ONE NEW MAN

Illustration by Martha Charlton

For close to two thousand years from the time of Abraham, the Father has worked to cultivate the Olive Tree that is Israel, establishing the protocols of relationship to an omnipotent God. He established the altar of worship, laying the foundations in preparation to receive the grafting in of the Gentiles to the Hebraic root, through Jeshua—the Christ (Rom. 11). Since establishing His Church in Christ on the foundations of Israel, God has been at work in the Gentile nations, also for approximately two thousand years. This may appear to be a very long time, and may have given the impression to some that God is finished with Israel, but a thousand years is a day to the Lord (2 Pet. 3:8).

In God’s use of numbers in the Bible, the number four is representative of creation, especially the New Creation (Rev. 21:16). God is now making the necessary preparations to shift into the final completing phase of His work, where the fullness of His purposes in and through Israel will be made manifest, to those who have eyes to see, as Israel awakens once again to their God.

“By Abolishing in His [own crucified] flesh the enmity [caused by] the Law with its decrees and ordinances [which He annulled]; that He from the two might create in Himself one new man [One new quality of humanity out of the two], so making peace. And [He designed] to reconcile to God both [Jew and Gentile, united] in a single body by means of His cross, thereby killing the mutual enmity and bringing the feud to an end.” Ephesians 2:15-16 AMP

Jesus became a stumbling block to Israel, but Israel has also become a stumbling block to the Church! In this last phase of the Father’s work, He will remove the veil of blindness from Israel’s eyes, and from the eyes of the Gentile church concerning Israel; this will usher in a significant Awakening and a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit—the fullness and completion of what began at Pentecost! At the time that both the Foundation and the Cornerstone was laid, there were notable invasions of earth by Heaven, releasing great signs and wonders! The establishment of the Headstone and the release of the ‘sons of God’—the Headstone generation, will also come with a great invasion of earth by the angelic hosts, accompanied by great signs in the Heavens and on the earth!

Israel is a both a natural and spiritual entity, a vessel that is progressively being transformed by God, from the natural into a Heavenly City (Gen. 22:17). Many look at Jerusalem with natural eyes and all they can see is a bloody City; it is time to begin to see with God’s eyes; to understand with his heart, His passion for this nation, a nation that has paid such a tremendous cost to be marked with His Name, from their conception to this present day!

It is important to challenge our beliefs and examine carefully in the Holy Spirit our doctrine concerning Israel, as Heaven begins to shine Light on the Word, releasing fresh revelation concerning Israel, for such a time as this!

“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace…” Ephesians 2:13-15 NIV

One-United
Painting by Christine Peterkin

On the Day of Pentecost the disciples who gathered together were in one accord; they were of one mind as they waited to receive the Promise of the Father spoken of by Jesus (Acts 1:4). Because of the unity amongst them, the disciples were positioned to receive the commanded blessing (Acts 1:14 2:1). The Commanded Blessing will be released in power, in the Day of His Power, when we are of one accord in the One New Man!

“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing— Life forevermore.” Psalm 133

God’s view of union is portrayed by oil flowing down from the Head of Aaron—the high priest of Israel, down his beard to the edge of his priestly garments. Union of the Body of Christ cannot be accomplished until there is honor that produces union between Israel and the Gentile church, and Israel is restored to the place of the head and not the tail! The River of God flows from Heaven through Christ’s secured position in Jerusalem, and the oil flows from the Head of Christ through Israel to His Body.

The Lord’s ultimate plan is that the Gentile Church work together with the Jewish servants of God, to become in unity the Israel of God, and is restored and prepared as the Bride for her coming Bridegroom and King, “…make straight in the desert a highway for our God” (Isaiah 40:3).

“For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jews on behalf of God’s truth, to confirm the promises made to the patriarchs so that the Gentiles may glorify God for his mercy, as it is written: “Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles; I will sing hymns to your name.” Again, it says, “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people.” Romans 15:8-12

To everything, there is a season and a time for every purpose; the time has come for Jew and Gentile to work together to build the Temple of the Lord according to God’s blueprint, and to bring in the Ark of His Presence. In the same way that David made all the preparation and provisions for the building of the Temple of God, Jesus has made all the preparations and provision for the Temple to be completed. The stones have been prepared, the wood has been cut, the iron for the doors and gates is now ready; there is bronze, silver and gold in abundance, and the wine and the oil is prepared (1 Chronicles 22).

God has been at work preparing His skilled workers—Intercessors, leaders, churches and ministries: specialists in every field of building work, “all types of skillful men” and women, each one having their part to contribute, important the completion of the House. The wine and the oil are being prepared to be poured out, to sustain and equip all the workers to complete the building, and for the procession to bring the Ark of His Presence into the Sanctuary.

“Now set your heart and your soul to seek the LORD your God. Therefore arise and build the sanctuary of the LORD God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD and the holy articles of God into the house that is to be built for the name of the LORD.” 1Chronicles:22:19

The enemies of God have been uniting against the Kingdom of God and have been gaining ground. The Body of Christ has proven to be very weak because of its many divisions. It is time to set our focus on the Father and submission to the Father’s Will and the Father’s ways, as the fullness of time for the Father’s purposes and the Father’s dreams has come! As Victor Hugo once said, “Like the trampling of a mighty army, such is the force of an idea whose time has come.”

We are now approaching the time for the Father’s dream of the completion of His House—the building of the Headstone; the time of the Father’s dream for his daughters; the time of the revelation of the Sons of God; the time of the restoration of all things.

It is time for the fullness of the Father’s Promise—the commanded blessing; the time of the Day of His Power—when His people volunteer freely. It is time for the day of the Harvest—the day of multitudes of harvesters being sent into the fields to bless the world in the Spirit of the Father!

It is time for the restoration of the nation of Israel and the Jewish people; the time for the Messiah’s unveiling of Himself to His brethren. It is the time for love and union in the Body of Christ, the time to end the night of wrong as stated by the poet William Merrill:

Rise up, O men of God! Have done with lesser things;

Give heart and mind and soul and strength to serve the King of Kings.

Rise up O men of God! His Kingdom tarries long;

Bring in the day of brotherhood and end the night of wrong.

Rise up O men of God!

The Church for you doth wait,

Her strength unequal to her task

RISE UP AND MAKE HER GREAT!

Faith Marie Baczko: “BRING YOUR GOLD & BUILD”

Jesus is the Pattern of the House of God and the Pattern of the New Man God has been fashioning over the centuries. Jesus is the Plumb Line that holds all things to account pertaining to Yahweh’s House. For three years on this earth Jesus worked with the Father to prepare a corporate vessel fashioned in His very likeness. On the Day of Pentecost the vessel—one hundred and twenty saints, were prepared to be filled with His Divine Life. The Holy Spirit fell and ‘Yahweh Shamah—THE LORD HE IS THERE was written over the Temple of God!

Apostles, raised up by Him were released to ensure that the blueprint remained true to the specifications of The Christ—the revealed pattern of God’s Temple. Over the following two thousand years, because of a variety of reasons, the Pattern became misunderstood and corrupted. Jesus Christ is as vast in depth as our forever expanding universe— yet every detail of the Temple of God must be true to Him, nothing is left to chance or to flesh!

“They serve at a sanctuary that is a copy and shadow of what is in heaven. This is why Moses was warned when he was about to build the tabernacle: “SEE TO IT THAT YOU MAKE EVERYTHING ACCORDING TO THE PATTERN SHOWN YOU ON THE MOUNTAIN.” Hebrews 8:5

Every detail of Christ, revealed through His first coming—the manner in which He came; the heavenly precepts and principles that He taught and lived by, the nation and culture He chose to born into—the body prepared for Him (Heb. 10:5); His death on the Cross, resurrection & ascension—were meticulously planned before the foundation of the earth, and all are vital parts to the Blueprint of the future habitation of God in corporate Man—IF WE BUILD WHAT HE BUILT, HE WILL RETURN TO FILL IT!

Over the span of History, since the time of Pentecost, key features of the blueprint were lost and are presently being restored. Much of the Blueprint that was stolen, destroyed or corrupted by Satan relates to God’s chosen nation of Israel, women in His House, the believer’s authority and the supernatural nature we have inherited in Christ to live a life characterized by sign, wonders and the miraculous.

In these last days God is working to bring the Body into a Holy Union with His Mind and His Heart—once again caught up in the momentum of His Will! As the mixture is being removed, the heavens are opening and the Body is being prepared to receive a fresh revelation of ‘The Christ’ in His Glory! God is releasing us from the captivity of the mindset of religious pride, to return to build the Headstone—the final and last phase of Yahweh’s House, blueprinted by God, prepared for Christ at His return. Religion is being stripped away as the Body prepares to mount up with wings of eagles to fly once again in the Spirit!

“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work.” 1Corinthians 3:11-13

There is a call being sounded to Return and build a Holy place for His habitation, built according to the Plumb Line of Christ, acceptable to Him, having His fragrance, DNA, and Presence. Appearances can give an illusion of success and blessing. As is evident in the world, with a smart mind, belief in oneself and a good business sense, great things can be accomplished, but if Christ is not the beginning and end of all, our works have no eternal value!

BUILD WITH THE SILVER & GOLD YOU HAVE!

gold-513062_1280Carnal works cannot build the House of God! The only substance that can build the House of God, having continuance in eternity, is Silver & Gold tried in the Consuming Fire that is God! A new refined people of courage and fortitude like Nehemiah & Zechariah, came forth from a season of trial in captivity carrying with them God’s heart and blueprint for His House in Jerusalem. Seventy years of captivity was the fire that produced the gold required to re-build the House of God! Hidden within the account portrayed in Zechariah 6:10-15 is a revelation of the true Gold that is Christ!

“Take silver and gold from the exiles Heldai, Tobijah and Jedaiah, who have arrived from Babylon. Go the same day to the house of Josiah son of Zephaniah. Take the silver and gold and make a crown, and set it on the head of the high priest, Joshua son of Jozadak. Tell him this is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘HERE IS THE MAN WHOSE NAME IS THE BRANCH, AND HE WILL BRANCH OUT FROM HIS PLACE AND BUILD THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD. IT IS HE WHO WILL BUILD THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD, AND HE WILL BE CLOTHED WITH MAJESTY AND WILL SIT AND RULE ON HIS THRONE. And he will be a priest on his throne. And there will be harmony between the two.’ The crown will be given to Helem, Tobijah, Jedaiah and Hen son of Zephaniah as a memorial in the temple of the LORD.” Zechariah 6:10-15

The Hebrew names Heldai, Tobijah and Jedaiah mean, out of worldliness, the goodness of Yahweh, and Yahweh has known. These were three men known by God, who by His Goodness were saved out from the world! They were to take the silver and the gold brought back from the exile and take it to the House of Josiah son of ZephaniahJosiah whose name means the foundation is Yahweh, and Zephaniah whose name means Yahweh has secreted! The Israelites were to bring the Gold and silver to the house of the one whom Yahweh has secreted, into THE HOUSE WHOSE FOUNDATION IS YAHWEH!

They were instructed to use the silver and Gold to fashion a Crown and set it on the High priest Joshua, son of Jozadak. The name Joshua means Yahweh saves, and Jozadak means Yahweh has righted. Joshua is representative Jesus the Savior in whose righteousness we stand. They were then instructed to speak the Word of the Lord to him: “HERE IS THE MAN WHOSE NAME IS THE BRANCH, AND HE WILL BRANCH OUT FROM HIS PLACE AND BUILD THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD. IT IS HE WHO WILL BUILD THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD, AND HE WILL BE CLOTHED WITH MAJESTY AND WILL SIT AND RULE ON HIS THRONE.

JESUS IS THE RIGHTEOUS BRANCH WHO BRANCHES OUT FROM THE DIVINELY SECURED PLACE OF JERUSALEM TO BUILD THE HOUSE OF GOD. Christ alone, along with those who are secreted and secured in him, known by him, who are saved out from the world by the goodness of God, builds the house of God! He is our King and High Priest who brings peace and Harmony between those who are called as kings and priests in Him. The Crown of Gold wrought from the precious trials of our life is to His praise and Glory.

“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. 1Peter 1:5-8

The Israelites were then instructed to put this Crown—made from the silver and Gold tried in the Fire of God’s love, and give it to Helem, Tobijah, Jedaiah and Hen son of Zephaniah to be a memorial in the House of God. Helem means to dream & recover, Tobijah and Jedaiah as said before means, the goodness of Yah and whom Yah has known, Hen means Grace and Zephaniah means Yah has secreted.

In summation, the Crown fashioned in the Fire for Christ our King, was to be kept in the House of God as a record and a reminder for those who dream the dreams of God, whom God has known and has kept secreted; that through the Grace of God and the Goodness of God, ALL WILL BE RECOVERED as these returning exiles came to understand!

“When the LORD brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.”… Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy.” Psalm 126:4

It is God’s dream and His great longing that His children would attain to a level of the stature of His Son producing substance having value that lasts for eternity—substance that builds the Kingdom of God—not our kingdoms or earthly empires. Paul instructed the Church to build only on the foundation that was divinely laid in Christ. Paul’s focus was never on fame, glory or recognition for the work he accomplished…he actually said if it was approval of men he desired, he would not be a servant of God (Gal. 1:10). The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but people are tested by their praise. (Proverbs 27:21).

Paul’s focus was fixed on Christ—“…that I may know Him.” Paul was driven solely by the love of God. Paul’s word’s written in prison are still having impact on the world to this very day—that is Gold tried in the fire having value for eternity. Eternal Gold is produced only in the Fire that disciplines those whom God loves. Eternal Gold is the substance of faith produced in this crucible that builds the House of God. God admonishes us to seek this gold!

“I counsel you to BUY FROM ME GOLD REFINED IN THE FIRE, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock…” Revelation 3:14-20

I believe God is now asking us, in the closing days of history: “What are you building? Bring your gold…whatever you have, and build My House! A place where I who am the God of eternity, the beginning and the end, can dwell. A Place that I can make my eternal habitation, where you will not be destroyed by the fire of My Presence, because it is built from the very essence of My Life. My House is Holy, so handle with care! Nothing outside of My Son can stand or will remain! Walk carefully before me now, be holy as I am Holy, and we will accomplish great things in the earth! Multitudes of lives will be saved! I am the Lord of the Harvest, that is My name, and that is My burning desire!”

