Build My House Now
Construction is Internal
What You Love, You Prioritize
I have been waiting on the Father for a prophetic word for me personally and particularly my Spiritual Household and the Global Family of God, and was directed to the Book of Haggai by the Spirit. This two chapter "minor prophet" book is the most clear directive that I know to be what is on the mind of God the Father for His Family now in 2015. I know that this message must be borne on the shoulders of Governmental graces of the Apostolic, Prophetic and the Melchisedek Priestly order within each son of God. So I write this to my spiritual sons and all those that know that they are the sons of God and are connected to this season through present truth and my grace in all the world as a last trumpet call, the 3:00 pm call to come to work on building and establishing the House of God, our Father, this is what the Father wants me to emphasis in this blog, among other urgent and pressing issues on the mind of the Father, this matter is just one of them. So I am not claiming exclusivity of this message but rather one aspect of the manifold wisdom of Gods agenda for His Family. I have been given the task as an Apostolic Father within the jurisdiction of my grace to highlight this matter of importance. Spiritual maturity is of the highest priority, the primary purpose on the mind of God for His sons in the Kingdom. Everything else is secondary, but not necessarily unimportant.
I am witnessing a trend in the world especially in Hollywood. Production Companies like Marvel and its Producers after having tremendous success with a trilogy movie are now employing another aspect to maintain their following of fans. They are now writing and producing, "Origins". For example, "The Hobbit", is the origins sequence to the trilogy, "The Lord of the Rings" and X-Men Origins. Origins are basically what happened before you saw part one of that trilogy. It allows the viewer to gain a deeper perspective of "Why", things happened has they did. Information reporting follows this trend, WHAT? WHEN? HOW? and WHY? Statistically speaking most people, about 80% are very content with only knowing the, "what", "when" and "how" but its the intelligent thinkers, the other 20% that want to understand the, "why". I am convinced that Heaven is beginning to reveal the wisdom of "why" to the remnant sons of God because it is in that way that we gain the perspective that everything that ever began as a thought in the mind of God the Father for mankind and all of creation, was motivated by an omnipotent, omniscient Spirit Being that LOVES, and that a Spirit Being whose primary motivation and life source is Love, has the unmistakable, unfathomable nature of being GOD. Selah. John 2:13 I write to you Fathers (Paters, matured Huios), because you have known Him, who is from the beginning. You know His origin.
A Brief History:
The exiles returning home in 536 B.C from Babylonian captivity under the rule of King Darius, had returned to rebuild the Temple of the Lord first. They had started of well by building an alter and offering up sacrifices and the following year laid the foundation for the Temple of the Lords House. But the building process had ceased after enemies mocked the building efforts, and for nearly 15 years all work had stopped on the construction site, while the people turned their efforts to building their own Houses, so grand was their efforts on their own Houses that they began paneling the walls of their homes with expensive Cedar wood like in the days of Solomon's Temple. It is against this backdrop that Haggai the Prophet, Zerrubbabel the Governor (Apostolic) and Joshua the son of Jehozadak the High Priest are being commissioned by God to decree a change in the season once again. A time to "Build My House, Your Spirit, the Naos. To what end? So that the House of God can be arranged in the fashion of a Holy Nation
Consider Your Ways: Neglecting Gods House
Nearly 15 years had past and the people had become complacent and self consumed with their own agenda and their personal comforts. I would like to place on record that since a kairos shift from 2000 to 2015 much of the efforts of Church culture has been extremely and revoltingly self indulgent in building their own paneled buildings and programs but not building the people into maturity. This is a serious warning from Heaven to those leaders that say, the time has not come, the time that the Lord's House should be built..." They have neglected to abandon a building process that does not prioritize the Will of God the Father. What you love, you prioritize. The Word of the Lord begins to draw attention to the following; Haggai 1:6
⦁ You have sown much, and bring in little.
⦁ You eat but do not have enough, you drink but are not filled.
⦁ You clothe yourself but no one is warm.
⦁ You earn wages to put into bags with holes.
The above results are the practices of an orphan, that labors and toils out of the sweat of his brow with no lasting fruit of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. Maximum self effort with little or no return in ones life is evidence that God is rocking your world trying to get your attention. You have failed to recognize what is out of your control is in Gods control. You can sow much but He gives the increase. You can eat the choicest of food and drink the finest of wines but He gives you peace and satisfaction. You can cover your body with the finest of fabrics but you are still cold in your heart towards Him and others, you are still naked, living from your fallen identity as a human being. You work to earn wages as a slave but fail to recognize your sonship to live from a never ending supply of your inheritance from your Father. Haggai 1:9-11 You looked for much but indeed it came to little, and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why? Because of my House that is in ruins, while every one of you runs to his own House. Therefore the heavens above you withholds the dew (Grace) and the earth withholds its fruit( Favor). For I called for a drought on the land and the mountains, on the grain (daily bread -proceeding word of God) and the new wine( spiritual revelation of the current word of God) and the oil (Holy Spirit and the Anointing), on whatever the ground brings forth, on men and livestock and on all the labor of your hands. Why? Because of my House that is in ruins, while every one of you runs to his own House.
