Before a meeting with a couple of students, I was asking the Lord for some wisdom on how to see the situation they were facing as they see it. And the Lord began to show me how it was as if they were standing in front of an 8-foot wall and looking straight at it. He began to show me how if we were only to look up that we would see Jesus’ hand extended towards us to pull us up on top of that wall. And if we were to do that, we would stand in authority with Him through the Spirit, showing us that we have overcome that “wall” - or in Hebrew “chomah”. Chomah, means a defensive wall of a city or fortress.
The Lord just began unfolding our need to rely on His resurrection power. It is so great. It is so powerful. But, get ready, we must get over ourselves! By DENYING ourselves daily so that we can look up to even accept the hand of Jesus extended to us - we will then choose to see Jesus and our authority with Him.
He stands on that wall, His wall of fire… but our wall of humanity. Saying He has overcome the wall, look, see, that it is burning!
Two nights ago, I dreamt a second time of our need to repent. As I was tossing back and forth for a couple hours, I was dreaming of something but all I could hear and remember was repent - not just personal repentance but a corporate repentance. ( Mark 1:15, “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”)
And while I was hearing repentance as clear as a sounding alarm, I also dreamt of flying from the outer courts of the galaxies. It was intense as I saw the vastness of space. As I was brought through the galaxies, I began to see our solar system and the sun. But right as I came upon the familiarity of our solar system I was made to look down and was shot into a gigantic asteroid - like the asteroid from Armaggedon. Once into the depth and the darkness of this mass, I saw the Earth’s surface and a particle from the asteroid that had broken off and hit, destroying what around it - like a lightening bolt. This ended the dream.
I felt that the Lord was saying as we enter in to the inner courts from the outer, and begin to destroy the strongholds in our lives from the inside out - things will break off (our favorite sins, our anger, our easy offenses, the old) and as the passing earth will be destroyed (not literally).. the Word says in Revelation 21:1-5, “Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!”
One night at 24Flood, our Dearborn House of Prayer, I was reminded of an image I was affected by that the Lord gave me while at Prayer Watch 2010 at IHOP-KC in August about the Bride of Christ dressed in WHITE! No ribbons, no stains, no extras… a wedding dress that was PURE WHITE and shining!
While I was at a prayer meeting in November leading worship, for a movement of God called E.A.C.H. happening in Southeastern Michigan, the Lord gave me a song about getting back to His heart and what that really meant. I shared this message on a couple Sundays after.
