Time for the Accelerated Ascent

This morning as I awoke abruptly at 5 to the sound of my almost two year old’s cry of, “Mama!”, I recognized that I had had a very significant dream that unfortunately I had no time to try and recall the details of, lest Elam wake up his brother as well. As the morning went on, I attempted to recall the entirety of the dream, though I could only remember one glimpse of it. I knew that it was pertinent and needed to be revisited, so the first moment I got alone after putting the boys down for a nap, I went to my new ‘wrecked’ spot in our PRAY/PLAY room to ascend the hill of the Lord and seek His face…perhaps He would also allow me to re-receive the Word/vision.

As I sat and prayed, listened to an incredible live conversation between Larry Sparks and Nate Johnston about “No More Delay” recorded last night, and reflected on the Word of the Lord for me this morning, the Lord began to direct me back to the place I was in in the vision in the night. What could I do in that moment but to write as He revealed revelations of glory?…

In the dream, I walked through a set of double doors like you would see at an event center or conference center. The room was almost like a large-scale conference room set to house about ten thousand people or so. There was the floor area where I was standing and gazing upward, I saw a secondary section wrapping around the room of chairs almost like an arena. The lights were dimmed in the entirety of that section and the focus was on the ground level. As I looked around the room, There were rows of chairs set up in two sections off in the back of the bottom level. There was probably enough chairs set up for about five hundred to sit in. The chairs were empty except for the right section which had about two hundred people.
I could see in the spirit that there was either a video that had been played or was being played that stated the calculation of the size of the upcoming global harvest. I knew that the group of people standing and seated in the chairs were the intercessors for the harvest. There were millions of souls that were destined to be reaped as a reward. I thought it odd panning around the room that it was primarily empty, especially since we are talking about the global harvest!
These intercessors were in deep travail, bold declaration, and in heavy warfare over the promise and release of the harvest. Suddenly, I could feel the intense desire and longing of the Lord for this entire room to be filled with His intercessors. I could hear the voice of the Lord emphatically saying, “No, no, no…this is not enough! The harvest is so great! Where are they that would prepare the way? Where are all of My other warriors that would strike the ground with their prayers and break up the fallow soil to make way? Do you not realize the time? Do you not understand that My blueprints have been drawn up and it is time to take hold of them, time to set your face like flint and tear down every demonic hindrance and stronghold in your land? AWAKEN TO THE REALITY THAT THE TIME IS NOW! I DESIRE NO MORE DELAY! It is time to stop keeping your blueprints at an arm’s reach; and to take hold of what will undoubtedly change the course of eternity! The projection of the harvest is immense, but I want it to be so much greater and the wave so much stronger! If My marked ones would rise up and open their mouths and loose their tongues, then I would come in and bulldoze every delay agent in an accelerated pace. Oh, how the harvest would become so immense as you truly take hold of what is extended to you!”

Hosea 10:12 (AMP)
Sow with a view to righteousness [that righteousness, like seed, may germinate]; reap in accordance with mercy and lovingkindness. Break up your uncultivated ground, for it is time to seek and search diligently for the Lord [and to long for His blessing] until He comes to rain righteousness and His gift of salvation on you.
(NLT)
I said, “Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the Lord, that He may come and shower righteousness upon you.”

Beloved, the weight of the desire of the Lord for the awakening of His marked ones, His intercessors, His change agents is greatly overwhelming. The power of prayer and declaration is mighty in the Kingdom and bears much reward. With the global harvest, as well as in our own lives, we must readjust our mindsets. To say that we know these things are imminent, and then to do nothing with this knowledge is disappointing to the heart of God. He longs to bring these things upon His creation, but He also desire us to participate and partner with Him in what He is doing in the nations. To sit idly by and to do nothing will only aid in the delay of its release as well as leave us out of the blessings that are to come through partnership. 

Every single one of the chairs in the dream were meant to be filled with fiery burning ones, demolishing enemy forces, and establishing Kingdom release in the earth. Do not let the enemy bind up your mouth for when you decree and declare the things of Heaven in the mighty name of Jesus, all the angels in Heaven respond immediately. Once a declaration is spoken, there is a response on its way. A divine exchange.

A quote from Jennifer Eivaz wrecked me as I received this prophetic download, “Before there is ever a revival, the Lord will send an intercessor.” Intercession breaks up the hard soil, the fallow ground. Fallow literally means unused, unproductive, uncultivated, and left for a period of time without being sown to restore its fertility.

While listening to the “No More Delay” message stated at the beginning of this post, Larry Sparks shared some powerful insight and prophetic revelation Holy Spirit spoke regarding the delay of release of prophecy, “The prophets will prophesy. Where are My apostles to bring alignment to the Word? Where are the evangelists and teachers–the five-fold ministry? Where are the people that would actually act like the prophetic word is true and will reorient and realign their lives to accommodate the prophetic word?” The role of the prophet is to ascend to the hill of the Lord and in that place of seeking, He releases a word, vision, prophecy; and the responsibility of the prophet is to release such revelation at the proper given time. The four other roles of the five-fold ministry are to take the word, awaken to and allow it to bring transformation, and to put it to use in whatever way Holy Spirit leads. We are all called to pray, intercede, and war in the spiritual alongside the Greatest Intercessor (Jesus) to bring the will of the Father about. This shared partnership, this whole being then comes together in a divine synergy with Holy Spirit at work and thus the will of the Lord is released in power in the earth, in the nations.

