Joining The Heavenly Council of the Lord Experience– 09-11-15
I was resting on my bed and the angel said, “Come, it’s
time to go to the Council.” So immediately we were standing near a group of
people that were all sitting in a circle around a fire and it looked a setting
from ancient bible times. Some had their heads covered, some were reclining, but
they were all waiting for something. I looked around as they all waited, and I
began to have a vision of a baby that was restless and upset, so I saw 2 large
hands place it on a mother’s chest, and soon the baby settled down as it began
to hear the mother’s heart beat. The baby got into rhythm with the mothers
heartbeat and it was soon resting. The vision left, and I was still standing
there watching the council.
All of a sudden it seemed like time itself slowed down and everything became suspended. I could hear my own breathing and I could hear the fire as it crackled, but nothing moved. Then it was like everything became still inside and outside, it was all suspended somehow, and I was aware of only the Lord. I could feel Him everywhere, inside me, and also all around. The entire atmosphere was charged with Him. A rush then came and we all were illuminated from within. It was like His living essence swirling in our cells, and we all saw with perfect clarity and heard Him speaking with clear understanding, for we were in Him. I then saw us all suspended within His heart. We were of one heart and one mind, within Him, and we were in His heart, and we all understood His mind. This was full union.
He said, “These are the days in which you must gather unto Me even more. For the clamor of the voices will only grow louder with the burdens of the sinful world that is in the earth. My People, You must build My Habitation. You cannot build according to what you have learned of men on the earth, no! You must build with the knowledge of Me! You must come to Me, to hear from Me. In order to know what I am doing in the earth, and especially in your day, you will have to draw nearer to Me, in order to clearly see. You must learn to be united with Me. You must learn to bring your hearts and minds into rhythm with Mine. You must understand what the mind of the Spirit is, or you will miss what I am doing. I have a plan for you. Only those that move in rhythm with My Spirit, will move securely in the days ahead, and will be full of My peace. Do not be troubled by the things you currently see and hear, but learn to draw even more near. You are to live this close to Me, and as you do, you will joyfully do that things that I tell you to do. This is not a time to be fearful, anxious, or scattered. This is not a time to be wasting My time. I have given time to you to bring the harvest in, but you cannot use this time as would other men. My Glory is moving in your midst and is bringing a deep and full separation. More intense things in the earth are about to begin, for the light of My Glory is going to break out from within. I am going to have a Glorious Habitation! I am going to shake all nations, and all men, and you must all learn to shut out the clamor of men. It is time to meet with Me even more corporately. I am going to gather My Heavenly Council’s even more. I have much to say to you concerning your days. It’s time to join with Me, and to join together hand in hand. It’s time to fully understand the things that will shortly begin across every land. It’s time to come to My Council and to understand My Plan.”
As the Lord spoke, I was instantly aware of the passage of Exodus 24, where the 74 elders were gathered by the Lord’s instruction to His Mountain to meet with Him.
Then the angel with me then spoke and said, “The baby you saw in the vision is current condition of the church. She is agitated and is not in rhythm with the Lord, and she must tune herself to His heart and to His mind. You cannot listen to men, and also listen to Him. You cannot join yourself to men, and join yourself to Him. You must bring your lives into divine order, and learn to draw from Him now. Time is short, and you must grow up into spiritual manhood, and prepare for the great changes to come.”
As I opened up my bible program to look up verses on the Lord’s council, and this was the opening verse:
[The Lord the Keeper of Israel.] [A Song of Ascents.] I will lift up my eyes to the hills [of Jerusalem]— From where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2 AMP
Exodus 24:1 Then God said to Moses, “Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu (Aaron’s older sons), and seventy of Israel’s elders, and you shall worship at a [safe] distance. 2 Moses alone shall approach the Lord, but the others shall not come near, nor shall the people come up with him.” 3 Then Moses came and told the people everything that the Lord had said and all the ordinances. And all the people answered with one voice, “Everything the Lord has said we will do.” 4 Moses wrote down all the words of the Lord. Then he got up early in the morning, and built an altar [for worship] at the foot of the mountain with twelve pillars (memorial stones) representing the twelve tribes of Israel. 5 Then he sent young Israelite men, and they offered burnt offerings and sacrificed young bulls as peace offerings to the Lord. 6 Moses took half of the blood and put it in large basins, and [the other] half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar. 7 Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it aloud to the people; and they said, “Everything that the Lord has said we will do, and we will be obedient.” 8 So Moses took the blood [which had been placed in the large basins] and sprinkled it on the people, and said, “Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words.” 9 Then Moses, Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel went up [the mountainside], 10 and they saw [a manifestation of] the God of Israel; and under His feet there appeared to be a pavement of sapphire, just as clear as the sky itself. 11 Yet He did not stretch out His hand against the nobles of the Israelites; and they saw [the manifestation of the presence of] God, and ate and drank. 12 Now the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to Me on the mountain and stay there, and I will give you the stone tablets with the law and the commandments which I have written for their instruction.” 13 So Moses arose with Joshua his attendant, and he went up to the mountain of God. 14 And he said to the elders, “Wait here for us until we come back to you. Remember that Aaron and Hur are with you; whoever has a legal matter, let him go to them.” 15 Then Moses went up to the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. 16 The glory and brilliance of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days. On the seventh day God called to Moses from the midst of the cloud. 17 In the sight of the Israelites the appearance of the glory and brilliance of the Lord was like consuming fire on the top of the mountain. 18 Moses entered the midst of the cloud and went up the mountain; and he was on the mountain forty days and forty nights.
Jeremiah 23:15 Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts in regard to the prophets, ‘Behold, I am going to feed them [the bitterness of] wormwood and make them drink the poisonous water [of gall], For from the [counterfeit] prophets of Jerusalem profaneness and ungodliness have spread into all the land.’” 16 Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Do not listen to the words of the [false] prophets who prophesy to you. They are teaching you worthless things and are leading you into futility; They speak a vision of their own mind and imagination and not [truth] from the mouth of the Lord. 17 “They are continually saying to those who despise Me [and My word], ‘The Lord has said, “You will have peace”’; and they say to everyone who walks after the stubbornness of his own heart, ‘No evil will come on you.’18 “But who [among them] has stood in the council of the Lord, That he would perceive and hear His word? Who has marked His word [noticing and observing and paying attention to it] and has [actually] heard it? 19 “Behold, the tempest of the Lord has gone forth in wrath, A whirling tempest; It will whirl and burst on the heads of the wicked. 20 “The anger of the Lord will not turn back Until He has set in motion and accomplished the thoughts and intentions of His heart; In the last days you will clearly understand it. 21 “I did not send [these counterfeit] prophets, Yet they ran; I did not speak to them, Yet they prophesied. 22 “But if they had stood in My council, Then they would have caused My people to hear My words, Then they would have turned My people from their evil way And from the evil of their decisions and deeds. 23 “Am I a God who is at hand,” says the Lord, “And not a God far away?” 24 “Can anyone hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him?” says the Lord. “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord.
Growing up spiritually:
Ephesians 4:11 And [His gifts to the church were varied and] He Himself appointed some as apostles [special messengers, representatives], some as prophets [who speak a new message from God to the people], some as evangelists [who spread the good news of salvation], and some as pastors and teachers [to shepherd and guide and instruct], 12 [and He did this] to fully equip and perfect the saints (God’s people) for works of service, to build up the body of Christ [the church]; 13 until we all reach oneness in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, [growing spiritually] to become a mature believer, reaching to the measure of the fullness of Christ [manifesting His spiritual completeness and exercising our spiritual gifts in unity]. 14 So that we are no longer children [spiritually immature], tossed back and forth [like ships on a stormy sea] and carried about by every wind of [shifting] doctrine, by the cunning and trickery of [unscrupulous] men, by the deceitful scheming of people ready to do anything [for personal profit]. 15 But speaking the truth in love [in all things—both our speech and our lives expressing His truth], let us grow up in all things into Him [following His example] who is the Head—Christ. 16 From Him the whole body [the church, in all its various parts], joined and knitted firmly together by what every joint supplies, when each part is working properly, causes the body to grow and mature, building itself up in [unselfish] love
We are all building according to His Pattern, within and without!
The Warring Angels and the Harvesting Angels 09-06-15
In the vision, I am standing and I see a vast number of
angels descending from Heaven downwards, into the city of Rochester. These
angels were very fierce and were heavily armored. They had long hair and
rippling muscles and chiseled features. Behind this group of angels, I then saw
other angels coming down, and these were not as heavily armed but had various
implements in their hands. The first group of Warring Angels had opened the way
for the second group of angels to come into our realm. I knew that the second
group of angels was Harvesting Angels.
The warring angels have been sent from heaven in conjunction with the release of the documents from the courts of heaven to open the way for the implementation of the purposes of God in the City. I knew that the harvesting angels would now work with the Body of Christ here to implement the new directives of the Lord, which will also serve to hasten the answers to our prayers for the sake of the harvest. I saw the harvesting angels go to all of the places of prayer where saints were gathered and they began to release strategy and wisdom to them.
The Father has a detailed harvest plan for every city, and region in the earth, and it is now time for the Body of Christ to understand more of what has waited to be revealed and unfolded into the earth. The warring angels are bringing the needed breakthroughs now, so that the needed wisdom from above can now descend, for we are now mature enough to receive it. Council will also come forth from the Father to enable the precise implementation, to be stewarded correctly across the Body of Christ, which will also ultimately transform this generation.
