Detaching from the Godhead.
This is about an arrow, which can be fired to bring back alignment with the Godhead.
New International Version (NIV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
God had a purpose for creating us For His pleasure because he loved us first. He had only the best purposes and intentions for us.1
We were not intended to have anything other than Heaven on earth. The fall ensured a disparity between Heaven and earth.2 Adam and Eve were given dominion over earth and in their unfallen state – they experienced Heaven.
In their fallen state they handed earth over to someone else.
Let’s just imagine everything came ‘off kiltie’. Pain arrived, toil arrived, emotions other than love arrived. In fact, lack and negativity arrived. We know who from; the fallen Cherub Archangel haylel (lucifer). Pride and vanity and Man’s attempt to out-do God arrived.
Ever since that moment, Man’s control of man took over and arrogance in our ability to do without our Creator, commenced. The history of the chosen race, the Israelites tells a story of disobedience, lack of focus and pride as well as idolatrous behavior. When God moved the sphere out even wider encompassing the strayed progeny of Abraham, the Gentiles and all other races, we continued not to listen. We created our own faiths, worshipping the cardinal elements; earth, fire, wind and water forgetting who created these.
As we continued to detach ourselves from the Godhead, the devil who came to kill, steal, and destroy moved in successfully everywhere.1
Kill does not just mean people; it means ideas, dreams, aspirations, hopes, relationships, in fact anything positive.
Steal does not just mean property, it means fortunes, countries, patents, concepts, beliefs etc.
Destroy does not just mean pulverize or reduce to nothing. It means living without dying, destroying images, impressions, thoughts, dreams, plants and trees. Illness that comes from the devil can curtail destinies and futures of people.
One day I felt God saying to me ‘I am True North Andrew. The enemy is magnetic north.’
So for believers, as you will see, the enemy needs little to deflect us from following God.
Magnetic North is only a few degrees off True North. So for the first hundreds of miles one is not going to notice much. It is only after a few thousand miles or months that one realises how far off one has strayed.
For the unbeliever, the enemy managed to reverse completely the polarity axis on earth to 180°. So North became South. Ian Clayton released this latter revelation he received from the Lord, to me recently. It makes utter sense as these unfortunates are travelling in the opposite direction.
The Rhumb Line
A line crossing all meridians of longitude at the same angle, i.e. a path derived from a defined initial bearing. That is, upon taking an initial bearing, one proceeds along the same bearing, without changing the direction as measured relative to true north
Papa said to me one day: “Andrew, I am the the Rhumb Line which is your direction, scroll and destiny.”
As a sailor and having sailed many thousands of miles across oceans including the Atlantic, I have a great respect for the elements but also for the means to get my bearings. When GPS fails and satellites are not available, a compass is necessary and a sextant (A sextant is a tool of navigation used to measure altitude and enable one to determine location and thus plot a course to travel). These are instruments that have been invented on earth but which come from Heaven.
They have an earthly significance but also a Heavenly one.
If we were created for a purpose, we have a destiny mapped out for us by our Heavenly Father. This destiny is like a compass bearing.
Due to the curvature of the earth, when we position ourselves further north of the equator, if we keep a constant compass bearing, the Rhumb line distance will always be a little longer than if we don’t correct our direction. The fastest route to the USA from the UK is the same for planes and ships; head towards the Arctic more and correct one’s compass angle. The route is shorter than if one went straight across. That’s why you always see Iceland below from an aircraft.
Dependent on ones start of journey and destination, one needs to correct the compass in degrees. As we know when we sail up wind we are unable to point at the wind so the compass bearing changes regularly dependent on how close to the wind we can sail. Through life, Papa does not always take us in one direction. Like sailing we have to tack, changing direction to get to the mark or buoy or port.
Papa’s destiny for us as He is True North, will never follow a straight path until we are on the last lap and very close. He needs us to keep aiming towards Him but take into account distances we are from Him to correct for distractions and diversions. Remember the Rhumb Line is the perfect solution and simplest but dependent on where we are in the world, is not always the fastest route.
