All-In Discipleship

Zeal for the Lord should consume us (John 2:17): zeal for Jesus, zeal for our Heavenly Father, zeal for His Kingdom on the Earth as it is in Heaven, and zeal for more of Holy Spirit living in and loving through us. The King of kings and His Kingdom IS this life’s goal. He should be the desire of our hearts individually, and also His command to, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words], baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19 AMP). There is no way to obey that command apart from His supernatural love.

Some in obedience to His command were used to dramatically change the course of my life when I was saved at a Lay Witness Mission, sponsored by several churches on behalf of the youth in our small community, at the age of 14. I have served the Lord with the music He placed within me in the church and in ministry from the age of 11. In my late twenties, I began to sense the Lord drawing me to a wholehearted, 24/7 lifestyle of living for Him that only continues to increase in this NOW time.

We are living in times of Kingdom preparation. There is an urgency to train up this generation to live eternally NOW. How we invest this life matters for all eternity. This generation is called to possess a testimony of having always known and walked with the Lord. You see, when we comprehend at an early age that our identity is rooted and grounded in Christ alone, and that nothing and no one else can ever define us, we become empowered to live for the glory of His name alone and for the advancement of His Kingdom on the Earth.

What are we going to do to prepare our children and youth to live with a personal zeal for the Lord that consumes them? Churches have asked this question amidst the multitude of cultural distractions and diversions. A Willow Creek REVEAL Study by Russ Rainey, Ph.D.. states the following: “Before the research, Willow Creek had been assuming that “the more a person far from God participates in church activities, the more likely it is those activities will produce a person who loves God and loves others.” However, this assumption was found to be invalid by the research. To quote the study: “Does increased attendance in ministry programs automatically equate to spiritual growth? To be brutally honest: it does not.”1

Additionally, 2017 Barna Research states, “Millennials are the least likely generation to regularly go to church; less than three in ten (28%) attend weekly. Only 11% of today’s women see church or religious ‘activities’ as a top priority. However, the research also reveals that people who are disconnected from church – even those who self-identify as Christian – are less likely to engage in other faith activities that include Bible reading, prayer, volunteering, and charitable giving. ‘Whether we want to admit it or not, church attendance roots believers in regular faith rhythms and increases many other related faith practices.’” Barna states, “Millennials are seeking life-shaping relationships, vocational discipleship, are drawn to serve, and desire more of Jesus.”2

The world offers an infinite array of exciting fun, activities, distractions, and diversions. The church, in an attempt to attract attendees, oftentimes tries to offer a vast array of activity options. Realistically, church activities are not the answer. Jesus is the only answer the world is searching for. The church is supposed to be the place where the lost can go to connect with the love of Christ and to encounter more of His living Presence. In searching the Scriptures and the research, however, the bottom line is that activities are not creating disciples who love the Lord and others with their whole heart, soul, mind, and strength. It’s all about His love living in and flowing through His sons and daughters on behalf of those needing to encounter Him.

It’s time to raise up a generation who are all-in for a discipleship journey of being laborers of love, in the midst of a broken and lost harvest that is plentiful. Our Heavenly Father is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow, but we do know there are different seasons in our lives and for the body of Christ (Ecclesiastes 3:1-14). In that way, as believers we can look ahead with the hope of Christ in us to navigate in a new way that looks much different than we have in the past (Isaiah 43:18-21 AMP, “Do not remember the former things, Or ponder the things of the past. “Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert. “The beasts of the field will honor Me, Jackals and ostriches, Because I have given waters in the wilderness And rivers in the desert, To give drink to My people, My chosen. “The people whom I formed for Myself Will make known My praise.”)

This generation needs to possess an intimate personal relationship with the living God, i.e. with the Word that is “living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]; sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12 AMP). This generation has been created and called to know intimately their identity in Christ, the Word, and how to recognize and fervently obey the leading of Holy Spirit. It is vitally important they learn how to press into worship and prayer, and how to BE vessels of His supernatural love to a hurting world. The few hours per week spent in church on Wednesdays or Sundays, if attendance is even regular, must be focused on awakening these truths. Equipping their spiritual lives – their spirits – is paramount in the times in which we live.

