One of the things I've noticed in the last while is that God has been raising up a new breed. They have giftings and have gone through great storms. Daniel is one who has risen above his storms and is becoming mighty in the Lord. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

This season has been one of the hardest seasons we have faced as the Body of Christ. The Lord is not only giving everyone new blueprints all at once, but He is calling all of us to die to our flesh. The Lord spoke to me and said, "For all of those who walk all the way through the fire in this season, those will be the ones who carry My glory." The Lord made it clear that the ones who carry the glory must die to themselves and go all the way through to the end.
For the Glory of God
In John 11:3-4, Lazarus, a friend of Jesus, is sick. "Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, 'Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.' When Jesus heard that, He said, 'This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.'" We know the story. Jesus left Lazarus to die on purpose. He even said in John 11:4 that this was "for the glory of God." In this season we have all faced much testing. We have all been through the fire and are still in it. Some have faced so much opposition and testing that they have nearly fainted.
As we continue to walk in this season, so many things are being dealt with. The places in our hearts left void of the character of Jesus are being dealt with. Further on in John 11, we see that Jesus arrives and Lazarus has been dead for four days. John 11:40, "Jesus said to her, 'Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?'"
Have you felt like you are dying this season? Did you cry out to the Lord on what seemed to be your deathbed and feel abandoned? Did you loose hope? Did you wonder where was Jesus your lover and your friend? Brothers and sisters, if this is you, then take heart and know this, "For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us" (Romans 8:18).
"Loose Him and Let Him Go"
Jesus called, "Lazarus, come forth!" Then Lazarus came out with grave clothes and his face was wrapped with a cloth. He was then loosed and was sent forth carrying the glory of God (John 11:43-45).
The mandate for this season is death. Yes, it is to truly to die to ourselves and to our flesh so that we may rise up and carry the glory of God! If you are willing to do this, you will hear the words, "Loose him, and let him go." Don't give up friends, don't quit now. The pain has been great and relief is long overdue. It has been hard and you have faced a fierce season, but you will make it and you will overcome. You will soon hear those words from our Lord Jesus, "Loose him and let him go!"
New Assignments and Alignments Are Being Fulfilled
The Lord has specifically released blue prints to the entire Body all at once in this season. This is purposed to cause mass confusion in the camp of the enemy. These are the new alignments and the new assignments that He has spoken of. Many people are being given new coverings, moving into new ministries, new jobs, and even moving to new states. This is the strategy of the Lord to release mass chaos and confusion into the enemy's camp.
Since the Body has been going through much fire and many have even felt faint from this fierce season of testing, many are questioning their paths. One of the hardest parts of new seasons and new alignments, within the assignments, is trusting that people are actually following the Lord. Many have been moved around and as a result, it's caused much pain for these people. Some are being accused of disobedience. However, this is also part of the blueprints from Heaven. Some think that this is betrayal and rejection, but it's the Lord positioning people strategically.
This is a very exciting time for the Body of Christ and we must learn to let people go and love them during these transitions. The hardest part about any transition is saying goodbye to the ones we love. It's so hard to let them go and sometimes it feels like betrayal. We must carry on knowing that these unusual strategies are from the Lord and that we are all on the same team.
John 11:25-26, "Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?"
This is the cost this season. This is the price we are being asked to pay. This is how to go from death to life, dying to ourselves, and carrying the glory of God! Be encouraged, "For all of those who walk all the way through the fire in this season, those will be the ones who carry My glory." Don't give up, don't quit now. You will soon hear the words, "Loose him and let him go!" You are becoming God's glory carriers. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
