Kingdom Principles for our Journey By Apostle Tim Early

Apostle Dr. Tim Early


We’re on a journey folks, so take out your journal.


It is a vast yet powerful discovery, a marvelous unfolding, and a glorious awakening that will pioneer a bold new pathway. It is a portal of entry, some place in time that we seem to have never gone before, yet shall never be forgotten.


It is new in one sense in that our minds are just catching up to this new positioning and progression of the Spirit, but yet, it is simply the old or Ancient Paths where is the good way, finding rest for the souls. Jeremiah 6:16.

In this wise, it is a pathway that our minds are now becoming transformed to {Romans 12:2}, but yet, deep in the recesses of our spiritual being, we seem to have crossed those paths long before. For in Deuteronomy 29:29, the secret things belong to the Lord, but those things which are revealed belong to us. {Proverbs 25:2}


“There is a path which no fowl knows, and which the vulture’s eye has not seen. [see also 1st Corinthians 2:9-10] The lion’s whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.” (Job 28:7-8).


By the steadfast and unending counsel of the Lord we have come into a place of HIS choosing and design. We may not always like it, and may sometimes exclaim that it is futile and useless. But the journey is not contingent or hinged upon our mere likes and dislikes, nor our outspoken feelings at the moment. God is not committed to our ability or inability; rather, He is committed to our destiny. True responsibility is simply our response to HIS ability. He is able, and he is willing. The question though is, “Are we trusting HIM to take us on the journey?”


Our destiny began in the mind of God, His conception of our perfection, and breathed into an earthly atmosphere, forming from clay the outer shell and earth suit for a pre-determined being, a spirit man, made in the same image and likeness of Elohim. Such image and likeness is the precursor and prelude for dominion, the original mandate or great commissioning of Genesis 1:26-28. It is the stuff which God Himself is made of, giving substance and tangibility to our hope and expectation, breathing and bringing to life in us power to live and not die before we were ever born.


In the journey we discover a great cloud of witnesses, one of which is Abraham. Abraham {or before name and nature change – Abram} who left his father’s house in Genesis 12:1. It was the criterion for becoming a father of many nations. It was the beginning of his 7 separations, the 7th being the offering up of Isaac, that which is closest and dearest to his heart, the very thing that he had once longed for, now required to give up or let go. For that is when the Lord releases from HIS hand unto you and me, when we let go of that which is in our hands. If you want what you never had, do what you have never did. If you want to boldly go where no man has ever gone before, there must be the renunciation of some things, in order to obtain or procure other glorious things. Philippians 3:13-14.


Like Abram or Abraham, we too, must leave from the confines and comforts of normalcy, whatever that is to mean as the Lord is speaking expressly to you. And like Abraham, we go in trust with that proceeding word, as our life’s progression is ever increasing. As Abram left his father’s house, he pursued that which the Lord is the true builder thereof. Even after marriage, and for a brief moment appearing marred {versus married}, he was after something. But remember, whatever you and me are after in the purposes, plans, and pursuits of God is not to be compared to how joyous and eager the Lord is after us. We may apprehend, but we are being apprehended by that which we apprehend. God is after us, in a new and living way.


“If I were HUNGRY, I would not tell you, for the world is Mine, and the fullness thereof.” (Psalms 50:12).


In the process of Abraham and Sarah the promised was yet to be made manifest. There were the conflicting emotions of not witnessing or beholding the promise, and the conjecture of human reasoning to manufacture a simile, something quite like it. Ever been in this place before? Though Abraham endured for many years, the Word eventually became flesh or substance {Isaiah 55:11}. That which was conceptualized now was to become realized. The promise came to pass, and in part and parcel here’s how.


When Abram left his father’s house, and when it appeared that the promise seemed, if you will, delayed and ineffectual, what brought it to pass? Well for one thing, God’s decreed will and purpose from the beginning, and in another respect, Abraham’s obedience to the will and purpose of God for his life. In his old age it looked rather impossible, maybe ridiculous at times, and he might of felt rather incompetent about some things, too, but then, like Abraham, all of the ailments, hindrances, shackles, weights, fetters, and chains {so-to-speak} are broken off, as he stayed on course. The closer we get to our fulfilled promise, or promise made manifest, like Abraham, God invades our time with eternity, and some definite changes within us takes place. Sicknesses, diseases {or dis-ease, no ease, uneasy}, oppression, depression, suppression, and the heat of the “Press” seem to taper off and whisk away as we draw nearer to the fullness of our purpose and destiny.


