A Day of Open Doors
Wanda and I are just completing a series of meetings that have taken us to Smith Station, Alabama; Shreveport, Louisiana; Red Deer, Alberta, Canada; and finally, Corinth, Texas. Throughout those meetings a very clear thread of revelation has been coming. In retrospect, we are discovering that the emphasis we are hearing now is not on new revelation but upon prophetic perspectives that we have already shared previously that are now coming to a place of heightened application.
Clearly, we stand before the dual open doors of "opportunity" and "revelation." One is horizontal and runs linear through time, leading us into the harvest and is identified with Revelation 3:7-8, while the other is vertical into the Heavens and identified with Revelation 4:1. We shared details on this perspective in our recent SOS meeting. I also spoke about it at Chuck Pierce's Open Door Conference the first week of August.
The intent of this newsletter is to briefly highlight some of these perspectives and prophetic themes that we believe will be taking place imminently in the days ahead. Many of these revelations will have an initiation but will run progressively until the end of the age. In the final analysis, there is a remnant company that has been stirred by God's Spirit and is being positioned to steward both anointing and authority for this season. It is a new day, and as Chuck Pierce has prophesied, "a time of unbridled power and authority."
We trust these revelations will be a blessing and provide insight and encouragement.
Kindest regards and blessings,
Paul Keith & Wanda Davis and the WhiteDove Team
A Day of Open Doors
This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
This is a day of destiny that the Lord has made! We have crossed a threshold in Heaven's timeline. The Bible calls it the "fullness of time." The apostle Paul in his epistle to the Galatians stated,
"But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, 'Abba! Father!'" (Galatians 4:4-6).
The central theme of our revelations highlights our position in modern Church history and prophetic destiny in God. We are Biblically promised a generation who will be:
1. The Greater Works Generation (John 14:12)
2. The Plumb-Line/Capstone Generation (Zechariah 4)
3. The Restoration of All Things Generation (Hebrews 6:5)
4. The Righteous Generation (Psalm 14)
5. The Generation Who Will Seek His Face (Psalm 24)
6. The Latter Rain Generation (Joel 2)
7. The Bride's Revival Generation (John 20:21)
8. The Mature Sons of the Kingdom (Matthew 13)
9. The Third Day Generation (Hosea 6:2)
10. The Fullness Generation (Ephesians 4:13)
These will be the "sons of the Kingdom" who carry the Sevenfold Spirit of God that rested upon the Lord Himself in His perfect example of a Son of the Kingdom.
This is a day in which many promises will be apprehended and divine destiny achieved. Over the past several years there have been messages of preparation sounded as a clarion call to the Bride of Christ to prepare for the coming battle. Those individuals who have heeded this call and allowed the sifting and pruning process will begin to emerge with considerable anointing and authority. For them, this will be a day of substantial advancement.
Preparing the Way
Throughout Biblical history we can see God's hand taking His servants through various trials and character-molding journeys. The design is to bring them out on the other side with the revelation of His nature. Though the passage may at times seem difficult, it is for our benefit in order to steward faithfully God's provision. The time for the apprehension of promises is now upon us.
The Bible clearly outlines that every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of Lights. God is Light and in Him there is no shifting shadow. Consequently, we are likewise called to be light in the midst of a dark generation.
It was by His own will that he gave us birth as "sons of the Kingdom" by His Word of Truth. We are designated to be a form of first fruits of His creation and a representation of what the "sons of the Kingdom" are called and consecrated to be.
Through his epistle to the Ephesians, the apostle Paul admonishes us to conduct ourselves as children of light. He said,
"Therefore do not be partakers with them; for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord" (Ephesians 5:7-10).
The surest evidence of the "children of Light" and God's true leadership will be the clear presence of the fruit of the Spirit. God's righteousness will begin to reflect the Spirit's nature in our lives. The display of His character in us is ultimately pleasing to the Lord and the reflection of His Light that we must possess.
In my book, "Angels That Gather," I outlined the mark of the "sons of the Kingdom" as highlighted in Matthew 13 saying,
"The One who sows the good seed is the Son of Man, and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the Kingdom...the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are angels" (Matthew 13:37-39).
If we are to be the "light" of the world, we will possess qualities consistent with "sons of the Kingdom" and children of light by allowing Christ to be fully manifested in us. The identification, anointing and purpose of this company who overcomes are listed below.
1. Their Identification: The manifestation of the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-24).
2. Their Anointing: The Seven Spirits of God (Isaiah 11:2).
3. Their Purpose: To reveal the twelve names illustrating the divine character of God and His primary redemptive attributes manifested in the Person of Jesus.
