The Kingdom of God and the Waters

12.10.2020, Daniel Glimm


As God's people we need to comprehend and move within the structure of the Kingdom, which is of different levels of the heavens, as these levels are attached to the element of water. This is revealed by the Hebrew word ‘mamlākāh’, which is used for the term ‘Kingdom’.
 
This Hebrew word begins twice with the Hebrew letter ‘Mem’, which among other things is connected with ‘water’ and has the numerical value of ‘40’. The Hebrew word for ‘water’ used in the Word of God is ‘Majim’ and is only used in the plural form. It begins with the Hebrew letter ‘Mem’ and ends with it. (note: part excerpt from the Elberfelder Study Bible to the word mamlākāh – kingdom’ with the word key number: 4542)
 
The two beginning Hebrew letters of ‘Mem’ that are used in the Hebrew word for ‘kingdom’ refer to the principle that our soul (note: will, emotions and mind) must be properly submitted to the spirit in order to be able to govern effectively, which means to implement God's plans according to His will on earth (cf. Galatians 5:16-17).
 
Galatians 5:16-17:
16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh.
They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.
 
It is no coincidence that the report of creation is connected with the Spirit of God hovering above the waters and that there is also a crystal sea before the throne of God (cf. Genesis 1:1-2; Revelation 4:6).
 
Genesis 1:1-2:
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
 
Revelation 4:6:
6 Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back.
 
The Water and the Call to Govern
 
From this it is evident that each level of heaven carries a region of water that is related to the mandate to govern. In order to act in the government as a Son of God in Christ, the phase of testing as well as the completion of this is of great significance, which is connected with the number ‘40’.
 
The reason for this is because Jesus Christ, after being baptized in the Jordan by John the Baptist, went into the desert full of the Spirit and there underwent a 40-day test by being tempted by the devil, but without falling into sin and withstanding evil (cf. Luke 4:1-2a i.c.w. Hebrews 4:15).
 
Luke 4:1-2a:
1 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
2 where for forty days he was tempted by the devil.
 
Hebrews 4:15:
15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are – yet he did not sin.
 
The structure of kingship is closely related to each one of the twelve tribes of Israel, because through obedience God gave them the opportunity to be a kingdom of priests. Each tribe of Israel carries within itself a spiritual dimension of heaven, which is accompanied by an area of ‘water’, which includes spiritual government, since God is Spirit (cf. Exodus 19:5-6 i.c.w. John 4:24a).
 
Exodus 19:5-6:
“… 5 Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, 6 you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.”
 
John 4:24a:
24a God is spirit, …
 
There is a reason why God instructed Moses and Joshua to lead the people of Israel through various regions of water, which were first the Red Sea and then the Jordan River. It was the opposing waters that responded to the guidance of the ‘sons of water’ by standing upright to clear the way for the people of God into the new level (cf. Exodus 14:16.21-22; Joshua 3:13-17).
 
Exodus 14:16.21-22:
16 Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground. …
21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, 22 and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.
 
Joshua 3:13-17:
13 And as soon as the priests who carry the ark of the Lord – the Lord of all the earth – set foot in the Jordan, its waters flowing downstream will be cut off and stand up in a heap.”
14 So when the people broke camp to cross the Jordan, the priests carrying the ark of the covenant went ahead of them.
15 Now the Jordan is at flood stage all during harvest. Yet as soon as the priests who carried the ark reached the Jordan and their feet touched the water’s edge, 16 the water from upstream stopped flowing. It piled up in a heap a great distance away, at a town called Adam in the vicinity of Zarethan, while the water flowing down to the Sea of the Arabah (that is, the Dead Sea) was completely cut off. So the people crossed over opposite Jericho.
17 The priests who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord stopped in the middle of the Jordan and stood on dry ground, while all Israel passed by until the whole nation had completed the crossing on dry ground.
 
The name ‘Moses’ means ‘He who was drawn out of the water’, whereby Joshua was a son of ‘Nun’, which means ‘fish’, who served Moses before he was given the commission to finally lead the people of Israel into the promise (cf. Exodus 2:10; Exodus 33:11b).
 
Exodus 2:10:
10 When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moses, saying, “I drew him out of the water.”
 
Exodus 33:11b:
… 11b Then Moses would return to the camp, but his young aide Joshua son of Nun did not leave the tent.
 
Since, according to the report of creation, the waters and the Spirit of God were already present in the ‘ärätẓ area’ (note: spiritual dimension of the earth before the fall of man), while this was surrounded by ‘Rahab’, the ancient chaos, due to the demonic presence, it is required to cooperate with the Spirit of prophecy in order to bring light into the darkness and establish order in the realms of chaos in a royal way (cf. Genesis 1:3-5 i.c.w. 2 Peter 1:19).
 
Genesis 1:3-5:
3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.
5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning – the first day.
 
