Unusual Glimpses Of Glory!
There are unusual glimpses of His glory that are about to show up in your everyday routines that God is now assigning to His Angels to perform as signs to you, that you are still on the right road! These are encounters that you will have suddenly in answer to your hunger and thirst for Him.
Some of these encounters are coming to you so that you will not give up in this season! Count these unusual encounters as God’s little appetizers before He brings out the main course! He is about to set a table before you in the presence of your enemies!
You are going from Featherweight to Heavyweight!
Do you realize that this test is working for you? As long as you keep your eyes fixed on that which is eternal and not on the problem you will end up with a greater weight of glory!
You will be a heavyweight in the spirit! Thank you lord!
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal,” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NKJV).
Whenever we go through persecutions, tests, and trials. We can rejoice because God is always getting rid of bad roots, as we focus on what He is doing in us, as we go through it. This in turn readies us, for the greater thing that we are about to be promoted to….
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed, always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So then death is working in us, but life in you,” 2 Corinthians 4:7-12.
With the recent news of the shootings in Oregon, I just wanted to say before I go to sleep, that it is time to put our trust in the Lord and always go to bed knowing that you should be ready to go to be with Him. We are not promised tomorrow, but only this moment.
I feel heavy in my heart tonight for those that are even right this moment losing their life to some senseless act of violence or drug overdose terrorist attacks etc.. There is a place that Jesus said that he went to prepare for you and it is beyond even our imagination. There are no earthly patterns to compare that place to. Oh yes, The older I get, the more I want to be there with him, but right now, He has us praying for others and ministering where we can.
We are to be His light to those in darkness here and now. We are to love those that he puts before us. I fail at this everyday in so many ways but His mercy is new every morning and He gives us the grace and enables us to Love more and love better than we did yesterday.
I am so thankful that he Gave us His life and His example to follow. How I want to be more Like Him. Help me Lord, Help all of us. May we stay in your presence long enough so that when we come out that we will even smell like your cologne! Rest well in the arms of the one who loves us so.
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also,” John 14:1-3 (KJV).
Breaking Foundations to bring Restoration
I just heard the Lord say
“What seems to be shaking right now will truly turn to joy, as I take you out of your old way of doing things!
I AM about to come in and shake up and break up some old patterns, foundations and ways of doing things in this hour and in this day!
This generation coming up, will be in need to see my raw power as many of you did in the beginning of your walks! I AM stirring up the pot again!
Reformation is coming to the Church and to the nations because I AM blowing on some bad foundations!
The patterns and styles of your day are old and I must again bring a reformation to My church, for I AM a God of the now and I AM relevant to all generations!
The way that you did things in the past will no longer work in this new season. Stop beating a dead horse! Not only to my church will I bring this change, but to your nation also, and I will again blow upon you and what seems like a hard fast wind, will be the wind that will come to shake some bad foundations and that which has been built upon them!
You have been set in your ways, as in the days of your fathers and a stirring had to take place! A shifting, and a shaking, I AM birthing the Glorious Church in this hour and in this Day!”
I AM making My Angels winds in this hour
“I AM making My angels winds at this time and they shall turn over some of the tables of the money changers, as they blow upon the earth!
I AM about to make My house, a house of prayer for all nations and joy and laughter will be in my house once again!”
I also saw angels coming as servants to bring scrolls to the people of god and suddenly the people of God would receive these words from God’s throne and would begin to speak about the reformation to come! These will be now words for this time! They will paint the vision so that they that hear it will be able to run with it!
I actually felt this happened to me tonight as I caught a glimpse of an angel and then suddenly I sensed the presence of the Lord and began hearing this word!
i will blow some of the old back into the New
With this wind, I will blow some of the old back into the new.
(Suddenly as I was sitting here, I heard some music and sensed the power of the tent revivals from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s) and it seemed like I smelled the smells of sawdust and felt that period of time, as if I were watching a movie from that period and it was beautiful! I saw miracles, and signs,wonders, people in all day prayer meetings, and I even saw resurrections happening!
There was power, power, wonder working power in the midst of the people again! I saw men of God silenced by The Lord during services, so that they would not “mess up” what the Holy Spirit wanted to do! This in turn would change them and their ministry forever!
I saw demons fleeing because of the power of God!
The fire of the Holy Spirit will be seen in many gatherings, and I saw people dancing, but not in their own power but under the influence of the power of the Holy Ghost! When they did, the power of the Spirit would sweep across a whole region because these people who were on fire with this presence would become doors and gates for heavenly visitation in that City!
Part of this, I saw happening also because, as the Kingdom of God was being established through the worship of God’s people, there were many that would run in and be delivered of demons of drug addiction, and diseases caused by spirits that had been allowed to remain for many years because there had been no moving of the Spirit of God in that region. But they would run into these tent meetings and devils would begin to manifest because they knew they had to give up their residence and go back to the dry places from where they came!
These were deep seated generational spirits that had been in a family or region for many years!
“Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. And there was great joy in that city,” Acts 8:5-8.
I saw baptisms happening everywhere
I saw people being baptized and when they would go under the water they would come up laughing for joy at the freedom that they now had in Christ!
I wish that you could see what I am seeing right now! I see a new, “old” world.
Everything I am seeing looks like it could of happened before 1960. I am seeing a new age of innocence returning for the people of God. I see people hungering after God!
I see them getting washed clean,only to have a new start! No longer will they have to dread a religious ceremony but will see renewal, revival, restoration, refreshing, healing, and deliverance as they begin to run to the River of God!
Oh glory to His name! Get ready for the greatest days the church has ever seen! And oh, yes, darkness will cover the earth, but the glory of The Lord, will arise upon you!
