Now is The Time All of Creation is Waiting For

garden_eden

On January 17 2016, I awoke from a dream with such a strong presence of the Holy Spirit and a crushing burden for the church.

My dream was about an evangelist that kept pleading with the people, “Do not grieve the Holy Spirit! Do not grieve Him!”

There was more to the dream, but those words lingered in the air as I awoke. The burden was so crushing and the feeling that the Lord was grieving poured through my being. In prayer He began showing me the church is a sleeping giant that needs to be awakened! It has to be poked and prodded. If it doesn’t awaken, then persecution MUST come. There is no other way.

These words flowed out from me and I have been pressed to share them with you. There are so many Christians that resist more of God and want to keep quiet about their faith. They have been taught the Holy Spirit is automatically received when one gives their life to Christ, so they don’t realize there is so much more God wants to do in us and through us. It is only by listening to His Spirit and obeying Him that we can achieve what we are destined to do. Each one of us needs to get in our quiet place and devour the Word and seek His face!

Wake Up Sleeping Giant! Arise Church! Arise! Our Savior comes for a spotless bride, without sin, without compromise.

Wake up, sleeping giant! Dust off our rags and put on a robe of pure white. It is time to consecrate ourselves and repent! Receive the Holy Spirit – the Comforter, Teacher, Protector, and Helper. Without Him we have no power to do the things we will be commissioned to do. If we ignore and resist Him, our assignment will be given to another, so that God’s will can be accomplished.

Do not grieve Him! He is our friend. He wants to teach us the ways of God and reveal the truths of the Father to us. Our clothes are scarlet, oh Church! We have compromised and are found wanting. There is no reward for the stubborn and proud. Rebellion is as witchcraft in His eyes and our pride will only cause us to fall. The Lord cannot be used as a toy to be played with whenever we feel like, then tossed aside at our whim. He is not a magician, only there to perform miracles when we want to show off or when we are in need of one. He is not our servant either, to be ordered around to do our bidding, to fix our problems and provide our needs.

Wake up sleeping giant! The Lord of Hosts is returning! And we are not ready. He weeps at our attitudes. For if the church, the one He placed Himself on the cross for, is not willing to acknowledge Him before the world, He will not acknowledge us before the Father. Many are called, but few are chosen because He knocks on the door of every heart and wants to reside there. He wants to empower us with His Holy Spirit.

Now is the time all creation is waiting for, the revealing of the sons of God.

For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. (Romans 8:19)

The creation is waiting for us to stand up! Wake up! Put on the armor of God, for we are called to fight now. Fight for truth to be heard in our family, in our community, in our city, in our country and in the world. We are called to be warriors of the King!

We must prepare ourselves and dwell in the Word. Let it give us knowledge and power. We will need it to fight the enemy. Without it we will be conquered. With it we will be conquerors, for that is what the Lord of Heaven’s armies will make us.

So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you. (Revelation 3:3)

1 “Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
2 “For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you.
3 “Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. (Isaiah 60:1-3)

Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lamp stand out of its place—unless you repent. (Revelation 2:5)

Hiedi, This reminds me of TD Jakes sermon I heard today. Here’s the link. I listened to the last half. Well worth the time.
http://tphechurch.org/sunday-feb-14-2016-sparring-partner/

The main ones that spoke to me are:
1. When a thorn is given to us and not taken away, it is so we notice our reaction to the thorn.
2. Our reaction is the thing that God wants us to pay attention to.
3.The thorn is a distraction, not the actual problem.
4. He has sent it into our lives to give us discipline and exercise in fighting the reaction it produces.
5. God is using this b/c the Lord is sending you to a place where you need to be humble and broken before Him.
6. God is releasing grace , to anchor, stregthen you, it is greater than what is aching in your heart.

Align yourself with Heaven
Align yourself with the cross
Align yourself with My will, says the Lord
And I will make your way straight before you.

I know the plans
I have for you, says the Lord
Plans to make you prosper and succeed
Just give your hearts to Me
And I will fill them
With joy and My blessings abundantly

Arise, My church, arise!
Fullfill your destiny
Arise and align
Yourselves in Me.

A few weeks ago at work I was, for some unknown reason, unbelievably tired for the entire day. In fact I could easily have fallen asleep at my desk. That night, on my way home, I drove over some concrete which projects into the road at a pedestrian crossing. (The front wheel was at ninety degrees and the car needed towing.) Normally I am very careful against being super-spiritual but I am aware that sometimes God can speak to us through events in our lives and I was wondering (a few weeks ago) if God was saying to me through this that the church (myself included) is asleep at the wheel and that is heading for a crash unless it wakes up. Anyway, just a thought.

Already been doing this in my group of friends. Just feel we are to expand to the ministry at large. The elders are a little resistant to what they have witnessed with casting out of demons LOL but it is time.

