“Rise up, My People, Rise up!
Today is the time, the hour, the day for freedom! Freedom in Me! Rise up!
Take the bull by the horns! Grab on, and hang on, like never before!”
I saw someone before me. They were in an arena with a bull, who had his head down, like he was going to charge.
The person grabbed onto the bull’s horns. Then suddenly the bull threw its head up in the air and the person’s body flew up in the air, as they hung on tight to the horns of the bull.
The bull threw his head up again, now moving from side to side, as the person continued to hang on tightly.
The person was being beaten, while they were flapping back and forth, side to side. I wondered how much longer they could hang on. They were looking pretty bruised and beaten.
Once more the bull’s head went up and down. The person still hanging looked like a wet wash cloth being thrown around, as they hung on desperately, as if their hands were glued to the horns.
Then the person cried out, “JESUS!” (Acts 4:12; 22:16; Romans 10:13; 2 Corinthians 3:17)
The bull lowered his head and stood with his legs spread wide, like he was trying to support himself to keep standing, as his whole body was shaking violently.
The person hung limply from the bull’s horns, until their body touched the ground, as the bull dropped his head.
I could see Jesus standing there in front of the bull, carefully loosening the fingers from the horns.
Then He gently picked up the exhausted, limp, beaten and bruised person to gather them into His arms. He carried them away from the bull and the hard ride they’d just experienced.
The LORD said, “Many of My Beloveds have been experiencing that hard ride from the enemy or the bull.
They hung on for dear life, to keep from being trampled in the arena of life they’ve been in this season.
For some, they have thought they would never get to escape the arena, that surely they’d be destroyed by the bull before they’d be rescued and removed.
Their trials and tribulations have been many, for some it has seemed overwhelming.
Some remembered to grab the bull’s horns to hang onto them, for safety, just as Adoniijah did.
“Adonijah feared because of Solomon, and arose and went [to the tabernacle tent on Mt. Zion] and caught hold of the horns of the altar [as a fugitive’s refuge].
It was told Solomon, Behold, Adonijah fears King Solomon, for behold, he has caught hold of the horns of the altar, saying, Let King Solomon swear to me first that he will not slay his servant with the sword.
Solomon said, If he will show himself to be a worthy man, not a hair of him shall fall to the ground; but if wickedness is found in him, he shall die. (Heb 4:16; Ex 21:14)” 1 Kings 1: 50-52.
Adoniijah did not end well, even though he grabbed the horns of the altar for safety. The consequences of his words and actions caught up with him. Evil does not pay well in the end.
Know many of you are getting off the hard ride of this past season to experience a whole new world than what has been before.
As you’ve hung onto Me for safety, despite what the enemy has tried to do to destroy you. You have called out My Name and have sought Me as your refuge. (2 Sam 22:2-3; Jeremiah17:5;
Isaiah 30:1-2; Psalm 20:7-8; 28:8;46:7; 62:6-7;91:2; Zechariah 4:6; Matthew 7:26-27)
Some have sought Me for healing, as well. (Exodus 15:26; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; Luke 6:17-19; Acts 10:38)
So will you come forth into My Light, for a NEW DAY is dawning! (Isaiah 43:19; 58:8; 60:1, 3; Psalm 37:6)
Even as you are getting off that hard ride, know that the enemy will be getting on a “BIGGER and BADDER” BULL than you can imagine.
For the ride he and his minions are getting on will seem like their worst night mare, even though there is much more for them in the end.
Remember, VENGEANCE IS MINE! (Deuteronomy 32:35; Romans 12:17-19)
You haven’t seen anything yet!”
