THE HOUR OF MYSTERIES REVEALED (revisited) – A Calling Back To Sanctification

Over the last few weeks the Lord has been reminding me of a prophetic word I released in March of 2020 titled, “The Hour Of Mysteries Revealed”. A prophetic word based from a vision revealing the exposure of global leadership, the removing and appointing of Kings through the book of Daniel. When I asked the Lord what was on His heart I heard in the Spirit 1 Corinthians 5, which is very direct and needs no interpretation. The Lord is presently dealing with the Church and its leaders globally for sin and specifically for the sin of sexual immorality. Relating back to the vision the Lord said the Church was going through a “liver detox” and after over a year of opportunity to repent, I believe the Lord is extending opportunity for mercy before His divine exposure and judgement. The name Daniel in Hebrew means “God is my judge” and though mercy triumphs over judgement, the Lord is both Judge and Bridegroom King.

“It is actually reported [everywhere] that there is sexual immorality among you, a kind of immorality that is condemned even among the [unbelieving] Gentiles: that someone has [an intimate relationship with] his father’s wife. And you are proud and arrogant! You should have mourned in shame so that the man who has done this [disgraceful] thing would be removed from your fellowship! Your boasting [over the supposed spirituality of your church] is not good [indeed, it is vulgar and inappropriate]. Do you not know that [just] a little leaven ferments the whole batch [of dough, just as a little sin corrupts a person or an entire church]? 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.” 1 Corinthians 5:1-2, 6-7 AMP

As Christians we have been born again into a new life; we have been changed, cleansed, set apart, and the Lord is calling us back to sanctification through behavior. He has cleansed us for Himself, and if we are going to be a people who bear His Name we have to be consecrated and holy to Him. “And such were some of you [before you believed]. But you were washed [by the atoning sacrifice of Christ], you were sanctified [set apart for God, and made holy], you were justified [declared free of guilt] in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the [Holy] Spirit of our God [the source of the believer’s new life and changed behavior].” 1 Corinthians 6:11 AMP. When one is sexually immoral they sin against their own body, and yet as a Christian our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit; therefore this sin explicitly wars against our union, intimacy and oneness with Christ and directly effects the Church as fornicators will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven (Ephesians 6:9-10,16-20). The liver is the largest solid organ in our created bodies and its main function is to remove toxins from our blood supply. This deep cleaning in the Church is imperative for the end time Bridal message of the Lord’s second coming, as He is returning for His pure, spotless, holy and set apart Bride (Ephesians 5:27). Let it be said, in this hour the fear of the Lord is returning to the global church as the Bridegroom King wars against those who have defiled His Bride, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.” Matthew 3:2

THE HOUR OF MYSTERIES REVEALED

This morning, March 19, 2020, as I felt the pull to go into the Word of God I opened my Bible and thought I was going to one book and when I looked down I was in another (Daniel) that I had not turned to – though immediately, “The secret is revealed to Daniel” was highlighted to me. I could feel the Spirit of The Lord hovering here, and my eyes went to Daniel 2:19 “Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a vision of the night and Daniel blessed the God of Heaven.”

After reading more of the surrounding scriptures in Daniel chapter two, I went to the woods to pray and ask the Lord what He was wanting to say as I could sense there was more, there was a certain and unusual weight on these Words today. After making stops here and there to take notice of a mix of new buds on trees and small emerging flowers along with muddy terrain and areas of stagnant waters, when my walk was almost over, very clearly I heard the Spirit of Lord say, “These things will spring forth this spring”. I then googled when the first day of spring was thinking it was some time away, and consequently very surprised to see that is was in fact TODAY, and according to the farmer’s almanac is earlier than it has been in over a century! It was then I knew this was a “now” word, and there is a springing forth and quickening of that which has been hidden and dormant. “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him” Daniel 2:22

As I continued to press into the Lord’s heart over this and wait upon Him I had a vision. And in the vision I saw roots exposed upside down, I was looking closely at the root system and the vision began to pan out and I saw giant trees coming up from the earth but they were upside down with root systems exposed suspended in space. The trees were so large that the root systems could connect to the roots systems of other trees in other countries. Then the vision panned in closer again in an “extreme close up” and I saw (what looked like phone, usb, etc) wires twined in the roots connecting to other nations. Then I began to pan out again and saw the whole earth orbiting in space with trees all around the globe upside down.

