“I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and make you go upright,” Leviticus 26:13.
There is a breaking in the body of Christ that is taking place. And I’ve been hearing the Spirit of God say that He is desiring in this hour to break the old in order to usher in the new wine of God’s Spirit. But in order to move into and forward with the new God is calling His people, His apostolic leaders, His pastors, all of His servants to leave the old behind in order to make room for the new.
As I’ve been called by God to minister and preach the Gospel to the nations, I have found that in many places there are many added traditions thereby hindering the flow of God’s Spirit. There have been multiple places where they did not want you to minister unless you followed a certain code for clothing.
This is a season of BREAKING man-made traditions and customs that have not originated with God. It is time to BREAK any ritual that is not in alignment with the Word of God. God is saying that in this season He wants to change and break the spirit of religion and that includes the religious mindsets of many leaders in the body of Christ.
When Jesus was here during His earthly ministry He did not hesitate to confront the religious leaders concerning their man-made religious laws that did not come from God. They had to wash their dishes a certain way. They had to dress a certain way in order to be right with God. They had hundreds of laws that were not mandated by God but from men.
God is saying that in this season He is bringing us back to the place of true worship where we do not focus on the outward but on the inward. That is what the Lord is looking at. When no one else saw David as a future King, God looked into the heart of David and saw a young man fit and destined to be a mighty King and man of God.
Whatever needs to be broken in our lives can be broken and destroyed by the Spirit of God. There is nothing that He cannot provide deliverance for. What needs to be broken in your lives? Are their mindsets that need to be brought into the alignment of God’s written Word? Know this my dear brothers and sisters.
When you are desiring to live in complete obedience to God the word of the Lord to you is this:
IT IS BROKEN!
