These consecrated messengers will cause the Bride of Messiah to be purified and set apart in preparation for the Bridegroom.
By Wayland Henderson
The Lord revealed to me that He is releasing messengers from His Presence that have been consecrated and prepared to bring a holy fire that will bring His people into a greater revelation of Jesus the Messiah. These consecrated messengers will cause the Bride of Messiah to be purified and set apart and preparation for the Bridegroom.
4 When you read this you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ.
5 [This mystery] was never disclosed to human beings in past generations as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles (consecrated messengers) and prophets by the [Holy] Spirit.
6[It is this:] that the Gentiles are now to be fellow heirs [with the Jews], members of the same body and joint partakers [sharing] in the same divine promise in Christ through [their acceptance of] the glad tidings. (Amplified Classic).
In this letter to the Ephesians, Paul as an apostle to the Gentiles is explaining that his assignment as a steward of the mysteries of God (Ephesians 3:2;1 Corinthians 4:1) is to pull out the hidden treasures or mysteries of the God and of Messiah that was available not only to the Jews, but to the Gentiles as well. One of the powerful truths regarding the mystery of Messiah was that through the blood of Jesus, the Jews and Gentiles are part of the same body of Messiah (Ephesians 2:14). What I find astonishing is how he describes the apostles. He calls them holy “consecrated messengers”. The conjunction “and” can also connect holy apostles and prophets, but the point is holy means to be set apart, consecrated and pure.
Not only are the apostles set apart and consecrated to bring the revelation of Jesus, the message they bring is a message of purity and holiness that will separate us from unclean things. The foundational message that these holy consecrated messengers are bringing is birthed out of intimacy with Jesus and will lay a foundation of truth, ushering in separation from unholy and unclean things so that The Bride of Messiah, His body in the earth, can be consecrated to be His Holy habitation.
To look at the function of holiness is to understand a holy message will get into every dwelling place in our hearts and bring purity so we become set apart a fit to carry His glory. A message of holiness will bring conviction and the power to pull us out of unclean living and set us into holy union of Messiah. Holy messages from consecrated messengers will convict us of our sin, convince us His way is much better than ours, and empower us to walk in His ways. Holy messengers release the fiery language of God that burns up our idols and false images of Jesus and how the body of Messiah is supposed to look, while unveiling the true revelation of Jesus and His Body that ignites a holy fire that will compel us to sell all for this pearl of great price!
I remember teaching a message for the first time some years ago and every time I taught it, demons began to manifest during the message (not claiming to be anything but a son of God)! We had to have buckets and plastic on the floor in the sanctuary because this consecrated message was driving out unclean things in God’s people because it was holy. The Lord told me then that we will come into a time when that will become the new normal, and His consecrated messengers will begin to come on the scene. I first released that message in 2008, and I was not even released to preach that message again until the end of last year (2017), which is an indication we are coming into the season of consecrated messengers.
Set Apart and Consecrated to Understand His Language
When Jesus spoke to the crowds he spoke in parables, yet when He was with His disciples He explained the meaning (Matthew 13:35) fulfilling Psalms 78:2:
2 I will open my mouth in a parable (in instruction by numerous examples); I will utter dark sayings of old [that hide important truth]—(Amplified).
The Hebrew word for “dark sayings” is “chiydah” which means a riddle that divides the hearer from the listener and the riddle ends with the answer uniting the two. In the earliest ancient Hebrew language, each Hebrew letter has a picture that describes its meaning (Ancient Hebrew Lexicon Dictionary). The parent root to “chiydah” are two the Hebrew letters “chet” which has a pictograph or picture of a wall and the letter “dalet” which has a picture of a door. When we put these letters together it is defined as a “wall door”. According to the Ancient Hebrew Dictionary, the “wall” separates but finding the answer brings us through the door (Jesus is the door John 10:7) uniting the two that were separated. What does this have to do with holy? The Hebrew word for holy is “quodesh” and derives from this very root of “wall door” and it means separating and joining to something! We can see the beauty of this definition of “holiness” and the message of the apostles unveiling the mystery of Messiah in this verse as it relates to Jesus:
10 Then the disciples came to Him and said, why do You speak to them in PARABLES (my emphasis)?
11 And He replied to them, To you it has been given to know (intimacy; my emphasis) the SECRETS AND MYSTERIES (my emphasis) of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.
The holy message of consecrated messengers will bring a distinction between those who are His intimate disciples, and those who are following Him with ulterior motives. Within the hearts of disciples, the holy message of consecrated messengers will separate them from unclean things and join them in greater union with the Holy Messiah.
May the Lord send holy, set apart and consecrated messengers from the heart of the Father to bring a holy message that will purify God’s people and pull them out of unclean things and bring them into a greater union with Jesus.
