The Unfolding of a new day
by Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

This word was released in 2016

There’s an unfolding of heaven upon the earth in this new day. As the glory of this new day dawns upon every facet of the ecclesia’s life, the hearts of kingdom sojourners must become even more circumcised and pure, so they may walk circumspectly in the present unfolding truth that will cause them to become what wisdom has eternally destined and designed them to become in time.

We are now being awakened to take our eternal seat within the heart of the father as he shows us the mystery of the glory that now shines through the face of his Son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Sonship is a dual [citizenship] dimension; a position and location within the administrative life of the government of heaven and earth that administer the very nature and intended dominion of the father’s kingdom over the individual who bears the message, and then through his or her life, to all spheres of life within the universe.

The position of our Sonship statue in Christ is far higher than thrones, dominions, powers and principalities. Sonship, a life, that only gets to manifest after one has embraced the ministry of death and the resurrected experience of the cross. A life that is imparted through the revelation of the ministry of suffering with Christ until his glory is revealed through refinement of the fire. Christ the anointing; the key that quickens the glorious ministry of representation as priest and King upon the mountain of representation.

Our spiritual act of service is now enabling us to see what eternity has offered us as the opportunity to trade the past glory of yesterday for a glorious position of what is being unveil through the glorious life that is concealed in the three of life. Time is a moment given to us to show our worth in the suffering of the cross. The cross is the place and point of upliftment before the father and over the system of the world. Without the experience of the cross life, there can be no experience of the ascended life of the father.

It is in the place of the cross that we truly discover the eternal hope prepared for those who have become worthy of the resurrected life through their obedience of laying down on the altar of sacrifice like Isaac submitted his soul to the will of his father. Until we have truly learned to completely yield and submit our soul and its entire faculty to the obedience to the will of Christ, we will not be allowed to eat of the produce of the three of life. Stepping into the place where we can start to know and experience the power of the coming age demands that we totally yield ourselves to the purifying process of the lord’s fire.

It is through this fire that we can see and walk in the reality of the glory of the master. The flame and the cross are the current instrument given as approved agent of the Spirit of truth and faith. When they introduce you to issues and circumstance that seem as if they are going to kill you or the assignment given to you, you need to be assured of the fact that they are only the machinery heaven uses to deactivate the old man and its ways in you.

When the old man and its action are completely brought to the foot of the cross, then you are ready to be reactivated in the ascended operational life of the Spirit of wisdom over the kings and the system of this world.  It is through the cross that we lose the false identity Babylon has given to us to want and need outside the tree of life. Many have mastered the ACT of Christianity and its rudiments while the life of Christ is yet to be birthed and formed within them.

Now and then, we meet and see those who claim to have been called into the ascended ministry gift, yet their entire life system completely negates what they profess. We still see those who seem to have mastered what many today call the present emphasis on the father, but the smoke and fragrance of their life, gives them up, because their heart agenda speaks of a foreign god. A spirit that has mastered the language and utterance of Christ kingdom and its administrative prophetic and apostolic grace is a danger to the camp. for these are wolfs in sheep cloths.

A life that has deluded many to believe that when a person can speak with persuasive and enticing words, and he or she is able to pull the mass towards a certain direction or doctrine, they must be called and approved by the lord.

When the work of the father is not completely wrought in a life, and such a person meets an opportunity to take up certain actions within the community of the ecclesia, such an assignment does not only make the person prideful, but also become delusional in the act of handling and dispensing spiritual gift to the degree that the person literally become a powerful tool in the hands of the enemy to corrupt the life and flow of the Spirit within the community.

The residue mixture of their former (carnal) identity, carried over into the Christian community without embracing death has got these fellows even more deluded to think it is enough to have scriptural knowledge, prayer, fasting and prosperity as the sign of approval by the father. When we become captured in the life and ways of the Spirit of Christ, we become totally illuminated to see ourselves in the true reality of our eternal position and location in Christ who has become all things to us.

The more we behold his eternality, the more we realize our own eternal identity, and so we can be the faceless and limitless saints, we like the wind that cannot be tamed or hindered by the forces of the earthly forces. The operation of existence is changing daily as the reality of our new created position in Christ becomes even more real to us.

There’s a construction going on within you that is establishing the edifice of the father within. We are now being revealed to the foretaste of that which will be made known in the father and elders in the new Jerusalem.

When we begin moving in the power of the eternity, we start living beyond the boundaries of time, pace and mater. The weakness of the flesh will lose its grip over us until immortality finds expression through our mortality. The activity of the Spirit is eternal by nature and design. Thus, the (ministry office) face we wear is basically for identification and administrative function.

Our position and location in eternity far outweigh whatever grace of ministry, we may receive or have experienced. There’s a realm beyond the church; therefore, a position in Christ awaits us far beyond the mount of religion and activity of the ecclesia.

The ecclesia is a function of an administrative order of the Saints. We cannot effectively administrate what is still to be fully formed in the order and pattern that can truly represent all of the glory of Christ house.

We are being called to look away again from that which has become known and defined as the church but has not been built or firmed by Christ himself. The church is the governmental life of God flowing out of Christ through his representative.  If we are representing Christ on earth, everything about our lives, right from our personal behavioral construct, to our marriages and businesses should be a living witness of the glorious beauty of the Ekklesia.

Those who in the past saw a side of the movement of the Lord and tried to identify it by calling it the church are becoming forgotten in the shadow of today’s ascended standard. The glory of this new day, which is the beginning of the journey of man from time back into eternity will continue to shake and shift the landscape of earthly dwellers.  Now is the time to move up to the mountain of the lord so you can have stability in the rock of all ages.

THE POWER OF CHIOCE

concluding part.

 

THE POWER OF CHOICE

The redemption story.

 

By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

 

Understanding the sin tragedy

 I used to make this statement that we can never get to fully understand the gravity of sin, or what it did to the human nature until we precisely identify where man fell from, and what man fell into. Man fell from the position of glory according to the scripture, and we can identify that man also fell into himself. Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; The self-life, which eventually leads to judgement and destruction is what man inherited by yielding to the voice of the serpent.  Man wanted to be wiser than he already his. Adam was not satisfied and secured in who is and what the father has deposited in him, so he opted for the false counsel of Lucifer

The meaning of dominion and authority

Regardless of how we are able to exercise power and authority over things and others, if we are however unable to use such authority to restrain or constrain our own inner desires and appetites, we will eventually fail in our relationship with God and man. The dominion given to Adam was to start with him being able to subjugate (his will and desire) himself under the dominion and authority of the father.  Exercising restrain and dominion over our personal lives is the highest degree of spiritual government and maturity.  Our ability to exercise spiritual authority means nothing if we are unable to submit to the authority of God, regardless of the need.

The test of moral virtue

The test of Adam’s moral virtue and authority was to prove to himself and the powers of darkness that he is better than Satan and the fallen angels. It was clear that the lord was not attempting to tempt Adam by creating these two special trees call the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Adam, like the rest of the sons of God were created with the power of choice.

The ability for Adam and the rest of the sons of God like the cherubim and seraphim to have the ability to freely choose to serve and worship the father is of the greatest decisions the father made in the expression of righteouness and soverignty. This, of cause, was how Lucifer, Son of the morning was able to persuade one third of the angels to follow his rebellion against his creator.

The opportunity we all have

Adam’s opportunity to choose the instruction of the father was not really design to merely test his allegiance or commitment in obeying the will of The father, like many theologians and spiritual leaders have suggested. No. The power of choice was given to him to prove to himself and the rest of creation, including Satan that he has developed his ability to restrain himself from whatever form of temptation he may face. The word of God clearly state that the lord cannot be tempted by evil nor does he tempt anyone by evil. We are only tempted when we are dragged away by our own lust.

 

James 1:13-14   Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

Let’s not forget that Adam and Eve were not only created in the image and likeness of God but that they constantly enjoy fellowship with the father, so one would naturally assume to think they would swing their choice to obey what they were told regarding the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Nevertheless, it was not so. Man chose a different pathway. A pathway to follow a self-driven inclination contrary to the desired will of his father.

Adam’s self-centered choice

He made a choice to listen and follow the lustful and deceptive voice of the fallen of the arch angel by submitting to his already persuaded (wife) soul. The choice Adam made on that day brought him to the place where him and his wife were cast out of Eden. Every nanosecond of life is stirred and driven my choice. Whatever choice we make, will ultimately determine the direction and outcome of your life, and that of many within and around our world.

We cannot live life without choice. Yet, choice must be made from a well of knowledge that exist beyond the confined of the immediate needs and desire of our lives. Adam made a choice by listening to his selfish desire that lead the whole of creation into bondage.

The power given to us can only be effectively used as believers, if we learnt to relinquish our will, the place of choice making to the wisdom of the lord. While many will be concern about sharing some big revelation about Easter. I would rather take a simpler, but yet, a profound view to examine the question of how our choice affect our entire existence in this season.

 

Easter, an opportunity to retrospect

The revelation of Easter is the life of Christ, and the choice he made to pay the ultimate sacrifice for you and me and the entire human race. Easter is not about some religious dietary tradition not to eat meat, or more so, to follow some Roman Catholic Church dogma. It has always been the plan of the enemy to distort truth for some old wife fable. I still do remember asking folks back then when I was still pastoring, could you give me a bible reference to the whole issue why you must only eat fish on Easter? While people may say, well, it really doesn’t matter.

After all, it’s just a day’s event. what difference does it make? The issue however is, if you can choose to follow a popular tradition that carries no biblical truth or value, that already speaks volume regards to your faith quality. this note is addressing the issue of choice. If you cannot make choice about little things or what seem innocent, how can you make the right choice when it comes to the issue of life and death, or the advancement of the kingdom of God.

