Unveiling the Gentile forerunners.
By Pieter Kirstein
Satan’s fear tactics and intimidation was crushed by Christ on the cross, so rise in the strength of Your God body of Jesus.
We shall not be shaken, no we shall not be moved because the Lord in our midst is strong in battle and mighty to save.
Jesus DESTROYED THE POWER OF SATAN, of DEATH of HELL and the GRAVE and the Lord’s end-time army of demon crushers is rising up through the strength and the might and power of God.
We have paid the price beloved bride of Christ through laid down lives. The Lord God Almighty has wrought in us that which is proclaimed in Isaiah 51.
The Master Builder has laid the foundation of God’s kingdom within the earth as it is in heaven and through resurrection glory now establishes the heavens in fulfillment of the Lord’s prayer.
Indeed THROUGH A SERIES OF DIVINE SUDDENLIES the kingdom shall burst forth and explode in and through the sons and daughters of God and we shall move forward to subdue and conquer because the earth’s is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof.
Also concerning our provision the Spirit of God revealed a mighty thing because we now come into the fulfillment of Psalm 110 and Psalm 24 which are prophetic Psalms that speaks of this time in which God’s people shall be willing in the day of His power.
Yes we’ve been stripped by the Lord to be brought to the end of ourselves because there’s no lustful sinful sensual earthly desire in the Son of God therefore we’ve been brought through the sacrifice of the road of the cross into agreement with Him. Through God’s divine nature He caused us to escape the destruction of lustful desires.
2 Peter 1:3 According as His divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness (CHRIST LIKENESS), through the knowledge of Him who has called us to glory and virtue: 4 By which are given unto us exceedingly great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Now that we become mature sons and daughters through the fruitful maturity of manifest sonship we declare with the Lord according to Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Meekness is a fruit of the Spirit that speaks of fruitful maturity through manifest sonship. This is perfectly in agreement through the principle of a life sacrificed according to Romans 8:16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him, so that we may be also glorified together.
We took up the cross and we followed the Lord unto obedience through the death of self, meaning the earthy Adam has been crucified with Him therefore the Father now place us in a ruling position of authority in the kingdom as functioning heirs.
It’s time to step into our rightful inheritance !
God now takes creation back through His manifested sons according to Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.
20 For the creation was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who has subjected the same in hope,
21 Because the creation itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
In the perfect victory through Christ’s authority we declare that which is written in Psalm 24 because we take back what belongs to the sons and daughters of God.
We make our entry in the strength of His power through the resurrection glory of the Holy Spirit and we declare;
1 The earth is the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof (and we are the co- heirs); the world, and they that dwell therein.
2 For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in His holy place?
4 He that has clean hands, and a pure heart; who has not lifted up His soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek your face, O Jacob. Selah.
7 Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be you lifted up, you everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O you gates; even lift them up, you everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
I was fellowshipping with a prophet friend of mine a while back and suddenly the Spirit of God spoke powerfully through her and revealed to me that the corporate bride of Christ are the gates of the city of God through which He is going to suddenly enter.
In her surrender to Him she becomes the city, the gates, the Jerusalem and habitation of God. Exactly as God says in 2 Corinthians 6 for you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
Also very interesting to note that in Revelation 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls:
12 means the governmental structure, administration and operation of the ruling kingdom of God through a mature overcoming people that will rule and reign with Jesus as kings and priests.
In Matthew 13 the Lord spoke the following; 45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking fine pearls: 46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
Did Jesus not pay the price by giving up everything to purchase us with His precious blood? We are indeed to Him that pearl of great price.
The Lord also revealed to me that this temple, tabernacle and habitation of God is raised up in the same manner and order as the temple of king Solomon.
In it we find a pattern as we read in (1) 2 Chronicles 5:1 Thus all the work that Solomon made for the house of the LORD was finished:
(2) 11 And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place: (for all the priests that were present were sanctified)
(3) 13. that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD; 14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.
As with Jacob at Bethel, a people yielded and laid themselves down on the Rock Christ Jesus as God said to me, the principle of yielding oneself to the Rock opens the portals of heaven and you become the gate of heaven through which He will enter to shake this final generation and receive the end-time harvest of souls.
God showed me the open door through which the sons are about to enter. Please compare the letter to the church of Philadelphia in Rev 3:7-13 to Isaiah 26. There is much that agrees and collaborates in these two scrpitures about this prophetic time. He opens doors that no one can shut. He sets an open door before us in Rev 3 because we have kept the truth and persevered through our trials which has purified us and qualified us to enter into the bride-chamber through the key of David and this key is the heart of worship and thanksgiving and there is no greater worship to offer than a obedient heart.
