Releasing The Treasure

There comes a time where what has been deposited into you by the Spirit and pondered in the heart is to be spoken forth from the mouth. It requires wisdom, patience, humility and fear of the Lord to release such treasures. Though Mary pondered in her heart all that Shepherds had prophecied and spoken – “But Mary treasured all these things, giving careful thought to them and pondering them in her heart.” ‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:19‬ ‭AMP‬‬, there came a time to speak them forth and for the mysteries to be made known.

This is a time for the revealing of the Son, His plans, and His purposes; we must speak what the Great Shepherd has deposited within. His revealing brings joy and Glory to the Father. Mary birthed and beheld the sign ~ the shepherds were told about it, where to find it and also spoke of the sign. The King Shepherd is leading … His staff is guiding and His rod protects.

“The good person out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” Luke 6:45

Release the treasure of good news that is on the inside of you!

Restore The Spark, A Call To Return To First Love

Where are we going? We are returning to the heights from which we have fallen, reattaching to the heart of our Beloved. Fitting that the Holy Spirit would choose John the Beloved and Revelator to write to the Church of Ephesus this message from God the Father, delivered to him by an Angel, ““To the angel (divine messenger) of the church in Ephesus write: These are the words of the One who holds [firmly] the seven stars [which are the angels or messengers of the seven churches] in His right hand, the One who walks among the seven golden lampstands (the seven churches): ‘I know your deeds and your toil, and your patient endurance, and that you cannot tolerate those who are evil, and have tested and critically appraised those who call themselves apostles (special messengers, personally chosen representatives, of Christ), and [in fact] are not, and have found them to be liars and impostors; and [I know that] you [who believe] are enduring patiently and are bearing up for My name’s sake, and that you have not grown weary [of being faithful to the truth]. But I have this [charge] against you, that you have left your first love [you have lost the depth of love that you first had for Me]. So remember the heights from which you have fallen, and repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, your sinful behavior—seek God’s will] and do the works you did at first [when you first knew Me]; otherwise, I will visit you and remove your lampstand (the church, its impact) from its place—unless you repent. Yet you have this [to your credit], that you hate the works and corrupt teachings of the Nicolaitans [that mislead and delude the people], which I also hate. He who has an ear, let him hear and heed what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes [the world through believing that Jesus is the Son of God], I will grant [the privilege] to eat [the fruit] from the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of God.’” Revelation 2:1-7 AMP

Ephesus is a Greek word that can be translated as “desirable” or “darling” and one that a Greek bridegroom would use for a girl he desired to marry (footnotes TPT). Symbolically, the Church continues to be called higher, wooed by the Holy Spirit to arise and meet with her Beloved Bridegroom King. I believe the global Church is moving from “knowing” to “experiencing” in this next season. Recently while studying scripture, asking the Lord for a plumbline for my own experiences and inquiring about this next year, I heard in the Spirit “knowledge without experience is void of intimacy” (December 17, 2021). Experiencing what we know through encounter will set ablaze our hearts for this One who desires to marry us.

The call of the Bridegroom is beckoning each one of our hearts, “come up here”. When we repent – turn from facing idols and chasing foxes and all that hinders us from His fiery love we are restored to the highest heights that are reserved for devoted lovers of His presence. A place intended for all, but a climb few are willing to trek. Repent simply means turn and come back up to the pent house, be restored to the higher way of thinking and living. In both realms, spirit or natural a penthouse or mountain top will provide the best views, the most privacy, and the least amount of noise or distraction. In the natural penthouses are financially the most costly to own or rent. They are defined as an apartment or dwelling situated on the roof of a building, or top floor. Likewise, spiritually dwelling here is costly as well, as the Psalmist writes, ““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. He shall receive blessing from the Lord, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face. Selah” Psalms 24:3-6 NKJV.

A life of yieldedness is costly, though as I often encourage it is in the yielding that we yield.PRODUCE defined is to give birth or rise to : YIELD ; to oversee the making of ; to cause to have existence or to happen: BRING ABOUT ; to give being, form, or shape to: MAKE ; the amount produced : YIELD ; agricultural products and especially fresh fruits and vegetables as distinguished from grain and other staple crops. You can only produce good and acceptable fruit from the seed of intimacy. The seed of intimacy is reserved for the devoted lovers, those who experience Who they know. Those who Know the Beloved by experience are the betrothed, and some are already married sons and daughters who have been overshadowed by the Almighty – these chosen ones are the continual dwellers of His presence and the keepers of covenant.