Because of the importance of these courtly dispatches, the warring angels will also bring to an end every evil work that has opposed, hindered, and obstructed the release of the courts decisions from heaven. A great cleansing will now purge every work in the earth that is not truly rooted in the heart of the Father, so that what has masqueraded as the true will not hinder those who are to come into the Fathers House. The harvesting angels will gather out the hidden tares and will swiftly remove them from their places, so that the harvest can be accelerated in the earth.
The angelic reinforcements have come to open the harvesting gates, now that the new leaders have their rightful documents. The warring angels and the harvesting angels work together with men to bring forth the answers from every prayer that has risen to the Father for the harvest. Heavenly dispatches will now begin come to those who will hear the His Voice, and you will also know the strategy of the angelic forces arrayed around you. It is time to arise in your cities, and look up, unto Him who is answering you and is sending you help, for the harvest fields are ripe around you, and every soul’s care has been entrusted unto you!
Matthew 13:37 He answered, He Who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, and the good seed means the children of the kingdom; the darnel is the children of the evil one, 39 And the enemy who sowed it is the devil. The harvest is the close and consummation of the age, and the reapers are angels. 40 Just as the darnel (weeds resembling wheat) is gathered and burned with fire, so it will be at the close of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all causes of offense [persons by whom others are drawn into error or sin] and all who do iniquity and act wickedly, 42 And will cast them into the furnace of fire; there will be weeping and wailing and grinding of teeth. 43 Then will the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with God) shine forth like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let him who has ears [to hear] be listening, and let him consider and perceive and understand by hearing.
THE HEART OF THE CITY
June 19, 2015
In the vision, I was hovering over the city of
Rochester. I saw the streets below me and I was looking for the heart of the
Suddenly I saw an angel come and walked down one of the streets to a manhole, and he lifted off the cover, and then I saw the angel reach into the dark hole below and he pulled out a huge heart, but it was very slimy, and covered in sewage. It also was not beating. The angel then blew on the dirty heart and the slime just kind of melted off of the still heart, and it began to beat again. I asked the angel what had happened to the heart and why it was in the sewer.
The angel then said, “The heart of the city was in the sewer, because the church has not been the doer.” I was shocked, and amazed. Then I cried out to the Lord to give us the heart of the city, that we would care for it correctly. Then I saw many people standing everywhere in the city around me. We all then opened up our chests, like opening twin doors, and the angel then took the beating heart and put it within our chests.
The Lord is looking for those who will take responsibility for their cities and regions, and who will bear the burden of the souls that live within it, and also carry the welfare of their city with Him. We are the burden bearers, but also the life bringers, the stewards for our cities. If there is no man to intercede, then there is no hope, or help, or remedy for increasing the light in that city. Without a vision- a revelatory experience- the people will perish.
“The Heavenly Fountain Experience - 06-01-15”
As I laid down to rest, in the vision, I was instantly standing within the heavenly New Jerusalem again. I was standing in front of the great white fountain, which is in the center of the courtyard. I decided to go and sit on the ledge of the fountain for a few minutes. As I approached the fountain, I could feel the spray of the water in the air on my face. I smiled in delight as I reached the edge. I turned my face into the spray and listened to the water, as it pumped upwards, and then flowed down into the base of the fountain. I could hear singing within the water.
As I listened to the singing, I noticed that the mist from the water was also increasing all around me. It was amazing to watch the water spray all around me in a very fine mist, and each drop looked like it was dancing in the air. I laughed as I watched moving of the water in the air. The spray also seemed to be lifting upwards and coming towards me as if to envelop me, as I at on the edge of the fountain. I watched in awe, as it closed around me like angel wings would do. It was like being within my own private haven within the mist. I closed my eyes to enjoy the gift the Lord was allowing me to experience here in the city.
After some time, I noticed the song had finished, and I also realized that the waters slowed down. I opened my eyes, and I was shocked. I was no longer in the heavenly New Jerusalem anymore, but I was still sitting on the edge of the fountain. We were now in a vast arid desert somewhere! Somehow I was now on the earth, and I was in a very dry place! I looked around wondering why I was brought here with the fountain. Just then, the Lord appeared and He sat down on the edge of the fountain next to me. He was smiling, and was evidently enjoying my wonderment. After a few minutes, His face changed and He began to look at me in earnest.
He said, “Susan, will you be a fountain for Me to those who are dwelling in the wilderness? My people are very dry, and they are thirsty. They are worn out and many have lost their hope. Will you tend them, and strengthen them, and bring My Life to them? I want to release My Fountains in the deserts in this hour. I want to refresh and strengthen My People for their journeys ahead. I am going to open My Fountains from within, and those who will let Me pour them out, will also greatly break out. It is time for Strength and for Fresh Vision to also break out!”
Isaiah 43:19 Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. 20 The beasts of the field honor Me, the jackals and the ostriches, because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen,
Isaiah 35:6 Then shall the lame man leap like a hart, and the tongue of the dumb shall sing for joy. For waters shall break forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert. 7 And the burning sand and the mirage shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water; in the haunt of jackals, where they lay resting, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
Isaiah 41:17 The poor and needy are seeking water when there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. I the Lord will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. 18 I will open rivers on the bare heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. 19 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia, the myrtle, and the wild olive; I will set the cypress in the desert, the plane [tree] and the pine [tree] together,
Isaiah 49:10 They will not hunger or thirst, neither will mirage [mislead] or scorching wind or sun smite them; for He Who has mercy on them will lead them, and by springs of water will He guide them.
Revelations 7:17 For the Lamb Who is in the midst of the throne will be their Shepherd, and He will guide them to the springs of the waters of life; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
John 10:11 I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd risks and lays down His [own] life for the sheep. 12 But the hired servant (he who merely serves for wages) who is neither the shepherd nor the owner of the sheep, when he sees the wolf coming, deserts the flock and runs away. And the wolf chases and snatches them and scatters [the flock]. 13 Now the hireling flees because he merely serves for wages and is not himself concerned about the sheep [cares nothing for them]. 14 I am the Good Shepherd; and I know and recognize My own, and My own know and recognize Me— 15 Even as [truly as] the Father knows Me and I also know the Father—and I am giving My [very own] life and laying it down on behalf of the sheep. 16 And I have other sheep [beside these] that are not of this fold. I must bring and impel those also; and they will listen to My voice and heed My call, and so there will be [they will become] one flock under one Shepherd.
“My Trumpets Are Going To Activate What I Have Sown Into My Own”- 05-24-15
In the vision, I saw millions of angels with trumpets
descend from heaven down to the earth. I saw the angels then go to every
believer and stand by them. The angels then took the trumpet that was in their
one hand and readied them and then they waited. I watched, and wondered what the
angels were going to do all over the world. I asked the Lord in the vision what
was happening. The Lord answered, “My Trumpets are going to activate that which
I have sown into My own.”
Then I saw the angels all over the world brighten, like their light just increased in a surge of release, and they raised their trumpets to their lips all at one time, and they began to blow them at the body of the believer who was next to them. As they blew, I could see the sound going into the believers, and I then saw into the believer’s bodies, and I saw seeds of light all being resonated by the trumpet’s sounds, and the seeds of light were activated within the beings of the believers. Some believers had many seeds, and some had a few, but I knew that all who were His true Children had seeds of light sown within.
I watched fascinated, as the angels continued to blow into the people. I saw the seeds of light that was being activated within them then begin to swirl inside them. I saw the seeds swirl so fast that they began to vibrate wildly, and then began to break open inside them, and as they did, the believers brightened. I noticed that the more seeds they had sown within them, the brighter their beings became. The angels around them kept blowing until all of the believers brightened and then I realized that the people were radiating with the greater knowledge of the Lord.
Then I saw all of the angels then take the hand of the believers they stood by. The angels themselves then begin to speak to the believers in such a way that new inspirations came to them, so that the people could be shifted into new places and situations, according to the Lord’s instructions for them. I saw the people begin to nod and smile, and they all began to move all over the earth. I wondered what all of the people were now going to do. “They are going to do what they were born on this earth to do,” said a voice. I turned and the Lord said, “What I have sown into them for this next Season has now been activated. My Wisdom will now guide them, and they shall now produce the fruits of their obedience to Me.”
“What I sow into you each internally is not always realized by you, until I activate it within you. It is My Light, the Essence of My Being, that is developed within your lives, as you walk with Me. Not everyone responds to Me the same. All of you have individual wills, so some will walk with Me closer than others. The more that you yield to Me, the more qualities of Myself I can sow into you, and the more of the knowledge of Me that I can also transform you into. It is now the Season of Activation, and it is also Time for Mobilization, so I am releasing fresh inspiration and illumination is now coming to release you all, for your next phase of your calls.”
“Vision with Jill Austin and the Deep Reservoir - Part Two: 05-16-15”
I am standing next to Jill Austin again in the vision. We
are standing before the window watching the sunrise. I watch with her wondering
what will happen next. Then Jill turns to look at me, and she smiles, and says,
“It is time, Susan. Come with me.” She holds out her hand and motions for me to
follow her. She turns and takes off her apron and hangs it on the hook. Then she
pauses and runs her hand along the cupboard and she releases a sigh on the way
out. Then she opened the door and we stepped out into the daylight.
The sun was still rising and everything was cast in the same orange glow. It was beautiful to behold. Jill started walking across the yard and I turned and hurried to keep up with her. She then headed to a hilly area on the property. Jill stopped and looked, and I stopped next to her. There was a door built into the side of the hill, much like a tornado shelter or a root cellar would be. She looked at me and smiled. “You are ready to begin. It is time to access what has been hidden until now. It is time to enter the deeper reservoir.”
