“Get ready for the rise of the Elisha prophets”. A word I was going to release sometime over a year ago, and did not even though I know what I heard in the Spirit to be true. I waited, and waited; I watched, heard, and experienced to understand that everything that had come against them to keep them from their mantle – the forces to accuse, suppress, cause delay and all they wrestled under has now forged a most vehement flame in them. This flame will consume every naysayer that comes against the will of the Lord. They are PURE, hungry and allegiant prophets who are confidently driven by the love and fear of the Lord. They distain all that hinders the way and truth of God, zeal for His House consumes them and this HOLY passion will tear down every religious system and principality.
The fire is coming. Get ready! The earth will know God will not be mocked! These Elisha prophets have faithfully endured testing and have paid the price for Elijah’s mantle. Do you not know these are the ones who will run in the earth in these last hours to crush the high places? These are the promised mature sons and daughters ~ the restored ones who will not walk but run preparing the way for the Lord. They help cleanse the land from territorial spirits that cause barrenness and others alike – These are the final torch bearers. The Elisha prophets are deliverers and restorers, they are wild lovers and fierce warriors. They clear the way for labor and safe delivery, “the harvest is ripe and laborers are few” – but they work unto the harvest – it is in the meaning of their name; Elisha : God is Salvation. There is no fear of man left in them. They have trained and prepared for war. They hold the final blueprint and revelation for the coming of the Lord.
Religion sat on its lofty mountain and accused our Savior, nailing Him to Calvary’s cross but these Elisha’s will run atop these same mountains working together under the authority of Christ to crush the snakes that once bruised His heel. Their agreement with the Lord to accomplish His plans has made them the fiercest warrior bride tribe. Unstoppable, they ascend and descend during these final battles, seated with the Christ the Son, kinship so devoted they are with Him when He leaves His throne – the final watchmen who will herald, “look now, we see Him coming, prepare the way of the Lord!” They are more than times and seasons prophets, they ARE the season. Living signs, living wonders, living testimonies, living convictions. They are not who you think they are, for while the Church was raising up their chosen to make their prophets the Lord was breaking His.
Get ready! The fire is coming!
ELISHA SUCCEEDS ELIJAH
“When the sons of the prophets who were [watching] opposite at Jericho saw him, they said, “The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha.” And they came to meet him and bowed down to the ground before him [in respect]. Then they said to Elisha, “Behold now, there are among your servants fifty strong men; please let them go and search for your master. It may be that the Spirit of the Lord has taken him up and cast him on some mountain or into some valley.” And he said, “You shall not send anyone.” But when they urged him until he was embarrassed [to refuse them], he said, “Send them.” So they sent fifty men, and they searched for three days but did not find Elijah. They returned to Elisha while he was staying at Jericho; and he said to them, “Did I not tell you, ‘Do not go’?” Then the men of the city said to Elisha, “Look, this city is in a pleasant place, as my Lord [Elisha] sees; but the water is bad and the land is barren.” He said, “Bring me a new jar, and put salt in it.” So they brought it to him. Then Elisha went to the spring of water and threw the salt in it and said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘I [not the salt] have purified and healed these waters; there shall no longer be death or barrenness because of it.’ ” So the waters have been purified to this day, in accordance with the word spoken by Elisha. Then Elisha went up from Jericho to Bethel. On the way, young boys came out of the city and mocked him and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” When he turned around and looked at them, he cursed them in the name of the Lord. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore to pieces forty-two of the boys. Elisha went from there to Mount Carmel, and from there he returned to Samaria.” 2 Kings 2:15-25 AMP
Whoever chooses to be the world’s friend makes Himself God’s enemy (James 4:4).
