“When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-14
Grace, Sovereignty, New Beginnings and Doors!
I’m seeing unusual things in my spirit today.
I see many people in long robes, rather like they wore when Jesus walked around all those years ago.
It’s quiet, almost sombre, and I can hear a quiet worship song as they walk around.
This goes on for a while until the same people begin Dancing! They start with a quiet, easy dance which soon escalates into a joyful, noisy celebration.
As the Dance proceeds to get more lively, I notice that people begin to throw off their long robes to reveal more celebratory style clothing.
I asked The LORD what I was seeing, and why? He gave to me this verse –
“You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.” Psalm 30:11-12
I waited as I knew there would be more coming. The LORD then answered me.
“What you see, is My People fulfilling — as best they are able — their part in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14.
You see them repenting, yet still able to worship Me. You see the effects of that repentance as I pour out My Spirit on them.
You see them realise their forgiveness and they begin to celebrate. Finally, you see My People Dancing in the joy of healing and revival.
The joy of Healing and Revival will come as I heal your land, and you will dance through any persecution as I complete the turn around in this coming year.
I AM giving Grace to endure and forgive your persecutors.
I will sovereignly protect My People.
I will bring those who are willing to the place of New Beginnings.
I will open Doors for you as you follow The Holy Spirit’s leading.
This is what you must Pray, Decree, Declare and expect in this coming year of 5784.
It is the year of The Open Door!” declares The LORD.