The spark must first be restored, and then we will experience the flames of first love – after “doing the works we did when we first knew Him”. November 16, 2021 in a prophetic dream the Lord showed me a new apostolic marriage movement marked by creative miracles, fire and glory. The dream began with myself wrapped in a single white sheet and walking over to a sleeping mat also with a white fitted and single sheet and pillow with case that was in the middle of the “family room”. I knew this is where I was going to sleep for one or more nights until this brief assignment was over. I asked the owner of the home who is also a respected and well-known Apostle in our current day if I could ask her a question. We then left her vacation home and she took me to a church that didn’t necessarily resemble church from the exterior and we entered from the outside from a lower level which was the foundation of the Church. People in attendance, (made up of many couples and some singles too) started to dance in a train line and made their way over to where I was sitting on the opposite side in the front of the church. After I was in the back in a slightly separate room with an open doorway to the sanctuary with several others waiting to go out and fully be part of this train movement (trains in the prophetic are symbolic of the apostolic). While we were waiting I was praying for couples and seeing creative miracles, things non-existent with the human eye become visible in the natural as I decreed and “drew in the air” with my left hand. The living substance that was released from my left hand was glowing, fiery, living and sparkly. Left handed in this instance represents the creative miracles as the right hemisphere of one’s brain coordinates the left side of the body, and performs tasks that have do with creativity and the arts. Fire and glory were also being released for this new end-time movement. The Lord is bringing us back to our foundations to purify us for the sanctified global Church rising. “You are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus Himself the chief Cornerstone.” Ephesians 2:20 AMPC.

It is not a coincidence that marriage and family will lead the end time revival movement with fire and glory. Why wouldn’t marriage lead when that is what Christ is returning for? Furthermore, Christ is returning for a pure and spotless Bride, one who has cleansed herself from the stains and sin of this world, therefore fire is necessary for continual purification at the foundation and also denotes passionate lovers who carry plenty of oil who burn brightly for their Bridegroom King. As the Deliverer-Prophet Moses boldly asked, “show me your glory” while atop the mountain, so is glory symbolic of intimate face to face encounter and a commitment to go only where the Lord would lead (Exodus 33). These presence people will be marked by fire around them and glory in their midst. “For I,’ says the Lord, ‘will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.’ ” Zechariah 2:5 NKJV. Before this movement can fully launch I believe the Lord is restoring the spark individually within hearts; between themselves and the Lord and secondly within marital relationships. Healing not yet imagined will transpire between men and women and will be so freeing that the true hearts “longing for the Beloved” will be tangibly and authentically expressed through purity in unity within marriage and with God.

Near the end of this dream I offered to pray for a woman sitting on the floor who happened to be wearing brown boots. She kept insisting “tomorrow”, though I knew in the dream it had to be then. The invitation for this radical impartation and transformation was a “now moment”, tomorrow would be too late. And sadly, she declined. Tomorrow may not come for some, and it is a critical hour to stay in step and heed the Spirit’s call. Respond and call back to the sound of His wooing voice. The brown boots represent walking in humility, but unfortunately they were not utilized. It is humility to allow the Spirit to lift you, we must not wait to be strong enough “get up on our own”. The Lord desires to strengthen you, for it is not by works but by grace you have been saved. “Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.” Jeremiah 33:3.

“Then suddenly, after I wrote down these messages, I saw a portal open into the heavenly realm, and the same trumpet-voice I heard speaking with me at the beginning said, “Ascend into this realm! I want to reveal to you what must happen after this.” Revelation 4:1 TPT

Can you hear the voice of your Bridegroom King calling? ‘My Darling, My desired one – the one I long to marry and who My soul loves – come now and change your mind, you have fallen from the heights and forgotten the depths of my unfailing love. Come up here my fair one, great and mighty things I have yet to show you. Unity with Me allows you to experience My love where you are wholly complete, secure, and transformed. You’ve been conditioning for the climb, will you come now and be with Me’?

“The one I love calls to me: Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. Come away with me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to my heart and lead you out. For now is the time, my beautiful one.” Song of Songs 2:10 TPT

Who Do You Know?