With that, Jill reached out and pulled on the door, which easily responded to her touch. She went through the door and into a room. I followed her into the room, and I saw that there were more stairs. She then smiled at me, and went down the next flight of stairs. It grew even darker as we progressed downwards. We then came to a dead end. Jill then knelt down and felt for something in the dirt floor. She found it and pulled up on a hidden handle, which lifted to her touch.
We descended via an old iron ladder down a dimly lit vertical channel. I was about to question Jill, when she called to me from below. “Come Susan, you must see what lies ahead.” Within a couple more rungs we were now standing on a ledge. I could see below and there was a river of lava flowing. “We are in a lava tube underground?” I asked. “No,” Jill said, “This is what the Lord has brought you to understand. You must fully enter into the depths, in order to bring the full harvest in.”
She then turned and threw herself downwards into the lava flowing below. I watched in horror as Jill plunged into the lava. I didn’t know what to do. I paced back and forth. Jill did not come back up from the lava. After a moment I slowly realized that I must follow. I finally came to the conclusion that there was no other place to go, so I just jumped. I hit the lava and speedily sank into it. It did not burn me at all. I was surprised, because I could actually see within the lava and was astounded.
Within the lava was a place, and there were multitudes of people there. They were all alive and smiling at me. I could see clearly each person, and the Lord who stood among them. He laughed at my expression heartily. Jill also laughed, coming over to stand beside me. I said, “This is not lava at all.” The Lord laughed again, “No Susan, it is not. This is the place of My Deep, the place that I am calling all of My People into. You must learn to live in My Deep, in order to release the depths of the knowledge of Me upon the earth. You are the leadership called to help My People give birth to the knowledge of Me.”
“My People must surrender themselves to Me fully, and align everything in their lives with Me. My People are earthen vessels, and they are also heavenly vessels. There are two realms are dwelling within their being, but the earthly one is still mainly predominant in My church, and this cannot remain so in your day. One must give way. My Kingdom is within you, but that is just the beginning. You each must yield fully to me, and allow Me to establish My deeper Reservoir within you.”
“I have deep reservoirs that you know not of; and few have chosen to seek out these places that flow from within. You must break open the fountains of the deep, which will empower you for the harvest that you must all reap. I have prepared you for this season. You stand at the precipice of great global change, but few are correctly positioned to govern in the changes that shall soon begin. It is time that you all choose to get fully in. It is time that you all abandon yourselves to My higher call.”
“Many have already paid the price to prepare the way for you. Now it is your turn to prepare the way for multitudes.” Jesus then waved His arm at all of the people who stood near. He said, “These all stand here because of My Grace. You also will stand by my Grace. It is My Grace that brought you to this place. It is My Wisdom that guides men in their race. It is My Grace that will bring you even further. Launch out into the reservoir of My Wisdom, it is available to all who will search it out.”
“My Word is an everlasting fire that cannot be put out. Men will try to silence the voices of My people in this hour, and will try to erase all knowledge of Me in your day, but nothing can prevent My Glory from fanning everywhere. I shall flood the earth with the knowledge of Me, and men shall know that it is I alone, that sets them free. From the very bowels of that which I have brooded over, and from what I have labored over in your day, I will surely bring it forth in every way.”
“You have allowed Me to purge you, and now I can bring forth My deeper view. Take no anxious or fearful thought for the days ahead, for I have given this time to you as your bread. I already know the things that will take place ahead. Take your positions in the deeper things of Me, for in this place will you understand the coming mysteries. My eruptions are about to begin, and when they do, you shall greatly fish for men. You will know what to do, and My Grace will bring you all through.”
The door into His Deep:
Isaiah 11:9 They shall not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. 10 And it shall be in that day that the Root of Jesse shall stand as a signal for the peoples; of Him shall the nations inquire and seek knowledge, and His dwelling shall be glory [His rest glorious]!
Wisdom and the Fountain of the Deep:
Proverbs 8:27 When He prepared the heavens, I [Wisdom] was there; when He drew a circle upon the face of the deep and stretched out the firmament over it, 28 When He made firm the skies above, when He established the fountains of the deep, 29 When He gave to the sea its limit and His decree that the waters should not transgress [across the boundaries set by] His command, when He appointed the foundations of the earth—
Proverbs 18:3 When the wicked comes in [to the depth of evil], he becomes a contemptuous despiser [of all that is pure and good], and with inner baseness comes outer shame and reproach. 4 The words of a [discreet and wise] man’s mouth are like deep waters [plenteous and difficult to fathom], and the fountain of skillful and godly Wisdom is like a gushing stream [sparkling, fresh, pure, and life-giving].
Job 11:6 And that He would show you the secrets of wisdom! For He is manifold in understanding! Know therefore that God exacts of you less than your guilt and iniquity [deserve]. 7 Can you find out the deep things of God, or can you by searching find out the limits of the Almighty [explore His depths, ascend to His heights, extend to His breadths, and comprehend His infinite perfection]? 8 His wisdom is as high as the heights of heaven! What can you do? It is deeper than Sheol (the place of the dead)! What can you know?
Romans 11:32 For God has consigned (penned up) all men to disobedience, only that He may have mercy on them all [alike]. 33 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unfathomable (inscrutable, unsearchable) are His judgments (His decisions)! And how untraceable (mysterious, undiscoverable) are His ways (His methods, His paths)! 34 For who has known the mind of the Lord and who has understood His thoughts, or who has [ever] been His counselor?
Releasing the deeper knowledge of God to all men:
Romans 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unfathomable (inscrutable, unsearchable) are His judgments (His decisions)! And how untraceable (mysterious, undiscoverable) are His ways (His methods, His paths)!
Colossians 1:10 That you may walk (live and conduct yourselves) in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him and desiring to please Him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing and increasing in and by the knowledge of God [with fuller, deeper, and clearer insight, acquaintance, and recognition].
Philippians 1:9 And this I pray: that your love may abound yet more and more and extend to its fullest development in knowledge and all keen insight [that your love may display itself in greater depth of acquaintance and more comprehensive discernment], 10 So that you may surely learn to sense what is vital, and approve and prize what is excellent and of real value [recognizing the highest and the best, and distinguishing the moral differences], and that you may be untainted and pure and unerring and blameless [so that with hearts sincere and certain and unsullied, you may approach] the day of Christ [not stumbling nor causing others to stumble].
“Jill Austin and the Potter’s Shed Experience – 05-04-15”
I was resting on my bed, when
suddenly I see a shed in a very beautiful landscaped place. The shed was made of
wood, and had three walls that were wood, and the fourth wall was made up of all
windows. The shed faced the direction of the sunrise. It was just before dawn,
in a crisp spring morning. The path that I was walking on went right by the
shed. As I drew closer to the shed, I saw Jill Austin also walk up to the shed
from across the yard. She had on white loose fitting pants and a white tunic,
and she was barefoot. She got to the door just when I arrived at the door of the
shed too. She smiled at me as I arrived and nodded, then she went in, with me
Inside the shed were many shelves on the walls lined with various pots and dishes. There were workbenches underneath the shelves that were also filled with various instruments, cloths, paints, brushes, and clays. She ran her fingers along the surface of the workbench lovingly and then walked over to the other side of the shed and reached up and took down an apron from a hook on the wall and put it on. She then turned around and smiled, and said, “We are just in time.”
She went over to some clay pots that were on a higher shelf and took one set down. They looked like shoes. They were clay pots shaped like shoes. She put them on her feet. Then she took 2 more down from the high shelf and handed them to me. “Put them on,” she said. So, I bent down and slid my feet into them. I was amazed; they felt so nice, and fit me perfectly. She nodded in satisfaction, and said, “The shoes will always fit, if you are called to it.”
Then she walked over to the windows and looked out at the early pre-dawn sky. She seemed to be waiting for something. I watched out the window along with her. You could hear the birds singing outside. She then turned to me and said, “As long as you wear the Potter’s shoes, you will always have the Potter’s views.” She then winked at me and turned back to look out of the windows.
All of a sudden, the sun began to rise on the horizon, and the shafts of light from the rising sun were gloriously bright and orange colored. The brilliant sunlight rays filled the shed where we stood. All of the different pots on the shelves in the shed seemed to come alive. I looked over at Jill after a few moments, and her eyes were full of the same fire as the sunrise. - The vision ended.
Scriptures the Lord gave to me:
Jeremiah 18:2 Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.
Isaiah 41:25 I have raised up and impelled to action one from the north [Cyrus], and he comes; from the rising of the sun he calls upon My name [recognizing that his victories have been granted to him by Me]. And he shall tread upon rulers and deputies as upon mortar and as the potter treads clay. [He comes with the suddenness of a comet, but none of the idol oracles of the nations has anticipated it.]
2 Chronicles 36:23 Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: All the kingdoms of the earth the Lord, the God of heaven, has given me, and He has charged me to build Him a house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever there is among you of all His people, may the Lord his God be with him, and let him go up [to Jerusalem].
Ezra 1:1 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia [almost seventy years after the first Jewish captives were taken to Babylon], that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might begin to be accomplished, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom and put it also in writing: 2 Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and He has charged me to build Him a house at Jerusalem in Judah. 3 Whoever is among you of all His people, may his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem in Judah and rebuild the house of the Lord, the God of Israel, in Jerusalem; He is God.
Isaiah 41:25 Cyrus came from the east (Isa. 41:2), but defeated a number of kingdoms north of Babylon early in his reign. Palestinian authors frequently perceived invasions as coming primarily from the north.
Isaiah 41:2 Who has roused up one [Cyrus] from the east, whom He calls in righteousness to His service and whom victory meets at every step? He [the Lord] subdues nations before him and makes him ruler over kings. He turns them to dust with the sword [of Cyrus], and to driven straw and chaff with his bow.
