As we began this engagement with Heaven, Jesus could be seen stepping on large land masses. We realized he was stepping on states. He wanted to teach us about ordered steps which he described as an agreement.
Even though you may have been commissioning your angels to order your steps you have to also be in agreement with the work they do in the process.
If you are in agreement with the ordered steps of the Lord, you can conquer entire states.
In the Old Testament, when Kings would conquer an area, they would then set about to govern that area. The conquered area came under the governance of the king who conquered it.
If you formulate the conquering, it becomes a governing.
To formulate means to methodically create or devise a strategy or a proposal to express an idea in a concise or systematic way. Those are two of the definitions.
If we express the idea of conquering in a systematic way through ordered steps, we will be able to govern.
How can two walk together except they agree. (Amos 3:3)
We should never formulate any point or step anywhere on any territory without consulting Jesus first. It must be done via an active agreement because it's agreement with Jesus.
In all our ways, acknowledge him and he will direct our paths. (Proverbs 3:6)
If we acknowledge Jesus in a concise and systematic way, He will direct our paths. When He directs our paths, then we govern.
We conquer, and then we govern.
Jesus has engineered it to be this way.
When something has been engineered, it has been skillfully and deliberately arranged rather than arising naturally or spontaneously. Jesus skillfully and deliberately arranges the agreement.
We must have ordered steps that then expresses in a concise and systematic way how we conquer, then govern.
The steps of the righteous are ordered by the Lord. (Psalm 37:23)
Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. (Joshua 1:3)
Jesus wants to walk on every state in agreement with us.
As we follow His ordered steps, our steps are ordered as well. It can't be anything we have conquered. That's the ease in it. We have been busy trying to conquer things ourselves, but the ease is, He has ordered the steps, but we have to be in agreement with it.
This is where excellence steps in. This is where the Bond of Excellence is important – stepping into the Spirit of Excellence because, this is about steps! Stepping into the Spirit of
Excellence and now walking in lock step with Jesus to conquer our state or province.
We are not the initiator – He is. We just have to be in agreement with the direction He is taking or be sensitive to the direction – discerning the direction.
This is a whole lot easier than people who want to do it through warfare – the swinging of the swords and all those things because they decide to go take a territory or take the city and they aren't the ones to do it, or they aren't prepared to do it, or they aren't strong enough to do it. Maybe there are not enough of them to maintain it.
Every commandment which I command you today you must be careful to observe, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land of which the LORD swore to your fathers.
They think they can do warfare against principalities the old paradigm way and you end with so much backlash that now there’s not a lot of people out there standing in their place. Some are even out of church, and it knocks some of them out of doing intercession work because of trying to do things a much harder way. But seeing this, Jesus is not straining to step on those states and his foot covers every state completely.
Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. (Revelation 19:11)
We must do the necessary court work to ensure the victory on the battlefield. Many have gone to battle, never having inquired of the Lord for the necessary verdict from the Courts of Heaven. Jesus understands the process – court work, then battlefield work. We have found that if we do the proper court work, then the warfare is no longer necessary.
How beautiful are the feet of them that bring good news. (Isaiah 52:7)
The Father has already strategized and ordered our steps FOR us, so if we are in agreement with Him, rather than saying, “I don't want to move over there, I don't want to do this, I don't want to do that,” - if we are walking in rebellion, or whatever. He is saying, “Be yielded to me, let me bring you into doing what steps I have ordered because Heaven is waiting on us. Heaven is waiting!”
Look at the people that are now being impacted. He is ordering our steps and all we have to do is agree with it and walk in it and then see what He does with the beautiful theme of the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and the life changing messages and revelation that he's given that we don't have to do things a hard way.
If He has ordered our steps and we come into agreement with it, He is actually taking the steps, not us!
We have begun saying, “Glory stand up, Glory stand up, glory stand up!” Then we begin to move from glory standing up to stepping into the glory. Stepping into the glory. From there, we begin to see a blueprint and we put our hand in the blueprint (which are the orders – the directives, and the plans for our life). When we step into the blueprint, we become engulfed in the blueprint. We become the blueprint!
It is in becoming one with the blueprint of the Father for our lives, that we find our steps ordered and we then step into the mode of conqueror, then governing son. It’s an exciting journey! Let’s not miss a single step.
