Spiritual Gilgal

Weekly Sabbath  Survey
Spiritual Gilgal   —  8-3-13
Gilgal was where Joshua made camp with his army after crossing the  Jordan River into the Promise Land. It was his base of operation to carry out  strikes against the various “ites” and take over the land. After the sieges at  Jericho and Ai, the next order of business was to circumcise all men born in the  wilderness when this important rite had not been done. Spiritual Gilgal is a  place in the Lord where we are preparing ourselves for what the Lord may have  for us in the days ahead. We likely remain in the same physical location,  but our spiritual ‘address’ is different than most people around us. We are  the ‘called out ones’, come out of Egypt, finished with the wilderness,  separated unto the Lord. And, we are circumcising our hearts.  We know we  are on The End of Days timeline. God alone knows the exact last  day. We believe it is very near. 
The following trumpet message of warning is  from Clay Sikes, a watchman for the Lord:
What is really happening today spiritually? The depth of what we are  seeing was unimaginable only a few years back. There is a tearing, a clear and  obvious separation and exposure of “flesh” that is being purged from the Body of  Christ individually and corporately. God is preparing a true remnant; men and  women who are dead, yet live only for His cause in the earth.  [Galatians  2:20]
The fires of  affliction have been very hot, as God’s true remnant church is reaching the  final stage of preparation before being released into divine, power-filled, God  ordained destiny. The common thread running throughout this remnant company is  they are not bound by tradition, and they are truly living by  faith.
The dynamics  of being on earth today are perhaps like no other time; as the world’s system is  falling apart at the seams and failing its many suitors.  Ministers and  ministries are being revealed for their true intentions, as true prophetic  ministries (the no-name no-bodies) are finding where they fit with those to  whom they are called. Many big name prophetic ministries are being called into  question as to their true discernment, monetary motive, and less than accurate  prophetic words. Still, many in the Body are blinded by the blight of big  ministries, big ministers, big meetings, and big money.
Yet, I (Clay  Sikes) believe God will use the true prophetic ministry in a big way, but  not through those who call and title themselves as such. There is a movement in  the earth today that you will not see on ‘God TV’, read about on the Elijah  List, nor see on what is commonly called ‘Christian TV.’ This move of God is  coming about in the hearts of men and women as God is directing us to truth and  connecting us with others of like faith. A spiritual DNA is coursing the veins  of those ‘called together’ that recognize this is not in a geographical joining,  but rather a joining in a deep abiding understanding of the times and hour in  which we live.This is unlike any time in the earth as the wheat is surely being  separated from the chaff, the sheep from the wolves, and the Kingdom from the  world’s system.
With this  understanding, think it not a strange thing to see the collapse of the real  estate and financial markets, the exposure of the events of Lakeland,  Florida, and the blatant separation between the ‘sleeping church’ and those  who are awakening. We are sitting in a spiritual Gilgal, awaiting our next  command; and yes, this circumcision is painful, but the journey we are about to  take will make it all ‘worth it.’
Come out from among them and be ye separate says the Lord,  and do not touch the unclean thing; and I will receive you.  And I will be  a Father unto you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord  Almighty.  2 Corinthians 6:17-18  [Revelation 18:4]