Now if the enemy is the magnetic north, what does he need to do to skew our direction? Very little. He only needs to bring us off three degrees over a long trip and we are way off the mark. That is what Papa has been warning me.
I sincerely believe that originally the earth’s axis had true north as the only true and the magnetic north was the same. When the fall came the enemy managed to take the earth off kiltie away from the Light of the World, True North, and the source of Creation. Notice how we even used the word ‘true’ in this context when the navigators and astronomers realised how the world worked.
In a ship and planes, compasses are gyroscopically stabilized and corrected to bring us back to True North. In some instances big magnets are placed outside to correct major aberrations of magnetism such is the seriousness of the effect.
Magnetism is being drawn to something. Magnetic north I believe Papa is telling me, is Flesh and Earthly things, True North is spiritual and Heavenly things.
In my prayer ministry I am often called by the Lord to gyroscopically stabilise people who have come off their true compass bearing. I never really understood why. Now I do. One degree off after a three thousand mile journey is eight miles. The enemy needs to do little to cause this.
The Plumb Line
A plumb line is a weight, usually with a pointed tip on the bottom, that is suspended from a string and used as a vertical reference line. It is used in theodolites and steel tapes as well as ensuring verticality of buildings with respect to gravity of a point in space.
Papa then says to me: “I am the Plumb Line.”
This is very significant because just as if we are off the Rhumb line we can be off the Plumb line from Heaven. The enemy will also try and take us out of the plumb line of Heaven.
‘Imagine the right angle’ He said to me. ‘I am the right angle at ninety degrees to the horizontal. Down from Heaven and out on to your horizon.’
The enemy we know is not under the Plumb line nor is he on the Rhumb line.
How do we know when we are off the right bearing and literally detaching ourselves from the Godhead?
Simply, it won’t feel right! I think gut feel should be called ‘God feel’. How would He feel?3
Our moral compass is calibrated before time began by God. It is pure, unadulterated and feels right. Our golden compass drawn by magnetism not from God, feeds our pleasures and selfish earthly pursuits. It takes us off the beaten track. When we put man above God, we know instinctively there is a risk: Short-term pleasure in exchange for long-term pain. God, we know, is short-term pain for eternal pleasure.
As children, we are pure untainted and naïve, trusting, open and naturally receiving love and giving it. He loved us first and children know it.4 One can immediately analyse world impact on a child by watching them. If trauma or unhappiness has affected them, it shows. If unconditional love and fun has been there from the start, it shines through. Their compasses seem stable and they flow freely. Watch an adult affected by trauma, pain or despair. They are often rudderless, bobbing from one thing to another, no focus or destiny. No bearing in place to direct them to their destination.
Whilst in the middle of the Atlantic many years ago with about fifteen hundred miles to the nearest landfall, a pigeon alighted on our yacht. After a short break it took off again in the direction of North Spain. We took its bearing and as near as we could estimate, it was flying to the nearest point of land. Amazing! It had an inbuilt compass clearly calibrated perfectly.
Do we have the same? I believe so. It is probably underdeveloped in most humans.
The magnetic field clearly has an impact on all species. We seem to be the one that has been taken off True North.
The Daily Telegraph ran a fun article in 2008 about cows that point north when they are resting and three thousand deer in the Czech Republic when observed that did the same. (Reader please remember this when we come to talking later on about being in a state of rest for all things.)
We know there has been much research done on our polar effect in other words how we are affected by magnetic energy.
In the Second World War, the limpet mine divers who swam undercover in darkness to place mines on ships, used compasses. What is less known is the tests that were done on them by our services to ensure they got there. They swam up lakes under test in pitch black and strong magnets were put on the side to see if they were taken off their bearing. Needless to say they were. Having a stronger right or left leg flipper strength also had an effect! There was much to cope with.
So are we affected in the spirit and in the flesh by magnetic and electrical forces? I think so.
