We are entering the time where we shall see the fullness of Pentecost released with the baptism of the Spirit and with fire. The Lord is imparting the anointing that will counter everything the enemy has tried to do.
The Lion like nature of God is being imparted to His people to impart the anointing for courage, valor and victory. A whole new breed is being raised up that are champions of God that will stare the devil in the eye and not back up.
Spontaneous courage is created when we are in an environment where that courage needs to surface. (Such as David when faced with Goliath) It is often the environment that you are in that will create the catalyst for what is in you to come forth.
The seed of divine destiny is already in you. It was imparted to you before you were born. God has ordained all the grace you need to fulfill your destiny “Who has saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before the world began” (2 Timothy 1:9).
The same grace that bought your salvation also purchased your destiny. The same blood that purchased your redemption for eternal life has the power to redeem your ordained destiny in this life! Before you were born God knew you and created you. The seed for your life is foreordained already in you to fulfill your divine purpose. As you step into your ordained purpose and identity, your true destiny unfolds before you.
Most revelations come in seed form that needs to be “unpacked” before the Lord. This is a process that takes place as you walk forward that uncovers your destiny where it is refined seven times over. When you don’t give up you cannot fail!
The Cloud is Moving
This is the dawning of a new day. We are coming to the end of one season and the beginning of another. God is watching over the promise of the last season while birthing a new season. The emphasis of the Spirit right now is on a remnant of people that are being positioned for something real. As I was reading Numbers 10:28, I heard the words, Increase – Increase-Increase-Increase.
God is moving in ever increasing installments of increase. Something unprecedented is being revealed. God is about to reveal Himself in a way that He hasn’t done before. Where we have been is not where we are going.
Numbers chapter 10 is about the order that God gave to Israel and the tent of meetings for God is about to meet with us. It is about blowing the silver trumpets that calls forth the divine order that will create the increase, This order is found in the march of Israel. Whenever the glory cloud moved, Israel would break camp and march forward in a certain order as noted in Numbers 10:28 “Thus were the journeys of the children of Israel according to their armies, when they went forward.”
When the glory cloud moved, the tribes of Israel rose up and marched forward in a certain order established by God. Just as the Israelites traveled from place to place in a specific order to follow the glory cloud, the Church is about to form an army with an order that will enable her to march forward to follow His presence. The results of this will be an increase of His presence, healing power, anointing, and favor.
God is about to reveal Himself in a way that He hasn’t done before. We are not going to move randomly into the next move of God, but in a specific order. The cloud is now moving and the Lord is calling for a new order.
Roy’s Comment – Israel came out of Egypt as a disorganized mob that God organized into 12 tribes that formed the divisions of Israel’s army. God is a martial God who is mobilizing an army and He will lead it as the Lord of Hosts. This order will be formed by a people that will unite to form ranks to follow Him wherever He leads them.
Paul Keith David – The cloud is moving. As with Israel that had a tribal order when they followed the glory cloud, as we follow the order of the march of Israel, our God will increase the measure of what we are contending with.
The Order of the March of Israel
The first tribe that marched forward directly behind the glory cloud was the tribe of Judah. (Judah means praise) “In the first place went the standard of the camp of the children of Judah according to their armies…”Numbers 10:14.
The second tribe that went forward was the tribe of Issachar (10:14) and then the tribe of Zebulun (10:16). Each one of these tribes had a specific nature and characteristics that form the divine order for advancement that God is restoring today.
The Standard of Judah
The tribe of Judah marched with a standard that was raised for all to see. It is believed to be a shield with a victorious Lion on it. The Lion is a symbol of strength, courage, valor, and victory. The Lion is the famous symbol of strength, courage valor and authority. It is the emblem of victory with the overcomers anointing, a symbol of kingship and royalty and the empowerment of God for supremacy. It is the empowerment to overcome fear, unbelief, anxiety and the strongholds of the soul. It is the Lion like nature of Christ with a victorious anointing to overcome.
The Standard of Judah is being imparted now in the realm of the Spirit and you can have it!
Likewise, it will be the worshipping warriors that will go forth first that carry the Lord’s fierce lion like nature as they follow His presence. As they march forward in unity lifting up Christ as King of King and Lord of Lords, He will arise in their midst as the Lord of Hosts. In the atmosphere of worship, the ministry of healing and the miraculous will take place and all demonic powers will flee. We are coming into new realms of heavenly experiences where God moves in the atmosphere of worship.
Roy’s comment – In Numbers 10:1-5 the Lord tells Moses to make two trumpets of silver. When they were blown to sound the alarm, “the camps that lie on the east parts shall go forward.” The east represents the rising of the Sun (Son) that of a new dawn rising. The tribe of Judah always camped on the east side of the Tabernacle of Moses.
Maine is known as the Eastern gate because it is the State located the furthest East of the United States. The sun rises first upon Maine in this nation. As the army rises in praise and worship the Lord of hosts will be in her midst as Lord of Lords and King of Kings. David tells us to
“Lift up your heads oh ye gates, be lifted up ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. (8) Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. (10) Who is this King of glory? The Lord of Hosts, He is the King of glory” (Ps. 24: 7, 8 & 10).
I have seen a vision where the Church is marching forward singing a new song from the realm of heaven. The rhythm of their cadence “as one” reflects the unity of their hearts with that of the Lord and His purpose The Lord was enthroned as the Lord of Host in their midst who was high and lifted up by their praise. The atmosphere was full of the Lord’s glory, light and life. There was no fear, doubt or unbelief, only supernatural faith.