As I began to research the trees and their root systems, I came across this commentary. It is as if creation, science and God are prophesying back to us. “Globally, trees are often recognized as the ‘lungs of the world’ because they exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide with the atmosphere. However, this is an understatement. If we think in these terms, trees are also the kidneys of the world as they regulate the flow and use of water by intercepting rain and releasing it slowly to the ground where it can either run off into rivers, or enter the groundwater. Plants can then absorb it for use in photosynthesis. This absorbed water is then transpired back to the atmosphere and blown on the wind until it falls as rain somewhere else. Finally, they are like the heart of the world, as they drive the ecosystems that make the world healthy and function properly.” Quoted from commentary by Roger Leakey (Vice Chairman, International Tree Foundation).

I believe this is a divine hour where the Lord is flipping upside down and turning inside out to expose compromised ‘systems’ in the heart of the world. In our created bodies, the lungs protect the heart, and the kidneys help pass waste and help filter the blood before sending it back to the heart. As roots of trees mimic the lungs in actual function and appearance this is divine exposure to ultimately protect the heart of His created. There has been a “running off’ of tainted waters, but the Lord is exposing so the cleansing may begin.
Isaiah 42:8,9 “I am the Lord, that is My Name; My glory I will not give to another, nor my praise to carved idols. Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.”

Daniel – Hebrew “God is my judge” (by definition: pronounce sentence [for or against] to vindicate or punish, to govern, contend, defend, execute judgment – needs, plead, reason, rule); “strength”

THE BLESSING OF THE LORD IS IN THE YIELDING – HE IS COMING AS JUDGE BUT OFFERING STRENGTH

This is a time in history when the pendulum is swinging publicly, God is judging for or against, removing and establishing kings. He is appointing in this hour for His purpose. This is not a time to resist, but to yield. When we yield to who or what The Lord is for or against, we will be under rooted in strength. In Hebrew, “Strength” is the under meaning of Daniel, “God is my judge”. Symbolically, just as I found myself in the book of Daniel and I did not resist reading the word although it is not what I was going to choose but it was where I was led, America and the Nations will find themselves searching out a different chapter in their lives, they will be interrupted by God their Judge, and if they yield to the change Elohay Mauzi – God Of My Strength will be their undergirding.

He removes kings and establishes kings. Daniel answered, “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and power belong to Him. “It is He who changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and establishes kings. He gives wisdom to the wise And [greater] knowledge to those who have understanding! “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him. “I thank You and praise You, O God of my fathers, For You have given me wisdom and power; Even now You have made known to me what we requested of You, For You have made known to us [the solution to] the king’s matter.” Daniel 2:20,23

THE LORD IS RELEASING KEYS TO UNLOCK THAT WHICH WAS ONCE HIDDEN, HE IS SHARING SECRETS AND GIVING SOLUTIONS

The Lord is sharing these secrets and give solutions with whom He can trust. The consecrated. The Beloved. (Daniel 1: 8-20) Those who have not been heard in the past will now have voice. Those long hidden will now be seen. Many false prophets have been established as kings, but the Lord is making way for the voices of the Pure. I heard in the Spirit, “Misfits you haven’t missed it, God is about to make you His modern mystic”. Like in the vision where the wires were twined in roots, as this cleansing is taking place man made wiring (voice, communication) will be detangled and make way for proclamation of the pure voice of the Lord to be heard throughout the earth. You haven’t missed it, the wait was divine orchestration; as some kings fall, now the priests of the Lord will rise to reign. There will be more unity in the five fold than ever before, because now is the time the Spirit of the Lord will pour out His Spirit on all flesh.

‘And it shall be in the last days,’ says God, ‘That I will pour out My Spirit upon all mankind; And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your young men shall see [divinely prompted] visions, And your old men shall dream [divinely prompted] dreams; Even on My bond-servants, both men and women, I will in those days pour out My Spirit And they shall prophesy. ‘And I will bring about wonders in the sky above And signs (attesting miracles) on the earth below, Blood and fire and smoking vapor. ‘The sun shall be turned into darkness And the moon into blood, Before the great and glorious day of the Lord comes. ‘And it shall be that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord [invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord Jesus] shall be saved (rescued spiritually).’ Acts 2:17-21 (Joel 2:28-32).

