TRANSITIONING INTO THE NEW ERA

Transitioning

Transitioning is not a very comfortable place to be in. As in nature, when shifting from one season to another, our trees will be pruned to get rid of the unfruitful branches (the dead works of the flesh). God is making Himself heard clearly through dreams, visions and quickening in the spirit. Watch the signposts!

The Gardener might even choose to transplant us to another area of His garden. Likewise, He might call us to a different geographical location. The wind of the Spirit changes direction, temperatures rise and fall, and everything feels very unpredictable and uncertain.

As we are transitioning into the greatest outpouring of God’s glory that the world has not ever seen before, we are given the opportunity to be molded into holy vessels in order to be able to carry that glory and participate in this holy move of God. In this process our fruit will be inspected, our heart’s motives and intentions be exposed by His two-edged sword (Heb.4:12) and we will be pruned – all in order to bear more fruit from abiding in Him, in His Love and in His Word (John 15).

THE WARFARE AROUND YOU REVEALS YOUR CALL AND INHERITANCE.

Be aware that the enemy is also knowing about your new season of fulfilled promises and will do his best to DISCOURAGE you, MAKE YOU LOSE HOPE, WEAKEN you by doubt, fear and unbelief in order to prevent you from walking in your inheritance in Christ in the power of the Spirit. This, of course, is the spirit of Jezebel’s primary goal – to cause you to abort your destiny!

The battlefield is your mind (Prov.23:7). Watch the enemy’s attack points and you will know what he is after! Therefore, break out of the cycle of negative thinking and talking, which is a result of it.

Refuse to get distracted, but zoom in by refocusing on the Lord – on what God has said and IS SAYING about your life.

Sanctify yourself wholly unto the Lord – shutting off your senses from the noise pollution around you.

You have a call, a purpose and a destiny in the Kingdom of God, which only you can fulfill. With your unique creative purpose, you have a part in the bigger picture (like a puzzle piece) with certain colors, frequency and purpose in the great design of God for His ultimate glory. You want to be a faithful steward of what He has assigned to you. It is not how big your part is, but whether you fulfill it out of love for Him. We are not our own! We have been bought with a price to live a life of victory, carrying the fragrance of Christ’s victory and help others to break through into victory.

So, CONSECRATE yourself to the Lord afresh – being set apart for His pleasure and HIs glory!

GET INTERTWINED with the DNA of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit through deep communion and fellowship with Him.

ZOOM IN on:

  • What God has said and is saying – even in old prophecies, visions and dreams.
  • Tune in to your heart’s desires in the Kingdom. There is a new season upon us, and this is PREPARATION time to be perfectly tuned (like a violin) to His frequency in the spirit realm, engaging with the colors and fragrances of heaven. The old has passed away and if you do not let it go, it will be brought to nought anyway. All this preparation is to be ready for the manifestation of His miracle outpouring of glory, in which you will play an active part to bring heaven to earth as a glory carrier.
  • DEFINE YOUR CALL, PURPOSES AND DESTINY. God is CONFIRMING these through PROPHETIC SIGNPOSTS IN DREAMS, VISIONS and QUICKENING in the spirit.
  • Allow the Lord to PRUNE the unfruitful branches. Recognize it when the grace has lifted off something you have been doing. The new cannot develop fully if you are not prepared to let go of old patterns, structures, things which have become rituals without any anointing on it. Purpose to only do what you see God is doing and only say what you hear Him saying (John 5:19).

PRAYING OR SINGING MUCH IN TONGUES –

  1.  LISTENING IN and WATCHING to what God is saying in your spirit Prov.25:2).
  2.  Write down what you see and hear, setting the vision before your eyes. Without vision for the future, you will lose hope and purpose.
  3.  DECLARE God’s instructions out loud until it becomes embedded in your spirit.
  4. ACT in OBEDIENCE to everything He requires.

Now start aligning yourself to be His ambassador of Kingdom glory in the earth with joyous expectation to be part of His end-time army as a mature sons of God (Romans 8:14;17) ruling and reigning with Christ (Romans 5:17) from above (seated with Christ in heavenly places), bringing heaven to earth!

Enlarge the Place of Your Tent

I woke up with the Word, “Enlarge the place of your tent” and then the awareness that HIGH PRAISES should accompany my vision.

IS.54 “Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord.
2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;
3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.”

I sense in my spirit that this is a Word for Continue reading “Enlarge the Place of Your Tent”

Building Blocks of the Word

This morning, as I was worshiping, I asked the Lord to speak to me by the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him (Eph.1:17 -18).  I was meditating on the Word in Is.55 (1-2), especially regarding the diligence to listen for God’s Word, to incline our ears with the intention to receive a Word from Him:

“Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.”

