“The Acceleration of the Lord’s Manifestation is Going to Expand for Your Station”


“The Acceleration of the Lord’s Manifestation is Going to Expand for Your Station”



As I was sitting on my couch tonight I went into the vision, and I saw myself with my hands raised standing on the ground. The ground rose upward under my feet and lifted me up as my hands were lifted up. I was lifted higher and higher, till eventually the upward movement stopped. I was still standing there with my hands raised, and I saw the cloud of the Shekinah Glory began to form above me. It grew and grew till it was larger than I could see its diameter anymore. Then the Shekinah cloud lowered downward till it was hovering just above me.

As I stood there, it then began to swirl down like a spiral and it began to enter my being. It slowly flowed within me and unfurled as it filled me, and it continued till the whole cloud that I saw above me, had entirely entered me. I could fee the cloud was expanding within me and it grew more intense as I stood there. Then it grew so big that I felt my inner being begin to break its internal boundaries and then I felt my being spread outwards, and out and out. Light flowed outwards from my being like water would flow, but the light was His Shekinah Glory. His Being was engaging with mine, and divinely exchanging with my being. I knew He was changing me within and without, so that He could flow out through my life in a fuller way.

The Lord is not coming as He has come in the past. He is coming in His fullness to indwell those who are fully surrendered to Him. He is coming to not only fill His human temples (our beings), but He is coming to express Himself in new and profound ways through them into the earth. His Shekinah Cloud is forming right now wherever His People are gathering unto Him. The Glory is on the move, and He is coming to those who are looking and waiting for Him. He is going to deeply permeate His People with a fuller measure of Himself. His Cloudy Being- is coming to deeply mature within them, so His love can flow through them, to also bring stability and healing to peoples, nations, and also the earth.

Scriptures:

Exodus 40:34 Then the cloud [the Shekinah, God’s visible presence] covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle!

Leviticus 9:23 Moses and Aaron went into the Tent of Meeting, and when they came out they blessed the people, and the glory of the Lord [the Shekinah cloud] appeared to all the people [as promised].

Numbers 16:42 When the congregation was gathered against Moses and Aaron, they looked at the Tent of Meeting, and behold, the cloud covered it and they saw the Lord’s glory.

Isaiah 4:5 And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection).

Mark 13:26 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great (kingly) power and glory (majesty and splendor).

Luke 21:27 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with great (transcendent and overwhelming) power and [all His kingly] glory (majesty and splendor).

2 Peter 1:16 For we were not following cleverly devised stories when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah), but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty (grandeur, authority of sovereign power). 17 For when He was invested with honor and glory from God the Father and a voice was borne to Him by the [splendid] Majestic Glory [in the bright cloud that overshadowed Him, saying], This is My beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased and delight, 18 We [actually] heard this voice borne out of heaven, for we were together with Him on the holy mountain.

Ephesians 3:16 May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality]. 17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, 18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; 19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]! 20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]— 21 To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).

Acts 5:14 More and more there were being added to the Lord those who believed [those who acknowledged Jesus as their Savior and devoted themselves to Him joined and gathered with them], crowds both of men and of women, 15 So that they [even] kept carrying out the sick into the streets and placing them on couches and sleeping pads, [in the hope] that as Peter passed by, at least his shadow might fall on some of them. 16 And the people gathered also from the towns and hamlets around Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those troubled with foul spirits, and they were all cured.

It’s time to stand and to receive His coming afresh. Yield yourselves fully unto Him, and allow Him to reveal Himself to you, and then through you. You are His Body………

“The Doubling Mandate in 2016/2017 is Accelerating Through the Door of Hanukkah”



“The Doubling Mandate in 2016/2017 is Accelerating Through the Door of Hanukkah”


The Lord has previously spoken to me of the year 2016/2017 is a Double-Double Year. For the past week the Lord has been speaking to me of the significance of Christmas and the 1st day of Hanukkah being on the same day this year of 2016. 

As I waited on the Lord to reveal more, in the vision, I saw a door opening in the realm of the Spirit. The door had steps within it, and I saw that there were 8 steps going upwards within the door to another place. The door opens in the realm of the Spirit on Christmas day and the 8 steps are the 8 days of Hanukkah this year. 

There is a fresh invitation being given to the Lords people to enter into new things on Christmas/Hanukkah, and to step upwards over the 8 days into a whole new realm/reality within Him. There is a great expansion of the revelation of Him that is available in this Season, that is going to release great light into the earth through those who will ascend and meet with Him. 