On my way up the mountain last night, I was praying, asking God for last great outpouring in Joel 2. Last night I dreamed that it was my turn to preach the next Sunday and I instantly knew that I was to teach on the command in Luke 10 to the 70 and praying for the sick, casting out demons and signs and wonders. ( Our elders do all the preaching, I would not be giving the message) But I will introduce this to the elders, so that the church will also be praying for this release of Holy Spirit and Manifestation of the power of God in our body. And that we need to be praying for our sick and oppressed now in faith with laying on of hands.

Vicki, Holy boldness! It’s what we all need and can be empowered with! I had to get up at 1:30 a.m. Last night to pray and beseech the Lord for this outpouring, beginning in my very own family and relatives. Praise God for your boldness as you go out in faith! Let His light shine!

RH, Thank you for your honesty! I myself have just found a body of believers who truly only want a deeper walk in the Spirit. Keep praying that He places you into an intimate group of believers who have the same desire to grow. The Lord gave me a mental image of something the other morning. I saw a live picture of 3 gears, all different in shape but all fitting together so perfectly, even though they all had different shapes. They worked very smoothly together and it was impressed upon me that the more gears that came together to join this cluster, the more powerful it would be. How perfect for showing us that we work together in a stronger and more powerful way when we all are working for the same thing- to become a powerful and mighty force for the Kingdom of God!

Heidi B- You’re welcome. Thank you for writing this affirming response and sharing this vision of the gears. It is a beautiful and powerful image. Yes, I will “keep praying that He places (me) into an intimate group of believers who have the same desire to grow” in the Spirit. “Seek and ye shall find”. Peace and thank you again.

I believe in the body of Christ, but it seems harder and harder to find Christians who are awake. Trying to talk about the End Times, spiritual and physical preparation falls on deaf ears so much of the time. Few sense the urgency of the hour. So many Christians seem to already have their agendas, programs, existing ways to serve, in light of their thinking the future will be like the present.

Christianity is not a club or a corporation. In the last 24 hours the Lord reassured me that it is “OK”: He appreciates what I am doing to serve Him, even if I am “alone” in regard to local fellowship. He said to keep enduring and trusting, and that when the time was right He would bring people who would appreciate who I am in God and His purposes for me and them in these Last Hours. I am grateful for everyone’s honest comments here, and am grateful for internet fellowship and encouragement.

I am sensing from the Holy Spirit to trust Him more that He will be knitting the body of Christ together in His time and way.

I can confirm unity is coming to the righteous remnant, and it will be awesome fellowship like we have never experienced before. I have been seeing this in dreams. I believe God wants us to know these current trials are temporary. Better days are coming soon so hang in there!

James- Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words. I am believing for better and will definitely continue to “hang in there”! It’s an encouragement to know you’re having dreams about such great fellowship and unity. Thanks again.

Diana P, I felt inclined to click on your name and came across your blog. Love your dream “A Glimpse of Glory”! It should be published here! This is what we will do and how wonderful that you could experience it in a real way. No longer one great evangelist, but each of us used in our own unique way! God is giving me such a compassion for people in the street that I normally wouldn’t have looked twice at. May our faith be so increased that we can be like Peter and say Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have give I thee. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk”! And like you saw, we don’t need to worry so much about stocking up on food as much as building our faith by digging in the Word. His Word will rise up from within us as it has been planted there, and will come forth at the right time to do powerful and mighty works.

Whether you’re taken in the Rapture or stay behind. You’ll need to be able to recognize Me in My variety of movements. I love variety, I love fun, I love to be close to you. I love to show My human side to you. After all, that is one reason I incarnated on this Earth, to reveal the Love of the Father to you. “Get accustomed to finding Me in ways you never expected. Go deeper in your discernment. Take the time to stretch your thinking and definitely rebuke a Religious Spirit, because that’s what’s behind your difficulties in discerning Me. I don’t fit in the box… and neither should you. I’ve called you to be Mine, exclusively – not the byproduct of some religious denomination or non-denomination. I created you to be unique and an individual. Don’t allow yourself to be crammed into someone’s comfort zone. Grow into who you are, no matter how unconventional and out-of-the-box it may seem to you. If you feel the fire in your heart, pursue it. Don’t allow the enemy to water you down with someone else’s boundaries, guidelines and agenda for your life. Take the collar off your neck and break free of that Pharisee leash. “I have come that you may have life, and LIFE ABUNDANTLY in the Spirit. But, it will never happen if you’re living someone else’s vision of who you are. You need the courage to discern for yourself. Swim against the current and cleave to My Spirit, above all else. He is the only One that should be setting your guidelines and boundaries, in a fresh and exciting way, without the musty old murmurings of a crowd that died a long time ago and gave up their dreams to protect their future. section of heart dwellers, the… Read more »

Marilee, Love it! “Don’t be crammed into a box of someone else’s comfort zone.” God has also been saying that if we just keep on getting filled with His Spirit until we are full, and we don’t pour it out to those around us, we become like the Pharisees who were hearers of the Word and not doers. And we know what Jesus thought of the Pharisees! …Heart dwellers, amen!
