TRACKING THE CURRENT POSITION OF THE CHURCH IN

THE UTILIZATION OF THE PRESENT INTERNET

TECHNOLOGY AS WE CELEBRATE 500 YEARS OF

MARTIN LUTHER REFORMATION AND

THE PRINTING PRESS TECHNOLOGY

By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

 

Conclusion….

In the past ten years or so, we have seen what some leaders referred to as ‘rebellion’ in the church, in the sense that many of their flocks now have open access to express their own view and experience of faith and spiritual encounters without necessarily standing behind a church pulpit, or some form of formal church gatherings.

And the fact is, most of these folks who now have internet access to utilize the medium of YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and other social media platforms might never have had the opportunity to be given the mic to share their experience and testimony of their spiritual dealings and walk with Christ because they are seen as spiritually unworthy enough to share the front role stage of the church with some of the ‘most spiritual’, and highly influential rich folks.

The world of internet and social media like your WhatsApp, Facebook, and YouTube has not only given the opportunity for everyone to express themselves, and learn something new, but has also given everyone the platform to become a voice, and of cause, hear the voice of everyone, regardless of their spiritual background and orientation.

REFORMATION AND THE HARLOT SYSTEM

Few days ago, the church and the nations celebrated 500 years of Martin Luther reformation. There’s no doubt that the turning-point of that reformation was the invention of the printing press that accelerated the truth coming out of the reformation tribe. The repressive religious system of the catholic church could no longer stop the reformation movement even with all their resources and manpower’s. The church and the nations were finally free, and the freedom came through the loss of many lives, but majorly through the printing press breakthrough technology that spread and accelerated the knowledge of the reformation.

Heaven finally crushed that wicked harlot system, called organized religion. The people of God through the ministry of the invention of the press and others who were strategically position for that season brought liberation to humanity. The back of the dark age was broken, and a new day of spiritual and social freedom was ushered into the earth through a company that will not be broken by the spirit of religious witchcraft and illegitimate leadership.

INTERNET, SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE SPIRIT OF REFORMATION

It is crystal clear as a noon day that the present church and the nations are in the midst of another powerful reformation just as it was in the days of Martin Luther. The father has also made available to us the technology and platform of the internet, and social media networks to express his current truth, which unfortunately has also been almost captured, and limited behind the walls of certain churches, organized religion, and what some call apostolic networks since the late 80s.  The release of the internet platform and the establishment of powerful social media has indeed accelerated the move of God in this season in a manner most pastors and church leaders are afraid to face.

The reality is, the false narrative they’ve built in the past in terms of how the want their congregation and the rest of the world to view them has been knocked down through the open source internet platforms. Since pride, deceit, and arrogance were the strong driving force behind their guardedness and protectionism philosophy of ministry, and the Lord desire his people to be built up so they can step into their ordained destiny, the father had to create these interconnectivity social media hub to spiritually speak to his people in a manner that will instruct and equip them. Now here is the other side of the coin.

IMMATURITY AND DEVELOPMENT IN THE NEW SEASON

Many of those who now have access to this vast world of internet and social media, like the children of Israel who came out of the land of bondage don’t have the right cultural value and understanding of engagement on this platform unfortunately. Many of them are ignorant, rude, prideful and carnal in their interaction.

Many things are happening on the social media platform in regards to the shaking and rebuilding of the foundation of the house of God that may seem confusing, and sometimes abusive of the grace and eldership of those who have been sent to lead in the spirit of this project of re-construction, and I quickly want to address this misguidance.

The internet and social media age is one of the greatest technologies of our time, given to build, empower, and leverage our capacity with those who have already been resourced with the necessary competence and skill and insight. The social media platform is divinely engineered by Christ to close all socioeconomic and religious/spiritual disparities.

Some of us who were living on stale bread of the 80s, or early 90s revelation of Christianity have been accelerated into the current speakings of the father in this new day, and I know that many are still struggling to adjust because we’ve not been properly adjusted and orientated on this new direction of interaction, but I am certain that we shall all be equalized as we allow the Spirit of Christ to lead us as we open up in the spirit of truth and honesty.

There’s no doubt that the internet Christian ministry is still very much in its developmental stage, at list here in Africa, and we need to recognize this in order to allow us to develop the right capacity and skill to manage how we engage on this platforms.  The spiritual regulation of how we utilize the social media in the process of the building of the house of God which is our lives must be addressed.

OVERSIGHT AND GUIDIANCE OF THE NEW DAY

The inability to strategically manager how we use the social media networks as Christians is almost truncating the very purpose of this strategic, prophetic global media platforms. Someone needs to start waking up to the very essence of the social media platform. We need to start teaching and correcting, even rebuking certain folks who uses the social media to express their own selfish agenda and ungodly way, that’s if they claim to be members of the body of Christ. If they are not member of the church of the Lord, we have no right to rebuke them but to correct them in love and that is based on what the word of God informs us.

The fact that we are not in a physical [building] house does not give us the right to discredit the ways and order of the things of the Spirit and the body of Christ.  One of the things I have noticed in my interaction online is to realize the nature of work that still need to be carried out within the hearts of many who are members of the body of Christ.

There are things we have assumed that are not necessarily accurate in terms of the ways and culture of the kingdom of God. We need to learn how to balance or maybe leverage the human and spiritual resources exposed to us through the social media in our physical gatherings and fellowship as members of the church of the Lord. I can understand why certain men of God try to stay away from social media, especially Facebook, and that it’s because of the arrogance, rudeness, and insensitivity of certain folks.