The choice Jesus made

Jesus Christ chose to come to earth, living his glory to die for you is not a church nor societal tradition. That is the most important reality that will under-guard the rest of the choice and decisions you will ever make in life.  And if you’re not sure of what you believe, it’s becomes very easy for you to be easily deceived or persuaded by anyone to follow what they believe. The death of Christ on the cross was to completely destroy the sin nature and everything that comes with sin so you can walk in the reality of a new culture, tradition and the power of new identity in Christ kingdom.

The questions you must ask yourself

Having said this, the question you should be asking yourself is, to what extent has the revelation of the ultimate sacrifice of Christ on the cross affected and changed your life and world perception.  Secondly, to what degree of the choice of Jesus Christ transformed your narration and understanding of his unfailing love caused you to love others, and live a life of true kingdom representative.

While some of us may be basking in the beauty of being called a Christian, or even serving in some local church community. However, to what degree has the revelation of Christ reformed your life to the extent that your lifestyle is completely reformed and transformed for Christ glory. Have you genuinely decided to follow Christ and the ways of his kingdom, or are you merely going through some religious rituals call Christianity?

Please note that your purpose of serving Christ is to daily follow his voice and will, even at that the seemliest complex and difficult situation. The truth is, if you are merely pretending to be a Christian, when the enemy comes to test your faith or power of choice then you are going to realize how you’ve played the fool. Adam could not be found truly faithful, even though he had power, authority and dominion. He lacked the restraining strength to say no to his appetite and of cause, the enemy.

The ancient war is still the same today

The ancient battle Adam faced in the garden is still the same today. Regardless of the race, position, culture or belief, you and I will be faced with the decision of making the right choice, and the choice you make will determine the next cause of your life’s outcome. The irony is, no human being without the transformed nature of Christ living in them can make the right choice. No matter how hard they try to be considerate and thoughtful in their decision, there would always be that element of human limitation.

 Addressing the ability to choose right

One of the reasons why Christ died on the cross is to help us deal with this weak condition of choice making. The book of Romans chapter 7 shows us the degree of this human weakness and chapter 8 showed us how to eventually walk in freedom. This condition has been inherited through the carnal nature of the first man. However, the second man,who is also known as the last Adam has now given us another opportunity to be rebirth from that carnal nature inherited in Adam.

1 Corinthians chapter 15 gives clear insight into the principle of the exchange of our nature. Ephesians chapter 2 and 3 further informs us how this spiritual transaction took place, and how we can actually transit from the old nature into the new man in Christ. It is from this new position of a higher superior life that we can make quality decision that will positively change and transform the narrative of our past life.

Believe me, like I said earlier, this is not about you mere saying you are a Christian while you know deep down in your heart that you’ve actually not truly committed your soul-will and desire to Christ. The lord cannot be mocked. The fruit of your life will always speak to you personally about who is in charge of your life. Being born of God is not a child’s play or game. This is not some trendy thing happening today; this is the very demand of the father for all of his creation if we must enter his kingdom.  No one can truly please him or make decision that will positively impact his family or community without the Indwelling nature of Christ.

My commendation

So recommit your desire and ways to Christ, and he will give you the grace and strength to make the right choice for him. Be determined to follow him to the end and your life will be filled with joy and peace. It’s time you start ascending in the revelation of Christ. Don’t ever forget that these principles are the portal to walking in the life and power of the second man, the last Adam:

Crucifixion, death, burial resurrection and Ascension.

Peace to all those who love to see the appearance of our Lord in their fresh and this generation.

Pressing forward in 2016

    Pattern of things to come

                          THIS MESSAGE IS ADDRESS TO BELIEVERS WHO

                          SEEM TO HAVE A CLEAR SENSE OF THEIR FUTURE

                            AND THOSE WHO ARE NOT THAT CERTAIN OF

                                WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS FOR THEM

                                           

                                          By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

Entering a critical moment of change

Greetings friends and family! We are indeed so grateful to the most high who has again granted us grace through his mercy to be found alive and active as we press towards the finishing line of the year. 2015, like the previous years have witnessed an incredible increase in what the scripture refers to as the birth pang.

The various cultural shifts, socioeconomic and geopolitics maneuvering witnessed across the globe in 2015 all attest to the fact that our world as entered a critical moment in the redesigning of its political and economic reliance.

We have seen unprecedented changes take place within the core belief system of society in terms of how religion and the New Age believe system is now shaping leadership and the perceptive moral footing of the 21st century society. Our nation here in South Africa was not left behind in the crusade of seeking and charting a new socioeconomic leadership direction.

 

South African, searching for a new leadership philosophy

As we begin to witness the true reality of the closure of a ‘leadership, built on the liberation philosophy’ to a different type of governance that is skillful and strategic in redesigning the platform of socioeconomic opportunity for all South Africans, we also need to be weary of those who may desire to hijack the process by taking undue advantage of the transitional gap.

The truth is, the current voice of opposition to the ANC lead government are not ready and mature enough to lead a complex nation like South Africa, and of cause, it is crystal clear that the current political leadership team have ran out of creative leadership strength, and it seem the people are saying they have over stayed their welcome.

While we see a lot of zeal without the balance of knowledge and wisdom to lead, we need to precisely pray and intercede that the current national leadership transition does not end up like some of the failed state we are witnessing across the continent. We will discuss more on this in another article coming soon.

However, as society moves from what has long been defined and accepted as the core moral norm into an uncertain terrain of the humanist frame of thinking, the church needs to strategically accelerate her drive towards the reestablishment of what is known as a true apostolic community as seen in the first century. The new normal as to be that which is sourced from the stream of Heavens River flowing out of the Garden of Eden. We can no longer drink from the order of the polluted stream of the Law of Moses.

Changing the obsolete wineskin

The obsolete wineskin of the current church will continue to make her vulnerable not just to the extremist jihadist crusade but also to the ever-growing voice of the antichrist movement in the west. There’s a need to now increase the voice of God’s prophetic marching order for the church and the nations so we can see a new order of a well matured governmental prophetic company arise in the earth in the fulfillment of their ordained mandate in this third day.

Keeping ranks in the order of our various levels of grace and gifting’s in the true spirit of mutual submission will enhance the power of true governmental community lifestyle needed to face the demonic principality over spheres across the nations.

The prophetic parallel  

We must remain relevant to our various posts, gates and walls as the angel of the Lord once again passes through the land of Egypt in total destruction of its firstborn. The day of the birth of the Sons of God kind of church is the day of the death sentence of the first born sons of the Egyptians. The day heaven came to judge Pharaoh and his nation is the same day the Lord liberated his own. We need to understand the parallel. First the natural then the spiritual.

As we discern this moment, there are things we need to start aligning our lives to in terms of the appropriation of the prophetic mandate of the Lord for our generation. Now is the time for the full restoration of the missing apostolic doctrine and tradition. We must learn again to continue in the purity of the apostle’s [teaching] doctrine, fellowship, breaking of bread and prayer. There must be a restoration of the message and spirit of the covenant that births the heart of true community and relationship.

In this day of increase darkness and weeping in the land of Egypt will also be the greatest season where the church will witness the unprecedented global harvest. This means that the army of the Lord must be dressed ready to lead a nation out of bondage into the glorious freedom and jubilee of kingly priesthood.

I was greatly encouraged by listening to Dr. Ben Carson recently, who is one of the leading presidential republican candidates who made it is political campaign to face and challenge the very foundation of the American politics call politically correct philosophy.

This ungodly philosophy has been used for decades to attack and stop anything and anyone that sound godly and righteous in the American society. The lord is using this man and many others to regain the voice and liberty of the church among Americans society and its leadership.

One very reason why the current Donald Trump presidential campaign is leading and gaining ground among the people is a clear view that people are fed up and tired of the lies, hypocrisy and deception the American political philosophy is currently built on. Heaven has begun to shake and shift things from the corridor of power.

A foretaste of things to come

I believe, this is a foretaste of the kind of debates and discussion, we will be having in seasons to come, and we have to prepare a church knowledgeable and mature to stand and debate the doctrines and tenets of our faith in the hope of winning some.

We need to build and invest in the competency of every believer as the wisdom of this world arises to challenge the philosophy of our faith. Dr. Ben Carson reminds me of Daniel in Babylon. We have to believe the Lord to give us the Spirit of wisdom and boldness to defend our faith without aggression.

As the day of the Lord draws closer upon man, the earth will continue to witness groaning of all kinds; they will be increased labor pain that tells us to remain prepared and be ready for the birthing of a glorious company of people known as the man-child tribe, the sons of the God Company of saints who will finally stand as the three of heavens witness on earth.

We are getting closer to that season where everything we know and understand about the church and humanity is taking a new form and shape. My point is, the context of our plans and objective for the coming year should be defined in the light of the progressive unfolding prophetic agenda of the father for this end of days.

Don’t be carried away be false prophetic prediction

Let us not be carried away by some emotionally stirred prophetic prediction future-telling of religious charlatans. More than ever before, there’s a need to readjust our eyes and focus on the Lord that no matter what may be happening around or within us we will remain unmovable and unshakable. I strongly believe that this year has afforded many of us the opportunity to learn and be equipped with various unique knowledge and experienced that can further enhance our advancement in the coming seasons.

If you have lost a sense of direction

Yet not too many will be able to precisely say for a fact that they are looking forward to the coming year with great expectation unfortunately. Many are in the place where they have lost their sense of meaning and direction to life. The meaning of purpose, vision and destiny is almost becoming a foreign idea for these folks.

 While they may be found among believers or even seem to be handling spiritual leadership matters, there is something deeply wrong with the philosophy of their relationship with God and men. On the natural, when you encounter these brethren, you will assume everything is perfect with them. However, they’ve been discovered to be the most isolated, lonely and frustrated folks within the community of God’s people.

