Schools of Ministry

By Paul Keith Davis

Truth is often hidden in plain view. For centuries archeologists meticulously scrutinized the ancient writings and hieroglyphics encrypted on Egyptian artifacts. Only with the discovery of the Rosetta Stone was a dictionary of ancient language furnished to give meaning to the mysteries.

There are many layers of Scriptural Truth. At best we understood them only partially. The words are plainly before us, but their full meaning has been hidden.

For hundreds of years Jewish followers contemplated the prophetic scriptures pointing to their messiah and the restoration of Israel. None, however, understood their application. The Lord’s crucifixion, burial and resurrection was a mystery hidden in plain view. The Scripture recorded the message, but only in its fulfillment did absolute understanding develop.

Now, great end-time mysteries foreseen by Daniel and John the beloved are being disclosed and imparted. (Daniel 12; Revelations 10) A righteous generation anointed with revelatory insight will probe deep into the heart of God where they are hidden.

Schools of ministry to prepare and equip the Body of Christ for this notable destiny are emerging with an amplified sense of responsibility.

Unlocking Mysteries

In 1799, outside the seaside town of Rosetta, Egypt, leaders of Napoleon’s army uncovered a granite stone. The relic, known as the Rosetta Stone, originated in 196 B.C. On the stone is inscribed a message in three discernable scripts— hieroglyphics, demotic and Greek. It is surmised this was done so priests, government officials, and rulers of Egypt could all understand it.

During that era, religious documentation was preserved with hieroglyphics. The common script of Egyptian populace was demotic while Greek formed the language of Egyptian rulers. Translation of the Greek supplied a tool for archeologist to decode the other two communications.

This discovery provided a language dictionary to help translate many other ancient Egyptian writings. The inscriptions were present for many centuries but without comprehension or understanding. Acquisition of the Rosetta Stone provided the key to decipher the messages. The documentation was plainly visible but locked behind a door of the unknown.

Similarly, keys of interpretation and supernatural insight are being imparted by the Spirit of Revelation. Biblical passages have been before us all along but our comprehension has been painfully limited.

Thankfully, the Holy Spirit’s release of insight with understanding will help in this prophetic journey. The finest wine has been reserved for the latter days.

Lighthouses

Many individuals are being prepared to experience releases of spiritual “light” on an unprecedented level. “Lighthouses” of God are emerging to provide revelatory insight to direct our path and cleanse the soul. Schools of ministry are being established throughout the Church to mentor a generation of future leaders for this cause.

Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand). Jeremiah 33:3 Amplified

Truth that has not yet been fully understood or distinguishable will be uncovered. The Lord is approaching with the now open book in His hand beckoning us to consume it. When we do, it’s contents will become part of our spiritual composition; end-time Truth will be woven into our spiritual DNA. (Revelation 10:8)

It is the book of redemption and the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Ministry of Recovery

Recently, I have been experiencing God’s tug to revisit prophetic revelations from 1994-95. There are numerous present-day applications to the insights.

On August 1, 1994, Bob Jones and I jointly circulated a prophetic word involving God’s desire for the Gulf Coast. This plan involves multiple spiritual deposits with Kingdom focus.

Establishment of ministry schools is high among the Lord’s priorities expressed in the revelations. Equipping of warriors for the coming battle will be the primary mandate.

A thorough understanding of our spiritual heritage and victorious future will be foremost among the curriculums. God’s strategy for this cause has been progressively unfolding in recent years.

Our nation experienced tremendous expressions of spiritual visitation throughout the last century. During the latter 19th-century, Alexander Dowie and other prominent leaders facilitated corporate restoration of the healing ministry.

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit experience captured the nation and spread rapidly through the early 20th century. Forerunners and pioneers blazed a trail demonstrating the Pentecostal message to the nations of the earth. It continues to this day.

The healing revival birthed in 1946 provided one of the most incredible manifestations of God’s grace ever witnessed. Theologians and church historians verified that the intensity of God’s revelation and power during those years was unequaled in modern history.

Releasing Birthright

Each visitation provided illumination of spiritual birthrights present in the Bible. Even so, they had not been fully understood nor universally appropriated.

