Receiving The Kingdom (Part 14)

Hosea 6:3 [KJV] declares: < 3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. >

Joel 2:23-24 [NKJV] also similarly declares: < 23 Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God; for He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for youthe former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. 24 The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil. >

The Early Rain and the Latter Rain being poured out – together, “in the first” – points to the end-time outpouring of the HOLY SPIRIT, on all flesh [see Joel 2:28], that will bring in the final harvest of the Kingdom [see Matt 24:14] before the 2nd Coming of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.

The outpouring of the HOLY SPIRIT will flow into the following realities:

  1. As extracted from Hebrews 6:4-6.
  • We will be enlightened; and in this enlightening we will actualize “the Beginnings” of the four prophetic flows of this end-time revival that will take us into the next Age:

i.        We will taste of the heavenly gift – JESUS CHRIST

ii.        We will become partakers of the HOLY SPIRIT

iii.        We will taste the good Word of GOD

iv.        We will taste the powers of the age to come

  1. As extracted from Matthew 7:21-23.
  • We will prophesy in YESHUA’s Name
  • We will cast out many, many demons in YESHUA’s Name
  • We will perform many miracles in YESHUA’s Name

The Early Rain and the Latter Rain being poured out – together – will result in us being enlightened to behold and to understand and to function in Kingdom realities, as the Mystery of CHRIST is opened in our inward parts [see Col 1:26-29] as the Testimony of JESUS [see Rev 19:10b] becomes reality. This will be a functional reality opened in an online Witness, an operating reality, through the HOLY SPIRIT’s manifestation of the Light of YESHUA’s Life – in and through the fabric of YESHUA’s Witness within us and amongst us [see 1 John 5:10a, NKJV; Rev 3:14b; 1 John 5:8]. YESHUA’s Witness – addressed as the faithful and true Witness in Revelation 3:14b – is wholly and exclusively accessible by the HOLY SPIRIT [see John 16:14, 13-15].

Tongues are a powerful and effective gift to enter and operate in the Witness of JESUS CHRIST, by the HOLY SPIRIT [see Rom 8:2, 1-4]. The Witness of JESUS CHRIST gives functional expression to the Mystery of CHRIST. Paul attests to the power that works mightily within him as a practical reality of CHRIST in him, the revelation of the Mystery of CHRIST [see Col 1:29, 26-29 + Phil 4:13 + Eph 3:20].

In this operating reality of the Witness of JESUS CHRIST in us [and amongst us], we are enabled and empowered to function in the Name of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, by the HOLY SPIRIT [see John 16:14-15].

And, in YESHUA’s Witness, we will behold [see and understand] the King [see Isa 33:16-17, KJV]; and, as Paul declares in Colossians 1:29 [NASB], we will come alive to the power that works mightily within us – in Spirit, Water and Blood [see 1 John 5:8, 10c; + Eph 3:20c] – to give us exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think; so that we communicate and operate in realities in which the LORD JESUS CHRIST upholds all things by the Rhema Word of His Power [see Heb 1:3b].

In this empowered enlightenment – in us and amongst us – will manifest every good and perfect gift defined in CHRIST JESUS for application in and through members of the Body of MESSIAH according to YESHUA’s call over us [see 1 Peter 4:10-11, KJV].

As James 1:17 [NKJV] declares: < 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights …. >.

The communication of every good and perfect gift – which is the Dynamic of Kingdom Provision in the eternal economy of our salvation – is made in what YESHUA declares is the Light of Life [see John 8:12 + John 1:4].

We will be in a real sense be transfigured in the Light of YESHUA’s Life, as this revival brings us into operating positions in the Mount of the LORD – by the SPIRIT, from our inward parts [see Isa 33:16-17; Heb 12:22-24; Ps 24:3-4; 15:1-2].

As we are transfigured [by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS] we will at appointed times behold realities – in and of – the Kingdom of GOD. As YESHUA was transfigured in the Mount of the Transfiguration, we will be transfigured in the appointed time(s) of the LORD [YHWH]! It will be as a ‘Light Switch’ is switched on and we will see and hear and know [see 1 John 5:14-15]. I understand the switch being switched on as primarily being a manifestation of the Gift of Faith, which is a download of the faith of YESHUA through His Witness in our inward parts!

