A_Place_At_the_Table.jpg

 

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit


Preface:

The Lord was tremendously intense with me about the preparation and study that went along with the prophetic insights and words intermingled with this message. I would like to encourage you to read it all thoroughly and to not only skim through it quickly.

This is an hour when the Word and the Spirit are being brought together to demonstrate the ultimate power of Christ!

In His Shadow, Mary 

 

 "A PLACE AT THE TABLE"

A PROMISE FOR THE DISPLACED AND BROKEN HEARTED"

A Prophetic Insight

By Mary Lindow

 

"Mephibosheth ate at David's table as one of the king's sons. 

Mephibosheth lived in Jerusalem, for he ate endlessly at the

King’s table, even though he was crippled in both feet."

- 2 Samuel 9 vs. 11b-13

 

Just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy and completed, to perfect her by the washing with water through the word, and to establish her to himself as an exultant church, without imperfection or wrinkle or any other defect, but holy and guiltless.

After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church for we are members of his body. This is a profound mystery--but I am talking about Christ and the church.

Ephesians 5: 25b 32

MEPHIBOSHETH: MEANING "ONE WHO SUFFERS SHAME"

The name was a joining by two members of the family of Saul - his son and his grandson. Let's look at this man Mephibosheth.

His life is a picture of a life of disaster, disappointment, and anxiety.

You think you have troubles?

In reading the story we already know that Mephibosheth is motherless and fatherless, because he is under the care of a nurse.

2 Samuel 4:4 also says that at the age of five his father, Jonathan, David's best friend, was killed in battle along with Jonathan's father, King Saul. To add injury to insult, we are told that when Mephibosheth's nurse heard the news of the murder of Jonathan and Saul, she panicked as she ran from harm's way. And in her running, the nurse dropped the child - causing him to become crippled. So the baby prince who was in the line of succession to the throne became a crippled beggar living as an orphan in hiding.

What should have been a life of wealth became a life of misery, tragedy and heartbreak. While his family was being assassinated, murdered, and banished, his future, as a king would never be fulfilled.

AND MORE THAN THAT, MEPHIBOSHETH WAS PERMANENTLY SCARRED!

We can relate to Mephibosheth's being a victim of sad circumstance. Perhaps you can even testify to being victimized by other's mistakes for yourself. Like Mephibosheth who trusted his nurse, some of us can relate to being dropped by those in whom we've placed our trust.

We're living crippled lives because a person in whom we loved and gave our hearts to...has dropped us.

JUST LIKE MEPHIBOSHETH WE KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE DROPPED BY SOMEONE OR SOMETHING THAT WE'VE TRUSTED.

Our lives are still suffering from the crippling effects of those disappointments. Everyone has been "dropped" in some way. And if you haven't, you will be. Some are still so proud in heart that they never admit to any weakness and therefore shame those around them who stumble their way to the cross of redemption.

It's no wonder that we are afraid to trust againbecause we've been lied to or used as scapegoats for the escape of others who hide their sins and egos behind loud opinions about how others should behave or...might have done better in the way they have handled the things that have happened in their life's journey!

MANY ARE AFRAID TO TAKE CHANCES BECAUSE OF PAST FAILURES.

Many more are afraid to follow their heart because the plain idea of making one more mistake sends shivers through them. We can't handle another anguish. Sometimes it feels as though we are hanging on by a fine thread.

If God is a merciful God, we wonder when we're going to start seeing the mercy. Our words echo the psalmist as our soul cries out,

"Lord, have mercy on me!" "Have mercy on me, Lord"

BUT THE THING IS, THERE IS MERCY...  ...IF YOU WILL SEE IT.

If you will allow that mercy to saturate your soul. If you'll see that you have an important role to play in that mercy. In fact, "mercy" is really the only reason that you and I are existing today, whether you know that or not.

You are here today because at some level - consciously or subconsciously - you know that God has been and is merciful to you and you are expressing your appreciation for that mercy. You are here today because you know that despite the hurts that have been inflicted upon you, you want to trust, you want to go on, and you want to find hope.

