"MOBILIZING THE BODY"
Plus: "Revelation For Our Present Condition
and the Joseph Calling"
By Paul Keith Davis, with Bob Jones
The year 2004 has already begun to take shape as a season of advance
and confrontation. The 1 Kings 18 & 19 model is presently in place
for the addressing of self-serving leadership within the Church
by the Holy Spirit. Perhaps all of us have elements of this in us
that must be laid at the altar as we judge ourselves in order not
to be judged. Like David, our earnest cry should be to create within
us a pure, clean heart with right motives, without selfish ambition.
We are incredibly needy, and like Solomon, incapable in our own
capacity to "know how to go out or come in." (1 Kings 3:7) Rarely
has a generation been in such desperate need of a visitation from
heaven and impartations of great grace. Thankfully we have the prophetic
promise that unprecedented measures of favor and grace are set apart
for the people known as the "capstone" generation coming with shouts
of "grace, grace."
Imitate Their Faith
Our admonition in Hebrews 13:7 is to examine the faithfulness of
our leaders who have gone before us to observe and scrutinize their
conduct and the results of their lives. We are then charged to imitate
their faith because Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and
forever. We are not necessarily called to emulate their personal
style or patterns and formulas, but to imitate their faith. In so
doing, the Lord will do through us what he did through them, with
mighty expressions of power and authority.
It was our privilege this past weekend to be on the leadership team
with a couple from Tacoma, Washington who were part of the Latter
Rain revival of 1948 in North Battleford, Saskatchewan. It was an
incredible encouragement to spend time with humble and contrite
vessels who gave first-hand testimony of the awesome demonstrations
of God's virtue just one generation ago. In fact, the wife was healed
of barrenness in a William Branham meeting and now has three grown
sons as her testimony. She testified how the manifest presence of
God came into the meeting and overshadowed her, restoring her female
organs and granting the promise of fruitfulness.
We felt the Lord indicating that we are at the door of another expression
of spiritual outpouring that will be as impacting as the Latter
Rain revival. If we will imitate the faith of those who touched
the heart of God to receive the anointing, we will likewise encounter
heaven and be entrusted with His virtue. A study of their lives
will also help us alleviate the potholes and snares that cause derailment
This is not a time to coast, but to press in all the more, despite
circumstances. This is a pivotal year both naturally and spiritually.
The Church is being called to stand in the gap for our President
in this crucial election year. It will have direct implications
upon the Church. We fervently believe George W. Bush is the Lord's
choice. We must involve ourselves in this process through prayer
and natural support.
Warmest blessings of grace and peace,
Paul Keith & Wanda and the WhiteDove team
attending a series of prophetic leadership meetings in January 2004,
the Lord has been speaking to us very pointedly about the separation
within the Church that is directly ahead of us. There are ancient
spiritual enemies that infiltrated the early church following the
Day of Pentecost that have now come to a place of maturity. Likewise,
the children of Light must also achieve a place of maturity in order
to engage the adversary. The Lord is pressing us to "restore the
land and make them inherit the desolate heritages." (Isaiah 49:8)
As we have often emphasized, our conflict is not with flesh and
blood, but with spiritual forces usurping a place of dominion in
the heavenly places. Ours is a spiritual foe! The battle will be
won in the realm of the spirit, and will liberate people held hostage
by spirits of intimidation, manipulation and control.
It is reasonably easy to recognize blatant perversion, unbelief
and spiritism that permeates the spirit of this world. However,
the more difficult confrontation lies within the Church and the
false spirits that masquerade as authentic spiritual authority.
However, through the development of discernment and an examination
of spiritual fruit, a distinction can be noted as we approach maturity.
The Scripture declares:
"Solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their
senses trained to discern good and evil." Hebrews 5:14
It seems to be high on the Holy Spirit's agenda to deal with these
influences that desire to separate the people from the walk of intimacy
that the Lord so emphatically desires.
One such spirit is identified as the spirit of the Nicolaitans.