There is also a deep rededication occurring right now within all who will fully surrender to Him in the process of transformation. The Lord is not only laying a new foundation, and revealing new spiritual truths, He is establishing His Habitation wherever His People will allow Him to make them into His Image and Likeness in the earth. He will only dwell in that which looks like Him, and is fully given to Him. He is going to be the Head of His House. 

Some will enter in this winter and will ascend into the fullness of the expressions of the Lord that are awaiting them. Some will not yield to this invitation, so they will remain on the level that they currently are on. Some will harden, and turn back and will mock and persecute that which is about to emerge and greatly shine. Even some of Jesus own disciples turned and left the Lord and no longer followed Him when it was important to stay near to Him even when they did not understand the future. 

This is a Holy Season, and the Wise are going to step into a new “Double-Double” Door in this winter, and those that do, will also bear an accelerated and magnified manifestation of the Lord in their walks due to their obedience to seek Him and receive that which He has for them.

2 Kings 2: 8 And Elijah took his mantle and rolled it up and struck the waters, and they divided this way and that, so that the two of them went over on dry ground. 9 And when they had gone over, Elijah said to Elisha, Ask what I shall do for you before I am taken from you. And Elisha said, I pray you, let a double portion of your spirit be upon me. 10 He said, You have asked a hard thing. However, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you—but if not, it shall not be so. 11 As they still went on and talked, behold, a chariot of fire and horses of fire parted the two of them, and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. 12 And Elisha saw it and he cried, My father, my father! The chariot of Israel and its horsemen! And he saw him no more. And he took hold of his own clothes and tore them in two pieces. 13 He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan. 14 And he took the mantle that fell from Elijah and struck the waters and said, Where is the Lord, the God of Elijah? And when he had struck the waters, they parted this way and that, and Elisha went over.
** Now its not just seeing others ascend and go up so we can also receive, but we ourselves shall go up and shall receive/become the doubling in this Season…

I was also led to the following scripture on the Door of Hanukkah, and I researched it in several translations:

John 10:22-23Tree of Life Version (TLV)      Some Despise the Light and Harden
22 Then came Hanukkah;[a] it was winter in Jerusalem. 23 Yeshua was walking in the Temple around Solomon’s Colonnade.

John 10:22-23Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
22 After this the Feast of Dedication [of the reconsecration of the temple] was taking place at Jerusalem. It was winter,

John 10:22-23The Voice (VOICE)
22-23 It was winter and time for the Festival of Dedication.[a] While in Jerusalem, Jesus was walking through the temple in an area known as Solomon’s porch,

John 10:22-23Expanded Bible (EXB)      Jesus Is Rejected
22 The time came for the ·Feast of Dedication [Calso called Hanukkah or the Feast of Lights, recalling the rededication of the Temple in 164 bc] at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was walking in the Temple in Solomon’s ·Porch [Portico; Colonnade; Con the eastern side of the Temple area; at a later time Christians gathered there to worship; Acts 3:115:12].


Other scriptures on the theme of eight days and dedication to God, and/or transformation and a new manifestation:


2 Chronicles 7:8 At that time Solomon held the feast for seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly, from the entrance of Hamath to the Brook of Egypt. The eighth day they made a solemn assembly, for they had kept the dedication of the altar and the feast, each for seven days.

Luke 2:21 And at the end of eight days, when [the Baby] was to be circumcised, He was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb. 22 And when the time for their purification [the mother’s purification and the Baby’s dedication] came according to the Law of Moses, they brought Him up to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord—

Luke 9:28 Now about eight days after these teachings, Jesus took with Him Peter and John and James and went up on the mountain to pray. 29 And as He was praying, the appearance of His countenance became altered (different), and His raiment became dazzling white [[a]flashing with the brilliance of lightning].

John 20:25 Eight days later His disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, though they were behind closed doors, and stood among them and said, Peace to you! 27 Then He said to Thomas, Reach out your finger here, and see My hands; and put out your hand and place [it] in My side. Do not be faithless and incredulous, but [stop your unbelief and] believe!


Let us ascend up the Hill of the Lord, and meet with Him!

Let us become like Him, and shine with the knowledge of Him, emanating from within!