Some have actually tried to use the social media to correct and even rebuke their pastors and elders in the church, and this is completely not acceptable. If you have any issue with your leaders or pastor, you have the right as a child of God to call the attention of how you feel to your leader regardless of how he or she may view your point.

Yes, I do understand that certain men of God have actually made themselves none approachable even to their members. Even with such leaders you can still either send them a mail or text, and if they refused to contact you, you can then inform their pastor friends about your plight in the spirit of humility. And if they still do not give you the necessary attention, having proven that you’ve satisfied your conscience, you are then free to leave such a house quietly without bitterness.

THOSE WHO WILL ENTER THE NEW DAY OF THE LORD

I am highlighting this point because we are stepping into a new spiritual season that demands that we precisely understand the sacredness of what the father is bringing us into or else, we will be denied entering the promised land, just as we see with the children of Israel, except for Caleb and Joshua who was said to have a different spirit of excellence.

Please note that you cannot just go on social media to express your feeling without considering what the word of God says regarding what you about to say. Don’t think that because they’re nobody physically monitoring your words, comments, and post online in terms of spiritual oversight gives you the authority or license to say anything, or do anything you wish without consequence. You’ve got to remember that we’ve been given this window of social media opportunity for one reason alone and that is for the rebuilding of the house of God.

CHURCH IS ORGANIZED, WITH A BORDERLESS SPIRIT

The church is not just a gathering of stone of words and revelation if you will without a clear, constructive, directives and structures of divine intent. We cannot abuse this spiritual moment of divine release through the spirit of Cyrus and start playing games with heaven’s mandate for this now moment.

Secondly, the very life nature of our movement which is born in the Spirit of the love of Christ allows us to walk in the spirit of a unified administration of the various grace, gifts, and callings in a manner that helps to reach and disciple nations as we are commanded by our Lord Jesus Christ. One of my personal spiritual [duties] assignment is to provide sound, doctrinal teachings, sourced through an advanced prophetic wisdom in other to give clear revelatory knowledge and insight of the way, the truth, and the divine life of Jesus Christ, as the only operating system of the church as she engages the nations even through the social media platform.

PRESSING FORTH IN THE MANDATE

To allow another philosophy that is rebellious and frivolous to penetrate the camp is to allow ourselves to be capture by the spirit of Egypt. The almost reliance of our identity and survival through the aggressive western, humanist culture is to abdicate the future of our movement to the hands of Pharaoh and Babylonians system of government which has already capture certain souls within the body of Christ. There is an urgent need to stop building randomly and start structuring systematically according to the spiritual pattern given to us.

The knowledge of the operation of the kingdom of God built through sound spiritual values and governmental system must be understood and followed to the letter in this season of systemic spiritual warfare. The vast reality of the released values and principles of the reformation and restoration of the house of God, through the hospice of a sound, apostolic system in dealing with the issue of immaturity and the protocol of divine interaction in this epoch must be firmly understood and utilized to the maximum.

Heaven has provided the body of Christ the tool of internet and social media to fast track our kingdom initiatives, and it is left to us to seize this moment before it’s too late in carrying out our prophetic mandate. We need to readjust our hearts and wineskin to this new direction of the Lord as we corporate with the Holy Spirit to guide and lead us as we build a system of kingdom lifestyle that can interface between a terrestrial and celestial church system.

The resources available for this present church must be clearly understood and utilized in a manner that should further build and empower the corporate body of Christ even to that reality of kingdom mandate in the 21st century. The way we see the body of Christ and the administration of church relationships and interaction, especially on cyber community must now be precisely redefined and upgraded with full flexibility, yet without compromising our apostolic doctrinal assignment and spiritual stand in engaging the high places.

 

The wineskin, or structure  of  past reformation emphasis is no longer good in sustaining the kind of momentum required to express the life of God within a humanistic system of thinking. learning to rep[resent the present prophetic voice of the father for the nations through the world of social media cannot be compromised. We must be very careful of how we represent our calling, grace and gift on social media and other platform of interaction in this day of the shifting of season.

This platform has no mercy for carnal frivolous behavioral lifestyle. Projecting wrong values and contrary principles within the walls of your church can lead to a serious backlash on social media because you don’t know who is listening and recording you. The issue is not about being overzealous by monitoring what we say in public; the issue is rather about challenging ourselves to align to the kind of life heaven has ordained for us both as leaders and followers of Christ.

We must raise a spiritual standard that is ten times better than the hypocritical system of Babylon. We must use the social media platforms and the rest of the technologies available to advance the knowledge of the kingdom of God especially amongst the Millennials.

We cannot afford to be weak or shortsighted in our engagement. We need an upgraded spiritual template with a strong prophetic spirit to marching on towards that place of impact. This is the best day for the church of the Lord.  This is a new spiritual season for the Body of Christ. Welcome to the third day of kingdom manifestation.

Making sense of this new spiritual season

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?

THE BOOK OF THE GENEALOGY OF JESUS CHRIST

THE BOOK OF THE GENEALOGY OF JESUS CHRIST

A prophetic perspective into your spiritual heritage and bloodline

By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

 

The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Mathew 1:1

As the father draws my attention to this fascinating scripture, I once again saw the importance of the body of Christ, not just to identify with our physical place of birth, regardless of how wonderful we might have cherished such upbringing, or how dreadful and traumatic the experience of such place still lingers within the walls of our imagination and memory.

The emphases I felt the father was drawing my attention to was to reexamine the meaning and role genealogy played in his progressive, redemptive, and restorative program of his Son. I realize that the body of Christ in this crucial epoch needs to rediscover and encourage itself to prophetically embrace its authentic, spiritual [identity] genealogy, which biblically is more important and relevant than any natural family lineage, regardless of how noble or royal such lineage might be according to John chapter 3.

