We are in a NEW DAY and even a NEW ERA! The “church in transition” is a “church in crisis!” But crisis is good for us, because it wakes us up and gives us much needed COURAGE! I pray for us all, that we are not discouraged by what we see and all the tangents that the church gets entangled with! But there is a “church within a church”, a people called to the mountain of the Lord, a people called to mount Zion, and a spiritual family of sons and daughters in right relationship with Fathers and mothers in the faith! This is the true “ecclesia”, those called to be the alternative to the kingdoms of men and their empires built on half-truths and deception.
This “family/army” of God is a “governmental people under the rule of Christ and His kingdom”, to establish the sons of God in the generative equipping of the saints, that transforms the order of the church through relational authority and not positional authority! I believe many strong men and women of God here on this forum who have been sharing and participating in this, can clearly see that the “crisis” in leadership is in direct proportion to the faulty foundations of the church. Without apostolic and prophetic foundations and relationships, the children will remain babes and never be able to grow up!
Regardless of your experiences and extremes of the last 30-40 years, the Father has “line upon line” been restoring back to the church, in reverse order, so that now in the “fullness of time” and in kingdom alignment, help us all to see that all the best we have been able to do through our meetings and gifts and anointing, IS NOT ENOUGH! Personality and performance will never take the place of kingdom relationships that have been “tried with fire” and no longer need the approval of men to serve those who are coming up. The Spirit of Elijah is here, the hearts of the fathers are turning to the children (sons) and the hearts of the sons are turning to their fathers… once again… It came through John the Baptist to lead to Jesus Christ in the first reformation of the kingdom from “law to grace!” It is here once again… the key is once again found in the theme through all scripture… Patriarchal blessing and generational alignment…
I. Co. 4:15- For though you might have ten thousand instructors (boy leaders) in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you ( became your father) through the gospel.
This was Apostle Paul’s injunction to the church in the first century and has come full circle once again… Men and women of God, sons and daughters of the Most High God, if your spirit and heart is turned and is turning to the Father in this hour to see the generational blessing and order of God restored once again, then now let us pray and seek the Father to see how facilitate His heart and love once again. Let us go beyond our borders and let us give of ourselves so that the “many” may become a “corporate Son” in the earth today!
Isa. 58:12- Those from among you Shall (re)build the old waste places; You shall raise up the foundation of many generations; And you (plural) shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets (paths) to Dwell in. (Ps.133:1-3; Eph, 2:20-22; 3:8-11; 4:11-16; Heb. 12:22-29)
I’ll will prayerfully be awaiting your hearts…. JB