We are called to set the captives free from every enemy. We are called to destroy the works of the devil, and to dispossess the enemy’s from the land. We are called to build the Habitation of the Lord. As our feet fully walk the course laid out for us by the Lord, we will always see the things as He sees, and we shall accomplish the tasks that we were fashioned for in this hour. It is time to step into the Potter’s shoes and get His true Harvest view!
The Voice of the Lord, the Volcano, and the Deeper Reservoirs
May 3, 2015
While in California, the Lord gave me several visions and experiences, and they each conveyed a series of revelations that will help us all grow up further into the knowledge of Him. I felt led to release more of them at this current time. I pray these pictures will impart truth into your inner man. May we all go deeper, until we are fully transformed by Him!
The Father Speaking from the Mountain:
I was lying in my hotel room, when suddenly the whole room shook. I heard rolling thunder that spanned from one end of heaven to the other. It was incredible. It was so loud that it was everywhere, and it thundered so loud it shook the entire room, including me. Then I heard the voice of the Father, and He was speaking very loud, and the words were so vast that I could hear the sound of them, but I could not grasp even one word. It was as if the words rolled across the heavens also as I listened, it was as if each word was in slow motion. I could not understand them, but I knew it was very important.
2 Samuel 22:14 The Lord thundered from heaven, and the Most High uttered His voice
Job 37:5 God thunders marvelously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend
3:16 The Lord will thunder and roar from Zion and utter His voice from
Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shall shake; but the Lord will be a
refuge for His people and a stronghold to the children of Israel
The Graduation of the Youth in Training:
I was attending a vast youth graduation. I was setting up the banquet tables and the table settings. When I was all done with the furnishings, I turned and asked Paul Cain if I could go and give the youth their flowers now. I knew that they were each to receive a flower as part of the graduation ceremony. Paul Cain then said to me, “yes”. So I went out and I found the flowers. I picked up a branch that was full of amber colored flowers, and I began to go to the youth to give them each one.
The Maturing of the Army:
Then the scene changed, and I was among a bunch of male and female soldiers, and they were all standing near each other discussing their weapons, their ammunition, and their former battles. I knew that they were all about to be put into higher levels of training, of which they had no previous experience, but that they were ready for the elite training.
The Revealing of the Deeper Reservoirs:
Then the scene changed, and I was looking at a photo album. I was turning the pages and looking at the pictures, one by one. The photos all appeared to be from the past, ones I recognized, and others I didn’t. At the end of the book, there was a note. It was written in cursive handwriting, and it was addressed to me. It said: “There is a vast reservoir available for you to tap into, and if you do, it will bless not only many, but also the world."
The Volcano of the Lord:
As we were in worship later that night, I saw in the vision, a scene of a mountain. I knew it represented the Habitation of the Lord, which is us, which He is building into a great workmanship in the earth. I saw the Mountain, and I could see within it also. It became transparent like a drawing, so I could understand the communication from the Lord. I understood that the mountain was a volcano. I saw the layers of the ground under the volcano, all the way down to the earth’s mantle, and even deeper into the molten lava flow residing way down deep. I saw the tube that went up from the lava reservoir, through the mantle, up through the various layers, and ultimately out through the top of the volcano. This volcano “the church” was not active, but was currently in a dormant phase.
The Lord began to speak to me regarding the meaning of the volcano as it relates to our times that we are living in as the church. He spoke about the scope of all of our past achievements collectively in advancing the kingdom through past revivals, visitations, and reformations. They could be symbolically compared to our tapping into layers of spiritual ground, such as underground water aquifers, and large oil deposits, and it would release a short lived burst of power and healing, and corresponding tremors of earthquakes in the Spirit realm would shake areas and bring small spiritual eruptions which would begin to transform a few areas, but then the deposits would eventually run dry, and the move of God was gone again.
Then the Lord spoke to me of our need to go even deeper, into the very “mantle” of Christ Himself, and we must all tap into the very “deep reservoirs of Christ” that await us to apprehend them. When we do, we will release the very hot lava of the Spirit, which is the Fiery Love of Christ, which can heal and transform the nations in our generation. The Father does not just want to bless many, or just a change few areas, He wants to transform the earth. He wants a sustained and long lasting transformation, which will bring the full harvest in, unto Himself.
Ephesians 1:17 [For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the
Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of
insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him,
18 By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know
and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His
glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones), 19 And [so that you can
know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and
surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as
demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength,
Song of Solomon 8:6 Set me like a seal upon your heart, like a seal upon your arm; for love is as strong as death, jealousy is as hard and cruel as Sheol (the place of the dead). Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame [the very flame of the Lord]!
Habakkuk 2:14 But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the (experiential) knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
Climbing the Mountain of the
Then I saw in another vision, the mountain again. This time, I saw it had a sheer rock face on one side that was very steep. Kind of like climbing up Mount Everest. I saw mountain climbers preparing to climb up the outside face of the sheer rock wall. I saw the climbers attaching a rope to each other that went through their belts that were around their waists. They were attached belt to belt. Then they began to climb the steep face of the mountain tethered together. I watched as they slowly climbed and made progress, pulling each other up as they went. Then they arrived at the top, and there was a vast plateau on top, and it spread out as far as you could see. Then, I saw the mountain begin to shine, and the cliff face of the mountain that they had just climbed turned brilliantly transparent. I could see Jesus’ face shining out of the cliff face. He was smiling at the climbers above.
We are currently growing up into the knowledge of the Truth, signified by our also learning to be yoked together wearing the Belt of Truth, we are also growing up into the full knowledge of Christ, and when we come to full spiritual stature, we will fully reveal Him to the world.
Colossians 2:9 For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature]. 10 And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].
1 Corinthians 2:6 Yet when we are among the full-grown (spiritually mature Christians who are ripe in understanding), we do impart a [higher] wisdom (the knowledge of the divine plan previously hidden); but it is indeed not a wisdom of this present age or of this world nor of the leaders and rulers of this age, who are being brought to nothing and are doomed to pass away. 7 But rather what we are setting forth is a wisdom of God once hidden [from the human understanding] and now revealed to us by God—[that wisdom] which God devised and decreed before the ages for our glorification [to lift us into the glory of His presence].
Ephesians 4:13 [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.
The Multi-Colored Winged Angel and the Shoebox Experiences
On the 10th, I was lying in bed and I saw a very large angel descend and he was hovering in the air above us. He had a white body and multi-colored shining wings. The wings looked like they had internal living colors or lights swirling in them. The angel was fanning over us with his wings, back and forth, for a few minutes. I knew by his appearance that he was a governmental angel, and he was releasing something in our area.
Then late last night after midnight, on the 12th, I was lying on the floor in the living room listening to a recording of Bob Jones talking about his life experiences. I saw myself in heaven with the Lord. We were sitting on the beach in beach chairs. Jesus was in one chair and I am in the other chair.
He looks at me and says, “I have something for you.” I said, “You do?” He smiled and said, “Yes, it’s in the sand, look over there.” He pointed for me to dig in the sand. So I got up and reached down into the sand and felt a box in the sand. I pulled it up and it was a shoebox. I opened the box and in it was a glass slipper. This glass slipper was shining internally with the same living lights that the angel’s wings were on the night before. It was very beautiful and made me think of the story of Cinderella. When she had to prove who she was, she had to put her foot into the shoe. So, I held the slipper in my hand and turned to look at the Lord.
The Lord then said, “Put your foot in the shoe.” So I put my foot within the shoe, and it fit me perfectly. The living essence that was in the shoe then went all the way up through me. I also began to light up internally just like the shoe. I looked at it and wondered just what the shoe meant, because it was in the shoebox. Jesus nodded at me in satisfaction, and said to me, “It means, The pure in heart will now start. You who have allowed Me to purify your hearts will now receive your new shoes, and you can now start.”
The Lord further spoke, “A fresh wave of My light will now flow unto the pure in heart, and this release will now start, and this greater light will turn the tides of the battle. The pure in heart will now begin to release such a light that it will put the mounting darkness to flight. You have been through a process of testing and refinement so that you would become pure in heart. I have removed those things that blocked the view of who I am within you. The knowledge of Me must be seen plainly within your life. I have initiated a new release, and those that have been purified, will now move in a new stride.”
I then thought of Jesus’ statement on the Mount, speaking of the Beatitudes:
Matthew 5:8 Blessed (happy, enviably fortunate, and spiritually prosperous—possessing the happiness produced by the experience of God’s favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His grace, regardless of their outward conditions) are the pure in heart, for they shall see God!
The Lord then gave me more scriptures, teaching me more on this subject:
Proverbs 16:1 The plans of the mind and orderly thinking belong to man, but from the Lord comes the [wise] answer of the tongue. 2 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits (the thoughts and intents of the heart). 3 Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.
Proverbs 22:11 He who loves purity and the pure in heart and who is gracious in speech—because of the grace of his lips will he have the king for his friend.
Titus 1:15 To the pure [in heart and conscience] all things are pure, but to the defiled and corrupt and unbelieving nothing is pure; their very minds and consciences are defiled and polluted.
1 Thessalonians 3:12 And may the Lord make you to increase and excel and overflow in love for one another and for all people, just as we also do for you, 13 So that He may strengthen and confirm and establish your hearts faultlessly pure and unblamable in holiness in the sight of our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) with all His saints (the holy and glorified people of God)! Amen, (so be it)!
