The End-Time Bride is a mature Bride, gifted in the prophetic and apostolic to co-labour with Christ in Heavenly places! It is important for us to understand that the spiritual gifts, call, and office upon God’s people is not restricted to church buildings and spiritual gatherings. The Lord is raising up an Army-Bride who runs in the fullness of Him and His Gifts wherever she is – at home, in her community, at work, in government. We are called to be His Bright Lights in the World – market-place ministers who shake and change the world around us for His Glory!
The Lord has taken the Body of Christ through a season of Fire and Water… even though she felt the scorching heat, she didn’t burn, though she was deeply submerged, she didn’t drown. He has upheld her with His Loving Arm, He has kept her feet from slipping, and her heart from failing. He has wiped her tears and comforted her in her midnight hours of despair and anguish, for this season was one of wounding and nakedness. The Lord has uncovered her, He has taken off her old garments. He is clothing her with His Perfect Love and the Fullness of Himself. For here she has found Him, here she has seen Him with eyes that behold Him as He really is. Forever Trustworthy, forever Loving, forever Good. No more is He the picture she painted of Him.
She has matured and is now ready to run at a pace that is Heavenly. The Lord is activating the Prophetic and Apostolic gifting in the Bride to build the nations. The Prophets will have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to this generation, interpreting and understanding the new ways of Heaven. They will be innovative, creative and entrepreneurial, and will impart vision and direction. They are the visionaries who will cast God’s Light and Direction in nations. The Apostles will have the ability to take that which is Spiritual and transfer it into the natural realm through practical solutions, tangible realities, and detailed strategies. They are the builders and enablers.
The Lord is calling the Bride into a new place. He is calling her into a governmental role where she will work alongside Him to bring Heaven down to Earth. The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof. He is building the nations for His Glory, and He is seeking out a pure remnant who will establish the nations as His inheritance, and bring them into a fruitful, prosperous place. He is activating the prophetic and apostolic gifting within the Bride to open Gateways of Blessing through innovative and creative models from Heaven. As Joseph was promoted to a governmental position through prophetic insight, and given the authority to rule alongside the Pharoah, implementing new ways of working that prospered Egypt and surrounding nations, so the Bride is promoted and given the authority to bring the nations into fruitfulness.

1Why do the nations conspire a
and the peoples plot in vain?
2The kings of the earth rise up
and the rulers band together
against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
3“Let us break their chains
and throw off their shackles.”
4The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.
5He rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
6“I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.”
7I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:
He said to me, “You are my son;
today I have become your father.
and I will make the nations your inheritance,
the ends of the earth your possession.
9You will break them with a rod of iron b ;
you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”
10Therefore, you kings, be wise;
be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11Serve the Lord with fear
and celebrate his rule with trembling.
12Kiss his son, or he will be angry
and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
