Day #59: Release Life
Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live … So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone. Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them. Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” (Ezekiel 37:4-9 NKJV)
As a believer, full of the Spirit of God, you become one able to walk amongst dead men’s bones, and prophesying, breathing Life over them. The nature and purpose of Christ Jesus is always to release Life and Spirit. There are many forms of prophecy, but the heart and purpose of the Father is to always result in being raised in the fullness of Life, walking full of the Spirit of God, and entering into and participating in your Destiny given you of the Lord. And how do you personally come to enter into the full Promises of God? It is always the same; seek the Face of Jesus and even wait upon the Lord like Joshua of Old and never leave His Presence.
Joshua is the Old Testament version of Jesus our Lord, and both Joshua and Christ Jesus always lingered back in the Tent of Meetings (Ex. 33:11). Continually spending time in the secret place of the Lord and sitting under His ministering Grace and Counsel. There is nothing greater, in this life, than being one built up and imparted to from Heaven into your life here and now. Right here is your success, right here is your full answer. So just as Joshua, and just as Christ Jesus our Lord, you too can come walk your life on this earth with an entourage of Heaven with you. And with the Anointing of God resting upon you, and the Breath of Life within you, you will enter into the Promises and your Destiny in God and blaze the way for the multitudes.
So when all is well come praise the Name of Jesus, and when all is against you praise and delight in Him and seek His Face just the same. When reclining in comfort, or going out in battle, it is all the same; praise the Name of Jesus and seek Heaven manifest. For from within the secret place, the Life and Breath of God will come upon you and when you speak you release the same. For the Spirit of God will ride upon your words and upon the efforts of your hands.
The recipe is the same; be as Joshua and sit at the feet of Jesus and never leave. Yes, be busy like Martha, organising and preparing things for the daily needs and for the work of the Kingdom of God. But deeply Treasure and value the richness of a heart set upon the Lord, to sit at the feet of Jesus and receive from Him daily just like Mary. For the Lord clearly states, “Mary has chosen better” (Luke 10:42). Then one raised and strengthened by our Resurrected King, imparted to by the Spirit of God, you will say to dead and barren situations, impossible and difficult realities, “come to life and be productive in Jesus Name”. You will speak over the hopeless, the broken, the ruined, and the lost; “I speak and breathe Life upon you, in Jesus Name, and I strip the Enemy bare of power, authority and capacity”. And by the Sword of the Spirit given you in the heart of Praise (Ps. 149:6), the demon is cut down; even the strongman, by the declaration released from your own mouth.
The answer is not just theoretically knowing about God, like the Pharisees, but able to demonstrate His Power as you walk under His Anointing (1 Cor. 2:4, 1 Cor. 4:20). Being able to bring Heaven physically here and at work in your life, and teaching others how they can walk in and do the same. Not according to the confines and limited vision and control of man, but in the fullness of God. Believers no longer living as spiritual orphans, but entering in and operating fully as sons and daughters of the Living God!
The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing (ie; ‘human effort accomplishes nothing’ (NLT), and ‘the flesh is no help at all’ (ESV)). The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life. (John 6:63 NIV)
As you direct your soul unto the Father, just as Joshua, and just as the Son of Man, you shall walk as they and enjoy the Anointing and the Power of God resting upon your life. You will enjoy your interactions with Heaven; the angels, the Spirit of God, the Father, and the Son. The Kingdom of God flowing abundantly in you and through you into your world; and angels ascending and descending upon you for you too are a son of God (John 1:51). And here sitting and enjoying seeing God’s Hand continuously at work, even the Spirit of God raising powerful standards against the work of the Thief.
The Spirit gives Life: so do not despise the Presence of God … but earnestly seek it. Do not despise the Anointing but deeply hunger and seek for it (Matt. 13:44, Luke 11:9-13). Praise is the language of Heaven and therefore, the angels themselves come increasingly and join with you and participate with you in your heart of praise. And the Glory of the Lord will fill the Temple of your soul, just as the Shekinah Glory cloud of old (Acts 2:3, Ex. 29:40, Ex. 40:34, 2 Chr. 7:1-3, 1 Kings 8:11, Ez. 43:1-5). As you walk the streets of your world, and as you speak and interact with your world; Life and Spirit comes forth. And as in a dry and barren place a Spring shall come forth, even right in the midst of the barrenness of demon strongholds.
As one born of God your spirit has been made alive unto Him. And like the Father your spirit abides both in the tent of your flesh as well as simultaneously abiding in the vastness of Heaven. You bridge two worlds, you bridge two realities; with the realms of Heaven becoming more real and active in you than the assumed realities presented in this world. And the Glory of God, of which is in Heaven, also abides in you; you a believer of the Lord Jesus Christ. You have the ability to grow and be developed in and by the Eternal realms of God as you live and walk in this world. With capacity to speak and release God’s Destiny and Purpose unto others. And as you speak the Spirit of God rides upon your words, and angels respond unto task. You have great power in your tongue, and the angels are employed by the words that you, yourself, speak. Your very words ushering in the work of the Spirit.
