What God has been teaching us in our community   1 comment

 

  • He wants Habitation not just visitation

images (1)Ephesians 2:22

New English Translation (NET)

22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

It is my firm conviction that God is building houses of habitation all over the planet! Apostolic Hubs as Paul Keith Davis calls it.  Places that host God himself in fullness! We are that house as we come together in union with one another and with Christ.  We are moving from visitation to habitation; Pentecost to Tabernacles!  We are crossing over the Jordan into unknown territory.  We will be people of the Promised Land.

  • We must get the blueprints from heaven

Exodus 25:40

Common English Bible (CEB)

40 See to it that you make them according to the blueprint for them that you were shown on the mountain.

God is teaching us that we must get the blueprint for what God is building from heaven.  We can’t afford to build according to the ideas of man any longer! What is coming has never been seen before.  It’s the latter house and it cannot be tainted by our ideas of what it should look like! Just like Moses we must build according to the pattern that we will be shown on the mountain.  What Mountain you might ask?  GodsMountain – Heavenly Zion.

  • We can and should ascend the secret stairs

Song of Solomon 2:14

King James Version (KJV)

14 O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.

We must ascend the secret stairs in these days.  Can you hear the call? It’s the call to come up yes but I’ts also the call to great intimacy, great friendship with God himself!  We desire to see his face but he also desires to see out countenance and hear our voice! Let our words be a sweet sweet sound in His ear! The call upwards is really a call inwards to the heart of God!

 

  • We have come to Mount Zion (the Governmental arena of God)

Hebrews 12:22-26

New King James Version (NKJV)

22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.

Out of this great intimacy with God Himself we will be led into Government and shown how to rule as Kings!  This is where we begin to ascend into mountZion, Gods Holy mount!  Gods heart for us also wants to extend through us to bring justice to the world that he deeply cares for!

  • We can and should access heavens courts

Zechariah 3:7

The Message (MSG)

6-7 God’s Angel then charged Joshua, “Orders from God-of-the-Angel-Armies: ‘If you live the way I tell you and remain obedient in my service, then you’ll make the decisions around here and oversee my affairs. And all my attendants standing here will be at your service.

 

And from mountZion we learn to engage with the courts of God for at the centre of Zions Hill the Judge sits on His throne!  We learn to petition the judge and cooperate with his judicial system so that God through us can bring alignment to the nations!  For a generation shall learn how to overcome by the word of their testimony!  The hubs that God is raising up will learn how to release justice to their regions by engaging the heavenly courts!  We are learning what it really means when Jesus said, ‘I will build my church’ (ecclesia).  He will build his Government!

 

 

  • We can and should function under the 7 Spirits of God

Isaiah 11:2

New International Version (NIV)

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and of might,
the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord

And as surely as there is a Government in heaven so we must function under that Government on earth!  We have been learning that to come under the 7 spirits of God is to come under His government.  Their will be a generation who will walk as Jesus did under the fullness of all that God is!  For as He is so are we in this world!  Jesus walked under the 7 Spirits of God on earth and so must we!

  • God wants to raise us up into mature sons who walk in fullness

Ephesians 4:11-13

King James Version (KJV)

11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

 

There Is a day coming where, as Paul Keith Davis says, we will go beyond the untill (of verse 13) and become the mature (or perfect man) Sons of God on the earth!  All creation is waiting for this but we must desire this.  Its time to long for this and position ourselves to receive this!  The Apostolic Hubs that God is building all over the earth will be the greenhouses where the mature sons can grow and begin to emerge!

  • Only Wisdom can build the house

Proverbs 9:1

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Way of Wisdom

Wisdom has built her house,
She has hewn out her seven pillars;

We need more than ever to ask and desire to have the Spirit of Wisdom because it’s only wisdom that can build the house!  If we don’t have the Spirit of Wisdom then we will revert back to the wisdom of this world and we will build something that God doesn’t recognise and when the storms come it will crumble!

  • All of this begins when we learn how to have Government of Self

 

Government of self is at the centre of all of this.  By Government of self by no means do I mean self Government.  I mean allowing the grace of God to enable you to die to your own will and earthly desires.  Now I didn’t say die to sin I said die to our will because our old man has already been crucified with Christ we just need to really believe that.  But there is no doubt we need to put aside our will to engage with His will.  Like Jesus we will say ‘Not my will but thy will be done!’

  • We should never give up along the way even when things get tough! We are going from Glory to Glory

And finally we will walk into all of this if we simply don’t give in.  Sometimes trials come and we feel we can’t go on but by Gods grace we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.  We are going from Glory to Glory and nothing can stop this process as long as we keep our eyes fixed on things above!  God is building houses of Government (Apostolic hubs as PKD calls them) all across the globe and He is raising up the mature sons who will walk in great Kingship and yet walk in great humility.  Great Glory will be seen in these hubs and no one on this earth will ever be able to say again that they didn’t know that there was a God in heaven! For the Glory of the Lord will be seen!

All these themes (and more) were taught in one way or another over the past few years.  You can listen to them at www.stephenmckie.podomatic.com
