God is offering to each of us a much higher wisdom, released by the Spirit of God. Now is the time to embrace true Wisdom, who is Christ Himself.

You might be asking how to obtain this much-desired Divine Wisdom—the passionate quest and resounding question throughout human history. The Holy Scriptures clearly reveals the answer:

But to man He said, Behold, the reverential and worshipful fear of the Lord—that is Wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. Job 28:28

The reverent fear and worship of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom and skill [the preceding and the first essential, the prerequisite and the alphabet]; a good understanding, wisdom, and meaning have all those who do [the will of the Lord]. Their praise of Him endures forever. Psalms 111:10
The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning and the principal and choice part of knowledge [its starting point and its essence]; but fools despise skillful and godly Wisdom, instruction, and discipline. Proverbs 1:7

The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning (the chief and choice part) of Wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight and understanding. Proverbs 9:10
What are the first steps to receiving the wisdom from above? This way of the Lord’s Divine Wisdom is entered through two gates, holiness (as expressed in humility) and reverence or fear of the Lord. These are the gates leading to the pathway of Wisdom. God resists the proud but He gives grace to the humble (see Proverbs 3:34, 1 Peter 5:5).

What is this grace that He bestows upon the humble? It is the grace or divine ability to know Him and His strategies for bringing His Kingdom to earth—the grace for Divine Wisdom.

Divine Wisdom … through the Holy Spirit
It is indeed the Holy Spirit alone who imparts Divine Wisdom. Notice the words of Christ recorded in John 16:13:

But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future].

The Teacher who will lead us into wisdom is God’s Holy Spirit. The Spirit alone—not our natural minds— can guide us into all truth, who is Christ Jesus. Specifically, the Spirit “will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future].”

Why is this truth so vital for today? As world economies implode, retirement savings dwindle and earthquakes, tsunamis, famines and floods devastate communities, it would seem that the entire world is seeking to know what will happen in the future.

Without a real relationship with Christ Jesus, humanity cannot find true wisdom. These are days of strong and deep deception. Most of humanity is deluded, blind to the truth, stumbling toward death and destruction (Matthew 7:13). As men and women continue to reject Christ, spirits of fear, accusation, bitterness, anger, occultism, envy and jealousy and rejection divide and destroy families, neighborhoods and nations.

These days that we are facing demand that we all move and speak in a revelatory—not natural—understanding of the times and seasons, receiving Godly guidance as we embrace the promise of Nehemiah 9:20, which assures us that God will release to us the Spirit of God to guide us.

As true followers of Christ, we walk as light-bearers in a dark age. Through us, the Spirit of God will release Divine Wisdom to set men and women free from the captivity of satan’s lies (John 8:12). God’s children will shine with Divine Wisdom, Christ Himself. We must rely only on the revelatory light and illumination of Christ and share His Wisdom with those whose minds are shrouded by lies and deceptions.

Divine Wisdom … through the Word of God

A good, practical exercise for gaining Divine Wisdom is to study a chapter in the book of Proverbs each and every day. You will be surprised at the sound wisdom that will be imparted to you by the Spirit of God. The greatest textbook on life is the Holy Bible; within its pages are the insights that will transform your entire outlook on life (Psalms 119:9-11). Take time each day to feed your soul with heaven’s manna.

Approach the Lord with reverence and awe, humbling yourself before His majesty. We come not with our own holiness and righteousness, but clothed in Christ! Approach His throne of grace boldly and ask our Father God with a sincere heart for the wisdom of Christ. Ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten the eyes of your understanding:

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened … Ephesians 1:17-18

If we ask in simple faith, believing His Word, God will liberally bestow this much-needed wisdom:

If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him. James 1:5

The benefits and blessings of Divine Wisdom are enormous. Wisdom produces understanding revealing the divine strategies to navigate uncertain days, which brings prosperity and favor.

