Over these weeks of being “locked in,” I had a number of encounters with the Lord, and have been seeking Him for wisdom and revelation. I heard Him say, “My sequestered ones will be bold as lions released from their caves!”
During this sequestering, I had two visions of angelic activity indicating what is happening in the spirit, and a significant dream providing revelation and strategy for the war we are in.
THE HOST OF THE LORD IS READY AND WAITING
In the first, I saw our nation surrounded by the Host of the Lord. I immediately heard, “They are positioned to battle on behalf of My people. You need not fear; do as you hear; My angels are assigned and always near. Speak My words and they will make it known that I am seated on the throne.”
I was immediately filled with confidence, knowing that as we obey the leading of the Lord, angels on assignment respond to do His word!
“Bless the LORD, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word. Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, You ministers of His, who do His pleasure.” (Ps. 103:20-21 NKJV)
Lord God, release an opening of spiritual eyes to those You are calling to the battle, to see the angelic host that are in position and waiting (2 Kings 6:16-17)!
ANGELS SWEEPING AND THRESHING
In another vision, it was very dark and I saw angels sweeping a floor. As they swept, I heard the words “sweeping, threshing, sweeping, threshing” continually. Then I saw other angels carrying torches and whispering to people that were bowed down on the floor. I asked the Lord what this meant. The Spirit of the Lord revealed that I was seeing the angels sweeping the chaff from the threshing floor to be burned (Matt. 3:12); the others were whispering words of encouragement to those pressing into all that is necessary to come forth shining in His glory (Heb. 1:13-14)!
Be encouraged, people of God, and continue to press in and allow the Spirit of God to reveal to you all that hinders from the fullness of His Presence in your lives! Embrace the threshing floor and allow it all to be removed as worthless chaff! It will all be swept away and the angels of the Lord will minister grace and encouragement to your soul. You will come forth as gold tried by fire, radiating the glory of the Lord that will draw others to Him and set them free!
“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.” (1 John 3:2-3 KJV)
MIKVAH – PURIFIED AND TRANSFORMED INTO VESSELS OF GLORY!
During Passover week, I heard the Spirit of God whisper a strange word to me – “Mikvah.” In fact, I heard it twice one morning and once again in the afternoon, so I knew He was stressing the importance and looked it up. According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, Mikvah is a ritual bath or bathing place for purification in accordance with Jewish law. The Hebrew word means collection; as in collection of waters. Two instances for its use was prior to weddings and at times of spiritual transition. When Jesus was baptized by John, it was a Mikvah; from that place He transitioned into His public ministry.
The Holy Spirit reminded me of the first miracle Jesus did, turning water to wine at a wedding feast (John 2). He used water pots that were set apart for use in purification – mikvahs! As in the threshing vision, Holy Spirit was emphasizing to me the necessity of pure vessels for the Kingdom to come forth as God has purposed. Jesus began a new era as He came forth into His ministry and manifested His glory. We have entered a new era; it is time to manifest His glory!
This is a new day, a new era; as the master of the wedding feast was astonished that the best wine was saved for last, so will masters of the world system be astonished as the people of God come forth as vessels of new wine. From this time of sequestering and cleansing, pure vessels will be overflowing with the best wine – that of clean, fresh, living water from a life set apart in the presence of the Lord! This will be “new wine” of the transformed kind – the treasure found in earthen vessels that will reveal the glory of God and the greatest move of God ever seen.
THE MOUNT OF THE LORD
During this time I also had a powerful and life-changing dream. I was looking out over a landscape of mountains. There was one mountain range that was a vibrant, deep purple. I was drawn to it; I felt a deep and compelling desire to go there. It was irresistible! In the next scene, I was on a jagged-peaked mountain near the purple range, in what looked like a tourist ride of open air train cars going around the mountain.
As my car neared the purple mountain, I was desperate for a better look and tried to take a picture so I could capture it. The vehicle kept moving and I could not get the picture or see it in fullness. I began to feel frantic, anxious; I somehow knew that this was of great importance. We turned the corner; now I was seeing the other side of the range. There were remnants of ancient ruins and carvings in the mountain. As the car kept moving, I was weeping; my desire to stay was almost overwhelming.
In the next scene, I was in a large lobby where many were gathered. It seemed it was a conference or ministry event, and I knew the people. I tried to describe the mountain’s beauty to someone and wept inconsolably at my inability to find words to describe the beauty. Then it became the radiant glory of the Lord. I was completely overcome and wept even more, for His beauty was far beyond the beauty of the mountain – it was impossible to describe. I was praying in tongues yet even that wasn’t enough to express what was in me. I woke up, with tears on my face. As I shared the dream with my husband, I began weeping again at my inability to describe the beauty and the glory of the Lord.
