I encourage you to mediate on this: when Christ is seen for who He really is, who you really are will also be revealed.
Through the plate of of redemption you are one with Him in glory.
“Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority! Yes, feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm. Your crucifixion with Christ has severed the tie to this life, and now your true life is hidden away in God in Christ. And as Christ himself is seen for who he really is, who you really are will also be revealed, for you are now one with him in his glory!” Colossians 3:1-4 TPT
“Therefore if you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, sharing in His resurrection from the dead], keep seeking the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind and keep focused habitually on the things above [the heavenly things], not on things that are on the earth [which have only temporal value]. For you died [to this world], and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.” Colossians 3:1-4 AMP
Movement May ~ I believe many will see great momentum, movement and miracles in May! Recently I heard in the Spirit, “miracles, miracles, miracles”. Three is the number of the Spirit – there is a complete agreement by the triune Godhead for the manifestation of miracles for the glory of His Kingdom.
“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree.
“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel: “They’ll rebuild their ruined cities. They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine. They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables. And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land. They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.”
The Lord spoke this word to me a couple of weeks ago – “catalytic”. I was journaling about something when He gave me the word I was trying to describe. I heard it, and wrote it not knowing what I was writing. It’s from the word catalysis: the acceleration of a chemical reaction by a catalyst. Catalyst: 1) a substance that causes or accelerates a chemical reaction without itself being affected 2) something that causes activity between two or more persons or forces without itself being affected 3) a person or thing that precipitates an event or change.
For those of you who are wondering why the atmosphere has been even more “swirly” lately – this is why. You may have been experiencing unusual activity, negative and positive. Heaven is pressing into the earth realm and it is creating a spiritual ‘chemical reaction’.
As a feeler, I’ve also been experiencing His presence and the manifestation of the Kingdom differently and in new tangible ways. What the Lord has promised is coming, and it’s going to be wild! Keep pressing into Him, His presence is coming individually and corporately in ways we are not prepared to describe!
The veil in the spiritual realm has been consistently becoming more thin over the last few years, and the Holy Spirit is about to reveal even more to us! It is imperative to prepare your heart in this time for what is to come. Wait for the Holy Spirit, for He will be the One to reveal.
“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. But God now unveils these profound realities to us by the Spirit. Yes, he has revealed to us his inmost heart and deepest mysteries through the Holy Spirit, who constantly explores all things.” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 TPT
The Lord is completing the “new thing” He has begun in you!
I took this photo yesterday while I was venturing into nature to pray about some things. Butterflies often represent new beginnings and this painting caught my eye as it reminded me of a very large oversized butterfly I had dreamt about last year. Today in a quick dream I saw 8:4. I knew immediately what it meant. Eight represents the new beginning and four represents the fullness of the this work; four corners of the earth, four elements of earth, four directions – it is a completion for rule.
I felt seeing the 8:4 in my dream was also a scripture and was led with the ‘knowing’ I had of the New Beginning to the book of Genesis “In the beginning”; Genesis 8:4 “And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.” Symboliclly, we see a new beginning for the rule of the earth as this was post flood. Noah and his family landed atop the mountain which signifies rule and authority, though they would have to wait and rest until the waters subsided to leave the ark. It was the 7th month when the ark landed and seven represents completion, the ‘ark rested’ and God also rested on the 7th day of Creation. Stay in His presence, rest and wait for the Holy Spirit!
We are in the same season as the apostles when Jesus, after He resurrected, told them to wait for the Holy Spirit to come before they proceeded with “The Great Commission”. Yet before He commissioned, He declared He had been given all authority and rule. This is also symbolic as the apostles would go forward in this same power and authority. As Jesus said, wait here in Jerusalem, but it won’t be long from now, I too believe He is saying to us, “not long from now”. However, these new wings are not ordinary, they are much larger with greater span and we are also in new territory. Therefore, we need the wind of the Holy Spirit to lead and carry us! He knows The Way – wait for Him!
Timing is different for many of us, especially if you are a prophet or a forerunner. You may already be flying and scoping out the land but the message is the same for all – we must wait upon the Lord for renewed strength. All should be yielding to the process of transformation that changes us from glory to glory.
