Today I heard this phrase, “The Great Awakening,” and I saw the Bride of Christ suddenly awake and come to her senses.
She had been lulled to sleep by the droning lies of the enemy and the pain and sorrow he caused.
She sat up, wiped the sleep out of her eyes and rose up to stand confidently and boldly and she was Glorious!
Her weakness had left her, her strength was renewed and she had a Glorious Sword at her side.
She was so tall, she reached into the 2nd heaven where Satan and his cohorts dwell.
The Bride was now wide awake and the demons were fleeing from the Presence of Yahweh, Yeshua, in her.
And as I contemplated this Vision, I also thought of the story of Rip Van Winkle, and laughed and said, “Lord, why was I shown this?”
He said look at the number of years he slept. I t was 20! TWENTY: (20) is twice ten and can mean a complete or PERFECT WAITING PERIOD. (Biblestudy)
Wow! TWENTY is the number of REDEMPTION! (Biblical Mathematics)
“Although the times are dark, Beloved, do not forget who you are. Awake, awake Oh Sleeper!
Arise and Shine in My Glorious Light! For lo, the winter has passed, the flowers have appeared in the land, the Sound of the Dove is heard and the time of singing is here.
It is time to come out of hibernation, My Child. I have strengthened you and spoken with you and revealed things to you in this waiting period. Now is the Perfect Time and the Perfect Day. It is the Time of the Bride arising!
Let the Redeemed of The LORD say so! It is NOT too late, Dear One, but you are just in time. The path of the Just is as the shining light, that shines more and more unto the Perfect Day.
Arise, shine, for your Light has come, and the glory of The LORD rises upon you. For behold, darkness covers the earth, and thick darkness is over the peoples; but The LORD rises upon you, and My Glory will appear over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your Dawn.
Awake, awake, put on strength, O Arm of The LORD; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. You are My Arms, and My Hands, and My Feet, and My Voice in this world today.
Am I not He who has cut Rahab, and pierced the fleeing dragon? Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over ALL of the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means harm you.
Awake, My Bride! The day is dawning! You are armed with My Glorious Sword, the Word of God, and equipped with the Weapons of My Holy Arsenal.
For the weapons of your warfare are not carnal but mighty in your God for pulling down strongholds.
Cast down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of your God! Bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ!
Your veil has been removed, Beloved. For whenever anyone turns to The LORD, the veil is taken away.
You are no longer blind, but now you SEE! You are wide awake, My Warrior! You have My Spirit within you.
Now The LORD is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of The LORD is, there is FREEDOM!
Fear not! You are kept by the power of your God through faith unto salvation and you are ready to be revealed in the last time!
Greatly rejoice, My Bride, though for a season you were in heaviness through many hardships. The trial of your faith was more precious than gold though it was tried with fire.
I declare to you today that you shall never perish but you shall LIVE and not die and declare the glorious Works of The LORD!
For Jesus Christ, whom having not seen, you love; in Whom you believe, shall now restore to you the years the enemy has stolen and you shall rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory!
Blessed are you, My Warrior Bride! Who is like you, a people saved by The LORD?
I AM your Shield and Helper and your Glorious Sword.
Your enemies will cower before you, and you will tread on their heights!
Awaken, My Beloved. I AM reviving you! Ride forth on the Winds of the Spirit!
The term second heaven is in reference to Satan’s domain and anything that comes from there. Satan being “the prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2:2) and demons being “the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12) (gotquestions) 2 Corinthians 12:2 talks about a man who was caught up in the third heaven. Logic dictates that if there is a third heaven, there is a heaven one and two. The third heaven in Scripture is where God Almighty rules and reigns over the universe with His holy angels. (John Hagee)
Strong’s Hebrew 7294: Rahab = ‘breadth’ 1) storm, arrogance ; the name of an enemy; bluster, the proud one

“I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of it I do not know, but God knows. And I know that this man—whether in the body or out of it I do not know, but God knows —” 2 Corinthians 12:2-3.
“But when anything is exposed by the Light, it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:13-16.
“I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of The LORD.” Psalm 118:17.
“But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” Proverbs 4:18.

For behold, darkness covers the earth, and thick darkness is over the peoples; but The LORD will rise upon you, and His glory will appear over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” Isaiah 60:1-3.
“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:” 2 Peter 1:19.
“My Beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land;” Song of Solomon 2:10-12.
