“Will we make the same mistake today?” -David E. Taylor
There is a new move of God upon the scene! This move of God is not a move of the anointing, gifting’s, or 5-fold ministry offices that we have experienced in past moves (although all of that will be in operation.) God is ready to reveal ancient glory that has never seen before in the 21st century! We have seen moves of the apostolic, prophetic, gifts of the Spirit, etc., but this next move of God… is GREATER! It is God personally coming to His people! The Father is coming to meet with His people, face to face, as He did in the days of Moses and Christ!
The Father Has Come Down to Earth to Deliver
And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people…And I am come down to deliver them…Exodus 3:7a,8a
While I was fasting and praying in the church in the year 2006, Jesus appeared to me face to face and began to tell me, “The time has now come that not only I Jesus will manifest myself as I have been doing through your ministry, but now My Father is going to begin coming down on Earth, working with you notably and openly in the eyesight of the American people and the World, like He did with Moses and with Me during my Earthly ministry. This will take place before whole cities regions and nations, starting mainly in America…”
The greatest opportunity of a lifetime is to have the Father and Jesus both come to you! This is why Jesus died on the cross, so you could be reconciled to God.
Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. John 14:23
Face to Face
The Perfect Will of God
Adam enjoyed a face to face relationship with God every day in the Garden. When God created Adam, He literally gave him CPR and Adam became a living soul (Genesis 2:7). The first thing Adam saw when he awoke was the face of God! Adam was a hunk of clay before God breathed into him. When he awoke, he saw the face of Jehovah! God came to fellowship with him every day during early morning time, known as the ‘cool of the day’ (Genesis 3:8, Job 7:8) but when sin came the face to face intimacy he had with God was hindered. Isaiah the prophet said, “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you…” Isaiah 59:2. Sin literally hid the physical face of God from Adam.
The Word of God says, “And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God” (Gen 3:8). I used to read this Scripture verse and think that for Adam and Eve to hear the voice of the LORD walking in the garden was a positive thing. But the Lord said to me, “Do not rejoice in those words.” These are the most tragic words in the Bible.
They heard the ‘voice of the LORD walking.’ There is a revelation in that statement. A voice does not walk. God still came to visit Adam in the cool of the day, but now Adam could no longer see His face, he could only hear His voice. God’s perfect will for man is not to communicate through a prophet, but to speak with man face to face.
Yes, God has and will continue to use prophets to speak to His people – I am not diminishing that truth; but there comes a time when God chooses to speak with His People face to face, and not through a prophet. When He chooses to do this, as He did in the days of Moses and Christ, we must not make the same mistake our Ancient Jewish Fathers made. We must not reject Him! We must not put the prophetic above face to face!
God Calls Israel to Speak with Him Face to Face
Moses saw God’s glory and spoke with Him mouth to mouth (Numbers 12:8) Moses saw the hinder parts of God. When Moses cried out, ‘show me your glory’, God referred to His glory as being His face, saying ‘Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.’ This was not because of God’s position, but because of man’s condition! The church has used this scripture to imply that there is death in God’s face.
Satan has deceived the church for thousands of years to be afraid to see God as if God is saying, ‘I am so powerful that you cannot see me because I will destroy you.’ This is how the church has taught this Scripture and it is wrong. The Lord said to me, ‘David, when I told Moses this, I never meant for it to stay like that.’ We quote this Scripture and know what it says, but not what God meant by what He said.
Many pastors are teaching that you cannot have a face to face relationship with God. They take one Scripture about God’s face and make a doctrine out of it that hinders the church from moving forward. They take what God said, but not what God meant. We have preached what God told Moses like this is how it will always be, that man could never see God because it would kill him. In essence, we are teaching and implying that God is a God of death, and not of life. However, He says, “I am the God of the living and not the dead..” (Mark 12:27)! Why would God command us to seek His face if by doing so, we would be destroyed? (Psalms 27:8, II Chronicles 7:14). God says, “Seek Me and live..” (Amos 5:4)!