CHRIST - The Anointed and His Anointing:
The stirring of the CHRIST inside of a son is what is ignited to release an anointing to give exclusive priority to the Will of the Father. The anointing is a temporary and task driven divine empowering of authority, power and grace. Its an enablement of spiritual resource that pushes everything aside that does not align to the divine initiative. It causes you to operate above and beyond your natural capabilities, it makes you supernatural. Haggai 1:14 So the Lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest and the spirit of all the remnant of the people and they came and worked on the House of God. When we agree to this arrangement of building and working then we are given the Grace to function in it until the job is done. Jesus said, "My food is to do the Will of My Father and to finish." We must finish the assignment given to us for this generation in our lifetime and raise sons to build upon what we have finished. As the sons of God we are only supposed to work when we are under the anointing, for its in the anointing that we labor from a place of rest and not from fleshly toil. Jesus said, "I work, the works of my Father". In other words I am participating in what my Heavenly Father is doing in the earth, it is Him that is working not that I am working. My Father goes ahead of me to prepare my way and I am just obedient to walk in it. For I only do what I see my Father doing and I only say what I hear my Father saying. For when you see Me, you have seen the Father, at work. We are required to pursue the work of building the House of God because He says so. If we do this in obedience without question, then there are rewards to our obedience.
The Reward of His Presence: Greater Glory
Haggai 2:6 For thus says the Lord of Hosts. Once more (it is a little while) I will shake Heaven and earth, the sea and dry land, and I will shake all Nations and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations and I will fill this Temple with glory, says the Lord of Hosts. "The silver is mine and gold is mine, says the Lord of Hosts. The glory of this latter Temple, shall be greater than the former says the Lord of Hosts. And this place I will give Peace, says the Lord of Hosts.
The promise of a shaking is inevitable, in context, shaking causes separation and the separation causes blessings. But before the blessing comes, the Prophet begins to highlight the need to separate themselves from unclean relationships. He extrapolates a fundamental principle from the Old Testament Leviticus laws in Haggai 2:10 - 14 which is "Uncleanliness is infectious while holiness is not". Bad company corrupts good character. If you lie with dogs, you will get fleas. If you are not mature enough to not be influenced by people that are worldly, then I would encourage you to stay away from them because the chances are you will become contaminated by their evil worldly philosophy and slip back into your former state of self preservation. The Father will send a mature son into the world that has been separated unto Himself, separated unto holiness. Holiness is not someone who is controlled by religious works, like regular meeting attendance,prolonged abstinence from food that will lead to repetitious vain prayers for your needs but rather one who knows who He is in Christ as a son.
Apostolic Authority and Power
The scripture promises a second shaking in Haggai 2: 20 exclusively to Zerrubabbel The Governor, which we identified as the Apostolic grace in a son. This shaking comes with a deliberate action to overthrow the natural Thrones of the Nations seat of power, which is its Legal System, the strength of the Gentile nations which is its Economic System and the horses, its chariots and its riders which is its Military systems. These systems will serve and bow down to the Kingdom of God and righteous rule that will become the standard of the mature sons in Christ. Personally you will begin to see that your sonship is not in the Law but in Grace, you will rest in the economic provision of your Heavenly Father and you will put trust in the name of the Lord, which is Father, not like some who will trust in horses, some will trust in chariots. Haggai 2: 23 In that Day, says the Lord of Hosts...I will make you like a Signet Ring, for I have chosen you says the Lord of Hosts. The Signet ring was a valuable symbol of power and authority that the Father gives to the son on the day of him coming into maturity. It has equal representational value of the Father himself. This ring was often used as a seal on a letter that was imprinted onto the hot wax. In the New Testament we are promised the Holy Spirit as our seal unto sonship.
Wake Up Call - 2015 To the Sons of the Household of Elijah
It is grave misunderstanding in our theology to think that when we die in an immature state that our soul is automatically transformed into maturity. Here is what happens when you die, your Spirit and your immature soul returns to the Father, your mortal body remains behind to be transformed at the coming of the Lord and join your Spirit and your immature soul. The process of sanctification, which is learning to rule your soul will continue in the Millennium. This is that part of our maturity that is solely our responsibility, its our voluntary contribution to His process of sonship. Jesus learned obedience through the things He suffered. It is however here that God will rule with a rod of iron his Household, which means that He will be inflexible. We will not have any excuses to comply to His direct instruction of righteous order during this time. He will be extremely hard with those sons. There will be no Spiritual Fathers during that time you will be dealing directly with your Heavenly Father. The placing of Spiritual Fathers over you is an act of grace now. I would encourage you to not wait for the Millennium to come to maturity but pursue it now with all your heart now. Selah.
I believe that over the next 5 years those that will heed the sound of this Prophetic word, and give themselves wholeheartedly to building the Spiritual Temple of the Lord by pursuing spiritual maturity and accountability of a Spiritual Father, will begin to have tremendous power and authority in the Kingdom. We will begin to see the demonstration of the Kingdom through signs, wonders and healing. We will also begin to see the transfer of wealth, which is the people that will want to come under Godly Governance and Righteous Order for their lives. We will also have riches. It took the people of Israel five years to complete the building of the Temple. Be aware of the scheme of Satan as he will do everything to derail you from this command to,"Build My House Now."
