1 The Glory Separates 1. Korah's rebellion was judged by God's glory. Numbers 16:19 21 outlines that: Korah assembled all the congregation against them at the doorway of the tent of meeting. And the glory of the LORD appeared to all the congregation. Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, "Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them instantly." 2. The stress and turmoil in the world will continually increase as this present age reaches its completion and the Lord's Kingdom is prepared to be revealed. 3. The confrontation between light and darkness will also escalate as evil will become greater. Likewise, the children of light must respond to offer hope and salvation through the Lord's redemptive work.

2 B. Two Open Doors The Bowels of Hell From Heavenly Realms

3 C. Vision for the Future 1. The Bible stresses that mankind will perish when there is a lack of true spiritual knowledge, and without a vision the people are unrestrained and without order. 2. Therefore, the spirit of revelation is a prerequisite to cooperate with God in this last day functioning of His plans. 3. To each of us is given a measure of faith; therefore it requires spiritual vision for us to appropriate our faith towards the things that are of lasting spiritual value. 4. The Lord is granting to us in this season fresh deposits of His revelatory anointing to provide clarity, insight and the true knowledge of Him. This will begin to sanctify us for the coming battle.

4 D. From What Perspective 1. Recently I heard the Holy Spirit say, "You can see things as they appear or you can see them as they really are." 2. This admonition is challenging us to begin to see things from Heavens perspective; that was the experience granted Gehazi when Elisha prayed for his eyes to be opened. 3. When the revelatory anointing was granted, Elisha's servant saw the mountains filled with Heaven's host that greatly outnumbered the enemy. Suddenly his perspective changed from fear to faith because of spiritual vision and seeing things from God's point of view.

5 E. Learning to Occupy 1. There is an "occupying" anointing that is being distributed among us. 2. It is one thing to experience breakthrough but altogether another to occupy where the enemy has been displaced. 3. We must be prepared and mobilized with a plan of occupation when we address various cities and regions. 4. We are given the authority and dominion to occupy the areas for which we have spiritual revelation. Jesus said: When the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and not finding any, it says, "I will return to my house from which I came. And when it comes, it finds it swept and put in order. Then it goes and takes {along} seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first --- Luke 11:24- 26

6 F. Times of Separation-- Jeremiah 15:19-20 1. Separating the clean from the unclean and the precious from the profane can only be achieved by the manifestation of the Living Word. Hebrews 4:12 states: For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart — Hebrews 4:12 2. These days will see the Lord returning as the Living Word to separate spirit from soul and judge the thoughts and intentions of men's hearts. Many of our prophetic utterances are determined by the sincerity of our hearts. 3. We simply cannot allow selfish ambition or personal agendas to dictate the flow of prophetic insight.

7 G. Plumbline Ministries Zechariah 4:6 the prophet declared: Then he said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' says the LORD of hosts. What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of "Grace, grace to it!"...The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house, and his hands will finish it. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you. For who has despised the day of small things? But these seven will be glad when they see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel these are the eyes of the LORD which range to and fro throughout the earth." 1. The Seven Spirits of God will rejoice when they see a righteous “plumbline” being demonstrated among God's people. 2. That is the function of the new priestly order who will begin to separate truth from the precepts of men. 3. This work will begin to prepare the bride of Christ without spot or wrinkle so that she can become one with the Bridegroom. This season of the Spirit will initiate this process in greater measure.

8 H. Completion and New Beginnings 1. When a time of completion has arrived, then a day of new beginnings will be birthed. 2. The Lord has "fullness of time" junctures in human history when His Spirit flourishes with fresh understanding of His nature and character. 3. The results will always be a harvest of souls and greater influence in Heavenly places. This time of completion will launch us into such a time as that.

