RESTORING THE FIRE OF GOD
So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. Acts 2:46,47
Just think, no building, they met at a porch, no Bibles, (most were illiterate) no pews or pulpit, no choir or Sunday school and no pastor! How in the world could they be a church? Simple, God was with them and His Spirit was in them!
This is the divine design of the assembly of God, in essence, to be a vineyard, in other words, nothing to restrain their growth and just as a vine will grow as far as it can if it is not restrained, so will the church! Today we plant churches in buildings and they become a potted plant with no room to grow, no growth and no fruit!
Today most of our New Testament evangelical charismatic bapti-costals have no clue what the true church of Jesus Christ looks like! Discipleship is Sunday school, the gospel is a sugary donut and coffee compared to the gut wrenching conviction brought about by the true gospel of Jesus Christ! No blood, no sacrifice, no conviction, no godly sorrow, no repentance and no salvation!
“Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:36-38
Many of those who heard the word believed and the number of men came to be about five thousand. Acts 4:4
This is true discipleship, preach the gospel, baptize in water, baptism in the Holy Spirit, train, equip and send! BAM! You have a brand new on fire disciple, free from the traditions and doctrines of men and demons, filled with God's Spirit and obeying the commands of Christ, to GO! The message these disciples were receiving was what it was like to walk with Jesus, pure and simple, spoken from those who not only talked the talk, but walked the walk with the Son of the living God!
This is why we don't see this kind of growth today, because no one will train and equip them to go and make more disciples, teaching others what they were taught and replicating the process in others! When someone is saved we fill him with rules and regulations and the do's and don'ts of Christianity and produce a dead and lifeless church member!
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. Matthew 28:19,20
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark 16:15-18
Making disciples of all nations is likened to a military operation with every believer signed on to do the work, to evangelize, equip, train and then send! Today however we are taught to show up, support pastor and his vision, write a check, go home, come back next Sunday and don't ever rock the boat!
The church of Jesus Christ doesn't even exist anymore, replaced by a retirement community of fat, lazy, complacent members of an elite country club! Many of whom are lost because the gospel has been sugar coated, watered down and perverted so that everyone can come in! This is a travesty propagated by the traditions of men, denominational teaching and a leadership ignorant of the word of the living God!
As I was writing this message the devil was condemning me saying I am being to tough on the church and looking for a scripture to complete the message God gave me the following! Praise be to God we must rise up and conquer the powers of darkness and complete the work that we have been given and fulfill the Divine Destiny in Christ Jesus!
I do not write these things to shame you, but as my beloved children I warn you. For though you might have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. Therefore I urge you, imitate me. For this reason I have sent Timothy to you, who is my beloved and faithful son in the Lord, who will remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach everywhere in every church. I Corinthians 4:14-17
Your servant in Christ, Timothy, the beloved and faithful, (LOL!)
NOTE: If I didn't love you and the true church of Jesus Christ I wouldn't be able to speak the truth to you in love regardless of the repercussions! May God bless!

RESTORING THE FIRE OF GOD
The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen. Acts 1:1,2
Just as Elijah built an altar with twelve stones and called down the fire of God, so Jesus built His altar with twelve living stones and the government of God was complete, ready to contain the Holy Fire of the Most High!
Jesus commanded His apostles to remain in Jerusalem and wait for the "Promise of the Father" and so they and the one hundred twenty disciples of Christ waited patiently for the "Baptism in the Holy Spirit!" Unbeknownst to them this was the future of the most powerful entity ever assembled in the history of mankind, about to change the entire known world!
The kingdom of Heaven had truly come to earth and with it the supernatural power of God about to be distributed to the first assembly of God together in one accord, waiting patiently for the Promise! Do you not see the difference in this powerful on fire assembly compared to the lukewarm complacent anemic (blood deficient) church we have today?