We recognize this spirit raising its evil head at the very outset
of the early Apostolic church during the Ephesian church age. It
represents a perverted form of leadership that has as its objective
the very opposite motive of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of the Lord
will draw the people to the Lord Jesus, while this counterfeit influence
seeks to separate the people from the Lord. The Nicolaitan spirit
will masquerade as a true governmental body wielding counterfeit
spiritual authority, subtly using fear, manipulation and control
to achieve its agenda.
As in the days of Elijah, a confrontation with the prophets of Baal
is imminent. The Nicolaitan spirit will be challenged in this hour.
The term "Nicolaitan" is derived from two Greek words: "Nikos" and
"Laos." Nikos is defined as: a conquest; victory; triumph; to conquer;
and by implication, dominancy over the defeated. The word "nicao"
literally means; to dominate-intimidate-manipulate. Additionally,
the term "laos" means "the people" or the "laity." Thus exacting
the phrase "to conquer (dominate-intimidate-manipulate) the people
A careful examination of church history will readily highlight the
Nicolaitan movement that marked the beginning of an unrighteous
priesthood within the Church. Again, our intent is to identify the
spiritual influences that have successfully stolen the inheritance
of the saints throughout the Church ages. In so doing, we will be
more amply poised to "overcome" in our quest to be seated with Christ
on His throne, as He likewise overcame.
Equipping the Saints
It is the call of genuine governmental leadership to equip the people
to do the work of the ministry. (Ephesians 4:11-12) The apostle
Paul was willing to lay down his life for the people to whom he
ministered. He did not lord his spiritual authority over the people,
but readily poured himself out for the sake of the Lord's Church.
That quality is the predominant separation between the genuine and
the counterfeit forms of leadership.
The true leadership model is not that of a pyramid, but an inverted
pyramid. True spiritual fathers will take great joy in seeing their
spiritual offspring flourish in their relationship with the Lord
and the impartation of the grace gifts. The Lord clearly expressed
his disgust and hatred for the Nicolaitan spirit and its corrupt
agenda. In fact, those who shared His disdain for this evil opposition
were commended. (Ephesians 2:6) For those entrusted with the great
end-time deposits of power and authority, there can be no intimidating,
controlling or power-hungry prejudices exercising counterfeit authority
over the sheep.
The Nicolaitan spirit will target Christians who have lost their
"first-love" affections for the Lord. The enemy meticulously orchestrates
a series of life events that cool our affections for the things
of the Spirit, with the intended hope of imparting apathy and lethargy.
Hope deferred will make the heart sick! If accomplished, the door
is then opened to this form of leadership that directs the focus
of the people away from the Lord.
Thankfully, the Spirit of wisdom and revelation are promised to
each believer, affording understanding of our rich inheritance in
Christ. The Lord is granting the Spirit of revelation to open "eyes
and ears" to a place of fellowship with Him that is displacing hopelessness.
In its place, "first-love" affections are being re-ignited. Holy
desperation is saturating the hearts of a bridal company who will
not be satisfied merely hearing the testimony of others who have
encountered the Lord Jesus - they must have their own experiential
In John 10 there is a clear admonition from the Lord stating, "My
sheep hear My voice, and I know them and they follow me." We are
promised the ability to experientially apprehend the revelation
of His Voice. The more acutely familiar we are with His Voice, the
more capable we become of recognizing the counterfeit. There has
been a carefully orchestrated plot of the adversary to steal this
aspect of our heritage. The desolate heritage of the saints is being
restored. The progressive restoration promised in Joel 2:25 is presently
taking place. The doors of Heaven are being opened, granting unprecedented
access to the realm of the Spirit and fellowship with Heaven. The
Lord prophetically outlined this privilege when He said,
"To Him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear His voice, and
He calls His own sheep by name and leads them out." John 10:3
The Lord is calling us by name and leading us out of the dungeons
of bondage and oppression into a place of freedom and liberty. Where
the Spirit of the Lord is, there is emancipation. There will be
an overcoming army emerging in this hour. The invitation is being
issued to enter into a place of fellowship with the Lord that will
equip us for this long foretold confrontation. The Nicolaitan spirit
can no longer hold hostage the Bride of Christ, who is destined
to be joined with the Lord in a promised union.
