Abram's descendant Jacob experienced a desert sleep, which allowed him to see a heavenly stairway that joined the gateway of heaven to an entrance point on earth. The Lord's angelic messengers were ascending and descending upon the ladder delivering the Lord's prophetic declarations and visions to Jacob as he slept.
Things are really starting to pick up in the spirit. I can hear the sounds of horses as they are getting ready to be released from a starting gate. The hooves dancing in place ready to run, their breath hot and heavy with excitement. There is a sense of urgency & anticipation to be released. You have been preparing for this for a very long time. You have been in training for years.
The final push in childbirth is always one of the most difficult because the birthing mother has come to the point of exhaustion and oftentimes struggling with the false perspective that this laborious process is never going to come to an end. That final push takes every bit of strength the mother has, to push that newborn from the hiddenness of within the womb into the natural world of being seen, felt and heard. More often than not, at the onslaught of the final push, the mother feels as if this is an impossible task.
Once upon a time I would to go to prophetic conferences and wish that the "big anointed" preacher would notice me and call me out for a prophetic word from God that would somehow show everyone there exactly how special and anointed that I was. That was supposed to confirm what I already felt on the inside and give me a little more respect in my life from the people around me.
There is a gas station I stop at periodically on my way home where a very angry man works. I'll refer to him as Angry Ninja because in conversation he once told me he practices martial arts. Angry Ninja towers over me and is always wearing a hip, knit beanie. If you walked in right now he would tell you his grievances with little introduction. You've met these people before. They're always prepared, ready to unpack today's dose of "everything sucks" at the first opportunity. Always something different, always negative.
Then he asked me, "Son of man, can these bones become living people again?" "O Sovereign Lord," I replied, "you alone know the answer to that." (Ezekiel 37:3 NLT) Did you know that God is in every area of creation, even in those things that appear lifeless and dead? Just as a physician uses CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) to breathe new life into patients in cardiac arrest, God is always standing by, ready to breathe new life into anything lifeless when we ask. He is there in our spiritual springtime and in the cold, winter months. And He is even closer, hovering nearby in our darkest hours, according to Psalm 34:18 where it says: "The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit."
God's love is amazing! There is no replacement for experiencing the depths of His love for us. His love is where we find our true identity. People search for their own self-worth in so many places, but there is only one place that it is found. When we discover that Jesus paid the price for us so that we can be part of the family of God it changes our perspective on everything. God has the best family!
The Spirit of the Lord gave me a powerful prophetic word for you! The God of the Breakthrough is about to move you forward. It is your season to advance. Every obstacle you are facing is about to be destroyed. It is time for the stubborn resistance to finally be removed! I see the Lord moving upon your health. I see salvation coming to your lost loved ones! Your finances are about to flow freely like water!
During our house of prayer last night I went into a vision where I saw a horse that was running with a large bit in its mouth. This horse was being pulled one way and then another as the rider controlled its movements. Then I saw that the rider upon the back of this horse was a huge demonic looking creature that was in black armor. It sat upon a heavy saddle and pulled the reins with great force upon paths of hardship.
We all have a sphere of Light in that we are required to walk in that has been illuminated by Holy Spirit as God's perfect will for our life, and we are not to try to illumine another's walk by the light God gives us. If one becomes affected by our light because God called them to walk in it that is God's responsibility and not ours. We can never become another man's Holy Spirit. It is our place to walk in love balanced with grace and truth. If our "light" does not promote love, then it is not from the Spirit of God, but is a counterfeit, a religious spirit.