THE TRUTH IS THAT THERE IS BOTH A BIT OF MEPHIBOSHETH AND 

A BIT OF KING DAVID IN ALL OF US.

And, perhaps a bit of King Saul's fear of the loss of power, position, and need for control and honor. That is, we have been hurt, but we have also been healed.

We have been helped, and we also have opportunity to help others. We really have received mercy, and we can offer mercy as well.

WHEN MEPHIBOSHETH WAS CALLED INTO DAVID'S PRESENCE, HE WAS TERRIFIED!

Why shouldn't he be? As the grandson of dead King Saul, Mephibosheth was an heir to the throne that David now possessed. So his first thought was that the king would kill him because he might see him as a threat.

Secondly, Mephibosheth has experienced little in his life that would make him believe that something good could happen to him, so he expected injury. His own words were, "What is your servant that you should look ona dead dog such as I?"

Then King David sent and brought him out of the house: Mephibosheth must have been terrified when messengers from David knocked at his door and demanded that he come with them to see the king. In the back of his mind he must have constantly anticipated the day when David would do as other kings did and murder every possible enemy to his throne.

UP TO THIS POINT MEPHIBOSHETH AND DAVID NEVER HAD A RELATIONSHIP AND IT WAS BECAUSE MEPHIBOSHETH WANTED IT THAT WAY.

HE AVOIDED DAVID OUT OF UNFOUNDED FEARS. BUT DAVID REMOVES THE FEARS OF MEPHIBOSHETH.

Verses (7-8) So David said to him, "Do not fear, for I will surely show you kindness for Jonathan your father's sake, and will restore to you all the land of Saul your grandfather; and you shall eat bread at my table continually."

Then Mephibosheth bowed himself, and said, "What is your servant, that you should look upon such a dead dog as I?

Mephibosheth didn't feel worthy of such generosity. He considered himself a dead dog, meaning a worthless and insignificant person.

All the years of hiding from the king and Living in fear and poverty made Mephibosheth thinks of himself as Worthless.

THE OFFER OF MERCY

David didn't want to add to Mephibosheth's Misery. David offered mercy.

Mephibosheth - in his amazement and skepticism - is restored.

No, he didn't retrieve the ability to walk. Mephibosheth's weakness did not vanish. The end of the scripture is clear about that. "He was crippled in both feet."

But he was given a place at the table of the king.

This goes far beyond giving Mephibosheth what was rightly his!

THE HONOR OF A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE KING

David gave Mephibosheth the honor of a close relationship withthe king. The miserable, unfair, undeserved events of his past didn't change. But he was re-established within the kingdom and given an opportunity to live out the rest of his life with dignity.

Because David - the King - was merciful.

 

DAVID KNOWS THAT HE HAS BEEN AN OBJECT OF GOD'S MERCY IN HIS LIFE.

That he has already been delivered from extreme circumstances and from ...his own unpredictable behavior.

David is merciful, because he has received mercy - a melody that will continue throughout David's entire life, even when David didn't deserve mercy. And - on another level - David knows that, as he acts as the status of king - also by God's anointing, and not his own skill - that he must model the mercy of God within the kingdom.

BLEMISHES OF THE "CRIPPLED" BRIDE

Just like in Ephesians 5 are the blemishes of the "crippled" bride...she is much like Mephibosheth.

Hiding, fearful! And....the King of our souls, Jesus...restores and cleanses us...brings us to His table as His Bride, and covers our lameness, our disfigurement underneath the linens of the bridegroom's table where no one dare point out our imperfections.

We are perfected BY His Mercy! David knew that human beings and a society that exist without forgiveness and mercy are already doomed to self-destruction by their bitter doubt.

JESUS DIED FOR THIS VERY REASON. SO THAT WE MIGHT MODEL HIS KIND OF GUTSY FORGIVENESS AND MERCY.