Fourfold Apostolic Mandate
True Apostolic leadership will be commissioned with a fourfold mandate
like the one given to the apostle Paul. The Lord sent one of His
cherished friends, Ananias, to release a prophetic commission to
the now converted Saul of Tarsus. Ananias charged Paul with four
specific admonitions that overshadowed the remainder of his life
- ones that will characterize the Apostolic leaders of this day
as well. The scripture declares:
"A certain Ananias, a man who was devout by the standard of the
Law, and well spoken of by all the Jews who lived there, came to
me, and standing near said to me, 'Brother Saul, receive your sight!'
And at that very time I looked up at him. And he said, 'The God
of our fathers has appointed you to know His will and to see the
Righteous One and to hear an utterance from His mouth. For you will
be a witness for Him to all men of what you have seen and heard.'"
Paul was empowered with four distinctive privileges that exemplified
his Apostolic calling:
1. Appointed to know His will.
2. See the Righteous One.
3. Hear utterances from His lips.
4. Be a witness/testifier of what was seen and heard
The word "witness" is a judicial term signifying one who gives testimony
only to what they have personally seen and heard. Hearsay evidence
is not allowed in a court proceeding. Anointed eyes and ears are
essential in the accomplishment of this mandate, granting access
to the revelatory realm of Heaven where the will of God is apprehended
and testimony articulated from credible witnesses. These attributes
will begin to separate true governmental qualities from the Nicolaitan
At the end of 2003 while attending a large conference in Albany,
Oregon, my eyes were opened as I entered the sanctuary, and the
Lord allowed me to see a company of angels stationed in the back
of the Church. Each was dressed in white robes with gold sashes
or belts around them. When I asked who they were, the answer came
instantly. A voice stated, "They are angels that gather." I shared
that revelation with the pastor, but later wondered if there were
biblical references that signified gathering angels.
An examination of the Scriptures provided several instances in which
the Lord said that He is sending angels who gather. One such illustration
is Matthew 13:41 declaring:
"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."
There is a present work of the Spirit to initiate the process of
gathering the stumbling blocks and obstacles set against the high
purposes of God. The Nicolaitan spirit is one such example of the
effort of the adversary to inhibit the plan of Heaven. As we petition
heaven to release the "ministering spirits who gather" through the
authority delegated to us, we will begin to see these elements extracted
and a more abundant flow of grace present to initiate genuine governmental

"Revelation For Our Present
Condition and the Joseph Calling"
Fireside Chat With Bob Jones
by Paul Keith Davis
the last several years there have been numerous prophetic messages
and articles written concerning the calling of this generation in
the order of Joseph. There are multiple layers of application to
this prophetic model. Some involve the promise of provision during
times of famine, as well as a call to a position of leadership enjoyed
by Joseph after his elevation from the dungeon.
It is not our intent in this brief outline to address the various
applications involving the symbolism of Joseph. (For a review of
what Paul Keith Davis has written on the Joseph calling, you may
read it the Elijah List archives at
However, this week Bob Jones was given a vision directly related
to our present condition and its relationship to the Joseph calling.
The experience seemed to indicate a present focus on this arena
of our calling.
He was shown how many have been in the process of being perfected
through sufferings and difficulty. It is in the dungeon that our
character is forged, preparing us to carry the mantels of power
and authority delegated for this generation. Furthermore, he also
saw the importance of this election year and the direction our nation
takes following 2004. If the enemy has his way, an atmosphere could
be created in this nation that is less favorable for the advancement
of Kingdom purposes.
In his vision, the analogy of Potiphar's wife was underscored as
a present warning. The Scripture emphasizes:
"It came about after these events that his master's wife looked
with desire at Joseph, and she said, 'Lie with me.'" Genesis 39:7
Despite the seemingly oppressive conditions, the favor of God will
be recognized resting upon the "Josephs" even during their seasons
of refining. The spirit of this world, represented by Potiphar's
wife, will seek to entice them to a place of compromise. We must
be aware of this snare, and pray for the grace and mercy to overcome
this test. Once accomplished, the scorn of "Potiphar's wife" will
The false accusations of the enemy will attempt to demoralize and
imprison many with the calling of Joseph placed upon their lives.