 

Genealogy is a powerful mystery

Genealogy is a powerful mystery, embedded within the realities of human life and its highly complex, sociocultural definition and protocols. Our lineage is a picture and a story of our identity, both in the natural and spiritual form.  Our lineage speaks deeply into why we are who we are and the hope of what we directly or indirectly long to become.

The invisible code of our identity pushes us towards a certain direction and preference, we may not necessarily be aware of but are there to determine our next move. We cannot deny or wish away from our genealogy.  Genealogy is deeply rooted within the very life of God within the human spirit. All lineages are traced back to Elohim, the creator of the heavens and earth. The vastness of his glory is reflected in the vast array of billions of stars born every hour. The human spirit, which is a direct reflection of the father’s image and likeness of the father tells us about this mystery of genealogy, connected to our eternal purpose and destiny in Christ.

It’s significant that I quickly state that genealogy is way beyond some elemental reality that can be touched and possess. Yes, lands, wealth and other material things are transferred from generation to generation. But true genealogy is a spiritual identity that can only be transferred and imparted through the divine bloodline of those who have been apprehended and summoned to be the custodian of the prophetic agenda of the father on earth. There’s a company amongst the sons of men, whose lives is a prototype of the ladder Jacob encountered on his way to Harran with angels ascending and descending.  [Genesis 28:10]

The prophetic [messenger] angels type of representation are the portals of the seasons of heaven on earth. They carry and announces shift in seasons; they connect and relocate each of God’s people to their aligned destiny in time. They are representatives of the prophetic the glorious, heritage of the commonwealth of heaven on earth. Heaven uses their location, position and seed to birth and initiates the advance prophetic mandate in time.

 

Why Abraham and David?

This is one of the reasons why Abraham was chosen and called to be the starting point of a new generation of heaven’s redemptive program.  Abraham was a very wealthy man who chose to leave behind what defines his wealth, custom and identity to listen and follow this God who introduced himself to him as his great reward.  David on the other hand, was a teenager whose heart was deeply in love with the God of his ancestors. His heart was searching for something outside the earth. His desire could not be met by things within the reach of this planetary system; there seem to be found in David not just a heart after God, but a passion to reflect and represent all of God’s purpose on earth.

I strongly believe that these are some of the qualities found in these two icons that connect the spirit of the Christ assignment to them. They became the lineage that kick-starts the process of eternal redemption of God in the earth. The prophetic program of the Father is connected and activated on earth through the powerful process of genealogy. For Christ Messianic assignment to become an effective, redemptive reality, he needed not just a body to legitimatize his function, but also a divinely selected, and a well approved, and prepared bloodline to execute such a mandate.

 As our natural birth connects us to a large family tree, so is our spiritual birth. We all have a spiritual genealogy that is eternally connected to our identity and character disposition. Our entire spiritual life is a formation of one seed that reflects two distinct characters, that of David and Abraham, as we’ve just noted.

There’s a uniqueness to your spiritual personality, calling and assignment that should not be mistaken or generalized by humanistic, or religious popular opinion. There’s a profound, prophetic utterance the father made after the fall of man in the garden that is still being fulfilled even to this season. This prophetic word, deals with the judgment of the serpent through the seed of the woman. Well, creation and the church are still tracking the ultimate manifestation of this judgement.

 Today we know that the seed of the woman was Jesus Christ, who journeyed from genesis and through the lineage of Abraham and David until he finally bruised the head of the serpent on Calvary and his ascension back to his father.

 I am very weary of the gospel that tries to clone everyone into one single identity, especially in the way we practice Christianity today. Your genealogy speaks deep into the core of your spiritual identity. It speaks into the formation of how you get to the place of concluding on certain knowledge and beliefs within the universe of Gods prophetic purpose which ultimately leads to how you respond to your spirituality and assignment.

 

Tracing your spiritual lineage

Who we are as believers and followers of our lord Jesus Christ carries very deep, rich, spiritual history that must not be taken lightly. Each of our spirits, and the proceeding formation of the fruit of spirituality carries a DNA code that can be traced to certain individuals within the world of our assignment. Every born again, spirit-filled believers are members of a divine clan, representing a vast, corporate, life within the bigger framework of the father’s eternal, prophetic counsel.

You may be part of a church organization, or may even be given a post of leadership, but that place or position may not truly resonate within the core identity of your spiritual genealogy, and therefore, you’re not able to perform and produce to the fullness of your assigned, spiritual capacity.

This is something I have personally witnessed, but highly challenging for many to accept, especially if you are a pastor who have labored and invested into people to be part of what you’re building. In my years of pastoring, I have had the painful experience of releasing some of our most gifted and resourceful members of others ministry. Initially, the experience did not sit well with my spirit until the father began to deal with my heart regarding the matter until I realized their leaving was not just for my good but for the general advancement and building up of the kingdom of God.

When we build to own and not to release, it will be highly difficult to positively respond to this kind of teaching. This is a day of the restoration of lost truth in order for the house of God to be perfectly constructed according to divine order. Our function in the kingdom is far bigger than the little empires we have built for ourselves in the name of ministry. The ministry is the Lord’s and not ours.

 There’s a company of people you belong to the kingdom of Israel that enhances your grace function better in the eternal prophetic order of heaven. Please do understand that this does not mean that the house, or its leadership is doing something wrong; in fact, this experience has nothing to do with right or wrong. This is more about proper alignment that allows for effective functioning of our assigned destiny.

