Victorious in Light

This morning while in the secret place, I had been reading the last few chapters of Mark’s account of Jesus’ path to the cross, His resurrection, His encounters with believers and His friends after His resurrection, and of His commission to His apostles to go into all the earth, preach the Good News and make disciples.

I reflected upon what Jesus did during those specific last days two-thousand years ago. He suffered continuous betrayal, died a cruel sinner’s death upon the cross, though He be sinless. He shattered the gates of hell and took back the keys of death and the grave, and He rose to life victoriously. He commissioned His apostles and us to go to every nation, tribe, and tongue and declare that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand; and He ascended to sit upon His heavenly throne and reign victoriously forever. He went to prepare a place for us.

As I sat overwhelmed with a fresh revelation of this reality leading up to Resurrection Day tomorrow, He began to speak to me about what He is doing now and what He is going to do. I heard Him say:

“Glory and splendor are rising unto My name. Death has been defeated and I am victorious in light!!! You will look and see My glory in ways unheard of! So much joy is coming in a mighty increase, yes, a mighty crescendo throughout eternity.

The nations will gaze upon Me and be filled with new life!

My glory is My goodness; and I restore what was broken and severed. You have yet to know what I am going to do! For what is coming is going to be greater than what has been!

For My name’s sake, I am bringing with Me a new light and a new life in this present darkness. Where the sun and moon will be darkened, I will bring a flash of light that will be a sign to you of My promise. A sign of release to My gift of restoration will you see.

I am taking what was broken and left in destitution and I am rebuilding a new creation, far better than what was. The nations will gaze upon what I masterfully create and will be amazed and in awe and wonder!

You will know the age of rejoicing has come by these signs. Come with your joy offerings and your sacrifices of love and watch what I do! I make all things better than before! I make all things new!”

Isaiah 60:1-4 (TPT)
“Rise up in splendor and be radiant, for your light has dawned, and Yahweh’s glory now streams from you! Look carefully! Darkness blankets the earth, and thick gloom covers the nations, but Yahweh arises upon you and the brightness of His glory appears over you! Nations will be attracted to your radiant light and kings to the sunrise-glory of your new day. Lift up your eyes higher! Look all around you and believe, for your sons are returning from far away and your daughters are being tenderly carried home. Watch as they all gather together, eager to come back to you!”

V. 10, 14 (TPT)
“Foreigners will rebuild your walls and their kings will serve you. Even though I punished you in My anger, I will restore you in My gracious favor, and show you My tender compassion.”
“The descendants of your oppressors will come bowing low before you, and all who hated you will bow down at your feet. They will call you The Beautiful City of Yahweh, Glorious Zion of the Holy One of Israel.”

V. 15-16 (TPT)
“Although once you were rejected and despised, undesirable for anyone to pass through you, I will make you majestic forever, a source of joy for every generation. You will guzzle the milk of nations and suckle at the breast of kings. You will know Me intimately that I am Yahweh, your Savior, for I am the Mighty Hero who rules over Jacob’s tribes, your Kinsman-Redeemer!”

V. 19-22 (TPT)
“The sun will no longer be needed to brighten the day, nor the moon to shine at night, for Yahweh will be your unfailing light; your God will be your glory! There will be no more sunsets or new moons, for Yahweh will be your everlasting light and your days of sadness will be over. All your people will be righteous and will permanently possess the land. I planted them there as a tender sapling, the work of My own hands to display My glory. I will multiply the least of you into a thousand and the weakest one into a mighty nation. I am Yahweh, and when the right time comes, I will accomplish it swiftly!”

Bold Faith Brings Blessings!!!

This past week was a whirlwind.   Jeremiah and I set off for England last Monday for his sister, Tiffany’s wedding that was on Saturday.   God had already laid out the schedule of what the week would look like prior to us going.  We knew that we would be traveling to England, and then on the following Tuesday, I would head home alone while Jeremiah would journey on to Spain to join his father in exploratory missions there and then come home at the start of August.  I must say that it is strange not having him by my side, being this is the first time we have been apart since we got married almost 1 year ago…or shall I say since our relationship began.  Seeing as we started our courtship the day he left for missions in England and I did not see him for almost 3 months, and afterward was able to be with him some portion of time every day for 10 months until we married.  Almost 2 years of being with my Husband every day if not all day.  I suppose some would say I’m a little spoiled.  However, I look at it as a blessing of the Lord.

Our time in England was full of joy, emotions, excitement, ministry and God appointments. We were able to share with and encourage many different people on the Harpenden YWAM base of the adventures God took us on this past year, as well as praying for a new friend, James.  Despite wedding preparations and other things that were taking place, God made it refreshing.  The wedding of Tiffany and Bryson, our new brother, was absolutely beautiful and so full of Holy Spirit, even from the rehearsals.

We were blessed to have our good friend, Carl, from Newcastle drive down and join us at the wedding and then take us up to Newcastle to see old friends.  On the way to Newcastle, we stopped by Gateway Christian Centre in Birmingham to see our 17 year old close friend, Stephen, who was missioning there.  Pastor Jon Colyer had come twice in the past to the church we attended back home and brought a revival atmosphere to the church.  It was great to encourage and pray for Stephen and get to see what God is doing in the church there!

That evening we attended St. Luke’s, the church we had partnered with last time in Newcastle. True to Pastor Robert’s nature, he asked us to come up impromptu to share about our travels since our last time there.  I had felt the Lord prompting me to pray for Robert’s ears and He spoke to me that Jesus did not not turn away anyone that came to Him, but healed them all; so with that I was to do an invitation for healing.  Jeremiah shared about our travels and then I shared about the healing that took place in India (found in our blogs, Believing Is Seeing!!! and Faith That Brings Healing.)  I shared God’s word with Robert and the people, prayed for his ears and gave the invitation.  About 10 people came forward for healing and we prayed for them.  Each one was receiving their healing and one man, Lenny, said that he felt a healing balm running through his body as I prayed for him for strength in his body as he got older.

In Acts 11:24, Barnabas is referred to as a “good man, full of the Holy Spirit and strong in faith.”  The Amplified Bible says he was “full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit”.  The Message says that he was “enthusiastic and confident in the Holy Spirit’s ways.  The community grew large and strong in the Master.”  How confident are you in Holy Spirit?  Are you allowing Holy Spirit to lead and guide you fully?  Had I not shared what I felt Him speaking and acted in bold faith, the people at St. Luke’s would not have received their healing that night.  Let this be an encouragement to you to always speak and act boldly what God is leading you to do, even if it seems crazy.  God blesses us for our obedience and He also blesses others through us!!!  May we always be known by Father as those who are full of Holy Spirit, bold in faith, and confident in His ways!!!
