127. Relationship and Responsibility

Mike Parsons
with Jeremy Westcott

butterfly-970170_640On this blog we are just at the beginning of a new series of posts about preparing for our destiny.

We prepare according to God’s Prophetic Timetable of events for the future, so that we will be ready for what he is doing and ready to play our part in it. From a place of intimacy with God, we will allow Him to change and transform our lives, removing from us everything that is a hindrance or a stumbling-block.

Prophetic Timetable

He is raising up a Joshua generation who will press into their own inheritance, and lead the following generation into receiving theirs too. We need to receive that inheritance so that in the situations we will face in the coming days and years, when the world’s systems have broken down, we will be ready with the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit operating in our lives. We must be like Jesus: He brought the kingdom, and He calls us to do the same.

From eternity, God has a destiny appointed for us to fulfil, and we have been invested with authority to fulfil it. We need to wake up and take hold of who we are as the sons of God

Man’s destiny has always been to rule, to bring heaven to earth (Gen 1:28). We bring the rule of heaven to earth so that we transform not just this planet but the whole of creation – our universe and even beyond that – which is groaning and longing for the sons of God to be fully revealed.

Psalm 24:7 says ‘Lift up your heads, O you gates’. It is talking about us being lifted up to that place of rulership and authority, so that we become a gateway for the King of Glory to come in and fill this world through our lives. That is what God wants to do through us: everything He is, grace, power, mercy, would be channelled through us, and that we would manifest them here on earth.

The Angel of the Lord admonished Joshua, the High Priest, who was standing in the presence of God in the heavens and said,

“If you will walk in My ways
and if you will perform My service,
then you will also govern My house
and also have charge of My courts,
and I will grant you free access
among these who are standing here”

(Zechariah 3:6-7).

This involves a progression of relationship and of levels of authority and responsibility that would bring us to our sonship.

We live here on the earth, with the atmosphere of the earth around us. In that atmosphere at present are the principalities, powers and rulers of wickedness. It is a kingdom in darkness. We ‘walk in His ways’ here, and we recognise that the kingdom of God is within us, but that we are also connected to the kingdom of God realm in the heavens.

As we keep the laws, the principles of the kingdom, as we administer righteousness and justice, so we learn to be lords, kings, and sons at that level in the heavenly realms (and also within us). Once we understand who we are and what our identity is, we can start ruling the house (our own house, but also the house of the Lord).

Then we can start judging the courts. The kingdom has foundations of righteousness, and justice, and it is God’s people who are eventually going to judge angels, and fallen angels. We have a right to bring judgment to change things in this realm, and eventually to have access to stand among those who are operating in the heaven of heavens.

When we start doing that, we remove those hierarchical authorities from the atmosphere of the earth, and we can rule. We rule in light, rule in love, rule in righteous power. The influence we have in the heavens will be manifested here on earth. God wants us to understand and to access those realms. The more we do so, the more we will bring the kingdom of God on the earth, both in us and through us, so that we shine with the glory of God.

That will deal with sickness, disease, poverty – all the things the enemy has done to rob God’s people (and the world) of their inheritance, and all that stolen inheritance will be restored.

We will manifest the rule of heaven on earth, just as Jesus did.

  23. I have listened to several conferences. In which Ian Clayton has spoken about these same exact subject with much of the same verbiage and the same scriptures. Do you have relationship with him and is your teaching flowing from what you have learned from him or is this your own personal revelation?
    Thanks,
    Rob

    • Hi Rob, thank you for your question, please excuse us if I answer on Mike’s behalf.

      Mike makes a point of never teaching anything on this subject which does not come from his own experience. He first began experiencing the realms of heaven over three years ago, and as he began to look for others who had had similar experiences, he came across Ian Clayton’s ministry. Ian has subsequently done two conferences for us here at Freedom. Mike and Ian have had quite a few conversations and discussions, and it is only to be expected that Mike will use some of the same vocabulary and use the same scriptures.

      So it is not really either/or. The content of this blog comes from Mike’s own experience: he is not merely re-hashing Ian’s material, though he does use some of Ian’s diagrams (with Ian’s permission) and generally concurs with Ian’s explanations. He also provides a framework for understanding God’s purpose in all of this (the two paths of Relationship and Responsibility, which this post introduces for the first time in written form) which people do not necessarily pick up from Ian or from others who teach on this.

      I have been privileged to be part of a body of believers at Freedom who have followed Mike through much of the process, and as a result many of us have begun to experience these things for ourselves too. Which is what led me two years ago to begin this blog and bring Mike’s teaching to a wider audience, in the hope that yet others would begin to engage God in this way for themselves.

      I hope that is helpful for you and answers your question.

      Every blessing,

      Jeremy.