AND SO THE STORY FALLS TO US AS EMERGING LEADERS IN THE KING'S KINGDOM!

We who are like Mephibosheth who have been injured by dreadful circumstances and by careless people; and we who are like David, have the opportunity to be instruments of mercy.

We who are like Mephibosheth and David who have received mercy; and we who must decide if we will live lives of resentment because of prejudiced facts or ...live lives of gratitude because of undeserved and unexpected mercy.   The story falls now to us.

BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE. 

AS WE HAVE BEEN VICTIMIZED,

WE HAVE ALSO BEEN DELIVERED.

Remember, David - the King - had to decide if his kingdom would be one of dread or grace. David had to decide if his realm was going to be established on grounds of vengeance or the refinement of mercy. In being an instrument of grace, David is setting the stage for his great, great, great grandson Jesus, who will be the ultimate expression of mercy to all of us.

In the entire history of humanity no one was more misunderstood or viciously abused than David's ultimate successor, Jesus. Yet no person was ever more merciful.

AS HEIRS OF DAVID AND CHRIST IT IS NOW UP TO US TO PUT INTO PRACTICE THE VERY TREASURE THAT DAVID HONORED IN THIS STORY.

Loyalty, respect, unwavering love, and the well being of others.

Like David did for Mephibosheth, God has honored and blessedus with the promise of eternal life, inviting us to dine at His table, in His kingdom eternally. Also, God does this, not because of any goodness upon our part, but "because of Jesus."

THAT IS WHY WE ARE HERE TODAY 

AND WHY WE ARE PART OF THE BRIDE OF JESUS CHRIST.

WE ARE HERE BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN BROKEN.

And because He has restored - and is restoring - US by His mercy, He invites us to His table, we MUST look around to see who else needs a place at the table, on His behalf! Not out of our great "earned reputations" or past accomplishments! No!

We as models of the Fatherly and Motherly compassion of a heavenly King invite others, to the table of "covering" and honor. We bring mercy, expressed with "tender hearts."

The best person to want to be like is not always the strongest or the best looking!! When we become like Mephibosheth, we can truly understand mercy and grace.

BEING LIKE MEPHIBOSHETH MEANS:

  1. Realizing that the king sought me out.
  2. Understanding what I deserved from the king.
  3. Acknowledging the ones who brought me to the king.
  4. Humbling myself in the sight of the king.
  5. Rejoicing in the words of the king.
  6. Accepting the provision of the king.
  7. Adjusting my life to the requests of the king.

Psalm 51:12

Restore to me again the joy of your salvation,

And make me willing to obey you.

The_NArrowing.png

By Mary Lindow through the Holy Spirit

WE THINK THAT WE ARE SO KNOWLEDGEABLE about our own needs and ourselves! But, more often than not, we are just opinionated and headstrong people! We refuse instructions from anyone who could tell us about the deeper things of the spirit, because “We know”, or… “Don’t want to know!” (How DARE you address this Mrs. Lindow)!!!

Hmmmm!  I think I will continue!! **smile**

We stumble along without anyone's help, and all the while we are overlooking that gnawing,“unsettled sense” inside of us, though if we paid attention to this we would see our true inner condition. It is in this way that we acclimate our souls to straggle along in a dark spiritual wilderness, and how we do ourselves so much harm.

MANY, MANY OTHER CHRISTIAN SOULS ARE JUST LIKE THIS. They don't know how to do anything other than let their human senses guide them, and then one day, God intervenes. He arranges things so that one day when you are all alone, there will heave from within your heart a sudden surprising awareness of absolute emptiness. He may also cause you to have a feeling of complete emptiness, but an overwhelming sense of isolation from others, and a lot of loss.

“All of a person's ways seem right in his own opinion, But the LORD evaluates the motives.” Proverbs 21:2

You see, there is nothing but a bottomless crater to look down into the deadness of our own souls if we are not fully committed to God. If you ever come to this place you will know how quickly your soul wants to run away and rush to find something, anything at all, to "fill" itself up again with noise and activity. Art! Food! Beautiful Clothing! The doing of generous deeds! Perfectionistic exercising and self-improvement to show your “Self” discipline! After all... PEOPLE are watching!

