Saviors From Mt. Zion
are the saviors from Mt. Zion to bring God's kingdom to earth.
Obad 21 And saviors shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the Lord's.
The New Jerusalem is already being established on the earth, but it is in the spirit. Jesus said "The kingdom is already within you". Revelation 21:1-2 21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2 And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
The new heaven and earth coming down represents the spiritual dimension. The Holy City is the Body of Christ who has been renewed in the spirit of their minds and is beginning to reign from the heavens instead of the earth. We are no longer earth bound by the carnal religious mind. We are shaking ourselves from the dust of the earth and beginning to shine with the glory of the Lord. I know there will come a day when these truths will fully be manifested, and we'll walk in the light and the full glory of the New Jerusalem. However now is the day to begin to walk in it because the light and the glory of the New Jerusalem is already locked up on the inside of God's people and needs to be released. That's why we have to have the breaking of the outer man. When Christ begins to rise in us we then effortlessly put aside selfish ambitions and selfish motives and begin to serve and love on another. We must not look down on those who do not yet understand what we see. We must be the ones who minister to those who don't understand. We must always bear the burdens of the weak.
There is a divine flow today from the throne. When we open to that flow within us it is a continual flow of divine life. It is only by the divine life flowing out of us that will build the church and bring forth the New Jerusalem into manifestation. This flow coming from the throne can be received moment by moment, and this flow of life then begins to transform us and produce the fruit of the Spirit.
There is very little known today in most places of worship about the transformation of the inner man. Most just teach moral behavior. They try and teach you how to be a Christian by being good. Good human works and behavior cannot build the church. Only those who have the character of Christ in them can edify and build the church. May we all seek the source of all life to increase the flow of divine life in us that we may be more effective in our life and ministry as a priest of the most high.
Some of you will remember the song we used to sing.
I’ve got a
river of life flowing out of me
Makes the lame to walk and the blind to see
Opens prison doors and sets the captives free
I’ve got a river of life flowing out of me.
I sang that song many years ago and at that time I remember thinking “Where is it?” It was a beautiful song and I loved singing it, but for me it was just wishful thinking. We sang many songs that were true but I never experienced any of them except maybe for fleeting moments. That is because at that time the Lord had not revealed to me my true Identity. I still thought I was a sinner and I was trying the best I could to do better not realizing I was living from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Today the Body of Christ is beginning to experience these wonderful truths. We do have a river of life in us and it is causing the lame to walk and the blind to see. For years I was blind to the real truth of the gospel and I was lame and could not walk in the reality of the kingdom.
Several years ago as a young Christian I was no good to anyone. It was all I could do to get up and go to work because I was so depressed over my inability to be what I thought a good Christian should be. I would go to church and hear about how sinful the world was and come away condemned over my condition. Then one day like the Apostle Paul the Lord began to reveal the truth of Christ in me as a reality, and my life began to change. It took a few years to have revealed to me what I understand now. I was so steeped in religion. After years of struggle and all the time learning the power of forgiveness and the magnitude of Calvary’s victory I woke on July 11, 1982 and was a new person in Christ. Many habits and things just disappeared from my life and I never since then have had to struggle and strive to be a Christian. It has been a continual transformation since, and each year I experience more of the reality of Christ in me. Don't misunderstand me; I still have a long way to go. :)
Once we as individuals begin to experience the flow of life from our inner being when we come together, there will be a river of life flowing from each, and the Church meeting turns from a religious meeting to a glorious, magnificent, expression of the life of God. No more do we need a senior pastor who does all the preaching and teaching. Each member of the Body flows together as Kings and Priests of God. When I was a pastor in 1986 I taught these things to our church and after about 2 years we had a glorious functioning body of believers. I could go in the meeting and sit in the back row and never say a word and the body would function and the meeting would be glorious. The Lord gave us a foretaste of what the Church as a whole would become. Today there are small groups all over who are functioning as the Body of Christ. Hallelujah!!!
When the Lord begins to flow out of us individually when we come together, the church is not a regulated service, but it is a flowing out of the divine life of God. We need no programs, no committees, no fundraisers, no offerings, and all the other religious trappings we have come to believe we need to keep the church functioning. Each member is a living, vibrating, pulsating, magnificent expression of Christ.
One of the biggest obstacles in the Christian system is Offerings and the passing of the plates and the appeals for money to keep the ministry going. We have been in ministry many years and have shipped multiple thousands of books tapes and Cd’s to over 70 countries of the world and have never asked for an offering of any kind. I heard in the spirit many years ago that the Babylonian system of religion was buying and selling and the kingdom was giving and receiving. I know ministries who support their ministry by selling their material and I do not judge them for that. Their hearts are good and they are only doing what they know to do.
It is only by bearing the image and living in the divine flow that we will be a joyful people. We turn our thoughts of lack, sickness or any negativity to knowing we have the divine source of all that is within us and if we let it flow and turn our thoughts to Love Light and Life we will begin to experience the abundant life that Jesus talked about. If we are in ministry and we center our thoughts on the lack of finances or on how to raise finances, we are in a state of unbelief not knowing that the source flows from within our divine consciousness. Praying for finances is really a lack of faith in believing that God supplies your need. I know this is hard for some to accept but if you try it you will like it. Instead of focusing on our need let us focus on the source of life that is within us. When we center our thoughts on lack or our need we actually stop the divine flow of life.
This is why Jesus said resist not evil. What
you resist persists because what you resist you give power to. He also said
Matt 6:25 “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye
shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.
Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?”
By what Jesus said you can see that praying for food and thinking about lack is really unbelief. Let us meditate on these things until our eyes be opened to the truth and reality of our true being. There is a great change taking place in 2012 and the Body of Christ all over the world is beginning to wake up to the reality of what they have believed but never experienced. This is a year of change and release. Let us be glad and rejoice for our deliverance has come.
