Citizen Way has a song called Set It on Fire and the chorus begins by saying, “This is the heart reset, this is the 2.0, this is the wave good bye, or is it hello? This is the new me, redeemed, set free, your love has sparked my heart and set it on fire!”
Haggai 2:9 says it this way, “The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house, says the Lord Almighty. And in this place, I will grant peace, declares the Lord Almighty” (NIV).
Can you feel it? Do you recognize the change that has taken place? We have entered a new era, we have stepped into a new day. The mercy of God did it at the start of the Roman calendar 2018, the shift has been obvious to many. Prophets are prophesying shift and new all over Facebook and in pulpits around the globe. Yes, it is a new year, but this year is different, because we entered a new era. The past era was a time of mourning, but this era is about rejoicing. Something has shifted and I believe we have entered the land of the 2.0. You know the ministry you did before, then something happened and it never fulfilled its purpose? You know the person you were before, but you went through some major renovations over the past how many years and now something is new? This is the 2.0!
I know personally something has changed dramatically, it was like when the clock struck midnight and we were all in 2018, something in the spirit changed. I can’t put words to it, but I get text messages saying, this happened at church today, I am sensing this, what is going on? It is everywhere and this is not a new year’s resolution, this is a God revolution. This is the 2.0!
One thing I know, is that on Friday January 5, 2017 at 9am, the Lord spoke to me while in prayer and said, “Menorah Multiplying Mantle”. I could sense in the spirit this is what we will be wearing and multiplying in the 2.0, but what is a menorah multiplying mantle, that I did not know, but what I have learned so far, is that this mantle, which is like a King or Queen’s robe, is an important role of responsibility that symbolizes authority and people will see those who are wearing it. Not only will they see it, they will be able to wear one themselves if they want to.
The menorah is a 7 lamp, 6 branch pure gold lampstand, that would only be filled with pure olive oil and was only to be used in the tabernacle. The menorah was displayed as a war trophy and symbolizes revelation and wisdom. Remember Paul prayed in Ephesians 1:17 that God would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation. I believe this is the menorah multiplying mantle that we are going to wear. We are going to see in the 2.0 tabernacle, those who are wearing the menorah multiplying mantle. They will be ones who have the spirit of wisdom and revelation. The truth they will release will be pure and unadulterated. They will not care who gets the credit, as long as God gets the glory.
The multiplication will represent the resulting operation of exponentiation. We have heard about Bob Jones’ prophecy of the billion-soul harvest, well it will be seen because of this menorah multiplying mantle. Those wearing this mantle will be so full of light, that others will want to be light in the same way and as more and more people in the tabernacle get lit on fire with the pure olive oil of the Holy Spirit and the presence of God, it will multiply. Discipleship will be organic because hungry people will always find out where the food is. Remember, Jesus said, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you at the loaves and had your fill (John 6:26). People are hungry for the pure truth of the word of God and purity is going to break the power of pluralism.
We are living in a new era, a new day, there is no going back. What we honor we empower, so it is time to honor the word of God in our lives, honor the Holy Spirit and honor the Father of glory. Things are going to accelerate now, because the Father has released a menorah multiplying mantle upon his mature sons and daughters for the sake of multiplying the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the earth for the saving of lives. This is the 2.0!