As the caterpillar is approaching its greatest new discovery of its life into becoming a butterfly it eats about 10 times its weight prior to its transformation. The closer you and me are to the fullness of the promise made manifest, that one thing that we have lived for, yet worth dying for, then mortal puts on immortality, a change of nature begins, in the moment, in the twinkling of an eye we are changed, our focus, our perception, and the light of the body which is in the eye. As we feed from the heritage of Jacob in Isaiah 58:14, we ride upon the high places of the earth. The closer we get into the fullness of the promise made manifest, our intensity and hunger for Him marvelously increases. As the door of the Spirit is being opened, as a new portal or path is now to be discovered, just remember, it is not the Lord is merely doing something for us, but something deep within us. 1st Corinthians 15:51-54; Hebrews 12:2.


There is something about continuance in well doing that causes us to reap if we faint not. There is a Kingdom principle here which reveals how Abraham’s and Sarah’s momentary challenge was compensated greatly in part, through their trust, for we move from faith {30-fold}, trust {60-fold}, to rest {100-fold}. The Lord spoke in Genesis 15:1,


“I AM your shield and your exceeding great reward.”


Beloved, you and I may be faced with experiencing the most excruciating painful processes of life and the most difficulty of times, but like Abraham and Sarah, the promise came as they continued their journey. This principle is in comparison to Revelation 12, whereas the woman fled to the WILDerness to her prepared place. And, it is in her placed that she is fed and nourished. Are you in your appointed place and progression? Are you empowering the seed of the Kingdom to speak, or the cares of life to choke out the Word? As Kingdom people we eat the Lamb, sweet to our mouth, and bitter to our bellies, the Lamb that we eat makes war with the beast and the memory of Adam. We eat things conducive to our progression and maturity, for what we are becoming.


Further on, there is a built-in and internal mechanism within trust and obedience, that which releases health, wealth, and personal breakthrough, as we continue the journey. There is a rhythm of miracles that is bursting forth unto full manifestation because we had once gotten up out of our rut {a grave with both ends kicked out} or some death structures to go from where we use to be to the place where the Lord is now leading us into {Romans 4:1-21}. There is given an anointing in the passion and pursuit of fulfilling our destiny {pre-destination or pre-destiny}. There is a cry in the Spirit to continue in well doing. With me, there was the raising of the dead, my life from literal death in 1975 resulting from the stabbing in the abdomen on the streets of Baltimore, Maryland, 1974. Those were my most crucial defining moments, my epiphany, and turning point of discovery. What would appear to be your defining moment{s} in LIFE?


Continuing on it is in purpose and destiny that we are reborn, born fresh and anew, given a bold new start for the finish. It is not alone in the “How To’s,” but in WHOM we know and believe. For in Romans 4:3, Abraham simply BELIEVED God!


And there is a divine resistance to chronos time as we move from …


  • The universal presence of the Lord{30 fold}, [“Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? Saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? Saith the LORD.” (Jeremiah 23:24).]
  • The manifest presence of the Lord {60 fold} [“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was MANIFEST in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” (1st Timothy 3:16).]
  • Into the eternal presence of the Lord {100 fold} where time as we know it, is not at all as ordinary time for it ceases to be {Revelation 1:10}. [“Even the [Holy] Spirit of Truth [Jesus]; Whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” (John 14:17); “To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:27).]


Here it is a place in God where the aging process is momentarily suspended and retarded, so that the God who inhabits eternity {Isaiah 57:15} can speak. If you can receive this, He is taking our kairos and is creating a rhythm of the Spirit where our chronos will ultimately reveal the effectual workings of God daily from the kairos crossover. Meaning, your chronos will manifest your kairos endlessly. Can somebody around here say amen?