2 Peter 1:19:
19 We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
 
The Word of God reveals that without revelation there is perishing or chaos in the society of the people (see Proverbs 29:18a).
 
Proverbs 29:18a:
18a Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; …
 
It is the power of God's revelation, in the form of Jesus' testimony that brings separation between light and darkness in order to establish a new day (cf. Revelation 19:10e)
 
Revelation 19:10e:
10e For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.”
 
Beyond this, it is the presence of the Word of God and the presence of His Spirit, accompanied by revelatory power to bring forth the realm of revelatory truth that separates the unenlightened from the enlightened.
 
As a result, the resisting power ‘Rahab’, which wants to manipulate the ‘water’ (e.g. society, economy as a dimension of government) of the spiritual dimension to bring chaos, is confronted and restrained.
 
The Spiritual Power of ‘Rahab’
 
Rahab is the name for the mythical sea monster as the epitome of the ungodly power and means ‘raging, boisterous’ (cf. Job 9:13; Job 26:12; Psalm 89:11; Isaiah 51:9). It is also applied to Egypt as the enemy of the people of God (cf. Psalm 87:4; Isaiah 30:7). Rahab is a chaos monster shown as a sea serpent and is also thought to be a kind of personification of the life-threatening sea. (note: partial excerpt from CD-ROM Bible Edition, Luther Bible 1984 No. 03/07, word explanation 18,12)
 
Rahab contains the influence of hidden evil power (note: e.g.: activated by occultism as well as the worship of zodiac/active practice of astrology; cf. Job 3:8), which causes fear of dangers from the past, pride, cruelty, brutality, cunning, destruction, false religion, delusion and deception.
 
At this point it should be noted that it was the waters of the Reed Sea at the time of Moses that had to submit to the command of the outstretched staff, whereby the waters of the Jordan responded to the appearance of the priestly presence of God under the leadership of Joshua.
 
The simple wooden staff is a reference to Jesus' victorious death on the cross, while the gold-covered ark of the covenant, made of acacia wood, indicates the glorious presence of Jesus Christ as the Risen One. Jesus Christ is the Word, the manna and the guidance (cf. Hebrews 9:4-5a i.c.w. John 1:14; John 6:35a; John 10:27)!
 
Hebrews 9:4-5a:
… 4 which had the golden altar of incense and the gold-covered ark of the covenant. This ark contained the gold jar of manna, Aaron’s staff that had budded, and the stone tablets of the covenant.
5a Above the ark were the cherubim of the Glory, overshadowing the atonement cover. …
 
John 1:14:
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
 
John 6:35a:
35a Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. …”
 
John 10:27:
27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
 
It is therefore no coincidence that Jesus Christ appears in various facets in the throne room of God, where the crystal sea is located, e.g. as the Lamb of God standing as if it had been slain at the center of the throne as well as the Son of God sitting at the right hand of God (cf. Revelation 5:6; Colossians 3:1).

Revelation 5:6:
6 Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.

Colossians 3:1:
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.

It is crucial that we move forward in the Sonship of Christ and apply His reign of government with the revelatory truth of the Word of God against the resisting forces of darkness, who make use of the element of water for their own purposes.
 
At the same time we allow the Father to intervene for our cause in the face of the dark forces that only He can tame. This is evident in the conversation between God and Job, who asked him whether he could tame Behemoth or even Leviathan (cf. Job 40:15.24; Job 41:1).
 
Job 40:15.24:
15 “Look at Behemoth, which I made along with you and which feeds on grass like an ox. …”
24 Can anyone capture it by the eyes, or trap it and pierce its nose?
 
Job 41:1:
1 “Can you pull in Leviathan with a fishhook or tie down its tongue with a rope? …”
 
It is almost certain that Job would have answered ‘No!’ to these questions.

The creatures just mentioned are demonic spiritual forces that are connected with ‘the water’ (note: a level of spiritual government in the respective heavens) and are out to hinder the people of God on their way into the promise of God.

The Spiritual Force of Behemoth

Behemoth is a term which in Hebrew refers to a gigantic monster. In Egyptian it is called p-ehe-mau = water ox, which is supposed to refer to the river hippopotamus (see Job 40:15). The name ‘Behemoth’ is the plural of the word ‘animal, cattle’. It also refers to the buffalo.
In Isaiah 30:6, the ‘Behemoth of the south’ is a symbol of Egypt, which is becoming thick and broad (note: represents the world with its influences). According to its root, the name means ‘baham’ => closed, dumb, stupid, in contrast to the reasonable, talking man (cf. Proverbs 18:2; Ecclesiastes 10:3.5; the stupid/foolish man speaks many words that are supposed to help to silence the saint).

