The interpretation of the visitation for the Fall Season 2013 (taken originally from the Word of the Lord for 2013 part 2) www.Carpenterstouch.org
In December 2012, the Lord gave me an awesome visitation concerning four people that I and a group of my peers were in, we were told to prophesy to these four individuals and that later we would be informed who they were. Surprisingly enough, we found they were not individuals but they were seasons that would be coming forth this year that would occur in 2013. The fall season was described this way, in the visitation.
“Fall — The last one was a man with black curly hair. He had large eyes that turned down at the end and they seem sad. He wore servants/waiter’s clothes with a white shirt and a white towel on his right arm. He was in a beautifully expensive restaurant with golden colored table coverings. He had a tray carrying a wine glass with a clear liquid, a rose and gold plate. When I approached him a woman put a microphone in my face. I begin to talk to him about Israel. The Lord spoke to him about his heart of great humility, his love for Israel, and that his prayers had come up before the Lord. I said to him, “The Lord said I see you, and how you love Israel. These things that you have been done in times past concerning your prayers, and alms are forever before me.” “You have served me with diligence and carried a love for me and for her (Israel). I want you to know I have never forgotten nor do I forget, because the day is coming for your restoration and for her restoration. By this time we are all weeping. For no matter what happens I will a have a time for her, set by my own hand, as I have in your life. He began to sway/stagger and the lady and I held him up. He wept almost uncontrollably. I heard music in the background after the word was released, perhaps it had been going on before that time and I hadn’t realized. (Isaiah 41:8-9).”
The Lord recently spoke to me and said go back to that visitation I wanted to show you something concerning the season that you have entered into, Fall. As I reviewed the words for fall — it begin to speak volumes. In this season the Lord is not only calling his people but He is gathering them. The significance of this gathering* (a proposed event for a specific time) has to do with the purposes for this meeting and the hour that we have entered into. So much is serious and so much is at stake. There will be several things conveyed and other things must be ingested in order for it to take hold of one’s life because there will be rapid changes from here to the end of the year. It will be important to not only know the Lord’s instructions but to understand that they are food for life that will enable us to fully walk in the realms of His glorious anointing that the Lord is looking for us to partake in this time. We will be joined and gathered with Him. The words of God, the power of those words, and the fellowship of the hour is prepared and purposed as the same mission for those with one mind and one heart.
The Lord had me reflect on Luke 14 and the Book of Esther in order to understand a few key things. Many times leading up to a significant occurrence the Lord will point out key scriptures carrying important protocol and principles that will show us things that we will need to consider in order to fully understand what and why He is saying it during a particular time.
Luke 14 banquet — Right before the parable of the great supper is mentioned we see words which could relate to the coming subject. Things to consider prior to the gathering:
1. Verses 7-11 shared about the procedure of how to choose the chief rooms and seating. (My purpose is not to teach the principle only to point them out so that we may search our own hearts accordingly.) That it is better not to presumptuously sit in a seat in the higher room where we might be told we are sitting in someone more honorable man’s seat, but to take a seat in the lowest room. Sitting is usually determined by the host of the event to take a better seat. (We can not to assume who we are in the face of God in light of all who are attending, to do so, could cause us to err.) The wisdom to learn was: Whosoever exalted himself shall be abased and he that humbled himself shall be exalted. This is a time of self-evaluation and a time of assessment. The Lord’s evaluation could result in elevation or demotion. This is a time to humble ourselves and be teachable that we may obtain even greater revelation. Humility not reflecting on who we think is significant but to be quick to hear what the Master thinks concerning our lives. It is also a time of elevation to those who have shown themselves faithful.
2. Verses 12-15 shared about when making a dinner don’t invite your friends, brethren, neither kinsmen, or even rich neighbors but call the poor, the maimed, the lame and the blind. Meaning don’t let the invitation be directed to those we feel worthy of inviting but towards those who need it the most and would appreciate the most, thus having the heart of the Lord. These are patterns of the Lord for this type of gathering because it will be an open invitation without bias. For the greatest blessing of all is to eat bread in the kingdom of our Lord. This reveals to us many of those around us have had very rich opportunities to eat the best that was prepared at the Master’s table and yet not appreciate it for what it was. So when they saw the invitation it was just another invite, not realizing it was a life changing experience for all eternity. “When it was heard by one attending, they said,“ “Blessed is He that shall eat bread in the kingdom.” (someone felt privileged to be included, despite the tests and hardships).
Now the actual parable: The invitation was set.
3. He sent his servant (at suppertime) to tell them — Come for all things are now ready!! (urgency of the hour is at hand) But they came with excuses:
A.) I bought a piece of ground and must go see it—I can’t come.
B.) I bought have bought 5 yoke of oxen and I must prove them—I can’t come
C). I have married a wife and I cannot come.
Who buys land that they have never seen? Who buys yoke of oxen not knowing what condition they were in? Who gets married and refuses to show their new spouse around to such a generous host? (The answer was, they were all with one consent.)
Possible answers for the excuses:
I didn’t respond to the invitation from God on my life right now because of the personal decisions that are now crowding my life and I need to attend to them.
That which is connected to me has hindered/kept me from understanding the importance of the invitation.
I’m tired, so many things where supposed to happen by now and I am battle weary and I’m not coming. (read between the lines).
I really don’t see the importance of attending this thing, can’t come.
Will we be so distracted, disgusted, disappointed, arrogant, too important, that we miss the most important invitation to arrive in the most important season of our lives. According to that event, the invitation they missed out on was the most significant of all. Pray that we do not miss our day of visitation. The Master of the House was angry — (Greek for word angry was oikodespotes [ὀργίζω orgizō] which meant he had been insulted by those who gave excuses. Even in Esther’s pattern we see that Vashti’s refusal to attend brought on serious consequences. There are events that are about to take place that will usher the largest call into the kingdom than we have ever seen. We must make sure we don’t allow our personal distractions to keep us from hearing the sound in the distance. So we need to see the seriousness of the call, as well heeding the invitation from the Host of Heaven. We come when we are called ready, well-suited and prepared.
