In this present hour there is a pronounced release of revelation that is consolidating the Lord’s thoughts and plans for this generation with spiritual language that articulates His purposes. The Bible declares,

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. 1 Cor 2:12-13

Various revelatory truth is being set before us through words that are not taught by human wisdom but by the Holy Spirit. It is the consolidation of spiritual truth with spiritual language in and through those possessing the Holy Spirit. There are corporate and personal messages proceeding from the heart of God relative to our destiny and position in the economy of Heaven.

There is an escalated re-positioning taking place to transition us into a more fruitful posture. Individuals are being stationed in the place of their calling and authority. Churches are
re-focusing their mandates and commissions to more fully cooperate with the plan of Heaven. Many are receiving an understanding of the thoughts and plans that the Lord has for them; they are plans for welfare and not for calamity. (Jeremiah 29:11)

The more pliable we remain in this season the more capable we will become to hear from Heaven in this progression. We are living in a season of spiritual confrontation and advancement. The Lord is sending “angels that gather” to remove the stumbling blocks and those who commit lawlessness. (Matthew 13:41: see WhiteDove Ministries newsletter March 2004)

A first-fruits harvest is imminent. These will actually be the harvesting of future leaders to be used in the “great harvest.” Our admonition at this time is to “gather” and “guard” this harvest for a season of preparation and grooming before they can be released for even higher purposes. This strategy will require a cooperative effort between Heaven earth as we beseech the Lord of the harvest to send laborers. These laborers will be both Christians fully submitted to the Lord and ministering spirits with the spiritual assignments to empower us for this duty.

We are called to forsake our unrighteous thoughts. Isaiah 55:7-9 states,

Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the LORD, and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.

Unrighteous perceptions could plainly be defined as any thoughts that we have that are not consistent with the nature, character and plan of Heaven. God has wonderful “thoughts” for us according to the Scriptures. If we perceive Him in any other way, then we are thinking in an unrighteous way. His love for us is profound. It would be unrighteous for us to think of his love in any way less than perfect.

Our perspective of the Lord must be in the balance of truth. There is both the kindness and severity of God. The revelation of the Lord’s justice is a blessing for those who have submitted themselves to Him and allowed His redemptive process to be complete. There’s nothing to fear in the revelation of the Lord in His justice when we are in agreement with Him, having forsaken our unrighteous thoughts that are contrary to His nature. Our expectation then becomes lofty in the realization of His spiritual blueprint for this notable day.

Blessings of grace and peace,

Fireside Chat with Bob Jones

Overtaking the Thought-Realm by Paul Keith Davis

Many years ago Bob Jones had a profound revelatory encounter in which he was shown the Mississippi River. In the experience he was told of a significant application of this river in the strategy of Heaven. It was portraying the River of the Spirit with specific application to the Lord’s plans for this nation.

Recently, he was given another experience in which he saw the Mississippi River again. Only this time he also observed four evil spirits that were represented by crocodiles. Although he was given a sharp sword to deal with these evil opposition’s, he was instructed to harness their mouths and render them powerless. He put a bridle on their mouths and used their strength to move through the River at a great pace.

That in itself is a prophetic message to the church. Putting a bridle on our mouths can help nullify many of the schemes of the adversary set against Christians through words we speak. Oftentimes we articulate the plans of the enemy when our revelation unknowingly comes from the “second” heaven rather than the third heaven where the plans of God are formulated.

The River was originally intended for fruitful spiritual purposes. Unfortunately counterfeit spiritual authority hijacked the high purpose of Heaven for the River and the Lord is indicating His intent to take back possession of the River. According to Psalms 74:13-14,

You divided the sea by your strength; you broke the heads of the sea monsters in the waters. You crushed the heads of Leviathan; you gave him as food for the creatures of the wilderness. Psalms 74:13 14

There is a present work of the Spirit to sanctify the gifts and callings of Heaven so that they can be used for their ultimate destiny. Many of the false prophetic voices, the occult and psychics to this generation actually possess genuine gifts that have not yet been sanctified. Once purified, then the gift becomes food of the people. The same is true for many musical and creative gifts that are being utilized in the world rather than its highest purpose. The Lord is announcing His intent to redeem and reclaim those spiritual endowments.

