A WORD FROM APOSTLE ANDREWS
Prophetic Release for 2023
Year of the Reigning Saints
Releasing the True Sons of GOD to Dominate in the Earth Realm
I hear SPIRIT of the LORD saying, it is time for the church (ecclesia) to take her rightful place in the earth representing the Kingdom of GOD and exposing the Kingdom of Darkness. Before we start, let’s get a better understanding of the word “church.” In Matthew 16:18-19 Amplified Bible, JESUS says, And I say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock, I will build My church; and the gates of Hades (death) will not overpower it [by preventing the resurrection of the Christ]. I will give you the keys (authority) of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind [forbid, declare to be improper and unlawful] on earth will have [already] been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose [permit, declare lawful] on earth will have [already] been loosed in heaven.”
Matthew 16:17-19 The Message Translation
Jesus came back, “God bless you, Simon, son of Jonah! You didn’t get that answer out of books or from teachers. My Father in heaven, God himself, let you in on this secret of who I really am. And now I’m going to tell you who you are, really are. You are Peter, a rock. This is the rock on which I will put together my church, a church so expansive with energy that not even the gates of hell will be able to keep it out.
“And that’s not all. You will have complete and free access to God’s kingdom, keys to open any and every door: no more barriers between heaven and earth, earth, and heaven. A yes on earth is yes in heaven. A no on earth is no in heaven.
The Greek word for the word church in this Scripture is “ecclesia.” In the book of Matthew, JESUS used this word three times as he was teaching. The word “ecclesia” in Strong’s Greek Concordance, it is defined as “an assembly, from the word “ek” which means “out of” and the word “klesis” means “a calling.” In layman’s terms, ecclesia means to be “called out to be an assembly.” The word assembly means a body of persons gathered together (as to make laws or for discussion, worship, or entertainment) capitalized: a governing body. especially the lower house of a legislature. 3.: the act of gathering together or state of being assembled.
The Biblical view meaning says, it is in the assembly that we hold one another accountable (Galatians 6:1) and receive instruction from the shepherds (pastors) who keep watch over us (Hebrews 13:17). It is there that we receive prayer and encouragement (James 5:14-16). As you can see, JESUS takes his church (ecclesia) and his Bride very seriously. We the church (ecclesia) have been given a great mandate, commission, and charge to go and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of JESUS, believe in JESUS, and obey JESUS’ words], baptizing them in the name of the FATHER and of the SON, and of HOLYSPIRIT, teaching them to observe everything that He have commanded us; and He is with us always [remaining with us perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
Now that we understand the word church, let’s define the word reign and reigning. The KJV Dictionary defines reign as 1. to possess or exercise sovereign power or authority; to rule; to exercise government, as a king or emperor; or to hold the supreme power. 2. To be predominant; to prevail. 3. To rule; to have superior or uncontrolled dominion. Other definitions of the reign are 1. Royal authority; supreme power; sovereignty. 2. The time during which a king, queen, or emperor possesses supreme authority. 3. Kingdom; dominion. 4. Power; influence. 5. Prevalence.
The word reigning means 1. Holding or exercising supreme power; ruling; governing as king, queen, or emperor. 2. a. Predominating; prevailing; as a reigning vice or disease.
Both words reign and reigning are literally spiritual, mental, and physical positions. When you become born again, a new creation by faith, you receive power (authority, rule, sovereignty, dominion, kingdom, influence, prevalence) to become the sons of GOD. But as many as received him (JESUS), to them He (JESUS) gave them power to become the sons (children) of GOD, even to them that believe on his name (John 1:12).
The last word we will deal with is saint(s). The KJV Dictionary defines saint as 1. A person sanctified; a holy or godly person; one eminent for piety and virtue. It is particularly applied to the apostles and other holy persons mentioned in Scripture. 2. One of the blessed in heaven. Rev. 18. 3. The holy angels are called saint. Deut. 33. Jude 14. 4. One canonized by the church of Rome.
Saints are believers and citizens in the Kingdom of GOD saved by grace through faith. Saints live by holy standards, morals, ethics, righteousness, integrity, innocence, cleanliness, and purification. Saints are consecrated (separated ones) from all corruption, filthiness, and perversion from all evil and immoral living. Being a saint is living in total obedience to GOD as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to GOD which is our reasonable service (act of worship). (Romans 12:1-2) Now that we have a working definition of the reigning saints, we can begin the prophetic release for 2023 and the coming years ahead.