Here is a sobering section from Wikipedia on electronic warfare (EW) and the electromagnetic environment.(EM)
Electronic warfare applications
Electronic warfare is any military action involving the use of the EM spectrum to include directed energy (DE) to control the EM spectrum or to attack an enemy. This is not limited to radio or radar frequencies but includes IR, visible, ultraviolet, and other less used portions of the EM spectrum. This includes self-protection, standoff, and escort jamming, and anti-radiation attacks. EW is a specialised tool that enhances many air and space functions at multiple levels of conflict.
I am convinced if man can do this to man then the devil has used these means to destabilise us in brain circuitry, direction and actions. He can undoubtedly impact communications devices. I am sure many of you will have sensed this especially when key God conversations are going on.
We are also given authority over elements but probably do not take advantage of this power.5
The Association of Old Crows(AOC) formed in 1964
www.crows.org is a vibrant organisation.
Here is their mission statement:
To advance strategy, policy and programs for EW/IO, and electromagnetic spectrum operations.
IDENTITY: AOC is an Electronic Warfare/Information Operations (EW/IO) association which promotes electromagnetic spectrum operations and related military. Civilian and commercial applications.
VISION: To be the leader in EW/IO and electromagnetic spectrum operations.
EW/IO provides sovereign options and is essential to national security.
IEW/IO protects and saves lives and is critical to mission success.
EW/IO operates throughout the EMS delivering decisive effects into all other operating domains.
Control of the EMS is essential to global commerce and to controlling operations in domains.
Remember, we either believe or not that all started in Heaven and has been subject to abuse by the enemy.
We know from the Bible the devil was able to manipulate weather. God did not rustle up the storm His Son was slumbering through on the fishing boat.6
On Earth as it is in Heaven.
If we are walking under His authority and approval, we as Christian warriors have the ability to bring down and destroy enemy firepower. Our firepower has God’s Hallmark on it.
New International Version (NIV)
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
If the devil can take us off the Rhumb Line and Plumb Line, what do we need to do to get back on it?
We know that the devil lies. So if we are in agreement with a lie, we will probably be off the Rhumb Line. If we subjugate ourselves to Man in any way, we are certainly likely to be out of alignment with God’s Plumb line.
Subjugation is not the same as under authority. We have to decide at any point if the authority under which we sit whether church, state, company or parents is abused or out of alignment with God’s behavior and wishes.
One acid test is whether or not the authority structures established by God has love motivating its actions. If there is not that, but pure condemnation and judgement which doesn’t highlight His affection towards us, then the authority that was given to said structure is being abused. That controlling authority will be demonic. Beware of authorities where unloving officials have their own agenda, which do not follow the general ethos of the authority.
Read 1 Corinthians 13 to sense check Love.
1 Corinthians 13
New International Version (NIV)
13 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
If there are any missing parts – which pertain to the characteristics of love lacking in an authority’s foundation, then it is not from God. This is the definition of an orphan spirit : Choosing to go it alone, and distancing oneself from God. An orphan spirit can be over an organization, a city, a family, or just a person. The antithesis of orphanship is Sonship. These two do not co-habit.
The Plumb line is a direct connection with God. Unhindered, free, loving, protecting and complete. Just as the plumb weight senses the gravitational force, we feel it when God’s covering is over us.
Just as a clear way ahead and total peace reigns on our direction as we rest in Him, we know if we are on the Rhumb line.
Before I move onto the next revelation arrow, the Lord wanted to make clear how the sextant and its purpose originates in Heaven.
The sextant as mentioned before is an instrument specifically for finding our position from celestial navigation. One measures the angle between two visible objects; normally, the celestial object is the sun or star and the horizon known as the objects altitude.
What the Lord was saying is we bring the Sun down to the horizon for earthly purposes. He brings the Son down to the horizon in the spiritual sense. Both give us a positional fix for where we are. The latter is the most important. It is why He always asks us to turn towards Jesus, our Horizon and Rhumb Line.7
The sky is not the Limit
While praying, a friend of mine was given a message from the Lord that I needed to expand on the significance of the sextant in the book and the skies above. She was given Matthew 16 v1-4 for me to dwell on.
New King James Version (NKJV)
The Pharisees and Sadducees Seek a Sign
16 Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing Him asked that He would show them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; 3 and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites![a] You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times. 4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet[b] Jonah.” And He left them and departed.
