This morning at 5:30 am the Lord spoke a very clear word to me, so much so, that I had to rise quickly out of bed and just write.  I could have written more but my hand got tired so here is what I received from the Lord from about 5:45 am - 7:15 am:

Background to the word I received:
The first thing I do when I believe the Lord is going to run some new revelation through me is to clean up the area around where I plan to sit and hear the Lord's voice.  While I was scrubbing away on my hands and knees in our kitchen, the Lord started to repeat something that He has said many times before,  "on this floor you are in the highest position in Me, doing what you are doing right now, scrubbing the kitchen floor"!  This is your high position!

Just as our Lord emptied Himself of His high position (Phil. 2:7) in the Godhead to become a servant, so we, in same fashion, take on the form of a servant by doing the menial tasks that are needed to restore the sanctuary of God.  

In the reforms of Hezekiah, king of ....Judah...., Hezekiah's first work was to consecrate the priests and the Levites.  After the priests and Levites were cleansed, Hezekiah issued an edict to have these consecrated ministers remove the wicked idols and vile debris out of the ....temple.. of ..God.... and its sanctuary and cast these vile things into the brook Kidron.

II Chron. 29:5-7

"Hear me, Levites! Now sanctify yourselves, sanctify the house of the LORD God of your fathers, and carry out the rubbish from the holy [place]. For our fathers have trespassed and done evil in the eyes of the LORD our God; they have forsaken Him, have turned their faces away from the dwelling place of the LORD, and turned [their] backs [on Him]. They have also shut up the doors of the vestibule, put out the lamps, and have not burned incense or offered burnt offerings in the holy [place] to the God of Israel.

In that same spirit we are called today to bring the of ..Christ.... back to Christ's rule and authority through His precious Holy Spirit.  

*NOTE - Please read the rest of the restorative work of the Levites to gain more understanding of the context to the word I received from the Lord this morning.


The words received from the Lord on Feb. 27, 2009 (5:45 am – 7:15 am)

The word comes from the prophecy of Ezra in chapter 1:1-11 (NIV version) and starting in verse 1 where we read:

Ezra 1:1

"In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the Lord spoken by Jeremiah, the Lord moved the heart of Cyrus king of Persia tomake a proclamation throughout his realm and to put it in writing:"

I, the Living God, always fulfill the words that flow through my prophets.  This is new time where a new king (Cyrus) has been appointed by Me to make a proclamation throughout the entire realm (world) to release my chosen ones to rebuild my temple, which is My people, those I have purchased with my Son's blood.  

The blood of My Son, the Christ, secured a covenant with My People that speaks better things then that of Abel's.  I will restore and even resurrect My purposes in the earth realm.  The resurrection of My work and word is Christ's chief and primary work in the earth.  

For the earth is His and all that is contained therein, His blood secured the earth realm to do with as He pleases.  The scepter is in His right Hand and He moves that scepter at the sway of His sovereign will.

"Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up again"  I will restore My People and My temple on the earth to prepare for My Son's return.

Ezra 1:2

"This is what Cyrus king of ..Persia.. says: " 'The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at ..Jerusalem.. in ....Judah....".

Personal words to JK:

"My son, Jonathan David Keener, has been appointed to by the Father in heaven to build a temple in Pilot Mtn and extend this temple's influence through out the whole earth.  In the same manner as Jerusalem is My place of dwelling and My eye is especially upon her business, our work that we are too accomplish has a starting point.  ....Pilot.. ..Mountain.... is our starting point; this is a great mystery to many but has been the Lord's purpose from the beginning of time to do this work in Pilot Mtn, for such a time as this".

The body of Christ:
The leader that the Lord has appointed is ready to launch God's people back to do the work they were saved and separated by God to do.  My people have been languishing for years under heavy burdens and forced labor but they are now being summoned to go back to build the Lord's temple.  I have made all the arrangements for them to perform the work of restoring My kingdom on the earth.

Ezra 1:3,4

"Anyone of his people among you--may his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem in Judah and build the temple of the Lord, the God of Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem. And the people of any place wheresurvivors may now be living are to provide him with silver and gold, withgoods and livestock, and with freewill offerings for the ..temple.. of ....Jerusalem.....' "

Serve Now!  Do it Today! This work of rebuilding God's people, which are the temple of the Lord.  Today we must reconstruct the new man in Christ to fashion him according to Christ's design!  The intention of the King of the Universe shall be to reconstruct His Church globally.

His people (Gentiles & Jews) who are scattered all over the world shall rise up NOW!  Today we are to go up to ....Jerusalem.... (in the spirit) to start this rebuilding work!

This work is real just as the work in the days of Ezra.  This work must be done we the people of God must obey!  The funding is demanded by the King of the Universe our Lord and His Christ!  Monies are being funneled to accomplish to provide the necessary resources to assist in travel expenses and other requirements to initiate the rebuilding process!  

This work is underway as we sit here today!  It is already underway by virtue of this Divine edict!  Every man and woman called to this reclamation project must understand their role and function in the Spirit.  The work is being managed by God Himself.  Accept your role in this work with gladness of heart for this work shall be accomplished in My Power and for My glory!

We are the people of God today.  We have already been chosen to be in His kingdom at this time.  We are the survivors that He has brought through the fire of His refinement!
We must ask the Lord to show us who He has chosen and we must believe that they will hear His call!  We are His voice when we speak to the people, we do not speak of our own accord.  No!  When we speak we are actually speaking with His Authority and under His influence!  