Repairing the Breach
The Lord is indicating His desire to restore through His Church His original mandate for man and fully heal the breach that has existed since man's fall in the garden. Our cities will reflect Heaven's light only to the degree that the saints within them do so.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in Heaven. Matthew 5:14-16
One of the primary strategies to win our cities is through unity of the brethren. If the Lord can find just a few willing to live together in harmony with a common cause of advancing God's Kingdom, then He will pour out a special anointing of grace and favor that will illuminate our dwelling places. We will have unity to the degree that Christ is formed in us.
When this takes place we will then carry the battle to enemy gates and invade our cities with the ministry of restoration and awakening. We will help those who once experienced failure find their rightful place in the Body of Christ. We will also retrieve those of our brethren who have fallen and begin to rejuvenate them into a new walk with Christ while also rescuing the unbelieving from the snare of the evil one.
The Lord recently expressed His desire to deal with the strongholds in us so we can deal with the strongholds in our churches, cities and nation. The Holy Spirit spoke to me in a meeting and said, "If the people will allow Me to remove the stumbling blocks within them, I will then remove the ones before them."
God's people are called to be the repairers of the breach and restorers of streets and dwellings. Isaiah 58:12 declares,
"Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; you will raise up the age-old foundations; and you will be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of the streets in which to dwell."
In order to do that effectively in our cities, the Lord is sending "angels that gather" out His Kingdom all things offensive to Him so that He can reflect His Light through us.
Our churches and cities will exhibit Heaven's Light to the extent that the righteous within them do so. The Lord promised that,
"The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His Kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then THE RIGHTEOUS WILL SHINE FORTH AS THE SUN in the Kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear" (Matthew 13:41-43).
Shining Like the Sun/Son in the Kingdom
The Bible tells us that the Kingdom of Heaven is within us. The righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of our Father when the tares and stumbling blocks have been extracted from our soul. Light dispels the darkness of our soul as He lights the candle of our innermost being.
The Lord clothes Himself in light as with a virtuous garment to depict His great authority in Heaven and in creation. We are likewise called to be endowed with the raiment of light that proceeds from Him. We are summoned to be the light and salt of the earth.
The pure white light of Heaven will proceed from the Throne to be imparted into the spirit and soul of the Lord's people to make us divine carriers of His virtue. Many will encounter the Light of Heaven in private worship and in corporate settings in amplified ways over the coming months and years. This Light will manifest as the Sevenfold Spirit of God in the same way that pure white light directed through a prism highlights the seven colors of the spectrum.
This is the day that individuals will begin to walk in the light of revelation they possess. There must be an experiential quality to our walk with the Lord. Not only do we experience Him in a tangible way, but also in practical ways that exude the spiritual Light that has been deposited within us.
This is the model for the lost to be drawn to the Kingdom of Light; then the masses will be drawn to our light and fulfill the prophecies of Daniel when he said,
"Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of Heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever" (Daniel 12:3).
We have now crossed a threshold into the place where we begin to do what we have for so long talked about. This is especially true in the Western Church. This is the day of Lights or the day that people began to walk in the Light of Heaven.
We as a generation have come to a "fullness of time" crossroad in God's plan of progressive restoration. We are assigned the ministry of recovery and reconciliation, and the next installment is at the door. It will be marked by notable expression of power with emphasis on the recovery of sight to the blind. It will take place in the natural to indicate a spiritual reality. Matthew 9:29 (Amplified) says,
"Then He touched their eyes, saying, 'According to your faith and trust and reliance [on the power invested in Me] be it done to you.'"
Re-Digging the Wells
The job of the righteous will be to redeem that which the enemy has stolen and re-dig wells that once flourished with God's healing virtue. The Lord is going to touch blind eyes and execute the recovery of sight both naturally and spiritually.
We will especially be called to recover and heal those who have been wounded in the Church. The "blind, lame and halt" are to be revitalized by those developing in righteousness; thereby retaking ground previously relented to the enemy.
Even the gifts of the Spirit that have been stolen or perverted by the enemy will be redeemed during the coming year and the years to follow. The righteous must begin to restore all of these things the enemy has successfully stolen or perverted within the Church, especially the ministry of healing.
Highlighted revelatory truth is being set before us through words that are not taught by human wisdom, but by the Holy Spirit. It is the consolidation of spiritual truth with spiritual language in and through those possessing the Spirit of Understanding. There are corporate and personal messages proceeding from God's heart relative to our destiny and position in Heaven's economy. Paul said,
"Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words" (1 Corinthians 2:12-13).
Having the understanding that the Lord is grooming us for something significant transforms our mindset and generates hope to displace hopelessness. Without this comprehension we would indeed experience profound hopelessness and despair. A double portion restoration and return is our legacy.
Our council is to cooperate with Heaven and do only what we see the Father doing and say only what we hear Him saying. The Lord is opening our eyes and ears with the Spirit of Understanding so that our discernment is taken to greater levels to accomplish this purpose.
