Precision rather than strength
In a church you can test how the fire of God burns. If I visit your church and ask people to pray, I will immediately feel how you breathe. If the prayer is quenched, people don’t give their emotions to God – they are tied and bound, waiting for the prayer to end (you can hear these thoughts), then it is clear that the Spirit is not released in this community. The pastor speaks something for the head, but the heart is not fed by the Spirit.
A spiritual church is a Spirit-filled community, a Spirit-filled family. Therefore, there must be emotions – all strength, understanding and might must be given to God; love Him with all strength and understanding.
Therefore, through prayer, one feels how pure the breath is, whether it is hoarse, whether the heartbeat is arrhythmic, and so on. So keep praying by the Spirit in your church! So that your prayer is as free as breath. Deep breath is the Spirit of God that is in the people.
When you strike a fire, you make a spark, but until it flares up, everything is useless. Likewise, many of us “sparkle” in prayer, but there is no fire. They just sparkle. The spark keeps hitting – until something that should burn flares up. Our souls are melting. And until the soul flares up – there was no prayer. Those were words. You can “sparkle” – keep speaking intensively, but until the soul flares up with love and passion – there is no fire! Therefore, blaze with the Spirit! So that all your people “flare up” with the spirit of fire, and not “spark”.
If we lose the fire – as many do today – speak smart thoughts and others agree. Heaven doesn’t need it! Heaven doesn’t admire our wisdom and clever words. This is all – emptiness, these are “embers”.
We need to prophesy and pray with the Spirit of the Living God, which is given to us in our hearts as a gift, so that we don’t invent a prayer – because we don’t know what we should pray for as we ought, but speaking with our spirit – we tell secrets to God. That’s why you need to pray in the Spirit and blaze.
Pray in new tongs. Don’t pray in the old ones. Receive the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It is important not only to pray in new tongs, but to prophesy in new tongs. Prophetic prayer. If you are not receiving interpretation in prayer, it is important to pray for interpretation in order to bring the gift to its logical conclusion. Because gifts not brought to completion do not bear fruit for the mind. They work, the spirit prays, but the mind doesn’t receive a reward – it has no understanding. It is very important to get a logical conclusion.
We all need to be zealous for spiritual gifts, so that the Lord leads our churches, and not the human thinking of the pastor. Because the human thoughts that we listen to in the pulpit are of no interest to anyone, they don’t empower people with strength, they don’t empower people with spiritual dimension of the power of God, they don’t empower them with ability.
When Christ entered into us by the Spirit of God, He brought us the ability to do the works of God on this earth. Therefore, we don’t need the preaching of the pastor – his mind or his experience – we need the thought of God, we need the Words of God – then the people are up built, this is the reason why in some churches there is no power and no spiritual gifts. And others are full of spiritual gifts. Therefore, I transited into the service of the Spirit and I am learning this even more so that I can serve the people with the Spirit, as now, and tell you spiritual truth, not human truth.
“I saw a large sea shell from the depths of the ocean. It was shown in section: there was an axis, a base, and around – all twisted in this axis.
I saw a man of God who spoke to the people, the church, and he showed and explained by example how the prophetic word works. He began to speak inside this shell, but no words could be heard, it was like the breath of a man of God. And inside the shell, the breath swirled into whirlwinds.
Inside the shell were red blotches – like blood mixed with fire. This breath swirled in this shell and accelerated five or more times, and then in other ways, through these whirlwinds, the breath left the shell, it was already like a trumpet call.
This trumpet call, if you listen closely to it, you could hear different dialects in it. But these dialects spoke about one thing.
And then I saw Jeff put his hand on the shoulder of the man of God in a friendly manner, he was smiling, standing by.
Then I saw millions of spirits forming a cloud. At first I thought it was a cloud, but it turned out to be the spirits of people. It was possible to distinguish different faces – I remember exactly the faces of our prisoners and different Awakeners. They also laid their hands on the man of God, it was like at the same time, and separately.
Then I heard – from everywhere a Voice sounded: “Behold, I give you power: what you untie will be unbound; what you heal will be healed.” And there were some important words said to the man of God that I couldn’t remember. The man of God stood smiling.
What we are now speaking and communicating is in this dream dimension. We pray with authority for certain things and experience that it is all going into heaven.
Jeff is already in eternity. But we have a testimony about him: in a dream Bob Jones came to us at a young age – and it was Jeff. The people of God are being slandered a lot. But let us look at the Man who was “poured over” with the dirtiest mud – it was Jesus. If you take all the measures of rotten words – all of them were upon Jesus.
What is happening in the church right now is what the Lord said: ““And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days. “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood and fire and pillars of smoke. 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, as the Lord has said, among the remnant whom the Lord calls.” (Joel 2:28-32)
“A strong stream of water flowed from the Eastern Gate, it looked like lava that erupted from a volcano. This strong flow of water brought healing to the earth and cleared it of all debris. There were those who put up barriers for this flow, but no one and nothing could stop this flow. The direction and strength of this flow was unpredictable. This stream seemed to know its own direction.”