As your soul walks the Eternal realms of Heaven, the dust of Heaven falls as gold and gems in your life. You are not of the economy of this world, but of Heaven. And as the angels walk about your life, and in the midst of the congregation of believers; Heaven’s ‘dust’ is left in their footsteps. As your soul abides and walks in the vastness of the Heart of the Father, Life comes from you and when you speak: Life and Spirit comes forth.
Come speak Life and Spirit into your finances; and speak Prosperity over the economy of your life. Speak and declare Life over your children and your family; and it will be the Spirit of God that will speak into them showing them the right path and guiding them in all their goings. Come speak and declare Life and Spirit into your world, bind the demon spirit that entangles unto death and firmly cast it into the Abyss. Allow the Terror of the Lord to pursue the demon hordes right back to their source. Call upon the Life and Spirit of God to come in the demon’s place and full of the Spirit of God declare and prophesy Life.
Allow the Terror of the Lord to come rest upon you, for the Glory of the Presence of God is a beautiful and terrible place to behold. As Moses, who reclined in the Glory of God for forty days on Mt. Sinai, speaking face to Face with Him, the rest of the ‘church’ was not permitted to come close; and terrified stood afar and away from the Mountain of the Lord. The Father protected Moses in the ‘cleft’ of His Hand as they reclined and spoke together. And in the same way as the ground shook the mountain before the Lord came to Elijah, God protected him from His own Glory by His own Hand (Ex. 33:22). Learn, therefore, to go into the secret place and the Lord will graciously take you into His Secret Place; in this you shall see the Glory of the Lord, and here you shall abide and His Glory shall rest upon you.
There is a Terror in the Lord that human flesh cannot survive, an intensity of the Glory of God that the unshielded man cannot enter into. It is a place of praise, it is a place of integrity, of purity and holiness; these are formed in you in the Presence of the Lord. There is a Terror and Fear of God that the demon cannot survive but flees and is destroyed. Jesus was known to be one who delighted in the Fear of God, and it was here in this place that He rested and had His abode. As you personally recline, rest, and abide in the Presence of the Lord, the Fear and Terror of God comes upon you and remains. The Terror of the Lord remaining upon you, and you, yourself, delighting in the Fear of the Lord. The Enemy cannot enter this place for the Glory of God rests upon you; even the Light so bright that darkness is utterly destroyed. It is the Terror of the Lord upon you that allows you to go boldly into the dark places of the Enemy and stake full claim for the Kingdom of God.
When Elisha reached the house, there was the boy lying dead on his couch. He went in, shut the door on the two of them and prayed to the Lord. Then he got on the bed and lay on the boy, mouth to mouth, eyes to eyes, hands to hands. As he stretched himself out on him, the boy’s body grew warm. (2 Kings 4:32-34 NKJV)
Just as Elisha breathed life back into this little boy, you have the same breath of Life abiding in you given you of the Spirit of God. So when you pray, the breath of Life within you is released, being breathed out over dead situations. Therefore, breathe life back into your world; just as the Father breathed Life into the nostrils of Adam. Stand in the midst of barrenness that you see and breathe Life and Spirit, in Jesus Name.
A born again believer is unique in all of God’s creation, for he has been made in the Image and Likeness of God Himself (Gen. 1:27); being made united one in the Lord. Regular man is not, for they still remain one made in the image and likeness of fallen man (Gen. 5:3) with Satan on the throne of their lives and still bearing strong influence over them. Their spirit is not alive unto God, nor does their spirit abide in Him. Therefore, as a born again believer gain a new mindset by the renewing of your mind (Rom. 12:2); shifting your thinking unto the Word of God! One born of the Spirit is a trans-dimensional being, just like God Himself, the spirit of you abiding here on earth but also in the wondrous Eternal realms of the very Heart of the Father. Abiding in open communication and dialogue, in impartation and transference with Heaven; receiving from the Father as you turn your soul firmly unto Him.
As you purpose your soul unto the Lord, a vastness is formed in you that reaches deep into the vastness of the Eternal realms of Heaven.
One time the disciples said to Jesus, “send away the people, for we are in a deserted place”, however, Jesus who as the Son of God, never saw it as a desert place, because His economy was not of this earth. Jesus’ Source was not of this planet and nor of His own flesh; for just under His skin, Jesus abided in the vast and Eternal realms of Heaven; and He, in continual transference, was built up and equipped continuously in and by the Father. And just as Jesus, angels will also ascend and descend upon you, and be released to task by your Anointed words. For you too are born and modelled after Him, this being a part of your Destiny of which Christ Jesus has Purposed and made available to each believer, as sons and daughters of the Living God.
So you as well, though an ordinary person, the depths of you is growing and being formed in the vastness of the realms of the Heart of the Father. So here, Jesus didn’t really take note that it was a desert place, and when He spoke He released Spirit and Life and food was multiplied before their very eyes.