The Lord Jesus was criticising the Pharisees for using astrology and not listening to the Prophets He sent. The Lord had been unbundling one of the fallacies that the enemy had perpetrated through promoting astrology (reading signs). This is a good example of where the glory of God manifested in the universe, the stars, and planets is usurped by man’s need to know about the future through reading the stars. The search for portents, symbols and signs that could make him feel better allow the enemy to misguide him. The twelve astrological houses subtly incur the wrath of God by misleading His people into the opposite direction that God has for them. E.g. taking them off the Rhumb Line. This does not mean to say that there are not twelve houses around the earth. So from Aries through to Pisces the names given to stellar objects do have a significance to God. But they do not have the same significance to us. I believe the twelve houses are the twelve seats of the Apostles who are to judge the twelve tribes of Israel and each constellation represents one of the Apostles.8 The sextant is a positioning tool for navigation. Astrology tries to do this causing major upset to the Rhumb Line of the person. Our navigational instrument is Jesus through the Holy Spirit.9 There is nothing else as He is True.
Why did the detachment happen?
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And they eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.”
When Heylel, the covering cherub revolted against God, and was cast to earth,10 he orphaned himself from his Father. The earth became orphaned. God’s purpose of Adam and Eve was to reveal true Sonship on the earth when He gave Adam full authority. When Adam and Eve detached themselves from God, the orphan spirit was created replacing Sonship.
Heylel (Lucifer misnamed by english translation from the latin lux and phosphorus the ancient torch bearing god…… Jesus is the day star) was so angry and felt rejected
Yeshayah Isaiah 14:12-15
Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)
12 How art thou fallen from Shomayim, O Heilel Ben Shachar (Bright One of the Dawn, Day Star, Lucifer)! How art thou cast down to the earth, thou, which hast laid low the Goyim!
13 For thou hast said in thine lev, I will ascend into Shomayim, I will exalt my kisse above the kokhavim (stars) of El (G-d); I will sit also upon the har mo’ed (mount of assembly), on yarketei Tzafon (on the heights of Tzafon);
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like Elyon (the Most High).
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the bor (pit).
We have been getting revelations from the Lord about the Royal Priesthood and the breastplate that the High Priest Aaron and Melchizedek wore.
Jesus is of course the Royal High Priest. Melchizedek was a pre-incarnate image of Jesus but not Jesus.
He told us the reason why Haylel got so angry and revolted.
It is because he had aspirations of becoming the High Priest. He was the exalted cherub and most beautiful arch angel and worship leader.
Lamentation for the King of Tyre Ezekial 28
11 Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
-12 “Son of man, take up a lamentation for the king of Tyre, and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord God:
“You were the seal of perfection,
Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God;
Every precious stone was your covering:
The sardius, topaz, and diamond,
Beryl, onyx, and jasper,
Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold.
The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
14 “You were the anointed cherub who covers;
I established you;
You were on the holy mountain of God;
You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created,
Till iniquity was found in you.
16 “By the abundance of your trading
You became filled with violence within,
And you sinned;
Therefore I cast you as a profane thing
Out of the mountain of God;
And I destroyed you, O covering cherub,
From the midst of the fiery stones.
17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;
You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor;
I cast you to the ground,
I laid you before kings,
That they might gaze at you.
18 “You defiled your sanctuaries
By the multitude of your iniquities,
By the iniquity of your trading;
Therefore I brought fire from your midst;
It devoured you,
And I turned you to ashes upon the earth
In the sight of all who saw you.
19 All who knew you among the peoples are astonished at you;
You have become a horror,
And shall be no more forever.”’”
The Lord led us to understand why His number one covering Cherub /Arch-Angel revolted.His role had been to worship over the sea of Glass and see into all that God was doing.
It was because of Jealousy….
The High Priest ( the role which covers mediator, representative and intercessor on behalf of man. The one who has and had the final judgement call on a matter).