"For John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." Acts 1:5
YOU SHALL RECIEVE POWER
"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth," Acts 1:8
Jesus told His disciples that they would be witnesses, not that they should go and witness, something perverted by the traditions of man. A witness is someone who has seen something and then testifies of what he has seen! It is not a person who hands out tracks and tries to convince someone to pray the sinner's prayer, it is a witness of the supernatural power of God to transform a life!
Can you imagine the testimonies coming out of this assembly who were to be baptized in the Holy Presence of God and then witnessed their brothers and sisters all filled and speaking in tongues to thousands attending Pentecost? What a magnificent sight to behold seeing the most powerful entity in the creation poured out on ordinary folks who would send this testimony around the world and would transform mankind!
If we could only grasp the "Divine Design" given by the Father and restore His government and the Baptism in the Holy Spirit in the modern day church, I believe the fire would return and and this once powerful expression of Christ would again appear and transform this fallen world!
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Revelation 12:11
A RUSHING MIGHTY WIND
When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Acts 2:1,2
The fire fell on the altar of God and ignited a firestorm that has lasted for eons! There is a remnant of the people of God today who are filled with His Spirit and have carried out His commands to make disciples and reap a harvest in the earth!
Upon their baptism of the very fire of God they spoke with other tongues to those who were attending Pentecost and they were hearing them speak in their own language and Peter stood up and preached the gospel to them and 3000 were saved! 3000 visitors to Jerusalem got saved and then called for their families to come and move in with the 120! What a spectacle of the grace and mercy of God!
Can you imagine your church receiving 3000 new, on fire converts with no place to live and pretty soon their families would be showing up? How would this new fledgling church take care of this enormous harvest of souls? The answer is, they would all live in common!
Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need. Acts 2:44,45

RESTORING THE FIRE OF GOD
Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, “Behold, I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.” I Peter 2:6
The Chief Apostle and Master Builder is Jesus! It is He who constructs His temple in the earth using living stones that will become God's building and will contain the Holy Fire of God! Man has ignored the true design of the temple of God, choosing instead to emulate the world's sanctuaries and architectural majesties created by the flesh and selfish ambitions of men!
In order to build, one must be apostolic in anointing and vision and free from the lust of the flesh! The blueprint must be Kingdom inspired and supernatural in nature for it to be able to contain the fire and intensity of the awesome presence of the living God!
Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient, "The stone which the builders rejected, has become the chief cornerstone." and "A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense." They stumble being disobedient to the word to which they also were appointed. I Peter 2:7,8
THE ANCIENT ARCHITECT
And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord had come saying, "Israel shall be your name." Then with the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord. I Kings 18:31,32
Elijah was a precursor for us to examine and see the ancient architect's divine design yet to come in the future! Just as Elijah chose twelve stones, Jesus also chose twelve living stones to build His altar, the divine ekklesia and temple of God.
Built according to the establishment of the government of God which as the word speaks, rests on the shoulders of Christ Jesus! Without the twelve, God's government could not be established! Elijah proceeded to build and he had confronted the leadership and the false prophets just as Jesus confronted the Pharisees and the Sadducees in the beginning of His ministry that eventually led to His death, making Him the sacrifice for all mankind to be saved.
Once the stones were in place, the wood for the fire, the sacrifice and the outpouring of twelve waterpots, Elijah, a type and shadow of the Lord Jesus Christ could call down the very fire of the Most High! In the future Jesus would be crucified, buried, resurrected and ascend to the Father, thus sending down the glorious infilling of the Divine presence of God's Holy Spirit on 120 living stones!
"Hear me, O Lord, hear me that this people may know that You are the Lord God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again." Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench. I Kings 18:37,38
THE DOUBLE PORTION ANOINTING
So Elijah departed from there, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the twelfth. Then Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle on him. I Kings 19:19
This is a prophetic type and shadow of Jesus with His twelve and Elisha a type and shadow of the church to come that would receive a double portion of His Spirit! The mantle of Elijah represents the mighty outpouring on the 120 at Pentecost!
