"Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully." (Psalm 24:3-4)
We have not only crossed the threshold into a new year, but into a new era. This is an entirely new period of time where we are moving from the Church age to the Kingdom age. We have entered the season of the open door, where discernment will be required.
We need to discern which door we are to go through as we're presented with many options. How we close the door of our previous season will partially determine how we go through the new door presented before us.
Here are five key areas we've entered into in the new era of the open door in 2024:
Five Key Prophetic Points
First of all, many of us have declared we are entering into an authentic Psalm 24 revival. I am here to say that this revival of purity has already begun with the cleansing of the Father's house. Double-standard living and corruption are being exposed, which is a sign of a new beginning!
Second, it is time for the modern-day Mordecais to arise, preparing the corporate Esthers for their divine history-making appointments before the King. We are entering a crisis moment when the Gentile Church will carry the Jewish people upon its shoulders. (Photo via Unsplash)
Third, we're at a strategic point where the culture of fear will collide with the authentic culture of faith. This is the frontline battle of our days.
Fourth, it is the hour when the history-making intercessors will arise with the power and grace of crisis intervention, like Rees Howells out of Wales in World War II. Yes, warrior intercessors must come forth in Jesus' name!
Each of these prophetic points are like waves of the sea overlapping with one another, where one begins and the other ends; there is no clear demarcation.
But, this brings me to my fifth point... I have multiple words that I could bring to you in closing, but I felt that I should keep my last statement simple in a period of time when chaos seems to be the norm. Here are my thoughts:
The level at which you rest is the level at which you will effectively wage spiritual warfare. Your altitude will determine your attitude, which in turn will impact your peaceful presence. (Photo via Unsplash)
Three words have rumbled around on the inside of me: 1) perception, 2) projection, and 3) presence. Greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world! The inner perception of who Christ is in us will project from us the presence of the Almighty One, and we will rest in this posture and position.
Ultimately, to find rest is to come to Him! Matthew 11:28-30 states, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and you learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."
This is my fifth and final point: Rest in Him!
A Prayer for His Purposes and His Presence
Father God, I believe that we are crossing the threshold into a new era through new doors. I desire to cultivate a heart for Your brilliant presence. Consume me with Your Holy Spirit. Take control of my life and make me into all that You desire me to be in Christ Jesus. Fill me with Your Spirit's presence and power once again. I choose by God's grace to be a doorkeeper of Your presence and to be a watchman on the walls for my family, neighborhood, city, and nation. I want to see the prophetic purposes of God come to pass in my generation for Jesus Christ's sake. Amen and amen!
May God bless each one of you!