“While being together and eating with them, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, “Of which,” He said, “you have heard Me speak. For John baptized with water, but you will be baptized and empowered and united with the Holy Spirit, not long from now.”” Acts 1:4-5 AMP
There is a cup of love that suffers, I call it ‘The Longing’, I’ve written about it occasionally over the years, but I feel He is increasing this message now. As we read here in Song of Solomon, cleansing and purity alone does not satisfy our Bridegroom King, even those who have yielded to righteousness He still desires more; He is looking for those who long for more of Him, pierced by the woundings of suffering love. If your heart had been touched and awakened by the love of your life, you’d pursue finding them, you would look for and long to be reconnected to them. If you were engaged (which we all are by the way) you would be lovesick for your mate if their presence departed from you for long. This is our Jesus, our bethrothed, and His desire is for you. In the Old Testament, Priests who had access to the Holy of Holies (His presence) were given a commandment by God through Moses to never let the fire go out on the alter, they in essence were in charge of stewarding the Presence of God. We are in the new covenant now, and are called priests and we have the Holy of Holies in our hearts – divine access to His presence and heart through Jesus. In the same way, the principle hasn’t changed, we must never let the fire stop burning on the alter of our hearts.
“The fire on the altar shall be kept burning; it shall not [be allowed to] go out. The priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and he shall arrange the burnt offering on it and offer the fat portions of the peace offerings up in smoke on it. The fire shall be burning continually on the altar; it shall not [be allowed to] go out.” Leviticus 6:12-13 AMP
I pray the Lord would mark you this day, and your heart would long for more of Him! May He captivate your being as you offer all of you for all of Him! ❤️🔥
The Bride-groom King Arise, my love. Open your heart, my darling, deeper still to me. Will you receive me this dark night? There is no one else but you, my friend, my equal. I need you this night to arise and come be with me. You are my pure, loyal dove, a perfect partner for me. My flawless one, will you arise? For my heaviness and tears are more than I can bear. I have spent myself for you throughout the dark night. The Sleeping Bride I have already laid aside my own garments for you. How could I take them up again since I’ve yielded my righteousness to yours? You have cleansed my life and taken me so far. Isn’t that enough? My beloved reached into me to unlock my heart. The core of my very being trembled at his touch. How my soul melted when he spoke to me! My spirit arose to open for more of his touch. As I surrendered to him, I began to sense his fragrance— the fragrance of his suffering love! It was the sense of myrrh flowing all through me! I opened my soul to my beloved, but suddenly he was gone! And my heart was torn out in longing for him. I sought his presence, his fragrance, but could not find him anywhere. I called out for him, yet he did not answer me. I will arise and search for him until I find him. As I walked throughout the city in search of him, the overseers stopped me as they made their rounds. They beat me and bruised me until I could take no more. They wounded me deeply and removed their covering from me. Nevertheless, make me this promise, you brides-to-be: if you find my beloved one, please tell him I endured all travails for him. I’ve been pierced through by love, and I will not be turned aside! Song of Solomon 5: 1-8
The work of completion is the work of love. It is your responsibility to yield to the Lord, and God, who is perfect Love greatest pleasure to complete what has begun in you. He doesn’t grow weary or faint, He doesn’t rest until what He begins is completed. He watches over His Word to perform it. Love protects, hovers, watches, perfects and completes. Then by His sovereign power, the Lord establishes you when the work is done. Yield, have faith and belief and all that concerns you will be perfected. The Lord makes it happen, not you; our love is imperfect though yielding allows perfect love to complete us.
“After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace [who imparts His blessing and favor], who called you to His own eternal glory in Christ, will Himself complete, confirm, strengthen, and establish you [making you what you ought to be]. To Him be dominion (power, authority, sovereignty) forever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 5:10-11 AMP
You are identified by Jesus love for you, and His banner over you is love. In the Old Testament banners were used to identify clans, they were also raised to announce something significant was going to happen, and raised in war and in victory. You belong to Him, Love sent Jesus to the cross, Love wages war on our enemies, Love has won the final battle, Love returns for us (the Bride). You are completely covered by love, and wooed to know this One in the safest of chambers.