So in this fall season the place for the gathering was set in order. The order is being set in the kingdom know that as the Father prepares his word to be expressed in that meeting — order also is being required in the house of the Lord. The order of the kingdom will set order in the House. Kingdom participants will see the meeting as a place of beauty, royalty and dignity. We can refuse to partake in that process of order, and we will miss out on those things which are being prepared personally for us in this time.
This season may appear to begin carrying a sad countenance of uncertainty but it holds many precious promises as the Father speaks words of healing and restoration. This hour is given to the servant carrying the servant’s heart. His raiment reflects his heart knowing he is a friend of God and not just a servant. He wore what Jesus wore on a similar occasion being girded with waiter clothes. His approach to those that he attended to was with humility, love and the willingness to care for them that he was waiting on. His garment carried the integrity of his master not carrying false humility but sincerity of heart. We will know about the soul of a man by looking into the heart of a man. His tray carried 3 items, a wine glass filled with the new wine of His presence crystal clear without color. A gold plate that was yet to filled with that which the Father would give to his people to partake, a royal platter suitable for kings. And lastly a rose that first represented love, but also a symbol of beauty that when the wilderness or desert blooms such a one we all will rejoice in its appearance, the glory of the Lord, the majesty of Our God. (Isaiah 35:1-3) It speaks to us, as that which cannot be explained, the miraculous will come forth out of the essence of His presence. We will watch the glorious impossible occur in the stark reality of troubled times with much fear in its grasp. Those who attend will drink from the glasses and be filled. That which has been tried in the fire will be served upon pure gold.
Now let’s look at what the Lord speaks to this season:
(Please refer to the word at the beginning of this note.)
The prophetic word is being magnified (the microphone) so it can be heard, it carried a sound and power. It is important to remember that the Lord was speaking to the season not just a person. I am coming into a new understanding how to approach the season that the Father is speaking to, no matter what I think I lack or have.
Watch Israel in this season, it is the first thing that the Father speaks of. He then begin to speak to the heart of the season, and how will be carried with much humility and how the prayers of this hour are highly significant. The Lord continues to say: I see you Fall 2013, and that you love Israel — now He speaks of prayers, alms are ever before me (like a sweet fragrance). Fall you have served me with diligence — what does a season that serves God look like? How does it bless those who treat the Lord with diligence and love?
What a time of honor and elevation unto His people. He says then this heartfelt promise “I have never forgotten the day for your restoration (ours) and Israel’s (restoration). This will be in time where we will experience the Love of the Father in a deeper realm understanding the hardships, the waiting, the endurance of the hour, and the delay. It worked for us an exceedingly eternal weight of glory not previously understood. (2 Corinthians 4:17) There was weeping — Fall was weeping at the hearing of the Lord’s words. I sense a certain sadness, yet relief, yet tears of joy. The words, “no matter what” meant to me that even in the most extreme circumstances our God would show up in such a powerful unprecedented fashion we would not be denied. When the Lord God Almighty sets a thing by His Own Hand it is so!
Fall began to sway/stagger and the Lady and I held up the season. I believe this is a caution to us not to waver between what the Lord is saying to us and what we see going on around us, even that which is projected to us by news. (I feel the lady represented the media.) We must be sure concerning the words of the Lord for they bring forth the life and the realm of possibilities that are breathed by God when he speaks them. (Isaiah 55:10-11) In weeping I feel that we will experience relief of the pressures that have surrounded us. There will be tears of gratitude for the moving of the Lord upon us his people. Even a sense of unworthiness for the deep love and grace of God has had upon our lives that He would do all that will unveil in this hour. Don’t sway between what God promises us and what we may be going through because it is only the crossway from the path that we walk upon to day and which we are about to experience in His fullest. The worse thing to do is to miss our day of visitation with unbelief and ingratitude. Let’s enter into the place of His gathering that we may receive what He has prepared for us.
No more will we walk into a season and say what we don’t have — the Father has prophesied life into our season that we may enter in and receive great possibilities. We can no longer let our past dictate or determine for us how will we be —- the Lord has breathed New life into the hour that we are in. So therefore we must move forth, breath in, embrace and walk in what He has created for us.
Watch and pray over this hour, over Israel, over our nations, over a people declared for Holiness by the righteousness of the Lord. This is a season that the Father is dealing with the issues of the heart, reconciliation and transformation. A people restored is a people prepared and empowered by the divine nature of the Living God. The prayers prayed in this hour will be directed, heard and answered. So cry out in this hour. Fall I am looking at you and all that I have placed in you to fulfill and bring forward. It will harvest forth his word even in the midst of trouble and great supplication.
To watchman and gatekeepers of the Lord hold your ground for even in the midst of you the Lord shall do great things and a great shaking will cause the enemy to be uncovered and many evil plans will be uprooted. Great change is coming in the midst of a great sweep. Be ready to war at the gate for the new life to enter in now. I heard the words in prayer. “Fire Evangelism.”
There is a pouring out process going on – the pouring out is the bitterness of the soul and now the new wine of His presence is being poured in — more, more, more to overflowing. We will be hearing new songs coming out of the heavens, the worshipers will arise to a new sound coming out of the distance.
“… but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men” Philippians 2:7.
“So when He had washed their feet, taken His garments, and sat down again, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them”“ John 13:12-17.
“… as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God” 1 Peter 2:16.
“For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another” Galatians 5:13.
“Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods” Matthew 24:45-47.
