David's in the field
I was asked to say what I saw for the church in Australia in the coming season at the Peace international Apostolic Summit in Rockhampton tonight, following is an extended version of what I shared:
"The people of this world are acutely aware of Chronos (natural, linear) time, however as kingdom people we are to discern the Kairos timing of God on the earth.
“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;”
Hebrews 1:1-2 NKJV
A new day had dawned upon the earth through the arrival of Gods' Son in Christ. A new Kairos season/time had dawned on the church and she needed to hear the speaking of God through this new context.
The pioneering stage of this apostolic - prophetic reformation has transitioned into the establishing stage of the work.
We live in a key moment in this nation with regards to God's purposes in the release and expansion of the apostolic - prophetic reformation across the land.
We as a nation have had the apostolic season breaking in upon us for over 20 years and as a church in the nation we have in general been resistant to this move except for some small pockets of embrace and migration amongst some churches and ministries.
This season of leanness is now over and the next 20 or so years will not be a repeat of the last 20.
Many David's in the fields will begin to emerge across this nation, they will be men and women whom God has nurtured and developed in the back fields of the kingdom out of sight.
“Thus Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel. And Samuel said to Jesse, “The LORD has not chosen these.” And Samuel said to Jesse, “Are all the young men here?” Then he said, “There remains yet the youngest, and there he is, keeping the sheep.” And Samuel said to Jesse, “Send and bring him. For we will not sit down till he comes here.””
I Samuel 16:10-11 NKJV
Their hearts have been tested and their integrity proven towards the Lord through seasons of loneliness and obscurity.
God will begin to sovereignly link these emerging champions in the Lord relationally, they will begin to find one another and stand with with each other, accelerating the work of God in reformation dramatically.
“Then the Spirit came upon Amasai, chief of the captains, and he said: “ We are yours, O David; We are on your side, O son of Jesse! Peace, peace to you, And peace to your helpers! For your God helps you.” So David received them, and made them captains of the troop.”
I Chronicles 12:18 NKJV
As a result of this apostolic synergy many who begin to migrate into this move of God and will be upgraded and configured at a much greater speed than those who embraced this move in the pioneering stage.
“And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, ‘Why have you been standing here idle all day?’ They said to him, ‘Because no one hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right you will receive.’
saying, ‘These last men have worked only one hour, and you made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the heat of the day.’
So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen.””
Matthew 20:6-7, 12, 16 NKJV
This will manifest itself in a mighty releasing dimension upon the saints, sending them powerfully into the marketplace equipped, anointed and configured to become champions in the land!
“Now these were the heads of the mighty men whom David had, who strengthened themselves with him in his kingdom, with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of the LORD concerning Israel.”
I Chronicles 11:10 NKJV