The door for Him as the King of glory to enter in now is the HEART OF THE SURRENDERED BRIDE. In other words our hearts are the gates through which He will enter in and He is the gate through which the bride enters in and through this UNION OF LOVE WE BECOME ONE WITH HIM AND EACH OTHER AS THAT ONE BODY PROPHESIED IN JOHN 17.
Then notice in Isaiah 26 the decree goes forth that says…OPEN THE GATES that the righteous nation that keeps the truth may enter in, praise the Lord. In Rev 3 He promise that He will write on us the name of the city of our God (THE NEW JERUSALEM) which means the bride as God’s eternal dwelling place is that city. In Isaiah 26 it is declared that WE HAVE A STRONG CITY.
We have waited for Him through His judgment on our lives through which God has purified us (verse 8 of Isa 26) the same as 2 Thess 1 where the bride is commended for her faithful endurance through His judgment and purification of her. Then it talks about when He comes in that day to be glorified in His people.
Then in verse 20 of Isaiah 26 God calls the bride into her chamber until the indignation is past. This is none other than passing through that open door of covenant protection that is set before her. The same as the 5 wise virgins that went in to meet the Bridegroom. This same event of the marriage and release were prohesied in Joel 2 because it is through the prepared bride that the latter rain outpouring shall occur. The same thing is mentioned in Rev 3 where God declares “I WILL KEEP YOU FROM THE HOUR OF TRIAL.
We have already been shown by the Father that there are 2 groups of 144 000 forerunner sons and daughters of which Ephraim the Gentile bride shall be the predominant one and God’s firstborn son according to the Father’s foreknowledge to reach the mountaintop of Zion as we approach the time of Jacob’s trouble and the Spirit of God shall lead the way to Zion through the watchmen of Ephraim – Jeremiah 31:6 For there shall be a day [that] the watchmen on Mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise and let us go up to Zion to Jehovah our God!
7 For so says the LORD, Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations. Cry out, give praise and say, O LORD, save Your people, the remnant of Israel.
8 Behold, I will bring them from the north country and gather them from the corners of the earth, and with [them] the blind and the lame, the woman with child and she who is in labor with child, together; a great company shall return there.
9 They shall come with weeping, and with prayers I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way; they shall not stumble in it, for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim [is] My firstborn.
I was ministering prophetically to a pastor and his wife years ago when the Father spoke in tongues through my spirit and the interpretation was “YOU GO FROM THIS PLACE INTO THE VALLEY OF DECISION AND YOU BRING THE REST OF MY PEOPLE TO THIS MOUNTAIN!”
Our role in Ephraim was declared by the Spirit of God in Genesis 48 when He placed the younger son Ephraim prophetically before Mannasah as the Father’s SPIRITUAL FIRSTBORN SON.
1 And it happened after these things, that [one] told Joseph, Behold, your father [is] sick. And he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim.
2 And [one] spoke to Jacob, and said, Behold, your son Joseph comes to you. And Israel strengthened himself, and sat on the bed.
3 And Jacob said to Joseph, God Almighty appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me.
4 And He said to me, Behold, I will make you fruitful and multiply you. And I will make of you a multitude of people, and will give this land to your seed after you [for] an everlasting possession.
5 And now your two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, who are born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you into Egypt, [are] mine; like Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine.
6 And your issue, which you father after them, shall be yours, and shall be called after the name of their brothers in their inheritance.
7 And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died beside me in the land of Canaan in the way, when [there was] still but a little way to come to Ephrath. And I buried her there in the way of Ephrath; it [is] Bethlehem.
8 And Israel beheld Joseph’s sons, and said, Who [are] these?
9 And Joseph said to his father, They [are] my sons, whom God has given me in this [place]. And he said, please bring them to me, and I will bless them.
10 And the eyes of Israel were dim for age; he could not see. And he brought them near him, and he kissed them and embraced them.
11 And Israel said to Joseph, I had not thought I would see your face, and, lo, God has showed me also your seed.
12 And Joseph brought them out from between his knees, and he bowed his face to the earth.
13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel’s left, and Manasseh in his left toward Israel’s right hand. And he brought [them] near to him.
14 And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid [it] on Ephraim’s head, who [was] the younger, and his left on Manasseh’s head, crossing his hands. For Manasseh [was] the first-born.
15 And he blessed Joseph and said, May God, [before] whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, the God who fed me all my life to this day,
16 the Angel who redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads. And let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac, and let them grow like the fishes into a multitude in the midst of the earth.
17 And Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand on the head of Ephraim, and it was evil in his eyes. And he held up his father’s hand to remove it from Ephraim’s head to Manasseh’s head.