THE LORD WILL GIVE YOU AUTHORITY OVER THOSE WHO OPPRESSED YOU

“The king answered Daniel and said, “Most certainly your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, since you have been able to reveal this mystery!” Then the king promoted Daniel [to an exalted position] and gave him many great gifts, and he made him ruler over the entire province of Babylon and chief governor over all the wise men of Babylon.” Daniel 2:47,48

Babylon in Hebrew translates “confusion”. The rulers of this air communicate with confusion (Ephesians 6:12), and thereby the earthly kings rule underneath it. Through this divine exposure there will be a shift, and those who once opposed you will seek you for clarity, those who once suppressed you will seek you for wisdom, those who once despised you will favor you.
Finally, It is not coincidental that we recently celebrated Purim, and it is not coincidental that Passover is upon us, as “It is He who changes the times and seasons.” Daniel 2:21 Let us not forget that Esther found favor with the King, was promoted to Queen and saved an entire race. Let us not forget Daniel was shown secrets from the Lord and was able to interpret the Kings dream thereby saving his own life and his brothers, and later survived the fiery furnace and the lions den. Let us not forget Jesus the sacrificial Lamb has come and resurrected.

Exodus 13:14 “And it shall be when your son asks you in time to come, saying, ‘What does this mean?’ you shall say to him, ‘With a strong and powerful hand the Lord brought us out of Egypt, from the house of bondage and slavery.”

Esther 9:1 “Now in the twelfth month on the thirteenth day when the king’s command and edict were about to be executed, on the very day when the enemies of the Jews had hoped to gain power over them and slaughter them, it happened the other way around so that the Jews themselves gained power over those who hated them.”

The Lord is looking to you son and daughter, He has given you His authority and I hear His voice saying, would you rise up Esther? Would you rise up Daniel? Would you rise up Deborah? Would you rise up Joseph? Would you rise up Rahab? Would you rise up John? Would you rise up Mary? It is time to rise up in the spirit of Elijah and testify to the Spirit of Jesus. Would you prepare the way?

July, A Month To Take Hold Of The Completed Promise

On May 29, 2021 I had a prophetic dream about the month of July. The Lord showed me that many have birthed their promise, but have yet to take hold of it completely. In the dream I was holding my friends baby and was specifically asking to go down to the lake to take a photo of the baby and I. My friend responded that I had to wait for her sister to go before me and that I would have to wait until July to take the picture with the baby. In the dream I was wearing a v-neck bathing suit with a coverup from the waist down, the bathing suit was white with light pink polka-dots. I was dressed and ready to go, holding the baby, and standing where the lake was in visible distance but I had to wait until July. I then immediately went into another dream that confirmed what the baby or ‘promise’ represented.

As I began to interpret with the Lord on this, I looked up the names of the individuals in the dream and then the meaning became crystal clear. My friends name means “God is my oath” or “God is a vow”, her husband’s name means “God is my judge”, the baby’s name means “completely”, their last name means “fire”, and my friends sister’s name means “Christ” or “anointed one”.  Therefore the interpretation of the dream is as God is my Judge, and as God is my Oath, He is watching over the promise and all that He has vowed, and by the power of His Word, Christ is going before to bring it to completion. 

This timing is pivotal because many are going through the last fires before beholding their promise, do not relent even if these fires carry over in July, as you are almost there! July is the seventh month, and seven represents completion and perfection in the Bible.  My birthday is July 1 and the baby will turn seven months July 31. The Lord is going to bring His promises to completion in your life during the month of July, from beginning to end, watch in this window as many will finally be able to see the picture with clarity and with physical reality. I hear the Lord say, “this is the promise that has been refined in the fire” which symbolically ties into the last name of the mother and father of the baby. 

In the dream I wanted to take a picture at the lake with the baby.  My friend and her family live in Michigan, and Michigan is also the state I was born and raised, home of the Great Lakes.  Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area. July will be the beginning of the refreshing of your soul, as you synch with the Lord’s timing and wait for Him to go before you, the Holy Spirit will then totally immerse you into this new land and will work a far superior outcome for you.