This is what we experience in prayer – when God takes your vessel and throws it into other spheres and other worlds, and if you are open and you accelerate, then you can do it easily. Because they appear from one side and go to the other, they come from above, they come out from below. This is the incredible Universe of God, you walk in freedom not only to obey the voice, but you walk in the incredible ability of God to be everywhere at the same time.
Sometimes I see in the spirit at a distance, for hundreds of kilometers, what is happening in the place. This is an ability in the Spirit to be transported through the air. Our brethren testified of this. Ivan Petrovich said: “I lift up in my spirit, brothers, and I see some of your churches and bless them and bless them!” He flies and blesses.
This ability – there is nothing special in it, as we understand it in an earthly way. It is normal when you are in the freedom of the Holy Spirit – subdued to Him, and your spirit reaches the ability to instantly respond, your spirit is quick to obey, quick to hear. Instant obedience – and you are no longer a person burdened with illnesses, emotions, experience, you are a gift.
Therefore, this flow is unpredictable. The direction of this strong current was unpredictable. He seemed to know his own direction.
About the measures of God.
“Then there was given to me a measuring rod like a staff. And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months.” (Revelation 11:1-2).
Apostle John, while on the island of Patmos, said that he was given a measuring rod. This rod was like a staff. Power – to have, power – to determine the measure. A staff, symbolizing royal power, and a rod, which is only for measuring. They are joined together today. Today is not the time of strength, but precision. You can do a lot and wave your hands, but there is no sense. But an accurate hit will give you victory.
Precision instead of strength.
This rod, which was supposed to measure had the power of a rod. It was given to the Apostle.
The Apostolic gift is a tool that was given to him as a gift in order to determine through the truth the real condition.
It was necessary to measure the temple of God, the altar and the people who worshiped – worshipers. Three points. The outer court did not interest God. Don’t measure the outer court, exclude it! The crowd of the undevoted will not be considered.
It has been given to the Gentiles – they will tread the holy city – it looks like they came to worship, but God calls it – they came to tread. They trample the outer court with their feet and shout “Hallelujah!” But God calls it – “treading”. They didn’t attack the temple, but they tread.
Today God is measuring the temple, the altar, and the worshipers. Measure, think, what is the state of your temple? What are you doing with your temple? God measures it. And even the Word that is now being released, it will work in you – you will see it – because the wave that is coming carries power in itself. If you listen to this Word, then after that you will be responsible for how you fulfill it.
Altar. What is the condition of your altar? Measure it. Angels measure, God’s being measures, Apostles measure, what condition it is in. Is there a fresh, pure, daily sacrifice on it? God watches all this when He counts those whom He calls the people of the sanctuary, the people of the inner court, whom He counts.
This is the revealed Word of God. I’m explaining this Word because it’s impossible to understand this Word unless the Spirit reveals it.
The worshipers in it could be both counted and measured. Worshipers in the sanctuary are counted with God, not those who tread the outer courts.
A rod like a staff is judgments and correct assessment. What is this place in the temple of God. What is your altar? Draw it! Only don’t fantasize – draw the truth, because one of the main criteria for prayer is not only faith, but the truth of God in the heart of the faithful.
The Lord says, “Why are you trampling My courts? Why do you say: “Lord, Lord!, – and your heart is far away from Me?!”
What kind of worshipper are you? Draw it yourself. Draw your temple, draw your altar, and draw yourself. And check everything with the staff! The man of God with a measuring rod, which is a staff, will check it.
It is quite easy to define things by how you spend your free time. Some people “kill” it – come from work and relax, and others fill it with eternal meaning.
And it speaks of whether you are developing or you are withering, whether you are getting old, decrepit, or you are blooming.
Why did the Lord say to some of God’s people who are already aged, “Tell this young man!” And to others: “… Tell the old man…” – although he was still very young? Because if you don’t gather, you scatter.
There are God’s measures, and there are – human – these are elbows, steps, spans. And today I want to share about the measure of God.
“‘Therefore thus says the Lord: “I am returning to Jerusalem with mercy; My house shall be built in it,” says the Lord of hosts, “And a surveyor’s line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem.” “Again proclaim, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts: “My cities shall again spread out through prosperity; the Lord will again comfort Zion, and will again choose Jerusalem.”
Then I raised my eyes and looked, and there were four horns. And I said to the angel who talked with me, “What are these?” So he answered me, “These are the horns that have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.” Then the Lord showed me four craftsmen. And I said, “What are these coming to do?” So he said, “These are the horns that scattered Judah, so that no one could lift up his head; but the craftsmen are coming to terrify them, to cast out the horns of the nations that lifted up their horn against the land of Judah to scatter it.” (Zechariah 1:16-21).
The Lord will choose Jerusalem again. See, God has to re-arrange.
“Then I raised my eyes and looked, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand. So I said, “Where are you going?” And he said to me, “To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its width and what is its length.” And there was the angel who talked with me, going out; and another angel was coming out to meet him, who said to him, “Run, speak to this young man, saying: ‘Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls, because of the multitude of men and livestock in it. For I,’ says the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.’
