The Downpour of God and the Two Houses

15.09.2018, Daniel Glimm

During a meeting in the apostolic center Holy Place, I had received the grace to minister prophetically and the Holy Spirit began to speak to me about the coming outpouring of the teaching of God born from above, especially for this time. Regarding this I was led to the parable of the building of the house, of which Jesus Christ was speaking and He revealed to me its meaning for this time (see Matthew 7:24-27).

Matthew 7:24-27:
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.

In connection with our present time, the Spirit of Truth let me know that these two houses mentioned by Jesus in the parable represent two characteristics of the fellowship of believers.

The First House on the Rock

The house built on the rock represents the fellowship of saints in this time, who move completely forward in the truth of the written Word of God and herein have true fellowship being in love with God, the Father in Jesus Christ and caring for one another. This walk reflects the highest or greatest commandment of which Jesus spoke when He had been asked (see Matthew 22:36-40).

Matthew 22:36-40:
36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

The Second House on the Sand

The house, built on sand, represents believers in this time who build on earthly, interpersonal relationships and herein have their minds set on their own evalution in the first place, instead of first staying in a love relationship with God, the Father. This approaching finally results in seeking recognition of people first and that is rooted in the fear of man. And it is written, it is the fear of man that causes to fall (see Proverbs 29:25 i.c.w. Matthew 10:28).

Proverbs 29:25:
25 Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.

Matthew 10:28:
28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
The Longing of God

It is the desire of God that the saints in His Kingdom truly relate first to Him and then to one another, which implies true agreement in the Kingdom so that Jesus Christ is revealed (see Matthew 18:19-20 i.c.w. Matthew 22:36-40).

Matthew 18:19-20:
19 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.
20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

Matthew 22:36-40:
36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

It is the true relationship and agreement of saints in His kingdom by which people recognize the very presence of God's love (see John 13:34-35).
John 13:34-35:
34 “A new command I give you: Love (note: “agapạō” => divine-spiritual pure love) one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

The Intensity of True Spiritual Relationship

God's people are in a transition of relationship, which means that the intensity of the relationship of saints in the body of Christ increases towards another.

This is about the body of Christ (note: not just an individual person) moving from the structure of the fellowship of church life into the structure of saints as called ones of kingdom power in the world that brings real change (note: rock structure).

Believers who are in relationship with saints in the church structure set more priority on tasks concerning the “church” than on building the structure of the kingdom.

However, if we prioritize the fellowship within the church over the kingdom of God, the result is that we prefer fellowship structures rather than the presence of the Lord, and in this way we are not primarily inspired by His presence, but are more program-based responding to people's needs or preferences.

The Outpouring Released by God

Now, God is about to come with a great outpouring of His Spirit-filled (note: born from Heaven) teaching for this time to visit His people or His church on earth, which is like a downpour going hand in hand with His written word (see Deuteronomy 32:2).

Deuteronomy 32:2:
2 Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
This outpouring is accompanied by the presence of the power of His Spirit, so that only the saints who have a true or living relationship with the Heavenly Father, His Word (note: God's existing truth for eternity), and then to one another persist through this power of God, whereby the believers who have built upon the structure of sand will break away, meaning that they turn away from what God is doing (see John 6:66-67 i.c.w. 1 Timothy 4:1).

John 6:66-67:
66 From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.
67 “You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve.

1 Timothy 4:1
1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
It will be similar to the time of the book of Acts, where the power of God paired with the spirit-filled doctrine of the resurrection of Jesus implying His righteousness led people to be fearful to join the saints moving in the presence of the wisdom and peace of God (note: Solomon's porch; see Acts 5:12-13).

Acts 5:12-13:
12 The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade.
13 No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people.

The Downpour of God

This coming downpour (note: the teaching born from Heaven by God for this time) will lead saints, who have positioned themselves correctly with a prophetic overview in the center of the will of God, to be catapulted into new spiritual realms and their place of destination and destiny in the natural.
This is about the walk by faith in what was previously heard spiritually, because it will be suddenly brought into manifestation and is a walk in the reality of the promise of God (see 1 Kings 18:41.44-45a.46).

1.Kings 18,41.44-45a.46:
41 And Elijah said to Ahab, “Go, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain.” …
44 The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.” So Elijah said, “Go and tell Ahab, ‘Hitch up your chariot and go down before the rain stops you.’ ”
45 Meanwhile, the sky grew black with clouds, the wind rose, a heavy rain started falling …
46 The power of the Lord came on Elijah and, tucking his cloak into his belt, he ran ahead of Ahab all the way to Jezreel.
Therefore, the Spirit of God moves mightily with his manifesting power among those, who clearly have their minds renewed and set their hearts onto the seeking the kingdom first, willingly letting go individual plans and preferences regarding their lives.
Amen and Amen.
In His Wisdom,
