Changes and Shifts in the Body of Christ
14.02.2017, Daniel Glimm
The Winds of Change
There are changes or shifts taking place in the body of Christ in Germany (note: and also other nations), because God is sending His winds for this time which bring change (see Hebrews 1:7).
7 In speaking of the angels he says (see Psalm 104:4), “He makes his angels spirits, and his servants flames of fire.”
God is sending His angels to change our atmosphere.
When the angels of God find trees of righteousness in the earth then Jesus Christ will break forth (see Psalm 1:3 i.c.w. Jeremiah 17:7-8).
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither-whatever they do prospers.
7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.
8 They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
This spiritual shift is not just limited to a single region, church or ministry, because it is about the unified bride of Christ, in which Jesus is causing breakthrough.
THE LORD OF BREAKTHROUGHS
It is about “Baal-Perazim“, the LORD OF BREAKTHROUGHS, who is Jesus Christ Himself and who wants to move through us.
If we allow the movement of His presence to move through us, and if we allow the angels sent by God to bring our spirits into movement, we will be part of the breakthrough and also announce it, as it happened in the time of David through the wind in the poplar trees, when the Philistines came up against him a second time (see 2 Samuel 5:20-24).
2 Samuel 5:20-24:
20 So David went to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, “As waters break out, the Lord has broken out against my enemies before me.” So that place was called Baal Perazim.
21 The Philistines abandoned their idols there, and David and his men carried them off.
22 Once more the Philistines came up and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; 23 so David inquired of the LORD, and he answered, “Do not go straight up, but circle around behind them and attack them in front of the poplar trees.
24 As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the poplar trees, move quickly, because that will mean the Lord has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army.”
The Cooperation of the Winds of God with the Present Knowledge in the Earth
When God sends His angels to us which are winds, they take what we have found and understood in the word of God and move with it in order to fill the atmosphere surrounding us with the presence of God; this guides people towards experiencing their breakthrough.
This very presence works breakthroughs in the hearts of people.
God is not only a God of breakthrough, but of breakthroughs!
Moments of Awakening
He is also a God who brings about moments of awakening in the hearts of people who thought He would come to them in a manner they are familiar with.
But if Jesus Christ determines a time of change within His church in accordance with the Father and the Holy Spirit, He appears in a new and unexpected way; this will lead to an awakening in the hearts of people to renew every single cell in its (note: the churchs) organism (see Matthew 14:25-27 i.c.w. Luke 24:13-16; Acts 1:3).
25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.
26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.
27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
13 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem.
14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened.
15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; 16 but they were kept from recognizing him.
3 After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.
You cannot stop Jesus!
Jesus Christ will work this change or shift the way He wants and will not be stopped by any man, even if they oppose His plan.
He moves into His house and turns it into a house of prayer which means a house of true love relationship with the Heavenly Father (see Matthew 21:12-13).
12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. 13 “It is written,” he said to them (see Isaiah 56:7), “ ‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.’”
Put Your Feet Under the Right Table
Where in His house have we positioned ourselves? What is our heart attitude?
Under which table have we put our knees or feet?
Is it the table of King David or is it Saul's table?
We may be "handicapped" as a result of an adverse circumstance in the past and still put our feet under King David's table which means that God is using us for His honour (see 2 Samuel 9:1-3.6-8.10b).
2 Samuel 9:1-3.6-8.10b:
1 David asked, “Is there anyone still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan’s sake?”
2 Now there was a servant of Saul’s household named Ziba. They summoned him to appear before David, and the king said to him, “Are you Ziba?” “At your service,” he replied.
3 The king asked, “Is there no one still alive from the house of Saul to whom I can show God’s kindness?” Ziba answered the king, “There is still a son of Jonathan; he is lame in both feet.” …
6 When Mephibosheth son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, came to David, he bowed down to pay him honour. David said, “Mephibosheth!” “At your service,” he replied.
7 “Don’t be afraid,” David said to him, “for I will surely show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan. I will restore to you all the land that belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table.”
8 Mephibosheth bowed down and said, “What is your servant, that you should notice a dead dog like me?” …
… 10b And Mephibosheth, grandson of your master, will always eat at my table.”
Even where people dropped us like a „hot potato“ when we thought they would look after us, the call of Jesus goes out to come to His table for true fellowship with the Heavenly Father (see 2 Samuel 4:4 i.c.w. John 14:6).
2 Samuel 4:4:
4 Jonathan son of Saul had a son who was lame in both feet. He was five years old when the news about Saul and Jonathan came from Jezreel. His nurse picked him up and fled, but as she hurried to leave, he fell and became disabled. His name was Mephibosheth.
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Hope and Help
There is hope connected to help!
This is help connected to a call or calling to come closer and to sit at the table of the king of David.
Where we feel limited in our relationship with God or feel we are limited in our vision, a call comes from a higher realm of authority to dine with the king; this helps us to fully grasp the meaning of relationship with authority.
Jesus first trained His disciples in this relationship with authority which means Him as the Son of God.
Amen and Amen.