The time stamp of the dream was 5.29.21 and coincides with Genesis 5:29, “When Lamech was 182 years old a son was born (vs 28). He named him Noah, saying, This one shall bring us relief and comfort from our work and the [grievous] toil of our hands due to the ground being cursed by the Lord.” Lamech named is son Noah, which means “rest”. Like a Noah, this promise you are holding represents the long awaited rest, new covenant, and land in the new era the Lord has vowed to you. Lamech lived 777 years and 7×3=21; dream date 5.29.21. Additionally, three represents the number of the Spirit and there are (3) 7’s at the end of Lamech’s life and 3 trimesters in pregnancy, not to mention water and the Spirit are closely connected. Symbolically the FATHER is both washing away ties to the old season by the Spirit, reseting you by the Spirit through rest, and bringing to completion that which was born of the Spirit!

ROLLING AWAY EGYPT 

“Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” Hebrews 4:11.  The example of unbelief in this passage is the Israelites who wandered in the desert for 40 years.   As I prepared to release this word on a broadcast recently, the Lord led me to the book of Joshua. The Lord showed me that many have crossed over “the Jordan” from “the 40 years of wilderness” and into their promised land but they had not fully taken possession of it yet. You are in the last stages of healing, so wait on His time! Like the dream, I was holding the baby but had to wait to take the picture. 

Even if the Lord called you to Egypt for a season, He still has to cleanse you from Egypt, and even if the promise was birthed in the desert He still has to cleanse it before you bring it with you and take total possession of your new season and promised land. He is totally cleansing you of your past (even if He called you there), He is removing the dust of the wilderness – those places that no longer serve you, any remaining bondage from the atmosphere, the shame, rejection, fear, and the pain you experienced while waiting. There is a new consecration to walk in holiness and carry the weight of His call and message. I heard the Lord say, “He wants to deliver you, so that He can deliver through you”. You are so close, yet it is crucial you wait out the last stages of the healing! You have crossed the Jordan, you are in the promised land nearly ready to take possession! 

The below scripture is referencing Joshua and the Israelites after they crossed the Jordan. They were in their promised land, though had not taken possession. It was imperative they waited in the camp to heal (from circumcision for consecration) at Gilgal. Once they were healed, then their next assignment was given to them – the strategy for the fall of Jericho. 

“At that time the Lord said to Joshua, Make knives of flint and circumcise the [new generation of] Israelites as before. So Joshua made knives of flint and circumcised the sons of Israel at Gibeath-haaraloth. And this is the reason Joshua circumcised them: all the males of the people who came out of Egypt, all the men of war, had died in the wilderness on the way after they came out of Egypt. Though all the people who came out were circumcised, yet all the people who were born in the wilderness on the way after Israel came out of Egypt had not been circumcised. For the Israelites walked forty years in the wilderness till all who were men of war who came out of Egypt perished, because they did not hearken to the voice of the Lord; to them the Lord swore that He would not let them see the land which the Lord swore to their fathers to give us, a land flowing with milk and honey. So it was their uncircumcised children whom He raised up in their stead whom Joshua circumcised, because the rite had not been performed on the way. When they finished circumcising all the males of the nation, they remained in their places in the camp till they were healed. And the Lord said to Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you. So the name of the place is called Gilgal [rolling] to this day.” Joshua 5:2-9 AMPC

COMPLETE TRANSFORMATION 

 What you are waiting on is the completion of a transformation. It will be worth the wait! Once Joshua and the newly consecrated men observed Passover after being healed (the death of the past being covered by the blood), then Joshua encountered the commander of the army of the Lord. Symbolically the Lord instructed Joshua to remove his sandals because the land he was about to possess was holy and set apart to the Lord (Joshua 5:10-15). Next the Lord would reveal the plan to conquer Jericho (and it’s great wall) but first the Lord asked Joshua to SEE. “The Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have given Jericho into your hand, with its king and the mighty warriors.” Joshua 6:2.  I believe the Lord highlighted this passage to me to say we need not look at the wall, natural obstacles, and giants in front of us.  Some are even in the spirit in their promised land, though focusing on their spiritual opponent verses on what the Lord has said. This is a pivotal hour to be raised up in the Spirit and SEE with your spiritual eye what the Lord has given you, not the obstacle in front of you.

