Each of us has an appointment on earth. The principalities or devils ruling the earth have hid this truth making many of us feel like we wish we were some place else or unworthy of the call.
“Regardless, each one should lead the life that The LORD has assigned to him and to which God has called him.” 1 Corinthians 7:17
I am here to tell you — you are right where God has placed you!
When we come into agreement with His Plans; we Live, obey, and love those around us! Start believing right now that you are right where GOD put you!
The message this week is written from the Book of Ezekiel, Chapter 7. I would like to suggest that we all become familiar with this book. Read it, listen to it and search out it’s meaning for yourself using bible commentaries.
Our understanding of scripture is important for God’s word to manifest within us and through us into in our lives.
Ezekiel was in Babylon speaking to Israel and his listeners were fellow exiles. His message to the land of Israel was to announce coming judgment upon them.
He was telling them, God would judge them according to their ways: God promised to bring simple justice to the people of Judah and Jerusalem.
As a kingdom, their ways would determine their judgment, and the judgment would be severe: He was saying, “My eye will not spare you, nor will I have pity”.
“‘The end! The end has come upon the four corners of the land! The end is now upon you, and I will unleash my anger against you. I will judge you according to your conduct and repay you for all your detestable practices. I will not look on you with pity; I will not spare you. I will surely repay you for your conduct and for the detestable practices among you. Then you will know that I AM The LORD.” Ezekiel 7:1-4
Prophetically, Ezekiel could see the end for the entire land of Israel. No place would be spared. There would remain no land under the control of the tribes of Israel. T heir “party” of rebellion and idolatry was over — now the end had come upon them.
The purpose of these verses today is to hear God is calling for refinement. To reside, overcome this place of refinement or challenges is to obey God’s call and to follow Him to enter our appointment.
The weariness of the plan-demic has created a desire within us to really hear God’s Voice. He is opening more up to us by refilling us with the Oil of His Spirit. Our first step is to believe God has a way out! Praise GOD!
This season of refinement is to ready The Church for His Harvest.
In this season, our belief has increased and we feel his nearness. We have been drawn to Him, like we haven’t felt in years. Many had lost their passion, and didn’t even realize it!
But now, as we are given victory over areas in our life that have causing so much suffering just like the Israelites in the wilderness.
Our new freedom within has caused God to pour out His Spirit. A new passion is being awakened for Him to transport you. It could even be ground shaking like the Church of Ephesus in the Book of Acts.
You have noticed your conversations and actions are starting to glorify Jesus.
We sometimes think we know all we need to know, but in reality, when we humble our hearts, our spirit is given permission to guide us. He is our helper in all situations to have one Heart and Mind with God.
This season of serious concentration on The LORD has opened our spiritual eyes. We have a new understanding when Jesus said,
“Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14
Our spiritual wells are actually welling up within us!
As we grow in our relationship with The LORD, his living waters come by way of dreams, visions, word of knowledge, prophetic words etc.
His mysteries spark a fire deep within us to seek Him. This hunger amazes us as we begin to hear His Voice and clarity in areas where we use to have questions, like Ezekiel in Ezekiel 8:1-4
“And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I sat in my house with the elders of Judah sitting before me, that the hand of the Lord God fell upon me there. Then I looked, and there was a likeness, like the appearance of fire—from the appearance of His waist and downward, fire; and from His waist and upward, like the appearance of brightness, like the color of amber. He stretched out the form of a hand, and took me by a lock of my hair; and the Spirit lifted me up between earth and heaven, and brought me in visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the north gate of the inner court, where the seat of the image of jealousy was, which provokes to jealousy. And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, like the vision that I saw in the plain.“ Ezekiel 8:1-4
In my journey, when I discovered what God was sharing through my dreams and visions, He gripped me even tho it was thrilling!
This thirst for living water dwells within each of us and it’s accessible for all who seek Him.
Just like the people in Acts must have felt (Acts 4:1-4) when Peter and John were instructing the people, the priests, the chief of the temple police, and some Sadducee’s to proclaim the resurrection from the dead had take place in Jesus. (Acts 4:1-3)
As soon as Peter and John were left go they went to their friends and told them what the high priest and religious leaders had said.
Having shared this report their friends lifted their voices and prayed together. While they were praying together the whole meeting trembled and shook. They were all filled with The Holy Spirit and continued to speak God’s word with fearless confidence.
This whole congregation of believers were united as one – one heart, one mind! This is what I believe God is doing, He is Gripping His Church to become One Heart 💜 — to move in a corporation.
The power in this will be giving by the resurrection of the Son, Jesus, grace was given to all of them. We will receive more from GOD who made heaven, earth and seas than any other generation.
This division between believers is considered scattered seed. We are told by Jesus while sitting in a boat by the sea, that only those CLOSE to God’s Kingdom have eyes to see and given insight.
