MARCHING ORDERS

MARCHING ORDERS

Yesterday, August 8th, 2016 I was very aware of the double 8th’s:
8th day of the 8th month in the year 2016 (16=8×2).

The number eight signifies new beginnings and the doubles in the date caused an excitement in my spirit, picking up a doubling in the Jubilee blessings, double new doors being opened (Is.45) and a doubling in opportunities for those who will walk through these double doors in this timing.

As I was prayerfully watching and listening for the Holy Spirit to speak, I sensed that a definite shift has occurred.

FORWARD MARCH through DOUBLE OPEN DOORS

Unknown

Those who have been waiting on the Lord in intimate worship, will now experience a sudden move into forward gear – a new gear that has been oiled for the new season.

I heard the words, “Forward march!”

Marching implies being in sync with those who are fitly joined together with you by the Holy Spirit in perfect unity of purpose:

Ephesians 4: 15-16 King 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.”

I heard, “There is a girding up”, girded with the girdle of Truth and new strength for the uncharted pathways.

Double new doors are opening with all the provision needed for the new assignments God has for you, coupled with a double portion of the anointing for those who will tap into it in worship.

Step through in the confidence that the Lord’s dealings in you have broken you through into a new season of fruitfulness, which will be sweet, fresh and fragrant, resulting in an empowerment of others who will feast on the revelation of God’s glory through you.

NEW SHOES

I see new shoes being provided to walk on new pathways – never been walked before. Much is in store for the sons of God who will venture on these new pathways, following the leading of the Holy Spirit by faith (Rom.8:14), not allowing human reasoning to interfere – simply obedient to His voice. It will be almost like a treasure hunt – following the cues and the still, small voice of the Spirit in simple trust, never doubting, but watchfully paying attention to His sign posts as He goes before them, leading them into the fulness of their destiny.

“….the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits”. (Dan.11:32)

THE OIL OF JOY

I have the sense of a fresh smell of the fragrance of the oil of joy, and a sense of leaping and shouting! God is releasing this oil of joy with an excitement in the air, an expectancy to see God’s glory on display in new ways! Those who delight themselves in the Lord, rejoicing in His goodness and mercy, will see their heart’s desires fulfilled in unexpected ways. (Prov.37:4)

The Spirit of Truth will lead you and guide you in all truth, strengthen you with joy and faith to follow where He leads through these new double doors of opportunity, even though it not be on familiar roadways. Love will compel you as you possess new territory for the King’s glory.

I want to encourage you to step out on the prompting of the Lord, not looking at the negative circumstances around you, but fixing your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith! (Heb.12: 1-3). There is a cloud of witnesses cheering you on!
Do what you are called to do – nothing more, nothing less and nothing else – in unity with those around you for God’s glory alone!

Blessings,

Increase your Expectancy for the Double Portion

IMG_4921In a time of corporate worship, I sensed the Spirit saying, “Increase your expectancy for Me to do far above what you can pray or think” – whatever your circumstances may be.

1 Corinthians 2:9 (NKJV)

 “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,

Nor have entered into the heart of man

The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

 We need to take our eyes off the difficulty of the circumstances or the size of the mountain before us, letting go of negative expectancy and fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. He will give us the victory.

In this meeting a lady, who had a big struggle with a family situation, received total freedom and great joy as she let go of the burden, putting her trust and expectancy in Jesus to work it out.

Hebrews 12:1-2 (NKJV)

The Race of Faith

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

 The great cloud of witnesses shows us that there are many who have come through life’s difficulties victoriously, cheering us on to persevere by faith!  The instruction is to throw off the worries and cares (burdens) and the sin (of unbelief and doubt), looking unto Jesus who will take us through.  He showed us the way of perseverance while going through the most horrific events thinkable, because His eyes were on the end-result – the joy which He kept before Him in seeing His Bride by faith and receiving His place as the Victorious One at the right hand of the throne of God.

So, instead of expecting the negative, pray for God’s glory to invade your situations, praising Him for His favor, grace and lovingkindness to work things out for His glory – then raise your expectancy for miracles!

Then twice the Lord gave me the following Word, which is repeated twice in this passage).

“Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion,

and instead of disgrace (confusion) you will rejoice in your inheritance (portion)

And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.” – Isaiah 61:7

A double portion is coming to those who will keep trusting the Lord, their eyes fixed on Him to do the seemingly impossible.

Do not let the difficulty of your situation limit your expectancy, but fix your eyes on the Victorious One, remembering that all things are possible for those who believe (Mark 9:23).   Hallelujah!

Therefore, whatever your current challenge, struggle or mountain may be, let go of your limited natural sight and understanding.  Look away from the problem and look unto the amazing miracle power and might of our Lord.  Only believe with great expectancy for your double portion inheritance and let the sound of His Word recalibrate your mindset and you declare the victory with rejoicing!   Glory to God!

Blessings
