(… and more) Voices Of Hope Broadcast 6.22.21
“But the Lord is with me as a dread warrior; therefore my persecutors will stumble; they will not overcome me. They will be greatly shamed, for they will not succeed. Their eternal dishonor will never be forgotten.” Jeremiah 20:11
On Friday, July 10, 2020 at 1:20 a.m. I woke up from a very intense and sobering dream. In the dream I had walked out of my parents former house that we lived in for many years. I locked the door behind me, and when I turned to move forward to leave as I looked across the street I realized how dark it was. I started to simultaneously see in the Spirit in the dream and I saw elementary students getting ready for school across the street early in the morning, and at the same time I saw and heard the sound of the trumpet. The trumpet was in the sky and resembled a round small military bugle, like that of the civil war. My immediate thought was it was autumn when the time changes and we “fall back”, otherwise known as daylight savings time. Within moments, almost instantly the darkness increased and I felt an overwhelming pressure of fear in the atmosphere that was moving toward me quickly, and soon became dreadful. I turned back to unlock the door but it had become so dark in the matter of seconds that I could not even see my hand in front of my face or my keys. I saw in the Spirit beyond the door and could see that my grandmother (who had never lived with us in the natural), Mary Magdalene, was coming to my rescue. I saw her and heard her voice excitedly and lovingly exclaim, “Wait now, I’m coming!”. Here I awoke out of the dream alarmed and rebuking the thick darkness.
In the dream I had a knowing it was the end of September, yet in the natural daylight savings in the States this year is not until November 1, 2020. I believe this is revealing a window of time when the intense darkness will increase, and yet also a grace warning that we may prepare in the natural and in the Spirit. When the Lord reveals the plans of the enemy we have the ability to rise up in the opposite spirit and thwart his plans just like a real battle. The Lord shows us the enemies plans so we can pray against them, and that we may petition for Heaven’s strategy to be made known to us. When we are seated in Heavenly places we will always agree with the will of God and it is from this position we bring Heaven to earth and decree His goodness and restoration. Yet in balance, when I wrestled with Lord over sharing this dream and the vision below, He corrected me with words He had spoken to Ezekiel regarding being an obedient watchman, “The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, speak to your people and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman, and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not heed the warning and the sword comes and takes their life, their blood will be on their own head.” vs 1-4 of Ezekiel 33:1-20. And yet still, the prophets of old often negotiated with God!
This is the first time I have heard the Spirit call in the sound of the trumpet, and I carefully and prayerfully have been writing according to what would bring the most edification yet also deliver the warning message. As I have been meditating on this for weeks now, I believe the Lord was highlighting specifics of the dream that are important for its interpretation. The home address was 17381 Wiltshire Blvd, Lathrup Village and at the end of our street was a barricade. The other side of the barricade was another city, Southfield, and in fact Lathrup Village was originally acquired as property within the larger city of Southfield by Louise Lathrup Kelley in 1923 who ‘conceived and carried out its unique development’. You were able to walk into the city of Southfield from our street as the sidewalk continued, but obviously you would be unable to drive through as the barricade served as a divide between the cities. There was only one entrance driving down our street because of the barricade, our house was on the right side of the street making the vision of children and the trumpet on the left side of the street.
The meaning of the name Louise can be translated ‘famous warrior’ or ‘famous in battle’. Lathrup surname originated in Yorkshire (England) in the East Riding were they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. Lathrup can also be translated – ‘man from the farm with the barn, or barn’. Kelley surname means ‘descendant of war’, ‘strife’, or ‘contention’ (houseofnames.com).
1923 is the year Louise Lathrup Kelley acquired property ‘conceived and carried out its unique development’. Strong’s number 1923 in Hebrew is Hadar – magnificence, honor, majesty. Strong’s number 1923 in Greek is Epigrapho – to inscribe (physically or mentally): inscription, write in. The meaning of the address 17381 which provided an entry way to safety and provision; 1 “oneness of the Godhead”; 7 “completeness” & “perfection”; 3 “The Holy Spirit” & “three-fold cord not easily broken”; 8 “new beginnings”; 1 “oneness of Godhead” (biblestudy.org). The meaning of Wiltshire is a place-name and “means shire centered on the Wilton”. Wilton means “farm where the willow trees grow”. (houseofnames.com).
The Warrior and The Key
A famous Warrior conceived in honor and wrapped in majesty who is magnificent in battle is in the East Riding and holds a family seat as Lord of the Manor (Revelation 19:11). This famous Warrior also owns a farm with a barn (Psalm 50:10), that serves as provision for those who He has inscribed on His heart and bear His last Name; these are His descendants of war enduring strife and contention in the city. Though there be a great divide, there is a refuge in the small city within the larger city, a secret place. There is only one way to arrive at the address, and only one key that will open the door in unforeseen darkness.
