A word of exhortation and a call to kingship.
The LORD showed me a dream were I had purchased this church and it needed some work. The floor of the foundation needed restructuring and my husband and I had begun to build, but I was telling him we had to be careful how we build, as our enemies watched us build, and wondered what we would do with this church we had purchased that needed work!
The spirit of God is stirring the hearts of the people of God to both give and to work in this season!
The LORD wants His people to be the head and not the tail! He has called them to be both kings (queens) and priest in this season! Not, only are they called to be kings and priests in their own personal lives, but in every area of their lives has He called them to rule!
He spoke to me and said 2017 would be, “The year of the rule” when He would call His people to become accountable for the way they live in every area of their lives!
How do you know you have been called to reign as a king or a queen in God’s Army for His Kingdom?
Here are eight key points for those whom he has called and he has begun to process:
- Make a life-changing decision to seek wisdom (Proverbs 4:5).
- Seek knowledge which allows you to make wise choices (Proverbs 19:2).
The Amplified Bible translation of Exodus 31:3 says: “And I have filled him with the spirit of god, in wisdom and ability, in understanding and intelligence, and in knowledge, and in all kinds of craftsmanship.” (gifts and talents; as well as the office he has called you to work in).”
- Avoid wrong associations with people who you are not divinely connected to who will lead you down the wrong destiny! Remember King Solomon who allowed his wives to turn his heart away from God, (Deuteronomy 17:17).
For, I hear God saying, “No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that god will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13, TMB).
- Strive to have a good name which is better than riches walk in integrity (Proverbs 10:9).
A true king, queen or priest will strive to walk in both honest and integrity in God’s Kingdom.
- Strive to have the heart of a servant! Serving him with humility brings a certain reward, (Proverbs 22:4).
Instead of pride, deception, manipulation and control which brings about both destruction and a haughty spirit which is headed for a fall!
- Ask God for good leadership skills and abilities that starts with you. It’s you setting the example:
For example, “And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy god require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy god, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy god with all thy heart and with all thy soul, (Deuteronomy 10:12).
For, those who are called to lead are call to lead with both honesty and integrity in the Kingdom of God! And, are also called and encouraged to lead others by both precepts and example; as well!
- Remove and take off the limits, (Luke 1:37). Meaning nothing is impossible with God! Take the limits off God!
- Must have a warrior’s heart which is made and is prepared to fight in any battle no matter how difficult the trials and tests might be. For, they will not break rank but are willing to leap and to jump over walls for our LORD! They are both courageous and bold soldiers in His Army: the lion of the tribe of Judah! Because, the warrior is always armed and ready for battle! (Ephesians 6:11-20).
You see, God wants His people to be more than footman at war in the battlefield riding behind and beside some kings chariot, but He is calling and elevating them for higher heights in his kingdom!
You see, according to Wikipedia, a footman was someone who was a male domestic worker. And, they were a designated “Running Footman” derived from the attendants who ran beside or behind the carriages of aristocrats, many of whom were chosen for their physical attributes.
They ran alongside the coach to make sure it would not overturned by such obstacles as ditches or tree roots. In other words they were simply a servant or a high ranking butlers in the kingdom who were expendable compared to the kings, queens and priest in the kingdom!
God wants to know which one are you?
You see, the LORD had a controversy with the people and He said and spoke to Haggai and He spoke it to the people: “How is it that it’s the ‘right time’ for you to live in your fine new homes while the home, God ’s temple, is in ruins?”
Take a good, hard look at your life. Think it over. You have spent a lot of money, but you haven’t much to show for it. You keep filling your plates, but you never get filled up. You keep drinking and drinking and drinking, but you’re always thirsty.
You put on layer after layer of clothes, but you can’t get warm. And the people who work for you, what are they getting out of it? Not much — a leaky, rusted-out bucket, that’s what.” and, he said, “Here’s what I want you to do: climb into the hills and cut some timber. Bring it down and rebuild the temple. Do it just for me. Honor me. Instead of ambitions for yourselves, for nothing has come of it,” (Haggai 1:8-10).
The LORD is exhorting and encouraging many to come to the forefront and to trust Him to open many doors in this season by obeying Him by faith! He is gathering many as kings, queens and priests in this hour but it will take a leap of faith in this hour!
It will take you going from glory to glory in this hour! For, unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more, (Luke 12:48).
Are you ready for the transformation?