The purification process will qualify us, or disqualify us:
1 Timothy 4:4 Nor to give importance to or occupy themselves with legends (fables, myths) and endless genealogies, which foster and promote useless speculations and questionings rather than acceptance in faith of God’s administration and the divine training that is in faith (in that leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence)—5 Whereas the object and purpose of our instruction and charge is love, which springs from a pure heart and a good (clear) conscience and sincere (unfeigned) faith. 6 But certain individuals have missed the mark on this very matter [and] have wandered away into vain arguments and discussions and purposeless talk.
2 Timothy 2:22 Shun youthful lusts and flee from them, and aim at and pursue righteousness (all that is virtuous and good, right living, conformity to the will of God in thought, word, and deed); [and aim at and pursue] faith, love, [and] peace (harmony and concord with others) in fellowship with all [Christians], who call upon the Lord out of a pure heart.
Hebrews 10:22 Let us all come forward and draw near with true (honest and sincere) hearts in unqualified assurance and absolute conviction engendered by faith (by that leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), having our hearts sprinkled and purified from a guilty (evil) conscience and our bodies cleansed with pure water. 23 So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word.
“The Healing Angels and the Tokens of God’s Love
March 28, 2015
Tonight during the worship service, I saw Jesus walking
through the room, and He was placing coins or tokens within the people as He
went. Some received more tokens than others, and some received only one. I
instantly knew that they were tokens of His love. As we learn to love, and to
spend our lives in service unto others, He then comes and repays us with more of
His love. You cannot out give His love. He wants to full us and flood us with
the knowledge of His love.
Jesus placed these golden coins within their spirits. As the coins went into their spirits, I could see a swirling growing within them, almost like clouds filling their beings. Their beings filled up with this Presence and I saw that this added to their being as they worshipped. I knew that this process was enriching them within their being with more insights into His love. I knew that the revelations of His love being deposited within them would satisfy their own inner needs, so that they can give even more of themselves to others.
Later in the worship, I saw healing angels in the room. They were very tall angels and I watched as they stepped up behind people, and they would open their wings and then enshroud the people with their wings. The love and compassion they showed for the person was tremendous. They closed their wings around them and released the love of God to bring healing into them. The Father is healing His People, as they worship Him in His Presence.
Scriptures the Lord gave to me:
Matthew 4:11 So the devil left Jesus, and angels came and ·took care of [served; ministered to] him.
Malachi 4:2 But unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and His beams, and you shall go forth and gambol like calves [released] from the stall and leap for joy.
Increasing in Love:
1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is (springs) from God; and he who loves [his fellowmen] is begotten (born) of God and is coming [progressively] to know and understand God [to perceive and recognize and get a better and clearer knowledge of Him].
Philippians 1:9 And this I pray: that your love may abound yet more and more and extend to its fullest development in knowledge and all keen insight [that your love may display itself in greater depth of acquaintance and more comprehensive discernment],
Matthew 25:21 His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithfuland trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into and share the joy (the delight, the blessedness), which your master enjoys.
The King Is Coming To Take Over His House – 03-17-15
I am laying upon my bed this evening, and suddenly I am
in the prophetic experience…..
I am standing at the pulpit in our church and I am weeping and singing about the King returning, and suddenly I see the back doors open up, and I see clouds everywhere outside the church, and then the clouds part into two separate directions, and I see Jesus on His white horse in the mall foyer. He dismounts and walks up towards the front where I am standing. The horse stays at the back door, and as the Lord gets closer and closer to me, the tears flow harder down my face and clothes.
Every cell in my body is vibrating and I am shaking inside and out. He has this look on His face of absolute authority, and I can hardly move at all. He gets about half way to the front, and He opens His mouth and fire comes out of His mouth and burns a trail all the way to the front where I am. The fire encircles me, but does not burn me. I am still weeping and singing about His majesty. Then He reaches the front and turns around and faces the people.
The people are then engulfed in the same swirling fires, and I can hear their screams, and groans, and laughter, and weeping from the fires. He just stands there while the fires do their work. Then, Jesus lifts His hands upwards, and then the clouds that were outside the back doors of the church then come rolling into the room, and the clouds filled the place with the holy atmosphere of heaven. The whole room is now filled with clouds.
I stop singing and stand there by the Lord and watch in holy awe. I can still hear the people within the clouds, but they were not as loud as before. They seemed to be far away, like in another place, even though I couldn’t see them. Jesus just watches and nods in satisfaction, and after a few moments He raises His hands again. A cool wind began to blow into the room from the back, and the wind swirled around the room and lifted the clouds till they were outside, above the mall itself.
I looked and I saw a magnificent sight. I saw all of the people in the room, and they were changed. They glowed like radiant amber, and some glowed like pure fire, and some shone like brand new jewels. They each had a whole new radiation about them!
The Lord then smiled and said, “This is My Body, whom I have waited for. These are the ones that I have labored over. This is the Glory that I shall fully restore. My House shall truly be beautified with Me, and I shall purge her thoroughly. I shall see Myself within her brightness, and within her obedience, and I shall be glorified. It is time for My House to rise, and for My Life to be displayed before all men’s eyes.”
Then the Lord was gone and I was out of the experience, lying on my bed. I then get up to write this encounter out, and the Lord gives me the following scriptures:
Psalms 149:3 Let them praise His name in chorus and choir and with the [single or group] dance; let them sing praises to Him with the tambourine and lyre! 4 For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation and adorn the wretched with victory. 5 Let the saints be joyful in the glory and beauty [which God confers upon them]; let them sing for joy upon their beds.
Ezekiel 1:4 As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud with a fire enveloping it and flashing continually; a brightness was about it and out of the midst of it there seemed to glow amber metal, out of the midst of the fire.
Ezekiel 10:4 Then the glory of the Lord mounted up from the cherubim to stand over the threshold of the [Lord’s] house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord’s glory.
Isaiah 25:6 And on this Mount [Zion] shall the Lord of hosts make for all peoples a feast of rich things [symbolic of His coronation festival inaugurating the reign of the Lord on earth, in the wake of a background of gloom, judgment, and terror], a feast of wines on the lees—of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 7 And He will destroy on this mountain the covering of the face that is cast over the heads of all peoples [in mourning], and the veil [of profound wretchedness] that is woven and spread over all nations. 8 He will swallow up death [in victory; He will abolish death forever]. And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; and the reproach of His people He will take away from off all the earth; for the Lord has spoken it. 9 It shall be said in that day, Behold our God upon Whom we have waited and hoped, that He might save us! This is the Lord, we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.
Isaiah 62:1 For Zion’s sake will I [Isaiah] not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest until her imputed righteousness and vindication go forth as brightness, and her salvation radiates as does a burning torch.
Daniel 12:3 And the teachers and those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness (to uprightness and right standing with God) [shall give forth light] like the stars forever and ever.
Isaiah 60:13 The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, the cypress, the plane, and the pine [trees] together, to beautify the place of My sanctuary; and I will make the place of My feet glorious.
Isaiah 60:2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. 3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. 19 The sun shall no more be your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you, but the Lord shall be to you an everlasting light, and your God your glory and your beauty.
The King is returning to His House…
The Uprooting of the Trees Dream
March 9, 2015
There were several scenes, but the last two were the most
vivid. I was preaching somewhere that looked like a forest. I was speaking about
the coming of the power, like Pentecost. The wind began to blow as I talked. I
began to speak of the progression of the power of God and the wind blew again,
this time harder. It was coming from behind me, and blowing outwards. I spoke
more on the power and was describing the Lords handiwork and His desire for His
People, and the wind blew harder a third time.
I then noticed as I spoke that the wind had blew me towards a bluff, and there was a small tree ahead of me. I was being blown towards the little tree. I stuck my foot out, and braced myself against the base of the little tree, to keep myself from being blown over the bluff. As I pushed with my foot, the tree began to be uprooted and the roots began to be exposed by the pressure from my foot. I pushed more and more till there was only 1 little section of root left, and the tree started to go over the edge of the bluff. I pushed one more time, and the tree went totally over and I peered over the edge, and saw the bottom of the bluff was full of uprooted trees. The power of Pentecost will uproot everything that is not rooted in Christ.
The 5 Alarm Sirens Going Off In Heaven Vision
Today, as I laid down to rest, I heard a 5-alarm siren going off in the Spirit. Instantly I am standing in heaven on one of the streets in the midst of the heavenly city. I see a lot of activity, but it was not hurried. People were standing and talking in various places. Angels were busy with duties and going to different places. As I watched, I heard the 5 alarms going off, one by one. As they blew loudly, everyone stopped talking on the street. The angels also stopped, and then they began to hurry off in the direction of the blasts.
I asked one of the angels who sped by what was happening. He stopped to answer me. He said, “It is the signal for the release of the 5 alarm fires. It is coming to the earth. It is on the way.” I asked him, “Where is the fire going to be?” He smiled and shook his head. He said, “No…It is going to be everywhere. It will be in the wind. It will be in the rains. It will burn up all that still restrains. Prepare for great Glory and for great Change, the fires will thoroughly rearrange.” Then he took off running down the street. - I was back in my room.
“I Have Spring
Surprises for Those Willing to Step Out and March Forth in March”
March 6, 2015
I heard the Lord say, “I have Spring surprises for those
willing to step out and march forth in March.” He then said, “I have surprises
waiting for those who move in faith and in faithfulness. I have Spring surprises
opening the way into May. I have surprise alignments, and surprise assignments,
and your faithfulness to move obediently with Me, will unlock the necessary
advancements for you to participate in heaven’s victories. I have new alignments
and new assignments which will break the hold of the old molds, which will
release fresh revelation and clearer vision into My Body for My higher purposes
for them to be realized. This will catapult them into powerful victories and
advancements in their areas.”
