ESTABLISHING THE KINGDOM
by BILL BURNS
We continue the process of moving from the Church Age into the Kingdom Age.
2012 the beginning of God’s divine government. It will be an AAA Kingdom, meaning: Association, Anointing, and Application (the 2012 dynamic).
Apply by faith that which you have learned. Do the work!
Kingdom growth – first the blade, then the head, after than the full grain in the head. (Mark 4:26-28)
In this season we will learn to establish our kingdom covering. We must weave a spiritual fabric that enables us to wear the garments of the season.
Each of us presently wears a spiritual garment of our own making as we have either added the threads of faith or unbelief, joy or depression, peace or turmoil, worship or complaining, obedience or disobedience, etc. to our garment.
Garments are the invisible fabric of our spiritual covering. Our garment identifies us – who we are spiritually, in the same way that Joseph’s coat of many colors identified him.
Your garments impact the spiritual atmosphere that you live in. It is a time of putting off the old garments that we have worn and of putting on the new.
Matthew 9:16 "No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for the patch pulls away from the garment, and the tear is made worse.
The Trumpet: I hear the Lord calling for a season of jubilation; a season of worship; a season of praise for those things that God has brought us through in the past. For, if we praise Him for that which was done it will establish us in a greater position of receiving the blessing of this season.
Praise Me for those things, which have taken place. Give Me the honor and the glory for healing you, guiding you, and for the revelation that you have received. For, I have brought you out of heartache into joy and liberty. Praise Me in the morning, in the noontime, and in the nighttime. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! I dwell in the midst of those who praise Me, says the Lord.
We are in a prophetic interlude between seasons in which prayer and worship must be the spiritual food we live on. When we worship the Lord for His goodness and for those things that He has brought to pass, then greater will be our blessing in the next move of God—more than we have received in the past.
I prophesy to you that the Feast of Trumpets will birth a new season that will come into full manifestation and go forth in great strength into 2012. This will be the beginning of God’s government becoming very, very apparent to us. The blessings of that government will come when we are living under His rule. We are equipped by those things that He gives to us and made ready to go all the way into this new thing that God is going to do. You don’t want to miss out on it.
Purpose in yourself to get in on that which God is going to do. Establish yourself in that understanding, knowing full well that the Day of the Lord comes into manifestation through His divine government. You will see it. You will know how to live in t. You will know how to operate in it. You will know exactly what that
means for you individually, and then you can go from glory to glory into the purposes of God who knows all things and brings forth prophetic destiny by the power of His Spirit.
Come now, My children, into a perfect truth, a present truth of that which I am doing. For, in the days that are before you that lead from this point until the time that you call The Feasts of Tabernacles, there will be an outflow, overflow, an infusion of My Spirit in such magnitude that it will elevate you in the kingdom of the Most Holy, to a place where your feet will be like hinds feet in high places. Your eyes will be open that you may see, observe and understand the reality of My kingdom in ways that you have not yet experienced, for these are the days of revelation. These are the days of the anointing of My Spirit that rests upon you that breaks the yoke of every bondage. The anointing will pave the way before you so that you will not stumble, and you will have no doubt. You will walk on this path, and in your excitement of it, great things will be accomplished by you, My people, says the Lord of Hosts. Enjoy the journey. Walk in faith.
Go forth with great joy, for indeed these are the days of the manifestation of My kingdom. In these days the reality of a supernatural church will begin to be understood in the land and will be according to My purposes, says the Lord. It is My will for My people to live in the glory of the supernatural realm. The supernatural events that you desire to see will become a reality, which will establish you in a greater measure of faith than ever before. So, arise and come forth into kingdom purpose, says the Lord God Almighty.
Walk in faith – kingdom purpose in this season is to bring God’s people into a fullness of faith so that the Kingdom of God can be demonstrated.
Days of Awe
Two prophetic words for the Feast of Trumpets and the Feast of Tabernacles. The ten days between the two are known as the Days of Awe. The Days of Awe are times of repentance (self-examination), a time of putting on the new garments of celebration for the Feast of Tabernacles.
Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) literally means “head of the year.” The beginning is a new season of divine government. The Feast of Tabernacles is a time of celebration as one dwells with God with expectation of a seeing the goodness of God.
Isaiah 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not; lift up your voice like a trumpet.
Today we will lift up our voice in repentance, prayer, proclamation and the establishment of decrees. This will weave the spiritual fabric that the garments of the new season will be made from – kingdom garments!
1. Repentance – Father, forgive us for the sins of this past season.
Now, remove from us the garments that have been defiled by the flesh.
Isaiah 57:14-15 (NLT) God says, “Rebuild the road! Clear away the rocks and stones so My people can return from captivity. The high and lofty one who lives in eternity, the Holy One, says this: “I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts.”
2. Prayer – we ask for kingdom garments that declare that ALL of Your promises (goodness) are ours in this new season and that they are yes and amen.
3. Proclamation – lift up your voice like a trumpet. A declaration of our rights. We declare that:
a. My sins are forgiven.
b. By Your stripes I am healed.
c. I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
d. You will provide for me because I belong to You.
e. You will equip me with the Holy Spirit and power.
f. You will lead and guide me in this season.
g. You will be with me and confirm Your word with signs.
h. You are the Author and Finisher of my faith.
I declare that in you I live and move and have my being. I am an overcomer—more than a conqueror—and, you are always leading me into victory, etc. (that which you need).
4. Decrees – out of Divine Government (authority)
Season of Horses
Jeremiah 12:5 "If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, In which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?”
The Book of Esther establishes the pattern of kingly decrees.
Esther 8:8 "You yourselves write a decree concerning the Jews, as you please, in the king’s name, and seal it with the king’s signet ring; for whatever is written in the king’s name and sealed with the king’s signet ring no one can revoke."
Esther 8:13 A copy of the document was to be issued as a decree in every province and published for all people, so that the Jews would be ready on that day to avenge themselves on their enemies.
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me," Says the LORD.
No attack! No curse! No obstacle! No temptation! No sickness! No weapon formed against us will prosper.
Mark 11:22-23 So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”
His power over His people
His power in demonstration
His glory over His kingdom
Isaiah 4:5 then the LORD will create above every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and above her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night. For over all the glory there will be a covering.
This day the preparation for the new season has been accomplished. Amen!
