To complete our mission as the “House of Prayer for All Nations,” the global culture of prayer must reconnect to an ancient word — the word Jesus promised to build. Do we even know what it is?
Community. Authority. Governmental Intercession
For generations, we have been taught that Jesus promised to build His “church“ in Matthew 16:18, so we’ve dutifully tried to build the church with Him. But there’s a big problem: that’s not the word He used. Instead, He announced something far more potent:
“I will build My ekklesia!”
Have you ever wondered why the established church culture so often seems stuck in neutral? If Jesus gave His disciples authority and keys to bind and loose, why are so many churches either apathetic or chronically weak in prayer? The reason is because a motherlode of identity and mission separates those two words. In Ekklesia Rising, you’ll learn:
- The DNA of ekklesia: how revelation produces dominion
- The “keys” Christ gives, and how to receive and use them
- Divine design: masculine authority with bridal love
- The role of the Divine Council in heaven and on earth
- The inner constitution of contending, covenantal communities
Make no mistake, Jesus will build His ekklesia. His Father’s house will be a “House of Prayer for All Nations.” For hundreds of years, we have been the church. The time has come to become His ruling ekklesia.
“In Ekklesia Rising, Dean Briggs offers hard-hitting, brilliant exposition to uncover the true meaning of what Jesus said He would build, along with challenging questions as to whether we have veered off course. Is our current church mindset sufficient for the binding, loosing and war which Jesus unleashed that fateful day?” — Lou Engle
Ekklesia Rising is less a book about spiritual warfare, and more a book about divine government. It is less a book about prayer, and more a book about paradigm. However, since a primary role of any nation’s government is to declare war should that nation be threatened or attacked, and since prayer is central to any human/divine transaction, especially in the conflict between good and evil, this is also a book about prayer and spiritual warfare.
Get this: Jesus the lamb and human Son of God, brings salvation in mercy and grace. But Jesus, as the Christ, brings the government of God to the earth.
At present, gates of death cover the earth, but the final, total, visible rulership of Jesus over planet Earth means there is a “a long-range plan in which everything would be brought together and summed up in Him” (Eph. 1:10, MSG). When Scripture culminates with John’s mind-bending “Revelation of Jesus Christ,” it is not merely some bizarre map of past and future events, but rather it is entirely about the rule and reign of Jesus.
Are we consumed with this? If not, why not? Do you have any idea the authority in prayer which Jesus delegated to his ekklesia? Or do you wrongly assume that the rule of Christ is predestined with no involvement from us? If so, this book will change your mind.