This the scripture that the Lord gave me when I was interpreting a recent dream. In the dream He likened friendship with the world to an algebra mathematical problem, with the root of the division (from Him) entering through our eye gates. We have been in a stunted class where we have learned to obtain what we see, yet it still serving a “third-world spirit world” – it serves self and the brokenness of a fallen nature. It is poverty ridden in mindset, ladden with false acquisition and hope. Repeating the same systematic patterns in a secular world equate secular results. We are fixated on what is brief, our high reach is for what is momentary instead of eternal. The carnality of life is programmed from generation to generation. We are regressing instead of progressing. Our society is like a fracture that will not heal, and the Lord is resetting our bone structure to reunite broken parts.
If you study the etymology of the word Algebra, it quite plainly a spiritual allegory. Reunion of broken parts and reducing fractions are two preparatory steps to solving algebraic equations ~ calculation by restoring and balancing. The Lord is longing to restore us, but will not reintegrate His people while still broken. He showed me in the dream, you will not graduate when conformed to the systems of the world.
I’ve written about this last year in a different article, however it most certainly applicable to this dream, and how we move forward in the ways of the Lord. The spiritual realm is mathematical! We must take the mental effort to transform from a worldly mind the to mind of Christ. The Greek the word for disciple is mathētḗs, a learner, disciple, pupil and comes from math – “the mental effort to think something through”. HELPS word study defines mathēteúō, “disciple” – to disciple, i.e. helping someone to progressively learn the Word of God to become a matured, growing disciple (literally, “a learner,” a true Christ-follower); to train (develop) in the truths of Scripture and the lifestyle required, i.e. helping a believer learn to be a disciple of Christ in belief and practice.”
“Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship. And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].” Romans 12:1-2 AMP ￼ Your eyes may be looking on things above and yet still carnal. High places aren’t necessarily His places. You may be looking up, but are you looking at Him?
“Or do you suppose that the Scripture is speaking to no purpose that says, The Spirit Whom He has caused to dwell in us yearns over us and He yearns for the Spirit [to be welcome] with a jealous love? [Jer. 3:14; Hos. 2:19ff.]” James 4:5 AMPC
“Does the Scripture mean nothing to you that says, “The Spirit that God breathed into our hearts is a jealous Lover who intensely desires to have more and more of us”?” James 4:5 TPT
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
Earlier this month on Sunday, July 10, my friend picked me up for church which gave me the ability to finish getting ready in the car, and by getting ready I mean applying my makeup as it’s almost always the last step for me and on-the-go. This day I couldn’t find my concealer, it should have been in either my makeup bag or purse, though after searching with no avail it appeared to be misplaced or lost. For those of you who are not familiar with concealer and what it is used for, it is a light color cosmetic that is applied to the face that typically blends in with the skin to “conceal”. My concealer is specifically used to brighten the under the eye area though it can be used for blemishes, red areas, or to blur imperfections, etc. For me, if I choose to wear makeup it is a step in my routine that I don’t like to leave out as it gives a bright and even-tone look, however there was no substitute so I shrugged it off and went about my day.
After service, when I arrived back to the place where I am staying, I was walking up the stairs when the Holy Spirit said, “No Concealer”. Then I heard the scripture verse from Luke 12, “There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.” Luke 12:2 NIV. In greater context, for over a year the Lord has been speaking to me about judgment, kings, ruling, and war, however I have seldom released those messages and have been intentionally “flying low”. Two months ago the Lord told me I needed to start saying the harder things He shares with me as it aligns with my purpose and call.
I asked the Lord why He didn’t just tell me the scripture as opposed to having me experience the message of literally ‘going without concealer’ and He said, “Because it’s right under the eye”. It is at the door – exposure, war, judgment, separation. In other words, we are about to have an encounter with this knowledge. The experience with the concealer came after several weeks of new warning words, as well as dreams and visions of the needed cleansing and separation that is coming to the Church. There was a two-fold message in the concealer – first I could no longer keep hidden the secrets He has shared with me when given permission to release and secondly whatever has been hiding in darkness will be made known and come to light. I was curious to know if I actually lost the concealer, and I did find it later on a small side table that I didn’t recall placing it on. I’ve gotten used to the prophetic acts that I often will experience on behalf of the Church Body, and this was confirmation that this was of importance to the Lord.