Jesus said that we, His disciples would do greater works than even He did while on the earth because He would ascend to the very throne of the Most High! Jesus chose twelve ordinary men to be His disciples and once He had trained them He gave them the gift of apostle. As I was writing this the Lord spoke to me about these men, some from the same family. Surely all of these men were not apostles and then the Lord Spoke and said, "No they were not until I gave them the gift of their apostleship!"
These twelve apostles were the first New Testament government of God, gifted to GO! Upon Judas Iscariot's fall from grace the apostles could not continue until a replacement could be named and they chose Matthias! Once this was accomplished the fire of God was almost ready to fall upon God's double portion anointed assembly of the living God!
And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you? Elisha said, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me. So he said, “You have asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you; but if not, it shall not be so.” Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. II Kings 2:8-11

RESTORING THE FIRE OF GOD
Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. Revelation 21:9-11
In order to restore the fire to the church of the Lord Jesus Christ one must look at the blueprint for the altar of God! The number twelve is the number for the government of God and the altar is the body of Christ that contains the fire that must be built with twelve stones!
(Before you read this very important message you must pray to receive spiritual sight in order to have this revealed to you. The ekklesia of God is a spiritual temple made of living stones, washed in water and the blood that enables them to contain the fire of Holy Spirit's intense anointing that will incinerate any remnant of the flesh!)
This message is apostolic in nature and unless you are an apostle or have an apostolic calling it wont make any sense to you. The apostle holds the key to the heavenly vault that contains the blueprint for the holy altar of God! Before you proceed, pray and ask God for the revelation of His spiritual house and then receive it in Jesus name!
Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west. Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. Revelation 21:12-14
THE MASTER BUILDER
For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, you are God's building. According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. I Corinthians 3:9-11
The apostle is God's master builder who holds the divine revelation of His church. All the New Testament churches were founded by apostles, not pastors! Jesus, the Chief apostle being our example to follow chose twelve apostles to be the stones in His altar, one a devil, Judas, who was later replaced by Matthias before the fire could fall!
Today if someone wants to start a church he just rents or buys a building, fills it with chairs, puts a sign in the front and hopes someone shows up. Sadly, the only signs people will see is the time and temperature and there will be no fire! There are thousands of these little store front churches led by pastors and they come and go with the wind! Are they bad? No not necessarily, some fruit is reaped and sometimes even an apostle happens to start one and God's blessing is upon it, but this design is all wrong, being constructed by the flesh!
When a pastor starts a church it becomes a pyramid with him on the top as CEO and all the little people under him who end up setting him on a pedestal and worship the creature (flesh) instead of the Creator! This demonic design came into being when Constantine made the church a state run organization that literally killed the Divine design of God's holy ekklesia!
Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. I Corinthians 3:12-15
THE TEMPLE OF GOD
Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. I Corinthians 3:15-17
We who have been washed in the blood of the Savior and have had our sins washed away and have received the very fire of God are His divine temple in the earth! This is where many fall short and build with wood, hay and stubble, earthly building materials that end up being incinerated!
In order to build the altar of God, a place of Sacrifice, Jesus must be the Cornerstone, that which all the other stones are laid. All the components of the gospel must be present for the altar to be correct: the water, the blood and twelve stones. One of the reasons for twelve stones or twelve apostles is for spiritual warfare. If one can put a thousand of the enemy to flight and two, ten thousand, twelve can chase 100 trillion of the enemies of God away!
This is why so much of God's work is destroyed, the enemy comes against even the best of man's intentions, but they have no unity in the Spirit with others of like mind to be able to fend off the violent attacks of the devil! This is the reason for the twelve, the divine government of God!
Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. I Peter 2:4,5

JEZEBEL, QUEEN OF THE DAMNED
And it came to pass after these things that Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard which was in Jezreel, next to the palace of Ahab king of Samaria. So Ahab spoke to Naboth, saying, “Give me your vineyard, that I may have it for a vegetable garden, because it is near, next to my house; and for it I will give you a vineyard better than it. Or, if it seems good to you, I will give you its worth in money.” I Kings 21:1,2
Please pay close attention to this message of how a principality can take over an entire nation! It is happening before our very eyes, America the great, land of the free and home of the brave! It has taken decades of complacency and demonic indoctrination but it has now come to fruition!
The liberal left, over the past fifty years or so, possessed with a spirit of Ahab, has managed to slowly invade the land with doctrines of demons! First the preachers were silenced by a subtle message of prosperity that could no longer tolerate speaking of repentance from sin, the blood of Jesus and the deeds of the flesh, instead watering down the gospel and focusing on filling sanctuaries! Then women's lib was born with their message of "You've come a long way baby!"
This was the door that was opened that allowed Jezebel to come in. Abortion was legalized, women were now being elevated above the man and the devil was dancing in the streets! This is God's divine order for the family: the head, Jesus, then the man, the woman and then the children. Remember who Satan spoke to in the garden, he bypassed the man and spoke directly to Eve while Adam just stood there allowing his wife to be seduced!
But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. I Corinthians 11:3
GOD'S DIVINE AUTHORITY
For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. I Corinthians 11:10
Why the angels? The angels protect us when we observe God's line of divine authority! When we ignore His authority the angels back off and we are out from under God's divine protection! Wide open to the attacks of the enemy!
Regarding the vineyard of Naboth, liken it to America and Ahab to a spoiled, weak and complacent people who let their guard down and allowed a principality to dominate their land and steal their country! Men possessed with a spirit of Ahab are usually soft hearted and easily deceived and seduced by women who applaud them and build up their self esteem by exalting them. Ahab whined to Jezebel about the vineyard and she devised a plan to kill Naboth and steal his land and so it came to pass, Naboth was killed and Ahab possessed his vineyard!
So it is with America, the recent Presidential election was stolen and an Ahab seated in the highest office in the land with Jezebel behind in the shadows for now, manipulating and scheming to destroy the greatest country in the world and one of the last strongholds for the preaching of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ!
Then Jezebel his wife said to him, “You now exercise authority over Israel! Arise, eat food, and let your heart be cheerful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.” I Kings 21:7
JEZEBEL'S PROPHETIC VOICE
Now therefore, send and gather all Israel to me on Mount Carmel, the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal, and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel's table." I Kings 18:19
Jezebel's own media outlet, her own lame stream news media, 850 false prophets spewing out whatever lies she wanted the nation of Israel to believe! So it is with American journalism, it has been overtaken by lying deceiving demons!
Our modern day news media refuses to cover any truth for the conservative proving this by their lack of acknowledgement of fraudulent voting practices in the recent election allowing it to be stolen right before our very eyes! This is Satan's modus operandi, to lie, deceive and seduce the unsuspecting! False prophecy is not limited to scriptural subjects, but is directed to deceive people in order to promote their devilish agendas!
America's news media is poisoned by liberal doctrines of demons and years of compromise, injected mainly by women's movements: pro-choice, gay marriage, gender equality, racism and now BLM, a Marxist organization hell bent on destroying the land! A spirit of Ahab has invaded their hearts allowing the principality of Jezebel to reign supreme in the land! As Elijah destroyed the prophets of Baal so we as the body of Christ have to tear down this demonic stronghold of lies and deception by prayer and fasting and by refusing to fund their news channels by boycotting their advertisers! May God have mercy!
You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel. “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean. “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness. “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build tombs for the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous. And you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ So you testify against yourselves that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets. Go ahead, then, and complete what your ancestors started! “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? Matthew 23:24-33 NIV

JEZEBEL, QUEEN OF THE DAMNED
Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come near to me.” So all the people came near to him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down. And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord had come, saying, “Israel shall be your name.” I Kings 18:30,31
The main reason this spirit is so prevalent in the church today as well as multitudes of other demons wreaking havoc in people's lives is the fact that most churches, especially in America are built wrong! Jesus is our example and in order to defeat our enemies we must follow His lead!
