Press In and Press Through Till There’s Breakthrough: A Call to Fast and Pray!

Early yesterday morning as I sat in prayer and to seek the Lord, He began to speak to me. For me, one of the biggest ways that He speaks to me is when I submit myself to His leading and His voice, by putting pen to paper. Yesterday was no different.

I felt such a strong pressing of this word and of it’s imperative timely status in the spirit. A kairos moment is upon us! I very much sensed that in the days leading up to Pentecost on June 9, that Father is bringing forth from Heaven a slim window of opportunity to the Body of Christ to see promises revealed transform into promises fulfilled. This has become increasingly apparent to me in the past few weeks and the urgency of the hour at hand is increasing as well.

This is what He said:

“NOW IS THE TIME in which the windows of Heaven are open and My blessings are being released in great proportion. NOW IS THE TIME in which My angelic messengers are carrying forth into the earth promises longed for, hoped for, prayed for, and warred for. There is an opened access door into the storehouses of Heaven to deliver that which was once blocked of release.

BEWARE of a slumbering presence that seeks to hinder the release and to stall the revealing! It seeks to blind and conceal with darkness, the revelation of divine release.

I tell you truly, IF you will commit to set your gaze, focus, and sights upon My Kingdom in this hour, THEN  I will bring into you that which has been promised. I will send warring angels on your behalf to bring deliverance and divine release.

DARE TO DREAM BIG WITH ME!

DO NOT LET slumber fall to your eyelids lest you remain blinded and fail to receive that which is coming on the clouds!

STAY AWAKE AND STAY UP WITH ME!!!

Circle your promises and keep circling them until I give the signal for every demonic delay to come toppling down; yes, crumbling down!!!”

Beloved, we MUST NOT allow this moment to pass us by! We must not be like those who in Jesus’ day, dwelt among THE ANSWER to every prophecy they had held onto for hundreds of years; and yet, they were completely blinded to the reality that their Savior stood right in front of them. Even His own disciples, His closest friends, doubted His resurrected existence as He stood among them.

It is time to strip off all unbelief, all doubt, all fear and complacency, every lie, and every deception that would blind us to His Presence and His activity in the earth at this moment and in the time to come!

I must share that something interesting occurred as I received this message from the Lord. The spirit of slumber attempted to overtake me. One could say, “Well, you had four hours of sleep! Of course that would happen!” I don’t disagree. However, this time was different. I was wide awake at 4:30 to seek Jesus and it was not until He began to release this word that I sensed the onslaught of this spirit. I discerned it’s presence and I warred for the Word, though my eyelids be heavy. To my husband, it probably would’ve been the gentlest of warring that he’s seen from me; not noticeable, even.

I believe something natural in the Kingdom of Heaven took place. Because I had submitted myself to Him to seek and receive, He fought for me. Because He saw my hunger and longing, He slayed the giants opposing me. I will say, most of, if not all of the word I received was written down with my eyes closed as I rested in He, Who fights my battles. He began to expose that which sought to hinder the release of the word was indeed, the ‘slumbering presence’ in which He spoke of.

As I dwelled on this word, He reminded me of a prophetic declaration and song that came forth from my lips two days ago, “Press in, and press through till there’s breakthrough!” 

He then led me back to the Gospel accounts I studied last week from Jesus’ encounter with His disciples, Peter, James, and John in the Garden of Gethsemane, just before He was betrayed by Judas and led to His crucifixion. I was wrecked last week of His interaction with His closest friends in their last moments together. He chose them to join Him in praying, for the hour was urgent to seek God.

Mark 14:33-35 says, “An intense feeling of great horror plunged His soul into deep sorrow and agony. And He said to them, ‘My heart is overwhelmed with anguish and crushed with grief. It feels as though I’m dying. STAY HERE AND KEEP WATCH WITH ME.’ He walked a short distance away, and being overcome with grief, He threw Himself facedown on the ground. He prayed that if it were possible, He would not have to experience this hour of suffering.Verse 37-38 says, Then He came back to His three disciples and found them all sound asleep. He awakened Peter and said to him, ‘Simon, are you asleep? Do you lack the strength to stay awake with Me for EVEN JUST AN HOURKeep alert and pray that you’ll be spared from this time of testing. For your spirit is eager enough, but your humanity is feeble.'”

They couldn’t stay awake for even ONE HOUR! Why?!?!?!?!