The Gift of Faith will enable us to see and operate in the Kingdom of GOD at the speed of thought manifested in the Witness in Spirit, Water and Blood.

As Genesis 22:14 [KJV] declares: “In the Mount of the LORD it shall be seen [and as a consequence be provided, NASB].”

What is seen in the faithful and true Witness in us and amongst us {see Rev 3:14b [NASB] + 1 John 5:10a [NKJV] + 1 John 5:8}, will be manifested as YHWH’s provision [see Isa 33:16; Isa 4:4-6] to us in the last days of this age.

Oil and New Wine are proclaimed as the prophetic conduits of YHWH’s provision from the Mount of the LORD in the last days of this age.

The oil is the unction of CHRIST that energizes the Witness in us. The oil, the unction of CHRIST, is an expression of the seven Spirits of GOD perfected and completed into an unction to function by the HOLY SPIRIT in CHRIST JESUS [see Ex 27:20; Rev 5:6; Rom 8:2].

The new wine is the living functional dynamic of the life of YESHUA manifested in our state of being as we function by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS, through the unction of the Oil.

The Oil and the New Wine will be untouched in the Tribulation (see Joel 2:24; Rev 6:6c).

The Oil and the Wine is the wealth of our salvation, unfolding the ‘life resources’ of the Kingdom.

What Isaiah [33:6, NASB] declares as: < 6 And He will be the stability of your times, a wealth of salvation, wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is his treasure. >

The Oil is fired in the lamp of our spirit to manifest the new Wine of the Light of Life [see Prov 20:27; Matt 25:1-12].

This is why the Candlestick is the prophetic symbol of the Body of MESSIAH [see Rev 2-3; Zech 4:1-3, 12-14] predestined to carry the unction of MESSIAH as Light [see Matt 5:14] to a world covered in deep darkness [see Isa 60:1-3].

The spiritual construct of the Mystery of CHRIST revealed and manifested in us [see Col 1:26-27] will be the Light of Life [see 2 Cor 4:6-7, NKJV]. And, as YESHUA declared, greater things than these will we do in His Name as the Light of YESHUA’s Life is made manifest in us and amongst us [see John 14:12, 12-14; 16:22-28].

However, if during this revival our eye turns bad, then we will be filled with the light of darkness that unveils the domain of darkness [see Matt 6:22-23]. The Domain of Darkness is the domain of the anti-CHRIST: “operating with all the power of false wonders, signs and miracles, in accord with the activity of satan.

As noted in 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12 < 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. 8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; 9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. >

Notice YESHUA’s words of warning in Matthew 6:23: that if our eye is bad, how great then, will be the darkness! This is the power of the occult, the power of deception, that led 1/3 of the angels, into the fall away from GOD.

As YHWH declares over Lucifer in his fall, in Isaiah 14:12 [NKJV]: < 12 How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! … >.

Let not “how you have fallen”, become YHWH’s lament over our lives.

The ‘eye’ refers to what we choose to believe and to see and pursue. To see rightly we must know the Word of GOD through the construct of a circumcised heart of flesh [see 2 Cor 3:3, NKJV].

As a man thinks in his heart, so is he [see Prov 23:7, KJV]. While YHWH makes the ‘seeing eye’ and the ‘hearing ear’ [see Prov 20:12]; which are functions of the heart [see Matt 5:8]; it is we who have to choose to see and to hear [see Ps 51:10; 2 Cor 3:3, NKJV].

While we are all prone to making mistakes, we can get back on track through repentance. However, ultimately our choices are governed by our nature and our character.

Carrying great power requires us to stand in the character and nature of JESUS CHRIST which is evidenced as the Fruit of the HOLY SPIRIT [see Gal 5:22-23].

The fruit of the HOLY SPIRIT manifests as the HOLY SPIRIT perfects and completes us in the character and nature of JESUS CHRIST. The fruit of the HOLY SPIRIT unfolds us in the image of JESUS CHRIST [see Rom 8:29, 28-30].

We must pray the revelation of Galatians 2:20 KJV, into our being, so that we can successfully navigate the end of this age: < 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. >

As YHWH declares in Isaiah 66:1-3 < 1 Thus says the LORD, “Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool. Where then is a house you could build for Me? And where is a place that I may rest? 2 “For My hand made all these things, thus all these things came into being,” declares the LORD. “But to this one I will look, to him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word. >

Amen: come, LORD JESUS.
