Ireland: Robes and Scrolls

Yesterday morning I saw a vision of the nation of Ireland from an aerial view. Suddenly, a mighty stirring took place and a great wind began to roar. Out of the sea arose a fierce dragon. It began to the south and though storms would normally continue their course out into the deep sea, this beast set its course northwest. When its eyes caught sight of Ireland, it took a hard right and barreled towards the west coast of Ireland, bent on devouring much within its fierce jaws; for its appetite was yet quenched. In an unexpected, unheard of occurrence and approach, the dragon advanced and was bent on satisfying its hunger. With teeth bared, snarling as it approached its target, suddenly a mighty hand arose up from the depths of the sea and stopped the dragon dead in its tracks; as it smashed into the hand like a brick wall. As it collided with the undaunted and powerful hand of opposition, it smashed and broke into scattered pieces in the sea. The grave threat to the Heart of Ireland was stifled and destroyed.

I heard the Lord say, “The enemy has set his sights on you, Ireland; and has set out to sift you like wheat. He has determined to devour you and swallow you up in your sin. Behold, the seas are stirring and rumbling as the clouds gather. What is looked at as an abnormality and a phenomenon will arise from the Celtic Sea and thunder towards the Heart of Ireland, for a body cannot survive without a beating heart. Yes, the beast hungers for your heart, Ireland! No amount of preparation could prepare you enough to save you from the teeth of the devourer. Truly, I declare, the only thing that can save you is My victorious right hand. NOW is the time to take heed the words of My prophets and to turn your face to Me and away from your wicked ways! I have established a remnant of righteousness within your walls to contend to and seek My hand on your behalf. They are the ones of power and of steadfastness. BUT, it is up to you, the course of your days to come. IF you will arise out of your I-land ways, THEN I will step in like a mighty warrior and make you MY-land again. I will stop fear and death in its tracks and restore you to your rightful place. I will return to you in ways unprecedented and in greater proportions than you have never seen before. Oh, do not take this warning offhandedly; but take it to heart and act as My Spirit directs.”

Then I saw from Heaven, a pair of massive hands holding a glimmering golden sword, point it downward and with great force, strike the heart of Ireland. As the sword struck the soil, it pierced to the core and great power surged from the sword of Heaven and a great wave swept across the land in a golden glow of outpouring and glory. The sound of the waves roared and on the crest of the waves rode the One Who is in charge the Angel Armies. He was clothed in the Glory of God, bearing a sword poised to the skies, Faithful and True was written upon Him, with Fire blazing in His eyes and a voice that rumbled throughout the realm of the spirit louder than a thousand thunders combined; causing the earth to quake and bow down before Him.

Following Him were a band of angels dispatched to carry out Kingdom assignments that had been laid down. In their hands, they held small, simple boxes. When they arrived at homes around the nation, they dropped off boxes on the doorsteps of those who had received the Call of God in times past; and for various reasons, chose to lay them down and take up the cloaks of ‘SELF’ — to appease one’s fleshly desires and hunger. The angels set the boxes down and would knock on the door, then fly off. As people answered their doors, they were wearing sleeping robes and written on them in bold black letters were words of the things they exchanged their call for — ‘bitterness’, ‘hatred’, ‘lust’, ‘indulgence’, ‘fear’, ‘unforgiveness’, ‘abortion’, ‘witchcraft’, ‘rebellion’, ‘unworthy’, ‘denial’. Upon each one’s eyes were sleeping masks so they couldn’t even see, they only heard.

As they began to feel around, many felt the boxes on the ground and picked them up. Some were so curious as to what was in the boxes that they took off the blinders and were shocked to find the very thing they had said “no” to in their hands again. Just then, the enemy crept in to try and shame many into throwing down their second chance at sonship and their destiny.

