VACATED THRONES

As there are only 30 days left till Rosh Hashanah (in Hebrew: ראש השנה rosh ha-shanah), there are coming days for self-examination and I suggest that we get ready for them by looking at what God was doing this elapsing year and what He looks at for the next year.

In September 2007, exactly on Rosh Hashanah, the Lord showed me a season that few people could understand. I had to pay attention to what was going on so that I could interpret it correctly and with a ministering heart to those that were going through it. For me it was a season that I had already experienced once and had tasted myself its bitter flavor and, also, the sweetness of comprehension that followed after it.

In 2003 I heard for the first time from the Lord that there are seasons during which He vacates thrones. I did not understand what this meant. He told me that for every man there is a time to go back home, but sometimes God gathers His army together. Many people of God were to die that very year. I have no human explanation, but I knew that the Lord longed to be with them right then, at that season, and exactly in that way by bringing them together. At the same time He spoke about vacating thrones for a purpose but I will talk about it later on.

I knew what would happen. A few years earlier I had woken up weeping and had spent the entire night interceding for Derek Prince – that he might be comforted for the death of his wife. I was praying for his soul to endure till the day in which his Beloved would call him. In the morning I had fallen asleep peacefully knowing that the Lord would call him but not a day earlier than the destined and during the time that was left for him he would be comforted.

In 2003 this minister of God, who had laid the foundations in my life without ever seeing me, went home – together with him also many other prominent people of God and, perhaps, also such who no one knew. Among them was also my father, for whom I won several months of life before he was baptized in water and in the Spirit. He passed a few days after he blessed me with his hand placed on my head. Just like the patriarchs.

The same year I was warned that taking people home to heavenly places would be imitated by Beelzebub.

I didn’t go a conference that gathered the fathers of the house in Bulgaria. I do not understand what happened, but I spent about three hours on the floor in tears unable to pray normally and understanding completely the meaning of the INABILITY to pray and the assistance of the Spirit in this process. The only thing that I was crying out loud with all my strength was “Rescue the fathers!“

And rescued they were. A few of those that were my leaders had gathered in a local restaurant. Just a few minutes after they’d left, a bomb had exploded in that same restaurant.

The Lord showed me with this that no one can be snatched from His hand unless His will is such. And He’s always faithful to give a burden of prayer to his saints who understand the times, seasons and principles of the Kingdom of God.

So, in 2007 on Rosh Hashanah God showed me that this season would repeat. I am afraid I didn’t do the utmost this time and I didn’t write in time about what had already been happening in the spirit and what would follow in the natural. I prayed about all those that had to let their parents and close relatives go back Home, but this thought kept haunting me that if I had written this down (I actually wrote this down, but I lost the file) – I could have brought comfort and understanding.

For it is not true that death is inapprehensible. It is simply strong. And if we knew its source in the particular case – whether it is God’s angel of death taking God’s people, or the spirit of death that is coming to kill and destroy – then we could be more effective in our prayers. I pray today for all those that need to be comforted or strengthened in their battles according to the situations they are in.

Now, at the end of September, this period ends. Not that there won’t be those that die in the Lord, but this will not happen with such intensity as it was this year. It is, however, as a duty from the Lord for me to give an interpretation of how this affects God’s Kingdom here on earth.

During the new year there comes a new understanding for a re-ordering taking place in God’s Kingdom. From the ministry of Chuck Pierce they are speaking about taking positions, for bringing us to the places God has assigned for us.

But before this comes the knowledge of:

THE VACATED THRONES

They are places of authority. Places of power and government, but not in the administrative realm, neither in the church’s models of government, but in the government of God’s Kingdom itself.

Remember the sons of Thunder, sons of Zebedeee. Didn’t Jesus outsmart them? They would drink from His cup and be baptized with the baptism of His sufferings, but a promise for thrones at His sides they did not receive. Such redistribution only the Father could make.

What does the word of God tell us about how during the Old Testament times the thrones of government were occupied? When they were vacated. How did this happen? With the death of the one that was placed on the throne. Not one thing before this was allowed, could be righteous or would have brought a blessing to the future king.