Jesus exhorted His disciples to “Leave the children alone, and do not forbid them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Matthew 19:14 AMP). Jesus instructed the children in the exactly the same time, place, and manner as He instructed the adults. I am thankful and blessed someone responded to Jesus’ instruction, and took the time to lead me into an intimate relationship with my Heavenly Father, His Son, my Savior, Lord, and King, and with Holy Spirit, “the Spirit of Truth who guides us into all the truth [full and complete truth], and does not speak on His own initiative, but He speaks whatever He hears [from the Father—the message regarding the Son], and He discloses to us what is to come [in the future]” (John 16:13 AMP).

We are called to be in the world and not of it. Jesus is worthy of a multigenerational, multicultural Bride who has set herself apart solely as His and His purposes on the Earth as it is in Heaven…wholehearted, 24/7…all-in. It is through this lens I passionately seek to be His vessel of preparing this generation for such a time as this. This is the heartbeat and calling of my Heavenly Father on my life. All glory to Him as His Body co-labors as His hands and feet in the lovingkindness of Him who first loved us!!!

The Atmosphere of Healing

I have not posted much lately, as I have been about Kingdom teaching and psalming intercession/ministry much of the time in this NOW season. Kingdom teaching involves empowering this generation with their Christ-centered identity, as well as opportunities to practice hearing the many different ways Holy Spirit speaks to us, grounded in His Word. Absolutely essential, critical, and central to the words we speak to and about others, as well as to all of the prayers we pray for individuals/nations, and to all of our actions, is being grounded in and focused on our Heavenly Father’s love (John 3:16-17, “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge and condemn the world [that is, to initiate the final judgment of the world], but that the world might be saved through Him.”).

People who have been wounded, rejected, broken, hurt, abandoned, sick, grieving, etc. need to encounter our Heavenly Father’s love first and foremost; above all else. The Body of Christ must become and reflect His agape love in word and action in order for individuals to truly encounter the only One who heals; the only One who saves; the only One who delivers; the only One who comforts; the only One who restores; the only One who extravagantly loves with an infinite acceptance that knows no limits in depth, height, width or separation of any kind. Jesus Christ fulfilled that separation. In Him, we are Beloved. In Him, we are complete. In Him, we are made whole. In Him, we are forgiven. In Him, we are Healed. In Him, we are comforted. In Him, we are restored. In Him, we are embraced. In Him, we are empowered. In Him, we have purpose. In Him, we have destiny. In Him…in Him…in Him…infinite…eternal.

The intention of my psalming ministry and CD recordings: to love the One who is most lovely; to seek Him – His presence on Earth as it is in Heaven – wholeheartedly, passionately, fervently, and unabandoned, in order that He has a vessel through whom He can encounter all who seek Him, and be who He alone is and can be. Loving on the Lover of our souls – praising, thanking, worshiping and adoring – creating an atmosphere for the Creator Himself to encounter those He loves and is drawing to Himself to realign and restore their very being and purpose – encountering Love itself in a way that no human being can fulfill. This is how individual lives are set free. This is how we make disciples. This is how communities and nations are transformed. This is the love, compassion, and mercy Jesus modeled in His earthly ministry: loving our Heavenly Father loving the Son, and loving one another in THAT very love. For such a time as this we have been born.

What Are We Creating?

As Believers – maturing children and sons – in Christ, we must in this NOW time understand that our thoughts and our words CREATE. Yes, I said CREATE, whatever we are thinking or speaking forth. Scripture and science both validate this statement. We get to choose WHAT we create because our Father in His immense goodness has always been about choice (life or death – in ALL things). In these controversial and exciting times in which we have been chosen to live, let the Body of the Son purpose to create LIFE through our thoughts and our words. If we are truly drawing near to Him, seeking His Heart & His will in this journey we are on each day, abundant life is the only thing we will find in our searching, and it’s always on behalf of releasing it to others on the Earth. ALL else – all negative, all fear, all anxiety, all anger, all disappointment, all frustration, all judgment, all lack (note: ALL that is not of His immense love and life abundant) will be dispelled, because drawing near to Him causes ALL else to flee (James 4:7-8, “Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”

