I just came out of a mind altering experience in our program in Antigua and write this for those friends who do not think me crazy. I asked the Lord “why do we have to go there?” He said, “The United States is not ready yet as an atmosphere for this conversation. Guatemalans have paid a price to host something unique.”
In Antigua, the “garden city,” God just planted a garden of people to transform a nation. We watched Him shape and fit a random group of 30 powerful people into a living temple to see Guatemalla become a Sheep Nation.
These men and women operate in mountains of business and education and government but they have not seen the kingdom manifest as they hope. The reason is that Hell is a governmental force that can only be displaced by a stronger government! Distrust, competition and corruption are real hindrances.
BUT that will change because God is increasing His presence where the strong man lives by building his invading house right at the top. A house filled with Him and made out of living stones.
YOU ALSO ARE BEING BUILT TOGETHER INTO A DWELLING OF GOD IN THE SPIRIT.” (Eph 2:22-23)
Local churches have important work but as a rule they don’t plant smaller churches in government buildings and business offices and on campuses. But if you work in these places you are ALREADY PLANTED there. If you are going to plunder the strongman’s house you need to GO INTO THE HOUSE. While it is unwise to go against these strongholds alone, you can go with three or four like minded believers “AS ONE” – as living stones forming a living temple.
These living stone temples contain God’s very own presence and power to shift the atmosphere. This anointing will take you into the house deeper.
God is raising up these new temples all over the place. These micro church units have the authority to advance with Christ’s anointing in every one of the seven mountains. LOOK CAREFULLY AT THE RELATIONSHIPS GOD IS FORMING IN YOUR LIFE. THEY ARE STONES FOR THE HABITATION OF GOD.
It does not take many to make this new structure. Only 4 were needed to form Daniel’s Micro church in Babylon. It may look small – but like little David in front of the Giant, SMALL IS THE NEW BIG!
And yes look…these are not bricks. The people God is joining you to have different unique shapes and gifting. LOVE is what cements the diversity in place. Each one completes the temple.
This will be a wild 7m church planting movement right in the mountains that shape culture.
And as you and I are being being fitted together, into a new kind of habitation, “growing into a holy temple in the Lord.”
Now it makes sense. A verse from Isaiah “in the last days the mountain of the Lord’s house will reestablished at the top of the mountains.” On top of every institutional tower, media, film, business, government…there will be a “witness” to the power of the age to come.
