As we watch the enemy gloat in wicked glee over his apparent victory over all that is good, as we watch him use the false flag attack on the Capital building to censor, cancel and completely irradicate our God given rights to FREE SPEECH, we pray like the Psalmist David did, a prayer for God’s help.
Where are you God? Do you see what is happening in this country, in this world? Do you care?
The answer is….God does see and God does care. Every day we see the enemy advance his evil, wicked agenda, and we wonder how in the world could it have gotten this far?
The answer is simple. We need only look in a mirror. This evil didn’t rise to power overnight. I am convinced that if the Church had held the line, had stayed grounded in the truth of God instead of promoting seeker sensitive garbage like “coffee bars, talented rock bands, and catchy tag lines like “Fifty shades of Grace”, our world wouldn’t be in this big of a mess right now. I actually remember going to my Lutheran Church just after September 11th (9/11), and so wanting to hear comforting words of exhortation, words from the Holy Spirit. But you know what? It wasn’t on the Church’s “3 year lectionary”, so they completely skirted the entire issue. There was no move of the Holy Spirit. There were no words of encouragement. They completely ignored these MAJOR world events. In-fact, over the years, the Church has completely ignored the fact that we are IN THE LAST DAYS. Was this prophesied? Yes.
2 Thessalonians 2:3: No one is to deceive you in any way! For it will not come unless the apostasy (falling away from the truth) comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction
2 Timothy 4:3: For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.
With the church weakened, sickened, and floundering just to stay afloat, practically shut down all-together because of the planned pandemic, the enemy’s wicked schemes have advanced with lightning speed.
But God has a GREAT, GREAT PLAN which can actually be found in the patterns of Zechariah 4. None of what we’re seeing today has taken GOD ALMIGHTY by surprise! In-fact, the prophetic Word tells us that God is using these wicked schemes to separate the sheep from the goats and the goats from the wolves, and that He is soon to fulfill all of His promises. What promises are those? The ones found in Zechariah 4, Haggai, 2, and Isaiah 60 and 61.
In the natural, Zechariah was writing about the rebuilding of the second Temple. At this time, Judah had been exiled in Babylon for 70 years. When 70 years were completed, Persia conquered Babylon to become the world’s “superpower”. Cyrus King of Persia then issued a decree to allow Israel to leave Babylonian Captivity and return to Jerusalem to reuild the Temple and the city that King Nebuchadnezzar had burned to the ground some 70 years earlier.
The rebuilding of the Temple came at a time of Spiritual awakening and a great Exodus.
This was Israel’s second Exodus.
- The first Exodus took place when Israel left Captivity in Egypt to go to the Promised Land c1446 BC. Moses and Aaron were God’s chosen instruments (king and priest).
- The second Exodus was when Judah (Israel) left Captivity in Babylon to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple c538BC. Zerubbabel and Joshua were God’s chosen instruments (king and priest)
The second exodus was much smaller than the first because this time only a remnant left Babylon and returned to Jerusalem. Many Israelites chose to remain captive in Babylon.
We are about to see a third Great Exodus. As noted above, Spiritual Babylon has entered the Church and led her into apostasy and captivity; however, God is leading His Remnant, a third great Exodus out of Spiritual Babylon.
Rev. 18: 2 And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.3: For all the nations have fallen because of the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of sexual immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich from the excessive wealth of her luxury.
4: ”I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive any of her plagues;
God no longer dwells in a Temple made with human hands. God’s people ARE His Temple. His Church is His Temple, but His Church has become askew and needs some “cleanin up“! Like it was in the days of Zerubbabel, God is going to STRENGTHEN what was GOOD WHILE REBUILDING the “ruined cities” using the Plumb bob to straighten what was crooked and realign what had gone off course. He will place this final generation as the Capstone to His HOLY Temple, calling us out of darkness and into His Glorious Light!
1 Peter 2:9: But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
Day in and day out we are being inundated with lies, lies, and more lies. They are being force-fed to us by the Corrupt media, Big Tech, Big Pharma. These lies have even infiltrated what is left of the Church that desires to be the “cool kid on the block”. These lies are promoted as truth that we “must believe” if we want to “function as civil members of modern society”. This is the message we hear day in and day out!
We are about to witness a mass exodus of people out of the system of the world and into the system of the Kingdom of Heaven.
