Intervention in the Ecclesia
Given by the Holy Spirit in Prophecy and Revelation through
Seeley C. Kinne in the year 1936
Intervention is a suspension of the ordinary law of approach
to God, and the interposition of the Divine hand, to do things
beyond man’s faith and working in prayer and seeking.
Intervention is the way God has often bridged over the short-comings
and failures of His servants. It means God working beyond
man and his faith. It is God in the lead.
God is going to do great things using His servants as a channel,
altogether beyond what they could believe for. That is Intervention.
This is a part of His last day great working that is to be
done in many places.
Now in regard to Intervention there is this to be added.
It is the full return of man to his proper state of pliability
in the hands of the Lord, and the full elimination of all
independent action: that is the state in which the Lord is
the Actor, man is acted upon. Few Christians arrive at this
state, but some are approximately near to it.
Since the Creator made man with a high order of powers of
will, dominion and lordship, and gave him title deed to the
earth, God would not intrude upon these rights.
But by an exceeding wise and benevolent plan, the Son becomes
a man, bears the curse, pays the debt to justice, and becomes
the Heir of all things.
Yet Jesus Christ has waited twenty centuries to give man
an opportunity to do with Divine, conveyed powers.
Now the age must be closed. The Lord is taking hold of the
whole situation, though still using human servants. Intervention
appears in the Lord’s exercise of sovereign powers in
connection with the ministry of His servants when He as sovereign
God arises and does great miraculous things beyond the faith
and gifts of His servants.
This is the method of spiritual progress especially into
the Apostolic State. Most schools of attainment in spirituals
are based on human method and means. Therefore the indifferent
progress is made. But there are Divine methods that are altogether
The Divine method calls for prayer, waiting and seeking God.
Following which, or coming forth in or through these efforts
is revelation. This is an illumination that opens to one the
way. It is accompanied or followed by workings of the Spirit,
which motions bring one into the things revealed and sought.
But in Intervention, the hand of God’s power is present
to carry one beyond the ordinary human attainment, and miraculously
set one onward into the things of God.
Those whom God has led in this way into spiritual states
and things, if they pay heed to His movings, He will miraculously
carry into the Apostolic ministry.
This is a spiritual state, in which control of the motions
of being pass out of the natural into the spiritual, that
is, from the initiative of the natural man, into the initiative
of the Holy Spirit—a state of being moved by the Divine
will. Thereby there comes a full and free entrance into the
supernatural realm, or kingdom of Heaven.
This is the apostolic or miracle realm. Here comes forth
the true Ecclesia. This is the kingdom of Heaven in operation
God is bringing a company of men and women today, into this
high full state of Divine control. Here the miracle working
power of the Spirit operates to perform any and all miracles
that God may see best to do.
This company will come forth as the prophetic army, described
in Joel 2:1-11 and Isaiah 13:6. From or through them will
come the prophetic word of God in foretelling determinate
counsel in this, the great day of Jehovah.