The reality of this is… So Is God.


VERY FEW SEE THIS BLEAK MOMENT FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS.     It's a chance to see their need for something that is beyond themselves.

But my friend, this can be a moment where the soul can cross over from its own empty silence into an expected quiet that is alive with his presence. It silences the anguish, the anxious restlessness into a calm and still place of peace. It's as if the soul finds that in this dark place, there is secret well of sweet water,and it springs up and overflows with light and life.

Learning to pass into this place of the spirit and allowing God to keep your soul in refreshing silent tranquility is a true act of the maturing believer.

 

ALL OF YOUR FLESHY SOUL WILL WANT TO RADICALLY FIGHT THIS, and it will do so by trying to analyze what's happening! All of this kind of behavior will just weigh you down and it'll pull you back from walking in the spirit, to walking simply in your own understanding.

The choice we all must make is encapsulated in this statement made by John the Baptist.

“He must increase, but I must decrease.” 

-John 3:30

Another translation of this verse says it even more plainly.

“He must become more important while I become less important."

WHEW!

 

HEAVEN CAN BE ENTERED ONLY THROUGH THE NARROW GATE! 

The pathway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide enough for all the multitudes that choose its easy way.  But the Gateway to Life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it. 

–Matthew 7:13-14

The word “way” translated from the Greek word hodós literally means a natural road or traveled way.  It refers to a way of life or a way of thinking. The word is used six times in the book of Acts as a substitute for Christianity itself.  We can quickly understand that the Christian faith is more than a one-time decision to accept Christ. It is a faith, which alters the very course of a life.

The word “narrow” comes from the Greek verb thlíbo, which means to press or crush as a worker in a vineyard might crush grapes or a crowd of people might press against one another.

This word also means to experience trouble, difficulty, or affliction. Combined with the Greek word hodós, it insinuates a squeezed, straitened, or narrowing pathway.

The cramped condition of the path seems to imply two valuable truths about the nature of the Christian life. It is a way marked out by the will of God, and it is a way marked by difficulty and struggle.

Remember,when your soul discovers how to let the Holy Spirit bring it into this place of inner peace of learning to rest in this stillness, it’s only because God is carrying you in his arms and that you sense no toil or drive on your part. Friends, this accomplishes much more than all of your own actions or works of performance, since God Himself, is at work inside of you.

I am confident that the Creator, who has begun such a great work in you, will not stop in mid-design but will keep perfecting you until the day Jesus the Anointed, our Liberating King, returns to redeem the world.” -Philippians 1:6 (The Voice)

 

IF WE FACE “THE NARROWING”, the challenge of allowing our soul,our flesh to be fully handed over to God’s pathway, He will teach our soul how to overcome three of the most toxic of sins.

These sins are - 

Anger, Envy, and, An unwillingness to obey the Lord.

These run wild through our stony and hardened hearts and they eventually can crumble and ruin us.

 

YOU SEE, OUR SOULS DESIRE TO FIND COMPLETE HAPPINESS, bliss, consolation and security in this world, and this can never really happen! So, God has to show us our great darkness when our soul tries to find spiritual strength there, because there is no sweet and vibrant life when our soul is attached to the things of this world!  It’s a wide and gregarious path in the world, and the crowds on the pathway adore gratification and pleasure of every sort.

Our souls have a natural demand for wanting our own pleasure and achievement, and frustration causes these sins to grow, and they bring the very ugly fruit that is produced from them right into the light! OUCH!

The Lord allows his tool of difficult circumstances to crush and to crack our hard souls. He plants His word of light deep into our darkness. And He pours the living water of His spirit on our dryness and then we soften, as he uproots our old sluggish ways and our complaining about obeying God. Meaning, having to pass up our soothing comforts and pleasures.