I believe the Lord revealed these things to share with you that there is a place of desperation for His presence and beauty that must be the culmination of our desire. In our quest for fulfillment of His calling in our lives, even our deep desire to see the realization of God-given dreams, all this must pale in comparison to the desire for His presence. Manifestation of His Kingdom to the earth must come from His presence; glory carriers transformed by beholding Him!
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (2 Cor. 3:18, NKJV)
I was so taken by the beauty of the mountain that I saw – it seemed so real; I was compelled to find out if it was real. I did some research and found that it was Mount Hermon. In Strong’s concordance, Hermon means sanctuary. Many have been drawn into a deep place of sanctuary during this sequestered time. I found that on Mount Hermon there are ancient ruins from temples of worship of Baal in Canaanite times as well as that of Pan in the Greek/Roman times.
Caesarea Philippi was a Roman city located at the foot of Mt. Hermon. This was where Jesus took His disciples and Peter received revelation and declared that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God (Matt. 16:13). According to BibleHistory.com, it was where a cave was located believed by pagans to be the gate to the underworld, and where pagan worship of Baal and Pan took place. In fact, Caesarea Philippi in Canaanite times was Baal-Gad and Baal-Hermon, then renamed Paneas, and also was where Jeroboam, the first King of Israel, led the northern Kingdom of Israel into idolatry!
Yet, THIS is where Moses defeated King Og of Bashan, the last representation of the giants of Rephaim (Deut. 3:3, 11; Num. 21:33). THIS is where Jesus declared that the gates of hell would not prevail against the Church and gave the keys of the kingdom to His disciples; the authority to bind and loose (Matt. 16:18-19)! According to the book of Enoch, Mount Hermon was where the fallen angels first touched the earth when they were cast out of heaven! (Biblehistory.com). THIS (many Bible scholars believe) is where Jesus revealed Himself transfigured in glory to Peter, James and John!
PAN INFILTRATION NO MORE!
I believe there has been an unleashing of evil from the demonic realm, and it is infiltrating further with the onslaught of “pan” words into the atmosphere during this year and decade of Pey (the mouth). I felt the Spirit of the Lord emphasizing strongly that these words must be rendered null and void. According to ancient.eu, Pan was one of the many gods worshiped in the Greek/Roman culture. He was a satyr (half man, half goat) and worshiped for fertility, sex, lust and bestiality. He was known for playing tricks on people for amusement, using his musical pipes to entice.
Merriam-Webster Dictionary notes that Pan possessed a stentorian voice – his shout was so overwhelming that it instilled fear in his opponents, eventually causing his victory. It is time for the Body of Christ to release OUR sound – the sound of the Truth that Jesus has triumphed over hell and death, victorious over any demonic forces set on destruction!
We decree no more pandemic, panic or pandemonium! We declare the power of those words null and void. We bind up and break in pieces the power of the tricksters’ words and decree people be loosed from them in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We decree that the Almighty God’s words will not return void; they will bring to fruition all that He has purposed in the earth! Jesus will receive the nations for His inheritance. We bind up and break off the spirit of fear, and decree soundness of mind and bold faith to rise up! No longer will stentorian voices of terror bring panic or any other harbinger of evil “p” words – we declare the Power of the Most High to rule in affairs of the earth and every spirit of confusion be bound. We loose peace, health, life and victory, in the Mighty Name of Yeshua.
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” (Isaiah 54:17 KJV)
There are new assignments that will be given in the days to come; emboldened ones will come forth, led by the Spirit of the Living God. Many are coming out of this place of sequestering, of intimacy with the Lord, with His heart and His Holy boldness, moving forward in full confidence that as He was with Moses and Joshua (and countless others), so He will be with us (Deut. 31:6)! Receive Holy Boldness! The host of the Lord is ready and waiting to hear the command of the word of the Lord that He gives His people! I declare to you that we are coming out of this time with the boldness of lions. Having been with the Righteous One; we are embued with power and will overturn the works of the devourer!
“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1 KJV)
“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.” (Acts 4:13 KJV)
I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, “Look up, look up! Lift up your eyes and realize I am life, I am light; turn to Me and receive new sight. Only looking to Me will you perceive aright. Turn from the darkness and walk in the light. There is no need to live in fright. Look to me; stay in the light and you will ascend with me to new heights.”
If there was every a time where you have a blank slate to live from, this is it. Forge new paths. There is no quarantine of the spiritual realm…ever.
“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” (Daniel 11:32 KJV)
