PROGRESSIVE REVELATION In the GLORY

I received this Word in 2011 and I feel that it is very applicable now, especially since there is much emphasis on prophetic intercession in this season. As we listen for the new heavenly sound (that God is saying “now” over the situations we pray for), we can release it as prophetic declarations in the glory and it will manifest swiftly.

RECEIVING A FRESH SOUND FROM HEAVEN in PROGRESSIVE REVELATION

I had a very powerful dream:

A new powerful sound was coming forth, seemingly from a recording. Nobody knew where it came from, but it was like the sound of many waters. It seemed familiar as though I knew it from a previous revival, but at the same time it seemed unknown. I knew it was coming from heaven and then it was as though I was enveloped in a river of this sound. I was totally overwhelmed by it and drenched in the power of this sound.

In the next scene in the dream I was in a meeting of a local church, still carrying the impact of the sound that I just experienced. A video was playing (of a previous meeting) and words were on the screen against a background of blue and green streamers, being waved around in worship – and another new sound was coming forth – never heard before!

I could make out a sentence of the song on the screen about unity. The people were abandoned to the Lord in extravagant worship.

At the same time a new video was being recorded by an unknown video-and-sound- technician (who was very knowledgeable and whom I have never seen before), while the head intercessor (whom I know) was dancing under the anointing against the background of the video. The intercessor looked much younger than in reality and the whole church was taken up in worshipping the Lord through the dance-intercession. It seemed that her youth has been renewed and also her physical and spiritual energy.

I realized that for those who are in one accord in prayer, waiting upon the Lord, worshiping together, a new sound will be released from heaven through the Holy Spirit, igniting the church with a fresh fire, exploding in song and dance. New media technicians will emerge, recording these glory explosions, taking it to the nations and the fire of the Holy Ghost will spread around the globe.

God is awakening His Bride to the power of corporate Worship-Intercession where a river of revelation is released every time when we rise above our present situations, releasing it all to the Lord in agreement with Him as our Intercessor who lives to intercede for us. This is Philippians 4:6-7 in action:
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

The Word shows us the pattern: first by prayer and supplication we bring our requests to God, releasing it to Him in faith and trust, which is expressed in thankful praise that takes us up in the glory of His Presence. Then the river of peace starts to flow and in it we are transformed from one degree of glory to the next. Here, in the corporate anointing, in one accord, we get saturated in His Presence and empowered by the sound of His voice in fresh revelation upon revelation to rise up and flow in our different gifts and anointings to do the works of the ministry.

Revelation is progressive as we position ourselves in worship-intercession to receive the fresh sound from heaven, getting drenched in it and allowing the flow of the river to bring us in a new place in Christ.

Convergence

CONVERGENCE
This is a time frame in which we need to take stock of where we are and where we are going in the Lord’s time-table – getting an eagle’s eye view of what God has been doing in our lives throughout the past year and where we stand in His plans and purposes for our lives. 
The Year 5777

We have entered the Hebraic New Year 5777, denoting extraordinary grace (Number 5) to bring the fulness (Number 7) and completeness of the 7-fold Spirit in expression.

CONVERGENCE – 

The Word “Convergence” has been ringing in my ear for a while now and I see that those who have been earnestly seeking the Lord are now going to step into a convergence where everything that has been deposited in them through the Holy Spirit is coming together in great fruitfulness and effectiveness in this season to fulfill their ultimate purpose.  

Many have felt frustrated because they have been longing for fulfillment, not knowing exactly how to to implement their gifts, talents and expertise in perfect sync with God’s plans for their lives.   But for those who have been seeking His face, walking in dependence on His leading, allowing the Holy Spirit to bring transformation in their lives (2 Cor.3:18) there is a convergence to step into their ultimate purpose.  Everything is coming together now in a convergence with heaven’s plans and our readiness, having been molded in the Potter’s hand and having been forged in the fire of affliction to be made ready for use in His hands.  The mature sons and daughters of God are arising to step into their predestined role, clothed in love and and the armor of light, wearing the apron of humilty.

