No, intercessors are not being called out of the closets to enter into power moves as kingdom leaders. Nothing new has happened that redefines the role and responsibility of intercessors. Nothing new will or can happen that alters the assignments of watchman; they must remain positioned in their assignments.
1. Intercessors have always been believers who could at any moment pray for the sick, set people free, and release miracles. They have always been people of power because Holy Spirit lives in them. That has not changed.
2. Intercessors are not leaders. On the other hand, all kingdom leaders are intercessors in every way they partner with and represent Jesus, the Intercessor. Nothing new has happened that changes that reality. Intercessors do not need to become leaders in order to do powerful things, say powerful words, or do powerful deeds. That has not changed.
3. Intercessors never graduate from the closet to the platform. Intercessory assignments are not the graduated step ladder or staircase to "higher calling." Intercessors do not receive awarded positions of leadership for being faithful in intercession. They are intercessors. If they are leaders, they become leaders by the same process as every else. They do not have some special intercessory prayer warriors process that leads to becoming an apostle.
4. Intercessors are not entering a new season in which they no longer get pregnant, labor, and give birth. All kingdom citizens should be capable of this function, but an "intercessor" is an intercessor. If you say, this intercessor is finally going to step into leadership, they were not "just an intercessor" in the first place! They were in training for the leadership function to which they were called. This has not changed.
5. Intercessors should ignore recruiting prophecies from network building opportunists who prophecy that they are going to become the next Billy Graham or Oral Roberts as a reward for faithful intercession. That level of witchcraft distraction is the very last thing we need right now when Jesus is refreshing His intercessors and resetting the movement for the new Era.
6. Intercessors have already been abused and used by networking schemes long enough. The new thing is that God is jealous for His intercessors! They belong to Him in a very special way! He is stepping between them and those that put a brand on their haunches. (I wouldn't step between God and His claim on His intercessors right now!)
7. Intercessors have been powerful. Intercessors are powerful now. Intercessors will experience the same increase that the entire kingdom Ecclesia receives when we begin to function in the original design and definition of Ecclesia.
Disorder and Distraction
The main strategy of hell to empty the kingdom of intercession is distraction. The main point of leadership in intercession is direction. On the other hand, the vast majority of the work done in intercession is spiritual in nature. Spiritual pregnancy does not require extensive expertise and experience, and the young and old enter into it with equal ease.
Holy Spirit Himself intercedes within us to produce.
Creation groans and cannot produce purpose; the land requires a people to produce purpose. The people who can produce purpose in the land are the inheritors of purpose. We groan and cannot produce purpose because we do not know how to pray what is necessary. Holy Spirit helps us.
God groans within us to produce purpose.
The leadership intercessors need is leadership that protects them from disorder and distraction so they can get pregnant in the spirit and give birth with their mouths.
A prophet who prophesies intercessors out of the closets is telling Holy Spirit to go somewhere else to groan!