9 I. The Sons of Light 1. The Bible clearly outlines that every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of Lights. God is Light and in Him there is no shifting shadow. Consequently, we are likewise called to be light in the midst of a dark generation. 2. It was by His own will that he gave us birth as "sons of the Kingdom" by His Word of Truth. 3. We are designated to be a form of first fruits of His creation and a representation of what the "sons of the Kingdom" are called and consecrated to be. Therefore do not be partakers with them; for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth, trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord — Ephesians 5:7-10

10 4. The surest evidence of the "children of Light" and God's true leadership will be the clear presence of the fruit of the Spirit. God's righteousness will begin to reflect the Spirit's nature in our lives. 5. The display of His character in us is ultimately pleasing to the Lord and the reflection of His Light that we must possess. The "sons of the Kingdom" as highlighted in Matthew 13 saying, The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man, and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom....the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are angels - Matthew 13:37-39 6. If we are to be the "light"of the world, we will possess qualities consistent with "sons of the Kingdom" and children of light by allowing Christ to be fully manifested in us.

11 J. Cities that Welcome the Heavenly Realm will Have a Great Light over Them. 1. The Lord is indicating His desire to restore through His church, His original mandate for man and fully heal the breach that has existed since man's fall in the garden. 2. Our cities will reflect Heaven's light only to the degree that the saints within them do so. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven ---Matthew 5:14-16

12 K. Saints Crying out to God Continually will Become Light. 1. The Lord recently expressed His desire to deal with the strongholds in us so we can deal with the strongholds in our churches, cities and nation. 2. The Holy Spirit spoke to me in a meeting and said "If the people will allow Me to remove the stumbling-blocks within them, I will then remove the ones before them." 3. God's people are called to be the repairers of the breach and restorers of streets and dwellings. Isaiah 58:12 declares, And those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; you will raise up the age-old foundations; and you will be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of the streets in which to dwell

13 4. The Lord clothes Himself in light as with a virtuous garment to depict His great authority in Heaven and in creation. We are likewise called to be endowed with the raiment of light that proceeds from Him. We are summoned to be the light and salt of the earth. 5. The pure white light of Heaven will proceed from the Throne to be imparted into the spirit and soul of the Lord's people to make us divine carriers of His virtue. 6. Many will encounter the Lights of Heaven in private worship and in corporate settings in amplified ways over the coming months and years. 7. This Light will manifest as the Sevenfold Spirit of God in the same way that pure white light directed through a prism highlights the seven colors of the spectrum. 8. This is the model for the lost to be drawn to the Kingdom of Light; then the masses will be drawn to our light and fulfill the prophecies of Daniel when he said, Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever - Daniel 12:3

14 L. A Time of Great Awakening Producing Restoration and Reconciliation. 1. We as a generation have come to a "fullness of time" crossroad in God's plan of progressive restoration. 2. We are assigned the ministry of recovery and reconciliation and the next installment is at the door. 3. It will be marked by notable expression of power with emphasis on the recovery of sight to the blind. 4. It will take place in the natural to indicate a spiritual reality. Matthew 9:29 says, Then He touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith and trust and reliance [on the power invested in Me] be it done to you. Amplified

15 M. Those who Seek Understanding From a Place of Meekness will be Taught by the Holy Spirit. 1. Highlighted revelatory truth is being set before us through words that are not taught by human wisdom, but by the Holy Spirit. 2. It is the consolidation of spiritual truth with spiritual language in and through those possessing the Spirit of Understanding. 3. There are corporate and personal messages proceeding from God's heart relative to our destiny and position in Heaven's economy. Paul said

16 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words -1 Corinthians 2:12-13 4. Kindness and truth are indispensable ingredients necessary in God's formula to awaken this generation. Proverbs 3:3-4 Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute In the sight of God and man.

