Word by Glenn Jackson


"The Kingdom"
- is the sphere of spiritual reality in which the Church [both individually and corporately] is to "live move and have their being" [in Christ]. It is the place wherein Jesus is truly recognized [both in one's words and actions] as King of kings and Lord of lords [Revelation 19:11-16]- by those who truly love Him. It is a place "far above" the "world" [Ephesians 2:6] - and the fear, pride, rebellion, division, strife, jealousy and darkness [confusion] therein.

Words of Prophecy

*       When one "allows" themselves to become "self-absorbed" [self-focused] they immediately lose sight of My Word - and the "needs" of all those around them.

*       The root "ground" that allows a "spirit of legalism" to establish a stronghold in ones life and ministry is the fear of man [seeking after the approval of men - self-glory], and their "assignment" is to ensnare their captive in a "web" of perpetual self-exaltation [self-effort and self-agenda].

*       Many, in this last hour, desire only to hear the words that proceed forth from "flesh and blood" rather than the absolute truths of My Word. Thus, they fix their eyes upon those whom "they" deem to be of Me, and hold fast to the words that proceed forth from their mouth - even though in many cases there is error [and a spirit of false prophecy] proceeding forth from that ministry. They have not sought Me in this matter, and because of this they have "allowed" themselves to be deceived. But truly I say to you, those who would "attempt" to represent Me, yet in their hearts there is only wickedness and the seeking after self-glory, shall surely fail in this hour, and as those who have attached themselves to them begin to see this, they will surely repent; and as they open their hearts to hear My voice THEN they shall be led into their "proper place [Kingdom-positioning].

*       For too long, many of My children have walked first by "sight" and not by faith and, thus, they have set themselves in a very dangerous position in this most critical hour. And, unless they repent with a holy repentance they shall be drawn completely out of My Will - while continuing to think [with the assistance of demonic forces] that they are accomplishing a perfect service to Me. All that is apart from Christ [the Anointed One and His Anointing] shall be judged in these days through My great and awesome power [holy fire], and the "rags of unrighteousness" worn by those who have continued to hold to self-desire, and the pursuit of self-glory, shall become evident to all [John 5:41-44]!

*       The difference between the one accord that is the result of the organization of man as opposed to the one accord [perfect agreement, in Christ] that I both desire and require in the midst of My people is that the former is a result of the mind of the flesh and the striving of man in the pursuit of self-glory, whereas, the latter is a result of revelation knowledge and the mind of Christ [1 Corinthians 2:16], and always the spontaneous result of a heart wholly given - a heart that is willing to do ALL of My Will at ALL times [John 5:30-44].

*       Those who desire to be "seen and heard" for the sake of being seen and heard [in their pursuit of self-glory] are a "dangerous entity" in the midst of My people.
"entity" - something that has real existence; being or existence, especially when considered as distinct, independent or self-contained;
        ...."let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith".... Hebrews 12:1b-2a NASB

        ...."Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God".... Colossians 3:1-3 NASB

        ...."A man's pride will bring him low, but a humble spirit will obtain honor".... The fear of man brings a snare, but he who trusts in the LORD will be exalted. Proverbs 29:23, 25 NASB

        ....'"Do not [seek to] be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. But the greatest among you shall be your servant. Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted".... Matthew 23:10-12 NASB
        The quickest way for one to depart from the place of "abiding in spiritual reality" [their esteemed position IN Christ - with both feet firmly planted in the Kingdom] is for them to focus their eyes upon themselves - and, in the same way, the desire to be "seen" [gain acceptance and approval through the praises of men] is a certain hindrance and/or disqualifier as far as one entering into their Kingdom-position in this final hour. For in the Kingdom there is NO such thing as the pursuit of "self-glory" - ONLY the ardent pursuit of one to glorify the Father [and His Word] to the greatest degree in ALL that they say and do.

        ...."Jesus answered, If I were to glorify Myself [magnify, praise, and honor Myself], I would have no real glory, for My glory would be nothing and worthless. [My honor must come to Me from My Father]".... John 8:54 The Amplified Translation

        ...."But seek [aim at and strive after] first of all His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right]".... Matthew 6:33 The Amplified Translation
