This is exciting – yet a tad frustrating!!
Frustrating because what I’d drafted for this week needed postponing in view of other material for immediate publication. Yet exciting because what I was going to write on a dimension behind what Dr Stone said on the Lord’s invitation to the threshing floor links into what we heard on Sunday! And it was delivered as a clearly prophetic statement!
In addition, there’s indirect support for a supposition made when I started writing.
So, it’s extremely exciting yet frustrating because things are happening so rapidly. As John stressed, the Lord is working very fast – we can so easily miss what He’s doing.
It’s hard to keep up and to write in the available time slots. In fact, my intention to share quick notes on John Kilpatrick’s teaching upon the ‘Redefinement’ word got held up for I needed to check some bits against the archived Sunday service. CHP are quick do that but it seems news of Steve Hill’s passing took precedence. The the video came online a little later in the day but there was a technical hitch that needed my referral to a friend on staff there.
I trust that you may have grasped there’s a significance to what follows and take time not only to read but also to watch the pastor’s exceptional teaching. First and if you’re still with me, and even disagree, here’s what I wrote awaiting the archived video:
UK & US Sunday services
In Sunday morning’s service at Church of His Presence pastor John Kilpatrick reported how, whilst awakening from sleep in Texas last month, the Lord gave notice of what He will be doing during the next three months. In ‘100 days of Redefinement’ this seems to be specifically for CHP and cities, but it is definitely applicable to ALL churches.
With reference to that word’s mention of Jesus’ disciple Simon being renamed as Peter, John emphasised he wasn’t the only one whose identity was re-moulded and became renewed. Ordinarily, we refer to many in the New Testament as being healed by Jesus or the apostles, as though that defined their lives. But, in fact, the effect of God’s direct work upon them completely ‘re-defined’ and transformed them from that moment on. So Peter could accomplish what God intended, which he wouldn’t have been able to as ‘Simon’, so too for Abraham and Sarah, Jacob and Paul.
In this respect, pastor was re-iterating what we’d heard that same morning in church in UK – seems it’s the ‘Bridge Over The Pond’ effect once again! Our minister taught in depth on ‘Transformation’ and being merged IN Christ, and included some words of wisdom from Paul Keith Davis. Our aim should be to be holy and become like Him.
Paul Keith is of the opinion that the Lord comes to bless and anoint what’s like Him. So, His power and presence finds a platform in people who focus upon Him and His holy character to the exclusion of all else and “He anoints His nature”.
Therefore, in assessing John’s gift of bringing words from the Living God it’s helpful to be aware that the Lord has used him to host two major moves of revival in repentance and in healing.
[Next, with the video available to check and expand my jottings on John’s explanation of ‘Redefinement’ I found it more important to transcribe these prophetic words. In fact, the pastor wants to go on the record for what he’s conveyed, as below.]
Under the Holy Spirit’s unction
With this in mind we need to note Pastor John Kilpatrick’s summary to his detailed discourse upon ‘Redefinement’, its ‘Season of Suddenlies’ and what God is now about to do in the earth. Pointing to Isaiah 28:21 on-screen (is shown below) he states:
“The Holy Spirit says that we are entering into a season where God is going to resort to strange works and strange acts to show the nations of the world He’s still in charge…He’s still in charge.
“And trust me on this, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Holy Spirit told me back in 2009, you remember – He gave me the word ‘R.e.s.u.r.r.e.c.t.i.o.n.’ and one of the words (within that) was that there’s going to be signs in the heavens and there’s been many of them; you can go to the internet and check them out and see what’s happening in the heavens – much of it hasn’t been reported..
“We’re entering into a season right now…where these ‘strange works’ and ‘strange acts’ have to do with the planetary system and to do with the universe.
“The time is going to come when Israel’s going to be assailed from all sides. You know as well as I do that the Bible clearly predicts in Ezekiel 38 and 39 that Russia is going to come against Israel and invade Israel…and in the very week that we’re talking about cutting our army and armed forces down to the smallest army since before WWII…
“And what God is about to do in regard to Israel, I can’t tell you everything because I don’t have the full picture…but I do know the other day the Holy Spirit said to me:
“Don’t minimise that scripture about My strange acts and my strange works!”