He did this three times, going off to pray in agony as though He were dying. Three times He returned to find His closest friends asleep. I believe He placed a test before them of their devotion to Him through any trial that may come. He chose them specifically to join Him in His secret place; however this time, they joined Him in what was probably the sole dark night of the soul in His life. I believe it was perhaps similar to Elijah’s test of Elisha in 2 Kings 2. Elisha prevailed in this test and not only saw His father taken into Heaven, but also received a double portion of Elijah’s mantle because he refused to depart from his father and was determined to receive what his Father had.

However, I do not believe the disciples passed Jesus’ test. They did not refuse to depart from Him in this moment where He obviously was like they had never seen Him be. They remained where they were and allowed Him to go on in solitude to cry out to God for relief from the cup He was to drink of. What if when He said, “STAY HERE AND KEEP WATCH WITH ME”, that it was actually a command to abide with Him and an invitation to join Him in His suffering? Luke 22:43-44 say that He called for an angel of glory to come and strengthen Him.” Would that have been necessary if they had joined Him?

Verses 39-42 state, “Then He left them a second time and went to pray the same thing. Afterward, He came back to the disciples and found them sound asleep, FOR THEY COULDN’T KEEP THEIR EYES OPEN AND THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO HIM. After praying for the third time, He returned to His disciples and awoke them again, saying, ‘Do you plan on sleeping and resting indefinitely? THAT’S ENOUGH SLEEP! THE END HAS COME AND THE HOUR HAS ARRIVED for the Son of Man to be handed over to the authority of sinful men. Get up and let’s go. DON’T YOU SEE? My betrayer draws near.'”

THEY COULDN’T KEEP THEIR EYES OPEN AND THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO HIM. 

What came upon them and overtook them so greatly that they literally COULD NOT keep their eyes open and keep watch with Him and had no answer for Him as to why? I believe that it was the same slumbering spirit that Father spoke of in the message He gave me. It seeks to blind in darkness, the vision and provision of Heaven. The word for “keep watch” and “see” literally means, “to see in the spirit”. Jesus was not telling them to watch with their natural eyes, but to keep watch and guard with their spirit eyes. If it is allowed to operate, then it will block what is being released from Heaven to earth.

I believe that in this hour, Jesus is calling His Bride to band together, stand together, and contend together through a season of intense and intentional prayer, fasting, and seeking. There are promises that have been pent up and blocked from release but His promise is that if we will seek Him in these ways, that He will send His angels to remove the barriers that the release may come.

I truly believe that we are in a brief Daniel 10 moment of time. Just as Daniel set his face to pray and fast for the release of revelation of the vision, WE TOO, MUST SEIZE THIS MOMENT WITH ACTION! I believe that just as with Daniel, if we do this, we will be met by the same glowing man to dispatch angels of deliverance. He is Jesus.

Per the urging of the Lord, I am calling a 40-day fast beginning tomorrow, May 1st until Pentecost Sunday, June 9th. I strongly urge you to join me! If you have been contending for miracles, healing, salvations, promises, deliverance; NOW IS THE TIME!!! Just as He met His faithful ones who remained through the release of Holy Spirit and fire on Pentecost, I believe that He is bringing forth the same in this hour!!!

Mass of Erupting Volcanoes

 

Volcán de Fuego

Volcán de Fuego Photo: Albert Dros

A little over a week ago, I awoke to see the news of the sudden eruption of the Volcán de Fuego in Guatemala and the devastation that ensued upon the Guatemalans who resided in close proximity to the volcano. My heart is broken for those who were and are continuing to be affected by the aftermath of the initial eruption, as well as with the effects of the various other volcanic eruptions that have continued over the past months.

I began to seek the Lord over the increase of the awakening of volcanoes across the earth since the beginning of the year. He reminded me of a blog post I wrote back on January 31st, Super Blue Blood Moon. As I reviewed it and the word that the Lord released, I was brought to a deeper level of focus in my prayers, even as the Lord began to release a new word regarding the mass of erupting volcanoes.

Word of the Lord on June 4, 2018:

“The rocks are crying out in a mighty crescendo and roar. The depths of the deep are rumbling and releasing groans in praise. There is an awakening from the innermost being of earth, calling forth for the simultaneous awakening of the sons and daughters of Zion. The fire of My love is rising up, bursting forth! The cloud of My Glory is rolling in. The thick smog of My Spirit is invading all of My creation, descending upon every part. 

Do not overlook the obvious. What you are seeing is not just happenstance. What you are seeing is a call to awaken. Just as a volcano can be active but be in a state of slumber, many of My creation are living their lives just like these volcanoes. These are those whom I have called to join My Burning Ones in ushering in what I am preparing to release in the nations.