Sin has a way about it, and that is for all who bow to it they come under the deceptive grip of the Enemy; robbed and stolen of their Destiny in the Lord. This is Satan’s purpose since the Beginning; to replace God upon a person’s life and seat himself, that is the subtlety of his efforts. Instead of Life there is death, and instead of prosperity there is only fear and brokenness.
Your Destiny in the Lord was written and established in you from before you were knitted in your mother’s womb, written even before the forming of the foundations of the world (Ps. 139:16, Eph. 1:4). God has a rich Destiny and Purpose in Him for you, unique and particular to each one of us to walk in; here in this life and also in the life to come. Become free of the Poverty spirit, for God has not made you a people of poverty. Therefore, truly make God your God and not finances, nor the works of your flesh, for the believer’s economy is from Above. Prophesy Life and Life shall come, prophesy the Spirit of multiplication to come over you and your life and all that you set your hands to.
Become one who is able to say, “go to the river and the first fish you catch open its mouth and there will be a gold coin.”
You are of a different Kingdom, your economy is of a different reality; therefore, step into it. As your soul walks in the Eternal realms of God it prospers, and the Prosperity of God comes and rests upon your life. As you have come and throned Christ Jesus in your life, your spirit is alive unto God. Though you live here on earth, your spirit lives in the Father in Heaven, just as the Father lives in you. And just as the Father, your spirit is multi-dimensional, that is, being able to abide here on earth whilst simultaneously abiding in Heaven. There is your Eternal Destiny in Heaven, yes, and it is far beyond all that you can imagine. But it is also most important to realise that there is your Eternal Destiny that God has purposed in Him for you in this life, that is far beyond all that you can imagine. As your soul is directed unto Heaven, the Lord speaks into your soul and transfers into you from Above; and this only limited to the measure of your own heart’s desire (Mark 4:24).
The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” The Lord shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies! (Psalm 110:1-2 NKJV)
Through the Blood shed for you this invitation has been extended you;, to be seated with His own beloved Son (Rev. 3:21, Eph. 2:6). Seated, bonded, united, and made one in Him; just as the Father is one. The Throne of Jesus being a terrible place for one to approach, but here it is the Place of Rest for each believer who chooses to come as a little child and enter in (Heb. 4:3, Matt. 18:3). And in the vast and Eternal realms of the Heart of the Father, you yourself come to rule in the midst of this life of which you walk. No longer acting nor living according to the vision or confines of a carnal man, but one who is a New Creation in Christ Jesus and seated with Him.
You are only a temporary resident on this earth, with the depths and breadth of you abiding in the vastness of Heaven. Though in appearance just an ordinary man or woman, just as Jesus (Is. 53:2), the depths and width of you abide in the Eternal and vast realms of God as you walk this life.
The Enemy is in a totally defeated position, you have the unfair advantage over him. If a thousand is against you, you need only declare ten thousand is for you.
The courage and exploits that you read about in Scripture may seem far from your vision or capacity right now, but realise this fundamental truth: they were never ever of the strength or capacity of man but fully given of the Lord (Judges 6). Therefore, do not be discouraged: you, yourself, have the same opportunity as they as you seek the Presence of God in the Holy Place. In all things and through all things delighting yourself in a praise filled heart and soul unto the Lord. It will be then His Counsel, His Everlasting Life, and His Anointing that will rest firmly upon you; to the blessing of your world, in Jesus Name.
A heart and attitude of praise and worship proceeds all moves of God. A culture of prayer and fasting brings and releases the Anointing of the Lord. And a heart seeking the Face of God, sitting at His feet, draws and releases the Kingdom come, and God’s Perfect Will being done here in your midst JUST AS IT IS IN HEAVEN! A heart of honour and praise brings the angels of God in your midst and makes way for the Anointed Word of God. All revivals, all moves of God, all breaking of hard ground comes on the back of intercessory prayer and worship. The Hosts of Heaven and the angels of God are drawn to your heart of praise, and just as in the day of Joshua they proceed out and battle for you and prepare the way for the Kingdom of God come. In this the Spirit of God Anoints and raises people up left, right, and centre; the Anointing of God coming upon them and bringing lasting change. Anointing comes upon the preacher’s mouth and the Hand of God sweeps across the land bringing the Salvation of the Lord. This land being the property of the Holy Ghost!
Pray this prayer with me. ‘Praise your Holy Name, bless you Lord. Lord, I see how much you wish to raise people up strong and mighty in the Lord, and how you wish to Anoint your people from on High. Lord, truly not by our own strength, but by your Spirit and your Anointing. Lord, please forgive me for taking on a heavy yolk, for this is not your way. Lord, I seek your Face and delight to sit here at your feet, in the Tent of Meetings, that Heaven may proceed from me to the Glory of God. Lord, I no longer wish to remain as a wild horse but come under the tutorship of my King that I may truly carry your Glory upon me, and behold the splendour of your Person all the days of my life, in Jesus Name!’
