A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND THE SPIRIT OF REVIVAL SO THEY PRAY FOR IT, THEY PROPHECY IT, THEY TEACH IT BUT WHEN IT BEGINS TO MOVE THEY ARE THE FIRST TO FIGHT IT…
God have moved from that which is known and God is beginning to explore new frontiers and new dimensions. There are times in the sequences of God’s operation that He begins to birth things that are not conventional. Most times when God begins to do that is because in the calendar of the divine a new move of a spirit is about to begin. A lot of people don’t understand the spirit of revival so they pray for it, they prophecy it, they teach it but when the spirit of revival begins to move they are the first to fight it because the elements of revival is non-conventional.
It is in the season of revival that a clear departure between the old and the new wine skin is made manifest so the things we know and the things we are used to will no longer be the things that characterize the operations of God on a landscape and if you are not careful at that time because you have been brainwashed by the elements of the old wine skin… now when I say old wine skin I don’t call it in a derogatory sense and I’m not trying to say that is wrong but when I say old wine skin I mean that which God has accomplished, that which God is leaving behind to pioneer a new order in order to bring to bear the next phase of His government.
When those moves begin many people cannot make the needed departure so they choose to remain in the things that they are used to and when they fight the things God is doing; they think they are worshipping God. That was what Saul was doing; he was fighting that which God was doing because it was not consistent with the norm and he was willing to die for it because he thought what he was doing was an act of worship until a bright man appeared in the clouds of heaven and he said Saul Saul why persecutest thou me, immediately Saul recognized His voice and he said who are you Lord? I know I’m working for the Lord but what he doesn’t know is that there is a divide.
God have moved from that which is known and God is beginning to explore new frontiers and new dimensions and of necessity when God establishes and advances new frontiers He raises new warriors, He raises new gatekeepers, He raises new custodians because it is an operation of the spirit that is a departure from that which is known and Saul had to take dressing. In order to prove that he was actually taking dressing his name was changed because a name in the spirit is not nomenclature; a name in the spirit is a signature of authority so when we call Jesus we are not trying to give Him nomenclature.
The name Jesus is a symbol of authority so the authority that Paul had in the old wine skin in the old order could not suffice in the new move of God and in order for that new ordination to take place God had to change his name and he was no longer called brother Saul but he was called Paul the apostle because his identity had to change, his designation in the spirit had to change… the things he knew. He was trained by Gamaliel one of the wisest but immigration had come.