God is now asking many, like He did Adam and Elijah, “Where are you? What are you doing here?” One was in hiding because of sin, and the other on the run because of discouragement and fear. I believe God is asking each and every one of His children at this significant moment in history, as we are about to be launched out and catapulted into the time of the summing up of all things, “Are you with Me? Are you sold out to My agenda? Are you in time with Me? Are you in line with My will?”

“But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. HE WILL SIT AS A REFINER AND PURIFIER OF SILVER; HE WILL PURIFY THE LEVITES AND REFINE THEM LIKE GOLD AND SILVER. Then the LORD will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness, and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the LORD, as in days gone by, as in former years. “So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, BUT DO NOT FEAR ME,” says the LORD Almighty. Malachi 3:2-5

“YET NOW BE STRONG” – RETURN & BUILD

hammer-451987_1280

When Jesus was crucified, resurrected and ascended to the throne, He laid the groundwork for His disciples to begin to build the Father a House patterned after His Mind, Heart & Life. In the early Church, the believers, who were the living stones, came together in unity to build such a House—one where the Father is worshiped in Spirit and in truth—truth that had been buried under years of error and traditions of men!

God’s plan from before the beginning of time was to dwell in and amongst a people chosen for Himself. Beginning with Abraham the Father initiated the work to prepare for Himself a House, a Place of Dwelling structured and built with the very substance of the Life of His Son Jesus. Yahweh’s House is intended to be a House of transcendent Glory, a habitation of the Godhead for all eternity; a place where God’s sons and daughters will live in His Presence, beholding the beauty of the LORD forever! This Sanctuary is a Heavenly Place, a Dominion and a Royal Kingdom, God moved to establish on Earth in preparation for His Son’s coming rule and reign on earth—A Heavenly Kingdom centered on earth in Jerusalem, “Thy Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven!”

Temporary dwellings were erected on Israel’s journey to the final resting Place of the Ark in Jerusalem, where Solomon was chosen as the one to build the Father’s House for the Glory of His great Name. Solomon is a picture in type of Jesus, the Son of God. This house was built from written specifications received from the Father by David, Solomon’s father, “All this,” said David, “the LORD made me understand in writing, by His hand upon me, all the works of these plans.” (1 Chron. 28:19). Over the course of time, because of sin, disobedience, and idolatry, the people of God lost the Glory—the House was destroyed and the nation was taken into captivity by their enemies for seventy years for a period of discipline. In God’s chosen appointed time, after a long season of refinement, He released His people from exile to return to His Land to rebuild His House for His Glory as a blessing to all the earth.!

buildingAs children of God, we will all find ourselves either in seasons of captivity, where the Father is refining and disciplining us in the fire of His love, or in seasons where we are released and given new opportunities to re-build the House of God according to His blueprint. The return of the exiles to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple was overshadowed by God’s favor—the miraculous nature of God’s providence, accompanied by signs and wonders! Through Daniels prayer Angel Armies were dispatched and Cyrus was raised up to release Israel to return to the land, and to support the work of building the Temple financially. Many heard the call and were obedient to return, to volunteer for the work of rebuilding the House of God, but many had become settled and chose to remain in captivity rather than take the risk into unknown territory!

The people of God have now arrived at such a time in history mirrored in the book of Haggai & Zechariah. Just as with the exiles, over time, the fire present in the early Church diminished and was replaced with religion and the idolatry of self. Complacency followed due to the desire for self comfort. Self interests—the desire to build their own houses and empires, were raised above God’s interests! Ichabod—(the Glory has departed) became written over much of the Church over history as the Glory of God lifted. THE LACK OF GOD’S GLORY HAS LED TO MUCH LACK IN THE HOUSE OF GOD! As it was then, the Father is now asking us to consider our ways:

“You have sown much, and bring in little; You eat, but do not have enough; you drink, but you are not filled with drink; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; And he who earns wages, earns wages to put into a bag with holes.”

Thus says the LORD of Hosts: “Consider you ways! Go up to the mountain and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,” says the LORD. “You looked for much, but indeed it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why?” says the LORD of Hosts. “Because of My house that is in ruins, while every one of you runs to his own house. Therefore the heavens above you withhold the dew, and the earth withholds its fruit. For I called for a drought on the land and the mountains, on the grain and the new wine and the oil, on whatever the ground brings forth, on men and livestock and on all the labor of your hands.” (Haggai 1:6-11)

The Father is now calling for a great move of repentance in the hearts of His people. He is once again sounding the call to return from the captivity brought on by a spirit of religion, pride and works of the flesh, to build the House of God ACCORDING TO THE MEASURE OF THE STATURE OF CHRIST IN THE FULLNESS OF HIS GLORY! A Holy Place aligned to the Plumb Line of Christ according to His Mind, His Heart and His ways!

He is now saying to all His people in every nation from every tribe, and especially to Israel:

“YET NOW BE STRONG…all of you people of the land, and work, for I am with you.” says the LORD of hosts, according to the word I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so My spirit remains among you; do not fear!”
“FOR THUS SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS: ‘ONCE MORE (IT IS A LITTLE WHILE) I WILL SHAKE HEAVEN AND EARTH, THE SEA AND DRY LAND; AND I WILL SHAKE ALL NATIONS, AND THEY SHALL COME TO THE DESIRE OF ALL NATIONS, AND I WILL FILL THIS TEMPLE WITH GLORY,’ SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS. THE SILVER IS MINE, AND THE GOLD IS MINE,’ SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS. THE GLORY OF THIS LATTER TEMPLE SHALL BE GREATER THAN THE FORMER,’ SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS. ‘AND IN THIS PLACE I WILL GIVE PEACE,’ SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS. Haggai 2:4-9

After a long season of refining and preparation God is now about to release His great Armies in Heaven and on Earth, in a divine coalition to defeat the powers of darkness in the Dance orchestrated by Heaven (see previous word on Angel Armies)! God is blowing the trumpet and calling the Israel of God to return with Him to complete the House of God begun in Jerusalem The call is now going out to rebuild the end-time Temple—The Headstone of the House of God—with shouts of GRACE, GRACE to it!

“AND HE SHALL BRING FORTH THE HEADSTONE WITH SHOUTINGS, CRYING, GRACE, GRACE TO IT”

God has prepared a Headstone Generation for such a time and for such a task! A generation that has ascended to union with Christ in Mind & Heart, to become a mature Man of great authority (Ephes. 4:13). When both the Tabernacle of Moses and the Temple of Solomon were completed according to God’s specifications, the Glory of God filled the Temple! The measure that the House of God is structured according to the Father’s design—whether individually or corporately—determines the measure of His Glory it will reflect. At The completion of the end-time Temple in the book of Ezekiel, God’s declaration over it is ‘Yahweh Shamah’—THE LORD, HE IS THERE!

“…the name of the city from that day shall be, ‘The LORD is there.” Ezekiel 48:35

THE GREATER GLORY & THE DANCE OF MAHANAIM

gloring coming

The Body of Christ is poised at the entrance of a volatile season of conflict in the clash of kingdoms, between darkness and THE OVERCOMING POWER OF THE LIGHT OF GOD emanating from the very Heart of the Son of God. It is an appointed time in History belonging to the Overcomers who have passed through grueling tests in God’s refining Fire, to stand as strong towers and enforcers of the Kingdom in a season of great shaking!

Behold, a king will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule with justice. A MAN WILL BE AS A HIDING PLACE FROM THE WIND, and a cover from the tempest, As rivers of water in a dry place, As the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. The eyes of those who see will not be dim, and the ears of those who hear will listen. Isaiah 32:1-3

These are ones who have learned the sublime principles and ways of Christ reflected in His obedience to the Father’s Will, His Love and Mercy for those bound by sin, humility of heart devoid of the need for recognition and praise, not given to offense, fear of man or intimidation, bold and courageous warriors of TRUTH. By surrendering their agendas and embracing the FEAR OF THE LORD, they have received wisdom! There is a pure and Holy River ALWAYS descending on the purposes of God in Christ! Agreement with darkness and disobedience to God’s Word invites dark clouds of oppression, blocking the Sun of an opened Heaven! The heavens are opened over the character and fullness of CHRIST, and are always opened over those who are submitted and united to the intentions of God…and His ways of accomplishing His purposes!Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see HEAVEN OPEN, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man” (John 1:48-51).

THE DANCE OF MAHANAIM: The Angels are Coming!

angel-armySo Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him. When Jacob saw them, he said, “This is God’s camp.” And he called the name of that place Mahanaim. Genesis 32:2

Come back, come back, O Shulammite; come back, come back, that we may gaze on you! Why would you gaze on the Shulammite as on the dance of Mahanaim? Song of Songs 6:13 Amp.

The Hebrew word machanayim is defined as a dual encampment of troops, or soldiers. In the Song of Solomon, the women gaze at the Shulamite—a picture of the Bride. In her they see and prophesy of the awesome Glory of the two armies of God united in one purpose. The Dance of Mahanaim is the coming together of the Armies of God in Heaven and the Armies of God on Earth, MOVING IN UNISON—two armies with one purpose and Divine mission – to establish the Kingdom of God on earth! Jesus is the LORD of Armies! Angels are about to be released en masse to restore, to protect, to heal, to guard God’s purposes and to minister to the saints, however the Armies of Heaven are also sent to war, to defeat the enemies of God! In every battle fought in the Bible, the heavenly host was fighting alongside Israel!

In this crucial hour of history it behooves the Church to pursue understanding of the dynamics of partnering with the Heavenly Host to get the job done! In war, angels are quickly dispatched in answer to the prayers of the saints, praying in the Will of God! Humility of heart and unity of purpose allows the Armies of Heaven and the armies of Earth to act in concert to defeat the enemy. The angelic ARMIES OF HEAVEN are now being released to work with the overcoming Triumphant Reserve who wear the covering of submission to the Will of the Father and the apostolic leadership God has safely secured them to! As the Bride learns to warfare in holiness, Heaven is mobilized to fulfill her prayers!

When Daniel stumbled upon Jeremiah’s prophecy, he realized that the FULLNESS OF TIME HAD ARRIVED for the prophetic Word to be fulfilled and DANIEL BEGINS TO PRAY! Because of Daniel’s humility of heart, his prayer was clothed in the power of God, and anointed with the authority to open a prison door that had been shut for seventy years! In chapter ten, we see the heavenly response because of Daniel’s prayers, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and TO HUMBLE YOURSELF before your God, YOUR WORDS WERE HEARD; and I have come because of your words” (Daniel 10:12).

As the Overcoming Bride readies herself to march across the nations in holiness, and purity of heart, the heavenly host is mobilized and stands at attention as they wait for the Dance of Mahanaim to begin. In the same manner that THE CAPTAIN AND THE HEAVENLY HOST joined with the armies of Israel in the battle for the Promised Land, they will continue to be there for every battle fought WITHIN THE WILL OF GOD! A guarantee that victory is certain!

HEAVEN’S COMING INVASION OF EARTH

gloring comingEach major milestone in the construction of God’s Temple, (represented by each feast), was accompanied by great signs and wonders. At the time that the Foundation stone was laid at the Passover and the Cornerstone at Pentecost, THERE WAS A GREAT INVASION OF THE ANGELIC HOSTS to undergird the work! The completion of God’s work in the fullness of times surrounding the Feast of Tabernacles—the setting in of the Headstone and the release of the ‘SONS OF GOD—will also come with A GREAT INVASION OF EARTH BY THE ANGELIC HOSTS. This will be accompanied by great signs in the heavens and earth in an explosion of God’s power into the earth, as never seen before in history, “As in the days when you came out of Egypt, I WILL SHOW THEM MY WONDERS. Nations will see and be ashamed, deprived of all their power…They will come trembling out of their dens; they will turn in fear to the LORD our God and will be afraid of you” (Micah 7:15-17).

As we move forward on this great journey with God, and approach the crucial hour of completion by a way we have not walked before, it is wisdom to walk carefully and to gain understanding from past moves of the Holy Spirit in God’s unfolding plan. The move of the Holy Spirit in 1994, known as the Toronto Blessing I believe is a key to understanding of the present times. God suddenly showed up in Canada in 1994 in one of the most powerful moves of the Holy Spirit, a move that has touched millions of lives globally…the question that arises is, was this a random act of mercy, or was it unto something much greater in God’s end-time campaign?

At the height of the renewal, I was there at every opportunity, sometimes three of four times per week (except for Mondays, there were meeting every night for twelve years). Prominent in my memory is the line of continual testimonies, night after night from pastors and leaders of every nation and denomination who came dry, thirsty, burnt out and ready to give up the ministry! God came and met these men and women in extraordinary and powerful ways unique to each one! Since 1994, I have also heard thousands of testimonies of pastors, leaders, ministries and individuals who, having been mightily touched by God in Toronto, went on to birth the awesome and wonderful dreams of God that have greatly impacted the Church and the world!

At the height of the revival the lord gave me a sneak peek into a Heavenly view of Toronto. In the vision I saw the Father and a great host looking over a ledge from Heaven into Catch The Fire church. They were all intently watching and observing how the people were partaking or drinking of the River of God that was being poured out. Heaven was looking for those who were wholehearted, those who would choose God’s ways of honor, submission, obedience to the Word, kindness, love, preferring one another and perseverance. As in the story of Gideon, in Toronto, God had gathered an army to His Well to observe their hearts by the manner in which they drank! The name of the well where Gideon gathered his men, is in Hebrew, êyn chărôd, meaning EYE, OR FOUNTAIN OF TREMBLING. God gathered an army at the Well, on Atwell Drive in Toronto, strategically positioned by the Airport, for the nation’s armies to come and GATHER UNDER HIS WATCHFUL EYE…He was looking for and choosing A TRIUMPHANT VANGUARD for His end-time army! These were men and women like Daniel and Gideon that He could work with to complete His Awesome works in the last days and to train-up the next generation of leaders!

During the early part of the revival I also had a very significant dream related to this move of the Spirit. In the dream I saw myself dressed as a glorious bride in white; the train of the gown went on for miles. Within the train there were flowers and gardens of every kind representing the beauty of diversity in the Bride of Christ. I was then taken to have my hair styled, my hair was long and very curly. To my surprise John Arnott, the founder of CTF was the Hairdresser, He used a cream straightener and combed it through my hair over and over, very patiently straightening out the curls until my hair was dead straight. He then proceeded to cut my hair quite short to around the middle of my neck…and the dream ended.

