The Lord has appointed how He is going to raise His people in the last days. He has given so many words through the prophets, that is why we cannot go outside the words of the Prophets. It is by the scripture of the prophets which is a commandment of God, and Salvation will reach us again. And the Lord is going to illuminate the revelations of these prophets. The Lord will grant our soul the capacity to absorb, and that is what we see in plants, they have the capacity to absorb. It was the Spirit of Christ that was working and writing through the Prophets to speak life. They never asked or talked of anything else except that which pertains to the Son. The things we find in the scriptures were formed by that Light; that was ordained for men. We need the Light to read the scriptures.
‘Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him. And the LORD said to Satan, “The LORD rebukes you, O Satan! The LORD who has chosen Jerusalem rebukes you! Is not this a brand plucked from the fire?” Now Joshua was standing before the angel, clothed with filthy garments. And the angel said to those who were standing before him, “Remove the filthy garments from him.” And to him he said, “Behold, I have taken your iniquity away from you, and I will clothe you with pure vestments.” And I said, “Let them put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the LORD was standing by’.
The Lord is jealous, and we cannot resist this. Although the enemy can fight us, he can’t fight the ordination. God is not pleased in the Luke warmness of His prophets for they are His hope. Although we are in the earth, we are of the heavenly, and we need to know that as much as there are events holding here on the earth, the meeting is in the Spirit. Joshua, although been coronated as the high priest, didn’t know. We need to be sensitive to the Spirit, things are not plain in the Spirit, and the Spirit is structured. We have to understand the times and seasons in the Spirit, and take it serious. Although, as natural people, we must be able to respond to the Spirit. The coronation of Joshua, happened in the Spirit, and that, for Him had to be seen in the physical. His Spirit was been interacted with, and He just couldn’t but respond in the natural. There are realms in the Spirit that we cannot enter the way we are. Angels have their consecration, and what resist our ascension are inequities, or disobedience or infirmities. There are infirmities that pertain to us as what we do, but Holiness is not what we do, it is who we are. There are dimensions of consecration which is not as a result of what we do, but by election. Our lives are not by ourselves, it is by Ordination. So, when we look outside Christianity, we will see people like that. Cleansing is important for us to ascend closer to where we can see the Lord more. Cleansing takes us higher in the land of the Spirit. We may not understand why God has decided to do a general cleansing, rather than the general prescription given to cleansing, and we tend to forget to take up the mantle.
Zechariah 3: 8-9, ‘Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you and your friends who sit before you, for they are men who are a sign: behold, I will bring my servant the Branch. For behold, on the stone that I have set before Joshua, on a single stone with seven eyes, I will engrave its inscription, declares the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of this land in a single day’
Upon that one stone is seven eyes and the Lord was raising for them again, a different priesthood. The Lord promised to remove the inequity of the Land in one day, and it was not just the inequity of Joshua. What the former order could not achieve is what the Lord did. It is a one-day cleansing program for the people of the Lord. What takes the inequity away is operating with a higher power from the realm of God.
The way Joshua was able to rule was by the Spirit of the Lord, it has never been by power nor by might, but by the Spirit. Imagine the Lord of the heaven and the earth, come down to come and discuss with Nebuchadnezzar. The Land been talked about here is not Jerusalem, but the land of Christ, it is the Lord’s promise that he will do the work with seven eyes of the stone. It was the seven eyes of the Lord that touched the image, and that was how He chose to consecrate His own. Cleansing is a spiritual experience that changes a man in the Spirit. We as children of God, we have our own process of consecration and of how to deal with infirmities and inequities.
There are so many fellows God is raising in the last days, and we will be able to stand in the days of evil, as the strength of the Lord is been ministered unto us.
The Lord is making a people higher than the earth. The Lord is giving us new garments and tearing away the old one.
We receive from the realm of the highest at this time. And our life will be filled with the glory of the Lord.
