End Time Harvest - The 3 Levels of Ministry

The last sentence of the Lord’s Prayer “For Thine is the *KINGDOM*, the *POWER* and the *GLORY* forever and ever …”

1. *KINGDOM* (Salvation through the *baptism of water* or Outer Court or Seeing the Kingdom) 2 Corinthians 1:22, “set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.”

2. *POWER* (Sanctification through the *baptism of the Holy Spirit* or Inner Court or possessing the Kingdom) John 3:6-7, “Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’”

3. *GLORY* (Purification through the *baptism  of Fire* or Holy of Holies or manifesting His kingdom). Matthew 3:11-12, “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me will come one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” Hebrews 12:14, “ ... without holiness no one will see the Lord.”

At this *Glory* level, God’s glory rests on the vessel to do His works while the vessel rests in Him (Matthew 11:28-30). Then, the vessel will be like Paul which the handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them (Acts 19:11-12). Peter was so full of the Spirit that radiated upon his shadow and healed the sick (Acts 5:15). Or like Jesus, so full of the Spirit and power that when a woman touched Him, He could feel instantly that the power had gone out from Him (Luke 8:46).

It is a level that God’s manifest glory rests on a vessel that has been cleansed, refined, purified and consecrated by fire.

Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

God bless!