When the Behemoth appears in prophetic contexts, it points to a power of darkness under which people stand who have joined together to mock the saints or God's plans (cf. Psalm 22:13).
This union of darkness occurs under the influence of ‘Behemoth’ (cf. Job 40:15-24), that resides where no clear and definite sanctification is preached.

This dark alignment loves to dwell in muddy waters (note: compromise with the world, uncleanness, cunning), only to suddenly appear mockingly (cf. Job 40:20-21) and give a false view of things, which leads to mockingly talking about the new plans God is making. Behemoth is a constraining force that is meant to intimidate and keep saints in fear so that they do not enter the field of their destiny (cf. Psalm 22:12-16).

The Spiritual Force of Leviathan

=> The Leviathan is an agile animal and a ruling principality of the serpent family, which has its spiritual dominion in connection with the dragon. A dragon-like creature of the old, which represents the devil and symbolizes mystical intelligence and brutal action. The Leviathan of the Ancient was a being living in water, representing the cruel and absolute forces of nature.
 
It is also equivalent to chaos and is spiritually the composition of ‘Dracos’, who was adopted as the spiritual authority over ancient Babylon. He was also recognized in the ancient world as the ‘Lady’ of the sea, in connection with Revelation 17:1. In the spiritual realm, Leviathan cooperates with the region by the water (cf. Job 41:31-32; Revelation 12:3; Revelation 13:1). The Leviathan discourse of Job 41allegorically depicts a sphere of spiritual power and human experience where pride rules as the Leviathan governor over the children of pride. False religion, illusion and delusion are accompanying features of this ‘demonic’ creature's power. Dinosaurs, lizards and crocodiles are other forms of this threatening, seductive creature.
 
The Leviathan was also called ‘Lotan’ in old Canaan, which reflected ‘Tiamet’, the goddess figure (demon) of Chaos. The fleeting serpent is also called Leviathan in the scriptures.
Leviathan was also an ancient Ugaritic dragon. It is the symbol of sea monsters and aquatic chaos as well as a symbol of the deep abyss.

He is the spawn of the Zodiac (note: ‘Zodiac’ is the word for the worshipped twelve stars and the planets through unenlightened astrology).
 
The Hebrew word for serpent beings in the Bible is ‘tanniym’ and describes the dragon.
Crocodiles (alligators) can also symbolize evil from the past (note: original sin), danger or destruction. <= (note: The word explanation set in ‘=>’ is based on a word definition of the word ‘Leviathan’ from the ‘Prophet’s Dictionary’ by Dr. Paula Price; pages 308 and 309)

Furthermore, ‘Behemoth’ can also stand for a financial system in which the children of pride move with the idea of Leviathan and rob the wealth of the people to create chaos (note: Rahab) in society as well as in the economy.

Ruling Over the Waters

It is therefore essential that we, as the kingdom people of God advance in the victory of Christ, applying it by decreeing God's plans through the power of revelatory truth, so that through the hand of God these powers of darkness may be tamed and dispersed (cf. Isaiah 27:1; Job 26:12; Psalm 89:10; Isaiah 51:9).

Isaiah 27:1:
1 In that day, the Lord will punish with his sword – his fierce, great and powerful sword – Leviathan the gliding serpent, Leviathan the coiling serpent; he will slay the monster of the sea.

Job 26:12:
12 By his power he churned up the sea; by his wisdom he cut Rahab to pieces.

Psalm 89:10:
10 You crushed Rahab like one of the slain; with your strong arm you scattered your enemies.

Isaiah 51:9:
9 Awake, awake, arm of the Lord, clothe yourself with strength! Awake, as in days gone by, as in generations of old. Was it not you who cut Rahab to pieces, who pierced that monster through?

Prophetic Word

In connection with this message, I was reminded of the prophetic word from the 31’st of August 2017, which I would like to re-post here as a decree. For every saint who has a confirmation in his heart concerning this word I would like to encourage you to come in agreement with this by decreeing it.
 