I could hear the voice of the Father crying out, “DON’T PUT DOWN WHAT I HAVE GIVEN YOU AGAIN! DON’T GIVE IN! DON’T GIVE UP YOUR GIFT! DON’T PUT YOUR SLUMBERING BACK ON! RIP OFF THAT CLOAK OF CONDEMNATION AND OPEN YOUR BOX OF DESTINY! TEAR OFF THE CLOAK THAT WAS NEVER MEANT FOR YOU! LOOK IN YOUR BOX AND SEE THE ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT I DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU! SEE THE SCROLL THAT I DREAMED UP FOR YOUR LIFE! TAKE HOLD OF IT AND SAY, ‘YES!’ TO ME! PUT ON YOUR ROBE AND JOIN ME! DON’T GO BACK TO BEING BLIND AND ASLEEP, BUT, AWAKEN!!! IT’S TIME! LEAVE YOUR COMFORTS IN THE ‘SAFETY’ OF YOUR ‘HOME’, AND PARTNER WITH ME TO SET THE NATIONS ABLAZE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!”

Luke 12:37-38 (TPT)
“What great joy is ahead for the awakened ones who are waiting for the Master’s return! He Himself will become their servant and wait on them at his table as He passes by. 38 He may appear at midnight or even later, but what great joy for the awakened ones whenever He comes!”

Romans 13:11 (AMP)
“Do this, knowing that this is a critical time. It is already the hour for you to awaken from your sleep [of spiritual complacency]; for our salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed [in Christ].”

Romans 13:12-14 (TPT)
“Night’s darkness is dissolving away as a new day of destiny dawns. So we must once and for all strip away what is done in the shadows of darkness, removing it like filthy clothes. And once and for all we clothe ourselves with the radiance of light as our weapon. 13 We must live honorably, surrounded by the light of this new day, not in the darkness of drunkenness and debauchery, not in promiscuity and sensuality, not being argumentative or jealous of others. 14 Instead fully immerse yourselves into the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, and don’t waste even a moment’s thought on your former identity to awaken its selfish desires.”

Job 8:5-7 (AMP)
“If you would [diligently] seek God and implore the compassion and favor of the Almighty, then, if you are pure and upright, surely now He will awaken for you and restore your righteous place. Though your beginning was insignificant, yet your end will greatly increase.”

Beloved, we must pray for the nation of Ireland. I believe in my spirit that there will be a storm that will arise out of the sea set to bring destruction and harm to the western coast of Ireland. This storm will be no joke and we must pray that the enemy’s plan be halted and destroyed in the name of Jesus! I believe that God is giving a chance to turn. For the Global Body of Christ to turn to Him in intercession on behalf of Ireland, and the nation of Ireland to turn to Him and claim their rightful inheritance. There is rich revival history there and the nations eternally benefited from the outpouring of Holy Spirit that erupted there.

This word is a call to prayer for the nation of Ireland; and it is also a trumpet call for the awakening of many in the Global Body of Christ. This word is not exclusive to Ireland; but it is a second chance of the Lord for many who turned down the Lord in a season that was purposed to be a “YES” season. It is time to remove the blinders and scales to the Call of God, times and seasons, and the purpose for which you were created! Put off all of the heaviness and shame that is not of the Lord and rise up to the destiny set apart for you! Choose to deny the enemy of his stake at your destiny and choose to lay down every weight which so easily entangles; choose to lay everything down for the sake of the world!

Your active and participating presence in the Kingdom of God is essential to carrying out the Great Commission to see all of the nations come to know Jesus and Global Revival sweep across the furthest reaches of the earth.

Shepherding in Truth

Daily Encouragement –

Have you given Me your whole heart? Are you pretending or trying to fool someone? I know the Truth and reality in your heart. You can never fool Me. I will not let you try to fool yourself forever either. 

I am merciful and ready to heal any backsliding and forgive all sin. Bring your darkness to the light, acknowledge your sin, and turn from it. Whether blatant sin or not obeying fully what you have been told to do, bring all these things to Me. I will forgive, heal, and set you free from all the guilt and condemnation. 

I am waiting for you to come to Me in Truth so I can shepherd you with My heart. I will give knowledge and understanding of Me, My heart, and My ways as you fully come to Me!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 3:10, 12-13, 15 Judah has not turned to Me with her whole heart, but in pretense,” says the Lord. 
Return, backsliding Israel,’ says the Lord; ‘I will not cause My anger to fall on you. For I am merciful,’ says the Lord; ‘I will not remain angry forever. Only acknowledge your iniquity, That you have transgressed against the Lord your God,
…And you have not obeyed My voice,’ says the Lord.
[Return] And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding

As we begin learning about Worship and Sacrifice, we must first ask ourselves,

What is Worship?  

