also need to regularly look back to certain basics that define the solidity of our redemptive and visionary foundation and framework in the building up of the house of God and other kingdom initiatives, especially in this hour of deception and the great fall away.
We are again encouraged to review and seek a proper understanding of what biblical vision is, and means to us as the Body of Christ, even as we enter a new spiritual frontier that is laying the highway for the final advent of the ecclesia.
More than ever before, the nearness of the kingdom of God is altering and disrupting all forms of human system and philosophy. We cannot afford to build or run with some form of purpose that is not solidly designed on the correct prophetic, governmental blueprint of heaven’s visionary agenda.
One of the reasons we regularly need to review and revisit subjects like this is that we live in a very toxic and divisive environment, unfortunately, even amongst members of the Body of Christ.
It is no longer a news that many of the things we call Christianity today, or being built in the name of the Lord and his kingdom are fraudulent and totally Farfetched from the divine order and blueprints heaven intended for his ecclesia.