Psalm 91:1 “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].” I heard in the Spirit, “The Lord is looking for His covenant keepers”. Our natural key’s will not unlock the door to the secret place, but rather this key is seen with the spiritual eye, and it looks like a covenant ring and it is named the key of intimacy. In the Hebrew, the word for dwells is yashab, Strong’s 3427; to sit, remain, dwell. Additional words used in the definition are married and marrying. The secret place of protection is a place for those who are married to the presence of God. Many find themselves teetering from a stance of love and believing the promises of God back to fear struggling to ward off the lies of the enemy, they are unstable. But as we read above, our stability comes from dwelling. The wise warrior will choose the empowerment of union. Paul wrote of this union and of its importance one verse prior to the instruction of wearing the full armor. “In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].” Ephesians 6:10.
If you will dwell in secret place of the Most High (located at 17381) in oneness with the Godhead (1), He will complete and perfect His way in your life (7) as you come into full agreement with the Triune (3) and cultivate together new beginnings and new plans (8) blessed in the seal of harmonious communion (1).
The secret place will be the shelter where intimacy’s key unlocks mysteries, promises and dreams that position you to ‘conceive and carry out unique developments’ and blueprints for the next outpouring, the new wine. We don’t have to be tested by the way of the world; in a season when society is ‘falling back’, when the light is dimmer, when evil relentlessly pursues the innocent, when there is militant civil unrest and great divides (reference to dream “Southfield” – the civil war began when southern troops bombarded Fort Sumter, S.C. and the military bugle was of civil war era), – it is here, in the center of the chaos there is a way of escape, a hideaway named The Secret Place. Remembering their covenant ring, the Mary’s, or Mary(ed) (married ones) fall into the presence of the Most High surrounded by His holy flame. (Zechariah 2:5). When our obedient love remains in union here, the promises of God become infused into our being as we are captivated by His passionate flames. “The words and promises of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified and tested seven times over.” Psalm 12:6. I had the above dream July 10th which numerically speaks of complete testing. The later half of this word which is from a vision was received on July 19th, and between the two encounters we have nine days which numerically speaks of complete birthing. The secret place is not only a refuge, but a guarded place for testing and a protective place for birthing. Allow Him to perfect and complete the good work He began in you. (Philippians 1:6). Choose the Lord’s testing in the secret place and unseen riches will be born.
The Warrior Dwells In and Among You
The Warrior dwells in and among you, be empowered through your union with Him! We love because He first loved us and it is our Warrior King’s delight to marry us. “I will set My dwelling in and among you, and My soul shall not despise or reject or separate itself from you. And I will walk in and with and among you and will be your God, and you shall be My people.” Leviticus 26:11-12. This is His promise to us when we keep His covenant and remain and abide in Him. “The LORD will fight for you while you [only need to] keep silent and remain calm.” Exodus 14:14.
The dread of the enemy can not compare to the dread of our Warrior King. He wars for your heart and is jealous for His Bride; His burning heart for you warrants an arrest on all that hinders you from His love. Our Warrior King defeated hell and the grave to live eternally with you! “For His love for you is a living and consuming flame, sealing you as a prisoner of His love. His passion for you is stronger than the chains of death and the grave.” (pharphasing Song of Solomon 8:6). “But the Lord is with me as a dread warrior; therefore my persecutors will stumble; they will not overcome me. They will be greatly shamed, for they will not succeed. Their eternal dishonor will never be forgotten.” Jeremiah 20:11. I believe Jeremiah 20:11 is the anthem of the dream, “Wait Now, I’m Coming!” and prophetically tied we can interpret the Lord’s time and date stamp so specifically. The “fall back” date is 11.01.20, and read backwards is 20.11, Jeremiah 20:11 scripture reference. The remaining numbers from the date 11.01.2020 are 1, and 20, which is the time stamp of the dream 1:20 a.m.
The Warrior Who Atones and Shelters You
February 29, 2020 on leap day the Lord spoke to me and said He is “synching us with the seasons and aligning us with the Son.” Jewish time is lunisolar, and keeps in sync with the cycles of the sun and moon. Since then I have repeatedly seen a vision of the earth in His hands like a Rubik’s cube only circular and solid in color. With one hand on top of the earth and one on the bottom He pushes the two pieces of the earth down and counter clockwise so they will ‘click and lock’. It is an ongoing process, as if each turn or time He does this there is progress, but it has yet to ‘lock in’. In vision the Lord is never hurried, and when He turns counter clockwise it always seems to be in slower motion, you can feel the synching. The Holy Spirit reminded me as I was seeking Him for interpretation for the dream and the vision below to look at the Jewish calendar… and He never ceases to amaze me, the wheel within the wheel!
