THE NEW BREED
Excerpts from The Shepherd's Rod 2009

THE NEW BREED ~ August 4, 2008
Although the revelation of the New Breed came in August of this year, we felt it was important to include in this year's Shepherd's Rod. As the plumb line has been dropped or the line drawn in the sand, there is a calling forth of the holy ones to walk with God. He is a holy God and He is looking for a holy people to dwell not only in His presence occasionally, but to reside in Him. Where fear of man cannot reach, sin cannot dwell and compromise is not an option. God is looking for a people who will not be part time lovers but enveloped in His Love, taking on the divine nature of His Son Jesus. There is a coming forth of the NEW BREED! They are not old and they are not young. They will come forth in the Spirit of Holiness.
Romans 1:4 And [as to His divine nature] according to the Spirit of holiness was openly designated the Son of God in power [in a striking, triumphant and miraculous manner] by His resurrection from the dead, even Jesus Christ our Lord (the Messiah, the Anointed One). The Spirit of Holiness coming forth is the divine nature of Christ
2 Peter 1:4-10 By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature. 5 For this very reason, adding your diligence [to the divine promises], employ every effort in exercising your faith to develop virtue (excellence, resolution, Christian energy), and in [exercising] virtue [develop] knowledge (intelligence), 6 And in [exercising] knowledge [develop] self-control, and in [exercising] self-control [develop] steadfastness (patience, endurance), and in [exercising] steadfastness [develop] godliness (piety), 7 And in [exercising] godliness [develop] brotherly affection, and in [exercising] brotherly affection [develop] Christian love. 8 For as these qualities are yours and increasingly abound in you, they will keep [you] from being idle or unfruitful unto the [full personal] knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) . 9 For whoever lacks these qualities is blind, [spiritually] shortsighted, seeing only what is near to him, and has become oblivious [to the fact] that he was cleansed from his old sins. 10 Because of this, brethren, be all the more solicitous and eager to make sure (to ratify, to strengthen, to make steadfast) your calling and election; for if you do this, you will never stumble or fall. The new breed shall be of the divine nature and will be a friend with God.
John 15:15 I do not call you servants (slaves) any longer; for the servant does not know what his master is doing (working out). But I have called you My friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from My Father. [I have revealed to you everything that I have learned from Him.] The Spirit of holiness coming forth will have resurrection power in it and this power will bring the obedience of what Christ called us to.
Mt 10:8 Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons. Freely (without pay) you have received, freely (without charge) give.
Most of the people Bob saw were between the ages of 25 & 40. They will be the first of the new breed which others will immediately begin to follow and they will not fall back. The Spirit of Holiness is different than the Holy Spirit although it works by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of Holiness is the nature of Christ in you coming forth in maturity. Christ formed in you to a new level of maturity. Paul's prayer will be answered; he travailed until Christ be formed in you. (Gal 4:19) suffering birth pangs until Christ is formed in us. Those who will walk forth in the Spirit of Holiness will be individuals who will represent Christ in a new level of maturity. These will be the first of the great youth leaders which countless numbers will follow. Christ was the first of the new breed coming forth resurrected by the Spirit of Holiness. This new breed will be motivated by the Spirit of God doing nothing of themselves but only doing what they see the Father doing.
John 5:19 So Jesus answered them by saying I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the Son is able to do nothing of Himself (of His own accord); but He is able to do only what He sees the Father doing, what the Son does in the same way (in His turn).
YEAR OF THE GRANDMOTHERS
This is the year of the woman! Those over 50 coming forth to show mothers and sisters how to live successfully through this troubled time. Recently Bonnie had a vision of an old granny driving her old jalopy. She darted in and out of traffic while the police were in hot pursuit of her. Cars and trucks got out of her way, a semi almost overturned to avoid hitting her while she sped on. Quickly she darted onto a side street out of sight from the police. They continue in pursuit never seeing her turn. She brought her jalopy to a screeching halt and quickly turning around looking over her right shoulder put her right thumb up and yelped 'tee hee!!' She had out run the law. She knew who she was in Christ and she was no longer under the law but under grace.
The law of man has kept women quiet in the church and this is the year the women come forth; especially the women over 50, the grandmothers and great grandmothers who have faithfully served in silence. Their prayers and intercession have been heard before the throne of God and He's calling them to step up to the plate and take their rightful position in the body of Christ. Women have birthed this season in the history of mankind. We need wise women to deliver us this year. In 2 Timothy 1, Paul reminds Timothy of the wisdom his grandmother Lois and mother Eunice imparted to him. Grandmothers are leading their sons and grandsons to their knees. There is no answer short of God.
2 Timothy 1:5-6 I am calling up memories of your sincere and unqualified faith (the leaning of your entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), [a faith] that first lived permanently in [the heart of] your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am [fully] persuaded, [dwells] in you also. 6 That is why I would remind you to stir up (rekindle the embers of, fan the flame of, and keep burning) the [gracious] gift of God, [the inner fire] that is in you by means of the laying on of my hands [with those of the elders at your ordination].
Only Jesus at His death fully completed all that He was called to do in His life on earth. The rest of us will always fall short of our calling. We all have ancestors who for different reasons never completed their calling in Christ. Their gifts are still available because of bloodline blessings. It's time to ask God for our spiritual inheritance; that which our ancestors left incomplete. We need to ask God to grant us the wisdom, mercy and grace to walk out that which we were called to.
