Ekklesia ARISE!

www.facebook.com/events/245174989440825/

As we did an update today on the event, Father spoke to my heart to change it from “rising” to an apostolic command “ARISE!!” Rising is definitely a process and the Ekklesia has been in that transition, but now it is time to have a “Resurrection!” It means a “raising up, a “standing up again”, a making WHOLE!

In the days of the restoration of all things, restore means to “repair, to set in order, to complete.” Ps. 102:13- You will arise and have mercy upon Zion; For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come.

As we enter into this new Era of the Ekklesia, the corporate overcomer and representative of the kingdom, we will Arise and stand on our feet, taking our place in the army of the Lord!

Ezekiel 37:10- So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath (the breath of life) came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, AN EXCEEDINGLY GREAT ARMY…

Yours for the kingdom,

Jim and Pam

RETURNING TO THE FATHER’S COVENANT!

After Jacob’s encounter with the LORD at Bethel, he goes to his Uncle Laban’s house and falls in love with Rachel.  He agrees to work for her for seven years, and Laban tricks him with Leah!  He then works another seven years again for Rachel because of the love he had for her!  (Gen. 29)  Leah has child after child, and Rachel is barren.  Rachel cries out, “Give me children or I die!” (Gen. 30:1)  Jacob worked another six years for the flock of Laban. 

Jacob decides to take his wives and flee from Laban’s house.  Laban had deceived Jacob and changed his wages ten times.  Jacob had a dream where the Angel of God appeared to him and said to him, “I am the God of Bethel, where you anointed the pillar and made a vow to me.  Now arise, get out of this land, and return to the land of your family.”  (Gen. 31:13)  Of course, Laban comes after him, but the LORD does not allow him to hurt him.

In there heated exchange with one another, Jacob finally tells Laban, “Thus I have been in your house for 20 years:  I served you fourteen years for your two daughters, and six years for your flock, and you have changed my wages ten times.”  (Then, the LORD spoke generationally to him)  “Unless the God of my father, the God of Abraham and the Fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely now you would have sent me away empty-handed.  GOD HAS SEEN MY AFFLICTION AND THE LABOR OF MY HANDS, AND REBUKED YOU LAST NIGHT.”  (Gen. 31:41,42)

Many have been running away from their promise and their Father’s house and have had to serve another one under the guise of deception!  Some have fallen “in love” with ministry, and would do anything to be married to their ministry!  So, therefore, you have to work twice as hard for it and labor with your own strength.  He worked six more years ( the number of man) for a total of 20 years, which is the number for redemption.  Laban changes his wages “10” times, which ten is number for “measure of order!”  But the LORD still protected him from being destroyed!

That’s why Jacob had to leave, because he had come to his “wit’s end” and it was time for him to be redeemed and time to come back into order.  Jacob took a stone and set it up as a pillar. Here he makes another pillar, as he did at Bethel in Gen. 28.  He gathers more stones and set them up as a heap and He and Laban make covenant and eat on the heap. (Gen. 31:45,46)  Jacob is still not reconciled with Esau, and he hasn’t had his name change, but He is in position now to fulfill His generational blessing! 

It is time to return to the place of your “generational inheritance and blessing” so that the Father can fulfill His purpose and destiny in you!  The “heap of stones” is a witness that God has established covenant with Jacob because of his obedience to honor the Father through sacrifice.  “Return to the stronghold you prisoners of hope.  Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.”  (Zech. 9:12)

THE MAGNA CHARTA OF THE CHURCH-2013!

Ephesians. 4:1-16- I Therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye would walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye were called with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;  Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

THERE IS ONE BODY, AND ONE SPIRIT, EVEN AS YOU ARE CALLED IN ONE HOPE OF YOUR CALLING;  ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM, ONE GOD AND FATHER OF ALL, WHO IS ABOVE ALL, AND THROUGH ALL, AND IN ALL.

But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.  Wherefore He saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.  (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?  He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

AND HE GAVE SOME, APOSTLES; AND SOME, PROPHETS;  AND SOME, EVANGELIST;  AND SOME, PASTORS AND TEACHERS;  FOR THE PERFECTING OF THE SAINTS FOR THE WORK OF THEIR MINISTRY, FOR THE EDIFYING OF THE BODY OF CHRIST;

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:

That we henceforth be not more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

FROM WHOM THE WHOLE BODY FITLY JOINED TOGETHER AND COMPACTED BY THAT WHICH EVERY JOINT SUPPLIETH, ACCORDING TO THE MEASURE OF EVERY PART, MAKETH INCREASE OF THE BODY UNTO THE EDIFYING OF ITSELF IN LOVE.