He who keeps understanding shall prosper and find good. Proverbs 19:8

Christ Jesus states that it is as we seek first His Kingdom that everything else will be put into proper place (Matthew 6:33).

Divine Wisdom … to Preach Christ in Power

As we humble ourselves and seek God “with clean hands and a pure heart”(Psalm 24:4), the Spirit of Council will release to us the much needed Divine Wisdom for our day. God desires to release revelation and discernment on a higher level, bringing us out of the world’s confusion and chaos. As we renew our minds with the Word of God, we will know God and “will shine ever brighter and do great exploits.” Daniel 11:32

What are those great exploits? Preaching Christ in the “power” of the Spirit. Our witness of the Gospel is not to be with “persuasive words of human wisdom”(2 Corinthians 2:4-5), but, as Paul continues:

…in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

To experience the power of God, Paul knew that he required the Divine Wisdom of God—not mere human reasoning. Paul writes that he does not speak “the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age,” but rather he speaks “the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.”

Beloved, let’s all contend for the prize possession of Christ, the wisdom of God! Earnestly desire this Divine Wisdom, seeking Him above all else, and prepare to witness the mighty power of the Lord to love the addicted and lost, minister to the poor, heal the sick, raise the dead, prophesy to nations and advance the Kingdom of God on earth—through your own hands and heart!

Walk in the wisdom of Christ.

The same is true for prophets.

They must be given a forum.

Even in infancy they must be allowed the opportunity to learn through practice.

In many churches today prophetic people do not have that opportunity.

They are watchdogs on a short leashes, provoked by insecure masters.

The snubs, harsh looks, and tight-fisted controls are like the blows of a stick.

Most prophets endure quietly, but eventually they either lie down and whimper or snarl and leave.

The ones that leave are dogs running loose in the night.

You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times (kairos).

Mt 16:3
You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favour to her; the appointed time has come. Ps 102:13
Not all moments of history are equal. Some are hinges on which a quantum increase of the kingdom swings. We are currently in one of these.

If we fail to discern accurately what God is doing in this moment much will be lost to this generation. It is imperative for us to understand the times, like the sons of Isaachar, that we might know what to do (1 Chr 12:32).

The New Testament has two Greek words for 'time'.
Chronos refers to the general flow of time, from which we derive our English words chronology and chronometer (the instrument by which we measure time - i.e. a clock or wristwatch).

Kairos, however, refers to an 'appointed time' for a specific purpose. As a momentary window it demands an accurate and forceful response for its purpose to be achieved. For example, it was the word used in the weaving process for the momentary opening of the fabric through which the shuttle travels. It was also used in archery for the narrow aperture in space and time through which an arrow shoots to hit its target.

A kairos, therefore, in God, is an opening in time through which God comes to achieve a particular purpose, demanding an immediate and forceful response. Jesus describes this when he explained that the kingdom of God must be taken forcefully (Mt 11:12). Responding to a kairos requires spiritual violence. First, it must be recognised; and secondly, it can only be entered through radical obedience.
The wisdom writer aptly declares that, "Without a vision (or prophetic revelation) the people live carelessly", or as Eugene Peterson puts it,

If people can't see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed.

Pr 29:18
We have been stumbling "all over ourselves" for the next best thing in church growth and community impact; and, particularly in the prophetic and larger Charismatic streams, for increased spiritual phenomena, because we have not discerned accurately what God is doing.

With the knowledge that God does nothing except he reveals his counsel to his prophets first (Amos 3:7), I submit the following word for your discernment.

"October 8"
In November 2009 I awoke one morning with the voice of God ringing loud in my spirit with the words, "October 8".
There was nothing more; and so, for the next eleven months I pondered it's meaning, sensing it was significant.
And then, as the date approached, I received a phone call from a particular leadership team inviting me to meet with them on "October 8". I had no other appointments for that date, and so, I knew this meeting was significant. After a five-year journey they were at an impasse, meeting to consider the future of the group.