“What I allowed to come to the surface in your lives through this winter was to provoke you to rise up and to soundly defeat those things that continually hinder your progress, which also will prevent you from entering those things that will unfold this Spring. The old within you cannot move into the new. So, it is My Grace that is firmly challenging you to break forth into new arenas of faith, and urges to move in obedience to Me, so you can now walk securely into higher positions of victory. Pick up the weapons of your warfare and wage a good warfare with Me! Today is the day of your full victory!”
“You must each fully realize, I will not have My People to continue languishing in their sins, and stagnant in the hold of their pasts anymore. I am allowing the escalation of the spiritual war; and either My People will move with Me now into healthy lifestyles of faith and liberty, or they will fall in the greater battles that are just ahead. Many base their obedience to Me upon their own personal comfort levels, or to when it suits them, or is convenient, and this is the very reason they shall never fully enter in. I am now sifting and separating My faithful men, and they shall be the ones who shall advance, to now begin.”
“I am ushering in new Spring Alignments and Assignments. These spiritual shifts will separate those who are to become My Mighty Men. I also will not tolerate the acts of disharmony and disunity anymore that are operating in My Ranks. I have signaled the arrival of the new leader-ships, but many have not listened to them, so My angelic forces have come to initiate the new corporate flows. Much more of the old regime will shortly leave the folds. The greater shifting and the sifting in March has begun, and My New Leader-ships shall lead My Body into the Deeper Paths that await them all in May.”
“Do not bemoan those I will move, nor misjudge those that are sifted, nor those that are shifted, or those that are positionally lifted. You are to love them all, for I know where each one fits, for each level of growth, and also for corporate function. Every one of My People shall move into the placements and positions that they are ready for. I have a detailed plan, and My Hands shall direct My Body into every change ahead, through every challenge that will come as a result of the new that I have brought you fully into. So, I am stepping you through the maturity process so that My Church- My Body- will be made fully ready, so that My Harvest can be faithfully and fully be brought in.”
Chapters for the month of March, leading up to and through May:
“Heavenly Keys Are
Being Given To The Sons On Earth”
February 20, 2019
The earth is groaning under the weight of sin, and the
peoples of the earth are groaning under the weight of sin. The Father is looking
for the Sons to awaken and to ask Him for the Keys to bring deliverance to the
captives. Heaven is open to His Sons, but not all will enter in to inquire of
the Lord for the welfare of the earth. It is time for governmental change. The
weight of sin, and the fruit of sin must be dealt with, for the sake of the
Keys of Authority:
Romans 8:23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves too, who have andenjoy the first fruits of the [Holy] Spirit [a foretaste of the blissful things to come] groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies [from sensuality and the grave, which will reveal] our adoption (our manifestation as God’s sons).
Isaiah 22:22 And the (governmental) key of the house of David I will lay upon his shoulder; he shall open and no one shall shut, he shall shut and no one shall open.
EXP: I will put the key to the house of David [a sign of authority, indicating access to the king; Rev. 3:7] around his neck. If he opens a door, no one will be able to close it; if he closes a door, no one will be able to open it.
Revelations 3:7 “Write this to the ·angel [messenger; see 1:20] of the church in Philadelphia. “This is what the One who is holy and true, who holds the key of David [ the resurrected Jesus; holding the key of David signifies access to the king; Is. 22:22], says. When he opens a door, no one can close it. And when he closes it, no one can open it [ Jesus controls access to God].
Keys of Access:
There are also Keys of Access being given, which will open strategic governmental spiritual pathways, which will enable the believers to walk into higher realms and in the authority that the Father desires that they embody. New perspectives are being unfolded which will cause a shift in the church’s understanding of their authority and their higher functioning role in the heavens, to be able to affect the earth.
Every available heavenly and earthly resource waits for those who are maturing and who are seeking for God’s directives to be able to fully affect our generation. The Lord has plenty of supply for His People. The Sons are emerging upon the earth, and it is time to unlock this generation to bring a global realignment, and true direction which will also bring release to the earth itself.
Zechariah 3:7 Thus says the Lord of hosts: If you will walk in My ways and keep My charge, then also you shall rule My house and have charge of My courts, and I will give you access [to My presence] and places to walk among these who stand here.
Genesis 6:12 And God looked upon the world and saw how degenerate, debased, and vicious it was, for all humanity had corrupted their way upon the earth and lost their true direction.
Isaiah 52:10 The Lord has made bare His holy arm before the eyes of all the nations [revealing Himself as the One by Whose direction the redemption of Israel from captivity is accomplished], and all the ends of the earth shall witness the salvation of our God.
Keys of Wisdom:
The Father is listening to the Sons who are asking for wisdom for their areas. Keys of Wisdom are being released from heaven now to directly affect the earth to bring it fully into Heaven’s purposes. This is a time to ask, and to receive, and to also respond in obedience to heaven’s directives that are being released now.
Luke 11:52 Woe to you, lawyers (experts in the Mosaic Law)! For you have taken away the key to knowledge; you did not go in yourselves, and you hindered and prevented those who were entering.
The Keys to the House of God are being entrusted to the Sons. Let the Sons arise with the keys of wisdom in their mouths and in their hands, and establish the governmental destiny of the people of nations of the earth.
Jeremiah 29:11 I say this because I know ·what [ the plans] I am planning for you,” says the Lord. “I have ·good plans for you [ plans for your peace/security], not plans ·to hurt you [ for your harm]. I will give you hope and a good future.
Keys of Destinies: Unlocking the destiny scroll of the nations:
Keys are now available to unlock nations, cities, and peoples. They are being given to those who have developed the mature character of the Son, and who resonate the heart of the Father. The Father wants to open up governmental realms for us, so that we can agree with heavens plans for the earth. It is time to access the higher courts and receive the scrolls, and to walk in the fullness of the Spirit to change this generation.
God has a scroll written for each person, and for every nation that is birthed into the earth. The enemy has corrupted, changed, and/or stolen many of those original scrolls. When a nation or people disobey and reject the Lord’s will for them, then the enemy steals their scroll and corrupts it, or replaces it with another.
The Fire of God is falling now to fully burn up the roots of the false to reveal and to establish the true destinies that He has ordained. Generations continue to sleep on in their ignorance, and the people perish under the weight and fruit of sin and rebellion. Nations have lost their direction, their identity, their hope and vision for the future. It is time to apprehend the scrolls that have been stolen and corrupted, so that Truth can realign the nations and give hope, freedom, and fresh vision to the peoples.
Genesis 6:12 And God looked upon the world and saw how degenerate, debased, and vicious it was, for all humanity had corrupted their way upon the earth and lost their true direction. AMP
Keys bring divine release, justice, and vindication to the people of the earth.
The Glory is exposing every root of darkness for what it truly is, so that the demonic strongholds can be destroyed. The earth is responding to the rising of the true Sons. It’s time to use the revelatory keys to access the governmental gates, to also unlock the people of the earth so they can turn to the Lord again, and obtain the rightful inheritance that is theirs.
Daniel 10:10 So I took the small scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it. In my mouth it tasted sweet as honey, but after I ate it, it was ·sour [bitter] in my stomach. 11 Then I was told, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages, and kings [ he must share the word he just received].” EXP
Psalms 7:6 Arise, O Lord, in Your anger; lift up Yourself against the rage of my enemies; and awake [and stir up] for me the justice and vindication [that] You have commanded. 7 Let the assembly of the peoples be gathered about You, and return on high over them. AMP
EXP: Gather the ·nations [assembly/congregations of the peoples] around you and ·rule [or take a seat over; return] them from ·above [on high].
“The 3 Stages of
Transition and Ascension Vision”
January 8, 2015
The Lord gave me a vision that
is parabolic in its meaning for us all. It speaks of the challenges and the
transitions which the Lord will allow to come over the church in the next three
years (2015-2017), and it also speaks of the release of the wisdom of the deeper
purposes the Lord has for us within those necessary changes, which is intended
to force us all higher so that we can fulfill our mandates for the Harvest.
I saw a silver plane flying high in the sky, and it was encountering weather problems as the fog was hindering it’s view in the air. The pilots were forced to use their navigational instruments for their view was limited through the window. I saw that they were getting really close to a large mountain just ahead and they needed to gain more altitude to miss its peaks. At the last minute one of the pilots saw the mountain as the fog broke for a minute, and they panicked and pulled hard on their steering gears, and the plane started climbing erratically in a hard pull.
The plane just clipped the tip of the mountain with its underbelly, and the mountain tore a long gash under its body as it tried to go over the top. As this happened, the plane’s skin was literally unzipped and peeled off by the scraping, but I saw that the plane still did manage to make it over the mountain without crashing, but it had lost its outer skin and some mechanical capabilities in the process.
I saw that as the skin was stripped off by the impact, a red outer skin supernaturally came around the plane. The plane was still able to fly, but it had been physically changed by the encounter with the mountain. The pilots and the passengers were shaken up, but the pilots were more cautious now in their flight. The fog was now underneath them, and they decided to continue on with their flight. They flew on nervously, wondering where the new red skin had come from. They wondered if they should radio this in or not.
I then saw another mountain off in the distance, and I wondered if the pilots would see this one ahead of time. I could see that the 2 pilots were discussing the previous impact, and were checking out all of their other systems one at a time, and were also pre-occupied with also keeping the staff and passengers assured. One of the pilots finally looked up and he saw the next mountain, and signaled to the other pilot to start climbing. The other pilot was amazed at the reality of another mountain, since this was not an area for multiple mountains.
