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!!!

Complete Restoration

Daily Encouragement –

Do you need a little R&R? A little rest? A little relaxation? Do you desire a renewal? A restoration in body and mind?

True renewal and restoration can only come from Me! I made you and know what you need. You need more than an abundance of sleep and relaxation. You need your very soul restored. 

Come to Me! Return to Me! I am The Water of Life! I am able to renew and restore you over and over again! The things of this world can never truly satisfy or restore. These things will leave you wasted and wanting more. 

I want to fill you completely with all of My power, glory, and life so it overflows continually out of you. Come to Me over and over again, and I will fill you completely and continually!!! I love you My child!