Who do you know?

The mind of the world focuses on who they know, while the mind of the Spirit focuses on knowing Him.

We were created to receive validation from knowing God, Adam’s eyes opened to see a loving Father admiring His created son. After the fall, most perpetually seek to be known to fulfill this need, but unfortunately the gaze is fixed in the wrong direction or the wrong Person. The system of this world is still striving to be known but by false gods; each other, people with influence, power, etc. These are false gods when the desire is greater to be known by one another than by the One who created you.

When you focus on who you know on this earth it gives a false validation and sense of identity and belonging that creates pride. It is humility to look to God, to be dependent upon Him, to know His ways, to believe Him, obey Him, and love Him.

“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”? But he continues to pour out more and more grace upon us. For it says, “God resists you when you are proud but continually pours out grace when you are humble.”” James 4:5-6‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Humility is the doorway to knowing and seeing God.

This attached photo is ”picture art” I made circa 2010 inspired from the humble door I photographed in Africa. So today I am adding an old edited photo with a newly written excerpt that has roots in an ageless message. A message chasing me in my lifetime since I can remember – and perhaps it’s chasing you too … Do you know Him?

It’s Time To Move Closer

The full measure of the goodness of God can only be experienced while remaining in covenant with Him, and faithfulness in covenant is the key to lasting oneness with Him. You must cherish the Lord’s heart also; it is good for you to draw near to Him that you may first know Him, and then tell of His glorious works.

It is time for you to get your own oil, time for your own personal experience with Him. I see for some that you have had many personal experiences but have become satisfied with the distant flames of others. Second hand experiences and encounters are encouraging to hear and can build our faith, though I believe the Lord is asking for more – particularly in this hour. The Lord is asking more from each one of us, leading us into a greater depth of commitment and maturity. For some your fire in the camp has gone out and you continue to try and relight the fire and you are perplexed why you can not start the fire but the Lord would say it is time to move. Keep climbing higher up the mountian of the Lord, the Spirit will lead you and He will come closer still. 🔥

“But as for me, it is good for me to draw near to God; I have made the Lord God my refuge and placed my trust in Him, that I may tell of all Your works.” Psalm 73:28

Voices of Approval

We must consider the weight and value we place on one another’s voices, is it higher than the ideas, truths, and Voice of the Lord? There is One Voice that ultimately marks us with approval.

“I have come in My Father’s name and with His power, and you do not receive Me [because your minds are closed]; but if another comes in his own name and with no authority or power except his own, you will receive him and give your approval to an imposter. How can you believe [in Me], when you [seek and] receive glory and approval from one another, and yet you do not seek the glory and approval which comes from the one and only God?” John‬ ‭5:43-44‬ ‭AMP‬‬

In all things we should imitate Christ, and most importantly where He received identity and where He did not. “I do not receive glory and approval from men” John 5:41.

These are perilous times and we are at a critical juncture in history when we can not afford to be led astray by even the slightest bit of human idea or opinion that would potentially deter us from the narrow path. We must eagerly await for the Bridegrooms Voice. “He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands by and listens to him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice.” John 3:29 Here in this friendship is your approval. May joy and peace be yours as you patiently stand by, and eagerly expect His Voice!

THRIVING IN CHALLENGING CONDITIONS; LOOKING UP THROUGH THE CRAPE MYRTLE TREE

Last evening with not many words left to utter I laid on the grass looking up into the sky through the Crape Myrtle tree (pictured). Pondering wild faith and long suffering, have I done all I know to do? Have I yielded? And then after having done all you know to do – contend and stand and believe … oh it made me tired just pressuring myself. Spent, I laid back into the grass and gazed upward. It’s ok to not have the answers and it’s ok to not understand. But it’s not ok to have doubt and unbelief in my heart, and this is the great wrestle as I want no part of the later. Earlier in the morning I was re-reading out of Hebrews 11, 12 to strengthen my soul in my weakness, “faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses”, and then dialoguing with Lord ‘How do I obtain this type of faith written about of hero’s of old?’. The Bible writes that out of reverence Noah built the ark unto the Lord. Just thinking of his example leaves me speechless.

