HE BREAKS US OUT
God's people can trust in His ability to lead them because of two specific characteristics He possesses:

1. The Breaker is a king with kingdom authority. The Breaker is both King and Lord. A king is one who has sovereign power over a designated kingdom.

The Breaker has all authority to enter into every other kingdom and nation and begin to break us out of those kingdoms' rule and into a place of freedom and liberty, life and inheritance. He not only breaks us out of the imprisoning kingdom, He also establishes a new kingdom in its place. He is the King of kings (see Col. 1:16).

2. The Breaker is a covenant maker and a covenant keeper. God is Jehovah in the Hebrew, which means "covenant-keeper." The one who goes before us is reigning over the kingdoms of heaven and Earth, as well as making a covenant with us.

Another word for "covenant" is "testament." Therefore, the Bible can be thought of as the Old and New Covenants. It is the written agreement of God on our behalf.

God as Jehovah is at the head. He is the God whose Word is true.

A covenant is also a promise. Our expectation, framed by this covenant, causes us to press into God, enter His presence, and receive the assurance we need to arise and then act, knowing God will go before us and open up the way (see Heb. 6:17-20).

The church is the body of Christ, which on Earth will possess the kingdoms of this world as co-laborers and joint-heirs with Christ, the head. We need a revelation of God the Breaker to possess what is before us.

I believe the most critical manifestation of God necessary in the apostolic church is that of God as the Breaker. In fact, the breaker anointing is the core anointing of the apostolic church for advancement.

The first sentence of Micah 2:13 says: "'The breaker goes up before them; they break out, pass through the gate and go out by it'" (NASB). What does it mean to break through or out of something?

The Hebrew word parats means "to break out, to burst out, to grow, to increase, to be opened." The implication is that something has been closed off, shut up, diminished, stunted, restricted or confined. Parats has to do with breaking out of a prisonlike structure, growing or increasing in any area or opening that has been previously shut up.

First Samuel 3:1 provides us with an example of breaking through. This passage deals with the transition from an old system to a new one.

Because of compromise on the part of the high priest, Eli, revelation had been shut up. The second part of this verse says: "And the word of the Lord was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation" (NKJV).

The Hebrew word for "widespread" is parats--the same word for "break out." The implication is that something has to be broken through for revelation to be released. Yet there was no breakthrough revelation--no revelation to break the Israelites out of where they were. They were stuck.

Sometimes the thing holding us back is our failure to perceive spiritually. We have no revelation.

One of the words for "hardness of heart" in Greek is sklerokardia, which means "destitute of spiritual perception." Our natural-mindedness must be broken through for revelation to be released.

Without that breakthrough, our minds are darkened. This is also true for those who have not been born again (see 2 Cor. 4:3-4). Spiritual breakthrough and revelation are essential to the effective opening up of unreached geographic areas of the world in order to proclaim the gospel and advance the kingdom of God.

HE EXPANDS OUR TERRITORY
Isaiah 54:3 translates parats as "expand." It reads: "'For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited.'"

This is a day of breaking out into increase and enlargement and breaking into the inheritance that is ours. Breaking out of old mind-sets will be necessary in order for us to break into the revelation of what is to be ours in this season.

For some, there is a need to break out of physical barrenness. There is an anointing being released right now for those whose physical, family, financial, creative, emotional and spiritual wombs have been shut up.

This is also the day of the harvest and the turning of cities. The mistake many make is to wait until they feel like the promise is true. We must learn to differentiate between how we feel about something versus what God says.