All that God has deposited in us by the Spirit in the form of gifts, talents, skills, impartation, endowments, wisdom, understanding and revelation are at a convergence point, coming together in fulness of expression of His glory for such a time as this for His glory demonstration and at the same time fitly joined together with others in the body who have been prepared likewise. It is like different streams coming together forming one great river of glory in the unity of faith.  Great exploits will be done in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 4:15King James Version (KJV)

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

FRESH ALIGNMENTS
I sense that the LIGHT WILL COME ON in a suddenly for many who have been in the “Pushing” stage of birthing their vision and there will be CLARITY of PURPOSE and fresh ALIGNMENT with others in the body who are like-minded to break through into fulness of our promises.New ministry teams are going to be divinely “put together” by the Holy Spirit in unexpected suddenlies.

Many have been in pressing in for greater depths and heights in the spirit and I sense that we have come to a pivotal point with the Jewish celebration of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. 

We as Christians are celebrating the glorious victory of Calvary today, knowing we have a High Priest according to the order of Melchizedeck who lives to intercede for us (Heb.7:17,25) having paid for our sins once and for all.

We are worshiping the Lord anew for His immense love for us in His sacrifice.  In this past year the Lord has very intensely schooled me in His love walk (still learning) and I know that it is the ONE thing we will be tested on, namely, “Did you learn to love?” (Bob Jones).

Agape love is the principal empowerment for the extrordinary miracles that we are going to walk in.

1 Thess. 3:12-13  “And may the Lord cause you to increase and excel and overflow in love for one another, and for all people, just as we also do for you; so that He may strengthen and establish your hearts without blame in holiness in the sight of our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints (God’s people).”

BREAKTHROUGH IS IN THE AIR

As I am writing this I suddenly had a quickening in my spirit, sensing Breakthrough into new avenues, new line-ups and new connections coming forth.  It is happening NOW and as we can see it and align with it in the spirit realm, it will manifest in the natural.

This “convergence” is bringing new line-ups by the Spirit with the like-minded being merged together for God’s specific purposes to be accomplished – being fitly connected to our “tribe” to accomplish God’s purposes in the earth, having no agenda of our own, walking in humility and love, shining His glory light into the world.

Although we are not under the law anymore, God does speak very prominently during His appointed feast times and we should incline our ears for wisdom and understanding during this important time frame – making adjustments and coming into a repositioning for this new year – especially listening for His instructions and watching where He is aligning us with others in the body who have the same vision and similar giftings.

NEW MEASURES OF THE  ANOINTING

New measures of the anointing are about to be demonstrated by the Holy Spirit through those who have been faithfully pursueing the Lord,  resulting in wondrous miracles.

PARADIGM SHIFTS

In order to flow with these “out of the box” demonstrations of God’s power we need to step out of our old limited mindset. It is a walk in the wisdom of total yieldedness (James 3:17) to the Holy Spirit, not questioning His ways, wanting to rely on the old way of doing things but ready to follow His leading in absolute obedience.

THE YEAR OF THE SWORD

Much has already been written on this, but I understand that, as we get saturated with the Word, abiding in the living power of it (John 15:7), as we abide in Christ, the power to release the “impossible” by the unction of the Holy Ghost will come into effect for everyone who believes. 

In 2 Sam.23:9-10 we read of one of David’s mighty men, Eleazar:

“He arose, and smote the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand clave unto the sword: and the Lord wrought a great victory that day; and the people returned after him only to spoil.”

When the Word of God is absorbed into our spirt, and we become one with that Word by faith (the sword clinging to our hand), abiding in Him and abiding in His Word, we can ask anything and it shall be given to us. (John 15:7).  As we speak out that Word, it becomes the Sword of the Spirit in our mouth (Eph.6:17), angels are put in action to perform God’s Word (Ps. 103:20) and the victory is secured, even with the spoils taken.  That is how powerful God’s Word is!  All we need to do is to incline our ear to hear what the Spirit is saying, come into agreement with it and release it into the airways!  Hallelujah!


I am praying that each of us (those reading this) be fine-tuned and connected to the Power Source to walk in the works which He has preordained for us.

Break Through, Break Out, Break Free

This is a season in which the Lord is doing a special work in His Bride.
26 So that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, 27 That He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things [that she might be holy and faultless].
Eph.5:26-27 Amp.

I heard the Lord say, “Break through!  Break out! And Break free!”

Confinements in our souls cause us to be stuck so that we cannot be what God has predestined us to be!  If you can “see” beyond your walls, you can have your breakthrough! Continue reading “Break Through, Break Out, Break Free”

“Seer” Anointing -3

The “Seer” Anointing – 3

TYPES OF VISIONS

As we progress, we will receive more KEYS to see in the spirit realm:

The more I am leaning into to Spirit, desiring intimacy with the Lord, focusing on the Lord Jesus, the more I will see.