More revelation continued to flow as I thought about specific areas I apply the concealer; in addition to my eyes I also use it around the crease of my nose, and above my top lip known as “cupid’s bow” as it gives the effect of opening up the lips. As I meditated upon what the Lord already said to me I realized it didn’t end there – He wants us to fully sense what is happening in the Body without filter (nose). He wants to reveal the false loyalty, and religious spirit (lips). Our eyes cannot see on our own body these pointed out areas; we cannot see the creases or dark circles under our eye, we cannot see the folds beside our nose, and we cannot see our lips. The Lord is wanting us to see what is in “the fold” and “under the surface” so to speak in His Body. Luke 12:1 is the opening scripture that precedes Nothing Concealed and gives warning of the leaven of the Pharisees. “In the meanwhile, when so many thousands of the people had gathered that they were trampling on one another, Jesus commenced by saying primarily to His disciples, Be on your guard against the leaven (ferment) of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy [producing unrest and violent agitation].” As I was writing this out I felt the Holy Spirit prompt me to look up the word leaven in the Greek. Leaven is defined in HELPS Word-studies (figuratively) as the spreading influence of what is typically concealed, generally a symbol of the spreading nature of evil. Then Jesus says, “Nothing is [so closely] covered up that it will not be revealed, or hidden that it will not be known. Whatever you have spoken in the darkness shall be heard and listened to in the light, and what you have whispered in [people’s] ears and behind closed doors will be proclaimed upon the housetops.” Luke 12:2-3 AMPC
Prior to the concealer experience on Wednesday, July 6, I had another alarming dream of an unclean spirit trying to reproduce itself and directionally drive the body of Christ through seduction. Visually, a very tall man was sitting Indian style with his posture straight, his wife also very tall was also sitting Indian style to the left of him. This woman’s limbs coiled around the husband in an unnatural humanly possible way so that she was partly intertwined with him, though in the rite of unity. The woman’s name in the dream means “pure” and “clear”, though is also from the Greek god of magic, meaning “torture”. The man’s name symbolizes a type of Christ and means “to save”, “God is deliverance”. The man’s head seemed to be enlarged in the dream. Ultimately, the man representing the head of the Church was influenced by sensuality unaware and was subdued by a false peace, yielding his power to the desire and mind of the woman. The sensual spirit was masked under leadership, unity, purity and peace, and nearly impossible to discern based on appearances and logic. When I was praying about the dream later in the morning that day, the Lord gave me a vision of a large white-head on the face that was ready to “pop”. It was quite deceptive because it was not red and irritated on the surface, though hiding underneath was the root of the acne where the build up of old oils and infection was trapped within the clogged pore. When I saw the vision it was magnified very large, so that the white-head was very enlarged, like a mountain slope. The internal build up was ‘piling high’ and ready to burst forth. The Lord was also pointing out that it was white which normally means purity however He was saying the mountain was disguised as ‘being pure’. “Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully.” Psalms 24:3-4 NKJV. This “popping” of the underlying infection will expose idolatry and deceit within with body.
This new wave of cleansing is so close that it is very difficult to see. This is why the five-fold leadership must pay attention with the eyes of their spirit. You will miss it if you only see what you see within your own ability, we must be willing to humble ourselves and listen to the Spirit and whom He may be speaking through to expose the deeper need of cleansing. Our highest spiritual goal is to be transformed into the image of Jesus, and as we prepare for His return we purify ourselves to look like Him – the pure, spotless, unblemished Lamb of God. The unclean spirit is among the leadership and/or their influencers at different levels through out the global body. Often times when we are closer to the situation or persons either through position or familiarity, it can make the coming exposure, needed cleansing and separation hard to detect. Seducing spirits cause religion to reproduce, as they are entangled and have become one. The process of becoming untwined and unyoked will more than likely be very painful though necessary. This is a time when the Lord wants us to see the imperfections, darkness, and blemishes – not to be critical and judgmental (even though His judgment is coming) though rather as protection, an opportunity for repentance, and a severing for true sustainable healthy growth.
