In a vision, I entered the Heavenly Prayer Room where many of the elders and saints were already present. I walked barefooted over to my place at a small bench where I usually sit with my tablet and pen in my hand. The air was filled with prayer and much incense, and it was so glorious that it was difficult to see clearly.
The voices rising to the Lord were strong and seemed to be reverberating everywhere. There was a notable difference from my usual visits. I could feel the intensity rising in the room. Not an intensity of pressure or travail, but like the air itself was expanding and rising in the room. I put my pen down and waited.
Then I began to see little sparkles in the air (kind of like what sparklers make when we light them on a holiday). In between the haze of the incense and the sound of many ongoing prayers, I saw flashes of light increasing as if the incense itself was exploding. The lights got bigger and even more intense and I sat watching and was mesmerized by its energy. The elders also watched and began to shout. The saints began to clap their hands as if they understood what was happening (of course they did!).
I watched in amazement as the lights then began to spin like diamonds in the air and they began to release strange sounds and move even more erratically. Then the lights flew around in the room and came together into a spinning cluster. At this point, many angels came into the room and stood around the pulsating cluster as if to escort it somewhere. The elders all nodded in agreement. Then the angels flew with the spinning cluster out of the room.
I was so caught up in what was happening that I followed the angels out of the room to see where the cluster of lights went. I saw the lights as they shot out of the prayer realm and stopped in the Presence of the Lord where they hovered as the angels waited. I wondered what they were all waiting for.
Then, suddenly there was a sound from the Throne that I had never heard before as a burst of great energized light erupted from the center of the cluster of the lights. The angels then burst out of the atmosphere with the cluster of lights racing towards the earth. I wondered what was happening and what had been released from the prayer room to the earth?
Then I heard a voice saying to me, “Answered prayer.”
I turned to see it was one of the elders who was with us in the prayer room. He smiled at me and then laughed at my puzzlement. Then he explained:
“There are many factors that go into prayer and into receiving the answers to prayers, to promises, and to your prophecies. But the most important key right now for you all is to understand the process of Gods timing for them. There is a timing for every seed that is sown. There is a timing for every word that has been uttered from the Lord’s mouth. There is a preparation period in prayer and a gestation period, and a birthing of the manifestation period. You have been given understanding of the whole cycle in this vision. It is not a time on the earth to be afraid, but you are to all to rejoice, for your Father knows what is written concerning all of you, and His preparations for you are deliberate in your gestation and birthing periods and are now coming into a season of manifestation.”
“Stay in agreement with His Words and with His Spirit and with each other as it all unfolds as He has intended it to, and allow His Divine Timing to activate them one by one until the whole process is ready, and when its ready, the cluster of His anointing which is the life within it, will be released to bring the manifestation of that which you have believed for.
The Father of All Lights has entered your fight and He is well prepared. There are many surprises waiting for each of you. The angels know what to do because it is all written in His Book. Rejoice in His great care for each of you. It is time to behold the working of His well-planned Grand Design. You have seen the sign and you all are right on time.”
19 And the angel replied to him, I am Gabriel. I stand in the [very] presence of God, and I have been sent to talk to you and to bring you this good news.
20 Now behold, you will be and will continue to be silent and not able to speak till the day when these things take place, because you have not believed what I told you; but my words are of a kind which will be fulfilled in the appointed and proper time.
For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.
For as [surely as] the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring forth, so [surely] the Lord God will cause rightness and justice and praise to spring forth before all the nations [through the self-fulfilling power of His word].
O Lord, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will praise Your name, for You have done wonderful things, even purposes planned of old [and fulfilled] in faithfulness and truth.
For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].
Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
Every good gift and every perfect (free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].