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year or their “civil year” 5781 begins sundown on September 18, 2020 on the first day of Tishrei and is also known as the “Feast of Trumpets”. In the dream I had a knowing the season was the end of September and heard the sound of the trumpet. “Rosh Hashanah, literally “Head of the Year” in Hebrew, is the beginning of the Jewish new year. It is the first of the High Holidays or “Days of Awe,” ending 10 days later with Yom Kippur. This two-day festival marks the anniversary of human’s creation—and the special relationship between humans and God, the creator. Rosh Hashanah begins with the sounding of the shofar, the ram’s horn, proclaiming God as King of the Universe, just as a trumpet would be sounded at a king’s coronation. In fact, Rosh Hashanah is described in the Torah as Yom Teru’ah, a day of sounding (the Shofar). (Feast of Trumpets) The sound of the shofar is also a call to repentance—to wake up and re-examine our commitment to God and to correct our ways. Thus begins the “Ten Days of Repentance” which ends with Yom Kippur, the “Day of Atonement.” (almanac.com).
Following The Day of Atonement is Sukkot, also called the Festival of Shelters and is a seven day Jewish festival observed in the month of Tishrei. Sukkot dates fall on sundown Friday October 2 through sundown Friday October 9. “On each of the seven days of Sukkot (excluding Shabbat), two aravah branches are bound together with the lulav and hadass. Together with the etrog, these Four Species are then waved in all four directions, plus up and down, to attest to God’s mastery over all of creation, and to symbolically voice a prayer for adequate rainfall over all the Earth’s vegetation in the coming year.” (wikipedia.org). Aravah branches are otherwise know as willow tree branches, now remember the street address Wiltshire is defined as ‘farm where the willow trees grow’!
“During the morning prayer service in the synagogue on Hoshanah Rabbah, after the waving of the Four Species, a separate bundle containing five aravah branches are taken in hand by each worshipper. A series of liturgical verses are read, ending with, “Kol mevasser, mevasser ve-omer” (A voice brings news, brings news and says)—expressing hope for the speedy coming of the Messiah.” (wikipedia.org).
We are on the verge of seeing the holiness, awe and wonder of our King of Splendor like never before. The Church and world will see and experience our Warrior King of Glorious Might in the coming days tangibly and it will be both awe inspiring and frightening. The fear of Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and those who choose to bear His Name will responsibility hearken at the trumpet and heed His call of repentance, “Come up here cries the King, Come up here, sit with Me!”. The Name bearers are directed toward the ‘one way’ and consecrate themselves before they enter the shelter and begin to dwell in the secret place. Abundantly provided for and securely protected the Name bearers prepare and rest in the oil of worship, their days are filled with prayer and decree as they joyfully learn new mysteries. Having grown in the Branch of authority and love they lift up their hands and release Heaven’s covenant of unending love and restoration over all creation for the day of reunion is near. In the Most Holy Place is the sacrificial Lamb, He made atonement for all sins and all the Name bearers weep in adoration, the slain one rose and lives forevermore. Worthy is He, “Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God, The Almighty! The Was, the Is, and the Coming!” (Revelation 4:8).
The Lord is looking for those who carry the fragrance of His oil. It is expensive oil and it will cost you. However when you become a ‘dweller’ and are married to Him, He provides through His presence. This fragrant oil is how He has determined you are a Name bearer. (Matthew 25:1-13). The key of intimacy looks like a covenant ring. “Mary has discovered the one thing most important by choosing to sit at my feet. She is undistracted, and I won’t take this privilege from her.” Luke 10:42. Will you accept the invitation to sit with the King?
When Mary poured out a year’s wages of oil on Jesus’ body it was so extravagant that He promised her whenever the Gospel would be shared this act would be mentioned. “Mary picked up an alabaster jar filled with nearly a liter of extremely rare and costly perfume—the purest extract of nard, and she anointed Jesus’ feet. Then she wiped them dry with her long hair. And the fragrance of the costly oil filled the house.” John 12:3. “When she poured this perfume on My body, she did it to prepare Me for burial. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, wherever this gospel [of salvation] is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told in memory of her [for her act of love and devotion].” Matthew 26:12-13. When the fragrance fills the house, all will know we belong to the King.
I believe the Lord is declaring to us His faithfulness and during these next few months we will experience a great repositioning. We will go from sitting to being sent, from commended to commissioning. For those who have been faithful in the secret place there is an incredible launching in the new year. Symbolically just as in Sukkot there is waving of the two willow tree branches bound with the other three, praying for rainfall for all the earth’s abundance in the coming year – this is the outpouring of God’s presence we have long been waiting and praying for! The final prayer in Sukkot is with five willow branches declaring a voice will bring news of the soon returning King. The five willow branches are always referred to as narrow branches, and I believe the five branches are also symbolic of grace and the five-fold ministry.
The secret place prepares us for the sending just as Mary Magdalene is the first sent one (apostle) after encountering the resurrected Christ, “She has just found him (Jesus), and now she is sent away, but she is sent with a commission. As the ancient church put it, she becomes an apostle to the apostles.” (Biblegateway.com). The five-fold will commission those they have equipped declaring with the Mary’s or married ones together in unity, “make a way, make a way” directing all creation to the ‘only way’, “Look here! He’s coming soon – your Warrior King, Lord of the Manor, the promised One who rides for you and comes in from the East. Most handsome One with fire in His eyes! Prepare! Prepare! Soon we will feast!.”
