Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called sons of God.
THE PEACE OF HIS PRESENCE
The peace of God’s presence is the mightiest weapon there is against the fear and unrest the enemy sows among men. It is our Father Himself in whose presence evil flees. Jesus gave us this peace that the world cannot give or understand, and those who are His sons bear it. For His sons are peacemakers and where they go the peace of God goes. Because where they go the presence of the Almighty goes.
THE COMING OF DIVINE UNITY The Spirit of God is expressly speaking that the time is NOW for His body to come into unity of mind, heart, and purpose. There is only one source of unity in the body of Christ; God’s presence that is manifest by His peace and results in peace between brothers. Unity does not come by doctrine, church leadership, or any other external order; ONLY by Holy Spirit in the bond of the peace.
Efforts of men have failed to bring about the unity of Spirit among those claiming the name of Jesus. The wisdom and works of men in the name of peace have only built Babylon and its systems that enslave men. Many live under the false pretense that correct doctrine unifies them. I have been guilty myself of dividing and uniting under the banner of correct doctrine. Thankfully our unity is not found in doctrine, but in Holy Spirit. Father in His great mercy is bringing to bear the peace of His presence to deliver His own. His abiding peace is the measure of whether we are unified around a doctrine or ONE in and with Him.
THE AGE OF KINGDOM FULLNESS We are leaving the age of the diaspora of truth and authority (competing doctrines and divisions) and coming into the age of ONE expression of the mind and heart of God; His mind, His heart, His purposes expressed in His people. When the full measure of the stature of Christ is revealed in us; our minds and our hearts will be revealed as His, and the kingdom of God is made manifest to all men. The kingdom of God is simplistic at its core; it is God's will being done through the agency of man. And through the agency of man the fullness of God in Christ will be manifest to all creation.
DEEPER REST We will see a move of the Spirit like never before when the revelation of Christ in us removes any need for us to defend what He is doing, or be critical of those who oppose what He is doing... His emphasis on grace in these days has been preparing us to be conduits of a grace and love toward men that is above and beyond what we have ever known. A love that brings peace on earth and good will to men; not just a feeling of peace, but a peace that shakes the powers of the earth.
Isa 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end…
Years ago I received a word from Father. He said “One day the Israelis will gladly share their land with the Palestinians”, a sign that peace and reconciliation of God’s kingdom and presence had come. Yet I still meet some Christians who believe Palestinians are the Amalekites of the Old Testament and should be killed.
Because of the evil done by men it is hard to see things from God’s perspective, and we can easily pass judgment from our own perspectives because of the offense and horror of evil. But, reconciliation is the heart of God, and if the kingdom is to come upon earth as it is in heaven it includes all people groups. His kingdom is practical, it is real, and it changes history.
CALLED AS PEACEMAKERS
The Spirit of God has spoken clearly that for us to do the greater works with the sovereign presence of God moving in and through us we must allow His Love to deliver us from the judgments we pass upon others regardless of the evil they have done.
I have been clearly spoken to by Father that wherever I continue to pass my own judgments I abdicate any authority to release the peace of the presence of God in those places. He wants to manifest the peace of His presence sovereignly through His sons, but their judgments keep Him from doing so.
We are called as peacemakers; in other words: those who carry the peace of His presence into places where there is no peace. This includes the great divisions and competing doctrines in the church AND the war torn world.
We have a choice, carry the peace of the presence of God or our own judgments. Letting go our judgments allows true judgment to come forth. When man’s acceptance or rejection of us is no longer because of personal judgments, they condemn or exonerate themselves by accepting or rejecting Him, not a judgment we have made against them.
GREATER GLORY Many people speak of a great move of God greater than in all the moves in history. We cannot do what we've always done and expect different results. The Spirit is speaking clearly. God desires to flood the earth with the peace of His presence as we His peacemaker’s go forth with God’s love for man and hearts free of judgment towards men.
This move we desire is the Sons of God being revealed as peacemakers (Matt. 5:9) bringing the peace of His presence which destroys and judges all bondage and evil. His peace brings the fall of Babylon, His peace brings the destruction of religion. This overwhelming peace of His presence unifies His people and delivers and saves the lost and brings freedom... His peace and the revealing of His peacemakers is a sign that the KINGDOM HAS COME!
