WALKING IN THE NEW ERA OF GOD’S GLORY – as our Father’s family and ecclesia

God has sovereignly moved upon the earth and this is gloriously evident across Australia and amongst us locally.

We invite you to enter God’s abundant life. (Isaiah 55 TPT) This paper gives a taste of what we are hearing and walking in. Feast on the additional links if you are hungry to walk in God’s Glory.

1. Will you enter God’s glorious fullness in this new era?

Dutch Sheets says this era is a fullness of time – as when Jesus came as a babe – because the fullness of Christ can now be evidenced on earth through us as Jesus’ family & ecclesia. In this era we will work with Heaven to fulfill Christ’s purpose – to gather Jesus’ Harvest and see His kingdom release His glory on earth. 

We enter this glorious kingdom era as little children. To be free to move like children, we need to surrender to God our old perspectives, paradigms, programs, prayer patterns, worship preferences and prestigious positions. Enjoy being free from man’s agenda and glory! (Psalm 16, John 12:43) Enjoy yielding like children who are open, vulnerable, trusting, restful and obedient.

2 Corinthians 3:17-18 “Now, the “Lord” I’m referring to is the Holy Spirit, and wherever he is Lord, there is freedom. We can all draw close to him with the veil removed from our faces. And with no veil we all become like mirrors who brightly reflect the glory of the Lord Jesus. We are being transfigured into his very image as we move from one brighter level of glory to another. And this glorious transfiguration comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”

The Holy Spirit is the strategy and our strategist. It is crucial we all hear what God’s Spirit is saying to us, so none of us miss out and so we each align to fulfill our part in what God is doing RIGHT NOW.  

John 10:3b-4 “And the sheep recognize the voice of the true Shepherd, for he calls his own by name and leads them out, for they belong to him. And… they will follow him, for they are familiar with his voice.”
If you need to God’s voice more clearly START HERE: Know My Voice.

Some, who have been faithful in prayer, have become fixed in religious habits and burdened by their patterns of prayer. Our souls  and mind sets can be held captive by religious ruts and our spirits can become disengaged – so we pray on auto pilot. God knows our needs. God needs us to align -body, soul and spirit – with Heaven to receive His glorious strategies and interventions. Try saying, “We don’t know what to do. What are you building, Lord? Show us what we are each to do.”

Jesus is inviting us to wash away our agendas with the water of His Word and the power of His blood; to take daily communion and contemplate His goodness! We are praying in the Spirit (in tongues or by waiting on the Spirit’s leading for at least an hour each day) so we hear what God is saying and can pray in agreement with God’s perspective and authority. So we can pray as One with others; and obey the momentary leading of the Spirit; and live under Jesus’ Headship, in glorious harmony with His body on earth. (Psalm 110 TPT depicts this!)

2. Will you be one with God – His family in this new era?

In this new era God’s grace is enabling us to be one with God and each other as His reconciled  family – so we can reveal the fullness of our Father’s love to the world.

Ephesians 1:7,9-10 “In Him we have redemption through His blood… that in the dispensation of the fullness of time He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.”

John 17:22-23 “I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—  I in them and you in me -so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”

Some of us have been independent and alone so long – that the relief and sweetness of honouring fellowship in the Spirit with each other is overwhelmingly! We are seeing the glorious power of God’s love. People are being set free, healed and commissioned when we recognise them as God sees them and embrace as cherished members of His family.

We enter Father’s family and our glorious inheritance when we humbly position ourselves, through Christ, as the spiritual ‘sons’ of our Father, and the spiritual ‘fathers’ He has given us. This new era will activate us to fulfil our God given destiny and God’s glorious purpose. As God’s children we will reflect our Father’s likeness and bring glory to Him; and we will see the knowledge of His glory cover the earth to release abundant mercy, hope, faith and life in the darkness of our world.

3. Will you be Jesus’ ecclesia in your sphere of influence?

In this fullness of time, Jesus is being represented on earth by His ecclesia  – those citizens of His Kingdom, members of His body, who discern, agree and align with God’s will and fulfill His will here. Jesus’ ecclesia is His House of Prayer for All Peoples – revealing Jesus fully so the world sees Him as He is; releasing God’s kingdom – for His reformation & transformation of the earth.

In this era, God calls us all to step into the opportunities and authority He has given us in our assigned spheres. Some have been silenced by bowing to man’s authority. As gatekeepers, we cannot remain silent. We are to speak the Word of the Lord at the gates we watch over – to the people and places where we have influence.

Some of us have operated a long time as lone watchmen & gatekeepers, prophets, evangelists – unrecognised, uncommissioned and unsupported by the offerings and tithes that flow to teachers and pastors.

In this new era local ecclesia are representing the fullness of Jesus by functioning maturely in all five-fold graces of Christ. Dutch says this is now happening for the first time since the early church. We are astonished at the authority, power, freedom and joy being released as these graces of Christ flow through our real relationships in apostolic team. It is glorious!

Ephesians 4:11-13 TPT And he has appointed some with grace to be apostles, and some with grace to be prophets, and some with grace to be evangelists, and some with grace to be pastors, and some with grace to be teachers. And their calling is to nurture and prepare all the holy believers to do their own works of ministry, and as they do this they will enlarge and build up the body of Christ.  These grace ministries will function until we all attain oneness in the faith, until we all experience the fullness of what it means to know the Son of God, and finally we become one perfect man with the full dimensions of spiritual maturity and fully developed in the abundance of Christ.”

4. Will you enter the Kingdom heaven NOW on earth? 

Tim Sheets teaches that in this new era, Heaven is aligned to earth – like the opening birth canal – birthing plans & purposes of God that have been incubating in God’s presence. There is rapid fulfillment of prophetic words and accelerated answers to prayer.

We are invited to come boldly to God’s throne of grace and in resistant matters, to seek God’s swift judgement in the courts of heaven. If you are not familiar with this See: The Power of Prayer in the Courts of Heaven.

We are being called into God’s operating system – his strategic assignment and specific timing, steps and provision. Some of these involve assignments that are stirring up ancient wells of revival for harvest breakthrough. God has Heaven fighting our battles for us! Worship is a significant weapon in this era. With heaven we are declare our awe, adoration and gratitude for the mercies of our Holy God in all kinds of hidden and public places!  See: Worship on the Mountains

In this new era God’s assignment are accompanied by angelic activity at a level unprecedented in our life time. God is opening our eyes and ears to this so we can appreciate what Heaven is doing and align more closely in partnership with Him.

Glorious indeed! It is a great time to be partners in prayer & evangelism!