A season of maturity and harvest

To back up a bit, for several months leading up to this I had seen a phenomenon across the larger body of Christ: that we are in a season of full maturity and harvest. Seeds of character and destiny planted over years, and especially in the last season, are coming to full maturity.

Decision by decision, seemingly insignificant at the time, choices have been made, imperceptibly forming characters and destinies. What was not visible in the seed is now made visible in the mature fruit. It is only at harvest that wheat and tares can be distinguished. This explains why, on the extreme end of the scale, there has been a sudden outbreak of high profile ministers being brought to the light for gross departures from the faith, from false teaching to double lifestyles of adultery or homosexuality.

A harvest of two seeds

We are entering a harvest season, but a harvest of what? It is the harvest of two seeds: of wheat and tares - of the flesh and of the Spirit. Our response to the kingdom of God determines whether we sow to the Spirit or to the flesh. It is important to understand that the "flesh" is not referring to our physical bodies, which are the temple of the Holy Spirit, but in the Pauline sense, to our fallen human nature that is predisposed to self-effort and self-will, particularly in our attempts to serve God.

These two seeds are within all of us. When yielded to two kinds of Christians result. They are illustrated in Ishmael and Isaac. While both were of the same father, Abraham, Ishmael was conceived by the flesh. With the delayed realisation of the promised son Abraham impatiently resorted to his own plans and power to bring it to pass. Isaac, on the other hand, as the son of promise, was born through Abraham's faith and patience at the 'appointed time', twenty-five years after the promise.'Ishmaels' and 'tares', therefore, are attempts at achieving the divine purpose prematurely through our own efforts.

We must remember that the parable of the wheat and tares is a kingdom parable addressed to the generation from whom the kingdom was about to be taken. The parable, therefore, as with all the kingdom parables, is not about heaven and hell, but about yielding to the character of the king and his kingdom.

Therefore, being a 'tare' is not so much about losing personal salvation, or living in gross sin, but rather about missing the fullness of the kingdom through the dominance of self. Sons will always remain sons. However, the question is whether they will be mature sons. Those who refuse kingdom maturity will be disinherited, losing the kingdom, while those who submit to the maturing process of God's disciplines will inherit Father's business.

A sifting & sorting

The last season has been a sifting and the next will be a sorting. In the sifting we have made decisions, seemingly inconsequential at the time, but with spiritual consequences as they have determined whether we are in reality ruled by the kingdom of God. We may think we are "serving" God, while unwittingly our service begins and ends in self-determinism; that is, we decide when, where, and how we "serve". The call of the kingdom is never convenient. We are being sifted every time there is a clash of loyalty between God and our money, God and our career, or God and our family.

This is not to say these things are not legitimate. However, it is to say that this will play out in small real life decisions, moment by moment, as to whether we will put the kingdom of God first - first in our affections, first in our relationships, first in our schedules, and first in our finances.

The high call of God in Christ Jesus does not brook with competing loyalties. For the person who is seeking the kingdom these competing demands will be regularly denied. Others may, but you may not. The way into the kingdom is exceedingly narrow, and few are they who find it.

In the sorting there will be much movement as God's people are realigned. The decisions made in the sifting will determine alignment in the body.

Previous loyalties and relationships in the body will come under much tension and even break as Christ marshals the troops in military order for war. Those who have refused to yield to God's authority in the body or in the competing demands of life will be taken out of the frontline.
The Lord of the harvest will re-assign labourers according to their obedience in the sifting.

"October 8" - The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) 2011
Returning to "October 8". On checking the Jewish calendar for 2011 I was amazed to discover that it is the date for the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur).

This has great prophetic significance for the body of Christ in 2011.

By way of background, the corporate life of the old covenant church, Israel, revolved around the three annual feasts: Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles.

They provide a powerful type and shadow of spiritual truths and 'appointed times' in God's calendar for the universal body of Christ.

