Three Stranded Cord!
It’s day 34; 34 represents endurance (Genesis 22) Abraham continually pressed toward the promise the Lord had spoken to him. He was greatly blessed for his faith and his seed (us) was granted the gates of their enemies. We are in Christ and therefore are Abraham's seed according to the promise. (Gal.3:29)
Heirs According to the Promise
Gen 22:15-17 Then the angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time from heaven, and said, "By Myself I have sworn, declares the LORD, because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son, your only son, indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your seed shall possess the gate of their enemies.
Judah is God's Scepter
Genesis 49:9 - 10 "Judah is a lion's whelp; From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He couches, he lies down as a lion, And as a lion, who dares rouse him up? "The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes, And to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.
Psalms 108:8...Judah is My scepter / Judah is more than praise (worship music); it’s an apostolic war tribe.
A Three Stranded Cord Is Need
I had a vision in 2007; suspended in the air in the middle of my office were written these words; ‘A Three Stranded Cord Is Needed’ Then the Lord said; “in order for California to shift in this next season there will need to be apostles, prophets and intercession / worshippers with sound working together.” I believe we are in the season for this prophetic vision to be realized.
Due to the vision it’s my wholehearted belief that the Lord is calling forth an apostolic prophetic troop who move with the sounds of heaven – A Judah Company in this state. The vision has since been confirmed by multiple prophetic ministers. Although we don’t presently have this network of apostolic prophetic intercessory sound releasing troop but they’re coming, they’re coming!
A Judah company consists of apostles, prophets and worshippers with sound often accompanied by intercessors.
- We need these 3 groups connecting together in order to see California shift into her God ordained destiny.
Apostolic: a delegate / a sent one, an expedition, campaign, military service, warfare, to fight…The apostolic has to do with authority, power, and the right to act on behalf of another, putting in order; its nature is warfare.
I’ve been in ministry for over thirty four years, the last twenty three in California and the concept of apostles has been a very touchy topic.
Ephesians 4:11-12 says, And He (Jesus) Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
I choose to believe this scripture is still active. What has been a real eye opener is not whether people believe there are apostles but how many apostles can be in a given area; this has often brought much confusion and division in the Body of Christ.
1 Corinthians 9:1-2 Am I not an apostle? Am I not free? Have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord? If I am not an apostle to others, yet doubtless I am to you. For you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord.
This scripture reveals there can be many apostles in the Body of Christ, each one has their assigned sphere and those who are under their authority or in their sphere of influence.
I believe the problem isn’t with having several apostles in a region / state but with people wanting to be ‘the’ apostle’ of a city, a region, or the state instead of ‘a’ apostle. One little word ‘the’ has caused so much division.
If we are going to see this ‘three stranded cord’ come to fruition we must lay aside our need to be ‘the one’ and instead desire to be ‘a one’ so the apostles can connect together for kingdom purposes in the state.
- Prophetic: to perceive, speak or sing by inspiration, prophesy, seer of visions. True prophets hear God’s voice and timing, and are needed in this ‘three stranded cord’. Often however they tend to be lone rangers and move contradictory to a united company.
Prophetic people sense when the Lord is moving in their midst and want to express what they see and hear. Unfortunately, prophetic people / intercessors often don’t understand timing and authority so they move out of God’s time and are misunderstood.
In this hour, the Lord is maturing his prophets and prophetic intercessors. He is showing them their need to connect with apostles and worshippers with sound. As they connect they will see and experience what their hearts have been longing for; a kingdom people who hear and see what the Lord is declaring from heaven.
- Worshippers with sound: those who lead this sound movement (worship times) and those who join in understand how sound splits open, removes obstacles, and breaks open the way.
- Abar / H5674 to pass over or by or through, bring across, carry, do away march over, overflow, take away, traverse, proclaim. to impregnate. [See Lev. 25:9]
- qol /H6963: to call aloud, sing, proclamations, lightness, frivolity thunder
- rua / H7321: to shout a war-cry or alarm of battle; to split the ears; make a joyful noise; triumph
These worshippers may start with songs we know but will connect into the Spirit and begin releasing sounds that cause people and places to pass over, overflow, proclaim, become impregnated with the Word of God these sounds will break open and unlock people and regions.
One of the key things we need to understand is Biblical gifts are about function not value. One gift isn’t better than another the gifts differ according to the function that has been assigned to them. As we come to understand this principle we won’t jockey for a position or gift that has not been assigned to us. All gifts whether from Holy Spirit (I Cor 12), the Father (Rom. 12) or Jesus are for the purpose of extending God’s Kingdom…ALL are NEEDED!
Read: I Cor. 12:4-11; Rom. 4: 4-8; Ephesians 4:1-16
Take Action: It’s time the Body of Christ come together to Shift California!
- Take your place, its time to run to march in formation and not seek others rank but march As one! (Joel 2)
- It’s time to plunder the gates of hell and see captives set free, land healed and reformation manifest in the land.
Declare: Holy Spirit gave gifts, the Father gave gifts, Jesus gave gifts…I will operate in my God given gifts and not seek to function outside my sphere of authority. My value is not based on my gifting; I am a Kings kid!