There has been a sifting of our soul and the establishment of contrition, humility and meekness in order to carry greater levels of power and authority. The Spirit of Understanding will bring illumination to this reality and mobilize God's people for this great task.
Bind Kindness and Truth Around Your Neck
Kindness and truth are indispensable ingredients necessary in God's formula to awaken this generation (Proverbs 3:3-4). The Holy Spirit has been punctuating this reality in recent days. If we embody and convey the Lord's meekness we will also share in His power; if we share in His obedience we will also share is His resurrection.
The Spirits of Wisdom and Revelation entrusted to us have been unfolding spiritual blueprints and strategies for this day. Many intercessory groups and ministries have seen these outlines and sown revelatory prayer for their fulfillment. The prophetic day they foresaw is now upon us. This day will be like the one Ezekiel spoke of saying,
"Son of man, what is this proverb you people have concerning the land of Israel, saying, 'The days are long and every vision fails'? Therefore say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "I will make this proverb cease so that they will no longer use it as a proverb in Israel."'
"But tell them, 'The days draw near as well as the fulfillment of every vision. For there will no longer be any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel. For I the LORD will speak, and whatever word I speak will be performed. It will no longer be delayed, for in your days, O rebellious house, I will speak the word and perform it,' declares the Lord GOD" (Ezekiel 12:21-25).
Over the past season many prophetic proclamations and decrees have gone forth. However, we have seen little in the way of significant fulfillment. However, that trend is now changing.
As it was with the prophecies of Ezekiel, so shall it be today. No longer will the proverb be spoken that the visions linger and their fulfillment is delayed. We will now begin to see a more sure word of prophecy emerging that will be accomplished.
The Scriptures plainly point out that the Lord ever lives to make intercession on our behalf and if there was ever a time to draw near to God, it is this generation. The Lord is continuing to ask the Church to join Him in His heart of intercession for this prophetic generation. When we do, our prophetic decrees will be more accurate because they are generated from the Lord's heart. He will put a word in our mouths to,
"Pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant. The word of the LORD came to me saying, 'What do you see, Jeremiah?' And I said, 'I see a rod of an almond tree.' Then the LORD said to me, 'You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it'" (Jeremiah 1:10-12).
Fully Preaching Christ
Clearly we are living in a day when miracles, signs and wonders are an essential aspect of our New Testament heritage (Romans 15:18-19). As in the early Church, God's healing power and extraordinary exploits provide Heaven's validation necessary to meet the great needs of the masses.
Our message must be confirmed with the miraculous to be most effective. However, the greatest application will be the spiritual awakening of God's people to receive spiritual eyes to see and ears to hear. We must alleviate the mistakes of the past and recognize our day of visitation.
After 40 years of governing the people of Israel while in the wilderness, Moses came to the end of the journey and provided a revealing discovery that prohibited that generation from entering the promise. He admonished them with a rehearsal of the great and awesome deeds and demonstrations of the Lord's power performed in their midst. Nonetheless, Moses also pointed out a sad reality – that that generation did not receive the promise because, he said,
"To this day the LORD has not given you a heart to know, nor eyes to see, nor ears to hear" (Deuteronomy 29:4).
What a great lesson for us to learn in our day. Although we can witness notable expressions of spiritual power and authority, that in itself is not enough. It remains essential for us to receive an impartation from the Holy Spirit to possess eyes and ears open to His truth and hearts of understanding.
Without that spiritual endowment, we cannot enter the fullness of the promise. Not only do we have an inheritance in Him, but He also has an inheritance in us. Our spiritual eyes and ears must be opened to facilitate that union.
Eyes & Ears
It is an important spiritual mandate to have enlightened eyes to see where we are presently placed in human history and the unfolding of God's redemptive plan. Equally as important are gifted eyes that can see ahead to our prophetic destination. From this perspective we can set our sights on the goal of our faith, as well as recognizing the snares and traps of the enemy intended to hinder our ability to get there.
On one unique occasion the prophet Elisha, who had spiritual insight as to where he was and where he was going, boldly stood before the armies of the king of Aram. He could do so because of the spirit of wisdom and revelation that rested upon his life. When his servant nervously recited what his natural eyes were seeing, the prophet prayed, "'O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.' And the LORD opened the servant's eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha."
With that prayer, an impartation of spiritual sight was given to the servant. Through that blessing, he discovered with his spiritual eyes the armies of Heaven and chariots of fire that surrounded God's servant (2 Kings 6:17-18).
With spiritual vision, fear is replaced with faith and a comprehension of the reality that there are more for us than for the enemy. Nothing changed in this scenario except the vision of Elisha's servant. Without question, his faith level soared. His countenance and courage were not merely based upon the things his natural eyes were seeing, but now his spiritual eyes provided clarity to the entire picture. The same is true today! Supernatural revelation will take us out of rounds of fear and anxiety into the dimensions of God's faith.
