A Prophetic Word to the Church – Do NOT Forfeit Your Destiny!

Mark Virkler's picture

The parallels between Israel forfeiting her destiny and the potential for the Church to forfeit her destiny are striking.


The Church

Israel’s Destiny: “The LORD your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land where you will eat food without scarcity, in which you will not lack anything (Deut. 8:7-10). "A land flowing with milk and honey…” (Ex. 13:5).

Church's Destiny: "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover" (Mk. 16:15,18). "Make disciples of all the nations" (Matt. 28:19,20).

The enemy is weakened: "Do not fear the people of the land, for they will be our prey. Their protection has been removed from them" (Num. 13:30).

The enemy is weakened: "Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, 'All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth'” (Matt. 28:18).

Promise to Israel: "The Lord is WITH us" (Num. 14:8, 9).

Promise to the Church: "I am WITH you always, even to the end of the age" (Matt. 28:20).

Israel’s choice: To believe in the power of the enemy or in the power of Almighty God. "The whole congregation said, 'Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! Or would that we had died in this wilderness!' God said: 'I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. As truly as I live,' saith the LORD, 'as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you’” (Num. 14:27-28). (Destiny forfeited!!!)

Church's choice: To believe for the increase of evil (OR) "The government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace…The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this" (Isa. 9:7). God is pleading with the Church, “Do NOT forfeit your destiny as the nation of Israel did!”

I choose to believe that: God is WITH me. All authority has now been given over to Jesus and Jesus has sent me forth with that authority to manifest the Kingdom on earth. God’s zeal will accomplish the continuous growth of His Kingdom. I am seated with Christ in heavenly places, and have the power to rule and reign with Him (Eph. 2:6). Through prayer and action I release His Kingdom. I am a world-changer.

Jesus said, "Get equipped": "Stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high" (Lk. 24:49).

Christians discipling every aspect of all nations

Since there is no sacred/secular split (Ps. 24:1), every area God calls you to lead in (Deut. 28:12,14) is your ministry area. What is God asking you to fulfill? What area(s) has God called you to lead in? Are you pressing into these areas and not quitting until you have triumphed in Christ Jesus (2 Cor. 2:14)? 

We shall never stop until we win! As the Church says "yes" to their destiny, we shall disciple all nations and God's enemies will become His footstool (Acts 2:35).

Have you ever wished you could just sit down and have a long talk with the Lord? Wouldn't it be wonderful to move beyond having a theology that states that God loves you to actually hearing Him whisper words of love into your heart? When you're worried or confused, wouldn't you love to see the situation from His perspective and hear how He wants you to respond? When things don't seem to be going your way and your prayers aren't answered the way you had hoped, wouldn't it be great to hear Him tell you where He is in the midst of it, and what He is working out in your life?

Twelve Weeks to Spiritual Mastery - Group Coaching

A group coaching experience with Mark Virkler

Because I could not find a Spirit-anointed teacher/coach, I spent ten extremely frustrating years seeking to hear God’s voice!!! Suggestions offered did not help me, things like: “You just know that you know. It is a still small voice. He speaks from your heart.” No one could give me the answer I needed which was: Hearing God’s voice is as simple as quieting yourself down, fixing your eyes on Jesus, recognizing His voice as spontaneous, flowing thoughts and writing down His flow as it is coming. Test what you have written after the flow is done, NOT while it is occurring.

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