17 N. Prayers Sown Will Be Answers Reaped 1. The Spirits of Wisdom and Revelation entrusted to us have been unfolding spiritual blueprints and strategies for this day. Many intercessory groups and ministries have seen these outlines and sown revelatory prayer for their fulfillment. The prophetic day they foresaw is now upon us. This day will be like the one Ezekiel spoke of saying, Son of man, what is this proverb you people have concerning the land of Israel, saying, "The days are long and every vision fails"? Therefore say to them, "Thus says the Lord GOD, I will make this proverb cease so that they will no longer use it as a proverb in Israel." But tell them, "The days draw near as well as the fulfillment of every vision. For there will no longer be any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel. For I the LORD will speak, and whatever word I speak will be performed. It will no longer be delayed, for in your days, O rebellious house, I will speak the word and perform it," declares the Lord GOD " — Ezekiel 12:21-25 He will put a word in our mouths to, Pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant. The word of the LORD came to me saying, "What do you see, Jeremiah?" And I said, "I see a rod of an almond tree. Then the LORD said to me, "You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it - Jeremiah 1:10-12

18 O. Confirming the Word. Day of the Saints 1. Saints Accomplishing the Things the Lord Has Appointed for Them to do. 2. This declaration has both natural and spiritual implications. Clearly we are living in a day when miracles, signs and wonders are an essential aspect of our New Testament heritage. 3. As in the early church, God's healing power and extraordinary exploits provide Heaven's validation necessary to meet the great needs of the masses. 4. Our message must be confirmed with the miraculous to be most effective. 5. However, the greatest application will be the spiritual awakening of God's people to receive spiritual eyes to see and ears to hear. 6. We must alleviate the mistakes of the past and recognize our day of visitation.

19 P. Many Awakened from a Religious Spirit "O Adonai, if I have found favor in Your eyes," he said, "then let the Lord (Adonai, the Angel of Covenant, the Messiah) go with us. Although this is a stiff- necked people, forgive our wickedness and our sin, and take us as your inheritance." - Exodus 34:9 1. According to the commission given to Moses, supernatural signs have a "voice." There is a message that accompanies the signs. The message is one of restoration of God's covenant people to a place of spiritual prominence and submission to the lordship of Jesus Christ. 2. We become "stiff-necked" when we insist on our own way and allow our plans and agenda to usurp the Spirit's leadership. 3. In every age, God's spiritual voice that is validated by signs and wonders always calls that generation back to the lordship of Christ. This was especially true during the Latter Rain revival as numerous ministers admonished the church to relinquish their personal agendas and programs to embrace intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit.

20 4. Moses had a face-to-face friendship with the Lord. That exchange facilitated the apprehension of His desire for complete leadership of God's covenant people. When we in this generation discover that place of friendship, we will also understand more fully how the spirit of anti-christ has infiltrated the church with a counterfeit anointing that usurps the Spirit's leadership. 5. The book of Revelation calls it the "spirit of the Nicolaitans" that ventures to overshadow God's aspiration to release total liberty in the church and mobilize His people into a priesthood of believers. That trend will change as we become more discerning of His presence and walk more intimately with Him. 6. We become "stiff-necked" when we insist upon our own plans and agendas and fail to embrace His. 7. Grace is being offered to relinquish that mind-set along with the wonderful opportunity to participate with the Lord in His plans. This union is where true spiritual fruitfulness will be generated. 8. The generation who exited Egypt under the leadership of Moses missed their door of opportunity and wandered 38 years as a result. In many ways, that could accurately depict the generation that participated in the Latter Rain revival of the 40's and 50's. Nevertheless, change is upon us. We recently wrote about this transition outlining that the leadership of Moses has ceased and now the leadership of Joshua will emerge.

21 Q. Spiritual Discernment Shall Increase in the Body of Christ to Know and Recognize Truth from Falsehood. 1. With a fresh word from the Lord there is an equally important need for increase in our measure of discernment. History has proven that each major juncture in God's time-line is met with a deluge of voices. However, the Lord promised that His sheep will know His voice. He said, When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers - John 10:4-5 2. The Lord comes with miracles, signs and wonders to validate a message that is firmly rooted and grounded in the written word.

