August 31stJoshua 11) Now it came about after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD that the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' servant, saying,2) Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, cross this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel.3) Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you, just as I spoke to Moses.4) From the wilderness and this Lebanon, even as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and as far as the Great Sea toward the setting of the sun, will be your territory.5) No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you.6) Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.7) Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.8) This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.9) Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."10) Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying, 11) "Pass through the midst of the camp and command the people, saying, 'Prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days you are to cross this Jordan, to go in to possess the land which the LORD your God is giving you, to possess it.'12) And to the Reubenites and to the Gadites and to the half-tribe of Manasseh, Joshua said, 13) "Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, saying, 'The LORD your God gives you rest, and will give you this land.'14) Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle shall remain in the land which Moses gave you beyond the Jordan, but you shall cross before your brothers in battle array, all your valiant warriors, and shall help them, 15) until the LORD gives your brothers rest, as He gives you, and they also possess the land which the LORD your God is giving them. Then you shall return to your own land, and possess that which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you beyond the Jordan toward the sunrise." 16) And they answered Joshua, saying, "All that you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go.17) Just as we obeyed Moses in all things, so we will obey you; only may the LORD your God be with you, as He was with Moses.18) Anyone who rebels against your command and does not obey your words in all that you command him, shall be put to death; only be strong and courageous."The difference between the wilderness and the promise land is that in the promise land there is no fire by night or cloud by day to lead you. The manna from heaven showed the faithfulness of God as He was faithful to bring them out and take care of them. Yet it was not the promise, it was only the provision. In Joshua 1:2 “Therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people to the land which I have given to them.” The instruction given to Joshua to enter the promise land was “only be strong and of good courage. Which God repeats 4 different times in Joshua chpt 1.We are moving from a season of provision to a season of promise. In the wilderness God was faithful to provide as His people were faithful to continue following day by day even when they couldn’t see the promise. Jesus coming out of the wilderness did not need a deliverer, He became the deliverer. He became the answer.“This wilderness I have endured, this is where you had me of that I’m sure, that I might become the evidence was the key because this test was not for you but me.”As God instructed Joshua to cross over the Jordan in 3 days the word was to Possess the land. “Yarish”yaw-rash', yaw-raysh'A primitive root; to occupy (be driving out previous tenants, and possessing in their place); by implication to seize, to rob, to inherit; also to expel, to impoverish, to ruin: - cast out, consume, destroy, disinherit, dispossess, drive (-ing) out, enjoy, expel, X without fail, (give to, leave for) inherit (-ance, -or), + magistrate, succeed, X utterly.To occupy and change its structureWE WILL, WE MUST, WE ARE POSSESSING THE LAND.Joshua 1:3 “Every place that your foot shall tread, I have given you”
September 10thAs Apostolic understanding is released we watch as the globe becomes smaller. Divine connections and appointments become the center of our travels and mandate here in South Africa.Now the church is in a global positioning and re-introduction of apostolic and prophetic mandate that will bring divine order, strategically positioning the church for assault.Reformation is the set time of God’s favor on the earth. IT IS THE SEASON FOR ZION'S APPOINTMENT !!!Zion is not a place, it is a people! Zion’s appointment In this Kairos moment must bring about the time when the anointing and His presence meet, because although you might be anointed, if you are not coming to that place where you encounter His presence then His glory cannot inhabit Zion. We must preserve the intimacy of Zion. His anointing marks a people but the presence of God makes a people. The mark separates you, but when you are made and fashioned it forms who you are.David knew that the glory of Zion, the presence of God, the covenant had been stolen.The Philistines were the reason the ark was stolen. When you are anointed and called there will always be Phillistines in hearing distance who will come to steal, orchestrating attack on your life. In 1 Sam 5:17 when David was anointed for the third time by the elders the Philistines heard it and began to order attack on David’s life.