Revelation 3: “To the angel of the church in Sardis write:
He who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars, says this: ‘I know your deeds, that you have a name that you are alive, and yet you are dead. 2 Be constantly alert, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God. 3 So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent.
God is confirming this through signs and wonders, such as angelic encounters, Rhema words from the Lord, and end-time dreams and visions (Joel 2/Acts 2). God has been restoring the prophetic office to the Church in preparation for this Great Move of God.
- Pastor Steven Shelley of New Hope Revival ministeries in Alabama was visited by an angel who announced “The plumb line is now in the hand of Zerubbabel“
- Jeff Jansen of Global Fire Miistries had a visitation from Jesus who said “The plumb line is now in the hand of Zerubbabel“.
- Sparrowcloud 9 has been shown the rebuilding of the Spiritual Temple in Zechariah 4 and the great end-time harvest and outpouring of the Holy Spirit in her many dreams and visions from the Lord.
You might be asking, “Who is Zerubbabel”? Like Moses led the first exodus out of Egypt, Zerubbabel led the second exodus out of Babylon. Zerubbabel was given the title of the Governor of Judah by King Cyrus. Zerubbabel is not only in the line of King David, but he is also in the geneology of Jesus. His grandfather Jeconiah, former king of Judah (Israel), was taken captive as a boy by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, so Zerubbabel was of royal blood and was the next in line to be king of Judah. In Zechariah 4, Zerubbabel is considered a type or shadow of Messiah, Jesus Christ.
Following the completion of the 70th year in Babylon, God raised up King Cyrus of Persia who issued a decree that would allow for Zerubbabel and Joshua, the high priest of Israel, to lead a remnant of Jews back to Jerusalem to rebuild the burned out Temple and Jerusalem, and to RESTORE worship and prayer. During Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign in 2016, a man named Lance Wallnau prophesied that Trump was like Cyrus from Isaiah 45, and that he would become the 45th President of the United States. This prophecy came to pass when Donald Trump won the Presidency in 2016, against all odds. Included in these prophetic patterns, Israel COMPLETED her 70th year in the land, a time when Donald Trump announced to the world that JERUSALEM would be RESTORED (FORMALLY RECOGNIZED) as the ETERNAL CAPITAL OF ISRAEL.
Beginning in 1999, God began to tell Tracy Eckert that He was going to rebuild His Temple. When she heard Lance Wallnau’s prophecy about Donald Trump, she said “I knew that we had entered the timing of the Lord to rebuild the Spiritual Temple and get ready to fulfill all that He has been speaking for almost twenty years”. Interestingly, Sparrowcloud 9 was recently shown in a dream from the Lord that twenty years is the perfect waiting period. She has also been waiting 20 years for the fulfillment of all of God’s Glorious promises!
Through these prophetic voices, God has been communicating to us what He is about to release and how to be prepared to host His Coming Glory.
God is about to AWAKEN His people!
Zechariah 4:1 Then the angel who had been speaking with me returned and woke me, like a person who is awakened from his sleep.
This is the TRUE MEANING of being “WOKE“. God is awakening His Sleeping remnant from SLEEP, preparing us for His Coming Glory.
Every Biblical exodus involved a departing from slavery into freedom. Today, the Church has been taken captive by a RELIGION of CULTURAL CHRISTIANITY and its TRADITIONS. It is a form of godliness that denies the POWER of GOD, functioning through earthly patterns. Psychology has replaced the move of the Holy Spirit. Many, many churches no longer recognize God’s miracles, preferring to “explain them away” as some kind of act of nature. Many do not believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God. They deny the deity of Jesus and only make vague references to “the Cross”. In-fact, there are many modern Churches in which there is not even a Cross to be found! God Forbid these seeker sensitive churches EVER mention the blood of Christ or our sin nature and the need to repent! That would be “bad for business”. For the most part, the modern Church is preaching a social gospel that mirrors the world’s agenda and not the TRUE GOSPEL!
As the Church has lost its true nature and identity as sons and daughters of LIGHT and POWER, the DARKNESS has swept into our culture. The shaking that we are currently experiencing with Covid 19 and all of the political upheaval is only going to worsen, but it is this very thing that will cause the TRUE CHURCH to AWAKEN and discover her TRUE IDENTITY! This shaking is already causing a separation between the people of the culture and the people of God. You can see it now on Social Media. It is becoming more and more obvious to anyone who has eyes to see.
This shaking will take God’s remnant FROM confusion (Babylon) TO real worship and being led by the Spirit of truth.
