What is the Agenda of the Body of Christ in the Last Days?

What exactly is a Kingdom Assembly in the Body of Christ?

What is the Agenda of the Assembly?

What is the prophetic agenda of the Ecclessia in the last days?

How do we direct our vision, energy, and resources to doing God’s will for the last generations before the return of Jesus?

Listen to this 3 part teaching as we give a Scriptural framework for the Apostolic and Prophetic AGENDA of Jesus Christ the Chief Cornerstone and Head of the Congregation.

The King’s Agenda is not buying & selling, farming, politics, branding, real estate, speed dating, or entertainment. It’s not coming up with our own creative conceits and alternative forms of ministry.

In this 3 part series we go in depth and very PRACTICAL on Scriptural Prophecies showing that God’s Expressed Purpose and the Agenda of the Messiah for His Bride in the Last Days is:

1. Releasing the Spirit of Elijah by Destroying Idolatry
2. Restoring House to House Evangelism & Discipleship in the order of Jesus Christ
3. Rebuilding the Tabernacle of David
4. Preaching and Teaching the Gospel to Every Ethnicity
5. Awakening the Scattered Tribes of Israel

Where’s YOUR Ground Zero in these Last Days?

Where’s YOUR Ground Zero in these Last Days?

Don’t get it twisted or confused! The things that are going on right here in America are every bit as serious as what’s going on with Israel, the Middle East, Africa, and China.

Whether you look at Matthew 24, the book of Revelations, or Paul’s warnings in his epistles… The spiritual deception and false prophets among US are just as important and as serious to Jesus as the wars & rumors of wars, persecution and murder of Christians, and famines& earthquakes.

For instance, in Matthew 24, when Jesus was teaching about the last days… He mentioned 3 categories of drama that would be going on:

SPIRITUAL DRAMA– deception, false prophets, iniquity, cold love
POLITICAL DRAMA – wars & rumors of wars, persecution
NATURE DRAMA – earthquakes, famine, pestilence, etc

Notice that all these different types of drama are important in His teaching… and they all are intermingled as one. If scripture is taken seriously, then the false prophets and spiritual wolves of the Western church are just as serious to God as the persecuted church, famines, pestilences & ebola viruses, wars & rumors of wars that are going on in Middle East, Africa, Asia… No, the Western Church doesn’t have it easy! We actually might have the most difficult battle of all.

People keep saying “war & persecution might come to the US soon…” not realizing that spiritually, our war is already here!

God sees all, and if we seek Him to get His perspective and His heart… We will not avoid the battles right in front of us while we pray and intercede for Believers in other nations. No cop outs in the Kingdom! We are all in this together! We have to fight the battles in front of us WHILE we pray for and support the Body of Christ Worldwide.

What to Do:
1. PRAY for and STAND AGAINST false prophets, false apostles, and false teachers right here in America. Find and Support a pure group of believers with a focus on Jesus and a passion for holiness. Don’t tolerate mixture, dead men’s bones, covetousness or hypocrisy.
2. PRAY for persecuted believers in other nations and stand with them in the Spirit. Support ministries that go and help them.
3. PRAY for the peace of Jerusalem and the Salvation of Israel. This is the city and nation that Jesus Christ will rule and bless the earth from.
4. If you don’t do step #1, don’t waste your time with #2 or #3.

Watch, and Pray, and CHANGE

If you are watching and praying, and paying attention to the news… especially to Israel (God’s prophetic calender)… then you know that God is ACCELERATING a lot of things spiritually. Make sure you watch and pray on a deeper level. Recommit your life to Jesus Christ.

But also, make sure that you are on the GOOD SIDE of the immutable laws of sowing and reaping. Change what you actually DO, amend your ways, and bring God the FRUITS of repentance. TODAY!

Daniel 4
27 Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquility.

Luke 9
8 And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.
9 And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, for so much as he also is a son of Abraham.

Rick Renner Sounds the Alarm on Facebook

Its the last days, people have supplanted the truth for easy popularity based branding and marketing… and now they are filled with delusion and apostasy. I’ve seen this happen with my own two eyes in my generation (in a holy hip hop movement that was called to walk in the Spirit of Elijah, now it’s filled with the spirit of Jezebel and Babylon) and its growing fast. Its not just in music it has spread unchecked to evangelism, churches, families… A little bit of leaven, leavens the whole lump.

If we don’t stand now when will we stand?

Yesterday the Spirit of God moved on Rick Renner to sound these same alarms to the Body of Christ.