I didn’t understand this dream because I had had such a struggle with unruly curls for so many years, and had recently made peace with God about it, and secondly I grew up in a very religious home and was told a woman’s hair was her glory and should not be cut short. I sought the lord for many years for the interpretation but did not receive any. Many years later I was at a conference at Catch the Fire and John Arnott was the speaker. I suddenly remembered the dream as the Lord whispered the interpretation. He said, “John Arnott is my chosen vessel to prepare my Bride, to straighten out the crooked places of religion.” In regard to cutting the hair short (hair representing Glory), the Lord then said, “IT WILL BE A SHORT WORK TO THE GLORY!” I understood this as a pun in reference to time…that this work would be accomplished in accelerated time! At that time I thought that we were in the Glory, because I had never witnessed or experienced the power of God before, but it seemed that there was a much greater Glory to come! The Lord then gave me Isaiah 40:4-5 as confirmation along with a teaching on this scripture:

“Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought low; the crooked places shall be made straight and the rough places smooth; THE GLORY OF THE LORD SHALL BE REVEALED, And all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

2015 will complete 21 years and begin the 22nd year since the Holy Spirit landed at the little church by the Airport. 2 and 22 have always been very special numbers for me—2 means THE MATTER IS DETERMINED BY GOD, and 22 represents the fullness of authority given to David and to Christ and His people as declared in Isaiah 22:22. I believe God has attained to His heart’s desire—over these years He has been diligently at work in a people and has brought an overcoming people through the fire prepared to march in His authority across the nations of the earth in triumph TO ACCOMPLISH HIS WILL!

I believe Toronto is Mahanaim a dual camp of the Lord. I believe The Toronto Blessing was the initial Move of the Spirit in a ‘Short Work’ of preparation for the last great outpouring of Glory! THE ARMIES OF HEAVEN ARE PREPARING TO INVADE PLANET EARTH IN THE LAST GREAT INVASION to fulfill the plan of God! The long great journey of His-story is on its last leg. We have come to the season of the FULLNESS OF TIME & THE FULLNESS OF MATURITY, on the approach to THE FULLNESS OF GLORY, THE FULLNESS O THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE TIME WHEN THE FULLNESS OF THE RIVER OF GOD WILL BE POURED OUT ON THE EARTH. In God’s END GAME He is strategically preparing ‘LANDING CITIES’ for an invasion of His Heavenly Hosts all over the earth, positioned for revival—cities, and nations that are Mahanaim and connected with Jerusalem in heart. The headwaters of the River of God is Jerusalem—the seat of his Throne. At the appointed time, these ‘cities’ will be flooded with the Light of His Glory in preparation for His return. The River will be re-released as at Pentecost to flow out through the belly of His people to the nations, covering the earth with “…the glory of the lord as the waters cover the sea.”

A great and mighty wave poured in on the day of Pentecost, this wave began to ebb slowly over history. This wave is now a tidal wave, gathering out at sea in power, preparing to flood the earth. The wave that is coming will surpass what began at Pentecost and break open the doors for the LAST GREAT HARVEST to enter the Kingdom of God, ‘For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the lord as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14). Like Daniel who was raised up to pray a shift in History, we are called to pray in the last shift! Our commission now is and always has been the same as John the Baptist and Elijah—to prepare the way for the coming of the King in Glory.

Turn beautiful Bride of Christ…turn that we may gaze in wonder at your beauty and splendor LET THE DANCE OF MAHANAIM BEGIN!

“Who is she who looks forth as the morning, Fair as the moon, Clear as the sun, AWESOME AS AN ARMY WITH BANNERS? Songs of Songs 6:10

CANADA – GOD’S CHOSEN ANCHOR RUNNER

canada
Over the past few weeks the Lord has been stirring my heart in regard to Canada’s destiny and a coming invasion of the angelic host. God has chosen specific nations, released to run at appointed times in History as the catalyst for the unfolding of His transcendent plan. The primary example being Israel, the nation chosen for the establishment of the Throne of God, the container of the whole counsel of God, and the centre of His administrations through whom He has moved out to take dominion of the earth.  From Jerusalem, to Judea, to Samaria the Gospel went to the ends of the earth, by way of certain Gentile nations raised up in appointed seasons. Through Rome, Christianity spread throughout Europe and on to Africa, from Constantinople to the Soviet Union; through Spain to the Americas and through Great Britain to the Commonwealth nations.  It is very important to understand that no nation can usurp the position God has ordained for Israel, or represents the Promised Land from where Jesus will rule and reign over the earth!
 
The United States of America was held in reserve and honored as a land of promise for the escape of religious persecution and to also take the Gospel to the world. God has given the United States great military power as a force to restrain evil on earth. The United States was also chosen to stand as a strong ally and friend to the nation of Israel, to support its growth, guard His purposes contained in it, and protect it from the enemies of God!  The Obama administration wavered in this God given mandate.
 
Also held in reserve for such a time, God is now set to bring forth the last catalytic nation to the forefront—Canada.  Canada has been chosen to play a significant role in the completion of God’s intentions in the last days before His return!  Canada’s mandate is not in relation to its military might but rather, God will invest this nation with spiritual might and authority to enforce key strategies and divine tactical maneuvers in His end-time campaign.
While writing this word, in reference to Canada, I heard the Lord say, “Last Runner.” In researching that phrase I discovered that the last runner in a relay race is called the ANCHOR RUNNER.  The anchor runner is responsible for preserving the lead already secured on the anchor leg or last leg of the race!
 
Canada.svgGod has prepared Canada for the glory of His Presence, as the Anchor Runner in the last leg of the Divine Journey, to lead in the work to prepare the last day sanctuary that receives Christ!  Canada will be used by God to bring forth the yet awaited revelation of the One New Man that Jesus died for, in an authentic union with Israel and with God!  Canada will become a sign and wonder to the nations as a nation that resides under the Glory, favor and blessing of God by its choice to bless Israel!  The three crowns that form the maple leaf on the Canadian flag represent God’s call and authority to release His healing to the nations. The two bars of red on either side of the leaf  represent the Blood and the double supernatural ‘Grace, Grace’ to complete the work to bring forth the Headstone—an apostolic generation raised up as the Mature Man, in a Holy union of purpose with Christ! (Zech. 4:7, Eph. 4:13).
 
The great nation of Canada is poised at the entrance of a season of great national revival! The Church of Canada must make the choice to AWAKEN AND ARISE, to triumph over the forces of darkness pressing in at its gates, with determination to overtake the nation.  It is time for Canada to arise to the Glorious destiny Almighty God has purposed for it! This Mighty move of His Spirit has been revealed to many prophetic voices dating back as far as 1776:
 
Around 1776 zealous Americans sought to persecute the British Empire Loyalists who had turned north to settle in Canada in order to remain under the British rule.  The Spirit of the Lord spoke through the prophets of the Puritan Reformers saying:  “Do not hinder these people, let them move to Canada.  Do not seek to incorporate the land of Canada into America.  I am in the independence of America from Britain, and will mightily use this country.  But Canada has been reserved by Me for the last days for a special work.” (Peter Marshall: The Light and The Glory)
 
Canada has been ordained by God FOR A SPECIAL WORK, to play a critical role in the outworking of God’s plan to unveil the Bride of Christ in preparation for union with the Bridegroom.  This nation has an ambassadorial call, to apostolic leadership, to represent God’s strategies for the closing of this age, and for the unification of the Body of Christ, in its transformation into the Bride of Christ!  In years past I have had three significant revelations from God in regard to Canada that I believe have been reserved for now.
 
PROPHETIC PERSPECTIVES
canada 2In the first vision I saw the map of North America, and as I looked at the map Canada shifted and was lifted up as a holy offering onto God.  As I continued to look, the entire nation burst into fiery red and golden flames.  As I continued to marvel at this site the nation was raised upward and became a Golden Crown.  I believe Canada is a nation where God will establish His Throne of righteousness and justice!
 
The second revelation I received came as I was leading an Intercessory prayer meeting for Canada; as we were praying, the Lord led me to Luke 14:7-11 a parable about a wedding feast:
 
So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them: “When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him; and he who invited you and him come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, go up higher.”

The Lord then said that Canada had been faithful over the years to remain in the background in humility, that it was time for Canada to come to the forefront and take its place in the destiny of God, as He intends to show up in this nation in a mighty and momentous move!  God is now saying to Canada: “FRIEND, COME UP HIGHER, RECEIVE THE GLORY OF MY PRESENCE THAT IS COMING UPON YOU.”
 
The third revelation God gave me was through a dream:  I was on a white horse seated behind the Lord, holding on to Him.  I was wearing a Bridal dress and the train was very long and blowing in the wind as we were flying above the clouds.   We then descended through the clouds and I began to see the earth below.  We flew closer to the earth towards North America.  I then saw Canada.  We flew very quickly toward its Eastern coast line then suddenly stopped just outside of Canada.
 
We sat there looking across the nation of Canada; it was very bright, lit up with white light.  Wide beams of white light were extending up into the heavens from the entire nation, coast to coast.  I then saw a thick white cloud descending over Canada.  As I looked closer I then realized that it was not a cloud at all, but rather, thousands and thousands of angels descending upon the nation.  We stayed outside of Canada observing this; there was the sense in me, almost of urgency—more like a striving to get moving and enter the nation.   I wanted to prompt the horse and move the Lord to enter… the vision then ended.
 
As I prayed to the Lord about what this meant, and why we did not enter, I sensed that it was not yet time! That in the fullness of time HE WOULD ENTER, and when He did enter, all Canada would know it!  The white beams of light ascending to Heaven represented the intercessory prayers of the saints that have been going up through a multitude of prayer movements and Houses of Prayer, all across this nation from coast to coast.  As a result an invasion of the angelic host was being released to prepare the nation for a mighty end-time move of God!
 
Numerous nations around the earth such as Korea have heard God’s call to prayer for Canada and hundreds of thousands have been faithfully praying over the years! Many prophets and leaders have prophesied great things for Canada such as Yonggi Cho, Kenneth Copeland, Cindy Jacobs and Chuck pierce (many of these prophecies can be found on the internet).  Leaders such as David Damien—an Egyptian Christian, must be honored for answering the call to come to Canada to lay the groundwork of cleansing the land of antisemitism and prejudice, to prepare it for its Divine historic mandate!
 
Over history God has used key nations as runners to carry the baton on the Divine journey of the Ascent to Union with Christ!  As in a relay race, each runner must hand off the baton to the next runner within the assigned zone. We are now entering the zone of the Fullness of Times—the time of completion of the House of God and the summing up of all things in Christ, contained in the dynamics of the Feast of Tabernacles. This will be fulfilled in the season of Parousia—the Season of His Presence—the season of the closing of the age, when the level of His Presence will rise exponentially, culminating with His return!  It is time to bless Canada, to intercede for Canada, to cheer her on in her call to run the race well, to finish the Divine circuit and hand the baton back to Israel, as the Body—the One New Man, in a unity of purpose, work together to prepare the way for the return of the King of kings!
 
Now, my son, may the LORD be with you; and may you prosper, and build the house of the LORD your God, as He has said to you. Only may the LORD give you wisdom and understanding, and give you charge concerning Israel, that you may keep the law of the LORD your God…  Therefore arise and build the sanctuary of the LORD God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD and the holy articles of God into the house that is to be built for the name of the LORD.”  1Chronicles 22:9-14
 
In long relays, runners begin by jogging while looking back at the incoming runner and holding out a hand to receive the baton.  I believe God is saying to America, that CANADA HAS BEGUN TO RUN; she has been looking back to you over the years, receiving much treasure from you, and now, is now holding out her hand, to take her place in the race and run the Anchor Leg to the finish line!  Canada and the United States share the longest border in the world, we are friends, allies and most importantly we share a divine destiny in Christ to partner together to serve the purposes of the King.  I believe God is asking the United States and all nations to now stand with Canada and under-gird His purposes with prayer & intercession!

 

A TRIUMPHANT RESERVE

2015 – The Year of The Victory Run!

Faith Baczko“To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven…” Ecclesiastes 3:1

God created times and seasons to serve His purposes and intentions for the outworking of His Divine plan in Creation.  God lives outside of time and moves in and out of time at will. As King over all creation He changes times and seasons to initiate new epochs moving history toward the supernatural, cosmic collision of Heaven and earth, in the culmination of all things in Christ at the end of this age, “THAT IN THE DISPENSATION OF THE FULLNESS OF THE TIMES HE MIGHT GATHER TOGETHER IN ONE ALL THINGS IN CHRIST, BOTH WHICH ARE IN HEAVEN AND WHICH ARE ON EARTH—IN HIM” (Eph. 1:10).
 
Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for not recognizing the signs or understanding the times. God expects us to progress in maturity to understand His ways, to be sober and alert to His movements in History.  God took Israel through a wilderness season design to remove the idols of Egypt from their souls, to teach them His ways, build them up in faith and make them strong in the Spirit.  This was training, preparation and equipping for the prophetic destiny they were chosen and called to fulfill.  The wilderness prepared them for the next appointed season on the journey—to move as a force of one into the promised Land, to possess it for the Kingdom of God!
 
I believe the Body of Christ has also now arrived at such a time in history—a time where we overcome and are victorious in the battles that have worked to shape us as an army. A time where we leave the wilderness and the past behind and move forward to possess the promises of God to conquer lands and kingdoms for the Kingdom of our God! I believe the Lord is saying that 2015 is the year of THE VICTORY RUN for the overcomers who have persevered and endured through the training time of trials and the testing. Overcomers who have come out from fear, doubt and complaining, and are crossing over with faces fixed on their King, to passion and absolute trust in the Lord, moving in strength in the power of His might, with great authority to RECOVER ALL!
 
THE HEBREW YEAR – HEI
 
We have entered the Hebrew year 5775; the corresponding letter representing the number five is hey. The Hebrew word hey means behold, look! revelation! this word can also mean breath. Hei “ה” is also thought to represent a picture of a window.  The year ahead will be a very significant for the Body of Christ, a year where God is opening a window of opportunity for the Body to fulfill its divine commission—an opportune time that cannot be wasted where we must each take hold of God with everything in us and run the race ordained for us.  THIS IS THE YEAR TO TAKE ACTION, TO GO ON THE OFFENSIVE!
 
