Blessings and more, it has been a privilege to be able to bring to you these downloads from God to strengthen and encourage you.
I want to share with you what I feel that the Lord is saying. I take my text from 1 Samuel Chapter 22. The scripture tells the story of David running from Saul in fear for his life. At that time he left his entire family with the king of Moab and hid himself in the stronghold. The prophet Gad, came to David and told him to get out of the stronghold and go into Judah.
God was telling Him to praise his way out of confinement. Saints praise is key at this time. Whatever dire situation you find yourself in DO NOT COMPROMISE, move into PRAISE and PRAISE YOUR WAY OUT. When Saul knew that David was in hiding he began to use his position to bribe people to stay with him, by offering them positions that David could not offer to those with him. David only had a band of thieves and people in debt supporting him, so Saul started to starve David of alignments and relationships, by annihilating anyone who appeared to be helping David.
Let me explain what I sense that God is saying here. In the past in order to keep people on their side some have placed people in positions for which they were not skilled or qualified. This resulted in broken dreams for the people put in the position and to them running away when the going gets tough. David had gained experience in the desert by protecting the sheep from the lions. His experience meant that He knew God and this gave David a quiet confidence that His God was real. Thus, he was heaven sent, to serve Saul, not because he wanted a post, but because he was fully qualified.
That is why he was able to obey God’s word and not take Saul out when he had the opportunity to do so. Any one can be slightly intimidated by the confidence in God of the real David’s but that is not a reason to become a Saul. There has been a shaking and an exchange is taking place, right now it is as if a new breed of leaders is coming forth. As I sat at the feet of Jesus Christ as he gave me the word, I saw in the realms of the spirit almost as if an earthquake had taken place and allowed two roads collapse. So that they were now lying on top of each other, the shorter road was pressing down on the longer road. Because there were more cars on the former road, only a few made it to the other side and it seemed like there was going to be an imbalance.
However the road beneath was strengthened and seemed to holding its own supporting the cars on it. The Lord spoke and said ‘A major shift has taken place’ The Lord is replacing the commercial values that have come into the church with His kingdom values. In the commercialisation of the church it seems the church is going the ‘highest bidder’. Although there have been many movements formed by Godly inspiration they have all ended up doing the same thing they were trying to run away from.
When a person has an opportunity to come alongside an influential person instead of bringing a balance in what they say or do, because of the person’s needs or emotions they enforce a structure that God is trying to correct and so they are back to square one. No more, there is a shift and it is clear.
My sense is God will still leave certain structures in place, which He will know how to deal with. However, He is raising a new breed, building a Kingdom of people – not out of rebellion – a confident people who know their God and who are still able to respect and submit. I hear the Lord say that this movement is to be a complete one; we are to take our families with us. David was running in fear for his life, and left his family behind. However, this new shift will be seen through in God’s strength. This means that in this season when we dealing with fears or situations we are not to compromise our families, network, areas of our life or anything that matters to us. If you do this, it brings about strongholds that the enemy can use against you later and you have to fight the harder for breakthrough.
My prayer is that the grace of God will come upon the body of Christ, to enable you as you work according to God’s will and purpose in this transition. Amen. You have the anointing to deal with the issues that come up in your life: finances, choosing the right alignments, marital issues, even when you have to make tough decisions you will not make commercialised decisions that will take you back to square one.
In the next level, you will need people to go on with you on the journey but beware some of them are ambitious and might go for the positions – the commercialisation. Some may be released to go into these places and positions because they qualify and rightly so. You will know who is with you for what they can get from you and those that are with you to help you. On the other hand, sometimes you might be tempted to stay in a particular position, when God is telling you not to stay.
When the time comes for a shift, MOVE, do not be tempted to stay. Because of his disobedience, God sent a distressing spirit to vex Saul. If you do not leave when told to, it brings vexation of spirit. I hear the Lord say His Grace is sufficient, you can access it in times of temptation. I declare that that the people who are going to support you will not be destroyed.
The spirit of Saul can try to isolate organisations, individuals who are there to support you. Across the nations the adversary is trying to silence the helpers. I hear God say ‘I will give them protection no one will lose their lives in protecting my children’.
Creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. What the enemy gained through the original sin, the sons of God are taking back their inheritance and coming into their rightful place. The shift has taken place; I pray God’s Grace and strength fall on you as you read this letter to move from one position to another in Him.
Lord let your Kingdom and your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Amen. My team and I are praying for you. He that began the work is completing it. Be determined and focused.
In His love and mine
