"And how shall they preach, except they be sent?" Romans 10:15a
Many are asking questions about what is going on with the church? Things are changing as God is preparing His bride for a higher glory in the church, taking His body to the next level in her destiny in reaching full maturity, unto perfection, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Jesus Christ. These things are progressive in the process of glorification, but are hidden to anyone who is not diligently seeking God in truth and revelation. These things relate to the proceeding Word of God, for out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks; therefore, we are referring to the heart of God as His Word comes or proceeds to the church in the dimension of time though the works were finished from the foundation of the world. The Word or Logos is forever settled in heaven and is revealed in the earth according to time and space as the proceeding Word, the Logos manifested in and through the body of Christ as the revelation of Jesus Christ, the Word. Now with that said, let us take a look at the current state of the church in relation to government, revelation, and glory. There are three major changes that occur as Gods appointments with mankind in the earthly realm are manifested in revelation of His name, His purpose, and will. The first is visitation, followed by manifestation, then the last step of glorification. The final stage of process will be in the manifestation of the sons of God taking the kingdoms of this world, and making them the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ.
These things are to be revealed the closer we come to seeing Jesus face to face, when Jesus presents a glorious bride to Himself, without spot or wrinkle; that is, when Jesus presents Himself to Himself a glorious bride that has come to the fullness of his measure in stature. Anointing flows downward, not upward; therefore, Jesus flows as the head down to His body (the church) ending at His feet, bringing the body into one as every joint supplieth to the edifying of itself in love. The body cannot be edified without the Lord Jesus as He is love is Essence. Shall the Lord find faith when He comes to the earth? The church only has faith as she receives the things of God. Lets take a look at what the Lord has spoken concerning these things. Jesus told his disciples that he had many things to tell them after they had walked with him for three and one half years, but that they were not able to bear these things at the present time. But the Holy Ghost would lead them and guide them into all truth, and show them things that were to come. Any time that there is a new level in God, there are new devils that must be overcome by faith in order to take the kingdom of God by force. In my opinion, this is exactly where the church is at present time as she is destined for glory being fought by the devils.
Notice the focus on things as it relates to the faith of Jesus Christ. Heb 11:1 - Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. It is these things of truth of the Word as it comes to the church in proceeding Word that the body of Christ lives by; for man shall live by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God as it relates to the present truth in the church in the earthly realm of dominion. The church as it is propelled to the next level of glory must receive the things of God as it is revealed in time and space in the earth as it is in heaven, walking in the light as Jesus is in the light. The God-life requires that the church moves in truth, as rivers of living waters flow before the throne of God as the crystal sea. The church is at another crossroads; some will follow on to know the Lord desiring the new wine; others will not follow on, saying that the old wine is better. Some will refer to the good old days; the Word declares that those who say this are not wise.
Pr 28:5 - Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.
The body of Christ, as the church, who loves that Lord above all governments of men, money, and the world will understand judgment as it pertains to faith.
Isa 25:6 - And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.
Isaiah talks of the great feasts of the Lord when the church is refined as pure gold through tribulations and persecutions which are the manifest token of the righteous judgment of God that brings about faith that grows exceedingly and charity that abounds one to another in the body of
Christ. God will turn the church upside down in a great shaking so that all that can be shaken may be removed, so that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. Seeing then that we as the church cannot be removed, let us have grace whereby we may serve God with reverence and Godly fear. For it is only through the things of God in knowing Him, that the church will stand in the evil day.
Isa 29:16 - Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
The true apostles and prophets will prophesy of these things as they proclaim the judgment of God.
Isa 30:10 - Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
It is easy to be led away from the strait path, thinking that we are in truth; just as Peter thought it was an impossible thing for his Lord to go to Calvary to be crucified. The same is true today, for the church, the bride of Christ, will also have the judgments of God in bringing forth many sons and daughters to glory. For Jesus rebuked Peter saying that he savored the things of men and not the things of God.
Mr 10:32 - And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him.
Jesus knew the things that were coming upon him as the head just as we shall know the things that are coming upon the church as His body.
The voice of the prophets are as the foxes in the desert, for they have not stood in the gap nor made up the hedge for the people of God to stand in the day of the battle of the Lord Jesus. Most do not know that there is a great battle ahead because the trumpet has not given a distinctive sound; therefore, no one prepares himself/herself for the day of battle. (Ezekiel 13:3).
