On March 7th I had a most wonderful prophetic dream adventure with the Lord. While the dream has MUCH to say and was fairly lengthy, within the dream came a specific scene and prophetic word that I know I am to share with all of you as encouragement. I will be posting the dream when I am finished with praying through to a more full interpretation. In the mean time, for those of you that have been laboring in the Lord for many years, have been waiting on your dream, vision and destiny that He spoke to you would come to pass, and/or you have experienced what seems like delays and failures… this word is for you!
Excerpt from the dream I call “Emerald” –
I don’t know how we got there but suddenly we were at a picnic-like place in the valley. I had seen this place from the ridge. When I looked around, Emerald was high up the mountain to my left. There were many tables and chairs, but very few people were there. The tables were all white. Most were under white canopies and there were white pennant shaped long banners on poles waving in the breeze. It was lovely.
We were gathered there in the sunshine for quite a while. I remember walking around. But, I don’t remember interacting with anyone.
Finally, one of the planners said “This failed – let’s go talk.” Everyone that attended the event, including me, sat down at a long white table in the sunshine. I remember that because sitting in the direct sun was wonderful and I am a shade seeker.
I listened to the group talking for a time. They were discussing their failure and wondering what went wrong. Then, while I wondered what I was doing there with everyone, the Lord spoke to me very clearly.
He said: There is man’s timing and there is My timing. This event was planned in man’s timing. A Page is about to be turned in My Book and when the Page is turned, My Plan will come to pass as it is My Timing. Fret no longer over what you perceive as failures. It was not yet time! You have been sowing into your destiny. When the Page turns, everything you do will succeed in Me!
I stood up and told the group of this message from the Lord. Several turned to me and said: Who are you? They were angry. A couple of them got up and hugged me and said: Thank you! The leader, the young man with glasses and sandy brown hair, I had seen before, and a young thin Hispanic man both said: Listen to her. We see this event was done in our own strength and timing. None the less, it is good seed for our future. Now, we will wait on our God.
After they said that, all of us hugged one another.
This scene came in the middle of the dream. I am sure you are curious about Emerald and how the dream ends. I will share that soon. The most important part right now are the words of the Lord. He is about to turn a page. It fact, I am certain that the shaking and stirring going on in the world is because He has lifted the corner of the page in His book. When He actually turns the page, life will change completely for all of us.
We are in a time of preparation for that change right now. It is a season of training and discipline. So many leaders and long time intercessors are reporting they are in a season that is very challenging. Both difficult things and wonderful things are happening at the same time. The difficult things at times are overwhelming and for some it has slowed them down or stopped them completely from ministry. But it is all in the Father’s hands. We are in a place of being purified in the valley (white banners & canopies) and purged of leaven of this world (read Purging Revival). Those who are willing have been practicing planning sessions with God, waiting on Him, and sowing into what they will be doing in the new season to come. Though the results have not always been what we hoped, nothing that we have done is wasted or a failure in Christ Jesus. No, it has all been training, even our mistakes. His Bride WILL BE READY for the turning of His Page!
Be encouraged and get excited. The Father has HUGE wonderful amazing plans for His sons and daughters. Truly, no matter how good He has been in our lives, we ain’t seen nothin’ yet! There is much more goodness to come!!!
Watch for the posting of Emerald on this blog
Call to Fast for 21 days
We have also called for a time of fasting from April 1st at sundown to April 21st at sundown. Passover on the Jewish calendar begins at sundown on April 22nd. That marks the beginning of Yah’s (God’s) spiritual New Year. He is telling me it is VITAL that we humble ourselves through fasting before Passover. So, we will be fasting 21 days. Click here to go to information on the fast. I will posting on our facebook page prayers and encouragement during the fast.