Young Solomon received a throne of government that was being prepared for a long time for him and history does not mention of another king like him. He, however, did not receive the throne from his father.

David himself, when he was a poor shepherd boy, had to pass through the transition of being a brave keeper of property, a musician and worshipper, a prophet, a strong warrior till he reached the crown and the sceptre of government. However, he did not replace wicked Saul during his lifetime as he understood that only the Father gives thrones. When Saul died, however, his throne was left empty and someone had to sit on it in order for the governance of the country to be preserved.

Judas was one of the twelve apostles. Peter, too. Both sinned. But one of them renounced and repented while the other betrayed and committed suicide. The first one became a leader of the church in the 1st century. Judas, however, left only one… vacant place after himself. To be precise, actually Judas left a vacant throne after himself. He had declared an abdication from his Kingdom.

No, I am not crazy. Judah had a Kingdom that was far greater than the kingdoms of men. Just as His Lord was the King of Kings, don’t you think that Judas was one of these kings?

And not only he. Me, you, my apostle, my associates, the ones born by me in the spirit, the entire Body of Christ – we have been called Kings and Priests.

Don’t tell me that the kings sit in shaking chairs made of rattan and move the pieces on the chessboard.

THEY SIT UPON THRONES

It is another question how many of them realize it, how many of them are child-like and do not have yet the right to exercise their authority from the throne. Nevertheless, the King’s kings have thrones. And each one sits on his own throne.

Such is the principle of God’s Kingdom each king of the King looks straight ahead as the cherubs did (Ezekiel 10:21.)

Everyone who would try to take somebody else’s place would have been convicted by the military history as a usurper.

For my greatest regret I understand that most people do not understand what the thrones exactly are.

For some people who have had a complex of inferiority and who haven’t been healed of it, the thrones are a place of human power, pride, overeating and indifference – the Sin of Sodom I would say.

For the ones that are called but disobedient such as Saul was, the thrones are the power to complete the work quickly in our own way. The sin of witchcraft and rebellion, isn’t it?

But, for the faithful ones, the thrones are only one thing a place from which to call for the Kingdom of God to be on earth just as it is in Heaven – a place of government, a place from the Lord’s prayer. A place you step down from for only to two reasons to worship, or if you die.

The twenty four old men were, in fact, twenty four elders, wise governors who sat on thrones actually kings. They stepped down from the thrones only to worship the Lamb:

10The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

11Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Revelation 4:10-11 (KJV)

The second reason for no longer being on the throne is that you are dead.

But precious is the death of His saints. Those, who pass away, go back home to reign with Him in the places prepared for them. But they still leave something behind them. And this is namely empty thrones.

These are the places of government, position, authority and power in the spirit. They may be taken by the sons of age by faith and as the Spirit appoints it.

Remember that the apostles prayed about who should take up Judas place:

23 And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.

24 And they prayed and said, “You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen

25 to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.”

26 And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

Acts 1:23-26 (NKJV)

The place on the throne is given for ministry. But some of our acquaintances who died in the Lord were not in a such position you might say. Most probably, they have been but didn’t have the time or have been under age and immature to sit on their thrones, or they might have not wanted it. Of course, we all are kings and priests and not less than that.

Before going further I will tell you how I found my throne.

It was years ago when God showed me one minister and asked me: ‘Valentina, do you want Me to give you this ministry, because it is necessary for Me to take My servant to Me now. There’s no one to take up the ministry and the governance. I need someone who will promise Me that he or she will cast out demons, will heal, teach and prophesy just as My servant has been faithful?

I said: ‘Oh, yes, Lord.’ But He went on: ‘But I want you to expand the Kingdom

I simply said ‘Yes.’

Years passed. Many things happened and one day I found myself in a country that was unknown to me. A nation which I’d longed to discover in a new way for years.