Heb 11:1 - Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
When the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? Does the church know the things of faith as it pertains to present truth of the Word? It is through the things of the Word that the church comes into faith as she walks in the light as Jesus is in the light. For the Holy Ghost will show us things to come as He guides us into all truth.
The order that God moves in the earth as pertaining to the growth of the kingdom of God must be honored by the church in order to see and experience the latter rain in the earth. Man has built their own systems of government in the name of the Lord Jesus, expecting God to honor their work. However noble and honest mans intentions in manifesting the kingdom of God, God will not confirm mans altars and worship, but demands His will and way to be obeyed. It is to this intent, after much prayer of the DBM team, that we have been led to go into the highways and hedges preaching Jesus Christ outside any church affiliation or manmade organizations in order to build the kingdom of God. To those who stand with us in this work and ministry, the following reflects our feelings as to the leading of God in our ministry.
1Co 12:28 - And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
The order that DBM will follow, will be that stated by Paul in the above scripture to the church at Corinth. First apostles (sent ones) are called of God and sent to build the kingdom of God by establishing churches, ordaining elders and pastors. There are two offices that God uses in the revelation of Jesus Christ, not just by the study of Word whereby all may follow on to know Jesus, but divine revelation from the heart of God to these two offices as to the proceeding Word of God. These two offices are apostles and prophets that have been removed by the organization of man.
Eph 3:5 - Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit.
This is divine order that has been usurped by mans ideas and organizations. And ultimately has broken the flow from the head being Jesus Christ, down to the body. Then the Holy Ghost ultimately flows to the feet of the church; the present church body in the earthly realm. This disorder against Gods government has inhibited the church from birthing the manchild in the revelation of Jesus. Secondarily prophets are the second of the gifting of God to the church as the eyes in not only prophecy, but also divine revelation. The office of a prophet has been removed as well. Thirdly are teachers that include the office of pastors and evangelists. Notice that the headquarters of denominations are not listed as first or second to that of the teachers. It is mans organizations that cut off the flow of God to the church. It is only when the divine order is believed and adhered to that the body of Christ can come together, no office being overburdened in the load of feeding the church as Gods body. After these, we see miracles or Gods intervention into the affairs of man meeting spiritual as well as natural needs. Why dont we see miracles? We do not see miracles because we have substituted Gods order with mans ideas and altars hewn with iron. Following miracles are the gifts of healing thereby keeping the body of Christ in health. Why is the body of Christ so sickly? You guessed it.
The body of Christ comes together as one perfect man with helps in ministry bearing their proper burdens for the work of God, relieving the five fold to give themselves to continually praying and the ministry of the Word. Following this perfect order allows the governments to align themselves with Gods will and purpose in and through the body of Christ in revealing Jesus to the world. After all, it takes good business sense to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. And finally, diversities of tongues is the final gifting of God to the church in order to reach all nations for Jesus Christ. This is the global plan of God in order to reach the world for Jesus Christ, making the kingdoms of this world the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ.
The current state of the church being in a lull can be speculated to be for a number of reasons. Some believe that it is due to leaving a certain level of standards. Others will state that the church has left her first love. Still others believe that the church has left the old paths wherein is the good way and have become complacent with the world. As all these may be true, the primary reason for the lull in the church is because God is changing seasons, going from one season to the next on Gods calendar. Paul means pause, intermission. Paul stated that immediately after his departure grievous wolves would come in not sparing the flock. The Pentecostal movement went into a lull just as Paul had spoken. We believe at DBM that God is changing seasons for the church propelling her into a higher realm of glory and is orchestrating the same in this present day.
Judgment will be laid to the line and righteousness to the plummet as the church is measured in relation to Jesus Christ. The consumption decreed will overflow in righteousness revealing the only true God and eternal life; the God of all glory, the One and only Jehovah LORD; Jesus Christ. The reason for judgment is revelation in and through the church of Jesus Christ as the body of Christ manifested in the earthly realm. The church will be propelled by God to fulfill His will in the earth as He has appointed, in obtaining a glorious bride without spot or wrinkle. Even though the works were finished from the foundation of the world, the church as the body of Christ must have the experiential in revealing Jesus in taking the kingdoms of the world and making them the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ.
If God has dealt with you in joining with this ministry, please let me hear from you. You may be an apostle, a prophet, or teacher. If you have the same vision, please lets join together. You on the other hand may be called for helps or governments and wish to join with someone of like faith, please contact us. I pray God to unite us all in one for His glory and honor.
God saves the best for last. Look up for you have a great destiny.