Historically, the Lord has always had a remnant of people on the earth walking intimately with Him in Pentecostal power. Very often, that number diminished significantly in comparison to the corporate body of believers confessing faith in Christ.

For example, for hundreds of years the corporate Church did not fully enjoy God’s benefits promised in Acts 2. Being filled with the Spirit, and all it’s wonderful bestowals of power, are our covenant blessings since the Day of Pentecost.

However, throughout the Dark Ages very few people experientially apprehended this reality. The truth was always present but somehow veiled to the people’s eyes.

Following the 20th century restoration, Holy Spirit Baptism became recognized as a fundamental part of our Christian journey. Through Charles Parham and William J. Seymour, the Lord reintroduced this experience to the corporate church.

Even so, each “revival” seemed to end in shipwreck. The spiritual light restored to the Church in each outpouring was often distorted or taken beyond biblical boundaries.

We are presently in a season of recovery! Gods “light” is being restored through leaders groomed and refined for this duty. Additionally, things our eyes have not yet seen nor our ears heard will be introduced by the Spirit of Revelation.

The Lord stated in Matthew 13:52,

therefore every teacher and interpreter of the Sacred Writings who has been instructed about and trained for the kingdom of heaven and has become a disciple is like a householder who brings forth out of his storehouse treasure that is new and treasure that is old (the fresh as well as the familiar.) Amplified

These places of restoration and release will be schools of the Spirit and “lighthouses” of God!

Guardians of the Gulf

“I will give these lighthouses to any sincere person willing to clean them up and put light in them again,” the Lord said through the revelations of 1994. “I will make them ‘guardians’ of the Gulf,'” the Spirit added.

A guardian is defined as someone charged with the responsibility of guarding and preserving an individual’s welfare or property. It is committing something into the hands of another for its protection and oversight.

In spiritual terms, becoming a “guardian” implies the stewardship and custodial care of divine impartations. Caretakers of spiritual graces become watchmen and champions for the causes committed to their care.

Light is produced by the merger of the Word and Spirit. The letter of the law alone produces death; but mingled with the Spirit it gives Life and Light. This combination generates Light for the lighthouses; these will be the “guardians of the Gulf!” A lofty standard of purity and excellence must be set.

People who dwell in a shroud of darkness will see a great Light. Guardians of this grace will oversee the lighthouses. (Matthew 4:15-16)

Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life. John 8:12

We are desperate for the brightness of God’s Light in our spiritual houses. It is the inspired Word of the Living God— Word and Sprit integrated as one. The lighthouses will then become reflections of His glory.

The illumination of God’s glory will always highlight the straight and narrow way leading to His Kingdom. Schools of the Spirit will be responsible for instruction in God’s thoughts and ways.

Divine Renovation

An allegorical portion of the 1994 visions portrayed an old neglected temple that was to be refurbished. Not only was the temple interior vandalized but the roof’s poor condition provided little covering.

This prophetic analogy points to prior revivals and spiritual outpourings that functioned fruitfully for a season but were lost. The work of vandals represented evil spirits causing disruption and mayhem. Somehow they unfortunately found access into the purposes. The inadequate roof portrayed a lack of prayer covering.

The Spirit is presently breathing on lost heritage. Unfulfilled commissions and “mantels” of revelation and power are available to be apprehended. Heavenly directives are being re-commissioned with fresh purpose and stewardship.

Restoration of the temple is the primary objective of the new occupancy. The roof’s replacement with adequate prayer covering is essential. God’s temples are to be houses of prayer.

Qualification for Duty

The Apostle Paul identified a qualification needed to equip us with power to perform Heavenly duties. In Colossians 1:12 Paul was,

giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. Col 1:12

How do we know if we are called or qualified for this mandate? The Bible assures us that just as the Spirit has instructed us, so shall we abide in Him. (1 John 2:27)

1. What has been the instruction of the Holy Spirit in your life?
2. Are you desperate for God with a burning heart?
3. Has He for many years released understanding and training concerning the walk of intimacy and the ministry of revival and power?
4. Has He been putting His finger on issues of the soul that are potential snares of the adversary?
5. Has a grace been released to extract those strongholds?

