The Inauguration of the King over the Holy Nation
To Him who sits on the Throne & unto the Lamb
Prophetic unveiling of the King of Kings
The Body of Christ is moving in the grace of the season and forging ahead with the unfolding revelation of the House of God, a spiritual family in the earth which will become the Holy Nation. Even as this revelation gains momentum in the earth it will begin to do so with great swiftness in 2013. We will begin to see an untangling of the institutional structure of the Church even in the New Testament Church models. Those that have been summoned to this season in God will start to reorder what they have into organic Households of Faith. 2012 will mark the end of the “Saul Dynasty” in the Spirit, which was defined by an external organisation of Ministry chosen by the people to compete and match Babylon. 1 Chronicles 10:12-13, All the valiant men arose and took away the body of Saul and the bodies of his sons and brought them to Jabesh ( is the primitive root word “yabes”, which means to be ashamed, confused or disappointed, also to dry up and wither away) and buried their bones…So Saul died for all his trespasses which he committed against the Lord, because of the word of the Lord, which he did not keep and also because he asked counsel of a medium, making an inquiry of it and did not inquire of the Lord. Therefore He killed him and turned the kingdom over to David the son of Jesse. Saul was buried with his sons and there was no more mention of the name of King Saul among them because his sons died with him, totally removing his posterity from the face of the earth. We should never confess through a lack of understanding that God never wanted a King over His people. He always intended to place His Son King over the rule of this Holy Nation, to say that would not align to the master plan of a Royal Priesthood and a Holy Nation. By this prophetic decree, the Family of God will never have to be concerned about anything that Organised Christian Institutional Religion will do that will get worldwide press coverage as part of Gods agenda, it is just smoke and mirrors, an illusion in their own eyes and those that are under its sway. A last ditch attempt by Satan to deceive the Nations of the world.
One of the up and coming critical spiritual watermarks in this season that we should anticipate is what I like to call the Inauguration of the King over this Holy Nation. I gather my scriptural pattern from the Book of 1 Chronicles 11 & 12. Here the scripture records the events around David being made King over all of the Israel at Hebron. Prior to that actual event there are several more vital stages that also took place. We see in 1 Chronicles 9 & 10 a record of the genealogy from King Saul. I particularly must emphasis 1 Chronicles 9:9 & 34, 9 …all these were heads of fathers households, according to their fathers house… 34…These were heads of their fathers households of the Levites according to their generations, chief men who lived in Jerusalem. I am deliberately stressing this point only because it in this arrangement of the Kingdom that King David is made King over Israel in Hebron. Now we all know that Hebron is a place of covenantal joining of families in relationship of fathers and sons. Here we are witnessing the various Tribes under Patriarchal Fathers coming together as an Assembly of Families to anoint King David as King over Israel. 1 Chronicles 13:1 Then David consulted with the captains of the thousands and the hundreds, even with every leader. David said to all the assembly of Israel …” The word for “assembly” is an Aramaic word, Qahal and in this context it is this word that is used to denote “a gathering to judge and execute judgement”. Other times it is used to signify all the people of Israel. It is also in Genesis 28:3 And God Almighty blessed thee and makes thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou may be a multitude (Qahal) of people.
Now it should come has no surprise to you that Jesus Christ did not speak Greek but Aramaic. Some of the Synoptic Gospels have been translated from Hebrew / Aramaic and Syriac into Greek. Now Aramaic was a dialect of the Hebrew or what we have come to understand as “kitchen language”. For a detailed understanding of this go the Wikipedia. What is very interesting in particular is that the Book of Matthew has been the only confirmed book that is translated from Aramaic. Matthew 16:13 -20 is the account of the confession of Peter of the Christ being the Son of God, in particular verses 18 which reads, “and I say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build (banah) My church (Qahal) and the gates of hell shall not over power it”. This verse has become the foundation upon which the Church is built. Jesus did not use the word “Ecclesia” which is the translated Greek word which renders “The Called Out” which is an accurate translation but actually used the word “Qahal” which is the Aramaic equivalent. However this word conveys the very essence of His intentions which is an Assembling constituted by the verb “to build” which is the Hebrew /Aramaic word, “Banah”, to build, construct, establish, fashion, fortify. Metaphorically speaking the word, “Banah” is used for “buildings ones house”. Now we know that a house is not the physical structure but is contextually meant to mean a Family and in this particular text the word “Oikodemeo” is used. It’s used as a noun in the derivative root to mean “son” or “ben”. There is no shadow of doubt in my mind that what Jesus Christ was saying was that he was going to, “Son his Family” or “”build His Assembly into a Nation”, a Holy Nation.