The Breast Plate…
Comprises twelve stones that belong to the twelve tribes of Israel in four rows of three. They are set in the order of birth from right to left. (Exodus 28v10, Genesis 29&30)
Reuben – Sardius
Heylel was missing three for a particular reason. He had nine stones on his breastplate. (Ezekiel 28v13)
The missing three stones were:
Ligure – Gad, who wins in the end.
“Gad, a troop shall tramp upon him,
But he shall triumph at last.”
Agate – Asher, he has fruit and yields royal dainties.
“Bread from Asher shall be rich,
And he shall yield royal dainties.”
Amethyst – Issachar was a burden bearer and bond servant like Jesus is. The Royal Priesthood, Kingship, and majesty.
“Issachar is a strong donkey,
Lying down between two burdens;
15 He saw that rest was good,
And that the land was pleasant;
He bowed his shoulder to bear a burden,
And became a band of slaves.”
We’ve added the words spoken by Jacob over his sons who head up the Tribes of Israel.
Haylel could not have the stones that represented Jesus.
The Hebrew number of the name ‘Gad’ is 54.
The number nine represents judgement.
Six represents man and satan.
Nine people had been stoned in the Bible hence the reason why nine represents judgement.
54 equals 9 times 6.
Jesus is the Judge and Heylel could not be the Judge.
(Heylel uses satan his minion as the accuser.)
Promotion in the Kingdom of God has the following order:
Sons (messengers of God) (Genesis 6v2)
To Royal High Priest.
Heylel was first a son – messenger (not the Messenger) of God, then was promoted to king (of Tyre from earthly representation) , and as the natural order of thinking would follow he expected to receive his promotion – that of a Royal High Priest. Big surprise when God shows Him His real plan and reveals to him that Jesus, His Son, has the sole right of assuming this role.
So why does the devil love it when orphanship thrives? Because he had lost the position of being known as a son of God, and hence due to his lack, he tries to steal Sonship from those who are rightfully, through Grace, deserving of this extraordinary right from God the Father.
Why is there a lack of intimacy in the Church today? Why did we, who first came from God through the line of Adam, decide to be drawn away from the Lord and be separated? Why all the hiddenness?
What was the cause behind it all?
Let us look at the word ‘hid’ first found in Gen 3v8, translated into the Hebrew word ‘chaba’ which means to secrete, to hide (self), to do in secret we are able to discern where the hiddenness came from. It came from something deeper than just hiding from the Lord due to their deed of misconduct.11 Adam and Eve partook of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. And when they did this their eyes were open and they saw the form of their nakedness. Now nakedness in a good sense is symbolic of being intimate with your partner and with your God.
In other words not having any reason to be ashamed.12 But in a negative connotation – to which it applies here – it can symbolize that you are ashamed and in a state of shame as from the day of your birth.13 It can be due to a lack of confidence in yourself that you apply the proverbial “spiritual concealer” that hides who you truly are. No true and lasting transformation is able to be done at all when we are not intimate with our God, for He is the only One who has the ability to change our hearts.14 We will miss the root of something if we are not able to see the whole of the plant’s anatomy.
Likewise, if we – who are a picture of these said plants – are not revealing all, we are not able to be helped in the most effective way. We remain not truly attached to the Godhead.
We only get rid of the bad fruit but not the root, which is a waste of time, because a bad fruit will always grow back if there is a bad root.15
The devil came to steal our intimacy with our Lord because he had already lost it.
“And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”- Gen 2:25-3:1
The word ‘Now’ has a special significance when mentioned in the above Scripture directly after their nakedness because it is so immediate. It gave him only a small window of opportunity to tempt them into feeling Godlike when he knew that they were Godlike.
The devil was first mentioned in the Bible, straight after it was mentioned that the man (Adam) and his wife were naked and they were not ashamed.
The conclusion is that the devil hated the fact that we were unashamed and able to be intimate with our helpmeet and with our Creator. We were created in His likeness and seeing THAT exact image we had at the beginning he came to steal it since he was horrifically jealous that we had the privilege of being created in the image of God. Something he as an angel never had.
One day my Father enquired a very important question of us.