In Part I we see that Elijah who was a type of Jesus yet to come in the future and in the aforementioned scripture He is building an altar, another type and shadow of His church yet to come and He is using twelve stones that represent twelve apostles. This is where the church has failed, apostles are the architects of the church and they have the blueprint, not the pastor who has been placed in the wrong gifting!
The number twelve represents the government of God and just as Satan has been able to assault the God ordained family because the woman was elevated above the man, so because of the faulty structure of the body of Christ he has been able to invade the church! Remember the New Testament churches were founded by apostles!
And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. I Corinthians 12:28
THE POWER OF THE APOSTLE
And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:11,12
The Jezebel spirit is the only angelic entity portrayed as a female with such great power and influence this side of Satan! The historical facts concerning this principalities' domain is the total domination of a king and the country of Israel!
Many have taken people, myself included through deliverance who have the Jezebel spirit or have been assaulted by it, but I believe now after all these years that we have missed the entire reason this spirit is so prevalent and also known throughout the world, because it is a major power sent to destroy governments and churches.
The apostles of the world must unite and tear down this principality and its strongholds on the church of Jesus Christ! They must have oversight of their individual fellowships and know their people in order to detect the presence of Jezebel when she enters a person to eventually destroy the entire congregation!
Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that You are the LORD God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again.” I Kings 18:37
CALLING DOWN THE FIRE OF GOD
Then the fire of the LORD fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench. I Kings 18:38
When the church is built according to the Divine design, the fire of Holy Spirit power is poured out upon it! Elijah defeated the prophets of Satan and Jezebel's stronghold on Israel and God's people turned back to Him in repentance!
In the future God's church is also empowered by the Holy Spirit led by twelve apostles and standing in the unity of the Spirit. In order to see this powerful expression of the true church of Jesus Christ, we as His people must receive the Holy Spirit gifting's of the five-fold ministry equippers to properly train and equip God's church for service.
The principality of Jezebel is alive today and actively destroying lives, leadership and churches with little or no push back from God's people, most of whom are blind to its attack on the church of Jesus Christ. America is under attack right now by the hostile takeover of this principality and unless we as the body of Christ rise up and pull down this demonic stronghold this country is doomed!
And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ. Ephesians 4:11-15

JEZEBEL, QUEEN OF THE DAMNED
Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. Revelation 2:20
The woman mentioned in Revelation was most likely not actually named Jezebel, but the name was applied to her because of characteristics that she shared with Jezebel, the wife of Ahab, king of Israel, as related in various passages from 1 Kings 16 through 2 Kings 9 in the Old Testament. (There has apparently been no further specific historical identification of the actual name of the woman in the church at Thyatira.)
Thursday, May 21 2020
Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began. II Timothy 1:6-9
We are an apostolic company of called out warriors for Christ, anointed with His Spirit and sent to spread the good news of His saving grace! It is our divine destiny as believers to share that which we have received by faith in order for the lost to find their entrance into the kingdom of God.
Jesus saved us and called us as His apostolic army of blood bought saints to reap a harvest of lost souls from the danger of falling into the bowels of eternal damnation! We are living in the last of the last days upon this earth with an eternal duty as believers to share His gospel and make disciples of all nations. People are wandering to and fro without a clue in most cases about the condition of their souls and the consequences of their sins!
The apostle Paul warned us that perilous times are coming and we are now experiencing them in the earth today where men are lovers of themselves, greedy and lustful haters of God and all that is good. Darkness is covering the earth where even mothers are murdering their own unborn children for the sake of convenience! Murder, rape and robbery abound as well as drug addiction and marijuana is being legalized around the US that will render the outcome of a nation stoned out of their minds!