 

I URGE YOU TO QUIET THE COMPLAINING OF YOUR SOUL, with its rebellions. We will naturally want to turn back to its pleasure and demands!  But as the world goes further and further into broad deviations of every kind, you as a believer will face a fork in the road.

One of the most cunning temptations of the times that we live in right now for believers is the mindset that says, “ I’m not going to get into any trouble! I can handle things as a Christian just fine! I wont actually “touch the fire” I’ll just play around it!”

What is that fire? It’s justifying and adapting God’s often narrow and absolute instructions about relationships, marriage, sex, self indulgence, arrogance,“harmless" Occult involvement and lording over those whom you feel are less astute or affluent as you.


GOD WILL AND HE MUST BRING THIS DRYNESS OUT OF OUR SOULS and kill these deadly roots! Quiet the pathetic demands of your soul for soothing comforts and a right to be angry and judgmental! When your path seems empty and silent and desert dry, put your soul’s concentration on God alone. You can hardly imagine the harvest of a lasting joy that comes to you when you learn to be free of your soul’s whining. It's there that God can speak quiet words!  They will be so sweet and tender, and he will speak of his great love to us.

KNOW THIS. DRYNESS WILL TRY TO COME AGAIN AND AGAIN.      It wants to lead you to self-justification and an easy escape from the hammer and chisel of God shaping your being, turning it into a reservoir for His purposes. It will try to come back with greater strength each time you resist. So stand your ground and stand firm in the quietness of your brokenness.  Focus upon His presence guiding you down the narrowing path. He will come to you and His fresh guidance will be more amazing than anything your natural mind can imagine.

 

A Prophetic Word Fromthe Spirit of God

For Those Facing “The Narrowing”

 

“Darker and broader and louder come the shouts of world to draw you into its intricate webs.

These webs of deceit are spun with silken tongues and with the softness of the promise of an easier life.

There is a reckoning coming to those that sell lies and imprison those who buy their wares. 

But for those who are determined to not walk on a fence, trying to balance between their own thinking and me, there will be a “Divine Might” that will empower them to continue down the narrowing way.

Where does this narrowing journey lead?

What is the payoff at the end?

As you become more determined and lay aside the things that have hindered you over and overagain from fully entering into the deeper places with me, a lightness and freedom will propel you toward a place of Living Light.

That Light is Me, and you will soon know Me in a different way than you have in past years and seasons.

My one warning to many is that they cannot argue that the path is “too narrow”. 

What mankind might call “rigid” I call “Straight and Direct”. 

If you choose to alter the plans that I have set down for your protection and safety, you will grieve my Spirit and allow a searing of your conscience to override the truths that you know deep in your heart.

“The path of those who do right is straight and smooth. I, who am upright, make the way of the righteous level.” -Isaiah 26:7

“The Narrowing” has begun to increase, and the love for it has decreased among those who choose to remain passive to conviction and pure living.

Allow my Holy Spirit to move freely again. I know what I must do, to break the constraints of man. Let me move! Are you afraid that I might be ridiculed? Or, are you more concerned for your image and patterns before men?

“Do not stifle the Holy Spirit. Do not scoff at prophecies,

But test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good.”

-I Thessalonians 5:19-21

Choose the“Narrowing Way”.  For I, Am there.

Choose the pathway of rightness with me, even when others scoff at your “narrow mindedness.”

When the days become darker and the world tilts and twists in further unrestrained darkness,You will be the carrier of My Light, which can lead the lukewarm and lost down the narrow, but safe, and integral way, to Me.

A word from The Holy Spirit through Mary Lindow


The English term "Pioneer" was originally derived from a French word meaning PICK AX. Later it was also used to communicate the idea of a foot soldier. The Germans use the term "trench digger" to get across the idea of a pioneer.

PREPARE AND REPAIR THE ROAD
A pioneer during times of war was one who marched before an invading army to prepare and repair the road. They did everything from clearing away barricades to setting mines for destroying the works of the enemy.

PIONEERS ARE FORERUNNERS AND SCOUTS.

