Let me post a reminder to some of you so you can know that a greater Glory is behind your warfare!
Did they just make your name great throughout the earth? Public humiliation will announce your private elevation!
You see, what the enemy didn’t know was the Prophet had already been sent by God to anoint you as the next leader for this hour.
God is about to use you to bring reformation and a revolution throughout the world!
You had to go through this last test and persecution in a Holy and Righteous way, so that when He sends you forth you will rise knowing that you have went through the different stages of international and global warfare and dimension of spiritual training, that was necessary for this hour.
You will have encountered your:
Family Persecution: Where they see who God says you are, but can’t treat you like the person you are ordained to be.
Scribes & Pharisees Persecution: Where they attack you from the leadership of the church, because your influence is greater than theirs and jealousy takes them over to the point they want to literally kill you, (Matthew 26:1-5).
Judas Betrayal: Where one of those who is close to you, sets you up for complete failure and orchestrates a setup to kill you, (Matthew 26:14-16).
Disciple Rejection: Where those you have poured into see you in warfare and instead of standing with you they deny you, (Matthew 26:31-35, 69-75)
Intercession Crisis: This is when you find yourself face to face with the pain and reality of your destiny, and the enemy comes in to try and make you walk away from your divine destiny, and those with you are not there to give you support and encouragement, (Matthew 26:36-46).
Caiaphas Trial: This is when they bring you before the leaders and present false accusations against you from leadership and a few people who want to get into the clique.
This is also the time when you announce your true identity and purpose to your accusers, (Matthew 26:57:68).
Betrayer’s Death: This is when your Judas recognizes that they have made a grave mistake by handing you over to your enemies and rather than live with the guilt, they find themselves destroying their own life and ministry, (Matthew 27:3-10).
Pilate Adversity: This is when you come before the leader to be judged unrighteously and the people ask for your life.
This is when they want to publicly destroy you, your name and your ministry. This is when they will accept a criminal in the Kingdom, over you, (Matthew 27:1-26).
Your Crucifixion: This is when your enemies think it’s over, because it seems you are losing or being attacked and the very people you have helped, and poured into, stand around to see if you are going to truly go down and lose everything.
This is when they think they are about to take everything you’ve got.
This is your dying-totally-to-self moment, and surrendering yourself to the perfect humiliation that is necessary to get you into your divine destiny.
This is also a time when you may question your faith and feel totally alone, as the transition takes place, (Matthew 27:32-56).
Restoration Of Your Life: This is the time when those who truly loved you and that were there at your crucifixion, come to help you, but realize that you are not in a dead place, but was only hidden away, so that your enemies couldn’t interfere with your completion.
This is the time when God publicly announces that you have been restored revived awaken to greater power authority and influence.
This is when you are now ready to go forth into all the world, preaching, teaching, baptizing and your name is now made great! (Matthew 28:1-20).
You see, while you all are fighting over church folks, I am going after the whole world.
People are trying to birth ONE tribe, while God has given some of our spiritual wombs the ability to birth TWELVE and to have influence in the earth!
