From Smoke Screens to Birthing Things

While in an intense season of prayer and fasting in this last year, the Lord brought me into a time of great revelation-knowledge day in and day out. It was in that time that He spoke the following word to me and He has now released me to share it. This is what I heard Him say:

“The labor has been long and hard. The coming birth is long OVERDUE! The baby has grown so large that it will take one hard push to be cast forth. BEAR DOWN! The enemy has seen the size of the promise and has tried to snuff out its life every step of the way…Clouds of heaviness, complacency in spirit, fear rumbling as he speaks death.

My Holy Spirit will be your midwife to guide you through the final pushes. YOU ARE ON THE CUSP OF DELIVERY! The Ring of Fire has been all around you, the intense waves of burning and opposition coming against you. But I declare to you: TRANSITION IS HERE AND YOUR BULGING WATERS ARE BURSTING, THAT YOU MAY GIVE YOUR FINAL PUSHES.

As you enter into the final phase, DO NOT GIVE UP, DO NOT LOSE HEART OR YOUR FOCUS FOR THE OVERFLOW IS JUST ON THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR EFFORTS FOR MY KINGDOM! 

Yes, give your final pushes and BE AMAZED at how I EKBALLO My Revival, My Outpouring, My Promise!

Do you hear it?! Do you hear the sound of My babe coming forth?! Do you hear the roar from the lungs of a nation receiving the Light of Life? Everything I do is great! EVERYTHING I FORM AND FASHION TOGETHER IS BIGGER THAN YOU THINK!

BEHOLD! I have set up and established a treasure trove of fruit from the promises I implanted in your heart. Now they have taken root, grown, developed, and are manifested before your very eyes! Reach forth and take hold of your special treasure, My Beloved!”


As we begin our transition into the Hebraic New Year, 5780 at the end of September, I believe that we are entering into a season of birthing the promises of God that have long been cultivated and become deep-seeded in the hearts of His Bride. I believe the Lord is saying in this crucial transition hour:

“The past seasons and years even, for many it seemed as if the promise would never come to fruition. Some even began to doubt the word spoken to them and if they had heard correctly or if they had missed a step along the way. The witchcraft and bombardment of the enemy of your souls had caused all focus to be lost in the thick cloud of the fallout. The heavy warfare and opposition had left many feeling disoriented and caused the focus of many to become askew and out of focus, lacking clarity. This co-ordinated attack was intended to stall the delivery and to allow for time to suffocate the promise in the middle of the birthing.

I say to you…It is time to SHAKE OFF THE DUST of the past season and to rise up and discern the hour that quickly encroaches!

Do you not perceive it? Do you not feel it? The rumbling and groaning arising even now for the fulfillment of the seeds of promise?

DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BECOME LOST in the shroud of foreboding of the unknown that the enemy is attempting to use as a smoke screen to distract you from the seedbed of Revival sprouting up RIGHT NOW before you! 

DO NOT FORGET WHAT I PUT IN YOU AND SPOKE TO YOU! IT WILL NOT BE LONG NOW UNTIL YOU BIRTH THE VERY THING IN WHICH I IMPLANTED IN YOU!

You thought it was far off or that the promise had died in the darkness of the womb; but I have been weaving things together which you have not seen nor perceived! Where it seemed as if all was lost, I was there creating something beautiful and intricate from nothing. My hands were there fashioning a thing too beautiful for words and NOW My Spirit has come to breathe the Breath of Life into the masterpiece I have designed.

You didn’t even know you were still pregnant with a living thing, and SUDDENLY IT MAKES ITS APPEARANCE!

I say to you…FIX YOUR GAZE UPON MY FACE! FIX YOUR GAZE UPON MY EYES OF LOVE AND MIMIC MY BREATHS AS I GUIDE YOU AND LEAD YOU THROUGH THE BIRTHING. STAY FOCUSED ON ME AND LET ALL OTHER THINGS FADE AWAY…REST IN ME AND MY LOVE AND WITHOUT ANY EFFORT OF YOUR OWN, YOU WILL FIND THAT IT IS IN THE REST THAT THE BIRTHING COMES!”


Isaiah 55:10-11 (TPT)
“As the snow and rain that fall from Heaven do not return until they have accomplished their purpose, soaking the earth and causing it to sprout with new life, providing seed to sow and bread to eat. So also will be the word that I speak; it does not return to Me unfulfilled. My word performs My purpose and fulfills the mission I sent it out to accomplish.”

Habakkuk 2:1-3 (AMP)
“I will stand at my guard post and station myself on the tower; and I will keep watch to see what He will say to me, and what answer I will give [as His spokesman] when I am reproved. Then the Lord answered me and said, ‘Write the vision and engrave it plainly on [clay] tablets so that the one who reads it will run. For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time it hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, because it will certainly come; it will not delay.'”

Isaiah 54:1-3 (NLT)
“‘Sing, O childless woman, you who have never given birth! Break into loud and joyful song, O Jerusalem, you who have never been in labor. For the desolate woman now has more children than the woman who lives with her husband,’ says the Lord. ‘Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.'”

Mass of Erupting Volcanoes

 

Volcán de Fuego

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!”