Like Jeremiah, a pioneer is one who goes ahead of the crowd to remove obstructions for the purpose of preparing the way for others that must soon follow.

"See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, 

To root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant." 
(Jeremiah 1:10)

THESE PEOPLE DO NOT SET MINES AND “BLOW UP” MOUNTAINS OF UNGODLINESS JUST FOR THE THRILL OF WATCHING THINGS BLOW UP! 

No, the pioneer understands that it is his job to prepare the way and make it easier for others to enter into the unmistakable presence of Jesus Christ.

When there are earth shifts or earth “quakes” occurring in the plates of the soil of "Terra firma" - there are shakings, upheavals, and literally fully destroyed old pathways, roads and highways, as well as, the bringing down of structures and habitations.


WE AS PEOPLE ARE REALLY GOOD AT WEARING THINGS OUT!

We wear out people, policies and procedures to ad nauseum! And so, we wonder why the Father must bring those “times of refreshing” only after we repent and deal with our tendencies to want to have everything lined up, functioning like well oiled machines, and…"Controlled!"



 “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, 
That times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” 
 Acts 3:19

THE FATHER HAS NEVER STOPPED CREATING!
He has never ceased to impart brilliant creativity and mind-blowing new discoveries to mankind! He makes things new EVERY MORNING!


It is what we do to God’s creative plans that sour the way it was intended to produce fruit and seed.

AS THIS NEXT WAVE OF GOD’S DIVINE PLAN BEGINS TO BE “REVVED UP” IN THE EARTH, 
FOLKS WILL BEGIN TO ATTEMPT TO ARTICULATE AND DEFINE IT. 


MANY WILL TRY TO SELL IT, 

CAPITALIZE ON IT, 

AND…

…TRY TO CONTAIN IT.

I FOREWARN YOU FROM THE SPIRIT OF GOD-
Just as the manna went moldy if kept or “contained” longer than allowed, so will man’s attempts at trying to “bottle” and distribute this Fresh Wind of Glory which is beginning to manifest from the Throne of God.


SPIRITUAL BALANCE AND A WARNING TO THE SENIORS AMONG US

Moses arrived at the “gate” of his final destiny, the Quest for the Promised Land, but...it was not just the command of the Lord in action that He was required to model. NO! The attitude of His heart towards those coming up underneath him was what God became angered at and…which disqualified him from entering the Land of Promise. The New “Wave of Divine Glory and provision for another generation."



And Moses and Aaron assembled the congregation before the rock and Moses said to them, Hear now, you rebels; must WE bring you water out of this rock? And Moses lifted up his hand and with his rod he smote the rock twice. And the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their livestock.   Num 20:10-11                            


These people having no water were frightened and rebellious toward Moses, calling out insults and being nasty. (When people are immature and desperate, this is characteristic of their behavior.)


At first Moses went to the Lord about all this, instead of retaliating with name-calling. Then after the Lord told him to "tell" the rock to give forth water, Moses in his frustration and impatience yelled at those people calling them "rebels".      



IMPATIENCE IS BROUGHT ABOUT BY "PRIDE"
It's pride that lifts us up to the place of thinking we're better then others, therefore having the right to be impatient with them.



God told Moses to speak to the rock in front of the people and from this rock water would come, giving the people the opportunity to see the power of God working on their behalf. But Moses in hitting this rock went directly against what the LORD told him to do. He not only hit it once, but he hit it twice! This being rebellion robbed God of any glory, as well as going much deeper then Moses realized.


Moses had a life long struggle with anger, and he did not master it. He modeled the anointing with a crusty anger and a withering exasperation…at the people’s cries and need for provision.


"Fathers, don't exasperate your children by coming down hard on them. 
Take them by the hand and lead them in the way of the Master."
Ephesians 6:4 (MSG)

MAY THOSE AMONG US WHO HAVE HAD YEARS OF “PIONEERING AND DESERT WALKING” 

BE EVER SO CAREFUL IN THIS NEXT KINGDOM DISPENSATION to not become sour, harshly opinionated, or brash, and in so doing...strike out in anger at those now coming up asking the question of;  “Where is the water the fresh cleansing drink coming from?” 