Scripturally the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit intends to “ben” His “Qahal” into an Holy Nation for there is no other way build a Nation but under that arrangement of the Old Testament model of Fathers and sons, that forms spiritual families, that assimilate into Clans, that gather under Tribes, that assemble into a Nation. This is evident from the pages of genealogical records found in scripture. The scripture confirms this intent in Psalms 127, Unless, the Lord builds (bens/sons) the House (oikos/family), they labours in vain who build it. Unless the Lord guards (shamar) the City, the watchman (shamar) keeps awake in vain. The Hebrew word “shamar” is used for both words guards and watchman, which means, to hedge around something, to keep, to guard a flock, a house. What is being communicated here is that, if it is not being built by the Father then it will not be protected by the Father. This is how the Father intends to fortify what he has been building over the years; it is the place of strengthening of the walls and the boarders of the Holy City Jerusalem. The Holy National Family in the City of this Kingdom is fortified and impenetrable and stands on top of Mt. Zion, the Covenant of Sonship. Psalms 46: 4-7, There is a river whose streams make glad the City of God. The Holy place where the Most High dwells, God is in the midst of her she will not be moved. God will help her when morning dawns. The nations are in uproar and the kingdoms tottered. He raised His voice, the earth melted. The Lord of Hosts is with us. The God of Jacob is our stronghold.
We find in 1Chronicles 12 & 13 the coming togther of the Tribes of Israel to David at Ziklag and many of them joining to David at Hebron the place of Covenant. It is at this place that all the Tribe pledge allegiance to David by saying," we are yours, O David, and with you O son of Jesse. Peace, peace to you and peace to him who helps you, indeed your God helps you". Chapter 12 Vs 38 says, All these being men of war who could draw up in battle formation came to Hebron with a perfect heart, to make David King over all of Israel and all the rest also of Israel were of one mind to make David King. Here we see the Fathers of the Tribes coming together in one accord in the arrangement of Families in unity. They gather as the Qahal of God and inaugurate David as King.
So how will this “Inauguration of the King over the Holy Nation” begin to take shape here on the earth in time? These eternal truths have already made their way into the minds of the Heads of Households, spiritual fathers. I believe there is coming a time and now is that, Patriarchal Fathers of Spiritual Families, Clans & Tribes will start to begin to hear the sound of heaven for the kairos of this spiritual event that may manifest as a Conference or a Holy Convocation. I would venture on to say that it may be a Global Declaration that will use the internet, mediums like Face book and Twitter, because of the sheer magnitude of such an event. When you hear of these things do not be alarmed, know that you are sons of the light not sons of the darkness that these events should overtake you with surprise. Rejoice for your redemption draws nigh.
Most would disagree with this by saying that Jesus Christ is already the King over all the Nations of the earth. Why are you making this to be something that has not happened? Has this event not already happened? Psalm 2 & Revelation 4 & 5 records this clearly. This is inaccurate, this is wrong theology. Is this a contradiction of the scripture?
No! It is not a contradiction of the scripture. You are right is your understanding that Jesus Christ is King over all the Nations of the world this is true in the Spirit and the natural. What we know to be true is that there has never been an expression in the earth that truly unites us, the Body of Christ as a Holy Nation or what we have come to understand the unity of the faith. Remember the scripture Ephesians 4:13 “…until we all come to the unity of the faith and knowledge of the son of God, to mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ”. Jesus Christ prayed, “Father make them one has we are one”. The Spirit and the Bride says come, the Spirit has always been ushering the Kingdom and the Christ into the earth, but now we will see that Bride the Lambs wife arranging and adoring herself for the consummation of the ages, to her Beloved.
Beloved of the Father I can hear in the distance the rumbling of dry bones coming together, the formation of this mighty army as sinews and muscles are being connected and every joint is supplying grace from father to son. I hear the sound of the rushing mighty breath of God breathing life into this company and shuffling of the shoes of peace as they gather into formation of Tribes under Patriachial Fathers in Households of faith. It has begun, do not miss what the Spirit is now doing in the earth, find your spiritual father, that will bring you into this arrangement of the Tribe ultimately. When this completed it will signify the return of the King, Jesus Christ to the earth and eastern sky will split and we will behold Him coming with the Cloud of Wittnesses, and we who are alive will be caught up to meet Him in the air, to accompany Him back to the earth as His Brothers to rule and reign with Him forever.
Grace, Peace, Love and Mercy
