“Warriors of the Fourth Watch, proclaiming the Dawn of a NEW DAY”
I saw a Believer in ‘jail’. It was a jail only in their mind. It was a prison of “fear and intense emotional pain and suffering.” It was their “soul’s midnight.”
And I saw a clock striking 3:00 A.M. It was the beginning of the “Fourth Watch” It is no longer midnight, Beloved! It is time to BREAK OUT of that jail, sisters and brothers.
Like Paul and Silas, singing at midnight, and the angel came to BREAK THEM OUT, so it shall be for you! Father has need of you! Let not your heart be troubled.
The Spirit of God shall deliver you as you look to Jesus. The Morning Watch of the Third Day has come. You are a Child of the Day and not the Night, a Watchman of the Dawn of a NEW DAY.
“Beloved. Do not allow FEAR to hold you captive. As My Word says, “Let the Morning Star arise in your heart.”
Heed the prophetic word as a Light that shines in a dark place. I have not given you a spirit of fear but of Power, Love and a Sound Mind.
The Bright and Morning Star is shining in the darkness of this present world. The Day of The LORD is approaching like a thief in the night.
The Sun of Righteousness is arising with healing in His Wings. As I came to the disciples in the Fourth Watch of the Night, so I come to you, Beloved.
There is no night season where I AM. Even the darkness is not dark to Me. I AM the Light of the world. I AM shining into your heart with the knowledge of the Glory of your God. You are a Child of the Day and not of the night.
As it is written, “I Jesus have sent Mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I AM the Root and the Offspring of David, and the Bright and Morning Star.”
The Bride and the Spirit cry, “COME.” Let this revelation of the Dawn of a New Day arise in your heart, for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy. Be encouraged, My Watchman and cry forth “Salvation has come!”
Be the Voice of Encouragement and Truth. Send forth the “Invitations” to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. For by Grace, the Bride has made herself ready.
The Night is almost over, Dear One, a New day is dawning. The night is far spent, the Day is at hand.
Therefore cast off the works of darkness (fear) and put on the armor of Light. It is the time of the Morning Watch.
Awaken the Sleepers, Oh My Warrior of the Fourth Watch! Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.”
The Dark Night of the Soul: A phrase referring to a period of intense emotional pain and suffering, turmoil in ones life and soul searching; A desolate low point in existence.

“Now when evening came, the boat was in the middle of the sea; and He was alone on the land. Then He saw them straining at rowing, for the wind was against them. Now about the FOURTH WATCH of the night. He came to them, walking on the sea, and would have passed them by. And when they saw Him walking on the sea, they supposed it was a ghost, and cried out; for they all saw Him and were troubled. But IMMEDIATELY He talked with them and said to them, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.” Then He went up into the boat to them, and the wind ceased. And they were greatly amazed in themselves beyond measure, and marveled,”Mark 6:47-51.
“But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing,”1 Thessalonians 5:4-11.

Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy,” Romans 13:11-13.
“For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us,” 2 Corinthians 4:6-7.