What is Sacrifice?

If we do not have a proper understanding of these things, then as we discuss them, we will never come to a true understanding.  My prayer is that as we investigate the scriptures, that we will understand even more the meaning of these and how we can apply them to our lives.

Worship – Honoring and lifting high another as higher than yourself out of a heart of love in response to God’s word, act, or nature.

Sacrifice – Giving up completely something that is greatly important to you for the benefit of another because you love them.

Here, I am talking specifically of the worshiping God, but we worship and lift high so many things that are undeserving.  Food, sleep, money, fashion, entertainment, sports, people, can all be worshiped in spite of not being worth it.  In this one statement, you may be feeling judged and your toes may feel stepped on, but this is the reality of the matter in my life as well as the lives of so many others.

We have a struggle in the morning when our alarms go off whether we will rise and spend time with the Lord worshiping Him or worship the god of sleep that is so seductive especially when it comes time to make the decision.  I could go on and on about each one of these, but every time we choose these things over obedience to God and love for Him, we are worshiping them and lifting them high as the important things in our lives.

Worship

In 2 Chronicles 21, we come to learn that we worship God when we accept His word and are obedient without doubting or questioning what He says.  Jehosophat had no direct command of God to put His worshipers on the front lines.  They did it out of an act of obedience and thus worshiped God by being obedient and trusting in the word of God.

In Genesis 22, Abraham is called to sacrifice his son that God had just revealed was the son of promise.  Abraham trusted God in such a way that as they went to the mountain in Vs. 5 Abraham says we go to worship.  Abraham’s heart of sacrifice is a true act of worship to God.  He was willing to give whatever God asked in obedience out of his great love for Him.

In John 4,

What Jesus mean to worship God in Spirit and truth?

  • God wants a constant communion with you in the day to day.  He does not want you to worship Him in a church or at your house only, but in the Spirit everywhere you go in every situation that you are in.
  • God wants you to be honest with Him.  You cannot fool God.  He sees the thoughts and intentions of your heart.  If you are giving Him something small and seemingly mediocre out of a good heart, it is greater worship than giving the very most you have out of a wrong heart. (1 Cor 13:3)

In Malachi 1, God desires our very best.  If we bring God half-hearted worship out of duty, these things are not pure and holy and actually dishonor and disrespect God.  He would rather no one worship than to have duty-filled worship out of grudging hearts.  He wants pure and holy worship that is a true witness to who He is.  This only comes when we are giving God our best out of a willing and loving heart.

In 2 Samuel 24, David reveals that God is blessed by our sacrifice more than he is blessed by our excess.  We see this concept over and over throughout the Bible that when we give God something valuable to us, that is true worship.  Those giving because they have extra does not impress God.  Jesus states this in a different way when talking of the widow in Mark 12:41-44. God desires our pure and holy sacrifice so He can bless us with better than our very best!!!

Finally, in Luke 7, a “sinner” probably a prostitute comes in to the middle of the pastors and elders of their day.  She humbles herself completely to the judgmental and critical thoughts and stares and worships Jesus.  This “sinner”  sacrificed more and gave more in worship than anyone else around.  Because of her sacrifice and true heart of worship, her sins are forgiven, and she is saved.  She was forgiven much and so loved much.  The fact that she loved much caused her to sacrifice her most valuable possession and her pride as an act of worship to Jesus.

Does you love cause you to sacrifice your pride and valuables in worship to the Lord? 

Nothing I have spoken is out of judgment or condemnation, but Holy Spirit has even convicted me in studying these things.  Our love for God will always lead us to a true worship which is displayed in what we are willing to sacrifice for our True Love.

Ask Holy Spirit these questions and be obedient in what He is speaking:

Are you giving your very best to God?  This is true worship.

What is God calling you to sacrifice to love Him and worship Him in a deeper way?

worship1

May you be blessed with knowing more of the Love of God than ever before, and may you receive the fullness of the blessing that comes through true worship and sacrifice.