He began to pull up on his levers, but the plane hesitated and the pilot frantically pulled even harder, and finally after some resistance, the plane started to climb. The previous climb and accident had caused some issues in the mechanical system they failed to notice. The other pilot started to tell the staff and passengers to buckle up and stay seated again. The plane groaned loudly under the hard, steep climb into the higher altitudes, and it also clipped the top of the mountain peak, and again just like before, it’s under belly was sliced into.
The plane violently shuddered and the skin of the plane was being ripped open even deeper and torn off by the higher winds. Eventually the pilots got the plane stable as it again barely cleared the mountain without crashing, but there was obvious changes to the plane after this impact that caused them to be alarmed. Wind was now blowing loudly through the cabin, and this caused things to be tossed around and luggage was even tossed within the plane, much to the passengers and attendant’s dismay. The pilots were about to radio for help when an amazing thing happened.
I saw new skin grow over the plane again, and this time it was a radiant translucent color, much like a skin of milky light, that also shimmered. The pilots were now beyond shocked, and the plane now stabilized and the wind stopped blowing within the cabins. The mess that was made inside the cabins was now gone, and the passengers were all dressed and nicely kempt too, and were amazed. Everything was swept clean inside, as if nothing had ever happened. The passengers looked out the windows to see what had happened. The pilots did not know what to do next, but decided to keep going to their destination since the plane was still flying and everything was okay.
I watched as they flew for onwards awhile, then I saw a magnificent mountain just ahead of them. It towered at an even higher altitude than they were currently on. This mountain was also made of the same translucent milky material as the plane was, and it radiated light from somewhere within the mountain. It was now getting dark, for they had been flying for a long time. So the pilots headed for the mountain, climbing steadily as they went easily, because it lit up the sky.
When they got nearer to the mountain, they pulled on their instruments again, intending to go over the top of this one too, but their instruments didn’t work now. There was no response at all. They looked at each other in amazement and wondered what to do now. They could not steer away, and they could not go over the mountain. They then realized that they were all on a course that could not be changed. I wondered what would happen to them as I watched. I then saw the plane fly right into the mountain and disappeared. The plane and the mountain had now become one.
*** The interpretation is obvious.
There are challenges and changes coming to the Body of Christ (the plane) over the next three years, 2015 to 2017, which will force us all to climb higher in the Spirit, but which will also strip away all religious facades, masks, weaknesses and sins. There will be a period of the removing of all carnal/soulish wisdom and worldly learning that we have been influenced by, and the removing of any baggage and mistaken ideals which hold us down to the lower levels. The Father is going to strip away all than hinders us, all that we rely upon that impedes us from going higher. He will also remove all that is not currently needed for where we are going.
Man does not build the Mountain of the Lord, but it is built by God, and it functions upon the Eternal Kingdom principles of the Father. There are new lessons, which we will have to learn as we rise in each new level. This course change ahead of us will restructure the church from the way she currently operates. It will also bring the newly birthed Habitation into full alignment, and will mature her into what she is truly to become in our generation.
It is time to hold things loosely, and to ask the Father for Hs council. If we heed the council that comes to us from behind the veil, we can navigate these coming years easily and without a lot of impact to ourselves personally. If we ask Him to change us now, we will soar through the transition phases into higher realms unaffected. The transformation process will shake many, so we must help those around us walk out the changes. It is time to build, and to move in and with His Kingdom, on the earth. It is elevation time!
Ezekiel 17:22 Thus says the Lord God: I Myself will take a twig from the lofty top of the cedar and will set it out; I will crop off from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one and will plant it upon a mountain high and exalted.23 On the mountain height of Israel will I plant it, that it may bring forth boughs and bear fruit and be a noble cedar, and under it shall dwell all birds of every feather; in the shade of its branches they shall nestle and find rest.
Micah 4:1 But in the latter days it shall come to pass that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains; and it shall be exalted above the hills, and peoples shall flow to it. 2 And many nations shall come and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that He may teach us His ways, and we may walk in His paths. For the law shall go forth out of Zion and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 3 And He shall judge between many peoples and shall decide for strong nations afar off, and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
"The Bridal Garments
Room Experience "
January 6, 2015
In the vision experience, I am walking in the
Heavenly City. I see that there is activity everywhere and an atmosphere of awe
of God permeates everything. I am walking on the familiar golden cobblestones of
light, and each cobblestone is shining transparently. I then find myself turning
down a very narrow street, and the walls of the buildings on this street all
vibrate with life. The various vibrations from the whole street sound to me like
a song being composed. Every building is filled with light, and each is
constructed unique to its purpose.
As I am walking, I see an archway ahead of me that has a door under it. The beauty of the roses in the archway captivates my eyes. Each stone in the archway is filled with light, and each one has a rose carved into it that shines with a unique brilliance. I curiously reached out to the door under the archway to inspect what might be on the other side, and as I do the door suddenly opens before me. I walk into a foyer-like room, and in front of me is another archway that leads into another area. I then walk through the second archway, and the light within is so bright that I cannot see. I stood there for a moment till my eyes adjusted to the glory in that room. When I could see, I was astounded by the size of the room, as it went very far in each direction.
The room was filled with rows and rows of tables. At every table were many angels working. I looked closer, and could see that they were all making garments. There was an air of excitement in the room as the angels all worked on the garments, and it felt like the whole city itself was vibrating in agreement with them. The angels were working on garments, and I knew that each garment was unique. The angels were all in various stages of assembly, and the care they took and the respect for their task was very touching to me. I looked, and I saw one angel hold up in my view what looked to me to be a needle of light, and it was threaded by strands of light that looked like minute tubes, and they sewed the needle through the fabric till it became a completed garment.
An angel stood at the ends of each of the tables, one angel on each side. When a garment was completed, it was given to the angels standing at either end, which then took the completed garment and walked past the rows of tables until they reached the last row. The angel then stopped and gave the garments to the waiting angels that were sitting there. I wondered to myself what the last row of tables was doing. Just then, a voice said to me, “Come and see.” I turned to see who spoke and it was the angel named Wisdom. I stood there looking at her and understood that it is wisdom that gives us understanding. Wisdom smiled, and said again to me, “Come.” I followed wisdom past each row of tables until we got to the last row, and then we stopped.
I saw that the last rows of tables were assigned to do something else than assembling garments. The angels stood waiting with excitement until the other angels brought them the garments. On their tables were piles of various jewels, and I recognized some of the jewels. I saw pearls of all hues and various levels of luminescence. I saw diamonds of all shapes and sizes that flashed with internal fire, and there were other heavenly stones that I did not recognize. The angels discussed where to place the stones amongst themselves. Each garment was different, and the placement of the stones was determined by its future owners purpose. The angels who handled the garments were in awe and they held them tenderly. I suddenly realized that these were wedding dresses being assembled.
“You are correct”, Wisdom said. “They are making wedding dresses for the bride. The bride is waking up in your days, and she is about to make herself ready.” Wisdom then took me by the hand and said, “You each are called to awaken many. You must help them to get themselves ready. The Father is coming to change them, and to fully inhabit them, for they shall fully overcome the world, and they shall be found worthy to stand before men and to reveal the knowledge of Him. It is time for the harvest to accelerate, and it is time for you each to arise and mobilize for the hour is late. The Bridegroom is coming fully into your Gates. Rise up now and shine, for your Light has come, and the Glory of the Lord shall rise upon you and also break outwards from you as a brilliant garment of Glory, such as you see also being made here. Get ready- Get ready- Get ready! The bride must fully awaken and get herself ready!”
When the vision ended, I looked up scriptures on the heavenly wedding garments being prepared, and the theme of the bride awakening and getting herself ready:
Matthew 25:1 Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish (thoughtless, without forethought) and five were wise (sensible, intelligent, and prudent). 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they did not take any [extra] oil with them; 4 But the wise took flasks of oil along with them [also] with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom lingered and was slow in coming, they all began nodding their heads, and they fell asleep. 6 But at midnight there was a shout, Behold, the bridegroom! Go out to meet him! 7 Then all those virgins got up and put their own lamps in order. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out. 9 But the wise replied, There will not be enough for us and for you; go instead to the dealers and buy for yourselves. 10 But while they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were prepared went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut. 11 Later the other virgins also came and said, Lord, Lord, open [the door] to us! 12 But He replied, I solemnly declare to you, I do not know you [I am not acquainted with you]. 13 Watch therefore [give strict attention and be cautious and active], for you know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man will come.
Is 62:1 For Zion’s sake will I [Isaiah] not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest until her imputed righteousness and vindication go forth as brightness, and her salvation radiates as does a burning torch. 2 And the nations shall see your righteousness and vindication [your rightness and justice—not your own, but His ascribed to you], and all kings shall behold your salvation and glory; and you shall be called by a new name which the mouth of the Lord shall name. 3 You shall also be [so beautiful and prosperous as to be thought of as] a crown of glory and honor in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem [exceedingly beautiful] in the hand of your God. 4 You [Judah] shall no more be termed Forsaken, nor shall your land be called Desolate any more. But you shall be called Hephzibah [My delight is in her], and your land be called Beulah [married]; for the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married [owned and protected by the Lord].
Is 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul will exult in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 11 For as [surely as] the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring forth, so [surely] the Lord God will cause rightness and justice and praise to spring forth before all the nations [through the self-fulfilling power of His word].
Song of Songs 8:11 Solomon had a vineyard at Baal-hamon; he let out the vineyard to keepers; everyone was to bring him a thousand pieces of silver for its fruit. 12 You, O Solomon, can have your thousand [pieces of silver], and those who tend the fruit of it two hundred; but my vineyard, which is mine [with all its radiant joy], is before me! 13 O you who dwell in the gardens, your companions have been listening to your voice—now cause me to hear it. 14 [Joyfully the radiant bride turned to him, the one altogether lovely, the chief among ten thousand to her soul, and with unconcealed eagerness to begin her life of sweet companionship with him, she answered] Make haste, my beloved, and come quickly, like a gazelle or a young hart [and take me to our waiting home] upon the mountains of spices.