So you see brothers and sisters, we simply cannot do nothing with the Word. We simply cannot allow it to be released and not take it up, pray it into reality, and run with it. We simply must not allow ourselves to become apathetic to the call and desire of the Lord. My question for you today is this, are you ready to rise up and receive, apply, realign, intercede, war, fight, run, and ascend until the fullness of the Word and desire of the Lord is released into the nations? Or are you going to allow it to remain fallow until a person and generation arises that is willing to count the cost and go all in? The choice is yours.

Call to Go (Southeast Asia)

IMG_3013

I remember now why I do not take showers in the morning in Asia. The bone-chilling cold water should be reserved for after sweating all day in the heat. However, I am truly awake now as I write this.  This is just one of the few things when God has called us to go, we must give up to say yes.

Your will, your way, your wants and desires are always difficult to give up. “I want it my way.” You may not ever say it out loud, but this is the way you are. I know this, because this is the way I am.  Graciously, the Lord granted me several confirmations that this was a trip I was supposed to be on. I do not often get such clear direction and continually receive confirmation I am supposed to go. I usually just give Him my Yes out of faith.

After the 30+ hours of travel, I can say thank the Lord for giving me the ability to say Yes. Sitting on a plane for any extended amount of time is physically uncomfortable, to put it mildly. However, for me, it has always been hard to sleep so it becomes that much more difficult. But none of this matters because I have said Yes to Jesus and His call for me to go. Unfamiliar places, faces, food, accommodations… None of this really matters for I have given my whole-hearted Yes to Jesus and His way.  

The people here are worth it because He loves them. Even more than that, He is worth it and I love Him!!! Right now, in your life, what is of the greatest value? What do you love the most? What would you hold on to if everything else was stripped away? What if God called you to give that up to Go for Him?  Could you do it? 

My prayer for you is that you hear the call of the Lord to Go and that you say as Isaiah did, “Here I am, send Me!!! No matter the cost, no matter the price I will follow You and say Yes!!!” Jesus is worth flying to the other side of the world and giving up so much! In the same way, He is worth it to lay down your fear, pride, selfishness, to walk next door, up the street, down the fruit aisle… Or wherever else He may have you. He is worth it to give all that You have to speak His good news!!! He gave first, and He gave His best for you.

What do you have to give the Creator of the Universe??? 

I give You my, Yes and my obedience!!! Here I am!!! Send Me!!!

Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Thus says the Lord: “In an acceptable time I have heard You, And in the day of salvation I have helped You; I will preserve You and give You As a covenant to the people, To restore the earth, To cause them to inherit the desolate heritages; That You may say to the prisoners, ‘Go forth,’ To those who are in darkness, ‘Show yourselves.’…”

Stability, Strength, Treasure

Daily Encouragement – 

Is there something missing in your life? Do you feel lacking in substance or strength? Do you want to be strong and stable in these uncertain times? 

I am The God of Grace and Salvation!!! Trouble, weakness, and instability may come upon you, but these never affect Me. My grace, glory, power, and strength never wane even in uncertain times. 

I desire to share all of Who I am with you that you may walk closely with Me. Lift Me up! Seek Me and My Way! As you seek Me out, I will lead you into righteousness. I will pour out wisdom and knowledge from heaven that you may walk stable in all your ways. Only in Me will you find true strength!

You were never meant to walk through this life on your own!!! Come to Me! Cry out to Me for help in time of trouble! It is time to seek Me and worship Me right where you are. In the middle of your greatest weakness and oppression, I will prove Myself to be The Mighty One, your Savior!!!

20 And it will be for a sign and for a witness to the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the Lord because of the oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Mighty One, and He will deliver them.”

Strength in Struggle

Daily Encouragement –

Are you strong in power and ability? Where does your strength come from? What have you done to become mighty?

Never forget, you are not self-made! You cannot save yourself! You cannot rescue or cause yourself to be helped! No matter your physical or mental capabilities, you need help! You need Me!

Come to Me! Do not forget that I am the God who saved you and made a way. Through Jesus, you can be saved from sin and death, set free from bondage and destruction, and healed of sickness and backsliding. 

I am your Safety and Strength in times of peace and struggle! I am the One who made you! How much more do I know your purpose and destiny and can empower you to walk fully the way you were designed? You need me so desperately whether you realize it or not!!!

Come to Me and receive freely all My overflowing blessings (safety, strength, and so much more) that you may walk in My way with Me! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 17:7 “In that day a man will look to his Maker, And his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel.”
10 “Because you have forgotten the God of your salvation, And have not been mindful of the Rock of your stronghold…”

Eternal Purpose

Daily Encouragement –

What is your purpose? What are your plans? How are you going to make these things happen? 

Having a purpose and plan is not a bad thing, but completely useless apart from Me! Your true purpose and calling can only be found in Me, your Creator. The wisdom and ability to complete the perfect plan for your life only comes from Me. Come to Me and receive everlasting purpose and the ability to carry it out! 

I will enable you to do far more than you could ever do on your own as you come to Me! By yourself, you may be able to accomplish a few things in this world that last a short time. However, My Kingdom is eternal and everlasting! I want to give you a place of prominence in My eternal Kingdom. 

Come to Me and step into all I have for you!!! I love you My son!!!

Isaiah 14:24 “The Lord of hosts has sworn, saying, ‘Surely, as I have thought, so it shall come to pass, And as I have purposed, so it shall stand:'”