“Whose eyes are open but don’t see a thing, whose ears are open but don’t understand a word, who avoid making an about face and getting forgiven.” Mark 4:12
We must move or shift past these man-made doctrines, deceptions and beliefs [seeds] to enter God’s body of Ekklesia where unity is found. This is how we win the war on earth!
Jesus said, “Listen carefully to what I am saying, be wary of the shrewd advice that tells you how to get ahead .”
We are to be generous givers not fretting and covetous, otherwise our God given seed will fall onto gravel allowing the enemy full authority to snatch it away.
If we are finding lots of spiritual warfare, we have division within our hearts! Pray for GOD to show you how to forgive to shift fear to belief to pass over this dark assessment.
If we have stress and worry of things to come, our seed is strangled and we cannot hear God. If we can’t hear God speaking, spend time with Him. He will show you your strongholds or obstacles within your land [heart].
But the seed planted in good soil represents those who hear The Word, embrace it and produce a harvest beyond their wildest dreams!
Literally, God will send you dreams, vision and words of knowledge as you read His Word. He is opening this up now for you.
These fertile seeds mature in God’s Kingdom as they are watered by His Fountains, springs, rivers and wells of intimacy.
When we are alone with Him, He goes over everything, sorting out the tangles and untying the knots until our seed is fully formed and it’s Harvest Time. Hallejauh!
I keep hearing over and over, “My Ekklesia, My Governing Body, shall drink from my flowing water to restore their seed placed within their Temple [DNA].
I AM bringing My Body to life, they will feel a surge of My Power to heal their mind, body and soul.”
When the church becomes GOD’S BODY moving as one, I believe America will be restored!
If we look at the book of Exodus, Moses was directed by GOD to move the whole company of Israel in stages from the wilderness of Sin.
They set camp at Rephidim (Place of Rest or Stay) and there wasn’t a drop of water in the entire camp for the people to drink.
The people were getting mad and they complained to Moses, “Why did you take us from Egypt and drag us out here with our children and nominals to die of thirst?”
The people made Moses nervous so He cried out saying, “If you don’t do something God, they will kill me.”
God told Moses to go out ahead of the people, taking with him some of the elders of Israel. Take the staff you used to strike the Nile and go.
I’m going to be present you there on the rock at Horeb [dryness or dried up]. God tells Moses to strike the rock and water will gush out of it and the people will drink.
Our symbolism is GOD is the Rock and he is our water to drink.
Moses does as he is told and water became available to the people. He names the place Messiah (Testing Place) and Mariah (Quarreling) because the Israelites and their testing of God when they said, “Is God here with us.”
A Word from The LORD
This week while cleaning up the breakfast dishes, I heard “KAMLOOPS”.
I am familiar with the city in British Columbia, Canada. I believe this word carries a two fold message.
First, no matter where we are traveling or regardless where we are in our spiritual journey, by our faithfulness we will enter God’s Ekklesia.
The symbolism of Kamloops is the city where the North and South rivers of Thompson River are joined.
Once we enter God’s Ekklesia, we become His Transportation highway or for all denominations to carry the light of GOD!
God is joining two rivers! MAN has divided us into religion, but GOD sees us as one moving cooperation. We become like a River.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
Ekklesia is the transportation highway, once believers come into agreement of this truth. All the man made religions will pass away and the cross of JESUS will be picked up and carried!
This statement gives me the chills! I can’t wait! (See bottom for Scriptures to support this revelation)
“Do not fear for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are mine. When pass through these waters I will be with you. I will say to the North, give them up and to the south, do not hold them back.” Luke 29:22
Saints of Zion, God is asking us to pray His Ekklesia into action! This truth will set many believer’s free from the kingdom of Darkness.
We have confirmation from Psalms 148:14,
“He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye The LORD.” Psalms 148:14 (KJV)
That very morning prior to hearing “Kamloops”, I had a dream of a beautiful door way full of flowing light.
As I got closer, I could see it was a doorway to new positions or anointing for The Body of Christ.
I heard The Spirit say, “This Doorway takes you to My Harvest.
More lock-downs are coming, but those willing to enter this Doorway will enter my land of abundance.
Many Mountains sides will be dry like a dessert but not for those who enter My Mountain.
This Mountain is My Church of Ekklesia.
The Key to this Door is found in your secret place of Prayer.
Come to the Door, step inside….”
As I stepped through the doorway, I noticed a black rug or mat on the floor just inside that read, “17:11” in bold white numbers. I woke up.
This Doorway is an increase for those who will respond in faith and obedience to The LORD in this Ekklesia moment — an increase of strength, vision, and spiritual perception, an increase of wisdom and strategy.
God is taking us to another level of seeing and hearing by the Spirit. He is increasing our awareness of the authority we have in our speaking and praying.
Our confidence in Him is increasing. Our boldness is increasing. And we will remain steadfast at our post and watch as The Holy Spirit works through our obedience to set things in motion so that The Word of The LORD is activated to accomplish His Plans.