“The Councils of the Ancients are Convening – 11-02-16”


“The Councils of the Ancients are Convening – 11-02-16”




I am walking with the Lord up a mountain on a stone pathway that wound its way up the side of the mountain. The Lord and I are both wearing long robes and sandals. I notice as we climb that stone pathway gets narrower as we climb. The view from where we are is beautiful as I look down. I look back then and realize that the Lord continued walking so I hurry up to stay close to Him. I realized at this point that the path is getting so narrow that I am walking behind the Lord now. He does not turn around but just keeps walking ahead. I struggle to keep up the pace because I am focusing on the narrowing path. At one point the path ended and Jesus kept walking out on the air as if the path still existed. I stopped for a moment, and thought I had better do the same thing. So I just started walking on the air too as if the path still existed. It was still solid under my feet even though there was nothing there. It was exhilarating, but still unnerving too.

Suddenly we get to the top of the mountain and there is a long rectangle shaped table up there with people sitting around it and the Lord takes a seat at the head and I slip into a seat on the other side. I instantly knew it was the Council of the Ancients that we had came to. The Lord then nods to everyone there and he brings out a rolled up map or paper. He spreads it out on the table before us all and it contained schematics on it that looked similar to earthly blueprints. The drawings on the paper then raised up off the paper and hovered in the air like a hologram before us all. The words or symbols were alive and were vibrating and colors flashed from them and then the hologram spreads out and then it went inside all of us sitting there. It felt like static electricity moving around inside you. We are then each given a stone from the Lord. Mine was pink. I then felt to put it inside of my spirit.

I then looked down and there in front of us on the table were papers and pens. I take my pen and paper and I begin to write on sheets of paper. I was writing what looked to me like symbols or an ancient language. I couldn’t read what I was writing, but as I continued to write, I began crying. The more that I wrote, the harder I cried, till I couldn’t see anymore. The others at the table were also writing. I could hear them also crying as they wrote. Soon we were all crying so much that none of us could see. At one point, Jesus said, “enough.” Then we all stopped. We didn’t cry anymore, and we didn’t write anymore. We all looked down and what we wrote down was still foreign to us, but the symbols were now glowing. Evidently our tears had activated the symbols that we had drew. They were glowing and vibrating on the paper. Jesus then took each of our papers that we wrote on and He stood up.

He said, “The cries for wisdom have been heard. What has been laid up for your day in the heavenlies will now be released into the earth. The ancient path has been re-laid and the price of intercession has been paid. The Councils shall now be convened and the elders shall take their seats. I shall open the Wisdom of the Ages in your day, and My Sages shall write what I shall speak to them to convey. It is time to ask for My Ancient Ways in your day. It is time to also release Wisdom’s store even more. Blessed are they who inquire of Me, for they shall see what men have longed to see, for their faithful tears have come up before Me. I have opened My Books, and you shall indeed look, but you shall also pen the things that Heaven is about to begin among men. It is time for the harvest to be brought in. Let us all begin.” - Then the vision ended.

The Scriptures:

Ancient paths:

Jeremiah 18:15 VOICE
They have forgotten Me. Instead, My people offer incense to worthless gods, worshiping them as though they are real. They have lost their way, stumbling from the ancient path of blessing. Now they walk in the ruts of rebellion instead of taking the high road of obedience.

Jeremiah 6:16 VOICE
Eternal One (to the people): Stand at the crossing, and consider the ancient path, for it is good and it leads to Me. Walk on this path, and you will find rest for your souls. But they have said, “We will not walk upon this road.”

Wisdom’s Store:

Proverbs 2:7 He hides away sound and godly Wisdom and stores it for the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with Him); He is a shield to those who walk uprightly and in integrity,

Colossians 2:3 In Him all the treasures of [divine] wisdom (comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God) and [all the riches of spiritual] knowledge and enlightenment are stored up and lie hidden.

Wisdom of the Ages:

1 Corinthians 2:7 AMP But rather what we are setting forth is a wisdom of God once hidden [from the human understanding] and now revealed to us by God—[that wisdom] which God devised and decreed before the ages for our glorification [to lift us into the glory of His presence].