In 2 kings 13: 15-19 Elisha instructs the king of Israel to open the east window and shoot, when he shot the arrow Elijah declared, “The arrow of the LORD’s deliverance and the arrow of deliverance from Syria; you must strike the Syrians at Aphek till you have destroyed them.” Elijah then told the king to take the arrows and strike the ground; when the king struck only three times Elijah was very angry, “You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck Syria till you had destroyed it! But now you will strike Syria only three times.” Through this example God warns us not to be complacent in the battles ahead as we are facing a demonic army intent on the destruction of mankind! THIS DAY WE MUST FIGHT! However, in the battle we must always remember WE FIGHT FROM A PLACE OF VICTORY! Winston Churchill’s famous quotes sums it up very well—as the world was then facing the tyranny of Nazi army, it now faces the terrorism of ISIS, and other ominous forces on the horizon:
 
We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I can say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.

THE TIME OF DARKNESS BECOMES THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITY FOR THE CHURCH TO SHINE WITH THE LIGHT OF CHRIST!  The numbers in the Hebrew year 5775 are very significant and encouraging—five represents Grace, and the double five, double grace God will release to accomplish the job. The Headstone—the completion of the work of God shall come forth with shouts of “Grace, Grace,” and no demonic mountain or obstacle can stand in its way! (Zech. 4:7).  The double seven represents the completion and perfection of the works of God through His victorious overcoming people.  Five plus seven is twelve, the double twelve represents the fullness of authority released to the people of God to RECOVER ALL: “The earth is the LORD’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein” (Psalm 24:1). The Hebrew language is gender-based, consequently the masculine and feminine form of most words; the letter HEI is the suffix that makes a word feminine.  I believe the year ahead will see a vast army of women moving out and taking their positions alongside men on the frontlines of the battle!
 
WILL YOU DO NOTHING WITH SO GREAT AN INHERITANCE?
 
Years ago the Lord began to highlight the words MAHANAH DAN in scripture to me; I thought they had some significant meaning but they simply mean ‘the camp of Dan.’ However upon further study and investigation I began to understand what He was trying to impart. You see the Danites were not satisfied—they had not yet received their inheritance, “And in those days the tribe of the Danites was seeking a place of their own where they might settle, because THEY HAD NOT YET COME INTO AN INHERITANCE among the tribes of Israel” (Judges 18:1).
 
The Danites set out to explore the land, discovering it was a great land! “So they said, “Arise, let us go up against them. For we have seen the land, and indeed it is very good. WOULD YOU DO NOTHING? DO NOT HESITATE TO GO, and ENTER to POSSESS THE LAND. When you go, you will come to a secure people and a large land. FOR GOD HAS GIVEN IT INTO YOUR HANDS, A PLACE WHERE THERE IS NO LACK OF ANYTHING THAT IS ON THE EARTH” (Judges 18:9-10).

They made the decision to set out! On their way to possess their inheritance they set up camp, and the name of that place became Mahanah Dan (18:12).  The significance of Mahaneh Dan is that it represents the place where we make the decision not to settle for anything less than God’s plan for our lives, where we make the choice to go after our the Great inheritance Christ won for us on the Cross, and begin to move out—WE TAKE ACTION TO GO AND POSSESS IT!  After Samson was born it is said that, “The Spirit of the Lord began to stir him while he was in Mahanah Dan.”  (Judges 13:25). This is the word for us today!  It is time to move out to posses our promises, the time to reap from what we have sown, the time to reap the harvest fields as they are white! WOULD YOU DO NOTHING?
 
Years ago I read an account written by Rick Joyner about the early years of the re-birth of Israel. The returning Jews found themselves surrounded by ferocious armies bent on their destruction. These Jews did not know how to fight; throughout their history in the dispersion they were like lambs led to the slaughter who rarely defended themselves.  The British assigned a man to train them in warfare and develop the Israeli army, his name was Ord Wingate. This officer’s words to Israel ring true for us today, he told them, “There will be no free Palestine for the Jews unless you fight and you will not win unless I teach you to fight…The Jews in Palestine are in bad condition. So long as you all sit in your settlements and wait to fight, you will die before you have the chance to fight. Why doesn’t Hagannah go out and fight!” Today the Israeli army is one of the best in the world in every respect.  All citizens must serve three years in the army—male and female. WOULD YOU DO NOTHING!
 
THERE IS COMING A HEAVENLY INVASION INTO ALL SPHERES OF THE EARTH; the Breath of Life is coming in!  The ARMY OF GOD is rising up!  The Lord is sounding the trumpet.  He is assembling the camps.  He is calling out all His mighty ones to the battlefront.  The Word says His troops will be willing in the day of battle.  Every man, woman and child is being called to take up their positions.  In order to reap this great Harvest and to win this war, God is calling everyone to report for duty.  God is looking to find a people of Faith and Courage who will say, “Yes Lord!” Our trust in Him must be firm, anchored in His love, as we move out to—RECOVER ALL!

Woman – Created In His Image!

 
Painting by Brenda Tarasenko

(Excerpt from my newly revised edition of In His Image)

Woman—so named because she was taken out of man!  A Woman is therefore created from the same substance as man, yet she is fashioned by God as a unique creation. She is God’s divine ingenuity on display, of equal worth and value as a man, as the Scriptures also declares in 1 Corinthians 11:11-12 “neither is a man independent of woman, nor woman independent of man in The Lord. For as woman came from man, even so man also comes through woman but all things are from God.”  Woman—a masterpiece of God, created in the image of God, by God and for God—how can any dare minimize her existence, as do some cultures, religions and even some Christian denominations!
 
God created woman in His Image—no one can argue this fact, as the Word of God unmistakably declares this!  Hence, the distinctiveness of a woman’s being, reflected through what is termed femininity, is absolutely a facet of God’s being—a facet that He felt important enough to be represented in creation.
 
“For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.”Romans 11:36
 
God is neither male nor female—God is Spirit, yet because He has created male & female in His image, there are facets of His being that are both masculine and feminine in nature.  In Isaiah 42:13-14 the prophet Isaiah describes the divine passion of God by deliberately juxtaposing unmistakable masculine and feminine imagery. Verse 13 reads “The Lord shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up his zeal like a man of war …” And verse 14 reads “… Now I will cry like a woman in labor, I will pant and gasp at once.” God has chosen to represent Himself in creation through the two identities of male and female. Our position on this should be to submit to His divine design and the wisdom of His methods, as important to the fulfillment of HIS WILL.
 
Having been born a woman, and coming to know, understand and love God through the nature of femininity, grants me a precious perspective of God, unique to only woman!   I will never know what it means to experience God as a man! I will only ever be able to perceive and know God through the mind and heart of a woman.  Men will never know or fully understand the relationship that exists between a woman and God, as it is uniquely ours—the same can be said for the relationship a man has with God.  As a woman, God has formed within my being a unique ability to experience Him as a Father, yet connect and relate to the feminine facet of His nature through His Heart—let me explain further through my testimony:
 
In preparation for my marriage, God began to speak to me through Proverbs 31, about His design and intention in His creation of woman.  When I first read this chapter in my early Christian life, my first reaction was to question who could possibly be like this woman!  Her character and qualities seemed unattainable to me. She is described as perfect in kindness—the law of kindness is in her mouth!  She is a successful business woman who buys property and trades with merchants in the sphere of commerce. She is a remarkable mother and wife who manages her household with brilliance—her husband and children rise up and call her blessed!  She takes care of the poor and destitute; she makes garments for her children and for sale to others. She is dynamic, full of wisdom, strong, full of courage and dignity—impeccable and noble in character. She is a passionate lover of God who does not fear; SHE CAN LAUGH AT THE FUTURE AS SHE FEARS ONLY GOD!
 
This woman seemed so far beyond my reach, and I was very intimidated!  However, the Lord showed me that with Him living inside me, and with the Holy Spirit as my teacher and Guide, nothing was impossible to me! Over the twenty two years that I have been saved, I have lived with His voice that continually reminds me that I can overcome any obstacle on my path and accomplish any task that He sets before me.  My first tendency is to resist when I am on unfamiliar territory and the job, mission or commission seems so far out of my realm of possibility.  But I have learned that as I have stepped out in obedience to RISK AND TO TRY, He has met me in magnificent ways! During this process I have discovered numerous gifts God has placed within me that I never knew existed.
 
I was always a creative person and became a fashion designer before I was saved. Three months after I fell in love with Jesus, He asked me to give up everything to follow Him.  I gave up my store I had recently opened, my dreams, my family, and my friends—to go to a place, a land that He would show me.  I followed Him to a very tiny village a few hours outside of Toronto—it seemed in the middle of nowhere! In this little town God began the process of the transformation of my character, to conform me to His image and give me revelation and understanding of spiritual things.  Yes, a woman can be conformed to the image of God, although there is much work yet to be done in me!  The Holy Spirit became my mentor and tutor, instructing me in the plumb line of God’s Word and the sublime precepts of Christianity.
 
God began His process of transformation by demolishing the old mind-sets and strongholds in my life that had kept me bound to every known fear, terrible insecurity, selfishness and little self worth.  In return He gave me dreams and visions of a Promised Land in Christ where nothing was outside the realm of possibility! He told me things that I could do and would accomplish in His name that were absolutely and completely impossible for the old Faith!  When I first met Jesus and encountered the Holy Spirit in my downtown apartment, I was a shy, intimidated, stressed out young single mother, who had failed English and dropped out of High school, because at that time I was more interested in parties and having fun.
 
Since God took hold of my life I have become an author and have written four books—because God told me I would and I believed!  With very few to help, I have established a Christian ministry, traveled to other nations and spoken before many hundreds of people—because God opened the door and said go, and I obeyed!  Knowing very little about technology, graphic arts or web design, I have built my own website, created every promotional graphic, designed all my book covers and the interior when there wasn’t money to  pay anyone—because God said I could! The ventures and assignments He has prepared for me in the future this I will do—because it is His will!  GOD BELIEVES THAT WE CAN OVERCOME and do all things in the strength and power of Christ—the question remains, do we!
 
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves
be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1
 
My purpose in saying these things is not to boast, but to boast in an Awesome God, and what He can do in and through a woman, who believes and trusts in Him, and allows Him to do the work of cleansing necessary to purify her heart and soul of the scars, wounds and defilement of life!    Over the years I have learned to walk with Him in righteousness and to discern His voice when He speaks, leading and guiding me daily through the big things and the small details of life.  The closest I have come to the heart of God was through the loss of my only son; God prepared me for this moment over a twelve year period and when it did happen He held me close in His arms to comfort me through the pain and suffering, as both a mother and father would.  That was my first experience with the gentleness of God, as He held my hand and walked me softly through this traumatic time.
 
I have also found that God cares about the things that matter to me uniquely as a woman.!  He has provided beautiful clothes for me, suitable to me, in the times when I had none. He provided makeup for me when I could not buy any—I have bought lipstick only once in 22 years!  He taught me how to cook delicious meals and how to set a beautiful table to bless others in my home.  He decorated my home and provided all the fabric for me to make the drapes in my home—and showed me how to put it together! I could sense His joy in doing all these things for me because it is also a part of His DNA, as He is the Source of all.
 
I have chosen to bare my heart and be transparent in order to paint a picture of someone—a woman, who was nothing and is becoming everything in Christ, because of the Love of God and the will of God!  God has created woman with purpose, to reflect a facet of His being, and to rule and govern His creation alongside men.
 
“Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule… God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule…”
Genesis 1:26, 28
 
Jesus revealed Himself at the resurrection first to women, and entrusted them to deliver the first prophetic word of His resurrection, that would launch a new dispensation of Grace!  With intentionality He engendered a divine appointment with the Samaritan woman, who became the first evangelist to shake and transform a city! God chose women as prophets and teachers, and sent out women like Deborah on apostolic assignments backed by Heaven!
 
God created women to be fruitful and multiply, to have wisdom, authority and dominion in the earth; to lead, teach, instruct and mentor the saints of God, and to represent Him well, and with excellence! Jesus’ mandate for His Church is given to both men and women, one that women must now rise up to obey to fulfill their destiny and the divine call to this generation, to prepare the way of the Lord!
 
“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Matthew 28:18-20

Can You Hold The Ground God Wants to Give You?

Faith BaczkoTHE HOLY SPIRIT WAS SENT TO COMPLETE THE WORK OF GOD TO PREPARE A PEOPLE FOR THE COMING GLORY OF GOD ON EARTH!  He comes possessing the whole counsel of God and bearing the Divine Blueprint of all that is to be built for God, in the name of God.  His requirement for all who would be servants of God to serve and administrate His purposes in the closing of the age is absolute submission to His will.  This is in direct opposition to the human tendency towards desire for control!
 
It is very clear in Scripture that God spent much time and patience to ensure that the men and women He chose to use to fulfill His purposes were vessels who would not capitulate; He chose vessels that were surrendered and accountable to His purposes and directions.  Jesus’ life as a Man, in full submission to the Father is the great example of this!
 
Those that choose to obey God on their own terms, in their own way, in their own time, deceive themselves into believing they are living the Christian life!  Saul chose to compromise on Gods commands and made the grave mistake of modifying God’s instructions to his own reasoning, to suit his own desires, and was disqualified.
 
It is important to intentionally guard our souls, as it is so easy for the enemy to manipulate this desire for independence and control. Because of our passion and zeal for the sphere God has entrusted to us—our ministry, our churches, the people we care about, and even our own walk with God, we can easily fall into the trap of making decisions based on our good intentions rather than His directions!  The fruit of this behavior is, striving, works of the flesh and the possibility of becoming burnt out and falling into discouragement!  God’s Word to us is always, “CEASE STRIVING IN THE FLESH AND STRIVE TO ENTER MY REST!
 
DIVINE REST – THE SCHMITA

The Lord once spoke these words to me very sternly, which was puzzling to me at the time: “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:15).  I was puzzled because I thought that I did believe the gospel…until He clarified.   He explained, “You are in the fullness of appointed times, and the Kingdom of God is FAST APPROACHING!  Repent and believe in the FULLNESS OF THE GOSPEL, a Gospel that encompasses all the anointing, the gifts and the supernatural Life of Christ, evident in Him, and won for you on the Cross as your inheritance…a life of which you are presently living at the very minimum!  Repent for your unbelief and begin to take hold of this Life!”
 
I quickly agreed, realizing that this was very true!  I was not living, and not even believing the fullness of the Word of God in relation to my personal walk, and the scope of what was handed to me at salvation.  I was passive in pursuing my inheritance in Christ! God then showed me Hebrews 3:12:
 
“Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God…”  God calls unbelief evil!  This was a great shock to me as I have always been radically passionate for God and was not aware that I was entertaining an evil heart!  Hebrews three and four describes a generation who could not enter the Rest of God because unbelief had led them on a treacherous path to disobedience!
 