…. But God was preparing a man, and David becomes the catalyst to merge the anointing and the presence and bring back the ark of the Covenant. He had to find what was missing…. So he went on a journey to go find the ark, to bring back to the people the presence, the intimacy of Zion…. On David’s journey, when you are preserving intimacy making God the access, only then are we operating in the capacity of our anointing as we are building a Zion people / church.Whenever you have mandate that you are executing on earth there will be shaking, but His promise in Deut 8:18 says “He has given us the power to gain wealth.” We keep prosperity by our intimacy with His presence.David sought after God for the order in which he was to bring in the presence of God.SEPTEMBER 14thReformation is a biblical truth. God is looking for a portal that will become a conduit in (through) which He can download His statutes, His ordinances and judgments.Africa is now the mirror of the global transformation. Zion is the epicenter of God’ appointed purpose and plan for the nations. God is revealing ancient mandates as He is repairing His restorers. We are now in a KAIROS time. A moment in time!New testament speaks of time either being Chronos or Kairos. Chronos = linear time, as in chronological time, marking event to event in order from past to future. Kairos in a picture form would be the exact moment when a needle on a weavers loom pierces through the criss-crossing threads, causing a mark, a stitch, in the pattern. The secret to the moment, is that it must be precise and exact at the point where the two grids of the loom cross over one another and the needle is able to cut through bringing the colour of thread in and out, creating the stitch that adds the colour.Kairos is defined as circular time. It is a re-genesis bringing a new reality. Always bringing time full circle. 1 Cor 5:28 Speaks of Jehovah Shama, the ever present God available in an ever present now.Revelation 21:5 “Behold I make all things new.” Kairos is always new, recently made fresh, unprecedented, yet it always must bring things full circle to what was first new, first the GENESIS.When God created man, created he them in their image and likeness, to walk and fellowship in common union. In the cool of the day God met with Adam. He searched for him in the Garden and found him so that they might walk and talk with one another. – Gen 3:7In that image were you and I created. To walk and talk with God. As man sinned hid himself from God, as God would everyday, He came looking for Adam in the cool of the day, and when He could not find Adam He, God, called out to Adam “Adam, Adam where are you?” Adam then answered and said he was afraid. God in great concern asked Adam “Who told you you were naked, who told you to be afraid?” It was not God’s desire that man know fear and shame, but rather to rule and reign, subdue the earth and multiply and to commune with God as He revealed His mysteries and His heart to Adam day to day.As God touches us with His Kairos moments in time, He is marking in our day a split moment where He makes a mark that causes our chronos time to become a re-genesis. Bringing us back to the beginning. Taking us back to the future! Making all things THE NEW. Possibly the moment when the ocean meets the shore could be a kairos picture :) Where the waters and land meet.
DEPARTURE DAYThey have the ability to move ahead to pioneer a new move for Kingdom advancement, breaking the barriers of culture, race and human limitations. They are not confined to the traditional boundariesof Judaism. They are prepared to break the limitations of race and culture and reach out to those outside these lines of separation. Neither persecution nor the constant threat of hate and fear keep them from moving ahead.EVERY pioneer will have to face the challenges of being willing to be “a seed that will fall to the ground and die alone” and then, after death has taken place, it shall bear forth much fruit. They have the ability to move under intense pressure allowing God to fashion their character and raise the standard for the succeeding generation of followers.. The intense persecution and the scores of martyrs does not kill the momentum and the intensity of the advancement. Rather the persecution produced a better quality of man for the Kingdom assignment. They are not chocolate soldiers who melt under the sun. They are trained to push their own fears and limitations to realize their full potential in God. Trained to doubt their own doubts and frighten their own fears. They are t rained to never fall back but push forward despite hardship and pressures.The sons of Ephraim in Psalm 78:9 were archers equipped with bows yet they turned back in the day of battle because they did not keep covenant. They are trained and skilled men of war but chose to break covenant with God when they were most needed for national victory.