“I overflow with praise when I come before you, for the anointing of your presence satisfies me like nothing else. You are such a rich banquet of pleasure to my soul.” Psalm 63:5 TPR
Today The LORD spoke to my soul while His Army marches from the North leaving me to my daily routines.
The quietness sings within my soul like an open window to heaven letting His Light brush my spirit with His Voice.
“I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in!” Malachi 3:10 NLT
“Angela, What do you see?”
I close my eyes and immediately I am taken up and I see The Father sitting upon His Throne.
I am standing off in the distance of His Great Room and a luminous light shines upon His Robe reflecting a radiate glory. I feel such safety when dwelling here.
As I linger, I glance just before His Throne to see on bended knee a row of praying saints in tattered robes.
I note how their robes are worthy of merit and His Lamp shines upon their heads. Knowing they have traveled far to reach this sacred place of prayer and sense their readiness to hear His Voice to settle their soul.
As I witness their prayers being exhibited like a soaring eagle above their heads, my attention is drawn to their tethered hearts. Within their body a tiny burst of light begins to form. It starts very small, but soon becomes the size of a tennis ball growing every so slightly. I watch with curiosity.
I am given a knowing that the growing light within each is the appearance of their faith. As they pray, it is being forged like a burning bon fire within their body while a slight glow of the burning fire reaches their face.
Then I hear, “Their faith is produced when they stand in despite of what they see, feel or experience. Their struggles have no authority over their faith. When their Faith becomes unmovable, they never get blown or tossed to the winds.
They believe without a doubt that My Word is absolute authority and live by it!
You see, this is the result of one’s biblical faith in the form of My Fire that comes to knit their body, soul and spirit into unity.”
“:This is why I remind you to fan into flame the spiritual gifts God gave you when I laid my hands on you.” 2 Timothy 1:6
“This awakening of Faith draws them to My Power — My Voice becomes their power source! They cannot be moved, but the fire within grows and takes hold to set ablaze for a super natural upgrade.
As each come to drink from My Cup [Presence of God] they are fanning My Spirit’s flame. Pursuing Me first above all else to keep their fire stirring.
They know to wait! Listening for My Voice — shutting the mouths of the lions and over throwing the kingdoms outside My Gates.
My Fire burns in strength like the Israelites in Jericho who marched for seven days until the walls came crashing down.
It is by kindled faith that the Israelites were able to enter the Red Sea as though it was dry ground, but when the Egyptians tried to follow they drowned.
My Fire burns away the voice of the world allowing My Voice to be heard providing much wealth, many comforts and puts all things not of Me to death! Hallelujah!
Fanning My Fire satisfies more than life itself! Turning every weakness into strength!
They do not treat My Word as suggestion, but commandments to follow each day. Spending time in My Law [Word of God] leads to My Garden of bountiful!
No concern for the many waters to cross for My Fire is being fed to melt any and all dross within one’s heart; revealing treasures beyond any understanding; to allow for My Love to quickly take hold deep within one’s soul.
Peace to each. . . who have met My Gift!
He comes to teach hearts to know all things I hold dear.
I have sent Him for this purpose to know My Heart beats within one’s soul.
Every lamb has a River Jordan to cross. As The Spirit fans the flame of Faith many will find My Son waiting on their shoreline.
He is calling you to come to His Shore. (John 21:4)
Just like the disciples, who did not recognize His Presence, do not dwell here, come to know this is the commencement of your ministry.
The time is now, get going, time to move!
Put on your upper garment and see Christ in everything.
Your royal robe like the one Jonathan gave to David is knitted to your soul. A royal garment of Heaven that lives and works to change your whole perspective of life.
It makes everything bright and beautiful, blessed and calm, strength to have the nerve for duty, sustains against every trial, leads to triumphant gladness through regions with sparkling lands of My Love and Praise upon My Throne.
With My Everlasting Love,
Do you want a move of God that is tangibly felt in this day and age like it was displayed in the book of Acts, chapter 2?
That is what God desires too!
He longs for us to burn for Him — when we hunger for Him, we become partners in His Glory.
How many are sleeping or spiritually unaware?
God wants us to be upgraded into notable miracles and greater works — we need to accept the supernatural upgrade God is offering by asking Him to come alongside us as we journey through life that He designed especially for us. We not only need his presence we need His Power.
The Bible tells us in Acts 10:39 that God anointed Jesus “with Holy Spirit and power.” T he presence and power are not the same thing, one is a person and the other is the power of God.