The Lord has been using the number four to speak to me for some time now.  Four represents the fulness of the earth, times and seasons, transformation and authority. In complete metamorphosis there are four cycles of life that yield a complete transformation.  The Lord highlighted Joshua 6:4 when speaking of the instructions for the fall of Jericho. “Also, seven priests shall carry seven trumpets [made] of rams’ horns ahead of the ark; then on the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets.” There are (4) 7’s listed: 1) seven priests 2) seven trumpets 3) seventh day 4) seven times. The Lord said there is a complete transformation happening within the consecrated Body right now, and you must wait for that completion to be revealed before moving ahead. As 1 Peter 2:9 writes, God’s people are a royal priesthood. The four seven’s can also be interpreted these are the times and days the voice of the Lord will be heard from His priests; those who 1) have consecrated hearts  2) listen to the voice of the Lord  3) see in the Spirit [faith] 4) obey the wisdom of the Lord 5) move at His authority (march)  6) carry the presence and message of the Lord  7) declare He is Lord. 

GOING OUT WITH JOY

Reconnecting the dream, I was wearing a white v-neck bathing suit, with pink polka dots. In the dream I had an awareness of a desire in my heart, because of the v-neck style and when I asked the Lord about it He said, “nurturing”.  White represents purity and consecration and light pink is typically associated with love and romance. Pink is created by blending the colors red and white (passion and purity), it stands for nurturing femininity, symbolizing youth and good health.  Men and women alike have longed to nurture this promise the Lord has given, this promise that many are holding now. I hear the Lord say, “He is making all things new again, there will be no fear to nurture for the vision you are carrying shall come to pass”. 

Polka Dots are symbolic of happiness. The iconic song writer Frank Sinatra had his first hit in 1940, “Polka dots and moon beams”. Though the 1940’s are known as time of war, they are also remembered for commitment, unity, love and romance. The name Frank means “free man” (wikipedia.com), I believe the Lord is liberating the forgotten song of your heart to sound again, as you release this song you will radiate and beam again from the touch of Love. The Lord is restoring the innocence and the nostalgia that was warn away in the desert, He is restoring your pure and innocent love for Him, and the way you relate to others. In the consecration He has cut away the rough edges, and has smoothed over the past seasons with new oil of gladness and joy. 

The Lord prompted me to look at the Hebraic calendar, and I found the month of July holds two different celebrations. “The name of the fifth month on the Jewish calendar, Av, literally means “father.” It is customary to add the name “Menachem,” which means “comforter” or consoler” – so Menachem Av.”(chabad.org). On the 15th Av, 5781 (July 24) “The end of dying in the desert” is celebrated (chabad.org). This end of 40 long years of dying correlates with allowing Egypt to be rolled away from us and complete transformation written above. The Lord is  transitioning you from old covenants to the new covenant during this time. I also found the celebration of Tu B’Av, the Jewish Day of Love celebrated on the same day. When Tu B’Av was celebrated as an ancient holiday, the unwed daughters of Jerusalem would dress in white (sometimes borrowed linen garments) and dance in the vineyards and whoever did not have a wife would come to find his bride. Differing from the 1940’s V day’s of WWII (victory in the war), and the V-neck in my bathing suit, the modern Israeli celebration of Tu B’Av is similar to the V-day of St. Valentine’s Day. I believe the Lord is saying this is a time and season to receive the Father’s nurturing love toward you as He redeems your promised land, and makes you victorious over His enemies. “Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land.” Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight” and “The Bride of God,” for the LORD delights in you and will claim you as his bride.” Isaiah 62:4 (NLT)

As you wait upon the Lord walking in the Spirit with careful yieldedness to His leadership, you will be sure to not only birth but behold your long awaited promise! Prepare to take the picture! “You will leave Babylon with joy; you will be led out to the city in peace. The mountains and hills will burst into singing and the trees will shout for joy.” Isaiah 55:12 (GNT)

HAVE YOU DIED TODAY?