Our strategy is to come before the Throne of Grace and request justice
and restoration. When the thief is captured he must restore sevenfold
all that has been stolen through corruption. This revelation will
launch many into their calling and destiny.

"Engaging the Revelatory Realm of Heaven"
by Paul Keith Davis
"I do not know what I may appear to the world,
but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the
seashore and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble
or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the Great Ocean of Truth
lay all undiscovered before me."
- Sir Isaac Newton
An ocean of divine truth is waiting to be discovered. An unprecedented
display of God's power and authority are about to take place in
the church. In this fascinating book, Paul Keith Davis reveals how
those anointed with the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation will see
an awesome demonstration of God's glory in the coming days.
"God is about to raise the bar on revelatory
ministry. Just as He did by making sure that none of Samuel's words
went unfulfilled, an acceleration in the prophetic community is
about to occur.
"Over the next several years, we will see a generation of "throne
room" prophets emerge. Their words will be more powerful than any
that have been spoken in recent years. Their accuracy will be deadly.
Today's prophetic community will be as small children who are like
kindergarteners compared to the college-level expressions that will
come. Their prophetic utterances will make the ears of the world
tingle, just as Samuel's did. These throne-room prophets will receive
their power through their intimacy with the majesty of God.
"In Engaging the Revelatory Realm of Heaven, Paul Keith Davis
sheds light about this new level of revelatory ministry that will
be built on intimacy with a majestic picture of God's throne. His
book describes the great call on those who long to engage with the
revelatory realm of Heaven. Their words, forged in the throne room
of God, will cause the ears of many to tingle. Tingling ears will
lead to pricked consciences, which will lead to penitent hearts.
And penitent hearts will lead to a renewed world.
"May God's face shine on you as you read Engaging the Revelatory
Realm of Heaven by my friend, Paul Keith Davis. I pray that
it will call you into a great life of intimacy, service, kindness,
and friendship with God." - John Paul Jackson, Streams

Shepherd's Rod 2004
by Bob Jones and Paul Keith Davis
|The term "Shepherd's
Rod" comes from Ezekiel 20:37 stating, "and I shall make you pass
under the rod, and I shall bring you into the bond of the covenant."
This Scripture symbolically portrays a shepherd extending his rod
as the sheep pass under his staff for evaluation. In this same way
we, as the Lord's sheep, pass under His staff during this season
as further described in Jeremiah 33:13 and Leviticus 27:32.
The purpose of this booklet is to simply outline the revelations
that were received on that date in order to Biblically convey the
revelation to the believer. It is not the intent of this outline
to completely cover all the truth associated with these revelations.
It would take a large book to adequately elaborate on and communicate
all of the Biblical truth realized through these revelations.
It is our prayer that the believer will study these revelations
during the course of this year to extract all the understanding
the Spirit of Truth will reveal. Much of the truth given in the
Shepherd's Rod is like seed that, once planted, requires time to
develop and mature. These revelations apply to the year that it
is given and the years that follow as each revelation provides greater
clarity and focus for the Lord's heart for this generation.

by Paul Keith Davis
"We are also pleased to announce that the
book the Lord commissioned us to write is now complete and available.
We sincerely pray the Lord will use it to open fresh dimensions
of His Presence and power to the hungry and desperate believer.
He promised to satisfy those who hunger and thirst for righteousness
and intimacy with Him. As important as winning the lost and healing
the sick clearly is, there is an even greater mandate being imparted
to this generation. That is to know Him as intimately and personally
as He may be known and live in that place of fellowship. How can
we fully be His representation on the earth if we are not intimately
acquainted with Him and His heart for our generation."
-Paul Keith Davis
"The contents of this book contain open revelations
from God Himself. It is much more than a glimpse into the secret
places, it is also a full view on how to become an 'overcomer.'
You will find within the pages of this book why Paul Keith walks
in 'Christ likeness'. I have been stirred by his life and now I
am stirred by his book." -Joseph Schuchert
