God had a plan before the earth was formed to restore humanity, this planet, in fact all of creation to the original state they were created for. God's leaders must be well informed themselves concerning this plan to share it with others. There are living stones across this planet craving to know more of God, wanting to find their place in the body, who when gathered will form God's sukkah, His temple, so He can tabernacle with man.
I Peter 2:5 says:
5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
6 For unto us a Child is born (Jesus), unto us a Son is given; and the government (those chosen to be this part of His body) will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David (Jesus is of David's tribe, Judah, and the born again His brethren) and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
Hebrews 10:16 explains:
16 "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,"
18 For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest,
22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels,
23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven (those recorded in the Book of Life), to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect (through the blood of the Lamb),
2 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established on the top of the mountains (over all kingdoms), and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it.
3 Many people shall come and say, " Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
John saw this supernatural city, the Bride as recorded in Revelation 21:1-2.
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea (sea is symbolic of wicked humanity).
2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
The city is not in heaven as false doctrine
teaches either, as verses 23-24 show.
23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.
24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.
As stated before, God's true leadership is chosen by Him
, shaped and molded to guide, protect
and unite His people through His Spirit
. It's Christ in us the hope of glory, so leaders that are hired by man
cannot be a part of the stout-hearted volunteers
that the Lord will function through to pioneer the new earth, establish His laws and His Kingdom
. False doctrines and man's traditions
will block the winds of change in the lives of a congregation held captive by leaders ensnared by Babylon, the city of the adversary
. Her religious systems
, with their salaries, pensions, and supplied resources controls the shepherds. Church has become a huge money-making business, but the braided whip is swinging once again
. Christ through His prepared vessels is prophesying the destruction
of storehouses that abuse His funds and abort His plans for restoration. He is shining a light exposing shepherds that are building their own kingdom
, bringing the scripture in Revelation 18:10-11 and 14 to fruition.
Revelation 18:10-11, 14
10 standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city (the opposite of God's city, the adversary's bride)! For in one hour your judgment has come.'
11 "And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore:
14 The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you (her intellect from the Tree of Good and Evil fails her), and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all (her wealth fails her).
Ephesians 4:8, 11-13
8 Therefore He says: "When He (Jesus) ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men."
11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
Now here is what God chooses them for:
12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
52 "Woe to you lawyers (the religious leaders of that day)! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered."