Wait Now, The Father The King and The Spirit are Coming! The Birth of New Wine in Fire, Power and Love!
On July 19, 2020 I happened to be staying at my grandparents house, the same grandmother Mary Magdalene as mentioned in the dream above. I was in the bedroom when I went into a vision at 8:54 a.m. In the vision it was dark out, and I saw a heaping mound of wood and sticks and a large match reach in from the bottom to create a massive bonfire. As the match was moving in I heard in the Spirit, “John Wimber’s birthday”. I immediately had a knowing that a signifiant move of the Spirit would take place on or around this date, the “birth-day”. On this same day I heard in the Spirit “Deuteronomy 4:12”, “And the Lord spoke to you out of the midst of the fire. You heard the voice of the words, but saw no form; there was only a voice.” A literal interpretation of the vision! However in context the Lord was reminding Moses this is where you encountered my manifest presence, the shekinah glory. This is when I gave you My covenant. Shekinah is from the Hebrew word shakan, and means “to reside or permanently stay”. (chrisitanity.com). I believe the Lord is saying His glory is coming forth from the fire! I have not forgotten my promise to you, it has been tested and this is when I will erupt in power and dwell with you in tangible glory, I am coming in a fullness that you have yet not seen. Again, I had the above dream “Wait Now, I’m Coming” July 10th which numerically speaks of complete testing. This vision of the coming outpouring was received on July 19th, and between the two encounters we have nine days which numerically speaks of complete birthing.
Although I knew John Wimber was an important part of church history, I didn’t recall what exactly he was known for – all that was coming to mind was an association with California. Grapes should have been my clue! As I went to search this out, I discovered Wimber was born February 25, 1934 and his most significant legacy is the Vineyard movement, as he eventually took leadership of the Vineyard churches. Additionally Wimber is known for advocating and teaching the moving in healing, signs and wonders, intimacy with the Holy Spirit, and equipping the Church (https://vineyardusa.org/about/john-wimber/).
Prompted by the Holy Spirit I searched for John Wimber’s birth date on the Hebraic calendar and found a birthday surprise! The month of February falls in the month Adar, the last month in God’s cycle of feasts / yearly cycle and represents the completion of a season. Adar means strength and is known as the most joyful month of the year when Purim is celebrated. Purim is the story of Esther who was chosen to be the queen of Persia because of her beauty. Esther risked her life to go before King Ahasuerus and expose an evil plot of his advisor Haman to destroy the Jewish race. Esther was encouraged by Mordecai to boldly petition the King, “For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?.” Esther 4:14. Esther found favor with the King, the plan was reverted and Haman was hung on the very gallows he built to destroy the Jews. Purim is always celebrated on the 14th day of Adar and this 2021 will begin at sundown on February 25, John Wimber’s birthday!
Another insight in the birthdate 02.25.1934: I found Revelation 2:25 and Strong’s number 1934. Again the month Adar means strong – Strong’s 1934 in Hebrew is hava’ meaning to exist; become, behold. In context the Scripture reference is speaking to the church of Thyatira, who is being admonished for tolerating Jezebel, but to those who have not tolerated the teaching they are beckoned to “hold fast to what you have until I come” (Rev 2:25). I believe toleration of Jezebel is the current position of the unawakened Church, but for those who are awakened in this hour we can hear the Lord saying hold fast, “Wait now, I’m coming!”. If we will live, abide and exist in Him and like Esther address (17381 Wiltshire – willow branch: dwell in secret place of the Most High in oneness with the Godhead, He will complete and perfect His way in your life as you come into full agreement with the Triune and cultivate together new beginnings and new plans blessed in the seal of harmonious communion) and petition His heart boldly in the secret place, if we hold fast to the truth that we have and behold Him here, we will see the coming dread Warrior King defeat our enemy. The enemies plot will become his own demise. The Naphtali are the tribe associated with the month of Adar, and Naphtali means “sweetness is to me” (Godtime.blog). We will know the King intimately and find His favor, we will taste of His goodness and declare, “sweetness is to me”. “Naphtali is a doe let loose, [a swift warrior,] Which yields branched antlers (eloquent words).” Genesis 49:21. Like a deer let loose, this will be a beautiful time of rejoicing for The Church across the globe.
John Wimber ‘fathered” the Vineyard movement. Jesus said, “I am a true sprouting vine, and the farmer who tends the vine is my Father. I am the sprouting vine and you’re my branches. As you live in life union with me as your source, fruitfulness will stream from within you – but when you live separated from me you are powerless.” John 15:1,5. The vine abiders, ‘this is that’ new wine! The time stamp on this vision was 8:54 a.m. John 8:54 again points back the Father. “Jesus answered them, “If I were to tell you how great I am, it would mean nothing. But my Father is the One who will prove it and will glorify me. Isn’t he the One you claim is your God?” A new season is upon us, a double portion for mankind and a move of His Spirit that will allow us to experience Himself in the fullness of triune measure – Father, Son and Holy Spirit in a completeness yet not expressed as we have understood before. The Father is coming in this move to glorify His Son! I believe the Lord is saying these will be the days as described in 1 Corinthians 2:9, “This is why the Scriptures say: Things never discovered or heard of before, things beyond our ability to imagine—these are the many things God has in store for all his lovers.”