18 And Joseph said to his father, Not so, my father. For this [is] the first-born. Put your right hand on his head.
19 And his father refused and said, I know, my son, I know. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great, but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he is, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.
20 And he blessed them that day, saying, In you shall Israel bless, saying, God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh. And he put Ephraim before Manasseh.
God’s shall establish Jew and Gentile as His 1 New Man because this has been His plan since the beginning.
Romans 11:17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them partake of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
18 Boast not against the branches. But if you boast, you bear not the root, but the root you.
19 You will say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.
20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Be not arrogant, but fear:
21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also not spare you.
22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in his goodness: otherwise you also shall be cut off.
23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.
24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, who are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
25 For I would not, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles comes in.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
Ephesians 2:11 Therefore remember, that you being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
12 That at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off are made near by the blood of Christ.
14 For he is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; to make in himself of two one new man, so making peace;
16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
17 And came and preached peace to you who were afar off, and to them that were near.
18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
19 Now therefore you are no more strangers and sojourners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together grows unto a holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom you also are built together for a habitation of God through the Spirit.
The Holy Spirit revealed to me that the exact same prophetic setting and pattern was confirmed in Zechariah 4:11 And I answered and said to him, What [are] these two olive trees on the right of the lampstand and on its left?
12 And I answered again and said to him, What [are] the two olive clusters beside the two golden pipes, emptying the golden [oil] from themselves?
13 And he answered me and said, Do you not know what these [are]? And I said, No, my lord.
14 And he said, These [are] the two sons of fresh oil who stand by the LORD of the whole earth.
The ones that shall be revealed as the 144 000 forerunner firstfruit sons AFTER THE ORDER AND SIMILITUDE OF CHRIST now comes through the purifying fires of the Spirit of burning and the Branch of the Lord shall be glorious and His harvest shall be reaped.
Isaiah 4:2 In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and splendid for them that have escaped of Israel.
3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remains in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even everyone that is recorded among the living in Jerusalem:
4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from its midst by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.
God is NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION and there’s a divine sovereign prophetic kingdom flow that proceeds from the heart of the Father through the ordained forerunner ministries within this earth.
The question asked in Psalm 24:3 Who shall ascend into the mountain of the LORD? or who shall stand in His holy place ?
…shall be fulfilled within the firstfruit sons of God according to God’s plan, will and divine purpose.
Verse 4 declares the qualifications wrought into pure vessels by the Spirit of burning – clean hands, and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
The fact that it is said of the firstfruit sons that they are virgins are perfectly in agreement with what Jesus prophetically spoke about the wise virgins OF THIS TIME in Matthew 25
1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, who took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
The 144 000 firstfruit number is the same remnant principle found within the 5 wise virgins.
It is the same as when the Lord walked the earth and instructed only twelve disciples as forerunners in the ways of God out of a whole generation.
11 remained and 1 betrayed Him. The 144 000 firstfruit forerunners are not an elite club that think themselves better than anyone else of God’s people for as we see in one of the required characteristics in Psalm 24 : 4 they lifted up not their soul unto vanity which means they come through a complete breaking, a complete stripping and a death unto self through the sacrifice of a personal cross and many afflictions through various trials as Spirit of burning burned of everything that is not of God and that does not reflect the glory and image of Christ.
In them shall be fulfilled the requirements for every overcomer.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb(FULL REDEMPTION), and by the word of their testimony(LIVES COMFORMED TO THE EXAMPLE OF CHRIST) ; and they loved not their lives unto death.(CRUCIFIED THROUGH A PERSONAL CROSS)
The fact that the 144 000 firstfruit sons were not defiled by woman means that they are not corrupted by the traditions and doctrines of men’s churches.
It means that they have been personally taught, instructed, trained and raised by the Trinity God as forerunners to the children of the FINAL GENERATION to lead and instruct them in the purity of the WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD. This is the Melchizedek priesthood of the kingdom of God.
Also in Revelation 14 you shall see the end-time harvest being released for which these forerunner bridal and corporate body of overcoming sons and daughters have travailed.
Revelation 14:14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in your sickle, and reap: for the time has come for you to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
We are not virgins any longer, as God declared to me, because a virgin has not yet been intimate with the King. We have been a pregnant bride travailing and birthing the fulness of the kingdom and the children of the final pentecost because we’ve been impregnated with nations within our spiritual wombs through our intimacy with Christ – Isaiah 66.
Now please let me give you again the blueprint of what the Father said to me about the end-time harvest.
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.
Consider the following facts disclosed by the Spirit of God through a quote from Cheryl Mcgraths teaching on The Call to Sonship. (These principles are very important to understand)
There are many in the church who aspire to mature sonship, but there are many less who have learnt the secrets of walking in it. All who enter the Kingdom are called as sons of God, but few are willing to meet the cost of becoming MANIFESTED sons.