22 3. God's people are often captivated by the signs and wonders but only a remnant captures the message. This trend must be reversed in this hour. 4. The early Church model prayed that the Lord would, Grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence, while You extend Your hand to heal, and signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy servant Jesus - Acts 4:29-30 5. Truth is the seal of God. The Spirit of Truth will guide us into all truth and thereby eliminate all forms of deliberate falsehood and hypocrisy and that message will be confirmed with Heaven's affirmation of the miraculous. 6. The Holy Spirit worked with the early disciples with sign and wonders to confirm the message of God's Kingdom. To us a measure of grace is being allotted to quicken our spirits for receptivity to that message. 7. A supernatural hunger is provoking us to move beyond cold formal religiosity to pursue relationship with Him. To even possess this desire is God's gift.

23 R. Overcoming the Laodicean Spirit—Stupor and Gloom that Hangs like a Dark Cloud. 1. It is fundamentally essential for the spirit of stupor to be extracted for us to begin to see with spirit eyes. The Apostle Paul said, Even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God - 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 2. Our adversary has worked diligently to release the "spirit of stupor" over the western church. This diabolical scenario blinds our eyes and shields our ears to spiritual truth. It shields us from the glory of Christ that depicts the perfect image of God and promotes a sense of satisfaction to simply live in a justified state without being incited to greater depths in Him.

24 3. A "great light" will be offered to those who have formally known darkness and gloom. Much like the promise given to the land of Zebulun and Naphtali, the people who walk in darkness will see a brilliant light and He will make the end of the age a glorious season. (See Isaiah 9:1-2) 4. Our directive is to create an atmosphere for people to personally encounter the Lord and also address issues of the soul that have kept us from divine destiny. 5. The Lord is expressing His desire to release a revelatory realm that allows people to obtain a vision of destiny and the "hope of our calling" that dispels hopelessness and gloom. Paul said, Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words - 1 Corinthians 2:12-13 6. Personal rendezvous' with the Lord delivers us from gloom and stupor by allowing hope to permeate our hearts with visions of destiny and the importance of this generation. We then endeavor to lay aside every encumbrance and entanglement that has hindered us in the past and motivate us to move on to God's high calling.

25 S. The Power of the Spoken Word 1. In this season God's people must learn to deal with unresolved anger and bitterness over past failures and disappointments. These are the primary issues that cause our words to be spoken from a wrong spirit and detrimental to others and ourselves. 2. For those who have learned this lesson, notable advancement will be achieved in their walk with the Lord. They will be entrusted with exceptional increases in anointing and authority. 3. If we are harboring anger or bitterness for any reason, we must take that to the cross and ask for the grace to be released from its grip so our discernment will be clear and unimpeded A man's stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; from the produce of his lips he shall be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit - Proverbs 18:20-21 Mark 11:23—Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.

26 T. Identifying the Spirit of Antichrist 1. The religious spirit is so closely akin to the Holy Spirit, the Lord announced, it would deceive the very elect IF POSSIBLE. 2. That is a sobering warning granted to us in Matthew 24. Nevertheless, there is an unseen force compelling many believers out of complacency or rigid religious is divine destiny. 3. Something has been imparted into the spiritual DNA of this generation that rejects the "lukewarm" Laodicean spirit that has so subtlety deceived many. 4. It is God's grace that allows spiritual awakening to recognize the distinction between these two spirits. 5. The religious spirit introduces into the Church the spirit of the world nullifying the Grace of God.