The Lord is coming to tend His vine and seek His glory dwellers, we are those He has called to experience His glory. It is through pure hearts we can see and encounter Him and become hosts of His presence. “But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” Habakkuk 2:14. The Lord is coming in love and power and and I believe this partially represents a marriage of The Word and The Spirit. This marriage will be accompanied by a tremendous weight of the Lord’s presence and I hear in the Spirit “He will move massively among the masses”. I physically feel this weight around hearts, people around the globe will be so awakened to the deep places of the heart of the Father that a world wide revolution of love will ignite. They will see and experience Him in Spirit and in Truth, they will know the Lord as lover and friend and their earthly fear of Him will begin to dissipate. The true fear of the Lord will bring Wisdom and a Spirit of Longing will overcome them. “Come Warrior King, pour the new wine!”.
“Your presence releases a fragrance so pleasing— over and over poured out. For your lovely name is “Flowing Oil.” No wonder the brides-to-be adore you. Draw me into your heart. We will run away together into the king’s cloud-filled chamber. We will remember your love, rejoicing and delighting in you, celebrating your every kiss as better than wine. No wonder righteousness adores you!” Song of Songs 1:3-4
“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.” Psalms 16:11
~ moving from common to sacred
Consecration is not a ‘one and done’ type of work in the believers life, it is a ‘forever and always’ until we are one with Christ in eternity.
This is how we are continually transformed into His likeness here on earth; through yeilding, obedience and surrender. As we behold His form, we are changed from from glory to glory.
“And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18 AMP
To have an unveiled face is to see the Lord rightly which requires consecration, clean hands and a pure heart. How much you see of Him clearly is determined by how much you set yourself apart for Him.
Consecration is defined from Webster’s 1828 dictionary: The act or ceremony of separating from a common to a sacred use, or of devoting and dedicating a person or thing to the service and worship of God, by certain rites or solemnities. Consecration does not make a person or thing really holy, but declares it to be sacred, that is, devoted to God or to divine service; as the consecration of the priests among the Israelites; the consecration of the vessels used in the temple; the consecration of a bishop.
Many months ago I had a vision where I was standing in what looked like a hexagon stand up tanning bed. I had protective eye wear on, and it was if the heat was from the sun, as everything else around me was black. I knew immediately the vision represented an accelerated time of fire, refining and testing. And that’s exactly what happened in my life, although I thought I had already been through those fires. When I stepped out of the tanning bed, I had white living flames that danced off my body when ever I moved. I sensed a heavenly and miraculous power attached to them.
Before this vision, I had a different vision where I was seeing blue flames. And just as we yield and are transformed from glory to glory, so do levels intensify and change. White represents some of the hottest parts of the flame, is known as the sacred flame and flame of ascension. In Hebrew white fire is חסד – loving kindness. It represents the goal of the Torah. כי כל ענין התורה הוא לקיים הטוב האלקי “The whole purpose of the Torah is to manifest God’s goodness in the world.” (Resourced from Yoni Mozeson – The Times Of Israel). What a beautiful symbol of beholding our King, we shall become like Him, transformed manifesting His goodness to the world.
When researching the symbolism of the hexagon, I found this particularly resourceful : “When used to build, hexagons minimize the amount of material needed, and which is why honeybees build in hexagons. It is also at the molecular core of water and therefore also in each of us, as we are made of at least 70% water. When hydrogen molecules freeze and bond, they form hexagons (ie – the center of a snowflake). The hexagon is also found in the structure of DNA — it forms the chains that produce the double-helix macromolecule.” The honey bee goes through complete metamorphosis- a symbol of complete transformation. The hexagon cell from where they are formed is a six-sided polygon with the total internal angles of the shape totaling 720°.
Each angle is 120° within the hexagon, and coincides with Strong’s concordance number 120 in Hebrew, אָדָם meaning Adam, man, mankind, humanity. The number six is also the number of man, the sum total of the six angles within the hexagon once again total 720°. Bees construct multiple cylindrical tubes which are then molded based on temperature and contact with other cells. The cells start off cylindrical on day 0 and transform into the common hexagonal shape by day 2. This speaks to me about our spiritual cycle of life, the circular is the Trinity, and the heated temperature forms the hexagon cell, where our DNA is transformed from the first Adam, to the second. The sum total is 720 – seven representing completion, He continually transforms us, completing the work He has begun in us, sanctifying us for the work of His service, and setting us apart for the Lord’s return.
