“Joshua was up early and on his way from Shittim with all the People of Israel with him. He arrived at the Jordan and camped before crossing over. After three days, leaders went through the camp and gave out orders to the people: “When you see the Covenant-Chest of God, your God, carried by the Levitical priests, start moving. Follow it. Make sure you keep a proper distance between you and it, about half a mile — be sure now to keep your distance! — and you’ll see clearly the route to take. You’ve never been on this road before,” Joshua 3:1-4, MSG.
My child, you are entering unfamiliar territory. Yes, even as the children of Israel crossed over the Jordan, so are My forerunners crossing into a new place. It may seem strange at first, but look closely and you will see footprints. I have gone before you. I left My footprints to be markers for you and to comfort you that I know the way I AM taking you.
The evil one and his agents are only reacting to me. They do not have the upper hand. I AM with you and live in you so be strong and courageous. I will guide you with My eye, so you must keep your focus on Me. My true sheep know My voice and will be quick to come when I call.
I AM rising up in My separated ones: the true-hearted, loyal ones, who have been diligent to study and follow My Word and to seek Me in the days of trial. A spiritual shift has occurred; these dear ones are prepared to move with me. Their resolve has been established on the Rock and they are ready.
It is time to cross the Jordan: no looking back or hesitation. I AM releasing a spirit of dread and fear on My enemies. They think they are safe behind their fortified walls of corruption built with filthy lucre.* But they are wrong. They will shake with fear even as the people of Jericho shook in the days of Joshua. I will do a greater work in this day for it will not be limited to one city. I will shake the nations and My people will rise up with Me taking the spoils for the Kingdom of Heaven.
I come to set the captives free from religious shackles. I come to restore righteous government in My Church and in the governments of the sheep nations. I come to fill the earth with the knowledge of My glory. No man can stop Me; neither can the evil one and his minions hinder Me.
I AM on the move and My people are rising up at My call. These are the days you were born for; it will be your greatest hour. I know the way. Stay close to Me. There are glorious adventures ahead. You will have to fight, but I’ve given you My armor — so wear it.
Receive My blessings and words of comfort and instructions. It’s time to cross over into the fullness of the Spirit with Me. Shalom.
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil,” Ephesians 6:10-11, NKJV.
