Brothers, Sisters, friends... Fellow Congressmen/Women and council members of the emerging Ekklesia
Following deliberations with Congressman Oscar who is also called to be a prophet. We feel the Lord may be highlighting to us all builders and building blocks of his priesthood and kingdom a template to run with from his works within the book of Ezra and Nehemiah.
I invite you all to read Ezra and Nehemiah and discern...
here are my own submissions..
Zerubabbel was clearly APOSTOLIC, he built an altar and led the people in Laying the foundation of house of God, (the Ekklesia in our case), satanic accusers (powers) influenced the authorities to hinder his work, these isreals national identity is based on her covenant with Jehovah of which the temple and its altar is the token. Thus if the enemy can stop the foundations being properly laid, he will have effectively stopped the establishment of the nation. This is where the apostolic and prophets contend...
the ministry of Haggai and Zechariah as PROPHETS assisted in the foundations of the Ekklesia. It was the right spiritual counter to the operation of powers that was set against them, this allowed the work to continue and complete, they brought the word of the Lord to war against arguments and broke the array of the demonic forces, so that the building can be completed
It was after then that the ministry of Ezra (prophetic/ apostolic/priestly) flourished to engage the nation (under the altar/authority of heaven) in moral purification and realignment to the laws.
Ezra was a reformer of culture, as he brought back repentance... He was fitted for this purpose, he was a master of the law! This could only make sense after the foundations and structure of the temple was build and the order of worship and covenant restored
Nehemiahs ministry was also apostolic as his building work brought stability, intergrity and definitions to the society by building the city walls
Their ministries were successive, it clearly reflects our times and provides insights into order of action to constitute and establish Gods holy nation in this time...
In summary I believe
We should trust God for a Cyrus movement that will release the apostolic to reestablish worship and covenant.
We should trust God for well aligned prophetic ops to strengthen the process of foundation laying to the constitution of the spiritual Ekklesia
We should trust God for the Ezra move (scribal prophets ) to realign the people morally and culturally
We should then trust God for a Nehemiah movement to build the walls and bring intergrity, stability and completion to the entity
Let the men of understanding discern, judge and comment