Clearly, we are neither adequate nor qualified in ourselves. Our adequacy comes from God who has qualified us as servants of His new covenant. (2 Corinthians 3:5-6)

There is a decree presently coming from God’s heart to enlist an army for Kingdom purpose and to establish His governmental design. Apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers are being summoned to their post of duty.

The schools of ministry are being charged with Heavenly authority to equip these leaders. Once in place and functioning in proper biblical order, God’s Glory will descend upon the temple as it did in the days of Solomon. Great secrets and mysteries of the Kingdom will become a living reality.

Fireside Chat with Bob Jones

By Paul Keith Davis

Early 1995, Bob Jones prophesied two storms were to strike the U.S. in the same proximity. He was told the storms would have prophetic significance. The first would be an indication of God’s plans while the second would reveal the enemy’s. Although he had seen the two distinct storms, the place of landfall was unclear.

During the latter days of July and early August that year, Wanda and I hosted Bob and a gathering of prophetic friends at our home in Orange Beach, AL. Our meeting was interrupted by a hurricane that entered the Gulf of Mexico.

Hurricane Erin first struck the Melbourne, Florida area before entering the Gulf. Erin came ashore August 3, 1995. The storm’s eye grazed the western boundary of Pensacola and passed directly over the place of our meeting.

Following Erin, hurricane Opal also bombarded the same area 61 days later on October 4, 1995. Opal had devastating effects with considerable foundation and beach erosion that stretched 150 miles.

Meteorologist confirmed that two hurricanes striking the same spot in a century would be phenomenal. Dual hurricanes making landfall in the same area in just over 60 days is supernatural!

Erin— the Watcher

These occurrences fulfilled the prophetic revelation of double storms highlighting a corporate season of significant spiritual emphasis. The name Erin means “watcher” or “one who is awake and watchful.” God is watching over His word to perform it.

Eight days after Erin, on August 11, a beautiful white dove landed on our balcony. Uniquely, it remained although it was clearly not domesticated.

We plainly heard the Lord speaking to us involving this sign as an indication of the “Dove Company.” This body of believers will emerge in this generation possessing burning hearts desperate for intimacy with Jesus.

The Holy Spirit will come and remain upon this company as they find their rest in Him and He finds His rest in them.

Fullness of Time

Many notable things are presently at the door. A renewed emphasis has been placed upon the 1994-95 revelations. We have come to a fullness of time juncture for their fulfillment. Spiritual “watchers” are being charged with Heaven’s decrees to see these words achieved.

Visit from a Watcher

On August 12, 2004 a spiritual being appeared to Bob and identified himself as a “watcher.” In 30 years of prophetic ministry, many of the Lord’s messengers have spoken with Bob. However, this one possessed an overwhelming Heavenly atmosphere that comes only from God’s throne. Bob found it difficult to function in his presence.

When asked why this was the first time he had encountered a “watcher,” the messenger responded to Bob saying, “You are living in a new day.”

Revelatory insights are approaching fresh heights through spiritual doors now open. Greater purposes are being apprehended. Higher levels of spiritual authority and Heavenly support are accessible. It is a new time.

The watcher stipulated that he and others like him have been cooperating with God’s plan on earth since the creation of man. Daniel 4:13 & 17 identifies a “watcher” and a portion of his duties. Daniel records,

I was looking in the visions in my mind as I lay on my bed, and behold, an angelic watcher, a holy one, descended from heaven. Daniel 4:13

This sentence is by the decree of the angelic watchers and the decision is a command of the holy ones, in order that the living may know that the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind, and bestows it on whom He wishes and sets over it the lowliest of men. Daniel 4:17

God alone is ruler over the realm of mankind. “Watchers” function as His emissaries to fulfill His commands and made known His counsel.

The “watcher” announced and carried out God’s seven year discipline of Nebuchadnezzar. The “watchers” observe and record the actions of mankind and promote the decrees of Heaven. It is their duty to help fulfill Heaven’s plans on earth.

Watching over His Word

Jeremiah’s prophetic commissioning is one of Scripture’s most often read and quoted passages. Close examination of Jeremiah’s mandate reveals involvement of the “watchers.”