Revelations 19:6 After that I heard what sounded like the shout of a vast throng, like the boom of many pounding waves, and like the roar of terrific and mighty peals of thunder, exclaiming, Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! For now the Lord our God the Omnipotent (the All-Ruler) reigns! 7 Let us rejoice and shout for joy [exulting and triumphant]! Let us celebrate and ascribe to Him glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb [at last] has come, and His bride has prepared herself. 8 She has been permitted to dress in fine (radiant) linen, dazzling and white—for the fine linen is (signifies, represents) the righteousness (the upright, just, and godly living, deeds, and conduct, and right standing with God) of the saints (God’s holy people). 9 Then [the angel] said to me, Write this down: Blessed (happy, to be envied) are those who are summoned (invited, called) to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me [further], These are the true words (the genuine and exact declarations) of God.
Revelations 21:1 Then I saw a new sky (heaven) and a new earth, for the former sky and the former earth had passed away (vanished), and there no longer existed any sea. 2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her husband; 3 Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God. 4 God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away. 5 And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine). 6 And He [further] said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I [Myself] will give water without price from the fountain (springs) of the water of Life. 7 He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.
Revelations 22:5 And there shall be no more night; they have no need for lamplight or sunlight, for the Lord God will illuminate them and be their light, and they shall reign [as kings] forever and ever (through the eternities of the eternities). 6 And he [of the seven angels further] said to me, These statements are reliable (worthy of confidence) and genuine (true). And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent His messenger (angel) to make known and exhibit to His servants what must soon come to pass.
“I Am Going To Bend Your Bow!” – 01-02-15
Today the Lord spoke to my
heart, and said, “I am going to bend your bow!” I thought to myself, “bend my
bow?” I went to my computer and looked up several scriptures regarding bending
bows and the use of bows. The Lord loves to speak in pictures and parables to
illustrate truths to us, to help us understand the journey ahead of us.
2 Samuel 22 and Psalms 18 reveal powerful illustrations of the ways in which God will train us for war and for victory. For the sake of time, I will post the shorter version below: But study the whole chapters for they reveal much for the coming years ahead of us. We have much to recover, to redeem, and to apprehend for the Kingdom.
2 Samuel 22:29 For You, O Lord, are my Lamp; the Lord lightens my darkness.30 For by You I run through a troop; by my God I leap over a wall. 31 As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried. He is a Shield to all those who trust and take refuge in Him. 32 For who is God but the Lord? And who is a Rock except our God? 33 God is my strong Fortress; He guides the blameless in His way and sets him free. 34 He makes my feet like the hinds’ [firm and able]; He sets me secure and confident upon the heights. 35 He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. 36 You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; and Your condescension and gentleness have made me great. 37 You have enlarged my steps under me, so that my feet have not slipped. 38 I have pursued my enemies and destroyed them; and I did not turn back until they were consumed.
Psalms 18:33 He makes my feet like hinds’ feet [able to stand firmly or make progress on the dangerous heights of testing and trouble]; He sets me securely upon my high places.
We personally grow and spiritually advance the most under times of extreme testing and intense trials. Our very thoughts/words will determine whether we fail or succeed in the allotted time that we are given for the assignment. These are opportunities for us to achieve tremendous victories in the earth and in the realm of the Spirit.
The Bow: the tongue.
The Arrows: the words that are spoken forth. (Good or bad)
Jeremiah 9:3 And they bend their tongue, [which is] their bow for the lies [they shoot]. And not according to faithfulness do they rule and become strong in the land; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they do not know and understand and acknowledge Me, says the Lord.
The revelatory word is to be within our minds, our hearts, and in our mouths at all times. The Lord will inspire us to speak as His very oracles, to declare forth His arrows to pierce the enemy and to destroy his works.
Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise up for them a prophet (Prophet) from among their brethren like you, and will put My words in his mouth; and he shall speak to them all that I command him.
Deuteronomy 30:14 But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your mind and in your heart, so that you can do it.
Isaiah 55:11 So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
As we speak under the authority of the Lord, our bow (tongue) releases the arrows (the words) outward into the atmosphere around us to accomplish the Lord’s purposes. Our obedience is very important to the Lord.
Zechariah 9:1 The burden or oracle (the thing to be lifted up) of the word of the Lord is against the land of Hadrach [in Syria], and Damascus shall be its resting place, for the Lord has an eye upon mankind as upon all the tribes of Israel,2 And Hamath also, which borders on [Damascus], Tyre with Sidon, though they are very wise. 3 And Tyre has built herself a stronghold [on an island a half mile from the shore, which seems impregnable], and heaped up silver like dust and fine gold like the mire of the streets. 4 Behold, the Lord will cast her out anddispossess her; He will smite her power in the sea and into it and [Tyre] shall be devoured by fire. 5 [The strong cities of Philistia] shall see it and fear; Ashkelon, Gaza also, and be sorely pained, and Ekron, for her confidence and expectation shall be put to shame, and a king [monarchial government] shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited. 6 And a mongrel people shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will put an end to the pride of the Philistines. 7 And I will take out of [the Philistines’] mouths and from between their teeth the abominable idolatrous sacrifices eaten with the blood. And they too shall remain and be a remnant for our God, and they shall be like chieftains (the head over a thousand) in Judah, and Ekron shall be like one of the Jebusites [who at last were merged and had lost their identity in Israel]. 8 Then I will encamp about My house as a guard or a garrison so that none shall march back and forth, and no oppressor or demanding collector shall again overrun them, for now My eyes are upon them. 9 Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O Daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King comes to you; He is [uncompromisingly] just and having salvation [triumphant and victorious], patient, meek, lowly, and riding on a donkey, upon a colt, the foal of a donkey. 10 And I will cut off andexterminate the war chariot from Ephraim and the [war] horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off; and He shall speak the word and peace shall come to the nations, and His dominion shall be from the [Mediterranean] Sea to [any other] sea, and from the River [Euphrates] to the ends of the earth! 11 As for you also, because of and for the sake of the [covenant of the Lord with His people, which was sealed with sprinkled] covenant blood, I have released andsent forth your imprisoned people out of the waterless pit. 12 Return to the stronghold [of security and prosperity], you prisoners of hope; even today do I declare that I will restore double your former prosperity to you. 13 For I have bent Judah for Myself as My bow, filled the bow with Ephraim as My arrow, and will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece, and will make you [Israel] as the sword of a mighty man. 14 And the Lord shall be seen over them and His arrow shall go forth as the lightning, and the Lord God will blow the trumpet and will go forth in the windstorms of the south. 15 The Lord of hosts shall defend and protect them; and they shall devour and they shall tread on [their fallen enemies] as on slingstones [that have missed their aim], and they shall drink [of victory] and be noisy and turbulent as from wine and become full like bowls [used to catch the sacrificial blood], like the corners of the [sacrificial] altar. 16 And the Lord their God will save them on that day as the flock of His people, for they shall be as the [precious] jewels of a crown, lifted high over andshining glitteringly upon His land. 17 For how great is God’s goodness and how great is His beauty! And how great [He will make Israel’s] goodliness and [Israel’s] beauty! Grain shall make the young men thrive and fresh wine the maidens.
1 Chronicles 11:11 David’s 30 mighty men, and the 30 captains: (The age of maturity is 30)
And this is the number [thirty, and list] of David’s mighty men: Jashobeam, a Hachmonite, the chief of the Thirty [captains]. He lifted up his spear against 300, whom he slew at one time.
The Lord is not only bringing forth the Mighty men and women of valor into the forefront, but He is also setting them in their new positions, and training them for special duties and assignments ahead of them. Below are some of the key verses for us to look at. Study the whole chapter for more insights into the other weapons they used.
1 Chronicles 12:1 These are the ones who came to David at Ziklag, while he yet concealed himself because of Saul son of Kish; they were among the mighty men, his helpers in war. 2 They were bowmen and could use the right hand or the left to sling stones or shoot arrows from the bow; they were of Saul’s kinsmen of Benjamin. 14 These Gadites were officers of the army. The lesser was equal to and over a hundred, and the greater equal to and over a thousand. 15 These are the men who went over the Jordan in the first month when it had overflowed all its banks, and put to flight all those in the valleys, east and west.16 There came some of the men of Benjamin and Judah to the stronghold to David. 17 David went out to meet them and said to them, If you have come peaceably to me to help me, my heart shall be knit to you; but if you have come to betray me to my adversaries, although there is no violence or wrong in my hands, may the God of our fathers look upon and rebuke you.18 Then the Spirit came upon Amasai, who was chief of the captains, and he said, Yours we are, David, and on your side, you son of Jesse! Peace, peace be to you, and peace be to your helpers, for your God helps you. Then David received them and made them officers of his troops. 33 Of Zebulun, 50,000 experienced troops, fitted out with all kinds of weapons and instruments of war that could order and set the battle in array, men not of double purpose but stable and trustworthy. 38 All these, being men of war arrayed in battle order, came with a perfect andsincere heart to Hebron to make David king over all Israel; and all the rest also of Israel were of one mind to make David king.
The new emerging leaders will be knit together from their very soul and heart, and they will walk in like vision and in unified purpose. Together, they will be a formidable force, the very army of the Lord. They will rout out and destroy every enemy, and take back that which belongs to the Kingdom of the Lord, and establish His true Habitations in every land.
It's time to bend your bow!
