A Word Fitly Spoken

How to Usher in a Massive Awakening and Divinely Ordained Destinies
In this time of great unrest, uncertainty, and chaos in the earth, the Lord is raising up a great company of sons and daughters who exude His peace and reflect His great light, just as He said: "Let there be light!" The mandate given to this company is to: "Prepare the way of the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God" (Isaiah 40:3).
Their job description is to see that "every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill brought low; the crooked places shall be made straight and the rough places smooth" (Isaiah 40:4). As they accomplish this tremendous task, they will receive the glorious reward: "The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the LORD has spoken" (Isaiah 40:5).
As the Lord prepares to usher in a massive awakening and to launch a vast company of saints into their divinely ordained destinies – some into the marketplace, some into the harvest fields, and some to minister to His House, the enemies of our Lord are attempting to derail this move by launching a campaign of confusion, to cause division in the ranks, and miscommunication and offense in relationships. This has always been satan's greatest tactic from ancient times, and many can testify, through experience, of the suffering it causes.
However, recently, in this year of great expectation of the fulfillment of God's promises, the enemy is attempting to sabotage divinely ordained destinies from coming forth. As I have been in prayer over this, the Lord revealed that the cause of much of the offense lies in a lack of adhering to the PROTOCOLS OF THE KINGDOM coupled with unloving attitudes.
Protocols of the Kingdom govern rules of conduct and accepted behavior clearly laid out in the Word of God. According to Wikipedia's definition,protocol is: a rule which describes how an activity should be performed... [They] are often unwritten guidelines. Protocols specify the proper and generally accepted behavior in matters of state and diplomacy, such as showing appropriate respect to a head of state, ranking diplomats in chronological order of their accreditation at court, and so on. In any great kingdom or government, and most certainly in the Kingdom of God, there is order and protocol to be observed in all relationships, but most especially in observance with the leadership or elders appointed by God. (Photo via Faith Marie Baczko)
Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other. 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
Some Guidelines in Relating to Leadership
– Show honor to your leaders through love, kindness, and listening to their advice and counsel with respect.
– Love them in prayer, intercession, and kindness, for "he who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward..." (Matthew 10:41).
– Refrain from: criticism, judgment, gossip, and slander of leaders God has appointed.
– Be sensitive and give leaders their space as they are dealing with many people on many fronts and it can be overwhelming and tiring.
– Try not to flood leaders with your revelations, especially leaders that you do not have a relationship with. Trust God for your timing. Jesus went into the grave carrying the greatest revelation of all history – that He was the Son of God and very God! If your revelation is from God, it cannot die; God will bring it forth in its time with far greater anointing and impact when you wait for His timing.
– Do not be presumptuous in word or action; Luke 14:7-11 is a great Scripture to meditate on: "When he noticed how the guests picked the places of honor at the table, he told them this parable: "When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for a person more distinguished than you may have been invited. If so, the host who invited both of you will come and say to you, 'Give this person your seat.' Then, humiliated, you will have to take the least important place. But when you are invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, 'Friend, move up to a better place.' Then you will be honored in the presence of all the other guests. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted."
– Resist the temptation or desire to correct leaders on their messages or their doctrine, especially if you are not in relationship with them. If you feel that a leader is in error, follow proper protocol and take it to the leader that you are accountable to – or better still, take it to God in prayer! Ultimately, leaders are set in their position by God and they must answer to Him. He is most capable of correcting His servants if it is needed. In seeking Him first, God may just reveal a greater revelation of truth that you did not see. (Photo via Freeimages)
– God sets leaders in within boundary lines established by Him. Within these regions they sit at the gates and are mandated with the authority to govern. There are spheres of authority in the Kingdom of God and protocol related to those spheres.

"Handle with Care"
I personally find it very disheartening when I see those in the Body criticize, judge, and mock openly on the Internet or in print. The Bible gives the protocol for dealing with all situations that may arise. When there are concerns, we should first go in private; then with others; and the last resort is in public, and in that case it is done with dignity, and integrity – never to mock or put shame on anyone, but to always handle God's servants in an honoring way.
If it is of a prophetic concern or related to accuracy, I believe it grieves the heart of God when we publicly shame the sons and daughters that He loves, who are sincerely trying to be obedient to Him. As we publicly criticize and attack each other, the world looks on and mocks our hypocrisy and lack of love.
If we were to encourage and build-up one another publicly, and correct in love and honor privately, so much confusion, pain, offense, and shame in the Body of Christ would be eliminated. I have found when we speak the truth in love, we will have a far more receptive audience and build long-lasting relationships!
I have learned the hard way that it is better to wait and take time to think things through prayerfully and ask for counsel before I go rushing in with correction or with my opinions. We so easily forget that Jesus hung on a Cross for the very people we are so angry and offended with – that He loves them passionately with everlasting love – and yet we can handle them so carelessly.
When God first released me in the area of counseling, I had a very vivid dream. I was walking on a narrow path up a very high hill. At the top of the hill was a great mansion, like a castle. I was dressed like a servant, on my way to work in the mansion of a great king. The king took me to a very special room that contained his most priceless treasures! He handed me a cloth and instructed me to clean these valuables and then left. As I turned to begin my work, I saw a large sign on the wall that read "HANDLE WITH CARE." I knew the dream was a warning from God to handle His children, the treasures of His heart, with great care! (Photo via Pixabay)
God Does Not Take Sides; He is His Own Side
It is important to remember that God doesn't takes sides; He is His own side – one that is always founded on a higher way. When Joshua asked the Captain of the Hosts whose side He was on, theirs or their enemies, He answered, "Neither" – for God so loved THE WORLD! In disputes, it is always important to ascend to the place of God's heart to get His perspective. To be an ambassador representing the Kingdom, it is important to always maintain an objective position in all circumstances, and not be hooked in through emotion. When we are caught in the situation emotionally, we become a part of the problem, and then we may not be equipped to bring God's solution.
