Encompassing your Compass
of Spiritual Authority
through Jesus Christ!
Over the past several weeks, many of His Beloved Chosen have sensed a “mandate” to “go away” with Jesus for an unspecified length of time by Him. I sense that an unified step of obedience has been taken by these chosen ones, as they individually surrendered to His call, plan and purpose for this season and “went away”.
Once they had separated themselves from distraction, they pressed in closer than ever before… as they had been deeply longing to see HIS face, know His heart, rest in Him, worship at His feet and learn of spiritual strategies for the upcoming seasons that He has been speaking to them about.
Though this time away brought forth glorious waves of refreshment, sweet rest, elevation, revelation, detoxification and a degree of clarity… it has also been very perplexing to His chosen; as this time away also appeared to bring forth and churn a mixed sea of contradictions with many ‘sneaker’ waves that brought about a complete navigational failure, where many have felt tossed in an agitating sea, surrounded by clouds, caught in an undertow, bruised and battered from the intense waves… and left with a deep fatigue; seemingly surrounded by a a dark sky that appeared as though there was no hope for a tomorrow… although this impression went against every belief and truth that they had embraced, breathed and stood upon, as we know God is not the author of confusion,and HE is a GOD of HOPE, a GOD of DIRECTION, a GOD of PURPOSE, a GOD of LOVE.
While in His presence, I was given a vision; I saw a very small wooden boat. This boat was taking on all kinds of water and the waves that were raging against it appeared as intense and large as those of a tsunamis. The boat was spinning in circles and the wood of the boat was beginning to creak and snap from the pressure that was hitting it. The occupant of the boat had stopped using any form of natural or scientific navigation equipment… as it was rendered completely useless.
I saw a man, who before boarding this boat, had been given a “mandate”
to “go away” with Jesus out upon the waters. The chosen occupant had obediently surrendered all (to his knowing), and took nothing with him, except heavy fishing nets and a heart that loved and truly wanted to see, hear and serve the Lord.
He had longed for time alone with the Lord and now he found himself in the midst of a tumultuous sea, encircled by storms asking, “Jesus, How could this be? We had moved from the shores of safety to the depths of deep waters to rest, soak, dive, harvest and spend time with one another. Now “I” am surrounded by intense, battering wind and water!”
The occupant was wet, cold, bruised and weary from both; fighting the storm and allowing the storm to dictate what it was to carry and where and how the boat would take him. As an enormous wave was just about ready to barrel over and upon the boat… I saw the occupant begin to bend over, to hide and shield himself from what was about to hit. Winds of deception and temptation of a “distorted surrender” came to the ear and mind of the boat occupant. “All “I” have left to do is surrender, raise the white flag, give up… bow to the storm in defeat, agree to return to the “past” shore, let the storm take me and destroy me if it chooses…. because this is just too much… “I” am breaking under this pressure!”
In the “suddenly” moment of everything appearing and feeling as if “vision” had been lost… no horizon or relief in sight, with the tremendous tsunami wave ready to crash over and capsize this occupant and boat… I heard the Lord say;
“Speak to the storms with My commanding authority and cast your nets where it defies logic. To do so will bring a harvest in the most unconventional way for all that you need! For I AM alive within you! You are not an ‘occupant’ of the ‘vessel’ You are My vessel. And with My authority that is within you. You are the admiral of the vessel, a navigator and participator in and of me! Chosen one.
I have called you deeper, higher and have elevated you from the common ranks, there is to be no more thought of ‘I’ singularly, for we are one, you and I. You are to command My presence and understand the authority that you have in me through My son, Jesus! With My authority you are to command, navigate and protect your vessel.
In this past season, I called you far out onto the water – to a place where the horizons have been constantly changing. This time was not necessarily about getting out of the boat to ‘walk on water’, but rather it has been a time of melding together, just you and I – as you FULLY SURRENDERED TO ME and MY PURPOSE.
A time for navigational relation and revelation. A time for complete inner healing and a time for you to grasp US as ONE and the spiritual authority that is yours within that. It is also a time in which I have been giving you strategies upon MY map for territories (natural and spiritual) in which you are to go, to a place where the bounty will astound you as you creatively cast your nets where it defies logic!
You said, yes, when I asked if you would surrender all to where I was taking you. You surrendered what you saw and knew. But I have known things that must be revealed and healed in this now. These things have been hidden deep in your inner most parts, far from your spiritual eyes and memory because they have left imprints and fingerprints that have caused you great hurt and deep pain, yet the heart has muscle memory. And this memory must now be in complete alignment with MY TRUTH, and I call you healed from anything and everything that would hinder your right to MY AUTHORITY.