Creating anything but abundant life as Believers is double-mindedness. Our Father is searching the Earth to find maturing sons who understand this…maturing sons who represent WELL the life giving atmosphere of Heaven being released on the Earth through them as vessels in the midst of all that we do not understand (Proverbs 3:5-6 (AMP), “Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.] In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, and He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].” This is applicable to this election year, as well as in all things!

Make The Switch: A Language Change

If there is one thing I have learned from the journey our family has traversed, it’s that Believers must speak at all times through Heaven’s lens, releasing our Father’s eyes, ears, heart, mind, dreams, and will on the Earth, for such a time as this. By doing so, we become His vessels of releasing all that is good, loving, life giving, redeeming, and restoring! The atmosphere of Heaven contains no darkness, no evil, no negative reports, no anxiety, no fear, no lack, no bad thing…period. Rather, Heaven contains only the truest nature of our Father and King – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, holiness, abundance, and most importantly, the reverential fear/awe of the Lord, which is the beginning of the needed wisdom to navigate these times in which we have been chosen to live.

Neither cultural transformation nor preparing for Christ’s return will manifest through Believers releasing the negative frequencies of the kingdom of darkness, i.e., the lens and language of the culture. Life and death are released through the power of the tongue. New Agers comprehend this. How much more should maturing sons of the Kingdom make the switch from speaking the language of the seen, natural realm, to creating and releasing the abundant life that exists eternally within us through Christ in the unseen realm, i.e., the culture and language of His Kingdom, on the Earth as it is in Heaven, while fasting the speaking of anything less. This is precisely the revelation James addresses in Chapter 3, as well as that which Habakkuk prophesied in 2:14 (AMP), “But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”

We do not have to compromise the Word in order to BE light amidst the darkness…in order to BE His Truth amidst all of the deception – in order to BE all that encompasses the attributes of His grace, love, mercy, redemption, and restoration. This will not manifest by might nor by power, but by His Spirit. We must wholeheartedly align with the leading of Holy Spirit, yielding to His guidance into ALL Truth in the True nature of our King, which is ALWAYS creating and releasing Father’s love and life eternal – ALWAYS turning to good that which the kingdom of darkness intended for harm! Father is searching for those He can show Himself strong on behalf.

In this year where the fog of darkness ‘appears’ to have its ugliest grip amongst the nations, things are never as though they seem. Sons and daughters of the Most High Jehovah, let’s purpose to be Esthers, Daniels, Deborahs, Josephs, Davids, etc. and the vast company of Biblical heroes in our NOW time, i.e.,  those who lead and influence not as the world chooses to lead and influence, but rather in the opposite spirit – through the Words of Christ Himself in Matthew 5 – always grounded in His perfect love, always casting out fear, and always destroying the works of darkness by BEing His Light and Life in both WORDS and deeds.

Fruit That Remains

This morning while scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed I stumbled across a Lance Wallnau coaching video. On the video he urges listeners to think back over the times and things they were most passionate about in life. He also exhorted pondering any regrets if taken from Earth today.

In reflecting, the season I was most passionate about in life was the hours and years of intimate daily devotions, prayer, and worship with our six children during our homeschooling years. We also ministered as a family throughout those years in worship, children’s, and family ministries at churches, camps, and conferences. The fruit of choosing to wholeheartedly invest myself and my career/education into our six children is manifesting in our young adults in ways that are beyond abundantly blessing us as parents, and honestly, deeply humbling. I have shared a number of posts about both our sons, who are professional musicians, and the awesome doors the Lord continues to open for them as Kingdom leaders in the music industry. Our second son is currently preparing to step out with his music in ministry leadership as well. I have not shared as much on our girls, therefore, I would like to share the following videos and posts because they are worth your time, watch, and read. My only regret would be if I would stop at this juncture and not share what our Father put in me to invest in our own children with those needing to be set free to discover who they are in Christ, along with the gifts Father has placed within each one to be an expression of Heaven on Earth in this NOW time. There’s an entire generation needing what our own adult children have chosen to take hold of for their journeys. Our latter season will be even greater than our former, as we seek to enlarge our tent. At the same time, we get blessed over and over again watching Holy Spirit propel our own children into their destinies!