This is about where and who you’ve been divinely connected to with the prophetic plan of the father. The entire twelve tribes are the very identity and the summation of the nation of Israel, but each of the tribes carries its own unique image, purpose, and assignment that clearly distinguish them from the rest but also complement the rest.

 I’ve seen so many today in the body, especially among some of us who claim to be part of the apostolic reformation community who either lack the divine knowledge and the operational principle of the genealogy order of operation. Yes, there’s been so much emphasis on fathering and the orphan spirit, yet, little have been discussed or even mentioned regarding the rich life, embedded with the mystery of spiritual genealogy.

I’ve discovered that the main motive for our one-sided teaching emphasis on fathering and sonship is mainly centered on the whole issue of gathering more people, influence and resource for our individual camps and networks, and not really about the core issue of spiritual alignment and advancement of the body of Christ to maturity.

The order of heaven is designed in such a way that every one of us is a reflection, or do I say, an extension of someone’s spiritual experience. For example, the person who led you to the Lord, and maybe discipled you has a part of his or her spiritual DNA impacted into the building blocks of your spiritual edifice.

Although in most cases, we hardly realize or recognize this fact, and when we do, we pretend as if it’s not a big deal. In my own case, I could still remember two important people who played a major role in my discipleship development. If not for these two individuals, am not sure if I’ll be where I am today regarding my spiritual journey.

Identifying your spiritual bloodline

Friends, it’s a fulfilling thing to be able to help members of the body of Christ in this season of great spiritual prostitution of truth and sacred things find their true identity and genealogy. The whole history of a person’s life and originality is encoded within his or her genotype. Your spiritual genotype carries the answer to your genealogy, including who are ordained to mature you into perfection in Christ.  The one who helped in developing your spiritual knowledge and awareness, to some degree, determines the quality nature of your spiritual orientation and identity.

Our spirit carries a journey of rich history; how you see and understand things either natural or spiritual is linked to various inputs and information data your spirit receives and process as true spiritual reality. The wholeness or fragmentation of your spiritual knowledge, to a large degree speaks into your understanding and process of your genealogy.

To realign yourself back to divine order and functionality, you must identify your biblical, spiritual bloodline, and am not talking about you tracing your root to some natural Jewish tribe in Israel like many are doing today in America or Africa.

This is a spiritual thing that the father that can only be done through the guidance and leading of the Holy Spirit.  If your heart is truly searching and you’re open to the word of God, the Father will connect you to your place and tribe, and there you will truly find rest for your soul. Your eternal, prophetic assignment on earth is what defines your genealogy and tribal, kingdom community.

THE REDEPLOYMENT OF KINGDOM GOVERNMENTAL GATEKEEPERS

gatekeepers

A prophetic word for the church and its watchmen

 By  Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

 

 

Isaiah 60

8“Who are these that fly along like clouds, like doves to their nests?

9 Surely the islands look to me; in the lead are the ships of Tarshish, a bringing your children from afar, with their silver and gold, to the honor of the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor

 

My holy one have flown the sky like clouds that have refused to give its rain in its due season. Like the dove to their nest, the clouds of yesterday’s obsolete victory have covered and hid my gatekeepers and watchmen within the nest of their memories of war.

They are hidden away; the gatekeepers have been hidden away for a while now. They have been hidden from the view of men who took for granted the covering of my grace and shield; even from men within my own household, and the nations who are desperately seeking for leadership direction and counsel of peace in times of war.

The gatekeepers are governmental kingmakers in the earth whom the father ordained to be peace-brokers over the seen and the unseen realms of the universe. However, this is not their doing to be quite in the season when it seems their voice is desperately sought for in leadership direction. For it was I, the Lord who seized their voice from speaking.

Yes, the unheard voice and authority of my watchmen and portals was my own doing to reveal the deep corruption taking place within the sanctuary of my people. The unspoken voice and less seen activity of true passionate intercession for a while now is a revelation of how the hearts of my people have turned away from me, and to reveal the degree of how my people have turned to familiar spirit and divination.

 I, the Lord called for dryness; a drought in the land when the hearts of my people grew fat and lukewarm over the former gains and provision of my outpouring rain. I called for a famine of my word and true revelation of my speakings when the house of Israel, my church, refused to no longer acknowledge my presence and glory. I brought the wisdom of my portals and watchmen to obsolesce; and the glory of my gatekeepers to a place of redundancy and mockery.

Since no one sought the way to Zion, but allowed the pathway to Shiloh overgrew with wild grass and beast with no one to control them, so I caused my people to depend on what their hands have built and created that their folly and emptiness may be exposed for all to judge.

My people prayed and interceded for their own gain, pleasure, and desire; they’ve mastered the act of using my gift and grace to build a name for themselves. My leaders contest the heart of my people with me; they thrived in the game of falsehood and the emptiness of self-glory. They deceive the innocent and turned the hearts of the Nazarenes to drink wine. My people have lost the passion and hunger for my ways, truth and life desire. Their gain of yesterday’s prayers and intercession have now become the monument of shame and blindness, hindering the very development and maturity of my people; for they say, see what our hands have gained in the place of ‘our prophetic insight and prayers.

While they seem to be spiritually active, yet, their so-called activity is a deep reflection of their, emptiness, fear and insecurity with one another. Their gathering in what they call prayers and intercession brought death in place of life to the camp. Their feast and breaking of bread brought more division and sickness rather than healing and edification to my body.  Their prayers and intercession became a strange fire before me, for I was grieved, and therefore, judged them that they may not be eternally condemned.