May our speech be sweet like that of the honeycomb, inviting an orphaned world into an eternal life of adoption. May we die daily so others can live, offering the sweet aroma of sacrifice so others may also taste and see that the second Adam man, Jesus the King, He is good. May we become consecrated living flames of Love, manifesting the true pure virtue of our God. May we live in the ascended flame, beholding His form to be transformed in His glorious light and love.
“My old identity has been co-crucified with Christ and no longer lives. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives his life through me—we live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, dispensing his life into mine!” Galatians 2:20 TPT
This is time where it is imperative we have the Word of God deeply rooted in our hearts. The Word of God is alive in you. It is like currency, wisdom, power, provision, peace, healing, manna all within ~ it is Jesus in you the very Word that became flesh and dwelt among men. At times this supernatural reality can be beyond comprehension, open the eyes of your heart like a child and receive. Feast on His presence and consume His Word and then your heart will become full; He is the fulfillment to our desires and this we will never outgrow. Thank you Jesus You are our treasure and great reward, may we remain faithful to You!
“But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in and steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart [your wishes, your desires; that on which your life centers] will be also.”
Matthew 6:20-21 AMP
“Your word I have treasured and stored in my heart, That I may not sin against You.”
Psalms 119:11 AMP
I feel to re-release the word for the head of the year 2022, as we are more than half way through the year on the Gregorian calendar and coming into the Jewish new year. In this word regarding returning to first love, I shared what the Lord had spoken to me “knowledge without experience is void of intimacy”. I want to encourage those still in deep refining and or waiting to not allow your circumstances dictate your level of experiencing the Lord – He after all was the fourth man in the fire. Also it is good to gage where we are and measure progress – have we yielded, have we allowed Him to finish the work He has begun in us? As stated in this word, creative miracles with a supernatural release of fire and glory are on the other side the healing and trial, personal healing is leading to marriage and family revival as we return to first love.
I pray this blesses and encourages you today!
Within the circle of covenant, all of our needs are met in Christ. We are protected, provided for, loved, healed, and sealed. Within this circle is your security and a life of righteousness.
First we TRUST, then we remain in trust by DWELLING in His presence, we DELIGHT in Him, and remain COMMITTED here. This is the life of godliness sealed in covenant.
“Trust [rely on and have confidence] in the Lord and do good; Dwell in the land and feed [securely] on His faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, And He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; Trust in Him also and He will do it.”
Psalms 37:3-5 AMP
September is the 9th month on our Gregorian calendar, and represents a number of birthing! On the Hebrew calendar Rosh Hashanah is the celebration of the Jewish new year, and begins September 25 – 27th. The first day of autumn is September 22 and also symbolic of a time of change and harvest.
The New Monarchy Creation
Just yesterday on August 31, I was spending time in prayer when I saw a vision of a monarch butterfly, and then two other monarchs around it. Shortly after I saw a picture of luminous nuggets of gold. I had been sensing that the intense testing I had been going through was coming to an end, and the Lord highlighted to me that these appeared on the last day of the month of August – the eighth month which represents new beginnings and restoration. I finally had the confirming sign that the last “trimester” was complete, even through the number of butterflies in the vision. For me, it was three months to the day of the most heated fires and fiercest testing I have encountered this far in my life. The number three represents the Spirit, and I have remained confident it was the Lord’s will to test me. Butterflies, because of their complete metamorphosis are often associated with new beginnings and rebirth. We know that gold is refined in fire or extreme heat, and the nuggets represent the depths. From the deep and hidden places is now emerging the monarch creation.
The word monarch is defined as
•One who reigns over a state or territory, usually for life and by hereditary right, especially.
•A sole and absolute ruler.
•A sovereign, such as a king or empress, often with constitutionally limited authority.
•One that commands or rules.
•One that surpasses others in power or preeminence.
•A monarch butterfly.
•The chief of a monarchy; a supreme governor for life, entitled variously emperor (or empress), king (or queen), czar (or czarina), sultan, shah, etc.; primarily, a sole or autocratic ruler of a state, but in modern times generally a hereditary sovereign with more or less limited powers.
A gold nugget is a naturally occurring piece of native gold. “Gold nuggets originate from gold-bearing lodes. These derive from denser underground locations of the Earth, emerging on the surface through volcanic activity. Nuggets are pieces of naturally-occurring gold, detached from the lode, and then transported by natural forces in nearby sites like rivers.”