Authority is being given to pull down the strongholds, arguments and every high thing that has set itself against the pure knowledge of God. This is the River that is to be purified. The Bible declares,

For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete. 2 Corinthians 10:4-6

The weapons of our warfare empower us to refute unrighteous thoughts set against the knowledge of God. Every proud and lofty imagination that is harnessed against the true knowledge of God will be brought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. That is the sanctification process presently unfolding.

Unrighteous thoughts do not merely consist of sinful actions that we perceive as incorrect behavior. More fully, it includes any thought process we have that is not consistent with the nature and character of God and His word. These are the strongholds and dominions that attempt to taint our knowledge of God and the plan of heaven for this generation. The Lord’s thoughts for us are lofty and powerful— we must come into agreement with that perspective.

Birthing Champions
by Paul Keith Davis

“Now, why do you cry out loudly? Is there no king among you, or has your counselor perished, that agony has gripped you like a woman in childbirth? “Writhe and labor to give birth, daughter of Zion, like a woman in childbirth; for now you will go out of the city, dwell in the field, and go to Babylon. There you will be rescued; there the LORD will redeem you from the hand of your enemies. Micah 4:9-10

Becoming a spiritual champion simply means yielding ourselves so that the Great Champion of Heaven can express Himself through us. Moses gave up the luxury and extravagant lifestyle of Egypt in order to bear the reproach and identity of God’s people.. In so doing he initiated a spiritual principle. The more fully one yields in sacrificially giving themselves to the identity of Jesus, the greater the spiritual opportunity.

Our call is to be the representation of Heaven on earth. From among the nations of the earth God chose Israel…from among the Israelites God identified the tribe of Levi. Furthermore, from the tribe of Levi the Lord awarded the descendants of Zadok a special place at His table because of their loyalty and faithfulness during times of apostasy and infidelity. This reality points to the remnant of a remnant of a remnant. Those who remain constant and dedicated to the anointing of God receive a specific blessing of grace and favor. Endowments of His Spirit will be imparted to empower us to overcome the oppressions of this world and become the representation of Heaven on earth.

In the midst of a society characterized by Babylonian confusion, a body of believers will emerge having become victorious who embody the virtues of the “overcomers.”. The Bible declares that the Lord jealously desires the anointing He has placed within us. (James 4:5) Resident within the heart of the Father are His thoughts for this generation. The Spirit searches the depths of God’s heart to reveal the hidden secrets of His plans and purposes.

Time is Measured

In a prophetic experience I once saw the Lord holding a 12 inch ruler in His hand. I asked what the ruler represented and He said “time— for time is measured.” In the same fashion that we measure the height and width of something with a measuring rod so also has the Father measured an allotment of time in order to accomplish His plan of redemption. While He viewed the beginning of the measuring rod He could also see the end.

At the same moment that he examined the creation and life of Adam He also viewed the latter days and the generation ordained to live in the end-time. While He was viewing the life of the Patriarchs he was also examining the latter day leaders who would carry His anointing for His grand finale. He knew the end from the beginning and specifically imparted a seed of destiny into the hearts of a generation to emerge at the end of time to become the champions of Heaven.

Before He ever fashioned the earth He foresaw an “overcoming” generation who would embody His nature and power. From this posture of sovereignty, the Lord ordained a plan of victory that we are now beginning to experience. That is His plan of destiny.

A Woman of Destiny

Resident in one of the most often quoted stories in the Bible is a profound spiritual reality with direct application for today. In John 4 the Bible records one of the most phenomenal encounters with the Lord Jesus and a woman to whom the Scriptures do not give a name— we only know her as the woman at the well.

