“There’s a voice and witness about to be released to My remnant people. First to, then from, in and then out.”
I believe He was speaking of a reformation, and perhaps it is already happening to you. God is calling out a remnant He is separating for a reformation to bring forth His glorious Bride. It’s so wonderful to be part of what the Holy Spirit is doing today.
By expounding on this prophecy, my purpose is to edify you so you can boldly step out in obedience.
Prior to God giving you a voice and witness, something powerful will happen to you. His witness impartation doesn’t come without supernatural power. The power that comes with it, will carry you and will back you up as you obey Him, especially amidst persecution.
The ones Jesus chose to be the His first witnesses, were given many incredible infallible proofs of His resurrection. Many saw Him alive for days after the resurrection. Don’t you think that experience gave them strong fortitude, as they became eye-witnesses that He truly and beyond a shadow of a doubt defeated death, hell and the grave?
The twelve apostles experienced Him more intimately than others. They were fed with the very Word of life daily, encountering the Lord of Glory as He ministered with power to people. Don’t you think this helped them significantly, seeing and doing the healings and miracles themselves as Jesus trained them?
After He finished their training another powerful experience with God happen to them. The promise of the Father, the Holy Spirit came on them with power from on high and gave them a voice and a witness that impacted nations everywhere they went.
The voice and the witness comes through the baptism in Holy Spirit, to add to you what you’ve been lacking. A missing dimension, a new measure of effectiveness and advancement in the Kingdom of God.
It is a holy unction in you, that teaches you what to speak, that puts you in the right place at the right time. It is the anointing that abides. (1 John 2:20-27)
It happened to Jesus’ first disciples and it will happen to you. This doing is by the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, He (the Spirit of Truth) will testify of me, and you too will testify of me. (John 15:26-27) Not for your sake will He do it, but for His glory. Not to build your kingdom, but His Kingdom.
The Power to Manifest Kingdom Reality
The Kingdom of God governs everything through the will and purposes of God by faith. The Holy Spirit brings God’s reality and truth to every situation, and His calling voice will awaken you to Kingdom reality to see things from God’s perspective. He is the Spirit of truth, not error, so trust Him. The Holy Spirit will lead us into truth and reveal Jesus more and more to us.
Discern these two realities: Kingdom reality and the world’s reality.
Which reality are you living in?
Our God’s reality subdues the natural reality.
Much of what is in this present world is not the will of the Father. We as reformers are to pray that “His will be done as it is in heaven so let it be on earth”, as Jesus taught us to do. I believe, that also means to manifest God’s reality here and now through His Name, His Word (the Bible) and the power of the Holy Spirit.
Sickness, diseases, demons, death, fear, depression, etc. aren’t part of God’s Kingdom. As we bring the Gospel to people we also bring them freedom from sin and out of captivity to the enemy’s reality. Can you see this?
Come Out Of The Babylonian Church Structures
You, as a reforming remnant can no longer be contained, confined, constricted and constrained within the four walls of Babylonian church structures.
Once you hear His reforming voice you will be challenged to break free from everything that is not from God, including religious systems and traditions of man. You will face this question within you, “Do I obey God or man?” Depending how you answer this question and what you do about it will determine your destiny. You might be persecuted, and face a desert or wilderness period in your life when you obey God. All hell might break out against you. But if you trust Him through it all, He will bring you out in hope and victory having strengthened you to represent Him.
Therefore, come out from among them!
God had to call Moses out of Egypt to prepare him to be a voice.
God took Abraham out of Chaldea to bring forth from his loins a people of His own.
Why are you trying to rescue religious sects? Come out from among them! God is calling out His ecclesia, of which you are a part if you obey Him. Focus on what God is doing, not what religion is building.
God made John the Baptizer a voice crying out in the wilderness. People were compelled to leave their comfort zones and move into the direction of his voice. John’s voice was drawing them and pointing them to Jesus.
John carried the voice. He lived an unusual lifestyle, he ate locusts and wild honey. No baby back ribs, angus beef burgers, whole foods market etc… No, the voice and witness in his spirit demanded a lifestyle that was appropriate for the power that accompanied the voice. So while you don’t need to dress like him or eat locusts and wild honey, you will have to pay the price of being a disciple of Jesus – which is to deny self, to take up your cross, and follow Him. Are you willing to suffer for Him?
Be like John in this way also, he waited for the day of his revealing to be a voice … Then, when it was time to release the witness God gave him, “Prepare ye the way of The Lord. Make His paths straight….” he didn’t hold back, and neither will you.
Consider the witness of the Father. The voice of Father God in the four Gospels is continually saying, “This is my beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased, listen to Him.” Please note that His voice pointed people to His Son, not to Apostle Peter, Apostle John, or Apostle Paul. Do you understand this?
We Have His Voice for a Confirmation.
That voice and witness gives a strong calling and confirmation to go, represent God, and speak with His words to the people. Read Isaiah 6:5-9.
The voice of the Lord is powerful, majestic; It breaks demonic powers, it strikes evil, and it shakes what is not of Him. Read Psalm 29 for a glimpse of the power of His voice.
You Are My Witnesses, Says the Lord.
All the nations gather together and the peoples assemble. Which of their gods foretold this and proclaimed to us the former things? Let them bring in their witnesses to prove they were right, so that others may hear and say, “It is true.”
“You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am He. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me.
I, even I, am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior. I have revealed and saved and proclaimed—I, and not some foreign god among you. You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “that I am God. Yes, and from ancient days I am he. No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse it?” Isaiah 40:9-13
A witness offers a testimony, a record, it confirms the evidence, and it demonstrates the truth. Are you ready to go and do it?
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Matthew 24:14
The Gospel of the Kingdom of God should effectively be preached with that voice and that witness in the world. As His reforming remnant let’s obey God’s voice, and go!