Zerubbabel led the radical, passionate remnant to lay the foundation of the Temple. But, two years after the foundation was laid, the Babylonians who had remained in the land after the Persian conquest, began to frustrate the building and discourage the people as they were working. The work stopped and did not resume for another 14 years. This is a picture of the past 1800 years of Church History.
Following the pattern of Zerubbabel and the second Temple, at Pentecost, the foundation of the human Temple was laid when Jesus poured out His spirit on pentecost 2000 years ago. The people gathered as a family, with Christ in them as their common union (Communion). They began to build. Jesus, the Master Builder laid the foundation of His Temple on the apostles and prophets with Himself as its cornerstone.
Mark 14:58: “We heard Him say, ‘I will destroy this temple that was made by hands, and in three days I will build another, made without hands.’”
Ephesians 2:19: So then you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.
Like the building of the Temple in Zerubbabel’s day, the Church experienced resistance through outside persecution, internal doctrinal divisions, a Jezebel spirit and a spirit of luke-warmness. Although Christianity continued to spread throughout the centuries, the power and zeal that the apostles walked in, the plumb line of the Word of the Lord and the New Covenant priesthood that Jesus and the apostles proclaimed became increasingly rare. Man began institutionalizing Christianity and establishing a RELIGION that took the place of the presence and power of God!
Jesus did not go to the Cross to create a religion that holds a form of godliness but denies its power! He died to build a new, living human Temple that would house His Spirit, a new race, a HOLY priesthoood. When we say “priest”, we’re not talking about Catholic Church “priests”, we’re talking about the people of God. If you are a Christ-one (Christian), Hungry for the Living God, then you are a priest!
There have been many revivals over the past 500 years as some leaders began to recognize the poor spiritual condition of the Church. This began with Martin Luther’s reformation, continued with the Pentecostal revival, the Latter rain healing revival, and the recent prophetic revival. All of these revivals have been preparation for a HUNGRY remnant to receive the finishing work of Christ in the final generation of the Church age, the CAPSTONE GENERATION.
Zechariah 4:7: ‘What are you, you great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring out the top stone (capstone) with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’”
God is teaching this Capstone generation how to operate in His Kingdom, in the powers of the age to come. The former rains that occurred at Pentecost are but a small portion of what we can expect in this Capstone generation. As God makes autumn the most beautiful, vibrant and glorious season, occurring just prior to the long, dark winter, so God will make the Capstone generation, the final generation before Jesus’ return, the most glorious, vibrant and beautiful just prior to the Rapture (catching away) and the long, dark tribulation.
Haggai 2: 6 For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; 7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations (JESUS CHRIST) shall come: and I will fill this house (TEMPLE) with glory, saith the Lord of hosts.
8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts. 9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.
God used Zerubbabel and Joshua to rebuild His second Temple. This is the model that God is using to rebuild His human Temple made without hands. God used the offices of priest and king to lead the exodus out of babylon and to rebuild his Temple. God’s establishment of the second temple, with its kingly and priestly dimensions, serves as the centerpiece of His Governmental system for releasing Heaven on earth.
This model of God’s government that He uses to lead His children out of bondage isn’t new, as God also used this same model in the first Exodus out of Egypt with Moses (“king”) and Aaron (“priest”). God is going to use this same model in the third exodus, but there has been a change in the “priesthood” as God’s people are not functioning under the order of the Old Testament Levitical priesthood, but are now functioning under the New Testament priestly order of Melchizedek, like their High Priest and King, Jesus Christ.
Now let’s go more deeply into Zechariah 4 for additional revelation from the Holy Spirit that was given to Tracy Eckert and others who have the prophetic gift. Ms. Eckert wrote about these Holy Spirit revelations in her book “God’s End-Time Temple“, which is the primary source of information for this post. This is an excellent book that we highly recommend if you want additional details and information!
Zechariah 4: 2 And he said to me, “What do you see?” And I said, “I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps on it with seven spouts belonging to each of the lamps which are on the top of it; 3 also two olive branches by it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on its left side.”
The angel awakened Zechariah from sleep (as God is awakening His Capstone Generation from Spiritual slumber) to show him a vision of three things.
- A lampstand – represents the Church or living Temple giving light to the world, the 7 lamps with 7 spouts represent the 7 Spirits of God.
- A bowl on top of the lampstand that contains OIL (symbolic of Holy Spirit) that continually feeds the church or living Temple.
