The 7000 are the ones that will arise in the power of God in the coming seasons. They are everywhere. They are from every denomination but they do not identify themselves by one. Their identity is in Christ and He in them, the hope of glory. They are from all walks of life, young and old (many children will lead the way). They have one vision and one purpose, which is to see Christ glorified and His kingdom come.
They are tired of religion; hypocrisy stinks before them. Their faith is simple and they are pressing past the old into the new. Love is what earmarks them.
Each one of them is growing into full maturity in Christ and each one of them edifies the other. They have known their gifts and also have known their place in the body.
There is a deep hunger that is growing in them. A hunger that will not be satisfied by any other, than the full manifestation of the power of God.
It is a work of the Spirit, and He is orchestrating it around the world in preparing His end-time bride.
A collective reaching out from around the world, that will open the windows of heaven in an unprecedented way like never before. Then, O glory, she will arise in glory, in perfect coordination. A coordination so symphonic and so prefect, that it is (can only be) witnessed from above; for every one has yielded themselves to the Spirit and He has already united their hearts in Christ — and now the glorious manifestation of that is seen as LOVE, as the way in which signs and wonders and miracles abound like never before and the presence and power of God is witnessed like never before.
Each part of the body doing its work as Christ Himself is the head, sending commands directly to each member of His body — and through His body without any block.
Come out my people! Come out from among them (no offense… :); ‘among’ does not relate to the world but to any denomination or group that is not Christ-centered and is not focused on the edification of everyone. As the times are changing in the spiritual realm, God is done with institutionalized church (not an immediate reality but one that will happen in the near future).
Seperate yourselves unto Me. A call to intimacy. A call to denying self completely. A cry of desperation as God meets them halfway. An endowment of great power as the veil between the natural and spiritual realm stands torn! Amen.
Having a glorious time in transit… :)!
In regards to my earlier email on the ‘7000’ I got responses from several of you , the Spirit bearing witness with you to what was said. There was a question that came up from the writings as to what I meant by the institutional church ? There are few things I feel I needed to say in that regard. Firstly, whatever was written had a flow to it and the phrase “the days of the institutional church are over….” I believe is from the Lord. Now, I would like to expound on that prayerfully. Foremost, it is not the setting or the difference in accommodations large (buildings) or small (house churches) that is the main focus. Any one of those can be centered on individuals — their own identity — rather than (or more than) Christ; and any one of those may not be glorifying Christ, fulfilling God’s purpose for them. Having said that, God’s intent these last days is for His entire body to rise to maturity. His power and glory will be there, and those are the seasons He is leading the church into. It is not about a select few functioning in their callings only (I believe in leadership.. :-); it is about everyone functioning fully in their callings.
My understanding in that regard is, the current church (building setting) is not largely geared towards [that], and it cannot be achieved unless:
some radical and 180-degree changes are made
people who are currently leading being willing to take backstage (needs more explanation) and let others lead
provisions are made for everyone to come to a place of functioning in their calling is made.
So, the question in that regard is how many of the current institutional churches will embrace that change? If they do and our prayer is that all of them do, it is a great thing.. :-). One final question to ask in that regard and a more important one is: is this the new wineskin, the new mindset that God wants us to have, and proceed with making every provision for everyone to become mature and become functional? Christ glorified and His body matured, our sole purpose behind our being and functioning. May His bride arise to the full stature of Christ; in Love, Purity and Power! Amen Grace to all of you!John
by Apostle Gabriel Cross The Lord has revealed to me, the spirit of self, in the life of many believers, which is the spirit of division. One is divided against oneself, always second guessing themselves or what God is saying to them. The spirit of division, hinders and retards you or stops you from fulfilling […]
The Biastes continue Season 3 of The Great Reset by attempting to articulate concrete commitments we can make together to help us become better husbands and fathers, yet at the same time advance Christ’s purposes on multiple levels.

Question: How can we as men, whatever our occupation and family situation, make every action count for the Kingdom of God?
Christianity Beyond is a movement of ordinary people who are learning how to make the same kind of extraordinary impact as the Jesus they love. We honor all the ways people have sought to follow Jesus in the past and present, but dare to go beyond that in order to demonstrate to a watching world just how good and worthy Jesus is.
“And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.” — Matthew 23:9
Over the last few years God has been putting me through a graduate course in dealing with my father issues. I still haven’t graduated, but at least I know what my thesis is. 🙂
I never really wanted to be a leader. I just wanted to find a leader I could trust, who cared about the things I cared about, so I could define my mission as a sub-mission of theirs. Unfortunately, things never quite worked out that way.
This is not to denigrate the honorable men (no women, but that’s another story) I have served under in the context of work, ministry and family. I have been extraordinary privileged to have been by led and mentored by a succession of extraordinary men of deep integrity, from my own earthly father to Steve Jobs. People who were sincerely committed to the mission, practiced what they preached, and never abused their authority.
For all their strengths, those leaders all their blind spots. Areas where their behavior didn’t align with the values they genuinely believed in and communicated. Attitudes they were oblivious to that clearly hurt both individuals and the organization’s ability to fulfill its mission. Continue reading →
Discipleship is hard. It requires facing ugly truths about ourselves, letting go of coping strategies that served us well in the past, and taking responsibility for larger dysfunctions that really aren’t our fault. Continue reading →
