A scene from the latest Wonder Woman (2017) movie has been playing over and over in my mind the past few weeks. In one of the scenes when Wonder Woman is being ‘trained’, there is an instruction given to train her harder than any other, five, ten times harder.
As this scene has continued to play over and over in my mind the last few weeks, I asked the Holy Spirit what He was saying. The Lord then spoke to me, “There are many in the body of Christ that feel like they have been trained harder than ever before. They feel like the ‘training’ was intense previously but then it increased, five, ten times harder than before.”
The Lord then showed me that many in the body of Christ have been walking through intense times, trials, opposition and transition and all of it has one common denominator. It is requiring a new level of faith. It’s requiring the people of God to “come up higher” than ever before. In a dream a few months ago, the Lord spoke clearly to me, “The body of Christ needs to be like eagles, soaring high above the noise and the natural realm and living FROM the realm of the Spirit and from their seated place in Christ.” (Ephesians 2:6)
There has been an increase in the training of faith, an increase in the Lord training His people how to war from the heavenly’s using the Word of God, unshaken, and not moved by natural circumstances. There has been a deep, deep training of faith that’s been taking place where you have no other option but to root and ground yourself deeply in the Word of God and what He says.
The Lord is raising up a strong army whose eyes are fixed upon Jesus and knows where their help comes from (Psalm 121), the Church that walks on the water because their eyes are focused on Jesus and not on the waves, the Church that sees the impossibilities in the natural bow to the name of Jesus Christ, the Church that carries heavenly wisdom and blueprints to see the Kingdom of God established in the earth in greater ways than ever, going forth with their mouths filled with the answers from heaven to the worlds problems to bring redemptive solutions to see nations impacted by the Gospel and the reality of Jesus Christ and His goodness.
YOUR TRAINING HAS NOT BEEN FOR NOTHING, IT’S PREPARING YOU FOR THE NEW ASSIGNMENTS AND FRESH COMMISSIONING UPON YOU
This training by the Holy Spirit has been necessary for what you are going to walk in. What the enemy meant for harm, what circumstances scream in the opposite of your promise, in the midst of it all, God is building your faith muscles. He is awakening you to your identity in Christ. In the wrestle, a DEEP PRUNING has been taking place and you are moving into greater supernatural freedom than you have ever known. Many of you have felt like in the Holy Spirit boot camp training you weren’t going to survive, but the Lord is actually delivering you from things that have HELD YOU BACK and is strengthening your faith muscles, your character, and a deep purification is taking place so you can move into new assignments and a fresh commissioning.
Many of you have been chased into a corner by fear and other levels of intimidation by the enemy and he has used circumstances to keep you caged, but you are now rising up and awakening to living from the heavenly reality of your seat in Christ and now you will go forth and destroy the works of darkness like never before as the Kingdom of God is extended through your life.
There is a MIGHTY SHIFT that’s taking place and a fresh commissioning is happening upon many. God is opening NEW SCROLLS before you which have new assignments on them and you will step into them with greater strength, purity of heart, empowerment of the Spirit and demonstrations of His power like never before.
A DEEP FORTIFYING INTO HIS TRUTH AND MATURING OF THE SAINTS IS TAKING PLACE
The Lord spoke to me that in the deep training of how to live a life of faith that is taking place there is a deep fortifying into His truth and maturing that is taking place. God is fortifying His people in the TRUTH of the Word of God like never before. He is exposing lies, roots, wrong foundations and cracks in the lives of His people where there has not been an accurate revelation of His truth that has taken root. God is uprooting things that are opposing the truth of His Word and the revelation of His truth is blossoming forth. The Lord is maturing the saints in many ways. God is separating His people from the carnal. He is establishing the revelation of His truth of who He is, His Word and the identity of His people like never before. God is training His people how to live as overcomers and walk in great faith which attracts His power.
The intense training that has been and is taking place in the spirit is for your good and so you can go forth into a manifestation of your destiny that you have not walked in before. God is having you eat scrolls of His truth that is changing the story of your life thus far and birthing and catapulting you into new assignments you have never dreamed of.
NEW ASSIGNMENTS TO GO INTO NATIONS AND REVEAL AND MEND CRACKS IN FOUNDATIONS
The Lord kept highlighting, “NEW ASSIGNMENTS TO GO INTO NATIONS”. When I asked the Lord about it, I saw avenues and doors opening up into nations with significant acceleration. These new assignments took on different forms. For some, it looked like “feet on the ground” in nations. For others, it was entering into nations through social media, the Internet and the media realm (television etc). For others, it looked like manuscripts/books being written, songs being written and sung. For others, it looked like connecting with people from other nations, ministering to them, praying for them and as they then go back to that nation, they carry an impartation received from the Holy Spirit as those prayers and ministry to them releases a shift into that nation. I heard the Holy Spirit say, “I am increasing nations upon the heart of man.”
“Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession.” (Psalm 2:8 NLT)
“Ask me to give you the nations and I will do it, and they shall become your legacy. Your domain will stretch to the ends of the earth. (Psalm 2:8 TPT)
God is preparing the body of Christ and the earth for the greatest harvest we have ever seen and in the MATURING and TRAINING of faith, He is raising up His people to GOVERN through their prayers, through their decrees, through walking in obedience to Him, through the assignments He is releasing to see the Kingdom of God and the Glory of God revealed in the nations.
The Lord showed me that in these new assignments to “go into nations”, the Spirit of God is revealing and mending cracks in foundations of nations. Through these new assignments, God is doing an even deeper work in revealing what is in foundations of nations, where the cracks are, and releasing His people to move with His Spirit in so many different ways to bring shift and healing to those cracks in explosive demonstrations like we have never seen before. The Holy Spirit whispered again, “EXPECT TO SEE THESE CRACKS REVEALED MORE AND MORE AND HAVE AN EVEN GREATER EXPECTATION TO SEE THEM HEALED AND MY GLORY REVEALED”.
Things will shake and tremble in the revealing of the cracks in nations, but greater shall be the shaking that will take place as My Glory is revealed and the demonstration of My power and the power of My Gospel in the earth.
Can you hear the sound of the cooing of doves? It’s harvest time for you and for the nations.
“I hear the cooing of doves in our land, filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth. Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, “There is change in the air.” (Song of Songs 2:12-13 – TPT)