27 6. The views of Truth necessary to purify the church are not such as the world gives, but are such as are communicated by God's Spirit. This spirit will attempt to lead the Church away from the reality of God expressed in the Book of Acts. 7. During the later years of his life, John G. Lake received a powerful angelic visitation. In this encounter the angel opened the scriptures to the Book of Acts saying, "This is Pentecost as God gave it through the heart of Jesus. Strive for this...contend for this...teach the people to pray for this. For this, and this alone will meet the necessity of the human heart and this alone will have power to overcome the forces of darkness." 8. As the angel departed he admonished Bro. Lake insisting, "Pray, pray, pray...Teach the people to pray. Prayer and prayer alone, much prayer, persistent prayer is the door of entrance to the heart of God." 9. Believers who pursue the Lord with honest and sincere hearts will begin to recognize the spirit of religion more definitively as the counterfeit of the true anointing that should rightfully be embraced by the Lord's people.

28 10. Many of the counterfeit spirits operating in the church will become increasingly less effective and revealed as a thief. A clear line of delineation is going to be drawn in these days. It will become much more discernable who truly serves God and who does not. This will begin the days prophesied by Malachi when he said, Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard it and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name. They will be Mine," says the LORD of hosts, "on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him. So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him — Malachi 3:16-18 11. Truth from the book of Acts will be utilized to lay the axe to the root of the religious tree so the emerging, anointed tree of Life can become more clearly visible.

29 U. Those Who Have Been Faithful in a Few Things Will be Entrusted With Much More. 1. The man who goes forth to do his work and faithfully labors until evening is considered the righteous laborer and entrusted with greater power and authority. 2. This season will produce righteous and faithful people who will be endowed with greater measures of faith and broader dimensions of authority because of their trustworthiness. 3. Great-grace exceeds "common grace" and God has promised to give this favor to the humble. (1 Peter 5:5) Much of this season has been intended to cultivate humility in a body of people. These will be God's champions to whom notable mantels of revelation and power will be entrusted during the coming days.

30 4. The Lord is looking for the humble and contrite. As the prophet Isaiah recorded, Thus says the LORD, "Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool. Where then is a house you could build for me? And where is a place that I may rest? For My hand made all these things, thus all these things came into being," declares the LORD. "But to this one I will look, to him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word --- Isaiah 66:1-2 5. The ones who are lowly and tremble at God's Word will begin to experience divine intervention from Heaven's host. 6. Our faithfulness to the anointed Word will uniquely prepare us for this specific hour in human history and qualify us for greater measures. It will literally be the fulfillment of Hebrews 1: 7. God's ministers will be ignited as a flame of fire, and fueled by angels who are winds.

31 V. Rivers of Compassion Flowing From Those Who have Learned to Love. 1. Although witnessing the miraculous in our ministry or giving accurate prophetic words or seeing the desperately sick healed are all wonderful exploits, they are all considered gifts of God exercised according to His will. 2. Our greatest endorsement from the Lord will come when we learn to love. That is the reality of Christ being formed in us. 3. For those who discover that place in God, a special release of His healing power will flow through them like a river. Compassion is the key to God's heart that unlocks wells of healing. 4. Days of divine visitation are clearly marked with the miraculous. The Latter Rain revival that was initiated in 1946 is remembered as one of the most significant expressions of God's miracle working power recorded in modern church history. Many historians say it was the greatest outpouring of power since the early church.

32 W. Sowing in Tears; Reaping in Joy 1. Sowing righteousness will reap a harvest of salvation. Our call is to sow spiritually in uprightness that is birthed from a posture of right standing with God. In so doing, we will reap according to mercy and lovingkindness. 2. We are entering a season of harvest. It will be a harvest of “harvesters.” Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. — Psalms 126:5-6 3. What and how we sow will determine our harvest. We are to break up uncultivated ground outside the four wall of the institutional church. This will result in a wonderful harvest of gifted people who will be very fruitful in the Kingdom. They already have a zeal for spiritual things, if only misguided. Once they discover the truth, all their devotion and enthusiasm will be for Jesus.