- Two olive branches on either side of the bowl. I have always thought that the two olive branches represent the Two Witnesses that will show up in these last days (Rev. 11); however, Tracy has another thought on the possible identity of the two olive trees. She believes these two Olive branches represent the TWO BRANCHES of God’s Government necessary to rebuild God’s Temple – Priest and King, shore it up according to the Plumbline, and make it READY to receive our HIGH PRIEST AND KING JESUS upon HIS RETURN!
Zechariah 4:7 Then I said to the angel who was speaking with me, saying, “What are these, my lord?” 5 So the angel who was speaking with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my lord.” 6 Then he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of armies.
7 ‘What are you, you great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring out the top stone (CAPSTONE) with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’”
Isaiah 40:3: The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: 5 And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
The new Temple will be completed by the Power of the Holy Spirit, not by human power or wisdom. The foundation was laid 2000 years ago with Jesus Christ as the Corner Stone and the Apostles/prophets as the foundation. WE ARE THE CAPSTONE, or finishing stone generation. Although there is much opposition right now with the cancelling of conservative voices, and there is even opposition within the Religious structure of the current lifeless church, no obstacle will hinder the completion and ministry of the new Temple because God is pouring into it a double portion of Grace. In this newly rebuilt, remodeled Temple, God is going to make a straight highway in the desert, ready for His return. He will use His Plumbline to straighten what is crooked, humble those who have exalted themselves while exalting the humble, and make the rough, rocky places smooth.
Zechariah 4: 11: Then I said to him, “What are these two olive branches on the right of the lampstand and on its left?” 12 And I responded the second time and said to him, “What are the two olive branches which are beside the two golden pipes, which empty the golden oil from themselves?” 13 So he answered me, saying, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my lord.” 14 Then he said, “These are the two anointed ones, who are standing by the Lord of the whole earth.”
I have always been taught that the two olive branches, the two anointed ones who are standing by the Lord of the earth in Zechariah 4, are the two witnesses who will be showing up in Jerusalem some time in the near future (probably Enoch and Elijah – Rev. 11). I think this is one CORRECT interpretation; however, Ms. Eckert poses another CORRECT interpretation, and is perhaps one of the reasons why Zechariah asked the question TWICE.
In this context, the two olive branches represent the two “branches” of God’s Government), anointed by the Holy Spirit. These are the people of the Capstone generation who stand in the presence of God and whose ministry as “priest and king” fuels the function of the New Temple.
Ms. Eckert actually saw this very thing in a prophetic dream in 2008. She saw two olive trees and written on the left tree was PRIEST and on the right tree was KING. These were the roles of Joshua and Zerubbabel, the two anointed ones who were to rebuild the Temple, as priest and king.
The New Testament teaches us about a new ORDER of priesthood, one after the order of Melchizedek.
In the days of Abraham, Melchizedek was the King of Salem (Righteousness), AND he was a priest to whom Abraham gave a tithe (10 percent) of his belongings. It is believed that Melchizedek was the pre-incarnate Christ. This is the only time that we see the offices of King and Priest combined in a single individual in the Old Testament (Tanakh). Jesus Christ is our High Priest, forever, after the order of Melchizedek, a priestly order that combines the roles of priest and king. We must understand that this is a completely NEW order of PRIESTHOOD.
Zechariah 6: 12 Then say to him, ‘The Lord of armies says this: “Behold, there is a Man whose name is Branch (messianic/jesus christ), for He will branch out from where He is; and He will build the temple of the Lord. 13 Yes, it is He who will build the temple of the Lord, and He who will bear the majesty and sit and rule on His throne. So He will be a priest on His throne, and the counsel of peace will be between the two offices (king and priest).
Jesus, as the firstborn of many, is the High Priest, the Anointed One. He poured out the golden oil of His Holy Spirit to dwell in us and make us into many “anointed ones” who would function as kings and priests in His Living temple.
Hebrews 7:17: “You (JESUS) are a priest forever
According to the order of Melchizedek.”
Rev. 1:6: And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
The apostles originally functioned as king-priests (after the order of Melchizedek), governed by the Holy Spirit. But over time religion and rules took over. The Church became a “business” where rules were enforced but hearts were not transformed. Much of today’s Church has become “seeker sensitive” and is honestly hard to distinguish from the world.