Physical realities were defied early on for me. I visited heaven before my brother and sister passed away, and I also dreamt of heaven often. I spent time with Jesus, and even after the accident at just newly five years old I had my first out of body encounter with Jesus in the sky. I carried a lot of faith, I even believed years after my siblings passings that they could be raised from the dead. I would say (assuredly) until more recently that I carry the gift of faith. I remind the Lord often what I believe He has spoken to me, the type of person that will hold on until the very end!

Understanding warfare and the Spirit realm is not new to me. I am not an expert, but I have operated in a Seer anointing (see, know and feel) since I can remember. For example, I cried through weddings as a young child because I was grieved, I knew it was not right, and the consequence of those unions I would later experience and see was detrimental, so much so that just weeks after one of the marriages I witnessed the man try to kill his wife and I had to get help. Another example is the night of the accident we made a stop at a home and when I walked through the door I felt a thick blanket of evil (I was not even 5 years old), within minutes of leaving the fatal car accident occurred. Years and years of experiencing the Lord and the spirit realm like this, and yet recently I question myself like never before. I question my ability to hear rightly, to discern, to apply, to steward, and my love for God. Many in the Body of Christ, including seasoned leaders and prophets are experiencing this type of mental warfare as well.

The Body has been assaulted, pushed, pruned, and tested like never before. The mental pressure coming against me recently felt like it was going to break me. Just when you think the air is clear, it’s suddenly muddy and confusing again – another reason we are to bear one another’s burdens and cover each other in prayer. Jesus sent His disciples out two by two, as there is power in agreement and that same power we need now more than ever to make it in this last hour. While there is warfare coming from our adversary, most of (if not all) the pruning and testing is from the Lord! You may be thinking it’s cruel, as I for one recently said to the Lord through hot tears, “why must You test me so harshly?”. I mean for real though, are most of our lives on the line? What feels harsh really isn’t in the scheme of things, though no doubt it may be painful. You may have heard me express some of this over the last nearly two years, though I believe some of the reasons we have been in a long season of intense testing are: 1. “If you don’t make it now, you will not make it later” We are building stamina. 2. In general we have been ‘asleep’ for a very long time, our muscles and movements need to be strengthened within the Body as a whole as we regain power and come back into the awareness of our true identity in Christ. Think endurance and strength training. Our minds are being sharpened as we go deeper into the foundation of the Word of God. 3. The mental warfare is so strong because the Lord is trying to sync us with His systems, and rid us of the patterns of the world. This is a transformation of the mind, which is sometimes the most difficult but the most essential. 4. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken as we are inheriting an unshakable Kingdom, therefore we must also be unshakable! 5. The Lord is returning for a pure and spotless Bride who has made herself ready, she is mature. Mature people bear fruit, and good fruit can only be present when the branches have been pruned. Mature sons and daughters yield to pruning and testing because they trust their Maker’s touch, and know it connects them more closely to His heart. 6. The Lord is preparing us for rulership and authority to inherit nations with Him. 7. Purification is for the glory of our King, that we may become the transformed. And if you endure until the end you will receive a victor’s crown!

It was August 27, 2020 I heard in the Spirit the word, “forbearance”. One of the definitions of forbearance is the exercise of patience; long suffering. More than any other Fruit of the Spirit listed in Galatians 5, I believe we need the fruit of patience as we ready ourselves for the return of the Lord. Most people have not endured the wait for this fruit to be developed, however 1 Corinthians 13 writes that love (which also happens to be the first listed fruit of the spirit) suffers long, is patient and kind. Another version writes that love endures with patience and serenity. You see, it’s one thing to be able to carry something for a period of time, but the longer we have been trained to carry the further the distance we can go through the endurance built. From a larger perspective as those called to be carriers of God’s presence we have been training for the fulfillment of the Habakuk 2:14 scripture, “But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” One of the definitions of glory in the Bible is described as weight, the weighty presence of God. Some have misunderstood this season of long suffering as crushing for punishment, but it is crushing for endurance, for oil, for wheat, and new wine. I was reminded of an encounter I had near that time when I heard “forbearance” in 2020, my arms became arms of bronze and my fingers like flames of fire. I was going through such heated testing and training in the summer of 2020 that I had manifestations where my arms from my elbows down were completely red and my face as well, and later started experiencing encounters marked feeling heavy weight over me while sleeping, and in my arms and legs. While the lessons in the testings have shifted, they have not totally dissipated. “Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing.” James 1: 2-4 AMP. When I was in my 20’s I had a dream that I gave birth to a toddler. In the dream I named him, and I know by the meaning of the boy’s name what this represents. It is a promise that has yet to come to pass, one of the main reasons for my long suffering and need of endurance, however if we assume how can a woman birth a toddler lest it kill her? Exactly, the Lord is strengthening us to carry His glory, but also to birth His divine will and plans that are bigger than us into the earth realm. We can agree that it is physically impossible for a woman to birth a toddler, which is why we must come into agreement with the Spirit. What the Lord is doing is supernatural, it is not by force or by strength, not by might or by power, but by His Spirit! (Zechariah 4:6).

