Click Harvest for Let the Real Church Arise song
I was traveling during the last days of the election. This morning I received an email from our overseer (Bishop Thomas) in Kenya. They had been praying for our elections and made the observation that our current president does not seem to fear the Lord.
I wanted to share with you my email response to him as in the middle of it the anointing of the Lord came upon me and the Lord gave me insight into these days.
It is time for the real Church to arise. These times were made for us! Which "us" are we talking about? Men and women of Christ who are filled with courage because of His great love they cast out all fear. Men and women of Christ who are passionate about His presence and our Father's will being accomplished on earth as it is in heaven. These are the ones who will fulfill what James the apostle spoke of in Acts 15:16-17 (Amos 9:11). These are the ones of whom it is said "a people come great and strong like of whom has never been... a fire devours before them and behind them a flame burns" (Joel 2:2-3). These are ones who says "do not rejoice over me my enemy for though I have fallen, I shall arise..." (Micah 7:8). These are the ones who experience Daniel 7:21-22.
"I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, 22 until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.
Therefore I am not discouraged. I am a soldier in the army of the Lord. I will not break rank nor will I allow those whom I walk in covenant with to break rank, flee nor retreat. We will not draw back. It is time to regroup, adapt and overcome and fulfill our heavenly commission!
Tim's Response to Bishop Thomas
You are correct, this man does not fear The Lord.
1 Samuel 8:7-9
And the Lord said to Samuel, “ Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. 8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt, even to this day —with which they have forsaken Me and served other gods —so they are doing to you also. 9 Now therefore, heed their voice. However, you shall solemnly forewarn them, and show them the behavior of the king who will reign over them.”
The choice the people made in my nation rejects our Lord and we will suffer the consequences of that choice (see Isaiah 30-33). However, if we put the restoration of David's tabernacle in context (IE Amos 8 & 9 leading up to Amos 9:11) then we see that it was during the worst and darkest times that the. Tabernacle of David was restored (24/7 prayer, praise & worship). This is the key of David. That tabernacle is in spiritual Zion.
The Gentiles Bless Zion
1 Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. 2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. 3 The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. 4 “ Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at your side. 5 Then you shall see and become radiant,
And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you.......
While I am disappointed (not surprised) at what has occurred in my nation I am greatly encouraged in The Lord. These days we made for men and women of courage in The Lord. Now let the real church arise to shine forth the light in darkness showing forth the love of God, His righteousness, justice, mercy and power even as the apostate church comes forth as well.
Be bold and strengthen your people in The Lord. Be strong in The Lord and in the power of His might.
