Benches are crucial to mirror the heavenly blueprint. Father son and Holy Spirit model a bench of 3. The seven spirits in revelation model a bench of 7. With this model we are more likely to have greater authority and also reach agreement. Other numbers don’t work as well as they don’t model heaven.
THE NEW BLUEPRINT WE HAVE SEEN IS WE DON’T LEGISLATE ACCORDING TO WHAT WE SEE THE WORLD SAYS IS THE SOLUTION BUT WE DO WHAT WE SEE HEAVEN IS SAYING WHICH MAY BE A LOT QUICKER AND EASIER.
Some possible ways to start:-
Seek revelation on one or two mountains of your scroll . We all have the development of the ecclesia on our scroll so starting there is a great place as we are called to FATHER a few reliable men who are able to teach others (2 Tim 2:2).
You can begin sending a call out in the heavenly realms. Networking with people and finding people on Facebook can help connections. We have many chat groups where you can find connections and post your desire to find others to form a bench of 3.
Starting messenger groups on Facebook can really help connections and regular contact about the scroll you feeling strongly about, e.g., health, world peace, the environment, street trafficking.
Asking about people’s scrolls or passions can be a great way to start conversations.
A good sign is if there is a good rapport, mutual honor and understanding about blueprints.
Rushing the formation of benches can result in them falling over easily. Each must see in heaven those people being in a bench together.
Starting to go into heaven with each other can be a good place to start, to see if there is a connection.
You DONT officially call yourself a bench IMMEDIATELY
Benches are over mandates which have 7 mountains. Getting clarity over these in heaven can be a good start before a formal bench is decided upon.
You don’t need a bench to form a small gathering of people as not about ruling the ECCLESIA.
YOU DON’T START A BENCH AND THEN FORM A GROUP like a heaven ascension under it. A group will meet and finally settle a blueprint and bench leaders will arise from those most committed.
Benches are mainly for legislation on their own. e.g., over a region or over Health, apart from benches in an APOSTOLIC CENTRE where there are mountains. MEN IN WHITE LINEN CAN BE ON A BENCH BEFORE THE RIGHT HUMAN BEINGS ARISE.
They are not governmental positions of authority over people
I don’t see benches over a local ECCLESIA gathering as in boards or elders deciding on how the group functions as all are equal and any leadership is servant hearted not control, facilitating according to the needs of the people but not making controlling decisions. WE ARE SEEING THAT MOST GROUPS CAN BE SELF FUNCTIONING IF CHRIST IS ALLOWED TO BE THE HEAD.
If this happens we could end up repeating models of the old wineskin where control was rampant and where many did not facilitate from the bottom upwards. (The bible says “do not lord it over others”).