The church as we see and know it today has been making great headway and blazing trails for the coming next generation. Partly, some of the church has been sleeping or unconscious in the spirit due to the soul not complying with the newborn again spirit. JESUS said in John 3:3, 5, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you unless a person is born again [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified], he cannot [ever] see and experience the kingdom of God.” “I assure you and most solemnly say to you unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot [ever] enter the kingdom of God. Notice the words He says, see, experience, and enter, very powerful words that cannot be taken lightly nor for granted.
JESUS is saying to the Nicodemus’s of today, we must which is a (command, absolute) be born-again (born anew, born afresh, new creation, new spirit) our old man is passed away and made new by faith and belief in receiving JESUS (2 Corinthians 5:17.) I know this may sound basic and elementary but in order to see (spiritually, mentally, physically), experience (spiritually, mentally, physically), and enter (spiritually, mentally, physically), we must be born again (receive JESUS CHRIST) by grace through faith. From that moment of conversion our eye gate, ear gate, and heart gate are open to all the eternal realities of GOD, the Kingdom of Heaven, the Courts of Heaven, and earth. 16 But blessed [spiritually aware, and favored by God] are your eyes, because they see; and your ears, because they hear. 17 I assure you and most solemnly say to you, many prophets, and righteous men [who were honorable and in right standing with God] longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it. (Matthew 13:11-17 Amplified Bible)
9 but just as it is written [in Scripture], “Things which the eye has not seen, and the ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man,
All that God has prepared for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, who obey Him, and who gratefully recognize the benefits that He has bestowed].” 10 For God has unveiled them and revealed them to us through the [Holy] Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things [diligently], even [sounding and measuring] the [profound] depths of God [the divine counsels and things far beyond human understanding]. (1 Corinthians 2:9-10 Amplified Bible)
GOD is releasing Rhema and revelation from the portals of Heaven but only for the mature reigning saints with clean hands and pure hearts in believing and receiving mode and posture, that are pressed in His presence.
The reigning saints has more wisdom, knowledge, and understanding in how to go before our heavenly FATHER and Just Judge into the Courts of Heaven, petitioning the accusations of Satan to be overturned and ruled in our favor, to receive our just rewards, godly bonds, blessings, favor, and promises released to us and our bloodlines. As the reigning saints, our concerning, anxiousness, worry, and fear is no longer the hierarchy of needs such as water, food, clothes, housing, protection, security, preservation, self-actualization, and significance. But our main and only focus is the Kingdom Business of the FATHER and the fulfillment of His will. (Matthew 6:24-34 Amplified Bible) In for the saints to reign and dominate in this season till CHRIST comes, we must be certain and absolute about our I am nature and identity in CHRIST. The reigning aspect or should I say conscious mindset also deals with reckoning. The word reckoning is a calculation or number you estimate.
It is also recognizing and recognition of surety and security as sons, daughters, heirs, joint heirs, kings, and priests of the Most-High GOD. Only the remnant and righteous that has pure hearts shall see GOD and receive Rhema and revelation from Heaven that others will not see, nor hear, nor will they understand.
14 But the natural [unbelieving] man does not accept the things [the teachings and revelations] of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness [absurd and illogical] to him; and he is incapable of understanding them because they are spiritually discerned and appreciated, [and he is unqualified to judge spiritual matters]. 1 Corinthians 2:14 Amplified Bible
The reigning saints has been transformed and transitioned by CHRIST in stealth mode, which means spiritually, hidden or in an invisible force field and shield. This stealth mode is also what Apostle Paul describe in Ephesians 6:10-18, the armor of GOD that cannot be seen by Satan and his demonic forces or anyone outside of the Kingdom of GOD. As we move in stealth mode, the angelic beings assigned to the reigning saints will go ahead or before us to aid, assist, protect, guard, gather up, and release what’s rightfully ours, the restitution and recompence of our ancestors and bloodlines. We the reigning saints are in a gaining and maintaining position from Heaven to dominate in every arena in this life and the life to come. We are unstoppable and untouchable with unspeakable joy.