“And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey?  So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.”  Hebrews 3:18-19 
 
GOD’S REST IS THE PROMISE OF LIVING & COMMUNING WITH GOD IN THE REALM OF GREAT GLORY!  BY LIVING AND WALKING THROUGH THE POWER OF HIS STRENGTH, HIS DIRECTION AND HIS ABILITIES, WE EXPERIENCE THE FULLNESS OF HIS PROMISES!
 
“THEREFORE, A SABBATH REST REMAINS FOR GOD’S PEOPLE.   For the person who has entered HIS REST has rested from his own works, just as God did from His.   Let us then make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall into the same pattern of disobedience.”  Hebrews 4:8-10
 
“CEASE STRIVING AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD; I WILL BE EXALTED AMONG NATIONS, I WILL BE EXALTED IN THE EARTH.” Psalm 46:10

The scriptures teach that God would not have spoken of another day of rest if the promise of DIVINE SUPERNATURAL REST did not still stand for us TODAY!
 
“…again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “TODAY,” after such a long time, as it has been said: “TODAY, IF YOU WILL HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS.” For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of ANOTHER DAY.”  Hebrews 4:7-8
 
DIVINE REST IS ENTRY INTO THE SUPERNATURAL LIFE OF GOD WHERE WE SURRENDER ALL, AND HE MOVES IN TO TAKE OVER TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT WE COULD NEVER ACCOMPLISH IN OUR OWN STRENGTH!  Much has been spoken about the Jewish month of Elul that we are presently in; this month is significant as a time of repentance and asking forgiveness of our sins, in preparation of the High Holy days and the ten Days of Awe that come prior to the Feast of Tabernacles.  It is also a time when ‘THE KING IS IN THE FIELD.’ This is a time when the King leaves the Palace and comes close to enter your ‘field.’ I believe in this historic time, it signifies that God is coming very close, He is moving into our spheres to set things in His order and I believe also to take over!
 
Over the last ten years the Lord has been showing me that, “He is coming, before He Comes!’  He explained that His manifest Presence is going to show up in Fullness in the Headstone generation (Zech 4:7) to work through them to prepare the way of His Coming!
“I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the LORD Almighty. Malachi 3:1
We are about to enter the Jewish Schmita year—the seventh year ordained by God when the land was to rest, and all cultivation or harvesting of the ground was forbidden. It was a supernatural time as God promised that if they were obedient, they would receive a bountiful harvest to compensate.  This Schmita year from 2014-2015 is very significant in light of recent world events. This year has been prophesied to be a tumultuous year by Chuck Pierce and a year of possible great disaster by Jonathan Kahn. It will take great courage and trust, and a very strong relationship with the Lord, in order to be obedient to rest in our desire to strive in the midst of troubles around us, and trust Him to release to us His supernatural and bountiful harvest.  If we allow Him His place as LORD in the battles ahead, we will overcome!  We will walk in the Light of His Glory and be victorious!
 
POSITIONED FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT
 
The global Body of Christ is poised to enter a great season of Divine Glory; a time when the God of Heaven and Earth will arise to show His Great power and strength on behalf of those whose hearts are wholeheartedly obedient to Him.  These are saints who know their God, who exalt Him with resounding praise in their hearts, and shall do great exploits in His name!
 
“Therefore behold, I am going to make them know—THIS TIME I will make them know My power and My might; And they shall know that My name is the LORD.” Jeremiah 16:21 NASB

The Lord is setting His people and His Church in Divine order, in preparation for this OUTBREAK OF GLORY!  We are being called to account to bring our lives into Divine alignment to His ways, purposes and His Will!  THE LORD IS NOW STRATEGICALLY RE-POSITIONING HIS PEOPLE FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT!  It is very important in this hour to be moving with the Holy Spirit in a union of heart and mind that comes only through intimacy. Intimate friendship with the Lord gives the ability to hear with precision, receive revelation of His will, and understanding of Spiritual realities!
 
It is a time for every knee to bow to the purposes of God, leave our plans and agendas behind, in absolute submission to His will.  It is a time where we will be tested in our faith, trust and belief in the One we profess to be our God and very God!
 
PREPARED TO HOLD THE GROUND HE GIVES?
 
God is getting ready to release the answer to prayers we have been believing for, for a long time, some are even ancient prayers, prayed by the saints over history; they are about to be answered on a scale not previously seen! The alignment of many factors in God’s timing was necessary to bring us to this day! Can we hold the ground He has purposed to give, is one key factors God has impressed upon me over the years! God is not holding out on us, He is very strategic in all that He does!  He has purposefully and with intentionality worked to prepare us for this day, refining us through very hard trials in His Holy boot camp.   The Holy Spirit has travailed to produce His character in us, secure foundations of unconditional love, to forge within us a stance that is fixed on Him and His Kingdom purposes! He has worked to teach and equip us to use the tools of His trade effectively and with precision. This pattern is evident in His work in the Children of Israel; He took them through forty years of fire to bring forth a generation who were fierce as Lions in search of prey; a generation that moved as one force with precision backed by heaven to strategically infiltrate and possess the Promised Land.  This is that which was spoken of by the prophets! This is that Day!
 
“I have received a command to bless; he has blessed, and I cannot change it.”No misfortune is seen in Jacob, no misery observed in Israel. The LORD their God is with them; the shout of the King is among them. God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox. There is no divination against Jacob, no evil omens against Israel. It will now be said of Jacob and of Israel, ‘See what God has done!’ The people rise like a lioness; they rouse themselves like a lion that does not rest till it devours its prey and drinks the blood of its victims.” Numbers 23:20-24 

I believe all that has taken place in the Body of Christ up to this point has been training and preparation for the Church’s greatest hour in its History!  Those who have willingly allowed Him to refine them in the fire, who have a fortitude of spirit to occupy and hold the ground He gives, are about to be released en masse to penetrate and infiltrate the kingdom of darkness to capture and rescue its prey!
“Can plunder be taken from warriors, or captives be rescued from the fierce? But this is what the LORD says: “YES, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save.” Isa 49:24-25

DIVINE DESTINY – Whose is it?

 
Faith BaczkoThe plan of redemption works to not only ‘buy back’ man from his lost state, but includes the possibility of conformity to the image of Christ and the fullness of union with His very Life—a union that guarantees as an inheritance all that is Christ, of Christ, in Christ and belonging to Christ.
 
God is not interested in men trying to attain to a standard like that of Christ to become somewhat like Him.  His purpose in the whole plan of redemption is that by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, Christ is infused into the very matrix of man’s being permeating his spirit, soul and his thought processes until a Christ man is produced—this is a Christian!  (Faith Baczko – The Plumb line) He lives in us!
 
“…till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the FULLNESS OF CHRIST;  that we should no longer be children…”   Ephesians 4:14 
 
WE LIVE IN HIM
 
When we fully get the revelation that we are planted into Christ’s Body, into His Holiness, our attitudes regarding what it means to be a Christian should change drastically.  As a Christian you have now become united to an ALL-CONSUMING God who is described as FIRE!  Your life is now caught up into an awesome momentum with the Living God that is moving in Power toward the fulfillment of His Destiny.  Jesus’ Life has been fixed and directed toward a specific outcome from the foundations of the earth—to rule and to reign over all the kingdoms of the world, to reconcile the world back to the Father, and to receive His Bride!  Jesus is going somewhere, He is on the move and He is fierce in His movement toward His destination—if you belong to Him and are a part of His Body, you are moving with Him and are caught up into His Life’s passion.”
 
“In Him we live and move and have our being” Acts 17:28
 
The mandate of the generation of saints living in the age leading up to Christ’s return—the army chosen to execute the divine campaign that ushers in His re-entry to planet earth, is both weighty and exalted!  This is a generation that will walk in the righteous character of the lord, clothed in the armor of God’s Glory and armed with His Power to withstand the demonic assaults that will characterize the Day of the LORD!
 
These saints of God will be joined to the lord in a Holy Union not observed since the first disciples!  It is therefore vital that God has a generation prepared, and positioned with divine revelation and understanding of the Call on this notable hour of His-story, that they may be equipped to begin to move out in strength, courage and boldness to do exploits and advance the Kingdom of God on earth!  Yes, God has created and fashioned us for Himself—for His pleasure, however we are also created to accomplish specific tasks in His work, to complete His purposes in Christ, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”  Ephesians 2:10 
 
Works: toil in occupation; by implication an act: – deed, doing, labor, work
Walk in: to live, deport oneself, go, be occupied with
 
The definition of these two Greek words help us to understand our Call in God—that it is an active call, unto something! It is a notable vocation possessing eternal value and having Divine weight, as it is created in Christ and pre-ordained for us from God’s very Heart and Mind!  Because the call is fashioned and prepared for us in Christ, it is therefore not a singular call or work, that can be accomplished in isolation, but one that is linked in Spirit to many, as we are ONE Body in Christ having ONE purpose and one destination—THAT CHRIST THE KING IS LIFTED UP AND GLORIFIED ABOVE ALL, and united in eternal life in His PRESENCE!
 
OUR DESTINY IS HIS DESTINY:
 
Our destiny is therefore His destiny!  We have been born again into the Life and Body of Christ!  We are enveloped by HIS LIFE, and caught up into HIS DESTINY, into the all-consuming fire of HIS PASSION.  WE ARE UNITED TO HIM IN LIFE, CALL, PURPOSE AND WORK as He was to the Father!  The Call is to be Christ sent—ambassadors of Christ sent to finish His work!
 
“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.” 2 Corinthians 5:20
 
When Jesus made the remarkable statement, “It is finished,” as He was about to die, it was THE CRY OF A WARRIOR, that the battle was won and victory accomplished for all who would believe in Him! The work of Salvation was completed and the provision of absolute victory was made for the fulfillment of the plan of God to be accomplished in the fullness of time! In Jesus’ triumph, He was utterly victorious over Satan, completing the work of the stripping and removal of all his authority (Col. 2:15).   However, a practical outworking of what Jesus accomplished on the Cross remains for the sons of God, to enforce His victory and complete His work—just as He finished His Father’s work!  God is seeking saints who are like minded with Christ and united in His Purposes!
“Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to FINISH HIS WORK.”   John 4:34
 
CHRIST’S DESTINY YET TO BE FULFILLED!
 
Jesus has a destiny yet to be fulfilled—a destiny reserved by God to be completed in an appointed time of History, in union with a chosen generation who will say yes and rise up to the upward Call in Christ! The call on this generation is to unite with Christ in His Destiny to complete His work in the last days before He returns. His work is:

– To destroy and FINISH THE WORKS of the devil
“For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” 1Jn. 3:8 (See also Rev. 20:2-3, 20:10)

– To gather His Harvest of Billions—His Glorious reward!
“The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray THE LORD OF THE HARVEST to send out laborers into His harvest.” Matt. 9:37-38 (See also Matt. 13:39)

– The Bride is made ready without spot!
“Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Rev. 21:2  (See also Rev. 19:7)

– That every Word of God is fulfilled
“Son of man, look, the house of Israel is saying, ‘The vision that he sees is for many days from now, and he prophesies of times far off.’ Therefore say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “None of My words will be postponed any more, but the word which I speak will be done,” says the Lord GOD.’ Ezek. 12:27

– To subdue the earth under His Lordship and Dominion:
“For it is written: “AS I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME, AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL CONFESS TO GOD.” So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. Rom 14:11-12

– To finish the Suffering
“Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.” Col. 1:24 ( See also Rom. 8:17)

– He Returns—His feet will stand on the Mt. of Olives

 
A CALL TO CONSIDER OUR DESTINY
 
starsIsrael did not understand, and most still do not understand, the immensity of the call on their nation—that the Almighty God Creator of the Universe, the One who creates and names stars and Galaxies, chose Israel as the Royal vessel, a dwelling for all eternity, where His very Life would be fixed and secured, through whom all the counsels of God, unfolding in a magnificent and majestic plan of Redemption would be fulfilled!  The cost of not recognizing and understanding this was great! However God is a merciful God of second chances, and as many chances—seventy times seven, that it takes to fulfill His will!  Israel will fulfill her destiny in Christ!
“She did not consider HER DESTINY; therefore her collapse was awesome.” Lam. 1:9
 
The Call on the generation now living in this the fullness of time is also weighty, significant, pre-ordained, and cannot be taken lightly or treated flippantly!  We are a generation brought forth to serve the KING OF KINGS and complete His Will on earth!  We are being SUMMONED to come before Him, to stand in His Presence, as Elijah did, and receive authority for our God given mandate!
“And Elijah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the LORD God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word.”  1 Kings 17:1
 
His eyes are looking to and fro, searching for His mighty ones, those willing to say yes to the call to Complete His Destiny with Him!

“RUN UP A FLAG ON AN OPEN HILL.
YELL LOUD. GET THEIR ATTENTION.
WAVE THEM INTO FORMATION.
   DIRECT THEM TO THE NERVE CENTER OF POWER.
I’VE TAKEN CHARGE OF MY SPECIAL FORCES,
   CALLED UP MY CRACK TROOPS.
THEY’RE BURSTING WITH PRIDE AND PASSION
   TO CARRY OUT MY ANGRY JUDGMENT.”
Isaiah 13:3 The Message

FOR THE CAUSE OF ZION!

“For it is the day of the LORD’s vengeance, the year of recompense  for the cause of Zion.”  Isaiah 34:8
 
Faith BaczkoBefore the earth existed, the Godhead devised a transcendent plan to establish a place of abode for themselves; a place that would be recognized by all mankind as the centre of Heaven’s administrations on Earth.  God’s choice was Jerusalem, Israel!  The Sanctuary and dwelling of the Most High God was established in Israel, and as a consequence is known today as the Holy Land.
 
Possessing the understanding that Israel is the central factor in the unfolding of God’s end-time plan will become crucial for all the saints, especially pastors and leaders working and partnering with God to enforce and complete His purposes!  A deficiency in this understanding will become a handicap in the ability to process the movements of God.  An accurate comprehension of God’s intent through Israel provides access to keys that unlock our capacity to apprehend the fullness of His leading and direction, and the facility to be aligned with His plans in this hour!  THE WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD—PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE SUMMED UP IN HIS SON, JESUS—IS CENTERED IN JERUSALEM!
 