I asked the Lord why He spoke to me while going up the stairs coming back after church that Sunday. Why then? Why there? This is what He showed me, I am staying in a temporary and transitional place and the address numbers literally mean “complete new beginning”. I was just about to enter the door where those numbers are visibly located, and symbolically the new era of the Church and many in the global body have crossed over the Jordan though have not yet occupied their promised land. We have been traversing in the new land and have been given keys to doors however we have not completely taken residence in Canaan. We are not yet homeowners in the promised land. Some are in the process of building new homes, though the structures are not yet finished. Joshua’s conquest of Canaan was a seven year battle, made up of several other battles once they crossed the Jordan. Some of these battles were won by “suddenlies” by the Lord’s mighty power, but none were won without obedience to His instruction.
The Lord knows what we can handle and He sees the larger picture at hand. This is why cleansing and deliverance often happen in stages. “I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate [for lack of attention] and the wild beasts multiply against you. Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased and are numerous enough to take possession of the land.” Exodus 23:29-30 AMPC. As the Bride matures and completely separates from Egypt through sanctification, so shall she inherit her promises and land [short exhortation on that here https://ablazeglobalproductions.com/2021/06/25/rolling-away-egypt/ ].
This is the one of the most critical junctures of history, especially for the Church. The Lord is sovereign and yet our obedience and diligence toward His instructions, voice and ways has never been more important to inherit our complete new beginning. This is about the Lamb receiving His reward, His Bride, and when allow the unclean spirit a home in the new building / era we are not cleaning and purifying the Bride we are defiling her! For the union of the Son and His Bride, God’s love not only confronts, it cuts. When Jesus was on earth He said, “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.” Matthew 10:34 NKJV. And in the Passion Translation, “Perhaps you think I’ve come to spread peace and calm over the earth—but my coming will bring conflict and division, not peace.” Matthew 10:34 TPT. In the footnotes of The Passion Translation it is written that the Aramaic word harba can mean either “sword” or “war” and in the Greek either term signifies division.
The impending war and judgment we are facing will surface in our natural earth realm, however there is no doubt the war is first waged within the mind of man. Similarly the great judgement is a divide of the mind; a deciding for or against the beliefs that have taken root in the heart of man. “For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart. And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, and revealed to the eyes of Him with whom we have to give account.” Hebrews 4:12-13 AMP.
It was the Pharisees that made for themselves fail-able kingdoms on earth that decay, their self importance building towers high,“Rightly did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites (play-actors, pretenders), as it is written [in Scripture], ‘These people honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. They worship Me in vain [their worship is meaningless and worthless, a pretense], Teaching the precepts of men as doctrines [giving their traditions equal weight with the Scriptures].’” Mark 7:6-7 AMP. This religious spirit would be responsible for our slain Bridegroom King, it lay with the unclean spirit that would seduce and lead astray the loyalty of hearts, blinding men from the hope of an eternity with our risen Lord. Holy Spirit lead us to the measuring rod, may we build for You with purity of mind, heart, action and speech; help us to love the discipline of the Father as we build an unshakable Kingdom for Your throne, cleanse and sanctify us that we may share in the beauty of Your holiness. Make us holy because you are Holy, we want to look like you and behold Your form.
“For there is nothing hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come out into the open. So be careful how you listen; for whoever has [a teachable heart], to him more [understanding] will be given; and whoever does not have [a longing for truth], even what he thinks he has will be taken away from him.”” Luke 8:17-18 AMP
For some of the other prophetic words that I have already published on war, judgement and exposure visit these links:
Do you need encouragement? I know I do! It feels like I have been fighting the fiercest battles by myself, a lonely season of trial. Though we are never alone because the Lord is with us, I do believe sometimes we go through the valley, desert and even mountian top like Moses in solitude because the Lord is developing our strength in Him through union with Him. Other times we may be on a new mission and feel like we don’t have the desired support for lack of understanding or perhaps just scarce community and trustworthy persons. Maybe you have people all around you and the Lord has you pondering in silence like Mary, protecting closely His words of promise to your heart. Whatever the reason and place of the battle, I believe there is something for us to take away from an encouragement Paul gave to Timothy.
“Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith.” 1 Timothy 1:18-19 NIV
If the battle is first in our mind and with our thoughts, what if part of successful mind renewal comes from meditating on prophecies over our life? We are washed by the Word (Ephesians 5:26), Jesus is the Word (John 1:1,14) the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy (Revelation 19:10). Paul writes that by recalling the prophetic promises over our life we 1) fight the battle well 2) hold onto faith 3) have clarity of mind, and 4) consequentially people fall out of faith when they forget and reject the promises of God.
I encourage you and myself to build an alter and remember; renew your mind to what the Lord has already done through your previous encounters, promises from His Word, and prophetic promises as they pertain to your call.
I pray this excerpt from The Christian View on “Fighting The Good Fight Of Faith” is a blessing and encouragement to you! Full episode can be watched here: https://youtu.be/IJ0CJReV63c
In Matthew 18 the disciples asked Jesus who would be greatest in the Kingdom. In the Aramaic the question is read, “Who will reign in the kingdom realm of heaven?”
“At that time the disciples came to ask Jesus, “Who is considered to be the greatest in heaven’s kingdom realm?” Jesus called a little one to his side and said to them, “Learn this well: Unless you dramatically change your way of thinking and become teachable like a little child, you will never be able to enter in. Whoever continually humbles himself to become like this little child is the greatest one in heaven’s kingdom realm. And if you tenderly care for this little one on my behalf, you are tenderly caring for me.” Matthew 18:1-5 TPT
“AT THAT time the disciples came up and asked Jesus, Who then is [really] the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And He called a little child to Himself and put him in the midst of them, And said, Truly I say to you, unless you repent (change, turn about) and become like little children [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving], you can never enter the kingdom of heaven [at all]. Whoever will humble himself therefore and become like this little child [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving] is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives and accepts and welcomes one little child like this for My sake and in My name receives and accepts and welcomes Me.” Matthew 18:1-5 AMPC
Trusting. Lowly. Loving. Forgiving.
Lord help us to truly see as You see! Even kings on this earth and some “spiritual generals” may not inherit as most would presume in heavens Kingdom because they already received their reward on earth.
Restore our wonder and desire to serve and love You wholeheartedly without question (doubt) or shame.
You may feel overlooked here on earth and in some respects like a child, but be encouraged because Heaven is looking, listening and watching.
May we be known by Love. Faith. Humilty. Obedience. Character.
This morning the Holy Spirit highlighted to me that today was the first day of summer. June 21 begins summer solstice, the day with the greatest amount of possible daylight and the shortest night.
Immediately I felt in my spirit today was a day of transitioning and turnover. Prophetically, this your shortest night and a day of TURN OVER. The long nights of battle and fatigue are coming to an end. Here begins the transition to rest, recompense, and provision in the long days of light under the warmth of the Son.
I am reminded of a vision I had a few months ago in prayer. I saw a breached baby in the womb, and I kept prophesying for the baby to turn. There is much to say regarding the vision, though for today, I believe the Lord is saying many have been carrying His promise faithfully and are ready to deliver but the circumstances have seemed impossible just as it is with delivering a breached baby.
Today I prophecy your circumstances to TURN! What looks right side up in this world is upside down in the Kingdom of Heaven. I release angels to guard you and what you are carrying. You will deliver safely and the Lord will protect the promise!
I see rest and refreshing as you are still and KNOW that He is God. Your Deliverer is here. The shift comes as you fully shift your eyes upon Him.
“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”Psalms 46:10 NKJV
“And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.” Exodus 14:13 NKJV
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
