Whatever your condition is, there is a position in the Holy of Holies that has been intended for your presence all along.
It can be a secret hideout where no one knows where you are.
It can be a place in your home where it seems like you are alone.
It can even be a place within you that has been the seat of His throne within your heart and mind, where your conscious walk has been in tune for His Voice and His leading, aware that the LORD could speak, or show you something that is Manna-Rhema, a “suddenly known” Word of the LORD,that strikes you in your spirit.
There have been many times in my life, in my walk with the LORD where a vision suddenly flashes within my mind in the Spirit.
The Gazelle & The Lion
Like the vision of the gazelle, bounding along a set of raised railroad tracks coursing through the browned, drought stricken high grasses in the Serengeti in Africa.
The gazelle is bounding along the high tracks while a lion is chasing along at the base of the elevated tracks. The lion would try to get up upon the tracks to attack the gazelle but would tumble back down, get up again and continue its chase.
But the gazelle would keep gaining ground every time the lion fell, In spite of how vulnerable the gazelle is on its own, it has the advantage because of the slippery slope the lion tried to climb.
As the scripture says in Isaiah,
“It is called the way of holiness….. and no lion will be able to climb up there… therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and there will be singing unto Zion, an everlasting joy shall be upon their heads.
They shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.”
The Word of the LORD came alive.. Manna-Rhema; The Word That Is Sent.
Another vision in the Spirit showed me walking through a field toward an opening in a hedgerow, into a field of ripe, golden wheat.
Amber Waves of Grain
The ocean was in the background behind the wheat field. A gentle breeze was blowing across the field creating waves across the top of the ripened wheat.
Just as the waves in the wheat are created by the wind, the wind also creates the waves on the ocean.
The wheat represents the Word Of God that has been preparing to be harvested in due time.
“If a prophet has a dream, let him tell the dream. If he has My Word, let him speak My Word faithfully; what is the chaff to the wheat”
“For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the Glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”
The wind represents the Holy Spirit.
As in Genesis, “the Spirit of the LORD brooded over the face of the waters.”
In this verse it is referring to the Word of The LORD being incubated, caused to come to fulfillment.
The Spirit of the LORD is causing the Word That Is Sent into your life to come to fulfillment, for you have been made complete in Christ Jesus.
For He Who has begun this good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.
The LORD is causing the Word that He sent to be incubated within your spirit and your mind, to cause the harvest that He wants.
“Christ in you, the hope of Glory.”
“I send forth My Word, it will not return to Me cancelled out. It will accomplish the purpose for which I have sent it.”
In Ezekiel 1:4, the word “Amber” is used to describe the Glory of God.
“And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.”
Come into the Holy of Holies!
