Body of Christ (Part 1) 07 January 2017
A few months ago I was struggling spiritually to get a breakthrough. It felt like I could not even break through into the courtrooms in heaven. I could feel in the atmosphere that something was different, but I struggled to recognise what it was. The Lord gave me a scripture, but it was only a couple of nights later that the full Revelation came to me.
As I was praying and pressing into my Father, I saw the Body of Christ standing. There was a dark cloud above His Head. On the cloud it was written – hopelessness, despair, tiredness, worthlessness. I saw the cloud growing and becoming darker.
If one part of the body is affected by this cloud, the whole body is going to feel it. If I bumped my toe against the couch, my whole body reacted and I struggle to use my foot hours later effectively. If I have a headache it effect the function of my whole body, so that I cannot do my normal daily work.
This cloud wants to affect the legs and feet of the body. For it is the legs and feet that carries the body. And this cloud wants to make the legs and feet tired and weary, so that the body cannot move forward. This cloud is opposing the destiny of the body. I believe if the enemy is working so hard to stop the body to move forward, it is because we are stepping into a new season. And this new season that we are in is like one we never seen before.
17 “‘As for you, my flock, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will judge between one sheep and another, and between rams and goats. 18 Is it not enough for you to feed on the good pasture? Must you also trample the rest of your pasture with your feet? Is it not enough for you to drink clear water? Must you also muddy the rest with your feet? 19 Must my flock feed on what you have trampled and drink what you have muddied with your feet?
20 “‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says to them: See, I myself will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep. 21 Because you shove with flank and shoulder, butting all the weak sheep with your horns until you have driven them away, 22 I will save my flock, and they will no longer be plundered. I will judge between one sheep and another. 23 I will place over them one Shepherd, my servant David, and he will tend them; he will tend them and be their shepherd. 24 I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David will be prince among them. I the Lord have spoken.
25 “‘I will make a covenant of peace with them and rid the land of savage beasts so that they may live in the wilderness and sleep in the forests in safety. 26 I will make them and the places surrounding my hill a blessing. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing. 27 The trees will yield their fruit and the ground will yield its crops; the people will be secure in their land. They will know that I am the Lord, when I break the bars of their yoke and rescue them from the hands of those who enslaved them. 28 They will no longer be plundered by the nations, nor will wild animals devour them. They will live in safety, and no one will make them afraid. 29 I will provide for them a land renowned for its crops, and they will no longer be victims of famine in the land or bear the scorn of the nations. 30 Then they will know that I, the Lord their God, am with them and that they, the Israelites, are my people, declares the Sovereign Lord. 31 You are my sheep, the sheep of my pasture, and I am your God, declares the Sovereign Lord.’”
This my beloved friends are the season, the hour that we are entering into. Inside the body of Christ there is going to come judgement. The judgement is going to be between the fat sheep - representing religion and lukewarm people, and the lean sheep - represents the remnant. Believe me if I tell you that I believe that anyone who believes in Yeshua (Jesus Christ) and is saved by His name will enter into the heavenly gates. For some people it is enough just to get in heaven, but for the remnant it is not enough. For they want the fullness of Christ to be manifested here on earth. The remnant is not satisfied with just entering in, they want an audience with the King. They want to be in His service and have a servant's heart. They want to be The Watchmen on the wall. They want to proclaim more than the good news of salvation, they actually wants to live it out. In every generation the Lord sets apart a remnant that will go above and beyond for the King. In them there is no compromise. They are the forerunners in the Kingdom if it comes to revelation, knowledge and understanding. They are normally persecuted because they are not bound by religion or tradition. They live more in the spirit and more in the heart of the Father, then with education and world knowledge. Seeking out the truth of YHVH and desire Him more than life.
Those that are stuck in religion or are lukewarm are fed the things of man and this world, and will compromise and will spiritual be effected by the things of this world. But there are a few that did not take that what was being given to them and was hungry for more and wanted to live in truth. There is an outcry in their hearts to feed upon the Lamb, the Bread of Life Himself.
Yeshua is going to guide His sheep and not allow falseness to rule over them anymore. He is going to take them latterly by the hand and show them the way they should go. He will lead them to the wilderness where He is going to make them so depended upon Him that they will not even be able to breathe without Him. Some are going to die in the wilderness. Many are even going to turn back. It is a place of inconvenience. It is a place where you are going to be more uncomfortable than ever before. But from the wilderness they are going to feast upon the Lamb and there they will go out and do as their King commands them. They will go out in peace and will yield fruit in every season.
All of suddenly I saw the body with more detail. The muscles on my legs were in spasm. On the feet there were blisters and open sores. I saw the hands of the body reaching down and massaging the muscles of the legs. The hands were also rubbing the tired feet. They applied the healing balm of Blood on the open sore. The hands were the servants, the prayer warriors and watchmen. As the body started to work together, the dark cloud started to disappear. The body is made out of many parts, living human bodies working together as one. (The stomach of the body represents the evangelists. The liver of the body represents deliverance ministry. The lungs represents the healing ministry. The heart represents the worshippers. The legs represents the prophets and the feet represents the teachers and the preacher’s etc. You may hold more than one part in the body, but even the smallest sell is needed. The Head of the body is the Yeshua Himself.)
We as the body have to work together. But as an individual you have to do your part as well. We are going to start seeing a difference between those who are stuck in religion and are lukewarm people, and those who are on fire for the King.
My dear friends. This is the time you will have to make a chose. For many are called, but few are chosen. Is this world giving you what you want? Or are you looking for more? Do you know what kind of sheep you are? Are you preparing the way of the King or are you causing the body to stumble and fall? What are your desire?
YHVH I ask that You will prepare Your army in this end time. I ask that You will prepare Your sons, the body of Messiah and Yeshua’s bride for this time that You are calling us for. Lord I call forth the things that are not as if there are and I call the watchman on the wall to pray in the things that needs to be prayed in. I thank you Lord that we can work as one body. I bless the body of the Messiah, that we will work in Unity, as one body with One head that is Yeshua, guided by Holy Spirit Himself.