While they may be the best in caring and ministering to others, yet, their own life is filled with discouragement, unending emotional pain and bitterness of their childhood memories which is presently affecting their current relationship and work productivity.

 Their connection with social media is basically to help them go through the day or they will lose their mind. Facebook and other social media platforms have become their source of strength and therapy.

There’s no doubt about finding quality information and answer on social media platforms if we know what we are searching for. My point however is, you cannot depend or survive on social media alone as the precise reference point of gathering strength in dealing with the highly complex inner struggles of your life.

 

The rise of true kingdom community

There has to be a real-time community where we can truly connect physically and spiritually in searching and receiving the pure kingdom truth that can build and enhance our sense of community, integration, transformation and restoration.

The days ahead of us requires that the church becomes a powerful kingdom community center where individuals and families alike can come to and find strength and hope for the days ahead.

The future is in your past

Back to my main point, our childhood is one of the most influential reality still shaping our present existence. If we don’t effectively handle this aspect of our past that is still a threat to us today, I am afraid, it will continue to predict and shape the very outcome of our future regardless of the prophetic team or title we give to the coming year.

Experience, good or bad is some of the best tools heaven employs to refine and perfect all that is required to shape us into what we’ve been designed for in life. Furthermore, if we’ve not been taught how to positively make use of the various experiences of our lives either good or bad, there is the possibility that we can be found to be perpetually trapped in the negative experience and circumstances of our past.

In the next few days, we will be stepping into 2016. And as usual, many already have sets of objective, purpose and plans for the coming year. This is a very good discipline that encourages motivation, focus and direction as a believer. Life’s development is designed by a sustained practice of movement towards a set goal and objective.

The word of the lord enjoys every believer to discover their place and purpose in life. Not until we have fully grasped the very essence of our life and the purpose why we are born into the environment we find ourselves, we will certainly not have the precise sense of objective and direction towards the place of our ordained prophetic assignment.

if you however fall into this category of those who through knowledge or providence are able to identify, and are able to move towards a set objective for the coming year, I salute you and will encourage you to keep focused and pace with that which you have set before yourself.

The father has a placed for you in the future if you will return to the past

However, there is another category of individuals who may not be as certain and clear with regards to what the future, 2016 holds for them. By the way, this group I am referring to are not just limited to the unsaved folks. This includes Christians and even those in leadership position if you ask me.

And the reason for this is not because these individuals lack knowledge or understanding with regards to how to dream or make things happen. Nor is that they don’t know how to pray. No, some of the people I am referring to here to some degree are seen to have achieved some level of ‘success’ in life and ministry.

 However, deep within some of these men and women, there is a subtle, brutal ranging battle within them that is almost seeking to enslave them to their past pattern of thinking.

The past is a crucial part of any person that cannot be wiped off or wished away. We can, however gain vital lessons that can help our development or that of another through the appropriation of the right lessons even though these lessons may sometimes expose us to very deep emotional and psychological pain for a season.

The power of pain

Pain is good if it will led to us winning and breakthrough in our immediate future. Yes, the story of some of our past is quite difficult to tell or share. However, the only way we can conquer those feelings of abuse, misuse, injustice, miss future, and marginalization, the loss of a very close family in our childhood or teenage life is by confronting them in the spirit of true forgiveness. If the memory of our past still hurts and hunts us, it means that we have not truly learned what forgiveness is all about, and therefore, we are not ready to advance into the future.

If we are yet to let go of those inner issues of our hearts that causes us so much pain and depression, we are then saying we are not ready to step into the future. Remember, the future is not a calendar year. It is the decision we make daily to leave behind what holds us back yesterday.

As long as you still feel the sense of guilt, neediness and victimization mentality, it means there’s still a major stronghold erected within the invisible wall of your mind that needs to be pulled down. These strongholds are like parasites that feeds on every negative thought and feeling you allow within your soul.

For example, the thought of fear and rejection will build or enhance the stronghold of insecurity and uncertainty. The motivation to step into new areas of life will be interpreted as a challenge from such a person.

When you condone negative thoughts and feelings

They are forever in opposition to change. When you condone the thought of rejection, you will see your best friend and ally as an enemy who is playing to attack you. Meaning that you interpret people’s good will from a suspicious negative perspective. This kind of people eventually becomes isolated and of cause, prone to satanic or demonic attacks.

The enemy keeps the pressure of attacking their thought and emotion of these people until he tries to snuff every ounce of hope, faith and love out of their lives. The point I am making here underscores the fact that seemly activity towards a goal does not necessarily define progress and fulfillment in a life that is still trapped by his or her past.

 Some of the things we see or even term as great achievements today in the body of Christ are actually fig leaves we employ to cover our inner nakedness and shame. As individuals suffer insecurity and dysfunctional behavioral challenges, so does a family, community and the larger society. The inability to embrace a healthy emotional or spiritual life can damage, and is damaging the very structure of society.

 This is a position many, especially within the body of Christ will not like to acknowledge or deal with due to levels of difficulty strongholds they will have to confront.

Secondly, the type of entertainment setup pattern of worship in most church community those not allow for such kind of serious issues. And if such issue shows up unnoticed, we relegate them to individuals without the training and skill to handle them. This kind of attitude is indirectly telling the people to keep their problem.

Why some cannot emotionally free in our church settings

While we may preach and teach the truth, the kind of administrative structure within this gathering does not encourage individuals to come forward in sharing the deepest secrets of their lives. The only time people seem to be willing to share something in our church community is when they have a testimony of a job promotion or financial increase unfortunately.

Why? That is the kind of culture set in the house by the leadership. More so, those who in the past have dared to share something that tends to make the church look or sound incompetent was immediately shut down. Therefore, people will rather keep silent with their challenge and emotional struggles because they don’t want to be seen as though they lack faith, vision and Revelational understanding to mention a few.

I felt identifying with this group of people in terms of trying to make sense of their inner struggles and condition will give them a sense of hope, faith, love and courage they need first to adequately understand what is happening to them and take the necessary step to move out of the prison of past emotional bondage.

Some of the things I have learned about people is that everyone is looking for someone who they can truly share some of the deep issues troubling their hearts. They just need a listening ear.  Due to the lack of sincerity and openness most especially in the church community, many have remained trapped in the prison of the past; they are dying silently out of loneliness and self-rejection.

Because we live in society that only thrives on lies and deception, it has become even more difficult today to actually find those who are willing to acknowledge that we have issues that requires serious assistance even among people of the way.

 I know what I am taking about

I can talk about this because I have been in that state of life where the thought of ending your life crosses your mind even as a believer. Depression becomes your companion, fear takes the place of faith. The voice of hopelessness becomes almost stronger than the voice of hope and faith. Hate almost pushes away your inherent nature of love by the power of deliverance manifest to pull one out of such dark alley.

Dealing with the complex dysfunctional realities of our lives could be highly challenging if there is a lack of truth and the unwillingness to confront the past reality of our lives.

I struggled to make sense of the condition that seem to have trapped me with little or no answer even after praying. While you are among people, the sense of emptiness and loneliness flood your mind without knowing what to do until there was a divine intervention.

The impact of what I am sharing takes more than the general bible knowledge and response you may get from a friend or fellow church members am afraid.  Understanding who you are in the light of truth is one the most important aspect in stepping into the zone reality of lasting freedom. Yes, freedom and liberty in Christ is what gives you the courage to step out of that inner conflict no one but you can see.

The future is what you make of it today

As you get yourself ready for the coming season, allow me to highlight some point I felt should help you make sense of your future. The days ahead of us all are symbolic of a mountain climbing experience. Those who remain in the valley will be decided for by the circumstances, challenges and evil system of the Age.

 Regardless of who you are, where you are, where you’ve been or what you’ve done, or what someone has done to you; you belong to Christ and him alone! You are never disenfranchised. I need you to be firmly established in some of these facts and truth that will guide you as you press further into 2016, and you need to press into 2016 with the strength of the Holy Spirit.

Here are the things you need to know by revelation:

  1. 1. God, your Heavenly Father knew you before you were born. The fact is, he created you, and set up the circumstances within the environment that now shape what is now termed as your life.

You’ve been destined for a successful life, regardless of your knowledge, what you term as failures or inabilities. He is the one working in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Do you believe this? You need to.

  1. You are not a product of an accident, even if you were born out of wedlock or rape. The circumstances surrounding your birth might not have been right in human eyes. Yet, the Lord used them as the vehicle to Lunch you into this world. Your Heavenly Father, the creator of your life, has the most perfect plan for you regardless of the condition or confusion around you.
  1. The reality of your past memory can be one of the most powerful instruments designed to shape you into your heavenly ordained assignment on earth. Do not allow the enemy to turn what your heavenly father ordained to build and nurture you in displaying his glory for your defeat.
  1. 4. Remember, whichever way you are born, you have an enemy that is relentless in his pursuit to destroy you. Even if you are born into royalty with all the opportunities in life to be whatever you want to be, you will still have enemies and challenges that will try to stop you.

Therefore, only when you live in the revelation of Christ, who is your victory, you will be defeated. Christ is your key and driver into the future.

 Never fill embarrassed about your own challenge, embrace it and use it as the tool the Lord has ordained for you to be the best you’ve been designed for. Note this, all human has their own unique challenges regardless of their admission or not.

