This past year, the Lord has been redeeming my business background to birth a unique assignment. The Lord has shown me that it is time to call out those appointed to be kings, teach them to arise and take territory in the world, outside of the church walls, for Jesus. I received the first vision on this in January, but since then there has been nothing, until I toured Israel recently with David Herzog Ministries. My time there was a prophetic awakening, saturated with visions and impartations.
The day after my article, "The Transfer of Wealth," was published on Elijah List (Jan. 17, 2018) I had this vision: Jesus was wearing a long golden robe studded with gems and precious stones. There was a boundless crowd standing before Him. He was throwing out many crowns into the masses (Rev. 19:12: "on His head are many crowns.") There were crowns for entrepreneurs, CEOs, investment experts, real estate moguls, tech innovators, actors, artists, musicians, educators and last but not least, politicians. However, many of these crowns fell to the wayside, into the puddles of mud and onto the ground. Most of the crowd was either dodging the crowns flying towards them or standing there frozen, like a deer in headlights. One or two courageously lunged forward to catch the crowns.
The Lord revealed that most were paralyzed because they felt unworthy to catch the gem-studded crowns. They didn't think they were good enough to assume the identity of kings. The few who caught their crowns started picking up the other crowns and collected as many as they could, like little kids picking up candy falling out of a birthday pinata. Remember Matthew 25:29a? " For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance." I have pondered this vision and shared it through my Kings and Wealth Conference in May. Otherwise, Vision 1 was on the prophetic back burner.
1 Corinthians 13:9 states that prophecy is revealed in part. In time, more was unveiled. Nine months later in Israel, I received Parts 2 and 3 and felt the urgency to release them.
The moment I physically placed my hands on the Western Wall, I saw numerous rows of golden crowns studded with gems, diamonds and pearls, with a long line of kings getting ready for the coronation. I heard pulsating drums, flutes and music fit for a king's procession. At the same time, there was massive bloodshed. The kings were warring, battling to conquer and taking territory.
On Oct. 3, 2018, we were at Bethel, where David Herzog taught extensively that there is an open heaven's portal. I got to experience that firsthand. As soon as I laid my head down on a flat rock, a myriad of flickering, fast-moving images rushed at me.
I saw a massive temple with enormous steps paved in gold leading up to it. Then I saw an army of kings, not only draped but dripping in gold, ascending the massive steps and heading toward the temple.
Jesus was crowned and dressed in gold. Blueprints were rapidly being handed out to the kings, one after another. Books, volumes, instructions, and STRATEGIES were being distributed. I saw calculators in the dark with hands typing on them furiously.
The Call to Emerging Kings and Healing of the Divide between Kings and Priests
A message is emerging and crystallizing as I attempt to piece the three visions together.
For too long, believers have been enveloped by lies of unworthiness resulting in fear and paralysis in taking the world for kingdom purposes. The word "kings" not only refers to political leaders, as we commonly understand it, but to us as God's born-again children having the identity and DNA of kings. Jesus is the King of kings (Rev. 19:16).
The words "success" and "wealth" have been thought taboo in Christian circles for too long. The born-again CEO living for kingdom purposes is rare. The idea of believers rising up to be successful and to take leadership in the world (in media, business, government and so on.) has been unthinkable. Contrary to the undisputed mandate of dominion in Genesis 1:26 to be fruitful and multiply, to fill the earth and subdue it, to have dominion over everything on the earth, many find wealthy Christians offensive.
It is time to call out and manifest the DNA that God has placed in believers, the DNA of kingship. it's time for kings, or kings-to-be, to receive blueprints, strategies from heaven, and take up the high call of heaven-mandated disruption, to remove the "high places" and implement God's plans in the world.
In Vision 3, the calculators in the dark represent tapping into hidden riches (Isa. 45) and diverting wealth into the kingdom from the world.
Finally, in Vision 3, the kings heading up to the temple represent a healing of the unspoken, longstanding divide between kings and priests. First, kings or successful Christian leaders in world positions are scarce. Second, the priests have not been able to shepherd the kings. Many Christian business or political leaders have trouble connecting with church leaders, who generally have little or no experience in the world. Those who have success or wealth have endured so much religious condemnation or witnessed poor church financial stewardship that they don't trust church leadership anymore.
Kings and priests have to come together. The divide has to heal. The time is coming for kings to return to the temple, to the place of worship. In order for the glory to fill the temple as described in 2 Chronicles 7:3, the kings must be submitted to God and be united and aligned with the priests. We are, after all, a nation of kings and priests.