My gatekeepers became weary and tired of the perversion within my house.; they therefore became weak and voiceless at their post until they slept off like in days of Lot at the gate of Sodom and Gomorrah.

As my gatekeepers became even more weary and overwhelmed by the arrows of the enemy, so in my goodness and mercy, I called them off their post to myself that they may regain the revelation of my love and that of my Son.  Now, I am reawakening and upgrading the spirit of my GATEKEEPERS as I get ready to redeploy them back to my church across cities and nations of the world. I have been at work within the hearts of my own watchmen as I withdrew them for a season to rest and unlearn the ways of human effort even in the place of self-will prayers and intercession.

I have drained them of the wisdom and strength of religion, traditions of men and the sensuality of an unhealed emotion even in their prayer closet. I have been teaching them about how to perfectly view from a vantage position of a wall once broken, but now restored even with a higher elevation like the LADDER OF JACOB that could CONNECT to TWO realms and realities AT THE SAME TIME. 

Many, even within my household have ignorantly written off my gatekeepers and portals as men and women who have lost their place, strength, wisdom and vision into the divine activity of heaven for earth. No, I called them into myself to strip them of their old wineskin which no longer carry the currency and propensity of my present governmental mandate.

The prayers and intercession that was coming from the stream of these weak and tired guards, made my church even weaker and more soulish in their expectation, therefore, I shutdown their interaction and engagement in the heavenlies that Satan my not continue to take undue advantage of my warriors of righteousness.

It’s been a period of dryness and refreshing at the same time as I allowed the season of healing and restoration to pass over them for the regroving of the spirit of my vessels of war.  I have at this moment, set a new platform of interaction, intercession, and interception in spiritual activity over regions and spheres that will ultimately establish the true foundation and pillars of righteousness, peace and joy in replacement of the weak system of humanism and false religion.

 Now, I am ready to release this new guards of men and women who indeed understand not just the times and season, but are true leaders in their own rights to give leadership through wisdom for the marching forward of my church as the submit to one another in mutual love and respect for their calling and assignment.

These watchers of the night and the days of men are becoming seasoned doorways of a fresh release of my speakings and zeal, as they through the Spirit of supplication and intercession infuses into my church, the grace and desire to passionately imprint upon the hearts of my saints the will to establish my kingdom agenda in the earth.

I will continually embolden these gatekeepers with courage who are my portals of truth and the custodian of the revelation of the outpouring of my Spirit and prophetic agenda for this season of the end. I will reinforce their forehead with the identity of my [nature and authority] name as I did with Ezekiel and the rest of my prophetic servants who stood against the mouths of lions in their time. These ones will not be weary nor get tired; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not faint, for my presence will be their covering and canopy.

If you care to know, the eyesight of these company of men has been upgraded with a greater, advanced prophetic vision and inclination to see afar and know that which is yet to enter the thoughts and the hearts of men and the prince of the air. These gatekeepers are now being deployed across the spheres of life with governmental authority to bring the decree of the father to bear over creation.

They are deployed to announce the appointment of fresh governing authority at the gates of all entry points of divine transaction within communities and inner cities. The stirring of the spirit of supplication is now awakening new governmental intercessors who are stirring the heart and passion of the father to see his eternal, kingdom desire become a forceful reality across the body of Christ and within the nations.

Prisoners of hope across the lands are currently emerging with a refreshed sense of destiny, courage and determination for the restoration of the broken walls and burnt gates of nations. The Spirit of the Lord is stirring the Nehemiah’s of this generation as apostolic watchmen and prophetic gatekeepers are taking their rightful place again. The combination of the priestly heavenly watchers and earthly elders are now fast tracking the agenda of the kingdom for this hour.

Here are they who have given themselves no rest until the house of Zion becomes a true eternal habitation for ELOHIM. The order has changed in the heavens regarding the activities of the father for his church and creation, and so men position in the earth must now precisely align themselves to the current, prophetic oracles of the father. There is now a glorious flying out of a truly empowered and renewed company of men and women like eagles, known as portals and gatekeepers of Christ across the airspace of our corporate gatherings and family communities.   

There’s now an advanced deployment of well-seasoned, governmental prophetic voice, who are collaborators with highly skilled and creative apostolic blacksmith engineers, with the finest of the spirit of humility, honor, and well matured, wisdom eldership posture, seated at the entrance gates of cities and regions of continents.

 

The prophetic engagement and collaboration between heavenly initiative and activity beneath the waters of the earth as we saw in genesis is accelerating a divine reformation and restoration of highly matured, tested sons of the kingdom out of the four-head-streams of the RIVERS OF EDEN. Look, here they come, flying with healing on their wings for the redemption and restoration of creation.

Can you hear the flapping of their wings? Can you hear the sound of their trumpet blasting across the clouds of the heavens over men? Listen to the voice of their singing like the sound of many waters flowing from the ALTAR before the father’s presence. See the robs of their humility shining with the brilliancy of the presence of the father as they go forth announcing the speaking and comings of the LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH.

The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ… the portals have been repositioned. The gatekeepers are taking their place again. The watchmen are now watching with a washed, elevated, governmental sight to see afar and prepare the church and the nations for the days of his glorious appearance. It is a new day, members of the household of faith; this is the third day church. A new identity of the gatekeeper’s ministry has been redeployed with an advanced governmental authority to push the prophetic further the initiative of kingdom harvest to the ultimate end. Heaven is recruiting new portals, gatekeepers and watchmen, won’t you avail yourself to this glorious calling?

This is the voice of one under the hospices of Portalsgate resource.

Shalom!