  1. 5. Progress is not about the big things done or achieved as good as they may be. Progress is about gaining that sense of:
  1. a) MEANING TO LIFE
  2. b) PURPOSE FOR EXISTENCE
  3. c) FULFILLMENT WITH WHO YOU

ARE AND WHAT YOU ATE SENT TO DO

  1. d) RIGHTEOUSNESS PEACE AND JOY IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
  1. 6. NEVER RUN WITH THE PACE OF OTHERS. BE ENCOURAGED AND MOTIVATED BY WHAT YOU SEE OTHERS DO OR ACHIEVE, BUT NEVER TRY TO COPY THEM, BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT GRACED NOR GIFTED TO DO WHAT THEY DO, AND MORE SO, YOU WILL ONLY BE REWARDED FOR YOUR OWN GIVEN ASSIGNMENT.
  1. THE FUTURE IS NOT A PLACE BUT THE PERSON OF CHRIST. IF YOU ARE IN CHRIST, YOUR FUTURE WILL NOT ONLY BE SECURED BUT FULFILLING.
  1. REMBER THAT PROPHECY ARE NOT MERE WORDS AND THEY CANNOT FULFILL THEMSELVES. THE KEY IS, THE TESTIMONY OF CHRIST IS THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY.  THERE, KEEP THE TESTIMONY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST ALIVE IN YOUR LIFE AND YOU WILL BE A LIVING FULFILLMENT OF EVERY PROPHETIC WORD ORDAINED FOR YOUR LIFE AND COMMUNITY.

 Please remember that your future is in Christ and not in the crisis of the days head

Have a fulfilling and prosperous 2016

The intent of apostolic faith

 

 

 the intent of apostolic faith

                                     The intent of apostolic faith

                                           Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

Some few months back, the lord granted me the pleasure of  accessing certain truths regarding what is defined in the word of God as corporate faith; and I think some of the values shared in those words are truly enlightened principles that can accelerate the life’s journey of anyone traveling on the road to Zion in this new day. I certainly do recommend that you take the time out to read them on my blogpost.

Lately, the lord has been pulling my attention again to reexamine another frequency of his truth in the scriptures that expatiate on the character nature of faith. I would assume the Father is impressing this truth to me in particular due to the nature of the days we find ourselves and the kind of posture of heart require if we must advance to the next mountain of his pleasure.

We have entered an era where two opposite and opposing principles are living side by side, and we are required to precisely and effectively define and understand the principle and value model we have subconsciously subscribe to in other to accurately determine the source of our heart purpose and intent.

This deliberate spiritual scrutiny is highly crucial in particular for those who intend to successfully transit in what is today known as the third day ministry lifestyle. Intention, purpose and objective can be subtly corrupt if the source that feed our spirit or soul start reflecting an iota of an ambitious undertone. I cannot overemphasize this. In my almost three decades of ministry, I have discovered that it is so easy to slip from the center-point of divine intent, and this is because of one single deadly poison known as insecurity. One of the greatest qualities of a true follower of the lamb is to be totally secure in him. Insecurity is the breeding ground for all forms of fear and self-centered ambitions.

You will notice in genesis that the lord had already finished his work before he created Adam to dress it. The word dress means to maintain. Maintenance suggest that something is already in existence that only needs to be kept in a particular state or condition.  There are substance both in the spiritual and natural sphere the lord has designed man to maintain. This idea mean to give it life and direction through our presence and visibility.  The first man, Adam shifted from the center point, and therefore failed from his core Assignment which was to maintain the garden. The garden was his wife and every other thing that secure her purpose and assignment in God.

While he had the power and authority to name and nature creatures, he however failed to stop the enemy from having a deadly conversation with his (assignment) wife. Therefore, if we understand that our assignment is more of a spiritual stand in establishing that which the Lord has already brought forth, it eradicate the burden of trying to do something for God.

 Our position is not to try to do ‘things’ but to become what we have been originally designed and ordained to reflect through the image and likeness of the Father reflecting in our lifestyle conduct. Those who go around in trying to create (ministry) thing for themselves because they have become so insecure, then it only proves that something has to be urgently fixed within the dysfunctional reality of their soul.

 While our perceived assignment may reflect a lot of good creative intentions to the natural sight, when they are however scrutinized under a strong prophetic office, we see the shadow of fear, insecurity and illegitimate leadership manipulation as the driver of what we claim to be given by the Lord.

One can have a good intention with a subliminal corrupt agenda. This directly answers the question why very good people in the house of God ends up been corrupt. Corruption of life and ministry is a direct reflection of a slit shift of the heart from the center point. The centerpint of any person or assignment is remaining in the knowledge of becoming like Christ in his true essence, and not necessarily what you have built or achieve in his name. Kingdom centered intent are byproduct of a life that has totally embrace not just the pathway of the cross, but the very essence of the ascended lifestyle.

 If that which is pursuit in the name of God or ministry has not first become a sacrificial burnt offering, the ‘things’ we define to be ministry or great achievements in life will become the very instrument that corrupts the heart.  The definition of idolatry today is not farfetched from the very things we spiritually pursue even in our prayers before God. if the heart is merely seeking to serve Intent without us first capturing the ideology that we are the first and the only work he desire to perfect in the earth, we risk losing the heartbeat of the Fathers prophetic intent, which is a life that has (ascended) risen to him as a living smoke from the burnt offering of the altar of our lives. This is the work of the third day ministry. 

 There is a deception or should I say, a delusion that assumes that the Father is only pleased with what we have achieved or build in his name for the world to behold, most especially when they look grand and lofty. While we most seek to pursuit the pleasure of the father through the expression of what we have been given the grace to construct as portals of his divine expression in the earth, we should never forget that what the Lord is truly searching for is a soul that has willingly offer itself to be beheaded on the altar of the Father’s pleasure.

 These kinds of men are women are the ones Christ can truly and confidently place his life headship upon. The knowledge of what the father seeks for amidst the present darkness will continue to define and separate the two characters of lives found today within the body. As the Spirit of the lord continues to impress these demands on us, we all have the duty to be determined in offering him the pleasure of trust, obedience and sacrifice daily.

 As we see the increase of the activity of darkness manifest in various forms and shape across the globe, we should not be alarm of their threats because there is right now a fresh release of the spirit of supplication and intercession to seek the Lord more than ever before.

 The famine of truth and lack of the presence of the Lord the church had faced in the past decade is coming to a closure, and we are been given the opportunity again to partake of the season of refreshing coming from the presence of the Father.  This release of the grace to pray and seek the face of the Lord will allow the heart to be thoroughly threshed in readiness of to receive an update revelational understanding of the spirit of an overcomer admits the present darkness.

The demand to update and upgrade the quality of our faith to the standard that will make for our advancement is a major highlight in the mind of the Lord.  As a sojourner, seeking passage through time into the eternal realm, we need not only to be reminded frequently of the process and value standard required of us in our mission on earth, but to also learn to keep our eyes on the end of our journey so that we are able to persevere in times of tribulations and adversities. At each season of our migration into that ascended preferred life in Christ, we are introduced to different realities of faith.

Since faith is the core substance that allows us to please God, it becomes highly important for us to understand what pleases him at each injunction of our faith. What pleased him yesterday may be his displeasure today. Journeying into the things of the spirit is an unending reality that requires a childlike attitude daily from us in approaching the spiritual things.

 Therefore, recently again, the good lord caused me to peach my tent by Hebrews chapter 11:27, and as a sat, in search of the revelation and mysteries lucked within the scripture, I suddenly became aware of certain keys laying around for anyone who has responded to the summoning of the Spirit of the Father.

It seem the more we try to read and understand the scripture through the template of what men today tag as the kingdom truth, the more frustrated we have become for the reason that our thought pattern and its process of comprehension is still highly influenced by the knowledge of the three of good and evil.  Many among highly notable preachers and teachers of the word of God today have decided to settle for what I’ll like to refer to as an echo of other preacher word to survive and sustain their ministry.

There is absolutely nothing wrong in listening or even borrowing others concept of knowledge of the word as long as we recognize and acknowledge where they came from. My point is, those who have become lazy and too busy to labor in the place of sacrificing their time and space to pray and meditate on the values of seeking the kingdom first, and above all else should not think the lord will cheaply give them access into the kingdom keys of the third day portal.

Both the cultural environment and operational standard of the third day’s ministry is totally different from how we have viewed, received and function in our earlier ministry camps. While it’s easy to learn and speak the language of the third day ministry, you will however not be able to produce its fruit.

The process it takes to search, seek and discover the knowledge key to access the current mind of the Lord is found in the place of complete blindness to your former operational perception, and the readiness to shut down for a season until your sight is restored through the ministry of another ordained to lead you into the new day.

The template of how you think and see the word of God in regards to its interpretation and benefit has to shift from self-enrichment to Christ been magnified and glorified in your life first, and then through your life to the rest of the world. There are those who have been sent ahead of you to lead and guide you into what you are yet to see. Wearing the cloak of humility is a powerful transitional attitude character that will accelerate you into the next realm of heaven’s designed plan for your life.

The lord is reinventing the framework of our ideology and theology in other for his restored truth to perfectly seat without our soul fighting for space. What the Lord is saying and birthing in this new era demand a complete reorientation of how we see and understand the word who is the personification of Christ. Whatever you think you have attained or achieve for God should be laid as a burnt offering altar for the sacrifice of a new day that will be emerging from the smoke of the pleasure offering of your life raising to the throne the Father.

 The Lord will not cheaply offer you access into what someone else has defined to you as Gods thing. You need to come up higher into the place of sight and understanding to comprehend the new spiritual path created for those who are dead to their own glory.

The mind of the Father is wider and bigger than the entire universe put together a million times. Yet, it could be the closest experience we could ever have we there is a cultivation of the right attitude to listen and discern the lord’s voice.

The word of God is only living and alive only to those who have become completely blind and totally dead to the ways and pattern of this world. Within this pages of the word are journeys you must embark if you desire to see things that are made for your reformation and transformation.

I discovered that the scripture itself is only a portal that introduces us THE ONE CALL THE LIVING WORD. Until a man comes to the end of himself he cannot be introduced to his designed destiny deep within the heart of the father.  Therefore, the unlocking of certain spiritual doors as you open the pages of the word of God is highly crucial to the feeding of your Spiritman, and the deliverance of your soul from the image and culture of Sin. Back to Moses.