Oh, MY Beloved Chosen One, you have done well and I love you so complete and so tenderly – to the degree that I chose to use this time alone with you, under the MY mandate that you chose to accept. I have used it to pull back the layers from the past – these things that I have been uncovering have felt very uncomfortable, you have felt exposed, but I AM your source of cover and protection and it is necessary to open these areas up so that your inner healing is complete and I can seal the completion with a kiss.
What will come forth will be revelation and liberating freedom that you have never known. I have also used these storms that have raged around you, the pressure and precious time together not only for your healing. But to teach you about taking your destined, rightful place as one of MY officers and how to navigate and hear my voice no matter the intensity of the storm.
Yes, it has been a time with waves of splendor, healing and strategies – while encountering waves and storms brought on by the enemy, intended to keep you caught in perpetual barrel wave, circling round and round, exhausting you to the point of a surrender of deception; but I AM a GOOD GOD. I AM the eye above and in the middle of the storm, the compass and peace that passes all understanding, and I have used what was meant for your harm to do a marvelous perfect work in you!
This season of COMPLETE inner healing and surrender – you will become so light that your buoyancy will be undeniable – you will not drown no matter what storm is forecast or threatens you, for you have COMPLETE VICTORY and you will float to higher places far above these storms!
JOY without measure will be in the NEW HORIZONS that are just ahead of you! You are not alone – together as ONE ‘WE’ will navigate the vessel – for it has much to pour out.
The chips, cracks and holes are being healed, they are gone, I see you complete and as the vessel you were created to be. You are whole and in this day I call you to stand UP and SPEAK WITH MY COMMANDING SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY, THE AUTHORITY YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN THROUGH JESUS. SPEAK IT FORTH, DECLARE and PROCLAIM. SPEAK THE MANDATE in MY SON JESUS NAME! NEW HORIZONS ARE JUST BEFORE YOU MY CHOSEN VESSEL!”
I then saw the calm, directive hand of obedient participation take the nets with great authority from the vessel and cast them creatively in the areas of strategy that were being given by the Father in HIS perfect timing. Navigation through spiritual authority in belief, speech and presence chartered the vessel in the direction of NEW HORIZONS.
The raging sea, wind and rains from the blackened sky became peacefully still; while a vibrant hope became visible and real in living technicolor as the colors of creativity burst forth with songs of joyful victory, and the destinations of NEW HORIZONS echoed in harmony the same joy filled song – and together they will marry together, while your vessel will pour out and be filled continuously without any seeping from the past cracks, holes or chips – the HOLY conception has already taken place, as it breathes and gestates inside of you, for your destiny was chosen long before you were formed in your Mother’s womb.
Birth of HIS plan for you in this season is on the HORIZON, what a GLORIOUS SEASON OF TIME that we have been chosen for!
These past storms – they will have all been worth it to see, participate and partake of HIS rainbow of promises dancing in and over us and upon shores of every land!!
Our God is all knowing, the invitation through HIS mandate for you this past season was divinely orchestrated by HIM, even using the storms of Satan that were meant to imitate surrender and to distract you from the necessary TRUE surrender, inner healing, breakthrough and seeing your NEW HORIZONS, the place of DESTINY that the Lord has CREATED and destined for you.
Stay the course guided by HIS SPIRIT with is your compass and use your spiritual authority through JESUS to speak to the storms. Listen closely – as HE is speaking and giving strategies to HIS chosen, those FULLY surrendered in this hour. What HE is giving defies logic, as HE is a creative GOD, the creator of HEAVEN and EARTH – of you and of me.
Participate in HIM and see that HE will answer you in the most unconventional way! For HE is the CREATOR and Satan is a mere imitator, full of distortion. Oh but JESUS. .JESUS, HIS name is POWER! GLORY, GLORY, GLORY NEW HORIZONS are being seen – and the DISCOVERY of what is upon these horizons radiates GLORY, the tears of JOY and amazement will be HIS perfected waves that wash over you, filling you FULL, and OVERFLOWING of PROMISE, BLESSING. UNCEASING KINGDOM ABUNDANCE, as you are HIS vessel – and you will POUR out upon and into those NEW HORIZONS!
WAVES of GLORY ARE SETTING UP, they are RISING. Get ready for HIS waves of GLORY; for through this past season of surrender and inner healing. HE can NOW fill you, and you will be able to FULLY CONTAIN and STEWARD that which HIS waves are bringing.
Creative miracles…we are entering a season of creative miracles – you are one of them, just look at the creative miracle HE has performed in you in this past season. Now you can encompass spiritual authority through Jesus – and go and heal the sick and raise the dead and your nets will harvest many souls -.as well as provision for the vision!
Waves and waves of HIS GLORY. HALLELUJAH and AMEN!