In this place I keep my natural eyes guarded, not to look to the world and the “entertainments” of the world. Where the eyes go, the mind follows. Therefore wehave to keep our hearts pure (uncontaminated or clouded with worries or concerns) so that our spiritual eyes can receive the light of understanding, constantly “looking for His face”, minding the things of the Spirit, not of the flesh.

Visions frequently come when we are in deep worship in the Spirit. (Rev.1: “I was in the Spirit of the Lord’s day”).

There are different types of visions, but today we will discuss:
INNER VISION.

Inner Vision comes when we are wide awake with open or closed eyes, but seeing in the spiritual realm with our spiritual eyes.

The Greek word “horama” (Strong’s # 3705 – cognate – a vision (spiritual seeing), focusing on the impact it has on the one beholding the vision (spiritual seeing).

This type of vision occurs most often, but in order to obtain the greatest benefit from it, we need to exercise faith and ask for the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation to interpret the vision and then apply it appropriately.

It comes from relationship in intimacy of worship and at the same time it brings a revelation of the knowledge of the Lord and of His heart. It is often accompanied by the Holy Spirit bringing remembrance of a certain Scripture and that is why it is important to get saturated in the Word.

I will share a practical example with you for greater understanding and put explanatory notes in brackets.

I want to encourage you to use your imagination and “picture” (envision) the experience with me:

It had been raining earlier on, but when I went for a walk along the ocean and then along a lagoon, the mist was so thick that I couldn’t see further than a hundred yards around me. There was an air of wonder in the mood of this late afternoon, and I was worshiping the Lord for His awesome creative power (not asking for , anything, or having any consciousness other than Him, just worshiping Him). Everything was misty and the picture was painted in monochrome tones with the sound of the waves tumbling onto the shore. I started singing some “new” songs to the Lord (spontaneous impromptu lyrics that came up in my spirit), worshiping Him with all my heart, delighting myself in the beauty of His creation. Seagulls were drifting along with the outgoing tide and others were gathered in groups along the side of the lagoon, occasionally rising up and flying to the other side as I drew near.

Seagulls were drifting along with the outgoing tide and others were gathered in groups along the side of the lagoon, occasionally rising up and flying to the other side as I drew near.  The fog was creeping in closer and closer and in the last light of the day a barely perceptible faint pink hue was spreading over the scene.  It was too beautiful for words and I was totally overwhelmed by the Spirit as I was in deep worship, extolling the Lord.  Darkness was setting in with visibility minimizing and street lights came on, shining dimly in the fog.  The Scripture came to my mind “Darkness was upon the face of the deep and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters”.  I was pondering on this when suddenly I had a vision of the Lord Jesus (with open eyes, but seeing with my spiritual eyes into the spirit realm) wearing a long white flowing robe, coming out of the mist and walking towards me in a kind of floating motion.  I was totally overcome by His presence, being enveloped in His love and light for a while in spite of the darkness that started to fall around me in the natural.  I was thinking of the contrast between His light and the darkness setting in around me. Then the Lord reminded me of Stephan, seeing the heavens opened over him and looking into the glory of the Lord, while he was being stoned.  The Lord conveyed to me (I use the word “convey” because in visionary experiences the Lord usually doesn’t commune with words, but there is an understanding and a “knowing” of what He is “saying” in the spirit-to Spirit communication) that, when darkness comes over the earth and even when persecution comes (and it will come according to the Scriptures), there will be no fear.  We should keep looking into the glory and shining forth His glory light (Is.60:1), being prepared to bear bold witness of Him in spite of it.  I knew that this was a message for the church to come up in higher places in the glory so that His glory light can shine so brightly over us that “kings will come to the brightness of your rising” to enquire about Him.  I stood there worshiping the Lord for a long time. 

This type of vision the “lowest” kind of vision, but the greatest in revelatory content and it requires a greater measure of faith.

This falls in the category of a message-type vision.

In this vision there was also the symbolical element that nature played in the revelation of the Lord’s message to me.  (Jesus always taught in parables). 

Mat 13:34 “ All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them” 

The experience left me impacted with the awesome power of His Presence and the deep knowing that His light dispels all darkness. I was meditating on it for the rest of the evening, also recording it in my journal and it was imprinted in my spirit man as a strengthening for the perilous times ahead.  How glorious is our Lord!
