John Lake said this: “I had the faith to believe that the thing God showed me would come to pass, and I lived to see it through.”
St Patrick, St Francis, Joshua, Moses, Deborah..understood that it goes from ABove to below-that’s the Order. When we build from below we join the enemy of God. So identity above preceeds calling below-who you are with Him in Heaven preceeds what you do here on earth. Your authority comes from who you are with Him above…the spiritual order is always spirit is higher than what is below-so soul is lead by spirit-the natural is to submit to the spiritual. True leaders allow Him to move from above down into below.Letting Him build downwards rather than building from down to up. John Lake saw it above before it happened below!