We have taken this Scripture out of context and have made a false doctrine out of this one passage. God spoke this passage of Scripture to Moses in the Old Testament, but we are in a New Testament with better promises! Isaiah said that it was our sins that hid God’s face from us, but thanks be to God that He sent Jesus, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29)! Jesus took away our sin by His precious blood, and now we can come back to the face of our Father!
21st Century Religion has tried to destroy our mind towards God. I am here to say that I have seen the Father and I am not dead! I saw the Father, not just in Heaven, not just in the spirit, but also physically, like Moses did in the burning bush, but even greater! I saw the physical features of God and I am not dead! We always hear, ‘no man can come to the Father’ and that is all we hear, but Jesus is the exception! Jesus reconciled us back to God! I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me…(John 14:6)!
Jesus Visiting An Ancient Violation Putting the Prophetic over Receiving God Face to Face!
And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die. And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not. Exodus 20:18-20
God came down on Mt. Sinai before the children of Israel and Moses. They saw Him physically come down! God in essence was saying, ‘this is how I am coming,’ But the Israelites out of fear said, ‘no, we want it this way,’ God came down on earth to speak with His People Himself. However, Israel told Moses, ‘You Speak with us instead of God.’ They put the prophetic, or a prophet, above face to face with God! They had an opportunity to meet with God Himself, but they would rather hear the word of the LORD through a prophet, rather than God Himself! They limited the Holy One of Israel (Psalms 78:41).
My question to this generation is “Do we want God the Way He wants to come, or are we going to limit Him because we want it our way”? There is a grave violation happening in the Body of Christ today. We must not reject face to face as our forefathers did! In the days of Moses, they asked that a prophet to speak with them above God Himself. In the days of Christ, when He was manifest in the flesh face to face (1st Timothy 3:16), they also rejected the face of the Lord (John 1:11).
I see there is a problem on the scene today. In a generation where God and His Son have Divinely decided to visit their people face to face, many are still choosing the prophetic above Them, and are holding on to old wineskins. We have made the church a bunch of ‘prophetic junkies.’ Now, I love prophecy, I am a prophet myself, but there is something greater than the office of the prophet and the prophetic.
God was reestablishing the prophet and the prophetic move in the 90’s and through the early years of 2,000. I am not saying that we have no need for it, but what I am saying is that we have become over obsessed and unbalanced, especially when God is coming in this generation face to face and we are still trying to hold on to an old wineskin! A true prophet will never magnify a word of knowledge or prophecy, but rather magnify God Himself. Face to Face is greater than the prophetic!
A lot of fathers and elders are putting prophets that are immature and childlike on the forefront and letting them lead the church on a national scale. This is a grave violation. They may have accurate gifts, but they do not have accurate depth, width, length, and height in the heart and things of God, and thus cannot lead the church the right way. God will continue to use prophets to speak to His people, but in this generation, He is saying, “I no longer just want to use a prophet to speak with you, I want to come down on Earth and visit with you face to face!’
I refuse to follow outdated prophetic moves. It is not our prophetic gifts or apostolic and prophetic offices that will win the world, these things are important, but the world is still not listening. People need a strong experience with God, not a bunch of preachers screaming and yelling. God is coming to answer the cry of His people, ‘Show us your glory!’.
There is a new wineskin! There is a new word! There is a new glory and move of God and it is FACE TO FACE! We need to get on the right path as the Body of Christ! God has come on earth to lead His people. Every region I go, the Father tells me where He is going to come down to show His glory. We have a multitude of pictures to prove this truth. The Lord told me this has started-off small because He doesn’t want to scare the American people, and eventually His glory will be fully and more evidently seen by all the nations!
The nations will flood to America to see God! CNN, Fox, and other media centers will have their trucks parked outside to film God’s Glory as He manifests Himself and speaks out of the cloud once again as He did in the days of Moses and Christ. This time it will be even greater! The Father is on earth. He is the Latter Rain the Scriptures speak about (James 5:7, Zech 10:1).
Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. Hosea 6:3
Let us fear God and not be high-minded and get caught up in old wineskins, and make the same mistake as past generations. Again, my question is, will you make the same mistake and violation our fathers made on earth and reject face to face, or are you a part of the Generation that says, “Thy Face, LORD, I will seek”!
This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. Psalms 24:6
When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. Psalms 27:8