In the world of the Spirit, dreams are fulfilled through dying to them in the natural world and giving the Spirit precedence in your life. When I graduated Bible college many years ago, the Lord told me to “die to your dreams and visions so I can resurrect them”. And there began my journey as a young woman of dying to myself to learn how to allow Christ to live through me, and one of my founding messages I share often.

Death has become a center point of my testimony because here I have found resurrection life. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:11. In my love of word studies, long ago I discovered the word testimony used in this scripture reference in Revelation is the Greek word marturia (evidence given) from the word martus which is where we get the word martyr. So many people want a “testimony”, and while it is good to testify of ones overcoming – the true testament or evidence given of life is of ones dying to self. So if you want a testimony you need to die and ‘let the Overcomer out‘, for it is because of the victory of the cross, we have life.

“Jesus said to all of his followers, “If you truly desire to be my disciple, you must disown your life completely, embrace my ‘cross’ as your own, and surrender to my ways. For if you choose self-sacrifice, giving up your lives for my glory, you will discover true life. But if you choose to keep your lives for yourselves, you will lose what you try to keep.” Luke 9:23-24 TPT

“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

When you allow the life of Christ to flow through you, Heaven and earth align to see His love and powerful works readily move through you. You will be in sync with the Lord’s plans and purposes and divine alignment will become the standard as you walk in the footsteps of the Resurrected King who has gone before you.

Have you died today?

The Church needs to get in the tub … scrub a dub dub 🛁🧼 It’s time to wash off the residue of the old systems, ways of thinking, sin, ungodly character, the effects under witchcraft and Jezebel rule including jealously, fear, and control. The Lord is returning, and it’s time we cleanse ourselves.

“Therefore, since we have these [great and wonderful] promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, completing holiness [living a consecrated life—a life set apart for God’s purpose] in the fear of God.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭7:1‬ ‭AMP‬‬

“But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap; [Rev. 6:12-17.] He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the priests, the sons of Levi, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord offerings in righteousness.”
‭‭Malachi‬ ‭3:2-3‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Building In The New Era

As we are rebuilding in the new era it is important to note that the new blueprints do not change from the church of Acts in that the foundation is laid by the Apostles and Prophets, and most importantly Jesus Himself the Chief Cornerstone.

The reconnected heart to the Bridegroom will be the marking flame that distinguishes the old plans from the new. “Marriage is the beautiful design of the Almighty, a great and sacred mystery—meant to be a vivid example of Christ and his church.” Ephesians 5:32 TPT

“You are rising like the perfectly fitted stones of the temple; and your lives have been built up together upon the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets, and best of all, you are connected to the Head Cornerstone of the building, the Anointed One, Jesus Christ himself! This entire building is under construction and is continually growing under his supervision until it rises up completed as the holy temple of the Lord himself.” Ephesians 2:20-21 TPT

His dwelling place is for the married ones – we are building a permanent home for marriage (and family) through union with Him. “This means that God is transforming each one of you into the Holy of Holies, his dwelling place, through the power of the Holy Spirit living in you!” Ephesians 2:22 TPT

APOSTOLIC BOLDNESS 🕊🔥

As you many of you may know I have been writing & speaking about boldness and power for awhile now. Today I discovered something new in the word boldness in the book of Acts that can mean “freedom of speech”. I love word studies, they are so illuminating and help reveal Scriptures deep inner meaning! I believe this is very timely and what the Lord desires for all His followers. Ironically, I have been praying some new ‘dangerous’ prayers; ‘Lord make me like an original apostle, help me to understand You like they understood and knew You…’ I pray this passage below encourages and empowers you today!