I don’t have any current links to our son Jaran (age 26). He spends much of his time in the studio working on other people’s projects or on the road drumming. He is a master of sound, an amazing songwriter, and an incredible drummer – he was born to drum! He plays all instruments on studio recordings with the exception of lead guitar and vocals. I believe Holy Spirit with even surprise Jaran with where his journey is headed and it’s all good!

Our youngest son (age 19) traveled through kidney failure and transplant at age 15, is doing well, and is just beginning to figure out his next adventure.

Be as blessed as we are!!! We love each one beyond words and are so humbled & blessed to have been chosen to be their parents!

My upcoming CD Release, KEY EXPRESSIONS, combines strategic tuning, Solfege frequencies/syllables, 12 different musical keys, the frequencies of colors, and of the Word (Isaiah 11:2) with spontaneously Holy Spirit led instrumental psalming to impact every resonant frequency area of the body.

In preparation for recording this sound & healing therapy project, I was prompted to connect strategic Solfege syllables, frequencies, keys, colors, and Isaiah 11:2. The project laid out with the following revelations:

* Solfege & Tuning for Ut (396 Hz) Re (417 Hz) Mi (528 Hz) Fa (639 Hz) Sol (741 Hz)
   La (852 Hz), Ti, 174 Hz, 963 Hz

* Colors of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green Blue, Indigo, Purple
* Scriptures of The Spirit of the Lord, Spirit of Wisdom, Spirit of Understanding, Spirit of
   Counsel, Spirit of Might, Spirit of Knowledge, and Spirit of the Fear of the Lord.

Holy Spirit strategically aligned each of these details prior to recording. Additional Scriptures pertaining to sound and healing for meditation for this project include: Psalm 52:8, Isaiah 49:7-9, Psalm 16:7, Isaiah 44:4, Ecclesiastes 3:1, Isaiah 58:11, Luke 7, 1 Corinthians 12:8-10, Deuteronomy 30:19, Isaiah 63:9, and 1 Samuel 16:7. Each Scripture is listed in the order of the pieces on the CD.

I dedicate to every precious person who is walking through affliction and in need of good news; wounded and in need of being healed; held captive through confinement or condemnation, in need of release; imprisoned and in need of freedom; mourning and in need of comfort; disheartened and in need of joy. I release this project in the power of Yeshua’s blood, His name, His Word, His Spirit, and His Light to manifest justice on behalf of the downtrodden on the Earth for such a time as this (Isaiah 61:1-3). I also dedicate this project to our adopted grandmother, Alice Nelson, who on this CD release date is celebrating her very first birthday in the presence of her Heavenly King.

Possessing the Kingdom

Having a prophetic gifting, I oftentimes ‘see’ and ‘hear’ things from Holy Spirit in the unseen realm ahead of our Heavenly Father’s timing for them to be released/manifest in the seen realm. Learning when to share them has been a journey. I first published the following post in April of 2011, but I believe 2016 will manifest its contents through a greater Kingdom dynamic. I, therefore, was prompted this morning to go through my website archives and repost this. Holy Spirit specifically emphasized that in our Heavenly Father’s infinite wisdom, no one ‘man,’ ‘ministry,’ or ‘church’ will be given THE cutting edge piece of Kingdom revelation, simply because no matter how ‘one’ we become in Him on Earth, humanity tends to defer to the Tower of Babel mode. The Son is our Head; we are His Body. For His Body to function properly on Earth, all of His gifts, revelation, and assignments will need to obediently align and follow the Head, functioning together in unity as one in the Son, in order that His Kingdom advance as it is in Heaven. The Kingdom has always been about the corporate Body – His family. I have edited some of the ‘language’ of the original post slightly to be more in alignment with revelation imparted since its first release. Be blessed in the following activation!