Zechariah’s vision shows us that God’s original design for the Church will return with the capstone, the end-time generation. People will learn not to be governed by outwardly rules, as slaves and earthly wisdom, but internally as sons and daughters by the Spirit of the Lord.
Romans 8:14: For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons and daughters of God
How do we prepare to receive this double portion anointing that is coming at the end of the age? Zerubbabel could only build the Temple properly with the plumb line in his hands. The plumb line is what properly levels the foundation and aligns the building accordingly. The plumb line symbolizes the truth of God’s Word that comes from Heaven to earth. This is the Kingly role. The Kingly role that Zechariah saw are those who release what is in Heaven to earth. This truth can only be obtained by God’s people functioning as priests.
Priestly order of Melchizedek
- The priests HEAR and SEE
- The kings DECLARE and ACT
The kings are aligned by declaring and doing only what they see and hear from Heaven. This is exactly how Jesus, our King-Priest lived. He is the Forerunner and Model of the Kingly priesthood He came to establish. Jesus said…
John 8:28: So Jesus said, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I AM, and I do nothing on My own, but I say these things as the Father instructed Me. 29 And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.”
The plumbline fell into Zerubbabel’s hands and the seven eyes, who are the seven spirits of God, REJOICED. Why? Because now that the plumb line was released, the Temple could be rebuilt properly! Remember how we said that several modern day prophets were told by the Lord that the plumbline had been released? Although things are getting quite dicey here on earth, Heaven is REJOICING because they know that the Temple is about to be REBUILT! In the verses below, when you read the word “Zerubbabel”, think JESUS CHRIST!
Zechariah 4:8: Also the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 9 “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house, and his hands will finish it. Then you will know that the Lord of armies has sent me to you. 10 For who has shown contempt for the day of small things? But these seven will rejoice when they see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel—they are the eyes of the Lord roaming throughout the earth.”
The foundation and capstone are symbolic of two ages of time, the two outpourings of the Holy Spirit (early and latter rains). Christ, the CHIEF CORNERSTONE, laid the foundation of the New Covenant Temple made of living stones, you and me, through GRACE on the day of Pentecost. He laid the foundation through the apostles and prophets who had the plumb line of His Word. They heard from Heaven and built accordingly, but shortly after the building began, false teachers and false prophets brought frustration, confusion, accusation, and discouragement. The Church stopped building according to the plumb line, the word of Truth and of the Holy Spirit, and began incorprating human traditions and teachings. This made the Church almost powerless for nearly 2000 years.
But God is changing this in the Capstone, or final generation. God is going to unleash His Holy Spirit on this generation of sons and daughters, the likes of which we have never seen before. There is a remnant that has found the ancient ways of God and of the ORIGINAL BUILDERS and is beginning to tap into the plumb line from Heaven to earth within them. God’s written and Rhema Word is that plumbline, but we must remember that God’s Word is living and active, sharper than any two edged sword, capable of cutting between bone and marrow, discerning the thoughts of the heart.
This is the FINISHING WORK of JESUS CHRIST, through HIS “CHRIST-men and women”, taking the Kingdom of God with them wherever they go.
How can we be a part of this Great Move of God? First, we must CONSIDER OUR WAYS. Are we working to build OUR OWN HOUSES, or God’s house? Are we building our own lives according to earthly wisdom, according to our own ways with selfish ambition? Only when we CONSIDER OUR WAYS and return to building according to God’s ways, to HEAVENLY WISDOM, can we bear the good fruits of righteousness and peace. Only when we “die to self”, forsake our own ways and receive God’s ways, are we ready to be FILLED with the GLORY OF GOD. If we want to be part of this “Great move of God”, we need to spend time in prayer, in God’s Word and repentance, preparing our hearts and minds to be not only hearers of the Word, but doers of the Word. We need to line our lives up with the Plumbline, the Word of God empowered by the Holy Spirit!
James 3: 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peace-loving, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial, free of hypocrisy. 18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
- The function of the priestly branch of God’s government is to fill up the bowls in Heaven through worship, prayer and giving thanks to God for who He is, what He is doing and what He has done. The priests offer up thanksgiving and praise and enter into His presence and use their eyes and ears to see and hear what is in Heaven. Prayer, and God’s written and Rhema Words, along with the prophetic gifts of the Holy Spirit, will enable us to function in this capacity.