When Jesus breathed on the disciples, they received the person, but they needed the power.
In Acts 2:2-4 we read a very powerful description about the birth of the Spirit-filled Church. As the disciples were waiting in the upper room, the supernatural wind of God began to rush through, creating a loud sound. Next, it says fire filled the house [atmosphere].
Right there, we are given two different dimensions of the Spirit. The first is when The Holy Spirit comes inside them, then they had to wait for the power — revealing to us that the infilling of The Holy Spirit does not bring the same result as The Holy Spirit being on us.
The Holy Spirit being in us brings about what Jesus speaks of in The Book of John. Then Jesus describes The Holy Spirit as a comforter, teacher, and the one who will lead us and guide us into all truth — which is personal revelation and transformation.
For us to receive from God it arrives in an invisible form within an atmosphere in the form of power.
The Holy Spirit is the one who gives us gifts and we are all given different gifts that will benefit The Kingdom of God based on the call on our lives and to help others come into a relationship with Jesus.
In Acts 2, the disciples were upgraded into the fullness of God. The Spirit came on them, filled them, and He was with them.
We are given evidence of Him being with them because no one invited the thousands that came that day. That was the Spirit working with them. They were fully submerged in God’s fiery baptism.
We are filled with the Spirit for personal transformation and for being God’s witnesses.
“But you will receive power when The Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 NIV
Can you see there are three distinct dimensions or filling of the Spirit?
First filling being in you, the second filling being on you, and the third filling of the Spirit being with you, and that being “baptized in the Spirit” means to be submerged in the Spirit in all three of these aspects — excerpt by Chazdon Strickland, Keys to Walking in the Glory Realm.
Many Churches and denominations have different opinions on the gift of speaking in tongues or third filling of the spirit.
If you are looking to study and understand speaking in tongues, the only place to go for truth is God’s Word. Trusted Bible commentaries can help you gain more insight as well. Let’s take a look at some Bible verses regarding praying in the spirit [tongues].
“All of them were filled with The Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” Acts 2:4
“When Paul placed his hands on them, The Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.” Acts 19:6
“For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 14:2
Also keep in mind, the enemy comes to hinder us from experiencing God in the supernatural with spiritual blindness and deafness.
We know he is sneaky and he comes to place a veil over us, preventing us from seeing the glory of God.
In my experience, I waited until Holy Spirit specifically lead me to the above verses to pray in the spirit. I had no idea It was a filling, but after reading Chazdon book, it makes complete sense.
I had witnessed many extreme examples of this gift, but Holy Spirit is a wonderful teacher and he provided scriptures, books and others to witness to me. Once my understanding came in alignment with God’s word, I experienced His power.
Paul tells us what we will experience after the enemy’s veil is removed from our face. We begin to see the manifested glory of God and see ourselves transformed into His image:
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of The LORD, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of The LORD.” 2 Corinthians 3:18 NKJV
Whatever stirs our faith, if we do more of it, we will find ourselves moving with God into His anointing. You can’t have the glory of God without first having His Anointing.
Pray this prayer with me:
Dear Yahweh, I come before You by the blood of your son, Jesus. I repent for my generational sin and any sin that I have personally committed that is causing spiritual blindness or deafness in my life. By the fire of God, I thank you for destroying every evil veil or stumbling block within me.
Father, I thank You for Your glory realm. I ask that you bring me into Your glory. Letting me go from faith to faith, and glory to glory. I ask that You take me where I have never been before and manifest Your glory to me.
Holy Spirit, I thank You for Your fire. LORD, when You came on the day of Pentecost You submerged the early church in fire and brought them into the fullness of the supernatural. I pray that You do the same thing for me.
LORD, I ask right now that I would not only speak in tongues, but that You would submerge me in Your fire, engulf me in Your flame so that I am completely consumed by the fire of God.
LORD, set the fire ablaze within me in the name of Jesus. I pray that every power that would try to extinguish my flame and dry out my spiritual life will be extinguished!
I pray the power of the blood of Jesus over any evil powers and that they would be eliminated from my life in Jesus’ Name. I thank You for the example of the first spirit filled church in the book of Acts where Your fire came and they began to move in the supernatural.
Right now, Father, let Your fire come and activate me. L et the gifts inside me be stirred right now, let the anointing inside me be stirred right now so I can walk in obedience to Your call.
Father, I thank You are stirring the fire within my spirit right now. I thank You and Praise you today that by My Faith I am receiving power to be Your witness, in Jesus Name I pray! AMEN!
