I heard The LORD say, “Celebrate — for it is your birthday from the dead!”
Even though it is not an easy thing to wait upon The LORD, because the enemy knows it is our greatest weapon when we stand and wait, he always tries to distract us.
But in this period of resting and waiting, our strength is being renewed and we are getting ready to mount up with wings like eagles.
From what we are gathering, in this keeping silence before God, we will run and not be weary and we will endure the walk without fainting.
Yet I truly tell you, there are questions, a lot of labours were done, a lot of seeds sown, some just began the planting and some were at the peak of reaping the harvest after a long period of sowing.
Now all of a sudden it looks like its all going to start again from the scratch. What do we hope for?
In a recent encounter with The LORD, I saw a believer, and The LORD asked him to travel to his home town to celebrate his (the believer’s) birthday.
When he was about going, The LORD gave him these Words to pray at the celebration: “Let your power raise me up to serve you in place of my father.”
I wondered why The LORD gave him this prayer request. But on reaching his home town, this believer discovered that his birthday celebration was a burial ceremony of his father, and a very large crowd of people were present at the celebration.
Coming out of this encounter, I took time to pray and converse with The Holy Ghost about the symbols and events.
I asked about the connection between birthday and death, and The Spirit led me to Colossians 1:18,
“And he is the head of The Body, The Church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.”
And again I asked, why should he pray for resurrection life of his father to take his place? And who is this his father? The Spirit led me to Isaiah 9:6.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Then The LORD said. “Say to Zion, ‘The enemy is celebrating the death of My BODY, thinking Zion will not rise, but I tell you, look to My Resurrection Life and Power, for I AM the resurrection and life — the first born from the dead.
My resurrection life is poured out upon you. You are being raised up to walk in My Life and resurrection like never before.
Even now the demonstration of My Resurrection Power is what is bringing in the restoration and the revival. The enemy is celebrating your death — but I say, ‘Celebrate! for it is your birthday from the dead.’ ‘ “
I have been decreeing this Word for some days and yesterday I had a word encounter through The Holy Ghost. In the Midst of praying and decreeing this Word, I encountered this scripture;
“‘Now will I rise,’ saith The LORD, ‘now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself,'” Isaiah 33:10.
Then The LORD said to me, “Say to the nations, ‘Now! Now! I say even Now will I rise and be exalted above all things, above all nations will I be exalted for In all things I have the preeminence.’ ”
Blessings in Christ,