Hold fast the pattern (model) of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us. II Timothy 1:13,14
SOLDIERS OF CHRIST
You therefore must endure (share) hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please Him who enlisted him as a soldier. II Timothy 2:3,4
We are in the midst of a spiritual battle being waged against all that is good and pure! This battle must be fought in the Spirit and not in the flesh by those who have laid down their lives for the cause of Christ!
It is no longer, business as usual where believers trudge off to a dead ritual on Sundays while they serve themselves the other six days. The trumpets are blowing in a time of war but no one is showing up for the fight! When I joined the Marine Corps, in six short months I was trained, equipped and ready for war! Today however people sit and listen to a talking head for thirty years, never trained in ministry and never get out of the pew to serve the Lord in any capacity whatsoever!
Satan is the most underestimated adversary the world has ever seen, or should I say, has never seen! He is a hidden force to be reckoned with: robbing, killing and stealing precious lives, wrecking families and marriages, seducing the saints and attacking, murdering and dismembering the innocent unborn! The church of Jesus Christ is at the crossroads of either total annihilation, or at the very door of victory over their enemies!
For though we walk in the flesh we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. II Corinthians 10:3,4
A TIME FOR WAR!
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:10-12
The powers of darkness have been loosed upon the earth like no other time in the history of the world. Lawlessness abounds throughout the planet because that which has restrained them, the preaching of the true gospel has ceased and has been replaced with an ear tickling, smooth false message of mush!
It is time for the true body of the living Lord Jesus to rise up and trample those snakes and scorpions the Lord Jesus gave us authority over! We can't blame anyone for the Hell that is going on because we have been given all power to defeat the devil and his angels! 65 million of God's precious unborn innocent babies have been slaughtered on our watch and their little organs harvested for sale! An abomination and atrocity like no other in history!
Homosexuality, perversion of all types and pedophilia have been normalized and accepted in our culture. Drag Queens are teaching children in elementary school and in libraries and gay marriage is legal, not to mention drug addiction and murder, rape and robbery that plagues our nation and the world. This reminds me of a church on a curve in Germany during WWII where the trains carrying Jews to the death camps would pass and when the pastor would hear the whistle and the train coming closer he would tell the congregation to sing louder to drown out the cries of the condemned! May God have mercy!
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. II Thessalonians 2:9-12

I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with long-suffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:1-3
When the prophet Samuel was dedicated to the Lord and given to Eli the priest to disciple, God called Him into the ministry. Throughout scripture men and women were called of God to their life's work and ministry. As the people of God, the assembly of the Lord Jesus Christ, we are to fulfill our divine destiny and calling!
The apostle Paul exhorted us to keep the unity of the Spirit, that which the one hundred twenty experienced at Pentecost. Peace, harmony and in one accord, they worshiped God and were all filled with Holy Spirit power. Unity brings about corporate anointing which in turn brings about power. Today, however the devil has divided the body of Christ into denominations, sects and even cults, through tradition and the doctrines of demons.
Because we are not united as one body, our supernatural power and authority has diminished, leaving us in a dangerous position to engage our enemies. In order to have victory over the powers of darkness we must protect the unity of our faith with others in the body! Our spiritual destiny depends on our love for one another and our ability to overcome division!
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil (symbol of the Holy Spirit) upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron. (a type of the Royal Priesthood) Psalm 133:1,2
WE ARE ONE BODY
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling: one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6
As the old saying states, "United we stand, divided we fall!" That is an understatement considering the hundreds of divisions in today's church, most of which is divided over the Word! Contrary to popular belief the Bible does not contradict itself and there is no private interpretation!
When Jesus began His ministry, He was baptized by John, baptized in the Holy Spirit and went on a 40 day fast in the wilderness. When the devil approached Him to tempt Him, He used the sword of the Spirit against him, the word of the living God, but the devil, also knowing the word tried to use it against Him at the end of His temptation!
