DECEMBER 15, 2021 12:04 PM MY HIDING PLACE
On Dec.13/2021, while spending time with the Lord in our secret place, the Holy Spirit directed me to pray for His army. He said it’s ‘Inspection Time’. The Holy Spirit is doing an inspection on His army to verify that they’re under the blood of Jesus, wearing the full armour of God, prayed up, focused, with hands and feet ready for battle, knowing their positions and how to take down the kingdom of darkness.
After my prayer I heard the Lord calling out to me and telling me to GO. When I asked Him ‘where to’, He gave me this Rhema word:
"It is time to march out; to go take over new territories. A shaking. A shaking. It is time! Take your position! Armour up (pick up your weapons of war)! It is time! Time to march, time to conquer, time to bind, time to set free. To open doors and to close doors. To give back the sight to the blind, to set the captives free. It is time! March! March my children. My Spirit will lead you. Are you ready to march out to battle? Are you ready to go out to conquer? It’s going to be easy. I’ve already made the way for you. All you have to do is obey; follow my lead. Come now, take my hand and learn from me. Take my yoke upon you; it’ll be lighter for your journey. Together we’ll do this. Come, follow me closely. It is dark out. You must follow me closely so you won’t separate and get lost. I know the way; I’ll light the path ahead of you. I’ll hem you in on all sides. Together we’ll do this. Together we will build and tear down. You’ll see. It is time now. Buckle up! Let’s go! Do not be afraid. I’ve got you. Just follow my lead, I’ve got you. Danger. Danger outside. Many dangers are lurking in the night –the pestilence, the wild beasts of the night."
The above came with a vision. I saw Jesus standing directly in front of me, dressed in a cloak with a hood over his head. I saw darkness all around as if it was night time. I could hear His calm yet firm voice with every instruction especially when He said to follow Him closely. He went ahead of me lighting the way in the night. I didn’t see anything/anybody else but I could feel dangers hidden in the darkness. I feel that that’s why He repeatedly warned me to remain close to Him.
Additional impressions: I was alone with Him representing that I had left everything behind to follow Him. This goes for all of us: we must leave the world behind, deny it, die to ourselves to follow Jesus. Our road ahead is not going to be easy unless we perfectly obey the Lord’s instructions. It’ll take a lot of dedication, a true commitment. We must know how to distinguish His voice so we can fully trust it and obey it. We got to train for it during a relatively easy season. Soon, the real test will begin as we get to pursue His commands through a darker season without fear, nor doubt. We’ve got to know with 100% certainty that He’s got our backs and He will not lead us astray. We’ve got to be ready to jump when He says, ‘Jump’. At times, our immediate obedience may be a matter of life and death and therefore we may not be granted the luxury of more time to ask questions. We’ve got to trust Him as if we’re walking on a tight rope with a blindfold on. Jesus says, ‘my sheep know my voice.’
We must be pure, holy, consecrated, dedicated, focused and committed. We must know the Word; we must have it inscribed on our hearts and know what the Father requires from each of us. Sometimes it may mean that we’re going against the grain, against what everyone else is doing. But do not be discouraged. The Lord will keep us in the palm of His hand.
Words Holy Spirit spoke: COMMITMENT FAITHFULNESS CONSECRATION DEDICATION
Be aware of the foxes around you. They’re out to try to destroy your vineyard -what you have been building with the Lord. Take this to the Lord in prayer and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you your particular ‘foxes’ around you and how He may want you to handle them. Take every precaution to defend your position in the kingdom so no one will take your crown.
*My family has actually witnessed foxes on our street on 3 different occasions lately, which is very unusual for us as we live in the city. This was definitely a sign.
Holy Spirit said, FOCUS LISTEN ATTENTIVELY
For those who are going the wrong direction: STOP! Turn around, NOW!
Mark 8:36, ‘What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?’
The fear of the UNKNOWN has a grip on many who are finding it hard to completely let go and fall into the Lord’s hands. Help us, O God, to follow you no matter the cost.
On Dec.14/2021, the Holy Spirit wanted me to read over the story regarding Abraham’s test. When I read the following verses, the Holy Spirit dropped an impression into my Spirit.
Gen.22:9-10 When they arrived at the place God had designated, Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood. He bound his son Isaac and placed him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son.
God had spoken to Abraham and had asked him to offer his son Isaac -the son of the promise- as a burnt sacrifice. Abraham trusted that the voice he heard was indeed the voice of the Lord and made all the necessary preparations to fulfill the command given. We must have the same trust in the Lord’s voice that Abraham had. WOW! Here comes the true testing of our FAITH. Will we be able to trust Father’s words the way Abraham did? Are we sold out for Jesus?
Prov.3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Our eyes, our ears and our hearts must be focused on the Master because if we stop to look at the ‘storm’, if we stop to look to our right or to our left, we will begin to drown just like Peter when he tried walking on waters. Do not ask the Lord to remove the storm, your trials/tests/afflictions, but rather to help you remain focused through them and to grant you His grace to overcome.
Jam.1:2-3, 12, 22 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
Heb.10:35-39 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
Psa.23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Dear beloved, I just want to encourage you to seek the face of Lord through fasting and incessant prayer. Pray over this Word as well, that you may receive clarity and understanding. May His name be forever praised on earth, as it is in heaven. Hallelujah!