‘Why does the devil hate you, My children, so much?’ We had no idea.
It was a very profound question.
He then replied, ‘Because you look like Me. A spitting image to be exact.’16
We as children of God are made manifest in the full glory of God in the realm of the Spirit when we are born-again. The devil hates the fact that this – though not yet made manifest in the physical, with the glory of God surrounding us, full-time, is like that, in the Spirit.
The sons of God have the DNA of the Father. Where there is intimacy with the Most High, there is power.17 This intimacy causes us to draw nearer to God rather than draw away from Him. The devil knew that a unity like this between man and God – created and brought together by God, could cause massive destruction in his kingdom.18 Because where there are two brought together and in unity, they are able to put ten thousand to flight through their God.
This is why the sacrament of marriage, unity, and support especially in the Church, is so important .19
The devil lost his authority but not his power as God never revokes what He has given to His Sons.20
When there is unity or Oneness in Christ as His body we are able to put much more to flight.
Where there was unity such as Adam and Eve had or whether it be between members of the Church, or between husband and wife, or even the Lord and His Bride, we are supreme.
Our battle is not against the flesh and blood, but against principalities (territory ruled by a prince; a territory from which a prince draws his title); against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.21
Just as there is a body of believers – those who walk together in the Light and with the Light, there are also a body of unbelievers – those who willingly or unwittingly follow the devil.
With that being said, we received a revelation from the Lord that we fully believe with all our heart the Body of Christ can walk into.
One day while at Church, while I (Elo) was busy meditating on the Word during the cell meeting, my Father in Heaven had me meditate on the following:
“ You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” – 1 John 4v4
After a while He had me draw the following comparison.
He asked me, ‘My daughter how big is the earth you’re living in?’. I then told him, ‘Much bigger than I am.’ He then continued, ‘And how tall are you?’ I replied, ‘1.73 meters tall.’
Then revelation hit me, GREATER is He who is in you (Christ in my 1.73m body) than he (devil and his minions) who is of this world (that is much bigger than I am).
What glory we have in us!22
When there is unity or a coming together of more than one believer, or a corporate union, whether it be in the Spirit – to which there is no distance,23 or it be in the physical, such a chord is not easily broken.23
When we pray with the strength of the Lord, out of the overflow of sitting with Him and hearing His Word,24 we receive His rest which is His strength and thus we are able to pray effectively and also combat and destroy strongholds.25
The Church needs the revelation again that it needs God. That we are not fighting with our own strength but with His. That the fight is not physical, but spiritual.26
There are three types of dominion:
- God-like dominion – which born-again Christians can walk into to take back the land27
- Man-like dominion: A bit lower than angels28
- And the dominion that the devil thinks he has29
“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” – Matthew 4v4
How do we get back the dominion and attachment
He had given us?
How do we LIVE the life that Jesus lived in full dominion trampelling the serpent’s head under our feet?30
When we look at the word ‘live’ mentioned in verse 4, the Greek word zao which means God-like life, it says that we shall not live by bread (the Word alone)31, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
The “word” mentioned here is the Greek word rhema, which means revelation.
We don’t just need the Word – mostly everybody has the Word (the Bible), but we need the revelation of it by which we live the Godlike life.
That revelation comes by meditation and the unveiling of the Holy Spirit.
Both the Word and revelation via the Holy Spirit are needed to live the God-like life.
The Holy Spirit is needed. He is part of the Trinity. That’s why the Church needs the Holy Spirit to become the Church again and have the gates of Hell not prevail against it.32
The Holy Spirit is the one who transforms us from glory to glory. Jesus was baptised in water, in the Holy Spirit, and then He was baptised into Sonship. The Father then recognised Him as His Son.
To go from being a servant to being a mature Son claiming his full rights and sending the devil packing.
Everyone who has received Him, to them He has given power to become sons of God.33
The word ‘become’ mentioned in this verse is the Greek word ginomai, which means to cause to be, generate.
This meaning that there is a process involved to becoming a Son. A process from being transformed from a slave being under the Law, trying to earn acceptance, into that of a Son set free by and under grace, knowing he needs not to strive but because they have the DNA of the Father that gives them more than enough right to their portion and inheritance.
