As I was praying a few days ago, I saw a funny thing appear as a flash vision. The Lord often grabs my attention with silly things that have a significant message attached. If you have kids or grand-kids or, if you are a young person, no doubt you are familiar with Legos toys. Maybe like me you have been to a Lego Land. (I was at the mini-Lego Land at Mall of America years ago). So, what I saw in the flash vision was the Lego Land arch and distinctive logo, only it said “Letgo Land.” I was standing in front the red, white, green, black, yellow, and blue arch. In the quick vision I turned and walked into Letgo Land. That was it.
Since that flash vision the Lord has been speaking to me about, guess what? Yup, letting go. The impacting part of His simple instruction to me is that in letting go there is power and freedom. Holy Spirit is leading us to this place of great peace, joy and freedom beyond what we have now. Surrender of this ilk to the Lord produces the most powerful intercession available on earth. So powerful our whole life becomes intercession, just like Jesus. In fact, His primary goal right now (no doubt from the beginning of our walk with Him) is to help us to learn how to surrender everything, absolutely everything, to Him.
As we enter into the Fall seasonal change there is always a spiritual seasonal change that coincides. The atmosphere changes as the Fall Feasts of the Lord take place. Holy Spirit first talked to me about this particular feast season way back in September of 2009. He told me at that time that we were about to enter a decade where the entire body of Christ would make a turn. The turn He showed me was profound. In it the body of Christ was facing the wrong way (it was a head with a body on backwards). The Head (Jesus) was looking at Father God. The body was facing the opposite direction reaching out toward the world. As I watched, the body slowly turned away from the world and selfish-land until it joined the Head in looking at our God and Him alone. He spoke to me way back then that in 2020 we would have 20/20 vision of who He is and who we are in Him. He said the years 2010 to 2020 were destined to be a decade of awakening and transformation.
Holy Spirit brought back His 2009 word to me during this time for two reasons. First, we are getting very close to 2020 and the Jewish New Year 5780 (a major new beginning year) was launched at sundown on October 1st. And, also on a personal note, because life has been increasingly difficult for me for about five years now. This past month was overwhelming, so I pressed in to find out why. He spoke to me that it’s not only me experiencing increasing challenges. We are making “the turn”, it is going to be dramatic, and that is why life has gotten so topsy turvy and “yo-yo” like for so many of us. This power packed “awakening turn” is fueled by the partnership of surrender to God and letting go of everything…really, everything. That is hard to do, even frightening, because it means laying down all aspects of ourselves and our lives at His feet. It means we stop looking at those things and look at Him, denying ourselves. And, that we pick up our cross and follow after Him (Matt 16:24-26). It means not loving our lives even to the death, because life itself belongs to Him. (Rev 12:11)
Good News in this process is that the more we let go the quicker we will make the turn toward Him and all He has for us. The more we hang on and the more we are rooted the world, the challenges we will experience until we finally let go.
He is using the difficult things happening right now to teach us trust. The pressure to trust Him is on so that we will let go and make the turn even afraid. This process of turning is going to birth a spectacular group of intercessors unlike any we have ever seen in our lifetime. I believe thousands and thousands of intercessors and leaders are being prepared for this and we are about to, not only sense the shift, but to be some of the first to make the turn, if we will let go. The result of this contrite and humble decision of our heart will enable us to stand in the gap between life and death for our families, friends, neighborhoods, our ministries, our cities, states and nations as we pray the will of God (Numbers 16:47-48). The intercession will be exceptionally productive because we see Him so clearly and hear Him so clearly that everything we pray is within His perfect will and according to His perfect word.
When we step into “Letgo Land” we will experience such tremendous gain in our Lord it is indescribable. As my Pastor recently shared during a conference call with his intercessors, our God daily loads us with His benefits and we possess Covenant Blessings! These are supernatural promises that we have barely begun to walk in. The Lord wants us to have His BEST! Thus, our job in Letgo Land is to unload all our junk and receive those heavenly holy awesome benefits and blessings instead of the misery and challenges. In that place the Lord Himself will build up our house with His multi-colored, multi-dimensional building blocks. Everything He builds in us will stand for eternity. In that place long awaited answers will pour out of heaven and newly inspired intercession will be responded to with immediacy because we are so accurately praying the heart of God.
My time concluded with the Lord in the words “Do not fear, trust Me.” (Isaiah 41:13) He is the Lord that takes hold of our right hand and says to us “I will help you.” Personally, I want to live in Letgo Land and step into that amazing place of His benefits and the resulting love drenched power for the sake of those that need Him. After all everything we go through is really not about us. It is about those whom the Lord places in our lives that need Him. Haven’t quite figured out how to live fully in that place yet, but that is the wonder of a prophetic word or vision. If we receive it, believe it, and ask for it to be fulfilled, He will help us to become it and live it!
Blessing you all this Fall Feast season with ten-fold new beginnings. See you in Letgo Land!
with JOY in our Lord,