In the beginning of 2008 me and my family we bought a two family house in Germany. We occupied one part of the house and the other part we gave for rent. And we started seeking the face of the Father for His will for this land. Shortly after that we learned something amazing. The house we bought was not simply a house. Once it was a part of the estate of a castle which was destroyed as late as in 1945. In this house lived the bailiff of the castle himself. I was overwhelmed. In 2001 when I was writing a children’s book I had a dream which became a part of the foreword of the book. In that dream I was the bailiff of a castle and a guardian of an entire generation of people who are still children. This so called Abigail generation (Abigail means “my father is joy”) – a generation that would connect with the fathers – something Malachi spoke about.

Thus I knew that in the spirit on that place there stands a throne of government. And somebody had to take it up. Years ago I learned the way for me deliverance for His people, later I learned which generation I was sent to and now I learned from which land I had to start my governance. The castle was the Church of Christ; Jesus was the King of this Kingdom and the Kingdom itself God’s Kingdom.

Everyone could find his or her throne according to their maturity and measure.

But I will not stop with this. The biggest surprise still awaits you because there is one very significant throne that stays vacated and awaits for the entire church to occupy it.

THE THRONE OF SATAN

Ahh, HERETIC! No, I’m not. But this will open your eyes to know the marvelous season of occupying thrones that awaits us. For this throne can be conquered even by the minors as only knowledge of the Father and the faith of the just is what is needed.

Ezekiel 28 is a dreadful chapter of the Bible. If, of course, something dreadful could be found in the Word of God. But I shuddered each time I reached it and deliberately skipped it. Years, years on end. What an omission!

I don’t like reading about satan. Wasn’t the daily battle with his servants just enough for me – and then reading about him?

Notwithstanding, the Spirit of God many times drew my attention until one day I was blown away by what I learned. And this was namely – THE THRONE OF SATAN IS VACATED. AND IT MUST BE OCCUPIED.

1 The word of the LORD came to me again, saying,

2 “Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “ Because your heart is lifted up, And you say, ‘I am a god, I sit in the seat of gods, In the midst of the seas,’ Yet you are a man, and not a god, Though you set your heart as the heart of a god

3 (Behold, you are wiser than Daniel! There is no secret that can be hidden from you!

4 With your wisdom and your understanding You have gained riches for yourself, And gathered gold and silver into your treasuries;

5 By your great wisdom in trade you have increased your riches, And your heart is lifted up because of your riches),”

6 ‘Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “ Because you have set your heart as the heart of a god,

7 Behold, therefore, I will bring strangers against you, The most terrible of the nations; And they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom, And defile your splendor.

8 They shall throw you down into the Pit, And you shall die the death of the slain In the midst of the seas.

Ezekiel 28:1-8 (NKJV)

Later on he explains the reason why this angel was created and why with such fabulous beauty – even the instruments for praise were created for him.

But what did satan do? He said he sat on God’s throne, he said he had the wisdom of God, he traded with the precious things of God’s Kingdom and sinned.

Then God prophesied I will bring strangers against you, the most terrible of the nations; and they shall draw their swords against the beautiful works of your wisdom and will defile your splendor;

The terrible of the nations are not just the armies of Nebuchadnezzar, but the Saints of the Lamb who war with the blood of the Lamb and with the word of their testimony. Because only the sword of God’s word and the testimony of faith can pull down satanic rulers from thrones, authorities and powers.

And because satan was defeated on the Cross, the King of Kings, Lord Jesus, before He ascended He commissioned us to preach the Kingdom of God to the ends of the Earth.

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Matthew 28:18-20 (NKJV)

Jesus won on the Cross and gave us His royal authority for expanding the Kingdom of God:

28 But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you.

Matthew 12:28 (NKJV)

Satan is the one who makes places of influence in the minds of men by strongholds made of lies that are called thrones.

Actually, there’s a place in the spirit unoccupied by the Church yet. A throne that has been vacated at the rise of the King from the death on the Cross.

What is this place? A place of powerful and godly praise. A place, where no memorized songs exist, not even the songs of famous musical ministries. A praise that is born directly from the Throne of God.

The throne of satan has been a place of praise. Today the church acts foolishly and superstitiously by refusing to accept that it is its honor to sit on this throne and to accomplish its other important mission to praise its beloved from the heart of its Heart, to give all its precious instruments to proclaim the greatness of the One who comes to govern.

