“DIVINE ORDER, DIVINE ORDER, DIVINE ORDER”.
“This is the time for alignment and re-structuring in DIVINE ORDER by the Spirit of the Lord.”
We are in a time of preparation and fine-tuning by the Holy Spirit for the assignments that God has for us in 2010. It is a time of waiting on the Lord,
in intimate fellowship, in order to know Him and to know His ways and His plans for the New Year by receiving the new sound to order our way
through the confusion of the earth realm.
To know His heart is to cultivate friendship with Him, coming in union with His will and His purposes by being transformed into His image, His
character in total abandonment to Him, our offerings being consumed by the fire of His Love.
The Lord has planned great advance of the Kingdom in this coming year, but it will not be with our power or might, but by the Spirit of the Lord, in His
Divine Order. Those who will walk out His strategies, according to Divine Order, will walk in supernatural fruitfulness and manifestation of His
glory. His Kingdom will be established by and in His Divine Order! Halleluyah!
Dream with Instruction
Recently I had a dream where I saw the Lord putting things in different categories, re-arranging it into order. Then and angel delivered a “scroll” with
clear writing: “This is the time for re-arranging, re-structuring and alignment in DIVINE ORDER by the Spirit of the Lord.”
I fell asleep again and then I heard the words over and over, “DIVINE ORDER, DIVINE ORDER, DIVINE ORDER”.
Divine Order implies the rule of the King of the heavenly Kingdom, according to His Kingly decrees, everything brought in subjection to Him, under
His governmental reign and rule, according to His Word in the power of the Holy Spirit.
The scriptures where “order” is mentioned most, is where God gave “orders” regarding the “order” of the temple. This also speaks symbolically of
putting things in divine order in every area of our lives, namely in our spirit, soul and body.
Order and alignment also brings the picture of a troop, aligned by the Commander, alert and responsive to His orders. Let us make sure we are
divinely aligned with Kingdom connections, connected by the King Himself.
Divine order also implies that things need to follow in a set order, according to the King’s instructions and time table, in other words the what, how,
when and with whom of every endeavor. As we seek His face to know His will, we will see His hand directing, arranging, and ordering our lives as
we go. Our highway will be formed before us through His present living Word, ordering our steps in victory! This is Kingdom living with no sweat on
our garments and suggests deep humility and dependence on the Holy Spirit’s guidance in close intimate friendship with the King.
Let us humbly ask the Lord to shine the light on any area in our lives that is out of alignment with His Kingdom rule and reign. Then simply bring it
under His Lordship in full surrender.
The word “order” comes from `arak aw-rak' (Strongs: 6186) a primitive root; to set in a row, i.e. arrange, put in order (in a very wide variety of
applications): --put (set) (the battle, self) in array, compare, direct, equal, esteem, estimate, expert (in war), furnish, join (battle), ordain, (lay, put,
reckon up, set) (in) order, prepare, tax, value
Let us take each of these verbs and ask the Lord to arrange, put in order, etc each and every area in our souls that need to come into Divine Order
for His glory. (Listen to Prayer for DIVINE ORDER on FREE MP3 on our web site).
Recently, in a vision in the night, I saw the Lord taking a pair of tweezers and pulling out fine strands of “growths” from my soul area, that were
intertwined in my thoughts, will and emotions. Then He said, “Now I am extracting all the roots of self. Let Me finish the work of cleansing in you as
you prepare yourself for My purification.”
As I was praying into it, the Lord showed me that this is a time of cleansing for those who will come willingly on the operating table of the Holy Spirit
to remove every trace and strand of the flesh, every subtle deception, fleshly attitude or motive, everything carnal, as well as every subtle area of
control which we have not completely surrendered to the Lord. Sometimes fine strands of our own will and ideas get interwoven with His, and we
end up with mixture. This is why we need the pruning and purification. Everything has to come under His supreme Lordship in Divine Order.
II Cor. 7:1 “Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting
holiness in the fear of God.”
Tearing down of the thrones in our souls
II Cor. 10:3-6 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty
through God to the pulling down of strong holds); Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of
God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your
obedience is fulfilled.”
There is much to be done in the Kingdom in the coming days, but we will not be walking in the power of the Holy Spirit where there is mixture with
flesh. Therefore, let us ask the Holy Spirit to shine His light on the strongholds that have been built up in our souls for places of defense and
control. We have to relinquish our rights, our fears and negative attitudes, which have become defense towers for the self to reign; then surrender it
to the control of the Holy Spirit. Oftentimes we become so familiar with certain control modes that we do not even realize that we are behaving
carnally while we defend ourselves in self-righteousness, giving other people the blame for our behavior. These areas are now up for cleansing to
be flooded with the light of God’s glory, so that the enemy will not have any foothold in us to trip us up. Of course our carnality always shows up in
relationships, especially with those nearest to us, so let us tear down the strongholds of self-exaltation by the power of the Holy Spirit and walk in
the character and anointing of Christ.
(Also see the article on our web site: “The Issue of Control”)
1 Pet. 5:5-7 “Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility:
for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt
you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
Fear is one of the biggest strongholds in the minds of men. The Lord wants us to trust Him, fully persuaded that His Word is true and that He is
faithful. This is the time to cast out every trace of fear and break down those strongholds that have caused stress and anxiety and by faith enter into
His Rest, which is part of the Divine Order of the Kingdom of God. Halleluyah!
Enlargement comes through the Cross
I was meditating on Isaiah 54:2-4 “Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen
thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and
make the desolate cities to be inhabited.”
The Lord was highlighting the “strengthening of the stakes”. I was reminded that the stakes are to be driven deep into hard, solid ground so that
they will stay put to carry the “pull” of the lengthened cords and the stretched curtains. The deeper they are driven into the ground (until they are
seen no more), the further the curtains can be stretched. The stakes are denoting our identity, putting in a “claim” for ownership for the King. Our
“tents” belong to Him, for we are His habitation and His Kingdom is to be enlarged through us. I realized once again that to gain His life, we have to
lose ours completely and the deeper we identify with His death and the resurrection of His life inside of us, the more ground shall be gained for the
Kingdom. Greatness is found in humility and the “unseen” power of the cross is the strength of the expansion of the Kingdom.
Let us not “spare” ourselves, but go the full length to the cross and let us rejoice with each sound of the hammer, driving the self-life underground;
death doing its full work in us until the self cannot be seen anymore. Then only can the multiplication come that will fill the earth with the glory of the
John 12: 24 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much
Much fruitfulness is coming to those who will humbly embrace the cross, putting their very lives on the altar and allow the Lord the burn out all of self
so that He can truly be glorified!
Gal. 2:10 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the
faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
Rejoicing in the Spirit,