….. but these men that I speak of, these sons of a different spirit are not quitters. They station themselves wisely so that they are always the strongest link in the chain.Nehemiah 4:13 - ..”Then I stationed men in the lowest parts of the space behind the wall, the exposed places, and I stationed the people in families with their swords, spears and bows.”The most exposed places are guarded by the presence of the strongest men.They are moved without compromise to deliver the unadulterated Truth of God!!! -Jonathan DavidWHO ARE THESE MEN ??? They ARE the FINISHING GENERATION.Like Jehu we ride like man men! Like Jehu we can’t be stopped! We ride furiously, like a company and we bend the bow back with full strength. Shoulders back and our heads held high.. Now we ride…. Straight forward not turning around, shoulder to shoulder and we’re making our sound. In this dust cloud, If you happen to fall, get right back up because we are sticking to the call.We are on a mission that we will not retreat, we are an army that’s strong and mighty, a nation that’s holy and pure, a kingdom that can’t be shaken, a priesthood that knows the heart of God. We are conquering kings, taking a stand, wielding a sword in both of our hands. We are stronger than we’ve ever been before, we are sons carrying His name, for in our blood we have Godly DNA. We were created to rule and reign with him… for such a time as this.We ARE the FINISHING GENERATION!Angie’s word to us on the 15th of September. The God timing word of the Lord to 3 Joan of arcs. “You are on a faith trip, do not let your emotions and your thoughts get in the way of your faith. For when the flesh is vulnerable to negativity and doubt, your spirit man is vulnerable to the attacks of doubt. You begin to ask yourself the questions ‘whether or not you made the right decision etc’ . The fire that you once had only becomes a flame, and flames do not have the capacity to start a brush fire. Do not think logically. The enemy comes to fight us with fire, so understand that we are back burning now so that when fire comes, company is not burnt. But if you allow the fire to become a flame, any wind will blow that flame out. Encourage and exhort one another, for it only makes you stronger.“Then I hear you voice oh Lord, telling me it’s in your hands. I believe it is, I believe it is.Speak to me of who I am, because of who you are. I believe I am, I believe you are.For you remind me of what it feels like when perfect love casts out all fear.You define love, beautiful you are Lord. With my heart, my mind, my soul, I want to know you. I love you, I need you. Beautiful love! Africa has made her voice known.To the destiny driven daughter of Africa. The covenant woman of God on the Earth, the Church, Kingdom. From the cradle of eternity you were conceived, created and molded, raised and preserved, for a mission yet untapped, capacitated by your creators attributes. You were born to be re-created and born again to preserve covenant excellence. This, your destiny, your true origin, from the one who inhabits eternity, the mystery covenant has come, in the form of the land it has come. Africa, Gods’ covenant partner for global emancipation.It was to Africa that He, God, turned. Egypt…. when the global plan of salvation was threatened. It was to Africa that He, God, turned. Simon the African, when the saviour’s cross got heavy. And so the blood of his suffering touched Africa first. NOW it is to Africa that He turns. When you agreed to be a covenant witness to the season of the redeeming of the sorrows, the perilous time of the ages. It is to you, that God is asking again…. Africa can you help me?For such a time as this you were born to heal the land that was torn, from the lowest pit to the stars. It’s time for you to open your mouth, hear the cry for freedom of the south. From your destiny and true origin, prophesy the word of destiny, sing the song of destiny, shout aloud the call of destiny. Let no other past define you. Hear the voice of eternity calling. Arise and preserve excellence.We journeyed as God instructed, We sought the defining moments He had appointed. We watched as our hearts were touched and the supernatural became the lifestyle. We responded to the call….
WATCHMAN – ( JOANNA )Your post is on the wall. You are on the watch for what is coming in and what is going out. Sensitive and alert at all times. A watchman stands guard day and night and knows the gates. Look over the horizon, what do you see?DIRECTOR - ( J.J. )Sensitive to the leading of the spirit.
