Precious intercessors – in our area we have been on an exciting adventure in the Lord. He first gave us a prophetic promise of being catapulted into our destiny in Him, then the word “Launch” began to be spoken by prophetic folks around us. After that He gave me instruction to “prepare for the launch.” Now, the word “advance” has started to be released by prophetic intercessors. I believe these messages have been released by Holy Spirit to so that we understand we are in forward motion and not stopped as the enemy would have us believe. We are launched and we are advancing. From my times with the Lord I am convinced that very shortly we will be catapulted into the very things we have been dreaming, hoping, visioning, praying, and laboring for in intercession.
Nonetheless, there is danger. When God is on the move, we must listen for His voice and heed directives in order to complete our mission in Him. The dream I am about to share is something I believe we must glean from and heed its message. It came to me in the very early AM 6-12-14 as direction, loving warning and encouragement. I know that I am not myself in the dream. As a prophetic intercessor, I am representing all of the prophetic intercessors and advancing church.
Here is the dream with some explanation:
I was at a gathering of absolute brilliant light with tens of thousands of others ( I believe this represents the body of Christ). Out of the gathering came many wonderful God directed ideas, solutions, plans, healing, restoration etc. When the gathering ended, people each got into their vehicles, which represents their ministry, and headed out to accomplish the things received for the Lord’s glory. I stood watching and, though they all originally headed out going the direction the Lord showed them, not far down the road they took a wrong turn. One by one they got on a pathway that was headed for a cliff. I tried to run after them to warn them, but I could not help them that way. In the dream, I had to go to the base of the cliff and climb up to the place where they were about to go off the edge and lose everything. So, I went down to the base of the cliff and easily climbed up the mountain of problems. All went well until I got to the craggy opening in the cliff where they were all headed for destruction.
At the opening sat a huge being that I can only describe as looking like Jaba the Hut in the Star Wars movies, a foul ugly slug with a huge mouth. I just about got to the top of the craggy opening when it blocked my path. I tried every way to get around it. Nothing worked. I could see a couple of vehicles go off the cliff and crash at the bottom. I was devastated and desperate to get around this ugly being to help others avoid the cliff.
First, the beast was seductive and tried to lure me into its trap of snakelike ropes. Its face even changed to that of a pleasant smiling man. That made me very ill and I backed up. Thankfully, its plan did not work. I would not step forward into the trap. When it saw that I could not be drawn into its trap, it peppered me with things that hit me and hurt me deeply. I kept trying to get past this beast anyway to help the others. When the pain didn’t work, it said I could not ever get past it because I was like it and could never move forward. Revulsion swept over me as this beast was so vile. How could I be like it? Then I realized it was Leviathan – it was PRIDE. That was why I was like it. I was dealing with pride. In the dream I immediately got low. When I was flattened, I was no longer like it. I easily slid under it and jumped up with great strength, zeal, power, joy, love etc on the other side. It could not stop me!
With a bright blue weapon that supernaturally appeared in my hand, that I believe was intense Intercessory Prayer, every disaster from that point on was diverted. The blue weapon hit the vehicles and they all either stopped or turned back to the path ordained for them. A person got out of their vehicle right on the edge and said to me “How did you do all this? It is amazing that no one got hurt.” I told them how I did it and we wept with joy thanking God for revealing the answer for this season.
So, dear friends and intercessors, after praying and meditating this this AM, the Lord has told me to post the dream for all of you. It is, He tells me, not only for me. We are all about to find ourselves in situations where our PRIDE is an issue. Either there will be an attempt to seduce us into thinking we are just fine the way we are, or we will be brutally assaulted by the enemy through people and situations we least expect. This is in order to block us and stop the advance of our ministry in Christ Jesus.
We must ask Him to deal with all of our areas of wounded pride from the past so we can receive healing. Then ask Him to teach us how to get LOW so we can handle all future challenging situations where our pride may rise up. I am asking Him to flatten us and keep us in a place of humility no matter how much our pride is being wounded or how much we want to take credit for His goodness. When we stay low, the enemy cannot stop us from advancing. In fact, in the dream it was like it could not even see me. In our flattening position the love of Jesus can flow in power.
Believe me, I am not an expert at this. I fail frequently but, I am learning that, when I feel blocked and/or hurt that most of the time, it is pride stopping me from advancing. The simple act of repenting, as much as needed, forgiving and letting go – telling God we cannot do anything with out HIM and His direction – relying on the Holy Spirit, will help us to successfully get past this evil guard. Since people will be used to deliver the “blows” and cause the problems, practice now so you will be responding in the future by immediately forgiving and blessing them as you would want to be blessed. In blessing there is the power of God’s love. Our temptation is to curse them, but that hurts them and us – it makes us weak and we end up defeated. Father God wants us victorious wielding our bright blue weapon of prayer supernaturally defeating the enemy’s plans.
Prepare with love as your breastplate – stay low fellow intercessors and advancing church, the victory is found flat on our face before God.
We will be praying that the advancing church enter into humility and stay LOW during our prayers.
Blessing you with with great JOY and strength! We are about to breakthrough with humility in to His glorious plans!