The typical and prophetic significance of the first two feasts has already been fulfilled: Passover, fulfilled by Christ, our "Passover lamb", in his substitutionary death; and Pentecost, in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the upper room. However, the typical and prophetic significance of Tabernacles remains to be fulfilled.

Unfortunately, with the decline of the church from the second century, the spiritual truths of Passover and Pentecost were gradually lost, needing to be restored. God intervened and through the Reformation (1500s), the Evangelical Revival through Wesley, Whitfield, and Edwards (1700s), and the Pentecostal Revival (1900s) the truths of Passover (justification by faith & holiness) and Pentecost (baptism of the Holy Spirit) have been restored. Each feast restored has been a major kairos or 'appointed time' for the global church.

Nevertheless, this still leaves, Tabernacles, the last great feast to be fulfilled.

The feast of Tabernacles consists of three parts: in order, they are the feast of Trumpets, leading up to the Day of Atonement, followed by the feast of Ingathering.
Mid-twentieth century was an 'aappointed time'- a new kairos for the body of Christ.

There was an opening in the spirit and the feast of Trumpets began. This was a shift from the feast of Pentecost (Pentecostal Revival of the early 1900s) to the feast of Tabernacles (present and future moves of God).

The feast of Trumpets in the Old Testament was a ten-day period marked by the blowing of trumpets, fasting, and humbling before the Lord, all in preparation for the Day of Atonement.

The blowing of trumpets, signifying the prophetic ministry, announced the feast. Mid-twentieth century saw a new awareness of the prophetic, particularly through the Latter Rain outpouring (various ministries and churches in North America & beyond).

The Healing Revival (William Branham, Oral Roberts et al) and the Evangelical Revival (Billy Graham, Bill Bright et al) also occurred at this time. All of these were sparked in 1948, or thereabouts, coinciding with the restoration of the state of Israel.

The Charismatic Renewal (1960s) and Jesus Movement (1960s) followed rapidly on the heels of the Latter Rain and Healing revivals as a flow-on effect, taking the move of God to all nations and denominations.

Many of its most influential teachers spoke out of the truths of the Latter Rain and Healing revivals. Subsequent outpourings of the Spirit, the Third Wave (Vineyard, 1980s)), and especially the Toronto Renewal (1990s), have flowed on from the Charismatic Renewal.

Through these moves of the Spirit 'spiritual' worship (singing in the Spirit/prophetic song of the Lord/scripture in song), ministry of apostles and prophets, prophecy and the laying on of hands, unity of the body of Christ, maturity, restoration, healing and deliverance, and intercession became common currency in the larger church.

And so, for the last sixty years, in this feast of Trumpets, the call has gone out for the Bride to prepare herself for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. There has been a strong Elijah anointing on various prophetic voices preparing the way of the Lord. The call to bridal intimacy, to maturity, to repentance and humility have all been preparatory for a new kairos - the Day of Atonement, and finally the feast of Ingathering.

2011 - a new kairos for the global body of Christ
October 2010 to October 2011 is an 'appointed time' for the global body of Christ.

All that the feast of Trumpets signifies will accelerate and be completely fulfilled. There will be a shift into another dimension of the Spirit and of God's purpose for the church. The Day Atonement and the feast of Ingathering will begin to be fulfilled.

Passover and Pentecost were preparatory for Tabernacles, the last great feast and climax of the Jewish year. The Day of Atonement was the centre point of this feast.

So, what does the Day of Atonement signify for the church?
As Passover speaks of salvation from sin and death the Day of Atonement must speak of something more.

#6531 Oct 25, 2013
The Day of Atonement speaks of a mature church entering the fullness of all that Christ, as our Passover Lamb, has purchased - entry into the inner sanctuary, that previously inaccessible realm where God manifestly dwells - the Holy of Holies. As the culmination of Israel's year it speaks of the church ultimately attaining to mature manhood, to the fullness of the stature of Christ (Eph 4:13).

