Refinery in the Green with Pipes

Pipes! by bobaliciouslondon, on Flickr

Words in corporate prayer of Lebendiges Wasser on Tuesday Oct 16, 2012

Anita had a vision of a refinery with a myriad of pipes in the midst of fields from a birds view. The pipes were extending into the fields which were in shades of green and yellow and white. New fields were added and connected to the pipe system and turned green or yellow or white. The pipe system was very complicated.

Ria saw a massive pipe with water running rapidly through it, rushing into different directions towards all churches of KDI.

Here we offer some thoughts we had with this:

A refinery cleans oil into different classes, from diesel to airplane kerosine. In reverse of the principle, the oil of the Spirit refines the factory it flows through: us. Or maybe the money that will be flowing has to be refined?

In order to refine the oil, there has to be heat. Oil has several points of heat it vaporizes at, depending on the length of carbon chains. This makes the different qualities and uses of oil products. But there has to be heat to refine. Something has to burn. Let's look at what we already have and bring it into the refinement process and not fall into the trap of living in the future: we believe, we invest our faith, we pray, but essentially we wait for the thing to happen. No, let's burn what we have to refine what is coming.

The pipe system being complicated might mean that it is not clear where this all comes from - apart from coming from God. We do not have to know nor do we have to try to figure it out. It just flows.

New fields of responsibility are given over time, new areas of investment. Seems we just provide the pipes and let the oil flow - nobody seen working in the fields, but they grow to maturity - look at the fields, they are white for harvest. The different colors might represent different fruit, or different currencies and bills.

These words connect tightly into former expressions like: Wells connected underground. We heard earlier that the pipelines are being built. Later that they are finished. Then that the valves are being opened. Now there is a flow.

It is here. It is getting refined and starts to flow towards all the fields and all the churches. Expect.

Sons of the Spirit


The plan of God is not something that human intellect can interpret or even understand. The plan of God is a spiritual matter that can only be interpreted by the spirit through faith. Often times we find ourselves struggling and I believe this is solely because we tend to mingle spiritual things with natural things. This is like trying to mix oil and water, no matter how hard you try, a separation will always occur.

We by nature are spiritual creatures and thus it is only normal for us to live by the spirit but the problem that often occurs is that we forget who we are and we can slip into the delusion that we are natural people. This delusion causes us to measure life and success according to external things that the five senses can relate to. When we do this we find ourselves on the outside of God and His Kingdom trying to look in. One cannot see the things of the Kingdom from the outside; it can only be seen from the inside through faith.

What then is the answer? Well instead of looking for a single answer, why not walk out the journey? The spiritual life is a continuum, it is practised daily. The spiritual life is to continually live one step beyond your understanding. It is in this one step that we find Christ daily, that we experience Christ daily. It is in this one step that we begin to experience what the Bible calls faith. Always remember that there is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path. It is in walking that faith comes alive and spirituality becomes the normal.

1Corinthians 2:7-16(NLT) No, the wisdom we speak of is the mystery of God—His plan that was previously hidden, even though He made it for our ultimate glory before the world began. 2:8 But the rulers of this world have not understood it; if they had, they would not have crucified our glorious Lord. 2:9 That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him." 2:10 But it was to us that God revealed these things by His Spirit. For His Spirit searches out everything and shows us God's deep secrets. 2:11 No one can know a person's thoughts except that person's own spirit, and no one can know God's thoughts except God's own Spirit. 2:12 And we have received God's Spirit (not the world's spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us. 2:13 When we tell you these things, we do not use words that come from human wisdom. Instead, we speak words given to us by the Spirit, using the Spirit's words to explain spiritual truths. 2:14 But people who aren't spiritual can't receive these truths from God's Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can't understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. 2:15 Those who are spiritual can evaluate all things, but they themselves cannot be evaluated by others. 2:16 For, "Who can know the LORD's thoughts? Who knows enough to teach Him?" But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ.

So don't throw it all away now

Breakthrough
So don't throw it all away now. You were sure of yourselves then. It's still a sure thing! But you need to stick it out, staying with God's plan so you'll be there for the promised completion.
Heb 10:35-36 (Msg)
In prayer and meditating on this I felt we all need to take great courage in the Word(s) which have been spoken to us corporately and individually over the last 2-3 decades. GOD is not a man that HE would lie - greatness lies at our feet - we have had great days in the past, however nothing compared to that which is upon us!

Word for KDI by Ernie Hammond


There are times in my dealings with you my people when I bring you to a place that I have ordained – a place to be remembered for the rest of your lives, a place of crisis, a place of turning, a place which opens up a new vista of progress for my Kingdom. This day I have brought you to such a place.

And in the days to come you will look back to this day and say, as you say in your hearts now “It is the Lord”.

My children I have waited for this day for a long, long time. I have patiently waited. I have seen the inner struggles and the travails. I have witnessed the frustrations. I have seen the defeats and I have witnessed the victories which have been mine.

Yet through every moment I have been preparing you; you have built your dreams, you have seen great things in your imaginations and yet, as Peter came out of the fishing boat to meet me, you too, must come out naked.

Thus all these circumstances I have ordained for you to bring you to this place, where you stand before me naked of even your fisherman’s cloak. It is not that I look upon your nakedness, because I clothe you with a robe of righteousness and mantle you with my Spirit. I equip you with all that you need.

Yet from this day you are going into greater battles, into a greater realm of usefulness and into the fulfilment of the ministries that I have given to you. For I am preparing my church. Carefully am I preparing it. I watch over my church as I watch over you my children. It goes into the refining pot and the dross is being dealt with. But I would encourage you at this hour because I can see my reflection clearer and clearer as my church, my body is coming forth into the realms and dimensions which I have chosen for it.