No one feared the battle to which they were marching. Their was war in the air, but within the ranks was a profound peace. The sound of their feet was like that of rolling thunder. The spiritual atmosphere was awesome as they marched forward from the place of victory knowing that their enemies were already defeated by Christ at Calvary. It was from this place of unity with the Lord of Host in their midst made this army the most fearsome army that the earth has ever witnessed.
I prophesy to the remnant in Maine and to the people of New England to rise up and come together as the army of the Lord in the unity of the Spirit –His. For each one to come together in their proper rank as God has called and ordained each one. Lift up your heads oh leaders to the throne of God in worship and the King of Glory shall come in. Open the gates for the people to enter into His presence and come together as the house of David to know the Father’s heart and from the place of His eternal love, march in unity to the cadence of His heartbeat. Then we shall see the King of Glory come in power and demonstration as Lord of Lords and King of Kings.
Back To Paul Keith Davis
The next tribe that marched forward was that of the tribe of Issachar. This tribe had the anointing to know the times and how to prepare the people. It is the understanding to know what God is doing, His purpose and intentions as noted in 2 Chronicles 12:32- And the children of Issachar, were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do;.”
The anointing of Issachar consist of the two divine natures of the Spirit of Christ as represented by the menorah with seven candles, which represents the Lampstand of God. These seven Spirits are noted in Isaiah 11:2, “And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.” The Spirit of wisdom and understanding is available to the Church today.
Roy’s Comment: Notice that the Spirit of the Lord is given in pairs. The Spirit of wisdom and understanding of Christ rested upon the sons of Issachar. They not only had the understanding to know the times, but the wisdom to prepare the people for the times. This Spirit rested upon Joseph, who not only interpreted Pharaoh’s dream of seven years of prosperity followed by seven years of famine, but the wisdom to preserve the nation and its people during the years of famine.
The Lord is releasing the spirit of understanding not only to know the times but the wisdom to build an ark that will preserve AND prosper His people in time of need. As the worshipping warriors of the tribe of Judah rise up in worship and praise, the revelatory gates of heaven will open to release the spirit of wisdom and understanding that will enable His people to rule at the gates on earth. In the midst of worship and praise, the Lord will set a table before His people and in His presence He will anoint their head with oil to rule with dominion in the presence of their enemies.
The Tribe of Zebulun
The tribe of Zebulun is all about divine order. It is about arranging relationships in such a way that a divine order exist that enable the people involved to fulfill their destiny. (Paul could not advance until he joined up with Barnabus) Every person must know the tribe they belong to and how they fit within that tribe, “But now has God set the members every one of them in the body as it has pleased Him (1 Cor. 12:18). “
The tribe of Zebulun also consisted of men of war with extraordinary courage and valor. They were expert in war being versed in all instruments of warfare. They were of one heart with a fierce determination to hold their ground and fight, refusing to give up one inch to the enemy. “Of Zebulun, such as went forth to battle, expert in war with all instruments of war, fifty thousand which could keep rank: they were not of double heart” (1 Chronicles 12:33).
Just lift up your standard and those that are called to be a member of your tribe will come. People must connect with the tribe they belong too with the anointing and message of the Kingdom that best resonates with their DNA. A transition is now taking place as people are finding that the Lord is shifting things in their lives, such as where they work, their relationships, the church they attend and so on.
In Summary by Roy Roden
God is mobilizing an army, a remnant of people that will follow Him wherever He leads them. The Lord is now sounding the silver trumpet for His troops to mobilize according to their tribe to follow Him. As each one finds their place in His body, together they will make up the army of the Lord, It is this divine order that is now being ordered by the Lord to march forward in a specific order to follow His presence. In doing so the King of Glory will be in their midst as the Lord of Hosts.
The first tribe to march forward behind the glory cloud is the tribe of Judah. They carry in their ranks the shield and the sword. (1 Chr. 12:24) These have the Lion like nature of Christ to overcome and prevail with His victorious nature. To rule and reign with Christ of the Royal Priesthood. These have a heart like David with a passion for God’s presence. They are both radical lovers of God and worshipping warriors of God.
In the midst of worship the Lord of Hosts will come to deliver, heal and empower His people to rise up with His war like nature. They will go forth with the roar of the Lion to release in the earth the sound of the victorious conquering King.
The Lord will go forth like a warrior; He will arouse His zeal like a man of war. He will utter a shout, yes, He will raise a war cry. He will prevail against His enemies (Is. 42:13).
Following the tribe of Judah are the Sons of Issachar. These have the Seers anointing with the prophetic vision to receive revelatory knowledge of the times with the wisdom to know how to prepare the people. Like King David, they will access the throne of heaven to obtain the revelatory knowledge to rule at the gates on earth. And like King David, they will obtain the military strategies and counsel from on high that will enable the army of the Lord to set ambushes, instead of being ambushed.
Armed with foreknowledge of the times, as forerunners of destiny they will prepare the people to build today according to the blueprint of heaven, to establish His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
The next tribe to march forward is the tribe of Zebulun. This tribe holds the keys to the house of David with the governmental anointing to put all things into divine order. “And the key of the house of David will I lay upon His shoulder, so He shall open, and none shall shut and He shall shut, and none shall open.”
The church is about to see a new apostolic/prophetic order. They are not just getting the vision for a new order to be in place, but to set in place a new order for the future. We are now shifting into a new administration. The way that we have seen things done in ministry is about to change. We are in a divine shift of prophetic alignment where our connections and relationships are coming into place for the future.