The Lord spoke to Jeremiah saying,

See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.

The word of the LORD came to me saying, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” And I said, “I see a rod of an almond tree.” Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it. Jeremiah 1:10-12

Somehow these spiritual messengers were directly associated with Jeremiah’s commission from God. God’s prophet was instructed to tear down and destroy, but also to plant and build.

God’s degrees are issued to pluck up and overthrow things contrary to His kingdom. Likewise, commands are dispensed to also build and plant according to Kingdom design. This struggle is a spiritual confrontation taking place in heavenly places.

In the economy of Heaven, spiritual beings identified as “watchers” operate closely with us in Heaven’s blueprint. The “watchers” function in cooperation with God’s people to see Heavenly mandates and decrees accomplished.

They can bring judgment or blessing from God’s throne. It is the revelation of Heavenly justice. They record the desire of God and work with us for its fulfillment.

God is sending “watchers” to co-labor with us to pluck up and gather out of His Kingdom all stumbling blocks. (Matthew 13:41) Likewise, this spiritual host will also watch over God’s promises that plant and build the way of the Kingdom.

Places of Visitation

Hurricane Erin was prophetically foretold as a sign of God’s definitive plan. Both its name and location highlight a portion of His intention.

The Lord is emphasizing prophetic words regarding places of revival. The “watchers” are present to work under the Holy Spirit’s orchestration to open Heavenly doors. (Daniel 4:23) They oversee God’s oracles in these places to expose spiritual portals where God’s armory can descend.

The armory or warehouse is a prophetic depiction of God’s storehouse containing spiritual provisions used in the work of ministry. These are Heaven’s war implements. (Jeremiah 50:25)

Fortunately, the Lord is revealing a present release of this dimension of His spiritual host. Promises and end-time strategies are poised for fulfillment. God is watching over His word to see it performed.

The Door of Fullness

By Shawn Bolz

Recently I was praying in my living room and had an encounter with the supernatural. I watched as a large door appeared in front of me in the Spirit. It was an awesome double door; it quickly opened towards me. It opened to the left and right. Each door was etched with gold writing. The left door was named “Filled.” And the right was called “Fullness.”

I looked through the door and was captured into a trance. I realized instantly by revelation that this door was the entry way to Ephesians 3:19-21.

that is, you will know the love of Christ, which goes far beyond knowledge, and will be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to the one who can do infinitely more than all we can ask or imagine according to the power that is working among us- to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever! Amen.

I know that God is opening a door to fill us with a full measure of His love. This simple statement, when understood in the Kingdom perspective, is a huge invitation for His sovereignty to come to us.

Jesus has desired a people whom His Spirit can fill with His fullness since day one of creation. Something has been opened to our generation to experience a full measure of His love which will cause His kingdom to visibly invade the earth. Just like Paul says in Ephesians 3:20, it’s beyond what we can ask or imagine.

Yes the Door of Revelation 4:1 is Opened, but What is it Opening To?

I have heard so many people in the last few years proclaim that the door of Revelation (3:28 and 4:1) is opened to us and it is true! This is a popular theme because God is opening our eyes to heavenly realities; He is grounding us in eternity. We need to start giving language though for what is through that door.

In the same way, many people are teaching that God is opening our spiritual eyes, but what happens when it’s not just in our mental and soul realm where we see. It’s not just a daydream anymore or a mental vision. What happens when we are translated to spiritual places by His love, and we see as He has desired a people to see with no veils over our eyes?

Just like Ephesians 3:20 says, He wants to go beyond our imagination, not just inspire it. He wants to open up heavens desires, not just deal with our desperation for what we perceive is deep.

The Daniels Have Gone Home

In the last 2000 years God has been looking for friends He could trust with His fullness; those who would pay the price to gain a place of authority in love. This means they would go through any wilderness, climb any mountain, pilgrim through any desert, with a solitary goal in their hearts: To be filled with the full measure of His love.

These became like modern Daniels; the Lord befriended them and told them His secrets. Even in modern days we had “Daniels” like William Branham who had the Spirit of Truth stand next to him in sometimes visible ways to the people. The Lord loved Him so much that He sent endorsement for brother Branham’s genuine friendship with Heaven.