It is here, where we move from the Raven’s meal {30 fold}, the Widow’s meal {60 fold} into Angel Food {100 fold}. Note below …


“And as he [Elijah] lay and slept under the Juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat. And he looked, and behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again. And the angel of the Lord came again the second time, and touched him [touched by an angel], and said, Arise and eat; because the journey [road, course of life, mode of action] is too great for you. And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength [read also Isaiah 40:31 – same Hebrew word] of that meat 40 days and 40 nights …” (1st Kings 19:5-8).


What a meal, to walk in the substance and strength therein for 40 days and nights. The number 40 can symbolize a season of testing and trial, and also, another generation {genes, genetics, genius}. Psalms 24:6. Either way, the Lord is preparing you for your journey; you have tasted the good Word, and the powers to come. Hebrews 6:5.


“O, taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the man that trusts in HIM …”


On the journey, there is a dietary modification, a change of eating habits both naturally and spiritually. Now, food is seen as strength, and not indulgence. Food, in the natural, is energy for the journey. And, food, in the spiritual, correlates to where the Lord is taking you. If you want to overstay your time in the outer court, then there will be a shallow diet just for you. If you want to remain only in the holy place when the Lord is preparing you for HIS fullness, then you may potentially be eating duality, one part wanting to go back to the outer court, while another part is interested in the third dimension, the most holy place – that is, if we overstay our time.


O, but thank God for the provision of the Lord that transcends and supercedes time and places … Thank God for a home cooked meal {Angel Food} prepared by the Lord Himself for the JOURNEY.


God both makes and creates. In the Genesis account, He makes from that which already exists, and in the pure meaning of creation, He creates from that which does not appear to exist.


That is why knowledge must become transformation instead of mere information, when creativity is at work.


Creative knowledge is knowledge with a new imagination. It is here, that creativity takes knowledge into different levels and different forms. When God creates, our knowledge of His provision is expanded increasingly, and we see that every thing needed for the JOURNEY is already provided for. Such as with Abraham, who was to offer up the begotten promised seed, and in his mind imagined that his son would rise again {resurrection}. For the Lord is teaching us here that HE is our Source and Resource. He is our provision for every vision and re-vision. In this mount experience of Abraham and his son, the provision of the Lord was clearly seen.


So, we prepare now to continue on the journey. We continue with focus, as the light of the body is in the eye. We move from tunnel vision, to the unlimited vision of the four beasts of Revelation. In Ezekiel, the four living creatures are full of eyes round about, but in the Book of {Revelation} Revolution, they are full of eyes within.


Ah, beloved the vision is getting sharper, things are getting crystal clearer. The journey is wonderful, full of the wonder, splendor, and majesty of the Lord. We are more than just motivated. We are in a divine drive, with an unlimited vision, and all of HIS provision. Our diet {deity} is changing, both naturally and supernaturally. Our meat is to DO the will of the Father. We are boldly going where no carnal mind has ever gone before.


The Lord not only provides us with sustenance, but with the multitude of counsel. He has just what we need in another, as two cannot walk together except they are appointed. Amos 3:3. Is there someone the Lord is appointing you to, or has appointed in your progression?


May the glory of the Resurrected Life become His pure nature to you in every facet of your being, as we shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.


Father in Jesus’ name we acknowledge Your presence and face this day and the glory that You are revealing and manifesting unto your wonderful people. A people that know their God and is strong, doing exploits. We pray in the name of the Lord that a release would come to those who are in dire straits in life and in the name of the ascended Lord and risen Christ, we speak the release of the Kingdom to heal, moving from divine healing {30-fold}, divine health {60-fold} into divine life {100-fold} NOW, unto the praises of the Living God in your matchless name! We speak to the depths of purpose and destiny within your people, a Word of release and divine increase to continue in the journey, and to discover that you are working all things out after the counsel of Your own will in Jesus’ name. That resurrection LIFE would not be a topic and discussion of convenience, but a Life-giving nature to all those that believe and receive in Jesus’ name. Let the resurrection and the life which you are in all of us NOW come forth from within us in unlimited measure, in abundance, yea, in super abundance in Jesus’ name! Peace to your order, peace to the order of God in the saints! Rest for the weary, multiplied grace and magnified glory in your precious name! Amen!
