RELEASE AND MANIFESTATION OF SPIRIT WITHOUT MEASURE
We are NOW (June 2016) in a Jewish Jubilee year AFTER 7 shemitah year of release cycles; that time in history now: the 3rd day and the jubilee year AFTER the 7th shemitah year (Deut.15.1 and Lev.25.8-10) of the synchronization of the feast of Tabernacles with a blood moon tetrad).
So we are now (June 2016) BETWEEN the release and the manifestation of the Spirit without measure.
Just as the Spirit without measure was RELEASED on the Lord Jesus at John’s baptism by the spoken Word and a sign in the heavens (Mt.3.16-17) but WAS NOT MANIFESTED until after OVER 40 DAYS at the wedding at Cana in Galilee (Mt.4.2; Jn.2.11); and the same Spirit without measure was RELEASED on Easter Sunday on the Apostles by the Lord Jesus (Jn.20.22) by the spoken Word and a sign from heaven in Jesus’ resurrection (Jn.20.17-18) but was NOT MANIFESTED until 50 days later on the day of Pentecost (Ac. 2.1-4); even so NOW THE SPIRIT WITHOUT MEASURE HAS BEEN RELEASED by the spoken Word at the Feast of Tabernacles (Sept. 28-Oct.5 2015) and a sign in the heavens of the last blood moon of the 2014-2015 tetrad (Sept. 28th.2015); so we expect the manifestation any time over 40 days from about the end of the feast of Tabernacles (Oct.3-5 2015). We, like the Lord Jesus (Jn.2.4) DO NOT KNOW THE EXACT DAY OR HOUR, but must be ready whenever the manifestation starts!
The release is to be used to prepare for the manifestation: the Lord Jesus used the 40 day fasting and praying to prepare Himself for the manifestation; the early church prayed and were taught by the Lord Jesus of things concerning the kingdom BEFORE the manifestation of the power of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost.
Act 1:1-3 NKJV: The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, (2) until the day, in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, (3) to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.
Act 1:14 NKJV: These all CONTINUED with ONE ACCORD in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.
So, just like the Lord Jesus did during and after the 40 day fast and the early church did as shown above, we are now to CONTINUE in prayer and supplication USING THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT WITHOUT MEASURE THAT HAS BEEN RELEASED to cause us to be ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN LOVE (Eph.3.16-20) and HUMILITY: so we will REMAIN HUMBLE AFTER THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SPIRIT WITHOUT MEASURE.
Furthermore as we pray in this manner using the power without measure that has been released, the Holy Spirit will give us revelation knowledge, understanding and wisdom concerning the things of the Kingdom: how to generate and use to the power of God to enforce the Kingdom (God’s total dominion) for right-doing, healing, deliverance and protection, financial and material prosperity, mental and intellectual excellence (1 Kings. 4.29-34; Dan. 1.4,17-20).
To do this we should, on a foundation of keeping the law of life and love (1 Jn.3.23-24, Jn. 20.31, Rom.13.8), pray as a DAILY habit with all kinds of prayer in Spirit like the Lord Jesus did.
Hebrews 5:7-9 NKJV: who, in the DAYS of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear, (8) though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. (9) And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him
Romans 8:23 NIV: Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.
Romans 8:26-29 NIV: In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. (27) And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. (28) And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (29) For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
In our article next week we will see how to rule (enforce the Kingdom) spiritually with diligence.
