The foundation of our fellowship is the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and this Word sets us on the course to build on that foundation.
In a hierarchical structure, man is king and the people live in silence. In the atmosphere of the school of prophets that allows God to be King, the people are free to speak the truth in love and to grow up in all aspects into Him (Ephesians 4:15). The purpose of the five-fold ministries is to equip the saints, but it is the Body that builds itself up in love (Ephesians 4:16).
We must find a way to create the government of God’s Kingdom where He is the King who rules and reigns. In the days of Samuel, God saw Himself as King over Israel, even though it was Samuel who presided over the school of prophets. When the people rejected Samuel, wanting a king, the Lord saw it as a rejection of Himself (I Samuel 8:4-7). The heart of the Father is that He alone wants to be King over His people, individually and together as His family in the prophetic community. He does not want man to usurp His role in the leadership of His people.
Father, we invite You into our lives and into this prophetic community. We ask that You be our King and give us the grace to speak the truth in love. In every way that we have rejected You as our only King, we repent and we declare total freedom for Christ to rule over us as Lord.