Rick Renner Sounds the Alarm on Facebook:

RickRenner_Thought1

HERE’S A THOUGHT: Pure preaching of doctrine has been so replaced by motivating, uplifting messages that the majority of people in the pews are ignorant of the most elementary aspects of New Testament doctrine. Often those who occupy the pulpits, while masterful communicators and rate highly among motivational messages, they themselves are not educated in basic bible principles or no longer preach it because it isn‚Äôt as popular as other types of messages. As a result, a drift from the bible continues unabated and doctrinal vacuum is being created in the church that is filled with exceptional business ideas, motivational messages, but not Word that the Holy Spirit is bound to confirm with signs and wonders. Some of what is preached is helpful, but the same help could be purchased in a book by a psychological guru. It isn‚Äôt the Bible ‚Äď and when everything is said and done, only the Bible has the power to permanently transform. — RICK RENNER

A few hours later he goes on to describe the Judgement of Jesus that always takes place when the Church is corrupted:

RickRenner_Thought2

ANOTHER THOUGHT: Two thousands years of Church history have proven that the Church always comes forth purer than gold and mightier in the Spirit if it stands by the side of truth. But where the truth is negotiated, it results in spiritual corruption and powerlessness. When this occurs it affects those within the church and makes the church vulnerable to attacks that it would normally survive. Christ offers the choice to repent or to suffer the consequences of divine judgment. Repentance is God‚Äôs first choice, but if they will not heed and obey Christ‚Äôs orders, He will not hesitate to begin the process of extricating the diseased members and thereby restore the church to a healthy condition so that it may continue to be the light in darkness He designed for it to be. — RICK RENNER

At what point do you realize that if you have not recognized and separated from the deception – that you are probably a part of it?

Psalm 94

14 For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.

15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.

16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?

 

Its encouraging to see fearless voices for Truth rising up that actually know the Scriptures and the Power of God. His Mercy and Truth endures to every generation.‪#‎7000thatwillnotbow‬ ‪#‎killingidols‬

Corruption, Violence, Righteousness, Wisdom

Lesson on Genesis 6
Mass Corruption leads to Mass violence. Mass violence leads to Gods judgement.
Righteous men that avoid corruption and violence get blessed with the Spirit of wisdom to create an ark for their families.

Are you avoiding the corruption in this wicked generation? What spiritual “ark” is the Lord giving you wisdom to build?

If You are Living your Best Life Now you are going to Hell ‚Äď Bringing Biblical Swords – Week Of Swords And Axes Day #2

If You are Living your Best Life Now you are going to Hell ‚Äď Week Of Swords And Axes Day #2

If you are living your best life now you are going to hell. You might even go to church but be a false convert. Real Christ followers find spiritual identity in his death and rise when He comes back.

Colossians 3 1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear , then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

What About the Abundant Life?

Some people would say John 10:10… doesn’t Jesus come that we might have life, and more abundant?

John. 10:10 is surrounded in the context of scriptures that say Jesus is the door, the shepherd, the way, etc. In that same context He talks about the world rejecting Him, so they reject His true followers too. He says that the servants won‚Äôt be greater than their master. He also said this right before He went to the “Cross.” So it‚Äôs obvious that He wasn‚Äôt talking about the type of best life that is only positive, non-confrontational, and filled with earthly success and prestige in the eyes of man.

The things that men respect the most, God actually hates the most. You could be the richest, most influential, powerful person in the eyes of men, and everything you stand for would be an abomination to God.

Luke 16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

What’s the difference between a true believer and a false convert? A true believers heart is in Col 3:1-4 because they are actually following Jesus, and holiness, and taking the persecution and suffering that comes with it.

Find Your Identity in Jesus Christ, His message, His Life, His Cross, His resurrection! Do and say the hard things that it takes to follow Him.

False converts have no root, therefore when their earthly ‘best life’ is not happening, tribulation causes them to fall away from the faith. You can see this in the parable of the sower as well as in Matthew 24.

Mark 4 16¬†And¬†these¬†are¬†they¬†likewise¬†which are¬†sown¬†on¬†stony¬†ground;¬†who,¬†when¬†they have¬†heard¬†the¬†word,¬†immediately¬†receive¬†it¬†with¬†gladness;¬†17¬†And¬†have¬†no¬†root¬†in¬†themselves,and¬†so¬†endure¬†but for a¬†time:¬†afterward,¬†when¬†affliction¬†or¬†persecution¬†ariseth¬†for¬†the word’s¬†sake, immediately¬†they are¬†offended¬†.¬†18¬†And¬†these¬†are¬†they which¬†are¬†sown¬†among¬†thorns;¬†such¬†as hear¬†the¬†word,¬†19¬†And¬†the¬†cares¬†of¬†this¬†world,¬†and¬†the¬†deceitfulness¬†of¬†riches,¬†and¬†the¬†lusts¬†ofother¬†things¬†entering¬†in,¬†choke¬†the¬†word,¬†and¬†it¬†becometh¬†unfruitful.