33 4. Much prayer and sacrifice has already been invested in this day. Many seeds of revival and spiritual outpouring have been sown. We will now become the beneficiaries of a great spiritual inheritance and reap from “vineyards” that we did not plant. Even so, those who sow and those who reap will rejoice together. Jesus said in John 4, Do you not say, "There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest. Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. For in this {case} the saying is true, "One sows and another reaps — John 4:35-37 5. Seeds sown in prior generations have come to a place of maturity. Commissions, mantles and spiritual gifts can be apprehended that were previously worn by pioneers and leaders of the past.

34 X. Becoming Fruitful in the Kingdom. Soul VRS Spirit 1. When the Holy Spirit came on the Day of Pentecost in the 1st century church, the spirit of anti-Christ was released as well. These two spirits have run concurrently throughout history and are beginning to come to a maturity that will prepare this generation for the great end-time battle. Matthew 13:37: The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man, and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one; and the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are angels — Matthew 13:37-39 2. “Sons of the evil one” will function by the spirit of anti-Christ and possess awesome power that appeals to the mind, will, and emotions of man rather than to his spirit. The Lord is providing a covering and canopy for the “sons of the Kingdom” who are being provoked by God's Spirit, while this counterfeit spirit is being uncovered and openly displayed to them.

35 3. Witchcraft, sorcery and the control spirit motivated through worldly wisdom will emerge with great maturity and power in this age. The “sons of the Kingdom” must likewise mature to the place that we begin to “taste the God Word of God and the Power of the age to come” and release the reality of Christ in us, the hope of glory. 4. This is for the land "beyond the Jordan" as we cross over into the day of promise. Illumination will be coming to those who have formally embraced traditionalism and religious structures and many will now embrace His divine light.

36 Y. The New Model Priesthood—Great Inspired Teachers Functioning Under the Spirit of Truth. 1. The term “inspired teachers” is one taken from both Old and New Testament scriptures generally referencing leaders or priests who receive their understanding of the Word "through a revelation of Jesus Christ." (Galatians 1:12) 2. The Apostle Paul stated that his discovery of Truth came not by the teaching of man nor by reading a book, but by a divine revelation of Jesus Christ. 3. Supernaturally gifted teachers present truth that will begin to sanctify believers according to John 17:17. 4. The “inspired teachers” will promote sanctification within the church that makes her a suitable dwelling place for the fullness of God's Spirit. His manifest Presence will empower believers to become partakers of His divine nature and His Holy character.

37 5. All of these purposes, related to the inspired priest or teacher, are identified with the true biblical definition of discipleship. That is, teaching believers to become the Lord's “friends.” This form of discipleship will also lead the church into the full revelation and realization of Galatians 5:22-23. 6. The main assignment of the "inspired teachers" will be to Biblically reveal the Lord's requirements for the end-time church to taste the good Word of God and prepare her to walk in Kingdom power. (Hebrews 6:5) It will now become essential for God's leadership to be partakers of His divine nature. With this reality we bear the fruit of the Spirit as a prerequisite for the release and impartation of God's power gifts and His highest callings necessary for end-time ministry. 7. Through their spiritual revelation of the written Word, the 21st century leadership model will more fully acquaint the church with the necessary steps of preparation and consecration needed to be viable participants in God's end-time plan. 8. The ministry of inspired teachers can best be understood in the prophecies of Ezekiel and his identification of the righteous Zadok Priesthood. He recorded that this loyal company was granted the privilege of ministering to the Lord because of their devotion. He said,

38 The Levitical priests, the sons of Zadok, who kept charge of My sanctuary when the sons of Israel went astray from Me, shall come near to Me to minister to Me; and they shall stand before Me to offer Me the fat and the blood," declares the Lord GOD. They shall enter My sanctuary; they shall come near to My table to minister to Me and keep My charge...Moreover, they shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean — Ezekiel 44:15-16,23 9. Inspired teachers who have encountered the Teacher will bring to the Church revelatory truth that will separate the precious from the profane and the clean from the unclean. Great mysteries of the Kingdom are reserved in God's heart to be examined and explored by the end-time Church. Isaiah 30:20-21—Although the Lord has given you bread of privation and water of oppression, He, your Teacher will no longer hide Himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher. 21 Your ears will hear a word behind you, " This is the way, walk in it," whenever you turn to the right or to the left. Isaiah 30:26—The light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven days, on the day the Lord binds up the fracture of His people and heals the bruise He has inflicted.