In the days that followed, I looked up Kamloops, a city in British Columbia, Canada, but it’s Trading Post that had begun in the 1800’s.
In 1821 the trading concession was sold to the Hudson Bay Company, who moved its Trading Post to Kamloops in 1862 — right before the gold rush. (Source -Britannica)
Kamloops became the service center for cattle ranching, lumber and economic activities as there was a copper mine near by as well as an Indian Reservation for fur trading.
We can’t miss the symbolism here that Kamloops was perfectly established where the Thompson River was joined by both the North and South rivers.
To enter this glorious Kamloops or trade route, we must abide in God. Our spiritual trading post merchandise is wheat, wine, oils & balsam refer to the spirit of God (John 12:24).
Then, Holy Spirit led me to Luke where Jesus says,
”People will come from the east, west, north and south to recline at my table in the kingdom of God. Those willing to enter will be released from their xx years of bondage on this sabbath [rest] day!” Luke 13:29
Also, I can’t forget to mention another important key to this revelation were the numbers “17:11” on the rug just inside the door way.
I felt a witness when reading Acts 17:11 — which is also my life verse from The LORD.
“These were more]fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received The Word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.” Acts 17:11
He has taught me everything I know and share. He wants this for His Church of Ekklesia. Our world’s religious system has taught man that to find God go to church .
God is saying, yes please go to Church, but come to me for an intimate training and fellowship in your living room, on your front porch in your car going to work.
Each one is to search the scriptures to have the nobleness and character of a Berean. We are to study the Scripture every day.
God is releasing hidden manna for this generation in His Word. No man on earth has been given this privilege. Let’s not waste this opportunity!
Our take away here is we are to stay seated with Christ, seek Him in your secret place of prayer. For He is seated at the right Hand of God, a place of revelation, wisdom and safety, until Jesus arrives on the clouds of Heaven. (Mark 14:62)
“You are those who have stood by me in my trials. And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me, so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” Luke 22:28-29
The entire Nation of Israel accepted God’s covenant at Mount Sinai, but most of them failed to obey The LORD and died in the wilderness.
In the years that followed the nations entrance into the Promise Land was problematic, until God moved.
Last week, we discovered how GOD sent Gideon (Judges 6). The people had gradually declined spiritually and it was the remnant that prayed and obeyed God’s word who remained faithful to The LORD.
The remnant are the ones The LORD has mercy on and plans to destroy those who come against them (Jeremiah 47:4).
Are we in fact living in The Days of Ezekiel?
The world look different because our culture has advanced since the time of Ezekiel, but the hearts of our leaders today have defiled our land with their greed.
The LORD’s Judgment is evident. He has withdrawn His Favor in our time of great distress and we must not misunderstand the greatest tragedy of Israel was that they refused to bring glory to God.
“Glory belongs to God, whose power is at work in us. By this power he can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. Glory belongs to God in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time and eternity!” Ephesians 3:20-21
According to the letters to the seven Churches in the book of Revelation, God always saves a faithful remnant.
Today, those of you reading and listening to this are God’s remnant (Revelation 2:24, 3:4-6) and you are the important key to His Plan. You are His Remnant.
Our spiritual peace is our guide as we plunge forth through the open doorway to our appointed positions and abundant harvest.
“I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid. And I will remove harmful beasts from the land, and the sword shall not go through your land.” Leviticus 26:6
No matter how big or small, we each play a part in the body of Christ. God planned it all. Our collective prayers to make us a cooperation or movement of the church of Ekklesia is God restoration plan.
Just like Gideon, we must pray for God to come save America, and every other Nation, save our children.
Join me, let us be praying every day! MOVE saints move, begin to Align yourselves with God.
Stop listening to the lies of the news, stop worrying about the politicians, instead pray that God begins to rise up strong government leaders and tear down leaders of darkness in our cities, communities and nations. God MOVE!
Let us be praying to GOD to bend us, reform us into His Honey Bees to carry out His Kingdom Assignments.
After all, we have been delivered from Egypt [ways of the world] and we have been given new eyes to see and new ears to hear!
It’s God’s time — with GOD everything works out perfectly!
We pray to The LORD God that He declare restoration of America and every other nation of their corrupted seed of iniquity. Burn away the chaff (Matthew 3:12).
We shall go forth to worship The LORD GOD!
Praise Jesus and thank you Father in Heaven in advance for setting your captives free!
Let your Kingdom Come and Your WILL be done on Earth as it is in heaven.
Man Made Religion Scriptures:
“He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.” Mark 7:6-9 (KJV)
“And The LORD took me as I followed the flock, and The LORD said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.” Amos 7:15 (KJV)
“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” Revelation 14:12 (KJV)
“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.” Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 (KJV)
“Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith The LORD. Therefore thus saith The LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith The LORD.” Jeremiah 23:1-2 (KJV)
