An explosion of exuberant dynamic life within God’s people is awakening us to extreme life supercharging the Christ Body to live beyond anything we have ever known. (John 10:10b) (1 Cor 12:12-27).

A restraining veil that has separated us from the fiery intense exciting life of God is being removed off our hearts and lives. The glory life of God can now begin to flow within His people without restraint or limitation. (2 Cor 3:12-18).

The intensity of the time is altering the focus and desires of the called out “ekklesia” of God. The excitement of true Spirit life energizes and empowers kingdom-minded people to full activity and fruitfulness in every work given to man.

Time will seem to expand as the Spirit energy within us will accomplish more in an hour than we could do before in a day – and more in a day than we could normally do in a month. It may seem like slow movement to us, yet much is being accomplished while the clock seems to almost stand still.

Spirit acceleration is the normal life in the Spirit that is free of hindrances imposed upon us from the cares of this life, the lust of the flesh, pride of life, and self-indulgences of pleasure-seeking that comes from depraved life. (1 John 2:15-17).

Without the stress of what we have thought was natural life, personal production in every endeavor of life will effortlessly increase. Living in kingdom order is the most productive and efficient life available on earth. True prosperity in spirit, soul, and body is the norm in kingdom-style living. All of the earth’s ills can be healed and life on earth restored to the Garden of Eden life on earth through abiding in kingdom order in Christ Jesus.

Breaking Through the Veil of Separation

Through the inputs to the souls of man in this fallen adamic world systems, a veil of darkness has been laid upon the hearts of the people. The veil is from the kingdom of darkness, or more accurately, the principality of darkness ruled by Satan through anti-Christ spirits working in deceived “elite” human leaders posing as light while imposing a veil of darkness upon the minds of the masses of people. (2 Cor 11:13-15).

The veil uses false secular and religious beliefs to blind the minds and hearts of the people to the reality of the one true God and the availability of His kingdom potential now. (2 Cor 4:3-4). The availability of the kingdom life with its unlimited love, power, and wisdom along with its peace, abundance, and prosperity is proffered as either nonexistent or as only possible sometime in the future but not in this life on earth now.

The ground work for breaking through this veil has been progressively built into God’s people. Since the time of the cross, resurrection, ascension, and the Spirit return of Christ in the Holy Spirit, the potential of restoration of the kingdom of God on earth has been and is now fully available. The progressive ground work coming forth is the preparation of a people to fully believe and receive the kingdom of God. God has been preparing a people to carry the glory of the beautiful life of righteousness, peace, and joy of the order of the kingdom of heaven on earth.

Great strides were made over the past few centuries as people began to again receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit establishing the life of Christ in a people on earth. In recent times the miraculous supernatural work of Christ in man by the Holy Spirit has begun blasting holes in the veil that is upon the hearts of mankind.

The FIRE of the LOVE of God is dissolving the veil from the hearts of God’s people. God through the supernatural works of the power of Christ in His people working with holy angels is opening great holes in the veil of deception and darkness that is upon the land.

The enemy is fighting back with all the power he can muster in the hearts and lives of the multitudes of people who are yet deceived and blinded. Great turmoil has come to earth as the veil is being destroyed and more of God’s people are breaking through into the glorious eternal life in the everlasting kingdom of God on earth.

“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom,” Luke 12:32.

Do not become dismayed by the great turmoil and tribulation upon the earth. Do not fear the cataclysmic events upon the earth. Rather than draw back in fear, this is your time and mine to become more alive in the great release of the kingdom of God’s supernatural Spirit life that is being poured out upon all who will turn to Him with their whole heart.

Now is the time to receive the kingdom life of Christ Jesus in us to carry out the final stages of the restoration of kingdom order on earth. Christ Jesus came to earth to purchase the return of Planet Earth, His people, and all that is upon the planet to the kingdom of God.

Awaken and move with the power and the speed of the wind of the Spirit intensifying the fire of God in us to be the extreme people who ride with Him through the great redemption of this world to the kingdom of our God.

Flee the Babylonian kingdom of earthly glamor and clamor that shuts out the reality of kingdom life and order.

The Babylonian system of human dominance and rule is being replaced in the people who turn to God with their whole hearts and have the veil of deception and darkness lifted. Spiritual eyes are opening above the clouds of confusion into the simple but beautiful life of following Christ Jesus as He leads us from within by the Holy Spirit of God.

Much if not most of the stress of running to and fro seeking to be the best and have the best is like running on a tread mill: running as fast as we can as long as we can and getting absolutely nowhere. Families are lost in striving to raise the brightest and most talented children in their group while for the most part ignoring the reality of the love and presence of God in their lives. Striving for the “good life” while missing the God life of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. (Rom 14:17).

While seeking the glory of this life and the acceptance and applause of men rather than becoming one with God, they become one with this fallen world. Instead of bringing forth the kingdom of God to change and rule in this world, they are changed by the fallen world and ruled by it. They become one with this fallen world instead of one with God.