Realignment, a focal point into 2017

REALIGNMENT, A FOCAL POINT INTO 2017

A prophetic perspective.

 

By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

 

 

1 Kings 22

Wrong alignment is probably one of the greatest weaponry the enemy has since applied to weaken, frustrate, and even derail the development and advancement of individuals and the corporate church.

 

The issue of proper, effective coalition is a major theme in the entire scriptures. The fact is, one can summarize the whole bible into the account of man realigning back to its original source. If we are wrongly positioned or connected, our entire life and ministry can be negatively affected such that it brings unnecessary issues and conflict into our lives.

 

A wrong alignment generally means to be wrongly placed, positioned, or connected. It means to be wasting one’s skill, energy, or resource at the wrong position. It is a means of distraction, energy and time wasting.  It also suggests, doing the right thing in the wrong place or with the wrong person or people. It also suggests the lack of the proper connection to learn, function and contribute within ones assigned grace, skill, and capacity. 

 

Wrong alignment could also refer to a lack of a well-balanced spiritual, and psychological outlook to life and relationship. It hides the beauty of your inner skill and creativity. It steals your confidence and courage to boldly express your God given ability in a way that allows you to gracefully develop even through the contradictions of life.

 

Thus, a person suffering insecurity will usually seek audience with certain groups, or individuals to hang out with in order to gain some kind of acceptance, recognition, and a sense of importance, even when such a person is constantly being used, abused and manipulated. Meaning that insecurity, fear, the lack of emotional wholeness, and other forms of dysfunctional life outlook primarily causes wrong alignment or relationship.

 

Furthermore, such alignment or relationship takes a lot from you without recognizing and appreciating the best you offer.  Such relationship thrives on your desire to serve, lack of understanding, or weakness, low self-esteem, poverty of mind, and spiritual witchcraft to manipulate your good will and servant heart.

 

Wrong alignment is a position of dysfunctionality, unproductive service and wasteful management of your resources and time.  It is important to state that relationship at any level can be primarily aborted when there’s a lack of truthfulness and commitment towards the sheer value of such relationship’s vision and objective at any given season.

 

In other words, if the factors that aligns a person, or group of people to a visionary objective is no longer in view or focus, it becomes highly challenging for people within such alliance to remain objective and directional in their core input to the mandate. It is a significant factor within the sphere of a vision- mandate to continually recast the vision and constantly evaluate development and progress of the sheer value and cultural ethnical code of the relationship or assignment.

 

So many laudable vision and assignment has been prematurely terminated due to the lack of the understanding of the principle and value protocol of relationship, especially within the church circle. It is not enough to receive good vision and good intention for a cause If there’s no effective community life that allows for liberty of individuals to contribute in an objective and respectful manner.

 

 A wrong relationship, or false alignment can prematurely end your life and ministry. It can turn your good spirit into a foul, unclean spirit within the culture of the community of Saints. Wrong alignment brings division and schism to the camp. It turns friends with each other. It frustrates and weaken the advance of the Spirit at all levels.  It develops a wrong, unhealthy competitive spirit within the body of Christ, but more dangerously, it causes you to compromise and lower the values and high principles of the kingdom of God.

 Now is the time for readjustment and realignment. Yoke yourself to those whom heaven has designed and prepare for you before time began. If our Lord could send his own disciple two by two, how much more do we need to carefully give thought to precise wisdom and force of a mutually bound, seasoned relationship.

 

Think of all the great battles won in the word of God and through history, it’s all because there was proper positioning and alignment of people and the weaponries of warfare. Unproductive, self-seeking relationship, is getting to be one of Satan’s deadliest weapons in this season as we saw in 2 Kings 22.

 

Do not simply look for acquaintance and mere partners, but the search for those whom heaven has ordained you to share of the same spiritual genotype and value system as you press into 2017.

 

This new day of the Lord will require more than just ministry and preaching partners. The days ahead of the church will demand those who have been harvested out of seasons of needs, contradictions, trials, and fire of purification. Those who have been purified through a season of lack, needs and even prosperity have learnt some of the outstanding virtue of all time.

 

The character of the Spirit of the Lord has been formed within them, therefore, they carry the fruit of life that understands your strength and weakness at the same time. These are the one you must search for diligently. Break away from frivolous, competitive ministry relationships that only seeks to corrupt the good seed of the father in you. Search for those whom the spirit of wisdom, the fear of the Lord, godliness and humility has matured in them as a fruit of honor and dignity to cover you.

 

Search and look for those who speak the language of what you can pick up in the spirit, but you don’t recognize how to express it because you’ve not yet been given the language of expression which is very fine. Diligently search for those who do not only relate to what they physically see around you, but to what they discern in you.

 

Look for those you share of the same spiritual bloodline, the same DNA, the same lens-view, and perspective, but can at the same time give clarity and manifestation to the truth you’ve been given. Inquire of those whom you can learn and can transfer of their pure spirit into yours, so you may gain even greater wisdom and insight. Search and befriend those who can challenge, inspire, and increase your gift and fruit capacity in a multiple fold.

 

 Look for those who precisely understand your divine construct without you saying a word. Just by mere contact and interaction, they can pick what you are made of, and where you are heading. These are the type who can relate to your weakness, fear, failure, and strength at the same time. They are not surprise at your short coming for they can relate to what the know and see of your future.

 

Friendship is good, but you will need more than friendship to fully maximize those gifts and fruit designed for your generation. Look and even search in true submission to those who can light your light and flame your fire. Seek for the company of those who can tell you the truth, even when it hurts.