Now is not the time to lay down in your comforts, complacency, and ceasing!!!

I have come to cast FIRE upon the earth! Oh, that it were already set ablaze for Me! Oh, that you would see your purpose in the earth and choose to walk in it!”

Years ago, the Lord gave me my life verse that I was to live out the rest of my life by. Luke 12:49 in The Passion Translation says, “I have come to set the earth on fire. And how I long for every heart to be already ablaze with this fiery passion for God!” In The Message version, verses 49-51 are stated a bit differently, “I’ve come to start a fire on this earth—how I wish it were blazing right now! I’ve come to change everything, turn everything rightside up—how I long for it to be finished! Do you think I came to smooth things over and make everything nice? Not so. I’ve come to disrupt and confront!”

I went back and reflected on this passage after the Lord released this word to me and began to delve deeper into the innermost intentions of when Jesus made this statement and what I found was astonishing.

When Jesus said that He has come to set the world on “fire”, the literal Greek translation means the “fire of God”“transforming all that it touches into light and likeness with itself, bringing uninterrupted privilege of being transformed which happens by experiencing faith from Him.” The same fire is referred to in Leviticus 6:12-13 in which the fire of God is to be burning continuously at the entrance of the Tabernacle and it must never go out. First and foremost, Jesus came to bring His all-consuming, all-encompassing, never-ending fire upon the hearts of His creation. This fire was to be what sustains us and gives life to us. Our fire was never meant to grow cold, but to continually increase in power as He breathes His breath of life upon us. 

When He said, “how I wish”, it was not an empty, unfulfilling desire. He literally meant “I will. Am willing. Intend. Design.”-“to desire, wanting what is best because someone is ready AND willing to act. The Lord extending His best offer. Desiring to birth His faith in us which also empowers, manifests His Presence.” It was never a part of His original design for us to not partake in this act of being world changers and nation-shakers. It is what we were created for. This was the dream in His heart before the foundations of the world were laid. This is His “best” for us. Are we READY AND WILLING TO ACT?

Lastly, when Jesus said that He wished it were “already” burning, He was saying, “already now, after all of this waiting. Referring to what is not strictly present but already impacts the present. Point of time preceding another, implying completion.” Can you imagine…Jesus waiting on us? Yes, Jesus IS in a sense waiting on us. Waiting on us to “WAKE UP!” and realize that He wants us to partner with Him in changing the future of nations and people! That is why Jesus says in Luke 19:40“if My followers were silenced, the very stones would break forth with praises!” (TPT)

The sum of all of creation was created to worship and praise Jesus, the only One Who is worthy of praise. Of all of creation, we are God’s chosen ones and have the unique invitation to join Him in what He is doing. Creation is truly groaning, yes, breaking forth with praise; longing for the awakening of the sons and daughters of Zion to step up into their design and to step out into the world to truly turn the world rightside up! 

What you are seeing take place in the earth is so much more than just natural happenings. What is taking place in the natural is a direct reflection of what is taking place in the spiritual realm. “Do not fear what you see and what is to come,” says the Lord, “but rather rise up out of your squishy comforts and accept who you were designed to be and walk in it! The world is waiting on you, I am waiting for you to join Me in bringing My plans to completion!”

False Profits

Daily Encouragement –

Do you want to be profitable this year? Do you want to be a person of renown, praise, and glory? Do you want to be truly Mine? I want all these things for you and so much more! It may not always seem like I have your best interests at heart, but My way is always better than the way of the world. Follow Me!!!

So many have tried to walk following their own desires, fulfilling their own lusts, and doing whatever it takes to turn a profit. All these have fallen by the wayside. They have all come to nothing. They may have seemed to profit for a time, but they cannot have anything of real value if they have not followed Me. 

What I have to give is profit for all eternity, not just a century or two. I am continually calling you to follow Me into The Eternal Kingdom and profit together with all I want to give. You must follow Me or you can profit nothing! I love you My child!!! Follow Me!!!

Jeremiah 13:10-11“This evil people, who refuse to hear My words, who follow the dictates of their hearts, and walk after other gods to serve them and worship them, shall be just like this sash which is profitable for nothing. 11 For as the sash clings to the waist of a man, so I have caused the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah to cling to Me,’ says the Lord, ‘that they may become My people, for renown, for praise, and for glory; but they would not hear.’”

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!