The throne of satan has nothing to do with its former owner, as did the throne of the wicked Saul that passed in possession of king David and on that throne exactly King Jesus was born. That’s why the Throne itself is clean.

You see, the throne of satan has been given to him so that he can sit on it but not to remain on it all the time. Actually, he received it with one purpose to be able to step down from it and worship as the twenty four elders did.

We have a throne of praise and we have to get on it first and to fill up the insufficiency of godly praise and then step down and worship.

God took his saints, killed his enemy through the most terrible among the nations and distributed the vacated thrones.

Come on, you elders, now is the time to worship. Step down from your thrones.

2009 begins now at the end of September. A year of government and worship.

We don’t understand so much this thing with the will of the father, the old folk, the dotardHow many of our fathers had good will towards us?

And yet, is the Father such as this?

Isn’t it better to do what we already know – we are already grown, don’t we?

Matthew 7:21 (NKJV)

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

To do the will of your father has nothing to do with age, stature or any other measure. Jesus was 12 years old when he was found in the temple and He was seeking the will of His Father though the parents responsible for Him did not sent him there themselves. (And, may be, they should?)

Because the five-fold gifts have a very strong calling, sometimes they miss the most important thing – and that is namely – the will of the father.

Restraint is a sweet fruit just like the quickness of obedience. There’s sweetness about seeing how the Spirit moves in a congregation which has 10 prophets, but only three of them prophesy the rest judge. It is sweet because you know that everyone of them has the potential to stand up and deliver the heart of God for God’s people but they do only what their Father does. E.g. they would stand only if they saw that this is a unique move for them in just that moment.

Some time ago I realized a solemn truth. We’ve created so many false or rather not well considered doctrines out of just a few bible verses.

Matthew 9:37 (NKJV)

Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.

His workers are not few. But few of them qualify as laborers.

You know this, don’t you – about this certificate of proficiency they’ll give you for some kind of job.

I’m asking you today do you have a certificate for being a laborer of the harvest?

Prophets may prophesy and yet might not be laborers of the harvest, apostles may build churches, but with them they might not build the kingdom of Heaven but their own one

HERE’S THE CERTIFICATE:

I DO WHAT I SEE IN PRAYER THAT MY FATHER IS DOING.

Stamp

Laborer of the harvest, JSC

The young apostle in Germany, whom I told about in my first posting, spoke at length with my husband. I was only listening and thinking to myself. Was he smaller than the others? Was he immature or not an apostle of God at all? Neither of these.

Apostles are a gift to the Church from its Head and Lord. They are part of the five gifts of ministry which primary purpose is to train the whole Body of Christ till they bring it to the fullness and the measure of Christ, to a state of no confusion, but of firmness and commitment.

This is exactly what was troubling the young apostle that there’s no commitment in the students’ campus church where he started to pastor. His people came and went... including me. Was this wrong?

To answer this question, we have to give a definition first to the calling of each gift – of the place and the people to whom he was sent. Without such definition some things will settle in the hearts of the five-fold gifts – human grief, discouragement and, probably,… backsliding from the calling at a later stage.

The problem of this young apostle was that it was not defined to him what the congregation he pastors is. In this case a students’ church people that had already given their hearts to God in their homelands and who came here to worship and be a part of the Body. This in itself is a transient congregation. The commitment here is only to God, but not to the leadership. The leaders of a congregation like this are such who only water, only sowers or only reapers.

36 And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.

37 For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.

38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.” John 4:36-38 (NKJV)

But the gift of the apostle cries out. It cries out for building up of the church, for commitment. This is the way it is because the gift cries with the power of the blood. The blood is life. The blood that Jesus, God’s Anointed One, shed on the Cross was to give us life in fullness. Jesus spent three days in Hell. To me this seems worse than the Cross. On the Cross He still spoke with the Father. In Hell – He preached and spoke alone to those that had waited their judgment since the time of Noah. And then He led captive a host of captives and He gave gifts to men. And, after he went below every other place and ascended at the right hand of the Father, then He sent His Spirit and gave gifts to men. Gifts paid for with blood and martyrdom.