I’ve often said to myself over this last year, “if you can get through this, you can get through anything”. Giving up on MY ability, last evening while looking through the Crape Myrtle tree I thought how vibrant the flowers were, yet it didn’t seem very appropriate for the autumn season. I asked my friend what type of tree it was, and then looked up characteristics, “The colorful, long-lasting blossoms of crape myrtle make it a showpiece in classic Southern gardens. But it is not a particularly delicate plant and it can thrive in conditions that would be a challenge for other plants.” While I may argue that I am more inwardly delicate than not (insert smile), I agree this is a prophetic picture of beauty in the long suffering; I see a parallel in long-lasting vibrant blossoms and long suffering. Rest in the yielding. An ability to thrive in challenging conditions. You are being made strong, rooted, and destined to overcome. Take a breath, look up, receive grace and mercy.

“Therefore the Lord waits [expectantly] and longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed (happy, fortunate) are all those who long for and wait for Him [since He will never fail them].”
Isaiah 30:18 AMP

“For this reason the Lord is still waiting to show his favor to you so he can show you his marvelous love. He waits to be gracious to you. He sits on his throne ready to show mercy to you. For Yahweh is the Lord of justice, faithful to keep his promises. Overwhelmed with bliss are all who will entwine their hearts in him, waiting for him to help them.”
Isaiah 30:18 TPT

RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT AND REPENTANCE RECONNECTS US BACK TO THE PROMISE

[This was written and released one year ago today, September 20, 2020 – sometimes messages need to be heard repeatedly, especially prophetic words. They are like hammers chiseling away stone.]

If we fail to call a spade a spade – what then shall we call it? Compromise. Falling short of the promise. Prepare your heart… the divide is coming.

I’ve been writing and sharing on this for awhile but I’m going to herald again as I believe we are nearer still to seeing The Lord move amongst us as Righteous Judge. To Judge means to decide for or against. We need the The Lord to come as righteous Judge and declare, “Yes I am for this, No I am not for this”. We have long misunderstood judgment but it is actually a good thing! It is His goodness that leads us to repent. To repent means to turn and change your thinking and be restored to the pent house – ‘the higher way of thinking’. The fire in His eyes is jealous love for YOU! Prepare your hearts believers- it starts with us!

A month ago I had a week of continuous dreams of Jezebel, the leviathan and the snake present in the church which I shared with you. This morning I had a vision and I saw the skin of the snake divided right down the middle of its back – it did not shed off but came off because of the split as with a sword cut it open and out came a bare skinless snake exposed. The Lord is exposing the snakes; the belief systems, ideologies, and ways we have falsely partnered with lies whether it was knowing or unknowing.

There will be a divide over our beliefs and our thinking in the Church body (the separation of wheat and tares). Ask the Lord to reveal truth to you, there is no side but God. If any of us lacks wisdom He will give it to us liberally!
“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.” Hebrews‬ ‭4:12‬ ‭AMP‬‬‬.
Be encouraged, it is through righteous judgment and repentance we are actually redeemed and reconnected to the promise. Ironically, the divide will unify.

“If you suffer for being a Christian, don’t consider it a disgrace but a privilege. Glorify God because you carry the Anointed One’s name. For the time is ripe for judgment to begin in God’s own household. And if it starts with us, what will be the fate of those who refuse to obey the gospel of God? And: If the righteous are barely saved, what will become of the wicked and godless? So then, those who suffer for following God’s will should enfold their lives into the Creator, who will never fail them, and continue to always do what is right.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭4:16-19‬ ‭TPT‬‬

5782

Happy Rosh Hashanah! It’s a new year on the Hebrew calendar coupled with a marking day of labor in this ninth month on the Gregorian calendar.