“Son of man, this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel FOREVER.”  Ezekiel 43:7

The battles being fought in the spiritual realm—manifested on earth and presently gaining momentum—are all related directly or indirectly to Israel, this tiny piece of real estate on earth the size of New York City.  God’s plan for Israel has been contested by the powers of darkness from the outset.  Satan, the archenemy of God has fully recognized the significance of Israel to the fulfillment of the purposes of God on earth, and works incessantly to thwart God’s plan!  The battle lines are being drawn and the stage is being set for an explosive showdown!  Scripture is very clear in regard to Israel and God’s destiny for this nation, and it is also very clear that to oppose Israel is to oppose God and HIS CHOICE OF ISRAEL!
 
“Cursed be everyone who curses you, and blessed be those who bless you!”  Genesis 27:29

“Also the LORD your God will put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you.”  Deuteronomy 30:7

In this hour—this crucial time God has given us to prepare for the return of Jesus—it is of grave urgency that teaching and understanding of this issue be brought to the nations of the earth!  It is critical to the safety of nations, and to those in the Church who acknowledge the Lordship of Christ, that they make the choice to partner with God for His will to be done—this means to partner and be an ally of Israel.
 
In the Church we have become so accustomed to taking the Scriptures written to Israel and for Israel, and applying them to ourselves, our cities, and our nations that we have become guilty of completely overlooking or minimizing God’s awesome intention for the Land of Israel, the City of Jerusalem and the Jewish people!  Yes, through Christ we do inherit the promises made to Israel and the benefit of the Covenants, BUT THE PROMISES AND COVENANTS STILL REMAIN THEIRS!  Is there any nation other than Israel that God has singled out, set apart and united Himself with them in purpose and in destiny?
 
“Ask now about the former days, long before your time, from the day God created human beings on the earth; ask from one end of the heavens to the other. Has anything so great as this ever happened, or has anything like it ever been heard of? Has any other people heard the voice of God speaking out of fire, as you have, and lived? Has any god ever tried to take for himself one nation out of another nation, by testings, by signs and wonders, by war, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, or by great and awesome deeds, like all the things the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your very eyes?”  Deuteronomy 4:32-36
 
THE HOLY SPIRIT BUILDS THE HOUSE
 
Israel lionThe Holy Spirit comes to build the House of God that Jesus inhabits, individually and corporately.  THE HOLY SPIRIT CARRIES THE WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD AND HE ALONE HAS THE BLUEPRINT OF THE HOUSE.  How important is it then to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and have the heart and mind to be aligned with Him, especially the apostolic leaders who are called to build the House of God.
 
Certain denominations have made the choice to stand against Israel, and many within the Church are now coming dangerously close to aligning themselves to the antichrist spirit of antisemitism arising in these last days!  Some Christian leaders and denominations are even openly calling on boycotts of Israel and joining the ranks of the demonic hosts in protest against Israel!
 
“All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish… Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all. For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Isaiah 41:11-13
If pastors and leaders of churches and denominations, who are called to build apostolically, are devoid in understanding of the significance of Israel to the whole counsel of God, can the House being built be true to Plumb? To be apostolic—as the Church is called to be in the last days, is to have God’s view of His corporate House. It is to be privy to His End Game strategy, His plans and purposes!  It is to have His understanding of the battles in His VICTORIOUS CAMPAIGN to overthrow the kingdom of darkness and take His Seat on His Throne in Jerusalem.  It is to have His Mind and Heart that encompasses all His objectives corporately and Globally.  To see from His perspective is to receive a measure of understanding of the manner in which the dynamics of His Kingdom are PURPOSEFULLY INTEGRATED WITH ISRAEL!
 
The Ark of His Presence is in procession moving with fierce intentionality, heading in ONE DIRECTION, towards JERUSALEM, the Holy City of God, from where He will rule and reign and have complete world Dominion.  If builders do not have His heart and His intention for and through Israel then can they be on the same Journey with Him–a Journey that culminates in Jerusalem?
 
THE BLOOD MOONS DISCOUNTED
 
blood moonSome have discounted the significance of the 4 Blood moons of 2014 & 2015 that will fall on the Jewish feast days of Passover and Tabernacles,  on the basis that three of the four moons will not be seen by Israel and because the blood moons of 1493, 1949 came a year after the events they were a supposed to be a sign of (see previous article).  However, I do believe that the significance of the Blood Moons depends on the perspective with which we look at them!
 
“God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night.  And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years.’” Genesis 1:14
 
God placed lights in the Heavens as signs.  What is the meaning of a sign? The Hebrew word used is oth, which can mean: a miracle, a beacon, a signal, or a sign.  The definition of the word sign is: any object, action, event, pattern, etc., which conveys a meaning.  A sign can give evidence of something past, present or future!
 
What is the significance of the dates of the past three Tetrads that occured in 1493, 1049 and 1967?  GOD HAS BEEN ON A MOVEMENT TOWARD THE DESTINATION OF JERUSALEM FROM TIME PAST—ALIGNING WORLD EVENTS TO ACCOMMODATE HIS PURPOSES!  In 1493 God opened the door to new world He was holding in reserve for such a time, when the Dark Ages of sin and antisemitism had reached its fullness in the Spanish Inquisition. We see an example of this in the Bible when He waited four hundred years for the iniquity of the Amorites to reach its fullness before He came down to deliver Israel and take them into the Promised Land, “…for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure.” (Gen. 15:16).
 
THE TETRAD BEGINNING IN 1949 CONFIRMS THE PROGRESSION OF THE MOVEMENT OF THE PRESENCE ON ITS JOURNEY AS IT MOVES WITH DETERMINATION TOWARDS JERUSALEM!  In the New World, God establishes the United States as a world power.  The United States in 1949 grants de jure recognition to the State of Israel!  The Knesset convenes for the first time! Israel is admitted into the United Nations as the 59th member on May 11th 1949.  In December 1949 Ben Gurion proclaims JERUSALEM AS ISRAEL’S CAPITAL, AND THE FIRST KNESSET IS HELD IN JERUSALEM!
 
THE TETRAD BEGINNING IN 1967 COMPLETES THE JOURNEY IN THE NATURAL!  In 1967 on June 5th-10th through  the miraculous Six Day War, Israel annexes east Jerusalem and JERUSALEM IS RE-UNIFIED under the full governance  and sovereignty of Israel for the first time since they lost it to the Babylonians over 2500 years ago!
 
If these Tetrads are supposed to be signs that only give direction or point the way to these events, but came after the fact, then, yes, they are useless!  However if they are signs that were purposed to confirm or give evidence of movement occurring in the Spirit, then they are worth investigating!  We must also consider whether the Tetrads are sign to Israel, or are they a sign related to Israel?  It is clear that ISRAEL IS GOD’S SIGN to the world and His timepiece.
 
If these Tetrads are signs that speak, what is this present one saying?  In the Bible two witnesses were required to confirm or seal a contract, I believe the two years of blood moons that form the Tetrad are TWO WITNESSES God is giving the world that we have shifted into the Last days as they will not occur again for over a hundred years.

ASCENT TO JERUSALEM!

jerusalemWhen David was rejected and the kingdom was stolen from him, he sent the Ark back to Jerusalem with Zadok the priest.  David believed that he would return if God was pleased with Him. This is a picture of Jesus who was rejected and is re-establishing the Ark of His Presence in Jerusalem in preparation for His Return at the Word of the Father!  I believe The Tetrad of 2014-2015 is a sign that THE JOURNEY OF THE ARK CONTINUES UP TO JERUSALEM TO BE RE-ESTABLISHED AS THE CENTRE OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD, IN PREPARATION OF THE KINGS RETURN.
 
ALL PATHS MUST ALIGN WITH GOD IN THE PROCESSION TO SEE THE KING SEATED IN GLORY IN JERUSALEM!  Are you with Him in this procession, on the same Journey?  Union will take place when we fix our eyes on God and align ourselves in unity with Him! We will go where He is going, which is Jerusalem, Israel!  Jerusalem can never be moved and any who attempt to relocate her will be hurt, as promised in God’s Word!
 
“On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.”  Zechariah 12:3
 
When the Conductor lifts His hands all eyes will be on Him! When Christ the King is lifted up all knees must bow to the King of all kings and the LORD of all lords in obedience to His will and His Words!    All idols must fall away as idolatry is not tolerated in the Kingdom of God.  God is drawing a line and in the days to come it will become clearly evident those who submit to God and those who serve other gods!
“So they feared the LORD, and from every class they appointed for themselves priests of the high places, who sacrificed for them in the shrines of the high places. They feared the LORD, yet served their own gods—according to the rituals of the nations from among whom they were carried away.”  2Kings 17:33 
The deception of the last days will be exceptionally brilliant in its ingenuity and demonic anointing. In the last days our only protection is to be found in knowing, understanding and standing on the Word of God with humility, fear & trembling, not of man or circumstance, but of God, “But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word,” (Is. 66:2).
 
Theodor Herzl once dreamed of a Jewish state restored after 2000 years of exile and his dream was granted.  Likewise the people of the King must now dream the dreams of God for the Kingdom of God to be established in Jerusalem, and begin to travail for the Return of the King!  Jesus has positioned Himself in JERUSALEM are you headed for Christian city or for THE CITY OF GOD!
 
“Son of man, this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel FOREVER.”

THE PRESENCE, THE JOURNEY, THE DOOR & THE BLOOD MOONS

Faith BaczkoTHE ARK OF THE COVENANT SIGNIFIES  THE PROMISE OF GOD’S PRESENCE, a promise based on our agreement to follow hard after Him on a Journey of obedience!  The Bible declares that all creation reveals the Glory of God!  His attributes can be recognized by the sublime magnificence of His handiwork.  When we make the deliberate choice to search for Him, we will find Him!  His face becomes visible within the starry hosts of heaven and in the wind of the rustling leaves of majestic trees!   However, God has also chosen to reveal himself in manifest ways throughout the history of Israel and in tangible form as the Son of Man.

The manifest presence of God chose to come down, to a chosen nation set apart for his purposes, to initiate the awe-inspiring Plan of Redemption, to recover mankind from their lost state and restore them back to the everlasting arms of love, I have come down to deliver them…” (Ex. 3:8).

THE PRESENCE ‘CAME DOWN’ and lived amongst people—His very heart’s desire before the foundation of the world!  The Plan of Redemption, centered in Israel, held the Key to salvation for every tribe and nation on earth.  THE PRESENCE came down and initiated the beginning of His transcendent Plan, a plan that is revealed on a Divine Journey, and completed with His manifest PRESENCE ruling and a reigning over the earth from Jerusalem!  God marked both the beginning and the end,  and significant milestones of the journey, with three major Feasts times and celebration.

THE JOURNEY: PASSOVER TO TABERNACLES

The beginning was sealed with the Passover feast. This signified the crossing over of a people into His purposes, those set apart as a holy offering unto Him.  God established the Feasts of the Lord as His Feast!  The continual celebration of these Feasts prophetically declared to Israel and to the world, the key facets of His ultimate Plan of Redemption to build Himself a Home in man individually and corporately.   The Passover feast prophesied the coming of Christ our Passover—the lamb slain for the salvation of the world.   He was the sinless One and the Holy First Fruit of many, resurrected onto God.  The Feast of Pentecost prophesied of the coming of the Holy Spirit—the BREATH and Life of God released into the Body of Christ.  The completion of God’s Plan will be marked and sealed by the Feast of Tabernacles. This Feast represents:

  • The ingathering of the Great Harvest of souls at the end of the age
  • The COMPLETION OF THE GREAT JOURNEY characterized by the temporary dwellings places of the Journey, fulfilled at the completion of the Temple of God
  • The RETURN OF CHRIST
  • The Great Wedding Feast of the Lamb. 

The Feasts of Passover & Tabernacles marks the beginning and the end of God’s Plan of Redemption.  Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega, and we have all entered on this Journey from Passover to Tabernacles with Him as we grow on our ascent to Union with the Christ!  This Journey is characterized by the Cross—we continually pass through a series of crosses as we are purified and prepared for the Holy One—Jesus said we are to pick up our cross daily!  The Earth will also pass through the Cross at the Great tribulation to be purified and prepared for Him. 

THE JOURNEY IS ULTIMATELY HIS JOURNEY!  God came down and carried Israel through the crossing from Egypt into His purposes.  He has been moving on this Journey through History purifying and gathering in His children along the way.  At Salvation we enter into HIS JOURNEY; we then move out with Him to follow the Ark of THE PRESENCE!

CARRIERS OF THE PRESENCE

Those called to lead and carry the Ark of THE PRESENCE were required to be wholly consecrated unto Him and to carry the Ark in a prescribed way.  David made the mistake of not complying with God’s demands resulting in a man’s death.  David learned as we must also learn the protocol to be carriers of HIS PRESENCE, as He is a Holy God! IN THE PROCESS WE AQUIRE THE UNDERSTANDING THAT WE ARE TOUCHING THE PRESENCE OF THE LIVING GOD ALMIGHTY—THE GREAT I AM!

In His great mercy God gives many chances to get it right, although there is sometimes a cost! David made a second attempt, this time doing it God’s prescribed way.  They sacrificed every six steps and “David danced before the Lord with all his might” up to Jerusalem—Jesus’ Home and seat of His Throne (2 Sam. 6:14). The Body of Christ is on such a journey with THE PRESENCE.  On our individual and corporate journey we have made many steps and pauses where were given the opportunity to praise, worship and thank Him that He would even allows us to be on the Journey with Him!

COSTLY WINE

About eight years ago I had a dream that I believe is significant for this month.  In the dream I was wearing a very long coat.  I reached deep into my pocket and pulled out a bottle of wine.  On the bottle was marked boldly the number 414.  The bottle was already open and a small amount had spilled.  My close friend and a pastor was in the room and we all looked at the spill.  My friend then said that she was desperate to get this wine and went to make a call to see if she could find it.  When she came back I asked her if she found it, she said she did but it was far too costly!

Years later I was working on a particular chapter in my book, In His Image! the chapter title was For Such a Time As This based on the book of Esther. When I checked the scripture reference I saw that it was Esther 4:14.  I then understood the meaning of the costly Wine.

“For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise from the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father’s house will perish.  And who know but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this, and for this very occasion?” Esther 4:14

Esther could have lost her life but she counted the cost and made her decision, “If I perish, I perish.” The year I had the dream, Passover fell on April 14, revealing the very high cost that Jesus, our Passover paid on the Cross when His blood—the Costly Wine, was poured out for us!