 

 Don’t break rank with those whom heaven has allotted to lead you into the ascended platform of what heaven has ordained for you. Seek your own angel within the company of the messengers sent to your community. Honor and respect the grace and truth found on their lips. For in doing so, you will find your own voice and increase level and strength of your ordained message. The lord will break and scatter what you’ve termed has friendship in the coming season.

 

Though it may hurt, but it will reposition you and the assignment the father has planned for you. Some of you will be removed from where you are now suddenly to be planted where you can be effective and productively function as Christ regent in the earth. Others will be relocated from one city to another only to be divinely connected with those who will grace and resource you.

 

Get ready to be yoked with your destined trainers and mentors for effective and productive life. Until you are moved from where you are now before gift and seed within you starts kicking for birthing. Seek not to be moved. Search not to be replace from where you are. For it will be divinely done in a manner that you will know that this is the hand of the lord. For those who are now despondent.

The Lord says, start praying for others to come into a fruitful and productive relationship, and the lord will raise others to begin praying and interceding for you until the spirit of direction baptize you afresh. Now is your time to seek for those designed for you. Those who carry your spiritual genotype will be able to boldly speak with compassion into that situation that seem challenging and difficult.

 

 

 The reason there’s seem to be so much frustration and disappointment with what has been termed relationship amongst the people of the lord is due to the lack of understanding the reason the father generally places people into our lives.

 

Find your joining partner. Search for those who carry the wisdom that gives voice to your grace, gift and creativity. For the Lord sent out his disciples two by two. This partnership is not your marriage partner, but your gift and ministry partner.

This is the other iron that can sharpen your own iron. This is the one who can pick up and confirm what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to you, or is about to say to you.

This is the one who is not in competition with you, but a dependable ally, who does not only desire your success, but has been ordained to see to your development, maturity, and fruition.  

 

It’s time for realignment. It’s time to upgrade. It’s time for a kingdom driven relationship that is truly eternally designed for your perfection and prophetic destiny. Have a blessed and prosperous 2017 season.

While most of us are on social media to interact and develop productive friendship relationship, we nevertheless need to be highly mindful that not everyone on these platforms  are there for the right reason, and this includes those we may assume to be Spirit filled Christians.

It is becoming clearer that what we say or project on social media are instantly becoming the very extension of our physical, personal world to the degree that someone can gain instant opportunity or breakthrough. While others on the other hand can Incur the wrath of friends or be displaced at the work place because of a wrong attitude expressed on these media networks. Hence, we see these two parallel sides on social networks that we must be cognizant of.

My worry however is the increasing reality of the idea of those who employ the social media to project their false belief in regards to how they manipulate and interpret the word of God to frame their own narration of reality. Please friends, carefully read and understand the intent of what I am saying before I am misinterpreted. 

I am not proposing that people should not comment or like our post. It’s been proven that for the fact that someone clicked the like button on your page or post does not necessarily mean they are in complete agreement with you. My point is, clicking the like button has become a measuring yardstick of who we think like us or dislike us. 
This is such a shallow concept of relationship in terms of matured, biblical standard, and I suggest we should move away from this carnal notion.

Before you post your words, comment or click the like button, it’s important to capture the state of your thought and attitude, particularly with regards to what you’ve just read. Many of the posts and comments we read almost instantly on Facebook are reactionary by nature. While you have those who are given a true, inspiring, motivational, encouraging and challenging message to the body of Christ on the cyber space. 

You also bear on the other side, those who will be  either responding intelligently to what have been written, or those who will be negatively reacting through their unhealed and unbalanced emotions.

My focus, however, on this note, is to highlight this set of group who seek to use the social media to reinforce a seemingly biblical believe to enforce a rebellious (attitude) stronghold they know exist within them. Because of their knowledge of the word of God, coupled with some biblical traditions they’ve mastered down the years of their Christianity, it’s  easy for them to use scripture to say what they want to say without necessarily having the spiritual and emotional discipline to deal with matters objectively.

It is really difficult to falter these individuals if one lacks a deep sense of discernment and the operation of the Spirit of wisdom within. You have innocent, spirituality unskilled  Christians in the name of unity or relationship, following these individuals or group exclusively to be used for endorsing their false, unbiblical, disobedient narrative of what they term as the gospel of the kingdom. In most cases, they use their knowledge of scripture, giftedness and a sense of maturity to lure others who may be exposed to the scripture, but have very limited knowledge on the laws of sound, balanced biblical interpretation.

Let’s not seek to endorse or reinforce people’s inherent strongholds by merely clicking the like  button on social media, especially when such opinions are back up by  using the word of God outside. Anyone can  use the word of God to say or mean whatever they want it to say for them. Often times, scriptures are used for interpreting our own bias, narrow view of what we think, see or believe regarding a person or situation.

 I have often picked out how excellent scriptures are taken out of context to buttress the idea of a particular perspective we want to project. This is a clear reflection of witchcraft practice in its highest level. If we permit others to manipulate us to approve or justify their wrong belief system just because they’ve perfected the act of using scripture to validate their opinion, we shall be greatly judged for our blindness and lack of discernment. This is a word for all believers and followers of the lamb.

ALONENESS

 

received_10205760456410250

 

The power of an authentic life

 

By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

I know the first thing that comes to mind when you read this headline is that it sounds contradictory to what the scriptures says. Well, it may seem so, but it doesn’t if one carefully looks at the context and direction of my observation. Indeed, it was the Lord who said it was not good for man to be alone-all one.