The definition to the word “become” includes the following:1) to come to be, develop or grow into.
Clearly it’s something we grow into.
I’ve received a revelation from the Lord some time back that I can clearly testify benefits me even ‘til today.
“But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” – Heb 5v14
One day while in prayer and meditation, I heard Him say to me : “What’s the difference between a babe, a young lad and and a father ( a mature son walking in His inheritance)?”
I then repeated what Bobby Conner replied, “Lord you know. Why ask me?”
He then said, :“Meditate upon what a baby is like.”
A baby is in a fragile state from the day of his birth. A baby has to be nurtured by their parent. They haven’t even developed their understanding yet. Neither have they walked in the ways of life, able to fully discern between that which is wrong and that which is right. They still need to be taught by their parents from a young age in the way they should go, so that when they are old they will not depart from it.34
The same principle is to be used with spiritual children.
Babes, aka new-born Christians/ Christians not yet walking in the fullness of their identity and the rights of a son or daughter of God have need to be fed with the pure unadulterated milk of the word of righteousness.35 They need the pure milk of the Gospel. They need to be taught the basics of the Lord and His word.
These are but the basic characteristics of being a babe. Children don’t just pop out and ‘voila’ they are an adult. It takes time and growth. They don’t become an adult overnight. The same is true in the Spirit.
Included is a testimony of what my wife had experienced in her own life that we believe will benefit you greatly.
When I first came to the Lord, I had been a complete and total wreck. I had followed my Father’s commandments to the best of my ability, but had a sting of guilt each time I failed Him. This literally nearly killed me. More than once I might add.
As I was busy “keeping” the Ten Commandments, I believed myself to have every right to boast of my ability.
Not only that I had use the Word of God, in full truth but not in love,36 and that made me feel as nothing, but I hurt the people who I loved by whacking them over the head with the Bible. Deep down I was rotting away and I did not know how to remedy this.37
Later on, I had suffered a grievous blow to my Spirit because of this, that had took me long to heal.
As I sat in my room on one occasion, I asked the Lord, ‘how can I trust you again Lord? I want to but how do I ever do that with my faith in you being literally nigh existent and I having hesitation in my Spirit to hear from you only to be hurt again?!’
Then I heard the most beautiful words He had said unto me. ‘My Daughter I will teach you to be faithful in My faithfulness. I’ll teach you concerning my grace (unmerited favor) when you accept the FACT of My Word that as I am, so are you in this world.38 Where I will grant you grace and restore unto you simply because I am good. I will be faithful despite your unfaithfulness. Then you will have a good opinion of Me and think highly of Me.39
This is the point where I will establish my grace with you, and where you only need believe that I am literally your ‘Everything’ to receive what I want to give unto you.
True to His word, He taught me, and ever since then I’ve never looked back.
Having gone from a spiritual baby to nearly a full-grown daughter in the Spirit this was all done by grace.
This was all done within the period of a little bit more than one year.
Grace has the ability to make you grow.40 And we get this grace by finding out more about Jesus.
To even further the proof, one day I had visited a very good friend of mine, and when she and I sat down to have a chat, she said, ‘You know what?
I sense a different Spirit about you. The Lord is telling me and showing me that you have grown immensely in Him and have become much more mature in the Spirit. I can see it literally when I look at you.’
I grew by His grace and acknowledging the fact that I have free unmerited access to my portion as His child. I have come to terms with the fact that if not for His love and grace, I don’t deserve any of the blessings that He’s given me. And yet by this grace I receive them because He loves me and delights in giving them to me. That’s the grace that changed the unbelieving Abram to father-of-many-nations-Abraham and conniving, sly Jacob to Israel, Prince of God. By the Lord’s fullness of grace covering Jacob He became Israel, the beloved nation of the Lord. The apple of His eye. Israel His First Born.41
To reattach to the Godhead means accepting grace through His Holy Spirit, and recognizing that God has never and will never stop loving us irrespective of what we do or omit to do.
