Introduction

Earth was intended to follow the blueprint of Heaven.

John 14:12-14
New International Version (NIV)

12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it`

Following the publishing of the book Warriors of Love in June 2012, the Lord started to nudge me on another book. Then two people prophesied over me. They said another book was on the way and I would receive downloads from Him.
It was clear from inception this was going to be all revelatory. There would be some teaching but the bulk would be matters He would be explaining to me for dissemination to the World.
He took me first back to the Lord’s Prayer or better described as the Apostles’ Prayer.
‘On Earth as it is in Heaven….’
He kept on repeating it to me like a mantra so I would ingest and digest it.
This is Father’s Kingdom as the prayer is addressed to God the Father. Kingdom means King’s Domain (a territory, state, people or community ruled or reigned over by a king or queen; the eternal Sovereignty of God).

“and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” – Matt 3v2

If our task is to bring His Kingdom to Earth that is fine. What He was reminding me is that everything originated in Heaven. If we are thought of before time began by the Uncreated One, nothing on Earth as it stands is original. It all started in Heaven. By looking at things from a Heavenly perspective we can understand more clearly why human thought and processes have developed the way they do. Sometimes it has taken years and years for things to become apparent and the revelation of its simplicity shines through. God makes nothing complicated. Everything He has planned and worked is perfect, efficient and purposeful.

“He is the Author and Finisher” – Hebrews 12v2.
We are part of the assembly line on earth, chapter two, paragraph three, for example.

He has taught me this revelation about signs, and wonders, healings, and miracles. I do not need to know His plans. He just unfolds to me what I need to know, when I need to know it and through obedience and intimacy, I do what I am told.

“His timing is perfect.” – Eccl 3v11
Mine is faulty. He may bring healing to someone at a far slower speed than I would wish. He may delay a miracle. He works outside time with His angels.

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of HIS might.” – Ephesians 6v10

One of Man’s challenges and errors is that as he has progressively detached himself from the Godhead. He is striving, examining and learning in his own strength, not God’s. This has been a major mistake.

Isaiah 55:8-9
New International Version (NIV)
8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, 
neither are your ways my ways,” 
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

I believe He is bringing in a new breed of men and women who listen to Him closely and learn Heavenly things that have never been revealed before. These people have attained the spirit of Sonship and spend much time with Papa God, Jesus (J) and the Holy Spirit (JIM Jesus in me). They have an intimacy and friendship unattainable on earth. They hunger for Him and lean on Him for advice and revelation. These people are in all spheres of the world and scattered around the Seven Mountains of influence.
Government
Education
Law
Church
Media
Justice
Family

Because they are trusted and obedient, they become open to revelations and mystical experiences, which allow them to see how Heaven is run and how the Godhead works. Love pervades all in Heaven, as it should do on earth. The latter starts to fade even with a flicker of a match.
Those of you who have tasted Heaven will know what I mean. It is indescribable, all embracing and one never wants to return to Earth. No epithet, aphorism, or adjective can describe God’s unconditional love for us.

“Since He loved us first, we learn to love Him.” -1 John 4v19

It would be impossible otherwise. When we start to love Him then we learn to release His love through us to others.
It does not stop here. He wants to instruct us and educate us in His ways.

This book is about that type of instruction. How we can receive instructions and use them for His Purpose.

I think we are entering a new phase in end times where the full force and authority of the King of Kings is unleashed against the satanic remnant on earth and in the heavenlies. He is beginning to use humans in a way far beyond their ken to take down the principalities and controls of satan over the seven mountains of influence, countries, cities, and towns.
He is starting to reveal the truths of His Kingdom that all emanated from Heaven in the first place.

Warriors of Love is a type of Primer similar to school primers on Latin and Greek. It is a foundational tool for people to understand the import of God’s end time army and why we need to join it. The structure I now realise that he gave me, models our earthly armies. ‘As it is in Heaven.’ What a surprise! The revelation of the sequel to Warriors is just becoming apparent now to me in this new book. I was already acknowledging unbeknownst to myself that everything did originate in Heaven.

For some time now He has given me the gift of seeing angels but particularly worship angels. Why I wondered? My task was to introduce them to their earthy mortals who were musicians and worship leaders. This I have done obediently and with much hilarity and success. I will recount two cases later. The message He was giving me was that all inspiration and music that glorifies Him came from Heaven in the first place.

“For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth,” – Col 1v16 NIV

I am sure you can begin to see this. Where there is Heaven impacting earth, satan has always tried to counterfeit and change this. Offshoots appear that are not Godly. All sounds and words come from Heaven. Worship angels guide and download to musicians and songwriters inspired music and libretti for glorification of their Maker. How amazing is that?

