Do we believe that God is about to do something? Or has hope deferred made our heart sick? If we think we are to receive nothing from the Lord, then we will most certainly not open our mouth wide for Him to fill it.
So much has fallen to the ground and died in the last 7 years. It has been a brutal season of purifying seven times for the Word of Promise held in our hearts.
Hosea 2:14 describes the Lord leading His Beloved into a wilderness place, which He later identifies as the Valley of Trouble. He declares He will turn it into a door of Hope and restoration will abound. This is a bridal passage, written with tender love-filled words by a Bridegroom who has had to deal with all the false lovers His Bride has gone after, destroying them by His righteous judgments. He wants her heart to be fully His. Beloved, if you are still loving and worshipping God after all that has assailed you in this refining season, then your heart is His. You can safely say, “My Beloved is Mine AND I AM HIS!”
I had a short dream this week, in which I went to the postbox and it was jam-packed with envelopes all addressed to me. I opened the first one and it contained smallish grey rectangular pieces of fabric, which reminded me of the academic colors badge I received for getting seven A’s in senior school many years ago. This was sewn on my school blazer so everywhere I went, it would be obvious I had passed with excellence. The envelope contained hundreds of them.
I opened the next envelope and it contained many slips with people’s final exam results on them. They all showed that the owners were qualified to graduate. Suddenly, I realized I was supposed to announce to people that they had passed the test, and not only that, but they had excelled! So if you are feeling like there is a delay in manifestation because you have failed the test, it is a lie from the pit designed to rob you of your hope. The season of testing and proving is over. YOU HAVE PASSED!
Graduation time is here and you are about to receive honor and glory in proportion to the period of suffering you have endured. Much that you have considered lost or stolen will be restored. God’s resurrection power is about to be released powerfully. He is going to breathe on the surface of your heart and flames that have died down so much that you considered them part of your past, are going to suddenly be ignited, spring to life and burn with passion and fervor.
One thing about graduation ceremonies is that everyone has to be seated before it begins. Take your seat with an expectant heart and know you are going to receive good from the Lord’s hand. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. If your heart has grown disillusioned and feels dead and lifeless from the extent of the trial, know that the present state of your heart does not deter God. You have earned your stripes and the Father is about to bestow upon you an outpouring that remains, just like when Jesus was baptized by John and the Spirit in the form of a dove remained upon Him. God is declaring over you, “You are My Beloved son in whom I am well pleased.”(John 1:32).
An outpouring that remains means a waterfall that doesn’t stop pouring, continual connection to the source of power and life and no more desert days…
On the 10th January 2018, I had a short dream of a treasure chest being lifted out of the ocean with ropes and there was a pirate standing on it. As it rose into the air, I heard a song, “15 men on a dead man’s chest. I won’t beg, steal or borrow.”
When I woke up I knew things that had been stolen and lost so deep on the floor of the ocean that they had been hidden for many years, would suddenly come to light and be restored. I researched the origin of the words of the song and discovered that each line came from a different song. When I queried this, the Lord said, “It’s a new song. I can do that you know!”
The new song speaks of something lost being found, of treasure being unveiled and seeing as it was a dead man’s chest, obviously whatever was inside will be inherited by someone who is alive. So there is a sudden unveiling of inheritances that we didn’t know existed, both spiritually and in the natural. Heaven has been looking into the DNA of rightful inheritance and the results are about to be brought to light. Even those who consider themselves eunuchs will receive an inheritance:
3 Let not the foreigner who has joined himself to the Lord say, The Lord will surely separate me from His people. And let not the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.
4 For thus says the Lord: “To the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths and choose the things which please Me and hold firmly My covenant.
5 To them I will give in My house and within My walls a memorial and a name better [and more enduring] than sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name that will not be cut off.” (Isaiah 56:3-5)
A name given by the Lord carries authority and power. It indicates that person has been marked by the Lord for change and heavenly download and impartation. Jezebel always had eunuchs to serve her and many of God’s children have been rendered incapable of being fruitful through Jezebel’s schemes. BUT God is the resurrection and the life and you may feel like a dry tree now, but the resurrection breath of God is coming and you will be transformed into a fruitful tree. I believe the inheritance being brought to light in 2018 will also deal with debt and lack in any area, as the second line of the Lord’s new song indicates.