THE BLOOD MOONS & THE PRESENCE

This year Passover falls on 14/4/14, in a very special year marked by a series of Blood Moons referred to as a Tetrad (see previous article—Shifting, Shaking & the Coming Blood Moons).  The first moon will be seen the night of Passover which begins the evening of the 14th of the 4th  month of 2014,.  The number 4 represent the YEAR OF THE DOOR (see article –A Tsunami Wave of Answered Prayers).  In the Hebrew alphabet the dalet is the 4th letter and means ‘door,’ and its numeric value is 4. I believe the Doors to significant breakthrough are opening in the 4th month of April. The Body of Christ is about to pass through a SPIRITUAL DOOR and a SHIFT into a season that God is marking with 4 Blood Moons!

We are being shifted into the season of the COSTLY WINE.  God is about to pour out an abundance of NEW WINE, but it will be very costly!  There is always a cost to following the Ark of THE PRESENCE as David came to understand; David quickly learned that the Ark had to carried in obedience to God’s Word, with humility, with reverence and with GREAT JOY. THE PRESENCE was to be carried by the priests—those who God set apart and consecrated for this purpose! 

FOUR GOLDEN RINGS were to be crafted on either side of the Ark for the poles. It was to be lifted up and carried on the priests shoulders—not pulled on a cart.   I believe the 4 Blood Moons falling on the Jewish feasts of Passover & Tabernacles over a two year period, is a sign that reflect the 4 GOLDEN RINGS used to LIFT UP the Ark, that mark the movements of THE PRESENCE on its JOURNEY from Passover to Tabernacles

I was very resistant to sharing this revelation I believe God gave me, but after choosing to be obedient I divinely stumbled on this article as I was finishing this message.

“If you were standing on the moon during a total lunar eclipse you would see the Earth as a black disk with a brilliant orange ring around it,” said Alan MacRobert of Sky and Telescope magazine. “And this brilliant ring would be bright enough to dimly light up the lunar landscape.” (Hamilton Spectator- April 7th 2014)

blood moonThe Tetrad of Blood Moons,that begin at the Passover Feast, reveals that THE PRESENCE is once again moving and about to make a major shift on its JOURNEY up to Jerusalem, on its way to the Feast of Tabernacles to complete God’s transcendent Plan of Redemption!  The Ark of THE PRESENCE moves progressively, taking territory on its way to establish the Kingdom of God on Earth as it is in Heaven!  God’s Presence is about to mark another milestone of THE JOURNEY of His-story as He moves to fulfill His purposes on Earth!

The procession of the King, up to the Seat of His Throne in Jerusalem is about to begin!  This is fiercely contested by the power of darkness as they know their time is short!  The Body of Christ must carefully watch the Ark of THE PRESENCE as we have not walked this way before (Josh. 3:4).  We must set out from our present place or position, consecrate our hearts, be prepared to make sacrifices, ready to drink the COSTLY WINE He is about to pour out!  In my dream the bottle of wine had been opened and some wine had spilled, and yes we have experienced a measure of the Costly Wine of HIS PRESENCE, however, God has saved the best for last! He is about to pour out this COSTLY LAST WINE in abundance to His People!

It is time to transition from the Jesus of Salvation, revealed in Passover, to the Jesus of Glory revealed in Tabernacles—from being saved to being SEATED ON THE THRONE! 

“But when it pleased God…to reveal His Son in me…” Galatians 1:15-16 

“But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the LORD, And of justice and might…” Micah 3:8

Only a revelation of THE CHRIST in Glory will bend the knee and cause all to fall prostrate before the Majesty of the King of kingsThe majesty of the Glory of Christ revealed in us will overwhelm and consume all that hinders, and all obstacles on our path as we shout, “Grace, Grace!” 

As the Blood Moon makes its appearance in the early morning of the 15th,  this would be a good time for shofars to sound throughout the Earth! The Lord of all the Earth is setting out and releasing the Armies of God to go forth with Him in Power and in strength of His Might to complete His purposes on Earth! The Kingdom of Heaven is coming down!

“BEHOLD, THE ARK OF THE COVENANT OF THE LORD OF ALL THE EARTH IS CROSSING OVER BEFORE YOU…” Joshua 3:11

SHIFTING, SHAKING & THE COMING BLOOD MOONS

Faith BaczkoWe are now living in a time of great uncertainty in the earth.  When the walls first came down in communist countries in the late 1980’s, the entire world was talking about peace, but peace has become an elusive thing as the mystery of iniquity revealed and exposed through the darkness of evil, insidiously grows on the earth!
 
Many volatile and unstable nations now have nuclear power; while others like Iran & North Korea, empowered by the kingdom of darkness, work feverishly toward acquiring it in their quest for power. They blatantly threaten Israel and the world with annihilation, the demonic goal—to ultimately prevent the return of Christ.
 
Religious wars continue to rage in the Middle East, as great unrest ominously hovers over the region. Turkey is once again rising up with aspirations to establish itself as an Islamic Caliphate in the former image of imperial glory. Ethnic and religious wars and skirmishes sporadically break out over the Globe, all sowing the seeds of malevolent hatred that is compelling the world toward the great battles of the last days and fulfilling the prophetic words of Scripture:
 
“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains…Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come… For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again. If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.” Matthew 24:1-22

We have seen the markets crash in recent years and they are presently very unstable in many nations of the world. The environment suffers under the hands of mankind and the supply of water to sustain the growing populations of nations is diminishing.  Certain species of fish and animals are mysteriously disappearing and animals and mammals act in bizarre and inexplicable ways.  The stability of our climate has become a major concern as change in climate patterns disrupt the farming and food supply, and natural disasters destroy crops in many nations.
 
The most violent in the history of hurricanes, floods, tidal waves, tornadoes, fires, and earthquakes are continuously shaking and battering the earth taking with them thousands of lives each year.  New and old diseases are on the rise and strange and mysterious signs and sounds are being recorded in the heavens above and on the earth below.
 
“And there will be strange signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And here on earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides. Luke 21:25 NLT
 
God has placed signs in the Heavens to mark His appointed times within the context of the completion of His plan of Redemption and the restoration of all things! These are times when shifts occur in the spiritual realm that impact and change the course of world history.
 
“God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night.  And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years.’” Genesis 1:14
 
Blood Moons
 
One such sign, or series of signs, is the Tetrad of blood moons that will fall on Jewish Feast days in 2014 and 2015. A Blood moon is a total lunar eclipse in which the moon has a reddish glow—a term used in Scripture, and a Tetrad is the term used by NASA for a series of four such moons in a row, over a two year period.  A Tetrad has been a fairly rare occurrence during the centuries since the coming of the Christ. However, even rarer still, during this time, seven Tetrads have occurred with the moons falling successively on the Jewish Feasts days of Passover & Tabernacles in both years. The Tetrad of 2014 and 2015 will make this the eighth—a number that signifies a new beginning!
 
The last three Tetrads have marked very significant events in relation to Israel’s history: the first of the three occurred in 1493 and 1494 immediately after the expulsion from Spain of all Jewish people who refused to convert to Catholicism, and the subsequent torture of those who did. This expulsion divinely coincided with the discovery of a New World, one that would become a refuge to the Jews and the persecuted saints.
 
The next Tetrad occurred in 1949 and 1950 immediately after the rebirth of Israel as a Jewish state and the subsequent war of Independence, prophesied in Scripture and ordained by God.  The last occasion that a Tetrad occurred was in 1967 and 1968 when Israel reclaimed Jerusalem, the Holy City of the King, after the miraculous Six Day War!  These events were all marked by turmoil and wars that shifted and shaped history in dramatic ways!
 
I believe that through these signs in the Heavens God is making a Statement to the world and to Israel that He is seated on His Throne as Sovereign over nations, and all the affairs of mankind—that He alone has the final Word as the One who determines the course of World History! These signs are a declaration that His Word stands firm forever and cannot be broken—His Word will accomplish all that He has spoken, and no force in heaven or on earth can stop it!
 
I once had a vision of an armored tank moving slowly across the sands of time. On its side was written boldly THE WORD OF GOD.  When voices were raised in opposition to His Word, and the enemies of God attempted to change His appointed times, the Tank continued to roll, crushing all opposition in its path.
 
When angry voices railed against Israel and God’s destiny for the Jewish people to return to the land and for the rebirth of Israel as a nation, and many were in unbelief that Israel would or could ever be a nation again after two thousand years of dispersion…the Tank continued progressing on its path, driving over all opposition to THE WORD OF GOD!  Israel did become a nation again just as prophesied in the Bible and God marked the event with four blood moons! Israel did regain control over Jerusalem, the City Jesus will return to, and God marked that event with four blood moons!

What will the blood moons of 2014 and 2015 signify—we do not yet know, but I believe they will mark something of consequence of which God wants the world to take note of, as the nation of Israel will be able to see only the fourth moon of the Tetrad.
 
“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD. And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance…” Joel 2:32 
 
The fourth moon that falls on September 28th on the Feast of Tabernacles is also a Super moon and will be seen by Israel.  A super moon is one that appears larger because its orbit is much closer to the Earth.  It is predicted that this will be the last Tetrad of blood moons to fall on Jewish feast days for over a hundred years.
 
Does this mean that the Tetrad of 2014 and 2015 is the sign that will initiate the start of the Day of the LORD—the Great Tribulation of Matthew 24:21 as some have said? It is possible, and I do believe we are very close, but the blood moon of Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12, are not necessarily in reference to a Tetrad of four moons correlating to the Jewish Feasts, they could also be isolated blood moons of which there will be others to come.
 
However, I do believe that the Tetrad of 2014 and 2015 and the fact that there will not be another for over a hundred years signifies that God is about to mark an appointed time that will significantly shift the course of history! This could very well be the last major shift that begins the countdown to the Day of the LORD!
 
This turn in our course will begin a turbulent period of history during which God’s plans and purposes will be summed up and completed—culminating with the Return of Jesus!  I believe the impact of events that cause the shift will awaken the Church, thrusting it out of a place of complacency into the Harvest fields.
 
The Church will begin to move out to work in the harvest fields with the angels who minister salvation. It will begin to fulfill its mandate to disciple nations and peoples, and begin to work towards the release a great harvest of souls that will be gathered into the House of God at the end of the age, during a great time of tribulation, “…the harvest is the end of the age” (See Matt. 13:24-43 and Heb. 1:14, Acts 8:4. 11:19).
 
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 
 
The years ahead promises to be very turbulent, volatile and sometimes catastrophic as the shaking prophesied in the Word of God erupts all over the Globe through the weather, the economy and mysterious events!
 
“See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.  Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:25-29 
 
Today, governments of nations covering the Globe are searching desperately for answers to the extraordinary problems the world presently faces, while peoples of all tribes and cultures are seeking answers to the deep questions of life and the purpose of our existence on this tiny planet we call Earth!
 
Believe in Jesus!  He is the only answer that God has given us!  He is the only One that can calm the storms and bring peace and truth into our lives.  He is the only Savior that can protect you and your family and navigate you through the dark times ahead for the earth!  If ever there was an opportune time to reach out to Him, this is that time, this is that day!

Abundant Blessings

NEW RELEASE
NEW RELEASE

 

A NEW CRUSE REQUIRED!

Faith Baczko“Son of man, what is this proverb that you people have about the land of Israel, which says, ‘The days are prolonged, and every vision fails’? Tell them therefore, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “I will lay this proverb to rest, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel.” But say to them, “The days are at hand, and the fulfillment of every vision. Ezekiel 12:23 

The Body of Christ is divinely shifting into God’s appointed times and seasons in the approach to the fulfillment of all things and its ascent to UNION WITH CHRIST.  There is heightened spiritual awareness of movements and shifts occurring in spiritual dimensions as the battle lines are being drawn and God’s Kingdom enforcers are being groomed, prepared and positioned for victorious territorial inroads!

These times of shifting and transitioning into new secured positions, that are strategic places of authority, may come with some confusion, perplexity and with the shaking of our circumstances AS THE OLD SHIFTS TO MAKE WAY FOR THE NEW!  In spite of this we must move into this season with great expecting, for God is now drawing out into deep waters those He has prepared, establishing them within boundaries they will occupy and take dominion!

The character and fortitude of generals and leaders are forged within the fire of conflict, YET THEY MUST RISE ABOVE TO OVERCOME AT ALL COSTS!  So it is with God’s leaders being raised up now for a volatile season of conflict ahead, both in the spiritual and the natural. God’s people must be strong and of good courage as His Word declares that HE IS WITH US! He goes ahead as the Conqueror, He covers us from behind and WILL NEVER FAIL US!  This is the season to overcome all fears and eliminate all soulish hindrances!  It is time to move beyond the status quo and the mundane into a season of Spiritual excellence.

A NEW CRUSE REQUIRED

When God’s chooses to initiate a new phase of His work, a new model is prepared to accommodate the work.  At Jesus’ first coming the Lamb was slain and the Cross became established as the foundation of the Temple of God.  With Jesus’ death on the Cross many aspects of the old model of the Temple were no longer relevant or supportive of the new direction and movement of God to embrace the nations and all mankind.

God is ever on the move, His face set toward the completion of His purposes and Divine will!  It is vital to be moving in sync with Him in His quest to complete His magnificent obsession—Jerusalem, the Holy City of God—the Bride of God!

As God now moves into the completing phase of His work to be summed up in Christ’s return, a new model or wineskin will be required to sustain the Body through the demonic onslaught released, in their hopes of preventing the Return of the King, and to bear the weight of the Glory of God descending and enveloping the Temple of God’s people!

Outside of the fundamentals, many aspects of the modern day model of the Church is founded on traditions that have become mostly ritualistic and religious form—continually going through the same motions with little evidence of the Presence and the Power of God, and having limited impact in the communities and cities it serves.  I believe many aspects of this model will change to accommodate billions from the Harvest that will be coming into the House of God, and to fashion a Bride that moves the heart of God and compels Jesus to return!

In 2 Kings 2:19 we find an analogous situation; the people of the city come to Elisha to say in effect that their city was good but the land was very unproductive due to the condition of the water.  Elisha tells them to get a NEW CRUSE (KJV) and put SALT in it!  Elisha then poured the SALT into the source of the water and the water was healed.

