I’ve had Isaiah 27:1 land on my radar of late. I feel this year we will see the Lord release His WORD (His unrelenting sharp sword) and punish Leviathan, the LIAR that twists. Through the sword of His TRUTH He will expose LEAVEN in the House of God, which are the demonic doctrines of this age that lift themselves up against the knowledge of God.
Isaiah 27:1 AMPC
”IN THAT day [the Lord will deliver Israel from her enemies and also from the rebel powers of evil and darkness] His sharp and unrelenting, great, and strong sword will visit and punish Leviathan the swiftly fleeing serpent, Leviathan the twisting and winding serpent; and He will slay the monster that is in the sea.“
When the word of God comes it comes like Fire and it will expose all that cannot endure the test. (Jeremiah 23:29) The enemy has sown tares of leaven in the House of God. It has come via many channels and mouthpieces. Anti Christ, Religion, Perverse Jezebel Spirit, and a Political spirit.
THE LEAVEN OF A POLITICAL SPIRIT
A political spirit promotes political correctness with the assignment to keep the church babies.
This spirit ensnare leaders whose hearts are bound by the fear of man to toe the line to a message of compromise and flesh gratification so the believer can only tolerate milk. Paul addresses this in 1 Corinthians 3.
Leaven is any teaching that promotes the works of the flesh. It “puffs” up. It leads you outside of faith, into sense and reason and partner with the wisdom of this age. Faith however requires you to trust and believe God and not lean on your own understanding.
Mature teaching is a word that exhorts us to eat MEAT and our MEAT is to do the WILL OF OUR FATHER. This will always require us to deny ourselves.
Systems of man and performance culture do not require faith.
LEAVEN IS PRIDE
The SWORD of the Lord is coming to His house in this hour and it is separating between that which is of the spirit and flesh. That means what is of the spirit of truth and what is a counterfeit lie.
Sometimes we think we are believing all these grandeur spiritual revelations but they are just a counterfeit. It is tares of leaven. It once looked like wheat, it sounded like wheat, it had the language of wheat, but when the day of harvest comes it’s revealed as a fake. THIS IS THAT DAY.
Tares stand tall in pride and resistance because it’s not made of the same substance as wheat that bows at harvest. The bowing represents humility which reveals the origin and genuineness of the grain. Likewise the posture of a tare reveals its origin – the father of lies. Matthew 13 tells us it is the devil himself who sows the tares.
So whatever in the heart that will not bow and submit to the truth of God’s unadulterated word must be uprooted and thrown in the fire.
His word is coming like fire in this hour and it will test what you believe and what cannot endure the test will be shaken to be burned with fire.
What we believe will be tested, what our identity has clung to will be tested, MIXTURE in the heart is being revealed by fire, the leaven of malice and wickedness in the heart will have nowhere to hide in this day of testing.
1 Corinthians 5:8 AMPC
”Therefore, let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with leaven of vice and malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened [bread] of purity (nobility, honor) and sincerity and [unadulterated] truth.
LEAVEN ADDS TO THE WORD AND WATERS DOWN
We are to hold fast to unadulterated truth. Not ideas that water down and compromise the truth of His word or ADD to His word for that matter.
Many New Age doctrines that sound right and have grandeur spiritual connotations but are filled with leaven are leading people to believe wacky off the wall stuff that has it’s only purpose in dividing many from the rest of the body in a high minded spiritual aloofness.
If your “revelations” cause you to think you are elite, better than, and more insightful than the rest (meanwhile tagging the word forerunners onto it only it being laced with pride), then this is nothing more than LEAVEN.
Because the NATURE and the FRUIT of LEAVEN is PRIDE.
Pride separates and that is why the nature of Leviathan separates. He is the king of the children of pride. This means pride has many manifestations and faces.
”He beholdeth all high things: He is a king over all the children of pride.“
James 4 says to cleanse our hearts of our spiritual adultery. Spiritual adultery is unbelief.
A question is asked in Malachi 3:2
Who can endure the day of His coming? He sits as a refiners fire and fullers soap.
Who would have thought the word endure would be used to describe Jesus’ coming. Endure means to remain and abide.
Don’t run from this fire, surrender to the fire even if you feel everything that can be shaken is being shaken. Just know Hebrew’s 12:27 reveals that this shaking is in fact His fire.
His fire burns up his enemies. Your enemies are His enemies. Let the fire of God deal with the enemies of your heart that hinder the faith required to be victorious.