A few days after this dream, I discovered that the initials DMC, (Dead Man’s Chest from the song), were actually the name of a cryptocurrency coin, DynamicCoin. I looked up its performance and its value was round $0.002. Now, ‘dynamic’ means ‘full of energy, life and activity’ and comes from the greek word ‘dunamus’ which means ‘power’. The Lord indicated that this cryptocurrency coin was a prophetic type of the state of many people’s lives, having a name of being alive but in fact being just about dead. Within was an inheritance which was unable to be accessed – in effect, a dead man’s chest. It could be full of gold coins and jewels but locked up at the bottom of the ocean, it was not of any use. I knew I had seen that dead man’s chest raised up out of the sea and brought to light, so I wondered whether this coin would increase in value as a prophetic sign of the season we are in.
Exactly one month after the chest dream, on 10th February, the Lord began emphasising the double portion inheritance that the first-born receives and indicated I should check up on the DMC coin. I was amazed as the graph line began to move in an almost vertical fashion that day. In total, the DMC coin increased 178% in one day, having shown no signs of life before (or since). The dead man’s chest was indeed being raised to the surface before my eyes. I knew it would take resurrection power to effect such a vast change – from death to life! The Spirit of God is about to release resurrection power and unveil lost inheritances. On the 10th February, I also saw certain numbers repeatedly; 4, 8, 44, 88, 444, 888. Once again, there was an emphasis on double.
7 Instead of your [former] shame you shall have a twofold recompense; instead of dishonor and reproach [your people] shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double [what they had forfeited]; everlasting joy shall be theirs.
8 For I the Lord love justice; I hate robbery and wrong with violence or a burnt offering. And I will faithfully give them their recompense in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant or league with them. (Isaiah 61:7-8)
Double recompense is about to be poured out in every area where shame and loss has reigned. In fact, if there is an inheritance locked up because of death, the shame and poverty of widowhood is great as Ruth discovered. An ancient Law had to be exercised to release that inheritance – she had to be wed to the kinsman-redeemer:
Also Ruth the Moabitess, the widow of Mahlon, I have bought to be my wife to restore the name of the dead to his inheritance, that the name of the dead may not be cut off from among his brethren and from the gate of his birthplace. You are witnesses this day. (Ruth 4:10)
Ruth received a double blessing at her wedding to Boaz and Obed, the son born from that union, received an inheritance from both Boaz and his dead father. He received a double portion inheritance. A child born from such circumstances was known as the first-born from among the dead. Jesus was also known by this title:
He also is the Head of [His] body, the church; seeing He is the Beginning, the Firstborn from among the dead, so that He alone in everything and in every respect might occupy the chief place [stand first and be preeminent]. (Colossians 1:18)
There is a company of people who have been in the place of death for a long season, who will now be brought forth from their tombs in resurrection power, in the pattern of the Firstborn from Among the Dead. This will be the hallmark of their lives from this time on, the dynamic life-giving power of God will spill out of their lives continuously as they extend the Kingdom. They will be brought forth with shouts of favor and possessing a double portion inheritance. They have been tested and tried and purified seven times and then chosen as vessels of honor.
2018 marks the beginning of the release of this great outpouring of resurrection power and governmental authority upon those receiving their inheritance. This is the allotted portion of the Bride who has made herself ready. Get positioned and seated with an expectant heart, ready to receive your inheritance in Christ. Remember:
Perceiving precedes Profession
Profession precedes Positioning and
Positioning precedes Provision.
The outpouring is released by the roar of the Lion of Judah over us. 2018 is all about light and sound. Position yourselves to receive the light waves and sound waves coming from the Lion of Judah. They have the power to unlock and heal and restore and invigorate every atom within us. The Lord of Life is here to impart power and life. When Jesus released a sound and His spirit on the cross, the temple curtain tore in two, there was an earthquake and the dead were raised to life.
50 And Jesus cried again with a loud voice and gave up His spirit.
51 And at once the curtain of the sanctuary of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; the earth shook and the rocks were split.
52 The tombs were opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep in death were raised [to life];
53 And coming out of the tombs after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many people. (Matthew 27:50-53)
He is about to release a heavenly sound and impartation of His spirit again, over His faithful ones who are rightly positioned and waiting. It is time.
