CORONA VIRUS CALL REPLAY—VITAL INFORMATION
On Wednesday March 4, Glenda Renes, a nurse from the “epicenter” of the Washington State outbreak, shared practical solutions to keep safe in the age of coronavirus. Please make sure to listen to this important call. Replay number: (605) 313-5155 code 552690.
CALL WEDNESDAY—9PM ET. Conference call number: (605) 313-5156 access code 552-690. Use *6 to mute/unmute. Invite your friends to join us!
DEAR CROWNED WARRIORS,
HERE’S A PURIM LESSON. Once Haman’s plot is discovered, all actions necessary must be taken to preserve life.
So it’s no coincidence that, on Purim, extreme measures have been taken by Prime Minister Netanyahu. Israel has now halted virtually all tourism even over Passover, requiring all who travel to the covenant land to self-quarantine 14 days.
On last Wednesday’s call, Glenda Renes mentioned “social distancing” to turn the tide of the outbreak. Israel as an entire nation is the first to employ this tactic without a major outbreak. The measures might seem extreme. But please keep in mind that Israel must mitigate not only accidental infections but tactics by Haman networks still dedicating themselves to “wiping Israel off the map.”
That said, in your own life please forsake presumption in favor of godly wisdom and discretion. It is your birthright. For perspective, remember the prophetic word that for 2020 we are on a Revelation Road. To protect Jesus as a child, Joseph and Miriam were directed to alter the course not only of their journey but their very lives. You and I should carry the same resolve.
Below is a very important word from Chris Mitchell Jr, given by the Lord in a very special prayer time that started this morning when he woke up praying. As most of you know, Chris is a phenomenal friend and apostolic leader from Virginia Beach. He lit up Revolution 2019 with holy fire.
Again, Chris shared these thoughts after his prayer time this morning. Three things come to mind. Given the content, I think we will all say we want prayer times like that. Secondly, his revelatory fire came in as a text at 4:33am. Which means that, to get prayer times like this, we would do well to become more sacrificial in pursuing Jesus early. Or at least stay awake when He wakes us up!
How he was able to type all this out on his phone is simply beyond me. But that’s another story.
Third, Chris later pointed out to us that today is 3-10. Not a coincidence that Malachi 3:10 was highlighted as part of this posting. Please read—and read again! No King but Jesus…
THE PLAGUE STOPS AT THE THRESHING FLOOR
By Chris Mitchell. A few thoughts from my time of prayer this morning. I wrote this to send to our team, but wanted share with you all to get your insights.
The Lord is calling us back to the threshing floor, to separate the clean from the vile. This theme of separation runs through both points the Lord spoke to me about. “His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire” (Matthew 3:12).
Just as Esther called the people to disengage from all other forms of sustenance as she prepared for audience with the King, so it is in this hour. We are being called upon again as the Bride to separate ourselves unto Him, and Him alone…this is a time for the Bridal Fast. As my friend Jolene Hamill spoke, from Revelation 18, this is an hour in which the Lord is calling for his people to “come out” of alignment with every Babylonian system. I believe what the Lord highlighted to Jolene through this is of vital importance.
Prophetically, the threshing floor is the foundation of His governmental house (Solomon’s temple was built on the threshing floor of Araunah as mentioned below) and mixture cannot be tolerated.
“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” (Revelation 18:4).
The Plague Stops at the Threshing Floor
In II Samuel 24 As a response to David’s sin, the Lord allowed a plague to come upon Israel. David began to lean on the the strength of his army, and the abundance of his resources more than His intimacy and covenant with God. As the destroying angel moved through Israel, God in His mercy commanded him to stop at the threshing floor of Ornan/Araunah.
“Then Araunah said, “Why has my lord the king come to his servant?” And David said, “To buy the threshing floor from you, to build an altar to the LORD, that the plague may be withdrawn from the people. And David built there an altar to the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel” (II Samuel 24:21, 25).
God is dealing with Systems that have enriched themselves through the exploitation of their own people, and have dealt in deceit and subversion without regard for truth and equity. As those systems are receiving of just judgement, we must make sure we are positioned to not “partake of her plagues”. I believe through this the Lord wants to redistribute wealth and influence that has been connected to global dominance, back into His house and His global movement of life and freedom! But this will only come to those who have properly aligned themselves with Him.
During Revolution 2019-2020, Jon Hamill prophesied that this year would be one of the tithe. The tithe is covenantal, and as such speaks to where our source actually rest. The tithe testifies of our trust and dependence on the Lord alone as our source. It recognizes Jesus as our eternal High Priest and King. We need to align with this reality afresh, and ensure that we have no allegiances with the system of mammon. I believe Malachi 3 is a word for us in this hour. The Lord, the messenger of the covenant is coming in governmental glory to His house.
“Then the Lord you are seeking will suddenly come to his Temple. The messenger of the covenant, whom you look for so eagerly, is surely coming,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. “But who will be able to endure it when he comes? Who will be able to stand and face him when he appears? For he will be like a blazing fire that refines metal, or like a strong soap that bleaches clothes. He will sit like a refiner of silver, burning away the dross. He will purify the Levites, refining them like gold and silver, so that they may once again offer acceptable sacrifices to the Lord. Then once more the Lord will accept the offerings brought to him by the people of Judah and Jerusalem, as he did in the past. “At that time I will put you on trial. I am eager to witness against all sorcerers and adulterers and liars. I will speak against those who cheat employees of their wages, who oppress widows and orphans, or who deprive the foreigners living among you of justice, for these people do not fear me,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies” (Malachi 3:1-5).
As the Lord comes in to bring greater measures of his government through his Bride, notice that He does so with great intensity. He comes to clean, and purify His people to prepare them to rule with Him! The authority needed in this hour will only come through yielding to the messenger of the covenant as He realigns us and removes the mixture from our midst.
Please also note that the context of this chapter is covenant, and is connected to the tithe. When The Lord pleads with his people to return to Him, he says do so by releasing the tithe as an expression of my covenant. Wealth belongs to His covenant purpose (Deuteronomy 8:18) and He is bringing back into the hands of those who will align with that purpose. Stewardship begins with the acknowledgment that what we have been entrusted with does not belong to us. The tithe testifies that we recognize Jesus as the true owner of all we have, and that we honor his lordship over it.
I believe we will see breakthrough concerning the Corona Virus to the extent that we yield to God in these areas. This is a defining moment for the Bride, we must cooperate with the hand of the Lord in this, then we will see Haman scheme become his own demise.
