THE LOVER, THE WARRIOR AND THE KING- LANCE WALLNAU
The Lover, The Warrior and The King!
The Solution To The World’s Crisis Is Hidden—In God’s People! LINK
God loves to use the frailty of faith-filled obedience to humble principalities and powers. He loves to use the things the world sees as weak. He wants to display what He is capable of through the agreement of His people. He called Moses, an old man with a stutter and a stick, and David, the runt of the family litter.
God delights to take people from the isolation on the periphery to a place of unexpected preeminence. God says, “It’s not about the size of who you are, it’s about who I AM and who I choose.” Your anointing has elasticity and is meant to increase over you and your environment as needed. Walk in the Spirit and the call of God will take you to the place of your ultimate assignment. The enemy cannot stop you.
Some people are pure lovers. They hate conflict. Others are pure warriors and constantly agitated with the activity of the enemy. Some are natural rulers. They focus on only those things relevant to their own enterprise. David was a strange combination, a Psalm-singing romantic, a Philistine slaying machine, and a king who unified Israel.
What happens when you combine these three in you? The convergence of these three streams is what made David a unique "type of Christ"—Jesus, the son of David. We need to recognize how these three streams are meant to flow together to strategically enlarge you and ultimately lead you to access “the key of David”!
What is the “key of David?” It is referenced in Revelation 3:7, “To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: these are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David.”
The Old Testament refers to this in Isaiah 22:22 where a Prophet tells a palace official that he will be replaced by another. He said God “will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David.” The key implies authority. It speaks of control of David’s domain as promised to the Messiah. Jesus has been promised something: “Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession" (Psalm 2:8).
The End Time church is found in the blueprint not of Solomon's majestic temple, but rather the “tabernacle of David.”
What does this tabernacle look like? How is the Lord working in you to make you into a David?
1. The Lover: Lovers are fervent in their quest for Jesus and worship intimately in the bridal stream. They are devoted to the Lord with a desire to be in the presence of Jesus. This stream is often disengaged from the battle.
2. The Warrior: Prophetic warriors have unwavering courage to dismantle the gates of hell. They know how to pray with strength and might and are watchmen at the wall. The Warrior stands for truth and courageously fights to uphold kingdom values. These are the reformers in society.
3. The King: Kings know how to be statesmen and have the wisdom to choose what battles to fight. They know when and how to speak! When they speak, they do so with arguments of the spirit that the enemy cannot stop. As decision-makers and influence shapers, they have authority over demons in the territory they are called to occupy.
These three streams form a picture of a glorious End Time Church.
David had a key of intimacy that unlocked something. He accessed the future! His Tabernacle was a place of direct access to God and His throne—in an atmosphere of prophetic worship. David modeled an intimacy that could access the powers of the age to come, and bring that into the age that is now! There isn’t a problem on earth that heaven cannot solve. Will we be the generation that displays the glory of God?
Question: The “key of David” rests on the those who are Lovers, Warriors and Kings. Are you feeling the call to expand?