In their busyness of self-seeking, they hardly notice as the veil of deception and darkness falls upon them. The enemy is attempting to destroy them in his all-out war to stop the kingdom of God from ruling in this world.

As the veil is lifted, Babylon is being destroyed.

The lifting of the veil signals the last call for the people of God to COME OUT OF THE BABYLONIAN LIFE.

“And I heard another voice from heaven saying, ‘Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached[b] to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities,’” Revelation 18:4-5).

Read Revelation Chapter 18 and 19 for a clear prophetic figurative language account of the fall of Babylon. Read Chapter 20 and 21 for a clear prophetic figurative account of the New Jerusalem, Bride, ruling city of the kingdom of God coming forth on earth. These Scriptures are coming forth in this season of the History (His-story) of Christ Jesus and Planet Earth.

2. Stewardship and Not Ownership

By Lisa Great

Mark 12:1-12Then he began to speak to them in parables. “A man planted a vineyard, put a fence around it, dug a pit for the wine press, and built a watchtower; then he leased it to tenants and went to another country. When the season came, he sent a slave to the tenants to collect from them his share of the produce of the vineyard. But they seized him, and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. And again, he sent another slave to them; this one they beat over the head and insulted. Then he sent another, and that one they killed. And so, it was with many others; some they beat, and others they killed. He had still one other, a beloved son. Finally, he sent him to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’ But those tenants said to one another, ‘This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’ So, they seized him, killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard. What then will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the tenants and give the vineyard to others. Have you not read this scripture: ‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone this was the Lord’s doing, and it is amazing in our eyes’?” When they realized that he had told this parable against them, they wanted to arrest him, but they feared the crowd. So, they left him and went away” (NRSV).

History has a way of being cyclical, it repeats itself, therefore, it is imperative that we learn from history, in order to not repeat the things in the past that were not effective as it pertained to the advancing of the kingdom of God. As we read the gospels, it is easy to just see them as stories, but they were actually a reconfiguring of ideas, thought patterns and ways of doing life as a spiritual being. If you aren’t careful, you can read the gospels and miss the messages that Jesus was telling them and that He is telling us.

In this parable, Jesus was letting us know that we were given a vineyard (a group of people, family, community), that we were invited to be a steward over a vineyard, but when it came to harvest time, He (the Father/owner) could take from His vineyard whatever He wanted. The challenge was then and is now, that many who have been called to be vineyard stewards, have actually become vineyard owners. In the process of stewardship, the subtle shift to ownership took place. This is understandable, for those who really want to give their best to anything need to have a sense of ownership in that thing. The challenge is, once you crossover into ownership, you now believe the vineyard is yours and the fruit of that vineyard belongs to you.

I believe we are in harvest season right now in the kingdom of God. I believe God is harvesting grapes (people) from His vineyard right now as we speak. I believe, what many see as a harvest of unbelievers coming is correct, but I think there is a harvest happening right now of believers. God, the owner of the vineyard (Psalm 24:1), is coming for His fruit, those who are mature, those who are ripe, those who are prepared to be gathered. Many leaders are wondering why so many people are leaving their churches, I believe this is why. It is harvest time! People are hearing the voice of God calling them out of the religious systems they have been in. Calling them to follow Jesus, not a church leader, calling them to discipleship with Jesus Himself. They are hearing the words of Jesus, “Follow Me!”

Just as in the parable, the workers crossed over to believing they were owners and therefore, could control the vineyard, control the temple and control those who were coming to it. Mark 12:12 says, “When they (the temple leaders) realized that He (Jesus) had told this parable against them…” The temple leaders of that time knew Jesus was speaking about them. This is how we know that leaders are the ones who have subtly shifted from being stewards of people and places to believing they are the owner; the one who decides how things are going to go; when, where and for how long. We say we want to be led by the spirit, but our services are completely scripted. God is harvesting His people out of these systems.

Luke 4:18-19 says, “The spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor, He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” Who are these people? I have heard many times they are unbelievers, outsiders, Gentiles if you will, but Jesus said, “I was sent only to the lost sheep in Israel” (Matthew 15:24). So, is it possible, that Jesus came to preach, release, recover the sight, set free and proclaim favor to those locked in a system that was not producing life? If we look at all the people Jesus encountered in the temple and in the land of Israel, we see the poor, the captives, the blind, and the oppressed are those He set free. I think Luke 4:18-19 is a salvation declaration for the nation that was locked in a religious system.

So, why was He calling them out of the system? What we see in scripture is that Jesus called them out, to reconfigure the way they think, so they could join a movement that would advance the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. He moved them out of the temple and into a kingdom, a movement that would be quoted in the Acts 17:6 to have turned the world upside down. I believe what we are seeing is not people who are weak, rebellious, or unspiritual leaving churches, but rather those who are hearing Jesus say, “Come, follow Me!”. The religious leaders of Jesus’ day did not like Jesus coming to reap His harvest anymore then church leaders like people leaving their church now. History is repeating itself, because we have yet to learn the lesson that it is about stewardship not ownership.