YLT: but we speak the hidden wisdom of God in a secret, that God foreordained before the ages to our glory,

Council of the Ancients:

Douay Rheims 1899    (The Gate Keepers)
1 Chronicles 26:1 And the divisions of the porters: of the Corites Meselemia, the son of Core, of the sons of Asaph. The sons of Meselemia: Zacharias the firstborn, Jadihel the second, Zabadias the third, Jathanael the fourth, Elam the fifth, Johanan the sixth, Elioenai the seventh. And the sons of Obededom, Semeias the firstborn, Jozabad the second, Joaha the third, Sachar the fourth, Nathanael the fifth, Ammiel the sixth, Issachar the seventh, Phollathi the eighth: for the Lord had blessed him. And to Semei his son were born sons, herds of their families: for they were men of great valour. The sons then of Semeias were Othni, and Raphael, and Obed, Elizabad, and his brethren most valiant men: and Eliu, and Samachias. All these of the sons of Obededom: they, and their sons, and their brethren most able men for service, sixty-two of Obededom. And the sons of Meselemia, and their brethren strong men, were eighteen.10 And of Hosa, that is, of the sons of Merari: Semri the chief, (for he had not a firstborn, and therefore his father made him chief.) 11 Helcias the second, Tabelias the third, Zacharias the fourth: all these the sons, and the brethren of Hosa, were thirteen. 12 Among these were the divisions of the porters, so that the chiefs of the wards, as well as their brethren, always ministered in the house of the Lord. 13 And they cast lots equally, both little and great, by their families for every one of the gates. 14 And the lot of the east fell to Selemias. But to his son Zacharias, a very wise and learned man, the north gate fell by lot. 15 And to Obededom and his sons that towards the south: in which part of the house was the council of the ancients. 16 To Sephim, and Hosa towards the west, by the gate which leadeth to the way of the ascent: ward against ward. 17 Now towards the east were six Levites: and towards the north four a day: and towards the south likewise four a day: and where the council was, two and two. 18 In the cells also of the porters toward the west four in the way: and two at every cell. 19 These are the divisions of the porters of the sons of Core, and of Merari.

“I am the Bread of Life that gives you Life”


“I am the Bread of Life that gives you Life”




(Transcript of the audio prophecy given at SOG on Friday, October 25th, 2016)

Patrick was speaking in his message about the Lord furnishing us within and without with the Life of the Spirit. We are being equipped with the Lord, so we can release Him into the earth.

He read from the context of John 6:48, 56, 57 in his message, and then the Spirit came very strongly in our midst and began to speak prophetically:

“Children I am furnishing within and without. I am clothing you within and without. I am forming Myself within you and without. For you shall not lack for anything, for I do not lack from My Father, and you shall not lack from Me. For My Spirit is life and it is life everlasting. My life is everlasting. It is permanent. It is eternal, and I am going to satisfy every desire in your spirit, every desire in your heart, every desire even in your body. Would I not answer that desire? Would I not give you the desires in your heart? Would I not give you the longings?”

“Just as the Father satisfied My desires and My longings, so I long to satisfy your desires and your longings. I desire to give you the things that you need to live your life. I desire to furnish you within and without. I desire to equip you within and without. I desire to mold you within and without. For none of My children lack. None of My children are empty. None of My children are barren. For as I am fruitful from My Father, you will be fruitful for Me, because I am the Fruit. I am the Root. I am the Shoot. All life proceeds from Me!”

“You are not to feel alone anymore. You are not to feel as an outcast in this hour. For I am not an outcast to My Father, and neither are you an outcast to Me. You belong to Me! Because you belong to Me, you have all that belongs to Me. I have a vast supply that does not run dry. I hear the sound of My Children that cry. Do you think that I would hear and then deny? Do you think that I would not answer those that cry, “why?” No!”

“I have an answer for you, and it’s found in Me. I want you to eat of Me. I want you to feast yourself upon Me. I want you to look into Me. I want you to cleave to Me. I want you to join with Me, for I have an eternal supply, and I will satisfy you within and without, for the pleasures of My Presence are forever. I have delights and I have pleasures for you. Just as I delighted myself in the pleasures of My Father, you are going to delight in the pleasures of Me.”

“For as I bear the image of My Father internally and externally, so shall you bear the image of us. For not only do you bear My name, but you bear My Father’s name. You bear the Spirit, and you bear the name of our eternal abode and that is within you as well. For would we write our name upon you, and then leave you? Would we write our name upon you, and then abandon you? Would we write our name upon you, and then say, “Well I don’t think we can really afford to help you?” No!”

“All that I am is yours! All that I am, and all that I possess, and all that I ever shall be, has already been given to you through My Word and by My Spirit. But many do not understand and they do not hear it. But Children, look and draw near it, and no longer fear it! Its time to gear it. It’s time to gird yourself with Me! It’s time to gird up the loins of your minds and begin to see and understand that it’s Me!”