In my last post entitled, Religion or Relationship, someone responded and asked me to clarify my statement: “In His mercy, however, He gives each of His churches and ministries only a ‘piece’ of His revelatory truth (one piece for each in His gigantic Kingdom puzzle). In His great wisdom, this is His higher way of getting us all to function as His Body, working together in unity and love under the headship of Christ.” I am blessed to do so.

When Jesus states we worship Him in ‘spirit and in truth’ (John 4:23-24), He decreed that we need both His Word and His Spirit equally. His Word is living and active (Hebrews 4:12), and His Spirit is the One who guides us into all truth (John 16:13). Because we all see in part, and because the mysteries of His Kingdom are infinite, my point was to emphasize that no one individual, no one ministry, and no one church has received the ‘whole of truth.’ I believe the Lord graces revelation to His Body in such a way that in order to BE His Body on the Earth as He has purposed, we must all: 1) keep our eyes on Jesus (the only way, the only truth, and the only life); 2) align with His written Word (a concern of the person who responded); 3) listen and respond to the voice of Holy Spirit; 4) function in His nature with/toward one another (in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control); and 5) walk in obedience to Holy Spirit leading (our response to His great love for us).

Every individual, ministry, and church has a different function in the Body, needs revelation and direction from the Head, AND needs each other (working together connecting each of our ‘pieces’) in order to more fully reveal His truth, His plans and His purposes. I used a puzzle analogy in my previous article to illustrate the Body of the Son connecting together, in order better reveal the Kingdom He is advancing on the Earth (Matthew 16:18).

Another analogy the Lord showed me, would be His people being the individual notes of His master symphony, each specifically placed and fitted together in varying combinations for expressing His beautifully sonorous melodies and harmonies. Every individual, ministry, and church comprises the various instrumental sections in His orchestra. Each instrumental section must work in conjunction with the rest of the orchestra, following the Conductor, in order for the complete symphony to sound on the Earth as He created and intended it to resonate – releasing the frequencies of the atmosphere of Heaven through His sons. This is a magnificent picture of His incredible masterpiece, Symphonie Eternal, which has no ending. It will gloriously sound forth throughout all eternity!

I also stated in Religion or Relationship, that we have a call to establish the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. Jesus’ model prayer, in Matthew 6:9-13, exhorts us to intercede and call forth from the invisible realm His Kingdom, His will, and His Good News, to manifest in the visible realm on Earth, AS it is in Heaven. How are Christ’s disciples supposed to answer this call amidst these difficult times in which we are currently living? Yes, we are to pray (dialogue with Holy Spirit) without ceasing. Scripture also states that in Christ, we have been given everything we need to live empowered from Heaven’s perspective and economy, regardless of events and circumstances transpiring around us or throughout the world (2 Peter 1:2-8).

I recently awoke with the number 7/21. I knew it was a date, as well as a Scripture. However, I was unable to determine which Scripture, so I set it aside until He was ready to reveal more details to me. Later that day I lay down to worship and listen, and immediately heard “Daniel.” Daniel 7:21. “I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, “until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.” I then proceeded to meditate on Daniel 7:15-22, which parallels much of what’s transpiring globally today. I was stirred with an excitement in my spirit about Daniel having a vision that pertained to the very days in which we are living! I also sensed the Lord’s urgency for us as His disciples to unite in intercession concerning verse 22, because the time has come for the saints to possess the Kingdom. We have already been given the favor of Christ, and all things with which to discern and act from in Him (Romans 5:2, 2 Peter 1:3). We have His Word and His Spirit to give us spiritual eyes and ears with which to manifest His favor, and to partner with Him in possessing the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. (Incidentally, my oldest son called later that day to confirm the exact ‘date’ of 7/21 for something I had been lifting up in prayer on his behalf 🙂 (Incidentally, there was an activation of this very Daniel revelation at a gathering of the sons in Mankato, MN, in August of 2014!)