For those who object: “but sonship belongs to ALL believers at the new birth”, I would agree and disagree. It is one thing to enjoy the TITLE of son and heir and the privileges that come with that position. It is quite another thing to submit oneself to the school of obedience and unjust suffering that produces within us the character of the Firstborn Son, to whose image all other sons are to be conformed. (Rom. 8:29) A wise father recognises all his sons as his sons, but also marks and celebrates the day of maturity when a son can be trusted with the responsibilities of a functioning heir. It is at that time that the Father’s endowment of authority in that son becomes apparent to the world.
So we are talking here not simply about the inheritance of sonship through faith, but more specifically about the unmistakable MANIFESTATION of that sonship, here on this earth and in this mortal life, that must be witnessed by creation. Those who, in the coming days, will be revealed to all creation as “manifested sons” of God will be those who have yielded to the Spirit’s training in ALL aspects of sonship, which includes the Father’s discipline (Heb. 12:6-8), and the embracing of the Cross.
There is no mysterious exclusion zone surrounding this event the scriptures refer to as “the manifestation of the sons of God” (KJV). We should not be deceived into believing this company of sons who will be revealed are an elite group of super-saints, endowed with a level of holiness not available to the average believer. On the contrary, the invitation to walk as one of these manifested sons, whom the scriptures say the whole of creation is longing to see, is an open one, available to all born-again children of God. The scriptures also make abundantly clear, however, that attaining this measure of mature sonship will involve significant cost to the flesh for those who sincerely seek to respond to it.
For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren… Hebrews 2:10-11
What form will this manifested sonship take when it appears? What nature of people are this company of believers we are told creation waits for with “anxious longing”? There is one thing of which we can be certain – as the revealed sons of God they will bear an uncanny resemblance to their elder Brother, the Firstborn Son! (end of quote)
The other group of 144 000 spoken of in Revelation 7 are of the natural seed of Abraham. These are natural Jews whereas the 144 000 in Revelation 11 are Spiritual seed of Abraham.
There is an upward call of God in Christ , the call to the mountain of God.
In the judgment of the house of the LORD God the Father shall restore the purity of His Son’s gospel through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Government flows from the throne of grace down the river of life. This river is the flow of the ministry and the life of the sevenfold Spirit of God.
The fullness of the Deity shall come forth in Person through the forerunner ministries of the manifested sons of God. These move with the Lord in governmental authority and they have been brought into agreement with the ways of God. They understand His judgments and His counsel. Every foundation that men have raised up and built upon shall experience the fire of His jealousy for have we forgotten the zeal that Christ have for His Father’s house?
He is calling a people unto himself. God is calling for a people who are willing to renounce everything that does not come from Him. He is calling a people up into His mountain, the MOUNTAIN OF ZION which is THE KINGDOM, the TABERNACLE and the DWELLING PLACE OF GOD.
1 A Psalm of David. LORD, who shall abide in your tabernacle? who shall dwell in your holy hill?
2 He that walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.
3 He that backbites not with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor.
4 In whose eyes a vile person is despised; but he honors them that fear the LORD. He that swears to his own hurt, and changes not.
5 He that puts not out his money at interest, nor takes reward against the innocent. He that does these things shall never be moved.
I saw a vision of the bride of the Lord pursuing God down the river of life according to Ezekiel 47. That vision is recorded as follows.
Ezek 47:1 Afterward he brought me again to the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar. 2 Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without to the utter gate by the way that looks eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side. 3 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.4 Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins. 5 Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.
The different levels of that river speak of our levels of surrender as we willingly yield our lives to the cleansing fire and ministry of the Holy Spirit flowing from the throne of grace. We must become a people whom the Lord has conquered and we must pursue God until our lives are completely immersed by His Spirit until we move in sync with the Trinity God according to God’s vision, desire and purpose for the earth.
Deuteronomy 10:14 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens belongs to the LORD your God, the earth also, with all that is in it.
It’s harvest time!
Did you realize that King David’s army was 288,000 men strong?
King David maintained a standing army consisting of 12 divisions, each one representing one tribe of Israel. Each division numbered 24,000 men. Thus, King David’s army totalled 288,000 men.
This is a prophetic picture of the 2 groups of 144 000 Jew and Gentile One New Man manifested sons of God in this final generation.
The house of David.
By Pieter Kirstein
In the Old Testament (1 Chronicles 27) we find that king David had an army that totaled 288,000 men (2×144,000). David also had a choir that was made up of 288 people. A military of 288,000, and a choir of 288 (2×144,000 and 2×144).