And as the one day of the year when the Apostle and High Priest went through the veil into the presence without perishing, it speaks of the church moving into apostolic order and resurrection life - into a fuller experience of the powers of the age to come.

Inscribed by the finger of God on the tables of stone, the Ten Commandments contained in the Ark of the Covenant, declare God's holy judgments against humankind - the penalty of death. And yet, the blood of the sacrifice, now sprinkled on the Mercy Seat, allows the Apostle and High Priest, on behalf of the whole nation, to appear in the presence of God's eternal judgements and yet live. The Day of Atonement, is therefore, the fullness of the first-principles of Christ, particularly the final two - eternal judgement and resurrection life:

Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,
and of instruction about washings (baptisms), the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.
And this we will do if God permits.
Heb 6:1-3

The first principles of the doctrine of Christ will be fully restored to the church as she goes on to maturity. Each principle corresponds to the feasts of the Lord as they have been restored or fulfilled in the church:

1. Passover - Repentance from dead works & faith towards God, restored through Martin Luther and the Reformation - justification by faith (1500s).

Ascension Gift Ministry: pastor & teacher.

2. Unleavened Bread & Firstfruits (within Passover)- doctrine of baptisms, restored through the Anabaptists - baptism in water (1500s); holiness, restored through John Wesley - sanctification (1700s).

Ascension Gift Ministry: evangelist.

3. Pentecost - baptism of the Holy Spirit, restored through the Pentecostal Revival (early 1900s).

4. Trumpets (within Tabernacles)- laying on of hands, fulfilled through Latter Rain Revival, Healing Revival, & Charismatic Renewal (mid 1900s).

Ascension Gift Ministry: fuller restoration of teacher & evangelist; partial restoration of apostle; complete restoration of prophet.

5. Day of Atonement (within Tabernacles)- eternal judgement & resurrection life, yet to be fulfilled - the next move of God (2011?).

Ascension Gift Ministry: complete restoration of apostle; apostolic alignment of Christ's global body.

6. Ingathering (within Tabernacles)- maturity - one body of Christ and the harvest of the nations, fulfilled in the coming move of God (mid 2000s?).

Sifting - brokenness before the Lord

As the feast of Trumpets comes to completion 2011 will see an acceleration of the sifting. The call to bow to the government of God, to humility and brokenness before the Lord, will intensify. Additionally, the difference between wheat and tares - between flesh and spirit - will become more visible. There will be a dividing between the holy and the profane.

Sorting - apostolic alignment

This will lead to a sorting of God's people. There will be a major apostolic alignment across the larger body of Christ. True apostles who have been internally processed and aligned with Christ as the chief-cornerstone will become the foundation of the dwelling that God is building by his Spirit. They will emerge from the willing embrace of obscurity through the fires of suffering and persecution.

They will come into a new level of authentic spiritual authority, functioning as true fathers and mothers of the faith. Eschewing titles and positions they will serve through relational and organic networks in humility of spirit, but with great authority. Individuals and groups will be faced with the decision to either accept or reject this new breed of apostolic leader. Those who have baulked at the government of God through the heart sifting of the last season will recoil and refuse this new alignment.

They will reject Christ's authority in his body, choosing to isolate and rebelliously dwell in a dry land. Nevertheless, Christ's authority will return to his church and the fear of the Lord will be restored.

A new breed of Christian, with a teachable heart, will seek out spiritual fathers and mothers for the wisdom of God. They will lay down their lives for the sake of the body, investing themselves in the redeemed community.

As the church comes into apostolic order there will be a quantum increase of the government of God. God's favour will increase, accompanied by miracles, signs and wonders. Even so, the miraculous will be with apostolic purpose; that is, for the harvest.

This will be in stark contrast to those who are currently pursuing supernatural phenomenon to engage a constituency and advance their ministries. The apostolic oneness of Christ's body will be restored, with the increase of new citywide organic wineskins.

