The Servant of All – The Lowest Place…

Sitting down, He called the twelve and said to them, “If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.” (Mark 9:35 NASB)

The Lord has shown me clearly that if anyone wants to be great in His Kingdom that he must be the servant of all and the last of all…

I want to share on this…

There are so many views of “false humility” out there…

I want to express what I believe true humility to be…

I personally believe that true humility is contentment with what God has given you…

It is not a continual demand for more – but a contentment with what He is doing in your life…

I will explain…

I experience the Holy Spirit flowing through me – more and more and more than I ever used to…

He gives His Spirit without measure…

This is normal for someone who is surrendered to the Lord…

This is what He promises us that He will do…

This is a normal result of surrender – lining ourselves up voluntarily under Him…

Surrender isn’t some aestheticism where you sit in your room all day trying to think only about the Lord and not about yourself…

Surrender is saying, “Live through me, I surrender to You”…

Letting the Lord live through us…

And it’s not watching the results – not keeping a close eye on how God is doing with your life – just to “keep Him on track”…

It is letting go of introspection – which cuts out the condemnation the enemy throws at us – and surrendering to Him…

He is the One – the Holy Spirit – who lifts up our head to be able to look at Jesus…

God’s Purpose for each of His children on earth is to take this “lowest Place”…

I say, “lowest Place” because the Place is so special as it was where Jesus walked…

Jesus wasn’t keeping a close eye on Himself, He was keeping a close eye on the Father and did everything in the Power of the Holy Spirit…

None of us can focus ourselves on Jesus – only He can do that – so we should stop trying…

We should welcome the Presence of God to come near us and see what happens…

He will enable us to take this “lowest Place” and offer ourselves to intercede for the world…

It is the world which He loves – even the rebellious who don’t want to know Him – He loves them…

He wants to come from underneath and lift them up…

Whoever has the “lowest Place” has the most power…

The most power with God…

I don’t believe there is just one “lowest Place” which we’re all “fighting for” to “possess”…

I believe there is just one “lowest Place” which He wants us all to find ourselves in together… 🙂

This is not a competition to fight for the “lowest Place” – the title, “Servant of all” (and the word used in the Greek is Diakonos and not Doulos for those who are interested)…

The Lord has asked me to take this “lowest Place” and I have said, “Yes”…

He did this…

I did not do this to myself…

There are thousands of others around the world who He is raising up to take this “lowest Place” with me and I believe with all my heart that by the time this generation is complete that every single believer on earth will be in this “lowest Place” together…

The place of servant hood and submission…

This is what it means to be perfect (not sinless perfection – which is an individual pursuit and a “chasing after the wind” based on pride) and mature and to be complete in Him…

Practically complete…

What does this look like?

The Lord gave me an experience from late 2011 to yesterday morning where He placed one person, the poster V, on my heart…

This really rocked my world…

Why would God do this?

What was going on?

I was asking God all sorts of questions…

I was concerned, I was worried, this had never happened to me for so long and so intensely…

It was like I had her on my heart and she wouldn’t go away…

I got to a place where I loved her more than I loved myself…

I wanted her to be fulfilled more than I wanted myself to be fulfilled…

I offered the Lord everything I had for her to be walking in the freedom which He bought for her…

I literally laid down my life for her…

This was a major challenge for me…

I became her brother, I became her friend and I also offered myself to the Lord to be her father in any way that would be helpful to her…

I guess I was standing in the gap – being Him to her on earth…

Yesterday morning everything changed…

“I will not be denied”…

I had an experience the night before yesterday morning where the words, “I will not be denied” came out of me in prayer…

They came out twice…

I’d never experienced that before…

They came out from a deep place in my heart – so deep…

And I knew that I had what I had asked of God…

Why did I know?

Because I laid down my life for V and her husband (and their family under them), that they would be established in their call… their call for God…

God couldn’t deny me as I’d taken the “lowest Place”…

He couldn’t deny me and I saw that – and it was a place of Power with God…

Power with God…

And then as I biked in to work yesterday morning He said to me that He wanted me to offer myself to everyone in the world in the same way that I’d offered myself to V – to love everyone equally…

Equally…

No favourites…

Doesn’t matter what they do to us, what they look like, how they treat us, but to offer ourselves equally to them for their greatest fulfilment in the Purposes of God…

The Purposes of God for a life are all that matter…

This is not human compassion this is bringing people into their destiny in God…

Holding them up before the Throne…

V was a test case for what He wanted to establish in me – an uncomfortable test case for me…

And yet He showed me that V wasn’t an assignment – like a project – which you complete and then move on – I tried to treat her like that at one point but it just didn’t work…