39 Z. Strengthen Feeble Knees and Downcast Hearts 1. Our directive is to create an atmosphere for people to encounter the Lord and also address issues of the soul that have kept us from divine destiny. 2. The Lord is expressing His desire to release a revelatory realm that allows people to obtain a vision of destiny and the "hope of our calling" that dispels hopelessness and injects gladness of heart. God's Spirit spoke through Isaiah saying, Encourage the exhausted, and strengthen the feeble. Say to those with anxious heart, "Take courage, fear not. Behold, your God will come with vengeance; the recompense of God will come, but He will save you. Then the eyes of the blind will be opened and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped. Then the lame will leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute will shout for joy. For waters will break forth in the wilderness and streams in the Arabah. The scorched land will become a pool and the thirsty ground springs of water; in the haunt of jackals, its resting place, grass becomes reeds and rushes. A highway will be there, a roadway, and it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, but it will be for him who walks that way, and fools will not wander on it — Isaiah 35:3-8

40 3. Jacob had such an experience in Genesis 28 and it impacted the remainder of his life. The Heavens opened and he was told of his destiny and that of his descendants. He discovered the Lord's presence and Heaven's host assigned to co-labor with man. Eventually, his nature was changed and he entered the destiny revealed in this experience. 4. Spiritual vision from the revelatory realm of Heaven provides hope derived by a revelation of our calling and destiny; hope dispels hopelessness. That is the promise of Ephesians 1:17-18. 5. It is not difficult to discern our present condition. Nevertheless, I personally desire to be a loyal servant like the ones who ventured into the land of promise and returned with a faithful report in the days of Moses. Yes, there are giants in the land, but God is able to empower us to overcome. This impartation will strengthen our feeble knees and encourage our downcast hearts.

41 6. Life to Dry Bones. The prophet Ezekiel was taken to a valley of dry bones. He was not instructed to condemn them, but to prophesy life to them. He said, I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army. Then He said to me, "Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel; behold, they say, "Our bones are dried up and our hope has perished. We are completely cut off.' "Therefore prophesy and say to them, "Thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you into the land of Israel. 7. That is our hope and expectation. We desire to breathe life into dry bones and begin to see them take shape and form a troop of those who overcome. 8. Though the western church may look like a valley of dry bones, I believe the Lord sees her prophetically as an exceedingly great army. We are convinced our nation and the western church has an incredible destiny yet to be fulfilled. When people are given a glimpse of their individual role in that destiny, it transforms them and sets them on the course to repentance and the impartation of the Christ-like nature. 9. They see the cause of God and are forever changed and have the joy of their salvation restored. We are seeing that happen now. Strongholds of hopelessness, despair, depression and other oppressive mind-sets will be overcome when God's “Zoe” life is breathed into this army.

42 ZZ. Shining Forth of His Glory; The Radiance of His Beams to Behold. 1. We are living in a day when God's Glory will be displayed. The Lord will express joy in His saints and release strength for the battle and hope to displace hopelessness. 2. The prophet Habakkuk expressed a day of visitation that would convey both the Lord's power and His glory. He prophesied that, His splendor covers the heavens, and the earth is full of His praise. His radiance is like the sunlight; He has rays flashing from His hand, and there is the hiding of His power. Before Him goes pestilence, and plague comes after Him --- Habakkuk 3:3-5 3. Beams of spiritual light emerging from the Lord's hands are a symbol for the demonstration of His great power. In a day of visitation, God will execute His justice. This portion of His attributes will produce a season of deliverance and blessing for the righteous and judgment on unrighteousness.