Nevertheless, the aloneness of man, biblically speaking doesn’t in any way suggest that Adam was lonely. The purpose he was given companionship was designed for something far greater than his emotional need could comprehend, at least before his fall in the garden. In fact Adam was not aware he add any other need until the father decided it was not good for him to be alone. This issue was never about loneliness, but for that of purpose that far outweigh any sense of human need.

The definer of Adams fulfillment and satisfaction was his creator. Companionship and relationship was, and is still designed for a higher divine prophetic agenda.
Loneliness was the product of the fall, and it’s still very much is, in our 21st century post-modern humanist, self driven society.

Being alone in the sight of the father is not just a reflection of an inadequate capacity to effectively carry out a function, but to however reflect a balanced spectrum of a superior intelligence, ordained to show forth the multi-dimensional wisdom and glory of the creation of man in the class of divine beings.

Marriage was part of the father’s eternal grand design to portray his majesty, glory and sovereignty. We know that marriage has never been the idea of man or cultural belief.
Marriage is the first spiritual and the most powerful human institution, created by the father to display his eternal purpose for creation across the entire universe.

In other words, if you got married just because you were lonely, or for any other reason, outside of the divine blueprint, ordained for marriage, I am afraid, such marriage will lack the required joy and intimacy intended to attract the full blessing of the lord.  While this point is not the aim of this short note, I however felt it would be right to add this in the context of my point which is being alone.

We observed how our lord Jesus Christ, in several occasions, withdraws himself from the crowd to hear the next agenda and direction of the father for his earthly assignment.
It appears after every breakthrough and push towards his prophetic purpose, there is a withdrawal from the people.

The place of his withdrawal was the place of his vision and strength. He was a man of the people, yet he adequately understood why he must conceal himself from the same crowd he was sent to save. This is wisdom in display.   Amidst the endless pursuit of humans, vigorously seeking various forms of friendship and companionships.

However, the beauty of what each of us can bring to such position of (companionship) relationship, that’s if we succeed, will be ultimately determined by what has been carefully drawn and milked out from the quality of our seasons and time of aloneness. The best of our intelligence and productivity in any sphere of discipline is extracted from the point of qualitative quite time of being alone.

Think of this for a second, a person cannot acquire or experience a sound, well informed, qualitative education without investing seasons of quiet time to learn and be developed. Learning requires being alone. How many marriages, concerns and ministry functions today are failing for the singular fact that people have refused to spend quality time to learn to be alone in learning before engaging in such enterprise.

 When you always engage people, who are highly assuming or presumptive in their decision and judgements, that’s a clear sign that they’ve refused to learn the act of listening carefully in quietness before responding.

This kind of individuals do not just cause harm to their company, but also in their relationships even domestically. Maturity, specifically in spiritual matters requires a continual withdrawal from the crowd and public eye to learn, see and know how things are in order to effectively respond with the best of ascending knowledge and wisdom.

There’s the temptation to always look for the opinion and observation of society to afford us a sense of a pass mark even today on social media. We like our posts and remarks to be given a thumb upwards. The irony of this is, someone may like what you’ve posted, and may have benefited from it, and yet may not sense the need to click the like button. How would you judge or measure such behavioral expression?

In most cases because of our humanity, we feel sad for our post not being liked or noticed. It is my impression that people should as much as possible, especially if they are friends, should try to encourage each other by commenting and liking each other’s page.  Even so, if there’s no such response, and you know that what you’ve posted will benefit someone out in that respect, then, merely leave your post or comment there with a clear conscience, knowing fully well that you’ve done your part.

We need to learn to be around crowds, yet precisely be matured in discerning when the father is calling us to be alone with him. In a time when we are constantly being bombarded with all types of noises, especially from the world of news media, social media, sports and unending church programs, we must learn to be alone.

It is the spirit of rejection and insecurity that makes us feel frightened, or look to be losing our hold and control over people close to us, or even our spouse when they are going through a period of being called to be alone.

Every human, single or married needs that seasonal periods of being entirely. It is part of our human construction to find and rediscover ourselves within the context of the world we live in. How many leaders of companies and spiritual elders who desperately need that time for themselves by themselves and without any kind of interference from anyone.

This is a powerful healing therapy that is missing and lacking in our today’s busy life. I am not merely talking about going on holiday with your family. I am referring to that period you need in taking stock.

Learning to evaluate and determine the next step in your life’ journey is a powerful virtue of maturity. A time to stop and look at yourself in the mirror and evaluate how far you’ve come and talk to God in that personal, intimate relationship you’ve missed out for a while, even as servant-leader in ministry.

This is the point where you get to take a lot of things in, and can critically put things in perspective, especially in things that deals with important decision making.  A good successful leader makes a period of aloneness one of the most prioritized points in his or her endeavors. We can see that being alone does not necessarily mean loneliness or disengagement from divine activity.

One of the key manifestations of insecurity and false spirituality is the exhibit of a high-level sense of activity, especially when it sounds or looks highly spiritual. It is almost a general notion and acceptance that when we are seen to be seriously engaged in some form of activity, especially when it implies public view and their approval of acceptance of success, Which in this context may represents some act of the rigorous, unending church service and programs many of us are involved in with little or no resounding result of course, from heaven’s perspective.

We demand to learn and accept the beauty of being alone again and not feel guilty of what others may think or say about your season of silence.  Your productivity in any relationship requires that sometimes, you need to separate yourself for a season, stay away, or even move away to a different region or location as the Spirit of the Lord will lead you.

There’s a need to carefully follow the voice of the father’s direction for your life and that of your family during this epic season.  Being alone, specially when it is spirituality stirred, should always be seen as a virtue of a healthy productive life development.