She had to be in my heart – as the Apostle Paul says, “we have you in our hearts”…

And He showed me that I could never let her go – I had to hold her forever…

And now He’s telling me that I need to do this with everyone in the world…

This is what Jesus experienced when He was on earth – He is the Great Intercessor…

No one can snatch us out of His Hand and no one can snatch us out of the Father’s Hand – I have experienced this now personally – with what He showed me to do with V…

He came to seek and to save that which was lost…

And I have given myself to hold up the world before Him – to have them in my heart (He’s been saying this to me for quite a while now as I look back, I am so “thick” sometimes – this is my call) – and offer them up to Him for His Purpose in their lives to be fulfilled…

I am not alone in this – we are in this together – it is our reason for being on this planet…

To disciple all the nations…

To baptise all the nations in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit and to teach all the nations to observe everything which Jesus has commanded/commissioned us to observe…

This is our call, this is our destiny, this can only be attained from the “lowest Place”…

There is power in prayer – more power in prayer than actually going physically all round the world – as we release the angels to minister salvation in the dreams and revelations which people get by our prayers… Yes, we will physically go all around the world but we will go praying…

Who wants to join me on this journey?  This journey to the Heart of God…

Where does Jesus spend His days?

On the glassy sea (I imagine it like a polished concrete floor) on His knees interceding for us…

He always lives to make intercession for us…

Scripture tells us…

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith…

How do we do this?

We offer ourselves to Him for Him to live through us by His Holy Spirit, taking this “lowest Place” where we are at His disposal to lay our lives down for the world – maybe one person at a time – maybe one city at a time – maybe one nation at a time – but we – in unity – as His Body on the polished concrete floor of heaven so to speak – kneeling with Jesus in the “lowest Place” and crying, “Our Father, who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your Name, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”…

I cannot be happy until the entire world is saved and worshipping Jesus in my lifetime…

That is the commission He has given me…

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my late-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Technical Director - Design, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew

    I’m trying not to be a ‘test case’…

    Just came on here after too much to mention… with a word too precious to say now…

    • I am sorry V if I have offended you in any way in what I have shared above, I love you, You know that, but you are no different to me than anyone else in the world, in that the Father loves all equally – yes He has chosen some for salvation – but He loves all equally and so must I, I love you my sister but I must expend myself for all in the world, I will always love you (I will not love you any less) but now I must love them also (the same as I love you – to the same extent), And by His Grace I will (yes, I will)… Because of you and what you have shown me I can now love them (and am already loving them – I’ve been experiencing it this morning and it is flowing)… 🙂 I love you my sister, Be a blessing wherever you are, you have blessed me… 🙂 Love in the Lord, Andrew

    I’m sorry for listening to rejection Andrew. Please forgive me.

  3. Who wants to join me on this journey? This journey to the Heart of God…

    Any takers?

    • God bless you sister, That has brought such joy to my heart, Love you sister and may you experience such blessing in your life that you will not be able to contain it, May you be blessed in your going out and in your coming in and may everything that you put your hand to be blessed of the Lord and multiplied so that you have more to give to everyone who comes in contact with you seeking Jesus, Love you sister, you are very precious to me and to the Lord – He sees your sacrifice, He sees your heart and He is very pleased…

      Praise You Jesus, Worship You Lord…

      More Lord, we want more Lord – more who will surrender themselves completely to “sell out” for You and for Your purposes in this world…

      Praise You Jesus…

      Worship You Lord…

      Bless V in abundance… 🙂

      Love You Lord… 🙂

  4. As I mentioned on the “Personal Prophetic Word” thread, I sensed as I went to the supermarket again tonight to get more milk that there are more of us around the world who have taken this position in “the lowest Place” – many more – and I now pray Father that they would find us here…

    Bring them here Father to fellowship with You in this “lowest Place” – that was why this blogsite was started – You wanted Intercessors from all around the world to seek You in unity – seeking Your Face to hear what You have in store for this – final – generation before You come again to reign from Jerusalem…

    So call them in Father – from all around the world call them in – give them unity with our hearts – and give us unity with theirs…

    In Jesus Name… Bring them in…

    Praise You Jesus – and let us worship and wait before You in silence – of our hearts – waiting on You together…

    Lead them here Lord and let us all be blessed by the Fellowship but above all be a blessing to You…

    I had an experience today where I started declaring things as I rode along on my bike – I was overtaken with a Zeal for the Holiness of the Lord – a Zeal that He would be revered as Holy – as I was declaring this – but before this I had a zeal for salvation – I saw the angels ready to go and minister salvation to the Elect of God in this city – I saw this and I released them to go – in the Name of Jesus – to minister salvation to the Elect of this city…