These will be apostolically related and organisationally decentralised, bypassing the institutional system of church. Through these new organic apostolic networks the body of Christ will be prepared and equipped in the supernatural for the harvest of the nations.

How to respond to an 'appointed time'

When the kingdom comes to each of us it comes in a way that is imperceptible to the natural man. Our senses and cognitive capacities are inadequate for the knowledge of God. The natural man cannot receive the things of the Spirit. As helpful as book-learning may be it is not adequate, apart from the Holy Spirit, to reveal God.

Therefore, I must recognise that without humility of heart and reliance on God, I do not have the equipment or the ability to understand the Christian life, let alone live it.
The kairos, while in space and time, is not of this world and must be spiritually discerned:

However, as it is written:

"No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
what God has prepared for those who love him" -
but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit.

The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
1Co 2:9-10

Jesus, in response to the Pharisees' demand for a sign, pointed to the contradiction of them interpreting signs of the weather, but not discerning the signs of the 'times'(kairos):
You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times (kiaros).

Without Prophecy, We Perish!

As we worshipped last Sunday, I could hear the Lord say,“Behold, I conquered death, hell and the grave. I hold the keys that will not only set you free, but open the way for you to go. As you commune with Me, My blood and your blood and My Spirit become one. The glory that I released in the earth will manifest in you. So commune, commune and rise up with Me.”

“There is an updraft of the Spirit.
There is an updraft of Holy Spirit.
I am rising with Him,
Ever higher – rising higher
My heart’s desire is Your fire!
We will rise to open skies.
We will rise to open skies.”

“I am Abba Father and you have allowed the world to try to mold you into its image instead of transforming into the created way that I have ordained you to be! The past three weeks have been trying, and you have said in your heart,‘I wish I could just hide until the storm passes!’

But I say to you,‘Dance in the storm and the Light will break through your clouds!’ Know that the Father is coming to raise you above the root system that is trying to capture your feet.“Rise up! Rise up! I have a root of joy that will spring forth within you. Rise up and do not let the confinement of the world overtake you.

Rise up, for I am your Father and I hold the keys to your glory. I AM lying wait for your enemy. You have been afraid that the enemy has been lying wait on your path. But I am lying wait for that dragon that is holding back that crossing over time for your life. It is Me who is exhaling. It is Me who is beginning to breathe, for I am hidden in a place that the enemy knows not.

I will surprise your enemy and I will open up a way that has not been opened for you. Mark your calendar, for the way that was not opened up will now open up. Now, on your behalf, I will manifest and surprise the enemy, and he will say ‘Your God has overcome me again!’”

The first expression of the prophetic calling is judgment.

Unless we have a stomach for that, then we will not be allowed the privilege of the word that builds and plants. Note the order of the words: the hardest thing first.

Everything that is painful to the flesh and that will earn for us the displeasure of men must first be addressed.

The prophet is called to pluck up and break down the things that are dear to men, namely, their religious tradition, the false things that they have celebrated for generations, the things that they want to cling to because it has to do with their identity and their dignity and the way in which they even see themselves.

Men will kill for this and yet the prophet has got to tear down and destroy.

The things that are false will be contended for fiercely! He has got therefore to be painful and a destroyer.

His word then is destructive before it is benevolent.

Unless we are willing to speak the destructive word, we will never be used for benevolence.

Only the prophets who were faithful to speak the word of exile and judgment were also the prophets who spoke the word of restoration and return.

They were given the privilege of speaking the creative word of restoration.

There is a reason why John the Baptist was in the wilderness and not in Jerusalem, though he was the son of a priest.

He could not be where the Establishment was.

He could not enjoy its benefits and at the same time ‘blow the whistle’ on the falsity of it.

We cannot in our own lifestyle indulge in the very thing that we are condemning before others.

Lifestyle is, therefore, remarkably important with regard to the word that is to be proclaimed and probably nothing more betrays whether you are a true or false prophet than this.