Tribulation and persecution causes the true believer to go deeper in God and bear even more fruit. Do you know how many former ‘on fire’ false converts are no longer even walking with God? Do you know how many people go to church for 2 hours on Sunday, but worship demons through alcoholism, entertainment, and idolatry the rest of the week? Get ready for more, because as the last days continue, persecution will increase and false converts will fall away by the thousands. You can call them ‚Äėfalse converts‚Äô, or ‚Äėbelievers who fall away from the faith‚Äô; but the results are the same.

Mark 24:10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,13 but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

The True Messenger     

That‚Äôs why the true messenger doesn‚Äôt just ‘sow seed’ He also ‘breaks up the fallow ground’ by preaching repentance and spiritual violence. He also rips out the thorns of the deceitfulness of riches and the care of the world, and lust for other things. He tears down, destroys, uproots, and throws down (Jeremiah 1:10). The role of the false prophet is to skip those hard steps, but then step in as a ‘visionary leader’ to ‘build and plant’ with only positive messages so that everyone, including false converts can live their best life ‘now.’

Jeremiah 4 3 For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.

Yeah I feel you! Don‚Äôt you hate those ‚ÄúProsperity‚ÄĚ preachers?

NO I don’t. Prosperity is obviously in the bible in 3 John 2. I wish above all things that you would prosper and be in health. Some people may think I’m taking sides on an issue, but we don’t take sides – we take swords. These are God’s swords, not mine.

The Importance of Bringing Biblical Swords

The dumbest and most counterproductive thing you can do in the Kingdom of God is to try to correct a scripture. And it‚Äôs even dumber when you try to correct a biblical message, and then take your identity from a dead man‚Äôs bones like ‚ÄúJohn Calvin,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúJohn Wesley‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúJonathan Edwards‚ÄĚ etc‚Ķ

‚ÄúOooh, I hate that Word of Faith stuff‚Ķ‚ÄĚ

What are you?

‚ÄúI‚Äôm Methodist.‚ÄĚ

Huh? Word of Faith is in Romans 10. Reformed is in the dictionary. Where is Luther? He‚Äôs in the grave. Don‚Äôt get me wrong, I have plenty of respect for Calvin, Luther, Seymour, Ravenhill, Hagin, etc. It‚Äôs beneficial to know Christian history, and I‚Äôm not trying to ‚Äúdog‚ÄĚ people in those organizations. Trust me I‚Äôve read so much on great teachers and revivalists of the past that did great things with God. But it‚Äôs really counterproductive to try to correct scripture with non-scripture. Dead Men, no matter how great they were, are in the grave. Jesus is alive, and His Word is alive.

If you want to bring correction, there is plenty of Biblical language that can be used to bring correction. You could talk about covetousness, Babylon business, wolves in sheep’s clothing, the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, the Judas Kiss, Balaam’s error, the doctrine of Jezebel; a bunch of stuff is in there. While you are quoting dead men you could be getting more revelation from the Scriptures, where the Dead Man Rose Up from the Grave.

We have entire chapters of teaching and supernatural revelation on all this stuff in Killing Idols for REVIVAL… but real quick – let’s bring out a Biblical example for correction.

The Judas Role

‚ÄúBut don‚Äôt you think some people are called to preach hard stuff and repentance, and some people are called to make a lot of money, and only preach positive stuff. That‚Äôs my role in the Body of Christ.‚ÄĚ

Well first of all, Repentance and Spiritual Violence is the ground floor of the Kingdom of God. Not only did Jesus Christ get baptized by John the Baptist, ‚Äúto fulfill all righteousness‚ÄĚ, (which represented total agreement and submission to his message)‚Ķ He also immediately went into the wilderness for 40 days of fasting (imitating John the Baptist)‚Ķ then He came back and preached the same message that John the Baptist preached ‚Äď not by coincidence. I talk more about this in ‚ÄúJesus Christ Ministry Techniques.‚ÄĚ Jesus took the next steps of teaching multitudes, healing, and casting out demons, and doing miracles. But he started on the ground floor of spiritual violence and preaching repentance.

The whole idea that this represents is bad. There are so many false converts and false prophet ministries who think they are better than a true messenger because they have more money and are more positive. They think that’s their role Рbut really they are playing the role of Judas (who was in charge of Jesus’s money and claimed to want to give to the poor too). When crunch time came, Judas was on the other team, doing what he thought was right in his own mind instead of obedience to suffering with Christ.

This has really sad results. Just in the past few years so many people have fallen away from the faith… even those who still go to church. But the good news is that the harvest is plentiful! Some pastors will even tell you that many of their members aren’t saved. So there is much opportunity to teach people about the Kingdom of God. It’s time for a clear message of specific repentance!

This is the Week of Swords and Axes here at SoSpression blog. Why? God is fighting with big swords, pruning His people with small swords, and taking Axes to the poison filled roots of every wicked tree in His Kingdom.

