New Assignments and Positions for the Next Season


~ The Dream ~

I had a dream the other night about getting ready to speak at a Conference.  It was actually a huge banquet room.  Before the conference there were little girls there who I was trying to speak to.  I wanted to pour my heart out to them but they were reluctant.

I went to a room in the back that seemed like it was a place to lay down and rest.  I suddenly saw a man of God whom I knew who had had some physical ailments for a while, who was laying there…   He seemed to be imparting this ability to rest to others.

So I began to rest also.  Suddenly the lights came on in the banquet room and I knew that it was my time to speak but I hadn’t prepared…  but because I had rested, I knew that I would walk to the front and begin to worship, and that I would give my testimony.

I knew that it would just flow…  As I walked forward to where I would be speaking, the little girls suddenly wanted to go forward with me and began to hang onto my legs.  They wanted to do what I was going to do with me.  They wanted to know about the worship…

~ God Downloaded a Song ~

As I walked forward, suddenly the Lord spoke and said “You will only overcome in this season by the Blood of the Lamb, the word of your testimony, and loving not your life to the death”

The night before this, God had downloaded a song to me that was oriental sounding and the only words that I had been given were, “You are covered by the blood, covered by the blood….”  Over and over…

This is a season that as we see so much darkness happening in the world.  The only way we will be overcomers is to know what Jesus did at Calvary through His blood.  We must continue to speak out what the Lord has done in us, so that it will be increased in the next generation, and that we do not care if we die doing it, after all the threat of death should never scare a Christian.  Don’t threaten me with death, devil, because I have a win, win situation!

~ Young Children and Young Men and Women will be Drawn! ~

When I began to seek the Lord on this dream, He told me that in this season, some of us who are prophetic and older, more mature Christians, will be powerfully anointed to share what God has done in our lives, through our testimonies, and that this in turn would draw even young children to us.

They would literally hunger after this experience that we have had, and what we have learned from God!  There will be such a stark contrast between the darkness and the light that there will be many children and young people who will be drawn to the peace and the Glory of God!

This anointing that we will have to carry to the next generation, will only come out of us, coming from a place of rest, and a knowing what we know that we know.  It will not come from a place that we have not experienced, or that we have not walked in, but there will be a flowing to this next generation.  We will become the “Word made flesh to them!”  The Lord said, we will come out of a position of rest….

~ Overwhelmed ~

Some of you have been so busy in the ministry that you have felt overwhelmed and almost to a place of not having anything left to give out.  Don’t fight against what God has been doing in your life to get you to stop and refuel.  Some of you have even had what I call a forced rest to get you to refocus on Him and drink Him in and be refilled.  He has called you to this, but many have not recognized it…

~ “I Am Just Saying … Chill!” ~

The Lord says “I am saying to you just chill out and let Me minister to you once again!

Let Me fill you to capacity again!  Return to the peace that I gave you in the beginning.  Focus on Me and Me alone because I want to minister to you so that you will be able to be restored and then you will pour out of this overflow to the younger generation!  I have greater works for you to do in these last days and you can only do that as you rest in My Love!  Come My Love and rest at My feet…”

~ God is beginning to Show you your New Assignments and Positions for the Next Season ~

In this dream also, God laid out His new assignment and position that I would be walking in.  For many of you, God will be doing a quick download of what your next assignment will be.  He will narrow it down, so to speak and pinpoint it, even in a dream as He did me.

Take notes, because He then will fill in the spaces in-between with strategies for how to accomplish this…  Get ready to come out of this rest with power and great anointing! Amen!!

New Assignments and Positions for the Next Season — 6 Comments

  1. Glory be to the Father! Praise Our Lord! Praise our Savior and Our King!!!! May The Lord Continue to bless His Ministry through Christ in you dear sister in Christ Jesus!! Praise Jesus!!

  2. The past few days in my prayer time(Interceeding) the Lord has been showing me a vision, every time I look down at myself He shows me myself drenched in Blood.. He says that it’s the blood of The Lamb Christ Jesus

  3. I got here from The call of the bride site. It seems a lot of people posting there believe in a very close rapture (maybe this year?) But from your blog I have the impression it’s not the case as you seem to be writing for a longer time period? E.g. earlier the message for the new year, or now this about the new generation. I am confused about how the belief and prophethic words from some people about a close rapture can be reconciled with other prophecies that speak for a longer timeline (months or years from now)? They can’t all be right? :(

    • Dear Luz,
      Thank you for your comment.
      We do not believe in a pre-tribulation rapture and see it as a lie of Satan so that the Christians will not fight him when the tribulation comes.
      This view is based on experience.  In the past, the Churches of China and Japan were wiped out because they were not taught to stand against persecution.  The Japanese Church has never recovered.  The Church in China is now growing massively: and the more they are persecuted – the more they grow, because recently, the underground Church leaders started to teach about resisting and suffering under persecution.  They are prepared to become martyrs if necessary.
      If the rapture comes tomorrow, good and well.  But if it does not come before the start of the tribulation, then I believe that most American Christians are likely to cave in and abandon Christ Jesus, for as 2 Thessalonians says, “Let not anyone deceive you by any means. For that Day shall not come unless there first comes a falling away, and the man of sin shall be revealed, the son of perdition.”
      We would rather teach Christians how to deal with the coming tribulation, than leave them ignorant of it, as Satan wants.  Sadly practically all Pastors, when asked, “What are you doing to prepare your congregation for the coming tribulation?,” will reply, “NOTHING!”
      If you want to read more on the pre-post tribulation rapture question, please see our article “Why it is NOT a Pre-Tribulation Rapture Verse…” by Prophet Ken Dewey.
      I pray this help you and you will prepare for the tribulation, trusting in the Lord.

      Blessings in Christ,

      • Thank you for the reply. Pre-trib is what I have always been the most familiar with and read about, so it’s difficult to change the view but I’m open to other possibilites.
        In that case I’m finding it surprising that the site shares your posts on their page as their position definitely looks like pre trib (plus some other strange stuff added that is different from pretty much every Christian debomination’s view on the end times). I suppose I am reluctant because pre trib is the only view that gives us hope of a soon escape (besides death) and living in the world is becoming more and more difficult with social, moral and economical issues etc.

      • Dear Luz,
        Thank you for your reply.  Yes, it is hard to challenge or change our long held beliefs.
        Remember the WWII Holocaust?  The Lord did not save His chosen people out of it, but used it to give them a homeland again, which otherwise they probably could not have obtained.  If The Lord would not save the Jews from their tribulation, why would He save us from ours?
        Sadly, most Christians take the ritual dogma of their churches without a thought and do not test it, or explore it themselves, with God given common sense.  Asking: Is that really what the Bible says and means….? (I was like that too.)
        I do not want to use scripture to prove any point here, but prayer the Holy Spirit will do that for you, when you ask.  That said, in 1 Thessalonians 4:15 we read “… we who are alive and remain…” and is repeated two lines later in 4:17, “Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air….” This unique phrase occurs only here and I understand it to mean, after tribulation.  Why else would “being alive,” be such an important condition, worthy of such note?
        On the question of Rapture – please do have a read of Pastor Brian Hay’s interesting articles Rapture or No Rapture YOU Decide.”
        I pray Luz that as you diligently seek the Lord, He will reveal these truths to you (Matthew 6:33).  But in all things, remember to TRUST IN THE LORD and lean not on your own understanding :)

        Blessings in Christ,
