The Lord walked by my bed in an encounter and I called out after Him, “Lord what is happening?”
He answered, “Follow me and find out.”
Suddenly I was following Him clothed in my tunic and sandals and I was running to keep up with Him. He was walking very determinedly down a path that eventually opened to a very steep green grassy hillside with a lake at the bottom. He sat down and I watched Him surveying the scene below Him. I sat down beside Him waiting to see what would happen.
Then I looked around and felt the breeze blowing on my skin but there was no sound at all. The sun was shining and the sky was blue. The Lord remained focused and was scanning the shoreline below. I asked, “What are you looking for Lord?”
He replied, “Come and see.”
Then He got up and started walking down the steep hillside so fast that I struggled to scramble down to follow Him. He was very surefooted on this hillside!
As I neared the bottom, I paused and looked out and was in such awe of this lake because it was huge now compared to how small it looked from on top of the hillside. The waters were so clear, and calm, and it looked very inviting to me. The Lord stood by the shoreline ahead of me waiting for me to catch up to Him. I finally finished descending and came near and stood by Him and He looked at me with a serious expression on His face. He stretched out His hand towards the water and then walked out into the water and stood in it.
Then I saw Him open His mouth and release a sound that I could not describe. It was not a roar, nor a whistle, nor a shout, but it was so powerful, that as He was sounding out, the water began to vibrate in circles. As I watched in fascination, the sound increased and the circles increased until they created ripples and those ripples got bigger and bigger until small waves formed and went out. The Lord kept standing there sounding out until the waves got so big they were hitting him but still He stood.
I also noticed that the sound was creating ripples or sound waves in the air. I felt them spreading outwards and with each wave the vibrations were carrying the sounds everywhere. I watched the Lord as He continued and then, I saw Him stop sounding. He seemed to be satisfied because He walked out of the water and went to the shore and then climbed a little way up the hill and sat down to see what would happen next. Curious, I followed Him and sat by Him.
It didn’t take long, for I soon saw a group of sheep come over the hillside to descend downwards to where we were sitting and went past us to the lake below. They were looking around for the source of the sound. Then I saw other animals also come in response to the sound, including deer, rabbits, ducks, birds, foxes, and even a little bear. They came one by one or in small groups in answer to the Lord’s call. It was fascinating to see His creation responding to Him. I saw the Lord watching them and patiently looking around to see if any more would come.
After a few minutes, He looked at me and said, “Sue, where are My men? Why do they not hear My call and let go of what they are doing to gather unto Me? My voice has gone out to all, and yet so few have ears to hear, and the overall response is still too small. It is not a time to store up supplies only for yourself, but it is a time to gather unto Me and to see what I want to do globally. I have a supply that cannot run dry, yet many of My own are still in fear that they look to men to supply them this year.”
“Look at the animals, they understand. They come when I call and are secure through it all. If you are still distracted by the shaking in the natural, then you will not hear My voice nor understand My plans, and you will not gather under My command. It is not by your faith in man that you will stand, it is by your faith and in your obedience to Me. My voice has gone out, My sound has been uttered, and still men complain and continually mutter, but where is their rudder?”
“There is going to be a response to come as the work of My bigger waves now come. My waves are going to grow and My winds are going to blow, because I want man to know the clear way in which they can now go. I am looking for those who will bow their knees not to men but unto Me. I am calling to My Harvesters, My Gatherers, and My People to quickly arise! Shake off everything that robs you from seeing with your eyes and from hearing with your ears, obey Me and quickly mobilize! Watch, for the coming storms from the skies and the churning of the seas! I will do as I please, and I will have My men who will obey Me!”
Again, the Lord looked at me and said, “Sue, where are My men? I am ready to begin!”
With that, I was out of the vision…
May we all hear His call and may we submit unto Him and mobilize before Him in this season!
Job 37:1 Indeed, [at His thunderings] my heart also trembles and leaps out of its place. 2 Hear, oh, hear the roar of His voice and the sound of rumbling that goes out of His mouth! 3 Under the whole heaven He lets it loose, and His lightning to the ends of the earth.
Hosea 11: 9 I will not execute the fierceness of My anger; I will not bring back Ephraim to nothing or again destroy him. For I am God and not man, the Holy One in the midst of you, and I will not come in wrath or enter into the city. 10 They shall walk after the Lord, Who will roar like a lion; He Himself will roar and [His] sons shall come trembling and eagerly from the west. 11 They shall come trembling but hurriedly like a bird out of Egypt and like a dove out of the land of Assyria, and I will cause them to dwell in their houses, says the Lord.
James 3: 3 If we set bits in the horses’ mouths to make them obey us, we can turn their whole bodies about. 4 Likewise, look at the ships: though they are so great and are driven by rough winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the impulse of the helmsman determines.
Matthew 6:25 Therefore I tell you, stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life?
John 10: 15 Even as [truly as] the Father knows Me and I also know the Father—and I am giving My [very own] life and laying it down on behalf of the sheep. 16 And I have other sheep [beside these] that are not of this fold. I must bring and impel those also; and they will listen to My voice and heed My call, and so there will be [they will become] one flock under one Shepherd.
