CAUGHT UP TO RULE THE NATIONS
Revelation 12:5 KJV: and she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
Here we have a panoramic, prophetic present truth: a man-child company of Christians that are being ‘caught up’ or are growing up spiritually into Christ in all things and so can exercise the authority and power of Christ from their position of being seated with Christ in the heavenlies, though they are still on the earth!
Ephesians 4:15 KJV: But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
Ephesians 2:6 KJV: And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
John 14:12 KJV: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
John 3:13 KJV: And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
1John 4:17 KJV: Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
This man-child will rule the nations with a ‘rod of iron’ by the ‘double glory’ they will manifest:
Isaiah 61:6-7 KJV: But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. (7) For your shame ye shall have DOUBLE; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the DOUBLE: everlasting joy shall be unto them.
This double glory will be BOTH the glory of physical miracles—which we see in the ministry of the Lord Jesus and the early church; and the glory of intellectual miracles that in turn will produce economic and political miracles like we see in the lives of Joseph, Daniel, Esther and Mordecai.
Observe that physical miracles primarily affect individuals, whereas intellectual, economic and political miracles affect NATIONS; hence the Lord Jesus called them the ‘greater’ works by which the man-child company will rule and ‘shake’ all nations fulfilling:
Haggai 2:7-9 KJV: And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. (8) The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. (9) The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
To be a part of this man-child company you must:
1. Follow spiritual fathers who are teaching and PRACTICING the principles of perfection in order to obtain the borrowed anointing when the Spirit without measure is released and the glory of God is manifested in the church.
2. Tithe your time: as a daily habit give God 2.4 hours of concentrated time in prayer and the Word by fourth watch praying.