Returning a Pure Language | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 31 –

Returning A Pure Language

8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent. 10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants, even the daughter of my dispersed , shall bring mine offering.

Zephaniah 3

I just love this scripture… I remember the first time I heard about it when I was first learning about the Tabernacle of David and doctrine on corporate unified prayer. Then recently I learned even more about it with The Call.

The context is the last days when the Lord Jesus Christ is coming to rule. There are several layers of interpretation to both of these scriptures.

This speaks of the day when the Lord comes back in judgement upon all nations. He will gather them all to judge them.

Then He will return to the people a pure language, so that everyone can pray on one accord, with one consent, shoulder to shoulder. This shows the importance of unity in prayer to God. Calling upon the name of the LORD is prayer. Serving Him is worship. Jesus Christ wants unity of all people in prayer and in worship.

This is also the reversal of what God did at the Tower of Babel. Notice He said that He would return to the people a pure language. In Genesis 11 God confused all of the languages of the people so that they could be split up. They wanted to build a tower to reach heaven, or access the supernatural, without God. God confused them so they would not have unity and become one in purpose. Then they split up and became separate nations because they could no longer understand each other.

God is going to “return” that pure language to the people, after He judges all the nations.

One way we¬†can preview this prophesy and¬†have unity in prayer is by praying in the Spirit. No matter what country you are from, or what language you speak, speaking in tongues sounds similar! In Acts they spoke in tongues, and people from every nation heard them in their own language. The same thing happened at Azuza Street in the early 1900’s. God is returning a pure language to His people!

From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia,¬†His¬†suppliants, even the dispersed ones shall bring His offering. Suppliants mean worshippers.¬†God is bringing Africans to be His¬†worshippers. People beyond Ethiopia, and those dispersed abroad, the whole African “diaspora” (dispersed). They will bring an offering to the true God.

We encourage those among the African diaspora to fulfill this prophecy even now. Begin to lead your community in public worship. Bring the true God, (Yahweh and His son Yeshua) an offering. Lead the nations in worship and in unified prayer with one consent, with a pure language.

Worshippers should be undefiled and pure in their language. Don’t be afraid to sing the scriptures and interpret the scriptures with your songs. Reach to heaven and find His pure language for your songs and your prayers.

Make your way to Detroit on 11-11-11 for The Call. Pray with us. Join people all over Detroit that are fasting and praying in preparation for God to do something BIG in our city, nation, and world… NOW. Yes, NOW.

Apostasy is Divorce | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 34 –

Apostasy – The Roots of Divorce in the Church

God said let no man separate what God put together. God is witness with us and our wives, because of the covenant promises we make before Him. God hates divorce.

14 Yet ye say , Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously : yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. 15 And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth. 16 For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away : for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously Malachi 2 

So why is divorce so common in the church? I learned something yesterday that blew my mind. Just as we learned about Jezebel, and how adultery and fornication is spiritual, as well as natural. “First the Natural, then the Spiritual. (1 Corinthians 15)” Well look at the definitionof apostasy.

Apostasia: a falling away, defection, apostasy.

“The Greek word Apostosia comes from the root word
Apostasion meaning “divorce.”¬† Those who
fall into apostasy are divorced from God.”

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed , the son of perdition; 2 Thessalonians 2

So “falling away” from God¬†(apostasy) and¬†“putting away” (divorce) are closely related.¬†¬†So now we have an insight into why there is so much divorce in the Church. Because¬†some of us¬†have fallen away from God. The natural reflects the spiritual.

The mercy of the Lord endures forever, so believe me I’m not trying to condemn anyone who has ever had a divorce. I’m just trying to hear what God is saying and make a spiritual connection that will give us wisdom on the decisions we make. Could the root of divorce in the Church be false doctrine in the Church, and a falling away from God? If I’m contemplating divorce, is there false doctrine in my life that has caused me to fall away from God first? Is the rate of divorce in the Church evidence that we are in the middle of the great falling away already? If my spiritual leader is divorcing his wife, has he divorced God already¬†too? Should I follow someone who has divorced God? Hmm… lets turn our wheels and keep our eyes open. Let’s keep our hearts married to God, then our marriages will be better and stronger for it.

Shot out to my wife Shereena! I love you –¬†divorce was never and will never be an option:-) Because we love Jesus first!

Let’s turn our hearts back to God!

We will be seeking to achieve the great repentance that is necessary to turn our city and nation around at DaHOP on Friday nights. Join us. Daniel turned a nation repenting and praying all by himself! So if 3 of you come and join us on Fridays leading up to The Call and join us at The Call in TRUE REPENTANCE…. What could happen in our nation?

Make your way to Detroit on 11-11-11 for The Call. Pray with us. Join people all over Detroit that are fasting and praying in preparation for God to do something BIG in our city, nation, and world… NOW. Yes, NOW.
