A word to encourage the bride birthing destiny right now.
By Pieter Kirstein
Jesus spoke to me about the bride in travail and God used the pattern and the likeness of when He was birthed in the stable.
The Holy Spirit is the star that led and pointed the sold-out bride to the place of isolation and birth. The stable speaks of the fact that the Son of God again shall be birthed in a place of obscurity in humble circumstances through the life of the bride.
Jesus said to me that the same King of glory that came in the first time through the virgin Mary is going to come in through the virgin church because organised Christianity, signified by the Inn, had no room for Him. People are too occupied with their own religious agendas building their own kingdoms, so He prepared a bride according to His own choosing.
A people willing to pay the price to be brought into oneness with their God according to His sovereign agenda. This shall be the revelation and the manifestation of the sons of God.
Many religious people have judged the true bride of Christ by the way she had to take to birth the fulness of the kingdom in this time and season. Many even thought that we are crazy to pay such a price of being stripped by God on the road of the cross to be brought into His fulness at the end of ourselves.
This event was prophesied in Isaiah 66: 4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spoke, they did not hear: but they did evil before My eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.
5 Hear the word of the LORD, you that tremble at His word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for My name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but He shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
Also found in Malachi 3 :
1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom you seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom you delight in: behold, he shall come, says the LORD of hosts.
2 But who may endure the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appears? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:
3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.
You see God is a supernatural God and for the bride to become the manifestation of His kingdom and His fulness within the earth through a surrendered people according to the Lord’s prayer means that He’s going to destroy the natural mind and world of His subjects.
I was taken through the veil by the Lord and the Spirit of God took me through the temple order and process of sanctification. This is when I saw the face of Yeshua the first time because I was brought into the Holy of holies.
First God takes you out of the world. Then He has to take the world out of you. Then He goes much deeper as He confronts you in the world of your own desires. Then God takes your world out of you. Then He brings you through the veil into His world – THE HOLY OF HOLIES because as the jealous lover that He is the Bridegroom becomes the only desire and dwelling place of the bride.
She then is ready to become the holy habitation of her God.
The bride of Jesus Christ are the believers who paid the price for intimacy. This intimacy results to be placed in His furnace of affliction and to experience the painful baptism of fire because the Lord is holy. He must purge out of us all that can corrupt the pure revelation of who God is and this sanctification is according to Ezekiel 36:23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in the midst of them; and the nations shall know that I am the LORD, says the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
To birth the fulness of the kingdom and the revelation of God means that the seed of your life must undergo the death and crucifixion of a personal cross because the natural earthy fallen Adam is selfish and sinful by nature. If we don’t die to self then we only live for ourselves and unto ourselves according to our fleshly desires and selfish agenda.
Jesus illustrated the pathway into the glorified life of manifest sonship within Himself when He said in John 12:23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone: but if it dies, it brings forth much fruit.
25 He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
26 If any man serves me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serves me, him will my Father honor.
27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
For sure those who desire to be united with Christ in the same manner and those who desire to be raised up and brought forth as the manifested sons and daughters of God shall experience anguish of soul through the birthing season as we take up the cross to become obedient the point of death. This death is the death of the old order of the fleshly carnal sinful man to be brought into the glory of the new creation created after God in true righteousness and holiness.
This willingness to be brought into oneness with God is the true communion of which Jesus spoke in John 6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you have no life in you.
54 Whosoever eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, dwells in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father has sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eats me, even he shall live by me.
The Spirit of God extended the invitation to all believers in Revelation 3:
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will eat with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father in his throne.
Only those who expose themselves to this kind of communion with their Lord shall be honored with a place on His throne.
We see this also declared in Revelation 12 because the fulness of the kingdom can only come forth in a people who have placed themselves on the altar of demonstrated love.
The Manchild company:
1 And there appeared a great sign in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3 And there appeared another sign in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered, to devour her child as soon as it was born. 5 And she brought forth a male child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and three score days. 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.
Now notice the “manchild” has overcome and is caught up unto the throne of God into a reigning position. We see the manchild, we see rulership, we see a birthing, we see the dragon, we see a cathing up, we see a war, we see the dragon’s kingdom defeated, we see the dragon and his angels being cast out. We see the salvation, the strength, the kingdom of our God and the power of His Christ revealed and proclaimed in the overcoming sons of God. Verse 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.
The first “rapture” will be a spiritual rapture through the ministry of the cross of Christ. A nation has obeyed and followed Christ to the point of death, therefore God will raise them up to reign with Christ in the Spirit and the nations shall be judged and shaken exactly as God says in Revelation 2:26 And he that overcomes, and keeps My works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to pieces: even as I received of my Father. 28 And I will give him the morning star.