Redefining your new beginning for 2015

REDEFINING YOUR NEW SEASON

New beginning in God are current position governed by the spiritual timing that certain demand and desire of heaven be accomplish in the mortal realm. New beginnings are the position of entering into the next grand reality of the Father’s Requirement as we press into Christ.

REDEFINING YOUR NEW BEGINNING FOR 2015
A word of admonition for the ecclesia in 2015

By Isaiah-Phillips

Our prophetic compass for 2015

I am as strong now as I was when Moses sent me on that journey, and I can still travel and fight as well as I could then. 12So give me the hill country that the LORD promised me. You will remember that as scouts we found the descendants of Anak living there in great, walled towns. But if the LORD is with me, I will drive them out of the land, just as the LORD said.” Joshua 14:11-12

The lord through his continuous speaking has brought us to a (now) new moment in his demand for our lives. The current external look of things across the globe could spell more confusion and destruction, and certainly, we are going to witness more of that across cities.

The word of God already for warns us that has humanity gets closer towards the end of all things, we are going to witness an increase in earth Groaning’s, birth pangs and an unprecedented darkness and destruction across nations. But the Father also promised to keep his own from the hour of destruction. As we know, fear and confusion is one of Satan’s greatest weapons, and he uses them effectively to stop those who are yet to have a personal encounter with the Lord.

The further you and I press into that place call the secret place of the most high, the more we find security in Christ. Our security is certainly not in a place, but in the person of Christ. It is certainly clear that there is no secure place on the earth. Places we use to think are secure for holiday have today become the very prime target of the enemy. We need to learn to develop an atmosphere that builds a sense of safety and security within Christ.

Overcoming the spirit of fear

Therefore, the disasters, famines and mass killings of our time really should not be what define our response to life. We should not allow fear to stop or cripple our destiny from becoming a true reality. Our pursuit should rather be driven in pure faith and the wisdom of the Father’s prophetic desire and demand for our family, community, city, and this generation becomes a true reality, even if it demands that we go through the valley of the shadow of death.

We should never be afraid, for God has not given to us the spirit of fear. Rather, we should be that generation of saints, who are spiritually positioned, motivated, energized and competent enough in building the ark of the Lord’s pleasure and safety for a company of those who will listen to the voice of redemption.

Anyone who is properly disciple of the Lord in this season of great darkness, and are in tune to the frequency of heavens broadcast will certainly agree that we are in one of the most exciting seasons since the birth of creation. The density of the speakings of Heaven is upon your life, family, and community. You should not be discouraged or stopped by the lustful desire of the flesh, nor by the mass killings are we witnessing across cities and regions of the earth.

For the Lord, has not given to us the spirit of fear, but of love and power, and soundness of mind to know how to precisely listen and respond to the complex issues around us. This period is defined by a much paradox that we must understand. We cannot afford to only see one side of an event without insight to what is happening on the other side. The nature of the cherubim with multiple eyes and the ability to fly in all directions at the same time must be precisely built within our spirit man. We shall carefully consider this concept of understanding in our subsequent article.

Suffice to say, when the Lord begins to talk about a new beginning, it is crucial we understand that he is not necessarily referring to the starting afresh of something, even though that may be necessary in some cases. A new beginning with God is current position governed by the spiritual timing that certain demand and desire of heaven accomplished in the mortal realm. New beginnings are the position of entering the next grand reality of the Father’s Requirement as we press into Christ.

It could be to unfold afresh what he said to us at his invitation to journey with him. New beginning is ‘the adding of flesh to the current adjusted born structure coming alive within us, like we see depicted in the vision of prophet Ezekiel at the valley filled with dry born.

Furthermore, it could be a position of kick starting an abandoned project like we see in the day of Ezra and Nehemiah. It can also mean the readiness to engage and confront certain lingering issues in our lives, family, or community. It could be a time to put to an end an obsolete religious or humanistic system that has kept the people in bondage for a long period.

New beginning could personally mean a time to finally let go, and allow the ministry of the Holy Spirt to help you deal with that habitual sin that has almost destroyed your life, family, and career. It could also mean a time to forgive so you can be free from every form of resentment and anger. New beginnings are exciting moments to learn to listen and follow the next required demand of the Lord.

Defining our current position

A continuous definition of where we are as the ecclesia either from a personal or corporate position, in my opinion, is extremely crucial to where we are heading. The lord gave us a word last year regarding the marching order of this new day, and I already can see the pathway opening up into this next season. It is certainly clear that the days ahead will require a new updated understanding regarding some of the basic kingdom principles and models learned in our initial introduction to this third day reformation in the early 90s.

I sense that the Lord is opening a new portal to the revelation knowledge of him being the Lord of Host and the mighty warrior. The Lord revealed himself differently at various seasons of his dealings in the lives of the patriarchs. Those revelations became the weapon and the new marching order for the patriarchs. To successfully step into the next required location, we certainly need to know how he is currently revealing himself to us and this generation.

The Lord has not stopped revealing or speaking regarding his prophetic activity and agenda for your life, family, and generation. If we incline our ears and open our heart in the purity of his voice will shall hear and know his prophetic direction.
However, for us to adequately walk in the newness of his current reality, we must adjust our current imperfect understanding of Christ and the false sense of achievement we have built. I will be speaking more about the concept of the garment the Lord will have us where in terms of what we are being called to.

But allow me to pass this message to you, especially if you find yourself struggling, worried and afraid to step into what the Lord is requiring from you in this season. Fixing your eyes on the Lord Jesus Christ is the most effective antidote in dealing with fear, discouragement and disappointments, and other forms of uncertainties you may have to face on this journey pathway.

Many, including church leaders today is deeply troubled and pressured about many complex subjects they seem not to have the answer and direction for guidance, particularly in the lifetimes of their followers. It seems the heaven’s voice is shut down on them. Well, the Lord is speaking to us about new beginnings, and I am sure the word of the Lord can give us insight regarding what to do about where we are now if we have what is known as the hearing ears and the seeing eye.

Christ, the measure of our achievement

The summary of our purpose in life and ministry is not really about what we’ve been able to achieve for God, but who we are becoming in Christ Jesus. Fixing your eye on the lord is the most important thing you can do in this now season. The enemy is using various issues happening around our lives in trying to block, intimidate and frustrate our love, faith, and hope in God’s prophetic program. Falling in love with the word of God afresh, and cultivating the attitude of meditation on the scriptures you read is a powerful spiritual tool.

Positioning your heart in prayer and fasting will certainly enhance your spiritual vision and understanding. Once the enemy can succeed in distracting us from the place of the word, prayer and meditation, our heart become vulnerable to the attack of darkness.

The Lord is speaking regarding those areas we desire to hear him, but we must be precisely located and positioned where we can hear his voice without distortion. We need to remind ourselves that the Lord is speaking loud and clear in the seemingly confusing issues around, and we have to develop the discipline to be still, listen and accurately respond to the voice. Whatever we’ve been called to build on the earth in terms of family or ministry should be measured up to the very quality life and standard of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our success as followers of the lamb is not to be assessed by the magnitude of what we have achieved, as important as this maybe before the Lord. It is my firm believes that true and lasting success is a byproduct of a restored and transformed life in Christ. Christ is the completeness and perfection of all things in this life and the one to come. This understanding sets the guideline for our advancement into the next frontier of the Fathers prophetic mandate. New seasons in the Spirit are new emphasis of development and maturity into the person of Christ.

Gaining insight into the new

Therefore, stepping into a new season (the current Approved location of the Lord) demands a deeper spiritual insight into Christ life and his kingdom. Knowledge into the closure of a once approved season, and the opening pathway that led into the next season, in my opinion, is one of the most difficult spiritually learned acts today. Often, when we sense the Lord is putting a closure to what was formally approved and validated by him, we find it highly challenging to immediately make the necessary adjustment to shift and respond to his voice.

The success or failure of the past, and of course, the concern of the unknown new declared season of the Lord tend to keep us crippled in our current situation or position. Moving into God’s ordained plan for your life, family or community should come with an apostolic faith attitude; Meaning that your governing life’s philosophy is not one that is seeking to run and escape from the challenges of life but to confront them with the power of kingdom truth.

An governmental, apostolic response to life issues is the only precise template that guarantees maximum spiritual breakthrough and advancement in the days like ours. This configuration of faith brings to bear the entire necessary tool needed to accomplish your ordained purpose. An attitude of fear and the lack of confidence in what the Lord has spoken has indeed emboldened the enemy to continue to stop many from rising to fulfill their ordained mandate for this generation.

The lord is calling you and I to see what he is doing in this new day, and his desire for us is to leave that seemly comfortable nest of religion and humanistic ideology built within our soul faculty. There is absolutely no way we will be able to step into new dimensions without trading our past achievements for what is ahead.

Our dependence on the energy, resource and relationships given or acquired for the building of what we may now term as a productive and successful assignment is often seen to become the very hindrance and obstacles to the next required demand of the Lord for our lives and ministries. A continuous attitude of undressing the mind from self-dependence, and its rigid old ways of seeing and doing things is one of the ways of embracing lasting change. This attitude opens our spirits to see and accept the current emphasis of our faith development.

Our attitude or heart quality in responding to the newness of the speakings and the demand of the Lord is crucial not just for how we step into the new things of the Lord, but also to the forceful movement of the Lords prophetic activity around our lives and the society.

Breaking away from the old wineskin

Another point worth noticing is, when we finally find the grace and mercy of God to move into his new day, we are found to be attached with issues or things we ought to have left behind. It is highly important to understand that you cannot carry things that have become disapproved before the Lord into his next plan for us.