“I am the Bread of Life, and those that eat of Me shall never hunger. I am the Water of Life, and those that drink of Me will never thirst. I am the embodiment of Life, and those that bear My image will never be naked. For as you cleave to Me, would I not cleave to you? And would I not walk with you? And would you not hear the sound of Me walking with you in the day and in the night?  Would you not smell My fragrance? Would you not feel My embrace? Would you not come and caress My face? Would you not know our 3-fold embrace?”

“It’s time to know. It’s time to go. Because the world is waiting to know. They are waiting to know Life’s flow.” 

John 6:48 I am the Bread of Life [that gives life—the Living Bread]. 49 Your forefathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and [yet] they died. 50 [But] this is the Bread that comes down from heaven, so that [any]one may eat of it and never die. 51 I [Myself] am this Living Bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he will live forever; and also the Bread that I shall give for the life of the world is My flesh (body). 52 Then the Jews angrily contended with one another, saying, How is He able to give us His flesh to eat? 53 And Jesus said to them, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, you cannot have any life in you unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood [unless you appropriate His life and the saving merit of His blood]. 54 He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood has (possesses now) eternal life, and I will raise him up [from the dead] on the last day. 55 For My flesh is true and genuine food, and My blood is true and genuine drink. 56 He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood dwells continually in Me, and I [in like manner dwell continually] in him. 57 Just as the living Father sent Me and I live by (through, because of) the Father, even so whoever continues to feed on Me [whoever takes Me for his food and is nourished by Me] shall [in his turn] live through and because of Me. 58 This is the Bread that came down from heaven. It is not like the manna which our forefathers ate, and yet died; he who takes this Bread for his food shall live forever.

The Governing Angels and the Emerging Government of God in our Midst

Governing angels come to establish that which has been written concerning you. We are each called to be those who rule with Christ while seated in the heavens, and functioning in the earth. The Lord has always had a functioning Government in the earth that has worked through people in every generation.
In this generation, the Glory is now entering and manifesting in the earth, so the need for our maturity and wisdom has greatly increased. The Governing angels bring the heavenly assistance that we need to fully grow up and to help us transition and stand in our various places and in our governmental capacities so we are not just effective, but so we can fulfill all that is written upon our scrolls.

Lets look at a prophetic picture of this process:

Zechariah was shown the pattern for the governmental preparation for the Habitation of God’s Glory.

Zechariah 3:Then [the guiding angel] showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at Joshua’s right hand to be his adversary and to accuse him. And the Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, O Satan! Even the Lord, Who [now and habitually] chooses Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this [returned captive Joshua] a brand plucked out of the fire? Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments and was standing before the Angel [of the Lord]. And He spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And He said to [Joshua], Behold, I have caused your iniquity to pass from you, and I will clothe you with rich apparel. And I [Zechariah] said, Let them put a clean turban on his head. So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him with [rich] garments. And the Angel of the Lord stood by. And the Angel of the Lord [solemnly and earnestly] protested and affirmed to Joshua, saying, Thus says the Lord of hosts: If you will walk in My ways and keep My charge, then also you shall rule My house and have charge of My courts, and I will give you access [to My presence] and places to walk among these who stand here. Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you and your colleagues who [usually] sit before you—for they are men who are a sign or omen [types of what is to come]—for behold, I will bring forth My servant the Branch. For behold, upon the stone which I have set before Joshua, upon that one stone are seven eyes or facets [the all-embracing providence of God and the sevenfold radiations of the Spirit of God]. Behold, I will carve upon it its inscription, says the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity and guilt of this land in a single day.

Governmental Structures instituted by God:

Romans 13:1 Let every person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment. Therefore he who resists and sets himself up against the authorities resists what God has appointed and arranged [in divine order]. And those who resist will bring down judgment upon themselves [receiving the penalty due them]. For civil authorities are not a terror to [people of] good conduct, but to [those of] bad behavior. Would you have no dread of him who is in authority? Then do what is right and you will receive his approval and commendation. For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, [you should dread him and] be afraid, for he does not bear and wear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant to execute His wrath (punishment, vengeance) on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God’s wrath and escape punishment, but also as a matter of principle and for the sake of conscience. For this same reason you pay taxes, for [the civil authorities] are official servants under God, devoting themselves to attending to this very service. Render to all men their dues. [Pay] taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, and honor to whom honor is due.

Daniel, Joseph, and many others served righteously and effectively in worldly governments.

