When you first ask to be a kingdom representative, you signed up for kingdom boot camp! When you first asked to be a kingdom representative, you had no idea what must first be eliminated from your life. Then you have no idea what must be added to your life. And finally you have no idea what it’s going to take to get both of these things accomplished. When your are saved heaven will be your home, but when you are an ambassador heaven is in you and this world can no longer disappoint you because you have lost all confidence in it.
Some of you consider yourself a self made man or woman, and it kills you to ask for help. You love the feeling of accomplishing difficult tasks all by yourself. To admit you have a need for help, is outside your paradigm. So it is necessary for Me to eliminate the ugly self sufficient pride from your life.
I will do whatever is necessary to destroy an independent spirit and what I do, depends on how stubborn you are, even to breaking down your body, Genesis 32:24-25. You ask to be a kingdom representative, but how can you do it when there are no self independent persons in the kingdom. You may be saved but as long as you are self sufficient you will remain a body part rather than a part of the body. Independents are independent no matter how you use the word. If you are independent of the body you are actually trying to operate independent of Me, 1 Corinthians 12:20-27.
A spirit of independents in the world is looked on as good, but in the kingdom it is a form of rebellion, with the thoughts, I’ll do it my way, and I don’t need anyone else.
It causes you to be “like children, that can be tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;  As a part of the body other parts will be able to speak the truth in love, so you can grow up into Me in all things, because I am the head.  As the head I can flow to the whole body when it is fitly joined together and compacted by My love which every joint passes on, according to their gifting.
 This I say therefore, if you want to be an ambassador of My kingdom, you must stop walking as an independent, in the vanity of your mind,  With your understanding darkened, alienating yourself from the life of My Father. You no longer have an excuse, because you are no longer ignorant of how bad a self made, independent spirit is, in My kingdom, Ephesians 4:14-18.
You must join the body to enjoy My love as it flows through spiritual veins from joint to joint. Please understand that joining the body does not mean joining a church. There are many members of churches searching for a body and I AM leading them to My body near them.