We know the enemy is waging war against the saints, and in so many cases, he ‘appears’ to be prevailing, even though we are already aligned in the favor of Christ as we seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness. What are we not understanding about the greater works He said we would do (John 14:12), other than the obvious, that Christ has not yet returned, our glorified bodies have not yet manifested in the seen realm, nor is this Earth the ‘New Heaven’ or the ‘New Earth’ that He has gone to prepare? What does it mean to possess the Kingdom, and to pray His will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven, since as disciples of Christ, we have already received His Kingdom and His favor?

I believe the saints of the Kingdom have been journeying through an appointed time of testing, refining, maturation, and transformation in sonship, in order to better carry the very nature of the Father in Christ (Ecclesiastes 3:1, Habakkuk 2:2-3). As humans, unless our flesh is submitted to the will of the Father, we misuse His power, His strength and His authority, which accompany His favor for bringing Heaven’s perspective and provision to Earth.1 The Gospel of Jesus Christ has been misrepresented far too long (see Religion or Relationship). As His sons are transformed and activated to walk in the fruit of the Vine (John 15:4-8), His favor is released in greater measure, empowering us to partner with His Spirit and His Word in possessing the Kingdom. We must first possess our identity as His sons, viewing our circumstances and our world from Heaven’s economy, and then decreeing that perspective on Earth through our worship, praise and thanksgiving; through abiding in the Son, i.e. oneness with our Father’s love, and operating in the Fruits of His Spirit; through releasing the giftings He has given to each to manifest His glory and His heart.

What does possessing the Kingdom look like? In reading Daniel 7:15-22. verse 18 states, “But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.” We must first receive the Kingdom in order to possess it. Receiving the Kingdom comes through our repentance, for the Kingdom is at hand (Matthew 4:17), through receiving the gift of the Father’s love and forgiveness in the Son, and through seeking first the righteousness of the Son (Matthew 6:33). In order to possess the Kingdom, we have to seek our King and activate His righteousness: all He has extended to us and accomplished on our behalf. We seek to intimately know and understand who Jesus and all His favor has made us to be. To possess the Kingdom we must learn to perceive ourselves as the Father sees us through the love of the shed blood of His perfected Son and His righteousness (Heaven’s perspective), and then learn to walk in continual relationship with His Spirit as sons. Wholehearted seeking (Matthew 22:37) and being aligned in the Son – His blood-covered favor, His Word and His Spirit – releases revelation for partnering with the Father in possessing His Kingdom on the Earth.

It’s one thing to read a truth, another to know or understand a truth in one’s mind, and yet another to be transformed by a revelation – an activation – of that truth in one’s spirit, soul, and body, i.e. our DNA. When we really take hold of the truth of the Kingdom, we understand it’s all about what the blood of Jesus has already accomplished on our behalf. It’s about cooperating with His Spirit and His Word at work within us, transforming us into the very nature of the Son (2 Corinthians 3:18).

To conclude, I believe the entire Word-filled, Spirit-filled Body of the Son has been in an intense and accelerated season of this transformation process for such times as these. The world is either currently looking or will soon be looking for people who not only know the truth, but actually know the Truth in the Person of Christ Jesus and manifest it. Kingdom citizens have been devoting and yielding themselves to His plan for their lives, and are actually learning to walk out the truth of His very nature being released in and through us. He has been ‘fine tuning’ His orchestra, in order that we ‘play’ in tune, in time, in harmony, and in alignment with the frequencies with His Headship, His favor, and with one another, as we learn to seek His higher ways in possessing the Kingdom of Heaven on the Earth. There is a multitude of notes (those who have not encountered the living Christ) that have yet to take their place in this grand musical score. The Kingdom orchestra needs to brilliantly resound in order for the all of the individual notes to be drawn to their place in His Symphony. The Body of the Son should be stirred to great joy and excitement, to go deep, wide, and high in intimacy with Him, because we were created for this very day and hour to be His hands and feet on the Earth. It is our time to partner with the King of Kings in possessing His Kingdom!
