(week 02/10)

 In our article last week, we saw that God is bringing a new dominion in the earth from His throne in the year 2010 and the coming decade.

How then will this new dominion come?

It will come from the throne of God through and under the covering of an Apostolic leadership in full measure (Eph. 4:13), that has emerged like Noah and his sons (Gen. 8:15-17) from the ‘ark’ of the practice of the perfecting of the love of God by the blood, the Word and the Spirit (Heb. 13:20-21, 1 Jn. 2:5, 1 Jn. 4:12-13), with a mandate to subdue the earth (Gen. 9:1-2) and the token of the rainbow (Gen. 9:13).
Now what does the rainbow represent?

It represents a manifestation of the glory of God from the throne of God that will cause the new Apostolic leadership, also typified by a new Davidic leadership in full measure, to subdue the earth: breaking, ruling and discipling both the church and the nations at this hour, so the Lord Jesus can return physically in the rapture to close the age:

Psalms 102:15-16 MKJV: So the nations shall fear the name of Jehovah, and all the kings of the earth Your glory. (16) When Jehovah shall build up Zion, He shall appear in His glory.

Isaiah 59:19-21 AMP: So [as the result of the Messiah’s intervention] they shall [reverently] fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in, like a flood the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him and put him to flight [for He will come like a rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives]. [Matt. 8:11; Luke 13:29.]

Isaiah 60:1-5 ESV: Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. (2) For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the LORD will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you. (3) And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. (4) Lift up your eyes all around, and see; they all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried on the hip. (5) Then you shall see and be radiant; your heart shall thrill and exult, because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the nations shall come to you.

Isaiah 60:9-11 AMP: Surely the isles and distant coastlands shall wait for and expect Me; and the ships of Tarshish [shall come] first, to bring your sons from afar, their silver and gold with them, for the name of the Lord your God, for the Holy One of Israel, because He has beautified and glorified you. (10) Foreigners shall build up your walls, and their kings shall minister to you; for in My wrath I smote you, but in My favor, pleasure, and goodwill I have had mercy, love, and pity for you. (11) And your gates shall be open continually, they shall not be shut day or night, that men may bring to you the wealth of the nations–and their kings led in procession [your voluntary captives]. [Rev. 21:24-27.]

Matthew 24:14 ESV: And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

Now a natural physical rainbow is caused by:
1. A cloud
2. Water or rain from the cloud
3. Light from the sun, which shines through the cloud and is dispersed by the rain from the cloud into the 7 colours of the rainbow.

The spiritual rainbow of the glory of God that is present at the throne of God is formed in the same way spiritually.

Ezekiel 1:28 ESV: Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking.

Revelation 4:3 MKJV: And He who sat there looked like a jasper stone and a sardius. And a rainbow was around the throne, looking like an emerald.

Spiritually, the cloud represents the apostolic ministry gift:

Proverbs 25:14 MKJV: A man boasting himself in a false gift is like clouds and wind, but no rain.

Ephesians 4:8-11 MKJV: Therefore He says, “When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive and gave gifts to men.” (9) (Now that He ascended, what is it but that He also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? (10) He who descended is the same also as He who ascended up far above all heavens, that He might fill all things.) (11) And truly He gave some to be apostles, and some to be prophets, and some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers,

The rain represents the teaching of God’s Word from the apostolic anointing or gift:

Deuteronomy 32:2 ESV: May my teaching drop as the rain, my speech distil as the dew, like gentle rain upon the tender grass, and like showers upon the herb.

The light from the sun represents the light of the life of God (Jn. 1:4, 8:12) that comes from the Lord Jesus: the sun of righteousness (Mal. 4:2) through praying with all kinds of prayer in the Spirit using an abundance of the life of God.

John 8:12 ESV: Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

Malachi 4:2 MKJV: But to you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness shall arise, and healing will be on His wings. And you shall go out and frisk like calves of the stall.

Hitherto, the developing apostolic gifts in the earth, the rain of their teaching and the sunlight of their prayers with light of the life of God have not produced this level of the manifestation of the glory of God because the measure of the apostolic anointing and the life and thus light of God had not reached full measure.

However, in this year and decade of 2010 and onwards, the measure of the apostolic anointing will reach full measure and produce a measure of the life and thus light of God that is 7 times what has been available in the last 6000 years (6 millennial days (2 Pet. 3:8)) since the Word of God began to be released into the earth after the fall of Adam in the garden of Eden, all put together. It is this 7-fold measure of the light of God from the full measure of the life of God that will, as it were, produce the 7-fold colour of the rainbow of the glory of God!

Isaiah 30:26 MKJV: And the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that Jehovah binds up the break of His people and heals the stroke of their wound.

So, in 2010 and onwards, a new apostolic and Davidic leadership will arise and be manifest in the church as the Saul leadership and his sons are killed and removed both physically and spiritually:

Jeremiah 30:8-9 ESV: “And it shall come to pass in that day, declares the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off your neck, and I will burst your bonds, and foreigners shall no more make a servant of him. (9) But they shall serve the LORD their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them.

Zechariah 11:8 MKJV: I also cut off three shepherds in one month; and my soul was impatient with them, and their soul also despised me.

Zechariah 13:8-9 MKJV: And it shall be in all the land, says Jehovah, two parts in it shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left in it. (9) And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried. They shall call on My name, and I will answer them; I will say, It is My people; and they shall say, Jehovah is my God.
This new Davidic apostolic leadership will break, rule and disciple the church to produce by a refining fire a church without spot, blemish, wrinkle or any such thing (Eph. 5.26-27), which will in turn break, rule and disciple the nations (Mt. 24:14; 28:18-20) and so close this age