Yes, Today! Your words are my edict to the world.  My church shall rise up in anew energy and with new understanding.

The sleepiness is broken off her she will see what I see!  They will have My Leadership!  Not the Saul’s of their own choosing, but MY Davidic leaders that will serve My People.  These leaders from Me will fight and work tirelessly in My Kingdom.  They have my faith!  They march at the beat of My Drum! They do not worship the Baal’s and Ashtoreh’s. 

They see like I see like I see with sickness of heart all that is going on in the land.  My people perish for a lack of knowledge, but no more!  They will see because My Spirit has been released to bring revelation and understanding.

We must understand today that many will pass by this divine opportunity to build My temple but years later they will regret their decision to not build with us, the Lord's people.  The rebuilding work will go on in the spirit of perseverance endowed by the Livin God.  
So when we invite our ministry friends in we will know immediately if they are hearing God's clarion call to come up to Jerusalem and rebuild the Lord's temple.  Amen and Amen.

Ezra 1:5

"Then the family heads (clans) of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests(worshipers and intercessors) and Levites (keepers of the ..temple.. of ..God..)--everyone whose heart God had moved--prepared to go up and build the house of the Lord in ....Jerusalem....."

Personal to JK:
We are going to fund the Messianics in ....Israel.... to assist them primarily to spread My kingdom to their countrymen.  We will supply houses and lands as the Lord directs us to aid those who are actually called to operate in the land and in the city of our God!  Our work is a global work but ....Israel.... is the heart throb of our God!  First things First!

Ezra 1:6

"All their neighbors assisted them with articles of silver and gold, withgoods and livestock, and with valuable giftsin addition to all the freewill offerings.

Because I declared this word of proclamation it is coming to pass immediately!  Your assistance is on the way!  It will come from those who know your plight.  They are encouraged by your vision.  They are seeing that the Lord God is with you!

This rebuilding project or restoration work will be established by freewill offerings.   The word of God says in Ps.110:3:

"Your people [shall be] volunteers In the day of Your power; In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth".(NKJV)

Ezra 1:7

"Moreover, King Cyrus brought out the articles belonging to the temple of the Lord, which Nebuchadnezzar had carried away from ....Jerusalem.... and hadplaced in the temple of his god".  

A new order is in place, a new king Cyrus has been appointed by our God togive back what rightly belongs to Our God.  Moved by sovereign decree and irresistible power, Cyrus will give to us, our people, our leadership, and our families that which rightly belongs to them; they are to place these things back into the house of our God.

The spirit of religion and stale worship will be replaced with living and life giving praise, simple, unvarnished, the unhewn stones of God's alter of praise will carry up into the heavenlies, a sweet aroma in the nostrils of our King!

Praise the Lord!  Let every heart be lifted up!  Fling out your banners, for the Lord our God reigns even over pagan leaders.  Even those who have fought My work on the earth.  They all belong to Me, says the Lord!

Fresh ideas and gifted men and women of God will be released from their jailhouses to the serve the living God!  Irresistibly they will be drawn like a magnet to this work of Restoration.  

This is My work, it is miraculous!  All of My people are in My hand.  I am their leader!  I control this work.  Anyone who touches My glory like Uzziah who laid his unsanctified hands on the ark of the covenant, they will be taken out!  Hear me, this work is sacred and holy.

This about My worship.  Do not try to meddle with this mighty work!  Do not add your handiwork to it!  My people keep meddling with My worship.  You will not do this, says the Lord!  For I am preparing My sacrifice as I did with My people there in ....Jerusalem....!  

My work shall increase and any those who dare touch my alter with an unclean hand,; those who are not washed in Me and in My blood, these will be put away and sacrificed, says the Lord.

The fear of My Name will be established on the earth.  The people will see and fear for I AM the I AM, the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega, says the Lord.

The glory of the Lord shone about them on the mount of My transfiguration!  You will begin to understand what My glory is all about.  This is very heavy for you and it will transform your thinking and it will change your ways, says the Lord!

Ezra 1:8-11

"Cyrus king of Persia had them brought by Mithredath the treasurer, whocounted them out to Sheshbazzar the prince of ....Judah..... This was the inventory: 

gold dishes -- 30
silver dishes -- 1,000 
silver pans -- 29 
gold bowls -- 30 
matching silver bowls -- 410 
other articles --1,000.  

In all, there were 5,400 articles of gold and of silverSheshbazzar brought all these along when the exiles came up from ..Babylon.. to ....Jerusalem.....

These articles of God are His chosen people and their ministries and vision.  They will establish their ministries in ....Jerusalem.... as they build out their work on the earth.

My people will share in My Bounty as they take care of My People who are in the Land.  They need My resources, My church, to accomplish what must be accomplished to complete My work on the earth, says the Lord our God!

Let all who hear and receive these words, that these words are of a divine origin, they are not of man.  They come from heaven to earth!  You are not alone, I bought you at a tremendous price!  It is a finished work.  Press On!  Don't delay!  For I Am coming soon, says the Living God --- Jehovah

The end! 

I invite any of you who are apostles and prophets of the Lord to pray over these words to test them to insure that they are of the Lord and their timing is indeed right!

Many blessings,

Jonathan David Keener