Others were like John G. Lake who could see past the physical realm, past the spiritual truths, into the very heart of God’s Spirit. He would manifest the divine love He saw in His faith realm right into our natural world where people would be healed of every incurable disease.

He was reported to have over 100,000 documented healings in his ministry. This does not include many that were in 3rd world countries and places that are not easy to document. There could have been as many as 100,000 more miracles. Even the secular newspapers were constantly reporting the miracles because they were so obvious and profound. Secular media carried the message of heaven invading earth!

These are just two out of many— too many to mention here— but these men and woman were thought by modern intellectuals to be “divinely touched.” They were actually Daniels. They were those who like Daniel, would advocate the Kingdom of Heaven because of their great uncompromising love for God.

They were rare in their generations, and much of what the Lord told them and shared with them from His eternal heart was never spoken about to the masses. Just like Daniel, they were not contending in a generation trying to reproduce or clone their life and ministry; they were holding a door open in the Spirit out of sincere and devoted love as true fathers and mothers.

But as they passed on into eternity, just like Daniel, they had to “seal” the scrolls of truths they had learned. Their friendship was gained and not transferable, and they went on to be with the Lord leaving a message through their life, and leaving incredible historical fruit for Christianity and the world.

They did not however reproduce or create more “messengers” on a corporate scale or release spiritual sons and daughters who moved in the same complete realm that they did. Each one of the men and woman may have fathered or mothered a small group of those who would go on to have access a portion of their anointing, but none completely reproduced themselves. This is because the one who became a Daniel had a high calling of ministering to the Lord’s agenda so their purpose was not to recreate themselves but rather to promote Jesus.

God has taken many of the Daniels home in the last few years. I believe they prepared the way for what is coming. Bill Bright, Derek Prince, Ruth Heflin, Fuchsia Picket, and many, many others have moved on, leaving a legacy and inheritance to a generation.

Churches call them apostolic fathers and mothers which is not the holistic way to see them. They were the Daniels of our generations, holding onto the mysteries of God. They encouraged us by the fruit of their lives that there was so much more available if we would just access God’s heart.

From a Small Company of Daniels to a Generation of Johns

There is something now opened though that God designed from the beginning. In contrast to Daniel who was told to close up the scroll for his generation, we now have a whole new breed on the earth that John the beloved was a token of. John was invited into such a friendship with eternity, that Jesus could not wait but to reveal the fullness of His purpose to John. He was a picture of an end time generation.

Although Revelation is a hard book to understand for many, and through misunderstandings has caused as much fear as faith in generations of believers, it is about to become the love letter of our last generation. As John saw the same sorts of things as the Old Testament prophets, unlike them, he was given the authority to bring forth the complete word of the testimony of Jesus to His generation. He was told in Revelation 10, that it was time for the scrolls to be released.

Breaking Open Heavenly Mysteries for a Whole Generation

Instead of God’s friend being a secret keeper of eternal mysteries, John was called to break open a generation to the heavenly realm. He began to give insight and language so that everyone could understand the fullness of God’s desire.

John the beloved was a forerunner of a people who would have fullness; a full revelation of the Love of God in this age. We are going from the few sovereign Daniels of every generation to a whole generation of John’s. These are those who would be captured by the desire of heaven, and who would be fascinated by the mysteries of God.

Revelations of Heaven’s Heartbeat

Starting in the past few years, you can begin to document the number of mainstream ministries that are promoting love as the primary issue of ministry and life. This is because they themselves have been encountered by the heart of God. There is a new heartbeat that is acting like a rallying war cry in the hearts of those who are dedicated to Jesus.

God has opened the door of Fullness and is encountering people all over the earth with a revelation of His full love.

In our meetings we have begun to lay hands on people and even open the door in corporate ministry by calling people to Ephesians 3:19; to the full measure of love. This full measure is beyond what we are able to contain in our own nature. We have to be expanded supernaturally to contain it. In some ways this is the baptism of fire that was talked about in Acts.

Are you beating with the fullness of His love in your heart? Call your spirit man up to it; it’s available; become like John the beloved.