““Listen to Me, you who pursue righteousness (right standing with God), Who seek and inquire of the Lord: Look to the rock from which you were cut And to the excavation of the quarry from which you were dug. Look to Abraham your father And to Sarah who gave birth to you in pain; For I called him when he was but one, Then I blessed him and made him many.” For the Lord will comfort Zion [in her captivity]; He will comfort all her ruins. And He will make her wilderness like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the Lord; Joy and gladness will be found in her, Thanksgiving and the voice of a melody. “Listen carefully to Me [says the Lord], O My people, And hear Me, O My nation; For a [divine] law will go forth from Me, And I will quickly establish My justice as a light to the peoples. My righteousness (justice) is near, My salvation has gone forth, And My arms will judge the peoples; The islands and coastlands will wait for Me, And they will wait with hope and confident expectation for My arm. Isaiah 51:1-5 AMP
Early in the morning of August 9th, I had a dream and in the later part a woman was speaking to me as she was riding in the front passenger side of a vehicle, she was nearly going to give birth any moment. In fact, she appeared to be overdue. I was riding in the back though leaning into the front to listen, and at times was viewing the scene from third person. At one point, she was using the opened glove box as a tray, and eating sliced meat. The meaning of the pregnant woman’s name means “harvester” and “late summer”. We were in an urban area driving down a narrow backstreet with colorful artistic painting and graffiti on the city walls. The word urban is Latin urbanus meaning, “of or pertaining to a city or city life; in Rome,” also “in city fashion, polished, refined, cultivated, courteous” ; urbis “city, walled town”.
As I have been praying for the restoration of Eden, I believe the redeemed, tested, and mature sons and daughters are being “reborn” to take dominion for and with our Heavenly Father; that we may establish His Kingdom as our rightful inheritance for such a time as this. This is a pivotal season of change and establishing, a time to walk into the fullness of what we were born to do – with humility, gratitude, and maturity. A time to redeem the land; polish, refine, and cultivate in courtesy to its Creator and with integrity to the original design. A time to build and re-build from the ancient path, fulfill the dream and blueprint of His heart, repair the walls that are continually before Him, make straight the highway and keep in sight the city of our God.
We Are Moving From Pressure To Promise
The harvest has been long overdue, and speaks of many different types of crops – from salvation of the eternal spirit to the secret petitions of the heart, the Lord is restoring life and waking all of our parts. The Father will fulfill His promises while the Son kisses your heart, delivered by the Holy Spirit and marked by a brand new start. From pressure to promise, the renaissance is beginning, watch now for the birthing and re-birthing is here. Steward well the authority given, for this shall be known as a season of “on earth as it is in heaven”. Lean in and incline your ear, do you not hear the sound of creation groaning?
“For against its will the universe itself has had to endure the empty futility resulting from the consequences of human sin. But now, with eager expectation, all creation longs for freedom from its slavery to decay and to experience with us the wonderful freedom coming to God’s children. To this day we are aware of the universal agony and groaning of creation, as if it were in the contractions of labor for childbirth. And it’s not just creation. We who have already experienced the firstfruits of the Spirit also inwardly groan as we passionately long to experience our full status as God’s sons and daughters—including our physical bodies being transformed.” Romans 8:20-23 TPT
“Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself [received us into favor, brought us into harmony with Himself] and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation [that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him].” 2 Corinthians 5:17-18 AMPC
We are coming into a time when the truth will be seen “rightly” and it will be as the saying goes, “truth is stranger than fiction”.
The deceptive layer blinding the eyes and hearts of many is the real fiction, and while we have been comfortable to rebuke truth and hold fiction in its place – there will soon be no denying the false realities we have eagerly embraced for generations.
The arrogance of man will be humbled. The lofty thoughts will be made to bow low. The winds will sift throughout all the earth, lifting up and tearing down. Many will say, “Is this evil, or is this good?” And the Lord says yes it is both.
Repent (change your thinking) Repent (change your mind) – the glory clouds are coming to weigh the hearts and the mind. And as Elijah left this earth so will his spirit return, so look for the winds and the hurricanes as they will be a sign.
Return to me, return to me, hearts turn to the Father. Return to me, return to me and drink this last cup of water.
““Go up through the rows of Jerusalem’s vineyards and destroy [them], But do not completely destroy everything. Strip away her branches and the tendrils [of her vines], For they are not the Lord’s. For the house of Israel and the house of Judah Have dealt very treacherously (faithlessly) with Me,” declares the Lord. They have lied about and denied the Lord By saying, “It is not He [who speaks through His prophets]; Misfortune and evil shall not come on us, Nor will we see war or famine. The prophets are like the wind [their prophecy will not come to pass], And the word [of God] is not in them. In this manner it will be done to them [as they prophesied, not to us].” Therefore, thus says the Lord God of hosts, “Because you [people] have spoken this word, Behold, I am making My words a fire in your mouth [Jeremiah] And this people wood, and My words will consume them. Behold, I am bringing a nation against you from far away, O house of Israel,” says the Lord. “It is a mighty and enduring nation, It is an ancient nation, A nation whose language you do not know, Whose words you do not comprehend. Their quiver is [filled with the dead] like an open grave; They are all mighty men [heroes of their nation]. They will consume your harvest and [eat up] your bread; They will consume your sons and your daughters; They will consume your flocks and your herds; They will consume your vines and your fig trees. With the sword they will break down and demolish your fortified cities in which you trust. “But even in those days,” says the Lord, “I will not totally destroy you. It will come about when your people say, ‘Why has the Lord our God done all these things to us?’ then you shall answer them, ‘As you have abandoned (rejected) Me,’ [says the Lord,] ‘and have served strange and foreign gods in your land, so you will serve strangers in a land that is not yours.’”