What an incredible privilege that was given to this precious woman to have a face-to-face encounter with the King of glory. On this fateful day the Lord sent his disciples away and waited at a well for this little lady to make her routine visit to draw water.

One can only speculate if this precious woman knew if something uniquely qualified this day as one of the most phenomenal in her life. We can only wonder if that morning seemed odd or unique when she was awakened to the eastern sun. Without question, that day marked a point of demarcation in her life and transformed not only her, but an entire city.
All the days the Lord walked the earth were ordained and specifically orchestrated by the Holy Spirit. Therefore we confidently recognize the strategy of Heaven in the awakening of the singular destiny resident in this precious woman on this fateful day. Before the foundation of the world, a seed of destiny was imparted into this woman that was to be awakened in a unique fashion. (Ephesians 1:4)

A Prophetic Model

The Lord has made it profoundly clear to us that this encounter is a prophetic model for the awakening of the Western Church in this generation. In many ways, the Western Church can be characterized with the life of this woman. It seems we have been married to many things except the very purpose for which we were created. We have married denominations, movements, and different expressions of revival and failed to join ourselves to the One who sent these awakenings to us.

The day has now arrived, however, that seeds of destiny are to be inflamed through the model demonstrated in John 4. The Lord could have chosen any expression of His power to capture the attention of this woman. However, he simply articulated the secrets of her heart and accomplished the will of the Father.

The meeting at the well was not a random encounter. It was divinely orchestrated in order to awaken within this woman a seed of destiny imparted to her before the foundation of the world. The Lord had an appointment with this woman to bring her to the awareness of her destiny. To her was given one of the greatest privileges ever bestowed upon an individual.

It was given to her to have an individual face-to-face conversation with the king of Glory. What an awesome privilege! It is significant that the Lord utilized His revelatory knowledge to awaken this woman to the purpose of Heaven.

This prophetic model will also awaken the Western church to her destiny! The Lord Jesus engaged the revelatory realm of Heaven to access the seed of destiny resident in this woman although covered with failure, disillusionment and shame. It is impossible for us to become spiritual champions relying upon our own strength and virtue. Spiritual victory is the result of an impartation from heaven allowing the Lord to express His virtue and characteristics through an overcoming body of believers.

The Living Word

Her exclamation that she knew a Messiah would someday come to reveal the secrets of the heart and do supernatural things expressed the foreknown seed of destiny. Like the woman at the well, when the Western Church experiences the revelatory realm of Heaven that displays the secrets of the heart according to Hebrews 4:12, it will likewise awaken her to supernatural faith that will win our nation.

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do. Hebrews 4:12-13

This little woman became an awesome evangelist because of the supernatural faith imparted to her by her encounter at the well. Clearly she had previously known the sorrow of shame and failure yet the Lord recognized a great destiny that could only have been supernaturally discerned. This woman was the Lord’s choice to awaken the area of Samaria to a day of visitation. The Bible tells us that the entire city came out to hear the testimony of Christ because of the word of this woman.

Our primary purpose is to identify the hidden seed of destiny inherent in the champions of this generation. They presently do not have the appearance or résumé of a champion but like this little woman, they carry a seed of purpose and destiny that will be awakened to spiritual greatness.

It is the Living Word being manifested Who reveals and discerns the thoughts and intents of the heart distinguishing spirit from soul. That is the revelatory realm of Heaven! All things are open and lay bare before the One to Whom we have to do; there is nothing hidden from His sight.

However, when manifested, it will reap the same benefits as it did with the Samaritan village. This little woman became a champion of Heaven because of her encounter with the Lord at the well. The Lord Jesus is the Light of the world. When His light strikes the seeds of destiny inherent in a generation it will awaken them to a life of victory and an army of champions will emerge.

His revelatory light of His end-time plan is being revealed and igniting the souls of people to become the champions they have been ordained to be.
