The Vision For The School Of Prophets

This morning I brought a message titled “The Vision For The School Of Prophets” at Shiloh, Kalona, Iowa.

John Robert Stevens gave us a vision for the school of prophets: a company of prophets who would travel the land and bind the principalities and powers that rule each locality and transfer the land and its people into God’s dominion. After the Exodus, Israel was the only nation on the earth that was directly under God’s rule, but because of their sin, God decided to remove them from His direct rule and place them under a lesser authority, just as He did with Adam and Eve.

As God works within the hierarchical structure of beings He has put in place, He rules through other gods to whom He has delegated authority. But in their rebellion, many of these rulers have become the principalities and powers that the New Testament declares are to be judged. They must be bound or the hearts of people will remain blinded to the revelation of Christ (II Corinthians 4:4). This is the vision for the school of prophets: to bind the powers of darkness that have lordship over the earth and transfer it into the dominion of God. We ask, that by His grace, we become His true sons, in submission to His Lordship, able to fulfill the vision for the school of prophets