PROPHESIED ON THE 31’st OF AUGUST 2017 | 09’th OF ELUL 5777, HOLY PLACE BERLIN-SPANDAU
 
The way in which the Lord has spoken to you is changing! There is a transformation! There is a metamorphosis taking place in your communication!
Even the communication between you and other people is about to change dramatically! What you speak, men will understand, says the spirit of the prophet!
And the LORD says: ‘Do not fear the Behemoth, nor be afraid of Leviathan. I will show My power! I'll touch Behemoth! I'll touch him! I'll touch him! I touch his eyes! I'll touch him in the eye! No one can do this but I can!
I do it through My power! I have weapons to touch powers and destroy powers and principalities! My weapons are spiritual weapons! My weapons are not of this world, but My weapons are of My world! They have a destructive effect on all evil patterns in this world! I touch Behemoth with My finger, but I will attack Leviathan with My weapons!’
The LORD says: ‘I have a hook! I have a string! I have a thorn! I have a rope! I have a harpoon! I will break this power! Invincible power for men but affordable power for Me!
There's an unbreakable shell, but I'll break it! The spirits of the ages are trying to stop it, but I AM coming to break through! I'll even change the way it lives! I will even change the way it breathes, because I will take a hook! I'll take a hook!’
The LORD says: ‘I will take a hook! I am coming through My Church as the Ancient of Days! I'll come and take the hook! I'll grab it by the nose (see Job 40:15-24; Job 41:1-34)!’
I will show My glory great, says the Lord (see Haggai 2:9)! I'll show it on the basis of My intervention towards Leviathan and Behemoth! I change vision and I change lives!
There's a change in perspective and a change in lifestyle!
I'm breaking through this impenetrable ‘protection’! I even break through the sound barrier – the sounds of the ancient evil forces over time and periods of time!
It's about contracts, curses and agreements!
I break through the ceiling of evil and make it burst like glass! And that will be the beginning of My glory on earth! What I do in the heavens is the breakthrough of My glory on earth, says the Lord.
The reason why I attack Behemoth and Leviathan is because I am proving My power!
The GREAT ONE shows His power, says the spirit of the prophet!
I will use the power of My Church to do this through My Word! And that's the revelatory truth! My church grabs the eye of Behemoth and attacks Leviathan and grabs him! It (Behemot/Leviathan) is the power that tried My Sound of Righteousness and My Words of Justice to tear to the ground! I won't allow it to drag it down! The earth can't swallow My righteousness! The earth won't swallow it! The depth will not swallow it! But I speak to the surface and the surface will open its mouth! And I will remove all saliva of evil! I will command the earth to devour it! Curse to curse and blessing to blessing, says the LORD! And in these days you will see the difference between the righteous and the wicked because I show My glory great (see Malachi 3:18)!
Look at the broken glass on earth! I will reflect My glory through the broken glass! I will show My glory through the communities!
People say and ask: ‘Why is the water so destructive?!’ And the Lord says: ‘Because I will show My glory great! The evil one is trying to destroy!’ But I say: ‘Look at the water and look at the sun! I will reflect My glory! It is about My glory in places where it has never been before! I will spill over with My Glory!
First I establish justice, and then I come with My glory!
Understand WHO I AM! I'm in control! I'm in control!’
One touch and then an attack! One touch and then an attack! This is the strategy of the Most High to show His power in a great way! Gadol! This power is far too great for us to be able to hold it in ourselves alone! God's capacity is so much greater than the capacity we have! It is a full and shaken measure, says the spirit of the prophet (see Luke 6:38)!
The LORD says to His church: ‘I don't want to see that you have different measurements. I don't want you to have a smaller and bigger measure in your heart!’
The LORD says: ‘I want you to have a great measure. The smaller dimension is connected with the past!
Don't stay in the past! Don't take them with you, because what I have is greater!
Don't take two different measurements with you!
Don't have a weight which is too small for My capacity!
I don't want you to have ‘a kilo’! I want you to have ‘a thousand kilos’!
Because the essence that I want to give you will be far more weighty than the weight that you have when you have too little! If your measure is too small, My measure will have a destructive effect on you!
It's important that you have the right amount of truth! Because what I bring in with My Spirit is so great and precious! It's holy! Don't take the old measure of the past and keep it that way! Don't talk about the vision of the past! Don't talk from the perspective of the past!
My men and women of God have come and gone!
There was a coming and going! It's the phase of letting things go! Let it go, for what I bring is greater than what was before!
I want you to have the right truth which is the spirit-filled truth!
Do not have the letter, but have the Spirit and the letter (see 2 Corinthians 3:6)! It is revelatory truth that has the right and proper weight for My essence which I pour out!’
People of God, I am not talking about a liquid but about the essence of God, says the spirit of the prophet!
This is the most concentrated power! This power is so great but it uses little things! It is so big that it only needs a drop of it to forgive, to heal and to destroy!
Humility and greatness are close together (see Matthew 25:23 i.c.w. James 4:10)!
Foolishness and wisdom are close together! That, what is foolishness for the world is wisdom for God (see 1 Corinthians 1:18)!
He's coming in a big way! A little hook and a tamed Leviathan! Just a hook!
Only one small finger nudge on the eye of Behemot causes a big, big change on the earth!
Don't be afraid of Behemoth! Don't be afraid of Leviathan! Don't be afraid of the river! Don't fear the sea! Do not be afraid of the economy! Do not be afraid of the society because there is a touch and an ‘attack’ of God!
I am talking about a global touch, the touch of the seven continents! It's about nations! It's about race! It's about languages! It's about tongues!
God's presence, the presence of the Father, the royal presence of the Father hovers above the earthly realm! Behemoth and Leviathan will be touched and attacked.’
 
Amen and Amen.
 
In His Wisdom,
 
Daniel Glimm