Sometimes, we are seen to be Rebekah, who has found the favor to become the wife of the man carrying the prophetic promised seed of the nation of Israel seating on a stolen household god of her father. In some other cases, we are found in the same religious position Peter found himself, according to Acts 10.

God was about to use him to pioneer a powerful apostolic movement among the Gentile world, yet, this great apostle of the lamb was found to still be struggling with the old Jewish dietary religious stronghold order. I am sure you can relate to the position of a man like Peter. The three trainings he got from the Lord was certainly not enough to remove the rigid, religious template his life has been accustomed to.

Asking him to do what was once seen an abomination is a true challenge of his faith in the current reality of the demand of the father. But the fact that he was able to hear and recognize who was speaking to him was an advantage, at least, to make the right decision to adjust his position. What is it in your life now that you can point to as a number one hindrance to stepping into what the Lord is requiring? If you can identify it, then you are on your way to a major spiritual breakthrough, but if you cannot, you need to seek the face of the Lord to open your eyes to see it.

We certainly cannot step into a new era with a prideful attachment mentality on the old concept of seeing and doing things. We need for a certain to believe the Lord for an updated grace to see, hear, know, and understand his voice with profound clarity, so we don’t find ourselves standing against what the Lord is calling for in this new day. Indeed, the Lord will not pour his new wine into an old wineskin. This is an ancient principle that is currently being highlighted in the now moment of God. Let’s believe and agree with the father’s grand design as he call’s us into his new beginning.

the rediscovery of faith part 2

Faith by nature is a powerful movement towards the preferred position of the Spirit. Detaching from what we have learned and experience from our previous walk with God can be highly challenging if our orientation does not change drastically

Faith by nature is a powerful movement towards the preferred position of the Spirit. Detaching from what we have learned and experience from our previous walk with God can be highly challenging if our orientation does not change drastically

Faith, the living seed of spiritual substance

1Now faith is [the] substantiating£ of things hoped for, [the] conviction of things not seen. 2For in [the power of] this the elders have obtained testimony. 3By faith we apprehend that the worlds were framed by [the] word of God, so that that which is seen should not take its origin from things which appear.

We have already established the fact that nobody can truly know or please God without the activation or coming alive of the seed of faith. Why? Faith is that living seed or spiritual substance if you will, that quickens to life the dead spirit of men into reality, or what can be call the knowability of his creator. All humans carry within them the seed of God’s faith even though they may be ignorant of it due to their fallen status.

This is one of the reasons why the Lord through the nature and life of the second man, the last Adam had to go through the process of birth, death, burial, resurrection and ascension to awaken the slumbering spirit of creation back to Gods consciousness. Having said this, faith does more than just to weaken our dead spirit. It carries the substance to effectively take us through the school of development and perfect of our spirit-man to the point that it can confidently arrive at the point of full stature in Christ. {Ephe 4}

The Lord is bringing his people into the realm of that which is yet to be seen or apprehended from past knowledge or experience of faith. The evidence of what Jude calls the common {corporate} faith is becoming a true reality in our day. This concept of faith is anchored on the spirit of a hope, locked in the future of the salvation that is about to be revealed in Christ. It is to this intent that God imprisoned creation in the hope that when the ecclesia start to come into the revelational understanding of her prophetic objective as an agent to facilitate the redemption of creation from bondage that this faith will become more active.

It is a known fact that hope lives in the future realm, and faith bridges that gap between what is seen to the unseen reality. Paul further tells us that faith has become the evidence or proves that what you hope is a living reality in Christ. Now, when you read scriptures like this, it’s so easy to slide back into the old concept of interpretation, which obviously limit the spirit of your mind from fully grasping what the Lord intends to show you in his progressive truth. Let’s examine an ageless truth from God’s current speaking.

 The misconception of faith in the past charismatic move of the 80s

Between early 80s, and late 90s, the charismatic Pentecostal movement enjoyed a season of  refreshing, ordained to prepare the (heart) ground for Gods apostolic agenda in regards to that which was about to be unleashed upon nations in the coming decade.  Few Believer’s in that period neither comprehended nor gave heed to the prophetic purpose and direction of was about to be released. What was released was confined to a merely blessing, which it was, but they never saw the bigger picture of what the Lord wanted to achieve through the blessing.

Up until that time, the organized church system had been in a state of spiritual drought and famine even though the Lord had been moving mightily among his called out people. Many have spent countless seasons praying and interceding for a fresh outpouring of the Spirit of God to change the spiritual landscape of the church and the nations. A visitation of the spirit, as they call it back then was desperately needed, especially when one considered the backdrop of events during those dark periods across the continents.

Most parts of Africa at that time where just gaining their independence From the imperialist nations, even though people back then tends to be content with the little they had, yet poverty was on the increase; a campaign for a more progressive social freedom was on the increase amongst young adults back then in America.

Many in Europe were also searching for some meaning to their lives especially after going through so much destabilization and economic recession. While the moral of many nations where down, Many where seeking the face of the Lord to do something new.

The outpouring of the Spirit could not have come at a better time, yet, very few understood the intention of the lord regarding this release. The ignorance displayed by the front line leaders was just the right opportunity the enemy needed to distract, derail and manipulate the leaders from precisely administrating this great season of refreshing from the Lord.

The release of the charismatic spirit and giftens was ordained to usher the Church into a season of divine training and readiness in pressing unto the reality of the kingdom behind the veil. However, the unbridled and undisciplined life of many in the church allowed the flesh to hijack the  move until that which was intended to bring hope and a renewed sense of faith became repulsive to the Father. The gifts and what it could reproduce had almost replaced the purpose and heart of God, the giver.

 The blessing also brought judgment

The embracing of the charismatic word of faith move of no doubt, Established many in the area of getting to know the benefits of salvation. It also boasted the faith of many to exercise their priestly authority in areas of healing, miracle, gift of prophesy and financial prosperity to mention a few.

This season of bliss however, came with so much excesses and imbalance understanding of Gods plan due to the lack of a clear knowledge of the Fathers prophetic Agenda for that season and the coming future.

While it was God’s plan to bless, heal and prosper his people, they however, missed the whole purpose and objective of the blessing or release of the Spirit to the point that this misrepresentation of purpose became the very object that brought the church to the place of disgrace and disrepute.   While many spiritual leader back then stepped into what can be term as power gifts, and where able to build very lofty structures due to the financial gain that flowed into the church. Many, however, missed the mark to the point that a lot of Christian leaders in America back then where indicted by state official for financial malpractice.

How can what was legitimately given by God bring so much shame and misrepresentation to the name of the Lord. Well, the answer carries many faces. Suffice to say, the issue of zeal without knowledge, the lack of accountability and the issue of an circumcised and consecrated heart played a major role. For my people perish for lack of the knowledge of Divine plan and direction. Every time we allow ignorance to becloud our judgment of the sacred things of the Spirit, we often find ourselves misrepresenting Gods purpose.

It is said that when there is no clear insight Regarding the Fathers prophetic program, abuse and misrepresentation becomes the result.  We are highlighting this issue because we about to step into another season of a great release that will further take us higher in the reality of Christ prophetic agenda in the earth, and we cannot afford to make the same mistake made in the past.

 Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God

The present speaking of God as we have established is releasing a new sense of faith to hear Gods voice precisely from a higher position of the Spirit. If faith does come by hearing and hearing by the word of God, we should then precisely ask ourselves what is the component and quality of the word we are hearing today because that is what will eventually determine the direction and emphasis of our faith understanding.

The next question we should be asking is, are we listening or feeding on that word with the same old paradigm of processing the word of the Lord, because if we do, our faith then becomes benchmarked by the dramatic fire or the wild-wind experience like prophet Elijah had at the backside of the wilderness while the Lord was waiting for him in that still small voice.

Are we responding to the voice of God by running back to Eli, a priesthood that has lost legitimacy and the illuminating light of the speaking of God? Moving into the current atmosphere of Speaking of God of no doubt releases the ‘now faith’ needed to develop, advance and please the Father.  Faith is forever proceeding from the throne of the father into the hearts of those who have steadfastly inclined their ears to listen to the now proclamation and declaration of the Spirit.

Faith by nature is a powerful movement towards the preferred position of the Spirit. Detaching from what we have learned and experience from our previous walk with God can be highly challenging if our orientation does not change drastically. We need to constantly remind ourselves and the company we belong that faith was never given so that we could merely have things or build a name for ourselves or ministry.

Faith was given to help us walk with him so that one day we may arrive into his fullness.  If you sincerely desire to see your faith grow and develop, start by feeding your spiritman with quality materials that challenges your current state of spirituality. When i say prophetic, I am referring to the dispensing or the administration of all of the purposes of the Fathers desire and intent for the precise manifestation of his kingdom through your life.

 Faith is the forerunner of the speaking of Heaven. There is so much heaven is declaring regarding the divine counsel of the Father but there is little faith within the hearts of the people of God to truly believe and accept. From personal experience I discovered that most of what is being declared today, especially in the reformation move are truly sounding nice, idealistic and in most cases highly technical to the hearings of believers. Why?  Their faith is still anchored on past experience and position of the truth. They need to allow their faith to die to old position experienced at Bethel, and be awakened in the newness of the revelation knowledge of (the God of Bethel) El-Bethel.

 The Spirit of the Lord is calling a remnant of people to a new day of elevated understanding of truth that has been misunderstood and therefore misinterpreted in the past. To proceed further, we have to change out old wineskin; a new sense of light must dawn on every facet of our spiritual understanding. The scale of our inner blindness must fall off for you and me to see what the Lord is showing us in the now faith.