- The function of the kingly branch of God’s government is to use our MOUTHS to release prophecy, intercession, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom with power and healing. As kings, we speak and release what we see and hear in our roles as priests. Priestly prayers are poured out through kingly declarations. This is about being a good steward of what God is doing in Heaven with works of faith.
God’s Capstone generation needs to function as BOTH priests and kings. One expression without the other will not be the governmental authority that God designed.
There is a direct correlation between prayer and the measure of God’s presence within us.
“Small Christ inside, small life outside. Big Christ inside, big life outside”.
God is training us to function as king-priests, and the glory of God is about to be seen on those who consider their ways to walk in the ways of the Lord, the ancient paths where the good way is.
The prophet Haggai prophesied that the Glory of the Lord will SHINE BRIGHTLY in this NEW TEMPLE.
“Haggai 2: 7 I will shake all the nations; and the desired of all nations (Jesus Christ) will come with the wealth of all nations, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord of armies. 8 ‘The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine,’ declares the Lord of armies.
9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.
A word from the Lord from Mr. Buford Dowell, the father of the latter rain healing revival, had this to say before his death:
“God is going to take every move of God that we have heard of in history, and even what we witnessed in Bible days and put it all together in one big HOLY GHOST BOMB and DROP IT ON EARTH. The nations will reel with the power of God like they have never seen and prime time news will cover it. God is going to bring the ministry of the apostles and prophets to the forefront. They will have the mind of God, the heart of God, and the voice of God, and when they speak their words will be the words of God. They won’t just speak about the future, they will create realities with God. Whatever they say, god will create it because it will be His mind His Will, and His Word. It won’t be about them, it will be about HIM”– Buford Dowell
tfj: I will admit that a couple of years ago, I heard an audible word from the Lord….”ABIDE”. (means live, dwell, act in accordance with)
John 15:7: If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
Ms. Tracy Eckert had a vision of the Lord’s finger pointing to Luke 4:18 and she heard Holy Spirit say “It was Luke 4:18, but now Isaiah 61”. Jesus first came to clean up His priests which He proclaimed in Luke 4:18, so they can be a part of this Great move of God and function in the fullness of the Melchizedek priesthood as kings and priests which He demonstrated throughout His ministry. The rest of Isaiah 61, in verses 3-11, is the result of His cleanup operation, His effective, strong, prosperous, and holy priesthood. All of this is being done in preparation for the Rapture and the return of Jesus Christ. This is NOT about “dominion theology” where the Church thinks it will replace the kingship of Jesus Chrst. No, Jesus IS returning to earth! This is about making the Temple READY for His Return.
Luke 4:18: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
2 To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
3 To grant those who mourn in Zion,
Giving them a garland instead of ashes,
The oil of gladness instead of mourning,
The cloak of praise instead of a disheartened spirit.
So they will be called oaks of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.
4 Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins,
They will raise up the former devastations;
And they will repair the ruined cities,
The desolations of many generations.
5 Strangers will stand and pasture your flocks,
And foreigners will be your farmers and your vinedressers.
6 But you will be called the priests of the Lord;
You will be spoken of as ministers of our God.
You will eat the wealth of nations,
And you will boast in their riches.
7 Instead of your shame you will have a double portion,
And instead of humiliation they will shout for joy over their portion.
Therefore they will possess a double portion in their land,
Everlasting joy will be theirs.
8 For I, the Lord, love justice,
I hate robbery in the burnt offering;
And I will faithfully give them their reward,
And make an everlasting covenant with them.
9 Then their offspring will be known among the nations,
And their descendants in the midst of the peoples.
All who see them will recognize them
Because they are the offspring whom the Lord has blessed.
10 I will rejoice greatly in the Lord,
My soul will be joyful in my God;
For He has clothed me with garments of salvation,
He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness,
As a groom puts on a turban,
And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the earth produces its sprouts,
And as a garden causes the things sown in it to spring up,
So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise
To spring up before all the nations.
This priesthood will rebuild the ancient ruins, raise up former desolations, and repair ruined cities from generations of captivity. This is symbolic of the Church being restored to a fully functioning king/priest Capstone on God’s Temple as God originally intended. God is making a bride ready for her groom.
Ephesians 5:27: that He (Jesus) might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.
As we see this world spinning out of control, and we see evil plastered on every news channel, spewing out of the mouths of demonically inspired politicians, let us remember that God is completely in control. God’s end-time plans are GLORIOUS.
Hallelujah, Praise the Lord for what HE has done, what HE is doing, and what HE is about to do!