There was a time early in my Christian walk where I was busy criticizing God's leaders and God's Church, even though I knew the Scripture about not touching God's anointed. Well, the Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, so the Lord took me to an account in Ezekiel 8 and 9 that really shook me up! God then spoke to my heart and said, "I did not call you to criticize but to unite with My heart to intercede and pray accordingly."
This incident caused me to be so grateful for the Cross and the Blood of Jesus that protects us! God does want His children to grow up into the fullness of the stature of Christ, and the Holy Spirit patiently works with us that we may become the fragrance of Christ wherever we are.
God has put a deep travail in my heart rising inside me over these issues. We are all so hungry for more of God and on the edge of the move we have been longing for. I believe God not only wants us to pursue unity, He wants us in union to drive out the enemy from the midst of us, that His shalom can rest heavily upon us and His glory be evident to all!
If we choose to study and learn of the fragrant and beautiful ways of Christ, and the protocols of His Kingdom, as we move out into the harvest fields of the world, the plans of the enemy to divide us will be greatly hinderedWhen we move as a unified force, the commanded blessing of the Father will be upon us and the world will know that we are sons of God by our love for each other and for them. (Photo via Wikimedia)
By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:38
Revival and awakening begin within us. The Azusa Street Revival began when some had the courage to pray, "Lord, BEND me!" Repentance makes the way for the Spirit to move.
Prayer for Personal Revival
On my journey, God brought these issues before me and inspired me to write the below repentance prayer for personal revival.
I dwell in the high and holy place, with Him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:15
O Father, Sovereign Lord of Heaven and earth, please forgive me for breaking Your first and second commandment, for not loving You with all my heart. Forgive me for putting people and other things as priorities in my life before You. Forgive me, Lord, for turning my eyes away from beholding Your beauty. Forgive me for wasting precious time on the things of this world.
O LORD, I have heard Your speech and was afraid; O LORD, revive your work in the midst of the years! Habakkuk 3:2
Forgive me, LORD, for when I have not hearkened to the word of Your prophets and apostles and not submitted to the leaders You have given to guide and direct me. Forgive me when I have made the choice to criticize and dishonor Your chosen servants with my words and grieved the Holy Spirit. Lord forgive me when I have, through criticism, slander, judgment, and murmuring, stepped out from under the protection of fathers and mothers whom You have set in place over me. Forgive me, Father!
Then we will not turn away from You; revive us, and we will call on Your name. Restore us, LORD God Almighty; make Your face shine upon us, that we may be saved. Psalm 80:19
Father, forgive me when I have not preferred others as Your Word commands and not honored the gift in others. Father, forgive me where I have been guilty of pride, striving, competition, and a lack of Your great love and compassion. Forgive me for holding on to offense and unforgiveness; forgive me, LORD, when I have not chosen Your higher way of love and servanthood.
Consider how I love Your precepts; revive me, O LORD, according to Your lovingkindness. Psalm 119:159
Forgive me, LORD, when I have misrepresented You and not reflected Your goodness, Your compassion and great mercy for others, the lost and the poor. Forgive me for any prejudice I have harbored toward precious people of other cultures or social standing, created in Your image, and in pride have treated anyone as less than myself.
Great are Your tender mercies, O LORD; revive me according to Your judgments. Psalm 119:156
O LORD, forgive me when my heart has been proud and lofty and I have chosen reason and logic over Your Word. Forgive me for compromising and attempting to live out Your Life on my terms; for I am owned by You, bought by Your Blood. Forgive me, LORD, when I have been selective in my obedience and disregarded Your commands and precepts as not relevant or agreeable.
Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness; O LORD, revive me according to Your justice. Psalm 119:149 
Father, Your Word declares that righteousness and justice are the foundations of Your throne; forgive me, LORD, when I have not walked righteously. Forgive me when I have chosen to compromise on Your Word and Your Way, and have not chosen to obey the clear directions in Your Word.
Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, and revive me in Your way. Psalm 119:37
Forgive me for grieving Your precious Holy Spirit when I have not chosen Your way and Your Words of life. You long for me to share Your heart and Your desires; forgive me for having chosen my ways above Yours.
Behold, I long for Your precepts; revive me in Your righteousness. Psalm 119:40
Forgive me Lord for displeasing You with grumbling, murmuring and complaining, and for having a despairing heart of unbelief and doubt. Forgive me for not trusting Your faithfulness and goodness, for You are Good and Your mercy endures forever. O Father, forgive my unbelief and help me to believe once again.
My soul clings to the dust; revive me according to Your word. Psalm 119:25 
Father, please forgive me for undermining any revelation You have prepared and birthed through chosen vessels to enhance the building of Your House, to enforce Your coming Kingdom, and to display Your great power on earth. Forgive me for words I have spoken against other churches and ministries, and the work You have birthed through them.
Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You? Psalm 85:6
Precious LORD, I declare my love for You today. I choose to pick up my cross and follow You. I choose obedience and I choose the way of love. I honor You as my LORD and confess that You are the Sovereign LORD of all creation! I praise Your wonderful name and lift it high above every name that is named on earth or in Heaven. You alone are God, and You alone are worthy of praise and honor. You are great and greatly to be praised. All honor, majesty, dominion, power, and glory belongs to You, O God!
I declare to the Heavens, to principalities and powers, that You are my God, that You are good and Your great mercy endures forever! Be lifted up, you gates, that the KING OF GLORY may come!