Jeremiah 5:10-19 AMP
““Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers [a reconciliation produced by repentance], so that I will not come and strike the land with a curse [of complete destruction].””
Malachi 4:5-6 AMP
What you believe about God and who He says He is matters greatly, we are in a pivotal moment where even our breakthroughs are hinged on our belief systems. As written below, we need to examine ourselves and cleanse our hearts from unwarranted doubt concerning His faithfulness. God is the Lord and He changes not! “Jesus Christ is [eternally changeless, always] the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 AMP
“Therefore, thus says the Lord [to Jeremiah], “If you repent [and give up this mistaken attitude of despair and self-pity], then I will restore you [to a state of inner peace] So that you may stand before Me [as My obedient representative]; And if you separate the precious from the worthless [examining yourself and cleansing your heart from unwarranted doubt concerning My faithfulness], You will become My spokesman. Let the people turn to you [and learn to value My values]— But you, you must not turn to them [with regard for their idolatry and wickedness]. And I will make you to this people A fortified wall of bronze; They will fight against you, But they will not prevail over you, For I am with you [always] to save you And protect you,” says the Lord. “So I will rescue you out of the hand of the wicked, And I will redeem you from the [grasping] palm of the terrible and ruthless [tyrant].”” Jeremiah 15:19-21 AMP
Holiness is the beauty that adorns the Lord’s House! I believe we are coming into a time where we will hold dear the word “holiness” again. It will become precious, treasured and protected as we understand we are to be holy as the Lord is holy. The Father’s House will be honored, and it will be our hearts delight to guard His Home – in the innermost place of our being, and the places where His Glory dwells.
“You are to be holy to Me; for I the Lord am holy, and have set you apart from the peoples (nations) to be Mine.” Leviticus 20:26 AMP
“Your precepts are fully confirmed and completely reliable; Holiness adorns Your house, O Lord, forever.” Psalms 93:5 AMP
“Nothing could ever change your royal decrees; they will last forever! Holiness is the beauty that fills your house; you are the one who abides forevermore!” Psalms 93:5 TPT
When the Church becomes a house of exclusivity, it becomes home to self-made kingdoms. This unfortunately, perpetuates idolatry “unaware”.
Many are familiar with the passage from Isaiah 22 known as The Valley Of Vision, as it is often quoted from verse 22, “And the 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.” Isaiah 22:22 AMPC.
However, if you read the chapter in it’s entirety, this is a changing of the guard verse. Earlier in the chapter the leaders in Jerusalem fled with the King, they saw breaches in wall of the city of David and tore down houses to provide themselves materials to expand the city wall. Additionally, Shebna who was a steward and in charge of the royal household was building himself a tomb worthy of a king. The Lord refers to Shebna as the shame of his masters house for his lack of humility and assuming a position that he wasn’t entitled to. Furthermore, he was attempting to affix himself in the foundation. “Come, go to this [contemptible] steward and treasurer, to Shebna, who is over the house [but who is presumptuous enough to be building himself a tomb among those of the mighty, a tomb worthy of a king], and say to him, What business have you here? And whom have you entombed here, that you have the right to hew out for yourself a tomb here? He hews out a sepulcher for himself on the height! He carves out a dwelling for himself in the rock!” Isaiah 22:15-16 AMPC. The foundations are at risk, says the Lord!
Not all that is being built is from the Lord, and it may seem right to man, even those who are in leadership but the Lord will have His way. It’s better to yield to the Lord now than have it stripped away by Him. As written above, we may be taking from the security and provision of others (tearing down homes) to build what seems to be a stronger wall for the protection of all and/or ‘the greater good’, yet it is damaging to those within those fortified walls, aka The Body.
“Behold, the Lord will hurl you away violently, O you strong man; yes, He will take tight hold of you and He will surely cover you [with shame]. He will surely roll you up in a bundle [Shebna] and toss you like a ball into a large country; there you will die and there will be your splendid chariots, you disgrace to your master’s house! And I will thrust you from your office, and from your station will you be pulled down. And in that day I will call My servant, Eliakim son of Hilkiah. And I will clothe him with your robe and will bind your girdle on him and will commit your authority to his hand; he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. And the 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. And I will fasten him like a peg or nail in a firm place; and he will become a throne of honor and glory to his father’s house.” Isaiah 22:17-23 AMPC
Now is the time to OCCUPY the space you’ve been given – lest it be overtaken by a different authority. I was given a warning dream last night, and it was very clear we need to steward our spiritual authority and what the Lord has given to us; promises, gifts, inheritance, spiritual land, etc. Ultimately, it’s a stewarding of His voice! Our callings and future life are dependent upon it.
This is a season of Love and War!