“Up, up! Flee from the land of the north,” says the Lord; “for I have spread you abroad like the four winds of heaven,” says the Lord. “Up, Zion! Escape, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon.”
For thus says the Lord of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye. For surely I will shake My hand against them, and they shall become spoil for their servants. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me.” (Zechariah 2:1-8).
You see – the rearrangement of the Angels. One is hastening the other.
The Lord tells to say to the young man, but isn’t Zechariah a prophet?” And the Lord says “young man”, since he receives such a Word.
“For thus says the Lord of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye. For surely I will shake My hand against them, and they shall become spoil for their servants. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me. “Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion! For behold, I am coming and I will dwell in your midst,” says the Lord. “Many nations shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and they shall become My people. And I will dwell in your midst. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me to you. And the Lord will take possession of Judah as His inheritance in the Holy Land, and will again choose Jerusalem. Be silent, all flesh, before the Lord, for He is aroused from His holy habitation!” (Zechariah 2:8-13).
God stretches His measuring line through the cities. He has His ethnic boundaries. After He scattered them and divided them into nations, languages and peoples, tribes, they will stand before Him, they will rise in God’s destiny.
Everything will shake until God’s order is established. Because all nations will be shaken. So He is shaking them until the Son of God is exalted above all nations.
He stretches out the measuring line to build His house, which will be the center of everything. God will give good to His judged, they will again overflow with good, after the upheavals. Do not be afraid! Fear God! He is your fear! You can’t hide from Him. Where are you going from the Lord? You won’t make it.
The horns that came out, scattered God’s people. Wicked rulers scatter people, cities, houses, churches.
And then the four come, which scatter those horns.
Those are the Apostolic Ministries, they’re rising up today. They are craftsmen, workers! Much work to be done! Today is the time to work. These are Apostolic horns – the craftsmen, workers! Today is the time to work! This is not the time to sit at home, on the Internet – today is the time of labor and work!
Because today the Apostolic ministries, which are rising in strength, will take over the baton, they will bear the dimension of the advanced, they are working Apostles, not cathedral ones.
They are not teachers in the departments who write, know, speak and speak again, but their teaching doesn’t work. Working Apostolic movements will rise up. Not talking, but working. I note that the workers do not talk, but do things.
These Apostolic horns terrified the enemy because they are a threat to them. They threw down the horns of the nations with their dimension of the spirit of power. This is a working rod, similar to a staff. These are the measures of the Lord in the anointing of the truth of God.
They throw down these horns that are rising against.
What did they do? They shifted God from the heart to the “mouth”. But what will happen? – Working movements will rise. They will rise with measures. They have their own measures.
Today there is a change of Angelic forces. Changes of ministries. Hurry! Speed up! Even in the Angelic world there is a reset of speeds.
God is speaking to young men today. Who is the young man? – One who continues to grow, not standing still. God will become a wall of fire for them – for the people who are righteous before Him.
God is scattering the nations from Babylon. He brings His own out of Babylon, but He also has His prophets stay there for His holy purposes, to be the leaven, to expose and crush false prophets. There are many false prophets. They tell a lot of lies, prophesy things that will never return, things that don’t work. They left the Cross of Christ, abandoned preaching the Crucified and keep telling tails about Herod named Christ.
But God will fight for His saints! Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion! This is the condition of the church, which she must preserve.
Therefore, we took more loads, and every day our song is poured out. It doesn’t require power – it requires love! Love God again so that He again chooses for Himself – you!
God will fight and defend His saints – those who love Him with all their love and all their hearts. The Lord is building His house!
The Lord is coming! Remember this! Last words: “Maranatha! Come, Lord!” This is the end of the whole Bible. This is what we should abide in. A state of expectation, incredible love, dedication to anticipation of the Bridegroom.
Where do you long for Him to return?! Where is the Bride that is worthy of Him? Maybe she is beaten, maybe with torn clothes, but there is only one thing in her: “Come!”
This season again Angel Gabriel appeared and announced that the Lord was coming soon and would not delay. This is a very serious word. Brothers and sisters, we need to get serious about our faith. Seriously reevaluate and measure your faith.
Apostolic movement is a working movement, not a talking one. Today the church has to rise up in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, in the gift of God. Today she must take the measuring line, like a rod, and measure the temple, the altar, and the worshippers.
Check your personal life: will Christ take you when He comes to earth? Will He approve of you? Are you doing more works than before when you believed? Hurry up!
And the Angel said, “Come quickly!” That is why, today, spirituality comes to the fore, and not the gifts of the soul. Only those who have not abandoned their cross – with these people I want to be joined and give birth, build and up raise, and serve them – the people of the cross of Christ! I’m not interested in your gifts if there is no cross on your back!
May the Lord bless everyone, and exalt His Bride and wake us all, and cleanse us from all abomination and lies, so that we walk in straight paths and stop lying, and live straight in the righteousness of God, according to the truth of God!