No weapon that is formed against us shall prosper. For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ, being ready to punish every act of disobedience, when your own obedience [as a church] is complete. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6)
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places. (Ephesians 6:12)
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of [a]witnesses [who by faith have testified to the truth of God’s absolute faithfulness], stripping off every unnecessary weight and the sin which so easily and cleverly entangles us, let us run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us, 2 [looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, [b]disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work]. (Hebrews 12:1-2 Amplified Bible)
There is a remnant that GOD is releasing in earth through His church. And this remnant has been hidden and concealed until now. The reigning saints are that remnant that GOD has kept in secret in the cave of Adullam and underground being made as praisers, worshippers, warriors, and intercessors that has been unknown until now. This is the breaking of day that those who like Jacob (Israel) wrestled with the angel of LORD saying, I won’t let go except thou bless me. We are coming out, mighty, powerful, and strong in the LORD, ready for battle in spirit, soul, mind, and body.
Proverbs 31:17 Amplified
She equips herself with strength [spiritual, mental, and physical fitness for her God-given task] And makes her arms strong.
Job 40:7 Amplified Bible
Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee and declare thou unto me.
Psalm 45:3 Amplified Bible
Gird thy sword upon [thy] thigh, O [most] mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.
Joel 1:13 Amplified Bible
Gird yourselves, and lament, ye priests: howl, ye ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God: for the meat offering and the drink offering is withholden from the house of your God.
1 Peter 1:13 Amplified Bible
Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
The reigning saints are a dominating church sent on a mission by GOD through His SON with the government upon his shoulders bringing justice and peace to earth through His church. Prepare your minds by the transformation and renewing of His Word, that mighty signs and wonders will be demonstrated through a renewed reigning church. We are in an unstoppable dispensation and season unlike any other and GOD is ready to release His reigning church in every sphere, mountain, territory, realm, and kingdom of this world. There will be more major exposure in government, politics, corporations, religious organizations, educational institution, healthcare, media, entertainment, communities, municipals, districts, cities, states, national, and international globally. The world system is going to see the true government of GOD standing tall and strong on the visible body and shoulders of JESUS in and through reigning saints (ecclesia).
No more cowering, hiding, lower, and hanging our heads and shoulders down as if were a weak, fearful church. We are strong, courageous, and mighty and the gates of Hades (hell) shall not prevail against us (ecclesia.) We are going to see more unsaved and ungodly people being converted in an instant through the reigning saints wearing the garments of praise, the blood of YESHUA, the coat of many colors (representation of the twelve tribes of Israel), and the power and governing of HOLYSPIRIT to demonstrate the greatness and glory of the FATHER. Pay close attention to the voice of YAWHEH releasing Rhema and revelation for every pivotal move and decision that you make. It will either make, shape, or shift you into His purpose or it will break, shake, and split you into an unconscious and delirious place and space.
Nevertheless, be sober [well balanced and self-disciplined], be alert and cautious at all times. That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour. But resist him, be firm in your faith [against his attack—rooted, established, immovable], knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being experienced by your brothers and sisters throughout the world. [You do not suffer alone.] (1 Peter 5:8-9 Amplified Bible)
Father, we come to you, and we say thank you for your grace and your tender mercies that are new every morning. We rejoice and were glad to be your chosen sons and daughters, you called before the foundation of the beginning. We bless your matchless name forever more. JESUS, we thank you for taking our place and dying for our sins. We thank you that we have been redeemed by and through your precious blood that was shed on Calvary.
We repent of any sins and the sins of our forefathers and ancestors. We come before your heavenly throne, the Courts of Heaven to petition and plead our cause of the Adversary falsely accusing us of our iniquities, our sins, and the sins of our bloodlines. We sign the decree of divorce of ungodly bonds, verdicts, liens, and any unjust works, that you would eradicate and erase from our records in your Courts, not guilty and acquitted from this deed, in YESHUA’s name. We ask, JUST JUDGE, and FATHER, to release your holy angel armies on our behalf to set traps and snares for the enemy and his demonic cohorts. We ask, Heavenly FATHER, and JUST JUDGE to send your ministering angel armies to release favor, blessings, and GODLY bonds to us, your sons and daughters, the reigning saints.
We decree and declare yours, O Lord is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and on the earth; Yours is the dominion and kingdom, O Lord, and You exalt Yourself as head overall. 12 Both riches and honor come from You, and You rule overall. In Your hand is power and might; and it is in Your hands to make great and to give strength to everyone. 13 Now therefore, our God, we thank You, and praise Your glorious name. 1 Chronicles 29:11-13 Amplified Bible)