But as I witness my church coming forth, I witness too that the enemy is gathering together his forces. I am equipping my church and the enemy is defeated. Not only do I encourage my children, I exhort you and warn you that it is a battle. And to this moment in measure, my church has not been able to face the battle as it should.

But you are being prepared and I am sending you forth. I encourage you that as you receive my word and I have heard and seen your determination, my presence is going to become more real to you in the measure that you seek my face.

Let me counsel you “Do not speak unless I tell you to speak” that mantle of mine, that anointing which is already upon you will be manifested in greater measure in you and through you. For I do not always see you as people see you. The place I wish to see you so that I might empower you and teach you is the place of aloneness with myself.

For I would give revelation to you, revelation of my plans for your own life and for the work because my servants you cannot go forth without my plans and strategy. And in the place of seeking my face I will give you such a revelation, and as you walk the revelation I will give you more and more.

For as I have repeatedly said and will say again how the nations of this world will know a visitation of my Spirit that has not yet been dreamed of. But I am preparing my church so that no flesh will glory in it in my presence I so that no ministry shall glory on my presence so that all the praise and glory shall go to the son of my right hand.

Go forth in my name; rejoice in that you are the chosen of the Lord. Look to me from whence comes all your strength – your hope – your everything. Because you have responded to my voice this day and re-affirmed the covenant you made years ago, before much time has elapsed you will see demonstrations of my power and manifestations of my glory in the midst of you as a people.

Dividing Line

We’ve just entered the third month of 2012 and already the dividing line is being drawn. I am referring to the insights we received for 2012 “When 2012 comes to conclusion you will find two camps in Christendom, one group will be business as usual and the other will enter into a new domain in Christ and experience the reality of 2 Corinthians 5:17 (Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new).” It is as if this is literally unfolding before our eyes. Here at the Rainbow Centre we are seeing people pressing in into a greater reality in Christ Jesus and are experiencing an exciting new life where all things are becoming new and at the same time we see people that are living their Christianity in the business as usual mode.

There is a great danger in living in the business as usual mode; a place where routine is the way. We find ourselves doing all the right things on the outside (or at least we think so) yet the internal reality is diminishing. (2 Timothy 3:5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.)

The season that we are in demands us all to see what we cannot see, to hear what we cannot hear and to press into the new life that the Holy Spirit is crying out for inside each one of us. This is the life of faith and this is the life for this new season!

Word for KDI


A word given by Anita during prayer Tuesday evening (2-28-2012):

The ways I made were not here yesterday and cannot be destroyed by tomorrow. These are ways that testify of my greatness.

People will marbel and ask: "Who is this people that walks these ways? And who is this people that follows these water streams? Who is this people that walks from power to power, parting at each fork, yet not gets smaller?"

It is you, and each of these pathways leads to a place I want to have you at.
And they will say: "Look, they do not go past their destiny, nor do get lost before."

But I say No. They will go exactly where I lead them.

Smithers

I am often amazed at God’s timing and how He orchestrates seasons and events and culminates them to a specific location at a specific time. Such was the case in Smithers BC during the first week of February this year. We experienced a divine demarcation point in the Kingdom timeline and watched as The Father Himself through different vessels promoted and released different ones into greater Kingdom purpose. One such event was the acknowledgement and releasing of David Gladstone aka David Happyrock into the apostolic venue that God has purposed in him for the northern regions to reach into the underground cisterns and the uncapping of the foretold wells of glory that run from Saskatoon to Alaska.

I know that even for myself I have never experienced the intensity of heavenly pressure quite like this before. There was a great sense of purpose, God wanted something specifically done and there was a demand in the spirit to focus in, to be ready and to reach into the specific gracing’s so purpose could be established. This was more than just a meeting and this speaks to me that we must be careful in this season, life is not business as usual and it would be very easy to miss what the Spirit of God is doing with the mindset that this is just another church meeting. We are living in a specific time with specific things that The Lord wants to accomplish in the earth and we as the people of God must press in even closer if we are going to see and even enter into the Kingdom purpose for this season.

New Year and Fresh Season

This new year and fresh season has brought an interesting mix. While there is a great expectation in the spirit for what in directly in front of us, there is an even greater press for concentrated prayer and intercession for this season. We are also finding Mark 4:22 happening exceedingly fast as well. Hidden things are being revealed, and secret things are being exposed. That which people are hiding is being seen and shown openly, that holiness may come if it is wanted - too few choose it. Here in Nimpo Lake, we are seeing new people coming out to services on an increasingly regular basis. Harvest is here, but the family of God must first be positioned. We are also learning what we hold to out of religious tradition, and what we do out of relationship with God. While the walking out of the two may not appear too different, the results are like night and day.

Thank you so much to all those who pray for KDI. Your prayers are what enable us to do all that we are. Your continued prayer will help us arrive in our destiny, both corporately and in the local houses.
A couple of thoughts to ponder in closing:

The greatest killer of the fire of the Holy Spirit is the wet blanket of self.
Unless we learn how to be parented by the Father, we can never become the Bride God needs us to be. 

Blessings

The New Season

The Elder's meeting in December was far more than a group of guys and gals working through differences unto a common purpose, I believe we waged war in the heavenlies. There is a new door open in the spirit and we have walked through. Expectations are high, yet the challenges ahead are even greater. The Holy Spirit is walking Robin and myself into arenas of the Spirit that are not comfortable and we walk with little understanding. For us I believe the challenge of the hour is to trust beyond our understanding and that trust will bring us into the fruition of the new season. For all of us the call is beyond our abilities, yet we have been placed here for such a time as this and the fact that we are placed here insures me that in Christ we are more than able, no matter what the task that lies ahead.
