This morning as I spent time with the Lord, I asked the Lord if there was a word for His people today. I was given several short visions.
First, I saw a small square house in the mountains. There was lots of snow on the ground, but very little on the top of the house. Smoke was rising from the fireplace and the whole scene was so peaceful. I felt the deep shalom of the Lord on this Shabbat. I asked for wisdom to understand. This entire vision had to do with the Lord’s provision for His people in this season. It was as if a covering was over the house to keep it from accumulating too much snow which would endanger the roof. Psalm 121 came into my spirit. I recommend you meditate on the entire psalm. This part was very strong: “I will lift up my eyes to the hills—from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.”
My attention was suddenly drawn to the distant horizon. The Lord was standing next to me and I heard Him decree: “Gathering shadows are moving this way!”
There was a sense of foreboding about this decree, but at the same time I continued to feel His Shalom Glory all around me. Then I understood that the gathering shadows are coming to the people who do not belong to the Lord in this season. I felt a strong and urgent call for the Lord’s people to reach out to the lost and bring them into the loving protection of the Lord.
I began to see great spiritual warfare around the world and knew that most people do not know how to deal with it. I heard the Lord saying, “The secret sins of many more people will be exposed in this season of gathering shadows. Many more will fall from their positions of authority and respect. This will be especially strong for people with great pride.”
Remember: “Pride goes before a fall.” Consider this: “A man’s pride will bring him low, but the humble in spirit will retain honor.” (Proverbs 29:23)
The vision shifted again and I was looking at a Christmas tree fully decorated for the season. To my surprise, something began to move under the tree skirt. As I watched, a baby crawled out backward from the tree skirt. This was very strange and I prayed for wisdom. The Lord is about to release another great awakening for His people. A powerful move of the Spirit will come as a surprise to those who see it and it will open up a powerful new move of faith in Yeshua ha Messiach. It will be unexpected and unusual, therefore many will miss it.
I don’t want to miss out on any move of the Lord. I place a claim on the promise of Yeshua: “But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear; for assuredly, I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.” (Matthew 13:16-17)
I am praying for great spiritual discernment for you and for me that we will quickly see and get into agreement with every authentic move of the Lord. Amen?