Satan told Jesus to throw Himself off the pinnacle of the temple and said to Him, "If you are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here. "For it is written: "He shall give His angels charge over You, to keep You and in their hands they shall bear You up." Its a shame that the devil knows the Word better than most believers and it is not beneath him to use it against us to defeat and deceive us! Beware of his schemes!
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. II Peter 1:20,21
A PERFECT MAN
And He gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints (us) for the work of ministry for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, (complete in Christ) to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-13
The goal of the five-fold ministry team is to equip believers to become a unified spiritual Man, a representation of the supernatural existence of the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth! We are His body, filled with His Spirit and left in the earth to be His ambassadors to reconcile the lost back to their Father in whom they have defected!
We have been so deceived by the devil to believe that church is a building we attend once a week to hear a message and then expect our pastor to do all the spiritual work we pay him to do. This is straight out of Hell! If you are born again, you are a blood washed, spirit-filled saint of the Most High, expected to GO and do the greater works that Jesus promised we would do in the earth today!
Satan has dragged up a corpse out of the bowels of antiquity, the old priesthood with all the dead religious rituals of yesteryear and has tried to make us follow something that Jesus destroyed and nailed to the cross! Don't be deceived by his schemes and ploys to get you to sit and be quiet in a dry and dusty mausoleum of dead works! You are the called of Christ, unified and chosen as His disciples to conquer the powers of darkness and reap a harvest of souls for the kingdom of God!

Therefore holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus. Hebrews 3:1
The Greek word for apostle is "Apostolos" which means, an envoy, ambassador, a messenger commissioned to carry out the instructions of the commissioning agent, in our case, the Lord Jesus Christ!
An apostle is one gifted as a master builder, a planter and one who waters what has been sown. Not everyone is an apostle, but everyone can have an apostolic vision. An apostolic vision is a view of God's eternal plan for man to be saved and set free from sins by the supernatural transformation, brought about by faith, repentance and the washing of the blood of Christ.
The very first messenger was an unlikely choice, but nonetheless Jesus chose to use Mary Magdalene whom He had cast out seven demons. Mary, a brave follower who went to the tomb when the rest of the disciples were in hiding in fear for their lives was a faithful servant of the Lord. Jesus told her to go and announce to His brethren that He had risen!
"Go to My brethren and say to them, 'I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.' " John 20:17
Christ, a Son over His house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end. Hebrews 3:6
We as believers are the temple of God, Jesus is the High Priest and we are His chosen priesthood, called to do the greater works that He promised us. Neither cheerleaders, nor spectators, we are the replica and model of the Lord Jesus Christ!
As Jesus is the image of God in the flesh, so we are the image of Him in the earth, new creations called to conquer and to bring about the transformation of mankind on earth as it is willed from Heaven! One with God the Father, God the Son and Holy Spirit, we hold all the power and benefits of the heavenly kingdom.
Everyone is a minister and priest over his house, trained, equipped and sent to carry the message of LIFE to a lost and dying world. Empowered to preach, heal and deliver those who would come to the light of the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Jesus, who being the brightness of God's glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged (cleansed) our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. Hebrews 1:3,4
THE ROYAL PRIESTHOOD OF JESUS CHRIST
Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. I Peter 2:4,5
We are a living, breathing supernatural temple of the Holy Spirit, comprised of born again, Spirit-filled new creations in Christ. Jesus Christ, the Chief Cornerstone and High Priest of our faith, seated at the right hand of the Most High!
As a holy priesthood we are to offer up spiritual sacrifices to God, such as our life, possessions, family, ministry and prayer. Our ministry to Him is an intimate fellowship, communing with the Father in the Spirit, receiving His divine revelation and communication directly from the throne of His power.
Renewed in body and mind we have received a divine inheritance being in a "Blood Covenant" with the King of all kings and Lord of all! No longer a place to go, we are a Person to be, the exact replica and expression of Jesus Christ in the earth!
You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but now are the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. I Peter 2:9,10