As The Lord started to unpack the need for another book, He kept on giving me the words ‘a Quiver of Arrows.’ I realised as a warrior it was one of my weapons of arsenal. I have been given many prophetics long before I wrote Warriors, that I was a warrior and that I was an archer in the spirit.
What was so special about this particular weapon instead of a sword or dagger or spear?
Then it came out.
‘I am the Quiver, you are the arrows!’
This completely ‘blitzed’ me for a few days as I talked it through with my prayer partner and brother Brian Trueman.
Well, a quiver is a vessel and yes, we use it to put arrows in. When He left earth to rejoin His Father, Jesus left the other part of the Godhead to remain to guide counsel and protect us on earth: the Holy Spirit.
Quiver also means as a verb: To shake with a slight, rapid, tremulous movement; to vibrate, and often with emotion. Does this begin to sound like the Holy Spirit? Yes.
If Jesus is the Quiver via the Holy Spirit and we are His arrows, suddenly our purpose becomes clear. He fires us out into the world. We are safe inside the quiver protected and ready for action.
But then He said. ‘My warriors carry the Quiver (Me) and fire out my arrows at people! So not only are we His arrows but we are obviously sending something out on the arrows that is not of us but of Him. This makes sense.

The lot is cast into the lap, but the decision is wholly of the Lord [even the events that seem accidental are really ordered by Him]. – Proverbs 16v33 Amplified Bible

I want to relate a story of a picture given to a beloved sister of mine, which came to her one day. She had no knowledge of the book or of the title or the revelation I had received on arrows.
‘While we were soaking at Prayer School today I had a picture of the Lord with a quiver and He was somehow carrying lots of different substances around him.
Then He took arrows one by one from His quiver and dipped each one in a particular substance, then fired it at each one of us, so that we each received from him whatever we needed today. That was my impression of what he was doing. There was an impression of thoughtful purpose, but He was half smiling too!’
Well that was a good confirmation for me.
Then came the blockbuster. He is the God of ambushes. That’s why I adore Him.
I was ‘Googling’ a ‘quiver full of arrows’ and kept on alighting on Mr. J Archer’s book. No enlightenment.
Then, tucked below I saw the verse Psalm 127 v4 and 5 listed briefly.
Now while I was absorbing these passages, my iPhone is playing music in my left ear.
Out of one hundred and twenty one songs of soaking music and numerous stanzas, guess what was being sung? You guessed it: verse 4 and 5 by Sons of Korah psalm 127!

I opened up my bible and read it. (NASB)

4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
so are the children of one’s youth.
5 How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;
They will not be ashamed
When they speak with their enemies in the gate.

I just burst into paroxysms of laughter and giggling. I reckon they were chuckling in Heaven too.

Coincidence the cynic would say? No, God Incidence. There is no such thing as coincidence.
I was pretty convinced I was on the right track but the Lord gave me a final confirmation at a weeks teaching event a few days later, run by Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB). One of their last speakers Jenetzen Franklin spoke on gatekeepers and archers and then launched into Psalm 127 verses 4 and 5 and even took out a toy bow to demonstrate the purpose.

Having received the revelation and the extraordinary confirmations I started to proceed to writing.
The next revelation to arrive before I was even given a break, was that the fact that the book was the quiver and the chapters were the arrows! This seemed pretty logical if the arrows were the revelations He wanted to share. As He was firing arrows at us in the Prayer School, revelations hit us all individually specifically targeted for each of us.
So what was He dipping the arrowheads into and what was the relevance in Psalm 127 to the simile of children?
Franklin said the children were our arrows we fired into the future bridging the generations. I think he was ‘spot on.’
We as advanced believers need to guide and encourage ‘children’ in the faith, to be nurtured properly so they like us become ‘arrows’ being fired. We’re firing Heavenly arrows that represent the true blueprint from Heaven, and not the false one. This may cover values and behaviours, dealing in the truth, and how to interact with people. Similarly in the ‘five-fold ministries’ which we are supposed to carry, all the correct values of behaviours should manifest in each gift we are using. This is “on Earth as it is in Heaven” – a consistent approach that can be measured in the whole of our lifestyle, that demonstrates grace, holiness, humility, love, and compassion.

“However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual.” – 1 Cor 15v46

In God’s world, things can take on multiple facets and applications.
In Warriors, I refer to the revelation of what sunflowers mean to Him. What ‘surfing the spirit’ means.
It was quickly becoming apparent he had a torrent of comparisons to give me that showed how everything started in Heaven and how we could relate back earthly things to Heaven and gain wisdom and understanding from the conclusions.For a few months the Lord has been taking me back to re-read the Final Quest by Rick Joyner, a revelatory first book of the trilogy published first in 1992. It is as relevant to day as it was then in terms of prophetic visions.
As the warrior archers for the Lord climbed the mountain to avoid the hordes of demonised people, they fired arrows with purpose from various heights. Some hit their mark and sometimes they had no effect on wounding or terminating the enemy. Some were directed at satan’s own people and many at the captive Christians who had demons on them. Clearly the choice of arrows was very relevant and at some heights and trajectories, the contents on the end of the arrow tip had greater impact. Why? Each arrow had a different impact and success. The wrong choice produced the wrong impact.