“The people of the city said to Elisha, “Look, our lord, this town is well situated, as you can see, but the water is bad and the land is unproductive.” “Bring me a new bowl,” he said, “and put salt in it.” So they brought it to him. Then he went out to the spring and threw the salt into it…” 2 Kings 2:19-21  NIV

THE COVENANT OF SALT

In the Bible there are three scriptures that refer to a Covenant of Salt.  In the book of Leviticus God declared that every offering was to be seasoned with salt.  In an interesting article I recently read, in reference to this Covenant, the author made the point that although the case for salt is made for its cleansing, purifying nature and one that adds flavor, God declared that everythingthe grain offerings which were not preserved by salt and the burnt offerings that were entirely consumed were also to be seasoned with salt. This indicates that there was something beyond these attributes—that are vital, that God was after!

“And every offering of your grain offering you shall season with salt; you shall not allow the salt of the covenant of your God to be lacking from your grain offering. With all your offerings you shall offer salt”. Leviticus 2:13  (emphasis mine)

With a careful look at all the references to salt in the Old and New Testament, the one attribute that becomes clearly evident in what God is after in this Covenant, is the worship of God evidenced by TRUST IN GOD!   “Don’t you know that the LORD, the God of Israel, has given the kingship of Israel to David and his descendants forever by a covenant of salt?”  2Chronicles 13:5 

David had to trust God for the truth of this Promise, and act in faith accordingly, based on the goodness and faithfulness of God!  As descendants of Jesus—the Son of David, we have been given the kingship to rule and administrate the kingdom of God!  Will we trust God as a God of His Word and step out in faith and act accordingly?

The saints of God encircle the Globe, dwelling in Cities that have great potential for good, but the water is bad—this Hebrew word means evil or good for nothing!  I believe the water of God’s Word coming from the Church contaminated with a mixture of doubt and unbelief, in a good and great God who keeps His promisesThis water is not producing God’s desired end, the land is barren and unfruitful and very little is accomplished for the Kingdom, “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor… It is then good for nothing…”  (Matt. 5:13).  The truth of what we really believe is revealed in the trials and tests!

The Hebrew word for unproductive is shekel and also means to miscarry or suffer abortion—a phenomenon evident in the life of the Church, as many great beginnings don’t get carried through to fulfillment and we find ourselves back where we started. Could it be that there is unbelief hindering us! Are we are lacking the endurance and perseverance that comes from AN ABSOLUTE TRUST IN GOD TO TAKE US THROUGH INTO FULFILLMENT?

Elisha’s answer is to get a NEW CRUSE!  The Hebrew word for new is chadash and means: fresh, a new thing, it is from a root that means to rebuild and repairGod is fashioning and re-building a new container for His Coming Glory, one that has FRESH OIL AND PURE WATER!  It will be a NEW CRUSE that is fruitful and productive, that produces an army whose faces are fixed on the Lord and whose foundation is a trust in God that is absolute, supernatural and sublime in veneration of His Majesty!

The Covenant of Salt is the binding of one’s self—mind heart and soul—to another, in utmost loyalty, faithfulness in adversity, and devoted trust.  It is time for the world to behold the glory of God in His people! It is time for good fruit to be evident in the House of God, and it is time to prove the power and the truth of the Word of God to the world and in our daily lives! It is time now for the world to witness to glory of God as Israel did in their History:

As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt, I WILL SHOW THEM WONDERS. The nations shall see and be ashamed of all their might; they shall put their hand over their mouth …They shall be afraid of the LORD our God, and shall fear because of You. Who is a God like You, Pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy.”   Micah 7:17 NIV

As Jesus admonished, let us produce fruit in keeping with repentance and let us run with endurance the race set before us, trusting God with fierce determination!  In every sacrifice of worship we offer to God let it be purified and seasoned with the SALT OF TRUST in a God who is MIGHTY TO SAVEFor everyone will be seasoned with fire, and every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt”  (Mark 9:49).

UNSHAKEABLE, UNSTOPPABLE FAITH THAT RECEIVES!

Faith BaczkoWe have arrived in the most significant of years! The year of open doors and answers to long awaited promises!  The year of the Favor of the Lord!  The year where we will see the fulfillment of prayers prayed for many long years.  Prayers to dreams that God has planted as seed in our hearts; Dreams that are God’s dreams He has been waiting with divine patience to see their fulfillment.  Dreams for His sons and His daughters; dreams for cities and nations; dreams to bring relief for many in desperate situations; dreams that are solutions to significant problems the world is now facing; dreams for the great Harvest to come in!

The dilemma some may be facing right is how to step through the Door to fulfillment when the battle gets fierce at the Gate and the temptation is to panic at the sound of the beating hoofs! The enemy is not sitting about idle! He is about to lose a lot of ground and is resisting this move of God to the fullest!  But the Word of the Lord stands firm: “Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says the LORD. “Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?” says your God.” Isaiah 66:9

To possess the promises of God we must fight to stay in the place of unstoppable, unshakeable faith that receives—the faith of Jesus that we see evident in Mary and in Abraham.

MARY – AGREEMENT WITH HEAVEN

MARY AGREED WITH HEAVEN’S PLAN FOR HER LIFE! She said yes when she was told by the angel of the Lord that she would give birth to the Son of God! Her response: “I am the servant of the Lord.  Be it unto me according to your word!”  Sometimes it can be easy to say yes to God in the pregnancy of the moment, when we get caught up in the grand possibilities of something new, exciting and wondrous.  However, the true test of faith comes in seeing the dream through to the finish line, and facing all the trials that come along the way to stop the dream from coming forth!  Trials that you did not expect to encounter…when the temptation is to be offended in God and disappointment sets in!

Mary agreed with God but she also had faith to believe in God’s ability to walk her through the trials that lay ahead as a single pregnant woman in her day. She experienced the wonder of seeing the substance of her faith, the Promised Son of God birthed through the travail of tested faith!

JESUS – ENDURING FAITH FOUNDED ON LOVE

When Jesus put down his carpentry tools, dusted himself off, left home and all he had previously known, to go down to the Jordan River to be baptized by John, it was because he heard His Father’s voice say, “It is time My Son.” When he left, He knew it was the beginning step of a journey that would one day lead Him to a terrible death on the Cross. When Jesus left to go, He was saying yes to the Father, to the plan of redemption of mankind…to become the Savior of the world!

Jesus moved to embrace His destiny with fierce determination to complete His Father’s will! The Father and Son were locked in a passionate mutual agreement of will, love and honor of each other!  When Jesus went down into the waters of the Jordan He was fully embracing His Father’s Will and the full brunt of the Cross.  Jesus placed the full force of His faith in His Father’s Love for Him and the Holy Spirit’s care to carry Him through to the finish line and bring Him out on the other side in Resurrection POWER!

Was Jesus’ faith shaken in the garden over the ordeal He was about to face? It would seem so as he wrestled in fervent prayer in the garden, but His faith was grounded and secure in the knowledge of His Father’s superlative love for Him! Did Jesus ever entertain doubts that the Holy Spirit would rescue Him from death, or wonder if He might be left imprisoned in the grave forever? No, never! Jesus’ trust in the Holy Spirit was securely contained within a relationship born of passionate supernatural Love.  Jesus knew the love of the Father and the Holy Spirit were ferocious, that it would have no rest until He was once again seated on the Throne at the right Hand of His Father!

To what extent will that LOVE go to rescue you! FAITH MUST BE BORN OF THE UNSHAKEABLE KNOWLEDGE OF OUR FATHER’S MAGNIFICENT LOVE FOR US and the Holy Spirit’s intent to bring us into fullness in Resurrection power!

ABRAHAM – BELIEF AGAINST ALL ODDS

Abraham believed God! Abraham never doubted God’s word, nor was he shaken or thrown by the scope and magnitude of the promises! The Bible says that Abraham did not stagger in unbelief at the promises of God.  We are admonished in scripture that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Abraham waited twenty five years to see the fulfillment of the promised son.  ABRAHAM WAITED BECAUSE HE SAW A CITY!  BLIND FAITH IS ACTUALLY FAITH THAT HAS SEEN!  What do you see…a city, a nation, an invention, a book, a business new technologies?

BUYING GOLD!

God admonished the Laodicean lukewarm church, “I counsel you to buy from me Gold tried in the fire!” The gold He was speaking of is tried faith refined and tested in the Fire, sustained through Love!  This is faith purified unto holiness! It is the gold with which dreams are purchased!  To possess this Gold is the evidence of all that is hoped for!  It is the economy of Heaven and is the very substance with which the Father created.  The Father’s own faith in His creative ability brought forth the worlds as we know it!  Dreams come forth based on a time tested relationship of knowing the Father’s love, knowledge of His faithfulness, goodness and integrity!  It is faith based on experience, knowing that the everlasting arms are always beneath us! That we always win!  God is not a man that He should lie.  Has He not said and will He not do right by you!

COSTLY DREAMS

What is now coming forth in the days ahead are the Father’s magnificent dreams placed in the hearts and minds of His children like precious gems. They are very costly dreams, and like Mary the Body is about to give birth!  We have had a small number of forerunners who have gone ahead to set the course, but the earth will now see the saints released and ideas birthed on a large scale!

I believe God has found a chosen generation and a royal priesthood that will serve His purposes for this hour.  A people like Mary and Abraham and Jesus RELEASED TO GO, Blessed by the Father—an overcoming generation whose eyes are fixed and fastened on the eyes of their Lord, fearing no man or beast!  A GENERATION THAT SHOUTS GRACE, GRACE TO ANY OBSTACLE HINDERING OR RISING TO IMPEDE THE ONWARD MARCH TO SET THE HEAD STONE IN ITS PLACE AND COMPLETE THE SUPERLATIVE WORK OF GOD TO ESTABLISH THE RULE OF THE KING OF KINGS ON EARTH.

Are we willing to pay the costly price to birth and walk with God through to the finish line to the fullness of the promise?  Will we continue to believe for the promises in the face of setbacks and troubles, to see it resurrected in the power of the Holy Spirit in fullness.  This is the victory that overcomes, even our faith!

A Tsunami wave of Answered prayer is coming but it is fiercely opposed!  The dream will be birthed by those who will not give in or give up, who know their God and do great exploits!  Who fight the Good fight of Faith!

Abundant Blessings in the Lord!

A TSUNAMI WAVE OF ANSWERED PRAYER!

According to the Hebrew Calendar we entered the year 5774 on Rosh Hashanah, which fell on September 4, 2013 on the Gregorian calendar. In the Hebrew alphabet the dalet is the fourth letter and means ‘door,’ and its numeric value is four. The dalet represents the humility and poverty of spirit that understands that all things, including success, wealth and opportunity in all spheres come from God alone—that without Him we have nothing and are nothing.

Prophetically, many understand 5774 to be the year of the open door. I believe that the OPEN DOOR is both a DOOR OF OPPORTUNITY and a DOOR OF INVITATION, where we are offered the choice to seize the moment to launch out or to stay within the confines of what is safe and known. I believe that this year will be a year of great favor for those who will take the risk to walk through the doors of opportunity God will open for them; those who will have the chutzpa to boldly lay hold of their destiny in faith.

The year of the OPEN DOOR also represents Jesus who is the Door of God’s House; it is an invitation to enter the abode of God, to dwell in the Awesome Presence of the secret place of the Most High, and to abide and rest in the protection He provides (Ps. 91).

However, even as God will open doors for his people this year—both Jewish and Gentile, I believe that first and foremost the revelation of the dalet is speaking prophetically to the Jewish people – as it is always to the ‘Jew first’ (Rom. 1:16). In 5774 God will be opening doors to Israel to step into the Light of His Glorious Love! 5774 is the year God is opening the door to His Dwelling and He is saying to Israel, as He did to John in Revelation 4, ‘Come up here.’

Yes, God is opening the door for Israel, but He is also opening the door into Israel! When I first became a Christian, the first words God spoke to me was that He was sending me to the nation and people of Israel; well, twenty years have passed and God has never released me to go until now—the door has now opened for me to go in February. In 5774 the door will open for many churches, ministries and saints to travel to Israel with divine assignments, some to bless and some to strategically intercede and birth His kairos moment for this land. Israel is about to experience a great awakening this year as GOD SPEAKS, and the Holy Spirit broods and births the WORD OF GOD for nations, for this Land and its people… as it is also ‘Glory to the Jew first’ (Rom. 2:10).

While listening to an anointed message on God’s amazing goodness, there was pregnant moment when I felt as if I had tapped into the very heart of God and got wind of something He was up to. As I saw it I experienced an instant of incredible joy as I became united in that moment to His mind, heart and intentions for something He was about to do. I experienced insight with incredible clarity that He was overflowing with joy in anticipation of a great move Heaven was eagerly preparing for—God was about to release His promises held in reserve over long periods of time for the Body of Christ—ON A VAST SCALE! These promises have been held in trust for saints who had been faithfully waiting and persevering in the trenches, some for a very long time!

The children of Israel, who after being prepared and refined in the wilderness for a long season, finally received the fulfillment of God’s promise; the word was released through Joshua: “Pass through the camp and command the people, saying, ‘Prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days YOU WILL CROSS OVER THIS JORDAN, TO GO IN TO POSSESS THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD IS GIVING YOU TO POSSESS.’ ”

At this opportune moment in history everything was orchestrated to converge in Divine timing as God had prepared an obedient, passionate, overcoming generation who were ready and willing to boldly go in to possess the Promised Land that was their inheritance, and their destiny. This generation was a prepared generation, anointed with the breakthrough anointing of victory! Of this generation it was said, ‘THE SHOUT OF A KING WAS AMONGST THEM! They were a generation possessing divine strength acquired through the battles, having the maturity to hold and occupy the ground He was about to give! I believe God has now found such a generation!

God has not been holding out on us, He has been waiting for the opportune moment—a convergence in time where all parts have come to their fullness at the kairos moment. When Israel was poised to enter the Promised land the enemy rose up to curse them through Balaam to prevent God’s dream from coming forth, but he declared God’s word that there would be NO DIVINATION against Israel and the people of God:

As I sought the Lord for a word that would define 2014 He gave me Psalm 114:

When Israel came out of Egypt, Jacob from a people of foreign tongue,
Judah became God’s sanctuary, Israel his dominion.
The sea looked and fled, the Jordan turned back;
the mountains leaped like rams, the hills like lambs.
Why was it, sea, that you fled? Why, Jordan, did you turn back?
Why, mountains, did you leap like rams, you hills, like lambs?
Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob,
who turned the rock into a pool, the hard rock into springs of water.

Get ready, the wave that is about to land is a TSUNAMI WAVE OF ANSWERED PRAYERS released by a vast army of the angelic host of heaven poised to invade earth. God is asking is your heart prepared. Is your heart right before God? He who is coming will come and will not delay!