Suddenly I saw “building blocks” coming from heaven and deposited into the hearts of His people.

The Lord was revealing to me that His living Word is like “building blocks”, ready to be released from heaven according to the degree that we are ready (with ears inclined) to hear what He is saying as we meditate on His Word.  Often His Word comes forth in “picture” form and we need to be ready to receive it in our hearts, asking the Father to release the Spirit of Truth and the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation to reveal His heart to us.

Everything we hear or see by the Spirit of Truth will line up with the plumb-line of the written Word (Logos).

As we incline our ears to hear what the Spirit is saying, He releases the living Word (Rhema) from heaven as building blocks to deposit Himself in us by revelation or by prophecy, building His kingdom in us, transforming us, perfecting us, sanctifying us, establishing us IN HIM, until we are One.
I was reminded of the words of Jesus, saying “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'” (Matt.4:4 – referring to Deut.8:3)
“And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [a][of thought and study] you give [to [b]the truth you hear] will be the measure [c][of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you—and more [besides] will be given to you who hear.” (Mark 4:24)
This Living Word is also the sword of the Spirit by which we wage warfare against the enemy of our souls.  His Word, launched against the enemy in authority of the Spirit, will demolish every lie that comes against us and will settle us in the mind of Christ to be more than conquerers in Him and by His power.
He works in progressive revelation, line upon line, precept upon precept as we seek His counsel.  As we record what He says to us regarding a specific topic or situation in our lives, we will recognize the building blocks and the plumb-line of the Word will keep us in line with His desires and purposes.
It is true that His Word is spirit and life (John 6:33, 63; Acts 5:20).  It is but “Hear, and your soul shall live.” (v.3) and that living Word, carrying the life and breath of the Holy Spirit, shall cause my soul to “delight itself in fatness”.  When it is well with our soul (being grounded in the Word of God), the enemy cannot infiltrate our minds and emotions with his lies and even our bodies will be in good health.  We will have faith and vision for our future in His purposes and destiny for our lives.
3 John 1:2  “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
Ps.1:  “Blessed is the man” ……whose “delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].

What glorious promises:  Fruitfulness in all seasons and circumstances and what we do shall prosper, because it is the outflowing of His Word in obedience (not our own ideas and plans).

As I receive His Word by faith, meditating on it, digesting it, it becomes substance on the inside of me through my acceptance by faith and it is established as truth by which I live.   As I respond back to Him in agreement with His instructions,  I WILL declare His Word in agreement with Him, calling it forth in full assurance of faith,  because it has become part of my belief system and it has become reality to me.  My soul will delight itself in abundance as Jesus, the Living Word reveals Himself to me.  Faith fills my heart as I can SEE the outcome according to His Word and my soul prospers in joy as I await the manifestation of it.

Isaiah 55:11-13

Amplified Bible (AMP)

“So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”

Thus my inner man is built on the foundation of Christ as the Rock, being the Cornerstone with the building stones of the living Word and the Lord will complete the work in me by the Spirit of Grace as I grow in the knowledge of Christ.
“And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.”  Eph.2:22
In the process we become living stones, being built into a spiritual house (the living organism of believers) to be a royal priesthood unto Him.
“You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”  1 Pet.2:5
As we are being built up in Him by the Spirit and the Word, we become His co-labourers to minister the revelation of the Christ to others.  What a glorious work of God!
“For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.”  1 Cor.3:9

So often we want to use our natural wisdom and reasoning to decide what we should do or what option to choose.  This can lead to so much hassle and confusion and hay and stubble and shall be burnt by fire.   The Lord wants us to be totally reliant on Him, simply inclining our ear to hear what the Spirit is saying, meditate on it to receive revelation from heaven and then walk out the prosperous path.

I want to encourage you to walk very dependent on the Lord, not leaning on your own understanding, but to “know” Him in all your ways and He will release the strategy that you need by His living Word through the Holy Spirit, making your path straight!

To top it off:   God promises us the sure mercies of David, which speaks of His everlasting covenant with us in the Messiah.  Covenant-mercies are all His goodness, blessings and grace that He has in store for us who walk in obedience to His Word. God’s gifts and callings are without repentance and in Christ the promises are all yea and amen.  Those are the sure mercies of David, fulfilled in Christ Jesus.

I believe that the call of the Lord to the living waters is very real in this hour.  He is calling us to a fresh hunger for the Word and thirst for the Spirit to make His Word alive in our hearts, being the bread of life to sustain us and to be the lamp for our feet and the light for our paths.

Blessings