For this new beginning in 5782 we remain in the decade (80’s) of PEY – picture of the mouth. The year change is (2) the Hebrew letter BET – picture of a house, meaning dwell and house. BET as a prefix means “in”, “with”, or “on” and is an inseparable preposition always attached to a word. Strong’s Hebrew 5782 is the verb “ur” meaning to rouse oneself awake.

In this new season there will be a focus from Heaven on The Bride. The Lord will dwell in, with, and on His House (Church). We declare with our mouths the House of God will be fully awakened this new year 5782! The Lord gave me the following scripture to share from the book of Micah which means “Who is like God?”. This will be a year of great wonder as the Lord moves in and on the behalf of His beloved ones with deliverance and redemption.

“Writhe in pain and labor to bring forth, O Daughter of Zion, like a woman in childbirth; for now you shall go forth out of the city and you shall live in the open country. You shall go to Babylon; there you shall be rescued. There the Lord shall redeem you from the hand of your enemies. Now many nations are assembled against you, saying, Let her be profaned and let our eyes gaze upon Zion. But they know not the thoughts of the Lord, neither do they understand His plan, for He shall gather them as the sheaves to the threshing floor. Arise and thresh, O Daughter of Zion! For I will make your horn iron and I will make your hoofs bronze; you shall beat in pieces many peoples, and I will devote their gain to the Lord and their treasure to the Lord of all the earth. [Zech. 12:1-8; 14:14.]” ‭‭Micah‬ ‭4:10-13‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Those Whom The Lord Calls ⏰

America has sat down at the table where she dines on crumbs because she was told it was a feast. Deceived she believed the stale was fresh and called it good.

It has been declared the war is over however the war is just beginning. The Lord has long been sounding this alarm, but few have chosen to listen!

Last night the Holy Spirit woke me up at 2:32 a.m. and I heard “It’s a sad day for the Church if they don’t wake up”. The time stamp on hearing this is 2:32 a.m. and believe Joel 2:32 is the coinciding scripture.

“And whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered and saved, for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the remnant [of survivors] shall be those whom the Lord calls. [Acts 2:17-21; Rom. 10:13.]” ‭‭Joel‬ ‭2:32‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

The Lord has been repeatedly calling the Church to arise and awaken, but many are still yet sleeping.

“For this reason He says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine [as dawn] upon you and give you light.”” Ephesians‬ ‭5:14‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Prophecy with me to the American and Global Church; Awake from your slumber! Arise from your grave! Awaken and feed on the Bread of His Presence! Let the glory of the risen Lord shine upon you, may His light of Truth enter you and give you vision to see rightly. Rise up in Christ’s strength and power and allow Him to sustain you! He is your peace! He is your victory for He has overcome!

RESPONDING TO THE STIR

I heard in the Spirit ‘the Lord is stirring the waters’, and was led to John 5:4, “For an angel of God would periodically descend into the pool to stir the waters, and the first one who stepped into the pool after the waters swirled would instantly be healed.” We are familiar with this pool as ‘the pool of Bethesda’, though in Aramaic it means ‘The House of Loving Kindness’.

I asked the Lord what He was wanting to say, and I heard this is a time of quick obedience and quick response to His presence (angels always bring with them the Kingdom of Heaven and Presence of God). God is Love, and we also need to honor His loving kindness toward us.

Now in verses 5-9 we see a miracle take place with a man sitting by the pool who had been cripppled for 38 years. He complained he had no one to lower him into the waters, but Jesus simply responded to him, “Stand up! Pick up your sleeping mat and you will walk!”. What happens next is key, this is the crippled man’s response to the presence and voice of the Lord “IMMEDIATELY he stood up – he was healed! So he rolled up his mat and walked again!” vs 9.

Think on the connectivity of these words and the domino effect that transpired: “First one” ; “instant healing”; “immediately he stood”.

Your healing – whether spirit, soul, body or circumstance is connected to honoring the Lord’s presence quickly. This is not a time to ponder, figure it out, or delay! Lean not to your understanding but step into His loving, powerful presence that makes you whole!
