We have come to a time of separation. You can choose between the minds of Smallville whether it be Vineland or Nemoland or the truth. This is how you will know that I have spoken the truth and these critics of like mind are not of the mind of Christ. I do not yet possess a definite prophetic word but I do have a definite prophetic sense I am convinced at the moment that I cannot share this with you successfully unless the eyes of our understanding be enlarged. A man’s reach should exceed his grasp. The problem with the residents of Smallville is that they reduce God down to the vindicator of their judgments to the arbitrator of petty human relations and squabbles, to their servant. It is time for some of you to pack up your things and move out of Smallville with its diatribe of faithlessness playing as its anthem.
So as the psalmist says in Psalms 34:3 I ask you “O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.” Our vision is so impaired when it comes to seeing the work of God in our times and lines that we must use the magnifying glass of His word and His Spirit to enlarge our view. That will be the goal of this magnify series.
This is something we must do together. I likewise need an enlargement. When Scott and I started Dorean we began with prayer and fasting. It was not super spiritual stuff that brought us into the battle. Living in Christ the fruit of the Light is goodness, righteousness, and truth. When the darkness of mortgage fraud was exposed to this light we received our assignment. Our orders were not a complete array of battle tactics or prophetic words on the entire war. In fact more than anything our orders were to pray. Anybody who lives in Smallville I will say boldly does not know how to pray. They cannot even comprehend prayer. I will even venture to say to my brothers and sisters that when we are finished a little magnification most of you will have an entirely new prayer life that is potent and effectual. The first part of Dorean was to identify an injustice and to involve ourselves with the victims. That is the beginning of prayer. In this beginning is the essence of the whole truth of God’s redemptive work in Christ. Christ is our kinsman redeemer. To accomplish this He has to first kin himself to us by putting on our flesh life in our environment. Once He identified with us He went to prayer. Prayer is not natural to humans, it is stupid. It is only natural to those whose spirits have been renewed, made alive. It is a spiritual function only. True prayer God always answers so to learn how to pray is of an immeasurable value. Dorean in its current state with all your struggles and our incarceration is an answer to those early prayers of our beginning. This you will understand shortly.
