Take up your cup and your lamp and follow Me, and I will take you on a journey that will establish in you My perfect will, and you will begin to see why you had to go through the hardships and the stretchings of the past. This is the day I will establish in you My plan, and I will bring it forth through you, for I am calling forth a people who have been prepared in the oven of My burning love. You have watched My hand mold you and prepare you, though the heat at times seemed unbearable. You have seen My grace, My enabling power, bring you through every time where you were able to stand unwavering with head set like flint against the evil one.
You need to be like a dog with a bone, never letting go of My promises, when the forces of darkness come against you trying to rob you. Be bold, be strong, for the Lord thy God is with you. Be not dismayed for I Am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you. I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness. With all that in mind I want you to rejoice for no weapon formed against you will prosper. I Am your healer. I will not allow man to come against you to destroy the seed of faith I planted within you. And it will grow and develop a bumper crop of My glory and grace. And My word will spread like wild fire for I have prepared you in the oven of My glory.
Reach out this day and touch Me and know that I am faithful. Do not look at the circumstances surrounding you and become discouraged. Look up for your redemption draws nigh. For this is the day to shout and to rejoice and to proclaim My victory in the land. For didn’t I give My life that you would be free, My people? Was it just a spiritual freedom or was it a birthing of a new man…..mind, soul and spirit?
And I am calling forth My bride to be My messagers of My glory and grace. Shout the alarm. Proclaim a fast to draw close to My holy presence. Draw near and I will fill your cup to overflowing, and I will trim your lamp that it will burn brightly. Do not let anything stand in your way for this is the day of salvation to set the captives free to be all that I have called them to be. For I love those who I gave My life for.
And I will walk mightily through My holy ones, and I will pull down the strongholds of the evil one, and I will set up My kingdom, My glory and My power forever. For you stand on the side of freedom and might. Do not be dismayed, but be filled this day with My glory and might. Stay covered with My armor of light, and My joy will crush the evil one under your feet as you are shielded with My perfect peace. Proclaim My victory in the land, and wave your banner for your King reigns supreme. No power can stand against the Lamb of God, the Lion of Judah, the Prince of Peace.
Remain silent in your flesh, but bring forth a raging fire using My words spoken through your spirit. The power through My words will bring down the enemy’s camp like the walls of Jericho falling. And you will see My glory spread and people running from the enemy towards My light and love. For I am calling forth My harvesters to reap the bumper crop. Proclaim the victory! And not only will I bring forth a harvest for My glory, but I will crush the enemy under My feet.
Look past the cloud of darkness sweeping across the land. Look past it, and see My light and My glory. Keep your eyes on My promises and what I plan to do. I will bring amazement to those who do not know Me. They will not deny that I AM the King of Glory, and that I reign supreme. I will bring all men to their knees, and all will acknowledge that I AM Lord before the final judgment. But not all will receive Me even then, but know that all men will have the freedom to choose life or death, blessing or cursing. Just be sensitive to My leading, and share My light and My love to all.
Reach out and touch Me and stay by My side, and I will bring you through safely for no man can steal My promise of eternal salvation from your heart. For yes, you will dwell with Me forever. So fear not and go forth and take the land. Keep your eyes on Me and never let go. No matter what you see, waver not in unbelief. Look past the natural and stand behind your shield and use your sword and trample down the enemy. For I am calling forth My army to march across the land. One that will not bow down to the enemy’s devices. For they overcome by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony, and they love not their lives unto death.
I uphold you, I strengthen you, and I send you out this day to tear down, to build up, and to reap all I gave My life for. Go out and take the land. I put My armor upon you. I clothe you in My glory to blind the enemy and to bring confusion to his camp. I am commissioning the young ones to be strong. I am raising up the elderly to be mighty. Not one will be left out, because I move through all My holy ones. So connect together, and be one in spirit and purpose. Do not allow the enemy to divide you no matter what. Be strong in your marriages. Love your children. Respect those in leadership. And be ready, says your King.
Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