REMEMBER:
“From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; 
And from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”
Luke 12:48b 

THE BLOW TO YOUR HEART WILL BE THE DISQUALIFICATION OF FINAL FRUITFULNESS. 

The Lord will send in an Aaron to finish the work. One who has learned the lesson of humility and trusting only in the Voice of God. Not simply dogged and teeth grinding follow-through without mercy or patience.

IF YOU ARE PREACHING THE KINGDOM, THEN YOU WILL RADIATE WHAT THE KINGDOM IS!

Righteousness, Peace, and Joy in the Holy Spirit.
“For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking,

 But righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”
 Romans 14:17 (NKJV)

TO THE NEW BREED OF FATHERS AND MOTHERS AT THE GATE OF GENERATIONAL INFLUENCE
The Spirit of God would caution those of you now arriving at the “gate” of generational influence, to weigh in the balance of Heaven - your heart motives. 

Can you truly say that you are positioning yourself to be a mentor, one who trains fresh runners, in how to grab hold of the “passing of the baton” correctly in order that the next leg of the race is run fluidly and without stumbling?

For you see! That is what you have been painstakingly prepared for over the past few years or more! If you are fixated on finally becoming a “Voice” so that others might know of your personal greatness and oozing impartations, you too will be disqualified from the weight of glory that is going to fall upon the saints in this season. There is still time to adjust the insecurities, the hidden sins of presumption and ego stroking, and to simply… surrender.


GOD IS LOOKING FOR THOSE THAT WALK WITH THE HEART OF DAVID, 

AND BUILD ONLY FOR HIS GLORY ALONE.

Solomon answered, 
"You have shown great kindness to your servant, my father David, because he was faithful to you and righteous and upright in heart. You have continued this great kindness to him and have given him a son to sit on his throne this very day. 1 Kings 3:6

FORERUNNERS ALSO BRING UP THE REAR!
Not only will forerunners be pioneering pathfinders but they will also cheer on, “shepherd” and watch over the flanks of new and eager, younger legions of emerging pathfinders and “seers.” They will parent, counsel, advise, and pick-up and motivate the stragglers, the weary, and the shattered, bringing them into restoration and a family embrace.


WHEN “STARS” START TO IMPLODE

“What happens is that as the star's outer envelope ex-pands rapidly while the core collapses rapidly, a vacuum is developed at the interface of the core and the envelope. The result is comparable to what happens when a building is demolished. An implosion occurs; matter begins hurtling itself inward to the intensely hot core of the star. "An imploding star is a very dangerous place to be.” It’s like pouring gasoline on a fire.
~ Bob Sheldon-Astronomer at Behlen Observatory

THIS SEASON WILL BE ONE THAT SHOCKINGLY BRINGS AND END TO THE "SUPER NOVA" CONCEPTS IN MINISTRY.

People will be sickened and again “worn out” by the demands, and pumping of wallets and overtaxed service to bloated egos and assumed power players. Things will be imploding on the inners core level of ministries not steeped in humility and equal sharing of goods, service, and prayer, although for awhile, they will still appear to shine brighter and brighter.

When the implosion is in full blaze, many will be devastated and “burned” by idol worship and “star gazing” rather than seeking the Daystar of Heaven.

THE SHIFTING OF THE “SPIRITUAL SOIL” OF THE EARTH HAS BEGUN,
and what remains after shaking will be the sounds of simplicity, purity, and a magnification of the Worship of God, not the worship of God... in man.

THE SPIRIT OF GOD HAS BROUGHT WORD AFTER WORD OF PREPARATION AND PROMISE TO GOD’S PEOPLE.

LET THOSE THAT HAVE EARS TO HEAR, LISTEN TO WHAT THE SPIRIT IS SAYING...

…AND HEED ITS VOICE.