Though this has been one of my long time favorite verses that I’ve shared often, it still remains the place of my longing. The wounding my heart feels from His love is piercing, yet sweet. My writing has been less, and though I want to encourage all of you – this is all I have for now, but it’s everything; Hear His heartbeat, stay close to His heart. I’ve been undone here in this place for weeks. In His love, He makes all things complete. Taste and see, He is good.
“He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love [for love waved as a protecting and comforting banner over my head when I was near him].” Song of Solomon 2:4 AMPC 🍎🍇
In the Old Testament, Passover was a type and shadow of the redeemer, liberator, deliverer, and Savior to come – Jesus. This year Passover begins this evening at sunset, coinciding with the very day we remember the crucifixion of Christ on this “Good Friday”. And so it feels especially holy today as we celebrate the beginning of Passover, and the last of the plagues in Egypt before the Israelites were freed. “For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment [proving their helplessness]. I am the Lord. The blood shall be for a token or sign to you upon [the doorposts of] the houses where you are, [that] when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague shall be upon you to destroy you when I smite the land of Egypt. [I Cor. 5:7; Heb. 11:28.]” Exodus 13-12:12 . The blood applied to the doorframes was that from a spotless lamb, whose innocent blood was sacrificed so that the death Angel would passover their homes, sparing their firstborn.
I do not think even with the most powerful revelations of the atonement for sin we will fully understand the blood sacrifice of our risen Lord on this side of Heaven. Perhaps the closest was Jesus’ cousin John the Baptist who proclaimed “The next day John saw Jesus coming to him and said, Look! There is the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world! [Exod. 12:3; Isa. 53:7.]” John 1:29. And that wasn’t the first time John recognized the Lord by the Spirit, thirty years earlier the two miracle babies John and Jesus had an encounter while in their mother’s wombs.
“And listen, even your relative Elizabeth has also conceived a son in her old age; and she who was called barren is now in her sixth month. For with God nothing [is or ever] shall be impossible.” Then Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word.” And the angel left her. Now at this time Mary arose and hurried to the hill country, to a city of Judah (Judea), and she entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, her baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and empowered by Him.” Luke 1:36-41 AMP
The fulfillment of the Word had come, and the for-running prophet in the womb had recognized Him, the perfect Lamb of God slain before the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8), though as a man John recognized Jesus as the Son of God after the Holy Spirit revealed this to him. “This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.” Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”” John 1:30-34 NIV
Jesus is the spotless lamb. He is the firstborn (Romans 8:29) and His blood made a way for you and I to forever be free from death with the gift of reconciliation and eternal life. “Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new batch, just as you are, still unleavened. For Christ our Passover Lamb has been sacrificed. Therefore, let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with leaven of vice and malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and [untainted] truth.” 1 Corinthians 5:7-8 AMP. His blood cleanses, His blood washes us, His blood purifies us to be seen as holy in His sight. His blood does for us that which we could absolutely never do for ourselves. And it takes the Holy Spirit to reveal the depths of this truth. May the Holy Spirit reveal Jesus, the power of the crucifixion and His atonement like you have never experienced before; Behold our Beautiful, Flawless Passover Lamb!
I did not just slay a gargantuan snake in my dream last night, I cut it into pieces and smashed (flattened) it’s head.
This snake was mostly white with some yellow on the belly. There wasn’t a strong sense of fear around it because it was mostly white, posing as having a ‘form of godliness’, so it had become familiar to people, and the yellow represents ‘friendly’. Yet I saw in its belly it just consumed a rather large prey. These are the snakes in the Church and it’s time to flatten their heads! They blend in, deceive, and are familiar and they have convinced you they aren’t dangerous. Religion and seduction!
The Lord showed me in another dream a couple weeks ago judgment coming to three Houses in the Church. And in another dream He showed me He’s dealing with the Mountain of religion. Clean the house before He does, because its time!
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” II Timothy 3:1-7 NKJV
