A New Era of Prophetic Anointing

24.04.2020, Daniel Glimm


The Body of Christ in Germany is currently undergoing a spiritual upheaval, in which the Holy Spirit points out that the authority and power within the prophetic anointing is increasing in the Body of Christ.
 
This increase is accompanying the end of an approach in the prophetic anointing leading to the prophetic anointing being joined to apostolic authority as it carries the revelatory truth for the people of God at this time.
 
The Alignment of Moses and Aaron
 
It is similar to the alignment of Moses and Aaron, where the LORD told Moses to be God for Aaron, with Aaron acting as his mouth (cf. Exodus 4:15-16).
 
Exodus 4:15-16:
15 You shall speak to him (note: Aaron) and put words in his mouth; I will help both of you speak and will teach you what to do.
16 He will speak to the people for you, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to him.
 
This is about the connection of the two faces of God, namely that of the lion and that of the eagle. The two faces bear the words of the prophet Amos, who prophesied: ‘The lion (note: symbolizes the office of the apostle) has roared – who will not fear? The Sovereign Lord has spoken – who can but prophesy (note: eagle)?’ (cf. Amos 3:8)
 
The face of the lion is connected with the Spirit of the Lord, the Spirit of the fear of the Lord and the kingship of God. The face of the eagle is connected with the Spirit of wisdom and knowledge and with the oracles of God, which are the lots Urim (note: lights) and Thummim (note: perfections, holiness, truth, right), which represent the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the form of the will of God for the terrestrial realm.
 
Both faces include the call of God to exercise the Kingdom government of the Lord in the natural as well as the supernatural realm, as revealed in Colossians 3:1-4.
 
Colossians 3:1-4:
1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
 
The Lord is advising us that the end of a common prophetic practice in the Body of Christ in Germany is also similar to the situation at the time of the prophet Elisha. In this context, a widow came to him, who only had a jar of oil in her house and, according to the prophet's instruction, brought empty vessels into her house, so that the oil increased and new personal economy could rise in her house (cf. 2 Kings 4:1-7).
 
2 Kings 4:1-7:
1 The wife of a man from the company of the prophets cried out to Elisha, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that he revered the Lord. But now his creditor is coming to take my two boys as his slaves.”
2 Elisha replied to her, “How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?” “Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a small jar of olive oil.”
3 Elisha said, “Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few.
4 Then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side.”
5 She left him and shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring.
6 When all the jars were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another one.” But he replied, “There is not a jar left.” Then the oil stopped flowing.
7 She went and told the man of God, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left.”
 
The Increase of the Prophetic Anointing and Authority
 
Even though we as the Body of Christ are currently confronted with challenges and loss, this is a call from God to us as His church, that we allow the prophetic anointing to multiply to the extent determined by God.
 
This mother was before she became a widow married to a prophetic disciple who had learned from the prophet Elisha and thus brought the prophetic anointing into the house, which came to an end in its way when the man died.
 
This means that it is no longer adequate that we only let prophets or prophetic voices speak out within our communities, merely by serving people personally, in order to reveal to them God's counsel for their personal lives.
 
It is rather urgent that we listen to prophets in Germany and allow them to speak into the church as well as into regions in our nation, even if it is a matter of admonishing words that can shake. It is important here that the apostles, in their respective authority given by God, awaken the hearts of the believers so that the prophets with the revelatory light of God's truth are given permission to flood the hearts with the spirit of wisdom and revelation (cf. Ephesians 1:17-18 i.c.w. Acts 11:27-29; Acts 15:32).
 
Ephesians 1:17-18:
17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, …
 
Acts 11:27-29:
27 During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch.
28 One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.)
29 The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea.
 
Acts 15:32:
32 Judas and Silas, who themselves were prophets, said much to encourage and strengthen the believers.
 
As a result, the already established truth of the Word of God becomes revelatory truth in believers, impregnated with knowledge. The Holy Spirit leads us into a higher prophetic dimension, which is connected with the fact that we are confronted with loss or challenge in order to enter into a personal, real relationship with Him. It is now necessary to recognize in which sonship we are moving forward.
 
Is it the sonship that serves out of any kind of ‘slavery’ to receive recognition through works alone and justifies out of self-righteousness?
 
Or is it the sonship that is out of grace and close to the heart of Jesus as well as in close connection with the church, detached from denominations and church membership, and fully identifies with it in order to serve the church on behalf of God's instruction?
 
In 2 Kings 4:5-7 it says that the widow, here as a symbol of the Body of Christ in transition, entered a new prophetic dimension by going into her house and shut herself in with her two sons who served her in the phase of prophetic progression. Speaking in a prophetic context, these two sons represent, among other things, the power of the Word of God in the form of the Tenakh and the New Testament.
 
2 Kings 4:5-7:
5 She left him and shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring.
6 When all the jars were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another one.” But he replied, “There is not a jar left.” Then the oil stopped flowing.
7 She went and told the man of God, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left.”
 
This phase of ‘outpouring’ contributes to the intensification of the relationship with the Heavenly Father and to the strengthening or increase in the substance of His Word, which is transformed from truth to revelatory truth (cf. Matthew 6:6).
 
Matthew 6:6:
6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
 
The increase in the substance of the Word of God is clearly illustrated by the explanation of the Hebrew word ‘jāẓaq’ for ‘pouring out’, which among other things also means ‘casting of metal’. (note: part excerpt from the Elberfelder Study Bible on the Hebrew word ‘jāẓaq – pouring out’ with the word key number: 3405)
 
Thus the transformation of the Word of God involves the shift from the power of the letter to the power of the Spirit (cf. 2 Corinthians 3:6).
 
2 Corinthians 3:6:
6 He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant – not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
 
It is also very interesting that when the measure God had predestined or assigned to the widow was filled, she then only communicated with one of her two sons. From this we can conclude that the other son was either engaged with other things in the room or was no longer present at all (cf. 2 Kings 4:6).
 
2 Kings 4:6
6 When all the jars were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another one.” But he replied, “There is not a jar left.” Then the oil stopped flowing.
 
In this connection the question arises for us in which sonship do we want to move forward in the future as the Body of Christ in Germany?
 
Is it in sonship of legalism, religion, own ideas and concepts (note: to become righteous solely on the basis of works; to have only knowledge of God; self-righteous way of life) or in sonship of faith driven by the love of God and His will to act according to James 2:20.26 (note: includes knowledge of God, which comprises the relationship with God the Father; full commitment to the truth)?
What do we choose?
 
James 2:20.26:
20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless? …
26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.
 
At this point I would like to make it clear that the son, who was present in his mother's room, revealed to her through his reply that the measure of ‘anointing’ predestined by God had been reached. This circumstance is for us today an indication of a new time of application of the prophetic anointing, as well as the resulting ‘economy’ out of it within the Body of Christ.
 
Based on this, it is also clear that the church is moving from a realm of poverty, fear and loss into a prophetic dimension, which results in economy, freedom and joy, because it believes and acts according to the prophetic instruction (cf. 2 Kings 4:7).
 
2 Kings 4:7:
7 She went and told the man of God, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left.”
 
In order to choose sonship that is close to the heart of Christ and in close connection with the church, detached from denominations and church membership, a very personal clarification is needed regarding how far one is willing to accept the changes that the Lord wants to make.
 
Are we ready to surrender everything for the Holy Spirit, and even to give up if necessary, in order to submit ourselves to the structure of the Spirit of God? The way of how God provides is closely related to our understanding of the Kingdom, its principles and effects that proceed from faith.
 
Amen and Amen.
 
In His Wisdom,