Daniel 6:1 It pleased [King] Darius [successor to Belshazzar] to set over the kingdom 120 satraps who should be [in charge] throughout all the kingdom, And over them three presidents—of whom Daniel was one—that these satraps might give account to them and that the king should have no loss or damage. Then this Daniel was distinguished above the presidents and the satraps because an excellent spirit was in him, and the king thought to set him over the whole realm. Then the presidents and satraps sought to find occasion [to bring accusation] against Daniel concerning the kingdom, but they could find no occasion or fault, for he was faithful, nor was there any error or fault found in him.

Genesis 41:37 And the plan seemed good in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of all his servants. 38 And Pharaoh said to his servants, Can we find this man’s equal, a man in whom is the spirit of God? 39 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Forasmuch as [your] God has shown you all this, there is nobody as intelligent and discreet and understanding and wise as you are. 40 You shall have charge over my house, and all my people shall be governed according to your word [with reverence, submission, and obedience]. Only in matters of the throne will I be greater than you are. 41 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt. 42 And Pharaoh took off his [signet] ring from his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand, and arrayed him in [official] vestments of fine linen and put a gold chain about his neck; 43 He made him to ride in the second chariot which he had, and [officials] cried before him, Bow the knee! And he set him over all the land of Egypt. 44 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without you shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.

The Governmental Mandate of Wisdom:
Does not skillful and godly Wisdom cry out, and understanding raise her voice [in contrast to the loose woman]? On the top of the heights beside the way, where the paths meet, stands Wisdom [skillful and godly]; At the gates at the entrance of the town, at the coming in at the doors, she cries out: To you, O men, I call, and my voice is directed to the sons of men. O you simple and thoughtless ones, understand prudence; you [self-confident] fools, be of an understanding heart. Hear, for I will speak excellent and princely things; and the opening of my lips shall be for right things. For my mouth shall utter truth, and wrongdoing is detestable and loathsome to my lips. All the words of my mouth are righteous (upright and in right standing with God); there is nothing contrary to truth or crooked in them. They are all plain to him who understands [and opens his heart], and right to those who find knowledge [and live by it]. 10 Receive my instruction in preference to [striving for] silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold, 11 For skillful and godly Wisdom is better than rubies or pearls, and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. 12 I, Wisdom [from God], make prudence my dwelling, and I find out knowledge and discretion. 13 The reverent fear and worshipful awe of the Lord [includes] the hatred of evil; pride, arrogance, the evil way, and perverted and twisted speech I hate. 14 I have counsel and sound knowledge, I have understanding, I have might and power. 15 By me kings reign and rulers decree justice. 16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges and governors of the earth. 17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me early and diligently shall find me. 18 Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and righteousness (uprightness in every area and relation, and right standing with God). 19 My fruit is better than gold, yes, than refined gold, and my increase than choice silver. 20 I [Wisdom] walk in the way of righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation), in the midst of the paths of justice, 21 That I may cause those who love me to inherit [true] riches and that I may fill their treasuries. 30 Then I [Wisdom] was beside Him as a master and director of the work; and I was daily His delight, rejoicing before Him always, 31 Rejoicing in His inhabited earth and delighting in the sons of men. 32 Now therefore listen to me, O you sons; for blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are those who keep my ways. 33 Hear instruction and be wise, and do not refuse or neglect it. 34 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. 35 For whoever finds me [Wisdom] finds life and draws forth and obtains favor from the Lord. 36 But he who misses me or sins against me wrongs and injures himself; all who hate me love and court death.

Psalms 85- The mandate for generational restoration:

The petition to heaven for generational change:

Psalms 85:1 Lord, You have [at last] been favorable and have dealt graciously with Your land [of Canaan]; You have brought back [from Babylon] the captives of Jacob. You have forgiven and taken away the iniquity of Your people, You have covered all their sin. Selah [pause, and calmly realize what that means]! You have withdrawn all Your wrath and indignation, You have turned away from the blazing anger [which You had let loose]. Restore us, O God of our salvation, and cause Your anger toward us to cease [forever]. Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger [and disfavor] and spread it out to all generations? Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You? Show us Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, and grant us Your salvation.

Listening to Wisdom’s instructions:

I will listen [with expectancy] to what God the Lord will say, for He will speak peace to His people, to His saints (those who are in right standing with Him)—but let them not turn again to [self-confident] folly. Surely His salvation is near to those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him, [and is ready to be appropriated] that [the manifest presence of God, His] glory may tabernacle and abide in our land.

The results of the mutual flow of the Government of God in heaven and in the earth.

10 Mercy and loving-kindness and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. 11 Truth shall spring up from the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven. 12 Yes, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. 13 Righteousness shall go before Him and shall make His footsteps a way in which to walk.