“So now, Lord, listen to their threats to harm us. Empower us, as your servants, to speak the word of God freely and courageously. Stretch out your hand of power through us to heal, and to move in signs and wonders by the name of your holy Son, Jesus!” As they prayed the earth shook beneath them, causing the building they were in to tremble. Each one of them was filled with the Holy Spirit, and they proclaimed the word of God with unrestrained boldness.” ‭‭Acts‬ ‭4:29-31‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Brian Simmons writes in the footnote for the word boldness – t 4:31b “The Greek word is parresia. This involves more than confidence; it was a free-flowing, unrestrained boldness. It can also mean “freedom of speech.” Parresia carries nuances that are not easily brought over into English. The person who speaks with parresia will say everything that is on his mind with no restraint, flowing out of his heart with confidence. It involves being frank and honest, hiding nothing and speaking directly to the heart. Most often it is a word used for public speaking. It refers to speech that is not tailored to make everyone happy but to speak the truth, in spite of what that may cost. It is the courage to speak truth into the ears of others. This was reserved for only the highest rank of Greek citizens, not people of other lands or slaves. The right to speak freely was an essential aspect of Athenian democracy. Although it is sometimes associated with negative speech, in this context parresia refers to an unrestrained boldness. There was a Greek idiom that said essentially, “If you tell me the truth no matter what that truth turns out to be, I will not punish you.” This was known as the Parresiastic Contract. See M. Foucault, “Discourse and Truth: The Problematization of Parresia,” six lectures given at the University of California at Berkeley, 1983, ed. by Joseph Pearson in 1985. Parresia is found also in Mark 8:32; John 7:4, 13, 26; 10:24; 11:14, 54; 2 Cor. 3:12; 7:4; Eph. 3:12; 6:19; Phil. 1:20; and numerous other places.”

Where Is The Power?

The Lord said to me yesterday many do not walk in the Spirit’s power because they refuse to walk through times of testing.

The Gospel has never been weak – but the Church and it’s Body are weak when we do not allow the perfect power-filled Word to test us. We do not have endurance because our faith hasn’t been tested. (James 1:2-4). We settle for comfort, and complain God has not “done” for us. The fruit is immaturity that tastes not the sweetness of the Vine.

Maturity is not how much you “know”, maturity is how much you yield. Mature sons and daughters yield to the leading of testing and pruning. The Holy Spirt led Jesus into the wilderness to be tested and 40 days later He came out “armed with the Holy Spirit’s power”. Where is the power? It will be given to you to the degree that you yield to the Holy Spirit.

“From the moment of his baptism, Jesus overflowed with the Holy Spirit. He was taken by the Spirit from the Jordan into the wilderness of Judea to experience for forty days the ordeal of testing by the accuser. He ate no food during this time and ended his forty-day fast very hungry.” Luke‬ ‭4:1-2‬ ‭TPT‬‬
40 Days later ….
“Then Jesus, armed with the Holy Spirit’s power, returned to Galilee, and his fame spread throughout the region.” Luke‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Dailies On Vine

A Worthy Heart

This morning I had a powerful vision I pray blesses you. I was praying in the Spirit and I sensed I was in the courts of Heaven. There was a weight on my heart, and I very much felt the accusations of the adversary. I had bound these spirits to the foot of the cross in English, and broke any agreement that they were part of my identity. However, there was still something being prayed through me. As I yielded to the Spirit I went into a vision and saw Jesus’ hand (index finger) writing w o r t h y in His blood over my exposed heart.
I asked the Lord for Scripture and two passages came to mind.

“So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One.” Romans‬ ‭8:1‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“Your hearts can soar with joyful gratitude when you think of how God made you worthy to receive the glorious inheritance freely given to us by living in the light. He has rescued us completely from the tyrannical rule of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom realm of his beloved Son. For in the Son all our sins are canceled and we have the release of redemption through his very blood.”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:12-14‬ ‭TPT‬‬

The blood of Jesus closes the case in the courts! The enemy uses his index “pointer” finger to accuse the body, Jesus uses his index finger to authenticate truth over your heart and prophetically point you to the legitimacy of your identity. The enemy lies to intimidate with ‘all that you are not’, while Jesus speaks truth into all that you are.

Revelation 12:10 writes that the accuser of our brothers and sisters (who are the body of Christ) relentlessly accuses us before God day and night. As we grow and mature in our spiritual journey warfare shifts in awareness and intensity, but one thing will remain; the truth of God’s Word. Sometimes we will find ourselves in the courts of Heaven (and not always on the defense) but when your heart is pure and united to Christ’s, you can remain confident you will “win the case”, for the release of redemption is through His very blood. His blood made you worthy to receive this beautiful inheritance- beloved identity in Him to rule and reign with Him.
May we look to Jesus beholding all that HE is, may we incline our ear to His voice and hear the words of life from the Author and finisher of our faith. (Hebrews 12:2).
