~ 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!!