That is why now each gift of the five-fold leadership cries out – with the power of life. And it does not matter how long this brother or sister have been in the faith their gift is crying out: “Use me as intended, use me.

That is why apostles, prophets, evangelizers, pastors and teachers, if they are truly such, they begin to build up little by little regardless of whether they’ve received someone’s permission or not. They build according to the measure of grace and faith. They know they serve the Lord of life, that they are accountable first before Him. Howeverthey cannot do it alone. That’s why there are five different gifts and all are called to build TOGETHER.

The reason this young apostle used to get hurt so easily was that there was no other gift with him to define to him the problem. The apostle was called to build-up churches but where was the prophet to give definition, where was the teacher to give teaching?

If he desired to continue his apostolic work, he had simply to agree to build this campus church with no bitterness, to equip in it strong and sound trainers that would be able, when sent to their homelands, to build up the Body of Christ. Or, he had to define himself as an apostle of new and permanent by location Christ’s communities and leave the transient students’ church under someone else’s overseeing.

The gifts cry with the power of the blood and we must not shut our ears to them. We’ve all been sent to a gift that cries out.

They are hausmaister, mechanics, housewives, bureaucrats and eurocrats, presbyters in a catholic or protestant community.

They say: “Lass mich in Ruhe!“ (“Leave us in peace!“)

To be left in peace is the craving of all human beings. That’s why I would have respect for the boundaries of everyone that need them. But what is peace? The state of wholeness and health – in spirit, soul and body. I would say even economically and politically. We could continue to count to infinity. The season of Earth, however, is not a season of peace.

The important thing is how those that are God’s eyes respond to the cry of the land – the prophets that are positioned in the land and for all nations bear their own responsibility to tell the truth.

Today Germany desires ease. The average German’s daily round after the 8-hours working day is called Selfishness and Isolation. According to some statistics, Germans are second in spending on food per month – about 2,000 Euro per household. They come back from work, dine and shut themselves up in their community.

The question what happens out there, beyond me and mine, is not so live.

What do the prophets say? We want peace, give us peace and now it is a time of peaces. They are not delivering God’s heart for this European nation – a nation which in fact is… the Heart of Europe. Is this heart sick?

Yes.

Jeremiah 6:14
They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. (KJV)

Germany’s false prophets are ordinary people, called to tell the truth and to cure the heart of their nation. This, however, does not happen.

Nobody knows what’s going on with his neighbors, who they are, what they dream about, what their purposes are. The church is either an exhibition center or a stage for showing off the boy’s choir or rock bands. It is not, a regulator of society. The church in Germany is not the Ecclesia. It does not resemble the reformed Luther’s church in the least – it cannot afford being a changing and governing one, because it itself is part of the state structures, to which each church member tithes.

Yes, and here we get to the root of the problem. The nation is sick. It worships the state-god, to which it tithes, from which it receives financial aid to pay its rent and bills…

Germany is the sick heart of Europe and all prophets that are called to heal this heart need to return from their own ways, from their selfish lives and remember they’ve been positioned right HERE… to cure profoundly the hurt of God’s people.

Secret incest, idolatry, fornication are the wounds of the land. How much they resemble this diagnosis:

12 “And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write,

‘These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword:

13 “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.

14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. 15 Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.[a]

16 Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”’ Revelation 2:12-17 (NKJV)

Germany’s false prophets are, in fact, God’s prophets who forgot their identity and which God they actually serve.

And how did Jesus choose His disciples, whom He was preparing to be the trainers of the church? He chose 12 that had to teach 70 and then thousands. How did He choose them? What was that which distinguished them from the crowd? Christ’s disciples were able to face the truth. For the rest it was all tales, but these were called to hear the truth with only one purpose – to be able to pass it on later to others.

The ones able to face and tell the truth – these are the prophets Germany needs. I call them the healers. They are somewhere around here and I hope to find them – the ones who love the tranquility of riches, the ones who plow with twelve yoke of oxen – Elishas.

Here’s your cloak. Come; let’s cure the heart of Europe.