“Don’t minimise that because God said,
“I will pull out all stops to show that I AM the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I will pull out all stops to let the world know that I swore to Abraham this land, and anybody that fools with what I swore to by Myself will have to pay the consequences.”
“So let me just speak this out. I speak that in the near future the nations on earth will see on television, and by other means, God’s strange works and His strange acts. Trust me on this. It’s coming and there’s nothing a soul in the world can do about it.
“It’s past men’s ability to touch it and to do anything about it, but God is going to be glorified. There will come a day when people entering their churches, [of whatever denomination], when people walk across the threshold…they’ll be shaking and trembling knowing what God is about to do, and what He’s already done on the earth. They’ll know there’s a real God and there’s going to come a holy fear upon people like they’ve never seen before!
“There’ll be a brand new respect – hear me! – there’ll be a brand new respect for God and for the Holy Spirit unlike anything the Church has ever seen…
“I’m not going to say this or that’s going to happen in the next 100 days but God is getting ready to redefine His Church and He’s getting ready for us to get ready to see what we’ve never seen in our lifetime…”
John returns to the examples of Biblical leaders whom God had redefined in order to serve His purposes fully, and then prophesies how this applies to churches.:
“It’s going to happen, going to work both ways with churches – listen…
“There are churches that are really ‘a remnant’, and they’re really God-fearing. They really love Jesus and really are focused upon the End-Times and the coming of Christ, and they really want to serve God…God’s going to redefine those churches so they’re going to become more powerful than they’ve ever become –
“BUT there’s also going to be other churches that have ‘left their first love’ and they’ve gone the way of the world – and they’re going to have their ‘candlestick’ removed. They’re going to be redefined and the way they’re going to be redefined is: they’re NOT anywhere going to be ready for the soon coming of Jesus Christ!
“There is a SHIFTING going on RIGHT NOW. There is a TRUE SHIFTING going on right now, where God is going to redefine ‘the remnant’ into another thing and He’s going to take the wordly, compromising, so-called church and He’s going to redefine them and they won’t be able to come into what God’s got for them! It will be like, and as real as, removing a candlestick from a candlebra.
“So that’s the word that the Lord sent me here to give today…”
That final point is very interesting confirmation of what I suggested in an email 5 years ago about the End-game coming into play with ‘a sifting of the Church’ turning into ‘a sHifting’! Thank you Lord.
For scriptural authority for the concept of God’s surprise action, John quoted Acts 2:2 and 1 Corinthians 15 where the Church was founded suddenly and where it will be ‘taken’ suddenly. Also Romans 9:28
For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness, because a short work the Lord will make upon the earth,
as well as Isaiah 10:26 and especially 28:21, where God speaks of doing things very quickly:
For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act. [From KJV. The NKJV renders the last as ‘His awesome work…His unusual act’ and notes ‘unusual’ literally means ‘foreign’!]
These meagre notes cannot do justice to exceptional teaching under a strong unction of the Holy Spirit. There were at least a couple of times other than quoted above when John spoke very prophetically. For example:
In the season that we’re entering into the Lord says, “I’m going to cut things short”. The Bible says He’s going to cut the days short. I don’t think that you and I here today can comprehend what I’m really saying, because I can’t… Just listen carefully – we don’t realise how fast God’s going to speed things up and expedite things! It will happen so fast you won’t even have time to praise Him!
Therefore, this teaching is well worth attentive study, starting at 1:32:25 of this video, Season of Suddenlies. From the offset he stresses the importance of this being a ‘kairos’ moment or ‘now’ word.
Also, note that 5 years ago the Lord told my fellow watcher to be aware of what Russia gets up to, as well as other matters. Read those very brief details from CHP downloads link by selecting ‘R.E.S.U.R.R.E.C.T.I.O.N. – a prophetic insight for the future’.
May you be mightily blessed…
Considered further in Parts of an ‘Invisible Jigsaw’ point to a bigger picture and in The Babylonian aspect of the Church’s ‘New Era’.