In 2011 the Lord put me in a 12 day government fast that ended on 11-11-11. The day after I broke the fast I saw an open eye vision of the hand of God descending out of heaven and He held a massive key. Then I saw how He put that massive key into a huge lock and with one turn He unlocked the prison house of every soul ordained to come in during the time of the harvest.
Through the principle of true communion the following was revealed to me.
God the Father said to me, “You are “the” generation that has been given “the” prophetic key to unlock the final harvest in the earth. This key works in the following manner. As the bride comes into agreement with her Husband by embracing the covenant requirements of the cross of self-abandonment to His will and purpose and she releases the seed of her life through an intimate love relationship, He in turn responds by becoming one with her in a sacred union.
Then the Lord God impregnates the seed of her life and this principle births and brings forth the nations. In other words, the final harvest are the children that will be birthed through the marriage of Christ and His devoted bride. As she abandons herself to her King, she becomes one with Him in vision, desire and purpose.
Two days after that I was invited to have lunch with some of my intersessor friends. As I sat at the table in a tea garden that day, suddenly in my spirit I felt the morning star rise. Then the Lord said, “the morning star has risen in your heart”.
I never understood this until God revealed to me that the morning star proclaims the dawn of a new day. What is meant in Revelation 2:28 is that during this time of Him bringing His overcomers into that reigning position, the Lord’s day will be declared through the giving of the morning star. The kingdom age is now dawning upon this final generation and it is time to wake up.
Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, unless he reveals his secret unto his servants the prophets.
Understand this that the kingdom of God can only come forth and be revealed in an obedient, meek and submissive people and not in the self- willed rebellious ones who only live for themselves and resist the standard of the gospel of Christ’s kingdom. The mature obedient sons of the Father overcame Satan (the dragon) in 3 ways as is clearly written in Revelation chapter 12.
Please remember beloved that the devil does not have to kill you physically to make you ineffective in the earth; all he needs to do is to cause you to live for yourself and to keep you busy with yourself. How many God-given dreams and destinies have been shipwrecked through self-centeredness? Satan’s purpose is revealed in self and God’s purpose is revealed in the way of the cross. We must be conformed to His gospel if we want to be followers of Christ.
1. The call of the cross is to follow Christ.
2. The suffering of the cross is to die to self.
3. The purpose of the cross is to live for God.
4. The glory of the cross is to reign with Christ.
The Holy Spirit spoke the following to me about His overcomers: It reads, Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives to the death.
1.Focussing on the overcoming power of the Lord’s blood. These have embraced the ministry of the redemptive work of the Holy Spirit by the blood of the eternal covenant. A covenant that seals the marriage between Christ and His beloved bride in death through the working of the cross and the ministry of the blood. She continued with the Lord in His trials, being faithful, and through the cleansing power of the furnace of affliction she has been given a new heart. A heart in total submission to God, a heart according to Isaiah 48:10 and 11 that will not touch the glory of God. These devoted one’s lives have been redeemed by the power and the working of the blood in that their souls are completely cleansed, healed and delivered of earthly defilement and by way of surrender are seated in heavenly places living a life hidden with Christ in God.
2.Focussing on the testimony part: They overcome by the word of their testimony means that their whole lives have been conformed to the power, the truth and the reality of the Lord’s gospel. Their lives testifies of the reality of the overcoming truth because of their experience and faithful witness to the truth. In other words they become expressions of the Lord’s truth and victory. No experience of the truth, no testimony and experience comes through obedience by applying the truth. If what you speak is not a reality in your life to which you can testify then my friend you are a false witness. Jesus even clearly says this in John 15, speaking of His true followers and disciples that will bring forth and manifest the fruits of His gospel. 27 And you also shall bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning. This is speaking of intimacy.
3.Focussing on the loosing their lives unto the death of self means that they, by revelation of the Spirit, saw, tasted and live in the experiental reality of a heart that has been conquered by the love of God. They esteem being wholly devoted to the Lover of their souls far above any earthly gain because they have discovered, through the sacrifice of all, the Lord their God as the only satisfying factor, experience and reality in their surrendered lives. Therefore the god of this world and all of his carnal fleshly lures have lost their power to intice these devoted ones to draw them away because they perceive what this world has to offer as a total obstacle and hindrance through the eyes of love.
Their desire is that there must be no interferance to their devotion Christ because the truth and power of the cross has unlocked the joy and the freedom of His love in which is no earthly desire. The love of God is a burning passion and desire and a drive toward the Lord and His agenda and not toward fleshly temporary things. By abandoning all they have gained Christ and there is no greater treasure and desire fulfilled than this.
They did not love their lives unto death means that they are become the Lord’s love slaves by being slain through the death of their personal crosses and through His redemptive work that was allowed in their surrendered lives they are now being raised up into a victorious rulership position in Christ as overcoming sons and daughters.