 Growing in understanding

In our developmental stage, we were taught that ‘thing’ we hope for are related to material or emotional needs. While this may carry some iota of truth, it does not however fully reflect the full revelational meaning of this scripture. The word ‘things’ we hope for relates to divine materials or components that defines the building blocks of our spiritual (life) substance. 1Corinthians chapter 2. Paul extensively spoke about the things of the Spirit here. I will encourage you to spend time in both studying and meditating on the verse because it will certainly shed light on what I am trying to communicate by the Spirit.

There are things in In Christ waiting for us to Apprehend and appropriate in other to fully reflect the new life or nature of our ascended image and identity.  Therefore, as we step into the border of the days of the coming of the Son of man, we need to upgrade our definition of faith, love and hope.  If you have been journeying in this season of restored truth, you will agree with me that the Lord is correcting understanding and perceptions so as to get us in the right spiritual frame of mind. In fact, one of the major emphasis been amplified is that the quality of your life in trust and obedience to Gods will defines a great deal the quality standard of your faith.

Therefore, the more spiritually mature you become the more your faith gets redefined, upgraded and transformed into a higher divine lifestyle. In other words, as the divine life within the seed of faith grows and developing in your spirit, the more you become transcend in your earthly existence as you begin to reflect the image and likeness of God which we have established that it is not a figure as it where, but a quality of life in the Spirit.

This concept of faith we are coming into will enable us to fully represent and manifest the very life and glory of Christ here on earth just has Jesus Christ represented the life and desire of his Father while on earth. There is a faith we are being baptized into that will cause every son of God to stand and proclaim the bidding of the Lord across Hostile territories and regions without fear of death. This, shared faith, powered by the authority of the ever-increasing kingdom will enable us to bring the work of the Lord to bear across the nations.

A reexamining of your motive, exiting false expectation

When one considers the concept or philosophy of many Christian regarding God or the things of the Spirit you immediately realize that something is fundamentally wrong with their ideology. The idea of a God been there to merely bless and service the needs of his people is totally out of order and unbiblical. Indeed, God as a Father is obligated to fulfill his responsibility of provider and a protector. However, the moment the idea of your Christianity is reduced to a religion that seek to be merely blessed, enlightened and bring good fortune to you as a follower, you have then given the enemy an opportunity to corrupt the purpose of your faith.

 I strongly believe that this is the time people need to be properly taught what true faith is all about so nobody continues to nurse a false expectation about why they should follow the Lord.

In the name of evangelizing the society, many people unfortunately have brought into the wrong message or emphasis regarding the whole purpose of becoming a Christian or serving God. Whatever your idea is about why you need to know the Lord or serve Him can only be reveal to you when your idea or the idea someone puts in your mind comes to a complete death.

There should be any for conflict about the reason why you are a Christian than to totally yield your entire life to him and allow his ordained desired plan for your life to come forth. If you are in the Christian service as a mean to escape poverty, lack, sickness, death or even going to hell; I am afraid, you will have to reconsider your motive because those reason are not authentic enough for following the Lord.

And if your reason is even to have some form of supernatural means or power to help others resolve their problem, unfortunately, your reason is still not founded on the true foundation, All these reasons are what the enemy is looking for in people to corrupt and pervert the intention of the Lord within lives and across the society. While the reasons may sound good or reasonable, they however, those not reflect the accurate footing of a follower of the Lord.

What is your definition of faith?

The word of God abundantly made it clear why we should follow the Lord and what is the genuine reward given to those who hid the call to come after the Lord. More about this idea of the motive of serving the Lord in the Spirit of true faith can be followed in our article on discipleship. I strongly felt I should point out at this point; going back to the issue of redefining our faith. I am not sure what your definition is, but one thing is clear, if our definition or understanding of faith those not tally with comprehensive biblical concept, we are going to soon run into trouble.

Therefore, considering the whole concept and reason for faith I think is a reasonable thing to do more especially, considering the nature of the days we live in where Christians globally are been targeted and killed for their faith. More than ever before, Christians today are likely to be killed for believing in Christ than any other generation.  If we are been guided by clear prophetic direction, we should be ready to face this reality.

This statement is not intended to trigger doubt or fear but to bring us back to the true definition of what is known as biblical apostolic faith. We can no longer live in the state of presuming or assuming regarding one of the most important reasons of our spiritual existence. How many people have been to some church worship centers in Nigeria, Kenya, Sudan or some other regions where hardcore Islamic jihadist have been allowed to lunch attacks, and innocent people have been killed in their hundreds.

My point here is not the fact that people were killed, but how solid is the authenticity of the faith of those who were killed built on the revelation of Christ.  Some may immediately argue that after all they died in the Church therefore they have a one way ticket to heaven.  That indeed maybe right, but my point is, where their faith built and founded on the solid foundation of the reality of Christ, or where they just merely following a man who promised them divine intervention from poverty and financial difficulties. How many today are afraid to go to their worship center, and how many church leaders today are investing millions into securing themselves and church property as if this is the lasting solution.

While precaution must be taken, they however, need to realize that this war is not flesh and blood.  Right from the inception of the church, believers and followers of the Lamb have been killed and murdered. The difference back then is that the faith of the brethren was solidly built on the uncompromising integrity of the revelational knowledge of Christ. Unfortunately, we cannot say the same of how we view or practice faith today. Faith is defined and understood from the harmony of scripture as a core spiritual component that enhances the spiritual movement of a believer from one reality of God to the next. For he that must come to God must believe that he is, and a rewarder of them who diligently seek him.

Hebrews chapter 11:1 tells us what faith is while verse 6 defines to us what faith does. Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.  Both the definition and perception of our understanding regarding the Father, The unfolding of his kingdom and purpose for the Ecclesia in the earth defines to a large degree the quality of your faith.

We cannot separate the quality of faith from the correctness of sound biblical perception and lifestyle.  In other words, the more broad and holistic your understanding becomes regarding the current prophetic demand and direction of the Lord in this season, the more you become perfected in reality of an ascended faith. Faith is defined as the substance of what is hoped for and the very evidence of things not seen. This is one of the most profound statements in the entire scripture in that it captures the very life or essence of true spirituality.

The Journey into the unity of the faith

 The word of God is filled with various unique emphasis and expression regarding the purpose and nature of faith. The epistles highlight to us the unique insight, wisdom and revelational understanding expressed through the apostles shared understanding of kingdom centered faith.  These various dimensions or classes of faith if you will, is something we need to put into relevant context as the Lord brings us into a new season that requires the church to truly function within the concept of what Paul defines as the unity of the Faith.

You will notice in that chapter 4 of Ephesians that Paul did not talk about faith unity but about the unity of the faith. The word, ‘THE’ stands to define and qualify the idea of what he was trying to convey into the spirit of the Church. The statement ‘the faith’ seem to suggest that he was not referring to a faith individuals possessed in engaging the throne of a God over a need, petition or request. The faith is dealing with something that transcends the idea of religious carnal materialistic paradigm. The faith is the confluence of heavens ultimate intend for the ecclesia. It is the place where we become the manifestation of the prayer of our Lord according to John chapter 17.

Having explained this concept, let us however proceed further by saying that we cannot step fully into this season of the unity of ‘the faith’ without walking in the light of the revelation of what is known as the unity of the Spirit. The unity of the Spirit is the premise by which we can correctly and effectively walk in the unity of the faith.  Unity or uniting in the Spirit goes way beyond verbal agreement. it is not about merely agreeing as torching something or an idea. it goes way beyond what defines us a members of the same community or denomination. It is not something we can fathom with our carnal religious frame of thinking.

 The unity of the Spirit is first and foremost uniting with the Spirit of the Son of God. meaning that your life is in total sync with the eternal agenda of heaven. it is that which defines the mystery of the Godhead and operation of their function in perfect oneness. It is the convergence of the sevenfold Spirit of the Lord, walking in perfect symphony to bring to bear heavens desire for creation.

The unity of the Spirit is the foundation by which the Church was birthed on the day of Pentecost, and it remains the key to the perfection of the Church of the last day. Unity of the Spirit is allowing the will of God to be planted within your spirit, and allowing it to be effectively carried out through your behavioral lifestyle within the Ecclesia. It is in this context of understanding that we as individuals can allow the very life of Christ to cause us to love and submit in the Spirit of Gods eternal plan for the ecclesia such that we are able to see pass the weakness or imperfection of the brethren.

 This spirit of unity further defines to us the protocol of divine relationship and kingdom government. The moment we grasp the reason for the existence of the community in the Spirit of unity, we are able to love, respect and submit to each other grace and gifts without friction. Schism and divisions becomes a thing of the past within such body.  From this point on, we are then taking into knowing the role our individual faith plays in the perfecting of the corporate body and the advancement of the prophetic agenda of the Father. it is on this revelational footing you and I are correctly establish and are expected to function.

A picture of the Spirit of Unity

The prophetic image the word of God paints in regards to the life and ministry of the cherubim in the book of Ezekiel and Revelation clearly and accurately defines what the unity of the Spirit is; four living being with four unique character and ministry, yet, functioning in perfect ones is a clear picture of what the Lord is impressing into our hearts of his ecclesia. Anyone who has a passion for the perfecting of the Saints and has come across these scriptures must have pondered and wondered regarding the mystery behind this awesome perfection. Yet, this is a shadow of how the Church will someday function before Christ returns. Therefore, let’s start practicing how to live and function in this community life of faith by submitting and honoring one another.

 There was a faith that united the 120 in the birthplace of the church in the upper-room on the day of Pentecost, and there is a Faith presently being release that is (maturing) unifying the church in the spirit of perfected Sonship. This faith is what will ultimately drive the manifestation of the release of the Spirit of God within his body. The Father said he will pour out his Spirit upon all flesh, and we are in the midst of the prophetic fulfillment in a greater measure.