    There is so much releasing which we do in prayer…

    I understand that there will be many people who will not understand a number of things which we do in Intercession but I will not be deterred… 🙂

    This will be a safe place for Intercessors to share their faith and their struggles – to grow and not be condemned – but to be encouraged to keep looking to the Great Intercessor who always lives to make Intercession for them…

    Praise You Jesus – bring them in Lord from all over the world – and expand our fellowship we pray in Jesus Name and for Your Glory, Thank You Lord… 🙂 Praise You Jesus… 🙂

  5. This post (to date) has had 53 views since it was posted…

    Only one other poster (V) has committed publically to take “the lowest Place” to date…

    I don’t believe that V is the only reader or poster who has viewed this post…

    Others have viewed it and have not responded…

    Why is this?

    This is where the rubber meets the road…

    This website is interactive…

    This website is a partnership…

    If you read “About” you will see why the Lord asked me to form this website…

    To pray in the harvest…

    Do you want to pray in the harvest?

    Do you want to pray that the Lord will raise up labourers in His harvest field?

    If you don’t then I suggest that you stop reading this blog…

    If you are committed to doing this then I believe this is your place on the internet…

    In fact I make it your place – you will be safe here and you will grow here and you will hear from the Lord here in unity with others who have this on their hearts…

    If this is not you then I suggest that you find yourself somewhere else to “hang out”…

    Yes, I’m laying down a challenge…

    Like Jesus did when so many who had followed Him to date no longer followed Him anymore I am laying down a challenge…

    Jesus said His brothers and sister and mother were those who knew or heard or saw the will of God and did it…

    These are my brothers and sisters also…

    I’m not interested in everyone else – in the sense of trying to have fellowship with them or partner in ministry with them…

    You can’t partner with someone or have fellowship with someone who is not surrendered to the Lord’s will…

    First of all pray…

    This is our commission…

    For all men because God desires all men to be saved…

    Offer yourself to go…

    I have…

    I don’t care if I have to go alone…

    I don’t care if I have to leave my wife and children behind if they don’t want to go…

    I have offered myself to go…

    I have offered myself to pray…

    I have let go of everything for the sake of this call…

    And I’m challenging you – if you read this – to do the same…

    These are the ones I want to have fellowship with…

    These are the ones I want to partner with…

    Is that you?

      Hi Andrew
      Just reading thru all your postings since I have time. I am in Tauranga looking after my older sister who had a stroke last week and has a blood clot on the brain artery. She is doing well and much prayer is going forth -her name is Joan. She goes to a user friendly church but she is still not really saved. When I first told her about Jesus she told me that if I mentioned Jesus, she would never speak to me again. I took no notice because of her health -the Lord told me she would die if I did not persevere with her salvation and in prayer.

      In times past I have been deserted by all of my natural family but Jesus said “Who is my mother, father, sister, wife, husband…….he/she that does the will of the Father…..” I was told prophetically right at the start of my journey in God (34 years ago) that my walk with God would cost me everything. I am destined for the ‘narrow road’ as there is no other way. I know the cost, I have been persecuted by the religious church system, deserted by compromising friends, prayed against endlessly by evil leaders, and I know a little of Apostle Paul’s walk. Also when you live in an unequally marriage satan works overtime and spiritual abuse is common, but unless the Lord says otherwise, you stay, because agape love covers a mutlitude of sins and eventually wins them to the One who is Love. We lay down our lives for the ‘sheep’, it costs us our reputation, our livelihood often, our health often,and it costs us our worldly success, but we have Christ – What we gain is so much more -when I met Christ in a very supernatural way I knew there was nothing and no-one in this earth to compare with the Gift of Christ. It is the Pearl of Great Price -and if we are willing he will take us on a journey to Him and His Rest -Jesus is our Sabbath Rest -Amen – not the day but Jesus.
      So dear brother Andrew ‘surrendering’ has been part of my spiritual walk for there is no other way if we desire to be really used of Him in this world, as the Apostles were.

      God bless all readers – Don’t look back but follow Christ -He will not disappoint you -Amen

      • Amen Alison, I will pray for Joan as the Lord leads me, What you share above is kind of what I “preached” about last night in my YouTube upload below, I love you and God bless you sister – He sees your sacrifice and great is your reward – we are sufficient in Him (sufficient to do everything He commissions us to – you are sufficient in Him – in your place of surrender to Him and to His will for your life – no matter how painful that is), Love you, Andrew… 🙂