The outpouring of this spirit that has be coming through the seasons of refreshing to the church will ultimately make available the fullness of the life and nature of Gods character which is the manifestation of his seven fold spirit of truth for every member of his Body to precisely reflect and represent the true meaning of the ecclesia. it is this faith that will eventually breakdown the walls of division and every form of religious stronghold and denominational spirit within the hearts of Gods people.

When you carefully study the word you notice the various use and emphasis of the term faith, which in my opinion was deliberately ordained to gradually lead followers of Christ from one reality of life to the next. The scriptures talked about moving from faith to faith. The nature of faith is transitional; meaning that is carries within its operational life the ability to transport and transform our spiritual experience from one reality to the next. The various position of the church in transition requires deferent concept of learning and exposure in terms of moving unto that perfect day of his appearance.

The journey into God is experienced through the various chapters of faith experience we are introduced to. One position of faith helped our spiritual muscles to develop to move into the next realm. Yet, we have entered into a new day in the transition where what used to work in our former position of spiritual dealings and experience will no longer suffice because the Lord is bringing us into a different new and a higher position in him.

The corporate faith is primarily designed to mature us is forever seeking to lead us into a new spiritual experience where we are able to identify Christ from a new realm. Those who talked, walked and even lived with Christ from one position of faith could not recognize or identify him from a different position. Our pre-resurrection knowledge and experience of Christ becomes obsolete in his post resurrection life. Think about, Christ own very disciples could not recognize him even after taking them through the scriptures. What an understanding we need to come into in this new day of the Lord.

In my experience, balancing this understanding or trying to convey this reality to those who are still babes or have just refused to grow in the things of the Spirit can be highly challenging.  Having said this, I will like you to understand that the church of the Lord is in the midst of a mighty move that is redefining our faith experience at all levels. Like I said earlier, each of the apostles seems to be specialized on a particular concept or branch of faith the Lord will have them inject to his body for the maturing of the saints.

While Paul brought to view what faith itself is made of, Peter, on the other hand, systematically takes us through the process of how the virtue of faith can bring deliverance, salvation and perfection to our once corrupt soul. Abraham showed us how we can kick start faith by completely trusting in the promise of God. Jude talked about faith as the life given source of the community of Gods people. All of these aspects of faith are complete in Christ Jesus, if we truly press unto knowing and pleasing Him.  There will constantly be an addition of the dimensions of faith which will eventually bring us into perfection.

Ascending in the knowledge of Faith

The completion or perfection of the body of Christ requires the various impute of the ascended ministry grace of faith. The insight Paul had regarding faith and other concepts of the Spirit was needed to build a dimension of Christ life within the body so as to bring nourishment to each lacking part. It is highly important that I emphasize that each member of the Body of Christ is expose to a dimension or measure of faith that to some degree has defined their philosophy of understanding the things of the Spirit.

The objective of this kind of faith experience is to create a level of spiritual experience and culture that can benefit the individual as member of the Body of Christ. However, it must be said that it will take another orientation of an ascended truth to shift such emphasis from an individual bases to a more corporate standpoint to be able to function within the sphere of the unity of the faith.

When you study the operational mode of the church, one sees that on an individual level, the church seem to be doing fairly but on a corporate level, we have failed almost completely. Why? The emphasis of the faith being preach or taught does not promote the culture of a unified corporate faith. Most members of the body of Christ do not understand the reason why the Church is required to live and function as a community of faith people without borders.

Insecurity has led Pastors and church leaders to systematically build up walls of segregation and separation which has caused huge division across the Body. The kind of atmosphere that eclipses most churches today does not make room for God nor his will to flow. When church members read the word, their interpretation is based on how their leaders see the word. This is a true picture of what the scripture refers to when it says ‘up until now when the people read the scriptures, they are reading Moses.

When we build a philosophy of ownership around the things of God or the people we are assigned to equip for God ministry, we have then become instrument of division.   The veil that has becloud the minds of the people must be remove for the Spirit of unity and the common faith to freely function within the lives of the people. The power of the church which is built on community is strongly under attack for various reasons. Suspicion, pride, unforgiveness and competitive spirit has almost crippled the movement of the people of God.

We must start teaching and growing in the knowledge of the common shared faith if we desire to see the fullness of God Spirit release to this generation. The early Church understood the life and power of this shared faith and the result was that they had all things in common and were able to bring judgment to any issue that arises before them. It is in this context of shared common faith that they were able to finish their assignment without wavering.

The scriptures say if two or three shall agree regarding anything, it shall be done in heaven. The bases of this agreement are built on the power of the shared faith of the community. The power and authority of the community is far greater than the authority or influence of any individual. One shall put to flight a thousand but two shall put to flight ten thousand. That is a huge increase of power just by adding one to one. The Lord is doing something in our day through the spirit of the unity of faith that not only give us power to advance, but will completely change the image of his people in the earth.

These dealings or experience of faith will become as it where, the common language of our heavenly identity and approval as members of the community of God ascend to the mount of Gods pleasure. This is the point where we become perfected in the testimony of our walk with the Holy Spirit, thus binding and unifying our hearts together as members of the same spiritual Farther. This understanding of personal concept of the development of faith however does not erode or negate the corporate community life that is designed to establish each part of the member of the Body of Christ in their advancement towards what the scripture refers to as the perfect man. {Eph 4}

Therefore, generalization of the things of the Spirit, which includes faith under the stewardship of the second day reformation movement of the Church has made things a bit difficult, in terms of trying to now adjust the focus of the brethren from a personalized ‘bless me concept of faith interpretation’ to a more broader knowledge and application of we can term as the corporate kingdom centered faith.

You will be surprise regarding what you still need to learn about faith 

I have been richly blessed by the Lords mercy to have been plunged into a period of sabbatical rest from the activity of religion and unproductive faith exercise, and this period has truly afforded me a lifetime opportunity to revisit and review some of the things I thought I knew and had been established on. Indeed, how wrong I was.  Many believers, including Church leaders have this notion that for the fact that their prayer request was answered meant that the Lord approved their state of being.

This concept is far from biblical the truth. When we take time to study the word of God we see many are times how the Lord allowed his blessing to rest upon something or someone that does not necessarily reflect his direct approval. This comes with different reasons especially when the Lord seeks to protect his name and integrity among his people. Ishmael was blessed by the Lord even though he was eventually rejected on the standard of divine approval. The church in the wilderness was provided for yet, the Lord was not happy with them. in fact, the scripture records that they all perish in the wilderness because of their disobedience and rebellion.

The defining factor of our approval before the Lord is not based on how much our faith is able to achieve or produce in terms of things, but rather, on how far we have come in the reality of obedience and complete trust to Gods voice, ways and dealings at each new season of our migration.  In my season of waiting and spiritual renewal I learned that things are not usually how they look on the surface. Time is always the definer into a dipper reality of the Fathers requirement and approval.

When we hastily rush into concluding that what we know is the right thing, we forfeit the lesson the Spirit of the Lord desire to teach us in the place of waiting. We know in part, therefore, we prophesy in part, when that which is in parts is done away with, and then come the full reality hallelujah! To know some part of the things the lord is saying or doing is not a sin, but to live and remain on that part can be catastrophic to one’s entire spiritual structure and development.

I guess the removal of that which we know in part is what the Lord is currently dealing with across his Body because he desires to bring every one of us into the fullness of his ways and life. For he has come to give us his life in fullness so that we in return can be true dispensers of his light to a generation eclipsed in gross darkness.

The Lord of recent have been speaking extensively regarding the whole issue of living In the spirit of an ascended life, and one of things that is prominent in this emphasis  is the issue of developing a new sense of what Could be define as an ascended faith. To adequately understand the whole concept of ascended faith we need to first all come to terms with the idea of an ascended life.

The ascended life is the epic call of the Spirit in this hour to bring every cell of our DNA INTO FULL ALIGNMENT WITH THE LIFE AND NATURE OF CHRIST. In other words, the ascended life is awakening into the full life and purpose of our existence before the fall in the Garden. It is moving from one dimension of glory of Christ to the next as we cover the earth of our lives with the knowledge of that glory.

Therefore, the ascended faith is a living seed, an operating system if you will, within the life of the Spirit of truth, designed to nurture, enhance, encourage, develop and keep us Mobil in our journey of reaching the assigned end of kingdom centered faith which is the salvation of your soul. for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your soul.

What Enoch is still saying today regarding faith?

There are several (truths) things the apprehended ones are stepping into that will require a reorientation of the ways of faith and moves of Spirit for proper and accurate grasping? This is the day of perfection (maturity) of all things including how we have understood and perceived faith.

 The reality of the days ahead demands that we learn not only to redeem the time for accelerated maturity, but to also resolve within our spirit-man not to be shaken by the threatening of the forces of darkness charging against us. In our previous messages and writings we have to somewhat extensively consider the reasons why living by bible prescribed concept of Faith is important to the whole reality spiritual lifestyle.

 The mystery the Father deposited within Enoch in terms of the nature of faith and other concepts of living a spirit-led life, in my opinion is yet to be maximized or exhausted.  Enoch can be said to be the portal of faith even before Abraham stepped into the tittle of been called the father of faith.

The word of God reveals to us THAT BY FAITH, Enoch walked with God. Now, that to me is the whole essence of the mystery of kingdom centered faith; learning to walk with God. In my opinion, Abraham learned from Enoch such that his understanding of the mystery of faith becomes more comprehensive and matured to the point that he earned the title, the father of faith.

 The release or what some will prefer to call the outpouring of the Spirit of the Lord in this new day requires a more developed and matured knowledge of the word of God which ultimately releases the seed of faith into our inner man. To try to step into understanding both the coming and the speaking’s of the Lord with old unrefined charismatic definition of faith will be absolutely impossible and counterproductive.  What the Lord is doing within his body today demand a revisiting again of all the basic foundations and pillars of our spiritual structure, which faith happens to be one of them.
